AST 1109 –Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl, The Changes Of The Emperor's Qi Pellet
"There we have it. Beitang Clan has brought malice upon themselves. We don't need to do anything else. Only when the time is right, will we show ourselves and take control of everything into our hands," the lesser old man said with a smile as he adjusted his clothes.
"So you're saying we don't need to involve ourselves anymore? Like warning Yinyue and the other clans from making careless moves?" the old man said sternly, with a serious expression still plastered on his face.
"There's no need for that. Did you take the other clans for fools? They will not help the Beitang Clan in their cause. Whatever outcome will come of this –be that Beitang Clan successfully destroys that kid or the other way around –do you think they will turn hostile on so many of us? Besides, that malice of the Beitang Clan is impossible to be shaken away that easily," the head of Yi Clan said as he bellowed with a laughter.
"Head clan, that fellow Qing Shui swore that he would wipe out the entire Beitang Clan and destroy the Lion King's Ridge. If he is serious about his claims about exterminating the Beitang Clan, what are we going to do?" asked the old man known as Mengyuan.
"You don't have to worry about that. Even though this malice of theirs is strong and brutal, he's not the type to kill innocent people. He will not stoop to the point of destroying the entire Lion King's Ridge because he isn't the type to kill everyone without sparing a few lives. Even if he did have the power to annihilate everyone, he would never do that. However, he will definitely destroy the Beitang Clan if given the chance to do so," the head of Yi Clan said with utmost confidence.
"I still don't get what kind of family would create such a young man like him. Head clan, do you think Beitang Clan will use the ace up their sleeve?" said Mengyuan cautiously.
"That's quite hard to tell. If Beitang Clan is close to being annihilated, perhaps they will do so in a frenzy." The head of Yi Clan felt a chill down his spine the moment he said those words.
"That old fool from the Beitang Clan doesn't have much time to live. He has at most a hundred years more. The Lion King's Ridge will be under Yi Clan's rule eventually. Here's to hoping that nothing drastic will change after this," said Mengyuan as he sighed with dismay.
"Nothing is clear right now. Who knows, maybe the appearance of Qing Shui will allow our Yi Clan to control the Lion King's Ridge much earlier than expected," said the head of Yi Clan as he returned to his usual demeanor.
The pond was clear with mostly redfish and tunas swimming contentedly while occasionally splashing about to dispel the quietness that lingered in the courtyard, which could be heard quite clearly.
"No one in the Beitang Clan will be able to sleep soundly tonight…"
Qing Shui and the others stayed on the entire last floor of the inn, which they promptly booked during their arrival. He wasn't afraid that the men from Lion King's Ridge would come for them since he had placed several demonic beasts outside to guard them. After he was settled with the guard duties, he went straight into the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Moreover, he had already put down a formation in mid-air right on the entire last floor. The Formation Flag that was floating in the air would stall for some time should anyone enter the floor and trigger the formation.
Qing Shui looked at the Interspatial Silk Sachets on the ground inside the realm and opened them up one at a time. The precious medicinal herbs, crafting materials and medicinal pellets were aplenty. There were some items that he was unfamiliar with and he didn't know what they could be used for. In any case, these items must be useful if his opponents had kept them safely inside the sachets.
However, he was curious as to why he couldn't find any low level Sacred Beast Pills inside these Interspatial Silk Sachets. It would be reasonable if he could find at least one bottle but alas, there were none.
At that moment, he realized that the low level Sacred Beast Pills might have been more precious than he had previously thought.
What kind of item was this?
Qing Shui looked at the ancient bottle that was the size of his fist on his hand. There were ancient patterns inscribed on the bottle but no words were to be found. However, Qing Shui had an indescribable feeling as he observed the bottle. He gathered from the bottle that it must have existed for a very long time.
