Huo Yuhao knew why she came. He was a little apologetic as he said, "Sorry, I was in a special situation earlier."
"Follow me. I'll return your spirit now."
After hearing his words, Na Na appeared much more relieved. For some reason, she trusted him. It might be because of his embarrassment the other time. Na Na's face turned hot as she thought of that incident. After she pondered over the matter, she realized she was too desperate. It was just that……
Just as her thoughts were a little messy, she followed Huo Yuhao into his room.
Huo Yuhao didn't ask her to sit down as a form of polite gesture. He was still reeling from that incident! He was awkward as he saw Na Na again.
Huo Yuhao said, "Your spirit was indeed sealed by me. My martial soul is spiritual-type and your soul skill has some form of spirituality in it. That's why I could repress it. Try to use your Avenging Spirit less frequently in the future. While it's powerful, you'll be in deep trouble if your opponent curbs you. After all, it's not going to be a simple sparring when you fight outside after you graduate."
"Okay." Na Na nodded her head and seemed very obedient.
Huo Yuhao didn't want her to stay for too long either, in case he was reminded of what he shouldn't have seen. He shut his eyes and muttered an incantation. His right hand pressed against his head before a small ball of golden light was released from his forehead under the guidance of his index finger.
"Focus, relax, don't resist." Huo Yuhao said.
Na Na quickly relaxed her body and shut her eyes. She waited quietly.
Huo Yuhao's index finger pointed forward and the ball of golden light was shot towards her forehead. She jerked suddenly and couldn't help but tremble. A layer of golden extent extended from her head down to her toes before it rose all the way to her head again.
Huo Yuhao retracted his right hand and took a careful look at her. Elder Yi was the one who taught him such a method to return her spirit, but it was his first time using it. He was also a little anxious.
Fortunately, Na Na recovered quickly. When she opened her eyes again, a golden glow flashed across her eyes.
"It's done?" Huo Yuhao asked.
Na Na nodded her head hurriedly and was excited, "My spirit feels much more condensed and even my martial soul has been enhanced. Thanks. How did you do it?"
Huo Yuhao hesitated for a moment and replied, "This is my secret. I can't tell you." He couldn't tell Na Na that her spirit was kept within his spiritual sea for some time, thus it managed to transform along with his spiritual power and gained an increase as he reached the level of the Boundless Ocean.
Na Na didn't probe further. However, she looked at Huo Yuhao in a different way now.
Huo Yuhao said, "Alright, I've returned your spirit back to you. If there's nothing else, go back and rest early. You must meditate and cultivate when you get back so that you can stabilize your spirit."
"Okay." Na Na acknowledged his words before leaving the room.
Huo Yuhao furrowed his brows slightly. After all, he returned her spirit back readily. However, she didn't even say a word of goodbye to him. Even so, it was still a good thing that she left. He finally managed to settle this matter.
However, he was quickly wide-eyed.
That's because Na Na didn't leave the room as she got to the door. She shut the door that he had intentionally left ajar and even locked it. Huo Yuhao could clearly recall that she stripped naked in that position!
"What're you doing?" Huo Yuhao was frantic as he reached in front of Na Na and grabbed her shoulder.
Na Na shook her body and stepped to her side. Huo Yuhao grabbed hold onto nothing. Huo Yuhao wasn't Na Na's match in terms of speed, since she was an agile-type Soul King from the Active Control Soul Tool Department. Her Spectre was also very effective in increasing her speed.
Just as Huo Yuhao was alarmed and was ready to take action, Na Na did something unexpected.
As she avoided him, she quickly collapsed to her knees. Huo Yuhao missed as he tried to grab her hand.
"What, what are you doing?" Huo Yuhao retreated two steps quickly and was shocked as he looked at Na Na.
Na Na's eyes turned red, "Huo Yuhao, please help me."
"Get up first." Huo Yuhao turned away and wouldn't accept her behavior.
Na Na shook her head forcefully. She also started to tear, "Let me kneel as I speak. I……"
Huo Yuhao said decisively, "If you continue acting like this, I'll chase you out." As he said, he quickly walked to the door.
