Chapter 119: Liang Ni True Colors

<Mature content warning>

Liang Ni was in his room and he was banging a petite young celestial; she was sweating profusely and was drooling with pleasures. As for which clan that she was from and her name, he had already forgotten. This was not going to be an issue with him anyway. In a few more days, he would have drained all of her yin essences and dumped her. She was as a matter of fact his second victim.

At the moment, the petite young celestial was experiencing great pleasure and was in heaven as Liang Ni banged her behind while squeezing her perky swollen breasts.

It was easy for Liang Ni had picked her because there were many female cultivators that had wanted to hook up to him just because he was a golden celestial. By knowing him, they would have received immerse benefits and a connection in the future. But this petite cultivator did not know that Liang Ni was actually draining her vitality and wasting her cultivation core. She had only known that for the past two days, she was in heavens and she did not even want to leave his bed for even a moment. She just wanted to experience pleasures after pleasures.

Liang Ni had a dark secret. His Thirteen Extreme Body Tempering Martials had a secret fourteen cultivation art and that was to drain the yin essences of the female cultivators. He had been careful not to let Mu Huiyin knew about it for she hated the dark cultivators. But still, that did not stop him from secretly using it on her. The yin essence of a saintess was indeed nourishing for him and he just needed a little each day.

But once Mu Huiyin had refused to see him, he was forced to look around for replacements. He had quickly found one in a matter of days and the poor female cultivator did not even know how she had died. Now he had found his second target.

These two female cultivators may be inner court protégés but their cultivation level was only at the Enlighten Celestial level and was too weak to nourish him fully.

Two days earlier, the petite cultivator had chanced upon Liang Ni and after a quick chat, she was delighted that Liang Ni had offered to improve her cultivation level.

Liang Ni was now quite famous or rather infamous. Even this petite cultivator had heard that there were two saintess that were fighting over him. Therefore she was quite flattered that he had an eye for her.

But what she did not expected was that for the next two days, she found herself wishing that she could be with Liang Ni forever. She had totally forgotten who she was and where she was from. Even until now, she did not think that she would be this bold and so carnal in her desires but there were no regrets in her eyes.

Liang Ni thoughts were however more warped. He was just bent on draining her yin essence and lamenting that this petite cultivator’s yin essence was too impure and too little. As he happily refreshed to the scene that day when he touched Saintess Yuqing’s butt, his experienced hands could immediately feel that she did not have her panties on and he was aroused from touching her curved and soft…

When he had refreshed to this point, he was banging the petite cultivator so hard that she was moaning and screaming as he ripped through to her. Suddenly she had stopped moaning and was foaming as her pupils turned white…

Liang Ni sighed pitifully, “She is dead so fast. I’ve thought that she may last another two more days.”

Now he had to look for another.

He smiled bitterly when he had thought of Saintess Yuqing. Until now, she was still so elusive and he could not lay his hands on her.

“It is so pointless to look for low level cultivators to nourish my cultivation art…all the remaining saintess are so formidable…”

All of a sudden he was smiling wickedly. “Didn’t Xuan Danfeng just overcome her lightning tribulation just a day ago?” He was thinking that it was not possible for her to regain her strength so quickly and she was an easy target for him to aim for. Moreover she looked like a slut and he wondered how flirty she would be when they copulated.

Smiling to himself, Liang Ni had already decided who his next target was now…

Therefore he quickly wrapped the dead maiden in a blanket before throwing her down the misty cliffs below.

He was not afraid at all. Although he was only a peaked golden celestial but his strength was equivalent to an intermediate sacred saint.

Therefore he had decided to make his move this very night, which was now.

It did not take him long to reach the guest palace that was used to host the Lofty Snow Palace and her allies.

It was not difficult to identify which were the buildings that were used by the protégés of the Lofty Snow Palace. As the top tier celestial clan among the twenty celestial clans that were there, the place that emanated the strongest celestial aura was obviously where the protégés of the Lofty Snow Palace was.

He got lucky.

Because the first person that he saw in the inner courts was Xuan Danfeng and she was alone. She was walking in a tipsy manner, having just finished attending the banquet that was held in her honor.

When Liang Ni caught sight of her, he was immediately aroused for she was dressed in a revealing and flimsy dress. The front of her cleavages was exposed and the gown had openings that revealed her silky white thighs.

Just the thought of banging this number one socialite already made him hard and he silently made his way to her back view…

Xuan Danfeng was still tipsy as she muttered almost incoherently, “Where am I? Why…did I…come to Ye Jing’s place…”

All of a sudden a big towering masked man had violently struck her on her back and he had violently torn her gown from her body, stripping her completely naked.

Liang Ni was pleasantly pleased that other than the gown that he had just grabbed, there was nothing else that was on Xuan Danfeng and he had a good view of her body.

Xuan Danfeng coughed out weakly after she had been attacked but that did not stop her from retaliating as she quickly made a quick turn and dished out a strike against her assailant, “Who…are…you…Liang Ni…”

Although Liang Ni was masked but there was something that he could not mask and that was his towering and well-built physique that was too easily recognizable.

But Xuan Danfeng’s strikes were like gentle tickle to Liang Ni as he smirked coldly, “Do you think with your current strength, you are able to stop me?” He had grabbed both her wrists with one hand and lifted her from the ground. His other hand was squeezing her huge breasts as he admired her full sexy body. “Tonight I will bang you and show you pleasures that you will always remember…”

Then he pulled the mask off his face as he started to salivate over her soft sensual body even as Xuan Danfeng was screaming and kicking him hard…

Xuan Danfeng could not believe that she would fall victim today to this vile person and as she attempted a louder scream, Liang Ni other hand was on her throat immediately.

“If you make more noises then I will have to silence you. You wouldn’t want anyone to find your dead and naked body in the next morning, am I right…”

But Liang Ni did not even have the time to finish his sentence when an extremely beautiful maiden had flashed next to him with a long beaming sword and struck him hard.

Liang Ni was startled and he quickly took several steps back to avoid her sword attacks. He was supposed to be impervious to most physical attacks but the sword that was in this unknown maiden’s hand was able to wound him!

Xuan Danfeng gasped out, “Nanyan, you are here? You’re not his match…quickly flee and call for help…”

The extremely beautiful maiden was indeed Gong Nanyan. In her panicky haste to rescue her protégé mistress, she had unsheathed the Lofty Snow Divine Sword. This divine sword was a gift from Xuan Danfeng to her and only the successors of the Lofty Snow Palace would be fit to carry this divine sword.

It was because Xuan Danfeng already had the intention to hand over the Palace Mistress to Gong Nanyan in the future.

Xuan Danfeng had quickly taken out a divine sword from her spatial ring as she struggled to stand weakly in Gong Nanyan’s arms.

Liang Ni was aroused when he saw that it was another beautiful maiden that had appeared. Although he did not know who she was but it did not matter to him at all. It was because she had only the cultivation level of an intermediate golden celestial and she posed no threat to him at all.

He quickly mustered his formidable aura and increased his martial strength. In this way, even if she had a formidable divine sword that was in her hands, it was just a toy in his eyes.

Liang Ni laughed lustfully, “It seems that today I will have two wonderful maidens to bed…”

He had suddenly attacked the newly arrival maiden with his formidable fists that were filled with his martial power but to his astonishment, in a blink of an eye she had evaded a dozen of his fists and had even struck him backward thrice!

He had really underestimated the evasive skills of the Lofty Snow Palace which was actually renowned in the entire fraternity as an epitome martial art.

But the gauge between them was too great and Liang Ni was an experienced fighter. In just a few moves, he was already familiar with her martial movements and he knew that he could get her within the next twenty moves…

Just as he was about to make his next attack and had just leapt forward, a flying sword had struck him out of the blue, sending him to fly backward against the wall with a tremendous impact!

Liang Ni coughed out blood as he struggled to stand and he was shaking with disbelief. There was no force that could possible move him in this manner after he had mustered his full martial force. Just as he focused his eyes to see who his attacker was, a thin lad had suddenly raised the immortal sword that was his hand and pierce through his chest with an overpowering thrust…

But still he was a peaked golden celestial and it was not easy to kill a golden celestial even if his body got pierced. But all of a sudden Liang Ni was convulsing as though his soul had been pierced and his spiritual sea was being drained by the immortal sword.

He was immediately panicky but it was already too late as he feebly tried to knock Xiaofang aside but he had immediately turned pale…

The thin lad was Xiaofang and the flying sword that had struck Liang Ni earlier was the same immortal sword that was in Xiaofang’s hand.

Although Xiaofang was only an intermediate golden celestial but the pureness of his strength and talent had given him the strength of a peaked golden celestial. Moreover he had already unblocked his accupoints to the Earth Divinity, enabling his strength to double. This added up his strength to the initial sacred saint level. Also the immortal sword that was in his hands was a heaven-step immortal sword and he had completely divine harmonized with it.

