Ancient Strengthening Technique - chapter-74
Yi called out, stopping Qing Shui, who was intending to catch a few more
Qing Shui knew that Qing Yi’s cooking skills were among the cream of
the crop. He licked his lips, as he knew that in the future even without
him saying anything, there would be something delicious for dinner every
The sound of the chopsticks on the dinner table clicked at a speed that
left Qing Shui astounded. He bitterly looked at his bowl of rice and his
uncle Qing Hu, and Qing Shan and Qing Shi beside him who were devouring
the fish with gusto.
“I have never eaten such a delicious fish, it tastes even better than
what we had at the Yu He Inn!” Qing Hu rubbed his belly and mentioned
with satisfaction, as Qing Shan and Qing Shi both rapidly nodded their
heads in agreement.
During the night, Qing Shui once again entered inside his spatial realm.
He sighed, thinking that this place was still the best. Another day had
passed, and the foot-long black fish had stopped growing in size, the
only difference was that the luster of their scales were even brighter,
while the turtles on the other hand, grew slightly bigger and
Qing Shui could finally let himself relax. Initially he thought that the
black fish would continue to grow in size, and if that had been the case,
then he would have no solutions for it. After all the size of the crystal
pond in his spatial realm was limited too.
As for the turtles, in normal circumstances, they would already enjoy a
long lifespan. In this world of the nine continents, there were many wild
beasts, ferocious beasts and even desolate beasts, who died of old age
before they could form their demonic cores at the age of 500. Only beasts
which could meet certain fortuitous events, such as consuming various
spiritual herbs and fruits to extend their lifespans, or creatures such
as turtles and tortoises. It was extremely tough to evolve into a demonic
That was why, Qing Shui had no worries that the fish would evolve into
demonic beasts. It was even harder for beasts to reach the Xiantian
state, tougher even than ascending the heavens. As for the black turtles,
there were various records of turtles over 1,000 years old, but still
couldn’t even be considered at the desolate level. There was no
guarantee that beasts would evolve and form their core after 500 years.
However for meat of turtles, the older they were, the more nourishing
they would be! That was why Qing Shui had no qualms about rearing them
till they are a few hundred years old, or even above 1,000 years old, so
he could taste their meat.
from demonic beasts were the tastiest, but those who had really tasted
it, could be counted on one hand. Qing Shui felt an itch in his heart. In
the future when he was strong enough, he would definitely hunt a few
demonic beasts in order to taste their flesh.
Inside the spatial realm, there were many techniques for Qing Shui to
focus his training upon. However, he wasn’t the slightest bit
concerned. After all, what he had was nearly unlimited time.
When he was hungry, he would simply grill a fish, when he was tired, he
would drink some water and take a rest. He had even moved a bed inside
the spatial realm. Other than that, Qing Shui also discovered that the
spatial realm was capable of keeping even seasoning ingredients fresh,
and thus, he had moved a large quantity of salt and other seasoning
ingredients to be stored inside the spatial realm. After all, seasoning
was like the joy of life, food with no seasoning added, would only be 2nd
grade at best, dull and tasteless.
“Primordial Fire!” Qing Shui extended both his palms, and on the
surface of both palms were tiny grey-colored embers, rotating around.
Using that flame, Qing Shui slowly grilled the fishes.
The primordial fire saps his energy level too quickly. Qing Shui could
only maintain the Yin-Yang Flame for about four hours. After all, he was
only at the 3rd layer of the Ancient Strengthening Technique.
Sitting down inside the spatial realm contently, after his hunger had
been sated, Qing Shui once again tidied up all the information that was
unlocked after his breakthrough. To his immense surprise, he discovered
two other techniques – Heavenly Vision Technique, and Holy Sacred Hands!
After studying the content of both techniques, Qing Shui discovered that
the techniques were medical-based. For the Heavenly Vision Technique,
when he activated the Qi from the Ancient Strengthening Technique, then
it would grant him an “x-ray” kind of vision, where he could peer at
the inner organs and mystical energy channels in the human body in order
to pinpoint the area of injury or problem easily.
While the Holy Sacred Hands, was able to set bones, increase the accuracy
of his hand movements, and increase his speed and agility. Other than
that, when this technique was activated, Qing Shui could infuse his hands
with the Qi from the Ancient Strengthening Technique, and transfer it to
the patient’s body, giving the patient’s body immense benefits.
Qing Shui was already numbed from the discoveries. Merely just unlocking
Alchemy would already be sufficient to last him for his life time. To
think that now, there were two other innate techniques that could be used
in conjunction, increasing his medical skills. Each one of them caused
Qing Shui to tremble in anticipation, the Ancient Strengthening Technique
was truly the best indeed!
Unlocking Alchemy through enlightenment, could it be that the other
greyed-out sections in his sea of consciousness could only be unlocked
after even more bouts of enlightenment?
the way of the Heavens! When would it be again before he could experience
Luckily for Qing Shui, both the basics of the Heavenly Vision and the
Holy Sacred Hands techniques were extremely easy to be proficient in. All
of the techniques had the same concept, they were all dependent on the Qi
of the Ancient Strengthening Technique.
What a pity that his strength was only at the 3rd Layer. If he broke
through to the 4th, without a doubt, Qing Shui knew that he would
definitely step inside the realm of Xiantian!
