Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1329-1330
AST 1329 - The Clearing of Eighth Heavenly Meridian, Significant Increase in Strength Yet Again
It went without saying that Qing Shui's position among his clan was transcendent. However, he was still very easy going with the others. This was also what Qing Shui wished for. He was fond of the most ordinary familial affection that didn't have any complicated feelings mixed in it.
’’Mother, I wasn't talking nonsense. As long as they are willing to wait, I can guarantee them the best marriage in the future. For the sake of Qing Clan's future, I will definitely find a wife that they will be satisfied with,’’ Qing Shui said with a smile. The current Qing Clan was decent enough for many people to wish to connect to the Qing Clan through marriage. But of course, this type of marriage wouldn't simply be just a marriage for connection.
However, he couldn't rule out that with gains there would be losses as well, depending on what one was pursuing. Most of these unions were done without any feelings. But bonds could be nurtured over time, provided that there was no hatred between two parties. Otherwise, it would be very difficult for any bonds to be nurtured.
Qing Shui initially hated these marriages for connection, even now. As for Long'er's arranged marriage, he'd still leave it to the two children's decision in the future.
’’Alright, alright. I still hope they all can find a person they love. Marriage isn't business. It's something that will last a lifetime,’’ Qing Yi smiled and said in a relaxed tone.
Qing Shui's heart stirred when he heard that and remembered that his mother had been waiting for that person all this time. He decided that he must find him. He just had to wait until his strength was raised and when he was influential enough. By then he would be able to track him down.
Qing Shui had a hunch that that person was probably not some unknown figure. Otherwise, there wouldn't be anyone coming to the five continents to steal him away.
’’I know, Mother. Rest assured. That's why I still want them to raise their strength. By then, they would be able to reach newer heights and broader world. But of course, if they meet the right one then they may let it slip away.’’ Qing Shui felt that the words he had just said earlier sounded a little as if he was splitting hairs.
After dinner, the entire clan was chatting in the lounge. The atmosphere was great and very lively. Qing Shui's few children were there along with Qing Zi's child. Changfeng was the oldest among them. He was still like a small calf back then but he had grown half a size bigger compared to before. Among the fourth generation of Qing Clan, he was the oldest boy apart from Luan Luan and Yuchang.
Despite his young age, his foundation was way more superior than Qing Zi back then. After Feng Yanfei married Qing Zi, she appeared to be more youthful. She wasn't showing any signs of aging but she was instead turning more mature.
Qing Changfeng had a similar figure to Qing Zi. He was strong like a tiger cub but his face bore somewhat of a resemblance to Feng Yanfei instead. Qing Shui didn't mean to say Qing Zi looked ugly, he just looked a little silly.
Qing Shui had also put in enough effort, that wasn't any inferior to the efforts he put in his own children, in Qing Zi's few children.
Among Qing Hui, Qing Hu, Qing Shan, Qing You, Qing Shi, only Qing Shan and Xiang Yuan got married. Qing You had broken up with his young girlfriend. The girl had left his side forever due to an unexpected incident. This caused Qing You to be depressed for a very long period of time.
There weren't many people among the fourth generation of the Qing Clan. There were only two girls - Qing Bei and Qing Qing. Qing Qing was already married. To other clans, Qing Clan could only be considered a very, very small clan with this number of people.
Qing Luo had been hoping for the next generation of the Qing Clan to flourish. The fourth generation of Qing Clan wasn't that few for now. Qing Shui already had a few children and was expecting even more in the future. Qing Zi had three sons and a daughter, Qing Shan also had two children by now, a boy and a girl.
They were also named by Qing Shui. The boy was named Qing Ling while the girl was named Qing Qi. They were two years apart. The boy was older and around three years old now while the girl was around one year old.
There were also still some other followers of the Qing Clan who were pretty much like the stewards of the Qing Clan. They managed most businesses for Qing Clan since there weren't many people in Qing Clan.
Cang Wuya had already returned to the Heavenly Palace. Fei Wuji had become a father. When Canghai Mingyue and Luan Luan sent Old Master back, they had also gifted many presents for Fei Wuji.
