Chapter 123: Goddess and Devil Envoys (1)

The banners of the dark celestial clans were flying all over the mountains of the Unmoving Mountains. That was because the dark celestial clans had already surrounded most of the mountains range in this area.

To an observer, it may look like the dark celestial clans had already seized control of the mountains.

Ye Jing together with Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, Li’Er, Chu Yunfeng, Luo Bihua, the Confession Lady and the Celestial Liege had already disguised themselves as the protégés of the Lofty Snow Palace and were all already at the steps of the heaven gates.

As there were thousands of people that had gathered at the steps, no one pay any attention to their little group.

Ye Jing muttered as she looked at great numbers of dark celestials that had gathered, “The dark celestials are so numerous…”

Gong Nanyan smiled, “Actually we are more numerous than them. It is just that we are all squeezed along the heaven steps.”

Ye Jing giggled softly as she pointed in front of her, “That is the Devil Envoy on her throne opposite us. She still has the mood to drink and that monstrous sword centipede looks just as terrible as before…”

Yu’Er chirped as she sat on her shoulder. Yu’Er had taken the guise of a red bird. This was the form that she was now accustomed to for the last several months.

In actuality, Ye Jing was actually quite nervous so she was trying to make light of the situation. It was because she knew that this battle would surely involve her. After all, she was the Goddess Envoy.”

Ye Jing looked around her, “Alas, what is taking Danfeng, Yuqing, Minyue so long to come. I have been standing here for an hour. No wonder they are always saying that the big players will always arrive at the very last.”

The Confession Lady smiled, “Jing’Er, you must be very nervous. You keep talking non-stop.”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “I’m not. Xiaofang must be more nervous than me.”

Xiaofang smiled bitterly, “I actually am.”

Ye Jing giggled softly, “See. Seeing how nervous he is, I am no longer nervous anymore.”

Chu Yunfeng sighed softly, “Actually I am also nervous. My legs are shaking now.”

Li’Er gave a weak smile as she took Chu Yunfeng’s arm, “Same here. We don’t know how the meet today will turn up. I am prepared for the worst. If I were to survive through all these, I…will marry you…”

Chu Yunfeng gave a broad smile, “Remember your promise!”

Xiaofang grinned, “Brother Yunfeng, let me congrats you first.”

Ye Jing had a startled expression in her eyes, “What have the two of you been doing recently? Your development is really fast.”

Chu Yunfeng laughed jovially, “This is called striking while the iron is hot…”

Li’Er quietly stomped her shoe on Chu Yunfeng’s foot as she said, “Well, it all depends on my mood. Maybe I will change my mind later. Or maybe I will fall in love with a new hero that has emerged from today’s battle.”

Chu Yunfeng: …

Luo Bihua was smiling warmly, “Brother Yunfeng and Sister Li’Er is really such a good match.”

In the meantime, the Devil Envoy was drinking wine while sitting in her throne seat and her throne seat was conveniently placed where she could see the heaven gates of the Ancient Ascension Sect. In this way, she could see anyone that was coming out or going in.

Xiao Shuai, Han Shaodong, Qi Meixue, Duan Yizong and all the other dark celestial leaders had all gathered as well. It was because they were having a square off with the patriarch clans.

She could already see that the forces that were gathered by the patriarch clans were numbered in the tens of thousands. When the main players of the patriarch clans arrived, then the confrontation would start.

She was smiling with amusement, “Three hundred righteous celestial clans versus one hundred dark celestial clans. Which side do you think will be able to win the battle today?”

Duan Yizong replied nervously, “Most of the celestials from the patriarch clans are weak. They can’t even stop us from reaching the Unmoving Mountains and along the way, we have won many battles.”

The Devil Envoy smiled as she looked at the five hundred leaders and elders of the dark celestial clans that were presented, “I have heard that more than four hundred golden celestials have already gathered at the Unmoving Mountains. And out of the four hundred golden celestials, there are more than ten saints as well.”

All the dark celestials were looking at one another nervously. Their side had only less than a hundred supremacies and golden celestials. The ones that were at the saint or monarch level were Qi Meixue, Xiao Shuai, Han Shaodong and the Devil Envoy.

Xiao Shuai and Han Shaodong could be considered a Great Saint while the Devil Envoy was a Great Monarch.

The main reason why they had a lower disparity was because it was a lot harder to cultivate as a true dark celestial. That was why more than half of the high level dark celestials were actually golden celestials.

Usually, a peaked dark monarch like the Devil Envoy was actually stronger than a peaked sacred saint.

That was also the reason why the Devil Envoy was able to command a frightening respect from them and that they were willing to follow her commands. Previously, it was Beitang Ze who had lorded over the three dark celestial domains and none of the dark celestials had dared to voice any objections.

Qi Meixue smiled weakly, “Since the Devil Envoy has gathered us here to do battle with the patriarch clans, I’m sure that we will be able to crush the patriarch clans like an ant. The recent defeat at the Nuer Mountains must have frightened the patriarch clans to the core that they are now mustering all their resources to fight us.”

A dark celestial leader also voiced out, “That’s right. For a long time, the patriarch clans have always been suppressing us. Finally we are able to turn the tables on them.”

Many of the dark celestials broke into incessant mutterings…

“If we are afraid of them, we shouldn’t be here today…”

“Afraid of them? Haha. I have fought in numerous battles and this is one fight that I will not miss…”

“I want to turn the sacred grounds of the Ancient Ascension Sect into a brothel for their women…”

“Without the Devil Envoy to lead us, we will still be hiding in our pathetic domains. The spiritual veins here are so rich and all these are now ours…”

A dark supremacy from a smaller heretic clan said aloud, “Why are we waiting here for? Let battle our way through now…”

Many of the dark celestials were combative in nature. It was because the majority of them practiced the killing or the malevolent path. In order to progress in these types of cultivations, fighting against a strong foe was the easiest way to progress for them.

The Devil Goddess smirked coldly, “Good. I see that everyone is determined here.”

Then she rose up and raised her divine sword, “This is not just an ordinary battle but a battle that will determine our future. Take courage and show our enemies what we are capable of doing.”

And the dark celestials were all shouting and roaring thunderously, shaking the entire mountain vicinity with their great shouts.

Xiao Shuai took a secret glance at Han Shaodong. The reason why they were with the Devil Isle was because the gods had promised to aid their ascension into immortals, fulfilling their last wishes to ascend. Although they were formidable great saints and great monarch but it was difficult to succeed in their ascension because previously they were all villains that had cumulated a lot of dark malevolent energies that would prove to be their own undoing should they forced their own ascensions.

But it seemed that lately his Brother Han Shaodong seemed to have second thoughts about his ascension and was spending more and more time with Qi Meixue…

He thought, “Brother, we may not survive our next heavenly tribulation should we stay in the celestial realm. We have already been here for almost six thousand years.”

The two of them had overcome a sixth stage lightning tribulation and therefore their lifespan in the celestial realm were determined to be between five to seven thousand years.

And time was now running short for them.

The Devil Envoy smiled all of a sudden, “They are finally here.”

All the dark celestials immediately unsheathed their weapons as they rallied their protégés, “Get into your formations!”

Column by column, the patriarch leaders and the leaders of the various celestial clans had walked from the top of the heaven gates and they had stopped mid-way. Leading them was Ascension Master Tie Nansen, Saintess Ziyue, Saint Dong Sheng, Saint Lin Wucheng and the sixteen golden celestials of the Ancient Ascension Sect.

Ye Jing quietly watched as the leaders and elders of the righteous celestial clans made their appearances. If she was still the Holy Consort then she would be among this column.

In her young heart, she was smiling quietly as she recognized many of the celestials in the column such as Yuan Chengzhi, Yun Xinghe, Zhou Hai, Yun Chen, Fan Yuqing, Feng Minyue, Xuan Danfeng, Su Shanyue, Tang Yiren and many others. These are the people that she had met in the past year and it seemed that she had known them for a long time…

Finally she looked quietly at Fan Yuqing and had a mixed feeling. It was because her premonitions were getting more and more frequent lately…

The Devil Envoy raised her beautiful eyelids with a smile, “Hmph, even Saintess Ziyue is here today. What a surprise. This is going to be very interesting.

Immediately she infused her martial strength into her voice to say gently, “Saintess Ziyue. I’ve thought that you will not dare to see me. Are you their champion today?”

Saintess Ziyue took a quick glance at Xuan Danfeng, Feng Minyue, Mu Huiyin, Xiaoyao Zi and all the celestial leaders who were behind her before she said with her martial voice, “Yes I am. It is unfortunate that we have to come to blows today.”

Lin Wucheng whispered to her, “Protégé mistress, you know her?”

Saintess Ziyue nodded lightly as she said, “Back then, when I was only a noob, she was already a dark monarch.”

Not only Lin Wucheng was startled but those nearby that could hear her were also startled.

Saintess Ziyue explained with a faint smile, “Like me, she is an ancient celestial.”

The Devil Envoy had rose and her martial voice filled the mountains, “The six months grace is over now and the Devil Isle is now proclaiming lordship over the entire Nine Celestial Fraternity. If you surrender peacefully then I will promise you that life will be as before. Failure to submit will mean your deaths.”

When she said that, there were great disdains among the righteous celestial clans and many were booing and jeering.

The Devil Envoy smiled and asked, “What do you say, Saintess Ziyue?”

Saintess Ziyue replied quietly yet her martial voice could be heard clearly by everyone, “Isn’t it obvious? We will definitely not surrender. As a matter of fact, we are already prepared to do battle with you.”

The Devil Envoy smiled coldly, “Since that is the wish of the righteous celestial clans then it shall be granted.”

Saintess Ziyue answered, “Before that, I will like to ask you something.”

The Devil Envoy replied, “Oh? What is it? If you’re going to ask me to spare the innocents then you can forget it.”

Saintess Ziyue smiled bitterly as she echoed her voice across, “You and me, we’re old acquaintances. In fact, you are a senior to me. Although you are a dark monarch but you are not reckless in your cultivation path. If not, you won’t be an ancient celestial of the Devil Isle. To be a protégé of one of the three celestial holy grounds say a lot about your cultivation accomplishments.”

With a soft sigh, she continued. “What I don’t understand is, six months ago the Devil Isle already has the chance to round up most of the patriarch leaders up when everyone is unprepared. What is the point of letting them go and then challenge us again on our home ground? You should know that we have six months of preparation and mentally we are all prepared for a battle. There won’t be any chivalries or small duels because none of us wants to be under the leadership of the Devil Isle.”

The Devil Envoy pointed at the leaders of the dark celestial clans and echoed back, “None you say? What about the dark celestial clans here?”

Saintess Ziyue answered gently, “The dark celestials have always respected the strong and are more willing to be grouped under a strong leadership, especially if that leadership is adamant in opposing the patriarch clans.”

The Devil Envoy smiled coldly, “That is because for many years now, the patriarch clans have been oppressing the many dark celestial clans. Most of the dark celestials here may be a little unorthodox in their celestial practice but that doesn’t mean that the patriarch clans can freely move into their domains to oppress them whenever you want to.”

When the Devil Envoy said that, many of the dark celestials were shouting in support for her. What she had said was only too true and the anguish in their hearts had been suppressed for far too long!

