“Are you properly supporting him?” Song Shuhang asked.
If he hadn’t properly supported Senior White, then it was indeed a great problem. Still, it was somewhat different from supporting an elderly person, as an even greater accident would happen if Senior White wasn’t supported properly…
“I’m supporting him, but something even bigger has taken place. Anyway, come here as quickly as you can. Heavens, enough chit-chat, just come quickly!” Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman said anxiously.
“Alright, I will be right there,” Song Shuhang said.
He was puzzled. If Senior White was properly supported, what else was there to worry about? As long as Senior White wasn’t going to suddenly stumble onto the ground, wouldn’t casually placing him somewhere be fine?
After hanging up, Song Shuhang rushed to the infirmary.
While running, he recalled his conversation with Senior Seven Lives Talisman—Senior White seemingly become distracted and then closed up?
It couldn’t possibly be…
Song Shuhang had a bad premonition.
If he was really closing up, was Senior White closing up for a short or long period of time?
If it was only for a short period of time, a few hours or something down that line, then it would be fine; however, if Venerable White had decided to close up for several years… then things no longer looked as good.
Song Shuhang had always been self-conscious.
He was soon going to face the heavenly tribulation of the Fourth Stage Realm, and it was best to have a senior come with him and ensure his safety. In the past, Su Clan’s Sixteen had failed to transcend her tribulation even though Su Clan’s Seven was accompanying her. If Song Shuhang were to face the tribulation alone, he would definitely die if a problem came up.
Under normal circumstances, Song Shuhang would have Venerable White by his side while facing his tribulation, who would ensure his safety. However, if Venerable White were to close up for a long time, when Shuhang’s tribulation arrived, whom should he look for to ensure his safety…?
Originally, Song Shuhang had two ‘golden thighs’ he could rely on to support him during his tribulation.
The first was his ghost spirit Ye Si, who was at the Fifth Stage Realm, and could help Song Shuhang during his heavenly tribulation.
The second was Venerable White, who was at the Seventh Stage Realm, and could destroy the heavenly tribulation if the latter decided to cheat.
But now, his two ‘golden thighs’ had gone and closed up.
In addition, he had just gotten two life talismans and the seed of the Seven Colors Wonder Fruit…
Song Shuhang wondered if he was going to face a great calamity soon.
At this time, he suddenly began to miss Senior Copper Trigram.
Song Shuhang ran to the infirmary, pushed the door open, and entered.
Afterward, he saw Senior Seven Lives Talisman holding a tablet and quickly swiping on it.
Song Shuhang saw that on the tablet was a great number of pictures of various fairy maidens.
Among them, there were several whom Song Shuhang was familiar with, such as Nine Provinces Number One Group’s Fairy Lychee, Fairy Dongfang Six, Fairy Firefly, Miss Riverly Purple Mist, and even Su Clan’s Sixteen and Soft Feather. There were also many female cultivators Song Shuhang couldn’t recognize; it seemed they were famous female cultivators in the cultivation world.
Why was Senior Seven Lives Talisman doing this?
Was he looking for a wife?
No, if he was looking for a wife, then why would there be a photo of Miss Riverly Purple Mist? Wasn’t Riverly Purple Mist already together with Medicine Master?
As Song Shuhang pondered, Senior Seven Lives Talisman continued to swipe the screen. Suddenly, a photo of ‘Venerable White’ wearing a phoenix crown and a phoenix robe came to view.
Senior Seven Lives Talisman burst into tears. “Which insidious guy hid this photo of Senior White in the group’s photo album?
The photo album seemed to be a shared hidden welfare folder in the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’. It was a collection of photos of the Nine Provinces Number One Group’s female cultivators, as well as those of famous female cultivators in the world of cultivation.
The owner of the folder seemed to have had an idea similar to that of True Monarch Yellow Mountain—it was to allow the fellow daoists in the group to flip through the album to strengthen their minds for when Venerable White came out of secluded meditation. Although this method might not actually work, several people believed in it.
Still, it was unknown which bastard had added Venerable White’s picture to the folder!
“Senior Seven Lives Talisman, what happened?”Song Shuhang asked.
After hearing Song Shuhang’s voice, Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman was able to recover a little.
He calmly lowered the tablet in his hand, and pointed at Venerable White, whom he now no longer dared to look directly at.
Song Shuhang looked at Venerable White, who was leaning against the chair.
Afterward, he discovered that today’s Venerable White was particularly eye-catching; something similar to a ‘glistening effect’ seemed to be surrounding his body—it was especially out of the ordinary.
“Is Senior White’s charm out of control?” Song Shuhang said.
“Yeah,” Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman said with melancholy. “One second earlier, we were discussing how to revise the tribulation-transcending formations. Then, in the next moment, he seemingly got lost in thought. After that, without me even knowing, he had entered a state of meditation. Subsequently, Venerable White’s charm spread uncontrollably.”
Fortunately, his draft of the tribulation-transcending formations had already been revised by Senior White, with the rest being something he could slowly improve by spending some time on it.
Song Shuhang stepped forward, and pushed Venerable White. “Senior White, wake up.”
But Venerable White showed no reaction at all.
After sighing, Song Shuhang took out a green ‘thousand mile sound transmitter’ flute and blew it.
