It wasn’t only Fairy Lychee, the other seniors who were online also went and comforted Song Shuhang.
Fairy Dongfang Six: “There, there, little friend Shuhang, don’t cry. I thought that no duel had occurred between you and Sage Monarch Winter Melon since you were online and seemed alright. It’s my mistake, I shouldn’t have even brought up this topic. I acknowledge my mistake.”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “Don’t be heart-broken, Shuhang. You’re still young, and it isn’t shameful to lose to someone at the Eight Stage while you’re still at the Fourth Stage Realm. Besides, you’ve only been cultivating for slightly more than four months. At this rate, you might really be able to reach the Eighth Stage at some point. At that time, you can go back and beat Sage Monarch Winter Melon black and blue. Your youth is your biggest capital, you can do it!”
True Monarch Northern River: “For us cultivators, vanity is something useless. Furthermore… this event could contribute to tempering your mind. If things really go according to the reverse of Copper Trigram’s shady divination, the news of the defeat of the first Sage in a thousand years should spread all over the universe tomorrow; you can simply regard this event as something to further temper your will.”
For a while, the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ became the ‘Nine Provinces Chicken Soup For The Soul Group’.
All kinds of chicken soup for the soul that could overwhelm one with a warm feeling inside blew in Shuhang’s face. After all, Song Shuhang had only been cultivating for a short time, so the seniors in the group were concerned that his mind would be greatly affected.
Inside the Inner World.
Song Shuhang raised his head to look towards the sky as he said, “Heavens.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen covered her mouth as she chuckled softly.
While the seniors of the ‘Nine Provinces Chicken Soup For The Soul Group’ were busy thinking of how to comfort Song Shuhang, a message that was completely inconsistent with the rest popped up.
Fairy Heavenly Sound [Soft Feather]: “Senior Song, weren’t you holding a ‘sword’? How did you end up breaking Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s defense with a ‘saber strike’?”
Soft Feather was asking this question very seriously. She had just recovered from being muted when she saw Song Shuhang’s topic, so she happily asked this question.
In addition, her personal information note read, [September 4, 2019, dissatisfied. September 5, 6, and 7, missing.]
“Well, at least someone believes you,” Su Clan’s Sixteen said with a smile.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Just now, he was still thinking of changing his nickname in the group to [Song ‘Super Awesome’ Shuhang], but now he was too embarrassed to change it.
Fortunately, Soft Feather gave him a way out. Song Shuhang immediately took that opportunity and began explaining what had happened.
Tyrannical Song: “Actually, here’s what happened. Early this morning, I took Lady Onion back to her birthplace to dig for treasures. Then, along the way, I experienced various kinds of events. The video that Sixteen had sent a while ago was one of the ‘various kinds of events’ that took place tonight. After dealing with all of those events, a powerful teammate ended up temporarily joining my small party.”
Fairy Lychee: “Explain properly!”
Tyrannical Song: “To sum it all up, before I encountered Sage Monarch Winter Melon, I encountered a very awesome treasured sword. The sword is called ‘Scarlet Heaven Sword’, and it’s the weapon of the powerhouse that imparted the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯ to me. As long as Fellow Daoist Scarlet Heaven Sword is willing to cooperate with me, I can transcend my limits and slash out a powerful ❮ Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯. This was how I ended up winning when I encountered Sage Monarch Winter Melon earlier.”
Fairy Heavenly Sound [Soft Feather]: “Isn’t Scarlet Heaven Sword a ‘sword’? So how could it slash out the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming ‘Saber’ Technique❯?”
“It doesn’t stop there, because Fellow Daoist Scarlet Heaven Sword also mastered its own saber intent. To be honest, if it weren’t for it being Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s weapon already, I would really have taken a liking to it,” Song Shuhang said, filled with emotion.
A sword that could be used as a saber, how cool.
Fairy Heavenly Sound [Soft Feather]: “Awesome, I really want to see this sword that mastered its own saber intent.”
Venerable Spirit Butterfly: “Wait until you consolidate your realm first.”
Venerable Spirit Butterfly came online and showed his presence. After all, he was preparing to transcend his tribulation and charge towards the Eighth Stage Realm before the end of the month. During this period of time, he had to show his presence as much as possible.
“I know, father,” Fairy Heavenly Sound [Soft Feather] said while giggling.
Fairy Lychee: “Ah… so, little friend Shuhang, you really cut down Sage Monarch Winter Melon in one fell swoop?”
Song Shuhang replied, “Yeah. If nothing goes wrong… it will definitely be the top news on the Daily Cultivator tomorrow.”
“You really beat up Sage Monarch Winter Melon?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator still couldn’t come to his senses.
Song Shuhang: “Nothing of that sort, everything was decided in a single move. I used Scarlet Heaven Sword and successfully shocked Sage Monarch Winter Melon.”
True Monarch Fallout asked, “Can you use that borrowed saber technique repeatedly?”
Song Shuhang: “It can’t be used repeatedly within a short period of time. The time Fellow Daoist Scarlet Heaven Sword needs to recover and the limits of my physical body have to be taken into consideration.”
Fairy Dongfang Six: “If little friend Song Shuhang really won… Then, tomorrow, the reporters of the various cultivation channels will definitely spread this news to the entire world of cultivation. Is it really going to go as how Immortal Master Copper Trigram had divined?”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator swiftly said, “Does this mean that the shady divination wasn’t actually shady? This is unscientific!”
Island Master Tian Tiankong: “I have a guess. Could it be that Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram told us the opposite of the results of his divination?”
