Chapter 118: Qianfeng, I want you to be with me!
Bai Qianfeng aka the Abyssal Null Goddess was hiding in a small crevice crack of the mountains. Her heart was feeling extremely miserable and she was at a loss.
Ever since she had met this unruly cultivator Yuan Ji, she was always down on her luck.
First she had failed to kill him and was forced to acknowledge him as her master.
Now her soul sea had even mutated and she had suddenly become a righteous immortal that she had hated.
“What am I now? A traitor to my kind? How do I continue my battle in the heavens?”
“I may have walked away from him but I can’t go away far from him. This slave collar binds me to him. Why am I so stupid to help him at the risk of blowing my cover…”
“So this is a slave collar?” Yuan Ji asked as he jumped lightly in front of her.
He was grinning, “Where do you think you are going? This place has been my home for several centuries. I know every rock and hidden trails in this place.”
Bai Qianfeng was startled that her divine sense was not able to sense his approach. She had immediately turned ashen. “You…when did you…”
She had accidentally revealed that her spiritual collar was a slave collar…
“Although I can’t say that my attacking profound arts are in the top ten ranking but my lightless profound art can be in the top five whenever I have the mood to make myself invisible.”
Bai Qianfeng was stunned. Although she had heard him saying it all too many times in the past, she had never truly believed him. But today, she had finally known that he was really not boasting at all.
“This slave collar. What is it all about? Care to share with me?” Yuan Ji asked her gently. “And how do I remove it?”
Bai Qianfeng hummed coldly, “Remove it? Will you remove something that you can control and hold power to? The conditions to remove it are really simple. You must be fully aware of what it can do and you must be willing to remove the slave collar on your own free will. In this world, no one will be willing to…”
“So easy? I hereby order this slave collar to be removed from my Bai Qianfeng. From now onward she will have her freedom back. Is that how it works?” Yuan Ji asked her curiously.
Bai Qianfeng was startled as she felt her slave collar disappearing.
“Why are you so silly? Do you know that with this slave collar, this goddess will be your slave forever and your will become my will as well. Why did you do that for?” She stammered out. “And do you know that this goddess here had even tried to kill you in the past?”
Yuan Ji grinned, “Because you are my beloved consort Bai Qianfeng so how can I even allow you to wear a slave collar?”
Bai Qianfeng gasped with an exasperated look at him, “You are not listening at all. I just said that I had tried to kill you before…”
All of a sudden Yuan Ji had interrupted her with a kiss on her lips, “The past is past. That isn’t important anymore. From today onward, you are you again and you’re not anyone’s slave. I only know that you’re Bai Qianfeng that I had spent hundreds of moons with. That is enough.”
Bai Qianfeng was trembling uncontrollable as she fell into his embrace. She hit him lightly on his chest, “Why are you so stupid…”
Then she pushed him away, “Now that this goddess is freed, I will leave you forever to continue my own cultivation. So goodbye…”
“Qianfeng, be with me. I know that I may have only a week left more to live. Please accompany me till to the end. I promise you that I won’t force you to do anything against your will, alright?” Yuan Ji said quietly and he was looking earnestly at her.
He pleaded again. “Qianfeng, I really want you to be with me, alright?”
Bai Qianfeng was trembling as she averted her eyes, “I have an immortal title…”
“I know. The Abyssal Null Goddess. You had told me just before we had left the Dream Trial together.” Yuan Ji sighed softly. “I’m so sorry that I didn’t think too much about it. I’ve thought that it is all a dream. Do you know how happy I was just now when I saw you again? I can never forget the hundred of moons that we had been through. Can you?”
He added with trembling lips, “What must I do to make you stay with me?”
Xiang Li had appeared outside of Yuan Ji’s soul sea and she was pleading, “Trial Helper Qianfeng, please don’t go. Awww, you are not the Trial Helper but real? Wow. I also didn’t think that I can get to see you again. It is so wonderful. Do you know that I like you the most!”
Bai Qianfeng was suddenly flustered when she saw Xiang Li.
She knew that Xiang Li was always peeping at them when they were making love. Peeping is the wrong word to use. Xiang Li actually watches quite openly…
“You are my best friend!” Xiang Li was actually brimming with tears. “How can you leave me just like this?
It was the truth. They had actually become the best of friends while they were inside the Dream Trial.
Bai Qianfeng trembled as she averted her eyes from Yuan Ji and Xiang Li, “You must do three things for me as a compensation to my humiliations…”
Yuan Ji was grinning all of a sudden, “Alright!”
“Wait! I haven’t finish yet. There are more…” Bai Qianfeng hastily said, “You must dedicate another one hundred poems to me as well.”
“No problem! So you can go with me now?” Yuan Ji eagerly said.
“No wait. You mustn’t tell anyone about me too.” Bai Qianfeng quickly added with woeful eyes.
“Oh? Why?” Yuan Ji asked curiously. “Don’t you want to know Qianxue, Feiyue, Chengxi and Yan’Er as well?”
Bai Qianfeng was flushing lightly, “I already know them well in the Dream Trial…”
“This is different. You will get to know their real self. Isn’t this a much better thing?” Yuan Ji had already taken her hands and held it tightly.
While he was holding her hands, he was trembling. “Qianfeng, it is so good to see you again…”
Bai Qianfeng inhaled softly before she fell into Yuan Ji’s embrace and she was weeping. “Thank you for removing the slave collar…”
Xiang Li chuckled happily as she interrupted their best moments, “So when will the two of you be free to do it?”
Bai Qianfeng, Yuan Ji: …
When Yuan Ji had returned to where Xue Qianxue, Ling Feiyue, Fairy Ye Chengxi and Shangguan Yan were, he was carrying a nine-tail spirit fox.
Ling Feiyue could not resist a cold mock, “So who is this Maiden Qianfeng? Did you find her?”
Yuan Ji grinned. “Yea! She is an old friend of mine. It is so good to see her again.”
Xue Qianxue was frowning unhappily, “So is she pretty?”
Yuan Ji could feel that Bai Qianfeng was biting his fingers so he replied with a laugh, “Yea. Very pretty maiden.”
When Bai Qianfeng had heard him, she was licking his fingers again.
Xue Qianxue hummed with a not too pleased look, “You should have introduced this friend of yours to us. She can actually slay this epic desolate monster with a single sword stroke so I guess that she must have some really extraordinary background. Just who is she?”
All of a sudden Guo Taiming was calling out loudly, “Brother Yuan Ji! It is so good to see you again! Do you know that I really miss you so much?”
Yuan Ji was suddenly happy to see Guo Taiming again as he walked to him with open arms, “Brother Guo! How are you?”
Guo Taiming laughed jovially, “I am fine…”
All of a sudden Yuan Ji had punched him hard on his cheek and had sent him to fly backward with a tremendous crash on the cliff behind.
Everyone, including the onlookers and Guo Tianming were all stunned by Yuan Ji’s sudden irrational action.
“Brother Yuan Ji, why did you hit me for?” Guo Taiming asked with a perplexed look. “Did I do anything wrong?”
Yuan Ji grinned, “Thank goodness that we are not in a dream. I keep dreaming that you have been greening me in my dream. Haha. I just hit you just to make sure that I am not dreaming.”
Guo Taiming laughed too, “Is that so? Hoho. Brother Yuan Ji, your cultivation is getting more and more powerful nowadays. How do you even know what I am dreaming about. Haha.”
Yuan Ji: …
“Brother Yuan Ji, why did you suddenly unsheathed your divine sword and you’re pointing at me now?”
