Chapter 68: Great Saintess Feng Minyue
Lie Xingyuan thought that there was something between Lu Qingyun and Qin Keqin when they had returned. It was because they were constantly making eye contacts with each other.
When they were alone in the room, Qin Keqin had suddenly said to her as she took out an envelope. “Xingyuan, this is a sealed letter for the eyes of your master. It is from an old friend of your master. Give it to her and don’t let this letter be read by any others.”
Lie Xingyuan curiously took the letter as she said, “Yes, sect leader…”
Qin Keqin suddenly smiled to her, “Xingyuan, why don’t you drop the sect leader title and address me as your sister when we are alone?”
Lie Xingyuan was startled, “This won’t do. You are our sect leader and your position is lofty…”
But Qin Keqin interrupted with an enchanting smile, “Don’t worry about that, Sister Xingyuan. You can address me as your Sister Keqin. This is my request and moreover, we will be staying in the same abode for quite a while.”
Lie Xingyuan hesitated for a while before she said quietly, “Sister Keqin…”
Qin Keqin chuckled as she clapped her hands. They were actually half-sisters but Qin Keqin was not going to tell her yet. But she was happy enough to acknowledge her as her sister now because Lie Xingyuan was not a love threat to her anymore, at least by the look of the current situation.
Lie Xingyuan asked quietly, “Will Sister Keqin stays a little longer this time round?”
Qin Keqin chuckled as she nodded, “The martial tournament is next month and is less than a month’s time. I will be staying here to instruct Qingyun.”
Lie Xingyuan nodded as she said, “With sect leader around, I’m sure that senior brother will be able to benefit from your hindsight and he will be able to win a place in the martial tournament.”
“That is for sure!” Qin Keqin laughed softly.
Then she rolled her eyes before saying, “I am going to my room first.”
When she had returned to her room, she had immediately took out a transmission and whispered, “Minyue, I need your help to settle something for me. And find Zhou Hai as well.”
“Oh?” Feng Minyue answered. “You sound so urgent? Should I let Danfeng knows?”
Qin Keqin replied with a soft laugh, “That is because something has cropped out suddenly in my celestial clan. Let Danfeng have her maiden sleep. She should be dead drunk for many days. This time, only you can help me…”
The Solitary Manor;
The elders of the Solitary Manor had all gathered in the hall and they were debating hotly.
It was because Supremacy Wen had sent a messenger to request that the elders of the Solitary Manor and the new leadership of the Solitary Manor to support his return. When he had returned, they would all seek vendetta on the Heavens Ridge Villa once more.
Elder Yan Chiyou was now the new leader of the Solitary Manor and his brother Elder Yan Chilong was the acting leader. The two of them were also the two golden celestial elders of the Solitary Manor.
Right now, there was an assembly of more than thirty elders who were debating hotly.
“Why should we fear the Heavens Ridge Villa?”
“Our honor and pride have been trampled by the Heavens Ridge Villa…”
“Once Supremacy Wen has regained his strength, we can trample on the Heavens Ridge Villa anytime. They are not our match…”
“Have you forgotten that Old Saint Wen has warned us not to act against the Heavens Ridge Villa?”
“But if Old Saint Wen knows that the Heavens Ridge Villa had attacked us then this will be a different matter entirely…”
“So you are saying that we are not going to avenge our humiliations?”
The voices that were raised to fight the Heavens Ridge Villa were greater than the pacifists.
An elder angrily stepped forward, “Elder Chiyou, are you going to stand up for the Solitary Manor? Or have you forgotten who our Manor Grandmaster Wen is?”
Elder Yan Chiyou was at a loss. Although he was a powerful golden celestial but the injuries that he had received from the mysterious lone assailant was not light at all.
The Heavens Ridge Villa had picked a time to attack when all their strongest cultivation experts were all injured and were demoralized. That was why their fighting ranks were quickly overwhelmed by the vengeful attacks of the Heavens Ridge Villa.
If the Solitary Manor were to attack the home ground of the Heavens Ridge Villa, it was as good as mounting a suicidal attack.
All of a sudden ‘Old Saint Wen’ had stepped into the hall with a lovely peerless maiden.
He was smiling coldly, “What? Who gives you the permission to attack the Heavens Ridge Villa?”
“Old Saint Wen…” Many of the elders greeted respectfully.
The same angry elder said, “Old Saint Wen, our pride and honor have been trampled by the Heavens Ridge Villa. Do you know that they have actually attacked us? We can’t let this insult go just like this. In fact, we should even report them to the Heavenly Fragrance Villa for attacking a brotherly celestial clan so boldly. They have transgressed the celestial laws of the Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm and we can’t let it pass just this!”
