The Sanctorum Relic
All the maidens were all looking shyly at Yi Ping, their eyes were full of affections and tenderness for him. At this moment all their hearts were fluttering as they appraised him.
Yi Ping was stoned as he stared at them dreamily. He had never have imagined that one day, he would have standing in front of so many heavenly maidens, beautiful in their own ways and actually would be reciprocating his heartfelt sentiments for them.
As he gazed at them, his memory began to recollect his exploits with all of them; their escapades together, their battles, their close shaves and many other things. It seemed like a long time had passed…
The Universal Old Man was still looking a little shaky as he murmured, “I can’t believe it, really. Ping’Er, the Celestial Fairy, the Heavenly Temptress and the Joyful Goddess had attacked so swiftly that this Bestial Emperor Satyr could hardly even react after the initial charge. And the entire fight only lasts a minute. Moreover this is the death gate boss monster of the thirty-eight floor! What says you, my Heaveness?”
Lingfeng sighed softly as the Universal Old Man interrupted their quiet moments. This was followed immediately by the soft sighs of the others…
She took a shy look at the valiant Yi Ping and her heart was secret fluttering, “This is already the limit for our past attempts in the Stellar Sanctuary. Even the Immortal Saint of Swords won’t be able to get past the fortieth floor…”
She smiled when she saw Yi Ping’s curved lips because she knew that he was going to ask her for the reason so she replied him, “It is because past the thirtieth floor, the passages can get increasing complex and there are more trials at every intervening turns. Therefore the progression is really slow. We are simply lucky that we have found the exit so quickly.”
Youxue smiled weakly, “Not that lucky it seems. It is the death gate that we have found.”
Youxue, the Universal Old Man and the Goddess Aiel were the only ones that did not have any divine artefacts and they would have required an additional week of rest to recover from their internal injuries. This was considered to be quite rapid especially since they could recover ten times much faster in the Stellar Sanctuary than elsewhere.”
The Goddess of Mercy Gusu Xiang may not have a divine sword but she had miraculously recovered from her internal injuries. It was because her Heavens Sunder Mirror was a potent divine weapon in its own and could be affected by the Ancient Swords Pool.
Yi Ping continued to inhale deeply, “This Bestial Emperor Satyr is really strong. It is able to take in so many hits of my techniques without faltering.”
Lele smiled, “But we have won!”
Alice sighed softly as she lifted her eyes to look regally at Yi Ping, “Yi Ping, from now on you mustn’t fight solo anymore.” She proceeded to look at Lele, Yixian and Lie Qing, “Or display the Celestial Star Formation anymore.”
Lele asked curiously, “Why so?”
Alice replied eloquently, “This is for your safety. Future fights may not be as easy and you should exercise caution. As for the Celestial Star Formation, it may be a formidable formation but your opponent is a brainless monster that can be defeated by sheer martial strength. But against the intricacy moves of the Immortals and the more powerful Guardians of the Stellar Sanctuary, it is completely useless.”
Yi Ping nodded as he said warmly, “Maiden Ziyan, you are right. I will listen to you.”
Alice gave him a quick smile before looking at Lele again, “Though the Celestial Star Formation is formidable but it is also extremely physical taxing. What if you can’t defeat the opponent in time then won’t all of you be defenseless?”
The Celestial Fairy Yixian nodded with an appreciative smile, “The Great Goddess is right. That is what I have feared too.”
She turned to say gently to Lele, “Lele, I am sure that we have finally fulfilled your wish to execute the Celestial Star Formation with you as the lead this time. Next time, wait for my lead alright?”
Lele replied weakly, “Oh well, we still got a long way to go before we can perfect the Celestial Star Formation. Alright then.”
But from her determined eyes, Yi Ping knew that Lele was not going to give it up so soon.
This prompted him to think, “Is something going to happen soon? Why is Lele so insistent on perfecting the Celestial Star Formation?”
But his thoughts were quickly interrupted by the sudden manifestation of a brilliant light that was near the shimmering blue portal that was in front of them!
