“An Lei, how did your hand get healed?” Shui’er cried out with shock.
An Lei shook her hand. That fleshy feeling.. It didn’t change.
Her hand was really healed!
Sima You Yue had told her before that it would heal in less than half a month and she was still rather suspicious, but she was now completely convinced.
“An Lei, I’m talking to you! You dare to ignore me!” Shui’er saw that she had ignored her and walked over, yelling.
An Lei stared at her and thought of what Sima You Yue had said to her. She said, “Why should I bother about you? I’m no longer your subordinate. What right do you have to scold me?”
“You…” When Shui’er saw that An Lei had actually talked back to her, she stretched forth a hand and wanted to hit her.
“Lady Shui’er, An Lei is now one of my people. If you hit her, do you mean to make an enemy out of me?” Sima You Yue stood up, and the gaze with which she looked at Shui’er caused one to tremble involuntarily.
This person, how could she have that kind of gaze?
“I know, you’re not happy with us because we let An Lei become my servant girl, so you want to get some dignity back. If not for Xuan Qiu He, you probably would have chased us away long ago.” Sima You Yue interrupted her, “Actually, making me leave is easy. You just have to open your mouth and say it. You don’t have to do it in such a roundabout way.
These few days, those from the Eastern Lai Clan had been setting themselves against Sima You Yue and the others. If not because she wanted to wait for An Lei’s hand to heal and rub it in their faces, she would have left long ago.
Xuan Qiu He’s expression turned solemn as he placed one hand on top of the other. Those from the Xuan Qiu clan knew that he was upset now.
When Eastern Lai Li saw this, she said with a smile, “Young Miss You Yue’s words are too harsh. We have never had this intention.”
“Of course.” Eastern Lai LI said, “You are He’s friend. How could we chase you away? For An Lei’s situation, it’s because she couldn’t afford to pay you, and she isn’t from our Eastern Lai Clan. This naturally has nothing to do with us. Do not be mistaken.”
“Is that so?”
“You Yue, by this point, it will be too dangerous for you guys to leave on your own.” Xuan Qiu He said, “You should stay with us.”
“Things like danger and whatnot are not something I mind. What I am afraid of, is that when the time comes, we will only be able to find the mine because of their strength.” Sima You Yue said, “I know that we are not very acquainted with you, so to avoid something like this from happening, we better take our separate ways.”
“Do you really want to leave?” Xuan Qiu He asked.
Xuan Qiu He looked over to Wu Lingyu’s direction and fell silent for a moment, saying, “Alright then. Contact me if you end up in any danger.”
He took out a mother-son stone that was used for contacting each other and gave one to her.
Sima You Yue took it.
“Half a year later, I will wait for you at the exit.” Xuan Qiu He said.
Sima You Yue wanted to say that it was not necessary, but she thought of how she still wanted to ask him about the divine medicine and could only nod.
Half a year’s time. It should be enough.
“Why don’t you give me one of your temporary life jades.” Xuan Qiu He said.
Sima You Yue took out a jade stone and dripped a drop of blood on it and imbued some spirit energy. She let the blood fuse with the jade stone and a temporary life jade was made.
“If I don’t come out for a long time, you guys should go back first. I’ll look for you later on regarding your body.” Sima You Yue said.
Xuan Qiu He didn’t say that he would definitely wait for her or anything like that. It might end up stressing her instead.
Wu Lingyu held onto Sima You Yue’s hand and left without a single bit of reluctance. He had wanted to leave long ago. He was upset having to face people who did nothing but look disdainfully on his woman.
An Lei and Flowey hurried to catch up and the four of them quickly disappeared from everyone’s sight.
Eastern Lai Li watched as Sima You Yue left and felt a lot more relaxed and her mood got a lot better.
“Let us continue searching as well.” She said to Xuan Qiu He with a smile.
“I’m thinking that we should take our separate ways here as well.” Xuan Qiu He said, “Since we have already reached this point, there shouldn’t be much danger further up.”
Eastern Lai Li didn’t expect that Xuan Qiu He would suddenly talk about leaving, and was temporarily stunned.
“Although our clans have interacted well, this isn’t a small issue. In order to avoid troubles in the future, it would be better to split up here.” Xuan Qiu He didn’t give her an opportunity to speak as he continued, “If you encounter any troubles, you can contact me as well. Good bye.”
“Elder Zhi, let’s go.”
Then, he really led his Xuan Qiu clan members and left.
Her pride as a lady prevented her from asking him to stay. She could only watch as he got further and further.
Actually, she wanted to say that she could already sense the position of the mine. It was just that Sima You Yue was around, so she didn’t say it.
She even wanted to say that, if the two clans clashed, she was willing to give in to him.
They could feel the chill emanating from her, so the Eastern Lai Clansmen did not dare to talk to her. After a long moment passed, she finally recovered and said, “Let’s go”
Since he didn’t accept her feelings, she would not force it. As for what happened later, she would talk about it later. She first had to deal with the issue of the mine. If they were able to reap some benefits, it would be best to be able to obtain a few ancient spirit beasts. Then, the position of the Eastern Lai Clan would be able to rise up amongst the great secret clans.
As for her unrequited love, she would put it behind her.
After SIma You Yue left them, she walked slowly up ahead with Wu LIngyu. They were not anxious as they looked for the mine.
Flowey was behind them, hugging a tree branch and munching on it. After eating it for such a long time, it was tough on her teeth as well.
An Lei watched how leisurely the three of them were. Which part of them looked like they had come here in search of treasure?
“Young Miss, are you not anxious?” She couldn’t help but ask.
“Anxious about what?” Sima You Yue smiled, “Little Golden is asleep.”
Little Golden was asleep? What did that mean?
Sima You Yue didn’t say too much. As for her situation, An Lei would slowly know of them.
A few days later, An Lei finally understood what she meant when she said that Little Golden was asleep. When she saw Little Golden’s eyes that were hazy from having just woken up, she was immediately drawn by them.
“Yue Yue.” Little Golden realised that it was in Sima You Yue’s hand and rubbed itself against her palm.
“Little Golden, this place has something you’ll like.” Sima You Yue said.
“Something I’ll like?” Little Golden’s first reaction was that of shock, then it stood up excitedly, “I can smell it! It’s such an attractive scent!”
“Take us there.” Sima You Yue beamed as she petted its head.
“Yes, yes!” Little Golden hurriedly slithered to Sima You Yue’s neck and coiled around it, using its tail to lead the way.
They followed Little Golden’s direction and crossed over the mountains. Finally, a few days later, they arrived at a mountain that was not too tall.
“It’s here, it’s here!” Little Golden said as it wanted to jump down, but was caught by Sima You Yue.
“Don’t be anxious. First let me check out the situation.” Sima You Yue released some scarlet bees and got them to fly to the mountain. Shortly after, it was unknown why, but they all died.
Her expression turned solemn, “This place is truly hard to enter.”
