As Song Shuhang and the others were busy paying attention to the live broadcast, nobody noticed the changes that were happening to the virtuous lamia behind them.
“Senior Copper Trigram’s shady divinations are stronger than I thought.” Song Shuhang clenched his teeth, helpless.
He thought that he had managed to put an end to Copper Trigram’s shady divinations, becoming [Song ‘Super Awesome’ Shuhang]. However, it seemed that Copper Trigram still got the last laugh in the end, and he was the same as before, [Song ‘Not So Awesome’ Shuhang].
In the live broadcast, Profound Sage Melon Eater—who had shrunk by an entire size and was now wearing Song Shuhang’s face—had no choice but to stand still and get beaten black and blue by Sage Monarch Winter Melon.
Perhaps tomorrow, this scene would be published by the reporters and spread throughout the cultivation world.
Song Shuhang sighed and said, “I wonder how the Daily Cultivator will deal with the events that took place today… Will they first publish the story of ‘Profound Sage Tyrannical Song beating up Sage Monarch Winter Melon’? Or would they first publish the story of ‘Profound Sage Winter Melon beating up Sage Monarch Melon Eater’?”
As he was talking, he suddenly felt that there was something wrong taking place behind him.
As such, he turned around.
The next moment, he was blinded.
Behind him, the virtuous lamia had turned into a dazzling giant sun. The golden light of virtue was shining so brightly that made it impossible for him to see, thus causing Song Shuhang to be suddenly blinded.
Wasn’t this the same sure-kill technique that Sage Monarch Melon Eater had used? This technique was not only powerful, but it also had the ‘Solar Flare’ effect of blinding people’s eyes.
How could the virtuous lamia have learned this move?
Song Shuhang hurriedly said, “Stop, stop right away.”
The move was too powerful, and it was not inferior to the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯ that he and Scarlet Heaven Sword had slashed out together. If he were to let the virtuous lamia continue using the ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯, only God knows what would happen.
After Song Shuhang gave the order, the growth of the ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯ the virtuous lamia had created slowly came to a stop, ending up as a small sun with a diameter of 2 meters.
The rays of light on the sun fluctuated making it look like it could explode at any moment.
Su Clan’s Sixteen, Shi, and Little Cai all slowly backed away from the virtuous lamia.
“Cancel the ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯ first,” Song Shuhang ordered.
Within the little sun, the virtuous lamia’s figure twisted slowly.
After about three breaths of time, the round and blinding little sun slowly vanished. After that, the virtuous lamia tilted her head and looked at Song Shuhang. The beauty mark at the corner of her eye made her look charming even when she was acting stupid.
Song Shuhang asked, “Did you learn how to use ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯ after watching Sage Monarch Melon Eater just now?”
However, a Profound Sage’s sure-kill technique such as that wasn’t like broadcast gymnastics, how in the world did she learn it so fast?
Or… could it be that the virtuous lamia originally knew the technique and she remembered about it after seeing Sage Monarch Melon Eater use it?
The virtuous lamia did not tilt her head to look cute once again. After hearing the name ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯, she stretched out her hands and rubbed her temples vigorously.
Could she be thinking?
Song Shuhang’s eyes brightened; he tried to roll his tongue to call out a name in the language of the ancient era, “Fairy ＠#％■?”
He had recently learned a few more phrases in the language of the ancient era, so he was now able to roll his tongue more naturally. However, this was the first time he tried to pronounce the name of the virtuous lamia.
Song Shuhang hoped that he could stimulate her by calling out her name.
Unfortunately… when he got to the last syllable, his tongue wasn’t rolled correctly, so he ended up mispronouncing her name.
The virtuous lamia raised her head and stared silently at Song Shuhang, her eyes seemed to have brightened up.
Was she finally going to experience some sort of change?
Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen stared nervously at the virtuous lamia.
At this time, gentle background music suddenly started coming from the virtuous lamia.
She opened her mouth, and in conjunction with the gentle music, she slowly said, “Even if I… forget your name, forget your appearance, I will never forget you. I’ve accompanied you in your past dreams, so I shall continue accompanying you in the future~”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “What’s she trying to say?”
Loli Shi replied, “She should be reciting a line from a movie I watched recently. It sounds quite familiar.”
The monster bird Little Cai said, “Teacher, did you mispronounce her name?”
Song Shuhang said, “Seems like it. I should have mispronounced the last syllable. But the pronunciation for that syllable is too weird, my tongue simply won’t curl the way I want it to.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen said, “Can’t you try calling out her name again?”
The state of the virtuous lamia was too weird… As such, Su Clan’s Sixteen hoped in her heart that the relationship between the lamia and Song Shuhang would become clearer for the benefit of everyone.
Song Shuhang rolled his tongue again and tried to call out her name, “Fairy＠#％◆? No, it’s wrong again.”
The eyes of the virtuous lamia narrowed.
“She reacted.” Shi was sharp-eyed and noticed that while Song Shuhang was reciting the first half of the virtuous lamia’s name in the ancient language, her expression was rapidly changing.
