When Sima You Yue looked at Mu Si, she had seen herself at the same age with the same stubbornness .
Thinking of his experiences over the years, her heart was filled with pity, which she had never had before .
She served him a bowl of snake soup . “Don’t just eat the meat, try this . This is stewed with a thousand year old black jade snake meat . Drinking that will be good for your health . ”
Mu Si took a spoonful and it tasted good . After eating that, he could feel a gentle force coming from his stomach, which made him comfortable .
“Why do you have so many good things?”
“They were slowly accumulated . ” Sima You Yue replied . “The more you experience, the more you accumulate things . ”
“But you are not much older than me . ” Mu Si said .
“How do you know? Maybe I am hundreds of years older than you?” Sima You Yue chuckled .
Anyways, spirit masters could maintain their appearance such that those who are thousands of years old can make themselves look like they were in their twenties or thirties .
“Intuition . ” Mu Si answered .
“Hehe, have porridge . ”
“You haven’t said how old you are . ” Mu Si looked at her persistently .
“I am in my fifties . ” Sima You Yue pondered for a bit . “Why are you so surprised?”
Mu Si stared at her with a stunned expression . This could be said to be the longest expression that was on his face .
“You’re just in your fifties?”
“Right . ”
“Those who are hundreds of years old in the city are not as good as you!” Mu Si exclaimed . “Those ladies in their fifties only know how to play . ”
“We have different experiences . ” Sima You Yue didn’t feel that she was remarkable . To a large extent, her achievement relied on external forces, such as encountering Mo Sha and contracting spirit beasts, etc .
Without these external conditions, she would not have this high strength .
Of course, she herself worked very hard . Her dedication could make everyone ashamed .
“Anyways, you are amazing!”
“If you work hard, you will have a promising life too . ”
“I don’t want a promising life . I just want to find my father . ”
“How did your father disappear? Hunting for treasure?” Sima You Yue asked .
“Yeah . ” Mu Si was silent for a while before responding .
Sima You Yue saw that he didn’t want to talk about his father much, she turned her attention to other things . She asked about the Ghost City .
Sima You Yue had though that Ghost City was a place where fish and dragons mix together . But she didn’t expect that after a long time, some family clans and forces established themselves there, as well as the city lord Luo Lian Sha .
She heard before that Luo Lian Sha was a stunning beauty, but unfortunately, she was devious and cruel . She was also strong . Everyone in the Ghost City was afraid of her .
However, it was said that she rarely appeared . It was unknown what she was doing .
Since the city lord was not managing things, there would be someone else who did that . Therefore the four major stewards under the jurisdiction of the city lord’s mansion were promoted . One of them was the head of Zhang Shuo’s family .
The Ghost City was bigger than the cities Sima You Yue had visited before . It could be seen that after flying inside for a few days, they still had not seen the city gate .
Zhang Shuo’s talent wasn’t good, and he was even incomparable to his several brothers . But because he was the direct young master, his status was still very high .
Unexpectedly, she had already killed off such a character as soon as she arrived . No wonder the men of Ghost City retreated .
She understood the thought of these big family clans . Although he was not very aggressive at home and his family members bullied him, the people above would turn a blind eye to him . But once a family member was killed by an outsider, the situation would turn terrible . They would only be reconciled until they investigate everything and kill the murderer .
Because the former was a private issue within the family, and the latter involves the face of the entire family clan .
Since someone dared to kill the descendant of the family, wasn’t that slapping them in the face and a challenge to their rule?
The former could be tolerated, while the latter absolutely could not be tolerated!
Mu Si also spoke of other forces in the city, but because it had nothing to do with them for the time being, he said sparsely of them .
“Mu Si, have you ever heard of this person’s name . ”
“Sima Liu Xuan . ”
“Yes . ”
Mu Si pondered for a while . “If you ask someone else, you won’t get an answer . But to me, you will . ”
“You heard of it before?” Sima You Yue’s eyes lit up .
“Mm, I once heard the name mentioned by people in the city accidently . But it seems that this name is taboo in the city and no one can mention it . I heard two people talking when I passed by, and one of them mentioned it . Soon, the other person hurriedly stopped him, but even so, when I walked back, I saw the two were being taken away . ” Mu Si recalled .
Sima You Yue was startled, it couldn’t even be mentioned? What did her father do here?
“So don’t go around asking people . If you get heard by the patrol team, you will be arrested immediately . ” Mu Si said solemnly .
“I got it . ” Sima You Yue nodded . “But do you know what he did here? Where is he now?”
“I don’t know . I only heard them mention his name . If it weren’t because they were arrested at the time, I wouldn’t remember it . But looking at the reactions of those people, I think your father must have done something serious . It’s a pity that I wasn’t there then, so I don’t know . ” Mu Si said apologetically .
“Mm, thank you anyways . ” Sima You Yue smiled at him . “At least, you can confirm my father did come here back then . The possibility of him being here is relatively high . It means that I am in the right direction . ”
“But if you want to find your father, it will be very difficult . ” Mu Si said .
“As long as he is here, I will be able to find him!” Sima You Yue declared confidently .
Seeing her smile, Mu Si nodded without understanding why . He secretly vowed in his heart that he would also go find his father .
“Oh, right . There’s one more thing . ” Sima You Yue saw that he was almost done eating . She changed the plate to fruit slices and offered him a fork . “You didn’t say what kind of place is the forbidden area in Ghost City?”
“This forbidden area in the Ghost City, from my memory, I heard the most that it was a place that one cannot get close to . If one gets caught, they would not only be killed, their family would be too . ” Mu Si explained .
“Oh? How can there not even be a single guard in such a mysterious place?” Sima You Yue was puzzled .
How did she know that it was not that no one was there, but something strange happened at the forbidden area . Everyone went there to help . No one dared to transpass into the forbidden area after a mass killing of a lot of people . Who expected there would be a situation of her and Mu Si .
“Mu Si, you bitch, get out of here!” A high pitched voice ranged outside . Then a figure in a blood red dress kicked open the shaky fence .
