Chapter 85: Ambush (2)

The instant that Yuan Ji had raised his sword against Saintess Jian Yuluo, she had completely blocked his attack. So swift was her attack and the strength of her profound strength that she had sent him to scurry backward.

“Middle tier Seventh Realm Saintess!” Yuan Ji gasped softly.

He was smiling, “Not bad.”

When he had said not bad, he had sent a sixth realm golden celestial that was trying to sneak on his back to fly backward with a quick slash of his sword.

Saintess Jian Yuluo smiled as she greeted back with her returning sword strokes, “I have also advanced since we have last met.”

As she said at the same time, she had also flashed forward, disappearing before vanishing in front of Yuan Ji with several powerful sword strokes that were imbued with her profound power.

Yuan Ji quickly parried off her attacks and exploded his deadly sword energies around him, causing several of the golden celestials that were on his tail to scurry away.

“Ji Yuan, you seem to be faster than ever before. You can even block off my Vanishing Sword Art.” Jian Yuluo smiled coldly at him.

“I wonder how you may fare against my Profound Heaven Sword?” Jian Yuluo said aloud as she displayed a wave of powerful profound wave in a circular motion.

“Profound Heaven Sword 8th Rank!”

Yuan Ji immediately mustered all his profound strength into his sword as profound power to block her incoming sword art. He had barely blocked it when Jian Menghao and several golden celestials had joined behind Jian Yuluo as they displayed the profound power of their Profound Heaven Sword to empower Saintess Jian Yuluo.

This caused Ji Yuan to cough out a bout of blood as he was overwhelmed by the raw profound power of his attackers.

Three blinks of an eye later, he was sent flying backward and he had crashed into a huge boulder behind him!

Ling Feiyue was not having an easier time too.

It was because Great Saint Jian Kang had displayed the 8th rank of the Profound Heaven Sword on Ling Feiyue and Great Saint Jin Tianzong had also displayed an epitome sword art the Sweeping Gale Force that caused all the surrounding pebbles to hit her with multiple tremendous impacts!

Two Great Saints of the two most powerful patriarch clans and numerous golden celestials were now fighting against a lone Great Saintess. Even if Ling Feiyue had several divine arts under her sleeves but she was now hard pressed and she was defending more than she could attack.

As for Xue Qianxue, she was surrounded by five saints and many others. Although her Ninth Rank Sacred Maiden Profound Art was extremely formidable and she could pressure her opponents but her opponents were all on the defensive to lure her into expending her profound strength.

With such cunning opponents, Xue Qianxue was really helpless and she could only finish off a few weaker golden celestials that got too careless or impatient.

Yuan Ji knew that if they continued in this way, they would soon be finished.

The entire mountain was rocked by the profound powers and powerful strokes of the golden celestials as they battled furiously against one another.

Jian Yuluo whispered to him as she engaged him in melee, “Ji Yuan, is this your best performance? I don’t want you to show me any mercy or else your two beautiful friends will soon be dead!”

Yuan Ji hummed coldly as he whispered back, “Yuluo, where is your 9th rank of the Profound Heaven Sword? I am still waiting for you to use it on me. Surely with your talents, you must have already mastered it.”

As he said that, he had imploded his sword bursts all around him, scattering the other golden celestials that were getting too close to him.

All of a sudden there were loud shrieks and screams above them as dozens of cultivators in their flying mounts were massacred by dozens of large flying beasts that had crept from the desolate mists below.

Everyone was startled, including Yuan Ji as they saw that these flying beasts were actually giant seventh rank profound draconic beasts.

These draconic beasts had a name and were called the Titan Draconic Beasts. These Titan Draconic Beasts were extremely ferocious and were rarely seen in a group but today they were actually seeing several dozens of them!

Legends had it that these Titan Draconic Beasts were the offspring of the God Beast Flood Dragon that dwelled in the Immortal Realm.

But regardless if the legends were true, these Titan Draconic Beasts were not easy to handle even for a seventh realm golden saint.

In just a few blinks of an eye, all the flying mounts of the Profound Heaven Manor and the Mystic Profound Pavilion were all massacred!

Saintess Jian Yuluo gasped as she turned ashen, “Seventh rank profound beasts! Menghao, run! They are equivalent to a seventh realm saint level cultivator…”

Jian Menghao had turned completely ashen but he mustered whatever little courage that he could muster to grab Jin Yuyun, “Maiden Yuyun, we must flee now!”

Jin Yuyun was so panicky at the sight of these Titanic Draconic Beasts that she had dropped her sword. It was only when she was prompted by Jian Menghao that she had regained her composure.

“Where to?”

“Follow me!” Jian Menghao stammered out, trying to be a real hero but whatever brave front that he tried to muster was shaky with fear.

Saintess Jian Yuluo shouted to the two of them, “Follow me!”

Everyone had stopped fighting and was panicky running to the interiors of the mountains!

“Everyone run!”

“Find a cave!”

“Quick!”

“What are you all waiting for?!”

“There is no time to lose!”

Although there were many seventh realm cultivators here and they could easily dispatch a Titanic Draconic Beast but there were actually more than fifty of these powerful desolate beasts around. Therefore it was impossible to fight them all at the same time.

As Yuan Ji grabbed Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue to run along with him, he could not resist a mocking shout to his attackers, “I call this bad karma. There are so many of you after me and now there are so many of these desolate beasts after you!”

Yuan Ji, Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue quickly displayed their extraordinary lightless profound art as they sped hastily into the interiors of the mountains during the confusion.

After passing through several ridges as they flashed across with their full speed, they had finally spotted a cave.

“Hurry, let’s enter this cave for cover.” Yuan Ji said.

He could hear screams that were behind him.

As Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue flashed into the cave, all of a sudden they saw that Yuan Ji was not entering the cave with them.

Yuan Ji shouted to them before he disappeared in the horizon, “I will be back shortly. Don’t worry about me…I will be safe enough…”

Xue Qianxue gasped after him, “Ji Yuan, where are you going?”

Ling Feiyue heaved a soft sigh, “If I am not wrong, he is trying to save Saintess Jian Yuluo.”

Xue Qianxue was startled, “Why should he try to save someone who wants his life?”

“Isn’t it obvious? She must be his ex-girlfriend.” Ling Feiyue replied quietly. “Can’t you see the way that he is looking at her? Even his strokes are a lot slower when he is handling her. I’m very sure that he had ridden her in the past.”

Xue Qianxue: …

Chapter 84: Ambush (1)

Shortly after taking off from Saintess Fang Zhenfei’s flying profound ship, Ling Feiyue asked with a delightful smile. “So where are you planning to go next?”

Yuan Ji was in high spirits as he rubbed his chin, “Hmm, naturally it is to a place that is near to the Lofty World End Peak. We will find a quiet cave to cultivate. I need to fully prepare for my duel with the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace.”

“Ji Yuan…” Xue Qianxue heaved a soft sigh. “Do you think that the three of us will be able to defeat him?”

Ling Feiyue smiled, “I will muster all my golden celestials to have a final showdown with him!”

Yuan Ji frowned, “Have the two of you forgotten what I have said? It is my personal duel. If I die, so be it. None of you shall interfere. Moreover, my odd of winning is 50%.”

Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were pinching him all of a sudden as they chuckled together, “We don’t believe.”

“I’m a great saintess with the True Sacred Saint Profound Art and yet I don’t believe that I even have a 10% chance. Have you forgotten that he has a celestial grade divine sword?” Ling Feiyue inhaled with a deep sigh.

“Although he may have a celestial grade divine sword but I doubt that he can even divine harmonize with it. As for me, I have already achieved a perfect harmony with my heaven grade divine sword.” Yuan Ji pointed out.

Xue Qianxue said quietly, “But you are only an initial saint while he is said to be a peaked seventh realm great saint. The difference between the two of you are too great.”

Yuan Ji smiled weakly, “Profound strength isn’t everything. As long as he cannot kill me outright, my undying fighting spirit will carry me through my fight.”

“This sounds a little forced.” Ling Feiyue said weakly. “Ji Yuan, Qianxue. I can impart to you my True Sacred Saint Profound Art to you.”

Xue Qianxue was startled, “Really sister? Are you sure?”

Ling Feiyue laughed softly, “We are really close sisters. Why not?”

Ji Yuan was suddenly looking at Ling Feiyue curiously, “How did you manage to cultivate to the golden core in such a short time?”

“Actually I do not know as well. I have managed to cultivate to the golden natal core within a month. I find it a little puzzling too. I have cultivated the Pure Core within a week and the Gold Core after three weeks. The Spirit Core is a little difficult. But if I have more time, I should have no problem forming the Spirit Core.”

Yuan Ji really did not believe that it would be so easy.

Xiang Li had suddenly appeared in his soul and she was giggling, “Stop pondering so hard. Let me tell you why. It is because I have cleansed her soul sea of all impurities as the final trial reward. Therefore her cultivation speed is at least a hundred times faster.”

When Yuan Ji heard her, he was shocked. “A hundred times faster? How is it possible?!”

Xiang Li laughed, “That is also your final trial reward too. Therefore you only need slightly a month to form the Gold Core too if you were to cultivate the True Sacred Saint Profound Art.”

Yuan Ji was startled. “I thought that you say that our final trial reward is the revelation of my three past reincarnations with Ling Feiyue?”

Xiang Li was giggling, “You already know that I had lied about that part. What? You are hoping that it is the truth? If it is not for my lie, why do you think Maiden Feiyue is willing to follow you with all her heart? You broke her heart but she has never forgotten about you. Did you know that day when I told her about your three past lifetimes together, her heart was weeping inside and I could even hear it so loud and clear?”

She added with a jovial chuckle. “When you have met her again, why do you think she had said to you that she is willing to follow you to the grave? If she is really upset with you, she won’t say that, am I right?”

“Xiang Li, you know what. I actually feel like kissing your foot. Haha.” Yuan Ji laughed jovially.

“You can kowtow at the same time. I don’t mind.” Xiang Li giggled.

Yuan Ji managed a slight frown, “We have side tracked. Since our rewards are so good then why didn’t you tell us? Why did you make up a story then?”

Xiang Li was suddenly quiet before she sighed solemnly, “I was actually touched by the two of you when you have created a new combined sword art during the final trial. Therefore I had decided to give the two of you a little push with your cultivation. However what I did is against the forbidden laws of the trials as that reward is almost impossible to achieve. Someone actually achieved that reward the other day so I switch both your rewards.”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “I wonder who that unlucky cultivator is?”

Xiang Li pondered for a moment before she answered, “A cultivator by the name of Lu Qingyun.”

Yuan Ji was startled, “I know him…”

“Because of what I did, I can no longer return back to the trials.” Xiang Li said quietly.

Yuan Ji smiled, “Xiang Li, thank you! I will take you around to see many, many interesting things. You won’t be alone. This is my promise to you!”

Xiang Li gasped softly as she stared blankly, “Really?”

Yuan Ji chuckled, “You are the best Xiang Li. Of course I am serious.”

Xiang Li covered her face shyly and she was almost drooling, “I am already imagining all the naked maidens that I will be seeing…”

“Xiang Li! I mean I will take you around to see the fraternity at large. Not naked maidens!” Yuan Ji returned an exasperated look.

All of a sudden Yuan Ji’s divine sense had suddenly alerted him to tens of flying mounts that were lying in ambush around the mountains.

Even Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were alarmed at the same time too.

All of a sudden a powerful sword energy had flashed from the clouds and had killed their flying mount, forcing Yuan Ji, Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue to jump off to the mountains below.

Luckily for them they had not fly too high or else they would have plummet to the bottomless desolate mists below the mountains.

Yuan Ji had immediately unsheathed his divine sword while Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue also did the same.

Immediately they found themselves surrounded by more than thirty golden celestials that had jumped off their flying mounts as they greeted them with their swords!

Yuan Ji could recognize several of them; they were Third Young Master Jian Menghao, Saintess Jian Yuluo, Great Saint Jian Kang the sect master of the Profound Heaven Manor and several of the golden celestials that he had met in the trials with Jian Menghao.

That was not all.

Great Saint Jin Tianzong the sect master of the Mystic Profound Pavilion, Saint Jin Yilong and his daughter Celestial Jin Yuyun were also among the recognized faces!

“Ling Feiyue! You are not going anywhere today!” The cultivators that were surrounding them were shouting.

“Sacred Maiden Xue, we are here to rescue you! Fear not!”

“Who is this dashing man that is with them?”

“Sacred Maiden Xue, why are you drawing your sword against us? We’re on your side!”

Xue Qianxue however replied coldly, “I am afraid that you are not here to rescue me but to obtain Feiyue’s golden natal core, am I right?”

Sect Master Jin Tianzong was smiling, “Sacred Maiden Xue must have misunderstood our intentions. We are here to destroy this demoness here and to avenge the humiliations of the Orthodox Fraternity!”

Sect Master Jian Kang laughed heartily, “That is right.”

Then he grew solemn, “Surely Sacred Maiden Xue isn’t thinking of opposing us?”

Xue Qianxue hummed coldly, “That is right!”

When everyone had heard Xue Qianxue, they were startled by her reply.

At the same time Jian Menghao was smiling at Ling Feiyue, “Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue, I believe that this is the third time that we have met already. So how are you? I am really so blind as not to recognize you when we are in the Lotus Sword Mansion Trials.”

Ling Feiyue did not reply him. Instead she seemed to have completely ignored him. It was because this Jian Menghao was only a fifth realm golden celestial and he was not a real threat to her when compared to the other seventh realm experts that were here.

Jian Menghao said to the rest with a cold smirk. “As for this man, he is Li Yuan! Definitely a good-for-nothing cultivator. Since he is in their company, we should remove him as well!”

After he was forced to commit suicide in the Lotus Sword Mansion, he had managed to find out the name of the man that had caused his party to suffer such a humiliating defeat.

“Aunt. You must seek redress for your nephew today!” He stressed to Jian Yuluo.

Saintess Jian Yuluo was suddenly sighing softly, “Nephew, it is a good thing that you didn’t die when confronting this man that day. Do you know who he is?”

Jian Menghao replied with great haughtiness, “Who cares? He is but an insignificant ant in front of us!”

Jian Yuluo hummed coldly, “Then you are really blind! He is Sword Saint Ji Yuan!”

Jian Menghao and many of the cultivators took small step backward when they had heard her.

“He is Sword Saint Ji Yuan?!”

Many of them had turned ashen. It was because Sword Saint Ji Yuan was the master of the Sword Saintess Ye Chengxi and he had the reputation as the fastest sword in the celestial fraternity.

“No wonder we are all killed by him…” Gongsun Zan gasped out. He was a sixth realm golden celestial and was of the five golden celestials that was ‘killed’ by Ji Yuan in the Lotus Sword Mansion Trials.

Jian Menghao quickly composed himself and said, “Although this Ji Yuan is a saint but my aunt is also a seventh realm sword saintess. Moreover what can he do against so many of us? We have ten saints in our group!”

Saintess Jian Yuluo said coldly to him, “You have better stay clear of our battles. These three are strong opponents.”

Yuan Ji sighed softly as he looked at her, “Yuxian or should I say Saintess Yuluo, how are you?”

Saintess Jian Yuluo replied gently, “I’m fine. How have you been all these years?”

Jian Menghao was startled that his aunt had suddenly become so gentle. A while ago, she was still rebuking him coldly.

