995 A hidden clan
When Sima You Yue went back to the inn, Han Miao Shuang and the others ran down from upstairs .
“Junior Brother, where did you go?” When Instructor Mao and the others wanted to go to the guild, they looked for you but they said that you had already left . ” Han Miao Shuang grabbed her hand, saying, “You’re okay, right?”
“I’m good . ” Sima You Yue saw that Mao San Quan and the others were still around and said apologetically, “Instructor Mao, I’m really sorry . I wasted some of your time . ”
“It’s fine as long as you’re okay . ” Mao San Quan replied .
“You Yue, where did you go?” Wei Zheng was rather puzzled when he recalled how, when he had gone to look for her, they said that she had long since left with Little Seven .
“I made a friend at the Alchemist Guild . Then he brought me out for a walk . ” Sima You Yue said .
“You made a new friend at the guild?”
“That’s right . ” Sima You Yue said, “He told me not to talk about him and maintain secrecy . ”
“Since that’s the case, you can go and rest . ” Mao San Quan said, “It will be the pill competition in a few days, you should get some practice in . Things will be rather chaotic outside for the next few days, don’t go outside for no reason . ”
“Understood, Instructor Mao . ”
The students didn’t understand why it would be chaotic, but Sima You Yue and the others knew why . They were just afraid that it would be too chaotic, so it was best for these little students not to get dragged into it .
However, it wasn’t something that she could avoid just because she wanted to .
When Sima You Yue arrived at the rooms, Wu Lingyu was no longer there . After walking around to look for him, she just went ahead to get her own things done .
At this moment, Wu Lingyu just returned from outside . He came to the hall, paused for a moment, then turned around and headed to the backyard .
“Master . ” A chubby shopkeeper came out from inside the house and bowed in greeting .
Wu Lingyu headed directly to the house and casually set up a barrier . Then, he recovered his usual appearance .
“Did you find anything?” A smile was plastered upon his face, but his eyes held no trace of warmth .
“We found out that they were people from the Xuan Qiu clan . ” The chubby shopkeeper replied .
“Men from the Xuan Qiu clan have come?” Sima You Yue was rather puzzled, “Who?”
“Xuan Qiu He . ”
“The disabled young master of the Xuan Qiu Clan?” Wu Lingyu’s gaze turned contemplative, “What did he come for?”
“He should be here to look for Xia Zhang Tian and Zhao Xiang Qi to treat him . ” Chubby Shopkeeper replied, “We even received news that they brought two valuable Sago Palms . ”
“He even obtained those treasures? I wonder if You You will like it . If he likes it, I can get it for him . ”
“…” Three black lines appeared on the side of the chubby shopkeeper’s face, saying, “I’m guessing that Young Master You Yue already knows about it . ”
“How does he know?”
“Today, Xuan Qiu He already brought him to where he stays . ” Chubber Shopkeeper replied, “I’m guessing that he didn’t just bring Young Master You Yue over for a chat . ”
“You You went to where Xuan Qiu He is?” Wu Lingyu frowned, “Where is he now?”
“Already back at the inn . ” The Chubby Shopkeeper said, “I…”
He didn’t even manage to finish his sentence when Wu Lingyu disappeared .
He shook his head, sighed and said, “The Master is really bent… sigh…”
Sima You Yue was currently reading when she felt a flash of light in front of her . When she raised her head, Wu Lingyu was already standing in front of her .
“Why did you suddenly appear? You gave me a shock . ” She said as she shot him a glare .
Wu Lingyu sat down beside her, then stretched out an arm to wrap it around her waist, asking, “You went to meet Xuan Qiu He?”
“Who’s Xuan Qiu He?” Sima You Yue asked .
“Didn’t you go to Xuan Qiu He’s courtyard?” Wu Lingyu droned as he leaned on her shoulder .
“You mean Xuan Qiu?” Sima You Yue knew who he was talking about, “Oh, so Xuan Qiu was his surname . ”
“Why did that blind guy ask you out? You could have asked me to pick you up . ” Wu Lingyu said unhappily .
“You’re acquainted with Xuan Qiu?” Sima You Yue asked .
“Don’t call him so intimately . He’s called Xuan Qiu he . ” Wu Lingyu corrected her .
“Alright . Xuan Qiu He . Do you know him?” Sima You Yue went along with it .
“We’ve never spoken to each other . ” What he meant was that he knew of his identity . “You didn’t answer me, what were you doing with him?”
Sima You Yue told him about how she had met Xuan Qiu He when she was in the medicinal garden . She also told him about what happened after, leaving out the part where the jealous person looked like she wanted to beat her up .
“He really only looked for you because he wanted your scarlet bees?”
“Of course . ” Sima You Yue stretched forth a hand to pinch his cheeks, “Why else? It’s not like he knows I’m female!”
“Hmph hmph, that guy is a cripple, but he has his fair share of hurting women . I’m just cautioning you not to be tricked by him . ” Wu Lingyu said .
“Am I that shallow?” Sima You Yue pinched him harder . She was upset now .
“If you were a shallow person, I wouldn’t have to warn you . I’m a lot more excellent than he is . ”
“This is confidence . However, with you here, even this bit of confidence is meaningless . ”
“I think you’re just shameless . ” Sima You Yue used both hands to squish his cheeks, “What kind of status does Xuan Qiu He have?”
“He’s the young master of the Xuan Qiu clan . ”
“The Xuan Qiu Clan? Is that clan from the central or inner regions?” It was the first that Sima You Yue had heard of this surname . She even thought that his surname was Xuan, and his name was Qiu .
“None . ” Wu Lingyu said .
“Then where is it from?”
“It’s a hidden clan . ”
“Hidden clan?” Sima You Yue raised her eyebrows in surprise . She didn’t think that the Xuan Qiu clan would be that powerful .
“That’s right . They don’t normally appear, but for Xuan Qiu He’s sake, they have been more active lately . ” Wu Lingyu said, “Powers like them are normally arrogant and cocky . They’re annoying just to look at . That’s why you should interact less with them in the future . ”
Sima You Yue glared at Wu Lingyu, saying, “Why do I smell jealousy in the air?”
“No way!” Wu Lingyu would never admit it . He was just really annoyed with that kind of immortal-like male .
“Xuan Qiu He’s men really aren’t bad . You’ll know once you interact more with them . ” Sima You Yue said, “You won’t control how I make my friends, right?”
Wu Lingyu saw how Sima You Yue was looking at him solemnly, and he mulled over the words he wanted to say . He finally compromised .
“How could I ever control you? I’ve never controlled you . ” A certain someone cried out in their heart, it’s not true! It’s not true!
However, he knew that she didn’t like it, so he could only keep it inside .
“Alright, then that’s fine . You can go ahead and do your own things . I want to continue reading . I just happened to encounter a more complicated part . ” Sima You Yue said with a smile .
“Alright then . I’m going out for a bit . I’ll be back in a while . ” Wu Lingyu patted her head before heading outside .
Sima You Yue waved at him, protesting the way he patted her as if she were a dog . However, this guy had already left .
Wu Lingyu exited the house and his body flashed . Arriving in the sky, he locked on towards a certain direction, saying, “Come out . ”
Those hiding in the air initially didn’t want to appear . However, since he had locked on to them, they couldn’t escape . They could only reveal themselves .
The moment Wu Lingyu saw the two of them, his eyes dimmed, saying, “Men from the Xuan Qiu clan?!”
