She decided she’d spend the rest of her life repaying her saviour (if that person came)- but never with her body.
If she repaid with her body, would there be any difference from right now?
Well, one was voluntary, one was forced.
However, to Li Yue, there wasn’t much difference between them.
At this moment, a ‘shooting star’ was flying towards the tent.
The ‘shooting star’ hit someone’s head, then flew at a different angle up to the top of Li Yue’s tent. It flew with so much force it pulled the entire tent upwards then wrapped Li Xiande in it.
At this point, Li Yue was coincidentally lying on the ground so she wasn’t trapped inside the tent. However, her clothes were torn but thank goodness all the important bits were still covered.
Her silky skin peeking through was still enough to make all the men present gulp…
Li Yue suddenly realised the problem and in a flurry, she instinctively tried to activate her Tianji Armour…
She realised the armour was successfully activated. This was puzzling, why didn’t it activate before then?
She quickly knew the answer. She saw one of the men maintaining the antimagic alchemy formation collapse to the ground, the formation disappearing in an instant.
There was a loud rip.
Li Xiande tore the tent off himself, appearing before Li Yue once again only to stand there, stunned. A shining, colourful suit of Tianji Armour covering her entire body.
What the fuck? How could she activate her armour?
Li Xiande looked towards his men and like Li Yue, noticed one of them had collapsed. He realised the shriek he’d heard earlier must’ve been from this person.
“What the fuck is going on?” he cursed, evident he was furious.
“Something flew at us, I don’t know what that was…” One of the men answered as he pointed in a direction, which was where the ‘shooting star’ came from.
“Who is there? Show yourself!” roared Li Xiande.
“It’s me.” There was a voice, a silhouette emerging from the shadows.
It was Ye Lang.
“Mr Fox!” Li Yue was ecstatic and so relieved to see him, her eyes sparkling as she looked at Ye Lang. She couldn’t believe Ye Lang would be the person who saved her.
Although Ye Lang wasn’t very smart to reveal himself like this, Li Yue did not think too much. All she knew was Ye Lang looked so heroic, so brave.
Right now, Li Yue was already protected upon the activation of her Tianji Armour, she didn’t have to worry about Li Xiande hurting her. Even if his father appeared, the First Swordsman would not be able to pry open her armour.
“Sorry I’m a little late, I was cooking supper… Oh, right! My supper…” Ye Lang was initially calm but his expression turned anxious as he rushed over to Li Yue.
When she heard him, she was ready to kill Ye Lang. She was almost raped and this boy was making supper?!
Then a very puzzling thing happened because she watched as Ye Lang ran towards her, searched the ground for something, then picked up a piece of clay and sighed. “Thank goodness it’s fine…”
This was his supper? That’s odd.
“This was the thing that hit us?” asked Li Xiande. Even he could guess that this piece of rock was the one that ruined his plans.
“I think so…” The rest couldn’t be sure. It was dark, they couldn’t see it well.
“Yep, this was the thing that hit you. I threw it.” Ye Lang nodded, confirming everyone’s suspicious. He had to make it very clear because Li Yue had to know he was the one who threw it.
“You! Do you want to die today?” Li Xiande was radiating violence, about to slash Ye Lang into a thousand pieces.
“Nope, I’m just here to play the hero to save the girl. Li Yue, are you alright?” Ye Lang told them truthfully. So truthfully he literally said ‘play the hero’.
“I’m fine, I think you should stay away, inform the organisers and get help,” said Li Yue calmly. Based on her impression of Ye Lang, she was sure he didn’t have the capability to play the hero. In fact, he might get hurt in the process.
“Get help? How would I be the hero then? Let me do this alone!” said Ye Lang with a laugh. It was a very confident laugh.
Was he faking it?
Of course he was. These people were sent by Athena to orchestrate a scene, and he was there to fake playing the hero too.
At this point, Ye Lang seemed to think it was all just a sham. That was why he was very calm, very confident.
“This is your hero? More like your pet, who is going to die today,” sneered Li Xiande. After looking Ye Lang up and down, he felt Ye Lang was nothing compared to him.
“Eh, why do you look so familiar?” At least Ye Lang recognised him, though he couldn’t recall where they’d met before.
Li Xiande glared at him coldly. “I don’t care if you know me. That isn’t important because you’re about to die today.”
As he spoke, his grip on his sword tightened. He was about to attack, yet he couldn’t help but feel slightly nervous looking at Ye Lang and his calm face.
“Be careful, he’s the son of the First Swordsman, he’s a Di Earth Level fighter!” reminded Li Yue. “I think you should run, I have the Tianji Armour, I’ll be alright here.”
“The son of the First Swordsman? Ah, I remember, you’re that…. That…” Ye Lang finally remembered where they’d met, though he couldn’t remember the guy’s name.
“Li Xiande,” reminded Coldblood Five.
“Right, Li Xiande. I knew it, both the brothers are quite useless after all,” remarked Ye Lang.
“What did you say?” Li Xiande grew angrier.
“Bye.” Once Ye Lang knew he was Li Xiande, he left immediately, sprinting at top speed away from them.
Everyone fell silent, not expecting Ye Lang to do this at all. They couldn’t believe he’d leave just like that.
Didn’t he just say he was going to play the hero? And he’d just run away!
Li Yue was a little disappointed at his behaviour. Although it was the best plan, she was still a little uncomfortable.
“Why are you running?” came Coldblood Five’s message.
“Nonsense! If that’s Li Xiande, that means this is real. It’s not orchestrated by Athena,” answered Ye Lang.
At least he wasn’t clueless right now. It was true. Athena would never be able to involve Li Xiande in her plans. There was no other way to explain what just happened. That meant just one thing: this ‘playing the hero’ moment was real.
“So what if it’s real? Isn’t it good then? You can knock everyone out and win Li Yue’s heart!” said Coldblood Five. It was a very good opportunity.
“I know, that’s exactly what I’m going to do!” said Ye Lang.
