Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1357-1358
AST 1357 –Curing the Poison, Snake Elephant Movement, Consuming the Origin Returning Pill again, Strength
Mei Tengfei's expression changed when he heard what Qing Shui said, "You are actually able to tell that it's the Blood Essence Demon's Goblet?"
Qing Shui smiled and looked at him, "It seems you have already figured out who poisoned you with it."
In Qing Shui's past incarnation, he had only learned about such things as Goblets from stories. Apparently, people from Miao ethnic group were proficient in using Goblets. But as to how frightening they were, even he didn't have a clear idea of it. Upon arriving in this world, he had also come in contact with a few Goblets. The Marrow Nibbling Golden Dragon Silkworm from the Blood Essence Pool was also considered to be a Goblet. As a matter of fact, it was the king among Goblets.
Goblets, across the nine continents were like a kind of very poisonous worm. One could plant these poisonous worms inside their target's body through their food and drink, close interaction as well as through some sort of hidden methods. Some of them could cause the death of their targets within a short period of time, whereas there were some which carried a long-term effects. Without the targets themselves noticing, they would be consumed by the worms.
The Blood Essence Demon's Goblet was precisely the type which was slow to take effect. It would slowly lead its target to death by letting the worms consume their Blood Essence. The Blood Essence Demon's Goblet was very small but it completely dominated Blood Essence.
Mei Tengfei had even consumed poison before, wanting to use poison to poison those little worms to death. Sadly, he was almost poisoned to death himself but nothing happened to the Goblet at all.
"Uncle, are you able to cure it then? Do you know who the person is that poisoned father with the goblet?"
"It should be treatable. As for who poisoned him, I believe you can go ask your dad, I believe he will know who the person is. The reason being that this kind of Goblet can only enter one's body through food or drink," Qing Shui replied.
In an instant, Mei Tengfei looked a lot older than before. It seemed like he aged years and wasn't that happy even after hearing Qing Shui say that he could be treated.
"Daddy, who could be so merciless to actually go against you?" Mei Dai asked with her eyes red.
"Alright little brat, let's talk about this later. I need to think about it. For now, I am still unable to tell who it was." Mei Tengfei revealed a bitter smile.
"Uncle, please help my daddy." Mei Dai looked at Qing Shui with a miserable look.
"This daughter of yours still has quite a few good features. She is obedient to you, this is the best moral value one can have. This will also help make you look even prettier. Prior to this, when you crossed fists with me, I felt that your Spirited Snake Whip techniques were quite good. In the future, I might try to emulate them. I will take that as the treatment fee for this time," Qing Shui smiled and said after a few thoughts.
"We have only crossed fists once and you are already able to learn my techniques?" Mei Dai said in shock.
"I am just learning the pattern. Mister, here, please allow me to help you kill off the poison." Qing Shui smiled as he took out his Golden Needles.
Heavenly Vision Technique!
After that, Qing Shui performed the treatment swiftly with his Golden Needles. In an instant, he blocked off a location on his body. The moment when he was about to force out the Blood Essence Demon's Goblet, he thought about his Marrow Nibbling Golden Silkworm and came up with something.
After that, he grabbed onto the location with the Blood Essence Demon's Goblet with one of his hands and let the Marrow Nibbling Golden Silkworm to dig its way into it immediately. Following this, it quickly swallowed the Blood Essence Demon's Goblet within Mei Tengfei's body before sending off a thought to Qing Shui and going to rest.
That thought had caused Qing Shui to be really shocked. Mei Tengfei was a False God Warrior. More than half of the Blood Essence across his body had been sucked up by the Blood Essence Demon's Goblet. Qing Shui felt that this time, the Marrow Nibbling Golden Silkworm should have gained a huge benefit from it. This was the Blood Essence of a False God Warrior.
Blood Essence could be recovered. It was just that it would take a bit of time. Just like Mei Tengfei. Over time, everything would come back to him. But if the Blood Essence Demon's Goblet continued to stay within his body, one day, his Blood Essence would be sucked dry and he would die.
