AST 1787 - Qing Shui's Women and Children
"Father!" Qing Ming smiled and called out.
"Not bad. You're reached a bottleneck now, but as long as you can break through it, you'll enjoy a long period of rapid and smooth-sailing progressing thereafter." Qing Shui pat him on the shoulder.
When Qing Shui came back the last time, he had helped them. The strongest Qing Zun and a few others were only at Early Martial Saint. However, they were now at Peak Martial Saint and would soon attain a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor level.
"Yan`er!" Qing Shui took his daughter's hand.
This lass had grown up into a lady as well. She was a quiet girl of few words and her aptitude weren't bad. However, she wasn't considered any kind of rare talent.
She didn't like to fight and gave off a quiet feeling, as if she wasn't that interested in anything at all. This was the daughter which Qing Shui worried the most for. It was because seeing her would make one feel a little heavy-hearted, as if feeling that she wasn't happy.
"Father!" Qing Yan smiled and called out to Qing Shui. She was smiling and it was a smile that came right from her heart. She was truly happy to be able to see Qing Shui. However, there still seemed to be a hint of worry on her face.
"Our lass has also grown up now. Tell Father, do you have anyone you like?" Qing Shui wasn't just asking casually. He wanted to see how this daughter of his would react.
Qing Yan was stunned for a moment before she blushed and quickly shook her head, "No, no."
Qing Shui was surprised to see how obvious his daughter's reaction was. She was grown up and her reaction caused Qing Shui to be stumped. He had no idea if she was blushing because she felt shy or if he had hit the bullseye.
"Alright, alright, if you say there's none, then there's none. But if there's really someone, you must definitely tell me, alright? I'll help to give you some advice. Your Father likes whoever you choose. Alright?" Qing Shui knew that no matter what the truth was, he mustn't asked any further.
"Mmm, thank you Father."
"Come, this is for you." Qing Shui took out a few brushes, a zither, as well as some exquisite drawing paper.
Qing Shui had specially prepared these items. When he knew that he was coming back, he had prepared some gifts for them in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
"Father, I want them too. You can't be biased." Qing Yu reached out her hands.
"Oh? Is our Yu`er able to draw as well?" Qing Shui brought out some more as he spoke. Of course he had prepared some for Qing Yin and the others as well. However, if they didn't like drawing, then he won't have anything else for them.
There was also Qing Yun, Yun Duan's and Qing Shui's daughter. She had quite little interaction with Qing Shui and he had given her very little impression of him. It was still the same now.
Qing Yun had grown up as well. Regardless what personalities these children have, they all held their father in great admiration. Their mothers had told them a lot about their father. He was a legend, a powerful existence.
"Later on, Father will teach you a set of Cloud Steps that's suitable for you. What do you think?" When Qing Shui sensed the aura coming from his daughter, he suddenly thought of this.
The Cloud Steps had evolved from the Nine Palace Steps and was something which Qing Shui hadn't been using. It could also be called the Nine Palace Steps, one that was for females. Therefore, Qing Shui planned to teach this to the children.
It was because in comparison, the Cloud Steps was a slightly simple but it still held a great essence. If one reached a high level of proficiency in the Cloud Steps in the future, they could change it into the the complicated Nine Palace Steps that had an even greater effect that the current Nine Palace Steps.
Qing Shui pat her head and then squat down, "Jun`er, did you miss Father?"
"I did, a lot!" Qing Jun spoke using ventriloquism.
Qing Jun was the daughter who Yehuang Guwu had adopted. She was born to be unable to speak but Qing Shui now had the ability to cure her. Qing Shui's five element forces and cultivation were very powerful. He could also use his Force of Rebirth and Life and Death Needles to heal her now.
"This time around, Father will be able to treat you and let you speak with your mouth." Qing Shui smiled and said.
"I'm already used to it. It's fine like this." Qing Jun gave it some thought and said.
"I want to hear you use your voice to call me Father." Qing Shui rubbed her head. When he squat down, he would need to raise his head to be able to speak to Qing Jun.
Qing Teng, Qing Nuo, Qing Long...
After having not seen him for a few years, Qing Long now looked very different. His figure was more slender, appeared less headstrong, and his pair of bright eyes made him appear quite handsome. He was over ten years old and had changed a lot. With Zhu Qing's and his own genes, how ugly could their child be? It was just that when he was younger, he didn't appear as exquisite looking as the others.
Luan Luan and Yuchang weren't at home. Yehuang Guwu had previously said that they were at the Lotus Sect.
Di Chen, Di Qing, Hai Dongqing, and Wenren Wu-shuang were all considered members of the Lotus Sect and would spend most of their time there. His women had split up into different groups, not so that they could pit against each other, but that they were each doing their own things. In Qing Shui's previous life, this would be considered their career.
Canghai Mingyue, Huoyun Liu-Li, Yun Duan, Zhu Qing, Mingyue Gelou, and Shi Qingzhuang had their own trade association. It had now developed quite well and was considered one of the biggest trade association in the area.
Yu Ruyan, Tantai Xuan were at the Putuo Mountain, but they would come to the Qing Clan a few times each year.
Yehuang Guwu stayed behind to watch over the Qing Clan while Yuan Su watched over the Imperial Cuisine Hall.
Yu He and Mu Qing were at the Hundred Flowers Valley.
The Eldest Princess, Qing Sha, and Yan Jinyu were at the Heaven Secrets Academy, and their reputation there were soaring.
Tantai Lingyan and Qin Qing should be at the Demon Lord Palace.
Yiye Jiange, Muyun Qingge, Luo Qingcheng, and Qing Hanye managed the Sunset Sea King Palace.
Thinking of this, Qing Shui realized that he already had quite a number of women. Right now, only Yehuang Guwu and Yuan Su were at home. The ladies who managed the trade association would come back more often. Although they might not be able to return everyday, they would stay for a day every two to three days.
Now that Qing Shui was back, they had to be informed to come back. There were also other members of the Qing Clan, including Qing Bei, Qing You, Qing Hui, Qing Hu, Qing Zi, and many others, who helped out with the management of the trade association.
Qing Shui's children were more free to do as they wished, but they spent more time back at home. Yehuang Guwu would guide them in their cultivation. After all, she was the strongest.
Qing Shui hugged Yehuang Guwu. He did the same for Yuan Su as well. Although he had yet to won over this lady, she was destined to be his. Therefore, he showed some skinship very naturally.
Moreover, everyone in Qing Clan had already treated her as Qing Shui's woman, and all of his children called her Aunty. Her name in the Imperial Cuisine Hall was also well known. Everyone knew her as the Miraculous Physician Goddess.
Qing Shui felt that he was the happiest person. With a wife like this, what more could a husband ask for?
Moreover, he didn't only had one wife!
Yehuang Guwu stood next to Yiye Jiange and was talking with Qing Yi and the others. When Yehuang Guwu and Yiye Jiange stood next to each other, one of them appeared ethereal while the other intoxicating. This gave Qing Shui an atrocious thought of wanting to bring them both onto the same bed...
The first one to return were Huoyun Liu-Li, Shi Qingzhuang, Mingyue Gelou, Zhu Qing, and Canghai Mingyue. Their appearance made Qing Shui a little agitated. Having not seen them for so many years, that feeling was indescribable.
"Qing Shui!" Huoyun Liu-Li pounced into Qing Shui's arms.
