AST 2458 - There Were Treasures, Killing All
Right now, Qing Shui felt as if all of his six senses had been activated and the Taichi essence in his hands started becoming increasingly stronger. In the past, it had only been at the level of truth and obscurity but it was only then that he had come into contact with Dao regulations, to accumulate more and release less. Right now, Qing Shui could sense that his accumulation was overflowing. Once he found a release point, there would be no holding back.
Cloudhand, Hill Moving Hammer, Single Whip...
Seemingly Sealed Shut, Tiger\'s Descent, Overturned River... Right now, Qing Shui\'s Taichi had surpassed that of the recognition of Taichi in his previous life. His moves were also not restricted to only the 24 stances or some meaningless numbers. His Taichi was simply a feeling and there were no more stances.
His drifting figure darted through the air elegantly, as if he had integrated into the air. When he attacked, there didn\'t seem to be any waves, and only when he got close to coming into contact would the other party realize his dangerous powers. It was a mysterious combination of toughness and gentleness.
The middle-aged man was rendered only capable of being on the defense. He was unable to calm down, and the more this was the case, the more it was harder for him to handle the attacks. He was already at his wits\' end, struggling to fend off Qing Shui\'s assaults. The places he had been hit felt as if he was burned by fire and frozen by ice simultaneously. He felt extremely unwell and was trying very hard to hang on.
With a punch, Qing Shui\'s palm struck onto the middle-aged man\'s heart.
The sound of shattering bone was extremely crisp and the middle-aged man retreated while spurting blood. Qing Shui drew back his attacks and didn\'t give chase. This battle had caused Qing Shui\'s realm to undergo a hint of a change, and there was a qualitative improvement toward his battle consciousness on the microscopic level.
He Fan was extremely surprised. That middle-aged man was considered to be from one of the strongest batches even amongst the He Clan. Someone at the fifth level of the Nurture God Realm was considered to be very respectable in the clan. Even He Fan would have to address him as Uncle.
However, to think that such a person had been completely defeated at the hands of a young man. He Fan found it very hard to accept this. He himself was also considered to be a genius and had garnered a lot of attention onto him. However, right now, he felt that the difference between the young man and himself was like that of the light of a firefly and that of the moon.
A myriad of thoughts gushed up inside his mind and the first of them was to kill Qing Shui immediately. If Qing Shui was killed, so what if he was an outstanding existence? However, he took a quick look at his surroundings. Even the strongest person he had with him had been defeated. There was only one way remaining—to gang up against him.
However, He Fan also knew that there were risks to this. If they didn\'t manage to kill Qing Shui, then, wouldn’t he become the one killed instead? However, He Fan was quickly amused by his own thoughts. Who was he? He was a member of the He Clan. Who in the Mortal City would dare to kill him?
"Everyone, attack him together." He Fan was soon swayed by his own thoughts and became confident again. There were no fewer than 30 people with him. Although the strongest one of them had been defeated, there were also ten or so people amongst the remaining people who were just slightly weaker than the middle-aged man.
At this moment, He Fan brought out something that was like a basin-sized mirror. While everyone else dashed out toward Qing Shui, he stayed back to shine his mirror toward Qing Shui.
A stream of snow-white light from a sword Qi instantly slashed out toward Qing Shui.
At that moment, all the pores on Qing Shui\'s body contracted. He instinctively moved and dodged that stream of light.
All the sturdy manors in the surroundings were turned into ruins.
This place wasn\'t far off from the auction hall and was situated within a busy market. With so many manors destroyed, quite a number of people had been implicated and gotten hurt. Qing Shui frowned. What kind of treasure was that? It had such an overwhelming aura. He wasn\'t willing to try and go up against it, despite how strong his physical body was. He wouldn\'t go looking for trouble for himself.
Seeing that Qing Shui had dodged the attack, the corners of He Fan\'s lips slightly curled up into a smile. At this moment, the rest of the people had charged their way right up to Qing Shui, attacking him with sabers, spears, swords, or were either punching and kicking at him.