And when Xiaofang had thrust his immortal sword through Liang Ni’s chest, he had used all his martial strength to display the Lofty Empyrean Sword Energies in a flash. This divine skill coupled with the immortal sword that was in Xiaofang’s hand immediately propelled his martial strength to the peak of the sacred saint level.

And this time, Xiaofang did not hesitate to use his full strength because he clearly saw that Xuan Danfeng and Gong Nanyan were in a precautious situation.

Xiaofang was startled that the fight was over this fast as he muttered, “Huh? Why didn’t he dodge or parry?”

Xuan Danfeng immediately said weakly, “Thank you Xiaofang. This Liang Ni fellow is too dependable on his strong body to ward off attacks. His reactions are not as nimble as the rest. Should your attack fail then you will be dead for sure. Luckily you are able to strike him hard enough twice. Moreover you are using the Lofty Empyrean Sword Energies, an extreme negative sword energies art. Against his extreme positive body, it is quite fatal for him if it does pierce through into his spiritual sea.”

Xiaofang had turned around to nod when he saw the beautiful body of Xuan Danfeng. Immediately his nose was bleeding and he was reddened…

Xuan Danfeng was still tipsy and had forgotten that she had nothing on, “Alas, Xiaofang. Why are you looking at me like this? Do you think that I am beautiful?”

Gong Nanyan panicky looked around for Xuan Danfeng’s clothing but all she could find was a tattered gown…

Xiaofang weakly said as he continued to stare at her, “Erm, I am just thinking what we shall do with his body now…”

Xuan Danfeng chuckled softly, “Just throw it off the cliff.”

In the meantime, Gong Nanyan was panicky taking off her outer garment as she tried to cover Xuan Danfeng…

Chapter 118: Xuan Danfeng Banquet

Barely one day had passed and Xuan Danfeng was now hosting a mini banquet at the guest palace for the clan leaders and their elite protégés that were under the domain of the Lofty Snow Palace.

At first she had declined to host the banquet because she was still fragile and there was an upcoming battle with the Devil Isle that would take place soon.

However, the clan leaders that were in her domain strongly insisted on a commemorate event to honor her and would not take no for an answer.

“It has been ages since our domain has a great saintess. We should celebrate no matter what…”

“There is no doubt that with Palace Mistress Danfeng as a great saintess now, our domain is now firmly at the top of the middle-tier patriarch clan…”

“Palace Mistress Xuan Danfeng is not only beautiful but she is also amazing. She has actually attracted the nine-stage lightning tribulation and had overcome it to become a great saintess…”

“Of course she is amazing. That is why she is able to attract the nine-stage lightning tribulation…”

“Even the two great saints from the two top tier patriarch clans didn’t even attract the nine-stage lightning tribulation…”

“Haha, I am sure that Lin Wucheng and Tang Yiren must be so envious of our Xuan Danfeng…”

“Xuan Danfeng is now our goddess…hehehe…”

Xuan Danfeng was dressed in a beautiful gown that showed her assets. Although she looked frail, she was still as beautiful as ever. She had purposely worn a revealing gown that showed her frontal cleavages so that her lecherous followers would have a feast for their eyes.

As she entered the hallway, the protégés of the Lofty Snow Palace immediately greeted her excitingly. Behind her were her three direct disciples, Song Feixian, Xu Wenping and Wan’Er.

Immediately all the clan leaders were all staring at her busty cleavage that threatened to bust out anytime and they were enjoying it every moment of it especially when Xuan Danfeng would sway now and then.

Of course Xuan Danfeng was now flirting with them and they knew it. Most of the clan leaders here were her old acquaintances. They did not dare to get too close and personal to her lest they would get a death wish from the others. Still, they were enjoying themselves tremendous and they knew that Xuan Danfeng had dressed herself up for them.

One of the clan leaders immediately shouted excitingly, “Palace Mistress Danfeng is here…”

All the clan leaders and elite protégés of the various celestial clans were all rushing forward to greet her excitingly.

“Danfeng, are you well?”

“You look frail but extremely beautiful…”

“To me, you are the most beautiful maiden in the Nine Celestial Fraternity. No others can compare to you…” An old clan leader smiled with fond memories.

“Congrats on your ascension as a Great Saintess…”

“Hoho,” an old clan leader laughed jovially. “It seems that from today onward, we have to address our Saintess Danfeng as Great Saintess Danfeng now…”

Another clan leader laughed jovially as he clapped his hands, “That’s right, that is so true! From now onward, we ought to address her as Great Saintess Danfeng…”

Usually it was considered impolite to address the name of a respected senior directly, especially someone who was at a higher position or hierarchy. However all these clan leaders had known Xuan Danfeng very well and they were all calling her by her name.

Xuan Danfeng forced a faint smile, “Fellow celestial cultivators, Danfeng is so happy to see all of you. Alas, I am still so weak and have almost perished. So please pardon me if I don’t have any strength to chat with everyone.”

A ruddy clan leader smiled excitingly, “Not at all! We’re really so happy to see you. Even if you are unable to talk to us, we will still be so happy. Hehehe.”

“That’s right. Danfeng, quickly tell us how you overcome the lightning tribulation. We are so eager to hear from you. Hehehe…”

Twenty clan leaders and forty elite cultivators from the various celestial clans had gathered around Xuan Danfeng and were shoving each other to be as close as possible to her…

Song Feixian quietly glanced at Xu Wenping and Wan’Er. They had no idea what had happened last night. When they saw the lightning tribulation, their first thought was that it may be their protégé mistress that was undergoing the lightning tempering in order to transcend into a great saintess. However they could not find her anywhere…

It was only when the lightning tribulation was over that they saw Gong Nanyan carrying their unconscious protégé mistress into her room.

They were startled because they had not known that Gong Nanyan had come to the Unmoving Mountains…

Gong Nanyan said quietly, “Please don’t let the others know that you have seen me. Protégé mistress has hidden me from view because I have made some enemies that are from the other patriarch clans. Our protégé mistress has just overcome her lightning tribulation and she is terribly weak. I will like to accompany her for the night…”

Chapter 117: Ancient immortal artefacts

Feng Minyue said quietly to Xiaofang, “She is inside…” With a sorrowful expression, Feng Minyue sighed softly before she departed.

As she departed and walked into the inner court, she saw that Su Shanyue was looking with a flustered manner when they bumped into each other.

Su Shanyue seemed to have put on two extra beautiful hairpins and her makeup was also scented.

She asked gently, “Little protégé sister, where are you going? You look so flustered? Why are you dress up so pretty for?”

Su Shanyue shifted her eyes and stammered, “Nothing. It is just that Tang Yiren from the Celestial Sword Clan has just become a great saint. Grandmaster Yun Xinghe has invited me to attend a small banquet that is held in his honor. Actually…I didn’t want to go. I am just going there to cause a little trouble for him. As you know, he has been making noises at our gates for two weeks now. If I don’t teach him a lesson then he will think that the Heavenly Fragrance Villa is a clan that he can bully…”

Then she smiled awkwardly, “Alas, senior sister…I’m running late…after I’ve taught him a lesson then I will share with you tonight. Alright? See you later…” With that, she had run off in a hurry.

Feng Minyue was startled. It was obvious that Su Shanyue did not speak the whole truth…

“What is going on here?”

The truth was that after two weeks of constant bickering, Yun Xinghe and Su Shanyue found that they had taken a liking to each other. By then, Yun Xinghe knew that chasing after Saintess Yuqing was an impossible dream that was difficult to attain for their cultivation level difference was too vast. And the more he looked at Su Shanyue, the more that he felt she was attractive and was enticing.

As for Su Shanyue, at first she had found Yun Xinghe to be quite dense and loathing. It was because he would come every day and was insistent on seeing Saintess Yuqing even though she had kindly informed him that Saintess Yuqing was not available to see him.

But one day when Yun Xinghe did not turn up, she found herself standing at the gate waiting for him to come so that she could scold him. But he never turned up…

It was only then that she realized that this unlikeable Yun Xinghe had a place in her heart by now…

Today Yun Xinghe had invited only her to attend the small banquet that was hosted by the Celestial Sword Clan and that was why she had specially dressed up to attend the function.

As for teaching Yun Xinghe a lesson, it was a lame excuse that she had cooked up so that her senior sister would not suspect anything…

At this moment, Xiaofang was standing at the door. He hesitated for some time before he mustered the courage to knock, “Xiaofang here. I’m here to see you.”

There was a slight movement in the room before the soft and mesmerizing voice of Fan Yuqing could be heard saying, “Come in.”

As Xiaofang opened the door and stepped into the room, he saw that the room was scented with a heavenly fragrance and there were many pink curtains.

“You can come closer.” Fan Yuqing said gently behind the curtains.

As Xiaofang pulled the curtains and entered, he saw that Fan Yuqing was sitting upright in her bed. She was looking awfully pale and her eyes were red.

Xiaofang was startled. It looked like she had been crying?

Indeed she had been crying until Xiaofang knocked on her door. It was because she knew that Dongfang Jun was no longer in the world anymore. She did not need Ye Jing to tell her what had happened.

