AST 1202 – Seal of Roc Small Success Stage, Divine Might Dynasty
“Sister, don’t worry, I haven’t grown to like him . We’re just friends . ”
“Alright, you’re still young and there’s no need for you to think about these things so early . Focus on your cultivation . ” Eldest Princess smiled . It might be since she had thought of how she was still single despite her age .
“Sister, you should find one . It’s just that there are too few people who are a match for you . ”
“Lass, you only know how to speak gibberish . Your little mind only think of such weird things . ” Eldest Princess said happily to Seventh Princess . At this moment, she was very happy .
“Has Sister’s quota for recruiting members for the Heaven Secrets Academy this year been filled already?” Seventh Princess suddenly asked .
“Mmm, that’s right . It’s already been half a year . What about it?” Eldest Princess asked .
“He seemed to be interested in entering the Heaven Secrets Academy . However, if he were to know that his wife is in Divine Might Dynasty, I wonder if he’ll head there directly . ” Seventh Princess gave it some thought and said .
“Didn’t he say that he’ll come again after the wedding ceremony? There’s no more quota this year and he’ll have to wait till next year . If he wishes to enter—seeing how you’re so sincere—I can give him a quota . However, if he were not to accept it, then you can’t fault me for that . ” Eldest Princess looked at Seventh Princess . Seeing the hopeful gaze in the latter’s eyes, Eldest Princess could only sigh to herself .
“I know that Elder Sister is the best!” Seventh Princess grabbed Eldest Princess’ arm happily . When Eldest Princess was around, she was quiet and calm . It was only when she was with Eldest Princess that she appeared to be just like a little girl .
“This time around, will you be going back to Heaven Secrets Academy with me or with Jinyu?” Eldest Princess smiled and asked .
“I’ll join Jinyu . Sister is a busy person and I’m a more leisurely person . I will head back later . ” Seventh Princess chuckled and said .
Eldest Princess felt that her younger sister must have some other reason but the latter had already grown up and had her own freedom . Therefore, she neither said much nor did she make any guesses . There are somethings which one could only think through themselves .
Qing Shui and the little girl had already stayed in the mountain valley for over ten days . The girl’s cultivation had soared by leaps and bounds and Qing Shui knew that it was only during this period that her cultivation would grow so quickly . After some time, it would slow down . However, the rate of her progression should still be very much faster than ordinary
Within these ten or more days, the girl went through a tremendous change . The pernicious aura in her body had calmed down a lot and she could faintly control it . If it was required, she could unleash the pernicious aura in her body to a terrifying level . Usually, she would be able to keep it calmly in her body .
Of course, at the current moment, she was still unable to completely utilize it fully!
After more than ten days, Qing Shui could also be considered to have quite a good breakthrough . His Seal of Roc had reached the small success stage not too long ago .
The achievements he had made over these ten or more days was comparable to about three years of other people’s cultivation . Qing Shui stood in midair, forming seals with his hands, and a hint of a golden glow flashed on his body .
A loud and piercing shrill rang out and a huge roc appeared . This was something formed from the condensation of Qing Shui’s powers . It was glimmery gold and seemed material .
A powerful spiritual sense was unleashed from his consciousness and he locked it onto his target . It then dashed out toward the target, shining with a glittery golden light . It brought along with it a domineering and violent killing aura . It also formed the mysterious forces of the Heavenly Dao!
The prowess increased by one fold!
Qing Shui smiled . This was the result of the Seal of Roc reaching the small success stage . The attacking prowess increased by one fold and was considered a spirit energy attack . However, the depletion was huge . Thankfully, he could use it consecutively for a few times but it couldn’t be used over a long period of time .
When Qing Shui’s Seven-Seven Divine Nebula Formation was in effect, it could bring his strength to 35,000 nimbus . If he were to perform the Seal of Roc, his attacking prowess could almost reach 70,000 nimbus . If he could unleash the chance for his attacking prowess to be doubled, the prowess would be truly terrifying .
Qing Shui was very happy now . He was very satisfied to have such achievements . This was when the Seal of Roc was only at the small success stage . He wondered how strong it would be when it reached the large success stage . This could now be considered one of his killing techniques and it was very practical .
There were less than ten days until Yan Yangchi’s wedding and it was time to head back . Another thing was about that Eldest Princess . It seemed that he would still need to look for her to understand his own abilities .
Another thing was that he felt that Seventh Princess would ask Eldest Princess about Di Chen . He didn’t know if she had already asked . After packing up, he brought the girl back
The day that they went back, news of Yan Clan’s Eldest Young Master’s wedding had already spread far and wide . Moreover, the preparations were already in progress .
Not long after they had returned, Yan Yangchi and the others came by . Seventh Princess was here as well but not Fifth Princess . When they saw Qing Shui, they were very happy .
“Are you alright? Everyone was very worried since you left that day . ” Seventh Princess was the first one to speak upon seeing Qing Shui .
Yan Jinyu was stunned as well and made a weird face as she threw a glance toward Seventh Princess . However, she also asked how Qing Shui was .
“Aren’t I fine?” Qing Shui replied happily . No matter what, the few of them were still good friends . Between friends, sentiments were important .
It was only when the sentiment was present could one of them put it into action . If one didn’t even have the heart to, then everything else would be nothing .
Qing Shui had wanted to spread the reputation of the blacksmith store but it was a little hard . It wasn’t something which could be achieved within a short amount of time . Moreover, operating the blacksmith store wasn’t something which was sustainable in the long run . It could be used for self-amusement though . Additionally, there were limitations to what the blacksmith store could achieve .
