Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1273-1275
AST 1273 –Start To Take Action, Fu Clan First
Since he could still see hope, Qing Shui still remained hopeful. He trusted that he would definitely be able to reach the 8th Heavenly Layer and by then, his abilities would soar tremendously.
Qing Shui suddenly had the feeling that if he were to attain the 8th Heavenly Layer, he would be able to enter the state of False God. It was the group who would seem to be immortals in the mortal world!
Retrieving his gaze, Qing Shui closed the Puppet Marionette Encyclopedia. At the very end, the encyclopedia was even more mysterious, creating puppet marionettes and giving them souls. They would be able to help you in battles, just like the marionettes from the Marionette Sect.
However, the prerequisites for one to be able to giving them souls were very high. Level of drawing souls…Qing Shui hadn’t thought that he would need to bring the mastery of his drawing skills to such a level. Drawing souls and giving them to the puppets, he would then be able to use his spirit energy to control them.
As for how powerful the puppet marionettes were and the ability of one to be able to draw souls, these were related to the owner’s spirit energy. Of course, it was also affected by the material used to make the puppets. The materials used must definitely be plants and thus the requirements were very high. Thankfully, there were also quite a number of powerful plants, such as plants like the bloodthirsty demonic vines. It wasn’t bad to be using such plants for making puppets.
Qing Shui planned to study the Puppet Marionette Encyclopedia in detail in the future. It was because it was said that puppet marionettes had unique abilities. Made under such high requirements, they shouldn’t be bad. However, the thought of him having to reach the level of drawing souls in his drawing, he felt a little helpless.
Qing Sha still had yet to join the Heaven Secrets Academy. However, she now had quite a cordial relationship with the few ladies. It could be because of their age. When faced against others, the cold and violent aura she exuded was still very powerful. However, Qing Shui and the other ladies had felt that it was very normal now.
The new year was over. Qing Shui felt that there were things that he would need to deal with now, for example, Fu Clan and Tian Clan. The people who had took action against him still hadn’t shown anything from their side. Since they didn’t know any better, there wasn’t a need for Qing Shui to keep them alive.
He also knew of the idea of killing to make an example for others. In the past, he felt that it was beyond him to do something like this. However, the situation now was different and it was suitable for such an action. It would be a pity for him to not take the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.
Fu Clan had a unique spot in the Heaven Secrets Academy. Fu Clan was a great clan in the Heaven Secrets Academy with a long legacy. It was a pity for Fu Clan. They had a turning point in Fu Yantian’s generation, for Fu Yantian to get more powerful and then to take over the Heaven Secrets Academy. This would bring Fu Clan up a great notch. If Fu Yantian didn’t rise up, Fu Clan would degenerate and it would be harder for them to rise up in the future.
It was a pity that Fu Yantian had been crippled and it was hard for Fu Clan to rise up again. They could only slowly decline. Initially, Qing Shui wasn’t thinking of going all out to kill them but to think that Fu Clan would commit such an underhand act to assassinate him. Since they showed him no signs of righteousness, they shouldn’t blame him for showing them no mercy.
Qing Shui rode on the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant and arrived in the air above Fu Clan with the Fire Bird flying above him.
He didn’t say a word and merely awaited them. Since Fu Clan had done something like this, they should have been prepared for this. He knew that there would definitely be people from Fu Clan who would come out.
In about less than 15 minutes, three old men flew up from Fu Clan. They appeared to be very old and were all wearing plain white clothes as they looked at Qing Clan with a solemn expressions.
“Why have you come to Fu Clan?”The old man in the lead had triangular eyes, broom eyebrows  and a red nose. He had a tall and strong build and hair like that of a lion’s. This could be considered an inborn anomaly. The old man was glaring at Qing Shui, making no attempt to conceal the killing intent in his eyes.
“I’m here to ask for payback for a debt. Are you guys ready for it?”Qing Shui got straight to the point. He knew that the other party would understand what he was saying.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m telling you that Fu Clan isn’t a place for you to behave atrociously. Don’t be thinking that you’re the best just because you are a little talented.”The old man looked at Qing Shui calmly. Of course, he would not admit it. Even if there was evidence, he would also push it onto the person who had committed the act, saying that the person had done it on his own accord and the blame wouldn’t be on Fu Clan.
“I’m not here to talk it out today. No matter if you were to admit it or not, I’m here to kill today.”Qing Shui spoke each and every word clearly.
“You really think very highly of yourself. This isn’t a place for your atrocities. Even if the head of the Heaven Secrets Academy is backing you up, I’m going to seek justice today.”A hint of viciousness flashed in the old man’s eyes.
