Chapter 1244: Fight for the Lightning Bolt

Chu Liuyue raised her eyes.

Outside Jiuheng Peak, a faint golden barrier shone quietly in the dark.

Her heart tingled, and she looked toward a place below the mountain.

A long figure was rapidly flying over—it was Rong Xiu!

His speed was extremely fast. In the blink of an eye, he flew to her!

The two of them looked at each other.

Chu Liuyue said, “I want to go to Million Wine Mountain.”

Rong Xiu slightly nodded. “I’ll go with you.”

Without any explanation and with just an exchange of gazes, they could tell what each other was thinking.

Chu Liuyue’s heart felt slightly warm, and her slightly pale lips curled up. “Are you not asking me why I’m going there?”

Rong Xiu raised his brows. “That’s not important. As long as you want to go, I’ll go with you.”

As he spoke, his gaze swept across Chu Liuyue’s hand that was holding the Chi Xiao Sword tightly. “Follow me.”

He then waved his wrist lightly, and the barrier on the mountain suddenly rippled! Following that, an opening was made!

His figure moved, and he rushed out first! Chu Liuyue followed him closely!

After the two of them left, the barrier rapidly closed again, covering everything silently. From the outside, it was like nothing had happened.

It was still late at night, and the entire academy was quiet.

The two of them left Jiuheng Peak and went to Million Wine Mountain.

Rong Xiu seemed to be very familiar with that place as well as he didn’t stop at all on the way there.

As he was worried that the Chi Xiao Sword’s movements would attract attention, he had even specifically set up a barrier around Chu Liuyue to cover her aura completely.

In this manner, the two of them arrived below Million Wine Mountain successfully.

The barrier around Million Wine Mountain couldn’t be seen in the dark. One could only see the rising mountains within and the shadows that were cast by the trees.

The surroundings were quiet, but Chu Liuyue’s heart beat even more quickly.

The Chi Xiao Sword in her hands let out a weird sensation.

She looked down and saw that the bolts of silver lightning—which were originally covering it—had completely disappeared.

The golden pattern—which finally had lit up halfway with much difficulty—vaguely looked like it was going to dim again. This was because too few lightning bolts were triggered previously and the sword soul couldn’t completely become a weapon soul. Thus, it was stuck in the middle, neither here nor there.

If she couldn’t give it more lightning bolts, she would fail this refinement, and whatever she suffered earlier would amount to nothing! Hence… she couldn’t give up just yet!

Chu Liuyue looked at the barrier before her. A tremendous aura exuded from it!

Ever since that incident happened to her, the elders seemed to have strengthened Million Wine Mountain’s defensive barrier. Given her current state, it was impossible for her to barge in.

But luckily, there was Rong Xiu!

He stood before the barrier and raised his hand.

A few golden rays of light shot out and outlined a strange Xuan formation in mid-air. That small golden Xuan formation then stuck to the barrier lightly.


An opening rapidly appeared!

Chu Liuyue glanced at Rong Xiu in shock. Seeing his composed appearance and calm gaze, she couldn’t help but ask, “Rong Xiu, this isn’t your first time doing such things, right?”

His technique looked too smooth!

Rong Xiu’s thin lips curled up slightly. He glanced at her in a seemingly smiling manner. “I learned it all from you.”

Chu Liuyue was speechless. What exactly did the previous me do in the academy? From what Rong Xiu has said, it seems like I led him astray…

“Go up. I’ll tell you these things when you get back.” Or perhaps, she will remember it unintentionally, like the medicinal garden incidents.

As Rong Xiu spoke, he stepped past the barrier.

Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in, raised her sword, and walked in.

After pa.s.sing through the barrier, her first reaction was to look at the mountain peak. Without surprise, a figure was standing at the highest point.

Dark clouds gathered in the sky as lightning bolts flashed and kept striking! It seemed like he was refining a weapon.

Some of the lightning bolts landed in front of him while others landed in the fountain.

Even if they were such a long distance away, Chu Liuyue could still feel the shocking strength contained in those lightning bolts.

She licked her pale and cracked lips. This… That’s what I need the most! However, that person seems like an academy elder as well. It’d be rather inappropriate if I directly rushed over.

But just when Chu Liuyue was in deep thought about how to discuss with that person, her Chi Xiao Sword struggled and rushed out!


The Chi Xiao Sword drew a faint golden line in mid-air! In the blink of an eye, it had already rushed to the top of the mountain!

Chu Liuyue was taken aback and immediately went after it without thinking! I just thought for a moment, and the Chi Xiao Sword took the chance to directly leave my hands! It even went straight for that mountain peak! No—it is going for the lightning bolts!

Chu Liuyue was already chasing at full speed, but no matter how capable she was, how could she be faster than a supreme Yuan instrument?

Very quickly, the Chi Xiao Sword directly rushed up under her shocked gaze!

Those bolts of lightning suddenly sensed something as they changed direction and struck the sword!


Sounds reverberated throughout the area as sparks flew everywhere!

Chu Liuyue couldn’t open her eyes due to the sharp and bright light, but she could only endure the pain and watch on!

The lightning bolts that should’ve landed were all intercepted by the Chi Xiao Sword midway!

Shang Yulin was originally focused on refining his weapon when he detected a strange force.

He suddenly looked over and saw something flash across! Then, bolts of lightning exploded above his head!
