The Great Northern Emperor felt that his thinking speed wasn’t fast enough as he could clearly not keep up with Song Shuhang’s thoughts. Weren’t they talking about defensive magical treasures? How did railings suddenly come into the picture?
“Yep, guardrails,” Song Shuhang said happily.
The Great Northern Emperor asked, “Tell me, what are you going to do with a guardrail? Could it be that you want to make an immortal boat-like magical treasure?”
Song Shuhang shook his head. He took out a piece of paper from his spatial bracelet, on this paper was the design for the ‘treasured saber with guardrails’ that he had drawn not too long ago.
He had thought of several different types of guardrails.
Song Shuhang said, “Senior, look. If you were to add a guardrail onto a flying sword or a treasured saber, flying would be much safer. This would be especially helpful for people with a fear of heights, as adding such guardrails would allow them to feel more assured even if they were to be flying really high. As long as they have a hand on the guardrail, their hearts would be able to remain calm.”
The Great Northern Emperor: “…”
Are you f*cking kidding me? If you can already ride a flying sword, would you even be afraid of falling down?
Song Shuhang said, “Senior, is it possible? If I could use the whale bones to make guardrails, that would be great.” It was especially great with the body being Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s, which was as big as an island, casually picking a few bones would give him everything he needed.
The Great Northern Emperor: “…”
At the beginning, the great emperor wanted to personally make one or two magical treasures for Song Shuhang.
After all, he owed Song Shuhang a great deal. An ordinary Ice Soul Pill + curing the cold disease of that little girl named Li Yinzhu was nowhere near enough to repay Song Shuhang’s help in reviving him.
Even if the benefits from the large formation for Sage Monarch Melon Eater this time were to be added, the great emperor felt that what he had done was still not enough.
Therefore, he intended to forge one or two magical treasures for Song Shuhang in order to repay him for his revival.
However, after seeing him take out the design of the ‘treasured saber with guardrails’, the Great Northern Emperor immediately abandoned the idea of refining a magical treasure for Song Shuhang.
He was a great emperor of the ancient Heavenly City, an expert even amongst Immortals, and the weapon that he was going to forge for Song Shuhang was some flying sword with guardrails?
If this matter were to spread, he would lose all his face.
When others would ask Song Shuhang about where he got his flying sword with guardrails from, Song Shuhang would naturally reply: It was forged by the Great Northern Emperor.
If that were to happen, would he still have any dignity left?
As such, the Great Northern Emperor stretched out his hand and patted the dried whale with great force.
“Crack crack, crack…” Twenty bones by the whale’s tail were extracted and fell into the hands of the great emperor. At the same time, twenty hard scales similarly fell off little by little.
The Great Northern Emperor handed all the scales and whale bones to Song Shuhang and said, “Take it, try looking for an expert blacksmith and get them to forge the treasure for you. I feel that… your ‘flying saber with guardrails’ is very creative, these whale bones possess the strength of an Eighth Stage Profound Sage, making them very suitable for you. Go on, I have high expectations for you.”
Song Shuhang took the scales and whale bones, and regretfully said, “I thought that Senior was going to forge the magical treasure for me.”
“You think too much, I’m very busy. How can I have the spare time to do something like that?” The Great Northern Emperor said seriously—he was now completely denying his previous decision of forging anything for Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang said, “That’s also true. Well, thanks anyway, Senior.”
It was just about time for him to look for a master blacksmith. He still had the ‘invisible saber insect’ for offense, so he could afford to have Broken Tyrant modified to have guardrails. At that time, it would probably need a new name though, hm… Railed Tyrant?
Furthermore, the ‘Black Iron Godly Armor’, which he had exchanged for from Senior Northern River, could also be strengthened with the scales he now had on hand.
As Song Shuhang was in thought, the Great Northern Emperor entered into action and quickly dismantled Profound Sage Melon Eater’s body.
The scales, sharp claws, dragon tendons, whale bones, and other parts that could be used for forging treasures were all taken out and stored away. And so, after a while, a ‘dried whale’ was all that was left.
Though it was called ‘dried whale’, it wasn’t in such a bad state. It was just that when compared to the fat version of ‘Profound Sage Melon Eater’, this leftover could only be considered ‘dry’. However, it was different from a dried fish.
It was unknown what was going through Profound Sage Melon Eater’s mind right now, but he didn’t leave and stayed there, watching as the Great Northern Emperor dismantled his old body.
It was especially so with his expression remaining calm all the way, with there completely being no mood swings at all.
Profound Sage Melon Eater found that his thoughts now worked quite differently from before. After all, it was very reasonable for him to feel very upset as he watched his old body getting torn to pieces.
However, other than at the beginning, when he watched his whale bones be taken out and felt slightly stifled, nothing but a calm sensation pervaded his body. As such, he kept watching as his old body was dismantled, without a single wave appearing in his heart.
It was as if the event happening right in front of him had nothing to do with him at all.
My mind works in strange ways right now. Could this be an effect of my new body? Did it make me enter some sort of Sage mode? Profound Sage Melon Eater wondered.
Due to his confusion and curiosity, he really wanted to stay and watch as his ‘old body’ was eaten, and afterward see if he could still maintain this ‘unperturbed’ state of mind.
“It just happens to be time for lunch. Since I like steaming and braising, I can divide the hot pot into spicy and slightly spicy, with the two degrees of spiciness having different flavors,” the Great Northern Emperor said. He turned his head to look at Song Shuhang and asked, “Little friend Shuhang, what about you?”
