Chapter 121: The Unknown Visitor (1)

Ye Jing, Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, Fan Yuqing and Feng Minyue had gathered in their usual meeting room to discuss their next course of action against the Devil Isle. The dark celestial clans that were led by the Devil Isle had already reached the Unmoving Mountains and they were just camping outside.

Beitang Ying was not around as she was not from Fan Yuqing inner circle of friends. Instead, the ‘Devil Goddess’ had sent her to scout on the more recent activities of the Devil Isle. This time round, Fan Yuqing had sent Yun Chen to go along with her in order to ensure her safety.

Fan Yuqing gave a soft frown as she looked at Gong Nanyan and Ye Jing, “So where is Xuan Danfeng?”

Gong Nanyan had a small flush as she replied shyly, “She isn’t feeling too well. I will represent her and act on her behalf.”

There was disbelief in Fan Yuqing’s eyes as she said with an amused smile, “Will a golden celestial be sick? Moreover she is a great saintess now.”

Gong Nanyan could only smile weakly as she lowered her eyes while Ye Jing was giggling as she looked at Xiaofang…

Actually the whole lot of them knew what had happened as bad news spread fast. Xuan Danfeng had totally embarrassed herself in front of Xiaofang. When she had regained her wits the next day, she had realized that Xiaofang had seen all that could be seen. Therefore she was trying her best to avoid Xiaofang and everyone for the next couple of days…

Fan Yuqing laughed softly, “Serve her right for drinking so much. She is lucky that Nanyan and Xiaofang are around that night if not, her embarrassment would be more than this.”

Gong Nanyan said softly, “Can we go straight to the more important discussions? My protégé mistress is already feeling horrible about what happened.”

Xiaofang was flustered as he said, “That’s right…”

Fan Yuqing continued to laugh softly as a tear brimmed from her eyes, “Xiaofang, you must have quite a feast with your eyes that night. Even I have to admit that Danfeng has an enviable body…”

Gong Nanyan sighed softly, “Saintess Yuqing, although you are the one that has helped my protégé mistress to overcome her lightning tribulation but…”

Fan Yuqing giggled, “But what? Look at Ye Jing. She is also laughing at the corner. Danfeng is my sister, I can laugh at her whenever I like.”

Ye Jing chuckled softly, “Eh? I didn’t laugh. I was…erm…” Then she looked at Xiaofang and giggled, “I was…laughing at Xiaofang. He looks so silly today…”

Xiaofang: …

All of a sudden Fan Yuqing had leaned towards Xiaofang as she said, “You know. Even for me, I may need more than a hundred strokes against Liang Ni in order to gain an upper hand and there is no guarantee that I may possibly win. How did you accomplish this feat so easily?”

Xiaofang was flushing when Fan Yuqing had suddenly leaned against him and he could even feel her breathing on his face. But he quickly composed himself and gave a smile, “Liang Ni didn’t have a chance against my immortal sword. I don’t think he is expecting an opponent with an immortal sword to suddenly show up. Maybe that’s why.”

Fan Yuqing nodded with a smile, “Your immortal sword is thrice as powerful as the strongest divine sword. Even his invulnerable body wouldn’t withstand a chance against your sword should you decide to use all your strength. An heaven-step immortal sword with its full full sanctum power that is awakened. Even I don’t wish to fight you when you have such a sword in your hands, especially a sword that has the eight element array as its unique ability.”

Ye Jing was frowning, “How come my immortal sword isn’t as good as yours?”

Fan Yuqing chuckled, “Don’t be greedy Ye Jing. Your immortal sword has its own strength and uniqueness. I should be the one that is envious instead.”

Feng Minyue was smiling too as she said, “Alright everyone. Let’s get on with our real business. Why don’t I brief everyone instead? Yesterday, there was an envoy from the Devil Isle and a challenge was issued to the patriarch clans to meet the Devil Isle outside the heaven gates. After a short but heated debate, the patriarch clans have agreed to meet the challenge.”

Ye Jing asked, “So there will most probably be a battle tomorrow? Why don’t the patriarch clans wait for them here? After all, the defenses here are really so formidable.”

Feng Minyue smiled, “Although it is advantageous to wait it out here but the advantage isn’t so great when the dark celestials have the entire Unmoving Mountains surrounded. If we can wait it out here so can they. Moreover we have the advantages of numbers here. In an open fight, it is unlikely that we will lose. There are Saint Ancestor Yuan and his immortal sword, Saintess Ziyue, Saint Dong Sheng and many other celestial experts.”

Ye Jing was sighing softly as though she knew what was coming.

Feng Minyue continued, “A life and death battle will probably take place. So it is better for Sister Saintess Yuqing and Sister Saintess Jing not to go. The two of you have not fully recovered your strength yet.”

Ye Jing began to grow solemn as she sighed softly, “I have to go. The heavenly decree has already told me to confront the Devil Envoy tomorrow. I…I may need to fight her…”

Xiaofang and Yuqing were shocked.

Fan Yuqing said, “You can’t be serious? Do you know that the Devil Envoy is a class above you? You have better hide here while I take your place.”

Ye Jing lowered her glances as she said firmly, “No. This is my battle alone. As the Goddess Envoy, I can’t avoid the Devil Isle anyway.”

Feng Minyue said weakly, “The minute that you show up, you will be butchered by the patriarch clans first. I really don’t advise you to go. Please listen to me, alright?”

Ye Jing smiled weakly as she looked at Xiaofang and Gong Nanyan, “I know…Xiaofang and Nanyan, because of me, you are in hiding as well. Stay here tomorrow…”

Xiaofang stood up and said firmly, “Jing’Er, I am sorry. I can’t do that. Your battle is my battle as well.”

Gong Nanyan nodded and said with a strong conviction, “Sister Jing, I actually don’t expect a happy ending with Xiaofang so please allow me to join you.”

Ye Jing smiled bitterly, “All of you…are so crazy…”

All of a sudden Ye Jing was startled by a presence that was from the outside and just as she was about to say something, Fan Yuqing had suddenly stood up all of a sudden as she said nervously, “Everyone, stay here in this room and please don’t go out. Ye Jing, you better stay here and please don’t come after me. Xiaofang and Minyue, keep a watch over her.”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Even if I want to go, I don’t have the strength.” Then she said solemnly, “Sister Yuqing, be careful. That is a super exponent…”

“Don’t worry. I will be alright…” And Fan Yuqing had already bolted out of the room.

Xiaofang was looking at Ye Jing, “There is someone out there? Why can’t I sense anyone?”

Gong Nanyan said quietly, “Same here as well…”

Feng Minyue was anxious for Fan Yuqing as she muttered, “Sister Saintess Yuqing looked really tense. Will she really be alright?”

Ye Jing managed a weak smile as she looked at everyone, “Why don’t we go and have a quick look?”

Feng Minyue, Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan: …

Feng Minyue frowned softly, “Did you just promise that you will be staying in the room?”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Did I make any promise? I just say that I didn’t have the strength to fight that super exponent.”

“……”
