Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1288-1290
AST 1288 –Treasure Hunting Pig, Broken Arm, You Cannot Cultivate
Previously when he got locked on by this Spiritual Sense, half of the huge amount of flying beasts were now either gravely injured or dead. At that time, Qing Shui still didn't know where the Spiritual Sense, that was locked onto him, came from. However, he now finally realized that it actually came from the Poisonous Python King!
As the Poisonous Python King together with the terrifying poisonous whirlwind charged towards him, Qing Shui immediately summoned the Nine Continents Mountain.
Right now, the attacking prowess of the Nine Continents Mountain was already above 4,400 sun. Even though it was still quite a huge gap compared to the current Poisonous Python King, Qing Shui still had other techniques up his sleeve.
He once again swayed his right hand.
Vajra Buddha Devil Rod, Fourth Staff, Five Soaring Waves!
Qing Shui didn't really panicked as he observed the impact brought upon by the Poisonous Python King. He operated his Area Dominance and Nature Energy all the way to the maximum. Even though the Nature Energy and the Immovable Mountains were all fusing into the Seven-colored Pellet, this didn't cause any delay in its usage.
At the moment when the Poisonous Python King and the Nine Continents Mountain clashed, Qing Shui's Vajra Buddha Devil Rod also collided against the Nine Continents Mountain. The enormous, golden rod illuminated and made the entire sky really bright.
Consecutive exploding noises rang forth and Qing Shui backed off. Even though he a had really violent force, he was unable to block against the collision brought upon by the Poisonous Python King. If it wasn't because of the Nine Continents Mountain being tough enough, it was likely that he would have been crushed to bits and pieces. Or rather, he would have been consumed by the poisonous liquid.
The body of the Poisonous Python King also came to a stop as a result of being obstructed. However, it moved its body once again and charged towards him. It shot out a ray of black, shiny liquid towards Qing Shui like a ray of light.
The terrifying feature of the Poisonous Python King was its poison. However, do not assume that its other features weren't incredible as its speed and attack prowess were also abnormally powerful. It was a poisonous beast and at the same time, it was the king among huge demonic beasts. On top of its head, there was a black crown which made it looked more incomparably domineering.
Sacred Jade divine Stone Ring!
Heart Follows Intent!
Qing Shui avoided the swift thread of poison. After that, he once again unleashed the Vajra Subdues Demon and his Emperor's Qi with the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant.
Prior to this, he had already weakened it quite significantly so naturally, the weakening effect this time would be less dramatic. It immediately weakened the strength of the opponent by nearly 2,000 sun. Despite this, it still had strength worth more than 9,000 sun.
Even though the gap in strength was still quite big, Qing Shui felt that he might be able to stand up against it now.
Qing Shui got careless and got struck by it. Luckily, he had the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation and Nature Energy. He dodged it in a hurry and unleashed the Seal of Roc.
Even after all of these, Qing Shui was still surging with Qi and blood. However, he felt a bit dizzy. The golden star within his Sea of Consciousness shone and after that, an unusual energy immediately made him lost his dizziness.
Seal of Xuantian!
The enormous, silver platform immediately landed on the Poisonous Python King's body. Right at this moment, the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant locked onto the Poisonous Python King with its Diamond Sword Qi.
As this happened, it caused the speed which it was proud of to be reduced significantly. The Thunderous Beast picked this moment to unleash a Thunderbolt.
Tidal Cloud Waves Seal!
Qing Shui had already calculated all of these early up in the battle. The Poisonous Python King actually possessed the intelligence of a man, Qing Shui was scared that it would abandon him and deal with his own demonic beasts.
Actually, Lu Zitai could have quickly eliminated Qing Shui once he used his divine Beast Possession. Naturally, he wouldn't show any concern to the demonic beasts around him. By the time Qing Shui died, it would be really easy for him to take out those demonic beasts of his.
Seal of Roc!
Seal of Roc!
Qing Shui casted two consecutive Seals of Roc.
The Poisonous Python King, which lost its advantages in speed, had become a smaller threat to Qing Shui. In the meantime, the Thunderous Beast controlled the situation of the battle from far away. It continuously struck its Thunderbolt at the Poisonous Python King.
Since the beginning, Lu Zitai didn't really show much concern to the Thunderbolt attacks. However, he finally came to realize its effect as the time passed. Unfortunately, by the time he came to his senses, it was already too late.
Seal of Roc!
Qing Shui finally met the chance to double his attack prowess in the Seal of Roc that he had unleashed this time. It immediately bombarded the Poisonous Python King backward and caused it to let out a blood-curdling screech. Despite this, Qing Shui had already managed to inflict a light injury on it.
