Chapter 85: Against the Heavens
When Qin Keqin had returned to the hideout, she had a weird feeling that something was amiss.
The Heaveness was already waiting for her.
Beside Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng who were also in the room, there was the Heavenly Temptress Lie Qing as well.
“Lingfeng, she is finally here.” The Heavenly Temptress said mesmerizingly.
The true name of the Heaveness was Ji Lingfeng and that was her mortal name before she had ascended to the Celestial Realm.
Qin Keqin smiled, “Why are you looking for me so urgently?”
But the Heaveness interrupted softly, “Why did you turn off your transmission?”
Qin Keqin chuckled as she turned to look at Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng, “You will not believe it. I was invited to be crowned as the top beauty of New Empyrean City today. Isn’t this something to be happy about? So I’ve turned off the transmission so that I can fully focus on this event.”
All of a sudden she noticed that everyone was not smiling but was looking quietly at her.
“Huh? What is wrong?” Qin Keqin asked.
The Heaveness smiled coldly, “I am here to tell you your Aunt Lie Qing will be assuming your identity as the Devil Goddess. Therefore I want you to hand over all your Devil Goddess’ secrets to her from this day onward. From now onward, we will be fighting against the heavens.”
Qin Keqin: …
The Heavenly Temptress shrugged her shoulders as she smiled, “This is the will of the Heaveness. So you have to heed her commands.”
Qin Keqin was stunned as she muttered, “No way! No way that I’m going to do this.” Then she looked at her sister saintesses, “Say something please.”
Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng both heaved a soft sigh, “We are with the Heaveness.”
Qin Keqin: …
She had just gone away for a few days and her whole place was taken by the Heaveness and even her sister saintesses had revolted against her?!
Her eyes had turned bleary red as she stared blankly at Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng, “We have been companions and sisters for so many years now. So all of you are now betraying me?”
Feng Minyue pursued her lips, “Sister Saintess Yuqing, it isn’t what you think it is…”
Qin Keqin interrupted with a soft laugh, “It isn’t what I think it is? Then why aren’t you siding with me? Because you are afraid of two mere immortals?”
The Heaveness said coolly, “This mere immortal here can crush you like you an ant.”
Qin Keqin hummed coldly, “Oh really? We will only know if we have sparred.”
The Heavenly Temptress said, “Then you have to fight me first.”
Qin Keqin looked hatefully at the Heavenly Temptress, “Go away! This is just between the Heaveness and me!”
“Is it because you cannot outfight me and that’s why you are challenging the Heaveness instead?” the Heavenly Temptress coolly said. “You well know that her martial skills are just so and so only.”
The Heaveness weakly smiled, “Even this so and so is enough to handle a brat like her.”
“I am a brat?!” Qin Keqin hummed coldly, “I am already several centuries old now. Don’t think because you are my senior and the sister to my mother consort, you can bully me like this! Don’ t forget that I have two immortal artefacts from the Jade Emperor in my hands. If you want to be the Devil Goddess then you have to first defeat me-”
All of a sudden the Heavenly Temptress had raised her fingers and immediately three golden globes of light had streaked across the room to aim at Qin Keqin. “The one that is going to be Devil Goddess is right here!”
As Qin Keqin raised her white flute to deflect the golden globes, she was forced to take three steps backward and her sword arm was trembling.
The Heavenly Temptress said coolly, “So what if you have an immortal artefact or two in your hands? Your profound strength is still so lacking.”
Qin Keqin shot everyone a hateful glance, “Fine! I’ll leave. You can be the Devil Goddess but I’m not going to help you by telling any of you my secrets!”
With that she had quickly disappeared.
The Heaveness sighed softly, “Do you think we are too much to her?”
The Heavenly Temptress replied softly, “She needs to be taught a lesson or two to rein in her ill-temperament.”
Feng Minyue had stepped forward, “Your Heaveness, please pardon me for saying so. You are indeed too much.”
The Heaveness: …
Xuan Danfeng was startled, “Minyue, come back. You’re being disrespectful…”
But Feng Minyue continued bravely, “Sister Saintess Yuqing is not someone who do not listen to reasons. She just needs some coercion. Maybe you’ve been an immortal for too long that you’ve forgotten what it means to be a mortal. You can’t just take away her hard earned position without giving her any reasons. Even if you are someone in a higher position than her and is her senior, you can’t make this decision for her.”
Then she lowered her glances as she said in a low voice, “She will be hurt. She is someone who is easily hurt. I’ve known her for so many years now. She is really hurt today. She may not even forgive Danfeng and me for what we have done today.”
Xuan Danfeng: …
Feng Minyue was trembling, “I want to company my Sister Saintess Yuqing till the end of time. Even if I do not get to ascend to the Immortal Realm, it is alright to me. There is nothing more comforting than being with her. Even though she often gets herself into plenty of troubles but that’s alright, so long as she enjoys herself. Did you see her expression earlier? She was really happy just now but suddenly we have hurt her.”
The Heaveness: …
The Heaveness was suddenly sighing softly, “I have really forgotten what it is to experience mortal joys and pains…”
Then she raised her eyes to say sharply, “Someone is here. It is him?”
Feng Minyue nodded, “It is Lu Qingyun. I’ll go and take a look.”
Nothing escaped the perceptions of these high level cultivation experts even though Lu Qingyun had only just reached the entrance of the Heavenly Lotus Teahouse.
As Lu Qingyun had just stepped into the Heavenly Lotus Teahouse, Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng had appeared.
Feng Minyue said, “Keqin has just left. She may have returned to the Heavens Ridge Villa now.”
Lu Qingyun was sweating heavily and he had exhausted all his profound strength as he had run all the way here from the Clear Sky Pavilion.
He blinked his eyes blankly and said, “Thanks. I’ll look for her then…”
With that, he had staggered to the entrance and was making another run to look for Qin Keqin.
Feng Minyue looked gently at Xuan Danfeng, “What is love that is so compelling?”
Xuan Danfeng was smiling bitterly, “I hope that something good may come out of this.”
But they could not say more because this was Qin Keqin’s greatest secret and there were two immortals who could hear them.
In this entire three known realms, only the three of them really knew who Lu Qingyun really was and he was the greatest enemy of the righteous immortals!
