Chapter 139: Xiaofang in Trouble
It did not take Xuan Danfeng, Feng Minyue and Fan Yuqing long to find a crystal clear stream. The depth of the river was not deep at all, reaching only their knees. But it did not bother them and soon they were stripping and were bathing in the refreshing water.
Fan Yuqing was smiling as she looked at Xuan Danfeng, “I must admit that you have such a good figure…”
Xuan Danfeng laughed as she splashed the river water on Fan Yuqing, “I never know that the Devil Goddess will be such a lecherous woman…”
Fan Yuqing said with a faint smile, “It is not like I’ve never seen your body before. I’ve seen it all two centuries ago already. So why are you so shy?”
Feng Minyue smiled when she had heard them while muttering to herself, “The waters here are so cool and refreshing.”
Fan Yuqing had overheard her as she turned to say, “Indeed. The waters here are filled with all the pure spiritual force of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. There is no other place in the entire celestial realm that can compare with it.”
Feng Minyue nodded as she gently played with the waters with her hands, “It seems that there are two laws here? How can the desolate force here co-exist with the spiritual force here in such harmony that even desolate monsters can exist here? In fact, I can hardly sense any desolate force here but how do we explain the number of desolate monsters here?”
In the celestial realm, most of the stronger desolate monsters roamed below the mists of the mountains while the celestials dwelled above the mountains.
Fan Yuqing said as she unbraided her long hair to wash, “Indeed the laws here are special. The desolate force here exists in perfect harmony within the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth hence the desolate monsters here are not affected. But the main reasons that I suspect are because these desolate monsters here may also not be real or they use the special laws of the immortal realm.”
Feng Minyue was startled, “They are not real? How is it possible? The desolate monsters are too real to me. We can even take the precious materials that are from their bodies out of here.”
Fan Yuqing explained, “It is only my conjecture. So far all the previous desolate monsters that we have seen are too real except for the Brahman Behemoth. It just disappeared just like this after we have killed it. It doesn’t make sense even to me.”
Feng Minyue nodded, “Maybe it did not really die. Or it is a manifestation of the real Brahman Behemoth that is elsewhere.”
Even Xuan Danfeng looked a little pale when she had heard Feng Minyue, “Is it possible?”
Feng Minyue smiled alluringly, “This is only my guess as well. There are thousands of worlds on the first level of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. That means that there are thousands of these Brahman Behemoths as well. How is it possible?”
Fan Yuqing smiled as she loosened her long hair, “I’ve never thought so much on this. Maybe I will ask the Heaveness when I’ve seen her.”
Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly as she looked at her, “You…know the Heaveness?”
Fan Yuqing had suddenly realized that she had been too careless in her conversation so she quickly said with a sly smile, “I say if I’ve seen the Heaveness but it is unlikely.” It was because except for Ye Jing, none of the others knew of her background.
Feng Minyue had seen her kneeling in front of the Great Goddess Fantian that day but she could not establish their relationship. It was when she had followed Fan Yuqing to the Goddess Palace that was hidden within the Tranquil City that she had started to suspect that Fan Yuqing was closely related to the immortals. However during the 8 years that she was in the goddess palace, there was no sight of any of the immortals except for the occasionally appearance of the Celestial Liege and the Confession Lady.
Back then at the Unmoving Mountains, everyone could see that when Fan Yuqing was talking to the Heaveness and the Goddess Isa, there was clearly no deference that was coming from her and she had kept her same cool mannerism as though she was talking to mere celestials.
She thought, “I wonder who my Sister Saintess Yuqing really is? She even knows the Goddess Isa and is even associated with the Goddess Palace. But she is also the Devil Goddess…” Although she was really close to her for the past 8 years and sometimes she would ask but her answers were always elusive.
Xuan Danfeng was still smiling weakly as she looked at Fan Yuqing. Although she had already known that Fan Yuqing as the real Golden Mask Devil Goddess and her notoriety as the villainess that had haunted the celestial fraternity previously but she was also a great mystery to her. For example, where was she from? Who were her parents? How did she suddenly have an immortal weapon in her hands?
Xuan Danfeng knew that her name was in the heavenly decree because as she was about to enter the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth, the Goddess Isa had suddenly divine whispered to her and told her that she may choose to remain outside because she was one of the ten chosen ones whose names were in the heavenly decree.
She thought, “Does this mean that Yuqing’s name is also in the heavenly decree?” She was also thinking, “And why is my name in the heavenly decree?” In terms of her celestial accomplishment, she was sure that there were many others that were more highly attained than her. For example there were the Saintess Ziyue and Saint Dong Sheng. “What merit did I do anyway?”
All of a sudden Xiaofang had barged into the scene. He had an exuberant expression on his countenance. It was because he had finally retrieved the divine sword that was left behind. Ever since he had thought that he had lost Ye Jing forever, he had been regretful of the divine sword that was left behind in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. It was because this was the second gift that Ye Jing had left behind for him…
After he had retrieved the divine sword, he had returned to the place where he had parted with the rest and was suddenly alarmed when he could not find them. But his excellent hearing had picked up their chatty voices after a quick search and he had followed their voices here.
But the scene in front of him stunned him as the three naked maidens stood in view of him…
He was suddenly flustered and he was stammering, “I didn’t see anything…” And he had quickly exited from the scene…
Fan Yuqing was trembling as she dropped into the river. Her face was flushing as she cursed softly, “Whose bright idea is this…”
Xuan Danfeng was smiling weakly, “I don’t mind at all. This isn’t the first time for me anyway…”
Feng Minyue was trembling nonstop and her ears had turned red with her flusters, “Why…didn’t…any of us notice that…he has come…”
“It is because we’re all too buzy talking…” Xuan Danfeng offered a suggestion with a sheepish and awkward smile.
Fan Yuqing was trying to comfort herself with her own thoughts, “This…isn’t the first time that he had seen me like this. The first time was inside that cave…”
Xuan Danfeng laughed softly as she splashed the waters on Fan Yuqing and Feng Minyue to sober them up, “So will our Devil Goddess be the one who will avenge for our ruined reputation?”
Fan Yuqing replied coldly, “I will kill him personally…so that none of this will leak out…”
