Chapter 1715: Who is he?
“Is that so? Then I will wait.” The soft voice carried over. After hearing his voice, one would be able to feel the warm smile of the person outside.
Sima You Yue did her best to control herself, only then did she manage to stop herself from turning back for a look.
Qiu Chi kept the box away before telling those outside, “Let him enter!”
Then, a tall and straight silhouette walked in. Sima You Yue turned around to look, and actually saw Wu Lingyu’s familiar face!
He had returned? Why didn’t he contact her?
She stared directly at him, wanting to read something from his expression, but he didn’t even spare her a glance.
“Greetings, Palace Master.” Wu Lingyu bowed lightly to him.
“Lingyu, what brings you here today?” Qiu Chi asked.
“It’s about the gathering. I feel that there are some things we need to discuss.” Wu Lingyu said.
“Since I’ve handed it to you, you don’t need my opinion on the details. You can make the decisions.” Qiu Chi said.
“Indeed, but I still feel that there are some things that would be better to let you know about.” Wu Lingyu said.
“Say it, then.”
Wu Lingyu told him about the preparations of the gathering, and Sima You Yue stared at him the entire time, until Qiu Chi had realised it as well.
“Han Yue, what are you looking at?” Qiu Chi asked.
Wu Lingyu looked over as well.
It was as if Sima You Yue had ascertained something as she laughed, saying, “Others told me that the Holy Son is handsome beyond compare. There are still others who say that a man who is focused on work is the most appealing, so I was captivated by Holy Son.”
Natural and unrestrained without the slightest hint of shame. It was as if the one who was staring intently at him wasn’t her at all.
Wu Lingyu glanced at her and the corner of his lips hooked onto a light smile, “Thank you, Holy Daughter, for your high praise.”
“I was merely pointing out the facts.” After speaking, Sima You Yue did not look at him again as she cast her gaze to Qiu Chi instead.
After a short moment, Sima You Yue and Wu Lingyu walked out together. When they arrived outside, when nobody was around, Wu Lingyu spoke, “Initially, the Holy Son and Holy Daughter were supposed to do it together. Initially, I was the one doing it, but since you have returned, you can come and help me!”
Sima You Yue cast him a light gaze, “Since Pavilion Master has said that you are to take complete responsibility, Great Holy Son, you can take responsibility to the end!’
After speaking, she walked off without even looking back.
Wu Lingyu watched her leave and he muttered, “Interesting, interesting.”
“What’s interesting? Who’s interesting?” A fiery red silhouette appeared in front of him, “Are you stealing glances at other women behind my back again?”
“I just met an interesting person, that’s all.” Wu Lingyu said.
“Are you talking about that woman? Has she caught your fancy?” The red robed lady pursed her lips, “That is very dangerous!”
“You’re thinking too much.” Wu LIngyu patted the lady on the head before leaving.
The red robed lady gave a dissatisfied huff as he left, then smiled as she looked at Sima You Yue’s silhouette.
As for Sima YoU Yue, she did not return to Zong Zheng Han Yue’s pavilion. Instead, after leaving the main hall, she entered a palace by the side.
“Great Holy Daughter.” The guards bowed to her, but they were actually blocking her path.
“I want to meet the Vice Palace Master, please notify him.” Sima You Yue said to the guard.
The guard cast her a suspicious glance, but he still turned around and entered.
“Zong Zheng Han Yue wants to meet me?” Tang Yun was a little puzzled. It didn’t seem like he was too familiar with this Zong Zheng Han Yue, right?
No, it was more accurate to say that Zong Zheng Han Yue knew that he didn’t like her.
She had never come to see him before, so why had she come here today?
“I’m not meeting her. Tell her that I’m busy.” Tang Yun didn’t want to meet her, so he rejected her directly.
The guard left, but returned a short while later, saying, “Vice Palace Master, Holy Daughter said that she was reminiscing about the time you met outside Fair Eastern City. if you don’t meet her, you will be struck by lightning. She said that you would definitely meet her if she said this.”
Tang Yun was stunned, then he said to the guard, “Invite her in.”
The guard went out with the order and quickly returned with Sima You Yue. Tang Yun waved his hands, dismissing the people beside him.
“You really are bold, you actually dare to sneak in here.” He looked at Sima You Yue, attempting to figure out how she managed to make herself look like Han Yue, “I heard that your Sima Clan has a spirit skill that allows you to fuse yourself, did you actually fuse with Zong Zheng Han Yue?”
“I have a contracted beast who can disguise himself.” Sima You Yue found a seat and sat down.
“How did you end up infiltrating this place?” Tang Yun asked.
Sima You Yue explained the story to him simply before asking, “What’s up with that fake Holy Son? Where’s Lingyu? Has he returned?”
“How do you know that the fake one isn’t him?” Tang Yun asked.
“Although he looks exactly like Lingyu, and his actions are even very similar, he merely looks similar at a glance. I know that he is a fake.” Sima You Yue Said.
“You don’t resemble your original self at all, it’s not strange that he wouldn’t be able to recognise you.” Tang Yun said, “If he was loving to you, you would probably be exposed.”
“It’s not the way he looks at me, but the way he looks at others.” Sima You Yue siad, “Say it, who is that person?”
“Do you think that I would know?”
“If you don’t know, then who would?” Sima You Yue looked at him, “That person is from the devil clan too?”
“No, but he obeys Lingyu.” Tang Yun said, “Do you know that Lingyu has a body-double?”
“Is that him?”
“Then where is he?”
“Still in the Devil Realm.”
“How is the Devil Realm like now? It’s been so many years, but he still can’t deal with that Devil King?”
“The situation in the Devil Realm has always been complex.” Tang Yun said, “The Devil King has ruled the Devil Realm for a few tens of thousands of years. Generation after generation, you can imagine just how much his powers have grown. As for Lingyu, even if some of the later generations of some clans are willing to follow him, to face that kind of colossal monster…”
There was no need to finish his sentence. Sima You Yue understood what he meant. She didn’t need to guess much to know how bad his situation was.
“Is there anything I can do for him?” She rubbed the space in between her eyebrows, her heart anxious.
“The biggest help you can be to him is to be okay.” Tang Yun said, “It’s complicated over there. You cannot think about going over.”
“I know, I’m not strong enough yet. I won’t go and cause trouble for him.” Sima You Yue said.
“That’s good then.” Tang Yun knew that she wasn’t a person who acted without thinking, “Now that you mention it, when are you leaving?”
“I remember that Lingyu said you were investigating those black robed men?”
“Yes, but it has been so many years without any result.” Tang Yun shrugged. He was able to ascertain now that there was no denying the link between that at the Sage Pavilion.
“I initially came here to investigate the black robed men, but isn’t it going to be the opening of the alliance gathering? I’ll wait till this situation is over before looking at how things unfold.” Sima You Yue stood up, “I’ll leave the black robed men to you. I’m thinking that, with these, you should be able to reap some results. I’m going to head back first, let’s link up again if anything happens.”
