Chapter 81: Yuan Ji vs. the Two Goddess Maiden
Ling Feiyue had led Yuan Ji and Xue Qianxue to a nearby desolate mountain peak.
“We shall land here first.” Ling Feiyue said.
At the same time she said to her followers, “I still need your help to lead our pursuers away from us. I thank the efforts of everyone that is with me today. I will return my gratitude to everyone in the future.”
But her followers were all shouting fervently, “It is our duty and honor to serve our Dark Mistress!”
With that they had quickly flown away.
Yuan Ji was startled, “We are still in the vicinity of the Holy Maiden Peaks. Is it safe here?”
It was because he could see seven large profound aerial ships that were accompanied by hundreds of flying mounts that were in hot pursue of them.
Ling Feiyue returned a gentle smile as she shook her head, “Definitely not safe.”
“Then why?” Yuan Ji asked curiously.
Xue Qianxue chuckled softly, “I need Feiyue’s help to remove the profound tracer that my master has planted within my soul sea or else we won’t be able to get far.”
When Yuan Ji heard her, he understood immediately.
“Also there is a hot spring here, heh! I will like to take a dip in the hot spring for a while.” Xue Qianxue winked at him. “It may take a few hours. Why don’t you find a spot to rest first?”
Yuan Ji had suddenly remembered that Xue Qianxue liked to dip herself in a bathtub for long hours.
“Alright.” He said with a weak smile. He did not expect Xue Qianxue to have the mood for a hot spring dip at this critical time.
“Feiyue, let me show you this hot spring that I had mentioned to you before. The waters are really fragrance and you will surely love it as much as I do!”
Ling Feiyue nodded gently before she turned to Yuan Ji to give a stern look, “No peeking.”
Yuan Ji was half amused, “I am a man of culture. This is beneath me. Don’t forget that I am also renowned as the Gentleman of the Sword…”
“And you have peeped at Qianxue a hundred years ago?” Ling Feiyue frowned with disbelief.
“I was forced to do so and you should know.” Yuan Ji quickly said with great awkwardness.
Xue Qianxue was flushing shyly as she grabbed Ling Feiyue away, “Let’s go! That is all in the past now. Come, we have many things to catch up on.”
Removing the profound tracer was extremely easy now that Ling Feiyue was here. It would only take mere minutes given their combined profound strength. Xue Qianxue was actually very eager to find out from Ling Feiyue how she had managed to find Ji Yuan again.
Actually Ling Feiyue was also eager to find out about Xue Qianxue’s accounts.
Yuan Ji pretended to be indifferent as he watched the two of them walked away. When they were out of his sight, he began to mutter silently. “I wonder if Feiyue is still upset with me?”
He really had fond memories when he was with Ling Feiyue in the Lotus Sword Mansion. He had not expected that he would see her so soon again. But he was reluctant to reveal his feelings for her.
He began to rub his chin as he mumbled, “They are actually friends? Now this is really unexpected.”
All of a sudden he was frowning, “Did Qianxue say to Feiyue that they have many things to catch up on? I wonder what they will be gossiping about?”
“What if they are talking behind my back?”
Xiang Li had suddenly popped into his soul sea as she suggested excitingly, “Why don’t we go and take a look?”
Yuan Ji frowned coldly, “They are having a dip in the hot spring. This isn’t a good idea. Moreover I’m a Gentleman of the Sword.”
“If you keep your sword then you are not a Gentleman of the Sword anymore.” Xiang Li chuckled.
“Don’t be lame, alright?” Yuan Ji rebuked her unhappily. “I will never do such a thing…”
Xiang Li began to look dejected and had a disappointing look. But just as she was about to fade away, Yuan Ji suddenly said. “Xiang Li, do you think that Feiyue is really a maiden or a man? What if I am made a cuckold? I should check on them, am I right?”
“That is right! What are you waiting for? Go! Go!” Xiang Li exclaimed excitingly and her eyes were beaming with great anticipations.
Yuan Ji did not need any further prompting and he was soon flashing in the direction where Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue had disappeared earlier.
Soon he was up onto the cliff and had spotted Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue in the hot spring.
Xiang Li asked curiously, “Why did you go so far away for?”
Yuan Ji grinned, “They are all high level saintess. This distance is safe.”
“But didn’t you say that you want to hear what they are gossiping about?” Xiang Li said unhappily.
“That is secondary. The most important thing is to find out if Feiyue is a maiden or not.” Yuan Ji was already drooling as he said to Xiang Li. It was because it was too obvious that Ling Feiyue was a maiden as he watched the two goddess maidens.
