AST 2025 - Triple Kill, Killed Song Zhong
“You have a toxic tongue. Believe it or not, I would strip your clothes off in front of everyone here,” Song Zhong’s eyes were extremely gruesome.
“Don’t you dare to mention that again,” At that moment, Qing Shui said calmly, his eyes glared at Song Zhong.
“Hahaha, young man. What are you pretending to be? Do you really think you are unrivaled here? I’m saying it again, I will strip this lady off, and I will do it here…”
Before he finished his words, Qing Shui dashed over.
Qing Shui’s hands were so fast that it was blurry, he was moving forward in an attacking motion. Song Zhong’s response was quick, but he knew he could not block Qing Shui’s attack. Thus, in a flash of a cold beam, he stabbed a short sword at Qing Shui’s chest.
Song Zhong underestimated Qing Shui’s speed and the power of Gorging Strike, this strike fell on his chest before his attack.
Song Zhong felt a blank in his mind, however, Qing Shui kicked his Dantian mercilessly at this moment. Next, Qing Shui turned around and hit his elbow on the opponent’s temple.
Song Zhong’s body fell to the ground and stopped breathing at once. Qing Shui did not like this person at all, this person was no good. Qing Shui wanted to stand at a prominent position in the Great Shang City, and this Song Zhong was the best target. Since he had the skill, he decided to try it on Song Zhong first.
Hence, Qing Shui killed him mercilessly. Though he knew it would be troublesome later, he did not regret it.
Qing Shui was too decisive in killing, his killing technique was too scary. It was a simple killer move. Qu Bai was frightened, he noticed that there was defense cancellation in Qing Shui’s moves. He could even strike the inner organs. Most importantly, the target had no space to fight back and seemed to have no defensive power. This was the most terrifying part.
Qing Shui’s killer move was special and obvious to some smart people. Without the Gorging Strike, the target could block his attack. After all, the target would not be killed in one move since the target could protect his or her most vital spot anyway. But once the target was hit with the Gorging Strike, the person could only wait for death.
Yu Xixuan did not expect Qing Shui to kill someone, but she had an unspoken feeling. Someone fought for her, there was a man who protected her. She liked this feeling, this vague feeling.
Qu Bai looked slightly pale, the men from the Qiao Clan and the Xicheng Clan too. They looked at Qing Shui as if they saw an incredibly scary monster. After all, a man at their level was killed in the blink of an eye.
Qing Shui’s move was a killing move, this was also his actual battle ability.
Qing Shui looked at Qu Bai and the rest, they were standing still. Qing Shui smiled and walked beside the two women, “We haven’t seen the environment here properly, there’s still time. Let’s go and check it out, shall we?”
The two women left with Qing Shui happily.
Qu Bai got terrified as he thought about the incident before. He just rubbed shoulders with the death. The men from the Xicheng Clan and Qiao Clan also drooled over Beiming Xue and Yu Xixuan before. If they had followed Song Zhong impulsively, they would have ended up like him.
This young man was way too scary, he hid it so well.
The entrance to the spiritual land opened. Qing Shui and the two women walked out. After that, Lei Bao and Wang Zhong came back too. They were respectful towards Qing Shui and appreciated him from the bottom of his heart.
At this time, the spiritual land was surrounded by a big crowd. However, the crowd was smaller than before. It seemed like many men were left in the spiritual land forever.
When they walked out, Qing Shui smiled at Beiming Xue, “Are you going back to the Northern Underworld Immortal Palace?”
Beiming Xue nodded to Qing Shui, “It’s already one month, I’m going home to have a look.”
“Elder Sister Xue, Qing Shui and I are in the Great Shang City. Come and visit us when you’re free. Qing Shui opened an Imperial Cuisine Hall in the Great Shang City. I also have a Jade Fragrant Restaurant nearby, it’s easy to find,” Yu Xixuan smiled.
“Okay, I will.”
Qing Shui and Yu Xixuan left and returned to the Great Shang City. They said farewell to Lei Bao and the rest since they were familiar people. Their relationships were rather far from being friends, but only Lei Bao and Wang Zhong knew their own thoughts.
Yu Xixuan was back at the Jade Fragrant Restaurant.
Qing Shui was back to the Imperial Cuisine Hall. The Barbarian Emperor, Lan Lingfeng, Qing Ci, Yin Tong, and others welcomed them. They were indeed happy to see Qing Shui returning safely.
Several men made a tableful of dishes and all of them enjoyed the feast together.
Talking about his rewards, Qing Shui did not hide them. He looked at the Barbarian Emperor, “Elder Brother, I have an inheritance which is suitable for you. I’m not sure if you’re interested, the inheritance of the Violent Axe Battle God.”
The Barbarian Emperor was excited, “Isn’t this too precious?”
Qing Shui smiled, “There’s no one more suitable than you. Moreover, we are brothers. I would definitely let you choose first unless you don’t like it or it’s not suitable for you. Precious or not, it doesn’t matter. It would be too formal to be courteous with family.”
Qing Shui gave the Barbarian Emperor the Battle Armor, Battle Axe, and the jade chest which was the Origin Essence of the Violent Axe Battle God inheritance. He left them to the Barbarian Emperor to absorb and become a Violent Axe Battle God Inheritor.
“Thirteen, since you’re my student, I’ll give you one item. Ci`er, there’s one for you too,” Qing Shui gave them two of the remaining Ice Burst Demonic Bears.
The Thirteenth Prince and Qing Ci had adequate strength, they were excited to have the Ice Burst Demonic Bears too. After all, the demonic bears were too powerful. By owning such a powerful demonic beast, their strength would increase by several folds.
Qing Shui gifted the only one left to Yin Tong. Lan Lingfeng had his own suitable demonic beast already. Though it was not as strong as the Ice Burst Demonic Bear, it gave twice the result by doing half of the effort when it was coupled with Lan Lingfeng.
Yin Tong had no demonic beast basically. So, Qing Shui prioritized Yin Tong.
It was settled now. The strength of the Imperial Cuisine Hall increased tremendously.
At least their position in the Great Shang City was stabilized. Even if Qing Shui were not around, it was fine for Qing Ci to be alone here. An Ice Burst Demonic Bear could guarantee her safety. Besides, Qing Ci’s strength was not bad, she had an impressive Art of Healing now. People needed her more than ever now, nobody dared to go against Qing Ci anymore.
Qing Ci took this master as her closest person in the world. He was the shoulder of both herself and her son. He gave her a new world, she could never repay his favor in this life.
The circle of the Great Shang City seemed to be changing gradually. It could also be said that the entire Northern Ice Domain was changing. All of these were caused by the presence of the tiny Imperial Cuisine Hall and Qing Shui.
The Xicheng Clan and Qiao Clan knew Qing Shui’s daunting power, they wouldn’t dare to act against him. However, Song Zhong’s death might make the Song Clan mad and come to him.
Would the Xicheng Clan and Qiao Clan spread the news about Qing Shui killing Song Zhong? Qing Shui reckoned that they would anyway, although it would be offending him and inviting troubles for their own Clans.
At the end of the day, the Song Clan knew eventually that Qing Shui killed their man. However, Qing Shui had no idea whether they were the ones who spread the news.
