Ancient Strengthening Technique Chapter 1028-1030
AST 1028 – State of One with Elephant, Nirvanic Fruit, Di Qing’s Appearance
Right now, Qing Shui’s and the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant’s State of One with Elephant could let him display an additional 30% of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant’s prowess. It was a pity that with the world’s regulations, he could only have about 400 stars of strength, despite that, this was still very good as it was. Moreover, the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant was now very agile and had many battle techniques which could be complemented with Qing Shui’s.
The Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant’s Instantaneous Dragon Elephant Evasion and speed were very high right now. Most importantly, it had a powerful scale armor which covered almost his entire body. Moreover, with the State of One with Elephant, Qing Shui had not only gained about 400 stars in strength, but even the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant had an increase in strength by 400 stars. It was because right now, he had become a single entity with the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant.
When Qing Shui used his Big Dipper Sword, with his doubled attacking prowess and the effect of Area Dominance, he could attack with a strength of 10,000 stars. Furthermore, when he used the State of One with Elephant, he could use the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant’s strength better.
Four Phases Formation. Qing Shui felt that it was a bit too hard to use this now since the opponents they had encountered were a little too strong.
When evening came, Qing Shui entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. He would improve every day, but at his level progress would be slow. After all, an increase in 1.5 stars was considered to be quite miserable for him. However, 1.5 stars was the strength of a Peak Martial Saint…
Qing Shui still prioritized the training of the Ancient Strengthening Technique. This was his foundation and he was now at the latter phase of the 7th Heavenly Layer. However, if he wished to attain a breakthrough to the 8th Heavenly Layer, it seemed that it would take quite a long time.
The Golden Pellet in his Dantian no longer increased in size, but was getting sturdier and firmer. Qing Shui knew that this meant that he could still grow stronger.
In the past, the Golden Pellet would get stronger bit by bit. It was when he was at the elementary phase of the 7th Heavenly Layer. When the Golden Pellet no longer grows any bigger, it would be at the intermediate phase and it would be considered to be in the later phase when it was completely firm and substantial, reaching the grand perfection stage for the 7th Heavenly Layer. It was then that he would have a chance to attain a breakthrough.
The Ancient Strengthening Technique tempered Qing Shui’s body to have a physique of a Nine Yang Marionette King, Nine Yang Buddha Body, and Extreme Yang Body. Qing Shui didn't know how the Extreme Yang Body was like, but it seemed to be very powerful.
After he cultivated one round of the Ancient Strengthening Technique, he would take a rest and walk around the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. It was because he required a training for his mind as well.
Qing Shui had used up a lot of the 1,000 Year plum blossoms in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal to brew the Plum Blossom Wine, which he had stock plenty of. This was also one of his interest in his free time, to brew wine!
Tiger Bone Liquor, Plum Blossom Wine, and the Pearl Wine. The Pearl Wine was made from the dew on the plum blossoms and some other medicinal herbs. Wine like these, which were made from dew drops, were even more precious and it brought Qing Shui an unexpected surprise.
It was just that the brewing process was very troublesome and the amount produced was very little. There were many varieties to Pearl Wine. In the past, Qing Shui thought that it could only be made using the dew from the pine branches which were 1,000 years or more. It seemed that he had thought too much into it.
It was just that the amount of dew was too little and it was troublesome to gather them. Therefore, Qing Shui didn’t have much Pearl Wine in stock right now. It was the one which he had the least amount and was quite precious.
He had also accumulated a large amount of spices, fruits and stuff like that. So every time he cooks, as long as it was not salty and not inedible, it would definitely be a great delicacy with the help of these spices.
On the other hand, after that flame-like grass had grown into a little tree, for all these years, it only produced a single fruit. The fruit was now the size of a fist and was green in color, with a glow around it.
The tree which was only half the height of a person had a fruit which was the size of a fist, it looked very strange. A fiery red little tree looked like a blaze of fire from afar, yet there was a single 'humongous' glowing green-colored fruit on it.
Right now, Qing Shui could see the description of this fruit, but it only had a name—Nirvanic Fruit. It had yet to mature.
