1231 Food dumpOn this night, nobody from heartbreak valley rested. They ate and drank all the way till daylight.
Sima You Yue did not have any spirit energy and her body was much weaker. Since she didn’t get to rest these two days, she was extremely tired.
That was why she waited for everyone to leave before she finally went back to rest.
Before Sima You Lin left, he noticed that she kept on yawning. That was why, when she had gone, he asked the others, “Do you guys feel like something is different about You Yue?”
“There does seem to be a difference.” Sima You Ming said, “It feels like she’s become a normal person.”
“You Yue’s spirit energy has been sealed, so she’s now the same as any ordinary person.” Bei Gong Tang said.
“What?!” Her brothers cried out, “How did that happen?”
“Don’t be too anxious, Yin Lin said that You Yue would be fine.” Fatty Qu said.
“Really?” Sima You Lin didn’t quite believe him. Ever her spirit energy had been sealed away. How was that fine?
“If it was You Yue who said it, we wouldn’t have believed it either. However, Yin Lin really did say that.” Wei Zi Qi said, “I have asked Brother Feng. Yin Lin definitely did say this.”
“That’s fine, then.”
Sima You Ming and the others let out a breath. They knew Yin Lin as well. Since he said that it was fine, it would really be alright.
If Sima You Yue heard these words, she would probably be depressed. What did they mean when they said they wouldn’t have believed her? Were her words that unreliable?!
“Do you guys know what happened?” Sima You Qi asked.
“Yeah, You Yue told us.”
“Tell us, then.”
Sima You Yue slept all the way till late at night. Finally, it was the growling of her stomach that woke her up.
She rubbed her belly with her hand and sighed, “I don’t have spirit energy, so I’m like the average person. I feel sleepy and hungry again. This isn’t a bad feeling!”
She rolled around for the bed a little longer until she was really too hungry and couldn’t help but crawl up to search for food.
The moment she opened her door, she saw Sima You Lin and the others talking inside her courtyard.
“What are you guys doing here?” She asked suspiciously.
“You don’t have any spirit energy, but can you not sense anything anymore either?” Sima You Qi walked over and asked as he grabbed onto her wrist.
“I can but I was a little lazy so I stopped scanning the area once I returned to the courtyard.” In order to keep things simple, she casually said this sentence.
“It’s good that your body is fine.” Sima You Qi let go of her wrist.
Sima You Yue walked over, but she didn’t see Bei Gong Tang, “Where’s Bei Gong?”
“She told us just now that you would probably wake up when you were hungry, so she went to cook something.” Fatty Qu said.
“Great!” Sima You Yue sat in front of the stone table, waiting for Bei Gong to bring her something to eat.
The others looked at her as she rubbed her face, asking, “Is there something on my face?”
“Little Sis, don’t worry. Since Yin Lin said that you would be fine, you will be fine.” Sima You Le said.
“Eh?” Sima You Yue didn’t know why they would suddenly say this, “I’m not worried, though!”
“Of course!” Sima You Yue said with a smile, “Although I can’t use my spirit energy, it’s not necessarily a bad thing.”
“Why do you say that?” Fatty Qu’s thoughts were also one step behind everyone else’s.
“I’ve been going too fast these years, chasing after the next level to become stronger. There are many things that I haven’t been able to complete. To put it simply, I haven’t gone deep enough.” Sima You Yue said, “Now that I don’t have to put in effort into my raw strength, I can take the opportunity to think about the previous things. I can plan the path ahead and stabilise my frame of mind.”
“It’s good that you’re able to think that way.” Sima You Lin and the others were initially worried that her lighthearted attitude from before was just a facade. Hearing her now, they realised that she really wasn’t that anxious. In that case, they didn’t have to worry about her.
Although it might delay her for a few years, this might end up being a good thing. There were always two sides to a coin, right?
“Why isn’t Bei Gong here yet! I’m going to starve to death!” She rubbed her belly.
Sigh, although hunger was a basic part of life, it really felt uncomfortable to be hungry!
“I could hear you guys from downstairs.” Bei Gong Tang came up from the mountain and smiled as she pushed open the door to her courtyard.
Sima You Yue saw Bei Gong Tang and her eyes lit up.
When Bei Gong Tang saw her expression, she shook her head with a smile. She came to the side of the table and, with a wave of her hand, four different dishes and a bowl of rice appeared in front of everyone.
Sima You Yue excitedly took the chopsticks, picked up an emerald vegetable and ate it.
“Mm, Bei Gong’s cooking is getting increasingly delicious. This dish is really good!”
“It’s not that my skills have improved, it’s just that you’re too hungry.” Bei Gong Tang said, “In the past, although you ate these things often, you weren’t actually hungry. You were eating for the sake of it. It’s different from the way you are now.”
Sima You Yue swallowed the vegetable and sighed, “I didn’t think that I would ever in this life be able to taste the heavenly taste of food that only comes with a hungry stomach. Honestly though, it isn’t a nice feeling.”
“I already told Aunt Yi and the others. From now on, you will get three meals a day. They will cook for you.” Bei Gong Tang said.
“Aunt Yi’s cooking skills aren’t bad.” Sima You Yue said, “If it’s anyone else, let’s just forget it.”
“Aunt Yi said that she would cook for you personally everyday. So you should just eat it obediently. Don’t worry about those unnecessary things.”
“Sigh…” Sima You Yue sighed deeply as she emptied the contents of the four dishes along with her bowl of rice.
“No way, You Yue, you actually ate everything by yourself? You’re not able to use any spirit energy now, you know. Don’t get indigestion.” Fatty Qu said.
Sima You Yue rubbed her belly and said, “I don’t feel like I ate too much. I feel like I would still be able to eat even two more big bowls of food.”
“When did your appetite grow so much?”
Sima You Yue was a little surprised as well, “I got used to eating a lot of food when I had spirit energy. That I’m still able to eat this much even without spirit energy is a little strange. Could it be that I’m naturally a food dump?”
“Your appetite didn’t use to be so big.” Sima You Ming exposed her, “When you first started cultivating, you didn’t have that big of an appetite.”
“It’s possible that it changed because of your physique.” Sima You Lin said, “Your body doesn’t stand out, but your strength is nothing to look down on. Your ability to consume would naturally be great. You used to be able to use spirit skills, so it wasn’t obvious. Now that you don’t’ have any spirit skills, you can only use food to nourish yourself.”
Everyone thought about it and agreed that it was very possible. However, she didn’t like this theory.
“So you’re saying that I have to eat a lot in order to be able to fulfill my body’s needs? Wouldn’t I be doing nothing but eating all day then?”