When Ye Jing had told her that the celestial painting was Dongfang Jun’s last gift to her, she had already guessed what happened. The reason why Ye Jing did not tell her directly was because she did not want her to be sad and was trying to keep a hope alive for her.

Xiaofang said as he took out a pill from his pouch, “This is the Dragon Vitality Spirit Pill that is from your aunt. She asks me to give it to you.”

Fan Yuqing quietly took the pill but she did not consume it immediately. Instead, she grasped it within her fingers as she said gently. “Thank you.”

Xiaofang heaved a soft sigh, “I should be the one that should say thank you. If it is not for you, Jing’Er will no longer be here anymore.”

Fan Yuqing lowered her glances, “No, it is actually all my fault for trying to be a busybody. I’ve almost killed her instead.”

Xiaofang smiled weakly, “She asks me to say thank you to you and she doesn’t blame you at all. Well, it is all over now. Are…you really alright?”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “Hmph, it seems that I will be out of commission for a while and won’t be able to help with the upcoming battle.”

Xiaofang nodded, “Is that so? Don’t worry. I will take it over from here.”

Fan Yuqing turned and look at him with an intense expression, “You…” Then she smiled wryly, “Don’t be a dead hero. It never pays to be a hero.”

Xiaofang grinned, “Well, I have to fight because I gonna protect Jing’Er and Nanyan from harm. Even though I am not a saint cultivator but I am good with the sword and I’m younger and have more energy than those old cultivators from the Devil Isle.”

Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “You can’t even beat me. How do you beat those folks from the Devil Isle?”

Xiaofang smiled, “Why should I want to beat you? You’re not my enemy.”

Fan Yuqing looked away, “Then I’m a friend to you?”

Xiaofang nodded and grinned, “Yes, a good friend. You’ve taught me many new things while we are at the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. Moreover, you have helped me to attain the Earth Divinity. I won’t be as strong as now without your help.”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “Have you ever considered that we can be more than friends someday?”

Xiaofang was startled by her question but he did not want to lie to her. He sighed heavily, “I got only two arms. My arms are for Jing’Er and Nanyan. I don’t have three arms.”

In the celestial fraternity, it was common for many to take two consorts; a main and a secondary consort. And Xiaofang had already found his main and secondary consort.

However, it was also not so uncommon for men to take three or more consorts. But this was something that Fan Yuqing had no illusions about. She had merely asked to probe his thoughts.

Fan Yuqing nodded quietly, “Is that so…” Without a doubt, Xiaofang had rejected her again.

Xiaofang said quietly, “You are probably the most beautiful maiden that I’ve ever known. Surely you have no lack of suitors in the future.”

Fan Yuqing lowered her glances, “You are lying. If I am the most beautiful maiden in your eyes, why didn’t you fall for me? Don’t all men like beautiful women?”

Xiaofang replied awkwardly, “I’m sure all men like beautiful women. But Jing’Er and I have many things in common and we can talk freely. She is silly sometimes and so do I. I have the same thing with Nanyan. They are both bold maidens that I like very much.”

He paused with a soft sigh, “But with you, your presence always overwhelm me and I…”

Fan Yuqing interrupted softly but there was no emotions from her countenance, “With me, you feel intimidated.”

“No, you are a noble lady. I just feel that we are two worlds apart.” Xiaofang mustered his courage to say.

Fan Yuqing gave a gently smile, “I…understand…now.”

Xiaofang smiled weakly and said, “Thank you for understanding. I shall take my leave now.”

Fan Yuqing raised her voice a little as she said, “Wait…”

Then she looked quietly at Xiaofang, “What if one day I am willing to lower myself. When that day comes, will you be willing to accept me then?”

Xiaofang did not say anything. He looked back for a glance at her before he turning away…

Fan Yuqing lowered her glances and her heart was filled with disappointment…

Her lips slowly moved as she muttered, “Dongfang Jun…”

All of a sudden there was another knock.

She was startled as she thought, “Is Xiaofang? He comes back because he still wants to talk with me?”

“It’s your Uncle Huan. May I come in for a while?”

She was a little disappointed and said slowly, “Come…in…”

It was her Uncle Huan the Celestial Liege.

When she saw him, she gently nodded and said, “Thank you. I know that you have expended your life energies to revive me.”

The Celestial Liege smiled, “Niece Yuqin, we are only too glad that you are well.”

Then he sighed softly before he said, “After so many years have passed, I hope that you can forgive us. We are so wrong back then.”

Then he took out a scroll and a flute, “The Primordial Heaven Chart and the Tranquil Flute are two of the three ancient immortal artefacts that the Jade Emperor left behind to us before he returned to the immortal realm. The third ancient immortal artefact is the Eternal Lotus and it is given to Yi Si. Today, we are giving these two immortal artefacts to you.”

Fan Yuqing looked up with a perplexed look, “Why should you leave something so precious for me? And there are two of them?”

The Celestial Liege said quietly, “Each one of the ancient immortal artefacts that the Jade Emperor had left behind for us has their own unique powers. Take the Tranquil Flute for example, it can hasten your spirit strength recovery by a hundred times faster and can aid cultivation breakthroughs. As for the Primordial Heaven Chart, you can use it to find transmigrate souls if your cultivation level is high enough. Meaning…”

Fan Yuqing interrupted with a soft gasp, “I can find Dongfang Jun reincarnation?”

The Celestial Liege nodded as he placed the two ancient immortal artefacts into her hands, “While it is quite impossible to actually find someone with just the Primordial Heaven Chart alone but if you have the Tranquil Flute to aid you, your search will be a lot easier.”

Then he said, “I hope that we can make amends to you…”

Fan Yuqing sighed quietly, “Thank you…”

Then she said quietly, “The reason why I had left home isn’t really because of Dongfang Jun. It is because I’ve overheard that the dark descendant will take place in the near future. I…want to do something about it.”

The Celestial Liege was startled, “You knew…”

Chapter 116: The Ascend Divinity

Ye Jing was sobbing and was inconsolable in her room. In her hands were the remnants of the Lofty Wind Mountains Painting and she was holding onto these fragments as she sobbed uncontrollably.

The final lightning strike had almost killed them all. They would have all been killed if not for the last reserve of the pure spiritual force that was within the Lofty Wind Mountains Painting. It was not wrong to say that the final lightning had actually killed them, destroyed their meridians and voided their entire spiritual seas.

But because of the rich and pure spiritual force that was created when the Loft Wind Mountains Painting was destroyed, they managed to hold onto life and were barely revived.

Xiaofang was alone with Ye Jing as he watched her quietly before he said, “Jing’Er, you keep calling out his name. Who is this Dongfang Jun…”

Ye Jing hid her face in her arms as she continued to sob while saying, “Xiaofang, there is something that you must know…two months ago, I married a man by the name of Dongfang Jun…this celestial painting is his last gift to me. He is no longer living now. I may have married him because I pity him but he is really a nice man. This celestial painting has kept his memories alive for me…”

“Xiaofang, do you blame me or hate me because I have married someone else?”

Xiaofang looked quietly at Ye Jing as he shook his head, “No, I don’t. I am just curious why this celestial painting is so important to you. Now I know why and that is enough.”

He lowered his glances and added, “This Dongfang Jun must really be a nice person for you to care so much for him.”

Ye Jing cried softly, “He is a gentleman and he uses his life to protect his clan…”

Xiaofang nodded and tried to cheer her up, “Jing’Er, you are a Great Saintess now. You should cheer up. After all, you are alive now and it is all thanks to Dongfang Jun’s last gift to you. He wants you to live well. I am sure that it is really what he wants and he won’t want to see you in this manner.”

Ye Jing slowly nodded as she looked at him, “You’re not upset with me?”

Then she smiled weakly, “You should go and take a look at Fan Yuqing. She took the last hit for all of us. Even if she did not die, her injuries won’t be light. Moreover, she doesn’t have any friends except for Feng Minyue.”

Xiaofang said quietly, “I think I should stay here to accompany you for a while…”

Ye Jing shook her head, “I will be alright after a while. Why are you so dense? Go find her and say something nice to her. Tell her I don’t blame her and help me to thank her for saving my life…”

Xiaofang slowly got up and said, “Alright then…”

The Confession Lady had just come into the room just as Xiaofang was leaving. She asked with a startled expression, “Xiaofang, you are leaving so soon?”

Xiaofang nodded, “I am going to see Fan Yuqing and to thank her…”

The Confession Lady quickly stopped him and said, “This is the Dragon Vitality Spirit Pill. Please give it to her.”

Xiaofang asked, “What if she don’t take it?”

The Confession Lady smiled as she put the pill into Xiaofang’s hand, “Although she doesn’t like to take things from us but she will surely take this pill. Trust me. Hurry now.”

Xiaofang nodded and left the room.

The Confession Lady was at Ye Jing side as she said gently, “Jing’Er, please take this Dragon Vitality Spirit Pill as well. This pill will aid your recovery. You will be able to get back 10-20% of your spirit strength back.”

