AST 1933 - An End, Making Preparation

The appearance of the old man gave peace to Qing Shui’s side. It was unlikely that this place would be disturbed by other people for the time being. After all, the Great Confucian Empire was still a very threatening existence. At noon, Qing Shui was surprised to see Dongfang Zhiqiu and her brother visiting him.

They were here to bid them farewell.

“Brother Shui, my brother and I are both returning to the Heavenly Chess Immortal Palace.” said Dongfang Zhiqiu in a lonely tone. As usual, her brother was wise and dull. The women would usually find men like him very attractive.

“Thank you for assisting me in stopping the Five Poisons Immortal Palace.” Qing Shui smiled and said. He was already informed about the things which the Dongfang siblings had done.

Deep down in his heart, Qing Shui had already treated Dongfang Zhiqiu as his friend, an intimate friend.

“The Five Poisons Immortal Palace was responsible for laying their hands on my sister. There is no need to thank me for it. In the future, feel free to come and visit the Heavenly Chess Immortal Palace.” The man revealed a smile on his face.

Qing Shui’s impression of this man was only decent. He nodded, “I will definitely go there provided that I have the opportunity to do so.”

Dongfang Zhiqiu was staring at Qing Shui. Her beautiful pupils were flashing with traces of sorrow which words couldn’t describe. She seemed like she wanted to say something but yet was unable to do so. Eventually, she waved her hand at Qing Shui, “You must come and visit me at Heavenly Chess Immortal Palace or else, I will hate you for life.”

Qing Shui was stunned. But then when he saw her expression, he nodded and said, “I promise you that I will definitely go to the Heavenly Chess Immortal Palace to visit you.”

“So, you managed to get another beautiful woman to fall into your trap.” Qing Hanye let out a soft laugh beside Qing Shui.

Qing Shui didn’t move his lips. However, Qing Hanye was able to hear clearly what he muttered, “You little witch, I will deal with you tonight.”

“Go ahead! As if I will be afraid of you!” Qing Hanye’s voice was clearly transmitted into Qing Shui’s ears. Upon hearing that, Qing Shui got really fired up. If there were no huge crowd at the moment, Qing Shui would have banged her immediately right on the spot.

The Dongfang siblings left. If not mistaken, the Five Poison Immortal Palace should also have taken their leave. In fact, there wasn’t really anything which involved the two great sects to begin with. The reason why things ended up like this was merely that of the Grand Elder and Dongfang Zhiqiu. Luckily, things haven’t developed to the point of no return. Basically, both the Heavenly Chess and the Five Poisons Immortal Palace didn’t make a big fuss over it.

The problems which revolved around the Great Confucian Empire could be considered as solved. Qing Shui was now the master of the future Great Emperor of the Great Confucian Empire. Not only that, but he was also a Battle God Inheritor. For a while, it was unlikely that any major wars would unfold around here.

Though the Great Confucian Empire might seem to be rich and powerful, in actuality, it was already riddled with gaping wounds. Hence, the empire has stopped expanding itself externally. Instead, it was focusing on developing its internal strength.

The girls from the Sunset Seaking Palace and the Dragon Wolf Palace were also ready to leave. Qing Shui sent them away himself.

After going through the things around the Imperial Cuisine Hall, Qing Shui took the other girls along and immediately appeared in front of the Divine Cave. After that, they rushed their way to the Sunset Seaking Palace together.

Upon arrival, the girls were pleased to find out that not much changes had taken place in the palace. They were finally able to put their mind at ease. Actually, these were all within Qing Shui’s expectations. After all, the current Sunset Seaking Palace was already one of the most powerful forces around the area. Under normal circumstances, very rarely would anyone attempt to provoke them.

Qing Hanye received the Poison Dragon King. Furthermore, its strength was even more superior now. The Dragon Wolf and Sunset Seaking Palace was a complete being from Qing Shui’s perspective. Nevertheless, this didn’t mean that if they didn’t merge into one, there wouldn’t be any advantages. Of course, they could still look after one another.

Their strength was very close to one another. Maybe in the future, they might truly get to merge into one. However, for the time being, it wasn’t really important.

“I can finally rest for a while now. During this time, my heart has always been feeling uneasy.” Yiye Jiange let out a sigh of relief and said.

