Chapter 1419: Assigning a bodyguard
Ximen Feng felt excited too, he couldn’t keep still ever since everyone was having a discussion to make a decision.
“Have you guys come up with a plan?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Mm.” Ximen Feng nodded, “To make sure that they don’t escape, we’ve decided to deal with the Zong Zheng clan and Yin Yang Palace together by splitting into two armies.”
“With this, we can finish them once and for all, but a starved camel will be stronger than a horse, so we can’t underestimate their power.” Sima You Yue said.
“You don’t have to worry about that, I’ve already checked. The mysterious force is chasing after Sky Splitter, they aren’t with Zong Zheng clan and Yin Yang Palace recently. If not, we won’t be able to crumble their economy that easily given the power of the mysterious force.” Ximen Feng explained.
“Have you evaluated the opponent’s power against ours?”
“Don’t you know how powerful we are now?” Ximen Feng saw how she asked nervously as he remembered that she didn’t notice it before, he smiled, “We’re Paramount Valley, we’ve the most powerful specialist second to Guilds, but we have more Spirit Masters than the Guild. In comparison to other forces, even if we didn’t have a lot of Spirit Masters, our specialists will definitely crush them.”
“I understand this, but to split our forces….”
“Don’t worry, we’ll definitely crush them this time, we have to let them have a taste of how it feels like being unable to retaliate.”
Those years when the Zong Zheng clan was the main force, many of the Yin Yang Palace members came along, they poisoned the Ximen clan and took everyone’s life like a harvester.
Now, she wanted to let them have a taste and go through the same desperation and sorrows just like they did!
The disciples in the Valley long knew that they would have a fight with Zong Zheng clan and Yin Yang Palace, they also knew that they would go into battle anytime, so most of them were preparing for the battle for the past few months.
Because of that, none of them was surprised when they received the news of setting off in ten days, instead, some of them were excited that they were eager to get into action, they couldn’t wait any longer.
When they went with her initially, she told them clearly that she chose fugitives because one day she would need them to fight with their life to help her get revenge.
From the beginning, they put in these efforts as they were thankful to Sima You Yue for being able to let them live under the sun again and giving them a peaceful life.
But after going through so much together, they were greatly convinced by her, admiring her and respecting her deep down from their heart. They couldn’t wait to exterminate both forces knowing that it was avenging for her and Ximen Feng.
So, everyone in the Valley was enthusiastic in the ten days they were preparing, to the extent that Sima You Yue was speechless.
“Elder Sister, they are too excited.” Ximen Li was as surprised as Sima You Yue by their enthusiasm.
Ximen Li was in seclusion the whole time and only came out after she received the news. There was an obvious change in her at this point.
“Has Little Dough transformed?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Not yet! But it’s returning my power.” Ximen Li was excited talking about it.
“It’s already Divine Overlord, not bad.” Sima You Yue continued, “From what he said, when he successfully transformed, you’ll receive more power.”
“Since my power has already gained, I want to participate in this as well.” Ximen Li said.
“No.” Sima You Yue rejected her unhesitatingly, “It’ll be a chaotic battle, although your power has gained, you can’t even defend yourself in that situation. Also, you only have Little Dough and no other spirit beast, that guy doesn’t even have the will to fight.”
“But I want to go.” Ximen Li continued, “I’ve cultivated so hard these past few years because I want to avenge my family one day.”
Sima You Yue saw the pain and determination on her face, she knew if she didn’t let her go, she would regret it forever.
“Alright. But, I’ll need to find two bodyguards for you.” Sima You Yue said.
“Let’s go.” Sima You Yue gave her a pill and brought her to inner regions.
“Elder Sister, what are we doing here?” Ximen Li rarely came to the inner regions, she felt uneasy seeing those things spitting bubbly poison.
“I told you earlier on, to look for bodyguards.” Sima You Yue walked in front, her objective was clear.
Both of them came to the place where Black Fox gathered, they were stopped before they even got close.
“It’s my Clan Leader’s territory in front, you can’t go there.” A black fox came out to stop them.
Both of them stopped and said, “Fine, ask your Clan Leader to come out then.”
“What business do you have with our Clan Leader?”
“There are important things that need to be discussed.” Sima You Yue continued, “Don’t tell me that you don’t know who I am? If you know, go and report to your King.”
That Black Fox blinked at her, turned and walked away after hesitating for a while.
Given her reputation, all the spirit beasts in Heartbreak Valley would definitely know her.
After a short while, a shiny coated fur Black Fox came out and said when it saw Sima You Yue, “I’m the Black Charm King of Black Fox Clan. We have nothing with Paramount Valley the whole time, I wonder what brings you here?”
“I need a strong spirit beast, I’ve given a lot of thoughts, in the whole Heartbreak Valley, you guys have the most will to fight, so I’m asking for a spirit beast.” Sima You Yue said without beating around the bush.
“You want a contract beast?” Black Charm glanced at her with an unkind look.
“Not me, it’s for my Little Sister!” Sima You Yue pointed at Ximen Li.
“No!” Black Charm rejected without any hesitation.
They might consider if it was for Sima You Yue, afterall, all the spirit beasts in Heartbreak Valley knew about her.
They might have a bright future if they followed such a powerful person.
It would be different if it was for Ximen Li.
The beasts acknowledge humans, not relationships!
“Don’t you look down on her! Although her power is weaker, if she competes with you, you’ll definitely lose. If you don’t believe, send someone to give it a try!” Sima You Yue said arrogantly.
Seeing how she was confident, Black Charm looked at Ximen Li who was weaker and said, “Why should I get someone to compete with her? What’s the benefit of competing?”
They were indeed a cunning fox as they negotiated even at this point of time.
“If my Little Sister wins, the one who competes with her will acknowledge her as Master. If she loses, I’ll refine a bunch of pills that you need.” Sima You Yue smiled lightly and said, “How? Do you dare to bet?”
