Chapter 302: Brothers and sisters of the Lu Clan
However, once they stood in front of a poor dilapidated house, they were unable to see how this was once a glorious powerful family.
This was a tiny house, like one of the ones in the Sima residence. It didn’t even have a door plate.
Lu Yuan saw the shock in their eyes and felt a bit helpless. However, he still said politely, “Everyone, this is my house. We can all enter.”
They walked in and a sixteen to seventeen year old girl who looked very similar to Lu Yuan came out from inside the house. When she saw Lu Yuan bring in these eight strangers in, she said with surprise, “Big Brother, who are they?”
“This is my twin sister, Lu Yun  .” Lu Yuan introduced before looking around the quiet house and asked, “Sister, these are some friends I met outside. They have come to see second brother. Where is Eldest brother?”
Lu Yun’s face fell as she answered, “Eldest brother saw that we were unable to find the two hundred year old rhinoceros grass, so he left early this morning and said he was going outside the city to look for it.”
Lu Yuan was flustered the moment he heard it. He said, “Don’t tell me that Eldest Brother really went to that place?! How can that be”!
“What’s wrong?” Fatty Qu asked when he saw that Lu Yuan was so anxious.
“Eldest Brother and I bumped into a stalked of two hundred year old rhinoceros grass when we went to the mountain in the past. However, that was beside a fifth ranked divine beast’s den. If one is not careful, they will disturb that Divine Beast. At that time, there’s no need to talk about digging out the rhinoceros grass. Even eldest brother’s life will be in danger!” Lu Yuan explained.
Lu Yun was immediately stunned when she heard it. Her hands flew to cover her mouth and her eyes were brimming with tears. She turned to Lu Yuan and asked, “Big Brother, how can this be! Nothing will really happen to Eldest Brother right?”
“It hasn’t been long since you’ve gone out. He can’t have gotten far. You all can go and stop him now.” Sima You Yue said.
“We won’t make it in time. Eldest Brother has two contracted beasts, and they’re both fast spirit beasts. I’ve been gone for an entire afternoon, I’m afraid that he would have already left Saint City. Once he’s outside, he has a flying beast and he would already have reached the mountain by the time we catch up to him.” Lu Yuan said anxiously, “Forget it, I have to look for Eldest Brother whether or not it is possible. Second Brother is already injured, I can’t let Eldest brother get injured as well.”
At this moment, the door to a hideout opened and a male with a pale face walked out. His hand was in a cast, and he was precisely the Lu Clan’s second eldest, Lu Ming.
“Third Brother, quickly go and stop Eldest brother, you must bring him back here safely no matter what.” Lu Ming used his left hand to prop himself up on the wall as he looked at Lu Yuan.
“Second Brother, your body is so weak, how could you come out!” Lu Yun went up to support Lu Ming.
“I’m fine. Third Brother, quickly go!” Lu Ming called out anxiously.
“I’m going now.” Lu Yuan replied as he turned to Sima You Yue and the others, saying, “I’m really sorry, I…”
“There are many Divine Beasts that are even stronger than Spirit Paragons there. If you go to where your eldest brother is, alone, who knows what dangers you will encounter.” Sima You Yue said.
“Even so, I have to go! I have to get my brother back even if it costs me my life!” Lu Yuan proclaimed.
“Let’s do this, Eldest Brother, go with them.” Sima You Yue turned to Sima You Ming and the others and said.
“Okay.” SIma You Ming and the other brothers had the same feelings. If they let him go alone, they might lose both the brothers to the mountain.
“There’s no need. It’s so dangerous there…” Lu Yuan had yet to finish speaking before he was interrupted.
Sima You Le went up immediately pulled him, saying, “If you don’t go now, it may really be too late.”
Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi tagged along as well, leaving only Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang.
“I wonder how I should address the two of you?” Lu Ming walked over with the assistance of Lu Yun.
“Sima You Yue.”
“Bei Gong Tang.”
Lu Ming looked at Sima You Yue and asked, “You’re from the Sima Clan?”
“Right.” Sima You yue said.
“What do you all want to do here today?” Lu Ming’s expression was rather ugly as he said, “I already told you that our inheritance was broken off long ago. Even if you came, you wouldn’t be able to find anything. Or are you all planning to move our things away like those people do?”
“Huh?” Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang were similarly stunned. They asked, “What do you mean move things away?”
“Didn’t you come to move our things?” Lu Yun asked while looking at the two of them.
“No, we were at the free market when we bumped into Lu Yuan. We saw that he was going to buy a rhinoceros grass that was not mature enough, so we just gave him a little reminder.” Sima You Yue said, “After that, he asked me for Crimson Rhinoceros Grass and I happened to take an interest towards your injury and wanted to come over to take a look.”
Lu Ming observed Sima You Yue for a moment and said, “That’s right. The younger generation of the Sima Clan doesn’t have you, did you both just arrive in Saint City?”
Sima You Yue didn’t expect that Lu Ming would guess it so quickly and nodded, saying, “That’s right. We just arrived yesterday. We’ve never been here before.”
“Then it is better for you to leave quickly. The Sima Clan has always been at odds with the Alchemist Guild. If you continue to stay with us, we might affect your relationship with each other.” Lu Ming said.
“Are you talking about your situation with Li Mu?”
Sima You Yue was really not flustered at all. She had evaluated this dilapidated building and it was really simple and crude. It really contained traces of things being removed. Looks like things had been taken away rather recently.
“You know Li Mu?” Lu Ming was quite surprised as he said with understanding, “That’s right, Third Brother must have told you about me already.”
“Not really, we already met on Dragon Reflection Mountain. We have already beat up the talents of the Alchemist Guild so our relationship can’t be that great.” Sima You Yue said, “Are you not going to invite us in to sit?”
Lu Ming looked at Sima You Yue with some surprise as he immediately said, “Two of you, please.”
They came to a guest hall, and the inside was left with only a few stools.
“Our things have been taken away by others, bear with us for a it. Fourth Sister, pour some tea for our guests.” Lu Ming saw that Sima You Yue and the others were not arrogant at all, so they should not mind something like this.
Lu Yun remained where she was, her face turning a bit red. She said in a small voice, “Second Brother, we no longer have any tea in our house.”
Lu Ming was shocked and he felt a bit bitter but he still said with a smile, “I’m really sorry, Eldest Brother and the others have emptied our house in order to help treat my wounds.”
“No problem. We did not come here to partake our your tea. Just give us two cups of water, it will be the same.” Sima You Yue said.
Actually, she did not want to drink water. But to avoid causing them any embarrassment, she said this.
“Alright, please wait a moment.” Lu Yun left while saying.
Sima You Yue looked at Lu Ming’s right hand, saying, “I heard that Li Mu’s flame is different from ordinary flames, and the wounds it causes doesn’t heal even with a month’s time?”
“That’s right.” Lu Yuan nodded, “Every time I eat a pill, my arm gets better for a while, but it quickly reverts back into this state.”
“Then, can I take a look at your arm?” Sima You Yue asked.
