Chapter 79: The Heavenly Fragrance Villa
The endless flower mountains range of the Heavenly Fragrance Mountains was where the Patriarch Clan Heavenly Fragrance Villa was situated and this was the place where the Patriarch Clan Heavenly Fragrance Villa ruled over its divine realm which was named after it.
There were nine patriarch clans that ruled over the nine divine realms that were collectively known as the Nine Celestial Fraternity. The three dark divine realms were conveniently excluded of course.
All these nine patriarch clans were first tier celestial powerhouses of the Nine Celestial Fraternity. Although the Patriarch Clan Heavenly Fragrance Villa was a first tier celestial clan and ruled over hundreds of second and third tier celestial clans in its divine realm, its divine territory was one of the smallest and at the same time it was ranked at the bottom three of the patriarch clans.
Among the nine patriarch clans, only the Patriarch Clan Heavenly Fragrance Villa consisted of wholly the females and men were strictly forbidden from its consecrated domain. The protégé grandmaster of the Heaven Fragrance Villa was the Heavenly Fragrance Princess and the present Heavenly Fragrance Princess was Saintess Su Shanyue.
At this moment two men were seeking audience with the Heavenly Fragrance Princess and they were nervous.
They were none other than Supremacy Wen Hongguang and Celestial Bai Laoxiong. As for the rest of their protégés, they were not even allowed to step within a hundred miles of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa and were told to wait at the borders.
The many palaces and halls of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa were all stately and there were hundreds of emotionless female protégés that were watching their every step until they had arrived at the main audience hall.
Supremacy Wen and Celestial Bai were actually quite surprised that the Heavenly Fragrance Princess was willing to meet them in person and they began to wonder in secret what she looked like.
They did not even dare to whisper to each other because there were a dozen female protégés who were escorting them, including a sixth realm expert.
As they waited in the audience hall, a beautiful and stately maiden with a phoenix and peony crown had quietly walked into the honor seat of the audience hall and she was followed by several high level cultivators with golden eyes.
Needless to say, she had to be the Heavenly Fragrance Princess because she was the only one wearing the white and blue heraldry of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa. Moreover she was the only one who was wearing a crown.
Supremacy Wen and Celestial Bai did not dare to be slow to greet her as they quickly said their obeisance, “Our humble greetings to the Heavenly Fragrance Princess!”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess Su Shanyue nodded quietly before she said coolly, “I’ve heard that you have a wrong to address. What is it?”
Supremacy Wen humbly said, “My Solitary Manor has always been a friendly celestial clan in New Empyrean City without any lofty ambitions. But overnight the despicable Heavens Ridge Villa had led an attack on the Solitary Manor. We are not a match for the despicable Qin Keqin who had just assumed a leadership position in the Heavens Ridge Villa. Therefore we are pleading with our patriarch leader to intervene on our behalf and to punish the evil-doers.”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess nodded, “Indeed I will act. It is considered a heinous transgression for any celestial clans in my divine realm to attack in such an open manner. I can close my eyes to small conflicts but this is something that I cannot close my eyes to.”
She pointed to a stack of scrolls that were in front of her, “I’ve already received words from many others on the happenings in New Empyrean City and the complaints against the Heavens Ridge Villa are in the hundreds.”
Supremacy Wen was smiling now. It seemed that Qin Keqin had not only offended him but several hundred others as well. It was no wonder that the Heavenly Fragrance Princess was willing to see him.
This time round, he had lost some of his anxiety and could lift his eyes upon the Heavenly Fragrance Princess. She was indeed a beauty and he wondered if she was attached. Perhaps he could work on his future with the Heavenly Fragrance Princess…
Therefore he quickly said with a crafty smile, “Not only is our Heavenly Fragrance Princess beautiful and wise, the glorious future of our divine realm will be bright with your leadership.”
He had purposely added ‘beautiful’ to curry her favor. It was not a lie at all and she was indeed a beautiful lady.
Even Celestial Bai was smiling broadly and praising her, “This is our honor to serve such a wise and righteous patriarch ruler.”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess smiled and was less icy than earlier before she asked, “This Qin Keqin. What does she looks like?”