Saintess Ziyue said, “Regardless, you still haven’t answered my question yet.”

The Devil Envoy smiled coldly, “It is because the Devil Isle does not think that the patriarch clans will be a threat to our existence. Even if we want to rule over you, it is only for sports and to see how you will react under humiliation.”

When she had said that, the protégés of the righteous celestial clans broke out in great resentment and was moved to anger.

Even Ancestor Yuan had unsheathed his immortal sword and was shouting, “I am Yuan Xiong, the patriarch ancestor of the Divine Sovereign Clan. Do you dare to accept a challenge from this old man here?”

Ancestor Yuan was a peaked great saint and his martial prowess was not beneath Right Ascendant Custodian Dong Sheng of the Ancient Ascension Sect.

The Devil Envoy chuckled softly as she whirled her sword playfully, “Hmph! Are you even fit to challenge me? You are only fit to challenge Xiao Shuai and Han Shaodong.”

Ancestor Yuan roared with laughter, “So you are scare? If I am not fit to challenge you then who are?”

Xuan Danfeng secretly whispered to Feng Minyue and Fan Yuqing, “This…this isn’t going to turn up good…”

Feng Minyue nodded lightly while Fan Yuqing looked slightly amused but she was secretly looking around for Ye Jing…

The Devil Envoy smiled wryly, “None of you are, as a matter of fact. My only opponent will be the Goddess Envoy from the Goddess Palace. Ye Jing where are you? I know you are hiding somewhere. Are you still thinking of hiding?”

There were commotions among the many celestials as they were all looking around…

“Ye Jing is here?”

“The Demoness Ye Jing is among us? Where is she?”

“The Goddess Envoy will not dare to come…”

“What does she mean that her only opponent is the Goddess Envoy? We’re not even fit to be her opponents?! This is too infuriating…”

Ye Jing gently rubbed Xiaofang’s hand and took a forlorn look at him. At the same time she was also grasping Gong Nanyan’s fingers warmly…

“Don’t follow me. This is my battle alone…”

With a soft sigh, she had flashed down to the steps of the heaven gates and took off her hood…

Everyone was gasping at the sight of this wondrous heavenly maiden. It was because many of the celestials had not seen her before and did not know what she had looked like.

“She is Ye Jing?”

“She is so beautiful…”

“She used to be the Holy Consort of the Holy Citadel City and also a patriarch leader…”

“Why did she turn against us?”

“I find it hard to believe that she is able to ransack so many celestial clans…”

“Are you able to feel her aura? She is a saintess?”

“Ye Jing is actually hiding among us?!”

Ye Jing gave a weak smile as she looked at the Devil Envoy, “Goddess Envoy Ye Jing is here.”

The Devil Envoy smiled, “Should I call you Great Saintess Ye Jing now? Your advancement is really swift. Good. You are worthy of being a Goddess Envoy as well as my opponent.”

There were more reactions from the celestials as they stared at in disbelief at her…

“She is a great saintess?! How is that possible?”

“She is only 22…”

“This has become a duel between the Devil Isle and the Goddess Palace?”

Yuan Chengzhi was startled. It was because when he had first known Ye Jing, she was only an immortal celestial. Since then she had swiftly elevated as a golden celestial. Just three months ago, she was still a golden celestial and now she was a great saintess? This was too astonishing to him.

Even Yun Xinghe was rubbing his eyes and so were Yun Chen, Zhou Hai, Tang Yiren and many others that knew her.

Xuan Danfeng was smiling weakly and thinking, “If they know that Ye Jing has undergone the nine-stage lightning tribulation then they will surely spurt blood.”

But secretly she was worried. It was because she knew that Ye Jing had not recovered from her lightning tribulation yet. As a matter of fact, even Tang Yiren, Lin Wucheng, Fan Yuqing and including her were all still recovering from the lightning tribulation.

She had never expected that Ye Jing would be brave enough to answer to the Devil Envoy’s challenge…

Chapter 122: The Unknown Visitor (2)

Fan Yuqing had flashed quietly to the courtyard that was outside.

If anyone were to walk into the courtyard, they would surely fail to notice that an extremely alluring lady was standing in a corner. It was because she had perfectly blended into the surrounding and her state of divinity was so profound that most would not be able to notice her.

But not Fan Yuqing.

It was because no matter how hard this extremely alluring lady could hide her aura or her presence, it could not severe the familiar bond that was between them.

As Fan Yuqing approached her, she was trembling and in the next moment she had kneeled down humbly. “Mother, your unfilial child is here…”

The extremely alluring lady was the Great Goddess Fantian herself. She had secretly descended onto the celestial realm…

She quickly tried to lift Fan Yuqing from her feet but she refused to get up, “Child, please rise. Why are you treating your mother like a stranger?”

Fan Yuqing had actually only seen her mother for a few times during her entire lifetime. She was actually raised up by her Uncle Huan and Aunt Ye.

She bit her lips and said softly, “I…know that I have disappointed you greatly. If you are here, it means that you have known what I have been doing…”

The Great Goddess Fantian lifted her up and embraced her warmly, “We should be the ones that are sorry to you.”

Fan Yuqing shook her head lightly as she trembled, “I’ve tried to live up to your expectations but failed. How is father? Is he back from the Desolate Realm?”

The Great Goddess Fantian nodded gently, “Yes, he is well. He is already back to the immortal realm for some time now. We…thought that you are gone from us forever. Child, come back alright?”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “I have no real home. Even if I were to return to Tranquil City, you are not there. I can’t go to the immortal realm just yet. But even if I were to go to the immortal realm, will you be there?”

The Great Goddess Fantian was quiet. It was because her daughter’s words had struck her heart painfully. It was true that she may not stay in the immortal realm for too long either.

Fan Yuqing smiled faintly, “I will like to explore the celestial realm while I have the time here. After all, this is my true home and it is where I was born. I have also got a new god-mother.”

The Great Goddess Fantian asked curiously, “Who is she?”

Fan Yuqing smiled, “Great Saintess Ziyue. Have you heard of her?”

The Great Goddess Fantian slowly nodded, “She is a good person. I have met her a couple of times in the past before I regain my divine body. She is a terribly shy person.”

Fan Yuqing gave a faint smile, “No wonder she is able to sense some familiarity from me. Shy as in, she likes my father but keep quiet about it, am I right?”

The Great Goddess Fantian smiled gently, “Your father the Great God Pangu or rather Yi Ping is such a popular person.” All of a sudden her eyes moved quickly as she said, “It seems that your friends are here. They are quietly watching us…”

Fan Yuqing cursed softly, “They are such busybodies. I told them not to come after me and yet…”

The Goddess Fantian smiled gently, “It is good that you have friends now.”

Fan Yuqing cursed softly, “They are courting their own deaths. They didn’t know that mother consort can hear them from afar.”

The Goddess Fantian smiled gently, “It is alright. They don’t seem to have any ill-intentions.” Then she said, “It seems that you have the Primordial Heaven Chart and the Tranquil Flute now. Make full use of it. What is your Icy Heavenly Tears staging now like?”

Fan Yuqing smiled, “Almost the tenth level now but somehow, I have failed to grasp the absolute defense skill.”

The Great Goddess Fantian nodded, “It is not bad already. There is actually a flaw with the Icy Heavenly Tears. It is good that you didn’t forcefully try to breakthrough to it. It is time for you to pick up the Eternal Heavenly Tears. I am going to display it in your mind.” A sigil appeared on her head as she gently tapped Fan Yuqing’s forehead with her fingers…

Ye Jing, Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan and Feng Minyue were all secretly watching at a secret spot.

Ye Jing asked, “I’ve thought that Yuqin is beautiful enough but that maiden is even more beautiful. And why is she kneeling in front of her? Surely Yuqin will never humble herself in anyone presence…”

Feng Minyue whispered, “Sister Jing, it is already bad that we are here. But you ought to be quiet in case we will be discovered. Sister Yuqing will not like it if she knows that we are eavesdropping.”

Xiaofang said, “That maiden has a divine presence around her. It is likely that she is a saintess or even more. I have never seen a lady with such a gentle disposition as her.”

Gong Nanyan nodded as she agreed with Xiaofang, “I agree. Such a noble and refine lady.” Then she commented, “Look, now Yuqing has got up and is in her embrace. They are actually quite close? I really wonder if she is a friend or foe? What is her cultivation level?”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “I try to see her cultivation level but her spiritual sea seems so limitless. I can’t tell her true boundaries. I have almost drowned in her spiritual sea…”

Xiaofang said, “She seems to be able to blend in with the surrounding. I can’t sense her breathing or heartbeat…”

Ye Jing asked, “Do you think that she is Fan Yuqing’s mother?”

Everyone was startled as they looked at her…

Ye Jing whispered, “Look. They share the same resemblances. If they are not blood kin then I would really be very surprised.”

Xiaofang nodded, “Now that you have mentioned it. Yes, they do share a lot of similarities…”

Gong Nanyan asked, “Since we are unable to tell her cultivation level, she may be higher than us. Do you think that she knows that we are peeking?”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Probably…”

Feng Minyue was startled, “This…alas…I shouldn’t have agreed to let you out. If Sister Yuqing knows what we have done, she will be unhappy with us.”

Ye Jing giggled softly as she winked her eyes at everyone, “Probably just unhappy with only me. Well, what done has already done.”

Xiaofang was curiously observing as he tried to move a little closer, “I wonder what they are discussing?”

Suddenly Gong Nanyan tapped his shoulder and smiled weakly, “Just because she is pretty doesn’t mean you can get too close to her, am I right?”

Xiaofang replied awkwardly, “Erm, I am only curious to take a closer look. I can’t really see her face…”

Ye Jing said weakly, “Actually none of us can. Her countenance is too bright. The closer you go, the more you can’t see her face. After looking at her for just a while, I am now having sun spots in my eyes.”

Gong Nanyan was startled, “I thought that it is just me. Do you think that she is an immortal?”

Xiaofang was startled, “An immortal that can descend to the celestial realm? She must really be a powerful immortal.”

Feng Minyue was muttering, “Sister Yuqing is talking to an immortal now? Is it possible?”

She looked at Ye Jing and asked, “Do you know who Sister Yuqing’s parents are?”

Ye Jing nodded, “But I’m not going to tell you or anyone.”

Everyone: …

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Why are you all looking at me like this?” This was Fan Yuqing’s personal secret and she had promised the Confession Lady not to tell anyone.

Quietly Ye Jing had already returned her attention to the extremely alluring lady as she thought, “So this is what the Great Goddess Fantian looks like?”

She now saw that the extremely alluring lady had suddenly tapped Fan Yuqin gently on her forehead and was whispering something to her.

After a while the extremely alluring lady gave a gentle smile and had departed in a flash, leaving Fan Yuqing to stare in the blank air…

Ye Jing whispered, “Let’s go before we’re discovered…”

Just when everyone was nodding and agreeing, Fan Yuqing said coldly. “I have asked all of you to stay inside the room and why are you here?”

