AST 1378 –The Distinction between False God Realms, Battle, Yelang Wuji
Qing Shui was very calm when he spoke. He was clueless about the influence circle in the continent’s capital or to what extent it could reach. Even so, Qing Shui wasn't that worried right now.
That was why he asked the question. By now, he still wasn't certain about the old man's intentions.
"I've said this before. If Physician Qing won't cooperate with us, the Yelang Clan, you will definitely find it difficult to establish yourself here because you have made Yelang Clan lose face." Yelang Qiankun was still happily smiling.
Qing Shui knew this answer. He was initially wondering why Yelang Clan didn't try to get even but had instead suggested for a cooperation with him. But now, he understood. As long as they cooperated with each other, everything that had happened before would be dissolved because this cooperation would make it appear as if the Yelang Clan was powerful and that naturally, would make people feel that Yelang Clan wasn't humiliated.
Qing Shui knew that if he didn't want to cooperate, the Yelang Clan was probably the first who wouldn't allow him establish here. The Yelang Clan was an influential clan. He reckoned that they normally wouldn't be bothered with nobodies as those people would definitely be eliminated immediately.
However, Qing Shui wasn't a nobody. The influential clans would definitely find out what Qing Shui had done in the Yehuang Country had they paid attention to him. Therefore, Qing Shui wasn't someone to be trifled with, regardless for his strength or his art of healing. This was also the reason behind Yelang Clan's initiative in treating him with due respect.
The Yehuang Clan was destroyed by this young man and another young woman. Although Yelang Clan was powerful, they didn't want to simply provoke anyone. Now that word about this had gotten out including Qing Shui's reputation, Yelang Clan couldn't weaken their own reputation either.
"Let me tell you that I am capable of bearing the consequences of what I dare to say. Old man, the Imperial Cuisine Hall will not cooperate with anyone." Qing Shui's words had clearly conveyed his attitude. However, the choice was still Yelang Clan's to make.
"I still hope you will reconsider about it, Physician. If you have made up your mind, feel free to pay a visit to Yelang Clan." Yelang Qiankun stood up, without showing any signs of surprise. He seemed to have already expected Qing Shui's answer.
After Yelang Qiankun finished speaking he stood up and went out.
Qing Shui neither moved nor spoke. When he had already conveyed his intention, he wasn't going to change his mind anymore. Therefore, he didn't feel the need to say anything else. He wasn't going to show any mercy if anyone blindly came for him.
Since he had no position, then he would need to make a name for himself first. However, he was clueless of the greatest strength among Yelang Clan. Were there any martial cultivators beyond Third Grade False God?
The strength of a Peak First Grade False God cultivator was two million sun, a Peak Second Grade False God was four million sun, a Peak Third Grade False God was seven million sun and a Peak Fourth Grade False God was 11 million sun…
The peak strength of every realm was the sum of previous realm's peak strength and the current grade multiplied by a million. For example, the strength of Peak Grade Five False God realm would be strength of Peak Grade Four False God, which was 11 million sun plus 5 million sun of Grade Five, which was equivalent to 16 million sun of strength.
Qing Shui possessed a paragon vessel now. The Paragon Heavenly Technique allowed Qing Shui to instantly kill any Peak Third Grade False God and below. Besides, there was also a weakening effect and being weakened by 30% was enough to demotivate anyone to hell.
He wasn't too worried. He watched as Yelang Qiankun left. Not long after that, the other two ladies also returned to his side.
"Qing Shui, what should we do? The Yelang Clan is obviously trying to overpower us," Yehuang Guwu said and took a seat beside Qing Shui.
"It's no bother. I would really love to see how Yelang Clan plans to do this," Qing Shui laughed. He wasn't too worried. Even with the other two ladies with him, he still had room for maneuvering.
When the two ladies saw Qing Shui's attitude, they weren't too worried anymore either. Without realizing it, Qing Shui had already become their pillar of strength.
The next two days passed uneventfully. But Qing Shui had a hunch that something would definitely happen today. It was an intuition;an indescribable feeling. On top of that, it was very intense.
When it was late in the morning, Yelang Qiankun showed up once again. This time, not alone but along with more than ten others. Most of them were elderly but two among them appeared to be middle-aged.
