I believed that you and I were kindred spirits, with you having armor intent and I having saber intent armor. Even if we were to meet, we would talk about the wonders of the armor and have a great discussion. I didn’t expect that you would suddenly tell publicly that you wanted to beat me up!
Song Shuhang felt bitter in his heart.
True Monarch White Crane said, “Cough, cough! First Sage in a thousand years, Senior Tyrannical Song, what do you think about Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s challenge? In this little crane’s humble opinion, if a trivial Winter Melon dares provoke you, just take him on! Beat him up! Let him know that the first Sage in a thousand years cannot be messed with!”
Song Shuhang: “…”
What’s this dignity thing? Can it be eaten?
Moreover, he had already lost his dignity when the virtuous lamia started playing dead by the end of his Profound Sage Speech.
If it was not for the ‘divinity show’ making all the practitioners in the universe remember his name and appearance for a full year, Song Shuhang would have printed out True Monarch White Crane’s face on small posters and plastered them all over the world, saying to everyone that it was the real Profound Sage Tyrannical Song! Then, he’d let Sage Monarch Winter Melon and True Monarch White Crane come to blows.
Su Clan’s Sixteen lightly patted Song Shuhang. “In all honesty, I feel that if Sage Monarch Winter Melon were to really come looking for you, you could just surrender right away. With his identity of a ‘Profound Sage’, he wouldn’t trouble you that much. As a Profound Sage, he should still have this much magnanimity.”
After Su Clan’s Sixteen finished talking, Sage Monarch Winter Melon, who was in the ‘Profound Sage Speech’ state, propped up his sword and said gravely, “When the time comes, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, don’t avoid the fight. Furthermore, it would be of no use for you to refuse it—no man shall be able to stop this fight between us! It is settled!”
Listening to Sage Monarch Winter Melon, it appeared that he didn’t want to give up fighting Song Shuhang. At that time, even if Song Shuhang were to surrender, Sage Monarch Winter Melon might directly attack him and force him into a fight.
Song Shuhang said, “F*ck!”
Su Clan’s Sixteen once again lightly patted him, but after a while, she could only squeeze out two words. “I’m sorry.”
Shi also gently patted Song Shuhang. “Senior Brother Song, don’t cry.”
“Teacher, if you were to die in the fight, could I look for another teacher?” Little Cai asked.
Song Shuhang raised his head to look at the sky. Silly bird, believe it or not, your teacher can kick you out right now!
At this moment, all the practitioners in the universe became lively once again.
What exciting news! The fifth Sage in a thousand years ‘Sage Monarch Winter Melon’ unexpectedly challenged the first Sage in a thousand years ‘Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’ to a fight during his Profound Sage Speech!
Then, the next question was: would the unfathomable Profound Sage Tyrannical Song accept this challenge?
Although one was the first Sage in a thousand years, while the other was the fifth Sage in a thousand years, the difference in the time of their ascension was only a single day. The way the practitioners in the universe saw things, the strength of the two Profound Sages should be fairly close to the other, if not equal.
Profound Sage Tyrannical Song had that materialized golden light of virtue, and together with his simple yet profound explanation of the Daoist Canon, it was suspected that he had specialized in both daoism and buddhism.
As for Sage Monarch Winter Melon, with his solid-looking golden armor intent, he should be a practitioner of the ‘holy knight’ system, and with his daoist name ‘Sage Monarch Winter Melon’, it was possible that he specialized in both the holy knight and daoist paths.
Both were great talents rarely seen in a millennium, dabbling in two different systems!
How shocking would the scene of the duel between the two Profound Sages be?
“I wonder where these two Profound Sages will be fighting it out in China. I’m truly looking forward to it.”
“Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, wreck him, don’t fail to live up to the title of ‘first Sage in a thousand years’! We will always support you!”
“Sage Monarch Winter Melon, we support you, beat up that Profound Sage Tyrannical Song! Let him know the greatness of the holy light!”
“Senior Brother Gao Sheng must die!”
Some curious people asked, “Is ‘next night of full moon’ referring to the full moon on the 15th night of every month? Or is it referring to the full moon of next year’s mid-autumn festival on August 15th?”
Some people beside them replied, “I think it should be the one next year. The two Profound Sages have just ascended, so they would definitely need some time to consolidate their realm. A year of consolidation should be enough for them to grasp the powers of a Profound Sage. The scene would definitely be something greatly discussed by practitioners from all over the universe!”
But, some other people objected. “Couldn’t it just be the next full moon? The two Profound Sages could take advantage of the opportunity of the duel to consolidate their realm! It should only be through combat that they would be able to quickly grasp the wonderful abilities of a Profound Sage!”
At this moment, all the practitioners in the universe were unexpectedly not discussing Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s speech; instead, they were more interested in the next full moon, when the two Profound Sages were going to fight.
One thing was clear: as long as people existed, it would be really easy to go off-topic.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: ” @Tyrannical Saber Song One, First Sage in a thousand years, what are your current thoughts? What do you think of Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s challenge?”