Ye Jing smiled awkwardly as she pushed Xiaofang out, “He wants to take a look…”

Gong Nanyan, Feng Minyue: …

Xiaofang smiled weakly as he looked at Ye Jing before looking at Fan Yuqing, “Erm…that’s right. I am just curious. I’m sorry…”

Fan Yuqing did not say anything and instead she walked out of the courtyard…

Ye Jing asked, “Is she angry? She is angry with Xiaofang?”

Feng Minyue looked panicky as she said anxiously, “Let me go and talk to her first…”

Ye Jing looked at Xiaofang with a soft sigh, “It is all your fault Xiaofang.”

Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan: …

Xiaofang panicky said, “Let me go and take a look as well…”

Soon Feng Minyue and Xiaofang had caught up with Fan Yuqing.

Xiaofang quickly apologized to her, “Saintess Yuqing, I…sorry…it is all my entire fault for…”

Fan Yuqing paused in her tracks and smiled gently, “What for? I know it is all Ye Jing’s idea.”

Xiaofang refused to admit that it was Ye Jing who was the instigator and said, “No, it is not her fault…”

Fan Yuqing looked at them and smiled shyly, “I’m not upset. I just want to be left alone for a while. I…am just…shy…after you have seen me like this.”

Feng Minyue asked, “That lady is…”

Fan Yuqing answered with a soft sigh, “That is my mother consort.”

Then she looked queerly at Xiaofang and said with a solemn tone, “Xiaofang, will you forgive me if I were to kill Ye Jing one day?”

Xiaofang smiled grinned, “That won’t happen. You and her are best friends now.”

Fan Yuqing looked away as she looked at the heavens, “Is that so…”

“Child, because you have intervened and helped Ye Jing, now there are dire consequences. You may not know this but you have indirectly affected the dark descendant. It is because you are a half-divine. If you want to rectify it then you may have to kill her…” This was the last words of her mother consort and it now weighed heavily in her heart.

Chapter 121: The Unknown Visitor (1)

Ye Jing, Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, Fan Yuqing and Feng Minyue had gathered in their usual meeting room to discuss their next course of action against the Devil Isle. The dark celestial clans that were led by the Devil Isle had already reached the Unmoving Mountains and they were just camping outside.

Beitang Ying was not around as she was not from Fan Yuqing inner circle of friends. Instead, the ‘Devil Goddess’ had sent her to scout on the more recent activities of the Devil Isle. This time round, Fan Yuqing had sent Yun Chen to go along with her in order to ensure her safety.

Fan Yuqing gave a soft frown as she looked at Gong Nanyan and Ye Jing, “So where is Xuan Danfeng?”

Gong Nanyan had a small flush as she replied shyly, “She isn’t feeling too well. I will represent her and act on her behalf.”

There was disbelief in Fan Yuqing’s eyes as she said with an amused smile, “Will a golden celestial be sick? Moreover she is a great saintess now.”

Gong Nanyan could only smile weakly as she lowered her eyes while Ye Jing was giggling as she looked at Xiaofang…

Actually the whole lot of them knew what had happened as bad news spread fast. Xuan Danfeng had totally embarrassed herself in front of Xiaofang. When she had regained her wits the next day, she had realized that Xiaofang had seen all that could be seen. Therefore she was trying her best to avoid Xiaofang and everyone for the next couple of days…

Fan Yuqing laughed softly, “Serve her right for drinking so much. She is lucky that Nanyan and Xiaofang are around that night if not, her embarrassment would be more than this.”

Gong Nanyan said softly, “Can we go straight to the more important discussions? My protégé mistress is already feeling horrible about what happened.”

Xiaofang was flustered as he said, “That’s right…”

Fan Yuqing continued to laugh softly as a tear brimmed from her eyes, “Xiaofang, you must have quite a feast with your eyes that night. Even I have to admit that Danfeng has an enviable body…”

Gong Nanyan sighed softly, “Saintess Yuqing, although you are the one that has helped my protégé mistress to overcome her lightning tribulation but…”

Fan Yuqing giggled, “But what? Look at Ye Jing. She is also laughing at the corner. Danfeng is my sister, I can laugh at her whenever I like.”

Ye Jing chuckled softly, “Eh? I didn’t laugh. I was…erm…” Then she looked at Xiaofang and giggled, “I was…laughing at Xiaofang. He looks so silly today…”

Xiaofang: …

All of a sudden Fan Yuqing had leaned towards Xiaofang as she said, “You know. Even for me, I may need more than a hundred strokes against Liang Ni in order to gain an upper hand and there is no guarantee that I may possibly win. How did you accomplish this feat so easily?”

Xiaofang was flushing when Fan Yuqing had suddenly leaned against him and he could even feel her breathing on his face. But he quickly composed himself and gave a smile, “Liang Ni didn’t have a chance against my immortal sword. I don’t think he is expecting an opponent with an immortal sword to suddenly show up. Maybe that’s why.”

Fan Yuqing nodded with a smile, “Your immortal sword is thrice as powerful as the strongest divine sword. Even his invulnerable body wouldn’t withstand a chance against your sword should you decide to use all your strength. An heaven-step immortal sword with its full full sanctum power that is awakened. Even I don’t wish to fight you when you have such a sword in your hands, especially a sword that has the eight element array as its unique ability.”

Ye Jing was frowning, “How come my immortal sword isn’t as good as yours?”

Fan Yuqing chuckled, “Don’t be greedy Ye Jing. Your immortal sword has its own strength and uniqueness. I should be the one that is envious instead.”

Feng Minyue was smiling too as she said, “Alright everyone. Let’s get on with our real business. Why don’t I brief everyone instead? Yesterday, there was an envoy from the Devil Isle and a challenge was issued to the patriarch clans to meet the Devil Isle outside the heaven gates. After a short but heated debate, the patriarch clans have agreed to meet the challenge.”

Ye Jing asked, “So there will most probably be a battle tomorrow? Why don’t the patriarch clans wait for them here? After all, the defenses here are really so formidable.”

Feng Minyue smiled, “Although it is advantageous to wait it out here but the advantage isn’t so great when the dark celestials have the entire Unmoving Mountains surrounded. If we can wait it out here so can they. Moreover we have the advantages of numbers here. In an open fight, it is unlikely that we will lose. There are Saint Ancestor Yuan and his immortal sword, Saintess Ziyue, Saint Dong Sheng and many other celestial experts.”

Ye Jing was sighing softly as though she knew what was coming.

Feng Minyue continued, “A life and death battle will probably take place. So it is better for Sister Saintess Yuqing and Sister Saintess Jing not to go. The two of you have not fully recovered your strength yet.”

Ye Jing began to grow solemn as she sighed softly, “I have to go. The heavenly decree has already told me to confront the Devil Envoy tomorrow. I…I may need to fight her…”

Xiaofang and Yuqing were shocked.

Fan Yuqing said, “You can’t be serious? Do you know that the Devil Envoy is a class above you? You have better hide here while I take your place.”

Ye Jing lowered her glances as she said firmly, “No. This is my battle alone. As the Goddess Envoy, I can’t avoid the Devil Isle anyway.”

Feng Minyue said weakly, “The minute that you show up, you will be butchered by the patriarch clans first. I really don’t advise you to go. Please listen to me, alright?”

Ye Jing smiled weakly as she looked at Xiaofang and Gong Nanyan, “I know…Xiaofang and Nanyan, because of me, you are in hiding as well. Stay here tomorrow…”

Xiaofang stood up and said firmly, “Jing’Er, I am sorry. I can’t do that. Your battle is my battle as well.”

Gong Nanyan nodded and said with a strong conviction, “Sister Jing, I actually don’t expect a happy ending with Xiaofang so please allow me to join you.”

Ye Jing smiled bitterly, “All of you…are so crazy…”

All of a sudden Ye Jing was startled by a presence that was from the outside and just as she was about to say something, Fan Yuqing had suddenly stood up all of a sudden as she said nervously, “Everyone, stay here in this room and please don’t go out. Ye Jing, you better stay here and please don’t come after me. Xiaofang and Minyue, keep a watch over her.”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Even if I want to go, I don’t have the strength.” Then she said solemnly, “Sister Yuqing, be careful. That is a super exponent…”

“Don’t worry. I will be alright…” And Fan Yuqing had already bolted out of the room.

Xiaofang was looking at Ye Jing, “There is someone out there? Why can’t I sense anyone?”

Gong Nanyan said quietly, “Same here as well…”

Feng Minyue was anxious for Fan Yuqing as she muttered, “Sister Saintess Yuqing looked really tense. Will she really be alright?”

Ye Jing managed a weak smile as she looked at everyone, “Why don’t we go and have a quick look?”

Feng Minyue, Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan: …

Feng Minyue frowned softly, “Did you just promise that you will be staying in the room?”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Did I make any promise? I just say that I didn’t have the strength to fight that super exponent.”

“……”

Chapter 120: Conference of the Gods

Somewhere in an immortal palace that floated invisible between the celestial realm and the immortal realm, were the watchers of the celestial realm. These watchers of the celestial realms were the patron goddesses of the three holy grounds of the Nine Celestial Fraternity which were the Goddess Palace, the Devil Isle and the Melancholy Valley.

The watchers were all goddesses of the immortal realm and many of them were even the heavenly queens of one of the thirty-three heavens of the immortal realms.

But regardless of their factions or rivalries, these goddesses that numbered some twenty were now happily playing a card game with one another in several big groups. Their beautiful countenances were all focused on winning the card game while they chatted nosily with one another.

All of a sudden a young looking handsome immortal and a beautiful goddess had walked into the hall. When the handsome immortal saw the scene that was in front of him, he was growling with displeasure.

Immediately all the goddesses turned ashen as they quickly kept the cards that they were holding into their sleeves…

The handsome immortal said unhappily, “What are you all doing? Aren’t you supposed to be coming up with a plan to reverse the Dark Descendant? Is this your so call plan?”

The handsome immortal was the Great God Pangu and the beautiful goddess that was with him was the Great Goddess Fantian.

The Heaveness smiled weakly, “We have found an interesting card game that is quite popular in the celestial realm. You should really try. It is not only a strategy game but it is also quite fun. We…are…seeking inspiration from it.”

The Great God Pangu growled with suspicion, “Six months ago, the Devil Isle has screwed up terribly and made a premature attack. How can such a mistake be made?”

Dugu Yunzi who was one of the patron goddesses of the Devil Isle took a glance at Xiao Youxue who held the same position as her before she smiled, “There are some miscommunications between us and our envoys. The first part of the plan was to purge the detestable Scarlet Heretic Sect. Our envoys thought that the plan had started hence that’s why.”

The Goddess Isa was laughing jovially as she took a knowing glance at the Ascension Goddess and the Fiery Phoenix Goddess, “It is so silly to make such a mistake. How can the immortal realm trust the cultivation methods of the Devil Isle will be the better one that is more beneficent for the celestials? I say, let’s just use the cultivation methods of the Goddess Palace…”

Xiao Youxue interrupted coldly as she took a glance at the Joyful Goddess, “Obviously we won’t be giving in again. Isn’t that why we are having a contest for that right in the first place? Minus the Melancholy Valley of course.”

