Maybe they knew that he was coming, the living hall became like a joint hearing from the three halls.
Sima Qing and Sima Zhi Yuan sat on the Master’s seat, Sima He Shun, Sima Xiu Qi and Huang Ying Ying sat on the second bottom level and Sima Liu Xuan sat on the following lower level.
Sima Liu Qing looked at Wu Lingyu with his eyebrows frowned.
“This is the guy that wants to kidnap our family’s daughter?”
Eh, his tone was unfriendly and unhappy as if his little cabbage was dug by the pigs.
“How did you have a partner when you’re still so young?” Sima He Shun was unhappy too, “Holy Son of the Sage Pavilion? Our relationship with the Sage Pavilion has never been good, how can we marry off our daughter there?”
A few black lines dropped from Sima You Yue’s head as she watched them echoing each other.
“I can live with the women’s family if You You agrees.” Wu Lingyu said.
Sima You Yue almost choked on her own saliva and turned her head in shocked while looking at him.
Was there something wrong with him?
“We might consider if that’s the case.” Sima Qing rubbed his chin as he looked like he was thinking.
Sima You Yue was guessing that he must be thinking of the advantages that he would bring if he lived with them.
“Although I’m still a little unhappy, it’s much better now.” Sima He Shun continued, “What’s your thoughts on this.”
Sima Zhi Yuan had already long accepted Wu Lingyu, Sima Xiu Qi and the others were the Twenty-four Filial Exemplars, they would agree as long as You Yue agrees with it.
“Grandfather, there’s other things that I need to tell you guys.” Sima You Yue interrupted them.
They might come up with something else if they continued talking.
“What is it?” Sima Liu Xuan questioned.
“I’m going to leave with Wu Lingyu for a period of time.” Sima You Yue answered.
“Are you guys going to elope?” Sima Qing said out of a sudden.
Sima You Yue rolled her eyes at him, “Would I still report it to you if I’m going to elope?”
“Where are you going? For how long? Is it dangerous?” Huang Ying Ying asked.
Sima You Yue glanced at Wu Lingyu and said after seeing that he didn’t respond, “Lingyu said that an ancient mine was found at the Thirty Second State.”
“Ancient mine?!” Everyone’s breathing became more anxious, “Is that true?”
“It must be real if Lingyu said it.” Sima You Yue trusted him fully.
“Ancient mines have always been unknown to everyone and it’s dangerous there. The Thirty Second State has always been the strangest place in the inner regions, it’s possible to find an ancient mine there.” Sima He Shun said.
“Many forces know about this already, I guess many people will be running to the Thirty Second State now.”
“Then we shall send someone there too.”
“Great Grandfather, Clan Elder, I think the Clan shouldn’t participate in this muddy water.” Sima You Yue said.
“Lingyu said that ancient mines are too strange.” Sima You Yue continued, “It was found oddly and it appeared strangely as well. Even that place is filled with evil attributes.”
“Yes. No one has ever come out of there once they stepped in.” Wu Lingyu continued, “Actually, that place has been found a decade ago, but those people that stepped in, have never stepped out. But after every few years, items of those people will be found at the mine with no exception.”
“Although it’s very dangerous, it is as appealing.” Sima He Shun said.
“That’s right.” Wu Lingyu nodded, “The news didn’t spread out initially as the forces that found out about this have been suppressing it, wanting to have the mine for themselves. But they realised that this is something that is hard to swallow, so the news slowly spreads out.”
“When the news spreads out, many forces will definitely go there. The clan had just gone through the Jiang Clan’s matter and the vital energy had not recovered. Plus, it is dangerous there and we might not gain anything if the clan decides to go there.” Sima You Yue continued, “There are some opportunities where we can give it a try, but there are some that might not be suitable for us. We have to consider this realistically.”
Everyone was silent, she was right, there wasn’t enough power for the Sima clan to participate in this for now, but that was an ancient mine, it might be able to revive the clan even if they didn’t gain much from it.
“You Yue is right, we have to have enough power even though it is very tempting.” Sima He Shun continued, “I think we should stand aside and watch in regards to this matter.”
“You Yue, would it be dangerous if you go there?” Huang Ying Ying was worried, “I think it’s better if you bring some men along with you.”
“Grandmother, there’s Lingyu.” Sima You Yue smiled, “It will be easier for me to change according to the situation when I’m alone. Don’t worry.”
Huang Ying Ying glanced at Wu Lingyu, she knew that he was powerful and that You Yue would be fine if he was around.
“When are you guys leaving?” Sima Liu Xuan asked.
“Best is now, the news spread fast, I don’t know how many people are rushing over now.” Sima You Yue continued, “I might be able to bring something good back if I go earlier!”
“Alright. You must contact the clan if anything happens.” Sima Zhi Yuan said worriedly, “The clan will prepare some things for you, set off tomorrow instead.”
“Sure.” Sima You Yue responded.
It was only two days of difference anyway.
“Then you should go back now, someone will send the things over when it’s prepared.” Sima Zhi Yuan said.
Sima You Yue hesitated and took out a box, “Ancestor, this belongs to Lingyu, I’ve a copy with me. I think it will be more effective if it is combined with our clan’s spirit skill.”
“What is this?” Sima Qing took the box and opened it, he saw a handwritten inscription.
“This is Imperial Beast Art.” Sima You Yue continued, “This was the best Imperial Beast Art from a few thousand years ago.”
The box in Sima Qing’s hand almost dropped on the floor, the hand that was holding on to that inscription was trembling.
“What did you say this was?” He couldn’t believe his own ears.
“This is the Imperial Beast Art, Wu Lingyu got it unintentionally and passed it to me. I was thinking that the main spirit skill that the clan needs is fusing and requires a lot of spirit beasts. The power of our clan members will definitely increase several times if there are powerful spirit beasts. This way, our clan’s power will naturally increase as well.” Sima You Yue said.
“This is actually the Imperial Beast Art….. I’ve never thought that I will be able to see Imperial Beast Art with my own eyes!” Sima Qing was excited that he couldn’t speak, he thought that it was a hallucination while looking at the inscription in his hand.
“Oh right, the contractor and spirit beast’s power will increase if they use this Imperial Beast Art to tame the spirit beast when they’re establishing a contract, it can help people to advance.” Sima You Yue continued, “This kind of Imperial Beast Art is already extinct, so it’s best that you don’t let others know about this. If not, it will be a talisman of the clan’s extermination instead of something that revives the clan.”
