“Why is it in the city? Of course it’s related to the cruelty of the Yuan Clan.” Liang Chu Xing ridiculed, “It is said that people often die in their manor and in order to punish those who died, a special place was set up to pile the corpses. Over time, it became a mass grave.”
This Yuan Clan turned out to be such a cruel family, it’s no wonder that the young ladies raised were all arrogant masters!
“We are in the east of the city, and the mass grave is in the west of the city. If we want to get the body back, I am afraid that it will take a lot of effort.” Sima You Yue said, “However, this is not the main thing. I am afraid that the Yuan Clan will send someone to keep watch there, ready to catch you.”
Liang Chu Xing also felt that this was very likely, “If it weren’t for attracting me, how could news of Yun Lan’s death come out? But I guess they only knew that someone had discovered the mausoleum with Yun Lan, but they didn’t know it was me. Otherwise, Yuan Li Li and others would not kill me when they were in Fortune City.”
“It should be. But it may also be known here that it is you, but Yuan Li Li and others outside don’t know.” Sima You Yue said, “No matter what the reason is, you’d better not appear as you are.”
“Speaking of which, how long can your Transformation Pill last?” Liang Chu Xing asked.
“One lasts for ten days hence if you eat one before you change back to your original appearance, you will be able to maintain your current appearance. If you revert back to your original appearance and eat another one after, you will be transformed into a different appearance.”
“I can’t look like this again?”
“The appearance is random, of course you can’t.” Sima You Yue said.
“But now everyone knows that I am your guard. If I go out and get arrested, won’t you also be implicated?” Liang Chu Xing still had a bit of conscience and didn’t intend to pull her into the water.
“I will check the situation there first. If someone lies in ambush, I will ask someone to lead them away. Then you will collect her body. Of course, if you have a better plan, we can also discuss it.”
“Your plan is pretty good, I’ll check it out first to see if there is an ambush there.” Liang Chu Xing said and he was about to leave.
“Alright, you can stay here. You are such a big target, you’ll most probably be discovered before you get close.” Sima You Yue called him back.
“Don’t tell me that you are going instead?” Liang Chu Xing said, but didn’t plan to let her go. Her strength seems to be lower than his, and she is more likely to be caught if she goes.
Sima You Yue called out some scarlet bees, told them a few words before she let them leave.
“Sit down and wait for news.”
“Are they reliable?” Liang Chu Xing hadn’t seen a small spirit beast spy on news before, but such was much better than a person who was easier to spot. Once someone was found near the mass grave, the Yuan Clan would guess that he was coming. It would be even more difficult to find Yun Lan’s corpse in this way.
“Don’t worry, they are definitely more reliable than you.” Sima You Yue said disdainfully.
Dare to doubt her scarlet bees? On this continent, the news that her scarlet bees inquired about could be said that if it was second, so no one would dare to say that theirs was first!
Liang Chu Xing saw her confidence and sat back, waiting for the news with her.
He was very anxious. After staying in the house for a while, he couldn’t stay still, and went to the courtyard again. Sima You Yue just glanced at him, letting him walk around in the courtyard.
A few hours later, the scarlet bees finally sent a message back. Although it seems as though there was no one lying in wait in the mass grave, there were in fact, many masters hidden not far away. In a rough estimation, there should be more than a dozen.
And since Yun Lan’s body had been put aside for a few days,it has decomposed somewhat, but it can still be seen how much she suffered while she was alive.
Liang Chu Xing sneered after hearing this, “This Yuan Clan really looks up to me.”
“Since there is an ambush there, then let’s proceed according to our plan.” Sima You Yue said, “We will go by later at night.”
“No need. I’ll go by myself at night.” Liang Chu Xing said, “If you go along as well, I still have to take care of you. It’ll be even more dangerous.”
“You can do it alone?” Sima You Yue said.
“Today is the sixth day after Yun Lan’s death. I can’t let her stay in the mass grave. So no matter what, I will go and bring her body back tonight.” Liang Chu Xing clasped his hands tightly and tried to suppress his anger.
“Just like you are now, are you sure you are not going to send yourself to death? Out of a dozen masters, how many can you deal with on your own?”
“Since I have agreed to your request before that I will help you retrieve her corpse, I will definitely do it. I will find a way to distract those people, and you will be responsible for collecting her corpse.” Sima You Yue was very confident and did not seem to have any concern on the part that there were more than a dozen masters lying in ambush.
Liang Chu Xing looked at the confidence that she was exuding and wanted to believe her. But he still shook his head, “Yun Lan and you have never known each other. With her character, she won’t let people take risks for her. I can’t let you face those people.”
“Who said I am going personally?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Did you bring someone with you?”
Sima You Yue knew that Liang Chu Xing would not accept her plan if she didn’t fully explain her plan. Although she didn’t like this Flower Picking Thief very much, she had to make sure that Yun Lan’s body was collected. If something happened to Liang Chu Xing, no one would collect her body.
“Mi Er, come out.” She called.
A faint black mist overflowed from the back of her hand and turned into a reduced version of her.
“This is my contract beast. It will lead those people away when the time comes. Mi Er, let him see how good you are. Well, you can hurt him but don’t let him be disabled. There is still a task tonight.” Sima You Yue ordered.
Mi Er nodded and attacked Liang Chu Xing in an instant. Liang Chu Xing didn’t feel the fluctuation of Mi Er’s spiritual power at first, and he underestimated the enemy. He felt that Sima You Yue’s contract beast would not be too powerful. The result was that he was beaten by Mi Er till he couldn’t get up.
“Didn’t I ask you to have a sense of measure?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Taking a pill will not affect the work at night.” Mi Er said disdainfully.
“That’s also a waste of my medicine!” Sima You Yue knocked on his head, “It’s shameful to waste, don’t you know?”
Mi Er thought about it seriously and nodded, “You are right, I will pay attention next time. But this person is really seeking a beating. With such delicate skin and tender meat, but still picking on this and that?”
Liang Chu Xing lying on the ground: “…”
Sima You Yue stuffed a pill into his mouth. Because the time was tight, she used a better healing pill.
Liang Chu Xing could instantly feel the changes in his body, only to realize that the last pill was really far from the one used this time.
After Sima You Yue fed the pill, she went to bed to sleep and rest, preparing to act at night, and someone was left on the ground by her again.
Liang Chu Xing was already in tears at this time, why did he always sleep on the floor after meeting her?!
