Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1254-1255
AST 1254 –One Against Ten, Incapable Of Withstanding Even A Single Blow. Forging The Big Dipper Sword Once Again
Qing Shui slowly rotated his palm around her jade peaks. He tried to thoroughly experience the softness and smoothness, while his other hand was placed right at her well-rounded bottom. He looked at her tender and alluring face in mesmerization.
"Have you had enough?" the Eldest Princess' eyes looked really charming. It appeared really elegant and appeared to be a bit misty.
"No, I will never feel satisfied. Be my woman." Qing Shui's face was a bit red due to blood congestion as he was trying to hold himself back. Nevertheless, he still asked her seriously.
"You haven't made me reach the point where I want to be your woman. Don't force me." the Eldest Princess said gently.
"But you have fallen for me." Qing Shui moved his body as a way to show that he was thirsting for her.
"Could it be that you only want me for my body? If that's the case, I can give it to you now. After that, we will no longer know each other. Do you want it?" the Eldest Princess looked at Qing Shui seriously.
"What do you see me as? I like bullying you, and I like everything about you as a whole. Of course, I also like your body." Qing Shui retracted his hands from below and hugged her tightly.
The Eldest Princess said softly: "Have you not taken enough advantage of me today? You are my nemesis. If it have been other people, I would have immediately torn them into pieces."
As Qing Shui heard the Eldest Princess' words, he was moved. He responded happily: "Sunu, do you also share the same feelings towards me?"
The Eldest Princess never expected this brat to actually change the way he called her. She rolled her eyes: "I don't like you, nor do I hate you. Haven't you said before that love and affection are different? You only have affection towards me and you are already bullying me like this?"
"Only when you start having affection for someone will it turn into love. As of now, the feeling I have towards you is already love."
"It's not love. You have said before that love is something which can be tested. Love is selfish. Tell me, will you be able to stand up to love's trials?" The Eldest Princess looked at Qing Shui while she pulled away his arms around her waist.
Qing Shui felt a bit upset. Just what kind of nonsense did he said? Great, now she could use it against him. He revealed a bitter smile and said: "It's only when someone love the other person to the extreme that it will turn selfish. But love is very weak, it can change very easily. So love requires responsibility as well."
At the moment when Qing Shui finished speaking, the Eldest Princess kissed his cheek on her own accord. "You are still a man. If you have said something different, I would never marry you in my entire life. Furthermore in the future, you too no longer have to think about ever touching me again."
Qing Shui felt that it was a close call. She was testing him. However, he too understood very quickly. After all, she knew that he had wives, but she still let him hug her. This could already justify one thing. If he thought that this woman would ask him to only have herself as his wife, if he really did misinterpret her intentions to be this, he would only be destined to lose this woman.
"So are you finally going to promise to marry me now?"
"No, but I can fulfill a small request for you as a way to send you off. If the request is too much, I will cancel it immediately." the Eldest Princess embraced Qing Shui's neck and whispered to his ear.
Qing Shui's blood within his body boiled, it was just a small request which wasn't too excessive. He immediately carried the Eldest Princess and had managed to bring her into his room in an instant.
"My cultivation doesn't allow me to lose my virginity."
Merely these few gentle words which came out of the Eldest Princess' mouth already made Qing Shui completely gave up the scheme he planned in his heart. Originally, he thought that he might be able to eat her up, but he now lost the intention to do so. Regardless of whether it was true or false, he would still need to respect her.
"I find it really hard to hold in. Just think of a way to help me force it out!" Qing Shui whispered beside her ears. He even went to the extent that he grabbed her jade-like hand then placed it on the firm and upright part of his body.
The woman immediately retracted her hand as her body also trembled.
"Sister Su, you promised to me before. This shouldn't be too much, should it?"
Eventually, Qing Shui still took off his clothes. That malevolent brat managed to make the Eldest Princess feel extremely shy as he slowly inserted it into her mouth. At that moment, her expression, which was filled with shock, fright and shyness, were very arousing to look at. It was only after a relentless amount of effort that she managed to get a grip of herself and began to move under Qing Shui's guidance.
The Eldest Princess finally left. Qing Shui on the other hand, still had the previous beautiful scenes in his mind. At the second he ejaculated, the adorable look which the Eldest Princess showed as she quickly ran away was imprinted in his mind.
