He Zhen Zhang and Su Liu Nian wanted to see Sima You Yue?
Sima Zhi Yuan and Sima He Shun knew that Sima You Yue and the He clan were close but something must have happened if they came to look for her in person.
“Bring Patriarch He and Madame He to the living room and get someone to notify You Yue.”
Although they were looking for Sima You Yue, he had to welcome them as they were a big clan and the Patriarch came personally.
Sima You Yue heard something while she was in the Spirit Pagoda, so she stepped out and heard that He Zhen Zhang brought his wife to see her.
“I got it, I’ll be there in a second.” Sima You Yue nodded to the guards. She went back into the Spirit Pagoda once again and changed before heading out.
When she walked to the living room, Sima Zhi Yuan was entertaining He Zhen Zhang and Su Liu Nian. Su Liu Nian smiled when she saw Sima You Yue and said, “This girl became stronger just in a few years.”
“Greetings to Great Grandfather, Uncle He and Aunt He.” Sima You Yue bowed in greeting to them before sitting next to Su Liu Nian.
“You Yue, thank you for helping Su You.” Su Liu Nian said gratefully.
She heard from her clan that Sima You Yue asked Feng Zhi Xing to save Su You and the Su clan. Su You would be dead by now if it wasn’t for them.
“It’s nothing, don’t mention it. My Master was the one who did everything and I didn’t do much.” Sima You Yue said. She didn’t want to be involved in it so she asked, “I heard Uncle He was looking for me, is there anything?”
“I actually have something to tell you.” He Zhen Zhang said as he took out a box and passed it to Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue opened the box and saw some information inside and said in shock after she took a look, “They’re already rampant?”
He Zhen Zhang nodded, “We wouldn’t get this much information if they weren’t.”
“What are you talking about?” Sima Zhi Yuan tried to make guesses and He Zhen Zhang didn’t tell him but told his Great Granddaughter. He highly suspected that this guy would sell Sima You Yue away.
Sima You Yue then remembered that the Sima clan didn’t know about the undead so she briefly told him about what happened. Sima Zhi Yuan’s face sunk when he heard about it.
“Someone actually dared to keep the undead!” He hit the table, but luckily he didn’t use too much strength or else the table would be destroyed.
“Great Grandfather, take a look at this and discuss it with Great Granduncle and the Clan Elders.” Sima You Yue passed the information to him and said, “Since it’s the first time that Uncle He has come to our Sima residence, I’ll bring them around to have a look.”
How could Sima Zhi Yuan not understand what she meant? He had to let the Sima clan know about this without He Zhen Zhang around them, so it was best to let Sima You Yue entertain them.
He waved his hands and said, “Alright, take good care of Patriarch He and Madame He.”
Sima You Yue brought He Zhen Zhang and Su Liu Nian around the house and her courtyard.
“You Yue, why aren’t you discussing it with them?” Su Liu Nian asked.
“Everyone still clearly remembers what happened that very year. They resent my Mother and will definitely bring up the Ghost Aura I have in my body if they mentioned about the undead. It won’t be nice to make them unhappy. It’s better that I keep away from it.” Sima You Yue said.
Actually, she put too much thought into it. The Sima clan respected her so much that they didn’t care about what happened in the past.
“Uncle He, what do you think of the undead? You didn’t come here to look for me simply just to pass me this information, right?” Sima You Yue asked.
He Zhen Zhang did have something to tell Sima You Yue, he said without beating around the bush, “I’m planning to go to the Sixteenth State, do you want to come with me?”
“Mm, the Yang clan got some ore mine the other time, so they were thinking of arranging an ore meeting and invited many people to join.” He Zhen Zhang continued, “It is confirmed that the undead are related to them, it will be a good opportunity if we join.”
“Uncle He, was anyone else investigating the undead while you were investigating?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Yes, there were other forces that investigated it. Two of them were powerful, and they gave us some information from time to time.” He Zhen Zhang felt uneasy speaking about it.
“I think I know who it is.” Sima You Yue thought of Xuan Qiu He as her lips curled into a smile.
When she told him about the undead, she never thought that he would send someone to check on it.
The other one which was more powerful must be Eastern Lai clan.
When the Xuan Qiu Clan and Eastern Lai Clan knew about it, the Eastern Lai Clan sent someone to check on it as they didn’t want to miss out on anything.
“The Yang Clan must have guessed that someone was checking on them. They must have bad intentions if they dare call for an assembly at this time.” Sima You Yue ridiculed.
“I think the Yang clan is up to something, which is why I came to ask if you wanted to go. You’re sensitive to the undead, so it will be good if you come. But it will be a dangerous trip, so it’s fine even if you don’t want to go.”
“Let me think about it.” Sima You Yue didn’t give an answer.
Her strength wouldn’t be strong enough if Wu Lingyu wasn’t with her. And the forces that the Yang Clan invited would be strong. Her safety might be compromised if it became messy.
She had to discuss it with her Father.
“We still have two days before we set off. Take your time.”
That means that she had two days’ time. She would have to go by herself if she didn’t follow them.
Before they left, Su Lian Nian patted her hand and said, “I don’t wish for you to go, it’s dangerous there.”
“I’ll think about it.” Sima You Yue smiled at Su Liu Nian.
“We’ll take our leave now.”
They stayed in an inn outside, if Sima You Yue looked for them two days later, it would mean that she was going with them.
Sima clan’s discussion was dismissed when Sima You Yue went back. She went to look for Sima Zhi Yuan to tell him about the things that He Zhen Zhang came for.
“Great Grandfather, should I go with Uncle He?” She asked.
“Do you want to go?” Sima Zhi Yuan asked in reply.
“I want to go there and have a look. But there are many powerful people out there, it will be dangerous if I go out.” She stayed in the Sima residence for about three years, but it would be thirty years, as she was in Spirit Pagoda the whole time. She did want to go out and gain some experience.
