Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1248-1249
AST 1248 –Nine Yang Gold Needle Strengthen The Body. Qing Shui ingesting the Yang Pills.
Qing Shui's words surprised Eldest Princess. She only spoke slowly after looking at Qing Shui for quite a while: "I don't know about love."
For someone who didn't know about love. Would they find themselves able to believe in something of which they had not the slightest clue of what it was?
Actually, no one would actually dare to admit that they know about love. However, a lot of those who didn't have the slightest clue on what love was, believed in it. Or maybe, they were constantly trying to believe in love.
"I also don't know. But I believe in love." Qing Shui smiled and said.
"What is love?" Eldest Princess smiled when she finished speaking. She seemed to have talked about it before in the past. However, she still felt a bit lost on the subject. "The person who you look forward to seeing in your heart. Whenever you run into surprises, she will be the first person whom you think about and want to share with. You will hope for that person to be happy… You will hope that the person will only think of you…" Qing Shui smiled gently as he explained.
He didn't really know love. Hence, he only talked about the common emotions and feelings that one would feel in love. Or maybe, he only talked about how he felt when in love. He only wanted to help open up some of the windows in her heart and let her feel a new and unique side of the world.
Eldest Princess remained silent while listening to Qing Shui explain all about this. Only after this did she smile and reply: "Thank you. I seem to not have any of the features which you talked about in my heart. It's as though I used to have these kinds of thoughts a long time ago. However, I didn't really know when I started to lose all of these emotions."
Qing Shui also never expected things to turn out like this. After all, he had a lot of people which he missed in his heart. He was totally unable to understand how she felt. In the past, when he used to feel lonely, he still had his mother with him. At least there was still a shelter in his heart. However, since born, Eldest Princess was already the backbone of the royal family. Hence, she didn't have any shelter. Her master was most likely not considered one for now, or else, she wouldn't have this kind of extreme mindset.
"Actually, you can try to change. For example, try to believe in a person and share with him about your happiness as well as your worries,”Qing Shui said while smiling after thinking for a while. He was really serious about what he was saying now.
"I'm already trying really hard to do so. I am trying to have faith in others and have the kind of feelings which you mentioned just now." When Eldest Princess finished speaking, she glanced towards the two hands which Qing Shui was using to embrace her waist before looking towards Qing Shui.
"Oh, I see. I am actually so lucky," Qing Shui said with a smile.
"Don't start coming up with crooked thoughts. You'll see what happens if you do," Eldest Princess blushed. She looked unusually good like that. There was a trace of an alluring playful look which belonged to that of a woman added on to her expression.
"Sister Su, you are a goddess among humans. I am also a very pure person. Even at this time when I'm hugging you, I wouldn't harbor any lustful thoughts." Qing Shui immediately declared his position.
"Are you trying to say that I'm not attractive?" Eldest Princess asked angrily.
"No, how's that possible. Even if I were to harbor that kind of thought, I wouldn't express it. Actually, I am already starting to feel restless. However, this heroic heart of mine is trying to stop me. My heart is struggling in a battle between men and heavens. Shall I eat you up?" Qing Shui smiled and said. Actually, he was also able to tell that Eldest Princess was joking.
"Alright, here we go again. Why don't we start now? Didn't you say that you want me to calm down? I'm already really calm now." Eldest Princess said while looking at the little man who seemed really matured despite his young age. There was a kind of warmth in her eyes.
That warmth in her eyes stunned Qing Shui. Without himself noticing, he had already begun to hug her even tighter. He seemed to want to feel that warmth. However, he didn't actually do anything too excessive.
"Sister Su, lay down on your belly." Qing Shui pointed towards the bed in his room.
