Chapter 1487: Strange desert

Translator: Misty Cloud Translations  Editor: Misty Cloud Translations

Towards this question, Sima you Yue temporarily had no answer.

“It’s really strange! We clearly walked towards this direction, so why does it feel like we’re getting deeper in!” Si Yue asked with confusion.

Sima You Yue raised her head and looked in the direction of the sun, staying silent for a moment before musing, “I think that I’ve figured out the reason.”


“After setting up camp at that oasis, once night came, the direction slowly changed.” Sima You Yue said, “When we left, we entered from this direction so we naturally thought that this was the exit. We headed in a straight line, but ended up feeling like we were going in deeper. This is the most likely explanation. If not, it means that the space here constantly changes.”

Just like the folding space they had encountered back in the wonderlands.

Apart from these two reasons, she couldn’t think of anything else.

“Should we head backwards?”

“Going back doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the right way either. Sima You Yue said, “We have already walked for a day and a night, so the direction might be different again. Let’s not panic for now, let me do some tests.”

“What tests?”

“You’ll know when you see it. I’ll look for an oasis for now.”

After half a day had passed, they found an oasis. Si Yue set up camp at the side while Sima You Yue something that resembled a dart and inserted her spirit energy, after which it actually floated into the sky. After this, she took out three different colored little flags and placed them on the ground. In the middle was something that constantly faced the sky.

“If we use this, we can be assured that the direction won’t keep changing.” Si Yue said with understanding.

“Alright, we’ll get the results once tomorrow comes. Let’s head back and rest.” SIma You Yue dusted her hands and said.

On the morning of the second day, Sima You Yue heard Si Yue call out from inside the tent.

“You Yue, it really moves!’

Sima You Yue walked out and saw that the dart that was facing the flags had already turned to a specific direction. The dart was in the middle of it and another little flag.

Sima You Yue walked forwards and kept the flags away. She raised her hand and the dart landed in her palm.

“It seems like my guess was right. This was the result of only a night’s work. When morning came, it would definitely continue to move.” Her expression was rather solemn as she looked at the vast desert beyond the oasis. It was no wonder that many people entered and never got out again.

That was because the direction they headed in was not necessarily the right one!

“We can’t sense its changes because we are inside this place.” Si Yue said, “So that means we can’t get out either.”

“No. If it were anyone else, they might never be able to get out. However, we don’t have to worry about this problem.”

After Sima You Yue finished speaking, she called for a few thousand scarlet bees and got them to fly out in various directions. There would definitely be scarlet bees who would be able to find it.

Si Yue saw the countless scarlet bees and rubbed her neck. Her goosebumps were definitely forming.

“You’re really awesome. With them, we just have to wait here.”

“Mm.” Sima You Yue said, “They probably need a bit of time. We just have to wait here for more news.”

“This isn’t too bad, but it’s a pity that it’s too hot. It really makes you uncomfortable.”

Si Yue went back to her tent to change into a set of cooler clothing. When she came out, she saw Sima You Yue cooking again.

After a moment, a bowl of delicious, ice-cold fruit salad was placed in front of her. Half of it was filled with ice.

“Whoa! I was just talking about how I lost my appetite from the heat, but you actually made this.” Si Yue happily carried the bowl and ate it up.

“You’re a dark attributed spirit master so the dark spirit energy in you is colder. That’s why you feel uncomfortable inside this hot desert.” Sima You Yue said, “Although this won’t get to the root of the problem, it should still be good enough to help temporarily.”

“Mmhmm, this is delicious! Thank you, You Yue!” Si Yue looked at her gratefully. She was the one who had trapped Sima You Yue back in Ghost City, but Sima You Yue was the one who was taking care of her now. This friend was really one that she had made well!

They stayed in the oasis for four days before the scarlet bees finally sent word back. This time, Sima You Yue didn’t use much spirit energy. Instead, she got Halcyon and Little Roc to get them back. When night came, they flew out of the desert without rest.

When they arrived in the camp, Si Yue’s guards were the first to run over.

“Young Miss, where did you go? Your subordinates have been very worried.”

“I just went for a spin with You Yue. What were you guys worried about?!” Si Yue waved her hands at them, a little upset that they were so worried about her.

“They were worried about you.” Si Hui and Si Yi came out from inside the tent.

“Second Brother, Third Brother? What are you guys doing here?” Si Yue looked at them, smiling as she stepped forwards to hold onto their arms, “Did you guys want to come out and take a look at the human realm too?”

“When they couldn’t locate you, they notified Father. Father got us to come over to take a look at you.” Si Hui said, “You’ve only come out for a short while, but what a ruckus you’ve caused.”

“You guys also came too quickly.” Si Yue stuck out her tongue.

Sima You Yue was a little shocked to see them as well. It seemed like Ghost City really had their special ways to cross over.

“Second Brother, Third Brother.” She bowed towards them.

“We were initially pretty worried about Lil’ Sis, but when we arrived, we heard that you had gone with her, so we waited here for your return.” Si Yi said, meaning that he had a lot of faith in her.

“What do you mean, it’s clear that I’m stronger than You Yue, alright? How could you speak of me as if I’m just like that.” Si Yue pursed her lips, acting like a child as she protested against Si Yi.

“Your personality is worrying from the start.” Si Yi hooked her nose.

Although Sima You Yue was not that powerful, she had a very steady and careful temperament. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have been able to cause such a huge commotion back in Ghost City. Also, while Si Yue was more powerful than You Yue, her personality was unbridled and impatient. It really caused one to worry.

Wu Lingyu also came out from inside the tent. Sima You Yue looked at him and she walked away smiling.

“How did you come back so quickly?”

“When I heard that you had gone missing, I rushed back.” Wu LIngyu said, “Did something happen?”

“We discovered a few secrets of the desert. Let’s talk inside.”:

Perhaps it was because Sima You Yue’s expression was grave, but Si Hui and the others turned solemn as well.

Could it be that something untoward had really happened these few days?

They entered the tent and Sima You Yue recounted what happened back in the desert. When everyone heard it, they furrowed their eyebrows.

The oasis would actually change directions? Then was it only the oasis that would do it, or was the entire desert like that?

“Those people who went in to find a path must have been unable to exit the area because of this.” Si Hui said, “It’s a good thing that you were still around this time. Otherwise, Little Sister would have not been able to exit.”

“Third Brother, you’re too kind. If it were not because of me, we would not have had to enter that dangerous place. However, we did manage to find out a bit more about the desert because of it, so we can be considered to have gained.” Sima You Yue said with a smile, “Right now, what we should first figure out is the problem of the directions. If we can’t figure out this problem, it will be too dangerous to enter!”