Qing Shui retrieved his hands. It wasn't actually that long, it had only been fifteen minutes. He smiled and looked at Mei Tengfei, "Old man, you should already be able to feel that your Goblet has been removed. If there isn't anything more other than this, we will take our leave."
"Uncle, has my father really recovered?" Mei Dai seemed to find it a bit hard to believe and asked.
"Your daddy has been tortured for many years. Ever since he got sick, it was like a mountain collapsing. While he is recovering, it will be just like spinning silk. He will need time to rest. Just give him some supplements. Within at most half a year, he will recover completely," Qing Shui said with a smile.
"Oh, thank you uncle! Let me tell the kitchen to make some food. No matter what, both you and auntie must stay today," Mei Dai said and grabbed onto Qing Shui's and Yuan Su's sleeves.
Qing Shui didn't really feel anything. But Yuan Su on the other hand, she blushed and secretly looked at Qing Shui.
"Miraculous Physician Qing, why don't you stay? I can tell that you are interested in the Whip Battle Technique. This is for you, I am sure you will like it." The old man took out a notebook and passed it to Qing Shui.
Snake Elephant Movement!
Qing Shui had only opened the book and looked through it for a while before he got really immersed into it. These were the attacks of the Snake Elephant. Its lower body was like a mountain whereas its upper body was agile like a snake. It had a long snake's head as well as a body belonging to that of a snake which was agile like a divine Whip of Heaven and Earth. Prior to this, the whip which Mei Dai used, as well as her technique all came from here. However, her practice lacked the taste of a snake elephant.
"I really like it. Well then, I won't hold back," Qing Shui smiled and said.
"You deserved it. Miraculous Physician Qing. Please don't tell anyone that I have recovered," Mei Tengfei said softly.
"No problem. Rest assured, I am not someone with such a big mouth. This is my moral as a doctor. I won't leak out any information regarding my patients."
Qing Shui left. Mei Dai looked at her father, "Daddy, was it eldest brother?"
Mei Tengfei trembled. After that, he smiled and looked at Mei Dai, "Foolish brat. You are thinking too much! Don't think so much."
Mei Dai let out a sigh, "Alright, daddy, please take a rest. Half a year will go by really fast.
Mei Dai left. An old and wise man appeared beside Mei Tengfei. The old man had a hunched back. He looked really dry and thin, yet he resembled something like a phantom.
"Master!" The dried up old man showed his politeness to Mei Tengfei.
"Go send off the eldest prince!" Mei Tengfei closed his eyes and said.
The incidents which happened in Mei Clan were no longer Qing Shui's concern. He was now making his way to Tianhe Clan along with Yuan Su.
"Qing Shui, do you know who administered the Goblet?" Yuan Su asked out of curiosity.
"I don't know," Qing Shui smiled and said bluntly.
"You are lying. You must have known who it is. Even if you don't, you should be able to make a guess who did it," Yuan Su whispered.
"Alright, Mei Clan is a huge clan. It's best if we don't take part in some of the things which have nothing to do with us. Or else, we will get ourselves into trouble." Qing Shui refused to tell Yuan Su about it. Let alone the fact that he didn't have a clear picture of it. The only thing he knew was that Mei Tengfei would definitely know who it was.
In the blink of an eye, a week has passed. Tomorrow was the day when he would need to return to Yehuang Country City. Tianhe Renmo had recovered a third of his injury. It was as if his entire person has changed completely. His Dantian was also considered to have recovered completely.
Tianhe Renmo was much older than QingShui. With his rejuvenated mentality, he was an extremely attractive middle aged man. The relationship between the two of them was very good after a week of treatments. Qing shui was shocked that once tianhe Renmo recovered, there was a high chance that he would directly reach the level of False God. The period of time when he was a cripple had a very large impact on his life. He was no longer a young person and was at least 300 years of age. The duration where someone looked middle aged was very long, lasting a few hundred years.
Break everything first, fail to succeed.
