AST 981 – A Single Smile Would Overthrow A City, The Next Would Overthrow An Entire Country

The next day!

Qing Shui bid goodbye to his family since he had some business to attend to. He allowed the members of the Qing Clan to choose to stay for two days, or go back to the Heavenly Palace if they preferred. In any case, he would go home soon when he was done with his matters.

The others didn't say anything special but asked him to come home as soon as possible. Qing Shui turned towards Yiye Jiange and Luan Luan and said, "I'm going to the Skysword Sect, do you want to come?"

"Yes, I want to go. I miss that place so much, it's been a long while." Luan Luan replied happily.

Yiye Jiange was stunned for a moment, but nodded her head. She glanced towards Qing Shui suspiciously, which caused him to develop a guilty conscience. He wasn't sure whether Yiye Jiange knew about his relationship with Zhu Qing or not.

If he didn't do anything wrong, he wouldn't have felt the way he did just now. Because of his guilty conscience, he evaded her gaze entirely without batting an eyelid. Di Qing didn't feel like joining, so the three of them mounted their flying beasts and flew directly from the Yan City towards Cang Lang Country.

Even though Canghai Mingyue and Huoyun Liu-Li could go back and visit the 'Earthly Paradise' in the Cang Lang Country, they couldn't leave the Qing Clan at the moment. They decided to go back when the time was right, and asked Qing Shui to drop by there on his way to the Skysword Sect.

Qing Shui smiled and nodded in agreement. Then he faced his family and waved goodbye.

Luan Luan had her own flying beast, so she winked at Qing Shui to mount on his own with Yiye Jiange so that they could spend more time together. Qing Shui rubbed his nose and smiled, then he pulled Yiye Jiange onto the Fire Bird, causing her to smile in defeat after turning to look at the silent teasing exchange between the man on her side and Luan Luan.

She knew she was the same as Luan Luan – both of them sought comfort in each other mentally. Even though Luan Luan had the same attitude when she was with Qing Shui, like a relationship between a father and a daughter, nothing had changed since then. But she knew the truth in her heart, and that explained everything Yiye Jiange had been doing for the past few years. Her relationship with Qing Shui was unnatural, but there was nothing she could do to wear away the awkwardness between them.

Qing Shui felt helpless as well. He had pretended to be husband and wife with Yiye Jiange because of that same reason. Now that Luan Luan understood their situation, there was no need for the charade anymore.

However, Yiye Jiange knew about the things that Luan Luan had said to Qing Shui, and she didn't know what to feel about it. She had been carrying the blood burden on her shoulders ever since she had lost everything in her life, so the thought of marriage had never clicked in her mind. Yiye Jiange had closed off her heart, pushing away those who tried to unlock her true self.

She always felt that her life was a series of torment and suffering. Her childhood was bright and happy, living as an heiress to the large and famous Ye Clan. That was until the sudden loss of everything and everyone in her life. It was during this loss that the memories of her childhood had become the most precious thing to her, but nothing could bring back the happier times when everything had faded into the past. Whenever she recalled those memories, her heart would break until she felt numb. No one could understand her suffering. There were many times that she considered suicide as an option, but she couldn't bring herself to do it. Her memory of her parents sacrificing themselves so that she and her brother could live prevented her from attempting to suicide several times. Even if she were to become a living corpse, she would have to live on in this world.

Even so, she had thought about marrying to a man of great power so that she could use that power to exact her revenge. Yiye Jiange knew that she was attractive in appearance, but to find a man who could go against the mighty forces of the Lion King's Ridge was almost impossible. Moreover, the stronger a man becomes, the more strenuous his duties to his family would be. No one would allocate any resources or time to declare a war against a supreme sect for the sake of a woman.

Eventually, she started to let go of her thoughts of revenge and bottled her hatred inside her heart along with the basic needs of relationship and romance. That one time in the Hundred Miles City was to prevent someone else from becoming a person like her.

However, she hadn't expected that one day she would ultimately seal her destiny with that young man. He was her friend, at least. Perhaps even a good friend, but that was about it.

But what caught her by surprise was that the man she had saved had reached a transcending growth all by himself, and he was able to bring back her brother's daughter to her. Yiye Jiange actually trusted him and told him her deepest secret. It was quite unbelievable when she recalled those moments she had with him.

At this moment, he reached out and held her hand, but she didn't feel uncomfortable from their skinship, nor did she reject his touch. Her current attitude towards the situation was a shock to herself, because she even felt a slight relief when her hand was clasped by his. She turned towards the man who was smiling just for her. He was a man who was younger than her, and a man whom she had treated as a junior. She wouldn't have accepted him as her pupil if she didn't see him that way, but things had changed since then. Their relationship had become more complicated, and she was even a bit confused at their current standpoint.

