Thinking about the force coming from the ground, she felt her heartbeat speeding up.
Intuition told her that the power… if she managed to obtain it, her strength would grow by an enormous amount!
However, this was not the time for her to touch it yet.
She wondered if Wu Lingyu would be able to go.
“It isn’t suited for me.” Wu Lingyu seemed to have been able to guess her thinking and said.
“You haven’t even seen it, how would you know how suitable it is?” Sima You Yue asked.
“Because I know!” Wu Lingyu said, “I could sense it before that the power is at odds with my spirit energy. Even if we found it, it would be a curse not a blessing.”
He wasn’t someone who coveted power blindly.
“Alright then. Then let’s not bother about this. Let’s take a look elsewhere.” Sima You Yue pulled on his hand.
They had already stayed down there for four months. In another month, it would be the date that Sima You Yue had fixed with Xuan Qiu He.
She wondered why he set the meeting date to six months later. Could it be that he had no plans to tarry here and find even more treasure?
This was a difficult place to enter, so she had to stay a little longer and bring out more things. Otherwise, it might be difficult to come back.
She told Wu Lingyu what she thought.
“The ancient texts say that you cannot stay for more than half a year in the ancient mine.” Wu LIngyu said.
“It’s rumored that if you stay in here too long, it will take control over your heart and mind and you will lose yourself.” Wu Lingyu explained, “As for the cause, the text did not explain.”
The Xuan Qiu clan had been researching the ancient mines so they were definitely aware of this point. In order not to lose oneself, you cannot stay in there for too long.
“It seems like there’s going to be a few more crazy people.” Sima You Yue sighed.
After half a year, if they were not as lucky as she was, many would not reap as much benefits as she did. Even if they knew that half a year was too short of a time, they would not be able to resist temptation and continue to stay here.
It wasn’t everyone who would be able to resist temptation.
Also, there were many others who were completely unaware of this fact and would unwittingly remain here.
Oh, if she met anyone she knew, she should probably let them know.
They continued to dig a burrow forwards. As they dug an exit, they continued to see if there were any other opportunities.
At the end, they really did dig out a few ores, but Little Golden didn’t have much of a reaction to it, so they guessed that the items in there were just average.
Using a few days worth of time, they made their way from underground to the surface. By this point, they had no idea how far they had gone from the entrance.
“Phew, it’s still much more comfortable on the surface.” Sima You Yue took a deep breath. Air on the surface was so fresh! “Everyone should be tired, let’s just rest here.”
To come up from underground wasn’t easy ethier!
“If not because Yue Yue insisted on digging your way out, wouldn’t using your Spirit Energy have been easier?” Little Roar said what everyone was thinking
“See it but don’t expose it, got it?” Sima You Yue glared at him.
“We want to eat good food.” Little Roar lay in Sima You Yue’s embrace, not afraid as she glared daggers.
“What do you want to eat?’
Eating meat? That was simple!
Sima You Yue prepared a pile of meat for everyone. She had roasted meat, barbecued meat, deep fried meat, stir fried meat, meat stew and all the like.
Her beasts had contributed much this time, and she had reaped so much benefits. She did not mind preparing food for them.
Sima You Yue caught Little Roar who was about to steal the meat and place him in front of a pot of soup. She beamed, saying, “This is yours.”
Little Roar looked at the tiny pot and looked at her aggrievedly, “What is this? It doesn’t have a single piece of meat!”
“It’s pigeon soup, very nutritious. It will be useful for your little body.” Sima You Yue grabbed onto his neck and refused to let him escape.
“No way! They’re all eating big chunks of meat, but mine is so small. I want to be with them.” Little Roar protested.
“You’re only suited for eating this.” Sima You Yue didn’t care about his protests, “You said earlier than you were very small and ‘couldn’t do manual labour’. Since you’re so small, eating this should be enough for you.”
Little Roar’s eyes were round and huge as he stared at Sima You Yue in anguish.
She did this on purpose! She made use of the point in his life where he didn’t want to live and refused to give him good food to eat. Sob sob, she was too cruel!
“Good boy, this is delicious!” Sima You Yue patted his head.
Under her stare, Little Roar could only go and eat the meat after settling this. It was so tiny that he could eat it in a bite!
“Eh… it really tastes quite delicious!” When Little Roar swallowed it, he could tell that the taste was really not bad.
As such, he very shamelessly drank the entire portion of pigeon soup. Then, he didn’t care about Sima You Yue’s teasing glance as he ran over to snatch for meat with Little Seven and the others.
It was the first time that An Lei had eaten such delicious meat. Adding on to that the fact that she had become familiar with everyone, she joined the fray to battle for the meat as well.
Sima You Yue held a plate in her hands and came beside Wu Lingyu, saying, “I wonder if Si Yue will chase after me and beat me up when she sees me.”
Wu Lingyu laughed, saying, “That’s possible.”
Si Yue enjoyed joining the fun but she was tossed away and unable to enter the desert. Once she saw her, based on her character, she would probably chase after her to beat her up.
“Weren’t you the one who caused it!” Sima You Yue rolled her eyes at him.
He was the mastermind, but he actually laughed so… happily?
“We don’t know how others fared in terms of profits.” She took out a roasted meat and took a bite, “I’ll go ask my bees to check out the situation.”
Wu Lingyu ate his food quietly as Sima You Yue wandered around absentmindedly, enquiring about the situation outside.
If he spoke to her now, she definitely wouldn’t hear him.
Suddenly, she stood up and stopped eating her roast meat, “I have news of Master Feng.”
“Feng Zhi Xing?”
“Yes. There’s a group of people arguing and many people are watching. Master is there too.” Sima You yue said, “I have to go and take a look.”
“If there’s a dispute at this time, I’m afraid that it might have to do with the mine. To be able to attract the attention of so many means it’s probably a treasure.” Wu Lingyu said, “Who knows, it might end up in a fight. We should go and take a look.”
“Mm.” Sima You Yue nodded. To her beasts who were currently gorging themselves, she said, “Let’s continue eating on the way back. We have to rush.”
Her beasts very quickly polished everything off and carried the meat as they went on their way. Sima You Yue was worried for the safety of Ximen Feng and the others. It was a good thing that her scarlet bees had sent back news saying that they were fine for now. Only then did she relax.
Halcyon took everyone and flew in the sky towards the direction that her scarlet bees had told her about. When they were in the sky, the heard sounds of spirit skills clashing.
Two people were fighting in the sky as the group of people watched from below. Sima You Yue could recognise Feng Zhi Xing at a glance.
Although they had only known each other for a short time, the impression that he had left on her was deep.
Feng Zhi Xing was initially thinking of something when he suddenly felt something. He lifted his head and saw Sima You Yue flying over. The cold expression on his face turned into a warm smile.
