The monster willow stretched out her own branches. Her branches, which were more dexterous than human hands, quickly picked off the fruits from the golden tree, and then she handed the fruits to her master.
She moved just as fast as an assembly line would. In the blink of an eye, half of the golden bayberries on the virtuous tree had already been picked. She packed the fruits into a wooden box, and handed the box to Senior White.
As a qualified ‘treasure picker’ monster pet, Qing Wu would always bring several spatial bags that had various equipment inside with her. Those equipment included more bottles, boxes, tanks, boxes, and other things that could also be used to hold treasures.
When it came to picking up treasures, she had already become a professional.
Senior White picked up a bayberry from the wooden box, placed it into his mouth, and his eyes narrowed.
The taste was very good.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Song Shuhang: “The fruit is actually edible!”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “I’m afraid that just like little friend Shuhang’s virtuous lamia, Senior White’s virtuous tree is also some kind of variation.”
Fairy Lychee: “I suddenly remembered Song Shuhang’s ‘Lotus Blossoming Tongue’ power which procures edible lotuses. Song Shuhang, you have corrupted Senior White.”
Why’s this pot (blame) being thrown on my head? What is this, some thousand-mile flying pot?
Song Shuhang didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as he said, “I can’t be blamed for this, can I? Besides… since this golden bayberry is actually edible, the practitioners from all over the universe should probably be very interested in this scene.”
True Monarch White Crane: “What scene?”
Song Shuhang: “The ‘pew, pew, pew’ scene.”
True Monarch White Crane: “Speak properly, bastard. Today, I’m really upset with you, alright? I’m burning with jealousy right now, do you know that?”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Song Shuhang: “You’ll know when you see it.”
True Monarch White Crane angrily said, “I keep on getting the feeling that you’re showing off to me. Tyrannical Song, let’s see what happens tonight. I’ll have you taste the power of a White Crane’s divine legs!”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber curiously said, “Eh? Wasn’t it the White Crane’s divine claws the last time? How did it suddenly become divine legs?”
Enraged, True Monarch White Crane said, “I’m a crane, a crane! A bird, and my legs are claws, are you trying to say something here?”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “Sorry, I’m not trying to say anything here. Actually, I just wanted to ask if the White Crane’s divine claws and White Crane’s divine legs were a set of unique skills.”
For some reason, Thrice Reckless felt that True Monarch White Crane was especially angry at him today… Did he somehow offend it today?
Song Shuhang: “Here it comes.”
True Monarch White Crane: “What?”
At this time, on the screen of the live broadcast, Senior White had unknowingly already placed seven or eight bayberries in his mouth. He was simply too fast, so nobody from the audience could clearly see his movements.
They could only see the flashes on the screen as Senior White’s two cheeks began to bulge.
In the next moment.
“Pew, pew, pew~” The cores were spat out by Senior White like bullets, all of them falling into another box by the side.
This box had been readied ever since the beginning by the monster willow Qing Wu.
The cores of virtuous bayberries were also golden and dazzling as all of them had been condensed from the power of virtue. From the monster willow Qing Wu’s perspective, these should also be treasures, and couldn’t be wasted. As such, she collected them; perhaps they could be useful elsewhere.
After that, the camera moved.
Senior White’s cheeks bulged once again.
“Pew, pew, pew~” The cores of the fruits fell into another box accurately once again.
For the practitioners in the universe, this was something they treated as a blessing, as it was not a problem for them to just sit still and watch Sage White eat bayberries and grow old.
Unfortunately, Senior White had no intention of continuing to let them have this ‘blessing’.
After two eating sessions, he suddenly stretched out his hand, and swept away the several boxes of bayberries.
Senior White lightly said, “Alright, this fruit can still be eaten after dinner. I’ll go have myself some proper food first.”
Behind him, the monster willow Qing Wu also stopped picking fruits.
Strangely, not only did the number of bayberries on the virtuous tree not decrease, but it even seemed like there had been an increase in their number.
This was because when Senior White was spitting out cores, another terrifying wave of light of virtue that came from all over the universe descended upon him.
This wave of light of virtue not only allowed the virtuous tree to grow by four or five meters and reach a height of 20 meters, but it also made the tree grow more fruits.
Qing Wu had already picked several boxes of bayberries, but her picking speed was simply not fast enough.
“Alright, that’s it. I’m leaving!” Senior White yelled at the Heavenly Tribulation Realm.
However, the light of virtue above his head was still desperately descending; it seemed that the light of virtue was still not done yet.
Senior White said, “Having this much light of virtue is useless. I don’t want it, I’ll be taking my leave first.”
In response to his words, greater amounts of light of virtue came at him violently. This likely happened because the practitioners of the universe had become more desperate to give him power of virtue.
The tree of virtue behind him grew bigger and bigger, and more and more golden bayberries appeared on it. If this were to continue, the tree would soon reach a height of 100 meters.
Senior White: “…”
After a while.
Senior White suddenly clapped his hands, and said, “Well, I guess I could try sharing it with others.”
After saying that, Senior White opened a crystal box, revealing a left arm.
This left arm was familiar to the practitioners from all over the universe—and that was because it came with its own story.
