Chapter 80: Ling Feiyue vs. Xue Qianxue (2)
Xue Qianxue repeated coldly as her golden eyes flashed across the great hall, “I don’t wish to say again. Anyone that wants to fight Ling Feiyue has to fight with me first!”
Now that Xue Qianxue had warned everyone not to interfere in her duel, the cultivators from the seven major orthodox clans began to hesitate.
When they saw that the thirty odd unorthodox golden celestials on Ling Feiyue were also pointing their swords at them, everyone decided to adopt a wait and see approach first.
After all, no one would like to have a taste of Xue Qianxue’s ninth rank Sacred Maiden Profound Art first and moreover they would also be attacked by the thirty odd golden celestials that were on Ling Feiyue’s side.
Ling Feiyue giggled softly, “Qianxue, this hall is a little too small for us. I don’t want to be accused of destroying your sect’s great hall and I am too poor to pay for the damages. Why don’t we fight outside?”
When she had said that, Ling Feiyue and her followers had flashed out of the great hall without waiting for Xue Qianxue to reply her.
Before anyone could advise Xue Qianxue, she had already followed Ling Feiyue outside in a blink of an eye!
Immediately tens of thousands of cultivators from the bronze seats had all followed suit. After all, no one wanted to miss the epic duel that was between these two beautiful saintesses!
Yuan Ji was naturally one of the first to dash out of the hall; he really did not want to see either one of them got killed by the other.
When he was outside, he was just in time to see Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue had already raised their palms and they were already charging headlong against each other!
Even though he was unwilling to let the two maidens see him at the same time or he would be caught in a situation that he could not explain and may even have a disastrous consequence but if he did not intervene now, these two maidens would be soon be on each other throat. One of them may die or even both!
Out of desperation, he flashed into their midst as he swung his divine sword.
“Qianxue, Feiyue! Stop!”
Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were power cultivators and if Yuan Ji did not display his divine sword to ward off their profound powers, he would be killed by them in the next instant. And he could tell that they were using 100% of their profound strength in order to raise their profound arts to its highest level.
There was a divine rainbow halo around Yuan Ji divine sword as he raised his sword energies to the highest level that he could muster. This was the result of the divine harmony with his divine sword. All of a sudden there was a double halo around his divine sword that startled all the onlookers, including Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue.
Usually if a cultivator had managed to divine harmonize with their divine sword, there would only be a single halo. A single halo was hard enough and for a divine sword to have double halo, the cultivator must be completely be one with his sword.
Now this was easily said than done and that was why it was actually a miracle to see it happening before their very eyes now.
Divine swords have their own sentient and every divine sword is unique. Although one may be one with the sword but to be in perfect harmony with their divine sword, it is still nearly an impossible thing.
Some divine swords were forged thousands of years ago and it was impossible for their new owner to truly know exactly what their divine swords had been through. Because of the lack of empathy for their divine swords, it was considered an impossible thing to create a double halo even though it had been theorized by many of the ancient sages in the past.
Even Yuan Ji was quite startled that his divine sword suddenly had a double halo when he was displaying it.
“I and Xiang Li are one? This is the Perfect Divine Harmony?”
Xiang Li chuckled shyly, “That’s right. I know that you want to bang Feiyue and Qianxue.”
Yuan Ji could not believe what he was hearing from his soul sea but he could not resist an exasperated reply to Xiang Li, “What is this going to do with you…”
Xiang Li laughed, “We are in perfect harmony on this.”
Yuan Ji: …
When Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue saw the double halo of a divine sword that was wielded by a bearded man in front of them, they were quite startled but they had also immediately saw through his disguise in the next instant.
Ling Feiyue was very familiar with Yuan Ji’s divine sword and his attack posture while Xue Qianxue could never forget his familiar voice that was full of tenderness.
“Ji Yuan!” Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue stammered out at the same time as they quickly withdrew their fists when they were almost upon each other.
“Why are you here?” Both maidens said at the same time.
Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were startled that they were asking Ji Yuan the exact thing.
“She knows you?” Again, the two maidens had said the exact same thing.
Ling Feiyue, Xue Qianxue: …
Yuan Ji stammered, “There is no time to explain now. Before the cultivators from the seven major orthodox clans are here, I must take Qianxue away. As for you, Feiyue…I want you to quickly flee the scene.”
The thousands of cultivators from the bronze, silver and gold seats were still coming out of the great hall in their thousands and they were blocking the helpless cultivators from the prestige seats that were still struck inside.
Xue Qianxue was delighted, “Ji Yuan, you are here for me?”
Ling Feiyue said melancholy as she looked a little lost at Yuan Ji, “It is no wonder why you didn’t want to tell me…”
Yuan Ji quickly said, “Hurry, we must all leave now! This is a perfect opportunity for us all to escape. I will explain later…”
All of a sudden Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue had ignored Yuan Ji as they suddenly slammed their palms together with a thunderous impact that created a powerful shockwave around them.
At the same time the thirty odd air borne unorthodox cultivators were all throwing bombs from their flying mounts that exploded into dark smog at the open space platform that they were at!
Very soon, the entire platform was shrouded in dark smog and all the orthodox cultivators were startled.
