Chapter 93: Saint Beast Great Argus
“Fatty, Zi Qi, it looks like I’m going to need some time before I can pass you both your pills.” Sima You Yue said.
“No worries, we’re not in a rush.” Fatty Qu said
They were secretly thinking that they didn’t actually help out much for this so they should already be pleasantly surprised that they had already gotten something out if it. If they really were able to increase a rank by obtaining the fruit then waiting for a period of time was really nothing much.
“Oh right, You Yue, what was that thing that you called us to scatter on the Nalan Clan?” Bei Gong Tang asked.
“Enchanting Powder.” Sima You Yue said, “As long as that smell sticks on your body, you’ll never be able to wash it off no matter how hard you try.”
“What does it do?” Ouyang Fei asked.
“That… wait for the effects to take place then you will know.” Sima You Yue smirked evilly.
Since the Nalan Clan wanted to go out and find trouble with the Sima Clan, she would make it so that they wouldn’t be able to go out at all.
“Enough, You Yue is injured and can’t speak too much. Everyone is tired so we should all get some rest.” Ouyang Fei said.
Because Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang were sleeping on the bed, Ouyang Fei and the others could only look for a place to rest somewhere inside the cave. They didn’t bring a bed so they had to make do with chairs and whatever they brought along.
The cave soon became quiet because everyone was already worn out by everything that happened in the day and fell asleep quickly.
Sima You Yue looked at the side of Ouyang Fei’s face and her eyes flashed with suspicion.
Fourth Ranked pills were a rarity in Dong Chen Kingdom. He said he was an orphan so how did he obtain such a precious pill? Furthermore, no matter how you looked at it, she felt that he wasn’t an ordinary person.
Although her heart held many suspicions, she didn’t say anything. Just like how she held many secrets, who didn’t have things that they didn’t want others to know?
A night passed by quickly and Sima You Yue’s pill that healed her inner body quickly revealed its usefulness. Added on to her particular body constitution, when she woke up on the second day, she was already able get off the bed and walk around.
“Damn, You Yue, your healing abilities are too amazing, okay!” When they saw Sima You Yue like that, the few of them stared at her with gaping mouths.
“It’s the effect of Ouyang Fei’s medicine that is amazing.” Sima You Yue attributed all her healing to that pill.
“Bei Gong, how are you doing?” Ouyang Fei didn’t reply Sima You Yue’s underlying question and turned instead to ask Bei Gong Tang.
“Apart from some pain still remaining in my legs, I’m okay in other areas.” Bei Gong Tang smiled in reply.
Although the pill that Sima You Yue gave her was not ranked too highly, the wounds that she had received were not that serious so it was no big deal.
“Let’s rest for one more day today. We’ll carry on doing other things tomorrow.” Wei Zi Qi looked towards the people lying near the wall as he said.
The things that he was talking about doing was obviously to deal with them.
“The two of you rest first, I’ll go look for something to eat and return.” Ouyang Fei said.
“No need, I have them.” Sima You Yue said.
“Then I’ll go fetch some water.”
“I have that too.” Sima You Yue said.
“What about firewoo
Sima You Yue wanted to say that she had that as well but she didn’t want everyone to think that she was Doraemon, so she smiled and shook her head.
“Then we’ll go and look for some firewood.” Ouyang Fei said as he walked out.
“We’ll be nearby, if you need anything just shout loudly and we’ll rush back.”
After he finished speaking, Wei Zi Qi and Ouyang fei walked out as well.
“What’s up with them?” Sima You Yue saw the three of them rush out as she looked at Bei Gong Tang with confusion.
“Cough cough, it appears that there’s something that’s not too convenient for them to talk about.” Bei Gong Tang said.
“Something not too convenient to talk about? Then it’s convenient over there?” Sima You Yue nodded with understanding.
It was just having to answer the call of nature, how was this something so inconvenient to say? Sima You Yue looked down on the three of them in her heart.
