258 - The Terms Need Revision, I Think (5)
However, the memories in Ye Mo’s head remained elusive as a butterfly in a dream. Things that mattered to him, people that were important to his life, none of their images stayed in his mind. Something was urging him to let it go, to simply embrace the nothingness, but at the same time, he felt that he should resist that urge.
‘If I let go…it will really be gone.’
It was a strange thought, but he trusted his intuition. Ye Mo felt that as long as he gave it his all, he could remember the things he had forgotten. It would be slow, but it would work if he tried hard enough.
So he stopped walking.
He sat down cross-legged amidst the inky black darkness and waited.<
259 - Even if the Mind Forgets, the Soul Remembers (1)‘Where…?’At first, Ye Mo was slowly walking as he tried to figure out where the voice came from. It did not take long for those steps to quicken, and soon, he was running.“Is anyone there? Can you hear me?” he called out, but there was no response. He tried to focus on his hearing, but aside from the sounds that his body was making, there were no other noises.It was as if the voice he heard a while ago was all a figment of his imagination.‘No! I clearly heard it!’He swore that he heard another voice. It wasn’t a man’s voice, but rather, a little girl’s.
260 – Even if the Mind Forgets, the Soul Remembers (2)“Where the hell am---"Slash!Feeling the sharp wind headed his way, Ye Mo did not even had time to flinch as he rolled out of its path on instinct. Bloody mud covered his body, but he paid that no attention as he grabbed the weapon nearest him—a sword with a broken blade---probably a remnant of one of the fallen soldiers on the battlefield.“Eurachaaaaa!” he heard someone bellow furiously, and he felt another attack coming towards his back.Behind Ye Mo stood a warrior that looked way too large and hairy to be considered human, rock hard muscles bulging underneath its soft leather armor.Ye Mo’s body moved on its own, perfectly receiving the enemy’s sword as he parried the attack. He was bewildered by what was happening, but he wasn’t in a good position to worry about useless thoughts when his life could be r
261 – Even if the Mind Forgets, the Soul Remembers (3)A fair-skinned human girl no taller than the height of his waist, wearing a satin robe that was neither stained by blood or mud. Big eyes on a small face, perfectly arranged black hair in a style of braided bun, delicately balanced features that indicated she would surely grow into a gorgeous young lady given a few years.Her adorable appearance made one have an urge to pinch her chubby cheeks, and if there were any females around, Ye Mo felt that they would fawn over how the little girl looked like a beautiful living, breathing doll.‘And it’s not a sight that should be seen in the middle of a battlefield.’Ye Mo tried to open his mouth to say something, but he remained unable to utter even a s
262 – Even if the Mind Forgets, the Soul Remembers (4)The moment her fingertips touched him, it felt as if an invisible chain shackling Ye Mo’s memories shattered into pieces.At first, he was ecstatic to know that his memories would be returning to him, and he would be able to understand his situation better. However, it was as if a man expecting to receive a spark of flame enough to light a candle suddenly found a fire so large and dangerous his entire house was covered in flames before he knew it.Hundreds of unfamiliar distorted images flooded inside his brain, some seemingly his own, of a young genius swordsman from a fallen clan, while other fragmented memories belonged to dozens of other people—an old senile man, a pregnant peasant, a silversmith, a one-armed spearsman, a scholar, a waitress,
263 – Even if the Mind Forgets, the Soul Remembers (5)‘I died?’Ye Mo tried to remember the last thing that happened to him, but only fragmented pieces of images appeared in his mind. Confusion was the only thing he could feel aside from the head-splitting pain, though he was trying to calm himself and follow the words of the little girl to embrace his memories.‘Since I died, shouldn’t I undergo samsara? Why am I seeing the memories of my former reincarnations?’What happened to him before he appeared and walked around that endless darkness?No, wait, what was he doing before the little girl appeared?He was swinging his sword against—The little girl frowned when she saw the images swimming inside his mind.“Outers.”Gaaaasp!She reached out her small chubby hands and touched the crown of his head, and she channeled her spiritual energy inside his body, focusing it on erasing those images that did not belong to him or to this era.“You are in so much pain because you took a peek at
264 - The Girl Who Cannot be Remembered (1) “Uncle, are you all right?” It was Ye Hua who first noticed that Ye Mo was acting strange. The man’s eyes were looking at the people in the room as if they were people he had not seen for a long time. There was recognition in his gaze, as well as a kind of dissonance. “Huh? Yeah…yeah…” After staying unconscious for days and almost crossing the fine line of life and death, it was reasonable for Ye Mo to be in a daze, and everyone thought so as well. But Ye Hua’s intuition was telling him that his uncle was not just confused, but actually not in a normal state of mind. However, he decided to stay quiet. Because he felt that Little Yin had something to do with this. The young man’s eyes glanced in the direction of the little girl, who brought them all towards the room saying that Ye Mo should be waking up soon. Ye Hua remembered that incident several days ago, that eerie darkness that made his soul tremble. A power that could oppose n
265 - The Girl Who Cannot be Remembered (2)“This body is truly inconvenient.”Little Yin sighed as she sat on the eaves of the roof, looking like a tomboy leisurely camping when in fact she’s trying to reconstruct her soul with the help of moonlight.At first, she thought of leaving the Ye Clan while Ye Mo was unconscious. She felt like staying would give her a huge headache, but she was tied up by all the connections she made in this city.The Qing Blessed Lands had officially entered the state of war.Though communication was crippled, Little Yin was able to overhear the intelligence gathered by the hidden experts brought by the Purple Plumed General.Immortal Wuwei’s timely arrival managed to save Ye Sect and the entire Leaf City, but that wasn’t the same with the other cities. Even the news about the situation in the imperial capital could not be found.That little pretty boy, Qing Wu You, wanted to return to check on his family. Just last night, he came to visit her, asking if i
