AST 2376 - Crushing, Chaotic Battle, Ancient Blue Topaz Leopard
The Peach Blossom City's City Lord was trying to pass things off. He had no idea if there was any use bringing up his father at this moment. Earlier on, he had said that he would kill said person and crush him into ashes. He did not expect that the same would be done to him by Qing Shui. Either way, he knew that it wouldn’t be easy for him to be able to leave this place alive today.
"Brother, there are more benefits of having more friends. I didn't know any better earlier on. What must I do for you to let me off? I'll agree to any conditions that you may have." The City Lord didn't wish to die. He was in his prime, was strong, and was also a City Lord. He had great wealth, countless beautiful wives, and concubines. He didn't wish to die so soon.
"You must die today. I don't wish to become friends with trash like you." Qing Shui shook his head.
"You're the one who forced me to do this. Everyone, attack together! We'll only be able to live after killing them," The City Lord suddenly shouted. At the same time, his body seemed as if it had exploded, instantly sending peach blossom powder pollen everywhere.
Qing Shui closed his eyes and grabbed the City Lord with the Dragon-capturing Hands. At the same time, he controlled the Divine Battle Puppet to dash out toward the people the City Lord had brought along with him.
With the reinforcements from Qing Shui's Battle God Halo and formations, in addition to the opponents being weakened, the Divine Battle Puppet was like a killing machine, charging straight toward those people.
Priest Purewood and the others made their moves as well. Some of the other people who were implicated also joined in. Moreover, the other side was from the Forsaken Heaven Region. This was the Demon King Domain. In addition to how the Peach Blossom City's City Lord had been so domineering, many people didn't like the way he acted. After all, this wasn't the Peach Blossom City.
Earlier on, Qing Shui had said that the God Killing Pill was something that the Peach Blossom City's City Lord had gotten someone else to refine. What he was trying to say was that this medicinal pill wasn't strong enough. It didn’t mean that the God Killing Pill wasn't strong, but rather the Alchemist who refined the medicinal pill wasn't strong enough. Therefore, Qing Shui was able to neutralize this poison.
The Peach Blossom City's City Lord charged out toward Qing Shui. This was a battle in which he had to give it his all, dealing lethal moves every single time. Qing Shui's Berserk Dragon Fist was slightly at a disadvantage.
The Peach Blossom City's City Lord spurted blood from the strike. Once he managed to close their distance, it would be high time to send the City Lord on his way. Therefore, Qing Shui struck out a Stellar Transposition without pulling back. His defense at full force was around ten trillion. For such an attack that could neglect the other party's defense to hit the weakened Peach Blossom City's City Lord, the latter could only be on his last breath.
His internal organs were practically crushed. This attack was too devastating. The Peach Blossom City's City Lord was almost shocked out of his wits. He couldn't believe that Qing Shui could unleash such a lethal attack so easily. It was a destructive blow.
The Peach Blossom City's City Lord naturally couldn't die in peace. Qing Shui had no time to consider if he could die in peace. He charged toward the enemies, causing a huge upheaval. The battle quickly reached the end later.
Quite a number from their side had been injured and Qing Shui helped to save them. Other than that, it was a complete victory for them, primarily thanks to Priest Purewood, the Divine Battle Puppet, as well as Qing Shui's demonic beasts such as the Dragon Slaying Beast and the few Black Ice Divine Worms.
The Black Ice Divine Worms were very useful during the battle. The killing prowess of extremely poisonous creatures was too terrifying, especially the Black Ice Divine Worms that Qing Shui had nurtured since they were young. Their strength and poison were so strong that it would make one's scalp turn numb. More than half of the enemies had been killed solely by the Black Ice Divine Worms.
The great prowess that Qing Shui had displayed were seen by all, including the Fire Nation's Demon Gate. However, the Goldfinger Fowl Demon King was already dead and by now, the people from the Demon Gate already knew who had killed him. Earlier on, they only knew that their sect leader had died, but wasn't sure who had killed him. They knew by now that it was definitely this young man.
The remaining members of the Demon Gate didn't think of exacting revenge but were more inclined to leave quietly. Otherwise, their only way out would be to die. The difference in their strengths was too great.