Even Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were startled that Yuan Ji and Jian Yuluo were acquaintances.

Yuan Ji heaved a soft sigh, “I am good.”

Saintess Jian Yuluo nodded gently, “It seems that you are now a seventh realm expert now. Good for you.”

Yuan Ji nodded lightly.

“Your opponent today will be me.” Saintess Jian Yuluo said quietly.

As she said that, she was secretly sighing, “Ji Yuan, although I have you to thank for my status as Sword Saintess but I have already used my body to repay you. Therefore we no longer owe each other anything. Now that you have thrown your lot with the unorthodox fraternity, please do not blame me for being ruthless today!”

Yuan Ji did not have any expression nor did he bother to reply to Saintess Jian Yuluo. As a matter of fact, he was unusually calm as he monitored all his opponents at the same time.

Everyone was secretly startled. Two sword saints would soon be dueling against each other!

At the same time the two sect masters of the Profound Heaven Manor and the Mystic Profound Pavilion, Great Saint Jian Kang and Great Jin Tianzong were now looking coldly at Ling Feiyue.

As for Xue Qianxue, Saint Jin Yilong was smiling as he moved to block her. Following him were two saints from the Mystic Profound Pavilion and two saints from the Profound Heaven Manor!

Altogether there were still more than twenty golden celestials that were from the fifth to the sixth realm that were shifting their battle positions around Yuan Ji, Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue as they waited for an opportunity to attack them.

Yuan Ji had a grim expression as the strong cultivators from the two major orthodox clans had them cornered.

“Qianxue, Feiyue. Today we will fight our way through together.” Yuan Ji said with determination as the double halo of his divine sword flashed forth from his sword.

Ling Feiyue said quietly, “It is me that they want…”

Xue Qianxue interrupted her with a soft chuckle, “Sister, if you want to ask us to abandon you then you must be mistaken. They are not getting to you because I will be in their way!”

Yuan Ji turned to look at Ling Feiyue with a grin, “I completely agree with Qianxue on this.”

Ling Feiyue lowered her eyes with a light smile, “Everyone…thank you!”

Chapter 83: Jiajia, is that you?

A lone flying profound ship was cruising across the mountains when a flying divine beast that was manned by three golden celestials had suddenly crash landed on its deck.

These three golden celestials that had dismounted on the deck were Yuan Ji, Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue and they had landed on the profound ship of the Blue Phoenix Sacred Sect.

Immediately the cultivators on the deck had unsheathed their swords to greet the three intruders.

Many of the cultivators on the deck were even more startled when they had recognized that it was Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue.

“Aren’t they fighting with each other only a few days earlier?”

“Why are they together?”

Two golden celestials on the deck immediately asked, “Are you friends or foes?”

Yuan Ji replied, “We are not here to fight. I like to meet Saintess Fang Zhenfei.”

As soon as he had said that, a veiled maiden in blue dress had stepped on the deck with a dozen more cultivators.

Yuan Ji had recognized the veiled maiden in blue dress as Saintess Fang Zhenfei.

He quickly said as he looked nervously at her, “Can I speak with you alone?”

Saintess Fang Zhenfei nodded lightly before she said to all her followers, “Go below the deck. Don’t come up until I give you the orders.”

The dozens of cultivators acknowledged her command and quickly disappeared below the deck.

Once they were all gone, Saintess Fang Zhenfei began to ask. “What can I do for you?”

Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue hastily asked at the same time, “Are you Xia Jiajia?”

Yuan Ji inhaled deeply as he repeated after them, “Are you…Jiajia?”

Saintess Fang Zhenfei looked at Yuan Ji and said indifferently, “What if I am and what if I am not?”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “You are Jiajia. Only Jiajia will have my heritage sword. It is impossible that you’re not Jiajia. And if you are Jiajia then I want you to honor our one hundred year pledge.”

Saintess Fang Zhenfei trembled lightly before she loosened her veil and finally revealed her face.

Yuan Ji was trembling hard, “You are really Jiajia!”

Even Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were gasping with shock, “Saintess Fang is indeed Jiajia.”

Xiang Li was asking excitingly in Yuan Ji’s soul sea and she was drooling, “Who is this extraordinary beautiful maiden? She is the Jiajia that you have been looking for? She is so peerless…”

But Yuan Ji ignored Xiang Li because he was now looking intently at Saintess Fang Zhenfei.

Fang Zhenfei heaved a soft sigh, “I was too careless. I shouldn’t have thrown your heritage sword to Fairy Ye Chengxi.”

“Jiajia!” Yuan Ji stammered, “Do you know that I have been looking everywhere for you? You know that I am Ji Yuan right? Why didn’t you tell me that you have recognized me? Why did you leave all of a sudden? I admit that I was in the wrong for not telling you who I was when we had met again….”

Fang Zhenfei averted her glances as she interrupted him, “Our destiny has ended. It doesn’t matter.”

Yuan Ji was stunned as he stammered, “Our destiny has ended? Tell me this isn’t true. We have a hundred year old pledge!”

“Our hundred year old pledge had already ended.” Saintess Fang Zhenfei reminded him. “Go now and I will pretend that I have never seen the three of you. Do you know that everyone is now hunting for the three of you?”

Yuan Ji sighed bitterly, “Jiajia, I have a duel with the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace in less than a month time. I may not survive the duel so I won’t blame you if you were to decide not to honor our hundred year old pledge.”

Fang Zhenfei smiled indifferently, “Good. I don’t intend to honor our hundred year old pledge anyway. Good luck with your duel then…”

“Jiajia!” Yuan Ji had raised his voice as he took out his divine sword. “This divine sword belongs to you and is your pledge to me…”

Xiang Li was startled, “You’re going to return her the divine sword? Even though I will like to have a beautiful mistress but you should at the very least let me know first…”

Actually Xiang Li did not really want a change of owner. She was only teasing Yuan Ji all the time. The reason why she had chosen to leave with Yuan Ji was because he had teased her when they had first met and she had thought that Yuan Ji was a fun person to be with. If she was really serious about leaving Yuan Ji then they would not have created a perfect divine harmony together.

“But if you want to break off with me then you ought to return my pledge to me or else in this life, you will forever be my consort! If not, this shall be your destiny!” Yuan Ji proclaimed loudly.

When Xiang Li heard him, she muttered with a soft relief. “Lame…”

Fang Zhenfei gasped softly, “Lame.” Then she pointed at Ling Feiyue, “For her, you are willing to break off with her but for me, why are you so insistent?”

Ling Feiyue was flushing all of a sudden and she was averting her bashful eyes when she had heard Fang Zhenfei.

“And how did you know about this?” Yuan Ji grinned. “So you have been keeping tabs on me, am I right? If you are not concerned about me then how do you know so much about me?”

Fang Zhenfei was suddenly gasping and she had suddenly realized that she had a slip of a tongue.

She was suddenly smiling, “If you can survive your duel with the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace then I may consider you. But for now, I don’t want to see you. After all, I don’t want to be your light bulb in front of these two peerless saintesses. Please leave.”

Xue Qianxue said all of a sudden as she hummed, “Hmph! Saintess Fang Zhenfei really knows how to tease us. A hundred years ago you have played us around your finger tips and now you are asking us to leave just like this without offering us any explanations?”

“I have never suspected that ‘Xia Jiajia’ is actually the renowned Saintess Fang Zhenfei that has no interest in the affairs of the fraternity. But it seems that I am greatly mistaken about you.” Ling Feiyue said coldly.

Fang Zhenfei was not upset. She was smiling as she folded her arms, “If you are smart enough, I will suggest for the two of you to leave him. If you accompany him to the Lofty World End Peak, you will never know if the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace will take a liking to the two of you and may even turn you into his cultivation melting cauldron. I’m sure you are smart enough and don’t want me to word it for you.”

Ling Feiyue stared blankly at her and softened her tone, “Jiajia, I am very sure that you did not lie to me a hundred years ago. You actually cares for Ji Yuan, am I right? Why don’t you come with us?”

Fang Zhenfei had turned her back on them, “I am the sect master of the Blue Phoenix Sacred Sect. There is no way that I can give up my status to be with him…”

Yuan Ji interrupted her, “Yet you have given up a hundred years of your time to guard my Orthodox Sword Sect. How do you explain it?”

Fang Zhenfei returned a light smile before she said, “I was foolish and was not thinking straight…”

Yuan Ji inhaled deeply. He really could not believe that Jiajia would be telling him all these fabrications. It was obvious to him that she was lying to him and yet she did not want to tell him the truth. “I don’t believe you. Not a bit. You had made me your elder and even made me the Palace Master of the Emperor Hall Sect. If you don’t have me in your heart then you would not meticulous planned all these for me, am I right? Why did you leave the Emperor Hall Sect without telling me? Something must have happened, am I right?”

Saintess Fang Zhenfei shook her head, “Nothing has happened. Why don’t you focus on your upcoming duel instead?”

Xue Qianxue interrupted coldly, “Jiajia, do you know that he is taking the rap for you to fight the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace? How can you say such things to him now?”

“Then what do you want me to do? Go with him and then become a widow in a month time? Is that what you are suggesting for me?” Saintess Fang Zhenfei hummed softly. “Or are you trying to make use of me to fight the Hundred Flower Divine Palace?”

Xue Qianxue replied frankly, “You are really very smart. Together, we can save Ji Yuan…”

Fang Zhenfei chuckled softly, “No thanks. I have no wish to offend the Hundred Flower Divine Palace for anyone sake. Please leave now…”

All of a sudden Yuan Ji had grabbed her waist, startling her. “Jiajia. After I have defeated the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace, I will come to help you with your difficulties. This is my promise to you.”

Fang Zhenfei gasped, “Let me go. Are you dense or not? We have no future together…”

Yuan Ji interrupted her as he said firmly, “Then proves it. Return my heritage sword to me if that is really what you really wish for.”

“You’re really lame. I have already given your sword to Fairy Ye Chengxi. How do you expect me to return your sword to you?” Fang Zhenfei answered bitterly.

Yuan Ji stared melancholy at her, “Then we’re not breaking up.”

Fang Zhenfei was startled by the firm and melancholy look that were in his gaze.

She did not struggle anymore or pulled his hands off her waist…

After some time she said with trembling lips, “Why are you so silly?”

Yuan Ji grinned, “I have been silly ever since the day that I had met you.”

Fang Zhenfei gasped softly as she averted her eyes away. After a while, she muttered. “I am on something dangerous and I don’t want to involve you. Therefore I can’t tell you what it is. But if you don’t die in a month time, I promise you that I will follow you to the ends of the earth.”

Yuan Ji was delighted as he embraced her tightly, “Really?! This is good!”

Even Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were secretly smiling when they saw the scene.

“Is that a promise?!” Yuan Ji was overjoyed as he asked with a hoarse voice.

“It is a promise.” Fang Zhenfei said with a soft sigh. “Why did I have to know you in the first place?”

“I will surely defeat the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Flower.” Yuan Ji said firmly as he looked at her. “Even though I don’t know your difficulties but please wait for me, Jiajia. I believe you and I know your heart now.”

Fang Zhenfei said gently, “You don’t have to defeat the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Flower. You only have to survive. This is important for you to remember this.”

Yuan Ji nodded, “I will remember this.”

After Yuan Ji had finished, he had taken flight with Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue.

Fang Zhenfei had a bittersweet look as she muttered softly, “Ji Yuan, I guess that I have no other choice but to be struck with you in the future…”

Two maidens had quietly walked to the deck and asked, “Mistress, why didn’t you tell him that you are fighting the Evil Cultivation Palace? Maybe he is able to help you?”

Fang Zhenfei shook her head, “He won’t be able to help. That Old Demon Freak of the Evil Cultivation Palace is now probably the strongest cultivator in existence now. Now that we have folded his plans of obtaining the Sacred Maiden Profound Art, he is probably hopping mad somewhere and his next target will be us.”

“I don’t understand. He is not a maiden or a virgin. Why did he need the Sacred Maiden Profound Art for?” One of the two maidens asked quietly.

“He is trying to reach the ultimate level of his evil cultivation profound art. If I am not wrong then the Sacred Maiden Profound Art happens to contain a breakthrough that he needed. Now that we have folded his plans of obtaining the chastity of Xue Qianxue, he will surely go on the double for the Sacred Maiden Profound Art.” Fang Zhenfei explained.

The evil cultivation divine arts were all heretic arts but sometimes in order to delve into the highest mysteries of their evil divine arts, an opposite pure cultivation profound art was required. The Sacred Maiden Profound Art was the exact opposite.

Then she was smiling, “I have never expected that Zhao Songjin will actually betray the Evil Cultivation Palace. I wish that I can see the looks that are on Little Princess and Old Demon Freak. Maybe the rumors that Han Yuchi and Zhao Songjin are mother and daughter are true after all.”

Chapter 82: A Startling Discovery

Matriarch Han Yuchi was alone in the sacred meditating room of the Celestial Orthodox Sect when she was suddenly alerted to a sudden movement by her extraordinary divine sense.

“Who is that?” She responded sternly.

At the same time she was also slightly startled.

The sacred meditating room was in the inner peaks of the Celestial Orthodox Sect and it was surrounded by many formidable defense arrays. It was almost impossible for a stranger to enter without raising any alarms.

But unfortunately for the intruder, it was impossible to surprise her.

“Master, it is your Xue’Er.” Xue Qianxue had stepped forth from the shadows.

Han Yuchi was startled, “Qianxue, it is really you?” She was suddenly delighted when she saw that it was Xue Qianxue.

Xue Qianxue nodded lightly.

“Aren’t you captured by Ling Feiyue? I’ve been looking all over for you. I’ve even lost your profound signature…”

“I have removed it with the help of Ling Feiyue.” Xue Qianxue said simply.

Han Yuchi was startled, “Why did you remove it for?”

“Because I don’t want to be imprisoned anymore.” Xue Qianxue replied nonchalantly. “From now onward, I am no longer a protégé of the Celestial Orthodox Sect.”

“Qianxue, my Xue’Er. We can discuss over this. You can still retain your Sacred Maiden position. Alright?” Han Yuchi smiled.

The reasons why she was making such a concession now was because after Xue Qianxue had displayed the Sacred Maiden Profound Art to the highest rank, she had become the only sacred maiden in the entire history of the Celestial Orthodox Sect to have achieved this feat.

If Xue Qianxue could become a Great Saintess in the future, the Celestial Orthodox Sect may even have an immortal cultivator among its ranks. Therefore Xue Qianxue was considered to be too precious to be given up now.

“Is that so?” Xue Qianxue said indifferently before she threw a scroll to Han Yuchi. “I am returning the Sacred Maiden Profound Art to the Celestial Orthodox Sect.”

Han Yuchi was startled. “Please consider, will you? Your master misses you.”

Xue Qianxue heaved a soft sigh, “I’m grateful to master for your upbringing and teaching but I have already made up my mind to be with Ji Yuan.”

“Ji Yuan?” Han Yuchi frowned. This name was a little familiar but she could not remember where she had heard of this name before.

“Ji Yuan is actually Yuan Ji. He is the one that you have almost tortured to death!” Xue Qianxue said quietly.

“He is not dead yet?” Han Yuchi was unhappy when she had heard that.

