Chapter 1444: Just so that you won’t be able to compete

Sima Zhi Yuan looked at Sima Liu Xuan.

“On our way back, although there were quite a number of people on the streets, however, if you look closely, you will notice that most of them are in groups.” Sima Liu Xuan said, “Moreover, there isn’t the usual hustle and bustle on the street of excitement due to the upcoming convention, but a more subtle depressed atmosphere instead. Everyone is behaving cautiously… So, Patriarch, what happened?”

Moreover, Sima Zhi Yuan had actually brought people to pick them up, not so much as picking them up, it was more like protecting them.

Sima Zhi Yuan looked at Sima Liu Xuan, he had always been prudent and wise since he was a child. He was able to discover this abnormality just after stepping out from the Spirit Seeker Guild.

“You guessed it, something happened in Chord City. However, this is not the time to talk about this.” Sima Zhi Yuan looked at Sima You Yue, “Child, we have some injured. Can you help me heal them?”

“Are they seriously injured?” Sima You Yue was a little surprised and asked.

“Yes, the family physicians and alchemists are helpless. Fortunately, you came back this time, otherwise I would have sent someone to find you.” Sima Zhi Yuan said.

He actually wanted to send someone to find her? They were that seriously injured?

“Let’s go see them first then.” Sima You Yue said.


When Sima You Yue saw the patients, she realized why the Sima Family was so anxious, because all the patients that were lying in bed unconscious were all women.

In addition to the two whom she recognised, Sima Yi Yun and Sima Qi Qi, there were more than a dozen women that lay there.

“They were all supposed to participate in this competition.” Sima Zhi Yuan explained.

No wonder…

Sima You Yue had an inkling and said, “I will check them first.”

“Go on now.” Sima Zhi Yuan urged.

Sima You Yue checked them all, everyone’s condition was not very serious, but it was very troublesome.

“You Yue, how is it?” Huang Ying Ying asked with some worry when she saw Sima You Yue frown.

It was the first time Huang Ying Ying saw her so worried apart from her Father, and she guessed that there should be someone she cared about among these unconscious ladies.

“Grandmother, their lives are not in danger,” Sima You Yue said.

“That’s good.” Huang Ying Ying patted her chest in relief.

“When will they wake up? Can they participate in the competition?” Sima Tu asked.

His voice was very anxious, he seemed to be very concerned about whether they could participate in the competition but not at all about their wellbeing.

“They are definitely able to regain consciousness but I’m afraid that they can’t participate in the competition.” Sima You Yue said.


“Why are they unconscious?” Sima Zhi Yuan asked.

“They have been poisoned.” Sima You Yue said, “Although they can regain consciousness, it will take a month to completely remove the poison.”

The Chord City Competition started in less than half a month’s time and it will take a month to recover, so they would definitely not be able to participate in the competition.

“Poisoned? How could it be possible!” A person that stood behind Sima Tu shouted out incredulously and his tone was filled with disbelief.

“How can it be impossible?” Sima You Yue glanced at the man with the handlebar moustache [1].

People who had a bad attitude towards her would face her similar attitude.

“If they had been poisoned, how could I not see it! You, a mere lass, how can you tell!” He cried out with indignation.

“That’s because you are not that skilled.” Sima You Yue countered, “If you are really good, how can you not find out that it is poison?”

“It’s not only me who did not discover any poison, none of the poison masters I’ve consulted with also discover any! Hmph, How can you, a mere lass be better than a dozen prestigious poison masters?” He sneered.

“Can you treat them? Or are you just speaking some nonsense?!” Someone else chided in.

“That’s right, Patriarch, how can a mere lass be better than those people? Even those doctors didn’t say that they had been poisoned.”

Sima Zhi Yuan frowned and glared at those people causing a ruckus and roared, “All of you just shut up!”

Those people immediately kept quiet. Although they stopped talking, the eyes that looked at Sima You Yue were still full of mockery.

“You Yue, does it really take a month?” Sima Zhi Yuan asked.

Sima You Yue saw that Sima Zhi Yuan’s expression was solemn and she continued, “I think the other party just didn’t want them to participate in the competition, so they used this kind of poison. It won’t be fatal, but the detoxification process is slow. Great Grandfather, are you very concerned about this competition?”

“It’s not this competition but the prize of this competition – the ten thousand year old Profound Moon Fruit.” Sima Liu Feng’s voice came from outside, before both Sima Liu Yun and himself walked in.

“Profound Moon Fruit?”

“That’s right!”

“If you win this competition, the family will get the Profound Moon Fruit and Laughing Buddha Fruit…” Sima Liu Feng saw that Sima You Yue’s gaze became sharper, and swallowed the rest of the words back, “Why are you glaring at me so fiercely?”

“I remember, when you asked me to get the Laughing Buddha Fruit then, you said that my Father was kicked out of the family…” Sima You Yue stared at him, her eyes revealing a dangerous glint.

“Hmph! Your Father has indeed been kicked out of the family!” Sima Tu said, “Your Father is no longer on the genealogy!”

Sima You Yue looked back at Sima Liu Xuan, with doubts in her eyes.

Didn’t Father leave by himself? After leaving, didn’t her Grandparents still send people to search for him? If he had been expelled from the family, would the family allow it?

Sima Liu Xuan nodded to her and said, “I am indeed no longer on the genealogy.”

What happened then was to show that he had been punished. Although he was removed from the genealogy, the Patriarch and some people still regarded him as a member of the Sima family.

But, for some others, he had been kicked out of the family.

“It turns out that Father is no longer on the genealogy!” Sima You Yue said in deliberation, “If that’s the case, then what are we back for?”

She got up, looked at those people, and said, “Then as for these people, there’s no need for me to heal them anymore.”

“If you don’t want to, then don’t go back.” Sima Liu Xuan said lightly, and had no opinion on whether to return or not.

“Oh, You Yue, don’t be angry. How can you take what these bastards say so seriously?!” Sima Zhi Yuan coaxed, “Great Grandfather, has been waiting for you to come back every night, how can you bear to let me, this old man to be heartbroken and disappointed?”

The people present all twitched their mouths, Patriarch, you are too partial!

Sima Tu and others were even more livid, because of this mere lass, they had been scolded many times today!

“No! These people already said that we were kicked out! I don’t want to go back! Don’t go back, Father! Hmph, unless you drive them out, we won’t go back!” Sima You Yue said it in a wayward manner, anyway, to these people, she was just a little lass in their eyes and it was normal for a young lady to be temperamental and wilful.

Since they could not reconcile, let them be disgusted first.

Unexpectedly, Sima Zhi Yuan immediately replied: “Alright, alright! As long as you come back, you can do anything!”

Patriarch, is this how you coax the younger generation?!
