AST 1748 - Level Eight Nine Continents Steps, Heart's Territory
The ladies knew that it was useless to object Qing Shui's decision. Therefore, they didn't continue any further. Right now, Muyun Qingge was already very powerful and at the very least, she was much stronger compared to the few demonic beasts that Qing Shui had left behind.
It was close to noon and Qing Shui decided to make a move right after lunch. Seeing that Qing Shui was in such a hurry, Luo Qingcheng felt a little touched, but she didn't try to say anything to Qing Shui.
Since even Luo Qingcheng didn't say anything, the others didn't either. Everyone felt very anxious and even if Qing Shui didn't say anything, Muyun Qingge would probably urge him to head off earlier.
They prepared a sumptuous meal, and although everyone tried to chat happily, there was still some melancholy. Therefore, the meal was over quickly.
After lunch, Qing Shui did a check on the formations here and left the Dark Phoenix, the Dragon Elephant, and Long Zhu`er behind. These demonic beasts were very powerful now and what's more important, they had powerful resistance to attacks. Two of them were control-typed demonic beasts while the Dark Phoenix could kill an existence that was on the same level as him as easy as cutting the grass. Even existences that were much stronger than they, wouldn't be able to hurt them.
Therefore, to a certain degree, the reason Qing Shui had kept them here was so that they could act as control-typed shields. Control type demonic beasts tend to be able to turn the tables around in an instant in many situations.
Qing Shui and Muyun Qingge bade the few ladies goodbye and went on their way. Their destination was the Sacred Ocean Sound Cave.
The Sacred Ocean Sound Cave was a dangerous area deep in the North Ocean. Qing Shui already had the map to the destination, but they must first pass through the deep sea domain. Therefore, the journey was very dangerous.
The two of them traveled rapidly toward the deeper region of the North Ocean. Although Qing Shui had the Paragon Water Shield, he still decided to use the Nine Continents Steps. The Nine Continents Steps could now be used in the ocean domain.
Qing Shui had no idea if there was any link to the Paragon Water Shield, but it was something to be happy about. After all, in the vast ocean domain, it'd be too disappointing if the Nine Continents Steps couldn't be used.
Thankfully, it didn't disappoint Qing Shui and he could now use the Nine Continents Steps. This truly made Qing Shui like a fish in the water when he was in the ocean domain.
A glow that only Qing Shui could see appear below Qing Shui's and Muyun Qingge's feet. Then, it encompassed the two of them, making them disappear like a flash from where they were, then teleporting them from time to time again.
Qing Shui's Nine Continents Boots had now surpassed its former-self by a lot. During such a long period of time, the Nine Continents Boots had leveled up by two levels.
Nine Continents Boots!
Refined from the world of the nine continents' Astral Fragments and Fantastic beasts of the nine continents, with a mysterious and unfathomable ability, it was at the level of a Divine Artifact.
One's speed is increased by ten folds, exhaustion reduced by ten folds. Even an Early Divinity could find it hard to destroy in the least. It also had the additional battle technique--the Nine Continents Steps.
Nine Continent Steps: Use the Nine Continent Boots to activate the Nine Continents Steps. The user will immediately reach over 10 million li away in a straight line. In the present realm, level 8, the Heart's Territory, it could be used 100 times daily.
All lifeforms that were within 500 meters could be brought along, including humans, demonic beasts, and others.
Prerequisite: False God level!
Qing Shui almost forgot that he had the Nine Continents Boots from a long time ago, which was now a Divine Artifact item. However, it only revealed to be at the seventh realm of the Divine Artifact level and nothing was shown before that.
With the Nine Continents Boots' Nine Continents Steps, Qing Shui wouldn't have that much pressure in his journey to the deep regions of the North Ocean. Otherwise, for him that needed to go and return within ten months, and still needed to find the Sacred Mudra Flower, the time wasn't enough at all. Right now, he could only depend on luck. With his current speed, he would probably take half a month to arrive at the Sacred Ocean Sound Cave.
