The two went into an alley. After they were sure that there was nobody around, they materialized a blade of light and controlled their sabers to rush towards the sky. Their destination was Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s residence.
Song Shuhang doubtfully said, “Strange, how come my Sage Seal can affect ordinary people? I thought that only practitioners would be able to sense the power of the Sage Seal and know of the Profound Sage’s daoist name on the seal.”
Yet, when ordinary people saw him, they stopped due to the influence of the Sage Seal,respectfully greeting him with the words: “Hello, Mister Tyrannical Song”.
He was like a famous big shot.
However, Song Shuhang was now rather worried what would happen when he encountered a relative. He was questioning himself whether or not his relatives would also fall under the influence of the Sage Seal and respectfully greet him.
If that were to happen, then he would prefer to avoid going home for the time being.
If his parents and some of his family’s seniors were to be influenced by the Sage Seal and respectfully greet him as ‘Mister Tyrannical Song’, he wouldn’t be able to take it.
Su Clan’s Sixteen slowed down, and replied, “It’s probably because you don’t have enough control over your Sage Seal. The Sage Seal itself has the power to ‘show divinity in front of the masses’ and has a dignity of its own, it’s normal for it to possesses the ability to make ordinary people feel respect for it. However, this function can definitely be turned off. For example, during the morning classes, none of your classmates called you Mister Tyrannical Song, right?”
“That’s true.” Song Shuhang nodded, and thought, Tonight, when the fellow daoists of Nine Provinces Number One Group come to study the guided missile, I definitely need to ask Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue about the Sage Seal.
Eh, wait a minute, isn’t Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue practicing at Jiangnan University Town at this moment? There was a Profound Sage Speech just now, so he shouldn’t be practicing at this time.
Song Shuhang subconsciously reached into his pocket to get his phone out. He wanted to contact Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, but when he felt inside his pocket, his phone wasn’t there.
Heavens, I might actually have phone syndrome.
When his phone was around, he didn’t really give it much thought. Every once in a while, he would just take it out to have a look at the group chat. But now, when his phone wasn’t with him, he kept on reaching to his pocket every now and then, and he was feeling quite uneasy without it.
Song Shuhang then inwardly thought, Nevermind, I’ll just go back to look for Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue after visiting Immortal Fairy Bie Xue.
After Song Shuhang and Sixteen arrived at Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s residence, Song Shuhang was left stunned.
“How in the world did this place end up like this?” He looked around the residence.
He was supposed to see a simple three-story building with a small courtyard. However, the lower floor had been transformed into a small shop called [Chen Family’s Stewed Horse Meat].
Quite a number of customers could be seen lined up outside.
The people of the Jiangnan area didn’t actually have much of an impression on ‘horse meat’, and they weren’t all that familiar with eating horse meat, but frankly, as long as the food tasted good, a lot of the people would turn up.
Su Clan’s Sixteen looked at the ‘Chen Family’s Stewed Horse Meat’ store, and asked, “Is this the residence of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue?”
Song Shuhang replied, “It wasn’t like this yesterday… Could it be that Senior Bie Xue was suddenly inspired and opened up a shop?”
The first time he’d seen Immortal Fairy Bie Xue getting inspired, she took over a place which used to be a fish head shop and started making ‘meat sandwiches’ in that place, which ended up gaining quite some popularity.
And now, she had started cooking ‘Stewed Horse Meat’?
Song Shuhang brought Su Clan’s Sixteen into the small courtyard.
Then, he leaned over to see if the owner of Chen Family’s Stewed Horse Meat Shop was Immortal Fairy Bie Xue or not.
At this moment, the person lined up in front of him said with dissatisfaction, “Hey, don’t cut in line. Line up properly.” However, as soon as the young man finished speaking, his eyes suddenly brightened up, and he respectfully greeted, “Ah, it’s you, Mister Tyrannical Song. Hello!”
Song Shuhang: “…”
This gives me quite a complicated feeling.
The young man’s words attracted the attention of the other customers in the front. Some of them turned around and looked at Song Shuhang.
Then, under the influence of the Sage Seal, these customers—regardless of whether they were male or female, old or young—all became respectful, and one after another said, “Greetings, Mister Tyrannical Song. Have you come to eat the Chen Family’s special Stewed Horse Meat?”
Some of the customers who didn’t turn to look back heard these greetings, and became quite puzzled––who was this Mister Tyrannical Song? Was he some famous person in Jiangnan? Why did they seem not to have heard of him?
As such, these customers who didn’t look back at first also turned their heads to take a look and saw Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen. Then, also falling under the influence of the Sage Seal, with respect in their eyes, they said, “Greetings, Mister Tyrannical Song, I didn’t expect to see you here!”
Song Shuhang: “…”
F*cking Dou— oh wait, Doudou is now married.
As people were talking, a tall veiled woman came out from inside Chen Family’s Stewed Horse Meat Shop with a big box in her hand, which she then placed on the counter. The veiled lady then said, “One piece per person, line up to purchase.”
It was Immortal Fairy Bie Xue.
