Yan Ya heard what she said and raised his eyebrows, “Little Martial Uncle wants to protect me?”
“You are already calling me Little Martial Uncle, so of course I have to protect you.” Sima You Yue said, “However, I can tell that according to your personality, you probably won’t do that.”
“Xie Hun won’t do anything to me just because of him yet.” Yan Ya said confidently.
“What about the people backing him?”
The fact that he could rely on his connections meant that his background was very strong.
“They are not aware that he was together with me anyway. If they knew, I would just mention your name. Anyways, it was you who defeated him. At most, I would be at fault for not being able to protect him.” Yan Ya said jokingly.
Sima You Yue knew that he had the ability, and he was able to adapt, so there was no need to worry about him.
“When will you be leaving?”
” I plan to leave after telling you.”
“Is Fei Yi leaving with you?”
“Be careful on the way back. *
“You too. Many dangers still lurk in the Hidden Sect.”
Yan Ya left together with Fei Yi. She now knew two less people in the sect.
Lu Yan was in seclusion. Since she had no one to teach her, she brought the three little ones to the yard to practice. The members of the Hidden Sect were all eager to see her, the one who caused so much trouble, but they didn’t think she would not come out at all.
She was actually not interested in the sect at all! She had already been here for two months, yet she had not left the mountain. Was she really as cold as ice? Even her three little children had yet to be seen.
Really, at such a young age, why did she act like an adult? She was not curious about anything at all.
“You tell me, why isn’t Sima You Yue coming out? Is she scared of being attacked by those people?” Mu Ye Qi bantered as he lay in Jia Nan Xin’s courtyard. The sect had been too quiet lately, and those who usually started drama were not around, so there was nothing fun to watch.
“Do you think she is someone like that?” Jia Nan Xin asked.
Mu Ye Qi thought for a while, and said, “Judging from the situation that happened previously, no. But she hasn’t come out in a long time, so people have no choice but to think this way. Xin, what do you think?”
“If it was you, could you stay in the mountain for so long?” Jia Nan Xin asked.
“Of course not, I will lose my mind! Unless I’m in seclusion, where I don’t know how much time has passed.” Mu Ye Qi said.
“You have a happy-go-lucky personality, so you won’t be able to tolerate training day after day. That’s why, not leaving the mountains for months may be due to her timid personality, but it could also be due to her calm and mature personality.” Jia Nan Xin analysed.
“Anything else? You think that she is like the second type that you mentioned?”
“She has just reached the Music Sect, but was immediately accepted by Sect Master Lu as a disciple. Did he accept any female disciples in recent years?
“So, Sect Master Lu must have had his reasons to have accepted her.” Jia Nan Xin analysed, “I heard that Sect Master Lu managed to sense an advance in rank after having a conversation with her for a while.”
“This seems to be true. Everyone has spread this rumour around. Tell me, how do you think she managed to do it?”
“I don’t know how she managed to do it. You and I both know about Sect Master Lu’s matters. Although we do not know the reason behind it, he has knots in his heart. They’re stuck in his heart, unable to let go, so he has been unable to enter a state of contemplation, preventing him from advancing in rank.” Jia Nan Xin continued, “Under this type of situation, she only had one conversation with him and he managed to enter a state of contemplation. This only shows that she is incredible. A person like that, do you think she would be someone to hide in the mountains just because she is afraid?”
“Alright, since you’ve analysed it this way, it doesn’t seem to be the case.” Mu Ye Qi said, “Sigh, if she doesn’t come out, those people will not be able to find trouble with her.”
“If you wish to meet her, you can look for her directly.” Jia Nan Xin said, “If you’re here, you won’t be able to see her no matter how much you sigh.”
“Why would I want to see her? I was just saying.”
“Do I not know you well enough?”
Jia Nan Xin’s one look was enough to make him surrender. He pouted, saying, “Let’s go then.”
Since he knew what he was thinking, then he should know his motive too.
Jia Nan Xin stood up and walked out…
They were not the only two who were curious about Sima You Yue. Everyone in the Hidden Sect were all very curious about her, but they had no connections with her, so they had no reason to visit her.
Sima You Yue was taken aback when she heard that Jia Nan Xin and Mu Ye Qi had come to look for her. After that, she let the informant bring them in.
“Sima You Yue, why are you cooped up here and not going out? If you don’t go out, there will be no drama for us to see!” Mu Ye Qi complained as soon as he saw her.
Sima You Yue thought about how this rascal had helped her in the small town all because he wanted to watch some drama unfold. However, nothing happened after such a long time, so he came to visit because of this?
“So it is the two geniuses of the Array Sect who have come.” She fetched the two of them from her yard and waved her hand to show the two the way to the living room.”
“In front of Wu Lingyu, we wouldn’t dare to bear the title of ‘geniuses’.” Jia Nan Xin said. He saw a tea set in the yard’s pavilion, and asked, “You were drinking tea?”
“Yes, I was talking to the little rascal about some cultivation matters, it made me thirsty.”
“Then we should sit in the courtyard instead.” He was already walking in that direction by the time he finished speaking.
Sima You Yue had no choice but to bring the two of them to the pavilion. She kept away the tea from earlier, and brewed a new batch of tea for them.
Mu Ye Qi saw that she was personally brewing the tea and asked, “Don’t you have maids or the like here?”
“Nope, it’s just me and the three kids.” Sima You Yue said.
“With three children, it will not be them taking care of you, it’s you taking care of them.” Mu Ye Qi had never seen someone like her. Normally, people would bring maids or servants, or they would just come alone. But bringing three children along? She was the first. “But, the tea isn’t bad.”
“If I had a servant girl, you wouldn’t be able to drink this tea.” Sima You Yue said, “The two of you came today just to ask me about this?”
“Yes! If you don’t go out, no one will dare to come find you here. Or else, it would be like looking for trouble, which is looking for death.” Mu Ye Qi said, “You have been here for more than two months, are you not curious about the Hidden Sect at all?”
“Then why don’t you go out to take a look?”
“No rush. I’ll go when I have the time.”
“Are you waiting for your Master to exit his exclusion? Even if your Master successfully advanced in rank and came out, he wouldn’t care about your matters too.”
“It is not because of that. I came here to learn, so of course I will first have to study. When I’m tired from learning, I’ll start going out. This is called striking a balance between work and rest.”
“You have been studying for more than two months. Aren’t you tired yet!”
“I just started, so I’m very interested.”
Actually, Sima You Yue knew these were all excuses, she just didn’t want to go out. It was not that she was afraid of the troubles that would come, but that she did not want to deal with it now. It would be wasting her time. Unless she had no choice, she would not want to go out.”
“You are obviously so young, so why is your mentality like an old womans’!”
Sima You Yue smiled without saying a word. There were some things that she couldn’t explain.
At that moment, there was a sudden fluctuation in the spiritual energy in the air… Then, it swarmed towards the direction of Lu Yan’s courtyard, and a whirlpool entered the house he was in.