This should be Tianhe Renmo's luck. Hence,the idiom of the old man may have lost his mare, but in the end, it all still turned out for the best. When someone found themselves facing this kind of disaster, once they recovered, they would be considered to have profited from a disaster. Or else, it was likely that he would still need at least a hundred years of time if he wanted to be a False God Warrior. Or rather, it might even be longer than that.
To Tianhe Renmo, he owed the debt of getting his life reborn to Qing Shui. Added on that he was an upright person, he hated evil more than anything else. He was straightforward and distinguished between gratitude and grudges very clearly. The two had started addressing each other as brothers after a week. Qing Shui knew that when Tianhe Renmo addressed him as a brother, that brother which he meant was not in the slightest inferior to those blood-related to him.
At night, Qing Shui entered the realm and started feeding on the Origin Returning Pill. It had been one week. Three days ago, he has already used it once and increased his strength by five and a half sun. One day in the realm was enough to make up for a hundred days outside.
His body had already reached 31 sun. This way, Qing Shui's strength had already achieved a strength worth nearly 150,000 sun. The Nine Continents Mountain immediately went up to a strength worth nearly 450,000 sun.
His Spirit Energy was even more terrifying. When he used the Seal of Roc, it had already reached a strength worth 410,000 sun. If the chance to double in prowess was met, it would achieve a terrifying strength worth as much as 820,000 sun.
A double in prowess wasn't considered strength. Hence, Qing Shui could still use the Origin Returning Pill now. He took in yet another one today. Perhaps, in the future, he might only have one more chance left to take it. By the time his Seal of Roc achieved a strength worth 500,000 sun, perhaps, by then, his increase in strength might come to a stop.
He swallowed the Origin Returning Pill. He planned to swallow another one after a while.
As he did so, Qing Shui's raw strength achieved a strength worth 37.5 sun. The Double-Dose Prescription had enabled Qing Shui to take two of them.
He was finally saturated. Now, the strength of Qing Shui's Nine Continents Mountain was already worth more than 500,000 sun.
It was possible for Peak Martial Emperors to unleash a strength which which was worth a million sun whereas the strength of things like Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines were even more powerful.
While sensing the strength across his body, Qing Shui didn't know how long he would still need to break through to False God. The thing needed for the breakthrough to False God was Spring of Life. Similarly, he felt that the thing needed for Eighth Heavenly Layer was also the Spring of Life. Every time the realm upgraded, it would get itself ready for his increase in the level of his strength. This time was no exception.
Hence, Qing Shui had a feeling that he shouldn't be too far away from Eighth Heavenly Layer. To what extent would his strength go up once he reached Eighth Heavenly Layer? By then, would there still be people from Dancing Phoenix Continent trying to stop him?
Once he reached the eighth heavenly layer, it was unknown if any changes would occur in his Dantian. Would he be able to see the Gate of Heavenly Dao again? Qing Shui was looking forward to it. At that time, he could go anywhere and do anything.
False God warriors, were gods of the continent..
He should also be able to cultivate his Phoenix Form soon. His Roc Form has already reached a saturated state. Heart of Roc, Roc Spreading Wings…… As Qing Shui thought about it, he realized that he had been cultivating the Roc Form for a long, long time.
Eighth Heavenly Layer should enable him to cultivate his Phoenix Form. The Dragon Form was a legendary existence. It was the supreme-tier, the Immortal Demons among Immortal Demons! There were many kinds to Dragon Phoenix. Hence, the good and bad ones of their kind were all mixed together. But so long as it was a kind which belonged to the true dragon species, it shouldn't be weaker than the lowest grade False God warriors. Dragon Phoenix as well as beasts like the Immortal Demons weren't something which could be commonly seen. But across the nine continents, there were a lot of Immortal Demons. For example, the Ancient Battlefield.
Deep down in the sea, there were also countless existences.
Haohan Continent, Soaring Dragon Continent as well as Dancing Phoenix Continent all had them. Particularly Haohan Continent, it was incomparably vast, totally fitting to its name, Haohan (Note: Haohan stands for boundless in mandarin), boundless. No one knew how far it spread out to, nor was there anyone that existed who recorded it. It's said that there was an ancient site there.

