When Xia Zhang Tian and the others had appeared in the city, the Xuan Qiu clan did not come over, so they hadn’t met . Now that this person had suddenly appeared, he and Zhao Xiang Qi weren’t the slightest bit prepared .
It was only when Xuan Qiu Lai left and Sima You Yue notified them that they finally came back to their senses .
“You Yue, who was that?” Xia Zhang Tian asked .
“Someone from the Xuan Qiu Clan . President, did you not know of it?” Sima You Yue was quite surprised .
“People from the Xuan Qiu clan have come?” Xia Zhang Tian cried out with surprise, “We didn’t think that the hidden clan would appear here as well . ”
“Since that power from the inner regions actually dared to appear here, I’m guessing that they no longer plan to conceal their identities . ” Zhao Xiang Qi said . “If it were not for that expert, we would have been hard pressed to take those people down . ”
“Let’s not speak of that first . Let’s talk again after we’ve cleaned this place up . ” Gao Zhi Hong said .
“Mm, let’s first finish things up here . ” Xia Zhang Tian replied .
He wasn’t good at clearing things up here, but someone helped him to get it done .
Very quickly, they captured Song Chang Jie and Zhao Xiang Rui’s men . They discarded the carcasses directly, a warning to those who harbored intentions but had not yet displayed them .
Now that things had reached this extent, the competition could not carry on . As such, they finally discussed and decided that the pill competition would be delayed by ten days . They were to return to their places of residence to wait until then .
Zhao Xiang Qi and Red took the people back to the Pill Subdivision while, since those from the academy had contributed much, they followed Xia Zhang Tian and the others back to the Alchemist Guild .
This was their second time coming here . It was different from the time that they had been captured . This time, they had a very polite welcome .
The entire Cloud Sea City had heard of how she rescued Xia Zhang Tian . She was able to use spatial lock at such a young age, and was also an alchemist who was going to participate in the competition . Adding on to that the fact that she was the kind of the rocs was her contracted beast, many powers were developing an interest in her, wondering if they could poach her over under their banner .
As she walked down the street, she felt like a piece of meat being appraised by the passer-bys . Many would start discussing amongst themselves when they saw her, saying that she was this and that .
She didn’t like this kind of feeling as she pulled Little Seven and Han Miao Shuang with her to the medicinal garden to relax .
She called Little Roar out to fuse with her . However, before he helped her to open the barrier, it disappeared .
“There’s somebody here . ”
Sima You Yue looked inside and saw Xuan Qiu He sitting in the garden looking at them .
“What are you doing here?” Little Seven asked .
“Smelling the medicinal herbs . This is something I have to do everyday . ” Xuan Qiu He said with a smile .
“Is it?” Little Seven took a whiff, “The herbs here smell the same . It’s not as good as the ones you have . ”
“To see the world in a single flower, and enlightenment in a single leaf . Although these herbs are not expensive, they have their own distinctive smell . ” Xuan Qiu He said, “Not all herbs are the same . ”
The tranquil aura wafting from Xuan Qiu He calmed Sima You Yue’s aura that had been rather agitated from battle .
“I have to thank you for today . ” She said as she walked in front of him .
“I’ve said this before, we are friends . Since I found out that you were going to participate in that event, it’s only a given that I should send someone to keep an eye out . ” Xuan Qiu He said, “Between you and me, there is no need for thanks . ”
Sima You Yue was rather embarrassed . Why did this guy say it as if they both of them were really close?
As expected, Han Miao Shuang and the others misunderstood .
“Junior Brother, are you very close to this Lord?” Han Miao Shuang asked .
“Let me introduce you . He is the Young Master of the Xuan Qiu clan . This is my Senior Sister Han Miao Shuang . This is my Senior, Su Xiao Xiao and this is Rainbow . ”
“Young Master Xuan Qiu? The Young Master who saved you today?” Han Miao Shuang said .
“That’s right . ” Sima You Yue said, “He and I are friends, and you know when we met . I told you guys the last time, didn’t I . The one who went outside with me . ”
“Oh, so he’s the friend you were referring to!” Han Miao Shuang said, “Then you haven’t met for long?!”
“There are some people who have known each other for a thousand years, but will never become friends . There are those that need only a moment’s glance . ” Xuan Qiu He said .
Sima You Yue nodded her head agreeably, she believed in this too . Affinity was important, but it was not absolute either .
“That’s true too . ” Han Miao Shuang said, “Some people can just never be friends . Since you guys are friends, go ahead and chat . We’ll go to other places to wander around . ”
“Since you are You Yue’s seniors, we can go together . After the incident occurred, things should probably be more peaceful around here . ” Xuan Qiu He said .
With a wave of his hand, the barrier that had been dissipated was brought back to life .
“Since that’s the case, then we can all just stay here . ” Sima You Yue said, “The people outside are really giving me a headache . ”
“You Yue, I didn’t expect you to be so outstanding . Those from the academy will definitely increase their strength in other areas as well . They see you as a rare talent, so it’s natural that they will want to build up relationships with you . ” Xuan Qiu He said .
He had long since found out about Sima You Yue and was extremely surprised back then as well . He had taken quite a while to digest the information .
A person from the lower main continent was actually able to reach this point within such a short period of time . He didn’t know whether he should say that her talents were ridiculous, or that others were too weak .
Sima You Yue saw how calm he was and suddenly said, “You wouldn’t have been the one who notified Rainbow and the others, would you?”
Xuan Qiu He smiled, “If those from the inner regions didn’t involve themselves, we wouldn’t have been able to step out either . I just happened to know that they were nearby, so I sent someone to let them know . ”
So this meant that she knew long ago that she had the king of the rocs .
Thinking about it, that was expected . Even if he didn’t check it out, those from his sect would send others to check up on her . For someone as powerful as he was, it wasn’t difficult to find out what she had done in the past .
“So you are the one who sent someone to inform us!” Rainbow beamed, “Thank you!”
“You are welcome . ” Xuan Qiu He said, “However, for the events that occurred today, those powers from the inner sect will definitely take their anger out on you . You have to be careful . ”
“I will . ” Sima You Yue nodded .
“Weren’t you here smelling the medicinal smells? How did you know what happened over there?”
“I can’t see for a thousand miles, but I have good hearing . ” Xuan Qiu He smiled pointedly .
“Your guard must have told you when he returned . ” Little Seven said .
Xuan Qiu He didn’t deny it, but he didn’t admit to it . He didn’t plan to tell her that he was the one who had chased after this information .
“Take this . ” Xuan Qiu He took out a jade piece and handed it to Sima You Yue .
“What is this?”
“When you head into the inner sect, if you encounter any danger, you can show them this token . It might be of use . ” Xuan Qiu He said .
This jade token was in the shape of an orchid . It was like its owner, clear, simple and elegant . It was intoxicating .
If only he could see it in person…
