No matter how you said it, if Patriarch Tao had to choose between Tao Yi Xuan and the person behind this, Patriarch Tao chose the latter.
Although he didn’t attack him with his own hands, the damage was serious for Tao Yi Xuan.
Sima You Yue turned her head and took a glance at his room. He should have heard what they said, but no one would know what he thought about it.
It was better to give him some space.
“I wonder why the Patriarch came for the antidote.” Great Master Ji continued, “I think it’s to destroy the person and remove any traces.”
“Why don’t you think that it’s for Tao Yi Xuan?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Because I told him back then that if he wanted to treat the poison, it would be for the best to prepare two more pain relief pills. Otherwise, the person who was poisoned would be unable to bear it. He said that he’d understood, but he didn’t ask me for anything else except that he took the antidote and left.”
“It’s not that serious to destroy the dead and remove all the traces, right? Aren’t you here still?” Sima You Yue stared at him, “There’s hope as long as you’re alive.”
Great Master Ji laughed as he shook his head, “You don’t know about my custom. I don’t usually refine pills for others.”
As he spoke, he lifted his head and shot a glare at her. He wouldn’t have refined it for her if she didn’t coerce and threatened him to do it.
Sima You Yue understood what he meant from the look in his eyes. She touched her nose and laughed cheekily, “I’m one of the unusual cases. I know I offended you. Here, let me offer a cup of wine to you as an apology, alright?”
“Do you always do such things? Giving a sweet after a slap?” Great Master Ji held up a cup, cheered with hers and finished it in one mouthful.
“Hehe, not always, occasionally maybe.” Sima You Yue continued, “I have no choice but to do that.”
“You said you had a deal with Young Master, what is it?”
Sima You Yue hesitated for a while and told him about looking for someone.
“So you came to the island of Lost Place to look for your Master and Teacher?” Great Master Ji said.
“Mm, they came here because of me. Now that they’re missing, how can I let it go just like that?” Sima You Yue huffed a long sigh, “I’m hoping that they aren’t suffering here.”
“Your Master got himself a good disciple.” Great Master Ji started to envy them.
The sincerity itself was touching enough regardless of whether she could find them or not. He looked at the little child wandering around the courtyard full of medicinal ingredients and wondered how much he meant to him?
Right at this moment, someone knocked on the door anxiously and interrupted the mood as they were talking.
The child went to open the door and asked the guy outside, “Can I help you?”
“Is Great Master Ji in? Patriarch is asking him to go over immediately!” The guy outside said anxiously.
“My Master is busy!” The child rejected as he saw that his Master didn’t reply. He closed the door after he spoke.
“Young Master, don’t close the door yet. This is an order from the Patriarch. Second Master is in trouble. The Patriarch asked him to go over immediately to have a look.”
“What does it have to do with my Master when the Second Master is in trouble? If you don’t leave, I’m going to release poison.” The child threatened.
“Second Master is really in trouble. Please tell Great Master Ji. I came here with the Patriarch’s token.” The guard’s voice was very anxious, it seemed like the Second Master was in a bad state.
Initially, Sima You Yue’s heart skipped a beat when she heard about Second Master. She didn’t expect him to come back alive, why didn’t that lady kill him straight away?
Seeing how anxious this guard was, she wondered how Second Master Tao was doing.
Thinking of this, she stood up before Great Master Ji, bowed and said, “Lord, since the Second Master is in trouble and Patriarch sent someone to invite you over. Why don’t we go?”
After she spoke, the guard then knew that Great Master Ji was in the courtyard. It was just that he couldn’t see him in that position.
“Great Master Ji, Patriarch said that you must go over.” He shouted towards the courtyard.
Great Master Ji frowned seeing Sima You Yue acting like a servant.
——You want to go and watch a show?
Sima You Yue smiled happily.
——What was so bad about seeing some drama? It was better than cooping herself up here.
“Since that’s the case, then we shall go and take a look.” Great Master Ji brought Sima You Yue out and told the child, “You have to take good care of the house. Our courtyard is mostly filled up with things that are poisonous, don’t let anyone in.”
“Master, I understand.” The child answered obediently.
Sima You Yue saw the look on his face and remembered how his eyes looked earlier on. She thought to herself that he would definitely be fiercer than Shi Qian Zhi when he grew up.
The guard outside the courtyard was shocked when he saw the servant behind Great Master Ji.
Wasn’t Great Master Ji always alone and didn’t converse with girls? Since when did he have a servant?
“Didn’t you say that it’s urgent? Why are you standing here?” Great Master Ji said in a low voice.
“Yes, yes, yes. Great Master Ji, please follow me.”
The guard brought them to Second Master Tao’s residence and they only got to know of his situation on the way there.
“You’re saying that Second Master Tao was poisoned after he went to Rabbit Ear Mountain and sexually assaulted that old monster?” Sima You Yue cried out in shock.
She wanted to use that old monster to get Second Master Tao’s attention so that he could get into an accident after he went to Rabbit Ear Mountain. Who knew that guy had the guts to actually sexually assault that old monster!
“Second Master was lucky enough to escape from that person.” Great Master Ji knew that the girl clad fully in white was scarily powerful.
“Second Master didn’t escape, he was released by that girl.” The guard continued, “That girl said she would let him off today for the sake of the connection between the Tao Clan and her. But death is an easy escape, living hell is hard to escape. Second Master fainted after she waved her hand. The guard then brought the Second Master back. Patriarch also invited the physician to come over and take a look, he said he had been poisoned. They couldn’t do anything, so Patriarch invited Great Master Ji over to take a look.”
Sima You Yue rubbed her chin. She didn’t expect that there was a connection between the Tao Clan and her. Although the Second Master didn’t lose his life this time, it was the same as being in a coma.
Very quickly, a group of people arrived at Second Master Tao’s courtyard and the guard brought them into Second Master Tao’s house. At the same time, a person walked out from the house while the guards quickly bowed in greeting, “Patriarch, Great Master Ji is here.”
Sima You Yue lifted her head up and saw a powerful-looking man. His facial features weren’t similar to Tao Yi Xuan so she guessed that he looked more like his Mother.
Patriarch Tao quickly bowed in greeting upon seeing Great Master Ji, “Great Master Ji, quickly take a look at my Second Little Brother. What kind of poison is he inflicted with? Why is he in a coma?”
“Patriarch, calm down, I’ll take a good look at Second Master since I’m here.” Great Master Ji said as he was going into the house.
Sima You Yue followed behind him but was stopped by Patriarch Tao.
“Who are you?”
