Chapter 135: The Secret Citadel Base (3)
Yuan Ji soon found the entrance of the secret citadel of the Evil Cultivation Palace that was located deep in the mountains.
The entrance was heavily guarded by more than ten cultivators and there was even a golden celestial among them.
“How did you manage to find the base of the Evil Cultivation Palace so quickly?” Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were astonished.
Yuan Ji smiled weakly. “It is all due to luck.”
The two maidens rolled their eyes. It was obvious not true.
Yuan Ji was actually very familiar with the secret markings of the Evil Cultivation Palace. After all, he had once been a prisoner of Little Princess and he had made many failed attempts to escape before he had finally succeeded.
Therefore it was not difficult for him to find the secret citadel quickly once he knows that there was a base of the Evil Cultivation Palace in the nearby mountain vicinity.
He turned to say to Xiaobai, “Qianfeng, stay over here to watch over our Spirit Crane while we go and take a look inside. Don’t worry we will be alright.”
Bai Qianfeng displayed a light tremble before she nodded.
Yuan Ji smiled as he gave her a pat on her head before he departed with Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue.
Bai Qianfeng was unusually quiet because she had been thinking about something lately and that was to surrender her body to Yuan Ji. She had made a quiet promise to give herself to him if he survived his duel.
And he did.
Even though his duel is not a life-threatening duel due to a special circumstance but an immortal promise is sacred to her soul sea. Therefore she had to keep her oath.
She was extremely bashful when she had thought of it. I have to find an opportunity to be alone with him first…
When Yuan Ji had suddenly appeared into view to the cultivators that were guarding the entrance of the citadel, he had purposely suppressed his cultivation realm level by hiding his golden eyes with his mystic art.
As for Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue, they were donning their curtain veils to hide their faces.
Yuan Ji had told them to pretend to be his prisoners and ask them to close their eyes if anyone were to check on them.
After he had told them his plans, he approached the guards and showed them the token that he had looted from the dead cultivators earlier.
The golden celestial at the entrance immediately said when he saw Yuan Ji. “Who are you? How come I have never saw you before? And who are these two maidens?”
Yuan Ji frowned unhappily, “Naturally they are my prisoners and I am bringing them inside to our First Citadel Lord.”
But the golden celestial and all the guards continued to stare at the two veiled maidens who were covered with a curtain veil.
Although they could not see their faces and their bodies due to the long curtain veil that was like a cloak but they could still somehow tell that these two maidens had an extraordinary air and were emanating an enticing vibes that were spellbinding to them.
Moreover these guards had been cultivating the dual cultivation profound art and they could feel that these two maidens were extremely juicy and were extremely good dual cultivation partners.
This was something that Yuan Ji had not thought of since he was not familiar with any of the dual cultivation profound arts.
The golden celestial looked beyond Yuan Ji as he smiled lecherously, “Our First Citadel Lord only needs maidens that are chaste. I wonder if these two maidens are still pure? If no, why don’t we have a little sharing and I can promise you that I will give you some benefits in the future.”
One of the guards shouted loudly, “Hey! Be smart and give our brother Celestial Huo some face!”
Celestial Huo smiled coldly at Yuan Ji, “This brother here, what is your name?”
Yuan Ji replied indifferently, “Li Yuan.”
“So Li Yuan, what do you think?” Celestial Huo grinned at him. “Take off their veils and let me have a look at them first.”
Yuan Ji immediately frowned, “These two are pure maidens so I don’t think you should touch them. Moreover, they are actually extremely ugly as well…”
But the guards had already surrounded Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue as they completely ignored Yuan Ji.
Before the guards could unveil the two maidens, these two maidens had already pulled their curtain veils against their shoulders to reveal their extraordinary beautiful features and their piercing golden eyes.
When the guards saw their golden eyes, they were so startled that they were staggering backward but at the same time they were also mesmerized by the astonishing beauty of the two maidens.
Before any of the guards could react, Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue had put them all down with their swords.
Even Celestial Huo had no idea what had happened when he had died.
All the nearby guards had become a happy ghost when they had died as they stared blankly at the two peerless beauties.
The guards that were inside the entrance were so alarmed that they were now shouting, “We have intruders! Sound the alarm!”
The alluring beauty of Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue when put together in the same place were so captivating that none of the nearby guards had any sense of danger even though the two maidens had already unsheathed their swords.
Yuan Ji was stunned when he saw how all these guards had fallen like useless trash. These guards are still thinking of banging my consorts even when swords have been drawn against them. This is too ridiculous. They have no sense of danger at all…
He turned to smile bitterly at the two maidens, “Do you have to draw your swords? Can’t you act like my prisoners?”
Xue Qianxue smiled, “We didn’t really kill them. They are just disabled and will be so for a long time. Why are you so jittering about? What do you expect us to do? They are trying to touch us and we’re only defending ourselves.”
Yuan Ji thought. They are obviously dead from your attacks…
Ling Feiyue giggled as she winked at Yuan Ji, “That’s right. Do you want them to green you?”
Xue Qianxue could not resist a chuckle after she had heard Ling Feiyue.
They had naturally learnt from Bai Qianfeng what had happened in the Dream Trial.
Yuan Ji rolled his eyes before muttering, “Because of what you have done, we have to double up on our actions now. You have now sounded the alarm and we have lost the element of surprise…”
All of a sudden the two maidens had purposely stepped on his foot as they walked past him as they said together. “Extremely ugly you say. Who’s the ugly one!”
