AST 1745 - Sacred Mudra Flower, Sacred Ocean Sound Cave
Qing Shui's transformation made the remaining Ocean Demons feel very astonished. Their morale, which had already been very low, now hit rock bottom.
It was as if Yan Ziyun had plunged into the deepest and darkness valley. He suddenly felt as if the world was dark and desolate, and that his life had reached an end. It seemed that he was at his wit's end.
He was pushed back by Qing Shui once again. Qing Shui’s strength and battle prowess seemed to have gotten a lot stronger suddenly. It was just like what was said earlier, the car hadn't changed. It was the road that had changed. Therefore, the speed naturally differed greatly.
The mutation to the Yin-Yang Image brought about overwhelming effects. Qing Shui had the feeling as if he had seen the light at the end of a tunnel, and that the entire world now seemed to be extremely bright and clear. Even the Ocean Demons before him were but small fry.
As time passed, Qing Shui felt that everything seemed to flow increasingly smoothly. His body seemed extremely light and domineering. The dominating power and perfect movements flowed perfectly together.
Vertical Dragon Defiance!
Qing Shui suddenly turned and the surroundings seemed to have plunged into a mysterious feeling. His silhouette suddenly moved up a step. This movement could be said to be indistinct. However, no one could tell that it was a single step.
Qing Shui's silhouette once again moved up in a backspin. The hearts of countless Ocean Demons felt as if someone had stomped down on them, and their bodies swayed.
The sky, which had been clear before, now seemed to be covered in dark clouds.
Qing Shui needed to release the fury in his heart. He threw a glance toward the Sunset Palace Mistress and his heart ached. His silhouette once again moved upward.
This time around, an Ocean Demon's body paused. Even Yan Ziyun felt his heart sank as he looked at that upright figure, having the feeling as if he was looking at a towering mountain.
Yan Ziyun felt increasingly uneasy. They were unable to fend off Qing Shui despite their numbers. Qing Shui's silhouette continued to rise up while they were unable to do the same. They kept being pushed down by Qing Shui, being stomped down by his heavy steps.
Yan Ziyun looked at Qing Shui and suddenly seemed to have realized something. However, at this moment, Qing Shui's feet stomped down!
Seven Steps Nine Palace Crush!
As Qing Shui stomped down one final time, Yan Ziyun's body was sent flying backward as he spurted blood. He wasn't the only one in that state. It was the same for a few others as well. One of them even disappeared in midair directly.
Even with the Yin-Yang Image's mutation, Qing Shui still used the Seven Steps Nine Palace Crush when he was attacked by so many people. He wouldn't have been able to use this in the future, as his opponents wouldn't give him the chance. However, it was now very easy for him to use it.
This was the rise in one's abilities.
The battle was practically over. It was a little dramatic. Qing Shui's sudden transformation caused his battle prowess to be increased by several folds. The fight which seemed a little unpredictablel, was now not worth a mention.
Once the battle ended, Qing Shui immediately headed back to where the Sunset Palace Mistress was. Looking at the pale and weak beauty, he reached out his hands and took hold of her from Muyun Qingge's hands.
The Sunset Palace Mistress's injuries had stabilized. Qing Shui tried to sense her condition. The leave of the Golden Buddha Aura Lotus would only be able to help sustain her condition for a month.
"Qing Shui, don't waste it. So what if I can live for a few more days? I'm already very happy to see that you're fine." The Sunset Palace Mistress rested in Qing Shui's arms, smiling happily.
"Foolish lass, if you were to continue to say foolish words, I'll whack you on the butt." Qing Shui felt very upset and unknowing hugged her tightly.
"I'm unafraid. I won't be afraid no matter what you do to me." The Sunset Palace Mistress said weakly. Her smile seemed to be so pitiful to Qing Shui.
Muyun Qingge, who was at the side, felt very upset as well. She had lost interest in the treasure chamber before them.
"Qingge, Brother, the two of you go take a look at the treasure chamber. If it's the Nine Palace Positioning, then give me a call. If it isn't, then take a look to see what's inside. There might be miraculous pills inside." Qing Shui said, a little out of sorts.
Shui Yunfeng nodded. Muyun Qingge hesitated for a moment before she headed for the entrance to the treasure chamber.
Qing Shui checked Luo Qingcheng's condition. Her body was very weak. Earlier, her vitality had been seeping away rapidly, but her condition was stablized now. He only had fewer than ten pieces of the Golden Buddha Aura Lotus with him. This meant that she had only ten months left to live.
Ten months was too short!
"Qingcheng, there's something which I've never told you." Qing Shui carried her and sat down.
"Don't tell me that you like me and that you want me to be your woman or something like that. Other than that, I'll believe whatever you say." The Sunset Palace Mistress smiled very happily as she looked at Qing Shui.
A hint of a bitter smile appeared on Qing Shui's face. This lady was very clever. She didn't want the scene to become pathetic and did her best to act nonchalantly.
"If I manage to treat you, can you promise me one thing?" Qing Shui gave it some thought and said.
"What is it?" Luo Qingcheng smiled as she looked at Qing Shui.
"If I manage to treat you, can you be my wife?" Qing Shui said seriously.
Luo Qingcheng smiled and looked at Qing Shui. "Qing Shui, am I very pitiful? Is it that there's really no one who'd want me?"
"It's not that no one wants you, but that they can't afford to want you."
"You fool. Elder Sister understands. There's no need for you to feel so guilty. It's out of my own will to do all this and I'm very happy. I'm willing to do anything for you. There's no need for you to feel guilty." Luo Qingcheng lifted her head and looked into the distance.
"Do you think that it's because I feel guilty? There are no men who wouldn't like you. The reason I didn't take this step previously was because I already had a lot of women and I need to be responsible towards them and to you. I'm afraid that if I were to accept you, all of you would feel aggrieved." Qing Shui said bitterly.
"Really? You like me as well?" Luo Qingcheng looked at Qing Shui happily.
"All men who are normal would like a lady who is very charming. Humans aren't animals and won't rush up to have sex just because they like the other party. All creatures who understand feelings know that everything must be established on emotions."
"Vulgar." When Luo Qingcheng heard Qing Shui's words, her face turned red, and a sickly flush appeared on her pale face as she could not help but speak to Qing Shui in slight annoyance.
"Are you going to agree to my request?"
"Why is it that it's only now that you want me to become your woman? Is it because you pity me?" Luo Qingcheng smiled.
"No one can afford to pity you. You're a fairy that had come down to the mortal world. Who would dare to pity you? It'd have to be you pitying them instead. Please take pity on me." Qing Shui lowered his head and smiled, saying.
"You're flippant. I know my current condition and that I have no hope of recovering. Qing Shui, I'm really very happy now. I'm satisfied." Luo Qingcheng reached out her hand and placed it against Qing Shui's face.
"With me around, you'll be able to recover. I'm just short one medicine. With it, I'll be able to heal you."
"What medicine?" Luo Qingcheng felt that Qing Shui didn't seem to be lying.
"Sacred Mudra Flower!" Qing Shui said softly.
"Legend has it that the Sacred Ocean Sound Cave has it, but whether or not this is true is unknown. Qing Shui, forget about it." Luo Qingcheng gave it some thought and quickly said. She knew that the place was very dangerous. It was a place deep in the Northern Sea that was filled with dangers.