“With people like you guys around, it’s no wonder that Fu Clan is going into decline. Today, I’m only here to ask for payback. Make your move, stop all the crap.”
With that, Qing Shui activated his Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation and then the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant under him launched out a Vajra Subdues Demons!
When dealing with these people, what Qing Shui needed was to get everything over with quickly. Therefore, he used the Emperor’s Qi immediately.
Seal of Xuantian!
Mighty Dragon Elephant Stomp!
The surrounding air became a whirlpool of explosions. Even when he was bare-handed, Qing Shui was actually already at the prowess equivalent of one holding onto a legendary grade weapon. Other people wouldn’t be able to understand how powerful Qing Shui was.
The three old men’s abilities were only at around 5,000 suns. It was already considered quite powerful. Even the Lotus Sect’s sect lord was only just over 6,000 suns. Of course, the sect lord might not necessarily be the strongest person in the sect.
At their level, they were already the strongest existences in Fu Clan. There was also another old man who kept himself in seclusion. As for whether he was still alive or not, no one knew. These three old men from the Fu Clan were considered the ones in power in Fu Clan. This time, they were out to eradicate Qing Shui. Otherwise, Fu Clan would be plagued with endless troubles in the future.
At their level, being one grade stronger would allow them to crush their opponents. They felt that Qing Shui would at most have a strength of 3,000 suns or he might not even be at 3,000 suns. The difference between 2,000 and 3,000 suns was tremendous and the difference between 3,000 to 4,000 suns was yet another huge barrier. This was also why they were so confident.
However, they soon knew their folly, their utter fully. They were instantly weakened to be at a strength of only about 3,500 suns…
A strength of over 5,000 suns was brought down to slightly over 3,500 suns…They were unable to accept the sudden change. Before they could react, the Seal of Xuantian smashed down on them. At this moment, they panicked. Because of their carelessness, it was probably over for Fu Clan today.
The powers from the Mighty Dragon Elephant Stomp extended out toward them but didn’t cause them to feel dizziness. However, at that moment, the Fire Bird attacked.
An attack with a strength of 4,000 suns!
It was still considered easy to deal with the three old men who were only left with a strength of about 3,500 suns. Right now, in terms of both speed and impact, the Fire Bird had the absolute advantage.
One of the old men was only able to fend it off the first time, got injured on the second and suffered from heavy injuries on the 3rd attack. Each attack only took the Fire Bird a quick flash of moving its huge wings and a powerful Underworld Fireball exploded on the old man.
The old man was destroyed to the extent that there was nothing left of him. Everything happened in less than the time required for one to take a breath.
In less than the time required for a single breath, a great cultivator with a strength of 5,000 suns was gone just like that…
This was the first time he had seen how powerful the Fire Bird truly was. Working together with his Emperor’s Qi and the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant’s Vajra Subdues Demons, to think that a cultivator with a strength of 5,000 suns wasn’t even able to hold on for the time required for a single breath.
It was a great surprise for Qing Shui while a terrifying one for the remaining two old men. The three of them were of similar level and if that huge black bird wanted to deal with them, there was no way that they would be able to fend off its attacks.
The two old men exchanged a glance and then swung the sabers in their hands. Two Ice Armor Giant Bug Kings appeared next to them. These two demonic beasts were like two blocks of ice that was shaped like a gigantic bug. They were 100 meters long and their thick bodies were like a small mountain. The moment they appeared they sent out ice fog. Everything that the ice fog came into contact with were sealed in ice.
Ancient mutated beasts!
Qing Shui looked at the two huge worms and realized that they seemed to be slightly stronger than the current Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant but yet weren’t a match for the Five Elements Golden Flames. However, in terms of the five elements, fire’s weakness was water and ice also came under the classification of water.
However, even though ice was considered to be of the water element, their abilities against the Fire Bird had too big of a gap and they were only able to fend off for a short moment before they were burned to ash. If they were of the same level as the Fire Bird, Qing Shui would probably have to help out since there were two of them and the element traits clashed. By this time, the two old men could already see the future that Fu Clan had in store for them.
Suddenly, one of them took out a colorful rock. To Qing Shui, it looked like a rock. At that moment, the old man tossed it into the air and with a huge boom, it exploded.
The moment it exploded, a piercing sound scattered out far away.
A signal to call for help?
Qing Shui was taken aback. He had already killed one and there wasn’t a need to keep the other two. With a vicious gleam in his eyes, he used the Great Golden Buddha Palm to confine them.
The Fire Bird unleashed its attacks!
After the old men had been weakened, it was the equivalent of Qing Shui, the Fire Bird and the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant were killing three cultivators who each had a strength of 3,500 suns. This made it a lot simpler. Without the Emperor’s Qi and the Vajra Subdues Demons, Qing Shui wouldn’t have the confidence to be able to deal with Fu Clan.
