Chapter 1503: The feeling of being a nouveau riche
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
These corpses were completely useless and those people dared not touch them at all.
Sima You Yue lit up a few fireballs and turned all of the dead bodies to ash.
“Oh right, we were here just now and saw a few people taking the bodies away. What did they take the bodies away for?” Shui’er asked.
Sima You Yue secretly rolled her eyes and secretly disdained her IQ.
“Who were those people who were wearing cloaks?” Xuan Qiu He’s voice was as gentle as ever, but Sima You Yue could sense that he was a little peculiar.
Who were those people wearing cloaks? Undead!
What else would they take the dead bodies away for? Obvious to create more undead!
It was such a simple question, but she had actually asked. If she wasn’t stupid then what was she?
Shui’er reacted as well and regretted asking such a stupid question as well.
Sima You Yue thought for a moment and said, “If you guys want to investigate, I can give you a clue. However, I can’t confirm its authenticity. I heard it along the way as well.”
“The Yang clan from the Sixteenth prefecture might have something to do with it.” Sima You Yue said, “But like I said before, it was just hearsay. Whether or not this is true, I don’t know. If you want to check it out, it has nothing to do with me.”
“Send back this piece of news, get men to pay more attention to the movements of the Yang clan.” Xuan Qiu He believed her without the slightest hesitation.
Eastern Lai Li hesitated for a moment. She didn’t say anything. It appeared that she did not trust her.
Sima You Yue didn’t pursue it either. In any case, she was the one who decided whether or not to say it. To believe it or not was their choice.
If not because it would help alleviate some stress from Uncle He, she didn’t want to mention the Yang Clan either.
“It’s getting late. Let’s find a place to set up camp.” Xuan Qiu He said.
They arrived at an oasis and they wouldn’t rush through the night. However, they often heard the sound of battling.
There were dead bodies here. Although you couldn’t see it anymore, but it made them feel uncomfortable. As such, they walked forwards more before setting up camp.
Sima You Yue set her tent a distance away from Eastern Lai Li, and the centre of it was even the Xuan Qiu He.
An Lei hesitated in front of the tent for a moment before going into Sima You Yue’s tent.
Sima You Yue glanced at Wu Lingyu. He intuitively understood and waved his hand to set up a barrier.
An Lei was rather suspicious, but she very consciously did not ask.
She probably came to ask about the Eastern Lai Clan. By this time, should she say it or not?
“Come over here.” Sima You Yue said.
An Lei walked over. Since she was her Master now, what reason did she have to disobey?
“In a moment, no matter what I do, don’t resist.” Sima You Yue stretched forth her hand.
An Lei took a subconscious step back. She looked at her warily, “What do you want to do?”
She had already left a mark on her inner body, was that not enough?
“Eastern Lai Li left her own mark on your body when she removed Eastern Lai Clan’s mark. Towards this, do you know what will happen?”
An Lei’s body shook. Of course she knew what would happen!
She saw a faint thread line from her wrist and the corner of her lips hooked up into a smile. To make it so she couldn’t even detect it, if not because they wanted to chase her for a hundred miles, what else was it for?
Once she had this, no matter where Eastern Lai Li was, they would be able to find her. The moment she betrayed the clan, with this on her body, she knew what it was for.
They wanted to kill her!
“How did you?” She looked at Sima You Yue.
“Don’t forget that you have my mark in you.” Sima You Yue said, “We’ll be able to enter the mine in two days. I don’t want you to bring me trouble. Come here.’
An Lei didn’t ask her whether or not she would be able to get rid of the seal for her. Since she was able to detect it, getting rid if it… should not be an issue.
Sima You Yue had always known the soul well. Adding Wu Lingyu’s pointers, she had no problem getting rid of the seal at all.
The process was a little painful, but it was a good thing that they had some time. A few minutes later, Sima You Yue was able to get rid of the seal on Sima You Yue’s body.
The line on her wrist was gone, so the Eastern Lai Clan wouldn’t be able to chase after her next time.
‘It’s done.” Sima You Yue wiped the sweat off her forehead and her face was a little pale.
An Lei looked at her directly and said blankly, “Why?”
“Why did you want to save me?”
In order to get rid of the seal, she had used a lot of energy. It wasn’t easy at all.
“What do you mean why?” Sima You Yue ate a pill, “You are one of my people. Of course I have to ascertain that you won’t be killed by Eastern Lai Clan. I still have areas where I need you!”
Places where she was needed? An Lei lowered her head. However, why did she feel as if Sima You Yue’s eyes were not saying that!
“Take these pills. Your hand will heal in two days.” Sima You Yue handed a bottle of pills to her.
An Lei looked at the pills with surprise. When she went back, she ate one pill. That night, she could feel that her hand was itchy. On the second day, when she took the pill at Sima You Yue had given her, she realised that flesh was already beginning to grow.
“So amazing?” She looked at her hand with disbelief.
“The pill that I had given to you was a pill to regrow the flesh and bones of humans. Would it not be quick?” Sima You Yue said as she applied medicine for her. “A single piece costs a few tens of thousands. Do you think I’m boasting!”
“Then I cannot eat anymore.” An Lei thought about how there were still two pills left and couldn’t bring herself to eat anymore.
“Eat it since I’ve given it to you. When your hand has healed, help me once we enter the mine. Otherwise, you will drag me down.” Sima You Yue said, “Although this pill is precious, with me here, it doesn’t count for much. Just eat it.”
Eh, why did she feel like she was nouveau riche?
“Thank you… Young Miss.” She still felt awkward.
At the same time, she was very shocked. In their eyes, Sima You Yue was just a bumpkin from the side. However, she was actually this good.
While speaking, Sima You Yue had already wrapped her wound. She nagged her to remind her to eat medicine to let her hands heal more quickly.
After two days, they left the grasslands and entered the mountains. At this time it implied that they already entered the ancient mines.
The vegetation on the mountain was trampled, showing that many people had already come.
They had wandered around the mountain for half a month and met many people, but they didn’t see a single mine. Many people had started worrying, including Eastern Lai Li.
“Young Miss, even you can’t sense anything?” When they were resting, those from the Eastern Lai Clan surrounded her and asked.
“I can’t sense it.” Eastern Lai Li shook her head, “I can sense that it’s all around, but I don’t see anything.”
She sounded quite defeated.
“Don’t worry. If even you can’t find it, others won’t be able to either. Let’s take it slow.” Xuan Qiu He comforted her.
“Mm.” When he said this, Eastern Lai Li wasn’t as anxious anymore.
Sima You Yue was by the side. She had taken off An Lei’s bandage and could see her hand had recovered. She smiled, “How is it, I told you that you would recover right?”
The attention of the others had suddenly been drawn over.
