Patriarch of the Clan

Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations

She lay on her bed gasping for breath, and the fear in her eyes slowly dissipated. She wanted to sit up, but her whole body was weak and she had no strength at all.

‘The feeling of death was too real. It was as if she had been killed by that person.

This was already the second time. The same dream, the same pair of eyes. The familiar yet unfamiliar pair of eyes.

After lying on the bed for a while, the fear that did not belong to her dissipated. After her body had recovered its strength, she arranged a spirit barrier and entered the Spirit Pagoda.

She leaned at the edge of the bath as the water surrounded her body, taking away the discomfort that remained. After soaking in the water for a while, she came out and went to look for Elder White. It just happened that Qing Yi had just come out of seclusion, and was speaking to Elder White.

"Elder White, Qing Yi, I have some matters that I would like to ask you about." Sima You Yue said.

"That’s rather unusual." Qing Yi laughed, this was the first time she had come to ask them anything.

"What do you want to ask us about?" Elder White asked.

Sima You Yue told them about Emperor Qing Dao’s matters, and also told them about her absorbing Emperor Qing Dao’s remaining powers. She also told them about the dream that had twice already, and asked, "Is there a possibility that, because of the relationship between Emperor Qing Dao and it, I

have been connected with it too?"

"This is not impossible." Elder White said, "With the connection you have between the two of you, it allows you to sense what he is doing, The scene in your dream may be what he is doing at that moment."

Sima You Yue felt that this was very possible, but she still had her doubts, "If it really is because of this, why was I not seeing things from his point of view, and instead I am seeing things as the victim?"

"This we do not know either. We were just guessing," Qing Yi said, "Maybe it’s because of your influence on each other. Or it could be due to other reasons, you will need to find the answer yourself. "

"You do not know, but it might." Elder White guessed, "You only have Emperor Qing Dao’s powers, while you do not know about any other matters. Maybe it knows more than you do."

"Yes." This was very possible.

"No matter what, you must separate what you see in the dream from yourself." Qing Yi said, "You cannot let those emotions affect you."

She would always enter the dream as those people. Those fears, dreadful and anxious feelings were being magnified. If they were not handled properly, it would affect her nature, and might even affect her dao heart.

"Twill. Thank You." Sima You would not let these things affect her. However, since they reminded her, she felt that she had to be extra careful. She could not let these bad emotions take advantage of her.

She talked about other things with Qing Hun and Elder White. She asked them about some of those oddities that they knew about. It was probably already bright outside by the time she left.

She took a turn in Declaration City. She originally only wanted to explore the area to see if she could get a hold of any news regarding the Xuan Qiu Clan. She did not think that she would see the Xuan Yuan Pavilion. Seeing the familiar sign on the door, she entered subconsciously.

"Hello, is there anything I can help you with?" A female assistant walked over and asked.

"Tm just taking a look." Sima You Yue said.

"That’s fine. If you have anything you need, please let us know." After the woman finished speaking, she no longer pestered her. She only remained to pay attention to her.

Sima You Yue walked around the first and second floors. Instead of looking at the items, she was trying to recall her past with these items. During this period, the sales assistant paid attention to her, but she had no objections even if she had no intention to buy anything.

Xuan Yuan Pavilion’s services always made people feel comfortable.

After walking around for quite a while, she randomly chose two things that seemed to be relatively expensive. Seeing that the assistant had other customers to tend to, she went to the counter to check out.

"That will be a total of ten-thousand top grade crystals."

Sima You Yue took out the crystal card and passed it to the person to make the payment, then kept the items away.

"This is your crystal card." The person who was handling the settlement swiped for ten-thousand crystals and passed the card back.

Sima You Yue kept the card, and asked, "I wish to see the steward in charge here."

"I deeply apologise, our steward is very busy at the moment." The person handling the payment said, "Do you have any other needs? If there is nothing particularly important, you can tell us first."

Sima You Yue took out the token in her hands, "I wish to understand some situations better. If he is busy now, I can wait for him."

‘When the people in Xuan Yuan Pavilion saw the token that was in her hand, their attitude became more respectful, "So you are Young Miss You Yue. The steward is indeed seeing a very important person right now. Is it alright if we take you to the VIP room to wait first?"

"Alright." Sima You Yue did not make things difficult for them. She followed the worker into the VIP room.

"Please wait here for a while, we will notify the steward to come over as soon as he is done."


Very soon, someone came to serve her tea, Sima You Yue waited for a while, and then a woman in a long green dress walked in from outside.

"I didn’t expect Young Miss You Yue to come here. I had some matters to deal with just now, so I really couldn’t leave." The woman in a green dress smiled as she walked in, "I am the steward in change here, my name is Hong Rou."

"It’s alright, I’m also just here to take a walk around." Sima You Yue smiled while taking a look at her. Her name was Hong Rou, but she liked to wear green clothes.

"Theard them telling me that you wanted to understand some situation better? Do you want to find out more about the black robed men?" Hong Rou sat down and asked.

"This is one of them. I also want to know some matters regarding the Xuan Qiu Clan." Sima You Yue said.

This place was close to the Xuan Qiu Clan. The Xuan Yuan Pavilion was also known for selling information. Even if the Xuan Qiu Clan was a Hidden Clan, they should know some information.

"Twonder what information Young Miss You Yue wishes to know about them?" Hong Rou asked.

"Young Master Xuan Qiu He. I wish to know some matters that are related to him."

"Xuan Qiu He is no longer that Young Master. He has become the Xuan Qiu Clan’s Patriarch a hundred years ago." Hong Rou was a little surprised that she did not know about this. Thinking about it now, she disappeared not long after she woke up, so it was expected that she did not know these things.

"Ididn’t think that he was already the Patriarch of the family." Sima You Yue was extremely surprised, "Wasn’t the Patriarch completely fine before? Why is he suddenly the Patriarch?"

"The old Patriarch has died, and he even died in the Xuan Qiu Clan. There are many rumours that he killed the old Patriarch." Hong Rou said.

"Is that so?" Sima You Yue did not have a good impression of anyone in the Xuan Qiu Clan, so dead or not it did not matter to her.

She continued asking about some of his matters, and Hong Rou answered all of them.

At this moment, a servant walked in, she held a piece of paper in her hands. When she saw Sima You Yue, she was stunned for a moment, but she continued to go to Hong Rou, and said in a low voice, "Steward, these are the news from those who you have asked us to pay attention to.."
