Chapter 175: Qiuxiang Huan’s Wedding
The Flying Armament Sect;
Today was the grand wedding of Young Master Ling Chong of the Flying Armament Sect and Qiuxiang Huan the Young Mistress of the Clear Sky Pavilion.
This was not an engagement ceremony as originally planned but had become a grand wedding between two of the most prominent young celestials in New Empyrean City.
The numbers of celestial dignities were in the thousands and today the Flying Armament Sect was bustling.
All the grand elders of the Heavens Ridge Villa were all presented, including Lu Qingyun, Yin Shisi and Leng Qiuyue.
When Qiuxiang Huan had made her appearance, almost all the celestials were startled that she was actually a golden celestial and that her golden eyes were beaming beautifully.
Many were gasping, “Qiuxiang Huan is actually a golden celestial?”
“When did she attain as a fifth realm expert?”
“This is most astonishing…”
“Young Master Ling Chong is only a fourth realm cultivator while his consort is a fifth realm cultivator…”
“I envy Ling Chong…”
“I look down on him…”
“Qiuxiang Huan is so beautiful…”
“Alas. One of the top beauties and most elegant maiden is going to get marry today…”
Qiuxiang Huan was smiling beautiful and she was accompanied by Ling Chong, Ling Xiu, Shangguan Furong and Qiuxiang Hanyu.
When they saw Lu Qingyun, they moved hastily to greet him.
Lu Qingyun was with Lie Xingyuan and Leng Qiuyue when they saw Qiuxiang Huan walking hastily to them.
As Lie Xingyuan had not fully recovered from her injuries, Lu Qingyun had accompanied her and did not mingle with the other celestials. For some unknown reason, Lu Qingyun thought that the other celestials were looking at him with a disdainful look even though he thought that he had shook off his good-for-nothing cultivator image.
As for Leng Qiuyue, she had always been a lone figure and did not like to mix with anyone. Therefore she was sticking with Lu Qingyun and Lie Xingyuan.
Qiuxiang Huan smiled warmly as she saw Lu Qingyun, Lie Xingyuan and Leng Qiuyue before she greeted, “Brother Qingyun, Maiden Qiuyue. How are you?”
“Brother Qingyun?” Lu Qingyun muttered.
“Since you are the brother of my man, naturally you are also my brother now.” Qiuxiang Huan smiled. “From now onward, we are one family now.”
Lu Qingyun smiled awkwardly, “Yes, yes…”
Ling Chong greeted Lu Qingyun excitingly, “Brother Qingyun!”
Ling Xiu smiled shyly, “Brother Qingyun…”
“Big Brother Qingyun!” Qiuxiang Hanyu chuckled delightfully.
Lu Qingyun and Leng Qiuyue quickly greeted everyone before Lu Qingyun hastily said, “My master won’t be able to attend the wedding today as she has something on with Fragrance Herald Shen. However, she has a gift for the two of you and she specially asks me to hand it over personally.”
Ling Chong laughed, “I wonder what it is?”
Lu Qingyun smiled, “I actually have no idea at all.”
Qiuxiang Huan smiled as she looked adorably at Ling Chong, “Why don’t we open it up and we’ll know?”
After the Divine Fragrance tournament had ended, Qiuxiang Huan had confessed to Ling Chong everything what had expected recently and told him that she did not deserve him. However Ling Chong had blamed it upon himself instead.
In the end, they had found a soul mate in each other and had changed the engagement to a wedding ceremony instead.
In their eyes, they had only each other now.
As Qiuxiang Huan opened the box, she was gasping softly.
Even Ling Chong was dumbfounded. It was because contained inside the small box were two Divine Profound Pills!
Even Shangguan Furong, Yin Shisi, Qiuxiang Hanyu, Lie Xingyuan and Leng Qiuyue were all equally astonished.
Qiuxiang Huan quickly closed the box and was gasping, “This is too precious. Sect Leader Qin is too generous…”
Ling Chong was trembling and he could not believe his eyes. He had been wondering for the past few days how he was going to catch up in his cultivation with Qiuxiang Huan now that he knew that she was a golden celestial.
Lu Qingyun smiled, “My master has always been generous. She says you will be pleased with it.” From the fresh sniff of these Divine Profound Pills, Lu Qingyun knew that Qin Keqin must have secretly made these pills herself.
He secretly sighed, “She has probably failed a dozen of the Divine Profound Pills before succeeding on these two…”
Qiuxiang Huan smiled as she looked at Leng Qiuyue and Lu Qingyun, “So when are the two of you going to follow our footsteps?”
Lu Qingyun was suddenly startled by her question and he was stammering, “Erm, that isn’t going to happen…”
Even Leng Qiuyue was flushing as she said quickly, “I’m going to the Heavenly Fragrance Villa soon. We won’t meet again…”
But she was interrupted by Qiuxiang Huan with a cheeky smile, “After you have become a golden celestial, you can always quit the Heavenly Fragrance Villa to look for Brother Qingyun.”
