AST 1829 - Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda? Divine Technique Treasure?

Qing Shui felt like he was the most blessed person under the heavens. While walking onto the main street, he turned to look at the two ladies. Qin Qing glared at him while Tantai Lingyan turned her head away.

Qing Shui began stroking her palm, and in an instant, he felt her body shivering. This shocked Qing Shui as he did not realize that her palm was so sensitive.

There were many people crowding the streets. Luckily, the walkways here were much wider than in his previous life, where the crowds would clog the streets everywhere. Here, there were countless people but there was no overcrowding. Given the massive paths, no one would squeeze in with others.

Even if there was squeezing, no one could squeeze their way into Qing Shui.

“Look at these orderly, endless streams of people, their smiles, their frowns, their numb and scheming faces…” Qing Shui stared off into the distance as he calmly stated.

Tantai Lingyan raised her head to look around, having not noticed this detail while many who locked gazes with her quickly turned away.

“The three thousand worlds adhering to the natural order.” Tantai Lingyan casually said, looking at Qing Shui.

Qing Shui smiled, the three thousand worlds were mentioned in his previous life as the genesis of all life and Qing Shui agreed with Tantai Lingyan’s statement. This was a natural order, mysterious and spiritual. Even in his previous life, there were all sorts of people, but the strong conquered the world, while the weak could only submit.

“I’ve always been vastly different from them, just looking at them would not tell me anything, which is why I have to go and truly experience their lifestyle.” Qin Qing timely stated.

Qing Shui nodded, “Indeed, one journey speaks more than a thousand books. This is our so-called comprehension, feeling for a moment beats thinking for a day and this is why we need to ceaselessly train. Combat experience is far more crucial than anything else.

“Unluckily, combat experience is gained from gambling on one’s life, dancing on the knife’s edge.” Qin Qing emotionally sighed.

“Yeah, those who are able to live are all strong. To breed a general requires thousands of skeletons, behind every powerful cultivator is a mountain of corpses. Qing’er, you are already strong enough to dance on the knife’s edge, let’s spar for a bit when you have time.” Qing Shui earnestly said.

He was very serious with his first sentence but intentionally became frivolous with the second to hasten the dragged out process.

Tantai Lingyan was not a woman Qing Shui could give up on, but he felt a headache when it came to dealing with her. Still, he was confident, he just wanted to make this stubborn lass yield to him.

“En, Heavenly Fate Hall!” Qing Shui was shocked as he looked at a shop’s sign.

The little building had three floors, simple and old. It looked slightly shabby when compared to the neighboring shops, with long lines of people flooding into those buildings and almost no patrons coming into this shop.

Antiques held no value in this world, as there were countless objects of incalculable age in each household. They were left behind as heirlooms by their ancestors, yet this shop was precisely an antique store.

Antiques and tomb robbers in his previous life found it hard to start up a business, but once they had the ball rolling they could benefit for lifetimes.

This store’s existence symbolized its value. Qing Shui was merely shocked by the name, Heavenly Fate; he was familiar with objects possessing the Heavenly Fate, but was unsure if they were referring to the same thing.

There were many Heavenly Fates in Qing Shui’s memories. Those were exceptionally powerful treasures that could turn a situation around instantly, but Qing Shui was unsure if there were truly any treasures here.

“Let’s go in and see, maybe we’ll find some good items.” Qing Shui smiled as he said, pulling them into the store without waiting for their reply.

The outside was deserted while the inside was even emptier. Just by feeling it, people could tell that this was an old house. It wasn’t massive but was still around a thousand square meters wide.

There were old, worn-down counters everywhere. Many objects that would’ve been abandoned on the streets were displayed here, sold at exorbitant prices.

There was only a single person shopping. The shop owner was a middle-aged man who didn’t even acknowledge Qing Shui and the two women, merely looking at them slightly. Qing Shui could see a hint of arrogance and a sense of superiority in his gaze.

Qing Shui was very confused as to why this person had such an attitude. He just realized that it was a very natural arrogance, not at all faked or intentionally acted out.

Having gone around the products, the sole customer bought a small and cheap trinket before leaving.

Qing Shui and the women began looking around, seeing all sorts of objects, from plant and animal carvings to vases and bottles, all scattered around.

Additionally, some of these objects were already dusty. Qing Shui sighed in his heart. He had seen about half of the wares and had yet to find any Heavenly Fate treasures.

Suddenly, Qing Shui saw three pagoda-like objects. They were simple but caked with layers of dust. It looked like it had been ages since anyone had touched them.

Heavenly Vision Technique!

Qing Shui directly used the Heavenly Vision Technique on them and was immediately stunned.

Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda: (treasure) Can deflect harm of the same level, passive. Will become effective upon recognizing a master.

State: Requires three and a half drops of Blood Essence to recognize a master.

Now Qing Shui could finally understand why no one figured out how to use the treasure, given that it wasn’t common for people to split a drop of Blood Essence in two.

This Heavenly Fate Parry was disgustingly powerful. In a battle between two equal strength opponents, the user could have an impregnable defense. Of course, if the disparity in strength was too large, then it would naturally be useless.

Qing Shui looked at the three pagodas and realized that there were just enough pagodas for the three of them; it was like a divine-sent message. Qing Shui recalled the shop owner’s gaze and devised a plan to try and obtain the pagodas.

Qing Shui was indeed worried that the shop owner wouldn’t be willing to sell and was prepared to rob him if necessary. This object’s wonders could only be identified by him and normal people would only find them well-designed and pretty.

“Boss, we want to buy some objects.” Qing Shui looked at the shop owner and said.

The shop owner raised his head to look at Qing Shui, before slowly leaving the counter to walk towards him.

“What do you want to buy?” The owner asked Qing Shui.

“My wives really love these pagodas, how much are they?” Qing Shui casually asked.
