Chapter 110: Lu Qingyun’s Determination
Qin Keqin had flashed to a room and she was growling softly. It was because all six of the grand elders were there.
All the grand elders were startled when they had been discovered by Qin Keqin and was about to flee the room when Qin Keqin had appeared in the next instant at the door. Her movement was too astonishing!
Qin Keqin asked in a slow manner, “You are all spying on me?”
All the grand elders were too stunned and sheepish to answer her.
Most of the celestial clans had their spying arrays in their grounds. The Heavens Ridge Villa had several as well and one of the spying arrays was in the guest room where the grand elders could secretly eavesdrop on their guests.
Kong Guxin had suggested, “Why don’t we listen in to their conversation? I am really curious who our sect leader really is. She is simply too mysterious.”
Yun Xing smiled weakly, “I think that isn’t a good idea, right?”
Ouyang Xue nodded, “If we are discovered then we will be in serious trouble with both the sect leader and our Patriarch Clan.”
Mu Han said, “Actually I know the spying array in the guest chamber. I had heard that it was once laid down by our founder the Great Saintess Yuhuan. It is so sophisticated and one of a kind that even if they were seventh realm expert cultivators, they will find it extremely difficult to detect it.”
Wang Ming nodded, “I agree. Therefore there is no chance for anyone to ever detect it. Our sect leader and the Heavenly Fragrance Heralds are all below the seventh realm.”
Kong Guxin turned to Shi Guanyin, “Guanyin, what do you think?”
Shi Guanyin laughed softly, “I say, there is no harm in taking a look. I mean, a listening ear.”
Yun Xing asked, “What if we are discovered?”
Shi Guanyin chuckled, “It is impossible for anyone to know. Come on.”
And that was what happened earlier.
Qin Keqin asked again, “Grand Elder Guanyin, what is going on?”
Shi Guanyin smiled weakly, “Sect leader, it is like this. We are afraid that you may come to harm so we are erm…checking…”
Qin Keqin said coldly, “What did you all hear?”
Shi Guanyin smiled weakly, “Nothing. We had just turned on the spying array and sect leader had discovered us.”
“Oh really?” Qin Keqin asked suspiciously. She thought, “I have not yet recovered my profound strength after transferring Yun’Er desolate force into Yan’Er. My perception is so dim lately. Alas, I guess that I must quickly cultivate to my peak soon…”
Then she said sternly, “No matter. Don’t let me hear a word of what you have heard.”
With that, she had left the room.
Shi Guanyin and all the grand elders heaved a soft sign of relief as they stared blankly at one another.
After making sure that Qin Keqin was not nearby, Mu Han was the first to speak and he was trembling. “Did you all hear that earlier? Our sect leader is actually the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing…”
Kong Guxin was trembling and he was ashen, “She is a seventh realm upper sacred saint and a great saintess. All along…”
“…we didn’t know that the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing is in our midst…” Shi Guanyin continued after him.
Yun Xing said nervously, “It’s no wonder that she is even an elder of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa. I’ve heard that she is a friend of the Matriarch Heavenly Fragrance Princess Feng Minyue…”
Wang Ming nervously said, “I hope that sect leader did not discover us.”
Ouyang Xue was too startled for words as she muttered, “She is a seventh realm expert and not…a fifth realm expert…and….” She silently added, “Senior Brother Qingyun knows of her identity as well. My gap with him is getting wider and wider. He is the disciple of the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing…”
All of a sudden Ouyang Xue was gasping aloud and everyone was startled.
“Xue’Er, what is wrong?” Yun Xing asked her.
Ouyang Xue looked at everyone with a weird expression, “I’ve just thought of something. Is sect leader is the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing, then who is the Great Saintess Yuhuan?”
Kong Guxin muttered, “I have heard from the previous grand elders that Great Saintess Yuhuan and her daughter great resemble each other…”
Wang Ming stammered as he looked nervously at everyone, “What if they are actually the same person?”
Mu Han gasped, “If they are the same person then we may have offended our founder several times over…”
Shi Guanyin smiled weakly, “This sophisticate spying array was setup by the Great Saintess Yuhuan herself…”
Everyone turned ashen. It was no wonder they were discovered so quickly…
Shi Guanyin said firmly as she looked at everyone, “From now onward, no one outside this room must be allowed to know who she is. It is a secret, alright? Promise?”
All the grand elders were nodding as they readily agreed.
Yun Xing stared at Mu Han, “Hey you. You are always such a gossiper. Make sure that you keep your mouth shut.”
Mu Han protested weakly, “When did I become a gossiper? You know that I am not…”
Yun Xing smiled bitterly, “Have you forgotten so fast that you have told us that our sect leader and senior brother are holding hands and…sharing kisses?”
Mu Han smiled weakly, “Erm…that is another matter…”
Outside the room, Qin Keqin had a stunned look when she had heard Yun Xing. How on earth did they know about Lu Qingyun and her?
After leaving the room, she had concealed her aura and it seemed to everyone that she was gone but she had quietly waited outside the room to listen in.
Qin Keqin: …
“They even know that we are together…this is not a secret anymore…” Qin Keqin had a slight flush on her cheeks before she walked away quietly.
When she had returned to the guest chamber, everyone was still waiting for her.
Lu Qingyun was the first to ask her, “Keqin, is there someone listening in to us?”
