On top of a firmly stood Mountain of the Healing Soul, Feng Qing Ming's expression was calm as his oversized sleeves floated in the wind.
Ling Xian stood behind the Immortal of Arrays and let his white robe tussle in the wind rhythmically. After breaking through to the completion level, his temperament became even more extraordinary. Like a true immortal, he rose above others.
Two of them stood at the front and one at the back, they stayed at the peak of the valley and stared at the white clouds in the sky. Nobody knew what they were thinking of.
After a while, Feng Qing Ming exhaled loudly and said, "Ling Xian, I want to plead you of something."
"You are being funny. I am in debt of your kindness, what's there to plead for?" Ling Xian grinned, "Whatever it is, you can simply instruct me."
Hearing this, Feng Qing Ming's heart felt warm. The way he looked at Ling Xian softened, "I knew you were someone appreciative and you definitely would not decline."
"If I'm not wrong, it's about the Yan Clan." Ling Xian beamed, guessing what Feng Ming Qing wanted.
"Smart." Feng Qing Ming smiled but quickly wiped it off. He sighed, "I am merely a soul right now and I cannot do a lot of things. Thus I have to ask you."
"Do not worry. I am grateful to you, please speak of whatever it is that you need. If I can do it, I will not object." Ling Xian nodded. The reason why he was able to break the immortal trap and enter the completion level was mostly thanks to Feng Qing Ming. Without the legacy of the Immortal of Arrays, there was no way he could break the chains of the immortal trap.
Therefore, before he even knew what Feng Qing Ming wanted, he agreed to it. Because whatever it was, he would use his all to achieve.
This was Ling Xian!
A person with a heavy sense of righteousness.
"It's really nothing too big." Feng Qing Ming sighed as his eyes spoke of sadness, "That year, after I departed, I never saw Xin Yan again. Today, I want to visit her grave."
Ling Xian frowned. Thinking about the girl whose smile was like a blossoming flower, he hesitated.
Feng Qing Ming frowned, "Will it be difficult?"
"Not exactly difficult." Ling Xian smiled wryly, "It's just that if I go to the Yan Clan, I might not be able to come out."
"What do you mean by that?"
Feng Qing Ming was confused. He then remembered Yan Ning Zhi and realized why Ling Xian was hesitant and couldn't help it but to laugh, "What can I even say about you."
"Immortal, can I not go?" Ling Xian tested. Lin Qing Yi's smile flashed across his mind and the corner of his mouth lifted.
"Not go?" Feng Qing Ming chuckled, "You just promised and swore that if it was something you could do, you would not hesitate. You are regretting it already?"
"Immortal, I am not rejecting. I am simply worried…" Ling Xian didn't know how to react.
"Worried about what?" Feng Qing Ming asked in return, "Worried that the Yan Clan will keep you and force you to marry?"
"Not exactly. I am worried of hurting Yan Ning Zhi." Ling Xian shook his head, unwilling to go.
"I don't care. I must visit Xin Yan's grave. You do whatever you have to do." Feng Qing Ming blinked teasingly, "What are you afraid of? You dared to fight against completion powerhouses as a foundational. Yet now you are afraid of a weak girl?"
Ling Xian hesitated and sighed, "Okay. If I remembered correctly, the Yan Clan is on the Shang Island. It is the most prosperous island of the 36 islands. I heard all kinds of rare treasures
could be found there. I plan on going there anyways."
"You are going to seek materials needed for a spatial portal?" Feng Qing Ming guessed Ling Xian's plans.
"Yes. I have broken through to the completion level. The next step is to construct the portal and get back to Yunzhou." Ling Xian nodded.
This was the plan he had since the beginning. To first break the immortal trap, reach the completion level, then form a portal and return to Yunzhou.
After all, there was too much unfinished business back there.
"Perfect then." Feng Qing Ming smiled, "You can take me to Xin Yan's grave and also collect materials needed for your array. Two birds with one stone."
"Well… that is true.. but…" Ling Xian bitterly laughed and sighed, "Oh well, I will do as you wish."
"Haha, that is the right attitude." Feng Qing Ming laughed out loud. Thinking that he can finally visit his loved one's gave, he couldn't help it but to excited.
Ling Xian smiled at the overjoyed Feng Qing Ming, "Then, I will bid my farewell."
"Go." Feng Qing Ming nodded then suddenly remembered something. He mysteriously smiled, "Oh wait, go to the Untainted first. There's something nice."
Ling Xian was a little stunned then smiled, "Okay."
Then, in a flash, he arrived at the mountain valley where the Untainted stayed at.
The Untainted's back was facing Ling Xian. She wore all white and like a fairy, her appearance was unapparelled beautiful like always.
"The Untainted." Ling Xian paid his respect and asked, "I heard you wanted to see me?"
The Untainted nodded and uttered out a sentence that made Ling Xian's heart thump faster.
"I have something I want to pass down to you."
Instantly, Ling Xian's eyes brightened.
Who was the Untainted?"
She was a hero in the history of Qing. She had dominated all land, heavens, and hell and was known to be undefeatable during her era!
In the entire history, out of all the unimaginable powerhouses, she was definitely on top of the list. Even if one thought with one's toes, one would know that her techniques were something that could brighten the past and were unmatchable in strength!
How could Ling Xian's heart not waver?
However, what the Untainted said next poured cold water on his flaming heart.
"Don't be too happy too soon. This technique is insanely dominating. With your cultivation level now, you may not succeed in acquiring it."
Ling Xian bitterly chuckled, "Then, I wonder at which level will I be able to learn this technique?"
"The intermediate phase of the completion level at the very least." The Untainted said.
Instantly, Ling Xian's eyes shone again and hope was reignited. He was at the beginning stage of the completion level. With the speed of his training, he would reach the intermediate stage soon enough.
Then, he could acquire the Untainted unparalleled technique!
Thinking about that made Ling Xian ecstatic. His handsome face was of pure anticipation.
"Okay. I have nothing else really. You do your tasks now." The Untainted softly muttered before she fixated her gaze on the moving clouds in the sky. Nobody knew what she was thinking about.
Seeing this, Ling Xian bowed and left the Painting of the Nine Immortals.
It had been two years. It was time to visit the Zi Yang descendants.
