AST 1301 – The Ling Clan, Huge Gap In Strength. The Five Continents Has No Threat To Qing Clan
Unknowingly, Qing Shui has already stayed in the Qing Clan for a week. He spent most of his time helping the people from the Qing Clan increased their strength. He mainly helped them with Constitution Nurturing and with his current strength, he was able to provide significant aid to them. To the people from the Qing Clan, these were already considered to be a very significant leap.
During this time, Qing Shui would enter the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal in the morning. Other than the time he spent inside, of course not including the time at night, Qing Shui would spend the rest of his time to guide the people from the Qing Clan through their cultivation, including his time to do morning practices. He would also help them arrange their own specific routine.
Today, Qing Shui planned to go visit the so-called Heifeng Clan and Ling Clan. Even though the two clans had yet to do anything overboard ever since they came here, Qing Shui felt the need to thoroughly analyze them. If any accidents were to happen, he would found it too late to cry as this place was his headquarter.
He didn't let Luan Luan learn the Beast Divine Possession as she was too weak for it. Even though Yu Chang didn't have innate talents that were as powerful as Mingyue Gelou's, hers was quite a lot more powerful than Qing Bei's. Surprisingly, she had actually managed to catch up later on.
Yiye Jiange left. If Qing Shui wasn't home, Luan Luan would turn out to be the most powerful one amongst the people from the Qing Clan. Furthermore, she also had a lot of tamed beasts. Hence, Qing Shui left behind a lot of things that would help her cultivation and save her time to increase her strength.
The powerful feature of the Seven Heart of Orifices was that it would likely leap straight across small bottlenecks and helped increase the chances of breakthrough for the larger ones. Furthermore, Qing Shui had just helped her with his Gold Needle Acupuncture and Constitution Nurturing. He also gave her some medicinal pills which could help in her breakthrough.
He already started to use the medicinal herbs from the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. Qing Shui had already managed to collect some of the herbs which he used in the past. Other than a minority of the medicinal pills, he left majority of the remaining ones for them.
Luan Luan's formidable strength in the future was something which could never be stopped. The first thing which Qing Shui wanted to do was to build a foundation for her first. It was just the same as building a house, if its foundation wasn't firm enough, the height of the building itself would be limited. Hence, Qing Shui didn't make Luan Luan's cultivation speed as his priority. All along, he considered building up the foundation as the main thing for her. Only after he had arrived at the Western Oxhe Continent did he know that his decision was right.
With Luan Luan's innate talent, it wasn't too difficult for her to cultivate and increase her speed. Given about another than ten years time, Luan Luan's cultivation should be able to reach great height. It might take even less time with the help of the medicinal pills and martial techniques. If she could run into any unusual opportunities, she might be able to take yet another huge leap.
"Daddy, let me follow you to the Ling Clan and Heifeng Clan!" Luan Luan said while she hugged Qing Shui's arm.
"That's great too!" Qing Shui smiled after he thought for a while.
"I'm also going!" Qing Ming twitched his mouth and said.
"How is your cultivation progressing?" Qing Shui asked looking at Qing Ming.
"My speed is now more than five to six times faster than before. It feels really good to be faster." Qing Ming revealed a smile of exultation when he talked about this. He seemed really excited.
"Don't be satisfied with your progress now. There is no end to learning, you have no choice but to make yourself faster. At the time when I was your age, I was already a lot faster than you." Qing Shui was actually lying. He was scared that Qing Ming would already feel satisfied with just this.
"I don't believe you!" Qing Ming said with a smile.
"Alright then, come here. I am going to just stand here and not move even one foot away from here. I will keep my legs on the ground. I will promise you anything as long as you managed to touch the corner of my shirt." While speaking, Qing Shui drew out a circle that was one foot long with his legs.
"You cannot push me away with your martial arts, do not fly, do not dig underground, and lastly, do not walk out of the circle." Qing Ming said craftily with his eyes wide opened.
"Alright!" Qing Shui said with a smile.
