Chapter 1651: Untitled
The little old man picked up the rubbing and was stunned.
“Why is this book with you?” The little old man asked.
“This was given to me when I was a child.” Sima You Yue said apologetically. Back then, Wu Lingyu investigated his ancestor. She couldn’t tell him that. “Big Wei and Little Wei wanted me to give it to you. Now I am returning it to you.”
“You know Big Wei and Little Wei?” The little old man had been imprisoned for so long. He didn’t know many things outside, nor did he understand her connection with Hundred Changing Doors.
“They used to stay in the Heavenly Sect for some time. I’m a student there.” Sima You Yue didn’t say anymore.
The little old man put away the rubbings. Hundred Changing Doors’ arrays were not as good as before. With this, they would be more perfect. This was also the current pursuit of Hundred Changing Doors.
He saluted Sima You Yue. “It’s not enough to say thanks for your kindness. If there’s any help you need, you can ask Hundred Changing Doors.”
Sima You Yue pulled him up and smiled. “If I need help, I won’t be courteous.”
With her words, the little old man left without worry. There were still some master and disciples left in the courtyard.
“Master, we should prepare to leave.” Sima You Yue suggested. “You have been missing for so long. Instructor Mao and Principal Fan are worried.
“Sure, I don’t want to stay on the island any longer.” Xu Jin felt depressed when he recalled those unpleasantries.
“Is Principal Yuan back in the sect?” Ge Lang asked.
Sima You Yue recalled that Yuan Shao Jie was not there.
“Isn’t Principal Yuan with you?” Su Xiao Xiao asked.
“No! Though we left the sect together, we separated later. When we arrived here, he said he had something to do.” Ge Lang and Xu Jin looked at each other. It was obvious they thought of something.
“Master, what happened to Principal Yuan?” Han Miao Shuang inquired.
“It’s not easy to explain.” Xu Jin replied. “With that old fellow’s personality, there shouldn’t be any problems.”
“True, otherwise, Instructor Mao and them would let us know since we came to find master. Since they didn’t say anything, Principal Yuan must have sent the news back.” Jiang Jun Xian deduced.
Sima You Yue felt the same, so they put Yuan Shao Jie at the back of their minds.
Since they made the decision to leave, everyone did not delay. No one wanted to stay behind to bid farewell. They went straight on board the ferry. Unexpectedly, a large ship appeared with Tuo Shao Gong and the shrine maiden on deck.
Sima You Yue glanced at Tuo Shao Gong and pursed her lips. “Are you here to be the boatsman again?”
“What, you don’t believe in my ability?” Tuo Shao Gong said with a drawn face.
Sima You Yue rolled her eyes. “It’s not that I don’t believe in your ability to row, but in your ability to deceive people. I don’t have many crystals for you anymore.”
“Hahaha——” Tuo Shao Gong chuckled. “I won’t charge your crystals this time.”
“Of course!” Tuo Shao Gong smiled. “Come on up. The other guy is sending other people. Now there’s only my boat available.”
Sima You Yue discovered that this ship was smaller than the previous one, but it also looked more delicate. When they were on aboard, Tuo Shao Gong ordered the boat to start.
“I thought you’re personally going to take the helm!” Sima You Yue pouted.
“Last time it was for fun, this time, I wanted to leave myself.” Tuo Shao Gong grunted. “You were by convenience.”
He laid on the rocking chair, resting his head on his hands. He was at leisure.
“No wonder you didn’t charge us.” Sima You Yue walked up to him and sat down on the deck.
“I charged very reasonably.” Tuo Shao Gong smiled.
“How reasonable, they aren’t even used.”
“It’s not used now, doesn’t mean it won’t be used in the future.”
“What do you mean?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Some things are not of face value. You will know how important the thing I gave you in the future.” Tuo Shao Gong finished and closed his eyes while basking in the sun.
Sima You Yue wanted to ask him what he meant by this and what he was hinting at. But when she saw how comfortable he was in the sun, she knew he wouldn’t say anything if she asked again.
Tuo Shao Gong didn’t say anything anymore even until they reached ashore. Tuo Shao Gong sent them off without saying anything, patted his butt and left.
Sima You Yue wanted to kick him so much. They actually know about each other; was it necessary to be so arrogant? Besides, didn’t he say he was going to travel outside? Why didn’t he disembark?
“How is this place ever going to change? I’m going to visit somewhere else. If we’re fated, we might meet again….”
Sima You Yue and the group stood on the shore. She found that the direction he was heading was not the direction he was returning to.
“What does he mean by this?” Han Miao Shuang asked.
Sima You Yue was also confused and shook her head. They left together.
Because the most urgent matters were resolved, she was relieved. She didn’t rush on the way. First, someone had sent a message to Instructor Mao and them. As the group went back, they enjoyed the scenery, chatted and relaxed on the way.
By the time they returned to the Sima Residence, half a year had passed. Everyone in Sima family was thrilled to see them return. Sima Qing stared at Sima You Yue and then nodded, “There was really nothing that could stop you.”
Sima You Yue rubbed her nose. Did her ancestor underestimate her?
“How long will you stay this time?” Sima Zhi Yuan asked.
“Just rest for a while.” Sima You Yue replied. “I have to accompany master and them back to the sect, and go to Paramount Valley. The marriage of Feng’er and Xiang Yi had been delayed for too long. They wanted me to come back before they married.”
“You have been running around for these things over the years. It’s okay to go out to relax.” Sima He Shun said. “But be careful.”
After returning to the family, she revitalized the family, healed Feng Ru Yan’s old illness, went to the ancient clan for the divine medicine for Sima Liu Xuan, and then went to the Lost Place to rescue her master. She had done most of the pressing matters in her heart. If there was anything she was worried about now, that was she hadn’t found her mother and their family hadn’t been reunited.
Well, although she was worried about Wu Lingyu’s side of things, she believed in his ability to resolve it.
In order to find her mother, she had to go to the Ghost Realm. With her current strength it was difficult to go. Was it really necessary to wait until she advanced?
She wanted to use Mo Yu’s method, but she was hesitant on whether to use it. What kind of situation would she face when she goes there? Was Di Zhe ready over there?
