Chapter 42: Aftermath of the Massacre

“Haven’t you heard?”

“The Sacred Lord Beitang Ying and her twelve hall masters are all dead…”

“There is a massacre in the camps of the Scarlet Heretic Sect last night…”

“What!? Who did it?”

“Who else but the Celestial Sword Clan!!”

“Only the Celestial Sword Clan has such a deep enmity with the Scarlet Heretic Sect…”

“I have heard that Beitang Ying had recently caused Young Master Yun Xinghe to lose his face in front of the Divine Sovereign Clan…”

“No, that when you are wrong! I have heard that it is the Golden Mask Devil Goddess that did it!”

“The Golden Mask Devil Goddess? Isn’t she dead a long time ago?”

“She is a legend. A legend never dies…”

“What is the level of her martial skills? She can actually massacre all the masters of the Scarlet Heretic Sect?”

“Including Beitang Ying, that a total of thirteen supremacy level celestial experts…that is simply impossible for a single person to accomplish…”

“She must have a secret divine skill…”

“She practices the Heavenly Heretic Divine Skill…”

Since morning, news of the massacre had spread like wildfire throughout the entire Nuer Mountains!

Hundreds of celestial clans that had their camps in the Nuer Mountains had heard of this terrifying massacre and there was a sense of fear in the atmosphere as the name of the Golden Mask Devil Goddess was being spread like wildfire.

Ye Jing had also heard of the news and she was shocked to hear of Beitang Ying demise.

She immediately barged into Fan Yuqing chamber in a quiet rage and saw that she was braiding her long lusty hair, “You seemed to have already recovered your strength. Are you the one that killed Beitang Ying?”

Indeed Fan Yuqing had. When she had realized that Xiaofang had the healing focus ability, she had pretended that her inner core injuries were much more severe. On the pretense of receiving treatment, she had actually taken the opportunity to refine her spiritual inner core. Not only had she regained her peak strength but her cultivation core was even more refined than before!

Fan Yuqing smiled at herself in the mirror, not bothering to turn around to look at Ye Jing. “Since you’ve already known who I am, why even bother asking me?”

Ye Jing said coldly, “Beitang Ying may be a trash person but there is no need for you to kill her. Didn’t you say that you want to enter into seclusion? Look at what you did. Now everyone knows that the Golden Mask Devil Goddess is still around!”

Fan Yuqing scoffed softly, “This doesn’t affect my seclusion plan at all. No one knows who the Golden Mask Devil Goddess is except for you. I have thought that you should be smarter than this than to confront me.”

Ye Jing smiled coldly, “Yuqing, Yuqing. Or I should I say Fan Yuqin. With your intelligence, surely you have already suspected that I am not that gullible to believe your fairy tales. I have saved you because I’ve actually pity you in the cave.”

Fan Yuqing froze and there was a killing intent in her eyes, “Pity me? You’re not afraid that I will kill you?”

Ye Jing smiled bitterly, “I am really afraid. But if you want to take my life, I’m sure that I won’t be standing here now.”

Fan Yuqing said coldly, “Your life has to wait until my wedding to Young Master Yuan.”

Ye Jing had suddenly sat down near her and she had lowered her glances, “You are really going to marry Young Master Yuan? For real?”

Fan Yuqing said indifferently, “He is the scion of the Divine Sovereign Clan. It is any maiden wish to marry someone like him.”

Ye Jing said, “Except that you are not that someone. I am sure that you have a lot more lofty ambitions than that. Is he going to be your next victim?”

Fan Yuqing just looked away, refusing to answer her.

Ye Jing sighed softly, “Actually, I’ve expected you to be discreet and keep your identity under wrap. I never expected that you will do such a thing as that. That is the most irrational thing to do.”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “That isn’t the most irrational thing that I had ever done. The wasting of my potential that had caused me two centuries of miseries was the most irrational thing that I’ve ever done.”

Ye Jing said gently, “That and this are two totally different things. But I still don’t understand why you will do such a thing, especially when your wedding is approaching in a matter of days.”

Fan Yuqing turned to look intently at her, “What if I tell you that I hate the Scarlet Heretic Sect, will you believe me?”

Ye Jing had a surprised look, “Why is that so?”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “I have long wanted to kill Beitang Ze for his impure dual cultivation art. Before I could do that in the past, my star had fallen. Now that I have seen Beitang Ying and her entire Scarlet Heretic Sect, do you think that I will let them live a day longer?”

Ye Jing did not know what to reply to her answers. It was because her answers had astonished her. After a long silence, she said slowly. “I take back my words. You did right. It is about time that this heretic dual cultivation art were to disappear from the celestial realm.”

She got up slowly and when she reached the exit, she whispered. “I really don’t understand what kind of a person you are. Just because you hate the Scarlet Heretic Sect, you won’t even hesitate to massacre them even though you got no feud with them.”

When Ye Jing left, Fan Yuqing tilted her head and said softly to herself. “I don’t even know what kind of a person I am. I am just a bad person…”

Her eyes had suddenly flashed and she saw Xiaofang entering the room. She smiled coldly, “Didn’t your Holy Consort tell you never to visit me ever again?”

Xiaofang just stood there for a minute before he asks solemnly, “Are you the one that is responsible for last night massacre?”

Fan Yuqing hummed coldly, “You are here to admonish me?”

Xiaofang said, “You really the Golden Mask Devil Goddess…”

Then he said quietly, “So you have completely recovered. That’s good. I just have a request that I hope that you will accede to it.”

Fan Yuqing said as she stared at the mirror, not bothering to look at him. “You want me to spare Ye Jing?”

Xiaofang nodded slowly before he said firmly, “Yes!!”

Fan Yuqing rose up from the dressing table as she folded her arms, “Only if you promise to do three things for me then I will spare her life.”

Xiaofang stammered, “What three things?”

Fan Yuqing said, “I haven’t thought of it yet. Is her life not worth three things from you?”

Xiaofang said slowly, “I will not kill anyone or harm anyone for you.”

Fan Yuqing smiled wry, “Fine.”

Xiaofang was startled that she had agreed almost immediately so he said quickly, “Or any other bad things as well.”

Fan Yuqing was amused but she said, “That is fine as well.”

Xiaofang heaved a soft sigh of relief, “Then that is a promise then.”

Fan Yuqing hummed coldly, “Remember what you have promised…”

Then she saw that Xiaofang had raised his palm in front of her, “What is this?”

Xiaofang smiled, “You got to clap my hand for the promise to be effective.”

Fan Yuqing found herself raising her palm as she gently touched his palm, “This is childish you know? You are just like a kid.”

Xiaofang grinned, “I am only 17.”

Fan Yuqing was startled, “You…you are only 17?”

Xiaofang replied, “That’s right. But I’ve grown up now.”

Fan Yuqing was in disbelief, “And you are already an Immortal Celestial?”

Xiaofang answered indifferently, “That’s right.”

Fan Yuqing smiled faintly as she sat down again, “Ye Jing and you really make a good match for each other. You may go now.”

Xiaofang said, “Wait. Can Saintess Yuqing promise not to tell her about what we have said today?”

Fan Yuqing nodded slowly, “I won’t. Now go.”

Xiaofang bowed with his hands, “Thanks!” And he had left the room hurriedly.

When he had left the room, she hums a tune to herself. The tune was slow and melancholy…
