Chapter 127: A long chain bracelet
"Because there's a protective layer above the Sofia Mountain Range. There are many Divine Ranked beasts, so even if you were a Spirit Paragon, once you went out, you would have to face hundreds of Divine Ranked beasts. One careless mistake and you would lose your life." Ouyang Fei said.
"Hundreds of Spirit Beasts!' Fatty Qu heard himself suck in a breath. That Sofia Mountain Range was really so perilous?!
Pu Luo Mountain Range had just one Saint Ranked Full Ape, but that Sofia Mountain Range actually had hundreds of Saint Ranked beasts. It was no wonder that everyone was extremely surprised.
"There's a natural protective barrier and there are even Saint Ranked beasts outside. No wonder there's no one who goes out." Everyone finally understood.
"You Yue, how did you know that Ouyang Fei would be the most clear about this?" Bei Gong Tang asked.
"I merely guessed so." Sima You Yue said.
"You're really the smartest; you're always able to guess it." Fatty Qu said.
"Ouyang, when did you come to the capital?" Wei Zi Qi asked.
Ouyang Fei thought about it for a moment, saying, "It was two months prior to the time the Academy was recruiting students."
Seeing him act this way, everyone knew that he had some difficulty answering and no longer asked him for answers.
"It's fine if we didn't know it in the past, but now that we do know, we definitely have to go to the outside world in the future to take a look." Wei Zi Qi clenched his hand into a fist as his face had a obvious yearning for the unknown world.
"Before that, it's better for everyone to cultivate properly and increase their own strength." Bei Gong Tang said, "If there's nothing else, I'll be heading back to my room."
"We will be returning as well." Fatty Qu said, "I won't skive anymore. I will cultivate whenever I get the opportunity. I don't believe that I will be locked in here forever."
Wei Zi Qi stood up as well, saying, "I'm heading back too."
The three of them left, leaving behind Ouyang Fei and Sima You Yue.
"How did you know I wasn't someone from the Dong Chen Kingdom?" Ouyang Fei looked at Sima You Yue and asked.
"I said it before, I guessed it." Sima You Yue shrugged, "Also, it was a feeling. Ouyang, no matter what you've experienced, at the very least, we're here now. If you feel like telling us about all those things that you experienced, then go ahead. If you're unwilling, nobody will drift away from you or blame you."
"I know. But it's better for you all not to know about these things." Ouyang Fei stood, up, "I'm going back."
Sima You Yue watched Ouyang Fei leave as she sighed deeply in her heart. It looked like he and Bei Gong Tang were people who kept a lot of secrets in their heart! Added on to that, her own identity, it looked like Wei Zi Qi and Fatty Qu were the only ones in her group who grew up in relatively less complicated environments.
"Hu-" Sima You Yue let out a long breath as she closed the door, and in a flash, she appeared within the Spirit Pearl.
Mo Sha was just waiting for her. When he saw her, he said, "We won't be refining pills today."
"Why?" Sima You Yue was stunned for a moment before asking.
"Your current state is not good and it will affect your refinement. We'll continue in two days when your mood has stabilized." Mo Sha said cooly.
Sima You Yue thought about her current state and how, if she was unable to participate in the pill refinement wholeheartedly, she would only negatively impact the success rate. As a result, she nodded her head, saying, "Okay."
"Besides that, I've finished refining the Spirit Stone." As Mo Sha spoke, a single Devil's Snare Flower bracelet appeared in front of the two of them.
Sima You Yue stretched forth a hand to touch the bracelet a little. It was as if the bracelet was sentient and wore itself around her wrist. It highlighted her fair wrist and looked exceptionally alluring.
"This is a bracelet that I refined using the Spirit Stone as well as some ingredients from the Spirit Pearl. It can be used to contain a spirit." Mo Sha said.
"Aren't you perfectly fine inside the Spirit Pearl?" Sima You Yue said.
"Although I can still see whatever is happening outside from inside the Spirit Pearl, I am unable to feel for the other half of my soul." Mo Sha said, "By wearing this on your wrist, I will be able to get a reaction from a certain distance. If the day comes where you meet the other half of my soul, or if he isn't too far away, I will be able to feel it."
"So this is the case." Sima You Yue lifted her hand and looked at the chain bracelet on her wrist, asking, "Since this will be able to contain your soul, what about the soul of others?"
Mo Sha shot her a glance, saying, "Do you think that I will let others share a space with me?"
The meaning behind his words was very clear. It was possible, but he was unwilling to do so. If she were to really allow another Spirit to enter, it was really possible that he would be exterminated even before taking a good look at what the inside looked like.
"Since I have this in the future, I will also be able to absorb the gas emitted by the Golden Snake Fruit even from inside." After Mo Sha finished speaking, he disappeared into a puff of black smoke and squeezed his whole self into the chain bracelet.
Sima You Yue touched the bracelet and she appreciated it while saying, "Not sure how this guy actually refined this. Its appearance is really not bad. It definitely is not your average Spirit Accessory. Who knows, it could possible be some Holy or Divine ranked accessory. It's so pretty, I'm just going to call it the Devil Snare Bracelet from now on."
Since Mo Sha said he wasn't going to refine pills, she went to the cultivation room to cultivate and slowly recovered to her original frame of mind.
After two days passed, Mo Sha said that they could begin refining pills. Sima You Yue brought the bracelet with her as she entered the Spirit Pearl.
After resting for two days, Sima You Yue's frame of mind had already recovered to its peak and satisfied Mo Sha's requirement.
When they came to the Refinement room, Little Spirit prepared everything they needed as if it was a habit. The two of them checked it out a bit before directly beginning the refinement process.
Having the experience of the previous time, the refinement process was even smoother than before. Sima You Yue was even more familiar with the amount of Spirit Qi needed to refine the Hundred Revolutions Pill, so although it did take a toll on the Spiritual Qi in her body, she was not as tired as the previous time.
"It's done." Mo Sha retrieved his flame and looked at Sima You Yue, who was exhausted once again. He said, "Although it always depletes the Spiritual Qi in your body, this is actually beneficial too. The Spiritual Qi that you pour in the next time will be even more concentrated and it is only in this way that your strength will increase and you won't get drained so easily."
"I understand." Sima You Yue sat on the ground and said with a pale face.
Mo Sha flashed and entered the Devil Snare Bracelet as Sima You Yue took out a pill and ate it. Her body recovered a bit of strength and she crawled back up, coming beside the Pill Furnace as she prepared to keep the pills.
The pills entered the jade bottle one by one and she was stunned at the final moment. She poured the entire contents of the pill out onto her hands to count it again and was certain that she did not count wrongly.
"Mo Sha, didn't you say that the maximum number of pills per batch would be ten? How come there are eleven pills this time?"
Mo Sha's languid voice sounded from the Devil Snare Bracelet. He said, "When I was in my physical body, a single batch would minimally produce twelve pieces. Ten pills was merely a conservative estimate since I'm in spirit form."
"Oh." Sima You Yue took out the pills as she looked at them happily, "Adding on the pills we refined the previous time, we have twelve pieces. That time, I only needed eighteen pills and now I have an extra three. Once I recover my Spiritual Qi, I'll go and give it to Grandfather and the others so they can take it earlier."
She placed all the Hundred Revolutions pill into her interspatial ring before sitting cross-legged on the floor. She began to absorb the Spiritual Qi from the space around her.
At this moment, a group of people crossed over the Sofia Mountain Range, entered the Dong Chen Kingdom and headed straight for the Imperial Capital. If Sima Lie was around, he would definitely recognise that one of them was the one who had injured him that day…