But she was soon humming coldly, “But he will be dead man soon enough. Don’t forget that he has a duel with the Divine Palace Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace. A mere fifth realm cultivator like him isn’t going to survive.”

“Fifth realm cultivator?” Xue Qianxue lit a faint smile. “He is a seventh realm cultivator. He will have a fighting chance.”

Han Yuchi was startled, “He is a saint?” But she soon composed herself to smile coldly, “No one is able to win a duel with the Divine Palace Master. He is dreaming!”

“He is Sword Saint Ji Yuan so he will definitely be able to find a way to win. I have faith in him.” Xue Qianxue said firmly.                                                                                                                           

All of a sudden Han Yuchi had turned ashen. Now she had remembered why she had found Ji Yuan’s name to be so familiar. Sword Saint Ji Yuan was said to be a genius cultivator with the sword and she had long heard of his renown. Moreover he was also Fairy Ye Chengxi’s master.

A seventh realm sword saint was definitely more formidable than most other seventh realm cultivators.

Han Yuchi had suddenly remembered that Ji Yuan had the reputation as the fastest sword in the entire Desolate Celestial Fraternity.

But she was soon humming, “He is nothing but a lecherous man that preys on his own protégés! And now he has even set his sight on my Qianxue!”

Xue Qianxue was not upset. Instead she quietly said, “Master. There is something I ought to let you know. It is about Zhao Songjin. She is no longer a chaste maiden. Therefore she can’t practice the Sacred Maiden Profound Art. Moreover she is also a spy for the Evil Cultivation Palace and she is in cahoots with Jin Yilong. Whether you believe me or not, it is up to your discretion. There are many other moles here that are in cahoots with Zhao Songjin. You won’t be pleased with this. Even the Little Princess of the Evil Cultivation Palace is involved and she is determined to obtain the Sacred Maiden Profound Art.”

Yuan Ji had already told Xue Qianxue all that he knew.

“Really?!” Han Yuchi was horrified. “Songjin is a protégé of the Evil Cultivation Palace?!”

But before she could question Xue Qianxue further, she had already left quietly.

Han Yuchi was left to stammer with shock, “This is impossible…and she is in cahoots with the Mystic Profound Pavilion as well…”

After a while she decided to look for Zhao Songjin.

A holy maiden panicky asked her, “Matriarch, where are you going?”

Han Yuchi stared coldly at her, “Who are you to question me? Don’t tell me that you are going to inform Zhao Songjin on my whereabouts?”

The holy maiden quickly kneeled down, “Your protégé dares not.”

“Then you shall knee here until I am back.”

Then she turned to say to the dozens of holy maidens in the vicinity. “None of you shall make a move too! Or don’t blame me for dealing you the sect punishments on the spot!”

With that she had hurried to Zhao Songjin’s abode.

Zhao Songjin and Jin Yilong were laughing as they played on the bed.

And this playing required that they had no clothing on them.

“Yilong, you are really so bold. You dare to come to my abode in the middle of the night.” Zhao Songjin gasped with pleasures as she teased Jin Yilong. Then she said dreamily, “But I’m so glad that you have come.”

“Haha, you have really missed me. Don’t you?” Jin Yilong said proudly.

Then he said, “It is really just a pity that Ling Feiyue ruins your sacred maiden ceremony or else I will be banging the sacred maiden now.”

“What is the hurry? Sooner or later I will be the sacred maiden and I will be in full control of the Celestial Orthodox Sect.” Zhao Songjin was smiling. “If Xue Qianxue isn’t found in another seven days, I will be the sacred maiden anyway. So let’s hope that she is killed by Ling Feiyue…”

“Songjin, what are you doing?!” It was Han Yuchi and she had barged into the bed chamber all of a sudden, shocking Zhao Songjin and Jin Yilong at the same time as they turned ashen with fright.

Zhao Songjin quickly covered herself with the blanket as she stared blankly. Why was there no one to inform her that the Matriarch was here? Were all her informers sleeping?

Jin Yilong was panicky, “Matriarch Han, I can explain…”

Han Yuchi interrupted coldly, “Where is there to explain about your misdeed? Jin Yilong! I have always known that you are a lecherous man but you can even be so bold as to sneak into my Celestial Orthodox Sect!”

Jin Yilong had turned ashen and he was trembling. He had known that Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi’s temper was fiery. Moreover she was also a great saintess while he was only an initial tier saint. If she wanted to kill him, it would be all too easy.

But to his surprise Han Yuchi said to him coldly, “You may leave first. Make sure no one knows about it!”

Jin Yilong was startled that Han Yuchi was letting him off so easily. Without saying a word more, he quickly grabbed his clothes and ran off!

Zhao Songjin was secretly hurt by his gesture as she silently sighed. “How can he so heartless? He didn’t even take a single glance at me when he is running away…”

“Songjin!” Han Yuchi had returned her cold gaze upon her. “I know that you are a protégé of the Evil Cultivation Palace. How dare you infiltrate the Celestial Orthodox Sect! To think that I have trusted you all these years!”

When Zhao Songjin heard her, her beautiful eyes were startled and she had turned completely white. Even though she was a middle tier saintess but against her matriarch, she was just a speck of dust. 

Against the profound might of her matriarch’s Sacred Maiden Profound Art, she was really helpless. Moreover she had not fully recovered from her injuries from her exchange with Ling Feiyue.

In that instant, the cold gaze of her matriarch had caused her to wet her bed and Zhao Songjin was truly frightened.

“You have two choices now. Leave the Evil Cultivation Palace or die.” Han Yuchi said coldly to her and her profound aura had completely suppressed Zhao Songjin.

Han Yuchi continued, “If you are willing to leave the Evil Cultivation Palace, you can rest assure that you will still become the next Sacred Maiden and I will even give you the blessings to marry Jin Yilong. What do you think?”

“I know that there are many moles of the Evil Cultivation Palace in here and even Little Princess is involved.”

Zhao Songjin stared blankly at Han Yuchi in shock. How did her matriarch know so much?

“Your mission to obtain the Sacred Maiden Profound Art will only end up in failure and you will be punished. It is because only a chaste maiden can practice the Sacred Maiden Profound Art.” Han Yuchi added coldly.

Zhao Songjin was startled at this revelation and was speechless. After so many centuries of planning, she could not even practice the Sacred Maiden Profound Art even if she had the cultivation method in her hands?

Finally she stammered weakly, “I can still be the sacred maiden if I betray the Evil Cultivation Palace?”

“Absolutely.” Han Yuchi replied her. “Make your choice now.”

After a short hesitation Zhao Songjin trembled and said weakly, “I don’t wish to die. I will betray the Evil Cultivation Palace…”

“Good! You are my worthy protégé.” Han Yuchi smiled.

Chapter 81: Yuan Ji vs. the Two Goddess Maiden

Ling Feiyue had led Yuan Ji and Xue Qianxue to a nearby desolate mountain peak.

“We shall land here first.” Ling Feiyue said.

At the same time she said to her followers, “I still need your help to lead our pursuers away from us. I thank the efforts of everyone that is with me today. I will return my gratitude to everyone in the future.”

But her followers were all shouting fervently, “It is our duty and honor to serve our Dark Mistress!”

With that they had quickly flown away.

Yuan Ji was startled, “We are still in the vicinity of the Holy Maiden Peaks. Is it safe here?”

It was because he could see seven large profound aerial ships that were accompanied by hundreds of flying mounts that were in hot pursue of them.

Ling Feiyue returned a gentle smile as she shook her head, “Definitely not safe.”

“Then why?” Yuan Ji asked curiously.

Xue Qianxue chuckled softly, “I need Feiyue’s help to remove the profound tracer that my master has planted within my soul sea or else we won’t be able to get far.”

When Yuan Ji heard her, he understood immediately.

“Also there is a hot spring here, heh! I will like to take a dip in the hot spring for a while.” Xue Qianxue winked at him. “It may take a few hours. Why don’t you find a spot to rest first?”

Yuan Ji had suddenly remembered that Xue Qianxue liked to dip herself in a bathtub for long hours.

“Alright.” He said with a weak smile. He did not expect Xue Qianxue to have the mood for a hot spring dip at this critical time.

“Feiyue, let me show you this hot spring that I had mentioned to you before. The waters are really fragrance and you will surely love it as much as I do!”

Ling Feiyue nodded gently before she turned to Yuan Ji to give a stern look, “No peeking.”

Yuan Ji was half amused, “I am a man of culture. This is beneath me. Don’t forget that I am also renowned as the Gentleman of the Sword…”

“And you have peeped at Qianxue a hundred years ago?” Ling Feiyue frowned with disbelief.

“I was forced to do so and you should know.” Yuan Ji quickly said with great awkwardness.

Xue Qianxue was flushing shyly as she grabbed Ling Feiyue away, “Let’s go! That is all in the past now. Come, we have many things to catch up on.”

Removing the profound tracer was extremely easy now that Ling Feiyue was here. It would only take mere minutes given their combined profound strength. Xue Qianxue was actually very eager to find out from Ling Feiyue how she had managed to find Ji Yuan again.

Actually Ling Feiyue was also eager to find out about Xue Qianxue’s accounts.

Yuan Ji pretended to be indifferent as he watched the two of them walked away. When they were out of his sight, he began to mutter silently. “I wonder if Feiyue is still upset with me?”

He really had fond memories when he was with Ling Feiyue in the Lotus Sword Mansion. He had not expected that he would see her so soon again. But he was reluctant to reveal his feelings for her.

He began to rub his chin as he mumbled, “They are actually friends? Now this is really unexpected.”

All of a sudden he was frowning, “Did Qianxue say to Feiyue that they have many things to catch up on? I wonder what they will be gossiping about?”

“What if they are talking behind my back?”

Xiang Li had suddenly popped into his soul sea as she suggested excitingly, “Why don’t we go and take a look?”

Yuan Ji frowned coldly, “They are having a dip in the hot spring. This isn’t a good idea. Moreover I’m a Gentleman of the Sword.”

“If you keep your sword then you are not a Gentleman of the Sword anymore.” Xiang Li chuckled.

“Don’t be lame, alright?” Yuan Ji rebuked her unhappily. “I will never do such a thing…”

Xiang Li began to look dejected and had a disappointing look. But just as she was about to fade away, Yuan Ji suddenly said. “Xiang Li, do you think that Feiyue is really a maiden or a man? What if I am made a cuckold? I should check on them, am I right?”

“That is right! What are you waiting for? Go! Go!” Xiang Li exclaimed excitingly and her eyes were beaming with great anticipations.

Yuan Ji did not need any further prompting and he was soon flashing in the direction where Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue had disappeared earlier.

Soon he was up onto the cliff and had spotted Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue in the hot spring.

Xiang Li asked curiously, “Why did you go so far away for?”

Yuan Ji grinned, “They are all high level saintess. This distance is safe.”

“But didn’t you say that you want to hear what they are gossiping about?” Xiang Li said unhappily.

“That is secondary. The most important thing is to find out if Feiyue is a maiden or not.” Yuan Ji was already drooling as he said to Xiang Li. It was because it was too obvious that Ling Feiyue was a maiden as he watched the two goddess maidens.

Xiang Li was also drooling as she watched the two maidens in the hot spring, “Alas, I really don’t know which one to choose to be my new mistress…”

“Well Xiang Li, I’m sorry to disappoint you but you are struck with me now. We have a perfect divine harmony, you know.” Yuan Ji pointed out.

“Yes but soon you will be dead and I need to find myself a new owner.” Xiang Li chuckled.

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

“Before I die, I will tell the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace that I have a sentient divine sword. I’m sure that he will be really interested in you.”

“Eeekkkk!” Xiang Li was horrified by the thought.

Yuan Ji was soon quietly looking at the two maidens and he was soon in his own thoughts. There was nothing dirty in his mind at the moment and he was just appreciating the two great beauties.

He was actually paying more attention to Ling Feiyue and was looking at her every expression.

It was because although he had broken up with her but half of his heart was actually unwilling to do so. Therefore he wanted to know if she was really upset with him.

“Is she upset with me or not? She is obviously cold toward me earlier but why did she say that she still like me and will even be following me to the grave?” He was sighing. Sometimes he did not understand women and their hearts which were often full of contradictions.

“Maybe she is just trying to break Qianxue’s heart because she obviously knows that we are together? But Qianxue doesn’t seem to be angry with her. As a matter of fact, they seem to be getting quite well along. Hmm, I wonder what they are chatting about?”

“Maybe we should go take a closer look?” Xiang Li offered a suggestion as she gave him a helpful and innocent look.

But instead of replying to her, Yuan Ji had actually walked away!

He began to find a quiet spot under a tree to meditate. Although it appeared that he was meditating but he was actually thinking of Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue at the same time.

“They are really best friends?”

But after sorting out his thoughts, he had finally decided that he must not reciprocate Ling Feiyue at all costs. It was because he was afraid that she may decide to challenge the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Flower after his death. Worse, she may even drag Xue Qianxue into it.

“Ling Feiyue may be a gentle maiden but her guts are really bold as the iron guts of a donkey.”

Now that he had finally sorted out his thoughts, he felt more at peace with himself. 

But after meditating for three hours, he was starting to curse. “Are they ducks? They are actually in the hot spring for so long?”

As he cursed them halfway, he could hear their approach and they were giggling at the same time.

He soon saw them holding hands together and his heart was suddenly pounding rapidly at their dazzling beauty. “This is too sinful.” He thought.

Xue Qianxue asked him all of a sudden, “Ji Yuan, what are you planning to do next?”

Yuan Ji did not want to lie to her so he replied, “I am going back to the Celestial Orthodox Sect. It is because I think that Saintess Fang Zhenfei is Xia Jiajia. I need to talk to her first before my duel.”

“You are going to be a dead man soon and yet you are still thinking of her? What a romantic cultivator.” Ling Feiyue hummed coldly. “Are you thinking of rekindling your romantic relationship with her?”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “Actually I dare not. I just want to hear her explanation. If not I can’t focus fully on my duel.”

“I do have a way for you to win your duel with the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace. Do you want to know?” Ling Feiyue asked him coolly.

Yuan Ji raised his eyes before asking curiously. “You have a way? What is it?”

“Why don’t you seduce the two saintesses from the Hundred Flower Divine Palace and request for their aids? They can be your spies in the Hundred Flower Divine Palace. At the very least, they may even reveal the weaknesses of the divine arts of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace to you.”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “You are asking me to seduce two innocent maidens so that I can make use of them to win the duel? I guess that you don’t know me well enough. I will never do anything like this…”

Ling Feiyue interrupted him coldly, “Oh, is that so? I have heard the three of you very loud and clear when you are in bed together.”

Yuan Ji: …

He had a stunned thought, “She didn’t leave that night?”

“You must be mistaken. I have actually kicked them off my bed that very night.” He said with great righteousness. This was the truth. He did kick them off his bed that very night and did not do anything to them.

“Then can you make a blood oath that you did not have any relationships with them at all?” Ling Feiyue stared at him coldly.

Yuan Ji: …

Although he did not have any relationship with them that night but he did have several relationships with them over the next couple of months. So how could he make a blood oath on this?

All of a sudden he had an idea, “I can make a blood oath that I did not have a relationship with them that night.”

Xue Qianxue chuckled softly as she interrupted him, “Why make a blood oath for that night? Maybe Sister Feiyue is mistaken that night. Why don’t you make a blood oath that you didn’t touch them ever. This is more believable.”

