Chapter 140: Lost
Ye Jing naturally did not know what had happened at the stream earlier and the instant when she was back, they were on the move again.
Fan Yuqing, Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng were all still feeling extremely awkward and they did not even dare to look in the direction where Xiaofang was. Similarly, Xiaofang was also feeling embarrassed and he had even dive into another nearby stream to cool himself earlier.
“Weird? Why is everyone so quiet after I am back?” Ye Jing asked suspiciously as she looked at everyone. “Or is everyone a little sour that I have got the immortal pill?”
Fan Yuqing, Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng were walking quietly in front while Xiaofang was at the back, leaving Ye Jing to walk alone in the middle.
Ye Jing muttered, “Why is everyone acting so weirdly? At most I don’t want a share of the future loot.” Then she paused to reconsider her offer, “At most until the next level of course…”
When she saw that no one continued to pay her any attention, she sighed heavily. “Alright then, the next, next level…alright? Sisters?”
“What is wrong, Xiaofang?” Ye Jing turned to ask him. Then she chuckled softly, “I bet that you are scolded by them while I was away just now?”
Xiaofang smiled weakly but before he could say anything, Ye Jing had already ignored him and was calling out to Xuan Danfeng, “Sister Danfeng, why are you so quiet? You’re always so chatty.” Xiaofang was always the quietest one therefore it was perfectly normal so she had quickly switched her attention from Xiaofang to Xuan Danfeng.
Xuan Danfeng answered with a faint smile, “Nothing at all. You think too much. It is just that we are all a little tired from the battle earlier. So how is your pill absorption? Is it smooth?”
Ye Jing was smiling, “I have little issue in absorbing it. I can feel a tingling power that is on my forehead. It is really a wondrous feeling. You’ve just reminded me of something…”
Then she flew next to Fan Yuqing with a delightful smile, “Sister Yuqing, why are we in such a hurry? Where are we going? Are you free to teach me how to use my newly awaken heaven eyes?”
Fan Yuqing looked at her with a weak smile, “Can you not ask me three questions in a single breath? Now that you have awakened your heaven eyes, you ought to slowly meditate and seek your own enlightenment…”
Ye Jing interrupted with a soft laughter, “Sister Yuqing, you are the master while I am just a noob. If you ask me to meditate on my own, I’ll probably take centuries to discover anything meaningful. Since you’re already here, why don’t you instruct me directly?”
Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “Do you think I am the type of person that helps for free?”
Ye Jing had a sly smile as she whispered, “At most I let you have Xiaofang for company for a few days?”
Fan Yuqing: …
Feng Minyue gasped softly when she had accidentally overheard Ye Jing. It was because she had thought that Xiaofang had told Ye Jing about the incident earlier.
There was a beautiful flush on her countenance as she suddenly recalled the scene earlier when Xiaofang had suddenly barged in. The Heavenly Fragrance Villa only had female protégés and this was the first time that she had felt so embarrassed. Suddenly she was feeling so lost and confused at the same time…
Fan Yuqing replied to Ye Jing, “Don’t talk rubbish. I will instruct you when I am free. For now, we are heading directly to the next level.
Ye Jing asked, “We are able to go to the next level so soon?”
Fan Yuqing nodded, “Do you still remember how we had exited from this place before? Since we had encountered the same Brahman Behemoth, this means that as long as we are able to find the cave where the portals are located then we will be able to go to the next level.”
At that time, instead of heading to the next level, they had chosen the portal to leave the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth.
Ye Jing said excitingly as she pointed to a direction, “Then it is easy. I just know the way. It is supposed to be in this direction…”
At the same time, Fan Yuqing, Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng were all pointing at a different direction.
Suddenly all four of them had an awkward expression…
Xuan Danfeng was smiling weakly, “Are you all lost? I could have sworn that it is in that direction…”
Fan Yuqing had a little flush, “I was unconscious at that time. How could I have remembered the way?”
“But you’re leading the way,” Ye Jing muttered.
Feng Minyue was forced to admit, “Actually I am quite bad in my sense of direction…”
Ye Jing smiled awkwardly, “It had been 8 long years. How could anyone have remembered the direction?”
Xiaofang had suddenly spoken up as he approached them, “Erm, actually it is in this direction.”
Ye Jing clapped her hands, “Luckily we have Xiaofang here. Xiaofang then you shall lead the way.”
Fan Yuqing averted her eyes from Xiaofang with a little flush as she said softly, “Let him lead us instead since none of us have any sense of direction.”
Xiaofang nodded as he walked in front of them, “Alright. Follow my lead then…”
Ye Jing protested weakly, “It is not that I don’t have any sense of direction but…hey…wait for me…”
