Chapter 257: Something happened to Ouyang Fei
“Then, take this!” Sima Lin attacked Sima You Yue with a wave of mental power once he finished speaking.
Sima You Yue immediately concentrated her mind to receive the attack. She dared not look down on a great array master’s mental power.
Their mental strength was rather similar now. When their attacks met in the air, it was as if it had substance to it.
Sima Lin did not use that much strength in the beginning because he did not need to beat her until she couldn’t move, like he had to do three years ago. However, he also realised that Sima You Yue’s mental powers were many times stronger than it was three years ago. She was actually able to easily take his attacks.
One had to know that the mental strength he was releasing was the same level as the one that he had used three years ago to beat her down.
Sima Lin doubled his strength for his second attack. However, Sima You Yue still received the attack easily.
For Sima Lin’s third attack, not only did Sima You Yue receive the attack, she even in fiercely attacked back, sending his mental strength right back at him.
“Grandfather Lin, how is it?” Sima You Yue asked while beaming at him.
Three years ago, when they met, she had merely practiced the soul arts for a short time before being able to receive his attacks. Now that three years had passed, with her consistent practice of the soul arts every day, her mental strength was already beyond words.
Sima Lin nodded and flew down from the mountain peak, “I never expected that your mental strength would actually become so powerful. I heard that you are also an array master?”
Sima You Yue knew that Sima Lin was definitely the one who had told him. However, she didn’t refute it, she merely nodded her head in agreement.
She had always wanted to get him to give her some pointers about arrays. Now that he had come to ask, she might as well take the opportunity to ask him to teach her.
“To what degree are you able to sense space?” Sima Lin asked.
“I can already control space that is half the size of a body.” Sima You Yue replied.
Sima Lin was in complete shock. He was so young but he was actually able to control space!
“Good, good!” Although the clan was able to produce two array master, their talents did not come close to yours.” Sima Lin said excitedly. “I will tell you all that I know. In the future, your accomplishments will definitely supersede mine!”
“Thank you Grandfather Lin!” Sima You Yue cupped her hands and bent low at the waist.
“Ha ha, let’s go. We will go to the pavilion on the mountain top.”
Sima You Yue happily followed Sima Lin.
Sima You Yue passed the next few days simply and peacefully. Whenever she had time, she would discuss some problems she faced with arrays with Sima Lin.
Sima Lin really liked her and taught her everything he knew, enabling her to improve in her array mastery by leaps and bounds.
Aside from teaching her arrays, he even came to battle with her from time to time, where she never stopped improving amidst the battles.
Scarlet Queen Bee had already birthed many scarlet bees, who were making honey inside the spirit pagoda. Every month, she would give the old fox a bottle of scarlet honey. That old fox would distribute that scarlet honey to the disciples in their clan in order to help them grow stronger.
Aside from Sima You Lin, nobody else who received the scarlet honey knew where it came from.
Of course, as time went on, the more scarlet bes the Scarlet Queen Bee produced, the more honey was produced. Sima You Yue kept away that honey and also increased the amount that she gave to the Sima Clan. She left the rest for future use.
Wei Zi Qi and the others were cultivating inside the Spirit Pagoda for over a year. It was unknown when they would increase in rank, so Sima You Yue would run over to the back mountain every few days, to a secluded place that nobody was at, to take them out to increase in rank.
For this one year, everyone had increased in rank to a Spirit Overlord. Bei Gong Tang already increased in rank to become a first ranked Spirit Saint.
There was still three months to the meeting when Sima You Yue got a piece of news and quickly called everyone out.
“What’s up, You Yue?” Fatty Qu came out and asked.
This was the first time she had interrupted their cultivation, so something big must have happened.
Sima You Yue looked at Ouyang Fei, saying, “News has come from the South Eclipse kingdom. The South Eclipse King and the others know that you are still alive and have left the Dong Chen Kingdom, so they released news saying that they will kill your mother and her clan in half a month.”
Ouyang Fei immediately flew into a range, slapping a stone table into dust, yelling, “Ouyang Dong dares?!”
“He has just ascended to the throne and knows that Ouyang is still alive. He will definitely find a way to exterminate you.” Bei Gong Tang said.
“That’s right, when your father was still around, he dared not touch your mother and her clansmen. He could only act in secret. Now that he has ascended to the throne, it is natural that he would want to exterminate this hidden danger.” Wei Zi Qi analysed.
“If those old men from the court knew that you were still alive, I’m sure they would overthrow him to let you become king. Ouyang Dong is afraid that something like this will happen.” Fatty Qu had also matured a lot in these two years.
Sima You Yue looked at him and asked, “What do you plan to do?”
Ouyang Fei clenched his hands into fists, saying, “What else can I do. He knows that my clansmen are my weakness. He knows that I will definitely return if I get a hold of this news. I’m afraid that he would have already laid many traps for me when I return. However, even if this were the case, I still have to go back!”
Sima You Yue patted him on the shoulder, saying, “What are you afraid of, we aren’t weak either. After we go to South Eclipse Kingdom, we’ll turn his life upside down!”
“RIght, we’ll go and usurp his throne and take revenge for what happened a few years ago.” Wei Zi Qi said.
“You guys…” Ouyang Fei wanted to say that they didn’t have to go, but his words died in his throat. He understood them, he knew he wouldn’t listen to himself either.
“Since time is tight, I will go and let Grandfather and the others know before we head off.” Sima You Yue said.
“Before we head to the South Eclipse Kingdom, Ouyang, stay here. Don’t reveal yourself.” Wei Zi Qi said.
“That’s right. The South Eclipse King will definitely guess that you will come. Who knows what kind of traps he’s already laid along the way. We can’t afford any delays on the way there.” Sima You Yue said.
“Okay. Then, I’ll trouble you, You Yue.” Ouyang Fei nodded as he said.
“Look at what you’re saying!” Sima You Yue glared at him, saying, “I’ll take Grandfather and the others out.”
She came to another house and told Sima Lie and the others about it and brought them out.
“Fifth Bro, why don’t you let us go with you.” Sima You Le said.
Within this year, they had increased quite a few ranks inside the Spirit Pagoda. It was natural for them to want to go once they heard that she was going to head to the South Eclipse Kingdom.
“You all should stay safe at home. When the time comes, go and participate in the meeting together. You are carry the name of the Sima Clan, you can’t expose yourself.” Sima You Yue said, “When the time comes, I will meet up with you guys again at the meeting.”
“You… okay. Then you must take care.” Sima You Ran said.
“I will.” Sima You Yue nodded, “I’m going to let the Clan Leader know that I’m going.”
As she spoke, she took out a jar of Scarlet Honey and handed it to Sima You Ming, saying, “This is for the next three months.”
Sima You Ming naturally knew this was Scarlet Honey since he had been drinking it for a year. He took it and said, “You have to take here. Take Halcyon with you.”
“I will be careful.” Sima You Yue replied. Then, she sighed, “Halcyon, that guy, has been caring for his young wife recently. I don’t know whether or not he has the time to go with us.”
