The manner in which she mentioned being eroded by death aura was as if it was nothing serious, but by looking at the servant, they knew it was.
“You said that our members aren’t a match of yours when you just reached Monarch rank. You do know how to brag.” Shui’er didn’t believe what she said, “Tell us, what exactly happened?”
“I’ve already told you, believe it or not.” Sima You Yue didn’t like Shui’er, “You guys can go and search the other directions if you think I’m lying. It’s none of my business if she suffers anyway.”
“You….” Eastern Lai Li bit her lips, people who knew her knew that she would do that everytime she had to tolerate something. “Young Miss You Yue, do you have any ways to save her? It’s too painful for her.”
That was so superficial. Sima You Yue pursed her lips.
“You Yue, do you have any ways to solve this?” Xuan Qiu Zhi asked.
She might have a solution to deal with the death aura since she didn’t get hurt when she checked the bodies and could also point out that there was death aura in the bodies.
“There is a way, just that there’s a price to pay.” Sima You Yue continued, “But I think people like Young Miss Eastern Lai who cherish her servants wouldn’t mind paying this price.”
“What do you need?”
“I have a pill that stops the death aura, but this kind of pill is very hard to get, not to mention that the medicinal ingredients are precious, it’s also very hard to get and…..”
“Just tell me, how much do you need?” Eastern Lai Li interrupted her.
“Fifty thousand for a pill, but I think she will need two. Since we’ve already known each other for so long, I’ll give you a thirty percent discount, you just have to pay me seventy thousand.” Sima You Yue said with a smile.
“What?! Why is it so expensive?” Shui’er cried out before Eastern Lai Li could speak.
With thirty five thousand for a pill, they could have gotten a tenth grade pill in the market.
Also, which outsiders wouldn’t show respect to hidden families? They definitely wouldn’t charge that much even if they didn’t give it for free. This woman was doing it on purpose!
“This pill doesn’t come cheap!” Sima You Yue chimed in by nodding her head, “That’s why I didn’t suggest it earlier on.”
“You have to see the situation if it’s expensive or not.” Wu Lingyu rarely interrupts, “It’s not that expensive if it can trade for a life. It will be expensive if you think that money is more valuable.”
This sentence justified so much that Eastern Lai Li couldn’t say anything.
Wouldn’t Eastern Lai members think that their life wasn’t worth the money if she wasn’t willing to pay? If they thought this way, the servants, guards and even the clan members would be utterly disappointed.
Eastern Lai Li shot a glance at Wu Lingyu, she had forgotten about him since the start!
“Shui’er, give them the money.” Although she had a smile on her face, her gaze became cold.
“Young Miss.” Shui’er frowned.
“It’s just crystals, how can it compare to the lives of Eastern Lai’s members?” Eastern Lai Li continued, “Young Lady You Yue, sorry to trouble you. Is it alright just by taking the pills?”
“Of course not.” Sima You Yue continued, “We’re a team, I’ve saved you from my appearance fee. If it was others, I wouldn’t budge if there isn’t at least thirty to fifty thousand.”
She made it seem like she had already made it cheap for them which made Shui’er and the rest filled with anger.
“Then what should we do?”
“You won’t understand even if I told you.” Sima You Yue continued, “I’ll need to keep it a secret since it’s the art of healing.”
They felt uncomfortable after hearing her first sentence initially, but they understood what she meant when she mentioned the last sentence.
Not only her, other occupation masters wouldn’t like it when others tried to get to the heart of the matter.
Shui’er stared hatefully at the servant who was on the floor, it felt bad to use such a big sum to save a servant.
Eastern Lai Li didn’t care about the money, it was nothing for hidden families. But it was indeed worthless to use the money to buy a servant’s life.
But she had to maintain a perfect impression when Xuan Qiu He was there.
Sima You Yue collected the money and was feeling good, she took out a pill and gave it to the servant.
“What is your name?” Sima You Yue asked as she smiled at her.
“An Lei.” The servant swallowed the pills and the pain in her arms started to cease, seeing Sima You Yue’s smile, her panic mood started to calm down.
“An Lei, it’s a nice name.” Sima You Yue continued, “It’ll be a bit more painful later, you’ll have to bear with it. But you have to believe me that I’ll return you a new pair of hands.”
An Lei looked at Sima You Yue, seeing that she was smiling with confident eyes, she nodded subconsciously, “I believe in you.”
Believe in a young lady who was only a few decades old? This would never happen to her in the past. But Sima You Yue’s eyes made her believe in her like magic.
Sima You Yue stopped smiling and put on a serious face while she looked at An Lei’s arm. Although the fire attributes isolated the death aura, the erosion from it was critical, the flesh on the fingers were corroded and bones were seen.
And the pus still had a pungent smell.
Those who initially wanted to see how Sima You Yue save An Lei went far away to avoid the smell.
Sima You Yue lifted her head as she looked at those people and said, “Young Miss Eastern Lai, I’ll bring her somewhere far to treat her. The smell will get worse later.”
Eastern Lai Li nodded quickly since she hated the pungent smell when she heard Sima You Yue and said, “Sorry to trouble Young Miss You Yue.”
“Which one of you can help her there?” Sima You Yue asked.
The servants turned their head to a side, same goes for the one who An Lei initially helped.
“It seems like no one is willing to help you.” Sima You Yue sighed, “Forget it, I’ll help you all the way.”
Sima You Yue supported her up and brought her to the col. Wu Lingyu followed with his hands clasped behind him.
“Take a seat.” Sima You Yue held her to a stone and said, “Let me remove the death aura for you.”
As she spoke, she summoned Little Birdie and burned the death aura little by little carefully.
An Lei felt hot when Little Birdie came out, she was worried that it would burn her when it touched and covered her arm, unexpectedly, it didn’t feel like what she thought. Instead, the pain in her fingers became lesser as the death aura was lessened.
But afterwards, it became more painful from her fingers, she bit her lips without making any painful sound.
“Bear with it, I’ll get Little Birdie to set the rotten flesh on fire to burn it, it’s better than having me cutting it off.” Sima You Yue explained where the pain came from as she was drenched with her own sweat.
