Chapter 114: Return to Five Heavens Peak
Yuan Ji, Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were once again flying on the Spirit Crane. And of course there was also Xiaobai who was cuddling in Yuan Ji’s arms and she was licking his fingers.
Xue Qianxue saw what Xiaobai was doing and she muttered, “Weird. I don’t remember Xiaobai has this habit of licking your fingers?”
Yuan Ji laughed, “Of course she does. She has this habit of licking my fingers for many years now.”
Xue Qianxue, Ling Feiyue: ???
They were now heading toward the Five Heavens Peaks where the Emperor Hall Sect was. Before his duel, he was going to see Fairy Ye Chengxi and Shangguan Yan again. He had promised them that he would return just before his duel with the Divine Palace Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace and he intended to keep his promise.
While they were on the flight, Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were suddenly giggling as they asked him. “Come on, there is no one else now. Surely you’re not that mean and don’t want to tell us how you have overcome the Dream Trial? We are your consorts!”
The two great saintesses were now jostling him left and right as they displayed their most mesmerizing demeanors to force him to drop his defenses.
“Brother Ji Yuan…”
Xue Qianxue was grinning as she showed him her beautiful exposed thigh, “I’ve already taken the Dream Trial once before so I can’t take it again. So no harm telling me…”
“I don’t have 1 billion high grade soul jewels hehe…” Ling Feiyue was laughing softly and pressing her bosoms on his back.
“How do you beat the Cunning and Ruthless MC?”
Yuan Ji sighed before he said, “He may be the Cunning and Ruthless MC but he is also a greedy MC.”
“Greedy MC?” Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue pondered at the same time before they gasped together, “Don’t tell me that you have actually tried to bribe the MC? You can actually bribe the MC?”
Yuan Ji chuckled, “I didn’t bribe him. I play upon his greed actually. I give him all that he wants.”
Xue Qianxue was extremely perplexed, “That doesn’t explain your final fate and how you have managed to temper your soul. What extreme hardship did you go through?”
Even Ling Feiyue was staring blankly at him.
They just could not understand what was going on!
“Why not I share with you my experiences during my Dream Trial and you shall tell me yours?” Xue Qianxue was winking her most enthralling cuteness at him.
Yuan Ji of course did not want to tell them that he had shamelessly changed and took over the MC’s name, including the MC’s ‘supposed’ consorts for himself.
He could only say that the MC was an idiot for switching name with him without knowing that he was actually changing his fate with him. Muhaha. But he will keep this in his heart. No one except Xiang Li will ever know this secret of his.
Bai Qianfeng naturally did not come into his mind. It was because she was the Trial Helper and not real.
“Ji Yuan is always doing weird stuff.” Ling Feiyue sighed softly.
Yuan Ji frowned, “We are not at the Eon Firmament Mountains now. You can stop calling me Ji Yuan now. Remember you are supposed to be addressing me as Yuan Ji.”
“Ji Yuan, Ji Yuan, Ji Yuan!” Ling Feiyue chuckled softly, “I like calling you this way.”
Yuan Ji: …
Then Ling Feiyue said to Xue Qianxue, “Sister Qianxue, let me tell you something interesting. Do you want to know?”
“What is it?”
“I tell you how Ji Yuan becomes the only core protégé of his old master, alright? Keke.”
“Alright! Please tell me!”
Yuan Ji muttered almost incoherent, “My shameful past is not worthy to be brought up.”
“Do you know that his master will only accept a core protégé if his protégés can survive a beating from him for one hour?”
“What?! His old master is so mean?”
“Guess what Ji Yuan did in the end?”
“What he did? Um! Is this the answer? Waa…he bribed his master?”
Yuan Ji: …
“Feiyue, you don’t need to tell the whole world about it…”
“What are you afraid of? There is only Sister Qianxue here. If I am in a bad mood then I will tell your other two consorts about it too. Keke.”
Yuan Ji: …
Unknown to Ling Feiyue and the rest, the Abyssal Null Goddess was quietly listening to their conversations. So this is his story? Every day I am learning a little more about him…
“Let me tell you what he did in the Lotus Sword Mansion with me…”
“There was one time that I told him not to take the yellow portal to conserve our profound strength and to take the blue portal to go up to the next level. Do you know which portal he took?”
“He took the yellow portal?”
“Precisely! Sister Qianxue, you are so smart!”
“He really took the yellow portal? I am only guessing…”
“He told me my suggestion is a wise one to take the blue portal but instead he took the yellow portal. I feel like slapping him that time but alas, I was proven wrong…”
Ling Feiyue told Xue Qianxue what had happened in the Lotus Sword Mansion Trial.
