“Who is that?” Xu Que, Duan Jiude, Liu Jingning, and Mo Junchen fixed their eyes on Buttface at the same time. Buttface answered seriously, “Bai Suzhen!”
“Ah?” Duan Jiude, Mo Junchen, and Liu Jingning were totally confused by this answer. Xu Que twitched his lips and said, as he patted Buttface’s head angrily, “Are you insane? Bai Suzhen has nothing to do with the one in this cave! Don’t talk irresponsibly if you have no idea what you are talking about!”
“Holy sh*t! I am not kidding! That’s definitely Bai Suzhen. Just pay attention to what she is singing now. The “Qingcheng Mountain”…” Then, Buttface started to sing by pinching his throat, “I am Bai Suzhen living in the Qingcheng Mountain! I obtained this human form after 1,000 years’ cultivation! Ah, ah, ah, ah…” He even started to writhe his body like a snake passionately.
Seeing this, Xu Que knocked Buttface’s forehead with his palm immediately. “Shut up!” Xu Que shouted as he stared at Buttface with embarrassment. Buttface associated the lyrics of “Qingcheng Mountain” with Bai Suzhen, which meant he had really learned a lot when he was on Earth! Actually, Xu Que also heard the sound of singing in the cave now. Although he also heard the words of “Qingcheng Mountain” vaguely, the melody was not correct. Also, there should have been other words in the lyrics. But the singer was too far away. None of them could hear the lyrics clearly.
“D*mn! Little brat, can’t I express what I think? You tell me, who is singing in this cave?” Buttface said angrily. After being slapped by Xu Que, he was furious out of humiliation. He had to retort to express his anger.
“Just knock it off! I’m not going to guess. This is just a love song that has been handed down for many years!” Liu Jingning asked curiously at this time.
“A love song?” Xu Que and the others turned to Liu Jingning. Liu Jingning said softly, “I spent most of my time on the Heaven Continent in the library of the Utopia Faction. I remember a story about the love between a building head of the Heaven Palace Sect and the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction. It was recorded in an ancient book!”
“Is it a touching love story?” Buttface asked. Liu Jingning nodded her head, “At that time, the Utopia Faction was much more powerful and prestigious than it is now. The Heaven Palace Sect, which was a top sect on the Heaven Continent, was even more powerful than the Utopia Faction. A building head of the Heaven Palace Sect, whose status was unimaginably high, fell in love with the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction. However, their relationship was ridiculed by the public. Some even said the Holy Virgin seduced that building head with the magic arts of Demonic Sects so that she could gain higher status in this world. At last, they managed to tie the knot!”
“This is not touching at all!” Buttface said, frowning.
“Later, the Heaven Palace Sect lost a High-grade Celestial Artifact. Everyone was sure it had been stolen by the Holy Virgin who was living in the Heaven Palace Sect and had just given birth to a child. The building head did his best to protect her. He even fought against the other three building heads. At last, the Holy Virgin was captured. The building head was exiled to the ancestral grave!”
After saying that, Liu Jingning stopped for a while. Then she sighed and continued, “After that, they ruined all the cultivation achievements of the Holy Virgin and drove her out of the Heaven Palace Sect. However, she just knelt outside the gate of the Heaven Palace Sect every day and hoped she could see the building head and her child. But her requests were ignored by the Heaven Palace Sect. When the Dean finished his secluded cultivation, he allowed her to go to the mountain behind the sect. However, as the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction, she was not qualified to enter the ancestral grave. So she could only watch that building head outside the restrictive spell. At last, she died at the entrance of the grave after singing a song to the building head! This song was recorded and kept by the Utopia Faction!” Liu Jingning said as she looked at the pitch-dark cave in front of her, “I know this is the song that was sung by the Holy Virgin at that time!”
“What? This is…” Duan Jiude asked in surprise. Xu Que was also surprised and he thought, “This story was so weird! How could that Holy Virgin, who managed to meet that building head with great difficulties, die directly after singing a song to him? Something was definitely wrong about this story! For example, how did the Holy Virgin die?”
As if she could read his thoughts, Liu Jingning continued, “Till now, nobody knows how the Holy Virgin died! Some said she died from diseases caused by kneeling outside the Heaven Palace Sect after losing her cultivation achievements. Someone else said he saw the Dean kill her in front of the building head!” Liu Jingning shook her head sadly. After all, that Holy Virgin was Liu Jingning’s senior. Her miserable fate was quite lamentable. However, Liu Jingning realized she couldn’t hate the Heaven Palace Sect as it had long gone and only the Heaven Palace Academy was left now.
“Eh…why did he kill her? They had ruined her cultivation achievements, right? That Dean was so sinister and cruel!” Duan Jiude said, frowning..
“I have a feeling that something is wrong with this story! So many details are unknown. And it is quite creepy too!” Xu Que said thoughtfully. For him, this was not a love story but a horror story! They could still hear the sound of singing from a woman in the cave.
“Indeed, it is a weird story. It seems the one who recorded this story didn’t dare to write down too many details, which makes this story so mysterious and creepy!” Mo Junchen added.
Xu Que nodded his head. Many key points were not mentioned in this story. For example, why did so many people object to the relationship between the building head and the Holy Virgin of the Utopia Faction? Normally, nobody dared to criticize the woman of a building head whose status was that high. Also, the Heaven Palace Sect just lost a High-grade Celestial Artifact. According to the descriptions of Liu Jingning, the Heaven Palace Sect was a top sect at that time. How could the four building heads fight for a Celestial Artifact? After locking the building head in the ancestral grave, they ruined the Holy Virgin’s cultivation achievements but didn’t kill her. Also, they allowed her to kneel at the gate of the Heaven Palace Sect for a long time, which was totally unreasonable! After all, her behavior would impair the reputation of the Heaven Palace Sect!
Of course, these weren’t the most conspicuous doubtful point. The most conspicuous point was where was the child of the Holy Virgin? It was never mentioned in the story. Also, since the Dean took the Holy Virgin to meet that building head, why did he kill her in front of the building head? Did he worry that the Holy Virgin would say something inappropriate? Or did he want to aggravate the Building Head by doing that? It was such a messy and illogical story and so weird. But it was still recorded and kept by the Utopia Faction till today!
“Wait a moment! You’ve talked about this story for a long time. But I still have a question!” Buttface stepped out and asked at this moment, “Who stole that High-grade Celestial Artifact?”
“…..” His question was ignored by the others here. “Who stole that Celestial Artifact? That wasn’t the key point of this story!”
“Hey! Listen, it seems as if she has stopped singing. Now, she is talking!” Duan Jiude said curiously as he placed his ears on the wall of the cave. The next moment, they heard a clear voice. “Xuanyuan…Xuanyuan…” The woman who had been singing before just now started to cry as she murmured a name.
Xu Que was surprised immediately. “Xuanyuan? This family name is so familiar!
Wait! Xuanyuan? A building head of the Heaven Palace Sect? Xuanyuan Wanrong?” GASP! Instantly, Xu Que gasped. Does it mean the building head in this story was Xuanyuan Wanrong? Is Xuanyuan Wanrong a man who dressed like a woman?
