Ancient Strengthening Technique - chapter-84
They crossed a grey iron door, and entered one of many rooms on the north
side of the shp. The room was not too big, about five meters deep, three
meters wide, and five meters tall.
“Here are some of the smaller molds and containers that we have
created. Oh, and over there are the needle molds that you were looking
for.” The woman pointed at tens of black unidentifiable objects that
were sitting in an inconspicuous corner, which were as thick as an arm,
and had many small holes in them.
“Can these objects withstand high temperatures?” Qing Shui asked
doubtfully while holding a mold that fit his demands. He was worried that
the mold wouldn’t be able to withstand the high temperature of the
Golden Essence Extract.
The woman laughed at Qing Shui’s question, which baffled Qing Shui.
However, at the same time, he felt that the woman’s chuckling
expression was truly beautiful. Though her appearance was not astounding,
there was a dull beauty about her. Though her face was not exquisite, it
possessed the grace of any other beauty. Combined with that refined and
sexy body, she gave off a strongly seductive charm.
“Molds are basically all the same, as long as their specifications are
suitable. Don’t worry about its ability to withstand high temperatures.
If you can find a way to melt fine iron, cold iron or darksteel, then
this mold will help you shape the instrument. The material for molds are
special, and all molds are disposable, so you don’t have to worry about
The woman’s voice which was filled with a light laughter seemed like
music to Qing Shui’s ears. Her voice was especially melodic with an
addicting quality. What made her voice even more beautiful were the words
that helped soothe Qing Shui’s doubts.
“Oh, so that’s how it is! I’m just an amateur, so I don’t know
much about it. Thank you for your advice. How much is this?” Qing Shui
picked up a mold that fulfilled his requirements and asked.
“Haha, twelve taels of silver!” The woman said with a laugh.
sure whether it was expensive or not, but he since he had thousands of
silver taels, he happily paid for it and walked out of the store. The
woman walked him out with a smile.
“Do you manage this Firecloud Blacksmith Store?” Qing Shui saw
several other people in the store, but they were obviously newly hired
because of their lack of grace compared to the woman.
“Haha, my family has run this blacksmith store for so many generations
that it is considered a landmark in the city. I’m just here to help out
my father for today.” Her buttery voice had an almost supernatural
“Your voice sounds really nice!” Qing Shui complimented her while
rubbing his nose and looking at the woman seriously.
Qing Shui knew from his past life that women loved to be praised, and
that they liked to receive compliments from men. When men had figured out
this detail, they would give out compliments like there was no tomorrow.
Many women had fallen for these sweet nothings, which were dug up by men
like how pigs dig up tubers.
In his past life, Qing Shui did not want to stoop to that level because
he felt that that was fake. However, after thinking about it, it did not
seem that bad after all.
The noble will always be noble, and the dishonorable will always be
dishonorable. Life in the world of the living was just about making the
most out of it. Why did we care so much about the means of getting there?
In the end, the winner takes everything, and the one who can laugh in the
end is the happiest!
The woman became a little startled after hearing Qing Shui’s words.
However, she quickly changed her expression and started smiling like a
flower. “Thank you for your kind words, I like your compliment.”
Qing Shui left with a smile. He didn’t asked for the woman’s name
because he knew the chances of meeting her again were miniscule. He
didn’t wanted to leave her feeling melancholic and add more trouble to
When he walked to a place without any other people, Qing Shui directly
entered the Violet Realm, and put the mold for the golden needles down in
front of him. Qing Shui observed the tiny holes for the needles. The
distance between each of the holes was a little apart, but the needle
holes were not transparent. They only stuck out a little on the other
side of the mold. Qing Shui knew that was the tip of the needle. The mold
felt a little cool, and the material unknown.
the Ancient Strengthening Technique, and slowly circulated his Qi to the
48th cycle, after which he activated the Yin-Yang Flame Technique in
order to refine the Golden Essence in his hands. Qing Shui could already
control the primordial flame to a large degree.
When he had finally melted the Golden Essence Extract in his palms into a
tiny liquid ball, he didn’t stop. He kept applying heat until the
liquid ball of gold reached a density so high that the liquid was giving
off an enormous amount of heat.
Qing Shui then carefully filled the holes drop by drop. He saw the hot
Golden Essence Extract liquid slowly fill each needle hole, which slipped
in easily because of the inclined edges.
Qing Shui knew that approximately one drop could fill one needle hole.
Although these needles were thin, they were dense, and each of these thin
needles weighed about one or two taels.
Qing Shui kept activating his primordial flames, and carefully filled
each little needle hole with a drop of the liquid Golden Essence Extract.
Nine. Qing Shui checked and saw that he had filled exactly nine needle
After a while, the needles had completely cooled down. Qing Shui slowly
shattered the mold, and nine shining seven-inch golden needles appeared
in front of Qing Shui, They were only a little bit thicker than a strand
of hair, but they were solid and sharp. Unlike silver needles, these
golden needles were more dense and heavy. Qing Shui tested these golden
needles, and they easily pierced a silver-coated wooden sword.
Weapons made with Golden Essence Extract must be really powerful!
