Ye Zichen turned to stone. He lost sight of everything in front of him except the person smiling at him.
Emotions overwhelmed him when he saw her.His eyes watered, his hands trembled…At this moment, the Flame Emperor and co. also walked out from the secret tunnel…
“Mes…”“Shhh,” Liu Qing put her finger to her lips to indicate them to remain silent. At the same time, she turned back to look at the pair gazing at each other. It was as if there was nothing else in their eyes except each other and heated tears. Tears dribbled down the ground and splattered on the red carpet in the Cloudy Palace of the Golden Arches.
“Is it you?” After a long time, Ye Zichen finally managed to form a cohesive sentence.It may have seemed like something simple.But both of them knew how much it meant to him. Ye Zichen stared closely at the person in front of him. He wanted to see her nod…And just as he hoped, that person nodded.
“How have you been?”
“Good, and you?”
“Good as well. You might not believe it right now, but I am still in charge of everything here. You see the people behind me? They are the leaders the Immortal Region, Heavenly Court and Underworld; and they all have to answer to me now.”
“Who…” Jade Emperor tried to argue, but immediately stopped when he saw Liu Qing’s glare.“I believe you. Just like before, I will never doubt you.”
“Mmm,” Ye Zichen nodded with a smile. “Did they bully you over there?”
“That’s good. Tiantian has been great.”
“Mm, I’m sure you would take good care of her.”
“I’ve missed you.”
“Me too.” Ye Zichen, who has always been good with words, suddenly stuttered. He wasn’t sure how he should speak with the woman in front of him.The best choice was actually to run up and give her a hug, but for some reason he felt his body stiffen in place.However, he soon smiled.She did as well. Both of them had many things to say to each other, but the timely smile surpassed any words.
“Hmm, this is not going to what I imaged. I thought you would immediately run up, hug her and tell her how much you missed her,” Liu Qing spoke up in a very untimely manner. She was like a third wheel that stood between the two. She tiptoed and stood up straight as if trying to block off the pair from looking at each other.
“Now you’re getting annoying,” Ye Zichen rolled his eyes speechlessly in response to Liu Qing destroying the atmosphere.
Liu Qing merely shrugged with a pout, “So what? Your depressed tone through the phone. Zezeze…”
“Shush!” Ye Zichen raised his hand.
“What? You’re going to hit me? I’m telling you, I brought Big Sister Xiao here. If you dare to hit me, then I really will take her to the God Realm so you won’t be able to see her.”
“Ugh, alright, fine, you win." Ye Zichen gave in. Liu Qing nodded happily, then skipped over to the person in front of Ye Zichen. It was none other than Xiao Yumei.The person who had lingered on Ye Zichen’s mind; the one who caused Ye Zichen to wish for the destruction of the demons at all cost just to save her. Now…At that very moment, she was in front of him once more.Ye Zichen could still feel her gentleness from her smile just like before.
“Hey, can you guys stop looking each other with that passionate gaze? I’ll be jealous, you know!” Liu Qing pouted.Xiao Yumei looked at her in confusion, then glanced at Ye Zichen. She knew about the girls by Ye Zichen’s side, but she didn’t recall seeing Liu Qing.
“Big Sister Xiao, you don’t know me, but I know you. I already knew you in the Modern Realm. I was there even when you guys were… Hehehe…”
“Liuuu Qinnnnng!” Ye Zichen shouted.
Liu Qing stuck her tongue out with a giggle, “Looks like I said the wrong thing. Oh well, but basically, we have known each other for a long long time.”
Then, her expression turned solemn, “I know you two have a lot to say to each other, but I feel like it’s more urgent to talk about my matters first, right?”
This sudden change in mood shocked everyone. Liu Qing had practically turned from a normal little girl to the true messenger of the God Realm. However, they did not understand just what made the messenger act like this. “When is the Demon Realm’s messenger arriving?”
Although the others didn’t know what was going on, Ye Zichen understood perfectly what Liu Qing referring to. Xiao Yumei’s return might have surprised him, but he understood that he had plenty of time with Xiao Yumei in the future, what was most important was to deal with the Demon Realm’s messenger.
The other people were shocked. Demon Realm’s messenger…Didn’t we just defeat the demons? Why is the Demon Realm’s messenger coming?
“He should be arriving in three days if nothing happens. Of course, I won’t let him arrive. Your identity will be exposed if he arrives here, so my plan is to kill him where he descends in two days.”
“Mmm, what do I need to do?” asked Ye Zichen.“Big Brother Twelve knows a formation that requires four Supreme level experts as the eye of the formations. The formation is able to quickly increase the strength of one of the people in the eyes of the formation. Since I don’t have many people I can trust in the God Realm, I can only rely on Brother Twelve and I. That’s why I need you to provide the other two people for me.”
Supreme.That was a level of existence which might be common in the God Realm, but they were currently in the Lower Three Realms. Supreme level means surpassing the Immortal King level. But around here…
“Oh yeah, since I am of the Sky Supreme level and Brother Twelve is a ninth rank Earth Supreme. That means that the other two only has to be half a step into the Supreme levels,” Liu Qing added. Half-a-step!Ye Zichen instinctively glanced at the Jade Emperor. The Jade Emperor was speechless. All he wanted was to ascend peacefully, he didn’t want to fight the Demon Realm’s messenger. He looked down to avoid Ye Zichen’s gaze, but the latter already walked beside him.
“Jade Emperor, how about being the eye of the formation?”
“Me?” The Jade Emperor raised his eyebrows. Ugh, I knew it.
“Of course it wouldn’t be without any return. I promise you that the ley line will recover when you return and will help you breakthrough immediately.” The Jade Emperor really did want to refuse, but then he noticed the God Realm’s messenger’s gaze.
"Alright, I’ll go. But let me ask a question first. Since the formation increases the strength of one eye of the formation, then who will be fighting the Demon Realm’s messenger?’
He had to make sure of that first. After all, he didn’t want to die fighting the Demon Realm’s messenger.
“Don’t worry about that. The main person fighting will be me!” Liu Qing answered without any hesitation.