Qing Luo and Lin Zhanhan retired to bed not long after that. The two old men were very happy. Lin Zhanhan had found his descendant and naturally, his wish had been fulfilled. The incident at Lion King's Ridge had also ended. The heavy boulder in his heart had vanished and he felt relieved.
Qing Yi and the rest also left. Long'er was already asleep. Zhu Qing and the few ladies also carried their children and left. Soon enough, only the few males from the third generation of Qing Clan were left here drinking wine.
’’Brother Qing Shui, is the Dancing Phoenix Continent very beautiful?’’
’’Are there a lot of beauties?’’ Qing You laughed mischievously.
’’Yes!’’ Qing Shui replied with a laugh.
’’Alright then, I shall wait another few years. By then, you have to find me a lady from some aristocratic clan as my woman. Oh yes and she may have the temper expected of a lady of the aristocratic clan but she mustn't be unreasonable,’’ Qing You said in anticipation.
There still wasn't any news of Yiye Jiange yet and it had been a month. Before Qing Shui realized it, he had arrived before Wenren Wu-shuang's door. It opened with just a push and Qing Shui immediately went in.
This time, it was different compared to last time. After all, he had just been here last month.
Wenren Wu-shuang was neatly dressed and standing by the window, admiring the nightscape outside. The view here was amazing. She smiled when she saw Qing Shui. ’’It's been so long since your last return. You should go spend some time with the others first!’’
Her white dress was whiter than the snow and her silky hair draped over her shoulders. Her face was peerlessly alluring. Not alluring in a seductive way but in a graceful way instead. She was kind of sacred, noble, intellectual and had the temperament slightly akin to the big-sister-next-door.
’’The last time I returned, you weren't here. This time, I wish to devour you. Be my woman, Wu-shuang.’’ Qing Shui smiled and walked over to hold her hands.
Wenren Wu-shuang's delicate body trembled, she shook her head gently. ’’It's too risky. You have so many women. There's no need to risk this. I am forever your woman anyway.’’
Qing Shui glanced at her and smiled. ’’Wu-shuang, do you not wish to become a woman?’’ he asked softly.
Were there any woman that didn't yearn for love? Appetite and lust were human nature, they were omnipresent in healthy people. Wenren Wu-shuang's face flushed at Qing Shui's question. She had already considered herself his woman since long ago. It was a pity that her body woke her up at the most critical moment that time. But if something had happened that time, she definitely wouldn't be able to forgive herself ever.
’’I wish to but I can't.’’ Wenren Wu-shuang's countenance dimmed at the thought of this.
She couldn't be together with her beloved in the most intimate way. When the love between a man and woman reached the peak, se* would naturally happen. Love had to be communicated through words, love had to be communicated through actions. This was a physical need and also an emotional need. This was inheritance. Copulation between a man and woman was sacred.
’’Wu-shuang, the thing you worried about isn't going to happen. I have the Nine Yang Constitution and it has already attained the Grand Perfection Stage on top of that. You are a gift that has been bestowed upon me by the Heavens because only I am able to do things that would make even the immortals jealous with you,’’ Qing Shui assured her with a smile.
She looked at Qing Shui earnestly. Her countenance suddenly turned alluringly gorgeous as she immediately gave Qing Shui a tight embrace. ’’Really?’’
’’I still don't want to leave you all yet. Do you think I would be able to leave you all here just like that?’’ Qing Shui laughed and planted a kiss on her straight and sharp jade-like nose.
Wenren Wu-shuang and Qing Shui's clothes were discarded in a flash, her fair and lovely figure was exposed before Qing Shui. Qing Shui kissed her on her lips and gently sucked on them while fondling her soft breasts with both of his hands.
That alluring roundness was exuding fatal temptation that made one's blood race. The faint fragrance of her body invaded Qing Shui's sense of smell. He couldn't restrain himself from enveloping that delicate peak in his mouth, while teasing the other with his other hand.
