The Second Feather Sword Shard
The archway of this passage was even grander than the earlier levels and instead of gold and white, was cobalt blue and white.
Yi Ping muttered, “It is beautiful…”
The Goddess Celestial Alice smiled, “But it is also dangerous. I have never been past the 80th level.”
Skylord Jun agreed, “I am sure of it too.”
Everyone was slightly surprised that the Skylord Jun was actually the first to agree with Alice. It seemed that after they were grouped together for a while, their animosities were no more!
The Goddess Isa and the Goddess Asura were with them and they knew the reason; in the trials of the Stellar Sanctuary they had all learnt new respect for each other!
Their group was lively and despite their weariness, they were all energized by the presence of each other, especially by Yi Ping and Yixian!
Everyone was interested to know what had happened to Yixian and what exactly had happened during their separations!
Yi Ping and Yixian hastily spent some time doing quick explanations even though they were on the brink of exhaustion but the joyous sight of everyone had kept them going!
Ye Yin stared at Yi Ping in disbelief, “So in the end, it is Sister Lie Qing that end up saving your group? And not you?”
Yi Ping protested weakly with a weak sigh, “Just one little bit more, I can bring that Guardian Divine Naga down but at the last moment, I have completely lost all my strength…”
At this Lingfeng became upset as she knocked Yi Ping’s head, “You thick head! You are already so exhausted and yet you have to display your Ten Thousands Memories Sword. Of course your strength will be snapped! You have almost lost your life because of that!”
Yi Ping smiled weakly, “I wasn’t thinking…”
That was the truth.
As he engaged the Guardian Divine Naga, he was totally immersed in it as he instinctively gave himself to defeat it. In that instant he was acting upon his pure intuitional reflexes.
He muttered weakly when he had thought of that instant, “If I can still persist a little longer, I would have defeat that monster…”
Lingfeng knocked his head again angrily, “Right!”
Yu’Er, Mei’Er, Xingyue, the Goddess Asura, the Goddess Isa and all the other maidens were gasping out for Yi Ping, “Lingfeng, that is enough…”
Yi Ping said weakly to everyone, “No matter.”
Lingfeng immediately softened as she turned her head around, “Go and take a rest first…”
Yi Ping could see and feel her silent tears as he tapped her gently on her shoulder, “Lingfeng…”
But she shrugged her shoulder as she turned aside, “Just leave me alone, you heartless man…”
Yi Ping could see her silent tears that were dripping on the ground even though he could not see her face. He was heartbroken and was at a loss to comfort her. It was because he knew that Lingfeng was worried for him and he knew that this time, he had come really close to hovering on death’s door.
