Chapter 93: I am a Middle Tier Saint now!

In the meantime Yuan Ji could feel that the spiritual boundary of his soul sea was now expanding. There was an intense surge of pure spiritual force that was now being exuded from within him and it was filling his surroundings with multiple warm spiritual glows.

This was an indication that his current realm level had improved to the next small boundary!

He was not the only one experiencing it.

Xue Qianxue was also exuding a warm spiritual glow and it was an indication that she was now an upper tier seventh realm level!

“Ji Yuan, I am a great saintess now…” Xue Qianxue was so delighted that she was giggling softly. “Thank you everyone. I really didn’t really expect this at all.”

At this moment, Yuan Ji was unable to hear her. He was in deep meditation in his soul sea now.

The Lightning Tribulation that he had just experienced was now replenishing his dry soul sea which was the size of a small lake. After a while his soul sea had become a crystal clear lake and it was now boiling furiously.

The water in the lake was actually spiritual force that was condensed into liquid form. When cultivators cultivated, they drew upon the spiritual force in the air to condense it into liquid spiritual force which form the soul sea of the cultivator’s inner cultivation sea.

Every time a cultivator had a major realm change, the soul sea would be completely used up to expand upon the spiritual boundary of the soul sea. Only when the spiritual boundary had expanded, would the size of the soul sea would be expanded as well.

When Yuan Ji was at the sixth realm level, his soul sea was a small reservoir. When he had become a seventh realm saint after his breakthrough, his small reservoir had become a big lake. Such a big empty lake would require him a lot of time to cultivate the spiritual force to fill his soul sea. If he was rich enough to afford tons of profound pills and high grade spirit stones then it would be a lot easier for him.

Right now Yuan Ji could feel that his soul sea was now expanding and he was now a middle-tier saint.

He was quite astonished that he was actually a middle-tier saint now; it was because it was not unusual for saint level cultivators to remain an initial saint for decades and even centuries without any breakthrough.

One must know that each cultivation realm has an initial, middle and upper stage. Each stage has a half-step, mortal, earth, heaven and peak stage.

Yuan Ji had only just reached the initial mortal stage, having just solidifying his soul sea not long ago. The waters in his lake were only half-full and not even at its brim. Only when he had reached the peak stage would the waters in his lake be overflowing and the cultivator could hope for the next breakthrough.

But for Yuan Ji, his Lightning Tribulation had come too early and even though the spiritual sea of his soul sea was actually not ready to elevate him for any breakthrough.

Because he had overcome the Lightning Tribulation, the profound power of the Lightning Tribulation was now expanding his spiritual boundary for him.

Although there were seven realm levels and each realm had three grades but the reality was that the seventh realm level actually had only two; the initial and the middle. It was because the middle grade was the limit of cultivation for the cultivators. If they wish to advance then they had to first overcome the Lightning Tribulation and borrowed the profound power of the Lightning Tribulation to attain to the upper sacred saint level.

Therefore Yuan Ji had borrowed the profound power of the Lightning Tribulation and had elevated himself.

And because Yuan Ji had already taken his Lightning Tribulation, his spiritual boundary would not be restricted to the middle peak saint level and he could breakthrough to the upper saint level without a need to face the Lightning Tribulation again.

But he was soon muttering to himself and to Xiang Li as he stared at his empty soul sea, “I am back to a half-step again. To be precise, a middle half-step saint…useless saint with 1% of my spiritual sea intact.” He had used up 99% of his soul sea to fight the Lightning Tribulation.

“When I had completed my breakthrough from the sixth realm level to the seventh realm, I still got 30% of soul sea intact. It is enough for me to kill any fourth realm cultivators and with luck, even a sixth realm cultivator.”

“With my duel in a month’s time, how am I supposed to fight the Old Master if I am not in my peak condition? I need myself to be in the peak condition because of my disparity with the Old Master. I don’t want Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue to be his slaves. Alas…”

Xiang Li giggled shyly, “You can try to dual cultivate with Maiden Qianxue every day. It may help. After all, her Sacred Maiden Profound Art makes her the best dual cultivation partner.”

Yuan Ji: …

“Ji Yuan, quick!” Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were calling to him as they appeared next to him.

Yuan Ji opened his eyes and looked curiously at them, “What is it?”

Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were pointing at the hundreds of high grade spirit stones that were floating around them.

“We need to absorb the spiritual force in these high grade spirit stones. There is only a small window of time for us to absorb the spiritual force in these spirit stones. Once our new spiritual boundary has solidified, we will no longer be able to use the high grade spiritual stones anymore. Profound pills are useless to us because we have taken too many earlier.” Xue Qianxue urged him with a lovely smile.

“Ji Yuan, don’t be shy. You can use ours…” Ling Feiyue was smiling shyly to him.

Yuan Ji was frowning. “Do you know how much one high grade spirit stone cost? And how many high grade spirit stone need to be consumed for it to be of use?”

Only high grade spirit stone could be used to replenish a cultivator’s soul sea during and after a breakthrough.

A single high grade spirit stone could only replenish 0.3% of Yuan Ji’s soul sea. Each additional use would reduce the effectiveness of the replenishment by 1/3. It would require not 300 high grade spirit stones but 30 000 high grade spirit stones to fully replenish Yuan Ji’s soul sea!

Yuan Ji sighed heavily as he drawn upon the spiritual force of the high grade spirit stone and draining it completely, turning it into a low grade spirit stone. If he was not draining the high grade spirit stone, a single high grade spirit stone would be enough to provide him with a rich source of spiritual force for cultivation for an entire month. But then no one would do that because this was too wasteful.

Well, maybe not ‘no one’ because there were two cultivators that were in front of Yuan Ji that would be this wasteful.

Yuan Ji was suddenly startled that Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were throwing literally thousands of high grade spirit stones around them and not the hundreds that he was expecting.

Soon, they had thrown tens of thousands of high grade spirit stones.

Yuan Ji’s jaws fell flat onto the ground…

In the next tens of minutes, they were all grabbing tens of spirit stones in their hands as they drained it dry.

Yuan Ji took a look of guilt at them as he fully replenished his soul sea just in the nick of time as his spiritual boundary stabilized. He was now a middle mortal-step saint now, skipping the half-step completely!

Xue Qianxue clapped her hands as she laughed, “Upper mortal-step great saintess!”

“Upper earth-step great saintess!” Ling Feiyue was giggling delightfully.

All in all, they had used over a hundred thousand high grade spirit stones!

As Yuan Ji looked at the drained spirit stones that were scattered around him, there was a tiny tear in his eyes. “So much wealth…wasted…we have just eaten several gold mines…”

He began to mutter silently, “My two consorts are too high maintenance. I can’t afford to support them with my puny income…”

But he was soon cursing them silently, “These rich cultivators are all wastrels. They can’t even be bothered to cultivate back their profound strength after a small breakthrough. How can they be so lazy? It is only a year or two time of short cultivation…”

Using high grade spiritual stones were only possible for small breakthroughs and not for major realm breakthrough. For realm breakthrough, the high grade spirit stones could only provide only a third of the usual spiritual force and each additional high grade spirit stone would reduce the effectiveness of the replenishment by ½ and there was a cap of 70% of the soul sea.

Therefore even the very rich cultivators would still need to solidify their soul sea with several months of cultivation but it would not be as long as the poor cultivators.

Xue Qianxue gasped out softly, “Sister Yue, your sister here is a little poor now. After all, I am no longer the Sacred Maiden.”

Ling Feiyue giggled softly, “Don’t worry, you still have me!”

Yuan Ji said sarcastically, “You can depend on me. I am the sect master of the Emperor Hall Sect and I have a rich treasury.” A rich treasury of mostly useless things, he purposely neglected to mention it.

Xue Qianxue held onto Yuan Ji’s hand, “My lord is so good to me. In the future, my livelihood will depend on you.”

“Haha. Sure. Leave everything to me.” Yuan Ji laughed bitterly.

“Ji Yuan, why didn’t you take out any high grade spirit stones earlier if you are so rich?” Ling Feiyue asked him curiously.

Yuan Ji: …

“That is because…erm…I saving it for a rainy day…” He muttered almost incoherently.

All of a sudden a shrieking sound was heard from the heavens above as a profound light appeared above them and quickly pierced the ground in front of them like a brilliant lance.

When the white animus of the brilliant lance had vanished, they would see that it was actually a celestial sword!

Yuan Ji was completely stunned as he probed the celestial sword several times with his divine sense. “It is really a celestial sword and it had dropped for no apparent reason from the heavens.”

Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were also startled as they exchanged looks with each other. How was it possible for a celestial sword to drop just like this?

There was only one known celestial sword that was said to exist and that belonged to the Divine Palace Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace.

Celestial sword was extremely rare and was a powerful profound weapon with unimagined strength.

Yuan Ji was however glad that this celestial sword had dropped all out of the blue. It was because this celestial sword had just saved him from answering an awkward question.

“Is this a reward for us for overcoming the Lightning Tribulation?” Xue Qianxue asked curiously.

Ling Feiyue smiled weakly, “I don’t think so. We are not in a trial.”

Yuan Ji muttered, “Maybe it is because we may be the only ones that manage to survive a Purple Lightning Tribulation. Maybe the Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace got his celestial sword in this way.”

“Mmm, maybe…” Ling Feiyue was also confused.

It was because none of them had ever experienced such a strange occurrence before!

Xue Qianxue smiled, “Since it has dropped from the heavens then finder the keeper. Why don’t we give it to Ji Yuan? He needs a good sword for his upcoming duel.”

“I agree with that.” Ling Feiyue smiled.

“Why don’t you want the celestial sword?” Yuan Ji asked them with a weak smile. “Everyone wants it.”

Xue Qianxue chuckled, “Because you are our lord now! Without your lightning tribulation, I don’t even know when I can chance my Lightning Tribulation and I am a little afraid of it if it were to come. But today, I have not only overcome it but have also advanced to a great saintess. I am already very content!”

