Chapter 1500: A skeletal hand

Translator: Misty Cloud Translations  Editor: Misty Cloud Translations

There was only a bare white skeleton left after Little Birdie burnt all the corroded flesh.

Sima You Yue applied an ointment on her and said, “I’ll give you this for free as well. This is a specially formulated spirit medicine.”

“Thank you.” An Lei said.

After applying the ointment, Sima You Yue brought out a bandage and wrapped around the skeleton on her fingers carefully.

“Why do I feel like they don’t really care about you?” She tied a botknow on the back of her palm.

“They are…. actually nice people.” An Lei stuttered.

“Why do they hate you so much?” Sima You Yue continued, “I noticed that they despised you a lot and the only one that is close to you is the servant you helped. Why is that so?”

An Lei pulled a bitter smile, “Some people are born to be despised.”

“There’s only one reason for a woman to bully another woman and that is jealously.” Sima You Yue continued, “They are either jealous of their beauty or talent. I guessed it’s impossible to be jealous about your appearance. What about the latter?”

An Lei shook her head and said, “There are other reasons.”

“What is the reason?” Sima You Yue looked while sitting opposite of her with both palm supporting her chin.


“Oh?” Sima You Yue got more curious, she measured her up and down and said, “I don’t see any difference!”

An Lei smiled bitterly without saying anything.

“Why didn’t you leave Eastern Lai Clan since they hate you so much?”

“Eastern Lai Clan will not tolerate betrayal given the characters they have. There’s only one way to leave, die.” An Lei went into daze while looking afar.

She wanted to leave so badly but she didn’t want to die. She wanted to have a proper life. This was what she promised her Mother before her death.

Sima You Yue was moved as she watched her gaze.

“Would you be willing to leave Eastern Lai Clan to follow me?” She asked.

“What?” An Lei couldn’t react when she heard her.

“I said, would you be willing to leave Eastern Lai Clan to follow me if I ask your Young Miss for you?” Sima You Yue asked.

“Why? You don’t have a good impression on Eastern Lai Clan.” An Lei looked at her with vigilance.

“I do have a bad impression on them, your Young Miss is too arrogant and egoistic, she is hostile to me with no reason as well. I don’t have to put up a front just to curry favor with her although I came from a small town.” Sima You Yue didn’t care if she ridiculed about Eastern Lai Li in front of An Lei.

“You have a few minutes to consider.” Sima You Yue continued, “You can forget what I said if you don’t agree by the time I go back.”

“Young Miss won’t agree to it.” An Lei said.

“You don’t have to worry about this.” Sima You Yue continued, “But I have a condition for you. I’ll need your absolute loyalty if you decide to follow me, I’ll need you to take an oath.”

She stood up ignoring An Lei’s shocked gaze and said, “You can consider.”

She only knew An Lei for a short while so she didn’t want to risk anything having her by her side and decided that making an oath would be the best choice.

An Lei lowered her head with a lot of thoughts running through her mind.

To agree or not?

Sima You Yue didn’t want to disturb her so she talked to Wu Lingyu about other matters.

Wu Lingyu wasn’t in shock when he heard that she wanted to adopt An Lei. Actually, he wouldn’t be in shock regardless of what she did because he would definitely support her at anything she does.

Both Xuan Qiu and Eastern Lai Clan stopped walking at afar, the corpses on the floor were still the same, no one dared to touch them at all.

After a while, Sima You Yue took out a second pill for An Lei and said, “Eat it. You’ll be fine after eating the healing pill later.”

An Lei ate the pill and said, “Thank you.”

“So what are your thoughts about it?” Sima You Yue asked while seeing that she was hesitating and said, “You only have one chance, it’s up to you to bet and see if it will change your destiny!”

An Lei became enlightened after hearing this, she would definitely not miss it if this was the only chance to change her life!

Would it get worse if the result wasn’t what she wanted?

Mother wouldn’t blame her even when her time comes….

“I’ll follow you.” She looked at Sima You Yue, “But you have to give me the freedom to do anything I want.”

“I didn’t pin you to my body.” Sima You Yue stood up, “Let’s go, let’s go back there. You don’t have to say anything when we get back there, just leave it to me.”

An Lei followed them behind nervously. If she didn’t manage to convince Young Miss, her days in Eastern Lai Clan would be worse in the future.

Eastern Lai Li and Xuan Qiu He were talking, the rest were speculating as they surrounded the corpses, but no one dared to touch them.

“They are back.”

Everyone’s gaze turned to An Lei’s hand, they didn’t know how it would look like now as it was wrapped with bandages, but they couldn’t sense any death aura on it.

“Young Miss.” An Lei bowed in greeting to Eastern Lai Li and backed to the side.

“You Yue, sorry to trouble you.” Xuan Qiu He smiled as he looked in her direction.

“It’s alright even though it’s a little tiring.” Sima You Yue continued, “Young Miss Eastern Lai, you can settle the bill now that I’ve treated her.”

“Did you really treat her?” Aqua didn’t believe it.

“You can unwrap her bandage to check if you don’t believe me!” Sima You Yue was indifferent.

Usually no one would check with that said, but Aqua went ahead to untie An Lei’s bandage without any hesitation.


She screamed in surprise upon seeing the skeletal palm and took a few steps back.

That palm exposed in front of everyone.

“Why did it become like this?” Eastern Lai Li turned away disgusted and didn’t want to take another look.

“The death aura has corroded her flesh, it’s good enough that I can save her bones.” Sima You Yue continued, “You guys don’t have to worry about it, it still can be treated as long as you don’t mind spending money, it can recover if I make more flesh and bone spirit medicine. I estimated that it will need thirty five thousand crystals.”

Another thirty five thousand crystals? It will be a hundred thousand with addition to that seventy thousand!

How could a servant worth a hundred thousand of top grade crystals?

That was a definite no!

They couldn’t punish An Lei for some reason, but they also didn’t want to see a girl with a skeletal hand showing up around them!

How could such a person like that be around a perfectionist?!
