2510 A Cover

    "Let's go," Tang Xiao Xiao replied as she removed the cloth that hid her face throughout the journey.

    Duan Ling Tian, naturally, discovered this immediately. "You..." He was taken aback by her appearance. She was extremely beautiful with her arched eyebrows, straight and tall nose, bright eyes, and cute and pink lips. She looked extremely enticing. When she smiled, her dimples became prominent, and he could not help but fall into a daze. He had seen his share of beautiful women in the past. His wives, Ke'er and Li Fei, and his partner, Feng Tian Wu, were all peerless beauties in their own rights. However, Tang Xiao Xiao's beauty was not inferior to them. There was no need to compare them since all of them were a different kind of beauty.

    Everyone loved looking at beautiful things, and Duan Ling Tian was no exception to that. After a moment, he finally regained his senses.

    When Tang Xiao Xiao saw Duan Ling Tian had snapped out of his daze, she feigned a frown and asked teasingly, "What? Did I scare you with my ugly appearance?"

    "If you're considered ugly, then, most women would have to kill themselves," Duan Ling Tian said gently with a bitter smile.

    "I didn't expect you to be such a smooth talker," Tang Xiao Xiao looked at Duan Ling Tian knowingly and said, "You must have a lot of women waiting for you."

    Upon hearing that, Duan Ling Tian's smile froze on his face. Then, he clenched his hands tightly as his expression darkened and killing intent surged from his body.

    Tang Xiao Xiao felt chills running up her spine when she saw this. She said apologetically, "Sorry, did I say something I shouldn't have said?"

    After seeing the change Duan Ling Tian underwent, the smile on Tang Xiao Xiao's face disappeared along with her pretty dimples as she looked at him worriedly.

    "It's alright." Duan Ling Tian regained his senses when he heard the anxiety laced in Tang Xiao Xiao's question. He shook his head and quickly changed his expression. When she had mentioned the women who were waiting for him, he had remembered Ke'Er, Li Fei, and Feng Tian Wu, and the situation they were in. At the same time, he inadvertently thought about the culprit, Yun Qing Yan as well. When he thought about that man, he had let his killing intent out.

    Although Duan Ling Tian had returned to his normal behavior, Tang Xiao Xiao no longer dared to joke around. At the same time, she was curious about what had made him lose his composure. She thought to herself, 'It seems like I've hit the nail on the head. He must have a lot of women waiting for him. However, why did he react in such a manner?' She was baffled.

    Duan Ling Tian quickly changed the topic when he noticed the lingering awkwardness. "When I first met you, you seemed unapproachable... At that time, I thought you were an icy beauty. Who knew you'd be so lively?"

    "Lively?" Tang Xiao Xiao was taken aback by his words. She just realized, without knowing when, she had stopped putting up a facade in front of him. The only person whom she acted in this manner with was her ancestor. After all, her facade was a way for her to protect herself.

    Tang Xiao Xiao was still deep in her thoughts when a loud voice resounded from afar. At the same time, three figures could be seen heading in the direction of the Inter-stellar Transportation Formation. "Xiao Xiao!"

    In just a blink of an eye, the three figures appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian and Tang Xiao Xiao. A young man dressed in luxurious clothes led the group. A blue-clad middle-aged man and a green-clad old man stood behind him. It seemed like the young man was the one who had called out to Tang Xiao Xiao.


    Prior to their arrival, Duan Ling Tian noticed the smile on Tang Xiao Xiao's face had vanished as soon as she heard the finely-dressed young man's voice. Currently, a cold expression that made her seem extremely unapproachable could be seen on her face. It was so cold that it seemed to have made the temperature in the surroundings drop by a few degrees.

    "Xiao Xiao, who's he?!" The finely-dressed young man's expression turned sour when he saw Duan Ling Tian. This was his first time seeing Tang Xiao Xiao acting so familiar with a man. Moreover, this man was someone he was not familiar with. He was obviously not from Tang Sect. Even if this man was from Tang Sect, he was certain the man would only be an ordinary disciple. Otherwise, he would have recognized him.