Qing Shui had brought out his Golden Battle Halberd and called out the Dragon Slaying Beast. He then threw out a Total Annihilation attack.
The Golden Battle Halberd released a golden half-spherical light that seemed to tear apart even air, extending out toward the surroundings.
This was Qing Shui\'s full-power attack. He forcibly threw this violent attack toward his opponents.
An intense gush of spiraling Qi caused the earth in the surroundings to explode, creating many trenches. Qing Shui\'s resistance to attacks was very powerful and he didn\'t receive much damage. He didn\'t back off but instead, continue advancing. His Dragon-capturing Hands reached out to grab an old man.
At the same time, the Dragon Slaying Beast also showed great teamwork and its elusive figure darted out.
Right now, the Dragon Slaying Beast was a lot more menacing than before. It now possessed the primordial blood lineage and had gone through qualitative changes in terms of its strength, speed, and sharpness. Its body toughness made it just like an indestructible cockroach.
Someone\'s head exploded from the attack, like a bursting watermelon.
Qing Shui didn\'t stop but continued to dash out toward He Fan immediately. Seeing Qing Shui coming toward him, He Fan raised his treasure once again. However, that time Qing Shui didn\'t give him the chance and struck out a Stellar Transposition. Simultaneously, the Nine Continents Mountain appeared before him with a single thought. Its size was only big enough to block him.
And then, there was silence.
He Fan had disappeared, leaving behind only that mirror-like item. The light struck onto the Nine Continents Mountain and as a Supreme Treasure, the Nine Continents Mountain wasn\'t destroyed. However, a crater that was three-inch deep appeared on it. This still made Qing Shui very surprised. To think that the light released by this thing was so destructive. This was the first time that something had left such a deep mark on the Nine Continents Mountain.
"You\'re done for. You\'ve killed Young Master He. The He Clan won\'t let you off!" An old man shouted angrily toward Qing Shui.
"I have no idea if I\'m done for, but I know for sure that you guys are." Qing Shui charged out toward the other party, not holding back at all. These people wanted to kill him. They were already the strongest existence in the Mortal City and yet they threw their weight about and commited evil deeds. They deserved to be killed.
Qing Shui burned the entire scene, picked up that mirror-like item, and then turned to see that the lady was still standing there.
"You should go back." Qing Shui smiled.
"Hah… what should I say? You were too impulsive. The He Clan isn\'t just powerful in the Mortal City, but is also a prominent existence in other places. Forget it, just be careful." The lady sighed, shook her head, and turned to leave.
Qing Shui hadn\'t expected that this lady would show him so much concern. He began clearing his head. This was just polite talk. They probably wouldn\'t meet again after leaving this place.
After returning to the manor, Qing Shui returned to his room and entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Qing Shui thought of the He Clan as he stood in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. That person from earlier wasn\'t from He Clan\'s main branch. He hadn\'t seen the terrifying powers from the He Clan\'s legacy either. He had just established a great feud against the He Clan and no matter which party was in the wrong, the He Clan definitely wouldn\'t leave things unsettled.
Qing Shui wasn\'t worried. If he were to encounter them, then he\'d just take them head-on. He wasn\'t a pushover and wasn\'t worried even if his opponent was the He Clan. However, it would still be good to make preparations earlier.
He left the realm and set up two layers of the Roaming Fish Formation of the Nine Palaces and Eight Trigrams around their manor. He then returned to the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
He brought out the two items he had won from the auction hall—The Advance Paragon Pill and the Immortal Jade Cauldron.
Since he had thought things through, he took out the Immortal Jade Cauldron to improve the Divine Weapon Flying Sword without delay.
With a single thought, the Divine Weapon Flying Sword appeared in Qing Shui\'s hand. It was a small rustic sword that was three inches long. It looked very exquisite yet was extremely sharp, filled with Immortal Qi and Spiritual Qi. It also had a violent aura, as if it could engulf mountains and rivers.
Qing Shui used his Nine Yang Force to activate the Primordial Flames, enveloping both the Divine Weapon Flying Sword and the Immortal Jade Cauldron.
