The man in black continued to engage in a conversation with Die Er. She answered everything that the man needed to know. Shortly after, Die Er was assigned another mission. She left promptly.
Meanwhile, the man in green returned with the Longevity Locket. The man in black examined the Longevity Locket for a while and found nothing strange about it. It was a locket with a rather ordinary design, complemented with a finely-made jade piece.
After some thought, the master decided to send the man in green on a mission to give the locket back. Certainly, he was not interested in the jewelry, especially when it was meant as a gift to a young child.
The man in green robe added before leaving, “Master, should I strengthen the array formation now?”
“Yes.” the man in black nodded. The two of them then proceeded to another part of the garden and disappeared into the darkness.
Seconds later, the garden returned to its usual tranquility. This bamboo garden had an aesthetic appeal; it had some of the best views of the rocky mountains and endless rows of purple trees.
The man in black was leaning against one of the rocks a few moments ago while having a conversation with his followers. About 30 feet away, stood a rock in the shape of a human. After they left, the human-shaped rock started shaking violently and all of a sudden, turned into a young lady in a grey dress. She was Gu Xijiu, who was rumored to have returned to Luo Hua City.
After her emergence, she took out another rock of similar size from her storage bag to replace the empty spot. The place was very quiet and not frequently visited. Gu Xijiu had leaned against one of the bamboo trees and stood lazily. She watched as the man in black disappeared from a distance and smiled.
She looked at the bracelet on her wrist and gave it a few gentle taps. “Little Cang, stop playing dead. I have transferred some spiritual power to you. It is time for you to wake up.”
The dull and black bracelet on her wrist finally came alive and flickered with a weak glimmer of light. In Gu Xijiu’s head, a conversation started to surface, “Master, I am injured. This world is not suitable for me.” It must be badly injured. Even its voice sounded weak with a lack of vitality.
Gu Xijiu teased, “Neither is it for me. Tell me, what kind of setting is this? I have never committed anything sinful in heaven. I have even rescued the lives of many people there, and yet I was sent to this place without any memory. I have wasted months here living my life like a savage. What is the sense in all this? The heavenly law has been very unfair to me!”
“Master, your memory has returned!” The Firmament Stone sounded hopeful and excited.
“Of course. Did you really think that I would lose my memory forever?”
“Definitely not. Master, I thought that your memory would only return to you when you finally ascended to heaven. After all, your loss of memory and your deployment here are meant as a punishment. It could not be negotiated.”
Gu Xijiu was surprised as she exclaimed, “Since you knew that I lost my memory, why didn’t you give me any hints before? Little Cang, are you looking for trouble?”
“I’m innocent!” The Firmament Stone added, “Master, ever since we came here, my spiritual power has been drained. There was no way I could access any spiritual intelligence. The advancement of your spiritual power to level eight has finally enabled me to absorb some of your power to stay conscious. As I was still very weak, there was no way I could communicate with you. Also, you have been keeping yourself safe, so there was no need for me to hint anything to you. Thus, I remained quiet all this time, until you finally transferred your spiritual power to me. Otherwise, I would not even be able to talk.”