He was gazing at her eyes that were filled with reluctance, linger, and pity…… And she suddenly felt nervous from his gaze. Yiye Jiange swiveled her head away slowly, feeling the increased throbbing in her heart. She was unsure about her feelings at this moment.

However, she knew one thing for sure – she was touched by his feelings!

This was the first time that she had a clear understanding of her own feelings. Perhaps this was also the moment she finally noticed that she really needed a man who was capable of loving her, but Yiye Jiange thought otherwise and quickly dispersed this thought.

She may have felt this way before, but she didn't want to risk Qing Shui and make him bet his life against a powerful sect. She looked down again to see that her hand was still being held tightly by this man, and because of that, she raised her head towards him and gave him a smile.

A single smile would overthrow a city, the next would overthrow an entire country!

"At first glance, soldiers will lose their town; at second glance, a monarch will lose his crown!" Qing Shui continued to glance at Yiye Jiange, who was startled by his sudden outburst.

"Will you become my wife one day?" Qing Shui asked with a smile.

Yiye Jiange looked at Qing Shui bewilderedly as she couldn't catch his meaning. Nevertheless, she smiled at him and said, "You have so many wives by your side. There's no difference if I become your wife or not."

"I knew you would say that. I know, I should have been satisfied to even have one wife by my side. But I did not force them to be with me, and I like them all so…." Qing Shui became awkward as he looked at Yiye Jiange besides him.

"So you are the same. The stronger you are, the greater your desire to monopolize women will become. In the past, you might have been satisfied with just one of them as your wife, but that's because you weren't strong yet. As you've grown stronger, your desire became greater too."

When he heard the words coming out from her mouth, Qing Shui was stunned. Her words were true for the most part, but he had never felt that he had betrayed his conscience in the slightest. Those who became his wife were the ones he really liked. But those he never had feelings for wouldn't become his lover, much less a wife, like Xiang Bao from Xiang Clan and Gongsun Jianwu from Gongsun Clan.

"Jiange, do you wish to have a man who would only love one woman?" Qing Shui chuckled.

It was rare enough for Yiye Jiange to shoot a contemptuous look at Qing Shui, which was why he became a bit timid when he saw her eyes. Regardless, he gripped her hand tighter in an attempt to appease her angry emotion.

"No woman would want to share their husband with another woman. People are selfish creatures. Just like treasures – no matter how many treasures appear in front of you, you will have one favorite treasure even though you might like all of them. Most importantly, your taste in treasures will change, and so your favorite treasure may become something else." Yiye Jiange revealed a soft smile as she glanced at Qing Shui.

Qing Shui, on the other hand, was looking at Yiye Jiange dumbfoundedly. Her words now made sense, and it was easy to understand how that logic came to be. But her reasoning could apply to other people as well, just like those people in his past life who had mistresses behind their wives. They would find new women and dump their old romance. Qing Shui reflected on himself and asked which one among his wives he loved the most…..

When Yiye Jiange saw Qing Shui silently pondering over something, she shook his hand intentionally to break him away from his thoughts. Qing Shui raised his head and looked at her. He smiled when he saw an apologetic smile appearing in the corner of her mouth.

"I'm not trying to lecture you or anything. This kind of situation is common you know…."

"I know. I understand what you're saying. But you still haven't answered my question yet." Qing Shui felt relieved when she explained her words. Once they opened up and communicated with each other, a lot of things were cleared up in an instant.

"I really don't know. I've never thought about it actually. If I have feelings for a man, I don't think I'll fuss over that too much. How do you think your wives are able to become sisters and live peacefully with each other?" Yiye Jiange smiled.

"Then what about Jiange's feelings towards me….." Qing Shui asked boldly, yet with a slight hint of awkwardness in his query.

Yiye Jiange raised up her hand that Qing Shui had been holding and said, "I have feelings for you – a feeling that you are a rascal."

As soon as she finished her sentence, she revealed a cheerful smile, which prompted Qing Shui to do the same. He understood her meaning a little, and the fact that he could still hold her hand hinted at her feelings towards him. Of course, there was still a chance that she actually meant the matters concerning the Lion King's Ridge, but that was just his guess as she didn't say her intentions directly.

"If you marry someone else, I will probably vomit blood thinking about how that man will hold you in his arms." Qing Shui said nonchalantly after thinking about a lot of things.

