Chapter 133: The Sunflower Sacred Skill
Tang Bufan and Qiuxiang Huan were walking together in the back mountains of the Clear Sky Pavilion.
Tang Bufan was looking really pale and weak. He had thought that he could be able to enjoy the nights with a desirable maiden like Qiuxiang Huan but now his dreams had been shattered.
Qiuxiang Huan said gently to him, “Bufan, don’t worry. Once you have reached the fifth realm of cultivation, your manhood will be able to restore. So don’t think too much of it. Isn’t it better this way? Because you are a eunuch now, there is no need for us to fear any gossips when we are together.”
Tang Bufan was smiling bitterly. He was only a third realm expert now. Even with the primordial yin that he had obtained from Qiuxiang Huan, he was only a middle third realm expert. It may take him a hundred years at the soonest in order to become a fifth realm expert.
“Bufan, don’t blame my mother consort. She has my interest in her heart, alright?” Qiuxiang Huan said quietly.
Tang Bufan smiled weakly, “I dare not! Huan, if I can be with you forever then I will be content.”
“Good.” Qiuxiang returned him a gentle smile.
“Bufan, actually I have asked you out to show you a secret.” Qiuxiang Huan said as she took out a golden scroll that had golden inscriptions on it.
Tang Bufan was startled, “What is it?”
Qiuxiang Huan said as she placed the golden scroll in his hands, “This is the Sunflower Sacred Skill. Have you heard of it?”
Tang Bufan was astonished and his eyes were flashing greedily. “Yes, I have…heard of it…”
The Sunflower Sacred Skill was a legendary lost internal martial art that could increase the profound strength of its practitioner to seeming legendary heights. The only bad part about this martial skill was that it could only be practiced by eunuchs.
Tang Bufan began to open the golden scroll with trembling fingers and the first line that was inside the scroll was: In order to practice the Sunflower Sacred Skill, the practitioner must first severe his manhood, severe the seven passions and the six lusts, only can he gains mastery over his opponents.
He was suddenly smiling as he thought, “Isn’t this perfect? I happen to be a eunuch now.” With this sacred skill, he would soon be a fifth realm golden celestial!
“Huan, you are so kind to me! I absolutely love you!” Tang Bufan was now all smiles as he unfolded the scroll further to read.
“I love you too…Bufan…”
All of a sudden Qiuxiang Huan had pushed Tang Bufan down the steep mountains to the desolate mists below, “Bufan, you can practice the Sunflower Sacred Skill below. All the best to your future endeavors. May we never meet again. Consider this my parting gift to you.”
Tang Bufan was so stunned by the sudden push that he never got the chance to react. The only reaction that he could manage was his loud screams as he disappeared into the desolate mists.
Qiuxiang Huan was smiling again, “Bufan, our short relationship is but a terrible mistake on my part. I was so lost back then. It won’t be too good if my future groom learns about us, don’t you think so? If you truly love me then you must accept your fate. Hopefully you will be able to master the Sunflower Sacred Skill and get back your manhood soon enough.”
She chuckled, “Ops, look at me. I’ve forgotten something very important. Even if you do master the Sunflower Sacred Skill, your manhood will never be able to regain even if you can be a golden celestial. It is because…you’ve chosen to severe your seven passions and six lusts!”
“What a vicious woman!”
Qiuxiang Huan was startled and she had quickly turned around. She was a fifth realm golden celestial. How was it possible for anyone to surprise her?”
An extremely beautiful maiden was looking at her with a cold smile. She was pale looking and her robes were a little tattered and it seemed that she had just been into a fierce fight.
“Who are you?” Qiuxiang Huan was alarmed as she lifted her golden sword.
The extremely beautiful maiden said unhurriedly, “Did you just push your lover down the mountain?”
Qiuxiang Huan repeated coldly, “Just who are you? You don’t believe that I will shred you to pieces and throw you down the mountain too?”
The extremely beautiful maiden said, “If you are able to do so, you can simply try. But I’m afraid that you will be very disappointed later because you will be the one that will be thrown down the mountain.”
