Chapter 35: “There’s someone by the riverside!”
Feng Zhi Xing heard what the old principal had said, and he pondered for a bit, saying, “The relationship between him and myself is merely because someone has entrusted me with the task of taking care of him.”
“Who asked you to take care of him?” The old principal asked.
“Principal, you also know of the things that are happening in that world. I know that you and General Sima have a very good relationship, anyway, I will not harm him. Furthermore, there is the Sima family to consider.” Feng Zhi Xing said, “Also there are the rules that constrain me, I would be unable to randomly interfere.”
“I am not worried about what you would do,” The old principal sighed, saying, “I am just worried for you. If anything should happen to that child……”
“Nothing will happen.” Feng Zhi Xing assured, “That man’s child will not lose his life so easily.”
Feng Zhi Xeng said it with such assurance, but he did not know that Sima You Yue had actually already run into a bad situation, and her body was currently inhabited by a different soul.
“Sigh, you are a teacher, you cannot continue to keep watch here indefinitely.” The old principal said.
“When it’s time for classes to begin, I will head to my class.” Feng Zhi Xing said, “Oh right, Principal, do you know where this teleportation array leads to?”
“Don’t know. The people who come out always say that they don’t know where they’ve been. The only information I have is that it appears as if everyone who goes in will go to a different place.” The old principal said. “But as for a specific location, it remains unclear.”
“In this case……” Feng Zhi Xing was a little frustrated.
“You should just go back, if he returns from some other place, you wouldn’t be able to see from here, anyway.” The old principal said, “In a while, I also have to head to the General’s Residence to relate this piece of information to General Sima.”
“I’ll go with you.” Feng Zhi Xing suddenly thought of something as he said to the principal.
The principal nodded his head, and the two of them headed to the General’s Residence.
Sima Lie listened to the fact that there was no news about Sima You Yue in shock. He wanted to go look for her immediately, however, it was completely unknown where the teleportation array had sent her. Even if he wanted to look for her, there was no way.
“General Sima, you should have Sima You You’s life jade, right?” Feng Zhi Xing asked.
“Sima You Yue heard Feng Zhi Xing’s words and his face immediately darkened. He asked, “How did you know?”
“Don’t care about where I got this piece of information from, for now. You should first check whether or not her life jade is in good condition.” Feng Zhi Xing said anxiously.
Sima Lie saw the worry on Feng Zhi Xing’s face and stopped harping on this question. With a single thought, a plain black jade box appeared in his hand.
He opened the black jade box and inside it rested a white jade. The white jade had two flushing red circles, as if it were human blood.
“This piece is You Yue’s life jade. It is in good condition, it means that she is still alive.” Sima Lie said, as he looked at the piece of white jade.
Listening to Sima Lie’s words, Feng Zhi Xing’s anxious heart gradually calmed down.
“It’s really because her life jade has no sign of activity that I could not detect her being in any form of danger.” Sima Lie put the jade back in its rightful place, and put the black jade box back into the interspatial ring. He looked at Feng Zhi Xing and said, “You can tell me now. How did you know about You Yue’s life jade?”
Feng Zhi Xing replied, “Of course I would know. Because I was the one who helped her mother make it.”
“So you are……” Sima Lie looked at Feng Zhi Xing in shock.
“That’s right.” Feng Zhi Xing said, “Don’t tell You Yue about this.”
“Of course I understand this.” Sima Lie said.
“Since this is finished, I will return to the school first.” The old principal said.
“Okay. In case there is any sign of activity from that child, I ask for you to let me know.” Sima Lie said.
After waiting for the old principal and Feng Zhi Xing to leave, Sima You Qi and the rest went to Sima Lie’s house and said, “Grandpa, Fifth brother, he’s is not in any danger right?”
“Right now we only know that his life is not in any danger.” Sima Lie said, “But we have no idea what his current circumstances are. We are unable to discern this information from the life jade.”
