The Collapse of the Stellar Sanctuary
An overwhelming darkness seemed to envelop Yi Ping as he willed himself back to his real physical body.
He was dazzled by a sudden bright light and soon after, he was immediately greeted by several familiar joyous cries!
A stunning light greeted him when he opened his eyes, he saw many familiar faces and saw that he was now back at the Stellar Sanctuary!
Xian’Er, Lingfeng, Yu’Er, Mei’Er, Alice, Isa, Aiel, Youxue, Lie Qing, Nuwa, the Goddess of Mercy Xiang, Han Lin, Yunzi, the Universal Old Man and many others were all standing around Yi Ping excitingly!
Next there was a terrifying hearty roar by the White Divine Tiger, followed by the Xiao Ping the Golden Kirin as they stomped their paws to welcome Yi Ping!
Lingfeng the Heaveness laughed jovially as she gave him a soft kick, “What happens to you? We are so worried for you. You are finally back!”
Xian’Er gripped his hand and said, “Ping’Er, you are finally back!…”
Mei’Er laughed jovially, “Do you know that our Mistress and the Great Desolate Goddess Nuwa are about to make another attempt to cross the boundaries of space to the Desolate Realm to look for you!”
But she immediately softened to say, “Because of you, they have suffered grave internal injuries.”
Yu’Er sighed softly, “If you have not returned then they would have risked a fourth time…”
Xian’Er replied gently, “Ping’Er, I am alright. Please do not worry.”
Nuwa coughed softly, “I am not alright. If we fail another time then we may very well lost our lives.”
Yi Ping was burning with hot tears inside as he looked at them, “Xian’Er, Nuwa…alas! I wish I know how to say words of comfort. It is not worth to lose your lives because of me…”
Xian’Er smiled gently as she held his hand even tighter, “No my dear. For you, everything for you is worth it!”
Lele smiled, “You know, they are not the only ones that are anxious for you!”
She pointed to the smiling Youxue, Yunzi, Lie Qing, the Ascension Goddess Ye Yin and Shen Xingyue and Yunzi, “Are you forgetting about us?”
Yi Si was also smiling as she said, “Father! Glad to have you back!”
The Universal Old Man was patting his belly as he laughed heartily, “I know that he will surely be able to overcome the Stellar Sanctuary!”
Yunzi and Lie Qing were looking at him with affectionate eyes as they said at the same time, “Ping’Er!”
Yi Ping was also smiling as he exclaimed aloud, “Qing’Er, Yunzi, Xue’Er, Xing’Er, Ye Yin…how is everyone?”
The Goddess Celestial Alice smiled, “What a great reunion!”
Yi Ping nodded and smiled back, “Ziyan, Alice…”
Behind her, were the Goddess Isa, the Goddess of Mercy Xiang’Er, Aiel, Han Lin and the Goddess Asura and they were all smiling shyly at him. While they were equally excited at seeing Yi Ping again, they were too shy and mindful to express their heartfelt sentiments unlike Yi Ping’s original group.