When he had said that, many of the elders were nodding and their angers were further aroused by him.
But Old Saint Wen said calmly, “I have heard of the attack too. However if it isn’t Wen Hongguang to blame in the first place, will the Heavens Ridge Villa be this outrageous?”
All the elders were startled that Old Saint Wen was speaking for the Heavens Ridge Villa. They had remembered that he was also the one that had struck down Supremacy Wen and if it was not because of the severity of Supremacy Wen’s injuries, would the Heavens Ridge Villa have succeeded in their attacks?
The elders were now beginning to suspect that this Old Saint Wen, who was supposedly to be their old patriarch, was a total fake!
It was because there was no reason why he should be helping any outsider and moreover this was his very own celestial clan!
Old Saint Wen knew what they were thinking as he laughed coldly, “So you want me to take actions on the Heavens Ridge Villa? For example, by demolishing them?”
One of the elders laughed coldly, “That will be the best. If old patriarch is able to lend a helping hand then there is no reason for the Heavens Ridge Villa to exist.”
Almost all the elders were nodding at the same time. Since the old patriarch was a seventh realm expert, destroying the Heavens Ridge Villa was as easy as crushing an ant.
Some of the elders were actually looking at Old Saint Wen with a look of disdain. It was because he was the very reason why the Solitary Manor was in this state and moreover today he had also a peerless maiden in his company. From the look of it, this Old Saint Wen was actually a lecherous man and he could even sacrifice his own clan because of his lusts.
Another elder said coldly, “It is enough that old patriarch refuses to help your clan that is in trouble but you have to bring a common courtesan with you. Isn’t this too disgraceful-”
But before he could finish what he was saying, the lovely peerless maiden had suddenly moved her sleeves and fingers. Almost immediately all the elders were struck by her profound force and were sent flying all across the hall!
Even the furniture was all ripped apart by her profound strength!
And this profound strength of hers clearly marked her as a seventh realm expert!
All the elders were shocked and startled. Even Yan Chiyou and Yan Chilong were helpless when she had displayed her profound strength.
Everyone was soon startled and was stammering with fright, “Who is she…”
Old Saint Wen laughed coldly, “Who is she? You dare to call Great Saintess Feng Minyue as a common courtesan? You must be having a death wish!”
When everyone heard that this lovely peerless maiden was the Great Saintess Feng Minyue, they had all grown pale immediately. Who was the Great Saintess Feng Minyue? She was the previous Heavenly Fragrance Princess of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa and the ruler of the Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm. It was said that she had long retired into reclusion but her sheer presence alone prevented the other divine realms from having lofty thoughts on the Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm. What was more, she was also said to be the only great saintess in the entire Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm.
The big four powerhouses could not compare to even a single Heavenly Fragrance Villa. None of the celestial celestials could compare too. It was because the Heavenly Fragrance Villa was a first tier celestial clan and was the overlord of the entire Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm. The big four powerhouses were only second tier celestial clans that could be crushed like ants.
And in the Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm, all the celestial clans had to obey the orders of their patriarch clan and that was none other than the Heavenly Fragrance Villa.
“Great Saintess Feng?!”
“Is she really Great Saintess Feng?!”
Great Saintess Feng Minyue unsheathed her divine sword with a brilliant light as her sword energies pierced the hearts of the elders, “Do not bother the Heavens Ridge Villa again or I shall wipe out the Solitary Manor.”
Then she tossed the heavenly fragrance token on the ground, “Do not tell anyone that I’ve been here. Is that understood?”
When the elders saw her divine sword and the heavenly fragrance token, they knew immediately that she was indeed Great Saintess Feng Minyue and they were all trembling.
Yan Chiyou was stammering nonstop, “She is indeed the Heavenly Fragrance Princess…we deserve death for not recognizing your grace…”
Even without the heavenly fragrance token, the minute that Feng Minyue had displayed her divine sword and her profound aura, most of the elders were suddenly aware that this peerless maiden was a seventh realm expert with a considerable background. They had all known that Feng Minyue was an astonishing beauty and after witnessing her true appearance today, it was indeed true after all.
Feng Minyue had already turned around to leave while ‘Old Saint Wen’ was cursing the elders, “You have better heed Great Saintess Feng’s warnings or else even I can’t promise that I can keep the Solitary Manor intact!”
All the elders were now bowing on the ground as they humbly said, “Yes, yes…yes…”
