Chapter 102: Third Brother’s Suspicions
Little Spirit never thought that Sima You Yue would change just like that and so did not avoid her hit. After he had been hit, he held his head and stared at Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue saw Little Spirit’s big round eyes stare at her aggrievedly and immediately felt a bud of affection. She hugged him and patted his head, saying, “Alright, aren’t I just anxious. Say it quickly, what other way is there?”
Little Spirit could feel Sima You Yue’s affection and after he heard what she said, frowned and said, “You’re so stupid; Pills can increase their inner strength but you can also increase their external strength, right?”
“External?” Sima You Yue stared, “You’re telling me to properare some Contracted Beasts for them?”
Little Spirit nodded, “You forgot about what Mo Sha gave to you? That’s a treasure, you know.”
“You’re talking about the Imperial Beast Art?” Sima You Yue thought about what he said. Using Imperial Beast Arts to tame Spirit Beasts were something that could increase the strength of both parties during the contract. Her eyes flashed with delight and pinched Little Spirit’s face, smiling as she said, “That’s right! I can help my old brothers to prepare some Spirit Beasts for them to form a contract with. Little Spirit, thanks for reminder!”
After speaking, she left a kiss on Little Spirit’s face and walked off with a satisfied smile.
“Leaving saliva on my face again!” Little Spirit shouted at her retreating back in protest but his eyes flashed with happiness.
Sima You Yue came outside and Little Roar cried out.
“Yue Yue, did you miss me?” Little Roar immediately came into Sima You Yue’s embrace as he said shamelessly.
Seeing her narcissistic Little Roar, Sima You Yue could not help but roll her eyes.
How could such a narcissistic Spirit Beast exist?!
“Little Roar, you can make other Spirit Beasts listen to your orders, right?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Depends on their rank, I guess.” Little Roar said, “It’s not problem with the majority of them. But if you found a Saint Beast then it’s not possible based on my current strength.”
“No need to order about a Saint Beast.” Sima You Yue waved her hands. Even if she wanted to control a Saint Beast, there wasn’t one available! “I just need the usual Spirit Beasts; I’m planning on preparing a few Contracted Spirit Beasts for my older brothers. Furthermore, they need to be ones that I can tame so their ranks can’t be that high.”
“Good idea!” Little Roar said, “How many do you want? I can go to Pu Luo Mountain Range to catch a few.”
Alright, Little Roar finally admitted that he was catching those Spirit Beasts.
“I have four brothers, so one for each.” Sima You Yue said, “Mm, I think it’s better for me to accompany you so I can see what ranks I can tame. I’ll work hard to help them prepare a few that are higher in rank.”
“Okay. When do you want to go?” Little Roar was extremely excited to abduct those Spirit Beasts. He could not wait when he heard that they were going to go and kidnap some Spirit Beasts.
“We can go now. Tomorrow we should be returning to the capital. We’ll see whether or not we can rush back by tomorrow morning.” Sima You Yue said.
“Tomorrow morning? That’s definitely impossible.” Little Roar said, “You’ll only be able to tame just one Spirit Beast but you want to choose a good one. Furthermore, you still want to try and see how high a rank of Spirit Beast you will be able to tame so you will definitely not rush. It will already be good enough if you can get it done in ten days!”
Sima You Yue thought about it. Little Roar was right, it looked like she had to find an excuse to leave.
After thinking about it for a long time, she left a letter and hugged Little Roar as she left the inn. She never thought that, the moment she exited the doors of the inn, she would see Sima You Ran waiting at the door.
“Third Brother? What are you doing here?”
Sima You Ran looked at Sima You Yue. That was definitely a familiar countenance, a familiar look, but…
“They’re all gone out to walk around, I was waiting here for you.” Sima You Ran smiled as he said.
“Waiting for me? What for?” Sima You Yue was a little worried. Could it be that this guy really noticed something?
Sima You Yue noticed her feelings reflected in her eyes and walked forward to ruffle her hair, said, “Are you interested in accompanying your Third Brother for a walk?”
“Third Brother wants to go window shopping?”
“No, I have some things I want to talk to you about.” Sima You Ran said.
“Oh, okay then. Then let’s take a walk.” Sima You Yue said.
She had always known that Sima You Ran was the smartest out of her four brothers. She was too different from the way she was in the past. At first, because they were rarely together, he did not notice anything. However, because they had been with each other a lot these few days, he had already realised some things.
She lowered her head as she walked with Sima You Ran, thinking about how she would explain about herself. She unknowingly followed him into a tea shop.
“Let’s go up and drink some tea.” Sima You Ran did not ask for Sima You Yue’s opinion before directly bringing her upstairs.
They let the shopkeeper prepare a private room that was facing the street as Sima You Yue sat opposite Sima You Ran, waiting for him to start talking.
“I heard that the tea here is not bad.” Sima You Ran poured a cup of tea while speaking.
Sima You Yue held the tea in her hands and took a sniff before drinking a mouthful. After that, she placed the cup down and said, “It’s really not bad.”
Sima You Ran watched Sima You Yue taste the tea indifferently. He squinted slightly, “Fifth Bro never knew how to drink tea in the past. Every time I gave you some nice tea, you would just gulp it down.”
“This is something that one needs to learn.” Sima You Yue’s heart started to pound; it was starting.
“It’s true that this needs to be learnt, but some things can’t be done just by learning for a bit. When I saw Fifth Bro save Grandfather, your actions were incomparably skilled. This is not something that you can learn overnight.” Sima You Ran said.
Sima You Yue pondered about it; he was right. Her medical skilled were something that she had gained in a short period of time. That day, when she had helped Sima Lie so acupuncture, she had shown that her skills were not something that was learnt in just three to five days.
“What is Third Brother trying to say?” Sima You Yue asked directly.
Sima You Ran never thought that Sima You Yue would turn from the passive recipient into the aggressor. He smiled and said, “I just wanted to know, who are you? Why do you want to pretend to be my Fifth Bro? Where is My Fifth Bro right now?”
Sima You Yue wanted to speak but Sima You Ran raised his hand, saying, “Don’t say that you are my Fifth Bro. What he was like in the past; what you are currently like… this is something I know extremely clearly. Saying that you are him, do you think that I will believe it?”
Sima You Yue pondered deeply she she lowered her head and drank a mouthful of tea.
“You better speak honestly or else it won’t be hard for me to get rid of you right now. Say it quickly, where is my Fifth Bro?”
Sima You Yue looked up. Seeing that Sima You Ran’s eyes were filled with anxiety, she let out a breath, saying, “Third Brother, it’s really me.”
“Impossible.” Sima You Ran refuted immediately.
“When I was four years old, I peed the bed and when you asked me to wake up, you happen to see me shoving my wet pants under the bed…”
Sima You Ran’s body trembled as he looked directly as Sima You Yue.
“When I was five, you brought me outside the capital, to a little tree to get some honeycombs. We were both attacked by bees and we didn’t know how but one of them entered your pants and stung your balls…”
“When I was ten, you liked a lady and it was me who encouraged you to go for her but you had given up in the end…”
“Also, when I was ten years old, it was my first time experiencing that monthly occurrence and you lost your head out of fear, thinking that I was going to die. It was you who helped me to look for that sanitary cloth and that servant girl almost mistakenly thought that you were up to no good…”
“Cough cough, don’t say anymore.” As she was speaking about that situation, Sima You Ran unknowingly cut Sima You Yue off.
Sima You Yue smiled, “All these are things that we promised that we would keep secret. All these years, no matter how hard it was, I never told anyone. Do you believe me now?”
