AST 2474 – Nine Suns Domain, Divine Dragon’s Embryonic Form, Jade Brush
Qing Shui and the others were a little surprised, but the woman didn’t seem surprised. When she saw Qing Shui, she smiled and walked up to him. “Mister’s reputation can be said to be known by all in the Imperial City.”
“Is that so?” Qing Shui rubbed his nose.
“Mortal City’s He Clan is also considered a top-notch existence even in the Imperial City. It’s really difficult to be able to suppress them. Even if one is capable of doing so, they would also suffer great casualties on their end.
Qing Shui shook his head. “There are too many powerful existences that kept themselves hidden. Given Palace Mistress’ capabilities, you should be able to take them down to!”
The woman was stunned for a moment before she smiled. “To be honest, I can’t. I’m weak by myself and once I’m engaged in close combat, I’d be in danger.”
This took Qing Shui by surprise. This information revealed how powerful the woman was. There was some kind of Immortal Qi—similar to the one in Tantai Lingyan’s body—in hers as well. Qing Shui guessed that this was something one could get after reaching a certain level in their cultivation. He wasn’t really sure if this was true.
“Come, come, don’t just stand here. Everyone, come in!” The woman welcomed Qing Shui and the group in.
Other than the Immortal Painter Battle Goddess, there were ten or more people. Out of these people, the most outstanding one of them was the Divine Cudgel Battle God. He was a middle-aged man with a burly figure, and there was a petite woman next to him. The woman only appeared petite because she was standing next to the man.
The woman was also an alluring one with a curvy figure, looking like a mature but married young lady.
They were introduced as husband and wife—the Divine Cudgel Battle God and Flying Blade Battle Goddess.
When Qing Shui saw them, he was also amazed. If they were ordinary people, the man would probably crush the woman. However, the same concern wasn’t necessary for cultivators. Moreover, they could just do the riding or other positions anyway.
Qing Shui saw that this woman had seductive and watery eyes, clearly a person who was living a very nourished life. After taking another look at the Divine Cudgel Battle God, he knew that this man would have an astonishing stamina.
Tea was served. The several tens of people didn’t seem like a lot in this hall. At this moment, the Immortal Painter Battle Goddess smiled and looked toward Qing Shui. “Why don’t you take over the Divine Palace here?”
Qing Shui was stunned for a moment, then he shook his head. “I don’t have that capability. This Divine Palace can definitely be ranked amongst the top three of all Divine Palaces. Have you guys thought of heading to the Nine Suns Domain?”
The Immortal Painter Battle Goddess gave it some thought before shaking his head. “If there aren’t any accidents, we won’t be heading to the Nine Suns Domain. The world is so big. Although the Divine Palace might be considered strong here, once we get involved in the matters in the Nine Suns Domain, the Divine Palace would probably be wiped out.”
“By who?” Qing Shui asked.
“The Demon Gate, Nine Continents powers, as well as some unique existences. Even the Divine Palace wouldn’t allow us to head over.” The woman smiled and said.
Qing Shui’s heart skipped a beat. This woman must know many things. Moreover, it seemed that the Divine Palace in the Nine Suns Domain must have become a part of some clan. All the Battle Gods in the world were his, and there was probably no such thing as fair competition anymore…
On the road, Qing Shui had encountered quite a number of Divine Palaces, and some of them even gave up the command over to Qing Shui without him asking for it.
“I won’t be staying long here. I want to head to the Nine Suns Domain to take a look.” Qing Shui gave it some thought and said.
Qing Shui was definitely going to head to the Nine Suns Domain. Tantai Lingyan had already left. It wouldn’t be that easy for her to fight for the position of the Demon Gate’s sect master. The other party wouldn’t just give up the position to her just because of her Demon Saint Blood.
“I know. After seeing you, I know that you’ll definitely head to the Nine Suns Domain. Why don’t you bring us along?” The Immortal Painter Battle Goddess blinked her alluring eyes, sending ripples straight into Qing Shui’s heart.
Qing Shui had no idea if what the woman had said was the truth. Therefore, he smiled and answered, “If you guys really have this intention, then we can go together.”
“There’ll definitely be a very big matter that will occur, with there being both opportunities and dangers. Many people will head for the Nine Suns Domain, and there would also be many who leave the place to hide,” the Immortal Painter Battle Goddess said seriously.
