Sima You Yue wanted to advise her not to place her hopes on Third Mo, but since Si Yue didn’t say that she liked him, it was hard for her to say anything.
Once Si Yue had finished eating and drinking, Sima You Yue sent her out. Then, she went to look for Sima Liu Xuan.
“Father, where is Master?” Sima You Yue asked when she saw someone walking out of the room and reading.
“He returned.” Sima Liu Xuan replied without even raising his head.
“Returned? Why did he return?” Sima You Yue cried out with surprise.
“He left in anger.” Sima Liu Xuan raised his head, “He was talking to me halfway when he went into a rage and left.”
“Father…” Sima You Yue pursed her lips. Why did his eyes look like he had gotten his way? “Really… he left without even saying anything.”
Now that she thought about it, she should not have let them meet on their own.
“Hmph, this guy took the chance when I was not around to run over and look for you. He even accepted you as his disciple. It’s good that I didn’t take it up with him about that.” Sima Liu Xuan saw his daughter’s change in expression before he changed his tune, “Don’t worry about him. In the past, he often left this place in a rage. He’ll be fine.”
“But this is not polite.” Sima You Yue said.
“What is there to say about politeness or not? He’s used to it.” Sima Liu Xuan said lightly.
Sima You Yue pursed her lips. This was really a convenient excuse.
“What do you plan to do next?” Sima Liu Xuan didn’t seem to plan to be involved with Feng Zhi Xing and changed the topic.
Sima You Yue told him about her reaped rewards and what she planned to do with the tamed beasts, then told him how she wanted to properly grow stronger.
Sima Liu Xuan nodded, saying, “This is fine. You’re still young, so you should focus on cultivating. You don’t have to worry too much about the clan’s issues. You’ve already given them these things and it should be enough to bring the clan back to glory.”
“Father, five years. After five years, I will definitely recover your strength.” Sima You Yue grabbed onto her father’s hand.
“You should know that in my eyes, your safety is more important than anything else.” Sima Liu Xuan did not wish for her to put herself in harm’s way for his sake, “Father does not necessarily wish for you to do so many amazing things. I just hope that you will always be safe and sound.”
“Father, relax. I will definitely not let anything happen to myself. I still want to meet Mother. How could I do something rash and stupid?” Sima You Yue said, “I will only do things I am certain off. Once Father, you have regained your strength we will look for Mother. Then, we will be a family again.”
When she mentioned looking for Yu Ke Luo, Sima Liu Xuan’s eyes flashed with helplessness and [ain.
With him in his current state, how could he look for her?
Sima You Yue didn’t say much either. At this time, she would help to treat his body and allow his self-confidence to return.
“Father, you may continue reading. I’ll head back for now.” She had to hurry up and del with the issue regarding the ancient spirit beasts.
“Go ahead, don’t tire yourself out.”
“I got it.”
She returned to her house and Wu Lingyu returned. When she saw him, she thought about how she had accidentally sparked a fire.
Her face was getting a little red.
“Let’s go into the Spirit Pagoda.” She set up a barrier and let him in.
“Yue Yue, why did you come in? Are you going to open the stones?”
“Yue Yue, you finally came in. Little Spirit has been saying that if you take any longer, those spirit beasts will emerge on their own.”
“Isn’t that so? Hurry and let me open two to see.”
With the spirit beasts together, Sima You Yue’s heart quickly turned cold.
“Those spirit beasts are going to emerge?”
“That’s right. If not because they were inside the Spirit Pagoda where Little Spirit could suppress them, they would have already come out by now.”
“Let’s go take a look.”
She and Wu Lingyu came to the pile of stone statues and looked at them. It was filled with stones.
“If others knew that there were so many ancient spirit beasts here, I wonder what would happen.”
“The world will find out about it sooner or later.” Sima You Yue chuckled.
Most of these spirit beasts were for the Sima Clansmen to form contracts with, so they will be contracted beasts. Others outside will definitely see them. It’s just that… would anyone dare to bully their little clan when the time comes?
“Should we begin?” Little Spirit appeared in front of her and asked.
“Find a suitable place.” Sima You Yue said.
This place was not too far from where they were living. If the ancient spirit beasts wrecked this palace, they wouldn’t have any place to cry even if they wanted to.
Little Spirit naturally knew what she meant when she said that she needed a suitable spot. With a thought, they appeared in a desolate area.
Sima You Yue saw the boundless mountainous area and could not help but sigh, “Little Spirit, was the one who refined you really just one person?”
If it was just a single armament master, how could he have created such a divine tool?
Little Spirit ignored her and moved a few stone statues over, saying, “I won’t bother about the rest.”
Sima You Yue looked at the few stone statues then raised her head and looked at Wu Lingyu, asking, “Which one should we open?”
Wu Lingyu didn’t think that she would ask him and he casually pointed at one saying, “You know I don’t know how to appraise ores. Just start with that one.”
“This one?” Sima You Yue looked at where he was pointed at. The one that this guy had pointed to was the smallest one of all.
That ore was around the size of a baby’s head. It was around the size of a sparrow all around, and even seemed to resemble some spirit beasts.
She walked over and picked up the statue, saying, “Well, let’s just start with this then.”
This little stone did not reveal much in terms of appearance, showing that the stone layer was still pretty thick. She took out some tools to open stones, and shaved off the stone layer, layer by layer. Very quickly, only the final layer remained.
Sima You Yue looked at the final layer and blinked. She said with some uncertainty, “Lingyu, why do I feel as if this guy looks similar to Supreme Fifth Spirit?”
Only the final stone layer remained, and you could pretty much see the appearance of the spirit beast.
Wu Lingyu saw the little stone statue in her hand and also felt like it was rather similar to Supreme Fifth Spirit.
“Could it be a human-faced monkey?” He knelt beside Sima You Yue and stretched forth a hand to poke the statue.
Sima You Yue didn’t dare to cut off the last layer. If a human-faced monkey really appeared, what would she do?
Supreme Fifth Spirit was so powerful. If he knew that his clansmen had landed in the hands of a human, she didn’t know whether he would run up directly and turn them into minced meat.
However, she was at the final step. Could it be that she was going to give up and fail?
It was so small as well, it really looked so cute!
“If you want to open it, just open it.” Wu Lingyu’s voice was light, but it filled her with power. It allowed her to understand that no matter what, he would be on her side and fight for her.
Sima You Yue let out a long breath. She used the knife in her hand to peel off the very last layer as a tiny little human-faced monkey appeared.