After returning to the place they had set up camp previously, the time for their morning regime had already ended. People who were preparing food were already on it. After all, they would have to go deeper in from now on. If things turned out to be dangerous, it would be a while before they would be able to grab a bite.
Qing Shui made some food and helped the two ladies neutralize the God Killing Pills. The degree of the God Killing Pills given to the two ladies was weaker, at least two notches weaker than the one that Qing Shui took. Therefore, it didn't take long for Qing Shui to neutralize the poison.
"Brother, look, that beauty has been looking at you all this while," Hao Tian spoke to Qing Shui.
Since Qing Shui made food, the others from the Divine Palace naturally ate here as well. After all, everyone here knew that Qing Shui's meals were great delicacies.
The people that Nalan Qing brought along didn't eat together with Qing Shui, but they were somewhere nearby.
Qing Shui knew that Nalan Qing was looking at him. He knew that this lady was feeling a little lost.
She didn't expect that Qing Shui would be so strong, so much so that she felt that he was a little distant. She suddenly felt that this man was very far away from her and when she saw Qing Shui looking over, she smiled out of embarrassment.
When the beauty smiled, it wasn't overboard to say that her beauty could cause the fall of countries and cities. Nalan Qing's beauty was really that great.
"Come on, teach me. Why do they all like you? Other than my cultivation, how am I any worse off compared to you?" Hao Tian said gloomily.
Both Qing Shui and Hao Tian got along quite well. Qing Shui liked his character. Hao Tian was very humorous and a little preposterous.
"This is something that can't be taught. It's the matter of one's looks." Qing Shui smiled. They were back to discussing this issue that they had already talked about in the past.
Hearing Qing Shui's words, Hao Tian decided to not press further.
Qing Shui invited Priest Purewood to join him for the meal, but after rejecting for a few times, he couldn't get past Qing Shui's insistence and thus also joined them for the meal. He was all praises for Qing Shui's culinary skills.
Qing Shui wasn't selfish and gave Priest Purewood some spices for personal use. In any case, he had too many of these things in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, much more than he could finish. The ones he set aside were meant to be given away to others. To some people, these things were priceless. After all, there were people who were fond of wine, some who were fond of women, and some who were fond of delicacies. There weren't any conflicts in these. There were people who were fond of all three.
Priest Purewood was alright with wine. It wasn't as if he was particularly fond of it that much. Instead, he enjoyed delicacies and was especially lucky on this occasion. Moreover, Priest Purewood said that it was his greatest takeaway to get to know Qing Shui in this trip to the divine area this time around.
After the meal, they prepared to set off. Qing Shui had quite a good takeaway this time: Six pure-blooded ancient beasts, all of them had been sealed into the Primordial Demon Refining Furnace. Other than that, there was also the City Lord's Interspatial Bangle.
Qing Shui scanned through what was inside the bangle and smiled. There were quite a number of good things. It was because he saw things that he needed, such as the Divine Weapon Crystals. However, he only took a glance before throwing it into the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. As for the other people's Interspatial Silk Sachets, they were split between the other people who had participated in the battle.
Ordinary things that were decent no longer held any temptation to Qing Shui.
In the late afternoon, everyone set off once again. This time, they seemed a little more united. Everyone let Qing Shui and Priest Purewood take the lead. They didn't have a sense of security here and after Qing Shui had displayed his strong capabilities, everyone felt more assured.
Thunderous roars rang out and Qing Shui finally saw the demonic beasts he heard earlier, the Ancient Blue Topaz Leopards.
After seeing them, Qing Shui had the feeling that he couldn't bear to kill them. These two Ancient Blue Topaz Leopards had glimmering blue crystals all over their bodies. Their sizes were 20 meters long, had a smooth body and a graceful figure. Their heads looked very beautiful, not hideous at all. Moreover, they emitted powerful Spiritual Qi all over.
A demonic beast that was 20 meters long wasn't that small, but it was definitely considered small amongst other creatures of similar strength.
They were ancient beasts with a wind attribute and excelled in speed and assassination. At this moment, Nalan Qing walked over to Qing Shui, "Are we really going to kill them?"