    "Hm?" At this moment, Duan Ling Tian discovered the finely-dressed young man was rudely sizing him up as though he was warning him off.

    Before Duan Ling Tian could react, Tang Xiao Xiao moved at lightning speed and pressed herself against Duan Ling Tian's side. She reached out and twined her arm around his arm, making them look really close. She stared at the finely-dressed young man coldly and said, "He's my man."

    The moment the finely-dressed young man saw Tang Xiao Xiao's intimate action toward Duan Ling Tian, his expression had changed drastically. When he heard her words, his expression worsened.

    At the same time, a frown had involuntarily appeared on Duan Ling Tian's face. Was Tang Xiao Xiao using him as a cover? He was no stranger to such tricks. In his past life on earth, to pass time, he would read novels on the internet. Through these novels, he learned that women would occasionally use a man as a cover to reject their admirers. It seemed like now he was in a situation that he had frequently read about in the past. He had frowned earlier because he did not like being used. However, his expression eased after a while, and he did not expose her lie. He asked her through Voice Transmission, "Is he one of your admirers?"


    Duan Ling Tian was baffled by Tang Xiao Xiao's reply. Was he mistaken? According to her, the finely-dressed young man was not her admirer.

    "Tang Xiao Xiao!" The finely-dressed young man said in a low voice, completely disregarding Duan Ling Tian and treating him as though he was invisible, "Don't forget you're engaged to Brother Yu Ting! Sect Leader has agreed with Brother Yu Ting's father to hold a grand celebration for your engagement as soon as you return from the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone!" He shot her a warning look when he reached the end of his sentence.

    "Engaged?" Tang Xiao Xiao's expression changed dramatically. Then, she asked icily, "How come I don't even know that I'm engaged?

    "Sect Leader and Brother Yu Ting's father came to this decision after you entered the Beyond Heaven Secret Zone," the finely-dressed young man said. Then, he turned to Duan Ling Tian and said rudely, "Brat, do you even know the identity of the woman standing next to you? Not only is she the strongest among the younger generation in Tang Sect, but she's also the fiancée of the Young Mansion Master of Heavenly Wave Mansion! If you want to live, you better keep your distance from her. Otherwise, both the Tang Sect and the Heavenly Wave Mansion won't let you go!"

    Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes at the threat that the finely-dressed young man made. He said nonchalantly, "Oh, it seems like you're not one of Xiao Xiao's admirers. Based on your reaction, I thought you're one of her admirers. I didn't expect you to be the dog of one of her admirers instead." Through the finely-dressed young man's earlier words, he had managed to piece the puzzle together.

    The Heavenly Wave Mansion is a sect whose strength was comparable to the Celestial Masters Sect. A few years ago, the Young Mansion Master of Heavenly Wave Mansion, Yang Yu Ting, met Tang Xiao Xiao and was entranced by her beauty. After that, he began to pursue her, but she had always been dismissive toward him. As a last resort, Yang Yu Ting had sought help from his father, the Mansion Master of Heavenly Wave Mansion. For this reason, the Mansion Master of Heavenly Wave Mansion had asked for her hand in marriage on his son's behalf.

    Naturally, Tang Xiao Xiao had rejected the proposal. Moreover, her ancestor, an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials and Supreme Elder, in Tang Sect had also supported her decision.

    However, the other two Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials in Tang Sect, the Sect Leader and a Supreme Elder, had agreed to it. In their opinion, this marriage was beneficial to the Tang Sect.

    Since Tang Sect did not have any Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial, the decisions were made by the three Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials. For this reason, Tang Xiao Xiao's ancestor had been vetoed by the other two. As a Supreme Elder of Tang Sect and one of the pillars of the sect, it was not appropriate for him to overturn the decision made by the other two just because she was his descendant and he favored her.

    On the other hand, the finely-dressed young man was the descendant of the other Supreme Elder in Tang Sect. Even before this, he had already had a close relationship with Yang Yu Ting, the Young Mansion Master of Heavenly Wave Mansion. Rather than a friend, it was more accurate to say he was like Yang Yu Ting's minion.