Moreover, they didn't come here alone this time. Before anyone realized it, many people seemed to have gathered around the courtyard. They seemed to know that something would happen here since long ago.
Qing Shui could tell where this was going. The Yelang Clan had come here to redeem their reputation.
Yelang Qiankun stood in midair. Qing Shui slowly ascended. Yehuang Guwu wanted to follow but Qing Shui made her stay down there and asked her not to get involved for now. He knew that as long as Yelang Clan couldn't take him out and if Yehuang Guwu didn't strike out on her own accord, they wouldn't provoke Yehuang Guwu on their own accord either.
Qing Shui went up there and stopped less than a hundred meters across from Yelang Qiankun and the rest. To cultivators who had attained such realm, this distance hardly amounted to anything. They would still be able to converse without any issues.
"Physician Qing. So, have you given it a thought? As long you cooperate with us, Yelang Clan, you will definitely have nothing to lose." Yelang Qiankun said with a smile.
The world of a cultivator was very simple. They sometimes appeared a little dim-witted to others and would brandish their weapon upon disagreement in the name of defending their pride. However, he recalled a saying from his previous world — excessive pride was just another form of inferiority.
Logically speaking, an influential clan should usually have a large capacity for tolerance. Yet he had no idea why in the World of the Nine Continents, the glorious ones simply couldn't tolerate any dishonor. For the sake of their clan, a person's life would seem so insignificant to them.
To Qing Shui, the current current state of affair was neither good nor bad. This was the culture and custom in World of the Nine Continents. Whoever didn't comply would incur a certain loss and the extent of this loss might not be estimable.
"I've said that I will not cooperate with anyone and there's also no need for me to do that. And also, I forgot to inform you that I hate to be forced the most. So now, let me give you a warning. Do not try to threaten or menace me with anything. You won't be able to bear the consequences." Qing Shui felt like it was necessary to give them a warning in advance since they knew about his existence would mean that they also know about Soulsearch and the rest.
"If that's the case, the Yelang Clan shall get even with you. Give us an explanation for killing our people." Yelang Qiankun replied calmly. He wasn't really agitated from the arrogance in Qing Shui's words.
"Explanation? I have none. I have the rights to do anything to the people who had barged into my courtyard and that includes killing them.
"What benefits have the Tianhe Clan given to you? I will offer you double." Yelang Qiankun hesitated for a moment before offering.
"The Tianhe Clan didn't give me anything. I don't need anyone to give me anything either. I can get my hands on anything I desire through many methods." Qing Shui said calmly as he declared his position to Yelang Qiankun, making it clear to him that he could get anything he wanted without relying on others.
"If that's the case, we shall talk with our fists then. Let's make it into a best of three match. If we win, you will provide a satisfying explanation to Yelang Clan. If you win, we will write off everything that had happened and the Yelang Clan will also guarantee your stability in the continent's capital;an indefinite guarantee. What do you think?"
When Qing Shui heard Yelang Qiankun's words, he knew that he was a sly old fox. By doing this, he could choose to stay in an offensive or defensive position. If they won, then it was still up to them to decide if they wanted to kill Qing Shui. If they lost, their clan wouldn't be involved either way and by offering Qing Shui impermanent assistance, they could not only form some ties with Qing Shui but also show the generosity of Yelang Clan.
"Three rounds are too many. Let's keep it to one only. All of you can come at me at the same time too." Qing Shui smiled.
Qing Shui was knew that there was no point in making it into three rounds. He only had a total of three people on his side but Yuan Su could be taken out of the picture. Since that was the case, he might as well fight alone.
"Two rounds, how about that?" Yelang Qiankun insisted seriously.
Qing Shui was really amused right now. During the battle with Yehuang Clan back then, both him and Yehuang Guwu weren't even cultivators of False God Grade. Only the few white tigers condensed by Yehuang Guwu had the strength of a Grade One False Gods.
Although it hadn't been that long since then, the strength of Qing Shui, Yehuang Guwu and the white tigers she condensed had undergone earth-shattering changes.
"Alright, fine. Two rounds. Promise me one other thing again if you all lose." Qing Shui pondered for a moment before smiling.
"What is it?"
"Help me find someone."
"That is fine. I can promise you that I will search for that person to the best of my abilities but I can't guarantee that I will be able to find that person." Yelang Qiankun's eyebrows were slightly knitted together.
