Chapter 179: Coming to an agreement
For the entire 3 days, Sima You Yue was enveloped in that fire. They thought that she was unconscious, but she remained conscious the entire time. While she was conscious, she felt the fire reform every single part of her bones.
The previous time that she was in the Pu Luo Mountain Range cave, Crimson Flame had used his fire to reform her meridians. This time, he was using his fire to reform her bones. The bones that were reformed were as solid as refined spiritual Qi.
If she had once again encountered the same situation that happened three days ago, her bones would not be broken so easily.
Three days later, Crimson Flame finished reforming her and slowly retrieved his own flame.
“You should first put on some clothes.” Crimson Flame said from within the contractual space.
Sima You Yue was completely well by now. Seeing her naked body, she took a new set of clothes and wore it.
In the beginning, she could not control the flame. That was why her clothes had all been burnt off. Right now, the things in her hand were completely unscathed.
After wearing her clothes properly, Sima You Yue gave a thought and the flames engulfing her were extinguished.
Bei Gong Tang and the others quickly ran over when they saw that the flames on Sima You Yue’s body had disappeared.
Sima You Yue thought of how they had been wounded by the Sacred Beast and asked, “How are you guys?”
“We’re all better now. What about you?”
Sima You Yue moved her body and smiled, “All better.”
“Oh damn, You Yue , what kind of flame is your flame that it’s so mystical?!” What kind of spirit beast is that egg?” Bai Yun Qi looked at Sima You Yue in shock.
Sima You Yue shook her head and said quite helplessly, “I don’t know what kind of spirit beast he is either. He never told me before.”
Everyone was left speechless by what she said. She didn’t even know what kind of spirit beast she had. It was really only something she could do.
At this time Crimson Flame came out from Sima You Yue’s body and flew in front of the four eyed bird, who had remained creeping on the ground the entire time.
“You know your sin?” Crimson Flame’s voice carried with it an inherent imposing tone, not withholding his anger.
“I know my sin.” The four-eyed bird answered softly with his head on the ground.
“Little Roar offended you and you wanted his life. You hurt my owner, so take your own life.” Crimson Flame said faintly.
Wei Zi Qi and the others all opened their mouths in shock. It sounded like he was going to kill him?
The eyes of the four-eyed bird flashed with unwillingness. However, he did not dare to go against the orders given by this spirit beast. They did not know of his identity, but he did.
He raised his head and called out loudly and was going to take his own life.
“Wait a moment!” Sima You Yue spoke out and quickly flashed in front of the four-eyed bird, halting his actions.
“What’s up?” Crimson Flame asked.
“That… the four-eyed bird is not a cruel beast. He didn’t indiscriminately kill humans, and also ascended to the level of Sacred Beast only after much difficulty. It would be too much of a waste to just let him die here.” Sima You Yue said.
“But he hurt you!” Crimson Flame said angrily, “If I did not sense that you were in danger and awoke from my deep sleep, you would be dead right now!”
“Isn’t that because Little Roar went to agitate him. It wasn’t his fault at the beginning.” Sima You Yue spoke on behalf of the Four-eyed bird.
“Then how do you plan to settle it?” If Crimson Flame was a person, everyone would realise that the expression on his face had become extremely ugly.
“Just let him go.” Sima You Yue said.
It was not like she wanted to take revenge. It was just the the things that happened were not his fault at the beginning. Furthermore, thinking of how he did not indiscriminately kill those at Three Springs City, she felt that to kill the Sacred Beast like this was too much.
Especially after seeing the lightning he endured that night. She truly respected him in her heart.
Someone who dared to live in the world of battle would always win the respect of others.
The four-eyed bird never thought that Sima You Yue would speak out on his behalf. He knew that if she was willing to let him go, he would be able to keep his life this day.
Crimson Flame thought about it for a moment, saying, “ It’s not like I can’t let him go. Your power now is too weak and currently need someone to protect you. Four-eyed bird, can you take her as your owner?”
Asking a Sacred Beast to recognise an owner?
The spirit beasts in the spirit pagoda all burned with anger. There was already a Crimson Flame, pressuring them above. If a Sacred Beast came in, wouldn’t their position be pushed further and further behind?
“Oh Yue Yue, that guy wanted to kill you just now. You can’t agree to this!” Little Roar cried out.
“However, if there is a Sacred Beast, Master’s power would increase by quite a bit.” Thousand Resonance was more logical and forward looking.
“In any case, we’re just the hanging tail.” Ya Guang, who had just increased rank to divine beast, lay on the ground. However, his tone revealed that he was a little upset.
For a spirit beast, his increase in rank was considered really quick. Using Sima You Yue as a master to level, as well as having other spirit beasts she contracted with, he slowly increased rank from saint ranked beast to a divine beast.
Sima You Yue looked at the Four-eyed bird solemnly, saying, “You don’t have to follow me. My current mental ability does not allow me to contract another Spirit Beast. Furthermore, you’re a Sacred Beast. I neither have the ability to tame you nor form a contract with you.”
“Then let him take the initiative to accept you as his owner.” Crimson Flame said.
Sima You Yue shook her head, saying, “Having to take initiative to accept me as his master would be too much of a waste. If we use my method to form the contract, it would benefit both man and beast. It would be so much easier to increase in rank later on.”
“You really…” Crimson Flame was really speechless towards Sima You Yue’s ways of reasoning.
Sima You Yue stepped forward to pat the Four-eyed bird’s beak and took out a bottle of pills, saying, “These are pills I refined. Little Roar and the others eat these when they are injured. I don’t know whether or not these will be useful for you because you’re a Sacred Beast, so you should eat a few more pills.”
After she finished speaking, she took poured all the pills in the bottle and threw it into its beak.
The pills dissolved in his mouth and the four-eyed bird looked blankly at Sima You Yue.
Sima You smiled, saying, “You can go.”
The four-eyed bird looked towards Crimson Flame. He would not dare to leave without his consent.
Crimson Flame thought about it for a moment, saying, “Follow her during the period that she is in the Yi Lin Continent. Once she leaves this continent, if she has not contracted you, you would have regained your freedom. If she gets injured while she is in the Yi Lin Continent, just wait. I’ll turn you into roasted bird.”
After he finished speaking, he turned into a golden ray of light and entered in between Sima You Yue’s eyebrows and returned to the contracted space.
Seeing that Crimson Flame was being such a *****, Sima You Yue touched her nose.
“If you’re unwilling, you don’t have to bother with Crimson Flame.”
The Four-eyed bird looked at Sima You Yue. After a moment had passed, he finally said, “I am willing to follow you.”
He meant that he would follow her for the time being. He was not saying that he would definitely recognise her as his master. If she was not good enough for him, he would definitely not choose her.
Without Crimson Flame’s pressure, the Four-eyed bird assumed his human appearance again.
Just like that, Sima You Yue gained another Sacred Beast as a companion. This change caused the others to filled with hatred and envy!
“Right, what is your name?” Sima You Yue asked. She was not used to calling the people beside her using subordinate terms.
“Name?” The Four-eyed bird was stunned for a moment. It had been a long time since someone had called him by his name. “Just call me Halcyon¹.”
¹Misty: His name in chinese is 重明. I’m giving him this name as this is also a mythical bird which represents calm and tranquility which suits him for his sense of justice.
