Shui Qiu’s dribbling and collision activated Tang Xin’s memories of her past life.
The immortal of autumn water, she was a terrifying figure spoken of by everyone, capable of instilling fear in people just by hearing her name.
Legend has it that she once ventured alone into the demon pool, and within half a day, she slaughtered over a thousand demon cultivators, causing the mountain of demons to flow with blood, and the stench of blood lingered in the air for years.
Some tried to use the terrain, formations, and even large armies to stop her attack, but they were all swallowed up by the towering waves that appeared out of nowhere, which was a truly horrifying sight.
If you were to describe the characteristics of the immortal of autumn water in four words, it would be… she has a lot of water.
Shui Qiu possesses the rare pure water physique in the cultivation world. If the average sect disciple’s affinity for water attribute spiritual energy is twenty percent, hers is ninety-nine percent, close to one hundred percent.
It is well known that the more “pure” the attribute physique, the more demanding it is for cultivators in terms of techniques, environment, and even guidance, all of which are indispensable.
In Qianyu city, at the inn…
“I don’t know why Elder Xuanmiao took me as his disciple,” Shui Qiu sat upright on the ground, head bowed, lacking any confidence. “I’ve already reached the fifth level of Qi Refining, but I can’t even use a fireball technique properly…”
Shui Qiu hails from a small cultivation family in the southern part of Qingzhou. The highest cultivation level in the family is only Foundation Building, and the main cultivation method is fire attribute techniques.
Half a year ago, she left the family to gain experience.
It’s not quite accurate to say “gain experience,” but rather, it should be “ran away from home,” because the patriarch felt that she had no hope in cultivation and wanted her to marry the legitimate eldest son of another cultivation family to fulfil a marriage alliance pact.
Although she was a “waste” who couldn’t even release a fireball technique at the fifth level of Qi Refining, her appearance still has great utility.
Who could refuse a beautiful girl who is easy to bully, tender, and well-endowed?
“To cultivate to the fifth level of Qi Refining with a mutually repelling attribute technique…”
Tang Xin sat on the edge of the bed, arms crossed, scrutinizing the girl in front of her.
For an ordinary person, let alone cultivation, they probably wouldn’t even be able to touch the threshold of Qi Refining.
Mutually repelling attributes were extremely dangerous during cultivation, with the probability of spontaneous combustion and demonic possession increasing by more than a hundredfold.
On a pure water physique, the situation is even more severe.
The current condition of Shui Qiu’s body was like putting gunpowder and flint in the same bucket. With just some slight carelessness, a single jolt could cause it to explode.
Elder Xuan Miao must have seen her constitution and wanted to bring her into the Xuanling Sect. As for why she didn’t help her solve the problem at hand…
Is this little matter worth making the busy Elder remember?
【Main Quest Trigger: Help Shui Qiu balance her internal true qi.】
【Current Main Quest: As the chief of the Xuanling Sect, one cannot ignore the difficulties encountered by the talented cultivator who is about to become a junior sister. Help Shui Qiu balance the true qi in her body and guide the orderly discharge of fire attribute true qi.】
Damn it… can’t it be described properly?
【Main Quest Reward: One Celestial Clear Eye Pill.】
【Celestial Clear Eye Pill: After taking it, your eyes will always remain in the best condition, bright and attractive.】
Aren’t 2D characters supposed to have this effect naturally? Do they really need to rely on pills to maintain it?
But this reward does look good. As the saying goes, the eyes are the windows of the soul. If I can have “bright eyes” at all times, I should be able to leave a positive impression on the junior disciples of the Xuanling Sect, right?
But discharging fire attribute true qi…
Ask the person involved first.
“Shui Qiu,” Tang Xin patted the shoulder of the blue-eyed girl, “actually…”
She briefly described the situation of the little girl.
“What?!” Shui Qiu widened her watery eyes, shocked, “So I’m not useless? I’m not the kind of person who can never reach the threshold of Foundation Building and can only be a cauldron for the seniors for the rest of my life?”
“Why do you think you’re useless?” Tang Xin asked in confusion, “You should be the one most aware of the abnormality in your constitution.”
“Sometimes I feel that it’s much more difficult for me to cultivate fire attribute techniques than others,” Shui Qiu said softly, “but the people around me all say I’m useless, and I feel that way too…”
A naive and weak girl, no wonder she becomes so powerful when she darkens later on…
“Then, from now on, abandon what you’ve heard before,” Tang Xin said, “listen to me, you are a genius!”
She emphasized each word.
“Am I a genius?”
Shui Qiu still seemed half doubtful.
“Yes, you are a genius,” Tang Xin continued, “Your pure water constitution has been disturbed by the fire attribute true qi. Right now, we need to find a way to alleviate this problem.”
“Listen to Senior Sister,” Shui Qiu responded with a soft voice, “But how can we alleviate it?”
【Option One: Push Shui Qiu down on the bed and then do unspeakable things, alleviating the fire level by ninety-nine percent.】
【Success rate ninety-nine percent, reward talent of Sacred Fire Body, failure results in no reward, with a one percent chance of self-ignition.】
【Sacred Fire Body: One of the most powerful fire attribute talents. Self-ignition: Refers to the accumulation of too much fire attribute true qi in the body, requiring someone else’s help to alleviate it, otherwise the body will catch fire.】
Then the fire attribute will return to the other person, and the cycle continues indefinitely, right?
【Option Two: Command Shui Qiu to push y0u down on the bed, unleash desires, and do whatever she wants, alleviating the fire level by eighty percent.】
【Success rate ninety-nine percent, reward doubling of proficiency in all fire attribute martial arts, failure results in a twenty percent increase in proficiency.】
There’s still a reward for failure? And it’s a legitimate reward? Is this for real?
【Option Three: Have Shui Qiu sit in front of you, with hands on her shoulders, absorbing the fire attribute true qi from her body, alleviating the fire level by fifty percent.】
【Success rate one hundred percent, reward of a ‘Coward’s Mask’.】
【Coward’s Mask: Just a regular mask, specifically for use by cowards without courage.】
Damn, is Option Three deliberately mocking people?
I can’t stand this…
“Shui Qiu,” Tang Xin asked the person involved, “Do you want to unleash your desires?”
The girl with blue eyes tilted her head, seeming to completely not understand the meaning of her words.
“It means doing something that makes people feel very happy…”
“Is senior sister talking about taking a bath?” Shui Qiu’s eyes lit up. “When I was still in my family, I could only feel true happiness every time I took a bath… I love it when there’s water all around me the most!”
Why does such a pure sentence always sound a bit off…
Looking at the girl’s innocent eyes, Tang Xin hesitated for a while, but ultimately gave up.
“Take off your outer clothes and come to bed with senior sister,” she said with a deadpan expression. “Let senior sister help you relieve your tension…”
