Chapter 129: Ye Jing Good Bye
Fan Yuqing turned and looked at the Devil Envoy, “That is her last wish. Why don’t you help to fulfill it? You really got the heavenly decree in an easy manner.”
The Devil Envoy quietly looked at Ye Jing and the Heaveness before she gave a soft sigh, “I am included for sure. Xiao Shuai, Han Shaodong, Qi Meixue, the Celestial Liege, the Confession Lady…”
When Han Shaodong heard the name of Qi Meixue, he was startled and was secretly heaving a sigh of relief…
She had actually paused briefly as she looked at Ye Jing, “…Dugu Fang, Gong Nanyan, Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng.”
Ye Jing was stammering, “Xiaofang is included?! Nanyan also. Minyue and Danfeng as well? Did you make a mistake?”
The Devil Envoy smiled coldly, “No, I did not. We include our opponents too because without them, all these won’t be possible. Now are you satisfied?”
Ye Jing nodded quietly, “I am glad…”
Even Fan Yuqing was startled as she looked up at her mother consort, “Xiaofang, Minyue…they are included?”
The Great Goddess Fantian nodded discreetly…
Han Shaodong was looking at the Devil Envoy as he muttered, “Thank you…”
The Devil Envoy smiled wryly, “I will be going inside the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth for three years so that I can be a golden celestial. The Devil Isle will be in your hands for the next three years.”
Han Shaodong said solemnly, “Don’t worry. With Xiao Shuai and I around, we will take care of things.”
The Heaveness said quietly, “Child, it is about time. Thanks to your willingness to challenge the Devil Envoy alone, we are able to step in much earlier to prevent further bloodshed. You have a good heart…”
Ye Jing took a forlorn look at Fan Yuqing before she laughed softly as she let go of the Heaveness, “Sister Yuqing, let’s end our fight here then!”
All of a sudden Ye Jing had swung her sword and raised her palm forward…
Fan Yuqing did the same with her white flute too as they dashed toward each other with their soft cries, startling the celestials that were looking in their direction.
“Why did they suddenly fight?”
“Isn’t the crisis over already?”
“Isn’t Ye Jing the heroine? Why is Saintess Yuqing attacking her?”
“No, I saw that it is Ye Jing that has made the first move…”
Xiaofang was also startled…
“What is going on?”
The celestials no longer viewed Ye Jing as a villainess anymore but a heroine that had brought them these benefits. Therefore they were startled when the fight had renewed…
Ye Jing waved three sword thrusts but Fan Yuqing parried it all before their palms met with a thunderous clap that created an outburst of martial force around them.
In that instant Ye Jing was seen stumbling weakly as she took seven steps back before she spurt out blood as she collapsed flat on the ground!
Fan Yuqing muttered, “Sorry Sister Jing…”
Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, Feng Minyue, Xuan Danfeng and many others were all stunned…
“The Nine Celestial Goddess is dead?!…”
Many of the celestials had probed with their spirit sense and was dismayed that the newly titled Nine Celestial Goddess was now dead and there was no life in her whatever so.
Li’Er and Luo Bihua broke down into tears immediately when they saw the scene below…
Xiaofang could no longer stand where he was and he had rushed out angrily at Fan Yuqing.
In that same instant he had drawn out his immortal sword and his face was wet with his tears, “Yuqing, why did you have to kill Jing’Er for!”
As his immortal sword was materialized, a dreadful suppression had also appeared in the vicinity and it looked like this sword of his would dismember the frail Fan Yuqing.
But Fan Yuqing had immediately raised her white flute to block off his attack and at the same time, Xiaofang was sent slamming onto the ground as she said tearfully, “You are not the only one who has an immortal weapon now. You don’t have an advantage over me.”
Then she said quietly, “Ye Jing has sacrificed herself for our sake. You should be happy for her instead.”
“She has sacrificed herself for us?…”
Xiaofang was trembling as he crawled tearfully to Ye Jing, “Jing’Er…why didn’t you tell me…why did you shoulder all these alone? You still haven’t told me yet if I am worthy for you…so you can’t die yet…Jing’Er…”
“Isn’t that Xiaofang, the hero of the Nuer Mountains?”
