Chapter 104: Ancient Mythological Beast or Perverted Beast?
Sima You Yue spent the rest of the time looking for Spirit Beasts to contract. She looked for beasts ranked from first rank to Saint rank and speedily went through them rank by rank.
When it came to her fifth day on the mountain, Sima You Yue had already managed to tame a first ranked Saint Beast. On this day, after she had tamed the First Ranked Saint Beast, the strength that she had gained and caused her to break through the Spirit Master’s fifth rank, ascending to the sixth rank.
“Never thought that this Imperial Beast Art would really allow a Spirit Beast Master to gain strength while taming beasts.” After ascending in rank, Sima You Yue felt an increase in strength in her inner body and she felt exceptionally good.
“That’s a given. Or else, why would this Imperial Beast Art become the treasure that all Beast Tamer Masters would fall over themselves for.” Little Spirit said, “Our ex ex ex master was a Beast Tamer Master and he said before that he really wanted to obtain the Imperial Beast Art. This was because Beast Tamer Masters wanted to tame Spirit Beasts of higher ranks and needed to spend a lot of time increasing their own mental strength at the cost of slowing down their own cultivation. If they were able to obtain the Imperial Beast Art, and able to gain strength while taming beasts, wouldn’t he have easily…”
“Little Spirit, you really have many ex masters.” Sima You Yue broke out with cold sweat. He had Alchemists and Beast Tamer Masters… if he ever told her that he had a Weaponsmith Master and an Array Master, she wouldn’t even be surprised anymore.
“Hmph hmph.” Little Spirit snorted from his nose. He decided that he would no longer tell Sima You Yue that he had past masters from all the different professions.
“Enough, let’s continue taming.” Sima You Yue said, “Little Roar, I felt relatively relaxed when I just tamed that first ranked Saint Beast so you should just directly help me find a third ranked Saint Beast, okay.”
“Okay, Yue Yue. Wait for me!” Little Roar flew off after speaking and brought a third ranked Saint Beast back with him not long later.
This time when she was taming the Spirit Beast, Sima You Yue felt that it was a bit draining and had, with much difficulty at the end, managed to tame it.
When she finished taming it, she wiped off the sweat on her forehead. It looked like she had overestimated her own strength. However, being able to tame a Saint Ranked Beast was something that the entire Jing Chen Country had never seen before.
Of course, this was totally dependent on her possession of the Imperial Beast Art and the Art of Soul Refinement, coupled with her overflowing mental fortitude.
“Yue Yue, do you want a fourth ranked one?” Littler Roar flew over to ask when he saw that she had finished.
Sima You Yue shook her head, saying, “Taming that Third Rank was quite draining already. If I went another rank higher, I’m afraid that I would hurt myself. You should go and help me look for a few Third Ranks and bring them over. Wait for me to recover before I begin taming them.”
“Okay then.” Little Roar finished speaking and flew off again.
Sima You Yue watched Little Roar abduct Spirit Beasts with such a passion and laughed as she shook her head. After that, she let Ya Guang protect her as she closed her eyes to regain some of her exhausted mental strength.
It could be that it was the first time that she had finished using up her mental strength while taming so Sima You Yue had to use an entire night in order to recover. It was only on the second day that she managed to comple
tely recover. She directly used up an entire day’s worth of time to tame those Spirit Beasts and another night to recover, repeating the cycle over and over again until she had finally completed taming those few third ranked Saint Beasts.
After that, she also cultivated a few Saint Beasts of first, second and third rank and kept them all into her Spirit Pearl. In order to prevent them from knowing about the secret of her Spirit Pearl, she let Little Spirit keep them alone in a particular area.
“Master, you have already been stay here for almost half a month.” Ya Guang saw that Sima You Yue was more or less ready and that the Saint Beasts had already been more or less swept clean before speaking out to remind her.
“Mm, we should leave soon.” Sima You Yue nodded, “Not sure how the capital is like right now. Wait for Little Roar to come back then we can return.”
