The Return Of Her Memory (3)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
“Silly. You have always been on my wrist, so you should have absorbed my spiritual power on your own, not relying on me to transfer energy to you. When did you become so stupid?”
“Master, it did not work. There is something odd about the spiritual power in your body. It seemed to be sealed and locked by a special spell. There was a limit to my absorption, which is why I have been on and off all this time.”
Was there a spell to seal off the access to her spiritual power? Gu Xijiu tried to sense the difference in her body and found a weak, inaccessible prohibition somewhere around the acupoint of her spiritual reservoir. There was an incantation that worked as a seal, glistening with familiar fonts.
Gu Xijiu recognized the writings immediately. It was Di Fuyi who wrote them. Needless to say, he must have placed the prohibiting spell on her. Astonished, Gu Xijiu realized that the only way to place the spell was through skin contact. He must have done it during that night when they shared an intimate moment.
Di Fuyi image suddenly flashed before her eyes. She rubbed her temples to dismiss the thought of him. She wanted to call him a little bastard like how she used to in the Upper Bound. However, it did not feel the same after all that they had been through in the Shura World.
“Master, when did your memory return?” Puzzled, the Firmament Stone interrupted her contemplation.
“It has not been long, then. How did you recall your memory all of a sudden?”
Gu Xijiu did not know for certain. It started to happen when she witnessed the scene at the restaurant. The fragments of her long-buried memory started to surface, piece by piece. She had a hard time trying to connect the dots at once, but it eventually came to her. She began to feel slightly ill at first, so she sat and began to meditate. After a torturous headache and dizziness, she was finally able to recall all of her memory.
She remembered who she used to be. She recalled the mission that was started a few centuries ago. She thought of Huang Tu who she had been painstakingly looking for. Also, she recalled her encounter with Shen Nianmo as well.
On top of that, she remembered every moment that she had spent with Yun Yanli in heaven. When her memory returned, she was still with Yun Yanli. She tried hard to suppress her emotions as if nothing had occurred. When Yun Yanli asked about her plan, she convinced him that nothing had changed by saying that she had to return to Luo Hua City to visit her people.
Yun Yanli believed her, so he gave her some gentle reminders before parting ways. They had their own rides so they would not usually travel together. Unless necessary, Gu Xijiu would not usually use her teleportation skill.
Gu Xijiu’s ride was a Clouded Leopard King, considered one of the most ferocious beasts. It had been cultivating for hundreds of years and was on the verge of achieving its human form. However, it was unfortunately captured by Gu Xijiu and ended up becoming her ride. Its speed was incredible, and it had a unique scent that could keep all other beasts away. Its scent was easily recognizable. Whenever Yun Yanli was looking for Gu Xijiu, he would use the blood butterfly to track the beast’s path. The method worked unfailingly.
After they parted ways, Gu Xijiu rode the Clouded Leopard for about a hundred miles before letting the beast continue its journey to Luo Hua City alone. As for her, she teleported back to where she used to be.
After recalling her memory, some doubts about Yun Yanli started to surface. For example, how did he end up in the Shura World? It was not easy to descend from heaven to the Shura World. There were millions of different world outside heaven. The chances of coming to the Shura Word on purpose were even slimmer than winning the grand prize in a lottery.
Di Fuyi told her that her presence in the Shura World was fate. On the other hand, he had to put in a lot of effort to be here. It was also impossible for him to do so without his father’s help. So how did Yun Yanli come here? It could not be a coincidence, could it?
