Chapter 47: “An Amazing Array Master”
The Spirit Masters Guild comprised of numerous Spirit Masters and they were in charge of managing the affairs of the all the Spirit Masters on the continent. The Spirit Masters were bound by the rules of the guild, however in return, they also gain protection from the guild.
Similarly, all the other professions also have their own guilds. Alchemists had their Alchemists Guild, Weaponsmith Masters would have their Weaponsmith Masters Guild and Beast Tamer Masters had their Beast Tamer Masters Guild and even the mercenaries had their Mercenaries Guild.
All these guilds worked together and did not work in isolation.
Each guild would be in charge of the different resources and every city's teleportation array would be located at the Spirit Masters Guild.
When Sima You Yue walked into the Spirit Masters Guild, the person inside saw her tattered clothing and immediately felt a deep sense of veneration.
"Is there anything that I can help you with?" The girl at the counter bowed down slightly as she asked.
"I wish to use the teleportation array to return to the capital city." Sima You Yue said as she looked around the guild.
It could be because the area was relatively small so this Spirit Masters Guild and was decorated simply. The counter was old and worn, leaving only one girl inside who had bent her head down to work. It was only when she had seen her walk in that she raised her head to inquire what help she needed.
That girl smiled lightly and said, "Sorry, we don't have a teleportation array that sends you directly to the capital."
"You don't?" Sima You Yue was puzzled. Didn't Wu Lingyu tell her that they had one?
"We used to have one, but it was damaged recently and we haven't had an Array Master to fix it yet." That girl said with a slight flush of embarrassment, "However, we have one that will send you to a city near the capital and from there, you can transfer and use their teleportation array to head on to the capital. Don't worry, this way would not spend too much time or gold coins."
"Okay then, send me to that place first." Sima You Yue said.
"Please fill up this form first, and pay 5 gold coins." The girl handed a piece of paper to her.
Sima You Yue looked at that piece of paper and saw that it was just some fundamental information, with a brush of the hand, it would be done. After that, she took out 5 gold coins from her interspatial ring and placed it on the counter.
The girl put the gold coins into the drawer, and took the piece of paper without even looking at it, as she said, "Please follow me."
Sima You Yue followed her into a hall behind the Spirit Masters Guild and saw the mark of the array in the middle. The wall contained various city names.
"Please stand on the array." She gestured over to the array in the middle.
Sima You Yue stood on it and saw the girl walk over the right side of the wall and press the name of a city.
"This is Chariot City, which is on the right of the capital city. Going to the capital from there should be convenient." The girl explained to Sima You Yue.
Sima You Yue nodded. At this time, the array suddenly gave off a flash of light, similar to the time when she had seen the array in the cave. The inscriptions and runes were filled with light and she disappeared within the array.
The girl saw that all was normal with the array and then lowered her head to look at the form in her hands. She saw the name filled in the box and was shocked.
"Sima You Yue? That waste?"
She raised her head to look towards the array, however, Sima You Yue was already gone.
"There's no way it would have been that waste." The girl shook her head as she said, "That waste cannot cultivate at all, and the person just now had an interspatial ring. He was definitely a Spirit Master. It must be a person who has the same name."
The girl shook her head as she left the hall.
Sima You Yue felt her body being squeezed by the immense pressure and she couldn't help but closed her eyes tightly while she was being teleported. After an unknown period of time, only when she felt the pressure release could she open her eyes. This time, she had already appeared in another place.
"Hmm? This came from the Pu Luo Mountain Range? How come there's only one person? Hey, quickly wake up, don't hog the teleportation array, there are people from other places that will be sent here."
Sima You Yue heard an astonished voice and crawled up from the teleportation array, mustering her energy as she groggily stood aside.
It hadn't been half a minute since she left when the teleportation array flashed with light again. After the flash of light, three people appeared in the hall.
Those three people glanced at the surroundings wordlessly and immediately left.
After they had left, the teleportation array lit up yet again, this time, only two people appeared. In a similar fashion, they glaced at the surroundings and left.
