Chapter 162: Inside the Turtle Citadel
Ye Jing was the first to reach the entrance of the Turtle Citadel. The entrance was massively and a shimmering blue white portal had blocked the way.
The entrance was ten times taller than she was and she felt so tiny when she was looking up at the massive entrance. “It looks so small from afar…”
She was quickly joined up by Fan Yuqing, Xuan Danfeng, Feng Minyue, Xiaofang and Mu Huiyin who were right behind her.
Ye Jing muttered, “I wonder what is inside?”
Fan Yuqing smiled wryly, “I am sure that this will be the first time you are visiting this place so there are some things that I must tell you first.”
Everyone had turned around to look at Fan Yuqing curiously…
Fan Yuqing explained, “While we are inside, our cultivation level will be suppressed to that of the master practitioner level. Even though we are mostly saints here, we won’t be much better than any golden celestials or golden supremacies that are in there.”
Ye Jing was shocked as she quickly said, “Then no way I am going inside. It is too dangerous.”
Xuan Danfeng had a look of dread on her countenance as she said, “Those cultivators from the Desolate Celestial Fraternity have no morals and we are all so beautiful.”
Even Feng Minyue had a look of hesitant on her.
Fan Yuqing said with a soft chuckle, “However, I won’t be suppressed by the immortal arrays inside. Therefore all you need to do is to follow me tightly and nothing unduly will happen to you.”
Ye Jing was speechless, “Why won’t the immortal array inside you? This is so unfair.”
Even Mu Huiyin was looking curiously at Fan Yuqing as she muttered, “You are just a peaked great saintess. Why aren’t you affected?”
Fan Yuqing replied coolly, “Although the immortal arrays inside are formidable but it cannot restrict a practitioner of the fifth heaven eyes positioning. Got it?”
Mu Huiyin stared at Fan Yuqing and was shocked, “You…you have already attained the heaven eyes divinity?” She had been spending the last couple of centuries pouring through several mystical cultivation slips as she tried to unravel the heaven eyes divinity but all her attempts had failed.
She had never expected that Fan Yuqing would have actually already attained it and that she was also a high level heaven eyes practitioner too.
Ye Jing quickly said, “I am at the second positioning. Surely the immortal array doesn’t have any effect on me too, am I right?”
Mu Huiyin turned to look at Ye Jing with astonishment as she thought, “Even she has attained the heaven eyes divinity? But isn’t her bone age only around 30?”
Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “Too low. The first two positioning is only the mortal positioning. You need to reach the heaven positioning and that is only at the fifth positioning.”
Ye Jing muttered, “This is so unfair…”
Everyone else except Fan Yuqing was looking at Ye Jing with a bitter smile. Ye Jing’s talents and divine luck had already exceeded all of them combined…
All of a sudden Ye Jing could sense that Fan Yuqing was troubled as she whispered, “What is wrong?”
Fan Yuqing smiled, “Nothing. Let’s go in now.”
Indeed, she was troubled. It was because she could sense the presence of a dark immortal inside the Turtle Citadel. It seemed that she had already found the dark immortal that was detected by the Great Goddess Heaveness and that a fight inside would be inevitable.
Inside the Turtle Citadel, a group of about a hundred cultivators from the various celestial fraternities were meditating in front of a massive wall as they hope for a divine insight and a chance to imprint their names on the wall.
There were fierce rivalries between the cultivators as they compete bitterly against each other to raise their cultivation levels.
This strange wall contained mystic laws of the heavens more advance than anything that they had studied before and the benefits here were more wondrous than any other treasures elsewhere.
One of the cultivators was suddenly roaring with laughter, “I have finally unraveled the heaven eyes positioning! I’m finally a half-step immortal cultivator now.”
Then he had suddenly stepped forward to force his palm on the wall, infusing all his spirit strength on it and suddenly the name of Gongsun Wan had appeared high on the wall.
It was one inch deep!
The higher the name was, the bigger the name and the depth of the inscription were all factors in marking the achievements of the cultivator.
His peers were praising him, “Genius…” while the other cultivators were mostly looking enviously at him.
Gongsun Wan’s name was now among the very top, causing him to look very pleased and haughty.
“Not bad,” A handsome young looking man said. “But it is actually nothing.”
Gongsun Wan smirked coldly, “Oh? Then can you do better?”
He had recognized this handsome young looking man as someone who had come just a month earlier while he had been here for the past three years.
Unlike the other cultivators who began to meditate as soon as they chanced upon the profound inscriptions on the wall, he had only stood on the same spot while he admired the wall. And he had stood on the same spot for the past one month!
The handsome young looking man smiled coldly as he suddenly hit the wall and the entire wall was shaking hard, startling all the cultivators to look into his direction.
