Chapter 393 Hidden Scheme!
Chapter 393 Hidden Scheme!
"Three questions. I will only answer three questions from you, and I will not answer any question about something personal." Tang Li Xue's perfect copy stated her terms to Elder Yang.
Elder Yang nodded his head without any hesitation and said with the solemn expression: "All right. First, are you my Xiao Bai or not?"
"I... do not know..." Tang Li Xue's perfect copy wanted to deny it in an instant and said: 'I am not.'
But she started to feel unsure right now because of a scene with Elder Yang that suddenly appeared in her mind before.
Elder Yang frowned when he heard the reply from Tang Li Xue's perfect copy and asked again: "You do not know...? What do you mean that you do not know?!"
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy bit her pink lips and pondered it for a few moments if she should answer it honestly or not before replied: "I am... still unsure about that. I mean, I am really sure that I had never met you before we met in the forest near Quanhai City."
"But I suddenly had a dream just now that you called me Xiao Bai, and you said something like owing me your life, then invited me to leave my forest and follow you back to your sect." Tang Li Xue's perfect copy calmly stated as she carefully looked at Elder Yang's expression to judge his reaction.
Elder Yang's eyes brightened a lot after he heard the words from Tang Li Xue's perfect copy and murmured with a joyous tone: "I know it! You are really my Xiao Bai! At that time, I was..."
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy raised her palm to stop Elder Yang from speaking and said with a firm tone: "Just so you know, I am one hundred percent sure that I never enter or come into Immortal Sword Sect before, so I am still quite sure that I have no connection to you at all before."
Elder Yang's expression turned ashen once again when she heard the strong denial from Tang Li Xue's perfect copy.
Actually, Elder Yang was already very sure that Tang Li Xue was his Xiao Bai right now from her familiar mesmerizing topaz blue eyes, silky smooth silver hair, and that ring necklace in her possession, but he wanted to know the reason why Tang Li Xue kept denying it and act as if he was a stranger to her.
But now, Elder Yang finally knew the reason for it after he carefully deduced it from Tang Li Xue's every word...
'So she did not remember anything about me at all other than that dream of hers...' Elder Yang thought in his mind as his heart was feeling very painful as if it was pierced by thousands of needles.
Subconsciously, Elder Yang released his grip on Tang Li Xue's hand and closed his eyes in sorrow.
The time was trickling slowly...
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy had waited patiently for five minutes, but Elder Yang only lowered his head in silence as if he was mourning something.
Tang Li Xue did not understand nor did she really care about it, but she started to lose her patience from waiting for Elder Yang's response, so she decided to say something to Elder Yang first: "You already asked two questions. You can ask one more question to me."
Elder Yang slowly raised his head again and opened his eyes, then stared silently at Tang Li Xue's stunning face for a few moments.
Then he suddenly swung both of his palms!
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy swiftly raised both of her hands too in reflex to defend herself.
But both of Elder Yang's palms were only heavily slapped his own cheeks until it turned really red and swollen.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy widened her eyes and stared at Elder Yang with a weird gaze as if she was staring at a lunatic.
'I am such a coward! So what if she forgot everything about me! At least, she is still healthy and alive right now. As long as she is still alive, we can make as many memories as we want in the future. So why do I need to feel so down and disappointed now?!' Elder Yang thought as he stared at Tang Li Xue's perfect copy and smiled gently at her.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy shuddered slightly under Elder Yang's stare, and she impatiently said to him again: "I do not have much time anymore, so quickly ask your third question!"
Elder Yang stared at Tang Li Xue's perfect copy with a bright expression for a while before shook his head and replied: "There is no need for that. I have decided to save my third question for later."
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy widened her eyes in bafflement and asked for confirmation from Elder Yang: "Eh... what? Are you sure you want to save your third question for later? Are you really sure about it? Just so you know, there will be no guarantee that we will meet again in the future."
Elder Yang laughed at Tang Li Xue's perfect copy after he heard her words and replied: "You do not need to worry about that. I am very sure that we will meet again in the future as long as you wear that ring necklace."
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy frowned deeply when she heard Elder Yang's words, and she started to suspect that Elder Yang put something to her ring necklace like a tracker.
In fact, the real Tang Li Xue has already started carefully inspecting the ring necklace she was wearing.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy glared at Elder Yang to get some clues from his current expression, but Elder Yang was still smiling gently while stared back at Tang Li Xue's perfect copy without saying anything.
