Chapter 31: Lie Xingyuan’s Mysterious Master
Qin Keqin and Feng Minyue were now in a forest; they were laughing jovially and were pleased at the outcome of the schemes that they had just pulled off.
The only person that was not happy was of course Lie Xingyuan. If anyone was in her boot right now, they would naturally not be pleased as well. It was because she was currently their prisoner and her fate was still unknown.
Qin Keqin turned to Lie Xingyuan to ask her, “Why are you not happy? You should be laughing as well.”
Lie Xingyuan said bitterly, “Why should I? I’m not as vicious as you and I’m not a shrew as you.”
Qin Keqin’s countenance had suddenly changed as she said coldly, “What did you say? I’m a shrew?”
Lie Xingyuan smiled coldly, “A scheming shrew as well.”
Qin Keqin looked really unhappy as she said, “I just get rid of Tang Bufan for your Senior Brother Lu. You should thank me instead.”
Lie Xingyuan said bitterly, “You can cripple him or kill him if you dislike him. Is there a need to go through so much trouble?”
Qin Keqin smiled, “Well…”
Lie Xingyuan interrupted coldly, “I’m not stupid. I can see that you are trying to get Celestial Shi Guanyin to be indebted to you so that she won’t be opposing your schemes in the future. In fact, she may be so grateful to you that she may even join you as your accomplice.”
Qin Keqin asked, “So what is wrong with that? Isn’t it better this way?”
Lie Xingyuan hummed coldly, “You’re just playing sports with all of us. Both of you are seventh realm experts. Is there a need for you to go through so many troubles just to get your objectives done?” She laughed coldly for a while, “Oh, I forget that you’re the Devil Goddess and your deeds cannot be seen under the day. Why don’t you just kill me on the spot?”
Qin Keqin chuckled, “You are so pretty and you are always with Lu Qingyun. I’m thinking of crippling your cultivation core and to sell you to the brothel.”
Lie Xingyuan smiled coldly, “Then get it done. I am waiting.”
She was silently thinking, “Senior Brother Lu, I will never see you again. Maybe in our next lifetime we still have a chance to meet again…”
Feng Minyue said gently, “Sister saintess, you are scaring this child. I will promise you that I will keep her as prisoner for the next ten to twenty years.”
Lie Xingyuan was startled, “You are keeping me prisoner for the next ten to twenty years?!”
Qin Keqin smiled coldly, “That’s right. I can’t have you ruining my plans. Moreover I didn’t kill anyone for the past several centuries already. So I don’t want to dirty my hands.”
Lie Xingyuan smiled bitterly, “How merciful you are indeed. If senior brother knows your true identity, he will never forgive you.”
Qin Keqin bent to and fro as she laughed softly, “Oh but he will never find out.”
Then there was a melancholy look in-between her eyes, “To him, I am always his master.”
Lie Xingyuan hummed coldly, “You are a very bad master.”
Qin Keqin questioned her, “In what way am I a bad master? I am clearing all the obstacles for him so that in the future he can be the sect leader in the Heavens Ridge Villa. This is my wish as master for him.”
When Lie Xingyuan heard her, she was startled. She did all these because of him?
But because she was still angry with Qin Keqin and that she was currently under her threat, she said coldly. “So what? This doesn’t change the fact that you are a super badass villainess. Your reputation in the Nine Celestial Fraternity is extremely notorious!”
Qin Keqin shrugged her shoulders as she smiled, “In this entire fraternity, no one will know that I am the real Devil Goddess.”
Feng Minyue smiled, “That’s right. It is because the Devil Goddess and Qin Keqin will be appearing at the same time if there is a need to dispute any rumors.”
“Oh? No one else in the entire fraternity?” A mesmerizing voice asked.
Qin Keqin and Feng Minyue had turned ashen immediately while Lie Xingyuan was overjoyed. It was the voice of her master!
An enthralling maiden in a golden feather cloak had just walked quietly behind Qin Keqin and Feng Minyue as she spoke to them.
Qin Keqin and Feng Minyue were totally startled and shocked because there was actually someone who could sneak so quietly behind them without them noticing!
Feng Minyue had quickly reacted as she attacked with her fingers at this new intruder while Qin Keqin raised her palms.
But the enthralling maiden chuckled softly as she knocked them back with a wave of her hand as two beaming golden translucent barriers appeared and nullified their attacks.
They quickly jumped several steps to the side as they took their defensive positions as they eyed this enthralling maiden.
Feng Minyue was startled as she put her trembling fingers behind her back and was thinking, “I have already used 70% of my martial strength and she can neutralize my attacks so effortless? And what is that golden globe that had just materialized?”
