AST 2178 - A Battle With The Demon Gate Junior Sect Master

“None of your business,” Beihuang Fan gave Qing Shui a fierce glare.

“Please satisfy my needs then. Act like a little woman and make me happy,” Qing Shui smiled.

“Go to hell!”

Beihuang Fan did not know how to speak sternly. After meeting Qing Shui, she could not help but say something she never tried before. Yet, Qing Shui felt that these words made her sound more feminine.

For sure, he was not denying Beihuang Fan’s femininity, but there were various types of women. Beihuang Fan was a lady in her own way; she had the most unique charisma and was extraordinarily elegant and gentle. Apparently, nothing in this world could gain her attention.

“Marry me, I will make you eat well and happy…” Qing Shui would confess once in a while; he also promised to pursue Beihuang Fan before.

“What are you talking about?” Beihuang Fan really wanted to beat him up.



Three days later, they received news from the Divine Palace that Yin Tong was severely injured.

Qing Shui was dumbfounded. Yin Tong nearly lost his life in the sneak attack and was barely saved by Qing Shui. Qing Shui was extremely angry, Yin Tong was ambushed on his way to look for Qing Shui.

Besides, the attacker brought a message to warn Qing Shui that he would be dead in three days’ time.

Qing Shui informed Yin Tong and Lan Lingfeng to stay in the Divine Palace unless it was necessary to leave. They could just send a message if anything happened.

Currently, only Qing Shui and Beihuang Fan were in the Imperial Cuisine Hall. Zhang Yue and a dispensary assistant were around too. After all, they only treat the incurable diseases here, so there were very few patients. Sometimes, there was hardly a patient in several days.

Beihuang Fan kept her forehead crumpled. One day had passed and the opponent mentioned that they would come in three days, that would be no mistake. She did not know if she could protect Qing Shui and had no idea of the opponent’s plan.

“No worries, Miss Fan. Come, let's have a walk,” Qing Shui smiled and did not seem to bother.

“Okay!” Beihuang Fan nodded.

Qing Shui led the way out of the Imperial Cuisine Hall, as they headed to a remote area. There was also a deserted region in a bustling place.

“Qing Shui, are you trying to lure those people out?” Beihuang Fan asked.

“It doesn't matter if they would appear or not, they are just a bunch of clowns. I only want to enjoy the time being with Miss Fan,” Qing Shui held her hand and strolled slowly.

“You're just talking nonsense, let go of me……”


“I'm going to hit you!”

“If you hit me, I'll grab……”



“Haha, I didn't expect you to be a flirt. After these years, you're the first one who made Miss Beihuang fall for you,” A clear voice was heard.

A cool and young man appeared nearby.

“Demon Gate Junior Sect Master!” Beihuang Fan told Qing Shui.

Demon Gate Junior Sect Master? Qing Shui then looked at the young man in front of him. Wearing a black robe, he did not appear gloomy but looked cultured instead. He was as graceful as a natural nobleman.

His facial features were very good-looking and his eyes were as bright as the stars. His tall nose, fair skin, and his slightly feminine eyebrows made him look like a pretty boy.

Qing Shui had heard about the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master from Beihuang Yu, and he was stronger but older than Beihuang Yu. Qing Shui could sense that this man was absolutely stronger than Beihuang Yu. Besides, he probably owned some special abilities on top of it.

“I've been chasing her for twenty years, but she never gave in to me, needless to say, to hold her hand,” The man sounded depressed suddenly.

Qing Shui stunned and looked at Beihuang Fan, “It's a surprise that somebody would admire you.”

“What do you mean?” Beihuang Fan was so annoyed that she wanted to bite Qing Shui.

The man stared at Beihuang Fan bitterly, “Could it be that because I'm from the Demon Gate? What's wrong about Demon Gate? People from Demon Gate have rights to fall in love too. Aren't there many successful endings of people from the opposing parties?”

The man mumbled while looking at Beihuang Fan with his gentle eyes. Though Qing Shui was standing right beside Beihuang Fan, the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master did not seem to notice him.

Beihuang Fan looked at the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master this time, “Are you the one who gives the command to kill Qing Shui within three days?”

Demon Gate Junior Sect Master nodded, “I want to fight with him and I want to see what's so good about the person you like.”

Beihuang Fan did not argue whether she liked Qing Shui or not; she did not care about what others would think.

“No matter of win or lose, I don't like you and I will never like you,” Beihuang Fan said seriously.

“Let's fight then, how should we fight?” Qing Shui had a strong battle intention.

“You're the next Lord of Divine Palace and I'm the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master, so we will meet sooner or later. Since that was the case, any bet would be insignificant, it would sound even childish to request you to leave her. Let's fight simply and don't hold back!” Demon Gate Junior Sect Master replied after a brief thought.

This statement implied that they were actually betting on their own lives.

Qing Shui nodded and asked, “Did you hurt my friend?”

Demon Gate Junior Sect Master shook his head, “No, believe it or not, I would never deny the things I've done.”

“Okay, let's begin then!” Qing Shui said.

“Qing Shui, I'll fight with you,” Beihuang Fan said.

Demon Gate Junior Sect Master trembled slightly; there was a sense of sorrow in his eyes.

“This is a matter between men, woman please leave us alone,” Qing Shui said directly.

Beihuang Fan obeyed and stopped talking; this hurt the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master further. It would be wonderful if he was this man. He would love her dearly and never talk to her like this. Unfortunately, the destiny made fools of people, as he was destined to be forever alone to be on the opposing team. He was upset when he was thinking about her, and it was disheartening to think that she had a crush already.

It was nonsense to say something like ‘let her go if you love her’ and ‘be happy for her happiness’. These were just excuses, as only a fool would let someone that he or she liked to slip away. These were just excuses to comfort himself when he could not get the one he liked.

Qing Shui operated his strength to the maximum. Both of them did not use any weapon and dashed towards each other simultaneously.

A fist!

Qing Shui used the Taichi Fist.


The strength was powerful as Qing Shui used his Taichi Diversion Technique. In a flash, he made the opponent spin and back off.

Qing Shui startled. The strength discrepancy was too great; the opponent’s attacking power was much greater than his defensive power.

After canceling around 10 billion Dao Force and blocking 1 billion Dao Force, there were still more than 30 billion Dao Force left that went through him.

With Qing Shui’s raw strength and the aid of his Divine Weapon, his attacking power was only several billion Dao Force. Without a Critical Strike, there was not even 10 billion Dao Force.

The Demon Gate Junior Sect Master made a strike and he was as swift as a phantom. He dashed towards Qing Shui and hit again.


Gouging Strike!


Qing Shui was thrown away by the strike. As he came back to his senses, the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master already regained consciousness from the Stun. He was dazzled and sprinted towards Qing Shui again.

Buddha Bright Seal!

This was applicable for a distant attack; hence, the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master was stunned and became dizzy once again without actual physical contact.