Qiuxiang Huan smiled coldly, “What bold words! Do you know who I am? I am Qiuxiang Huan, the young mistress of the Clear Sky Pavilion and this mountain peak belongs to me. Who I want to kill is my business. As for you, you are an intruder in the forbidden ground of my clan. Therefore I have every right to take away your life…”
All of a sudden the golden sword that was in her hand was taken away by the extremely beautiful maiden who proceeded to break her golden sword into two pieces, “You mean with this piece of broken sword, you want to take away life?”
“Or do you mean…” the extremely beautiful maiden added with a smile. “That you are a fifth realm golden celestial and you can actually take away my life?”
Qiuxiang Huan gasped softly, “How did you know?”
It was her personal secret that she had purposely suppressed her cultivation level to make it appear as though she was a fourth realm expert. It was all due to a secret mystical divine pill that was only produced by the Clear Sky Pavilion and was only known to the leadership of the Clear Sky Pavilion.
The extremely beautiful maiden smiled, “That is because your cultivation level is too low and I can easily read yours.”
Qiuxiang Huan was startled. No one would ever say to a fifth realm golden celestial that their cultivation level was too low. Moreover this extremely beautiful maiden did not have any golden eyes yet she was claiming that her cultivation level was higher than her? It was too ridiculous!
But she managed to say calmly, “So what do you want?”
The extremely beautiful maiden flashed her eyes and it turned a desolate purple, “Qiuxiang Huan! I am the Desolate Sacred Maiden Yue Lingxi, Desolate Lord of the Citadel of Chaos Mysteries. I like your ruthlessness and you have a count of three to accept the offer to be my disciple!”
Qiuxiang Huan was startled, “What…Desolate Lord? I don’t even know what it is. Did you come from the other celestial fraternities?”
“Wait!” Qiuxiang Huan gasped, “I…I accept…”
“Good!” Yue Lingxi smiled. “Then kowtow three times before me to pay homage to your new mistress.”
Although Qiuxiang Huan did not know who she really was but she knew that this Yue Lingxi was an extreme character. It was because she could snap her precious golden sword with her profound strength in such an effortless manner. This was something that she was not able to do even though she had the strength of a fifth realm expert.
Therefore she began to kowtow three times as she humbly said, “My respects to mistress.”
Yue Lingxi smiled coldly, “Good. From today onward, you will be my first disciple in the Celestial Realm. From today onward, you will be a desolate cultivator of my Citadel of Chaos Mysteries and I will be imparting to you my immortal practices.”
“Immortal…practices?” Qiuxiang Huan blinked her eyes with a perplexed look.
“Of course it will be an immortal practice. The celestial practices that you are cultivating are too lowly for desolate cultivators like us.” Yue Lingxi said coolly.
Qiuxiang Huan was thinking with a soft sigh, “I’ve thought that she is a respectable mistress but she turns out to be a derange mistress…”
Yue Lingxi displayed a scroll and let it floated slowly in front of Qiuxiang Huan, “This is our citadel most powerful immortal art, the Gathering Windforces of the Demonic Wolf Sword. There are a total of nine levels to it. However, this scroll only contains the first three levels. Whether you can even gasp the first level will need to depend on your own enlightenment.”
Qiuxiang Huan smiled weakly, “Mistress, you are not guiding me?”
“It is not our way to guide. Isn’t it already clearly written in the scroll so why do you need me to guide you?” Yue Lingxi said coldly.
Qiuxiang Huan thought miserably, “Self-learning and guiding are two different matters. You expect me to learn blindly? What if I am afflicted with the deviation fire?” But she thought that it was wise for her to keep this to herself.
Yue Lingxi said, “Qiuxiang Huan, get me what you are currently consuming now.”
Qiuxiang Huan looked at her with a weak smile, “I wonder why mistress needs the Suppressing Mystic Profound Divine Pill for?”
“Naturally it is to suppress my high level cultivation from my enemies. It is too noticeable.”
Qiuxiang smiled weakly and her heart was shaking with disbelief, “She is a high level cultivator? Don’t ever let me found out what your true cultivation level is…” But she could not resist asking with a smile, “Since mistress you’ve already known what my cultivation level is, may I know yours?”
Yue Lingxi nodded lightly, “Eighth Immortal Positioning!”
