Song Shuhang: “…”
In fact, a clone technique to create clones that could replace the master in getting beat up… did actually exist. He remembered that Venerable White had sent a clone to resist the heavenly tribulation, which had then died. Moreover, this clone was not only able to replace Venerable White in facing the heavenly tribulation, but was also able to replace Venerable White to chat.
Should he wait for a while and look for Venerable White to ask him about the magical clone technique, and also to see how difficult it was to practice?
However, Venerable White was still in the midst of transcending his tribulation, which meant that Shuhang would have to wait until he was idle before being able to speak to him.
Meanwhile, he suddenly thought of another matter, and sent a message to the group. “Do you know when Senior Copper Trigram is going to come online?”
He had recently wanted to talk to Immortal Master Copper Trigram to learn more about that Lightning Pig that possessed 36 forms, and ask whether it was the pet of the ancestral golden dragon. If it was, then Song Shuhang wanted to understand the relationship between the ancestral golden dragon and Slow-Witted Song through the Lightning Pig.
So, previously, he had set the Immortal Master Copper Trigram as someone he ‘followed’ in the group so that he would be notified as soon as he went online.
However, he hadn’t received any notification just now—could it be that Immortal Master Copper Trigram was online only during the time when he was facing Sage Monarch Winter Melon?
No, that couldn’t be… because he didn’t receive a notification about Immortal Master Copper Trigram logging in, either.
Fairy Lychee said, “He went online about half an hour ago, then went offline again after a while.”
Song Shuhang looked puzzled. “Strange, why haven’t I received a notification about Senior Copper Trigram going online? I’ve clearly ‘followed’ him already.”
Fairy Lychee curiously asked, “Why did you ‘follow’ Copper Trigram?”
Song Shuhang replied, “There’s an important matter that I want to ask him about.”
True Monarch Northern River explained, “Copper Trigram went online with Iron Trigram’s account. As for why he went online with Iron Trigram’s account, I would like to know as well.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Sigh, he could only ‘follow’ the account [Immortal Fortune Teller Iron Trigram] as well.
Song Shuhang worriedly asked, “Does Senior Copper Trigram have any other smurf in the group?”
True Monarch Northern River: “That should be all… Copper Trigram has only Iron Trigram as disciple, and Iron Trigram has yet to give Copper Trigram a grand-disciple.”
Song Shuhang sighed; he hoped that he would be able to meet Senior Copper Trigram next time.
At this time, Dharma King Creation curiously asked, “Little friend Shuhang, haven’t you already forced Sage Monarch Winter Melon to leave? Why do you still want to get that clone technique that can replace you in getting beaten up?”
“Little friend Shuhang must be preparing just in case. After all, it is Copper Trigram’s divination,” True Monarch Northern River replied for Song Shuhang.
Dharma King Creation: “Ah, that makes sense. By the way, little friend Shuhang, is your signal good right now? I have a new song, do you want to hear it?”
The entire ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ instantly went silent.
They had learned from experience… not to click if Dharma King Creation ever sent a voice message.
“Oh no, the signal suddenly started to weaken… my mobile phone is almost out of power. Seniors, I’ll talk to you later.” Song Shuhang quickly sent a message, and then went offline.
The corners of Dharma King Creation’s mouth twitched.
Strange, doesn’t little friend Shuhang like my songs? He was clearly sings my ❮Seven Deaths Song❯ in secret, so why is he avoiding me now?
Could it be that though little friend Shuhang’s mouth says no, his body says yes?
After exiting the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’, Song Shuhang passed a note to Venerable White. [Senior White, are you busy?]
[Quite busy. There’s not enough time to eat, let’s talk again in a few hours,] Venerable White unknown-th clone replied.
It looked like Senior White was having a great time.
Shuhang wanted to ask him about the clone technique, but it seemed that it could only be postponed.
Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen continued flying on their sabers towards Lady Onion’s birthplace.
On the way, Su Clan’s Sixteen curiously asked, “Shuhang, what do you plan on asking Senior Copper Trigram about?”
“I want to know more about the ‘Lightning Pig’ that took Senior Copper Trigram,” Song Shuhang replied.
Su Clan’s Sixteen’s eyes lowered slightly as she asked, “What do you want to know about the ‘Lightning Pig’?”
“I want to know the relationship between the ‘Lightning Pig’ and the ‘ancestral golden dragon’ of the Sea Race. I want to know if it was the pet of the ‘ancestral golden dragon’,” Song Shuhang replied.
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “You know about the ancestral golden dragon?”
“I heard about it from Yu Jiaojiao. Sixteen, you also know about the ancestral golden dragon?” Song Shuhang asked back.
Su Clan’s Sixteen nodded, and said, “Mm-hm, my Spirit River Su Clan and the Sea Race have been cooperating for quite a while, so I know some things about the ancestral golden dragon. Why are you suddenly interested in the ancestral golden dragon?”
Song Shuhang replied, “It’s a long story. I learned from Yu Jiaojiao that the ‘ancestral golden dragon’ left some secret messages in the Dragon King Palace. Then, there was another person, a powerhouse of the ancient era, who left replies to the ancestral golden dragon under the golden dragon’s messages. So, I ended up becoming curious about the ancestral golden dragon.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen turned her body, and curiously asked, “What kind of messages did he leave?”
