Chapter 1438: Taking the Initiative to express goodwill

When Sima You Yue saw Lang Zhong beaming at her, her expression darkened immediately.

He was really able to seize every opportunity!

Not to mention, he also brought along three women. The way they looked at her were piercing, as if they wanted to poke a few holes in her body.

Sima You Yue walked over, put things on the table aside, and said, “Father, let’s sit here.”

Sima Liu Xuan smiled, nodded apologetically before he stood up and went to Sima You Yue’s side.

“Father, this looks pretty good, so I got you a little bit more.” Sima You Yue said.

“Mm, alright.”

“Father, this spirit fruit looks like it should be a top grade spirit fruit. It would be good to eat a little after your meal.”

“Mm, alright.”

“Father, let’s go to the deck for a while after our meal.”

“Mm, alright.”

Sima You Yue and Sima Liu Xuan were eating and chatting and had totally ignored all who were looking at them.

However, the person who was seated at the side didn’t seem to be keen on being just a simple bystander and shamelessly butted into their conversation.

“Go to the deck? I’m going to the deck later, let’s go together.”

Sima You Yue rolled her eyes and ignored him.

Lang Zhong came over consciously, leaned close to Sima You Yue, and said, “I know where you can see the outside!”

Sima You Yue was swayed for a moment as she turned her head and asked: “Really?”

“Of course, when have I ever lied to you?” Lang Zhong replied with a smile.

“Alright, then you can come along.” Sima You Yue agreed.

The three ladies who were eating a few spirit fruits by the side straightened their backs as soon as they heard them and both looked towards Li Yao at once.

Li Yao understood their hidden intention and after eating two spirit fruits, she got up and went to Sima You Yue’s dining table to sit down.

“Hello, is your name You Yue? I’m really sorry, when we were on the deck before, we shouldn’t have laughed at you.” Li Yao looked at her apologetically, “Will you forgive us?”

Sima You Yue looked at her. Although she tried to make herself look sincere, she still caught the disdain in her eyes.

However, she had just arrived at the inner region not too long ago and she did not want to make enemies directly with others so easily.

“It wasn’t that big a deal.” She responded lightly, not too enthusiastic.

“So that means… you forgive us?” Li Yao smiled and said, “My name is Li Yao, I’m from the Li Family of the Fiftieth State. What about you? I heard City Lord Lang address you as You Yue?”

“Sima You Yue.” Sima You Yue responded briefly, but didn’t elaborate on her background.

Li Yao sneered in her heart. Hmph, knowing that she was from the Sixty Forth State, it was really embarrassing to say it in front of her.

But even if you don’t tell me, I know your background! Hmph! Putting on such a pretentious front.

“It turned out to be the Sima family’s Young Miss.” Li Yao said, “This is Young Miss Yang, Yang Xi, from the Yang family in the Sixteenth state, and Young Miss Fang, Fang Qi, a lady from the Fang family from the same state as myself.”

Sima You Yue glanced over and saw them smiling at her and she just casually smiled back.

Yang Xi came over, sat at the table with them, and smiled while saying in an amiable tone, “Young Miss Sima, since we met on the spatial ship, it can be considered as fate.”

“Yes, fate!” Sima You Yue said pointedly.

“I don’t know where is Young Miss Sima headed to?” Yang Xi asked.

“The Sixty Forth State.”

“Sixty Forth State? Such a coincidence, so are we! It seems we are going to get off at the same place.” Yang Xi said.

“Oh? Are you not from the Sixteenth State?”

“There is a convention in the Sixty Forth State. We received an invitation, so we have to go there before we head back.” Yang Xi said.


Sima You Yue’s reaction was dull, and didn’t have the curiosity that she had anticipated, so she suddenly didn’t know how to continue the conversation.

Fortunately, Li Yao, who was on the side, relieved her.

“Young Miss Sima, aren’t you from the Sixty Forth State? You should know about this convention, I heard that it is an Alchemist Competition for women!” Li Yao said.

“An Alchemist Competition for women?” There was actually an alchemy competition specially prepared for women?

She was a little surprised, she had never heard of it before.

“Oh, don’t you know about it?” The surprise on Li Yao’s face this time was genuine. A person whose family clan was from the Sixty Forth State actually didn’t know about this competition.

Sima You Yue shook her head and said, “I haven’t been back for many years. I have just returned and haven’t been back yet! Why are they holding an alchemy competition specially for women?”

“Actually, it isn’t.” Yang Xi said.

“It isn’t?”

“Mm hmm.”

“But didn’t you just say that it was an Alchemist Competition for women?” Sima You Yue was confused by them.

“That’s only part of the convention.” Li Yao said, “This convention is actually a women’s gathering, but there will be various events held such as alchemy and other competitions.”


“It was said that it used to be for everyone to learn from each other during gatherings, but now it has become a match between women. It has completely deviated from the original intention.” Li Yao explained.

“So that’s it.” Sima You Yue finally understood.

“Young Miss Sima, may I enquire, what is your forte?” Fang Qi asked.

“Oh, just a little bit of everything,” Sima You Yue said.

“It seems that Young Miss Sima’s involvement is really extensive.” Li Yao praised, but she was saying the opposite in her heart.


The three of them laughed in their hearts, thinking that she was just talking big, just like she was talking about building a spatial ship by herself.

“So, it seems that Young Miss Sima will be participating in these competitions?”

“It depends on the situation.” Sima You Yue did not promise anything. If she found it interesting then, maybe she could pop by and have a look.

“You Yue, I don’t care whether or not you are competing in any competitions, I will be by your side.” Lang Zhong said, “Anyway, wherever you go, I will go.”

Sima You Yue saw that the expressions of the trio suddenly change, as if the disguise was about to crumble any moment. If she refused this time round, another set of drama may unfold.

“Alright, do whatever you want. As long as you don’t disturb my life.”

During their conversation, Sima Liu Xuan had finished eating all that she had brought him and Lang Zhong immediately invited them to have a look at the scenery outside.

“City Lord Lang, we are also curious on how it looks outside, can you bring us along with you?” Yang Xi looked at him with her wide sparkly eyes filled with affection. If Sima You Yue were to describe it, ‘Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

Such a woman really had the qualifications to be the seed of disaster!

However, Lang Zhong was not affected by her at all, and he refused directly: “That place is too small to accommodate so many people. You Yue, Uncle Sima, let’s go.”

The corners of Sima You Yue and Sima Liu Xuan’s mouths twitched when they heard him.

Uncle Sima? Sima Liu Xuan was not necessarily older than him, right? According to Sima You Yue’s guess, he should at least be a pretty old guy as well!

He shamelessly called out ‘Uncle Sima’, how did he do it?!
