Chapter 220: Bumping into Sima You Yang again
After staying in the inn for a night, they switched to another inn that was near the Sima Clan. In the room that they choose, they could keep an eye on the Sima Clan’s residence.
Sima You Yue’s room was on the fourth floor. She was currently standing in front of the window and taking in everything that belonged to the Sima Clan.
The past General’s residence in the Dong Chen Kingdom and the current Sima Residence could not be compared to the size of this house.
The high courtyard stretched long and far. She could not see the end of the city fall from where she was, showing that it stretched out really far. It was no wonder that Bei Gong Tang and the others would describe this as a small city.
Furthermore, the width of it could not be compared with any ordinary residences. Just by estimation alone, it was several thousand metres. It expanded out till it reached the mountain, and even the area behind the mountain range could be considered part of their family land.
It was said that the experts of the Sima Clan did not usually live below, but stayed on the mountain to cultivate. They wouldn’t usually come out if there wasn’t anything going on.
“I wonder where Grandpa and the others are.” Sima You Yue gazed at the huge residence and muttered.
Bei Gong Tang saw Sima You Yue gaze at the Sima Clan and stepped forward to comfort her, “You can relax, your Grandfather will definitely be fine.”
For the next two months, Sima You Yue and the others would randomly go out and take a walk, but at other times, would remain in their own houses to cultivate.
Spirit Pagoda naturally receiving Spiritual Qi, along with the advantage of a usual days worth of time equalling to three over there, she increased rank once again, rising to a third ranked Spirit Overlord.
Often, she used quite a bit of time and energy to split up amongst pill refinement, soul refinement and practicing arrays. Otherwise, she would be even more powerful right now!
After she had increased in rank, she felt that her inner strength had advanced by quite a bit, and she did not cultivate so fastidiously in vain.
“I’ve been in seclusion for so long, it’s time for me to go out and take a look.” Sima You Yue got down from the bed, opened the door and went outside.
“Not bad, advanced in rank again.” Wei Zi Qi and the others were waiting for her outside the room door, serving as her guards to avoid anyone from disturbing her.
“Evildoer!” Fatty Qu said.
“Didn’t the few of you increase in rank as well?” Sima You Yue glanced at the few of them. Everyone had similarly increased in rank these few days. “How long have I been in seclusion?”
“Over a month. There’s only ten more days till the end of your three year deadline.” Wei Zi Qi replied.
“Ten days…” Sima You Yue mummered.
Never thought that they’d already spent two months in Anyang city. Cultivation truly was no respecter of time!
“That’s right, when we went out that day, we saw that lady again.” Fatty Qu said.
“Sima You Qing?”
“Nope, it was Sima You Lan.” Bei Gong Tang said, “Three years ago, when we were in school, we saw her. Then, two days ago when we went out, we saw her beast cart outside the Sima Clan’s main gate with the guards calling her Miss
Miss You Lan.”
Sima You Yue had some impression of this girl who was around the same age as her. Crossing the Sofia Mountain Range was a dangerous thing to do. At that time, aside from Sima Kai who was a Spirit Overlord, she was just a spirit king. The other three were Spirit Saints. That they were willing to bring her along was definitely not to let her kidnap someone or just to gain in some experience and knowledge.
Thinking about how Sima Lin listened to her as well, only giving up on the Golden Snake fruit when she said that she could not feel for its position, she wondered if she could feel for talents and treasures?
“Since Sima You Yue has come out from seclusion, let’s go look for a restaurant to celebrate.” Fatty Qu suggested.
“We can do it.” Wei Zi Qi said, “We’ve all successively advanced in rank recently. It’s truly a reason to celebrate.”
“The Intoxicated Moon Winehouse nearby has dishes that aren’t bad, let’s go there to eat! Fatty Qu had tried out the food of all the restaurants nearby, so he naturally knew which ones were tastier.
“Okay, get Halcyon up and then we can go together.” Sima You Yue said.
“Halcyon left two days ago, saying that he would be leaving for a few days. He said he would definitely be back in ten days.” Wei Zi Qi said.
Sima You Yue was stunned as she never expected Halcyon would leave. She wondered what he needed to go do.
“Then we can go on our own.” She said.
“Today is the day that Sima You Yue has advanced in rank, we definitely have to let her wallet bleed a little tonight.” Fatty Qu’s spirits were really high.
“No problem, I’ll treat you
treat you all to a big feast today!” Sima You Yue smiled and said.
“Yay, Big brother is going to treat us to a feast today!” Little Tu cried out in excitement.
They left the inn after that and decided to walk slowly towards the restaurant since it was still early, window shopping while they were at it.
When they walked past a little street, they realised that quite a bit of people had gone inside.
“This street is rather lively.” Sima You Yue said.
“Of course it is, this branch on the street is from the Xuan Yuan Pavilion.” Fatty Qu said.
“Ugly Person’s Xuan Yuan Pavilion?”
“Right. The nameplates are the same.” Fatty Qu said, “It’s still early now so they haven’t opened. We can go in and take a look after we’ve eaten.”
“Okay. We can see what differences there are between this one and the one at Peace City.”
When it was afternoon, they came to the Intoxicated Moon restaurant. Although these group of cultivators had no demands, the Intoxicated Moon restaurant was packed full.
“Why are there so many people?” Sima You Yue looked at the fully packed restaurant and asked.
“Because the things here are delicious!”
Fatty Qu spoke as he walked inside and a waiter came forward.
“Waiter, do you still have rooms?”
“Oh my, pardon me. Our rooms are all fully booked this afternoon.” The waiter said apologetically.
“No more private rooms?”
“That’s right. Our rooms have all been reserved. Our large hall only has one or two more tables left.” The waiter pointed at two tables at the side while speaking.
“The last two times we came were both at night. Never thought that there would be so many people in the afternoon. If we knew early, we would have walked quicker on the road.” Fatty Qu said.
“If it’s Qu said.
“If it’s the main hall, then just take the main hall.” Sima You Yue said, “Since we’ve come, we can just put up with it. In any case, it’s still a meal.”
“Guests, this way please” The waiter gestured with his hands.
“Since there’s no private room, why don’t you eat with us?” Sima You Yang’s voice came in from outside.
Sima You Yue and the others looked behind and saw Sima You Yang, Sima You Qing and four to five other people walking in together.
“Big Brother You Yang, Big Sister You Qing.” Little Tu smiled and greeted them when he saw Sima You Yang.
“You all came to eat as well?” Sima You Yue saw the way Little Tu was acting. It looked like he had gotten really close to the two of them.
Looks like they’d already met quite a few times in the time in-between.
“That’s right. We’ve brought a few friends with us and invited them here to eat.” Sima You Yang said, “We didn’t see little bro Ximen the previous two times. They said you were in seclusion.”
“Mm, I just came out today.” Sima You Yue said.
“Since you don’t have a private room, why don’t you eat with us. Brother Zi Yan wouldn’t mind, right?” Sima You Yang said.
Huo Zi Yan held a fan in his hand as he said, “Since they are your friends, there’s naturally no problem.”
Sima You Yue had no wish to walk too closely with those from the Sima Clan right now and wanted to wiggle out of it but Fatty Qu had already answered on her behalf.
“Then we have to thank You Yang greatly.”
Sima You Yue’s eyebrows lifted. When had their relationship gotten so close that they were on a first-name basis?
