The night scene was as quiet as water while a tall figure stood by the bed and coldly gazed at the young lady resting. His eyes radiated a ceramic glaze-like luster. He slowly extended his hand and lightly reached out to her face. When it was only a centimeter away from Yun Luofeng's face, her eyes suddenly opened wide and sharp glint flashed through the air.

The figure beside the bed froze and before he had the time to leave, he felt an ice-cold longsword held against his neck.

"I originally thought you were sent by Noble Consort Ling, so I intended to feign my sleep and see what were you up to. However, you actually wanted to take advantage of me?"

A cold glint flashed in her eyes and she stared coldly at the figure standing before her. The dim light of night was without boundary and there wasn't the slightest trace of light in the room. As such, Yun Luofeng could only vaguely make out an outline...

Even so, she could still sense the cold yet complicated gaze from the man. Unknowingly, this expression was familiar to her, seemingly having seen it somewhere...

"I... walked into the wrong room." After a long time, the man purposely deepened his voice and spoke hoarsely.

Walked into the wrong room?

Yun Luofeng narrowed her eyes and sneered, "You think I will believe your words? Huohuo, light a fire!"

"Yes, Master!"

After speaking, a flame-like figure suddenly appeared out of nowhere. That figure was very lovable and petite while having two braids and looked adorable when looking at her from an angle. Huohuo opened her palms and a flame ignited from her hands in an instant, illuminating the entire room.

Yun Luofeng saw the person was flustered and wanted to escape in haste. Yet, the moment he took two steps, he had been blocked by that lovable figure.

The little girl raised her chin with an overbearing attitude. "My Master hasn't let you go so who allowed you to leave?"

The man's back stiffened and he faced away from Yun Luofeng. Under the light from the flame, he appeared lonesome and desolate.

Yun Luofeng slowly walked up and came before him. This man wanted to hide from her gaze and he hastily lowered his head, not daring to look straight into her eyes.

"Raise your head!" Her voice was indifferent and languid, yet containing a trace of command.

The man's body became increasingly stiff and he ultimately raised his head slowly under her watch. In an instant, a handsome and cold face came into view.

"Xiao Yuqing?"

Looking at this familiar face, Yun Luofeng slowly spat out these few words while her gaze revealed cautiousness.

"Why are you here?"

Xiao Yuqing eyes contained a complicated emotion. "That day, after being transported to the Forest of No Return by my mother, I came here through the forest and even luckily obtained the Fengyun Kingdom's Emperor's good graces to represent them in this tournament."

He paused for a moment before continuing. "I never thought that I would meet you here... Yun Luofeng, long time no see."

Long time no see...

Even though they hadn't met for a long time, he had never forgotten her all this time. However, for her, he was a dispensable existence.

If it was Yun Xiao, even under the situation without lights, she would recognize him at a glance.

Thinking of this, Xiao Yuqing felt sad. Perhaps in his lifetime, this woman wouldn't spare him an additional glance.

"You're not here to take revenge?" Yun Luofeng raised her eyebrows, "After all, I killed your parents."
