It could be that the battle the previous time was too shocking, so they remained in the forest and walked around for the next few days but they didn’t get attacked anymore.
It seemed like those trees did not have any spiritual intelligence.
“Young Master, something is weird.” Xuan Qiu Zhi said.
“Mm. A little.” Xuan Qiu He nodded, “Instruct everyone to be more vigilant.”
On the way here, they found many traces of battle, but the traces showed that it wasn’t between humans. This proved that the guys in the forest were truly dangerous.
However, their journey had been too peaceful.
“Understood.” Xuan Qiu Zhi and Xuan QIu He had the same thoughts. There definitely had to be a reason why they didn’t face any enemies the whole way here. Without knowing the reason why, they would have to be more vigilant.
Wu Lingyu glanced at Flowey and Sima You Yue followed his line of sight. Then, she looked at him with puzzlement.
Did he feel like it had to do with Flowey?
When she contracted Flowey, he was around and knew all about Flowey.
“Perhaps I was wrong before.” Wu Lingyu said.
“What’s up with Flowey? Isn’t she the Man-eating flower king?” Sima You Yue looked at the chaotic flora and fauna in the forest and didn’t feel like there was anything different.
“Maybe she is the World Flower King.” Wu Lingyu didn’t really believe it either. When he saw her contracting Flowey, he was very clear about her origins. However, now that he saw things this way, it wasn’t something that a little Man-eating flower king could do.
Just talking about the fact that she was able to eat the vines. The average plant-type spirit beasts wouldn’t be like that.
Could it be that following Sima You Yue actually allowed her fate to change accordingly? As she advanced in rank, her contracted beasts also advanced in rank. As she went through tribulations, her spirit beasts did as well. There were times they would directly face the tribulations with her.
This… might have made their wheels of fate turn from their original destination and made their futures unknown.
Perhaps this was the real reason.
“Flowey… how did she rise in rank?” Sima You Yue felt somewhat stupid. The world flower king? Although she had never heard of this name, it sounded super cool!
Wu Lingyu told her about his conjecture, then added on, “It’s not that this has never happened before, but from my past life till now, I have never seen it happen.”
“If this really is the case, it wouldn’t be too bad!” Sima You Yue touched her chin. The more powerful the people beside her got, the more powerful she would be.
She already had a Crimson Flame who could command all the bird clans. If she also had a Flowey who could command the vegetation ones, it would be too amazing!
“Don’t be happy too quickly. Seeing how she is now, she hasn’t successfully transformed.” Wu Lingyu said, “If she wants to become the real world flower king, she still has more to go! You have to nurture her properly.”
“It’ll be fine if there’s an opportunity.” Sima You Yue siad, “But we have to see whether or not she’s willing. This road definitely won’t be an easy one.”
“That’s only natural. You can hand her to me…”
“If I hand her to you, she might become half a waste.” Sima You Yue said, “No way no way, I’ll give her some conditions, then we’ll see how it goes.”
“That’s alright too.” Wu Lingyu didn’t force it. She had always thought through her own things well.
“Mm.” Sima You Yue suddenly thought of something and subconsciously looked towards a specific area.
“Didn’t I release many scarlet bees when we entered this forest?” Sima You Yue said, “They sent news earlier on saying that some people up ahead have started fighting.”
“Up till now, more and more people have been coming.” Wu Lingyu said. What he meant was that, where there were people, battles were common. After all, they had all come here to seek treasures.
“However, the ones who are fighting are the Eastern Lai clan and the Northern Du clan.” Sima You Yue said, “Xuan Qiu He seems to have a pretty good relationship with the Eastern Lai Clan.”
“If you want to tell them, go ahead.” Wu Lingyu said.
Sima You Yue smiled at him, then went to Xuan Qiu He’s side.
“Are you certain?” Xuan Qiu Zhi’s reaction was greater than Xuan Qiu He’s, “The Northern Du clan is stirring up trouble again.”
“That- the Eastern Lai Clan seems to be no match for them.” Sima You Yue said.
“How do you know that?” Xuan Qiu Zhi was rather curious.
He was stronger than she was, so how did she know when he couldn’t even sense it?
Sima You Yue was silent for a moment, saying, “When we entered the forest, I released a few scarlet bees when you were not paying attention.”
Her use of scarlet bees was no longer considered a secret by now. It was fine for her to tell them. Furthermore, Xuan Qiu He knew long ago.
“Young Master, I will lead men to rescue them.” Xuan Qiu Zhi said.
“Be careful.” Xuan Qiu He nodded, “We will rush over.”
Xuan Qiu Zhi led his men and departed, running towards the direction that Sima You Yue had told them about. They only left thirty guards behind to protect Xuan Qiu He.
Sima You Yue saw that they had left so straightforwardly, and was a little surprised.
“Aren’t you worried that I’m cheating you and intentionally deceived them to deal with you?” She asked Xuan Qiu He.
“We are friends, so we still have this bit of trust among us.” Xuan Qiu He said.
Sima You Yue smiled. That was right, they were friends. He believed that she wouldn’t do anything untoward towards him.
“We should head over as well.” He pushed his wheelchair and left. He was not much slower than Xuan Qiu Zhi and the others.
That was why, by the time they had rushed over, the battle had yet to finish. However, due to the addition of the Xuan Qiu Clan, both sides were locked in a stalemate.
Sima You Yue looked at the two talents – Eastern Lai Li, Northern Du Hao. One was refined and elegant while the others was frivolous and flamboyant.
Northern Du Clan was truly stronger than the two clans because the battle did not stop just because the Xuan Qiu Clan joined in.
Northern Du Hao watched as Xuan Qiu He slowly approached, his eyes flashed with disdain.
“Xuan Qiu He, you’re blind and lame. Why did you run here to join the fun? Swords have no eyes here. It would be a waste for you to throw your life away for nothing.”
This guy was really nothing good! Sima You Yue had already sealed her impression of Northern Du Hao.
“Northern Du Hao, shut your damn mouth!” Eastern Lai Li cried out.
Xuan Qiu He did not act in rage as he crossed his arms and replied, “Nobody knows what the ancient mines are like. Northern Du Hao, are you certain that you want to waste your energy here?”
“Aren’t I just accompanying you guys and playing around!” Northern Du Hao did not think much of these two clans at all.
“I wonder if, after playing with us, you will still have the energy and heart to enter the mines and play with others.” Xuan Qiu He smiled lightly.
Northern Du Hao saw his eyes shine and hesitated for a moment before smiling coldly, “We’ll wait and see! Men, let’s go!”
After saying this, he led his men away. The Xuan Qiu Clan and Eastern Lai clan finally heaved a sigh of relief.
If they really fought, they would be dragged down even if they didn’t die!
Northern Lai Li came beside Xuan Qiu He, knelt down and grabbed his hand, “He, thank you!”
“What is there to thank. If it were you, you would have done the same.” Xuan Qiu He had a light smile on his face, subtly pulling his hand back.
