Secrets of the Feather Sword Shards
Yixian helped Yi Ping to one side while the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa watched quietly.
They were now alone in a dimly lit passage hall. While they were not far from the others, they were far enough so that they could not be overheard.
Yi Ping appeared to be feverish as he stumbled weakly to the side of the wall.
At the same time the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa looked at Yixian with a soft hum, “So what do you want? What do you want to say?”
Yixian reluctantly let go of Yi Ping as she whispered gently, “Ping’Er, take a rest first. You have done really well so far and you should take a rest.”
She tapped him gently on his shoulder and Yi Ping began to doze off before she looked at the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa, “Now we can finally talk.”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa did not seem to be surprised as she worded coldly, “Indeed! So what does the mighty Great Goddess Fantian wants with me? So you want to end me or to seal me? This is your best time to do so or else when the Mystique Core Divine Pill has taken its effect, you will surely regret your act of mercy.”
Yixian looked at her gently, “Are you still upset with me?”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa raised her eyebrows, “So you have finally remembered?”
Yixian nodded as she stole a glance at Yi Ping, “Yes, I have remembered.”
She took a glance at Yi Ping with a bashful look. She knew her destiny now. She was the Great Goddess Fantian and she was a companion to the Great God Pangu. They were the High Gods, the first of the immortal race and they were also called the Desolate Powers, rightly so because they were gifted with the Chaotic Desolate Force, an innate might that automatically started the weakest Desolate Powers at the Seventh Immortal Positioning!
While Immortals of the Sixth Immortal Positioning possessed a golden body that rendered them immune to the passage of time, from the elements and they need not sustain their rare hunger through divine fruits any longer, Immortals of the Seventh Immortal Positioning were the true immortals and they were no longer affected by the Divine Calamities.
The Immortals of the Eighth Immortal Positioning possessed a divine body that would not decay even if they would be killed. However, killing an Immortal of the Eighth Immortal Positioning would prove to be extremely difficult since they were all highly resilient to damage and possessed rapid healing. And less than a hundred of the Desolate Powers were of the Eighth Immortal Positioning; the Great Goddess Fantian and the Great Goddess Nuwa were among them.
Only the Great God Pangu was of the Ninth Immortal Positioning because he was the first among the Desolate Powers.
Yi Ping was now of the Seventh Immortal Positioning and while he had not truly been though the entire immortal stages, that was no longer important. That was because any practitioners that could reach the Seventh Immortal Positioning were already a True Immortal!
Because very few practitioners, even for the immortal practitioners could actually reach the Seventh Immortal Positioning, none of them was actually aware that Yi Ping was already a True Immortal.
The Goddess Celestial Alice and the Goddess Asura were the only one in their group to have reached the Seventh Immortal Positioning and it was only a recent event. As for the Goddess Isa and the Sacred Embodied Heavenly Goddess, they had just taken the Mystique Core Divine Pill and they would attain the Seventh Immortal Positioning very soon.
As Yi Ping dozed off, a faint golden animus that only practitioners of the Seventh Immortal Positioning and above could see was enveloping him and rapidly healing him. This healing effect was more obvious in the Stellar Sanctuary than elsewhere because the rate of recovery here was ten times much faster!
Yixian beamed as she said, “He has now gained control of his Heaven Eyes and is now in full mastery of the Seventh Cosmos Positioning. From now on, he is an immortal…”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa muttered, “I really got a big fright when that Guardian Divine Naga crushed on top on him just like that.”
Yixian nodded as her eyes beamed with tears, “I have the same feeling as well. I have thought that is really the end of him.”
The Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa nodded lightly, “If it isn’t for the timely intervention of Maiden Lie Qing, the Great God Pangu will surely meet his end by a lowly divine beast. That will be the most hilarious legend ever!”
All of a sudden Yixian broke into a soft smile as she giggled softly, “Oh really? That is funny.”