Qing Shui squeezed his rod into a very hot and wet place. It was scalding or more like freezingly scalding. There was a piercing icy sensation within that hotness but it wasn't too intense. If it wasn't for his Nine Yang Constitution, he reckoned that he could have been done for instantly. But now, it almost set Qing Shui off instead. Could this be the high level Ultimate Level of Icefire...?
The moment he penetrated into her, the unnamed cultivation technique activated itself. At the same time, Qing Shui also had Wenren Wu-shuang activate that unnamed cultivation technique. He had taught her that a very long time ago.
As expected, one of the Twelve Heavenly Meridians was cleared this time!
The Eighth Heavenly Meridian had been cleared...
Eight out of the Twelve Heavenly Meridians had been cleared. A wave of exquisite energy erupted within his body. It was extremely pure and quickly blended within his body. Not long after that, another wave of pure energy rose and then entered Wenren Wu-shuang's body through the place where they were connected. During the daytime, he had already helped her to nurture her constitution. This time, she was undergoing an earth shattering transformation.
Soon enough, a wave of even more powerful energy poured forth from Wenren Wu-shuang into his body.
For about two hours, their bodies would be strengthened every time it passed through. It would leave behind a trail of pure energy when it left their bodies. This carried on until that wave of enormous energy split into two in the end and melted into both of their bodies.
Before Wenren Wu-shuang could even exclaim in surprise, Qing Shui had already started moving. The room was instantly filled with alluring and delicate moans.
They didn't stop until it was past midnight. Wenren Wu-shuang lay on Qing Shui's chest languidly in bliss while watching him.
’’My husband...’’ Wenren Wu-shuang's reddened face was still quite elegant when she called out shyly and coquettishly.
’’Did it feel good? Are you satisfied?’’ Qing Shui's hands were gently caressing her rear. They were still intimately joined together down there.
’’It felt great. Shuang'er only knows now that there's something this pleasurable. No wonder you are always doing this with sisters.’’ Wenren Wu-shuang leaned over to shyly whisper into Qing Shui's ear.
Her breasts were in full display before Qing Shui's face. He naturally didn't hold back as he savored one of the swaying roundnesses. The moment he gave it a strong suck, Wenren Wu-shuang instantly turned weak.
Wenren Wu-shuang was fast asleep but Qing Shui couldn't sleep. The Eighth Heavenly Meridian had been cleared. The Fourth Heavenly Meridian from back then had reached its turning point which was akin to the small success stage and his strength had been raised very significantly.
When the Eighth Heavenly Meridian was cleared this time, his strength had also been significantly improved, much more compared to the time the Fourth Heavenly Meridian was cleared. In addition to Duo Cultivation and perhaps Wenren Wu-shuang's constitution and Yin Physique, his physical strength was instantly increased by two sun.
His physical strength had already reached more than four sun. Over this period of time, the rate his physical strength increased through his own cultivation was very slow. He wasn't sure if this was a reaction of possessing the Duo Cultivation technique and Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. In any case, he felt a little bothered by it. His cultivation had been improving agonizingly slow but as long as his physical strength increased by a little, his strength would increase considerably. But then again, he had the Seven-colored Pellet, Spiritual Weapon which was the Big Dipper Sword, Golden Pellet, Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation, divine Nebula Formation and Arhat Rosary Beads. When he thought about it up to this point, it was fair enough because he was already viewed as a monster by others nowadays.
The Eighth Heavenly Meridian... Qing Shui had a suspicion now that this capability wasn't only limited to only the ladies on the Portraits of Beauty. He had six women that were on the Portraits of Beauty, Wenren Wu-shuang, Canghai Mingyue, Mo Zun, Di Qing, Hai Dongqing and Yu Ruyan and this puzzled Qing Shui very much.
Yu Sunu and Mu Qing had also cleared one Heavenly Meridian each but he couldn't determine if they were one of the ladies from the Portraits of Beauty.
AST 1330 - The Complete Awakening of the Hundred Blossom Body. A second Golden Star, Nine Nine divine Nebula Formation
If he was to make assumptions based on the Heavenly Meridians which had been established contact with, he might have already found all twelve of the women in the Portraits of Beauty. Despite this, he kept on having a feeling that things weren't that simple. But he stopped thinking about it after thinking for just a while. He decided to go with the flow. Even he himself might not be able to see all twelve of the Portraits of Beauty. Could the final two be Yu Sunu and Mu Qing?
