AST 1935 - Daunting Strength and Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda
Qing Shui was rather satisfied with his current strength and despite losing some part of the Immortal Dao Divine Origin, it was not a total waste. Previously, he could only rely on his own powerful defensive power and resilience, but now he apparently needed them no more. His current strength was daunting enough.
Qing Shui was pleased to have the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda. Before this, only less than 30 million Dao Force could be blocked. Now, literally 200 million Dao Force could be mitigated. Coupled with his 300 million defense power, Qing Shui was an invincible man now.
At this moment, the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda came in handy with its powerful effect; almost overturning the world.
Absorbing the powerful energy in his body, it was like a penniless beggar who became a wealthy man overnight. The feeling of the transformation was amazing. In fact, Qing Shui felt even greater than the situation above.
Qi flowed throughout his body and moved swiftly like a dragon. Qing Shui flashed freely across the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal. He moved rapidly up and down, leaving traces of his shadow. His hands waved and performed the Taichi Fist, Ancient God Thirteen Steps, Saintly Hands, and so on.
The precious trait of the Immortal Dao Divine Origin was its ability to strengthen one’s foundation. Hence, Qing Shui didn’t need to worry about his realm. Qing Shui’s realm remained but it was sufficient; he could perform optimally with his current strength now.
“I don't have to be so careful as before anymore,” Qing Shui said while putting up the happiest smile.
Three years of living in seclusion, or maybe not seclusion, Qing Shui had been independent of any force. The outstanding Art of Healing from the Imperial Cuisine Hall had spread further now. In these three years, Qing Shui wasted most of his time on Art of Healing. Since he intended to become the Imperial Doctor, he certainly needed to raise his reputation.
There were many Imperial Doctors and Immortal Doctors, but they were nothing. Most importantly, Qing Shui could treat anyone without being tied to any forces. He would not request payment for treating or saving people, especially for the capable ones. Instead, he would use another way, such as asking for a favor or assistance.
The stronger a warrior was, the more he appreciated his life. After all, his life and death alone could change the entire family’s condition. It was common for a warrior to be injured; thus, nobody could guarantee to live without any illnesses and disasters. In this case, Qing Shui as the Imperial Doctor would play a very essential role.
Even if someone wanted to go against the Imperial Cuisine Hall and Qing Shui, a lot of people would disagree, this was also the ability of a successful doctor.
After staying for a moment, it was almost time, so Qing Shui left the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal!
It appeared to be still early outside, but it was already bright. However, it felt like cloudy days all the time in Linhai City. Stepping out of the room, Qing Shui bumped into Tantai Lingyan.
“Morning!” Qing Shui greeted with a smile.
Tantai Lingyan looked at Qing Shui in astonishment. In just one night, this man seemed to change a little. In fact, there was a major transformation. Now, Qing Shui appeared more mature. Though he still looked young and his eyes were still bright, it was slightly peculiar and enticing. However, there was a sense of maturity, very prominent maturity.
“Mm, morning, why do you look strange today,” Tantai Lingyan said with a smile.
Within three years, Qing Shui was close to this woman, but they had yet to become an actual husband and wife. Putting aside the incident when they first met, it never happened again over these years, the furthest they had been was kissing.
Qing Shui was speechless about himself, he owed everything to his superb self-control after all. However, he was ashamed of this excuse…
“Really, Little Yan Yan,” Qing Shui stared at this remarkable beauty while wetting his lips.
Tantai Lingyan knocked on Qing Shui's head, “I noticed no change.”
Qing Shui was unsure of his personality, he was a nobleman and just person on the outside. More importantly, he was a steady man. However, he acted differently in front of his woman and was exceptionally shameless in front of Tantai Lingyan.
He did not acknowledge himself as a baffled person, but he indeed had a strong ego and little endurance. As his strength increased, his women would admire his endurance very much. Since his women were all outstanding, Qing Shui gained his confidence as well.
It was true when people said ‘one would be more shameless, confident and forgiving when he had greater strength.’ Everything depended mainly on strength nowadays and the dexterity would be enhanced as the strength improved. Therefore, everything would be more efficient.
“Mm, Qing Shui, let’s practice some sword skills,” Tantai Lingyan continued.
It was not the first time Qing Shui accompanied her during the sword practice. Qing Shui smiled in joy and it made Tantai Lingyan blush. Qing Shui then grabbed Tantai Lingyan and disappeared in the corner of the yard.
Nine Continents Steps!
It was a beautiful valley and also a place he used to visit frequently.
The valley was moderate in size, but since the boundary was easily visible, they could see very far with their sharp eyesight. There were plenty of green grass and bushes which were dense and short like a trimmed lawn; they were so thick that one could step on them. Around the area, there were only a few trees, not very tall, scattering over the area.
There was a clear and small lake in the middle. Several birds were drinking by the lake; at times, some dainty beasts appeared too.
The weather was fine and unlike Linhai City, it was very bright here. The clothes billowed in the gentle breeze. Looking at the pretty woman by his side who was holding a sword, Qing Shui felt like she was almost blown away with her fluttering long cuff.
“Let’s begin!” Tantai Lingyan smiled while raising the Angelic Sword in her hands slightly.
Qing Shui nodded, his hands became crystal clear.
“Mm, you’re not using any weapon?” Tantai Lingyan experienced a massive breakthrough in three years, her Glacier Divine Sword’s current attacking power exceeded 3 million Dao Force.
Only Tantai Lingyan could practice the Glacier Divine Sword up to this level. Moreover, she only took such a short period to master it.
This was Tantai Lingyan’s improvement and transformation within three years. She was also one of those who improved greatly among the rest.
“I refined the Immortal Dao Divine Origin,” Qing Shui did not explain further.
Tantai Lingyan pondered and startled. After all, Qing Shui had not refined it for three years and suddenly he said that he had done it today. Nevertheless, she was delighted. The sword in her hand stabbed towards Qing Shui with a hint of coldness.
The temperature plummeted instantly to the freezing point. The air was so cold to the extent of freezing a water droplet. However, it did not freeze the grass on the lawn to death. This was a result of Qi refinement up to a certain level.
Mystic Ice Seal!
A three feet long, icy cold Qi spurted out from the sword in Tantai Lingyan’s hand. It came across the air following her amazing and graceful body motions. She moved swiftly and fleet like a shadow. The Angelic Sword painted the air with the traces of Qi at once.
