AGM 527 - Scheme
The two of them tightly embraced each other in the midst of a deafening silence. Gradually the others understood that there was a deep love between Qin Wentian and the Holy Maiden.
Rumor has it that the Holy Maiden was sent to the Medicine Sovereign Valley when she was at the brink of death. As to the specific circumstances that had led to this, only this young man from the Battle Sword Sect knew.
"So the Holy Maiden's name is Qingcheng. What an apt name for this woman of such great beauty. Such a pity, how lamentable..." Liu Yun was sighing in utter dejection.
"I'm sighing because she didn't have the fate to meet this young master first." Liu Yun's fantasies got wilder and wilder while his sect members by the side all rolled their eyes. This bastard was truly one of a kind.
A different kind of thought flashed through Ye Lingshuang's mind, the Holy Maiden was actually Qin Wentian's companion. In that case, if Qin Wentian was willing to help her, doesn't that mean the Holy Maiden would surely try her best to cure her father? It might even be possible for the Holy Maiden to request aid from the more powerful healers in the Medicine Sovereign Valley. If that was really the case, her father would truly have hope.
The Medicine Sovereign Valley had some reclusive characters that were so powerful that even the ancient Ye Country had no way to invite. They couldn't even find these characters but that shouldn't be a problem for the Holy Maiden of the Medicine Sovereign Valley.
Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng finally separated. Mo Qingcheng stared at Qin Wentian's face, using her hands to slowly caress it. She was staring at Qin Wentian intently as though she was worried she wouldn't be able to see him again.
When she thought back to everything Qin Wentian had endured in the Pill Emperor Hall, her tears started flowing once more. There were so many things that she wanted to tell him, so many things she wanted to say but she didn't know where should she start. Once again, she fell back into Qin Wentian's embrace.
It was unknown how those members of the Medicine Sovereign Valley were feeling. Their Holy Maiden actually acted in the manner of a young girl, so gentle and full of warmth. Just the look in her eyes was enough to melt the hearts of guys all over the world. They wanted to know how deep exactly was the depth of her feelings, what story did she have with this young man of the Battle Sword Sect.
"I thought we would both die in the Pill Emperor Hall." Mo Qingcheng lightly sobbed. Never in her wildest dreams had she imagined that he would still be alive and they would be reunited today. Mo Qingcheng's face was filled with tear-stains yet she was smiling. She felt happy, really happy. It had been a long time since she had last felt this way. Every breath she took and every ray of sunlight she felt, it all felt so wonderful. Life was beautiful.
"Everything is over. But the things the Pill Emperor Hall had done to you, I will get them to pay back this debt sooner or later." Qin Wentian vowed. The Pill Emperor Hall was like a thorn in his heart, he would definitely remove it, completely wiping the Pill Emperor Hall from the face of this world in the future.
Every time Qin Wentian thought of how Mo Qingcheng had been used as fodder for that disgusting skeleton, he felt a bout of pain and fury so intense that he wanted nothing more than to kill all of them.
Qin Wentian was also staring intently back at Mo Qingcheng, it was as though he wouldn't be able to get enough of her. At the sight of his intense expression, Mo Qingcheng finally laughed. That laughter of hers resonated deeply in his heart, involuntarily causing him to smile as well.
"Holy Maiden." Behind her, the maidens from the Medicine Sovereign Valley called out. When Mo Qingcheng turned and faced them, she had reverted back to her cold temperament which they were all familiar with, causing people to feel a sense of distance with her. How stunning was her beauty, that caused people to feel that she was so high up that they would be unable to reach. However at this moment, her eyes had flickered with faint traces of happiness.
Upon seeing their Holy Maiden in this state, they could only silently sigh in their hearts. It seemed like nobody could impede the love that the Holy Maiden had for this young man. And seeing how much the Medicine Sovereign doted on her, he would definitely not reject.
Yet, the other maidens weren't too happy. Although Qin Wentian was a member of the Battle Sword Sect, he was after all just an ordinary disciple. Also, even if he projected an extraordinary aura, his cultivation base was simply not powerful enough. After all, Mo Qingcheng was the Holy Maiden of their Medicine Sovereign Valley, the most dazzling female in their entire sect!
They had thought that even if the Holy Maiden found the one she loved, her chosen one would definitely be someone capable of shocking the entire world with his name, the hero of his generation. He, should be a supreme genius, surpassing all others but when they looked at Qin Wentian, they couldn't help but feel hints of regret for Mo Qingcheng in their heart. Of course, this was merely what they felt, they naturally wouldn't speak of it out in the public.
Ever since they arrived in Ye, from the attitude Ye Kongfan had shown them, it was evident that he wished to pursue the Holy Maiden.
Ye Kongfan was a chosen with an extraordinary high status in the Violet Thunder Sect. He had the Calamity Lightning Bloodline as well as a Heavenly Lightning Physique. His cultivation was already at the seventh level of Heavenly Dipper despite his young age. However even when he was compared to the Holy Maiden, they too felt that he was insufficient. Only a few people in their estimation were qualified in their eyes.
However, their thoughts were naturally unknown to Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng. Even if they knew, they wouldn't be bothered by itl.
"Junior Brother Qin, I truly admire you." Liu Yun walked up with a wide smile on his face. "Since the Holy Maiden is your girlfriend, how about introducing a few fairies to your Senior Brother?"
"Your skin is really thick." Qiao Yu stated speechlessly. Qin Wentian involuntarily laughed as well, "Isn't Senior Sister Lingshuang beautiful as well? Why look for someone so far away when you already have a beautiful maiden so near to you?"
