Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The people in the surroundings all stared at Qing`er and Qin Wentian. Their relationship was evidently close, yet there seemed to be a sense of distance. After all, most of the crowd knew that Qin Wentian's wife was the Holy Maiden of the Medicine Sovereign Valley, Mo Qingcheng.
But what made all of them taken aback by shock was that it appeared that this maiden seemed to be acquainted with those who descended from the immortal palace. What was her identity exactly?
There were also experts from the Royal Sacred Sect who recognised Qing`er. This was none other than the maiden who threatened them in their Royal Sacred Sect before. And when they saw her cool-looking gaze, they couldn't help but to recall the words she said as their hearts trembled at the memory.
Was that truly words of arrogance?
This mysterious maiden, if she really wanted to raze the Royal Sacred Sect to the ground, would she not be able to accomplish it?
Upon thinking of here, their hearts went cold as the gaze they directed at Qin Wentian became filled with complexity. This young man that exuded unmatched magnificence throughout his generations, what charms does he have exactly? Why were the women beside him so outstanding?
Mo Qingcheng of the Medicine Sovereign Valley, Lin Xian`er of the Celestial Maiden Sect and at this moment, they realised that this mysterious Qing`er might very well be someone from the immortal realms.
"Princess Qing`er, it's time for us to leave." At this moment, Dongsheng Ting's voice drifted over. Qing`er didn't turn back. Her beautiful eyes were still looking at Qin Wentian. After which she mumbled,"I will..."
And at the instant when Qing`er spoke, a gust of wind breezed by. Beside Qin Wentian, yet another stunning silhouette appeared, causing many in the crowd to stare in dumbfounded amazement.
With the three maidens currently standing beside Qin Wentian, not one of them could shift their eyes away. The eyes which they stared at Qin Wentian with, it was already unknown whether the emotions flickering within were envy or jealousy.
Even for a character like Dongsheng Ting, he was also stunned by the beauty of the three maidens. His heart stirred slightly as he deeply glanced at Qin Wentian.
As for Zai Xuan, he was already completely numb with shock.
Qing`er's aura resembled a snow lotus, possessing a transcendent beauty that was out of this world. Mo Qingcheng seemed to shine with a holy light, appearing so saint-like that she seemed to be the incarnation of innocence. The soul-stirring fragile beauty of Lin Xian`er, caused the hearts of males around her to bloom with the desire to protect her.
Everything under the skies dimmed as these three women stood together, and all three of them stood beside Qin Wentian.
Lu Ziyan who was watching on the fence had already completely froze. Initially, her attitude when she came to this world was all high up and mighty. But at this moment, her pride was totally shattered. It wasn't because of a difference in strength but rather, it was in terms of looks. Her pride had been completely smashed apart, if she stood beside any of the three maidens, not a single male present would even glance at her.
She would simply be like the thin air, and could only be used as a contrast to the beauty of these maidens.
When Mo Qingcheng appeared, Qing`er cast a glance at her. It was impossible to tell the emotions from her cool-looking gaze.
Yet, Qin Wentian smiled at Mo Qingcheng and said,"You've come."
"Mhm." Mo Qingcheng held onto Qin Wentian's hand. That warm and gentle dainty hand of hers giving him strength. But from the perspectives of others, it appears that Mo Qingcheng was trying to flaunt her ownership, saying that she was the wife of Qin Wentian.
"I'm leaving." Qing`er's melodious voice mumbled, bidding farewell to Qin Wentian.
"Mhm." Qin Wentian nodded, exerting his strength slightly as he held on to Mo Qingcheng's hand.
After which, Qing`er turned and slowly rose up into the air. Her speed was extremely slow, it was evident that she was feeling an extreme reluctance.
The old man and Dongsheng Ting and the others were on the left and right of Qing`er. This ephemeral maiden who was referred to as 'Princess,' might be an actual princess from the immortal realms.
Qin Wentian's eyes were fixated on the departing back of Qing`er. He drew in a deep breath as his heart trembled violently, feeling as though he had just lost something.
And at this very moment, a soft voice could be heard in the air.
"Qing`er truly treats you very well."
That was Mo Qingcheng's voice, it was very soft, and spoken in a extremely gentle manner.
"During the times when you faced the greatest danger, she was always the one who appeared by your side. She's like your knight in shining armor, silently protecting you from the shadows. Even you yourself had no idea how much exactly she has done for you." Mo Qingcheng slowly continued, her voice was just as before, extremely soft but Qin Wentian could hear it clearly. His body involuntarily shook as he turned his gaze onto Mo Qingcheng's flawless countenance.
Even Lin Xian`er was deeply shaken. She stared incredulously at Mo Qingcheng, as though she didn't dare to believe that Mo Qingcheng would actually say such words at such a moment.
Qin Wentian too, he never would have expected.
At this moment, Mo Qingcheng was also gazing at Qin Wentian. A gentle smile painted her face as she spoke,"Master has told me some things in private. Wentian, the things Qing`er has done for you are things which I could never have done. In the past, without me by your side, Qing`er was the one who had always been taking care of you. She would always appear during the times when you needed help most."