Qing Shui was very sensitive to the words Nirvana. He knew that this was something good. The Fire Bird, or rather, the 'Black Bird' would still come and take a look at this fruit. He could sense the Fire Bird’s strong craving for it.
When he came out, the day was almost over. These days, the time at which Qing Shui entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal wasn’t fixed, but it was usually either the early half or the later half of the night.
After he left the realm, Qing Shui walked out. Most of the people from the Qing Clan had already gone to sleep. Of course, there were still some who were training. He stood by the window and looked at the night scenery outside. The window he was at was facing the most prosperous street and right now there were still many people along the streets, the night market had only just started.
“Mmm, Di Qing has left her door unlocked for me.”
Qing Shui had a smile on his face. It was hard for her to say that she had left her door unlocked for him. He went out from the window and headed towards Di Qing’s building. His speed was fast, like that of a ghost and within a few flashes he had appeared before her building. Even if someone was keeping a lookout, they wouldn’t be able to see his figure at all.
This building was very small and was suitable for two people. The first level was the hall which was about over 50 square meters, while the second level was the bedroom, washroom, and stuff.
As expected, the door to the hall was only closed and not locked. Qing Shui pushed open the door and entered. The light stones had lit up the place brightly. These silvery-white glowing stones were especially beautiful, at least to him. He lifted his head and saw the lady on the stairs. She was dressed in a snow-white colored nightgown and under the snow-white light, she appeared to be like a fairy from the moon palace. The wispy aura which kept people at bay was still strong as before, but right now Qing Shui felt that it added a hint of charm.
She had a beautiful figure. Both Di Chen and Di Qing didn't have those exaggerated curves, but their bodies were still the most beautiful, soft and exquisite, as if they were the work of the heavens. Her nightgown draped down below her knees and her snow-white lower thighs were straight and well-developed, which exuded a jade-like glow. Her bare feet were snow-white and exquisite. Qing Shui didn’t have a fetish for feet, but at this moment he had the strong urge to hold them and kiss them thoroughly.
Qing Shui rubbed his nose and closed the door to the hall. Suddenly, he felt that his heartbeat had become fast, which made him felt surprised. He gradually walked toward the stairs and went up right before Di Qing, he stood two steps lower than her.
It was when he got closer that did Qing Shui realized that Di Qing’s heartbeat was very fast. She was trying to force herself to remain calm. He took up her hand and said, “Beautiful!”
When she heard Qing Shui’s words, an intoxicating smile appeared on Di Qing’s face. She grabbed his hand tightly and led him upstairs. She liked the anxious feeling that she felt right now.
Qing Shui enjoyed the heartthrob he was experiencing now. Looking at the lady holding his hand who was like a fairy, he had a strong sense of satisfaction. Humans were easily moved by food and emotions. These two things held the greatest amount of importance in a person’s life.
Di Qing led Qing Shui hand by hand, as they went into the middle room and closed the door. This was a very small door and Qing Shui took off his shoes at the entrance. There was a snow-white rug.
There was a faint feminine fragrance in the room and the after fragrance of a bath coming from Di Qing. From the moment he saw Di Qing up to this point, she hadn’t said a single word and Qing Shui only spoke that one word on the stairs.
Qing Shui took Di Qing’s hand, sat by the bed and said with a smile, “Qing`er, let me tell you a joke.”
“Oh? What joke?” Di Qing didn’t know why Qing Shui was bringing up a joke at this moment, but she still asked softly.
“A turtle got hurt and got the snail to call for a physician. After two hours, the snail still hadn’t returned. The turtle felt anxious and scolded, ‘Damn it, if he still doesn’t come back, I’m dead meat!’ Just then, the snail’s voice rang out from outside the door, ‘Damn you, if you go on, I’m not going to go anymore!'”
Di Qing laughed out and the atmosphere wasn’t as tense as before. Qing Shui wanted to do enjoyable things in a lighthearted atmosphere.
“Let me tell you one more. It’s still about a turtle.” Qing Shui wrapped one of his hands around her slender waist and smiled, and said.
“Alright!” Di Qing leaned against Qing Shui and smiled. She felt very blissful and relaxed right now.
