She took in Yang Guo as her apprentice when her nurse died rescuing Yang Guo from Quan Zhen Sect. Xiao Long Nu and Yang Guo found out that they love each other deeply and got married after going through several tragedies and hardships. Because of her practice of emotionless martial arts, when the couple were finally reunited, she had lost none of her unsurpassed beauty.
