Chapter 101: Eon Firmament Mountains (1)
Yuan Ji, Ling Feiyue, Xue Qianxue and Xiaobai were now sitting on the giant Spirit Crane as they took flight from the mountains.
The terrains of the Desolate Celestial Fraternity are mostly mountainous and it is difficult to traverse quickly from one mountainous region to the other.
The celestials are actually only occupying the mountains above the desolate mists that blanket the mountains like an endless sea of clouds.
Below the desolate mists are uncountable number of desolate beasts and it is considered suicidal to go under the desolate mists.
That is why all the more powerful celestial clans have their sects high on the mountain peaks, away from the desolate mists. Also the mountain peaks that these powerful celestial clans occupy are also rich in spiritual force and are excellent grounds for cultivating.
When the mountains are rich with spiritual force, this means that the desolate force below the desolate mists are weak and therefore do not have high ranking desolate beasts around, making it safer too to establish the presence of a major celestial clan.
Similarly, if the spiritual force in the mountains are weak then the opposite happens; the desolate force below the desolate mists will be stronger and will have many high ranking desolate beasts and spirit plants.
Right now they were heading toward the mysterious Eon Firmament Mountains in a hope to see Diviner Mo Ming.
Along the way, Yuan Ji had a heavy heart.
It was because he was still thinking of Little Princess. Why did she give him the Memory Stone all of a sudden? He knew that she was being chased by the major orthodox clans and was injured. Was it because she knows that she may not have too long to live?
All of a sudden he had come to realize that maybe Little Princess’ threats of killing him and wishing him that he was never born was only empty threats to hide her bashful intentions for him.
For the very first time he was actually quite anxious for her.
The Abyssal Null Goddess was secretly looking at Yuan Ji as she touched his chest with her paws. Although she could not see what was in the memory stone but it seemed to her that when Yuan Ji had returned to look for Little Princess, the killing intent that was displayed earlier by him was no longer there.
Instead, it was replaced by a heavy heart and despair.
Yuan Ji’s heavy heart was not lost on Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue. They had suddenly noticed that Yuan Ji had a gloomy look when he had returned and it did not go away even when they were on the flight now.
Ling Feiyue turned to smile gently at him, “What did you lost? Is it important? Maybe we can help you to replace it?”
Xue Qianxue was also looking at him with a lovely smile, “Yes, what is it? Maybe we can help?”
When Yuan Ji saw the smiles that were on the two beautiful maidens, his heart managed to lighten a little. “It is actually nothing important. I…I am just thinking about my duel that will be forthcoming in less than 2 weeks. I am just sad that I will lose the two of you soon.”
Ling Feiyue said quietly, “I will join you in the netherworld if you die.”
“Don’t be silly. You have just overcome the super rare Purple Lightning Tribulation and you will have a long life as a celestial.” Yuan Ji rebuked her lightly.
Ling Feiyue averted her eyes, “This is nothing compared to our three past reincarnations together where you give up your life for me.”
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
“Xiang Li, look what have you done to her…” Yuan Ji was frowning to Xiang Li in his soul sea.
Xiang Li pretended to have a pitiful look but she was giggling in secret as evidenced by her soft giggles and trembles.
Xue Qianxue was now looking firmly at Yuan Ji as she touched her belly, “After I have settled my child, I will come to join the two of you!”
Yuan Ji: …
“Don’t be ridiculous and I won’t die. The Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace will find that I am a very hard nut to digest.”
“You mean a hard nut to crack?” Ling Feiyue smiled as she corrected him.
“No, hard nut to digest because he can’t crack me so he has to swallow me. But in the end I am also indigestible.” Yuan Ji said with all seriousness. “So he has to pass me out due to indigestion. Even if he is seventh realm saint, he can’t use his profound energies to digest me so he has to pass me out as poop.”
When a cultivator reaches the fifth realm level and form their golden celestial body, they no longer have to eat and drink so there are no such things as a toiletry system for them. Even if they drink or drink, the food that they consume can be vaporized quickly into energy in their body and the toxic energy expulsed through cultivation.
That was why tricks that worked against the lower realm cultivators like poisons are no longer effective against golden celestials.
