Hearing Chu Liuyue’s reply, Elder Wan Zheng looked elated. "Then, who do you want to challenge? The last few people on the heavenly doctor list are all ninth-grade heavenly doctors!"
He meant that Chu Liuyue could try to challenge any of them.
Chu Liuyue looked up. "I would like to choose Senior Brother Tang Rui."
"Tang Rui?" Elder Wan Zheng followed her line of sight and looked over. Hm, the hundredth on the heavenly doctor list. Why did this child become so cautious after not seeing him for a few days?
Elder Wan Zheng stroked his beard. Is he traumatized from being locked up at Fengmin Mountain?
"Are you sure it’s him?"
Chu Liuyue nodded lightly.
Seeing that she had made up her mind, Elder Wan Zheng agreed. So be it then! Anyway, this is the first time. He can just start on a good note!
"Tang Rui!" Elder Wan Zheng looked at a young man in the crowd.
Tang Rui looked like he was in his twenties. He wasn’t tall, and his figure was rather round. His face was white and round like dough as he had a smile on his face and looked very harmonious.

"Greetings, Elder Wan Zheng." Tang Rui was just standing at the side, so he naturally heard the conversation between the mentor-disciple duo, knowing that he had become Chu Liuyue’s target.
"Tang Rui, guide Chu Yue a little," said Elder Wan Zheng.
Tang Rui nodded and laughed. "Sure."
Then, he looked at Chu Liuyue with an even more polite smile. "Junior Brother Chu Yue, please—"
Chu Liuyue raised her hand. "Senior Brother Tang Rui, please!"
At the middle of the mountain.
With his hands behind his back, Rong Xiu stood in front of the door as he looked toward Dong Huang Clock Tower. Although he couldn’t see Qing Ming Square’s situation from here, Jiuheng Peak was high enough, so he could see Qing Ming Square.
"She went to participate in the assessment?" A child-like voice sounded from the room. Even though it was child-like, it had a stern nature to it that one couldn’t underestimate.
Rong Xiu nodded. "As long as she’s in the academy, it’s something she can’t avoid."
Her name had now been spread far and wide in the academy. Her every move would be noticed by the crowd. It would be weird if she refused to try getting onto the Qing Yun Ranking.
Dugu Mobao snorted, "With her current abilities, it’s impossible if she wants to break the barrier and let her name surface again. However, it’s her name at the end of the day. Her strength is sealed inside."
Rong Xiu smiled faintly, turned around, and looked inside. "Senior, if you’re worried, why don’t you take action directly?"
Dugu Mobao snorted. "Didn’t you already make preparations on that Qing Yun Ranking? Do you still need me?"
"I should do it." Rong Xiu smiled without a doubt. Of course, I need to dote on my own wife.
"But everything lies in her hands at the end of the day."
Qing Ming Square was demarcated into many small regions as venues.
Chu Liuyue and Tang Rui were standing in one of the arenas.
There weren’t many people on the heavenly doctor’s side, so it was normally very spacious. But this time, many people squeezed into the competition venue’s surroundings.
Other than the students who were also heavenly doctors, quite a few people from the Xuan Master side and the warrior side had also run over.
Chu Liuyue rubbed her temple as if she had a headache. It seems like I’m really ‘famous’ in Ling Xiao Academy.
"Junior Brother Chu Yue, please—" Tang Rui placed his cauldron in front.
Chu Liuyue followed him closely.
The surroundings fell silent.
The two people took their herbs out respectively and started refining them in the cauldron.
Tang Rui had coincidentally seen Chu Yue merging pills before and knew that he wasn’t weak, so he didn’t dare to look down on the latter. From the very start, he had already gathered all his focus.
On the other hand, Chu Liuyue didn’t think much as she started refining the pill in an orderly manner.
Even though she could successfully produce ninth-grade pills with her current abilities, she still had to spend quite an amount of effort to win this competition.
She moved her wrist and placed the herbs into the cauldron in order.
The red fire burned brightly, and the unique bitter fragrance of the herbs gradually spread around.
Elder Wan Zheng looked at it for a while and gasped in shock. This kid doesn’t seem like he’s producing the pill he previously produced! If I haven’t guessed wrongly, he wants to produce the Pei Yuan Pill?
Even though the Pei Yuan Pill was a beginner ninth-grade pill, it was much better than that one in all areas. Of course, the requirements were also elevated. This was also one of the formulas Elder Wan Zheng had given Chu Liuyue a few days ago.
"This kid is too impulsive…" Elder Wan Zheng couldn’t help but mutter softly. Chu Yue obtained this formula not long ago, and he might not have even understood it completely, yet he was competing with it? It would be a problem to even produce it…
But since the competition had already started, the outsiders could only quietly observe.
Actually, it wasn’t Chu Liuyue’s first time producing the Pei Yuan Pill. When she had just broken through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor in her previous life, the first pill she produced was the Pei Yuan Pill. Hence, this was one of the pills she was most familiar with.
When Elder Wan Zheng previously tested her, she didn’t choose this as she didn’t want to reveal too much about herself.
A few days ago, the Pei Yuan Pill’s formula was coincidentally amongst the ones he sent over. Now, it became logical that she produced it.
That formula was already deeply engraved in her memory. She didn’t even need to think to perfectly execute the herb placement sequence and the time and strength needed to refine them.
Her movements were very smooth and beautiful!
Tang Rui looked up unintentionally and glanced over. His heart clenched. With such techniques and him looking so much at ease, how does he look like someone that just broke through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor?