Ye Jing eyes were still wet as she eyed the pill with a startled expression, “This…this is indeed a miracle pill.”

With her spirit veins currently in such a weak condition, it would take her a few months just to recover 10% of her spirit strength.

The Confession Lady smiled, “Indeed. These divine pills can cost tens of thousands gold coins in the black market. It is not easy to get and we have some for emergencies. Now we will give it to you.”

Ye Jing took the divine pill with trembling fingers as she said, “Thank you god-mother…”

Then she put the divine pill into her mouth as she chewed, “How is Yuqing? Is she fine?”

The Confession Lady sighed heavily, “Her injuries are more severe than we’ve expected. When we had found her, we thought that her star had already fallen. Just as we had already given up all hopes, she muttered a man’s name and there was a vital life. We use that short window to transfer our life energies to revive her.”

Ye Jing was startled, “You transfer your life energies to her?”

When a celestial burnt their life energies, it would take them some time to naturally recover and sometime this could mean a long time for some of the cultivators!

The Confession Lady nodded, “The Celestial Liege and I both used thirty percent of our vital life energies. Our celestial strength has dropped to the initial sacred saint level and we won’t be recovering anytime soon. But our efforts are not in vain since Yuqing has managed to pull through. We are only too glad to be able to help her.”

Ye Jing nodded slowly, “I really don’t know how to repay her this time. She has already repaid me more than enough for saving her in the gorge.”

The Confession Lady nodded with an uneasy look before she said gently, “Jing’Er, I go out first. Please take a good rest. I will be back to see you later.”

Ye Jing nodded and her eyes sunk back into her arms again…

When the Confession Lady had left the room, Ye Jing raised her head and moved her fingers.

Slowly, her immortal sword had materialized into her hands as she gripped it tightly. “Thank you too for saving my life…”

This time, she felt that her connection to her sword was perfect and she had indeed achieved oneness with her sword and had successfully divine harmonized with it.

As she watched her haggard self onto the reflection of her sword blade, her gray eyes had suddenly returned to a brilliant golden. This startled her as she gasped, “Don’t tell me that I have overcome the Crisis Divinity and had now breakthrough to the Ascend Divinity? I’m a double golden celestial now?…”

This was something that she had not thought possible when she started to cultivate the mundane celestial practice. Although her Celestial Teacher Yi Si had told her that since she was already a celestial, her cultivation speed with the mundane celestial practice would be rapid but she had never expected that she had actually reached the peak of the mundane celestial practice within a year time.

The Ascend Divinity is a special state of divinity. There is no initial, intermediate or late stage to the Divinity. The meaning of Ascend 大乘 refers to the enlightenment of the cultivator in attaining as a golden celestial and can ascend. Since Ye Jing is already in the celestial realm, there is no need for her to complete this ascension. However, attaining to the Ascend Divinity means that she can now merge her newly attained divinity with her sacred saint level as a double golden celestial.

Ye Jing was trembling, “This lightning tribulation has nearly killed me but it also helps me to overcome my late stage of my Crisis Divinity…”

Chapter 115: Lightning Tribulation (3)

A large purple streak of lightning had flashed onto Fan Yuqing with a thunderous bloom as she raised her hands to receive the full blast of the lightning. At the same time, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng had also cried out loud as the full force of the lightning rippled through them, threatening to rip their very souls to pieces!

Fan Yuqing, Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing were all trembling with the aftershocks of the lightning blast as they attempted to recover their wits…

Ye Jing said weakly, “Guess that we have just managed to survive the second lightning. Seven more to go…”

Xuan Danfeng nodded. Her fingers were trembling as she popped in a vitality pill while Fan Yuqing was looking extremely pale as she grasped tightly the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth.

Ye Jing tenderly touched Fan Yuqing’s hand and asked gently, “Are you alright? You really don’t look so well.”

Fan Yuqing closed her eyes and said, “I’m alright. You have better focused on your own survival first.”

Ye Jing nodded weakly as she popped a pill before she said, “Sisters, I still have some high grade soul stones here to replenish our spiritual force…”

Fan Yuqing quietly grabbed one of the high grade soul stones before she closed her eyes once more to recuperate from her injuries. It was because she knew that she had to recuperate faster than the lightning attacks or else she would not be able to survive this lightning tribulation.

Soon, the third, fourth, fifth and sixth purple lightning had descended and a hole that was 3m deep had appeared where Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were and they were all lying on the ground now…

Even the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth had cracked under the pressure of the continuous lightning strikes. The only thing that was unaffected by the lightning strikes was Ye Jing’s immortal sword.

Up on the slope of the mountains, Xiaofang could barely watch anymore; he was trembling and hating himself that he was unable to help. He had wanted to rush down the mountain slope but the Celestial Liege warned him of the consequences of distracting them.

“There is nothing we can do now except to observe.” He warned Xiaofang.

The seventh purple lightning had burst from the dark heavens like a furious coiling dragon and was now flashing to the ground below where Fan Yuqing, Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing were.

Fan Yuqing quickly mustered all her strength to stand up as she raised her palm to receive the full fury of the sixth purple lightning as she coughed out blood before she was slammed in a circle onto the ground while Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were scattered around the newly created pit as they coughed out a few mouthful of blood.

As they all landed simultaneous on the ground, the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth had also scattered into hundreds of fragments…

Ye Jing smiled weakly with her face on the ground, “The horn is gone now…so are all our soul stones…”

Xuan Danfeng was convulsing on the ground as she struggled to eat the pill that was in her fingers but the lightning had left her upper body paralyzed…

Fan Yuqing was lying on the ground and her breathing was extremely weak, “We…have taken so many divine pills already. These pills do not have any effect anymore…”

She closed her eyes and said, “Sister Jing, Sister Danfeng….I’m sorry. I’ve thought that we’re able to pull through this. But in the end…I am just so weak…and my haughtiness has even cost you your lives…”

Ye Jing muttered, “You…are not…weak. You are taking twice the hits as us…we’re actually…not bad…at all, we have managed to survive until now.”

Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly, “At least, we…can still chat…for five minutes more…any last wishes?…”

Ye Jing said weakly, “…Sister Yuqing…I’ve a secret to tell you…I actually do not trust you or like you when we have first met…”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “Is this…even a secret?”

Ye Jing grinned weakly, “I like you when we’re in the…Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth…I wish that… journey has not ended so fast…”

Fan Yuqing smiled quietly, “Is that so…”

Ye Jing gasped weakly as she coughed out another mouthful of blood, “I…have…another secret…that I want to tell you…”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “I thought…you just say you only have one secret…and now you have…another secret?”

“That one…doesn’t count since you…have already known. This one…is a real…secret….do you remember Dongfang Jun? I’ve met him and…”

Fan Yuqing was jolted and she gasped weakly, “What about him?…”

Ye Jing smiled and said weakly, “If we survive the next lightning then…I will tell you…alright?…the next wave of lightning…is starting soon…”

The entire dark heavens were now arcing with purple lightning and the mountains were shaking with the sounds of thunders.

Rumble! Boom!

An explosive purple lightning had descended once more against them!

Fan Yuqing mustered all her entire strength as she struggled to stand but the most she could manage was only to her knees as she raised her palm upward to receive the eighth purple lightning, “Ye…Jing! Don’t die…and don’t forget to tell me…”

The ground below them had sunk another 1m and the earth was sent flying all around them in a huge explosive impact. Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were all sent flying and rolling on the ground…

After a few pauses, Fan Yuqing struggled to stand but instead she was crawling toward the motionless Ye Jing, “Ye Jing, don’t…die! What…about…Dongfang Jun…you promise…to tell me…about him…”

When she had crawled to Ye Jing, she called out weakly. “Wake….up…please…” Upon seeing that Ye Jing was motionless and did not respond, she slapped her gently on the face. “You badass maiden…you promise to tell me about Dongfang Jun…”

At this moment Xuan Danfeng was aroused by Yuqing panicky calls for Ye Jing. She did not even have the strength to open her eyes as she muttered weakly, “I heard your voice…is Ye Jing…still there…”

Fan Yuqing slapped Ye Jing’s cheek a little harder, “You are a golden celestial as well as a saintess now. You…can’t die like this…”

The tribulation lightning had voided Ye Jing’s entire spiritual sea and all her meridians were dead. That was why Ye Jing were no longer responding. A golden celestial may have superb regeneration ability but without spiritual force, regeneration was not possible; the tribulation lightning had severed Ye Jing’s meridians and voided her spiritual sea, making regeneration nearly impossible as regeneration depended on spiritual force and the meridians as its conduit.

Xuan Danfeng muttered weakly, “Yuqing…I don’t think I can make it to the very last…thank you…I happy to know you as a friend as well as a sister…”

Fan Yuqing coughed weakly, “We will make it. Try to be strong…don’t take the lead from Ye Jing…she is so useless…”

All of a sudden Fan Yuqing froze as she sensed a strong spiritual force that was within Ye Jing. Without thinking, she had reached into Ye Jing’s spatial space and took out a folded painting, “This scroll, why does this painting have so much spiritual force within it?”

