Chapter 31: Having Pigs in the Team

“Wait!” Yuan Ji had suddenly halted Elder Sui.

“What is it?” Elder Sui said.

“There is someone that I want to ask you about.” Yuan Ji said. “Do you know Xia Jiajia’s background?”

“Who is she?” Elder Sui replied with a weak smile.

Yuan Ji: …

“Never mind that. Do you know Xia Jiaqing’s background?”

Elder Sui asked curiously, “You’re asking me about your previous Palace Mistress?”

Yuan Ji nodded awkwardly.

Elder Sui began to smile awkwardly, “You are not testing me, am I right?”

Yuan Ji laughed weakly, “Do I look like I’m testing you?”

Elder Sui laughed weakly, “This information is free for you. Palace Mistress Xia Jiaqing established the Emperor Hall Sect in the Five Heavens Peaks a hundred years ago and soon become one of the four great beauties of the fraternity due to her astonishing allure…”

Yuan Ji interrupted, “What is her background before she becomes Palace Mistress?”

Elder Sui replied awkwardly, “There is no information on that.”

Yuan Ji: ???


Elder Sui smiled awkwardly, “Nothing at all. We’ve tried to check her background on many occasions but we can’t find a single thing. She never stepped out of the Five Heavens Peak nor did she have any visitors for the past one hundred years. Even our best informants can tell us nothing. All we know is that she is peaked sixth realm golden supremacy when she had founded the Emperor Hall Sect.”

Then he added, “We think that Xia Jiaqing isn’t her real name.”

Yuan Ji: …

Supremacy Guo Taiming was trying to chat with the disinterested Fairy Ye Chengxi and Shangguan Yan when Yuan Ji had entered the small hall.

“I was only trying to see if the two of you needs any help. I didn’t exactly come to create trouble…” Guo Taiming was saying panicky. “Alas, let me tell you a secret…”

Yuan Ji interrupted with an icy hum, “You can eat the wrong food but you can’t say the wrong words.”

Guo Taiming was suddenly smiling weakly when he saw Yuan Ji. “Haha, I didn’t say anything.”

Shangguan Yan: ???

Fairy Ye Chengxi returned a perplexed look at them as she thought, “He is my old master’s best friend. So he has also recognized him? Is this the secret?”

Yuan Ji smiled to Shangguan Yan and Fairy Ye Chengxi, “I have a small matter to talk with Supremacy Guo Taiming first. I catch up with the two of you later.”

“Alright. Yan’Er takes my leave first.” Shangguan Yan replied. She was only too glad to leave. This Guo Tianming was a little too irritating to her but because he was her old master’s friend and was once a regular visitor to the Orthodox Sword Sect, she was forced to entertain him while waiting for Yuan Ji to return from his talk with Elder Sui.

Fairy Ye Chengxi smiled, “Chengxi will take my leave too.” Like Shangguan Yan, she was only too glad to leave now.

As they walked off, Guo Taiming was still looking at their back view and was drooling.

“Have you seen enough already?” Yuan Ji was frowning unhappily.

Guo Tianming was laughing, “Beautiful, beautiful. Never enough. I still don’t understand until today how you manage to pick two such beautiful maidens to be your personal protégés and now you have even taken them as your consorts? I am really so impressed by you.”

Yuan Ji growled, “So you must be wishing that I will be dead in six months then? So that you can take my consorts?”

Guo Tianming laughed jovially, “Of course, brother.”

“Unfortunately I won’t die so easily. So dream on.” Yuan Ji said coldly.

Guo Tianming laughed, “You will never know what will happen in six months.”

Yuan Ji began to say gravely, “You must never tell them my real identity. I don’t want them to know and I wish that they will have a beautiful memory instead.”

Guo Tianming replied solemnly, “Big Brother, you won’t die. Surely we can think of a way together? So what are your plans now?”

Then he added, “Do you know how glad I’m to see you again? You’ve suddenly gone missing and I don’t know what has happened to you…”

Yuan Ji was frowning, “How am I going to answer you if you keep asking so many questions?”

Guo Tianming laughed jovially, “I’m just so excited to see you again.”

“Let me ask you something first and I want you to answer me very honestly.” Yuan Ji said with a big frown on his face.

“I’m always honest with my big brother.” Guo Tianming laughed.

“My poem. How did it get leak out?” Yuan Ji said solemnly.

“What poem? Big Brother has so many great poems. Haha.”

Yuan Ji gave him an annoyed look before he recited slowly, “The fluttering snow as white as the Goddess Maiden Qianxue and the spirit songs as vivid as the Goddess Maiden Feiyue. To have the two beautiful goddesses to dance with the strokes of my beautiful beard is as heavenly as the sight of the immortal fairies…”

Guo Tianming laughed as he recited jovially the second half of the poem, “The lovely laughter of the two Goddess Maidens transcends the seven lofty peaks of the realm and the hundred flowers. Their beautiful songs stir my passions to no ends.”

