Chapter 106: The Nalan Clan has an unforeseen event

Sima You Yue's subtle change in expression didn’t escape Sima Lie's old eyes as he stared at her and frowned, saying, "still not going to confess?"

Sima You Yue forced out two dry laughs, saying, "Grandfather, didn’t you say that you were battling with the Full Ape? How would you have seen us?"

She thought that as long as Sima Lie didn’t expose her, she would not directly admit to it.

"hmph, I didn’t see you but I saw that brat from the Qu Clan. The three people beside him should also be the few people from your dorm. They were all there so how could you, this guy, possibly not be there?" Sima Lie said, "Although I was battling, I still saw them during the brief intervals."

When she heard what Sima Lie said, Sima You Yue secretly let out a breath. Right now, he was merely guessing that she was at the mountain slope as an observer. If he knew that she was the person who had stolen the Golden Snake Fruit, the incident involving Mo Sha could no longer be concealed. Furthermore, she would definitely be harshly taught a lesson.

In any case, that Golden Snake Fruit could not be used directly, so when that time came, she would just refine pills and directly feed it to them and that would be settled.

"Hey hey, Grandfather, you weren’t afraid of being injured by the Full Ape either." releasing the worry in her heart allowed Sima You Yue to relax her body.

"The situation the Nalan Clan faced was caused by the few of you?"

Although it was a question, Sima Lie's tone was as if he was just taking it as a confirmation.

Sima You Yue nodded, saying, "I heard them saying that they would come over to our house to cause trouble for us the moment they returned from the Pu Luo Mountain Range, so I might as well just let them remain in the mountain. However, Grandfather, how are those guys now?"

"How else could they be, almost half of the guards that they brought with them died and those that didn’t die had lost half their lives. Nalan Lan's life is currently hanging on by a thread and Nalan He has lost an arm." The joy on Sima Lie's face was unconcealed as he spoke about the tragedy that had befallen the Nalan Clan.

"The two of them actually didn’t die!" Sima You Yue said with some disappointment.

Sima Lie stared at Sima You Yue, saying, "This is really a heavy blow to the Nalan Clan! At the very least, they wouldn’t dare to directly fight with our clan for now."

"Then what about that crappy Great Elder; why is he still coming to make trouble." Sima You Yue pouted.

If Nalan He had really been killed on the Pu Luo Mountain Range like she wished, the head of the clan would have passed away and the Nalan Clan would be thrown into a period of disarray. However, she never thought that he would only have lost an arm.

"What you’re currently thinking isn’t wrong. It’s just that they have been weakened on this front by quite a bit, but the other areas have been strengthened as well." Sima Lie sighed.

"what’s wrong?" Sima You Yue looked at Sima Lie with confusion.

"During the time that you left the capital, the Nalan Clan had, at some unknown time, invited a Alchemist into their residence. Rumours have been going around saying that he is a Alchemist of second rank. Furthermore, at their shop, they have been increasingly selling their goods and greedily eating up all our business. Your eldest brother and second brother have been going crazy over this recently." Sima Lie said, "It’s also because Grandfather has been in a bad mood lately and my relationship with Alchemists are not good. As a result, during this period of time, nobody is willing to step forward and help us."

"No wonder their clan head would act this way. They actually dare to come over to our place to raise a fuss." Sima You Yue got a good grasp of the situation and said, " However, Grandfather, you don’t have to worry. They just have a second ranked Alchemist? We will have one too."

She understood that Alchemists was very attractive to cultivators and there were some Mercenaries that yearned for alchemy. If the Nalan Clan had an Alchemist enter their Clan, the would be able to arrogantly occupy that position of advantage.

However, this was under the prerequisite that the Sima Clan would be unable to find an alchemist. They had confidence in the fact that Sima Lie had bad relations with the Alchemists, so none of them would be willing to enter their clan. However, they would never expect that an Alchemist would appear from within the Sima Clan.

Sima You Yue thought back to the time where she had just entered this world and Sima Lie had given her medicine to eat. The two of them had ridiculed the fact that those Alchemists always walked with their noses high in the air and she even said that she would become an Alchemist. It had not even been half a year since she said that, but she had already fulfilled what she said she would do.

"So what if it’s a second ranked alchemist." she mumbled, " I want to see for myself how powerful that second ranked alchemist is!"

"What did you say?" Sima Lie saw that Sima You Yue was talking to herself and asked.

"Nothing. Grandfather, if there’s nothing else then I will head back first." Sima You Yue said .

"What do you mean nothing else!" Sima Lie thought about how he still had something he had not talked about yet, and asked, "Where have you been these last ten days? Your third brother only said that you left because of some situation but didn’t tell me where you went or what you went to do. You caused me to be worried to death!"

It was only now that Sima You Yue recalled the situation regarding the Spirit Beasts and said "I didn’t really go anywhere, I just went to look for a friend to tame some Spirit Beasts before I returned. Didn’t you say that those people could come at any time? I was just thinking that we didn’t really have any way to increase our strength. It just so happened that the Nalan Clan attracted a few Spirit Masters, right? Then we will use Spirit Beasts to catch up."