Qing Shui who regained his composure pondered over when he should leave. It could be considered that he had now confirmed his relationship with the Eldest Princess. Of course, he was the one who confirmed it himself. He would definitely not let this woman ran away.
Qing Shui left and the girls watched him as he departed.
Now, the direction where Qing Shui headed to was precisely towards the divine Might Dynasty.
As Qing Shui made his way towards the divine Might Dynasty, the one thing he thought about the most was Di Chen. The reason why he came to the Western Oxhe Continent was precisely for Di Chen. The divine Might Dynasty was the dynasty closest to him at the other half of the Western Oxhe Continent. It was also a very powerful fourth grade dynasty.
Nine Continents Step!
During this time, the Nine Continents Steps Effect didn't get upgraded. He remembered the Demon Lord, the woman who could shuttle back and forth around the nine continents. He didn't know what she relied on in order to do so. Could it be the divine Turtle?
It was always been emphasized that the largest obstacle one could meet in passing back and forth the continents were the huge ocean. Could it be because this divine Turtle had miraculous magical power in the ocean?
Every time he thought about this woman, he would get a slight headache. She had enemies with the people who followed the right path in at least one continent. Or at least, this was what was shown to the public. The Demon Lord Palace, Qing Shui believed that he would need a strength worth around 10,000 sun if he wanted to meet her safely. Just how strong was that woman?
Qing Shui wanted to do things realistically without any flights of fancy. He decided that he would go with the flow and see what would happen.
Qing Shui who had made a decision stopped keeping his mind revolved around these things.
He rode on the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. Only when a particular time was reached, he would enter the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal to cultivate. When he came out, he would continue through his journey.
However, not long after he flew out of the sphere of influence of the Heaven Secrets Academy, he found himself surrounded by people. Qing Shui was really shocked. After all, he had used the Nine Continents Step Effect many times during his journey. He could still actually be targeted by other people. This was definitely something to be surprised about.
The people who stopped him were all old men. All of them had faces as gloomy as dripping water. When they looked at Qing Shui, it was like they were itching to tear him into thousand pieces as soon as possible.
"Why are you guys trying to stop me?" Qing Shui asked the two old men with hunched back.
If it wasn't because they were here, anyone would find it difficult to relate these two old men as expert warriors.
"Because you deserved it." The old man on the left side said as he lifted up his hand.
"Who are you guys? I don't think I have offended any of you before." At the moment, QIng Shui wanted to know who these people were. Even though he could roughly guess their identity, he still had no idea who was behind them.
It would be very easy for Qing Shui to escape as he had the Holy Jade divine Stone Ring and Nine Continents Boots. Hence, he didn't panic. Besides, with his current strength, there were only very few people who could actually beat him.
However, Qing Shui could feel that the people opposite him were also very strong. They should have a strength around 3,000 sun. So, there were a total of ten people with a strength worth 3,000 sun opposite him.
Qing Shui felt puzzled. Who would actually go this far just to pick a fight with him?
Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant!
Qing Shui raised his strength and summoned the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant and looked at the people opposite him. "I don't care who you are. You guys will still be able to make it if you leave now. If you really want to die, don't blame me for what I will do later."
"Ignorant, impudent brat! Die!"
The old man on the right side swung the dragon staff in his hand towards Qing Shui.
Nine Continents Mountain!
As Qing Shui triggered his mind, the Nine Continents Mountain appeared immediately. It forged its way towards the old man.
Primordial Flame Dragon Whip!
An enormous flame dragon instantly whipped towards the old man with bright flame.
The old man immediately got whipped by Qing Shui's attacks. It was obvious that he had already got injured as he revealed a dispirited expression.
Qing Shui was stunned. He had actually met the 20% chance to double his prowess.
Vajra Subdues Demon!
In just a short while, Qing Shui had eliminated nearly one third of these old men’s strength. As this happened, they were only left with about 1,000 sun of strength.
Tidal Cloud Waves Seal!
The surroundings immediately got covered by a huge ocean.
Monstrous Wave, Toppling Mountains and Ocean!
