AST 1331 – White Tiger Transformation, Yehuang Guwu's past history
The increase in strength made Qing Shui feel particularly happy. His strength had actually increased by a few times within the short few days he went back to Qing Clan. This phenomenon made Qing Shui feel that he was closer to reaching the Eighth Heavenly Layer. In the past, he used to think that it was a tall mountain which could never be exceeded. But now, he somehow felt like a path had opened and that he would achieve it as long as he worked hard.
He would definitely be able to step into the False God Realm as soon as he achieved the Eighth Heavenly Layer. Hence, Qing Shui stopped considering what he had to prepare to achieve False God.
Other than that, it was the nameless technique. According to what Qing Shui had assumed, it should be something passed down from Joyous Meditation Sect of Buddha Sect. It's just that he never expected it to be this strong. Or rather, it was because the women that he met were all perfect.
In Duo Cultivation, Yin and Yang complemented each other. A lonely Yin wouldn't grow, nor would a single Yang give rise to anything. Those methods to reduce Yin to nourish Yang or reduce Yang to nourish Yin were all low-class Duo cultivations. While the more decent ones would enable one side of it to grow without affecting the other. The top-class ones would help increase both sides together. Anything beyond that belonged to legendary or divine grade. Those Duo Cultivations could help significantly raise the strength of both Yin and Yang together.
It was likely that this nameless technique belonged to at least a legendary grade. This martial technique had given a lot of benefits to Qing Shui. Not only that, even his women benefited a lot from it.
By now, he already had an answer for it. If there were only twelve Portraits of Beauty, at least Yu He would be removed from the list. The reason being that she didn't manage to establish contact with the Twelve Heavenly Meridians. But she managed to awaken one Golden Star, leading to a significant change in her Spirit Energy.
It could also be that the twelve Portraits of Beauty were now complete. Other than the extremely beautiful woman in palace costume, who was on top of the enormous green dragon, he had seen the rest of the women.
Qing Shui was sitting inside the pavilion. It was now halfway through the morning. The others had all gone to cultivate. Those who were going into seclusion had done so. This time, Qing Shui had brought great opportunities for them. Including the third generation, everyone wanted to visit the other few continents. Which men wouldn't feel heroic? Which men wouldn't feel ambitious?
A real man would hold a three foot long sword in their hand and achieve outstanding things.
Yun Duan and Hai Dongqing approached here. As for Qing Yun, someone else was still playing with her. The two girls came to Qing Shui when they saw him daydreaming. Qing Shui only noticed the two women when they were in the pavilion.
He stood up and grabbed the two women into his embrace and once again sat in the pavilion.
"What were you thinking about? You seemed really deep in thought," Hai Dongqing smiled and asked.
"I am thinking whether you will finally be pregnant this time considering the amount of times I have worked hard this visit." Qing Shui smiled and looked at the wise and elegant woman.
"Are you seeking death?!" Hai Dongqing yelled at Qing Shui. Her face was a bit red. Her entire face became filled with blood every time she thought about the scene of her and him alone together. This man was very demanding. At the moment when he released himself, he displayed a lot of embarrassing stances as well as language.
Yun Duan saw Hai Dongqing's expression. Unknowingly, she also started blushing. And right at this moment, Qing Shui also happened to be looking right at her. He couldn't help but laugh looking at both her and Hai Dongqing's shy look. He somehow felt a bit high-spirited and proud. At this moment, he felt incomparably satisfied with himself.
"It's time you should be leaving again!" Hai Dongqing smiled and asked after she her expression returned to normal.
"Yes, I can come back once every month. It was so much better compared to before. In the future, I can always keep you guys by my side. That way, we won't have to separate from each other anymore."
"Yes, I am already very happy. Initially, I even thought that we might not be able to meet each other for ten to twenty years," Yun Duan responded happily.
Because of Duo Cultivation, the strength of Qing Shui's women was improving at a very fast pace. Even when they were not from the Portraits of Beauty, they were still improving very rapidly. For example, Yun Duan, Mingyue Gelou. They were not much inferior to the women from Portraits of Beauty. They were all extremely beautiful women.
Qing Shui wasn't worried with the fourth generations of Qing Clan. With his current ability, if he were to build up a foundation for them since young, they would at least turn out to be warriors with decent strength. The main ones were the third and second generations of Qing Clan.