The bottle was sealed completely. Qing Shui wouldn't know what it was because of the lack of words inscribed on the bottle. He thought about it for a moment before he decided to open the bottle. At that moment when the bottle was opened, a wave of cool air flowed out. The cool air contained a stench of domineering aura as well.
Qing Shui took a peek into the bottle and found that it contained a violet pearl. The pearl was crystal clear and undeniably enticing as a strong spiritual aura fluctuated within it. It was as big as the tip of his pinky finger.
Heavenly Vision Technique!
At that moment, Qing Shui couldn't resist checking on this item. He could tell from the bottle that this item was something of the peculiar sort.
Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl!
"What kind of item is this?"
Qing Shui continued to examine further with uncertainty.
If a human were to consume the pearl, the purity of their bloodline would be improved, further condensing the Violet Golden Blood Essence of the bloodline to increase the cultivator's overall power. The amount of power gain would be dependable on the cultivator's personal attributes. However, one would not be able to gain an amount greater than 20% of their overall power. In addition to that, the said cultivator would have a certain chance of acquiring a miraculous effect from the pearl itself.
Most importantly, only human cultivators were allowed to consume the pearl, albeit only one pearl per person!
Bloodline Pearl? Qing Shui was shocked beyond words. It wasn't because he hadn't heard of this item before but he actually knew that this was the legendary seed of the Violet Golden Bloodline, which could allow a human to contain a fraction of the Violet Golden Bloodline. It would be miraculous indeed but these were all just legends –until now. The pearl was real and it was now in front of Qing Shui.
The Violet Qi Pellet Qing Shui had refined long ago caused a few violet colored spots to appear inside his body. He could feel an intense energy emanating from these spots, yet he could not tell what they were exactly. After sensing the pearl for a while, he decided to try consuming it. In any case, he had the Nature Energy, so there was no need to fear that the pearl could be poisonous.
After he had swallowed the Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl, he sat down immediately by crossing his legs and began to circulate the divine force to hasten the absorption of the pearl into his Dantian and into his bloodstream!
After this process, the purity and strength of the blood cells would be enhanced according to the consumer's body system, allowing the bloodline of the consumer to improve as well. The blood of the consumer would be strengthened in terms of quality, harnessing an amount of energy far greater than before.
The blood cells in his body began to act up like a pot of boiling water, circulating around his body in an agile manner. Through his Inner Sight, Qing Shui discovered that the violet spots in his bloodstream had multiplied to a greater amount.
Suddenly, the pellet that had coagulated from the Emperor's Qi inside his Dantian began to circulate quickly, emanating an expanse of qi throughout his body. This caused Qing Shui to wonder if the Emperor's Qi would be able to reach a breakthrough at this particular moment.
The Emperor's Qi Pellet moved for a split second, expanding its volume to a size one third bigger than its original. Then at that moment, a thought popped into Qing Shui's sea of consciousness.
The ability to debuff a target by 20% was still there –that did not change but now he was able to increase his overall capabilities by 20%!
20% of that amount was equivalent to nearly 5000 stars, which was nothing compared to Qing Shui's four million stars of attacking power. However, there was something more to the Emperor's Qi than just increasing 20% of his overall power.
The Emperor's Qi was quite domineering as it could be harnessed into his attacks. Even though the attack power would still remain the same, the imposing manner of the attack would be changed drastically. Qing Shui knew the aura would be strong and overbearing, which would be similar to the pressure of the law of heaven and earth
Could it be that the Emperor's Qi had reached such a miraculous level? The Emperor's Qi was also violet in color, so could the Emperor's Qi Pellet be considered to have reached a breakthrough? However, would the Emperor's Qi debuff the opponent's overall power forever?
Qing Shui was dubious about the ability, yet this wasn't the time to think about it now. On another note, the Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl allowed Qing Shui to gain about a thousand stars of power, which wasn't a lot like he had expected. Otherwise, he would be able to gain nearly 5,000 stars of power. However, a thousand stars wasn't that bad either. At least that was because of his body constitution. In any case, he would go to the ladies to test how much power they could gain later.