As soon as Qing Ming finished speaking, he immediately leaped himself towards Qing Shui. After that, he right away slammed the small circle with his hands and legs wide open.
Despite his body being small, he was able to completely cover up the entire circle. As for Qing Shui, he couldn't leave the ground, nor could he attempt to block it.
However, Qing Shui was really happy. It seemed like this little brat was quite smart. Looking at the way he leaped towards Qing Shui, Luan Luan and some of the girls who rushed here all started to laugh.
Despite this, Qing Shui still had tricks up his sleeves. Qing Shui was a person who was proficient in the Nine Palace Steps and he could move as much as he like within the Nine Palace. The circle below his feet, as well as his entire body, instantly moved away by one foot. Furthermore, the people in the surrounding wasn't even able to notice that he moved. Qing Ming ended up on the ground instead and after that, he immediately moved his sight at Qing Shui.
"Daddy, you cheated!" Qing Ming said in a firm tone.
"What do you mean I cheated? I didn't get out of the circle." Qing Shui said with a smile.
"We have already said that you are not allowed to stop me with external forces. I am sure I have leaped into the circle itself, yet it turned out that I found myself outside of it. You must have pushed me aside." Qing Ming said in a firm tone.
"I didn't push you. You should be able to feel it. For example, I can use a kind of trick to deceive you and make you think that the position of the circle which you're looking at is correct when it's actually wrong.' Qing Shui said with a smile.
Actually, Qing Shui didn't really use it. It was easy for someone who had formidable Spirit Energy like him to use this kind of tricks on Qing Ming.
Qing Ming was stunned. After he thought for a while, he felt that he didn't really understand it. He refused to give up and once again charged towards Qing Shui. This time, he no longer used the methods he did before. Instead, he tried to grab Qing Shui with his hands and kept his eyes deadly locked onto Qing Shui.
Even though the ground below his feet was a circle, Qing Ming was unable to touch even the corner of Qing Shui's clothes. The little brat's bullheadedness got triggered and he started to grab Qing Shui non-stop.
Right at this moment, Qing Shui spoke and dropped him a few hints. He instructed him to use the Duality Steps.
Duality gave birth to wind. Wind strengthened water and fire, but water and fire were arch enemies of each other.
It was as if Qing Shui's words had a kind of magical power, Qing Ming had started to understand the usage of the Duality Steps. He constantly changed his footsteps while he performed the Solitary Rapid Fists with his hands, and initiated attacks at Qing Shui from all sides. In fact, he was already adept at using the Duality Steps to begin with and now, it even seemed like he had broken through his previous realm.
Initially, Qing Shui had already helped him develop his body physique through Constitution Nurturing to help increase his speed by a few times and now, he even managed to ascend in his realm. If no accidents were to happen, he should already be able to cultivate the Trinity Steps, or maybe even the Four Phases Step.
It seemed like Qing Ming had also immersed himself in a certain realm. It was as if he had gotten into a kind of State of No Conscious. However, he was still able to hear what Qing Shui said and this state seemed kind to appear randomly. It was like he was able to do the things which he found difficult to pull off on normal occasions.
Just like this, after about fifteen minutes past, Qing Ming stopped. He revealed a face of joy.
"How do you feel?" Qing Shui smiled and said.
"In the past, I used to feel that I was really, really fast. But now, even though I may have gotten a lot faster than before, I don't feel as fast as I used to." Qing MIing said after he thought for a while.
"Yes. In the past, you used to be just like a frog under a well. Although you only jumped a foot away, you would feel that you jumped very far. But now that you are already out of the well, despite leaping ten foot ahead, the distance is still insignificant to the vastness of heavens. This is why you no longer feel as fast as before, the primary reason is because you have not yet achieved the level 'so close yet so worlds apart'." Qing Shui was very happy in his heart. This could be considered a critical break through for Qing Ming.
"Daddy, let me go and try to familiar myself with it!" Qing Ming immediately ran away after he finished speaking.
Qing Shui smiled. Somehow, he found that this son of his was currently on the right track.