"What nonsense are you thinking about…." Yiye Jiange raised her hand and knocked on his head after listening to the gibberish coming out from his mouth.

Qing Shui took the chance and held Yiye Jiange softly. "Don't move. I just want to hold you. I'm not thinking of other stuff in case you're wondering."

Yiye Jiange felt helpless and proceeded to hold his neck softly. She knew that her fate would be entangled with this man forever, but she didn't want her fate to end up like that. When he promised to take her to the Lion King's Ridge in three years time, she felt grateful, but she would never let him come along and risk his life for her.

"Qing Shui, did you go and visit Elder Sister Shi?"

Qing Shui was startled and replied, "You knew about it already!"

"I wasn't sure about it! Can you explain a bit? Elder Sister Shi is also a woman with a pitiful past. She doesn't have a family in this world anymore." Yiye Jiange said calmly.

Qing Shui had no choice but to explain everything from the beginning, with the omission of Zhu Qing and the woman she liked before. He even told her about the time he was 'drugged' with sexual enhancing medicine and how he ended up being with her. After that she became sick, which Yiye Jiange was present at that time, so she knew about that stuff already.

"I support you and Elder Sister Shi being together." Yiye Jiange said in a soft tone as she inched closer to his ear.

Her warm breath tingled his ear, causing him to cast his focus towards her delicate earlobe. Their lips almost touched each other when he turned to look at her. Then he asked her, "How about you?"

Yiye Jiange jolted for a moment and pushed Qing Shui away. Her face was slightly red as she replied, "I'm never going to marry to anyone. I will never marry!"

Qing Shui rubbed his nose. This was the first time she had shown such a big reaction to him. It seemed like the only way for her to open her heart completely to him would be to settle the matters with the Lion King's Ridge first.

……..

The distance between Yan Jiang Country and Cang Lang Country wasn't that far, but they could reach their destination in no time due to the increased speed of their flying mounts. Luan Luan's 'Little Bai' had grown stronger as well, gaining a speed multiple times faster than before.

Not only did Luan Luan gain a surge of power to her abilities, her demonic beasts had also become stronger as well. However, she did not plan on taking more demonic beasts or look for stronger ones until she became an Early Martial Emperor. Besides cultivating her martial techniques, she would also spend most of her time cultivating her spiritual energy.

In a few moments, they could see the border of the Cang Lang Country appearing on the horizon. When Yiye Jiange had recovered her composure. She looked at Qing Shui naturally and said, "You seem to like women who are older than you.

"Cough cough…."

"Don't get so worked up!" Yiye Jiange said quickly when she saw an exaggerated reaction from Qing Shui.

"Sister, so you knew about it all along….."

Yiye Jiange was speechless. She stared at him for the longest time until he felt uncomfortable and gave a quick reply: "I like women who are a bit mature, like Jiange, for example……"

She curled a smile and kept staring at him without saying a word. Qing Shui gave up and shut his mouth, vowing to never tell her anything embarrassing ever again. He could not explain himself too well either. In any case, they were getting closer to the Skysword Sect, the structure of the building was becoming clearer in their line of sight.

After stopping halfway up the peak for a while, they continued towards the upper mountain. When they finally reached the peak of the mountain, Baili Jingwei and his companions were already waiting for their arrival. Qing Shui took a good look at the people surrounding Baili Jingwei, but Zhu Qing was nowhere to be seen.

"Old man!" Qing Shui smiled and went closer to greet Baili Jingwei.

"Haha, I'm so happy to see you all again, Qing Shui, Jiange, um…. This must be Luan Luan. She has grown up into a fine lady." Baili Jingwei was especially delighted. The others followed and greeted the three of them as well.

Yiye Jiange felt very happy looking at these familiar people in the Skysword Sect. This place brought an endless happiness to her, at least more than what the Heavenly Palace could provide her. The Skysword Sect was somewhat special – this was like her home.

AST 982 – The Blissful Zhu Qing, Lovers Who Are Finally United By Marriage

They hadn’t met for very long, but they were very close, and they were almost as close as kin. At least, to Qing Shui, Baili Jingwei was very important. No matter what, both Qing Shui and Qing Clan were indebted to Baili Jingwei. Additionally, to Yiye Jiange, this relationship was priceless. They would never be able to repay them.

Everyone chatted and Qing Shui handed Baili Jingwei an Interspatial Silk Sachet, and said while smiling, “There are things in there which you guys need here and there is also some stuff for Wufeng as well.”