At this critical moment, Qing Shui's power was able to improve further. His spiritual attack could reach up to 500,000 stars and he could push the limit of his body felt by the law of heaven and earth toward 200,000 stars. If the 20% chance buff was a success, then it would be a little bit more than 400,000 stars. The Nine Continents Mountain could unleash about 400,000 stars and his speed was increased as well.
When the time inside the realm was nearing its end, he quickly went to wash himself before returning to his room. The atmosphere outside was quiet and it was already the next day. If everything went well today, the matters with the Lion King's Ridge would be settled in no time.
Qing Shui's room was the closest to Yiye Jiange's room, so he went over and knocked on her door. It was already midnight, so he wasn't sure if she had slept or not.
"Who is it?" Yiye Jiange's voice rang out. The elegance in her tone was as refined as ever.
Qing Shui was surprised for a moment and quickly replied, "It's me!"
When Yiye Jiange heard his voice, she jumped. Luckily, Qing Shui couldn't see her expression, so she replied him, albeit slightly nervous and said, "I'm already asleep, is there a matter?"
"Well, dear madame, I'm not going to eat you, if that's what you're thinking. Why are you turning against me like I'm some kind of a wolf? I did tell you that I will wait until you're willing to let me eat you. My words are definitely true. If not, I will swear to the heavens…"
Before he could finish, the door bursted open suddenly. Yiye Jiange who was already in her sleeping gown pulled him into the room and closed the door quickly. "What kind of damn fool chatters away in front of the door in the middle of the night…."
Yiye Jiange said with an angry expression.
Qing Shui chuckled and said: "I didn't think you could open the door that fast. Well, I get to see something nice, so…"
"What do you want from me, spill it out!" Yiye Jiange wanted to laugh despite being angry with him. She didn't know why she was nervous in the first place either.
Qing Shui looked at the graceful outline of the silhouette draped under her sleeping gown and noticed that her breasts were quite firm and proportional in dimension. He thought they were already exquisite despite being covered by her outer clothings in usual days. However, this time they were different –not only were her breasts finely perked, the dimension of her breasts seemed bigger than usual.
"My dear, I noticed that you look more beautiful wearing this particular set of clothing. Some parts look bigger," Qing Shui chuckled as he stared at her chest area.
"Are you looking for a fight? Don't forget what you said before. A promise is a promise," said Yiye Jiange as she gave him a dirty look. She didn't plan on wearing another layer of clothes because she didn't mind donning her sleeping gown in front of him. She also realized that she didn't harbor any ill feelings toward his words earlier. She could sense something else in his words that made her unable to get angry at him.
"Relax, I'm not going to eat you. Hugging is still fine, right?"
As soon as those words left his mouth, he extended his hands and embraced her into his arms immediately. The sleeping gown was thin, so he could sense the buoyancy and smoothness of her breasts on his chest. The subtle fresh fragrance of her body traveled to his nose –a smell that he liked a lot. All women have their own scent. The women he liked and their scents were all his favorite kind.
The scent of a woman would always correlate to a certain type of body fragrance. Of course, not every woman in the world would possess a natural body fragrance that smelled pleasant. However, most women would use some kind of perfume to mask their scent whereas only a handful would smell naturally pleasant without the use of artificial odors. The women surrounding Qing Shui had their own bodily scents that were subtle and graceful –perhaps their unique body constitutions determined what their scents would smell like.
The subtle fragrance drove Qing Shui into a trance of nostalgia as he pressed his lips against hers while closing his eyes slightly as if heavily intoxicated. The beauty in his arms was warm to his touch. He could even feel the softness of her body despite a layer of sleeping gown draped over her silhouette.
His breathing had gone a bit abnormal, especially being pressed with the sensation of her supple breasts. The smoothness of his touch behind her back was something that he had been fond of, unable to part his hands away from her polished skin.

