Duan Ling Tian frowned and interrupted Wang Ba. “I know your name’s Bastard, you don’t have to keep reminding me.” He was annoyed by him.
When Wang Ba noticed his continuous verbal mistakes, he did not continue dwelling on it since he knew it would make things worse.
Wang Ba then changed the topic. “Kid, what I want isn’t verbal gratitude… I want you to use your action to thank me. Take action, understand?”
“Take action? What kind of act do you want me to perform as a form of thank you?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“It’s just a small matter… Just help me find a body of a lineal descendant from a dragon clan,” Wang Ba said casually as though looking for the body of a lineal descendant from a dragon clan was a walk in the park.
“The dragon clan’s lineal descendant? What’s that?” Duan Ling Tian asked doubtfully.
“You’ll know in the future… Promise me first,” Wang Ba said. He sounded like he was up to something.
However, Duan Ling Tian did not notice that and agreed immediately. “Alright, I’ll help you find the body of a lineal descendant from the dragon clan in the future… You’ll leave my body at that time?”
“Of course! Do you think I like living in your body?” Wang Ba said, irritated. If not for the fact that he had no other option, he would not willingly stay in this brat’s body.
“Sigh… I can’t recall who I am now, neither can I recall the people I know apart from you.” Duan Ling Tian sighed. “So, where should I go now?”
“Kid, there’s a city in the east… I suggest you take a look over there, maybe you’ll see someone you know,” Wang Ba said.
Naturally, it was complete nonsense. He only said that to comfort Duan Ling Tian.
“Alright then. I’ll go there.” Duan Ling Tian replied and nodded. He leaped in preparation to fly.
Unfortunately, he was unable to fly.
“Kid, don’t forget you just restored your Dantian. Your cultivation base has not recovered to the Innate Stage yet,” Wang Ba reminded him.
Only martial artists at the Innate Stage were able to fly. It was an ironclad law of Dao Martial Saint Land, and it was also an ironclad law of the three great Mortal Continents including Cloud Continent.
On Cloud Continent, the lowest stage of Innate Stage was called the Void Prying Stage.
“I’ll kill the person who severed my Dantian when I remember who he is.” Duan Ling Tian was angry.
He could no longer fly, he could only run.
Fortunately, the city was not far from the mountain range. With his legs’ strength, a tiny black dot appeared before him after a while.
The tiny little dot continued growing before it eventually turned into a big and magnificent city.
The city was like a crouching gigantic beast. It looked oppressive when one looked at it from afar.
There were some martial artists entering and exiting the city occasionally.
Duan Ling Tian’s arrival did not capture any of the martial artist’s attention. Although he was different from the others who were flying since he was walking, he did not attract any attention.
After all, anything could happen, and there were many kinds of people on Cloud Continent.
“Duan Ling Tian?” When Duan Ling Tian entered the city, a surprised voice sounded from behind him. The voice was getting closer and closer to him.
However, Duan Ling Tian did not bother with the owner of that voice at all.
It was not intentional because he had no idea his name was Duan Ling Tian.
Soon after, two silhouettes arrived before Duan Ling Tian almost at the same time and stopped him.
The two silhouettes belonged to two young men dressed in red and blue respectively. The red-clad young man looked at Duan Ling Tian as he said, “Duan Ling Tian.”
“You’re calling me?” Duan Ling Tian was surprised when he saw the two identical young men’s sudden appearance. He was stunned when he heard the red-clad young man calling him Duan Ling Tian as he looked at him.
Did the red-clad young man know him?
Wang Ba, to be more precise, his soul, that was in Duan Ling Tian body could not help but mutter to himself, “How can there be such a coincidence?”
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t… don’t tell me you don’t recognize us?” The red-clad young man was stunned.
“I know both of you?” Duan Ling Tian looked confused. He said softly, “I don’t remember both of you… Also, did you call me Duan Ling Tian? Is my name Duan Ling Tian?”
“You… You even forgot your own name?” The red-clad young man was completely shocked.
On the other hand, the blue-clad young man next to him who was silent all along revealed a shocked expression on his originally emotionless face.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded before he shook his head again. He said, “I lost part of my memory… So my name’s Duan Ling Tian.”
“Of course! You’re Duan Ling Tian. The one and only Duan Ling Tian,” the red-clad young man said as he nodded.
“I don’t remember both of you… Did I know both of you before I lost my memory?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously as he looked the two young men who looked identical.
“How can you remember us when you don’t even remember your own name, ” the red-clad young man said with a forced smile on his face. He shook his head. “But you certainly knew us before you lost your memory.”