After all, even after he doubled in strength, the gap between their strength wasn't actually that huge. A strength which was worth 9,000 sun and more was something bearable as Qing Shui's attack was worth roughly around 12,000 sun.
In any case, it was still better if his strength doubled. The formidable power that burst out at that moment made Qing Shui felt especially powerful. He was hoping so badly that he could just unleash this kind of strength without any extra troubles.
The sudden burst of the strength of Qing Shui gave Lu Zitai a big shock and he found it to be totally unbelievable.The Thunderous Beast was very cautious. It chose the moment when he was absent-minded and sent out continuous waves of Thunderbolts which struck the Poisonous Python King.
Qing Shui smiled as he observed the panicked Poisonous Python King. "Even with your divine Beast Possession, you will still die. But I am really interested in your divine Beast Possession for a fact. If you are able to give it out, I will let you go."
It was true that Qing Shui found great interest in the divine Beast Possession. Of course, he doubted that the enemy would hand it over to him.
"Well, handing it over to you is not a problem. But how shall I believe that you will let me go once you take your stuff?" Lu Zitai spoke an answer which Qing Shui found hard to believe.
"Once you spilled it out, you will at least have a 50% chance to survive. Of course, the precondition for it is that you have to believe in me. The words which I said all had enormous weight. If you don't believe me, the only option you are left with is to die." Qing Shui responded with a smile.
"Well then, let's only talk about this again once you managed to force me to the borderline between life and death!"
Lu Zitai let out a huge scream. After that, the enormous Poisonous Python King began to coil up its body in a strange manner. It abruptly let loose and whipped itself towards Qing Shui. Its thick body was nimble and quick like a light.
Black liquid could be seen bursting out from its body and looked really bright and glistening. Even an ordinary person would be able to tell that it was a fatal existence once he or she got their hands on it. It was a fatal existence colored in black.
Nine Place Step Great Reversal!
Violet Lightning Strike!
Bloodthirsty Demonic Vine!
Qing Shui finished all of these in an instant. Even though for now, he needed a bit of time to activate the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines, but even when under the effect of Violet Lightning Strike, he was still able to unleash it.
The enormous Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines trapped the Poisonous Python King. Meanwhile, for safety purposes, the Seven-Headed Demonic Dragon Spider shot out layers of Corrosive Poison Web and covered it around the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines.
The Poisonous Python King let out a tragic scream. However, the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines wasn't capable of killing the Poisonous Python King within a short period of time. Nevertheless, the Poisonous Python King was also unable to break free from it. The other old man on the other hand, had also been played to death by the few demonic beasts.
The other old man that had been weakened was totally unable to withstand the combined attacks unleashed by the demonic beasts.
"Can you say it now?" Qing Shui asked while he looked at Lu Zitai that was trapped.
"For now, I still don't feel any threat of losing my life. At least for now, or for a short period of time, nothing will be able to threaten my well-being. Even though I am unable to break free from this, you are also unable to kill me. I think my savior will come anytime soon." Lu Zitai saw himself completely covered up. He felt that nothing from outside should be able to harm him.
"It seems that you won't give up unless you lose something!" Qing Shui smiled and summoned the Treasure Hunting Pig.
As soon as Qing Shui gave out the order, the Treasure Hunting Pig quickly made its way towards the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vine and charged towards the place where Lu Zitai was. It was as if it was biting whatever it was in front as it progressed forward. It didn't matter whether it was the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines or the Corrosive Poison Web, it was like nothing in front of it.
"Stop!" Lu Zitai let out a tragic scream.
The Treasure Hunting Pig right away broke one of Lu Zitai's arms. It even created a hole, which was one meter in size, on the body of the Poisonous Python King. If it wasn't because of the Poisonous Python King's huge body, it was likely that it would have received a heavy injury from it.
The Treasure Hunting Pig was a Spiritual Medicinal Beast. It was a Spiritual Beast as well as a Treasure Beast. It was immune to all sorts of poison. Nor did it fear blades and swords. It's very difficult for warriors below False God Realm to injure it. Hence, once a person got trapped by it, this tiny little thing would turn out to be one of Qing Shui's terrifying weapon.
"Say it. Actually, I'm quite interested in it but I have very little patience." Qing Shui said calmly.
"Let go of me. The duration of my Beast divinity Body Possession is almost up. If not, I will die right away." Lu Zitai said anxiously with his face looking extremely pale.
"Don't worry, you won't die."
Very quickly, the old man left the state of Beast divinity Body Possession. The Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines didn't actually initiate any attacks on him. Despite this, he was unable to get himself away from the restraint of the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines.
