Sima Liu Xuan saw that Sima Liu Feng was looking at him with disbelief, so he stretched forth a hand and patted his shoulder, saying,”You’ve been goofing off these few years!”
This was also him implicitly admitting to his advance in rank.
Not only did he recover his strength, he also advanced by a level. This brat really treated her father well. Sima Liu Feng was jealous, and was wondering how great it would be if he also had such a filial child.
At this moment, Sima Liu Feng, who had always been enthralled by cultivation, thought about having children for the very first time in his life.
“It’s a pity that this old man can’t get rid of this white hair.” Sima Liu Yun was a little regretful.
“So what if it’s white? When Mother meets Father later on, she’ll be able to see the price you paid.” Sima You Yue said with a smile, “Also, I feel like Father looks pretty good like this.”
“You Yue, will his current state affect his body in any way?”
“It won’t. Father’s black hair roots were changed when he was in Ghost City. It won’t impact him.” Sima You Yue said.
“Since you’re back, you should stay in the house and properly cultivate.” Sima Xiu Qi said, “Don’t do something as foolish as this anymore.”
Sima You Yue wanted to say that it wasn’t something foolish, but thinking about how he had disappeared and caused his parents and brothers to look for him for a few tens of years, he couldn’t bring himself to say it.
Sima You Yue went forward and held onto Sima Xiu Qi’s arm and asked, “Grandfather, how are things with the Qi Spirits?”
“I heard that many people died after we left, but one day, everything suddenly disappeared. It was as if it never occurred at all.” Sima Xiu Qi said.
“Disappeared?” Han Miao Shuang cried out with shock.
“That’s right. The Qi Spirits have disappeared and the cemetery is also empty. When everyone went in, all they saw were corpses.” Although they didn’t see it with their own eyes, they were able to picture what it looked like.
“It seems like they’ve all withdrawn. I wonder why they did this.” Sima You Yue was a little puzzled.
“There must be some secret that they can’t tell anyone.”
“As long as it doesn’t affect us, we don’t have to bother about it for the time being.” Sima You Yue said, “Grandfather, I have something I wish to ask you.”
“What is it?”
“Do you know where the Lost Place is? Do you know anything about it?”
“Lost Place?” Huang Ying Ying almost dropped the tea cup in her hands. She looked at Sima You Yue with shock, asking, “Why are you asking about that place?”
Sima You Yue told them about how Xu Jin and Ge Lang had gone to the Lost Place to find a cure for her physique, then said, “They’ve already been missing for a few years. Director Mao said that it’s been a long time since they sent any news back. Although their life jades are still alright, my seniors and I are very worried for them, so we’re going to look for them.”
When they heard that they had lost all contact with them for her sake, they swallowed the advice that they wanted to give her.
Huang Ying Ying and Sima Liu Qi exchanged glances. They shared the same worry.
“Grandfather, you guys know about the Lost Place, don’t you?” Sima You Yue understood it when she saw the way they were acting.
“Yes. That year, in order to look for Xuan’er, we went to the Lost Place and were almost unable to make it back out. There are numerous experts there and danger lurks everywhere. If you must go, your grandfather and I must go with you. We also have to bring a group of people with us.” Huang Ying Ying said.
Sima You Yue thought about it. If she didn’t agree, they may not let her go. As such, she nodded and replied, “If too many of us go, it will draw attention. If you must go, you have to stay in the little realm.”
“That’s no problem.” As long as she took them with her, they would be able to help her at the crucial points.
“Grandfather, just what kind of place is the Lost Place? Why is it so mysterious?” Sima You Yue asked.
“The Lost Place is like Ghost City. It doesn’t exist in the main continent.” Sima Xiu Qi piqued everyone’s interest with a single sentence.
Sima You Yue was only puzzled for a moment before she accepted it. The world was so big. Since an existence like Ghost City existed, there would naturally be other areas like it.
“Grandpa Qi, why is that place called the Lost Place? Why is it so mysterious? I heard Director Mao say that you can only send news out from that place and you cannot send any news in.” Han Miao Shuang asked with curiosity.
“The Lost Place is also a place where the Divine Clan used to live. Then, the Divine Clan fell and they took up less space. The Lost Place also became mysterious. RIght now, all the people who live there more or less have relationships with the divine clan.” Sima Xiu Qi explained.
“Divine Clan? Junior Sister, did you go to the Lost Place the last time?”
“Divine CLan? You Yue, do you have a relationship with the Divine Clan?” The Sima Clansmen looked at her with large eyes.
“I do.” Sima You Yue was shocked by their gazes and subconsciously drew closer to her father. “But I didn’t go to the Lost Place the last time. The Feng Clan is the real descendent of the Divine Clan, and has a much higher standing than those who are just hanging on to them.”
“The real Divine Clan? You know them?”
“Junior Sister not only knows them, but has a very good relationship with them!”
“Aunt Feng is the Honorable Master of the Feng Clan. When I left Billion City last time, I went to the Feng Clan to treat an old illness of Aunt Feng. So I can be considered to have received the acknowledgement of the Feng Clan.” Sima You Yue siad, “Aunt Feng could be the only Overlord in this world.
“Is there really an Overlord?”
“You Yue, you’re not swindling us, right?”
The Sima Clansmen were shocked. Did Overlords still exist? Didn’t they say that the heavenly law suppressed them? It had already been a few tens of thousands of year since an Overlord appeared.
“Aunt Feng advanced in rank via a different method, and is not an Overlord that has been acknowledged by the Heavenly Law.” Sima You Yue said.
“Although this is the case, it’s still very powerful.” Sima Liu Feng said with a sigh.
Sima Xiu Qi said after he had regained his calm, “Since this is the case, when we go to the Lost Place, we should not face too much danger. Those people should have connections with the Divine Clan and should know about the Feng Clan. Since you have been acknowledged by the Honorable Master of the Feng Clan, they will not dare to do anything to you.”
“That’s not bad. Wherever we go, Junior Sister is our protective amulet.” Han Miao Shuang laughed.
Sima You Yue was not that happy as she said with a sigh, “I just hope that we’ll be able to find Master and the others smoothly.”
“When do you plan to head out?”
“Within the next few days.” Sima You Yue said, “I’ve been rushing along recently and would like to properly rest for a while and prepare some things in order to avoid being flustered when we’re there.”
“Then I’ll head out for a while.” Sima Liu Xuan said.
“Father, are you going to look for Master?” Sima You Yue asked.
Sima Liu Xuan’s body was suddenly a little unnatural as he said, “Mm, I’m going to find him for something.”
“Go ahead.” Sima You Yue blinked at him, not exposing his thoughts.
When the two of them had met, Master definitely taunted him quite a bit. Now that he had recovered his strength, he was probably going to show off in front of him.
She never thought that her father would have such a childish side to him.
