He wondered how the reporter from the Daily Cultivator wrote down the part about the duel at that time—he couldn’t have just made stuff up, right?
Thinking of Senior Copper Trigram’s shady divination, which could even tamper with cause and effect, the second part of the report couldn’t possibly be an entire article on Sage Monarch Melon Eater getting beaten up by ‘Winter Melon’ while having his appearance, right?
At this time, Soft Feather continued, “The report details that in the duel between Melon Eater and Winter Melon… both let out their roars with full momentum first. At that time, their roars were simply deafening. Towards the end of the duel, Sage Monarch Melon Eater used a virtuous secret technique to finally defeat Sage Monarch Winter Melon. Last night, Sage Monarch Winter Melon was defeated twice by sun-like attacks—the first time from Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s sword, which was as dazzling as the sun, and the second time from Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s virtuous secret technique, which literally created something that was a smaller version of the sun.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator asked, “That’s it?”
Honestly speaking, when Soft Feather mentioned that there was a second article, he thought that the plot would have been reversed.
Although Northern River’s Loose Cultivator and Immortal Master Copper Trigram had always been opponents, when it came to his shady divinations, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator could only admire Copper Trigram. This guy’s shady divinations could almost be said to tamper with karma itself.
“Mm-hm, that’s the end of the report. Sage Monarch Winter Melon experienced a two-game losing streak last night, but he also proved to everyone how strong his defenses are, and it can even be said that his purpose was achieved,” Soft Feather concluded with the final statement of the report.
“There wasn’t a reversal?” The other fellow daoists in the group reacted similar to True Monarch Northern River.
When Song Shuhang heard this, he was finally able to let out a breath of relief. It seemed that the reporter from the Daily Cultivator didn’t report any made-up things.
Fairy Lychee: “That is to say, this matter has already come to an end, and the development of the whole thing is the same as what Immortal Master Copper Trigram had divined! Song Shuhang not only forced Sage Monarch Winter Melon to retreat, but even beat him up when they fought head-on! Furthermore, he also made a name for himself in the world of cultivation; everything went as Copper Trigram’s divination had stated, and the name of the first Sage in a thousand years has been further established after this duel.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Copper Trigram was really able to divine a proper divination?”
Was Copper Trigram even himself without his shady divinations?
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “It might be as I had thought. Immortal Master Copper Trigram could still have reversed the result of his own divination, right?”
Scholar Xian Gong: “I just read through this month’s chat history from beginning to end. When Copper Trigram went online, it was through the account of Iron Trigram. As such, compiling everyone’s guesses, I was thinking… Could it be that someone else performed the divination at that time?”
Scholar Nuclear Bomb— ugh, Scholar Xian Gong was still recovering from his injuries.
He was like a patient who was wounded and couldn’t move. Hence, as he got rather bored, he read through the thick chat history of the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’, and read through the entire matter from start to end.
“You mean… someone like that divine beast senior who wanted to have a baby and thus captured Copper Trigram?” Fairy Lychee’s eyes lit up. That divine beast senior had extraordinary strength; perhaps that senior was an expert in divinations, and had used Iron Trigram’s account to go into the group and conduct a divination for Song Shuhang?
“I was wondering… With Copper Trigram living with that senior for quite a while, could it be that they managed to resolve Copper Trigram’s problem with shady divinations? As such, when Copper Trigram had done the divination for little friend Song Shuhang, perhaps that senior was kind enough to reverse the divination’s result for us?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator suddenly spoke his mind.
The fellow daoists in the Nine Provinces Number One Group felt that this was really possible.
If Copper Trigram no longer divined shady divinations, was he still Copper Trigram?
The reason this divination about little friend Song Shuhang was so accurate had to be because someone had tampered with it!
Soft Feather: “Honestly, we can just wait until the next time Senior Copper Trigram comes online to ask him. At that time, we would know the answer right away. How often does he come online? I’m quite curious whether he and that senior have already conceived a child or not.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said, “It should not be so fast… It’s only been a few days, right?”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “Northern River, you are too naive. There are some special races who can become pregnant in a single day and bear their children in five days. The bloodline of that divine beast senior is very special; maybe the next time we meet with him, there would already be a few little Copper Trigrams.”
At this time, Immortal Master Copper Trigram suddenly came online. “Thrice Reckless, go die! I curse you to have a son named little PeePee!”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “F*ck, Copper Trigram really came online?”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram replied, “I’ve gradually been able to understand a few things. As such, I can go online for a short while every now and then if I stand in my current position.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Have you already gotten a child?”
“Northern River, you go die as well!” Immortal Master Copper Trigram exclaimed. “Your first girlfriend didn’t really exist, and you’re going to be single your entire life!”
“That was an inner demon, not my first girlfriend! Moreover, I’ve already gotten past that inner demon.” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator also became angry.
Thrice Reckless: “Copper Trigram has a limited time online, stop talking about nonsense. Copper Trigram, we’ve got something to ask you. Were you the one who did that divination for little friend Song Shuhang before?”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “…”
Immortal Master did not answer the question…
Was he refusing to answer? Or was there something else going on behind the scenes that was making it difficult for him to reply?