Vice-Island Master Tian Tianwei: “As long as his divinations are interpreted in reverse, Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram’s predictions are terrifyingly accurate.”
“That’s impossible. Even if the entire world were to burn, Copper Trigram wouldn’t say the reverse of his own divination,” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said resolutely. Although he and Copper Trigram were sworn enemies in the group, he was the one that knew his character the best.
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da said, “There is still another possibility. Don’t you all remember? At that time, it was Immortal Fortune Teller Iron Trigram’s account that went online. Could it be that it was Iron Trigram that did the divination?”
When Guo Da spoke, the entire group suddenly went quiet once again.
After a few seconds.
True Monarch Northern River: “WTF, Guo Da, why didn’t you send those dog pictures when you showed up? I subconsciously stopped chatting to wait for you to send that picture of a dog being rubbed before talking again.”
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da: “…”
There are occasionally two or three days every month when I don’t want to make a fool out of myself, alright?
At this time, Immortal Fortune Teller Iron Trigram went online, and said, “It wasn’t me.”
Song Shuhang received the system prompt that Iron Trigram went online.
Immortal Fortune Teller Iron Trigram rarely popped up in the group—perhaps it was because his teacher, Immortal Master Copper Trigram, had too strong of a presence and had too many enemies, causing him to keep as low a profile as possible.
Over time, his account would sometimes become his teacher’s smurf. After getting banned, he would sometimes log on to his account to go online.
Island Master Tian Tiankong: “So it wasn’t Iron Trigram’s divination… Then it was really Copper Trigram’s divination. This time, Copper Trigram was actually right… Is the world going to end soon?”
Vice-Island Master Tian Tianwei: “If that’s the case, little friend Song Shuhang, from now onwards, you’ve become the terminator of Copper Trigram’s shady divinations, super awesome!”
Song Shuhang saw this and felt great joy well up within him.
After chatting for so long, there was finally a senior who got the point.
Su Clan’s Sixteen looked at the contents of the chat in the group and smiled.
Honestly speaking, Song Shuhang seemed to be even happier now than after he defeated Sage Monarch Winter Melon in that ‘one move to decide everything’ duel.
Obviously, Song Shuhang was more content with becoming the ‘terminator of Copper Trigram’s shady divinations’ than ‘settling things with Sage Monarch Winter Melon’.
Inside the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
“If that shady fortune teller suddenly no longer does shady divinations, is there still something that sets him apart from others?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said with indescribable sorrow.
Fairy Lychee immediately replied, “There is. Remember his countless transformations? He can be a man or a woman, and transform into anyone he wants.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “With his countless transformations, he can indeed be whoever he chooses to be… but if you carefully think about it, you will find that he does not have his own characteristics. Everything about him, including his character, personality, voice, appearance, and even gender, can all be false. In the past, we could still distinguish Copper Trigram using his shady divinations. If he loses the attribute of ‘shady fortune teller’, then Copper Trigram will definitely become the most bland and presenceless person in the group.”
When the Bright Moon Appears: “…”
Scholar Drunken XXX popped up with force, angrily showing his presence, as if he wanted to prove something.
Fairy Lychee said, “Unfortunately, Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram Taoist isn’t online. If he was online, we could directly ask him what’s the deal with his divination.”
While Fairy Lychee was talking, a group member who had not been online for quite a while had come out.
“F*CK!” As soon as Scholar Xian Gong appeared, he sent a gigantic ‘F*CK’.
Since the demodragon medicine refinement and ❮Apocalypse War❯’s shooting, Scholar Xian Gong quietly found a place to strengthen his physique and transcend his tribulation.
Due to the trauma he suffered after getting bombed by nuclear weapons when he was closing up before, Scholar Xian Gong had specifically chosen to transcend his tribulation at a ‘nuclear-free zone’ this time—it was unknown if there really weren’t any nuclear weapons, but he would at least try to invite some good luck.
Scholar Xian Gong had considered transcending his tribulation in space, but after much consideration, he still decided to have it on Earth, where he had more control.
Everything was prepared, so when his physique reached a satisfactory level, Scholar Xian Gong began to transcend the heavenly tribulation of the Seventh Stage. This heavenly tribulation came at him menacingly.
Seven days and seven nights had already passed since he started transcending the tribulation.
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “Senior Xian Gong, have you finished transcending your tribulation?”
“I didn’t expect to get a signal at this time. Perhaps it’s just so that I say a few last words… I may die soon, and there might not be much time left for me,” Scholar Xian Gong said using the voice function. “I’ve already spent seven days and seven nights transcending this heavenly tribulation, and it is getting weirder and weirder. Three or four days ago, the heavenly tribulation had changed into various weapons. Now, there’s even something that appears to be a nuclear bomb that has begun forming.”
Suddenly, the entire ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ went quiet once again.
Everyone knew that there was a deep wound in Scholar Xian Gong’s heart left there by the traumatic nuclear bomb incident. There was a time when whenever someone mentioned the word ‘nuclear bomb’ with him around, he would suddenly become very anxious.
Now, at the last juncture of Scholar Xian Gong’s tribulation, a ‘nuclear bomb’ had actually appeared?
Shouldn’t the ‘nuclear bomb’ be something that only appeared in the heavenly tribulation of the Eighth Stage? Why would it appear when Scholar Xian Gong was ascending to the Seventh Stage?
Could it be that Scholar Xian Gong’s life really had some fate with ‘nuclear objects’?
Scholar Xian Gong seized the moment to say his last few words. “I’ve no idea what has happened to the heavenly tribulation, but everyone should take note of the modernization of the heavenly tribulation when transcending.”