As long as they stared at it for a while, the practitioners would naturally come to realize that this was the arm of the first Sage in a thousand years, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song. It was just that they did not know why it appeared in the hands of Sage White.
Afterwards, Venerable White threw Song Shuhang’s left arm towards the virtuous tree. And so, Song Shuhang’s arm hung on a branch of the tree. As the huge amounts of power of virtue descended, a part of it fell onto Song Shuhang’s left arm and poured into it.
As Senior White had envisioned, as long as he was willing, the power of virtue that descended from the sky could enter Song Shuhang’s arm and become part of Song Shuhang’s virtue.
Senior White succeeded and nodded with satisfaction.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Life is truly unjust, nothing can compare to hanging from the southeast branch.”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “Shocking! Why is the left arm of the first Sage in a thousand years, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, hanging on a branch?!”
“Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless, that doesn’t quite work. This is how you do it…” Island Master Tian Tiankong said. “Shocking, there’s a Profound Sage-level left arm hanging on a branch! Why is this left arm hanging on a tree branch? Who is its owner? For what reason is it hanging on that big tree? Please check in on ‘The Nine Provinces Number One Group’s Discovery Channel’ at 5 o’clock tonight to find out the amazing secret behind this!”
Vice-Island Master Tian Tianwei: “Shocking, the left arm of the first Sage in a thousand years, Tyrannical Song, had actually been heartlessly hung on a giant tree. Who was the murderer that left behind Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s left arm? Please check in on ‘The Nine Provinces Number One Group’s Detective Channel’ at 6 o’clock tonight to get an analysis of the case of the left hand on the tree branch.”
Dongfang Snow: “I will give you some background music. A song I just found would be quite fitting, it’s old and interesting. Its lyrics are [Mischievous left hand~ Hu, huhuhu~ Mischievous left hand, hu, huhuhu]. It’s old but appropriate.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
You seniors are really having fun, aren’t you?
But his heart felt stifled.
One day, if he became an administrator of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, he would definitely have these patients who were severely ill with the Thrice Reckless disease have a taste of the small black room.
Wait a minute… Speaking of Thrice Reckless disease, his own condition was also rather problematic.
In the eyes of the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, could he also be a critically ill patient? That was truly depressing.
Going off on a tangent, Song Shuhang felt that his left arm had become slightly warm. It should be because of the great amounts of light of virtue that were pouring into it.
After his left arm returned, that power of virtue should be able to integrate itself into the virtual lamia, right?
In the Heavenly Tribulation Realm.
Senior White looked up at the growing tree of virtue behind him. The rain of virtue in the sky did not seem like it had any intention of stopping.
“Oh right, I almost forgot about him.” Senior White suddenly thought of another thing once again.
After saying that, he took out a large box that looked like a coffin.
When the large box opened, a pale cultivator was revealed within.
It was the third Sage in a thousand years—Profound Sage Eternity!
One of the three cowards.
At this moment, the practitioners from all over the universe fell into deep thought.
“Why is Profound Sage Eternity still in the Heavenly Tribulation Realm?”
“Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, who had transcended the tribulation together with him, has already returned to the main world!”
“I heard that Profound Sage Horizon and Profound Sage Seven Lives Talisman also came back. Why didn’t Profound Sage Eternity return? Also, he seems to be in quite a perilous state.”
“His face is very pale, it seems like he’s been struck by inner demons!”
Some of the old Profound Sages already understood the reasons behind this.
Eternity had not taken the ‘Profound Sage Speech’ seriously. During his Profound Sage Speech, he had actually taken the opportunity to confess to ‘Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’.
If Eternity himself had had a huge amount of power of virtue like Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, he would have been fine. However, that was not the case. And so, after he finished with his confession, he did not have the power of virtue to offset the inner demon tribulation.
It seemed that Eternity had been in this state, and had been unable to extricate himself from it ever since the day when he had shown his divinity.
“Bie Xue~ Bie Xue~ Don’t leave me,” Eternity murmured. His voice was very soft, so nobody could hear him except for Venerable White who was right beside him.
Senior White squeezed his chin. This guy was an admirer of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue?
“Then, for Fellow Daoist Bie Xue’s sake, let me help you,” Venerable White said. He extended his hand and threw Eternity onto the tree, allowing him to hang together with Song Shuhang’s left arm.
In the sky, a huge power of virtue came falling down; some fell onto Song Shuhang’s left hand, and some fell onto Eternity.
Eternity was still currently trapped in the inner demon tribulation, so Senior White hoped that the light of virtue could help him.
“All things contrived are like a dream, illusion, bubble, shadow, and as dewdrop or lightning, they should be regarded as such.
“Everything is illusory. Everything is empty.
“Emptiness, illusion, everything is false.”
These words came from Eternity’s mouth as he began to recite.
Senior White glanced at him.
This guy… what lines is he reading?
There’s no saving him. Even if he can get through this inner demon tribulation, I’m afraid that his principles will be reshaped…
This time, Eternity’s voice became relatively loud, and the practitioners from all over the universe could hear his voice.
“Expressing one’s love brings one to death much quicker!”
Right beside Song Shuhang…
The Great Northern Emperor watched Venerable White’s speech from the beginning to the end.
“Isn’t this Sage White’s luck a bit too strange?” the great emperor muttered to himself.
