Chapter 54 : “The Person Behind”
Sima You Yue gave a toast to everyone before sitting down on her own seat, saying, "I was teleported to a faraway place, encountered some situations, got held up over there and finally found a Teleportation Array and teleported back only recently."
"How did you end up entering that Fourth teleportation array?" Bei Gong Tang opened her mouth, grasping the crux of the situation immediately.
Sima You Yue smiled, raising her tea to drink another mouthful, saying, "Because someone pushed me in."
"You're saying that someone schemed against you?!" Fatty Qu jumped up immediately and cried out, "Who is it, we'll go look for that person!"
Wei Zi Qi pulled Fatty Qu back onto his seat and said, "Why are you so agitated? First listen to what You Yue has to say."
"Meng Ting?" Ouyang Fei looked towards Sima You Yue.
Meng Ting was the only one who had any form of enmity towards her this in this period of time. It was not strange for everyone to put the blame on her.
Sima You Yue shook her head and said, "Not her."
"Not her? Then who else wishes to harm you?" Fatty Qu said, "I've also heard some people say that people who entered in the past rarely survived to come out."
Thinking back on how she had seen all those skeletons back in the Illusion Array, it truly was a place of no return. Furthermore, if they had, like her, been sent to Pu Luo Mountain Range, chances of survival would drop even further.
"Yup, the number of people who wish to harm me are not few." Sima You Yue said, "But the one who I believe pushed me inside is not the main schemer, the person is just a henchman. The one I wish to find is the one who hides behind that person."
"The one who hides behind?" Wei Zi Qi and Fatty Qu looked at Sima You Yue.
"When that time comes, it's possible that I'll need your help." Sima You Yue said.
"Alright." Bei Gong Tang sounded in reply before turning to leave.
Ouyang Fei also nodded before he left.
Sima You Yue saw the two of them leave before sighing, "These two are still as cold as before!"
"They've already gotten a lot better. At the very least, they helped you to clean up this place and were concerned about what happened to you. If this was in the past, I'm afraid these two would have directly returned back to their houses, not even caring about what happened." Wei Zi Qi said.
"Yup, I also did not expect the two of them to stay behind to help me tidy up this place." Sima You Yue said, "However, how would my place become like this? It looked like it had been completely thrashed!"
"It truly is strange." Fatty Qu said, "When something had happened to you, none of us had entered your room so we did not realise that your place had become like this. Did you lose anything?"
"I lost a few ornaments." Sima You Yue said.
"Then it must be that someone had broken in when we went to class." Wei Zi Qi said.
"Yup, the things that were lost were not particularly expensive or precious." Sima You Yue said.
"You Yue, now that you're back, you definitely would shock the one who had harmed you that time!" Fatty Qu rubbed his hands together in glee, ready for action. Thinking of what would happen when Sima You Yue was seen by people, his face revealed an exceedingly excited expression.
"Yup, I also want to see what kind of expression those people would have." Sima You Yue smiled.
"Right, does Master Feng know that you've returned?" Wei Zi Qi asked.
"He doesn't know that I've returned to the school compound." Sima You Yue thought of Feng Zhi Xing and pursed her lips. Grandfather had told her that in this period of time, he had been very concerned about her. Even though his actions were a bit strange in the past, thinking about it now, he must not have had any evil intentions. "I will go look for him at the office later."
"Alright, then you should go and rest first. We'll go back first."
Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi both stood up to leave.
Little Roar, who had been silently lying down on the table finally opened his eyes, looked at Sima You Yue and said, "The four of them were really concerned about you!"
"How do you know?"
Little Roar stretched lazily and said, "Who am I? I am Divine Roar, an Ancient Sacred Beast! I am especially sensitive towards people's emotions."
Sima You Yue smiled, she had also felt it. This time, their gazes revealed astonishment and joy. Their very first reaction was from the heart, even Bei Gong Tang's eyes momentarily flashed with joy.
"Let's go up and rest then go look for Master Feng later." After she said this, she picked up Little Roar from the desk and headed upstairs.
There were no afternoon classes so Fatty Qu and the rest were all cultivating inside their own rooms. Sima You Yue went to Fend Zhi Xing's office alone.
Feng Zhi Xing was currently meditating. Hearing the knock on the door, both his eyes opened as he said unhurriedly, "Enter."
Sima You Yue pushed opened the door and bowed to Feng Zhi Xing, saying, "Master Feng, I have come to report."
"You're ready to return to classes?" Feng Zhi Xing looked at Sima You Yue as he smiled and indicated for her to sit at a chair on the side.
"That's right, I've already settled my business at home and so I have come back to class." Sima You Yue looked at the chair but still chose to continue standing.
When she faced Feng Zhi Xing, she always had some insurmountable feeling. She knew that this person in front of her was definitely extremely strong. The stronger she grew, she stronger she felt he was.
"Good, then you may begin attending classes tomorrow." Feng Zhi Xing nodded without saying anything else.
"If there's nothing else, I will take my leave first." Sima You Yue said.
"Wait." Feng Zhi Xing called for her to stop, "The principal knows that you've returned and feels a bit curious about where the Teleportation Array has sent you. He wishes for you to pay him a visit once you've returned. Follow me."
After Feng Zhi Xing said this, he bought Sima You Yue to the principal's office.
This was the first time that Sima You Yue had met the principal. Sima Lie had told her before that he was good friends with the principal and that if she had any problems she could always go and look for her. So she had the impression that the principal must have been someone similar to Sima Lie.
However, the moment she saw him, she realised that this principal was completely different from her own grandfather.
Sima Lie gave off some kind of soldier's aura, imperceptibly giving others a kind of pressure, while this principal gave others a very easy-going feel, as if he had no constrictions.
The principal looked at Sima You Yue and was not surprised, he just peacefully asked her some questions regarding what happened to her during the period of time where she had gone missing.
Sima You Yue merely answered simply that she had been sent to Pu Luo Mountain Range, that it was merely on the fringes and that she had had been rescued by a group of people when she was in danger then finally followed them to wander around the place for a few months.
Feng Zhi Xing and the principal did not call her any of her words into question, although they also did not fully believe it. They just wanted to see that she had safely returned.
Leaving the principal's office, Sima You Yue still thought of how, when she was leaving, she saw Feng Zhi Xing patting her head. It felt as if he was patting the head of his junior. Because she was too lost in thought, she had not paid attention to what was in front of her and when she left the office, she bumped into a person who was rushing in.
"Ah, who's this person who did not open their eyes! Do you want to die!" The person who had been bumped into shouted. After looking at her clearly, she stammered, "It’s… it's you?!"
Sima You Yue looked at He Qiu Zhi, who had become so arrogantly merely after not seeing her for a few months. She thought of how she had always carefully stood behind Meng Ting, yet now she had become so imposing.
It looked like the person backing her had really made her life great recently.
