Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1685
AST 1685 - Eve Before Battle
Initially, Qing Shui didn't intend on allowing Old Jin (Jin Guizi ) and Old Mo to participate in the combat .
It was just that after a discussion with the females, they realized this wasn't good . If they did so, it would mean that they looked down on the two elders, not treating them truly as one of their own . If that was the case, how could the other members truly feel that the Sunset Palace was their family?
Qing Shui thought about it and sighed with emotion . He had experienced many battles in his life and right now, he realized that most of the time, he was always fighting alone . Even his women rarely fought together with him .
Now, although the disparity between their strengths was larger apart, it was still possible for them all to fight together . Qing Shui realised that he wanted to keep on fighting together with his companions in the future . Only by fighting together would the feeling of camaraderie come about . Not only did he plan to fight together with his women in the future, he wanted to fight together with his friends as well .
’’That's true... In that case, okay then, we will allow Old Jin and Old Mo to participate as well . ’’ Qing Shui smiled .
When Old Jin and Old Mo learned of the news, they were in fact extremely happy . Qing Shui didn't even have time to look for them before they showed up looking for him .
Qing Shui was someone who respected the old . In the Sunset Palace, Old Jin and Old Mo were considered the leaders of their races and both had extremely high statuses . Even Qing Shui and the three palace mistresses had to respect them . Naturally, they were both also people deserving of respect . Respecting the old and cherishing the young was a kind of virtue, and although decisions on major matters were still made by the palace mistresses, the elders could add their two cents as well .
Although things were said this way, only those at the top had absolute authority in powerful sects or aristocrat clans . Strength was everything . The attitude of the one with strength determined everything .
’’Sirs, why are you both here?’’ When Qing Shui saw the two old men, he stood up warm-heartedly to welcome them .
’’Mister Qing . ’’ We heard that the leaders would allow us to participate in this war against the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace . We wonder if this is true?’’
The old man who spoke had a sturdy build . Although his hair had gone white, his aura was incomparably vast and intense . When he walked, the sound of his steps created a slight sonic boom, like a heavy pressure slamming into the earth . This old man was none other than Jin Guizi, a supreme expert of the Diamond Immortal Turtle race .
The other old man had an extremely dark skin tone and was very burly . His eyes were filled with the vicissitudes of time and glinted with determination . He smiled and stared at Qing Shui with anticipation .
’’I just wanted to go look for you guys . I wonder if you two old sirs are willing to fight?’’ Qing Shui invited them to sit as he spoke .
’’There's nothing we want more . It has been so long since we last fought . No matter what, we have to participate this time . ’’ Old Mo hurriedly said .
Martial cultivators lived with their lives on the line line every day . Although they couldn't say they were born to do battle, it was an undeniable fact that combat was a very frequent part of their lives and that they might die at any time . Just like a saying in his past life - humans in the pugilist world are unable to control their fate . Warriors would battle constantly and didn't even have leeway for a single mistake . Nobody had the confidence to say they would win their next battle for sure and continue to live on .
’’That's excellent . That's our intent as well . I will have to trouble you two sirs then . ’’
’’Mister, you are too polite . We are a part of the Sunset Palace;it's naturally our mission to defend this place . ’’
Not too long later, the two old men departed . Qing Shui could also tell that this was necessary . Although sometimes not letting them join the battle was a way of protecting them, there were many cultivators who weren't willing to hide somewhere and wait for their deaths .
Time passed by very quickly . In just a short while, three days had passed .
Qing Shui and the Sunset Palace Mistress, Muyun Qingge, Old Jin and Old Mo brought along some people and appeared in a location not that far away from the Sunset Palace . There were many sunken mountains around the area, just like a ravine . However, this ravine was too vast .
Yiye Jiange also came . However, Qing Shui didn't allow her to participate in the battle . Qing Shui was confident, which was why he didn't stop Yiye Jiange from coming . There was still quite many experts who came from the Sunset Sea King Palace . After all, the distance was not far not far and many experts from the other powers came as well .
The timing in which they arrived wasn't too early . The people from the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace were already here . He felt that in terms of understanding each other's power, their opponent had more of an advantage . However, this was only on the surface . In reality, because Qing Shui's Violet Jade Immortal Realm had reached the peak ninth level, his strength once again explosively increased . This was something nobody knew about .
Qing Shui stared at the people of the Dragonwolf Palace . The one in the lead was a middle-aged man who resembled a human . He had a muscular figure and his most outstanding features were both his eyes and his forehead . The eyes of this middle-aged man were bright and sharp, containing a hint of imposingness .
Not only him, the others behind him all had the same special characteristic . This should be the unique characteristic of dragonwolves?
’’Qing Shui, that man in the lead is none other than the third palace master of the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace . He is a great genius of the palace, with overwhelming talent and who is also wise and cautious . He is very powerful;his attacks are sharp and sinister . You must take special note of him during combat,’’ the Sunset Palace Mistress reminded .
Qing Shui nodded his head . It seemed like the Sunset Palace Mistress had also received some news .
’’Behind him, the two old men are the protectors of the Dragonwolf Palace . The main point is that the two of them are brothers and can cooperate seamlessly, causing their power to increase exponentially . ’’ The palace mistress continued .
Qing Shui glanced at the two old men as he listened as he listened . Those two looked like classic dragonwolves but their faces were all wrinkled due to their age . Their eyes seemed somewhat listless and there was a lack of spirit in them as well . However, an extremely baleful aura would gush forth from their bodies occasionally .
’’It seems that there are still plenty of top-tier experts in the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace . ’’ Qing Shui smiled .
’’They are much stronger compared to the North Sea Dragon King Palace . Actually, without you, we wouldn't have any confidence of victory if we fought against the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace,’’ The palace mistress smiled .
’’You girls are so confident in me?’’ Qing Shui stared at her .
’’Mhm, with you here . I'm not afraid no matter who I have to fight against . ’’ Muyun Qingge then added .
Qing Shui awkwardly rubbed his nose . He saw Muyun Qingge smiling at him while winking mischievously .
This was just an ordinary action but when a woman as beautiful as Muyun Qingge did it, there was a fatal attractive power . Her snow-like skin was soft and supple . Right now, she even seemed to emit a jade-like halo that was like the blooming of a resplendent flower .
Muyun Qingge stared at Qing Shui who had fallen into a daze as he watched her . She suddenly blushed and shot out her hand silently to pinch him . After all, there were people around them, and there were many who were monitoring his movements .
Only now did Qing Shui return to his senses . Muyun Qingge retracted her hand, but the blush was still on her face . Qing Shui could only smile awkwardly before shifting his attention to the experts from the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace .
