The Ten Thousands Celestial Formation
Yixian smiled gently to Yi Ping, “Ping’Er, I have thought that I would never see you again. After we have passed through that shimmering golden portal, I have found myself lying in a beautiful scented coffin in different attire. There was a Divine White Tiger Beast that was next to me. It was the same divine beast that we have encountered in the earlier levels. At first I was startled by its presence but it meant me no harm but followed me everywhere. After exploring where I was, I was even more startled to find myself in a floating citadel and when I have looked down, there were oceans of swords everywhere.”
Yi Ping was nodding, “Xian’Er, I know that it is you…”
Yixian lowered her glances as she stroked her blue hair, “In that surreal place, I dreamed that I am the Great Goddess Fantian. I dream of dreams that are distant and fantastic. I soon realize that it is really not a dream but I am truly Fantian herself. I don’t know how to explain this.”
She began to tremble as she whispered melancholy, “The Great Goddess Fantian ended her life to follow the Great God Pangu…”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa was stunned, “The Great Goddess Fantian that I have known is gone…but your body is immortal…”
Yixian nodded, “The Great Goddess Fantian may have ended her life but she has preserved her body in a coffin. Somehow I have merged one with her.”
Yi Ping muttered, “So the Great Goddess Fantian and Xian’Er are actually splitting images of each other…”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa sighed softly before she said, “Anyway, we have to get out of here first.”
Yi Ping asked the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa, “Do you have a way to get out of this celestial formation?”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa replied coldly, “Hmph. This Ten Thousands Celestial Formation may be able to trap lesser mortals but it is not enough to trap me.”
Lie Qing was amused as she thought, “Then why are you trapped here.”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa continued, “This Ten Thousands Celestial Formation is able to trap ten thousands immortals hence its name. It is also because it is impossible to overcome all six celestial positions at the same time. Moreover while we are still in this formation, we will only get weaker and will be unable to recover our martial strength.”
Yi Ping nodded as he sighed softly…
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa added, “The fact that there is an exit means that all six celestial positions are filled and opened. Because we are in with a large group therefore we are fortunately enough. Or else if we have to wait for the others to enter this formation, it may take a long time and by then, we may be disintegrated along with this formation when the Stellar Sanctuary returned to the Heavens.”
She paused briefly before saying, “Even then the strength of the six groups varies and there is no telling that we can all overcome the six positions at the same time. In the end we will all be returned to the start of this formation until we have new groups joining us. But for the original groups, we would have already exhausted our strength and further expeditions into the Ten Thousands Celestial Formation will only spell our doom!”
Yi Ping cursed softly, “This Ten Thousands Celestial Formation is a cunning trap by itself. I wonder who the inventor of this cursed formation…”
Yixian and Nuwa immediately giggled softly as they said at the same time, “It is you!”
They paused to look at each other and suddenly shrugged their shoulders solemnly.
Yi Ping grinned, “It seems that the Lady Fantian and the Lady Nuwa have something in common now.”
Lie Qing, Xingyue and Lingfeng were secretly looking at each other; it was because they had noticed that there seemed to be a subtle change in Yi Ping’s personality.
The Yi Ping that they had known was more caution and he would never joke in a tense situation like this. But now Yi Ping despite his loss of martial strength was relax and had a confident look.
Shen Xingyue sensed a familiar sense of tranquility that was always around the White Sage…
Yi Ping grinned, “Well that is the Great God Pangu and not me. So is there a way to break this celestial formation?”