After about 90 Nine Continents Steps, Qing Shui came to a stop. They had traveled a far distance from the Sunset Sea King Palace's domain. He was also left with only a few uses of the Nine Continents Steps and planned to leave them in case he needed to flee. After all, this place wasn't the same as the borders of the North Ocean.
This area was an endless stretch of ocean domain. Qing Shui took a look at the surroundings and didn't see life forms that were significantly powerful. There were some mountains, large-scaled sea beasts, fishes, and others. However, they were all scared off by Qing Shui's aura.
Muyun Qingge called out the White Jade Dragon.
The White Jade Dragon was now considered a true member of the dragon tribe now. Back then, it had been too weak and had ended up being suppressed by Qing Shui and tamed by Muyun Qingge. However, under Qing Shui's help and after consumed medicinal pills, Ancient Demonic Fruits, the Fortune Golden Pellet and others, its bloodline had improved by many folds and its abilities were also very terrifying now.
The huge White Jade Dragon moved rapidly in the water and Qing Shui and Muyun Qingge stood on its back, looking at the surroundings as they rapidly passed by fishes and water plants.
"Qing Shui, when will we reach the Sacred Ocean Sound Cave?" Muyun Qingge had no idea how far Qing Shui's Nine Continents Steps could travel each time, but she felt that it should be far.
"At most half a month. We might even be able to arrive in about ten days. That is if there aren't any accidents in between." Qing Shui gave it some thought and said.
Muyun Qingge was stunned. From the Sunset Sea King Palace to the deep regions of the North Sea... It should be the deep regions... The Sacred Ocean Sound Cave's location should be considered to be in the deep regions... Based on Muyun Qingge's anticipations, they would need to take more than two months at the very least before they could arrive at the Sacred Ocean Sound Cave. Luo Qingcheng could only wait for ten months. If they needed half a year to travel back and forth, they would only be left with less than four months to locate the Sacred Ocean Sound Cave. Therefore, she didn't wish to waste even a single day.
However, upon hearing that it would only take half a month or even about ten days, she was a little surprised. She was immediately filled with rejoice and looked at Qing Shui happily, "That's great! Our hopes will be a lot greater then."
"I'm really very worried. Are the chances of us finding the Sacred Mudra Flower high?" Right now, there was only Qing Shui and her, so she knew that Qing Shui would tell her the truth.
"Even if there isn't the Sacred Mudra Flower, I'll still think of a way to treat Qingcheng." Qing Shui gave it some thought and said.
Muyun Qingge knew the meaning behind Qing Shui's words. The chances of them finding the Sacred Mudra Flower was very low, very very low.
"Don't worry. I have the confidence." Qing Shui saw Muyun Qingge's dejected expression and consoled her.
"Sister Qingcheng has led a very hard life alone by herself. The three of us have been very close together for the past few years and have really become closer than actual sisters. I'm really afraid that I would lose any of them."
"Have you forgotten that I'm a miraculous physician?" Qing Shui smiled and said.
"I remember. You must promise me that you'll cure Sister Qingcheng." Muyun Qingge looked at Qing Shui.
Qing Shui, nodding, "With me around, I won't let any of you in danger."
Muyun Qingge smiled and avoided his gaze without a sound. She felt that her heart was beating very quickly when she looked at Qing Shui's sincere gaze.
"We'll rest here for a while today. Oh right, there's no need for us to be in too much of a hurry to go on our way. We have the Nine Continents Steps. We'll use this time to cultivate the Water Attribute Art or something. This will allow us to get stronger and help us to cope with the danger ahead." Qing Shui gave it some thought and said.
After Muyun Qingge knew of Qing Shui's powerful Nine Continents Steps, she nodded. After all, there was no need for them to worry about their travel pace now.
After setting up a tent and calling out the Dragon Slaying Beast and the Hell Nightmare Beast, Qing Shui then entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Divine Wood Essence!
Qing Shui cultivated the Divine Wood Essence. Back then, he had only taken a quick look at it and it was only now that he looked at it seriously and cultivated it.