“Two turtles in heat went to have a date at the seaside. However, only the male turtle returned. Everyone asked why he came back alone? Where was the female turtle? The male turtle said, [We wanted to be more civilized today and do it in a pose like humans do. Therefore, she let me do her while she was lying back… Oh! It felt good! It was really a whole different feeling… If She hasn’t returned, it means she hasn’t managed to flip back over!]”
“Pffft, you rascal.” Di Qing smiled. She gave Qing Shui a light pound and chided her, her red blush making her appearance extremely seductive.
Qing Shui looked at that intoxicating beauty and flipped over, pressing her down against the soft bed as he teased, “Qing`er, we’re humans. Shall we try some other poses? You know, we caught that Triple-eyed Grass Green Frog. How about that pose?”
“Ahhh, you rascal! I forbid you to say things like that!” Di Qing turned flush red, as she looked at the man who was on top of her. Back then, the two mating Triple-eyed Grass Green Frogs they caught had scared her off in shame.
Qing Shui hugged her and turned so that both of them were lying next to each other, in each other’s arms as their noses touched together. Their faces were less than an inch away from one another and he could feel the fragrant breath when Di Qing exhaled.
Qing Shui reached his head forward and nibbled on those tender lips, sucking that pair of beautiful lips which was sweet like flowers. Her tender lips were softly bitten and tugged on.
Di Qing’s nose twitched slightly, as she let out a soft breathing sound. She was having butterflies in her stomach and had a feeling which she couldn’t begin to describe. Her arms unknowingly tightened themselves around Qing Shui’s neck.
“Little Qingqing, reach out your tongue.” Qing Shui let go of her beautiful lips and said softly.
“I don’t want…”
“You really don’t want to?” Qing Shui teased.
At this moment, Di Qing had opened her beautiful misty eyes and looked at Qing Shui anxiously. The pink blush on her cheeks tugged at Qing Shui’s heart.
“Really don’t want to…”
“Then I’ll take off your clothes and suck you here.” Qing Shui blinked and one of his hands grabbed her peaks.
Even if Di Qing knew what was going to happen today, she still felt anxious when Qing Shui said it out loud. Just as Qing Shui had reached out his hands to undo her clothes, she closed her eyes and stuck out her tender little tongue.
Qing Shui chuckled and gently sucked on a small portion of that beautiful tongue, sensing the woman’s slight tremble.
Unknowingly, Qing Shui’s hand had undone Di Qing’s clothes.
Di Qing knew, but in the process she had nervously grabbed Qing Shui’s hand twice. This was a subconscious move, and when Di Qing’s perfect body was displayed before Qing Shui, he was still stunned by how amazing the Creator was.
Qing Shui’s hand slowly explored her body, inch by inch…
The two of them entangled together all the way until daybreak before they calmed down. Di Qing curled up in Qing Shui’s arms, her tired face was also filled with extreme satisfaction. They both had a high level of cultivation and although this was Di Qing’s first time, the pain she felt was nothing. Moreover, Qing Shui had also given her a massage in the process…

AST 1029 – Devil Staff Technique, Meeting Little Fatty Again
After the engagement, Qing Shui had a beauty in his arms and was enjoying the warmth. Earlier, his strength had increased by 20 stars, while Di Qing's had grown by 30 stars.
Qing Shui once again cleared another Heavenly Meridian.
Another one of the Heavenly Meridians had been cleared, increasing Qing Shui's confidence in his assumption. He didn't even know what to think about everything. Was he really going to get all of the ladies in the Portraits of Beauty?
Qing Shui was stunned when he thought of this. Currently, he had already somehow encountered all of the ladies who were in the portraits which he possessed. He had even had that encounter with the lady in the crystal coffin. However, he had only known that she was one of the beauties in the portraits after their encounter.
One didn't necessarily need to be with the ladies in the Portraits of Beauty in order to clear his Heavenly Meridians. It could probably work with any woman who had a unique physique. Qing Shui had always felt that the twelve Portraits of Beauty weren't all-inclusive. However, those who were depicted by the portraits were definitely the cream of the crop.
Qing Shui had grown a lot stronger and had even gone all the way with Di Qing. However, he hadn’t impregnated Di Qing. Before he had lost his cool, he had told her about it.
