Chapter 1757: Struck by Lightning
After returning to Eternal Brilliance City, Sima You Yue was taken back to the City Lord Manor by Murong Hui. As for the result of the competition between Gong Zi Yuan and Cao Cheng An, she would know soon.
“You also don’t need to attend the Youth Exchange tomorrow. Take a good rest at home.” Murong Hui said.
“Thank you father.” Sima You Yue smiled.
“Silly child, you don’t need to be polite with your father.” Murong Hui reached out to rub her head, but he paused midair. He withdrew his hand. The atmosphere was a little embarrassing.
“It’s alright to think of me as Murong Xi.” Sima You Yue looked at him. “I know that is the reason you did that today.”
“She was not so narcissistic. She felt that a person who did not know her that long would not take risks for her. It was because she looked like his daughter. Perhaps, he was pitting his affections for his daughter on her or perhaps, it was because he didn’t want to see her injured like his daughter.
Murong Hui was embarrassed to be seen through. He left with a sentence to rest well.
Sima You Yue looked at him from behind. She sighed and then returned to her courtyard. She ordered Ting Shan and Ting Shui to not allow anyone to disturb her and stepped into Spirit Pagoda.
Spirit Pagoda was still the same. She looked at the gray area, and her mood was a little depressed.
“Father, wait for me. I will let you out soon.” She murmured.
She stayed in the Spirit Pagoda for a while before going out. After telling Ting Shan and Ting Shui that she was going to cultivate and not for anyone to disturb her. Then she went into close cultivation.
She had touched the threshold of underworld fiend master. As long as she worked hard for the next few days, she would succeed.
She took out a black bead and washed it carefully several times. Then she swallowed it.
She felt her whole body was refreshed, as if all her pores opened and absorbed spirit power from heaven and earth.
“With this, I can definitely get twice the result with half the effort.” Sima You Yue said. “I don’t know who left this for her. It could not be ancestor because he had been trapped for many years. Who could it be?”
It made her uneasy that someone was treating her so well without any reason.
After that, she took out the jade bed and sat on it directly and cultivated on it.
With the dual effects of the jade bed and the black bead, her speed became much faster. She originally thought it would take ten days to advance, but she advanced on the third day.
Suddenly, she opened her eyes and a look of helplessness flashed in her eyes.
“I already became a soul body. I still can’t avoid this.” She sighed and put the jade bed away before going out.
The City Lord Manor was already a mess at this time. When Ting Shan and Ting Shui saw her come out, they warned, “Miss, don’t come out! It’s dangerous here!”
Sima You Yue saw the two were uncomfortable under the lightning in the air but they still guard outside. She comforted them, “It’s alright. I’ll be all right soon. I’ll go find father.”
Murong Hui put aside the matters in hand. The tribulation cloud appeared above the City Lord Manor. For such a big thing, no matter how important he had to put them aside.
“Master, why did a tribulation cloud appear all the sudden?” The steward was anxious. If this struck down, City Lord Manor would be finished!
“Go check if anything strange happens in the mansion!” Murong Hui ordered.
“Father, you don’t need to check.” Sima You Yue ran in from outside and grabbed Murong Hui’s hand. “Take me out of the city.”
“Xi’er, you want to go out? It is indeed safer to get out of the city this time. I will let someone take you one.” Murong Hui said.
The tribulation cloud was still expanding in the sky, almost covering the entire Eternal Brilliance City. The city was in turmoil. At this time, he as the City Lord could not leave.
“Father, this tribulation cloud came for me. As long as I leave, Eternal Brilliance City will be safe.” Sima You Yue explained.
“What did you say?” Murong Hui and the steward were surprised. How could the tribulation be for her?
“I don’t have time to explain now, take me out quickly. It’s useless to leave later.” Sima You Yue said anxiously.
At this time, the tribulation had not locked on the person. Once it locked on them, the entire city would be regarded as that person. She was afraid that this place would be destroyed. She could not help shiver at the consequence.
Murong Hui thought for a second before grabbing her hand. He opened a space tunnel and led her away.
When she disappeared from Eternal Brilliance City, the tribulation cloud slowly dissipated.
Murong Hui took her to a barren mountain, where there weren’t any underworld beasts. It wouldn’t injure others if she did the tribulation here.
Father, I will explain to you later. You should leave here now.” Sima You Yue demanded.
“But, can you bear it?” Murong Hui was a little worried.
“Don’t worry, I used to be struck by lightning a lot. It’s just that this is the first time since I arrived at Ghost Realm. Father, go quickly.”
Murong Hui saw her confident eyes and the rapid gathering of the tribulation cloud in the air. He no longer delayed and drew out of the range of tribulation.
Sima You Yue waited for him to leave and stopped suppressing the power in her body. She began to charge to underworld fiend master rank. The tribulation in the air had become a lot stronger after she was promoted.
Murong Hui’s location was just enough to avoid the tribulation and to clearly see Sima You Yue situation. When he discovered she was advancing and that the tribulation was getting more powerful because of her promotion, a glimmer of light flashed in his eyes.
“Boom——–“The soul power broke through the shackles and quickly circulated through her body. Everything became clearer, and it seemed to be back in her control again.
However, before she could enjoy this wonderful feeling, she met a huge energy above her head.
Only Little Purple came with her during her advancement. The cat was jumping in the air excitedly.
Sima You Yue stood up and looked up at Little Purple speechless. She picked it up and poked at its head. “Sister, I, will be leaving my life and death in your hands today.”
“Don’t worry, I will protect you.” Little Purple patted both paws.
Tribulation Lightning stuck down. Sima You Yue’s whole body stiffened as she fell to the ground with a thud.
She reacted the moment she fell. She was struck!
What, didn’t that trash cat say that it’ll protect her? Why did it let her get struck? A single lightning made her immobile.
Little Purple jumped on her. “Don’t worry, It’s is good to be struck. You only endured a third of the lightning just now!”
“Then you should remind me!” Sima You Yue glared at it.
Little Purple meowed. At this moment, the lightning fell down again. It leaped up and completely blocked the lightning in the air.
In the distance, Murong Hui noticed that Sima You Yue could not endure the lightning and was anxious. But when he saw the purple cat take the remaining lightning, he was extremely surprised.
