Chapter 1252: Secret
Chu Liuyue sighed in her heart. I knew I couldn’t hide anything from him.
Dugu Mobao seemed to have countless pairs of eyes in the academy. No matter what happened, he could rapidly know about it.
Chu Liuyue long felt that this incident was too weird and strange, but she could never get an answer.
It was like now.
There were only the four of them at Million Wine Mountain the night before. With the barrier protecting and covering them, the people outside the mountain knew nothing of it. Logically speaking, other than the four of them, only Elder Bo Yan knew about this. And they were the ones who willingly told Elder Bo Yan.
Dugu Mobao actually guessed it so accurately… It really isn’t normal.
“Yes.” Chu Liuyue chose to be honest. She didn’t feel that she had the ability to lie to Dugu Mobao.
Dugu Mobao knitted his brows slightly, and his gaze became dangerous. “Did you forget what I told you before?”
Of course, Chu Liuyue didn’t.
Back then, because Dugu Mobao stated that she wasn’t allowed to go to Million Wine Mountain at that time, she had obediently resisted until now. Even when Tuan Zi always looked at the fountain reluctantly, she didn’t stay there any longer.
“Today’s situation was rather special…” explained Chu Liuyue rather helplessly. “I went to refine the weapon soul.”
Dugu Mobao coldly snorted and turned away, “Even if you don’t go to Million Wine Mountain, there are other ways to do so. There are many mountains at the Armory Refinement area, and there are quite a few masters. If you go find them, it will be the same outcome. Why must you do this?”
Chu Liuyue’s eyelids twitched. “Big Baby… do you think I can do it?”
Since the first day she entered the academy, she had already heard many rumors regarding the Armory Refinement Masters—arrogant, cold, prefered to be alone, and never came out once in a million years…
She didn’t even have the time to respect and admire them, so how could she think of such a solution? Although she was bold and sometimes arrogant and ill-disciplined, it didn’t mean that she did not know her limits.
Dugu Mobao was stumped. “Of course—”
His voice suddenly trailed off, and a complicated expression quickly flashed across his eyes.
Chu Liuyue didn’t see the momentary change, but she felt that his tone wasn’t right. Thus, she asked curiously, “Of course what?”
Dugu Mobao closed his eyes, and when he opened them again, they were clear. “Nothing. I was negligent.”
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly. She still felt Dugu Mobao’s reply was weird, but she couldn’t pinpoint which part.
“Even if you can’t do it, Rong Xiu can. Yet, he brought you to Million Wine Mountain directly… Hmph!” Dugu Mobao coldly snorted. Does Rong Xiu think that it isn’t chaotic enough!?
Chu Liuyue looked down slightly and didn’t continue. I hadn’t thought about it before, but… Rong Xiu is at the top of the Qing Yun Rank Armory Refinement list! How did I forget about this? Judging by the various academy elders’ att.i.tude toward Rong Xiu… If he stepped forward personally, they might be willing to help me.
But like Dugu Mobao said, he didn’t do so. However, this is also understandable. After all, it is hardest to owe people favors. Comparatively, inviting a few Armory Refinement Masters to help me is much more troublesome than directly going to Million Wine Mountain. Even though choosing the latter option would bring about quite a severe punishment, Rong Xiu definitely had his own reasons for not doing so.
Chu Liuyue thought for a while before walking over and smiling in a flattering manner. “Big Baby, don’t be angry. This incident has pa.s.sed, right? Not only did I come back in one piece, but I even successfully refined the weapon soul. Even if I suffer a little punishment, I gained a lot more!”
Dugu Mobao didn’t say a word. How am I supposed to explain that I wasn’t only worried about that?
After pausing for a moment, Dugu Mobao finally shook his head. “If there’s a next time, I definitely won’t forgive you.”
Chu Liuyue smiled, and her eyes curved up. “Okay!”
Dugu Mobao’s gaze swept across her face. He opened his mouth and finally said, “Since you’ve already refined that weapon soul, you must study it carefully and cultivate properly. There are only so few supreme Yuan instruments in the world. It’s your honor to be able to get one of them, so you must cultivate properly.”
“Definitely.” Chu Liuyue nodded forcefully. After spending so much effort and time, won’t it be a huge waste if I can’t use it fully?
Dugu Mobao nodded, stood up, and planned to leave.
Chu Liuyue couldn’t help but question, “Big Baby, you’re leaving now? Are you not going to stay for a while longer?”
Dugu Mobao stopped in his tracks. “I’ll come back around evening time.”
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly. Ever since we came to Ling Xiao Academy, I have never interacted with Dugu Mobao for a long time during the day. My daily training is all done in the evening to nighttime. It’s as if… he has other things to do at other times. However, what does he need to do daily in Ling Xiao Academy?
Chu Liuyue finally couldn’t help asking, “Big Baby, when you’re not with me, where… are you? If I want to look for you, I don’t even know where to go.”
Dugu Mobao looked back and glanced at her expressionlessly. He lightly said, “You don’t have to find me. If you meet with trouble in the academy, I’ll rush over on my own.”
Then, he turned around to leave.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows even more tightly. What secrets does Big Baby have?