This time, Wenren Wu-shuang had benefited even more. She managed to catch up and became the first person to achieve State Master grade. If she was in the Western Oxhe Continent, even Qing Sha would be considered a State Master. But this was the five continents they were talking about, merely a State Master was enough to sweep across the entire five continents.
Could it be that it was because she was one of the women from the Portraits of Beauty? Or could it have to do with her own strength? Not only did Wenren Wu-shuang manage to achieve State Master grade, her body was even filled with mysterious strength. This energy was colored a bit blue and a bit red. This should have something to do with her unique body type. This time, she was considered to have awakened her body physique. In the future, her strength would improve very quickly and at a frightening rate.
This time, Qing Shui didn't intentionally try to control his sperm. Now, he wasn't worried about getting them pregnant. He believed that in the future, by relying on the Nine Continents Boots and Five Elements divine Flag, shuttling back and forth between the nine continents shouldn't be a hard task.
In the past, even though he hadn't discussed with Wenren Wu-shuang, he could tell that she really liked children during the day. Wenren Wugou was no longer here, himself and the people from Qing Clan were the people closest to her. It might be a good idea to have children too.
’’Daddy, buns, I want to eat some jade steamed buns.’’ Qing Yun ran here when she saw Qing Shui.
Qing Shui immediately picked her up, ’’Little brat, be patient, your mother and the others are making them now. It will be done in a while.’’
He has given Qing Clan a lot. Even the pond in Qing Clan had been filled up with the fish, turtles, crabs, prawns and so on from the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal. In any case, reproduction no longer posed an issue within the realm as of now. If it wasn't because the pond evolved into a small lake, it was likely that it wouldn't have been big enough to contain everything.
He even put a few Longevity Fish into the pond so that they could use it to make Longevity Noodles whenever the seniors in the clan had their birthday. As for the rest of the fish, they would eat them on regular days. Those which he put in the past were all gone now. He had forgotten about this last time. Hence, he needed to come back every month now. Things were more convenient this way. Every time he filled up the pond, it would have been enough for them to eat for up to half a year. After all, the amount which he put in was quite desirable.
During the day, he continued to help the people go through Impurities Cleansing, Constitution Nurturing and building their foundation through acupuncture. Whenever he felt tired, he would go into the realm to rest and conveniently refine some medicines. Just like this, a few days time passed.
In Qing Clan, regardless of whether they were adults or children, they were all being Constitution Nurtured with Life and Death Needles. They also went through Impurities Cleansing once. Furthermore, they also had the Ren Meridian Strengthening Pellet, Du Meridian Strengthening Pellet, Golden Snake Pellet, the Bone Strengthening Pill and so on, which were all the upgraded versions with Spring of Life and the crystals added in them. They still had particularly good effect.
For the past few nights, other than the first day, Qing Shui had been rushing about from one room to another for the remaining nights. Basically, he didn't get to rest throughout the whole night. He wanted to sleep with all the girls at the same time. But he knew that now wasn't the time to do it. He didn't want to make things difficult for the girls. He knew that they were all proud women. He already felt satisfied being able to do this.
Today at night, after hesitating for a while, Qing Shui opened Yu He's room door.
Yu He who was in her pajamas, had a kind of attractiveness which couldn't be described with words. It was just that she seemed a bit weak now. She smiled upon seeing Qing Shui, ’’Is there anything you need, looking for me so late?’’
’’Yes, there is something I need to discuss with you!’’ Qing Shui entered her room and locked the door.
At that moment, Qing Shui felt that Yu He's heart had started beating faster. However, he chose to not say anything about it. Instead, he stared at her.
Qing Shui rubbed his nose and smiled, ’’Let's talk!’’
’’The reason why you locked the door is just to talk to me?’’ Yu He said in a bit of a joking as well as happy manner.
’’Why don't we go and talk about it on the bed?’’ Qing Shui said while holding her hand.