A Beast Leather Book flew out and Qing Shui grabbed it. On top of it, there were the words divine Beast Possession. However, the one he got was a handwritten one. This wasn't all that surprising, it's most likely also because the old man held quite a honorable position that he had a handwritten copy of the book. There were only very few people among the barbarians as well as Desolate Sect who were able to cultivate it.
Qing Shui read through it very briefly. It was in perfect condition and haven't really been damaged. As a matter of fact, he also felt that the book has been around for quite some time. Hence, he thought that the book should be real.
The divine Beast Possession Lu Zitai gave Qing Shui was real. It's just that he didn't mention the most crucial thing about it, which was that if a person without the blood of Beast Blood Tribe flowing in them was to cultivate it, their body would burst and as a result, they would die.
Only people with blood of Beast Blood Tribe was able to cultivate it. Even if they only possessed a little bit of it. There were a lot of people from Desolate Sect who possessed the blood of Beast Blood Tribe. But only a minority of them possessed more of it than average.
This wasn't always a good thing. The more blood a person contained, the more powerful he would be. But at the same time, they would think more differently compared to ordinary people. The Beast Blood Tribe was also vanishing slowly. This kind of disappearance didn't result from death, it was due to the fact that their later generations were having lesser and lesser blood belonging to that of Beast Blood Tribe flowing in them. It's likely that after a certain period of time, they would disappear. Even if they didn't, only very few would remain. They would then be not much different from ordinary people.
Lu Zitai had long since planned everything in his mind. Prior to this, he got really happy when he saw Qing Shui showing interest towards divine Beast Possession. The reason being that he was aware that even if he died, Qing Shui would still end up getting the book. In fact, he had hoped that this very young man would cultivate the divine Beast Possession. It would be best if he cultivated it until his body bursted.
However, he couldn't make it too obvious. Actually, he had never once thought that Qing Shui would show him mercy. Right now, the only thing in his mind was to choke this very young man to death.
"Leave, I mean what I say. But next time, if you are to ever run into me again, I will not let you go." Qing Shui was someone who wouldn't back out on his promise. Besides, he also got the Beast divinity Body Possession. It should be considered as a quite a terrifying battle technique.
"Are you really going to let me go?" Lu Zitai found it hard to believe.
"If you don't leave, I won't mind leaving you here forever." Qing Shui didn't even bother to look at Lu Zitai.
Lu Zitai left. Qing Shui proceeded to sabotage the entire area and collected a few Interspatial Silk Sachets. Right before he was about to leave, a woman appeared.
It was Tantai Xuan's master.
That old fairy, the fatally attractive woman.The woman who had eyes that were bright like the moon in the night sky and the woman who was mature all the way to her bone marrow.
"Senior, why are you here?" Qing Shui was really surprised to see such a beautiful woman here.
"I'm here to tell you that the Beast divinity Body Possession was something which cannot be cultivated." The woman explained with a faint smile.
Actually, Qing Shui had already sensed something from her. Naturally, this woman was already aware of what these people were up to. It was just that he didn't know if she came here because she was worried about him.
"Cannot be cultivated? Why?" Qing Shui asked in suspicion.

AST 1289- Five Elements divine Flag, Husband and Wife's Flag? Treasure
Qing Shui still felt a bit shocked upon hearing the things that the woman said. He had witnessed the formidable feature of the divine Beast Possession. Most importantly, the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation on his body was the Earth Diamond Bear. If he could cultivate the Beast divinity Body Possession, the Earth Diamond Bear he summoned would definitely be extremely strong. But now, the things that the woman said felt like cold water poured onto his head. Despite this, he did not give up. He wanted to see if there were any ways he could use it to make amends.
"There are two conditions in cultivating divine Beast Possession. The first condition, you must have the bloodline from the Beast Blood Tribe. Secondly, your strength cannot be below seven thousand sun." By the time the woman started speaking, she was already in front of Qing Shui.
A faint fragrance flowed into Qing Shui's nose. This was not the smell of any ingredients. On the contrary, it was the unique fragrance that came from the woman's body.
He unconsciously sniffled. He felt a bit infatuated by the smell. He did not really make it that obvious. Despite this, the woman still managed to notice it. She got a little grumpy, but she soon smiled, "Did you hear my words? Would you like to get your nose all the way here to smell me?"
Qing Shui awkwardly rubbed his nose and said with a smile, "I heard you. What would happen if someone without the bloodline from the Beast Blood Tribe cultivated it?"
"The would die as a result of their body bursting," the woman said gently.
