Song Shuhang, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, and Shi finally arrived where Daoist Priest Horizon was temporarily residing at, the daoist temple of Jiangnan area.
Just as they landed at the daoist temple, and were preparing to disembark from the immortal boat, they heard several little daoist priests in the daoist temple whispering in low voices.
“Hehehe, have you guys seen that the high daoist called ‘Horizon’, who came to our daoist temple a few days back, brought back a young girl today? I heard the senior brothers say that the young girl was struggling for her life along the way. Hehehe,” a chubby little daoist priest said in a hushed voice.
Another daoist priest who was also slightly chubby and somewhat short revealed an ‘understanding’ look on his face. “Hehehe, high daoists are probably more hungry and thirsty than we are. Was the young girl he captured beautiful?”
A daoist priest who was sweeping the floor approached, and said, “Definitely beautiful. Hehehe, I saw the girl with my own eyes earlier, slightly curly hair, small face, and a first-class figure. She was even more beautiful than those female stars and celebrities we see on the Internet. Moreover, that girl had an unspeakable temperament, bewitching and also ruthless.”
“Nevertheless, I didn’t expect the white-haired Daoist Priest Horizon would still be this energetic at his age. Hehehe.”
“Hehehehe.” The group of small daoist priests was weirdly laughing together.
Song Shuhang swept the body of those daoist priests with his mental energy, and found that they were only ordinary people, and not cultivators. As such, was Daoist Priest Horizon temporarily borrowing this daoist temple?
These daoist priests were just ordinary people, so they wouldn’t know the affairs of the ‘world of cultivators’.
Therefore, after they saw an old daoist priest with white hair forcefully dragging a young girl into the depths of the daoist temple… the only thing that naturally came to their minds was [R-18] content.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue suggested, “I think that it would be better to look for Daoist Priest Horizon while we are invisible.”
If they were to reveal their appearance and ask where Daoist Priest Horizon was, who knew what messed up stuff these damned daoist priests would think.
Song Shuhang replied, “Me too.”
Shi echoed, “Me three.”
Consequently, after properly stopping the immortal boat, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue used a magical technique to envelop Song Shuhang and Shi. The three suppressed their aura, and stayed in invisible mode as they went to Daoist Priest Horizon’s room.
Inside Daoist Priest Horizon’s room, it was very quiet. There wasn’t a single audible sound.
“There is a soundproof formation,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said. She then stretched out her hand, and proceeded to open the door to the room.
…The door was locked, but the spiritual energy in Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s hand revolved, and easily opened the ordinary door.
As soon as the door was opened, a pleasant singing voice could be heard within the room.
[Happy sheep, beautiful sheep, lazy sheep, boiling sheep~ Slow sheep, soft sheep, red wolf, gray wolf~ Don’t underestimate me just because I’m a mere sheep~ This little sheep’s cleverness is beyond your imagination~]
The girl with naturally curly hair was singing. Her voice was indeed very pleasant, but the lyrics…
What shocked Immortal Bie Xue and Song Shuhang even more was Daoist Priest Horizon—both his hands were raised in a V-sign gesture and placed beside his temples. As if that wasn’t enough, his head was also swaying side to side together with the singing of the naturally curly-haired young girl.
The scene simply burned their eyes!
After hearing the sound of the door being opened, Daoist Priest Horizon and the naturally curly-haired young girl both turned their heads to look at the door.
The naturally curly-haired young girl giggled, but didn’t stop singing; she continued to sing the brainwashing song.
Daoist Priest Horizon’s face paled, with his eyes clearly showing he was flustered.
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to disturb you. I’ll knock on the door before entering next time,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue apologized. Then, she conveniently shut the door as she said, “You continue, Song Shuhang and I will wait outside.”
“W-wait a minute, Fellow Daoist Bie Xue, you misunderstood!” Daoist Priest Horizon called out.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue quietly closed the door and turned, moving to a corner together with Song Shuhang.
“Was that thing just now some kind of popular embarrassing game?” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue asked. Due to her usually intensively studying cooking, she hadn’t been able to keep up with the ever-changing trends in the current era.
“I’ve never heard of a similar game,” Song Shuhang said. “But, Senior Bie Xue, when entering another person’s room next time, it’s best to knock first so as to avoid similar embarrassment.”
“Mm-hm.” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue nodded silently.
Right at this time, the door opened once again. Daoist Priest Horizon gritted his teeth as he said, “Come in. I’ll explain to you what was going on, just now was truly a misunderstanding.”
Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up, and then he asked, “Could it be that the female cultivator inside was using a sound wave-type magical technique?” He recalled Fairy Dongfang Six’s ❮Nine Bewitching Dance Steps❯, and it seemed to have a similar effect.
“No, it’s not that mystical.” Doaist Priest Horizon shook his head, and said, “We were playing cards just now, and the loser was going to do whatever the winner told them to do, and I just happened to lose a moment ago.”
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue smiled slightly, and said, “Then, she started singing, and you started doing a sheep dance?”
“Yes, that’s what happened,” Daoist Priest Horizon said.
“…” Song Shuhang.
“Don’t worry, Horizon, I believe you,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said. “After all, we’ve been friends for many years.”
The corners of Daoist Priest Horizon’s mouth twitched. Then, he looked at Song Shuhang. “Fellow Daoist Song, how do you have the time to come look for me? By the way, how’s that onion monster you were raising?”