“Same here!” Ling Feiyue smiled delightfully. “My Silver Lightning Tribulation has been upgraded to a Purple Lightning Tribulation. Moreover I have also a little breakthrough. Ji Yuan, why don’t you listen to us and take it?”

Yuan Ji rubbed his chin as he said, “This is too suspicious. Why don’t I ask Xiang Li to take a look first?”

Xiang Li had naturally heard him because she was still lingering in his soul sea. She too, had seen the celestial sword when it had landed.

Therefore she had appeared quickly in front of them, “This celestial sword seems to have an owner already. But if you really want this celestial sword then I can remove the owner’s profound signature for you.”

Yuan Ji was startled, “You can actually remove profound signatures? Will it be difficult? This is after all a celestial sword.”

Xiang Li giggled as she declared proudly, “The only skill I have is wiping profound signatures. No matter how powerful the owner is or the creator of the profound signature is, it is a piece of cake for me. In fact, I can wipe it clean with just a snap of my fingers.”

Yuan Ji, Xue Qianxue and Ling Feiyue were all stunned by her. It was because it was not thought possible to remove profound signatures from a divine sword. Moreover divine swords had sentient and could resist the attempt.

Xiang Li of course was not boasting. It was because her daily job in the Lotus Sword Mansion was to wipe clean the profound signatures of the treasures of cultivators and took it for herself. Even divine swords were not spared from her merciless recycling.

Yuan Ji heaved a deep sigh as he looked at the reflection of his divine sword, “Actually I don’t want to use any other divine swords even if it is a celestial grade divine sword. The name of this divine sword is Resonate Peak and it is a hundred year pledge that is given to me by Jiajia. Moreover you know that I have a perfect harmony with this divine sword. If I were to use a celestial sword, yes, it will be powerful but I won’t be able to handle it as expertise as this divine sword. Therefore this divine sword is good enough for me.”

Xiang Li chuckled, “I can not only wipe the profound signature off this celestial sword for your own use but I can also degrade it to enhance your divine sword. However it won’t be a full celestial sword but a half-step celestial sword. Do you want to do it?”

Yuan Ji was startled, “You can do something like this? Celestial swords are supposed to be indestructible.”

Even a half-step celestial sword was more powerful than a full step celestial sword because of the perfect harmony that Yuan Ji had. In fact, it could even be considered as a full step celestial sword in his hands if his own heaven-step divine sword could be upgrade to a half-step celestial sword.

Ling Feiyue and Xue Qianxue were astonished as they blinked their eyes. Xiang Li’s ability was too OP!

Yuan Ji laughed heartily, “Then what are you waiting for? Will it take long…”

With a wave of Xiang Li’s fingers, the light of the celestial sword had suddenly turned dull and its spiritual animus was all drained into the Resonate Peak.

In just a blink of an eye, the artefact core of the Resonate Peak had become a half-step celestial grade core!

In short, it was now a half-step celestial sword!

Yuan Ji was stunned. He had barely finished speaking and it was all accomplished by Xiang Li with a wave of her fingers. “What are you Xiang Li? You are a freak!”

Xiang Li laughed heartily as she patted her belly, “Delicious sword…”

There was an auspicious light that lit from the heavens as it landed upon Yuan Ji’s divine sword. Whenever a celestial sword was created, an auspicious omen could be seen.

Yuan Ji lifted his divine sword high up and said proudly, “Dirty Old Master of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace, this time you are dead.” At the same time he muttered silently. “So are you, Little Princess!”

Nearby, the Abyssal Null Goddess coughed out a bout of golden blood when her link with her celestial sword was severed!

She was in complete disbelief!

They did not even fight over the celestial sword but actually had the profound ability to wipe out the link with her celestial sword!

This was something that was clearly impossible!

Not only did she lose her celestial sword but also suffer a severe backlash.

That was not all. Her celestial sword was even destroyed on the spot!

Note: Actually if the Abyssal Null Goddess was near her celestial sword, it would be impossible for Xiang Li destroy it but without the profound might of the owner to safeguard her celestial sword and the distance between owner and the celestial grade divine sword was so vast, Xiang Li in this case was like the ultimate hacker. It was because Xiang Li was unable to affect anything with life force energies on it. This was a restriction to her godly powers.

Her divine sense had suddenly spotted a beautiful spirit entity that was wearing revealing clothing, “This spirit entity is a saint level immortal spirit…why is she with him…”

In the Immortal and Desolate Realms, immortal spirits could often be found inhabiting the immortal profound treasures. These immortal spirits also had their own hierarchy and were ranked mortal, earth, heaven, celestial and saint. Saint level immortal spirits were the rarest and the most powerful.

With a saint level immortal spirit, it was possible to refine the most powerful profound treasures.

“This is clearly impossible…”

“If I have one then I may refine her to return to the Immortal Realm and may even restore to my peak…”

But that was not her main concern now as she touched her neck.

It was because there was a profound collar that had formed around her neck. This was actually a slave collar that could only be seen by her ‘master’ and the other immortals. This was formed when she had that suffer a backlash caused for invoking the Lightning Tribulation.

And of course there may be some powerful celestial cultivators that had superb divine sense that was on par with an immortal that could see this slave collar but that was only in very extreme cases.

This almost invisible collar was her ultimate humiliation!

She had to seek her ‘new master’ and be subservient to him or else her soul sea would be damaged and she may even lose her immortal body.

All of a sudden she had an idea, “Since this immortal spirit can remove the link with my celestial sword, maybe she can also remove this slave collar…”

She was actually unsure because she had little experiences dealing with immortal spirits and did not know their exact range of unique abilities.

With a heavy sigh, “I can’t allow myself to fall into the hands of this unruly man. With my peerless allure, he will surely defile me and my humiliations will be endless.”

All of a sudden she had another idea as she took out a precious scroll, the Spirit Beast Transformation Scroll.

She was smiling bitterly. “In the end, I have to transform myself into a lowly animal to preserve my dignity.”

She fingered her burning slave collar before finally putting down the stone that was in her heart. “This is better than being violated by him…”

With melancholy sighs, she stripped herself naked before using the scroll to transform herself into a beautiful silver fox.

This beautiful silver fox had deep golden eyes with purple rings and a long beautiful fur tail that had eight other protruding smaller tails.

“This goddess here will find a way to kill this unruly master! Bai Qianfeng, why are you so down on your luck?”

Chapter 68: Night of Temptation (2)

Yuan Ji, Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue were now rolling in the bed that was in Yuan Ji’s room.

The room was completely voided of light because they did not need any light to see.  After all, they were all the cultivatiors of the highest realm level with the Darksee ability. It was an ability that all the cultivators could gain at the middle tier of the fourth realm immortal celestial level.

With expert fingers, Yuan Ji had loosened their silk belts and they had also loosened his.

In a blink of an eye, Yuan Ji had removed all their outer garment except for their lingeries as he threw their skirts, robes, socks and inner garments off the bed.

Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue were now gasping with anticipations as they proceeded to remove Yuan Ji’s clothing at the same time.

Yuan Ji grinned as he pulled off their lingeries before keeping it into his spatial ring.

Next he proceeded to fondle their ample bosoms and backs; their bodies were really silky smooth with a wondrous fragrance.

“Ah~~~” They were moaning with delight when Yuan Ji had suddenly squeezed their perky bosoms hard.

Yuan Ji laughed, “I am so lucky to have a chance to bed two such wondrous beauties.”

In no time he had also pulled down their undies and he was feeling them the smoothness of their butts before his fingers were feeling their forbidden cherries between their legs. It was soapy wet and they were now flustered with ecstasy.

“Ah~~~”

“Aww~”

Slowly he used his fingers to peel open their folds underneath and he was fingering them…

Either he or Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue had realized that Ling Feiyue had quietly entered the courtyard of the room.

Ling Feiyue’s eyes were still bleary red as she entered the courtyard.

She had not left yet because she still did not believe that Yuan Ji could be so heartless to her. She had clearly felt his sentimental concerns for her during the trials. This could not be faked. Moreover he had also created a poem specifically for her. Also if they did not have such perfect synergy, will they be able to create a combine profound art that they can use together?

Therefore she wanted to confront Yuan Ji one last time to hear his difficulties.

“Maybe he didn’t want to put me in a tight spot…”

“Maybe he knows that he may not survive the duel…”

She was frantically looking for an excuse for him…

But when she had just stepped into the courtyard, her divine senses could pick up a couple of soft moans and whispers.

“Ah~~ I’m so wet now…”

“Handsome Yuan Ji, stop teasing us already…”

“Hubby Yuan Ji, can you dedicate a poem for us?”

“Sure, sure!” Yuan Ji was laughing softly.

Ling Feiyue was a great saintess of the highest tier. Therefore her divine sense could pick up a range that was further than Yuan Ji, Hua Baiyue and Hua Wuwu, without alerting them.

When she had heard what they were doing, she gasped silently as she burst into uncontrollable silence tears.

“Ji Yuan, you rather have them than me…why…”

“You…really dislike me?”

“It is not because you don’t want to hurt me but because you really making use of me?”

Ling Feiyue leaned quietly on the wall as she sobbed silently. It took her a while to calm down before she took off tearfully, “From today onward, there is no more Ling Feiyang. There is only Dark Mistress Ling Feiyue who will be the demoness of the orthodox fraternity…I will not have any lofty dreams of being an orthodox cultivator anymore…”

When she had left, there was a large patch of tears on the ground where she had last stood; Ling Feiyue had been thoroughly hurt and she had never been so grieved before.

A quiet shadow was sighing softly and had appeared where Ling Feiyue had last stood…

Unknown to even Ling Feiyue, there was another person that was quietly watching in the courtyard. Even with Ling Feiyue’s formidable divine sense, this quiet shadow was invisible to her.

Yuan Ji, Hua Baiyue and Hua Wuwu naturally did not know what was going on outside. Their divine senses were diminished because all their focuses were on one another.

Yuan Ji was now frowning in secret and he had a perplexed look. “They are still pure? I can’t be wrong. But what the heck is their dual cultivation if they are still pure?!”