Qing Shui planned for them to have kids only after they’d moved to the other four continents. It might be because she was embarrassed that Di Qing didn’t say much. She just hugged Qing Shui and nodded.
Di Qing was also a Martial Emperor and with the 30 star increase in physical strength, she was now at 260 stars.
She was quite astonished at this. Qing Shui only told her that this was due to their Duo Cultivation.
The earlier crazy and intoxicating scene made Qing Shui go into ecstasy. How many men had fallen to the beauty of women?. Beauty was a powerful, terrifying thing. If not for his strong willpower, he suspected that he would've drowned in beauty by now many times over.
They huddled together all the way until sunrise. Di Qing fell asleep, but Qing Shui stayed awake. He still wanted to proceed with his morning practice. Looking at the lady who had fallen asleep in satisfaction, he also felt very satisfied.
When it was time for their meals, Qing Shui didn’t let anyone disturb Di Qing. The other ladies all smiled and looked at Qing Shui. They had guessed what had happened and they knew that this day would eventually come.
The ladies didn’t find it strange. It was within their expectations for Di Qing to become Qing Shui’s woman. Moreover, there were still a few others outside. They seemed to have gradually gotten used to this life and even found it enjoyable.
It was late morning when Qing Shui headed out. He had already seen the black spots that were looming in the distance. There were over twenty of them.
Qing Shui frowned and walked out of the Qing Clan. He called out the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant and flew toward the black dots, which were getting increasingly bigger.
The Buddha Sect! It was still Buddha Sect. He saw the over 20 huge Swiftshadow Dragons in the distance, with people riding on them.
“Seems like there’s going to be a tough battle this time around!”
Qing Shui mumbled as he looked at the incoming people. With a glance, he could see the person heading the group and the Swiftshadow Dragon he was on. It was an old man who appeared fat, but had the strength and aura of an iron tower. He wasn’t fat, but was rather too strong, too big, and too tall. He didn’t show any signs of old age.
The most terrifying thing was his cultivation level. It made Qing Shui tense up as he immediately circulated his powers to the maximum. This old man was too strong.
State of One with Elephant!
This time around, Qing Shui didn’t show any hesitation in using his trump cards. It was only with these that he felt that he could go up against the opponents. He stared at the old man and the others.
The Diamond Reverend looked at the young man and, in that instant, his eyes filled with brilliant light as bright as the stars. Even his hands were trembling. He saw a young man who was comparable, or maybe even superior to his disciple.
“You guys have all lived very long lives, but you seem to be getting increasingly old-fashioned and inflexible. I don’t want to say much, but only wish to say one thing. You guys will regret this and there’s no medicine for regret which you can buy.” Qing Shui said calmly. To those old men, there was a strange feeling from his voice.
If not for the fact that Qing Shui had killed the Buddha Sect’s Ten Elders, they would've definitely found this to be a joke. However, they didn’t think it was funny now. They merely had a very strange feeling. This young man was as unfathomable as a complex puzzle.
“Young man, you’re really very strong, but there are some things that we have to do. It’s like what you’ve said, we might regret it. However, sometimes, people are unable to change despite knowing that they’ll regret their decision. Maybe people will only give in after even more people feel regret. Before that happens, nothing will change.” The Diamond Reverend frowned and said slowly.
Looking at the old man’s tall, tower-like figure, Qing Shui knew that what the old man had said was true. He didn’t know what status the old man held in the Buddha Sect, but it seemed that he couldn’t stop this from happening.
The Diamond Reverend could to some extent choose his actions, but in the Buddha Sect he was merely a strong expert, one of many. Moreover, since he had already agreed to it, he would need to live up to his words. He felt that the young man was very strong, but he didn’t think that his side would definitely end up on the losing end.
There were some things which one couldn’t afford to fail in. Failure would imply death. This was now that kind of situation!
Set up the formation!
The people behind the Diamond Reverend immediately stood in position, but they didn’t activate any attacks. The Diamond Reverend took a step forward, and a big staff that was as thick as an adult’s leg appeared in his hand. It was over three meters long. Right now, the Diamond Reverend lifted his head and looked toward Qing Shui.
“Young man, let’s start!” The Diamond Reverend looked to Qing Shui and said.