The Joyful Goddess Lele chuckled softly as she shrugged Lie Qing a Great Goddess of the Melancholy Valley who was sitting next to her, “Hey, don’t look at me like this. I don’t mind really. The cultivation method of the Melancholy Valley is as good as it gets. The whole lots of you are just improvising upon my cultivation methods. That is really lame.”

Almost immediately, there was loud bickering in the hall as each of the goddess began to argue why their cultivation methods were the better…

The Sagess Aiel and Fairy Han Lin were two of the lowest rank goddesses of the Goddess Palace and also among all the goddesses here. But it did not stop them from chatting and bickering with each other nonstop. It was as though they were not concerned at all. Why should they? The other patron goddesses of the Melancholy Valley were more formidable than them and moreover the Melancholy Valley had already lost their divine right to the heavenly decrees.

The Great God Pangu smiled weakly as he stole a glance at the Great Goddess Fantian as he said, “It seems that only the Great Goddess Alice is able to handle them. Unfortunately she isn’t here.”

“Who says I am not around?”

An extremely beautiful goddess with long golden hair that reached her thigh had walked in with a mesmerizing smile. She was none other than the Great Goddess Alice. In her presence, the rest of the goddesses quickly stop their bickering lest they incurred her wrath. Even the Sagess Aiel was suddenly quietly. It was because she was most afraid of the Great Goddess Alice, who was once the ruler of the immortal realm.

The Goddess Isa who had always considered Alice to be her greatest rival smiled wryly, “So it is the Great Goddess Alice. I wonder what brings you here today.”

The Great Goddess Alice smiled amicably, “I am just a little busybody today. I know that all of you are attending a meet here to discuss the future of the celestial realm.”

Then she laughed, “I’ve heard that the goddesses of the Goddess Palaces and the Devil Isle are pitting against each other and the rivalries are…fierce.”

The Goddess Isa laughed, “Why? Are you thinking of using your position as the patron goddess of the Goddess Palace to aid us?”

Immediately there were several displeasure coming from the goddesses of the Devil Isle.

The Great Goddess Alice smiled, “I dare not lest the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa and the other desolate goddesses of the Devil Isle decide to intervene.”

Like the Great Goddess Alice, the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa was also at the Ninth Immortal Positioning. Only the Great God Pangu and the Great Goddess Fantian were higher, having attain to the Tenth Immortal Positioning.

“Actually I have come here to inform you that Yi Si had already ascended to the immortal realm and she is staying in my palace now.”

The Joyful Goddess was startled, “My daughter has ascended to the immortal realm finally? And she is a great goddess?”

The Great Goddess Alice smiled, “Her immortal cultivation level is pretty strong. She is already at the fifth immortal positioning when she ascended.”

The Sagess Aiel muttered, “I’m only at the fourth…”

Han Lin laughed softly, “That is why you are still a Sagess and not a Goddess…”

Even the Great God Pangu was surprised, “Yi Si is here…with her status as a goddess, I’m going to appoint her as a heavenly queen…”

Xiao Youxue smiled, “Not only Yi Si. We’ve actually found Yuqin as well. She is still alive. She is the one that screws up the Devil Isle.”

The Great Goddess Fantian gasped softly and she was trembling. Her one and only daughter was still alive?!

The Great God Pangu blurted out, “Why didn’t you say so earlier?!”

Xiao Youxue replied with a coyly expression, “You look so fierce when you first enter the hall. We didn’t have the chance to tell you. They all know as well. Why are you blaming only the Devil Isle?”

The Heaveness and the Goddess Isa quickly said as they looked extremely sheepish, “We’ve only just known as well.”

The Heaveness said, “Do you remember that two hundred years old, there was a Golden Mask Devil Goddess? That is actually her. She has re-appeared again using the same alias but she has changed her name to Yuqing instead of Yuqin.”

The Great God Pangu looked a little shaky, “No wonder our divine calculations are always off. Recently the nine-stage lightning tribulation had suddenly appeared and we are all wondering why. She is half a divine being and not a celestial, don’t she knows that she can’t intervene or there will be divine consequences?”

The Great Goddess Fantian looked forlornly at him, “You can’t say that. She doesn’t know that. You are not a good father. We’re not good parents and only see her once every few years. We need to make amends to her…”

The Great God Pangu sighed softly. For many years, he had been busy pacifying the Desolate Realm. Although two third of the desolate immortals had already been pacified but there was still a third of them that were waging a war with the immortals of the immortal realm.

Xiao Youxue smiled as she looked at him, “I know that she is your precious child. That is why I’ve asked my Devil Envoy to stay her hands for the time being. However time is running short now. It seems that she is in the company of the Goddess Palace now. This is making our side very difficult. Don’t you think so? ”

The Ascension Goddess said haughtily, “Do you think that in the first place that the Devil Isle stands a chance to storm the Ancient Ascension Sect? I have heard that the patriarch clans have setup plenty of formidable arrays.”

Xiao Youxue smiled, “Well, it is better than the Goddess Palace that sneaks around in the background and trying to reap the benefits. Although we have given you a lead of six months due to our mistake but what have you accomplished during the past six months?”

The Ascension Goddess folded her arms and returned a faint smile, “We did attract all the celestial experts to gather at the Unmoving Mountains and it is quite successful.”

Dugu Yunzi smiled, “It is more like you gather all the angry mobs. Say, I have heard that there is a Dugu Fang that is making quite a big stir below. But why is my bloodline fighting on your side? I think we need to have a small correction…”

The Heaveness smiled alluringly, “Sister Yunzi, did you forget that you can’t intervene directly? It is not that I am taking sides…”

Dugu Yunzi was smiling, “It is obvious that the Melancholy Valley and the Goddess Palace are in conspiracy with each other. Isn’t this Ye Jing your celestial disciple? And now she is fighting for the Goddess Palace?”

The Heaveness smiled wryly, “It is not what you think. When I had accepted her as my successor, I did not know that she will join the Goddess Palace later. You must know that anyone that can ascend to the Heavenly Temple is the future daughter of the heavens. This is a fact that the even the Great God Pangu is aware of.”

The goddesses of the Goddess Palace and the Melancholy Valley were all giggling while the goddesses of the Devil Isle were all frowning. It was obvious that none of the goddesses from the Devil Isle were actually buying anything from the sly words of the other two holy places.

The Great God Pangu thought that the bickering seemed to have grown out of control so he quickly said, “Don’t forget that this is not a battle to kill the celestials, no matter which side they are on. I have heard that the Devil Isle is really overdoing it.”

Dugu Yunzi lowered her glances and said, “Don’t you trust Youxue and I? We are the best tacticians in the immortal realm. This is the only way to gather all the dark supremacies and monarchs to the Unmoving Mountains. If it is not for your dear precious daughter Yuqin, we would have already got the remnants of the high level dark celestials that are from the domain of the Scarlet Heretic Sect to the Unmoving Mountains by now.”

The Great God Pangu smiled awkwardly, “I do trust you, Yunzi…”

Then he said quietly, “It is time that we let the true Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth to descend on the Unmoving Mountains…”

Chapter 119: Liang Ni True Colors

<Mature content warning>

Liang Ni was in his room and he was banging a petite young celestial; she was sweating profusely and was drooling with pleasures. As for which clan that she was from and her name, he had already forgotten. This was not going to be an issue with him anyway. In a few more days, he would have drained all of her yin essences and dumped her. She was as a matter of fact his second victim.

At the moment, the petite young celestial was experiencing great pleasure and was in heaven as Liang Ni banged her behind while squeezing her perky swollen breasts.

It was easy for Liang Ni had picked her because there were many female cultivators that had wanted to hook up to him just because he was a golden celestial. By knowing him, they would have received immerse benefits and a connection in the future. But this petite cultivator did not know that Liang Ni was actually draining her vitality and wasting her cultivation core. She had only known that for the past two days, she was in heavens and she did not even want to leave his bed for even a moment. She just wanted to experience pleasures after pleasures.

Liang Ni had a dark secret. His Thirteen Extreme Body Tempering Martials had a secret fourteen cultivation art and that was to drain the yin essences of the female cultivators. He had been careful not to let Mu Huiyin knew about it for she hated the dark cultivators. But still, that did not stop him from secretly using it on her. The yin essence of a saintess was indeed nourishing for him and he just needed a little each day.

But once Mu Huiyin had refused to see him, he was forced to look around for replacements. He had quickly found one in a matter of days and the poor female cultivator did not even know how she had died. Now he had found his second target.

These two female cultivators may be inner court protégés but their cultivation level was only at the Enlighten Celestial level and was too weak to nourish him fully.

Two days earlier, the petite cultivator had chanced upon Liang Ni and after a quick chat, she was delighted that Liang Ni had offered to improve her cultivation level.

Liang Ni was now quite famous or rather infamous. Even this petite cultivator had heard that there were two saintess that were fighting over him. Therefore she was quite flattered that he had an eye for her.

But what she did not expected was that for the next two days, she found herself wishing that she could be with Liang Ni forever. She had totally forgotten who she was and where she was from. Even until now, she did not think that she would be this bold and so carnal in her desires but there were no regrets in her eyes.

Liang Ni thoughts were however more warped. He was just bent on draining her yin essence and lamenting that this petite cultivator’s yin essence was too impure and too little. As he happily refreshed to the scene that day when he touched Saintess Yuqing’s butt, his experienced hands could immediately feel that she did not have her panties on and he was aroused from touching her curved and soft…

When he had refreshed to this point, he was banging the petite cultivator so hard that she was moaning and screaming as he ripped through to her. Suddenly she had stopped moaning and was foaming as her pupils turned white…

Liang Ni sighed pitifully, “She is dead so fast. I’ve thought that she may last another two more days.”

Now he had to look for another.

He smiled bitterly when he had thought of Saintess Yuqing. Until now, she was still so elusive and he could not lay his hands on her.

“It is so pointless to look for low level cultivators to nourish my cultivation art…all the remaining saintess are so formidable…”

All of a sudden he was smiling wickedly. “Didn’t Xuan Danfeng just overcome her lightning tribulation just a day ago?” He was thinking that it was not possible for her to regain her strength so quickly and she was an easy target for him to aim for. Moreover she looked like a slut and he wondered how flirty she would be when they copulated.

Smiling to himself, Liang Ni had already decided who his next target was now…

Therefore he quickly wrapped the dead maiden in a blanket before throwing her down the misty cliffs below.

He was not afraid at all. Although he was only a peaked golden celestial but his strength was equivalent to an intermediate sacred saint.

Therefore he had decided to make his move this very night, which was now.

It did not take him long to reach the guest palace that was used to host the Lofty Snow Palace and her allies.

It was not difficult to identify which were the buildings that were used by the protégés of the Lofty Snow Palace. As the top tier celestial clan among the twenty celestial clans that were there, the place that emanated the strongest celestial aura was obviously where the protégés of the Lofty Snow Palace was.

He got lucky.

Because the first person that he saw in the inner courts was Xuan Danfeng and she was alone. She was walking in a tipsy manner, having just finished attending the banquet that was held in her honor.

When Liang Ni caught sight of her, he was immediately aroused for she was dressed in a revealing and flimsy dress. The front of her cleavages was exposed and the gown had openings that revealed her silky white thighs.

