“Patriarch Xuan Qiu, so tell me, are you giving in today or not?” Sima You Yue asked.
Xuan Qiu Fu Xi considered Sima You Yue’s words and measured his gains and losses. After pondering over it, he said, “Friend, we have already said that the divine medicine is only to be used on our clansmen. Right now, you have used the Divine Medicine. If you marry He’er, we will not pursue this matter.”
“Ha.” Sima You Yue sneered and said, “I already said that I will not pursue this matter on Big Brother He’s behalf, but this doesn’t mean that I’ll let you strut about and pretend to be anything good. You want me to join a clan like yours that goes back on their word? You’re dreaming.”
“Friend, although you have a relationship with the divine clan, you are not their clansmen. Even if we kill you, nobody will know. This condition that we are offering you is already our best compromise.” Xuan Qiu Fu Xi threatened.
“Patriarch Xuan Qiu, there is something you probably don’t know. I went to the divine clan before this and they know that I have come here. If I disappear here, will they let you off? Even if you said that I left, they would not believe you. Also, I never said that I was the only divine clansman here.”
After speaking, she inserted some spirit power into her little door. The Black Lotus Little Realm opened and Feng Xiang led her people out of the Little Realm, coming to stand behind Sima You Yue.
“Xuan Qiu Fu Xi, you are really bold, you even dare to have murderous intent towards the Young Miss of our Feng Clan!” Feng Xiang roared.
Xuan Qiu Fu Xi naturally recognised Feng Xiang. When they had dealings with the Feng Clan before, Feng Xiang was the one they had constantly interacted with. He naturally knew her position in the Feng Clan. He didn’t think that Sima You Yue would actually bring Feng Xiang out.
Xuan Qiu He knew of the Feng Clan as well. When he saw them, his expression was complicated.
On one hand, Sima You Yue would definitely be able to walk out of here safely. On the other hand, since she had brought the Feng Clansmen with her, this proved that she had never trusted in the Feng Clan to begin with, and she didn’t trust in him.
“Big Brother He, this has nothing to do with my trust in you. I’m just used to taking preventative measures.” Sima You Yue saw the pain in his eyes and said, “If I didn’t believe in you, I wouldn’t have waited until you.”
“But I’ve let you down.” Xuan Qiu He smiled bitterly. He really never thought that his clansmen would be this way.
“No, you didn’t let me down. On the other hand, I’m glad that you have let me know I didn’t acknowledge the wrong person.” Sima You Yue was a little rueful when she saw his gaze and said to comfort him.
“Young Miss, should we exterminate them?” Feng Xiang asked.
Sima You Yue looked at Xuan Qiu He before turning to regard the people around them. She sighed, “If they are willing to let us go, then let’s forget it.”
“Young Miss, you’re going to let it go just like that?” Feng Xiang looked at Sima You Yue with puzzlement.
Based on what she understood of her, You Yue was not a person who would just let others bully her. Was she actually going to let things go just like that?
Sima You Yue didn’t answer her, instead, she turned to Xuan Qiu Fu Xi and asked, “Patriarch Xuan Qiu, what do you say?”
What did he have to say? What else could he say? He had never been so useless before!
It was at this moment that a silhouette appeared in front of Xuan Qiu Fu Xi. The moment he appeared, the Xuan Qiu Clan bowed towards him, and respectfully addressed him as Ancestor.
The Ancestor of the Xuan Qiu Clan lightly glanced at Xuan Qiu Fu Xi and he felt like his whole body had been suppressed.
“Ancestor.” Xuan Qiu Fu Xi knew that the elder was infuriated.
“You have completely disgraced the Xuan Qiu Clan! Since you have already forgotten the meaning of integrity and honor, I believe that we should have a new Patriarch.” The ancestor scolded them.
“Ancestor, quell your anger!” The Xuan Qiu Clansmen knelt down, terrified by what he said.
The Xuan Qiu Ancestor did not care about them as he cupped his fists in salute to Sima You Yue, saying, “Young Friend You Yue, the Xuan Qiu Clan was in the wrong for this matter, please do not be angered. The divine medicine is rightfully yours, also, we will give you compensatory gifts in apology.”
Sima You Yue pursed her lips. The moment he arrived, he had berated Xuan Qiu Fu Xi before turning around to apologise to her. It was clear that he didn’t want her to pursue this matter. Although he apologised, his sincerity was lacking!
She couldn’t be bothered with his ramblings. Apart from Xuan Qiu He, she cared not for a single person in the Xuan Qiu Clan.
“So you’re saying that you will not pursue this matter? So we can leave?”
“As long as you don’t pursue this matter.” Ancestor Xuan Qiu said.
“Aunt Xiang, let’s go.” Sima You Yue didn’t want to remain here at all.
“Wait.” Ancestor Xuan Qiu spoke out to stop her, “You must be tired from the long night, why don’t you head back first and rest? Why don’t you leave after we have prepared the compensatory gifts?”
“Forget about the compensatory gifts.” Sima You Yue siad, “You don’t have to prepare those things either. In any case, we can no longer be friends. It would disgust me instead if I accepted them.”
“Young Friend You Yue, look, isn’t it better to squash an enmity than keep it alive? You and He’er are friends, and we have already admitted our wrongs. Could you not let this matter go?”
“I can’t.” Sima You Yue rejected their good intentions, “I can forget about pursuing the matter today, but that doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. If not for Aunt Feng and the others, I’m afraid that it would have been a completely different story? I let you go today completely on account of Big Brother Feng. As for everything else, don’t ask for too much. Aunt Feng, let’s go.”
If she accepted their things today, that would indicate that she did not hold this matter to heart and that the two clans would be able to continue being friends. It was a pity that she didn’t have that good of a heart.
Ancestor Xuan Qiu looked at Xuan Qiu He, hoping that he would say something. However, Xuan Qiu He lowered his head, ignoring it.
Feng Xiang directly cut a portal through space and took Sima You Yue and the others away. They left the Xuan Qiu Clansmen behind with the wasted land.
Ancestor Xuan Qiu initially wanted to call out to them, but when he saw Feng Xiang directly cut a portal through space, he could only watch blankly as he left.
This was the space that the first ancestor of the Xuan Qiu Clan had carved out. It was different from outside, but she actually managed to tear it open just like that.
The divine clan, they were truly powerful!
The golden sunlight lowered on them. It was obviously the color of hope, but now, the Xuan Qiu Clansmen felt like they had fallen into an icehouse.
“Ancestor…” There was someone who could no longer bear the strange silence and called out.
Ancestor Xuan Qiu turned around and looked at the ground of people kneeling on the ground and he said helplessly, “Open the family hall and evoke the family laws. Take Xuan Qiu Fu Xi there.”
The family hall contained the memorial tablets of their ancestors, and some of the ancestors would leave behind some divine senses in there. If nothing major happened, they wouldn’t open the family hall. They thought about how he had initially spoken about changing the patriarch, and everyone was flustered.
The Patriarch had yet to die, but he was going to replace him. This was something that had never happened before!
“Ancestor, the Patriarch did it for the interests of the clan, please reconsider!’
“Ancestor, Please reconsider!”
“For the interests of the clan? If he was protecting the clan’s interests, he shouldn’t have gone against Sima You Yue! Take him down!” Ancestor Xuan Qiu icily ordered. A few guards appeared from nowhere and took Xuan Qiu Fu Xi to the family hall.