Yuan Ji: …

Finally he returned a resigned soft, “It is against my Dao to make use of them to win a duel.”

Ling Feiyue nodded and said gently, “Finally you are willing to speak the truth.”

“I am always speaking the truth.” Yuan Ji said with a straight face. “When did I ever lie to you?”

“You say that you are only toying with me. Is that the truth?” Ling Feiyue was suddenly looking at him with bleary tears. “I want you to say it again in front of my Sister Qianxue so that she will know what kind of a person are you.”

Yuan Ji was completely stupefied by her question.

He had a light tremble as he looked at her. Finally he was laughing bitterly and he was clenching his fists, “Yes, I lie. So what? You deserve a better cultivation partner.”

Then he turned to look at Xue Qianxue, “Qianxue, I was too reckless back then. If I can return to the past, I will never lay my hands on you…”

Xue Qianxue put her fingers on his cheek as she caressed him gently with a tender smile, “I don’t regret it. Why are you regretting? I have a good news for you. I am carrying your child now.”

When Yuan Ji had heard her, he was stunned. “What?!”

Xue Qianxue nodded as she tenderly place her fingers on her belly, “I have temporary suppressed the growth of our child with my profound strength.”

“Aren’t you glad?” She turned to Yuan Ji to ask him tenderly.

Yuan Ji stammered, “I am glad. Very glad. This…this is too sudden…”

“But alas, I may not have the chance to see my child.” He began to lament softly.

“We will bring this child up.” Xue Qianxue smiled.

“We?” Yuan Ji had a perplexed look as he looked at her.

“Sister Feiyue and I will bring our child up.” Xue Qianxue smiled. “Therefore you have to take us as your consorts.”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “It will be unfair to Feiyue. Why don’t we discuss this after my duel with the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace…”

Xue Qianxue had suddenly moved her fingers from his face and he could suddenly feel her profound strength behind his back as she chuckled softly, “Ji Yuan, today you are not going anywhere until you have bowed before the Heavens and the Earth to take the two of us as your consorts. Even though you may be able to handle one of us alone but I can promise you that with Sister Feiyue and I together, we are more than enough to handle you. Therefore if you are thinking of running away or even thinking of resisting us, you can very well forget about it.”

Ling Feiyue smiled gently, “A hundred years ago, you have managed to escape from us but we can promise you that in this desolate mountain peak, you have nowhere to run. And don’t think of even trying to get to my flying mount before us because she only listens to me.”

Yuan Ji: …

Xue Qianxue giggled, “From today onward, you have to follow our rules for you or else you can’t blame us for being impolite to our lord. What do you say?”

Yuan Ji smiled bitterly, “Say whatever you want. Even though I want to protest but you can’t expect me to thrash the mother of my child, am I right?”

“Good!” Xue Qianxue clapped her hands delightfully. “From today onward, you are not to mention your beard or entertain any lofty thoughts of getting back your ugly beard again. You shall stay beardless forever.”

Yuan Ji said with great indignant, “You can insult me but you cannot insult my beautiful beard! I can take the two of you as my consorts but you have to follow my rules. After all, I am an alpha male. I can’t allow the two of you to trample upon my pride just like this…”

Ling Feiyue giggled softly, “Sister Qianxue, did you hear that? He is willing to take the two of us as his consorts today as long as we listen to his house rules.”

“Yes, I did.” Xue Qianxue giggled as she looked at Yuan Ji wryly. “From today onward, we will be your consorts.”

Yuan Ji was stunned when he had heard them. Did he just fall into their cleverly worded speech and now he had to take them as his consorts?

“By the way…” She winked at him. “In case you do not know. There is no remedy for your beard if you have lost your beard during your bodily transformation. In all the ancient celestial texts, there are no remedies at all. Therefore please stop thinking about your ugly beard for goodness sake!”

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji was stunned by the bad news that was revealed to him.

Soon after, a rather dejected Yuan Ji had taken Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue as his consorts as they bowed before the Heavens and the Earth.

“May the Heavens and the Earth be our witnesses. I, Ji Yuan, hereby take Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue as my beloved consorts…”

Yuan Ji did not stay dejected for too long. It was because he was very happy that very night as he shared a makeshift bed with the two goddess maidens.

The happiest person was not Yuan Ji, Xue Qianxue or Ling Feiyue as they finally resolved all their differences and misunderstanding but it was actually Xiang Li who was watching their battles throughout the night.

“Feiyue, didn’t I break your heart? Why are you still willing to forgive me?” Yuan Ji asked curiously.

“Because we have an unhappy past three lifetimes. I hope for a happier ending for us in this lifetime.” Ling Feiyue smiled shyly.

Yuan Ji: …

“This is actually Xiang Li’s lies…” He had decided to keep this in his heart.

“This is too intense for me to take…and too sinful….” Xiang Li giggled throughout the night.

Chapter 80: Ling Feiyue vs. Xue Qianxue (2)

Xue Qianxue repeated coldly as her golden eyes flashed across the great hall, “I don’t wish to say again. Anyone that wants to fight Ling Feiyue has to fight with me first!”

Now that Xue Qianxue had warned everyone not to interfere in her duel, the cultivators from the seven major orthodox clans began to hesitate.

When they saw that the thirty odd unorthodox golden celestials on Ling Feiyue were also pointing their swords at them, everyone decided to adopt a wait and see approach first.

After all, no one would like to have a taste of Xue Qianxue’s ninth rank Sacred Maiden Profound Art first and moreover they would also be attacked by the thirty odd golden celestials that were on Ling Feiyue’s side.

Ling Feiyue giggled softly, “Qianxue, this hall is a little too small for us. I don’t want to be accused of destroying your sect’s great hall and I am too poor to pay for the damages. Why don’t we fight outside?”

When she had said that, Ling Feiyue and her followers had flashed out of the great hall without waiting for Xue Qianxue to reply her.

Before anyone could advise Xue Qianxue, she had already followed Ling Feiyue outside in a blink of an eye!

Immediately tens of thousands of cultivators from the bronze seats had all followed suit. After all, no one wanted to miss the epic duel that was between these two beautiful saintesses!

Yuan Ji was naturally one of the first to dash out of the hall; he really did not want to see either one of them got killed by the other.

When he was outside, he was just in time to see Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue had already raised their palms and they were already charging headlong against each other!

Even though he was unwilling to let the two maidens see him at the same time or he would be caught in a situation that he could not explain and may even have a disastrous consequence but if he did not intervene now, these two maidens would be soon be on each other throat. One of them may die or even both!

Out of desperation, he flashed into their midst as he swung his divine sword.

“Qianxue, Feiyue! Stop!”

Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were power cultivators and if Yuan Ji did not display his divine sword to ward off their profound powers, he would be killed by them in the next instant. And he could tell that they were using 100% of their profound strength in order to raise their profound arts to its highest level.

There was a divine rainbow halo around Yuan Ji divine sword as he raised his sword energies to the highest level that he could muster. This was the result of the divine harmony with his divine sword. All of a sudden there was a double halo around his divine sword that startled all the onlookers, including Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue.

Usually if a cultivator had managed to divine harmonize with their divine sword, there would only be a single halo. A single halo was hard enough and for a divine sword to have double halo, the cultivator must be completely be one with his sword.

Now this was easily said than done and that was why it was actually a miracle to see it happening before their very eyes now.

Divine swords have their own sentient and every divine sword is unique. Although one may be one with the sword but to be in perfect harmony with their divine sword, it is still nearly an impossible thing.

Some divine swords were forged thousands of years ago and it was impossible for their new owner to truly know exactly what their divine swords had been through. Because of the lack of empathy for their divine swords, it was considered an impossible thing to create a double halo even though it had been theorized by many of the ancient sages in the past.

Even Yuan Ji was quite startled that his divine sword suddenly had a double halo when he was displaying it.

“I and Xiang Li are one? This is the Perfect Divine Harmony?”

Xiang Li chuckled shyly, “That’s right. I know that you want to bang Feiyue and Qianxue.”

Yuan Ji could not believe what he was hearing from his soul sea but he could not resist an exasperated reply to Xiang Li, “What is this going to do with you…”

Xiang Li laughed, “We are in perfect harmony on this.”

Yuan Ji: …

When Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue saw the double halo of a divine sword that was wielded by a bearded man in front of them, they were quite startled but they had also immediately saw through his disguise in the next instant.

Ling Feiyue was very familiar with Yuan Ji’s divine sword and his attack posture while Xue Qianxue could never forget his familiar voice that was full of tenderness.

“Ji Yuan!” Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue stammered out at the same time as they quickly withdrew their fists when they were almost upon each other.

“Why are you here?” Both maidens said at the same time.

Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were startled that they were asking Ji Yuan the exact thing.

“She knows you?” Again, the two maidens had said the exact same thing.

Ling Feiyue, Xue Qianxue: …

Yuan Ji stammered, “There is no time to explain now. Before the cultivators from the seven major orthodox clans are here, I must take Qianxue away. As for you, Feiyue…I want you to quickly flee the scene.”

The thousands of cultivators from the bronze, silver and gold seats were still coming out of the great hall in their thousands and they were blocking the helpless cultivators from the prestige seats that were still struck inside.

Xue Qianxue was delighted, “Ji Yuan, you are here for me?”

Ling Feiyue said melancholy as she looked a little lost at Yuan Ji, “It is no wonder why you didn’t want to tell me…”

Yuan Ji quickly said, “Hurry, we must all leave now! This is a perfect opportunity for us all to escape. I will explain later…”

All of a sudden Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue had ignored Yuan Ji as they suddenly slammed their palms together with a thunderous impact that created a powerful shockwave around them.

At the same time the thirty odd air borne unorthodox cultivators were all throwing bombs from their flying mounts that exploded into dark smog at the open space platform that they were at!

Very soon, the entire platform was shrouded in dark smog and all the orthodox cultivators were startled.

“What is going on?”

“I can’t see anything at all…”

“Even my divine sense can’t penetrate through this dark smog…”

“Ling Feiyue is too despicable! She knows that she can’t win Xue Qianxue and she is playing dirty!”

When the dark smog had landed, Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue had both grabbed Yuan Ji at the same time as they flashed to Ling Feiyue’s flying mount that was stationary nearby!

Yuan Ji was startled by their co-ordinated movements and they were soon in the air in the next blink of an eye.

“This? What is going on?” Yuan Ji was looking a little stupefied.

Xue Qianxue giggled softly, “Feiyue is here to rescue me. That’s why.”

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji stammered for words, “I thought that the two of you have a feud with each other?”

Xue Qianxue winked at him, “Ever since our duel a hundred years ago, we have since become the best of friends.”

Yuan Ji was stunned, “Best of friends?!”

Xue Qianxue smiled, “That’s right. I have requested for her to help me. But I have not really expected Feiyue will be so bold as to really come.”

Ling Feiyue said quietly, “If I have not come then I will never know that Ji Yuan will actually be here to rescue you. So how did the two of you meet again?”

Xue Qianxue laughed softly, “And how did you manage to find him too?”

Ling Feiyue averted her eyes, “It is a long story. I tell you when we have landed.”

Xue Qianxue turned to Yuan Ji to ask shyly, “Ji Yuan, I may no longer be able to return to the Celestial Orthodox Sect. If I become an unorthodox cultivator, will you still love me as before?”

Ling Feiyue sarcastically interrupted, “He won’t want to be with you. Because he will tell you that the two of you are from different worlds and can never be together.”

When Yuan Ji heard her, he could only manage a bitter smile. It was because that was what he had told Ling Feiyue before they had broken up.

But to Xue Qianxue he replied firmly, “No matter, I will not leave you or despise you.”

When Ling Feiyue heard him, she was trembling lightly and looked away while Xue Qianxue was looking at Yuan Ji with an emotional sentimental look.

“So the two of you are actually working together?” Yuan Ji asked curiously.

Xue Qianxue nodded.

She soon explained to him that Ling Feiyue would purposely challenge her to a duel and as soon as they were outside, they would begin their exit plans. The signal for action would be when they had first clashed against each other. That was why the minute that Ling Feiyue’s followers were outside, they had actually taken flight and were waiting for the signal to happen so that they could throw down the smog bombs.

When Yuan Ji had heard their plans, he could not help praising their plans. “It is actually much more brilliant than my own plans. But this plan has a flaw. The executor must have an iron gut to storm the Celestial Orthodox Sect and must be prepared for all the possible contingencies. In reality, this plan is actually extremely risky to complete.”

Then he added with as soft sigh, “Ling Feiyue is actually willing to risk her life for you?”

Xue Qianxue chuckled softly, “We are the best of friends.”

Ling Feiyue had suddenly turned around to say with bleary eyes, “Maybe after today, we may no longer be the best of friends. I like Ji Yuan and I want to be with him.”

Xue Qianxue was startled, “Feiyue, you…”

But she was soon smiling to her, “We did say that no matter who manage to find him first, we will always be the best of friends. Have you forgotten about it?”

Ling Feiyue: …

Yuan Ji lamented bitterly, “What for? I will soon be a dead man in a month time.”

Ling Feiyue stared at him with a firm look, “Then I shall follow you to your grave!”

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Xue Qianxue was startled but she was soon smiling, “No matter, we are still the best of friends or else why will you come for me?”

Then she turned to say to Yuan Ji shyly, “You have really come for me. So what is your plan?”

Yuan Ji replied awkwardly, “Actually my plan is very simple and not worth mentioning.”

Ling Feiyue could not resist a soft chuckle, “I bet that he is probably going to be a dead man if his plan had been followed through.”

Yuan Ji frowned before he said shamelessly, “Not really. With my skills, I will probably thrash all my opponents and rescue Qianxue.”

Xue Qianxue took a look at his straight face before she chuckled jovially, “You sound like you do not have a plan at all.”

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

Yuan Ji: …

“I do have a plan. While I distract everyone, Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue will rescue you.” He pointed out with an awkward look. “But before I can execute my plan, it is interrupted by Feiyue. If not, you will be able to witness my plan.”

“How do you plan on getting yourself out of the great hall?” Xue Qianxue asked him curiously. “Are you really going to thrash all the thousands of cultivators?”

Yuan Ji rubbed his chin as he said shamelessly, “Of course I am. To rescue you, I am willing to do anything.”

“And that includes lying?” Xue Qianxue chuckled as she held onto her belly.

Even Ling Feiyue was laughing jovially when she had heard Xue Qianxue.

Yuan Ji: …

“Naturally I do have my trump cards but I am not sharing.”

When he saw that Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were still laughing at him, he added bitterly. “If I have thirty golden celestials under my leadership and enough wealth to buy a flying mount, I can definitely come up with an even more impressive plan.”

Xiang Li was also laughing jovially in his soul sea, “Shameless…you’re too shameless…”

Yuan Ji said to Xiang Li with a straight face, “I can only tell you that my rescue plan has been a great success. After all, we have got Qianxue out now.”

Chapter 79: Ling Feiyue vs. Xue Qianxue (1)

“I am no longer Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue but Demoness Ling Feiyue. This will be my celestial title in the future when I run rampage in the Orthodox Fraternity. Be sure to remember my new celestial title and live in fear of my name!”

Xiang Li was startled as she said to Yuan Ji, “Look what you have done to her. You broke her heart and turn her into Demoness!”

Yuan Ji muttered back, “Whose side are you on?”

