Chapter 1611: Who can play with poisons better?

Translator: Misty Cloud Translations  Editor: Misty Cloud Translations


When Sima You Yue left the courtyard, she took on the appearance of a servant. She held onto a plate of spirit fruits and walked along the path that Tao Yi Xuan had told her about before. She headed towards the place where the poison master was at.

On the way there, she encountered a few patrols. Those people saw the spirit fruits in her hand and felt like their mouths were dry and stretched forth a hand, wanting to take those spirit fruits.

She took a step backward and bowed demurely, smiling, “Big Brothers, these spirit fruits have been requested for by Patriarch. This servant is to send them to Great Master Ji.”

The guard’s hand stopped in midair.

Who didn’t know that Great Master Ji liked spirit fruits? Who would dare touch his things? He would probably have the life to take it but not the life to eat it!

“Since it is for Great Master Ji, then hurry along!” The guard waved his hand to urge her along without the slightest suspicion.

“Thank you, Big Brother.” Sima You Yue stood up again as she left holding the spirit fruits.

After walking for half a day, Sima You Yue arrived at a remote courtyard. She thought about how Tao Yi Xuan said that Great Master Ji was antisocial and didn’t enjoy interacting with others but secretly wondered why there was a need to stay so far away?!

She knocked on the door of the courtyard and said, “Great Master Ji, this servant has delivered spirit fruits upon orders of the Patriarch.”

After a moment passed, the door of the courtyard opened as a little child stood behind the door. It looked at her with an icy expression.

“Master said that the spirit fruits for today have already been sent over. Why are they being sent again?” The child’s voice was immature, but his tone was unkind.”

“It’s like this. These fruits have just been offered from below, saying that they found them deep in the mountains. Patriarch felt that Great Master Ji has never eaten these before, so he got this servant to send them over now. If Great Master Ji finds them tasty, he will send more.” Sima You Yue invented a random excuse.

“Then give them to me.” The child said as he stretched forth a hand to take them.

Sima You Yue handed the fruits to him before saying, “Patriarch said that he has some things he wishes this servant to tell Great Master Ji.”

“Follow me, then.” The child turned around and Sima You Yue followed after, closing the door behind them.

Great Master Ji was researching some poison grass and was unable to extract the purest essence after trying a few times, irritating him. At this time, his little disciple brought a servant girl and walked in.

“What’s going on?” He asked solemnly.

“Great Master Ji.” Sima You Yue bowed demurely and said, “The people below have offered a fresh batch of spirit fruits and Patriarch has ordered this servant to send some over for you to try. He said that if you like them, he will get them to offer more.”

Great Master Ji saw the tray that his little disciple had placed on his tray. There were truly two spirit fruits that he had never eaten before. One of them was emerald green, the other was rosy. They looked juicy and sweet.

However, he was in an irritated state right now and was in no mood to eat fruits. He said with irritation, “I am not in any mood to eat right now. I will tell you once I have tried them, you may head down first.”

How could Sima You Yue be willing to leave? She lowered her head and said, “Great Master Ji, Patriarch said that he is awaiting your news. Great Master Ji, you should understand Patriarch’s mood.”

Great Master Ji knew that, whenever Patriarch sent him new types of fruits, he would get him to tell him how it was. If he found it pleasing, he would do his best to find them again.

He took a red spirit fruit. This spirit fruit was small and rosy, resembling a cherry. However, it was more fragrant than a peach. He placed it into his mouth. The pulp melted in his mouth, releasing a fragrance that radiated from his chest to his heart.

After eating it, he couldn’t stop all the way until it was completely gone. Only then did he stop.

“What fruit is this?” He asked.

“It’s called the Heartless Fruit.” Sima You Yue replied.

“Heartless Fruit?”

“Right, it has another name called the Life Seizing Fruit.”

“How could there be a spirit fruit with this name?!” He didn’t know why, but when he heard this name, hsi heart suddenly jumped.

“Of course there is, because I’m the one who gave it its name.” Sima You Yue smiled.

Great Master Ji felt like something was not right. He wanted to say something, but he suddenly felt a pain in his chest.

His body was weird!

He stepped forward and wanted to grab Sima You Yue, but she immediately appeared in another part of the room.

“Who are you?!” How could there be such an expert servant girl here, especially one who dared to do this to him!

Sima You Yue bowed demurely and said, “This servant is merely a little maid in this residence.”

“Hmph, how could I not know that there was a maid like you in this residence!” Great Master Ji said as he attacked Sima You Yue. However, she avoided him again.

“Great Master Ji, if I were you, I wouldn’t get angry for the time being and wouldn’t use my spirit energy.” Sima You Yue notified him.

Great Master Ji shot her an icy glare, as if he were a poisonous snake watching a prey that was doomed to death, an animal that filled him with rage.

He felt strengthless as he sat on the chair for a long while.

He was all too familiar with this feeling.

“You’ve poisoned me. How did you do it?” He immediately calmed down. The other party didn’t seem to have given him lethal poison and had remained here. It was obvious that there was something she wanted to say.

He didn’t think that he would ever make such a low-levelled mistake!

“You ate it on your own!” Sima You Yue said, beaming.

“I ate it? Why didn’t I taste any poison?” He didn’t believe it. He was a great master who specialised in poisons and poisons had nowhere to hide in front of him. There was no way he ate one.

It was the same even for those poisons that had no color or taste.

Sima You Yue smirked as she pulled a chair over and sat beside him. She said, “I didn’t say that the poison was tasteless and colorless!”


“I used a method for this poison that made it taste like the heartless fruit.”

Great Master Ji was stunned. She had made it taste like the heartless fruit. This was the first time he had eaten this type of spirit fruit and merely thought that it was the taste of the spirit fruit. Heh didn’t think that it concealed the poison.

The poison was on the outside of the spirit fruit, and he had eaten it just like that!

He never thought he would fall prey to this so easily!

“What do you want to do?” He asked.

“Great Master Ji, don’t you first want to see what kind of poison you’re inflicted with?” Sima You Yue asked.

“Hmph, since you don’t want to kill me immediately, I still have the time later on to research this. What I am more curious about is why you want to poison me?” Great Master Ji said confidently.

To cause him to lose strength and block his spirit energy and things like that, these were all games to him!

“I already said that Great Master Ji is proficient in poison, so it’s normal that you would think this way.” Sima You Yue leaned on the back of the chair, “However, I still feel like it would be better if you checked out what kind of poison you’re inflicted with.”

Great Master Ji saw that she was so confident and felt like she was too young and didn’t know him well, which was the only reason she felt like she could manipulate him.

However, since she had already said this, he had no qualms checking himself.

He didn’t expect that the moment he examined himself, his expression would immediately turn ugly as he exploded with fury.
