AST 1679 - Back to Sunset Sea King Palace, Ocean Domain, Main Continent
Qing Shui and Tantai Lingyan went on their return journey. Both of them didn’t feel good in their hearts because the case of Demonic Saber Immortal Sect wasn’t really over. The spark could reignite any time in the future.
Qing Shui had many thoughts in his mind too. Previously there was Fiver Tigers Immortal Sect, now there’s Demonic Saber Immortal Sect. They were of Divine’s grade and were both enemies, in which forthcoming confrontation was expected.
It’s bustling and lively in Linhai city now that Demon Lord Palace had already moved here. Qing Shui had other plans seeing that there shouldn’t be any events for some time on this quiet side. He wanted to look around the Northern Sea and visit the Sunset Sea King Palace.
Qing Shui and Tantai Lingyan were back to check out Demon Lord Palace.Qin Qing, Hua Rumei, and Zhan Yu were there along with the others. Everything went smooth and steady. They spent a few days there before returning to the Imperial Dining Hall.
Qing Shui couldn’t stop now, he had tons of things to be done. After staying in Linhai city for few days, Yin Tong and Lan Lingfeng had improved tremendously. However, they still needed some time and fortuitous encounter to breakthrough and achieve Divine.
It’d been a while since he left. For warriors, a year or so was considered as a short duration, even ten years or twenty years. Nevertheless, occasionally, it’s the crucial time for transformations within three months, two months, or even one month.
Three days later, Qing Shui showed up in the Divine Cave. It’d been emptied out here, the two Mistresses must have abandoned this place for a while.
Looking at this familiar place, Qing Shui felt warm in his heart. This was a very important spot for Qing Shui. A spot led by the Five Elements Divine Flag and the fastest route for Qing Shui to reach Haohan Continent.
Everything was clean and untainted by a speck of dust. The soulful atmosphere in the air was still so dense. The Mistresses were not around, both of them, should be three of them since there’s Sunset Palace Mistress too now; All of them were not here.
Qing Shui was pleased when he thought of the three Mistresses who were together and all possessed strengths of Divine. There’re also a few strong and powerful beasts. After all, he was not too worried about this place. Nobody could threaten them as long as they didn’t go to the Northern Sea.
After staying for a moment, Qing Shui rushed to the Sunset Sea King Palace. It’s quite far the distance from here to Sunset Sea King Place, but it’s only about a day’s journey for Qing Shui’s speed.
Paragon Water Flight!
Qing Shui advanced in the water swiftly. He got closer and closer to Sunset Sea King Palace. His heart stirred up as he got nearer to the destination.
He knew Yiye Jiange was the source of this excitement. This woman had become his wife now, she was her woman. It’s already the next morning when Qing Shui arrived at the Sunset Sea King Palace.
In spite of his long absence, he was still the guardian of Sunset Sea King Palace. He wasn’t afraid of not being able to enter since he held the guardian’s token. However, he didn’t expect the guards to know his existence and bowed to him as they saw him.
A butler came to meet Qing Shui and sent his man to inform the three Mistresses.
The Mistresses were overjoyed upon hearing Qing Shui’s arrival. They appeared in front of Qing Shui rapidly. Their beauty remained the same. Looking at three graceful and charming ladies, Qing Shui could only have his eyes on Yiye Jiange alone.
“You’re here!” Yiye Jiange came forward to Qing Shui gladly. There were slight tenderness and warmth like Qin Qing in her mystical scent.
Qing Shui stepped forward and held her, it’s a normal act since they’re husband and wife. Yiye Jiange felt awkward as Muyun Qingge and Sunset Palace Mistress were around.
Muyun Qingge smiled as she observed both of them cuddling. Sunset Palace Mistress smiled too, but with slight disappointment in her eyes.
“I’m back, I miss you dearly,” Qing Shui grinned.
Yiye Jiange blushed a little, she whispered, “I miss you too!”
After hugging for a while, Yiye Jiange pushed Qing Shui away lightly. Qing Shui only greeted the other two Mistresses then.
Qing Shui sensed upsetness from Sunset Palace Mistress’s expression as he greeted them. He knew this woman liked him and she’d confessed it more than once. Perhaps because of Yiye Jiange now, she didn’t hug Qing Shui like she would and used to before.
Yiye Jiange smiled. In fact, she understood everything. She discussed with Sunset Palace Lord and Muyun Qingge before that she’s not Qing Shui’s only woman, so they didn’t have to mind her feelings. Frankly what that meant was, it’s not significant for him to own both of them or to live without them.
Of course, Yiye Jiange took it lightly and said that jokingly. She could notice that Sunset Palace Mistress was fond of Qing Shui. As the days passed by, they had become as close as sisters. Hence, she understood it when she saw Sunset Palace Mistress behaving that way and shared her thoughts. Nevertheless, it’s up to them to decide what to do.
Yiye Jiange didn’t mind how many women there were around Qing Shui. She definitely wished for Qing Shui’s only love, yet, those were merely thoughts. Moreover, she got over the matter and accepted the way it was at the moment. She liked him but there’s neither need to cling to him nor staying by his side. It’s alright this way, this was the kind of life she wanted.
Qing Shui went to the great hall along with three Mistresses. Qing Shui looked at the surroundings. Nothing major had changed comparing to the time he left.
“Nothing much happened all these while right!” Qing Shui guessed based on the little changes he observed.
“Not much, but after a discussion, we felt it’s time to visit the Northern Sea. Qing Shui, shall we go to the Northern Sea?” Yiye Jiange said after some thoughts.
“Do all of you want to go?”
Three Mistresses were strong Divine warriors, their knowledge had increased with time, so were their strengths. It’s no longer challenging here. There would only be improvements where there’re challenges; there would only be pressure when there’s competition; there would only be drive when there’s pressure. It’s the same each and every time.
“We discussed among ourselves and felt the need to go. We’re not alone here, everyone has been too easy and comfortable. It’s not a good thing for warriors,” Sunset Palace Mistress said slowly.
Qing Shui smiled, “The main reason that I’m back is to prepare and bring all of you to explore the Northern Sea and open up the breakthrough opportunities. It’s a failure for ocean domain not to enter a large ocean domain.”
“Really?” The three Mistresses obviously didn’t see that coming. They didn’t expect that Qing Shui returned to bring them to Northern Sea. In fact, they couldn’t believe it.
Qing Shui nodded, “I think the influence of Ocean Domain and Main Continent can be merged. I could only try opening up a nick of the Ocean Domain together with you.”
Qing Shui actually wanted to work two tasks at the same time. Divine Moon Immortal Sect on the Main Continent; Sunset Sea King Palace on the Ocean Domain. However, he couldn’t be sure which of them would progress at a faster rate.
