Chapter 1601: Anger at their own helplessness
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
That aura only swept past them temporarily, but their backs were covered with cold sweat.
Death. It was as if it would only take the other party a second of their time.
It was a good thing that the aura had no plans to kill them, so it left just as soon as it came.
Everyone felt as if they had a new lease on life.
Then, without waiting for them to relax completely, they felt the aura come closer again. In a few breaths worth of time, a woman clad completely in white appeared in front of them.
Snow white skin, snow white hair, snow white clothes, snow white shoes. When Sima You Yue looked at her, she wondered whether or not this lady was made of snow?
Aside from her, nobody else had the guts to look at the lady.
Sima You Yue looked at her. When she stood there, they couldn’t sense her aura, but she was terrifying all the same.
This should be the old monster that Helmsman Tuo had told her about, right?
The lady looked at Little Lucky who was in Sima You Yue’s embrace, and wanted to stretch out a hand to grab him, but Sima You Yue hugged him and took two steps back.
“Greetings to Senior.” Sima You Yue bowed as she hugged onto Little Lucky.
The lady only now took notice of Sima You Yue. “Who are you? What is your relationship with it?”
“This junior is named Sima You Yue. Little Lucky is the son of an old friend of mine.”
“Old friend? The ancient beasts have only come back recently, but they’re already considered an old friend?” The lady’s voice was light, but it was neither angry nor threatening.
“Indeed.” Sima You Yue was secretly afraid, but she showed no fear on her face. If it really came to blows, she wondered whether she or the old devil beast hiding in space was more powerful.
“The little guy has caught my attention. Leave him to me.” The lady said.
“My apologies, Senior. Little Lucky’s father has left him in my care and I cannot give him to you.” Sima You Yue said.
“You dare to defy my order? Are you not afraid that I will kill you?” The lady waved her hand and Sima You Yue felt a bout of energy pull her over. The lady immediately held her by the throat.”
Sima Liu Xuan and the others wanted to come over, but the lady stopped them with a glance, rooting them to the spot.
Little Lucky saw that the lady was attacking Sima You Yue and was incredibly anxious. He hurriedly attacked the lady.
They were initially quite near each other, and Little Lucky was very quick. Before the others had a chance to react, the lady had grabbed him.
“Don’t hurt him!” Sima You Yue could feel that it was getting hard to breathe and terror filled her eyes.
If anything happened to Little Lucky, what was she going to tell Supreme Fifth Spirit Senior?
“Senior, please stay your hand.” Huang Ying Ying and the others felt their hearts leap to their throat, all afraid that the lady would kill her if they weren’t careful.
The lady wasn’t a bloodthirsty person who killed wantonly. She merely grabbed Sima You Yue because she had resisted her. Although she held her by the throat, she wasn’t really intending to kill her.
“Senior, I know that you like Little Lucky, but you don’t wish to possess him. If you kill me, Little Lucky may not care about you.” Sima You Yue said slowly.
“You know what I’m thinking?”
“Senior, your eyes do not have desire. You are merely curious. So, I’m thinking that you just want to understand ancient spirit beasts more but you don’t wish to own him. Did I speak erroneously?” Sima You Yue analysed.
“Hmph, a witty brat.” The lady released Sima You Yue, allowing her to breathe properly again.
The hearts of the others also calmed down.
“Thank you, Senior, for the grace of not killing me.” Sima You Yue said gratefully.
“Are you so certain that I won’t kill you?”
“When we came here, I met a helmsman named Tuo. He said that, once we reached Rabbit Ear Mountain, if we bumped into Senior, we could just tell you his name. I’m guessing that he was so confident not because he was more powerful than you, but because you’re not someone who kills indiscriminately.” Sima You Yue said.
“Helmsman Tuo?” The lady’s solemn expression changed subtly when she heard that name, “Forget it. Since he wants to protect you people, I’ll give him this bit of face. Just let me play with this guy for two days. I’ll return him in ten days.”
After speaking, she ignored the reactions of Sima You Yue and the others as she took Little Lucky with her and left.
Everyone looked at her leave with helplessly.
“You Yue, are you okay?” Sima Liu Xuan went forward and saw the purple marks remaining on her neck and was extremely worried.
“Father, I’m okay.” Sima You Yue held onto his hand, now allowing him to examine her wounds.
“What do we do now?” An ancient spirit beast asked.
“We wait.” Sima You Yue no longer spoke after that, keeping her gaze on the direction which the lady left in.
The others had no other idea. The lady was so powerful, who would dare to go and snatch him back?
Since she said that she would turn Little Lucky in ten days, they could only trust her and wait.
This was the first time that she could only watch the situation unfold with open eyes without being able to do anything.
Her fists clenched tightly. If that lady really dared to do anything to Little Roar, she would definitely think of a way to get that devil beast to intervene.
If she definitely had to put her life at stake before he was willing to get involved…
She stood here for two days. For these two days, no matter who spoke to her, she did not acknowledge them.
“You Yue, since she said that she wanted ten days, there’s no point staying here. Come over and rest.” Feng Zhi Xing said with heartache.
He initially thought that it would be useless, but she moved and turned around to look at them.
It was good that she had some form of reaction.
“Junior Sister, you’ve already been standing there for two days. Come over and rest.” Han Miao Shuang walked over and grabbed her hands, pulling her over.
Sima You Yue nodded and came to rest where they had set up their tents.
They were right. There was no use standing there and waiting. They could only wait.
She freshened up inside the tent. When she went out again, she swept away her gloomy spirit and looked for Tao Yi Xuan, saying, “I’ll help you steal the position of Young Master back. You help me do something. If you promise me, I can help you halt his shrinking process.”
“Really?” Tao Yi Xuan felt like her depressed state before wasn’t good. She looked better this way.
“I have never said anything that I’m not confident of.” Sima You Yue said.
“What do you want me to do?” Tao Yi Xuan was moved, but he had to first know what her condition was.
“Help me find out the location of two people.”
“You just need to locate people?” Tao Yi Xuan felt like her condition was too simple, making it a little hard to believe.
Sima You Yue nodded, “It’s rather difficult to find two people on the entire island. However, I believe that with the power of the Tao clan, it won’t pose any kind of problem, right?”
Tao Clan. It was the largest clan in Vermillion Bird City. In the little book that Helmsman Tuo had given her, it was listed as number one.
“This means that you know of the Tao Clan. Then, you should know the situation we’re faced with? Just how difficult it will be to help me snatch the title of Young Master back, do you know?” Tao Yi Xuan asked.
“Of course I do.”
“Then you only need my help to find two people even though you’re helping me with such a difficult task?”