She was thinking, “I’ve better don’t tell my new disciple that I have lost half of my desolate strength…”
Qiuxiang Huan was also thinking, “I have never heard of this cultivation ranking before. She must be from the other celestial fraternities…she is probably from the Desolate Celestial Fraternity since this place is the nearest to our Nine Celestial Fraternity…”
Other than the Nine Celestial Fraternity, there were several other celestial fraternities in the Celestial Realm like the Desolate Celestial Fraternity, Drifting Cloud Divine Sea and a dozen others.
“And one more thing,” Yue Lingxi added. “I want you to help me to keep tabs on this celestial practitioner by the name of Lu Qingyun. He is very important to me!”
Qiuxiang Huan was startled when she had heard Lu Qingyun’s name and she was thinking, “Did she just say that he is very important to her? What is their relationship?”
Yue Lingxi said after a short ponder, “He is currently at the Heavens Ridge Villa and is the senior brother there. He should be easy to keep tab upon. However there is this old man, he is a little hunchback. I want you to help me to keep track on him too. He is a formidable cultivator and you should be wary of him as well. He is an enemy of our Citadel of Chaos Mysteries. If possible, I want him dead.”
“What is this old man name?” Qiuxiang Huan asked.
“The Three-Destinies Old Man.” Yue Lingxi replied coolly.
Qiuxiang Huan replied, “I will take note of it.”
“Another thing…” Yue Lingxi said.
Qiuxiang Huan was cursing in her heart. This new mistress seemed to have an endless number of requests…
But she faked a smile to say, “Yes mistress. I am all ears.”
“We must only have the best disciples for our Citadel of Chaos Mysteries. Along the way, I have heard that there is this Golden Mask Devil Goddess who is quite formidable. Find her and bring her to me. I want to make her my disciple. She is qualified.”
Qiuxiang Huan was startled. The Golden Mask Devil Goddess was said to be a peaked seventh realm expert and she was the dark mistress of the three dark divine realms. How could she possibly recruit such an influential figure without getting killed first? This Yue Lingxi was totally insane…
“Maybe she was trying to show off to me that she was not afraid of the Devil Goddess and was trying to impress me. She must really think that I am a naïve maiden…”
“And another thing…” Yue Lingxi said with a smile. “Find me a quiet place for my meditation. Your mistress had just fought with an enemy of mine and I need to recuperate my strength. Get me some divine pills that can aid me to recover my profound strength. Spare no expenses for that.”
Qiuxiang Huan was thinking, “I hope the requests can end here. She is trying to drain the Clear Sky Pavilion of its resources. I think I’ve better get rid of her…”
“Oh by the way, your dress is so much prettier than mine. Strip and give me yours.” Yue Lingxi said nonchalantly.
“What?!” Qiuxiang Huan was startled. Her mistress was asking her to strip so that she could have her dress?! This was getting more and more ridiculous!
With a soft sigh Qiuxiang Huan did as she was told and had surrendered her dress to Yue Lingxi.
“You can have my old dress. Consider this my desolate grace to you. This dress of mine has a name and is called the Sky Heaven Lithe. It is an immortal artefact of the sixth rank so it is impervious to most damages and is capable of self-regenerating. I bet that you have never seen anything like this before, am I right?” Yue Lingxi said nonchalantly.
She was sighing in her heart, “I must be too gracious to this new disciple. But since she is my first disciple here and is willing to help me with so many tasks, I ought to be a little gracious and good to her.”
Qiuxiang Huan was actually cursing her in her heart, “Who wants your tattered dress!” But she pretended to accept it with a delightful smile. Playacting was one of her main strengths so it was not hard to fake a grateful expression.
“And one last thing more.” Yue Lingxi said.
Qiuxiang Huan nearly spurt blood when she heard that Yue Lingxi continued to make her requests. She said bitterly in her heart, “Why did she keep saying one last thing when it is never the last…”
“I have heard that there is an upcoming celestial clans’ competition, am I right? I’m going to take part.” Yue Lingxi said.
“Mistress, you are going to take part?” Qiuxiang Huan stared at her blankly. “It is only for those that are below the fifth realm level. Are you?”
Yue Lingxi looked at her with a smile, “If you can disguise your cultivation strength with pills, so can I. We are going to win big and there will be no one to stop us.”