At that moment, the other members of Fu Clan came out as well. Both Fu Yantian and Fu Yanting were around. Right now, Fu Yantian spurted out a mouthful of blood and became unconscious.
Fu Yanting looked at Qing Shui, his eyes flashing with a vengeance gleam. Qing Shui landed slowly. “I won’t kill you guys if you were to cripple your cultivation. Otherwise, you’ll be just like him.”
As Qing Shui said this, with a wave of his hand, he slashed down toward Fu Yanting with his palm. Qing Shui saw the vengeance gleam in Fu Yanting’s eyes. Although he wasn’t scared of Fu Yanting, Qing Shui didn’t like to remain in another’s person mind in such a way.
Fu Yantian probably wouldn’t be able to wake up anymore and thus there wasn’t a need for Qing Shui to take any further action.
Qing Shui didn’t approve of wiping out one’s roots entirely but he didn’t like to be excessively soft hearted either. When he must kill, he would definitely not show mercy. There were people which mustn’t be left behind. For example, Fu Yanting. Moreover, Fu Yanting deserved to die.
Qing Shui’s viciousness stunned everyone. After all, even the three old men were wiped out. What could they possibly do?
Every member of Fu Clan trembled. Without their cultivation, they would forever be cripples. For many people, once they were crippled of their cultivation, they wouldn’t have many years to live.
“Can I pledge my loyalty to you instead?”A man asked, trembling.
With a punch, Qing Shui sent that man flying, killing him.
Fu Clan had no rights to negotiate.
“Kill him! Let’s attack him together! We’re members of Fu Clan!”An old man suddenly shouted and dashed out toward Qing Shui.
Qing Shui let out a cold laugh as he looked at the close to 20 people who were charging out toward him
The Fire Bird glided past them, sending down Hell’s Infernos. The group of people disappeared just like that.
“Stop it.”An aged voice rang out, exuding a tremendous pressure. Thick at the beginning, then become scarce at the end like a broom. https://www.wofs.com/index.php/miscellaneous-mainmenu-38/407-17-ways-to-shape-your-eyebrows

AST 1274 –Put down the Butcher's Knife, Formation Eye Stone, divine Beast's Blood
The voice which came through out of nowhere made Qing Shui's flesh creep. It felt as if he was being spied on, it felt really uncomfortable just like when someone didn't wear any clothes in public.
Qing Shui's body felt as if it suddenly went into an extremely cold place. The hair all over his body immediately stood on end. He felt as if his body was shivering all over even though it wasn't actually cold. Following on, an old man appeared above the Fu Clan in the sky.
The old man had a body that resembled a dried up bone and looked just like a malicious devil. While he looked at the old man, Qing Shui felt as if the old man might die at anytime. However, there was a strange looking stone-like object in his body which appeared like it was supporting him.
Stone of Life!
With just one glance, Qing Shui was able to recognize the stone as he himself had worn one before. It was during that time when he got heavily injured by the people from the Residence of the Sky Tyrant Lord and was left with only one or two days to live. Back then, Di Chen let him wore a pendant made of a Stone of Life. It had managed to extend his lifespan by three years.
It was also because of the Stone of Life which Di Chen gave that he was able to hang on and comprehend the Force of Rebirth, and endured until the moment when his body felt as if it got reborned. Now, he noticed that the old man was also wearing the Stone of Life. Furthermore, it seemed like its energy was already quite depleted. It shouldn't be a problem for the Stone of Life to support the old man for up to a year and a half. However, these circumstances doesn't seemed to make any influence to the tremendous death aura that emitted from the old man's body.
Even though Qing Shui predicted that the old man had ties with the Fu Clan, he never expected for him to be their Old Ancestor.
At the moment when the old man showed up, he didn't actually made any moves. Ever since he showed up, he just looked at Qing Shui and didn't even turn to look at the people from the Fu Clan.
Qing Shui stayed on alert. At the same time, he also sensed the old man's strength and immediately weakened it along with the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. No matter who they were, he would only put a discussion after they became weakened. By doing this, if they were to really start a fight later, Qing Shui wouldn't get too flustered by his opponents.
However, Qing Shui was stunned because after the old man got weakened, he still had a strength worth more than 5,000 sun, and it was even close to 6,000 sun. This meant that before this, the old man had a strength worth nearly 9,000 sun. No wonder Qing Shui could feel danger.
The Palace Lord of the Heaven Secrets Academy had mentioned before that the most powerful person from the Western Oxhe Continent had a strength of around 8,000 sun. Could it be that the ones that the old man had talked about was these people who were at the brink of death?