Baili Wufeng was Baili Jingwei’s one and only grandchild, his closest kin. However, the others were also his Martial Brothers and were like his real brothers. Zhu Qing was their Martial Sister and Yiye Jiange was the last one who had joined the ranks.

“Qing Shui, there’s no need to stand on ceremony,” Baili Jingwei said as he looked at the Interspatial Silk Sachet.

Although this Interspatial Silk Sachet was nothing to Qing Shui, those who were below the Martial Saint level would basically be unable to possess one, unless they came from aristocrat or major clans. Thinking about this, Qing Shui took out a few more Interspatial Silk Sachets and passed it to them.

“Old Master, the one I gave you contains some items which would be good for Skysword Sect’s development. After all, I am an Elder of Skysword Sect’s in name. The Interspatial Silk Sachets for the others contain some medicine. The Skysword Sect still needs you to lead them to prosperity.”

“Then I won’t stand on ceremony.” Baili Jingwei was very happy. Although he didn’t show much surprise on his face, his heart was filled with indescribable joy and surprise. After all, he was already quite old and had experienced quite a lot of things in life, thus he wouldn’t go crazy from elation.

Qing Shui didn’t see Zhu Qing, but felt a little embarrassed to ask. When Yiye Jiange saw how Qing Shui was acting, she smiled and said, “I didn’t see Third Martial Sister. Is she not at Skysword Sect?”

In fact, Yiye Jiange was also puzzled. Zhu Qing basically never left Skysword Sect and thus she had wanted to ask this too.

“She is around. It’s just that some complications occurred to her when she was practicing her martial arts. Therefore, we didn’t inform her.” When Baili Jingwei mentioned Zhu Qing, he also frowned, as if he was troubled about something. However, when his eyes landed on Qing Shui, his eyes lit up.

“I’ve forgotten that Qing Shui is a great doctor. Go take a look at Zhu Qing!”

Qing Shui was also stunned when he heard what Baili Jingwei said. It seemed that Zhu Qing’s injuries weren’t light but weren't too serious either. He quickly nodded, “I’ll go take a look. Wait for my good news!”

Zhu Qing Peak!

Although he hadn’t come for very long, Qing Shui was still very familiar with the place. This place no longer forbids men from entering and it was a common sight to see male disciples waiting for people here. It wasn't rare for a man and woman couple to take a walk here while chatting.

Qing Shui’s appearance didn’t attract too much attention. Many people just found him unfamiliar but there were too many unfamiliar faces in Skysword Sect. Since there were so many people, it was impossible for an individual to recognize everyone. It was just like how this in Qing Shui’s previous world. When people went to school, while they might be able to recognize their classmates, they might not know as many people from the other classes.

Qing Shui walked into the familiar manor. There weren’t any guards here and the door wasn’t closed either. He walked into the small quiet courtyard. The rocky surface had a few twisted roads, with plants and trees on each side, releasing a faint fragrance.

He stepped onto the rocky surface and headed for the entrance to the hall. There weren’t many differences from the last time he was here. Before he reached the door, someone walked out.

A woman!

When Qing Shui saw that it was Zhu Qing, he was stunned. She was wearing an emerald pleated dress which couldn’t hide her wonderful curves. She was a petite lady but she had well-rounded breasts and bosom. She also had a mature and seductive face which would stand out no matter where she went.

There hadn't been many changes to her mature and exquisite face. However, when she saw Qing Shui, her mouth opened slightly as she stood there in a daze. Qing Shui smiled and walked over, carrying her up horizontally.

“Zhu Qing!”

Qing Shui carried this lady who was much older than he was. She should be about the same age as Lady Duanmu, but the difference was that Lady Duanmu had a daughter. Their ages would be at most thirty if compared to the people from his previous life.

The Spiritual Qi in the World of the Nine Continents was abundant and Zhu Qing was still in her prime. Therefore, in this world, people judged ladies by her face and abilities. One’s abilities could allow them to sustain their youth for a longer of time and delay their aging. There were also top notch skills which could allow one to forever retain their youth. It was just that these techniques were rare and each of them could be seen as a supreme treasure.

“Qing Shui, ah, I’m not dreaming!” Zhu Qing hugged Qing Shui and cried out in great surprise.

Qing Shui looked at this docile lady who appeared to be very blissful. He felt very guilty when he saw this mature lady acting so docile. She was the one whom he had given the least to, and yet she felt so satisfied just at the sight of him.

Qing Shui carried her and sat down on the soft bed. Earlier, he had already discovered that she had hurt her meridian channels in the course of her training. If he hadn’t guessed wrongly, she would feel agony every two days. It was because the Qi of Xiantian in her body would run amok.

