Seeing Sima You Yue walk over, Xia Chang Tian and Zhao Xiang Qi then sighed in relief .
“Why are you here?” Xia Chang Tian questioned .
“I got the first place, so my Senior Brother came here to celebrate with me . He heard from me about what happened outside the city, so he wants to come here and take a look, see if he can see anything . We went there yesterday as I have to meet Pavilion Leader Shao outside the city this morning . ” Sima You Yue explained .
“Luckily you guys didn’t come here in the late night . ” Xia Chang Tian said .
“What exactly happened here? Why is there such a thick devil aura here?” Sima You Yue asked in astonishment .
“Not sure yet, but it’s definitely not a small matter . ” Gao Zhi Hong replied .
“Where is the Pavilion Master?” Wu Lingyu asked anxiously, “He reached here last night . ”
“Nobody saw him . ” Xia Chang Tian continued, “We found some dismembered body parts, but none of it is his . ”
“I will contact the Pavilion . ” Wu Lingyu said as he went aside .
Not long after, a spatial tunnel opened up and a group of people came out from there . What rather surprised Sima You Yue was that Nalan Lan was inside too .
Nalan Lan was shocked to see Sima You Yue and quickly looked away with a cold face, as if she didn’t know her .
Sima You Yue saw her and couldn’t help but remembered that scene where she ran away from the lightning from last time, the corner of her lips faintly curled up into a smile .
“Your Highness . ” People from Sage Pavilion greeted Wu Lingyu .
Shao Yun Xiao wasn’t there, so he would be the highest ranking here now .
“Envoy, did you bring the thing?” Wu Lingyu asked .
“I brought it . ” Ning Tai took out a box and handed it to Wu Lingyu with both hands .
Wu Lingyu opened the box, inside was a broken nameplate .
“Holy Son, please . ” Ning Tai said .
Wu Lingyu nodded and congealed a ball of white spiritual energy, that ball of spiritual energy wrapped around the nameplate and immediately, a ray of white light shot out the scene of Shao Yun Xiao’s death in front of everyone .
At the same time, the head pavilion of the inner region Sage Pavilion and other pavilions had the same scene .
“What is that?” Ning Tai cried out, “How did it become like this?!”
They initially thought that the murderer of the Pavilion Master would surface, but they could only see black pitches of acid, nothing else, it looked like he was killed in a black space .
“It looked like it’s in the body of a spirit beast . ” Zhao Xiang Qi claimed .
“Should be some kind of devil beast . ” Xia Chang Tian continued, “It might be some almighty from the devil realm . ”
Others from the Sage Pavilion also noticed that there were some devil aura still lingering around here .
“Why will there be an almighty from the devil realm appear here?” Wu Lingyu asked .
“It’s still unclear, we can only continue investigating . ” Xia Chang Tian continued, “Zhi Hong, you guys continue investigating here, we will talk after we finish today’s last round of alchemy contest . ”
Today was the last round of competition for the first team, everyone was already waiting in the arena, to prevent causing too much panics, they had to proceed with the contest .
Xia Chang Tian and Zhao Xiang Qi left the village in the mountains and went back to Cloud Sea City, the rest stayed and continued to investigate and search . Sima You Yue also stayed to keep Wu Lingyu company .
“I didn’t expect that you’re still alive . ” Nalan Lan walked to Sima You Yue and said faintly .
“Me too, didn’t expect that you’re still alive . ” Sima You Yue refuted .
“I heard you get first place for the alchemy contest, it’s a surprise . ” Nalan Lan continued, “Seeing you like this, it’s hard to believe that you used to keep in contact with that thrash . ”
“Seeing you when you act like you’re holy, it’s also hard to believe that you used to keep in contact with that vicious and merciless person . ” Sima You Yue continued, “But, come to think of it, you used to love acting pure . ”
“You’re still as obnoxious as last time . ” Nalan Lan said .
“You too . ” Sima You Yue refuted .
Nalan Lan glared at Sima You Yue, after not seeing him for so many years, this guy had the gift of the gab .
“Don’t glare at me like that, don’t even try to think that I will forget that you and others tried to kill me several times at Yi Lin Continent . ” Sima You Yue glared back at her .
“… . ” Nalan Lan laughed and said, “So? Do you think that you can kill me now?”
“Do you think I can’t?” Sima You Yue laughed evilly, “Do you think you can be free from worries now that you have protection from Sage Pavilion?”
“Hehe, you’re wrong, I have never been worried . ” Nalan Lan continued, “Only I can kill you, you can’t kill me . ”
Sima You Yue pondered as she rolled the illusion array in her hands, thinking if she should just kill her right here and slap her back in the face with actions .
“Lan’er, come here . ” Ning Tai called out for Nalan Lan from the other side .
Ning Tai’s voice lowered Sima You Yue’s rashness, she would be pestered by Sage Pavilion’s members if she killed her right here, right now, she didn’t really have time to deal with them .
“Yes, Envoy Ning . ” Nalan Lan responded in that direction then told Sima You Yue, “I can see from your eyes that you want to kill me, but… let’s see, who will be the one to get killed . ”
After she finished her sentence, she turned around and went to Ning Tai without waiting for Sima You Yue’s response .
“Lan’er, you know that guy?”
“Mm, used to know…”
“Is it? Come here, I got something to tell you . ”
“Okay… . ”
Sima You Yue starred as Nalan Lan left and mumbled, “Okay, we shall see . ”
Members from the Guild and Pill Subdivision investigated the mountain village for the whole day but couldn’t find out anything, people from the Sage Pavilion couldn’t find out anything as well, everyone wasted their effort for nothing .
That night, members from the sect and Divine Devil Valley came to look for her .
“You can go back with them first, this will take a few days to clear up . ” Wu Lingyu said .
Sima You Yue looked at the group of people who were worried incessantly and knew that this matter wouldn’t be easy to handle, it wouldn’t be nice if she, as an outsider, stayed here alone, so she nodded and went out of the village .
Han Miao Shuang, Su Xiao Xiao and Ying Bai Chuan were waiting for her outside .
“Senior Brother, Senior Sister, Senior Brother Ying, why are you guys here?” Sima You Yue asked as she walked towards them .
Han Miao Shuang and the others saw her coming out, looked at her from head to toe and said, “Little Junior Brother, are you alright?”
“I’m alright, I wasn’t here when it happened . ” Sima You Yue replied .
“What exactly happened here? Why would the devil clan appear out of nowhere?”
Sima You Yue looked around and said, “We will talk when we get back . ”
It was so chaotic, some things shouldn’t be said here .
Han Miao Shuang and the rest knew intuitively, Ying Bai Chuan said, “You came out for so long, Master knew something happened here and was worried for you so he asked us to bring you back . ”
“Instructor Mao too . After he heard that something happened outside and heard that you were outside too, the atmosphere almost froze us to death . ” Han Miao Shuang said .
“Let’s go back then . ”