All their profound life energies are derived by cultivating the spiritual force that are in the air much like the desolate beasts that depend upon the desolate force below the desolate mists.
Xue Qianxue, Ling Feiyue: …
Even the Abyssal Null Goddess was staring at the vulgarities that were mouthed by Yuan Ji: …
Xue Qianxue murmured, “Yuan Ji, this is so crude. Can you not use languages like this?”
“It is too vulgar.” Ling Feiyue agreed. “Even unorthodox cultivators don’t talk like this.”
Yuan Ji was smiling bitterly. Actually everyone talks like this. It is only the upper class cultivators that don’t…
But he decided to keep his mouth shut and did not share his thoughts with them.
“Xiang Li, there is nothing wrong with my talk, right?
“Yea! Nothing wrong at all.” Xiang Li replied happily.
“Xiang Li, you are truly my only confidant. Haha.” Yuan Ji laughed.
“That’s right! That’s why we are able to divine harmony with each other. Hehe.” Xiang Li answered him.
“So, when are you going to do your banging again? I need some entertainment.”
Yuan Ji: …
“Xiang Li, I need to sit down to talk to you. Why are you so vulgar?” Yuan Ji growled.
“I am vulgar?” Xiang Li answered, not understanding.
“That is right.” Yuan Li coughed before he said with great seriousness. “Ahem. I don’t blame you because you have no idea of the intricate relationships between men and women here. First all, we are all people of culture here…”
All in all, he spent about thirty minutes to explain to Xiang Li.
Finally he asked, “So do you understand now? In short, these are taboos! You should not freely mention things like this.”
Xiang Li giggled, “Xiang Li completely understands! So when are you going to bang hard next?”
Yuan Ji: …
“I think you have completely missed my point here…”
“I didn’t mention directly now and I am indirectly about it. Isn’t that what you have said earlier?”
Yuan Ji: …
“Then what should I say?” Xiang Li asked him curiously.
“You should ask when I am free to do it.” Yuan Ji reprimanded her gently. “This is more discreet.”
“Oh…” Xiang Li muttered. “So when are you free to do it?”
Yuan Ji laughed, “That’s right. That is how you ask me. Haha. As long as we touch down on this stupid bird, I will bang them hard.”
“YES!!!” Xiang Li clapped her hands with delight.
All of a sudden Xiang Li was muttering to herself. “This doesn’t sound right somewhere? Did he just use the word bang directly?”
The Spirit Crane is a spirit flying beast that can fly ten times faster than a griffon flying beast, five times faster than a lightning eagle and its speed is secondary only to a phoenix.
In just a single day they had already reached the majestic views of the Eon Firmament Mountains as thousands of mythical birds and floating islands appeared in front of them.
“This place is so beautiful…” Ling Feiyue was gasping. I have heard that this place is as close as the immortal realm as it can get.”
The Abyssal Null Goddess yawned silently. The Immortal Realm is much more beautiful!
Yuan Ji was looking at the terrain below closely before he said, “What the heck? This mountain range isn’t connected to any other mountains and it is surrounded by desolate mists.”
Xue Qianxue chuckled, “That is right. The only way to reach this mountain range is to mount a flying beast to it. Diviner Mo Ming is said to stay in one of the floating islands around the tallest peak.”
Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “Which floating islands? There are so many…”
All of a sudden there was a thunderous voice that was echoing in the air that was directed at them. “LEAVE THIS PLACE or YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO LEAVE ALIVE!!!”
Xue Qianxue chuckled, “Here you go. We just have to follow this voice.”
Yuan Ji: …
“Erm, Qianxue. Do you think that it is wiser for us to heed to this warning?” Yuan Ji put forth a word of caution. After all, only a caution hero would live long. “I can sense that this place is surrounded by powerful defensive arrays and formations. It is dangerous for us to continue further.”
Xue Qianxue winked at him, “You got only less than two weeks to live. Why do you still need to be so cautious for?”
Yuan Ji frowned, “I am only cautious for the sake of the two of you…”
“Go forward. Full speed!” Xue Qianxue urged her Spirit Crane forward, completely ignoring Yuan Ji.
Yuan Ji: …
