Chapter 151: Being struck by lightning
When she saw the sun, it was as if she had been struck by lightning. Reason being that the Spirit Pearl used to be able to sustain life, but did not have blue skies, clouds not a sun. When one raised his head, it was just endless space. She never thought it would actually have a sun.
“There’s a sun, so that means there will be a moon?” Sima You Yue asked when she recalled that Little Spirit said she would no longer need to take it out.
“That’s right. In the future, this place will have days and nights.” Little Spirit boasted proudly, “If I’m willing, I can even make it rain and pour. It will make farming pill ingredients more convenient.”
“Then won’t this place be like a tiny world?” Sima You Yue called out in surprise.
“That’s right, I’m a tiny world right now.” Little Spirit nodded as he replied, “It’s just that this place is still quite limited, so it’s not as big as other continents. However, if there’s any opportunity to expand, it will slowly grow larger.”
“Under what circumstances would it improve?”
“Something like this, where you managed to find something good for me to fuse with will be a way to improve it. Also, because of our connection, when your strength increases, it will benefit me as well.”
Sima You Yue felt so helpless.It had to do with her strength once again. Little Roar was an ancient Divine Beast, and was supposed to be helluva awesome. However, because of his contract with her, his abilities were limited. He told her as well that he would slowly recover as long as she got stronger.
Ling Long was a Supreme Artifact, but could only turn into hammers and frying pans because of her.
Now they were saying that it had to do with her own strength once again. This really gave her enormous pressure!
However, at the end of the day, she was truly surrounded by such amazing treasures, but she was just like guarding a hoard of precious treasures without opening the door to them. She could only stay at the door, taking an occasional peek inside.
“Its great since this Golden Snake Fruit Tree doesn’t need to be taken out every night. It’s so troublesome to move it here and there.” Sima You Yue said, “However, didn’t Mo Sha say that he needed to stay in my bracelet in order to feel for her other half? This means that I would need to be outside.”
“No need, we can stay here. I don’t know what kind of thing was used to create this Seven Layered Pagoda but, after fusing with it, my strength increased. Right now, I can absorb the essence of heaven and earth to nurture the soul.” Little Spirit declared proudly.
Sima You Yue immediately laughed. It was even able to absorb the essence of heaven and earth to nurture the soul? What kind of weird creature did Mo Sha turn him into?!
Seeing that Little Spirit was angry, she quickly wiped the smile off her face, asking, “What about that Seven Layered Pagoda?”
“I am the Seven Layered Pagoda right now.” Little spirit said, “This can be counted as the first layer of the Seven Layered Pagoda.”
“Mm mm, the first layer of the Seven Layered Pagoda was originally not too big, but it enlarged after it fused with me.” Little Spirit said as he snapped his fingers and a pagoda slowly appeared in front of them. “I am current the weapon spirit of this pagoda so I can control it. This was something I recommended with you in mind, only this way will you be able to enter the levels above.”
Sima You Yue released Little Spirit as she pushed the door open and walked in. The
first layer appeared pitch black and she assumed that it was because LIttle Spirit intentionally made it this way.
“There’s a staircase above, so you can use it to go upstairs. However…”
Little Spirit had yet to finish speaking before Sima You Yue dashed upstairs. In the end, she was viciously bounced off and could only fall heavily on the ground.
“Damn, what is that, my butt really hurts!” Sima You Yue rubbed her butt as she climbed back up.
Little Spirit flew over, saying, “I had yet to finish speaking, what are you in such a rush for! This second level has yet to open, so you can’t go up before that.”
“Ah?!” Sima You Yue looked speechlessly at the weak staircase that had done this to her. Was it toying around with her!!”
“What do you mean ‘Ah’? You are the one who charged there so quickly.” Little Spirit pouted his lips affectionately.
Sima You Yue pulled at Little Spirit, shaking him as she asked, “Little Spirit, aren’t you the spirit of the artifact? Don’t tell me that you can’t open it?”
“It’s not like I’m the original Artifact Spirit.” Little Spirit said, “If I was the original Artifact Spirit then it would be no problem regardless of which level I wanted to go to. However, I forcefully invaded this space, and the fact that I managed to revive those few levels is already considered really good. It’s impossible to think of opening every single level.”
“Then what do I have to do in order to go upstairs?” Sima You Yue pouted, “Don’t tell me that it has to do with my own strength?”
“Has to do with my strength again… heavens, just let me get struck dead by lightning!” Sima You Yue lamented.
A bolt of lightning flashed and shot Sima You Yue directly, turning her body black and her hair curly.
Little Spirit and Little Roar roared with laughter when they saw the state that she was in. Even Mo Sha could not help but smirk.
Sima You Yue coughed twice as she spit out a mouth of smoke.
“Little Spirit, what is going on!!!”
When she came back to her senses, she realised that she was almost turned into charcoal and shouted at Little Spirit.
Little Spirit clutched at his stomach as he tried to stop laughing, saying, “Hehe, I forgot to tell you that this place is practically another world, and you are the Master of this place. So, your word here is like the law. You said that you wanted lightning to strike you, so lightning really came!”
Little Roar flew and landed on Sima You Yue’s head, messing up her hair and saying, “Yue Yue, you always said you had curly hair in your previous world. Now that you have curly hair, you don’t have to curl it anymore and it’s been naturally curled for you.”
Sima You Yue stretched forth a hand and pulled a few strands of hair as a sharp pain coursed through her body.
“You should first eat some pills.” LIttle Spirit forcefully proposed.
“Hmph hmph.” Sima You Yue took out a jade pill bottle from her interspatial ring and ate two pills before exiting the little Pagoda.
“Yue Yue, I realised that the speed of which time flows here is different from outside!” LIttle Roar followed Sima You Yue out and he said.
“How is it different?” Sima You Yue cleaned her blackened face and rubbed away two white circles. It looked really funny.
“The time that flows here is a bit quicker than outside.” Little Spirit said.
“Wasn’t it this way in the past? The pill ingredients here have always grown faster than they did outside.” Sima You Yue did not understand.
“That was in the past, but I’ve improved already!” Little Spirit was dissatisfied at Sima You Yue’s attitude as he declared lously, “The speed of which time flowed used to affect only the plants, but now, animals are affected as well. What I’m saying is that you’ve been here for so long but only a little bit of time has passed outside!”
“It affects people now too?” Sima You Yue looked at Little Spirit with widened eyes.
“Hmph hmph, of course.” Little Spirit said proudly.
“It’s that great?!” Sima You Yue pulled Little Spirit into a hug and embraced him tightly. She looked at Mo Sha, saying excitedly, “Mo Sha, what kind of awesome thing did you create for me?!”
“I didn’t expect that there would be this kind of outcome either. It all goes back to the quality of the Seven Layered Pagoda.” Mo Sha saw that Sima You Yue’s were quickly becoming tiny crescents, as he felt a weird sense of joy in his heart as well.
“Ah!” Sima You Yue thought of a very important question, “If this is the case, if I stay here long enough, won’t I grow older faster than other people?”
