Chapter: 1228


Lin Zhifei smiled faintly, and his clear eyes were calm as he looked as distant and handsome as usual. "Senior Brother, you’re too kind. I’m a Xuan Master, while he’s a heavenly doctor. There’s nothing much to compare actually."

He didn’t really care about this matter.

"Heh, I just feel like that kid knows how to promote himself! He just came to the academy two months ago, and almost everyone knows about him! Many people say that he’s the most outstanding one out of all the new students, but I don’t think so! Just now, I heard quite a few people on the heavenly doctor’s side say that Chu Yue has no intentions of fighting for a spot on the Qing Yun Ranking this time. I think it’s most likely because he knows he’s not good enough, so he just gave up!"

Lin Zhifei shook his head. "If he’s someone who doesn’t live up to his name, His Grace… I’m sure Senior Brother Rong Xiu won’t think of him so highly."

Although he didn’t interact with Rong Xiu much, he had seen that man’s manner and aura at the banquet. Chu Yue is definitely not someone who fools around if he has caught Rong Xiu’s eye. 

"I forgot that you’re also from one of the Sky-Cloud Empire’s divisions." That young man shrugged his shoulders and didn’t continue talking, but he still didn’t care much about Lin Zhifei. He just thought that Lin Zhifei was afraid to offend Rong Xiu, which was why he purposely said that.

Lin Zhifei knew that the other party had misunderstood. His lips trembled, but he didn’t explain further. His personality was originally like that—he would do his own things properly, and he wouldn’t care much about the rest.

While thinking, he looked up toward the heavenly doctor’s side.

They were a distance away, and there were quite a few people in between. Actually, he couldn’t really see much when standing here; he could only forcefully see a long and straight figure.

Although Lin Zhifei could only see half of his side profile, the other party’s extraordinary aura still stood out from the crowd. People noticed him instantly.

That young man stood upright and looked pure. He looked up slightly, as if he were looking at the Qing Yun Ranking and also as if he were in deep thought.

Lin Zhifei took a few glances and retracted his gaze as extremely faint confusion flashed across his eyes. Back then, that person said she also wanted to come to Ling Xiao Academy. However, I haven’t seen her at all. I wonder if she will come. 

Lin Zhifei making it onto the Qing Yun Ranking caused quite a huge commotion. After many people heard the news, they all sized him up curiously.

Quite a few of them had the same thoughts as the previous man as they all wanted to see who was the most outstanding one out of all the students recruited recently.

Lin Zhifei was the first to get onto the ranking, and he was currently at the top of the herd. If Chu Yue couldn’t get onto the ranking, he would be humiliated.

"Next, Chu Yue!"

It was finally Chu Liuyue’s turn.

The crowd fell silent.

Chu Liuyue could clearly feel that all the gazes had landed on her. She walked forward.

Elder Wan Zheng smiled and looked at her. "Chu Yue, who do you want to challenge?"

He was asking about the people on the heavenly doctor list.

To Elder Wan Zheng, his disciple was already a ninth-grade heavenly doctor. Even though his disciple temporarily couldn’t be compared to those people at the front, he could still challenge the people at the back without a problem.

If it were another student who had just broken through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor, Elder Wan Zheng would definitely not be this confident. However, this was Chu Yue. Everything seemed possible.

The techniques she used when producing pills were very smooth and well-versed. Although she had just broken through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor, she didn’t lose out to other ninth-grade heavenly doctors. Hence, Elder Wan Zheng was very interested in seeing his disciple get onto the Qing Yun Ranking!

However, Chu Liuyue’s reply stunned him. "Mentor, must I choose?"

Elder Wan Zheng was dazed. "Why? Don’t you want to?"

Chu Liuyue pressed her lips against each other. "With my current abilities, I’m afraid… I might not win, so why don’t we wait a while…"

Elder Wan Zheng widened his mouth in shock. W-what’s going on? Chu Yue really doesn’t want to challenge the Qing Yun Ranking? But he clearly has already broken through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor! Besides, with his current talent and sensitivity in this aspect, he does have a chance of winning. Why—

"Have you thought it through?" Elder Wan Zheng was still in much disbelief.

In the academy, countless students looked up to the Qing Yun Ranking. They trained hard just to occupy a spot on it.

It would be fine if it were someone who is relatively weaker. Chu Yue clearly has hopes of entering the ranking, so why did he reject it? 

"This chance is rare!" Elder Wan Zheng glanced at the few elders not far away and looked like he was put in a difficult spot.

Chu Liuyue’s heart tingled, and she suddenly recalled the sentence Elder Bo Yan said the day before. Elder Wan Zheng has already spread the news of me breaking through and becoming a ninth-grade heavenly doctor. 

As if to confirm her thoughts, Elder Wan Zheng coughed at the next moment and lowered his voice. "Disciple, it’s not that I want to put you in a difficult spot, but… I’ve already made a bet with them… You see… Even if you think you don’t have a stable chance of winning, why don’t you just go and try… Hm?"

Even if he loses, it will be good to let the fellas see that Chu Yue has already broken through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor! Why would he directly give up? If I go back, they’ll definitely ridicule me. 

Chu Liuyue was speechless.

"Disciple, have you forgotten the agreement you had with me before?" Elder Wan Zheng glanced at Chu Liuyue deeply.

Back then, they had already agreed that Chu Yue would enter the Qing Yun Ranking as soon as possible!

Having all the herbs I can is indeed a huge temptation… Chu Liuyue pondered for a moment. "Okay!"