"Fine. Let's begin. Who are you sending out to the battle?"
"Let me do this!" One of the two middle-aged men stepped forward among the crowd.
He was an enchantingly handsome man. Despite his middle-aged appearance, there was no sign of aging on his face but instead, the traces of vicissitudes of life and a few charming wrinkles were visible.
His eyes shone like stars, deep and sincere but alluring. It was a pair of manly eyes that were attractive to both women and men. Qing Shui suddenly recalled the man who had defeated Tianhe Renmo.
Was he that person?
"You are Yelang Wuji?" Qing Shui inquired softly.
"Did Tianhe Renmo told you that? Although the things I have done was hurtful to him, this is how the society is. Both of us like the same thing so it's only natural for us to fight over it. But he didn't manage to win." The man spoke softly. His words were arrogant but not piercing when they came out of his mouth. On the contrary, it sounded convincing.
"So what you are saying is that it's alright to snatch the things you like as long as you have the power?"
"This is the way of life in World of the Nine Continents. When a dynasty falls, a new dynasty arises. In reality, the new dynasty has snatched the position of the previous dynasty and has merely changed its name. Similarly, if a woman leaves a man and then falls in love with another man, although it may look like there's no connection in between these two, this is actually another invisible form of snatching. In this society, it's all about snatching from each other. There are many forms of snatching, some barbarous and involving bloodshed, while some are disguised. To be honest, a snatch in disguise isn't any kinder than snatching barbarously. It's just killing without spilling any blood."
The man didn't speak fast but his outlook on life had certainly startled Qing Shui. His words actually made sense. If a woman left a man and then threw herself into another man's arms, that meant that this man was more outstanding and capable than the previous man in her heart. This was a snatch in disguise and also at the same time, a competition of strength. That explained why most of the villains were rich and had beautiful women around them…
"Fine then, let us begin. Perhaps both of you can settle the matter between yourselves in the future." Qing Shui said with a smile, then gave him the signal to start.
"You better watch out then."
Yelang Wuji slowly drew out a longsword that was engraved with the sun, moon and constellations — the Sunmoon Constellation Sword.
A powerful wave of aura exuded from him. He was a False God cultivator.
Qing Shui also activated the strength in his own body. It wasn't odd for Yelang Wuji to not only attain the False God realm but also the Second Grade False God realm. This was the background of the Yelang Clan. As the genius of Yelang Clan, this achievement was within expectation.

AST 1379 –Yelang Clan’s Great Loss, Phoenix Dance Amalgation, Dongye Clan
Yelang Wuji’s power wasn’t too much out of Qing Shui’s expectations. Earlier on, he had only sensed their approximate abilities and had a rough gauge. It was just that the other party didn’t sense his own abilities.
Yehuang Guwu’s abilities were very vague as well. They might have been able to sense that she was only at Grade One False God but she still had six demonic beasts. Furthermore, they were Early Grade Three False Gods!
Yelang Wuji had already passed by one False God Tribulation. The False God Tribulation between Grade One False God and Grade Two False God was the easiest to break through. However, this was also where the most number of people die from tribulation. It was because there was the most number of people who reached this grade.
With a wave of his hand, Qing Shui called out the Nine Continents Mountain!
The Nine Continents Mountain could now reach a power of close to two million sun, reaching Peak Grade One False God. It had three times Qing Shui’s speed and that powerful Shield Attack. Even Yelang Wuji, who had just passed through the first False God Tribulation wouldn’t be able to receive the attack so easily.
“Make your move. If you don’t, then I will.”Qing Shui put his hand on the Nine Continents Mountain which was directly before and above him.
Sunmoon Light Void！
Yelang Qiankun’s brows furrowed tightly and swung his Sunmoon Constellation Sword. The skies within the surrounding 300 meters turned extremely dark. However, the Sunmoon Constellation Sword he was holding in his hand was extremely brilliant. It was as if the sword had absorbed all the light in the surroundings.
An immense power emitted from the Sunmoon Constellation Sword. Suddenly, Yelang Wuji looked toward Qing Shui with gleaming eyes. With a leap, he charged out toward Qing Shui.
However, he charged upward at an inclination and not dash out straight toward Qing Shui.
A piercing glow flashed on the Sunmoon Constellation Sword flashed and a crescent shaped Origin Energy Wave exuded the brilliance of the sun, slashing out toward Qing Shui.