Without thinking, she had spread out the celestial painting and an outflowing of strong spiritual force quickly enveloped the pit.

Xuan Danfeng was revived by the spiritual force and she managed to open one eye weakly, “What is this? Did…a miracle just happen…”

Even Ye Jing was revived by the strong surge of spiritual force…

Ye Jing was suddenly convulsing weakly as she grabbed Fan Yuqing weakly, “Please…this…painting is more valuable…than my life. It is Dongfang Jun…last gift to me…if you use it here, it will be destroyed…”

Fan Yuqing was startled but after a moment thought, she said weakly. “If we all die here then Dongfang Jun won’t be happy…”

She sighed quietly as she looked at the celestial painting. Through it, she could sense Dongfang Jun’s aura. He must have spent many years meditating and cultivating with this celestial painting…

Mustering whatever strength she could, she tried to absorb as much spiritual force as possible while saying. “Your spiritual sea is already voided of any spiritual force and you are unable to absorb any now. Only this celestial painting will be able to save us…”

Then she knocked Ye Jing to sleep. Afterward she crawled to Ye Jing’s immortal sword as she spat her blood on it before gripping the sword up to the heavens…

Xuan Danfeng was startled as she coughed out, “Yuqing, no wait…are you thinking of drawing the lightning entirely onto yourself?”

“Come, this is the ninth lightning strike already…” Fan Yuqing muttered as she attempted to stand.

Heavy downpour and strong winds began to descend…

Finally the last purple lightning streaked across the heavens, gathering strength and with a mighty thunderous rumble, it flashed down upon the tip of the immortal sword and Fan Yuqing screamed out loud as brilliant light surrounded her…

This last lightning bolt was actually more powerful than the first eight lightning and the entire vicinity exploded with its fury as the mountains shook violently.

Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, the Celestial Liege, the Confession Lady and the rest who had a bird eye view could only see a burst of purple light exploding into the pit where Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were and the entire vicinity was now carpeted with thick smog…

Without saying a word, Xiaofang had dashed down the mountains!

He was quickly followed by Gong Nanyan, the Celestial Liege, the Confession Lady, Chu Yunfeng, Luo Bihua and Li’Er.

Even Beitang Ying was rushing down the mountains after she had recovered from her shock of witnessing the nine-stage tribulations…

Xiaofang was bleary as he shouted for Ye Jing amidst the heavy downpour and the strong howling winds…

“Jing’Er, you will be alright. Please be alright…”

Elsewhere there were excited shouts as the news quickly spread that Lin Wucheng and Tang Yiren had both successful overcome their lightning tribulations and were both Great Saint now…

Chapter 114: Lightning Tribulation (2)

When Fan Yuqing arrived at Ye Jing’s place, Xiaofang, Chu Yunfeng, Luo Bihua and Li’Er had also arrived and they were all gathering nervously around Ye Jing.

Ye Jing was heard panicking asking them, “What should I do? This is my first time…”

Fan Yuqing sighed softly as she greeted the Celestial Liege and the Confession Lady, “Hi, long time no see…”

The Confession Lady looked blankly at Fan Yuqing, “Child, are you well? How’s everything going?”

But Fan Yuqing did not respond as she looked at Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing. It was obvious that it was Ye Jing that was undergoing the lightning tribulation and not Xuan Danfeng.

She smiled weakly at Ye Jing, “You are in trouble again, am I right?”

Ye Jing protested weakly, “It isn’t my fault. It is Sister Danfeng…she distracts me and suddenly it happens…I really don’t know exactly what is happening…”

Xuan Danfeng was smiling awkwardly, “I didn’t know that she is in the midst of her cultivation…”

Fan Yuqing folded her arms and said coolly, “Now that it happens, there is nothing we can do. She is pretty lucky to have her lightning tribulation so soon. Let’s see now if she can overcome it. Don’t stay in the room unless you want the entire place to be blown apart by lightning later. You have only got a short time to prepare before the actual lightning tribulation starts.”

Ye Jing quickly picked up her sword and asked around panicky, “So what should I do?!”

The Celestial Liege said, “Prepare whatever you can. You need to have lightning resistant artefacts or any treasures that may help you.”

Ye Jing was smiling weakly, “I don’t have any…”

Xiaofang suddenly spoke out as he took out a horn, “Jing’Er, wait! This is the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth. Although we have not refined it into lightning pills yet but the horn is still useful.”

Fan Yuqing frowned, “It seems that Ye Jing has quite a bit of luck today. If I am not wrong then this is the horn of an eight rank Tyrant Behemoth. How did you manage to get it?”

Xiaofang grinned, “From the corpse of the Tyrant Behemoth when we had fallen into the gorge. Where we had found you…”

Fan Yuqing immediately waved her fingers. She did not want to refresh her memories with that dreadful place for as long as she lived. Then she turned to Xuan Danfeng, “Since Ye Jing is facing the lightning tribulation, it will be a little weird if Xuan Danfeng doesn’t face hers. She will find it difficult to account to everyone later. Why don’t Sister Danfeng takes the lightning tribulation at the same time?”

Xuan Danfeng smiled awkwardly, “It is not like I have a choice…”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “If I say you can then you will be able to. I will help to be your conduit…”

The Confession Lady immediately said, “Niece, this is too dangerous. You can’t risk your body like this…”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “I’ve grown up now. I know what I am doing.”

The Celestial Liege nodded and said to his consort, “Let it be. Let’s assist at the side.”

Slowly the Confession Lady nodded as she heaved a soft sigh, “Niece, be very careful.”

Fan Yuqing had turned to Xuan Danfeng, “Hold your hand onto mine. Release all your spiritual force just like what Ye Jing is doing now. This is the exact same experience as when you are having a breakthrough from the golden celestial level to the sacred saint level.”

Xuan Danfeng nodded nervously and she did as Fan Yuqing had told her to do.

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Actually, my spiritual force seems to be leaking. It is not like I am actually releasing my spiritual force on my own accord…”

Fan Yuqing grabbed Ye Jing’s hand as the three of them sat around Ye Jing’s immortal sword, “You talk too much. Aren’t you afraid of dying?”

Ye Jing smiled bitterly, “I am really afraid. That’s why I am talking so much. So what are you planning to do?”

Fan Yuqing looked up and looked at everyone, “Firstly, everyone else should get as far away as possible from this place until we are the size of a berry in your vision. Secondly, the three of us will be taking the lightning tribulation together. The real lightning tribulation will of course aim for Ye Jing but because I am acting as the conduit, the lightning tribulation will be aiming for me instead before distributing its raw power to Ye Jing and Danfeng.”

Then she frowned softly, “Why is the rest of you still here?”

Xiaofang smiled bitterly as he said, “Jing’Er, be careful…”

Ye Jing was secretly looking at Xiaofang as she said silently, “Xiaofang, if I don’t pull through then I hope that you can be strong…”

Gong Nanyan said softly to Xuan Danfeng, “Protégé mistress, please be careful…”

Afterward, everyone had departed except for Ye Jing, Xuan Danfeng and Fan Yuqing.

Fan Yuqing was also releasing her aura and her golden aura had completely enveloped over Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng.

Ye Jing was smiling, “Sister Yuqing, your aura is so comfortable and soothing. Almost intoxicating.”

Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “You won’t say that once the lightning tribulation has started.”

Xuan Danfeng nervously said as she quickly took out some of the precious pills that she had been saving and distributed to Ye Jing and Fan Yuqing, “There are many types of lightning tribulation. The three-stage silver lightning tribulation, the six-stage golden lightning tribulation and the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation. I wonder what we will be facing? Since Ye Jing had only just reached the intermediate saintess level then this should be the easiest of the lightning tribulations, the three-stage silver lightning tribulation.”

Fan Yuqing smiled as she said casually, “You are probably right in your guess. But with me as the conduit, this will probably be the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation instead.”

When she had said that, Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing had immediately turned ashen as they both said weakly together, “Crap! Holy! I am going to die here today!…”

Ye Jing was almost in tears, “I think I just got conned by you. Sister Yuqing, please be merciful and let go of my hands…”

Xuan Danfeng actually had a tear that dripped down her cheek as she said almost incoherently, “I have heard that the three-stage silver lightning tribulation is nine times more fearsome than a normal lightning while the six-stage golden lightning tribulation is thirty-six times more deadly than a normal lightning. As for the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation, it is eighty-one times more deadly than a normal lightning. If we were to take the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation then we will be struck by nine lightning one after another that have the ferocity of 81 lightning. All in all, we have to take the punishment of 729 lightning. This is not something that our golden bodies will be able to take.”

Ye Jing was smiling bitterly, “Sister Danfeng, your math is really good…”

Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly, “Not really. I have done some early assumptions just in case I have to take my lightning tribulation one day.”