The sunlight fell upon Mo Qingcheng's flawless face. Her smile was so beautiful, so radiant.
"So, I don't want this to be something which would become your regret. Similarly, I also don't want Qing`er to leave here with regrets in her heart. What are you doing? Quickly go chase after her! At the very least, tell her to wait for you..."
In Lin Xian`er's eyes, Mo Qingcheng's smile seemed a little silly. But that radiant smile, that gentle voice, actually caused Qin Wentian's eyes to redden with emotion. He trembled as he held out his hands, holding on to Mo Qingcheng's face tenderly only to see tears also flowing down from her eyes. Yet even so, she was still smiling at him.
"Why are you so silly..." Qin Wentian gently wiped away the tears on Mo Qingcheng's face.
"At the very least, my love for you wouldn't be so selfish. I can also do what Qing`er did, I have no regrets." Mo Qingcheng was still smiling amidst her tears."I don't want you to have a stone in your heart, I don't want you to regret this in the future. And...I don't want my love for you to become a shackle which binds you. Please forgive me if I get jealous, as a woman this is inevitable. But I would rather I myself be jealous than to see you being heartbroken."
"Quickly go and chase after her. Qing`er is a wonderful woman, she did so much for you, you shouldn't let her leave just like this." Mo Qingcheng tightly squeezed Qin Wentian's hand before letting him go. Despite her tears, the smile in her eyes made those sparkling drops so beautiful. This scene imprinted itself into Qin Wentian's mind, forever etched within.
Qin Wentian abruptly stepped forward, tightly hugging Mo Qingcheng. After a moment, he let go and rushed up to the skies, chasing after Qing`er.
Mo Qingcheng was still smiling as she watched the silhouette of Qin Wentian whistling through the skies. Her hand wiped away the tears from the corners of her eyes and those teardrops seemed to be the most beautiful and the most selfless thing in the world at this moment.
"Qing`er!" Qin Wentian called out. That flawless silhouette that was slowly soaring up the skies paused, she halted her steps and turned, only to see Qin Wentian rushing over in her direction.
Very quickly, Qin Wentian appeared once more in front of Qing`er.
Qing`er stared at Qin Wentian as her lips trembled, yet she didn't know what to say.
"Qing`er, can I hug you?" Qin Wentian's eyes flashed with a smile akin to the sunshine, as though he wanted to melt away the snow from the snow lotus.
Qing`er's body shook, her beautiful eyes involuntarily blinked as a look of shyness faintly showed on her face. But after which, she nodded her head lightly as her hands pulled nervously at the fabric of her dress,"Okay..."
Qin Wentian smiled. He walked up and stretched both his arms, directly bringing Qing`er's soft body into his embrace. He used a lot of strength in this hug, Qing`er's delicate frame shivered lightly but she soon regained her earlier calm. She didn't know what to do with both her hands but eventually, she placed them on Qin Wentian's shoulders, resting them there. At this moment, she only felt sunshine in her heart.
It was as though Qin Wentian used his hug to melt Qing`er away. Only after a very long moment did Qin Wentian relinquish his hold, but his hands were still placed on the willowy waist of Qing`er. The two of them gazed into the eyes of the other and the distance between them was so close. Right now on the face of the beautiful maiden akin to a snow lotus, a faint blush could be seen. And for some reason, it made her even more alluring than before.
Abruptly, Qin Wentian moved his head forward. His lips directly pressed onto Qing`er's soft lips, as he embraced her once again.
Qing`er felt a thunderbolt going off in her mind, she stood there dumbfoundedly, allowing Qin Wentian to kiss her as he will. Her long lashes were so beautiful, and at that moment when she closed her eyes, glimmers of tears could also be seen within.
The countenance of the old man and Dongsheng Ting who were behind her drastically changed. Helplessness could be seen in the eyes of the old man, yet a glint of coldness actually flashed through Dongsheng Ting's eyes. However, he couldn't stop this, he didn't have any right to stop this.
"I'm leaving now." In the throes of their emotion, Qing`er actually pushed Qin Wentian away. After which, she turned and continued her way, as though she didn't want to let Qin Wentian see her reluctance, and to see the tears flowing from her face. She was worried that if she still remained here for one more moment, she would decide never to leave this world.
"Qing`er, wait for me there." Qin Wentian's voice drifted from behind. However, Qing`er's steps didn't slow and she even quickened her pace.
"I will definitely head to the immortal realms to look for you. Even if I have to break through the realms one by one, even if I have to trample upon the nine heavenly layers. I will definitely find you. These clouds are unable to block my vision of you; this piece of sky won't be able to obstruct the path to me finding you!" The stone in Qin Wentain's heart seemed to transform into a raging waterfall that gushed out torrents of water at this instant. He held nothing back.
Qing`er inclined her head, staring at the clouds and staring at this piece of sky. Tears already long stained her face before this!