“His battle technique isn’t bad. To think that he can bring Early Grade Two False God to close to the level of Peak Grade Two False God.”There was no anxiety on Qing Shui’s face at all. This level still did not bring him any sense of danger.
Qing Shui’s hand slapped down hard on the Nine Continents Mountain, which then charged out toward the energy wave, its speed fast as lightning.
With a tremendous sound, the energy wave disappeared. The Nine Continents Mountain also was slammed back for a distance from the collision.
Qing Shui’s figure suddenly appeared behind the Nine Continents Mountain and his hands brought out a huge golden roc!
Seal of Roc!
The strength of the Qing Shui’s Seal of Roc had exceeded five million sun and Yelang Wuji’s strength hadn’t even reached three million sun. Yelang Wuji’s countenance changed drastically on seeing the Seal of Roc. He could sense the dangerous aura that was exuding from it. Even if he could receive the attack, he would at least suffer from serious injuries.
The Sunmoon Constellation Sword in Yelang Wuji’s hand exuded a white glow that encompassed Yelang Wuji completely.
The huge explosive sound caused the surroundings to be blasted into smithereens.
The Seal of Roc collided against it, releasing a deep sound and then disappeared. The glow surrounding Yelang Wuji disappeared as well.
Sunmoon divine Movement！
Two balls of light appeared under Yelang Wuji’s legs, just like the sun and moon. Yelang Wuji made his move and his speed was several times faster than it was previously.
In terms of speed, there were not many people at the same level as Qing Shui who could be a match for him, let alone Yelang Wuji who wasn’t as powerful as him. Therefore, even after Yelang Wuji used the Sunmoon divine Movement, his speed was still no match for Qing Shui.
Nine Palace Steps!
Snake Elephant’s Movement!
Spirit Snake Exits Cave!
Qing Shui moved, bringing out a stream of Primordial Flame Dragon Whip, launching the Spirited Snake Movement lashing out toward Yelang Wuji, striking on his body.
This lash had a strength exceeding 2.6 million sun, about the same power level as Yelang Wuji. When struck by an attack of the same power as himself, he still had to suffer from some light injuries.
divine Dragon Tailwhip！
Qing Shui kept lashing out his Seal of Roc non-stop. He no longer used the Seal of Roc but used the Seal of Roc at his greatest power. This was the first time he was using his Seal of Roc against his enemy.
From the very start, he might lack a little fluency but his mastery increased gradually. At the very beginning, Yelang Wuji could handle it with ease but it got increasingly harder for him and eventually, he was lashed with wounds all over by Qing Shui.
Yelang Wuji didn’t even manage to touch Qing Shui’s sleeves. He was a far cry for Qing Shui in terms of speed and strength. If it was not because Qing Shui was trying to practise the Snake Elephant’s Movement and was also for the sake of Tianhe Renmo, Qing Shui would long have caused Yelang Wuji to at least suffer from serious injuries and lost terribly. If he were to use the Paragon Heavenly Technique, he would be able to have an instant kill.
With another lash, Yelang Wuji was sent flying back while spurting blood.
“You’ve lost!”Qing Shui’s calm voice rang out.
The people from Yelang Wuji were all stunned. Yelang Wuji was one of most outstanding in their generation but before this young man, he had no means of retaliating. Another reason was that the Seal of Roc this young man had performed earlier had an even greater prowess.
“It’s too unbelievable. To think that such a young man could defeat Yelang Wuji.”There were people below who were stunned.
“That’s right. Yelang Clan had wanted Yelang Wuji to bring them up another notch. To think that someone even younger than him had beaten him up and he wasn’t able to retaliate in the least.”
“There’s no need to fight anymore. Yelang Clan had already lost.”
“But there’s still one more round. Maybe Yelang Clan may win?”
“Regardless whether they win or not, Yelang Clan has already lost. Why else would Yelang Wuji came out? As long as Yelang Wuji were to win, everything would be fine. But with him having lost, it would be considered to be Yelang Clan’s lost. They have lost completely.”
“Sigh, we’ve lost!”Yelang Qiankun said this line with a deep sense of fatigue.
Yelang Wuji experienced an even greater sense of loss. He was the most outstanding person amongst people of his age but he hadn’t expected that someone so much younger than him would be more powerful than him. And the person was so much more powerful in comparison.