AST 1110 –Mighty and Mysterious Violet Bloodline, The Stone Woman
His breathing sounded a bit uneven, especially when his chest was being pressed with the sensation of her supple breasts. The smoothness of the hands behind his back caused him to feel a bit reluctant to let go.
As Qing Shui abruptly hugged Yiye Jiange, she panicked. She felt a bit stuffy and panicked being hugged by Qing Shui. However, it seemed like she wasn't that surprised by it and did not struggle to break away from it. In fact, she slowly embraced Qing Shui's neck with her arms, her neck and face turning pink as she did so.
Qing Shui didn't actually make any moves that were over the line. Men should always keep their promises, even if it were something which men and women should not be too serious about. He still knew that his relationship with her would only improve significantly once he destroys Beitang Clan. If he didn't do it, it would be very hard for them to have a happy ending.
It wasn't that Qing Shui was unable to win her heart over unless he destroyed Beitang Clan. In fact, everything had basically already been decided by now. Yiye Jiange was already considered to be his wife. The only thing was, the burden in her heart would never disappear so long as the Beitang Clan existed. This being the case, she would never be able to experience true happiness.
If one couldn't gain true happiness and always had a heavy burden in their heart, they wouldn't be their true selves. This was also why she had never been involved in any intimate feelings between men and women for so many years.
This was also considered a punishment god gave her. She had an incomparably beautiful face and a clever mind on top of that. She came from an excellent background as well. Although she was met with difficulties halfway through her life, the most important thing was that the experience gave her a persevering heart.
If it had been others, they would have to readjust their mindset and forget about vengeance if they still wanted to continue living, since they weren't able to avenge their family. Only through this would they be able to live happily;only then would they be able to get themselves into a new lifestyle. With her physical appearance, it was just way too easy for her to become rich.
However, she was unable to do it. At the time of her first encounter with Qing Shui, she never expected for the man whom she regarded as average to climb up to such great height one day. Most importantly, in regards to the vengeance that she had unintentionally told him, he actually managed to listen to all of them and kept it in his heart.
Back then, she and the Skysword Sect had aided him once. But to her and the Skysword Sect, it was just a simple assistance that they had provided to a person. That time, however, her help for Qing Shui was prominent. Qing Shui was a person who would pay someone back a favor in full, even if they had only aided him in a small way.
What surprised her was the fact that they would actually fall in love with each other. Even though their feelings were something that grew overtime, she herself could not place exactly when her heart had left a spot for him.
"Jiange, even I, myself, feel like this is all a dream." Qing Shui raised his head and smiled, looking at the gorgeous beauty in front of him.
"Why?" Yiye Jiange glanced at Qing Shui.
"The first time I saw you, you were as pure as an angel. This stopped me from having irreverent and disrespectful intentions against you. That was why I called you my master at that time. Back then, I was perfectly happy to be your disciple. Even if I had one day ended up being stronger than you, I would still protect you as your disciple." Qing Shui suddenly remembered his time back in Hundred Miles City.
Yiye Jiange smiled: "Damned brat, the way you compliment people is special. No wonder all of them were deceived by you."
"Why does no one believe me when I'm telling the truth? To be honest, at that time, I really did think that someone as beautiful as you would have belonged to someone else. I never thought that one day, I would be able to have you by my side." Qing Shui was straightforward with his words.
"So even you have times when you're in doubt." Yiye Jiange was blushing as she revealed a smile. Now, she looked more relaxed. She was calmly embracing the man and telling him things she never thought she would have said in the past.
"Where can I possibly find my confidence at that time facing an extreme beauty like you? I believe at that time, you must have treated me as a child as well. Otherwise, how would you have ended up being my master?" Qing Shui chuckled.
"Do not ever talk about this in the future……" Yiye Jiange extended her hand and pulled his ear.
