Chapter 1564: Encounter outside the cemetery
Han Miao Shuang and the others were not familiar with arrays. When they saw Sima You Yue like that, they knew that something was wrong.
“Junior Sister, what’s wrong?” Su Xiao Xiao asked.
Sima You Yue sighed, saying, “The feng shui here is similar to the one before, it was initially an auspicious land, but someone has changed it into a cursed one instead.”
“Is there something different about it?” Jiang Jun Xian asked.
If it was the same as the last time, the Qi Spirits would not be different from before.
Sima You Yue nodded, “With the change in the array, the lightning element has been added in. Also, there are traces that show it has only changed recently. I’m guessing that this is the reason why the Qi Spirits have changed.”
“That’s why those Qi Spirits can revive themselves after being struck by lightning?”
“There’s not much lightning element, but this little bit strengthens their ability to hold themselves against lightning. However, when they encounter stronger lightning, they are still exterminated.”
It was not limited to her Top Grade Purple Lightning. If others had a high enough level of cultivation, they would be able to exterminate the Qi Spirits as well.
She called out many scarlet bees and instructed them, “Go and scout the area. See if you can find my master and the others.”
The scarlet bees fluttered their tiny wings and flew away.
“Let’s head inside the cemetery and take a look.” Sima You Yue said to the three of them.
They all possessed Deviant Fire. If they didn’t have to protect others, they would be able to wander around freely in the cemetery.
Jiang Jun Xian and the others had gone into the cemetery before, so they found the entrance very quickly.
The moment they entered, what they saw was not Qi Spirits nor treasure, but a pile of bones. The entire cemetery had been dyed red with their blood.
“They clearly knew that this place was riddled with danger, but for the sake of treasure, they ended up like this.” Sima You Yue sighed. She lit a fireball and burnt the corpses into ashes. Then, the flame returned to her palm and her hand was filled with spirit rings.
When Su Xiao Xiao and the others saw what she did, they couldn’t help but laugh.
There was no need to see how many treasures she had, but she still refused to let even these go. She was even self-righteously sighing about how these people valued money over their own lives!
Sima You Yue could see what they were thinking and put the interspatial rings away with a wave of her hand, “I’m different from them. If I knew that I would die, I wouldn’t enter this place. I love money, but I love life more! I’ll keep this for now. We’ll split it when we get back. I hope there’s good things in here.”
The three seniors of her didn’t object. They were not obsessed about the things these people owned, unless it was a pill ingredient that they needed.
“Let’s head inside and take a look.”
As they walked in deeper, everyone felt that it was strange. Apart from the corpses on the path, they didn’t see a single bit of treasure or a single Qi Spirit.
“Could it be that these guys know that they can’t defeat us, so they’ve all hidden away?” Han Miao Shuang guessed.
“It’s possible. If those people are controlling them, they should know that Junior Sister is their arch nemesis.” Su Xiao Xiao felt like it was entirely possible.
“It seems like I won’t be able to examine much this time. Let’s head back for now then.” Since it was useless, there was no need to waste time.
Jiang Jun Xian and the others felt the same.
Once they left the cemetery, her scarlet bees sent word, telling her where Feng Zhi Xing and the others were. Just as You Yue was about to leave, there was movement in the spatial area and a portal was opened. A group of people walked out.
“Master!” Sima You Yue saw the male beside her and ran over happily. When she saw the blood on his body, she grabbed his arm and asked, “You’re injured?”
Feng Zhi Xing saw how worried Sima You Yue was and patted her hand, saying, “This is someone else’s blood.”
“What’s going on? Didn’t you say that you have Deviant Fire? Why…”
“The ones who hurt us were not Qi Spirits, but other powers. They have a feud with us, so they were rather malicious.” Feng Zhi Xing said, “There were many opponents, so we were a little unlucky. It’s all thanks to them that we finally killed them off.”
Sima You Yue looked at the people who had yet to speak after coming out and said rather puzzledly, “What are you guys doing here?”
There was someone who was more familiar with Sima You Yue. He was the guard who had gone to the ancient mine with her and Xuan Qiu He back then.
“We received Young Master’s instructions to pick you up from the Sima Clan when we heard that you came here, so we came over as well. We didn’t think that we would happen to see your Master and the others trapped. The last time in the ancient mine, it was all thanks to Young Master Feng and Young Miss You Yue, so we casually stepped in. This is an elder from the clan, Xuan Qiu Ming Lang. He has also come to pick up Young Miss You Yue.” The guard said.
An elder from the hidden family. He was probably pretty strong. This proved that the one who stepped in to rescue them was this elder.
“Thank you, Elder Ming Lang, for your assistance.” Sima You Yue bowed to that elder.
“Young Miss You Yue, there’s no need to be polite. You were the one who saved all of our many Xuan Qiu clansmen, so this cannot be considered for much.” Xuan Qiu Ming Lang waved his hand, his straightforward expression rather amiable.
“How did you know that we were here?” Jiang Jun Xian suddenly asked.
“We came to pick up Young Miss You Yue, so we naturally have our ways to figure out where she is.” Xuan Qiu Ming Lang replied, “Young Miss You Yue, the five year mark has already arrived. I wonder if you will be able to come with us? Before we left, our Young Master urged us that time was of the essence. The situation may change if we delay.”
Sima You Yue was shocked. The situation would change, was that referring to her divine medicine?
“I have to go back and inform my clansmen before I can leave.”
“Alright. Then, let’s head back together.” Xuan Qiu Ming Lang said.
The group of them returned to the city. Before Feng Zhi Xing left, Sima You Yue called him to the side to speak to him alone. She used a barrier to surround them.
“Master, it would be better for you all not to involve yourself with the Qi Spirits this time.” Sima You Yue said.
“I saw it when I went to the cemetery. Those Qi Spirits are not afraid of the lightning attribute, and there are people controlling it behind the scenes. If you do not possess their arch nemesis, it will be too dangerous for you to participate. Also, there is no treasure in the cemetery, neither is there any inheritance or the like. To put it simply, it’s an empty space.” Sima You Yue siad.
Feng Zhi Xing’s eyes narrowed.
Sima You Yue hesitated for a moment before saying, “The formation of the Qi Spirits couldn’t have been done overnight, so the ones behind it can’t be your average power. They definitely have a long history. This kind of power is definitely too strong.”
“I will take my people and return.” Feng Zhi Xing said.
“Master, why did you bring people here at the time?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Because news was spread that this was an Emperor’s cemetery and that there was a divine medicine here.”
Sima You Yue paused for a moment.
Most Emperors would have divine medicine. If this really was an emperor’s cemetery, then the divine medicine would be in this cemetery.
It was no wonder that so many people had run over here. This piece of news was truly enough to entice people.
“This piece of news is fake. I have traversed the entire cemetery, and this is not an emperor’s cemetery.”
This proved that the divine medicine was a hoax as well.
She wondered who leaked out this piece of news, and what was their motive?
