Chapter 26: Does He Understand? (2)
Ye Yu agreed to the statement with confidence. “Not only do I know where you live, but I also know where you will be living 2 decades from now. Do you need me to plan out the arrangement of your house right now?”
Li De didn’t understand some phrases, but he heard ‘2 decades’ clearly, making him hesitate for a second before frantically taking a step back.
“…This disciple doesn’t have as much talent as Master Ye. This disciple doesn’t dare to guess destiny…doesn’t dare…”
Ye Yu pursed her lips.
How is a coward like him suitable to be her disciple? But she already accepted the fee, so it didn’t seem suitable to fall out with him…
Thinking of this, Ye Yu cut to the chase, “This master came over today to get some information from her disciple.”
Li De’s eyes turned round and said, “Master Ye has the ability to tell fortune regarding destiny, so what does this disciple know that the master doesn’t already know?”
“What you’re saying is right too.” Ye Yu agreed without shame, blinking her eyes and smiling. “But it is better to travel 10,000 miles than to read 10,000 books. You have travelled extensively around the world and clearly knows more than this master regarding this field.”
Li De said, “What does Master Ye want to know about? Just tell me.”
Speaking of this, Ye Yu instinctively lowered her voice and asked, “Have you heard of any spiritual beast who can immediately grow from an infant to an adult within a month?”
Li De scrunched his eyebrows and pondered over this for a while before shaking his head.
“Although there are a lot of bizarre things in the world, all living things follow the natural order. The same goes for spiritual beasts. Growing from an infant to an adult in a month is…”
Before Li De finished his words, he stopped first.
Seeing his expression, Ye Yu couldn’t help but step forward curiously. “What? Did that really happen?”
Between this time, Li De’s expression changed several times and in the end, he looked hesitatingly at Ye Yu.
“I’ve never heard of this happening for spiritual beasts.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
“Then, did you choke on your saliva before?”
Li De shook his head in a solemn expression, saying, “Although I’ve never heard of this happening to spiritual beasts, there was a rumor within the immortal and devil world. There were some families with ancient bloodline heritage that could reach the Beast Realm of the devil world or the Spirit Realm of the immortal world by using it as substitution to cultivate. The spiritual beast within the dantian would’ve taken its shape, so the cultivator could skip through the stages.”
Ye Yu was still confused, “But since cultivators are able to skip the Infant Realm or the Sprout realm and reach their corresponding Beast Realm or Spirit Realm, the spiritual beast within the public region would’ve long formed its shape. Then, how could their size change within a few days?”
Li De shook his head.
“Master Ye, you don’t know but after reaching the Beast or Spirit Realm, the moment a cultivator loses their essential qi, their cultivation will be harmed. The spiritual beast formed by the essential qi within the dantian will become weaker.”
“So, you’re saying…”
“If they are able to take the shape of the spiritual beast within the dantian, then they must’ve been influenced to a certain degree by the essential qi in the dantian. Once they recover from their injury, it is possible for them to take on the change Master Ye describes within a month.”
Ye Yu gulped and swallowed her saliva.
Right now, she couldn’t attend to her opening saying when she came here, talking about how she should ‘remain calm even if Mt. Tai collapsed.’ Her face turned pale as she stared at Li De.
“I have another question…”
Looking at Ye Yu’s reaction, Li De couldn’t help but be nervous as well.
“Master Ye, please do tell.”
“Can spiritual beasts…understand humans?”
Li De didn’t understand where the question was coming from, but shook his head after thinking about it.
“There had been no records of this within the immortal or devil world.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
Uh oh. It seemed like she had played too much of a joke.