“There’s still one more round. Do you guys still want to continue?”Qing Shui smiled and asked.
“We’ll continue. This time around, I’ll be the one to fight. Which one of you will be my opponent?”Yelang Qiankun once again lit up his fighting spirit and said.
Yehuang Guwu stepped on the air and appeared directly next to Qing Shui.
“Call out the White Tiger directly. Two of them to protect you and four of them to attack.”Qing Shui said that and retreated to a distance away.
“Young Miss, make your move!”Yelang Qiankun said to Yehuang Guwu.
It was the first time that the lecherous Yelang Wuji was in no mood to think about anything when he saw a beauty like Yehuang Guwu. The blow that Qing Shui had dealt him was enough to keep him depressed for a very long time.
Yehuang Guwu didn’t say much and smiled as she waved her hands, condensing one White Tiger after another.
Yehuang Guwu sent four of the White Tigers toward Yelang Qiankun. The latter was a Peak Grade Two False God but the White Tigers were at Early Grade Three False Gods. Therefore, Yelang Qiankun’s burning spirit only lasted him the time for a few breaths before he suffered a terrible loss.
“Did I see wrongly? To think that this lady had defeated Yelang Qiankun just like that. If this lady were to fight against Yelang Wuji, wouldn’t it be an easier win…”
“Monstrous talent, demons…Birds of the same feather really do flock together. They’re really a good match.”
“Like I said, there’s no need to fight anymore. Yelang Wuji has lost. Yelang Clan has brought even more shame upon themselves. This couple should have an even stronger power backing them up. I wonder what kind of power would nurture this pair of demons.”
Yelang Qiankun had also suffered from serious injuries but he didn’t seem to care too much about his injuries. He stayed in a daze for very long before he said to Qing Shui, “All the things from before will be written off and Yelang Clan will fully support your setting up of the Imperial Cuisine Hall in the continent’s capital. And may I ask who Physician wants me to help to search for?”
“Get them to go back. We’ll talk after we go down!”Qing Shui said that and then landed toward the manor with Yehuang Guwu.
“You guys can go back. I’ll make the decision in this matter. Don’t say anything else.”Yelang Qiankun spoke with a grim countenance.
The other people left and Yelang Qiankun landed.
“Please take a seat!”Qing Shui invited Yelang Qiankun to sit down. Their positions were as the previous time but it was just that the mood was completely different now.
Qing Shui brought out a portrait and passed it to Yelang Qiankun. “Take a look at this person. He’s the one I’m looking for.”
Yelang Qiankun took the portrait from Qing Shui but when he saw it, he was taken aback. “It’s no wonder that I find you a little familiar. You’re looking for him?”
“That’s right. Are you able to help me get news of him?”Qing Shui said sincerely.
“Yelang Clan is unable to help Physician on this.”Yelang Qiankun let out a sigh and said.
Qing Shui didn’t say anything nor ask if Yelang Qiankun knew of this person. Yehuang Clan had told him a piece of news that the continent’s capital didn’t allow them to investigate this person. Therefore, he merely looked at Yelang Qiankun.
“It’s said that he’s the head of a powerful force but I don’t know who he actually is. Although I’m unable to help Physician, there’s a clan that can help you. As long as you have the abilities, then go look for Dongye Clan. They should be able to give you a satisfying answer. If you aren’t strong enough, it’s best that you don’t go,”Yelang Qiankun said softly.
“Thank you. Oh, right. Can you tell me about the Dongye Clan?”Qing Shui felt that the Dongye Clan’s should have a unique status in the continent’s capital.
“The continent’s capital has a powerful circle of forces and you may be able to enter it very soon. This Organization is known as the “Phoenix Dance”and Dongye Clan’s status in this circle shouldn’t be weak. The one that Yelang Clan has the most contact with is the Dongye Clan.”Yelang Qiankun went straight to the point.
“Do you know what level the strongest of the Dongye Clan is at?”Qing Shui gave it some thought and asked.
“I know that they have people at Grade Four False God level and Grade Five False God level as well. I don’t know if they have anyone who’s stronger. The higher the grade at the False God level, the higher the chances of failing. Therefore, there aren’t many people who can pass the fifth False God Tribulation.”
