Chapter 712: Not Xiao Feng
Xiao Feng pretended to be oblivious to her voice as he raced through the forest. All he could do was pray to the universe that she wouldn’t be able to catch up.
However, no matter how fast he had gone, he still wasn’t able to evade her.
“Fine! I’ll stop, I’ll stop,” he pants out, raising his arms up to the sky. His legs were shaking to the point that he thought they’ll just give out on him. “Please. Please have mercy.”
If he continued running away from her, he’d probably die right then and there.
Yao Tang raised an eyebrow. “You took something from me.”
She didn’t phrase it as a question, but rather, as a confirmation.
“Please have mercy. I didn’t do it on purpose,” he pleaded. “It was an accident! I didn’t know that I’ll come across an array, and the only reason I solved it was that I was curious. I didn’t know that the thing inside was yours!”
This person was strong, far stronger than anyone would think.
The only thing he had hoped for was for her to have some mercy.

Yao Tang took out a dagger from her sheath and placed it right next to his neck. Her blade grazed across his skin, as her voice echoed across the forest.
When she had placed the meteorite inside the array, she made sure to check her surroundings.
It must’ve happened by accident.
“That’s right. It really happened by accident,” he said quickly. “I was supposed to bring it back, but when I saw someone walking by, I panicked!”
His voice was sincere as ever as if he was really telling the truth. “I was just afraid that the person would take it. It wasn’t like I was going to steal it from the tree!”
Xiao Feng nodded rapidly.
He slowly relaxed. At first, he wanted to turn his head, but the dagger in his neck was close enough to cut him. He took a deep breath.
“Xiao Feng never lies. Don’t worry.”
Yao Tang narrowed her eyes. “You’re not Xiao Feng, are you?”
“Miss Tang, what are you talking about?”
Xiao Feng seemed to be very shocked and couldn’t help but ask.
Yes. His name wasn’t Xiao Feng, and he also knew that the girl in front of him wasn’t Tang Yu. He knew this very well in his heart.
But he certainly wasn’t going to break character.
His goal was to let her believe that he really believed that she was Tang Yu. Only then would he be much safer.
Xiao Feng was the young master of the Xiao Family, and he certainly wasn’t him. Despite this, he smiled.

“I’m Xiao Feng, truly. If you don’t believe me, you can bring me to the Xiao Family yourself.” This woman obviously hasn’t seen him before, so he could still bullshit his way out.
At the same time, he was also certain that the woman wouldn’t dare bring him to the Xiao Family.
That was why he was confident enough to pretend.
What he didn’t expect was for the woman to really know Xiao Feng.
“It’s fine if you don’t remember who you really are,” she said slowly. “I’m sure we’d both find out when I crack your head open.”
A chill shot down his spine.
He understood what Yao Tang meant. If he didn’t say it now, he would cut his head open.
Was his life at stake?
He needed to say his identity unless he wanted to be one with the fertilizer around here.
The man sighed. “I’m Yu Chen, the Young Master of the Yu Family,” he said quickly. “My family has lived in seclusion for so many years. Only when I learned the array formation this year did my elders ask me to explore the world and learn from others.”
“I… I didn’t want to embarrass my family, so I used Xiao Feng’s name to get by. I didn’t expect to be recognized by you.” He sighed.
His original arrogance had faded.
He didn’t expect to meet up with someone who knew he was a fake. He pursed his lips.
Not only was she a genius, but she was also extremely powerful. It seemed that there was someone out there who was far better than him.