AST 1358 –Birth of Soulsearch's Child. Two ladies pregnant, The Qing Clan is unable to have an inheritance?
On the next day, Qing Shui bid farewell to Tianhe Clan. The old man from Tianhe Clan also informed him that later on, they would travel to Yehuang Country.
Tianhe Renmo didn't go along with Qing Shui right away. He didn't want to bother Qing Shui and Yuan Su. It was just that he still didn't know about the relationship between Qing Shui and Yuan Su. Other than that, it was also because Qing Shui didn't want to let them know about his Nine Continents Steps Effect too soon.
Other than when he was in Tianhe City, Qing Shui used the Nine Continents Steps Effect to make haste for the rest of his journey. In just a moment's time, they had already arrived in Yehuang Country City. Yuan Su, who experienced the Nine Continents Step Effect for the second time, found herself totally shocked. She was starting to find this man more and more mysterious. They hadn't met for many years and during those years, a lot of things about him had changed. He had become more mature. Certainly, a lot of things seemed to have stayed the same too. He was still the man she was once familiar with.
Soulsearch also felt extremely happy seeing both of them back. Li Ji was going to give birth at anytime. It should be on the following week. Soulsearch was really agitated. He was really looking forward to that child of his.
Initially, he was already considered to be an old man. But Qing Shui wanted to help Soulsearch gain back his look back when he was in his middle age. This was also the symbol of Qing Shui's medical expertise. It was because of this incident that Qing Shui's reputation rose up.
Now, Qing Shui added more demonic beasts. He mixed in the Tiger Bone Soup from the past, the All Aspect Nourishment Soup and so on together into it. Of course, the current one was a lot more powerful compared to the one before.
Other than that, recently, Qing Shui would also constantly revolve his Ancient Strengthening Technique to refine his body. He operated the strength of the Shield Attack within his body all the way to its maximum. The energy of his Ancient Strengthening Technique had long since been revolving independently. It was just that now, Qing Shui was trying to make it revolve even faster. It was a few times faster than normal speed.
Unknowingly, he had already started to feel the enormous barrier. This place was a dead end. The only way was to gain access to the barrier in front.
He was finally here. This barrier was just like the dragon's gate and he on the other hand, was the tiny carp fish. Once he hopped over it, he would turn into a divine Dragon. A lot of people had managed to reach up to this point but in actuality, how many of them would actually manage to hop over the gate?
All the small barriers for Qing Shui could basically be broken through very easily. He had never been obstructed by small barriers before. He could simply just revolve the strength of his Shield Attack and divine Force to easily break through.
On the second day, before the sky turned dark, Tianhe Renmo was already here. He was in a restaurant near Imperial Hall. Originally, he had planned to buy a courtyard here, it was just that this was against some of their rules. Hence, doing this might cause Yehuang Country to eject him.
The people from Tianhe Clan would immediately be noticed by others when they came to Yehuang country. Some of the aristocratic clans from Yehuang Country would pay attention to Tianhe Clan's movements from time to time.
Once these aristocratic clans found out that Tianhe Clan was here for treatments in Imperial Hall, they would stop being so sensitive. In the history of the World of the Nine Continents, there were a lot of examples where countries were wiped out very quickly. Some of them would even be caught unprepared and as a result got attacked.
Hence, normally, the leading clan of a particular country was prohibited from sending along a huge troop of powerful warriors into other countries. Furthermore, when they arrived, it would be best for them to first greet the clans.
Unknowingly, time had yet again passed. Tianhe Renmo recovered in less than half a month. Basically, he was considered to have healed completely. He was at Grade One False God. This was the youngest False God Warrior Qing Shui had ever met.
Tianhe Renmo who became a False God Warrior didn't actually change anything between him and Qing Shui. The gratitude he held for him had never disappeared. Now, the two of them addressed each other as brothers. Similarly, Qing Shui also felt really happy. Tianhe Renmo's achievements in the future would definitely be limitless. Tianhe Clan would definitely fall into his hands. In the future, undoubtedly, he would also assist Qing Shui.