Grade Five False God level was considered nothing to Qing Shui now. The Paragon Golden Armor had allowed Qing Shui’s defense to reach a terrifying level. However, what Qing Shui was afraid of was that there would be the Heavenly Technique at the later phase of the False God realm. It could allow one’s abilities to get a lot stronger. This was the thing that he was worried about.
It seemed that he would have to go pay a visit to the Dongye Clan after some time. This Phoenix Dance Organization seemed to be very powerful. It should be the group that Yehuang Clan had mentioned. Whether or not he would join this group would depend on the nature of the group.
If there was a need, he would join the Demon Lord Palace.
Qing Shui looked in the direction outside the continent’s capital and thought to himself, “Wait a little longer. I’ll go look for you very soon. And that person who is supposed to be my father…What kind of person are you?”
Yelang Qiankun left. Qing Shui had no idea if there would be any more people from the Yelang Clan coming to regain their reputation. Anyway, the shame that Yelang Wuji had brought was gone for good. It didn’t mean that no one else would come knocking on the door but it would have to depend on whether Yelang Wuji had sufficient influence in the Yelang Clan.
From the afternoon onward, people started coming to visit Qing Shui, inviting him to their place. There were also people from great clans. Everyone saw Qing Shui’s potential and many people also knew of Qing Shui’s influence in the Yehuang City’s Imperial Cuisine Hall. Therefore, they were all here to get into his good books.

AST 1380 –Yelang Clan’s Decision, Opening of the Imperial Cuisine Hall, Cold and Lifeless
Toward the people who came, Qing Shui didn’t get overly close to them but he didn’t keep them away either. Of course, he wouldn’t attend the banquets they held either. After all, there were too many of them and it was impossible for him to attend all of them. Therefore, he could only find excuses to reject.
Although he rejected their invitations, Qing Shui told them that on the day of Imperial Cuisine Hall’s opening, he still hoped that they could come and support them. Naturally, all of them agreed but whether or not they would really be present was another thing altogether.
“You guys have really completely shamed the Yelang Clan. That kid must be killed.”
At that moment, in the hall of Yelang Clan, an old man said furiously. His countenance was very grim and his snow white hair was casually tied up by a thin rope. The old man’s forehead was protruded and his eyes were slightly protruded as well, flashing with a scary glow.
Yelang Qiankun seemed to only be a junior before this old man. He said carefully, “Old Master, this kid is really unusual. Although we’ve brought shame on ourselves, Yelang Clan isn’t lost yet. We can make use of this period of time to focus on our development. What do you think?”
“Qiankun, I know that you’ve always been very careful but since when has our Yelang Clan ever been so weak? How do you expect people from our Yelang Clan raise our heads high when they go out in the future? How will the people from the “Phoenix Dance”look upon Yelang Clan?”The old man looked at Yelang Qiankun.
“Old Master, that kid is definitely not a simple character. Please trust me this once. It won’t be long before some other clan encounters him and they’ll definitely suffer great damages by this young man. By then, our Yelang Clan won’t feel humiliated anymore.”Yelang Qiankun tried his best to fight for more.
“Qiankun, you’re disappointing me too much. How can I possibly be assured to let you take over Yelang Clan like this?”the old man sighed and said.
“Old Master, you must believe me. It’s not important who leads Yelang Clan in the future. What is important are Yelang Clan’s legacies,”Yelang Qiankun said anxiously.
“Alright, there’s no need to say any further. Qianyuan, go get rid of that kid. Do you have any problems with that?”The old man interrupted Yelang Qiankun and said to another man who wasn’t much younger than himself.
“No problem, Old Master.”The old man said a little excitedly.
“Then it’s good. The people from Yelang Clan will be temporarily in your command. No matter what, as long as someone dares to let the Yelang Clan be humiliated, then you must take his life. If you settle this matter well, then the Yelang Clan will be handed to you. Remember, you can make use of any methods,”the old man said this and disappeared directly.
Yelang Qiankun let out a sigh as he shook his head. He had tried his best to fight for his stand but why had things turned out like this? Could it be that Yelang Clan really can’t get past this trial…?
Yelang Qiankun headed out by himself, his back view appearing very desolate. Yelang Qianyuan looked at Yelang Qiankun’s silhouette as he departed, he himself wearing a proud smile.
