Chapter 1816: Uncle
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
Sima You Yue didn’t know about these things, and continued to lead those people to stroll along the stores selling underworld artifacts. As she expected, those stores did not contain any Spatial Divine Artifact.
The Spatial Divine Artifact was just too rare. No matter who obtained it, they would not reveal it. It was just like the Spirit Pagoda. Only a handful of people would know about it.
They did this all the way till evening, where she also led her group back to the inn. Before she entered, she noticed the guards standing outside watching her anxiously.
“Young Miss, you’re finally back.” Murong Lin came out from inside the inn and said anxiously when he saw her.
“Uncle Lin, what happened?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Young Miss, the Envoy is here.”
“Envoy?” Sima You Yue blinked in confusion, “Who is that? How did this person scare you like this?”
Murong Lin only now remembered that she didn’t know about it, so he explained, “The Envoy is your mother’s older brother. He’s your Uncle. He is an important Envoy.”
“My Uncle? What is he doing here?” Sima You Yue asked with confusion.
They were just talking about him this morning, and he turned up at night. He couldn’t have come to expose her lie, right?
“Master Envoy said that he happens to have something to do in Great Yu City and knew that you came here, so he decided to come and take a look at you.
Sima You Yue pursed her lips. The reason he knew that she had come here could not possibly be because she mentioned him this morning, right?
“About that, didn’t Father say that he had never met us since Mother died? Why would he come now? I don’t get it.” Sima You Yue pursed her lips.
“No matter what you say, you should hurry and enter.” Murong Lin said, “Your Father won’t be able to hold on much longer.”
“Is Father afraid of Uncle?”
“No matter what, he is his wife’s older brother, isn’t he?” Murong Lin smiled, “You should hurry and go in.”
“Then I’ll go and save Father.” Sima You Yue nodded as she entered the inn with large strides.
When she went to the little courtyard at the back, she saw a few common faces. They were probably the Envoy’s guards.
She entered the inn and saw Murong Hui sitting at the main seat with a black robed male and a pink clad male sitting on his left and right.
“Father.” Sima You Yue bowed to Murong Hui before standing where she was, looking at the two strangers.
“Xi’er, why haven’t you greeted your Uncle?” The man clad in pink said.
Sima You Yue glanced at him before bowing to the man dressed in black, addressing him as her Uncle.
“Didn’t you not meet her before? How did she know that you were her Uncle?” The pink dressed man asked.
“Ask her.” Yu Xi said.
The man dressed in pink looked at Sima You yue as if he had been cheated, waiting for her to give him an answer.
Sima You Yue raised her eyebrows in response, “My Father is so handsome and my mother is so gentle. There’s no way she would have an older brother as flashy as you.”
“Pfft- You called me flashy?” The pink dressed man hopped up from his seat, rather incensed by Sima You Yue’s words.
“You’re a person dressed in powder pink. If you’re not flashy, then what are you?” Sima You Yue said very candidly.
“You- you… how is wearing pink flashy? It’s clearly youthful!’
Sima You Yue glanced at him sideways, “Every part of it.”
This was the first time that someone had called Yu Xi flashy, and he felt like it wasn’t too bad. He nodded his head in agreement, “This description isn’t too bad. You’re rather intelligent yourself, recognising the right person.”
“Thank you, Uncle, for your high praise.” Sima You Yue smiled at him, “Uncle, I wonder what you have come here for today? Have you come to reminisce with Father?”
“There’s nothing your Father and I have to catch up on.” Yu Xi stared at him, “I was in the underworld artifact store when I heard you say that I gave you a Crystal Dragon Card? I didn’t come here for much, I just wanted to ask when this happened. I have no impression of it.”
“Cough cough-” Sima You Yue silently muttered that he had really come here because of that. However, she didn’t expect that he would actually hear her.
“Mm?” Yu Xi leaned forwards slowly, watching her.
Sima You Yue looked all around, but she didn’t answer his question. Instead, she said, “Since Uncle was there, why didn’t you come and help me out! That Young Master from the He Clan had gone too far!”
“You are not me, so how did you know that I didn’t help you?” Yu Xi asked in reply.
“Eh? Uncle, what did you do?” Sima You Yue knew that something was up when she heard what he said.
“Nothing much, your Uncle just beat up that man called He Shun, and probably broke a few of his bones and legs.” The pink dressed man said.
“Hello Uncle, who are you?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Me? My name is Lang Yu. I am like your Uncle, I am also an Envoy.” Lang Yu introduced himself, “You can call me Uncle Lang.”
“Uncle Lang…” Sima You Yue pursed her lips. Not only did he dress flashily, even his name was femine.
“Xi’er, did someone bully you?” Murong Hui asked.
“It’s no big deal. That man just wanted to snatch the sword that Fang Ying Han had set his sights on. Then, I snatched it back with my money. In the end, the one who was bullied was that man, not me. You don’t have to worry! Sima You Yue walked over and stood beside him, supporting his shoulder.
“Of course. When did I ever lie to you?”
“That’s not for certain.” Lang Yu said, “This He Clan holds quite a bit of power in the Great Yu City. Now that you’ve set yourself against them, they will definitely cause trouble for you here!”
“Didn’t Uncle already help me to clean up the mess?” Sima You Yue smiled gratefully at Yu Xi, “Since Uncle intervened, there should be no problem.”
“You have a lot of faith in him!” Lang Yu sneered.
“Of course, he is my Uncle after all.” Sima You Yue believed in Yu Xi’s power. Otherwise, Murong Lin and the others would not be so anxious.
As for Yu Xi, when he heard what she said, he pursed his lips, “Am I really your Uncle?”
Sima You Yue’s heart skipped a beat as she said, “Of course. Right, Father?”
“It’s true. You just have to see how similar she looks to Jing Hua.” Murong Hui thought that it was because it was Yu Xi’s first time meeting her, so he said these words.
“Who are you? What relationship do you have with Di Zhe?” Yu Xi’s pressure was locked onto Sima You Yue and she immediately felt like she couldn’t breathe.
“Brother-in-law, what are you doing?” Murong Hui stood up and stood in front of Sima You Yue, blocking that pressure for her.
“I merely wanted to ascertain just who dares to pretend to be Jing Hua’s daughter! Di Zhe actually sent such a similar person over, he must have some secret motive.” Yu Xi looked at Murong Hui, “And you. You’re my younger sister’s husband. Why are you helping a fake Xi’er deceive me?”
“I…” Murong Hui wanted to deny it, but when he saw how angry Yu Xi was, he knew that they had been seen through.
“Honestly?” Lang Yu seemed to have known about it long ago as well, as he didn’t look surprised at this scene at all.
Yu Xi glared at the both of them, “This is your last chance. Why are you pretending to be Jing Hua’s child? Why are you helping her? Where is Jing Hua’s real child? Speak. Otherwise, you will die.. You may choose for yourselves.”
