AST 1391 – Fire Bird’s Morphing, Hell’s Phoenix, Soaring to the Sky

“The Left Custodian is wanting to take action against you and will be bringing in other members of the Phoenix Dance Organization,” the old man looked at Qing Shui and said.

Hearing this, Qing Shui felt that his ability to get information was still very weak. Although the Jade Emperor Bees could be put to use, there were still plenty of disadvantages. Although he had a divine connection with them, they were after all, a lot different from humans.

“Sir, if you guys don’t have a lot of confidence, then it’s better for you to not get involved," Qing Shui gave it some thought and said.

“It’s fine. Although the Cloud Flutter isn’t as powerful as the Phoenix Dance, it isn’t that easy for them to wipe us out. Even if they did eradicate us, the Phoenix Dance will suffer great losses as well and they’ll end up being taken advantage of by other powers. Therefore, the Phoenix Dance won’t really go all out with the Cloud Flutter.”

“If the Cloud Flutter were to stop the Phoenix Dance from making any moves against me, they still wouldn’t fight it out with the Cloud Flutter?” Qing Shui couldn’t understand.

“They won’t but they’ll try to avoid us. Therefore, I’ll do my best but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to stop them entirely.” Saying this, the old man was a little worried as well.

Qing Shui looked at the old man for a while and felt that he did not lie. Smiling, Qing Shui said, “There’s no need to worried. Even if the Che Clan and the Phoenix Dance want to swallow me up, it won’t be that easy for them either.”

If this was said by some other young man, the old man would definitely treat it as rubbish talk. However, Qing Shui was different. The old man didn’t feel that Qing Shui was boasting. After some hesitation, the old man said, “What do you think of letting Little Jian and Little Ying stay with you?”

Little Jian and Little Ying were Yun Yijian and his wife.

“That’s good too. But don’t let them make a move unless necessary. It’ll be fine as long as they can help to take care of two people. As long as they are not attacked, then there’s no need for the two of them to do anything,” Qing Shui gave it some thought and said.

“Okay. I’ll be more at ease with this arrangement. Having one more person would mean more security.” The old man stood up.

“Little Jian, you’ll stay here and do what Qing Shui said,” the old man said to Yun Yijian.

“Mmm, I got it. Little Ying should be arriving soon. I’ll go look for her.”

The people outside knew that there was trouble brewing here. Although nothing could be seen on the surface, everyone knew that there would be an explosion sooner or later. Those with news and quick wits would already have sensed the danger. There should still be other powers who would get involved.

It wasn’t known who was the one to spread the news but people now were aware that Qing Shui had helped Cloud Flutter’s Yun Wanpeng increased his lifespan by several hundreds of years.

Yun Wanpeng was that old man from Yun Clan.

Many experts in this area knew that Yun Wanpeng’s lifespan was nearing its end but now, Yun Wanpeng appeared to be invigorated and full of vitality. This was something which could not be faked. Experts were very sensitive to things like this. This was especially so, when one was only left with about half a year or so lifespan. It was hard to conceal something like this.

Therefore, many people believed in the news and now knew that there was an amazing Miraculous Physician at the Imperial Cuisine Hall. In the past, many people had looked down on the Imperial Cuisine Hall but they now all changed their minds. Those who had received a token from the Imperial Cuisine Hall were now exhilarated. This was a token that could ensure one’s life and increase one’s lifespan. Moreover, the value of this token was now skyhigh.

Those who had gone to the Imperial Cuisine Hall in the past and could have easily obtained a token, but had left in fury, were now full of regret. This was especially so for those who had said spiteful words and had done so in front of Qing Shui. These people now felt so upset that they wanted to bang their heads against a wall.

Many people now knew of how amazing Qing Shui was and wanted to get into his good books. Even under such a situation, many people were still raring to take action.

However, Qing Shui refused to meet anyone. Since he had decided to put on airs, he decided to go all out. Moreover, he spread the word that he would only meet others after the matter with the Che Clan was over.

