Second Child Liang?
Sima You Yue smirked. Thinking of the presence of outsiders, she implicitly picked up the teacup and concealed her smile with the lid of the cup.
“Second Child Liang, why did you bring a stranger to me? You know the rules here, don’t let me throw you out!” The woman saw Sima You Yue, stared at Liang Chu Xing, and walked to the main seat and sat down.
“Xuan Xuan, there is someone else present, don’t embarrass me like that and give me some face.” Liang Chu Xing winked at Chu Xuan.
“Second Child Liang, since when do you even have this thing called ‘face’? Do you even know what embarrassment is?” Chu Xuan added on in a low voice, “If you want face, instead of being a proper Young Master of the Liang Family, you actually ran away to become a scumbag Flower Picking Thief? It’s also a miracle on it’s own that the Liang Family did not kick you out.”
“Xuan Xuan…” Liang Chu Xing called her this time round with a very helpless tone.
“Well, I won’t expose all your smelly history.” Chu Xuan waved her hand, “Let’s talk, what are you doing here today?”
“Let me introduce to you, this is Chu Xuan and this is Sima You Yue. She was the one who helped me lead the Yuan Clan’s people who were waiting in ambush away so that I could collect Yun Lan’s body.” Liang Chu Xing introduced the two of them to each other.
“Sima You Yue?” Chu Xuan’s gaze was a bit gloomy. Even if she looked at Sima You Yue without emotion, she felt some pressure, a feeling of being stared at by a poisonous snake.
“You Yue has seen Senior Chu.” Sima You Yue got up and greeted Chu Xuan as a junior respectfully.
“I’ve heard of you, your reputation has been very loud recently.” Chu Xuan said, “What are you looking for me for?”
“Why didn’t you ask if I was looking for you instead?” Liang Chu Xing muttered by the side.
“What can an infatuated Flower Picking Thief look for me for? The most is to just order some poison to harm others. But would such a little thing be worth waiting for me for a few hours?” Chu Xuan rolled her eyes at him.
Liang Chu Xing pursed his lips and said nothing.
Sima You Yue smiled when she saw the manner the two of them interacted. Only people with good relationships could poke others’ scars so casually.
“Senior Chu, this is indeed the case. Liang Chu Xing said that you have a lot of research on poison, so I would like to consult you on something.”
“What is it?”
“I know a kind of poison, it…” Sima You Yue mentioned the symptoms again, and asked: “I want to ask if Senior knows what kind of poison it is.”
“The kind of poison you are talking about is called Drunk Poison Flower.” Chu Xuan replied, “However, I never knew that a person who’s been inflicted with this poison could still survive to even give birth to a child. Are you the baby back then?”
Sima You Yue was silent for a while, nodded and asked, “Senior, do you know who developed this poison?”
“Of course I know, this is the poison I developed. It’s unique, one and only. You can’t find it elsewhere.” Chu Xuan’s words shocked them.
“What? This is your poison? Xuan Xuan, you shouldn’t be the one who poisoned You Yue’s Mother?” Liang Chu Xing exclaimed.
“Second Child Liang, when will you ever use that little brain in that head of yours? I really wonder how you escaped the Yuan Clan for two years?” Chu Xuan’s gaze towards him was full of contempt, as if saying how unlucky she was to know him.
“Although this poison was developed by the Senior, it was not used by Senior.” Sima You Yue said, “I would like to ask Senior, who did you give this poison to 60 or 70 years ago?”
“This poison is not a good poison. After refining that one batch, I never made any more of it. It was only given to one person.” Chu Xuan said.
“So, it’s easy to know who was the person who administered the poison!” Liang Chu Xing interrupted again, spouting some useless nonsense.
Sima You Yue looked at Chu Xuan expectantly, but she didn’t continue her words.
“Xuan Xuan, don’t keep us in suspense, come on, tell us quickly!” Liang Chu Xing urged.
“Why are you in a hurry?” Chu Xuan roared at him, “If I want to say it, I’ll say it. If I don’t want to say it, I won’t say it. What are you talking so much nonsense here!”
“Xuan Xuan…” Someone who was scolded yelled aggrievedly.
Sima You Yue smiled, “Senior, what do you want? If I can do it, I will do my best.”
Chu Xuan glanced at her with satisfaction, and said quietly, “Actually, my condition is very simple. I never thought that this poison could be passed on to babies, so I want you to tell me the symptoms and also how you dispelled the poison. As long as you tell me these, I will tell you who I gave this poison to.”
“You want to know how to dispel the poison?” Sima You Yue was startled.
Such an easy condition?
But when Chu Xuan saw her in a daze, she thought that she was unwilling. Also, most people were reluctant to tell others about their own methods.
“If you don’t want to, then I won’t…”
“Senior, I am willing to tell you.” Sima You Yue smiled.
“Then you just…”
“I was in a daze just now because I didn’t expect the conditions of Senior to be so simple.” Sima You Yue thought for a while, but didn’t say the latter sentence.
She didn’t say, Liang Chu Xing said before that you are a bit eccentric and hard to get along with. She was afraid that Liang Chu Xing would be beaten by Chu Xuan after she said this.
She then explained her symptoms of poisoning and the method of how she dispelled it.
Chu Xuan took a paper and took down notes, and exclaimed, “Who was the one who saved you in the first place?”
“That’s a person in the lower continent. As for who it is, it is not convenient to say.” Sima You Yue said, “This does not affect our agreement, right?”
“This doesn’t affect it, I’m just a little curious. Who actually came up with such a method? Since it is from the lower continent, then forget it.” Chu Xuan looked at the prescription and her eyes couldn’t move away. “It’s because your Mother is a member of the Ghost Clan, so she did not die from the poison and even managed to give birth to you. I didn’t expect that this poison would have such a result when it meets the Ghost Clan.”
“Since I have said this, can you tell me who you gave this poison to? Is it the Yuan Clan?” Sima You Yue asked.
Chu Xuan lifted her head up, “Yuan Clan? Those Yuan Clan members with their tails up to the sky won’t come to me to buy poison. It’s Xu Mo Li.”
“Xu Mo Li?” Sima You Yue was a little surprised, took out the information that Xuan Yuan Pavilion gave her, and read the contents about Xu Mo Li again.
“Xu Mo Li is a girl from the Xu Clan. She has a lively and friendly personality, and she dislikes Yuan Yu Qiu, who is cold and arrogant. It is Xu Mo Li who poisoned your Mother?” Liang Chu Xing seemed to be pretty knowledgeable about those women. At this time, Sima You Yue felt that he finally resembled more to a Flower Picking Thief.
“I don’t know.” Sima You Yue shook her head, “Although she bought this poison, she may not have used it. But this is a clue. However, what I find strange is that Xu Mo Li and my Mother haven’t been in contact, but Xuan Yuan Pavilion has listed her as one of the suspects, although it is the last one. Why is this so?”
“Getting the answer is not easy.”
“Do you have a way?”
“Didn’t you get this information from Xuan Yuan Pavilion? Then just go to Xuan Yuan Pavilion and ask, don’t you know?”
“No, this matter is very confidential, not many people know about it.” Sima You Yue said.
“Since you think she is suspicious, just ask her directly.” Chu Xuan said, “Xu Mo Li came to Kangmar City two days ago.”