Just the thought of banging this number one socialite already made him hard and he silently made his way to her back view…

Xuan Danfeng was still tipsy as she muttered almost incoherently, “Where am I? Why…did I…come to Ye Jing’s place…”

All of a sudden a big towering masked man had violently struck her on her back and he had violently torn her gown from her body, stripping her completely naked.

Liang Ni was pleasantly pleased that other than the gown that he had just grabbed, there was nothing else that was on Xuan Danfeng and he had a good view of her body.

Xuan Danfeng coughed out weakly after she had been attacked but that did not stop her from retaliating as she quickly made a quick turn and dished out a strike against her assailant, “Who…are…you…Liang Ni…”

Although Liang Ni was masked but there was something that he could not mask and that was his towering and well-built physique that was too easily recognizable.

But Xuan Danfeng’s strikes were like gentle tickle to Liang Ni as he smirked coldly, “Do you think with your current strength, you are able to stop me?” He had grabbed both her wrists with one hand and lifted her from the ground. His other hand was squeezing her huge breasts as he admired her full sexy body. “Tonight I will bang you and show you pleasures that you will always remember…”

Then he pulled the mask off his face as he started to salivate over her soft sensual body even as Xuan Danfeng was screaming and kicking him hard…

Xuan Danfeng could not believe that she would fall victim today to this vile person and as she attempted a louder scream, Liang Ni other hand was on her throat immediately.

“If you make more noises then I will have to silence you. You wouldn’t want anyone to find your dead and naked body in the next morning, am I right…”

But Liang Ni did not even have the time to finish his sentence when an extremely beautiful maiden had flashed next to him with a long beaming sword and struck him hard.

Liang Ni was startled and he quickly took several steps back to avoid her sword attacks. He was supposed to be impervious to most physical attacks but the sword that was in this unknown maiden’s hand was able to wound him!

Xuan Danfeng gasped out, “Nanyan, you are here? You’re not his match…quickly flee and call for help…”

The extremely beautiful maiden was indeed Gong Nanyan. In her panicky haste to rescue her protégé mistress, she had unsheathed the Lofty Snow Divine Sword. This divine sword was a gift from Xuan Danfeng to her and only the successors of the Lofty Snow Palace would be fit to carry this divine sword.

It was because Xuan Danfeng already had the intention to hand over the Palace Mistress to Gong Nanyan in the future.

Xuan Danfeng had quickly taken out a divine sword from her spatial ring as she struggled to stand weakly in Gong Nanyan’s arms.

Liang Ni was aroused when he saw that it was another beautiful maiden that had appeared. Although he did not know who she was but it did not matter to him at all. It was because she had only the cultivation level of an intermediate golden celestial and she posed no threat to him at all.

He quickly mustered his formidable aura and increased his martial strength. In this way, even if she had a formidable divine sword that was in her hands, it was just a toy in his eyes.

Liang Ni laughed lustfully, “It seems that today I will have two wonderful maidens to bed…”

He had suddenly attacked the newly arrival maiden with his formidable fists that were filled with his martial power but to his astonishment, in a blink of an eye she had evaded a dozen of his fists and had even struck him backward thrice!

He had really underestimated the evasive skills of the Lofty Snow Palace which was actually renowned in the entire fraternity as an epitome martial art.

But the gauge between them was too great and Liang Ni was an experienced fighter. In just a few moves, he was already familiar with her martial movements and he knew that he could get her within the next twenty moves…

Just as he was about to make his next attack and had just leapt forward, a flying sword had struck him out of the blue, sending him to fly backward against the wall with a tremendous impact!

Liang Ni coughed out blood as he struggled to stand and he was shaking with disbelief. There was no force that could possible move him in this manner after he had mustered his full martial force. Just as he focused his eyes to see who his attacker was, a thin lad had suddenly raised the immortal sword that was his hand and pierce through his chest with an overpowering thrust…

But still he was a peaked golden celestial and it was not easy to kill a golden celestial even if his body got pierced. But all of a sudden Liang Ni was convulsing as though his soul had been pierced and his spiritual sea was being drained by the immortal sword.

He was immediately panicky but it was already too late as he feebly tried to knock Xiaofang aside but he had immediately turned pale…

The thin lad was Xiaofang and the flying sword that had struck Liang Ni earlier was the same immortal sword that was in Xiaofang’s hand.

Although Xiaofang was only an intermediate golden celestial but the pureness of his strength and talent had given him the strength of a peaked golden celestial. Moreover he had already unblocked his accupoints to the Earth Divinity, enabling his strength to double. This added up his strength to the initial sacred saint level. Also the immortal sword that was in his hands was a heaven-step immortal sword and he had completely divine harmonized with it.

And when Xiaofang had thrust his immortal sword through Liang Ni’s chest, he had used all his martial strength to display the Lofty Empyrean Sword Energies in a flash. This divine skill coupled with the immortal sword that was in Xiaofang’s hand immediately propelled his martial strength to the peak of the sacred saint level.

And this time, Xiaofang did not hesitate to use his full strength because he clearly saw that Xuan Danfeng and Gong Nanyan were in a precautious situation.

Xiaofang was startled that the fight was over this fast as he muttered, “Huh? Why didn’t he dodge or parry?”

Xuan Danfeng immediately said weakly, “Thank you Xiaofang. This Liang Ni fellow is too dependable on his strong body to ward off attacks. His reactions are not as nimble as the rest. Should your attack fail then you will be dead for sure. Luckily you are able to strike him hard enough twice. Moreover you are using the Lofty Empyrean Sword Energies, an extreme negative sword energies art. Against his extreme positive body, it is quite fatal for him if it does pierce through into his spiritual sea.”

Xiaofang had turned around to nod when he saw the beautiful body of Xuan Danfeng. Immediately his nose was bleeding and he was reddened…

Xuan Danfeng was still tipsy and had forgotten that she had nothing on, “Alas, Xiaofang. Why are you looking at me like this? Do you think that I am beautiful?”

Gong Nanyan panicky looked around for Xuan Danfeng’s clothing but all she could find was a tattered gown…

Xiaofang weakly said as he continued to stare at her, “Erm, I am just thinking what we shall do with his body now…”

Xuan Danfeng chuckled softly, “Just throw it off the cliff.”

In the meantime, Gong Nanyan was panicky taking off her outer garment as she tried to cover Xuan Danfeng…

Chapter 118: Xuan Danfeng Banquet

Barely one day had passed and Xuan Danfeng was now hosting a mini banquet at the guest palace for the clan leaders and their elite protégés that were under the domain of the Lofty Snow Palace.

At first she had declined to host the banquet because she was still fragile and there was an upcoming battle with the Devil Isle that would take place soon.

However, the clan leaders that were in her domain strongly insisted on a commemorate event to honor her and would not take no for an answer.

“It has been ages since our domain has a great saintess. We should celebrate no matter what…”

“There is no doubt that with Palace Mistress Danfeng as a great saintess now, our domain is now firmly at the top of the middle-tier patriarch clan…”

“Palace Mistress Xuan Danfeng is not only beautiful but she is also amazing. She has actually attracted the nine-stage lightning tribulation and had overcome it to become a great saintess…”

“Of course she is amazing. That is why she is able to attract the nine-stage lightning tribulation…”

“Even the two great saints from the two top tier patriarch clans didn’t even attract the nine-stage lightning tribulation…”

“Haha, I am sure that Lin Wucheng and Tang Yiren must be so envious of our Xuan Danfeng…”

“Xuan Danfeng is now our goddess…hehehe…”

Xuan Danfeng was dressed in a beautiful gown that showed her assets. Although she looked frail, she was still as beautiful as ever. She had purposely worn a revealing gown that showed her frontal cleavages so that her lecherous followers would have a feast for their eyes.

As she entered the hallway, the protégés of the Lofty Snow Palace immediately greeted her excitingly. Behind her were her three direct disciples, Song Feixian, Xu Wenping and Wan’Er.

Immediately all the clan leaders were all staring at her busty cleavage that threatened to bust out anytime and they were enjoying it every moment of it especially when Xuan Danfeng would sway now and then.

Of course Xuan Danfeng was now flirting with them and they knew it. Most of the clan leaders here were her old acquaintances. They did not dare to get too close and personal to her lest they would get a death wish from the others. Still, they were enjoying themselves tremendous and they knew that Xuan Danfeng had dressed herself up for them.

One of the clan leaders immediately shouted excitingly, “Palace Mistress Danfeng is here…”

All the clan leaders and elite protégés of the various celestial clans were all rushing forward to greet her excitingly.

“Danfeng, are you well?”

“You look frail but extremely beautiful…”

“To me, you are the most beautiful maiden in the Nine Celestial Fraternity. No others can compare to you…” An old clan leader smiled with fond memories.

“Congrats on your ascension as a Great Saintess…”

“Hoho,” an old clan leader laughed jovially. “It seems that from today onward, we have to address our Saintess Danfeng as Great Saintess Danfeng now…”

Another clan leader laughed jovially as he clapped his hands, “That’s right, that is so true! From now onward, we ought to address her as Great Saintess Danfeng…”

Usually it was considered impolite to address the name of a respected senior directly, especially someone who was at a higher position or hierarchy. However all these clan leaders had known Xuan Danfeng very well and they were all calling her by her name.

Xuan Danfeng forced a faint smile, “Fellow celestial cultivators, Danfeng is so happy to see all of you. Alas, I am still so weak and have almost perished. So please pardon me if I don’t have any strength to chat with everyone.”

A ruddy clan leader smiled excitingly, “Not at all! We’re really so happy to see you. Even if you are unable to talk to us, we will still be so happy. Hehehe.”

“That’s right. Danfeng, quickly tell us how you overcome the lightning tribulation. We are so eager to hear from you. Hehehe…”

Twenty clan leaders and forty elite cultivators from the various celestial clans had gathered around Xuan Danfeng and were shoving each other to be as close as possible to her…

Song Feixian quietly glanced at Xu Wenping and Wan’Er. They had no idea what had happened last night. When they saw the lightning tribulation, their first thought was that it may be their protégé mistress that was undergoing the lightning tempering in order to transcend into a great saintess. However they could not find her anywhere…

It was only when the lightning tribulation was over that they saw Gong Nanyan carrying their unconscious protégé mistress into her room.

They were startled because they had not known that Gong Nanyan had come to the Unmoving Mountains…

Gong Nanyan said quietly, “Please don’t let the others know that you have seen me. Protégé mistress has hidden me from view because I have made some enemies that are from the other patriarch clans. Our protégé mistress has just overcome her lightning tribulation and she is terribly weak. I will like to accompany her for the night…”

Chapter 117: Ancient immortal artefacts

Feng Minyue said quietly to Xiaofang, “She is inside…” With a sorrowful expression, Feng Minyue sighed softly before she departed.

As she departed and walked into the inner court, she saw that Su Shanyue was looking with a flustered manner when they bumped into each other.

Su Shanyue seemed to have put on two extra beautiful hairpins and her makeup was also scented.

She asked gently, “Little protégé sister, where are you going? You look so flustered? Why are you dress up so pretty for?”