Qing Shui’s firm gaze locked onto the old man, and the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant let out a cry.
Vajra Subdues Demons!
Diamond Sword Qi!
Instantaneous Dragon Elephant Evasion!
Art of Pursuing!
Qing Shui completed all these in an instant and charged forward in the State of One with Elephant.
The huge sound caused Qing Shui to take a step back, while the other party remained unmoving. Qing Shui was astonished to see that the opponent’s physique and strength seemed very powerful and strong.
However, Qing Shui had already attained his goal. The Diamond Sword Qi and Art of Pursuing had caused his opponent’s speed to be greatly reduced. This was what he had wanted to achieve.
Nine Palace Steps, Nine Palace Confusion Steps!
Qing Shui, together with the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, flashed forward once again, attacking with a Sword of Sixth Wave using his Big Dipper Sword.
The Diamond Reverend’s countenance changed and the great staff in his hands was used to block Qing Shui’s Big Dipper Sword.
This time around, the Diamond Reverend retreated multiple steps while Qing Shui only took one step back.
Right now, the two were still checking each other out. Qing Shui knew the estimated strength of this old man, but he didn’t know if the old man had any trump cards up his sleeves.
The Diamond Reverend let out a huge bellow as he swung the huge staff. A stream of golden light flashed on his body and at the same time, Qing Shui could clearly sense that the negative effects he had applied on the old man had completely disappeared. That wasn’t all. The old man also seemed to have become stronger.
“Young man, try out my Devil Staff Technique!”
The huge staff exuded a bright golden light and in that moment, it seemed to be filled with spiritual intelligence. It then smashed down towards Qing Shui with the might of heaven and earth. Although it wasn’t fast, it seemed as if the huge staff was coming in from all directions.
Devil Staff Technique, First Stance, the World Changes!
It was spirit energy again!
Qing Shui shook his head. It seemed like after reaching this level, spirit energy was very important. However, their spirit energy seemed to be very weak compared to his and after having been weakened by another 70%, they posed no threat at all to him.
Qing Shui didn’t dodge, but just swung his Big Dipper Sword.
The long sword in Qing Shui’s hand, which appeared to be three feet long, now seemed as if it was tens of millions of jin heavy. It slowly moved to receive the attack from the huge golden colored staff.
Countering heavy with light！
A deep sound rang out and a gray colored wave of essence was sent outward, centered on the pair's location. Even the air exploded. Both Qing Shui and the old man took one step back.
After having spent a night with Di Qing, Qing Shui’s improvement in his cultivation was quite high. It was a pity that, due to the world’s regulations, the actual increase to his strength was not a lot. However, having one of his heavenly meridians cleared gave Qing Shui a mysterious feeling. His spirit energy was condensed and the realm of his spirit energy cultivation had also increased. It was a very amazing feeling.
The old man’s eyes gleamed, as he once again took a huge step forward pushing down with his huge staff. This time around, he was more than twice as fast as before.
Devil Staff Technique, Second Stance, Crush Mountains and Rivers!
Qing Shui could feel how powerful this attack was. He fiercely counterattacked with his Big Dipper Sword.
Sword of Sixth Wave!
A series of explosions rang out and Qing Shui retreated another step back. The old man was also pushed back. This time around, Qing Shui knew that it was the effect of Shield Attack.
The Diamond Reverend was extremely surprised. He knew his own abilities well and it was an eye-opener to see a young man have such great achievements at his age. At the same time his will to battle surged.
He slowly started to spin his staff, and the pressure it exuded progressively grew as a stream of brilliant golden light was sent out. A golden pillar of light gradually encompassed the old man.
Qing Shui looked at the old man’s inner aura and moved his sword to his left hand as he grabbed the Violet Star Thunder God with his right.
Nine Palace Steps, Nine Palace Heaven Defying Stomp!
Qing Shui stood on top of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, making quick steps as he charged out towards the old man who stood like an iron tower.
At this moment, the huge staff came down with an overwhelming pressure. Qing Shui’s eyes were wide open.
Devil Staff Technique, Third Stance, Splitting the Heavens!
Ten Thousand Great Thunderbolt!
