AST 1510 - Killing the Gold-back Bear King, Diamond Fruit, Diamond Fruit Tree

Qing Shui didn’t say much, he just avoided the question using this effortless tactic, it wasn’t that he didn’t want to answer, just that it would have taken too long.

Spiritual places were also sacred grounds, there were Spiritual Veins, Spiritual Mountains, normally Spiritual Places were small in size, but the Spiritual energy there was very concentrated, however, Spiritual Places usually don’t last for too long, a few years later the energy would disappear.

Here in the small ravine, it was about 10,000 meters long and wide, which makes it count as a really small ravine, 

Inside the ravine were also many large rock formations, of course, in the perspective of a person, suddenly Qing Shui felt a strong odour emanating from a faraway rock cavern.

Where is the Gold-back Bear King?

Qing Shui looked back at the woman beside him, the woman nodded, but the woman was signalling for Qing Shui to go towards another side because there was a small tree there.

Or at least it could be classified as a small tree. It was about as tall as a person, about as thick as an adult’s arm, upright and powerful, so much so that if the sky were to fall on it it would still be able to hold against it, spreading out a strong aura.

Growing on it were ten Diamond Fruits as large as a fist, Qing Shui’s eyes brightened when he caught sight of it, saying: “Diamond Fruit!”

“Mm, yep, Diamond Fruit, in another three days it will be ripe, and the Gold-back Bear King is the guardian of the tree, in the event that the Gold-back Bear King eats one of the Diamond Fruit, then we will most likely be unable to take the bear.


As they were talking an earth-shaking roar rang out, Qing Shui saw a giant gold bear, its height about 200 metres, with four thick limbs, so much so that they were almost unable to see its chest, the entire back and head was a shining gold, enough to make an impact on their strength as it had the same effect as shining a light into their eyes.

The King Kong-like bear, strong and vigorous, with a bow-shaped back, four strong and sharp claws, sharp teeth, and with a menacing stare that locked onto Qing Shui and the woman.

Qing Shui immediately felt how scary the strength of this Gold-back Bear King was, from his perspective it wasn’t much weaker than him, but Qing Shui knew that this Gold-back Bear King’s strength came from its penetrating and scary defense.

The Diamond Fruit is one of the treasures of the universe, it could be put into medicine or just consumed directly, if it was going to be used directly when the user would have to have at least the power level of a Martial Saint, in addition, the benefits from the fruit are affected by the power and constitution of the person who was consuming it.

Qing Shui’s eyes brightened and turned to the woman: “So you came here for the Diamond Fruit.”

“Mm, yep, I needed the Diamond Fruit, and was thinking of giving you the Gold-back Bear King along the way,” the woman said lightly.

“Was there something that you needed my help for?” Qing Shui didn’t believe in free meals, and so saw that she was here for the Diamond Fruit so that she could give it to her Demonic Beast, Giant Azure Dragon.

“As of now I really have nothing, we’ll see later,” the woman said, playing down the situation, and then nodded to signify that the Gold-back Bear King was rushing over.

The woman raised her hand, spinning out a palm mark, and it came onto the Gold-back Bear King like ripples.

Bang bang bang...

A succession of sound rung out, the giant Gold-back Bear King’s body was stopped, then it was like trying to sail a ship in opposing tide, and did not advance, even slowly backing down.

The woman moved her palm, and a rippled mark slowly spun out.

The giant Gold-back Bear King couldn’t resist the two jade palms of the woman, then started to spin.

Qing Shui was stunned, though he quickly recovered, this was the power of Taichi, in addition, she had a high creative level, this was an ingenious use of her power.

“Do you want to try this Gold-back Bear King?” the woman asked Qing Shui without turning back.


Qing Shui rushed toward the Gold-back Bear King immediately, his palm filled with a strand of Golden Qi, then he punched the giant Gold-back Bear King.

Taichi fist!

Qing Shui’s punch was soft, but he had hit the weakest spot on the Gold-back Bear King, and Qing Shui’s Golden Qi in addition to the damage the woman had caused made it have an unstable condition.

The giant body of the Gold-back Bear King was propelled out by Qing Shui, although it wasn’t far, Qing Shui followed the bear out and hit it again.

Qing Shui’s Taichi level was not much worse than the woman’s, just that the woman’s technique and power surpassed Qing Shui’s, so it seemed that she was much stronger than Qing Shui.

But the woman was shocked at the time because she found out that Qing Shui’s artistic style with Taichi was possibly better than her own, that kind of boundary and grace was unknown to her.

This Gold-back Bear King’s strength was still not capped, Qing Shui didn’t really care about attacking it, as if he was unable to hurt his opponent.

This Gold-back Bear King was quite similar to the Super Shield Beast, actually even stronger, of course, the Super Shield Beast couldn’t be compared with Qing Shui’s Region Nightmare Beast, but this Gold-back Bear King wouldn’t be much weaker compared to it.

Qing Shui withdrew after attacking for a while, he wanted to see how this woman would kill the Gold-back Bear King.

The woman seemed to understand Qing Shui’s intentions, smiled slightly, this smile was extremely charming, devastatingly beautiful, Qing Shui was stunned, but quickly shook his head, as if he was trying to shake all he saw away.