“I really like this poem of yours so much.” Guo Tianming stroked his beard as he chuckled jovially.

Yuan Ji was now looking at him fiercely, “How on earth did this poem get leak out when only the two of us knows about this poem?”

Guo Tianming chuckled, “Of course you have me to give credit for it! Can you imagine the praises of your name when I recite it in front of the crowd? Overnight, everyone is reciting this poem. Until today, this poem is still unbeatable and in the hearts of everyone.”

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

“But big brother, times have changed now. You ought to make a new poem for the four great beauties of the Desolate Celestial Fraternity. Do you know that your consort Fairy Ye Chengxi is one of the four great beauties now? She is now known as the Goddess Fairy Ye Chengxi. Hahaha…”

All of a sudden Yuan Ji gave him a tremendous kick that sent him flying backward. “Hahaha my foot!”

Guo Tianming was startled, “Big brother, why did you kick me for?”

Yuan Ji raised his voice to rebuke him, “Not only do I want to kick you again, I want to kill you as well! Why did I have to have a pig on my side?! How many times must I tell you that this poem is only for our own pleasures only?”

Guo Tianming protested, “But big brother, surely you’re not thinking of letting this masterpiece be forgotten in the river of time? This is a too good masterpiece to be forgotten and should be allowed to be recited by everyone.”

Yuan Ji smiled weakly, “Do you know that because of what you’ve done, I was forced to be on the run by Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue?”

Guo Tianming was startled, “No wonder you have suddenly disappeared. No wonder there are a bounty for you by them.”

Yuan Ji said coldly, “So you even know about the bounty on my head and you didn’t even connect the dots?”

Guo Tianming began to stroke his beard, “Hm, come to think of that, there seems to be a connection.”

Yuan Ji: …

“I can’t believe with your brains, you can be a sect leader of the White Blossom Peak!”

“My old master made me a sect leader because I am more honest than my same seniority protégé brothers and not because I’m smarter than them.” Guo Tianming was smiling before adding. “In the end, my old master is proven right. Now I am the highest level celestial in my sect. Haha.”

Yuan Ji said coldly, “Why don’t you say it is your stupidity that causes all of them to perish before you?”

Guo Tianming stroked his beard, “Come to think of that, you may say so as well.”

Yuan Ji: …

“Why don’t you die now?”

“I’m still too young to die yet.” Guo Tianming stroked his beard to ponder. “Alas but big brother will soon die before me.”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “Thank you for reminding me about this.”

“But really. I really don’t understand why you want to do such a foolish thing as to steal from the Hundred Flower Divine Palace? You’re courting your own death.” Guo Tianming sighed heavily.

“You really think that I will steal from the Hundred Flower Divine Palace?” Yuan Ji smiled bitterly.

Guo Tianming gasped, “Big brother, you mean you are being setup by someone?”

Yuan Ji felt like banging his head on the wall as he replied bitterly, “What takes you so long to figure this out?”

Guo Tianming stammered, “Who will do such a wicked thing to you?”

Yuan Ji smiled weakly, “Who do you think my position comes from?”

Guo Tianming stroked his beard, “Hm…let me think hard for a little while…”

“Are you sure that you’re even thinking hard?”

“I’m trying. Hold on…I can’t figure out who…it is said that behind every successful cultivator, there is a supportive maiden behind his back…you mean it is your Chengxi?”

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji cursed him loudly, “Why don’t you die now? I feel that your life is worthless up to this point.”

“Big brother, I never know you will actually mouth profanities. Aren’t you a gentleman of the sword?”

“I’ve now decided to be a devil of the sword, thanks to you.”

Yuan Ji was now sighing to himself, “I need to find Jiajia and asks her why. My only clues to her whereabouts are Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue now…”

He vowed silently, “What had exactly happened one hundred years ago?”

He could still vividly remember their mocking laughter a hundred years ago when they had laughed at the same time. “Ji Yuan will be a dead man soon.”

Guo Tianming had suddenly interrupted his thoughts, “Big brother, what are you thinking of now? Why don’t you share with me? Maybe I can help you. After all, two brains are better than one.”

Yuan Ji replied coldly, “No thanks. I’m afraid that you may end up brain dead if you were to help me. Moreover I don’t need a pig brain to help me.”

Guo Tianming: …

“This hurts my feeling, you know…”

“I can make it hurt even more if you want to…and thank you for screwing me up with my own poem…”

“You’re welcome…”

“Go die now and please get lost from my Emperor Hall Sect…”

“Big brother, you haven’t told me about your experiences yet and I haven’t chatted enough with the two sisters-in-law yet…”

Yuan Ji: …

“I feel like slaughtering you with my divine sword right now if you still insist on staying.”