He was a little bewildered but this did not have any impact on his quiet plans.

All of a sudden he had slapped their butts and kicked them down the bed with a soft chuckle. “I am going to bed now. You may have the floor.”

Hua Wuwu and Hua Baiyue were shocked as they questioned him, “Why did you kick us down the bed for? You don’t want to save Xue Qianxue anymore? You don’t want to know the weakness of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace anymore?”

Yuan Ji grinned at them, “Naturally I will still want to save Xue Qianxue and the two of you will help me. As for the weakness of the Hundred Flower Divine Palace, I actually did not want to know because I want to win fair and square.”

The second part was of course true. Yuan Ji really wanted to win fair and square or else he would not have attained as a Sword Saint.

Hua Wuwu hummed coldly, “Dream on! You didn’t pleasure us so why should we help you at all?”

Yuan Ji chuckled softly before he said in a low voice, “Do you want me to show your lingeries to your old master? If I do, can you imagine what your fates will be? Don’t tell me that your old master will not recognize your scents and your lingeries?”

Hua Baiyue was startled as she stammered, “Don’t…you will get us killed…”

Hua Wuwu had also turned ashen, “Yuan Ji! You are so badass! You will rather have rotten apples than fresh apples!”

“Sister, let’s go.” Hua Baiyue said as she gathered her clothing.

Hua Wuwu nodded as she hastily put on her clothing.

“Yuan Ji, we won’t forget about this slight!” Hua Baiyue warned him.

With that, they had hastily left his room.

Yuan Ji laughed after them before he lay on his bed dreamily, “Now the night is finally peaceful again…”

He was soon sighing before he muttered, “Not so peaceful…”

It was because he was suddenly thinking of Ling Feiyue and was heart wrenched at how he had hurt her earlier. His thoughts had immediately flashback to the day that he had first realized that Ling Feiyue was a maiden…

That day, she was extremely breathtaking and he got a hard on just by listening to her beautiful tune that she was humming.

Ling Feiyue’s lovable smiles were the most beautiful smile that he had ever seen. But he had now caused her to lose her smiles…

“I hope that you will forget this hurt as soon as possible. I am not worthy of your time…”

Chapter 4: Xia Jiaqing

The Palace Mistress of the Emperor Hall Sect, Xia Jiaqing was now sitting serenely on her throne in the Great Emperor Hall and standing in front of her were her four elders, Li Qiang, Hai Sheng, Deng Qiu and Tang Ao.

The astonishing peerless beauty of Xia Jiaqing had never failed to astonish the four elders whenever they had an audience with her.

Her exquisite stately appearance, coupled with her sparking golden eyes, a heavy and upright bosom, coupled with her revealing legs that reached to her waist could cause even a cultivator with a high level of divinity to go berserk with lust.

But that was only normal or else Xia Jiaqing would not be renowned as one of four great beauties of the Desolate Celestial Fraternity.

Even the eyes of the four elders were constantly looking lecherous at her and they could not wait to tear off her clothing if they were given an opportunity.

Today she had wound up her long hair into a cute bun on her left and a short pony tail on her right; she looked extremely appealing as she listened innocently to the reports of the four elders who were stripping her with their eyes.

Xia Jiaqing looked a little disappointed when the reports had finished.

“Are there any movements from Xue Qianxue?” She inhaled a soft sigh as she said gently.

Xue Qianxue was the Sacred Maiden of the Celestial Orthodox Sect and also a seventh realm golden saintess. She was also one of the four great beauties of the Desolate Celestial Fraternity and was a hated rival of Xia Jiaqing.

If there was a person that she could not stand, it was Xue Qianxue.

Therefore she was always particularly interested to know what Xue Qianxue was always up to.

“Ever since that shameless Xue Qianxue had become a saintess, she thinks that she is the number one heroine of the Desolate Celestial Fraternity but she is nothing but a harlot.” Xia Jiaqing really did not mince her words.

Li Qiang quickly said, “There are no unusual movements from Sacred Maiden Xue Qianxue.”

Xia Jiaqing frowned lightly, “Really? This is such an unusual month then.”

“Very well then. Dismiss…”

All of a sudden, a protégé had hastily entered the Great Emperor Hall and said panicky. “My respect to the Palace Mistress and the elders, I have something urgent to report.”

Li Qiang smiled coldly, “Speak.”

The protégé had broken into cold sweat as he said, “There is a man name Yuan Ji outside. He has brought back the bodies of Hai Guotian and Deng Chao.”

When the protégé had said that, Hai Sheng and Deng Qiu were taken aback and they had muttered out at the same time. “My son!…”

Li Qiang clenched his fists, “I know this Yuan Ji…”

Xia Jiaqing was also startled. “Who dares to kill our core protégés? This Yuan Ji is the killer?”

The protégé shook his head with a frightened look, “He says that he isn’t the killer and had found the bodies. He even says that he is willing to join the Emperor Hall Sect as a core protégé and he is asking for a reward for bringing back the bodies.”

Xia Jiaqing blinked her lovely eyes, “Core protégé…asking for a reward…what audacity…” She quickly recollected her thoughts and said coolly, “Summon him here. I want to question him personally. And bring the bodies here. I want to examine the wounds.”

Hai Sheng and Deng Qiu had immediately fallen on their knees, “Palace Mistress, you must seek address for our sons!”

Deng Qiu said grievously, “I say that he is the killer!”

Hai Sheng bemoaned loudly, “My only son…Guotian, you are so pitiful! Who is so heartless as to take away your life…”

Xia Jiaqing said coolly, “My elders, do not grieve further. I will surely seek address for your sons’ deaths.”

A while later, Yuan Ji had entered the Great Emperor Hall. Behind him were a dozen protégés of the Emperor Hall Sect and they were carrying two bodies on a stretcher.

Xia Jiaqing gasped silently when she saw Yuan Ji, “What a dashing man. But why is that I found him so familiar?”

When Yuan Ji had entered the hall and saw Xia Jiaqing, he was blinking his eyes and was staring at this peerless beauty. It was not because he was stunned by her beauty but it was because he had recognized her.

He thought, “Isn’t she Xia Jiajia? Xia Jiajia is actually Xia Jiaqing?!”

Xia Jiaqing had quickly flashed to the two stretchers and had bended over to examine the bodies and she was followed by the four elders.

Yuan Ji saw could see her beautiful exposed white shoulders from where he was standing and his sharp eyes could see that she was wearing a white panties.

He had nearly nose bleed from her beautiful sexy appearance but he quickly steeled his heart. “She is the enemy of my Orthodox Sword Sect. If it isn’t for her and her Emperor Hall Sect, Ye Chengxi won’t be in this state.”

Finally Xia Jiaqing said quietly, “This is the work of a super swordsman. They had died instantly with no pain.”

Li Qiang had also concluded the same, “Their killer must be at least a fifth realm expert. Do you think it may be Fairy Ye Chengxi?”

Xia Jiaqing shook her head, “I know her. Her swordplay isn’t that swift and…ruthless. Therefore the killer isn’t her or him.”

Him referred to Yuan Ji.

Li Qiang turned to stare coldly at Yuan Ji, “I know you. You are that young man that I’ve met previously. Why are you here?”

Yuan Ji said politely, “Actually I have some regrets after I had joined the Orthodox Sword Sect. Therefore I have bid my former Master Ye Chengxi farewell and have made my way here. On my way here, I’ve found the bodies of these men. I have recognized them when they had come to the Orthodox Sword Sect for a visit…”

Xia Jiaqing asked unhappily, “Why did they go to the Orthodox Sword Sect for? Who gives them the permission?”

All of a sudden the four elders were all stammering, “This…that…”

Hai Sheng quickly said, “Some of the interests are due. So I had asked my son to pay Fairy Ye Chengxi a visit…”

Xia Jiaqing returned a cold stare at him, “When did I say you can collect any interest from Fairy Ye Chengxi? Have you forgotten what I have said? Am I not the Palace Mistress?”

Hai Sheng stammered, “Yes, yes…”

Yuan Ji was startled as he thought, “She isn’t aware? Or is she putting an act in front of me?”

Then Xia Jiaqing had turned to look at Yuan Ji with a smile, “Thank you for bringing them back. I will make an exception for you. As your reward, you shall be a core protégé of the Emperor Hall Sect.”

Li Qiang protested immediately, “I think we can just make him a common protégé. He isn’t fit to be a core protégé and he may be a spy of the Orthodox Sword Sect.”

When they had first met, Li Qiang had said to Yuan Ji about making him a protégé of the Emperor Hall Sect, it was never as a core protégé.

Xia Jiaqing said coldly, “I have already decided. Dismiss.”

Hai Sheng and Deng Qiu immediately said, “What about the deaths of our sons?”

Xia Jiaqing hummed coldly, “The deaths of your sons are not the work of the Orthodox Sword Sect. This, I am pretty sure. They must have offended some powerful cultivators with their ugly appearances.

Hai Sheng and Deng Qiu were stunned by Xia Jiaqing heartless words. She had called their sons ugly and seemingly hinted to them that they should be killed.

“Dismiss! What are you waiting for?” Xia Jiaqing said coldly. “As for this new core protégé, he can stay here for a while. I have some questions for him.”

Yuan Ji blinked his eyes. She had not changed after all these years. One of these days, she would surely die without knowing even why.

When Hai Sheng and Deng Qiu had left the hall, they were trembling with hatred. This did not escape Yuan Ji’s eyes but it seemed that it had escaped Xia Jiaqing’s notice.

When the four elders had left the hall, Xia Jiaqing had turned to him with a wryly smile. “So, between your former master Fairy Ye Chengxi and me, who is the prettier?”

Yuan Ji: …

The female attendants behind Xia Jiaqing were all giggling at the question.

But Yuan Ji could see the murderous intent that was in Xia Jiaqing’s lovely eyes.

If he answered wrongly then he would be dead in the next instant.