At this moment, Qing Shui didn’t even think of trying to use the Big Dipper Sword and its 20% success rate. It was more practical to use the Violet Star Thunder God’s Raging Blow.
Moreover, what Qing Shui wanted was the Ten Thousand Great Thunderbolt!
With a strong push, Qing Shui disappeared from the back of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. With a flash, he appeared behind the old man using his Nine Palace Steps. He then smashed the Violet Star Thunder God toward the old man’s head.
Everything happened in only an instant.
At that moment, a golden colored hand imprint encompassed the old man and Qing Shui’s Violet Star Thunder God smashed down on it. Although he smashed the imprint, the temporary paralyzing effect on the old man had also disappeared.
Spirit energy battle technique. It was spirit energy yet again.
Qing Shui shook his head and looked at the person who had performed that technique with the gold hand imprint. It was an old man who appeared to be extremely skinny. The monk robes he was wearing appeared to be very large on him.
He was exuding powerful spirit energy waves. However, Qing Shui’s gaze landed on the person next to him. It was a young “giant” who was a good fight for the old man from earlier. He also had a body that was like an iron tower, and he exuded a violent strength. Right now, the young man was looking at him as if fire was spewing out from his eyes. However, his gaze changed very quickly.
Qing Shui was also extremely astonished. It was Little Fatty. His face hadn’t changed much. It was the Little Fatty he had once brought back home with him. After having stayed at the Qing Clan for some time, Qing Shui was told that he had left with a monk of great stature.

AST 1030 – Evil Monk Little Fatty, Condition, Little Fatty's Status
Although many years had passed, Qing Shui could still recognize Little Fatty very quickly. He hadn’t changed a lot, but he had grown taller. Most importantly, his fats from the past had now become sturdy muscles, which were like iron.
“You’re Little Fatty?!” Qing Shui looked at Little Fatty and asked. There was a hint of weirdness in his tone. To think that the Little Fatty who admired him and was a little slow would become someone with such a high level of cultivation.
“Ahh! Brother Qing Shui, you are Brother Qing Shui!” Little Fatty dashed over excitedly.
Everyone was stunned. Everything had happened too suddenly and no one knew what the situation was. To think that the Evil Monk was addressing Qing Shui as his brother…
Although Little Fatty and the Diamond Reverend were in Diamond Sect, their explosive increase in cultivation had made others address them as Evil Monk. However, Little Fatty had little experience in the outside world. He had spent his years in cultivation. Of course, he would also take part in battles and such. Evil Monk was a name which he had made for himself in those fights.
“You’re really Little Fatty!” Qing Shui was still extremely astonished. He looked at the giant standing next to him and he felt especially happy as well.
He had expected that he would meet Little Fatty again one day, especially since that message left with the Qing Clan stated that Little Fatty had left with an expert from the Buddha Sect, saying that Little Fatty had an affinity with Buddha.
It seemed like that had been the case as well. Back then, Qing Shui only felt that Little Fatty was born with great strength and he hadn’t expected that he would be able to have such great achievements in less than 20 years.
“Brother Qing Shui, it’s really me. I’m Little Fatty! I haven’t had the chance to go look for Brother Qing Shui. Qing Clan is where my home truly is!” The eyes of the gigantic Little Fatty brimmed with tears of joy when he saw Qing Shui. To him, Qing Shui and the Qing Clan were his family.
He had his Master as well, but he had always thought of the Qing Clan as his real home. He had always remembered the days he had spent back in the Qing Clan. His life was given to him by Qing Shui, who had cured him of his illness.
“You’re really in Buddha Sect. Back then, I heard that you left willingly with a monk who said that you have an affinity with Buddha. It seems like your decision to leave Qing Clan back then was the correct one.” Qing Shui was very happy to see that Little Fatty had reached the cultivation he had today.
“Brother Qing Shui, I’m still that Little Fatty. I’ll never change. I didn’t know that the opponent that we’re dealing with today is Brother Qing Shui. With Little Fatty here, whoever wants to deal with Brother Qing Shui must step over my corpse!” Little Fatty didn’t care about the situation and made his stance very clear.