Supremacy Wen smiled, “She is beautiful but not as beautiful as our Heavenly Fragrance Princess. This Qin Keqin has the heart of a venomous snake and is detestable to say the least.”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess waved her fingers and a protégé had walked to her with a scroll in her hands. “I happen to have a portrait here and wonder if she is Qin Keqin?”
Supremacy Wen was startled that the Heavenly Fragrance Princess actually had a portrait of Qin Keqin. This Qin Keqin must have so many enemies that even her portrait was delivered to the Heavenly Fragrance Villa.
The scroll was soon unfolded and the beautiful features of Qin Keqin could be seen. Although this portrait could not capture her true beauty but everyone could tell that this portrait was beautifully drawn and was a masterpiece painting.
Why would anyone even bother to spend so much effort to draw her portrait to such a fine and beautiful masterpiece level? The painter had to be someone who was a master of the arts and Supremacy Wen could not recall any master painter who had the skills to draw such a masterpiece.
“Do you recognize the person in this painting?”
Supremacy Wen immediately snapped out of his daze and said hatefully, “She is indeed Qin Keqin!”
Celestial Bai replied coldly at the same time, “Yes, it is her. She is the one that has led the attack on the Solitary Manor.”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess smiled, “You are wrong. She is not Qin Keqin.”
Supremacy Wen, Celestial Bai: ???
“She is the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing.” She simply added.
Supremacy Wen, Celestial Bai: !!!
She was the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing? The number one heroine in the Nine Celestial Fraternity? Surely there was a mistake somewhere right? They were all thinking at the same time…
Supremacy Wen was trembling all of a sudden as he started to recall his duel with her. Qin Keqin had displayed the ‘Heavens as One’ sword stance, a sword stance that only the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing was known to have displayed in the past. If she was really the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing then her realm level was that of a seventh realm expert and not a lowly fifth realm level…
Even Celestial Bai had a stunned expression as he muttered, “This…is impossible. She can’t be the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing. Her mother consort is Fairy Jade Light…”
“Qin Keqin is indeed the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing.”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess smiled coolly as she added, “As you know, my senior sister Feng Minyue is a close sister of the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing. As for me, I’ve known Fan Yuqing for a long time as well. In fact, she had recently helped me in my breakthrough to the saintess level.”
At this point of time, Supremacy Wen and Celestial Bai were both trembling with fear when they had heard her to this point. How did it turn out to be like this?! The Heavenly Fragrance Princess and Qin Keqin were actually friends?!!
“My senior sister had already informed me about the happenings in New Empyrean City. She had told me that her Sister Saintess Yuqing is too merciful and she is always leaving behind plenty of enemies to screw her later. Therefore she said that should the two of you dare to come here to complain to me then you are simply courting your own deaths. Since the two of you are here, you should know what to do, am I right?”
Supremacy Wen and Celestial Bai were both too stunned for words as they quickly fell upon their knees, “We are wrong! Please have mercies on us!…”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess was humming coldly, “You already had your chances to repent but you had used up all your chances. It is not only my senior sister wishes but it is also the wishes of everyone in the Heavenly Fragrance Villa that no one disturbs the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing. Therefore your fate is already sealed when you have come here.”
When her words had just ended, profound energies were zapping from the dozens of swords from the female protégés and the two men were instantly cut down.
“The Great Saintess Yuqing is a great benefactor of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa. No one is allowed to disturb her from having her fun and no one is allowed to screw her up. No one is allowed to know who she is.” The Heavenly Fragrance Princess Su Shanyue coldly added after the two men were cut down.
A female protégé asked, “What about their protégés? Should we deal with them as well?”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess replied indifferently, “No need. Let them go. They are just small fries.”
The Heavenly Fragrance Princess was smiling wryly. This was not the first time that her senior sister had been helping to get Fan Yuqing off her troubles. Fan Yuqing seemed to have a fondness for endless troubles while her senior sister had the unenviable task of ending her troubles for her in secret.
