Chapter 79: Something happened to Little Roar
This was the first time that everyone had ever seen Bei Gong Tang smile. She always used to be as cold as ice but her smile this time was simply mesmerizing.
"Cough cough." Wei Zi Qi was the first to come back to his sense and he pretended to cough twice, saying, "Where is that Golden Snake Fruit? How long do we have before it ripens? With so many people and Spirit Beasts setting their sights on it, should we come up with some kind of countermeasures?"
When Wei Zi Qi said this, everyone creased their eyebrows. Just thinking about the Spirit Beasts was enough to give them a headache. Adding on to it the Spirit Beasts that would be attracted from all over the Mountain Range as well as the people who had their sights set on it, without a plan, it would definitely be very difficult to succeed.
"There are still seven days before this Golden Snake Fruit ripens. Let's look for the place first before testing out the situation secretly. We'll think of a countermeasure after that." Sima You Yue said.
"But where is that Golden Snake fruit? Which direction should we head towards?"
"I know the general direction. Head towards the inner region and that place will probably be very easy to find." Sima You Yue said.
"Since this is the case, let's go and find out what the current circumstances are." Ouyang Fei said.
"Wait." Sima You Yue called out to stop them. When she saw that they had turned around to look at her, she said, "The bodies from the Fire Wolves from our previous encounter have been with me. I'll give them out to you all. When that time comes, if we get forced to split up, you all should take it to complete the mission."
When she finished speaking, she took out all the Fire Wolf carcasses from her interspatial ring. She gave a few to each person and they kept them within their own interspatial rings. After that, they moved out.
Actually, Sima You Yue was also unsure of which way to go. However, with Mo Sha there to show the way, they just had to hurry along.
After three days, they came to the inner region that contained the Golden Snake Fruit. Following the tracks that those people had left behind, they came to a mountain peak.
That Golden Snake Fruit was in the middle of a steep cliff. It was about 100metres from the ground and people were crowding around all the other areas of the hillside. The valley had been occupied by countless numbers of Spirit Beasts.
Sima You Yue waited until they had reached an empty space and they looked at the forces all around, shocking them all.
"So many people and Spirit Beasts!" Wei Zi Qi lamented.
"We want to capture the Golden Snake from so many people and Spirit Beasts…" Ouyang Fei did not complete his sentence but everyone knew what he meant. That was something that was completely impossible.
"No matter what, I won't give up easily." Bei Gong Tang said as she clenched her fists.
"Is that the Golden Snake Fruit?" Fatty Qu pointed at the Golden Snake Fruit Tree in the centre of the overhanging cliff.
"With a high place like that, it wouldn't be easy for us to pluck off the Golden Snake Fruit even if there wasn't anybody else!" Wei Zi Qi said.
"Although that cliff is tall, it's not standing straight. There's a little bit of slope under it." Sima You Yue observed the area.
"But most people won't be able to climb up. At the very least, we can't." Fatty Qu said.
"Right now we can only see whether or not we will be able to take action during the chaos that will ensue when the Golden Snake Fruit ripens." Ouyang Fei said, "Bei Gong, if that's not possible, you…"
"I understand' Bei Gong Tang nodded. If they really were unable to come up with any plan, she would not force it. If she were to throw her life away because of it, it would really not be worth it. Furthermore, she still had many things that were waiting on her to do.
"I'm just afraid that it won't be easy to take advantage of the chaos!" Sima You Yue touched her chin and pondered, "Looks like we really have to come up with an strategy."
"You Yue, look, isn't that the General?" Fatty Qu suddenly pointed to a tent as he said.
Sima You Yue looked over and it really was that Sima Lie had brought along a few people from the General Residence to pitch camp on the slope opposite the Golden Snake Fruit.
"Why is Grandpa here?" When she saw Sima Lie, who had come out from the tent to observe the situation, she immediately hid behind Fatty Qu's body. She spoke to the others, "In any case, there are still four days before the Golden Snake Fruit matures so let's leave this place first."
"That's fine too. If we remain here, we might end up as the stepping stones of those powerful masters." Wei Zi Qi said.
Nobody knew why Sima You Yue did not want to go and look for Sima Lie, but they had no reason to stay in this area, so they nodded and left the area together.
The five of them left the others and stealthily went down the mountain. They came to a mountain peak beside it before finding a place to rest.
"You Yue, why did you want to run when you saw the General and the others?" Fatty Qu waited until they sat down before giving voice to the question in his heart.
"If Grandpa knew we were here, he would definitely call for men to bring us back immediately. At that time, how would we be able to fight for that Golden Snake Fruit." Sima You Yue said.
"We can carefully scout out the environment in the surrounding areas for the remaining period of three days." Wei Zi Qi said.
"That's fine as well. The attention of those Spirit Beasts will all be on that Golden Snake Fruit. The inner regions are relatively safer than usual." Bei Gong Tang said.
"Since this is the case, then let's…" Sima You Yue had yet to finish what she wanted to say before her expression suddenly changed, saying, "you all wait here for me, I'll leave for awhile."
"You Yue, where do you want to go? Although the inner region can be said to be relatively safer, it's still very dangerous for a person to head out alone." Fatty Qu said.
"Did something happen?" Wei Zi Qi asked.
"Little Roar just sent me a message. It appears that he has encountered some sort of trouble." Sima You Yue said anxiously.
Although Little Roar always said that it was a Divine Beast from the ancient times, it had zero battle strength right now. If it ended up in a conflict with another party, the outcome of the battle would be uncertain.
Furthermore, if it did not encounter any danger, it would not call her so anxiously. Thinking to this point, her heart burned with anxiousness and could not help but to head over immediately.
"We'll go with you!" Bei Gong Tang said.
Sima You Yue looked over at everyone and saw that they were determined not to let
her venture out alone and nodded, saying, "Ya Guang, bring us to look for Little Roar."
Just as everyone was puzzling over who Ya Guang was, a majestic, awe-inspiring, Iron Claw Tiger appeared in front of everyone.
"Master, quickly get on." Ya Guang said. It also felt that Little Roar was in danger and immediately transformed its torso the moment it appeared.
"It, it can talk. It's another Saint ranked Beast?" They looked at Ya Guang, then looked at Sima You Yue. Everyone was incomparably shocked as they never expected that, apart from Little Roar, she would actually have another Saint Ranked Beast!
However, this was not the time to be in shock. Everyone quickly settled their emotions and followed her to climb on Ya Guang's body. Ya Guang simply said, "Hold on tight", before speeding along.
He headed towards the direction from which he could feel Little Roar. After half an hour, they finally arrived at the place where Little Roar was, however, what they say was not the precursor to a Spirit Beast's Battle, but a small basket. Inside, Little Roar was lying on its stomach with a little bird, with a pair of eyes that appeared listless. It was pulling at his head and they could tell that something was wrong with one look.
Ever since Little Roar had awakened, Sima You Yue had never seen it look so listless. Looking at the way it was now really gave her heartache.
However, she was upset. Previously, she should not have followed what Little Roar had said and shouldn't have permitted it to wander around the mountain by itself. If not, it would not have been forced into this state by others.
It appeared that it could feel that Sima You Yue had arrived as Little Roar, who was lying inside the basket, had its eyes suddenly flash and walked over to where they were hiding.
Just as they were planning to go and rescue Little Roar, the two people who were sitting in the centre while drinking wine began to talk about Spirit Beasts that they had captured.
Sima You Yue never thought that their trip would actually result in them bumping into a huge plot!
