Chapter 810: She Even Forgot About Him
Was I wrong to address them as seniors? Just as Chu Liuyue was about to ask how she should address the trio, she noticed their strange expressions and realized that something was amiss.
Both parties fell into a brief silence.
It was then that Dugu Mobao and the others realized that Yue’er was looking at them differently than before. It seemed as though she was looking at a group of strangers.
“Yue’er, you…” Diwu Zhangze felt something was off, but he couldn’t quite put his finger on it.
While staring at Chu Liuyue, Dugu Mobao pointed at himself and asked slowly, “Who am I?”
Both Lan Xiao’s and Diwu Zhangze’s expressions became grave when they realized that things seemed different from what they had expected.
Chu Liuyue’s heart tightened bit by bit as if it was being squeezed. Her throat felt dry when she tried to answer the question, eventually shaking her head. “I’m sorry, but I’ve never met you before. I don’t know who you are, so I apologize if I’ve offended you in any way.”
The air around them seemed to be freezing, and Chu Liuyue could detect an explosive surge of anger emanating from the boy. His face frosted over in an instant, and a deep crack instantly formed on the ground underneath his feet, spreading all over.
Despite having guessed that the trio had formidable powers, Chu Liuyue still couldn’t help but be shocked by the scene. The aura he released is already so powerful from him being angry. How much more powerful would it be if he strikes?
“Big Baby!” Lan Xiao shouted right away in a bid to stop him.
Dugu Mobao blinked and took a deep breath before retracting his aura. His expression, however, was glacial.
Lan Xiao didn’t tease him this time, given the fact that it was already very patient of him that he didn’t destroy this place after hearing what Chu Liuyue had said. Moreover, the main reason for Big Baby’s patience was because Yue’er had serious business to settle.
Big Baby really dotes on Yue’er a lot. Lan Xiao let out a heavy sigh as he looked at Chu Liuyue with a complicated gaze. “Do you really not remember us, Yue’er?”
They came over happily to see me, but because of my reply… Chu Liuyue felt somewhat guilty and terrible upon seeing their eyes dimming with disappointment. For a second, she even wished that she recognized them. This passing thought took her by surprise though, for she wasn’t so kind to feel that way toward strangers. Did I… really know them?
That question made her somewhat uneasy as she felt increasingly certain that she had lost a portion of her memory. Pushing the chaotic thoughts away, she tried her best to speak calmly. “No, I don’t.”
Even though Lan Xiao and the others had already expected this answer, their hearts still sank when they heard her affirmative reply.
How could she have forgotten us? All those times we spent together experiencing so many things… Now that she has a new body, she’s saying that she’s forgotten us all?! Holding onto the last shred of hope, Diwu Zhangze asked carefully, “This is just a joke, right?”
An apologetic look surfaced on Chu Liuyue’s face. “I’m sorry.”
Diwu Zhangze’s expression dimmed as he let out a bitter laugh. From Chu Liuyue’s blank and confused look, he could tell that she wasn’t joking with them. She had clearly forgotten everything.
Everyone fell silent, not knowing what to say.
Chu Liuyue frowned. I was reborn with this body’s memories, but I can’t find any memories relating to them, be it in the original Chu Liuyue’s memories or my own. That said, I have this unexplainable sense of familiarity toward them…
Lan Xiao and Diwu Zhangze exchanged looks. Never once have we expected that Yue’er has lost her memory. Just how much does she remember?! Her soul seems complete though…
Just then, Dugu Mobao stepped forward and asked, “What’s your name?”
The question baffled Chu Liuyue, given that she had just introduced herself not long ago. But all of a sudden, her expression became tense.
This slight change of expression was noted in Dugu Mobao’s eyes as he stared fixedly at her, seemingly waiting for something.
Chu Liuyue slowly clenched her hands, and her mind was in a jumbled mess. He’s waiting for me to admit that I’m Shangguan Yue! Hardly anyone knows about my true identity though! Even Qi Han only dared to approach me after finding many clues to confirm my identity. These people, however, seem to know who I am right from the start! How on earth did they recognize me? This is the first time I’m meeting them since I was reborn, and we didn’t even exchange many words with each other.
“The legendary three-eyed eagle’s remaining body can’t wait any longer.” A deep, lazy voice came from the side.
Chu Liuyue snapped back to her senses as she looked forward and noticed that the blood pearl had finished coagulating and that the eagle’s flesh—which had more or less healed—was waiting for the next step. She quickly gathered her thoughts and tossed the remaining herbs in.
Things were a little easier this time as the purplish-gold Buddha leaf had fused with the legendary three-eyed eagle. A white crystalline bone slowly flew over to the legendary three-eyed eagle and got surrounded by half a black shadow.
Chu Liuyue sent the blood pearl flying over as well.
Flesh and nerves started to form on the bone as the wing slowly took shape, but she dared not relax and continued staring at it closely.
Nobody knew what would happen until the last moment. She, as well as the legendary three-eyed eagle, had suffered and waited too long for this day. All their efforts would go to waste if they failed, so they had to succeed no matter what.
Seeing that Chu Liuyue had started working on forming the legendary three-eyed eagle’s body again, Dugu Mobao didn’t disturb despite his desperation to hear her answer. Well, there wasn’t a need for it to be honest.
He already knew what her answer was.
He turned to look at Rong Xiu—who was leaning against the stone wall at the side—and it was then that he realized the latter was still wearing a mask. What’s he trying to hide? Given his relationship with Yue’er, there’s no need for him to do such a thing. Not unless… Yue’er has also forgotten about him!
The thought of this made him narrow his eyes slightly. Just what exactly has happened in the last few years?! How did Yue’er still remember us when she’s forgotten the rest of us?!
Staring closely at Rong Xiu, he said, “I have something to ask you.”
