Chapter 1308: The truth and insincerity
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
“Who are you guys? What are you doing in Mu Si’s house?!” He clenched with one hand, If Mu Si replied that they were bad people, then he would attack immediately .
“We’re Mu Si’s saviours . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Saviours?” Yang Zi turned around and looked at Mu Si . He put down his guard after seeing him nod . He cupped his fist towards both of them and said gratefully, “Please forgive me for being offensive just now . ”
Sima You Yue nodded slightly in acknowledgement .
“Mu Si, are your wounds caused by those people again?” Yang Zi asked .
Yang Zi didn’t care about his manners as he turned around and questioned Mu Si, “I heard you were caught by them again, they saw them chasing you and found him dead not long after . Mu Si, tell Uncle the truth, is his death related to you?”
Just when Mu Si wanted to confess, Sima You Yue spoke .
“Mu Si’s strength is so low, do you think he could have killed them all when Zhang Shuo brought ten to twenty men?”
Mu Si looked at her astonishingly, He didn’t expect her to say that, but he played along and said, “They had a lot of people with them . ”
He didn’t deny it, but he didn’t admit it either .
Yang Zi gave a thought to what Sima You Yue meant . He also felt that it wouldn’t be Mu Si’s doing, he then moved his focus to them and asked, “Did you save him from Zhang Shuo and kill them since you know it so clearly?”
Sima You Yue shrugged her shoulders, “I did kill a few guards, but I didn’t kill Zhang Shuo . ”
“Ask Mu Si if you don’t believe me . ”
“Uncle Yang Zi, they didn’t kill Zhang Shuo . ” Mu Si said .
Yang Zi stared at Mu Si to make sure what he said was the truth, then he patted him on the shoulder and said, “I’m worried about you, Zhang’s clan forces are too strong, you’ll be in deep trouble if they know you killed Zhang Shuo . ”
“Mm, I understand . ” Mu Si nodded, “But they didn’t kill Zhang Shuo . ”
I killed him . He said it in his heart .
“Mm, it’s good that you aren’t involved in this . ” Yang Zi sighed in relief, “That thing might be leaked if you’re caught by them . Then you won’t be able to look for your Father . Did you manage to find that thing?”
Mu Si shook his head and said, “Uncle Yang Zi, I can’t find it . Either that thing doesn’t exist or it’s been taken away by Father . ”
“Try looking for it again . Your Father will definitely leave a backup at home when he leaves so others can look for him in case anything happens to him . ” Yang Zi said assuredly .
“But Father has never told me about this, and,” Mu Si looked around his surroundings and said, “The whole house can be seen in one glance, if there’s anything, I would have found it long ago . ”
“You might have overlooked it somewhere . ” Yang Zi continued, “This is the key to finding your Father, we won’t be able to locate your Father if we can’t find that place . Do you understand?”
“I understand . ” Mu Si lowered his head in disappointment .
He wouldn’t be able to locate his Father if he couldn’t find that thing . He searched through everywhere in the house but still couldn’t find that thing, one could imagine how he felt .
Yang Zi said as he saw him feeling down, “Try looking for it again, don’t go onto the street for this period of time to avoid them venting their anger on you . ”
“This is your expenses for now, your Father is a hero, don’t stop cultivating . ” Yang Zi passed him a bag .
Mu Si took the bag and looked at him gratefully, “I’ll try my best, thank you Uncle Yang Zi . ”
“Oh right, although they’re your saviors, you don’t know who they are . You better be careful to prevent any trouble . ”
“Uncle Yang Zi, I’ll take note of it . ”
“Alright, I’ll take my leave . I’ll notify you if there’s any news . ”
Yang Zi turned and left after he spoke, Mu Si sent him off and came back quickly .
He sat on the mat and opened up the bag to see what was inside . Sima You Yue took a glance, there were only a few pieces of low graded dark spirit stones apart from the other two middle grade ones .
Sima You Yue placed her hand below her chin while looking at him and asked, “Who is that Uncle Yang Zi?”
Mu Si kept the spirit stones, he wasn’t worried at all knowing Sima You Yue wasn’t any ordinary individual, she definitely wouldn’t even want these little spirit stones .
“Uncle Yang Zi is a good friend of my Father . He has been taking care and helping me these past few years, if not, I would not have been able to live this long . ”
“But you lied to him just now . ” Sima You Yue continued, “If you trust him, why didn’t you tell him the truth?”
Mu Si lowered his head and grasped the bag tightly in his hands without saying anything .
Although he only knew her for half a day, he trusted her ineffably?
Sima You Yue sighed and said, “Little kid, I asked you three questions but you only answered one, it’s tiring to talk to you . ”
“Who are you?” Mu Si suddenly lifted his head and looked at her, with tears in his eyes, “You’re always asking me questions but you never told me who you are . ”
Why was a mere stranger so concerned about him?!
Although he was still young, his sharp intuition from his past experience helped him to see who was true to him and who was fake .
Sima You Yue didn’t expect the stubborn him would suddenly become like that, she blanked, smiled and said, “I’m Sima You Yue, just like you, I’m also looking for my Father . ”
“Your Father is missing too?”
“That’s right . ” Sima You Yue changed her pose, she hugged her knees with both arms, rested her head on her knees and said, “Come to think of it, we’re both in the same situation . You lost your Father at eight, for me, I was sent to another place right after I was born, I’ve never seen my Father before, I don’t know how he looked like, I don’t know if he misses me like how I do . For now, I know that he’s not living well, so I need to find him as soon as possible . ”
“Your Father is in Ghost City?” Mu Si asked .
“Mm . I came here to look for my Father . ” Sima You Yue took out Sima Liu Xuan’s life jade . The top graded jade was filled with cracks, one could imagine how it’s owner would be now .
Maybe because they empathized with one another, both of them got closer .
Sima You Yue sighed and said, “Do you know, your Uncle Yang Zi isn’t as simple as you thought . ”
Mu Si grasped tightly on the bag and said, “I know . He didn’t take care of me because of my Father, there are other reasons . ”
“But I can see that you’re excited upon hearing his voice . You even ran out excitedly . Don’t you care?” Sima You Yue asked .
“He can feel it from the outside . ”
Sima You Yue was flabbergasted, did he act close on purpose?
