Chapter 55: “So It Was Actually Her!”
“Sima You Yue?!”
“It’s really you?”
Many of them from her class were outside the door and were incomparably surprised when they saw Sima You Yue standing at the main gate.
“You’ve really returned alive! I knew that it was impossible for someone like you to die.” Meng Ting glanced at Sima You Yue and although these words did not sound that nice, Sima You Yue still heard a trace of concern within them.
Wow, this one actually was concerned about her? Then it should not have been her who instigated He Qiu Zhi to cause her harm?
She glanced at the He Qiu Zhi who was standing beside and He Qu Zhi subconsciously took a step back, thinking that she wanted to expose her.
However, Sima You Yue, contrary to her expectations, smiled and ignored her. She looked at everyone else and asked, “How come you have all gathered here?”
“We’re all here to ballot.” Meng Ting replied.
Looking at Sima You Yue’s confusion, the class monitor Shen An walked over. He said, “In this period of time, we are beginning to receive assignments from school. Now we are going to ballot to get the assignment for our groups.”
Sima You Yue thought of how Sima You Ran and Sima You Le seemed to always go out for assignments and nodded her head after understanding clearly. She unexpectedly asked: “Then, do I have to go with you all to ballot?”
Shen An shook his head and replied, “You don’t have to ballot, your group has already decided on its assignment.”
“Regarding that, you should go back and ask Wei Zi Qi and the rest then you will know.”
“Oh, okay.” Sima You You nodded her head. Since that was what he had said, all she needed to do was to go back and ask. “Then I will return back, you all can carry on balloting first.”
After she said this, she glanced over at He Qiu Zhi, who was standing silently as the side, once again. She smiled maliciously for a moment before leaving.
“Let’s go, we will go over to where Master Feng is.” Shen An urged everyone to walk towards Feng Zhi Xing’s office. When He Qiu Zhi saw everyone leave, she looked towards Sima You Yue’s back and thought of the gaze Sima You Yue had when he was leaving. Her heart suddenly rose to her throat.
She was definitely sure that when Sima You Yue was entering the teleportation, he had confirmed that she the one who had pushed him. Looking at how he was not exposing her right now, he definitely was plotting something evil.
Thinking of how the General’s residence was backing Sima You Yue, she was so afraid that she broke out into a cold sweat. If they came to seek revenge, she definitely would not even be enough for him to play with.
No way, she definitely had to find them to protect her!
A mere moment had passed before He Qiu Zhi’s heart started to waver and falter.
“Qiu Zhi, aren’t you coming?” Meng Ting shouted when she saw He Qiu Zhi just standing there.
“Coming.” He Qiu Zhi raised her skirt slightly and chased after them.
Sima You Yue returned back to her courtyard and immediately headed towards Fatty Qu’s house.
“Fatty Qu, Fatty Qu!” Sima You Yue pounded upon Fatty Qu’s door. Wei Zi Qi, who was at the side, was the one who opened his door first and came out.
“Oh, you didn’t go out?” Sima You Yue looked at Wei Zi Qi and said, “You will do as well. I have something to ask you.”
Farry Qu opened his door and he massaged his eyes and looked at Sima You Yue, asking, “You Yue, what’s up?”
Sima You Yue looked over at Wei Zi Qi then entered Fatty Qu’s house. Wei Zi Qi also followed them in.
“Looking at how you’re shouting with such anxiety, it must be that you’re missing me?” Fatty Qu saw the state that Sima You Yue was in and smiled as he said.
By this point, He was already familiar with Sima You Yue so he knew he was not the lovestruck fool that he heard about from the rumors and was not afraid of joking with him in this way. What he didn’t know was that the rumors were not wrong, it was just that the original spirit in the body had changed.
Sima You Yue found a stool to sit down and said, “I just went to find Master Feng when I bumped into Shen An and the rest at the school gates. They said they were going to choose their assignments and told me to come back and ask you all. What is going on?”
“Oh, you’re talking about this. I would have forgotten it if you didn’t bring it up.” Fatty Qu came to sit beside Sima You Yue and said, “Our school spends half the time studying and another half of the time carrying out assignments and cultivating. Do you know about this?”
Sima You Yue nodded.
“After two more months, it will be our turn to carry out assignments. When that time comes, we will have to choose to execute a certain mission from the school. There are easy and difficult ones, so we have to ballot to decide.” Fatty Qu continued to explain.
“Then why do I not have to ballot?” Sima You Yue saw that everyone else had to go but she didn’t, so she felt a bit strange.”
“Hehe, because this mission is completed in groups. One living quarters is one group, so you belong to this group.” Fatty Qu looked over at Wei Zi Qi, then said to Sima You Yue with some regret, “Because we didn’t know you were going to come back, so when Master Feng said that we had to choose mission, we chose the mission with the greatest difficulty, which is also the only grade A mission of the first years.”
“So you all don’t have to go and ballot? And because I am in the same living quarters as you all, I have to go along with you to execute this mission? Sima You Yue asked the two of them.
Wei Zi Qi and Fatty Qu nodded their heads.
“This mission is quite difficult. This… Since you’ve just come back, you can choose not to come along with us.” Wei Zi Qi said tactfully since he thought Sima You Yue thought that Sima You Yue was blaming them for choosing a dangerous mission.
“Why would I not want to come along?” Sima You Yue laughed, “Aren’t we all in the same group? Relax, I will not lag behind you guys.”
Looking at the excitement in Sima You Yue’s eyes, Wei Zi Qi and Fatty Qu looked at him weirdly, isn’t this guy afraid of danger?!
“Oh right, have you told Master Feng about the incident where someone harmed you?” Fatty Qu thought of how Sima You Yue had said the person who harmed him was someone from their class and he asked casually.
“Nope.” Sima You Yue shook her head, “But I’ve already met her.”
“Then did you expose her?” Fatty Qu probed agitatedly.
“Why didn’t you expose her? She actually tried to kill you!” Fatty Qu yelled.
Sima You Yue saw how agitated Fatty Qu was and knew he was seeking justice on her behalf so she put a hand on his shoulder, saying, “It’s not the right time yet, I want to give her two more days.”
“If it were me and I saw my enemy, I would rush up and beat him to death.” Fatty Qu said.
“So who is the one who had pushed you?” Wei Zi Qi looked at Sima You Yue and asked.
“Within these few months, don’t you feel that He Qiu Zhi has become more high profile?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Is she the one who pushed you?” Wei Zi Qi asked.
Sima You Yue nodded her head in agreement.
“So it was her.” Fatty Qu said, “She had become more high profile these few months, I heard that it was because curried favor with the Nalan Clan.”
“What’s up with the Nalan Clan?” Sima You Yue rubbed her chin. If it was their clan, they would definitely have ideas and plots to kill her.
“You Yue, the Ancestor of this Nalan Clan has recently advanced in rank to become a Spirit Saint. In the past he was already unbearably arrogant and even much more so now. If it was really them who hurt you, even if your father is the General who protects the country, if you rashly accuse them, I’m just afraid that you will be fruitless in your labor.” Fatty Qu was a person from the capital and was more familiar with these kind of things.
“I understand this point.” Sima You Yue said. “So I want to collect evidence and let the one who had harmed me get out of here before I take action.”
“So what do you plan to do?” Wei Zi Qi saw the coldness flash in Sima You Yue’s eyes and he gained in interest.