But he raised his head to say, “Fairy Ye Chengxi…”

All of a sudden the female protégés at the back stopped their giggling and they had turned ashen.

Even the smile that was on Xia Jiaqing had completely vanished and her lovely eyes were looking coldly at him.

Chapter 127: Calamity Luck

“Senior Brother, I wonder…if you have anyone in your heart already?”

This was the question that was posed by Leng Qiuyue and she was now looking shyly at him as she waited for his reply.

There was a blanked expression in Lu Qingyun’s eyes as he did not know how he was going to answer her. He was not too dense to know that Leng Qiuyue was looking at him with an expression that was not of the norm.

He had suddenly remembered a story of a scholar who was once hotly pursued by three hot beauties. As he could not choose who he wanted to be with in the end and was afraid that he would hurt them so he had chosen to fake his own death.

But this story had nothing to do with her question…

He could not tell anyone that he was together with the sect leader or this would be a major scandal in the clan and in New Empyrean City. But at the same time, he was afraid of hurting her.

Leng Qiuyue averted her glances and said melancholy, “Actually I know that you have already someone in your heart.”

“You do?” Lu Qingyun was startled.

Leng Qiuyue nodded shyly, “It has to be her. Only she does not despise you from the very start and you are with her the whole time. It is only natural that you will have developed feelings for each other. Compare to her, I am far inferior.”

Lu Qingyun was startled. Was she referring to Lie Xingyuan? Xingyuan was like a little sister to me…

Leng Qiuyue looked up to him and smiled coyly, “You have saved my life three times. How do you think that I ought to repay you? It seems that in this lifetime…I…am struck with you already.”

Lu Qingyun blinked his eyes. Did he hear her correctly? She was actually confessing to him?!

He had never had anyone confessing to him and moreover Leng Qiuyue was well-known as the icy beauty in the clan. She was someone that he would never expect to take such an initiative…

“I…I…” Lu Qingyun was so caught up by surprise that he was stammering.

Leng Qiuyue looked away shyly, “Senior brother, do you despise me?”

Lu Qingyun was stammering, “Of course not…”

There was a delightful look on Leng Qiuyue as she smiled shyly, “That is…good enough for me!” With that, she had hastily walked away while leaving Lu Qingyun to stammer almost incoherently to himself. “Junior Sister Qiuyue…likes me…”

“I think I’ve better stay in my abode today…” he was murmuring to himself when he saw a familiar looking old man with pure white hair that was quietly approaching him.

This old man, was he not that fortune-teller that he had met some time ago?

The old man gave him an unhappy look before he said solemnly, “Did I not warn you that you may have some peach blossom luck lately?”

Lu Qingyun seemed to have recalled that so he nodded lightly.

“Did I not also warn you that you will be a calamity star to your beloved?” the old man added solemnly.

Lu Qingyun was startled as he replied, “I forget…”

Was it because of him that Keqin was forced to enter into her cultivation seclusion?

The old man was startled and he started to rebuke him furiously, “How dare you forget about my advice to you?! Do you want to bring upon her a great calamity then you will be satisfied?”

Lu Qingyun had no idea why this old man had suddenly flown into a rage. In fact he had no idea that a stranger would fly into a rage just because he had forgotten to take his advice.

The truth was, he had really forgotten about it. He had a perfect memory usually but in front of Qin Keqin, he would even forget who his old master was and even the three unbreakable rules that his old master had set for him were all gone like the winds.

A short while ago, he had even thought of giving up on Keqin and had considered with utmost seriousness to break off with her because he knew that he was not the man of her heart. But within three minutes of seeing her once again, he had totally forgotten about it.

All of a sudden Lu Qingyun had a sheepish look on him as he had suddenly remembered this old man and his weak attempt to give up on Qin Keqin.

In front of Qin Keqin, it was as though he had lost his soul and he could think of nothing else.

“Young man! Have your lustful heart got over to your head that you have forgotten my good advice to you?!” The old man stared at him with a furious and unhappy look.

Lu Qingyun smiled bitterly, “I…remember now…”

“You remember?! Are you sure about it?!” the old man rebuked him.

Lu Qingyun was thinking, “How did he know about me and Keqin?” So he asked, “How do you know that I have not broken up with the maiden of my heart?”

The old man laughed coldly, “I know that you will surely ask me this. Because I can still see the dark looming calamity star that is between your forehead that threaten to harm her destiny! Don’t forget that I am a fortune-teller!”

Lu Qingyun said politely, “Old Sir, do you have any remedy? It is because I really don’t want to leave her.”

The old man said coldly, “You don’t want to leave her because you are lusting after her, am I right and not because you truly love her. If you truly love someone then you must give her up for the sake of her happiness!”

“Old Sir. If you have a good remedy to share with me, please let me know!” There was a panic look in Lu Qingyun’s eyes as he asked the old man.

The old man hummed coldly, “Why are you being so stubborn? Just leave her and everything will soon be alright! You can have all the other maidens in the world but not her!”

Lu Qingyun growled suspiciously and said rudely, “Old man. I think you are a fake.”

The old man smiled coldly, “I am a fake? Young fellow. Do you know who I am? I’m the Three-Destiny Old Man, the foreteller of the three destinies. I know all of heavens’ secret. How dare you say that I am fake!”

Lu Qingyun muttered, “I’ve never heard of any Three-Destiny Old Man.”

The old man: …

“Hahaha, that is because I like to keep a low profile. That’s why you may have never heard of me. But why am I helping you? It is because we share some karmic fate! Why do you think that I will bother to help you?” the old man quickly added.

Lu Qingyun saw that the air of this old man was indeed extraordinary and he quickly made an apology, “Please pardon me for overlooking you. I really didn’t mean to be offensive.”

“So you will leave her as soon as possible?”

Lu Qingyun sighed, “I wish that I can but we have already…”

He had already kissed Keqin on a number of occasions and he had even touched her. How could he let her down by leaving her?

“What did you just say?! You have already…” the old man was furious. He had thought that Lu Qingyun and Qin Keqin had already copulated and he was now speechless with rage.

“Therefore, I really can’t leave her just like this.” Lu Qingyun added with another soft sigh.

The old man was really infuriated. “What have you done?!”

Lu Qingyun was staring blankly at the old man and he asked with great earnest, “What have I done? Did I do anything wrong?”

“It is too late now…” the old man was sighing regretfully.

“Did I do anything wrong?” Lu Qingyun muttered as he continued to stare at the old man.

The old man stared coldly at him, “Everything that you’ve done is wrong!”

Lu Qingyun: …

“You have completely ruined her!” the old man added.

Lu Qingyun muttered, “It is not too late to make amends right? I can leave her. I just don’t want anything to happen to her.”

The old man seemed to have calmed down a little when he had heard him. He shot him a cold look before he said, “This is your last chance. Leave her or you will bring upon a calamity on her!”

Lu Qingyun stammered nervously, “Thank you for your instructions. I will be mindful about it.”

“Don’t forget that I’m the Three-Destiny Old Man! You are just lucky to have me to point you to the correct path! Remember, this is heavens’ secrets that we are sharing now. Tell no one about this! Absolutely no one!” the old man warned him severely. “If you truly love her, prove it by leaving her!”

As the old man left, Lu Qingyun was left to lament loudly to the heavens, “O Heavens! Is there anyone in the Nine Celestial Fraternity that is more miserable than me right now?!”

Qiuxiang Mei had summoned Tang Bufan and was solemnly questioning him, “I have heard that you and my daughter Qiuxiang Huan have been really quite intimate as of late.”

Tang Bufan replied nervously, “We are just good friends.”

Qiuxiang Mei hummed coldly, “Don’t forget that you are now just a protégé of the Clear Sky Pavilion and there are rules that you have to follow.”

Tang Bufan smiled weakly, “I do. May Pavilion Mistress be rest assures that I will follow the rules faithfully.”

Qiuxiang Mei walked quietly to the sword stand as she brandished a long sword before she said coldly, “I had heard something from a maid that you had stepped out of her room in the middle of the night.”

Tang Bufan had turned ashen immediately, “No, it is only a misunderstanding. You can ask Qiuxiang Huan…”

“My daughter will naturally defend you.” Qiuxiang Mei interrupted sharply.

Then she gave him a cold smile, “Do you know that my daughter is now engaged to Young Master Ling Chong of the Flying Armament Sect?”

Tang Bufan nodded as he returned a weak smile. How could he not know?

“Good. Since you’ve already known about it, why are you staying so close to my daughter? I don’t want her to have any blemishes or scandals before her marriage. Do you understand?”

Tang Bufan smiled weakly, “I…I understand.”

“Good.” Qiuxiang Mei gave him a cold look before a wryly smile appeared on her. “As for that maid that saw you leaving my daughter’s room, I had already sent her to the grave.”

Tang Bufan was so startled that he quickly fell onto his knees. “Pavilion Mistress, I hope that you will have mercy on me. I will not dare to be so close to Qiuxiang Huan again!”

Qiuxiang Mei smirked coldly, “This won’t do. I can see that your cultivation strength seems to have been reaping some benefits lately. Is it because you have been riding my daughter lately?”

Tang Bufan was thinking, “She has found out about my affair with Qiuxiang Huan…” But still he dared not admit it.

Qiuxiang Mei smiled, “Get up first. If I want to kill you, I won’t wait until now. If I want to kill you, I won’t silence the maid. After all, I don’t want to make my daughter sad, do I? So get up first.”

Tang Bufan slowly got up as he thought, “I am safe now?”

Just as he had muttered out a soft sigh of relief, a flash of the sword that was in Qiuxiang Mei’s hands had slashed below him.

Immediately the lower part of his robe was tainted with blood and Tang Bufan had turned extremely pale!

Qiuxiang Mei smiled quietly, “I will only trust the words of a eunuch. I don’t know how you’ve managed to trick her into your bed but this will be your last time. Do you think that my swordplay is swift and painless?”

Tang Bufan could not answer her because he had passed out all of a sudden!

