After returning from the Nanyin Demon Continent, Wu Yu had thought that he would never meet her again.
He did not expect for her to appear and haunt him again during the 10,000 Kingdoms Pilgrimage.
Most importantly, Wu Yu did not want to fight her.
However, at the second level of the Ancient Soul Tower, as she was outnumbered and overpowered, she had not dared to ambush him openly. Instead, she secretly awakened that Spirit of the Universe rock tortoise, causing Wu Yu's group great trouble.
As for the Yan Huang Golden Bead that was on the rock tortoise, she had not expected it to appear there. The Golden Bead was there coincidentally and not as a result of her “good” intention.
At that time, Wu Yu was furious and decided that he would take revenge.
Today, he saw that she was practically alone. This was the one and only chance to teach her a lesson. Of course, Wu Yu would not miss this opportunity.
Everyone treated her as Princess Phoenix Dawn, but in Wu Yu's eyes, whether she remembered it or not, she was still Nangong Wei. Wu Yu could even recall how she looked when she was a child, and naturally he would not be so polite with her.
The terrain of the fifth level of the Ancient Soul Tower was very complex. There were mountains and deep magma rivers everywhere. It was also very dark. There were many caves scattered all over these scorched lands. Wu Yu hid in one of them. The Eight Pupils Bull Demon King, who had panicked and chased after them, had long lost track of Wu Yu.
Before hiding, Wu Yu transformed the Imperial Insignia into the Tortoise Shield Dragon Boat. This seraphic dao treasure sealed up the cave completely, trapping both him and Nangong Wei in it. There was no way for Nangong Wei to escape or call for help, no matter how loud she was.
The Tortoise Shield Dragon Boat drilled deep into the ground. It was a little cooler here in the cave than outside.
In this darkness, Wu Yu did not control her. Nangong Wei was able to move freely, but she could not leave the small, enclosed area.
When she became Princess Phoenix Dawn, she seemed to have become arrogant as well. At this moment, she was very angry. She glared at Wu Yu with her big eyes, showing a rather domineering aura. She warned Wu Yu in a low voice, "Wu Yu, you are really audacious! You dare to kidnap me and trap me here? What do you want to do!?"
She was always so hot-tempered.
Wu Yu crossed his arms. He would not be frightened by her. Everyone outside was in a stalemate. No one had any way of obtaining the Golden Bead. Hence, he was not worried. He looked at the woman in front of him coldly.
His memories were filled with her appearance when they were in Shushan. To be honest, even though she was becoming more and more beautiful, it was hard for Wu Yu to find that precious memory of her in the Nangong Wei now.
All he had with her now were conflicts and disputes.
The memories were beautiful. The pure love they had for each other would always be very wonderful, but now, as they stood before each other, they were no longer their past selves.
"Wu Yu! If you are sensible, you will let me go!" Nangong Wei had a hot temper. She yelled at Wu Yu again and looked like she was about to explode.
Even as she raged, Wu Yu continued to stand there with his arms crossed and stared at her. His gaze probably made her feel empty.
Actually, Wu Yu felt like something was wrong, but he did not know what it was. This made him doubtful.
Wu Yu always believed that everyone had to respect their own desires and feelings. He wanted to teach Nangong Wei a lesson right now. Hence, he had trapped her here. He was not thinking rationally at all.
"You are really clueless!" Nangong Wei saw that he did not respond. Her pretty face scowled in fury.
In the past, Wu Yu thought that she was cute when she got angry. However, now he just wanted to slap her.
But Nangong Wei attacked first. She took out several kinds of advanced dao treasures. The Phoenix Supreme had probably given her these treasures. Then Nangong Wei activated the spirit designs and attacked Wu Yu. It was not easy to display her full power within the narrow space of the Tortoise Shield Dragon Boat, but she could exert most of it.
Basically, her attacks were equivalent to the offensive power of a second tier Dao Querying cultivator. She had also made great progress, which was amazing. The Phoenix Supreme had definitely spent a lot of effort on her.
However, Wu Yu sneered when facing such attacks. When Nangong Wei was attacking him crazily, he did not move. He dissolved her attacks easily just by using his bare hands. Nangong Wei attacked with her sword, but Wu Yu grabbed it with his bare hands. Then he put it inside the Floating Dreams Pagoda. In the blink of an eye, all her advanced dao treasures were in Wu Yu's possession. In this fight, Wu Yu's speed was rapid, his strength was violent, and his skin and flesh were tough. His warrior-like fighting style had shattered Nangong Wei's confidence.
At the end of the battle, Nangong Wei realized that in front of Wu Yu, she was as weak as a little bunny.
Her expression changed. She retreated and leaned against the wall of the Tortoise Shield Dragon Boat. She was in a daze and her eyes were filled with astonishment. She stared at Wu Yu and mumbled, "You…. How did you become so powerful? I remember that you weren't like this last time…."
She felt like she was facing a demon king. Just then, she remembered that Wu Yu had defeated the Eight Pupils Bull Demon King easily!
She looked a little desperate now, as if there was great turbulence in her heart.