After seeing how strong Eldest Princess was, Qing Shui felt that other than trying to get stronger, he also needed to have a better understanding of the world . Only by getting more exposure to other things would one then be able to raise the one’s state and thus allow one’s cultivation to advance even faster .
It was just like how, for a frog in a well, the state he was in would restrict the ability for him to progress . Only by knowing how big the world out there was, would one be able to smash the shackles binding them .
Right now, Qing Shui no longer wanted to rely on spreading the reputation of the blacksmith store . He wasn’t able to do so in terms of the time he had . One would be able to profit from having influential friends . Right now, he felt that there was a need for him to make such influential friends .
For example, it would be a good option if he could get himself the status of a member of the Heaven Secrets Academy . Before a person attacked another, he must first assess who was the one supporting the target . There should be no problems for him to enter the Heaven Secrets Academy and become an elite disciple . When that happens, the treatment he would receive would become even better .
“Qing Shui, you’re not angry with Elder Sister, right?” The group of them sat down in the hall and Seventh
“What on earth are you thinking? Why would I be angry? I even want to thank her . If it wasn’t for her, we’ll probably still be there . How could we possibly still be drinking tea and chatting here?” Qing Shui smiled and said .
“Oh, right . Qing Shui, I’ve asked my sister . Three years ago, she met your wife in the Divine Might Dynasty . However, she didn’t know what your wife was called and doesn’t know if she is still in Divine Might Dynasty now . ” Seventh Princess recalled this and quickly brought it up, not wanting to dwell too much on the previous topic .
Qing Shui shuddered . He had finally gotten news of Di Chen . It was good as long as she had appeared before . He knew that Eldest Princess knew because Seventh Princess must have brought out that portrait .
Hearing news of Di Chen still made Qing Shui feel quite agitated . It had been quite a while since he had heard news of her . Just this alone was sufficient to let Qing Shui be thankful .
“Thank you . I’m too happy to be able to hear her news . ” Qing Shui looked at Seventh Princess and thanked her seriously .
When Seventh Princess saw how happy Qing Shui was, she was both happy and disappointed . She didn’t know where her disappointment came from but that feeling left her feeling a little gloomy .
“Right, Qing Shui, do you still want to enter Heaven Secrets Academy?” Seventh Princess looked at Qing Shui . She felt that after hearing news of Di Chen, he might not want to enter the Heaven Secrets Academy anymore .
“I do . Could it be that Seventh Princess has a way?” Qing Shui knew that Seventh Princess must have a way since she had brought this up . Otherwise, she wouldn’t have said a word about this .
“I’ve spoken to my sister . There are no more slots for this year and you’ll have to wait till next year . Are you able to wait for a while?” Seventh Princess looked at Qing Shui and said .
“Of course . I don’t have any urgent matters to attend to for now either, and its good for me to stay around for half a year too . ” Qing Shui felt that it wasn’t a bad idea for it to be slightly delayed .
“Right, Brother Yan, when you’re having your wedding, will the people from Scarlet Flame Region still come and create and trouble?” Qing Shui looked toward Yan Yangchi .
“By right, they shouldn’t, unless they’ve gone out of their minds . However, we’ll still need to be careful . ” Yan Yangchi said casually . It seemed that there wouldn’t be too big of a problem .
“Help me thank your elder sister!” When they left, Qing Shui looked toward Seventh
“Mmm, I will . You don’t have to stand on ceremony so much either!” Seventh Princess waved and smiled then departed with the rest .
Another week passed by . Yan Yangchi’s wedding was to be held in two days . This time around, Yan Clan was having a wedding with a member of the royalty . In this world, there was an unspoken rule that those who were to marry a lady from the royal family would only have that single woman for his entire life .
This was a form of respect to the royal family . This was why, after learning that Qing Shui already had a wife, Eldest Princess had looked at Seventh Princess with some surprise .
In fact, it could also be because of this that Seventh Princess couldn’t make sense of her feelings . She didn’t even understand the feelings between her and Qing Shui, nor know if she liked him . Sometimes, humans can be very strange .
Qing Shui brought the girl along and appeared at Yan Clan . Many people had come, not only for Yan Clan, but for the royal family as well .
People who appeared here were all leaders of their own areas . They all wore smiles as they greeted and chatted . There were people from all age groups . There were also many young misses and madams who were nobles . They all wore extremely luxurious clothes while they sipped tea and chatted…
Qing Shui’s and the girl’s appearances attracted quite a lot of attention . The girl was too eye catching and she would stand out no matter where she went . Moreover, Qing Shui’s appearance was also quite eye catching . As he attracted the gazes of a number of ladies, he also attracted the hatred of some others .
“I thought that you wouldn’t dare to come . After the other time, you were nowhere to be seen . I hadn’t thought that you would still dare to appear . ”
Just then, an eccentric voice rang out . Qing Shui felt that it sounded a little familiar and soon knew who it was when he looked over .
It was the few people he had encountered when they headed to Rong City the other time . It was just that this time around, there was clearly more people .
“Look at that lass next to him . Why does she feel a little eerie? Why are you out here when you are so ugly that you look neither like a human nor a ghost…”
Before the person finished his words, Qing Shui lashed out with a slap across space, sending the person flying while spewing out teeth .
Today, the girl was dressed in all black . Moreover, she still exuded that aura . Although she had concealed quite a bit of the aura, it still gave off a slightly eerie feeling . Although she wasn’t ugly, she was still a little horrifying!