“What is going on?”
“I can’t see anything at all…”
“Even my divine sense can’t penetrate through this dark smog…”
“Ling Feiyue is too despicable! She knows that she can’t win Xue Qianxue and she is playing dirty!”
When the dark smog had landed, Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue had both grabbed Yuan Ji at the same time as they flashed to Ling Feiyue’s flying mount that was stationary nearby!
Yuan Ji was startled by their co-ordinated movements and they were soon in the air in the next blink of an eye.
“This? What is going on?” Yuan Ji was looking a little stupefied.
Xue Qianxue giggled softly, “Feiyue is here to rescue me. That’s why.”
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji stammered for words, “I thought that the two of you have a feud with each other?”
Xue Qianxue winked at him, “Ever since our duel a hundred years ago, we have since become the best of friends.”
Yuan Ji was stunned, “Best of friends?!”
Xue Qianxue smiled, “That’s right. I have requested for her to help me. But I have not really expected Feiyue will be so bold as to really come.”
Ling Feiyue said quietly, “If I have not come then I will never know that Ji Yuan will actually be here to rescue you. So how did the two of you meet again?”
Xue Qianxue laughed softly, “And how did you manage to find him too?”
Ling Feiyue averted her eyes, “It is a long story. I tell you when we have landed.”
Xue Qianxue turned to Yuan Ji to ask shyly, “Ji Yuan, I may no longer be able to return to the Celestial Orthodox Sect. If I become an unorthodox cultivator, will you still love me as before?”
Ling Feiyue sarcastically interrupted, “He won’t want to be with you. Because he will tell you that the two of you are from different worlds and can never be together.”
When Yuan Ji heard her, he could only manage a bitter smile. It was because that was what he had told Ling Feiyue before they had broken up.
But to Xue Qianxue he replied firmly, “No matter, I will not leave you or despise you.”
When Ling Feiyue heard him, she was trembling lightly and looked away while Xue Qianxue was looking at Yuan Ji with an emotional sentimental look.
“So the two of you are actually working together?” Yuan Ji asked curiously.
Xue Qianxue nodded.
She soon explained to him that Ling Feiyue would purposely challenge her to a duel and as soon as they were outside, they would begin their exit plans. The signal for action would be when they had first clashed against each other. That was why the minute that Ling Feiyue’s followers were outside, they had actually taken flight and were waiting for the signal to happen so that they could throw down the smog bombs.
When Yuan Ji had heard their plans, he could not help praising their plans. “It is actually much more brilliant than my own plans. But this plan has a flaw. The executor must have an iron gut to storm the Celestial Orthodox Sect and must be prepared for all the possible contingencies. In reality, this plan is actually extremely risky to complete.”
Then he added with as soft sigh, “Ling Feiyue is actually willing to risk her life for you?”
Xue Qianxue chuckled softly, “We are the best of friends.”
Ling Feiyue had suddenly turned around to say with bleary eyes, “Maybe after today, we may no longer be the best of friends. I like Ji Yuan and I want to be with him.”
Xue Qianxue was startled, “Feiyue, you…”
But she was soon smiling to her, “We did say that no matter who manage to find him first, we will always be the best of friends. Have you forgotten about it?”
Ling Feiyue: …
Yuan Ji lamented bitterly, “What for? I will soon be a dead man in a month time.”
Ling Feiyue stared at him with a firm look, “Then I shall follow you to your grave!”
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Xue Qianxue was startled but she was soon smiling, “No matter, we are still the best of friends or else why will you come for me?”
Then she turned to say to Yuan Ji shyly, “You have really come for me. So what is your plan?”
Yuan Ji replied awkwardly, “Actually my plan is very simple and not worth mentioning.”
Ling Feiyue could not resist a soft chuckle, “I bet that he is probably going to be a dead man if his plan had been followed through.”
Yuan Ji frowned before he said shamelessly, “Not really. With my skills, I will probably thrash all my opponents and rescue Qianxue.”
Xue Qianxue took a look at his straight face before she chuckled jovially, “You sound like you do not have a plan at all.”
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
“I do have a plan. While I distract everyone, Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue will rescue you.” He pointed out with an awkward look. “But before I can execute my plan, it is interrupted by Feiyue. If not, you will be able to witness my plan.”
“How do you plan on getting yourself out of the great hall?” Xue Qianxue asked him curiously. “Are you really going to thrash all the thousands of cultivators?”
Yuan Ji rubbed his chin as he said shamelessly, “Of course I am. To rescue you, I am willing to do anything.”
“And that includes lying?” Xue Qianxue chuckled as she held onto her belly.
Even Ling Feiyue was laughing jovially when she had heard Xue Qianxue.
Yuan Ji: …
“Naturally I do have my trump cards but I am not sharing.”
When he saw that Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were still laughing at him, he added bitterly. “If I have thirty golden celestials under my leadership and enough wealth to buy a flying mount, I can definitely come up with an even more impressive plan.”
Xiang Li was also laughing jovially in his soul sea, “Shameless…you’re too shameless…”
Yuan Ji said to Xiang Li with a straight face, “I can only tell you that my rescue plan has been a great success. After all, we have got Qianxue out now.”