Yuan Ji blinked his eyes. Don’t tell me that they are mad because I call them extremely ugly? Hey, this is only a ruse. Why are they so petty about this? Their ego is seriously too high…
As soon as Ling Feiyue had entered the entrance, she had immediately usurped the leadership position from Yuan Ji.
Her beautiful and gentle voice soon filled the great halls of the secret citadel, “Get all your high ranking cultivators to see me immediately or don’t blame me for razing your citadel to the ground.”
Her actions completely stunned Yuan Ji who was trying to surprise the enemy and even Xue Qianxue was also completely taken by surprise.
Although the alarm had been raised but Ling Feiyue had raised the alarm to another level by calling out loudly for the leaders.
As they stormed through the citadel and into the great halls of the citadel, they soon found themselves surrounded by over a hundred golden celestials and at least a thousand cultivators.
Yuan Ji immediately grumbled to Ling Feiyue, “Look what you have done. By alarming everyone, we have now found ourselves in this current situation.”
Ling Feiyue giggled softly and returned a nonchalant look.
Yuan Ji: …
Among the hundred over golden celestials, there were three seventh realm golden saints in their ranks and they were the citadel elders.
All the cultivators from the Evil Cultivation Palace were a little speechless when they saw that there were only three intruders and moreover two of the intruders were extremely peerless in their appearances; they were now causing all the male cultivators to look at them lecherously while the female cultivators were filled with envious looks.
One of the citadel elders said immediately as soon as he had entered the great hall, “Spare the maidens and kill the man.”
Yuan Ji frowned unhappily, “Shouldn’t you ask who we are first?”
The same citadel elder chuckled heartily, “No need. There is no need to know the name of a dead man.”
A female citadel elder and the only female among the three citadel elders immediately smiled, “No wait, I want the man. So who are you and what are your names?”
Yuan Ji cleared his throat to say, “Ahem, I’m Sword…”
But before he could finish, Ling Feiyue had said with her beautiful gentle voice. “I am the Demoness Ling Feiyue and I’ve come to demolish your nest. Release all your prisoners and leave this place or else I will put everyone to the sword!”
As she spoke, she had also displayed her profound golden animus fiercely, pronouncing herself as a great saintess.
Yuan Ji, Xue Qianxue: …
Yuan Ji sighed with great exasperation. Do you think that they will be afraid of you? We need more tact not foolish bravery…
Immediately the three citadel elders and many others had all taken a few steps backward.
The three citadel elders were all stammering, “You’re…Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue…the one that had dared to storm the Celestial Orthodox Sect…fight off the Seven Major Orthodox Clans…”
“Take all the prisoners…”
“As long as Great Saintess Ling Feiyue is willing to spare us, we will abandon this citadel immediately…”
“Then the other two must be Xue Qianxue and Sword Demon Ji Yuan?”
“I’ve heard that they are all Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue’s subordinates…”
“We’re just puny saints. Hope that Dark Mistress Ling will spare us from our great rudeness…”
“Even Sword Saintess Yuluo and the Great Saints of the two major orthodox clans are not able to kill them, what can we do to them?”
The three citadel elders were all initial saints and one of them was a half-step initial saint. Therefore when up against a great saintess like Ling Feiyue, they felt that a little intimidating. Moreover it was not just one great saintess but two!
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Ling Feiyue winked at Yuan Ji with an alluring smile, “See. Isn’t it easier this way?”
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji: …
Yuan Ji had never expected that the protégés of the Evil Cultivation Palace would be cowards. After all if they were to all attack together, they do have a winning chance. The Evil Cultivation Palace had many profound treasures and even divine profound arts that could increase their profound strength drastically in battle to fight a top expert.
Therefore he had taken into account of their combined fighting strength and decided that only by using tact would they succeed in their undertaking to free the prisoners. With some luck, they may even succeeded in killing off some of the top experts.
He had never expected that the citadel elders would give in to Ling Feiyue’s demands so readily.
Actually the three citadel elders know that they may stand a winning chance given their superior numbers. But they were really a little afraid of Ling Feiyue.
Firstly, she is not an orthodox cultivator and is an unorthodox cultivator that is not averse to killing anyone. So she is not definitely not bluffing them.
Secondly, she had a bold reputation at the Celestial Orthodox Sect where she fought off several top experts on her own that included the Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi and had even escaped unscathed. Even the many protégés of the Evil Cultivation Palace were impressed by what she had done.
Thirdly, Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue is the sect master of the Spirit Blue Moon Sect and it is highly unlikely that she may come alone.
The fourth and the last reason is the most important reason of all and is unspeakable; the three citadel elders are her secret fans after what she had done at the Celestial Orthodox Sect. So there.
Although they will be facing a severe punishment from First Citadel Lord Yin Wei for abandoning the citadel but losing to Ling Feiyue is not a disgraceful thing at all.
Many of the evil cultivators were now gasping among themselves, “It is really Ling Feiyue…so the other one must be Xue Qianxue…they are so beautiful…that man is also quite handsome…”
Yuan Ji asked awkwardly as he looked at the evil cultivators, “Is Little Princess here?”
The three citadel elders answered respectfully, “She had left this place a couple of days ago.”
Yuan Ji was immediately excited, “Where did she go to?”
“Erm, we really have no idea…”
When Yuan Ji had heard them, he was secretly disappointed.
