Sima You Yue helped Old Bi perform acupuncture before asking, “Old Bi, have you ever wondered why your poison can be suppressed inside Blood Fiend City?”
Bi Sheng put his clothes on and said, “I have . But I’ve never found the reason why . ”
“Have you ever gone to check it out?” Sima You Yue asked .
“I’ve checked it out . In the past hundred years, I’ve walked everywhere in Blood Fiend City, thinking of finding out the reason why . Especially since my body has been feeling differently recently . I wanted to find out what caused the change . However, even though I’ve gone to check it out so many times, I’ve never found out anything . ” Bi Sheng said, “Why? What did you discover?”
“It was rather weird when we went to the City Lord’s residence today . ” Sima You Yue siad, “To be exact, I’ve had a nagging feeling ever since I’ve entered Blood Fiend City . ”
“Oh? You found something strange as well?’
“When we entered the city, we could only use crystal stones . Nobody in the city is able to cultivate . They can only do so with the aid of the crystal stone, so isn’t this strange in itself?” Sima You Yue siad, “The Blood Arena is strange as well . It seems to give everyone a sense of happiness, but nobody knows what goes on behind the scenes . The stage is another enigma . After seeing blood, they definitely go crazy . This is something that doesn’t sense . ”
Bi Sheng didn’t think that after Sima You Yue had entered the city for less than two or three days, she would have found so many issues with it already .
Sima You Yue took out the tea leaves that Li Hong had given to her and handed it over to Bi Sheng .
“Take a look at this . ”
Bi Sheng opened the bag and looked at the tea leaves inside . He took a few of them out and sniffed them, saying, “Are these leaves from the Blood Demon Tree?”
“You know about the Blood Demon Tree as well?” Sima You yue asked, “Then, have you ever drunk the tea from the leaves?”
Bi Sheng shook his head, saying, “There are only a few of these tea leaves every year . It is always the City Lord who drinks it . I have never seen him gift them to someone else before . I didn’t expect him to gift them to you . What’s wrong with these tea leaves?”
“You’ll know once you test it . ”
Sima You Yue used some of the leaves to brew a cup of tea . She handed it to Bi Sheng, who drank it . Then, he attentively examined its taste, saying, “There doesn’t seem to be anything off about it?”
‘Don’t you feel like, after drinking it, there’s a bit of the taste of blood in it?” Sima You Yue asked .
Bi Sheng took another mouthful, paying more attention to its taste . After a short moment passed, he said, “That’s right . There is a faint smell of blood . This tea was brewed from the Blood Demon Tree . Why would there be the taste of blood?”
“What do you think?”
“Unless it’s constantly been steeped in blood, this wouldn’t happen . ” Bi Sheng said .
“Whether or not it has been, I’m thinking that a tree that carries the smell of blood isn’t’ something that great . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Then, why would the City Lord give you something like this? Does he not know?” Bi Sheng was puzzled .
“No, I’m guessing that he does know . Furthermore, it seems like he kept hinting to me to get me to notice that tree . ” Sima You Yue said, “But I just can’t understand it . It’s a tree . Why did he keep hinting to me about it non-stop? Do you know anything about that tree?”
“The Blood Demon Tree?” Bi Sheng thought for a moment, saying, “Now that you mention it, nobody has really noticed that tree . If you didn’t mention it, I would never have thought of that tree . Thinking about it closely now, however, that tree has always been there . Nobody knows when it started growing . It’s been a long time, but nobody has really paid any attention to it . It could be because it has always been in the City Lord’s residence, so no one had much access to it . ”
“Why would it be a tree, though?” Sima You Yue looked at her finger thoughtfully, unable to understand . “Old Bi, there’s also the matter of the red moon . Do you know why?”
“I have a feeling that there is a correlation between the red moon and the suppression of my poison . ” Bi sheng said .
“Everytime the red moon appears, the poison in me will become rather chaotic, as if something frightful has happened . ” Bi sheng said, “I will faint after a period of time, buf if the time I am supposed to faint happens to be the time the red moon appears, I will not faint on that day . ”
“Red Moon… Poison…” Sima You Yue was trying to think of a link between them, but she couldn’t pinpoint it .
Such a headache .
“Old Bi, tell me about what you’ve discovered . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Alright . ”
“Wait, Little Seven . Go and see if Shi Chen and the others are done with their things . If they are, call them over so we can discuss it together . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Alright . ” Little seven hopped off her seat, opened the door and ran out . She quickly came back with Shi Chen and Feng Kai .
“Boss, what’s going on?” Feng Kai asked .
“There are some things I want to discuss with you guys . ” Sima You Yue told them about what she was puzzling over before adding, “Old Bi is going to tell us about what he’s found out all these years . Old Bi, you may begin . ”
“Mm . ” Bi Sheng nodded, saying, “I’ve examined the blood arena before, wanting to find out why the people in the blood arena go crazy the moment they see blood . I once infiltrated the blood arena for an entire day just to see what was so fishy about that area . In the end, I found something else instead . ”
Bi Sheng’s expression was dark . It seemed that whatever he had discovered was something that upset him a lot .
“What?” Little Seven said .
“The stage is alive . ” Bi Sheng said .
“Alive? What does that mean?”
“You guys have realised it . No matter how much blood leaks onto the stage, it’s clean by the next morning . ” Bi Sheng said .
“Indeed, that is the case . ”
“I always thought that the ones from the Blood Arena would clean it on the second day . However, when I infiltrated the place, not a single person was there . Also, guess what I saw?” Bi Sheng built the atmosphere .
“Can’t guess . ” Everyone shook their heads .
The blood arena seemed simple, but it was filled with secrets . Nobody was able to guess what he saw that day .
“I saw the stage start to absorb flesh . ” Bi Sheng said, “That stage not only contained the flesh left behind from the night before . The entire stage was filled with flesh . ”
“Filled with flesh?” Everyone was shocked .
“That’s right . Furthermore, it was all human flesh . ” Bi Sheng said, “It was like a mouth opened up on the stage and devoured the flesh until not a single bit remained . By the time it was calm, the stage had already regained its original clean appearance . ”
“The stage ate the flesh? That’s too strange!” Feng Kai’s jaw dropped as he cried out with surprise .
“Also, it happened more than once . ” Bi Sheng said, “Shortly after that, I went again, and it was the same . The stage was filled with flesh . ”
“The condition of the blood arena is that the ones who go on stage have to spill blood . ” Sima You Yue siad, “Could it be that the stage has truly been made out of a spirit beast?”
“Made out of a spirit beast?” Everyone was stunned by her guess . That was too impossible!
However, it seemed as if Sima You Yue had guessed something . The stage of the blood arena might not be something as simple as being a transformed spirit beast .
It was possible that it contained an even bigger secret!
