AST 1934 - Three Years Later, Immortal Dao Divine Origin Refinement
Three years time passed in the blink of an eye!
Qing Shui was currently in the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal and facing the Immortal Dao Divine Origin. In three years’ time, Qing Shui thought his body was strong enough and it was the perfect timing to refine the Immortal Dao Divine Origin now. Hence, Qing Shui decided to start the refinement.
The old man suggested Qing Shui to find a quiet place free from disturbance, but Qing Shui was not afraid. The Realm of Violet Jade Immortal was absolutely safe. Besides, there was a formation in the Imperial Cuisine Hall. Although Qing Shui’s close friends and women did not know about formation, they could move freely in the formation.
Qing Shui was not worried, he focused on revolving the energy in his body, then he raised his hand slowly!
Qing Shui’s hands became crystal clear and almost transparent at once. Next, he reached over to the jade box. The next second, his hand was surrounded by a semi-liquid and vapor-like object.
Qing Shui took a deep breath, grasping with his fingers bent.
The Immortal Dao Divine Origin within the jade box flooded like a broken dam but vanished in no time. At this moment, Qing Shui felt a massive energy rushing into his body. That was an unyielding energy, it drifted within the meridians rapidly. A burning pain stimulated Qing Shui’s brain.
As the Immortal Dao Divine Origin entered his body, Qing Shui realized it flowed within his meridians unorderly instead of being dispersed. He could sense his body absorbing it continuously as his energy strengthened incessantly. However, he felt the meridians being damaged due to the overbearing Immortal Dao Divine Origin.
Royal’s Qi pellet, Yin-Yang Image, Divinity Spirit, even the Central Palace Blood Essence Pool and the Divine Nebula Formation of the Consciousness Ocean were constantly absorbing this energy and intensifying ceaselessly.
Time ticked by, Qing Shui crossed his legs and sat in silence. His face was pale and his body was slightly trembling most of the time.
Soon, a week was over!
Qing Shui appeared as pale as a piece of paper. On top of that, tiny vessels-like objects were seen bulging on the skin as if they were ready to burst at any time.
Qing Shui was depressed. It had been three years, three years of preparation and he was out of words now. In short, he was experiencing extreme torture and in essentially great danger now. Qing Shui did not mind about torment any longer since he endured so much after all these years.
Qing Shui was concerned that he would explode and die, he would die in deep agony then. Things like this happened every day. Out of greed, the wages of avarice was death, that was a norm.
Fortunately, Qing Shui was strong enough. Not only was his resistance strong, but his resilience also. Otherwise, he would have exploded.
He dared not to be distracted at all. The Ancient Strengthening Technique kept revolving.
The Ancient Strengthening Technique was Qing Shui’s roots, though Ninth Heavenly Layer was achieved a very long time ago and at its peak, Qing Shui knew that there was no end to the martial arts cultivation. The Ninth Heavenly Layer could be the greatest and top-ranked realm, but that was because nobody had ever broken through the realm of Ninth Heavenly Layer.
Breaking the Shackles Realm!
It was easier said than done, it was harder than climbing the Heaven.
A precise and pure energy melted in Qing Shui’s body and transformed into his own energy to resist the domineering Immortal Dao Divine Origin.
The energy rose inversely with the force, Qing Shui began to see a bigger hope now. Initially, Qing Shui worried that he was unable to withstand it.
Apart from that, Qing Shui had a very strong healing power. There was no one around, or else, that person would be surprised by Qing Shui now. Fresh blood kept oozing out from the wounds on Qing Shui’s body.
Another week passed, one-fifth of the Immortal Dao Divine Origin in the body had faded and Qing Shui felt his strength increase tremendously. Although his body was already numb and unable to feel any pain, his meridians were constantly in a highly hazardous state.
Even though it was hazardous to the extent of breaking meridians at any time, he was certain that he would be fine with his high resilience. Calming his mind, he operated his Force of Rebirth.
The Force of Rebirth merged into the Qi of the Ancient Strengthening Technique and flowed in his body. This immediately made things better for those meridians that were previously in danger. While achieving higher resilience, it healed some damaged areas too.
Qing Shui looked up to this Force of Rebirth all the times. He got ruined before and recovered with the aid of the Force of Rebirth. As long as Qing Shui was still alive, he could rely on the great Force of Rebirth to recuperate. However, the time required was uncertain.
Two weeks, three weeks……
Two months later, Qing Shui opened his eyes and stretched his body. A loud, cracking sound was heard.
Finally, it was fully absorbed and his entire body was safe now. Looking at his clothes, it was completely blood-stained and dried. It appeared to be a striking red outfit now.
Qing Shui frowned, he removed his clothes hurriedly. After a shower, he changed into fresh and clean clothes.
Two weeks’ time in the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal equaled half a day in the outside world, hence Qing Shui was not in a rush to leave.
The Immortal Dao Divine Origin allowed Qing Shui’s strength to attain another immense boost. Through absorption, Qing Shui discovered that it was a blood-fighting Immortal Dao Divine Origin which was stronger in its attacking power. Thus, Qing Shui obtained an enormous rise in attacking power while his defense power only increased slightly.
Qing Shui tried to feel his current strength, his attacking power was around 200 million Dao Force and his total defense power was 300 million Dao Force.
In short, Qing Shui absorbed the Immortal Dao Divine Origin and it transformed into 100 million Dao pure defense power.
All these while, Qing Shui’s attacking power was inadequate. This time, the Immortal Dao Divine Origin complemented the shortage completely. Previously, Qing Shui’s attacking power was only one-tenth of his current one, this transformation was earthshaking.
200 million Dao Force might not be a lot for others. Those days, the Barbarian Emperor might have similar attacking power, the Old Ancestor and the two old men beside him could have it too. It was only Qing Shui’s assumption, but it would not differ much in the reality.
However, with the 200 million Dao Force, Qing Shui had outshined the others. Putting aside the great Paragon Strike which was absolutely a destructive attack, even simply Qing Shui’s Nine Continent’s Mountain was unbearable. The Barbarian Emperor and the Old Ancestor of the Great Confucian Empire would be hard pressed to endure it.
An easy strike of the Nine Continent’s Mountain would be 600 million Dao Force.
This Immortal Dao Divine Origin which focused on attacks was a timely assistance to Qing Shui. The Immortal Dao Divine Origin’s energy was extremely pure and pristine, it would not affect the foundation as the strength increased. Hence, Qing Shui did not feel any discomfort at all.
Feeling the energy within his body, it was as if a human taking the T-rex form. Besides, the defense power also increased by 100 million Dao Force.
Defense power used to be Qing Shui’s pride, but the attacking power was catching up now. For a normal warrior, his attacking power was five times higher than his defense power or more. Basically, it would be hard to break the defense once the attacking power was twice as high as the defense power.