Eldest Princess couldn't help but blush. This time, it looked really obvious. It's just as she said, she was already trying her best to believe in Qing Shui… Laying down on the bed in front of a man…
Eldest Princess took off her boots. The snow white long socks were unable to cover the outlines of her beautiful feet. They looked dainty and delicate, tempting people to go ahead and play with it. Or maybe even kiss it. This wasn't actually because of problems related to foot fetishism, that was just a kind of temptation which was extremely delicate.
Eldest Princess laid down on the bed with her eyes slightly closed. Her extremely beautiful and graceful body was just being displayed right in front of Qing Shui. Her tied-up hair, as well as her long neck and perfect back which extended all the way to her butt… Together, they formed a fatally tempting butt curve.
Even though she had her clothes on, it was just an unlined garment. Qing Shui stood beside the bed and calmed down his mind. He took out a box of golden needles and put them at the edge of the bed. After that, he started slowly rubbing both of his palms to make his hands hot.
As he rubbed his palms, one of his palms started to look sparkling and translucent just like a jade. It seemed as though it was invisible. His other palm, on the other hand, shone with traces of faint golden light.
Maybe because the noises when Qing Shui rubbed his palms made Eldest Princess panic, she couldn't help but tremble. She opened a bit of her eyes and saw both of Qing Shui's palms. She only managed to calm down after doing so.
"Don't worry. Even if I were to take advantage of you, I would do it honorably. I would never do it sneakily," Qing Shui said seriously.
"You only know how to talk nonsense." Eldest Princess could already be considered to be immune to Qing Shui. She didn't seem to be against the way they talked.
Qing Shui dropped down both of his hands on Eldest Princess's pink back. It felt mild like jade. Even when there was a single garment in between, Qing Shui could still feel the extraordinarily good hand sensations. Even though Qing Shui wasn't a virgin, and he also has had a few extreme beauties whom he had laid his fingers on before, it didn't stop him from having his heart beating like a frisky monkey and his mind running wild like a cantering horse.
He mentioned before that he wouldn't take advantage of her sneakily. Hence, he hurriedly operated the Nine Yang Hand Techniques which he was familiar with as well as the Soft-Tendon Hand Technique. He used one of his hands to help her relax and numb her bones whereas he used the other one to help change everything within her body with his Nine Yang Force. He intended to upgrade her body function and help her make changes to her hidden potential.
At the moment when Qing Shui's hands interacted with Eldest Princess, he could already feel the Eldest Princess trembling. But very quickly, she regained her composure. Following that, her body started getting even softer. Similar things were also happening to her bones. Furthermore, Qing Shui could also see Eldest Princess clenching her teeth tightly. She was trying hard to not make any noises.
"You would feel more comfortable screaming it out."
As soon as Qing Shui's words came out, Eldest Princess let out a long and gentle moan. It sounded really beautiful and sweet.
Eldest Princess, on the other hand, she immediately covered her face with both of her hands.
Qing Shui was trying really hard to calm down his mind. This was because he was already starting to have erectile reactions towards it. He sped up the movements of his hands. Rubbing, tapping, grabbing as well as acupressure.
After roughly thirty minutes, Qing Shui only took out the Golden Needle and started performing his Acupuncture Technique.
However, the first thing he used was the Gold Needle Constitution Nurturing. After that, he used the Five Elements Acupuncture Power-up before finally settling down on the Extreme Yang Acupuncture. This kind of Nine Yang Acupuncture strengthening method was the toughest. Furthermore, his Needle Force would also get to be increased slowly until when her body reached its limit.
Qing Shui made Eldest Princess extend out one of her hands because four of her fingers had already started showing black colors. They looked incomparably terrifying. Qing Shui used an object to grab them before piercing through her fingertips with the needles.
The black blood dripped down drop by drop.
The stinky smell of the black blood was very strong. This caused Eldest Princess to feel really embarrassed. However, Qing Shui smiled and said: "The toxic within your body is already considered to be quite little. This is one of the impurities hidden deep within one's body. A lot of people would have it throughout half of their body. Once these get removed, the hidden potential within your body will be unlocked. By then, you will be able to increase your strength really fast."