“I have recognized his immortal sword but why his eyes are not golden anymore?”
“Why did Saintess Yuqing kills Ye Jing for? This…is she defying the will of the gods?”
The Great Goddess Fantian saw the panicky reactions of the celestials and she said gently, “The Nine Celestial Goddess has chosen to give up her life for everyone so that the dark descendant will be averted. She is truly the daughter of the heavens and a worthy successor of the Heaveness…”
When the celestials heard that, there were disbeliefs and many of the celestials had fallen to their knees as they lamented loudly for Ye Jing…
Suddenly in the hearts of many, Ye Jing was a true goddess and was the only worthy heroine of the Nine Celestial Fraternity…
Xiaofang was muttering, “Jing’Er gives up her life to save us all?…”
Fan Yuqing said quietly, “She has actually known this all along. The practitioners of the Emptiness Translucence all have strong premonitions and can see their own futures.”
Then she lifted Ye Jing’s body up to walk away…
Xiaofang gasped as he stammered, “Where are you taking Jing’Er…”
Fan Yuqing turned and looked intently at him, “She is only in a deep slumber. In this entire world, only I can revive her. Do you trust me or not? If yes, don’t follow me.”
Xiaofang was startled, “You can revive her?”
Fan Yuqing did not say a word more as she called out, “Yu’Er, come with me.” And a red bird was seen flying above her.
The Goddess Isa had also descended and she gently lifted Xiaofang up, “If there is a person that can revive Ye Jing then it has to be her. So trust her. Your name is in the heavenly decree so you have an option not to enter the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth.”
Then she divine whispered to him, “Don’t you want to see your Little Fenghuang again?”
Xiaofang nodded but his gaze was still upon the departing Fan Yuqing who was carrying Ye Jing…
Saint Dong Sheng was actually not paying any attention to the scene that was below. He had an agonizing heartache as he looked at Saintess Ziyue. For many years now, he was her admirer. The main reason why he had returned to the Ancient Ascension Sect was because he had heard that she would be returning to aid the clan.
He divine whispered to her, “Ziyue, which portals will you be choosing?”
Saintess Ziyue looked at her discreetly with a faint smile as she divine whispered back, “I like to be more courageous this time. I will pick the trial instead.”
Saint Dong Sheng was startled as he asked quietly, “But the library of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth may be able to aid your eventual ascension. You are at your most crucial point. This is an opportunity that cannot be missed. After all, the libraries of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth will only be opened this once for the celestials that are presented.”
Saintess Ziyue lowered her glances as she nodded quietly, “It is alright.”
Saint Dong Sheng suddenly said, “I will go with you.”
Saintess Ziyue was startled as she returned her glance at him, “Aren’t you at your crucial point too?”
Saint Dong Sheng said with trembling lips, “Ziyue, I…I like you all this while. If this is going to be my last journey then let me go with you…”
Saintess Ziyue almost dropped her sword as she looked at him with a surprise look, “You…like me…why didn’t you tell me before?” The truth was all these years she was also secretly in love with him but she did not have the courage to tell him. After all he was the mighty Great Saint Dong Sheng and was extremely popular with everyone.
A large majority of the celestials had actually chosen to be confined within the libraries of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. After all, they could choose to end their confinement at any time. Those who were taking the trials were mostly in groups. After all, the dangers of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth were well-known.
In the months that followed, the news of what happened at the Unmoving Mountains was spreading like wildfire throughout the Nine Celestial Fraternity.
Suddenly there were hundreds of golden celestials and dark supremacies that were making their way to the Unmoving Mountains and were seen entering the portals of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth.
Previously, these high level celestials were either not interested in the confrontations or were baiting their time to fish in the times of troubles.
However when they had heard of the luxurious benefits that were in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth, they were immediately woeful that they were not able to come at the first opportunity.
Moreover, it was said that all the celestials that had witnessed the three goddesses all had a small breakthrough in their cultivations as they were all inspired by their state of divinities. This made them even more regretful.
