From Sidekick to Bigshot - Chapter 1461
“Sima Zhi Yuan, are you handing her over or not?!” An Elder with a white moustache shouted while looking at Sima Zhi Yuan with a cold face.
Sima Zhi Yuan rubbed his ears and said, “Don’t shout so loud, the building is going to collapse.”
“Sima Zhi Yuan, don’t try to change the topic. Sima You Yue killed my Grandson, you must hand her over today.” Jiang Yun Long shouted.
“Your Grandson killed my Great Granddaughter, your power isn’t strong enough and even got killed by the baby of my clan, aren’t you embarrassed to come here and ask for her? Aren’t you shameless?!” Sima Zhi Yuan continued, “Your Grandson is older than my Great Granddaughter by a few hundred years right? Tsk tsk, how dare you come here to demand for her. Do you want the whole inner region to know that the Jiang Clan is weaker than a younger generation from the Sima Clan? The young ones died but the old ones came, tsk tsk, shameless! I feel ashamed for you!”
“Don’t spout nonsense, I’m asking you right now, are you handing her over or not?”
“Hand your head over! Do you think anyone can touch my precious Great Granddaughter?” Sima Zhi Yuan slapped the table with an expression asking him what he could do about it if he refused to hand her over.
“Sima Zhi Yuan, are you trying to pick a fight between both clans?” Jiang Yun Long sneered.
“Bring it on then, no one is afraid of you!” Sima Zhi Yuan said unconcernedly, “Old Bastard, didn’t you want to take over my Sima Clan? Bring it on! We won’t know who will have the last laugh!”
“Pfft, you better not regret it!”
“Regret? Since when did I, Sima Zhi Yuan, ever regret anything?” He rubbed his nose and flicked his booger into Jiang Yun Long’s teacup.
“Hmph, then you’ll have to bear with the Jiang Clan’s rage!” He stood up after he spoke and brought all the members of the Jiang Clan out.
Just as Sima You Yue wanted to meet Jiang Clan members after she heard them coming out, her arms were held and pulled into an alley at the corner.
“Grandmother?” Sima You Yue was curious who held her arm.
“You don’t have to waste your effort on this bunch of crazy dogs.” Huang Ying Ying continued, “They will hold their grip on you and not let go if you appear in front of them. Your Great Grandfather asked me to wait for you here.”
With this delay, when they went out, Jiang Clan’s members already left.
Sima You Yue went into the inn and saw Sima Zhi Yuan who was sitting on his chair sipping on tea relaxingly with no worry or anger on his face.
He waved at Sima You Yue when he saw them coming in, he said with all smiles, “You Yue, you’re back!”
“Great Grandfather, why are you guys back so early?” Sima You Yue walked over.
“We came back right after you left, there’s nothing to see.” Sima Zhi Yuan continued, “Where did you go, why are you back so late.”
“I went to see Aunt He.” Sima You Yue said.
“You went to see the sleeping beauty? How is she? Can you treat her?” Sima Zhi Yuan questioned.
At this point, Sima Liu Xuan came from the back and looked at her, wanting to know the answer too.
“Her condition is a little weird, it’s not something that I’ve seen before.” Sima You Yue continued, “I have yet to confirm her diagnosis, so I don’t dare to come up with a conclusion.”
“Even you can’t find out the cause?” Huang Ying Ying said in a soft voice curiously.
They doubted Sima You Yue’s medical expertise in the past, but after knowing her, they understood and acknowledged her strong medical expertise.
So if she didn’t know, then it was possible no one would know about the cause.
But everything had its reason, same for this disease. So it wasn’t that there wasn’t a reason, it was just that they hadn’t found it.
“I’ve a general idea of it, but I couldn’t confirm it.” Sima You Yue said.
“Why?” Sima Liu Xuan asked.
“The final conclusion can only be made after I get into her sea of consciousness. I’ve told Uncle He that he can make a decision after all those people tried.” Sima You Yue said.
With that said, everyone understood. Sea of consciousness was important to a Spirit Master and everyone knew about it, so it was only understandable that one had to give it a consideration.
“Let’s wait and see, maybe someone will be able to treat her!” Sima Zhi Yuan said.
“I thought about that too.” Sima You Yue continued, “If someone can treat her, then I won’t have to take this risk.”
“Scoff—— Those people, forget it, you’ll definitely be the one to do it.” Yin Lang said.
“How can you be so sure!” Sima You Yue rolled her eyes at him.
“Medical expertise has the most hope, but you saw all those people. No one will be better than her.” Yin Lang said affirmably. He didn’t say it, but he couldn’t even do it, how could others!
“I think so too.” Sima Zhi Yuan continued, “With that said, Madame He’s disease must be very serious.”
“Mm, maybe, that’s not a disease.” Sima You Yue said without knowing the reason.
“It’s not a disease? Then what is it?”
“I can’t confirm what it is now.” Sima You Yue continued, “I’ll tell you guys after I’ve confirmed it.”
Everyone looked at Sima You Yue curiously, wondering what disease Su Liu Nian had.
She would have said it if it was a common disease. It must be a weird disease if she said that.
“Great Grandfather, the Jiang Clan…”
“You don’t have to worry about the Jiang Clan, I’ve my own plans.” Sima Zhi Yuan continued, “Don’t worry, you’re my Great Granddaughter, nobody will dare to do anything to you.”
“Yes, You Yue, you don’t have to handle this.” Sima Xiu Qi continued, “You can only talk about all these when we all die!”
“That’s right. Even though you’re not in the family lineage yet, you’re a Sima Clan member no matter what, we won’t let the Jiang Clan touch you!”
Sima You Yue wanted to say something, but seeing how Sima Zhi Yuan responded, she felt warm in her heart.
Although most of them thought that she was the hope of the clan as she had good talents, at least they were protecting her now, even Great Grandfather and Grandfather protected her sincerely.
Sima You Yue went to watch the competition, and the top ten ranked would always be asked to leave after every match.
She noticed that during the Alchemy competition, Yin Su Su, E Qiu Yu and Yang Xi participated in the competition and got into the top three.
Yin Lang was confident in Yin Su Su and was certain that she would be the first in rank.
Sima You Yue watched as they were escorted away and thought that she might be He Zhen Zhang’s last hope.
Afterwhich, the last hope was also shattered, because He Zhen Zhang invited Sima You Yue himself.
“You Yue, I’ll need your help!” He Zhen Zhang greeted and bowed ninety degrees upon seeing Sima You Yue.
“Uncle He, please get up.” Sima You Yue walked forward to lift him up and asked, “Uncle He, have you thought about it?”