The old man who looked like a malicious devil also stared at Qing Shui with a strange look. Even after he got weakened, he didn't made his moves. He spoke slowly: "Your aura is bright like a river of stars. Why must you resort to extermination? Putting one Fu Clan aside, even if ten Fu Clans tried to stop you, they will fail to do so. Under this kind of circumstances, if you can choose to let go of the butcher knife in your hand, you will gain insights into the other aspects of life.."
Qing Shui looked at the old man. Prior to this, he actually wasn't left with any way to step down. Additionally, killing them would also be quite a decent option although it was also fine even if he didn't do it. It was very difficult for the Fu Clan to change their fate.
"Just be straight with your words. How do you feel about fighting me after you finished speaking?" Qing Shui knew that the old man wouldn't fight him. He was able to sense this really strongly.
"I'm not going to let you beat me. In the future, you will definitely have boundless achievements. The Fu Clan will also not fail to appreciate your kindness. How about this? I'll give you a few stuffs in exchange for the safety of these people from the Fu Clan. Let them leave this place and become an ordinary people with family. Does this sound fine to you?" The old man let out a sigh and looked at Qing Shui.
"Oh, you want to trade something in exchange for their life?" Qing Shui asked even though he already knew the answer.
"Sure, but first, I want to see what it is. I want to see if it's worthy enough to convince me to let them go." Qing Shui said indifferently.
"This is easy. Take it." The old man immediately threw an Interspatial Silk Sachet at Qing Shui.
Qing Shui immediately peeked into it with his Spiritual Sense. The space within the Interspatial Silk Sachet was fairly small and was only one cubic meter in size. There were only a few stuff within it and the most obvious one was a piece of Yang Stone. Even though Qing Shui still had a few of it, but when it came to Yang Stone, he would never complain of himself having too many of them. After all, he was a blacksmith.
There was also a Yang Stone Sword. Unfortunately, the level of forging for this sword was too rough. Despite this, there would still be a lot of people who would be fighting over it if he took it out. Hence, it was still considered really valuable. The last two things were two small porcelain bottles.
Qing Shui immediately scanned it. To his surprise, one of the bottles had divine Beast's Blood in it. The other bottle was slightly bigger and to his surprise yet again, there were two Ice Silkworm's eggs inside. At the moment when Qing Shui was about to summon back his Spiritual Sense, he spotted an ordinary stone at the side. He was stunned upon examining the stone.
Formation Eye Stone!
When someone with said the stone set up formations, he or she could double the strength of the formation. As the Formation Eye Stone ascended in grade, the strength of the formation would also follow along and become stronger.
Qing Shui's eyes shone for a moment. All of these could be said to be extremely precious. Merely the value of the Formation Eye Stone was more than enough. It was just that there were too few people who was actually aware of the uses of these things.
"Aren't you scared that I will kill all of you after I take away these stuff?" Qing Shui questioned the old man indifferently.
"Well if that were to happen, I can only blame myself for being blind." The old man didn't express any emotions on his face. Since the beginning, he was already like this.
"I can let them go. I hope that you will tell them what to do. You guys can decide whether to remain in the Heaven Secrets Academy or leave." Qing Shui wasn't worried that they would make any moves. Besides, he knew that at the end of the day, only very few of them would manage to remain alive.
Even if he was to not take any action, other people would do it in his place.
"We will leave. Don't worry, my words is still quite reliable, even when I'm someone who is at the brink of death. Besides, they will never have the capability to seek vengeance from you. I will cripple a bit of the cultivation of the stronger ones among them." The old man said calmly.
Qing Shui never expected the old man to have this kind of thought. In a way, doing this could be considered to have helped the Fu Clan to keep their heritage. It was only by doing this would they be able to thoroughly eliminate the intentions to seek vengeance which some of them harbored. For someone at his age, the old man could have seen through almost everything. Compared to surviving, anything like love and vengeance were just like drifting clouds across the sky. They weren't even worth mentioning about.
Being alive was tough, so was surviving. Compared to keeping a clan alive, nothing could be more important. Only by staying alive would there be hope.
Qing Shui left and immediately went back to his own courtyard. Simultaneously, things regarding the Fu Clan had also started to spread around the entire academy very quickly. Now, the one who felt the most worried was none other than the Tian Clan and the clans who took part in the plan to kill Qing Shui.
As for the Fu Clan, after they left very quickly on the same day, they had disappeared without leaving even a single trace. The higher-ups in the Heaven Secrets Academy also didn't do anything about it. The old man in golden dragon gown had warned them about it way long ago and the few old demons also didn't ask too many questions about the Heaven Secrets Academy. Things like this wouldn't in the least bother them.