Everything has become clear to Qing Shui. No wonder Lu Zitai would give him the divine Beast Possession. It was obvious that he was trying to deceive and kill him with this method. After all, people not from the Beast Blood Tribes would not be able to cultivate it. Even if they were from the tribe, they would need to be at least seven thousand sun strong to cultivate it. At least seven thousand sun worth of strength, which one of these people from both the Desolate Sect and Beast Blood Tribe were not well-known figures?
Qing Shui was not really surprised by the answer. However, he did not know if his own bloodline was fit to cultivate it. He did not know if he should try it recklessly. The consequences were too serious. Despite this, the divine Beast Possession was very tempting. It would be a waste if he gave up on it now.
"Senior, Lu Zitai also mentioned to me before that other people from the Desolate Sect would also head here. I wonder if you have heard about this as well?" Qing Shui asked after thinking a bit.
"Don't worry, this time, they mainly came to test how deep our water is. I assume that they will make a temporary retreat for now. Even if they really have a plan, they will still need to take their time to come up with a decision," the woman explained with a smile.
"Oh, that is good too."
"Qing Shui, just how strong are you? You have indeed made me gain a whole new level of respect for you." The woman blinked her bright eyes and looked at Qing Shui curiously.
Qing Shui shook his head, "There should still be a small gap between you and I. In fact, it might be even bigger than that. I noticed that you are the most hidden person across the Western Oxhe Continent.
"Oh, you think so highly of me," the woman expressed with a faint smile on her face.
"It's the truth!"
"Alright, they should be gone. Do you not welcome me there?"
At this moment, both Tantai Xuan and Yu Ruyan could be seen flying toward them from far away.
"What do you mean? I can't wait to welcome you into it." As Qing Shui finished speaking, both of them approached Tantai Xuan and Yu Ruyan.
With the addition of one more woman, the manor would be a lot more lively. But they would have to somehow act a bit more reserved. After all, with the woman around, Qing Shui would have to be a bit more tactful when talking to the two girls.
Even though Tantai Xuan and Qing Shui had yet to establish a distinct relationship, in general, their relationship could be considered determined. The woman stayed blank for a while. In just a short moment, she was already able to discern the atmosphere around the three.
"Eh, little lass, so fast?" The woman looked at Tantai Xuan and asked with a smile. Her smile looked a bit teasing.
"Master, what are you saying? I have never done anything with him." Tantai Xuan said, feeling a bit diffident.
"Yes, I never mentioned that you have done anything with him. Just look at you, you got so anxious, just like you're about to do something," the woman chuckled.
It was impossible for Tantai Xuan to be a match for this woman. With just a few words, she was already able to put Tantai Xuan into a completely passive position. Perspicacious people would be able to tell that there was something fishy going on between her and Qing Shui.
The woman did not really go any further in teasing Tantai Xuan. Instead, she smiled and gave her some words of motivation. This made Qing Shui once again feel the comfort of having an open-minded master.
Both of the girls went back to their rooms. Previously, Tantai Xuan had run away due to feeling extremely shy. Yu Ruyan, on the other hand, went on to accompany her.
"Qing Shui, have you been planning anything recently?" The woman asked Qing Shui.
"I plan to look for the Demon Lord. I want to ask her how I can head back to the five continents." Right now, Qing Shui felt really eager to find that woman. It seemed really easy for her to shuttle back and forth across the nine continents.
"Demon Lord? It's very likely that she's in the Demon Lord Palace right now." In the beginning, the woman looked a bit surprised. Nevertheless, she still responded to him while maintaining her composure.
"I know, forget it. Lets only talk about it when we get the chance to do so." Qing Shui shook his head. In any case, both Canghai Mingyue and Mingyue Gelou would not be able to make it here because they had to look after the children. It was also fine this way as they would be able to temporarily accompany his mother and grandfather. It was just that this would bring a bit of hardship on them. In fact, he actually missed them too.
"Do you want to meet someone on the five continents? Or are you planning to bring someone from there over here?" The woman asked gently when she saw Qing Shui's furrowed brows.
"It's best if I could bring them over. Or rather, a good alternative would be letting me be able to see them regularly," Qing Shui explained slowly. He felt a bit confused everytime he thought about this problem.
"I have something here which may pique your interest but it's a substandard product. Five Elements divine Flag. I hope it may be of help to you." The woman took out a flag with five colors. It was around an inch in size. The colors of the five elements looked complete on top of the flag. A faint spiritual fluctuation could be felt from it as well.
