Didn’t Wu Lingyu leave already? Could he have quietly followed them here?
Si Yue looked left and right, but she couldn’t see a shadow of Wu Lingyu!
“Lingyu didn’t come.” Sima You Yue said, “But he did give this to me.”
“He knew long ago that this would happen?”
“Mm. he said that this was the only thing they could do in the desert. Based on their level of intelligence, they wouldn’t be able to think of a better idea. That’s why he gave this to me.” Sima You Yue explained.
“Then how did he get the spirit beasts to return on their own?”
“That’s his business. I just have to use this item well.” Sima You Yue didn’t plan to tell her that this barrier had the aura of that devil beast. Was that ancient aura something that the average spirit beast would be able to hold up against?”
“Ah! Right! Those three are gone!” Si Yue finally recalled Yang Si and the others, “Seriously. I clearly had my eye on them, so how could they slip away quietly? I wonder where they went to celebrate.”
“Relax, they won’t be able to get far!” Sima You Yue said.
“Did you do something to them?” Si Yue looked expectantly at her.
“Of course it’s something good. Let’s go, there will be many spirit beasts coming and going tonight. We don’t have to bother about them.” Sima You Yue turned back and entered her tent again after speaking.
“Sigh, You Yue, come on, tell me. What did you do to them?” Si Yue chased after her and entered the tent.
Sima You Yue lay back on the bed and said, “Nothing much, actually. Didn’t they look for us before?”
“That’s right, but I didn’t see you do anything to them!” Si Yue tried her best to recall what happened, but she couldn’t think of any part that was off.
Ever since they came in here, she didn’t seem to have done anything out of the ordinary and didn’t do anything. What could she have done to them?
“There’s a type of scent that we can’t smell for the time being, but after a few hours, it will begin to activate. It will be a faint plum scent. You can try sniffing it out now.”
Si Yue tried her best to smell it, saying, “There’s really a plum scent. Are you saying that you poisoned the room long ago?”
“It’s not really poison. It just causes some spirit beasts to flare up in heat. It’ll disperse after a day.” Sima You Yue said.
Si Yue pursed her lips, who didn’t know that animals would lose all sense of reasoning when they were in heat? As long as it didn’t suit them, they would attack a person crazily.
However, how could they possibly suit them?
That was why this girl had really dug a grave for them to jump into!
“Is that item of yours powerful? If the spirit beasts aren’t powerful, wouldn’t it be useless?”
“When I get a job done, do you really have to worry about that?” Sima You Yue closed her eyes, “Just go to sleep. You’ll see the results tomorrow.”
Si Yue knew that she wouldn’t be able to get any answers to her questions so she returned to her tent and waited till the next day to find out the results.
Sima You Yue slept well the whole night. When she opened her eyes, the sky was already bright.
After taking a shower, she kept the things away. When she came out, she saw Si Yue standing by the side of the oasis. She saw the messy footprints outside.
Si Yue had already kept her things away. When she heard the movement behind her, she turned around and greeted with a smile, “Morning!”
“How are things?” Sima You Yue kept her tent away before going over to ask.
“I don’t know how many came, but there were fewer of them in the middle of the night.” Si Yue said, “Not many spirit beasts are still coming over.”
“The smell from the oasis has pretty much dispersed. Eat the antidote. Then, we’ll go over and see the results.” Sima You Yue gave her a pill.
Si Yue ate the pill as Sima You Yue called out Blacky and got it to lead the way. It headed towards the direction where Yang Si and the others had gone in.
The both of them followed the trail for a few hundreds of metres before they saw the corpses of the three girls. No clothes covered their bodies and the scene was one of devastation.
“Were they tarnished?” Si Yue pursed her lips.
“Nope.” SIma You Yue inspected the three corpses, “They had already died by then. Spirit beasts aren’t interested in dead bodies.”
“But this is still a terrible way to go. When they left the oasis, they definitely didn’t think that they would end up this way.” Si Yue clicked her tongue.
“They were probably ecstatic. I can only say that you shouldn’t intend to harm others as the wheel of fate is always turning. If you’re not careful, you will end up harming yourself.”
“That’s true.” Si Yue agreed.
In this world, although it was filled with violence, one couldn’t randomly try to kill others. For herself, one couldn’t wantonly provoke others. That was an essential to living a longer life.
“Are we going to leave their corpses here?”
“Mm.” Sima You Yue didn’t touch their bodies, “We’ll leave them here for a few days. I bet that someone will come to check it out soon. We just have to remove all traces of our presence.”
They wiped away all traces of their presences. Adding on to the fact that they already wiped away all evidence of themselves before they left the oasis, even if others saw the corpses of Yang Si and the others, they wouldn’t be able to link it to them.
Yang Si, Li Yao, Fang Qi, the three of them were the talented geniuses of the younger generation in their clans. Once they died, the clans would definitely know.
“Who killed Yang’er?” Yang Si’s father, Yang Gao Ming, received the news and almost collapsed!
“Lord, don’t be anxious. First, look for Father. He left a soul imprint on Yang’er’s body!” Yang Si’s mother reminded him.
“Right! Look for Father!” Yang Gao Ming hurried and ran to his father’s courtyard.
“Father, Yang’er couldn’t possibly have really…”
“My soul imprint has already disappeared. She really died.” Yang Wei was infuriated as well.
“Father, didn’t you leave a soul imprint on Yang’er body? Could it be that even you couldn’t protect her?”
“I don’t know why they entered the desert without permission. I only saw her with two other girls in the boundless desert being surrounded by a hundred spirit beasts.”
The Takagan Desert? Since she went there, why didn’t the clansmen follow them? This won’t do, I have to go and take a look!” Yang Si’s mother said as she ran out.
“I’m going too.”
“Let’s go together. We can also take a look to see just what the ancient mines are like.”
At the same time, the Fang and Li clansmen were rushing out to find out just how they had died.
Sima You Yue and Si Yue were none the wiser as to what kind of chaos they had brought to the three clans of the girls who had died.
After flying for a day and a night, the two girls and the dog were in the vast desert, looking blankly around them.
“We’re lost.” Si Yue looked at Sima You Yue.
The two of them who were still joking and laughing as they came in, now couldn’t force out a smile.
If they really got lost in this desert, it was a very dangerous situation.
Sima You Yue looked around her and finally sighed, saying, “We clearly came in this direction. However, it’s obvious that we really are lost.”
“Then we probably wouldn’t be getting close to the ancient mines, right?” Si Yue asked.
