Chapter 184: Spirit Beast’s bloodline
Sima You yue nodded her head before looking at Little Tu, saying, “Do you want to?”
“I want to cultivate. I do not want to live this way forever.” Little Tu said definitively.
“However, this method will cause you so much pain that you would wish you were dead. It might even cost you your life. Are you still willing to try?” Sima You Yue asked
“No matter how much pain, I will handle it. Little Tu looked at Sima You Yue before climbing up and kneeling in front of her, holding her hand, saying, “Older sister, please help me!”
Sima You Yue saw Little Tu’s resolute gaze and knew that he must have gone through a lot in order to have this kind of character at such a young age.
She helped him up, saying “Your knee is still injured, don’t kneel anymore.”
“Older Sister, have you agreed?” Little Tu looked at Sima You Yue.
“My method is an unconventional gambit. As long as you can handle the pain, it can be done.”
“I will be able to. No matter what degree of pain, I will definitely endure it.” Little Tu said.
“You Yue, what method do you have?” Bei Gong Tang asked.
“Crimson Flame’s flame is able to burn anything. Even if there is a solid blockage within his meridians, it will not be able to resist the flame!” Sima You Yue said.
“Using flame to burn the solid blockage away?” Bei Gong Tang was extremely shocked by this method and asked, “Even Halcyon was unable to resist that flame. Will it have any detrimental effects on Little Tu?”
“It won’t have detrimental effects on him, but it will really hurt him for a moment.” Sima You Yue said, “If his determination is steadfast and he can persevere, it will be no problem.”
“Older Sister, if a moment of fate can change my fate, I am willing to give it a try. Even if I have to throw my life away eventually, it’s better than wandering through life aimlessly.” Little Tu said while looking at Bei Gong Tang.
Bei Gong Tang looked at Little Tu before nodded her head, saying, “Okay then. When will you do it for him?”
“There’s no rush.” Sima You Yue replied, “The wounds on his body have yet to heal. There’s still one or two days more before he’s completely recovered. Furthermore, I still have to refine quite a number of pills for him.”
“Older Sister is even an Alchemist?” Little Tu asked curiously when he heard that Sima You Yue was going to refine pills.
“That’s right.” Sima You Yue stretched out her hand and pinch Little Tu’s nose, saying, “Little Tu, when we’re outside, you can’t call me Older Sister. You have to call me Older Brother, do you understand?”
Little Tu nodded, saying, “I understand. Older Sis… Brother. You are different from everyone else.”
“What’s different about me?”
“My family once had an alchemist, but he was extremely arrogant. Nobody was worth anything to him, except for the family lord. His nose was held so high that it was touching heaven! Older sister isn’t arrogant at all. Little Tu really likes you.” Little Tu replied.
“Haha, who knew that you had such a glib tongue.” Sima You Yue laughed as she said.
“Everything I said is true.” Little Tu said seriously.
“Mm. This Older Brother believes it.” Sima You Yue smiled as she rubbed Little Tu’s head.
Little Tu appeared very pure to her. Although he had experienced more than a little hardship, his soul was still untainted. It really caused one to want to dote on him.
“Bei Gong, I’m going to go and prepare for a bit before helping him refine some pills. You can help him apply some ointment. We’ll let him take a pill in the afternoon as well.” Sima You Yue said as she stood up.
“Okay.” Bei Gong Tang nodded.
“Your Older Sister Bei Gong is also an alchemist, okay.” Thinking of the shocked expression that Little Tu had when he first found out that she was an alchemist, Sima You Yue could not help but tease a little bit before leaving.
Just as she thought, Little Tu was extremely shocked when he found out that Bei Gong Tang was an alchemist as well. He was extremely puzzled; Why were these two alchemists so different from the alchemist that he had met before?
Sima You Yue returned and saw that Halcyon was leaning against the pillar in front of her door.
“What’s up?” Sima You Yue asked.
“That kid. He has a Spirit Beast’s bloodline.” Halcyon said directly.
“Spirit Beast bloodline?” Sima You Yue looked around her before saying, “Let’s talk inside the house.”
After pushing the house open, the two of them entered and Sima You Yue closed the door, saying, “How do you know that Little Tu has Spirit Beast bloodline?”
“Smell.” Halcyon said, “Spirit Beasts who are powerful are more sensitive towards the smell of other Spirit Beasts.”
“Then do you know what kind of Spirit Beast’s bloodline he has?” Sima You Yue asked.
Halcyon shook his head, saying, “His bloodline have yet to awaken. However, his physique renders him unable to cultivate. That is why there is no way to awaken his bloodline.”
“Who knows, his ability could be related to his bloodline.” Sima You Yue said.
“It can be considered his good fortune to have encountered you guys.” Halcyon said, “Earlier on, I sensed his body and it may not be so that the blockage in his meridians can be burnt away even by my fire. However, if it’s the flame of that guy, there’s no problem.”
Only when he mentioned Crimson Flame, did Sima You Yue think of her earlier confusion. She asked, “Halcyon, aside from having the fire attribute, you have wind as well, don’t you?”
He had no idea why she would ask him this, however, he still nodded his head.
“You can even control space.” Sima You Yue said.
“Right.” Halcyon replied.
“At that time when you were chasing me, although it looked like I was running in front of you, you had actually created a barrier to contain me, am I right?” Sima You Yue asked.
Halcyon raised his eyebrows, “How did you know?”
Sima You Yue saw that he didn’t refute her, so she confirmed her suspicious. At that time, she had broken off contact with her Spirit Pagoda because he had imprisoned her in a separate space long ago.
“Guessed it.” Sima You Yue said. She did not tell him that she managed to guess it because she had lost contact with her Spirit Pagoda. “Right, can you Spirit Beasts become Array Masters as well?”
“Not possible.” Zheng MIng replied, “Spirit Beasts have limitations. We can’t become Alchemists, Armament Masters and Array Masters.”
“Then how are you able to control space?”
“Because of my eyes.”
“Your eyes?” SIma You Yue couldn’t understand. What did it have to do with his eyes?
Halcyon closed his eyes. When he opened them again, there were two more eyeballs in his two eyes.
He was called the Four Eyed Bird because there he had these two eyeballs.
Halcyon closed his eyes again and his eyes recovered their usual appearance when he opened them.
“You are able to use the power of space because of your eyes?” Sima You Yue asked.
“You could say that.” Halcyon said, “Different Spirit Beasts have different abilities according to their different attributes. Just like how I can control space, there are those that can manipulate flame.”
“So this is the case.” Sima You yue said, “Does that mean other Spirit Beats are unable to use this space?”
“Not necessarily.” Halcyon said, “In the past, I only knew that we four-eyed birds were able to do so. However, the world is vast. It’s not impossible for other Spirit Beasts to possess this attribute as well.”
“It would be great if I had a talent towards the manipulation of space.” Sima You Yue said enviously.
Halcyon glanced cooly at her, saying, “This is something inherent. There’s no point being jealous; you will never possess it.”
After he finished speaking, he stood up to leave, leaving behind Sima You Yue’s aggrieved silhouette that was glaring at him.
Heaving a sigh, she stood up to lock the door before entering the Spirit Pagoda with a flash. She appeared inside the pill refinement room directly.
“Master, what pills are you going to refine this time?” Little Spirit appeared and asked eagerly.
Ever since Sima You Yue was able to refine pills, he had his candy to eat once again. Right now, he was ecstatic seeing that she had appeared inside the pill refinement room.
