Chapter 135: The Party is Formed
Xuan Danfeng reluctantly looked at the blue portal that was in another chamber of the library. This blue portal will lead everyone to the first level of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth.
Right behind her back were Ye Jing, Fan Yuqing, Feng Minyue and Xiaofang.
Ye Jing was looking at it excitingly, “How I miss the times when the five of us are inside together. It seems like it has been such a long time had passed already! Danfeng, aren’t you glad that we have come specifically to look for you for this grand adventure? If we haven’t then I sure that you will be cursing us day and night for forgetting about you.”
Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly as she said silently, “How I wish that you have really forgotten about me. Alas, I am in the midst of a profound icy cultivation technique that can aid me to be a more profound cultivator…”
Ye Jing giggled, “That is what real sisters are for, am I right? By the way, your Protégé Nanyan asks me to send you her regards. She is now happily married with Xiaofang and they even got a little son now. His name is Little Xun.”
When Xuan Danfeng heard her, she was startled. “My Nanyan isn’t in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth? And…”
She looked at Xiaofang with a smile, “I see that you are now with my good disciple. In the future, you have to address me as your senior mistress.”
Xiaofang smiled politely and raised his hands in a bow, “Nanyan really misses you and there isn’t a day that she wonders how her protégé mistress is doing in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. Since her name is in the heavenly decree, she has an option not to enter the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. So we…decide not to enter together.”
Xuan Danfeng nodded gently, “I see. I am so glad that her name is in the heavenly decree. I was a little worried where she was in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. Now my heart can be put to a rest. If she had a choice, she can’t be bothered with the martial skills, cultivation arts and treasures of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth.”
She had always regarded Gong Nanyan as her daughter and was careful to put an extra care to her. She still remembered that she had told her that she did not want to be a cultivator but a homely consort to her man. What a waste of her talents, she thought miserably…
Fan Yuqing trembled a little when she had heard that Xiaofang had a son with Gong Nanyan. Suddenly her heart was heavy and there was a melancholy expression in her eyes…
Ye Jing turned to ask Fan Yuqing, “I wonder where my god-parents and your seniors are? I didn’t see them in the Goddess Palace.”
Fan Yuqing replied indifferently, “So you have finally remembered them. It is difficult to find them now unless some big troubles are to happen. They are now safeguarding the Nine Celestial Fraternity and making preparations for their ascension. Once the ten year period is over, they are free to ascend and to complete their lifelong wishes to ascend as immortals.”
Feng Minyue said, “Because there are numerous golden celestials and supremacies that are in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth, the Goddess Palace and the Devil Isle have both made a pledge to safeguard the celestial clans during this period just in case there is someone who is trying to take advantage of the situation for their own ambitions.”
Ye Jing nodded with a soft sigh, “How unfortunate. I really wish to see them again. They have really helped me a lot…”
Then she smiled and looked earnestly at Fan Yuqing, “Did Uncle Huan leaves behind some of his wealth to me?”
Fan Yuqing: …
“He did leave behind some substantial wealth to you.” Fan Yuqing finally said coolly.
“Waa, why didn’t you tell me earlier Sister Saintess Yuqing?” Ye Jing was cursing softly.
Fan Yuqing merely said nonchalantly, “I have only just remembered. Why are you so eager to lay your hands on it? Are you poor or something?”
Ye Jing replied sheepishly, “Of course I’m poor. Why do you think that we are going into the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth? It isn’t to play or for fun. It is to find new sources of wealth so that we can sell the fabulous treasures that are within it…”
Fan Yuqing cursed softly, “I can’t believe that you’re a great saintess now, Ye Jing and even the Nine Celestial Goddess that is conferred by the gods. Your cultivation is so shitty, fancy you’re hungering over some inconsequential wealth…”
Xuan Danfeng was smiling awkwardly, “I’m not going to lose my life over some material wealth…”
Fan Yuqing turned to her as she smiled coldly, “It is too late now. Danfeng, why don’t you enter the portal first?”
Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly, “It sounds like you don’t trust me to enter last…”
Fan Yuqing smiled, “I will be going in last to ensure that everyone will be entering the portal so don’t you have any funny ideas. Why don’t you make the move first?”
Xuan Danfeng reluctantly took one last look behind her before she entered the blue portal with a soft sigh…
Ye Jing was next as she called out excitingly, “Wait for me…”
She was followed by Xiaofang and Feng Minyue.
Fan Yuqing gave a soft sigh as she shook her head when she was alone, “Why must I be struck with her…” Then she had stepped into the blue portal.
