Chapter 152: The Dragon Cave (1)

All of a sudden Lu Yinxuan had appeared on top of a cliff and she had used her sword to slash furiously against the cliff with all her profound power; this caused several huge boulders that weight several tons to fall down the cliff below where Ji Yuan and Shui Qingqing were.

This caused an unfortunate seventh realm saintess of the Water Melody Palace to be crashed under a huge boulder instantly by a huge boulder, killing her instantly as her head got crashed.

Although a seventh realm cultivator is powerful in their profound power but no matter how a seventh realm cultivator is, the weight of these boulders falling upon them are impossible for them to destroy with their profound arts.

One must know that if a cultivator inherent strength can never exceed their body mass. When profound power is generated, it is not real strength. Although the cultivators may destroy boulders but it did not mean that they cannot be crushed by weights.

As Ji Yuan and Shui Qingqing saw the falling boulders, they quickly made their evasive maneuvers but because they were too near to the ledge of the mountains, they were quickly forced to roll down the mountains as hundreds of falling boulders began to rain down the cliff.

This is a mighty force that can kill any cultivators that are caught in its path!

As Ji Yuan fell down to the desolate mists below, he quickly displayed his lightless profound arts to evade the falling boulders while trying to keep to the edge of the mountain as much as possible.

Shui Qingqing was also doing the same as she descended like an agile feather down the desolate mists.

They were both somewhat surprised by each other’s astonishing lightless profound art.

After a while Ji Yuan spotted a ledge with his sharp eyes as he shouted to Shui Qingqing, “Move over here! There is a ledge!”

Shui Qingqing had almost given up and was regretful that she would lose her life today but when she had heard Ji Yuan, she quickly flipped herself multiple times in mid-air toward Ji Yuan’s direction.

Ji Yuan was the first one to reach the ledge while Shui Qingqing had missed the ledge as she was flipping blindly.

All of a sudden a strong hand had caught her right wrist and had pulled her up to the ledge; it was Ji Yuan.

Shui Qingqing was inhaling softly after she had landed weakly on the ledge. Her countenance was extremely pale after she had fallen from a great height and she dreaded to think of her fate if she were to fall into the bottomless desolate mists below.

She stammered, “Thank you…why did you save me?”

Ji Yuan grinned, “How do you know that I didn’t save you to do something funny to you?”

Shui Qingqing giggled, “A beardless old goat like you don’t have the guts to touch me.”

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Shui Qingqing inhaled softly before sighing heavily, “I didn’t think that the maiden that I had saved earlier will be so vicious. I guess that I had saved the wrong person.”

Ji Yuan asked her, “Your real intention is my celestial sword, am I right? After we have returned to the surface, I will give you another chance to fight with me but in the meantime, no fighting along the way up the desolate mists.”

“Who says I want your ugly sword? And who do you think I am?” Shui Qingqing was suddenly rebuking him.

Ji Yuan frowned, “Everyone will covet after a celestial sword. There is no exception.”

Shui Qingqing hummed coldly, “Then you have finally met one now. I am the exception.”

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

This maiden can lie without even battling her eyelids. Impressive…

Shui Qingqing was suddenly smiling. “So what is your name? Since you have saved me, I ought to remember your name.”

“Li Yuan.” He replied. He did not use Ji Yuan or Yuan Ji. It was because he had suddenly decided that both names would not be a good idea to use.

Shui Qingqing pondered for a while as she displayed a perplexed look. “I have never heard of this name before…you are definitely not a famous person…”

Yuan Ji smiled weakly, “Of course I am not as famous as the Palace Mistress of the Water Melody Palace.”

Shui Qingqing giggled, “Of course you aren’t.”

Yuan Ji: …

She is too shameless and thick skin…

He asked, “Why is the Palace Mistress of the Water Melody Palace here in these parts?”

Shui Qingqing said excitingly, “I am naturally here to check the mountains in these parts for the major orthodox clans. I have heard that they are going to attack the Spirit Blue Moon Sect so I am thinking of lending them a helping hand.”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “You are too righteous.”

Did she just tell me all her plans? She is too gullible…

Shui Qingqing was suddenly looking melancholy, “Actually I have heard that Ji Yuan is in the Spirit Blue Moon Sect now. So I want to come to take a look.”