"No!" Na Na grabbed hold onto his legs and stuck her body to them. She sobbed while speaking, "Don't chase me out. I'll stand up to speak."
As she spoke, she stood up as she used Huo Yuhao as her support. She lowered her head in tears, as if she had committed a mistake.
Huo Yuhao's heart softened and he pointed to a chair on the side, "Take a seat."
Na Na walked towards the chair obediently and softly said, "Can you listen to my story?"
Huo Yuhao laughed bitterly, "Will you leave if I don't let you tell me?
Na Na blushed and said, "I came from a noble family. My father is a baron from the Sun Moon Empire, considered as the lowest among all nobilities. Although we don't have land, we have some estates and shops. We're quite well-off. My father's innate martial soul has no soul power, thus he couldn't become a soul master."
"My parents met because of a coincidence. My father was out on a leisure travel and bumped into my mother, who was critically injured after hunting soul beasts. My mother fainted when she saw my father. He saved her and helped her to escape danger. However, he had no choice but to bring her back because her injuries were too serious."
"She recuperated for a month before she fully recovered. My father's meticulous care touched her. On the day she was supposed to leave, he made her stay and expressed his love for her. However, she told him that she's an inauspicious character. Making her stay will only cause harm to him. He was stubborn and told her he wasn't afraid. He wasn't a superstitious person."
Na Na's look in her eyes became obscure as he recounted the memories of the past. Huo Yuhao was also listening seriously to her.
"My mother was moved after interacting with him for a month and sensing his meticulous care towards her. After hesitating, she decided to stay. Their relationship blossomed, and they eventually got married three months later. After a year, I was born."
"While my father is a nobility, he's a kind person. He's very nice to all our tenants. After my mother married him, she stayed at home. Before I was six, we led a happy life. It was until someone…"
Na Na's tears flowed again as she reached this point.
"I was six then. One day, my mother told my father that she was going out. I was still small and pestered my mom to follow her. I only found out later that she went hunting for soul beasts. Her soul power had reached a bottleneck and she needed a soul ring to achieve a breakthrough. My mother was born ordinary and her cultivation was self-achieved. When she was small, she attended an elementary soul master academy and learned some simple knowledge. She didn't continue her education after that as she was broke. However, she managed to reach Rank 40 based on her own abilities when I was six years old and she became a Soul Ancestor. For an ordinary person, that was a very rare thing."
"My father encouraged my mother, but she was gone for half a year. She returned with a dismal look on her face after half a year. My father was too delighted then and didn't realize anything amiss. She managed to obtain her soul ring. My martial soul also awakened then. Like my mother, my martial soul was a Spectre."
"Not long after she returned, a bunch of strangers came to our house one day. I don't know what they say to her, but she left with them. My father tried to stop them, but he couldn't. From that day on, it became a nightmare for my family. My mother kept on leaving the house and she left for a long time each time she left the house. She always appeared very dismal when she returned, but her abilities kept getting stronger and stronger. I was sent to a soul master academy to study. At the start, I wasn't clear about what was going on at home. However, I realized some valuable items were missing from my home when I returned one day. My father seemed much older and my other rarely came home."
"I asked him what happened. However, he didn't say anything and only sighed. I tried to ask my mother, but I didn't even see her. When I was twelve, someone came to the academy to tell me that my father had passed away."
As she spoke till here, Na Na was almost inaudible from the crying. Huo Yuhao also couldn't grasp what she was saying. He stood up and passed her some tissue.
After a moment, Na Na finally managed to calm down. She continued, "I ran home like a maniac, but it was too late. He died with his eyes opened. Even though he had passed away, his eyes were still filled with a look of disbelief. It was as if he had seen something he couldn't understand."
"Who? Who killed daddy? There was an obvious fatal wound on his chest. Who's so cruel enough to kill daddy? I kept on shouting 'Daddy, Daddy!', but he couldn't hear me. He didn't wake up. What about mummy? Where did my mother go to? He's dead, but she's not around."
