Ancient Strengthening Technique - chapter-816
However, Qing Shui straight away killed the elderly man, leaving Dan Peng
to turn blank on the spot.
But at this moment, a few people once again came in from outside.
Similarly, they were also old men at their sixties. The person taking the
lead was an incomparably wise-looking old man. Both of his eyes looked
clear and bright, it contained wisdom as well as kindness.
“Mister Qing, welcome to Rainbow Light Country, I just found out that
you came now. Sorry for scaring you. Please allow me to lend you a
hand,” the leading old man said politely.
“Yan Dao, you ignorant old man, you set a trap for me,” Dan Long
glared at Yan Dao and screamed with rage. Before he died, he suddenly
leaped towards Yan Dao.
“Without a hand, you’re nothing.” Yan Dao calmly knocked down Dan
Qing Shui looked at Yan Dao and felt more at ease. Even though he has
heard negative things about Dan Clan before, he has also heard a thing or
two about Yan Clan.
Yan Clan was the second biggest clan in Rainbow Light City. In any case,
at least Yan Clan had a better reputation than Dan Clan. Now that they
got an opportunity where they could benefit each other, he naturally
wouldn’t reject it.
“Alright, sorry for the trouble then, Qing Shui.” Qing Shui smiled
and gestured Yan Dao to do as he liked.
“Thank you Mister Qing. If there’s anything which you need in the
future, the Yan Clan will definitely serve you well like a dog or a
horse,” Yan Dao responded politely.
“Ah, you’re Qing Shui… You’re the patriarch of Heavenly
Palace……”Dan Long looked at Qing Shui in shock before staring at
the ground with eyes filled with rage. Dan Peng stared at Qing Shui in
disbelief. Slowly, his head hit the floor and he died. As that happened,
purple colored blood flowed out the corner of his mouth.
The remaining people looked at the group in front of them in disbelief.
They were the backbone of Greencloud Continent. Furthermore, the very
young man in front of them was the person who had eliminated two Supreme
That’s a Supreme Aristocratic Clan, a clan which they would never catch
up to even if they had patted the horse’s bottom. Their very own clan,
when in front of a Supreme Aristocratic Clan, wasn’t even enough to be
of any concern. The man in front of them, on the other hand, he had
eliminated two Supreme Aristocratic Clans and now, they were even
planning to take his women away from him… How was this not considered
Dan Peng straight away committed suicide. In the moment he found out the
young man was Qing Shui, he already knew that there was no way out for
Yan Clan made their move. Dan Long was dead, Yan Dao went into Dan Clan
like a tiger rushing into a flock of sheep. Alot of the people from Yan
Clan also turned up today and the place turned really quiet in just a
Under the command of Yan Dao, they cleaned up all the corpses here. They
did it so thoroughly that even the bloody smell in the air was covered up
with a sweet smell.
“Mister Qing, I will stop bothering you then. If there’s anything
that you need, please do inform us,” Yan Dao said politely.
“Mister Yan Lao, I’ll leave everything about Dan Clan to your Yan
Clan then,” Qing Shui said with a smile.
With his words, Qing Shui actually meant leaving everything that Dan Clan
collected to Yan Clan. Even though Qing Shui didn’t have much interest
in Dan Clan’s collection, to Yan Clan, it was still an undeserved
After merely a day of rest, the group once again continued their journey
back to Heavenly Palace. Everything here was just a brief interlude on
their journey. It was considered a good experience for the three
generations of Qing Clan because killing people was something which
everyone has to learn.
Every time they stopped at night, Qing Shui would teach them ways to
cultivate. Before sleeping, they would also need to take in an Aroma
Concentration Pill. During the day, he would also explain to them a thing
or two about cultivation on their mounts.
During this period of time, Qing Shui felt really happy. This was because
Qing Qing was unusually suitable to cultivate Crane Form. This form was
the form which he used the least. There were very few things in Crane
Style. There were only the Soaring Crane Steps and Thousand Crane Slash.
Qing Shui had already fused his Soaring Crane Steps with Cloudmist Steps.
Actually, his Cloudmist Steps was already no ordinary Cloudmist Steps
from a long time ago. He started off with the earliest Ghostly Steps and
made his way up to the Free Spirit Steps. After that, he fused them with
Soaring Crane Steps before eventually fusing it with the Cloudmist Steps.
For the Thousand Crane Slash, Qing Shui had only cultivated it up to
Small Success Stage. He felt that it was not really that useful. It only
helped raise attack and speed and it was a waste that its potential for
attack was too small. Since he could still cultivate the things further
beyond without cultivating the Thousand Crane Slash, Qing Shui had always
neglected it. Even at the time when he taught others about the Crane
Form, he only made them cultivate the Soaring Crane Steps.
The moment when Qing Shui taught Qing Qing the Crane Form, he never
thought Qing Qing’s speed at cultivating to be anything inferior to the
time Mingyue Gelou spent on her Tiger Form.
Hence, Qing Shui also taught Qing Qing the Thousand Crane Slash. What
made Qing Shui gasped in surprise was that Qing Qing was really hard
working. Since the time the incident with the Baima Clan had ended up to
now, Qing Qing had told him that both her Thousand Crane Slash and
Soaring Crane Steps were already at the Large Success Stage.
