Sima You Yue just entered the courtyard when Su Xiao Xiao walked in holding the broom . He cried out desperately, “Little Junior, you’re back! Have your wounds healed?”
“I’m much better now . ” Sima You Yue said, “Are you cleaning again?”
“That’s right . You didn’t see how dirty the courtyard was these few days . It was really unsightly! Eldest disciple and I initially wanted to go and look for you, but Master grabbed us and got us to clean . With the principal back home, he wants us to keep things tidy . That’s why we haven’t had the time to look for you . ” Su Xiao Xiao whined miserably .
“What has Master gotten you all to do?” Sima You Yue asked .
“What else? Dealing with Principal Yan’s issue . In the end, we hadn’t finished before Principal Yan returned, and he failed us upon inspection, which is why we had to continue cleaning . We just finished, so I finally had time to clean up the courtyard . It was really too dirty!”
Sima You Yue saw how angsty Xiao Xiao was, and realised that his OCD must have really caused him discomfort .
“Is eldest senior sleeping?”
“Yeah . He fell asleep the moment we returned . He hasn’t had the time to these past few days, so I’m guessing that he’ll sleep for a few days . ” Su Xiao Xiao said, “Junior, you can wait in the courtyard . You can head in once I’ve tidied up your room . ”
“There’s no need to trouble yourself, Senior Brother . Is Senior sister around?”
“I think so . ” Su Xiao Xiao prepared to holler for Han Miao Shuang from across the room, but Sima You Yue stopped him .
“Senior Brother, there’s no need to shout . I can look for her myself . ” She said while covering his mouth .
“Alright then, go ahead . I’ll continue to clean up the courtyard . ” Su Xiao Xiao left holding his broom .
Sima You Yue went to Han Miao Shuang’s house . That guy had been dragged back for manual labour the past few days, and was now fast asleep inside .
Sima You Yue knocked on his door, but Han Miao Shuang ignored her . After thinking for a bit, she took out a roasted chicken drumstick and ate it .
The person inside wiggled her nose as her eyes immediately fluttered open . After a moment’s hesitation, she ran over to open the door .
“Ah, I knew you had returned . Whoa, it smells good . Do you have any for me?”
Sima You Yue saw that she was still wearing her pajamas, so she stepped inside and closed the door, “We’ll talk after you’ve put on some clothes and cleaned up . ”
Although Han Miao Shuang really wanted to eat it, Sima You Yue had declared that she was to clean up . Otherwise, she wouldn’t get to eat any . As such, she hurriedly tidied herself .
Once she was done, Sima You Yue took out another bit of roasted chicken drumstick and gave it to her . Then, she asked, “Do you have anything on?”
Han Miao Shuang shook her head, “Master won’t give us anymore tasks for the time being . ”
“Then I’ll need your help . ” Sima You Yue said .
“What do you need help with?”
Sima You Yue took out a pill method and Han Miao Shuang took one glance at it before filling with excitement .
“This is an ancient pill recipe! How did you get it?”
“Somehow . ” Sima You Yue said, “I need a lot of different pills right now . Will you and the other seniors be able to help me?”
“Is this for spirit beasts?” Han Miao Shuang guessed it the moment she saw the ingredients listed .
“Yeah . ” Sima You Yue said, “How is it? Will you be able to?”
“I’ve never done it before, but the rank isn’t that high . It’s merely at rank six . It shouldn’t be a problem to refine . How many do you need and when do you need it?” Han Miao Shuang muttered .
“Ten days, including today . As for how many I need, the more the better . ” Sima You Yue said .
“No problem . ” Han Miao Shuang declared .
Sima You Yue took out an empty interspatial ring . Inside it was all the ingredients she needed to refine the pill .
“Eldest Senior Brother and third Senior Brother are over there, you can go and tell them . If they’re willing, you can show them the recipe as well . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Alright . I’ll go over to look for them now . ” Han Miao Shuang went out holding the pill recipe .
Sima You Yue held on to her, “Wait a moment before going . Third Senior Brother said that you’d just finished your tasks, so he’s cleaning the courtyard . He’ll feel uncomfortable if he doesn’t tidy it up . You can let Eldest Senior Brother sleep a bit more too . ”
“Okay then . ” Han Miao Shuang placed the pill recipe down as she sat down and continued to eat, “What about you?”
“I’m going to look for my friends . They know how to refine pills as well, so I’ll be with them . ” Sima You Yue said, “Alright . I’ve given you the things, and I’ll be back in ten days . ”
Sima You yue left Parting garden and went to look for Bei Gong Tang and Ouyang Fei . The both of them were not around, so she had no choice but to reach them using the Mother Son stone .
The both of them returned quickly .
“You Yue, you’re back! We heard that you were injured, are you okay?”
“I’m okay . ” Sima You Yue said, “I came to look for you for something . ”
Bei Gong Tang and Ouyang Fei exchanged glances, wondering what it was that Sima You Yue needed their help with .
“I’ve already prepared a barrier . You guys can follow me in . ” You Yue brought the two of them inside her spirit pagoda after she finished speaking .
Ten days later, Sima You Yue took the ring filled full of pills and went outside .
When she arrived at the array to leave the inner sect, it was the same two people standing guard . She took out Xu Jin’s name plate and they let her go smoothly .
Once she had left, the two continued drinking, eating and chatting .
“He was the one Principal Yan was talking about?”
“Should be . Xu Jin’s disciple . Isn’t he the one?”
“The fact that Principal Yan has placed all his hopes on that chap is a little unimaginable . ”
“It’s normal for the unimaginable to happen with Xu Jin’s disciple . ”
“Mm . I hope that he will fulfill that wish . ”
“Whether or not he can, we cannot do anything about it . Come, let’s continue to drink . ”
Sima You Yue returned home where Shui Qing Man was waiting for her .
“Tenth Bro, you’re finally back . If you took any longer, we would have left . ” Wu La Xiu said .
Sima You Yue saw how anxious they were and asked, “What’s wrong? Has the situation on the battlefield changed?”
“Yes . We received news yesterday that the water dragon clan has already sent their troops in . There should be a huge battle happening in these two days . ” Wu La Xiu explained, “We wanted to leave yesterday, but we thought of how today was our appointed date, so we waited one more day . ”
“Since that’s the case, I won’t keep you anymore . ” Sima You Yue took out the interspatial ring and handed it over to Shui Qing Man, “Mother, these are the pills . Take them back . It’s just in time for you to use on the battlefield . ”
Shui Qing Man observed the inside and saw that there were thousands of pill bottles as she cried out with surprise, “You refined all of these within the last few days?”
Sima You Yue knew that the number would shock her as she explained, “I refined this with a few others . You know that there are many alchemists in the inner sect . ”
“Thank you, child . ” Shui Qing Ma hugged her as she opened a portal and left . Wu La Er and the others said their goodbyes as well as they followed her through .
Initially, Shui Qing Man had been anxious upon receiving the news . However, she was confident upon her return . She believed that with so many pills, they would definitely survive this calamity .