Xiang Li was also drooling as she watched the two maidens in the hot spring, “Alas, I really don’t know which one to choose to be my new mistress…”
“Well Xiang Li, I’m sorry to disappoint you but you are struck with me now. We have a perfect divine harmony, you know.” Yuan Ji pointed out.
“Yes but soon you will be dead and I need to find myself a new owner.” Xiang Li chuckled.
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
“Before I die, I will tell the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace that I have a sentient divine sword. I’m sure that he will be really interested in you.”
“Eeekkkk!” Xiang Li was horrified by the thought.
Yuan Ji was soon quietly looking at the two maidens and he was soon in his own thoughts. There was nothing dirty in his mind at the moment and he was just appreciating the two great beauties.
He was actually paying more attention to Ling Feiyue and was looking at her every expression.
It was because although he had broken up with her but half of his heart was actually unwilling to do so. Therefore he wanted to know if she was really upset with him.
“Is she upset with me or not? She is obviously cold toward me earlier but why did she say that she still like me and will even be following me to the grave?” He was sighing. Sometimes he did not understand women and their hearts which were often full of contradictions.
“Maybe she is just trying to break Qianxue’s heart because she obviously knows that we are together? But Qianxue doesn’t seem to be angry with her. As a matter of fact, they seem to be getting quite well along. Hmm, I wonder what they are chatting about?”
“Maybe we should go take a closer look?” Xiang Li offered a suggestion as she gave him a helpful and innocent look.
But instead of replying to her, Yuan Ji had actually walked away!
He began to find a quiet spot under a tree to meditate. Although it appeared that he was meditating but he was actually thinking of Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue at the same time.
“They are really best friends?”
But after sorting out his thoughts, he had finally decided that he must not reciprocate Ling Feiyue at all costs. It was because he was afraid that she may decide to challenge the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Flower after his death. Worse, she may even drag Xue Qianxue into it.
“Ling Feiyue may be a gentle maiden but her guts are really bold as the iron guts of a donkey.”
Now that he had finally sorted out his thoughts, he felt more at peace with himself.
But after meditating for three hours, he was starting to curse. “Are they ducks? They are actually in the hot spring for so long?”
As he cursed them halfway, he could hear their approach and they were giggling at the same time.
He soon saw them holding hands together and his heart was suddenly pounding rapidly at their dazzling beauty. “This is too sinful.” He thought.
Xue Qianxue asked him all of a sudden, “Ji Yuan, what are you planning to do next?”
Yuan Ji did not want to lie to her so he replied, “I am going back to the Celestial Orthodox Sect. It is because I think that Saintess Fang Zhenfei is Xia Jiajia. I need to talk to her first before my duel.”
“You are going to be a dead man soon and yet you are still thinking of her? What a romantic cultivator.” Ling Feiyue hummed coldly. “Are you thinking of rekindling your romantic relationship with her?”
Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “Actually I dare not. I just want to hear her explanation. If not I can’t focus fully on my duel.”
“I do have a way for you to win your duel with the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace. Do you want to know?” Ling Feiyue asked him coolly.
Yuan Ji raised his eyes before asking curiously. “You have a way? What is it?”
“Why don’t you seduce the two saintesses from the Hundred Flower Divine Palace and request for their aids? They can be your spies in the Hundred Flower Divine Palace. At the very least, they may even reveal the weaknesses of the divine arts of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace to you.”
Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “You are asking me to seduce two innocent maidens so that I can make use of them to win the duel? I guess that you don’t know me well enough. I will never do anything like this…”
Ling Feiyue interrupted him coldly, “Oh, is that so? I have heard the three of you very loud and clear when you are in bed together.”
Yuan Ji: …
He had a stunned thought, “She didn’t leave that night?”
“You must be mistaken. I have actually kicked them off my bed that very night.” He said with great righteousness. This was the truth. He did kick them off his bed that very night and did not do anything to them.
“Then can you make a blood oath that you did not have any relationships with them at all?” Ling Feiyue stared at him coldly.
Yuan Ji: …
Although he did not have any relationship with them that night but he did have several relationships with them over the next couple of months. So how could he make a blood oath on this?
All of a sudden he had an idea, “I can make a blood oath that I did not have a relationship with them that night.”
Xue Qianxue chuckled softly as she interrupted him, “Why make a blood oath for that night? Maybe Sister Feiyue is mistaken that night. Why don’t you make a blood oath that you didn’t touch them ever. This is more believable.”
Yuan Ji: …
Finally he returned a resigned soft, “It is against my Dao to make use of them to win a duel.”
Ling Feiyue nodded and said gently, “Finally you are willing to speak the truth.”
