When Sima You Yue walked to the middle of the mountain, she raised her head and looked at the skyline. She was wondering what would happen if the separated mountains were suddenly forced back together.
Then, she felt as if her thoughts were a little funny. How could it be forced back together so easily? If that were the case, the tomb wouldn’t be able to survive either.
However, the fact that he was able to move the mountains over to become a tomb was actually very rare. It went without saying that it was a big deal.
Once they had all entered, Sima Liu Xuan activated the mechanism inside, and the mountains that were split apart were fused back together.
What they didn’t know was that, shortly after they entered, a few people arrived in the same place and came to those mountains as well as they looked at the mechanism.
“I didn’t think that they would actually be one step ahead of us. Are we going to enter?” The person spoke in a husky voice.
“How can we enter? Which one of us is Sima You Yue’s match?” Another person complained.
“We’re really unlucky to actually bump into her here.”
“Big Brother, is that Sima You Yue really that powerful? There are so many of us. Do we have to be afraid of just the few of them?”
“You know shit! You better shut up!” The one she called Big Brother slapped that person on the arm and the younger brother was incredibly aggrieved.
She was just a little child, what was there to be afraid of?
“Boss, what do we do now?”
“What else can we do? We should hurry up and leave!” The Boss said angrily.
“But this is an Emperor’s tomb! Are we going to give up on it just like that?”
“I, your Boss, know! Now get lost unless you want to die.”
The Boss waved his hand impatiently at the people beside him. When he looked at them, his heart hurt even more.
He had happened to obtain a map and, as he followed what was written on it, he found this place. He didn’t expect that he would bump into Sima You Yue even before he managed to enter.
He had stayed in Fair Eastern City before, and saw the battle with the ghost clan with his own eyes. He had also seen how Sima You Yue had performed back then. As the lightning calamities struck the ghost clansmen, it also struck his heart.
From then on, if you asked him who was the person he was the most afraid of, he would naturally say that it was exclusively Sima You Yue. He was afraid that, in any battle with her, she would strike him with lightning from the lightning calamity.
This was a tomb that he had found with much difficulty, and there were definitely huge amounts of rewards to be reaped.. If they were to empty it now… just thinking of it made his heart bleed.
However, if you wanted him to snatch it from Sima You Yue… he really didn’t dare to!
Hence, after thinking through it over and over again, he still took his people and left. He just waited for Sima You Yue and the others to leave before seeing whether or not he could pick up the scraps.
Sima You Yue was inside the cemetery when he heard the news that the scarlet bees told her. She couldn’t help but smirk.
Han Miao Shuang saw her smirking and asked curiously, “Junior Sister, what’s so funny?”
“The mice who have been trailing us are gone.” Sima You Yue smiled.
Sima Xiu Qi and the others knew that there were people following them. When they heard what Sima You Yue said, they were rather puzzled.
“Those people know that there’s a tomb inside here, but they actually left just like that?”
This wasn’t too normal, was it?
“I don’t know either. The person said that he saw that I had entered so he left. He looked really scared. Am I that terrifying?” Sima You Yue touched her face. She was rather good looking, though! Which part of her was scary?
They saw her innocent expression and heaved a collective sigh. It seemed like she wasn’t aware of how all the things that she’d done were rather scary to others.
Sima You Yue tossed this little incident to the back of her mind. They had entered the tomb, so they naturally had to give their fullest attention. Anything could happen at any time.
It was a good thing that the place they entered was a place that Sima Liu Xuan had come to before. If there were any hidden mechanisms, the husband and wife pair would have long since settled them. Even after walking half the way there, it was safe and uneventful.
They came to an underground river where Sima Liu Xuan said, “At that time, Ke Lo and I didn’t cross over here.”
Sima You Yue looked at that river and wondered why the people of the old days loved to cultivate beside rivers. It was a long underground river, and it split the tomb into two.
“Why didn’t you guys go over back then?”
“One reason was because Ke Luo was pregnant at the time and felt like it would be too dangerous over there. If it endangered our unborn child, we felt like it wouldn’t have been worth it. The second reason was because we had already obtained a few treasures, so we had no desire to.” When he mentioned Ke Luo, Sima Liu Xuan’s eyes carried traces of joy, earning a cold scoff from Feng Zhi Xing.
He would seize the opportunity to show off their love. He really deserved a beating, hmph.
Huang Ying Ying and the others felt like he had done well, though. “There are untold dangers inside. If anything had happened back then, we wouldn’t have had You Yue, who’s been such a fantastic granddaughter.”
“Mm, safety is of utmost importance.”
“Buzz buzz buzz-”
Heaven’s Halberd, which had been quiet for a long time, started to act up again. It moved about in her hand as if it were upset that she had stopped moving.
“It seems like this guy wants to cross the river.” Sima You Yue looked at it rather helplessly.
There was clearly only half left, so how could it still be so agitated.
“Looks like its other half is over that side.” Feng Zhi Xing said, “Do you want to cross over?”
Sima You Yue pursed her lips. Why did it feel like her master sounded a little peeved? She had no idea whether it was a good or bad thing for her master and father to be together.
“At that time, we mentioned before when we encountered Emperor Qing Dao’s divine consciousness that, if it were ever possible, we would let Heaven’s Halberd fuse back into one full piece. Now that we know that it is across the river, how would we not look for it. Furthermore, I believe that the owner of the tomb should be over there. Since we’re already here, we have to cross over to greet him.
Actually, she didn’t really care much for things like greeting the owner of the tomb. She just wanted to know whether or not this was Emperor Qing Dao’s tomb.
She had a feeling that she had some kind of connection with Emperor Qing Dao. Whether it be her obtaining Heaven’s Halberd back together or meeting him back at Heaven’s Pavilion, or meeting a hazy form of him back on the spatial ship, she felt like she had an inexplicable pull towards him.
However, she couldn’t explain it.
The other half of Heaven’s Halberd had gone missing long ago, so how did it end up appearing here? Was it just a coincidence?
Or could it be said that there really were others like her who had obtained half of Heaven’s Halberd and used it to guide them here, but ended up falling here?
They watched as Sima You Yue stood where she was with her expression changing over and over again. They had no idea what she was thinking
“You Yue, what are you worried about? Why not let your father and I head inside first to scout the area?” Feng Zhi Xing never forgot to drag Sima Liu Xuan in with him whenever he had the opportunity.
Mm, if there was danger, they had to face it together.
Sima Liu Xuan secretly rolled his eyes at him.
Sima You Yue raised her head to see the interaction between the two of them and her initial worry disappeared. The both of them loved to bicker, but they had a good relationship with each other. It was only because they really didn’t mind what happened in the past that they were able to exist so naturally together.
She smiled, saying, “Master, I was just thinking that the area over that side would be the main tomb. The coffin should be over there as well. Once we find the owner of the tomb, we will be able to ascertain whether or not this tomb belongs to Emperor Qing Dao.”