If it wasn't because the Old Ancestor from the Fu Clan was nearing the end of his life, things might have turned out differently. The old man was aware that this young man was someone not to be taken lightly of. The Fu Clan had placed itself within the Heaven Secrets Academy. Compared to the academy, the colossus itself, the Fu Clan was still nothing. This young man would definitely be someone protected by the Heaven Secrets Academy. Even if he wanted to lay his hands on him, he wasn't sure if he would or wouldn't be able to do so. However, if he really would go toe-to-toe against Qing Shui now, he wouldn't get even the slightest benefit out of it.
"Qing Shui, are you alright?" Naturally, the Eldest Princess had also found out about the things regarding the Fu Clan.
"I'm fine. I am going to first help you sweep away all the obstacles within the Heaven Secrets Academy. After that, I will help you how to organize the forces around the academy." Qing Shui smiled and responded. The Heaven Secrets Academy was a lot simpler. With its support, he could do everything around here with relative ease.
In the event of facing off against the Fu Clan, Qing Shui had demonstrated his strength. Three people with a strength worth 5,000 sun got eliminated by him in just a moment's time. This war was enough to help him stand at an indisputable position within the Heaven Secrets Academy. In addition to that, he was a member of the Breezing Wind Veranda and most importantly, he also shared a deep relation with the support of the Breezing Wind Veranda, Yu Sunu.
"Don't be so impetuous. Just act within your own competence." The Eldest Princess slightly knitted her brows and said gently.
"Don't worry, I don't feel like dying yet. I am going to rest for a while." Qing Shui went back to his room.
Today, he no longer planned to go look for the Tian Clan and the other clans. He was waiting as this battle alone had already proved more than enough for him. He believed that one condition was all he needed to settle things. Hence, he right away entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
He started off by first taking out the Formation Eye Stone.
This object was only the size of a palm and both of its ends looked sharp. The middle part of it was oval in shape. It somehow resembled a dart but compared to it, it was a bit huge. Upon touching it, Qing Shui felt that it was slightly cold but he wasn't able to feel even the slightest spiritual fluctuation.
Qing Shui slowly exerted force with his palm. At the moment, he wouldn't need too much strength to crush normal metallic essence. However, this Formation Eye Stone was unusually tough. He wouldn't try to hold it with too much force cause if it broke, the only thing he could do was cry.
This thing didn't need to go through the blood dropping ceremony as it could be refined immediately. What surprised Qing Shui was that the amount of divine Force which the Formation Eye Stone could absorb was a lot. It seemed that this was a first grade Formation Eye Stone.
He didn't know if the Formation Eye Stone was a first grade or if it once had an owner, but he didn't really care about this. In any case, he was really happy that the Formation Eye Stone could immediately increase the strength of the bearer's formation by one time.
After the refining process ended, Qing Shui immediately used the Nine Palace Steps.
Within the Nine Palace Steps, the Nine Palace can now also be considered as a trapping formation. The flow of time of everything within the area which it covered had became slower. Furthermore, the area in which it enveloped had also became bigger. The speed at which he moved, as well as his reaction speed, seemed to have increased significantly.
It was as if he didn't recognize fatigue, Qing Shui only stopped after a long time. While using the Nine Palace Steps, he also practiced his Taichi Fist, Back Connecting Fist, Tiger Form and so on. He realized that all of them had a strength which he was really satisfied with. Their actual ability to deal damage had to be a lot stronger than his own strength.
At one spot within the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, there was an enormous stone platform. On top of it were the Demon Binding Rope, Soulshake Bell, Spirit Gathering Lamp, Heaven Shaking Drum, Coiled Dragon Statue, Spirit Channeling Jade and so on. Of course, there was also the Formation Eye Stone.
The Yang Stone and other forging materials were placed at another stone platform. The case for medicinal pills and herbs on the other hand, were isolated on top of a stone platform. The ingredients and alcohol were all organized neatly. All of these stone platform were near each other, but they weren't stuck against one another. Furthermore, there were a few storeys of them.
The function of the Formation Eye Stone was too significant. After all, Qing Shui knew a lot of formations and by then, the amount of potential which he could unleash would be even bigger. He thought of the time when his grade was still quite low. He wondered just how powerful it would get once he ascended in grade.
Qing Shui put the Yang Stone on the stone platform for forging materials. He even put the sword on there as he planned to reforge it again in the future when necessary.
Only after that did he take out the divine Beast Blood.
There was only a few drops of it within the bottle as it came in a very small quantity. Each drops of it were the size of a thumb and was very thick as it gave out powerful energy fluctuation. When Qing Shui peeked at it with his Heavenly Vision Technique, it only said that it could be fed to beasts to strengthen some of their abilities.
