Chapter 1618: Tao Yi Xuan cannot understand

Little Lucky left happily. Before Little Roar left, he secretly transmitted a message to her and asked her why she wanted to do that?

He knew, You Yue would not be so bored as to do something as annoying and ball-breaking as bothering with someone else’s issue.

Oh, no, she had no balls, then she probably was going to do something like that.

Sima You Yue pursed her lips, but she knew that Little Roar was still rather reliable when the crux came. As such, she told him, “It’s not that I want to poke my nose into her business, but the Shrine Maiden has a relationship with the Tao Clan. If she wants to help the Tao Clan or anything like that, it would be rather difficult for us to move. If she isn’t around, we wouldn’t need to worry about this.”

“No wonder. Then Little Lucky and I will take her out and walk around. We’ll return once things are about done.” Little Roar said.

“Alright, once you’re done, I’ll cook you a huge feast when you return!”

“I’ll remember that. You’d better not back out!” Little Roar said as he cut off their connection.

Sima You Yue stopped smiling. This guy’s personality didn’t change no matter how many years had passed.

Time had passed and the situation had changed, but someone was still able to stay the same. To her, this was a kind of consolation.

And so, even if her spirit beasts matured and became steady, only Little Roar always seemed so indecent but she didn’t say anything to him. With her around, he just had to be happy always.

She walked out from her own house and went to Tao Yi Xuan’s room. He was lying on the bed and his eyes were staring straight at the roof.

“What? Why do you look so down?” She walked over and took his wrist, examining him.

“It turns out that in this kind of clan, relationships are so fragile it’s pathetic.” Tao Yi Xuan came back to his senses and his initial emotions were gone. Sima You Yue could sense that something in him seemed to have changed.

“You’re saying that you heard everything.” Sima You Yue kept her hands away, “You’re recovering well. You should be able to get out of bed tomorrow.”

Tao Yi Xuan looked at her, “Didn’t you want me to listen to it?”

Sima You Yue pursed her lips, not denying it. “It’s better for you to know the truth early on.”

“I know.” Tao Yi Xuan stared at the ceiling again, “Actually, I should have known. He never treated me with any fatherly affection. Any use that I was to him was long since exhausted since he sat on the seat as the Patriarch. That he was able to put up with me for four hundred years is already something that didn’t come by easily.”

“I remember. You said that your father was not able to procreate due to a few reasons, right?” Sima You Yue asked.

“That’s right. Why do you ask this?” Tao Yi Xuan asked.

“The Matriarch is pregnant. It’s said that she initially invited a divine doctor to treat your father, but the weird thing is that that divine doctor disappeared after treating your father. He didn’t remain in the clan.” Sima You Yue siad.

“What?” Tao Yi Xuan exclaimed softly, “Haha, the Patriarch believed her?”

He couldn’t even call him father anymore and just addressed him as Patriarch. It seemed like the very last shred of familiar relations between father and son had disappeared completely.

“He naturally believed her. He even cherished her in hundreds of ways.” Sima You Yue said, “It sounds like he even sympathises with you.”

“Sympathy? I don’t need it.” Tao Yi Xuan said, “In the past, there were some things I couldn’t look past. Now, I finally see it and it’s not a big deal anymore. I just feel like it’s unfair for my mother. She saved him and gave him her purity and bore a son for him. In the end, she even threw her life away for him. But what happened in the end? We ended up being a walking target.”

“What do you plan to do next?” Sima You Yue asked, “Our deal is just to send you to the position of Young Master, it doesn’t involve dealing with your father.”

“I know.” Tao Yi Xuan said, “That is why I do not request too much from you. However, If I am able to become the Patriarch, I will have access to even more resources and I will be better able to help you locate your Master and Teacher.”

“And so?”

“I merely wish for you to ensure my safety.” Tao Yi Xuan said.

Sima You Yue shrugged, “What difference is there?”

“Of course. If I were merely to take the position of Young Master, it would be a lot less difficult. If I want to overthrow him and assume the position of Patriarch, it will be a lot more difficult. It will also be a lot more dangerous. In the same way, the things you will have to do will become even more dangerous.”

“Is there anything you haven’t told me?” Sima You Yue crossed her arms over her chest, looking him dead in the eye. “You’re very confident. So, you have something you haven’t yet told me.”

“Haha, you even realised this.” Tao Yi Xuan said, “Many years ago, I already sensed the danger. That is why I have been collecting some materials. As long as I make it known to the masses, even the position of Patriarch will become unstable.”

“Even if you overthrow him, there are many people who are able to assume that position. Do you think you will be able to succeed?” Sima You Yue said.

“I have my own arrangements.” Tao Yi Xuan said, “I initially planned to drag him down with me when I died, but I didn’t think that I would be able to use this one day.”

“I actually can’t look down on you.” Sima You Yue looked at him deeply, “If not because your father backstabbed you, you would not have landed up like this, would you?”

For a young child who had such a difficult life to have soundlessly grasped solid evidence meant that she had actually been underestimating him all this time!

Tao Yi Xuan returned her look, “Relax, I will not act against you.”

“I don’t care whether or not you will act against you!” Sima You Yue said, “In any case, I won’t be staying here for long and don’t have any conflict of interest with you. If you really want to act against me…”

She didn’t finish speaking and gave him a pointed look as she turned around to leave.

“Since you said that, does that mean our new deal has been established?”

Sima You Yue just walked to the door when she heard what he said. She waved her hand and walked out with large strides.

Tao Yi Xuan smiled. Her meaning was obvious. He knew her background, so would he dare touch her?

Whether he dared to or not, was going to or not, was willing to or not. There was a huge difference in them all.

On the second day, Tao Yi Xuan got out of bed. After his strength and body had recovered, he wanted to leave but he was pulled down by Sima You Yue and Great Master Ji.

“Just based on your current appearance, people will find out once you walk out that door. You won’t even need ten minutes before you’re captured.” Great Master Ji stabbed his weak point without hesitation.

Tao Yi Xuan remained standing where he was. His hand clenched then relaxed. After taking a few deep breaths, he finally calmed down.

“It’s not like you can’t go look for your foster father.” Sima You Yue said, “But what will you do after you find him? The sky is still bright, are you really going to confront him directly?”

“But if I don’t go see him, I won’t be able to let it go.” Tao Yi Xuan said.

“So what about this? You just have to see him right? It’s just that you first have to change the way you look.” Sima You Yue examined him, “I think you won’t be able to do something like this.”

Tao Yi Xuan initially felt curious as to how she changed the way she looked. If she wanted him to change his look so thoroughly, that would definitely be impossible.

“Then we can only use the second method.”

“What method?” Great Master Ji asked.

“Tie him up and bring him over. I’m guessing that this shouldn’t be a problem for Great Master Ji at all, right?”

Great Master Ji: …