Qing Shui wouldn't put his hopes on other people. Hence, he would only let some people help him wave flags and shout battle cries occasionally, to help him make the atmosphere more intimidating, so that some of the thieves and rascals would act more obediently.
It shouldn't be too far away. Qing Shui was already able to feel it. Between six months to a year, he should be able to break through to False God. As a matter of fact, he might even be able to achieve it in three months.
The last time he went home, due to time constraints, he only managed to stay for two to three days. He had not visited Western Oxhe Continent during that time. Now that he was free and his strength had also increased a lot, he decided to pay Western Oxhe Continent a visit and also go back home once.
The people from Tianhe Clan left.
After five days, Soulsearch's baby was finally born. It was a strong little boy. Back then, Soulsearch had already mentioned about making him Qing Shui's godson. Qing Shui also happily agreed to it. Now, he even wanted Qing Shui to decide on his name.
Qing Shui had worried over this name for a long time. Eventually, he managed to come up with one. Sou Yi. He decided to include the word 'Yi' in his name in hope that in the future, he would be able to do everything easily. Other than this, there wasn't any deeper meaning to it.
The little baby was really strong and healthy. He was around four kilograms when he was born. He had huge eyes that looked like Li Ji's. His nose looked identical to Soulsearch's. Based on physical appearance, the little baby still looked really firm and handsome.
Qing Shui also didn't show any formality. He interacted with the little baby and infused his Xiantian Qi into him. This way, it could prevent the little baby from getting sick. In the future, he would be able to achieve Xiantian Realm without having to cultivate that hard. Of course, being Soulsearch's son, Xiantian realm was something which he wouldn't put in his eyes. Despite this, he still felt really happy. At least he would be able to achieve Xiantian Realm now.
The reason being that a lot of disciples from aristocratic clans would still have warriors who couldn't even beat Xiantian Warriors. Even if they had the Xiantian Golden Pellet, it was still useless. Let alone not everyone could use the Xiantian Golden Pellet. It was considered to be a rare medicine. A medicine which was very hard to be refined.
Every baby would cry loudly the moment when they were born. That first voice he made would breathe out the Xiantian Qi within his body. But Qing Shui could help seal this qi.
A few maids were hired in the small courtyard. They were all in charge of taking care of Li Ji and the kid.
After three days, Qing Shui bid his farewells to Soulsearch and Yuan Su. After that, he used the Five Elements divine Flag and immediately arrived in Central Continent.
During this time, Qing Shui would go back to his house once every month. But every time he went back, he would still feel really happy and excited. His mother and close relatives were all there. So were his women as well as children.
When he went back to Qing Clan, he had still yet to receive any news about Yiye Jiange. Both Wenren Wu-shuang and Di Qing were pregnant. They were already a month along. Seeing that he could come back now, Qing Shui stopped trying to rush to bring them to Western Oxhe Continent. In fact, they might be safer staying here.
Also because of this, Qing Shui decided to stop controlling it. They liked children, if they wanted babies, he would just let them be. Once their children got older, they would also be able to relax.
Just like Wenren Wu-shuang, things were better when her sister was still here. But now, she was the only one who remained. Having a child would also be considered having someone to place her hopes on. It could help make her live more happily. Just like Zhu Qing, compared to before, she had changed a lot. The same went for Canghai Mingyue, women mustn't be childless.
The moment when Qing Shui saw Di Qing and Wenren Wu-shuang, who still hadn't changed much, he realized that there was a kind of beauty on their faces which words couldn't describe. It was the pure and kind type of beauty. In just a while, the two women seemed to have grown up and looked a lot more mature. That was a change in their temperament. They looked really graceful and elegant.
Those who went into seclusion had all come out. But there was still no news about Yiye Jiange. It had been a long time. Unfortunately, Qing Shui noticed that despite having the energy to look for her, he didn't know where to start from. A palace, was it a palace on land or underwater? Which continent was it in?"
Throwing away these thoughts, Qing Shui gave them some medicinal pills. He was also really generous to let them take the Double-dose Prescription. Qing Qing's entire family of three were also present. The Four-eared Macaque was still very small. But it possessed formidable strength. Qing Shui didn't know if Qing Qing was aware that this thing was actually a formidable existence.
