Chapter 229: Sima Clan's ancestor
Everyone was stunned. Someone from Sima Lie's generation had pleaded for leniency but she had not let off Sima Yi all the same.
"You Yue…" Sima Qing voiced out, wanting to remind her to think things through carefully.
"To leave behind this kind of person who allowed one's younger generation to bully my Grandfather and Brothers to this state and wanted to kill us will have bad repercussions." Sima You Yue said, "Furthermore, the thing I can't stand the most is when someone bullies my family. Whoever bullies them must prepare for death!"
"No, no, I was wrong, I won't dare to bully you all in the future!" Sima Yi cried out with a pale face. However, Sima You Yue's gaze was still ruthless.
If he did not die today, he would definitely find an opportunity to exterminate them all in the future!
"Although your lips say that you are wrong, you have not rid yourself of the desire to murder in your heart. Halcyon, do it!" Sima You Yue ordered.
Halcyon looked at her then exerted abit of force, directly taking Sima Yi's life.
When the Sima Clansmen saw that she really killed Sima Yi, they were shocked and outraged.
The Sima Ancestor sighed, saying, "The few of you come over. This senior and you few little friends too."
"Halcyon, retract your aura." Sima You Yue said.
Halcyon retracted his aura and was the same as ever before, giving people an impenetrable feeling.
However, everyone knew that he was a Sacred Beast and did not dare to probe deeply.
Without the formless weight, everyone was able to stand upright and take deep breaths.
"You Lin, take men to clean up this area." Sima Lin ordered Sima You Lin, before turning to Sima Lie and saying, "Let's go."
Sima You Yue saw that Sima Lie's voice had been shaky since hearing the ancestor's voice, so she knew that he definitely really wanted to meet him. She carried him and asked as she walked with him, "Grandfather, who is the one who spoke just now?"
"That's my second grandfather. My grandfather's elder brother. He has always been very good to me. When I was very small, I remember him treating me with a lot of care." Sima Lie recalled, "At that time, when our branch had been arrested and tried to escape, we fell into an ambush. It was second grandfather who saved us and let us leave."
"That means that he can be considered our savior." Sima You Yue said.
"Second Grandfather rarely went outside , and also had a very good relationship with Grandfather and I. After that, when grandfather passed away, second grandfather was the one who always took care of us. If it wasn't for him, our branch would have gone out of existence long ago. There's no way that we would have been able to wait for my father and cousins to grow up." Sima Lie was quite moved.
"You Yue, how did you get out?"
"Little Roar helped." Sima You Yue replied.
While they were walking, Sima Lie and the others kept asking her questions. She briefly explained what happened since they left and the grandfather-son group were all extremely enraged when they heard that the Nalan Clan and other powers had tried to split the power of the Sima Clan.
Sima You Yue told them not to worry before recounting how she settled the crisis. However, she left out the part where she became a Beast Tamer Master, saying instead that Wei Zi Qi and the others had helped by looking for the Beast Tamer Master Guild.
"It's been tough on you…" Sima Lie patted Sima You Yue's head as he spoke.
Sima You Yue shook her head and said with a smile, "That's our home. Protecting it is something I should do. In the past, it was always grandfather and brothers protecting me. All I'm able to do is just to protect our home and ensure that it remains."
Seeing the smile on Sima You Yue's face and hearing her talk about the warmth of their family, everyone felt that they were in a dream. Was that decisive murderer just now, really her? Or was she this obedient docile person?
While they were talking, they came to the back of the mountain. They thought about how many people who were ranked Spirit Saint and above lived on this large mountain range, and it was clear how a first rate power really needed to have a lot of inside information.
Sima Lin had been silent the entire journey, listening only to how Sima You Yue passed the three years. In his heart, he thought about how it made sense that she had advanced so quickly. It turns out that it was due to her life endangering experiences.
He brought them halfway up the mountain peak and a cave appeared in the middle of the vines. He took the lead, dipping his head low to enter.
The people behind followed after and entered. When they came across a small pathway, they came to a stone house where an old man sat on the stone praying mat.
"Greetings to second grandfather." Sima Lie, SIma Lin and the others bowed to that person.
Sima You Yue and the others also bowed in greeting. It was only Halcyon who remained standing.
"Lie'er" The Ancestor looked at Sima Lie, as his ancient and calm eyes flashed with a light smile.
His face full of wrinkles was different from the average person at the peak of Spirit Paragon Rank. He did not choose to stay young.
"Second Grandfather, I have returned." Sima Lie knelt down and greeted his most beloved senior.
Sima You Ming and the others knelt down as well when she saw this.
Sima You Yue stood motionless.
"You all are all that remains of this line." The old man said. He raised his hand and a few rays of light shot into them.
"Grandfather." Sima You Yue cried out in panic.
"Don't worry, this is to help them release their binding." The ancestor said.
Sima Lin explained as well, "Only we are able to release the Sima Clan's binding. That's why, even if you take them away, they will not be able to recover their cultivation."
"You should first refine the medicine in your bodies." The ancestor said. Then, he turned to Sima Lin and said, "Tell me more about the situation. Sigh, I'm old, it must have been a few years since I've entered."
Sima Lin explained right from when he went to the Dong Chen Kingdom three years ago, while Sima Lie and the others once again felt the flow of their spiritual qi once again. After that, they circulated their spiritual qi to activate the recovery pill.
Halcyon had not spoken since he entered and was currently standing there silently. It was not that the ancestor was too arrogant to pay attention to him, but it was just that he had acted as if he didn't want to be acknowledged ever since he entered, so the ancestor wasn't able to engage him.
Sima Lin recounted the story and when he was done, the ancestor said, "Although they do have fault, it does not warrant exterminating them. After all, we are still a family."
"No, I only have my Grandfather and Brothers as my family. The others are not. If my Grandfather recognised his roots, then only you would count." Sima You Yue said, "However, don't you all want to punish my Grandfather and the others as traitors? In that case, I don't think that we're going to be a family."
"It is impossible to unravel what happened that year. If you want to know what happened that year, you first need to treat that youngest." The ancestor said.
"I said that I would try, but they insisted that it was impossible." Sima You Yue said, "I already suspect whether or not they wish to harm him secretly, so that my Grandfather and the others will never be washed of their injustice."
"You're mistaken." The ancestor said, "For many years prior to this, we have been looking for the Golden Snake Fruit and Earth Dragon Marrow. It is not because we want to make it difficult for you during this period."
"Furthermore, not just anyone will be able to hurt youngest uncle." Sima Lin said.
"Why is that?"
"Although Youngest Uncle is incoherent, his cultivation is still high. It's just that he's not coherent now. If someone wants to harm him, he will definitely defend himself!" Sima Lin replied.
"Okay then." Sima You Yue pursed her lips, "Since this is the case, I'll go and take a look. Who knows, I might be able to cure him."