Qing Shui was stunned for a moment before being filled with surprise. He
gently hugged Qing Qing, “I’ve been panicking about finding a
suitable technique for you to cultivate… It seems like there’s no
longer any need for this.”
Qing Qing, who was being hugged by Qing Shui, extended her hand and
rubbed Qing Shui’s head with a smile. They were blood-related family
members, they had the same blood flowing inside their bodies. Both of
them were a refuge for the other. In fact, this sister of his had already
done a lot for herself.
“Sister, why don’t you practice it? I’ll have a look at it.”
The sky had just gotten dark. This place was a desolate countryside.
Qing Qing’s figure could be seen rapidly travelling back and forth on
the field. Her body movement looked natural and graceful, bringing out
the agility of the Soaring Crane Steps. In the mere span of a couple
breaths, she gradually thrust out both of her hands like a white crane
opening up its wings. After that, she swiftly crossed her hands and threw
Roughly ten palm silhouettes could be seen being thrust out. There may be
a lot of needless hand movements, together it seemed as if a weird
combination was formed. Each of the the claps was also different.
A series of loud and clear noises was heard. After that, Qing Qing
continued on for another fifteen minutes. Only after that did she come to
a stop and turn back to look at Qing Shui, “After you helped me perform
the acupuncture, I’ve been able to cultivate this faster. At that time,
even I myself was scared but slowly, I got used to it.”
“This is great sister, in the future practice the Crane Form! Later on,
I’m going to teach you a set of Cloudhand. For now, practice these
first. Oh and remember to practice the Taichi Fist every morning and
everything should be fine,” Qing Shui said happily. At the same time,
he made up his mind to cultivate his Thousand Crane Slash. Previously, if
he had been able to execute tens of the palm images, it would definitely
have been quite strong. He realized that he really couldn’t neglect any
of the techniques in the Nine Animals Mimicry Technique.
Not only would Qing Qing be able to achieve great things with his Crane
Form in the future, she even had the Four-eared Macaque. She would become
really strong in no time. Overall, Qing Clan was progressing in a healthy
As usual, Qing Shui made the Diamond Gigantic Elephant, Fire Bird and Ten
Thousand Poisonous Violet Sable guard the night. Qing Shui on the other
hand, spent his time cultivating in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal
and refining medicines.
The recipe of Du Meridian Strengthening Pill would be coming out soon.
Ren Du… As soon as Qing Shui heard the two words, he got excited. So
what else would come after Du Meridian Strengthening Pill? Could all
eight of the human meridians possibly be unlocked? If that’s the case,
it actually wasn’t a bad thing. It’s just that more time would have
to be consumed for this to happen.
Now, Qing Shui was already really skilled with his Sword of Sixth Wave.
Not only this, the time he needed to prepare it had also been cut down
slightly. This made Qing Shui feel really happy. After all, other than
Hidden Weapons and poisons, his Sword of Sixth Wave was still a really
strong weapon. He could basically kill people at the same grade as him
with one move of it.
In unexpected situations, the ‘Critical Damage’ would also be
considered a killer move. But now, the defensive boost provided by the
cloth was soon unable to catch up. He can only hope his abilities in
forging level up quickly.
At the moment, Qing Shui was practicing his, ‘Hundred Forms of
Tiger’. Unfortunately, his Levels of Drawing was still at the critical
point. One on his legs had already stepped into the Level of Drawing
Bones, yet for reasons unknown, he was still unable to break through.
Now, he calmed his mind and stopped thinking about breaking through.
Instead, the only thing he thought about was drawing the Hundred Forms of
the Tiger well. He wanted to make his drawing look even more real in
order for it to possess the most perfect strength and form.
With that being the case, unknowingly, Qing Shui felt as if he was more
relaxed when drawing it now, so much so that he had a feeling like he was
moving through the clouds and flowing waters. After such a long period of
time, Qing Shui’s “Levels of Drawings” was no longer something that
could be looked down upon.
Just like this, Qing Shui kept on drawing and drawing as if he had
forgotten about time itself. The only thing that he knew was that he felt
unusually relaxed. Now, drawing had become something which he enjoyed
rather than a mission which he used to always forced himself to do.
He had no idea how long had passed. It felt as if it had just been an
instant, yet it also felt like it has been hundreds and thousands of
years… At this moment, he smiled and put down the Golden Calligraphy
It broke through!
Level of Drawing Bones!
After such a long time, he had finally achieved the Level of Drawing
Bones. Furthermore, Qing Shui also felt a slight change in his mental
state. It felt as if he was now able to look over a lot of stuff, a
feeling like he had just grown up and also a feeling of nostalgia. So
much so that he didn’t feel as helpless now when he thought about the
Lion King’s Ridge. It was not that his strength had increased, it was
just that he had become more calm than before.
This was a kind of feeling, a kind of mood. It was just like when one
remained indifferent despite whether they were being favored or
humiliated. It was a feeling of looking at the flowers in the courtyard
blossoming and falling without paying any particular attention to it,
looking at the clouds jumbling up together and spreading out.
(TL note: it’s a description in chinese, it’s used to describe how
one could remain indifferent and calm no matter what’s thrown to them.
And that how quickly they could analyze and adapt to the situations like
how clouds could jumble up and spread out from each other)