After almost an hour, Qing Shui stopped and kept back his needles. Eldest Princess immediately ran back into the bathroom. Her body was already completely stained with sweat. That graceful body of hers could tempt someone to carry out criminal acts.
Qing Shui conveniently removed all the dirty blood and sprinkled the room with a bit of plum blossom from the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal to freshen up the air once again.
By the time Eldest Princess came out, about one hour had passed. Eldest Princess who changed into a new cloth had her hair untied, making herself out to seem a bit lazy. Her entire momentum felt really different. The otherworldly aura emitted from her body has gotten a lot stronger. It was comparable to that of Yiye Jiange's.
What's good was that her elegance has also gotten even stronger. As Qing Shui saw all of these, he already knew deep down that the result was quite decent. Her attitude had changed slightly.
Eldest Princess saw the paleness on Qing Shui's pale face. His room was no longer stained with dirty blood. Furthermore, it also smelled unusually nice.
"It's quite effective. You look more beautiful and stronger now." Qing Shui smiled and said.
"I feel like I'm becoming more and more indebted to you." Eldest Princess looked at Qing Shui and smiled.
Qing Shui knew that sooner or later, she was bound to say this. But this seemed a bit too fast for her to say it.
"Is it a lot?"
"Yes, it is. To the point I feel like I'm no longer able to pay you back anymore." Eldest Princess said seriously.
:Actually, if there really comes a time when you think that you can no longer pay back the favor, you can choose to stop getting indebted to me. That way, you wouldn't have to pay me back anything." Qing Shui smiled and said.
"Yes, but sometimes, I will still think about returning you the favor. Tell me, what can I do to do so?"
"Do you really want to return this favor to me?"
"Then help me give birth to a child."
"Why don't you just die…" Eldest Princess was speechless. She let out her hand and twisted Qing Shui's mouth with both of her hands. However, Qing Shui went on and hugged her again.
"Are you addicted to hugging me now?" Eldest Princess asked Qing Shui in confusion while looking at Qing Shui who didn't do anything too excessive.
"I feel that this kind of taking advantage is within your acceptable range."
Eldest Princess: "……"
After Eldest Princess left, Qing Shui entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal as it was already the second day.
The time within the realm was very dull. But Qing Shui was waiting for a chance, the right time for him to refine the energy. To Qing Shui, his battle last time against the Saint Child has brought to him a lot of benefits.
However, what Qing Shui wanted to do now was to take down the One and Two Yang Pills.
He didn't manage to eat it on time. But now, he finally had time to do so. Qing Shui has been having a feeling that both the One and Two Yang Pills would have unique effects towards him. He first swallowed the One Yang Pill.
A warm feeling emerged within his body and spread around his limbs and bones. Very quickly, he noticed that the bones within his body also seemed to be getting stronger little by little.
"Yes, it's quite beneficial to my Nine Yang Golden Body." Qing Shui was really excited.
Very quickly, he swallowed the other Two Yang Pill. The amount of strength which a One Yang Pill helped increased was one yang. However, his Nine Yang Golden Body seemed to have gotten stronger than before. Originally, it was supposed to already be at Great Perfection Stage, yet it increased once again.
This wasn't weird. There was no limit to the journey of martial arts. Hence, there would be stages even higher than Great Perfection Stage. Just like the Tiger Form which he cultivated in the past, once reaching the Great Perfection Stage, it also broke through quite a number of different stages.
Upon swallowing the Two Yang Pill, Qing Shui felt as if his entire body was shining with golden light. His meridians were widening. His entire body felt just like a container. And the volume of the container right now was increasing. His Dantian also seemed to be turning a bit vacant. The strength throughout his entire body was condensing down.

AST 1249 –Finally Refined, Formidable Strength, Powerful Controlling Ability
Qing Shui was really surprised as he felt the changes that took place in his body. This kind of situation would be beneficial for him in absorbing that powerful energy.
