The Goddess Celestial Alice was staring blankly at Lele, “…the Universal Harmonic Chain has…actually picked her…as its mistress?”
Lele was startled that everyone was suddenly looking at her as she protested weakly, “I…I didn’t do anything…”
All of a sudden Lele could feel that her awareness seemed to have expanded considerably; she had attained the ninth staging of the Holy Pureness, the Unchained Melody!
Yunzi said coolly, “Well, this settles the ownership of this immortal artefact.”
The Goddess Aiel was not slowed to react; she had quickly moved to assist the Goddess of Mercy and the Goddess Isa as she popped a pill into their mouths!
But when she had moved to the Goddess Celestial Alice to assist her, the Goddess Celestial Alice said weakly to her. “I don’t need your help…I don’t deserve it…”
The Goddess Aiel forced the pill into her mouth as she said quietly, “This is not the time for arguments. I am not pitying you. I am also not belittling you. If you want to settle any score with me, at the very least you must recover your strength first.”
The Goddess Celestial Alice fell into silence. It was because the Goddess Aiel had once been punished by her and was stripped of her immortal divinity. She knew very well that the Goddess Aiel was actually one of kindest immortal practitioner in the Immortal Realm. Therefore for her own good she had decided find an excuse to banish her to the Celestial Realm so that she could stay clear of the immortal conflicts that were plaguing the Immortal Realm.
She muttered, “You don’t hate me…for banishing…you?”
The Goddess Aiel moaned softly, “Why should I? I quite like being your Celestial Priestess. You really think that I do not know that you have banished me for my own good? My dear Eternal Goddess, I think I am really in trouble this time round and have broken one of the most sacred rules of the Goddess Theocracy. Do you think you can really make an exception for me this time?”
The Goddess Celestial Alice muttered weakly, “You should have kept it hidden from me. You know that with my sacred oaths, I cannot make an exception for anyone, including for you…”
She paused briefly before continuing, “….but what it is? Maybe…I can make light punishments for you…”
At this moment Yi Ping had stumbled next to them as he kneeled besides her, “Maiden Ziyan… are you alright? I…have…finally found you…”
At this moment she had also noticed that the Goddess Aiel was flushing shyly when Yi Ping had suddenly shown up. She muttered, “Don’t tell me…”