What a joke. After the matters with the Che Clan were settled, would it still be as easy for them to enter?

Clever people knew what Qing Shui meant and thus, they backed off. Qing Shui’s intentions were very clear. If they wanted him to help them increase their lifespans, then they would have to pay the price. For example, to go against the Phoenix Dance and the Che Clan. This was what Cloud Flutter had done…

The Phoenix Dance wasn’t the only big power in the continent’s capital. Moreover, with the involvement of the Cloud City, there were still some bigger clans and powers who chose to stood up against the Phoenix Dance. There would be people keeping guard around the Imperial Cuisine Hall every day.

Qing Shui stood on the rooftop. If the Phoenix Dance wished to take him on with their advantage in numbers, then they had underestimated his influence. As a powerful physician, as long as he played the right cards, he could easily let a great clan be wiped out completely.

Of course, the situation had yet to become so serious. For now, he would let his targets feel troubled and go crazy.

Qing Shui didn’t know if it was because of Cloud Flutter or because of the involvement of other clans and powers that the day had passed by peacefully. He called his demonic beasts out to stand guard while he entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal to cultivate. However, the moment he entered, he was stunned.

The Fire Bird had changed. Did it attain a breakthrough?

Right now, the size of the Fire Bird was over two times bigger than what it was previously. Its feathers were still pitch black, like black treasured stones. It exuded a cold and elegant aura. When it saw Qing Shui, it cried out happily.

This should be the cry of a phoenix!

Why did it attain a breakthrough? Could it be because he had cultivated the Phoenix Form?

What was the connection? Qing Shui assessed the Fire Bird and saw that the crown it had on its head previously had now grown very big. It was still a pitch black crown but was extremely brilliant.


At this moment, Qing Shui felt very excited. The Fire Bird could now be said to be extremely close to the legendary phoenix. But was it considered a phoenix yet?

Heavenly Vision Technique!

Hell’s Phoenix, Bloodline Power: Weak!

Qing Shui understood at first glance and felt very agitated. The Fire Bird was now considered to be a phoenix. It was a Hell’s Phoenix. Even though it was a phoenix with a weak blood lineage. It was still considered to be a phoenix.

A phoenix wasn’t an existence which ordinary demonic beasts could win against, even if it was a phoenix with the weakest blood lineage.

Qing Shui looked toward its physical strength. It had now reached a terrifying 200 sun. Qing Shui was filled with emotions as well as feelings of regrets. It was because he hadn’t been around when the Fire Bird went through the morph. He didn’t get to see that majestic scene. He didn’t even know how the Fire Bird had suddenly morphed.

Although it always had the possibility of undergoing a morph, nothing had happened so far. Therefore, Qing Shui hadn’t been paying attention in this area. The long time that had passed in the actual world was considered to be a very long time in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.

For the “Fire Bird’s” physical strength to reach 200 sun, it could be said that it had progressed tremendously. It was a huge rise. Qing Shui looked excitedly toward the Fire Bird’s battle techniques, hoping that it could give him a great surprise during such a crucial period.

Dark Phoenix of Nine Heavens, passive battle technique, zero depletion, permanently increases power by four times. The depletion from any usage of battle techniques and attacks would be reduced by half.

Powerful… Qing Shui now had no idea what he could say to express his current feelings. He had a feeling that for the Fire Bird to have morphed into the Hell’s Phoenix, it could not be considered an Immortal Demon existence and was now at the False God level.

He now had a False God level demonic beast as well…

The more Qing Shui thought about it, the more gloomy he felt for having missed the scene of the Fire Bird’s morphing. This was a huge loss. However, looking at the Fire Bird, which should now be considered a Hell’s Phoenix, Qing Shui still felt especially happy.

Superior Flight: A powerful flying ability of the Hell’s Phoenix. Flying speed is increased by tenfold and depletion from flying is reduced by tenfold.

Terrifying… Qing Shui’s mouth was agape and he was stunned… He hadn’t expected that the Fire Bird would be the first one to undergo a morph. He had thought that the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant would be first.

