Chapter 1862: Down Into The River

Translator: Misty Cloud Translations  Editor: Misty Cloud Translations

“You want to kill the Vapour Beast?”

“That’ll depend. Huan, didn’t you say that the Vapour Beast bears grudges? After I hurt it today, it will surely come looking for me for revenge.” Sima You Yue said, “Rather than wait for it to look for me, it’s better that I look for it first. As the saying goes, take its life when it’s hurt, isn’t that right?”

“That’s right.” Huan agreed, “Rather than waiting for it to recover from its injuries and come to look for you to seek revenge, it is better to look for it now.”

“However, we are not familiar with the situation at the bottom of the river. If we go down like this, we might encounter danger.” Mo Zhi was a little worried, “Why don’t I instruct Mo Zhan to take some men down and investigate the situation first.”

“They can’t see the Vapour Beast. Besides, all of them together can’t compare to one Huan, why let them take the risk?” Sima You Yue said.

“That’s…. Right!” Mo Zhi agreed. She didn’t have to be so direct though!

“Then it’s settled! Huan and I will go down.” Sima You Yue looked at Huan after speaking and said with a smile, “Do you have any objections with that Huan?”

“I have no objections, but I need to wait for someone. We will go down once he arrives.” Huan had no objection to her arrangements as long as he was able to follow her to protect her.

“Who are we waiting for?”

“Black Shadow.”

“Black Shadow is coming too?”

“He has been here lately.” Huan said, “I think that he will be quite familiar with this place, and we will also have a guide when we go down.”

“And another fighter?” Sima You Yue smiled, “In the past when you all didn’t want to do it, you would always send him, under the pretense that you were training him.”

“He likes this kind of exercise.” Huan replied shamelessly. After he had contacted Black Shadow, it didn’t take long before he showed up.

As soon as Black Shadow saw Sima You Yue, he ran over excitedly and hugged her. He wailed: “Young Miss! Oh, Black Shadow can finally see you again!”

Huan pulled him off Sima You Yue and said in disgust: “Shameless!”

“What do you mean by that?” Black Shadow waited for him, “If you hadn’t been following Young Miss, you would feel exactly the same way as I do now! No, you would be even more excited!”

“I won’t be as shameless as you!” Huan said.

“Hmph, if you hadn’t seized this opportunity, I would be the one guarding Young Miss!” Black Shadow was very upset about this, “If you hadn’t cheated back then, I wouldn’t have lost!”

“That’s called being witty!” Huan glanced at him with an obvious look, why blame me for yourself being stupid?

Sima You Yue looked at Huan who was getting Black Shadow extremely agitated and quickly grabbed him back. She said, “Alright alright, the two of you are always fighting.” He was always being bullied by Huan as well.

“Since Young Miss has ordered us to stop, then I will stop.” Black Shadow obeyed Sima You Yue and kept quiet.

“Black Shadow, why did you come to the River of Oblivion?” Sima You Yue asked.

“Well…” Black Shadow looked at Huan and when he saw him shaking his head, he said: “Well, the King gave me a mission, that’s why I’m here.”

“The Underworld King Sent you to the River of Oblivion? What are you doing here?” Sima You Yue was curious, hadn’t the Underworld King claimed that he hadn’t participated in the matters of the Ghost Realm for a long time?

“Well… You’ll find out later! I can’t tell you yet!” Black Shadow looked at Sima You Yue pleadingly and hoped that she would stop questioning him. If she were to continue asking him questions, he would no doubt not be able to help himself and tell her everything. This would go against the Underworld King’s wishes for them to meet by themselves, and they would no doubt be punished.

When Sima You Yue saw how torn he was, she was even more curious. Was it something shameful he was hiding? Would the Underworld King do such things?

At this moment in time, she had no idea that she was related to the matter.

Black Shadow and Huan looked at her curious eyes and their mouths twitched. They didn’t realise that she enjoyed gossip so much now. When she found out that this matter was related to her, would she be so angry with the King that she had cramps.

Luckily, she empathised with them and didn’t continue asking.

“Black Shadow, how much do you know about the situation at the bottom of the river?”

“Very well, both the Nirvana River and the River of Oblivion. Young Miss, where do you want to go?” Black Shadow asked with a sigh of relief and smiled.

“Do you know where the Vapour Beast is?”

“Vapour Beast? Yes, I do! Although the beast’s strength is not strong, it is very cunning and hard to catch! What did that beast do to provoke Young Miss?” Black Shadow asked.

“Something happened.” Sima You Yue recounted the situation where the Vapour Beast was eating people and had been injured by her.

“That beast wouldn’t dare to provoke Young Miss even if it had ten guts, otherwise I would take it out!” Black Shadow was quite familiar with the Vapour Beast. If the beast really had provoked her, he wouldn’t let it off!

Sima You Yue stared at him: “How do you know so much about these underworld beasts?”

“Ahem, I’ve been here for such a long time, naturally I have gained some understanding about them.” Black Shadow was vague. Could he say that someone had a bad temper, but was unable to seek the Underworld King to vent his frustration, hence, he had decided to bother the underworld beasts at the bottom of the river and collect their spiritual energy to offer it as a present for her? As that someone’s protector and troublemaker, naturally, he also hung out at the bottom of the river and there wasn’t anything he didn’t know about the bottom of the river!

“Since you know everything, then let’s go to the bottom of the river and resolve this problem. Then we will go and seek another strange treasure.” Sima You Yue said.

“Strange treasure? What strange treasure?” Black Shadow asked in surprise.

“The strange treasure at the bottom of the river of course! Haven’t you noticed more people have arrived here recently? Aren’t they all here for the strange treasure at the bottom of the river?” Sima You Yue was even more surprised that he was. She thought of something and grabbed Black Shadow’s hand, “You don’t know what the strange treasure is? You are so familiar with the situation at the bottom of the river and yet you don’t know anything about it. Could the news about the strange treasure be fake?”

Black Shadow’s mouth twitched. He wondered how he would tell her the truth.

There was no strange treasure being born! Those movements were caused by someone in their family, there was no strange treasure at all!

When Huan saw his expression, he guessed what was going on. He stepped forward and said: “Young Miss, let’s resolve the matter of the Vapour Beast first. We can talk about the strange treasure later.”

“Alright, let me tell Mo Zhi.” Sima You Yue said.

While waiting for Black Shadow, Mo Zhi had been called away by Mo Zhan. Now that she was going to get ready to go down into the water, naturally, she had to inform him.

When Mo Zhi heard that she wanted to go down, he wanted to tell her that he would go with her. However, when he thought of what she said, he didn’t say it.

“If there is any danger, you must tell me!” He instructed.

“I will.” Sima You Yue replied casually. Even if she did encounter any danger, he wouldn’t make it in time.

They came to the riverside and watched the billowing river water. Huan and Black Shadow formed a protective barrier. As Sima You Yue was a Soul Body, she didn’t need to breathe, hence she didn’t require one.

After they had prepared everything, they jumped down together. The surface of the water splashed with low waves, then calmed down again.
