Chapter 844: Being looked down on
It was a fallacious and preposterous argument, but they still had to spend their crystals to buy a few pills from her .
Although they watched as they lost a few thousand crystals, Mo Bin and He Feng didn’t feel much about it . One of them was loaded, while the other didn’t care much about money . Tan Yan was the only one who was reluctant to part with it .
When he saw that Sima You Yue was just giving out the pills to the others, he asked, “Why don’t they have to pay?”
“We’re a group . Of course they don’t’ have to . ”
“We’re in the group with you as well . ” Tang Yan argued .
“Not close to you . ” Sima You Yue didn’t feel like replying to him .
“Our first meeting was as acquaintances, but our second was as friends . We’ve seen each other so many times, so we’ve been close long ago . ” Tang Yan refuted .
“They’re my brothers, and Fatty and the others are my companions who have grown up with me . We’ve been living together for ten to twenty years . ” Sima You Yue said, “If we were the same, I would not take your money either . ”
Tang Yan wanted to tell her that ten years was not a long time, but thinking about how young she was, ten years was really a relatively long time for her .
Sima You Yue did not wait for him to finish speaking as she turned around to pat the golden sand off her . “Alright, I’m going to refine more pills . Bei Gong, Ouyang, you guys can rest for a moment before coming . ”
“Alright, you can go ahead . ” Bei Gong Tang nodded .
Because there were outsiders present, they did not go to the spirit pagoda to cultivate, but refined a few more furnaces full of pills . Each batch produced ten pills, and the three of them refined over a hundred pills that night .
As they were refining, two waves of golden scorpions came on the oasis . They were cleared away by everyone without bothering the three who were refining .
“More than a hundred golden scorpions came within a single night . The frequency is rather large!” Mo Bin said, “There were times back then that we could go an entire day without encountering one, and less than twenty or thirty at a time . ”
“It’s no wonder that they said the golden scorpions had exploded in number!” Tang Yan said, “They aren’t that strong, but there are so many of them . If a huge bunch appear, it will be hard to battle them!”
“We don’t know how this ended up happening either . ” Sima You Lin said .
“We encountered so many in a single night, so I bet that the other students won’t encounter any less . I wonder how things are on their end?” Mo Bin was a little worried .
“If you’re worried about them, you can go and look for them . ” Fatty Qu said .
Go, if he goes, he will no longer stick to them .
“We’re sticking with you . ” He Feng was resolute . He didn’t care how others were doing . If he were to care, he would only care about it after his battle with Sima You Yue .
“Once Fourth Brother wakes up, we can look for other people . ” Sima You Yue pulled the tent and came out .
“Yue Yue, are we really going to go?” Little Seven said .
“We should . Principal Yuan and Teacher Ge are people who care a lot for the students . If they found out that something had happened to the students, they would definitely be anxious . ” Sima You Yue said .
Teacher Ge and the others had gone to such a dangerous place in order to find a way to cure the problem with her body . Little Seven was also very close to the other teachers in the sect . They treated her very well, so now that she was aware of this, she could not just stand by and do nothing .
If they didn’t know about it then it was fine, but now that she knew, and also had a way to combat it, if she didn’t do anything, she would be letting them down .
“That’s true . ” Little Seven said, “Then we’ll go once Fourth Brother wakes up . ”
Sima You Yue first called out a few thousand scarlet bees, getting them to fly around and scout for information .
After reproducing for so many years, Scarlet had produced a few average queen bees in the spirit pagoda . Their numbers were growing steadily .
When Mo Bin and the others saw the scarlet bees flying away, they were so surprised that they couldn’t close their mouths for a long time .
When night came, Sima You Le woke up . When he heard about his dangerous condition from them, he was terrified .
“It’s late now, let’s head off tomorrow morning . ” Sima You Yue said .
The bees that had been sent out did not report that anything too dangerous was happening, so there was no need to rush out . They could still refine a few more pills .
On the morning of the second day, they kept their tents away and Sima You Yue called out Halcyon to fly them off in a random direction .
On the road, they stopped to collect any golden scorpions they passed by . They killed a few hundreds in a day .
“There’s an oasis up ahead, let’s pitch our tents there tonight . ” Sima You Yue said .
Halcyon took them to the oasis . For convenience’s sake, everyone was too lazy to set up their tents . They set up a fire, then sat around it and meditated .
“Someone’s coming . ” Sima You Yue said as she opened her eyes .
“Probably a student from the sect?” Fatty Qu asked .
“Mm, there are quite a few of them too . ” Sima You Yue said .
Very quickly, a group of people came flying over on their spirit beasts . There were a few tens of them, and the leader of which was Wang Si Miao and the others .
When they saw Sima You Yue and the others, those students immediately recognised Mo Bin and Tang Yan .
“It’s Mo Bin and Tang Yan! That’s great! The top ten of the billboard have all gathered together . We’ll be even stronger now!”
“There’s also Crazy He!”
“You’re right! We’re all gathered now . ”
Hua Piao Mian didn’t think that the ones at the oasis would be Sima You Yue at the others . Seeing that some of them were laughing and bantering, her expression fell .
“Mo Bin, are you guys alright?” Pang Jia Nan was a little concerned as he asked . It was just that the look in his eyes was a little fake .
“Yeah . ” Mo Bin replied casually .
“The Karma Desert is a little abnormal . Those golden scorpions are a lot more powerful than the ones we encountered years ago . Coming along with these freshmen, you weren’t dragged down were you?” Hua Piao Miao asked as she walked over .
“That’s right . We wanted to let you come with our group, but you insisted on going with these freshmen . Now, these golden scorpions can kill many in a few moments . Bringing those freshmen along with you…” Pang Jia Nan agreed, but he was interrupted halfway .
“Pang Jia Nan, you’re wrong . We’re perfectly fine, so why do you guys keep saying that You Yue and the others are dragging us down?” Tang Yan didn’t like them, so he replied poisonously .
Sima You Yue and the others were annoyed by Hua Piao Miao and Pang Jian Nan’s two person act, and were pacified greatly by what Tang Yan said .
“That’s right, Pang Jian Nan, you can’t just randomly say this and that about the freshmen . They’re powerful!” He Feng said .
“How is that possible?” A female shouted, “Even if they have a few alchemists and spirit tool masters, for these kinds of practical combat, they’ll drag you down . Right, Senior Wang?”
Wang Si Miao didn’t nod, but he didn’t deny it either .
From their perspective, freshmen would only drag them down . For a qualifying round as dangerous as this, they should stay in the sect grounds obediently, not come here and make trouble for others .
“That’s right . Earlier on, there were two freshmen who had been surrounded by golden scorpions . The others obviously could have escaped, but it was precisely because of them that a few freshmen died . ” Someone added on . It was obviously dripping with dissatisfaction towards the freshmen .
As for those freshmen that were inside the group, they were hanging their heads down guiltily .
