Chapter 211: Night attack
Yao Guang did not like that City Lord either. He did not have a single talent and was only able to become the lord of the second largest city because of Qin Mo.
She flourished her arm gracefully at Sima You Yue and the others, saying, “Guests, this way please.”
West Moon Emperor had arranged an extremely secluded courtyard for Sima You Yue and the others. It was called the Water Pavillion and was the most beautiful of all the pavilions.
Furthermore, it was quite near to the royal palace. It could even be counted as part of the palace. It was merely an area surrounding the palace, so the guards here were not that powerful.
“This place is really not bad.” Fatty Qu looked at the beautiful and secluded surroundings and never thought that the emperor would actually have a place like this.
“It’s really not bad!” Even Ouyang Fei sang its praises.
Yao Guang stole a glance at Halcyon, saying, “The Emperor said that you distinguished guests have always lived in the mountains and may not like noise, so he has specially arranged this place for you.”
“Mister Halcyon, we’re truly benefitting from your presence!” Sima You Yue laughed as she teased Halcyon, not afraid of inciting his anger at all.
Halcyon looked at her cooly without speaking.
“Lady Yao Guang, when will we be able to meet the emperor?” Wei Zi Qi asked.
“The Emperor said that it is up to you guests. You may visit him whenever you want.” Yao Guang replied with a smile.
“It’s already late today, why don’t we go tomorrow. Halcyon, what do you think?” Sima You Yue said.
“Up to you.” Halcyon threw out these three words and fell back into silence.
“Acting cool!” Sima You Yue muttered in her heart before turning to Yao Guang, saying, “Then, we’ll trouble lady Yao Guang to relay this to the Emperor on our behalf.”
“Distinguished Guests are too courteous.” Yao Guang said, “This lady will definitely relay this to the emperor today.”
It could be considered that she could see that, although Halcyon was not a spirit beast they contracted, he listened to Sima You Yue. As a result, although Sima You Yue’s strength did not appear to be too strong, he was the one she definitely could not afford to offend.
Yao Guang assisted in their living arrangements and only left when she had assigned them a palace maid.
Sima You Yue and the others were cultivating in their own houses. Even Little Tu had tried to simulate cultivation.
Bei Gong Tang was afraid that others would disturb him, so she went to cultivate with him. If anything were to happen, she would be able to protect him.
Although the West Moon Emperor appeared to treat them with courtesy, who knew what the real situation was like?
The next afternoon, those who were cultivating slowly left their states of cultivation and went outside.
“I really feel a bit restless!” Sima You Yue laughed coldly and really opened the door and went out.
Six Spirit Paragons had just arrived in the air above the house when they saw that Sima You Yue and the others had opened their doors and came out. They were not surprised at all at their arrival.
“Six Spirit Paragons?” Sima You Yue raised her eyebrows at the few of them, saying, “This disposition of forces is really large!”
“You must be Sima You Yue?” A Spirit Paragon looked at her and asked.
Sima You Yue leaned on the door and was not flustered at all. She smiled in reply, “You have all already come all the way here, do you still need to ask anything?”
The ridicule in her voice enraged the Spirit Paragons.
“Looks like it must be the few of you!” The Spirit Paragon who had spoken earlier spoke again, “Do you all want to kill yourselves or do you want us to send you on your way?”
Aside from Halcyon, they could feel that these people were really not that powerful. They had no idea why Imperial Mo had wanted so many Spirit Paragons to act together.
Furthermore, these few people had just come out of seclusion, naturally had no time to hear of the gossip outside. They had no idea that two of their Spirit Paragon Brothers had already died at the hands of Halcyon.
If they knew, even if they had to give up the provisions that Imperial Mo had given them every year, there was no way they would participate in the battle tonight.
“I’m guessing that you must be sent by Qin Mo? That Imperial Concubine really has set her sights on us!” Wei Zi Qi said.
If it was West Moon Emperor, he could have acted the moment they entered the Imperial Capital and would have needed to wait until now to send these people.
Furthermore, he would not have dispatched so few people. They would not even be enough to fill up the gap in Halcyon’s teeth!
It was evident that it was the clueless Imperial Concubine who had come to pluck out a whisker from a tiger!
However, they could use this to have a good talk with the West Moon Emperor.
With this thought in mind, Sima You Yue did not let Halcyon act immediately. She asked him not to act for the time being.
“Big Brother, you should just do it yourself. Why did Qin Mo send people to ask us to come for the sake of these mole crickets and ants. It’s really making a mountain out of a molehill!” A Spirit Paragon said unsatisfactorily.
“That’s right. We might as well go back and cultivate instead of talking to these little children. I’ve begun to feel the rays of rank advancement recently.” Another Spirit Paragon said.
Sima You Yue had to hold back a smile as she addressed the people in the sky, “Did that Imperial Mo of yours tell you all that the Spirit Paragons Liu and Hu have died?”
“What did you say?” Hearing this piece of news so suddenly, a few Spirit Paragons subconsciously thought that Sima You Yue was cooking up nonsense in order to stall for time.
“Also, has she not told you that the Domineering Army has already been exterminated? Those two Spirit Paragons were killed during that time!” Sima You Yue added on.
“Who dared to kill our brothers!”
“If you all are lying, we will definitely annihilate you!”
The few of them unleashed their spirit auras, but the few of them standing at the houses were unfazed.
Sima You Yue walked forward, saying, “How could we be lying! Because the one who killed them is standing right here!”
Sima You Yue pointed at Halcyon, saying, “Your Imperial Mo definitely did not tell you one thing. He is a Sacred Beast in disguise!”
The Spirit Paragons got a huge shock when they heard this. It was no wonder that they could not estimate his strength.
“So I’m saying that your Imperial Mo totally doesn’t care about your lives at all, since she’s sending you all to your deaths right now!” Sima You Yue shook her head as she spoke, as if she were feeling sorry for them.
Halcyon supported her by releasing his Sacred Beast aura.
“How can there be a sacred beast!”
“Could such a thing really have happened when we were in seclusion?”
“If there really is a Sacred Beast, what are we still doing here? Run!”
All who had reached their level had a common problem. They were arrogant and also had another unique characteristic. They really cherished their lives.
The few of them exchanged glances and immediately escaped backwards. However, it was as if they ran into a barrier and could not run out at all.
“Since you’ve come, you should stay and chit chat!”
As Sima You Yue spoke, she called out Thousand Resonance, as well as Little Roc and Ya Guang. Wei Zi Qi and the others called out their own Divine Beasts.
“They’re all Divine Beasts!” The Spirit Paragons saw the Spirit Beasts who were standing in the house and felt their hairs stand on end. In the centre, stood a Sacred Beast!
“Thousand Resonance, you all can play with them!” Sima You Yue said.
Aside from Thousand Resonance whose strength was about the same as a Spirit Paragon, Ya Guang, Little Roc and the others were quite a bit weaker and were not the match of these Spirit Paragons. As a result, she asked Halcyon to lend each of them a bit of strength, draining him of his own strength a bit. After that, she let the Spirit Paragons spar with Little Roc and the others.
The events here got out very quickly. Those Spirit Paragons had no desire to fight them at all, however, the situation now was that it was not up to them anymore! Surrender would cost their lives, but not surrendering would also cost their lives!
The West Moon Emperor who was just preparing to head to bed was stunned by the abrupt battle, asking, “Where is the clamour taking place?”
“Emperor, there’s someone who went to sneak a night attack on that Sacred Beast!”
The reply almost caused the West Moon Emperor to fall off the bed. He was treating him with favor like he would to a deity, so who dared to sneak a night attack on them?!
