The virtuous lamia appeared. This time, she was surprisingly calm and steady as she gracefully appeared behind Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang wondered if her ‘playing dead’ and ‘swallowing swords’ could have been Fairy ＠#％×’s hobby. Nonetheless, there was still the possibility that she only acquired such hobbies after transforming into a light of virtue.
After summoning her, Song Shuhang turned his body to face the virtuous lamia.
After that, he tried to communicate with her through their ‘mental connection’, and told her about the ❮Dual System Virtue Technique❯.
He had no choice since he couldn’t simply use words to communicate with the virtuous lamia in front of Sage Monarch Melon Eater—if that were to happen, he would surely be treated like a disabled person and looked at with compassionate eyes by Sage Monarch Winter Melon.
After a while…
The mental communication with the virtuous lamia unsurprisingly ended in failure.
At least at this point in time, the virtuous lamia still had yet to have the ability to communicate through mental means.
Song Shuhang sighed. How am I supposed to ‘ask’ the virtual lamia about the ❮Dual System Virtue Technique❯, then?
Currently, the virtuous lamia seemed to only have an instinctive response when encountering certain things.
Instinctive responses such as playing dead, swallowing a sword, and eating a divinatory bamboo stick.
As he thought about this, Song Shuhang’s eyes suddenly lit up. “Right, perhaps I could get her to instinctively react somehow?”
Since she could instinctively react to things, then maybe he could take advantage of that!
As such, Song Shuhang told Sage Monarch Melon Eater, “Fellow Daoist Melon Eater, could you demonstrate your technique?”
He didn’t use Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s technique’s name so as not to cause any unnecessary trouble. After all, someone else being able to recognize your secret cultivation technique from just taking a look at you was already terrifying enough.
Sage Monarch Melon Eater replied, “Demonstration? No problem.”
After saying that, he demonstrated the ❮Dual System Virtue Technique❯ in front of Song Shuhang.
When he activated the magical cultivation technique, a sheet of light of virtue emerged from Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s body, causing his body to have a golden sheen to it.
Song Shuhang found that Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s light of virtue was different from that of ordinary cultivators. His light of virtue was already integrated into his body, and they could be said to be inseparable.
In this way, even if he were to accumulate more light of virtue, there was no way he could get his light of virtue to materialize.
This was one of the reasons Sage Monarch Melon Eater was no longer able to switch to another cultivation technique.
Afterwards, Sage Monarch Melon Eater demonstrated several moves from the ❮Dual System Virtue Technique❯.
He demonstrated the classic ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯ and a strange set of fist techniques. Watching Sage Monarch Melon Eater in his fat whale form performing fist techniques was particularly strange.
With it only being a demonstration, all the magical techniques which Sage Monarch Melon Eater cast stopped at a certain point, and so the powerful ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯ scattered after an outline of it had formed.
After performing several other magical techniques, Sage Monarch Melon Eater began to demonstrate the secret technique ❮Virtuous Descent❯.
However, halfway through the demonstration, he stopped casting the technique.
This technique would have one possess the light of virtue of another person, and this would require the cooperation of someone else. At the scene, it appeared that the only one he could cooperate with was Song Shuhang.
But with his knowledge of the strangeness of Song Shuhang’s light of virtue… Melon Eater stopped halfway as he had no desire to go through that experience again.
When Sage Monarch Melon Eater used the secret technique ❮Virtuous Descent❯, Song Shuhang felt the virtuous lamia behind him react.
The virtuous lamia stretched out her hand, and began to cast the technique—she was casting the exact same secret technique which Sage Monarch Melon Eater had stopped casting halfway through.
Furthermore, the virtuous lamia demonstrated the full version of the secret technique, and not just the part that Sage Monarch Melon Eater had displayed earlier. Sure enough, the virtuous lamia seemed to have long known this technique. This was similar to when she had previously used the ❮Virtuous Giant Sun❯—it felt as if every time Sage Monarch Melon Eater used a magical technique, a skill icon that she already possessed would be relit.
When Sage Monarch Melon Eater saw this, his eyes suddenly widened. “Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, have you also learned the ❮Dual System Virtue Technique❯?”
If that wasn’t the case, then how could the virtuous empress materialization of Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song be able to execute the full version of the ❮Virtuous Descent❯?
However, what Profound Sage Tyrannical Song practiced was clearly not this cultivation technique.
Wait… could it be that Profound Sage Tyrannical Song has already paved out a new path?
This must be the case, this must be why that ‘divinatory stick’ reacted to Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song!
The more Sage Monarch Melon Eater thought about things, the more his thoughts seemed to be true to him.
Afterwards, while he was still in thought, the virtuous lamia finished casting the secret technique, and her will flew towards Sage Monarch Melon Eater!
Other than Song Shuhang, there was nobody else present with light of virtue besides Sage Monarch Melon Eater. The only other person there, Su Clan’s Sixteen, had not even a single strand of light of virtue.
“Huh? W-wait!” Sage Monarch Melon Eater was startled. “Don’t attach yourself to my body. I practice the ❮Dual System Virtue Technique❯, which has caused my physical state to change. My light of virtue and body have merged into one. It will be very troublesome if… Aaaaaahhh, F*CK!”
While he was still speaking, the will of the virtuous lamia forcibly descended on Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s light of virtue.
Subsequently, the virtuous lamia and Sage Monarch Melon Eater began a ‘tug-of-war’.
On Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s huge body, a light of virtue emerged—this light of virtue seemed to be condensing into something that looked like the ‘virtuous lamia’, but soon, this change was forcibly reversed.
