Chapter 98: Nine Tail Phoenix
Fan Yuqing was laughing jovially in the room with Ye Jing, Feng Minyue, Xuan Danfeng, Xiaofang and Gong Nanyan.
Ye Jing frowned softly, “Do you think that this is too childish? Coming from the Devil Goddess.”
Fan Yuqing raised her wine cup as she took a sip, “What? She is using such a ruthless means to get me. If I were to fall into her hands, you can very well imagine my tragic fate. I am really considered extremely merciful. Xiaofang, what do you think?”
Xiaofang looked thoughtfully for a while before he smiled, “This is better than killing your foe.”
Fan Yuqing chuckled as she looked at Xiaofang, “Did my sisters hear that? Xiaofang approves of my action.”
Feng Minyue said gently, “But this is putting you in Liang Ni’s hands. Sister Saintess Yuqing ought to be cautious. He looks like someone that can easily overpower any of us here.”
Fan Yuqing giggled softly, “Or this may mean the start of my new romance, right?”
Xuan Danfeng was smiling weakly, “I agree with Sister Minyue. If you are not careful then you may accidentally get bang by Liang Ni. Honestly speaking, that group of people is not that easy to be dealt with. Mu Huiyin, Qin Tianming, Liang Ni and Tie Nansen are one closely knitted group. It is not that easy to break them up. Moreover, that Qin Tianming doesn’t seem to have any weakness.”
Fan Yuqing grown a little more serious as she nodded, “That Qin Tianming’s swordplay is really swift and unfathomable. With him around, even the Devil Isle Xiao Shuai may not get an upper hand.”
Xuan Danfeng nodded as she smiled, “I really don’t see how the Devil Isle will be getting an upper hand by coming to the Unmoving Mountains. Even the Goddess Envoy and the Devil Goddess are not foolish to deliver themselves here.”
Ye Jing frowned, “We are already here.”
But she was soon smiling, “I’ve prepare a feast for everyone. Why don’t we eat and chat at the same time? Yu’Er, stay in the room.” And she was gone in the next instant.
Gong Nanyan was up and following her, “Sister Jing, let me help you by taking the dishes in.”
Xiaofang said as he went after Ye Jing and Gong Nanyan, “Let me help too!”
Fan Yuqing nodded as she said gently, “Don’t mind if you can get more wines. These ascension specialty wines taste really good.”
“Sure!” Xiaofang shouted in a hurry.
While they were gone, Fan Yuqing slowly pointed at the red bird that was chirping in the room, “If I am not wrong then this red bird is actually a phoenix that has taken this form.”
Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng began to look at the red bird that was following Ye Jing for the past few days.
“Eh?” Xuan Danfeng was startled as she looked at the red bird, “How do you know?”
Fan Yuqing smiled, “Look at its phoenix claws. No matter what form they have taken, the phoenix claws will never transform. Do you remember that hen that was with Ye Jing at the Nuer Mountains? This is the same one.”
Feng Minyue was also looking at the red bird with a startled look as she muttered, “A phoenix that can transform is a royal bloodline phoenix. It is very rarely seen.”
Fan Yuqing nodded and smiled, “Yu’Er, come over here and transform yourself. If you do that, I will give you something precious.”
The red bird flew a few times around Fan Yuqing before landing on the table as she chirped loudly.
Fan Yuqing laughed softly as she took out a red pill, “You naughty bird. If you do that then I will give you this precious pill.”
All of a sudden Yu’Er transformed into a small phoenix with two long beautiful red tails and seven smaller tails protruding from her back.
Xuan Danfeng and Feng Minyue were startled as they exclaimed at the same time, “This phoenix is a nine tail phoenix!”
A nine tail phoenix was the rarest of all the phoenix bloodlines and was rarely seen. It was considered to be a near mythical phoenix.
Fan Yuqing muttered softly, “Even in the immortal realm, the nine tail phoenix is extremely rare. The Great Goddess Alice has one…”
But she quickly smiled and tossed the Thousand Year Nirvana Fire Pill that she had taken from the Divine Dream Monarchy, “Here you go.”
Ye Jing had just entered the room as she carried a tray of dishes and was startled, “What are you feeding Yu’Er and why is Yu’Er in her true phoenix form?”
