Chapter 325 – Jealous Zang Qing Xue Part 3
“My aunt had talent second only to my parents.” Zi Qian Jing’s gaze became gentle, his gaze still remained on Mu Ru Yue. “She and my mother met each other during an exploration. Perhaps it was the life and death situation that made them become friends for life. It was precisely due to my aunt that my parents knew each other. Actually, she was just my father’s cousin, but her relationship with my mother was really strong ever since I was young. My father often became jealous due to this and he even warned her a couple of times not to stick to my mother all the time.
“My aunt’s personality is rather wild so she likes creating trouble. She would often throw punches without even speaking and she was frequently scolded by my grandparents for creating problems. However, my mother always sided her. Since my grandparents doted greatly on my mother, they would let it go after chiding her a little…”
Mu Ru Yue kept quiet. Was Zi Qian Jing’s parents’ experience so similar to hers? At this moment, she unexpectedly suspected that Zi Qian Jing was the son of Zi Huang and Senior Yue.
But from Nangong Zi Feng’s memory, she clearly saw that adorable child fall into slumber and was even sealed in a time-frozen place. He was just five years old then.
Moreover, she had personally heard from Nangong Zi Feng that there weren’t any survivors of the Zi family thousands of years back. How could that aunt escape the calamity as well?
Thus, this must just be a coincidence…
“Jing Er, It isn’t impossible for you to stay in my room, but you aren’t allowed to climb onto the bed and cultivate at my side.”
She just couldn’t harden her heart against this youth…
Zi Qian Jing smiled contently. He didn’t mind standing the night for her if it allowed him to stay, nevermind being unable to climb onto her bed.
The next morning.
Clamours arose in the alchemy hall.
Suddenly, the heated crowd instantly quieted as all of their gazes shot outside the room, landing on the oncoming two figures…
The youth was divinely handsome with a strand of grass hanging out of his mouth. His smile was languid, but pleased. His eyes often darted to Mu Ru Yue who was at his side and when he looked at her the cheeriness in his eyes intensified. It seemed as though he could only hold her figure in his eyes…
Mu Ru Yue’s expression was cold. She subconsciously narrowed her eyes when she looked at Zang Qing Xue sitting on a yellow cushion.
“Who are they?”
An intrigued voice sounded within the crowd, “Can it be the new students?”
A glimmer flashed in Zang Qing Xue’s eyes as she smiled and introduced them, “Miss Liu Li, the youth is known as Zi Qian Jing. He is indeed a new student. The woman by his side is even more impressive. Do you know she was able to enter the academy using the exam?”
If it were ordinary people, they would be amazed by her passing the exam. However, who were they that could enter the Central Region Academy? They were disciples of powered families. They weren’t here just to study. For example, Zang Qing Xue’s goal was to find a genius husband to wed.
“Exam? Tsk! She is just a peasant without backing.”
Several people laughed when they heard her mockery, but there were still a couple that genuinely wanted to improve their abilities. Those people didn’t mock Mu Ru Yue but just looked at her with astonishment.
This young girl’s innate talent mustn’t be bad if she could pass the exam and enter the academy…
“Miss Liu Li’s statement is erred.” Zang Qing Xue looked at Mu Ru Yue before shifting to the red-cladded girl. With a slight smile, she continued, “She does have backing and is rather powerful. The Sheng Domain’s Xiao family is her backing.”