Mingyue Gelou was also smiling. She noticed that her burden has gotten a lot lighter since Qing Shui came back. Prior to this, she used to fear that she didn't educate her son well. She was always concerned that he would learn the wrong things. When Qing Shui came back, the way he educated his son was totally different compared to hers. He gave him a lot of freedom with only a tiny bit of restriction. As this happened, she noticed that her son has gotten less rebellious. Furthermore, he really admired his father.
She was really happy to see this. In fact, she really enjoyed it. In the future, if Qing Shui could come back once per month, she could leave educating her son to him.
Qing SHui summoned the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. Luan Luan hopped onto it before she waved her hand at her family and flew towards Ling Clan. After all, Qing Ming seemed to share quite a decent relationship with Ling Clan.
Actually, both Ling Clan and Heifeng Clan weren't far away from Qing Shui. Qing Shui used the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant as his mean of transport mainly only to use it as a temporary expedient.
Even under the influence of Heaven and Earth's Law across the five continents, the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant still possessed more than four hundred sun worth of strength. Across the five continents, it was undoubtedly an unrivalled existence. After all, there wasn't anyone who was capable of unleashing a hundred nimbus worth of strength. From the way it seemed on the surface, the tallest height one could reach was at most worth only slightly more than ten nimbus. Of course, this was excluding those who tried to hide themselves within the continents. After all, no one knew how much strength a warrior was keeping hidden within themselves.
The speed of the Golden S caled Dragon Elephant was very slow. But because they were close to Ling Clan and Heifeng Clan, they were able to reach fairly quickly. After that, the vicious aura of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant immediately pressed down towards the ground with earth-shattering aura.
Qing Shui did this as a way to demonstrate his strength. Though this method might have been a bit tyranny, it wasn't too overboard. As of now, it's only through the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant for him to express his status as a warrior.
At the moment when Qing Shui and Luan Luan came down from the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, there were already a lot of people in front of the Ling Residence. Each and every one of them had a nervous look on their face as they looked at the tyrant-like Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant in the sky.
Qing Shui stared back directly at the people below. Among them, there were some old men, middle-aged men, and young men. Together, there were roughly 200 of them and they were basically all warriors. Some of them even possessed decent strength. Despite being affected by the Laws of Heaven and Earth, they still managed to achieve roughly more than ten nimbus worth of strength. This actually made Qing Shui felt surprised. The most powerful being within the five continents was only worth this much. As for the girls and Luan Luan from the Qing Clan, they had all already surpassed this level of strength.
Upon seeing Luan Luan, the people from the Ling Clan all let out sighs of relief. An old man with white hair and a youthful face said politely. "Sorry for not meeting you to welcome you when you came back, senior!"
"Old man, it's Qing Shui who was being too bold. I am sorry for frightening everyone." Qing Shui wasn't used on making too much of a deal about himself. Hence, he replied in a friendly tone.
"That's absolutely not the case. I wasn't aware that you're back, hence, I didn't manage to go pay you a visit. I hope that you can forgive me for this." The old man addressed him as a senior as soon as he started to talk to him. After all, it would only take Qing Shui a few breaths to eliminate the Ling Clan.
"Senior, please come in. Eldest mistress, please!" The old man quickly let Qing Shui walked towards the Ling Clan. At this moment, the people from the clan had dispersed themselves and were gone to do their own stuff.
"Old man, I am aware that the Ling Clan has been really close to the Qing Clan lately, why don't you call me Qing Shui?" Both Qing Shui and the old man walked together towards the Ling Clan.
"How can this be? No, no." The old man said hurriedly.
"Qing Ming is my son. Hence, old man, you don't have to act so formally. Even though I have killed quite a lot of people, I have never killed someone innocent." Qing Shui was aware that the old man must have heard about him before. Hence, he should be a bit scared of Qing Shui.
The old man's eyes flashed. After that, he said gently, "Well then, I, as an old man, is going to indulge myself and start calling you Qing Shui."
After all, the gap in strength was just too large.
In the living room!