’’Qing Shui, just what position do I have in your heart?’’ Yu He asked in a depressed tone.
Qing Shui was stunned. He held her hand and sat down together with her on the sofa beside him, ’’Actually, I already started liking you back in the days when we were in Hundred Miles City. It's just that back then, you used to treat me like a child. Actually, I have never forgotten about you. I will feel sad if you throw yourself into someone else's arms. But I won't make any noise, despite how much I'd suffer. That time, when I saw you and when I found out the things which you had been doing throughout these years, at that time, I suddenly realized that I need to hold you within my arms.’’
’’I have always loved you. But I somehow felt that I was never able to catch up to you. Even now, I still feel the same. Qing Shui, tell me, what shall I do?’’
’’What do you want to catch up to me in? Your martial arts skills?’’ Qing Shui looked at her.
’’More or less!’’
’’You have to feel that you are a match against me. Only then will you feel something when you are with me. The reason why we are together is to ensure that we are able to fight against each other.’’ Qing Shui said with a smile.
’’I want to help you!’’ Yu He was a bit speechless. She rolled her eyes at Qing Shui.
’’Love is something which is mutual. Do you think that we can only become husband and wife just because you are of help to me?’’ Qing Shui looked at the stubborn woman.
’’I know, actually, I have also thought things through when I decided to remain here.’’ Yu He knew that Qing Shui was already done with the majority of his things. For the things he was doing now, they were things which couldn't be rushed.
’’Sister Yu, do you still remember the days back when we were in Hundred Miles City?’’
’’Yes I do, you are a little pervert. All you think about is trying to take advantage of me.’’ When Yu He thought about the days back in Hundred Miles City, she seemed to really miss it.
Qing Shui right away embraced her and let her settle down within his arms. Yu He cried out in surprise. After that, she looked at Qing Shui with an embarrassed expression.
Despite her clothes being in the way, he still sucked on the bulging spot on her body. Yu He covered up her mouth quickly with her hand. Her body trembled. As for her other hand, she was using it to hug Qing Shui's neck.
’’Yu He, you are my woman, give yourself to me!’’ Qing Shui lifted his head and looked at the beautiful woman.
She let out a soft gentle noise from her nose.
Yu He was like a young married woman. In comparison, her body was a bit more well-rounded. Yet she was a woman who had yet to experience human intimacy. She married once before, unfortunately, that short-lived man didn't have the fortune to consummate their marriage.
Every women possesses charms of their own kind. They have temperaments which are unique to themselves. They each possess their own kind of charisma. Yu He was very daring as she stared at the man who was taking off her clothes.
More than twenty years, she has known him for more than twenty years.
’’Sister Yu, have you ever desired men?’’ Qing Shui's hands were travelling over land and water. He asked while kissing her ears.
’’Other than you, I have never desired any others. Men aren't good stuff. But as for you, even if you had been worse, I would still desire you. I have said before, other than you, I am not going to commit myself to any other men in my entire life,’’ Yu He said gently while hugging Qing Shui's neck. She sounded really firm when she was saying it.
’’Sorry for making you suffer all these years.’’ Any men would feel proud if they heard something like this. Let alone with it being said by an extreme beauty like her.
These words somehow weighed quite significantly. For instance, that killing weapon of Qing Shui's which was like steel was no longer able to control itself as it squeezed its way through the wet and smooth flowery path.
The nameless martial technique once again operated.
His Sea of Consciousness felt as if it had burst open. The connection between the Heavenly Meridians was yet to be established. However, what Qing Shui was shocked about was that there was an additional golden star within his Sea of Consciousness. The nebula within the Sea of Consciousness had right away expanded onefold.
For a moment, he felt that his senses had become extremely clear. His entire Spiritual Sense could feel things more clearly now. This meant that each Fire of Life had become even more distinct. In the past, it used to be like black and white. Yet now, it was multi-colored. This was the change which took place when one's Spiritual Sense got stronger.
His Spirit Energy had increased onefold. The strength of the divine Nebula Formation was about to undergo changes too. Now, he should already have been able to cultivate the Nine Nine divine Nebula Formation.