The effect of the ❮Virtuous Descent❯ was to manifest oneself as a light of virtue using another being’s light of virtue.
The problem here was that Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s body and light of virtue were one. With this being the case, if the virtuous lamia insisted on continuing with what she was doing, his entire body would be transformed into a ‘body of virtue’.
This would be a very troublesome state.
“Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, quickly cancel the secret technique!” Sage Monarch Melon Eater said.
Song Shuhang: “…” I actually caused him more harm than good…
He turned to look at the virtuous lamia.
At this time, background music began to come from the virtuous lamia, and from it, a domineering female voice could be heard. “Veni! Vidi! Vici! I came! I saw! I conquered!”
Which TV series was this from?
In this way, the virtuous lamia continued to forcefully execute the secret technique, forcibly descending upon Sage Monarch Melon Eater; while Sage Monarch Melon Eater desperately resisted, rejecting the will of the virtuous lamia.
Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s body, which was still in its giant whale form, was extremely big.
As soon as he began to struggle, the ocean flipped over as huge waves came into being. Song Shuhang couldn’t keep his body steady as he repeatedly rushed to retreat.
Song Shuhang bitterly smiled. He first sent Su Clan’s Sixteen back into his Inner World to prevent her from getting affected by the waves.
“Another huge problem…” Song Shuhang could only feel a wave of fatigue come over him.
Whenever this kind of thing happened, he would find himself especially missing Venerable White.
If the near-omnipotent Venerable White were present, maybe the problem could have been solved smoothly. And if that didn’t work, Senior White Two would also be fine. Although Senior White Two tended to give a lot of conditions, he was, nonetheless, very reliable.
As Song Shuhang’s heart felt exhausted, a spatial gate opened in the air.
Afterwards, a foot came out of the spatial gate.
Even before the great expert had completely appeared from the spatial gate, there was already an overwhelming coldness that came out.
The pure, white-colored chill exited the spatial gate… and everything that it made contact with, including the waves, was frozen into ice.
In an instant, the entire portion of the ocean where Song Shuhang and Sage Monarch Melon Eater were located had been completely frozen.
“Hahahaha, little friend Song Shuhang, I’ve almost collected all the medicinal materials required for the ‘Ice Soul Pill’. I’m only missing one last ingredient. I will now accompany you to get it, and subsequently refine the pill that can let you heal the injury of the daughter of your friend.” A magnetic voice sounded out.
After that, the Great Northern Emperor stepped out of the spatial gate.
The great emperor was still extremely handsome. His face was still as delicate as an ice sculpture, while the cold qi behind him made his long hair appear silvery white.
When the great emperor wasn’t smiling, he would look like a cold-hearted beauty, and when he smiled, he would be akin to sunshine in the winter that made one feel especially warm.
Regardless, he was very handsome.
After spending many days, he had finally gathered the materials for the ‘Ice Soul Pill’.
As for the great emperor’s ability to lock onto his position, Song Shuhang was not surprised. After all, the Great Northern Emperor’s ‘Palace of Winter’ was still in his Inner World.
In addition, the great emperor came at just the right time!
With his divine power, he should have a way to separate the virtuous lamia from Sage Monarch Melon Eater.
Song Shuhang’s eyes shone as he prepared to ask the Great Northern Emperor for assistance.
The Great Northern Emperor stepped out of the spatial gate.
Consequently, with a glance, he saw the scene of the virtuous lamia having a ‘battle’ with Sage Monarch Melon Eater.
The situation didn’t look very good, as the virtuous lamia appeared to be on the losing side.
The Great Northern Emperor’s heart suddenly felt upset.
“How daring, a whale monster actually dares make a move on my good friend? Fairy ＠#%×, allow me to lend you a hand!” The great emperor’s face became grave, and he stretched out his hand to hit Sage Monarch Melon Eater without hesitation.
‘Don’t waste time, and just directly make a move if you can’—this was a saying that the strong of the ancient times had a habit of using. ‘Beat the person up first; only after doing so will there be an opportunity to reason things out.’ And if they were to be beaten to death, there would simply be no opportunity to reason things out anymore.
Unaware, Sage Monarch Melon Eater somehow ended up getting caught in the fire.
Seeing this, Song Shuhang hurriedly called out, “Wait a minute, Senior, there’s a misunderstanding here, a big misunderstanding.”
However, with the speed of the Great Northern Emperor’s move, Song Shuhang hadn’t even finished speaking yet when the emperor’s palm had already reached Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s body.
The chill even froze the space.
Miles upon miles of the ocean had frozen over.
Sage Monarch Melon Eater received the move, and was frozen into an ice statue…
The bone-chilling chill ignored Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s defenses, and directly entered his body. Even his consciousness had ended up becoming slightly dull from receiving this palm.
Sage Monarch Melon Eater was filled with sorrow.
At this moment, his heart was filled with 100,000 F*CK YOU, and he wanted to stamp onto Song Shuhang and the emperor’s face.
“A misunderstanding?” The Great Northern Emperor retracted his hand and turned to Song Shuhang in confusion.
At this time, because of that palm, the dazed Sage Monarch Melon Eater immediately lost the upper hand in the confrontation of the wills.
His will was overcome by the virtuous lamia.
After two breaths of time.
The virtuous lamia was successful in possessing his body, and so the secret technique ❮Virtuous Descent❯ had been successfully cast.
Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s huge body began to transform, but his body didn’t transform to look like the virtuous lamia; instead, the transformation resulted in a figure that appeared like a lamia riding a gigantic whale.
Wailord, use surf!