However, it didn't take long until he realized that the changes within his body began to slow down and was already coming to a stop. It had already helped him to increase his strength a little. This made him really excited because he could now consume ten One-Yang Pill and Two-Yang Pill respectively.
It was just that, he could only take one pill per year. However in his case, he only needed to wait for three days or a bit more until he could take another one. He wasn't really interested now to the force that the One-Yang Pill or Two-Yang Pill could increase, but rather, to the increase in the amount of strength which his body could contain.
This, in a way, was also considered to be raising his body's hidden potential.
"Yeah, Nine Yang Gold Needle!"
Qing Shui felt that he only let other people experienced this and had never tried it for himself before. However, he was the one who needed it the most at the moment. As Qing Shui thought about this, he immediately started activate it. It was fairly easy for him to inject the needles into himself.
He could also control the process of injecting needles with his spirit energy right away.Throughout this process, Qing Shui found himself in a state of incomparable surprise. The acupuncture had actually managed to increase his strength even more significantly than what the One-Yang Pill and Two-Yang Pill had brought.
While he sensed the changes that took place within his body, Qing Shui began to feel that he could refine the energy now. However, for safety purposes, he still decided to wait for one more month to refine it after he finished consuming the One-Yang Pills and Two-Yang Pills.
By the time when slightly more than a month had passed, Qing Shui believed that his position within the Heaven Secrets Academy would be even more stable. The headmaster might be able to see his hidden potential. Even though it wasn't to the extent that he would break through right away to become invincible, he would definitely become a lot more powerful than before at this time..
By then, he would be able to finally leave. The Heaven Secrets Academy would also help look after the Breezing Wind Veranda and his friends.
Qing Shui, who already had a plan, felt his whole being becoming even more relaxed. During this time, he planned to help the Eldest Princess and the others. At the moment, the Eldest Princess' strength could already be considered to be quite decent. He had already helped her unlocked quite a lot of her hidden potential this time. For someone at her age, she was definitely considered as an absolute genius. He believed that the old men from the Heaven Secrets Academy would not make things difficult for her.
Just like this, other than guiding them through their cultivation, Qing Shui would also walk around the areas near the Heaven Secrets Academy. He remembered the things which the old man had mentioned before, about the strongest force within the Western Oxhe Continent being around 8,000 sun. Then, it was very likely that the Heaven Secrets Academy already had the same strength, or maybe even more.
Considering that the Heaven Secrets Academy was able to stand at the same grade as the two dynasties in terms of strength, this just meant that their strength was almost equal to the others. Otherwise, they wouldn't have lived in balance with each other. Qing Shui was aware that anyone would want to rule a continent, it was just that no one actually had the strength to do so.
Qing Shui felt very far away from the 8,000 sun of strength every time he thought about it. Could 8,000 sun of strength be considered as a False God?
The False God realm was equivalent to being a god across the land. The power it possessed was incomparably frightening, and seemed like it wouldn't be so easy to break through to it. It was still unknown whether the Western Oxhe Continent had cultivators at the False God Realm.
The lands within a thousand Li of the Heaven Secrets Academy were all it's territory. The mountains nearby had different heights and extended over a thousand miles. In the morning, whenever QIng Shui was free, he would stroll around nearby to look at the scenery.
There were lakes, a small sea, rivers, forests, as well as mountains nearby. The land was filled with many things. A bit further away from here, there was a path that lead to the Desolate Mountain Regions. Deep within that area was actually very risky. There were even rumors that said that once a person passed through it, he or she would be able to arrive at the other five continents. There were also sayings that this place was connected to the other three continents.
There were also specific ways to travel to the Soaring Dragon Continent, Dancing Phoenix Continent, as well as the Haohan Continent. To do so, he would need to pass through extreme lands. The Western Oxhe Continent was actually an intersection point between the five continents and the other three continents. This was also why back then, he could only arrive at the Western Oxhe Continent through the Ancient Great Formation.