Su Shanyue shifted her eyes and stammered, “Nothing. It is just that Tang Yiren from the Celestial Sword Clan has just become a great saint. Grandmaster Yun Xinghe has invited me to attend a small banquet that is held in his honor. Actually…I didn’t want to go. I am just going there to cause a little trouble for him. As you know, he has been making noises at our gates for two weeks now. If I don’t teach him a lesson then he will think that the Heavenly Fragrance Villa is a clan that he can bully…”

Then she smiled awkwardly, “Alas, senior sister…I’m running late…after I’ve taught him a lesson then I will share with you tonight. Alright? See you later…” With that, she had run off in a hurry.

Feng Minyue was startled. It was obvious that Su Shanyue did not speak the whole truth…

“What is going on here?”

The truth was that after two weeks of constant bickering, Yun Xinghe and Su Shanyue found that they had taken a liking to each other. By then, Yun Xinghe knew that chasing after Saintess Yuqing was an impossible dream that was difficult to attain for their cultivation level difference was too vast. And the more he looked at Su Shanyue, the more that he felt she was attractive and was enticing.

As for Su Shanyue, at first she had found Yun Xinghe to be quite dense and loathing. It was because he would come every day and was insistent on seeing Saintess Yuqing even though she had kindly informed him that Saintess Yuqing was not available to see him.

But one day when Yun Xinghe did not turn up, she found herself standing at the gate waiting for him to come so that she could scold him. But he never turned up…

It was only then that she realized that this unlikeable Yun Xinghe had a place in her heart by now…

Today Yun Xinghe had invited only her to attend the small banquet that was hosted by the Celestial Sword Clan and that was why she had specially dressed up to attend the function.

As for teaching Yun Xinghe a lesson, it was a lame excuse that she had cooked up so that her senior sister would not suspect anything…

At this moment, Xiaofang was standing at the door. He hesitated for some time before he mustered the courage to knock, “Xiaofang here. I’m here to see you.”

There was a slight movement in the room before the soft and mesmerizing voice of Fan Yuqing could be heard saying, “Come in.”

As Xiaofang opened the door and stepped into the room, he saw that the room was scented with a heavenly fragrance and there were many pink curtains.

“You can come closer.” Fan Yuqing said gently behind the curtains.

As Xiaofang pulled the curtains and entered, he saw that Fan Yuqing was sitting upright in her bed. She was looking awfully pale and her eyes were red.

Xiaofang was startled. It looked like she had been crying?

Indeed she had been crying until Xiaofang knocked on her door. It was because she knew that Dongfang Jun was no longer in the world anymore. She did not need Ye Jing to tell her what had happened.

When Ye Jing had told her that the celestial painting was Dongfang Jun’s last gift to her, she had already guessed what happened. The reason why Ye Jing did not tell her directly was because she did not want her to be sad and was trying to keep a hope alive for her.

Xiaofang said as he took out a pill from his pouch, “This is the Dragon Vitality Spirit Pill that is from your aunt. She asks me to give it to you.”

Fan Yuqing quietly took the pill but she did not consume it immediately. Instead, she grasped it within her fingers as she said gently. “Thank you.”

Xiaofang heaved a soft sigh, “I should be the one that should say thank you. If it is not for you, Jing’Er will no longer be here anymore.”

Fan Yuqing lowered her glances, “No, it is actually all my fault for trying to be a busybody. I’ve almost killed her instead.”

Xiaofang smiled weakly, “She asks me to say thank you to you and she doesn’t blame you at all. Well, it is all over now. Are…you really alright?”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “Hmph, it seems that I will be out of commission for a while and won’t be able to help with the upcoming battle.”

Xiaofang nodded, “Is that so? Don’t worry. I will take it over from here.”

Fan Yuqing turned and look at him with an intense expression, “You…” Then she smiled wryly, “Don’t be a dead hero. It never pays to be a hero.”

Xiaofang grinned, “Well, I have to fight because I gonna protect Jing’Er and Nanyan from harm. Even though I am not a saint cultivator but I am good with the sword and I’m younger and have more energy than those old cultivators from the Devil Isle.”

Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “You can’t even beat me. How do you beat those folks from the Devil Isle?”

Xiaofang smiled, “Why should I want to beat you? You’re not my enemy.”

Fan Yuqing looked away, “Then I’m a friend to you?”

Xiaofang nodded and grinned, “Yes, a good friend. You’ve taught me many new things while we are at the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. Moreover, you have helped me to attain the Earth Divinity. I won’t be as strong as now without your help.”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “Have you ever considered that we can be more than friends someday?”

Xiaofang was startled by her question but he did not want to lie to her. He sighed heavily, “I got only two arms. My arms are for Jing’Er and Nanyan. I don’t have three arms.”

In the celestial fraternity, it was common for many to take two consorts; a main and a secondary consort. And Xiaofang had already found his main and secondary consort.

However, it was also not so uncommon for men to take three or more consorts. But this was something that Fan Yuqing had no illusions about. She had merely asked to probe his thoughts.

Fan Yuqing nodded quietly, “Is that so…” Without a doubt, Xiaofang had rejected her again.

Xiaofang said quietly, “You are probably the most beautiful maiden that I’ve ever known. Surely you have no lack of suitors in the future.”

Fan Yuqing lowered her glances, “You are lying. If I am the most beautiful maiden in your eyes, why didn’t you fall for me? Don’t all men like beautiful women?”

Xiaofang replied awkwardly, “I’m sure all men like beautiful women. But Jing’Er and I have many things in common and we can talk freely. She is silly sometimes and so do I. I have the same thing with Nanyan. They are both bold maidens that I like very much.”

He paused with a soft sigh, “But with you, your presence always overwhelm me and I…”

Fan Yuqing interrupted softly but there was no emotions from her countenance, “With me, you feel intimidated.”

“No, you are a noble lady. I just feel that we are two worlds apart.” Xiaofang mustered his courage to say.

Fan Yuqing gave a gently smile, “I…understand…now.”

Xiaofang smiled weakly and said, “Thank you for understanding. I shall take my leave now.”

Fan Yuqing raised her voice a little as she said, “Wait…”

Then she looked quietly at Xiaofang, “What if one day I am willing to lower myself. When that day comes, will you be willing to accept me then?”

Xiaofang did not say anything. He looked back for a glance at her before he turning away…

Fan Yuqing lowered her glances and her heart was filled with disappointment…

Her lips slowly moved as she muttered, “Dongfang Jun…”

All of a sudden there was another knock.

She was startled as she thought, “Is Xiaofang? He comes back because he still wants to talk with me?”

“It’s your Uncle Huan. May I come in for a while?”

She was a little disappointed and said slowly, “Come…in…”

It was her Uncle Huan the Celestial Liege.

When she saw him, she gently nodded and said, “Thank you. I know that you have expended your life energies to revive me.”

The Celestial Liege smiled, “Niece Yuqin, we are only too glad that you are well.”

Then he sighed softly before he said, “After so many years have passed, I hope that you can forgive us. We are so wrong back then.”

Then he took out a scroll and a flute, “The Primordial Heaven Chart and the Tranquil Flute are two of the three ancient immortal artefacts that the Jade Emperor left behind to us before he returned to the immortal realm. The third ancient immortal artefact is the Eternal Lotus and it is given to Yi Si. Today, we are giving these two immortal artefacts to you.”

Fan Yuqing looked up with a perplexed look, “Why should you leave something so precious for me? And there are two of them?”

The Celestial Liege said quietly, “Each one of the ancient immortal artefacts that the Jade Emperor had left behind for us has their own unique powers. Take the Tranquil Flute for example, it can hasten your spirit strength recovery by a hundred times faster and can aid cultivation breakthroughs. As for the Primordial Heaven Chart, you can use it to find transmigrate souls if your cultivation level is high enough. Meaning…”

Fan Yuqing interrupted with a soft gasp, “I can find Dongfang Jun reincarnation?”

The Celestial Liege nodded as he placed the two ancient immortal artefacts into her hands, “While it is quite impossible to actually find someone with just the Primordial Heaven Chart alone but if you have the Tranquil Flute to aid you, your search will be a lot easier.”

Then he said, “I hope that we can make amends to you…”

Fan Yuqing sighed quietly, “Thank you…”

Then she said quietly, “The reason why I had left home isn’t really because of Dongfang Jun. It is because I’ve overheard that the dark descendant will take place in the near future. I…want to do something about it.”

The Celestial Liege was startled, “You knew…”

Chapter 116: The Ascend Divinity

Ye Jing was sobbing and was inconsolable in her room. In her hands were the remnants of the Lofty Wind Mountains Painting and she was holding onto these fragments as she sobbed uncontrollably.

The final lightning strike had almost killed them all. They would have all been killed if not for the last reserve of the pure spiritual force that was within the Lofty Wind Mountains Painting. It was not wrong to say that the final lightning had actually killed them, destroyed their meridians and voided their entire spiritual seas.

But because of the rich and pure spiritual force that was created when the Loft Wind Mountains Painting was destroyed, they managed to hold onto life and were barely revived.

Xiaofang was alone with Ye Jing as he watched her quietly before he said, “Jing’Er, you keep calling out his name. Who is this Dongfang Jun…”

Ye Jing hid her face in her arms as she continued to sob while saying, “Xiaofang, there is something that you must know…two months ago, I married a man by the name of Dongfang Jun…this celestial painting is his last gift to me. He is no longer living now. I may have married him because I pity him but he is really a nice man. This celestial painting has kept his memories alive for me…”

“Xiaofang, do you blame me or hate me because I have married someone else?”

Xiaofang looked quietly at Ye Jing as he shook his head, “No, I don’t. I am just curious why this celestial painting is so important to you. Now I know why and that is enough.”

He lowered his glances and added, “This Dongfang Jun must really be a nice person for you to care so much for him.”

Ye Jing cried softly, “He is a gentleman and he uses his life to protect his clan…”

Xiaofang nodded and tried to cheer her up, “Jing’Er, you are a Great Saintess now. You should cheer up. After all, you are alive now and it is all thanks to Dongfang Jun’s last gift to you. He wants you to live well. I am sure that it is really what he wants and he won’t want to see you in this manner.”

Ye Jing slowly nodded as she looked at him, “You’re not upset with me?”

Then she smiled weakly, “You should go and take a look at Fan Yuqing. She took the last hit for all of us. Even if she did not die, her injuries won’t be light. Moreover, she doesn’t have any friends except for Feng Minyue.”

Xiaofang said quietly, “I think I should stay here to accompany you for a while…”

Ye Jing shook her head, “I will be alright after a while. Why are you so dense? Go find her and say something nice to her. Tell her I don’t blame her and help me to thank her for saving my life…”

Xiaofang slowly got up and said, “Alright then…”

The Confession Lady had just come into the room just as Xiaofang was leaving. She asked with a startled expression, “Xiaofang, you are leaving so soon?”

Xiaofang nodded, “I am going to see Fan Yuqing and to thank her…”

The Confession Lady quickly stopped him and said, “This is the Dragon Vitality Spirit Pill. Please give it to her.”

Xiaofang asked, “What if she don’t take it?”

The Confession Lady smiled as she put the pill into Xiaofang’s hand, “Although she doesn’t like to take things from us but she will surely take this pill. Trust me. Hurry now.”

