Chapter 1669: The bird clan gets involved

Sima Zhi Yuan looked at the item inside and asked with surprise, “Child, where did you get this? It is the Hundred Changing Door’s lost treasure!”

“Lingyu gave it to me.” Sima You Yue siad, “I already gave a copy to the Hundred Changing Doors.”

“Then, if we use it, will they make trouble for us?”

“Probably not. This item was something that Lingyu originally found and I already gave them a copy so they probably shouldn’t make any trouble for us. We just have to make sure the others don’t spread this information.”

“Alright then. Men, come.” Sima Zhi Yuan shouted outside. A guard entered and he instructed him, “Go and invite Third Elder.”

The guard left after receiving the instruction and Sima You Yue stood up and said, “I’m going to take a look at our Clan’s protection array. I’ll see if I can do anything about it.”

“Wait a moment. Let Third Elder take you there. The protection array is so huge, it would be better if someone could take you there. Third Elder has always been in charge of matters concerning arrays, so he would be clearest on anything involving arrays.” Sima He Shun said.

“Alright then.” Sima You Yue sat back down.

When Third Elder came over and heard about the origins of the tablet rubbing that Sima Zhi Yuan told him about, he was incredibly surprised. He immediately wanted to take it and study it, but Sima Zhi Yuan got him to take Sima You Yue over to the protective array.

Although Sima You Yue was just a junior to him, everybody knew her standing in the clan. That was why, although his heart itched, he had no choice but to control it and take her over to the protective array.

He initially thought that he would just have to go through the motions. Although she was quite accomplished in the area of alchemy, she probably wasn’t as proficient with arrays. However, he didn’t expect that after she had understood the workings of the protective array, she merely made a few small changes to result in a huge boost in the quality of their protective array.

“Third Elder, does the outer clan also use this protective array?” Sima You Yue asked.

“That’s right. It’s just a smaller version.” The Third Elder only took it seriously now as he had a bit more respect for Sima You Yue.

“Then you should have understood what I did just now. Just send them the instructions and get them to strengthen their protective array as well.”


In order to make sure things went as planned, Third Elder brought the array masters from the clan over to take a look at the protective array. Then, he explained how Sima You Yue had changed it and got them to pass the message down to the outside clans after memorising it so that they could strengthen their protective arrays. It was only after those array masters returned that he gave them the array guide that Sima You Yue had given him and studied it together.

The rest of the days were relatively peaceful. The Sima Clan prepared one Sima Zhi Yuan’s one thousand and two hundredth birthday celebration and also invited a few relatively close people to participate.

However, the peace was broken before the celebration.

On this day, Sima You Yue was currently discussing something with Sima Liu Xuan about seeker spirits when An Lei came in from the outside. With a bow, she said, “Young Miss, something has happened.”

“What’s wrong?”

“I heard word outside and, of those people who have come to participate in the celebrations, quite a few have been attacked by some unknown people.” Fan Lei replied, “I heard that a few people even died.”

“Has the clan sent men to investigate?” Sima Liu Xuan asked.

“They have. However, we received the news pretty late, so the situation is still rather dire now.” An Lei answered.

“I’ll go and take a look.” Sima Liu Xuan nodded at Sima You Yue before getting up to leave.

Sima You Yue watched him leave before calling out a few scarlet bees. She got them to head over to where Sima Zhi Yuan was to investigate.

“Did you hear anything else?”

“No.” An Lei shook her head, “I immediately returned to tell Young Miss the news once I heard of it. Young Miss, do you think that this is done by the Northern Du Clan?”

“It’s not impossible. They have been quiet for such a long time. It’s possible that they will do something during this period of time.” Sima You Yue knocked on the table with one hand, “Since they acted against those people, it’s possible that they will attack other guests as well. It’s Great Grandfather’s celebration. If it’s ruined by those people, that will be troublesome.”

“Then, will Patriarch send men to escort the rest of the guests?” An Lei asked.

“Even if Great Grandfather sends men to escort the rest, they won’t be able to deal with everything. If the other party is acting against us, they would have made their preparations. We have to come up with another plan.” Sima You Yue fell silent. Then, after a moment, she said, “The scarlet bees have sent word that Great Grandfather and the others have already sent men to escort the others.”

“Then do we have to do anything else?” An Lei looked at Sima You Yue.

Sima You Yue thought about it and called out Little Roc, Halcyon and the others. She said, “Little Roc, you guys know what’s going on. I wish to ask you to send word to the various bird clans to seek assistance. Ask them to get involved and help if this kind of situation occurs. If necessary, it is also alright to release Crimson Flame’s aura.”

“No problem.” Little Roc nodded as he left with Halcyon.

Sima You Yue didn’t know how he would get in contact with the bird clan, but if they had the help of the bird clans on the way, it wouldn’t pose too much of a problem anymore.

Shortly after she sent out word, news returned again via Little Roc’s contract.

Another group of people had almost been assassinated on the way here, but Halcyon and the others happened to be nearby so they led a group of bird clansmen to rescue them.

The attacking power of the bird clans were strong. With their rescue, those people were relatively safe. They even managed to capture some enemies alive.

“Yue Yue, we sent those people that we protected over along with the enemies that we left alive. We’re going to check out other places now.” Little Roc finally said.

“You guys be careful. Aside from ensuring their safety, do your best to find out who’s behind this.” Sima You Yue instructed.

“Alright. Yue Yue, don’t worry. Great Grandfather’s celebration will go by smoothly.” Little Roc comforted her.

“Mm, I’ll have to trouble you guys.”

Very quickly, the people under the bird clan’s protection array. They didn’t encounter any more problems along the way and smoothly arrived at the Sima Clan.

Sima Zhi Yuan and the others only now knew that Sima You Yue had activated the bird clans. However, they were unable to come and look for her at this moment and had to hurriedly interrogate the people they captured to figure out who the mastermind behind this was.

Atr this moment, in another place, a few other groups had also encountered an assassination. Finally, it was a bird clan that appeared that foiled their plans. Finally, those people were also safely escorted by the bird clan to the Sima Clan.

The bird clan was leading the way for them. This was a high level of treatment that was previously rarely ever given. Those people didn’t think that after getting the huge shock, they would receive this kind of treatment. In their hearts, the discontentment at almost getting killed because of their relationship with the Sima Clan completely disappeared.

Just ask how many people were able to activate the bird clan? How many bird clans were there in the entire continent? That was how powerful the Sima Clan’s backers were!

When those who wanted to move against the Sima Clan heard news of the bird clan’s intervention, they had no choice but to give up on their later plan. If they had to battle with the bird clans without a secure outcome, they would suffer a double loss.

Inside Sima You Yue’s courtyard, An Lei rushed over and said to Sima You Yue, “Young Miss, the Patriarch has sent men over to invite you to go to him. He said that you should interrogate those people with him.”

“Let’s go. We’ll go and take a look to see just who the mastermind behind all this is.”
