Song Shuhang had three classes in the afternoon.
Besides having to suffer the electric shocks on his left arm, the afternoon classes went by pretty smoothly.
Song Shuhang enjoyed these rare peaceful times in his life. On the path of cultivation, one should pay particular attention to tension and relaxation, and so things like having a peaceful campus life were also beneficial for cultivators.
After the third afternoon class… Song Shuhang, True Monarch White Crane, Shi, and the monster bird Little Cai suddenly all raised their heads to look somewhere in the air.
It wasn’t just Song Shuhang and them… it was the same for all the practitioners in the universe. No matter which system they were from, as long as they were practitioners, they raised their heads to look towards the void!
This feeling… there was another ‘divinity show’ incoming.
Has Senior White finally finished grinding the heavenly tribulation and ascended to become an Eighth Stage Profound Sage? Song Shuhang thought to himself.
True Monarch White Crane and Shi both turned their heads to look at him. Then, the three exchanged glances and nodded silently.
Gao Moumou stood up. Then, as he sorted through his books, he said, “Phew, class is over. Shuhang, are you going back to the dorm today?”
Song Shuhang turned his head to look at his three roommates, and said, “I have something up today, so I won’t be returning to the dorm. You can go ahead first.”
Tubo smiled, and said, “Do you have another appointment with Teacher Su?”
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “Nope, I’ve got something else up tonight.”
“Then, we’ll be going first.” Gao Moumou waved towards Song Shuhang.
The people in the classroom gradually dispersed. Song Shuhang, True Monarch White Crane, and Shi all nodded their heads, got up together, and went to the next classroom, where there were no people.
True Monarch White Crane set up an alarm-type formation. Then, two people and one bird all looked towards the ceiling, waiting to see the scene of Senior White showing his divinity in front of the masses.
“I’m so nervous. I wonder how Senior White’s divinity show will be,” True Monarch White Crane said with anticipation. At the same time, it was slightly worried.
Senior White’s charm was too great. Once he appeared in the divinity show, all the practitioners in the universe, regardless of their system, would be able to see his appearance.
At that time, would millions of people end up becoming its rivals?
With this thought in mind, True Monarch White Crane felt like dying. It hoped that Senior White could show his divinity in front of the masses, letting everyone know about his charm, but it was also worried that Senior White’s charm could end up causing his love rivals to increase by millions.
Loli Shi said expectantly, “I’ve already missed the divinity show once. I didn’t think that I’d get the chance to see another one.” Previously, during Song Shuhang’s, Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman’s, and Horizon’s divinity shows, Shi was still asleep. She ended up only seeing the show of divinity in her dreams. After missing the first few divinity shows in a thousand years, Shi was full of regret. But, she didn’t think that she would be able to see Senior White’s show of divinity the following day.
Song Shuhang said, “I hope that when Senior White shows his divinity, there wouldn’t be a pile of guided missiles beside him.” Otherwise, Senior White would definitely be mistaken for an arms dealer.
At this time, the Nine Provinces Number One Group was also getting lively.
Yellow Mountain is very tired and wants to retire: “A show of divinity… It should be Venerable White, right?”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Senior White has already been inside the Heavenly Tribulation Realm for a day and a night, it should be about time.”
“Honestly, I’ve been looking forward to this for many years,” Frice Reckless Mad Saber said. “To have all the fellow daoists in the world see Senior White’s appearance, with countless people falling for him as soon as he shows his presence… It’s going to be glorious.”
[Today, I wasn’t satisfied with the daoist name my father chose, so I turned it down] Soft Feather: “I’m really looking forward to Senior White’s Profound Sage Speech. Perhaps he will talk about his experiences related to the ‘coiling flight feature’ or that ‘high altitude escapology game’. He might even talk about how to produce disposable flying swords, something that Senior Song is greatly interested in.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “What Soft Feather said is reasonable. If Senior White were to talk about how to produce disposable flying swords, little friend Shuhang would be making a profit.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: ” @Tyrannical Saber Song One, where are you all? I just went to your classroom and couldn’t find any of you.”
I’m that little white crane at the edge of the Earth’s End: “Little Sixteen, come to classroom 3015, there’s nobody else here. I’ve set up a formation, and we’re about to watch Senior White’s show of divinity.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “Alright, I’ll be there soon.”