“I’ll go look for Fifth Brother.” Sima You Ran said.
“Come back!” Sima Lie called out, “You also know about the Academys’ teleportation array. Nobody knows where You Yue’s been sent to. The kingdom’s so huge, where would you go to look.”
“But we can’t just wait here!” Sima You Ming said.
“Apart from waiting, there’s nothing else we can do right now.” Sima Lie said.
“But Fifth Brother’s life jade is still in good condition. We can also pretty much guess his current situation.” Sima You Ran said. “Fifth Brother must have encountered some kind of situation and cannot return for awhile. Who knows, maybe he will return in a few days.”
During the following days, Feng Zhi Xing would come by every few days to enquire about the condition of You Yue’s life jade. Everyone also become accustomed to checking the condition of the life jade every day.
Although they knew that she was currently alive, within the academy, they disseminated the information that Sima You Yue had entered through the fourth teleportation array and had been sent to some godforsaken place and died.
When this piece of news was being passed around, there were people in the academy who took pleasure in other’s suffering. Of course, those who hated Sima You Yue were amongst the happy ones. The ones who were the happiest were the Murong An and Nalan family.
Amongst those who were worried, apart from her dorm roommates and Feng Zhi Xing, it was actually Meng Ting.
The days passed one by one. An entire month had gone by but Sima You Yue had yet to return. Apart from those few worried people, the others had apparently been convinced that she was already dead. He Qiu Zhi’s worried heart had also slowly calmed down.
During the time where everyone was incomparably worried about Sima You Yue, she was actually deep in meditation, cultivating.
Because she had already reached the ranks of the Spirit Lord, she no longer had any need to eat. As a result, she had cultivated non stop for a few days. Following the saying of the previous generations, a few days passed by with the blink of an eye.
After waiting for her to blink a few times, lights that signified an advancement in rank appeared under her feet. After she had finished advancing, she was already at the fifth rank.
The Spiritual Qi inside the cave had gradually dissipated to nothing. Sima You Yue glanced around at her surroundings and never thought that this inconspicuous cave would actually accumulate so much Spiritual Qi of the fire attribute. Furthermore, it was so dense. It had allowed her rise four whole spirit ranks in but a moment.
“It is merely the results of this environment.” Little Spirit voiced out, “With the agreement that you initially had with that Spirit Beast egg, at that time you had some semblance of force accumulating in your body. It wouldn’t have let you grow by so much in such a short while. Right now, it’s being released little by little. It was with the aid of this environment that you actually rose up four ranks.”
So it was actually because of this Spirit Beast Egg!
If it was an egg that allowed one’s spiritual energy to rise by so much; what kind of Spirit Beast would this be?
“Yue Yue, while you were practicing, we went outside to take a look. Outside of this canyon lies a range of mountains. This mountain range appears to be huge.”
“A huge mountain range?” Sima You Yue started to search her brain for information. A large mountain range in Bei Chen, one of it was Pu Luo mountain range in the North, while one of it was Bi Li mountain range in the South.
Comparing these two mountain ranges, Pu Luo appeared to be slightly smaller while Bi Li was a little bigger. Also, the spirit animals that were living on Bi Li mountain range were much higher in quality.
“I don’t know whether we are on Bi Li mountain range or Pu Luo mountain range.” She stood up and pat the dust off her clothes.
“The problem will be solved if we just leave the canyon, catch a spirit beast and ask it.” Little Roar said.
“Yup, this is the only thing we can do now.”
Sima You Yue hugged Little Roar and exited the cave. Following along the canyon, they left really quickly and entered a valley. Before they had the opportunity to scan their surroundings, she heard Little Roar say, “Yue Yue, there’s a person on this side of the river!”
Sima You Yue looked towards the river bank and saw a person lying on a huge rock by the river side. He was sprawled on top of the rock and his face was facing to one side, the rock was dyed red as fresh red blood was flowing out from beneath the body.
