"Why don't you say it first?" While surprised, each took a step back, and their lines overlapped again.
Qu Lang covered his heart and felt the power of choking on dog food.
Looking at the two people next to him who couldn't help laughing at the same time, Qu Lang waved his hands sadly and chose to leave, "You two have something to say, I'll go first."
"Wait a minute," Xiao Yao turned around, not forgetting to continue to brutally exploit his single friends, "We have to find a place to talk about it...you too."
After a pause, Xiao Yao added, "By the way, you can help watch the door when necessary."
Qu Lang, "..."
Qu Lang, "I'm a very expensive door guard."
However, Xiao Yao had already turned around to talk to the old white dog, "Bai’ge, let's find a place first?"
Baiju nodded in agreement. Seeing that the defenses in the surrounding waters had not yet been laid out, he said, "Let's spread the defenses first, and then let's go back to the apartment and talk."
Although Haiyin Fort was relatively close, it was still a vampire's territory after all. What they wanted to talk about was important, so it was more appropriate to go back and talk about it.
Qu Lang had no problem with doing business, at least he could make a useful brick, and know where he needed to move, without having to constantly doubt that he had stealth skills.
In terms of formations, Baiju wasn’t a master, but even so, he had lived a long time and knew a lot. Even if he only knew a little about everything, it was enough for the modern times.
With the addition of Baiju, the work of expanding the sea and airspace defense saved a lot of effort. After about an hour, this part of the work had been completed.
When the old white dog thought about what he was going to talk about, he was still a little nervous for a while, and many thoughts turned around in his mind. The old white dog slapped his forehead as he remembered something that he had ignored, "Speaking of which, what about that vampire doctor? "
"He’s been on the island since noon." Xiao Yaohad just bought a bag of fruit on the side of the road, holding a cup of coconut juice in his hand, "I handed him over to Ji Yun and the others, and now he’s a 'guest' in Haiyin Fort. Our target hasn't shown up yet, and given no sign of showing up at the moment, but they shouldn't be later than tomorrow to avoid any problems with the large number of tourists on Thursday."
Baiju nodded, and after walking a short distance, he saw their holiday villa.
After entering the house they warded it, and even the little Chujiu diligently turned into a layer of enchantment to cover the outside.
Baiju and Xiao Yao sat down on the sofa next to each other, and the old white dog raised his hand and poured a glass of juice for all three of them, and finally spoke.
"Yao Yao, do you have any plans?" Baiju thought for a moment, and then confirmed the situation with Xiao Yao first, "I should be able to do something."
Xiao Yao nodded, glanced at Qu Lang, and said, "I just want to talk about... about my destiny."
The topic started, and smoothed out as it progressed.
Xiao Yao raised his hand and grabbed a handful of his own hair, leaned on the sofa as relaxed as possible, and slowly explained what he knew about his destiny.
Xiao Yao didn't know much about his own destiny.
Golden fortune, with too much gold, that it would suck life and luck, maybe even kill his whole family. When he was a two or three-year-old little dumpling, he had a bad impact on the family he was born in.
At that time, his master Qing Mozi seemed to feel something, and when he was traveling through the area, he felt a strange presence when passing by his house.
At that time, although Xiao Yao's family wasn’t considered ruined, the family fortune that should have been thriving was declining at an abnormal speed. Qing Mozi took Xiao Yao away and tried to weaken the connection between him and his family.
But the problem was that Qing Mozi still underestimated the domineering nature of Xiao Yao's fate. The spells he'd applied only ensured Xiao Yao a stable life for less than two years.
When Xiao Yao was about five years old, he sneaked down the mountain, and by chance, he met his biological parents.
It was just as the connection had been weakened, and the childish Xiao Yao had started to remember things from two years ago. It was impossible for his parents to forget what their son looked like, therefore, without Qing Mozi’s knowledge, Xiao Yao met his parents.
That year, Qing Mozi encountered several calamities, and his breaking point was approaching, so he went into seclusion in order to seek a chance for a breakthrough.
The good news waz that Qing Mozi successfully broke through after a year of seclusion, and his life expectancy increased by 300 years. The bad news was that when Qing Mozi stepped out of his hideaway, what he saw was his extremely precious disciple kneeling at the door. There was also a second apprentice who was like a stuffy gourd standing beside him.
"I don't actually remember this. To be exact, I have lost all my memories before the age of six and a half; what I remember now is actually similar to that of ordinary people." Xiao Yao took a sip of juice and moistened his dry throat, "These things were later told by the master to me and Qu Lang.
"My destiny had done evil, was restrained, and broke free."
"Master told me this to tell me...that I chose to lock away my memory." Xiao Yao said this, still a little uneasy, took a deep breath and continued, "When I saw my parents, my fate was out of the master's control, and the two years when I had a weakened connection before, and the year when I met my parents again, all of them were locked away."
"I don't know what I did to them in the end, but I know why I knelt in front of the master's closed door." Xiao Yao closed his eyes wearily, "...If I lived without restraint, even if they didn't die the first time, I would kill them eventually."
