A Martial Odyssey Book 3: The Stellar Sanctuary Chapter 51


14 min read


Yi Ping and his group had walked into a chilly passage with tall imposing pillars at each side. 

Even for their martial cultivation, they could still feel the supernatural cold of this place!

Yi Ping huffed out a cold breath as he said, “It is cold here…”

Lingfeng nodded as she shivered, “Yes, it is cold. Even with my Divine Invigorate Force and my Celestium Silk, I can still feel the cold…”

All of a sudden Yi Ping took off his outer garment and wrapped it around the Great Goddess Desolate Nuwa when he noticed that she was shivering lightly as he thought, “I am so insensitive. She has expended much of her internal strength and must be cold…”

The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa was startled by Yi Ping’s sudden gesture as she looked at him intently…

Yi Ping nodded gently at her before he marched off to the front of the group as he said, “We need to be extra vigilant. If there is any combat trial, let me test out the strength first or we will only be needlessly wasting our martial strength…”

Lingfeng smiled alluringly to him, “What a surprise. You are actually giving orders to us, hmph!”

Yi Ping smiled weakly, “Lingfeng, don’t keep talking and fall afoul of the traps here…”

Lingfeng threw a needle at him that struck his back hard with a zapping force before it fell to the ground!

Yi Ping protested, “You are for real? Why did you shoot your secret projectile at me…”

Lingfeng laughed softly, “Weird. Why didn’t you dodge it? Just because you are protected by your martial strength, you really think that my needle can’t pierce through to you? I am telling you, I just didn’t want to waste my martial strength on you!”

Lie Qing smiled shyly, “Obviously he is trying to show off in front of you to get your attention, Lingfeng!”

Yi Ping was startled as he asked, “Qing’Er, even you are ganging up against me?”

Lie Qing laughed softly, “You mean I can’t help my Sister Lingfeng?”

Lingfeng lifted her right fingers, “Yes, why can’t she stand on my side?”

Yi Ping smiled weakly, “True…”

But even though he was agreeing but he could not help feeling a little sore in his heart. It was because Lie Qing was endeavoring to him and had been giving him her undying love!

Lingfeng stole a glance at Yi Ping as she thought, “If you can escape Lie Qing’s charms then she won’t be called the Heavenly Temptress. She is someone that you can be glad to have on your side than the opposing side.”

Lie Qing laughed softly as she cuddled next to Yi Ping as she whispered, “Ping’Er, finally I can hug you. It’s really hard to do so when Yu’Er, Mei’Er, Aiel and all the others around!”

She winked at Lingfeng, “Why, you want to cuddle to him too?”

Lingfeng flushed lightly as she protested, “Why want to get close to him, humph!” 

Yi Ping was smiling as he rubbed his nose, “Yep right!” 

But in his heart, he really wanted to hug Lingfeng but he decided to do it some other day. It was because he knew that Lingfeng was shy and they had secretly hinted with their eyes to wait when they were alone!

All of a sudden Xingyue walked past them; Yi Ping could sniff her fragrance scent and silken thread of flurrying hair as she said quietly, “I will scout ahead.”

Yi Ping nodded as he sighed softly in his heart, “Xingyue…”

Such a beautiful and angelic maiden that had been faithfully waiting for him all these years and yet he could not give her his devoted love…

All of a sudden Xingyue turned her head around as she lowered her head with a wryly smile as she stamped the ground, “What are you waiting for? Aren’t you coming too?”

Yi Ping was startled and he stammered as he looked at her thoroughly enticing look, “Yes, yes…”

Lie Qing whispered shyly as she saw Yi Ping’s expressions, “So the Lady Xingyue can be so charming if she wants to. I suppose that I have to surrender my title as the Heavenly Temptress to her!”

Lingfeng was still flushing lightly, “Are you guys flirting? Don’t forget we are in a precaution position…”

Xingyue protested shyly, “We are not…” as she pointed at the two passages in front of them. “Ping’Er, so which way do you think we should go?”

It was because there was another splitting passage in front of them, one left and one right! 

Yi Ping hesitated for a while and was about to move to the right passage when the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa smiled gently to him, “Why don’t we take the passage to the left side?”

Lie Qing lifted her head to look at the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa warily…

Yi Ping laughed as he said, “Then let’s take the left side. I can’t really decide so let us do as the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa has suggested.”

Lie Qing quickly smiled as she took a glance at the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa, “I agree so let us be on our way.”

Xingyue nodded as she turned around to enter the passage to the far left.

As they all entered the left passage, they entered another winding passage. This passage was equally as imposing as the other passages!

They had come to a wide stone hall with dripping water and fountains. It looked more like a recreational garden except that there were no plants! 

It was an extremely tranquil place but Yi Ping, Lie Qing, Lingfeng, Xingyue and the Great Goddess Desolate Nuwa could sense the hidden dangers that were all around them!

Yi Ping shouted to everyone, “Be careful!”

He had immediately unsheathed his swords as he leapt forward. Immediately dozens of beaming arrows flew from all directions toward him!

Yi Ping swirled his two divine swords all around him as he deflected all the arrows onto the ground as he puffed a soft breath, “It is safe now!”

Lingfeng gasped, “Not yet!”

It was because there were beams of golden lights that were zapping all around them and from these golden beams of zapping light, fifteen golden golems with gigantic shields and swords flashed all around them!

Yi Ping was startled and saw that these golden golems were at least a head taller than the Iron Golems that he had previously fought. Because he was nearest to them, he immediately swung his twin swords at the nearest golden golem but barely had he struck one, he was repelled by an invisible guarding force!

He gasped, “These golden golems are much stronger than the Iron Golems that we have fought previously…”

As Yi Ping was repelled, the other Golden Golems had quickly descended upon him!

Xingyue, Lie Qing and Lingfeng had quickly flashed next to them as they clashed with the fifteen Golden Golems immediately while the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa was forced to watch!

Xingyue flashed her Blue Heavens Divine Sword across three Golden Golems but she too, was repelled by a strange inertial force!

Lie Qing had surrounded herself with ten golden inertia golden discs as she ran through one of the Golden Golems and exploding it!

Yi Ping executed dozens of
