Chapter 140: Guild President
Every time that he thought he had recovered from the shock that Sima You Yue gave him, she would harshly give him another shock.
“Actually, it’s really nothing much. Alchemy and Beast Taming are reliant on Mental Strength and for some reasons, my mental strength is a bit stronger than the average person.” Sima You Yue said.
“Inhuman!” Fatty Qu spat out after quite a long time had passed.
“Agreed.” Ouyang Fei nodded.
“Correct.” Bei Gong Tang added on.
“I’m just thinking whether or not I should open Sima You Yue’s brain and take a look inside to see what it’s made of?” The ever cultured and refined Wei Zi Qi was so hurt by this that his intrepid nature was leaking out.
Sima You Yue looked speechlessly at the few of them. She knew that this was a bit perverse, however, they didn’t have to be shocked to this extent.
It just happened that the President and Vice president of the Beast Tamers Guild came in, cutting short their conversation.
“President, Granduncle.” Wei Zi Qi stood up and bowed towards the two of them, also indicating to Sima You Yue the identities of the people that just entered.
Sima You Yue also bowed towards them and the President waved his hands, allowing everyone to sit.
When he arrived at the master seat, the President became to size Sima You Yue up.
Sima You Yue calmly met the gaze of the President. While he was sizing her up, she was doing the same back to him.
Highly capable; this was the first impression that he had of the youth before him.
Confidence; that was the first impression she had of him.
“Fifth Young Master, I’ve already heard about what you did today. I was really immeasurably surprised by the fact that someone as young as you are a Great Beast Tamer Master.” The President touched his little beard, saying, “I wonder where Fifth Young Master hailed his Master from?”
“My Master has always lived in seclusion in the mountains. His life is low profile and does not like the turmoil of the outside world, so he does not wish for me to speak of him. I seek the President’s forgiveness.” Sima You Yue casually lied.
She had no Master, so how was she going to find one.
If you really wanted to talk about it, Mo Sha was the one who was guiding her through the Beast Taming process. Imperial Beast Arts was also a book he gave her, so if you really wanted to talk about it, he was considered half her master. However, his existence was definitely a secret, and there was no way for her to talk about it.
The President nodded his head. He knew that people like him had their own preferences. Some of them were flamboyant, some enjoyed laying low. Since she was unwilling to explain further, it would be best if he didn’t pester her.
“You said that you wanted to partner with the Beast Tamers Guild?”
Sima You Yue nodded, saying, “That’s right. President should know about what happened to my Sima Clan. Our current circumstances are not great and quite a few powers, being aware that my Grandfather and the others are no longer around, want to take over my Sima Clan. As a result, I want to partner with the Beast TamersGuild. You just have to supply us with Spirit Beasts for a period of time. As repayment, I will tame a set of Saint Beasts for the Beast Tamers Guild.
She once heard Wei Zi Qi say that the number of people who could tame Saint Beasts were few and they also took a long time to recover. As a result, she believed that this point of hers would be quite enticing to the Beast Tamer Master guild.
“We can do without taming so many Saint Beasts.” The President said, “I wish for you to enter our Beast Tamers Guild. When the time comes, the Beast Tamers Guild can provide whatever Spirit Beasts you need for free.”
“Enter the guild?” Sima You Yue was quite surprised as this was not within her plans at all. She didn’t want to be restricted either.
“That’s right, you can become an Elder in our guild. You usually don’t have to do anything, except that as and when, you can help the Beast Tamers Guild tame a few beasts and appear when the guild is in danger. That’s all.” The President said.
“But, I currently have no plans to enter any organisation. You should know as well, that I will leave the Dong Chen Kingdom in two years. This makes it hard for me to join you.” Sima You Yue rejected.
When Wei Zi Qi heard what Sima You Yue said, he was quite anxious for her. This position of an Elder was not something just anyone could obtain!
“Don’t be in a rush to reject the position just yet.” The President waved his hands, saying, “I naturally know about the issue of you leaving, but you’re still here right now. Furthermore, with you joining the Beast Tamers Guild, as long as you don’t do something that will let the guild down, you will always remain as an Elder of the guild. At that time, when you leave Dong Chen Kingdom, the Sima Clan will need a power to support it, am I right?”
Sima You Yue thought it over and the President was right. She was going to leave very soon. When the time came, it was possible that the Sima Clan’s foundation would not be stable yet and needed a strong power backing it. Furthermore, the Beast Tamers Guild was agreeing with these kind of conditions.
The people in the house all kept quiet, giving her time to think it over since this was a rather weighty decision.
After some time had passed, Sima You Yue nodded, saying, “Okay, I promise to join the Beast Tamers Guild.”
The people in the house all smiled and the President nodded his head. He took out a jade nameplate from his interspatial ring and said, “This is a nameplate representing your identity as an Elder of the Beast Tamers Guild; take it.”
Sima You Yue stood up and stepped forward, using both hands to receive the jade nameplate.
“Alright, you will be the Ninth Elder from now on.” The President said as he smiled.
“Just like this?” Sima You Yue blurted.
A power as great as this had increased in its number of elders… wouldn’t it need some kind of ceremony?
Seeing the confusion in her eyes, the President smiled wordlessly.
The Vice President who was beside them said, “We know you don’t like these kind of things so we decided to do away with them. When the time comes, we just have to announce to everyone that you are our Elder and that will be enough.”
“Many thanks to the President and Vice President.” Sima You Yue kept the nameplate into her interspatial ring and turned around to return to her own seat.
“With regards to the Spirit Beasts, when the time comes, we’ll just get the Guild’s In Charge to settle it. He will arrange everything for you.” The President said.
“Many thanks to the President.”
Ever since the came back from the Beast Tamers Guild, Sima You Yue still felt extremely mystified. She had actually become an Elder of the Beast Tamers Guild.
“You don’t know this, but for the average person who wants to become an Elder, they first have to go through many layers of tests and selections. Even after they have been confirmed, they have to go through three rounds of ceremonies. It’s extremely troublesome.” Wei Zi Qi explained, “I think that you’re the only one who would be able to receive this kind of special treatment.”
“Hey hey, it’s best not to have it.” Sima You Yue said, “I have to thank you for today. If it wasn’t for you, just being trying to meet the President would have given me enough headache.” Sima You Yue said.
“What are you being so formal for.” Wei Zi Qi smiled, “That’s right, the four of us will return to the Academy first. If you need anything, just get some men to look for us.”
“Mm. I will.”
After separating from them, she returned back to the Sima Residence. From today onwards, her name would have already been spread far and wide. Very quickly, so would the news of her becoming an Elder of the Beast Tames Guild. The problem of supplying Spirit Beasts should also have been settled. What she had to do now was to go back to discuss with the steward on their next course of action.
She was still used to walking out the main entrance of the past route. It was only when she looked back that she realised the large gate was no longer there.
She lingered in front of the place where the large gate used to be. Thinking of how the General’s residence had been here for a long time, she felt her heart ache.
Grandfather, Brothers… wait for You Yue, I will definitely save you…