“Qing Shui, why have you come to Skysword Sect?” Zhu Qing rested in Qing Shui’s arms, looking at him. From the moment she saw him, her smile had not faded.

“Stop looking. I’ll let you do as you wish at night!” Qing Shui smiled and look at this lady whose face was quickly covered in a red blush.

“You’re not allowed to say something like that. If you say that, you’ll have to make sure to fulfill the promise…”

Qing Shui’s hands were already playing with her well-rounded figure, and he withdrew his hands unwillingly. If this were to continue, he would probably lose his calm right now. He looked at this woman who appeared to be both charming and seductive at this moment.

“I’ve missed you. This time around, I’m here to bring you home with me. You’re my wife.” Qing Shui hugged her and said happily.

Zhu Qing was astonished and looked at Qing Shui with surprise. A hint of a smile flashed in her clear eyes, “Qing Shui, thank you for your kind intentions. I’m already very thankful that you have these thoughts. There’s no need to do this…”

Pa!

Qing Shui slapped her well-rounded butt hard, causing a layer of mist to appear in Zhu Qing’s eyes. She looked at Qing Shui pitifully.

“You’re my woman. If you are to say those things in the future, I’ll do the same to you again. A couple will always be on equal grounds, otherwise, there wouldn’t be any love and there would only be pity at most. Zhu Qing, what I feel for you is love. I can’t explain it, but I know that it’s love.” Qing Shui rested his head against hers.

Zhu Qing smiled and hugged Qing Shui tightly. She took the initiative to kiss Qing Shui’s lips and crazily sought for more. Qing Shui’s hands didn’t rest and he lifted up her clothes not long after. Her twin peaks jumped out like snow white rabbits.

Qing Shui buried his face in them and greedily sucked. Suddenly, the door to the bedroom opened. Zhu Qing lifted her head to see Yiye Jiange standing at the door, looking at them in a daze.

When Qing Shui stopped and saw the blushing Yiye Jiange. He said awkwardly, “We’re in the midst of treating her injuries…”

“Next time, lock the door!”

Yiye Jiange threw this line and ran out quickly. The scene of Qing Shui sucking on those snow white breasts kept flashing in her mind, as if it was a curse corroding her body. This caused her to feel weird and she had a strong urge to hold Qing Shui tightly.

She panicked. The scene was very clear in her mind, and she wasn’t able to erase it at all. Her face was burning up and her mind was in a mess. The impact she had experienced from that scene was too great and she was stunned for quite a while before she was able to regain her senses.

With Yiye Jiange gone, Qing Shui thought of what he said earlier, to give treatment to Zhu Qing…

Zhu Qing pulled down her clothes and lowered her head. The impact of being seen by Yiye Jiange was too great for her too. She then lifted her head and looked at Qing Shui, her charming eyes had a hint of embarrassment.

“Come, let me treat your injuries!” Qing Shui smiled and took out a Gold Needle.

“You knew…”

“The reason I’m here is to treat you. Jiange probably is here to see if you’re feeling better…” Qing Shui grinned and said.

“Jiange? Qing Shui, have you eaten Martial Sister yet?” Zhu Qing looked at Qing Shui with great interest.

“No!” Qing Shui carried up Zhu Qing and sat her down on the bed.

Zhu Qing smiled and looked at Qing Shui, deep in thought, “Martial Sister likes you. In the future, she’ll definitely marry you.”

Qing Shui didn’t wish to discuss this problem any further and remained silent. He started to help Zhu Qing treat the part of her meridian channels which had been broken. To Qing Shui, this injury was nothing much, but not many people could heal injuries related to meridian channels and the Dantian. It would be fine if the injuries were light, but if it the meridian channels had been broken or had other serious problems such as a huge degree of shrinkage, multiple holes, or blockage…not many people would be able to provide treatment unless they had some miraculous medicine.

He got it settled within 30 minutes. Afterwards, he then passed Zhu Qing an Interspatial Silk Sachet, “This is for you!”

Zhu Qing looked at Qing Shui and smiled, saying, “For me?”

“Of course it’s for you. Put the things you like in here. We’ll go home in two days.” Qing Shui hung the Interspatial Silk Sachet around her waist and then covered it with her clothes.

“Mm, I’ll let Eldest Martial Brother and Second Martial Brother know.” Zhu Qing said happily.

Qing Shui nodded. Zhu Qing had always been alone and when they headed back, he hoped that she would be able to blend into Qing Clan and let her lonely heart become alive and happy once again.

