The Secrets of the Stellar Sanctuary
There was a glaring light and Yi Ping found himself in a dim white chamber with two passages.
His first thoughts were, “Where am I?”
At the same time there were four other beams of brilliant light and Yi Ping could see that it was the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa, Lingfeng, Lie Qing and Xingyue!
When the glaring lights had dissipated, they were all staring blankly at each other…
Xingyue was the first to regain her composure as she looked around their surroundings, “Where are we?”
Lingfeng suddenly pointed at the ground, “Look!”
They could see several golden skeletons that lay scattering around…
Yi Ping was startled, “These are the remains of the other celestials?”
Lingfeng nodded, “It seems to be so.”
Lie Qing was laughing softly, “Good! I am with you, Ping’Er. I dread to think that I am with the Universal Old Man or that boring Skylord Jun!”
Yi Ping had turned extremely solemn and it was noticed by Lingfeng who asked, “What is wrong?”
He said nervously, “Now that we are separated, I am worried for the others.”
Immediately all the others fell into deathly silence!
All of a sudden the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa hummed coldly, “Don’t worry about them and worry about ourselves first. Most likely, we are all going to die here!”
Yi Ping asked, “What do you mean? We are all going to die here?”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa nodded as she continued to examine the chamber with her eyes, “That is right. If I am right then we are teleported to six different locations of this Ten Thousands Celestial Formation and in order to break this formation, we have to neutralize the formation core at our location. Or else…”
Yi Ping noticed her silence and asked, “Or else?”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa sighed softly, “Or else we are all going to die here.”
Yi Ping asked, “Even for you, you will die?”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa looked at Yi Ping for a moment as she trembled lightly. It was obvious that she was hesitated to say it loud to everyone!
Lingfeng, Shen Xingyue and Lie Qing were three of the super smart exponents of the martial fraternity. Immediately they could guess the very reason why the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa was hesitating. It was because no one was willing to share their own weakness!
So the first thought that they had in mind was, “The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa has a weakness? She can be killed here?”
Yi Ping was not dense and he was aware of the reason too. So he said quietly to the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa, “We have already entered into a temporary alliance. I won’t hurt you even at your current state. I know that I can’t ask you to trust me but all of us here have no intention to become a dark practitioner and none of us will seek such a despicable mean to advance our own cultivation attainment…”
