Chapter 1620: The crucial chess piece
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
The man furrowed his eyebrows.
Asking for directions? Directions to which place?
“No matter who you are, this is a place where our Ancestor is in seclusion. Hurry and retreat!” He ordered.
“How communicative.” Sima You Yue smiled, “If you weren’t afraid that I would cause a scene that would make the Ancestor come out of seclusion, would you speak so civilly to me?”
“What do you mean?”
“Exactly what I said. There’s no need for you to advise me to leave. I have come here today to meet the Ancestor. Let’s just act.” She was too lazy to waste words as she called out her beasts from the spirit pagoda.
At this time, a group of people flew down from the mountain. Sima You Yue didn’t think that they would actually have so many people lying in wait here. It seemed like these people were preventing others from getting close to the Ancestor to tell him any information.
It was no wonder Tao Yi Xuan’s men were all trapped in here. This ambush was one that they would not be able to cross without a bit of strength.
However, there were so many opponents. She was not anxious as she called out Sima Liu Xuan and the others.
She was the weakest of them all as they surrounded her in the centre, not allowing her to act. This made her feel rather helpless.
There was such a big commotion but the Ancestor couldn’t hear anything? Why did he not have a single bit of reaction?
The activity on this side was meticulously kept away from the public square. As for this side, they had no bandwidth to think about those things.
That was because, when the younger generation of the clan were competing, the young master who had betrayed them and went missing had returned.
He had not only returned, but he took out evidence that proved his innocence. He took out the evidence that he had obtained personally.
One of them included information that the Matriarch had conspired with outsiders to obtain the Tao Clan’s property. He even listed the names of many others in important positions.
The great assembly today was for the purpose of testing the younger generation of the clan, as well as for them to display their powers before the clan. Tao Yi Xuan had appeared in front of everyone and even brought along evidence, so it was obviously impossible even if they wanted to kill him.
Both sides were in a deadlock.
Sima You Yue looked at the sky. She had tarried here for too long. She looked towards the mountain peak and she slowly disappeared in midair, but not a single person on the battlefield noticed.
By the time she appeared again, she was on the other side of the mountain.
She looked at the barrier in front of her. It was no wonder the Ancestor didn’t hear such a huge commotion. It turned out that there was a barrier present.
If Little Roar was around, she would have directly called him out and fused with him. Then, it would be easy for her to enter the barrier. However, now that he wasn’t around, she couldn’t use this method. She thought for a while before finally calling forth her spirit energy and attacked the barrier.
The Ancestor, who was in his stone room in seclusion, naturally sensed that someone was attacking his barrier. His expression turned solemn and his eyes filled with rage.
He wanted to see just which child was so brazen!
“Tao Clan’s Ancestor, I heard that you were not in strict seclusion. In that case, you should be able to hear me right? If you take any longer to come out, Tao Yi Xuan is going to die!
Tao Clan’s Ancestor’s body that was initially as still as a boulder immediately stood up. Sima You Yue quickly saw the stone room open and a slender and tall man walked out from inside.
“Who are you?” Tao Clan’s Ancestor asked.
“Don’t bother about who I am for now, I am merely someone that Tao Yi Xuan has entrusted to come and meet you.” Sima You Yue stretched forth a hand and pointed at the public square, saying, “In order to see you, I used a lot of effort. My people wont’ be able to hold on much longer.
The Tao Clan Ancestor’s expression grew stern as he kept his barrier. With a flash, he flew into the air and yelled at those people, “Halt!”
The Tao Clansmen saw the Patriarch of the Tao Clan and couldn’t help but break out into cold sweat. They stopped involuntarily. As for the others, they saw Sima You Yue remain silently by his side without saying anything so they stopped as well.
The Tao Clan Ancestor saw the battle scene and understood at once. He was so enraged that his aura immediately burst forth, “You are all extremely bold!”
Sima You Yue felt his powerful aura and retreated backwards. She reminded him, “These people are just the small fries, you have the time to deal with them when you return. However, if you don’t make it there in time, Tao Yi Xuan might be dead by then.”
She was right because all of them heard sounds of battle coming from the public square.
With a wave of his long sleeves those people from the Tao Clan were rooted where they were.
When Sima You Yue saw this move, her eyes widened and her mouth dropped open.
Too- too amazing!
Tao Clan’s Ancestor ignored her shocked look and directly flew towards the public square.
“You Yue, let’s go as well.” Han Miao Shuang said.
“Where to?” Sima You Yue was currently examining how the Tao Clan’s Ancestor had managed to paralyse these people and subconsciously asked.
“Take a look at the situation over where Tao Yi Xuan is!” Han Miao Shuang said, “Didn’t you say that you had to guarantee his safety? Aren’t you going to take a look?”
“Oh, his Ancestor has already gone, so what danger would there be? We’ve already done the dangerous work.” Sima You Yue said.
He had evidence in his hands and with the help of the Ancestor, as long as his evidence was solid enough, then the situation today was even more likely to go according to plan.
Compared to things over there, she was even more interested in what had happened here.
Han Miao Shuang watched as she circled around those people and pulled on her hand, saying, “You can examine these people once everything is over. Let’s head over there.”
Sima You Yue was dragged away and reluctantly followed after her. Before she left, she remembered to keep away her spirit beasts and egret clan elders.
When they arrived at the public square, the situation was almost at its end. No matter how exciting the battle was before, the moment the Ancestor acted, not a single person was able to run a single step.
It was only with this evidence that the Ancestor was able to appear.
This was the reason why Sima You Yue called the Tao Clan’s Ancestor for Tao Yi Xuan. If he had no evidence, then she would not have invited him but she would have thought of a way to ensure that he didn’t find out about what happened today.
“Evil creature, what are you doing? She is your mother! You dare to exterminate her? Your younger brother is still inside her!” Patriarch Tao’s roar was heard from far away, and they heard what he said even before they arrived in the plaza.
“Younger brother? I’m just afraid that Patriarch doesn’t really feel that he is my younger brother, but that he is your only son!” Tao Yi Xuan sneed, “What, do you think I spoke in error?”
“Unfilial son!” Patriarch Tao wanted to catch Tao Yi Xuan, but he was stopped by the person beside him.
“I hit the nail on the head?” Tao Yi Xuan avoided him, “I was inflicted with the Hundred Flora Worm poison and people chased after me trying to kill me. As my father, not only did you not look for me, but you even got rid of the antidote for my Hundred Flora Worm poison. Oh, no. I can’t say that you didn’t look for me because you sent the Tang Clan, and I was chased by the Tang Clansmen all the way to Rabbit Ear Mountain where I was almost killed. So it can be considered that you did find me.”
“Ss-” When everyone heard this, they couldn’t help but suck in a breath. A father chased his son trying to kill him? Was this something the head of a clan should have done?!
“What rubbish are you spouting?!”
“That someone who is able to move you and is able to take your token to Great Master Ji for the poison, apart from the one whom you sleep beside, who else could it be? You even protect that person when you know about their betrayal of the clan. Father, how will you give an account to our clansmen?” Tao Yi Xuan spoke each word clearly.