When Baili Jingwei and the others knew that Zhu Qing had been treated by Qing Shui, they were all very happy. Only Qing Shui, Zhu Qing, and Yiye Jiange appeared especially awkward when their gazes met.

Yiye Jiange didn’t dare to meet Qing Shui’s gaze. Zhu Qing went over and took her hand.

“Martial Sister, you’re really all better now?” Yiye Jiange asked seriously.

Yiye Jiange’s words didn't have any hidden intentions, but a hint of a flush appeared on Zhu Qing’s face, “Mmm, I’m fine now.”

Yiye Jiange looked at Zhu Qing then at Qing Shui. She wondered if they were really going through treatment earlier…

Baili Jingwei and the others didn’t know what had happened. Even at his age, Baili Jingwei hadn’t been able to tell anything this time around. Or rather, even if he could tell that something was amiss, he couldn’t really be sure.

“Eldest Martial Brother, Second Martial Brother… I’m going to leave Skysword Sect and head to Qing Shui’s place.” When Zhu Qing brought this up, it seemed to take her a lot of effort.

With that, Baili Jingwei and the others seemed to be able to tell that something was going on. He looked at her in surprise, then at Qing Shui, “You guys…”

“Eldest Martial Brother, I’m together with Qing Shui now.” Zhu Qing’s voice was very soft, but many people around them could hear her clearly.

Suddenly, Baili Jingwei smiled, causing many people to look at him in great surprise. He only looked at Qing Shui after a very long time. “I’m very happy. Tomorrow, we’ll hold a banquet in celebration.”

“Alright, when we arrive at the Continent’s Capital, I’ll hold a wedding banquet. When the time comes, Old Master, you guys will have to come.”

“I don’t think I’ll be going. I’m assured if Third Martial Sister were to follow you. This is a good surprise as well. Qing Shui, come join me for a walk!” Baili Jingwei said happily.

“Alright!”

Qing Shui and Baili Jingwei walked slowly on Skysword Mountain. Qing Shui knew that Baili Jingwei was going to tell him something.

“Qing Shui, it’s unexpected that you have gotten together with Zhu Qing, but I’m very happy.” Baili Jingwei smiled and said.

AST 983 – Clearing All Trivial Matters, Gifting You Earthly Paradise As Your Dowry

Hearing Baili Jingwei’s words, Qing Shui looked at him and asked puzzledly, “Why is that so?”

“Zhu Qing came from a pitiful background and it seemed that she had a trauma from that. It seems like I can be assured now. I hope that you can treat her better.” After saying this, Baili Jingwei let out a long exhale.

“Old Master, don’t worry, I know. Don’t you know what kind of person I am?” Qing Shui recalled the trauma that Baili Jingwei had mentioned. It should be related to her previous detest of men. Qing Shui knew about this long ago.

Seeing that it was still early, Qing Shui greeted them and prepared to head out to take a look at Earthly Paradise. Since Zhu Qing would stay for two days at most, she would need to hand over some stuff.

There was no way that Yiye Jiange would go out alone with Qing Shui. When she saw Qing Shui, that scene that would make her panic would appear in her mind. Therefore, Qing Shui ended up going alone.

Earthly Paradise!

Standing before the inn which remained as prosperous as before, a lot of emotions surged within him. In the past, Huoyun Liu-Li was the one who took charge here. Thinking back, he felt especially blissfully. Back when he first met Huoyun Liu-Li, it was at the Firecloud Blacksmith Store. He had never expected her to have another identity, which was Earthly Paradise’s boss. Additionally, the real boss in the background was Canghai Mingyue.

Qing Shui walked in. There wasn’t a single person here he recognized. He didn’t even know if the waitresses were the same as before. The reason he had come was to take a look at Mei Yanxue, to see if she was still doing fine.

Qing Shui headed upstairs!

“Sir, would you like to dine or to stay?”

A waitress walked over and asked politely. It might've been because Qing Shui was different from other people or because he had tried to head upstairs directly.

“I want to meet your boss!” Qing Shui looked at the waitress and said with a smile.

The waitress frowned. Their boss was extremely beautiful and many people had come to meet her. However, there hadn’t been anyone who had dared to barge upstairs directly.

“I’m sorry, our boss is not free!” The maid continued to smile and said.

Qing Shui was stunned. He had experienced a lot of things in life and judging from this waitress’ reaction, he knew that she must have treated him as a lecher. He had no choice but to say seriously, “Then can I trouble you to pass a message to your boss? Just say that I am Qing Shui.”