“Of course it is with Ling Feiyue!”

Yuan Ji: …

“What arrogance…”

“Although she is a pretty face but we should teach her a lesson…”

“We are many and they are few…”

“I can already imagine the peerless Ling Feiyue bending under my knees…”

“What did you just say?”

“I mean…erm…begging us for mercies under our knees…”

“It isn’t entirely honorable for so many of us to fight her alone. Actually the Celestial Orthodox Sect is more than enough to handle her…”

Ling Feiyue maintained an indifferent gaze as she turned to Xue Qianxue and said, “Qianxue, no long no meet! Do you remember that we have an unfinished duel a hundred years ago?”

“So you have come to challenge me today?” Xue Qianxue chuckled and instantly her cuteness level broke the 100% level, sending many of the cultivators in a dreamy daze as they watched her.

“Why else should I be here? Come with me or else I will demolish the whole place.” Ling Feiyue giggled softly, causing the hearts of the cultivators to melt. How could any maiden smile the way that she had smiled, stirring the passions of the male cultivators.

The sight of the two peerless goddesses making their exchanges caused many of the cultivators, including the females to be stupefied at their many expressions.

Xue Qianxue smiled. “In that case, I will accept your duel…”

“Outrageous!” Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi slammed her fist on the table as she interrupted Xue Qianxue. “Qianxue, you are not going anywhere and you are not accepting any duels today.”

Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi pointed her fingers at Ling Feiyue, “Since you have dared to come here then don’t blame me for not showing you any mercy…”

Ling Feiyue hummed coldly as she interrupted her, “So the orthodox cultivators are just a batch of cowards? I can see that Xue Qianxue is actually just a coward that refuses to honor our agreed duel. Instead she is trying to use a cultivation retreat to hide away from me? What a joke! You have even come up with a leadership change just to hide yourself from me. Hmph!”

Xue Qianxue frowned, “Who says I am afraid of you? We can settle our feud today.”

When Xue Qianxue was frowning melancholy, her adorable level broke the 110% barrier and all the young masters that were pursuing her were all delighted.

Third Young Master Jian Menghao was completely captivated by Xue Qianxue and he was muttering, “She is too peerless. Fear not Qianxue, I will take your place in your duel…”

Saintess Jian Yuluo turned to say coldly at him, “Menghao, be quiet. Don’t let the others hear you. You’re not Ling Feiyue’s match. She can kill you instantly with her Six Realms Divine Art.”

“Six Realms Divine Art?” Jian Menghao muttered as he took a perplexed look at his Celestial Teacher.

“That is her internal profound art. This divine art is among the top ten internal profound arts. Today she carries a strong killing intention. She isn’t here to play.” Saintess Jian Yuluo said as she took a sip.

Jian Menghao began to say panicky, “Celestial Teacher, you’re a Sword Saintess and a seventh realm expert. You must help Qianxue…”

“Just watch. Ling Feiyue isn’t going to win against everyone here even if I did not intervene. The Celestial Orthodox Sect is more than enough to handle her.” Saintess Jian Yuluo interrupted him with an indifferent look.

Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi had raised her voice to say maliciously, “Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue! You’ve dared to come to my Celestial Orthodox Sect to create a din. Today I will make sure that you do not leave the Celestial Orthodox Sect!”

“Oh? So your personal protégé can’t defeat me and the master has come to teach me a lesson? So this is the way of the orthodox cultivators. You are all nothing but cowards!” Ling Feiyue rebuked gently.

The way she was rebuking Han Yuchi had caused her enticing beauty to break through the 110% level with the many cultivators. It was because her voice was really too soft and gentle.

When Yuan Ji saw Ling Feiyue rebuking Han Yuchi in such a mild and cultured manner, he was smiling bitterly. “Feiyue, do you know how to raise your voice or not? No one will treat you seriously when you can’t even rebuke them with an angry voice. You have made a dramatic entrance but now you have become a laughing stock…”

Xiang Li interrupted him, “Actually I feel that Feiyue voice is alright. Although her voice is soft but the clarity of her voice can be heard clearly by everyone because of her strong internal profound strength. Her voice is really so sexy…”

Yuan Ji muttered, “Too sexy to feel threaten by her, in fact…”

Ling Feiyue smiled, “I will give you two options. Admit that the profound skills of the Celestial Orthodox Sect are inferior to the Spirit Blue Moon Sect then I will leave peacefully. Or else have Xue Qianxue to accept my challenge to her immediately!”

“Outrageous!” Han Yuchi rebuked back strongly. This Ling Feiyue had actually had the audacity to issue an ultimatum to the Celestial Orthodox Sect.

Zhao Songjin saw that the matriarch was displeased so she was also shouting. “Outrageous!”

Immediately she had flashed forward with her earth-step divine sword. “Ling Feiyue! This saintess here will teach you a lesson that you will remember forever in your heart…”

All of a sudden Ling Feiyue had swung her sword forward and there was a white light that was like a coiling dragon that had burst forth from her sword and it had struck the startled Zhao Songjin as it threw her violently back to her starting point!

Zhao Songjin had to scurry hastily ten steps backward before she could steady her steps, thrusting her sword onto the ground at the same time as she bent forward with an astonished look. She coughed out a bout of blood at the same time as she inhaled deeply.

All the cultivators presented were also astonished by the attack that was displayed by Ling Feiyue!

It was because the attack that was displayed by Ling Feiyue was clearly not a sword energy attack but a profound power attack. Many of the cultivators had never known that a profound power would have such range and devastating effect!

“What is this sword art?”

“I have never seen anything like this before?”

“Did you see that?!”

Zhao Songjin knew that Ling Feiyue was not a sword energy practitioner and therefore she had not prepared any profound defense when she was charging forward. If not given her cultivation strength as a middle tier seventh realm saintess, she would be able to ward off Ling Feiyue’s attack completely.

While everyone could not recognize Ling Feiyue’s sword art but Yuan Ji had recognized it as a sword art that they had created together…

Zhao Songjin gasped with a shock look, “What is this sword art?”

Ling Feiyue smiled with great tenderness as she looked at the reflection of her sword, “Heaven Light of the Coiling Dragon.” Then she muttered quietly. “I wonder if he likes this name? He didn’t answer me if he likes it or not…”

Although her mutterings were soft but Yuan Ji could hear her clearly. After all he was in the bronze seats which were near the main entrance and moreover he was also a seventh realm saint.

He muttered silently, “I like…”

Zhao Songjin naturally was not about to give up after such a small setback. This time she had surrounded herself with her profound power as she displayed a bright golden animus.

She was a proud middle tier saintess and the future Sacred Maiden Zhao Songjin. She would never admit that she was beneath Ling Feiyue or Xue Qianxue!

Therefore she started to display her newly attained eighth level of the Beautiful Maiden Swordplay the Golden Maiden Golden Flashes and directed it against Ling Feiyue.

Immediately all the protégés of the Celestial Orthodox Sect were smiling and all the other cultivators were in awe as several golden flashes that were projecting lethal profound powers began to radiate from Zhao Songjin’s sword!

There were altogether nine levels to the Beautiful Maiden Swordplay and anyone that was able to attain to the eighth level was considered to be a genius practitioner of the Beautiful Maiden Swordplay.

The lethal golden swords of the Golden Maiden Golden Flashes would be able to cut down most opposing cultivators!

When the many cultivators saw the Golden Maiden Golden Flashes, they immediately knew that the future Sacred Maiden Zhao Songjin was a genius cultivator that they should stay steer in the future!

Zhao Songjin smirked as she shouted, “Ling Feiyue! You have better displayed your Unrighteous Moon Profound Force as your profound defense or I will rip through your clothes in front of all the cultivators in this hall and I shall shame you in public view of everyone!”

Ling Feiyue giggled softly as runic lights began to flash on her raven black robe and everyone was startled. It was a no brainer that her robe was a rare celestial robe that was nearly indestructible.

When Yuan Ji saw the runic markings on her celestial robe, he began to curse her silently. “She is too rich…and lame…”

In the Celestial Realm, celestial robes were even rarer than divine swords and it was worth more than ten heaven-step divine swords!

Ling Feiyue had suddenly leapt into the air enveloped by her profound golden aura but it was not the Unrighteous Moon Profound Force that she was displaying.

Rather she had raised her heaven-step divine sword with both her hands as her golden animus began to form several circular afterimages of her swords as she sent dozens of phantom swords to rain upon Zhao Songjin!

These phantom swords were formed from the sheer condensation of her profound power and was not sword energies. Although it was a limited in range but it was powerful if Ling Feiyue could unleash it at point blank.

“This is my Thousand Raining Swords of my Flying Spirit Sword Art. I believe that I have told Xue Qianxue a hundred years ago that once I have mastered my Thousand Raining Swords, the eighth level of her Beautiful Maiden Swordplay will be broken by my sword stance.”

After Ling Feiyue had just ended her sentence, the phantom golden swords of Zhao Songjin were all completely shattered by the hundreds of phantom silver flying swords that were unleashed by her.

At the same time that Zhao Songjin had yelled aloud when hundreds of phantom swords had flown into her, the phantom swords had also exploded into many thunderous outbursts of shockwaves when it had landed.

In less than three blinks of an eye, Zhao Songjin’s golden animus had given way and she was sent flying off to the back again.

The destruction that was caused by the Thousand Raining Swords was so devastating that it dug several holes on the ground, destroying the reinforced celestial stabs that were laid.

This time round even the most nonchalant golden celestials were stunned by Ling Feiyue’s display of her sword art.

“This…”

“Is this sword art even considered to be from this world?”

“The sword art of the Celestial Orthodox Sect is broken…”

“How is it possible?”

“Great Saintess Ling Feiyue has just defeated Zhao Songjin…”

This time round, many of the cultivators were even respectfully adding Great Saintess to Ling Feiyue’s celestial title instead of simply calling her Ling Feiyue or Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue.

Yuan Ji was blinking his eyes. He did not expect Ling Feiyue to have mastered the mystical level of her Flying Spirit Sword Art. Usually the last stance of any profound arts was only possible in theory and was not thought possible.

But Ling Feiyue seemed to have crossed that gap all of a sudden.

All of a sudden Yuan Ji had realized why and he was saying unhappily to Xiang Li. “How come Feiyue’s sword spirit is so powerful while you are so weak?”

Yuan Ji had suddenly realized that it was Ling Feiyue’s sword spirit that had enabled her to cross the impossible barrier.

Xiang Li muttered weakly, “Actually I am more powerful but you have not realized it yet. Also, she is a genius while you are not.”

Yuan Ji: …

Even Xue Qianxue was looking a little sheepish as she was heard muttering. “Alas! I am still so far from my Flying Sword Maidens. Ling Feiyue’s swordplay is now superior to me…”

In the meantime Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi had caught hold of the unconscious Zhao Songjin as she said to her protégés. “She is alright and just need a little rest. Bring her inside first.”

After giving her instructions to the protégés, Han Yuchi was now staring coldly at Ling Feiyue. “You have dared to injure and bully my protégé. Today if I don’t teach you a lesson, I am not going to rest our feuds!”

Ling Feiyue hummed coldly, “I am not afraid of you!”

Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi had immediately wrapped herself in a bright golden animus and her golden animus was forming into the shape of a battle maiden.

It was the most powerful divine profound art of the Celestial Orthodox Sect, the Sacred Maiden Profound Art!

The Sacred Maiden Profound Art was one of the most powerful offensive power profound arts and it was more so if the cultivator was a great saintess like Han Yuchi.

Ling Feiyue put her sword aside as she said indifferently, “Then I shall use my Six Realms Divine Art to fight against your Sacred Maiden Profound Art.”

The golden animus that was around Ling Feiyue was slowly withdrawing until it formed a bright dark outline around her. It did not mean that Ling Feiyue’s profound strength or profound aura was weakening but rather it was because it was a special characteristic of the internal profound art. The stronger an internal profound art cultivator was, the thinner and brighter their animus was.

Ling Feiyue was obviously mustering all her profound strength for her upcoming exchange with Han Yuchi.

While Ling Feiyue and Han Yuchi were mustering their profound strength for their showdown, Yuan Ji was feeling extremely miserable.

It was because he was supposed to distract the attention of everyone in the great hall while the two sister saintesses would find an opportunity to rescue Xue Qianxue.

But all of a sudden the appearance of Ling Feiyue had made Xue Qianxue a constant attention. Moreover Xue Qianxue was surrounded by numerous golden celestials. It was almost impossible for anyone to approach her.

Yuan Ji had suddenly realized that Ling Feiyue seemed to have unwittingly taken the rap for him and that his original plan was simply rubbish and impossible to execute.

At this moment Ling Feiyue and Han Yuchi had struck against each other palms with a thunderous explosive impact that sent a big booming shockwave around them, causing many of the weaker cultivators to take several steps backward and even the great hall was vibrating.

Han Yuchi gasped softly as she stumbled five steps back while Xue Qianxue was immediately by her side to support her as she said anxiously, “Master, are you alright? Let Qianxue fight her for you.”

“Qianxue, be careful. Her profound strength is strong.” Han Yuchi coughed weakly.

Xue Qianxue nodded quietly before she hummed coldly to Ling Feiyue, “It isn’t because our sect’s Sacred Maiden Profound Art is weaker than your Six Realms Divine Art. Let me meet your Six Realms Divine Art instead!”

Han Yuchi smirked out, “My Sacred Maiden Profound Art is only at the seventh rank but Qianxue’s Sacred Maiden Profound Art is at the eighth rank. Just you watch!”

Ling Feiyue said coldly, “I am waiting.”

There was a burst of golden animus on Xue Qianxue as a battle maiden began to form from her profound aura.

All of a sudden the protégés of the Celestial Orthodox Sect were all gasping excitingly as the battle maiden sprouted wings and an external pressure began to exert heavily on everyone.

Even Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi was gasping with disbelief, “Qianxue, when did you attain the Ninth Rank of the Sacred Maiden Profound Art?!”

Xue Qianxue chuckled softly to her master, “I just realize only.”

Han Yuchi: …

“The Ninth Rank of the Sacred Maiden Profound Art…”

“Xue Qianxue is the first cultivator in the entire history of the Celestial Orthodox Sect to have attained to the ninth rank…”

“She is indeed the genius among the geniuses…”

“Does it mean that Xue Qianxue is now unbeatable?”

Xue Qianxue turned to say coolly to Ling Feiyue, “Ai~ I’m afraid that your eighth rank of your Six Realms Divine Art may be a little lacking now.”

Ling Feiyue smiled indifferently, “Is that so?”

All of a sudden there was a golden light that was at Ling Feiyue’s natal core.

When everyone saw that it was a golden core that was revolving at her natal core, there were shocks and disbeliefs.

She hummed softly, “Although my Six Realms Divine Art is still at the eighth rank but I have already cultivated the golden natal core. Who win or lose is still a little early to say, don’t you think so?”

“Golden core!”

“Ling Feiyue had managed to create a golden core for her cultivation core?”

“She has found the True Sacred Saint Profound Art or she has found another divine skill that was capable of creating a golden core?”

Even Yuan Ji was startled as he blinked his eyes. He had never expected that Ling Feiyue would be able to cultivate a golden core in a matter of two months.

He was forced to admit to Xiang Li, “She is really a genius…and a rich cultivator…”

Xiang Li was almost in tears as she ignored Yuan Ji, “Xue Qianxue or Ling Feiyue. Who do I choose to be my new master?”