And his name had appeared high above Gongsun Wan. Not only was his name twice as big but the imprint of his name Dongfang Jun was as twice as deep on the wall!
This means that his divine insight was far superior to anyone here!
It was at this moment that there was a spatial distortion that had appeared in the surrounding space and a party of five beautiful maidens and a young man had stepped forth into the place.
Many of the cultivators were in awe and full of admiration for the five beautiful cultivators that had suddenly shown up.
“They are from the Nine Celestial Fraternity?”
“Such wondrous beauties…”
“Seem like we have some interesting newcomers…”
But the most surprising was actually Ye Jing and Fan Yuqing as they stammered out at the same time, “Dongfang…Jun…”
Fan Yuqing was trembling and she had almost tripped when she had caught the sight of him. Why was he here? Was he not dead?
Even Ye Jing was stunned when she had seen him…
The handsome young man was equally astonished when he had seen them and he had suddenly turned pale all of a sudden…
Ye Jing muttered, “His eyes are golden now? He is a golden celestial?”
Even Fan Yuqing was startled. It was because the Dongfang Jun that they had known was a good-for-nothing low level cultivator. But this person in front of them was actually a golden celestial or even higher.
The handsome young man looked at Fan Yuqing and Ye Jing as he said calmly, “I’m not Dongfang Jun and I do not know you.”
Gongsun Wan had suddenly smirked coldly as he pointed to the wall in front, “You say that you are not Dongfang Jun? Then what is this name on the wall now?”
On the tall edge of the wall, was the characters ‘Dongfang Jun’.
Fan Yuqing was trembling as she looked at the wall and him, “You…are…really Dongfang Jun?!”
The handsome young man smiled coldly, “I am not. It is just a random name that I’ve used.”
Ye Jing could not resist saying, “You are lying. You are Dongfang Jun. You have the same familiar aura as him…”
The handsome young man: …
Fan Yuqing had stepped forward as she looked at him intently. Her voice was trembling, “You are lying. You are a liar. You are him and you are Dongfang Jun. You don’t remember me anymore? I’m Yuqin…”
Finally he said without any expression, “Yes, I am Dongfang Jun but I am no longer the Dongfang Jun that all of you have known.”
All of a sudden he had raised his crimson aura and immediately dozens of cultivators behind him were sent flying against the walls and across the huge chamber!
All the cultivators were startled!
“His cultivation level isn’t restricted in here?”
“He has merely exhibited his profound aura and we are all thrown back in this manner…”
Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and the rest of their party had recognized the crimson aura to be the Annihilate Force that they had seen Liang Ni displaying. Could it be that he was actually Liang Ni’s so call master?”
Ye Jing was smiling and she had lowered her glances, “You are really the Dongfang Jun that I’ve known. You can choose to direct the direction of your profound aura against us but you choose not to.”
Dongfang Jun: …
Ye Jing smiled coldly, “Have you forgotten that we are already man and wife?”
This time even Fan Yuqing was startled as she muttered, “How come you’ve never told me?”
Ye Jing smiled weakly as she stole a glance at Fan Yuqing, “I’ve many secrets…”
Even Xuan Danfeng, Feng Minyue and Mu Huiyin were looking at Ye Jing with a stunned expression as they thought, “They are bonded in the sacred vows of marriage?”
Only Xiaofang was not surprised because Ye Jing had come clean with him. Moreover they were only man and wife in name only.
Dongfang Jun said coldly, “I can easily kill all of you now.”
Fan Yuqing looked at him, “You…are a dark immortal?”
When she had said that, all the other cultivators were stunned. This seemingly gentle young man was a dark immortal?!
Dongfang Jun had suddenly flashed to the entrance of the second level of the chamber that was at the far end of the chamber. This second level of the chamber was only accessible to those that had gained insight with the mystic wall and had opened their heaven eyes.
He merely said before he disappointed into the second level portal, “Do you dare to follow me?”
Fan Yuqing and Ye Jing had immediately flashed into the portal!
Xiaofang had followed them too but he was repulsed by a rebound force as he tried to enter through the portal.
One of the cultivators smiled weakly, “It is no use. You need to open your heaven eyes before you can enter the second level.”
Gongsun Wan who had just opened his heaven eyes said, “I am not going inside. I am not going to fight against a dark immortal. In fact, I am getting out of here immediately.”
When he had said that, he had taken the chance to exit the Turtle Citadel via another portal at the other end of the chamber.
He was quickly followed by dozens of other cultivators. These cultivators would rather value their lives than throw it away by fighting a dark immortal.
Even if he was not a dark immortal, they were severely handicapped inside the Turtle Citadel as their cultivation level was suppressed to that of the master practitioner level. But if they were outside then it was a totally different story.
