Xiao Yu could clearly see her current lowly and pathetic appearance from the reflection of Mu Ru Yue’s eyes.
Liu Ye looked coldly at Xiao Yu and said, “Xiao Yu, I will report this case to the elders of the academy. All the best to you.” He then quickly withdrew his gaze and shouted indifferently, “Is there still anyone reaching here? If nobody is coming, this exam shall come to an end. You may leave after handing up the item of your assignment.”
A sinister but charming voice soared through the sky, entering everyone’s ears, once he said that.
“I’m sorry but it seems I’ve arrived late.”
The sunset enveloped the man’s slender and tall body with his purple robes fluttering among the wind. When his purple eyes set on Mu Ru Yue, he was no longer able to shift his gaze away from her. A gentle smile graced his face.
He parted from Mu Ru Yue’s side upon returning. He waited for her to appear before the crowd for a while before reappearing in order to make others fail to notice their actual relationship.
But Ye Wu Chen was extremely unsatisfied with the way they needed to be so sneaky about their relationship tonight. But he just needed to bear with it for a while before he could embrace her into his embrace and not just look at his beloved woman but cannot touch her…
“It seems there’s a need for a change in the academy’s rules.”
Ye Wu Chen sighed inwardly.
‘I wonder which old man set such a peculiar rule…’
“Alright, it’s about time.” Liu Ye nodded before he continued, “All of you may leave after handing up your team’s task item. Those that fail to obtain their task’s assignment will be treated as if they have failed the exam. I hope you all will do better next year.”
There were people that instantly passed their task items upon hearing what he said. But there were all youths that failed to obtain their item, leaving dejectedly…
“Yue Er, why have you previously stop Qian Ye from saying the truth?”
Li Sha turned her head to look at Mu Ru Yue on their way to their dormitory. She asked curiously, “Won’t we be letting that woman off too lightly? It can only be treated as irresponsible for her to dump us at God Mountain. But she had set us up by tossing Attracting Beast Powder at us…”
Mu Ru Yue smiled lightly as she replied, “How shall we tell them how we managed to break out under the group assault attack by demon beasts led by a God-king Ranked beast? How do you think we will be able to explain this matter to them?”
Li Sha was stunned for a moment. Her deep blue large eyes brimmed with curiosity as she blinked toward Mu Ru Yue.
“I am not keen for them to know about Little Teng’s existence.”
Mu Ru Yue raised her head slightly and continued with a voice without a tinge of warmth, “Moreover, even if we told them what truly happened, nobody will believe us. She can entirely take her way out by saying that we were the ones that brought the Attracting Beast Powder. On the contrary, if we said she abandoned us, it will make it impossible for her to explain her way out. This is due to the crowd’s perception that we won’t be able to escape under the claws of that many demon beasts!”
‘More importantly, Little Teng is my trump card. I don’t want to expose it so early in the game…’
Li Sha was still a little unsatisfied as she said, “That woman still had it easy!”
“Easy? No!” Mu Ru Yue shook her head as she sniggered and said, “Her good days are over. Furthermore, Qian Ye should be the one settling this matter, right?”
Momentarily, everyone’s gaze shot toward Qian Ye.
Qian Ye remained silent for a moment before she raised her head and said, “What Yue Er said is right. Since she had set me up, I won’t let her off lightly! She won’t be able to do to me now that we are within the academy unless I accept her challenge! I will make her pay the price for setting us up once I get stronger!”
