AST 2209 - Outstanding Beauty, Widow Qing, Asked for Wine Recipe
Young Master Tai led the way to this Fragrance Shack. The entrance was rather small, about three meters tall. Both doors were about three meters wide. It was considered a small entrance in the Main Continent.
After entering, they realized that the place was fine-looking. The buildings here did not have many floors. Most of them only had one story. However, it was still very spacious. If it was in the past life, Qing Shui would not dare to stay alone in such a spacious place.
There were many things in the compound, including many ingredients used to make wine. There were also flower petals. Qing Shui also saw a garden far away.
Just when Qing Shui was looking around, a woman walked over from afar.
Although Qing Shui heard from Young Master Tai that this woman was very pretty, he was still perplexed. She seemed to be a young married lady. This was the impression that she gave people from the first sight. It was not from the physical appearance, but her natural flirtatious aura.
Her body was no different from a teenage girl, but she was still relatively adequate in the right areas, especially her round and perky chest which stretched her clothes out. The solid shape was so prominent, the tall and round bamboo-shoots type of shape was extremely impactful.
Her body was tall and lean, slightly taller than 1.7 meters. Her legs were straight and slim. There were no traces of her being a married woman at all. The most beautiful part was her face; her dark eyes were like sparkling stars and moon. Yet, these eyes were very cold. It came from the indifference from within her soul.
Her face was as pale as jade, her nose was tall and straight; her dark and long hair was tied up simply, giving out a learned and rational vibe.
“Miss Qing, this friend of mine wants to see the wine,” Young Master Tai said humbly.
Qing Shui had bewildered feeling; he did not expect Young Master Tai to be so low profile in front of a woman.
“Hmm, have a look then,” The woman left right after talking; she did not even once look at Qing Shui.
Her voice was magnetic and melodious; it was nice to hear but oppressing, making people feel unable to stand up straight while facing her.
It had been ages since Qing Shui had been ignored like this. He was thinking about how to address her previously but she did not even acknowledge him.
Qing Shui did not get mad, but anyone else would not feel great being neglected.
Young Master Tai smiled looking at Qing Shui’s face. “Don’t make such a face. You are not handsome so that is normal.”
“I’m more handsome than you, at least,” Qing Shui said.
“What, how could you say that? I don’t mean to belittle you, but if we’re speaking of looks, you are definitely two grades lower than me,” Young Master Tai said while touching his own face.
Qing Shui looked at this big guy before finally giving up. Young Master Tai was indeed handsome, but his good appearance was far behind his narcissism.
“Oh yeah, did you come here to just look around?” Young Master Tai asked.
“I’m here to get the wine recipe, but I don’t harbor any hope after seeing her,” Qing Shui replied.
“Recipes. Usually, they won’t give them to others, unless the offer is exceptionally good.”
“I can offer something that she could be interested in, but she probably won’t give me the chance. Did this woman suffer through something in her life? She seems to hate this world.”
“The entire family of her husband was killed on her wedding night, leaving her alone. Not only that, it was said that someone had left a message, saying that if she marries anyone, his entire family will die.”
“It’s surprising that something like this happens. It seems like someone wants to marry her and doesn’t want anyone else to get her.”
“But no one showed up. No one got close to her so this woman has never been close to anyone up till now.”
“Do you know the strength of this woman?”
“Her? Maybe Xiantian level.”
Qing Shui shook his head, “She is very strong. Maybe even stronger than me. By the way, when was it that her in-laws were killed?”
“Fifty years ago.”
This woman was still young, not much older than Qing Shui. She should be around Beihuang Fan’s age. However, what was her strength fifty years ago? Did she only improve her strength after all those years?
“Did she not fight and kill at that time?” Qing Shui asked.
“She did, but the opponent was strong and she was weak. Yet, the opponent did not kill her or harm her,” Young Master Tai said.
Qing Shui felt muddle-headed now, but he stopped thinking. Perhaps, Nalan Qing had obtained the ability to take revenge. Besides, it was none of his business to care.
Both of them looked around casually. Qing Shui looked at the raw materials. Wine mainly depended on its recipe. Without the recipe, given all the ingredients, you could not produce the same wine.
“Let’s go and find her and see if we can exchange for the wine recipe,” Qing Shui thought and said.
Young Master Tai smiled bitterly, but he still headed along with Qing Shui to meet the woman.
At this moment, the woman was staring blankly at a flower bush.
The person was more beautiful than the flowers, but she was cold. Qing Shui knew this was not simply that but the result of a tough and strong soul. It was as if a man saw a beautiful tiger but dared not to step forward. That was a kind of fear from the bottom of the heart, but it was also kind of admiration.
“I want your wine recipe,” Qing Shui directly told the woman.
Young Master Tai rubbed his head. Could there really be someone as straightforward as him? Who would give it to you when spoken to like that, lest they were fools?
“Reason!” The woman turned around. This was her first time meeting someone so straightforward. This person was either a fool or a wise man. He should not be a fool. Though he was with the Young Master Tai, he should not be a fool…
Young Master Tai would probably bang the wall if he found out about the woman’s thoughts.
“I can exchange it for something. Maybe I can offer you some wine,” Qing Shui thought for a bit and said.
The woman frowned in return.
“No worries, my wine is not worse than yours. I just want to make several types of wine. Your wine takes time to age. I can increase the wine’s age quickly. The duration can be shortened by several times!” Qing Shui possessed the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal. More importantly, he also had the Treasure Basin and the Hundred Treasure Chest. With that, he could double it up twice.
Qing Shui finished his lines and took out a small bottle of Plum Blossom Wine. It was only a small bottle, about 250ml. It was very delicate and plain. Then, he took out a white porcelain glass. He filled half of the glass and gave it to the woman saying, “See if it is to your liking.”
Young Master Tai was intrigued the second the wine was opened. The aroma was one grade better than the Fragrance Wine. One would feel refreshed by just smelling it.
Besides, this was the first time Young Master Tai saw this woman accepting the wine glass from a man. She took a little sip, though her expression seemed to have remained the same, there were slight changes. That surprise was spreading like a ripple.
“You made this wine? It has been kept for at least 10,000 years. If it is stored as usual, you would need at least 10,000 years to reach this quality,” The woman still sounded oppressing, but it was charming. It was magnetic and knowledgeable.
“How about I exchange this wine recipe with yours?” Qing Shui proposed with a smile.
“I can’t make this wine even if you give me this recipe. You should be the only one who owns this plum blossom. The normal plum blossom doesn’t have this kind of chilling and lofty nature. I can’t reach this age as well,” Nalan Qing seemed to have studied the wine well. She hardly spoke so much to a man like this.
“How can I exchange for your wine recipe then?” Qing Shui looked at her and asked.
“You have such a nice thing and you’re interested in my wine recipe?” The woman was confused.