Immortal Fairy, wouldn’t cultivators cry if they were to see this scene?
So many people had fought for a chance to partake in the ‘Immortal Feast’ to have a taste of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s cooking, but Immortal Fairy Bie Xue had now worked as a chef in Jiangnan twice over the span of a few months.
The people of Jiangnan were truly fortunate.
“Oh, Shuhang, you’ve come. Follow me, let’s go to the second floor.” The veiled woman saw Song Shuhang and waved at him.
“500 yuan for each piece of stewed horse meat, and only one piece per person. Put the money in the box on the right. Do you all understand?” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said to the customers waiting outside afterward.
“Don’t worry, Boss. We all know the rules.” The customers who were in line nodded their heads.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue then said, “Once this box is sold out, there’s no need to line up anymore. We’ll be closing for today.”
Then, without waiting for the customers to reply, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue brought Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen to the second floor.
There were actually people who conducted their business like this?
However, the customers who lined up still had faces filled with happiness. They obediently listened, only taking one each and paying for it.
Immortal Fairy brought Song Shuhang and Sixteen to the second floor.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Bie Xue, can I buy some of that Stewed Horse Meat?”
It was something cooked by Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, and was only 500 yuan for a piece. Such things could be directly sold for spirit stones in the world of cultivation!
“What are you going to buy it for?” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue glanced at Song Shuhang. “That’s only some stallion spirit meat. If you want some, then you can just go and get some.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Senior Bie Xue, you saying it like this makes me suddenly feel like not buying that Stewed Horse Meat anymore.
Wait, stallion spirit?
Such a coincidence?
Song Shuhang remembered a stallion spirit he once came across—it was a black stallion spirit, and just like Lady Onion, it was a member of the ‘All the Monsters of the World Should Unite and Become a Family’ organization.
At that time, the black stallion spirit wanted to sneak on him and steal Lady Onion. Unfortunately, it hadn’t expected that a certain Young Master Phoenix Slayer would be right behind Song Shuhang.
And so, the stallion spirit failed and got whipped to death.
According to what he had said, he wanted to carry off Lady Onion and mate with her, that was how terribly in heat the stallion spirit was.
It shouldn’t be that same stallion spirit, right? After all, there were a lot of horse monsters in the world, and among them was definitely quite a big number of stallions.
Just as Song Shuhang was thinking this, he suddenly sensed a weak monster qi, and he found it very familiar…
The monster qi of a monster and the handprint of a human were similar in a way, when carefully inspecting them, differences could be found, and they helped to tell individuals apart.
This monster qi… it indeed came from the black stallion spirit from that time.
How did it end up in the hands of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue?
Song Shuhang asked curiously, “Senior Bie Xue, why did you suddenly open up a Stewed Horse Meat shop? And, what’s the story regarding the stallion spirit?”
“Oh, it happened yesterday. After I returned with the crocodile leg and some other ingredients and was preparing to try out some new dishes, a stallion spirit came out of nowhere and attacked me while I was cooking. When it attacked me, its eyes were shining, and it said that it was in heat.” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said with a cold smile. “It seemed to have thought that I was some ordinary immortal chef, the kind without any fighting abilities. It was simply seeking death, so I beat it up and tied it up with a monster-binding rope.”
The monster-binding rope was the signature magical treasure of monster hunters. Such magical treasures could be found in the hands of some immortal chefs.
Moreover, it unexpectedly dared to attack Immortal Fairy Bie Xue while she was cooking? It was either ignorant or fearless.
In Song Shuhang’s heart, he silently lit a candle for the stallion spirit.
…The stallion spirit in heat had met its natural enemy.
Afterward… oh, there was no afterward.
Natural enemies were truly terrible and unreasonable beings.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue held her chin up as she said, “About this Stewed Horse Meat shop… while I was experimenting with the crocodile leg last night, I thought of a number of decent recipes, but I didn’t want to directly experiment using the crocodile leg, so I used the stallion spirit to conduct the experiments instead. After several experiments, I found that there was quite a lot of horse meat just lying around, but since it was stallion meat, I didn’t really want to eat it. And so, I made it into Stewed Horse Meat, removing the monster qi so that ordinary people would be able to eat it. Then, this morning, I opened the shop.”
Song Shuhang asked, “What about the stallion spirit?”
“It’s fine, it’s still alive,” said Immortal Fairy Bie Xue. “Every time I cut off a piece, I healed it back with healing techniques. Now, other than being a little weaker, there aren’t even any scars on its body.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Bie Xue, can I see the stallion spirit?”
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue asked, “You’re interested in the stallion spirit?”
“Not interested, but… I want to confirm whether it’s the stallion spirit I encountered the last time,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
“Alright, then let’s go to the backyard,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said.
There were many formations covering the backyard—there was an illusory formation, a soundproof formation, and a monster qi leakage prevention formation.
At this moment, a black stallion spirit bound by a rope and a face full of tears could be seen.
When it saw Song Shuhang arrive, the black stallion spirit’s eyes lit up. “Daoist Song! Save me, please save me!”
