Chapter 1273: The Irritating Flies
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
At that very moment, both Li Fei or Ke’er experienced a complete change in mood from one end of the spectrum to the other.
The change was like rising from hell to heaven!
Their man did not forget about them. Instead, he had suffered amnesia!
“Rascal, how did you lose your memory?”
“Young Master, what exactly happened?” Li Fei and Ke’er asked with apprehension while looking at Duan Ling Tian.
When they found out their man had not intentionally forgotten about them, the gloom in their eyes faded away, leaving only concern.
Gazing at the two ladies who were looking at him with concern, the way Duan Ling Tian’s heart thundered was getting more and more intense.
He could tell that the two ladies whom he felt familiar were sincerely worried about him. Their feelings were real and they were not faking it.
“I used to have… friends like them?” Duan Ling Tian was eager to recover that part of his memory the second he looked at them.
Although he had a huge chunk of his memory restored, he had yet to recover the most important part.
One of them included these two ladies who seemed to have an extraordinary relationship with him.
“Could you tell me what kind of relationship did we share? I feel that both of you seem very familiar and close to me… It’s like the both of you are my family,” Duan Ling Tian stared at Li Fei and Ke’er attentively and asked softly.
Even Duan Ling Tian did not realize that his tone had mellowed. Now that he was speaking, his eyes were gentle like flowing water.
“We… We’re your fiancées,” Li Fei looked at Duan Ling Tian with fondness and anticipation, eager to see if her reminder could make him recall his memory.
Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
The people who were watching gasped.
“These two remarkable ladies are his fiancées?”
“That’s not fair!”
“It’s the first time seeing such a beauty in my entire life. Even better that there are two of them… But both of them are his fiancées?”
“If I could replace him, I’d be willing to be him even if I’m dying a month later.”
The onlooking men gawked at Duan Ling Tian with envy and jealousy. They were eager to replace him.
“So, he’s… fiancé to Junior Sister Li and Junior Sister Ke’er?” Xu Rong stood nearby and ogled Duan Ling Tian without blinking. To be exact, she was looking at Duan Ling Tian’s back as she experienced a stir of emotions.
From her knowledge, her master Martial Emperor You Han had taken Li Fei and Ke’er in as her direct disciples for their fiancé’s sake.
Naturally, she had no idea what her master was up to. However, she figured that her master might want something from their fiancé.
She could not figure out any other reason apart from that.
It took Duan Ling Tian a while to snap back to his senses. He only asked after inhaling a deep breath in, “The both of you… are my fiancées?”
Although he believed what Li Fei said, he wanted to be absolutely sure of this shocking piece of information.
So, he already had a fiancée, and not only one, but two.
“Yes.” Li Fei nodded. Her expression remained the same even though she had just admitted herself to be Duan Ling Tian’s fiancée while many people watched. It was as if those people were invisible to her.
However, Ke’er was much more bashful than her. Her cheeks flushed like they were going to drip with blood.
Duan Ling Tian had no idea what to say after hearing Li Fei’s affirmation.
Although he had found out the two ladies before him were his fiancées, he could not recall anything about them at all.
All he felt at that moment was that the two ladies were very familiar and intimate to him.
He completely could not recall what they had gone through together.
Duan Ling Tian looked around and felt uneasy being watched like they were monkeys in a performance. He said to Li Fei and Ke’er in an instant, “Let’s find somewhere to sit down so the both of you can tell me more about our past. Let’s see if I can recall anything.”
“I’ve got many things to ask you too,” Li Fei agreed immediately.
Although Ke’er did not speak, she nodded obediently. Being the woman that she was, she listened and obeyed whatever Duan Ling Tian said.
Years had passed and although both Li Fei and Ke’er had drastic changes in their abilities, they had not changed at all when it came to the fondness they had for Duan Ling Tian.
He was the man that they committed their lives to. He was the only man they ever wanted.
“Junior Sister Li, Junior Sister Ke’er… So, this is the fiancé the both of you have always talked about?” A voice spoke up suddenly. Duan Ling Tian, Li Fei, and Ke’er, who were ready to leave, stopped moving and looked at the person who had stood up to speak.
“Senior Sister Xu,” Li Fei and Ke’er immediately greeted the person who stood out.
Duan Ling Tian looked closely and noticed that it was a lady in azure. She was the third silhouette who had stood with Li Fei and Ke’er outside the Hidden Fog City when he had seen them earlier.
“Rascal, this is Senior Sister Xu,” Li Fei introduced while looking at Duan Ling Tian.
