Chapter 140: We Are Sisters
When Lie Xingyuan opened her eyes, Qin Keqin was gently holding onto her hands and she was muttering, “Xingyuan, you’re going to be alright. Be strong…”
Immediately Lie Xingyuan had understood what had happened. Qin Keqin was transferring her precious profound energies into her, helping to revive and clearing her energy meridians.
She muttered weakly, “Sister Keqin, why are you here?”
Then she gave a startled cry, “Is senior brother…alright?”
Qin Keqin smiled gently, “Don’t worry. He is fine.”
Lie Xingyuan began to smile weakly, “That is good…I wonder who that old man is…”
Then she was gasping, “Sister Keqin, I am awakened now. You can stop now. Don’t waste your profound energies on me…”
“Not at all,” Qin Keqin smiled.
Lie Xingyuan averted her eyes, “Actually it is so good to have a kin…”
Qin Keqin looked quietly at her for a while before she smiled, “So you knew?”
“My master had told me…”
Qin Keqin smiled as she held Lie Xingyuan’s hands tightly, “Yes, you are my really my sister and I am also your real sister. I had only known recently too. Sorry, I didn’t tell you.”
Lie Xingyuan said weakly, “Do you know that the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing is my idol? My idol is actually my sister. I am so glad.”
Qin Keqin chuckled, “We have another sister.”
Lie Xingyuan was startled, “We have?”
Qin Keqin nodded as she heaved deeply as she looked up, “Her name is Yi Si. She is a great saintess before me. She is our oldest sister and she had now ascended to the Immortal Realm as an immortal cultivator. I didn’t see her for centuries and I’ve always wondered how she is doing. One day, we will meet her and she will be happy that she got a little sister.”
“Great Saintess…it seems that Xingyuan here is the most useless here…” Lie Xingyuan muttered softly.
“Don’t say that. You will definitely become a great saintess in the future. This is your destiny, just like it is my destiny to become a great saintess.” Qin Keqin smiled.
“My destiny?” Lie Xingyuan asked.
“That is right.”
“Sister Keqin, may I know who my parents are?” Lie Xingyuan suddenly asked.
Qin Keqin smiled. She knew that Lie Qing the Heavenly Temptress had not told her yet or else she would not ask this question. So she replied, “One day you will know.”
Lie Xingyuan looked deeply disappointed with the answer.
“Maybe you have already seen them but it is just that you did not know,” Qin Keqin slowly said.
Lie Xingyuan looked at her, afraid to ask further.
“I can only tell you this. Our parents are immortal cultivators in the Immortal Realm. In the Immortal Realm, it is a rare occurrence for births to happen and almost unheard of. Even if that happens, the child will not be an automatic immortal cultivator because there are no divine calamities to temper the cultivators in the Immortal Realm.”
Then Qin Keqin smiled gently, “Therefore we are sent to the Celestial Realm to temper our spirits and cultivation in order to prepare for our eventual ascension to the Immortal Realm. You and I are destined to become immortal cultivators.”
Lie Xingyuan was startled when she had heard her, “Is that…true?”
Qin Keqin chuckled, “Of course that is the truth. Why should I lie to you?”
Lie Xingyuan lowered her eyes before she said quietly, “Because you are also the Devil Goddess…”
“Or maybe I’m the daughter of the evil immortal cultivators?” Qin Keqin chuckled softly.
Lie Xingyuan coughed weakly before she smiled, “Or maybe I am the same as well. After all, we are two sisters.”
“Or three sisters if we include our Sister Yi Si here.” Qin Keqin returned a jovial laugh.
Lie Xingyuan smiled, “Our father must be a great immortal cultivator I think.”
Qin Keqin rolled her eyes, not saying anything. She merely said, “Maybe.”
“Sister, I have something to tell you…” Lie Xingyuan said weakly.
Qin Keqin smiled, “Why don’t you rest first? We have all the time in the world when you’ve recovered.”
“No, sis.” Lie Xingyuan pursed her lips. “I will be leaving here soon to be a core protégé of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa. I hope that you understand.”
Qin Keqin nodded slowly, “I had already heard from Shen Yufeng. She had told me of her intentions.”
“Does he knows?” Qin Keqin asked her. ‘He’ referred to Lu Qingyun.
Lie Xingyuan nodded slowly before she said weakly, “Will you blame Xingyuan for making this decision?”
Qin Keqin smiled gently, “Of course not. Please a good rest first. I will be back soon.”
Lie Xingyuan nodded weakly before she closed her eyes.
Qin Keqin trembled a little as she thought, “Xingyuan obviously likes Lu Qingyun but she has chosen to leave him…”
When she had exited Lie Xingyuan’s room, Lu Qingyun was pacing up and down in the hall.
When Lu Qingyun saw Qin Keqin, he immediately asked. “Is Xingyuan going to be alright?”
Qin Keqin returned a faint smile, “She will be alright. Don’t worry.”
Lu Qingyun muttered, “I really don’t know who that old man is. He calls himself the Three Destinies Old Man. I have never met anyone as formidable as him. I will surely seek him out…”
“No, you stay your hand.” Qin Keqin interrupted him gently. “Let me do it.”
Lu Qingyun smiled weakly, “This won’t do. That old man seems to have a feud with me.” He did not want her to know that the old man had known about their relationship and he was worried that she may lose her reputation.
Qin Keqin shook her head, “You won’t be able to find him but I can. Moreover I know who he is.”
“You know him?” Lu Qingyun was startled.
Then he thought, “That old man seems to fear Keqin somehow. I wonder why?”
Qin Keqin smiled gently, “Don’t worry. I won’t come to harm. Why don’t you take a good rest first? You didn’t sleep for an entire night now.”
Lu Qingyun sighed softly before he said, “Alright then…”
As Qin Keqin watched him left the hall, she thought. “I’ve better not let him know that Xingyuan is my real sister or he will feel bad about treating Xingyuan as a personal maid. Moreover Xingyuan enjoys being his personal attendant.”
After making sure that Lu Qingyun was sound asleep, Qin Keqin had quietly walked outside the abode.
She took a quick look around with her divine sense before she said quietly, “I know that you are hiding around. Why don’t you come out now?”
From the shadows, an old man had suddenly appeared. He was the Three Destinies Old Man but at this moment, he had changed to a youthful man with heavy muscles and was no longer a hunchback. “Yuqin…”
