The Great Ascetic Heavenly King
They were now facing a tall imposing steep cliff.
Yi Ping sighed softly, “It seems that we have taken a wrong turn.”
The golden Kirin cub bellowed aloud as though it was agreeing with him.
Yi Ping looked quietly at the group of heavenly maidens, the Universal Old Man and Old Venerable Vanquishing Sage who were all nodding in agreement.
Han Lin said, “If that old man did not keep pestering me and making such a big din, we would not have taken the wrong turn!”
Old Venerable Vanquishing Sage said angrily, “You still haven’t returned the Green Dragon Sacred Sword to me!”
Han Lin protested weakly, “It is not that I did not try to return it to you…”
She had thrown the Green Dragon Sacred Sword on the ground when Old Venerable Vanquishing Sage had asked for it but he had failed to pull it; it seemed that the Green Dragon Sacred Sword refused to acknowledge him as its master anymore!
The Goddess Aiel heaved a soft sigh, “Since the divine sword has picked Han Lin as its mistress then we can only respect its choice. There is really nothing left for us to do.”
Old Venerable Vanquishing Sage muttered, “Xiaoci, you are on her side?”
The Goddess Aiel flashed him an annoyance look before saying exasperatingly, “Yes I am on her side. It is not because I am her protégé mistress. It is not because I am siding with her. Look at you, you are an eminent celestial practitioner yet you can’t handle a little loss?”
Old Venerable Vanquishing Sage protested weakly, “But Xiaoci…”
The Goddess Aiel said sternly, “No but. As Ascendant Custodian of the Holy Ascension Sect, I command you to keep quiet.”
The Universal Old Man began to laugh jovially, “You seem to have made Ai upset.”
Lady Winter Plum was looking at the Universal Old Man quietly. She was the protégé mistress of the Three Plum Sect and had traveled together with the celestial practitioners of the Holy Ascension Sect as they made their way through the Stellar Sanctuary.
She had traveled with four of her most beloved and cherished protégés. All of them were intelligent and kind hearted maidens that had followed her for centuries.
Their sudden deaths had saddened her greatly and until now she had not come to terms with their demises yet. She really did not expect that Chu Mingfan who styled himself as the Reverend Sacred Sage would be so despicable!
She had actually taken a liking to him!
He was a dashing scholarly celestial practitioner and had a reputation as one of the eight original founders of the Holy Ascension Sect. Not only that, his martial strength was said to be on par with the Lord Supreme and he was the second highest ranking Ascendant of the Holy Ascension Sect.
In his company were Old Reverend Vanquishing Sage, the Ascension Goddess, the Eclipse Heaven Goddess, the Axis Heaven Goddess and the Fiery Phoenix. All of them were highly attained celestial practitioners from the Holy Ascension Sect and he was their leader!
Therefore it was not surprising that she had been impressed by him!
Because she was with these highly attained celestials, their venture into the Stellar Sanctuary proved to be quick and the trials were overcome quickly.
When they had reached the vast plains of the Stellar Sanctuary, Chu Mingfan had suggested that she followed him to recon the woods ahead.