At Qing Shui's current strength, his most powerful attack was the Seal of Roc. However, the one which was truly intimidating was his controlling ability. Of course, it would be a different story if his Seal of Roc could meet the 20% chances to double its prowess.
Originally, the effect of the 20% to double his prowess was supposed to be absolutely powerful. However, with no idea since when, it seemed like it had gotten a bit weaker. From Qing Shui's perspective, it seemed to be less than 10%, or even less than 5%. He found this really hard to understand.
Seal of Roc!
With just one move, Qing Shui managed to push one of the old man back into the dark vortex. He quickly continued on his attack with the enormous wave from the Toppling Mountains and Sea.
Ruthless Fire and Water!
Water Binding Force!
Seal of Xuantian!
At this moment, Qing Shui showed his opponents his formidable controlling ability. In just a blink of an eye, one of the nine old men got injured whereas the others experienced great reduction in speed. Both their hands and feet were bound among the boundless ocean.
Nine Palace Roaming Dragon Step!
Qing Shui was like a roaming dragon in the deep sea. He kept the Nine Continent Mountains coordinated to his movement. To his opponents, each of his attacks were heavy burdens to them as he was using the Seal of Roc in all of his attacks.
In one his attacks, he managed to meet the 20% chance of doubling his attack prowess and ended up killing his opponent instantly.
When Qing Shui was with the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, as long as he weakened his opponent and used the State of One With Elephant, every one Seal of Roc which he unleashed would be fatal attacks to them.
Since the massacre had already started, Qing Shui found no need to hold back. As a result of the boost he received in his Spirit Energy, the strength of both his Tidal Cloud Wave Seal and his Seal of Xuantian had also been significantly increased.
The Instantaneous Diamond Evasion of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant could help let it stand at an absolute advantage against opponents on the same level. It could defend and attack at godly speed.
Qing Shui immediately left the place once he retrieved all of the interspatial silk sachets. However, what made him upset in the end was that among the men, two were from the Tian Clan, four were from the Fu Clan, and the rest were from the other clans.
Aristocratic Clan also had a lot of internal conflicts with each other. A lot of people would thirst for the position of the Clan's Head. Qing Shui wasn't surprised about it. Now, he wanted to run away. There were too few people who could stop him in the Western Oxhe Continent.
This time, upon entering the paradise, Qing Shui saw the Yang Stone. He made up his mind to once again forge the Big Dipper Sword. This way, he would be able to help himself increase a significant amount of strength.
Prior to this, he had never thought of doing this. However this time, he was heading off to the divine Might Dynasty, it would be advantageous for him to raise a bit of his strength. After all, he was alone there. Things would be really bad if he ran into any expert warriors.
This time, Qing Shui was really excited. He hoped that he could make the Big Dipper Sword turn into a legendary grade weapon. He was really looking forward to it. If he really managed to do that, his strength would once again be able to experience another significant increase.
False God, he wondered what kind of strength would be considered to had stepped into the huge door of the False God Realm.
Qing Shui retrieved his mind and dedicated all of it into forging the metal.
He smelted the Big Dipper Sword. The Big Dipper Sword acted as the heart of his sword. Simultaneously, it was also the bone of his sword.
After that, he started to refine the Yang Stone and blended it drop by drop into his Big Dipper Sword.
Since his strength had increased, the power of the Primordial Flame also increased significantly. Compared to before, the speed at which he melted the Yang Stone was a lot faster now. But even so, he still needed almost 49 days to melt it.
He had already used up roughly one-third of the Yang Stone. Actually, this one-third of it was already enough to forge a sword. However, when blending it into the Big Dipper Sword, it only gave an additional faint thread of gold color to its edge. In terms of its size and thickness, there weren't that much changes.
Following on, he started to hammer and refine it. The most crucial moment had come. Qing Shui prayed that it would achieve the legendary grade.

AST 1255 –Spiritual Weapon, Explosive Increasing Strength, Reunion With Hu Yiya
Qing Shui really wanted to enter the State of No Conscious. Unfortunately, he was more conscious than anyone at the moment. Even though he dedicated all of his mind in smelting the sword, he found himself unable to enter the State of No Conscious.
Suddenly, Qing Shui felt a pain on his hand. Previously, he didn't enter the State of No Conscious, but he suddenly got distracted. He lowered his head and for some reason, found his hand to have been cut by the Big Dipper Sword. Drop after drop, his fresh blood dripped onto the Big Dipper Sword.