Qing Shui felt that if he had the chance, he would definitely ask how he could head to the other three continents.
In the blink of an eye, almost a month had passed. Within this one month, Qing Shui and the others hardly interacted with the outside world. They all cultivated ardously and all of them made decent progress.
Qing Shui felt somewhat excited. This was because he felt that the time was right for him to refine the powerful energy. Once he refine it, he would earn a huge asset for himself.
Qing Shui had already helped Yan Jinyu, the Seventh Princess, as well as Qing Sha with acupunctures. However, he controlled the needles through the air with his Spiritual Energy. He didn't touch any of them from the beginning until the end. This made the Eldest Princess, who was also present, to keep staring at him.
Qing Shui could feel the Eldest Princess' stare and he could only smile in response: "This is something which I just improved. I wasn't able to do it before."
Naturally, the Eldest Princess didn't believe him.
Even the Eldest Princess herself was shocked with the changes that took place in herself at the moment. She noticed that she didn't feel repelled to this little man at all. So much that she wouldn't even feel angry if he took some advantage from her. She didn't know what kind of feeling she had towards him. Could it be considered as a close buddy?
After Qing Sha and the girls left, Qing Shui held the Eldest Princess' hands and went for a walk together. This was the changes which took place throughout this month. Now, Qing Shui could hold the hand of a beautiful woman as he wished, as well as walked and talked with her inside the courtyard.
To be specific, Qing Shui himself also didn't know since when it started. Furthermore, the Eldest Princess didn't seem to repel against it as well. Slowly, it seemed like they had even gotten used to it. Other than this, they would at most hug each other, which rarely happened. They don't have any interactions even closer than these.
"You have been letting everyone cultivate really hard lately. Is anything wrong? Are you about to leave?" the Eldest Princess strolled around slowly while holding his hands. She looked to the side and asked him.
"Yes, I should be leaving soon. I will know the answer within these two or three days. Now, your strength is improving steadily. Can you help guide them as well?" Qing Shui asked after he thought for awhile.
"I will. Are you going to divine Might Dynasty?"
"Yes." Qing Shui responded. He didn't say anything more.
"I wish all the best for you. Once your wife comes back, we can't stay like this anymore." The Eldest Princess smiled while she raised both of their hands that were holding each other.
"As long as you don't get married, this is still fine……"
Qing Shui treated her like his bosom buddy, his own soulmate. It’s just that he didn’t know how long it could last.
At night, Qing Shui entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. He felt excited at the moment as he could finally refine the energy which the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant paid back to him. The vacant feeling within his body had already expanded almost half its original size.
Additionally, the toughness of his meridians had also increased. Qing Shui felt that he had made enough preparation and couldn’t wait to refine it. This way, he felt that he would have his own assets to do things which he wanted.
He adjusted his strength to its peak state and revolved the strength within his body. He waited until he calmed down to immediately circulate his strength and pierce through the grey energy pill.
Qing Shui's forehead, the top of his head, as well as his chest were all injected with three Gold Needles. A formidable force gushed in and it almost made Qing Shui faint. Waves after waves of fresh aura started exuding from the top of his head, his chest, as well as his forehead to keep his mind awake and ensure his blood flowed smoothly. The Yin-Yang Image also revolved at a never-before-seen fast speed.
The energy raged through his entire body. The Seven Colored Pellet was also revolving very quickly, as it constantly absorbed the energy. Simultaneously, the Golden Pellet was also constantly enriching itself.
The Nine Continents Mountain within his Dantian was also absorbing the energy. It seemed to have an even deeper connection with Qing Shui now.
Qing Shui's body once again experienced another cleansing, and once again experienced another rebirth. However, it was a lot safer compared to last time. At least, Qing Shui felt that he could control it.