Qing Shui looked at the woman and unconsciously took the small flag. He realized that there was not anything special about it. He tried to fill it in with his own Spirit Energy and divine Force but to no avail. However, as soon as he filled it with his Qi of Ancient Strengthening Technique, a loud exploding noise was heard. The entire world turned quiet.
Suddenly, Qing Shui realized that it was as if he had entered an independent space. This space was not really huge but it contained a weird power. The place around here was filled with blurry white mists. He was unable to progress forward no matter where he went. The only thing here was a map carved out from an enormous stone.
Qing Shui moved his sight toward the map. As he did so, he became stunned because it was a map of the World of the Nine Continents. The more Qing Shui looked at the proportion of the sizes of these continents, the more anxious he felt. The more he looked at it, the more he was able to feel how large the three continents were. Most importantly, Qing Shui now knew how to travel to the five continents.
If Qing Shui kept traveling east after passing through Desolate Mountains Regions and Southern Sea until he reached Western Sea Region, he would be able to arrive on the five continents. Ninety nine percent of this journey was waterway. Once he reached the Southern Sea, if he kept heading south-west would find himself at the other three continents.
Qing Shui looked at these proportions while calculating his own speed. He found that he would still need a long time to travel to the five continents. It was likely to be longer than a few years time. Qing Shui once again remembered the Demon Lord and that old turtle of hers. He felt that she relied precisely on the old turtle to travel back and forth between the continents. If he was not mistaken, the old turtle must have a remarkable ability in water.
After that, Qing Shui looked at his own Nine Continents Map and started contemplating. This should be the internal part of the Five Elements divine Flag. It should also be a treasure. He had a feeling that this should be something similar to the Shrinking Ruler.
Very quickly, Qing Shui withdrew himself from it. He did not know how long it had been. In any case, the woman was now looking at him curiously. After that, he looked toward the flag with his Heavenly Vision Technique.
Five Elements divine Flag!
It did not have a grade. For now, zero checkpoints could be placed on the map. The amounts of checkpoints allowed could increase as the ascension in grades. The user could travel back and forth between these places. The time needed and its grade had a bit of limitation.
State: Yet to recognize an owner.
Method to recognize its owner: Has to offer a blood sacrifice with the user's own Blood Essence until the owner recognizing process succeeds.
It needed to be refined with Blood Essence for it to ascend a grade.
Right now, Qing Shui felt really agitated. The reason being that he knew what this was now. This was the flying flag from the Odd Evasion Door Cycle. To think that something like this would truly exist across the continents.
He used his Heavenly Vision Technique to learn the refining method. It was likely that the woman did not know how to use this.
"Senior, I know the way to use this thing. It's too precious. Let me tell you the way to use it." Qing Shui handed it back to her after thinking for a while. He really wanted to have it though.
The woman smiled, "There was no error in my judgment. Stop addressing me as senior. If you don't mind, you can call me Martial Aunt." The woman did not really catch a hold of the Five Elements divine Flag.
"Martial Aunt!" Qing Shui called out to her in a strange tone.
"Hello Martial Nephew, I'll treat this as a meeting present for you. Do you like it?"
"Yes, I do……" Qing Shui had a feeling that this woman was like a fox. The kind of fox with a dignified appearance. She was a mature and pure enchantress with an alluring and extremely attractive body.
"But this is too precious." Qing Shui once again emphasized this.
"I have one more of the same thing. Yours is the male version, mine is the female……"
Qing Shui, "……."
After that, the woman took out yet another Five Elements divine Flag. Compared to Qing Shui's one, this flag was a bit smaller. Qing Shui once again looked into it with his Heavenly Vision Technique and noticed a change happening on top of the flag. This change made Qing Shui's eyes go bright.
Five Elements divine Flag (Wife)……
The one that Qing Shui had first set his sights on was the small one. In other words, the Five Elements divine Flag that the woman held.
Qing Shui sweated a little when he saw the word 'wife'. Nevertheless, he continued looking down after shaking his head.
It did not have a grade for now, there were zero checkpoints that could be set within the map of the Five Elements divine Flag. Following the ascensions in grade, the amount of checkpoints that can be set would increase. The user can travel back and forth around these places. Its grade and time had a bit of a limitation.
State: Yet to recognize an owner!
The method to recognize an owner: Offer sacrifice to it with one's Blood Essence until it succeeds in recognizing its owner.
Blood Essence was needed to refine it in order for it to ascend a grade.
It could teleport the person with the Five Elements divine Flag (Husband) to the other's side.There were no limitations apart from the fact that only the two people with the flags could use them.
The final attribute was extremely powerful. For example, when one was running for their life or when one was coming back from another continent in a hurry to provide aid. But this was a bit difficult. The reason being that they would not know when the other person was in danger. Hence, it would be more realistic to use it to escape with one's life.
