Hao Long's voice was so loud and recognizable that Luan Qing Xiao and Nie Zhen'er immediately came out from the preparation room to check on the situation after hearing it.

    “Hao Long, what's the matter?” Luan Qing Xiao asked.

    Hao Long pointed at Hu Lian, his fingers trembling slightly, “He-he actually asked how my mother is doing! My mother must have been hiding a little white face behind my back!”

    Luan Qing Xiao: “…

    Nie Zhen'er: “…

    Hu Lian explained with an innocent face, “Don't get me wrong, I just think the aura on you is very familiar to an old friend of mine.”

    Hao Long didn't care whether he was innocent or not.
He gritted his teeth, “Don't tell me your old friend is called Hao Qing?”

    Hu Lian's eyes lit up, “It turns out it's really my old friend.”

    Hao Long was angry and aggrieved.
Couldn't this little white face in front of him see that he didn't want to see him? Yet that mouth of him won’t stop blabbering about.

    “Hao Long, you go back first, I'll talk to Hu Lian.” Luan Qing Xiao said.

    Nie Zhen'er stood on tiptoe and patted Hao Long’s back, “Don't be angry, don't be angry.”

    The demon aura on Hao Long's body was way too obvious now.

    Hao Long took a deep breath and gave Hu Lian a fierce glare, “I'm going back to ask my mother exactly what is going on!”

    After speaking, he turned and left.

    Luan Qing Xiao also acted extremely strange.
She closed the door of the preparation room, leaving the three of them standing outside.

    “You know Hao Qing?”

    Yesterday Hao Qing was sure that she personally saw the scum fox burned to ashes.

    Back to Hu Lian here, the ‘Qing Qing’ he found pointed towards Hao Qing, which was really suspicious.

    Luan Qing Xiao simply asked him, saving her from wasting time because she couldn't understand what was going on through guessing.

    Hu Lian answered, “I can tell Zhen'er, but not you.”

    Hu Lian didn't know if Luan Qing Xiao knew that Nie Zhen'er was a peach tree demon, so he wouldn’t give in to her like that.

    Nie Zhen'er fluttered her almond eyes, “Teacher Hu Lian, Qing Xiao is the same as us.
She’s just better at hiding it, so you didn't detect her.”

    Hu Lian glanced at Luan Qing Xiao in surprise, “How is that possible?”

    “How could it not be possible?” Luan Qing Xiao countered, “However, it's really not convenient to discuss these things here.
Let's have lunch together at noon.”

    Hu Lian’s doubtful gaze fell on Luan Qing Xiao.
He didn't dare to believe Luan Qing Xiao's identity this easily.

    Although Nie Zhen'er spoke for her, it’s quite likely that she’d been deceived.

    What if Luan Qing Xiao was a demon hunter?

    “Hu Lian, being cautious is not a problem, but being too cautious is unmanly.
Hao Qing hates men dilly-dallying the most.” Luan Qing Xiao simply addressed Hu Lian without the word ‘Teacher’.

    “Who are you to Hao Qing?” Hu Lian asked.

    “Hao Qing is my sister.” Luan Qing Xiao said.

    Hu Lian thought for a moment, “You’re a white peacock……I see, lunch at noon it is.”

    In the morning, the five actors memorized the lines and did a simple run through of the script.
When Xu Jia Shu checked the time, it was exactly twelve o'clock.

    “We’ll assemble on the set at two o'clock this afternoon.
You’re all dismissed for lunch now.”

    Once Xu Jia Shu finished speaking, the three actors left.
Only Luan Qing Xiao, Nie Zhen'er, Hu Lian and Xu Jia Shu remained in the preparation room.

    Luan Qing Xiao said to Xu Jia Shu, “Director Xu, we have something to discuss with Hu Lian at noon, so we can't have lunch with you.”

    Xu Jia Shu was taken aback.
He wondered how Hu Lian and Luan Qing Xiao got so acquainted with each other that they would eat together.

    He nodded, “You guys go ahead, I'll go find Zhu Qing Fu and them.”

    Xu Jia Shu packed up his things and went to find Zhu Qing Neglect and Yu He Shao in the preparation room of the second group.
The students in the second group preparation room had already left, leaving only the waiting Zhu Qing Neglect and Yu He Shao.

    Seeing that he came by himself, Zhu Qing Fu peered behind him, causing Xu Jia Shu to ask, “Who are you looking for?”

    Zhu Qing Fu questioned, “Where‘s Hu Lian? Why didn’t you guys come together?”

    “Have you invited Hu Lian?” Xu Jia Shu asked.

    “Oh, I forgot.” Zhu Qing smacked his forehead with regret, “Is Hu Lian still in the preparation room? I'll go invite him over right now.”

    Xu Jia Shu shook his head, “Hu Lian has decided to have lunch with Qing Xiao and them.
You'd better wait for tomorrow.”

    “Don’t forget Qing Xiao ah.” Zhu Qing Fu really didn't want to miss the opportunity to eat with Hu Lian.

    The next few days, they’ll be extremely busy.
At most, they might eat some box lunches together on the set.
There won’t be any time to invite Hu Lian out.

    “They must have something important to talk about, so you should stay away.
Since Hu Lian has already returned to the entertainment circle, there will be more opportunities to meet in the future.
When won’t you be able to treat him to a meal? Come one, let's go, I've been hungry for a long time.” Yu He Shao urged.

    Xu Jia Shu pitched in, “They indeed have a private matter to discuss, it won’t be convenient.”

    Only then did Zhu Qing Fu dispel that idea.

    On the other side, Luan Qing Xiao’s trio found a nearby restaurant’s private room to eat and talk.

    Luan Qing Xiao went straight to the point, “What is the relationship between you and my sister Hao Qing?”

    When Hu Lian heard Hao Qing's name, his eyes filled with love.

    “Hao Qing and I met in Country C on the Earth.
With just the first glance, we fell in love with each other.”

    “Since we were both demons and have many topics in common, our love became deeper and deeper.”

    “I am the future king of the demon fox clan, but my younger brother has been coveting my successor status.
I don’t know where he learned about Qing Qing and actually wanted to threaten me with Qing Qing.”

    “Because fox demons specialize in glamour, he took advantage of the time that I returned to the clan to turn into me and deliberately found a few female fox demons to appear in front of Qing Qing in an intimate manner.
He didn't know that although Qing Qing looked soft and cute in appearance, she had an extremely violent temper.
I didn't see how Qing Qing killed my brother with my own eyes, but I overheard those female fox demons when they snitched to my mother.”

    “Qing Qing killed my brother and watched his blood drip out little by little before throwing him into the fire, burning him to ashes.”

    Hu Lian's face turned gentle, “See, Qing Qing just has such a violent temper.
My younger brother wanted to frame me, but he managed to kill himself instead.”

    “Then because my mother's most beloved child is my brother, after learning Qing Qing killed my brother, she wanted to kill Qing Qing out of rage.
And how could I let her hurt Qing Qing? So I tried to stop her.”

    “I couldn't beat my mother.
After being seriously injured by her, I fell into a coma for a long time and was expelled from the clan.
By the time I woke up, I found myself on the spaceship.

    “At the time, I was very weak and trying to conceal the demon aura on my body already used up most of my power, so my injuries couldn’t heal.”

    “It was only a hundred years after I came to Origin Star that I finally recovered myself and had the energy to find Qing Qing.”

    Nie Zhen'er asked, “Aren't you going to look for your clan and mother?”

    Hu Lian smiled bitterly, “I’ve already been expelled from the clan ah, which means my mother and my clan members have given up on me.
Even if I want to find them, it still might be impossible to find them.”
