AST 2206 - Divine Artifact, The Goddess Is Already Taken?

Star God Pendant, Divine Artifact, able to be boosted and could recognize an owner after dripping seven drops of their essence blood onto it in ten sittings.

It could block a fatal blow for its owner once every day and could increase the strength of all aspects of the owner. One of the side benefits was that it could boost the recovery rate of injuries, essence, and energy.

Star God Energy. There would be a certain chance that this would activate automatically whenever the owner attacked, and would negate 20% of opponent’s defense.

Star Teleportation. After blocking a fatal strike once per day and if the owner encountered further critical danger, the pendant would teleport the owner to a safe place ten thousand miles away and aid the owner in concealing his aura completely for four hours.

Qing Shui was startled. This was an extremely powerful item. Possessing it meant that one would have two extra lives every day. It could even boost 20% of all aspects of strength. Not to mention the most important point, which was that this divine artifact could grow further and continue to level up.

Many divine artifacts would still retain the possibility to ‘level up’ further but it was very tough for them to do so. However, as long as they had this ability, their value would instantly shoot up by many times.

Beihuang Fan noticed that Qing Shui kept staring at the pendant. She curiously asked, “What? Is it a good item?”

“Indeed!” Qing Shui immediately replied.

“What’s so good about it?” Beihuang Fan was very curious. Qing Shui moved closer to her, took one of her fingers, and suddenly bit it. 

Beihuang Fan was surprised by Qing Shui’s action. She wanted to pull her hand back instinctively from the shock and pain. Qing Shui savored the moment for an instant and even licked her finger. This caused Beihuang Fan to panic but a moment later, her essence blood had dripped onto the pendant.

When the pendant began to glow with a dazzling light, Beihuang Fan was surprised once again. This was too beautiful. After the process was completed, Qing Shui fastened the pendant around her neck.

She felt very comfortable but what truly shocked her was how powerful this Star God Pendant was. She then inclined her head and stared at Qing Shui. This man clearly knew how valuable this item was and yet, he had chosen to give it to her.

“Qing Shui, this is too precious. I can’t accept it…” Beihuang Fan said.

“It has already recognized you as the owner,” Qing Shui said and smiled.

“Don’t worry about it. I’m giving this to you willingly. You don’t need to feel any psychological pressure. If you really aren’t fond of me, I wouldn’t force you. You don’t need to feel that you owe me because you are someone that I love,” Qing Shui laughed as he spoke.

“Someone that I love...” These four words gave Beihuang Fan a huge rush of impact.

“You are also someone who has a position in my heart, other than my family members,” Beihuang Fan softly replied.

Qing Shui smiled and hugged her, “Not bad. Little Fan Fan also knows how to speak words of such affection. I want to hear you calling me Brother Shui.”

“Brother Shui!”

Qing Shui trembled a little. Her voice was truly very nice to hear, making him feel very satisfied.

“Hehe...”  Beihuang Fan also started giggling when she saw Qing Shui’s reaction. Her bright eyes and beautiful teeth could be seen. This was the first time she had laughed so happily and truly. It was like the blossoming of a beautiful flower.

“Your beauty is so celestial-like, causing me to feel that you are someone who doesn’t exist in reality and will fly away to the nine heavens at any time,” Qing Shui sighed.

“You are always saying such sweet things,” Beihuang Fan smiled, she was really very happy at this moment.

“There’s no need for me to lie to you. Could it be that you wanted me to tell you that you are ugly instead? My skin might be thick but it isn’t thick enough for me to lie blatantly like that.”

“So you really do have a way with words. No wonder you have so many women.”

“Who said that I have many women?”

“You said it yourself. Don’t tell me, you really don’t have other women?” Beihuang Fan laughed as she spoke.

Cough cough. Let’s change the topic. How are things at the Taiqing Immortal Palace?” Qing Shui feigned ignorance and started to diverge from the conversation topic.

Beihuang Fan replied, “The Taiqing Immortal Palace is a very strong existence but Tai Dashao cannot escape the predestined fate of his generation. He is the only male heir remaining and if something were to happen to him, the line of descent for the Taiqing Clan will be finished. Tai Dashao’s strength isn’t very strong because his clan doesn’t dare to send him out to temper himself, fearing that he might die. He has never been in danger before.”

“Although this man is arrogant and despotic, his innate nature isn’t bad. Maybe his personality was shaped by his environment and he became nothing more than a tool used for child reproduction by his clan’s orders. Truth be told, he can be considered quite fortunate,” Qing Shui smiled.

“How can he not be fortunate, living such a relaxed life? Wouldn’t all guys love that?” Beihuang Fan curiously asked.

“Haha, you are right,” Qing Shui said and nodded.

The two of them returned to the Imperial Cuisine Hall. Right now, the hall itself had seemingly become a little nest for Qing Shui and Beihuang Fan. They both stayed at the same level and would have meals together and roam the streets for leisure. During the night, Qing Shui would cultivate and Beihuang Fan would refine the treasures for strengthening.

The days passed by peacefully. Qing Shui treated many patients and built up many connections. After all, the experts here were many in number. The most important thing was that Qing Shui had saved someone from a reclusive clan. As a reward, the clan told Qing Shui that if he ran into any trouble, they will help him out once.

This was truly a surprise. Even up till now, Qing Shui had no idea how strong this reclusive clan was. Because the other party was hiding in the shadows, Qing Shui had completely no information about them. However, he guessed that their strength should be even greater than the palace lord of the Blazing Fire Immortal Palace.

Right now in the Northern Emperor Domain, the Divine Palace and the Taiyi Immortal Palace were the strongest existences. This was especially so for the Divine Palace. The news of Qing Shui defeating the Blazing Fire Immortal Palace Palace Lord had made him and the Divine Palace’s fame grew even greater. After all, Qing Shui’s future was boundless.

Another news was regarding Qing Shui and Beihuang Fan. Beihuang Fan was the most beautiful woman in the entire Northern Emperor Domain and right now, this goddess was already seen as taken. Although she wasn’t married yet, the rumors said that she was already living together with Qing Shui. However, no one could verify the truth of this piece of info.

With regards to this, many people were sighing. Sadly, all of them knew that they had no hope and they all were harboring feelings of envy toward Qing Shui, instead of jealousy. This was because they understood that Beihuang Fan was at a level so high that they could never reach. This concept was like the loser fanboys of Qing Shui’s previous world, marveling at the beauty of the female idols, yet knowing that they would never be able to get together with them. When their idols changed boyfriend, they wouldn’t feel too strongly against that as they knew the probability of them being the boyfriend was even less, compared to stars falling down onto earth.