Xue Qianxue chuckled, “The two of you have so fun in the trials. Let’s go for another one together…”
Ling Feiyue smiled shyly, “I had also learnt that we are actually together for the past three lifetimes too. This is actually our fourth lifetime together…”
Yuan Ji: …
Xiang Li, I want to kill you…
Xiang Li was laughing in Yuan Ji’s soul sea, “It is all thanks to me!”
While the two maidens were chatting, the Abyssal Null Goddess was listening intently and there was a burning envy in her eyes.
“Sister Qianxue, do you remember that time when I ask him to peep at you?”
“That is my most embarrassing moment…yes why?”
“We have given him specific instructions to follow but he never follows…”
Yuan Ji: …
“Ahem!” Yuan Ji coughed weakly. “Can we please don’t dig up the past?”
Xue Qianxue completely ignored Yuan Ji and laughed shyly, “Do you know that at that time I was actually quite afraid. I thought that I was ambushed by a superior saint but it is actually him! His lightless profound art is really not weak at all. Did he practice his stealth a lot by sneaking around the bathrooms?”
Ling Feiyue giggled softly, “Come to think of that, he seems like a pro when he is walking on the roof and when he is sneaking around. Sister Qianxue, we must be careful when we are around him in the future!”
Yuan Ji looked down from the Spirit Crane and he felt like jumping down from the sky to the bottomless abyss below so that he could hide his flustered face.
“Sister Qianxue, I forgot to tell you that he had written a poem in the Lotus Sword Mansion just for me. Let me recite it to you. The heavenly smiles of the Goddess Maiden Feiyue is unparalleled, her mesmerizing laughter danced with the gentle winds, fills my heart with her endless delight.”
Yuan Ji was muttering almost incoherently, “I am actually not delighted at the moment even though I can see your beautiful smiles…”
Xue Qianxue immediately hit Yuan Ji on his chest, “This is so unfair! I want my own dedicated poem as well!”
Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “No inspiration and my brain is dead now.”
“Why are you so awful to me after you have married me?” Xue Qianxue puffed.
“Erm, I really can’t remember that I am nice toward you before we are bonded together. I thought I was always running away from you instead.” Yuan Ji laughed.
Xue Qianxue pinched him on his thigh as she chuckled, “This saintess here shall teach you how to be respectful to me. C’mon! Recite a poem for me!”
Yuan Ji laughed, “On the wings of the Mystic Crane, the fierce Maiden Qianxue…”
“No!!! I don’t like this one.” Xue Qianxue was hitting him and she had almost caused the two of them to drop from the sky.
“What. You are so hard to please…” Yuan Ji lamented. “You know that I am holding Xiaobai now and can’t retaliate…”
Ling Feiyue panicky stopped Xue Qianxue, “No fighting on a fragile flight! We may all fall…”
For the next three days, the two maidens had chatted nonstop and they had shared many intimate things.
The Abyssal Null Goddess had learnt many things about Xue Qianxue, Ling Feiyue and Yuan Ji. She learnt how they had got together because of a poem that Yuan Ji had once wrote and how a maiden who was called Xia Jiajia had setup all three of them to meet on that fateful day.
She resisted the temptation to revert to her true form and to talk to them.
She mused to herself. This goddess has been with Ji Yuan for hundreds of moons. During this period, he had dedicated a hundred poems to me. I will always remember the poems that he had dedicated to me in my heart…
All of a sudden Yuan Ji had stood up on the Spirit Crane and he was saying gravely. “We are now above the Five Heavens Peaks now but something is happening below.”
The mountains below were crawling with thousands of cultivators from over a hundred celestial clans!
Then the three of them saw a dreadful sight; a monstrous desolate beast was seen at the edge of the mountains.
Yuan Ji inhaled deeply, “Epic desolate beast…at least seventh rank…”
There are altogether nine ranks to a desolate beast in the Celestial Realm and every rank has three classes to denote the threatening level of the desolate beast; Primordial, Profound and Epic.
A profound class desolate beast will always be twice as powerful as a primordial class desolate beast of the same rank while an epic class desolate beast can be many times stronger depending on the species of the desolate beasts.
The epic class of any desolate beasts is always more dangerous and mysterious that any primordial and profound class. Luckily epic class desolate beasts are not easy to be encountered, are extremely rare and only exist among the seventh rank or higher desolate beasts.
Unfortunately, even an epic seventh rank desolate beast can be considered to be stronger than a ninth rank profound desolate beast.