"Then is it ok if I start calling you younger sister Jiange from now on?" Qing Shui laughed and continued on speaking.
"Alright, why were you looking for me? Don't tell me, it's just for……" Yiye Jiange didn't really want to continue being entangled to that problem with Qing Shui. "Of course not! Eat this!" Qing Shui took out an unadorned medicinal bottle and gave her a pill. He has tried it prior to this, nothing bad would happen.
"What's this?" Yiye Jiange looked at the purple pill in her palm and asked in a confused tone.
"Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl. Try it. I have already taken in one and the effect is quite good."
Yiye Jiange stopped questioning any further and ate the pill. After that, she sat on the carpet with her legs crossed while Qing Shui looked at her from the side to oversee her cultivation.
A hundred stars worth of strength!
What amazed Qing Shui was that it actually helped increase her strength as much as a hundred stars. It shared the same effect as the Hallow Pill. Even though the strength with which the Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl increased couldn't exceed more than twenty percent of one's raw strength, Qing Shui could feel that its effect would be more beneficial the stronger one was. Just like himself, even though it increased less than twenty percent of his strength, it still managed to help boost it as much as a thousand stars.
Upon absorbing the Dragon's Qi, the girls experienced a boost which was more than one time their raw strength. Not only so their strength has recently been increasing at an unusually fast pace. Twenty percent of their raw strength was worth more than a hundred stars. Nevertheless, Qing Shui was already quite satisfied with a hundred stars worth of strength. After all, it couldn't exceed beyond twenty percent of their raw strength. It was already considered quite effective.
Yiye Jiange looked at Qing Shui in shock. This man has really given her quite a lot of surprises.
With his spiritual sense, Qing Shui was also able to sense the purple colored droplets within her blood. These purple droplets were actually still her blood, and were just like blood essence, each drop equivalent to about hundred to thousands of normal blood. This was the difference about it. It helped raise the purity of one's blood as well as the purity of their qi.
Only after having experienced these purple droplets in his body himself did Qing Shui understand why people that possessed Golden Bloodline and Violet Golden Bloodline were so formidable. This was a kind of strength of bloodline and strength of bone structure.
Qing Shui never thought thin, purple strands would start forming in his blood. These were all formed as a result of violet-colored blood droplets condensing together. Actually, they were still just small purple dots. His bones started to take on a faint, golden color. To him, these phenomenons were not considered too abnormal.
He had checked out quite a few history books about the Violet Golden Bloodline. For example, when one got injured and started bleeding, people with Violet Golden Bloodline would not immediately bleed purple-colored blood. It would only begin to appear after their normal blood flowed to a certain extent. In fact, it would only show up towards the end, which also meant that bleeding purple blood would signal that one's life was at stake. Additionally, people with Violet Golden Bloodline would not have a body full of purple-colored blood. Instead, their bodies would only condense purple-colored blood droplets within their bloodstream.
Can the Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl be condensed into Violet Gold Blood Essence? Would it produce more and more violet-colored blood droplets alongside one's increase in cultivation?
After thinking for a while, Qing Shui decided that the Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl was a great help to everyone and everything was settled. He stopped thinking about other things. In any case, this was also considered one way of optimizing bloodlines.
Qing Shui suddenly recalled that his mother and the others had swallowed the Crippling divine Pill. However, they all eventually rose up to Xiantian Grade because of the Xiantian Golden Pill. It seemed that not all medicinal pills were absolute. Who knew if the Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl would be able to remove the side effects of the Xiantian Golden Pill.
After leaving Yiye Jiange's room, he continued moving on to other rooms and fed them the Violet Golden Bloodline Pearl. It would be beneficial if they could further raise their strength at this time.
