Chapter 1718: Tree of Souls

Sima You Yue looked at the spirit beast and finally understood why those people would all die here.

She inwardly appraised her strength versus her opponent’s strength and the chances of victory were… zero.

However, she glanced at Qing Yi, who was by her side, and managed to control her limbs that wanted to run away. He was still the most powerful one here.

However, the other party did not directly try to kill them like she expected. Instead, it stared at the three of them for a long while before saying, “My Master extends an invitation.”

After speaking, he turned around and gracefully… walked away.

Sima You Yue and Little Seven exchanged glances. They blinked in confusion before following after that spirit beast.

Qing Yi saw the both of them acting like them and shook his head helplessly as he followed after them as well.

The Spirit Beast took them very far. Sima You Yue could sense that there were the auras of multiple spirit beasts on the way here. They were even very strong. Those auras were trained on them the moment they entered their territory, all the way till they left. If not because of that spirit beast leading the way, they would have probably already charged out.

“Do these spirit beasts belong to the Sage Pavilion?” Little Seven asked, “If they do, that would be problematic.”

In her heart, Sima You Yue would eventually fight with the Sage Pavilion because the Sage Pavilion had participated in too many events involving the extermination of the Ximen Clan. Furthermore, Paramount Valley had exterminated the Zong Zheng Clan and the Yin Yang Palace. She had also acted against the benefits of the Sage Pavilion, and the most important was that she had taken away the dignity of the Sage Pavilion. Based on the nature of the Sage Pavilion, they would never put up with it and would definitely find an opportunity to retaliate. Also, the fact that, if they knew that Sima You Yue was the Complete Spirit Master that they were looking for, they would definitely kill her.

If these spirit beasts belonged to the Sage Pavilion, then it was very problematic for her and they were definitely a formidable opponent!

When the spirit beast walking in the front heard what Little Seven Said, it sneered, “In this world, apart from Master, who would be able to get us to form an alliance?”

That tone showed complete disdain for the Sage Pavilion.

Sima You Yue pursed her lips. In her heart, she wondered what the heck they were doing with the Sage Pavilion then.

After walking for a long time, Sima You Yue thought that they hadn’t really gone that far, but it was later on that she realised that they were already quite a distance from the Sage Pavilion.

She thought about how leisurely the spirit beast was walking before and it looked so simple. Every step was extremely calculated. Sima You Yue was shocked as she secretly thought, “Flying Steps!”

“We’re here, let’s go in.”

Sima You Yue didn’t know where they had walked to. She took a step forward and felt as if she had entered a forest. She felt a lot more comfortable.

“This is… the power of the soul.” Qing Yi felt the aura floating in the sky and knew who it was.

Little Seven had thought of it too as she pulled Sima You Yue’s hand and cried out excitedly, “Yue Yue, Yue Yue, I know who this guy is! These things in the air are extremely good, you should absorb more of it. When we return, we should con it into coming back with us. Then we would have profited a lot!”

Sima You Yue was incredibly surprised, “Is it that powerful?”

“Do you know what it is? It’s the Tree of Souls that Qing Yi mentioned about before! If you can absorb its essence, it will be very beneficial in increasing the strength of your soul!” LIttle Seven took a deep breath, “This is the aura that it releases. Don’t you feel so comfortable after breathing it in?”

Sima You Yue was stunned. It was actually a divine tree that was as famous as the Tree of Life.

“Haha, this brat. It’s been so many years but you’re still the same.” An elderly voice sounded beside them. It was as if the person speaking was standing right beside them.

“Grandfather White, Grandfather White!’ Little Seven let go of Sima You Yue’s hand and jumped up excitedly.

“Elder White.” Qing Yi greeted him respectfully as well.

This Tree of Souls was even older than the Tree of Life!

“Qing Yi, you have finally become a true Tree of Life today.” Elder White sounded excited, “I never thought that we would live till today.”

“Grandfather White, where are you!” Little Seven pouted her little lips when she couldn’t see the Tree of Souls.

A white ray of light surrounded them, and they immediately appeared in another place.

Its body was different from Qing Yi’s large one. Sima You Yue only saw an aging tree stump. Its circumference was just a few people’s width, and was only a few metres high. On it were a few white leaves.

“Grandfather White, how have you become this way!” Little Seven saw the Tree of Souls and her eyes were red. She ran over to support the branches, touching those white leaves gingerly. Her tears slowly dripped down.

“Haha, don’t be sad.” A soft shoot grew from the Tree of Souls’s branches, cupping her face gently.

“Grandfather White, how have you become this way? Where is your expanse treetop? Your branches!” Little Seven was devastated. She thought that she could have a reunion between old friends, but she didn’t expect that he would actually end up in this state.

“Child, do not cry. To be alive and meet again is something that we should be happy about.” The Tree of Souls comforted her.

“Elder White, how did you…” Qing Yi walked over and touched the creases of the Tree of Souls, his voice a little hoarse.

“Qing Yi, you’ve grown up.”

Qing Yi blinked, holding back his tears as he asked, “Elder White, what is going on? How did you end up this way?”

“Sigh…” The Tree of Souls let out a long sigh. Suddenly, he sensed that Little Seven’s aura was off and a bout of energy lightly passed through her body, “You formed a contract with a human?”

“I did.” LIttle Seven nodded. She pointed at Sima You Yue and said, “This is my contracted master.”

“How did you form a contract with a human? Were you forced into it?”

“I wasn’t, Grandfather White. Yue Yue did it to save me.” Little Seven told him what had happened. With Qing Yi as her witness, Tree of Souls did not make things difficult for Sima You Yue.

However, Sima You Yue still sensed a bout of energy entering her consciousness. She saw the scene of the day that she had formed a contract with Little Seven, as well as her usual interactions with Little Seven. That energy quickly retracted.

“Not bad, it is rare for there to be a human like you.”

Little Seven grabbed onto Tree of Souls’s branches and said, “Grandfather White, you haven’t told us how you ended up this way! How did you end up like this! Did the Sage Pavilion do anything to you?”

“It’s nothing much.” Tree of Souls was not willing to say much about it.

Qing Yi plunged his energy deep into the ground before crying out, “You’ve been imprisoned!”

“What? Imprisoned? Grandfather White, how did you end up imprisoned here? Did the Sage Pavilion do that?” Little Seven immediately hopped up, “I just knew that the Sage Pavilion was trash! I didn’t expect that they would actually dare to hurt you!”

Sima You Yue saw that Qing Yi and Little Seven had such a big reaction and asked, “What’s wrong?”

Little Seven immediately ran back to Sima You Yue’s side and pulled her hand, saying, “Yue Yue, save Grandfather White! Grandfather White is so pitiful!”

Sima You Yue patted her hand, saying, “Do you still need to say these kinds of things? But don’t you first have to let me know what’s going on?”
