Chapter 1300: Heading to the entrance of Ghost City
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
“You don’t know? How are we supposed to get to Ghost City then?” Sima Liu Feng asked .
Little Helper looked at Di Wu and said, “You’ll have to depend on him to lead the rest of the way . ”
“Me?” Di Wu pointed at himself with confusion, “I have no idea where Ghost City is!”
Black lines filled everyone’s head . So this meant that nobody knew where Ghost City was?
They had always thought that Little Helper knew where it was, and Little Helper thought that Di Wu knew . In the end, nobody did .
“None of you know where Ghost City is?” Sima You Yue asked .
“Master said that he knows . ” Little Helper said .
“I’ve never gone there before . I’ve only heard of it before . ” Di Wu said helplessly .
“Your master knows to come here . Could it be that he didn’t say exactly where it was?”
Little Helper nodded . Yin Lin really didn’t say .
Everyone looked at each other . None of them knew what to do .
“Little Helper, did your master say why Di Wu would know the way?” Sima You Yue asked .
“Didn’t he just say that Di Wu knew the way . He didn’t say why . ” Little Helper said .
“Didn’t Di Wu say that he heard of it before? Maybe the one you’ve heard of before is right . ” Wu Lingyu said .
“Let me think . ” Di Wu said, “It was something I heard of a very long time ago . ”
“I heard a saying before: Where the sun sets over the western hills, man and ghost are connected . Could this have anything to do with it?” Sima Xiu Wi asked .
“Western hills? Right! The rumors of ghost city did involve the western hills!” Di Wu cried out .
“The western hills are the western hills of the human realm, so it should have nothing to do with the ghost realm right?”
“No, the ghost realm has a mountain known as the western hill . ” Di Wu said confidently .
“But there isn’t a mountain here known as the western hill . ” Sima Liu Yun said, “We came to search this area before . We searched all over but didn’t find anything . At that time, we knew that there was no place known as the western hill . ”
“Whether or not there is one, we just have to find a spirit beast and ask it to know . ” Sima Xiu Wi finished speaking and powerfully sucked in, and a spirit beast who was hiding in the swamp got pulled over .
“Mercy! Mercy!” The little mud fish wriggled about in mid-air, crying out loudly .
“Don’t shout, we’re not going to kill you!” Sima Xiu Wi said, “I ask you, within the southern desolation swamp, is there anything known as the western hill?”
When the little mud fish heard that they were not going to kill him, he immediately calmed down . When he heard what Sima Xiu Qi said, he thought for a moment and said, “No . There’s no place known as the western hill in the southern desolation swamp . ”
“There’s none!” Little Mud Fish said confidently .
“Do you know if there is one nearby?”
“All us spirit beasts here walk around very often . If there was one, we would definitely know . There is definitely no place known as the western hill . ” Little Mud Fish said .
Sima Xiu Qi saw that he did look rather honest and let him go . He caught another spirit beast and asked him the same question, but the outcome was the same .
“Seems like the western hill really doesn’t exist . ” Di Wu said .
Sima You Yue looked at the mountains in the distance and it just happened to be sunset . The sun set right in the middle of two hills and slowly set .
“Sun sets over the western hills, could it be that the Western Hill is not the name of a mountain but refers to the mountains on the west side?”
“Mountains on the west side?” Huang Ying Ying followed Sima You Yue’s gaze and also saw the sun setting on the west side .
“That isn’t too possible, right?” Sima Liu Feng said, “We are now standing on the west side of the mountains, but what if we weren’t standing right here? If we were standing to the west of that mountain, that mountain would be our east . ”
Sima You Yue didn’t agree, though . The more she looked at those mountains, the more probable she felt it was .
“In any case, we don’t have any other ideas, so we might as well give it a try . ” Wu Lingyu suggested .
“Don’t go there!” The little mud fish from before suddenly poked his head out, “That place is very suspicious . Spirit beasts always disappear there . It’s very dangerous . ”
Little Mud Fish’s words immediately evoked everyone’s attention .
“There seems to be nothing special about those mountains, though? Why would it be that dangerous?”
“I know . In any case, at this time everyday, that place will become particularly dangerous . That is why we do not go near that area at this time . ” Little Mud Fish said .
“Is it the same for other times of the day?”
“No, it’s normally two hours before and after the sun sets that the area will become terrifying . All the spirit beasts that go there will disappear . ” Little Mud Fish said .
“We understand . Thank you, Little Mud Fish . This is a present to thank you . ” Sima You Yue took out a pill and tossed it at Little Mud Fish .
Little Mud Fish didn’t know what pills were, but it smelled good so it was definitely something of good quality . Hence, it grabbed the pill and swum downwards again .
“Based on what it said, this should be the place . ” Sima Liu Yun said, “I really didn’t think that the place where the human and ghost clans intersected was in such an inconspicuous place . ”
They flew towards the mountains . Who would have thought that, although it looked so near, it was actually really far . By the time they reached the place, the sun had already set past the mountain .
They had no choice but to wait till the next day .
On this day, they had gone one round around the mountain . Finally, they didn’t see a single spirit beast . This place was truly strange .
On the second day, when the sun was about to set, they left the mountain range . Then, they slowly headed towards the centre of the two mountains . Just as they were about to traverse the space between the two mountains, the scene changed right before their eyes .
What used to be swamp turned into a dusky land . There was no setting sun, nor any emerald-green vegetation .
They looked behind them, and although they still saw the two mountains from before, it felt like it was in a different space .
“This place is so overcast . Where is Ghost City?”
“This I know!” Di Wu said .
“Didn’t you say before that you didn’t know?”
“What I didn’t know was how to get here from the human world . Now that we’re here, I know the way . ” Di Wu explained .
“It’s said that, from the point where the human and ghost realm intersect, no matter which direction you walk towards, just walk in a straight line and you will end up in Ghost City . ” Di Wu said . “The direction you head towards will be Ghost City . Exiting from Ghost City will bring you to a different world . ”
“So mysterious?” This was the first time that Sima You Yue heard about it . She felt like it was a little inconceivable .
She looked all around here and there truly was only one direction . That was a little strange .
However, for a special place like this, this wasn’t too difficult to accept .
“So you’re saying that, no matter where we head towards, we will be heading towards Ghost City? Then what was the point of you saying that you knew the way?” Sima Liu Feng rolled his eyes .
“That’s considered knowing the way too!” Di Wu retorted . Without him, they wouldn’t have known this face .
“Then let’s just randomly choose any direction and walk there . ” Sima You Yue bit her lip . Did her father end up there like this as well?