"Old man, before I left last time, I haven't come across the Ling Clan and the Heifeng Clan. Can I ask where you guys moved from?" Qing Shui smiled and said while he took the tea handed to him.
"Actually, both the Ling Clan and the Heifeng Clan came from the Southern Viewing Continent.

AST 1302 – Qing Shui’s Awkward Transmission With the Five Elements Divine Flags (teaser)
“Oh, I’ve been to the Southern Viewing Continent before as well. Why did you move over from the Southern Viewing Continent?”
The old man was the Ling Clan’s clan head, Ling Xiao. When Qing Shui heard the old man mention the Southern Viewing Continent, the first thing he thought of was the Tantai Clan. It was because Tantai Xuan also had an inseparable relationship with Qing Shui now. Moreover, he had been the to Tantai Clan before. The Putuo Mountain in the five continents was only a branch of the Western Oxhe Continent’s Putuo Mountain. Moreover, Qing Shui had received the Five Elements Divine Flag from the head of the Western Oxhe Continent’s Putuo Mountain.
Additionally, Qing Shui had also thought of Ye Guyan, that proud and lonely woman. He also thought of that young lass. He was the one who had sent her to Ye Guyan personally to let them reunite. He had also helped the Ye Clan resolve their dangerous plight. Even if it was in the past, the Tantai Clan would probably still take care of the Ye Clan, let alone now.
However, he had no idea if she was doing well now. As he thought of that lady, Qing Shui’s memory wasn’t very clear, but it wasn’t vague either. It only seemed to have been very far away, as if it was something which had happened a long, long time ago. Actually, thinking about it, it was actually already been quite a while.
“Both the Ling Clan and the Heifeng Clan couldn’t stay on the Southern Viewing Continent. They were left with no choice but to move out from there. However, they hadn’t expected to encounter a powerful clan like the Qing Clan.” Ling Xiao seemed to be a little bitter as he mentioned their problem with survival.
Qing Shui’s understanding of the Southern Viewing Continent was only limited to the Southern Sea City. The Southern Sea City was the capital of the Southern Viewing Continent. Basically, all the powerful influences would be gathered there.
“Old Sir, with the Ling Clan’s abilities, there aren’t that many people in the five continents who can surpass you. I wonder who is it that was able to force out the Ling Clan. That Heifeng Clan shouldn’t be that weak compared to the Ling Clan, right?” Qing Shui felt very curious.
“The Heifeng Clan is even stronger than the Ling Clan. It’s just that even with our two clans combined, we weren’t able to fend off the opponents. The other party are barbarians. Our clans were initially based on the Southern Sea Island, but they had taken over. Our clans have lost quite a number of strong fighters and only managed to make our escape.” Ling Xiao was very downcasted when he said this.
Qing Shui thought of the barbarians in the Western Oxhe Continent who were situated close to the Southern Sea. Through the map of the nine continents, he knew that the Southern Sea in the five continents was the same as the one in the Western Oxhe Continent. The Southern Sea was vast, and by right, these barbarians shouldn’t be the same ones in the Western Oxhe Continent. Could they be the barbarians from some islands in the Southern Sea?
There were many islands located in the deeper regions of the Southern Sea, some of which were very big and had a huge population. They were just like a small world themselves.
The fact that the Ling Clan could escape meant that these barbarians weren’t very terrifying. Compared to the Ling Clan and the HeifFeng Clan, they shouldn’t be that much more powerful. It might just be that they were greater in numbers.
“How many people did they have?” Qing Shui suddenly thought of the Tantai Clan and the Ye Clan in the Southern Sea City.
“There are at least 5,000 of them, and each of them are all very powerful. However, it seems that they don’t really dare to get close to the Southern Sea City.” Ling Xiao gave it some thought and said.
The Southern Sea City’s information network should already have informed them of this. Furthermore, the Ling Clan and the Heifeng Clan had already been here for over a year. Moreover, the Southern Sea City would definitely have existences which the barbarians were concerned about. For example, the guardian clans or some clans who were hidden. Although these people wouldn’t take action, they had their bottom line. If someone were to surpass their bottom line, they would definitely take action. If the barbarians dared to attack the Southern Sea City, they would definitely step forth.
Therefore, Qing Shui didn’t plan to head there, and it had already been so long. If anything were to happen, the news would have spread here. The gap between the nine continents was far too great. This made Qing Shui felt that there seemed to be a huge turmoil under the calm appearance.
The primary reason Qing Shui was here today was to check out how powerful the Ling Clan and the Heifeng Clan were, and also to induce threat. After seeing the Ling Clan’s abilities, Qing Shui could now rest at ease. They were a far cry from the current Qing Clan. The Qing Clan could even potentially become the most powerful existence in the surface of the five continents.
After a chat with the Ling Clan, with the remark of how he hoped that everyone could get along together, Qing Shui bade farewell from the Ling Clan and left with Luan Luan to the Heifeng Clan.
The Heifeng Clan had heard long ago that Qing Shui visitedthe Ling Clan, and thus they also stood at the door respectfully as they wait for his arrival. Before absolute power, everyone must humble themselves. This was the rule in the martial world, the pride of a cultivator, and the rules of survival.
The Heifeng Clan was wary of the Qing Clan to begin with because each of those unrivaled beauties in the Qing Clan was all very strong. Moreover, this young man who was coming was an even greater heaven-defying existence. He must have come from the other four continents.
The people of the Heifeng Clan were a little similar to their surnames and their skin color was darker. This seemed to be due to a bloodline, but it was a pity that it wasn’t a Violet Golden Bloodline or Golden Bloodline. It wasn’t precious but was still slightly better than an ordinary bloodline. People with this bloodline would have relatively stronger physiques.
It was a pity that ordinary people would rather prefer to have a normal bloodline than this bloodline. It was because people with such bloodline were too tanned. For men, it wasn’t that a big of a deal, but for women, it would be a pity.
Qing Shui didn’t even take half a day to return to the Qing Clan with Luan Luan. Through his spiritual sense, he could tell that there were no experts in the Ling Clan and the Heifeng Clan. He would be assured just by going once. He could also pass some message through the two clans. Moreover, the Buddha Sect and the Demon Sect weren’t just watching from the sidelines.
Qing Shui didn’t know how the Lion King’s Ridge had been. However, Qing Shui didn’t find any traces of the Buddha Sect and the Lion King’s Ridge in the other four continents. The Buddha Sect wasn’t strong enough and the Western Oxhe Continent was far too vast. The Western Oxhe Continent which Qing Shui had been to was just the tip of the iceberg. Although the places he went to were the powerful dynasties, it could be that the Buddha Sect was in a Grade One Dynasty and that the Lion King’s Ridge could be in a Grade Two or Three Dynasty. Qing Shui hadn’t found anything out. However, they were still a threat and thus, he would have to go and check when he returned.
Qing Shui didn’t plan on heading to the Lion King’s Ridge as the news should be able to reach them. Furthermore, news from the other four continents could also reach them. Another thing was that Qing Shui had planned to check out the Formation Immortal Sect when he headed back. Right now, he was capable of doing so.
After he returned, Qing Shui planned to head to back to the Western Oxhe Continent. He promised them that he would visit them occasionally. Although they couldn’t bear to part with him, for him to be able to come back and visit once in awhile had already made them felt satisfied. This was something which they couldn’t even dare to dream about in the past. They thought that they wouldn’t be able to see him until 10 or 20 years later.
Seeing that it was already afternoon, Qing Shui felt that it was best to return at this timing!
It was because he needed to use the husband and wife transmission function of the Five Elements Divine Flags. It wouldn’t be good if it was too early, and it would be worse if it was too late. Therefore, he chose a time before the sun was going to set to head back.
After he waved goodbye to the people from the Qing Clan, Qing Shui disappeared.
When he appeared once again, Qing Shui felt like crying…
He found himself in water, which meant that that lady was in the water. What kind of water could she be in? He was in a bathtub, it was very large with a diameter of three meters long and there was also a light floral fragrance around him. The blow dealt by these aspects were still considered low. It was because there was a naked demoness right before his eyes.