After she finished speaking, she called out a few Spirit Beasts from within her Spirit Pearl and the Study Room was suddenly filled with transformed Spirit Beasts.

Sima Lie was shocked by the sudden change that happened right in front of his eyes and looked at Sima You Yue, saying, "Where did all these come from?"

"I told you that I asked my friend to get it done, remember?" Sima You Yue said, "half of this group are Saint Beasts, and only a few of those are third ranked Saint Beasts, so we'll leave those few for my brothers. Their current strength should allow them to tame their second Spirit Beast right? As for those lower ranked ones, we can just sell them away at the shop. We'll take it as offsetting some of the setbacks that occurred because of the pills. The higher ranked ones can be given to a few trustworthy guards to form a contract with. How does that sound, Grandfather?"

Sima Lie looked at all those Spirit Beasts with excitement. He had initially been wanting to find a Beast Tamer Master to help the people in his residence contract some Spirit Beasts, but highly ranked Spirit Beasts weren’t cheap. If they were to go to the Beast Tamer Master Guild, they would only be able to contract those one rank below Saint Beast since those above and of the Saint Beast rank were only found once or twice a month. Aside from having to be provided with a Saint Beast, one still had to spend a large amount of money on the taming fees.

He never expected that Sima You Yue would have settled this problem during the period of time that she was away. He was incomparably excited about this and was, at the same time, praising Sima You Yue's accurate and detailed planning. He had just told her about their current dangers but she had already thought of using Spirit Beasts to increase their strength.

"Oh right, I have something to add. That person told me that the Spirit Beasts she tamed were more special. If they were to be contracted by someone, they would both experience an increase in strength. When they were strong enough, they would be able to directly increase in rank. Furthermore, when the Master increases in rank, the Spirit Beast will also increase in rank." Sima You Yue added.

"What?" Sima Lie suspected that he had heard wrongly and asked again, "You said that it would be able to increase in rank even after forming a contract? And anytime the Master increases in rank, the Spirit Beast will as well?"

"Mm. that's what that person told me. It seems like the way in which she contracted the Spirit Beasts was pretty special. However, I don't know whether it's really true." Sima You Yue said, "Grandfather, first look for men to come and settle these Spirit Beasts. With regards to the Nalan Clan and their pills, it will be settled in awhile."

Chapter 107: Looking for help

Sima Lie saw that Sima You Yue had so much confidence and decided in his heart that he would believe her. It seemed like it had really been a long time since an Alchemist had come to help the Sima Clan.

"Mm, you can return first. I will properly settle these Spirit Beasts." Sima Lie said.

The Sima Clan had suddenly gained so many Spirit Beasts, furthermore, they were under circumstances that nobody else knew about. If they continued to keep this a secret, this would turn into a card that they could play.

As a result, they could only depend on people that they could trust to settle these. Only those who were, towards the clan, faithful to the death would be able to receive this incentive.

"Right, that person told me that this has to remain a secret and they won’t tell others. Alright, I’m heading back." After handing the Spirit Beasts over to Sima Lie, Sima You Yue left the study room and no longer asked anything about the situation related to the Spirit Beasts.

Sima Lie had lived a hundred over years more than her so he would definitely be more prudent and rational about settling these kinds of things.

Returning back to her own room, she instructed Chun Jian and the others not to disturb her as she locked herself in the house. With a flash, she entered the Spirit Pearl.

"Mo Sha." She came beside the Golden Snake Fruit tree and she saw Mo Sha sitting beside it.

Mo Sha opened his pair of enchanting eyes and when she saw them, she was suddenly confused.

Why was it that she felt that it was so familiar every time she saw Mo Sha's eyes?

"What do you want?" Mo Sha asked.

"I want to quickly become a second ranked Alchemist " Sima You Yue held back the thoughts in her heart and said.


Sima You Yue explained the entire situation with the Nalan Clan once over and said, "Because Grandfather has never cared about those Alchemists, their relationship isn’t good. At this point, those Alchemists will be unwilling to help us. Wanting to look for a more relaxed Alchemist outside is also not easy. As a result, I need to quickly become a second ranked Alchemist. Only then would I be able to contend with the Nalan Clan.

Mo Sha knitted his brows, saying, "It hasn’t been long since you became a first ranked Alchemist. Wanting to become a second ranked Alchemist in such a short period of time won’t be an easy thing to accomplish."

"I know, that’s why I came to you for help. You will definitely be able to help me become a second ranked Alchemist."

"It’s not like there’s no way." Mo Sha said, "However, no matter what you do, you have to take it step by step. So your best course of action is to increase in practice. Quickly familiarise yourself with each and every single part of pill refinement. Practice makes perfect, and when your crucial moment comes, you will naturally become a second rank."

"Will that take a long time?" Sima You Yue asked.

"With your natural abilities and my teaching, it shouldn’t take that long." Mo Sha said.

"Okay, then I will go arrange everything before we start " Sima You Yue left right after she finished speaking.