True Monarch Yellow Mountain had given him this magical treasure back then when he was to welcome Venerable White, who was coming out of secluded meditation.
Later, Song Shuhang had often used it to test if ‘Venerable White’ was closing up, and to check how long he would stay in that state.
Soon, Venerable White’s gentle voice came from the green flute. “Buzz… Hello. This is the place where ‘White’ is closing up. I’ll be out in 27 days, 8 hours and 0 minutes; please wait patiently!”
“He is really closing up,” Song Shuhang ridiculed.
Fortunately, Venerable White was only closing up for a month.
With Song Shuhang’s current cultivation speed, his tribulation should take place later.
Since the preparation for the tribulation weren’t complete yet, Song Shuhang had only been tempering his body recently, and honing his various saber techniques and magical techniques.
His practice of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ was very controlled.
For others, it wasn’t a problem to delay their tribulation for a year or so. So, Song Shuhang felt that it shouldn’t be a problem for him to delay it for a month.
“He will be closing up for nearly a month. Little friend Shuhang, you should look for a secluded place for Senior White,” Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman said.
At the same time, he swept Song Shuhang with his gaze. Sure enough, little friend Shuhang’s resistance to Senior White’s charm was much higher than that of the other fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
At this time, he didn’t even dare look at Venerable White. On the other hand, Song Shuhang didn’t have such a problem—the only thing that Song Shuhang experienced was a slightly accelerated heartbeat, but besides that, everything else was normal.
Perhaps it wasn’t a coincidence that Venerable White had stayed with Song Shuhang for so many months after coming out of secluded meditation this time.
Song Shuhang said, “But, to which secluded place should I move Senior White for his meditation?”
Should he move him to the building that Medicine Master had bought? However, that place didn’t feel suitable for closing up. Moreover, it was in a residential area, making it so that it wasn’t good if Senior White were to cause trouble whilst closing up.
The Jade Lake Secret Realm was a good location, but it was too far away.
After his giving it some thought, Song Shuhang’s eyes suddenly lit up.
“I’ve got the answer!” Song Shuhang put the ‘thousand mile sound transmitter’ flute away. Then, he grabbed Senior White, and transferred him into his ‘Inner World’ with a thought.
“Buzz, buzz, buzz~”
As soon as Song Shuhang moved Venerable White into his Inner World, sword cries suddenly echoed from all directions.
Song Shuhang had a bad feeling.
He stretched out his hand, and took out his ‘invisible saber insect’.
Through the connection he had with the saber insect, he immediately understood what was going on—there were tens of invisible sword insects now roaming around the infirmary.
Meanwhile, there were over 900 more invisible sword insects outside the school building. The insects were anxious due to the disappearance of the aura of their master, Venerable White.
“Heavens,” Song Shuhang said. “Senior Seven Lives Talisman, do you have a talisman treasure that can make ‘invisible sword insects’ visible?”
“There is no such thing in the world,” Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman said. Shiet, he only now found out that Venerable White had so many invisible sword insects by his side, scary.
Therefore, Song Shuhang took Venerable White out his ‘Inner World’.
To deal with the invisible sword insects, it was necessary to bring back Venerable White first. Otherwise, if the thousand invisible sword insects became restless and caused a ruckus, it was going to be very troublesome.
After their sensing Venerable White’s presence, the thousand invisible sword insects calmed down.
Shuhang pondered for a moment, and said while propping up Venerable White with one hand, “All of you listen well, I will send Senior White to a secluded place. Tell your companions to orderly get into a range of three meters from Venerable White. I’ll also try to move you guys to that secluded place in batches so that you can stay together with him.”
The level of intelligence of the invisible sword insects wasn’t low, so they should be able to understand his words just fine.
“Buzz, buzz, buzz~” the sword insects cried out in a low voice in the sky.
In the next moment, Song Shuhang issued a mental order, trying to move all the ‘living organisms’ in a range of three meters from Venerable White to his Inner World.
He was unsure if he could move these invisible sword insect to his Inner World. After all, he could neither see them nor sense their presence.
However… he’d succeeded.
After his mental order, all the invisible sword insects in a range of three meters from Venerable White were moved to his Inner World.
What surprised Song Shuhang was that he could see these invisible sword insects after they had been moved to his Inner World.
The Inner World was a world that belonged exclusively to Song Shuhang, and nothing there could escape his eyes.
Thereupon… Song Shuhang moved the thousand invisible sword insects to his Inner World in batches.
Afterward, he also sent Venerable White to his Inner World.
In the Inner World, beside the living spring.
Venerable White instinctively sat cross-legged while the thousand invisible sword insects protected him, surrounding him and not letting anyone get close to him.
After settling this matter, Song Shuhang heaved a sigh of relief.
But another problem came next…
Since Venerable White had decided to suddenly close up, who would help him bail out that ‘young girl’ that Daoist Priest Horizon had seized?
He needed the help of that girl if he wanted his tailor-made tribulation-transcending formations!
“Senior Seven Lives Talisman, do you happen to know Daoist Priest Horizon’s current location?” Song Shuhang asked expectantly.
Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman shook his head.
“Heavens, how unlucky!” Song Shuhang sighed.
