Chapter 1626: Caught in the act, being suspected

Translator: Misty Cloud Translations  Editor: Misty Cloud Translations

Han Miao Shuang agreed when she thought about it.

If they did not have power, casually doing good deeds might bring them destruction anytime.

However, if they did it under the circumstance that they were powerful, even if they were really careless and encountered some bad people, it would not bring them too much danger.

“Just now, the others from the Mo Clan didn’t say anything either when they heard about it.”

“When we meet them later, we should give them a word of thanks.” Sima You Yue said.

It wasn’t that they had no choice but to stay in the inn, if they really couldn’t find any inn, they could just stay in the Little Realm. However, it was out of the goodness of their heart that they let them stay here, so they still had to thank them.

Sima Liu Xuan and the others knew this well. Although they heard some commotion later on, they went to give their thanks to the Mo Clan.

Sima You Yue knew that they had gone, so she didn’t have to bother with this. There were still two generations above her, so she didn’t have to appear.

However, although they kept them, the other party did not pay much attention to them. Everyone just did what they were supposed to do later on and Sima You Yue didn’t see the young masters of the Mo Clan much.

However, during this period of time, Sima You Yue had a clearer sense of this Crimson Pearl Convention.

The Crimson Pearl Convention was divided into three portions. One was alchemy, one was medical arts and another was poison. Sima You Yue didn’t think that they would even include a portion on poisons, and didn’t look favourably on it like the outsiders did.

There was still one month to go before the convention started, so Sima You Yue was not anxious. She wandered around outside with Han Miao Shuang and the others, wanting to see if she could find out some information about Xu Jin and the others.

Initially, she thought that the previous two Crimson Pearl Conventions were not held here, so she might not be able to get any information about Xu JIn. However, it actually brought her a nice surprise.

“Do you guys know Xu Jin and Ge Lang? The two who came out at the top of the Crimson Pearl Convention the last time in Black Tortoise.”

“How could I not? I heard that the two of them were really powerful to the point where the people from our island couldn’t even compete.”

“These kinds of idiots, are they able to win even in this kind of place? In the end, they offended the Wu Clan for no reason.”

“The Wu Clan initially thought that they would be able to win first place, but they won it in the end, so they started a feud. Those two outsiders, tsk tsk…”

“No way, right? I heard the Wu Clan came to look for them after, wanting them to stay behind as guests. However, didn’t they disagree and chose to leave? It didn’t seem like the Wu Clan did anything to them.”

“Did they really leave? It wasn’t a diversion or anything?”

“Did they go to the Black Tortoise Hao Clan?”

“Why would you say that?’

“I heard that the Hao Clan’s alchemy and medical arts have grown quite a bit. It has the same style as the two of them.”

“No way, right? The Hao Clan is one of the largest clans in Black Tortoise City. Why would they invite two outsiders? In any case, if that were true, why didn’t others not get a single bit of information?”

“That’s true.”

Inside the private room, Sima You Yue and her other three fellow disciples exchanged glances and noted the Wu Clan and Hao Clan in their hearts.

After those outside spoke of this, they didn’t mention Xu Jin and the others anymore. They changed the topic and spoke on other things related to the Crimson Pearl Convention.

Sima You Yue and the others stayed in the tea house until those outside and left but did not glean any more useful information. They had no choice but to return.

That night, Sima You Yue also received news that Tao Yi Xuan had sent her.

Sima You Yue sensed some commotion outside her room and ran outside. After turning a few roads, she finally found someone dressed completely in dark clothes.

“Young Miss You Yue.” The person cupped his fist in salute to Sima You Yue.

“Are you one of Tao Yi Xuan’s men?” She asked.

“I am. Young Master wanted me to send Young Miss You Yue some items.” The black robed man replied.

“What items?”

The black robed man did not reply as he took out a letter and tossed it at her.

Sima You yue caught it and that person seized the opportunity to slip away. Before he left, he even reminded her to watch her back.

Sima You Yue was stunned. On the way here, she ascertained that there was nobody following behind her. How could someone have tailed her?

However, when she returned home, she did see a white robed man from afar.

Sima You Yue recognised that person. He was a young master from the Mo Clan.

They looked each other in the eye, but it was not awkward.

Sima You Yue walked over and bowed to the young master from the Mo Clan, saying, “Young Master Mo, what are you doing here?”

“I heard some commotion so I came out to see what the matter was.” Young Master Mo said, “Is Young Miss You Yue well acquainted with the Tao Clan?”

Sima You Yue knew why he had asked her this. Thinking about it, it was because the Young Miss of the Mo Clan had gotten them to stay, and he was afraid that they were making use of Mo Xue Wu’s kindness to harm them.

It was said that the young master of the Hao Clan pampered her a lot.

She initially thought that she would feel it beneath her to explain, but she didn’t know why, she thought of Sima You Ming and the others, who were extremely protective over her.

She tossed the letter in her hand over to him.

The letter hadn’t been opened yet, so Sima You Yue didn’t look at it yet. Young Master Mo hesitated for a moment before opening it. After reading it, he handed it back to her rather apologetically.

The letter only contained information that Tao Yi Xuan had obtained regarding Xu Jin and the others. There was nothing like what he guessed.

“My sincerest apologies.” He apologised for reading the letter as well as for the suspicions he held against her.

Sima You Yue took the letter and wasn’t angry. She smiled, “Young Miss Xue Wu has a few good older brothers. I have a few of my own, so I can understand Young Master Mo’s intentions and thoughts.”

When she said this, the relationship between the both of them improved. They walked back together.

“You came to this island, the Lost Place, to look for your Master and Teacher?” Mo Xue Yang asked.

“That’s right.” Sima You Yue nodded, “They came in first in the Crimson Pearl Convention for the portions on alchemy and medical arts. Young Master Mo, did you know about it?”

“Xu Jin and Ge Lang?” Mo Xue Yang was rather confused.

The letter wrote about her master and teacher, so it didn’t mention their names.

“That’s right, you know it as well?” Sima You Yue looked at him, her eyes hopeful.

If he knew anything, it might be able to give her a lead.

However, he shook his head, “I didn’t participate the last time. I only heard of their names.”

“I see.” Sima You Yue was a little disappointed. It seems like she had to begin investigating from what she obtained today.

“However, I noticed that the letter mentioned the Hao Clan. If you went against them, you have to be extremely careful.” Mo Xue Yang said.


“The Hao Clan is the largest clan in Black Tortoise City, but their methods are… not worthy of praise. They just happen to be very powerful as well, so you must be careful.” Mo Xue Yang reminded her.

“I got it, thank you for your reminder. If we really have to face them, I will be careful.” Sima You Yue said with a nod.

They returned to the inn and happened to bump into Sima Liu Xuan and the others who had come out to look for her.

“You Yue, are you alright?” Although Sima Liu Xuan was looking at Sima You Yue, his eyes were trained on Mo Xue Yang who was standing by the side.
