James just jumped across a distance of several meters with ease.
Thea looked at James in astonishment.
James said with a smile, “I told you I’m a martial artist, and so are you. You used to be incredibly strong and were considered one of the strongest people in the world…”
Despite James mentioning these things before, Thea still had no clue what he was talking about.
Thea looked at James and asked out of curiosity, “Am I really a martial artist too?”
“Of course” James could not help but hold her hand.
Thea immediately pulled her hand back.
James said with a smile, “I’ve already found a way to restore your memories.”
“Oh, really?” Thea looked at him in doubt.
James nodded and said, “Yeah. As long as you recover your strength, your memories will be restored. Your cultivation base has been integrated into your blood. If you unleash it from your blood, you can restore your memories. However, I recommend you not to do it because you’ll only have a few years to live if you recover your memories.”
After explaining. James took a deep breath.
“I believe that you decided to convert your True Energy a year ago after careful consideration because you wanted to live. You must’ve also been aware of the possibility of losing your memories… I’m going to head abroad to visit the Blood Race. They’re closely related to dragons. You can survive after recovering your strength if we can slaughter the dragon and acquire its blood. I’ll definitely slay the dragon.”
Thea was thrilled in her heart to hear James’ affectionate words.
“Alright, it’s already late. You should head to bed, I’ll also return to my room to sleep.”
“Okay” James nodded and immediately leaped back to the balcony outside his room.
Thea had already gotten used to it. She smiled at James and turned back into her room.
As soon as Thea entered her room, a figure quickly flew over from a distance.
“Haha, James. Long time no see!”
The person that approached looked to be in his forties. He was dressed in a suit, had short hair, and looked very energetic.
“Callan…” James smiled upon seeing the person that appeared on his balcony.
“You brat! You disappeared for one whole year. I was worried to death about you for the past year!”
James said helplessly. “I couldn’t help it either. Thea suddenly vanished a year ago, and I searched every corner of the earth to find her. Thank you for secretly protecting her for the last month.”
Callan gently waved his hand and said, “It wasn’t a big deal. Plus, Thea will be safe even without my protection. You’re the strongest man in Sol right now. No one will dare to cause her any trouble. Otherwise, they’ll be digging their own graves.”
James sighed. “What’s the use of being strong if I can’t even save the woman I love?”
Hearing this, Callan’s expression became solemn.
He asked, “I was wondering if you knew about something.”
James looked at him and asked, “Hmm? What is it?”
Callan said. “In the past month, there’s been a lot of news about dragons and the Blood Race’s origins. It seems the ancestor of the Blood Race was part of the dragon slayers. He was lucky and obtained some of the dragon’s blood, which created the Blood Race… It’s rumored the dragon’s blood can grant one immortality. There are also talks about an immortal in the Blood Race that has roamed the earth since thousands of years ago. Some of his descendants have also lived hundreds of years because they inherited the gene.”
James had heard about some of these things long ago. However, he only knew that some members of the Blood Race had lived for hundreds of years. He had no idea there was an immortal among them.
“Callan, who did you get this news from?”
Callan replied. “I’m unaware of who spread the news. I simply acquired the information from the Gu Sect’s intelligence network. I really hope it’s fake news. Otherwise, the Blood Race would be a terrifying existence. I can’t imagine how strong one would be after having lived and cultivated for more than thousands of years.”
Callan did not dare to think about it.
James suddenly recalled something and said, “By the way, I’m planning to pay the Blood Race a visit very soon.”
“What?” Callan’s expression changed, and he exclaimed, “James, what’re you thinking, going there at such a time?”
James said. “I made a deal with Sky a year ago.”
He explained his agreement with Sky.
Hearing this, Callan fell into deep thought.
After a while, he said, “I’m also curious to find out if the Blood Race is really as the myths say. When will you leave? Shall I come with you?”
