Chapter 2768: In No Position to Enjoy
With his hand held by Feng Xue, Jian Chen felt slightly uncomfortable, because he was not Kun Tian, but Jian Chen. No matter what Kun Tian and Feng Xue’s relationship was or how close they were to one another, none of it had anything to do with him.
Yet, it just happened to be inappropriate for Jian Chen to object or put up any resistance, because Feng Xue held his hand easily and naturally. Clearly, this was not the first time and it also meant she was extremely familiar with Kun Tian. If he behaved a little too eccentrically, it would only make Feng Xue suspicious of him.
As a result, even though Jian Chen was conflicted inside, he could only allow Feng Xue to make close contact and hold his hand.
The two of them moved extremely quickly. They flew over countless rivers and mountains, before finally stopping deep within a mountain range over twenty million kilometers from the capital city.
In the very centre of the mountain range was a basin. It was surrounded by a chain of towering mountains, while in the centre of the basin was a huge lake.
Feng Xue brought Jian Chen to the edge of the lake. Only then did she finally let go of his hand. She faced Jian Chen, staring at him nervously and slightly eagerly with her beautiful eyes. She asked, “Kun Tian, take a good look at this place. Look at the surroundings, look at the tranquil mountain and look at this lake. Do you find it familiar?”
“Do you feel a sense of familiarity?”
“Think carefully. Do your best to recall the past. You often came here in the past. I would be by your side every time.”
“Think about it. Did you ever say this in the past? You said this was the most beautiful place to you, and that you would never forget about everything that had happened here.”
“Kun Tian, think about it. Think carefully.”
Towards the end, Feng Xue became more and more agitated. She grabbed Jian Chen by his shoulders, shaking him vigorously. She became rather sad.
Jian Chen said nothing. Instead, he glanced around at the surroundings as if he was in thought. He would momentarily stop on every part of the scenery, while his expression would constantly change too. He would furrow his brows in thought at times, while appearing confused at others. He seemed to be doing his best to recall the past.
Feng Xue said nothing more. All she did was look at ‘Kun Tian’ eagerly and nervously, as if she was giving time for ‘Kun Tian’ to remember the past.
Jian Chen spent over half a minute doing his best to ‘recall the past’, but his eyes remained lost in the end. He shook his head, “I still can’t remember anything at all. I have a feeling that I once knew this place, but I really can’t remember anything.”
“A feeling that you once knew this place?” Feng Xue murmured softly as her eyes lit up slightly. Afterwards, she seemed to think of something and she became embarrassed. After a moment of hesitation, she made up her mind and determination flooded her eyes.
In the next moment, Feng Xue’s clothes slid off her quietly, revealing her smooth body. She leapt into the water gently and swam around happily like a mermaid.
“Kun Tian, come. Come down in the water. Didn’t you like this the most?” Feng Xue waved her hand at Jian Chen. Her voice changed as well. It became gentler, filled with charm.
“Kun Tian, what’re you staring for? Hurry up and come in and play,” Feng Xue continued. Her voice was soft and her face was flushed. She was charming.
Jian Chen stared at Feng Xue in a daze. Who knew how troubled he felt inside in that very moment.
He had never thought he would see something like this. Kun Tian and Feng Xue’s relationship had actually developed into something like this already. He immediately felt rather regretful. He should not have come here with Feng Xue.
Moreover, he understood that he could successfully go all the way with the tenth hall master if he wanted to.
However, he would never do something like that.
“Sigh, why are you standing there like a log? You loved this place the most in the past.” As she said that, Feng Xue suddenly pointed a moist finger at Jian Chen. Immediately, a red ribbon appeared out of nowhere and wrapped around Jian Chen’s wrist.
Just when Feng Xue wanted to drag Jian Chen into the water, she never expected him to suddenly pale. A thin layer of perspiration immediately covered his forehead as he emitted a painful groan. He fell to the ground and rolled around while clutching his head.
Clearly, Feng Xue had not anticipated something like this. As she watched ‘Kun Tian’ roll around painfully, she was clearly stunned. She could no longer be bothered with trying to stimulate back Kun Tian’s memories anymore. She removed the ribbon with a flip of her hand and she flew out of the lake, creating a great splash in the process.
“Kun Tian, what’s wrong?”
The clothes on the grass rose up automatically, covering up Feng Xue in a single instant. She arrived before Kun Tian, panicking.
“My head! My head! It hurts! It hurts so much!” Jian Chen clutched his head firmly. His face was completely sheet-white while the muscles on his face twisted. He seemed to be in great agony.
“Oh no. I must have accidentally set off the wounds to your soul when I tried to stimulate your memories.” Feng Xue was immediately left at a loss as to what to do. Even in the Saints’ World that was filled with powerful experts, injuries to the soul were extremely difficult to deal with, so let alone the Darkstar World.
“Kun Tian, is there anyway I can help you? I’ve specially collected some pills here. They’re all helpful to the soul. You should eat them.” Feng Xue took out over a dozen bottles from her Space Ring in a rather frantic manner and poured out a few aromatic pills, feeding them all into Jian Chen’s mouth like jellybeans.
Perhaps it was due to the pills, but Jian Chen’s pain visibly decreased soon after ingesting them. His pale face gradually recovered some colour too.
“Kun Tian, what’s wrong? Do you feel a little better?” Feng Xue asked in concern.
Only after almost a minute did Jian Chen finally calm down. However, this had clearly caused him quite the damage. Although the pain had receded, his mind was clearly greatly exhausted. He was haggard.
He sat on the ground and took in a few deep breaths, before slowing standing up. He said weakly, “I’m fine, I’m fine now. I- it’s just that the power of my soul has been severely drained. I- I need to return immediately to recover.”
“Kun Tian, then- then have you remembered something?” Feng Xue asked eagerly.
“No, I still don’t remember anything. Apart from that sense of familiarity, I can’t remember anything at all. I- I need to go back.” With that, Jian Chen gave Feng Xue no time to ask anymore questions. He took off in the air as he tottered about. He seemed like he could fall out of the sky at any time.