His declaration stunned everyone once again. The Buddha Sect was very powerful and had many geniuses. However, Little Fatty could definitely be considered one of the best in Buddha Sect for his generation. A person with his talent and power might not even appear once amongst a billion people at his age. And right now, two such people had appeared together at the same time. This left everyone with an indescribable sense of bitterness, especially Diamond Reverend.
The others looked at Little Fatty and then at the Diamond Reverend.
Little Fatty’s actions were traitorous and blatantly challenged the Buddha Sect’s authority. The others looked at the Diamond Reverend, wondering how he would handle the situation. Little Fatty was his one and only disciple after all. He was also the one who that Diamond Reverend was the proudest of.
“Little Fatty!” The Diamond Reverend called out.
Qing Shui hadn’t expected that the Diamond Reverend would also address Little Fatty like that. What he didn’t know was that only Little Fatty’s Master could call him that. Moreover, Little Fatty had a high level of seniority. The others would openly address him as Martial Granduncle or Martial Uncle and other things like that but behind his back, they would call him Evil Monk.
Little Fatty turned around to look at Diamond Reverend, then at Qing Shui. He fell silent for a moment before he lifted his head to look at the Diamond Reverend, “Master, back then, when I left with you, you promised me that I’d be able to leave with the Qing Clan anytime. You’d also promised me that if the Qing Clan were to be in any trouble, you’d help them out.”
The Diamond Reverend was stunned. Back then, in order to get Little Fatty leave with him, he had promised him a few conditions. Out of them there were those two, 'If Little Fatty were to want to return to the Qing Clan one day, he cannot stop him' and 'If the Qing Clan is in trouble, he’ll have to help them'. However, he hadn’t expected that the one the Buddha Sect ended up against would be the Qing Clan.
The Diamond Reverend had not paid much attention to the things happening in the outside world. Moreover, they were in Central Continent. Even if he were to hear of a young man by the name of Qing Shui, he wouldn’t have expected that the person hailed from Greencloud Continent. Even if he were to come from Greencloud Continent, the Diamond Reverend hadn’t expected that he would be from the Qing Clan that Little Fatty had mentioned. He knew of the Qing Clan’s abilities back then. It was impossible for a young man who could kill ten people from the Elder Association to appear amidst this group.
However, it had happened and it was really that Qing Clan. He, the Diamond Reverend, had always been a man of his words. The chances of something like this happening was practically zero, but it had happened.
Hearing Little Fatty’s words, Qing Shui was stunned. He hadn’t expected that Little Fatty still had the Qing Clan in his heart and even came up with a few conditions that were advantageous for the Qing Clan before he left. Although Buddha Sect had never helped the Qing Clan, this was a representation of Little Fatty’s feelings.
“Brother Qing Shui, before you left, you’ve said that Little Fatty must repay whoever treats me well, even at the risk of my life.”
Little Fatty’s words caused everyone to fall silent. Evil Monk’s reputation in Buddha Sect was quite famous and he was a top performer amongst the younger generation. Even the other powerful youngsters in Buddha Sect were far inferior to him.
At that moment, Diamond Reverend bowed to an old man who was extremely skinny.
“Hahaha, young man, you’re very strong. Has anyone told you that your physique is very unique and that you have an affinity with Buddha?” The old man suddenly smiled and said something which perplexed everyone.
“Someone said that I’m suitable to be refined into the Nine Yang Marionette King, but that person was killed by me.” Qing Shui smiled and looked at the old man.
The old man’s expression didn’t change. Of course, he knew what Qing Shui was implying. He hesitated, “Young man, you wish to take Little Fatty with you?”
Qing Shui was stunned for a moment before he broke out into a smile. He knew what the Buddha Sect was worrying about. Although they had lost ten of their Elders, it was only one from each branch. They could still afford this loss. Of course, this old man who enjoyed a very high status in Buddha Sect did not think too much of this loss either. Right now, what they were most worried about was potentially losing a great talent like Little Fatty.
“Brother Qing Shui, I had actually been missing you guys. Even if this thing hadn’t happened, I would also go and look for you guys,” Little Fatty said with strong determination.
“Then what about your Master?” Qing Shui smiled and asked.
“Master has been very good to me. He’ll forever be my Master. I’ll come and visit him when I’m free.”
“Little Fatty…” The Diamond Reverend called out to Little Fatty with a complex tone.