Qin Keqin smiled, “Nothing. I was mistaken and was checking.”
Shen Yufeng heaved a sigh of relief, “This matter is really severe so the less people that knows about it the better.”
Lu Qingyun said quietly as he looked at Qin Keqin, “I just have a discussion with Supremacy Yufeng and the others. Keqin, I have decided to go to the Red Death Valley to help investigate the strange happening.”
Qin Keqin smiled weakly, “Yun’Er, it is too dangerous for you to go alone.”
Lu Qingyun said, “I won’t be alone. Supremacy Yufeng and the rest will be aiding me from the outside. All I need is to activate the secret transmission and they will be able to find me.”
Qin Keqin shook her head, “You don’t understand how dangerous it will be. I think…”
“Keqin,” Lu Qingyun said earnestly. “It is not only to investigate this strange happening. But I hope to find some rare herbs that are only available in the Red Death Valley. This is something that I have long wanted to do in the past but I am not strong enough to venture there alone. Moreover, I really need an experiential mission like this to increase my exposure to dangers and to increase my experience. Only then will I be strong and be strong to protect you one day. Do you understand?”
Qin Keqin was startled when she had heard him, “Yun’Er…”
Lu Qingyun said gently, “Alright, Keqin? Please.”
Qin Keqin tiptoed lightly as she looked blankly at him, “Mm…alright…”
Shen Yufeng and the others were startled as they looked at one another; they had never seen the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing displaying such a body language before and she looked like her soul was being sucked in by Lu Qingyun when he had pleaded with her.
They were all thinking; the two of them were a couple? Also they had never heard of a disciple addressing the name of their master directly. This was considered to be a taboo and a great disrespect…
Lu Qingyun and Qin Keqin were now walking along the corridor.
As they walked, Qin Keqin was extremely quietly.
All of a sudden Lu Qingyun had caught hold of her hands, “Keqin, are you unhappy with me?”
Qin Keqin looked at him, “No Yun’Er. I just have an ominous feeling on this and I can’t do a thing.”
Lu Qingyun smiled, “I will be alright. Don’t worry. I am a strong cultivator now.”
Qin Keqin smiled weakly, “No matter how strong you are, there are numerous strong fifth, sixth and seventh cultivators all over the place. Many of them do not cultivate the heart and they are extremely vicious. It is just that you have no seen them yet and some of them are even hiding behind the façade of the righteous celestial clans, waiting to bring you down at every single step.”
Lu Qingyun nodded, “I will be careful. I believe that the unrighteous will never be able to triumph over the righteous. Take the Golden Mask Devil Goddess for example. Although she had reigned for a while but eventually she is forced to go into hiding. This is the strength of the righteous heart.”
Qin Keqin: …
She returned a sheepish look before saying, “How did you know that she is in hiding? You are not her. Maybe she is just biding her time to do more evil.”
Lu Qingyun laughed softly, “But it is a fact that she is in hiding now.”
Qin Keqin smiled weakly, “Yun’Er, what if one day you realize that I am not what I am? And that I am not as good as you think? Maybe I am even as bad as the Devil Goddess. Will you still like me?”
Lu Qingyun smiled, “You are not the Devil Goddess. You are the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing, a heroine of the Nine Celestial Fraternity. So there is no chance for you to be as bad as the Devil Goddess.”
Qin Keqin weakly said with a soft sigh, “You are not answering me…”
Lu Qingyun said with a soft chuckle, “Of course I will love my Keqin…” To prove it, he had leaned close to her and had put his hand on her back to pull her close to him.
Qin Keqin was gasping when Lu Qingyun had suddenly kissed her on her forehead as he muttered, “I really love you Keqin and I don’t want to lose you…”
Qin Keqin nodded quietly before she said, “Then you’ve better come back alive. You better! In the meantime I’m going to enter a short seclusion to regain my profound strength.”
All of a sudden she was gasping aloud because Lu Qingyun had slipped his hand down her back and touching her butt. Then he had pulled her skirt up as he slipped his hand inside and was feeling her inside…
Lu Qingyun was sheepish, “Keqin, I’m sorry. I…can’t control myself when I am with you…”
Qin Keqin quickly pushed him away as she chuckled, “You like to touch me there, right? But first you got to stay alive first. When you are back alive, I will let you have your three minutes of fun.”
Lu Qingyun stammered, “Really?!”
Qin Keqin rolled her eyes and said softly, “You are at that exploration age now, right? And you are finding it hard to control your beastly urges? When you are back, I will let you release it.”
Lu Qingyun’s heart was throbbing hard and he was completely flustered, “Really…” It was like his wet dreams that had come true…
All of a sudden Xuan Danfeng was whispering in secret to Qin Keqin, “Sister Yuqing, hurry and tell us…which part he touched? We have heard it loud and clear…are you turn on by the way…hehe…”
Feng Minyue was gasping, “Sister Saintess Yuqing, you are dating with Lu Qingyun now? We didn’t know…and you are offering yourself to him?…”
All of a sudden Qin Keqin was flustered too as she had suddenly remembered that Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng were both still listening into her conversation. With a secret finger gesture, she had turned off the transmission as she said bitterly to herself. “Now my honor is all gone….and they knows…I got a feeling that today is really my most unlucky day…”