But now was still not the time to think about these. The reason being that at this moment, Yu He was undergoing even more dramatic changes than him. Her body was giving off dazzling light. Furthermore, a lot of flowers appeared in the room. Each and every one of the flowers were different. These were Flowers of Spirit Energy. They were all flying in the sky. After that, they combined into a flower dragon and it drilled its way into Yu He's body. Soon after, a pure energy travelled back and forth between Qing Shui and Yu He.
The Hundred Flowers Body had completely awakened!
By the time all of these changes disappeared, Yu He turned around and pressed on Qing Shui with her body. She was blushing as she supported both of her hands on Qing Shui's chest. She gently moved her slender waist. At that moment, it felt as if the entire world was shaking.
The room quieted down. At the same time, the day was also getting brighter. The sky would have turned completely bright after a while longer. Yu He on the other hand, she was in good spirits. Naturally, so was Qing Shui. The two who were cuddling each other tightly said some intimate things with each other. From time to time, gentle laughing and embarrassing voices would come through.
’’Qing Shui, I am going into seclusion tomorrow. My body physique has awakened completely. I am finally able to cultivate the Hundred Flowers Valley divine Technique,’’ Yu He said without the slightest intention to hide anything.
’’Oh, this is a good thing,’’ Qing Shui said with a smile.
’’I never expected that one could also awaken their body physique through this method. It is really something unimaginable to me,’’ Yu He said both a bit shocked and a bit embarrassed.
’’Then we should do more in the future.’’
’’Somebody was the one who pushed me down just now.’’
’’Stop saying it, if you say it again, don't ever think about doing that to me ever again,’’ Yu He yelled at Qing Shui, annoyed.
’’Sister Yu, you are about to go into seclusion, why don't you let me try inserting it for once,’’ Qing Shui whispered gently into her ear.
’’Ah!’’ Yu He felt both shocked and embarrassed.
’’Please? Just help realize this little wish from your husband.’’ Qing Shui nipped her earlobes.
Yu He slowly crawled up. She raised her well-rounded and smooth buttocks. That beautiful section of her body was clearly displayed right in front of Qing Shui.
Early in the morning on the next day, Yu He had gone into seclusion.
Qing Shui on the other hand, was cultivating his Nine Nine divine Nebula Formation. The Nine Nine divine Nebula Formation which he was unable to achieve despite how hard he worked was now surprisingly progressing very smoothly. Prior to this, he had always lacked the final star. Now, he was already arranging the new golden star which just appeared.
The nebula within his consciousness had once again expanded. This was his ocean of Spirit Energy. It's storage capacity had increased. With that happening, naturally, his Spirit Energy attacks would strengthen. Not only this, the Nine Nine divine Nebula Formation had also been formed.
With the Nine Nine divine Nebula Formation formed, both the Seven Seven and Eight Eight divine Nebula Formation also disappeared at the same time.
The Nine-nine divine Nebula Formation increases the offensive strength of Spirit Energy threefold;this makes it four times as strong. It also increases physical strength onefold. The toughness of the Spirit Energy is increased fourfold. The formation revolves on its own with zero consumption. Attacks however, consume energy like normal.
Qing Shui was indulging in his thoughts and feelings for a long time. He never expected his strength to increase so much on his trip back here this time. He had already established contact with eight out of the twelve Heavenly Meridians.
Now, Qing Shui could achieve an attack worth as much as fifty thousand sun with his Spirit Energy when he used the Seal of Roc. If he managed to meet the odds of receiving a double in prowess, his attack would be able to reach a terrifying amount worth as much as a hundred thousand sun.
The attack of the Nine Continents Mountain had achieved nearly forty thousand sun. His physical attack was worth nearly twenty thousand sun. When the odds of gaining a double in prowess was met, it would have equal strength to the Nine Continents Mountain. Unfortunately, the Nine Continents Mountain didn't have any odds of gaining a doubling in prowess. Despite this, it was as stable as physical attacks which gained a double in prowess. The Nine Continents Mountain could be upgraded but unfortunately, it has been a long time since it last managed to evolve.
