AST 1780 - Meeting Miss Yan’er again

Returning to the Dancing Phoenix Continent, Qing Shui wanted to return to the Imperial Cuisine Hall in this region no matter what, as Soulsearch was there. It had been a few years since they parted ways and he was dying to see how he was. There shouldn’t have been any accidents, given that he asked the Puyang Clan to watch over him.

Thinking about this, Qing Shui contemplated visiting the Puyang Clan and realized that he had many things to do here.

“Jiange, let’s first head to the Imperial Cuisine Hall.” Qing Shui smiled, Yiye Jiange was also aware that the Imperial Cuisine Hall was established by Qing Shui long time ago.

“I’ll follow you!” Yiye Jiange happily said, as she did not need to think and worry on Qing Shui’s side. An easy-going and tranquil lifestyle.

Upon arriving at the entrance, Qing Shui saw a woman that stunned him, while she was also shocked upon seeing Qing Shui and with a tinge of surprise, she shouted: “Qing Shui!”

She was seductive, with a well-rounded figure. The years hadn’t caused her beauty to wane, an oval face, almond-shaped eyes, with an unspeakable coquettishness. Her charm was not on the level of Yiye Jiange, but her aura and many years of familiarity made Qing Shui feel that she was very beautiful, by just seeing her took his breath away.

Li Clan Li Yan!

Qing Shui smiled, “Even you came to the Imperial Cuisine Hall.”

Qing Shui was not expecting to run into her here. She looked almost identical to the girl in his heart, even her voice and personality were similar.

Having arrived in this world for a few decades, he was still unable to forget his past. That pure sentiment, the goodbye he thought was final, he wished he would slowly forget it all.

He hadn’t thought about it too much for the past few years, but seeing her made his impulses to hold her surge.

Seeing those beautiful eyes, that straight nose, and those thick and sexy lips.

“En, I’ve been feeling under the weather lately, so I came to find Big Sister Li Ji.” Li yan lightly said, seeing Qing Shui also made her heart flutter slightly. She realized that this man, with all the fairy-like beauties around him, was on a completely different class from her.

Li Yan was a beauty and she had a special place in his heart, therefore, her beauty was no longer a question.

Yiye Jiange was shocked to look at Qing Shui’s expression, as women were very sensitive to such things. She could tell that Qing Shui’s expression was very unnatural, but she did not comment.

Qing Shui smiled: “Then let us enter together.”


Qing Shui then turned around, pulling Yiye Jiange and Li Yan inside. At that moment he saw Soulsearch and Li Ji walking out with a healthy and strong-looking child by their side.

“Older Brother, you’ve really returned.” Soulsearch said emotionally after seeing Qing Shui.

Qing Shui hurriedly gave him a bear hug.

Li Ji warmly welcomed Yiye Jiange and Li Yan.

“Yi’er, call him Godfather, your name was given by your godfather.” Soulsearch pulled the robust boy and laughed.

“Godfather!” The boy grinned as he smiled, revealing two adorable canines.

Qing Shui reached out to pat the boy, he looked delicate and yet very robust.

Qing Shui took out one of the products of his forging, a small axe. It was neither a False God Weapon, nor a Legendary Grade Weapon, but for a child his age, it was a decent weapon.

Qing Shui could detect that this boy was as robust as a bull, with powerful arms and strong bones, for him using hammers or axes was a good choice.

Qing Shui gave him the axe, but there was no sharp axehead, while its weight was only equivalent to a small hammer.

The battle techniques of axes were similar to that of hammers. Hammers were the best for smashing, while axes were the best for cleaving. To a certain extent, axes were about the sky-cleaving momentum, while hammers were about shattering the skies and the earth, both were imposing weapons.

Since this kid had already called him Godfather, Qing Shui naturally wouldn’t be stingy, “Kid, I’ll teach you a technique later, learn it well and you’ll be able to easily beat everyone down, and there will be many little lasses that will end up liking you.”

“Qing Shui, you’re corrupting the child.” Yiye Jiange laughed.

“Greetings godmother! Godmother is really beautiful, like a Goddess.”

Do not be fooled by his robust and tiger-like appearance, Sou yi was exceptionally clever, Yiye Jiange also took out a bottle of medicinal pills meant for strengthening the muscles and bones and gave it to him: “You are quite the sweet talker, little child.”

“This child bears no resemblance to his dad.” Li Ji happily said, looking at Sou Yi with boundless love.

Soulsearch welcomed Qing Shui, Yiye Jiange and Li Yan into their rooms. Qing Shui was very glad, returning here after many years, yet everyone was still natural and full of familiarity, allowing him to feel the warmth of close friends and brothers.

Real friends were like family, they made one feel the warmth and dependability..


“Miss Yan’er, where do you feel unwell, do you want me to give a diagnosis?” Soulsearch and his wife were busy preparing something, so Qing Shui asked Li Yan.

“Nothing much, I injured my meridians while practicing an art, I’ve bothered Mister Qing.”Li Yan smiled.

With the barrier of time, the two had already become slightly distanced.

Qing Shui took her pulse and realized that she did indeed injure her meridians and the injury was not light but was not even a challenge for Qing Shui. Even Soulsearch could cure her, as it was merely an injury to the meridians, not the severing of the meridians.

“En, it’s not too bad, I’ll help you fix it. When you return, eat this for a few days, this pills will ensure that your meridians will become stronger than before.” Qing Shui passed her a bottle of meridian-strengthening pills.

“Thank you, you’ve helped me. How should I thank you? Even if I pay you, it seems like you wouldn’t care for it.” Li Yan smiled.

“We’re all friends, there’s no need to be polite. Unless you’ve already forgotten this friendship.” Qing Shui felt a slight discomfort in his heart, but he didn’t know why. He just felt like something was off.

“I’ve always counted on Mister Qing as a friend.”

Qing Shui’s Life and Death Needles were from the Li Clan and have saved him many times.

Qing Shui could remember the shock of meeting her for the first time, as she wholeheartedly trusted him, using her life to test the Life and Death Needles.

That feeling of being trusted was amazing and as the years passed, her cultivation began to soar, but the gap with Qing Shui only began to widen. It was an indescribable feeling, as Qing Shui remembered once being relatively close to her.