Yuan Ji: …

All of a sudden all the upper echelons of the seven major orthodox clans were all staring in the direction of Ling Feiyue and that included Han Yuchi.

It was because the leadership of the seven major orthodox knew of a terrible secret that few others know and it was that the golden core of a cultivator could be absorbed into their own cultivation natal core by killing the golden core cultivator.

Thousands of years ago, there were actually many golden core cultivators but most were either killed or had ascended to the Immortal Realm, leaving the cultivation method of the golden core a great mystery for the present cultivators.

With a golden core, it was a lot easier for the cultivators to become a great saint or even ascended to the Immortal Realm.

All of a sudden many of the great saints and golden saints of the seven major orthodox clans were all looking at Ling Feiyue with a murderous intention.

In fact these cultivators could no longer sit by the fence and they had the intentions to intervene now!

And that included Saintess Jian Yuluo, Little Princess and the sect masters of the seven major orthodox clans!

Saintess Jian Yuluo was the first to speak, “Sacred Maiden Qianxue, let your sister here assist you. Against a demoness like Ling Feiyue, there is no need for you to fight her one to one!”

Great Saint Jin Tianzong, the sect master of the Mystic Profound Pavilion was also laughing jovially, “That is right. If we take her one on one then we will have fallen into her trick…”

“Since she has delivered into our hands, what are we all waiting for?” Great Saint Jian Kang, sect master of the Profound Heaven Manor immediately said at the same time.

“That’s right!”

All of a sudden many swords were brandished in the ranks of the seven major orthodox clans!

Well, not all the seven major orthodox clans.

Saintess Fang Zhenfei and her Blue Phoenix Sacred Sect continued to be indifferent. As a matter of fact, Saintess Fang Zhenfei was even looking in the other way!

Yuan Ji was startled when he saw that the leaderships of the seven major orthodox clans were all brandishing their swords all of a sudden and he was perplexed.

What was causing their change in reactions?

Xiang Li said coolly, “They want to obtain Ling Feiyue’s golden natal core for their own cultivation.”

When Yuan Ji heard her, he was enraged. “They didn’t help the Celestial Orthodox Sect earlier but when they saw Feiyue’s golden core, they are now reacting. Is this the so call righteous way of the orthodox clans?!”

Xue Qianxue had naturally witnessed the hostilities that were being displayed by the seven major orthodox clans against Ling Feiyue and she had turned around to say unhappily to them. “Today is my personal duel with Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue. Anyone that wishes to fight Ling Feiyue before me has to fight with me first!”

Han Yuchi hummed coldly to the leaders of the other patriarch clans, “I am afraid that you have to wait. My Qianxue will definitely be able to settle Ling Feiyue with the Ninth Rank of the Sacred Maiden Profound Art. So naturally, there is no need for anyone to aid my Qianxue.”

“Haha, we are only trying to help…”

“We are afraid that Sacred Maiden Qianxue may be injured and her cultivation progression may suffer…”

“Surely there is no need for the host to act. Your allies will act in your stead today…”

“We are trying to be helpful…”

It was not only Yuan Ji who was feeling a little perplexed. The cultivators in the gold, silver and bronze seats were all feeling a little perplexed by the reactions of the leadership of the patriarch clans to act on Ling Feiyue now.

“Maybe Ling Feiyue is a threat to them?”

“Maybe she has insulted their honors?”

“Or maybe they are trying to protect Xue Qianxue?”

“Sacred Maiden Qianxue is indeed so popular. There are so many patriarch cultivators that are afraid that she may be injured…”

Chapter 78: The Sacred Maiden Ceremony (4)

Behind Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi and Sacred Maiden Xue Qianxue, were also the five leaders of the six major orthodox clans. There was one leader missing and it was Saintess Fang Zhenfei; she was uninterested in the affairs of the Orthodox Fraternity.

The other leaders of the Orthodox Fraternity knew that Saintess Fang Zhenfei rarely bothered with the Orthodox Fraternity and they did not mind her absence at all. They knew that she was already showing face by turning up.

It seemed that they had all just finished a close door meeting and Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi had introduced to them the new successor to the Celestial Orthodox Sect and the reason why Sacred Maiden Xue Qianxue was entering into seclusion.

Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi had merely explained that Xue Qianxue was going to enter into seclusion together with her and she would be going for her great saintess breakthrough and hence, she needed to be prepared for it.

Although her excuse was quite lame for Xue Qianxue was actually quite young by the standards of the celestial fraternity to attempt the fourth life and death tribulation but it was still an acceptable story. After all, Xue Qianxue was the acknowledged young genius of her generation.

Now that the leaders of all the seven major orthodox clans were all here, everyone began to pay their homages to them excitingly.

Yuan Ji was now tapping his table nervously. It was almost the time for him to act!

Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi smiled as she said aloud, “As everyone knows, today Sacred Maiden Qianxue will be handing over the sect duties to Elder Zhao Songjin and Songjin will be the new Sacred Maiden of the Celestial Orthodox Sect.”

Zhao Songjin was smiling broadly now; today she would finally be the Sacred Maiden and she would lay her hands on the Sacred Maiden Profound Art in which only the sect master could practice.

Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi said, “I will let Sacred Maiden Xue Qianxue say a word or two to everyone first.”

Xue Qianxue blinked her eyes as she nodded toward her protégé master as she quietly rose. When she was blinking her eyes, many of the cultivators had actually misunderstood that she was actually winking at them and was dazzled by her.

Han Yuchi sighed quietly. If given a choice, she would not bear to force Qianxue to give up her sacred maiden position. But what she did was too outrageous.

“Qianxue, have you forgotten that that the practitioners of the Sacred Maiden Profound Art must retain the chastity of their body in order to reach the highest level? You’re supposed to be genius of your generation and had the highest chance to surpass everyone, even becoming the only genius cultivator of our sect in thousands of years to master the Sacred Maiden Profound Art. Yet, you are giving it all up in your moment of sheer folly. Alas…”

Then she took a quiet glance at Zhao Songjin and was pleased with her choice, “Songjin is also our sect genius cultivator as well and she is pure…”

Actually Xue Qianxue did have a chance to repent when she was questioned by her master but she had refused to acknowledge that she was in the wrong and she had even proclaimed that she was going to be this Yuan Ji’s consort. This caused Han Yuchi to be extremely disappointed with her.

“This Yuan Ji is going to be a dead man in a few months’ time! Moreover he already had two consorts. Your future lies with the seven major orthodox clans. Jin Yilong only has a daughter and as the scion of the richest patriarch clan, you should consider him.”

But Xue Qianxue had rebuked her, “Master, that Jin Yilong already has more than thirty consorts!”

“That isn’t the point. The point is that he doesn’t have a heir and our Sacred Maiden Profound Art also preserves your fertility…”

“Master, I’m not your tool…”

“Then you can forget about being a sacred maiden.” Han Yuchi had threatened her.

“So be it then!” Xue Qianxue replied nonchalantly. “I only want to be with Yuan Ji.”

Han Yuchi hummed coldly, “Then I shall have to sentence him to death right in front of your eyes.”

Xue Qianxue smiled bitterly, “Whether I agree to do your bidding or not, you won’t spare him. Am I right to say so? I have already heard that you have whipped him to a half dead state.”

Han Yuchi was quiet on that. It was because she was actually quite startled that Yuan Ji did not die after three weeks of whipping. This fifth realm golden celestial was really a tough nut to kill off.

She did not know of course that she was whipping a seventh realm cultivator that had his profound strength temporary weakened to the fifth realm level as Yuan Ji only had his breakthrough a couple of months ago.

Normally a cultivator would wait for their profound strength to fully recover after their breakthrough before they ventured out so that they could show off their new cultivation strength.

But Yuan Ji simply did not have such luxury as he was dead poor.

Therefore when the cultivators of the Celestial Orthodox Sect had examined his cultivation core, they had all mistaken his true cultivation realm to be at the fifth realm level. Yuan Ji was lucky that they did not do a more thorough check as they had despised him and did not want to spend a single minute more on him. To them, he was a despicable villain that had robbed their Sacred Maiden Qianxue of her chastity with his honey comb lies.

After a few whippings of the Heavenly Tribulation Whip, even Yuan Ji’s beautiful face had also lost its charm and his daily whippings had also increased.

But he simply did not die from his ordeals and had even survived until the day of his golden tribulation lightning punishment.

Actually Yuan Ji may not survived the heavenly whip of the Celestial Orthodox Sect as he was constantly whipped to a bloody mess but the spiritual force in the mountains of the Celestial Orthodox Sect was really too rich. Even if he was unconsciousness, he was still able to constantly replenish his soul sea and constantly renewing his cultivation vital strength. Moreover, his cultivation strength was even replenishing at an insane rate due to the profound energies of the Sacred Maiden Profound Art that was circulating within his soul sea.

Xue Qianxue was smiling to the cultivators in the hall as she took unhurried steps to the middle of the hall.

Although she was smiling at the cultivators, she was actually secretly using her divine sense to search for Ji Yuan. She had learnt from Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue that Ji Yuan was still alive and she harbored a little hope that he may be here today. But there were simply too many cultivators and if Ji Yuan was here today, he was likely to be using a disguise, making him even harder to spot.

But still she continued to scan with her divine sense.

“Ji Yuan, are you here today? I rather you are not here but I really miss you…”

In the meantime Ji Yuan was already making plans to disrupt the ceremony. It was because he had finally got the chance to see her again and he could not resist a light tremble.

All of a sudden he had turned ashen; it was because he had suddenly spotted a smiling Little Princess who was behind Fairy Ye Chengxi and Shangguan Yan!

“What is she doing there?!” His heart had suddenly frozen.

He was really afraid of Little Princess because she had left quite a dark blemish in the heart of his Great Dao. Moreover Little Princess knew what he had looked like before he spotted his long beard.

Just as he was hesitating to take his actions, there were panicky outbursts from the entrance of the great hall.

Everyone was alarmed because they could sense killing intents from beyond the entrance and there were even the clashing of swords!

A low level cultivator of the Celestial Orthodox Sect had panicky entered the great hall as she hastily reported, “The unorthodox cultivators are here! They flew in on their flying mounts! We try to stop them but we are unable to stop them!”

Matriarch Han Yuchi hummed coldly, “They must be courting their death wishes! How many of them are storming in?”

“Around thirty.”

When all the cultivators heard that it was only a miserable thirty, almost everyone was roaring with laughter and amusement. The number of seventh realm experts in this grand hall alone numbered at least a hundred and the number of golden celestials alone numbered in the thousands!

Even Matriarch Han Yuchi was stunned before she regained her composure. “Have the inner court golden celestials to deal with them. Don’t bother me with such small matters…”

But barely had she finished speaking, several golden celestials of the Celestial Orthodox Sect were kicked into the great hall, startling everyone.

“I’m afraid that your inner golden celestials may not be able to turn me away.” An enthralling and powerful voice echoed from beyond the main entrance of the great hall.

Yuan Ji was startled, “This…”

Even Xue Qianxue was startled as she turned her attention from the cultivators to the main entrance of the hall, putting Ji Yuan aside for the time being.

Before long, about thirty male and female cultivators all dressed in raven black robes appeared at the main entrance. All of them had golden eyes and they were all at the fifth realm level and above!

But what had caught the attention and even imagination of all the cultivators in the great hall was the presence of an alluring long hair maiden that was leading them. She was extremely beautiful and breathtaking as everyone was gasping at her mesmerizing peerless beauty.

When they saw the insignia that were on their black robes, many of cultivators were muttering. “These unorthodox cultivators are from the Spirit Blue Moon Sect…”

“If they are from the Spirit Blue Moon Sect then the peerless maiden that is leading them must be Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue?”

“Ling Feiyue is really so beautiful…”

“No wonder she is ranked as the four great beauties…”

“She is like the moon while Xue Qianxue is like the sun…”

“Eh? She is really bold to attack the Celestial Orthodox Sect with only just a few cultivators…”

But at the same time all the cultivators that were near her were intimidated by her suffocating presence. It was because she was exuding the air of a great saintess.

“Upper tier seventh realm level…”

“Ling Feiyue is already a great saintess?!”

“How is it possible? She is so young…”

“Great Saintess is like the eighth realm level already and moreover her fan is a heaven-step divine weapon…”

“She is probably the only great saintess in her group. There are actually ten great saints in this hall to oppose her. Moreover several lower tier saints may be enough to take her out too…”

“But her air looks different…”

Yuan Ji was stunned to see Ling Feiyue so soon. He did not remember telling her that he was going to the Celestial Orthodox Sect therefore she must have come here on her own accord.

“Why is she here?!”

“Doesn’t she know that this is the stronghold of the orthodox clans?”

“Don’t tell me she is here to settle her feud with Xue Qianxue?” Yuan Ji had suddenly remembered that they had a feud in the past.

All of a sudden he had a terrible headache. The main reason why he had decided to break off with Ling Feiyue was because he did not want to let her know that he was coming here to rescue Xue Qianxue. It was best that she did not know that he had a relationship with Xue Qianxue…

All of a sudden he had realized something else.

“Ling Feiyue, Xue Qianxue, Chengxi, Yan’Er, Little Princess, Jian Yuluo and Xia Jiajia…they are all here today…crap…how am I even able to show my face today?”

Han Yuchi said coldly, “Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue? Why are you here for?”

The peerless maiden that was leading the intruders was indeed Ling Feiyue. She waved her raven fan gently before answering coolly, “Since Xue Qianxue is abdicating her position, I am naturally here to witness this great occasion.”

Han Yuchi hummed coldly, “You are really bold to come here. However we do not welcome you. If you are smart enough, you should leave immediately.”

Ling Feiyue chuckled beautifully, “What if I say no? What will you do to me?”

Han Yuchi returned a cold smirk, “Then don’t blame me for taking good care of you later!”

Ling Feiyue had suddenly waved her fan and in the next instant it was reshaped into a heaven-step divine sword, “Today I am taking Xue Qianxue away! If anyone dares to stop me, don’t blame me for being ruthless!”

When she had said that, many of the cultivators who were still drinking calmly were suddenly choking and looking at Ling Feiyue with amusement. She must be joking, right? There was no way she could even battle even one-tenth of all the cultivators here.

Moreover Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi was also a great saintess and she was renowned for her hot temper!

This was a direct provocation!

Yuan Ji was stunned by Ling Feiyue’s proclamation as he muttered, “This is supposed to be my speech. Why is she using my speech now…”

Xiang Li had popped into Yuan Ji’s soul sea and she was looking quite miserable as she struggled with her inner heart demons, “Xue Qianxue or Ling Feiyue…I can’t decide who to help now…”

Chapter 77: The Sacred Maiden Ceremony (3)

Fairy Ye Chengxi returned a quiet hand bow to Saintess Fang Zhenfei before she picked up Sky Forth that was thrust in front of her.

She muttered incoherently, “This is my old master’s sword. It’s so good to see you again. But why is this sword with her? Did she really find it by the roadside?”

Jin Yuyun displayed a smirk as she swung her divine sword in front of her and there was a shrieking sound that was caused by the breaking of the windforces that was caused by her sword.

Her sword was really a good sword as evidenced by the sounds of the windforces that were heard when she had swung it!