Hell’s Inferno: The powerful flame attack unleashed by the Fire Bird. Its pitch black flames can burn everything and have terrifying destructive powers. It was the Black Phoenix’s powerful battle technique and the power of fire attribute attacks was five times that of its physical strength.

Phoenix Dance of Nine Heavens: Passive battle technique, permanently increase fire attribute attacks by tenfold. The damage it received would be halved. All resistance increase by threefold. Zero depletion.

When Qing Shui saw this, he smiled. He was unable to contain his smile. This was far too terrifying. The Hell’s Inferno itself was five times its physical strength and the Phoenix Dance of the Nine Heavens once again increased tenfold… It had now exceeded 55 times…

This was what morphing was. A phoenix Immortal Demon was a terrifying existence, even if it was just at the lowest level. The day he had been anticipating had finally arrived!

Underworld Fireball: Unleash a fireball attack. Its attacking prowess was five times its strength. The fireball contained a terrifying explosive power. When it exploded, the prowess is doubled once again. Spiritually locked onto target.

Qing Shui’s mouth was agape. That feeling was even happier than being hit by a fallen treasure from the sky. He now felt a little numb. All the cells in his body were jumping about excitedly and right now, he could no longer express the surprise in his heart.

Phoenix Paradise: When the Fire Bird received fatal damage, it would have a 30% chance to go through a Firebath Rebirth. The successful rebirth would be like a transformation with its strength being twice as strong as before.

There were no changes to this. Qing Shui didn’t find it strange either.

Finally, Qing Shui discovered that there were two more battle techniques.

Phoenix Heart: A powerful Phoenix Heart could allow the all of the phoenix’s prowess to be doubled once again, damage received reduced by half once again and all depletion to be reduced one fold. Zero depletion, passive battle technique.

Phoenix Might: Absolute suppression over all bird-type beasts, with the exception of phoenixes, suppressing their abilities by at least 10%. At most, it could cause the target to lose its battle prowess but it was unable to cause a suppression in other areas. Zero depletion, passive battle technique!

When the Fire Bird activated the Underworld Fireball, at the moment when it exploded, the prowess could surpass 20 million sun…

Could this be the power of the phoenix? This was when it was just the Hell’s Phoenix which had a weak blood lineage. Then what kind of power did demonic beasts at the level of phoenixes or dragons with a powerful blood lineage have?

The Spirit Gathering Lamp once again lost its effect. Otherwise, if the prowess of the abilities were doubled again, he could go straight to wipe out the Phoenix Dance Organization. It should be possible…

Since the effect was lost, then so be it. The power of the Fire Bird was already very terrifying. Its resistance was higher and so was its speed. Furthermore, there was also the suppression ability. Toward bird-typed beasts, with the exception of phoenixes, the suppression was absolute. For others, for example, humans, it was unknown how much the suppression would work. Since it wasn’t absolute, any situation could be possible.

Peak Grade Five False God was at a level with a strength of 16 million sun. The Fire Bird had already surpassed 22 million sun. Demonic beasts didn’t have to go through the False God Tribulations but they would undergo morphing. The later the phase, the harder it was to morph.

Qing Shui’s Paragon Strike was only slightly over 15 million sun. Right now, he felt very much at ease. After being weakened by the Hundred Birds Worshiping The Phoenix and Emperor’s Qi, who could still withstand the explosive impact of the Fire Bird’s Underworld Fireball? Furthermore, this attack was one that was locked onto the target and impossible to dodge, unless the target destroyed the fireball before it reached them.

This was a surprise, a great surprise. Qing Shui felt very much at ease. In this situation, where he waited to receive things thrown at him, he had enough support.

The Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant was also on the verge of attaining a breakthrough but there were still no signs of it. The Fire Bird’s breakthrough could settle the pressing impending danger and after the things here were settled, he might be able to go take a look at the Demon Lord Palace. If the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant were to attain a breakthrough, he would be even more confident. Qing Shui was full of anticipation. Right now, his powers were stabilized and slowly improving.

