“You, you’re You Yue?!” Old Man Devil was surprised and laughed, he went up to her and gave her a hug. “Hahaha, I didn’t expect to see my precious disciple when I just came back!”
“Master, don’t say it out loud, I can’t let others know that I’m back?”
“We’ll talk about the details when we get back. This….” Sima You Yue looked at the Valley that was almost leveled to the ground, “Seems like we can only put up with this.”
“I don’t think we can live here anymore, we’ll talk later. Let everyone recuperate first.” Liang Wu Ming said.
“Alright. Then I’ll bring people along to fix up the protective array so that everyone can recuperate inside.” Sima You Yue said.
“Sure. Sorry for the trouble.” Liang Wu Ming said gratefully.
“We’ll take our leave now. Few of you, come with me.” Sima You Yue called out for Heartbreak Valley’s Array Master and went to fix up a bigger protective array.
Old Man Devil’s jaw dropped from shock when he saw Sima You Yue walked away just like that.
“Since when did our Sima You Yue become so powerful?”
“A lot of things happen when you’re not around. You missed her growing phase!” Liang Wu Ming continued, “Your disciple grew up to a respectable level just in a few decades.”
“What?” Old Man Devil became more surprised, “Tell me, what has she been through these years?”
So Liang Wu Ming told him everything that he knew about Sima You Yue while Sima You Yue was fixing up the array, he added, “These are what we know but I believe there are more things that we don’t know about.”
Old Man Devil was stunned, he needed to digest it, how did he get such a talented disciple?
Also, he didn’t teach her how to refine pills and the days they talked weren’t that long either, adding up to only a few days.
He was conflicted, would she still acknowledge such an incompetent Master since she was so talented?
But, come to think that she was so talented, he as a Master had the honor.
Sima You Yue fixed up the array, she came back to see Old Man Devil frowning and smiling.
“Master, what happened? Are you still bleeding? Have you taken your pills?” She asked in concern.
Old Man Devil hugged her seeing how she cared about him and said, “You Yue, Master is incompetent! You experienced so much by yourself. Would you blame Master and don’t want me anymore?”
Eh, so he was actually troubled about this.
She patted his back and said, “Master, what are you thinking about, once you become my Master, you’ll forever be my Master, why would I not acknowledge you!”
“Sob sob, I’m touched!” Old Man Devil’s devil cries made the whole of Divine Devil Valley raised their eyebrows.
“Alright Master, everyone is looking at you!” Sima You Yue smelled the blood on him, she struggled out from his embrace and passed him the healing pills to him.
“Hehe, I forgot about it in a shock. But mine are just external injuries, it’s not that serious so I don’t need these pills.” Old Man Devil took the pills in all smiles and the wound stopped bleeding very quickly.
Not long after, the light of the array shined outside of the array, Ying Bai Chuan brought a group of people here.
He was shocked upon seeing Divine Devil Valley in a mess, why were there so many losses?!
They wanted to go in but he noticed that the array was different. Just when they were going to contact Liang Wu Ming, an entrance opened up letting them in.
Ying Bai Chuan took a look, he didn’t care if it was a trap, he told the people behind him, “I’ll go in and take a look first, you guys come in after I made sure it’s safe.”
“It’s better that we go in. You can lead better than anyone here if anything happens.”
“No, I’ll go in.” Ying Bai Chuan continued, “You guys wait here.”
“Young Valley Master! If anything happens to the Valley, we….”
“Hey, are you guys coming in or not?” Ni An Yi suddenly appeared behind the array and gave everyone a scare.
“Isn’t he one of the ten great evils? He’s with Young Valley Master You Yue. That means it’s safe inside.” Someone recognised Ni An Yi.
With that said, it was safe inside.
“Let’s go in.” Ying Bai Chuan commanded and everyone followed suit.
After everyone went in, the array closed up again.
Not long after Ying Bai Chuan went in, he saw many wounded members.
“Bai Chuan, you guys are back. How is it there?” Liang Wu Ming asked.
“Everything is smooth there, most of the Cloud Cave and black robed men were killed by us, but some escaped.” Ying Bai Chuan continued, “Master, why is the situation so serious here?”
“They have an array breaking weapon and it spoiled our plan.” Liang Wu Ming mentioned, “Go and take a look at others and see if they need help.”
Ying Bai Chuan was surprised seeing Sima You Yue.
“You Yue? When did you come back?”
Sima You Yue blinked seeing how surprised he was and said, “I came back for a while now. Why, didn’t Martial Uncle tell you?”
“Were you the one who told Master the news?” Ying Bai Chuan suddenly realised.
He was curious from the start, who was the one who told Master about the news which made him so certain and even set up deployment accordingly. So it was her!
“Lucky that you’re here, if not our losses will be big, we might even be exterminated.”
“Look at you. Although I’m not in the Valley most of the time, I’m still a Divine Devil Valley member.” Sima You Yue laughed, “Are you going to count the statistics?”
“Yes. I’ll need to see the wounded and death count.”
“Go ahead. I need to go and take a look at those with more serious injuries.”
They brushed past each other and went on with their business.
The result was out quickly, there weren’t many deaths but there was quite a number of injured. As there were Alchemy Hall, they wouldn’t be lacking pills, so the injured ones were nothing much.
But the one that made them headache the most was how were they going to live here since the Valley was destroyed in the battle?
“Ma Yuan Ming who’s raised by a beast, I’ll kill him when I see him!”
Everyone was angry seeing the mess in Divine Devil Valley.
“Being angry wouldn’t change anything, let’s wait till we’re recovered, we’ll definitely flatten their Cloud Cave, we’ll make them pay blood for blood!” Sima You Yue said.
“Everyone can’t just keep staying here. Half of Divine Devil Valley can’t be used anymore. The injured ones need to have a good rest.” Liang Wu Ming said with a heartache.
“Martial Uncle, why don’t you let them recuperate at Heartbreak Valley. It’s more spacious there, let everyone go there first and they can come back after this place is fixed up.” Sima You Yue suggested.
