Yu Donghai’s mind was in a mess, and he utterly didn’t realize that his words from before were filled with mistakes.
He grabbed the wine pot on the table and drank a mouthful of wine before saying with certainty, “That’s right, it is called Spirit Restraining Parasite! But that thing has already been burned. It should not have appeared!”
He suspected that he had made a mistake, and he frowned again.
Yu Huang pretended to be innocently curious while asking Yu Donghai, “Father, what is Spirit Restraining Parasite?”
Upon hearing these three words, Yu Donghai was filled with disgust.
After pondering for a moment, Yu Donghai slowly said, “A few hundred years ago, there was an evil Purifying Spirit Master who appeared on the Holy Spirit Continent. No one remembers his name anymore. All we know is that he used all the knowledge he had learned in his lifetime to create an evil venomous insect that specializes in dealing with Beast Tamers! This venomous insect feeds on the beast’s nature. If a child who has yet to awaken their beast form is poisoned by this venomous insect, the beast’s nature in their body will be slowly devoured by the venomous insect. In the end, they will become an ordinary person and unable to awaken their beast form for the rest of their lives!”
Yu Huang asked, “Is this Spirit Restraining Parasite really so powerful?”
“More than that. If this thing is planted on a large scale, it can exterminate the entire clan!”
In order to let Yu Huang understand how terrifying this thing was, Yu Donghai told her a story that had been sealed for many years.
“The Su Clan of Kui Mountain, which was six hundred years old, was originally a great cultivation clan and could rival the six great cultivation clans of today. However, such a great clan had completely declined in a short span of twenty years because all the young children of the Su Clan seemed to have been cursed, and none of them had awakened their beast form!”
“The Su Family’s decline is truly strange. The six families joined hands to investigate this matter, and discovered that there was an unprecedented parasite hidden in the bodies of the Su Family disciples. This parasite is precisely the Spirit Restraining Parasite!”
“The Su Family’s decline made the six families deeply aware of the abominability of this Spirit Restraining Gu. They worked together to capture that Purifying Spirit Master, beheaded him in public, and burned the method to refine the Spirit Restraining Parasite. Logically speaking, this thing should have been destroyed long ago…”
After hearing Yu Donghai’s explanation, Yu Huang had a deeper understanding of the Spirit Restraining Parasite. She said, “Father, so you suspect that there is also a Spirit Restraining Parasite in my body?”
Yu Donghai wasn’t certain, but the abnormality that appeared on Yu Huang’s body was exactly the same as the reaction toward Spirit Restraining Parasite, so he could not help but think that way.
“Those with beast nature can definitely awaken their beast form! You have a strong beast nature, but you are unable to awaken your beast form. This does not make sense! If someone secretly planted a Spirit Restraining Parasite in your body, that would explain the abnormality in your body.”
Yu Donghai’s words were logical and well-founded, and Yu Huang almost believed him. However, she remained calm throughout, and reminded Yu Donghai, “Father, I’m just an ordinary person. I’m not worthy of others scheming to harm me.”
When he heard these words, Yu Donghai’s expression looked shifty.
Yu Huang had been observing Yu Donghai’s reaction the entire time. When she saw that Yu Donghai’s gaze was shifty, as if he was hiding some secret, she knew that her father was definitely hiding something from her.
Yu Huang deliberately put on a deflated look and said dejectedly, “Maybe I’m just unlucky and destined not to become a Beast Tamer. Father, I’ve accepted my fate.”
When Yu Donghai heard Yu Huang say that she had accepted her fate, he seemed to have suffered a huge blow. He raised his voice and berated her, “Nonsense! You can accept anything, but you can’t resign yourself to fate!”
Yu Huang was shocked.
This reaction was too unusual!
Yu Donghai forcefully placed the wine pot on the dining table. He rubbed his face, and made an important decision.
“You have to listen carefully to what I’m going to tell you next. After you hear it, you have to keep it to yourself. Before you have absolute strength, you cannot reveal it to anyone!”
Yu Donghai’s expression was too serious, so Yu Huang could only nod her head solemnly. “Father, I will definitely keep this secret.”
Nodding his head, Yu Donghai opened the lid of the wine jar and drank a mouthful of wine. After that, not knowing where to start, he fell into silence.
Yu Huang knew that Yu Donghai was organizing his words, so she didn’t disturb him.
After a quarter of an hour, Yu Donghai suddenly opened his mouth and said, “You said earlier that you’re just an ordinary person, and that you’re not worthy of someone scheming to harm you. You’re gravely mistaken.”
Yu Huang only looked at him quietly. She didn’t urge him or ask him any questions.
Yu Donghai asked Yu Huang a question, “Have you ever thought about your birth father’s identity?”