The waitress hesitated for a moment and headed upstairs. Qing Shui decided to wait here since he was in no hurry. It seemed that the place was doing well. Even though so many years had passed, not much had changed.

Very quickly, the sounds of a series of quick footsteps came from upstairs. Qing Shui lifted his head and when his gaze landed on a lady, he smiled.

She was a lady who was like white snow. Her snow white clothes on her beautiful figure gave the feeling that her clothes were tailor-made.

She had a slender and balanced figure. Most importantly, she had a pair of bulging breasts which seemed as if her clothes could barely hold in. Her eyes were bright and clear. When she saw Qing Shui, she was first surprised before she broke into a happy smile.

When she smiled, her eyes would squint together like a pair of crescent moons, giving her a great seductive charm. However, she was wearing white clothes which gave a sense of purity. She was an extremely seductive and charming lady.

The previous lady chef of Earthly Paradise should now be the boss to Earthly Paradise.

“Brother Qing Shui, you came alone?” Mei Yanxue walked up to Qing Shui happily.

“Do you not welcome me if I’m alone?” Qing Shui smiled and asked. This lady had addressed him as elder brother the first time they had met. She had done the same now, and that made Qing Shui quite happy.

“Why would I not? Come, let’s go up. You guys haven’t visited me after so long.” Mei Yanxue headed upstairs with Qing Shui.

“Have you been well?” Qing Shui looked at the highest storey’s hall and asked while smiling.

“Mmm, I’ve been fine. It’s just that I miss you guys a lot. How are they?” Mei Yanxue seemed to have sunk into her memories.

“They’re fine. They had wanted to come and visit but it’s not too convenient. They’ll come back and visit you in the future. This is for you.” Qing Shui handed her an Interspatial Silk Sachet filled with spices.

This woman only liked cooking and not training. However, Qing Shui still gave her an opportunity. Using the Xiantian Golden Pellet to let her reach Xiantian, she wouldn’t be as tired when managing Earthly Paradise.

“I’m assured to see that you’re fine. This Earthly Paradise is yours. In the future, we’ll come back to visit you. There are martial techniques amongst the things I’ve given you. If you don’t like it, it’s fine. You can let your most important person practice it. Don’t worry, no one will look for trouble here. However, you must still train up a few people you can trust so that you can deal with gangsters and the like.”

Qing Shui’s words were very clear. It was obvious that he wouldn’t come by often in the future and that the place has been given to her. Although Mei Yanxue felt that this was the case, she was still stunned for a short moment when Qing Shui told her this.

“Brother Qing Shui, this place belongs to Sister Liu-Li and Sister Mingyue… How can it be given to me?” Mei Yanxue shook her head and said.

“In the future, we might still be able to drop by. Oh, both Liu-Li and Mingyue both have kids now. They told me to pass you a message that Earthly Paradise is their dowry for you.”

“Ahh, you guys already have children? How I wish that I could meet them. You’re my elder brother. In the future, you must visit me often.” Mei Yanxue appeared slightly down, but she quickly regained her composure.

“Since you’ve already called me elder brother, we’ll definitely visit you often in the future. Enjoy your life and do what you like to do, which is cooking. No one will come looking for trouble.” Qing Shui smiled and patted her on the shoulder.

“Elder brother!”

Mei Yanxye hugged Qing Shui. Her family was very ordinary. She liked cooking and had an exceptional talent in this area. Everything she had today was given to her by this guy and his women.

When Qing Shui returned to Skysword Sect, it was already slightly dark and he went straight to Zhu Qing’s place. When she saw Qing Shui, Zhu Qing was so happy that she pounced over. This mature lady was very petite and gave the feeling of a docile homemaker. She was also a little wild, a wildness amidst her embarrassment.

Qing Shui didn’t say anything and locked the door and then carried her to the bed. Very quickly, that tempting figure was fully bared before him. Zhu Qing wasn’t tall and was about 1.6 meters. However, her body was very proportionate and she seemed very slender. She had an extremely well-rounded pair of breasts and a beautiful bosom. Just one look made Qing Shui’s blood boil. Her mature and exquisite face was flushed red and her seductive eyes had the ability to hook one’s soul.

The next morning, Qing Shui left very early. Not wishing for others to know what had happened between them, he went straight to Cloud Mist Peak for his morning practice.

“Father, you didn’t return the whole night. Didn’t you say that you were going to woo mother?” When Luan Luan saw Qing Shui, she asked directly.

“Lass, this has to be taken slowly. I promise you that in the end, your mother will definitely marry me. We’ve already agreed on this. Don’t you believe your father?” Qing Shui said, slightly awkwardly.