Fan Yuqing looked at them and said casually, “Taking the nine-stage lightning tribulation will only make your future potential stronger as a Great Saintess and increases the likelihood for your immortal ascension. Taking the three-stage lightning tribulation will only make you a weak Great Saintess…”

“I don’t mind being a weak Great Saintess…” Both Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng said weakly at the same time.

Ye Jing gave a faint smile, “It is better than a dead Great Saintess.”

Xuan Danfeng was smiling bitterly, “I agree as well.”

Fan Yuqing frowned lightly, “The two of you have no aspirations at all. I can’t believe that you are patriarch leaders. You only got this one chance to temper your celestial body and you won’t have a second chance. Don’t be afraid and trust me. I’ve taken the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation. It isn’t that difficult to overcome it. I was only half-dead when I had overcome it.”

Ye Jing, Xuan Danfeng: …

Fan Yuqing continued casually as she saw the lightning had turned into freaking purple and was thundering as though it was sundering the heavens and the earth, “Well, it seems that the lightning tribulation is about to start. Be prepare…”

Ye Jing panicky said, “Wait! I still I’m going to take a pee…I am so nervous…”

Xuan Danfeng blurted out, “I’ve stomach cramp now. What a bad timing…I need to take a pee too…”

Fan Yuqing frowned with disbelief at their nervousness, “Pee in your panties then because it is already starting…”

As she said that, a purple streak of lightning had suddenly descended and had flown into them, exploding furiously as it struck!

Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, Beitang Ying, the Celestial Liege, Li’Er, Chu Yunfeng, the Confession Lady and Luo Bihua who were watching from the side of the mountain were startled at the intensity of the purple lightning bolt as it exploded over Ye Jing, Fan Yuqing and Xuan Danfeng, sending fires, debris and dust to scatter all around…

Xiaofang had broken into cold sweat as he could only stared at what was happening and he was unable to do anything to help…

Gong Nanyan was trembling nonstop and her golden eyes were watery…

When the dust had scattered, Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were all breathing hard. All three of them had received a tremendous jolt though their hearts and it felt like their souls could depart from their bodies.

Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were startled to see that there was blood that was dripping down from Fan Yuqing’s lips. It seemed that she had taken more punishment than them…

Fan Yuqing weakly said, “You are only taking the strength of 81 lightning but I’ve to take the strength of 162 lightning because of my heaven-defying act. Don’t be a crybaby and start to be serious or we will all lose our lives here.”

Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were immediately guilty as they popped in whatever divine pills that they had as they exercised all their spiritual strength to the fullness in anticipation for the next stroke of forthcoming lightning.

Fan Yuqing smiled weakly as she took a pill, “Good. This won’t be easy but with the horn of Tyrant Behemoth here and Ye Jing’s immortal sword that can dissipate energies here, we do have a good chance to succeed. So don’t any of you die halfway.”

Xuan Danfeng nodded weakly while Ye Jing pursued her lips and said weakly, “You too, Sister Saintess Yuqing…”

Fan Yuqing looked up to the thundering heavens and said grimly, “The second lightning is coming soon…”

Elsewhere, there were many celestials that had gathered to watch the lightning tribulations at a safe distance and were discussing hotly…

“Elder Lin Wucheng of the Ancient Ascension Sect has attracted a three-stage lightning tribulation…”

“The Celestial Sword Clan Elder Tang Yiren has attracted a six-stage lightning tribulation…”

“Look! Palace Mistress Xuan Danfeng has actually attracted a nine-stage lightning tribulation?!”

“Isn’t Xuan Danfeng the youngest saint among the three?”

“Will Xuan Danfeng going to survive the nine-stage lightning tribulation?…”

“Even Saintess Mu Huiyin has attracted only a three-stage lightning tribulation…”

“I’ve heard that Saintess Ziyue had previously attracted a six-stage lightning tribulation. That is why she is able to remain in the celestial realm for such a long time…”

“It is an extremely rare chance to see this nine-stage lightning tribulation. It is said that even the mountains will be shattered by the purple lightning…”

“If a saint were to survive through a three stage lightning tribulation, their time here will be extended for two to four thousand years. Surviving through the tempering of the six-stage lightning tribulation will grant five to seven thousand years while a nine-stage lightning tribulation will bestow an extended time of eight to ten thousand years…”

“I wonder what the lightning tribulation of Saintess Yuqing when she had become a great saintess?”

“Isn’t Lin Wucheng the most senior and oldest of the three celestials? Why is that his lightning tribulation is the easiest?”

“Even though the three-stage lightning tribulation is the easiest but there is still a thirty percent mortality rate. It isn’t as easy as you think…”

“The nine-stage lightning tribulation rarely appears. Now that it has appears, the entire mountains are shaking even as we speak…”

Chapter 113: Lightning Tribulation (1)

Ye Jing inspected her Heavenly Decree but it was still voided of any runic texts. She quickly put it back into her spatial jade belt. “Well, no news means it is good news then?”

Giving a soft sigh, she took out her immortal sword to have a look. She had been trying to divine harmony with her sword for many days now but all her attempts had ended up in failure. With her acute Divine Sense ability, it just did not make any sense for her to fail in her attempts especially when she had previously succeeded.

She was groaning softly, “Xiaofang is able to divine harmony with his immortal sword in such an easy manner and why is that I can’t? I really don’t believe that he is such a genius…this is so disgraceful…”

“Or is it my sword is unable to recognize me now?Or because my cultivation core has changed now…”

Ye Jing gasped all of a sudden as she thrust her sword into the ground, “That’s why! Now I know why. After I’ve absorbed the Heavenly Profound Pill, my cultivation core has also undergone a tremendous transformation…”

Therefore she began to act upon her thoughts by releasing her saintess aura to envelop her sword with her spiritual force…

After absorbing the Heavenly Profound Pill, this was the first time that she had released all her profound aura.

The entire room was soon glowing with her brilliant golden aura and even Yu’Er was flapping her wings in astonishment…

The immortal sword that was thrust into the floor was soon vibrating with her spiritual force as a faint connection was established between them.

Ye Jing was delighted and she was smiling, “Yes, that is the feeling…”

All of a sudden there was a voice behind the door. It was Xuan Danfeng as she laughed jovially, “Sister Jing’Er, I am back this morning. The first thing that I am back is to look for you. Do you miss me and now think that I am your best sister?”

Ye Jing was startled from her deep meditation as she looked up and shouted, “Alas! It is Sister Danfeng. You are such a liar. You’re only here to see Gong Nanyan. Leave me out of your mushy mushy words…”

Ye Jing gasped out all of a sudden for she was suddenly jolting as though she had been struck by a lightning bolt as she grabbed her sword for support. Instead of sensing that her spiritual energies were upon her sword, her spiritual energies were now departing rapidly into a spiral column upward.

However other than that, she did not feel as though she had any ill-effect and instead she was floating lightly on her foot, “What is this weird feeling that I am experiencing now?…”

When Xuan Danfeng had heard her sudden cry, she barged into the room and was startled to see Ye Jing losing control of her spiritual energies. “This…don’t tell me…”

From outside, a dark storm had suddenly descended and the loud thunderclaps that were produced by lightning could be heard rumbling aloud!

Instinctively, Xuan Danfeng knew what it was as she gasped, “This is the lightning calamity! Someone is breaking through from the intermediate sacred saint level to the upper sacred saint level? Are you facing your lightning tribulation now?”

Ye Jing was startled, “Is me? How is it possible? I have only just breakthrough to the intermediate saint level…”

Just as she was still doubtful, the Celestial Liege and the Confession Lady had also barged into her room as they said panicky at the same time, “Jing’Er, you are facing your lightning tribulation?!”

The Confession Lady looked at her blankly, “What did you do this time?”

Ye Jing was smiled weakly as she looked at her godparents, “I don’t know what is going on…I was just trying to cultivate with my immortal sword…”

Attracted by the commotions, Gong Nanyan and Beitang Ying had also rushed into the room…

Beitang Ying gasped softly when she saw the Celestial Liege but otherwise, her countenance was soon expressionless.

Elsewhere all the celestials that were at the Unmoving Mountains were startled by the unnatural dark storm that had suddenly descended. They knew that someone was attempting a lightning tribulation in order to overcome the barrier to become an upper sacred saint. If that person were to succeed then a great saint would be born.

A number of high level celestials quickly moved their fingers to calculate what was going on and most of the signs were soon pointing at the guest palace of the Lofty Snow Palace.

There was only one intermediate saintess in that location and she was none other than Xuan Danfeng.

Immediately there were plenty of speculations that Xuan Danfeng was attempting for a breakthrough to a Great Saintess…

“Isn’t that too fast? Six months ago, she is only an intermediate saintess…”

“You may not know this but the lightning tribulation doesn’t depend on the cultivation talent of the cultivator. Rather, it can only be chanced upon by lucky occurrences…”

Almost immediately, there were more gasps from the high level diviners as they quickly calculated that the lightning tribulation would strike two more locations at the Unmoving Mountains; the guest palace of the Celestial Sword Clan and the main palace of the Ancient Ascension Sect.