"After my memory was locked, I didn't remember any of these things." Xiao Yao said, "The formation that used the rules of heaven to activate, not only me, but even Qu Lang's memory has also been blurred in parts, such as he has obviously seen my parents and witnessed what happened back then, but he just can't remember."
After finishing the most important parts of his childhood, Xiao Yao talked about some fragmentary things, "I basically remember things from the age of seven and later, but there are obviously places that have been deliberately blurred. For example, I remember when Qu Lang and I were training separately for a while, but I don't remember exactly what I was training for.
"There have been several breakpoints in my memory. The master said that my ward has been superimposed with several layers, but I don't know when it was superimposed or why."
Xiao Yao told Baiju everything he knew, he was still a little nervous before, but he was calmer after speaking. He turned his head to look into the old white dog's eyes, paused, and said softly, "Bai'ge, I want to get my memory back."
Baiju's expression was soft, and when he saw Xiao Yao's serious and hopeful eyes, he couldn't help reaching out and grabbing Xiao Yao's shoulders and pulling him into his arms.
"Don't worry, nothing will go wrong." Baiju gently rubbed Xiao Yao's hair, and continued, "Yao Yao, do you know why your fate will madly absorb the lifespan and fortune of your blood relatives?"
Xiao Yao rested his forehead against Baiju's neck, and shook his head slightly when he heard the words, "I don't know."
In order to clarify this issue, he also searched many ancient books, but he didn't find any fate that would have such an impact on the people around him as his did. Even if there was, most of the cases he found were caused by possession by ghosts, evil gods and demons. In these cases, it was impossible for a person to live a normal life and accumulate any merit.
Baiju heard the words, sighed, and said softly, "It's not your fault, nor is it the fault of your destiny. Heaven leaves a line, and a person with a destiny like you is born. If you don't control it, such things will indeed happen to your blood relatives, but they are not normally fatal."
"Although it's a bit outrageous to say it, it can only be blamed on the heavens." Baiju said, "The Daoist methods have declined, the fortune is insufficient, and reincarnation cannot be obtained. The world's luck will become a pool of stagnant water. Your destiny attracts great luck. If the available luck is not enough, it cannot survive, so when you settle down it focuses on absorbing the life of blood relatives to make up for it.”
"Reincarnation can't be obtained?" Xiao Yao was a little confused when he heard this, and said doubtfully, "I know that Daoism has declined, and the flow of qi is insufficient, but reincarnation still exists, and the ghost-suppressing prison still exists, why do you say it is not obtainable? "
Baiju shook his head, "Although it is not absolutely impossible, any reincarnation is very special."
"In ancient times, there was the reincarnation of Daluo Jinxian, who had been reincarnated for hundreds of lives, and has experienced all kinds of calamities until his refinement was enough, and all his previous experiences were returned, and he achieved a supreme Dharma body."
"In other words, although reincarnation is a law, it is also a whetstone that polishes the world. Countless people of destiny are buried in this world. Only by polishing them over and over in reincarnation can the dusty treasures be gradually polished."
"The same soul will emit new vitality in reincarnation over and over again; and this vitality will bring new power and possibility of change to the world. Therefore, the meaning of reincarnation is not just a simple causal cycle, more accurately, it injects fresh blood into the Dao, and a major manifestation of this fresh blood is Daoist fortune.”
Baiju thought about it and used some common things in the world as an analogy, "A pool of stagnant water, without wind or waves, is just water; but water on the earth turns into rivers, lakes, seas, frost, snow, rain and dew, constantly changing and circulating so life can be conceived.”
"The same is true of reincarnation. In the past, reincarnation was governed and maintained by a large number of gods, but the current reincarnation has no gods and has become an instinctive operation of Daoism. If I have to say it, it has degenerated from intelligence to mechanisation, and naturally there is no new great fortune. The fortune between heaven and earth is missing, so your destiny is 'starving'."
Xiao Yao felt he understood, and stripped away the many emotions from his mind, and calmly analysed, "So, it was not that there were no people similar to me in the past, but that they wouldn't become a Lonely Star without relatives, because the divine way had not yet declined, and there was still a great fortune between heaven and earth to absorb?"
Baiju nodded, "That's right. You can go restore your memory, now you know why, and you won't be helpless. Finally, in terms of your destiny, it's not a dead end." It was just that Qing Mozi and the others didn't have enough information and ability, and could only delay Xiao Yao's problems but not solve them.
After a pause, Baiju thought of something again, so he told Xiao Yao in the most simple words, "Don't worry, once the problem is solved, no matter how much damage you have caused to your family before, as long as they are still alive, they will turn around in the future."
Xiao Yao stayed in Baiju's arms, stunned for a while, then slowly rolled his eyes and replied softly, "Okay."
A strange sound rang out. Baiju and Xiao Yao regained their senses, and finally remembered that a third-party, Qu Lang, was sitting on the single-seat sofa next to them.
Qu Lang licked the straw, and looked at the dogman and the man who were hugging each other, "Can I have another drink."
I didn't split the chapter into parts, the author did.
