I Am Overlord Chapter 1035– Rest In Peace, Big Black

This was an underground cave and a secret s.p.a.ce constructed through spatial techniques. Only a cultivator at the Heaven Battling Realm and above would be able to understand the profundities behind the creation of such a secret s.p.a.ce.

The s.p.a.ce was clean with a refres.h.i.+ng breeze. When one breathed, one could practically smell the natural spiritual energy in the air. Formation runes covered the walls of the cave, and hidden within the runes were powerful killing formations.

Relying on his blood essence, Xiang Shaoyun was able to travel unimpeded. Soon, he arrived at the cave’s central area. There, some memory fragments started surfacing, and an imposing figure appeared in his mind. The figure was nothing but a soul clone, yet it emanated an aura so imposing one would not dare to look straight at it.

The figure was seated atop a ma.s.sive black horse. With a saber in hand, he held his head high and spoke to the sky, “I, Xiang Dingtian, dominate the world. However, the numerous organizations of the world actually worked together to make me suffer heavy losses. Unfortunately, I perished from their joint attack. Even so, my will to fight will never be extinguished. In my next life, I will return and sweep through the dominion!”

That figure was none other than Xiang Dingtian. After his death, Xiang Dingtian had left his inheritance here, waiting for himself to return in his next life and inherit all his memories. As for how he knew he would reincarnate, it involved an even greater secret and was a puzzle that would not be unraveled so easily.

Here, Xiang Shaoyun seemed to have transformed into a different person. He strode forward, and as he looked at his surroundings, warmth filled his eyes.

There weren’t a lot of items in his surroundings. At a certain corner was a piece of withered purple wood. Below the withered wood was a clump of crackling lightning energy. It looked weak, but that was because it had been sealed. It actually contained a terrifyingly destructive might. Some random items could also be found around the place, and they were each extremely rare materials.

However, Xiang Shaoyun did not seem to pay much attention to them. He was focused on a certain altar and a pile of horse bones in a certain corner. He walked toward the pile. Even as a pile of bones, the dead horse still looked bold and majestic.

Xiang Shaoyun gently stroked the bones as a sorrowful look surfaced on his face. He said, “Big Black, little did I expect that when we met again, you would already be a pile of bones. In the past, you were by my side as we conquered the world and accomplished numerous outstanding military deeds together. This Overlord is really sad to see you end up like this.”

As he spoke, a curtain of mist started clouding his eyes. He couldn’t hide the intense sorrow he was feeling. Big Black was a nimbus horse, the king among horses that was comparable with the likes of celestial horses.

Back then, Xiang Dingtian was fortunate enough to earn the horse’s loyalty, and the two looked at each other as true brothers. But now, Big Black was dead and could no longer return to life.

After mourning on the ground for two hours, Xiang Shaoyun finally picked up the dimmed demonic core from the horse’s head. He muttered, “When I encounter your race in the future, I will pa.s.s on your demonic core, allowing you to live a new life!”

He then dug a big hole and buried the bones. When he finished, he bowed and said, “Rest in peace, Big Black.”

The phantom of a majestic black horse appeared in the cave. It gazed longingly at Xiang Shaoyun as it slowly faded away. Xiang Shaoyun took some time to gather his emotions. He then walked silently to the altar. 

He knew that this was where he could recover his memories from his previous life. He had already received one memory inheritance when he was a child. However, he was too weak back then to receive too many of the memories. Now that he was an adult, he could accept them all.

He stepped onto the altar and activated the formation on it. Rays of light shone from the altar, and soon, a phantom formed. The phantom transformed into a clump of light and seeped into his head.

The phantom was the memory inheritance Xiang Dingtian had left behind prior to his death. It contained everything he had learned and comprehended in his life. It would allow Xiang Shaoyun to recall it all, helping him progress further in his cultivation at a faster speed.

Numerous memories surged into his soul. He learned about his past, and his soul grew in strength. After all, the memory inheritance left behind by Xiang Dingtian also contained a portion of his soul power. Both of them were the same person, so Xiang Dingtian’s soul power was naturally capable of enhancing Xiang Shaoyun’s soul.

There seemed to be no limit to Xiang Shaoyun’s soul. After all, he had the soul raising stone in his Nether Soul Domain. The soul raising stone was a stone extremely beneficial to one’s soul. It could nourish and enhance one’s soul, helping one’s soul to remain full of vitality. Because Xiang Shaoyun’s soul was a filthless soul that had attained a solid form, it was much easier for him to fuse with the incoming soul power.

Xiang Shaoyun wasn’t paying any attention to his strengthening soul. He was focused on the memories he was receiving. They were not the entirety of Xiang Dingtian’s memories. They only contained the most important events of his life, such as his cultivation method, his brothers and friends, his enemies, and the situation back then when he was surrounded and killed by all those people who had joined hands.

The memories were deeply imprinted into Xiang Shaoyun’s mind, and he could no longer forget them even if he wanted to.

After an indeterminate amount of time, he recovered from his state of recollection. He sighed and said, “A lifetime as an overlord, a lifetime as a legend, only to end up being killed. Ultimately, I was too weak back then. If I had been able to take a step further, everything might have been different. In this life, I must reach the very peak before I even consider taking my revenge.”

The current Xiang Shaoyun wasn’t exactly the same Xiang Dingtian. With the Light of Wisdom, he was much more rational than Xiang Dingtian had expected. The Xiang Dingtian from back then was too arrogant. He had even tried to establish a Xiang Dynasty, and he had suffered the consequences of his arrogance.

For now, Xiang Shaoyun did not have such high ambitions. He also understood the limits of his current strength. He was much more practical in his decision making. He ignored all his recovered memories. Although he was tangled with his past life, he also felt that he was a brand new person. He was not the same person from his past two lives. 

Sure, Xiang Shaoyun was related to them, but they would not be the main factors influencing his actions in his current life. He would be the main character of this life, not them. 

Xiang Shaoyun then walked to the withered purple wood. He picked it up, and instantly, lightning energy covered his body.

“A piece of 10000-year-old lightning strike wood. This will be the ultimate treasure to help me cultivate my lightning power,” said Xiang Shaoyun.
