Chapter 704: Difficult birth
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
Third Aunt Du blew the whistle three times . Everyone waited for two minutes, but nothing happened .
“Master, does the whistle do anything?” Little Wu asked .
“It should . ” Third Aunty Du said tentatively, “At that time, I already made arrangements with them . If something happened, this would be our signal . I tried it twice after that, and it worked both times . ”
“But you’ve already been blowing it for such a long time, but nothing’s happened . Could it be that it’s no longer here?” Bei Gong Tang said .
“I can’t say for sure . I’ve been on good terms with them for over tens of years . I hope that nothing has happened to them . Let me try again . ” Third Aunt Du said worriedly .
After speaking, she blew it again .
“Something’s happening . ” Sima You Yue looked towards the peaceful lake as she spoke .
Just as she spoke, a little head peaked out from the lake, looking at them warily before noticing Third Aunty Du and dashing out of the water .
“Third Aunt is here!” The little body came out from the water, and it was actually a round little silkworm egg . The spirit silkworm immediately rushed over .
“Fatty, what are you doing in the water? What about the others?” Aunty Du asked as she held on to him .
“Third Aunt, Third Aunt . ”
“Third Aunt, we’re here!”
“Third Aunt is here!”
Little spirit silkworms started to appear from out of the water, and the lake was immediately filled with a horde of spirit silkworms .
“So many spirit silkworms!”
Everyone was incredibly surprised when they saw how many silkworms there were .
“Little Xin, Little White, why did you all go inside the water?” Third Aunt asked .
“Third Aunt, there have been many people in the forest, and many of our neighbors have either been caught or killed . The Queen told us to enter the lake and lay low to hide . It was a good thing that we hid in time . A lot of people came after that and it scared us to death . ” Little Fatty said while spinning two circles around Third Aunt’s hand .
“Where is your Queen?” Sima You Yue asked .
“Queen is still in the water . She is expecting another young one, so she is currently giving birth . ” Little Fatty said, “Queen said that the spirit baby she is nurturing will be very powerful once it is born!”
“These silkworms can be born underwater?” Fatty Qu was confused as he asked Sima You Yue .
“Where is this place?” Sima You Yue glanced at him .
“Umm . . Dark Forest?”
“Where is the dark forest?”
“Ancient Primordial lands . ”
“In the Ancient Primordial Lands, is there anything strange about a spirit silkworm that lives in the water, being born underwater? Is there any reason to make a fuss about it?”
“That’s true . ” Fatty Qu rubbed his head, “Even ringed silkworms can survive in poisonous lands, so there should be nothing strange about spirit silkworms surviving in the water . ”
“Oh no! Oh no!” A tiny human-like figure came out from the water, shouting loudly .
“Did something happen?”
“Queen- the Queen can’t give birth! She’s growing weaker and can’t hold on much longer!” The little humanoid cried out anxiously .
“What!” The silkworms in the water and the humans on land all cried out . The spirit silkworms all immediately wanted to dash downwards, but were stopped by a force .
“Queen cannot handle so many visiting her at one . ” A tiny bearded humanoid, one foot tall, came out from the water . He was the one who stopped everyone .
“Grandfather Sun, how are things now?”
“Extremely bad . ” The white bearded old man waved his sleeve as the spirit silkworms flew out from the water and landed anxiously on the ground .
“Old Sun, Ruo Li, she…” Third Aunt Du was extremely worried, “Can I take a look at how she’s doing?”
“Queen cannot be moved from the water, and you cannot enter for long either . You would be helpless even if you did . ” Old Sun said something before turning around to instruct the other spirit silkworms, “Hurry up and enter the forest . Look for something that can either increase her spirit energy or extend her life . Hurry!”
Sima You Yue saw how anxious Aunt Du was and said, “Third Aunt, I am an alchemist, and I can also stay underwater for long periods of time . I can go down and take a look . ”Read the next chapter on our vipnovel . com
Old Sun and the other spirit silkworms looked over as Third Aunt Du grabbed Sima You Yue’s hand, saying, “That’s right, you’re an alchemist . You might have an idea . Old Sun, let him take a look at Su Li . ”
“This guy?” Old Sun looked suspiciously at Sima You Yue .
“He’s my nephew . If you let him take a look, he might be able to save Su Li . ” Third Aunt Du said, “Old Sun, you don’t have any other ideas, right?”
“I want to go as well . ” Little Seven grabbed onto Sima You Yue’s hand, emphasizing the fact that she was there as well .
Old Sun thought about it for a moment before nodding, “Follow me . ”
Old Sun returned to the water and Sima You Yue took Little Seven with her and followed him in . One of them ate the Waterproof Bead, while the other was some form of unknown creature . In any case, the water didn’t have much impact on them .
Sima You Yue followed Old Sun down into the water for a long time . She initially thought that it was a small lake in the forest, but the area below was like a completely different world . It was so strange .
Old Su took them to the bottom of the lake and landed on a ledge . A huge spirit silkwalk law on it, and its abdomen was huge . Because it was a difficult birth, her entire being was weak and was merely floating on the lake .
“Old Sun . Did you get something good?” A one foot tall female asked .
“Not yet . This lady, Third Aunt’s nephew, said that he’s an alchemist and came to see the queen . ” Old Sun said .
The moment they heard that it was Third Aunt’s nephew, everyone did not have much misgivings and stepped aside to create a path to let Sima You Yue near Su Li to take a look .
Sima You Yue swam over and stretched forth a hand to touch the bulging belly . It seemed that Su Li could feel something, as her eyes peeke open for a moment .
“Queen, I’m going to examine you . ” Sima You Yue inserted a bit of spirit energy into her belly and that spirit energy circled around her belly before circling around the rest of her body .
“How is it? Do you have any idea?” Old Sun asked anxiously .
“Based on your spirit silkworm’s cycle, the queen should not yet be due to give birth, right? Why is she giving birth prematurely?” Sima You Yue asked .
“She was injured by a human, so it became a premature birth . ” A tiny person beside Su Li replied .
“Do you have any way to save her or not?”
“I do have a way, but I’m afraid that it might be hard for you to accept . ” Sima You Yue siad .
“What is it?” Old Sun asked .
“A contract . ”
“A contract?” When they heard what Sima You Yue said, everyone cried out with shock .
“No way, not ever . ”
All the spirit silkworms cried out in objection before they heard her explanation .
She was their Queen! How could she be contracted by a human and become their contracted beast?
Sima You Yue wasn’t urgent either, as she took out a pill and fed it to Su Li when she saw that her life force was pouring out of her . It was only then that she turned around to tell Old Sun and the others, “You have less than a day to think about it . ”
“That’s right . ” Sima You Yue siad, “Her life force is pouring out of her ceaselessly . It’s not just because of her birth, but more so because of that . ”
She pointed at the bulge, her words enigmatic .