His last thoughts were, “Heavens! Is there be a more unlucky person than I am elsewhere in the Nine Celestial Fraternity right now…”

Chapter 52: Return to the Heavens Ridge Villa

“See you again next time,” Ling Chong bade Lu Qingyun and the rest of his party farewell.

Lu Qingyun replied heartily, “Brother Ling Chong, see you soon.”

“Farewell…” Fairy Ling Xiu muttered with a heavy heart. This adventure had ended a little too soon…

She took a last forlorn look at Lu Qingyun before she departed with her brother Ling Chong. Now that they had exited the Misty Desolate Valley, it was time for them to return home.

Although her glances upon Lu Qingyun were subtle, it was not totally lost on Ouyang Xue, Leng Qiuyue and Lie Xingyuan. Maybe they had viewed her as a competitor and that was why they were paying more attention to her.

With Qin Keqin around, Fairy Ling Xiu really did not dare to say much. Moreover she was also quite shy as this was the first time that she had liked someone.

With a melancholy heart, she had left and wondered when would be the next time that she would see him again…

Qin Keqin turned to say to Lu Qingyun, “Qingyun, I will be staying at your abode when we return to the Heavens Ridge Ville. Aren’t you glad?”

Lu Qingyun was startled and was really happy. So he said excitingly, “I’ve much to learn from my master.”

Qin Keqin chuckled softly, “But don’t say I didn’t warn you first. I won’t teach you my alchemy skills until you have shown some improvement in your martial levels.”

Lu Qingyun smiled awkwardly as he thought wryly, “Hmm, I think my alchemy skills are much better anyway…”

Qin Keqin turned to look at Lie Xingyuan, “Xingyuan, someone wants to see you. You should go and talk to her.”

Lie Xingyuan was startled. There was no need for Qin Keqin to say more. That someone was her master. She was thinking, “They have met again?”

While Lie Xingyuan was thinking about her master, Ouyang Xue and Leng Qiuyue had a quiet disappointment on their countenances. “Sect leader is going to stay with Senior Brother Qingyun from now onward?”

This fact alone killed off any chances of them ever visiting him…

Ouyang Xue had wanted to forget about him so she had a determined thought, “Isn’t that good? Then I can truly forget about him from now onward…”

After they had returned to the Heavens Ridge Villa, the experiential party made a quick report to Elder Bu Ming who received them with a startled expression, “What? This is the essence spirit of a fifth rank Hundred Eyes Beast? You have actually killed it?”

Bu Ming was starting in disbelief at the bounty that was collected as he muttered, “I will record all your contributions down. All of you may return to your dwellings first.”

He took a glance at Qin Keqin as she departed with Lu Qingyun and Lie Xingyuan as he wondered, “Is it considered to be cheating if our sect leader helps them in this manner? Alas, I can’t complaint against Grand Elder Ouyang Xue or Sect Leader Qin. They are my seniors…”

As Lu Qingyun left with Qin Keqin, he whispered to her. “Master, I’ve noticed that my divine sword seems to have a strange dull on it. I wonder why it is so?”

Qin Keqin chuckled, “You mean ever since that day when I’ve borrowed it from you to defeat Supremacy Wen Hongguang?”

Lu Qingyun nodded as he replied, “Yes, that’s right.”

After a quick paused, he said. “The first time that I’ve seen it, it was a godly divine sword and then it is now a half-step divine sword?”

Qin Keqin gave him a sly look as she laughed jovially, “When I had borrowed from you that day, I had purposely used my profound aura to suppress the sword aura. So when you have taken it out, it had the aura of a half-step divine sword. Divine swords are sentient swords that can recognize their masters. Although I had given the divine sword to you, it is still able to recognize me as its former mistress.”

Lu Qingyun asked, “Huh? Why should you do that? I mean why did master intentionally suppress the aura of the divine sword to make it appear as though it is weaker?”

Qin Keqin chuckled, “It is always not a good idea to flaunt off something so precious, am I right? Although a half-step divine sword is still extremely rare but it is still not good enough to cause everyone to steal it from you. But if it is a godly divine sword…”

“Master, you have the better foresight than me. Now I know the reason.” Lu Qing smiled. His master was indeed thinking three steps ahead of everything.

Qin Keqin smiled, “It seems that you have been using it quite well during the experiential mission.”

Lu Qingyun nodded, “The result is much better than I’ve expected. If it isn’t for the divine sword that master had given to me, I won’t be able to kill that fifth rank Hundred Eyes Beast.”

“That is good. Keep up the good work, my good disciple!” Qin Keqin chuckled.

Lie Xingyuan who had been following them was gasping secretly, “Senior brother actually has a godly divine sword and no one has noticed?!”

“Although the aura of the divine sword is suppressed, it is still nevertheless a godly divine sword. Please use it with care. This divine sword will aid you in the future as you slay demons and gods.” Qin Keqin said casually.

Lu Qingyun nodded as he asked, “What is the name of this divine sword?”

“Mm, Fairy Jade Light.” She replied.

“Huh?! Isn’t this the name of our founder and your mother consort?” he said weakly.

Qin Keqin looked a little sheepish. At that time she had used the name of this sword as her alias when she was being forced to accept the position of founder as goodwill. She did not want anyone to really know who she was and therefore she had hastily made up an alias on the spot.

Lie Xingyuan smiled and said, “This divine sword must have belonged to our founder and it was later given to our acting sect leader.”

Qin Keqin muttered sheepishly as she took a quick glance at Lie Xingyuan, “That’s right…you’re right…”

“Oh I see!” said Lu Qingyun with a knowing nod. Now that made perfect sense to him.

Lie Xingyuan was thinking, “I know that you are faking your current identity. Fairy Jade Light Yuhuan and Qin Keqin is actually the same person…”

Qin Keqin smiled as she looked at Lie Xingyuan, “Mm, don’t forget to go meet your friend. She is anxious for you. Take your own sweet time and you may stay out overnight. I’ve no issue with that.”

Lie Xingyuan: …

Lu Qingyun said respectfully, “Master, this won’t do. I rather that Xingyuan will be back as early as possible. You may not know about this but there was an accidentally some time ago…”

Lie Xingyuan was smiling bitterly to herself, “Your master certainly knew about that. She was the one that had kidnapped me.”

When Leng Qiuyue had returned to the Red Heaven Sword Hall, her master Celestial Shi Guanyin had a look of relief on her countenance as she rebuked her gently, “This is too reckless. I hope that you will learn you lesson the next time. It is lucky that our sect leader is there to aid you. Look at you. You have injuries everywhere. What if your cultivation were to impair in the future?”

Nangong Yu and Li Chen were also presented. They were her senior and junior brothers respectively as well as the core disciples of her master.

Leng Qiuyue said nonchalantly, “Master, I thank you for your deep concern but your disciple is really alright now. Compared to the injuries of some of the protégés that are with me, my injuries are nothing at all.”

Shi Guanyin said with a heavy disapproval, “I don’t care about the ordinary protégés. I care for you because you are my disciple. Please get your priorities right. In the future, you will be expected to step over the corpses of hundreds of ordinary protégés just to reach to a higher realm level. Your life is to your master and the Heavens Ridge Villa! This time, you are lucky to be alive. I hope that you will not make the same mistake ever again.”

Leng Qiuyue moved her lips silently but there were no words. She knew that her master was really concerned about her and was upset with her for making such a rush act.

As she hung her head in shame, she said quietly. “This experiential mission is a success because of Senior Brother Lu who is with us. I owe it to him that I am alive.”

Nangong Yu, initial fourth realm immortal celestial as well as the oldest disciple of Shi Guanyin said mockingly, “My junior sister, he is only a lowly first realm cultivator and can’t amount to anything great. You are exaggerating too much.”

Leng Qiuyue stared coldly at him and said, “I’m not. He is already a third realm cultivator. If you don’t believe, you can have the testing stone to validate his cultivation level.”

Nangong Yu smiled wryly, “He is only a first realm cultivator as recently as a month ago. The testing stone won’t be wrong. Moreover you know the rules of the clan. You are only allowed to take the testing stone examination every three years. The only exception is when an ordinary protégé thinks that they may have breakthrough to the third realm and wants a re-examination. However if the claim turns out to be false, the ordinary protégé will be severely punished.”

Then he laughed coldly, “I am sure that Lu Qingyun knows about this more than anyone of us here. He is just eager to impress you in order to make that claim. Just think about it, if he is really a third realm cultivator now, why didn’t he inform the elders about it and request for a re-examination? That is because he is only trying to make a good impression out of you.”

Leng Qiuyue said coldly, “He has killed a fifth rank desolate beast and the Flying Armament Sect can be his witnesses.”

“Oh?” Nangong Yu smiled coldly, “But do we have any protégés from the Heavens Ridge Villa seeing that account? If I am not wrong, he must be in cahoots with the Flying Armament Sect and they are just giving him the credit in order to groom their future spy in the Heavens Ridge Villa. You are still too young and do not know the evils of the world, especially the world of cultivators.”

Li Chen nodded and said, “Senior brother here is right. Junior sister, you ought to exercise caution and never trust anyone so readily. He is just a handsome face and a good-for-nothing cultivator-”

“That is enough!” Leng Qiuyue said coldly as she turned around to storm off.

Even Shi Guanyin was startled as she looked at Nangong Yu and Li Chen. It was because Leng Qiuyue had always maintained a cold and quiet demeanor. She was not someone who would lose her composures or emotions so readily. But lately she was acting too strange?

Nangong Yu had a look of jealousy in his eyes as he cursed silently, “This Lu Qingyun. How dare he try to steal the heart of my junior sister. I will surely make him pay dearly for this. She can only belong to me and only I am fit to be her future companion.”

Chapter 39: Shocking Lie Xingyuan

When Lu Qingyun opened his eyes, he found himself on his bed and there was Lie Xingyuan who was looking tenderly at him.

When she saw that he had opened his eyes, she said excitingly, “Senior brother, you have finally woke up! Do you know that you have been sleeping for the past three days?”

