How refreshing, what kind of offensive magical technique is this for it to actually make my entire body feel this comfortable and refreshed?
Could it be that it’s some sort of magical technique that makes you so comfortable that you die?
“Aaaaaah!” At this moment, the crazed True Monarch White Crane in front of him shouted in a lovely voice. The white wings on its back kept flapping, and with every single flap, a small magical technique would be cast, falling on Song Shuhang’s body.
When the magical techniques fell on his body, the virtuous lamia did not block them, letting them reach Song Shuhang. Without exception, every single magical technique that fell on Song Shuhang’s body made him feel extremely refreshed.
Song Shuhang finally understood—what True Monarch White Crane was throwing at him weren’t offensive magical techniques. Rather, they were healing techniques. Moreover, they were very high-quality healing techniques.
True Monarch White Crane was a well-known healing master in the Western world of cultivators. Its had the ‘light’ attribute, and it had learned ordinary healing techniques to perfection.
A series of healing techniques was released. Song Shuhang felt refreshed, his body feeling as if it was filling up with strength.
“Aaaah!” The crazed True Monarch White, who was in front of him, did not stop. It continued to release healing techniques one after the other, casting them faster and faster.
A moment later, Song Shuhang was enveloped in the radiance of healing techniques.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Although these healing techniques weren’t meant to cause any harm, could receiving so many of them at once cause him any problem?
Song Shuhang had read his fair share of novels. In many of these books were things that were similar to healing techniques, and many of those books defined healing techniques as something that sped up one’s metabolism, which would then create the healing effect. In the end, novels were just novels and had nothing to do with cultivation… but if the healing techniques of cultivators also sped up one’s metabolism, receiving so many of them might indeed cause him some problems.
Therefore, Song Shuhang brought out his phone, and reentered the Nine Provinces Number One Group’s page to ask his seniors about the problem concerning healing techniques.
At this time, the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ was very lively.
It was mainly due to the message that Song Shuhang had sent before—it had attracted the attention of many seniors.
True Monarch Northern River: “White Crane went mad? How did it go mad? Little friend Shuhang, did you provoke it? However, White Crane is already at the Sixth Stage Realm, and it won’t be easy to make it faint.”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Shuhang is only at the Third Stage Realm right now, how can he even make White Crane faint?”
Fairy Dongfang Six: “Wait, something isn’t right. I’m currently close to the Jiangnan area, and there seems to the aura of the evil energy of the Netherworld where little friend Shuhang’s at. White Crane couldn’t have gone mad due to the evil energy of the Netherworld, could he? I will go and have a look.”
True Monarch Northern River: “Right, what about Senior White? Isn’t he with Song Shuhang?”
Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman: “Venerable White is closing up. He closed up yesterday, and it seems like he won’t be coming out for a month. Heavens, little friend Shuhang is done for. I will hurry over, I’m also quite near Jiangnan University Town.”
Great Master Profound Principle: “⏱”
“It’s already been more than 40 seconds since little friend Shuhang has sent his message for help,” Medicine Master replied.
Great Master Profound Principle: “🤷♂️”
“40 seconds? If White Crane has really gone mad, little friend Shuhang might have already been reduced to pieces. @Tyrannical Saber Song One, are you still alive? Please reply,” Fairy Firefly said.
“Ugh, don’t jinx it. Little friend Tyrannical Saber still has some life-preserving measures. After all, he’s someone that has been able to survive next to Venerable White for a long time, so he should be able to hold on. Fairy Dongfang Six, Fellow Daoist Seven Lives Talisman, you guys should make haste. If you’re too late, you might only be able to collect little friend Shuhang’s corpse.”
“There’s no use in me making haste, I’m still only at the Fourth Stage Realm. If True Monarch White Crane has already gone mad, there’s nothing that I can do for little friend Shuhang,” Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman said. “Moreover, you guys don’t need to worry, little friend Shuhang won’t die. As long as he isn’t completely destroyed by True Monarch White in one move, he will be fine.”
“One minute, little friend Shuhang still hasn’t replied.”
True Monarch Northern River: “Right, doesn’t little friend Shuhang still have that special ghost spirit of the Fifth Stage protecting him? With her protection, little friend Shuhang shouldn’t have a problem surviving for a minute.”
Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman: “That ghost spirit miss seems to have encountered something the other day, she left already.”
True Monarch Northern River: “…”
At this time, Song Shuhang finally went online.
Song Shuhang: “Thanks for your concern, Seniors. Anyway, there isn’t any big problem right now. Before True Monarch White Crane went mad, it cast a binding spell on itself. Now, I’ve got a new problem––is it dangerous to receive too many healing techniques? It’s really urgent, the crazed True Monarch White Crane is continuously attacking me with ‘healing techniques’, ten times in a second, 600 times in a minute. I’m currently completely enveloped in the radiance of healing techniques.”
True Monarch Northern River: “…”
Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman: “…”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “…”
Fairy Lychee: “What can I say… this is really True Monarch White Crane’s style, right? It really suits its style. After all, It’s always played the role of an ‘angel’ in the Western world of cultivation.”
