Chapter 66: The Heaveness

The veiled maiden in white asked quietly as she looked at Qin Keqin with her alluring eyes, “So your current name is Qin Keqin and you have a disciple now? This is so unlike you. And your disciple is actually a man? Or is he your man?”

Qin Keqin was struck speechless by her and she was stammering, “I…erm…who says he is my man? Nonsense…”

“Because I don’t believe you at all,” the veiled maiden in white simply said.

Qin Keqin: …

“Great Aunt-” Qin Keqin protested immediately but the veiled maiden in white interrupted softly, “You may address me by my immortal title the Heaveness. I have expected none the less from you.”

Qin Keqin muttered almost incoherently, “Why are you so unfriendly all of a sudden?”

The Heaveness said coolly, “From today onward, I will be Fairy Jade Light and I will be your mother consort and master.”

Qin Keqin was startled as she protested immediately, “This…won’t do…at all…”

The Heaveness said coolly as she browsed the room, “Didn’t you say that you want to be a senior protégé sister of Ye Jing? This is your one and only chance.”

Qin Keqin was immediately delighted as she quickly asked, “Do you mean it? Seriously?”

The Heaveness lifted her fingers to browse several of the manuals that were on the table, “Will I lie to you?”

Qin Keqin rolled her eyes as she thought, “Several times in the past…” but she quickly said, “No, I trust the Great Goddess Heaveness the most.”

The Heaveness smiled coolly, “Excellent!”

But Qin Keqin asked, “But I don’t understand. Why brings you here? I mean I thought that…”

All of a sudden she had remembered the yellow thunderstorms and asked, “Don’t tell me the signs in the heavens have to do with you?”

The Heaveness replied coolly, “That’s right. That is because I’ve been disposed from my heavenly throne in the heavens and the first person that I have thought of, is you.”

Qin Keqin: …

“What exactly has happened?” she asked. Then with a sly smile, she said. “Well, maybe I can help you? For a price of course.”

The Heaveness had raised her fingers immediately while Qin Keqin had suddenly dodged out of her way with a giggle, “I am only joking!” Then she asked again, “So what exactly happens anyway?”

The Heaveness sat down and knitted her eyebrows, “This is all your father’s fault.” Then she looked at her and said, “Or rather Ye Jing and you have a hand in my downfall as well.”

Qin Keqin: …

“What did we do? I didn’t do anything for a long time already…it must be Ye Jing’s fault for sure…” Qin Keqin protested her innocence immediately.

The Heaveness said bitterly, “The romance stories that you have given me to take to the immortal realm had cause great unhappiness in the immortal realm and this caused your sovereign father to be enraged.”

Qin Keqin: ???

The Heaveness continued in a bitter tone, “The romance stories are quite popular and I’ve made quite a tidy amount of spirit stones but your father, the Great God Yi Ping has labeled the stories as heresy. He says that I am creating a new social disorder by promoting true love, one consort order and this caused an upheaval in the immortal realm. He even accuses me of leading the immortals astray with non-existence romantic notions and profiteering from the unrest. So we have a quarrel and…”

She paused for a while before she said wryly, “And I have divorced him.”

Qin Keqin was wordless, “You what?!”

But she quickly growled softly, “He is wrong for sure. Why should a man need so many consorts for? I’m with you there.”

“Precisely,” the Heaveness replied melancholy.

“So how long will you be staying?” Qin Keqin asked with a weak smile.

The Heaveness smiled coldly, “You are already thinking of driving me away this soon?”

Qin Keqin smiled weakly as she thought, “Of course. I can’t have my freedom restricted by you and moreover, you are a fallen great goddess now and have no use to me anymore.”

The Heaveness looked at her and said, “I know what you are thinking. But you won’t find me leaving so soon. In fact, I will be staying for as long as I like.”

Qin Keqin rolled her eyes and chuckled softly, “Welcome, welcome…” But she was actually cursing secretly.

Then she asked with a sly smile, “I wonder how much that you have made in the immortal realm? You have promised me a 20% commission.”

The Heaveness said coolly, “I will honor my promise but unfortunately, your father is so unhappy with what I did that he has confiscated all my wealth.”

Qin Keqin stammered out, “What?! He can’t do that. This is an extremely mean act and an act of war!”

The Heaveness nodded, “This is exactly what I have thought so too. Therefore we are going to fight back and dethrone him. You will join me of course.”

Qin Keqin was startled, “Mm, you can’t be serious, am I right?”

The Heaveness smiled alluringly, “I am perfectly serious about it.”

Qin Keqin muttered, “I have not enjoyed myself yet and have no death wish to go against the immortals. Can I not be involved in this?”

The Heaveness said coldly, “No, you can’t. You know that since I’m here, I can perfectly make a living hell for you and your man.”

Qin Keqin smiled bitterly, “You are such a bully…”

“Indeed I am.”

Then the Heaveness added, “One more thing, I need you to find Lie Qing, my sister. She is in the Nine Celestial Fraternity now. Exactly where, I do not know. With her help, we will be one step closer to achieve our objectives.”

Qin Keqin was speechless as she thought, “That will be ten thousand steps actually…” but she gave a faint smile, “I think I do know where she is. I have seen her recently actually.”

The Heaveness was startled, “Really? Quick, bring me to her!”

Qin Keqin smiled, “But first, you have to help me with some questions first. Like, how did you meet Lu Qingyun? And what did you say to him?”

The Heaveness smiled, “It seems that you have been hiding a lot of things from him, am I right? And you are afraid that I may expose your cover? Well, it may already been too late.”

Qin Keqin quietly said, “We shall see about it first.”

“Well, I see him confronting the Solitary Manor alone. I did not want to intervene but I did recognize the divine sword that was in his hands as the one that I had given to you. So I had seized him to ask some questions because I was looking for you.”

Qin Keqin was startled and was perplexed, “Why did he go alone to the Solitary Manor for?”

Then with an anxious look, she said. “Tell me more what else…”