“I wanna have a barbecue… Other than that, perhaps having some fish soup would also be nice?” Just when Song Shuhang finished speaking, he suddenly remembered that Profound Sage Melon Eater was still there, so he raised his head to look at the reborn Profound Sage Melon Eater, “…Fellow Daoist Melon Eater, are you alright?”
Profound Sage Melon Eater nodded and said, “I’m fine. Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, please feel free to continue. That old body of mine no longer has anything to do with me, you don’t need to watch your words.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Had Profound Sage Melon Eater always been this carefree?
The Great Northern Emperor said, “Alright, so four pots and two barbecue grills. Did you bring any seasoning?”
Song Shuhang: “Great emperor, are you also an immortal chef?”
The great emperor was going to cook personally?
“Huh? Little friend Shuhang, are you not one?” The Great Northern Emperor asked, “Don’t you have that monster onion with you? Isn’t that the kind of monster pet used for condiments by immortal chefs?”
Song Shuhang exclaimed, “Heavens.”
The Great Northern Emperor said, “It looks like you really aren’t one… Well, that’s unfortunate. You can’t eat this whale body unless it is processed by an immortal chef first. It seems like I’ll have to enjoy it by myself.”
Song Shuhang raised his hand and said, “Senior, in fact, I know Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, who’s a well-known immortal chef. She should be the best immortal chef in the current world of cultivation. Should we go look for her?”
The Great Northern Emperor was an Immortal-level being, and so he was capable of spatial teleportation and could instantly go to Immortal Fairy Bie Xue. In addition, when faced with this ‘Eighth Stage Profound Sage’ level ingredients, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue would definitely be moved!
Under the temptation of such a level of ingredients, even if Immortal Fairy Bie Xue had to postpone the immortal feast, there would definitely be no problem.
The Great Northern Emperor asked, “Her cooking’s really that good?”
Song Shuhang nodded and said, “Immortal Fairy Bie Xue is very famous in the world of cultivation, especially her immortal feast, which is a feast that every practitioner would dream of attending. Fellow Daoist Melon Eater should also have some knowledge on this.”
In the sky, Profound Sage Melon Eater nodded slightly—he had participated in Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s immortal feast several times, but he did not use his true identity and instead changed his identity to a loose cultivator, and he also suppressed his realm.
The Great Northern Emperor said, “Excellent, then what are you waiting for? Give me her coordinates, I’ll take us there right away.”
Song Shuhang said, “I’ll contact her first.”
He brought out his cell phone and called Immortal Fairy Bie Xue.
The call quickly connected.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said, “What’s the matter? Is White coming out already?”
Song Shuhang said, “Yes, Senior White is coming out soon.”
“Alright, I’ll prepare a table of immortal dishes for him to celebrate.” After saying this, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue hung up the call.
Song Shuhang: “…”
It seemed he had to give her another call.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue answered the phone, “I’m busy, what else do you want?”
“I have a very good ingredient on hand. Immortal Fairy, are you interested?” Song Shuhang said.
“Not interested, I’m busy.” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said this and hung up once again.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Heavens, I feel so tired, can’t I just have a normal conversation?
He gritted his teeth and called Immortal Fairy Bie Xue again.
“Do you want to be blacklisted?!” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said angrily. She was conducting a very important experiment. If it weren’t for Song Shuhang telling her that Venerable White was soon coming out, she would have long exploded into a rage.
Song Shuhang went straight to the point and said, “I have the body of a large Eighth Stage Profound Sage level whale that also possesses the bloodline of an ancient beast, it’s very fresh! Given Immortal Fairy’s cooking skills… how about it? Are you interested in taking up this challenge? Immortal Fairy, with your realm, will you be able to handle such a high-level ingredient? ”
“Little friend Shuhang, the weather is awesome today.” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s voice immediately changed and became as gentle as water as she said, “You came to the right person. In the current world of cultivators, nobody other than I, who have grasped these secret techniques, would be able to handle Eighth Stage level ingredients. Where are you? I’ll come to you right away.”
The best way to deal with an enraged woman was to give her what she desired…
Song Shuhang said, “I’ll come to you instead. Send me your coordinates, we’ll be there immediately.”
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said, “Alright, just wait a second. I’ll send you the coordinates.”
Song Shuhang said, “Great. Immortal Fairy, we want to have it steamed and braised, with spicy and slightly spicy for each, and we also want to have it barbecued and have fish soup.”
“As long as you have enough ingredients, then we can go with whatever you want,” said Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, her voice still as gentle as water.
Song Shuhang hung up the call and waited for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue to send him her coordinates.
But right at this time, Song Shuhang and the others had a strange feeling. They all raised their heads to look towards the sky.
This was the feeling one got when someone had just become a Profound Sage, and what came after was the ‘show of divinity’.
“Is it Senior White? But Senior White said that he would still take some time, and maybe take until the evening. Could it be that a different Profound Sage has ascended?” Song Shuhang wondered.
At the same moment, all the practitioners in the universe similarly raised their heads.
In the past few days, there had been a succession of Profound Sage showing their divinity. It seemed like it was a sign that a new crazy era was about to begin!
In a while, the Sixth Sage in a thousand years was also going to make his debut!
In the eyes of the various practitioners, a white-clothed figure with long hair that reached his back appeared.
This figure was so good-looking that some mere words expressing the concept of ‘beauty’ were not enough to describe him…
