Chapter 472: Seeking Confirmation On One Matter

"Why would only single men do their best?" Xiao Ning'er was still extremely puzzled.
"Ning'er, you have to think of it this way. The Heavenly Note Sect is made up entirely of female disciples. If male disciples with families entered their sect and ended up having affairs with the Heavenly Note Sect's female disciples, wouldn't that cause family strifes? That's why only single men can be sent over," said Nie Li eloquently.
"I think I get it." Xiao Ning'er's cheeks blushed slightly. Nie Li was truly adopting full measures with his solution.
If the day came when all the female disciples of the Heavenly Note Sect becoming Dao partners of the Divine Feathers Sect's male disciples, the Heavenly Note Sect would probably become a subsidiary of the Divine Feathers Sect.
"It seems that there will not be anything happening over at the Heavenly Note Sect anymore. I wonder if I should pay a visit to the other Divine Sects," muttered Nie Li to himself. If he slowly gained control of the Heavenly Note Sect, he ought to continue expanding his influence.
"Nie Li, what did you say?" Xiao Ning'er did not hear him carefully as she inquired puzzledly.
"Ning'er, I suddenly recalled that I have something I need confirmation on," said Nie Li after some thought.
"What is it?" Xiao Ning'er looked at Nie Li, clearly somewhat curious.
"It's this. I have been investigating a matter regarding the Black Devil Forest," said Nie Li.
"Is the Black Devil Forest you are referring to the Black Devil Forest southwest of Glory City?" Xiao Ning'er asked curiously. Why did Nie Li suddenly think of something that was situated so far from them?
"Yes, that Black Devil Forest." Nie Li immersed himself in his memories. Years ago, Xiao Ning'er never came back out of the Black Devil Forest after stepping in there. In his previous incarnation, Nie Li had met another woman named Xiao Ning. For some unknown reason, Xiao Ning'er had memories regarding her.
All of this might very well have to do with the Black Devil Forest.
Perhaps in his previous incarnation, Xiao Ning'er did not perish after entering Black Devil Forest. Instead, she had gone to the Draconic Ruins Realm and ended up encountering him.
Therefore, Nie Li had always felt a little indebted toward Xiao Ning'er.
"I've been to that Black Devil Forest a few times in the past," said Xiao Ning'er after she thought for a moment.
"You have gone there before? What is in there?" asked a surprised Nie Li.
"I did not enter the Black Devil Forest," said Xiao Ning'er as she shook her head. "It's just that every time I pass by the Black Devil Forest, it always feels like a voice is summoning me. I would have that strange feeling every time I'm close to the Black Devil Forest."
"What feeling is it?"
"It feels like crossing space-time itself as though I'd transformed into another person. It felt like a sad and tragic romance had happened there and every time I pass by it, my heart would be filled with sorrow and sadness." Xiao Ning'er's eyes could not help but well up.
"Transformed into another person?" Nie Li paced back and forth, muttering, "Strange. Why would there be such a feeling? Could it be that Ning'er is able to sense her previous incarnation?
"In my previous incarnation, could it be that Ning'er sensed the Black Devil Forest's summoning before proceeding into the Black Devil Forest without any hesitation?" Nie Li frowned. "If that were the case, things like fate and space-time requires some deeper thought."
"Nie Li, what are you muttering on about?" Xiao Ning'er asked in puzzlement.
"What exactly is the Temporal Demon Spirit Book. It was able to make me reincarnate, but what is the underlying principle behind this?" Nie Li frowned as he thought, "Could it be that space-time follows a cyclic structure?"
"What cyclic structure?" asked a confounded Xiao Ning'er.
"Nothing," said Nie Li as he shook his head. "Ning'er, I wish to show you something."
"What?" Xiao Ning'er asked puzzledly.
"Take off your clothes," said Nie Li in all seriousness.
"Ah, take off my clothes?" Xiao Ning'er blushed. Why would Nie Li make such a request? What was he thinking of doing? Xiao Ning'er wore an obvious look of hesitation. She looked up at Nie Li, her face burning red. "Must I take them off?"
"Yes." Nie Li nodded.
"But, but… Now isn't the appropriate time, right?" Xiao Ning'er looked up to the side. The door and windows had not been shut.
"It slipped out of my mind." Nie Li thought for a moment and looked at Ning'er's blushing cheeks when he suddenly realized that it was indeed a little inappropriate. However, he was eager to verify something. "Then I'll close the door and windows."
"Ah?" Xiao Ning'er was taken aback. She had believed that Nie Li would brush the matter off, but she had never expected him to shut the door and windows. Was Nie Li really eager to do it?
Xiao Ning'er felt like there was a little deer in her heart which was bumping around in every random direction.
Nie Li turned around to shut the door.
Bam! Bam! Bam! The door and windows were closed one after another.
"Nie Li, it's still daytime. Isn't it inappropriate?" asked Xiao Ning'er shyly. The way she lowered her head with that bashful appearance would probably prompt any man into action.
"What's inappropriate?" Nie Li asked puzzledly. "Does such things matter between us?"
Upon hearing Nie Li's words, Xiao Ning'er felt her heart speed up. That's right. From a very long time ago, her heart had already decided. She was his and no one else's. However, the rate at where things were going seemed a little too fast.
Shouldn't they do it after marriage…
The thought of marriage made Xiao Ning'er's expression darken a little. Ziyun was Nie Li's fiancée. If there was any marriage, the bride ought to be her.
Even though she would not have any official status or how she would be the target of ridicule, all she wanted was to stay by his side even if she needed to devote her everything.
Xiao Ning'er felt that since she was willing, it was likely better than waiting until he was married to Ye Ziyun.
After Nie Li closed the door and window, he came to Xiao Ning'er's side and lowered his head to look down at her. He saw her petite face raised slightly, her face tinted crimson. The crimson color resembled a blooming flower and looked excessively beautiful. Her eyes were slightly shut as her eyelashes trembled gently. It was obvious that she was experiencing upheavals.
The pink lips made him wish to kiss it.
"Ning'er, why are you closing your eyes?" Nie Li looked at Xiao Ning'er in puzzlement as he asked.
"Don't tell me… that you want my eyes opened for such things?" Xiao Ning'er had this thought in her mind as she could not help but blush embarrassed. Nie Li, what exactly do you want me to do? Xiao Ning'er's chest rose up and down rapidly.
Upon seeing Xiao Ning'er's bashful and alluring looks, Nie Li could not help but feel aroused and imagine things. After all, any man would find the scene irresistible after seeing it.
Nie Li's breathing sped up involuntarily as wishing to reach out toward Xiao Ning'er's buttons was not the only thing on his mind. Perhaps, he would no longer have such a good opportunity in the future…