“Come here quickly, the show of divinity is about to begin,” True Monarch White Crane said happily. “Today is the day that all the practitioners in the universe will understand Senior White’s charm.”
At this moment, all the practitioners in the universe were lively once again.
“There’s another Venerable that ascended to Profound Sage Realm and is going to show their divinity? Heavens, what’s up with these two days? Did the Venerables make an appointment to all ascended together?”
Some people said, “After the four Profound Sages from yesterday, this should be the fifth Sage in a thousand years, right?”
“Is it going to be the white-robed cultivator that was transcending the Profound Sage tribulation yesterday? He’s been at it since last night!” Some people thought of Daoist Priest Horizon’s Profound Sage Speech frame from yesterday, where the white-robed cultivator had suddenly appeared.
Some cultivators that had watched ❮Apocalypse War❯ said excitedly, “It must be ‘Ling Ye’, he should have been the one transcending the tribulation yesterday. He is my god.”
After about a few tens of breaths.
A frame appeared before the eyes of the practitioners in the universe, and they all raised their heads to look in the sky.
What was first shown to the public was the back of a tall figure wearing a hoodie.
“Eh?” Song Shuhang blinked his eyes.
“What?!” True Monarch White Crane cried out.
This wasn’t Venerable White!
Venerable White’s stature was more slender. This guy with a large back was definitely not Venerable White.
Su Clan’s Sixteen said, “Could it be something similar to Song Shuhang’s materialized virtuous golden light?”
Yesterday, during Song Shuhang’s show of divinity, the first thing that appeared in the frame wasn’t Song Shuhang, but rather the virtuous lamia wearing the flat imperial hat.
Song Shuhang said, “That’s very likely, maybe it’s a magical treasure of Senior White’s.” Senior White had so many magical treasures that Shuhang couldn’t even remember all of them. Therefore, he wouldn’t be surprised if this wasn’t a magical treasure.
While they were talking, the frame of the show of divinity slowly rotated.
Then, a brilliant and handsome face appeared in the frame.
Blue eyes, solid features, a resolute and steadfast face, this was the face of a handsome Western man. The man slowly took his hood off and revealed his short golden hair.
“Heavens, it isn’t a magical treasure. That simply isn’t Venerable White,” Song Shuhang said.
A Venerable he didn’t recognize had transcended the heavenly tribulation of the Eighth Stage and was now showing his divinity.
“It’s unexpectedly not Senior White, what a waste of my love,” True Monarch White Crane said filled with dissatisfaction.
The practitioners of the Nine Provinces Number One Group and the entire universe all had similar responses. They’d originally thought that the fifth Sage in a thousand years was going to be Venerable White.
They didn’t think that the person that would appear in the frame would be some strange golden-haired man.
When the practitioners of the West saw the golden-haired man, they all became excited. Looking at the appearance and the clothes of the man, he should really be a practitioner from the West!
The first, second, third, and fourth Sages in a thousand years had all been cultivators, which made them feel great pressure. But now, they could finally breathe out!
At this moment, in the sky, the golden-haired fifth Sage in a thousand years sensed that he was in the ‘show of divinity’. He slowly drew out a broadsword and placed it in front of him.
The sword glistened with golden light. Its body was made of gold, fully displaying the aura of a tycoon.
At this moment, a string of characters appeared beside the man. The text was divided into two lines, one line looking like it had letters of the alphabet, the other looking like it had Chinese characters.
The golden-haired fifth Sage in a thousand years looked at the two lines of text and frowned slightly, seemingly hesitating.
Both lines of text contained something that represented his identity, and he could choose one of them to become his ‘Sage Seal’.
This scene was the usual process where Profound Sage’s Sage Seal would come into existence.
After he had thought for a moment, he reached out for the line that looked like it had Chinese characters.
His Sage Seal then began to condense.
After ten breaths, the Sage Seal had fully formed.
[Sage Monarch Winter Melon]
The fifth Sage in a thousand years, Sage Monarch Winter Melon!
Why would he have such a daoist name? Originally filled with anticipation, the practitioners of the West flipped their tables one after another.
Song Shuhang: “Pfff~”
True Monarch White Crane: “Pfff~”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “…”
The Nine Provinces Number One Group became lively in an instant.