It was just that Qing Shui had the Crimson Pellet of the Nine-headed Moon Wolf's core. That was also a divine Beast from legend. It could strengthen the powerful innate skills of demonic beasts, and would have even greater effect especially to wolf type demonic beasts and demonic beasts with more than one head. The strength which the pellet could increase right away was also quite decent. At the present, it might seem like the amount which it could increase was fairly little but to him at that time, it was already quite a significant amount. Even for magic potions owned by warriors, if a normal person was to eat it, even if their body didn't burst, there would still be a limit to which their strength could increase. Only by getting stronger could one make use of its effects to its maximum potential.
How was the effect of this divine Beast Blood when compared to the Crimson Pellet of the Nine-headed Moon Wolf's Core?

AST 1275 –Ice Silkworm, Ice Silkworm's silk, Rapid, Meeting the Sect Lord of Lotus Sect
Qing Shui was really curious. He used to treat the Crimson Pellet of the Nine-headed Moon Wolf's Core like his own treasure. That was a core, this on the other hand, was blood. Qing Shui once again gazed towards the few drops of divine Beast's Blood and noticed that he wasn't being really attentive when he observed it just now.
It was the Blood Essence of divine Beasts!
Qing Shui smiled. For some unknown reason, he missed out on the crucial word 'essence' previously. By missing that particular word, it would make the value of the object drop drastically. Take humans for example, within their bodies, there was a lot of blood but Blood Essence on the other hand, there was very little of it. Losing even a single drop of it would result in a huge loss to the human. That was what made it unique.
Qing Shui didn't actually let his demonic beasts feed on it right away. He first put it down. And then, he proceeded to take out the last porcelain bottle. Within it, there was a pair of Ice Silkworm eggs.
Ice Silkworm was a unique thing. It was categorized as a demonic beast. In addition to that, it could spit out ice silk. This was the best material to make soft armor, internal armor, undergarments as well as outer clothing. It's said to be immune to knives and swords and also totally resistant to fire and water. Furthermore, it feels unusually comfortable when worn. However, the ice silk was too rare.
However, the Ice Silkworm was also a demonic beast. Furthermore, it's said to be a powerful one. Of course, Qing Shui had never seen an actual one himself. He learned all of this from other people's mouths and from some history books. Don't underestimate the eggs of Ice Silkworms just because they were the size of a thumb, these small little things was said to be able to grow up to a hundred meters or even bigger if the conditions were right.
If it was an Ice Silkworm which reached the size of a hundred meters, it would possess considerably terrifying strength. The Ice Silkworm was also an ancient mutated species. Unfortunately, the conditions to rear it were very harsh. He had never heard of anyone who was able to grow these small Ice Silkworms to such a huge size. Normally, only those that were in the wild had the possibility of doing so. Despite this, the chance for it to achieve it was still very small.
Qing Shui took out the two Ice Silkworm Eggs. There was a trace of faint chilliness on his hand. It was a kind and gentle feeling. Suddenly, he felt something really faint between him and the eggs. It was a really unusual feeling. After that, Qing Shui felt that the Central Palace Blood Essence Pool had started stirring up a little.
Qing Shui was stunned for a moment. A golden light shone on both of his hands. The next thing which happened was that the two Ice Silkworm Eggs disappeared. He quickly looked into the Blood Essence Pool with his Inner Sight. As he peeped on it, he froze in shock. He noticed that a pair of sky-blue colored objects the size of cereal had appeared within the pool.
This was the Ice Silkworm. A newborn Ice Silkworm was this small!
Qing Shui noticed that the Marrow Nibbling Golden Dragon Silkworm seemed to be really excited. He quickly used his consciousness to tell it that it wasn't edible. He was really scared that it would end up being eaten by the Marrow Nibbling Golden Dragon Silkworm.
The current Marrow Nibbling Golden Dragon Silkworm was still really small. It was less than one inch long and had its entire body covered in a gold color. The two tiny dragon horns on its head looked very impressive and both of its eyes the size of rice were also shining brightly. Despite its tiny body, it's streamlined shape gave off the sensation that it was very powerful.
Its dragon's horns had already grown out completely. Qing Shui felt that the current Marrow Nibbling Golden Dragon Silkworm was even more terrifying. It was just like a mini golden dragon, filled with spiritual nature.
As it sensed Qing Shui's thought, the tiny thing immediately sank itself into the Blood Essence Pool. For now, Qing Shui didn't know how powerful or how much destructive power the Marrow Nibbling Golden Dragon Silkworm possessed. In any case, he knew that it was really strong. For now, it could still become one of his trump cards.
