Chapter 59: Reunion (2)
Just like this, Ye Yu ended up wearing the hair accessories that were heavily tilted to one side, causing her a sore neck. Then, she had to wear complicated and detailed clothes. In Ye Residence, she ended up spending nearly the entire day just following the procedures of the ceremony, finally getting into the horse carriage heading towards the residence around the evening.
The moment she entered the wide and spacious horse carriage, Ye Yu glanced around and made sure there was no one staring at her before lying down on the bed of the carriage as if she was half-dead.
“If this wasn’t the body of a cultivator, I probably would’ve been carried into the palace now.”
The system hesitated before kindly reminding, “My host, you will be carried in later on.”
Ye Yu pretended to not hear this and used the support of the wall to sit up, asking in her heart, “How come I don’t know a single person within the residence?”
The system was reluctant to answer before it carefully retorted, “Why…would you know them?”
Ye Yu replied, “I didn’t inherit the original host’s memory?”
“The carrier of the mental memory within the devil/immortal mainland would be the soul, however the original host’s soul had been separated from the body already. Therefore, you naturally cannot inherit the mental memory.”
Ye Yu sharply caught the system’s use of words and retorted, “‘mental memory?’ There are other types of memories?”
“It’s different from the mental memory, but this new kind of memory can be overcomed or changed by consciousness within a short period of time. However, it can’t be removed.” The system explained, “For example, if you can feel danger approaching, even if you’re not used to the body’s essence qi right now, the body will instinctively dodge and attack.”
Ye Yu nodded as if in deep thought.
“But since you’re the system, does that mean I can still tell fortune even without the phone?”
The system seemed to have processed the phrase, “tell fortune” before it opened its mouth, a bit confused.
“Sorry, my host. Because the carrier contains the majority of the data, when the carrier isn’t present, I only have limited power. There is a limit to how many times I can… ‘tell fortune’ every day. However, there is no need for physical touch now. As long as you extend your consciousness to the person who you want to examine.”
Ye Yu knitted her eyebrows and asked, “How many times daily?”
“…” Ye Yu knitted her eyebrows even more. “From this, it seems like I need to go out and earn a living. I can only act like a beggar or start my own business.”
The system chose to remain silent.
Ye Yu lied down on the narrow bed within the carriage and held the dingling hair accessories, glancing outside the horse carriage without a target in mind.
After that, she noticed the person at the very front of the fleet who was riding a sturdy and big horse.
“Since this morning when I was going through the process and paying respects to people, he seemed to be standing by my side… When I tripped due to this dress, he even helped me. Now that I’m being sent to the palace for marriage, he’s the one in front again.”
Ye Yu asked the system, “So, who is he to the original host?”
The system replied, “My host, please extend your consciousness to him and I’ll investigate this for you.”
Ye Yu followed the instructions and the person paused for a second.
The system’s happy voice rang and it said, “He’s the original host’s elder brother, Ye Yunsheng.”
Ye Yu was stunned and asked, “Wasn’t Princess Ye the only daughter?”
“Indeed. Therefore, he’s just an orphan that Prince Ye had picked from outside. Due to his natural talent in cultivation, he was extremely valued by the Lord.” The system hesitated before saying, “But he had different political views than the Lord and even avoided Xuan Bin’s recruit. Therefore, he doesn’t have actual power within the devil city.”
Ye Yu touched her chin and said, “It sounds like he’s the future subordinate made for the lead.” She then tilted her head, questioning, “Why do I feel like he felt something when I extended my consciousness over?”
“…” The system’s electronic voice became a bit bashful. “I told you that Ye Yunsheng is a natural talent in cultivation. In other words, his cultivation is higher than yours, so he has detected you trying to investigate him.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
This is a pit-filler system? It probably has an extra “fill.”
But at this point, Ye Yu had no choice but to submit to fate.
“…Then how is his relationship with the original host?”