Many of the cultivators had an envious look as they gasped softly at her divine sword. In the Desolate Celestial Fraternity, obtaining a divine sword was a lofty dream for many and that included the elite protégés from the seven major orthodox clans.

Jin Yuyun was the daughter of Jin Yilong and she had a lofty position within the Mystic Profound Pavilion. Plus the fact that her father had doted on her and that was why she had a divine sword. As a matter of fact, she was his only child.

The higher the realm level a cultivator was, the more difficult it was for them to have any children. Even though Jin Yilong had many consorts but after so many years, she was still his only child and because of this reason, he had spoiled her rotten.

Naturally because Jin Yuyun felt that she was a proud daughter of the heavens, she had even dared to challenge Fairy Ye Chengxi in the presence of so many high level cultivators. She did not care if these high level cultivators were her seniors in cultivation. She was bent on winning renown for herself.

“Please give me your instructions!” Jin Yuyun laughed softly.

Fairy Ye Chengxi also returned a polite greeting, “Please give me your instructions.”

With that they had immediate brandished their swords and were immediately encircling each other.

Fairy Ye Chengxi steps were extremely light and she was like a fairy that was drifting like a cloud. The onlookers were all dazzled by her and many did not even realize that she was even moving continuously.

Jin Yuyun was the first to attack upon seeing that Fairy Ye Chengxi had hesitated to make the first move.

She had immediately unleashed a series of sword strokes; her strokes were ingenious and contained stroke within a stroke.

“It is the Thirteen Strokes of the Gushing Winds!” Many of the cultivators were gasping with startled astonishment.

The Thirteen Strokes of the Gushing Winds were an advanced swordplay that was ranked within the top thirty sword arts ranking. It was an extremely fast swordplay but it was also extremely difficult to master.

From Jin Yuyun’s astonishing display of the Thirteen Strokes of the Gushing Winds, everyone knew that she had reached a high level of expertise in it. Moreover her sword strokes were augmented by her divine sword and all her strokes displayed startling profound power that immediately put most fifth realm golden celestials to shame.

Fairy Ye Chengxi immediately counter-attacked with the sword art of the Orthodox Sword Sect, which was a several light whirlwind strokes that seemingly lacked power.

Yuan Ji rubbed his chin nervously as he muttered, “Our sect sword ranking is at the forty-nine rank. It isn’t too bad when compared to a superior sword art like the Thirteen Strokes of the Gushing Winds.”

“Fairy Ye Chengxi’s sect swordplay is currently unranked. It used to be forty-nine when Sword Saint Ji Yuan is around. I am afraid that Fairy Ye Chengxi may suffer a crushing defeat this time round.” A cultivator in front of Yuan Ji was discussing with the cultivator next to him.

When Yuan Ji heard him, he had an ugly face and he was cursing silently. “What? Our sect swordplay has now fallen into such a poor state?”

“Actually the swordplay of the Orthodox Sword Sect is rather ordinary. I just don’t understand how Fairy Ye Chengxi is able to become a Sword Saintess…”

“Whether it is cultivation level, sword art, profound strength, profound power and sword, Jin Yuyun is superior to Fairy Ye Chengxi. There is no doubt that Fairy Ye Chengxi has a disadvantage.”

Jin Yuyun had suddenly raised a soft shout as she mustered all her profound strength as she charged forward with the Torrential Charge and the Sweeping Gale Force, two of the most powerful sword arts of the Thirteen Strokes of the Gushing Winds.

Immediately there were dozens of sword strokes that accompanied the sword display of Jin Yuyun as she charged forward, forcing Fairy Ye Chengxi to skip five steps backward.

Yuan Ji hummed coldly, “The victor is determined now.”

All of a sudden Fairy Ye Chengxi had returned a barrage of sword strokes into the Sweeping Gala Force which consisted of dozens of dancing sword shadows.

To the astonishment of all the onlookers, Fairy Ye Chengxi had neutralized all the sword strokes that were from Jin Yuyun in a blink of an eye and all of a sudden her sword was pointing at Jin Yuyun’s throat!

Everyone was blinking their eyes. It was because it happened so fast that only the higher realm cultivators could actually see what was happening.

Even Jin Yuyun was stunned that Fairy Ye Chengxi’s seemingly weak sword strokes had neutralized her Sweeping Gale Force in a blink of an eye. Her Sweeping Gala Force was so fast that she could unleash thirty-six strokes in an instant. This quick burst was extremely draining to her profound strength but very few opponents actually had the measure to oppose the insane speed of the Sweeping Gale Force.

But Fairy Ye Chengxi had displayed forty-eight strokes in an instant and had completely neutralized her Sweeping Gale Force.

Before Jin Yuyun could realize what happened next, Fairy Ye Chengxi’s sword was already on her throat!

Yuan Ji had of course predicted that Fairy Ye Chengxi would win and not Jin Yuyun.

It was because he had often ruthlessly bullied his Chengxi with his barrage of sword stroke, showing no mercy to her. The only way for her to break his barrage of sword strokes was not to engage his sword strokes directly at the very start when it was at its strongest point but to engage it when his profound strength was renewing.

He had trained to his Chengxi to watch her opponents’ attacks keenly and to overcome this kind of speed techniques.

“Speed techniques have a weakness. You can overcome it via a little trick and of course, you have to be fast too.” He had told her.

Jin Yuyun really could not believe that she would lose to Fairy Ye Chengxi.

She quickly parried Fairy Ye Chengxi’s sword aside and raised her palm to display a powerful palm profound art. The instant that she had displayed her palm profound art, a burst of triple halo began to burst forth around her!

Everyone was alarmed because they could see that this palm profound art was the powerful Mystic Profound Hand, a divine profound art that could crush the bones of even a golden celestial!

Jin Yuyun had taken advantage of Fairy Ye Chengxi’s mercy to suddenly knock aside the sword that was pointing at her throat to retaliate. In the eyes of many of the cultivators that were watching the duel, it was a shameless act and it was even more shameless because Jin Yuyun cultivation level was higher than Fairy Ye Chengxi.

But Fairy Ye Chengxi gently raised her left fingers as five piercing sword energies fingers struck Jin Yuyun’s palm hard, causing her to shriek painfully as she stumbled three steps back.

Many of the cultivators were startled by Fairy Ye Chengxi’s display of her sword energies fingers.

“Fairy Ye Chengxi is a sword energies practitioner?”

“And her sword energies can even break the Mystic Profound Hand?”

“Maybe Jin Yuyun is too weak in her Mystic Profound Hand…”

Jin Yilong shouted at Jin Yuyun, “Have you disgrace yourself enough? Come back to your seat now.”

After he scolded his daughter, he turned to look lecherously at Fairy Ye Chengxi and smiled at her, “Fairy Ye is indeed skillful. I am truly impressed by you. Please accept my sincere apologies for the rudeness that is displayed by my daughter. I will like to invite Fairy Ye to visit the Mystic Profound Pavilion so that I can extend my heartfelt apologies.”

“I appreciate it.” Fairy Ye Chengxi smiled lightly before she returned to her seat, leaving Jin Yilong to wonder if that was a yes or a no.

“Maybe she is too shy to answer me. After all, there are so many cultivators around. Maybe I will ask her in private instead.” Jin Yilong was grinning as he stared lecherously at Fairy Ye Chengxi.

He was only interrupted by an angry huff by his daughter who had returned to her seat that was next to him, “Father! I have not lost yet!”

Jin Yilong frowned when he had heard her, “Forget it. Finger skills are a natural nemesis to palm skills. You didn’t know that she is a sword energies practitioner…”

“Fist skills are a nemesis to her finger skills. Father, get me a powerful fist cultivation profound art to fight her. Next time I will smash her fingers.” Jin Yuyun interrupted her father with an unhappy face.

Third Young Master Jian Menghao was heard quite audible, “I will like to challenge the Goddess Fairy Ye Chengxi too…”

“Sit down and be quiet!” Saintess Jian Yuluo stared coldly at him before lowering her voice. “Aren’t you shameless? She is a maiden. Don’t bully her. Do you want to become the enemy of all the cultivators that have their eyes on her?”

With a reluctant and lustful look, Third Young Master Jian Menghao forced himself to stand still. After all, he did not dare to disobey his Celestial Teacher and aunt.

Yuan Ji’s attention had quickly returned to Saintess Fang Zhenfei.

He was sighing heavily. “She is sitting in the prestige seat. I can’t even go over there to talk to her. At least I can see her for the last time before my passing. This is a small consolation to my heart. I wonder if she will feel grieve for me and is willing to guard my tomb as my widow?”

“Fat hope!”

Yuan Ji was startled when his thoughts rebuked him. But he soon realized that it was actually Xiang Li.

Xiang Li was now rebuking him, “Forget that Xue Qianxue! What is so good about her? You have two lovely saintesses that you can make merry with. Why are you throwing your life for a mere maiden?”

When Yuan Ji saw Xiang Li in his soul sea, he was frowning lightly. “Go away.” He gave an additional frown when he remembered that Xiang Li was actually a lusty spirit entity that only appeared whenever he was having fun with the two sister saintesses.

“Why did I have such a sentient spirit entity for? Where is my noble heart and caring spirit entity?”

“Remember you are not my master yet.” Xiang Li laughed as she reminded him. “You ought to find me a new owner soon. Maybe you ought to pass me to Hua Wuwu…but I like Maiden Ling Feiyue better…she is a great saintess…her future is limitless…”

“I will never see Feiyue again. Moreover we have already broken up. I will dump you into a pit hole full of shit before I die.” Yuan Ji interrupted her with a light frown.

“You are so honest with me. I like it. Hehe.” Xiang Li did not seem to mind as she disappeared again.

All of a sudden several holy maidens were announcing, “Sacred Maiden Qianxue is making her entrance. Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi is making her entrance. The matriarch elders of the sect are making their entrances…”

The announcements were repeated three times altogether.

But after the first time when everyone had heard the mention of Sacred Maiden Qianxue, the entire hall fell into breathless anticipations as everyone was looking at the inner hallways for her arrival.

The hundreds of young masters had even left their seats as they stared blankly at the inner hallway. The fans of Xue Qianxue were in their thousands!

After all Xue Qianxue was the number one peerless beauty of the Orthodox Fraternity and was the apple of their eyes and desires.

Even Yuan Ji was standing instead of sitting down.

All of a sudden, everyone was shoving one another as they muttered. “Why did you stand up for? Stop blocking me. Stop shoving me. Hey, sit down!”

Many of the maidens in the hall were naturally unhappy when they saw the looks that were on the men that were like ravenous wolves.

But the men ignored the looks of the maidens, their consorts and even their elders as they continued to lean forward. There were even many that even ignored their elders’ commands to sit down.

One must know that in order for a young master to even catch a glimpse of Xue Qianxue, they had to bring expensive gifts to even have a chance to have a look at her. But today Xue Qianxue would be making her public appearance. Naturally no one would want to give up such a chance to see her for the very last time!

An old elder in front of Yuan Ji was rebuking his protégés, “All of you, sit down! You are all throwing the sect’s face away.”

Yuan Ji was impressed by the old elder as he thought, “At least there is a man of culture here.”

The old elder started to shove his protégés, “All of you are blocking my view. Sit down!”

Yuan Ji: …

“They are coming!” The cultivators were all muttering excitingly as they could see the shadows that were beyond the hallway and many of the cultivators were even extending their divine senses to probe.

Before long, a group of beautiful golden celestials had emerged from the hallway. They were the beautiful Zhao Songjin who was dressed in the white and gold attire of the sacred maiden garb and she was accompanied by several beautiful saintesses and elders of the Celestial Orthodox Sect.

Zhao Songjin was really astonishing beautiful and she was also in the top ten beauties ranking of the Desolate Celestial Fraternity.

She was smiling proudly and why would she not be haughty at the same time? Today was her big day and from this day onward, she would be in charge of the powerful Celestial Orthodox Sect, one of the patriarch clans of the Desolate Celestial Fraternity!

But her smiles slowly faded because she could sense that the divine senses of the many cultivators were actually not on her but were all extending beyond the hallway; they were only interested in Xue Qianxue!

She forced herself to smile gracefully as she took her seat in the middle of the hall with her other protégé sisters.

Before long, a second group had emerged from the hallway and everyone was now muttering excitingly. “Sacred Maiden Xue Qianxue! She is here!”

“Xue Qianxue is finally here!”

“Look! Look!”

The Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi was actually quite pretty too and she had thought that everyone was looking in awe of her. After all, she was a great saintess and had a lofty status within the Celestial Orthodox Sect.

But she soon realized her mistake because all the looks and divine senses were sweeping past her to her personal protégé who was behind her, Sacred Maiden Xue Qianxue!

Although Xue Qianxue was surrounded by more than ten beautiful golden celestials but her peerless beauty was just too dazzling, causing the others to fade away in her presence.

The loveliness of Xue Qianxue was a mixture of innocence and cuteness at the same time while her alluring beauty was like a radiance beauty that immediately lifted the spirits of her admirers. The more they admired her, the deeper her beauty was able to etch into their hearts.

That was why her peerless beauty was like a sweeping awe in the hall. Only the heavenly graceful beauty of Fairy Ye Chengxi was able to light a candle in her presence.

The smiling Xue Qianxue had noticed Fairy Ye Chengxi and Shangguan Yan the instant that she had entered the hall as she muttered silently, “So that is Ji Yuan’s two consorts? I so envy him…”

When she had thought of Ji Yuan, her fingers were unconsciously at her belly. She had used her profound strength to seal the growth of her unborn child. This was a secret that she was unwilling to reveal to her matriarch or to anyone. She was determined to give birth to her child once this handover ceremony was over…

Zhao Songjin was gritting her teeth as she stared coldly at Xue Qianxue. “She can still smile? After I have become the Sacred Maiden Zhao Songjin, I like to see how you can manage to smile. Maybe I can even arrange an accident for you.”

Yuan Ji was blinking his eyes when he saw Xue Qianxue. It was as though he was seeing her for the very first time. She still had her long pony tail bundled to a side and her loveliness was still as melting as ever.

He still could not believe that he had been intimate with such a peerless beauty.

Xiang Li had suddenly reappeared in his soul sea and was gasping, “She is Xue Qianxue?”

She was soon smiling, “She is really not bad. No wonder you want to dump the Goddess Ling Feiyue for her. Well, I’ve changed my mind and decide to help you.”

Yuan Ji took a suspicious look at her before muttering, “Xiang Li, actually are you a male or female spirit entity?”

Xiang Li had a flustered look before she chuckled, “Of course I am a female!”

Yuan Ji muttered, “Are you sure? I never seen a more lecherous female than you…”

Chapter 76: The Sacred Maiden Ceremony (2)

In all of Yuan Ji entire life, he had never seen a hall that was as vast as this that could accommodate more than fifty thousand cultivators.

Not only was this hall grandeur and spacious but it looked like it could accommodate another one hundred thousand cultivators without any issue.

He had only one sentence to describe his experience with an envious look after a while in the hall, “The Celestial Orthodox Sect is really a rich sect.”

Everywhere, the beautiful protégés of the Celestial Orthodox Sect were serving the guests with rare fruits and aromatic wines.

He was actually looking in the direction of the prestige seats and saw that even though there were only six celestial clans that occupied it but their protégés numbered in the thousands.

He was completely stunned by their numbers and was immediately sheepish.