"These flags are husband and wife's Five Elements divine Flag. It's inappropriate for me to have it. You should return this to your husband." Qing Shui felt a bit reluctant when he passed it back to the woman.
"I don't have a husband nor do I plan to look for one. Take it. You've already called me Martial Aunt. You are a man, it will look a bit fake if you keep on being so wordy." The response the woman gave him made Qing Shui immediately keep the flags.
"This flag can enable the two owners to teleport themselves to each other's side. There were no other limitations to it. It would be quite nice to use it to teleport to another place if you were in danger," Qing Shui explained to the woman about the Five Elements divine Flag.
"Well, that is not bad. It's quite good at keeping yourself alive. For example, it would have been easy if you want to head back to the five continents." the woman explained with a smile.
"The more significant uses of the Five Elements divine Flag is that it can be used to teleport yourself to many places. Martial Aunt, to do this, you need to first let it recognize its owner with your Blood Essence."
"I have dripped my Blood Essence on top of it before but I received no response at all," the woman said in an upset tone.

AST 1290 –Recognizing an owner. Stepping towards the Great Gate of Heavenly Dao
"I dripped my Blood Essence on top of it before but I received no response from it," the woman said in an upset tone.
"You need to continue using your Blood Essence until it successfully recognizes you as its owner," Qing Shui explained patiently.
"I see, so that's the case. No wonder I never succeeded. Hey, how did you learn that? Is it true? You aren't trying to just make me happy, are you?" she gave Qing Shui a weird look.
Qing Shui smiled. He did not really need to say anything more. He once again used his Heavenly Vision Technique to take a peek at the Five Elements divine Flag in his hand.
Five Elements divine Flag (Husband)!
It did not have a grade. For now, zero checkpoints could be placed on the map. The amounts of checkpoints allowed could increase according to the ascension in grades. The user could travel back and forth between these places. The time needed and its grade had a bit of limitation.
State: Yet to recognize an owner.
Method to recognize its owner: Has to offer a blood sacrifice with the user's own Blood Essence until the owner recognition process succeeds.
It needed to be refined with Blood Essence for it to ascend a grade.
It could teleport the person with the Five Elements divine Flag (Wife) to each other's side.There were no limitations apart from the fact that only the two people with the flags could use them.
Qing Shui pierced himself with the Golden Needle. After that, he forced out the Blood Essence from his Central Palace Blood Essence Pool and dripped it on the Five Elements divine Flag. One drop, two drops……
The Blood Essence in a person's body was particularly precious. With every bit of Blood Essence he dripped on the flag, he would feel his heart aching. After all, it was already considered quite excellent if a drop of this blood essence could recover after a few days. When necessary, he might even need medicinal pills to help boost the recovery rate.
Very quickly, he has already dripped ten drops of his Blood Essence on it. Even Qing Shui's face began to look pale. The woman beside him also had her brows slightly knitted.
A hundred drops!
The instant the hundredth drop of Blood Essence fell on it, the Five Elements divine Flag suddenly shone really brightly. A powerful Spiritual Energy spread out into the surroundings. The entire Five Elements divine Flag looked incomparably brilliant.
Qing Shui only took another peek at the Five Elements divine Flag after the light disappeared.
Five Elements divine Flag (Husband)!
It did not have a grade but it can be refined with Blood Essence once a day. For now, zero checkpoints could be placed on the map. The amounts of checkpoints allowed could increase as the ascension in grades. The user could travel back and forth between these places. The time needed and its grade had a bit of limitation.
State: Already recognized its owner.
Can teleport the person with Five Elements divine Flag (Wife) to the other's side without restriction. Limited to the two people who own the Five Elements divine Flags.
Qing Shui dripped another drop of Blood Essence right away. After that, he operated his divine Force and spread it all the way around the Five Elements divine Flag. He completed one refinement. Maybe because it was the first time, or maybe it had something to do with his blood Essence but he felt that the refinement this time had caused its range to significantly increase. It might take just a few days for it to achieve First Grade.
"Martial Aunt, why don't you let that one recognize an owner as well? I'll tell you the way to refine it." Qing Shui asked with a smile after thinking for a while.
The woman smiled and nodded. After that, she began forcing out her Blood Essence. Drop after drop of Blood Essence fell down on top of the Five Elements divine Flag. However, Qing Shui became confused because it actually successfully recognized its owner on the eightieth drop.
After she succeeded, Qing Shui gave her a weird look. There seemed to already be a bit of unusual connection between them. It felt really strange. It was even to a point where they felt as if their blood has connected with each other. Unknowingly, that would make the two feel a bit closer but..this actually made Qing Shui panic a bit.
