AST 2369 - Ancient Terrestrial Tarantula King, Emperor Beast?

The sound made by the Ancient Terrestrial Tarantula King was akin to that of a terrified person walking alone in a cemetery, being scared by any movement around him.

It was dark in the cave which affected Qing Shui and the two women’s vision slightly, but they were still able to see. Moreover, Qing Shui’s Heavenly Vision Technique had been activated so daytime and nighttime were the same to him. 

It was a black armored Spider. It had a gigantic body extending up to a few hundred meters long, almost as thick as the whole cave’s passageway. Its black armor was as hard as iron and filled with sharp thorns, just like a hedgehog. 

Its massive, tower-sized dark red eyes gave off a frightening glow, with its limbs completely wrapped in armor.

A fully armored spider. This was the first time Qing Shui had seen such an amazing creature.

As expected of the Ancient Terrestrial Tarantula King, without even looking at the oppressiveness of its poison, its bodily strength was not to be underestimated. It was also immune to all poisons by default.

Zhi Zhi!

The scary sound rang again, but closer this time. Qing Shui attacked with his Primordial Demon Refining Furnace immediately. 

The Primordial Demon Refining Furnace, in no time, became hill-sized as it flew out.

Zhi Zhi!


A huge explosion rang together with a piercing scream. The Primordial Demon Refining Furnace flew back into Qing Shui’s hands. The Tarantula King didn’t even take any damage. It seemed like it was a little restless, but it was slowly calming down.

“Looking for death!” A deep but ear piercing voice could be heard.  

“Wow, you can actually speak.” 

Qing Shui was surprised. To be honest, at this strength, it would be considered as an older beast, with intelligence comparable to normal humans. However, despite their intelligence, its heaven-defying body ensured that there were Heavenly Dao laws prohibiting them from using divine weapons.

“You can go and die now since the thing in your hand is just for scaring people,” The Tarantula King feared the thing in Qing Shui’s hand the most. He knew that mankind possessed many treasures, all of them with extremely strange uses. Although he was extremely wary of the thing Qing Shui held, it didn’t hurt when they collided so it might just be used for bluffing.

The Ancient Terrestrial Tarantula King’s body began emitting black smog as its massive body slowly transformed into a humongous ball, quickly cornering Qing Shui. Black water also began to charge forward, attempting to overwhelm him.

Qing Shui really wanted to curse out loud. This fella had actually used such a dirty tactic, forcing him to bring out his Area Dominance. 

Heavenly Vision Technique!

Art of Pursuing!

Emperor's Qi! 

Qing Shui carried the two women and went straight for the attack with Stellar Transposition after slowing down the opponent significantly. 


Zhi Zhi!

The Tarantula King produced yet another ear-piercing scream. It seemed to be suffering from horrific pain. Qing Shui’s attack was cruel enough. Although the Tarantula King had a scary black armor, its actual flesh was quite weak. The Stellar Transposition ignored defenses and simply shattered its internal organs.

Qing Shui obviously did not expect this but his Heavenly Vision Technique could observe that its internal viscera had been completely destroyed.

Qing Shui was finally calming down. He had prepared many killer moves initially, but it seemed like they were unnecessary.

“Human, you won’t be able to leave this place alive if you kill me. I am the offspring of the Ancient Terrestrial Tarantula Emperor,” The Tarantula King said to Qing Shui.

Ancient Terrestrial Tarantula Emperor? Qing Shui thought carefully. Although he did not know anything about it, he understood that those which could be granted the Ancient Emperor title were all demonic beasts that had reached a terrifying level.

“The divine area seems boundless. It is still unclear whether there is an Ancient Terrestrial Tarantula Emperor, and even if it was the case, it isn’t here right now. It can’t do anything to me after I leave the divine area. Moreover, I know what to do even if it dares to come.” Qing Shui looked at the Tarantula King and laughed. 

Qing Shui’s laugh was mortifying for the spider. It had never thought that it would meet someone like Qing Shui. Even its powerful outer shell and toxin were pointless before him. He couldn’t accept this result, but he had no choices left.

“Don’t force my hand. Even though I may not be worthy as your opponent, I can still kill one of the people beside you if I try.” It wasn’t any dumber than humans, and it understood that there was no room for negotiation. It could only try to escape.

“Are you trying to flee now? The stone walls around you are probably nothing but you can try and see if you can still break through the stone wall now.” Qing Shui had already used the Nine Palace Laws to seal this whole place. 

Qing Shui’s seal had restrained the Five Elements. This big spider specialized in the Earth Element. A King spider would be able to traverse these rocks like a fish in water, but within the seal, it could only break apart these stones with brute force, and simply couldn’t escape.

The big spider tried to sink its body into the stones and soon realized that it was futile. It was truly starting to be terrified. The threatening words he said just now were only meant to lower Qing Shui’s guard. He felt that this whole place was his world and he would be able to escape no matter what.

“It’s over!” 

Qing Shui looked at the time and followed up with a Stellar Transposition.


Zhi Zhi!

Although the hits were not able to kill the Tarantula King, they were enough to cause the spider to be severely injured. Qing Shui took out his Primordial Demon Refining Furnace right away and sucked in the Tarantula King before throwing it back into the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.

Just as Qing Shui was about to leave with the two women, he said: “Actually, we should go check out his lair. Maybe he has some goodies.”

The two women laughed and nodded. Treasures were appealing to everyone.

There was a very wide area after walking further into the cave’s passageway. This was a gigantic underground cave. Qing Shui felt that it was ridiculously massive.

“Erm, there are so many eggs (referring to testicles) here!” Beihuang Fan said as she pointed to a place not far away. 

Qing Shui glanced her way and laughed. Beihuang Fan noticed that Qing Shui was looking at her and thought about what she said just now, then looked at Qing Shui’s playful smile. Her entire face immediately turned red. The pinkish white neck flushed entirely pink, making it charming beyond belief.

“You are a real bastard, aren’t you? Those are spider eggs. What are you thinking about?” Beihuang Fan howled angrily.  

“Fanfan, I didn't say anything. You are really becoming more and more naughty and perverted nowadays, but I like it.” Qing Shui laughed. 

“You are the one who is naughty and perverted, bastard…” Beihuang Fan was extremely embarrassed, but she calmed down after speaking and extended her hand to pinch Qing Shui’s ear. 

Shen Huang smiled at one side. She was very happy. Looking at these scenes reminded her of the times that she and Qing Shui enjoyed together.

“Fine. Let’s go and take a look at those eggs, ma’am.” 

Beihuang Fan did not exert any force so it didn’t hurt. Beihuang Fan let go unhappily after hearing Qing Shui. They were officially a thing. Qing Shui had teased them countless times, but he still enjoyed doing so till today.