” Senior Brother Song, perhaps she’ll change when you recite her name correctly?” Shi said again.
Song Shuhang rubbed his cheeks.
After that, he tried again several times, but every time, he ended up failing at the last syllable.
Song Shuhang smiled bitterly and said, “If I continue, I’m afraid I’ll forget modern Mandarin as well; her name is simply too strange.”
While he was talking, the virtuous lamia, who was in front of him, suddenly moved.
She raised her head and stared at the ‘live broadcast’.
In the live broadcast, Profound Sage Melon Eater had been shattered once again under the laborious strikes of Sage Monarch Winter Melon.
However, just like before, after his virtuous body got shattered, he soon came back.
He was now half the size of how big he previously was, making him only a quarter as big as the original.
Sage Monarch Winter Melon asked, “Senior Melon Eater, do you want me to come at you again?”
Profound Sage Melon Eater: “…”
It seemed that each time he was taken down he would become half the size he previously was.
It looked like a few more deaths would release him from the secret technique.
But who really knew how many times he was going to be halved? It could be ten times? Or even a hundred times?
“No, you don’t have to come at me again.” Senior Melon Eater said slowly.
Sage Monarch Winter Melon asked, “Is it really fine not to deal with the secret technique?”
Melon Eater replied, “I’ve thought about it… and I’ve decided to bring this ‘virtuous body’ straight back to where my main body is. I need to take a closer look at what this ‘virtuous body’ exactly is. Perhaps… I can learn something useful from it.”
Melon Eater had already been stuck in the Profound Sage realm for a long time. He had thought that there was no longer any hope for him to reach the next realm, but now, he seemed to have found new hope.
Perhaps this was his chance.
But… he had to make haste.
His main body was still at Mount Hua, which was a fair distance away from here. Although possessing the ‘virtuous body’ secret technique was convenient, if the secret method was not canceled in time, there could be quite the dangerous aftereffects.
This was why he originally had wanted to deal with the secret technique and return quickly.
But now, he changed his mind.
He decided to directly return to his main body while in the virtuous body and study it. It no longer mattered if there were dangerous aftereffects. If this research could take him one step further toward the Tribulation Transcender Realm, then it would be worth suffering those strong aftereffects.
Melon Eater said gravely, “I don’t have much time, Winter Melon… continue treading forward on your own path. We shall meet again if fate wills it.”
Sage Monarch Winter Melon nodded and said, “All right. Take care, Senior Melon Eater!”
Profound Sage Melon Eater smiled slightly, then the virtuous body stood up, and flew towards the sky.
He flew and flew. He flew past mountains, past grasslands…
But then, he felt that something was wrong. “Strange, have I been flying in the wrong direction?”
Inside the Inner World.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s flight was indeed quite problematic. After going around in a circle, he flew straight towards Song Shuhang and the others before arriving right before the entrance to the Inner World.
Needless to say, it must be due to the influence of the virtuous lamia.
Soon, Sage Monarch Melon Eater descended to the ground.
He stood where Song Shuhang and the others used to be when they entered the Inner World. However, he had no way of entering the Inner World and could only go around it.
Shi asked, “Senior Brother Song, do we let him in?”
Song Shuhang shook his head.
The Inner World was his most important secret. As he and Sage Monarch Melon Eater were unfamiliar with each other, he naturally couldn’t let the other party in.
Song Shuhang asked, “I’ll go out and meet him. Fellow Daoist Scarlet Heaven, do you want to go with me?”
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Let me go, let me go! I’m telling you, I’m a divine weapon, I have dignity!”
The virtuous lamia lifted her head, a ‘gulp~’ sound could be heard as she swallowed Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Well, it looked like there was no need to ask Scarlet Heaven Sword to come. As long as he brought the virtuous lamia, Scarlet Heaven Sword had no choice but to accompany him out.
Sage Monarch Melon Eater stood in place, and suddenly got a strange feeling. As such, he no longer continued hurrying around, and instead, stopped and waited silently.
After a while, spatial fluctuations appeared before his eyes.
Later, a handsome young man appeared in front of him out of thin air. Behind this young man was a light of virtue that had transformed into a lamia.
Sage Monarch Melon Eater immediately recognized the young man.
The first Sage in a thousand years, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song.
After all, it was only the other day that the other party showed his divinity, and the content of his ‘Profound Sage Speech’ was also quite good.
“Greetings, Fellow Daoist Melon Eater.” Song Shuhang greeted Profound Sage Melon Eater as the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group greeted each other.
—At the same time, the corners of his mouth twitched. Because at this moment, Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s face looked just like his.
“Greetings, Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song.” Sage Monarch Melon Eater replied. Afterward, he asked, “Did Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song lead me here?”
Song Shuhang shook his head and said, “I didn’t really lead fellow daoist here. It’s just that when fellow daoist used his secret technique, you happened to descend on my light of virtue.”
Sage Monarch Melon Eater said, “So that’s the case. Then, fellow daoist, can you please take your virtue bac—”
Halfway through his words, he suddenly paused.
Afterward, he reached out and groped around his chest, and eventually found and brought out a divinatory bamboo stick.
