Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
Sima You Yue accepted the Prince’s kindness and said that if she could return in time, she would go. However, if she was unable to return in time, then he didn’t need to reserve a place for her.
Shortly after, she bid goodbye to Murong Hui and left the arena with Mo Zhi. When the people of Vast Province learnt that she was leaving, they were at a loss for words and were unable to accept the news for a long time.
“How can she just leave?”
“Young Miss is not like us, she won’t stay in one place forever.”
“Oh, Young Miss, I will miss her!”
Murong Hui felt a little sad when he heard their words. He had taken her under his wing from the moment she had arrived in the Ghost Realm, and now she had flown the nest.
After the competition was over, the Prince of Great Yu announced this news to everyone.
“The list for the top ten in the Region has come out. Congratulations to those who have been promoted. I also have another news to announce. Murong Xi has left the competition due to some matters. Therefore, in the next round, there will only be nine competitors competing for the top nine places.
This news shook the whole arena. She just left like this? She wasn’t going to continue with the competition? Surely with her strength she was more than capable to attain higher than top ten.
They were very curious about what it was that made her willing to give up the competition.
Xiao Ruo Bai and Gongzi Yuan who were sitting in with the other spectators were also shocked by the news.
“She just left like this…” Xiao Ruo Bai felt a little disappointed deep down. With her departure today, would they ever encounter each other again?
“Xi’er didn’t even tell us she was leaving.” Gongzi Yuan complained in a low voice to conceal his sadness.
She had left after all, though as it was so sudden, they were all a little unprepared.
This news was too unexpected and they needed time to digest this.
At the same time, Sima You Yue had already left Geat Yu City with Mo Zhi. They flew towards the Nirvana River on Mo Zhi’s flying beast.
“Mo Zhi, why don’t we use the teleportation array?” Sima You Yue asked.
“I don’t like to use the teleportation array with so many people.” Mo Zhi replied.
Sima You Yue’s mouth twitched, was it a compulsive disorder? Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
“Then why don’t you build the teleportation array yourself? I heard from Yuan Yan that your arrays are quite powerful.”
“The array stones for long distance arrays have been used up, I am waiting for them to send me more.”
Sima You Yue: “…”
Was he serious?
She used to think that as the Young Master of the Mo Clan, he was quite good. But now they just seem like a bunch of quirks!
“How long will it take for us to fly there?” Sima You Yue asked.
“A few years, it will be quicker when they send me the things.” Mo Zhi replied.
Sima You Yue rolled her eyes: “What a waste of time. Why don’t I help you? Let’s set up the teleportation array together. I have plenty of array stones.”
Mo Zhi considered it for a second, and then he agreed. It really was a waste of time.
When they came to an open space, Sima You Yue took out a pile of stones and Mo Zhi helped her to set up the array.
Sima You Yue looked at the array and smiled: “Aren’t you afraid that I will learn your methods?”
Mo Zhi glanced at her sadly and said: “The Ancestor has imparted his underworld skills to you, why would I be afraid that you would learn such skills from me?”
Sima You Yue touched her nose, why did she have to touch on this sore subject?
“I say.” Mo Zhi stopped what he was doing and looked at her, “What did you do for the Ancestor?”
“What?” Sima Yue Yue didn’t understand what he meant.
“Let me protect you, and personally teach you underworld skills. Did he do anything else for you? Maybe let you become a member of the Mo Clan, or something else?” Mo Zhi asked sadly.
“No.” Sima You Yue understood his sadness, “The time we spent together wasn’t long, so he didn’t actually teach me that much. Wasn’t protecting me something that you both discussed? If you weren’t willing, he wouldn’t have forced you.”
“He won’t force me, but he will tell others about it.” Having said that, he sighed, “The Ancestor is too easily bought over, why didn’t those people understand it before!”
“What do you mean by easy? Did you know that your Ancestor wanted to kill me when he first met me?” Sima You Yue complained.
“Of course. He said that he was going to kill me for the Ghost Concubine. Your Ancestor’s strength is not something I can withstand. It was lucky that I knew how to brew tea, and I had quite a lot of tea with me, that’s how I managed to keep alive.” Sima You Yue said pitifully, which made Mo Zhi feel much better at last.
“Although it was not great in the beginning, fortunately, in the end it was fine.” Mo Zhi said, “You have the underworld skills Ancestor imparted to you so you can be regarded as his disciple. Even in the Mo Clan, your status is considered very high.”
“I’m still his Master!” Sima You Yue said.
Mi Zhi: “…”
It was considered an honour to be the disciple of the Ancestor of the Mo Clan, you want to be his Master?
However, his Ancestor may actually admit that.
He shook his head and continued to arrange the array.
“By the way, what happened at Nirvana River?” Though Sima You Yue had followed him out, she hadn’t asked him what had happened, “Could it be that my treasure has come early?”
Mo Zhi glanced at her, what treasure?!
“Something has happened to the clansmen I left there.” Mo Zhi said, “However, I have also had news that there has been quite a lot of movement over at Nirvana River recently.”
“Oh, is the treasure appearing?”
“I don’t know.”
“Then what’s wrong with your clansmen?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Apparently one goes missing every few days, and not even their bones are left. No matter how careful they are, it’s still happening.” Mo Zhi frowned slightly when he said this, he felt that this was not something ordinary people could do.
“Could they have been taken by the River Deity?” Sima You Yue asked.
“There’s no River Deity at Nirvana River.” Mo Zhi denied this, “We’ll know more when we get there.”
“Yes, then we better speed up.” Sima You Yue quickened her pace and the two of them worked together to arrange the array quickly.
“Huan, come here.” She beckoned towards Huan. Huan, who had been standing silently at the side, walked over. The three of them stood in the teleportation array and disappeared.
Because the distance was too far, they had to change several teleportation arrays. Finally, after a month of travelling, they arrived on the other side of the river.
“The space near Nirvana River is unstable, we can’t use teleportation arrays for the remainder of the journey.” Mo Zhi said.
“Well, we will sit on the flying beast then.” Sima You Yue looked into the horizon.
She didn’t know why, but when she arrived at this place, the throbbing in her heart became more obvious.
“Could it really be that some treasure is calling out to me…”
