AST 1695 - Bottleneck, Perplexion, The Second Palace Lord

These days, Qing Shui rarely used up his time in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. He was still used to the time limit before. It was just that this time he stayed in there until he was almost about to be kicked out.

The time that passed outside was still six hours, but the time that passed in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal increased onefold.

This state had been around for quite a while, but it wasn’t that easy to remove. It needed to be diluted with some other things, to make it much easier to remove the lock. It couldn’t be opened, so all he could do was let it be.

After he came out, the sky was a little bright. He was just going to check on Yiye Jiange; after all, he could go two hours earlier, which also happened to be before she woke up.

When he went outside today though, he saw that she was already awake in her drunk-like face. She was pregnant to the point that it was obvious now.

A smiling Qing Shui went over to hold her, and slowly paced around the garden.

“Is it that something is bothering you? Why don’t you tell me, so that I can help you with it?” Yiye Jiange naturally was able to tell that Qing Shui was thinking about something.

Although Qing Shui didn’t deliberately show her, he also didn’t deliberately hide it. The women close to him would know when he was thinking about stuff, but now, only Yiye Jiange would ask him about it.

“Nothing much, only that I don’t know why I’m suddenly so disoriented. My strength also hasn’t improved much,” Qing Shui said this with a smile, as though he didn’t really care.

“You’re too young. Your experiences so far can be said to be plentiful, but after all, you don’t have the molding that age brings,” Yiye Jiange said warmly after thinking about it.

Qing Shui was stunned, stood where he was for a while, looked at Yiye Jiange, and then said warmly, “It seems like you have a point.”

“Really?” Yiye Jiange blinked those beautiful eyelashes. Hers was an attraction that didn’t belong to this world.

Qing Shui kissed her from her head to her erotic lips, then said, smiling, “Actually I also felt that way. For example I never thought that a girl like you would like me, become my wife to the point that I’d be afraid to lose you but wouldn’t be able to say it. Also, some things made me a little worried about gains and losses, making me disoriented, but worried…”

Yiye Jiange held Qing Shui’s hand: “Since when did you become so unsure of yourself? You were never like this before.”

“Maybe it’s because the more I have, the less boldness I have, the more I’m afraid of losing stuff, since I had nothing before.”

“You feel like a coward? Why don’t I feel that?” Yiye Jiange said with a smile.

Qing Shui giggled, “Sometimes, I’m pretty bold.”

After talking with Yiye Jiange for a while, Qing Shui found that he was much better than before, and more relaxed. Although Yiye Jiange didn’t say much, she was so special to Qing Shui; a teacher and a friend, a close female friend who held a very special place in Qing Shui’s heart.

“The little one has been moving a lot lately. It kicks me at least once a day,” Yiye Jiange said with a smile full of blessedness.

“He dares to kick my woman? Let me chastise him when he comes out,” Qing Shui crouched in front of Yiye Jiange.

“You dare!” Yiye Jiange laughed as she said it.

Seeing Qing Shui’s smile filling with warmth, she only had this man in her heart. No matter what she did for him, she was still willing. The only reason that she changed so much was because of him.

“Is there nothing going on at the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace?” Yiye Jiange reached out and stroked Qing Shui’s head. This was a nice picture. Qing Shui also liked this. If it were another woman, it would have been hard for Qing Shui to let her do this.

“The Head Palace Lord has already started to move. The Second Palace Lord’s strength has already diminished by one third,” Qing Shui saw the current situation in the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace through his Spirit Fish.

Yiye Jiange already knew that the Palace Lord was Qing Hanye, who had come from the Greencloud Continent and had known Qing Shui previously. When she came to the Northern Sea Territory of the Haohan Continent, even she felt that she was close, so Qing Shui must have felt so even more.

Ever since she had gotten pregnant, whenever she felt the life in her stomach, she felt her heart jump a little. Thinking about life in the future made her full of hope and strength, but a little indifferent to Qing Shui.

This type of indifference wasn’t truly feeling uncaring. It was more like she felt numb to many desires.

Qing Shui also saw this, and he felt a little depressed as he bitterly smiled at Yiye Jiange: “Has my place gone down a step?”

“Stinky bastard, you’re going to haggle about this,” Yiye Jiange knew what Qing Shui meant.

Yiye Jiange’s excitable temperament was full of destructive power.

As she saw Qing Shui being a little stunned, she continued: “Will she be okay?”

“She should be fine. Her body is innately strong. Normally she’d do well against me. I don’t know about that Second Palace Lord, but I think he will lose to her.”


“Because the Head Palace Lord is a woman.” The reason Qing Shui agreed to not interfere was because of that reason. He even gave Qing Hanye more than ten years of time, because he was sure that he would lose. He didn’t do anything ten years ago and he still wasn’t going to now.

Qing Shui was able to understand men pretty easily because he was a man, but he wouldn’t allow himself to make a move in front of the woman he loved. This threshold wasn’t one that anyone could pass.

The language of love was something that no one could really understand.

Yiye Jiange looked at Qing Shui: “You understand women this much?”

“I just understand myself.” Qing Shui smiled.


But some things seemed to be very unreliable, because after many days, Qing Shui stumbled upon something unexpected as he was pacing around by himself.

He encountered the Head Palace Lord of the Eastern Peak Dragonwolf Palace.

There were about two months left before Yiye Jiange’s child would be born. For some reason he was a little confused and talked with her a little farther.

The man in front of him had a toned body, with thick eyebrows, large eyes, and a straight nose. His eyes which were unusually bright seemed to possess a sort of farsightedness. This was a man at peak condition; he was very handsome with an indeterminate age, but he seemed very young and mature.

Qing Shui was able to see the Second Palace Lord through the Spirit Fish, and it was because of that that he could admit it, but he hadn’t personally seen the large force of impact. As he looked at the tranquil look in the man across from him, he knew that he had rushed over himself.

“You must be the man that Qing Hanye likes so much!” The Second Palace Lord said a phrase that Qing Shui didn’t know how to decipher.

Qing Shui didn’t say anything, and quietly watched him.

“Every now and then, I see her taking out a picture with you on it,” the Second Palace Lord didn’t let Qing Shui ask anything and continued talking, his voice remaining quiet as before.

However, Qing Shui felt something weird about that peaceful voice.
