AST 2237 - Relationship Confirmed, Intimate
"No matter what happens, I'll never let you leave my side."
Qing Shui's words rang out softly next to Beihuang Fan's ears. She wrapped her hands around Qing Shui's neck and lifted her head to look at him. Her beautiful eyes were like the brightest and most beautiful black gemstones, her long lashes exuding a great charm. Her beauty was astonishing and she looked at Qing Shui without blinking.
There was only a three-inch gap between them and so Qing Shui could clearly sense Beihuang Fan's fragrant exhaling that brushed his face. Her upright nose was right before him. However, Qing Shui was acting very proper now. He would like to kiss her, but he realized that he had lost the courage to do so.
This woman made him feel at a loss and a little hesitant.
Thinking of Beihuang Fan's words from earlier, as well as what he had said, there was a little change that had occurred to his mental state. If he didn't take another step forward, he might make her even sadder.
Qing Shui slowly got closer. He did so very, very slowly, giving time for Beihuang Fan to dodge.
However, even though Beihuang Fan's face flushed up, she didn't dodge. Her eyes narrowed slightly, her long lashes kept trembling. This showed that she wasn't feeling very calm.
He kissed those graceful lips, and the tender and fragrant feeling filled up his entire body. Qing Shui gently sucked and bit on her tender lips softly, his two hands embracing her tightly, making it such that there were no gaps between them.
The familiar pressure came from his chest with an astonishing bounce to them. Qing Shui's hand stroked her back gently, calming her down. He then skillfully pried open her teeth and quickly entered that sweet space, entangling with her tongue and sucking on it greedily.
Beihuang Fan's body trembled slightly. Qing Shui kissed while caressing her. His hands had a magical power even if he didn't perform the Soft-Tendon Hand Technique.
Right now, Beihuang Fan was only standing because Qing Shui was hugging her. Qing Shui let go of the lips from the panting Beihuang Fan, but his kiss landed on her nose, cheeks, eyes, and that tender neck. When Qing Shui sucked on her glistening earlobes, Beihuang Fan's body twitched and she hugged Qing Shui tightly. With the thing that had happened earlier, in addition to the last push at the back, Beihuang Fan exploded.
A faint and strange scent was sent out, and Qing Shui once again smelled this familiar aroma. It came the other time as well, but he didn't say anything. She really was a great piece of work. To think that she had such wonderful fragrance. This was Primordial Yin.
Her beautiful face was flushed red, and she rested in Qing Shui's chest, not daring to raise her head. She once again felt as if she were going to fly. She knew that this was a feeling that one could only get when a man and a woman were together. However, she had yet to become a true woman.
At the thought of this, she felt a little strange. Would there come a day where she'd live under one roof with a man?
Qing Shui didn't move anymore but just hugged her silently. He thought about a lot of things and there were times he didn't know if he was right. He had no idea why just like how it was now. Earlier on, the reason why Beihuang Fan was angry was because of a mental state, an attitude.
Right now, Qing Shui had made his attitude clear. It could be because his action of biting her earlier was too flippant. Until now, Qing Shui still felt a little in a trance.
Beihuang Fan raised her head and looked at Qing Shui, "Were you angry earlier?"
Qing Shui shook his head, "I wasn't. I just felt my heart aching. It was very upsetting to see you crying. I had wanted to treat you as my woman from a long time ago, that's why I treated you like that. I admit that I'm very frivolous, but I don't do this to every woman."
"You dare say that? What did you do to me on our first encounter? Don't tell me that you liked me since the first time we met?" Beihuang Fan was stunned.
"I was also very shocked the first time I met you. I'm very strange. I don't have a strong heart but when I saw you, I really liked you. I don't know why either." Qing Shui smiled awkwardly.
Beihuang Fan smiled and looked at Qing Shui. "I might have owed you in my previous life. I even suspected that I neither liked men nor women, as I've been in the Divine Connection Realm for very long, thinking that I won't ever have a breakthrough in this lifetime. Because, to attain a breakthrough I would require to fall in love with a guy. I've attained a breakthrough now. Are you happy?"
"I am. It's not because you've attained a breakthrough, but for having a beautiful woman like you falling in love with me." Qing Shui hugged her even tighter.
"I'm going to change my clothes. I don't feel very comfortable." Beihuang Fan said in a very soft voice.
"Then tell me, did you feel very good earlier?" Qing Shui smiled and said next to her ear.
"I'm not saying!" Beihuang Fan said, embarrassed.
"It smells very nice somewhere. Do you smell it?" Qing Shui said next to her ear softly.
"You aren't allowed to say it!"
"Then tell me if it felt good earlier. If you don't say, I'm going to touch." Qing Shui enjoyed this feeling. He knew that the burden in Beihuang Fan had been removed and their relationship was confirmed now. They were only short of a formality.
For existences like themselves, formality wasn't important. It was more important that they liked each other.
"I'll say it. You aren't allowed to move!" Beihuang Fan quickly said.
"It felt good..." Beihuang Fan's voice was like that of an insect next to Qing Shui's ears. However, the charm in her voice made Qing Shui numb all over.
Qing Shui now felt very amazing, having a great sense of achievement. He carried Beihuang Fan in his arms and spun a few rounds before placing her down.
The others left, and so did Beihuang Fan. She had attained a breakthrough and headed back to stabilize her realm. Another thing was that she wanted to continue to attempt further breakthroughs. She had been in the Divine Connection Realm for too long, and she would probably obtain a further breakthrough within a short period of time.
It was said that there had been someone who had reached ten caves before achieving breakthroughs to the greater realms thereafter. However, there were also people who managed to attain breakthroughs for the realms later after reaching one cave. If one wasn't willing to, they could forever stay at their current realm if they didn't intentionally try to break through to later realms.
This was the Heavenly Dao Realm, and the more caves one achieved at the Cave Realm, the stronger they would become when they achieved the later realms. It was the same for their foundation. Therefore, most people would stop there for a very long time and would continue to break through after reaching four caves. After all, the caves at the later phase were increasingly harder to achieve, and they couldn't possibly spend a large part of their lives onto them.
Qing Shui also needed to study the Cave Realm. This time around, the breakthrough came very suddenly. Moreover, there was one cave that was golden and the other two which weren't. The golden cave seemed a lot stronger than the other two.
In the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, Qing Shui looked at the three caves behind him. The mysterious caves had something like a vortex that was foggy and glistening, tempering Qing Shui's body and replenishing it with Origin Qi incessantly.
Qing Shui's body also seemed to be tempering the caves. However, he suddenly discovered that his Dantian was unlike how it was before. He hadn't noticed this previously. The Dantian was now also a cave.
This was a violet-golden cave...
The violet-golden cave had boiling violet molten lava, with violet electricity darting about. His Divine Weapon Flying Sword, the Emperor Qi's Pellet, the Five Elements Divine Flags, and the paragon vessel were all inside, receiving great nourishment.
Right now, Qing Shui had one more thing to cultivate—his caves. He was going to explore more caves. The fourth cave already had a structure and although it was very faint, it should be created very soon.
With each additional cave, one's strength would become a notch stronger. The number of caves also determined how strong one would be in the future. Usually, the more the caves, the further one could progress in the future.