"But Junior Sister doesn't likes me." Liu Yun made a painful expression as he moaned. His actions caused those from the royal clan to stare at him in dumbfounded amazement, silently thanking the gods that the princess didn't fall in love with this senior of hers.
"Oh ya, since the Holy Maiden is your girl friend, Qing`er shouldn't have any relationship with you right?" Liu Yan finally stated his true purpose, he actually had designs of Qing`er. His thought process currently was: this bastard Qin Wentian already had this empire-toppling beauty as his girlfriend. Would he be selfish to the point where he wanted to eat the snow lotus as well? That would simply be too beastly of him.
"Don't blame me for failing to warn you. Qing`er's cultivation base is at the peak of the sixth level and her Mandate of Space has already reached the Perfection Boundary. If Senior Brother still wishes to try your luck and pursue her, please go ahead." Qin Wentian smiled, he was already thinking of the miserable state Liu Yun would be in if he truly went ahead to bother Qing`er.
"Eh..." Liu Yun involuntarily shuddered. The other members of the Battle Sword Sect exchanged glances as well. That icy maiden who didn't like to talk much was actually so powerful?
"Everyone, the battle arena is still waiting. How about going there together to take a look?" Ye Kongfan's voice rang out. Although he was feeling extremely unhappy in his heart, his face had a smile on it, masking his true intentions.
Mo Qingcheng was still holding the hand of Qin Wentian. She stared at Qin Wentian with a questioning look on her countenance.
"Let's go and take a look then." Qin Wentian smiled. Mo Qingcheng then nodded her head. The whole group of them proceeded towards the Ye Country's battle arena.
The competition between powers in the Royal Sacred Region was simply too intense, this resulted in the vast majority of places placing an extremely high emphasis on the martial path. The Ye Country was the same as well.
The battle arena of the Ye Country was one of the most important places. The vast arena was so large that one couldn't see the end of it with a single glance.
There were twelve combat stages constructed upon the battle arena and the battles on the combat stages had never stopped. There would be countless people fighting each other on a daily basis, pursuing victory. The victors naturally would receive a reward from the Ye Country and the truly strong ones would even be recruited as well.
The Ye Country, in addition to the other smaller kingdoms as well as the major powers would often gather here. They would recruit outstanding victors who had proven themselves. And naturally there would be disputes and conflicts that would be settled using the battle arena as well.
In the center of the vast battle arena, there was a corridor designated for the royal clan's usage. It led to the best spectator stand for the battle arena, there were also armored guards standing at attention, forbidding entry to people who were not from the royal clan.
At this moment, a group of silhouettes appeared in the air space above the royal corridor. Instantly, the gazes of the fighters on the battle arena all stared upwards. Countless number of people also stood up to show their respect while silence suddenly covered the entire space.
They had already heard the news. Today, the son of the King Qi, the chosen of the Violet Thunder Sect, Ye Kongfan had invited the Holy Maiden of the Medicine Sovereign Valley to this place. This group of people in the air all exuded an extraordinary demeanor, especially one woman among the others, her level of beauty could even topple empires. Without a doubt, she must be the Holy Maiden from the Medicine Sovereign Valley. She was exactly like the rumors, a woman possessing an unmatched countenance.
In front of the maidens from the Medicine Sovereign Valley, there was a group of young men leading the way. One of the ones in the center was clad in luxurious golden imperial robes, he should be the son of King Qi, Ye Kongfan.
The armored guards on both sides of the corridor all respectfully half-knelt on the ground as they called out, "We pay our respect to the crown prince as well as the Holy Maiden of the Medicine Sovereign Valley."
Their voices reverberated in the air, rumbling like thunder, causing countless people to focus their attention on Ye Kongfan and the Holy Maiden, already placing them as a couple in their minds. These two could truly be called the chosen of the younger generations, if they could be together, they would surely be a perfect couple.
"Rise. Today, I invited the Holy Maiden over here to spectate. I hope the heroes of my Ye Country will do their best and put up a good show worthy of admiration." Ye Kongfan's voice echoed out loud and permeated the air. His words caused those from the royal clan on the side of Ye Lingshuang to reveal expressions of sharpness. Ye Lingshuang was frowning as well, these guards actually greeted Ye Kongfan as the crown prince but had ignored her, the princess of direct descent?
Qin Wentian stood at the side of Mo Qingcheng. He saw that right up ahead, there were two extremely majestic master seats. Naturally this was something Ye Kongfan had prepared for himself and Mo Qingcheng. This was also why he played his little tricks earlier, causing the crowd to think that he and Mo Qingcheng were a pair, so as to pave the way to his intentions.
Qin Wentian furrowed his brows as a glint of coldness flashed past his eyes. Ye Kongfan was too scheming, not only did he want to mislead the crowd about Mo Qingcheng, he also wanted to overwhelm the true host - Ye Lingshuang, by giving prominence to his status.
The countless crowd evidently had also noticed Qin Wentian who stood beside Mo Qingcheng. Although it was normal for there to be guards around the Holy Maiden for her protection, why would there actually be a young man? How could his presence not cause people to comment? They were all silently speculating about his identity.
Right now, everyone was watching, waiting to see how this would play out. They wanted to see how Ye Kongfan would designate the seating arrangements.
"Holy Maiden, would you please?" Ye Kongfan stretched his hands out in invitation, signalling for Mo Qingcheng to take one of the two majestic master seats. If Mo Qingcheng sat down, there was no need to doubt that the one who sat next to her, would be Ye Kongfan himself.
Mo Qingcheng frowned. Although she wasn't adept at scheming, she understood what Ye Kongfan wanted to do. If she sat down with Ye Kongfan beside her, where would that place Qin Wentian? Naturally, it was impossible for her to accept this!