The other one was the Greencloud Up-step Pellet. Yuan Su was indeed the person with the most talent in this field. She replenished all of the medical prescriptions. Not only that, those which she replenished were all medicinal herbs which were relatively easy to find.
Seeing as everyone from Qing Clan was improving, Qing Shui felt really happy deep down. They were his close relatives, they all had the same blood flowing within them. On top of that, there were also his women.
Qing Zun and Qing Ming were growing really fast. Qing Yu was really independent, unlike Qing Yin, she liked swords. Furthermore, she was very talented with sword skills. The little brat really liked clinging onto Qing Shui just like how she used to when she was young.
Qing Yin, Qing Yan, Qing Yu, Qing Yun, four daughters. Qing Yin and Qing Yan looked identical whereas Qing Yu and Qing Yun shared some similarities with each other. Both Luan Luan and Yu Chang were all grown up but when around Qing Shui, they still behaved like they did when they were young. They hated parting with this father of theirs, a lot. Even if Luan Luan had a blood-related father of her own, it still wouldn't stop her from feeling that way.
No one had talked about incidents involving Yu Chan. She was Qing Shui's blood-related daughter. Qing Clan was her home.
The entire family was very lively and comfortable. This was a family. This kind of feeling was something which only people travelling far from home could feel when they blended themselves back into the family they were familiar with. It was a kind of happiness which words couldn't describe.
Among the medical prescriptions which Yuan Su gave him, there were some particularly suitable to be used for the majority of people in Qing Clan. Even for the children, it was also very useful. There was still quite a plentiful amount of lifespan for his grandfather and Lin Zhanhan. Added on that currently, their cultivation was improving quickly, considering the many years he has left, he was confident he could let them live even longer, turning Qing Clan into an aristocratic clan.
Qing Shui set aside some time and entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. He still needed to refine medicines, cultivate and help them store Yang Pills and Origin Returning Pills. On top of that, he also needed to refine the Greencloud Up-step Pellet.
The time was once again sufficient for him to consume the Origin Returning Pill. The Origin Returning Pill, which Yuan Su gave him, was indeed considered a tiny divine grade medicinal pill. He had already consumed two in the realm. Now, his raw strength had surprisingly achieved a terrifying strength worth 45 sun.
Upon using it this time, Qing Shui finally sensed it. This should be his last time taking it, or rather, he could still take the pill one last time.
He was also able to figure out why aristocratic clans could cause the strength of their clan to increase significantly so quickly. As long as they got the appropriate chance and inheritance, just like how he had his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, by making use of them along with the Origin Returning Pill, they would be able to make rapid progress.
Origin Returning Pill, Yang Pill, Double-dose Medicinal Pill. All of these needed to be stored in large amounts. In the future, he could raise the strength of his clan by relying on these. The next generation would find it relatively easier to increase their strength. They had good genes. Other than that, it was also because they had inheritance from himself. Unfortunately, they still didn't for now. He hoped that he could discover it in the two final forms of the Nine Animals Mimicry Technique.
Just like Tianhe Clan's inheritance, there was powerful Heavenly Crane Spiritual Qi within their bodies. But now, the Violet Gold Bloodline within Qing Shui's body was already a lot more powerful compared to before. He didn't know if his future children would also inherit his own Violet Gold Bloodline but he felt there was a high chance for it to be so. The reason being that now, he as well as his women possessed the Violet Gold Blood within their bodies.
It was likely that this was a chance. Violet Gold Bloodline as well as Golden Bloodline's inheritance were likely to be a sort of chance. For a group of people from the same generation, there could only be one or a minority of the people who could have Violet Gold or Golden Bloodline.
However there was only a few that had truly powerful Violet Gold or Golden bloodline. Qing Shui still needed to see the babies born to Wenren Wu-shuang and Di Qing, and if they possessed any of the bloodline.
Note: Soulsearch's pinyin in chinese is Sou Hun