Originally, this kind of small wound would be able to regenerate itself very quickly. Hence, Qing Shui wasn't really concerned about it. He continued to hammer and smelt it. At this moment, he couldn't afford to have any more distractions or allow himself to do other things.
Time passed by little by little. What made Qing Shui felt a bit upset was that little wound didn't actually recover. He didn't know if it had something to do with the aura on the sword. Regardless of whatever the reason was, Qing Shui still felt really weird about it.
He could still afford to lose this little bit of blood. Besides, this blood already blended itself into the Big Dipper Sword. This was his own blood that contained the Violet Gold Bloodline. When forging weapons, there was a method known as the Blood Sacrifice.
Qing Shui knew that there were two kinds of Blood Sacrifice. The first kind was known as the Death Sacrifice. A kind of Blood Sacrifice in which the blacksmith used his own life in exchange for the cost. This kind of weapons would normally be killing weapons. Killing weapons had very strong killing intent as well as resentment. Normally, people who used this kind of swords wouldn't end well.
The other kind of Blood Sacrifice was by using his own blood essence as guidance to increase his and his weapon's mutual understanding, or even turn it into a Spiritual Sword. Spiritual Sword was naturally a sword which could communicate mentally. It would even have a bit of its own thought, gaining sentience. Hence, Qing Shui's strength would be able to increase significantly.
Qing Shui instantly came up with a lot of thoughts in his mind. But he knew that now wasn't the time for him to think about these. He quickly focused once more and continued to forge.
Drop after drop, he was slowly losing his blood. Even though one drop wasn't much, he still wouldn't be able to hold on for a long period of time. Qing Shui realized that he was now already losing an excessive amount of blood. However, he was already at the stage where it was impossible for him to stop. If he was to bet on it, he might be able to end up with a Spiritual Sword. That way, he would be able to get even stronger. It might even provide a huge help as he tried to break through to the Eighth Heavenly Layer.
Qing Shui clenched his teeth and told himself in his mind to hold on a bit longer and only think of a backup plan once he reached his limit. That way, at least he wouldn't regret even if it failed.
Qing Shui, whose face looked extremely pale, clenched his teeth and hold on bitterly. He was already at his limit. If this went on, the only thing he could do was to eat some medicinal herbs that could help to keep himself alive. Even if he eat them, he wouldn't be able to replenish his blood immediately.
At that moment, Qing Shui felt astonished as a powerful dazzling light attacked him. A bright light appeared on top of the Big Dipper Sword. This meant that the process was a success. Furthermore, the Big Dipper Sword also shrinked at a really fast speed. It only stopped when it was about the size of a small finger. It was shining in gold and right in the center, there was an unadorned and simple flower pattern that looked really exquisite and astute. It immediately entered into Qing Shui's Dantian.
Unfortunately, Qing Shui had now fainted. He didn't had the chance to see some of the changes. After the small Big Dipper Sword entered Qing Shui's Dantian, it began to slowly nurture his meridians to recover his qi and blood.
After about eight hours, QIng Shui woke up. Even though at the moment, his body still felt really weak, he already felt a lot better compared to before. He quickly went to have a look at the Big Dipper Sword only to find that it had vanished completely.
Qing Shui felt strange but just as was wondering where the Big Dipper Sword went to, his subconscious informed him that the Big Dipper Sword was already within his Dantian. Initially, Qing Shui was already extremely surprised by this. He quickly took a peek inside and got yet another shock of his life.
Now, within his Dantian, the Golden Pellet was located in the middle. The Nine Continents Mountain was on the left while the Seven-colored Pellet was on the right. However, below the Golden Pellet, there was the Big Dipper Sword. Its sword tip was pointing forward.
He had actually attained himself a Spiritual Sword!
Qing Shui found it hard to believe. The Spiritual Sword was a mystical existence. Its strongest ability was that it was able to communicate telepathically. It shared the same thought with its master, and they could communicate telepatically. The legendary divine Weapons were precisely this kind of weapon. It was just that divine Weapons were a lot stronger than Spiritual Weapons. However, despite so, Spiritual Weapons also had the chance to evolve into divine Weapons, but the chances for that to happen was fairly small.