That person must be really strong, that's how Qing Shui felt. The gap between him and his mother would be really huge. It had been so many years, people would change. Where could he be? Was he now a formidable person?
On the last day, Qing Shui spent his time with his women and children. He looked at each and every one of his extremely beautiful women. They were all his women. Of course, there were also his daughters who were like small princesses. It was just that in comparison, he had fewer sons. Qing Zun, Qing Ming, Qing Long. Both Qing Zun and Qing Ming were already confirmed to not have any problems in terms of what they could achieve in the future.
Qing Long was still young. He was bashful like a tiny calf. Even though he was still young, Qing Shui had already helped him decided on his path to cultivate. He was going to cultivate his body.
Unknowingly, it had been a week since Qing Shui returned to Qing Clan. After bidding farewell to Qing Clan, he immediately used the ability of the Five Elements Divine Flag to transport husband and wives. He wanted to go have a look at Western Oxhe Continent. In any case, it was really convenient for him to go wherever he wanted now.
This time, they didn't feel awkward with each other. Yehuang Guwu was standing by the window of the bamboo house looking far away into the distance. At the moment when Qing Shui appeared beside her, she turned around and smiled, "You're back."
"Yes, Martial Aunt, what are you thinking about?" Qing Shui was standing beside her by the window and they were looking at the boundless sky and earth outside. Suddenly, he realized that he was slowly becoming calmer.
"Your strength is improving at a very fast pace," Yehuang Guwu changed the topic and said.
Qing Shui pulled her gently when he saw her exhausted eyes, "Let's go, I will help you relax yourself."
Qing Shui sat down opposite her. He extended his hands and put them on her shoulder. He slowly lifted up all ten of his fingers and after that, dropped them down very rapidly. He was doing it with average force. There was also a unique energy mixed within it.
"Martial Aunt, let me teach you a martial technique. With your body type, I think you should be really suitable for it. I can feel a mysterious energy within your body. You should be able to draw out terrifying strength with it." Qing Shui felt it when he was massaging her.
"Oh, what martial technique?" Yehuang Guwu seemed to be really curious.
Just like this, they agreed to practice it. Both Qing Shui and the woman headed off to the beach outside while Yu Ruyan and Tantai Xuan were still going through their seclusions. Yehuang Guwu said that they had actually managed to step into some kind of grade by accident this time. If they were lucky, they might even be able to come in contact with the great door of Heavenly Dao. The great door of Heavenly Dao wasn't something which only powerful people could step into.
There were still other people who were quite unique along the road. For example, great scholars, great artists, doctors, alchemists, craftsman and such. It was possible for them to step into Heavenly Dao and became a super existence in their respective fields.
Qing Shui practiced the forms first, he didn't stop at all. At his current level, there was no need for him to slow down purposely. He took great pains to explain everything while he performed the stances of the full Tiger Form, gradually manifesting a golden gigantic tiger.
State of Demonic Beast Manifestation!
Qing Shui has already achieved the State of Demonic Beast Manifestation. When he thrust out his fist with his Tiger Form, an entire tiger would appear from it, just like an actual ferocious tiger.
The woman only started moving after Qing Shui stopped. She was moving very slowly. However, Qing Shui was startled by it.
As thought, her body type was made to be the most suitable to cultivate Tiger Form, his own Tiger Form in particular.
She might be moving slowly but each and every one of her moves looked graceful and remarkably true to life. Furthermore, she was improving at a terrifying rate. Qing Shui could feel that the woman had already jumped out of the restrictions of Tiger Form with his Spiritual Sense.
All of a sudden, the woman thrust out a punch. As she did so, an enormous snow white jade tiger appeared in front of her. It didn't disperse. It was giving out majestic aura.
White Tiger Transformation!
Qing Shui looked towards the white tiger with his Heavenly Vision Technique and was stunned.
White Tiger, Grade Silver. Formed by condensing energy together. It possessed strength one fold stronger than that of its owner. Zero consumption. The energy could last for fifteen minutes. Controlled with consciousness, zero consumption. It was possible that it would disperse when hit by sufficient strength.
Was this woman reincarnated from a white tiger? Qing Shui was startled as he watched her condensing the white tiger that was almost fifty meters. Within half a day, the woman had already surpassed the Tiger Form which he taught her.
At this moment, the woman felt as if she just woke up from a long dream. After that, she once again condensed it. Yet another white tiger which looked exactly the same as the one before appeared beside her.
