Chapter 1771: Preparing to return
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
This time, they all thought it was done by an enemy of the region, a city or a family clan, but they never expected that it was actually someone sent by Ghost Concubine.
Mei Ying was not from Ghost Concubine’s faction, and since she was not used by her, she was a natural target that the Ghost Concubine wanted to get rid of as well. If he couldn’t be touched, then simply touch those around him instead. Not to mention, he had a daughter who looked so similar to Yu Ke Luo, so it was natural to start from him.
This was mixed with political factors, which complicated things even more.
Especially more so when Ghost Concubine not only failed this time round, but the people who had been sent were all killed. It must have attracted the attention of Ghost Concubine, and more people will be sent over the next round.
Therefore, even if she stays with Murong Hui, she will face many dangers.
“I’m not afraid, I have my Father by my side.” Sima You Yue smiled.
Murong Hui also had some guesses in his heart on why she did not leave. There were dangers on both sides. Compared with her own embarrassing status, it was better to continue to use her other identity as Murong Xi.
“In this case, from now on, we are a pair of father and daughter who depend on each other.” He said with emotion.
“I will need to rely on Father’s protection from now on.”
The two looked at each other and smiled, and a subtle affection between each other began to brew.
“How did you and the two Masters meet? If it weren’t for them this time, we still don’t know what the outcome will be.”
“I met before in the human world. Di Zhe is my cousin and he has a good relationship with my mother. I met him in the Immortal Land and he dotes on me very much. Because Mo Yu liked tea, he pestered me during that time. We spent the time discussing the art of tea, and that’s how we became acquainted.” Sima You Yue said.
“Now that they know your identity, I don’t have to worry that much.” Murong Hui felt that the pressure was really great before, and he was afraid that something would happen to her. Now that Di Zhe and Mo Yu were blocking them, it was a lot easier.
At least, their strength was not comparable to him.
“Father, with Xi’er’s identity, I am safer. You don’t have to worry so much, I will work hard to cultivate my strength and I will save my mother and protect you!” Sima You Yue said with determination.
“What! You are going to…” Murong Hui exclaimed, finally restraining himself from continuing on.
Sima You Yue nodded, “My mother is suppressed in the Abyss of Hell. As her daughter, I can’t just watch her suffer. I’ve always wanted to go when I was in the human world. Now that I’m in the Ghost Realm, it’s even more impossible to give up.”
“Father, don’t worry, I won’t act impulsively. I wouldn’t do stupid things without any strength.” Sima You Yue smiled and assured him. “You don’t need to think of me as my mother’s daughter. Just treat me as Xi’er. As for my identity, I don’t think it will cause any trouble during this short period.”
“Alright. I’ll try my best to calm myself down.” Murong Hui said, “If you have nothing to do, clean up, and when the new City Lord comes over, we will leave here.”
“Are we heading back to the duchy?”
“Yes. The things here are almost done. There are city competitions and region competitions happening soon and they all need arrangements to preside over them.” Murong Hui replied.
What he didn’t say was that Mei Ying also sent a message over, asking him to go back, and someone else will sent to take over the matters of the Atavistic Orchid Mountain. If Sima You Yue knew, she would probably have told him that the treasure had already been obtained by her.
“How long would it take?” She asked.
“He should arrive in about ten days. Then it’ll take a few more days to do the handover so I’m guessing that we should be able to leave in about half a month’s time.”
“So fast?!” Sima You Yue was a little surprised, even if he wanted to go back, he shouldn’t be so fast, right?
“There are some other things that need to be settled as well.” Murong Hui didn’t intend to say more, it seemed that it should be a secret. Seeing the steward coming in, she said: “Get things ready, we may be leaving in advance.”
He then left with the steward.
Sima You Yue watched them leave, then poured herself more tea and slowly appreciated it.
Because they were about to leave, the entire City Lord Manor had recently become lively, and there was an endless stream of people coming, but they were all looking for Murong Hui. Sima You Yue spent the time cultivating in her own courtyard.
She was now mainly cultivating the Soul Refining Technique and condensing her own soul body. Only when the soul body was properly cultivated could she then unlock the seal and receive the power of the ancestor’s seal.
Ten days later, Ting Shan knocked on the door, announcing that Xiao Ruo Bai and Gongzi Yuan had come. She then stopped cultivating, opened the door and went out.
Xiao Ruo Bai and Gongzi Yuan were waiting for her and they were stunned when they saw Sima You Yue.
“We haven’t seen each other for ten days, why do I feel that there’s something very different about you?” Xiao Ruo Bai said in surprise.
“Is there something different?” Sima You Yue looked down at herself, “There’s nothing different!”
In fact, she knows that her body looked more real and had a breath of life, not just the body that was condensed by the ancestor.
This was all the credit of the rigorous cultivation that she had been immersed in.
“Why are you two here today?” She changed the subject, not letting them pursue the matter any further.
“We are here to bid our farewell.” Gongzi Yuan said in a dejected tone.
“Farewell? Are you leaving?” Sima You Yue was a little surprised, “Aren’t you still investigating things about Atavistic Orchid Mountain?”
“In fact, our two families told us to go back a long time ago. We have to start to prepare for the region competition.” Xiao Ruo Bai said, “Fortunately, we delayed for a while, otherwise we won’t get the chance to know you.”
The Youth Exchange just ended and there would be a city competition held next year, and a region competition the year after next. As the genius descendants of the distinguished family clans, they naturally had to go back early to prepare for it.
“Then we won’t see each other until next year.” Sima You Yue said.
“I’m fine, I’m just going back to the duchy, and when you go back, we can meet again.” Xiao Ruo Bai said.
“You are also going back? Then we will be able to meet soon.” Sima You Yue smiled.
“Are you going back too?” Xiao Ruo Bai was taken aback, and then reacted with excitement all over her face, “That’s right, your Father is the Duke, he must go back to preside over it. When are you leaving?”
“My Father will only be ready in a couple of days.”
“I originally planned to leave after saying goodbye to you. Since you want to go back, I will go with you.” Xiao Ruo Bai said, “I just don’t know if it will be convenient.”
“Since we are all going back to the same place, it should be nothing. Ting Shan, please inform Father and check if it’s possible?” Sima You Yue relayed.
“Yes, Miss.” Ting Shan, who was guarding the door, left, and returned soon, saying that Murong Hui had agreed.
“Then it’s settled. We will go with you. Just let us know when you are going to leave. We are ready to leave at any time.” Xiao Ruo Bai said with a smile.
“It’s so nice, you can be together. I have to go on the road all alone.” Gongzi Yuan sighed and lamented.
“Little Yuan, you have to buck up, and let’s see if you can beat me in the region competition next year!”
“Don’t worry, I will make you lose with admiration!”
Sima You Yue laughed and said nothing. At this time, they did not expect that the most impressive person at that time would be her!
