Yin Lang rubbed his chin and said, “Was my expression that obvious?”
“Too obvious.” Sima You Yue said, “Say it, what do you want?”
“It’s nothing much, actually. I just need to ask you for a favour.” Yin Lang said.
“Is someone from your family dying?” Sima You Yue subconsciously asked.
“…” This reaction…
“Nobody in my family is dying.”
“Oh. Then what did you want my help with?” Sima You Yue asked.
“I was thinking of asking you to pay Madame He a visit.” Yin Lang said.
“Madame He? The sleeping beauty of this Chord City?” Sima You Yue looked at him with puzzlement. “Why are you so worried about that Madame He?”
“Su Su needs that Profound Moon Fruit. Although she has the ability to clinch first place in this, I’m thinking that it’s not too possible for her to be able to cure Madame He.” Yin Lang said.
“You want to help her obtain the Profound Moon Fruit?”
“You are such a good uncle.” Sima You Yue initially saw how he was wanton and unbridled and even thought that he didn’t care! “Your medicinal skills should be powerful as well, why aren’t you going yourself?”
“I’ve already seen it, but I haven’t discovered the cause.” Yin Lang said it magnanimously and without any shame.
“Even you can’t figure out the cause?” Sima You Yue was even more shocked. At the same time, she was curious about just what it was that was ailing Madame He.
“Not a simple part of her looks out of the ordinary, but she really seems to be sleeping. However, if she were really just sleeping, who could go on sleeping for a few years?”
“That really is strange.”
Sima You Yue wanted to ask whether or not she had also fallen under the Hundred Days of Sleep because most people wouldn’t be able to recognise this poison. The person would just look like they were sleeping.
However, thinking about it, if it really were the Hundred Days of Sleep, he should be able to recognise it. That was why she tossed that idea out the window.
“How about it, do you have any interest in going over to take a look?” Yin Lang asked when he saw that she was curious.
Sima You Yue glanced at him from the corner of her eyes, “You’re clearly the one inviting me to go, so what does it have to do with my interest? However, my fees are expressive. Are you sure that you want to invite me?”
“To use money to solve a problem is no problem at all.” Yin Lang said confidently.
“Is that so?” Sima You Yue looked at Yin Lang and beamed, “You’re part of the forty divisions of the Yin Clan, right?”
Yin Lang saw her smile and bad feeling rose within him. He placed both hands across his chest and looked at her suspiciously, “What do you want to do?”
Sima You Yue’s expression darkened. Just what kind of expression was this bastard givin gher!
“If… you want me, I can give myself to you.” Yin Lang suddenly released his hands and appeared obedient and docile, “But that would mean that you are my woman!”
“You wish. Even if you lay down willingly, I wouldn’t want to take you!” Sima You Yue rolled her eyes, “I have another condition…”
Yin Lang pursed his lips. What did she mean that he was willing to lie down? Even if it were that, he would be the one on top! Hmph hmph!
However, when heard her request, his gaze slowly shifted.
“This request of yours. It seems to be a little too much.”
Sima You Yue smiled, “How about it? You already said that Lady Su needs that Profound Moon Fruit, which is why this is important to you. However, without you, I will still be able to find other options. That is why, this is important to you guys, but optional to me.”
“Are you just that confident of being able to treat Madame He?”
“Of course… not!” Sima You Yue said, “However, if I succeed, the conditions stand. If I cannot do it, we will consider the trade null and void.”
Yin Lang hesitated somewhat. It seemed like this condition that she put forth was truly rather difficult.
“Actually, this condition isn’t set in stone.” Sima You Yue said, “In all trades, you should consider friendship.”
“You want to become my woman?” Yin Lang asked.
Sima You Yue grabbed a spirit fruit from the table and tossed it at him.
Aside from this sentence, did he not know how to say anything else?
Yin Lang grabbed the spirit fruit and took a bite before continuing, “Alright, then tell me. What friendship price is there?”
“If you have anything you need in the future, I will naturally help you out.” Sima You Yue said, “Don’t look at me now and think that I’m weak. There will be a day when I grow strong.”
“I don’t doubt that in the least.” Yin Lang said, “I was waiting for these words.”
He was familiar with all that Sima You Yue had done in the outer and central regions. She managed to climb to such a height in a mere span of ten years, which meant that you couldn’t look down on her future.
Now that she had said these words, as long as there was no sudden huge conflict of interest, they would not be enemies in the future.
Now that she was not that powerful yet, to lend her a helping hand would be far better than sending a basket of roses when she was already powerful.
“Then it’s settled. Once I have the time, I will take you to the He Clan.”
“Wait a moment. Once the results of the competition are out, someone might actually be able to solve it! If we go and get involved again, the He Clan might lose faith.”
“Alright then. It will be okay to wait a few more days.”
A few days later, the Women’s Gathering officially began. In the past, there were still many activities that involved chatting and playing around. However, it was now a competition.
Sima You Yue had no interest in these days. However, it wouldn’t be a bad thing to find out more about the situation of the ladies in the inner regions.
The competition this time wasn’t official, so there wasn’t much difference between it and the finals of a competition. All the people who competed only had one competition, and they would submit their final results to the judges. The judges would announce those ranked in the top few, so those who scored relatively badly would not be shamed.
As for those judges, they were all the lady officials from the older generations who held higher positions in the inner regions. Just like Huang Ying Ying said, one of the judges was her childhood friend and was one of the vice leaders of a sect.
Everyday, there would be one item per competition. What was different from the previous years was that the doctors who were valued the least based on before were all placed on the first day.
As for the contents of the competition, they found a whole group of sick people, and every single one of them appeared to be in some sort of stupor. The objective was to treat their sick person and the first one to complete it would take first place in this round.
Sima You Yue and Yin Lang sat on the observatory along with others from the Sima Clan. they saw the group of sick people lying on the ground and pursed their lips, saying, “The head of the He Clan couldn’t be planning to find out the cure for Madame He based on these sick people, right?”
“That is very obviously the case.” Yin Lang said, “I have interacted with He Zhen Zhang a little, and have seen him and his madame. It’s similar to what the rumors say. He really is a man who loves his wife more than his life! Now that she is in this condition, I guess that he must be at a complete loss.”
Sima You Yue looked at the heart of the observatory on the other side and only saw a square-faced male watching the competition below with rapt attention. It seemed like he had even forgotten to breathe.
When he saw that someone had successfully cured the sick person and woken him up, he stood up excitedly and gave some instructions to the person beside him. That person immediately went downstairs and invited that lady to leave the arena.