It seemed that the woman might have also felt it. However, she was really natural about it. As for the refining method, Qing Shui did not feel the need to explain it to her because she was already able to sense the message that Qing Shui was able to see.
She only felt like the flags looked like a pair and was unconvinced by Qing Shui's words. She had assumed that Qing Shui was avoiding the flag because he thought it was really precious. Only now did she find out that his words were real. Furthermore, there seemed to be a mutual reaction between them now. For example, they were able to feel each other's minds as well as sensed if the other party was in danger.
After the woman had also finished refining the flag, she finally realized how precious this thing was. If she had not run into Qing Shui, she would have seen it as a defective product. After all, very few items would actually use Blood Essence to recognize its owner. Furthermore, even if someone were to drop Blood Essence on it, very few people would actually manage to drop more than ten drops. The main issue was that they did not know if they would succeed or not if they continued. Normally, one drop was all it took for it to succeed. Hence, if that failed, they would give up on it.
After he Five Elements divine Flag recognises an owner, it would be able to enter the Dantian. Right now, it was floating on top of the Golden Pellet.
On one side of the Golden Pellet, there was the Big Dipper Sword. On the other side, it was the Nine Continents Mountain…… 突然青水神识一变，出现在青水面前的丹田变了，金丹没了取而代之是一个穿着金色铠甲的小人，铠甲上有着大地金刚熊的图案，左手拿着北斗七星剑，右手托着九州山，肩膀那里插着五行神旗，小人散发出撕天裂地的气势，而那个小人的样子居然是自己…… Suddenly, a change occurred to Qing Shui's Spiritual Sense. The Dantian in front of Qing Shui changed. The Golden Pellet was gone. It was replaced by a small person in golden armor. On top of the armor was an image of the Diamond Earth Bear. It held the Big Dipper Sword in its left hand and supported the Nine Continents Mountain with its right. Around its shoulder, there was the Five Elements divine Flag attached it. The tiny person gave out an earth shattering aura. To Qing Shui's surprise, the tiny person actually had the same face as himself.
The scene changed. Qing Shui found himself in mid-air. Around him were powerful warriors and demonic beasts. As he swung his hand, the enormous Nine Continents Mountain crashed into them with a rumble. Then they immediately disappeared. He swung his hand again and took out something that resembled a grey colored enormous dragon. At the moment when he swung it, it caused the earth and sky to change color. The Primordial Flame Dragon Whip, this was then the true Primordial Flame Dragon Whip…
The scene change once again. It went back to the past when Qing Shui was jeered at by everyone. He was young and he only had his mother's love to support him. That was until he started working hard later on. After that, he experienced a lot and a lot of things. How many times had he wandered around the borderline of life-and-death? In the middle of those scenes, his wives and close female friends also appeared.
It was a simple summary of the paths that he had taken all this time. Despite this, these scenes actually managed to display the various nature a person had.
Qing Shui was stunned, was this an illusion? Or was it trying to tell him something? He did not know how long it had been. He once again looked toward his Dantian. He watched as the tiny person in the golden armor slowly turned back into the old Golden Pellet. As this happened, he was released from those scenes.
By the time that he came back to his senses, the sky was already dark. It was almost night. He remembered clearly that prior to this, it was not even mid-noon yet. It just felt like a short while but half a day have already passed.
Qing Shui saw that the woman was still standing by his side. In fact, she was still in the same position as before. At this moment, she was looking at Qing Shui in surprise. He did not know that she was actually feeling extremely agitated deep down now.
"Time flies. I was just distracted for a while and the sky is already dark," Qing Shui said, a bit embarrassed.
At this moment, the woman speechlessly rolled her eyes, "If being distracted is all it takes to step over the entrance to Heavenly Dao, how many people would have already turned into exceptionally expert warriors? You are a wolf, why are you trying to pretend to be a sheep?"
Qing Shui was stunned. If this was put into his own language, it would mean that he knew what was going on but pretended to know nothing, like he was acting a play in front of her.
After he heard her words, Qing Shui was shocked. The matter that shocked him was those words about him stepping over the Great Gate of Heavenly Dao. That path was the change to his Dantian that he had witnessed himself. Maybe it was also that vision of his terrifying strength in the future?
"I stepped over the Great Gate of Heavenly Dao?" Qing Shui looked at the woman, confused.
"The things that you saw just now meant that you have entered the huge entrance to Heavenly Dao." The woman looked at Qing Shui with a faint smile.
