“In the past three years that you weren’t here, we’ve been slowly tightening the noose around their necks and it’s just a matter of time to tug it.” Ximen Feng said, “Well, it’s been a tight year for them and they are about to go bankrupt.”
“You’ve worked hard.” Sima You Yue didn’t expect that they could manage things so well in such a short time, which shows how much hard work they had put in these days. No wonder, as cultivators, they all still looked haggard.
“Boss, it will be fine as long as you’re back. We were worried that you would not be back in time before the final battle!” said Ni An Yi.
“Actually, I only stayed in the Ghost City for three to four months. It’s just that the time flow is different.” Sima You Yue said.
“Boss, tell us what the Ghost City looks like, and we can go to play in the future.” Dai Yi said with a grin.
“Forget about playing, if you go, you might not be able to come back.” Sima You Yue said.
“For real? Is everyone in there so powerful?”
“It’s not a matter about strength but I killed their City Lord and a steward. If you go, you may be targeted for revenge.”
“What? You killed their City Lord? Why? Was it because he forced you to be his wife?”
“The City Lord is a woman.” Sima You Yue said, “However, she wanted to grab my father and she was the very person who forced him to become what he is now. Hmph! Killing her directly is already considered a bargain for her!”
Thinking of her father’s current appearance, her tone turned chilly.
No one expected that such a thing would happen.
Sima You Yue then talked about Sima Liu Xuan and the Ghost City again, and everyone present became full of respect for Sima Liu Xuan.
“Elder Sister, you don’t have to worry about matters in the valley, just concentrate on treating your father. We will let you know when the final battle is approaching,” Ximen Feng said.
“Yes, Boss, you just need to participate in the final battle and watch with your very own eyes to see how they are eliminated.”
Although they didn’t know that Sima You Yue was Ximen You Yue, they also understood her hatred of these two forces. Everything can be left to them, but she will definitely need to participate in the final battle, otherwise she will regret it for a lifetime.
“Alright then, I’ll leave it to you guys.” Sima You Yue did not reject their proposal as it was indeed more important to heal her father at present. “But there’s no need to work too hard, this matter isn’t something that can be accomplished in a day or two.”
“We understand. Just wait for our good news!”
“If there’s anything you need, just tell me, I will definitely do everything I can.” Sima You Yue said.
“Don’t worry, we will tell you if we need anything.” Ximen Feng said.
They all knew her ability and if they really needed anything, they would definitely look for her.
They then talked about the valley’s situation again. Although she had more of a hands off approach, there were still some things that she should know.
They stayed for a day and left early the next morning. Now was the critical time, they could not afford to be absent for too long.
Sima Liu Xuan woke up after sleeping an entire day. With Sima You Yue’s treatment, he recovered much faster than just taking pills on their own and very soon, he could lift his hands and feet.
Even though he was a person who had always been relatively calm, with silver needles all over his body and being bare-chested in front of his own daughter, made him a little shy.
Seeing the faint blush on his face, she smiled in her heart. She didn’t expect her father to be so shy and easily embarrassed.
After removing all the needles, she covered him with a quilt before picking up the bowl of porridge that Huang Ying Ying had just brought in. She sat by the side of the bed and scooped up a spoonful of porridge.
“Am I… not able to recover from my injury?” Sima Liu Xuan asked.
Sima You Yue was startled, he was the one who knew best about his own body’s condition.
“Father, do you know how fortunate I feel?” She did not answer him but asked him another question instead.
“I feel that I was very fortunate to be able to rush to Ghost City in time. I feel very fortunate that you are still alive and that I can see you again. I finally know how my father looks like after thinking about it for decades. Although my Grandfather treated me very well, but I always can’t help thinking, what do my parents look like? If they are by my side, will they love me like other parents love their children? Will they spoil me? When I make a mistake, will they teach me strictly although their hearts are hurting? So, Father is still alive. For me, my happiness is half of it. When I find my mother, I will be satisfied.” Sima You Yue raised a happy smile on her face.
“You’ve worked hard all these years, my child.” Sima Liu Xuan said in a despondent tone filled with guilt.
Although it was also due to the circumstances at the time, he still felt sorry towards her for not being able to grow up by her side.
From her words, he already attained the answer he wanted. If he really couldn’t get better, then he would spend the rest of his life with her, love her and watch her grow.
“Father, no matter what you look like, you are my Father.” Sima You Yue freed a hand to hold his hand, “And you have to believe me, your daughter’s medical skills are very powerful, and I will definitely heal you!”
“This smug look of yours really resembles your mother!” Sima Liu Xuan said with a smile, “Well, I won’t ask anymore, I will trust you with all my heart. No matter whether or not I can be cured, I will stay with you by your side.”
“With Father by my side, I’ll be a happy child.” Sima You Yue said, “Come on, I will feed you porridge.”
Sima Liu Xuan doesn’t like to eat soft food very much, but since his daughter was the person feeding it, it was entirely a different matter.
“Father, you don’t have spiritual power in your body now, so you have to eat. On top of that, you’re injured, so you can only eat soft food.” Sima You Yue explained while feeding, “Grandmother said that you don’t like to eat soft food, but now there is no choice. I made this porridge myself and let Grandmother watch the time to bring it in. So, you must finish this bowl.”
His daughter’s request, whatever it is, it must be satisfied!
In fact, Sima You Yue did not let him eat too much and fed him only a small bowl. After eating, she chatted with him for a while, most of which she was talking and he was listening.
She told him her previous experience and all the things she had heard.
Hearing about her, Sima Liu Xuan was very emotional. His dear daughter had suffered so much in order to become stronger. Although she selected to tell him only the good things, he understood that no matter who it was, it would take a lot of hard work and hardship to grow into someone who could make the whole continent tremble in such a short time.
He was proud of her and felt sorry for her at the same time.
“By the way, Father, the seal in my body was sealed by my Grandfather?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Yes, it was”
“Uncle Liufeng mentioned that both of you were emptied of spiritual power after I was born, What happened?”