Regardless of the chances, QIng Shui still felt unusually happy. Spiritual Weapon was almost equivalent to Legendary grade weapon. Hence, it could be said that Spiritual Weapon was at Legendary grade. However, it was a Legendary grade weapon which could mature.
It was just like last time when he helped the Seventh Princess forged the Nine Yang Sword. That was as far as it could go. It would stay that level permanently until it was ruined. But of course, Legendary grade weapons weren't something which would break so easily.
However, Qing Shui's Spiritual Sword was able to grow! Once the time was right and the condition was fulfilled, its strength would increase. Speaking of strength, Qing Shui quickly looked towards it. Until now, he still didn't know what the strength of the current Big Dipper Sword was.
Big Dipper Sword, Spiritual Weapon. Smelted with Blood Essence. Connected to the owner's mind.
It could increase the user's raw strength by ten folds and Spirit Energy by three folds. There was a 10% chance that the attack prowess would be doubled. The amount of consumption when using any battle techniques would be cut down by half.
It was not necessary to be held in hand. There would even be strength increase even if you used other weapons. User could condense the sword with his Qi. He could also attack immediately barehanded. For now, the the Big Dipper Sword couldn't leave the Dantian.
Qing Shui felt incomparably excited. The Spiritual Weapons were also divided into two groups. One which could mature, and the other one which couldn't. The latter meant that the weapon would permanently stayed the way it was. The former on the other hand, had a bit of hope to become a divine Weapon. There was a high hope that its strength would flourish once again.
This time, Qing Shui once again managed to significantly increase his strength. His physical strength had reached almost a 1,900 sun. When using the Nine Continents Mountain, it could reach almost 3,800 sun. If he was to combine it with the strength reduction provided by Vajra Subdues Demon and Emperor's Qi, he would be able to immediately push back expert warriors with a strength worth around 5,000 sun with his Nine Continents Mountain to the point they couldn't resist.
Furthermore, his Spirit Energy had also become more terrifying. When he unleashed the Seal of Roc, he would be able to achieve a strength worth more than 5,300 sun. Even if he was to randomly use the Primordial Flame Dragon Whip, he would also have a strength near 2,700 sun.
His Controlling Ability was even more fearsome. Merely a Spiritual Sword could already push him all the way to his peak. There were now even fewer people in the Western Oxhe Continent who was capable of trapping him.
Qing Shui realized that not only did the ability of the Spiritual Sword to double his attack prowess didn't increase, it was even reduced to 10%. However, Qing Shui didn't feel unhappy, he even felt delighted when he learnt about it. The reason for that was because now, he felt that the 10% chance would definitely be more accurate. In fact, it might even be have a higher proc chance than the previous 20%.
Ten percent. The 10% chance meant that every ten times he unleashed an attack, one of them would had the opportunity to double in prowess. It only took an instant for experts to exchange blows ten times. Hence, 10% was still something really terrifying.
If this opportunity was met, Qing Shui's Spirit Energy Attack would still be really terrifying. Even if he didn't use the Seal of Roc, it would still contain a strength worth 5,000 sun and more.
If Qing Shui was to run into that ten elderly men from before with his current strength, he would be able to crush them.
Spiritual Sword. A spiritual sword which could grow. It was equivalent to being a False divine Weapon.
As Qing Shui looked at the medicinal herbs within the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, he hoped that he could refine the Three Yang Pill, or even the Four Yang Pill as early as possible. In the future, if he had the intention to head towards the three other continents, he would still need to rely on these to increase his strength. Most importantly, he needed to break through to the Eighth Heavenly Layer.
Qing Shui was already standing at the foot of the mountain of Eighth Heavenly Layer. However, it was a tall mountain which penetrated through the sky. It was so sharp that there was not even the slightest slope along the way. How could a normal people climb up the mountain?
Within two months time, Qing Shui finally managed to enter the area of divine Might Dynasty with his Nine Continents Step Effect, as well as the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant's flying ability. Maybe because it was near the dangerous and desolate area of the other half of Western Oxhe Continent, the culture here was relatively more doughty.
