Chapter 241: Scarlet Queen Bee
Sima You Yue saw the white ray of light and said, “We came just in time, she’s just about to enter the evolution!”
Sima You Lin surveyed the surroundings and said, “There are so many Spirit Beasts. It won’t be easy to get close. Furthermore, that Scarlet Bee is inside the beehive, there will be many bees protecting her.”
“Once it evolves into the Scarlet Queen Bee, she will need to leave the beehive for a while and come outside to baptise herself in the earth, absorbing every drop of the evolution fluid. We just need to grasp that opportunity.”
Sima You Yue was staring straight at that huge beehive, waiting for the red light rays to fade away. She hopped off Little Roc and said, “Thousand Resonance, Ya Guang, help me to hold off those Spirit Beasts. Just a moment will do.”
Those Spirit Beasts also began to move, rushing towards the beehive.
Countless bees surged out and charged at those Saint Beasts. Although they were not powerful, they were willing to stake their life to protect their queen.
As a group of bees died, another group of bees rushed out again, wave after wave.
Sima You Yue concealed her aura, using the blood in the canyon to conceal herself as she crept closer to the beehive.
A damp and scarlet colored bee was carried out and placed on the beehive, surrounded by many bees.
“She’s out!” Her heart was excited but that dense cluster of bees was giving her a bit of a headache.
No matter how many bees died, that damn Queen bee would not move.
A burst of Spirit power that was neither light nor heavy landed on the beehive and with a sway, it landed on the ground.
“Buzz buzz buzz-”
Those bees were infuriated as they left a few behind to protect the queen bee and the others flew towards the perpetrator.
Sima You Yue glanced gratefully at Sima You Lin, then wrapped her palm with her spiritual Qi. She then stretched forth a hand to catch the queen bee in her hand.
The average bee was just the size of a section of a finger, but the bees here were the length of an entire finger. Furthermore, the Scarlet Queen Bee was one foot long.
The Queen Bee was still really damp as she used two hands to catch her.
“Buzz buzz buzz-”
The brown bees saw that their queen was captured and they all raged and charged straight at Sima You Yue.
“Slap slap slap-”
At the crucial point, Thousand Resonance rushed over and stood beside Sima You Yue, using his seven tails to beat down those brown bees.
“Thank you, Thousand Resonance.” After Sima You Yue finished speaking, she closed her eyes and began to contract that Scarlet Queen Bee.
Although the Scarlet Queen Bee was quite weak, she was still aware of her surroundings. Her mental energy was powerful as well and wanted to reject Sima You Yue’s contract formation.
However, no matter how hard she tried to resist, she was unable to defeat the power of the imperial beast taming art. Adding on to that Sima You Yue’s terrifying mental energy, she was contracted at the end.
“You actually managed to retain your consciousness.” Sima You Yue could feel that the Scarlet Queen Bee had a very strong mental power and said to herself, “If I don’t contract her now and wait for her to regain her power, I’m afraid that she will be able to reject the contract. Since this is the case, I will contract you right now!”
Sima You Lin was currently battling the bees with much pain as each wave left him feeling overwhelmed when the contracting light suddenly lit up from within the canyon. It enveloped Sima You Yue and the Scarlet Bee, then became two separate beams of light, inserting into space between the beast and man’s eyebrows.
After that, two rays that signified an increase in rank flashed. Sima You Yue had increased to a Fifth Rank Spirit Overlord. She had actually risen by two ranks!
The Scarlet Queen Bee rose from fourth divine rank to fifth divine rank, giving Sima You Yue a shock.
“She was actually a fourth ranked divine beast… If i didn’t contract her right now, I’m afraid that nobody would ever be able to control her.” Sima You Yue gaped twice and gulped.
Sima You Lin looked at the man and beast that had increased in rank. He never expected that he would actually successfully contract her. Where did this perverse genius pop up from? He actually managed to contact so many Saint Beasts!
Since the Scarlet Queen Bee was weak, Sima You Yue placed her inside the Spirit Pagoda. She called for LIttle Roc and hopped onto his back and picked Sima You Lin up. Then, she used her contracted abilities to retrieve Ya Guang and Thousand Resonance into her contracted space. Then, she sat on Little Roc and flew off.
When those brown bees saw that their queen had been taken away, they gave up on those spirit beasts and all chased after them.
Sima You Yue did not return directly to the camp but stayed at the mountain top. She took out a few pill ingredients and placed them on a stone, then she took out the Scarlet Queen Bee and placed her on those pill ingredients.
The Scarlet Queen Bee looked weakly at Sima You Yue, then began to absorb the pill ingredients as well as the Spiritual Qi from the heaven and earth.
When Sima You Yue saw this, she took out a basin that had some diluted Soul Fluid. She placed the Scarlet Queen Bee inside, then began to refine the pill ingredients. She extracted the essences of those ingredients and placed them in the basin as well.
Sima You Lin watched as Sima You Yue took out those pill ingredients and was shocked by her skill. After that, he watched as she placed the queen Bee inside the soul fluid and guessed that the items must definitely be very expensive. He continued to observe the fluidity of her actions in refining the pill ingredients and guessed that she must definitely be an Alchemist whose rank was not low at all.
“Alchemist, Beast Master Tamer… It’s no wonder he obtained the Xuan Yuan Pavilion’s blue card.” Sima You Lin muttered. He admitted in his heart that this youth was much more powerful than he had anticipated.
It was lucky that the clan did not wrong a person with such talent. Or else, that person would regret it to his grave.
He squatted down and looked at the Scarlet Queen Bee that was fluttering inside satisfactorily and asked, “What does that do?”
“She’s just like a newborn baby right now. The more things she absorbs right now, the better her future will be.” Sima You Yue explained, “All these pill ingredients are things that are beneficial for her.”
“Buzz buzz buzz-” All those bees caught up and were on guard as they stared at the duo.
Sima You Yue looked at them and said, “Right now, I have already formed a contract with your queen. If you wish to stay with her then stay. If you don’t want to, you can leave.”
Sima You Lin saw that those bees were infuriated, but since the situation had already come to this, they had no way to change it. They could only choose to remain at Sima You Yue’s side.
“How are you going to handle this many bees?” Sima You Lin asked as he looked at the few thousand of brown bees.
“Look for a good place for them.” Sima You Yue said, “However, I have to wait till the Scarlet Queen Bee gets better first.”
Scarlet Queen Bee welcomed the sun as she absorbed each drop of its essence. Sima You Yue could feel as her power began to grow bit by bit. Especially her mental power, which went through a 180 degree change. As long as the circumstances were right, she would be able to grow to a terrifying height.
After half an hour had passed, the Scarlet Queen Bee finally absorbed every bit of the soul fluid. With a hum of her wings, she flew out of the basin.
“Alright, done.” Sima You Yue kept the basin away and said, “Scarlet Queen Bee, first take your bees and settle down somewhere.”
She kept all the bees away into the Spirit Pagoda. The environment there would be enough to attract them.
She was not afraid that Sima You Lin would find out about her secret. She had enough power now in this world to protect her own items.
These were also not her only trump cards. If anyone had any plans to hurt her, she would properly plan how to kill them.
She also believed that Sima You Lin would not do this kind of things because he was a smart man.
