“I’ll help you to look for your Father if you let me go. I know where he is.” Black mist was still trying to negotiate with Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue’s heart thumped, but she didn’t show it and said, “I’ve given you the choices clearly, there’s only two. You can take your time to consider.”
“Don’t you want to look for your Father? I’ll help you if you let me go. This is only fair.”
“I do want to look for my Father. But I can find him even without you.” Sima You Yue said with affirmation.
“You won’t be able to find him without me!”
“Oh really?” Sima You Yue smiled, “I still have the hope to find my Father without you. But for you, without my permission, you don’t even have to think about getting out and you’ll have to stay in this small little pond for your whole life! For me, you’re redundant, but for you, you need me.”
“It’s impossible for me to acknowledge you as my Master!” That little guy insisted.
“Alright then.” Sima You Yue shrugged her shoulders, “It’s up to you if you want to stay here. I won’t suffer any loss anyway. I’ll leave once they reseal you. At that time, they’ll remake this place as a restricted area and I won’t have any rights to come here anymore.”
“That’s right!” Si Yue spoke too, “Little Sister, you just came here and didn’t know about what happened before, they will execute on the spot for whoever came close to the restricted area last time. I remember once a Paragon ranker came close here and was killed on the spot when he just got to the surrounding of the restricted area.”
Sima You Yue pursed her lips, this little girl hadn’t been here before and was unknown to the surroundings, but it sounded so real when she started scaring people.
“Seems like I really can’t come close to here next time.” She joined in Si Yue while looking regretful.
“It’s useless even if you come close to here.” Si Yue said.
“Think about it, can you even break the seal when Aunt Man found a way to reseal it or even when the Old Demoness comes back to reseal it? Even though you can suppress it, breaking the seal is another thing.” Si Yue analysed.
“What you said is right. I didn’t think of that.” Sima You Yue continued, “Blacky can control it, depending on it’s aura and power of the pressure, but it can’t break the seal. With that said, once it’s sealed, then there’s nothing I can do.”
“But it’s none of my concern anymore, wait till they seal it, I’ll leave here and look for my Father. Once I find my Father, I’ll leave Ghost City and go back to Human Realm.”
“Right, it’s not of your concern anymore. Eh, Little Sister, since we know how to use arrays, why don’t we make use of the time to learn by exchanging experiences? We won’t have the chance once you leave.”
Both of them stated the pros and cons by exchanging words, then they really went to the centre of the arena to discuss arrays and didn’t care about that little guy in the pond.
And that little guy in the pond didn’t speak, it seemed like it was considering what they both just said.
Sima You Yue and Si Yue discussed arrays continuously for two days while cooking for Mu Si and they didn’t stop before.
Mu Si’s injuries weren’t serious, with Sima You Yue’s medicine, he recovered well in two days.
“I’ve lost again this time, your arrays really got my admiration!” Si Yue put down the array stone, “It’ll be the second day soon, I wonder if Aunt Man and the rest had already found a way.”
“Who knows, but since it’s the City Lord’s meeting, maybe her successor might find a way.” Sima You Yue said.
“There’s no successor.” Si Yue shook her head, “That Old Demoness still has a long life, she has high regards on rights, so there won’t be any successor in the near future.”
“Sounds right, I didn’t see any other leader the day before.” Sima You Yue continued, “Let’s just wait a little while, maybe the letter will come soon.”
Half a day passed, Wu Man and the rest still didn’t appear, a messenger came instead.
“Young Miss Si Qin.” That guy cupped his hands in greetings towards Sima You Yue and said, “I’m one of the guards, In-charge Meng asked me to pass a message. They said that they’ve contacted the City Lord, she will be back in another two days and seal this thing. So, she requested Young Miss Si Qin to persevere for another two days.”
“They got in contact with the City Lord?” Si Yue and Sima You Yue was shocked, “Why didn’t Aunt Man and the rest come here?”
“Four in-charge had gone out to welcome the City Lord.” That person answered honestly. “The City Lord knows how to seal it, so we just need to wait for the City Lord to come back.”
The water in the pond heard what they exchanged and was already silent for two days, afterwhich, it started to roll again.
“It seems like I’ll have to persist for another two days.” Sima You Yue acted like she didn’t notice the pond and said to the guard, “Go back and tell the in-charges that I’ll persevere for another two days.”
That guard nodded to Sima You Yue and flew away, he came fast and went back fast.
“Even Aunt Man went out, it seemed like they really got in contact with the City Lord.” Si Yue continued, “Then you won’t be of any use in the city. You have to be careful and guard against the Zhang clan.”
Zhang Hao and Zhang clan looked at Sima You Yue with the murder gaze when they left. They didn’t dare to touch her now because she was important to Ghost City, but once Old Demoness comes back and reseal this thing, Sima You Yue would be useless then. With the Zhang clan’s revengeful nature, they would definitely do something to Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue wasn’t worried, “Don’t worry, there’s still two more days before that Old Demoness comes back, right? They won’t dare to do anything to me in these two days.”
“Mm, go back to the North city with me once the Old Demoness comes back to reseal this. No matter how powerful the Zhang clan is, they won’t dare to come to my house.” Si Yue said.
Sima You Yue smiled at her and said, “Thank you.”
“What’s there to thank me, you’re my Little Sister, I’ve already acknowledged you as my Little Sister, so I will definitely not abandon you and leave you in the lurch.” Si Yue said heroically.
“Mm.” Sima You Yue responded lightly, but in her heart, her friendship towards her was gaining and really treated her as an Elder Sister.
She had so many Elder Brothers and rarely had any Elder Sister. It felt good being cared for by an Elder Sister.
While they were talking, the black mist that was floating on top of the pond became thicker, the water in the pond started rolling even faster, it would be hard to ignore it.
“Why? Are you afraid now that you heard that the Old Demoness is coming back?” Si Yue questioned.
“Let’s discuss it, you let me out and I’ll stay beside you for a decade, I’ll run your errands for you for a decade. How does that sound?”
