Chapter 238: The Golden Goddess
The death of the Devil Goddess had spread like wildfire throughout the Nine Celestial Fraternity.
Six months after the death of the Devil Goddess in New Empyrean City;
Two young couple was seen walking in the rain. They were sharing the same umbrella together as they walked into the Heavenly Lotus Teahouse.
The young man was really handsome and the young maiden was like a beautiful goddess.
As they entered the Heavenly Lotus Teahouse, all the stewards continued on their tasks as though they were invisible and no one pays them any attention.
They continued their way to the top floor of the teahouse and eventually they had come to a large heavy door.
The young man carefully put the umbrella aside before pushing the heavy door with his two hands.
Inside the room were many familiar faces that had known them; they were Xuan Danfeng, Feng Mingyue, Yue Lingxi, Tang Xuefeng and Qian Jingjing
The couple was actually Lu Qingyun and Fan Yuqing.
“What takes you so long to arrive?” Feng Minyue started to question them.
“They are romancing in the rain, what else?” Xuan Danfeng chuckled.
Lu Qingyun smiled, “It is not what you think.”
“Oh really?” Tang Xuefeng smiled at them.
Fan Yuqing laughed softly, “We are just discussing our next course of action. It isn’t what you think it is.”
“We don’t believe.” There were many sounds of disbelief.
“They must have opened a room somewhere else.”
Lu Qingyun: …
Fan Yuqing slammed her hand on the table and chuckled softly. “Listen up! I am asking all of you here for an important mission.”
“Which is?” Feng Minyue was shaking her head.
Fan Yuqing smiled coolly, “From today onward, I’m the Golden Goddess and you’re all my gang.”
Xuan Danfeng muttered, “Did we say anything about joining you?”
Fan Yuqing ignored her as she continued, “We’re going to form the most powerful expedition group to conquer all the cultivation trials in the Nine Celestial Fraternity. After we have become the number one expedition group in the Nine Celestial Fraternity, we will go to the Desolate Celestial Fraternity and conquer the trials there with our awesomeness.”
She extended her hands to everyone and said, “We will gather all the profound treasures and rare cultivation resources. This will be the most fun thing ever to happen in the entire history of the Celestial Realm.”
Then she was giggling, “For our first mission, it will be the Clarity Valley of Melody.”
When she had said that, everyone was growling softly.
It was because they knew that she was still searching for the missing Sixth Rank Life-Giver Profound Pill that she had accidentally thrown away.
Lu Qingyun grinned, “That’s right. That will be our first mission.”
Qian Jingjing laughed shyly, “Do we even have a name for our adventuring group yet?”
Tang Xuefeng chuckled, “No, I don’t think so.”
Six months ago;
When Lu Qingyun and Fan Yuqing had both jumped down to the desolate mists below, Lu Qingyun had caught hold of Fan Yuqing.
Fan Yuqing was startled that Lu Qingyun was able to display his profound aura to his peak under the desolate mists and was not affected by the desolate forces.
Therefore their fast ascend had become a slow levitation downward.
Lu Qingyun sighed softly, “I am also a desolate cultivator. The desolate mists here do not impair me…”
All of a sudden Tang Xuefeng and Qian Jingjing were suddenly seen above them.
Lu Qingyun was startled as he quickly caught hold of Tang Xuefeng and Qian Jingjing as well.
It took him all of his profound strength to hold onto the three maidens as they dropped into the bottomless abyss.
“Brother Qingyun, you are still alive?” Tang Xuefeng and Qian Jingjing were startled and were glad at the same time.
All of a sudden Tang Xuefeng was gasping as she saw Fan Yuqing who had lost her golden mask during the jump. “Great Saintess Fan…Great Benefactor, you are…the Devil Goddess?!”
Even Qian Jingjing was stunned, “Sect Leader Qin is the Devil Goddess?”
Lu Qingyun sighed heavily as he interrupted them, “Why did you all jump down for?”
He was secretly touched by them and sighed softly.
Tang Xuefeng averted her eyes shyly, “If you are no longer alive, we don’t want to live anymore.”
Qian Jingjing nodded, “That’s right. That why we jump after you. But why did you want to jump off the cliff? Surely we can think of another way to end this conflict?”
Lu Qingyun smiled bitterly, “Actually we are just trying to retrieve the box that was thrown away earlier.”
Tang Xuefeng, Qian Jingjing: …
Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “That is right. And now we have two more searchers.”
But she was actually thinking, “These two maidens are willing to die for my Yun’Er…is it a good thing?”
Tang Xuefeng was stunned, “I don’t believe it…”
“So do I…” Qian Jingjing was equally stunned.
Lu Qingyun said to them, “Be careful. We are landing very soon. I’m afraid that with the three of you in my arms now, this fall is going to be a hard fall.”
Fan Yuqing smiled, “Don’t worry. I will use all my profound strength to soften our impact. Yun’Er, you focused on your profound aura. Leave the rest to me. Don’t let go of us!”
Lu Qingyun laughed softly, “From now onward, I’ll never let go of any of you.”
“Crashing soon!” Qian Jingjing, Tang Xuefeng and Fan Yuqing were all screaming at the same time.
Lu Qingyun shouted loudly, “Yan’Er, Xingxin…I need your profound strength!”
Yan’Er and Xinghe had hovered out of Lu Qingyun’s soul sea when they had heard him…
Yan’Er laughed excitingly as she danced around Fan Yuqing, “Big Sister Keqin, your Yan’Er misses you so much…”
Fan Yuqing managed a weak smile, “Yan’Er, you don’t mind transforming into a big golden roc for the time being? I can’t talk at this moment…”
Xingxin was hovering around Lu Qingyun, “Master, I can’t absorb the desolate force fast enough to lend you strength…”
Lu Qingyun had turned pale as their fall descended quicker and quicker now; he was losing his profound strength very fast but he was also unwilling to let loose of the three maidens to save his own life.
Yan’Er hovered around Fan Yuqing, “Your Yan’Er can’t transform into a big golden roc now. Big Sister Keqin, you’ve forgotten that Yan’Er is now a spirit entity?”
Fan Yuqing muttered, “I didn’t forget but can’t you see that we are about to be flattened soon?”
Yan’Er chuckled, “Although your Yan’Er can’t transform into a big golden roc but I can transform into a dozen flying swords to cushion your descend slowly.”
Lu Qingyun and Fan Yuqing were both shouting at her at the same time, “Yan’Er, why didn’t you say so earlier?!”
Yan’Er chuckled, “Because my master never asks me to do so.”
Lu Qingyun: ….
Lu Qingyun: ….
Lu Qingyun: ….
All of a sudden there was a glowing blue light as Yue Lingxi had flashed past them with a soft chuckle, “Do you need help from this immortal cultivator? I can even levitate you back to the top as well.”
Fan Yuqing chuckled, “Not yet. We still need to find that stupid box!”
