Chapter 509: Qin Mo
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
The person outside had charisma, but it was not shining like the sun like before. His face held no trace of a smile, only traces of pain. His entire person had become a lot colder.
Seeing that the other person was staring at her so intently, she didn’t know what to say. Acknowledge him? Or not?
“You’re actually back.” Qin Mo didn’t wait for her to speak. He declared outright, “Don’t deny it. You Yue, your eyes have immediately given you away.”
When she heard him say this, Sima You Yue sighed and stepped aside to let him in. Then, she closed the door, turned around and looked at him.
“How did you know it was me?”
“You left a watermark behind in Innumerable Green City. Only the two of us know the meaning of that mark. Nobody else does.” Qin Mo looked at Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue thought back, and she had truly used the tea on the table to write something back when she was in the Memory Restaurant in Innumerable Green City. She never thought that he would know about this.
“Aren’t you afraid that you’ve gotten the wrong person?” She shrugged, anxious suddenly.
“When I saw your appearance, I was a little uncertain. However, I heard that Third Mo was with you, so I was certain that it was you.” Qin Mo was a little uncomfortable. She had come back, but he wasn’t the first one who met her.
“How did you know I was here? Are you here to participate in the auction as well?” She walked over and sat beside him, pouring him some tea.
“The people from the Innumerable Green City sent news to me when I was in closed door cultivation. When I emerged, I heard the news and immediately rushed over, but you had left. After that, because of some things, I got held up but then came here when I heard you had come.” Qin Mo replied as he drank a sip of tea.
Sima You Yue knew that he would definitely come here to meet her once he got the news, but she never thought that he would be so direct.
“You… have you been well these years?” She asked.
“Not too bad.” Qin Mo did not speak in detail about how he had been, but Sima You Yue knew at a glance. He had definitely not been well. At the very least, he had not been happy.
Sima You Yue saw that he unconsciously released an ice cold aura. It was completely different from the person she used to know. She immediately felt heartache as she said with a smile, “Did you know that I had killed a person below who had the same name as you. However, it was a female.”
Qin Mo saw the smile in her eyes and knew that she was smiling because the person had the same name as he did. He unconsciously rolled his eyes like he would do before.
He knew about the person she spoke about. It was an imperial concubine in the Yi Lin continent. When he was in closed door cultivation, he had already dug out every single bit of news about her.
However, when he thought of how the female had the same surname as he did, he was rather uncomfortable.
“But at that time, my soul was injured and I couldn’t remember the events of my death. That was why I didn’t know you had the same surname. If I had known, I might have let her off.” She joked.
Qin Mo saw the way she was smiling and stretched forth a hand to place it on her forehead. He asked, “Have you had enough of smiling?”
“Nope.” Sima You Yue said with a smile. Seeing that his expression darkened, she finally stopped.
“Didn’t you say that your character is different than it was in the past? Why do I feel like nothing has changed? You’re still as playful as before.” Qin Mo looked at her helplessly.
Sima You Yue’s eyes flashed with a glint of hurt as well, “Seeing old friends like you really makes me happy.”
Qin Mo kept looking at her and naturally saw the pain in her eyes. He comforted her, “All these years, I have continued to strengthen the clan. If you want, we can exterminate the Zong Zheng Clan and the Yin Yang Palace anytime. We can take revenge for your family.”
Sima You Yue shook her head, saying, “It’s not the time right now. The Sage Pavilion is backing the Yin Yang Palace. If we exterminate them, I doubt the Sage Pavilion will sit idly by. Dear Feng and I are not strong enough yet. We have to build our forces up slowly if we want to take revenge. Also, in these few years, I have to heal Dear Feng.”
“The last time I met him, I found that his body was a little strange. However, he wouldn’t let me get my men to check him. So, I don’t know much about it. What’s wrong with him?”
Sima You Yue told him everything about Ximen Feng. After listening, his handsome eyebrows furrowed once again.
“I’ll get my men to think of something.” Qin MO said.
“Alright.” Sima You Yue didn’t reject him. For Ximen Feng’s life, even if it was a debt, she would be willing to owe it. Especially since it was one owed to him. “We plan on looking for the principal of the Heavenly Sect to try. Help me think of an idea as well. Right now, Dear Feng’s condition is such that I dare not say that I can’t trouble you to help me.”
“I’d only be mad if you really said it.” Qin Mo.
“Okay.” Sima You yue smiled. She didn’t continue the conversation, “You’ve become a lot stronger these years! You’ve grown by at least one rank!”
“Yeah, I encountered some fortuitous encounters and grown quite a bit.” Qin Mo said.
“Knock knock knock-”
The knock on the door interrupted the two of them. Sima You Yue stood up and opened the door to see Wu Lingyu standing outside.
Without waiting for her to speak, he lifted up his hand and showed her a list, saying, “The list that the Xuan Yuan Pavilion has sent over. I happened to be downstairs, so I brought it up.”
Sima You Yue secretly rolled her eyes, then stepped aside to let him in. She introduced them, “This is my senior, Wu LIngyu. The Holy Son of the Sage Pavilion. This is Qin Mo. My good friend.”
“The eldest young master of the Qin clan of the South. Your name is widespread.” Wu Lingyu walked over and sat where Sima You Yue sat earlier.
Qin Clan’s Qin mo. He wasn’t a famous person before, but more people started to know about him when he opened many delicious restaurants. However, he was only more famous in the circle for food. Recently though, news of what he had been doing started to go around. An idle young master slowly turned into a powerful young master of the Qin clan. His name filled the south and started to spread to other regions.
“The name of the Holy son of the Sage Pavilion has been spread for ages. I’ve always wanted the chance to meet you. Who would have thought we would meet here today.” Qin Mo glanced at Wu Lingyu, but his eyes showed none of the sincerity that was heard in his words.
One of them was the Holy Son from the renowned Ancient Primordial Lands while the other was a power that rose in the later years in the south. The two of them set a fire ablaze the moment they met.
Sima You Yue didn’t notice the tension between the two of them. At this moment, she was more interested in the things in the auction.
“What’s caught your eye?” Wu Lingyu asked.
“Yeah.” Sima You Yue nodded. She pointed at a medicinal ingredient, “I want to suppress the energy in Dear Feng’s body using this. I need quite a bit of ingredients. I have most of them, but some are rather strange. This braided jade happens to be an ingredient I’m missing.”
“We just need to obtain it when the time comes.” Qin Mo said.
“It’s rare for this item to appear even once in ten thousand years. I was still worrying about it, but I never thought we could get it here.” Sima You cried out with joy, “We have to get this item no matter what!”