She had initially thought to return to the academy tomorrow, however, her current circumstances required her to go into closed door cultivation. But if she continued to remain in the Spirit Pearl, would Sima Lie realise anything if he couldn’t feel her aura?

Thinking about it, it was still better for her to return to the academy. Inside the down, even if Fatty Qu and the others were there, they would not realise that she wasn’t inside the house.

After settling on this idea, she started to cultivate inside the house. She waited until the second day before she rushed to head to the academy.

Chun Jian and Yun Yue sighed when they saw Sima You Yue's empty room.

In the past, they would always be scolded and beaten by Sima You Yue, but now they could barely catch a glimpse of his shadow, leaving them with nothing to do everyday. This kind of change made them incomparably puzzled. However, they had already decided in their hearts that their current Young Master was good to them and gave them enough time and resources to cultivate. They definitely had to improve their strength so they would be able to protect him in the future.

This was still their practice period so they didn’t have classes to attend everyday. The students could live in the academy and they could cultivate within the dorms or head to the library to read.

When Sima You Yue arrived at the academy, Bei Gong Tang and Ouyang Fei had already gone out. She wasn’t surprised at all when she thought about how it was normally impossible to catch even a glimpse of the two of them. Fatty Qu had already returned to his clan and Wei Zi Qi was the only one left in the house leisurely reading a book.

"You Yue?" Hearing the sound of the main door opening, Wei Zi Qi looked up. Seeing Sima You Yue, he happily stood up.

"Zi Qi, how come you’re the only one here?" Sima You Yue asked as she walked over and sat down.

"Ouyang Fei and Bei Gong Tang left early in the morning, while Fatty Qu left for home yesterday and hasn’t returned." Wei Zi Qi said, "You Yue, where did you go when we were in Salt City? Why did you leave without a word?"

Sima You Yue touched her nose, saying, "At that time, here was something urgent I had to attend to, so I just got Third Brother to help me pass on the message. Have we submitted our mission yet?"

Wei Zi Qi nodded, "We went to submit it on the second day. I kept all the pill ingredients, so even though you weren’t here, the four of us had more than enough and it just happened to be enough to make up for your portion. As a result, we got full marks for our mission this time!"

"Really?" Sima You Yue was also happy when she heard that they scored full marks for their mission, "Thank you guys so much!"

"What’s there to thank." Wei Zi Qi said, "If you didn’t give us the opportunity to learn how to work together, it would not have been possible for us to obtain the carcasses of so many Spirit Beasts. How long will you be staying here this time?"

"I plan to stay here for a period of time." Sima You Yue said, "I plan to spend the rest of my time in closed door cultivation, so I may not be out much."

"You want to go into closed door cultivation?" Wei Zi Qi looked at Sima You Yue with astonishment. People normally went into closed door cultivation when they wanted to breakthrough in rank. Could it be that she was once again close to making a breakthrough?

Could she not give people this kind of attack!

If he knew that Sima You Yue had already broken through in rank, it was possible that his little heart would not be able to take the impact and would suffer even more.

"Right, I’ll head back first to tidy up the house a bit.' Sima You Yue headed back into the house the moment she finished speaking.

Wei Zi Qi looked at Sima You Yue's retreating figure and thought about how she was so addicted to working hard, so what reason was there for him not to? He purposed in his heart that as long as he wasn’t spending his time in the library researching, he would be cultivating in his room.

Sima You Yue swept her place clean and then entered the Spirit Pearl to cultivate. Right now, she was already familiar with refining rank one pills, so when Bei Gong Tang and Ouyang Fei returned, she had already refined a few furnaces worth of pills.

When she knew that they had returned, Sima You Yue exited the Spirit Pearl and interacted with them for a bit before telling then that she was going into closed door cultivation and heading back into the Spirit Pearl.

"Let’s start the closed door cultivation now." Sima You Yue looked to Mo Sha as she said.

Mo Sha nodded, saying, "From now on, you will spend the mornings cultivating in the Spirit Pearl and the nights recovering your mental strength and Spiritual Qi. Although this Golden Snake Fruit tree is able to give off an aura that can nourish the soul, it needs to absorb moonlight. So, we will need to go outside at night."

Sima You Yue glanced at the Golden Snake Fruit tree and realised that it did not have the white mist lingering around it like it used to. She reckoned that the moonlight that strengthened the body had almost been completely consumed.

"You have already spent the day refining pills, so you should first rest tonight to recover your mental strength." Mo Sha said.

Mo Sha nodded. With a single thought, she brought the Golden Snake Fruit tree and Mo Sha with her as they left the Spirit Pearl.

It just happened that the moonlight was shining bright this night so she let Little Roar take away two pieces of the wall tiles, allowing the moonlight to shine inside.

The moment the moonlight shone on the Golden Snake Fruit tree, the leaves emitted a faint misty aura. Sima You Yue and Mo Sha crossed their legs and sat beside each other, using the Golden Snake Fruit tree to recover their Soul and Spirit.
