In the crystal array formation inside the Ancient Cang’e Tree, Xiao Shi’s figure appeared out of thin air. He was still holding Luo Jun. However, Luo Jun had already fallen unconscious.
Xiao Shi casually threw him aside. He walked straight to the black coffin in the crystal array formation that was nurtured by the array formation with a deep gaze. “Since you’re already awake, it’s time for us to talk.” He stared at the black coffin in front of him.
In fact, he had already sensed that the black coffin had already become different after devouring the petrified heart and Yin flames. If the black coffin from before was a dead thing, then, it was equivalent to living now.
However, this “living” aura was still very weak. Xiao Shi could not be sure if it had already regained its consciousness until this operation.
When Xiao Shi used the Ancient Cang’e Tree’s ability, he clearly felt that the Ancient Cang’e Tree’s ability had increased greatly.
According to Xiao Shi’s understanding of the Ancient Cang’e Tree, the Ancient Cang’e Tree was still in a weak state. Logically speaking, its ability could not reach this level. In addition, when Xiao Shi used the Ancient Cang’e Tree’s ability, he vaguely felt a trace of the black coffin’s aura.
Although this aura was extremely weak, he still clearly sensed it. This made him realize that the reason why the Ancient Cang’e Tree could unleash such a powerful ability this time was because the black coffin was secretly helping it.
Although Xiao Shi could determine that the existence in the black coffin had not been revived, Xiao Shi felt that he had to have a good talk with it since it was already conscious.
As Xiao Shi’s words spread, a wisp of black smoke suddenly rose from the black coffin.
This wisp of black smoke floated above the coffin with a mental fluctuation.
Although the existence in the coffin already had some consciousness, its consciousness was still in a very weak state, so it could not speak.
This made Xiao Shi frown. If the other party could not speak, he would not be able to communicate with it.
“You can’t talk?” Xiao Shi asked.
The black smoke swayed. Suddenly, it stared at Luo Jun, who was not far away. It instantly floated towards Luo Jun and seeped into his body. Luo Jun, who was originally unconscious, suddenly trembled. His eyelashes trembled and he opened his eyes. His eyes turned dark, as deep as an abyss. His eyes seemed a little empty and dull. His neck twisted stiffly bit by bit as he turned around and stared at Xiao Shi.
An emotionless voice sounded. “What do you want to know?”
Xiao Shi narrowed his eyes. He knew that the person talking to him was no longer Luo Jun, but the existence in the black coffin. “Who… are you?”
Xiao Shi first asked the question he was most curious about. The first time he came into contact with the black coffin was when he first came here and saw the black coffin nurtured by the Ancient Cang’e Tree’s crystal array formation.
That was when he knew the reason why the Ancient Cang’e Tree existed was to nurture this black coffin. However, Xiao Shi had never known who the existence in the coffin was. Now that the other party had intelligence, he felt that the first thing he had to figure out was the other party’s identity.
Regarding Xiao Shi’s question, “Luo Jun” fell into deep thought. After some thought, he shook his head. “1 don’t remember.”
“You don’t remember?” Xiao Shi was stunned. What was going on?
Luo Jun said, “My memories and mind are incomplete. I have to use this body to talk to you. 1 can’t remember who I am.”
Incomplete mind and memories? Xiao Shi frowned slightly. This way, the information he wanted to know was limited.
“You were the one who helped me before, right?” Xiao Shi asked. He was referring to the Ancient Cang’e Tree’s ability.
Luo Jun nodded and said, “Yes, with the Ancient Cang’e Tree’s current state, you can’t use many of its abilities, but I can.”
As expected! Xiao Shi was enlightened. “You helped me because our fates were already connected when 1 accommodated you into my body?” He continued to ask.
“You can say that, but you’re wrong about one thing. It’s not that you accommodated me into your body, but that 1… chose you!”
Xiao Shi’s heart skipped a beat. There was a huge difference. He clearly remembered back then, he had fused this coffin into his body through the Red Tiger Totem. Be it the Red Tiger Totem or the status of this coffin, he did not know very well. He had always thought that he had used the Red Tiger Totem to accommodate this coffin.
Only now did he know that this was actually the coffin’s choice. If it was unwilling, the Red Tiger Totem alone would definitely not be enough to accommodate it. After all, the difference in level between the two was huge.
“Why did you choose me?” Xiao Shi asked seriously.
“Because I can sense an aura from you that can revive me.” Luo Jun answered seriously.
“Hiss…” Xiao Shi took a deep breath. Could it be that the Red Tiger Totem could revive the existence in the coffin?
No! With the Red Tiger Totem’s status, it was definitely not enough.
“What can revive it is definitely not the Red Tiger Totem, but something higher than the Red Tiger Totem. Looks like this is related to the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect behind the Red Tiger Totem again. This Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect… is not simple!” Xiao Shi’s heart stirred as he suddenly asked. “Do you know the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect?”
“I might know, but I can’t remember now.” Luo Jun shook his head.
Xiao Shi was deep in thought. From the severely damaged mind and memories of the other party, it was very difficult to obtain some advanced information from him.
“Apart from the Ancient Cang’e Tree’s ability, what else can you help me with now?” Xiao Shi changed the question. With the status of this black coffin, although it only had a trace of incomplete consciousness, if it had other abilities, it would definitely be able to increase his strength.
“I can help you read the memories of this body. Even if it’s the deepest secret he hides, 1 can read it.” Luo Jun said.
Xiao Shi’s eyes lit up. This ability was exactly what he needed at the moment! The reason why he did not kill Luo Jun was because he wanted to interrogate him about the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect.
He had already vaguely guessed that the reason why Luo Jun had brought them from the Seven Star Province to the Tiandou Province was very likely related to the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect.
However, this kind of interrogation was not reliable. The other party might not tell the truth. It could also be a half-truth. Or perhaps he was hiding something. Since the black coffin could read the memories, he was not afraid that the other party would not reveal the truth.
“Very good. Help me read his memories now.” Xiao Shi said impatiently.
In an instant, the darkness in Luo Jun’s eyes sank. His pupils returned to their original state. He seemed to have entered a state of reminiscence as he recounted everything that had happened in his memories.
“Can you make him recall things related to our Red Tiger Sect?” Xiao Shi asked.
Luo Jun paused. He immediately began to recall the information related to the Red Tiger Sect. Everything was as Xiao Shi had guessed.
The reason why he brought the Red Tiger Sect from the Seven Star Province to the Tiandou Province was because he suspected that the Red Tiger Sect was a branch of the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect.
And he had come to Tree Shadow City this time to verify it. After talking about the Red Tiger Sect, he naturally began to talk about the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect that was related to it.
“The Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect was the divine sect that protected the Great Wu Empire back then. After the imperial power of the Great Wu Empire collapsed, the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect also disappeared from the Tianwu Continent.
“After the Sect Master of the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect, who was also the Imperial Preceptor of the Great Wu Empire back then, died, the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect began to be dealt with. The Four Symbols Protectors were destroyed one after another.
“Although the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect has been destroyed and no longer exists, there has always been an extremely important secret hidden in the Four Symbols Divine Martial Sect..”