Suddenly, Qing Shui remembered the Blood Essence of the divine Beasts. He came up with a thought which scared himself. He wanted to add a drop of divine Beast's Blood Essence into the Central Palace Blood Essence Pool. But very quickly, he rejected his idea.
He felt that this idea was too scary. That was the blood essence of divine Beasts. He was scared that he wouldn't be able to withstand it. He kept having the feeling that this idea was really terrifying. It was just that he couldn't add in the divine Beast's Blood Essence but Qing Shui noticed that he didn't actually add the Violet Golden Blood Droplets from his Violet Golden Bloodline into the Blood Essence Pool.
He carried out the task as soon as he thought about it and immediately guided one drop of the Violet Golden Blood into the Central Palace Blood Essence Pool.
A drop of Violet Golden Blood entered the Blood Essence Pool. It caused Qing Shui to realize that the Blood Essence Pool looked like it had started boiling. That was a kind of richness and mightiness of life force. It was a kind of sensation.
After observing for a while and realizing that there wasn't too much of a situation, Qing Shui released himself from the Inner Sight. He never thought that the clumsy Ice Silkworms would eventually also end up within the Blood Essence Pool. It was just that he didn't know until when its body could grow. Could it adjust the size of its body as it liked? If it couldn't, Qing Shui reckoned that it would have to leave the Blood Essence Pool very soon.
Not long after Qing Shui went out, a person came.
Qing Shui smiled as he welcomed him to the living room, "Brother, how have you been?"
Tian Jiange revealed a bitter smile as he looked at Qing Shui, "Little brother, will it be ok if you show mercy to the Tian Clan?"
"Brother, you are too soft-hearted. If you keep going on like this, one day, it will really cost you dearly. Everyone has to take responsibility of the mistakes which they made. What do you think?"
"I know, can you let them be ordinary people just like Fu Clan? I am aware that you are being put in a difficult position." Tian Jiange knew about the things which Tian Clan had done to Qing Shui before. Even if the current Qing Shui was to wash the entire Tian Clan with blood, people would just find it perfectly normal.
Since Tian Jiange had made such a request, Qing Shui would naturally agree to it. However, quite a lot of them crippled over 50% of their cultivation. This was something which Tian Jiange suggested.
For the following days, not only Tian Clan, the remaining clans had also come to look for Qing Shui with the exception of only one clan. Eventually, Qing Shui ended up killing more than half of the people within the clan involved in the assassination. It was immediately considered to have been diminished.
The world of warriors was like this. Showing kindness to others was equivalent to being cruel to yourself. It was just as stated within the saying that has been passed down since a long time ago, you can't always do as you like, one has to compromise in this world.
At a blink of an eye, yet another few days passed. Qing Shui was aware that the Heaven Secrets Courtyard supported his actions. Or else, they would have stopped him. Now, the Breezing Wind Veranda had already turned out to be a unique existence within the Heaven Secrets Academy.
The Eldest Princess had gone into seclusion. This time, her seclusion was aided by Heaven Secrets Courtyard. By the time she came out, her strength would once again take yet another huge leap. As for to what extent it would go up to, this would depend on her innate skills and determination.
Qing Shui on the other hand, was getting ready to head to Lotus Sect with Di Chen.
Qing Sha, Yan Jinyu and Seventh Princess were still here. However, Qing Shui has already asked the old men to help him look after them.
At the moment when they were about to separate from each other, Qing Sha, like usual, felt reluctant to say goodbye to Qing Shui. Qing Shui once again reassured her by promising her that he would come back very quickly to see her to let her cultivate in peace.
On their journey back to Lotus Sect this time, Di Chen brought Qing Shui out of helplessness. Originally, she wanted to talk to the Sect Lord of Lotus Sect herself. But naturally, Qing Shui would disapprove of it. If by accident, Di Chen got captivated, he would need to go to a lot of trouble to get her back.
The location of Lotus Sect was near Desolate Mountains Regions. It's just that the scenery of the place looked unusually good. It was located at a secluded spot. If it wasn't for Di Chen leading him, he reckoned that he really would have been unable to find this place.
Looking into the distance from the sky, this was a place with enormous mountain valleys. It was shaped like a lotus. The Spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth were gathered together high up in the air. Bamboo houses could be seen standing tall and close together here. There was a type of freshness and pleasantness to it's scenery which couldn't be described in words.
"Let's wait here. Very quickly, there will be people heading here. By then, I will let them notify the Sect Lord." Di Chen stopped and told Qing Shui.
"Alright!" Qing Shui said it indifferently.