“Although I know it’s rather mean, I can’t stop laughing. Thinking about the scene of Sage Monarch Winter Melon traveling thousands of miles to fight little friend Shuhang, only to discover that his true realm wasn’t what he thought… It’s just too amusing,” Young Master Phoenix Slayer said. ” @Tyrannical Saber Song One, our great Profound Sage, how are you preparing to face Sage Monarch Winter Melon?”
I’m that little white crane at the edge of the Earth’s End: “Hahaha, there’s no use in pinging Shuhang. He doesn’t have his phone on him, so he won’t be able to reply.”
Song Shuhang’s phone was still in the Heavenly Tribulation Realm with Venerable White, who was using it to play games. The phone was doomed never to return.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Then, White Crane, quickly tell us what’s little friend Song Shuhang’s current expression.”
I’m that little white crane at the edge of the Earth’s End: ” @Young Master Phoenix Slayer, little friend Shuhang’s current expression is quite interesting. By the way, he told me to tell you something. This is exactly what he said: ‘Senior Phoenix Slayer, you will regret this!’. That’s it.”
“What does he mean?” Young Master Phoenix Slayer was confused.
True Monarch White Crane: “How should I know, I’m not Song Shuhang. You should just carefully think about what leverage Song Shuhang has against you. Hahaha.”
True Monarch Fallout: “After the big fight between Northern River’s Loose Cultivator and Immortal Master Copper Trigram on the previous full moon night… we can now look forward to the fight between little friend Song Shuhang and Sage Monarch Winter Melon on the next one. It feels like every full moon causes the mood of the people to surge and gets their blood boiling.”
Wandering Monk Profound Principle: “👍🏼”
Medicine Master: “Let me explain what Great Master Profound Principle means to say: little friend Shuhang, don’t be a coward, just go for it!”
Song Shuhang saw through Sixteen’s phone the discussion the seniors in the group were having, and the corners of his mouth twitched.
I must have definitely opened the wrong group’s chat room as of late.
When I just joined the group, the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ wasn’t like this.
At that time, every senior in the group treated him with care, but at some point, the character of the seniors deteriorated into this… where did their care for the younger generation go?
His heart felt truly stifled.
If he could go online now, he would definitely send this emoji: 😢.
Yellow Mountain is very tired and wants to retire: “Let’s get back to the main topic and take this seriously. Little friend Shuhang, do you have any plans?”
True Monarch was indeed worthy of being the last kind soul in the Nine Provinces Number One Group. In the current group, it was only True Monarch Yellow Mountain who could still give people a feeling of warmth.
Su Clan’s Sixteen replied in Song Shuhang’s place. “Shuhang said that he has no plans at all. The strength of the opposing party is simply too high, so he hasn’t come up with a solution yet.”
True Monarch Yellow Mountain: “I’ll think of a way to collect some intelligence on Sage Monarch Winter Melon for you. After finding out his origins and what cultivation technique he’s practicing, I’ll give little friend Shuhang some advice.” He could only help Song Shuhang this much.
Fairy Lychee: “I will continue to inquire the seniors of my sect on whether this Sage Monarch Winter Melon has anything to do with us. If he is related to us in some way, this misunderstanding can be solved. However, I have a feeling that Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s daoist name is just coincidentally similar to ours.”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Perhaps he’s an actual winter melon that learned to cultivate.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “If he’s really an actual winter melon, perhaps Immortal Fairy Bie Xue would be very interested. By the way, little friend Shuhang, let’s make the trade this evening. I’ll bring the Black Iron Godly Armor.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “Shuhang said that he still has the invitation card, so he’ll wait for Senior to arrive here to make the trade.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Ok.”
I’m that little white crane at the edge of the Earth’s End: “That Sage Monarch Winter Melon had very strong holy light. As a result, his moral character shouldn’t be too bad. The holy light is rather similar to the golden light of virtue. Both aren’t something that evil cultivators would practice.”
True Monarch Fallout: “But the strength of the opposing party remains. Eighth Stage Profound Sage? A casual punch should be enough to kill little friend Song Shuhang.”
With such a large difference in strength, the opposite party might accidentally kill Shuhang even though they had no intention of doing so.
Song Shuhang got a toothache.
His consciousness sank into his Inner World and looked at the guided missiles inside the Palace of Winter.
If he really had to deal with an Eighth Stage Profound Sage, he could only rely on the guided missiles collected by Venerable White.
But those guided missiles wouldn’t really work against an Eighth Stage Profound Sage.
The best thing would be to use nuclear bombs or hydrogen bombs.
But had Venerable White collected the hydrogen bombs already?
Just as Song Shuhang was in deep thought, in the sky, Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s Profound Sage Speech began.
“Today, I would like to talk about the path of ‘defense’. What is the most important thing for practitioners? Naturally, it would be transcending the tribulation and ascending, and as such, achieving eternal life! As for transcending the heavenly tribulation, what would be the most important thing at such times? Is it offense? No, obviously not! It’s defense! The essence of the path of defense is to ward off the waves of the heavenly tribulation.” Sage Monarch Winter Melon smiled lightly, and said, “Actually, I have terrible news for everyone! You would definitely not have guessed it, but the heavenly tribulation has unexpectedly modernized!”
All the practitioners in the universe: “Yeah, we already know!”
Sage Monarch Winter Melon: “…”