Xiaofang was right behind Ye Jing, “This is Yu’Er true form? I have seen her in this form before.”
Gong Nanyan was also startled, “This is a nine tail phoenix?”
Yu’Er began chirping as she transformed into a small red bird again.
Ye Jing was startled as she turned to look at Fan Yuqing, “You…you have actually given Yu’Er the Thousand Year Nirvana Fire Pill? Where did you get it?”
Fan Yuqing laughed softly, “I had attacked the Divine Dream Monarchy right after your failed attempt.”
Ye Jing was startled, “You what?!”
Then she quietly said, “Thank you. This Thousand Year Nirvana Fire Pill is especially beneficial to fire cultivators and fire beasts.”
Fan Yuqing smiled, “This is nothing to thank me for. It isn’t mine in the first place.”
Ye Jing nodded and asked curiously, “You…you can understand Yu’Er?”
Fan Yuqing smiled wryly, “I can understand the languages of the God Beasts. I once had a Golden Kirin as a pet.”
Ye Jing, Xuan Danfeng, Gong Nanyan and Feng Minyue were startled as they gasped with disbelief. A Kirin was a mythical formidable god beast. There were many types of Kirin but the rarest and most powerful bloodline of the Kirin was the Golden Kirin!
Ye Jing muttered, “You really amazed me at times…”
Then she smiled as she gently laid the dishes on the table, “Come and take some food.”
As Gong Nanyan and Xiaofang began to display more and more dishes on the table, Fan Yuqing, Xuan Danfeng and Feng Minyue were all astonished. Even without tasting the food, they knew that this was a high level of culinary that was being displayed in front of them.
Fan Yuqing looked at Ye Jing as she asked curiously, “Don’t tell me you have prepared these dishes yourself?”
Ye Jing laughed softly, “I have some help from Sister Nanyan here.”
Gong Nanyan quickly said, “I am actually just an assistant. Sister Jing cooks all the dishes herself.”
Xuan Danfeng put a quick bite with her chopsticks, “Wow. Mm, this is so good. It makes me so hungry…”
Xiaofang grinned, “Ye Jing is the best cook. Her food is always so delicious. Better than my mum.”
Fan Yuqing took a bite and smiled weakly, “It is really nice and not oily too. Sister Ye Jing, don’t tell me you spend all your cultivation time in learning how to cook?”
Ye Jing responded with an awkward smile, “Actually I prefer the kitchen than the meditation room.”
Xuan Danfeng was smiling, “It seems that we have a lot of surprises today.”
Fan Yuqing sighed softly, “I think that I will need to spend one month of my sinful time to slowly digest these heavenly food.”
She was actually thinking, “I don’t think I can cook as well as Ye Jing. It is no wonder that Xiaofang likes her. Going to the kitchen is my greatest weakest. In my entire life, I’ve never entered the kitchen…”
Feng Minyue smiled, “Same here. It has been such a long time that I have actually eaten something.”
Once the celestials have attained to the golden celestial level, they will no longer need to eat or drink. Rather, they will be able to get their strength just by cultivating the spiritual force that emanates from the mountains. When they do eat, they are able to harness any food into strength directly by breaking it into energy forms within their inner cultivation core. In a way, Golden Celestials are no longer human anymore but half-step immortals.
Ye Jing smiled, “Then please enjoy the feast. I’m not going to cook again for a long time. This is to celebrate our first collaboration together.”
Fan Yuqing nodded as she secretly looked at Xiaofang who was too busy eating than listening…
Ye Jing asked with a soft laughter, “So what is our next plan?”
Fan Yuqing smiled, “I tell you tomorrow after my date with Liang Ni tonight.”
Ye Jing was startled, “You…what? You actually have a date with Liang Ni tonight? You are really not afraid that he may eat you whole, leaving not even bones behind?”
Feng Minyue shook her head with a soft sigh, “It is not advisable for you to go tonight.”
Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “I have actually two dates tonight. One with Liang Ni and the other one with Yun Xinghe.”
Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly, “I’ve thought that you’ve just left Yun Xinghe in the cold? What is this date that you are talking about?”
Fan Yuqing gave a mysterious smile, “Do you think that Mu Huiyin will let me off tonight?”