"For now, two white tigers are all that I can manage at the same time. But everytime I condense a White Tiger, it consumes 10% of my overall strength." Yehuang Guwu looked at Qing Shui in shock with her beautiful pupils.
"It seems only you are capable of cultivating the Tiger Form up to this kind of state. The others are all incapable of doing so." Even Qing Shui himself admired her a little. How good would it be if he could cultivate up to this kind of level as well?
"Actually, even I myself didn't know how things turned out like this. The things before this were like a dream to me." Yehuang Guwu looked like she was trying very hard to think back on the things before.
"This is how it should be," Qing Shui smiled and responded.
"Thank you. To me, this Martial Technique may already well be considered a supreme level technique," Yehuang Guwu said in excitement.
"Martial Aunt, is everything in Western Oxhe Continent alright?" Qing Shui smiled and asked.
"No, don't worry about it, you can relax even more with me here now. This place isn't the Phoenix Dancing Continent, nor is it the other two continents."
"Yes, Martial Aunt. If the Yehuang Clan in Yehuang Country came up to me, what shall I do?" Qing Shui asked after thinking for a while.
"Kill them if you can. But the precondition is that you need to stay safe yourself. Before reaching peak Martial Emperor, do not engage in combat with Yehuang Clan," Yehuang Guwu said after thinking for a while.
"Are you aware that there are False Gods within Yehuang Clan?" Qing Shui smiled and asked.
"I know but so long as Yehuang Clan isn't facing a crisis in which they may get the entire clan eliminated, no one will dare to disturb the False God within the clan," Yehuang Guwu said calmly.
Qing Shui let out a sigh of relief the moment he heard Yehuang Guwu's words. He smiled and said, "Martial Aunt, are you someone from Yehuang Clan?"
Yehuang Guwu looked at Qing Shui. After a moment of thoughts, she spoke slowly, "No, are you wondering why I still have the surname Yehuang?"
Qing Shui nodded his head and didn't say anything.
"My mom was insulted by the people from Yehuang Clan. After that, they abandoned her like a pair of torn shoes. But my mom's life was saved by someone else. He was a member from one of the branches of Yehuang Clan. He liked my mother, despite my mother being pregnant, he still married her and made her his wife. Ever since I was born, he even treated me like I was his own daughter. But later on, that person found out about it and soon, the entire family fell apart. He killed my father. My mother died too, she committed suicide. Because of her, my father's entire family ended up getting killed. Hence, she had no choice but to accompany him. He might not have been my blood-related father but I followed after him with my surname. Not the current family name of Yehuang Clan." When Yehuang Guwu talked up to this point, she seemed really calm. However, Qing Shui was able to feel the overflowing killing intent deep down in her heart.
No wonder she looked so tired. She still needed to pretend like she was strong and happy. No wonder in Phoenix Dancing Continent, she didn't……
"Martial Aunt, believe me, you will definitely be able to seek your vengeance yourself. Very soon, you will have the ability to do so." Qing Shui knew that she wouldn't hesitate to kill the blood-related father of hers. The reason being that they didn't share even the slightest family love with each other. On the contrary, the only existing feeling she had for him was hatred. Her mom was abandoned by them like torn shoes after being humiliated. To people like them, it's best to make mincemeat out of them.
Qing Shui could already figure out her story with Yehuang Clan back then when the woman told him not to save anyone from Yehuang Clan. But he never expected the story to be like this. Actually, almost every aristocratic clan would run into incidents like this. But it was impossible for every clan to have a person like Yehuang Guwu.

AST 1332 – Misunderstandings, Another Type of Breakthrough, Returning to the Imperial Cuisine Hall
Yehuang Guwu laughed happily when she heard what Qing Shui said. "I didn't have confidence in the past, but now I do. Thank you!"
"Martial Aunt, you don't have to thank me. You could say that this was destined. After all, you are the one who developed the changes to the Tiger Form. I am also happy that you grew strong," Qing Shui replied cheerfully.
"That's right. You benefited quite a lot from me, too. Should I be your woman? Anyways, I'm not going to marry anyone and you're not going to touch me." Yehuang Guwu smiled teasingly. She liked toying with Qing Shui. This younger man gave her a sense of security. If she couldn't marry anyone, it did not matter to her if they were just married in name. However, if she could be a real woman, who would she marry?