Ji Yuan: …

Lucky I didn’t tell you that I’m Ji Yuan. Don’t tell me you wanna to kill me too? I can’t remember offending you…

“Did he offend you or something.” He asked weakly.

Shui Qingqing turned to him and sighed, “A beardless old goat like you won’t understand.”

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Isn’t that why I am asking you?

Then she had a faint smile as she averted her eyes shyly, “Do you know that Ji Yuan has the reputation of being the most beautiful bearded cultivator in the entire Desolate Celestial Fraternity?”

“Well, he is also Sword Demon Ji Yuan now and an enemy of the orthodox fraternity now.” Ji Yuan said with great sarcasm.

Shui Qingqing shot him a cold look, “Don’t you dare to insult Ji Yuan or we aren’t friends from this point onward.”

Ji Yuan: …

Are we even friends in the first place?

“I don’t believe that he will kill Sword Saintess Yuluo. After all, someone with such beautiful beard like him surely must have a good heart. Do you agree with me or not?” Shui Qingqing had a slight flush as she asked Ji Yuan.

Ji Yuan began to roll his eyes before saying bitterly, “You can’t judge a person by his beard.”

Shui Qingqing sounded a little angry, “That is because you are a beardless old goat and you are not even close to his league yet. That is why you are being envious of him.”

Ji Yuan smiled weakly. Yea right, I will be jealous of myself? I know that my beautiful beard is popular with the maidens but I didn’t know that even the Palace Mistress of the Water Melody Palace will also be infatuated with my beautiful beard. Alas! Now I am starting to miss my beautiful beard again…

But he quickly said, “I thought that you just say that you are here to help the major orthodox clans against the Spirit Blue Moon Sect but your idol is now at the Spirit Blue Moon Sect. So whose side are you on?”

Shui Qingqing replied without a single hesitation. “Naturally I am on the righteous side. As for Ji Yuan, I am sure that he may have some difficulties that he cannot share with anyone. Therefore I am going to ask him the reasons why and convince him to return to the righteous path. As long as he is willing to return to the righteous path, I will plead on his behalf to the major orthodox clans to give him a proper burial and ensure that his body is intact.”

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

“You are too nice.” Ji Yuan muttered weakly.

“Really?” Shui Qingqing was giggling. “What do you think that Ji Yuan first impression of me will be? I am actually quite nervous in meeting him for the first time.”

Ji Yuan rubbed his chin before he replied weakly, “He probably won’t have a good impression of you at all.”

“Hmph! Li Yuan, you beardless old goat. Are you envious of Ji Yuan?” Shui Qingqing hummed coldly as she stormed off.

Ji Yuan muttered weakly behind her, “I am only speaking the truth…”

“Hmph! Hmph! Hmph!” Shui Qingqing had overheard him and she was now ignoring him.

Ji Yuan said, “This ledge is quite narrow. Don’t move too hasty or you may fall down the cliff. If you do, I am afraid that I may not be able to save you a second time.”

“I don’t need you to save me!” Shui Qingqing replied coldly.

As Ji Yuan walked behind her, he was actually thinking. “So she is really uninterested in my celestial sword? I was half-expecting her to attack me earlier by creating so many openings for her but she never did. But she sure is gullible. She had actually told me all her plans…this must be the first time that she is traveling in the fraternity…”

Shui Qingqing was suddenly gasping, “Li Yuan, come over here! I’ve found a cave and this cave looks a little unusual.”

Ji Yuan was smiling bitterly. How can a cave be unusual? All caves look alike to him…

As Ji Yuan caught sight of the cave that was in front of him, he was a little startled. The entrance of the cave was shaped like the head of a monstrous dragon.

He muttered weakly with a sheepish look, “You are right. This cave does look a little unusual.”

All of a sudden a nine-tail spirit fox had jumped from the steep cliff above and upon Ji Yuan!

Shui Qingqing was startled when she saw the spirit fox. “Li Yuan! Watch out!”

Ji Yuan laughed as he caught hold of Bai Qianfeng. “It is alright. She’s my spirit fox.”

Bai Qianfeng was licking his fingers and she was cuddling herself in Ji Yuan’s embrace. I’m so glad that you are alright…

Shui Qingqing was startled, “This spirit fox is your contract spirit fox?”

Ji Yuan grinned. “Yea! She is the best!”