Qin Keqin smiled weakly, “It is you…”
This enthralling maiden had mesmerizing eyes that could charm both men and women unknowingly. At this moment, she was smiling wryly as her mesmerizing eyes took a knowing glance at Qin Keqin, “Fan Yuqin. Or should I call you Fan Yuqing now? Or maybe your current alias Qin Keqin? Which one do you prefer?”
Feng Minyue was startled. This enthralling maiden seemed to know her sister saintess?
Even Lie Xingyuan was startled that Qin Keqin was not using her real name…
“Her real name is Fan Yuqing? Isn’t she…” she was startled.
There were once two heroines that had saved the Nine Celestial Fraternity from the Dark Descendant Disaster. One was the Nine Celestial Goddess Ye Jing and the other one was the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing. Since she was little, she had always idolized these two great saintesses. In fact, she idolized Great Saintess Yuqing more because she was the underdog and she was not as renowned as the Nine Celestial Goddess Ye Jing.
Qin Keqin smiled most bitterly, “Whatever. Why are you here?”
The enthralling maiden chuckled softly, “Have you forgotten that I am your senior? Is this your way of greeting your senior in this manner? Listen well, Lie Xingyuan is my disciple. You are not to disturb her in any way. I can promise you that she won’t intervene in your ways too. How about that?”
Qin Keqin smiled weakly, “Can I say no?”
“Of course you can’t.” The enthralling maiden smiled mesmerizingly. In the next instant she had taken Lie Xingyuan away in a flash.
When she was gone, Feng Minyue was trembling. “Sister saintess, who is this saintess? How can there be such a highly skilled super exponent in the celestial realm? If we were to fight her, what will be the outcome?”
Qin Keqin heaved a soft sigh, “Now we know who Lie Xingyuan’s master is now…” Then she replied to Feng Minyue, “Forget about fighting her. She will thrash us really badly if she is in the mood. She is the Heavenly Temptress Lie Qing. You may not have heard of her but she is a really badass super villainess in the lower realm before she had ascended to the celestial realm. Now she is an immortal cultivator in the immortal realm.”
Feng Minyue was shocked, “She is an immortal cultivator? How did she manage to descend here?”
Qin Keqin smiled weakly, “There are always many ways to descend from the immortal realm to the celestial realm but it is extremely expensive and difficult. She must have her reasons for descending to the celestial realm. But I didn’t think that she will accept a disciple….”
“Hmm,” Qin Keqin began to ponder, “Lie Qing…Lie Xingyuan…”
Feng Minyue said weakly, “Sister saintess, I am worried. Should we make a contingency plan with Xuan Danfeng to deal with her? After all, we are three seven realm experts. Surely we are able to deal with her?”
All of a sudden Qin Keqin was laughing softly, “No need. We are really not her match. Maybe the Great Goddess Alice or my mother consort will be able to fight her but we are definitely not on her level. Moreover, she is a better schemer than me. After all, I have learnt all my tricks from her when I was a child.”
Feng Minyue: …
“What is your relationship with her?” Feng Minyue asked.
Qin Keqin rolled her eyes as she chuckled, “She is my mother consort’s close sister and friend. So she won’t harm us. She is really my senior.”
Feng Minyue: …
Qin Keqin heaved a soft sigh as she looked at Feng Minyue, “Do you think that Lie Xingyuan hates me now? I really didn’t mean her any harm. It is not like I will kill her or something. After all, I didn’t kill anyone for ages.”
Feng Minyue smiled weakly, “You have been threatening her the whole day. Just now, you even suggest selling her to the brothel.”
Qin Keqin chuckled softly, “That doesn’t count. I was just kidding her. She looks so adorable when she is scared.”
“There seem to be a 360 turn when you saw that woman. You seem to be afraid of her.” Feng Minyue suggested quietly.
Qin Keqin laughed, “No way that I am afraid of any others…” But when she said that, she took a glance around her before heaving a soft sigh.
She added, “You know, if I am not the Devil Goddess over the three dark divine realms, things will be chaotic for the Nine Celestial Fraternity.”
Feng Minyue nodded, “That is for all. But the others may not understand. Lie Xingyuan may not understand. Even your Lu Qingyun may not understand you.”
Qin Keqin was looking up at the heavens as she muttered, “One day, I will go to the immortal realm and find my mother consort. I will ask her why…”
Feng Minyue was puzzled by what she had just said but she did not ask her why. It was because she knew that Qin Keqin was really a lonely maiden.
Qin Keqin was really afraid that this relationship would fail once again. She had always failed in all her previous relationships. If she were to fail once more then she hopes that she would cry in her mother consort’s embrace…