“Lady Onion is well,” Song Shuhang answered. Lady Onion’s daily life was great. Since after merging with the enlightenment stone, her comprehension had increased greatly, and her strength had advanced by leaps and bounds.
In addition, Song Shuhang had a lot of medicinal pills at hand. For example, among that big gift that the fellow daoists of the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ had given him at the beginning, there were cultivation-aiding pills such as the Starry True Qi Refining Pill 6S edition. The Starry True Qi Refining Pill was a medicinal pill to be used in the Second Stage Realm; it would enhance the overall effects of one’s training, allowing the practice to be twice as effective with half the effort.
Song Shuhang had advanced too quickly, and had reached the Third Stage Realm after using only a bunch of those medicinal pills. As such, these medicinal pills were now for Lady Onion’s exclusive use.
To be honest, other than the lack of freedom, Lady Onion’s current situation was no worse than that of the direct disciples in the big sects.
No shortage of medicinal pills, and they were top-grade pills on top of that. No shortage of cultivation techniques, with the ❮Tome of Never-Ending Tears❯ being enough for her to reach the Sixth Stage Realm. As for cultivation experience, she could just watch Song Shuhang’s cultivation process from time to time. Meanwhile, if she was bored and had nothing to do, she could just look at the phone.
“Anyway, I was looking for Senior Horizon to bail her out.” Song Shuhang pointed at the young girl with naturally curly hair.
“You’re Song Shuhang?” The naturally curly-haired young girl heard his words, and her eyebrows rose.
“Yes,” Song Shuhang said. “Are you the person that Senior Demon Monarch Nirvana sent here?”
The naturally curly-haired young girl was clearly not demon Monarch Nirvana, as she was only at the Third Stage ‘First Meridian’ Realm.
“Yes, I am his disciple.” The naturally curly-haired young girl stood up, greeted Song Shuhang, and said, “I’m Demon Monarch’s 18th disciple, ‘Dulan’. I love to ride horses and sing for dancers, but do not like to dance myself.”
What a novel hobby…
“Senior Horizon, how many spirit stones will it take to bail her out?” Song Shuhang asked.
Daoist Priest Horizon said, “Since you’re an acquaintance, it’s fine. However, I spent five Fifth Stage spirit stones this time to clear out the smog at Jiangnan University Town, which you will need to compensate me for.”
“Deal.” Song Shuhang nodded his head, and then took out five spirit stones of the Fifth Stage, handing them over to Daoist Priest Horizon.
After all, the money would be later compensated by the naturally curly-haired young girl ‘Dulan’. If she couldn’t afford it, her teacher, Demon Monarch Nirvana, would pay for it, so there was nothing to worry about.
After handing over the spirit stones, Dulan regained her freedom.
“What time is it right now?” Dulan asked aloud.
“According to Beijing’s time, it’s almost eleven o’clock,” Song Shuhang answered.
“There is still time then. I originally booked my flight ticket for 4 PM. Nevertheless, since that smog bomb blew up, I’ll need to make another trip to get a new sample, and it will take me some time.” Dulan thought for a while, and then said, “As such, I’m a little in a hurry. Fellow Daoist Song, stand still and don’t conceal your strength. Let me gather your data and send it to my teacher. Then, according to the data, Teacher will prepare a suitable tribulation-transcending formation for you.”
“Doesn’t the demon monarch have to come himself?” Song Shuhang asked—he had also wanted to talk to Demon Monarch Nirvana about the ‘modernization of the heavenly tribulation’.
“Teacher will come to the Jiangnan area in a few days. At that time, he will tailor a tribulation-transcending formation for you. But before that, he needs to know your data beforehand so that he can prepare,” Dulan said.
Then, she took out a mirror-like magical treasure from her pocket, and pointed it at Song Shuhang.
A layer of green light flashed in the mirror, and Song Shuhang was wrapped within.
The mirror-like magical treasure collected all the information related to the properties of Song Shuhang’s body, his cultivation realm, and the strength of his constitution.
This information was by no means secret. If one was a powerful cultivator, they could gather such information just by looking at Song Shuhang.
After the data was collected, Dulan stretched out her hand and tapped on the mirror-like magical treasure.
Then, a figure in a ‘hazmat suit’ appeared in the mirror.
“Hello? Oh, it’s Dulan. Have you met with little friend Song?” The man in the hazmat suit waved his hand. He was holding a tablet in his hand—he was currently using the tablet to make a video call with Dulan through the mirror-like magical treasure.
There was no mistaking, it was a video call between a tablet and a mirror.
“I’ve already met with Fellow Daoist Song. Teacher, I already collected his basic data, and will send it to you now. Besides that, do you have any other questions you want to ask him?” After Dulan finished speaking, she flipped the mirror and pointed it at Song Shuhang.
The man in the hazmat suit was obviously this girl’s teacher, Demon Monarch Nirvana.
“Yo, little friend Song. The data of your body is not bad, especially the strength of your constitution—it’s already at the Fourth Stage Realm. If this is the case, you should be able to safely transcend your tribulation.” Demon Monarch Nirvana swiped on the tablet, then said, “I’ll first prepare a draft of your tribulation-transcending formation and let you familiarize with it. The draft should be ready by tomorrow morning.”
“Alright,” Song Shuhang said. “In addition, Senior Nirvana… there was something I wished to discuss with you regarding the heavenly tribulation.
