Mu Si’s eyes glowed .
“This barrier isn’t exactly difficult, but it’s not exactly easy either . If there’s a chance in the future, I can teach it to you . ” Sima You Yue said . “I think that your father should know it as well . He can also teach it to you when we find him . ”
Mu Si knew as well that Sima You Yue currently did not have time to teach him . If she had time in the future, he would sit down and learn well .
“When you went outside, how aws the situation? Can we leave the city?” Sima You Yue asked .
“We can’t . ” Mu Si said, “I heard that there’s something going on at the restricted area and the whole place has been sealed . Whether it’s the human or ghost clansmen, none are allowed to leave the city . Furthermore, the Zhang, Meng and Pang clansmen are searching everywhere . Whenever they bump into somebody, they interrogate him . That’s why there are very few people along the streets these days .
“Didn’t they catch you when you went outside?” Di Wu asked .
“They just caught me and looked me once over . However, the moment they saw that it was me, they let me go . ” Mu Si said .
“You’ve been bullied since young, so it’s natural that they would not believe that you would dare to kill Zhang Shuo and the others . ” Sima You Yue said, “Furthermore, they’ve already set their sights on people in the paragon rank and above . ”
“For someone who is able to kill a person half a step into the spirit paragon rank, from their perspective, will naturally be someone who is also half a step into the paragon rank and up . ” Sima You Yue said, “This is okay too, this will cut out quite a bit of our troubles .
“You’re saying that they will still look over to us?” Di Wu asked .
“Zhao Shuo chased after Mu Si when he left, then he was killed by someone . ” Sima You Yue said, “Whether or not he actually did it, they will send people to question him . ”
“That’s true . ” Di Wu nodded, “These guys just love to take their anger out on anybody . Once they can’t figure it out, they’ll beat on the little guys anyway . ”
“Alright, don’t scare him anymore . ” Sima You Yue said, “But, Mu Si, do you know what to say when those people come looking for you?”
“I already told them that I was chased into a little alleyway . Then, I bumped into you and you saved me . When we left, he was still well and fine . ” Mu Si said .
“Alright . ”
Anyway, it’s not like anyone saw what happened after . As to how that guy went to the forbidden area, how were any of them to know why?
“But, Young Mis, we have to think of a proper identity . Otherwise, if we remain cooped up in here, how will we ever go out!” Di Wu said .
“If those people ask, we’ll just say that we’re a small household in the northern side of the city . Then we just happened to be walking by when we saw them bullying Mu Sian so we casually lent a helping hand . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Just like that? Those people aren’t idiots . How could they believe us . The moment they send people to check, we’ll be doomed . ” Di Wu said .
“They have to bother with finding the murderer . How could they have the time to check out our background?” Sima You Yue said, “Furthermore, the north and south sides are like oil and water . Even if they wanted to check it out, it wouldn’t be easy . ”
“If someone else went to check it out, it might be a little smooth, but if it’s the Zhang Clan, it’s more likely that the moment one of them enters the northern area, they will be dragged down and beaten . ” Sima You Yue said with a smile .
“That’s true, isn’t the Zhang Clan managing the south side of things? The people on that side will definitely be keeping an eye on them . However, Young Miss, what if they manage to check it smoothly?” Di Wu said .
“Then we’re just unlucky . We’ll figure out a plan then . ” Sima You Yue said, “Right, have you eaten breakfast?”
“A little . ” Mu Si replied .
What he didn’t say was, after eating the dishes she had cooked yesterday, the buns he used to eat no longer had any flavour . Although he usually ate three big mantous, he only ate one today .
“Didn’t finish eating, I bet? I’ll cook some food for you . ” Sima You Yue said as she took out some cooking utensils . She cooked a bowl of porridge, made a few pancakes and then fried two more side dishes .
Although they often ate porridge and pancakes, the ones she made were just delicious .
Di Wu felt like he had some benefit being with Mu Si, this brat . At the very least, he could eat more of the dishes that Young Miss cooked . This was something that he never even had as a master .
However, why did Young Miss treat this brat so well? Especially when she saw the jade letter . The way she looked at him was no longer the same .
Just what was inside the jade letter? He was incredibly curious, but since Young Miss didn’t say, there was no use asking .
Sima You Yue watched Mu Si’s head and felt regret, a little heartache and a little pity for him .
She never expected that his father would have gone missing because he had gone to save her father . If Mu Lian Jie still lived well, she would help him find his father . If he was no longer on this earth, then she would have to spend her whole life trying to make things right with him .
Especially when she thought about how he had to live all alone ever since he was a young child all because of this, being bullied all these years, she felt like she had to properly make it up to him .
Mu Si could feel her gaze . He looked up and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing . ” Sima You Yue smiled, “How is it, does it taste good?”
“Yeah . ”
“You’re a young boy, it is especially at times like this when you are growing that you have to properly nourish your body . Eat more . ”
“Mm . ”
“Mu Si?” Yang Zi walked in from the outside . When he saw the delicious spread on the table and the picture of warmth, a sense of crisis arose in his heart .
“Uncle Yang Zi! You’re here!” Mu Si broke into a smile and waved at him, saying, “Si Yue cooked some dishes and they’re delicious! Do you want to try?”
Yang Zi glanced at the pots and bowls by the side, recognising with a single glance that those were spirit tools, and his guard against Sima You Yue increased again .
“They do smell good . However, I no longer eat these kinds of things . You can go ahead . ”
As he spoke, he walked over and realised that all the dishes that You Yue had made for Mu Si were all made using spirit ingredients . Even things like a bowl of rice . He could sense the dense spirit energy wafting from it .
These things were much more useful than the few low ranked crystal stones that he had sent before!
“You are called Si Yue?” Yang Zi looked at Sima You Yue .
“Indeed . ” Sima You Yue replied lightly .
“Uncle Yang Zi, what are you doing here? Did something happen outside?” Mu Si asked .
“You could say that the outside is already extremely messy . ” Yang Zi said, “The Zhang, Meng and Pang clan are just going around capturing and interrogating people . How can you still…”
He didn’t finish his sentence, but his meaning was clearly asking why he still let these people stay in the home .
“Uncle Yang Zi, You Yue is not a suspicious person . They are the Si Clan from the north part of the city . ” Yang Zi siad, “Su Tye said that they’ve never come to the Southern side of the city before, so they came this time to play . Now that things are so chaotic, they would definitely be unable to find a place to stay . They rescued me yesterday, and it’s rare that they not disdain our lack, so how could I just let them walk away like that?”
“But the northern and southern parts have never gotten along . If the Zhang Clan was to find out about it, they would cause trouble . ” Yang Zi said, “Aiya, look . The Zhang clansmen have come!”
Everyone raised their heads and looked up, and happened to see a group of people walking in from the outside .
