Chapter 113: Nothing better to do so I’ll go and disgust you
The whispers that came from the surroundings caused Wu Lin and the others to feel slightly embarrassed.
In all honesty, it was just the words of the First Prince. The Alchemist Guild might really not care about it at all. However, doing this so obviously under all these watchful eyes, the Alchemist Guild would definitely not dare to be so openly arrogant even if everyone secretly felt that way.
“We’ll walk in.” Wu Lin flung his sleeves and walked towards the entrance of the Palace while ignoring everyone around. He looked at Sima You Yue at the corner of his eyes as he walked past her.
He used to be a waste that was famous for being a brainless idiot, so was what he said just now intentional or not?
Sima You Yue smiled at him with an expression as if nothing had happened.
“Hmph, the Waste still dares to come out in public.” That white clothed lady was extremely ticked off with Sima You Yue and glared hatefully at her when she walked past her.
As Murong An walked together with the white clothed lady, he saw that she was irritated and comforted her, “There’s no point in bickering with him.”
It was only when she heard what she said that she remembered that he was the one who had caused the death of the soul of the original owner of this body. Because she hadn’t seen him in a long time recently, she almost forgot about him!
She smiled coldly in her heart when she remembered and she smiled at him while shouting, “Young Master Murong, how come I didn’t see you with Miss Nalan today? Didn’t you say back then that you were already at the stage where you were going to discuss about marriage? When are you going to invite us over to participate in the wedding celebrations!”
It was as if Murong An was struck by lightning as he immediately saw the woman beside him go crazy. There was the sound of a rock hitting something before a few people continued on their way.
It was only after the one who was waiting for the people from the Alchemist Guild to enter the palace had disappeared that Sima You Yue began to bellow with laughter.
“Fifth Bro, you were too cool just now. You defeated the Alchemist Guild with just a few words. Did you see that Wu Lin and Shi Lei, their faces were so ugly that they looked like stones picked from a pile of manure.”
Her three other brothers laughed, however, their reactions were not as exaggerated as Sima You Le’s.
Because of Sima Lie, the relationship between the Sima Clan and the Alchemist Guild was never good. Every time they saw them, they would face each other with biting sarcasm. Today, whatever Sima You Yue did was extremely gratifying.
“Sigh- You are so mischievous.” Sima You Ran patted Sima You Yue’s shoulders, saying, “Let’s go in.”
“Hehe, let’s go then.” Sima You Yue smiled.
“Have a safe trip, Fifth Young Master.” That Team Leader stepped forward and cupped his hands towards Sima You Yue, saying, “Thank you very much for your earlier help, Fifth Young Master.”
Sima You Yue waved her hands, saying, “It’s not like I particularly stepped in for your sake, it’s just that those people ticked me off. There’s a carriage that just arrived, you can do your thing.”
The Team Leader turned back and there really was a Beast-drawn carriage that just came over. He nodded towards Sima You Yue and the rest as he turned around to resume his duty.
“Let’s go in quickly. Grandfather should be waiting for us inside by this time.” Sima You Ming said.
Sima You Yue walked inside with them. Thinking about the lady that was with Murong An just now, she asked, “Big Brothers, do you all know who the woman who was with Shi Lei and the others was?”
“That’s Shi Lei’s daughter, her name is Mo Li. I heard that she became a first ranked alchemist even before reaching the age of twenty. They say that she has already entered the threshold of second rank alchemy and is very talented in refining pills. She’s the most precious person that is being nurtured by the Alchemist Guild.
Sima You Ran replied.
“Tsk, seeing how she is, she’ll definitely have the same character as her dad!” Sima You Le spat, “Furthermore, whatever talent that she has, when compared to Fifth Bro, can be thrown a few hundred streets away!”
“Fourth Brother, don’t’ say anymore.” Sima You Ming told Sima You Le to stop in case he accidentally blabbed it out and let others find out the secret.
Sima You Le held his tongue as everyone entered the palace gates.
This palace was very similar to the palace in the ancient days, but the decorations were even more grand and majestic. After looking at them for awhile, Sima You Yue felt that, actually, it was also a very strange thing of this world, so the decorations had to be strange as well.
After entering the palace, the palace maid came to lead the way. Seeing that Sima You Yue was looking around, she asked, “Now that everyone has already come to the palace for the banquet, there will be a huge play held after the banquet. Your Lordship can go to the palace at that time to take a look. We have to go to the Banquet Hall now, though.”
Sima You Le patted Sima You Yue’s shoulders, saying, “Is this Fifth Bro’s first time coming into the palace? It’s hard not to be curious the first time you come here. The first time I came here, I was so excited!”
“I know, when you came back, you pulled my hand and talked about it for half a day.” Sima You Yue rolled her eyes.
“Cough cough, but Fifth Bro, you’re so much calmer than me the first time I came.” Sima You Le laughed twice and said.
The palace maid brought them to the main hall and there were already many people inside.
There were low tables placed on both sides of the hall and many different types of fruit were placed on those low tables along with some snacks.
Those who had arrived early had already sat on their seats, eating those fruits as they chatted casually, making friends with those around them. Sounds of laughter echoed through the main hall.
The Palace maid brought them to the seats allocated to the General ‘s Residence, saying, “Young Masters, these are the seats for those from the General’s residence. Allow this servant to take her leave.”
Sima You Yue took a look. Their seats were pretty near the front and it looked like the seats were allocated according to status.
Whether by accident or intention, the seats for the Nalan Clan were directly opposite the ones for the Sima Clan. It was still early right now so those from the Nalan Clan had yet to arrive and that table merely held the name place for the Nalan Clan.
The Alchemist Guild’s seat was above the Nalan Clan’s seat, and one could only see that Mo Li and Murong An sat on their seats while Wu Lin and Shi Lei were nowhere to be seen.
However, it made sense when one thought about it because they were extremely high in status; how could one expect them to wait here together with the general populace.
Seeing that Sima You Yue and the others had gone to their seats, Shi Mo Li glared at her hatefully. It seemed as if she was still harboring a grudge over what happened at the palace gate.
Sima You Yue glanced over at them and didn’t seem to care much about that hate-filled glare. She raised her little pinky to the sky and stuck it into her nose, pretending to pick out snot and flicking it to the front.
“So disgusting!” Shi Mo Li was super disgusted by what Sima You Yue had done as she immediately looked away.
“Tch-” Sima You Yue dug her left nostril and was considering digging her right one , but when she saw that Shi Mo Li was no longer looking at her, she decided to let it go.
“How did this Murong An end up sitting in the same place as the Alchemist Guild?”
The people beside were whispering about this and the content immediately caught her attention.
She was curious as well, how did this Murong An end up with the Alchemist Guild?
“Oh my, didn’t you know? This Murong An said that he had already hailed Great Master Shi as a master and started learning Alchemy.” Another person replied.
“Really? How come I never heard Murong An say that he wanted to learn Alchemy before? That Great Master Shi has his sights set so high, how would he be willing to accept him?”
“Hehe, you all wouldn’t know about this.” The other person cut in, saying, “This Murong An is already taken to be the son in law that is going to marry in. See how those two are inseparable? I’m afraid it’s only a matter of time that they will be married.”
“Didn’t they say that he and Nalan Clan’s Nalan Lan were a pair?”
“Your information is so outdated. Whatever Murong An and Nalan Lan had is so old news. I don’t know who arranged the seats tonight, but this Alchemist Guild is seated so near the Nalan Clan, hehe…”
Sima You Yue turned her sights onto the seats opposite her. It was unknown what the faces of the people from the Nalan Clan would be like when they saw Murong An. Just thinking about it was so exciting!