Yelang Qianyuan felt extremely happy. He hadn’t expected that after waiting for so long, he had managed to get the position of the clan’s head. As long as he deals with this matter well, he’ll forever be Yelang Clan’s head.
However, he knew that Yelang Qiankun was no weakling, yet he had ended up suffering a terrible defeat. Therefore, he must be careful with this matter. No matter what, he must handle this matter well. The Old Master had said that it didn’t matter what methods used.
Since he was given the chance, he must hang on tightly to it.
The matter regarding the Yelang Clan had already pushed Qing Shui and the few of them into the limelight. Many people did now know of his existence and when Qing Shui saw this situation, he made a decision on the spot.
Opening the Imperial Cuisine Hall for operations!
The opening of the Imperial Cuisine Hall was a little abrupt but there was nothing required. Qing Shui had prepared the signboard and things like that a long time ago. The interior was ready as well. He had even found suitable attendants for the shop.
These things were easy to deal with with money, therefore, he opened the place for business without giving any heads up. The person to come earliest could not only get treated for free, their medicine would be free as well.
Tianhe Clan’s manor had a good location and a large crowd was attracted the moment Qing Shui opened for business. When Qing Shui first saw this place, he was very happy as well. It was because there were some shops of varying quality selling medicinal herbs in the vicinity. This allowed Qing Shui to be saved a lot of trouble as well.
Qing Shui had the rules of the Imperial Cuisine Hall written down very clearly. On the first day, Qing Shui and Yuan Su helped to provide medical treatment. Qing Shui would handle the male patients while Yuan Su the female ones. They each had their own private rooms for providing treatment. Yehuang Guwu’s job was to ensure the safety of the place. The Imperial Cuisine Hall had also recruited some cultivators as guards for the manor.
“Make way. Who gave permission for you guys to start your business here?”
An extremely disharmonious voice rang out and a group of people pushed through the crowd and came before Qing Shui.
Although Qing Shui had become famous due to the matter concerning the Yelang Clan, the people who knew of it was a small minority and they were mostly some great clans. To be honest, only a small group of people would know about Qing Shui.
Therefore, it was very normal for them to encounter some problems when they opened for business.
Qing Shui lifted his head slightly, looking at more than ten young men before him. The person in the lead was a fatty. Fat people tended to give people the impression of being simple and honest but this fatty was different from others. He was a good-looking fatty who couldn’t be said to be simple and honest but rather, appeared to be cold and held others in contempt.
“It’s Fatty Linghu. What is Fatty Linghu going crazy about today? Why does he always have a problem with physicians?”
“It’s because his illness had been worsened by physicians. In the past, he was Linghu Clan’s most outstanding genius. Back then, he wasn’t fat at all. But look at him now.”Saying this, the man let out another sigh.
“Do you know what illnesses it is?”
“I don’t. Those who do have all died.”
The person who asked shuddered and didn’t say another word.
“I don’t need permission to start my business. Please don’t interfere with my treatment of my patients.”
“That’s right, he is a Miraculous Physician and he’s providing free medical treatment today.”
“For free? Miraculous Physician? Have you ever encountered any Miraculous Physician who provides treatment for free? He’s a quack! A quack who can kill without spilling a single drop of blood.”The fatty bellowed loudly, seeming extraordinarily furious.
“You’re biased against physicians just because one had worsened your condition. But that physician who treated you did deserve to die. If I were you, I’d definitely kill him,”Qing Shui looked at the fatty and said, smiling.
The fatty was taken aback, “Who are you? How do you know about this?”
Qing Shui smiled. “Actually, many people know about this but they just don’t bring it up. I wonder if you’re willing to go back to the person you were in the past.”
Qing Shui spoke very softly and the fatty also trembled. He didn’t know why he seemed to believe what this young and handsome man said. Because of that quack he had encountered in the past, in addition to the fact that many physicians after him were all helpless to his condition, the fatty gradually lost his trust in physicians and became demoralized. However, his yearning to get well had never changed before.
He had wanted to reject but the feeling that Qing Shui gave him made him felt that he could be trusted. After having seen so many physicians, one more didn’t make a difference. Moreover, it was the first physician who could provide free medical services to the poor here. It was because it was written very clearly that only the poor are provided with free treatment.
