“Seems like Blood Fiend city is controlled by the Blood Demon Tree . ” Little Seven commented .
“This isn’t right!” Hu Yang called out, “Even the last time when it was crimson moon, there wasn’t an issue like this, everyone still can go out of the city!”
“So to put it clear, this time it’s different . ” Shi Chen said, “From what Li Zhi said, about evolving tonight and that we can’t escape, I guess, it will have a big change tonight and it wouldn’t be as mild as the past years with little fights and arguments . ”
“Should be, if not it wouldn’t trap everyone in the city . ” Wang Mo commented .
“It traps everyone here and intends to wipe out everyone?” Little Seven guessed .
“Could it be?” Hu Yang didn’t believe, “There are so many people in the city, it’s not like everyone is weak, if everyone resists together, even if it’s a demon tree, it won’t get any benefits . ”
“It’s not impossible . ” Shi Chen refuted, “For the past many years, crimson moon appeared so many times, with the amount of people in the city, nobody found out about it too . ”
“Also, Blood Demon Tree’s root covered the whole area under the city and it seemed like it’s strength is different from others . ” Bi Sheng continued, “It can kill so many people quietly, it’s not something that could be done casually . ”
Sima You Yue frowned, it seemed like she thought of something in her mind, but it flashed through so he couldn’t catch it at all .
“Yue Yue, what are you thinking?” Little Seven saw him being silent and asked .
“I have a feeling that we seem to have missed out on something . ” Sima You Yue explained, “I almost caught the point, but alas… I can’t think of what it is . ”
Everyone looked at her and didn’t know what she was talking about .
“Brother Shi Chen, would that demon tree start a massacre tonight?” Little Seven asked Shi Chen when she saw that she couldn’t remember anything, so she didn’t want to pester her .
“I feel that the possibility is high . ” Shi Chen said .
“So are we still going to Blood Arena? We haven’t got to recruit a lot of people!” Little Seven said while slanting her lips, “I didn’t expect that the wrestling ring was metamorphosed by that demon tree, to think that we used to fight in that ring, now that I think of it, it’s disgusting . But that scent was mystical, it can actually hallucinate us . ”
Sima You Yue’s eyes brightened and shouted, “I finally remember the leads we missed, Little Seven, you are awesome!”
After finishing her sentence, she even kissed Little Seven on her cheek .
“What did I say?” Little Seven blinked her eyes, obviously she hadn’t come to a realisation .
Others were puzzled as well .
“Boss, what did you remember?” Feng Kai asked .
“Scent, hallucinate . ” Sima You Yue explained, “You guys never thought of any other things?”
“Other things?” Mu Lian Xin gave a hard thought about it but still didn’t understand what he meant .
“You are saying, crimson moon was hallucinated by others too?” Shi Chen said .
“Able to make everyone in the city have the same hallucination?” Hu Yang widened his eyes in shock .
“Maybe, maybe not . ” Sima You Yue continued, “Before I have any contact with it, I can’t confirm . But we can make a wild guess . ”
“That smell came from the roots, now we know that its roots have extended in the underground of the whole city, meaning that it can release the same smell at other places, or release other poisonous gas . ”
“If it wants to control so many people, this method would be useful . ” Shi Chen said .
“So, I need to check all of your health . ” Sima You Yue said .
“Yue Yue, are you suspecting that they got poisoned?” Little Seven asked .
Sima You Yue nodded .
“But didn’t you check on Old Bi? If they have anything, wouldn’t you see it before?” Feng Kai asked .
“Old Bi’s body already has poison, so I can’t check on other stuff . ” Sima You Yue explained, “Now I will check all of your health . ”
“Okay . ”
Sima You Yue checked on Hu Yang, Wang Mo and Mu Lian Xin .
“What’s the result?” Shi Chen asked when he saw Sima You Yue didn’t say anything .
“Their bodies have a similar smell on them . ” Sima You Yue answered, “You can say that their bodies have the same poison . ”
“Because of that smell, they all can’t cultivate . ” Sima You Yue continued and took a glance at Wang Mo and the rest, “And this smell will trigger them mentally, making them hallucinate and something even… worse can happen . ”
“Yue Yue, can you research an antidote for this?”
“The most I could do is to suppress it temporarily . ” Sima You Yue continued, “I haven’t really researched anything from the devil realm . It will be easier to look for Senior Brother regarding this . ”
“It’s already afternoon, tonight will be crimson moon night, if the poison in their body causes trouble tonight, I’m afraid something worse will happen . ” Bi Sheng said .
“Not only them, your body has it too . ” Sima You Yue refuted, “The smell could be the one that was suppressing the poison in your body . ”
Bi Sheng shrugged his shoulders and said, “Okay, our bodies . ”
“I have to research the antidote, then take a look at the City Lord’s house to know exactly what this crimson moon night is about!” Sima You Yue went back to the house right after finishing his sentence .
“I will help . ” Little Seven left with him .
“Get those people to come over, I think, something big will happen tonight and he will definitely need helpers!” Bi Sheng commanded .
“I will go . ” Hu Yang said, “Lian Xin, you follow me . ”
“Okay . ”
Hu Yang and Mu Lian Xin left together, preparing to contact those who followed Sima You Yue .
Sima You Yue came to the room and fixed up a spirit barrier, he went in the spirit pagoda with Little Seven .
From Li Hong’s hint and Li Zhi’s words yesterday, he felt that something would happen tonight, he had to refine the antidote to suppress Blood Demon Tree’s poison before night falls .
In the evening, he and Little Seven walked out from the house and Bi Sheng’s inn was already filled with people .
Sima You Yue went down and distributed the antidote to everyone and said, “I believe they already told all of you about the situation, this is the antidote to suppress the poison . ”
Everyone ate the pills and asked, “Is this pill useful for tonight if it only suppresses the poison in our body?”
“At least you guys won’t get controlled by the poison . ” Sima You Yue explained .
“If we were being controlled, what would they do to us?”
“Losing sanity and obeying whatever the Blood Demon Tree said . ” Sima You Yue explained, seeing everyone widened their eyes in shock, “Of course, it’s just my guess . But, it might be real . ”
“If it’s true, then tonight… . ”
Everyone didn’t dare to imagine what would happen .
They had rather believed that the crimson moon night was an inexplicable phenomenon than to believe that it was just a cover for killing people . But with evidence in front of them, they couldn’t help but believe .
“The night is coming, you guys wait here, we will take a look at the City Lord’s Residence . ” Sima You Yue told Little Seven and the rest .