AST 1392 – Devil Suppression Formation, Devil Slaying Golden Lock Formation, Che Clan and Left Custodian (teaser)

Qing Shui wasn’t too surprised that the Spirit Gathering Lamp had lost its effect. At grade six, the level of the Spirit Gathering Lamp was considered to be too low. Even if it were to increase by one grade, it would be hard for there to be any effect. Although these things were very good, it was too hard to increase their grades.

This was even when Qing Shui had the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. Otherwise, even if he had these treasures, there was no way that they could be of any use. This was unless he could find some things which could increase the grade of the treasures directly.

Qing Shui was satisfied. In the future, after the Spirit Gathering Lamp leveled up, it could be a huge surprise. Right now, the Fire Bird’s strength of 22 million sun was already sufficient to deal with the current situation.

With a great feeling of surprise and joy, Qing Shui started his cultivation!


In the previous battle, Qing Shui once again experienced the prowess of formations. If it was a one-on-one fight, formations were not of much use. Qing Shui had the Nine Palace Steps and his family started learning it from a young age. Moreover, all of them learn the same formation as well.

The Nine Palace Eight Trigrams Formation!

The Nine Palace Eight Trigrams Formation could be adapted into other formations, such as the Nine Palace Eight Trigrams Sword Formation. He had taught this formation to them a long time ago, as well as the Five Elements Minor Formation, which was a combination of a confining formation and a killing formation.

After Qing Shui attained a breakthrough to the eighth heavenly layer, he experienced a huge improvement in all areas, including formations. He realized that he could now learn quite a number of formations.

Devil Suppression Formation, Devil Slaying Golden Lock Formation……

These formations were all quite good but the prerequisites were very high and they were very strict in positions. Therefore, in order to learn these, there was a need to have a good grasp of time and one must also have considerable cultivation and a powerful brain.

Qing Shui could only take a look at them and visualize the implementation in his mind or try to figure it out by himself.

He continued to cultivate like this, studying some other things, refining demons, tempering when he was taking a rest. Unknowingly, it was time for him to leave the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. He had only learned the tip of the iceberg that was these formations but this had already allowed him to feel how powerful these formations were.

Qing Shui had finished the Four-Yang Pills and the people around him could only eat them once a year. It was already a great blessing for one to be able to eat such medicinal pills once a year. There was the Origin Returning Pill as well.

Qing Shui and Yehuang Guwu had already reached the False God level and thus couldn’t use it anymore. It was a pity that they couldn’t use such a good medicinal pill. Qing Shui put aside the Four-Yang Pills, Origin Returning Pills and Double Portion Medication he had refined. In the future, the demand for these would be very high.

After just one night, Qing Shui felt as if even the skies appeared to be different now. Right now, he could relax on the highest floor, sipping tea. He didn’t worry at all that Che Clan would come to exact revenge and he was even feeling a little expectant.

Around the Imperial Cuisine Hall, or rather, along the streets where the Imperial Cuisine Hall was located, the traffic flow was over double what it usually was. The restaurants and other places were filled with people.

Qing Shui felt that Che Clan should already have made their move. Now that things had already reached this stage, there were no other options. Even the Phoenix Dance Organization had to be changed a little.

Tianhe Renmo sat opposite Qing Shui and drank tea with him.

“Brother, you aren’t worried at all?” Tianhe Renmo looked at Qing Shui, looking unfathomable like a deep swamp or a great ocean. He had no idea what the other was thinking at all. He couldn’t sense anything either.

“Why is there a need to worry? The one who should worry is someone else,” Qing Shui smiled and said, feeling extremely relaxed.

When Tianhe Renmo saw how confident Qing Shui was, he seemed to feel a little more at ease as well. This was a very strange feeling. In the past, he would only feel this way if he was before elders in his clan but that feeling grew increasing faint as time passed. To think that he suddenly had this feeling again.