Sima You Yue saw that the others were standing, and it appeared as if she was the only one who was lying down when she arrived at this place.
"Hey, what are you still doing here? Aren't you leaving yet?" A youth in his teens berated her when he saw that she was just staring blankly at the teleportation array.
"I want to use the teleportation array to go to th capital." Sima You Yue said.
"You want to go to the capital?" The youth looked at Sima You Yue twice before saying, "When you go out, turn left into the courtyard. Go there."
Sima You Yue had no idea why he had told her to go to that place but she still followed his instructions obediently and went there.
She currently had the pressing desire to return home. She couldn't be bothered with those people who had bad attitudes.
After she stepped out of the teleportation hall, she saw a large garden outside. It was a picturesque sight as she saw the beautiful landscape filled with a huge variety of rare and exotic flowers, a complete contrast from the Pu Luo Mountain Range's simple Spirit Masters Guild.
She saw a stalk of Foxtail Grass, a plant she had came across a few times in her past world. She went forward and broke off a portion, and placed it in her mouth, following the youth's instructions to head to the courtyard at the side. To her surprise, there was an extremely long queue.
"So many people!" Sima You Yue gasped as she grudgingly went over and stood right at the back of the line, slowly shuffling along with the group of people.
She had initially thought that this place was just for her to fill out the form, but she quickly realised that the the people who went in never came out. She could see that there were occasional flashes with white rays of light.
"It turns out that the teleportation array for entering and leaving is not the same in this place." She touched her chin and muttered, "This teleportation array looks quite fun. In the future, I should go and learn it. If I was able to create my own teleportation array, that it would be so convenient."
When the man in front of her heard what she said, he started to laugh out loud.
The fellow behind her pat her shoulders, saying, "Little brother, being an Array Master is not something that you can become just by thinking about it!"
"Is it very difficult to become an Array Master?"
"Of course, not everyone can become an Array Master, it's as difficult as becoming a Alchemist or a Weaponsmth Master! Actually, it might even be a little harder because there might be an Alchemist out of a thousand Spirit Masters, but it's uncertain as to whether or not there will be an Array Master." That fellow said.
"Really, then isn't become an Array Master really amazing?" Sima You Yue's eyes shone, if the person that she was familiar with in her past life knew this, she would definitely be exceedingly interested.
"Haha, in any case, it's very difficult. Little Brother, if you're that ambitious, then try your best at it! If you manage to succeed, at that time you will be able to get anything your heart desires!" That fellow didn't have any intentions of making fun of Sima You Yue, only encouraging her as he pat her back.
"Hehe, thank you elder brother!" Sima You Yue smiled as she said.
"Not a problem. Try your best, Little brother!" The fellow encouraged, "Oh right, where do you want to go?"
"The capital." Sima You Yue replied.
"This place is not far from there, it's such a waste of gold coins to use a teleportation array to get there. Do you know anyone from the capital?" That man asked.
His random chatter gave Sima You Yue a scare. If she used a teleportation array to go back, she would be sent directly to the Spirit Masters Guild in the capital. The people here may not recognize her, but the people over there would definitely recognize her! Wouldn't the fact that she had become a Spirit Master become exposed?!
"Ah, I just remembered that I have something to do. I'll head off first! Goodbye elder brother." After thinking it through, she left the queue and exited the Spirit Masters Guild.
As she walked down the street, she grabbed a man to ask him the way to the capital. That man not only told her how, but also told her that she could take a Beast Carriage to head there for only 15 gold coins.
As such, Sima You Yue went to look for a place that rented Beast Carriage and rented one, letting the other party send her to the capital.
It was a journey that did not even take a day. It was clear that this city was really very close to the capital. As the clouds started to turn pink and a beautiful orange glow covered the skies, she had finally reached her destination. It was almost night but she had made it back on time.
Outside the city, she paid the reward and let the other party return. She looked at the majestic city wall and smiled lightly.
Grandfather, brothers and those who had schemed to hurt me, I, Sima You Yue, have returned!