Medicine Master said, “If it’s about healing techniques, it shouldn’t cause your body any problem, especially since these are True Fungus White Crane’s healing techniques—the effect should be pretty good. It basically uses spiritual energy to temper the body of the [receiver], and it can even strengthen one’s body to an extent. However, the effect is very small, and even a thousand uses can’t compare with one round of your ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯. But rest assured, even if you were to receive ten thousand healing techniques, there are only advantages, and no disadvantages. If you were to take this opportunity to practice your body tempering techniques, the effect wouldn’t be bad. Body tempering technique + healing technique, a good combination.”
Medicine Master’s speed when it came to sending messages had increased by leaps and bounds recently… but it wasn’t due to his typing speed increasing. Ever since they had gotten married, Purple Mist had downloaded an input method that could convert voice into text for him. This software, which wasn’t available on the market yet and had been developed by an anonymous cultivator, had a high recognition rate, and only made a few mistakes. It was just that some special terms of the world of cultivators weren’t that easy to recognize. As such, it wasn’t uncommon to confuse ‘True Monarch’ with ‘True Fungus’ since they had the same pronunciation.
However, the suddenly fast messaging Medicine Master would still disorient the fellow daoists in the chat group every once in a while.
“Got it. Thanks, Senior Medicine Master. Now I can rest assured,” Song Shuhang replied.
Healing technique + body tempering technique can bring about additional effects? Then why don’t I give it a try?
No, wait. There is still another big problem.
True Monarch White Crane’s binding technique was timed… If it were to suddenly stop working, True Monarch White Crane would really go mad and attack him.
Song Shuhang hurried back to the group, and said, ” @Dongfang Six, @Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman, Seniors, when will you be able to get here? True Monarch White Crane’s binding technique is timed, and will disappear as soon as the time runs out. Seniors, please come quickly and save me.”
“What? Didn’t you just say that everything was fine just now? So, I turned around and headed home. My flying speed is very high, and I’m about to get back home after turning around,” Fairy Dongfang Six said.
Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman: “Just now, I also turned around.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
“Wait, I will try to turn around again. My current speed is too high for me to brake,” Fairy Dongfang Six said.
Song Shuhang: “😭 Thank you, Fairy Dongfang Six.”
Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman: “How long will the binding technique still last?”
Song Shuhang: “I don’t know. I only know that it’s called ‘binding spell’, it’s also my first time seeing it. When I called for help the first time, True Monarch White Crane’s spell had already taken effect.”
This thing didn’t come with a timer function, so Song Shuhang didn’t know how long it would last.
“Binding spell? In that case, there shouldn’t be a problem. That thing can last a long time. It looks like True Monarch White Crane already knew that it might go crazy when it headed to your place, and prepared for it,” Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman said. “Just wait a bit, I will be right there.”
“I will also be there in a minute,” Fairy Dongfang Six said.
Song Shuhang kept the chat window open. After thinking about it, he took out a piece of white paper and that scholarly treasure of the Third Stage, the ‘Heaven and Earth Worshipping Brush’. He then began to practice the ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯, and silently write the ❮Righteous Body Tempering Poem❯.
Even with Song Shuhang’s strength, when writing the ❮Righteous Body Tempering Poem❯, he exhausted all of his energy in just a few breaths. It was thanks to having mastered the ❮Steel Hands Technique❯ that he could hold on and finish writing the ❮Righteous Body Tempering Poem❯ even after becoming exhausted.
Right now, Song Shuhang would consume a part of his energy with every character he wrote. At the same time, ten or more healing techniques would hit him from behind every second, making up for the consumption.
With that, the body tempering effect just got better.
“This is simply cheating,” Song Shuhang said.
With the help of True Monarch White Crane’s spam of healing technique, the speed at which Song Shuhang was writing the ❮Righteous Body Tempering Poem❯ continued to increase.
Although every character he wrote required more and more energy together with the feeling of weakness multiplying, the ten plus healing technique per second were able to completely supplement Song Shuhang’s energy consumption.
By the time Palace Master Seven Lives Talismans and Fairy Dongfang Six arrived, Song Shuhang had already finished writing ❮Righteous Body Tempering Poem❯ once!
In the next moment, all the characters written on the white paper disappeared. But before they disappeared, a stream of scholarly ‘righteous energy’ entered Song Shuhang’s body.
Song Shuhang’s physique quickly improved by a small bit. At this moment, the strength of his physique had risen from the [just reached the Fourth Stage] level to the [steadily in the Fourth Stage] level.
However, Song Shuhang’s face became stiff.
The scholarly ‘righteous energy’ that had just flowed into him did not only enhance his physique, but also gave him some additional benefits.
The time, not only did the strength of his physique improve, but the amount of ‘liquefied true qi’ in Song Shuhang’s body also increased by a bit.
How did this happen?
Wasn’t the ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯ a body tempering technique? Why would it also strengthen one’s true qi?
Could it be that it was some additional benefit he had gotten after practicing the ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯ while getting bombarded with those healing techniques?
Tears streamed down Song Shuhang’s face.
Although his true qi only increased by a small fraction, he had taken a big step toward the heavenly tribulation!
