That day, a group of people stayed in her courtyard very late until Liang Wu Ming interrupted when she came back to her senses that she needed to rest. Anyways, in this short time, she was not leaving. Thinking about it, everyone agreed this was a place she would be reluctant to leave.
Sima You Yue let Ximen Feng, Bei Gong Tang, and them stay behind.
“Feng’er, have you and Xiang Yi come to a consensus? When will you get married? How are the preparations for the betrothal?” There were fewer people now. She took themt o the living room.
“The betrothal gift has long been prepared. I waited for you to come back before setting the date. She will be here tomorrow. We can set the date together.” Ximen Feng showed tenderness when Kong Xiang Yi was mentioned.
“That’s good. You have waited for so many years. The continent has been in chaos recently. If you can get married sooner, then marry sooner.” Sima You Yue urged. “I will go ask them to find some good days tomorrow. After Xiang Yi’s back, we can pick a date from it.”
“Sure.” Ximen Feng also wanted to get married as soon as possible. He had no comments on her proposal.
“For invitations, you can send them out when the date is set. The time shouldn’t be too tight. You have to give people time to come over.” Sima You Yue continued. “You can use this matter to get closer with other forces. That will give us an extra layer of protection in the future.”
“You Yue, do you mean the black clothed men when you refer to the continent in chaos?” Wei Zi Qi asked.
“More than that.” Sima You Yue replied. “The black robed men are just one aspect. Their main activity is in the inner regions with some in the inter regions. The most troublesome part is the undead and the qi spirits.”
“Undead and qi spirits?”
“Mm.” Sima You Yue explained the details about the undead and the qi fpsirits. “Although the matter of the qi spirits didn’t occur many times, once it starts, I am afraid it will spread to the inner regions. On the other hand, undead had now spread in the inner regions.”
“Moreover, the whereabouts of the Sky Splitter Devil Sword is unknown. Many forces have been implicated because of suspicion. In addition, the appearance of an ancient divine beast will cause a lot of unrest.” Sima You Yue added, “As for the strength and area of impact caused by things, we don’t need to mention it.”
“I haven’t heard of that many things happening. It seems the world is really going chaotic.” Ximen Feng sighed.
“What?” Sima You Yue felt what he saw was a bit wrong.
Ximen Feng pondered for a bit before deciding to let her know.
Because of Wu Lingyu, I am more concerned about the Devil Realm.” He glanced at Sima You Yue, fearing that she would be angry. Seeing her expression unchanged, he continued, “Although I don’t know what happened there, it has been very turbulent over there recently with constant battles and numerous casualties.”
Sima You Yue was silent for a while before beginning, “Lingyu went to the Devil Realm cause the matter between him and the Devil Emperor to be brought to the forefront.”
“So that’s the case.” Ximen Feng knew that there was something between Wu Lingyu and the Devil Emperor. Now the conjecture was confirmed, his heart felt at ease. “In addition, Ghost Realm is going through troubled times with constant fighting.”
“The three realms, human, devil and ghost are in turmoil. This world seems to be going through a major cleansing.” Ouyang Fei frowned. “It is just the beginning. I don’t know what will become of the future.”
“Under such circumstances, it is impossible to work alone.” Bei Gong Tang was worried.
“We can’t stop these things from happening. So what we can do now is upgrade our strength and gain more protection in these troubled times.” Sima You Yue concluded. “Have you all contracted the ancient divine beasts I gave you last time?”
“Mm, those are your words? As soon as I contracted it, my strength was on the rise.” Fatty Qu smiled. “If there are more such beasts in the future, I won’t be afraid of the crane tail.”
“You just want to take the shortcut.” Bei Gong Tang glared at him.
“Heh heh, this is not a worry. My strength is too low. What if I drag you down?” Fatty Qu said.
“Don’t be like that. Your talent is not lower than ours. You’re just lazy.” Wei Zi Qi directly exposed him. “Right now, half heartedly.”
“I did not.” Fatty Qu protested in a low voice.
“It’s not too late to change.” Sima You Yue watched Fatty Qu’s aggrieved look and chuckled. “You like refining weapons. You can refine more offensive and defensive weapons in the future. This can be considered an improvement in your strength. As for the others, leave it aside for now.”
“Mm, I think so too. I will use the remaining time to cultivate. Did you use the thunderbolt bullets I gave you last time?”
“I did! I didn’t use it alone.” Sima You Yue explained that everyone used the thunderbolt bullets to blow up the imprisonment on the island and the Hao Clan house into ruins. Seeing them staring at her, she asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Your senior brothers were right.” Wei Zi Qi said. “No matter where you go, things will happen. Thrilling things happened around you.”
“Unfortunately, our current strength is too low. Although contracting with an ancient divine beast raised us to monarch rank. We can’t go with you to roam.” Bei Gong Tang said regretfully.
“You’re at monarch rank?” Sima You Yue didn’t pay attention to their strength. She took a closer look and nodded happily. “Your strength has risen very fast. Although Fatty Qu is still at the end of crane tail, he has entered monarch rank. I didn’t expect it to be so soon.”
“It’s not fast compared to you.” Wei Zi Qi said. “When we were younger, we were about the same level. Now you are several levels above us.”
“I’m also in monarch rank.” Sima You Yue said. It was just a few levels higher than them. “Most people at our age don’t have that much strength as us. So don’t be upset.”
“That’s true.” Not to mention the lower continent, in the Primordial Lands, most people only reached monarch rank when they are over a hundred years old. Almost none of them entered monarch rank when they were in their 60s and 70s.
Therefore, their talents were good. But Sima You Yue at the front, they always felt that they were far behind.
“As you said, now we still have to improve our strength. Otherwise, when the troubled times come, we won’t be able to save our lives.” Ouyang Fei said.
“Mm, you all are experts. Get more life saving things for yourself.” Sima You Yue pondered for a bit. She took out a bunch of things and stuffed them in their hands. These were all found in Hao Clan house.
On the second day, Ximen Feng chose a few dates. A few days later, Kong Xiang Yi arrived at Heartbreak Valley. The three people got together and silently discussed for a long time before settling on a day. In order to give others plenty of time, the wedding date was set in nine months.
As soon as the wedding date was determined, Sima You Yue and the others began creating invitations and sending them. Soon, news of Ximen Feng was about to get married spread all over the outer, inner and inter regions. Those who received the invitations said they would go, and some who did not receive the invitations were ready to move.
