Chapter 1725: Really shameless!

Sima You Yue flung her away, and Zong Zheng Han Yue was tossed far. Her head hit the wall heavily.
As she raised her head, fresh blood trickled down the side of her face. She glared maliciously at Sima You Yue, wishing she could chop her into ten thousand pieces.
Sima You Yue wiped her hand then tossed the cloth on the floor. She said disdainfully, “There’s no use looking at me like that. When you lied and made use of me, you should have known that a day like this would come for you.”
“Just kill me.” Zong Zheng Han Yue looked at her, “The you of the past would never treat your enemies like this. You said that you would just kill them all. Why would you leave me alive!”
“That is because I’ve never hated anyone like I hate you.” Sima You Yue’s expression twisted into a mask of hatred, “I want you to see how I take my steps to the very top while you can only stay here in despair forever, never to free yourself, living life in pain every single day!”
Zong Zheng Han Yue looked at Sima You Yue with disbelief.
Sima You Yue saw the pain, rage and hopelessness in her expression and smiled.
“Tomorrow, I will let you watch with your own eyes, as I exterminate the clan that you grew up in. I will crush your very last hope.”
After speaking, she turned around to leave. She instructed Little Spirit to remember to update Zong Zheng Han Yue on everything that was happening tomorrow.
Zong Zheng Han Yue lay on the floor and watched as she left. The tears that she had held back started to flow.
Sima You Yue left the Spirit Pagoda, her mood exceptionally good. She thought of how her mother had kept crying out to tell her not to take revenge just before she died, and to live happily instead.
“Mother, did you tell me that because you knew that people who carried vengeance in their hearts would be unhappy all their lives?”
On the second day, Sima You Yue went to the palace early in the morning. There was nothing that she needed to do today. She just had to accompany Qiu Zhi and stay by his side.
She recalled what she had found out yesterday night. When she looked at Qiu Zhi, she felt like he was a beast in human clothes.
“Stay by my side the whole way today, understand?” Qiu Zhi didn’t notice any difference in her behaviour and instructed her.
Sima You Yue felt like his tone was a little off as she asked, “Did something happen?”
“We only found out last night that, though we have no idea how the ancient spirit beasts managed to get the information, they are rushing over here right now. The events of today might not progress as smoothly as we hope.” Qiu Zhi said, “Supreme Fifth Spirit Senior is very powerful. The other ancient spirit beasts aren’t easy to deal with either. Just remember to stay close to me.”
“Mm, I understand.” Sima You Yue replied.
Seeing that the timing was around there, Qiu Zhi led everyone over to the plaza. Sima You yue quietly followed behind them. Before they even arrived at the plaza, they could feel various pressures coming from inside.
It seemed like the Sage Pavilion had quite a high status. The people that they invited to participate in this were not of the average strength.
After walking in, the entire plaza quieted down. Qiu Zhi walked to the main seat and sat down. Sima You Yue came by his side and sat beside him. Her position was even higher than the Vice Pavilion Master of the Sage Pavilion.
“Guests, welcome to our gathering today. We have been rather busy these days and have not hosted you well, please forgive us.” Qiu Zhi said courteously as the people below replied that it wasn’t the case.
“Time is rather tight now, so I will not waste words. I will talk about the main point and discuss the main goal of our meeting today. Everyone here knows that the ancient beast clan has been more savage as of late. They massacre humans and snatch our land, chasing away the spirit beasts who originally occupied the area. They are too barbaric, and cause a huge threat to humans and spirit beasts. That is why we have to think of a way to defeat them today.”
“Pavilion Master Qiu, did you not say that you invited us here to discuss the Sky Splitter Devil Sword?” The people below asked.
“Indeed. The Sky Splitter Devil Sword is also on the agenda, but we will be leaving this topic for later. We first have to discuss the ancient spirit beasts.” Qiu Zhi said, “If we do not solve this issue, countless of us will face the threat of the ancient spirit beasts.”
“Pavilion Master Qiu is right. The ancient spirit beasts have been very aggressive lately. The men that we have sent out have all been killed.” Qiu Zhi had just spoken when someone immediately agreed. Sima You Yue glanced over. Wasn’t he Qiu Zhi’s very close friend?
She pursed her lips. Coming out at this time to speak was definitely to influence everyone’s mood no matter how one looked at it. She could tell at a glance that Qiu Zhi had specially arranged for it.
However, people like him wouldn’t arrange just one of them. No matter what, he would have arranged for a few of them. Only then would he be able to influence the others to agree.
As expected, after that person spoke up, a few others agreed as well. They ridiculed the ways of the ancient spirit beasts, and encouraged the others to band together to fight them.
Egged on by what these people said, the others began to feel engaged as well. They felt like the ancient spirit beasts had gone overboard and they should get rid of them.
“I wonder if Pavilion Master has thought of anything?” Someone finally pointed out the main question.
“Ancient Spirit Beasts are extremely powerful. If we deal with them alone, we won’t have much chances of victory. That is why, in order to defeat them, we will have to think of a way to band together to form an alliance, then defeat them.” Qiu Zhi said.
“That’s right. I heard that Supreme Fifth Spirit Senior is very powerful, as well as those ancient spirit beasts. If anyone can guide us, we won’t have to be so scared of them.”
“That’s not the only thing. If we are able to capture those ancient spirit beasts and form contracts with them will we not be able to become even stronger?”
“But even if we catch them, we can’t form contracts with them! They will never submit to a master, so we’ll have no way to tame them and hence no way to contract them.”
“Who said that we can’t contract them? Have you guys forgotten that there’s someone who has contracted many of them?”
“Are you talking about the Sima Clan from the Sixty Fourth State?”
“That’s right. They can contract that many ancient spirit beasts, which means that they definitely have a way to tame them. As long as we sincerely plead with them and obtain their method of taming beasts, even if they are ancient spirit beasts, we can still use them.”
Sima You Yue initially didn’t have much of an interest in their conversation, but when she heard them mention the Sima Clan, she raised her head and looked at them.
Excellent, they were extremely bold and their courage was worthy of praise. She just wondered whether or not they would be able to live till then!
“The Sima Clan isn’t to be messed with. Although they aren’t that powerful right now, that Sima You Yue is enough to give us a headache.”
“No matter how powerful she is, she can’t make an enemy of the entire continent, right? As long as we team up, that will not be a problem. A good beast taming method should have been shared with everyone from the start. Everyone, don’t you think so?”
Sima You Yue smiled, these people were really shameless!
“Vice Pavilion Master, you speak with such righteousness. In that case, will you be willing to share your sect’s martial arts with everyone?” She spoke up.