Very quickly, two young girls were already flying towards them, "Greetings, Martial Sister!"
Within Lotus Sect, the Holy Maiden was also considered as a Chief Disciple. Hence, people from the same clan as her would address her as their martial sister.
"Help me pass a message to the Sect Lord. Just tell her that there is something which I need to report to her about but I am currently not in a convenient situation to see her." Di Chen said with a smile.
"Alright, I will do it right away!" The two young girls immediately flew away.
"Are you feeling nervous?" Qing Shui looked at Di Chen and smiled.
"A bit. She treats me really well. I don't feel good making her sad," Di Chen said helplessly.
"This place is a female temple. Patroness, you have yet to completely set your heart on the mundane. You are still not able to depart from the world of mortals."
"Be more serious, my master is going to be here anytime soon," Di Chen said with a smile.
Very quickly, a woman could already be seen appearing in the distance. She was a middle-aged woman who looked a bit old. Half of her hair had already turned white. There were a few wrinkles on her face. However, from her current appearance, one could tell that she used to also be an extreme beauty. She didn't reveal any smile on her face. Upon seeing Qing Shui and Di Chen, she had been fixing her gaze at Qing Shui himself.
"Are you planning to cripple Chen`Er's cultivation?"
The old lady stared directly at Qing Shui as soon as she arrived in front of them and asked him the question.
"It's not that I am planning to cripple her cultivation, it's Lotus Sect that's planning to steal away my woman." Qing Shui was not in the least afraid of the old lady.
A faint aura could be felt fluctuating vigorously around the old lady's body. After that, she moved her sight to Di Chen, "You are the Holy Maiden of Lotus Sect. You know what you're supposed to do. You can do whatever you like. But the only thing which I forbid you from touching are things that have to do with relationships. If you ever commit to that, your entire life will be done for."
"Don't use your own experience as teaching materials. Don't deny every single man around the world just because you got hurt by one of them. If everyone had been like you, humans would have died out on the entire continent," Qing Shui said coldly.
The old lady's body trembled. She shot Qing Shui a glare like a knife. As soon as she moved her body, the gold colored sword in her hand immediately landed on Qing Shui's shoulder.
Qing Shui's body immediately got blown backwards. He spurted out a mouthful of fresh blood.
"Qing Shui!" Di Chen quickly ran towards Qing Shui and held him.
"Why didn't you dodge it?" Di Chen asked.
At the moment when the old lady saw Di Chen's expression, the killing intent within her eyes got even stronger.
"She is your master. In any case, she is considered to have helped you ever since you came here. I am willing to take this hit. This way, I will feel at ease while taking you away," Qing Shui said gently.
Now, his body physique was extremely outstanding. From outsider's perspective, they would think that his bones would have been crushed completely upon receiving this blow. But only Qing Shui knew there was merely a crack. Furthermore, it would heal up very quickly.
"Don't compare the disciples of Lotus Sect to the prostitutes in the vulgar world. They're not fit to be compared against." The cold voice of the old woman came through. The things which Qing Shui said previously had really stirred her up emotionally.
"Then what are you? Are you a prostitute?" Qing Shui asked while rubbing off the blood at the corner of his mouth.
"You impudent child!"
"Haha, what right do you have to strip off the rights of your disciples to enjoy the affections between men and women. Could it be that you thought you could do it just because of your strength? Don't you think that you're playing the bully in this case?" Qing Shui smiled while looking at the old lady.
"You are deluding people with lies. I cannot bear to even take your words into my ears."
"Then why would you get cheated on back then……"
"You, shut the hell up!"
The old woman shouted loudly. After that, she charged towards Qing Shui. Qing Shui gently pushed back Di Chen into a distance with his palm and activated the Nine Palace Steps.
Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation!
Originally, whenever Qing Shui unleashed his Nine Palace Steps, his strength would increase significantly. Now, with the addition Formation Eye Stone, Qing Shui felt all the more like a tiger that had grown wings. As for the damage which he withstood from before, it was diverted away from the vital parts of his body with Qing Shui's Minute Subtlety. Under allowed conditions, the damage he received was lowered down to its minimum.
Qing Shui very easily avoided the attacks of the old woman.
This made the old woman feel really shocked. Previously, the weakening in strength she received from him already made her feel extremely surprised. Considering that he was able to weaken people who had cultivated up to this grade, he should possess quite a decent cultivation himself. But he was so young……
"How about this, let’s come to an agreement with each other."
"Don't even think about it!"
Just like this, Qing Shui would constantly change between Taichi Fist, Back Connecting Fist, Tiger Form, Crane Form, Bear Steps while fighting against the old woman. He was unpredictable but at the same time also extremely strong and violent.