“I am always speaking the truth.” Yuan Ji said with a straight face. “When did I ever lie to you?”
“You say that you are only toying with me. Is that the truth?” Ling Feiyue was suddenly looking at him with bleary tears. “I want you to say it again in front of my Sister Qianxue so that she will know what kind of a person are you.”
Yuan Ji was completely stupefied by her question.
He had a light tremble as he looked at her. Finally he was laughing bitterly and he was clenching his fists, “Yes, I lie. So what? You deserve a better cultivation partner.”
Then he turned to look at Xue Qianxue, “Qianxue, I was too reckless back then. If I can return to the past, I will never lay my hands on you…”
Xue Qianxue put her fingers on his cheek as she caressed him gently with a tender smile, “I don’t regret it. Why are you regretting? I have a good news for you. I am carrying your child now.”
When Yuan Ji had heard her, he was stunned. “What?!”
Xue Qianxue nodded as she tenderly place her fingers on her belly, “I have temporary suppressed the growth of our child with my profound strength.”
“Aren’t you glad?” She turned to Yuan Ji to ask him tenderly.
Yuan Ji stammered, “I am glad. Very glad. This…this is too sudden…”
“But alas, I may not have the chance to see my child.” He began to lament softly.
“We will bring this child up.” Xue Qianxue smiled.
“We?” Yuan Ji had a perplexed look as he looked at her.
“Sister Feiyue and I will bring our child up.” Xue Qianxue smiled. “Therefore you have to take us as your consorts.”
Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “It will be unfair to Feiyue. Why don’t we discuss this after my duel with the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace…”
Xue Qianxue had suddenly moved her fingers from his face and he could suddenly feel her profound strength behind his back as she chuckled softly, “Ji Yuan, today you are not going anywhere until you have bowed before the Heavens and the Earth to take the two of us as your consorts. Even though you may be able to handle one of us alone but I can promise you that with Sister Feiyue and I together, we are more than enough to handle you. Therefore if you are thinking of running away or even thinking of resisting us, you can very well forget about it.”
Ling Feiyue smiled gently, “A hundred years ago, you have managed to escape from us but we can promise you that in this desolate mountain peak, you have nowhere to run. And don’t think of even trying to get to my flying mount before us because she only listens to me.”
Yuan Ji: …
Xue Qianxue giggled, “From today onward, you have to follow our rules for you or else you can’t blame us for being impolite to our lord. What do you say?”
Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “Say whatever you want. Even though I want to protest but you can’t expect me to thrash the mother of my child, am I right?”
“Good!” Xue Qianxue clapped her hands delightfully. “From today onward, you are not to mention your beard or entertain any lofty thoughts of getting back your ugly beard again. You shall stay beardless forever.”
Yuan Ji said with great indignant, “You can insult me but you cannot insult my beautiful beard! I can take the two of you as my consorts but you have to follow my rules. After all, I am an alpha male. I can’t allow the two of you to trample upon my pride just like this…”
Ling Feiyue giggled softly, “Sister Qianxue, did you hear that? He is willing to take the two of us as his consorts today as long as we listen to his house rules.”
“Yes, I did.” Xue Qianxue giggled as she looked at Yuan Ji wryly. “From today onward, we will be your consorts.”
Yuan Ji was stunned when he had heard them. Did he just fall into their cleverly worded speech and now he had to take them as his consorts?
“By the way…” She winked at him. “In case you do not know. There is no remedy for your beard if you have lost your beard during your bodily transformation. In all the ancient celestial texts, there are no remedies at all. Therefore please stop thinking about your ugly beard for goodness sake!”
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji was stunned by the bad news that was revealed to him.
Soon after, a rather dejected Yuan Ji had taken Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue as his consorts as they bowed before the Heavens and the Earth.
“May the Heavens and the Earth be our witnesses. I, Ji Yuan, hereby take Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue as my beloved consorts…”
Yuan Ji did not stay dejected for too long. It was because he was very happy that very night as he shared a makeshift bed with the two goddess maidens.
The happiest person was not Yuan Ji, Xue Qianxue or Ling Feiyue as they finally resolved all their differences and misunderstanding but it was actually Xiang Li who was watching their battles throughout the night.
“Feiyue, didn’t I break your heart? Why are you still willing to forgive me?” Yuan Ji asked curiously.
“Because we have an unhappy past three lifetimes. I hope for a happier ending for us in this lifetime.” Ling Feiyue smiled shyly.
Yuan Ji: …
“This is actually Xiang Li’s lies…” He had decided to keep this in his heart.
“This is too intense for me to take…and too sinful….” Xiang Li giggled throughout the night.