Although the fatty wasn’t poor, he still held admiration for people who could do something like this. Of course, it must be if the person was truly a Miraculous Physician and truly wanted to help the poor. It was because many people were willing to see physicians who could embrace the world with a kind heart, to save those who were dying and to help those who were injured. Physicians shouldn’t be killers who could kill without spilling a single drop of blood for the sake of reputation.
The fatty nodded.
“Then leave with your people and come back a later time. You yourself must feel confident.”Qing Shui said softly and didn’t cast a second look at the fatty.
The fatty nodded and left. He even apologized to the people he had knocked earlier one by one. Earlier, rather than being knocked into, these people had only been squeezed to the side a little.
Qing Shui was agreeable with the fatty’s actions. The reason Qing Shui wanted to help him out was because he had seen too many things in his gaze. Qing Shui had the feeling that this person wasn’t bad and he had also overheard some of the comments the crowd were making.
The Linghu Clan from the continent’s capital seemed to also be a powerful clan. The reason Qing Shui decided to treat the fatty wasn’t because he was a person of the Linghu Clan. Qing Shui wouldn’t lower his head before any clan.
It didn’t take long before the number of patients reduced and they weren’t left with many. At that moment, some of the clans who had previously paid a visit to Qing Shui earlier came to offer their congratulations and even presented congratulatory gifts.
Qing Shui had wanted to keep to the system the Imperial Cuisine Hall had in the Yehuang Country but since they were still new here, he merely wrote out some conditions in which he wouldn’t provide treatment for now. This caused many people to feel uncomfortable.
However, Qing Shui still put up the conditions. The poor people were very welcoming of these but some people weren’t very comfortable with the conditions. Treatment won’t be provided to people who were rich but weren’t benevolent, people whose reputation were too horrid, people who were extremely arrogant, people whom he couldn’t stand, people who didn’t deserve to be kept alive…
What did he mean by people whom he couldn’t stand? And people who didn’t deserve to be kept alive…If Qing Shui didn’t want to provide treatment to them, all he would have to say was that he couldn’t stand them or the person didn’t deserve to live. Therefore, many people were cursing him.
“What on earth is this? Does he really think he is some Miraculous Physician? Let’s go, I can’t be bothered to support him.”
“Let’s leave as well. He really thinks of himself as god. The reason we came to support is because we think well of you. You don’t even know your standing and are thinking too highly of yourself.”
“I hope that your medical skills can justify the rules that you put up.”
Many people were extremely arrogant and prideful. The way Qing Shui was trying to suppress and express his contempt for the rich as well as some arrogant people caused many people to feel uncomfortable. It was because they knew that they were very rich and there were no lack of arrogant people in their clans. However, this was how people were. It was normal for them to be acting arrogant and prideful. They wouldn’t think much about it. However, they weren’t willing to hear this from someone else.
They were extremely resistant to Qing Shui’s rules and thus many people left without even entering. The business which could be bustling with activities now appeared to be a little cold. At the very least, it was a far cry from the opening of businesses of some great clans.
Wealthy people and people from great clans weren’t willing to be humiliated. Since Qing Shui was acting so arrogantly, if they were still to show they support, weren’t they asking for humiliation? Therefore, over 90% of the people left.
Qing Shui didn’t care about this nor did he feel unhappy in the least. On the contrary, he felt happy. The people who had came to offer their congratulations all received a token from the Imperial Cuisine Hall. In the future, they could bring this token to get one free treatment with no terms attached.
Although people might not know the value of this token for now, it wouldn’t be long before the people who had went back would feel great regret. And at a later time, this token would even become a priceless treasure and no one would be willing to bring it out to sell it.
At that moment, the fatty appeared alone. He hadn’t left and had been waiting not far away. Qing Shui knew about this long ago.
“Physician, you aren’t busy now, right?”Linghu Tui said, a little agitated.
“Come, let’s go inside!”
Qing Shui closed the doors to the Imperial Cuisine Hall and went in.
As Qing Shui walked, he thought to himself. If a man couldn’t be a man, nothing could bring up his interest no matter what good things were given to him. This was how it was for this Fatty Linghu.
His Tianyang meridian channel had broken!
Qing Shui’s words caused Linghu Tui to tremble. It was because the latter knew of his own condition. He was only afraid that Qing Shui would say that his condition couldn’t be treated.