“Regardless, I’ll definitely head to the Nine Suns Domain.” Qing Shui frowned. It seemed that things weren’t as simple as they seemed to be. However, there was no way that he would back off.
“How about this. I’ll bring along some people and head to the Nine Suns Domain together with you.” The Immortal Painter Battle Goddess looked at Qing Shui.
“That’ll be great.”
“Alright, that’s settled then. Old Bao, I’ll trouble you to take care of the Divine Palace in the future,” said the woman decisively.
A man with a long beard walked out, wearing a bitter expression. “Bring me along!”
“Although a large number of the Demon Sect’s members have left, you’re needed to take care of this place. I’ll still be coming back here in the future.” The Immortal Painter Battle Goddess had no hesitation at all.
Old Bao nodded helplessly. “Alright!”
One week later, Qing Shui’s group continued on their way. However, there were several tens of people that had joined in, including the Divine Cudgel Battle God, his wife, and the Mystic Turtle Battle God. The Mystic Turtle Battle God was the Battle God with the strongest defense that Qing Shui had encountered. The Mystic Turtle Battle God was tougher than diamond, but he had a flaw, having a weak attack. His strongest aspect was his defense.
Qing Shui liked his ability a lot. In addition to his own abilities, the Mystic Turtle Battle God was definitely like a cockroach, hard to kill.
There was also the Golden Saber Battle God. Qing Shui thought of the Dragon Saber Battle God who had grown old. His successor should be rising up soon, and this person would also be his sibling…
The Battle Gods who were with the Immortal Painter Battle Goddess had a lot more strength and experience compared to the ones who were with Qing Shui. The strongest of them was the Immortal Painter Battle Goddess. The Divine Cudgel Battle God’s strength—especially his attacking prowess—wouldn’t lose out to the Massacre Battle God either.
Nine Suns Domain!
The moment they stepped into the Nine Suns Domain, the noticed that this place was situated above an ocean domain, surrounded by a vast and endless stretch of seawater. Qing Shui would set up positions with the Five Elements Divine Flags as they went on the way, such as in the Nine Moons Domain’s Imperial City and the Nine Stars Domain’s Imperial Cuisine Hall. He only set up a position in the Central Continent out of its all five continents.
The nine suns in the sky formed a line and was really an impressive sight. However, the temperature here wasn’t scorching hot. Of course, there were many places in the Nine Suns Domain with high temperatures, and many treasures were also a result of there being nine suns.
An accident occurred on their way to the Nine Sun Domain. They were assaulted. However, the attackers were killed by Qing Shui’s group. Qing Shui felt a little uneasy about this, as one of the men killed had used the Nine-Mortal Steps.
Qing Shui had no idea if this person was from the He Clan or from some other places. That man was very strong and his martial arts were very similar to the He Clan’s, albeit more skillful. Qing Shui had encountered someone like the He Clan’s Old Ancestor already, so he felt that this guy wasn’t a member of the He Clan.
This person wasn’t from the He Clan yet had surpassed the He Clan. Qing Shui thought of that mortal who had left the Mortal City. After leaving the Mortal City, he could only have headed to the Nine Suns Domain.
Strong gales suddenly blew on the seas, sending soaring waves and terrifying whirlpools that could even create black holes within them. It was a horrifying sight.
An extremely black creature soared into the sky. It had a hideous head that was like that of a dragon yet not one. Its huge body was like that of a huge snake, but it had four claws and had horns on its head.
Qing Shui’s eyes lit up. This creature bore a 60% resemblance to the divine dragon, but it looked too ugly and its head wasn’t like a dragon’s. It emitted a terrifying aura and came down from the sky, turning its body and lashing out like a whip toward them.
The Immortal Painter Battle Goddess’ eyes lit up and something that was like a jade-colored brush appeared in her hand with a seething glow. With a tap, a series of jade-colored light spots connected onto the huge demonic beast like a line. When the line lit up, it suddenly became extremely bright.
The Immortal Painter Battle Goddess then rapidly drew with the jade brush. Her elegant figure moved smoothly like water with an indescribable charm and rhythm. This provided a visual impact and enjoyment to Qing Shui, in addition to a hint of agitation. He had a strong urge to embrace that beautiful figure and gave her a piece of himself.