However, she never thought about the fact that she used to have the identity of guy so they wouldn’t think too much about saying these kind of things in front of her. Now that they knew she was female, they started to feel awkward about it.
“Bei Gong, you’ve already obtained the Golden Snake Fruit so you should quickly give it to your contracted Beast to eat.” Sima You Yue said.
“Mm.” Bei Gong Tang nodded. With a single thought, a green bird appeared in the cave.
“This is… a Great Argus?” Sima You Yue looked at Meng Ji’s appearance and asked in surprise.
The Great Argus belonged to the Phoenix family and the teacher said before that the Yi Lin continent didn’t have any phoenixes. But Bei Gong Tang actually had a contract with a Great Argus… was she someone who was actually not from the mainland at all?!
Bei Gong Tang turned a blind eye towards Sima You Yue whose eyes were filled with surprise and then understanding. She knew that Sima You Yue would understand a few things after seeing Meng Ji, but she believed that Sima You Yue would never breathe a word of it.
“Meng Ji, Meng Ji.” Bei Gong Tang called a few times before Meng Ji slowly opened her eyes.
“Master.” Meng Ji’s voice was a bit weak and it appeared that her wounds were not shallow. She thought that Bei Gong Tang would not call her out without reason so her eyes shone, “Master, you called me out, don’t tell me it’s because…”
Bei Gong Tang smiled as she took out the Golden Snake Fruit and placed it beside Meng Ji’s beak, saying, “This Golden Snake Fruit was snatched by You Yue, we have to thank her.”
Meng Ji looked at Sima You Yue who was lying down on the bed and said gratefully, “Thank you.”
Sima You Yue waved her hands, saying, “Your family’sMaster has already pledged her life to me so you don’t have to thank me.”
When Meng Ji heard this, she looked to Bei Gong Tang with alarm, saying, “Master, how could you do this? If you have to use your entire life’s happiness to trade for this, Meng Ji will never take it!”
“Pfft-” When she saw Meng Ji’s reaction, Sima You Yue immediately burst out laughing.
“Meng Ji, You Yue was just teasing you.” Bei Gong Tang said, “She’s a woman, how could I follow her all my life. Alright, if we let this Golden Snake Fruit remain outside for too long, it will attract Spirit Beasts. Quickly eat it then go back to recover.”
“Master, she’s really a female?” Meng Ji was still looking at Sima You Yue with suspicion. How could she not even notice that Sima You Yue was a female? Even her scent didn’t reveal it.
“Enough, quickly eat it and return.” Sima You Yue said, “Not only is your body injured, the damage to your soul isn’t light. That’s why you haven’t recovered enough though it’s been such a long time. Aside from being able to increase your strength, the Golden Snake Fruit will also heal your soul. Aren’t you going to quickly go back and recuperate yet?”
Meng Ji was incomparably shocked. How did she know that her soul was wounded? This was something that even Bei Gong Tang didn’t know.
“Her soul was injured? No wonder her wound didn’t heal a single bit even though it had been such a long time.” Bei Gong Tang said.
“Since this is the case, I will return first.” Meng Ji saw the questioning look in Bei Gong Tang’s eyes and picked up the Golden Snake Fruit with her beak before heading back into the contracted space.
Seeing that Bei Gong Tang was quite anxious, Sima You Yue smiled, saying, “She doesn’t want to tell you because she doesn’t want you to worry. Anyway, she has the Golden Snake Fruit so I believe she will be alright in no time. You should stop worrying.”
“You Yue, how did you know that Meng Ji’s soul was injured?” Bei Gong Tang asked.
“Because I have discerning eyes!” Sima You Yue laughed and said. She would never say that Mo Sha was the one who had told her and could only skirt the topic by asking, “Oh right, how come those three guys still haven’t returned?”
She just finished speaking when she heard the sound of footsteps. It was obvious that the sound came from inside the mountain, however, it wasn’t three people, it was a bunch of people.
Bei Gong Tang could also hear that the footsteps were a little off and the two of them headed to the cave entrance cautiously, on full alert.