“That’s because Jiange has more people that she was concerned about than me. Here, let me carry the little brat for a while.” Luo Qingcheng took over Qing Xiu as she was speaking.

Even Qing Shui felt that the little brat was very blessed to have so many people spoiling him.

“Qing cheng, since you are so fond of children, why don’t you try giving birth to one?” Qing Hanye smiled and made a joke about it.

Qing Shui was aware of the little witch’s change. Prior to this, or rather, a long time ago, she possessed the Nine Yin Body and had a pair of amorous eyes unmatched in her generations as well as a bewitching body. The girl at that time tended to get shy very easily. But ever since then, this woman had matured a lot. Though she still retained her habit of getting shy very easily, she had become a lot more daring, or rather, charming.

For many times, Qing Shui would feel strongly about the so-called destiny between humans. It was something which words could never describe. Those that brushed past each other could only be strangers. It would be very difficult for them to meet each other again in their entire lifetime. However, when destiny came, they would become the closest person they could ever have for each other.

“Ye`Er, are you pregnant? Let me feel it…..”

Luo Qingcheng was not someone who was easy to deal with. Qing Shui began to touch Qing Hanye as he spoke. As soon as he interacted with her, the first thing he came in contact with was her bulging breasts.

Qing Shui rubbed his forehead.


Qing Shui stayed over at the Sunset Seaking Palace for a couple of days. He was very intoxicated with the tender land. Every single day, Qing Shui lived his life like a God. However, after a few days, Qing Shui still went back to the Imperial Cuisine Hall.

Qing Shui reminded the girls to work hard on cultivation. He also left behind quite a lot of the Nine Revolution Golden Pellets, Fortune Golden Pellet and the Yang Pellet.

After heading back to the Imperial Cuisine Hall and greeting the people around there, Qing Shui made his way to the backyard. Along the way, he ran into the Thirteenth Prince.


The Thirteenth Prince was very delighted to see Qing Shui. The Bear Form which Qing Shui taught him had benefitted him a lot.

“Yes, oh, I just remembered. How has your practice been going on? Let’s go to the backyard so that you can demonstrate it to me.” Qing Shui wanted to test how well the Thirteenth Prince was in comprehending the skills which he taught him.


Qing Shui had also noticed that the Thirteenth Prince’s body had gotten a lot thicker than before, and it had only been a few days. Hence, Qing Shui was able to tell that the Thirteenth Prince possessed extraordinary talent. However, he wanted to see just up to what extent he had practiced his Bear Form.

He carried a great might and yet was very stable. Though a bit clumsy, he managed to retain his nimbleness.

It seemed that the Thirteenth Prince was quite decent when it came to comprehending martial skills. Though his realm was still relatively low, it had only been a few days which made it acceptable. As long as he dedicated his mind to it, in the future, his realm was bound to increase.

“Good, the characteristic of the Bear Form is both in its might and its force. Most importantly, you need to be steady, as steady as a mountain, an immovable mountain.”

Qing Shui only went through it briefly and the Thirteenth Prince was already able to understand it with his comprehension skills. When Qing Shui finished speaking, he left, leaving the Thirteenth Prince alone to ponder over the things that he said. After that, he continued on to try again and again. The more times he did it, the happier expression he had on his face. This was because he noticed that his Vicious Bear Battle God Inheritance’s level had begun to rise. He had already been stuck in the same realm for quite a while.

It felt just like when a person broke free from the chains which were locking him.


All along, Qing Shui had been pondering over one question, that was, whether or not he should leave this place and travel to the True Nine Continents World. Though he was confident with his strength, he believed that there should be many people whose strength was even more superior than his.

The Archs from the Barbarian Emperor’s brain had already been extracted out by Qing Shui. The Barbarian Emperor felt reborn and now he understood a lot of things which he didn’t understand before. Furthermore, he had also made his decision to go to the True Nine Continents World together with Qing Shui. Qing Shui was the one who gave him his life; thus, he wanted to follow Qing Shui.

Qing Shui didn’t reject it. Instead, he became brothers with the Barbarian Emperor like how he did with Yin Tong and Lan Lingfeng.

Until now, Qing Shui hadn’t used the Immortal Dao Divine Origin. He wanted to wait, wait for his body to completely stabilize itself first. Qing Shui knew better than anybody else about the condition of his body. He had a feeling that now was an inappropriate time for him to use the Immortal Dao Divine Origin.
