Chapter 106: Exiting Seclusion
In just a few days, Ye Jing had not only completely absorbed the Heavenly Profound Pill into her spiritual sea but she had also forged a half-step immortal sword from her divine sword. The Nine Tripod Cauldron that Fan Yuqing had lent from Lin Wucheng really worked wonders.
After absorbing the Heavenly Profound Pill, not only did her martial strength also increased tremendous, she had also advanced from the initial sacred saint level to the middle sacred saint level. Even her Eternal Lotus was blossoming as its blue flowers serenely grew with strong pulses of electrifying vitalities within her.
“Did I manage to successful nurture the Eternal Lotus now?”
Ye Jing was now looking at her newly forged sword, “Like a phoenix rebirth, you are now an immortal sword. With you in my hands, I may now able to contest a saint that is of my same level…”
Her martial skills were below par to most saints of the same level. Therefore she could only rely on her divine sword to balance out her insufficient areas.
Ye Jing had not known that her level of martial skills had already surpassed many of her peers as she relied more on her instincts for attacks of opportunity than being restricted to a martial form. Therefore even her opponents would find it difficult to predict her martial moves.
The first person that Ye Jing had wanted to see was of course Xiaofang…
As she opened the door of her room, Xiaofang was already standing outside and he was grinning.
Ye Jing laughed softly, “How do you know that I will be out of seclusion today?”
Xiaofang smiled gently, “I can sense your soul. Jing’Er, you…your aura seems so strong now. Don’t tell me that you are a saintess of the intermediate level now?”
Ye Jing nodded gently, “That’s right.”
But she was soon shocked as she suddenly noticed that Xiaofang’s golden eyes had turned grey, “Your eyes…don’t tell me that you have overcome the Seventh Sense Divinity and has attained the Crisis Divinity?”
Xiaofang answered with a grin, “I was lucky. After I was bedridden for many days, it had suddenly happened.”
Ye Jing frowned lightly, “This is so unfair…why are you so lucky?”
Xiaofang protested weakly, “Jing’Er, I’ve almost lost my life…”
Ye Jing laughed softly, “But you are standing in such a good condition in front of me. But listen, don’t you dare to risk your life in this manner again. Do you know that day, your caring Fan Yuqing had just given me a hard lecture.”
Xiaofang said weakly, “She isn’t my caring Fan Yuqing. She had also given me a hard lecture too and even a tight slap.”
Ye Jing walked up to him and patted his face, “Oh really? Then does it still hurt? Weird, there isn’t any slap marks at all.”
Xiaofang growled softly, “That was a few days ago…”
“You look glad though…”
Xiaofang tried to change the topic by saying, “Let me examine you…”
As Xiaofang took Ye Jing’s wrist, he was startled. “It seems that the Heavenly Profound Pill has been totally coalesced into your spiritual sea. I don’t sense any ill-effect too. This is a little hard to believe. The Heavenly Profound Pill isn’t something that can be easily absorbed in a matter of days. It may even take decades. How did you manage to do it in a matter of days?”
Ye Jing laughed softly, “That is my cultivation secret. Sorry, I can’t tell you.”
Xiaofang asked, “Really?”
Ye Jing smiled, “Really!”
All of a sudden Xiaofang whispered to her, “Jing’Er if you don’t tell me then I won’t let go of your wrist.”
Ye Jing giggled softly, “Then don’t let go. I just don’t want to tell you…”
“Ai….Ahhh…” All of a sudden, Ye Jing gave a soft squeak as Xiaofang had carried her on his shoulder. “Jing’Er. Now that you are out of your seclusion, do you think that we can complete our Body Dual Cultivation to the Sixth Rank now?”
“Let go of me, you lecherous fellow….go look for your Nanyan or your caring Fan Yuqing…I am not going to dual cultivate with you…Xiaofang you badass…”
But Xiaofang totally ignored her and had closed the door…