The divine Might Dynasty was very windy and had a lot of snow. In comparison, the weather here was slightly poorer in quality, but the air here was still fresh. Furthermore, the four seasons here were distinguished very clearly.
Yet again, he arrived at an unfamiliar place alone. However this time, Qing Shui arrived with hope and expectation. The reason was there was a woman here whom he was familiar with. He hoped that he would be able to see her earlier.
By the time Qing Shui arrived at divine Might Dynasty, he wished that he could have met Di Chen right away. It was as if he couldn't wait for even one second. He tried his best to take in some air to calm himself down.
He didn't know what this place was. In any case, this place was just incomparably crowded. There were continuous streams of people along the street. Qing Shui also didn't really feel hesitant. He didn't feel cold, nor would he starve or get bullied by other people. In fact, he felt quite relaxed here.
The sect Di Chen was in was called the Lotus Sect. He didn't know how the Lotus Sect was like, nor did he know where it was. He had already inquired a lot of people along the street. He even paid them money to ask about it. Nevertheless, his attempts still ended in failure. There were some people who just randomly pointed into a direction upon receiving the money. Even though Qing Shui didn't head into the said-direction, he still knew that it was fake. They only did so for the money.
It seemed like the people at the bottom were not aware of the existence of the Lotus Sect. The world was boundless. One small sect just wouldn't be so noticeable. Even if they had heard about it, it would still be useless. To them, it would only be something which existed in legend. How would they know about its location?
It was way too big. Qing Shui made up his mind to head towards the Imperial City.
Within the Imperial City, there were talented individuals in hiding. In comparison, things would be easier for him.
This time, Qing Shui right away made some inquires about the direction to the Imperial City. He didn't hesitate to spend money to ask about it from a few warriors. He only used his Nine Continents Step Effect to travel into the direction towards Imperial City once he got an unanimous answer from each of them.
The divine Might Dynasty was very huge, but there were even more low grade dynasties under their control. Originally, Qing Shui already felt that the Great Yu Dynasty was already really huge. But compared to divine Might Dynasty, they were just too far apart in size.
It was winter here. By the time he arrived at the Imperial City, the sky was already filled with snowflakes. Qing Shui preferred snowing over raining. With snow everywhere, the entire place turned white with snow covering the ground and pines very quickly.
Qing Shui stood on the land of snow and let the snowflakes landed on him. He felt unusually calm, calm like deep water.
Even though it was already snowing, there were still a lot of people along the street. In fact, there seemed to be even more people than usual.
Suddenly, there was an uproar in front. A group of people was walking towards the direction where Qing Shui was. These people were wearing luxurious clothes. Just with one glance, people could already tell that they're disciples from wealthy clans. They were all youngsters. At least based on their appearances, they looked really young.
At the moment when Qing Shui looked at the person, the person also seemed to be looking right back at him. Very quickly, she already made her way towards him. The person leading was a clever-looking woman wearing a fox fur coat. Qing Shui already found her a bit familiar at the first time he saw her.
"Why are you in divine Might Dynasty?" The woman seemed surprised when she saw Qing Shui.
"Hu Yiya?" Qing Shui felt that he was a bit bad at recognizing people. Normally, once a woman changed into a new cloth and put on a new kind of make-up, it would be quite energy-consuming to try and recognize them.
"You still remember me? This is great. Since you're here, let me do the honors and treat you." Hu Yiya seemed to be particularly happy. There was a faint fox charm between her brows. However, it also felt innocent.
"Are you still in touch with him." Qing Shui was talking about Tian Jiange. He only knew that she shared an extraordinary relationship with Tian Jiange. He didn't know how things had turned out for them as of now.
"Of course, he told me that he will get married with me when he is more capable." Hu Yiya looked at Qing Shui and smiled.
"Oh, don't worry about it, he will definitely be able to achieve a lot." Qing Shui smiled and responded.
"Let's go, let me bring you around."
"Sister Ya, who is he? He seems so unfamiliar." The young men beside Hu Yiya asked.
"A friend from far away. He is really powerful." Hu Yiya answered them casually.
"Oh, if you are Sister Ya's friends, that means you are also our friend. Let's go and walk around together. This way, things will be livelier." It was obvious that Hu Yiya was their boss. Among the twelve people including Hu Yiya, there were only four females.
