Chapter 69: New Plans
Many days later;
Yuan Ji, Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue were now on their way to the Holy Maiden Peaks.
Along the way Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue were really pissed off with Yuan Ji and they really showed it by their cold attitude toward him.
Yuan Ji was not really bothered by their cold attitude but he was more amused that they were still willing to help him. It was because the information that they had dug for him was quite detailed.
At the same time he really did not believe that they could be blackmailed by him.
Hua Wuwu said to Yuan Ji, “This is what we have gathered from the nearby towns. The Celestial Orthodox Sect is holding their new sacred maiden ceremony in two months’ time. All the other six major righteous orthodox clans as well as dozens of influential celestial clans from the orthodox fraternity will be attending.”
Yuan Ji rubbed his chin as he said slowly, “Then this is indeed the best time for us to rescue Xue Qianxue. Who is going to be the next Sacred Maiden?”
Hua Baiyue replied him, “It is Zhao Songjin. She will be the next Sacred Maiden.”
When she had said out her name, there was a hint of displeasure in her eyes. Obviously, she did not like Zhao Songjin very much.
Yuan Ji sighed heavily, “Because of me, Xue Qianxue is now forced to give up her leadership position…”
Hua Baiyue interrupted him softly, “Are you sure that you want to rescue her? Although this may be the best timing but it is also the most dangerous timing. They may allow Xue Qianxue to come out of her imprisonment to make the handover speech but to rescue her in front of the thousands of cultivators is not going to be easy at all.”
Yuan Ji replied firmly, “I will rescue her. I can’t allow her to suffer in that place.”
Hua Wuwu said coldly, “Don’t say we didn’t warn you first. If you fail then you will die and if you die, we will slaughter everyone in the Five Heavens Peaks.”
Yuan Ji laughed softly, “If I die, you may die with me. If you have died with me, how do you slaughter everyone in the Five Heavens Peaks?”
Hua Wuwu was giggling all of a sudden, “Dream on! Did we say that we are helping you directly?”
Yuan Ji laughed, “You look much better if you are smiling, especially now.”
Hua Wuwu had suddenly become cold again, “Who is smiling? Who will bother to smile in front of you?”
“My sister is only laughing because of your foolish attempt to rescue Xue Qianxue.” Hua Baiyue hummed coldly.
Yuan Ji smiled before he said, “I need three invitations. One invitation is naturally for me and the other two invitation are for the two of you.”
“So now we are running errands for you?” Hua Wuwu frowned. She really could not believe that Yuan Ji could be so shameless as to assign errands to them.
Even Hua Baiyue was muttering, “Why don’t you find the invitations yourself?”
Yuan Ji replied nonchalantly, “I will be a little buzy for the next two months.”
Hua Wuwu, Hua Baiyue: …
Yuan Ji shrugged his shoulder lightly before he said quietly, “Thank you.”
Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue hummed coldly at him before they looked in the other way.
Yuan Ji sighed softly, “Actually you have lied about the Dual Cultivation, am I right? Because the two of you still have your chastity intact.”
All of a sudden Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue were flustered and it showed in their rosy cheeks.
He added, “Why did you lie to me for?”
Hua Wuwu laughed with a flushed look, “Who says we had lied to you? It is just that we never got a chance to practice dual cultivation with anyone yet.”
Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “That is the lamest thing that I have ever heard, you know?”
Hua Baiyue added with a flustered voice, “At least we are not as shameless as you. You stole our lingeries from us and even use it to threaten us into helping you. And you have even kicked us down the bed.”
Yuan Ji smiled awkwardly, “I’m sorry. Does your butt still hurt? At that time, I didn’t have any choice…”
Hua Baiyue frowned softly, “You’re asking if our butt hurts after so many days? You’re too badass.”
Yuan Ji laughed, “I know that the two of you are saintesses with a high level of attainment. Naturally your mental fortitude will be strong enough to take any setbacks. Therefore I can only ask if your butt hurts.”
Hua Baiyue: …
Hua Wuwu: …
All of a sudden Yuan Ji was staring at them intently, “The two of you seems to be aware of my plans, am I right? You’re finding an excuse to help me on the sly? Because the dual cultivation story seems to be too forced.”
Hua Wuwu said coldly, “Who is helping you on the sly? It is because you have blackmailed us…”
All of a sudden Yuan Ji had flashed their lingeries in front of them and said, “You can have your lingeries back now.”
Hua Wuwu, Hua Baiyue: …
Yuan Ji muttered bitterly, “It is because I don’t believe that you will betray the Hundred Flower Divine Palace. At the same time, I feel that you are trying to push me to go to the Celestial Orthodox Sect. I don’t know what your nefarious plans are. I don’t care what you will do to the Celestial Orthodox Sect or your other schemes. I only want to rescue Xue Qianxue. Do you get me? Therefore you don’t have to sacrifice your chastity or use your honey trap on me.”
He then added quietly, “There is still two months before the sacred maiden ceremony. I’m going to cultivate in the cave over there. Do you mind watching over me while I am cultivating?”
Without waiting for them to reply him, Yuan Ji had walked with a heavy heart to the cave.
Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue were exchanging quiet glances at each other and they were sighing softly.
Hua Wuwu sighed heavily to her sister, “He is a good man…”
Hua Baiyue nodded lightly, “Do you think that he suspects our mission?”
Hua Wuwu shook her lightly, “I don’t think so.”
“He seems to have a heavy heart nowadays.” Hua Baiyue said quietly.
Hua Wuwu was suddenly flustered as she lowered her voice, “Sister, what if we have lost our chastity that night? What will you do?”
Hua Baiyue had a flustered look and her ears had completely turned red hot, “I don’t know. I told you that this is a stupid plan. Even if we lose our chastity, my hook or by crook we have to get him in one piece to the duel place. That was what our Divine Palace Master had said to us. Do you think that our Divine Palace Master is serious about this? But luckily we didn’t lose anything…”
Hua Wuwu interrupted her hastily, “Shhh, not so loud. Do you want to get killed?”
Hua Baiyue was immediately looking at her surroundings nervously, “I’m just a little anxious. But at the very least it is now going according to plans…”
Hua Wuwu nodded, “Let’s hope so. He doesn’t seem to be the type that will quietly follow any plans. Remember a hundred years ago…”
Hua Baiyue nodded, “Let’s drop our cold pretense on him. We need him to be in his tip-top form soon.”
Hua Wuwu protested weakly, “You are the one that is showing him the cold attitude. Not me!”
Hua Baiyue chuckled awkwardly, “It is not me either. I am just following your lead. You are my older sister.”
Hua Wuwu frowned lightly, “I am just a little indignant that he didn’t take us. What is wrong with his eyes? He has eyes but he can’t see that he have two lovely saintesses in front of him. That is why I am unhappy.”
Hua Baiyue averted her eyes shyly, “Same here…”
Hua Wuwu said with an apprehensive look, “Sister, we ought to be more careful from now onward. We mustn’t allow our personal feelings to ruin our mission. We can’t afford to fail our mission.”
Hua Baiyue nodded quietly, “We can’t question the Divine Palace Master. Don’t forget that Yuan Ji has a feud with our Hundred Flower Divine Palace. Even if we want to help him, we are powerless to do so.”
Hua Wuwu began to sigh heavily…