“Little Fatty, if you were to stay in the Buddha Sect, I’ll leave my position to you in the future,” the skinny old man gave it some thought before he calmly said.
This caused everyone in Buddha Sect to freeze. What status did this old man hold? He was the Supreme Grand Elder in the entire Buddha Sect! Everyone, regardless of their branch, would have to call him Old Ancestor.
Just as Little Fatty was about to say something, the old man put up his hand and said, “Little Fatty, there’s no need for you to hurry to reject me. This is just a position in name. You’ll have to help out the Buddha Sect when it is in trouble. Of course, on other days, you can order all nine branches of the Buddha Sect without any conditions. No one in Buddha Sect will be able to restrict your freedom. You can do anything you want.”
When the old man said this, he wasn’t looking at Little Fatty but instead at Qing Shui. His gaze had never left Qing Shui from the beginning. Being as shrewd as he was, he could obviously tell how special Qing Shui was and how much Little Fatty listens to him.
Little Fatty didn’t say anything. Many years had passed and Qing Shui also realized that Little Fatty was a lot different than before. Although he was still a little straightforward and honest, there was spiritual intelligence in his eyes.
“Sir, now that things have come down to this, let’s lay out the conditions first. We’ll forget about the things today, and I’ll agree to your conditions on Little Fatty’s behalf. However, you guys must give Huoyun Peng his freedom,” Qing Shui looked at the old man and said firmly.
“Haha, we can forget about the things that had happened today. We’ll just take it that we are even now that Little Fatty has agreed. If you wish to free Huoyun Peng, that it isn’t impossible. If Huoyun Peng were to leave the Buddha Sect, he’ll not be related to the Buddha Sect anymore and will not be considered one of us. Of course, the prerequisite is that you must defeat me.” When the old man spoke, he did so very calmly.
Qing Shui wasn’t stupid and knew what the old man’s intentions were. If he were to lose, he’ll just lose his life. Buddha Sect will retain their good reputation and Little Fatty might still stay in the sect when all was said and done. It was because Diamond Reverend had treated him very well and since so much time had passed, anything could happen. Even if he were to lose, the ending would still be good. Little Fatty was a person of his words and with his name in the Buddha Sect, the sect would not have any worries. Moreover, the old man himself would still remain as a silent supporter. If Little Fatty wasn’t able to fend off the troubles, he wouldn’t just watch from the sidelines. Therefore, no matter what, the old man would be the one winning.
“Haha, I promise you. But I must say this first, I won’t be going easy on you. If any accidents were to happen, it wouldn’t be something I can control,” Qing Shui smiled and said. Nonetheless, the old man could sense a hint of coldness in his smiling eyes.
“That’s a matter of course. I won’t be going easy on you either!” With that, the old man flew 1,000 meters higher.
Qing Shui rode his Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant and moved upward. This time around, he didn’t dare to be careless. Although Qing Shui had won in the battle against Diamond Reverend, he had already used up his Area Dominance.
Right now, Qing Shui wasn’t very worried. He knew that the old man specialized in spirit energy, something which Qing Shui had the least interest in. Therefore, Qing Shui stored his Violet Star Thunder God.
“Let’s start!” The old man looked at Qing Shui and smiled. He then took out a five-colored cane which was only about three feet long.
What a good item!
Qing Shui exclaimed to himself. This was a cane forged from the Five-Colored Stone which seemed to be of a higher quality than the Violet Jade and meteorite. It was especially powerful in raising one’s spirit energy and specialized in attacks using one’s spirit energy.
There weren’t many things which could increase one’s spirit energy or spirit energy attacks. Therefore, the Five-Colored Stone was especially precious.
Hearing the old man’s words, Qing Shui didn’t say anything and threw out a Descending Heavens Talisman toward the old man!
Qing Shui was stunned. This would mean that this old man only had a strength of 8,000 stars. While this was a monstrous level, it seemed as if he shouldn’t only be at this level.
Qing Shui guessed that his opponent probably had not used some of his martial techniques, just like Qing Shui himself.
The old man waved his short cane and a huge image appeared around him, one that was like a lion. However, it could be seen very clearly and it encompassed the old man.