Yellow Mountain is very tired and wants to retire: ” @Fairy Lychee, is this a senior from your sect?”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “The daoist name indeed conforms to the style of Fairy Lychee’s sect, but to which generation Winter Melon belongs? I remember that Fairy Lychee’s generation is the fruit system, while the following generation is the cereal system. He should be from the vegetable system, which should be from the previous generation, right?”
Fairy Lychee: “😳”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “Eh? He isn’t Fairy Lychee’s senior?”
“In our current system, there is indeed a senior with the daoist name ‘Winter Melon’, but that senior is a female cultivator, and her daoist name is Fairy Winter Melon. She’s also familiar with Senior White,” Fairy Lychee said. “As for this new Profound Sage ‘Sage Monarch Winter Melon’, it’s the first time I’ve heard of him.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Could it be someone of even higher seniority in Fairy Lychee’s sect? Your system goes from vegetables to fruits to cereals… but what comes after that? It wouldn’t be something like Daoist Priest Potato Chips, right? It probably goes a full circle after cereals and start again from the beginning, correct?”
Fairy Lychee: “I’ve got no idea, either. I’m also confused. Currently, in my sect’s group, Fairy Nectarine asked her teacher whether this Sage Monarch Winter Melon had any relation to them, but our teacher was also confused, and didn’t reply. I guess she is asking her seniors.”
Tyrant Flood Dragon wants to father a football team: “This Sage Monarch Winter Melon couldn’t possibly be a cultivator of our side, right? I originally believed he was someone from the West, like a Holy Knight…”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “If we just look at the daoist name, then he’s definitely from our cultivation system.”
Yellow Mountain is very tired and wants to retire: “Don’t worry. In a while, after Sage Monarch Winter Melon begins his Profound Sage Speech, we’ll be able to find out which system he’s from through the contents of the speech!”
The show of divinity in front of the masses was completed as the Sage Seal finished condensing.
The newly ascended Profound Sage ‘Sage Monarch Winter Melon’ put down his golden broadsword, placing it on the ground. Then, he raised his head, stood upright, and entered the ‘Profound Sage Speech’ state.
All the practitioners in the universe calmed down.
For the past two days, the heavens had been constantly sending them gifts, with one Profound Sage Speech after another, which, of course, made all the practitioners in the universe very happy.
It was no exaggeration to say that Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s speech on the Daoist Canon and Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman’s speech on the buddhist scripture yesterday greatly increased the power of practitioners from daoist and buddhist sects! Moreover, it should have benefited the practitioners in the universe as well!
Sage Monarch Winter Melon held his sword with both hands while he lowered his blue eyes.
His Sage Seal floated beside him, bringing about the dignity of a Profound Sage.
Then, he reached out for the sword’s hilt, with a set of golden armor appearing on his body. The power of ‘intent’ slowly emerged.
“Eh, this newly ascended Profound Sage can also use the saber intent armor?” Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up. He felt joy in being able to find someone with the same intent as him.
“Open your eyes and look properly, this is armor intent, authentic armor intent,” True Monarch White Crane said slowly.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Su Clan’s Sixteen gently patted Song Shuhang. She thought of comforting him, but she couldn’t find the words.
After condensing the armor intent and smoothing his hair, Sage Monarch Winter Melon opened his mouth.
The first line to come out of his mouth was: “Shiet! How could I be the fifth Sage in a thousand years?!”
Obviously, this authentic Eighth Stage Profound Sage was different from the fakes like Song Shuhang and the others, with him being able to get feedback from all the practitioners in the universe to some extent.
He heard the practitioners talking about the fifth Sage in a thousand years ‘Sage Monarch Winter Melon’.
And the first Sage in a thousand years was someone he had never heard of, called Profound Sage Tyrannical Song.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Apologies, Sage Monarch Winter Melon, but I’ve stolen the title of first Sage in a thousand years from you.
“Cough.” Sage Monarch Winter Melon lightly coughed, and his resolute face became serious. “I didn’t think that after spending three years transcending the heavenly tribulation, I would unexpectedly fall a step behind others… Before I start my speech, I’d like to say something first. First Sage in a thousand years ‘Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’, since ancient times, no one has been first in literature and no one has been second in military power. On the night of the next full moon, this daoist will come to China to seek your guidance!”
Song Shuhang said, “F*ck!”