This could only mean that Elder Tang Yiren of the Celestial Sword Clan and Elder Lin Wucheng of the Ancient Ascension Sect were also facing their lightning tribulation at the same time!

Three intermediate saints of the patriarch clans were actually taking their lightning tribulation today. Such an event had never happened before!

Should they succeed in overcoming the lightning tribulation then this would mean a great boost to the fighting strength of the righteous celestial clans!

Today was indeed a weird day and a day that caused a great flurry among the hundreds of celestial clans. This was the second time that the hundreds of celestial clans were this excited and this event was soon the talking point of the day. The first time that everyone was this excited since they were here, it was the duel that was between Saintess Fan Yuqing and Saintess Mu Huiyin.

At this moment, Fan Yuqing was frowning lightly as she quickly divined with her fingers. “It comes from Xuan Danfeng guest palace alright. But why do I have this nagging feeling that this has to do with Ye Jing?”

She said to Feng Minyue, “I will go and take a secret look…”

Feng Minyue nodded and said gently as her golden eyes looked tenderly at her, “Be very careful…”

Fan Yuqing smiled gently, “There is nothing to worry about…”

Feng Minyue sighed quietly, “Why is that I got a really uneasy feeling about this?”

Chapter 112: Trivial (3)

Ye Jing and Fan Yuqing were both quietly looking at the starry heavens that were above them. They were alone in the back mountains of the Unmoving Mountains and were lying on the grassy patch.

Somehow tonight, they felt like talking to each other before the forces of the Devil Isle approached. According to updates, it would take no more than three days before the arrival of the Devil Isle.

There were many reports of casualties and every day, hundreds of wounded celestials would be carted into the fortress of the Ancient Ascension Sect for treatment. Most of the fighting was conducted between the fighters of the righteous celestial clans and the dark celestial clans. The Devil Isle rarely intervened except for once when it looked like they were not advancing.

Ye Jing laughed softly, “Tomorrow, Sister Danfeng will be back with her clan forces. Hopefully, she will be alright. What about your Minyue?”

For the past week, Xuan Danfeng had been mobilizing her clan forces to aid the hasty retreat of the righteous celestial clans to the Ancient Ascension Sect. At the same time, she was giving her forces some field experiences and exposure to the melee.”

Fan Yuqing said casually. “She is already back. I’ve told her that I will be here. She will be here to look for us later.”

Ye Jing nodded as she smiled, “It seems that Mu Huiyin is going to be greatly disappointed. She is expecting the Goddess Envoy or the Goddess Devil to confront her but her stupid plot did not succeed.”

Fan Yuqing smiled with a tiny chuckle sound, “I don’t think she is expecting her plans to succeed anyway. If there are spies of the Devil Goddess or the Goddess Envoy at the banquet then they would already have known of her schemes. Rather, she is trying to be the center of the targets. Although I don’t wish to admit it, she is a true heroine. I feel a little bad toward her.”

Ye Jing giggled softly, “Which part did you feel bad toward her? Seducing Liang Ni?”

Fan Yuqing turned and smiled at her, “The part about asking Xiaofang to put poop on her bed.”

Ye Jing: …

Ye Jing said, “You seem to be more popular than me. Liang Ni, Lin Wucheng, Yun Xinghe and so many others…”

Fan Yuqing frowned lightly, “That is because I don’t hole up like you do. If you were to make a few appearances then you will have plenty of suitors behind your tail.”

Ye Jing laughed softly, “You mean plenty of haters and people that want me dead?”

Then she asked, “Say, do you really have anyone that you really like?”

Fan Yuqing looked at her coldly, “Why are you such a gossiper?”

But as she turned her head away, she said quietly. “A long time ago, yes. There is one…”

Ye Jing was thinking, “Was he the one that her elders did not want her to be with? The one that has no cultivation future?”

Fan Yuqing heaved a soft sigh as her eyes seemed to be in a distant place, “He is a good man. Better than anyone else in the world.”

Ye Jing was smiling as she asked curiously, “Such a good man, you must surely introduce him to me. What is his name and where is he from?” She was thinking. If this man could catch her eyes then surely he must be an extraordinary person.

Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “You won’t know him.”

Ye Jing frowned softly, “C’mon!”

Fan Yuqing looked up to the heavens, “I wonder how he is now? It has been more than two hundred years. I’ve first met him in Tranquil City that day. He is actually just an ordinary celestial with no extraordinary background. In fact, his cultivation level is quite low and is only at the master practitioner level. At that time, I was already a saintess. So you can imagine the gap that is between us. But he is a knowledgeable scholar and I’ve already fallen in love with him. I don’t think in my entire life, I will love another as much as I love him. Dongfang Jun, I wonder what you’re doing now? Are you well?”

When Ye Jing heard his name, she was suddenly startled and there was a weird expression on her. She had married Dongfang Jun in his dying days and she was his widow…

Ye Jing miserably thought, “Surely not. I hope that they are not the same person. If not, Fan Yuqing will surely kill me…”

She felt really guilty as though she had just taken Fan Yuqing’s toys and she quickly said, “Well, things may change after two hundred years. After all, two hundreds is actually a long time. Maybe he has already gotten married and has kids. So you should try to forget him.”

Fan Yuqing looked away and Ye Jing was startled to see that her body was trembling lightly, “I can’t. I can never forget him. I don’t care if his cultivation level is low or if he can never become a golden celestial…”

Ye Jing tried to comfort her, “Did you try to look for him? And how did you separate?” She obviously knew that it was her elders that had separated them but she was asking to mask her guilt and to disguise the fact that she had already known…

Fan Yuqing replied slowly, “I think that is enough already. This is too personal already. What about you? When are you going to get marry to Xiaofang?”

Ye Jing said coyly, “We are not an item and he hasn’t proved himself worthy yet.”

Fan Yuqing: …

Fan Yuqing looked at her and said, “You are just a kid. Just like him. So I think that the two of you will be the best match. If you give him up then he is going to be with Gong Nanyan in the future. This, you ought to be wary.”

Ye Jing smiled with a light flush on her face, “Then let him marry Gong Nanyan then. I will not care less.”

Fan Yuqing frowned at her, “Sometimes I think that you deserve a spanking on your butt. You doesn’t seem too worry that your position as number one will be taken or is it because you have a special hold on Xiaofang?”

Ye Jing giggled, “I’m not telling you. Why don’t you tell me if you like Xiaofang or not? Be honest with me!”

Fan Yuqing blew a gust of wind on her face, “You are too sly. If you are not honest with me, why should I be honest with you? Do you really think that this entire fraternity is your playground?”

Ye Jing heaved a soft sigh as she grew solemn, “Do you really think that I want to be the Goddess Envoy? I am really afraid of my future. Or rather, I am afraid that I will have no future…to be with Xiaofang. So it is better that he has someone to take care of him in the future. His greatest mistake is to look for me…”

Fan Yuqing: …

Ye Jing continued as she looked up the starry heavens, “I have a strange premonition that we may be fighting against each other. Will you kill me, Sister Yuqing?”

Fan Yuqing: …

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “I am just an ordinary celestial that is thrown into the samsara sea of destiny. But you are different. You are born with a special destiny as well as the daughter of the heavens.”

Fan Yuqing sighed softly, “I guess that your godparents have already shared with you this much. Then I want to tell you that I want to have nothing to do with my special destiny because in my entire life, they do not want me to take any risks. I feel unworthy of my special destiny. Even my Sister Yi Si will rather give her Eternal Lotus to you than to me. You have no idea how I feel…”

Ye Jing looked at her and for a while, the two of them were looking at each other as though they had a new understanding of each other…

Finally Ye Jing spoke, “You really don’t look like a villainess at all.”

Fan Yuqing smiled, “You don’t look like one either. But I am better than you because I have probably killed more than what you can possibly count them and before you say anything, I am totally serious. That is why I am no longer the daughter of the heavens but a really nasty villainess.”

Ye Jing smiled as she cuddled in Yuqing’s arm before falling asleep…

Fan Yuqing frowned lightly, “Hey, don’t fall asleep here. Or I will really strip you naked here…”

Ye Jing opened her eyes and said gently, “I really wish that I got a real sister like you. It is like I have finally blurted out what is in my mind and now I feel much better…”

Fan Yuqing did not say anything. It was because in her heart she had already regarded Ye Jing as her half-sister…

At this moment, Feng Minyue had just arrived as she called out. “Sister Yuqing, Sister Ye Jing. Haven’t you chat enough? Let’s go back.”

Fan Yuqing smiled as she floated gently to her feet as she reached her hand for Ye Jing, “Come. It is getting late. We should go back and have a good rest.”

Ye Jing nodded and gave a smile at Fan Yuqing and Feng Minyue, “Then I make a move first. Our guest palaces are at two different mountain peaks of the Ancient Ascension Sect’s premises. “ With that, she had flashed down the mountains…

Feng Minyue smiled gently as she watched her disappeared down the mountains, “I can’t believe that she is now an intermediate saintess. Her advancement has been so rapid. Among the four of us, she used to have the lowest cultivation level. Now she is ahead of Danfeng and I.”

