Chapter 172: Spirit Beast invasion
"Actually they are named North, South and West according to their direction, as for why is there no kingdom in the east, that is because there is an endless sea in that direction. It is a vast sea, which why there isn't a kingdom." Bai Yun Qi answered.
"A sea?" Sima You Yue thought of the earth, which had seven continents and four oceans. She didn't seem to think anything weird and said, "Then there isn't any one residing at the sea?"
"I'm not sure if there is anyone residing there." Ouyang Fei said, "Because it is more dangerous in the sea than in the Sofia Mountain Range, it is rare for people to go there, if there are people residing in the sea, there isn't anyone there who came to the mainland.
"It is actually more dangerous than Sofia Mountains?" Fatty Qu said in shock, "Could it be that there are spirit beast inside the sea?"
"It naturally will." Bai Yun Qi said, "I heard from people from over there before, the spirit beasts in the sea are much stronger than the spirit beasts in the land. Also, many of them come in groups, if you encounter them, there will be up to thousands or ten thousands of them."
Everyone thought of being surrounded by more than a thousand of them and couldn't help but shudder.
Everyone talked and drank all the way until midnight. Sima You Yue returned to the room that was arranged. After expelling the wine, they began practicing again.
If it was as according to what Wang Lei and the others said, Sima Clan was truly a first class power tier. If so, her current strength was not enough. She needed to make use of any time she had to practice.
She cultivated for four days, and in these four days, there was not a single person who came to disturb her. Four days later, she continued to practice. Sensing that there were people wandering outside, she opened the door and went out.
Bai Yun Qi was, in fact, wandering around the courtyard. Hearing that Sima You Yue's house was quiet, he did not knock on the door. Seeing that she came out, he walked two steps over, saying, "You Yue, you came out."
"Yun Qi, what is the matter?" Sima You Yue looked around, the rest was not present, asked, "Where is Zi Qi and the rest?"
"They have all gone up the city wall." Bai Yun QI said, "I was initially there too, but I came here to look for you right after upon receiving the news from my father. I also went to see if you were still practicing since I was here."
"Is it news of the Sima Clan?" Sima You Yue asked.
"That's right, Sima Lin, Sima Ke, Sima Qing are people from the Sima Clan in Central Wu Kingdom. Seems like your grandfather should be there too." Bai Yun Qi said.
"Since we have confirmed their location, that is good enough." Sima You Yue said.
"Is it the beast tide?"
"That's right. Zi Qi and the rest are at the city walls, let us quickly make our way there too. I will tell you the rest of the details on the way there." Bai Yun Qi said with some worries on the situation there.
Because the situation was urgent, both of them flew straight to the city wall from the residence.
As it turned out, on the second day that Sima You Yue and the rest arrived at the residence, the people who went out to check the situation came back. They brought back unfavorable news.
Just as Little Roar said, within Sofia Mountain Range, the spirit beasts were all restless and agitated. The spirit beasts in the central areas had all migrated to the peripheries. This situation was somewhat different from the previous beast tide, however, their destination was definitely towards Three Springs City.
At first, they thought was the spirit beast would wait for a period of time before their next attack. This was because each time a beast tide occurred in the past, there would at least be a large part of the month's time for them to prepare. However, it was different this time. On the second morning of the day since the news was passed, the guard of the capitals realised that the beasts were invading.
Wang Lei quickly assembled his men and came to the top of the wall immediately. He realised that the beasts that just came, did not attack the people, but encircled the city wall, guarding defensively as if they were waiting for some person to arrive.
Sima You Yue and Bai Yun Qi flew over. The people on the wall all saw them but didn't say anything. Although usually it is not allowed to fly in the skies of the city, but at the present moment it is unusual, all these are not what people are concerned about.
"You Yue, you're here." Bei Gong Tang and the rest saw Sima You Yue landing at their side and said.
They all knew that there were times where Sima You Yue would take a very long time whenever she had a breakthrough. That was why they told Bai Yun Qi not to bother her when they saw that the house was quiet. They waited for her to wake up on her own.
"How's the situation?" Sima You Yue asked.
"Take a look for yourself." Wei Zi Qi stepped aside to let Sima You Yue stand at the front.
Sima You Yue took a glance at the situation below and sucked in a breath in shock when she saw.
"So many Spirit Beasts!"
There were crowds of Spirit Beasts squeezed together before, filling up every single space below, stretching even to the foot of the Sofia Mountain Range. They numbered hundreds of thousands!
"Frightening, right?" Fatty Qu look a look at the Spirit Beasts below and said, "I was thinking whether or not the entirety of Spirit Beasts from Sofia Mountain Range was here."
"There's too many of them! Even though we have these people here, will we be able to hold it back?" The voice of a Spirit Master was heard, and it sounded quite timid.
It was not only that Spirit Master. There were many there who had lots of questions in their heart. There were so many Spirit Beasts, but only a thousand of them. Would they be able to hold them back?
Sima You Yue looked at the people on the wall and asked, "Yun Qi, have you seen any of these Spirit Beasts before? Are there always so many Spirit Beasts?"
Bai Yun Qi never thought that he would go on a wild goose chase. It looked like the Spirit Beasts had added in number by quite a bit. Hearing Sima You Yue ask him this question, he shook his head, saying, "I came the last time the Spirit Beasts arrived. At the time, my uncle said that, at most, there was double the amount of spirit beasts. However, that wasn't even half of this current number.
Wei Zi Qi narrowed his eyes, "The last Beast Tide was less than half a year ago. Also, it looks like they're waiting in formation below. Looks to me like it was man-made. Since this is the case, there must be a reason. We need to think of a way to find out what this reason is. Perhaps then, there will be a solution to this."
Once Bai Yun Qi heard this, his eyes flashed as he patted Wei Zi Qi's shoulder, saying, "What Zi Qi said is true. How could I have not thought about this earlier! I'm going to tell uncle!"
After he finished speaking, he ran towards the direction where Wang Lei was.
"Look, you all. There's a black bear on the left side, Isn't that the black bear that chased me until Fatty Qu lost his shoe?" Sima You Yue suddenly pointed to the front and said.
Fatty Qu looked over and there was truly that black bear that chased them, in the centre of a group of black bears.
"Well damn, it really is him!" Fatty Qu had a very lasting deep impression of that black bear. If Sima You Yue did not point anything out, they never would have noticed that group of black bears. Now that she said it, they immediately recognised it.
It was as if that black bear could sense the gazes of Fatty Qu and the others as he looked towards them. It seemed that he could recognise them at a glance as well.
The black bear roared loudly at them, but it did not make a single move.
"That black bear has the temper of a bomb. It should have charged at us immediately upon recognising us, but it actually merely roared twice." Ouyang Fei raised his eyebrows as he said.
"It is already a Saint beast. Since this is the case, this means…" Fatty Qu's eyes grew large in disbelief at his own conjecture.
