Chapter 1459: Not just anyone

Yin Lang watched as He Zhen Zhang left and he patted Sima You Yue’s shoulder, indicating to her to leave with him.

Sima You Yue didn’t know what he wanted to do as she notified Sima Zhi Yuan and the others and left with him.

“Where are we going?” She asked only when they had left the arena.

“Just come with me.”

Yin Lang didn’t say much either as he took out a name plate and flashed it to the guard in front.

The guard wanted to ask them to state their business, but when he saw the name plate, he immediately turned respectful and asked, “May I ask if there is anything I can do for you?”

“Take me to your Patriarch.” Yin Lang said.

Sima You Yue was rather puzzled. At this point, he wanted to ask to see the He Clan’s Patriarch. They wouldn’t agree, right?

However, she didn’t think that the guard wouldn’t ask a single thing. Instead, he said directly, “Follow me.”

Then, they led them down a street and walked past another one before the outside clamor was shut away.

Sima You Yue pulled on Yin Lang’s sleeve and waited for him to turn around before asking “You and He Zhen… Patriarch He don’t have just a simple relationship, do you?”

If it was just the average person, how could he have that kind of name plate?

Yin Lang smiled at her, “Don’t bother yourself about these details.”

“Hmph, are you keeping something from me to trick me?” Sima You Yue asked.

“No way, for something like this, would you fall for it just because I tricked you? I’m speaking the truth.” Yin Lang said.

“I don’t believe you.”

“Really. I really have no clue what to do about her illness. Susu really wants that Profound Moon Fruit as well. I am also genuine in coming to you for help.”

“Hmph, I got it. You actually already know that the others won’t be able to treat Madame He, so you thought of looking for me so that I can be the hope when all is lost. Who knows, I might even guess it right. After all, I was even able to suppress the Hundred Days of Sleep, right?” Sima You Yue glared at him.

Yin Lang coughed twice. He remained silent, which was a tacit form of agreement.

“Then why did you want to hide the relationship between you and Patriarch He? I wouldn’t raise the price just because of this!” She was rather unhappy. It was not a nice feeling to be kept in the dark.

“What I said was the truth. It was just that the Patriarch He is rather honest and upright. Although we met only a few times, I promised that I would help him think of a solution. That is why he gave me that name jade. It was so that I could look for him directly once I thought of an idea.” Yin Lang explained, “There are some people where you can be good friends even if you meet once or twice, while others remain at a distance even if you’ve lived your whole lives together.”

Sima You Yue agreed with this. After thinking about it, she decided not to harp on it anymore.

The guard was secretly puzzled when he heard their discourse.

He naturally saw that Sima You Yue was a young lady and even thought that she was a waiting girl for Yin Lang. who would have thought that she was a person that he had brought to treat the madame!

These guards followed the Patriarch and knew a thing or two about Yin Lang. If it was someone even he had to act humble under, she must definitely have some ability!

When he thought about this, he also started to think highly of Sima You Yue.

He led them to a courtyard, and when they entered, they saw a few ladies being led in by the guards.

“These are the contestants of the competition!” Sima You Yue wasn’t surprised when she saw those ladies.

“Patriarch said to let them give it a shot.” The guard said.

“Just these people? It will be difficult.” Yin Lang shook his head, “Ol’ He must really be at his wit’s end!”

He Zhang Zhen just entered the place when he saw that Yin Lang was around as well. He was rather surprised.

“I just saw you at the observatory just now, what are you doing here already!”

“I saw you bring a few people in here, so I guessed that you wanted to let them try. That’s why I came to take a look.” Yin Lang didn’t act sloppily like he always did, and his eyes shone with rare seriousness.

“Mm. I wanted to let them try.” He Zhan Zheng said to the girls after he spoke, “You are one of the first few to have completed the competition, so I believe that your medicinal skills are not low. Everyone should be aware of the competition this time. No matter which position you’re in, as long as you can cure my wife, the ten thousand year old Profound Moon Fruit is yours.”

When they heard of the ten thousand year old Profound Moon Fruit, everyone got excited. It seemed like they had also come here in chase of that item.

“Patriarch He, relax. One of us will definitely be able to awake your wife.” A lady wearing a skirt appeared and bowed in front of He Zhang Zhen, “May I be able to see your wife now? Only upon seeing her will know the cause of her illness.”

“You are right. Everyone, please come with me.” He Zhang Zhen led them to a house behind him.

Sima You Yue watched as the lady dressed in white walked in with her head held high and said, “It looks like she is very confident in her abilities!”

“Being the first in this competition to cure her sick person is proof that she has one or two abilities to her. However, her words are aplenty now. In a moment, she will be shamed.” Yin Lang sighed.

“Why are you so confident that she will be unable to discern the cause? Who knows, she might have a way to cure the madame!” Sima You Yue said.

“Look, in a moment, you’ll know whether or not I spoke the truth.” Yin Lang didn’t refute her.”

Sima You Yue was unfamiliar with these people and unfamiliar with Madame He’s wickness. That was why she didn’t say much and just waited for the outcome.

“They will still need a bit more time. We should go to that pavilion and rest in the meantime.” Yin Lang walked ahead to the pavilion after he spoke and some guards quickly brought in tea.

The tea wasn’t bad. It was a pity that it was not made skillfully enough, so the taste was not that great. Sima You Yue placed it down after a mouthful.

“This tea is a rare spirit tea. You can drink a few more mouthfuls and try.” Yin Lang drank a cup himself. He did rather enjoy this tea.

“I know. It’s just a pity that the taste did not manage to reach its peak.” Sima You Yue said simply.

“So you’re saying that you have done some research in the area of tea?”

“A little.”

“Then when will you brew some for me to try.”

“No way, I only brew it for my lover. He said that I’m not allowed to casually brew it for anyone else when he’s not around.”

“I’m not just anyone.” Yin Lang retorted softly.

Sima You Yue glanced at him from the corner of her eyes and said lightly, “About there.”

Did she mean that he was about the same as just anyone else?

He didn’t know why but when he heard this and heard her mention her lover, he felt uncomfortable in his heart. This feeling was strange and something he had never felt before.

Because of this kind of strange feeling, he felt a little downcast and didn’t say much while they waited.

After an hour or so passed, the doors opened and the group of girls all left with their shoulders down.

“Patriarch He, please let me try again. After a few more checks, I believe that I will be able to figure out the cause of her stupor.” The lady dressed in white seemed to be begging, but she was as haughty as before.
