Chapter 1704: Ximen Li was captured

Sima You Yue knew that An Lei was relatively more wary against the eastern Lai Clan. This was something that had been ingrained into her bones since she was a child, and not something that would be changed just by following her for a few years.

“Relax.” She patted An Lei’s hand and suddenly understood why Aunty Feng and the others would pat her hands. “Relax, nobody will be able to bully you here.”

“Mm.” An Lei said this, but she was still heavily guarded.

“Don’t be afraid, my father and I are here!” Sima You Yue smiled towards her.

An Lei’s eyes immediately turned red. In the past, when she had been bullied, how much did she wish that someone would tell her: Don’t worry, I’m here.

Her life back then had been torturous, but nobody had ever said this to her. She didn’t think that, returning back here, she would be able to hear these very words.

“Young Miss…” She held onto Sima You Yue’s hands and choked up. She couldn’t say anything else.

“How old are you, you still have snot running from your nose from crying.” Sima You yue hooked her nose and teased.

“No I don’t! The wind is just too strong, so my eyes are just blurry.” An Lei said sheepishly.

Sima You Yue smiled and stopped teasing her.

Once the time came, one of the elders came to take them to the grave.

The entire process was simple. Sima You Yue and her father, along with An Lei, lit some incense for An Lei’s mother before the guards that the Eastern Lai Clan had brought over started to dig. They straightforwardly dug the coffin out.

An Lei walked over and supported the coffin with both hands as her tears fell gently.

“Mother, your daughter has come to take you with me.”

She cried for a long time before she finally kept the coffin into her interspatial ring and returned to Sima YoU Yue’s side.

“An Lei, what about your father?”

“There was once my father was out at sea, and he died there. That is why there is no remains.” An Lei wiped her tears away, “When mother was buried, my father’s remains were placed in as well, so it can be considered that they have been reunited. Right now, my family is back together again.”

Sima You Yue understood and said to the elder who came with her, “Elder, we have already retrieved the coffin and have to rush back to catch the auspicious hour to bury her. Can we trouble you to make things easy for us and send us out?”

“So quick? Patriarch has even said to let you remain on the island for a few more days. We have expanded quite a bit of effort to obtain some suitable land for you.” The elder said with a bit of surprise.

“We have calculated for the most auspicious time. Otherwise, it will be a long time before we can catch the next one. That is why time is rather tight.” Sima You Yue casually made up an excuse.

“Since that is the case, then we really cannot keep you. I will send you out now.” The elder was secretly happy after making the suggestion, and he couldn’t wait to send them off.

Once Sima You Yue and her group of three had left, everyone heaved a sigh of relief. They were finally able to rid themselves of this pestilence and it was great that no conflict had happened.

The guards over at that side didn’t think that she would return so quickly. They had not had the opportunity to notify the town master before Sima You Yue and the others left.

After retrieving her mother’s remains, An Lei had finally accomplished what she had always wanted to do. Her mood was pretty good throughout the journey.

“Young Miss, did you realise that the instant that the teleportation array activated, the expressions of those people were a sight to behold. Hehe, I’ve never seen them look like that before. It was as if they were looking at demons and were finally able to get rid of us and were celebrating.” An Lei said with a laugh.

“Is there anyone who describes themselves like you do?” Sima You Yue found it amusing as well. Because she had past experiences here, when she came, they all acted like they were facing a huge enemy. Now that she had left, they were finally able to heave a sigh of relief. “Now that you mention it, where do you plan to cremate your mother?”

An Lei shook her head, saying, “I don’t want to cremate her anymore. I’ll just take her with us. This way, no matter where I am, my family of three will always be together.”

She rubbed her interspatial ring. As long as she was still here, her family of three would be here.

“Yue’er, are we going to return now?” Sima Liu Xuan asked.

He did not forget that time where she was in danger, and had a feeling that he would lose her, one that was extremely strong. That was why he wanted to bring her home the moment this issue was settled.

His father and the rest had said before that her luck was too good, so she would have a great tribulation. Wu Lingyu had also said before that his luck was too good back then, so he had died young. When he thought of his premonition from before, his heart was flustered.

Sima You Yue realised that something was off about Sima Liu Xuan and asked, “Father, what’s wrong?”

“Nothing.” Sima Liu Xuan shook his head, “I’m just thinking about how there are some things in the clan that have to be done. If you are done, then we can head back.

Sima You Yue looked at him suspiciously and nodded at him in agreement. In any case, she really had nothing much to do. She could use this time to cultivate. Once she was stronger, she would be able to use the secret method that Mo Yu had given her to go to the ghost realm.

Actually, she had thought about going to the ghost realm via ghost city. However, she had asked Si Yue before, and Si Yue had told her that Ghost City not only had lightning calamities but other types of tribulations as well. If she wanted to head over there, even if she was able to avoid the lightning calamities, she would very likely die.

Also, if she went to ghost city but wasn’t strong enough, she would be killed very easily. That was why she had to cultivate diligently and become strong. Then she would use Mo Yu’s method for increased security.

Also, her strength was almost reaching her requirements. As long as she cultivated for a few years, she would be able to break through.

However, before she arrived home, she received Little Roar’s cry for help, saying that he and Ximen Li had been captured and were being brought into the inner regions.

The moment Sima You Yue heard this, her heart was flustered. However, she heard that those people didn’t plan to kill them yet, so she didn’t charge off in a rush.

“Father, Li’er and Little Roar have been captured. I have to go and rescue them. Why don’t you return home first?” Sima You Yue thought of how Sima Liu Xuan had told her that there were things to do in the clan, and wanted him to return home first

Sima Liu Xuan had met Ximen Li back at Ximen Feng’s wedding. He also knew how important she was to Sima You Yue, so she definitely had to recuse them. Returning home had always been an excuse, so how was he supposed to let her return home on her own.

“The issues in the clan can be delayed for a moment. I’ll go with you!”

“Alright then.”

The Sima Clan had a few enemies recently. She would be rather worried if she let him return home alone.

“Little Roar, where are you guys now?” Sima You yue contacted Little Roar.

“I don’t know! I only heard them say that it seems to be the Twentieth State.” Little Roar said, “Yue Yue, hurry and rescue me. Sobsobsob, I’m scared!”

Twentieth State. Sima You Yue ran through the information on the powers in the Twentieth State. She eliminated the powers who didn’t have any contact with her or Paramount Valley, then guessed who it was that captured Little Roar and the others.

However, no matter how she thought about it, she couldn’t figure out who in the

Twentieth State had a grudge with them.

“How is your situation now?” It seemed like she could only make her conjectures based on their surroundings.

“I’m still alright. Li’er has been poisoned and cannot use her spirit energy.” Little Roar replied, “Oh right, apart from us, there are many other women!”

“Many other women?”

“That’s right. They’re like Li’er. They’ve all been poisoned and have been trapped inside a courtyard. There are many experts here. They seem to be monitoring us.”