Fairy Lychee: “Could it be inconvenient for you to answer?”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “…”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “It appears that there are really some secrets behind this. Well, it doesn’t matter, we already knew that there had to be some problem with this divination. All in all, you’re still the Copper Trigram who conducts shady divinations, we can now rest assured.”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “…”
At this time, Song Shuhang was notified that ‘Immortal Master Copper Trigram’ had gone online, and so he quickly went online as well and sent a message. “Senior Copper Trigram, you’re finally online. I’ve got a very urgent and important matter to ask you about.”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “What is it?”
Song Shuhang quickly asked, “Do you know the origin of that divine beast senior who took you away? Is there any relationship between her and the ancestral golden dragon of the dragon clan? Could you please ask her about this for me?”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “You know of the ancestral golden dragon?”
“I just found out a bit quite recently,” Song Shuhang replied.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “She said that she does indeed have some relation to the ancestral golden dragon. What do you want to ask her?”
Was the divine beast senior with Immortal Master Copper Trigram right now? The relationship between the two seemed to be closer than the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group imagined…
In addition… as expected, that senior appeared to be the divine beast with 36 forms on that scroll within the Dragon King Palace, and it really seemed like she was the favorite pet of the ancestral golden dragon.
Song Shuhang further asked, “Then, does she know of the relationship between the ancestral golden dragon and a guy with the nickname ‘Slow-Witted’?”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “She said that she refused to answer any questions related to a ‘Slow-Witted’. She also said that Slow-Witted should die 10,000 times.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Jiaojiao, I’ve done my best.
He’d originally planned on getting the location of the treasure left behind by Slow-Witted Song and the ancestral golden dragon from that senior through Immortal Master Copper Trigram. Unfortunately, this method did not seem like it was going to work.
It was apparent that the senior had a strong grudge against ‘Slow-Witted Song’, and refused to answer anything related to him.
How much of a mess did Slow-Witted Song make back then?
Song Shuhang’s heart felt somewhat stifled, beating irregularly.
Song Shuhang asked, “Alright, I won’t ask about anything related to ‘Slow-Witted’. Senior Copper Trigram, please help me again—can you ask if she knows anything about the ‘Divine Beast Department’?”
According to the messages left behind by the ancestral golden dragon and Slow-Witted Song in the Dragon King Palace, the inheritance of the ancient Heavenly City’s Divine Beast Department had been secretly moved out by Slow-Witted Song. Afterward, he divided the inheritance into a part that would stay in the light and a part that would stay in the dark.
It was clear that the ‘Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Sect’ was the one in the light; as for the inheritance of the Divine Beast Department lying hidden in the dark, he simply did not know anything about where it could be.
When it came to the inheritance of the Divine Beast Department, Slow-Witted Song did not conceal the matter from the ancestral golden dragon, so it was possible that the ancestral golden dragon and her favorite pet might know something.
A few moments later, Immortal Master Copper Trigram replied, “She asked if you wanted to know about the hidden inheritance of the Divine Beast Department.”
Song Shuhang: “Yes, yes, yes!”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram: “She said that she did have some clues and information on her hands. However, you’d have to pay a price that would satisfy her.”
“What does she require, Senior?” Song Shuhang asked.
“She needs a lot of things, whether it be holy medicine or materials that can cure wounds. She can tell you about the clues first, and it’s fine if you just slowly gather the materials. It will be a fair trade. If the materials you collect and provide at that time are precious, she will give you an equivalent reward,” said Immortal Master Copper Trigram.
Song Shuhang thought about it, and said, “It’s okay, no problem.”
“This information can only be imparted to you, little friend Song Shuhang,” said Immortal Master Copper Trigram.
Afterward, Immortal Master Copper Trigram privately sent Song Shuhang a message. “The ‘hidden inheritance’ of the Divine Beast Department is not in a ‘human’ practitioner’s possession. The hidden inheritance was given to a spirit beast and a monster beast, and they formed an alliance between monster cultivators and spirit beasts. The alliance is responsible for inheriting the complete inheritance of the Divine Beast Department. If you want to look into it, then this was what she recommended you to look into first.”
The hidden inheritance was left with a spirit beast and a monster beast?
This was an unexpected yet reasonable answer.
The Divine Beast Department originally had a close relationship with spirit beasts, with the experts of the Divine Beast Department having life-bound spirit beasts beside them.
As such, it was indeed appropriate for the hidden inheritance to be passed onto spirit beasts and monster cultivators.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram asked, “In addition, little friend Song, has Senior White transcended his tribulation yet?”
Song Shuhang: “Not yet, but he should be done soon. Due to the heavenly tribulation weapons being unable to explode in the main world, Senior White’s interest in them has greatly diminished, and so he should be done with his heavenly tribulation soon.”
Immortal Master Copper Trigram said, “I’m really looking forward to Senior White’s Profound Sage Speech. I almost ran out of time for staying online. I’ll see you soon. Perhaps I can meet you right on time for Senior White’s Profound Sage Speech.”
Song Shuhang: “Senior, will you be coming back this soon?”
…Was the baby already born?
Immortal Master Copper Trigram said with tears streaming down his face, “I should be able to come out for a while in a few days.”
After ending the conversation with Immortal Master Copper Trigram, Song Shuhang thought about it, and sent a note to Venerable White. [Senior White, are you done transcending the tribulation yet?]
Senior White quickly replied to Song Shuhang, but it was his clone who wrote the reply. [Almost. Currently, I’m just having my clone write the script for the ‘Profound Sage Speech’ that will be used for my show of divinity.]
Clones that could do homework instead of the main body? Please give me a dozen!