Qing Shui had planned to do other things at first, but by the time he finished going through all the rooms, the sky had already turned bright. The last room that he went into was Wenren Wu-shuang's room. As he watched Wenren Wu-shuang finish up her practice, he did not really feel any evil intentions. However, she seemed to have something on her mind that she found difficult to talk about. If not, she would not have stopped him after he had basically removed all of her upper clothing and kissed her soft breasts. He could feel that she has already fallen for him, and it was not that she was unable to accept him. So why would she stop him? He had been waiting for her to confess the reason.
Suddenly, Wenren Wu-shuang stood up and hugged Qing Shui.
Her action stunned Qing Shui. Looking at the gorgeous beauty who was tightly cuddling him, he could sense that her inner energy was incredibly unstable. It was as if her thoughts were undergoing a very intense struggle.
"Wu-shuang, what do you want to say? Just be upfront. In any case, you are only allowed to be my woman in this lifetime of yours. What is there to hide from me?" Qing Shui hugged her and said gently. But he sounded really serious when he said it.
Wenren Wu-shuang thought about all the things that they had gone through together. What was more, he had also let her tame the Golden Cauldron Spirit Crane not long ago. Ever since her sister passed away, there have been no one in this world who treated her as well as Qing Shui did, let alone the fact that she, herself, was in love with him. This was supposed to be one of the best things that could happen, yet she had her own difficulty, the difficulty of a woman.
"I love you, but I can't be your wife. I will forever be your wife in name. However,… and it's not because I have fallen for other men…" As Wenren Wu-shuang spoke, she started crying.
"Wu-shuang, is anything wrong? Tell me about it." Qing Shui was certainly aware that it is not because she had fallen for other men. In fact, she had also made it clear herself. He, too, felt her feelings for him, but was unable to figure out what difficulty she had.
"I'm a Stone Woman!" Wenren Wu-shuang lowered her head and said softly."
Qing Shui stunned. After that, he smiled: "And here I thought it was something really serious. Have you forgotten that I'm a doctor? Curing people is an easy job for me."
Qing Shui knew a thing or two about Stone Women. There were a few differences between the Stone Women in this world and the Stone Women from his past incarnations. In this world, there were three kinds of Stone Women: the first kind being those that had no feelings involved. When a man and woman did not have intimate feelings for each other, they end up being ridiculously cold to each other. The second kind were those whose private parts were like stones. For this kind of women, no matter how fierce a man could be, they would just end up too deep in tears. As for the third kind, the third kind was known as the "Poisonous Corpse". It meant that the women had too high a concentration of Yin Energy. Sometimes, it could be so concentrated to the point where it would faintly condense into Yin Energy Fire, capable of burning anything which entered it. That wasn't all. The victim might even end up throwing their life away.
"Qing Shui, I'm serious. Will you be angry with me?" Wenren Wu-shuang asked Qing Shui while looking at him.
"Angry with you? Why should I be angry with you?" Qing Shui hugged her tightly.
"I can't help you give birth to a child… I want a child……" Wenren Wu-shuang sounded very, very depressed.
"Who said so? Do you not believe in what your husband can do? Are you the kind with Yin Energy Fire?" Qing Shui whispered by her ear.
Qing Shui was able to sense it. Her body physique belonged to the type superior to that of even the Nine Yin Body. Despite so, it would not cause any flaws in her life. In the World of the Nine Continents, both her condition as well as the Nine Yin Body were considered a type of "Stone Women".
For women with Nine Yin Bodies, their problem could be solved by running into men with Nine Yang bodies. As for a woman with the body of Yin Energy Fire, otherwise known as the Nine Yin Fiery Body, even Nine Yang Bodies seemed to be insufficient in matching their Yin Energy.
But now, not only was Qing Shui a Nine Yang Body, he possessed the Nine Yang Golden Body at Small Success Stage. If his Nine Yang Golden Body could manage to reach Large Success Stage, it might end up being compatible with the Yin Energy within her body.
"Yeah!" Wenren Wu-shuang lifted up her head and looked at Qing Shui. Maybe because the issue was related to her body, she could not care less about feeling shy.