Just then, a male attendant from the Imperial Cuisine Hall walked up to them and said, “Physician, someone got me to pass this to you.”

Qing Shui had given the instructions earlier for this middle-aged man to handle the trifling issues concerning the Imperial Cuisine Hall. He was considered to be a steward. This person was originally only at Peak Martial King level but after Qing Shui had helped to bring his level up to the Martial Saint level, this man was now completely devoted and loyal to Qing Shui.

“Who was it?” Qing Shui took it and asked softly.

“Someone from Linghu Clan,” the man said seriously.

“Alright, I got it. You can help to pay a little more attention.”

The man went down. Qing Shui opened up the beast parchment. After reading it, he immediately handed it to Tianhe Renmo. This was a letter that Linghu Yu had given him.

It wrote that the Phoenix Dance Organization’s Left Custodian had disappeared and Cloud Flutter Organization might not be able to stop them and that Qing Shui should be careful. Linghu Clan and the Left Custodian’s status differed by a lot and even if he wanted to help, they didn’t seem to be able to.

“What should we do?” Tianhe Renmo put down the beast parchment and looked at Qing Shui.

Just then, Yun Yijian walked over. When he saw the beast parchment before Qing Shui and Tianhe Renmo, he said helplessly, “Old Master and the others have been held up by the people from the Phoenix Dance Organization. Within 15 minutes, Che Clan and the Left Custodian will be rushing over. Brother Qing, what should we do?”

“I thought that Cloud Flutter would be able to stop them,” Qing Shui said softly, not looking at Yun Yijian.

Yun Yijian’s face turned flushed red. Previously, he had even said confidently that they guaranteed that they would be able to hold back the Phoenix Dance. He hadn’t expected that the Left Custodian had held this matter in such high regard and didn’t even mind mobilizing so much manpower to hold back the obstacles in his way.

Qing Shui looked at Yun Yijian who appeared a little awkward. He knew that they weren’t trying any tricks. This situation was within Qing Shui’s expectation. He wasn’t a positive person and he would tend to assume the worst possible situation. He hadn’t expected that this time around, he was right.

Thankfully, at the most crucial moment, the Fire Bird went through a tremendous change, becoming a Hell’s Phoenix, a powerful False God demonic beast, an Immortal Demon. Moreover, it was a phoenix-type one.

“Since that’s the case, then we’ll face them head-on!” Qing Shui looked at Yun Yijian calmly and said.

“Alright, when that time comes, I’ll be the first one to attack.” Yun Yijian bit his lips and made a huge decision.

Qing Shui smiled, “The Old Master told you to listen to me. You guys can just continue to help to take care of the Imperial Cuisine Hall as well as my wife and the others.”

After sensing the surging emotions in Yun Yijian, Qing Shui no long held anything against him. After all, the Cloud Flutter Organization were a far cry from the Phoenix Dance Organization. If the Phoenix Dance Organization wished to hold back the Cloud Flutter Organization, it would be possible. In the past, the Cloud Flutter Organization had thought that the Left Custodian would be the only one involved. They were still capable of stopping the Left Custodian. However, if more and more people from the Phoenix Dance Organization got involved, it would be beyond them.

Eventually, it ended up that Cloud Flutter was the one which was held back by the Phoenix Dance and Qing Shui was left to face the Left Custodian and Che Clan…

There was less than 15 minutes, enough for only one cup of tea. Qing Shui poured himself a cup of tea. The tea was very hot. This temperature wouldn’t affect Qing Shui but appreciating tea was good for passing time.

Qing Shui held onto his tea cup and look into the distance. They were at the highest story and had a great view. Neither Tianhe Renmo nor Yun Yijian could calm down. They knew well how terrifying Che Clan and the Left Custodian were.

Qing Shui felt very calm. If Che Clan and the Left Custodian were to come, then there would be no need for them to go back anymore. The people from the Phoenix Dance Organization who had taken part in this matter could forget about getting off either.