It seemed that he needed to tweak his plan a little now…

He turned to growl weakly to Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue, “Do they need to send so many cultivators just to attend a ceremony?”

Hua Wuwu laughed, “It is only once every few centuries big event and moreover it is a change of leadership. Naturally the other six major orthodox clans must give a little face.”

“It is more than enough face.” Yuan Ji muttered unhappily.

Hua Baiyue whispered to them, “Look this time round, even the Blue Phoenix Sacred Sect is also here. What a surprise!”

Yuan Ji immediately followed her eyes and saw the protégés of the Blue Phoenix Sacred Sect. There were actually not many of them and they were only in their dozens instead of hundreds.

He immediately noted that their robes were actually light blue and that their female protégés were also donning a light blue face veil. Most of the female protégés had already loosened their face veils to sample the rare fruits and aromatic drinks that were spread in front of them.

Almost all, except for an outstanding maiden with a pair of beautiful golden eyes. However he was soon disappointed because he had noticed that the insignia on her forehead was a blue bird rather than a blue flower petal.

The veiled maiden that he had suspected to be Xia Jiajia had a blue petal on her forehead…

Next he managed to discover the seating arrangements of Fairy Ye Chengxi and Shangguan Yan. They were not hard to miss for they were sitting near to the upper echelons of the Celestial Orthodox Sect.

Yuan Ji could not help staring in their directions. He was not being discreet at all. But luckily for him, he was not the only ones who were staring at the two astonishing beauties. Therefore his actions were deemed as normal and did not attract any attention.

As a matter of fact, half of the male cultivators were all staring and inhaling in appreciation of the heavenly beauties of both Fairy Ye Chengxi and Shangguan Yan. Moreover there were many beautiful maidens that were sitting at the prestige seats and naturally almost everyone was looking in that direction.

Those who had the bronze invitations did not care if they were staring unruly because they were numerous and many of the maidens in the prestige seats and gold seats were actually dressing in their best. Their intentions were only too clear and it was for the men to appreciate.

Even though the men were all looking lecherous at the many beautiful saintesses, supremacies and golden celestials in the hall but they were not foolish to do anything funny. The rules were simple enough. They could only stare but not touch or harass anyone.

All of a sudden Yuan Ji saw a beautiful saintess in the ranks of the Profound Heaven Manor. He was actually quite startled to see her because he had never known that she was from the Profound Heaven Sword Manor and she was sitting near Jian Menghao.

Jian Menghao was naturally Third Young Master Jian Menghao that he had met in the Lotus Sword Mansion Trial. Before Yuan Ji could take any actions on him in the trials, he had committed suicide.

But Yuan Ji was soon frowning because he had suddenly noticed that this beautiful saintess was now serving fruits to Jian Menghao and they were actually quite intimate. There was a look of displeasure in his countenance when he saw them.

When Hua Baiyue saw his countenance and followed his eyes, she began to chuckle. “What? You’ve already set your sights on Saintess Jian Yuluo, one of the top ten beauties. You really have sharp eyes or shall I say envious eyes?”

“What? She is Saintess Jian Yuluo?” Yuan Ji was startled. He was startled because when he had known her, she had called herself Saintess Yuxian and she had never told him that she was actually Saintess Jian Yuluo from the Profound Heaven Sword Manor

“Actually you don’t have to be envious of them.” Hua Baiyue giggled. “They have an aunt and nephew relationship. Moreover Saintess Jian Yuluo is the Celestial Teacher of Jian Menghao.”

Yuan Ji laughed nonchalantly, “Is that so? Why says I am envious? It is just that I have recognized that Jian Menghao and had thrash him up inside the Lotus Sword Mansion. And why should I look at other beauties when I have two lovely saintesses by my side now?”

As he said to Hua Baiyue, he was thinking. “Saintess Jian Yuluo is not Xia Jiajia. Saintess Fang Zhenfei may not be Jia Jiajia too. So I have come to a dead end. Jiajia, where are you. Do you know that I am looking for you? Do you think that you owe me an explanation? Or do you have any difficulties? I can help you but only if you’re willing to tell me…”

His attention soon returned where Saintess Jian Yuluo was. There was a burning hurt in his heart and the bad memories that had occurred three hundred years ago had returned to him.

That was the start of his bad luck. After he was dumped by his old sweetheart, he was captured by Little Princess to be made into her dual cultivation slave. But luckily for him, he had managed to escape after one month of imprisonment when she was not looking and he was found by Saintess ‘Yuxian’.

He was now smiling bitterly now. So Saintess Yuxian was actually Saintess Jian Yuluo. Why did she lie to him? They had a short three months of romance after she had nursed him back to health but she had suddenly disappeared afterward. For the next one hundred years, he had been searching for her news before he had finally given up on finding her.

But three hundred years ago when he saw her again, there was a mix feelings in his heart.

Now he had finally understood why she had left him. It was because she was a proud daughter of one of the patriarch celestial clans and he was only a lowly fourth realm cultivator back then. For him to covet after a lofty seventh realm saintess was an unthinkable act and her celestial clan would never allow their relationship to develop.

Because of the loss of Saintess Yuxian and to fill in the emptiness of his heart, he began to drink heavily and spent more time on creating romantic poems. The rest of the fraternity may only know him as the Great Poet Ji Yuan but they did not know why he was able to create such lingering romantic poems. It was because he had undergone a series of setback three hundred years ago!

This was something that Shangguan Yan and Fairy Ye Chengxi did not know about their old master’s past. Only his best friend Guo Tianming knew what had happened to him. Problem was, he was beginning to wonder if this ‘best’ friend of his had a tight lips about his awkward and bitter past.

“I will kill you if you tell anyone about this.” He cursed Guo Tianming silently at the thought that his best friend’s lips may not be so tight after all.

His thoughts were interrupted by Hua Wuwu who asked him, “There are about three thousands golden celestials here and as many as three hundred seventh realm golden saints here. Have you decided already?”

Yuan Ji replied her quietly, “We shall proceed as planned. As soon as Xue Qianxue has arrived, I will distract them. Help me to rescue her.”

Hua Wuwu nodded quietly before she stood up with her sister Hua Baiyue and they seemed to be leaving.

Yuan Ji was startled, “Where are you going?”

Hua Wuwu replied coolly, “Naturally we are going to get as far away as possible from you. If we are seen with you then they may think that we are in cahoots and it will make the rescue plan difficult to execute.”

Hua Baiyue whispered melancholy, “Brother Yuan Ji, please don’t die.”

Hua Wuwu was quietly clenching her fists as she left with Hua Baiyue. They knew that Yuan Ji’s plan was to sacrifice himself for Xue Qianxue but they did not expose him.

There was actually another way to avoid the personal duel with their old master. And that was to allow the Celestial Orthodox Sect and the many celestial clans to kill him in full public view. In this way, the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace would be appeased if he could not turn up for their personal duel.

After all, the Old Master could not find fault with a dead man. If he really wanted to find fault then he would have to settle this feud with the hundreds of celestial clans that had kill him.

Yuan Ji nodded quietly as he could only watch them mingle among the thousands of cultivators. They were right. It was best if they were far from him when he had stepped out to confront the Celestial Orthodox Sect.

All of a sudden he saw Lu Qingyun, Fan Yuqing and the rest of their group at the golden seats.

He was startled, “I thought that they are from the Nine Celestial Fraternity? Why are they here? They will be tricky for me to handle…”

Yuan Ji did not know that they had also stolen their invitation cards too. Fan Yuqing loved banquets the most and would never give up any chance to attend one.

He was soon impatiently counting the passage of time as he resolved silently, “Qianxue, I will surely rescue you. Because of me, you have lost everything…”

Just as everyone was jovially toasting and shouting cheers to one another, a spirited and beautiful lovely maiden had stepped on the side of the prestige hall with a soft shout, “Junior here is Celestial Jin Yuyun of the Mystic Profound Pavilion. I will like Celestial Fairy Ye Chengxi to instruct this junior here!”

Jin Yuyun as one of the ten acknowledged beautiful fairies and her alluring beauty was only slightly beneath the four great beauties. Therefore when she had stepped forward with a challenge to Fairy Ye Chengxi, everyone was startled but they were also looking in her direction with eager anticipation.

It was obvious to them that Jin Yuyun may be envious of the heavenly beauty of Fairy Ye Chengxi and even her reputation.

Even Yuan Ji was muttering, “Chengxi is only a beautiful vase. She won’t be a match for this Jin Yuyun who is backed by the formidable celestial resources of the Mystic Profound Pavilion.”

Fairy Ye Chengxi said nonchalantly as she took a look at Jin Yuyun before she humbly lowered her glances, “Chengxi is only less than two hundred years of age. How can I be considered to be your senior? We are both at the fifth realm golden celestial level and moreover I am younger in cultivation age than you.”

There was a flush on Jin Yuyun’s countenance. It was true that Fairy Ye Chengxi was younger than her. But she forced through a smile and said, “Everyone knows that Fairy Ye Chengxi is a Sword Saintess. Even if I do not acknowledge that you are my senior, it is not justifiable.”

Then she chuckled softly, “Don’t tell me that a Sword Saintess will be afraid of taking a challenge from the same realm level?”

“Chengxi is only afraid that we will spoil the happy occasion.” She said quietly without lifting her eyes.

Jin Yuyun chuckled softly as she turned to ask all the cultivators in the hall, “If we have a short duel here, will it spoil the mood of everyone here?”

Immediately there were jovial outbursts, “No! Please continue! It is going to be an eye opener…”

Almost all the cultivators that were shouting a reply were all eager to see the two beauties in action. After all, this was not something that they could see every day!

Yuan Ji was actually shouted unhappily, “It will surely spoil my mood so get lost!” But his voice was drowned by the thousands of cultivators that were now hoping to see a fight between these two beauties.

Yuan Ji: …

“These cultivators are too lame…”

Shangguan Yan gasped softly as Ye Chengxi quietly rose up as she replied politely, “In that case, Chengxi will only have to oblige the wishes of everyone.”

When she had said that, all the cultivators were clapping and shouting excitingly.

The only two persons that seemed extremely unhappy about it was actually Yuan Ji and Jin Yilong. It was because Yuan Ji did not want his Chengxi to lose his face and similarly, Jin Yilong did not want his daughter to lose his face too!

“This Jin Yuyun is really good. She manages to distract everyone but it is a pity that her distraction is at the wrong timing when Xue Qianxue, Zhao Songjin and Matriarch Sacred Maiden Han Yuchi had not arrived yet.” Yuan Ji sighed.

Then he added with another soft sigh, “If they had already arrived then she probably doesn’t have the iron guts to create this disturbance.”

Everyone was now muttering to one another.

“So who do you think will be able to win?”

“Jin Yuyun is an upper tier fifth realm golden celestial while Fairy Ye Chengxi is an initial fifth realm golden celestial…”

“Jin Yuyun is two small tiers higher than Fairy Ye Chengxi…”

“But Fairy Ye Chengxi is a Sword Saintess…”

“Although Fairy Ye Chengxi is a Sword Saintess but few have rarely seen her in action…”

“Is a Sword Saintess formidable?”

“Why don’t you take the Sword Trials and experience it yourself?”

Although there were about twenty sword saints that were rumored to exist in the entire fraternity but they were rarely seen. Even the seven major orthodox patriarch clans had only one known Sword Saintess and that was the Saintess Jian Yuluo.

Saintess Jian Yuluo had only attained as a Sword Saintess in the Forgotten Valley of the Saint Swords three hundred years ago. At that time she was already a saintess.

The other two known Sword Saints were actually Ji Yuan and Fairy Ye Chengxi.

Countless number of cultivators had taken the Sword Trials of the Forgotten Valley of the Saint Swords and had failed.

All the sword cultivators who were lucky enough to survive the Sword Trials to become a Sword Saint knew how difficult it was.

Fairy Ye Chengxi may be only a fifth realm cultivator but in the eyes of the sword practitioners from the first to the seventh realm, she was their heroine and the shadow that they were chasing after!

Jin Yuyun was smiling as she took out an earth grade divine sword, “Please give me your instructions, Sword Saintess Ye Chengxi!”

Fairy Ye Chengxi had unsheathed her sword and to the awkwardness of all the sword cultivators, they saw that it was only a half-step precious sword.

Yuan Ji was smiling bitterly when he saw her half-step precious sword. It was because her sword was actually given to her by him.

His Orthodox Sword Sect was quite poor and the best sword that his sect had was actually a heaven-step precious sword and he had given it to Xia Jiajia…

He cursed her softly, “Chengxi, I’m sure that you can get a better sword from the treasuries of the Emperor Hall Sect? At least get yourself an earth-step precious sword…”

All the sword cultivators were now looking anxiously at Fairy Ye Chengxi…

Not only was Jin Yuyun two tiers higher than Fairy Ye Chengxi but she also had a divine sword that could project her profound power. Moreover she was from one of the patriarch clans and had many secret profound arts hidden in her sleeves.

Although most of the cultivators used a sword but most were not sword cultivators. Only around 10% of the cultivators presented in the hall were actually sword cultivators while the rest were sabre cultivators, spear cultivators, palm cultivators, finger cultivators, fist cultivators, body cultivators, profound power cultivators, internal profound art cultivators, profound aura cultivators etc. The majority of the cultivators were actually hybrid cultivators.

That was the main reason why the seven major orthodox patriarch clans had a hard time producing a Sword Saint was because they simply had too many profound arts and it was hard for them to specialize into a field alone.

Jin Yuyun could not resist a soft chuckle, “Aiyo~ I didn’t know that Sword Saintess Ye Chengxi is actually so poor that she cannot afford a better sword.”

Fairy Ye Chengxi replied nonchalantly, “This precious sword is from my old master to me. It is more than good enough.”

Jin Yuyun chuckled, “You call this sword of yours a precious sword?”

Even Yuan Ji was cursing the same, “You call this sword of yours a precious sword?” He almost had the urge to throw her his divine sword.

Fairy Ye Chengxi smiled with great tenderness as she looked at the reflection of her sword, “This sword is precious in my heart…”

“Chengxi! Why don’t you use this precious sword?”

The voice had come from Saintess Fang Zhenfei as she threw a sword in front of Fairy Ye Chengxi.

Everyone was quite startled that it was actually Saintess Fang Zhenfei that had spoken.

But when they had all used their divine senses on the sword that Saintess Fang Zhenfei had thrust in front of Fairy Ye Chengxi, they were all quite disappointed to learn that it was actually just a heaven-step precious sword.

“I believe that this sword belongs to your old master and it is the heritage sword of your Orthodox Sword Sect. I have happened to find it by the roadside.” Saintess Fang Zhenfei said indifferently before she resumed her meditating pose.

Fairy Ye Chengxi gasped immediately when she saw the precious sword and her eyes were bleary. “This is Sky Forth, my old master’s precious sword…”

Yuan Ji was also startled to see his sect heritage sword again. But he was more startled that Saintess Fang Zhenfei actually had his heritage sword. Although he could not be sure if she was Xia Jiajia but when she said that she had found it by the roadside, he was already ninety percent sure that it was her!

Moreover he had given Sky Forth to her as his pledge for her. Why would it be in the hands of others?

“Find it by the roadside? When she had stolen the Blue Divine Flower, she had also said that she had found it by the roadside. She is really such a bimbo. Haha. Jiajia, I have finally found you…”