Wu Yu approached her and said, "What's so strange about this? Last time I surpassed you, you didn't look like this. Oh, you have already forgotten. That was when we were at the Shushan Immortal Sect in the Dong Sheng Divine Continent."
This time, Wu Yu had surpassed her by a lot again, even though she had managed to undergo a transformation and received an identity that the whole world envied.
However, a beauty was a beauty. Even when she was in panic, disbelief, or pain, she still looked so beautiful. The identity of an Immortal Phoenix had really increased her beauty by multiple folds. To be honest, if Wu Yu looked at her any longer, he could not bear to torture her anymore.
"Dong Sheng Divine Continent...." Nangong Wei took a deep breath. She smiled coldly, as if she had calmed down from her shock. She slowly raised her head, looked at Wu Yu, and said, "I've already said that I'm Princess Phoenix Dawn, not the Nangong Wei of your memories! I have no relationship with you. If you mention the Dong Sheng Divine Continent again, believe it or not, I will destroy the whole Dong Sheng Divine Continent! "
She looked a little hysterical when she shouted the last sentence.
However, Wu Yu was also angered. He shook his head and said, "I’m really disappointed by your words. You were a little wilful before, but you were kind. Take a look at yourself now. Forget it. Anyway, you can't remember. You now have another life, I'm not qualified to comment on your life. You should live your life well. Don’t mind my words today. In the future, you can forget about the Dong Sheng Divine Continent. I'm afraid that you'll disturb the peace there."
Wu Yu seldom got angry, but when facing her, he would always get angry. Ultimately, deep in his heart, he still wanted Nangong Wei to recover her memories and not let the Phoenix Supreme control her. However, the key was that Nangong Wei did not feel the same way. Now she held only hatred towards Wu Yu.
After listening, Nangong Wei sneered and said, "It's too late. Do you think I'll forget just because you told me to forget about it? Since you've kidnapped me today, I really want to go to the Dong Sheng Divine Continent now. I'll go to the Shushan Immortal Sect that you mentioned. I heard that this continent is a barren piece of land. The martial cultivators there are very weak and that even Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivators can dominate that continent. So shall you wait here in the Yan Huang Ancient Country for me to bring the heads of everyone in the whole Shushan Immortal Sect to you? I'd like to see if my father is really among them."
Wu Yu narrowed his eyes and looked at her coldly. He said, "Do you really want to act so wilfully? I have no reason to make up such an identity for you. If you do that, you will be killing your father, your relatives, your brothers and sisters. In the future, if you regain your memories, you will experience the biggest pain in the world and realize what true despair and regret mean!"
Nangong Wei laughed heartily and said, "Are you afraid? You have your relatives and friends there, right? You are the one who caused their deaths! What makes you think that I'm a three-year-old kid who will fall for your lies easily? Who do you think you are? What qualifications do you have to reprimand me? I don't know your motives, but let me tell you, if you don't let me go, I will make you regret it. No, you have already offended me. Even if you let me go, I will make you regret it! Wu Yu, I want you to know that I… am not someone you can provoke!"
When she reached her last sentence, she obviously stuttered. Hence, her last words were weak.
But even then, Wu Yu was furious. To tell the truth, if he did not really care about those people, he would not be so angry. Now Nangong Wei looked just like a rebellious brat, arrogant and overbearing. Even though she looked beautiful, she was unbridled and ugly.
Wu Yu's hand clamped around her neck. He only needed a bit of strength to throw her onto the boat’s wall. If he did that, her body might shatter. With Wu Yu's current physical strength, Nangong Wei could not move at all when he held her down in this small space.
At this moment, their faces were a mere palm's distance apart. Wu Yu's hand was forceful and squeezed Nangong Wei until her face paled.
"Do you believe that I can twist your neck right now?" Fury exploded in his chest and travelled upwards. If not for Wu Yu's effort to suppress his rage, he might really have already killed her in anger.
Nangong Wei's face was pale and she could not catch her breath. However, she refused to show weakness. She gasped hysterically, "You can twist my neck, if you dare, and you can kill me. Then you can wait to see if my mother will tear you apart and destroy everything that you have. She will destroy your precious Dong Sheng Divine Continent and annihilate all life there!"
After she uttered these words, Wu Yu forcefully shut her up. At this moment, Wu Yu's killing intent was so strong that it oozed out of his pores. Nangong Wei realized that he might really just kill her there and then. Letting her common sense get the better of her, she shut her mouth and glared at Wu Yu furiously.
Wu Yu had wanted to kill her.
However, he did not do so in the end, not because of her threats, but because Wu Yu could not bear to kill her.
He stared coldly at her for some time as his mind went back to the time they separated atop that cold, chilly mountain. He hated and was disgusted at the fact that he felt joy in leaving her behind as he grew stronger.
Now that he was older and more time had passed, it seemed even more difficult to forget his youthful days.
When he was about to kill her, memories kept flashing through his mind. That snowy day when she shyly gifted him the Nine-Directional Demon Imprisonment Column….Previous Chapter Next Chapter
Ohhh someone touched Wu Yu's reverse scale! Wu Yu is truly a man of deep emotions and relationships. But how will he react when faced with a phantom of the past?
