AST 1834 - Hard to find confidants, preparing to leave
Sunset Sea King Palace!
Qing Shui was currently living here, he returned right after Yin Tong’s child turned one month old. He had been staying at the Imperial Cuisine Hall for three months and delayed it for yet another month after the birth of Yin Tong’s child.
Yin Tong and Lan Lingfeng had already become powerful, but there was still much room to grow, as their strength was still rising rapidly. In this period, Qing Shui advised them to simply consolidate their foundations, without rushing or holding back.
Other than using medicinal pills to consolidate their foundations, Qing Shui proceeded to teach them fist arts to temper their bodily strength.
Even if they were Battle God Inheritors, Qing Shui still altered their course drastically, as their once-limited futures filled with hope.
Qing Shui recalled the burly man that he had cured in a month, shocking that Foolish Sage Inheritor to the core.
Even more unbelievable to him was his swift defeat at Qing Shui’s hand. He was beaten down in just three moves and Qing Shui was even standing still, he couldn’t hurt him one bit.
This was a severe blow to the burly man, as he felt that offering his strength as compensation for being cured was sufficient and believed himself to be decent.
However, his strength was not even worth mentioning in comparison to Qing Shui’s, who didn’t ask for anything, simply giving him advice and asking him to take care of the Imperial Cuisine Hall if it was convenient.
The burly man was naturally willing and though Qing Shui still didn’t know the man’s name, he trusted the reputation of the Foolish Sage Inheritor.
Qing Shui did not reveal his identity.
With the gradual merger of the Sunset Sea King Palace and the Easternpeak Dragonwolf Palace, they could be considered the local hegemons.
Qing Shui was still wary of being the tall tree that caught the wind, as being too high key was a double-edged sword and so he wanted the two palaces to slowly establish themselves as separate entities.
The Sunset Sea King Palace and Easternpeak Dragonwolf Palace were extremely lowkey and had yet to attract the attention of any powers, but it wouldn’t be long before such a peace was broken.
Qing Shui was getting restless, back at the Sunset Sea King Palace. Muyun Qingge knew the source of his troubles, but the other women were left puzzled as Qing Shui never spoke of this after his return.
It had already been eight months, the Vampiric Empress was about to give birth to a Sacred Demoness and he was still torn over whether he should visit or not. He had been delaying the decision as there was time left, but with the date drawing near, he had to make the call.
Qing Shui frustratedly left the Sunset Sea King Palace, observing the various undersea creatures, each of which would be gorgeous treasures in his past life, beautiful tiny demons…..
Qing Shui moved behind a massive rock in a flash.
“You do miss me quite a bit, coming here to observe me sneakily.” Qing Shui smiled as he looked at Muyun Qingge.
“Bah, who would miss you, I just pity you and came to comfort you.” Muyun Qingge returned the smile.
“Wow, comforting me and how do you propose you’re gonna do that?” Qing Shui licked his lips as he stared covetously at Muyun Qingge’s peaks. They held up her clothes, incomparably soothing to the eyes even barring the layer of clothing.
Muyun Qingge grew flustered by his gaze, but he refused to look away and she covered his eyes: “You can’t look at me like that.”
Qing Shui could see the hand in his face, but she wasn’t able to completely block his view, and Qing Shui could feel the natural charms she exuded as Drakainas. They were all stunning to begin with, able to entice others without doing much.
“You’re so beautiful, how could you be so shy.” Qing Shui teased this woman, whom he never fully understood.
The Sunset Palace Mistress was mature, but she still gave Qing Shui a strong impression, while Muyun Qingge was very ethereal, rarely coming into contact with Qing Shui and seemingly putting up an act as if she was not smitten with him at all…..
“I came with good intentions, but since you can still tease me, then it looks like you’re fine on your own.” Muyun Qingge retracted her hand, before backing off. She was about to leave.
“Don’t be like this, since you’re already here, let’s take a walk, I need you.” Qing Shui smiled as he pulled on her hand, dragging her along his walk.
They already had a thing going on before, but Muyun Qingge was sighing in her heart. She did not reject him and allowed him to pull her along. She was confused about her thoughts, neither accepting nor rejecting him.
“What do you think I should do?” Qing Shui held onto her hand tightly, as he said helplessly.
“Anything you do can be justified, just go with what your heart says.” Muyun Qingge lightly said.
“If you were in my shoes, what would you do?” Qing Shui veered off at the distance.
“Everyone has their own holy land, even a wicked sinner, who is beyond redemption, is no exception. I’m not you, I can’t act on your behalf.” Muyun Qingge shook her head.
“Wow, the little lass is preaching.” Qing Shui teased her and received a beating.
“Go, I know you want to go, or else you wouldn’t be this torn. Act however you please, as long as your conscience remains clean.” Muyun Qingge looked at Qing Shui sternly.
Qing Shui knew that any clear-headed person could see the truth. He wanted to go, or else he wouldn’t have been conflicted at all. Since this was the case, then he wanted to live a life without regrets regardless of the results.
Every man needed a confidant who knew him best, or it would be immensely regrettable. Qing Shui suddenly felt like he had found such a person in Muyun Qingge.
There was a saying in his previous life that men needed three women, a wife, a lover, and a confidant. From all of those, a confidant was the hardest to find. It wasn’t just heart-to-heart talks, but a true friend whom he could talk to about anything and everything. Strictly speaking, this was impossible for Qing Shui.
Hanging around the Sunset Sea King Palace for half a month, Qing Shui bade his farewells without explaining anything, only Muyun Qingge knew about it.
