Chapter 1443: Can Great Grandfather be called so casually?

After taking the teleportation array and changing to another one, they finally arrived in Chord City. Just as they stepped out of the Spirit Seeker Guild, they saw Sima Zhi Yuan and his entourage waiting outside.

Sima You Yue and the few of them didn’t expect that they would come here to personally pick them up and they couldn’t react for a while.

“Hahaha, you are finally here!” Sima Zhi Yuan laughed heartily when he saw Sima You Yue and immediately walked over and hugged her.

Where was his usual majesty?

When the Sima clansmen who stood behind him saw how their Patriarch greeted Sima You Yue, they were stunned. It was their first time meeting with Sima You Yue and while they stood there in a daze, Sima Xiu Qi and the others slowly came back to their senses.

“Patriarch.” They saluted him.

But he ignored them and continued hugging Sima You Yue and chortled: “My child, you are finally here… if you were coming any later, I would have gone to find you!”

Sima You Yue was hugged by him so tight that she couldn’t breathe, and patted him on the shoulder, “Great Grandfather, you’re hugging me so tight that I can’t breathe.”

Sima Zhi Yuan finally released her, “Ha ha, I was too excited.”

Sima You Yue ran away from the devil’s claws, took a step back and patted her chest frantically, looking as if she had survived a disaster.

Sima Liu Xuan saw that Sima Zhi Yuan was so excited, he bowed to him and respectfully called out, “Patriarch.”

Sima Zhi Yuan’s attention shifted from Sima You Yue to him at once. Seeing his silver hair, he felt a little sad. He patted his shoulder and said, “It’s good that you are back.”

Sima Liu Xuan felt the power emitted from his shoulders, and he felt a flurry of mixed emotions as he replied simply: “Yeah.”

“Patriarch, why are you here?” Huang Ying Ying asked.

“Yes, Great Grandfather, why are you here?” Sima You Yue was also a little curious.

Even if Sima Zhi Yuan wanted to see her, he wouldn’t have come here with so many people.

So, there must be a reason.

“Presumptuous! How can you call the Patriarch Great Grandfather without following the rules?!” An old man behind shouted loudly and berated her.

Sima You Yue was scolded for no reason as her expression sank, and she felt very upset.

No one in the family had scolded her like that before! Moreover, it was a person whom she didn’t even know and dared to scold herself out like that in public. Hmph! She didn’t come back to be a punching bag for others!

However, before she could speak, Huang Ying Ying yelled first and pointed to the old man’s nose and cursed out aloud: “Sima Tuo, what are you barking for?!”

Sima You Yue’s heart jolted.

Sima Tu? Wasn’t that the person whom Grandfather mentioned before, the one that was very disagreeable with Grandfather?

He was also the biggest suspect who wanted to persecute her several times in the family.

Thinking of this, she narrowed her eyes and looked at him carefully.

Although her Grandfather and him were just cousins, they look quite alike. However, her Grandfather looked indifferent and upright while he looked a little sinister.

However, she didn’t know if it’s because of the inkling in her heart that gave such judgement.

“Huang Ying Ying, the good granddaughter you taught is so rebellious, she dared to call the Patriarch of the family Great Grandfather!” Sima Tu was not frightened by Huang Ying Ying one bit and continued to accuse Sima You Yue.

“You…” Huang Ying Ying wanted to continue scolding him but she felt a small hand hold her arm.

“This Grandfather, you look very old and should have some brains. How can you say something that shows such IQ?” Sima You Yue smiled.

Although she was smiling, everyone could tell that she was in fact cursing.

“What audacity!” The younger people around Sima Tu cried out.

“Why, am I wrong?” Sima You Yue’s expression sank suddenly, “I am not from your Sima family, why should I follow your family’s rules? To put it bluntly, I was invited by Great Grandfather. So, I should count as your guest, who are you to speak like that!”


Sima Tu saw red and wanted to scold when Sima Zhi Yuan saw Sima You Yue’s reaction, he bellowed at him: “You shut up! You Yue is right, go stand at one side!”

“Patriarch…” Sima Tu looked at Sima Zhi Yuan in disbelief.

Although he was usually temperamental and scolded them rather frequently but he never scolded them because of the younger generation.

He said that what she said was right, was he referring to the part where she said ‘who are you to speak like that?’

“Great Grandfather, it seems that they are very dissatisfied with this title. In that case, I will call you ‘Sima Patriarch’ from now on.” Sima You Yue looked at Sima Zhi Yuan aggrievedly.

Even though Sima Zhi Yuan knew that she was acting so aggrieved on purpose, he still felt distressed and scolded Sima Tu: “Scram back for me, I shouldn’t have brought you along!”


The rest of the clasmen looked at him baffled, why was the Patriarch so angry? Even if she was a talented person from the younger generation, there was no need for him to act in such a manner to an elder of the family just because of a few words from her, right?

“Hmph, I finally got her to agree to call me Great Grandfather, whoever continues to spout nonsense can jolly well scram back to the clan!” Sima Zhi Yuan said not only to Sima Tu but also to the other members of the family.

Everyone looked at each other in a daze before they all squeezed out a ‘yes’.

Sima Zhi Yuan turned back to Sima You Yue and immediately smiled again in an amiable manner.

“You Yue, it’s all right, I’ve scolded them already! Don’t be angry, hmm?”

The corners of everyone’s mouths twitched, with such a face that was full of flattery, was it really the same person as the one who just bellowed angrily at everyone just now?

“Great Grandfather, you are the best!” Sima You Yue went up and took Sima Zhi Yuan’s arm and said with a grin.

Others thought that Sima Zhi Yuan would throw her hand away. Never before had a younger generation act so capriciously, this little Young Lady was simply too bold!

But the expected situation did not occur, instead, Sima Zhi Yuan was even happier.

“Great Grandfather, why did you come here?” Sima You Yue asked again.

“I want to see you sooner, so I came here.” Sima Zhi Yuan said and winked at her.

The real reason can’t be said?

Sima You Yue understood immediately, since he can’t say it, then they’ll talk when they went back.

“Does Great Grandfather miss me and my Father and Grandparents? If you had said so earlier, I would have come back sooner.” She smiled, “Oh yes, Great Grandfather, this is my apprentice, Mu Si.”

“This is Mu Si! Not bad, not bad!” Sima Zhi Yuan said, “Where are your Grandfather and brothers?”

“They stayed in the valley.” Sima You Yue said.

“The inner region is indeed more dangerous than the outside. It is really better to stay outside and take care of it in the valley.” Sima Zhi Yuan said.

“I think so too.” Sima You Yue replied.

Actually, her Grandfather as well as Fatty Qu and the others have expressed their willingness to follow her here. If she felt that they were a burden, they could always stay in the Spirit Pagoda and cultivate and wait until they were stronger before they came out.

However, she refused this time because she didn’t know what she would encounter when she reached the inner region. If they stayed in Heartbreak Valley, it was safe and stable. And because Paramount Valley was there, they would be able to gain access to news.

Sima Zhi Yuan took them back to their residence and Sima Liu Xuan finally asked, “Patriarch, did something happen in Chord City?”