After speaking, she shouting for Little Roar a few times in her heart and told him that they were going to leave soon so he should come back quickly or else she would leave him behind without a care.
“Cruel Yue Yue!” Little Roar lamented before turning to the Spirit Beasts beside him that he was happily conversing with, saying, “I have to go. Sigh, don’t miss me too much.”
After he finished speaking, he flew back towards Sima You Yue, leaving behind a female Monkey that was looking at him, reluctant to watch him go.
Sima You Yue could sense the situation that was happening at Little Roar’s side and her whole face turned black.
This guy, he actually went to go chase girls, uhm wrong, he went to chase Spirit Beasts!
“Yue Yue, I’m back!” Little Roar came back and rolled in Sima You Yue’s embrace.
Sima You Yue lifted Little Roar up by his neck, right in front of her face and looked left and right.
“Yue Yue, what are you looking at?” Little Roar asked as he looked at Sima You Yue with large surprised eyes.
“I’m checking to see whether or not you are really an ancient mythological beast!” Sima You Yue said.
Little Roar swung his head to the side and said with incomparable arrogance, “Are you able to see it clearly?”
“I only see a perverted beast!” Sima You Yue flung Little Roar away and sat on Ya Guang’s body, saying, “Let’s go.”
Upon receiving the order, Ya Guang stirred his limbs and started to run. Little Roar regained his balance in the air and saw that they had left first, complaining, “Actually treat a handsome and confident ancient mythological beast this way, really a woman with a poisonous heart! But other female animals are powerless against me, why is Yue Yue always so violent? Could it be that she was a male in her past life? Not right, wasn’t she also Yue Yue in her previous life. Sigh, so confused…”
Being unable to come up with an answer, he saw that Sima You Yue and the others had already ran very far so he rushed to catch up with them. He sat on Ya Guang’s head and, with the attitude of a commander, looked towards the front.
With Ya Guang’s speed, they very quickly arrived back at Salt City.
Sima You Yue first went to look for the inn. She found out that Sima Lie and the others had already left ten days ago so she directly went to the Spirit Master Guild and took the Teleportation Array back to the capital.
One day later, Sima You Yue arrived at the capital and immediately headed straight for the General’s residence.
“Fifth Young Master, you’re finally back.” When the steward saw Sima You Yue, he ran over excitedly.
“Hey hey, I’m back. Where’s Grandfather?” Sima You Yue smiled as she asked.
“General is in the hall.” The steward replied.
“I’ll go look for Grandfather.” Sima You Yue walked off right after she spoke but was pulled back by the steward.
“Fifth Young Master, it’s better not to go right now. The people from the Nalan Clan are here.” The steward said.
“People from the Nalan Clan are here? Is it Nalan He? What did they come for?” Sima You Yue asked.
Didn’t she ask Bei Gong Tang and the others to cause trouble for Nalan He and the others? How could they still have the time to come here to find trouble?
“It’s not Nalan He, it’s the Great Elder from the Nalan Clan who said he wants to see you.” The steward said, “However, the General has seen that they look like they’re up to no good and are afraid that it’s nothing good. He instructed us that if you were to come back, not to let you go to the hall.”
“Great Elder?” Sima You Yue searched for a Great Elder from the Nalan Clan from her memories, it was known that apart from their old ancestors, he was the strongest man who was most capable of breaking through to Spirit Saint.
Sima You Yue had initially wanted to head to the Hall to take a peek at that Great Elder, but the steward would rather die than let go. Thinking about how Sima Lie was not unable to deal with an elder, she let it go and turned around to return to her house.
The steward looked over at the guard, hinting to him to let them know when the people from the Nalan Clan had left before leaving together with Sima You Yue.
When she returned to her own house, seeing that the steward would not leave her, she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
He still treated her as the same youth who would easily get hurt and was afraid of her getting even a little hurt. This warmed her heart and she kept the feeling in her heart.
Thinking of the Nalan Clan, she smirked in her heart. She beamed at the steward and said, “Steward, didn’t something happen to the Nalan Clan recently?”
