AST 2280 - Returning to Taiqing Immortal Palace, Fragrance Shack
Qing Shui eventually decided to go to the Taiqing Immortal Palace. Once he was at the Pure Domain, he could get anywhere in a short while.
With the keepsake of the Taiqing Immortal Palace, he could find anyone with ease and even received a warm welcome.
It wasn’t long before Qing Shui saw Young Master Tai flying here. As usual, he gave Qing Shui a bear hug, “Wow, you’re actually here to visit me. I’m simply overjoyed, I’ve been missing you to death.”
Qing Shui looked at the overreacting Young Master Tai and was still really happy seeing him as this man just didn’t disgust him, making him feel comfortable. Hence, he patted the young man, “Why have your tastes changed recently, starting to become interested in men?”
“Hell, don’t be so disgusting, let’s just go and have a good drink!” Young Master Tai wrapped his arm around Qing Shui’s shoulder, ushering him into his courtyard.
Qing Shui first went to visit Young Master Tai’s father and casually gifted him some tea and wine, causing the Taiqing Immortal Palace Master to be elated before going to Young Master Tai’s courtyard.
Tai Yijian saw Qing Shui and yelled with elation, “Godfather!”
Qing Shui saw this boy who had already turned into a charming youth.
Qing Shui happily rubbed on his head. “You have grown quite a bit.”
“Godfather, I’ve been stuck on the things that you taught me recently. I just can’t seem to break through.” Tai Yijian was both hardworking and exceptionally talented. He was also the hope of his generation, receiving the personal tutoring from the Tai Clan’s Old Ancestor.
“Try it once, I’ll take a look!” Qing Shui smiled and said.
Tai Yijian displayed the Taichi Fists, shocking Qing Shui as this little kid already had a deep understanding of using his strength, borrowing strength of the others and even had a very calm, boulder-like heart. He was truly a rare talent.
Qing Shui nodded as he watched, while Young Master Tai was also elated to see the pride of his life.
“Come, try and hit me!” Qing Shui told Tai Yijian.
Tai Yijian immediately rushed towards Qing Shui, displaying the Taichi Cloud Hands.
Qing Shui also used Taichi Fists, directly meeting him head-on, using the same amount of strength and speed, basically the same attributes except for the different levels of enlightenment.
With a single collision, both sides were knocked away. Tai Yijian’s face shone as his body moved, and he used a Taichi Single Whip straight towards Qing Shui.
Qing Shui was just receiving Tai Yijian’s strikes.
Tai Yijian completely let loose, being sent flying time and again, making him even more excited that such strength could display such power, especially since the amount of strength used was identical each time.
The fella was young, but he had a stubborn personality, constantly standing up and continuing, learning along the way and never falling down in the same way.
Only until he was panting crazily did Tai Yijian happily say, “Thank you, godfather. I’ve already thought it through and broken through, feels like everything makes so much sense now.”
Qing Shui gave him some Constitution Nurturing Pills as he needed to establish a strong foundation, while other medicines to directly increase strength were not good for him.
“Ole brother, you’ve probably come here on some business again, let me wager a guess.” Tai Yijian had left, so it was just the two of them drinking.
Qing Shui smiled, “Can’t you believe that I came specifically to see you?”
“It’s not impossible, but it’s probably a roadstop, or else you wouldn’t have come,” Young Master Tai chuckled and said.
“I came to deliver wine to Nalan Qing, so I wanted to bring you along,” Qing Shui smiled and replied.
“En, Beauty Qing is a real fairy. I wonder which lucky bastard would be so fortunate,” Young Master Tai said emotionally.
Qing Shui was stunned before he nodded his head. “Yeah, the red strings of fate tie lives together, an ordinary man cannot withstand this.”
“Hehe, no one dares to marry her. I told you already, her family clan is very prominent, while her previously dead husband’s clan is even stronger, so she’s basically fated to be single,” Young Master Tai said thirstily yet sadly.
“Let’s go take a look, I still need to rush back,” Qing Shui stood up and said.
“That soon?” Young Master Tai was gobsmacked.
“After a while, I’ll head to the Nine Continents Star Ocean Domain.” Qing Shui didn’t plan on hiding this, and maybe he could even obtain some useful information from him.
“Going to the Nine Continents Star Ocean Domain? I get it now. You were gonna enter there eventually, pity... I’m of no use there, I can’t even enter.” Young Master Tai was once again melancholic with this little brother around. Today, he found himself sighing with emotion more than ever.
“It’s not like I can’t return after leaving. We can still drink and if you want to go in the future, I’ll just bring you there.” Qing Shui smiled.
“Good, you have to put your money where your mouth is.” Young Master Tai’s eyes lit up.
“Of course, rest assured. Even if I don’t bring you there, Jian’er can definitely do so.” Qing Shui thought of Tai Yijian who had an inestimable future. He had a rare Dao Body which was suitable for Taichi, containing the mysteries of the Dao.
Young Master Tai’s eyes were glistening once again as he wouldn’t suspect Qing Shui of talking gibberish. He even had a fervent belief in them. Hearing these words made him unable to hold back his excitement; he pulled Qing Shui in for three more drinks before going to the Fragrance Shack.
The streets here were bustling, but the Fragrance Shack was still a peaceful place, giving Qing Shui a vague sense of discomfort and coldness which only amplified in that supreme beauty’s presence.
She had a very full body, but she wasn’t fat at all, especially her firm chest, raising her clothes up. Those kind of peaks were especially stimulating.
With a tall figure, her long, slender legs, she didn’t seem like a widow at all. And she technically wasn’t as she didn’t have the chance to consummate the marriage.
The most beautiful feature of her was the face and her pitch-black eyes; they were contrasting like the moon in the sky, just that her eyes were cold as if she was born to look down on the world.
A jade-white face, straight-nose, long, and jet black hair, giving her the feel of an educated master.
Seeing Qing Shui and Young Master Tai for the first time in over two years stunned her slightly, but she quickly remembered who these people were.
“Miss Qing, how are you!” Young Master Tai didn’t speak and Nalan Qing either, so Qing Shui had to break the ice.
“Please enter!” Nalan Qing said before turning and going back in.
Qing Shui was stunned; this woman was still the so-called ice beauty. Young Master Tai winked at Qing Shui which Qing Shui selectively ignored. Seeing the beautiful, tall person ahead of him, with her slender waist, beautiful arms and charming walk, everything exuded a fatal charm.
She was cold as usual but could rouse people’s souls. These two were seemingly contradictory, yet complementary. Not seeing her face would spark a fire in people, but seeing her face and hearing her speak would ground them in reality, making them ashamed of their inferiority, unable to think about anything strange. It wasn’t that she wasn’t beautiful, but that they weren’t worthy of her even in their own eyes.