The woman was surprised then reached out and made another ripple-like thing with her hands, which Qing Shui knew the purpose of now, these ripples were of the Control Power, didn’t have much damaging ability, but it didn’t matter whether they had a high defense or a high speed, these ripples could still prevent movement very well, of course, the extent of its power would be dependent on the target’s strength.

Suddenly the woman put her hands together, a drop of water-like liquid as large as the fist of a baby, sparkling and clear, shining with the light of a strange charm, sending a strong spiritual influence towards the Gold-back Bear King.

Ripple Lock!

The Gold-back Bear King seemed to be a little afraid of this strange thing, roaring loudly, but it couldn’t move its own body, 

Qing Shui was stunned at this moment. The killing power of this mysterious droplet seemed extremely great. This should be a trump card of the woman, one must know how insanely high the defence of the bear king was, yet this droplet of water could easily penetrate through its hide.

Then Qing Shui was stunned again since this giant bear was being toyed with by such a small weird liquid thing when the giant Gold-back Bear King finally toppled down, Qing Shui was in disbelief.

Qing Shui knew that if the woman and he switched places, the bear would still be dead. Of course, that didn’t mean that the Gold-back Bear King wasn’t strong, if he was the one fighting, he would still need to expend a lot of effort...

“If you need anything, go get it quickly, I’m going to get the Diamond Fruit,” the woman glanced back and said that with a smile, and then she went to the Diamond Fruit Tree.

Qing Shui brought out the Gold Essence Scissors, and, something that was perhaps even more interesting was that he was able to cut open this giant Gold-back Bear King, collecting all of the materials, the Gold back, Bear guts, Bear heart, demonic crystals, Bear bones, tendons...

There were also large paws, the bear penis..., when the woman came back, Qing Shui was just holding that large appendage, and her face turned red.

Qing Shui didn’t think that a woman such as her would grow red from this, this woman is supposed to be very strong and powerful, but she was still a woman at heart.

But Qing Shui still asked naturally, “Good stuff here, you want it?”

After saying this, Qing Shui thought that what he said was a little immoral, and regretted it a little, after all, it was a little rude, the woman was angry as a result since she thought that he was doing it on purpose.

“Why don’t you save it for yourself then!” the woman said rashly, even her cold voice was still good to hear.

Qing Shui watched the woman hand five Diamond Fruits towards him: “These are for you.”

Diamond Fruits are a great item, each person and Demonic Beast could only use one for their entire life, but its effect was indeed extremely strong, and it had no expiration date, it really was a great item.

“You’re giving me this much?” Qing Shui said with a smile.

“50% each of us,” the woman responded.

“Then, then can I have the tree,” Qing Shui felt that he was impolite doing this, pointing at the tree as he said so.

“You can’t be thinking of transplanting it right?” the woman looked at Qing Shui weirdly.

“Yeah, leaving it here would be quite a waste,” Qing Shui said honestly.

“I don’t know if you really don’t know this or if you’re faking it but the Diamond Fruit takes a few thousand years to ripen each time, in addition, the tree would die if it were moved, are you thinking of using the Diamond Fruit tree as materials?” the woman didn’t trust what Qing Shui said.

Qing Shui was a little gloomy, sometimes when he said the truth people didn’t believe him, and he was too lazy to explain, so he just nodded his head, or the woman would think that he was kidding before as well.

Qing Shui used four hours to move the Diamond Fruit tree, being wary of damaging too much of the root system. Even a woman of her stature didn’t think too much of it, thinking instead that he was using the roots in medicine, and needed to keep it intact as a result. There were many rules to being an Alchemist, which the woman didn’t understand, and just watched from the side.

Qing Shui’s hand entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal and looked for an excuse to find someplace convenient for him to enter it, plant the Diamond Fruit tree, water it with the Spring of Life as well as water soaked by the Great Sacred Buddha Stone.

Having done all this, Qing Shui was finally able to relax, his business here was done. Qing Shui then went forward into the treasure room and suddenly conceived of a new thought, pulling the woman along with him since she was so powerful.

“Is there anything urgent you need to do?” Qing Shui saw that there wasn’t anything left here, and normally this was there they would each part ways.

 “What, is there something you want?”

“I have a Treasure Map here in the middle of Kunpeng Mountain, the reason I came this time was to look for the location of treasure,” Qing Shui said with a smile and wasn’t afraid of any evil thoughts that may have come out from the woman, possibly because she was one of the women in the Portraits of Beauty, and so he had a blind trust with her.

The woman stared blankly at Qing Shui: “You’re not afraid that I would attack you halfway through?”

“It wouldn’t be that easy for you to kill me, and I feel like there’s more you’re going to need me to help with, and wouldn’t attack me this quickly,” Qing Shui smiled without a care.

“You really are cunning, let’s go then,” The woman flew into the sky.

Qing Shui followed suit, this really was at the edge of the territory, this time Qing Shui immediately called out the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, invited the woman with him, who hesitated a little before standing next to Qing Shui.

Qing Shui still didn’t know what the woman was called, actually, he didn’t know anything about the woman except that she was a woman, and said curiously: “I just realized that I know nothing about you.”

“What do you need to know!” the woman said with a smile, facing Qing Shui, it was very generous, very graceful, the shyness and reproach before seemed to have become faintly discernible.