Yehuang Guwu was troubled when she thought about this, but she quickly dismissed that thought. If she could become a real woman, she should be happy and not worried.
"Sure!" Qing Shui replied. Somehow, he couldn't bring himself to reject the woman. He didn't want her to feel unhappy about the problem with her body, as it would affect her cultivation.
"Will you stay here for a few days?" Yehuang Guwu asked with a smile.
"I'm leaving tomorrow, but I will help you improve today!" Qing Shui took out his Life and Death Needles!
The Ren Meridian Strengthening Pellet and the Du Meridian Strengthening Pellet were suitable for people of all levels. Their effects on people with low cultivation levels and high cultivation levels were the same. They would leave a latent strengthening effect in people with lower levels of cultivation. As the person grew stronger, it would help them improve their natural talents. After all, the pellets were powerful medicines concocted with Sky Penetrating Grass, which could clear the Ren Meridian and Tiantu acupoints.
Right now, his Life and Death Needles could improve absorption significantly, nurture constitution and cleanse the marrow to promote the growth capacity of the body.
By later in the night, Yehuang Guwu's strength had increased to over 40,000 sun. Though this was within Qing Shui's expectations, he was still slightly surprised.
Most of the people in the Qing clan had also managed to more than double their strength, but their cultivation was considerably lower. On the other hand, Qing Shui felt accomplished after helping someone as powerful as Yehuang Guwu raise her strength by one fold.
Yehuang Guwu was awestruck. The most powerful person in Western Oxhe Continent wasn't even that strong. For someone in the Dancing Phoenix Continent to reach this level, that person must have had some sort of treasure or miracle medicine.
Then again, Qing Shui was both a physician and an alchemist, which was why his medical expertise could reach such incredible proficiency. She could tell that the biggest benefit from this treatment was not her increase in strength. Instead, she could feel that the treatment had increased her potential growth and solidified her foundations. This was akin to laying the foundations of a pagoda so that it would be more stable, allowing it to be built taller. Thus, It could be said that Qing Shui's Constitution Nurturing Acupuncture was among one of his best techniques.
"Qing Shui, I am going to take a bath. Come with me!" Yehuang Guwu grinned, pulling Qing Shui with her before he finished his sentence.
It was the same bathtub, but with two people, there wasn't much water and the water was already at their chest level. Both of them were naked, but the petals on the surface of the water blocked Qing Shui's view. The sort of vague partial view of her body made the whole situation even more erotic.
The top half of her breast was above the water as a few petals moved across and blocked the view of the pink nipples. Qing Shui didn't know if it was on purpose or just a coincidence. Qing Shui's legs were just beside Yehuang Guwu's jade-like legs. Every now and then, she would use her toes to tickle the bottom of his feet. Meanwhile, Qing Shui's front appendage was like a lance in the clear water.
"Is it hard to hold back?" Yehuang Guwu blushed and sat on Qing Shui in a mermaid-like posture. Qing Shui inhaled sharply and he could feel his penis growing hard. At the same time, the woman made a muffled sound as she sat on him. Next, they both froze.
The woman made a sound as she frowned and her body trembled. At that point, an inch of Qing Shui's lance had already entered a tight, warm space.
Qing Shui's penis hardened as he thought of this. With water as a lubricant, he entered another half an inch. He couldn't help but let out a comfortable sigh. Yehuang Guwu's body trembled again. She was a cultivator, so her body was very flexible, but she couldn't resist letting out a soft moan as she hooked her arms onto Qing Shui's neck. She let her body sink deeper as a flush of red appeared on her face.
"Are we together now, with this most intimate act?" Yehuang Guwu never expected that this would happen. She initially only wanted to toy with him or give him a handjob. She didn't know how it had progressed to such a state. By the time she realized, it had already happened. But since she was prepared from before, she would accept whatever happened. Otherwise, she wouldn't have shared a bath with him.
It wasn't as if she was ignorant about the matter. It was common knowledge, recorded in books. Many women would use sex to please their men, using their mouth, hands, voice and breasts. This was the joy of sex. However, she had never thought about such things in the past, even with her body. She didn't expect it would happen so suddenly.
