Chapter 1702: You’re not that kind of person
They took a look around but didn’t find any clues. That person who killed them was straightforward. Even if there were some clues, it would have been found out by those who came before them.
“Seems like we won’t find anything. We can’t bury one by one when there’s so many of them. Let’s just cremate them altogether.” Sima You Yue said.
“Young Miss, their uniforms are of the Azure Dragon Clan’s, I think it’s better to inform the Azure Dragon Clan to collect their bodies.” An Lei warned.
Afterall, she was familiar with this and knew more about what to do.
“Alright.” Sima You Yue continued, “Let the scarlet bees inform them, we’ll be on our way.”
“Aren’t you going to investigate the Devil Sword anymore?” An Lei questioned.
“We are completely lacking in information about the Devil Sword and this happened ten over days ago. We don’t have a clue at all, and it won’t help if we just stay here.” Sima You Yue continued, “Although I really want to solve this problem, I won’t dive into it blindly.”
“You’re right. We can continue investigating if we come across it. If we insist and dive into it blindly, it will be a waste of time.” Sima Liu Xuan agreed with her.
Previously he was worried that she would waste time on an unsolvable problem, but now he was relieved.
“Someone is here.” “Sima You Yue continued, “Since we’re outnumbered, it’s better to hide aside and avoid confrontation.”
She brought Sima Liu Xuan and An Lei into the Spirit Pagoda as she spoke and paid close attention to the situation outside through Spirit Pagoda.
“Young Miss, it’s a member of the Azure Dragon Clan.” An Lei warned as she saw them flying over.
Sima You Yue noticed that their clothes were the same as those on the floor, long green robes with hair tied high and a purple gold belt which made them look alert.
“Big Senior Brother, it’s actually our brothers who went missing.”
“Who killed them?!”
The eyes of the Azure Dragon Clan members filled with anger and reddened as they saw how their clan’s brothers and sisters’ bodies filled the mountain.
“It seems like the person who sent us the information was right, they were killed by the Sky Splitter Devil Sword.” The person who was addressed as Big Senior Brother investigated the bodies and realised their bodies were different from other bodies.
He looked around as he frowned, “This is strange.”
A lady walked to his side and said, “Is something wrong?”
“I felt someone’s aura when we came here. We came here so fast but they are already gone.” Big Senior Brother said.
“Is it an illusion?”
Big Senior Brother took a look around and confirmed there wasn’t anyone.
“Maybe. If not, they escaped.” He summoned the brothers beside him, “Check their token plate to see which level they belong to and bury them here after collating.”
“Yes, Big Senior Brother.”
Sima You Yue and the others were watching in Spirit Pagoda as they were searching the bodies and registering them. They were jotting down their identities and took out their items as they dug a huge hole and buried all the bodies together.
They left after they were done. An Lei said that they could get out as they were gone but Sima You Yue waited for a while longer.
A few minutes later, those people came back and looked at the empty mountain but Big Senior Brother’s frown hadn’t gone away.
“Why do I feel like someone is watching us? Am I really hallucinating?” He muttered as they left.
Sima You Yue waited for a while and came out from Spirit Pagoda after she made sure that they really left.
“That person is really sensitive.” Sima Liu Xuan sighed.
“I recognise that Big Senior Brother. He’s a core disciple of the Azure Dragon Clan, I heard that he is well gifted, meticulous and very strong, he’s being nurtured into becoming the next Patriarch.” An Lei said.
“Since they’ve already buried them, then we will wash our hands off this matter. Let’s go to the Eastern Lai Clan.”
After a long walk, they came to an Ocean Boundary. The Eastern Lai Clan was on an island in the middle of the Ocean Boundary.
An Lei brought them to a small town by the seaside, it seemed like an ordinary small town for the outsiders as it was filled with fishnets and marinated fish.
“This is the entrance to the Eastern Lai Clan?” Sima You Yue said curiously as she glanced at the small town.
Wasn’t this too different from the Xuan Qiu Clan and Northern Du Clan?
“Outsiders can only go in through the Transportation Array here.” An Lei continued, “But Eastern Lai Clan’s members wouldn’t. But if we go in like this, I’m afraid we’ll be killed as intruders before we even get close.”
“I really didn’t think that Eastern Lai Clan would hide behind an ordinary small town.” Sima You Yue sighed, “What should we do next?”
“Let’s find the Town Master and get in contact with him, they will start the Transportation Array for us after they agree.” An Lei said.
“You should know where the Transportation Array is, right? Why can’t we go by ourselves?” Sima You Yue asked.
“For the safety of the Clan, this Transportation Array is special, it can only be started with Town Master’s aura and spiritual energy. He’s like a key, only he can start it.” An Lei said.
“Nobody else can? What about the Eastern Lai Clan?”
“I told you earlier on, clan members won’t take this path.” An Lei said.
Alright, it was actually quite secure as, if they used a human as a key, no one could force through from here if the Town Master didn’t agree. It would be the same even if they killed him.
“Let’s go and find that Town Master.” Sima Liu Xuan said.
An Lei brought them to the Town Master’s house. The Town Master quickly came out from his house after receiving the news and personally welcomed them.
“Young Miss You Yue, please have a seat.” The Town Master brought them to the Hall happily and wasn’t surprised at their arrival.
“Thank you.” Sima You Yue and Sima Liu Xuan sat down with An Lei standing behind Sima You Yue.
“An Lei, seeing you like this now, you look more cheerful after following Young Miss You Yue.” The Town Master said as he smiled lightly.
“Young Miss is very good to me.” An Lei responded lightly.
The manner in which the Town Master spoke to her made it seem like they were very close, but An Lei’s attitude was very normal, it didn’t offend him nor did it look like they were close.
He didn’t show concern to her before, there was nothing much to talk about now.
“Town Master of Eastern Lai, we came here today for some matters and want to get into the Eastern Lai Clan. I wonder if you can help me to contact them?” Sima You Yue got right to the point.
“He he, the Clan already knows that Young Miss You Yue is here, so they’ve already sent orders that I bring you there directly without having to report if you want to get to the island.”
“Without reporting? They already knew we were coming?”
“They don’t know. They just said that if you’re coming, you can go over directly.”
“Aren’t you guys worried that I’ll harm you guys?”
“Ha ha, Patriarch told us that Young Miss You Yue isn’t that kind of person. Since you guys are in a rush, I’ll send you over now.”