“Some death-seeking messages.” Song Shuhang sighed.
Shi inquired, “How so?”
Song Shuhang gritted his teeth, and said, “It was a kind of message that after a person reads it, they would want to rush out and chop the other party up.” Regarding the specific message, he didn’t plan on disclosing it without getting Yu Jiaojiao’s consent. After all, this was related to the ‘Dragon King Palace’, which was a secret area of the Sea Race.
Shi blinked and nodded.
“Oh,” Su Clan’s Sixteen also responded, and then she lowered her head, seemingly falling deep into thought.
The two continued to ride their sabers onward.
“Sixteen, what are you thinking about?” Song Shuhang asked—Su Clan’s Sixteen has been silent since the end of the conversation just now.
Su Clan’s Sixteen suggested, “It’s nothing, but I suddenly feel kinda drowsy and a little bored. Let’s have a race with our sabers. Also, how about I don’t use the human-saber fusion, and we can only use the ordinary flying saber technique this time?”
“Okay,” Song Shuhang said with a smile, no longer asking.
Sometimes… it wasn’t good to be persistent with questions. Not knowing when to stop wasn’t a good habit.
In the next moment, the two of them controlled their saber light and rushed forward.
Su Clan’s Sixteen did not use the ‘human-saber fusion’ flight technique, and Song Shuhang did not use ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ technique. The two of them only used the simplest method of flying with the saber.
At three in the afternoon.
Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen finally arrived near the place where Lady Onion had grown up, not far from a very tall mountain.
“Is this the place?” Song Shuhang continued to fly with his saber as he looked downwards.
That mountain peak was similar to the peak he’d seen when he had that dream where he experienced Lady Onion’s life.
Lady Onion popped her head out, and said, “I’m not sure… I haven’t been back here for centuries. However, this should be the right place.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen said, “Then, let’s go and take a look.”
The two sabers slowly approached the peak and descended. They were preparing to land directly on the mountain peak.
However, halfway into their descent, they found that there was a gentle barrier that was blocking the two of them.
From this barrier, Song Shuhang sensed a familiar aura—it was Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s aura.
Song Shuhang said, “It looks like this is indeed the right place, let’s descend along the barrier.”
Due to the barrier, the two couldn’t directly land on the mountain. As such, they could only land elsewhere first and look for an entrance.
Three people, one bird, and one green onion landed at the foot of the mountain.
Song Shuhang could feel a strong sense of familiarity; it was as if he was dreaming about the life of Lady Onion once again.
Su Clan’s Sixteen looked at Lady Onion, and asked, “Where’s the entrance?”
“Let me see.” Lady Onion squeezed out of the size-reducing purse, and stared at the giant mountain. Then, after a moment, she blinked and said, “I forgot.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “…”
Lady Onion became anxious. “Don’t look at me like that, it’s normal for me to have forgotten. I was just a little monster when I left the mountain. Then, I met someone bad and was locked up for 300 years. I even almost forgot where I grew up, so how am I supposed to know where the entrance is?”
Song Shuhang suddenly said, “Come with me.”
The feeling of familiarity that Shuhang was getting became stronger and stronger. He followed his intuition and the strong feeling of familiarity, moving around the mountain peak. When he turned towards the southwest, he suddenly reached out and pushed forward.
Vaguely, a door seemed to have been pushed open.
Song Shuhang said, “Alright, come in through here.”
Lady Onion said, “Heavens~ Is this my home or yours? How are you more familiar with the place than me?”
Song Shuhang laughed as he said, “Secret.”
Lady Onion: “…”
She became increasingly skeptical. Had Song Shuhang silently done something extreme to her? For example, extracting her memories or something?
A team of three humans, one bird, and one green onion, entered the barrier.
After entering the barrier, the bright scenery appeared before everyone’s eyes. A stone path led all the way to the top of the mountain.
On the side of the road, there was verdant spirit grass, and large medicinal herbs such as ginseng, spiritual mushrooms, and knotweed that littered the ground like weeds. Some ginseng was like radish, with parts of the plant exposed outside.
Shi saw a beautiful plant of ginseng, so she crouched down in curiosity, reaching out to pull it out.
Su Clan’s Sixteen gently grasped Shi’s hand and shook her head. “Don’t touch them, the grass and trees here are all part of a large formation. Even removing a small blade of grass can cause huge changes to this space. ”
Shi quickly retracted her little hand.
Little Cai’s mouth opened wide as her head suddenly stooped down—just now, she was about to peck a little crimson fruit!
Song Shuhang said, “We’ll only be walking along the stone path, don’t leave the path.”
Little Cai flew back to Song Shuhang’s shoulder and looked around curiously. Lady Onion’s onion sprouts squeezed out from the size-reducing purse, the path in front of her made her recall old memories.
At that time, she was in Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s big hand as the latter rose to the peak of the mountain step after step.
The group walked halfway up the mountain and was blocked by a barrier gate.
Lady Onion said curiously, “Eh? Strange. When I went down the mountain, I didn’t see such a barrier gate.”