This was what Qing Shui feared the most. He was afraid that she would be sleeping when he transmitted through the places. He was afraid that she could be tending to private affairs. Of course, he was also afraid that she was bathing. He realized that the more fearful he was about something, the greater the likelihood of that something to happen.
The lady was clearly in a great shock as well. Her long and slender leg kicked out toward Qing Shui, causing a current that was akin to a small dragon to flow toward him. It was a very thin current but had the terrifying intent of a venomous snake.
The lady quickly saw that it was Qing Shui and recovered her cool. However, she still felt a little complicated. She drew back her attack and then walked over without a care.
The water in the bathtub was clear and her snow-white figure was one, amongst what Qing Shui had seen before, which could lightt up a fire in a man’s heart the most. Her pair of round breasts was well-embodied and exuded a seductive fragrance. Her erect pink-colored peaks were extremely eye-catching.
She had a flat stomach and the beautiful bosom that was so well-rounded, truly gave one the urge to pounce toward her. However, when Qing Shui saw her private area, he was stunned. It was because it was totally bare, leaving only a pink gap which could cause one’s nose to spurt blood.
“Am I beautiful?” The lady’s mature and charming voice rang out as her arms laid on Qing Shui’s shoulder.
Qing Shui was as if he was shocked awake. He lifted his head to look at her face which was both mature and graceful, with a little bit of holiness at the same time. There was both awkwardness and a blush on her face. He felt that this lady was very daring and yet very lustful as well.
“I didn’t know that you take a bath at this time.” Qing Shui said softly. Since he had already seen her naked, it would feel a little hypocritical to apologize now.
Qing Shui had actually been touched in the most important place, both mentally and physically. They should be even now, or rather, he was still on the losing end.
“Where were you looking at earlier? Was it good to look at?” The lady’s expression was calm and doesn't even show a hint of embarrassment or a tinge of blush.
“You’re a White Tiger !” Qing Shui said softly.
The lady's face flushed red and seemed to appear a little bitter as well.
“That’s right, I’m a White Tiger. However, I’m one that is different from others. Don’t have any ideas about me, else you’ll lose your life.” The lady leaped out naked and headed toward inside the room inside where her clothes were..
Qing Shui was still stunned. White Tiger… She should be about the same as Wenren Wu-shuang, and seemed to be someone who would bring bad luck to her husband. It was because if men were to find their way up to their beds, they would die very quickly…
However, he had the Nine Yang Golden Body which had exceeded the great perfection stage. Therefore, even with Wenren Wu-shuang, he would be able to have sex with her now…
However, he had a strange relationship with this lady. It was so strange that it made Qing Shui feel as if he was in a dream and everything seemed to be so unnatural.
He stood up and got out from the bathtub. He channeled his Qi to evaporate the water on his body and very soon after, the lady came out properly dressed. Her plain clothes couldn’t hide her well-embodied figure and her face had returned to her composed state. However, there was still a bit of blush on her face which would not be discovered if someone didn't look carefully.
“You went back home?” The lady smiled and asked.
This was the bamboo building the lady had in the Southern Sea. However, Tantai Xuan and Yu Ruyan weren’t around this time.
“Mhm!” Qing Shui replied.
He felt very down. To think that the first time he used this to teleport, he had found himself in her bathtub. How could he possibly use this in the future? Although Qing Shui was thick-skinned, she wasn’t his woman, and it was still a little abrupt.
“Is everything at home well?”
“Yes, everything’s fine. In the future, I might return once every month or once every two months…” Qing Shui looked at the lady and said softly.
“Mmm, that’s good too!” The lady smiled and said.
“But I’m afraid that something like this will happen again.”
“Do you like to see it?”
When the lady said this, Qing Shui broke out in perspiration. He touched his forehead as he looked at this seductive lady. She appeared to be a little pure, a little graceful, and the remaining parts were a unique mature disposition. However, right now, her purity and seductiveness and completely merged together.