He was startled and was muttering, “What? I’ve been sleeping for three days? Xingyuan, thank you for putting me on my bed…”

Lie Xingyuan smiled, “It is Yan’Er who told me about your condition. She is spirit and can’t move you so she sought help from me.”

Then she lowered her glances as she said quietly and her eyes were full of concern, “Senior brother, it is alright to fail. Don’t make it so hard for yourself, alright? Even if you don’t win in the competition, there is nothing to be ashamed about. You will always be my senior brother and the person that I will respect the most. Please drop that sword art that you are learning. You are only killing yourself in this manner.”

Lu Qingyun grinned, “Alright I will stop practicing from now on. Actually I have already mastered the Flaming Crimson Sword to the third stage. So I can finally take a break now.”

Lie Xingyuan was startled, “You what? But this is impossible…”

He laughed softly, “And I am now an upper third realm expert. It is all thanks to Yan’Er.”

Lie Xingyuan: …

Upper third realm expert! That was the same level as Ouyang Xue and Leng Qiuyue! Moreover he had even mastered past the first stage of the Flaming Crimson Sword in a matter of days and had even attained to the third stage? This was monstrous talent at work.

She stared with disbelief at Lu Qingyun, “I don’t get it…”

To jump two small realms in a matter of days especially as a Third Realm Expert was almost totally unheard of.

Lu Qingyun grinned, “It is hard for me to explain now as I am a little confused myself. But yes, I manage to do it.”

Then he paused for a little while, “Did Keqin…erm I mean master looks for me while I was in the practice chamber?”

Lie Xingyuan shook her head, “No, she did not come at all.”

She was secretly upset with Qin Keqin for not coming to look for Lu Qingyun. Maybe she did not want to see her therefore she did not want to come at all. But Lu Qingyun was her disciple and she had not even spent a single day to properly instruct him. She was a totally reckless master and unfitted to be one.

She sighed secretly. Qin Keqin was the Devil Goddess as well as the Great Saintess Fan Yuqing. Was she a good or a bad person? This, she really did not know. But since her master had made her promised not to reveal anything about Qin Keqin to Lu Qingyun or to anyone else, she had to keep her sacred promise to her master.

“Oh…” Lu Qingyun looked a little disappointed when he had heard that. He muttered, “Maybe she is really busy…”

Lie Xingyuan nodded and said, “Yes, she is probably too busy.” Too busy for you, she added silently.

Lu Qingyun quickly regained his smiles, “You know. Now that we both have a new sword art to our sleeves, we may need some practical training to see whether the sword skills that we’ve learnt are really effective. Or else we won’t know its actual performance in real combat.”

Lie Xingyuan pondered for a while before she said, “Actually all protégés of the Heavens Ridge Villa have to go for experiential training twice a year. Usually there is at least one experiential training mission every week. We can sign up for it if there is a mission slot available.”

Lu Qingyun’s eyes immediately lit up, “Oh great. Then let’s do it then.”

Lie Xingyuan responded, “I will get it done for us then.”

Lu Qingyun nodded and asked, “But I am the sect’s senior brother, can I really go?”

Lie Xingyuan smiled, “Of course you can. They will treat you as a core disciple. Other than no more than three core protégés can partake in the same experiential training, there are no other rules to prevent you from going. Moreover, it is required for everyone including the elders.”

Lu Qingyun was surprised, “Oh even the elders?”

Lie Xingyuan nodded, “The elders, even the grand elders are counted as a core protégé to assist the weaker protégés in handling the experiential training.”

“I see. What is this experiential training about then?” He said with a laugh. He did not know what it was and had already asked Xingyuan to sign them up.

“Usually it is to venture into dangerous territories to hunt some rare desolate beasts. It is nothing new actually. All experiential training can last from a week to several weeks depending on where the assigned mission is.”

Lu Qingyun smiled, “So I see. It doesn’t seem to be so difficult after all?”

Lie Xingyuan was smiling weakly, “It is usually not too difficult unless we luck out and meet with some high ranking desolate beasts.”

Lu Qingyun was grinning, “We won’t be so unlucky, am I right?”

Lie Xingyuan smiled, “With senior brother around, we will always be lucky.”

The two of them began to laugh jovially.

“Yes, we are both lucky so we won’t meet with real dangers.”

“Hopefully so.”

“Xingyuan, you got to believe in yourself…”

“I am trying very hard…”

In another part of New Empyrean City where the Solitary Manor was.

Supremacy Wen Hongguang was looking solemnly at Celestial Bai Laoxiong and Tang Bufan before he said, “That Qin Keqin, I will have my vengeance on her soon for injuring me and destroying my hard sought spirit entity.”

Due to the destruction of his spirit entity, his cultivation core was severely injured by Qin Keqin and his realm level had temporary dropped from the initial sixth realm to the intermediate fifth realm. It would take him some time to recuperate and to get back his original strength.

Celestial Bai Laoxiong cursed Qin Keqin, “I will never forget about what she had done to me. Brother Wen, I will definitely help you.”

Since he was driven out of the Heavens Ridge Villa, he had thrown his lot with Supremacy Wen and was made an elder of the Solitary Manor.

“As for my three core protégés, I will make sure that they get their deserved ends too. They had forgotten about my kindness to them and when I’m in trouble, none of them has followed me and has chosen to be tortoises in the Heavens Ridge Villa.” Celestial Bai Laoxiong was cursing loud.

Tang Bufan smiled coldly as he said politely to Celestial Bai Laoxiong, “It is lucky that I have a new master now and I am really honored to be your new core protégé.”

Celestial Bai Laoxiong smiled, “You have the potential too. I’m so glad that I’ve you as my core protégé too. In the future, just follow me and I can promise you that you will get all the wealth and women that you want.”

Tang Bufan sighed bitterly, “Right now, I’m being pursued by the Black Hands Guild. Even my butler had lost his life to protect me. Can’t we hire the assassins to assassinate Qin Keqin and Shi Guanyin instead? At least once Shi Guanyin is dead, the Black Hands Guild won’t pursue me anymore.”

Celestial Bai Laoxiong replied solemnly, “The Black Hands Guild and other assassin guilds won’t take any offer to head hunt anyone who is a fifth realm expert and above. This is their rule. For the time being, you can hide here until everything is over.”

Tang Bufan smiled bitterly. Because of Shi Guanyin and the sudden appearance of Qin Keqin who had screwed up his plans, now he had lost everything.

Supremacy Wen Hongguang smiled coldly, “Just serve me with your loyalty and I will promise you that I will help you to get back on the Heavens Ridge Villa and anyone that has offended you. I have a score to settle with Qin Keqin and the Heavens Ridge Villa as well.”

Then he had curled up his lip, “By the way, I have summoned you all to tell you a piece of good news.”

Bai Laoxiong asked, “Good news? What good news?”

Supremacy Wen Hongguang smiled, “I have managed to invite a friend that I have been courting aggressively with gifts of goodwill for a number of years. He has agreed to come to help us to deal with Qin Keqin. He is none other than the elder of the Divine Sovereign Clan, Saint Zhou Hai!”

Celestial Bai Laoxiong muttered, “Seventh realm expert…this Saint Zhou Hai will indeed be a great help but he is from the Divine Sovereign Divine Realm and the elder of one of the nine patriarch celestial clans. Such a formidable figure, he will agree to help us?”

Supremacy Wen Hongguang laughed aloud, “It is because of our friendship over the years. Moreover, the Divine Sovereign Divine Realm has always been thinking of swallowing the Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm so this is a good opportunity for them to act too.”

Celestial Bai Laoxiong said after a thought, “Brother Wen, let’s be careful on this. It may not be a good idea for the Divine Sovereign Clan to come to the Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm. This may displease our patriarch master the Heavenly Fragrance Villa. Although there is only one seventh realm expert in the entire Heavenly Fragrance Divine Realm and she is currently missing at the moment but the full strength of the Heavenly Fragrance Villa is not to be underestimated. Moreover, the Solitary Manor may run into trouble.”

“Brother Bai, this you won’t have to worry too much,” Supremacy Wen Hongguang was smiling. “I have already thought of that. Therefore Saint Zhou Hai will be coming to New Empyrean City with another alias and he will be back in a matter of weeks. By then, I will have regained my strength to the upper golden celestial level.”

When Celestial Bai Laoxiong heard him, he was relieved and he too, was smiling broadly.

Even Tang Bufan was smiling as he said, “Then I hope that Saint Zhou Hai will be able to come as soon as possible. I shall wait for that day to arrive!”

Chapter 166: Author Notes

Hello! Author here. I have some emails from interested readers who are fans of A Fluffy Cultivation.

Just to clarify. It has been a long and fluffy cultivation adventure with everyone here, thank you!

Personally I really like the story too, getting lotsa of hits here and on webnovel. It is meant to be a light comedy adventure, similar to A Martial Odyssey. It supposed to end at the Unmoving Mountains but due to its popularity, I’ve decided to extend the ending by another 30 chapters to give it a more fulfilling ending before I move on to The-Good-For-Nothing Cultivator or The Monstrous-Genius-Cultivator (Shortened to The Good-For-Nothing Cultivator in the end).

A Fluffy Cultivation is a fast pace cultivation adventure that is meant to introduce the world setting of the current celestial fraternity in a light and fun way. Some readers are thrilled that some of the characters in A Martial Odyssey is also in the Fluffy Cultivation.

Young Ye Jing may not be a perfect FL but two wrongs can make a right, that is her way. She is a heroine and also a villainess while Fan Yuqing is a villainess but also a heroine. They are each other nemesis and foes. Sometimes they are villainess at the same time, sometimes they are heroines, with their roles constantly switching due to mistrust. In the epilogue, so are they friends or foes? Or both?

