Sima You Yue leaned over and found a comfortable position. She said, “I’m fine, I’m just a little tired.”
Wu Lingyu placed a hand on her forehead and Sima You Yue could feel a warm energy entering her brain. Her weariness subsided by eighty to ninety percent.
“You’re more effective than pills!” Sima You Yue was comfortable now as she rolled in in his embrace.
“If you do this again, I’m not going to care about you anymore.” Wu Lingyu said with a dark expression.
“There’s no way you won’t care about me!” Sima You Yue stretched forth a hand and poked his chin, asking, “When do you have to return?”
If those from the Sage Pavilion didn’t come out, then this survivor would have to give an account of what happened. If they were alive, they would probably have returned and he would have to go back and take a look as well. Although she didn’t want him to go, he couldn’t drag this.
“After confirming that you’re fine, I’ll return.” Wu Lingyu said.
“I’m fine. I just used some energy to tame the beast. However, it was unable to defeat me in the end.” Sima You Yue said, “I realised that taming ancient spirit beasts will make me much stronger. If I tame all the ancient spirit beasts, I might even be able to advance in rank.”
“Then you won’t have to do anything for the next few years.” Wu Lingyu said..
“That’s true…” Sima You Yue had earned quite a bit, “But I have to quickly tame all those spirit beasts and let the clan grow stronger.”
“I just knew that you would take this burden upon yourself.” Wu Lingyu pinched her cheeks, a little angry that she wanted to do that.
“This is beneficial to me anyway.” Sima You Yue explained, “I can obtain the spirit energy from the ancient times and I can also strengthen my mental strength. It’s killing two birds with one stone.”
“Strength can be gained slowly. If you injure your foundation it will impact your future growth.” Wu Lingyu nagged.
“I know. That’s why I’m just thinking about it, but I don’t plan to do it all.” Sima You Yue sang along to his tune ,”I’ll let Great Granduncle and the others nurture those Beast Tamer Masters more. We aim to settle this in two years.”
Two years. He definitely couldn’t stay here for such a long time. However, he could still do his best to ease some of her burden.
“Once you’re rested, we’ll go into the Spirit Pagoda. We’ll tame those beasts together.”
“Really?!” Sima You Yue sat up immediately. She knelt at the bedside and wrapped both arms around his neck. She quickly gave him a kiss on the cheek and said, “I knew that you were the best!”
He was so powerful and his comprehension of the imperial beast arts were incomparable. With his help, it would be like a walk in the park.
Wu Lingyu held her head and fiercely ravaged her lips.
“Revenge.” He licked his lips.
Sima You Yue’s lips were red from his nibbling and they looked plump and alluring.
“Who does what you do.” She pouted her red lips and glared at him.
“Later on, for every one I tame, I get a prize.” Wu Lingyu did not care for her protest.
“Perverted gangster.” Sima You Yue stretched for a hand to hit him, but he grabbed her arm and forcefully pulled her over so that she was lying once again in his arms.
“You’ve already called me a perverted gangster, so how could I deal with you if I didn’t really turn into a gangster?” Wu Lingyu held her and first lingered on her lips before moving towards her cheeks and finally nibbled her earlobe.
This was the first time that he had bitten somewhere other than her lips, and the warmth lingered on her earlobe, causing her entire body to tremble. It was like something was going crazy inside of her and wanted to break out.
Her arms that were wrapped around Wu Lingyu’s neck tightened subconsciously, pulling the both of them even closer together.
Every single part of Wu Lingyu was excited by her reaction, and his body felt like it was shackled and was struggling to break free.
Sima You Yue could feel something pressing against her, and her face turned beet red.
“Don’t…” She fought back with a soft voice, but that tender voice was like an invitation when it reached his ears.
At this moment, he hated that they were not already married so that he could possess her wonderful self, not like now when he had to hold back.
He released her and her face was so red that she looked like a cooked prawn. Her bashful look really caused him to tremble subconsciously.
He rested his head in the crook of her neck and mumbled, “Why don’t we get married sooner…”
Sima You Yue was stunned.
Get married sooner? Although she wanted to marry him quickly as well, it seemed like she had never thought about getting married before finding her mother.
Wu Lingyu could sense her change in mood and said, “Forget it, I was just mentioning it casually. You should rest first, I’ll leave for a while.”
He placed her on the bed.
“Where are you going?” Sima You Yue pulled on his hand. She was afraid that he was angry, “I- I was just thinking that Mother is not here, and I don’t want to get married while she’s suffering.”
Wu Lingyu patted her hand, saying, “I’m just going outside for a spin and to arrange some things in the meantime. If I stay here, I’m afraid that I wouldn’t be able to control myself.”
“You’re not angry?”
“I’m not.” Wu Lingyu sat back down and left a kiss on her forehead, “I know your heart and I respect your wishes. That is why all I can do now is to get the Ghost Realm to fast-forward their plans and rescue your mother sooner. Once we find your mother, I will propose marriage at your door and we will be a family!”
Sima You Yue chuckled when she saw the way he was acting, saying, “Then you can go ahead.”
Her smiling eyes reflected his suffering as he hooked her nose, stood up and left.
Sima You Yue watched him leave and her smile got wider and wider. Thinking about her reaction earlier, she grabbed her blanket and buried her head in it. Shortly after, muffled giggles could be heard.
Wu Lingyu left her house and looked for an area without people to contact his men.
“How is it over at the Sage Pavilion?” Wu Lingyu asked.
“Those who were sent to the ancient mines have not returned and the Pavilion Masters are enraged!”
“Just a group of useless people. Not a single one actually managed to return.” Wu Lingyu huffed, “Send word back saying that I’ve been trapped inside the ancient mine.”
Later on, he contacted another group and let them arrange matter over at the Ghost Realm.
He had to hurry up and find Ke Luo. Otherwise, his suffering would be too great.
Although his body was already calm, his heart was still rippling. After waiting a moment longer, he returned.
At this moment, Sima Qing had been invited over to the beast taming arena and saw the group of stone statues along with the ancient spirit beast that was still lying unconscious on the floor.
“Did You Yue bring back all of these?” Sima Qing asked.