It was still dangerous like before, but Qing Shui's meridians and tendons had improved significantly, added on that it was just too much powerful than before.
However this time, it seemed like the energy he was absorbing was also much more in quantity. It was just that it felt less difficult than before, as after all, his strength back then was too weak. It was just too dangerous for him to try and take in so much energy forcefully. Even thinking about it now made him felt really terrified. If it wasn’t for his Force of Rebirth, there wouldn’t be anything that he could do.
Everyone was born a gambler and Qing Shui was cleary one. Just like now, what he was doing was already a bit like gambling.
Time flowed by and Qing Shui didn't know how long it has been. At first, the entire process was filled with extreme danger, but as things progressed, he began to slowly take hold of the energy until he managed to calm it down eventually. Now, it could be already considered that he had completely refined it.
Qing Shui let out a long sigh and slowly opened both of his eyes. He had a neutral expression and looked really calm, just like a normal person. However, he also possessed a kind of momentum unable to be described in words.
He had completely transformed. Now, a calmness and confidence flowed from him. However, it also wouldn’t give people the impression that he lacked sharpness.
Qing Shui felt a bit of pain as he looked at the blood clots which condensed from the blood throughout his body. This was all his own blood, but when he remembered that these were all the filthy and extra substances within the blood in his body, and that leaving it inside would only bring disadvantages for him, he felt more at ease.
After he took a shower, Qing Shui then changed into a new cloth and conveniently destroyed the clothes stained in blood. After only doing these did he quickly went on to sense the changes within his body.
Raw strength was worth one sun…..
Even though Qing Shui could feel the dramatic increase of his strength within his body, at the moment when he tried to sense the total amount of increase in his strength, he was still got shocked by it. One sun was equivalent to 10,000 nimbus. Prior to this, he was only someone with a strength worth around 3,000 nimbus.
What concept was this? His strength actually increased by around 6,000+ nimbus.
At the moment when Qing Shui sensed the Seven-Colored Pellet, he got stunned once again. It went up from the original 15 folds increase in raw strength to 20 folds increase in raw strength……
Qing Shui could feel the changes currently taking place within his body. The surging strength within his body made him felt really amazed. As soon as he sensed it, he smiled. If his raw strength, which was already worth one sun on its own, was combined with the 20 folds increase provided by the Seven-Colored Pellet and the five folds increase provided by his weapons, along with things like the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation and the Golden Pellet, he would already achieve a strength worth around 1,000 sun. If he used the Nine Continents Mountain, it would be slightly even higher than 2,000 sun.
Qing Shui was stunned. He was way too surprised from this sudden burst of his strength. Following the increase in his strength, he could already start to do a lot of things.
What Qing Shui looked forward the most was his spirit energy. Under the effects of the Arhat Rosary Beads, his weapons, the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation, as well as his divine Nebula Formation, it managed to achieve a strength worth around a 1,300 sun. If he used the Roc's Might, it would achieve a strength worth almost 2,700 sun.
If the 20% chance of doubling the attack's prowess were to be met, it would be even more terrifying. However as of now, Qing Shui had already begun to neglect it. After all, it needed a fixed chance for it to happen. It couldn't really be considered a part of his strength. But now, with this strength of his combined with Emperor's Qi and the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, dealing against a warrior with a strength worth 3,000 sun or more no longer posed a problem. Even a warrior with a strength worth 4,000 sun, Qing Shui also felt that he would be able to deal with it.
Despite the fact that Qing Shui's Eight-eight divine Nebula Formation didn't help to increase his strength, it helped to increase the toughness, sharpness, and so on of some of the substances contained within his spirit energy attacks by multiple folds. For example, his Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines. Even if it was to bind itself now around a warrior with 5,000 sun of strength, it would still be able to control the warrior for a period of time. This was the effect of the Eight-eight divine Nebula Formation.
It could even increase the devouring power of the Spiral Blackhole of his Tidal Cloud Waves Seal.