“Senior Sister Xu.” Although Duan Ling Tian could not recall Li Fei and Ke’er from his past, since he had confirmed that the both of them were his fiancées, he did not dare to hesitate as he greeted their Senior Sister.
“I only know that you’re Junior Sister Li and Junior Sister Ke’er’s fiancé… May I know how should I address you?” Xu Rong questioned Duan Ling Tian while looking at him with a smile.
“You can call me Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian nodded at Xu Rong.
“Duan Ling Tian… I’ll remember that. But I heard from Junior Sister Li and Junior Sister Ke’er earlier that you should be at the Southern Outer Land on the Cloud Continent,” Xu Rong looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked curiously, “How come you’re here?”
“I’m here for the Hidden Fog Martial Competition,” Duan Ling Tian replied.
“I see.” Surprise flashed across Xu Rong’s eyes as she then asked, “Which Martial Emperor powerhouse from the Cloud Continent are you here with?”
“Martial Emperor Ling Xuan,” Duan Ling Tian replied.
Xu Rong nodded and turned to Li Fei and Ke’er after beaming at Duan Ling Tian. “Junior Sister Li, Junior Sister Ke’er… The both of you haven’t seen him for years. You guys should catch up.”
“I’ll let Master know,” Xu Rong said.
“Thank you, Senior Sister Xu.” Li Fei and Ke’er’s eyes lit up when they heard Xu Rong.
“Alright then… I won’t hold up your husband and wives’ catch-up. I’ll return to the southern island now.” Xu Rong then left after informing them.
Many of the onlookers whispered among themselves after Xu Rong left.
“So, they’re from the Cloud Continent.”
“They’re here for the Hidden Fog Martial Competition. They must be following some Martial Emperor or Demon Emperor powerhouses from the Cloud Continent.”
At that moment, many of them figured out Duan Ling Tian and the others’ identities.
“Rascal, let’s go,” Li Fei held Ke’er’s hand and said to Duan Ling Tian while looking at him. He nodded.
As the three of them were ready to leave, they were stopped by a scream.
“Hold it right there!” The scream was like a thunderstorm that came from above. Everyone snapped back to their senses one after another as they swiveled towards the source of the voice.
The scream was traced back to two middle-aged men who descended from the sky ferociously. It was obvious that they had ill intentions.
“Inner island disciples!” Many of them looked serious and fear was apparent in their eyes when they saw the identity token hanging on the waists of the two middle-aged men.
“It’s the both of you!” Li Fei raised her beautiful eyebrows, despise clearly written on her face as she looked at them.
“What do you guys want from us?” Ke’er looked a little horrified.
The two inner island disciples of Hidden Fog Island who had just appeared were the same duo who had been bothering Li Fei and Ke’er ever since they arrived on the island.
Both Ke’er or Li Fei hated the two inner island disciples from the bottom of their hearts.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian merely glanced at the two inner island disciples with grave coldness in his eyes. He did not seem to care about the two of them at all.
The inner island disciples landed close to Duan Ling Tian and the two ladies. They did not respond to Ke’er. Instead, they took a long, hard look at Duan Ling Tian. One of the men said ambiguously, “I was wondering why the Junior Sisters were so cold to us… So, they already have a fiancé!”
Another man looked at Duan Ling Tian and mocked with jealousy and hatred, “Both the Junior Sisters are beautiful and you certainly are drop-dead gorgeous. What did this boy toy do to deserve to be their fiancé?”
The two inner island disciples had been following them ever since Li Fei and Ke’er left the southern island.
However, they did not dare to get close to them since Xu Rong was there with them.
Nevertheless, never had they thought that they would witness such a scene which angered them on the Hidden Fog City streets not long after following the both of them into the city.
The two peerless beauties that they desired already had a fiancé! Moreover, their fiancé was one and the same.
They could no longer suppress their rage when they realized that the two ladies’ fiancé was just a boy toy. They brought their jealousy and hatred with them when they appeared.
Who did he think he was!?
He was just a boy toy who had above average looks, so how did he deserve these two peerless beauties?
They were unwilling to yield!
Furthermore, they felt gravely ashamed that the two beauties of their desires had chosen a boy toy like him over them.
The inner island disciple who spoke earlier glared at Duan Ling Tian in disdain. “Junior Sisters, let me tell you. Most of such boy toys are just nice to look at, but they’re useless. If you’re looking for a man, you should look for one who can protect you and provide you with a sense of security,” he reminded Li Fei and Ke’er while looking at them with ill intentions.
“Who do you think you are? What does our taste in man have anything to do with you?” Li Fei mocked.
At the same time, she took a step forward and stood next to Duan Ling Tian. She held his arm and leaned on his shoulder intimately.
