Chapter 246: Moving a stone to smash one's own foot
"Eldest Grandfather, You Lan is here. Since you've woken up, don't stay naked in the bucket." Sima You Yue continued.
Sima Tai came out from the bucket and put on some clothes. It was only then that Sima You Yue and Sima You Lan entered.
"Eldest Grandfather." Sima You Lan bowed respectfully.
Sima Tai nodded at her then stared at Sima You Yue, suspicion rising anew in his heart.
This guy was not yet twenty years old right? He was clear on how severe his wounds were, was he really the one who treated them?
Sima You Yue looked at the red handprints on Sima Tai's face and secretly laughed while saying respectfully, "Eldest Grandfather, it looks like your wounds have pretty much healed. The Clan Lord was very worried about your wounds, so let me go and notify him now that you've awakened."
She turned around and left immediately without waiting for him to reply.
If she continued to stay there, she didn't know whether or not she could hold back her laughter.
She went outside, and had to walk quite a distance before she saw a guard. She sent him to notify the Clan Leader to come over.
Although that guard was puzzled that she actually dared to request for the Clan Leader to go over, he still went to make the report. He initially thought that the Clan Leader who chastise him and never expected that he would actually head off to where Sima You Yue was once he heard the news. He even rushed over with Eldest Senior.
"That guy has such a big influence? Even the Clan Leader went over in person?" That guard muttered as he watched them leave.
Sima Lin very quickly reached Sima You Yue's house and saw her swaying near the main door. They walked over and asked, "He's awake?"
"Awake." Sima You Yue nodded.
"Then what are you doing here?" Sima Lin asked.
"Waiting for you both!" Sima You Yue said with a smile, "Eldest Grandfather is inside, let me take you to him."
So much time had already passed, he wouldn't continue to hold it against her, right?
Although Sima Lin and Eldest Senior did not know why Sima You Yue would be waiting there for them, they guessed that it must be be because of anything good.
As they thought, once they entered and saw a handprint on each side of Sima Tai's face, the two of them could not help but purse they lips and stare at her.
Sima You Yue was actually innocent. She had only casually said it, but she never expected that, although Sima You Lin always appeared to be super bright and intelligent, she actually made such a mistake at this time.
"Greetings to Clan Lord." Sima Lin said in greeting.
Sima Tai waved his hand, saying, "You Lin has already briefed me about the current circumstances of our clan. You are the Clan Leader now and should not be bowing to me."
"No, I'm merely standing in for Clan Leader. Now that you have regained consciousness, the position of Clan Lord is still yours." Sima Lin said, "You know that I neither like this position nor am suitable for it."
Sima You Yue lowered her head and muttered in a small voice, "So you asked me to expend such a great deal of energy to awaken him because you didn't want to be the Clan Leader."
"Lin, you've done well these past three years." Sima Tai said.
Sima Lin shook his head, saying, "If it were you, the Clan would not end up in its current state. I've been guarding this for you for three years, I will now return it to you."
After he spoke, he took out a box and handed it to Sima Tai.
SIma You Yue snuck a peek and guessed that it was like a symbol of being a Clan leader.
"That box is a treasure…" She could not help but say, causing the group of glare at her.
She shrunk back and didn't speak anymore.
"Clan Leader, this child is from Lie's branch. He's one that Lie has adopted." Sima Lin said.
"Medicinal arts are impressive." Sima Tai looked at Sima You Yue. He did not only rescue him, he also found that his powers did not decrease in the least. There were no doctors he knew that had this kind of medical ability.
"Thank you Clan Leader for the praise!" Sima You Yue bent low at the waist and said in a loud voice.
"I'm not done." Sima Tai said, "Medical Arts are impressive but character lacks guidance. It must be that guy Lie who didn't teach him properly."
"Clan Leader, you really hit the mark." Sima You Lan said with a smile, "Zi Qi and the others said that Grandfather Lie used to spoil him silly. He spoils him more than the other Brothers."
SIma You Yue touched her nose. In any case, after hearing Sima Tai's words, he must not be planning on pursuing this any further.
"Where is your Grandfather?" Sima Tai asked.
"Grandfather and the others have left. I don't know when they'll come back. Why don't I go and look for them." Sima You Yue said.
"Go and look for them and get them to head straight for the hall." Sima Tai left the bed after he finished speaking and went off as Sima Lin and Eldest Senior followed after him.
Sima You Lan pursed her lips and glanced at Sima You Yue. She was still laughing at her.
Sima You Lin walked over and raised his right hand high as if he was going to give her a vicious slap, however, he stopped when he was above her head and pinched her ear. It was considered as her punishment.
"Don't let there be a second time." After speaking, he left as well.
Seeing the helplessness in his eyes, she stuck out her tongue when he walked away. However, he unexpectedly turned around and was shocked when he saw this side of her and walked away with a smirk.
Sima You Yue was stunned when he turned around and didn't come back to her senses until he left the house. It was only then that she beat her chest and stamped her feet, why did that guy turn around?!
Her image… it was gone…
"Sigh…" She let out a long sigh and left the Sima house. She found a place and called Sima Lie and the others out.
"Is anything happening?" Sima Lie asked.
"Grandfather, I've healed the previous Clan Leader and Grandfather Lin has given him the position of Clan Leader. He wants to meet you all now." Sima You Yue said.
Sima Lie and the others knew about her going to treat Sima Tai, and naturally had confidence in her medical abilities. They were not surprised at all when they heard that Sima Tai had already been treated.
"So this is the case, then let us go and meet Clan Leader." Sima LIe said, "Big Brother also took care of my brothers and I."
"Grandfather, can I not go?" Sima You Yue asked.
Sima You Yue told him about how she had gotten Sima You Lin to slap Sima Tai a few times and said, "I'm afraid that he'll punish me."
Sima You Ming and his three brothers burst out laughing.
"Sigh, you, even if you wanted to tease You Lin, you shouldn't have done it in this way!" Sima You Ran slapped her head.
"How would I know that he would really slap him!" Sima You Yue was grieved, "He's normally so bright, but at that time, he was so stupid."
Even Sima Lie could not help but laugh, saying, "Let's go. With me around, I won't let anyone treat you unjustly."
In the end, Sima You Yue still had to go along. However, she stood right at the back in hopes that she would not attract anyone's attention.
However, she was the one who had healed the Clan Leader so how was it possible for her to go unnoticed. Every time someone talked about her treating the Clan Leader, she felt that the handprints on the side of the Clan Leader's face was growing a few shades redder.
Finally, everyone else left and only Sima You Yue and Sima Tai remained.
"You got You Lin to slap me." Sima Tai spoke first.
"Haven't me already mentioned this?" Sima You Yue lamented, "I even saved you!"
Sima Tai nodded, saying, "That is true as well. However, this and that are separate matters. What I owe you, I will give. Punishments due will also be meted out."
Smia You Yue's eyes were huge, "I have to be punished?!"