"Sigh… If you really do not want to ask any questions from me anymore, then I will go now. Do not forget your promise to never disclose my identity to others!" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy sighed in relief and reminded Elder Yang again.
Just when the real Tang Li Xue wanted to unsummon her perfect copy from there, Elder Yang suddenly spoke…
"Wait a minute!" Elder Yang stopped Tang Li Xue's perfect copy from leaving.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy felt annoyed and asked Elder Yang with an impatient tone: "What? Do you change your mind and want to ask me your last question?"
"No, it is not about that. I believe you will not feel safe if it is only me that knew your secret. So I decided to tell you my secret too, to make you feel more secure." Elder Yang replied while chuckled at Tang Li Xue's perfect copy.
"Secret? What secret?" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy felt curious and asked as her topaz blue eyes glittered brighter.
Elder Yang approached Tang Li Xue's perfect copy until she could even feel his warm breathes on her sensitive ear and blushed slightly.
Elder Yang whispered to her right ear: "Actually, I am the former Patriarch of one of the Demonic Sects, Asura Demon Sect. I infiltrate into Immortal Sword Sect and join as one of their Honorary Elder only to hide from the Asura Demon Sect's pursue. That was the reason why I need to wear this silver mask to hide my face from the public."
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was completely stunned by Elder Yang's statement, and she dropped her jaw in shock.
"I also plan to use Immortal Sword Sect's support to exact my revenge to Asura Demon Sect sooner or later. How about that? If you disclose my secret to the public, not only I will be abandoned and chased out from Immortal Sword Sect, I will also get hunted by the Asura Demon Sect again." Elder Yang whispered again to Tang Li Xue's perfect copy.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy tilted her head cutely and stared at Elder Yang again to judge if he told any lie to her or not, but her [Extrasensory Perception] did not sense even a bit of lie from Elder Yang at all.
Elder Yang's face and Tang Li Xue's perfect copy were really close until they could feel each other warm breathes now.
"Why are you telling me this?" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy with a tone filled with suspicion.
Elder Yang replied with a comforting tone: "As I said before, it is to make you feel more secure because I do not want you to worry all the time about me disclosing your secret. At least it will make you feel safer right now after I told you about my secret, right?"
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy slowly nodded her head in reluctance while kept staring suspiciously at Elder Yang.
Elder Yang smiled at Tang Li Xue's perfect copy and took this chance while they were still so close to each other to gently kiss the forehead of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy wanted to dodge it, but it was already too late since Elder Yang's lips already gently touched her forehead.
Tang Li Xue thought that she would feel disgusted and angry, but contrary to her expectation, she did not feel like that at all.
It was such a familiar and nostalgic feeling as if her forehead had already been kissed like this so many times by Elder Yang before.
Actually, Xiao Hei already kissed Tang Li Xue's forehead so many times before when she was still in her fox form whenever he wanted to go sleep or went to work and left her alone in his room.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy vanished before Elder Yang even has time to see her reaction since the real Tang Li Xue decided to unsummon it from a few miles away from there.
Tang Li Xue decided to do so because she did not want Elder Yang to see her blushing expression.
Elder Yang closed his eyes and felt a bit lonely but he still smiled, then murmured to himself: "Xiao Bai... I am looking forward to our next meeting. I hope we can spend more time together in our next meeting."
It did not take long for Elder Yang's luxurious carriage and the two Nascent Soul Elders that followed behind Elder Yang's carriage to reach Imperial Palace after that.
Ten minutes or so before Elder Yang's luxurious carriage and the two Nascent Soul Elders arrived at the Imperial Palace, no one knew it, but Instructor Mei Lan already entered the Imperial Palace first before them, and she already approached the location of tonight's banquet.
"AAAAAARRRGGGHHHH~!!!" The male deafening scream echoed from the location of tonight's banquet.
Instructor Mei Lan hastened her step toward the location of tonight's banquet, and then she saw that the place was actually already littered with so many corpses.
There was no doubt that the people here already died since their bodies were already torn to pieces by something…
Instructor Mei Lan found that there was still someone that stood at the location of tonight's banquet.
"I know that you are still here, Zuo Hongzhuang." Instructor Mei Lan spoke to the person who stood in the middle of that mountain of corpses.
