Chapter 1463: Collaboration between Human and Ghost
Everyone looked at her while waiting for her answer.
Physicians and Alchemists that stayed in the He Clan ran over and stayed in the courtyard when they heard about the news.
They didn’t believe that a young lady would be able to find the cause when they couldn’t.
They stood at the side of the courtyard waiting for her answer while looking at her.
Sima You Yue unconsciously creased her eyebrows as she didn’t expect there would be so many people outside when she came out.
“Why are there so many people?” She was unhappy.
He Zhen Zhang’s steward answered almost immediately, “Master, I’ll bring them out.”
He Zhen Zhang waved his hand and the steward immediately sent them out.
After the courtyard became peaceful, Sima You Yue told He Zhen Zhang, “Let’s talk in the room. Don’t let anyone come close.”
Without He Zhen Zhang saying anything, the steward immediately isolated the people in the courtyard.
Sima clan members followed in, He Zhen Zhang didn’t say anything.
“You Yue, have you checked it?” He asked again.
“I have.” Sima You Yue said.
“Really?” It was one of the most exciting times for He Zhen Zhang in the past few years. He gripped Sima You Yue’s hand, “What happened to Liu Nian? Since you’ve found the cause, why isn’t she awake yet?”
“Although I found out the cause of it, I haven’t saved her yet.” Sima You Yue said.
“Why?” Zhen Zhang didn’t understand, “Was it tiring?”
“No.” Sima You Yue shook her head, “Before that, I need to know. How did Aunt He fall into a coma?”
“How did she fall into a coma?” He Zhen Zhang recalled what happened and said, “Initially, she went out with a few maids and was suddenly attacked, when I rushed over, all of them were dead. Except for her, as she had protection from a piece of spiritual jade that she carries by her side. Fortunately, it garnered enough time for me to get there. After which, I used a lot of pills and the wounds on her body finally healed, but she became like this.”
“With that said, you haven’t seen who was the one that attacked her?” Sima You Yue asked.
“No, I did not. But I didn’t give up searching in the past few years, I’ve been investigating and had a rough idea.” He Zhen Zhang continued, “Why, is this related to Su Liu Nian’s coma?”
“Yes.” Sima You Yue continued, “I suspect that the attack was related to the Ghost Clan.”
“Ghost Clan? Why is the Ghost Clan involved?” Huang Ying Ying frowned.
Because of Sima Liu Xuan, Sima clan had a stronger connection to the Ghost Clan. They didn’t want to be involved with the Ghost Clan.
He Zhen Zhang was very surprised because from what he investigated, it had nothing to do with the Ghost Clan.
“Aunt He didn’t wake up from the coma not because of her internal injuries. It was because her soul has been kept somewhere deep in her sea of consciousness.” Sima You Yue continued, “And the place where her soul is kept is filled with Ghost Clan’s aura.”
“How did that happen!” He Zhen Zhang was blanked, “Are there any ways to help her?”
“I do have a way but the risk is too high.” Sima You Yue continued, “And I need to prepare for it.”
At least, she had to be at her most conscious state.
She was already exhausted and wasn’t in a good condition to treat Su Liu Nian.
“Is it troublesome?” Huang Ying Ying asked.
“It’s not easy.” Sima You Yue continued, “Aunt He’s soul is already weak and she is imprisoned now, so it’s not easy to get her out of imprisonment. Luckily my body is….. special, that’s why I dared to give it a try. If it was others, they would be hurt if they come close, not to mention about rescuing her soul.”
Everyone understood that when she mentioned being special, it meant that she had the Ghost Clan’s bloodline in her body.
“How did Madame get implicated with the Ghost Clan?” Sima Xiu Qi asked.
“No, the information we’ve gotten from investigating had nothing to do with the Ghost Clan, it only involved a few forces from the inner regions.” He Zhen Zhang said.
He Zhen Zhang hesitated for a while and said, “Yang clan from the Sixteenth State.”
Sima You Yue’s heart skipped a beat. Yang clan, could it be the clan of Yang Xi?
“Are you sure it’s the Yang clan?” She asked.
“With the clues that I have now, yes.” He Zhen Zhang said affirmedly.
“Did Yang clan collaborate with the Ghost Clan?” Sima Zhi Yuan asked something that everyone was thinking.
And that was very possible.
“But, why did the Yang clan attack Aunt He?” Sima You Yue didn’t understand.
“I have no clue, I’ll only know when she wakes up.” After He Zhen Zhang spoke, he glanced at Su Liu Nian who was lying on the bed with guilt in his eyes.
After so many years, he didn’t know that her soul was trapped by the Ghost Clan.
He had let her down!
Sima You Yue was moved by He Zhen Zhang’s gaze.
“Uncle He, you don’t have to be guilty. If it wasn’t for your perseverance, Aunt He wouldn’t be able to survive up till now.”
He Zhen Zhang didn’t expect that he would be comforted by one from the younger generation, but the sincerity in her eyes didn’t make him feel shameful.
She was a young generation that had been considerate, no wonder Sima Zhi Yuan held her dearly.
“When can you get her to wake up?”
“I have to recover my consciousness and prepare some pills that she will need to take when she wakes up. So, I need some time to prepare.” Sima You Yue said.
“I have everything in the storeroom, just take it from there if you need anything.”
Sima You Yue didn’t stand on courtesy. It was used to treat his wife anyway, so he should pay for it.
The main steward brought her to look for all the medicinal ingredients that she needed. Once they reached the storeroom, she realised that the He clan was a house filled with riches and had a huge storeroom full of collections.
She saw many treasures in the storeroom and thought to herself, did the Yang clan attack Su Liu Nian because he was rich?
She laughed to herself. The collection of items might seem a lot to her but it might not be a lot for others. The Yang clan wouldn’t attack Su Liu Nian just because of this.
She brought the steward to get some medicinal ingredients, and she made the steward carry all of it without taking any for herself.
After she finished choosing the medicinal ingredients and went to the room that He Zhen Zhang prepared for her, she used the medicinal ingredients that she took and refined it into a pill.
After which, she drank some Spirit Fluid and meditated and adjusted her consciousness to the best state.
She went into Su Liu Nian’s room while He Zhen Zhang stood up excitedly after seeing her and said, “Can we begin?”
Sima You Yue nodded, she chased everyone out of the room just like last time, fixed up the spirit barrier and summoned Little Seven.
“Little Seven, just like before, you have to protect her sea of consciousness.” Sima You Yue continued, “There might be a stronger movement later, you have to be very careful.”
“Yue Yue, don’t worry.” Little Seven nodded solemnly.
She would definitely cooperate since Yue Yue wanted to save her.