"You're my woman, but we will feel closer like this." Qing Shui hugged the woman and felt a sort of pity for her. This person he called Martial Aunt, who appeared so headstrong and confident, was actually a pitiable woman. She might be making use of him, or was that too strong a term? Qing Shui wanted to tell her that he could make her a woman, but he did not speak. He felt that it wasn't the right time. She tried her best and made Qing Shui ejaculate in her body. Even though it was anal sex, she felt that it was the only way to feel his love.
Qing Shui didn't particularly control himself, but they did it for at least an hour. Actually, only Huoyun Liu-li dared to provide Qing Shui with such sexual play, but even that was also rare.
Qing Shui and Yehuang Guwu lay intertwined in a bed. After that affair, he felt that Yehuang Guwu was a lot calmer, having the look of a submissive woman. It was as if she had always been a normal woman.
"When will Xuan'er and Ruyan exit their seclusion?" Qing Shui asked quietly. He did not actually want to know when they would come out, but he wanted to know if the two girls knew about his relationship with Yehuang Guwu. He guessed that they already knew a little, but they might not know how intimate they were.
"Are you worried about the relationship between us?" Yehuang Guwu questioned Qing Shui, looking at him.
Qing Shui shook his head, "That's not it. If I was worried, I wouldn't even ask you."
"They seemed to be my disciples, but that is only in name. They call me Sister Wu, privately. But I am really just imparting my skills, like how you taught me. Do you want me to call you Master?" Yehuang Guwu smiled.
"Xuan'er seems to rely on you a lot. You both seem close."
"It isn't just "seem". We are actually close. She encouraged me to open myself to you because she noticed that I like you. Well, her encouragement worked." Yehuang Guwu chuckled.
"Martial Aunt, you should find that your powers are increasing rapidly and your wish will definitely come true." Qing Shui bid Yehuang Guwu farewell. He did not say that he would help her take revenge,as he knew that the woman was obstinate. With her Tiger Form, it was only a matter of time.
"I am sure of that. Please be careful. Don't worry about the Western Oxhe Continent. I will help you take care of the others." Yehuang Guwu knew what Qing Shui was worried about.
Qing Shui waved and then he disappeared from the Southern Sea!
When Qing Shui was in the Dancing Phoenix Continent once again, he felt calm. He used his Nine Continents Steps Effect and went to the Imperial Cuisine Hall. He was shocked when he reached the place. There were numerous expensive Beast carriages outside the gates, but that wasn't what astounded him. He was surprised to find that there were many non-cultivators.
Some of them were locals, but they do not own large mansions and buildings like the rich. They only owned rooms in large manors and shared the same courtyard, just like the communal dwellings in his previous life.
The Imperial Cuisine Hall was treating patients for free today but there were really too many people. Soulsearch was busy diagnosing and prescribing medicines for patients. He did not notice Qing Shui until he was right beside him.
"Younger brother, you are back." Soulsearch was pleasantly surprised. He was a little stressed during this period without Qing Shui, so he was visibly relieved when he saw him.
"Yes, brother. Let's settle the patients first."
With Qing Shui's help, the patients received their treatments more quickly. Armed with his Gold Needles, Qing Shui treated his patients within a few minutes. Some of them only needed some simple acupuncture.
"He is the divine physician of the Imperial Cuisine Hall. Even Physician Soulsearch was treated by him."
"He is so young!"
"This must be your first time here. Divine Physician Qing is a righteous man. He said that he would provide treatment to both the rich and poor, but definitely not people who are as unworthy as beasts."
"How can I pay for the medical fees if I have no money?"
"Do you know what charity care is? Besides, he said that different people will have to pay different medical costs. He doesn't allow any room for negotiation about this. Even if a rich person has the same symptoms as a poor person, the poor person will not need to pay to be given medicine. The rich man might have to spend half his fortune to be treated.
"This is what I call a true physician. He is indeed a righteous physician with great resolution.
The crowd only dispersed after nightfall. Qing Shui, Soulsearch and Liji headed to the fifth floor. The Imperial Cuisine Hall was more populous than ever. There were many more people from various aristocrat clans. After all, with the Puyang Clan around, the place was just full of life.
"Brother, did anything happen while I was not around?" Qing Shui asked.
"No. Someone wanted to join Imperial Cuisine Hall, but he insisted on meeting with you first." Soulsearch replied lightheartedly.
"This person's medical skills must be quite good." Qing Shui laughed. It was fairly obvious to him, as he could see that Soulsearch looked pleased.