Fan Yuqing nodded but she soon smiled, “So how is your trip?”

Feng Minyue said gently, “The dark celestials are more numerous than I’ve expected. On average, their fighting skills are better than the fighters that are from my domain.”

Fan Yuqing nodded, “That is because their dark celestial fraternity is more ruthless than the righteous celestial fraternity. Although their average fighters are much better but they do not have many high level fighters due to their ruthless attrition rates. You didn’t encounter the fighters from the Devil Isle?”

Feng Minyue shook her head, “We have a glimpse of the Sword Centipede once and we quickly stay steer of it.”

Fan Yuqing smiled, “Lucky you did. That is a ninth rank desolate monster. Even a peak saint may find it hard to beat. Is there anything else?”

Feng Minyue smiled weakly, “I have heard many gossips of you.”

Fan Yuqing frowned lightly, “Hurry and tell me. I am keen to know my own gossips.”

Feng Minyue hesitated for a while before saying, “There are rumors about you, mostly regarding Yun Xinghe and Liang Ni. They say that the reason why Mu Huiyin and you have fought so openly is because of Liang Ni. By now, everyone had known that Liang Ni had been expelled from the Listening Rhythm Pavilion. Also, they…are discussing your dazzling body during the fight with Mu Huiyin…”

Fan Yuqing smiled, “What’s wrong with that? Why is your voice faltering all of a sudden?”

Feng Minyue sighed softly before continuing, “I think that some of them have wild imaginations after you have torn off your long skirt. They are discussing that you may not have worn any panties.”

Fan Yuqing had suddenly turned a little ashen as she said in a low voice, “They really have sharp eyes…”

“Huh?”

“’Cos, I didn’t wear any on that day…”

“……”

Chapter 111: Trivial (2)

Beitang Ying, Ye Jing and Gong Nanyan were now sitting opposite one another. They were all looking awkward and were just sipping tea while they studied their cultivation slips.

Finally Ye Jing could not resist the silence as she said in a half-teasing manner, “Beitang Ying, I see that you are a golden celestial now. The same as us. Isn’t this such a wonderful feeling? You ought to thank Xiaofang. He has made such a great sacrifice for you.”

Beitang Ying looked up at Ye Jing before she said quietly, “This you need not worry. I am not an ungrateful person and will find a way to repay him.”

Ye Jing laughed softly, “Surely you are not thinking of using your body to repay him or something like that?”

Beitang Ying raised her eyes to meet Ye Jing before she said quietly, “This method is a little too low, am I right?”

Gong Nanyan: …

Ye Jing: …

Beitang Ying smiled faintly as she added sarcastically, “Even if I deploy this method, I will be ten times and a hundred times better than any of you. Am I right? The two of you look so traditional. To get a man’s heart, it all dependable if you are able to service him good in bed.”

Gong Nanyan, Ye Jing: …

Ye Jing smiled weakly but she was thinking, “You are a virgin and you are lecturing us? How shameless can you be…” But she could not tell her that she was no longer a virgin and she could only display an idiotic expression.

She tried to change to another topic, “What are you planning to do after this?”

Beitang Ying replied without a second thought, “I intend to follow Saintess Yuqing. Wherever she goes, I am going as well.”

Ye Jing smiled weakly as she thought, “Don’t tell me she is in that type of a relationship…no wonder she is still a chaste maiden at her age…”

Beitang Ying looked at her and asked, “What about you? Are you going to marry Xiaofang after the final battle is over?”

Ye Jing laughed softly as she tried to hide her shyness, “No one can predict if that will be the final battle. Moreover, I may not be alive after this too. If you want to ask about Xiaofang, you can ask Nanyan here. Whatever happens to Xiaofang, I do not care because I am totally not interested in him.”

Beitang Ying: …

Gong Nanyan: ….

Beitang Ying looked at Ye Jing and said coldly, “Do you think that I am blind or an idiot?”

Ye Jing chuckled softly, “Say whatever you like.”

Beitang Ying looked at Gong Nanyan and asked, “So you like Xiaofang?”

Gong Nanyan coolly looked at her and said, “Whether I like Xiaofang or not is my business and none of your business.”

Beitang Ying looked intently at Gong Nanyan before she heaved a soft sigh, “Actually even if you never tell me, I am still able to guess.”

Still Gong Nanyan did not say anything but continued to study her cultivation slips.

All of a sudden there was a mini explosion in Ye Jing’s room and she was startled. She panicky flashed to her room as she cried out, “Yu’Er!? Are you alright?”

Gong Nanyan and Beitang Ying followed right behind her.

Ye Jing’s room was in a mess now, with broken furniture and there were multiple fires that were burning all over.

Yu’Er was in the middle of the room in her true phoenix form and she was so large that her head had even reached the ceiling.

Ye Jing asked weakly, “I thought what it is. So it is my Yu’Er that has a breakthrough to the Eighth Rank…”

Gong Nanyan and Beitang Ying were both startled when they had heard that. An eighth rank desolate beast was equivalent to a cultivator that was between an upper golden celestial and an initial sacred saint.

Right now, this phoenix was now an eighth rank Saint Beast!

Ye Jing swept her eyes around her room and said unhappily, “You have better clean this mess up or else I will wed you to an old and ugly phoenix.”

Yu’Er was crying and shrieking as she flapped her wings in protest…

Chapter 110: Trivial (1)

After arranging for Beitang Ying to settle with Ye Jing and Gong Nanyan, Fan Yuqing and Feng Minyue were taking a slow stroll back to the guest palace of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa when they chanced upon Liang Ni arguing with Mu Huiyin and Ascension Master Tie Nansen.

As Mu Huiyin saw Fan Yuqing, she smiled coldly to Liang Ni. “Isn’t that your new lover? Why don’t you look for her right now?”

Liang Ni was startled as he turned around and saw Fan Yuqing and Feng Minyue heading in his direction, “Saintess Yuqing…”

Tie Nansen said sternly, “On accord of our friendship, I shall arrange a superior room for you. But if you want to leave then I shall not stop you either. Remember that your protégé mistress has expelled you from her sect. You are not to pester her again.”

Liang Ni said angrily, “Tie Nansen, do you think I do not know that you are coveting my protégé mistress for ages? She doesn’t like you so you can give up your wishful thoughts…”

Mu Huiyin hummed coldly as she took Tie Nansen’s arm, “You are wrong. I have already reciprocated to his love and we’re together now. It is all thanks to you that I’ve finally know what a good person he really is. He has been waiting for me for close to 800 years. Now I only wish to spend my remaining years with him.”

As Fan Yuqing quietly approached, Mu Huiyin smiled faintly and said. “Saintess Yuqing and Saintess Minyue, how is your day?”

Feng Minyue merely nodded gently because she knew that Mu Huiyin was only looking at Fan Yuqing.

Fan Yuqing smiled gently as she looked at Mu Huiyin and Liang Ni, “I’m good. How about you? I think I am hearing an argument?”

Liang Ni was looking at Fan Yuqing as he muttered, “Saintess Yuqing, can we talk later?”

Mu Huiyin smiled coldly, “The two of you can talk all you want. From today onward, Liang Ni isn’t my disciple anymore. As a matter of fact, I have expelled him from my sect. Good bye.”

Then she walked off without looking back.

Tie Nansen bowed quickly with his hands to Feng Minyue and Fan Yuqing, “Let me apologize for Mu Huiyin. She isn’t in a good mood today…” Then he had disappeared in Mu Huiyin’s direction.

Liang Ni turned to look at Fan Yuqing and he was smiling awkwardly, “I…have been looking for you for many days but you are always in the company of Saintess Ziyue.”

Fan Yuqing smiled gently, “My godmother has many things to share with me, especially on methods of cultivation and I have shared some of my cultivation experience with her as well. You know that the big battle is coming soon and we all need to prepare ourselves for it.”

Liang Ni nodded and asked, “I wonder if we can chat one to one?”

Fan Yuqing shook her head gently, “I’m sorry. I am really tired. I’ve just been to Xuan Danfeng place and I got a headache from her. Moreover, Sister Minyue and I are still going to discuss the clan strategy for the upcoming battle. Why don’t we have a chat when everything is over, alright?”

While Liang Ni was staring at her with a sense of loss, Fan Yuqing said. “You ought to pay more attention to your current condition. You don’t look too good and in fact, you are looking a little emotional. I don’t know what happening between your protégé mistress and you but you should try to pacify her and everything will be fine. She isn’t serious about expelling you. It must be because of me and because of our duel that she is upset with you. You should try to avoid me until you’ve pacified her first.”

Finally she heaved a soft sigh before she walked away, “Good bye and take care.”

Liang Ni really did not know what to say. It was because his relationship with his protégé mistress was a secret…

He was thinking as he allowed his thoughts to go wild, “Maybe Saintess Yuqing can sense that Huiyin doesn’t like her and that is why she is trying to avoid me…it is all for my own good…she really cares about me…”
