AST 1786 - Returning Home After Many Years
The head of the Heavenly Saber Manor left. Qing Shui felt that he should be leaving as well. The other party should know what to do. However, it was just like what the Heavenly Saber Manor's head had said, there would probably be someone who would come to look for Qing Shui. It should be an even more powerful existence in the Phoenix God Organization.
"Old Master, Brother, we'll take our leave first." Qing Shui had a strong yearning to head back. After all, he hadn't gone back for many years.
To the current Qing Shui, returning home would take just an instant.
"Be careful on your way!"
Qing Shui and Yiye Jiange brought along Qing Xiu, waved their hands, and disappeared from the sight of Soulsearch and the others.
"Old Master, I wonder if we'll be able to overcome this safely." Soulsearch looked at the direction in which Qing Shui had disappeared in and said hesitantly.
"Haha, there's no need to worry. When the sky collapse, the tall people would support it up. The Phoenix God Organization's goal is the Dancing Phoenix Continent and they aren't the only organization there. Moreover, Qing Shui's current abilities are already unfathomable. Did you notice? He appeared very relaxed even when talking about Divinities. He wasn't even a little surprised." Puyang Qing now appeared very relaxed and said happily.
"Old Master is saying that Qing Shui is also at the Divine Grade?" Soulsearch said agitatedly.
"That Heavenly Saber Manor's head should be at Peak False God, but he seemed to show no resistance against Qing Shui. It can only say that Qing Shui is at least a Divinity."
Soulsearch had an indescribable feeling. It was a feeling an ordinary person in Qing Shui's previous life would have, when his elder brother turns out to be a mayor or something. The impact was similar or could be even greater.
"This is really unbelievable. Qing Shui is already a Divinity at such a young age." Soulsearch chuckled, feeling a little light in the head.
Nine Continents Steps...
When Qing Shui came to a stop once again, they were already very, very close to home. They changed to the golden dragon and flew towards Qing Clan.
When they were several tens of Lis away, Qing Shui kept the golden dragon, took Yiye Jiange and carried Qing Xiu as they flew toward home.
The prosperous city was still filled with busy traffic. Over so many years, the development hadn't been fast nor were there any obvious changes. After all, when the material prosperity reached a certain level, the progress would slow down.
The closer they were to home, the more nostalgic Qing Shui felt. He was worried if there had been any recent occurrences to the family. Although he already knew that nothing had happened, he still had a great yearning to go home and take a look.
When the guard at the door saw Qing Shui, he was first stunned and then pleasantly shouted, "Mister Qing is back!"
This guard had also been found by Qing Shui. They were indebted to Qing Shui and served the Qing Clan diligently.
"Is everything alright at home?" Qing Shui smiled and nodded.
With this short delay, other people in the family saw Qing Shui and all of them came out immediately. After all, it had been many years since Qing Shui had come back. A period of seven to eight years was considered quite long.
A familiar voice rang out and a girl came pouncing over.
"Lass Yu!" Yiye Jiange took the child from Qing Shui's hand and Qing Shui called out to the girl as he hugged her.
Qing Yu was now grown up, and looked quite like Huoyun Liu-Li with a hint of eccentricity. She turned toward Yiye Jiange, "Aunty, you've become even more beautiful."
"You're still as cheeky as ever. You're already grown up. Time passes by really quickly." Yiye Jiange reached out her hand to pat Qing Yu on the head.
"This little guy is really good-looking. Let me carry him." Qing Yu didn't continue to hug Qing Shui. After all, all of the others had come out by now and were already here.
When Qing Shui saw Qing Yi, he quickly walked over, "Mother, have you been well?"
When Qing Shui saw his mother, he felt especially happy. The many years hadn't left much traces on his mother's face. It was still like how it was before. This meant that she had been doing quite well for the past few years. Qing Shui heaved a sigh of relief.
"Mother has been well. It's really great that you're back. I'll get someone to inform your father and get him to come home earlier." When Qing Yi saw Qing Shui, she was very agitated.
"There's no hurry. This time around, I'll be staying home for a bit longer to spend some time with you." Qing Shui said happily.
"It's fine as long as everything is well for you. Your children have all grown up. As their father, you should have a good chat with them!" Qing Yi said happily, while pointing to her grandchildren who were at the side.
Qing Zun, Qing Yin, and Qing Ming have now grown a lot more and appeared more mature than before. This time around, their changes had been tremendous, especially for Qing Zun and Qing Ming.
Qing Zun gave off the feeling of being a warm and handsome young man. He exuded a warm smile along with a powerful Yang and righteous aura. Qing Shui wasn't surprised. Qing Zun had a powerful Nature Energy in him.
He had progressed steadily to reach Peak Martial Saint. With a quick glance, Qing Shui could tell their cultivation level. Qing Shui neither felt that Qing Zun's progress was fast nor slow.
It wasn't necessarily a good thing for one to progress too quickly. Of course, if one's state and foundation could keep up, then it would be a different story. However, this was hard to achieve and one would need to take his time to ensure that everything went well.
Qing Zun's abilities were very stable and this was due to his Nature Energy. His righteous power was very powerful and both of his state and foundation were more stable and powerful than his cultivation level.
Qing Shui nodded and pat Qing Zun on the shoulder, "Not bad."
"I'm still a far cry from how father had been." Qing Zun smiled. His eyes were filled with admiration for his father.
Every father is a hero in their children's heart.
"The difference between cultivation level is not something absolute. There are many cases where a person could kill someone of a higher cultivation level. Keep your mind in a steady state. Don't get lost in blindly striving to get to a higher cultivation level." Qing Shui said softly.
"I'll remember Father's teachings."
Qing Shui pat Qing Zun on the shoulder again then smiled and looked at Qing Yin. This daughter had grown into a great beauty with a mild and graceful aura. Her calmness was something that even Qing Zun couldn't compare against.
Qing Yin wrapped her arms around Qing Shui's neck happily. She sniffled a little and tears were about to fall from her eyes.
Qing Shui hugged her, "You're already grown up and it's time to find a husband. Why are you still such a crybaby?"
"I'm not going to look for a husband. Is Father planning to throw me out?" Qing Yin lifted her head and looked at Qing Shui.
Qing Shui was stumped and shook his head, "Alright, we'll do as you say. The guys here are really not a match for our Yin`er. We'll see how it goes when we meet someone suitable."
Qing Yin smiled and nodded.
Qing Yin was currently a Grade Ten Martial Saint and would reach Peak Martial Saint very soon. However, Qing Yin was the type who didn't like to compete with the others and surprisingly, the prowess of her battle techniques was even stronger. This might be a balance, as her speed and endurance were also especially strong.
When Qing Shui saw Qing Ming, he was still taken aback. This kid now seemed like a shadow even when he just stood there. It was just a feeling as there were no sounds or aura coming from him. Moreover, his Underworld King Energy seemed to have become a lot stronger than before. Qing Shui had no idea if this was good or bad news.
However, Qing Shui failed to detect any hidden dangers. He only felt that the Underworld King Energy seemed to be a little domineering.
