Chapter 134: The Secret Citadel Base (2)
After Little Princess had found out that Zhao Songjin and Yin Wei had conspired against her, she had found a corner to cry her heart out.
She was not weeping because of them but it was for Ji Yuan.
“He must have viewed the memory stone by now and he must be thinking that I am a wanton woman…in his heart, he must be despising me…”
Her eyes were woeful and were puffy red. “Ji Yuan, I know that you’re that Yuan Ji. You will rather have Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue than me…”
All of a sudden she was gasping as she coughed out another mouthful of blood. Her internal injuries were not light at all.
The reason why she had suddenly lost control of her internal energies regulations was because she had suddenly remembered that Yuan Ji had a duel with the Divine Palace Master of the Hundred Flower Palace.
“I…am…sorry…I really wish that I can intervene in that duel for you even if I’m may not be the match of the Divine Palace Master. Even…if you don’t love me…”
“Didn’t you say that you will be with me till the end of times? Why did you break my heart…”
“No, he has never promised me that. I am the foolish one that had said that…”
“Ji Yuan, why can’t you understand my heart for you…”
“Other than you, I have never dual cultivate with anyone else…”
“He must really hate me so much. I did an unforgivable thing. I had caused him to break off with Saintess Yuluo and now she had even died in his hands…”
Everyone was now saying that Ji Yuan was the one that had killed Sword Saintess Jian Yuluo and that he had become the Sword Demon Ji Yuan.
“I am the one that made you into a monster. I am really such a horrible person…if it isn’t for me, the two of you would have already been together by now…”
Actually Little Princess was wrong on this. Jian Yuluo’s father, the Sect Master Jian Kang will never allow his daughter to marry Ji Yuan because he had a poor background. In his grand scheme of things, his daughter must marry someone from the seven major orthodox clans to strengthen the Profound Heaven Sword Manor. Even if Ji Yuan is a Sword Saint, he was not a seventh realm saint and the seven major orthodox clans had always looked down on the pure sword cultivators.
Although Ji Yuan is a saint now, it will still never be able to change Sect Master Jian Kang opinion of him because he is as poor as a desert.
“Ji Yuan…” Little Princess was melancholy. He was the first man that she had loved and still love. “I know that you are dead now. Rest assures that I will not let the Divine Palace Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace off for killing you. If I don’t die after I have avenged you, I will definitely join you in the netherlands!”
After she had made this silent promise in her heart, she had dried her tears and left this hateful citadel.
After she had left the citadel, Yin Wei had also left for his other citadels.
Before Yi Wei had left, he ordered everyone to comb the mountains for any chaste maidens that they could find and to bring them back to the citadel.
Back to the present;
Dong Feifei was now saying to Yuan Ji, “Great Celestial, when can I see you again? So that I can one day repay you for your sake.”
Yuan Ji smiled weakly, “It is alright. This is really nothing at all.”
He had thought that after he had told Dong Feifei and her group that he was the Sword Demon Ji Yuan, they would be scared off by him. Rather, they were only surprised for just a little while before they were greeting him respectfully again.
“Quickly go home. I will take care of the rest.”
“Will you like to visit our Iron Vessel Clan?” Bong Feifei asked quietly.
“I still have something on.” Yuan Ji replied her nonchalantly.
Dong Feifei had a reluctant look before she finally turned her back to leave. She was actually not the only one and several of the female cultivators were also looking at him with great reluctance as they left.
After Bai Feifei and her group had left, Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue had leapt down from the cliff.
“Look what have you done. You have just broken another maiden’s heart!” Ling Feiyue chuckled softly. “She is actually quite pretty. How can you let her go just like this?”
Yuan Ji made a frown, “How is it possible for me to break her heart when we aren’t even together?”
Xue Qianxue giggled, “Our Brother Yuan Ji here is such a romantic cultivator. He’s sowing his seeds wherever he goes. Unfortunately for that Maiden Dong Feifei, she did not know that this fish needs plenty of resources to catch and is extremely slippery.”
“Yea. I really pity her.” Ling Feiyue sighed softly. “She doesn’t even have a chance because she is also too weak to force our Brother Yuan Ji here to be committed to her. Now that I have thought of this, Sister Jiajia is really so brilliant to force him to get bonded to our Sister Yan. Because we have Sister Yan to break his ice wall, we all have our chances now.”
Xue Qianxue nodded as she giggled lovingly, “If not, we will be like her and will be suffering from heartbreaks.”
“I betting that even our Sister Yan may not have an easier time with him even with Sister Jiajia’s help. He is probably struggling with his heart demons for many months whether to bed her or not. This I am very sure.” Ling Feiyue added with a playful chuckle.
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
“Can we talk about something else?” Yuan Ji muttered weakly.
“Why did you tell them that you are the Demon Sword Ji Yuan? What did you promise Sister Jiajia? You’re not supposed to tell anyone that you are Ji Yuan. Have you forgotten about this already?” Xue Qianxue shot him a stern look.
Ling Feiyue tapped him on his chest with her fingers, “Please explain yourself!”
Yuan Ji laughed, “Of course I am Yuan Ji now. The beardless Yuan Ji. With the current situation now, if I tell them that I am Yuan Ji then we won’t have any peace in the future. But what if I tell them that I’m the Sword Demon Ji Yuan? Then in the future they will all be looking for Ji Yuan and will never know that I am actually Palace Master Yuan Ji from the Emperor Hall Sect.”
“This…makes a little sense…” the two maidens began to mutter as they hesitated to ponder over his words.
“Therefore I am going to blacken Ji Yuan. Whatever Ji Yuan does, it is none of my business because I’m Yuan Ji now.”
Yuan Ji grinned at them. “Make sense? Therefore I am Sword Demon Ji Yuan now.”
Xue Qianxue muttered softly, “I got a feeling that we are going to be tricked by him…”
Ling Feiyue rolled her eyes, “But what he says actually makes sense.”
“Of course it makes sense.” Yuan Ji chuckled. “Come, follow me!”
“Where are we going?” the two maidens asked him.
Yuan Ji said solemnly, “If I am not wrong then there is a secret citadel of the Evil Cultivation Palace nearby. We are naturally going to track it down and free the innocents. There may be more captives.”
Ling Feiyue gasped, “With just the three of us? Are you sure?”
“My daring Feiyue will actually be afraid?” Yuan Ji laughed as he looked coolly at her.
“Of course not! Let’s go then!”
Xue Qianxue smiled weakly, “The two of you are really too bold. This is not a good idea at all. Surely there will be quite a few saints around.”
She was suddenly sighing because Yuan Ji and Ling Feiyue had already walked off without her.
Yuan Ji was actually rubbing his chin as he wondered if he would be able to locate Little Princess…