If you enjoy A Fluffy Cultivation, come join me in the new adventure for The-Good-For-Nothing Cultivator with Fan Yuqing, Ye Jing, Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng in their new adventures. This is not the end but the beginning of a new adventure;)

Chapter 165: Epilogue

Two years later…

Today was the grandest wedding in the entire history of the Nine Celestial Fraternity for it was the wedding of the Nine Celestial Goddess Ye Jing to Dugu Fang. Or rather, it was the Dugu Fang who would be marrying Ye Jing and Gong Nanyan today.

Xiaofang was the hero of the Nine Celestial Fraternity and he had some renown. It was however quickly eclipsed by Ye Jing who had become the number one heroine of the Nine Celestial Fraternity. It was one of the main reasons why this wedding had been so grand.

The other main reason why it was so grand was because of Gong Nanyan. Gong Nanyan was now the new Palace Mistress of the Lofty Snow Palace. Xuan Danfeng had decided to enter seclusion and handed over the position of the Palace Mistress to her.

Also at the same time the celestial domains of the Holy Citadel City and the Lofty Snow Palace would be merged into one super domain. Ye Jing and Gong Nanyan would both jointly rule over this new super domain.

Their grand wedding was attended by many of the golden celestials, golden supremacies and sacred saints of the Nine Celestial Fraternity. To say that it was grand, was just the perfect word.

Presiding over their grand wedding as master of ceremonies was none other than the Great Saintess Ziyue and Great Saint Dong Sheng, the two most respected figure of the entire fraternity.

Numerous celestials had arrived at the Holy Citadel City and the numbers of renowned celestials were too numerous to count.

Fan Yuqing, Feng Minyue, Xuan Danfeng and Mu Huiyin were all sitting in a secluded spot as they watched the celestials below.

Because it was a secluded spot, none of the celestials noticed them for their presence would be too startling. After all, three of them were great saintess and even Feng Minyue was also an intermediate saintess.

Xuan Danfeng looked at Fan Yuqing, “I am really surprised that you will actually come.”

Fan Yuqing had a smiling curl, “Of course I have to come. This is after all the wedding of my troublesome junior sister.”

Xuan Danfeng chuckled, “I have heard that you have established a sect in New Empyrean City? In Feng Minyue’s celestial domain?”

Fan Yuqing giggled, “Not exactly but yes. They have begged to use my name to help them establish a footing.”

Xuan Danfeng smiled, “The great name of the Great Saintess Yuqing will soon make the sect a big name.”

Fan Yuqing smiled, “I have used another alias.”

Xuan Danfeng said, “Oh?”

Fan Yuqing smiled, “I am only known as Fairy Jade Light to them and Great Saintess Yuhuan to them.”

Mu Huiyin asked curiously, “I am just curious. Why are you in that desolate place in the first place?”

Fan Yuqing smiled as she looked up the heavens, “It is because one day I will find him there. I don’t know when but he will descend again…”

Suddenly all the sister saintess kept quiet for they knew that she was thinking of Dongfang Jun again…

Feng Minyue tried to change the topic and said, “Sister Saintess Yuqing, I wonder what wondrous gifts have you brought for Sister Jing on this trip?”

Fan Yuqing was suddenly laughing softly as she held her belly, “I have prepared her a big gift. A super big gift in fact. When she has returned to her bed chamber, she will be crying for joy and cursing me for the rest of her life.”

Mu Huiyin was groaning softly, “Don’t tell me that you have thrown poop on her bed…”

When she had said that, even Feng Minyue and Xuan Danfeng had turned ashen. It seemed that it would not be peaceful tonight when the two great saintess would start fighting with each other.

All of a sudden Yun Chen, Zhou Hai and Lin Wucheng had approached them. They were looking pathetic and were stinky.

Fan Yuqing had an ugly countenance when she saw them.

Lin Wucheng was smiling bitterly, “Ye Jing says she has already seen through all your mean tricks. If you want your mean tricks to succeed then you have to do it yourself. She says that she can’t stop you if you are to do it yourself but you will stink so you probably won’t.”

Fan Yuqing rolled her eyes and was speechless. After a short pause, she said. “Don’t tell me that we got a spy in our midst? Who is it? Is that Beitang Ying?”

Yun Chen was smiling weakly, “Indeed. Please forgive my wife.”

Fan Yuqing was groaning softly, “She has actually taken the side of Ye Jing. They are really very close nowadays. These bitches…”

She turned to look at Feng Minyue, Mu Huiyin and Xuan Danfeng. “Listen sisters, I have a plan. You will seduce the groom tonight…”

Mu Huiyin protested immediately, “No way. I am now with Tie Nansen. No way I’m doing that. That is below my dignity and Nansen will be upset.”

Xuan Danfeng winked at Feng Minyue, “It sounds like fun, don’t you think so?”

Feng Minyue had a slight flush on her cheeks as she said, “You’re not afraid that your disciple Gong Nanyan will fall out with you?”

Xuan Danfeng was giggling jovially, “I can pretend to be drunk…”

Everyone: …

Yun Chen was muttering to Lin Wucheng and Zhou Hai, “These beautiful saintesses are all so cunning. Sooner or later, my Ying’Er will be like them…”

Zhou Hai was laughing, “Beautiful, they are all so beautiful…”

Lin Wucheng who was looking at Fan Yuqing with interest, “Very beautiful…”

Fan Yuqing had suddenly turned to them and said, “Hmph, do you know that you stink? Why don’t you go take a bath first? I promise you if I don’t avenge your humiliation today then I am a turtle.”

Yun Chen, Zhou Hai and Lin Wucheng were all laughing as they slowly turned away while Fan Yuqing had gathered Mu Huiyin, Xuan Danfeng and Feng Minyue together to discuss the next step of their infallible plan.

“Xiaofang is soft hearted and that is his weakness. So it will be easy to handle him…”

“Yea…”

“…we can do this…”

All of a sudden Fan Yuqing had suddenly looked up and was startled. As she looked up, all the others were all looking at the same direction that she was looking at.

Fan Yuqing was suddenly smiling because she had recognized her Sister Yi Si walking slowly toward her direction.

She lit a sheepish face at her other sisters, “Guess we have to drop the plan for now. Today is Ye Jing’s lucky day for my sister is here.”

Feng Minyue muttered, “Your sister?”

Fan Yuqing nodded as she smiled wryly, “In the presence of my sister, I can only be a good sister today. How did Ye Jing manage to get her down from the immortal realm. I guess my fight with Ye Jing will be in another day and time. After all, today is her happy occasion. We should not ruin it.”

In the Nine Celestial Fraternity, the intrigues of the celestial clans are many and the alliances fragile. This is not an underestimation at all. Celestials will engage each other in battle of wits, sometimes for petty gains and even for no particular reason. It is a fraternity full of wiles and at times, a bored celestial like Fan Yuqing will appear and she will gather a number of bored celestials to her banner to wreak havoc across the nine celestial fraternity, sparing none including her junior sister Ye Jing.

Chapter 164: Daughters of the Heaven

Jian’Er was floating above the two maidens and she could sense great sadness that was coming from them…

Fan Yuqing was clearly heartbroken as she stared at the sea of lava for a long time.

Ye Jing had a more brittle heart than her and she had sobbed for a long time. This was the second time that she had wept for Dongfang Jun. When she had visited the Willow Winds Manor again, it was not so much to pay a visit Chu Yunfeng, Li’Er and Luo Bihua but to pay her respect at Dongfang Jun’s grave.

At that time she had only married Dongfang Jun because it was only to fulfill his last wish and that he needed her to protect the Willow Winds Manor for him.

After a long time had passed and the tears of both maidens had run dry, Fan Yuqing slowly took out a jade stone and said bitterly through the jade transmission array that was within. “Yuqing here. Heaveness, I have found the dark immortal. He is…now dead.”

The Heaveness voice could be heard transmitting, “So fast? Who is he and which level of the lab are you now at?”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “We are at the third level now and inside the Turtle Citadel. This isn’t an ordinary dark immortal. He is actually the reincarnation of the Great Rift Lord Xuan Yuan and is a desolate immortal.”

“This-“ the Heaveness was clearly shocked. “Then how did you defeat him? He isn’t a power that you or Ye Jing can handle. Is Ye Jing alright? Is she well?”

Fan Yuqing turned to look at Ye Jing who had remained stone, “She is alright but she is in no mood to talk.”

There was a soft heave of relief, “That is good…are you well Yuqin? I mean Yuqing.”

Fan Yuqing smiled bitterly, “I’m alright. I didn’t lose an arm or a leg. I have a few requests. I wonder if the Heaveness can accede to my requests?”

The Heaveness said, “Feel free to say.”

Fan Yuqing inhaled deeply before saying, “Can you check if Tie Nansen is alive?”

The Heaveness replied, “Give me a short while.”

It was really a short while before the Heaveness said, “Yes, he is alive. It seems that he has holed up in cave and preparing to wait out for the trial to end. He seems to be seriously injured.”

Fan Yuqing muttered, “Mu Huiyin will be pleased to hear of this news.”

Then she said, “I like to exit the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. Can it be done?”

The Heaveness replied, “I can open a portal for you but are you sure about it?”

Fan Yuqing replied, “I wish to leave this sad place…”

Ye Jing had suddenly interrupted, “I want to leave this sad place as well. Please…”

The Heaveness had heard Ye Jing and she asked with some concern, “Ye Jing, are you alright? What happens to the both of you? This sad place?” She was suddenly gasping, “Don’t tell me that the two of you have been brutalized…”

Fan Yuqing really did not know whether to laugh or cry as she quickly interrupted, “It isn’t what you think and we didn’t lose our chastity or anything.”

There was a soft sigh of relief on the Heaveness end as she muttered, “You didn’t say clearly. That is why I have misunderstood.”

Ye Jing asked Fan Yuqing, “Where are you going after you have left the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth?”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “I will like to visit this Willow Winds Manor that Dongfang Jun seems to be cherishing dearly. Can you take me there?”

Ye Jing nodded, “Yu’Er will be able to take us there.”

Then she said quietly, “I will also like to go there too and mourned for him till the end of the trial.”

Fan Yuqing took a look at Ye Jing, “Then let’s us do the same for him.”

