The three of them reached the exit very quickly, and Sima You Yue exited the place with a flash of her body. After that, she split from Little Roar and retreated to the side while he ran out the exit, stretched out a paw and placed it on the barrier. Afterwards, the barrier slowly transformed into a blue circle.
“Aunty, you can come up now.”
Yin Lan knew that there was a barrier around this place, and was initially wondering how they would bypass the barrier. She didn’t expect that Little Roar would be able to render it useless so easily.
Because they had been confined underground all this time, Sima You Yue got them to close their eyes before coming out. After that, she took out two strips of cloth and got them to cover their eyes.
“Bei Gong is currently at the main entrance. We’re going out now.” Sima You Yue said.
Although they had their eyes covered, Yin Lan’s perception was not weak at all. She led Bei Gong Hang and followed after Sima You Yue without being hindered at all.
They walked outside the courtyard and saw Wu Lingyu and the Goshawk king waiting outside for them. There were Bei Gong clansmen strewn on the ground.
Sima You Yue smiled, “Thank you guys.”
“Let’s go. There’s a huge ruckus outside.” Wu Lingyu said.
The Bei Gong clan’s main entrance was really rowdy since half an hour ago. Those who were watching the show were heartily discussing the gossip that they had just found out, causing the Bei Gong clan’s reputation to fall greatly.
Bei Gong Tang had long since prepared well with everyone, and followed Sima You Yue’s instruction to demand for her family. Her vgroup came in a huge wave and waited outside the Bei Gong clan’s main entrance.
Bei Gong Tang stood outside the main door and looked at the two words ‘Bei Gong’, with a thousand things running through her mind.
The number of times that she had walked past that door, could be counted on one hand. When she was three years old, her mother, who was Bei Gong Ao’s wife at the time, brought her out to walk twice. She had never walked past this door ever since Gu Yun Er came in. Even when she escaped, she had used the back door.
The word ‘family’ was a tender one, but there was none of that tenderness here.
The guard saw a group of people standing outside the main gate and demanded coldly, “Who are you?”
Bei Gong Tang collected herself and said to the guard, “I want to see Bei Gong Ao!”
“Who are you? Is our Young Master Ao someone whose name you can say so easily?” That guard said aggressively.
“Who I am is not a question for you to ask. Get your ass in there and give a report that I will shatter your stone lions if I do not get a reply in ten minutes.” Bei Gong Tang said, glancing at the two stone lions guarding the main gate.
“How arrogant, that you actually dare to throw your weight around the Bei Gong Clan’s main door. Men, capture them!” One of the guards cried out.
The guards were not that powerful to begin with, and were merely people at the Initial Divine King rank .They were all beaten flat within two minutes.
When they heard the commotion outside, a few people came rushing out the main door, coming face to face with Bei Gong Tang and the others.
“What’s going on?” A male who looked middle aged, came out the main door. When he saw the guards beaten and lying on the floor, he furrowed his eyebrows and was about to berate the other party. However, he was stunned when he saw that it was Bei Gong Tang, “Young Miss Tang?”
The one who came out was the Bei Gong clan’s steward. He would naturally know who Bei Gong Tang was. She escaped when she was nineteen, so her appearance wouldn’t change anymore. Although her appearance was more mature, she still looked similar to the way she did the year she escaped.
“Steward Wan, it’s great that you’re here. I’ll have to trouble you to pass a message to Bei Gong Ao. Tell him that Bei Gong Tang has returned, and I am here to take my mother and brother back.” Bei Gong Tang said.
“Young Miss Tang?” Those who had gathered to watch the show had initially thought that she was just here to make trouble. However, it didn’t seem like it was the case!
Steward Wan gave an order to the people beside him, then the person quickly rushed to make a report. He cupped his fist in salute to Bei Gong Tang, saying, “I never thought that Young Miss Tang would still be alive. Now that you’re home, how could you stay outside? Please follow this young servant inside. You father and the others have really missed you all these years.”
Bei Gong Tang smiled icily, saying, “You all really missed me, all right. It’s just that only you know how terrifying your longing for me was. Since I managed to escape that year, I never once thought of entering your main door again.”
“Young Miss Tang, even if you break off the bone, the tendon remains connected. No matter what, you still remain as the Young Miss of our Bei Gong clan. Although you had done many bad things back then, the clan has never blamed you. We even wished for your return. Now, you’re causing a ruckus here like this. Have you ever spared a thought for the clan?” Steward Wan asked.
“Ha ha…” Bei Gong Tang looked at Steward Wan, “Steward Wan, you are really able to speak well with that mouth of yours. You can even change black into white. You haven’t lost the talent you had in spinning the lies that you spouted that year. I don’t want to waste words with you. I have come here today to rescue my mother and brother.”
“Young Miss Tang, I’m afraid that this isn’t possible. Your mother and brother had already passed on a few years ago.” Steward Wan said broken heartedly, “Before they died, they even told Young Master Ao that if you were to return one day, we would definitely have to take care of you. Since you’ve come back today, how could you not enter the clan?”
If she did not know beforehand that Yin Lan and her brother were still alive, by looking at his broken hearted expression, Bei Gong Tang might have really believed him. Regardless, those who were watching the events unfold had fallen for it.
“Young Miss Tang… She shouldn’t be the daughter called Bei Gong Tang, that the Yin Clan’s young miss had given birth to after marrying Bei Gong Ao, right? Didn’t they say that she had run away after doing something wrong because she didn’t want to be punished? Why has she come back today?”
“Didn’t you hear? She’s asking for her mother and younger brother? Sigh it’s a pity that they are already dead. It’s no use coming back now.”
“If she had come back earlier, she might have been able to meet them.”
“Bei Gong Tang stood ten metres away from the Bei Gong clan. No matter what Steward Wan said, she refused to move. She refused to enter, causing Steward Wan to rage internally.
He never expected Bei Gong Tag to come running back after being gone for so many years. She was even demanding for her family so forcefully. Initially, he had thought her to be a little brat. Once she entered the door, wouldn’t the end result be as whatever they chose to make it? Whether they kill or confine her, the public would just believe whatever message they passed on. However, if she refused to enter, their plans were only a pipe dream.
After a short moment, a few more people came out of the Bei Gong clan. Seeing the number of people around them who were pointing at the Bei Gong Clan, Bei Gong Xiong who was among them, had an extremely dark expression.
“What are you doing yelling outside? You better get in here and talk!”
Bei Gong Tang looked at Bei Gong Xiong. Even after so many years, this grandfather of hers had not changed one bit. He was still that arrogant and condescending. She had treated his words as a fart, letting it drift by in the wind. She didn’t even give half of a response.
“Bei Gong Tang, as the Young Miss of the fourth generation, you might be subjected to the family laws if you continue on!” An elder berated.
“Didn’t you strike me off the clan’s name list long ago? I am no longer the Young Miss of your clan, but you still dare to use the family law on me?” Bei Gong Tang looked at them incredulously. She said, word by word, “I’ve already said this. Ever since I escaped from your Bei Gong Clan, I have never once thought of stepping back in. I have come here today to get my mother and brother. You better hand them over to me. Otherwise, I will make the Bei Gong clan pay the price in blood, even if I die in the process!”