Very quickly, when Qing Shui was halfway through his cup of tea, several tens of black dots had already appeared in the distance. The speed of the black dots was very fast and in the blink of an eye, arrived very close to them. Qing Shui drank up the last sip of his tea.

Many people from the opposing side saw that Qing Shui was still drinking tea and were all astonished. This kid could really put up a good act, to be acting calm despite being on the verge of death. Did he really think that he was invincible?

Of course, this was just what many people thought. No one said it out!

Qing Shui held onto the tea cup and assessed the great number opposite which was close to 100 people. Everyone was riding on a huge demonic beast. Although there were many different varieties, everyone had a ride.

The aura the opponents exuded was very strong, coming from several tens of False God cultivators, especially the several people in the lead. Qing Shui’s gaze landed on the old man who was standing in the middle but more toward the left.

The old man had an upright pose and only appeared to be slightly old. His clothes, with the prints of a green phoenix, made him stand out a lot. The old man appeared very calm and his gaze was very warm, without a hint of gleam in his eyes. However, Qing Shui could immediately tell that he was the Left Custodian.

It was a strange feeling. He was an existence like the light from fireflies, yet was more brilliant than the sun. His aura was very reserved and standing there, he seemed to have completely merged into the heaven and earth. It made it hard for one to find a flaw to attack him from.

There were four or five people next to the old man and these people were all more powerful than their beast rides. Although they weren’t as powerful as the old man with the phoenix print clothes but they were still terrifying existences. These people were all powerful experts from the Che Clan.

Many people at the back were all False God cultivators as well, though there were some who weren’t. Despite this, they would still be at least at Martial Emperor level. These people were the core pillars of the Che Clan. Without these people, Che Clan would cease to exist.

“You guys still came.” Qing Shui smiled at them and then gradually stepped onto the air, heading up.

“You’re very outstanding but it’s a pity that you stand out too much. If you could hold back for 100 years, there wouldn’t be anyone in the Dancing Phoenix Continent who would be able to stop you in your path.” An old man next to the old man wearing the green phoenix print clothes stepped forward.

“100 years? That’s too long. I cannot wait.” Qing Shui shook his head.

“You really surprise me. I don’t know how you can remain so calm now. Is it just because you are a Grade Two False God?” The old looked at Qing Shui, feeling very astonished.

“Being a Grade Two False God, I wiped out the entire Blood River Chariot Formation single-handedly. Don’t you think that the Grade Two False God that I am is different from other Grade Two False Gods?” Qing Shui smiled. This old man was muddled.

“Alright. I’m called Che Chi. At least I’ll let you find out whose hands you’re dying in.”

“You’re scared,” Qing Shui looked at this old man who was called Che Chi and said.

“Scared? What’s there for me to be scared of? There’s so many of us here. We’ll be able to blast you into smithereens.” Che Chi sounded a little proud. This proud feeling was an air of superiority coming from a great clan.

“Why did you bring along so many people? It goes to show that you’re afraid. Do you dare you take me on, one-on-one? Do you dare to take this Grade Two False God head-on by yourself?”

Qing Shui spoke with a valiant tone, his voice ringing out to the far distance. People within 100 li could all hear what he said. This made Che Chi’s countenance change.

When things goes wrong, there must be something strange. The more fearless Qing Shui appeared to be, the more the other party won’t be able to feel at ease. However, after seeing the old man wearing the green phoenix green clothes, he felt at ease.

“I’ll take you on for a round as you wish. I’ll let you know what absolute power is.” Che Chi took out two huge hammers and walked toward Qing Shui.

“Alright, this is how a man does things. You’re much better than Che Qi. Previously, the whole group of them tried to surround and attack me and yet they dare to shamelessly say that this is the tradition of aristocratic clans. You’re better than him. If everyone in the Che Clan was like you, then we wouldn’t have to face each other like this. They’re too arrogant and are just cowardly bastards.” Qing Shui commented on Che Chi seriously, while bringing down some other people in the Che Clan.