“Of course I trust you. You’ve promised me. You must make good on your promise.” Luan Luan said very seriously.

Qing Shui nodded, “I wouldn’t be able to bear seeing your mother getting married to someone else.”

Qing Shui knew what the lass was thinking. Although he had no blood relation with Luan Luan, they had been father and daughter for so many years. It was just that she felt a little uneasy after getting to know about her background. However, she was related to Yiye Jiange by blood. If he were to become a true couple with Yiye Jiange, then she might feel better. Qing Shui was also troubled by this daughter of his. Qing Shui had treated her even better than he had treated his own daughter, but this lass hadn’t been able to get past her own hurdle.

Qing Shui, Yiye Jiange, and Luan Luan had their breakfast at Cloud Mist Peak. Looking at Yiye Jiange who still couldn’t meet his gaze, Qing Shui also felt a little embarrassed for her to see that scene. If his other women were to come across this scene, he could still act shamelessly, and even tease them. However, this was Yiye Jiange…

This feeling was very weird because he loved this woman and respected her as well. He sneaked a look at her and it just so happened that their gazes met. Yiye Jiange had only looked toward Qing Shui because she noticed that he was in a daze during the meal.

“Father, mother, I’m full. I’ll head to the back of the mountains to see if there’s anything fun.” With that, Luan Luan smiled and left.

“Be careful!”

Qing Shui and Yiye Jiange said at almost the same time.

“Jiange!” Qing Shui spoke up, a bit unnaturally.

Yiye Jiange was a little anxious as well. She didn’t lift her head but continued to eat her meal slowly. Qing Shui didn’t say anything either and just appreciated the sight of her having her meal.

“Why are you looking at me? Eat your meal!”

“Actually, the strongest impression you’ve given me was a person who didn’t eat food from the human world. To be able to watch you eat is also an enjoyment in itself.”

Yiye Jiange was stunned and she lifted her head, smiling, “What’s wrong with you today? Are you feeling unwell?”

Qing Shui: “…”

Later in the morning, Baili Jingwei had a banquet prepared. There was only him and his Martial siblings, in addition to Qing Shui, Luan Luan, and Baili Wufeng. Zhu Qing’s face was flushed red throughout, as if she felt very embarrassed.

This was a simple wedding banquet. When they’d arrived at the Continent’s Capital, Qing Shui would prepare another wedding banquet for Zhu Qing. He had done so for all his other women. For those who hadn't held a wedding banquet immediately, he would always make it up to them.

“Third Sister, this is an affinity. Congratulations. There’s no need to feel embarrassed, this is very normal. Moreover, Qing Shui is also our Skysword Sect’s Elder, even if it’s just in name.” Baili Jingwei laughed.

When Yiye Jiange saw Zhu Qing’s shy and blissful expression, she was very happy. However, there was also an indescribable feeling in her heart. She was truly happy from the bottom of her heart to see Zhu Qing get her happiness.

She had been in Skysword Sect for very long. This was her home and these people are her siblings. She hoped that everyone here could be happy, especially Zhu Qing.

Qing Shui and the others bade the Skysword Sect goodbye and left. This time around, all four of them got on the Fire Bird for the journey. Zhu Qing and Yiye Jiange were chatting at one end while Qing Shui and Luan Luan were chatting on the other.

“Father, did you notice that mother seems to be a little jealous?” Luan Luan looked at Qing Shui seriously and said.

“Is she?” Qing Shui asked, puzzled.

“Yes, but it's probably just a little.”

When they returned to Yan City, the members of Qing Clan had already left. After a few polite exchange with Guo Clan and rejecting Lai Clan’s warm invitation, they left. Qing Shui wanted to return to the Continent’s Capital. Once they reach home, Qing Shui would be able to enjoy some peace and quiet for a while.

They didn’t travel very fast on the way.

A few days later, they arrived back home. They had basically arrived only a short time after the other members of Qing Clan. When they arrived, there was also a need for some introductions. But although some people were astonished, they were very warm and understanding. It wasn’t strange to see anything happen to Qing Shui.

All the people here were very intelligent. It was just like what Yiye Jiange had said. No women would be willing to share their partners with others, but sometimes, they had no other choice. Moreover, they were now very happy and wondered if this blissfulness would continue on just like this.

Qing Shui looked on as Canghai Mingyue, Huoyun Liu-Li, Mingyue Gelou, Shi Qingzhuang and the others chatted warmly with Zhu Qing. When Zhu Qing saw the children, she took out the small gifts she had prepared for them.
