Chapter 1507: Something that terrifies Little Golden
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
An Lei saw Little Seven give a punch and didn’t think that everything on the ceiling above would suddenly fall down.
Sima You Yue hugged one of the watermelon-sized stones and touched the layer of stone. Then, she looked at it carefully, saying, “There should be a spirit herb in there.”
“An ancient spirit herb from the primordial times?” Little Seven was very interested in spirit herbs. She ran over and said, “Yue Yue, hurry, open it and take a look.”
After saying this, she licked her lips and stared directly at the ore in Sima You Yue’s hand.
Sima You Yue saw how impatient she was and said, “Don’t be anxious, what if it turns out not to be!’
“You said that it is, so it definitely is.” Little Seven was confident and her words were filled with confidence.
Sima You Yue laughed and knelt down, taking out tools to open the stone and began working on it.
Ever since An Lei followed Sima You Yue, she felt like her heart had suffered multiple attacks. Alchemist, Doctor, Mi Er, Little Golden, Little Seven, and now she found out that she was a Spirit Seeker Master!
A dual-occupation spirit master was not that rare in the Eastern Lai Clan, but she did not have as good of an environment as those from the clan nor the resources they had.
Sima You Yue was quick in her opening of the stone. In a short moment, only the size of a carrot remained.
An Lei wanted to take a closer look, so she subconsciously ran closer.
Sima You Yue slowly peeled off the last layer of stone, and a ray of light shone through a crack in the ore. A fragrant smell wafted out, and everyone who smelt it felt refreshed.
It really was a spirit herb!
Sima You Yue saw the medicinal ingredient that she couldn’t recognise. Even the dirt on the roots seemed to contain moisture.
“Do you recognise this?” She handed the pill ingredient to Wu Lingyu.
Wu Lingyu took it and shook his head, saying, “I don’t.”
This should be an ingredient that had long since gone extinct.
“Yue Yue, Yue Yue.” Little Seven’s eyes were trained on the ingredient, however, she wasn’t like Little Golden and didn’t snatch and eat it immediately.
On this point, Little Golden was like a ravenous child with no self control. While Little Seven was like a teenager. She wanted to eat it, but she wouldn’t be so impulsive.
Sima You Yue took the ingredient. It looked a little like a person’s two legs as it had two points. She broke off one of it and gave it to Little Seven. Then, she took the remaining with its roots to grow in the spirit pagoda.
Little Seven ate the spirit herb immediately. When she was done, she smacked her lips twice, as if she hadn’t had enough.
An Lei didn’t think that Sima You yue would hand the spirit herb to Little Seven without even thinking. It was an ancient spirit herb! If she sold it outside, it would fetch an immeasurable wealth!
Little Golden had eaten a stone statue and she had yet to reprimand it before giving Little Seven the spirit herb to eat. She treated her contracted beasts really well. She was not like those who merely took their contracted beasts as tools.
Perhaps she was different from Eastern Lai Li. Perhaps she was worth following.
After ascertaining that Little Spirit had planted the half of the spirit herb, she said to everyone, “Let’s continue on. LIttle Golden, you have to find some useful ores!”
Little Golden slithered on the ground to the front and shook its tail and Sima You Yue. Then, it hurried up ahead and wandered around.
Sima You Yue led everyone and chased after them. A long moment later, she found Little Seven waiting for them on top of a large boulder.
“This is?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Ss Ss-” Little Golden nodded as it crawled down from the stone.
Sima You Yue kept the boulder away. It was a huge one and she had no idea what was inside it.
“There are many stones like this.” An Lei saw that there were many stones all around and said.
“They all look like ores. I wonder if there’s anything good inside. Let’s talk about them again after going back.”Sima You yue said as she moved all the stones inside.
“Young Miss, it’s quite weird here.” An Lei said.
“Which part about it is weird?”
“That cave, it looks like it’s been carved out intentionally. However, if people really carved it out, why would they not take the items out as well?” An Lei asked.
Any one of these items on the floor was considered a piece of treasure outside. Just who made it, and who tossed them on the floor?
Sima You Yue didn’t think of this question earlier. Now that she thought about it, it was a little strange.
“No matter who it is or what the reason, it’s all in the past.” She said.
“I heard a saying before.” Wu Lingyu said, “I heard that someone had found the ancient mine, but nobody knows why it all disappeared. This situation was left unknown. However, an ancient spirit beast appeared and many people guessed that the person who entered was probably killed by that ancient spirit beast.”
Sima You Yue knew that, when he talked about the past, he was referring to tens of thousands of years ago. If it was that time period, even bones wouldn’t have remained.
“Could they have been talking about this place?” Sima You Yue said, “You’re saying that we’ve gained the spoils of those from the past.”
An Lei was speechless. Sima You Yue was too lucky, right? She was even able to encounter a place like this?
So many people had come, and there were definitely people who had already found the entrance to the mine. Other people aside, she was familiar with Eastern Lai Li. She could definitely sense this place already, but she just didn’t say it because she didn’t like Sima You Yue.
Now that they had left, Eastern Lai Li would definitely have led everyone from the zeastern Lai Clan into the mines.
If there was one, then there would be two. If the Eastern Lai Clan could enter, that meant that a few other secret clans would definitely have entered as well. However, they actually found a place where there were no traces of people entering. This proved that they were the one and only people who had gone in.
Shortly after they entered, they were able to find so many good things. There was even an entrance that others had cut out. Could she continue to use the word ‘luck’ to describe it?
They continued to walk forward and, on the way, kept all the stones that she saw. She couldn’t see whether or not they were ores, but even if it was an ordinary rock, she wouldn’t leave it behind. In any case, the spirit pagoda was huge. It would be a waste not to keep it.
Little Golden suddenly stopped walking and suddenly flew to Sima You Yue’s neck, winding so tightly around her that she almost couldn’t breathe.
“What’s wrong?” Sima You Yue petted Little Golden’s head and comforted it.
“Scared.” Little Golden was dazed as it wrapped itself even tighter around her neck.
Sima You Yue could feel Little Golden trembling and patted its head, saying, “Don’t be scared, we’re here.”
She didn’t know what Little Golden could sense, but no matter what it was, she would always stand by the side of her beasts.
When Little Golden heard what she said, it relaxed a little, but it still couldn’t stop trembling.
An Le was watching Sima You Yue comfort her spirit beast from the back, and was thinking back to the time she had seen Eastern Lai Li beat her spirit beast because it didn’t do its tasks well. The more she thought about it, the more she felt like following Sima You Yue was a rather good decision.
She just wondered, when she meets the killer from the Eastern Lai Clan, would she treat her like she treated her contracted beasts?
Probably not. After all, she had just started following her. Why would she offend such a large clan for her sake?
“Let’s go over and take a look to see just what it is that is scaring Little Golden so badly.” Sima You Yue’s clear voice interrupted her train of thought. She recollected herself and followed her forwards.
