Chapter 509: Swallow Ridge (Part 5)
“Big sister Yu Xi.” Dongfang Bing Ya saw Ye Yu Xi and greeted her.
“Big sister Yu Xi, why are you here today?” Mu Xue Qing excitedly said.
“You should know about the matter with Ji Chao Yuan.” When Ye Yu Xi sat down on a stool, the others also sat down. Bai Jin Yi had the discretion to go out, leaving only the sisters in the room.
Dongfang Bing Ya and Mu Xue Qing nodded. This had been spreading over the city all morning, so naturally they heard it from the people in their manor.
“Ying Xue and I will be staying with you for a few days. After the Alchemist Selection Meet is over, we’ll head to Bing Ya’s sect.”
Hearing what Ye Yu Xi said, Dongfang Bing Ya looked at Ye Yu Xi with gratitude.
“Master, master, where did you run off to?” While Ye Yu Xi was sitting in the room, Huo Ling’s voice came in her mind.
“Big sister Yu Xi, what is it?” Nangong Ying Xue noticed Ye Yu Xi falling into a daze.
“Eh, it’s nothing. The fatty is back from Swallow Ridge, he’ll come over in a bit.” Ye Yu Xi said this before telling Huo Ling where she was in her mind.
With the increase in strength from Ye Yu Xi and Huo Ling, their sensitivity had greatly increased. Huo Ling could already talk to her from over a hundred miles away.
“Did anything happen to you guys during the past few days?” Ye Yu Xi asked this while waiting for the fatty.
Mu Xue Qing and Dongfang Bing Ya shook their heads at the same time. They had been cultivating in their room the entire time, they hadn’t even left the manor.
While they were sitting there, there was a report from a servant waiting outside.
Dong, dong, dong!
“Young miss, there is a fatty outside that wants to come in. He says he is your friend…..”
Mu Xue Qing looked at Ye Yu Xi and saw her nod. The one that came had to be the fatty.
Mu Xue Qing gave the order, “Bring that person to the main hall.”
“Alright, let’s go to the mail hall. This is not the place to discuss things.” Mu Xue Qing looked over everyone.
They left the house together.
“Fatty, what is the situation?” As soon as they entered the hall, Ye Yu Xi impatiently asked this.
The fatty swallowed the tea in his mouth, “Boss, this matter is a bit troublesome. According to my speculations, Qing’er and the others are fine, but they have been caught by someone.”
The fatty described everything he found in the Swallow Ridge in detail to Ye Yu Xi.
After the fatty finished, the hall fell silent.
There was only the sound Ye Yu Xi’s jade finger tapping on the table.
“Fatty, there were no signs of anything being buried?” Ye Yu Xi softly asked.
The fatty shook his head and thought about it again, “No. I investigated the surrounding area, there were no signs of the dirt being turned.”
Ye Yu Xi let out a deep breath, “Let’s leave this matter for now. Fatty, go and meet up with Shi Qing and Ye Wen at the inn, we’ll avoid the spotlight for a few days. Qing’er and the others will be fine.”
After having the fatty meet up with Shi Qing, Ye Yu Xi and Mu Xue Qing discussed where they would sleep before heading to their rooms.
Ye Yu Xi sat in a daze inside the room as she kept analyzing the situation in her mind.
Qing’er and the others disappearing gave Ye Yu Xi a reminder. Her strength……was too weak!
She wasn’t strong enough that people would fear her from just hearing her name!
If she had been like she had been on earth. People would tremble when mentioning her name, so people wouldn’t have dared have any ideas about Qing’er and the others.
Ye Yu Xi tightly gritted her teeth and the teacup in her hand was turned into dust.
