Chapter 1761: Luring the Snake out of the Hole
Sima You Yue chuckled. She didn’t agree nor decline.
“Let’s watch the competition.” She shouted toward the arena. The following match had already begun.
“Mm, let’s watch.” Xiao Ruo Bai agreed. “Gongzi Yuan, when you go back, give them feedback on their strength. If they don’t do well, they’ll get punished.”
“Is this guy here to listen to the news? You are a traitor!” Cao Cheng An looked at Gongzi Yuan in shock.
He knew he was from a big clan, but he didn’t expect they’re from their duchy.
“You already call him boss? You still don’t know him at all.” Xiao Ruo Bai said. Then she turned to Sima You Yue, “This guy is from a neighboring duchy.”
“Don’t say that. I am not a traitor. Your duchy’s city competes on their own.” Gongzi Yuan refuted. “Furthermore, these people are not stronger than our duchy’s. In the final competition, these people can’t make it.”
His words held contempt for these people.
“There is still duchy competition beside city competition?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Right! There also competition between kingdoms in addition to duchy competition. Those who can win from the kingdom level can receive personal reception of the Ghost King and vigorous training of ghost clan. Of course, those who can rise from the duchy receive guidance from the kingdom, and those who can rise from the city will receive guidance from the duke.” Gong Zi Yuan explained.
“That’s a really long process of competition.” Sima You Yue sighed.
“Actually, it’s alright. The city competition, duchy competition, and the kingdoms competition are all a year apart. This year is the city competition, next year is the duchy competition, and after the next year is the kingdom competition.” Xiao Ruo Bai continued. “So that way people can heal their injuries during the period of time and further improve their strength.”
Sima You Yue finally understood. No wonder why these people were so desperate. Regardless of whether it was in the Human Realm or the Ghost Realm, the resources for cultivation were not so sufficient.
Because there were no restrictions on deaths, the people on the stage directly stabbed their opponent to death. It was a member of Mu Clan who had obtained victory, and a loose cultivator who died.
Sima You Yue looked at the person unwillingly, wide eyes. She felt a little sad in her heart.
He was just looking for a good future, but he lost his life when he embarked on the journey.
Soon, someone came to pulled the body down. The person from Mu Clan waved to the crowd happily.
“Without strength or no background, one is nothing in this world.” She murmured.
“This world has always been unfair. If things were reversed, Mu Clan member was killed, then this loose cultivator would not be able to survive. Similarly, if he was a disciple of a large clan, others would leave him alive because of the force behind him. If one were to say this person was sad, it would be better to say that his birth was too sad.” Xiao Ruo Bai said with emotion.
“World dao.” Sima You Yue narrowed her eyes. “I don’t want to watch it. Do you want to continue?”
“You just came. Are you going back?” Xiao Ruo Bai asked.
“I’m not interested anymore.” She stood up. “You can keep watching.”
The purpose of her coming here lure out the people behind. Now that her purpose had been achieved, the other party knew that she was still alive. They would definitely show themselves. Therefore, there was no need for her to stay here anymore.
“I’ll go back with you.” Xiao Ruo Bai followed and stood up. “If someone was watching you just now, it would be too dangerous for you to go back alone.”
Gongzi Yuan also stood up. The meaning was obvious. He wanted to go with them.
Cao Cheng An looked at the three of them, wondering if he should go.
“You can stay here and watch. By then tell us today’s result.” Gongzi Yuan subconsciously didn’t want Cao Cheng An to join them.
He did not want to share Sima You Yue’s secret with others now.
In the beginning, why did he tell Xiao Ruo Bai? He felt that his brain was not working.
Sima You Yue led the two out of the venue. Shortly after they left, some people quietly left.
Not long after, a scream echoed in an ordinary room. “She didn’t die?”
“The people we sent had clearly injured her seriously and forced her off the cliff. How did she survive without spirit power protecting? Is this news certain?”
“The news that our people sent back before they were killed did say so. But what this subordinate saw today is also true. Murong Xi is still alive.”
“Boss, the above stated that we must kill Murong Xi. We have reported the news. Now if they know that she is not dead, we don’t have a way to report our accomplishment.” Another person said.
“With her temperament, I’m afraid we won’t be able to escape.” Boss’s voice trembled a little as if afraid of the people behind.
“Boss, what we can do is kill Murong Xi. Even if the above is known, we can make up for our mistake. That way we can preserve our lives?”
The boss pondered for a while. “We can only do this now. Bring our brothers together from other places. We will find a chance to take action.”
“Boss, if we want to take action, it is best to do it at the Youth Exchange. At this time, Murong Hui will be busy.”
“Go investigate the news first.”
After Gongzi Yuan and Xiao Ruo Bai sent her back to the city lord mansion, she looked at the figure far away at the end of the street. “I can’t see many competitions when I go back now. Would you like to come in for tea?”
“Alright!” Both Gongzi Yuan and Xiao Ruo Bai felt they were getting along with her. They didn’t mind getting closer.
“Then please come in.”
Gongzi Yuan and Xiao Ruo Bai followed Sima You Yue to her courtyard. Sima You Yue led them to the pavilion by the lake.
Although most things in the Ghost Realm were gray or dark, the delicately manicured garden was still very beautiful. Especially since the pavilion was set up by the lake, the terrain was also higher. It was very pleasant to drink tea by the lake.
Seeing that Sima You Yue really took out the tea making tools, Xiao Ruo Bai and Gongzi Yuan were a little surprised.
Xiao Ruo Bai laughed. “Are you actually making tea for us?”
“This is tea is obtained from my father. Although it is not good as Dragon Well Tea. It is considered the top in the whole Ghost Realm.” Sima You Yue said. “Would you like to try my tea?”
“If it was Murong Xi from before, I would definitely say no. Since it is you, we can give it a try.” Xiao Ruo Bai came to her and sat down. Gongzi Yuan sat down on the other side.
Sima You Yue quickly brewed the tea and gave each of them a cup.
Gongzi Yuan and Xiao Ruo Bai stood up and took a sip. Both of them frowned.