"You can also see the things that I saw?" Qing Shui asked curiously.
"I benefited a lot from you today because of the Five Elements divine Flag. Previously, I also saw the things that you saw. Furthermore, I can also be strangely considered to have stepped across the Great Gate of Heavenly Dao. I was able to feel very clearly the things that you felt just now, especially your emotions. But don't worry, there's nothing else I can sensed other than that. If you don't believe you can try using the link to sense my emotions as well. In any case, I would still have to thank you.. You are truly a real man with great persistence." At this moment, her joyous look was something really hard to describe. This was the first time that Qing Shui had seen such a surprised expression from her.
Qing Shui was stunned. He never thought that things like this was possible. But it was not bad that things were this way. Especially regarding the last part, was she praising him? He smiled and replied, "Martial Aunt, what benefits do I get from stepping over the Great Gate of Heavenly Dao?"
"You will find out if you try." The woman smiled. The moment she finished speaking, she attempted to hit him with a palm.
Qing Shui instinctively grabbed her hand. As soon as his hand moved out, everything became clear to Qing Shui. The woman did not try to avoid him. Instead, she let him grabbed her arm as he liked.
Qing Shui came to a realization. Currently, his every move carried with it an immense feeling of being one with nature. This was a mysterious feeling, the same feeling an ordinary person would feel when he destroys a small mountain in one blow.
Once he had stepped across the huge gate to the Heavenly Dao, he would be able to fight against people twice his strength who had not stepped across the huge gate. For example, warriors with ten thousand sun worth of strength that stepped across the gate could beat warriors with strength worth twenty thousand sun who had not managed to step across it.
This was the miraculous aspect of the Heavenly Dao. It was a very mystical strength. Since ancient times, only extreme prodigies were actually able to step into the huge Heavenly Dao gate.
"Other than that, if you plan to break through all the way to the False God realm, you will have to step into the huge gate of the Heavenly Dao." The woman explained with a smile.
Upon hearing her words, Qing Shui realized that he was still holding her arm. He embarrassedly let it go. On the other hand, she acted totally natural about it. However, she mentioned, "Do you feel that I'm already old?"
"Absolutely not!" Qing Shui immediately went on to assure her.
"I'm definitely considered young among people who cultivate. I'm still quite young." The woman immediately went back to her room in the manor when she finished speaking.
Qing Shui scratched his head. Why did she say that?
He had somehow got himself another Martial Aunt. In fact, he used to call Zhu Qing Third Martial Aunt in the past. However, their relationship had changed and Zhu Qing would not really let Qing Shui call her that. However, Qing Shui would jokingly call her Martial Aunt when they were enjoying themselves. It would make her reach her climax very fast.
And now, he just got himself another Martial Aunt. But this one was too mysterious. Qing Shui has never once seen through her thoughts. She has managed to hide herself too well.
But these things were no longer important. The most important thing was that he crossed over the huge gate to Heavenly Dao. This way, he would be able to absorb the feedback strength from the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant.
Thinking up to this point, Qing Shui felt agitated. He has actually stumbled into the huge gate toward the Heavenly Dao by making the Five Elements divine Flag recognized him as its owner. Even though he has taken quite a lot of few advantages from this woman, he still felt she benefited more from him.
Heavenly Dao, the divine path toward the sky. Even if he was to only able to sense a bit of it, he would already have great benefits. People who could truly make it into the gate were extreme prodigies. Not only that, they all had extremely sentimental characters. Hence, only very, very few people around Qing Shui's age would step into it. This was a kind of paramount state. Stepping across the huge gate toward the Heavenly Dao was one of the most crucial parts of cultivation. This very path had actually blocked countless everyone.
As for entering the huge Heaven Dao's gate, his cultivation in the future would speed up significantly. Eventually, he would be able to head for the huge gate of False God.
Previously, when Qing Shui looked at the Eighth Heavenly Layer, it gave him a feeling of a person looking at an extremely straight mountain from the bottom, looking at the mountain peak that pierced its way straight through the sky. Unfortunately, he could only dig some staircases little by little with his chisel and slowly make his way up. This kind of project could be said to be totally hopeless. The reason being that the time needed to achieve it was immeasurable.
Once he stepped into the huge gate of Heavenly Dao, it was as if a staircase had appeared along his way toward the Eighth Heavenly Layer. Even though the end could not be seen, he could see that he was progressing toward it step by step. Compared to before, the difference was as like the gap between the Heaven and the Earth.
There was finally hope for Eighth Heavenly Layer! Qing Shui did not lack persistence. Compared to before, it was a lot easier now. Now, he only needed to clench his teeth and climb up.
