The Inverting Eternal Occurrence

Yixian gasped weakly as she regained her conscious after Lingfeng had used her Divine Invigorate Force to resuscitate her.

Shen Xingyue was thinking as she looked at her, “Even though Yixian has not cultivated as a Golden Celestial yet but her martial attainment is already so high. She is really a martial prodigy. There are different tiers even for Golden Celestials and she is on par with the Ascension Goddess and I…”

Her thoughts were quickly interrupted by the Ascension Goddess who had suddenly attacked the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage!

Shen Xingyue gasped softly, “You…wait!”

The Ascension Goddess had barely attacked the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage when she was forcibly swept aside by her opponent’s sword fingers attacks. As she stumbled several steps backward, the ground beneath her cracked and sunk into splitting fragments!

Everyone was gasping and was holding their breath!

When they saw the solid white celestium stone slabs giving way at her mere steps, everyone was secretly startled at her martial power display!

It suddenly dawned to many of the celestials that the Ascension Goddess was after all one of the new seven most powerful celestials!

And they were now witnessing a duel between one of the most powerful elder secular celestials and one of the most powerful new generation celestials. It was a duel that no one wanted to miss now, even at the risk of their life!

How powerful were they? Their martial strengths, their secret strokes, their weaknesses and how far were they from these two top celestial exponents?

Of course, part of the reasons was that the Holy Ascension Sect and the Ascension Goddess had become a common enemy to many. The more they could know about the martial origins of the Ascension Goddess, they could eventually find a way to defeat or counter her in the future!

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage was a little startled with the martial strength of the Ascension Goddess even though he was unconcerned with her as a threat. There were many powerful challengers in the past. They had even more powerful dominating aura than her and he had defeated them all.

He thought, “That is the strength of her divine sword? Or that is the strength of the Supreme Celestial of the Holy Ascension Sect?”

The Ascension Goddess was secretly alarmed of the martial strength of the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage as well. But when she secretly saw the anxiety on Yi Ping as she battled the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage, she was secretly pleased.

She forced a smile as she said coldly to the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage, “Is that what you got? Can you get much better than that?”

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage hummed coldly, “You call yourself an elder of the Holy Ascension Sect and yet you have attacked without giving any warning. What an uncultivated celestial practitioner!”

The Ascension Goddess swung her divine sword backward as she stood casually, “I didn’t give you a warning? I just issue you a formal challenge. Or are you deaf?”

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage said coldly, “A formal challenge requires both sides to give a formal introduction…”

The Ascension Goddess laughed softly, “Formal Introduction? Everyone knows you are the most eminent celestial in the entire celestial realm and everyone knows who I am. As an eminent celestial, you will surely want to give me the benefit of a first strike. Moreover, I am an uncultivated celestial.”

She had admitted that she was an uncultivated celestial and that immediately invited several amusements from the visiting celestials.

Far from being an unsophisticated celestial, the Ascension Goddess in her white gold celestial long dress outfit was the most refined and sophisticated celestial maiden that most of the celestials had ever seen. Her spectacular beauty, beautiful igniting golden eyes and long braided flowing hair was so stunning that she was simply a delight to watch.

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage said coldly, “I have three martial principles. One, I won’t duel with the opposite gender. Two, I won’t duel with someone beneath me. Three, I won’t duel with an uncultivated person.”

The Ascension Goddess laughed softly, “I see. That’s interesting.”

Yi Ping was smiling unwittingly. It was because she had suddenly made light of an otherwise solemn atmosphere. He began to see a side of her that he had never noticed before.

Yu’Er, Mei’Er, Lele, Lie Qing and Lingfeng were giggling!

That was because the Ascension Goddess had just broken all three of the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage’s martial code and her only remark was that it was interesting!

It was obviously she was mocking the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage!

Even though all the other maidens were all smiling but they were also consciously wary of the intentions of the Ascension Goddess who was a complete enigma to them. Would she lose intentionally or she had another intention in mind by challenging the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage? But then, none of them had any confident against him and even the Heaveness had not recovered her true martial strength yet and was using an empty scheme known as the ‘Vacant City Strategy’ to disguise her martial weakness by feigning an essential loftiness.

Lingfeng was secretly afraid that the Ascension Goddess and Shen Xingyue would see through her feint given their state of divinity…

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage continued coldly, “But today, I am going to make an exception of my martial code to duel with you.”

The Ascension Goddess smiled, “You are welcome!”

There were many visiting celestials that wished for the death of the Ascension Goddess for various reasons. But today after witnessing so many of their compatriots that were killed, their alignments began to shift towards Yi Ping’s faction instead. It was because the Three Immortal Sword Sages were simply too insolent!

Another reason was that the Ascension Goddess looked so affable in real life and not the demoness that they had imagined. But of course the main reason was that no one was expecting that the Ascension Goddess was able to defeat the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage!

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage hummed coldly, “I see how you are going to laugh when I have stripped you naked and parade you in the streets.”

The Ascension Goddess causally laughed softly, “I see how you are going to react when I do the same to you too but then, it won’t be a slightly.”

Yi Ping was afraid that the Ascension Goddess might provoke the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage too much and that would result in a ruthless retaliation so he called out panicky to her, “Be careful!”

The Ascension Goddess beamed back with a smile, gesturing empathically. “I…I will! Ping’Er, you haven’t asked me for my name yet!”

Yi Ping was flustering awkwardly all of a sudden at her sudden flirt as everyone was looking at him in envy!

The Ascension Goddess was secretly flushing too as she recalled the night with Yi Ping. She distracted herself by calling aloud to the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage, “What are we waiting for?”

She had lurched herself at the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage, almost giving Yi Ping a heart attack!

Almost immediately, the sword energies aura of the Immortal Sword Aegis Sage and the despairing aura of the Ascension Goddess could be felt in all corners of the grand hall!

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage had raised his sword fingers against the divine sword of the Ascension Goddess as they began to exchange hundreds of furious shadowy flurry strokes!

The Immortal Sword Aegis Sage was striking with dozens of sword energies bursts against the Ascension Goddess, mixing his attacks with tens of intricate
