I Only Appreciate Him For His Talents

Yuhang Zhenren was puzzled as he looked at her pretty face. “You… You came because of him?” Of course, had it not been for that little fella, why would she call Yuhang Zhenren her master? In fact, her external abilities were comparable to that of Yuhang Zhenren’s.
Gu Xijiu did not answer; she waited patiently for Yuhang Zhenren’s answer. She did not expect Yuhang Zhenren to answer her in a solemn tone. “Chongsheng, you have achieved so much at such a young age. It is obvious that you are a genius. You are still young and should leave matters pertaining to relationship aside; focus on your training instead. One day, you will be a successful person.”
Gu Xijiu was annoyed. It seemed that Yuhang Zhenren had treated her as an admirer of Shen Nianmo.
Yuhang Zhenren continued, “Although Nianmo looks like an adult, he is essentially still a 6-year-old child. He is not worth you adoring him. Chongsheng, you are mature, and I hope that you will prioritize the bigger picture.”
Gu Xijiu rubbed the inner corners of her eyebrows and cut Yuhang Zhenren’s nagging off. “Zhenren, you have misunderstood. I do not have any special feelings for him. He is still a child; how will I hold such an intention towards him?” She would not do such a thing!
Gu Xijiu looked at Yuhang Zhenren sincerely and continued, “I only appreciate him for his talent, and would like to help him with his training, so that his external abilities can improve.”
Yuhang Zhenren was dubious. “You want to help him with his training? How are you going to help? Why would you have such an intention? From how you guys spoke to each other that day, it seemed like that was your first time seeing each other, and I have never heard Nianmo mention you beforehand as well.” Gu Xijiu had such proficient external abilities, with such great capabilities. Had Shen Nianmo known her beforehand, he would have mentioned her.
Yuhang Zhenren’s had incessant questions, while Gu Xijiu only answered in seven words. “I only appreciate him for his talents.”
Yuhang Zhenren was speechless.
“What do you mean by appreciating him for his talents? I think it is just love at first sight! And you have cracked such an excuse! Huh!” Qing Luo, who had been standing there, could not help but say it aloud.
Gu Xijiu landed her gaze on Qing Luo. The young lady was agitated; her face was flushed. Obviously, she saw Gu Xijiu as her rival. When the young lady got jealous, she would become irrational. Hence, Gu Xijiu smiled, and on her pretty face emerged two dimples. “You are right; it was love at first sight. He is the love of my heart, the light from the moon, and my red-colored rose.” She cringed at herself as she spoke.
The other apprentices in the hall were also shaken!
Qing Luo was dumbfounded. The young lady was so mad that her face had turned pale!
“Huh, there is no use if you like him because he will never like you back! He knows that you would latch onto him; that is why he left! And he had left with Sister Jinghua. Sister Jinghua’s medical skills are a thousand times better than yours! Her master’s medicinal skills are ten thousand times better than yours! Big brother does not need you to help him with his training. He has masters to teach him!”
Gu Xijiu turned to look at Yuhang Zhenren. “Should Nianmo not be learning under you for ten years? Has some other master apprenticed him already?”
Yuhang Zhenren heaved a sigh. “Nianmo is extremely smart. Within a matter of five years, he had learned everything that I could teach him. He is only coming back this time to bid his goodbye. Yesterday, Fengxing’s apprentice, Guan Jinghua, came to fetch him, and after having his farewell meal, he left with Guan Jinghua.”
Gu Xijiu was in disbelief. The little fella had tricked her! Which means she allowed herself to be apprenticed to a master for no reason.After giving off a sigh, she turned and left.
