AST 2431 - The Fatty’s Decision, Nine Continents Mighty Spear Sect, Ling Chen
With just one strike, Qing Shui had killed the man in a mere second. Miraculous Physician Pang was stunned. He saw that Qing Shui and his company of people were all young, and the former was even a Physician. Besides, given his Nine Continents Medical Sect background, the Fatty was used to being arrogant and domineering. Now he realized the issue at hand wasn’t as funny anymore.
“Say, Fatty, what level is your medical skills at in Nine Continents Medical Sect? I had once believed they were really strong but now that I’ve seen you, I no longer think too highly of them.” Qing Shui was unusually relaxed now, as though he wasn’t the one who just slapped someone to their death.
“Don’t be too pleased with yourself. We are miraculous physician aristocrats. Our words have weight in Nine Continents Medical Sect. Just you wait. Nine Continents Medical Sect will come after you. As soon as we say the word, there will be numerous others coming to kill you. Do you know how many people owe Nine Continents Medical Sect favors?” Miraculous Physician Pang stared at Qing Shui and said haughtily.
Qing Shui knew about it. Nine Continents Medical Sect’s connections were nothing to scoff at. Qing Shui knew from before about how scary a Miraculous Physician’s capabilities were, which was why Qing Shui was prepared to go back on this path when he arrived at Upper Three Regions and use it in haste. Basing himself here would be a difficult feat.
Qing Shui frowned. He believed in Miraculous Physician Pang’s words and that Nine Continents Medical Sect would have this capability. No matter the Fatty’s medical skills, he knew that Nine Continents Medical Sect wasn’t quite as simple. The people who owed them favors were countless. As soon as they sent for someone to kill Qing Shui, they would be able to earn a survival chance with Nine Continents Medical Sect. Qing Shui anticipated that there would be many who would attempt to assassinate him.
Qing Shui watched the Fatty with a cold gaze. “You’re forcing me to kill you.”
The Fatty was startled, responding in surprise. “You dare to kill me?”
Qing Shui laughed. “You keep saying that you’re going to get someone to kill me, so why can’t I kill you? Unless you’re really that foolish? In any case, since you want to get someone to kill me, I might as well kill you right now.”
“Uh-hmm, I was just joking. If I wanted to kill you, would I have said it aloud? Am I that stupid? I was just scaring you.” The Fatty replied in haste.
Qing Shui laughed. He had no intentions of killing the Fatty. There was no need to create conflict with Nine Continents Medical Sect. Although he had killed one of them, it didn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things. After all, it was the Fatty at wrong here. They were asking for it.
“Heh, Fatty, don’t say I didn’t warn you. If you dare to provoke me, I would make sure you become a eunuch. Don’t worry, I won’t kill you.” Qing Shui held a sinister gaze at the Fatty.
Goosebumps rose from Qing Shui’s gaze. The Fatty felt incredibly creeped out and nodded his head quickly. “Don’t worry, that won’t happen…”
Fatty and his group of people left. Qing Shui couldn’t guarantee that he wouldn’t try anything, but he had to give others a chance. He gave the Fatty a chance this time around. Whether he knew how to treasure it was up to him.
Advancing further, there were still many people around them heading in but there were also some heading out. Those heading out were typically leaving the place.
“Miraculous Physician Pang, are we really letting them off like this?” A wretched man spoke up beside Miraculous Physician Pang.
“What can I do otherwise? The strongest man I had with me just got killed in a second.” The Fatty spoke in a bitter tone.
“You can look for Brother Chen! He is the top warrior among Ling Clan’s younger generation. His spear technique was rumored to have reached the peak. He’s the new generation leader of Nine Continents Mighty Spear Sect. Didn’t you save his life once? You can get him to kill those people and keep the women. Aren’t you tempted, Miraculous Physician Pang?” The man whispered.
If it was only the front portion that was conveyed, then the Fatty wouldn’t truly be tempted but at the mention of the women, he was swayed. The most striking point about him was that he was a pervert. When he laid eyes on the women around Qing Shui, the women around himself suddenly seemed too tacky. It was true that comparing yourself to others would only anger you and comparing your belongings would only result in you throwing them out.
“Can Ling Chen win against those people?” Miraculous Physician Pang’s cultivation wasn’t much so he asked unsurely.
“But of course. Nine Continents Mighty Spear Sect is a powerful existence and Ling Chen is their top warrior among the younger generation. He could be considered as an invincible force among warriors in general as well and he was already at Nurture God Realm. There is no one else in Nine Continents who have surpassed Nurture God Realm. What do you say? Isn’t Ling Chen strong? I’ve already mentioned that he would be the one to take over Nine Continents Mighty Spear Sect.” The man said, looking forward to the response.
Hearing his words, the Fatty felt a wave of happiness, but he was still in a dilemma. The appearance of those women kept floating into his mind. If he could have sexual relationships with those women then it would be worth it, even if his life was shortened.
“Alright, then let’s give it a try. Coincidentally, Ling Chen is in the deep end of Divinity Mountain. Let’s send someone to look for him.” The Fatty decided.
The man smiled gleefully, his wretched gaze held an equally wretched glint.
Qing Shui followed Dragon Slaying Beast and found a stalk of blood scarlet plan halfway up the mountain. It was an inch high. Among the plants, it looked like a drip of fresh blood.
Blood Poria’s greatest strength was in replenishing Qi and blood. It could replenish a great amount in record time and was a miraculous herb for those who were suffering through a huge blood loss. Besides this, Blood Poria could also be used in creating blood strengthening medicinal pills. Blood Strengthening Pills were used to strengthen a demonic beast’s blood, while Blood Poria could be used to make pills which can strengthen a human’s blood.
Hence, Blood Poria was beyond valuable. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call it a miraculous medicine and it was extremely rare. It took a long time to mature and was guarded by a demonic beast.
Blood Thread Snake!
Qing Shui noticed the demonic beast guarding Blood Poria quickly. It was three inches long, as thick as a little finger and was blood red in color, almost seemed to be brightly lit. In the middle of it, there was a line of red which looked like blood marrow.
This was a tiny snake, but it could be considered a demonic beast and a terrifying one at that. This Blood Thread Snake belonged to the venomous type of demonic beast. There were warriors in Peak Cave Realm poisoned to death by it, falling to its toxicity.
Blood Thread Snake was only three inches in length and the thickness of a little finger, but its hissing sound rumbled like thunder. Even rocks began to tumble at that.
With Qing Shui’s Heavenly Vision Technique, he watched Blood Thread Snake and realized a blood red pill in its body. It was very small but seemed to contain a horrifying power. Besides being venomous, its body was as tough as a boulder and had a mouth of minuscule teeth. Don’t look down on these millimeters-long teeth, as they were incisive and laced with poison.
Qing Shui struck Blood Thread Snake with Area Dominance. Poison-type beasts were typically afraid of this.
However, in this case, Area Dominance seemed to be ineffective.
Qing Shui lowered speed of Blood Thread Snake and seemingly at the same time, a jet of water sprayed towards Qing Shui. It was quick, way too quick.
With a shift of his mind, Nine Continents Mountain appeared before him, blocking the jet of toxin. The poison slid down from Nine Continents Mountain and turned the earth around it into ashes. It had even corroded the rocks on the mountain and dug small a bottomless hole…
What a strong toxin. Looking at Nine Continents Mountain, Qing Shui found a small hole. This was Nine Continents Mountain, a Martial Saint Treasure. It was fortunate that Nine Continents Mountain was not only strong but it could repair itself to perfection with time.