As Ye Jing nodded, Fan Yuqing asked again. “What about Xiaofang and the rest?”

She replied, “It is best that they meditate at the wall. It is more beneficial for them to do so. They may gain valuable insights.”

Fan Yuqing looked at her, “So junior sister, how many more secrets have you been hiding from me?”

Ye Jing returned a weak glance at her, “Hmph, who is the junior sister?”

“You are…”

“Am not…”

“Why don’t you die again?…”

“Heh…fat chance…”

Ye Jing was suddenly chuckling, “Alright I do have one more secret to say. Sooner or later, you will know anyway so I may as well tell you now. I am with child now. I intend to give Xiaofang a big surprise.”

Fan Yuqing was moaning mad, “You’re not exiting the trial to mourn for Dongfang Jun, am I right? You are just trying to save yourself from the embarrassment of giving birth in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. I told you not to play with fire and now you are in a fine fix.”

Ye Jing was smiling weakly, “When did you ask me not to play with fire. You only warn me after the fire had started…”

Fan Yuqing: …

Ye Jing chuckled, “So do you want to become the god-mother to my baby?”

Fan Yuqing smiled indifferently, “Only if you acknowledge me as your senior sister, my dear junior sister.”

Suddenly Ye Jing was solemn as she quietly asked, “Sister Yuqing, so what are you planning to do after we are done with the mourning?”

Fan Yuqing smiled brightly, “I will find his new soul with the Primordial Heaven Chart. This time round, there won’t be any Shen Zhen or you to mess up my new life with him, got it?”

Ye Jing smiled weakly, “Sounds like you are treating me like your love rival. I am just thankful that you don’t snatch my Xiaofang. After all, your bewitching legs may be too much for him to handle.”

Fan Yuqing: …

Ye Jing turned solemn and said, “I hope that you will be able to find him one day and when you do, I will surely turn up for your wedding banquet.”

Fan Yuqing gave her a cold smile, “Hmph, honestly I won’t want to invite you lest he remembers you.”

Ye Jing smiled, “You are as mean as ever to me. Then I shall come uninvited.”

Fan Yuqing chuckled softly, “When did I ever stop being mean to you?”

“Never!” Ye Jing chuckled.

Fan Yuqing had stood up already, “You sure you want to come with me? You will be missing out on many lost opportunities here.”

Ye Jing smiled, “If I don’t come with you, how are you going to go to the Willow Winds Manor?”

Fan Yuqing smiled mysteriously, “I will always have a way.”

Ye Jing chuckled, “Show me your spatial ring. How many more wondrous treasures and teleportation items do you have?”

Fan Yuqing hummed coldly, “Don’t you touch me or I will slap you silly. You are only a master practitioner level here.”

“You know Sister Yuqing, actually I have a way to make a lot of soul stones from the immortals. Do you want to hear about it? We can rip them off. Together, we will be the richest immortals when we have ascended to the immortal realm. However, I will only be willing to share with you if you….you know what I mean…”

“I really don’t know what you mean…”

“……”

The Heaveness was suddenly coughing, “About that Ye Jing, I will like to hear. I won’t tell anyone about it. Not even to the Great Goddess Fantian, the Goddess Isa or the other goddesses.”

Ye Jing, Fan Yuqing: …

They had completely forgotten that the transmission array was still active…

Chapter 163: My Name is Dongfang Jun

Dongfang Jun had suddenly paused and had turned around to face Ye Jing and Fan Yuqing, “Why didn’t you take the opportunity to run?”

Ye Jing was smiling weakly, “Why should we run from you?”

Fan Yuqing nodded lightly and she was trembling, “You are not dead. I am so…glad…”

Dongfang Jun smiled coldly, “I am however glad that I am dead and finally remember who I am.”

Ye Jing smiled and her eyes began to flow, “Who you are is not important. The most important thing is that you are still alive.”

Dongfang Jun muttered, “Maiden Shen Zhen…”

Fan Yuqing looked at Ye Jing, “When did your name become Shen Zhen?”

Ye Jing asked Dongfang Jun, “Do you care to explain why you are not dead? Do you know when you have passed away, I’ve cried for an entire week.”

Dongfang Jun said quietly, “I know. I saw.”

Ye Jing was stunned, “You saw? Then why didn’t you look for me?”

Dongfang Jun nodded slowly, “Because I had awakened from my memories.”

Then he raised his fingers as a burning wisp of fireball appeared in his hands, “I need some time to cultivate back to my former strength. The Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth is a perfect place for me to regain my strength.”

Fan Yuqing asked quietly as she interrupted him, “You have forgotten about me already?”

Dongfang Jun replied coldly, “We can never be together. It is because we are mortal enemies.”

Fan Yuqing was trembling, “Just because you are a dark immortal and I am the daughter of the gods?”

Dongfang Jun nodded, “Because you are the daughter of the Great God Pangu and he is my mortal enemy who had killed me!”

Fan Yuqing was shocked, “My…father…had killed you?”

Even Ye Jing was startled but she said, “What past is past. It is extremely rare for soul to have memories of their past life. You should not bring up the past.”

Dongfang Jun smirked coldly, “What do you lowly life forms know about my great past? I reign as the Great Rift Lord Xuan Yuan over the desolate immortals. I was even once the ruler of the immortal realm. Even my heaven eye is at the ninth immortal positioning. I have a lofty existence that you cannot imagine.”

Fan Yuqing gasped softly, “You…you are the Great Rift Lord Xuan Yuan…”

The Great God Pangu had fought a bitter war with the desolate immortals when the Ancient Fortress that was led by the Great Rift Lord Xuan Yuan invaded the immortal realm 6000 years ago. In that ensuring heavenly battle, the Great Rift Lord Xuan Yuan was slain by the Great God Pangu and the desolate immortals were shattered through the cosmos.

Dongfang Jun said, “My soul is an immortal soul. I can never truly die for I am one of the greatest immortal. So how can I ever forget my past?”

Fan Yuqing gave a faint smile, “If you die one more time, maybe you can erase the past.”

Dongfang Jun’s crimson aura had exploded into a fiery phoenix form as the ground beneath them started to burn, “Unfortunately, I really don’t wish to die again.”

Fan Yuqing raised her white flute with trembling fingers, “I will help to end your lofty existence…”

Ye Jing was startled, “Sister Yuqing, are you really going to fight him? He is a good guy…”

Fan Yuqing smiled at her, “Dongfang Jun is a good person and the person that I am in love with. But the Great Lord Xuan Yuan is a tyrant desolate immortal that had killed countless people. To him, we are all lowly life forms. If I don’t stop him before he regains his full strength then a calamity is unavoidable. Moreover, there are countless numbers of desolate immortals that are waiting for his return. This is truly a calamity for the three known realms and even the desolate realm.”

Dongfang Jun said quietly, “Yuqing? So you are the Saintess Yuqing that everyone is talking about. I didn’t know that it is you.” Then he looked at Ye Jing, “Then you are also not the Maiden Shen Zhen that I have known but Maiden Ye Jing?”

Ye Jing nodded, “Yes, that is my real name…”

Dongfang Jun laughed heartily, “So I see. You are also the successor to the Heaveness. I’ve heard that you have been conferred the Nine Celestial Goddess by the gods. Good, good. The two of you are all champions of the gods.”

Fan Yuqing said quietly, “Leave her alone. She doesn’t have any martial strength in this place. Your opponent is me and me alone.”

Dongfang Jun had immediately summoned a phoenix sword as crimson flames surrounded, “Against my Annihilating Force, everything will be burned to the ashes.”

Ye Jing gasped as her perception told her that his sword was a saint-step immortal sword, the most powerful class of the immortal swords.

She shouted, “Jian’Er, come out and enshroud me with your sword aura.”

A little girl had suddenly appeared from within her and enveloped Ye Jing with her protective aura against the toxic fumes.

In the meantime, Fan Yuqing was enshrouded in her golden lotus aura and she had opened her heaven eyes to the fifth positioning.

The two of them had leapt on top two columns as their surroundings were quickly surrounded by a sea of burning lava.

Dongfang Jun said quietly, “Yuqin, we have met again…”

Fan Yuqing had a tear in her eyes as she nodded lightly, “Indeed again. But this is not the result that I want…”

Dongfang Jun smiled, “It is also not the result that I want too. To think that we are mortal enemies.”

Fan Yuqing smiled weakly, “That is your business with my parents, not mine. To me, you are always the good-for-nothing cultivator that I’ve known.”

Dongfang Jun smiled, “In the past, I’ve always lived under your shadows. Even your two seniors despise me for being good-for-nothing.”

Fan Yuqing said, “But you are not. You are actually the Great God Xuan Yuan.”

Dongfang Jun smiled, “Indeed. You have said all that is on my mind.”

Fan Yuqing said tearfully and her voice was suddenly hoarse, “Even if you are the Great God Xuan Yuan now, you are still the good-for-nothing Dongfang Jun that I’ve known and loved.”

Dongfang Jun smiled, “Thank you…”

All of a sudden he had suddenly leapt backward and into the sea of lava, shocking Fan Yuqing and Ye Jing…

“Yuqin, I know better than anyone else. You want to atone for your parents for me…but I don’t want you to perish…I will perish alone…so be strong and live well…for my sake…one day we will meet again and I will be your good-for-nothing Dongfang Jun…good bye Maiden Shen Zhen and thank you for protecting the Willows Wind Manor…Yuqin I love you…”

Fan Yuqing and Ye Jing had both leapt to the column that Dongfang Jun was and they were weeping out loud…

“Dongfang Jun…” They were both weeping his name.

The Dongfang Jun that they had known was a kind hearted cultivator who had fought for his clan and friends. Even though he had regained his past memories, his memories as Dongfang Jun were not wiped out and he had never forgotten about Fan Yuqin and Shen Zhen.

He had chosen to give up his life because this was the only way for him to forget his lofty existence as the Great Rift Lord Xuan Yuan for he only wanted to remember the memories of Dongfang Jun.
