AST 1846 - Saintly Demon Girl Qing Xuan
After the quarrel just now, Qing Shui was starting to feel much better. This world was truly wondrous. Why bother about such small things? If he really cared, then what would he make of Muyun Qingge and Luo Qingcheng?
Using his previous worlds’ standards, they would be considered demon spirits. They were the textbook definition of beauty and the greatest desire of men. Demon Spirits and regular demons were different in that one was beautiful beyond comparison, and the other was indescribably ugly.
Qing Shui sat there doing nothing for ten days. Many Vampiric Demonesses passed by but he did not detect the Vampiric Demoness Empress’ aura.
Although she didn’t appear, Qing Shui knew that it was just easy for her to find out what he had been doing. And since she was about to give birth soon, not coming out was normal.
It was only till the afternoon did a Vampiric Demoness appear before Qing Shui, “The Empress wants you to go in.”
Qing Shui nodded his head, as he followed this Vampiric Demoness into the valley. Going up the natural stairs of the tallest tree in the valley, walking from treetop to treetop, the lush green environment made him feel as if he had entered a kingdom of illusions.
The further they went, the cleaner it was. Yet, it was very long before they saw another Vampiric Demoness, seemingly on sentry duty. Much different from the other Vampiric Demonesses outside, they had very tidy clothing, with a very natural pair of wings sprouting out, not at all reducing their beauty.
Of all the Vampiric Demonesses, it was only the Vampiric Demoness Empress who did not have wings and was identical to humans, the only difference being that she was too beautiful and alluring. Yet, she had a cold personality, making her fatally attractive.
Qing Shui did not know if he had fancied the ideas of Demon Spirits. Perhaps he had thought of such things back in his previous life but back then, they were only mythical creatures.
Now, in the World of the Nine Continents, experts who wished to see Demon spirits wouldn’t find it hard at all. At Qing Shui’s level, he could interact with many different races at different locations.
“The empress wants you to enter by yourself.” The female demon said before leaving.
This was a wooden pavilion, without any doors. He needed to take a long detour before he could enter the main hall. Seeing this marvelous architecture, Qing Shui recalled that he had a similar ability amongst his awakened skills. However, he never tried using it, leaving it a complete waste.
Stepping on the slippery wooden surface, Qing Shui observed the area.
There were a few decorative plants with lush green leaves, so shiny that they almost looked fake. Qing Shui was sure that they were live plants.
The sounds of a baby wailing resounded and Qing Shui stunned, “She’s given birth!”
Qing Shui knew that him being invited in was a sign of the baby’s birth but he was still inexplicably surprised when he heard that cry.
He stopped frolicking around and directly charging in. It was a large pavilion, with one room following the next. Each had windows, growing trees within with the air fresh and clean.
Having passed by three rooms and entering the fourth, he noticed that this room was smaller, neater and cleaner without any plants within. It a snow-white bed and a snow-white blanket.
Qing Shui recalled her blood red dress, not expecting her entire bed to be pure white. He assumed that she liked red, but now he wasn’t quite sure.
Qing Shui immediately spotted the Vampiric Demoness Empress. She was carrying a small baby wrapped in her arms as she raised her head to look at Qing Shui, subtly smiling.
She had a holy glow about her, the glow of a mother, which caused Qing Shui to think of Tantai Lingyan, and how she might become like this in the future.
Qing Shui smiled and walked over and sat beside her, seeing the little girl in the wrap. The Vampiric Demoness Empress could only give birth to females, and under normal circumstances, only once in her lifetime.
Although the baby was only a day old, it had jade white skin, a pair of dark pearl-like eyes, seemingly able to gaze at people and taking a serious look at Qing Shui.
In his previous world, those who could not afford to raise children would send them away to be raised by others, typically before they opened their eyes. Once a baby saw its mother, the mother would not be willing to give them away.
Qing Shui could feel a strong, holy aura coming from the baby. A Sacred Demoness. His daughter was a Sacred Demoness, a terrifyingly powerful existence in the future. However, in his eyes, she would only be his daughter.
“The little lass takes after me.” Qing Shui raised her head and told the Vampiric Demoness Empress.
“Just look at her hair, her facial features, and her small nose. They’re just like mine.” Qing Shui chuckled merrily.
“Are you saying my nose is crooked?” The Vampiric Demoness Empress pouted. Qing Shui might have talked a lot of nonsense, but the lass did look slightly like him with the soft Yin energy between her brows.
“Let me hold her.” Qing Shui asked.
“You clumsy fool, be careful.” The Vampiric Demoness Empress didn’t think much before passing her to Qing Shui.
“I have done this quite often.” Qing Shui carefully received her.
“As expected of someone who has many wives and children.” The Vampiric Demoness Empress chuckled.
“What’s the little lass’ name?” Qing Shui changed the topic, as there would be little value in continuing.
“I haven’t given her a name yet. How about you give her one?” She said to Qing Shui.
“Should she take your surname or mine?”
“She can take yours since you’re already here.” The Vampiric Demoness Empress smiled.
“What’s your name? I’d like to think of a good name.” Qing Shui suddenly realized that he hadn’t even got her name yet.
“I don’t have a name.” The Vampiric Demoness Empress naturally said.
“You don’t?” Qing Shui looked at her disbelievingly.
“Vampiric Demoness Empress, Vampiric Demoness, we all don’t have names, just little nicknames for each other. I’m the empress so I don’t need a nickname.” She smiled at Qing Shui and explained.
“If that’s the case then how do I address you, the mother of the child?”
The Vampiric Demoness Empress soothingly said: “It’s fine, it’s fine. Just give her a name.”
“We’ll call her Qing Xuan then!” Qing Shui thought of this name, but it wasn’t exactly an original idea. There was a legendary goddess in his previous world known as Xuan.
Mysterious amongst mysteries, marvellous beyond compare!
“I like this name.” The Vampiric Demoness Empress was elated, which also made Qing Shui joyful.
