Chapter 1573: Renege
Sima You Yue kept watching him. She saw that he was only shocked for a short moment and was not too surprised.
“Aren’t you worried?”
“I actually guessed it as well.” Xuan Qiu He said, “I could sense that the seal had been loosening these years. If not because of the fortuitous encounter I had in the Immortal Lands that suppressed it somewhat, I’m afraid that it would have already…”
“Then do you know what is being sealed?”
“It’s not anything good.” Xuan Qiu He said, “Otherwise, why would they seal it away?”
“That’s not a given.” Sima You Yue saw that he was not worried and felt like she did not need to worry too much, “It was sealed away since you were born. That might mean that it was because it was too oppressive and your body was unable to handle it at that time, so they sealed it away. Now, the condition of your body and strength may be able to withstand that power.”
“I hope that’s the case.” Xuan Qiu He smiled, not speaking more about it.
Sima You Yue knew that he didn’t want to continue the conversation on this topic. After all, this was his secret.
“I’ll be heading back first. I’ll come again in two days.”
Xuan Qiu He stopped smiling once she left.
Power that he could not withstand? He wished it were true…
He was unable to cultivate and unable to get off the bed, so he continued to sleep. In another two to three days, he would be able to see the world and know what colors meant. He would finally know what the blue sky and white clouds looked like.
After sleeping for two days, by the time he opened his eyes, he saw the blue bedsheet. He could see the colours clearly, and he was so stunned that he fell into a daze.
A servant girl happened to come in and saw Xuan Qiu He’s eyes. She stepped forward and said, “Master, it’s time to take your medicine.”
“What colour is this?” Xuan Qiu He asked.
“What?” The servant girl couldn’t react for a moment.
“I said, what colour is this?” XUan Qiu He pointed at the bedsheet, lifting up his head to look at her.
The servant girl was shocked as she finally said excitedly, “Young Master, you can see? I’m going to tell the Matriarch!”
After saying this, she turned around and ran out.
“In any case, just tell me what colour it is…” Xuan Qiu He laughed.
He lifted his legs and realised that he could move them. He exerted a bit of energy and sat up.
He looked at his hands, then at his legs. With a light push, he got off the bed.
He tried taking two steps forwards and then stopped where he was.
“I can really see and walk.’ He muttered, he couldn’t hold back a smile.
He walked out of the room and stood at the door. He looked at the trees and grass in the courtyard, then raised his head to look at the blue sky and clouds.
Blue. So it turned out that the bedsheets were blue. It was the same colour as the sky.
When Sun Yu Wei and the others arrived, they saw Xuan Qiu He standing there in a daze. They noticed that he was in a daze and his shoulders were light. It was probably the first time he had ever experienced this in his entire life. She immediately smiled.
“He’er.” She called out lightly.
“Mother.” Xuan Qiu He felt like his mother was really beautiful.
“You can see and walk?” Xuan Qiu Fu Xi asked.
“I can, Father.”
“That’s good.” Sun Yu Wei looked excitedly at her son. It had been so many years. He was finally able to see what the world was like.
The smile on Xuan Qiu He’s face was light, but he could feel true joy from the bottom of his heart.
“Invite Lady You Yue over. Get her to take a look at He’er.” Sun Yu Wei said to the servant girl.
Although it was good that he was able to see, it would still be better to do a thorough check.
When Sima You Yue arrived, Xuan Qiu He had already calmed down. However, she could still sense that he was in a good mood.
“Lady You Yue, He’er can see and can walk. We called you here today because we wanted you to make sure that he’s doing well.” Sun Yu Wei said.
“Alright.” Sima You Yue came to Xuan Qiu He’s side and got him to stick out his hand to take his pulse.
Xuan Qiu He’s eyes landed on her the moment she entered the room, but he immediately looked away again. Right now, she was in front of him and he could clearly see what she looked like.
Sima You Yue took his pulse then said to Su Yu Wei, “Aunt, Big Brother He is already almost fully healed. He only needs to take the remaining three pills.”
“That’s good, that’s good.” Sun Yu Wei clapped her hands happily.
Sima You Yue saw how happy she was and was rather embarrassed. However, the issue was urgent, and she still decided to say it.
“Uncle, Aunt. We agreed beforehand that you would give me the divine medicine upon my successful treatment of Big Brother He. Now that he is well, I wonder when I will be able to obtain that divine medicine?”
The moment she said this, the house fell into silence.
Xuan Qiu Fu Xi’s expression was dark, and he was even secretly a little angry. Sun Yu Wei’s expression was stiff as well.
“About that, the divine medicine is in the secret treasure pavilion. We need three keys in order to open it, so we don’t have a way to take it now. You can return for now. Once we obtain the key, we will go to the secret treasure pavilion. How about it?”
Sima You Yue looked at Xuan Qiu He. She saw that he nodded, so she knew that this was true. She could only agree and return to her courtyard.
When she returned, she told Su Xiao Xiao and the others what happened. Han Miao Shuang slapped the table and said, “They obviously knew that you had succeeded, but didn’t take the initiative to bring out the divine medicine. Do they plan on backing out?”
“What did Xuan Qiu He say?” Jiang Jun Xian asked.
“He also said that they would need three keys simultaneously. However, some elders are still in seclusion to refine pills, so we need to wait two days.” Sima You Yue said.
“I feel like they just don’t want to hand it over.” Han Miao Shuang said with dissatisfaction.
“Let’s observe the situation.” Although Sima You Yue didn’t want to think of the worst case scenario, Sun Yu Wei and Xuan Qiu Fu Xi’s attitude was truly not too good. “I have already gotten my bees to investigate. I hope that they will not bring me the worst outcome.”
After all, it was a divine medicine and not just anybody could bear to part with it. Especially since Xuan Qiu He was already treated. Even if they backed out, his body was already well.
After three days, Xuan Qiu He’s guard told her that the elder who was refining pills was out and she was to head to the hall. He rushed over there as well.
“We’ll go with you.” Jiang Jun Xian said.
Previously, whenever she went out, they would stay in the courtyard. However, it was different this time. They didn’t know what kind of circumstances she would face when they went there. If they handed it over directly, it would be good. If they reneged, based on You Yue’s temper, there would be no room for discussion.
Sima You Yue thought of this point as well, so she agreed to his suggestion. She led them to the hall.
Inside the hall, it was currently extremely chaotic. Everyone was unwilling to hand the divine medicine over to Sima You Yue.
Sun Yu Wei was enraged as she shouted at everyone, “You already agreed before this that if she was able to treat He’er, we would give her the divine medicine. Why are you going back on your words now?”
“Who knew that she would really be able to treat the Young Master!” Someone muttered, exposing what they really thought.
“What do you mean by that?!”
“When you suggested using this in exchange, we never thought that she would actually be able to treat the young master. If she didn’t succeed, wouldn’t this trade have been voided?”
