Chapter 71: Qin Keqin Background
The Heaveness was smiling alluringly to Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng, “So this is your ‘hideout’? I’m beginning to like this place. But why are there so many scrying arrays here? You are spying on your guests?”
By now, Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng knew that the white veiled maiden was the Heaveness and they were deferential to her. And who was the Heaveness?
The Heaveness was the successor to the Great Goddess Fan Tian, the grand matriarch of the Three Known Realms. She was a beyond seventh realm expert, an immortal and a great goddess. In the celestial realm, the renown of the Heaveness was known to all the celestials. It was because she was one of the few great goddesses that could move freely from the immortal realm to the celestial realm. At the same time she was also said to be one of the first celestials in the Celestial Realm.
In the celestial lore of the Celestial Realm, the immortals had their own ranking as well. The Great Goddess was at the top of the female immortals, followed by Goddess, Sagess and Fairy. Without a doubt the Heaveness was also known as the Great Goddess Heaveness.
Even an upper seventh realm saint level cultivator was nothing in her eyes.
Several centuries ago, the Heaveness had taken a celestial cultivator as her successor and that was the Nine Celestial Goddess Ye Jing. Although Ye Jing had ‘Goddess’ in her title, it was just an honorable title and she was actually a great saintess of the upper seventh realm level.
As for Qin Keqin or Fan Yuqing, her mother consort was the Great Goddess Fan Tian. She was the true daughter of the heavens because of her lofty status as the only daughter to the Great Goddess Fan Tian. But like all the children of the immortals, she was abandoned in the Celestial Realm because the immortal realm had no divine calamity to further the cultivation level of the cultivators.
One must know that the immortals had a pinnacle existence. Due to their lofty cultivation, it was nearly impossible for them to give birth to their own kind. And Fan Yuqing existence was an unbelievable anomaly. That was why she was not brought up in the Immortal Realm but was just a ‘normal’ celestial practitioner in the Celestial Realm.
But this ‘normal’ celestial practitioner was not normal at all. Her pace of cultivation soon outpaced any of the celestials and she was the genius of the geniuses. By the time she was eighteen, she was already a saintess and by the time she was twenty, she was a great saintess.
But it was also during this time that Fan Yuqing had entered her most rebellious phase of her life. She was the youngest great saintess ever known and she had thought that the whole Nine Celestial Fraternity was her playground. Before anyone could stop her, she had become the Golden Mask Devil Goddess that had terrorized the entire Nine Celestial Fraternity.
Her ‘fun’ had abruptly ended after a few short years after she was chased down the bottomless abyss by her enemies. Even her mother consort the Great Goddess Fan Tian had thought that her only daughter had perished and was deeply grieved.
It was not until Ye Jing had found her and rescued her that Fan Yuqing had a more positive image. She was actually just an ‘accidental heroine’ that aided the Nine Celestial Fraternity in the fight against the Devil Isle and the Dark Descendant Calamity.
The reason why she had aided Ye Jing was because she had long known about the Dark Descendant Calamity that would befall to the Celestial Fraternity. She had thought that she would be able to make a difference but being a half-immortal, she had actually caused it to worsen. That was the reason why she had taken the guise of the Golden Mask Devil Goddess.
When Fan Yuqing was the Devil Goddess, she had literally forced the divine realms of the Nine Celestial Fraternity to host banquets after banquets whenever she had gone to. Although she was a known villainess for her antics, she also had many followers. Among them were Zhou Hai and even Xuan Danfeng.
Xuan Danfeng was not a true follower of hers. But she enjoyed appreciating wines and she was a socialite. Whenever the Devil Goddess was, there would be free banquets, wines and guests. And whenever the Devil Goddess was, there would be Xuan Danfeng.
At one point, Fan Yuqing was even envious of Xuan Danfeng’s good figure and beauty that she had hung her upside down on a tree for three days but that was another story…
But the cultivators of the Nine Celestial Fraternity were not good-for-nothing cultivators and would not take it lying down. Therefore the number one heroine of the time, Saintess Mu Huiyin had led many cultivation experts to fight her and finally succeeded in forcing her to jump off to the bottomless abyss.
Saintess Mu Huiyin could not have succeeded if Fan Yuqing did not have an earlier fight with Celestial Yuehua, a renowned beauty. Because of her internal injuries, she was forced to be on the run by Saintess Mu Huiyin and the hundreds of cultivation experts before finally forced to jump into the bottomless abyss.
In the bottomless abyss, she was forced to remain in a half-dead state for the next two centuries until Ye Jing and Dugu Fang had found her.
It was also at this time that she had changed from her name from Fan Yuqin to Fan Yuqing.
Many things had happened since then and Fan Yuqing soon took up the mantle of the Devil Goddess once more and united the three dark divine realms under her banner while the Nine Celestial Goddess Ye Jing was the spiritual alliance leader of the nine patriarch divine realms.
In the eyes of the others, the Devil Goddess and the Nine Celestial Goddess were the opposite poles that were fighting on opposite ends. The truth was that they were actually quite close while maintaining their rivalries.
In fact, they had conspired with the Heaveness to sell the romance stories that could be found in the Celestial Realm to the Immortal Realm…
Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly, “A little gossip here and there helps to pass the time for us.”
The Heaveness smiled coldly, “Only Yuqing can think of this. She must really be so bored.”
Then she was smiling amicably, “My sister is finally here.”
A mesmerizing maiden was suddenly at the entrance and she had returned a smile.
Xuan Danfeng and Feng Minyue were startled. It was because there was no indication of her coming and the celestial arrays seemed to have failed to detect her approach?!
The Heaveness said, “Lie Qing, you are finally here.”
Lie Qing took a slow stroll as she approached her with a mesmerizing smile, “It has been such a long time. Lingfeng, what brings you here to the Celestial Realm? I saw your letter. Do you really need my help?”
The Heaveness smiled wryly, “I really do need your help.”
Feng Minyue was gasping. She had of course recognized this ‘Lie Qing’ as Lie Xingyuan’s master and she had met her once in the forest.
The Heaveness turned to say to Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng, “This is the Great Goddess Heavenly Temptress.”
Xuan Danfeng was gasping as well. Great Goddess was a lofty existence in the Immortal Realm. With just a look, Xuan Danfeng knew that this Lie Qing was not a celestial cultivator but an immortal cultivator.
There were actually two great goddesses that had gathered in this small place?
The Heaveness spoke quietly, “I am going to revolt against the heavens. I am going to teach him a lesson.”
Lie Qing looked at her with a wryly smile, “Oh? With just the four of us?”
The Heaveness smiled, “Don’t forget to include Yuqing too.”
Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng were quite panicky. Did they just hear that the Heaveness was going to revolt against the Heavens?!
Lie Qing shook her head, “You are pushing Yuqing into the burning furnace. But…I like the idea. So what is our first move?”
The Heaveness smiled, “Welcome aboard! You shall assume the mantle of the Devil Goddess and we shall create havocs in the Nine Celestial Fraternity as our first step.”
Feng Minyue, Xuan Danfeng: !!!
Lie Qing laughed softly, “It seems that my sister knows me the best. There are none who is better than I who can be a super villainess. After all, I am a real badass super villainess in the past.”
Xuan Danfeng and Feng Minyue were completely stunned. It was totally unexpected and they did not even know what was going on…
Was the Heaveness not a champion of righteousness in the Celestial Realm? Why was she going against the Heavens now?
More importantly, why were they even involved without their approvals?!
But there were nothing they could do. It was because the Heaveness had completely become their new mistress without Qin Keqin knowing. But even if Qin Keqin knows, there was probably nothing she could do.
