Chapter 1054: Taking a head with a saber from a thousand miles away, with the long journey to retrieve the treasured saber beginning Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu


Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “I originally wanted to put a four-meter-long saber, but since I only had a hammer, I went with it. In order to make up for it, I added some lightning onto it. Unfortunately, little friend Soft Feather isn’t online; otherwise, the photo after being edited would definitely look even better with her skills. Generally speaking, this is how I picture the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ in my mind.” Frice Reckless Mad Saber sent the message, satisfied.

Wandering Monk Profound Principle: “👍🏼”

Fairy Lychee: “Although I feel like Thrice Reckless is someone who really likes to seek death, when looking at this photo, I can’t stop myself from laughing.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Same here. I feel a little sorry for little friend Shuhang, but… the photo really matches how the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ should look. It feels great, ahaha.”

True Monarch Northern River: “This look and shape feel rather familiar, where have I seen it before?”

“I just edited the photo randomly; if it looks similar to something else, then it’s purely a coincidence,” Frice Reckless Mad Saber said.

Tyrannical Saber Song One: “👋🏼 Fairy Lychee, Senior Phoenix Slayer, Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber, our friendship is over. In all honesty, you guys must be just jealous of how good I look. By the way, Senior Phoenix Slayer, I’ve learned a lot of skills recently… what time will you be coming by tomorrow? If you come early, you can lend me your CPU. I want to see if I can reach the master level in both the saber riding and saber controlling techniques. When the time comes, I would be able to control a saber and take the head of an enemy from a thousand miles away. It feels great just thinking about it.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “…” F*ck, I almost forgot I still owe Song Shuhang three usages of my CPU. Ugh, CPU my ass! It’s my innate ability, I’m not some kind of computer. Every time Song Shuhang brings up this topic, he always ends up infecting me.

“Also, Senior Phoenix Slayer, you should advance at a faster pace, alright?” Song Shuhang said seriously. “See, I’m already at the Fourth Stage Realm now. In a few years or maybe a few decades, when I’ve already ascended to the Fifth Stage Realm, it will be meaningless to borrow your CPU.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “👋🏼 End of friendship!” Heavens, all the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group have already given up hope comparing themselves to your practice speed, alright?

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “@Tyrannical Saber Song One, just a friendly reminder: even if you’re able to achieve the master level in the ‘saber controlling technique’, don’t think about taking an enemy’s head from a thousand miles away. The bodies of Fourth Stage cultivators still have ‘innate true yuan,’ and the quality of such energy still isn’t enough to do so. As you’ve just reached the Fourth Stage, even being able to control the saber from a thousand meters away is already not bad. If you were to send you the saber further, it might not have enough energy to come back after taking the head of the enemy. At that time, you would have to walk all the way to your saber to retrieve it. Hahaha.”

Song Shuhang: “…”

‘Whoosh~’ the saber flies away, and after cutting off the head of the enemy, I’d have to chase after it and retrieve it myself?

This is too depressing!

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Therefore, you should at least wait until you’ve reached the Fifth Stage Realm—after your ‘innate true yuan’ has transformed into spiritual energy—before even thinking about taking the head of your enemy from a thousand miles away. If you don’t feel good about it, then just ascend to the Fifth Stage this year. Hahaha.”

Song Shuhang: “…”

“Actually, it isn’t that difficult to solve the problem of the treasured saber not being able to fly back,” Fairy Lychee suddenly said.

Song Shuhang: “Elder Sister Lychee, do tell.”

…Ever since the last time he sought death, he no longer dared to call Lychee ‘Mama’, as Fairy Lychee gave him a taste of her windmill spin.

“If your treasured saber were to fly off, then just let it be. Hahahaha, this way, you won’t have to go run around and pick up the saber,” Fairy Lychee said while laughing.

Song Shuhang: “…”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “…”

Su Clan’s Sixteen: “…”

True Monarch Northern River: “…”

“Mama Lychee, you’ve been infected by Senior Thrice Reckless,” Song Shuhang said.

Fairy Lychee: “…If you were right by my side right now, I would definitely make you taste my windmill spin.”

Frice Reckless Mad Saber angrily said, “F*ck, don’t unjustly blame me. Look at my daoist name, I’m now called ‘Frice Reckless Mad Saber’. Let me tell you, from today on, I will be a person who will never be reckless again. From today onwards, I shall feed horses, chop wood, and travel around the world, only concerning myself with great events related to the cultivation world and the current affairs of the world. From today onwards, I will face the great seas and enjoy the blossoming of spring. Don’t talk about that ‘infectious’ Thrice Reckless disease anymore, that’s already something of the past.”

Song Shuhang: “…”

If it isn’t the Thrice Reckless disease, then should I change it into Frice Reckless disease? Still, he didn’t send this message as he was afraid of agitating Senior Thrice Reckless, who could send a flying saber at him through the skies.

Dharma King Creation: “That’s quite the joke. According to Thrice Reckless, from today onwards, he would never be reckless again. Hahahaha.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Hahah~”

Fairy Lychee: “Hahaha, this joke is simply too funny.”

True Monarch Northern River: “I laughed mischievously just now.”

True Monarch Fall: “Same here. Forgive me, I couldn’t help but laugh.”

Cave Lord Snow Wolf: “I didn’t laugh, I only smiled lightly.”

Fairy Dongfang Six: “I didn’t even smile, but I felt rather amused in my heart.”

Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “…”

F*ck, I feel stifled now.

Just as the seniors of the group were crazily flooding the screen, Song Shuhang’s heart suddenly moved.

He stretched out his hand to open the chat interface, scrolled back to Fairy Lychee’s message, and fell deep into thought.

A moment later, Song Shuhang’s eyes suddenly lit up.

He reached out and typed: “…What Elder Sister Lychee said just now could actually work! If the treasured saber can’t fly back on its own, then it’s better to let it be! There’s nothing wrong with such logic! I should give it a try. I’m serious, no joke.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Little friend Shuhang, are you really serious?”

Cave Lord Snow Wolf: “A single-use treasured saber?”

Dharma King Creation: “Little friend Shuhang, are you sure you got this much money? A treasured saber that can be used for ‘saber flying techniques’ has to be made with Fourth Stage materials or higher. If you were to really throw out single-use treasured sabers, then you would quickly go bankrupt.”

Song Shuhang smiled. “What I mean is, we are fussing too much about the treasured saber.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Why would you speak part by part! Shuhang, you’ve been in contact with those people of the scholarly faction so much that you’ve already been infected with their smelly disease.”

Eternal Fire is very tired and wants to retire: “…”

He didn’t even say a single thing at all, and he still somehow got attacked? Also, what we say usually has ‘implicit meanings’, alright? It isn’t that we only say things part by part, but we choose to show respect to other people and speak politely. This is the art of language. Moreover, our scholarly faction has always advocated that good medicine tastes bitter, while good words jars on the ears. When necessary, we also speak with our hearts and minds, speaking of things that are unpleasant to the ear.

At this moment, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator’s eyes suddenly lit up. “Wait, could it really work? Little friend Shuhang’s words just reminded me that Fairy Lychee’s idea could actually work.”

Dharma King Creation said, “What do you mean?”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Just tell us, I’m getting quite annoyed!”

Song Shuhang smiled slightly. “Venerable White.”

Northern River’s Loose Cultivator continued, “Disposable flying swords.’

It was very simple—if the treasured saber couldn’t return, then they’d just have it be disposable.

Northern River’s Loose Cultivator continued, “If the treasured saber can’t return, then just have it be something disposable. Therefore, if Senior White’s disposable flying swords could be imitated and changed into ‘disposable flying sabers’, then it wouldn’t matter if one couldn’t retrieve the saber after cutting down the enemy from a thousand miles away. After all, the treasured saber is a single-use item.”

Fairy Lychee: “That makes sense, but only someone like little friend Shuhang, who’s been with Senior White quite a bit recently, could think of such an idea.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer gave it some thought, and then said, “But there’s another problem. Senior White’s disposable flying swords are his unique skill. Others wouldn’t be able to learn that skill even if they wanted to. If you wanted to learn how to make and produce ‘disposable flying swords’, you would require attainments in formation and runes, memory, and strength that match Venerable White’s. But if we were to get Venerable White to produce the disposable flying swords, then it would be meaningless. To be honest, the price of Senior White’s crafted ‘disposable flying swords’ isn’t lower than that of Fourth Stage treasured sabers.”

True Monarch Northern River: “Correct… how to make the ‘disposable flying sword’ is already a great problem. As such, this is only a hypothesis, but if Venerable White could come up with a lower-level ‘disposable flying sword’ skill that Song Shuhang could learn, then Fairy Lychee’s idea might actually work.”

“Let’s wait until we can ask Senior White himself, he might really have a lower-level ‘disposable flying sword’ skill,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.

Senior White’s disposable flying swords had so many variants, so it wasn’t out of the question that it might have a downgraded version.

“If Senior White really has a lower-level skill, then there’s another problem.” Frice Reckless Mad Saber messaged. “😈 Little friend Shuhang, have you already prepared the fee for when you ask Senior White for the skill?”

Nothing came for free. This principle had always been upheld by those of Nine Provinces Number One Group.

Tyrannical Saber Song One: “Heavens, right… I still owe Senior White a spatial magical treasure’s worth of spirit stones. I don’t know how I’m going to repay this debt.”

The Eighth and Ninth Stage spirit stones he’d borrowed from Senior White were all used up to get the flat imperial hat from the ‘Almighty Merchant’.

At that time, Song Shuhang didn’t have the time to bargain. With their life at stake, even someone with a much more serious Thrice Reckless disease wouldn’t bargain with the price. As such, Song Shuhang could only pay as much as the ‘Almighty Merchant’ charged.

And honestly, the price he paid for the flat imperial hat had been worth it. As long as the virtuous golden lamia put it on, she could transform into her empress form and block even the nuclear bomb of tribulation. The state of the virtuous golden lamia at that time likely used the golden light of virtue to restrain the attack of the heavenly tribulation. Nevertheless, the flat imperial hat was a high-quality product.

Frice Reckless Mad Saber: ” A spatial magical treasure’s worth of spirit stones?”

Is little friend Song Shuhang of the idea that he can keep borrowing since he is already in great debt?

“Regarding this problem, let’s just wait until Senior White finishes transcending his tribulation.” Song Shuhang was feeling a great pressure.

After putting away his phone, Song Shuhang looked at Su Clan’s Sixteen. “Sixteen, how about we go back to Jiangnan University Town now?”

He wanted to try out and see how long the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ would last.

“Alright,” Su Clan’s Sixteen replied.