Leng Qiuyue was secretly flushing. This was actually her secret plan and no one was supposed to know that she had this intention. It would be a terrible thing if this was leak out and the Heavenly Fragrance Villa would have second thoughts about wasting their celestial resources on her.
Shangguan Furong laughed softly, “You will really let him go? After you have kissed him in front of everyone that day?”
Leng Qiuyue: …
Even Yin Shisi was saying coolly, “If I were you, I will not let him go.”
Leng Qiuyue, Lu Qingyun: …
Lu Qingyun quickly cut in with an awkward laugh, “Haha. It isn’t what you think that day is. To be honest, I am actually a good-for-nothing playboy. It is better that the decent maidens keep their distance from me.”
Yin Shisi laughed, “Isn’t it better this way? To be honest, I like honest playboy than a dishonest playboy.”
Lu Qingyun almost fainted on the spot when he had heard her.
Even Lie Xingyuan was startled by the boldness of her ‘junior sister’. She quickly said, “Let’s don’t tease them anymore. We should tease the groom and the bride today instead.”
Ling Chong and Qiuxiang Huan were laughing jovially as they averted their eyes.
Everyone was secretly looking at their group curiously.
It was rumored that they were all bitter rivals at one time but now they were all laughing and chatting together?
And what exactly happened to Qiuxiang Huan after Shen Yufeng had called her for a personal talk?
And now Qiuxiang Huan was now a golden celestial?
It was too perplexing to many of the guests!
Fairy Ling Xiu looked up to Lu Qingyun as she said quietly, “Brother Qingyun, I’m so sorry. I am afraid that I can’t go to the Moon Demon Forest with you.” And her eyes had turned red when she had said that.
Lu Qingyun nodded. It was not unexpected. After all, she was the young mistress of the Flying Armament Sect and not just an ordinary core protégé.
Ling Chong explained, “My sister had actually pleaded with my father to let her go but my father strongly refused to. I hope that Brother Qingyun will not fault my sister for upholding her promise.”
Lu Qingyun smiled, “Of course I won’t. In fact, I feel better that Sister Ling Xiu is in safe hands.”
He turned to look at Ling Xiu, “This expedition trip to the Moon Demon Forest may be dangerous. So I really hope that you can stay put here. In fact today, I am trying to persuade you not to go.”
Ling Xiu lowered her melancholy glances, “Then I hope that Brother Qingyun you will return safe and sound, alright? I will wait for you. If you don’t return then I will be your widow forever.”
Lu Qingyun: …
Ling Chong, Qiuxiang Huan, Qiuxiang Hanyu, Shangguan Furong, Yin Shisi, Leng Qiuyue, Leng Qiuyue and Leng Xingyuan were all shocked that Ling Xiu would actually make a pledge to remain a widow for Lu Qingyun’s sake.
Fairy Ling Xi actually liked Lu Qingyun too? These were the thoughts that had flashed in their mind.
Lu Qingyun did not know what to say to her so he said whatever had come to his mind, “I will surely be back. So do not worry. Even if I don’t, there will always be a better man than me.”
“There are no others that are better than you.” Ling Xiu looked at him shyly before she excused herself hastily.
Lu Qingyun: …
At the Heavens Ridge Villa, Qin Keqin was conversing in secret via the transmission array with Feng Minyue.
“Did you say that Xuan Danfeng has been missing for a few days now? She has been kidnapped or what?” Qin Keqin asked curiously.
Feng Minyue shook her head, “She is alright. She is in the city. I saw her with an old man and they were chatting happily.”
Qin Keqin frowned softly, “I didn’t know that she has this type of fetish. Just ignore her. When she is done playing, she will come back.”
Feng Minyue said quietly, “I’m a little worried about her. She is behaving quite strangely lately.”
“She is always strange.” Qin Keqin chuckled. “Is there anything else?”
Feng Minyue said, “This one is more serious and it comes from the Southern Valiant Arms Sect. They are on a verge of uniting the Northern Valiant Arms Sect. Once the unification is completed, the Valiant Arms Divine Realm may turn its attention upon us.”
Qin Keqin nodded slowly, “This new Grandmaster of the Southern Valiant Arms Sect seems extremely ambitious. It is not a secret that he aims to unite the nine patriarch clans into an alliance to fight against the three dark divine realms.”
“His name is Saint Gao Tianshou. It is rumored that he has a lucky occurrence in the Endless Abyssal Sea and he had attained the sacred saint level as a result. Since then, he had been gathering the fighters of the Nine Celestial Fraternity into his banner. And now, it seems that he is about to unite the Valiant Arms Divine Realm once more into a complete realm.” Feng Minyue said.
“He is really a charismatic leader…” Qin Keqin said quietly.
“Shall we make preparations to go back?” Feng Minyue asked.
Qin Keqin hesitated for a while before she said quietly, “Let me think about it for a while first.”