Xiaofang nodded and left the room.

The Confession Lady was at Ye Jing side as she said gently, “Jing’Er, please take this Dragon Vitality Spirit Pill as well. This pill will aid your recovery. You will be able to get back 10-20% of your spirit strength back.”

Ye Jing eyes were still wet as she eyed the pill with a startled expression, “This…this is indeed a miracle pill.”

With her spirit veins currently in such a weak condition, it would take her a few months just to recover 10% of her spirit strength.

The Confession Lady smiled, “Indeed. These divine pills can cost tens of thousands gold coins in the black market. It is not easy to get and we have some for emergencies. Now we will give it to you.”

Ye Jing took the divine pill with trembling fingers as she said, “Thank you god-mother…”

Then she put the divine pill into her mouth as she chewed, “How is Yuqing? Is she fine?”

The Confession Lady sighed heavily, “Her injuries are more severe than we’ve expected. When we had found her, we thought that her star had already fallen. Just as we had already given up all hopes, she muttered a man’s name and there was a vital life. We use that short window to transfer our life energies to revive her.”

Ye Jing was startled, “You transfer your life energies to her?”

When a celestial burnt their life energies, it would take them some time to naturally recover and sometime this could mean a long time for some of the cultivators!

The Confession Lady nodded, “The Celestial Liege and I both used thirty percent of our vital life energies. Our celestial strength has dropped to the initial sacred saint level and we won’t be recovering anytime soon. But our efforts are not in vain since Yuqing has managed to pull through. We are only too glad to be able to help her.”

Ye Jing nodded slowly, “I really don’t know how to repay her this time. She has already repaid me more than enough for saving her in the gorge.”

The Confession Lady nodded with an uneasy look before she said gently, “Jing’Er, I go out first. Please take a good rest. I will be back to see you later.”

Ye Jing nodded and her eyes sunk back into her arms again…

When the Confession Lady had left the room, Ye Jing raised her head and moved her fingers.

Slowly, her immortal sword had materialized into her hands as she gripped it tightly. “Thank you too for saving my life…”

This time, she felt that her connection to her sword was perfect and she had indeed achieved oneness with her sword and had successfully divine harmonized with it.

As she watched her haggard self onto the reflection of her sword blade, her gray eyes had suddenly returned to a brilliant golden. This startled her as she gasped, “Don’t tell me that I have overcome the Crisis Divinity and had now breakthrough to the Ascend Divinity? I’m a double golden celestial now?…”

This was something that she had not thought possible when she started to cultivate the mundane celestial practice. Although her Celestial Teacher Yi Si had told her that since she was already a celestial, her cultivation speed with the mundane celestial practice would be rapid but she had never expected that she had actually reached the peak of the mundane celestial practice within a year time.

The Ascend Divinity is a special state of divinity. There is no initial, intermediate or late stage to the Divinity. The meaning of Ascend 大乘 refers to the enlightenment of the cultivator in attaining as a golden celestial and can ascend. Since Ye Jing is already in the celestial realm, there is no need for her to complete this ascension. However, attaining to the Ascend Divinity means that she can now merge her newly attained divinity with her sacred saint level as a double golden celestial.

Ye Jing was trembling, “This lightning tribulation has nearly killed me but it also helps me to overcome my late stage of my Crisis Divinity…”

Chapter 115: Lightning Tribulation (3)

A large purple streak of lightning had flashed onto Fan Yuqing with a thunderous bloom as she raised her hands to receive the full blast of the lightning. At the same time, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng had also cried out loud as the full force of the lightning rippled through them, threatening to rip their very souls to pieces!

Fan Yuqing, Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing were all trembling with the aftershocks of the lightning blast as they attempted to recover their wits…

Ye Jing said weakly, “Guess that we have just managed to survive the second lightning. Seven more to go…”

Xuan Danfeng nodded. Her fingers were trembling as she popped in a vitality pill while Fan Yuqing was looking extremely pale as she grasped tightly the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth.

Ye Jing tenderly touched Fan Yuqing’s hand and asked gently, “Are you alright? You really don’t look so well.”

Fan Yuqing closed her eyes and said, “I’m alright. You have better focused on your own survival first.”

Ye Jing nodded weakly as she popped a pill before she said, “Sisters, I still have some high grade soul stones here to replenish our spiritual force…”

Fan Yuqing quietly grabbed one of the high grade soul stones before she closed her eyes once more to recuperate from her injuries. It was because she knew that she had to recuperate faster than the lightning attacks or else she would not be able to survive this lightning tribulation.

Soon, the third, fourth, fifth and sixth purple lightning had descended and a hole that was 3m deep had appeared where Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were and they were all lying on the ground now…

Even the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth had cracked under the pressure of the continuous lightning strikes. The only thing that was unaffected by the lightning strikes was Ye Jing’s immortal sword.

Up on the slope of the mountains, Xiaofang could barely watch anymore; he was trembling and hating himself that he was unable to help. He had wanted to rush down the mountain slope but the Celestial Liege warned him of the consequences of distracting them.

“There is nothing we can do now except to observe.” He warned Xiaofang.

The seventh purple lightning had burst from the dark heavens like a furious coiling dragon and was now flashing to the ground below where Fan Yuqing, Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing were.

Fan Yuqing quickly mustered all her strength to stand up as she raised her palm to receive the full fury of the sixth purple lightning as she coughed out blood before she was slammed in a circle onto the ground while Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were scattered around the newly created pit as they coughed out a few mouthful of blood.

As they all landed simultaneous on the ground, the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth had also scattered into hundreds of fragments…

Ye Jing smiled weakly with her face on the ground, “The horn is gone now…so are all our soul stones…”

Xuan Danfeng was convulsing on the ground as she struggled to eat the pill that was in her fingers but the lightning had left her upper body paralyzed…

Fan Yuqing was lying on the ground and her breathing was extremely weak, “We…have taken so many divine pills already. These pills do not have any effect anymore…”

She closed her eyes and said, “Sister Jing, Sister Danfeng….I’m sorry. I’ve thought that we’re able to pull through this. But in the end…I am just so weak…and my haughtiness has even cost you your lives…”

Ye Jing muttered, “You…are not…weak. You are taking twice the hits as us…we’re actually…not bad…at all, we have managed to survive until now.”

Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly, “At least, we…can still chat…for five minutes more…any last wishes?…”

Ye Jing said weakly, “…Sister Yuqing…I’ve a secret to tell you…I actually do not trust you or like you when we have first met…”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “Is this…even a secret?”

Ye Jing grinned weakly, “I like you when we’re in the…Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth…I wish that… journey has not ended so fast…”

Fan Yuqing smiled quietly, “Is that so…”

Ye Jing gasped weakly as she coughed out another mouthful of blood, “I…have…another secret…that I want to tell you…”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “I thought…you just say you only have one secret…and now you have…another secret?”

“That one…doesn’t count since you…have already known. This one…is a real…secret….do you remember Dongfang Jun? I’ve met him and…”

Fan Yuqing was jolted and she gasped weakly, “What about him?…”

Ye Jing smiled and said weakly, “If we survive the next lightning then…I will tell you…alright?…the next wave of lightning…is starting soon…”

The entire dark heavens were now arcing with purple lightning and the mountains were shaking with the sounds of thunders.

Rumble! Boom!

An explosive purple lightning had descended once more against them!

Fan Yuqing mustered all her entire strength as she struggled to stand but the most she could manage was only to her knees as she raised her palm upward to receive the eighth purple lightning, “Ye…Jing! Don’t die…and don’t forget to tell me…”

The ground below them had sunk another 1m and the earth was sent flying all around them in a huge explosive impact. Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were all sent flying and rolling on the ground…

After a few pauses, Fan Yuqing struggled to stand but instead she was crawling toward the motionless Ye Jing, “Ye Jing, don’t…die! What…about…Dongfang Jun…you promise…to tell me…about him…”

When she had crawled to Ye Jing, she called out weakly. “Wake….up…please…” Upon seeing that Ye Jing was motionless and did not respond, she slapped her gently on the face. “You badass maiden…you promise to tell me about Dongfang Jun…”

At this moment Xuan Danfeng was aroused by Yuqing panicky calls for Ye Jing. She did not even have the strength to open her eyes as she muttered weakly, “I heard your voice…is Ye Jing…still there…”

Fan Yuqing slapped Ye Jing’s cheek a little harder, “You are a golden celestial as well as a saintess now. You…can’t die like this…”

The tribulation lightning had voided Ye Jing’s entire spiritual sea and all her meridians were dead. That was why Ye Jing were no longer responding. A golden celestial may have superb regeneration ability but without spiritual force, regeneration was not possible; the tribulation lightning had severed Ye Jing’s meridians and voided her spiritual sea, making regeneration nearly impossible as regeneration depended on spiritual force and the meridians as its conduit.

Xuan Danfeng muttered weakly, “Yuqing…I don’t think I can make it to the very last…thank you…I happy to know you as a friend as well as a sister…”

Fan Yuqing coughed weakly, “We will make it. Try to be strong…don’t take the lead from Ye Jing…she is so useless…”

All of a sudden Fan Yuqing froze as she sensed a strong spiritual force that was within Ye Jing. Without thinking, she had reached into Ye Jing’s spatial space and took out a folded painting, “This scroll, why does this painting have so much spiritual force within it?”

Without thinking, she had spread out the celestial painting and an outflowing of strong spiritual force quickly enveloped the pit.

Xuan Danfeng was revived by the spiritual force and she managed to open one eye weakly, “What is this? Did…a miracle just happen…”

Even Ye Jing was revived by the strong surge of spiritual force…

Ye Jing was suddenly convulsing weakly as she grabbed Fan Yuqing weakly, “Please…this…painting is more valuable…than my life. It is Dongfang Jun…last gift to me…if you use it here, it will be destroyed…”

Fan Yuqing was startled but after a moment thought, she said weakly. “If we all die here then Dongfang Jun won’t be happy…”

She sighed quietly as she looked at the celestial painting. Through it, she could sense Dongfang Jun’s aura. He must have spent many years meditating and cultivating with this celestial painting…

Mustering whatever strength she could, she tried to absorb as much spiritual force as possible while saying. “Your spiritual sea is already voided of any spiritual force and you are unable to absorb any now. Only this celestial painting will be able to save us…”

Then she knocked Ye Jing to sleep. Afterward she crawled to Ye Jing’s immortal sword as she spat her blood on it before gripping the sword up to the heavens…

Xuan Danfeng was startled as she coughed out, “Yuqing, no wait…are you thinking of drawing the lightning entirely onto yourself?”

“Come, this is the ninth lightning strike already…” Fan Yuqing muttered as she attempted to stand.

Heavy downpour and strong winds began to descend…

Finally the last purple lightning streaked across the heavens, gathering strength and with a mighty thunderous rumble, it flashed down upon the tip of the immortal sword and Fan Yuqing screamed out loud as brilliant light surrounded her…

This last lightning bolt was actually more powerful than the first eight lightning and the entire vicinity exploded with its fury as the mountains shook violently.

Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, the Celestial Liege, the Confession Lady and the rest who had a bird eye view could only see a burst of purple light exploding into the pit where Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were and the entire vicinity was now carpeted with thick smog…

Without saying a word, Xiaofang had dashed down the mountains!

He was quickly followed by Gong Nanyan, the Celestial Liege, the Confession Lady, Chu Yunfeng, Luo Bihua and Li’Er.

Even Beitang Ying was rushing down the mountains after she had recovered from her shock of witnessing the nine-stage tribulations…

Xiaofang was bleary as he shouted for Ye Jing amidst the heavy downpour and the strong howling winds…

“Jing’Er, you will be alright. Please be alright…”

Elsewhere there were excited shouts as the news quickly spread that Lin Wucheng and Tang Yiren had both successful overcome their lightning tribulations and were both Great Saint now…

Chapter 114: Lightning Tribulation (2)

When Fan Yuqing arrived at Ye Jing’s place, Xiaofang, Chu Yunfeng, Luo Bihua and Li’Er had also arrived and they were all gathering nervously around Ye Jing.

Ye Jing was heard panicking asking them, “What should I do? This is my first time…”

Fan Yuqing sighed softly as she greeted the Celestial Liege and the Confession Lady, “Hi, long time no see…”

The Confession Lady looked blankly at Fan Yuqing, “Child, are you well? How’s everything going?”

But Fan Yuqing did not respond as she looked at Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing. It was obvious that it was Ye Jing that was undergoing the lightning tribulation and not Xuan Danfeng.

She smiled weakly at Ye Jing, “You are in trouble again, am I right?”

Ye Jing protested weakly, “It isn’t my fault. It is Sister Danfeng…she distracts me and suddenly it happens…I really don’t know exactly what is happening…”

Xuan Danfeng was smiling awkwardly, “I didn’t know that she is in the midst of her cultivation…”

Fan Yuqing folded her arms and said coolly, “Now that it happens, there is nothing we can do. She is pretty lucky to have her lightning tribulation so soon. Let’s see now if she can overcome it. Don’t stay in the room unless you want the entire place to be blown apart by lightning later. You have only got a short time to prepare before the actual lightning tribulation starts.”

Ye Jing quickly picked up her sword and asked around panicky, “So what should I do?!”

The Celestial Liege said, “Prepare whatever you can. You need to have lightning resistant artefacts or any treasures that may help you.”

Ye Jing was smiling weakly, “I don’t have any…”

Xiaofang suddenly spoke out as he took out a horn, “Jing’Er, wait! This is the horn of the Tyrant Behemoth. Although we have not refined it into lightning pills yet but the horn is still useful.”

Fan Yuqing frowned, “It seems that Ye Jing has quite a bit of luck today. If I am not wrong then this is the horn of an eight rank Tyrant Behemoth. How did you manage to get it?”

Xiaofang grinned, “From the corpse of the Tyrant Behemoth when we had fallen into the gorge. Where we had found you…”

Fan Yuqing immediately waved her fingers. She did not want to refresh her memories with that dreadful place for as long as she lived. Then she turned to Xuan Danfeng, “Since Ye Jing is facing the lightning tribulation, it will be a little weird if Xuan Danfeng doesn’t face hers. She will find it difficult to account to everyone later. Why don’t Sister Danfeng takes the lightning tribulation at the same time?”

Xuan Danfeng smiled awkwardly, “It is not like I have a choice…”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “If I say you can then you will be able to. I will help to be your conduit…”

The Confession Lady immediately said, “Niece, this is too dangerous. You can’t risk your body like this…”

Fan Yuqing smiled coldly, “I’ve grown up now. I know what I am doing.”

The Celestial Liege nodded and said to his consort, “Let it be. Let’s assist at the side.”

Slowly the Confession Lady nodded as she heaved a soft sigh, “Niece, be very careful.”

Fan Yuqing had turned to Xuan Danfeng, “Hold your hand onto mine. Release all your spiritual force just like what Ye Jing is doing now. This is the exact same experience as when you are having a breakthrough from the golden celestial level to the sacred saint level.”

Xuan Danfeng nodded nervously and she did as Fan Yuqing had told her to do.

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Actually, my spiritual force seems to be leaking. It is not like I am actually releasing my spiritual force on my own accord…”

Fan Yuqing grabbed Ye Jing’s hand as the three of them sat around Ye Jing’s immortal sword, “You talk too much. Aren’t you afraid of dying?”

Ye Jing smiled bitterly, “I am really afraid. That’s why I am talking so much. So what are you planning to do?”

Fan Yuqing looked up and looked at everyone, “Firstly, everyone else should get as far away as possible from this place until we are the size of a berry in your vision. Secondly, the three of us will be taking the lightning tribulation together. The real lightning tribulation will of course aim for Ye Jing but because I am acting as the conduit, the lightning tribulation will be aiming for me instead before distributing its raw power to Ye Jing and Danfeng.”

Then she frowned softly, “Why is the rest of you still here?”

Xiaofang smiled bitterly as he said, “Jing’Er, be careful…”

Ye Jing was secretly looking at Xiaofang as she said silently, “Xiaofang, if I don’t pull through then I hope that you can be strong…”

Gong Nanyan said softly to Xuan Danfeng, “Protégé mistress, please be careful…”

Afterward, everyone had departed except for Ye Jing, Xuan Danfeng and Fan Yuqing.

Fan Yuqing was also releasing her aura and her golden aura had completely enveloped over Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng.

Ye Jing was smiling, “Sister Yuqing, your aura is so comfortable and soothing. Almost intoxicating.”

Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “You won’t say that once the lightning tribulation has started.”

Xuan Danfeng nervously said as she quickly took out some of the precious pills that she had been saving and distributed to Ye Jing and Fan Yuqing, “There are many types of lightning tribulation. The three-stage silver lightning tribulation, the six-stage golden lightning tribulation and the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation. I wonder what we will be facing? Since Ye Jing had only just reached the intermediate saintess level then this should be the easiest of the lightning tribulations, the three-stage silver lightning tribulation.”

Fan Yuqing smiled as she said casually, “You are probably right in your guess. But with me as the conduit, this will probably be the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation instead.”

When she had said that, Xuan Danfeng and Ye Jing had immediately turned ashen as they both said weakly together, “Crap! Holy! I am going to die here today!…”

Ye Jing was almost in tears, “I think I just got conned by you. Sister Yuqing, please be merciful and let go of my hands…”

Xuan Danfeng actually had a tear that dripped down her cheek as she said almost incoherently, “I have heard that the three-stage silver lightning tribulation is nine times more fearsome than a normal lightning while the six-stage golden lightning tribulation is thirty-six times more deadly than a normal lightning. As for the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation, it is eighty-one times more deadly than a normal lightning. If we were to take the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation then we will be struck by nine lightning one after another that have the ferocity of 81 lightning. All in all, we have to take the punishment of 729 lightning. This is not something that our golden bodies will be able to take.”

Ye Jing was smiling bitterly, “Sister Danfeng, your math is really good…”

Xuan Danfeng smiled weakly, “Not really. I have done some early assumptions just in case I have to take my lightning tribulation one day.”

Fan Yuqing looked at them and said casually, “Taking the nine-stage lightning tribulation will only make your future potential stronger as a Great Saintess and increases the likelihood for your immortal ascension. Taking the three-stage lightning tribulation will only make you a weak Great Saintess…”

“I don’t mind being a weak Great Saintess…” Both Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng said weakly at the same time.

Ye Jing gave a faint smile, “It is better than a dead Great Saintess.”

Xuan Danfeng was smiling bitterly, “I agree as well.”

Fan Yuqing frowned lightly, “The two of you have no aspirations at all. I can’t believe that you are patriarch leaders. You only got this one chance to temper your celestial body and you won’t have a second chance. Don’t be afraid and trust me. I’ve taken the nine-stage purple lightning tribulation. It isn’t that difficult to overcome it. I was only half-dead when I had overcome it.”

Ye Jing, Xuan Danfeng: …

Fan Yuqing continued casually as she saw the lightning had turned into freaking purple and was thundering as though it was sundering the heavens and the earth, “Well, it seems that the lightning tribulation is about to start. Be prepare…”

Ye Jing panicky said, “Wait! I still I’m going to take a pee…I am so nervous…”

Xuan Danfeng blurted out, “I’ve stomach cramp now. What a bad timing…I need to take a pee too…”

Fan Yuqing frowned with disbelief at their nervousness, “Pee in your panties then because it is already starting…”

As she said that, a purple streak of lightning had suddenly descended and had flown into them, exploding furiously as it struck!

Xiaofang, Gong Nanyan, Beitang Ying, the Celestial Liege, Li’Er, Chu Yunfeng, the Confession Lady and Luo Bihua who were watching from the side of the mountain were startled at the intensity of the purple lightning bolt as it exploded over Ye Jing, Fan Yuqing and Xuan Danfeng, sending fires, debris and dust to scatter all around…

Xiaofang had broken into cold sweat as he could only stared at what was happening and he was unable to do anything to help…

Gong Nanyan was trembling nonstop and her golden eyes were watery…

When the dust had scattered, Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were all breathing hard. All three of them had received a tremendous jolt though their hearts and it felt like their souls could depart from their bodies.

Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were startled to see that there was blood that was dripping down from Fan Yuqing’s lips. It seemed that she had taken more punishment than them…

Fan Yuqing weakly said, “You are only taking the strength of 81 lightning but I’ve to take the strength of 162 lightning because of my heaven-defying act. Don’t be a crybaby and start to be serious or we will all lose our lives here.”

Ye Jing and Xuan Danfeng were immediately guilty as they popped in whatever divine pills that they had as they exercised all their spiritual strength to the fullness in anticipation for the next stroke of forthcoming lightning.

Fan Yuqing smiled weakly as she took a pill, “Good. This won’t be easy but with the horn of Tyrant Behemoth here and Ye Jing’s immortal sword that can dissipate energies here, we do have a good chance to succeed. So don’t any of you die halfway.”

Xuan Danfeng nodded weakly while Ye Jing pursued her lips and said weakly, “You too, Sister Saintess Yuqing…”

Fan Yuqing looked up to the thundering heavens and said grimly, “The second lightning is coming soon…”

Elsewhere, there were many celestials that had gathered to watch the lightning tribulations at a safe distance and were discussing hotly…

“Elder Lin Wucheng of the Ancient Ascension Sect has attracted a three-stage lightning tribulation…”

“The Celestial Sword Clan Elder Tang Yiren has attracted a six-stage lightning tribulation…”

“Look! Palace Mistress Xuan Danfeng has actually attracted a nine-stage lightning tribulation?!”

“Isn’t Xuan Danfeng the youngest saint among the three?”

“Will Xuan Danfeng going to survive the nine-stage lightning tribulation?…”

“Even Saintess Mu Huiyin has attracted only a three-stage lightning tribulation…”

“I’ve heard that Saintess Ziyue had previously attracted a six-stage lightning tribulation. That is why she is able to remain in the celestial realm for such a long time…”

“It is an extremely rare chance to see this nine-stage lightning tribulation. It is said that even the mountains will be shattered by the purple lightning…”

“If a saint were to survive through a three stage lightning tribulation, their time here will be extended for two to four thousand years.