“My name’s Nangong Yi, and he’s Nangong Chen. We’re twin brothers… If you don’t remember us, do you remember the Five Element Sect? The Five Element Sect in the northern desert of the eastern zone.
The red-clad young man introduced himself and the blue-clad young man next to him before he added, “We met each other at the Five Element Sect… Our master is the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect.”
“Nangong Yi? Nangong Chen? I don’t remember,” Duan Ling Tian said with a frown. He shook his head.
“Duan Ling Tian, what exactly…” Just when Nangong Yi was about to ask Duan Ling Tian how he lost his memory, an earth-shattering scream interrupted him.
“Nangong Chen! Nangong Yi!” The earth-shattering scream came from behind Duan Ling Tian, shocking him.
“Somebody’s calling both of you.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Nangong brothers.
“Duan Ling Tian, if that person comes after us and asks you about us… Tell him you don’t know us.”
Duan Ling Tian noticed the change in Nangong Yi’s expression.
Nangong Yi left after informing Duan Ling Tian and flew toward the city ahead with Nangong Chen in tow as though they were avoiding the God of Plague.
Nangong Yi just remembered that he and Nangong Chen were being hunted by an old fellow at the moment. They had completely forgotten about it when they saw Duan Ling Tian.
At this moment, a ghost-like silhouette appeared before Duan Ling Tian.
It was an old man dressed in a black robe. The black robe completely concealed him, even his face could not be seen. He emitted an eerie vibe.
Although Duan Ling Tian could not really see the old man’s appearance, he could see the old man’s eyes gleaming fiercely.
The old man stared at Duan Ling Tian before he chased after Nangong Chen and Nangong Yi into the city.
There were waves of terrifying aura on his body.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian had not regained his senses at this moment.
“Kid, it’s not easy bumping into someone you know. Do you want to see both of them die?” Wang Ba’s voice came at this very moment, causing Duan Ling Tian to snap back to reality.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression changed drastically, and he rushed toward the city ahead. He caught up to the black-robed old man in the distance.
Divine Dragon Form!
A five-colored energy surrounded Duan Ling Tian as he dashed out as though there was an invisible sword opening a path for him. He seemed like he had transformed into a five-colored Divine Dragon.
Although he had lost his memory, he could perform the movement martial skills that he had mastered subconsciously.
At this time, he was getting closer and closer to the black-robed old man.
On the north side of the vast city was a barren land. Everything was in ruin and had long been abandoned.
Usually, no one would come here.
However, two young men were facing their life-or-death here today.
“Nangong Chen! Nangong Yi! Both of you will definitely die today.” The black-robed old man moved like the wind as though he had turned into a ghost. He caught up to Nangong Chen and Nangong Yi in just a blink of an eye.
The Nangong brothers’ speed was far lacking compared to the black-robed old man.
“Sh*t!” Nangong Yi’s expression changed drastically when he noticed the sound of wind whistling behind them getting closer and closer.
Even Nangong Chen who was always emotionless had a terrible expression on his face.
In just an instant, the black-robed old man obstructed the Nangong brothers’ way. He hovered in the air and looked down at both of them as he said in disdain, “Do you really think you can escape from me?”
The Nangong brothers’ expression changed when they saw the black-robed old man appearing before them.
At the same time, a hint of despair could be seen on their faces.
They had been running for days, would they really not be able to escape today?
At the moment when the Nangong brothers resigned themselves to face death, a wind-like silhouette flashed and appeared before the Nangong brothers. The silhouette stood calmly facing the black-robed old man, eye-to-eye.
“Duan Ling Tian?” The Nangong brothers were stunned when they saw the purple-clad young man’s sudden appearance.
They did not expect Duan Ling Tian would come after them.
He had to know that he might get dragged into the danger they were in.
“They’re useful to me, you… get out of here,” Duan Ling Tian said. The tone of his voice was calm and brooked no argument.
“Brat, I spared your life earlier… Since you’re so ungrateful, I’ll take your worthless life now!” The black-robed old man was a little surprised to see Duan Ling Tian’s appearance. However, he quickly decided to kill Duan Ling Tian.
“Wait!” Nangong Yi stopped the black-robed old man when he was getting ready to attack. “This is between us. It has nothing to do with him.”
“Go.” Nangong Chen was even more straightforward as he flew and stood before Duan Ling Tian. He shielded Duan Ling Tian behind him and asked Duan Ling Tian to leave.
The brothers did not want to drag Duan Ling Tian into their personal matter.
Naturally, this was because they were unaware of Duan Ling Tian’s current ability.
