Chapter 1178: Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s respectful bow

Translator: GodBrandy  Editor: Kurisu

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue questioned if there was something wrong with her ears.

Did Senior Melon Eater say that this is his body? Is the ‘body’ he’s talking about the Eighth Stage Profound Sage-level whale that he has just cut up a few moments back?

While Immortal Fairy Bie Xue was doubting her ears, Sage Monarch Melon Eater took out an incomparably huge liver.

The Great Northern Emperor gave a part of the whale’s meat and a part of the internal organs to Immortal Fairy Bie Xue.

“This is my liver, which is actually smaller than I expected. You should know that my body is comparable in size to an island, but this liver is surprisingly only this big. If it weren’t for my unique race, I might have thought that I had liver sclerosis, which would have caused my liver to shrink,” Sage Monarch Melon Eater said calmly as he fiddled with the huge liver. “Fairy Bie Xue, what should I do with my liver? Slice it?”

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s hairs stood on end as she asked, “This is really your body?”

Sage Monarch Melon Eater calmly said, “Well, if we’re going to exclude me, it would be very difficult to find another whale of the Profound Sage level with the bloodline of the divine whale in this world.”

At this time, ten thousand horses were stampeding around in Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s heart.

While I’m cooking, the ingredient itself is helping me? How am I supposed to cooperate with him? Send help, quick!

“Senior, I’m going to be cooking your body, are you not disturbed in any way?” The corners of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s mouth twitched. If it wasn’t for the calm expression of Sage Monarch Melon Eater, she would have wondered if Sage Monarch Melon Eater was going to kill her.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater calmly said, “Mm-hm, rest assured, I don’t have any malicious intentions. This old body of mine is something I abandoned with the help of Senior Beifang’s formation. Now, I’m in a fairly strange state that makes me really calm. As such, I want to learn more about my new self and see what happens when I watch my own body being cooked. However… so far, there haven’t been any fluctuations in my heart.”

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue: “…”

Senior Melon Eater wants to help me cook his body… is he going to eat it as well?

Can I change assistant? This Senior Melon Eater is too scary!

“Should I slice it?” Sage Monarch Melon Eater asked again as he clutched the huge liver.

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue quickly shook her head.

“Oh, what else can I help with?” Sage Monarch Melon Eater asked with an indifferent expression.

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue pointed at the pile of whale meat that had been cut into pieces. “Senior, please carefully put them into the first pot and let them cook there. Inside the pot are the ingredients that I have prepared beforehand… This is the first procedure.”

“Leave it to me,” Sage Monarch Melon Eater said, and went toward the first pot.

After that, he laid the sliced whale meat flat inside the pot with a calm face.

The pot was also a magical treasure—though it looked small, it was able to hold all the whale meat without a problem.

Later, Sage Monarch Melon Eater stood blankly in front of the first pot. After he saw the ingredients which Immortal Fairy Bie Xue had prepared beforehand, he wrapped the whale meat with the other ingredients.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater suddenly said, “Were the emotions of that buddhist who had sacrificed his own flesh for the lives of others1 the same as mine?”

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue: “…”

Sage Monarch Melon Eater lightly said, “Despite clearly watching my own body being boiled in a pot, my mind remains completely unperturbed. Sure enough, this new body of mine has brought me to be in a rather unusual state. It feels like I’m being forced to be in a ‘Sage Mode’, which causes me to be indifferent to everything that has no direct impact on myself.”

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue suggested, “Senior, perhaps you need a good rest. Maybe you should take a nap or just relax?”

Sage Monarch Melon Eater said, “What you said does make sense. Perhaps it’s due to having finally, after a thousand years, found a way to ascend to the Ninth Stage that I’ve become overexcited, causing me to enter this ‘Sage Mode’.”

As they were talking, he suddenly looked down at the whale meat in the pot that was being stewed.

After that, he calmed down and went on without saying another word.

After a long time passed…

“I’ve got it, so this is the case! I finally understand!” Suddenly, the corners of Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s mouth rose.

“With my old self already having been abandoned, and this new me having come out of that old self, I now see myself anew.

“Now, virtue is me, and I am virtue… but in the end, I am not virtue.

“As I am not virtue, I’m Melon Eater, but I’m also not Melon Eater—in the end, I am I, and I am still Melon Eater!

“Seeing mountains as mountains, seeing mountains as not mountains, but still seeing mountains as mountains,” Sage Monarch Melon Eater said at a very fast pace.

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue was confused.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater said, “Thank you, Fellow Daoist Bie Xue. I now understand.”

After he said that, light of virtue was released from his body and enveloped him, turning him into a moving light source.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater strode out, leaving Immortal Fairy Bie Xue with a confused face.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater exited the kitchen and went to the Great Northern Emperor, Song Shuhang, and Sage White.

“Thank you, Senior Beifang. And thank you, Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song.” He politely bowed to the Great Northern Emperor and Song Shuhang to express his gratitude.

Song Shuhang was puzzled.

The Great Northern Emperor asked, “What have you realized?”

After this guy went in and sliced his old body… did he realize something? This enlightenment was quite strange.

“I’m Melon Eater, and I’m not Melon Eater. But in the end, I’m still Melon Eater.” Sage Monarch Melon Eater revealed a slight smile.

Song Shuhang: “…”

The Great Northern Emperor fell into thought. The scene was familiar, as Fairy @#%× had also said something like this in the past.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater politely bowed to the figure behind Song Shuhang, and said, “Fairy maiden, thank you for giving me this opportunity.”

Song Shuhang turned his head and found that the virtuous lamia had appeared behind him without him knowing.

At this time, her head was tilted as she looked at Sage Monarch Melon Eater.

Song Shuhang was puzzled, and was just about to pose a question when…

…Sage Monarch Melon Eater took the initiative to explain. “After I abandoned my fleshly body, my newly born virtuous body came into contact with some kind of mysterious network. Within this virtuous network is countless information. And, this unimaginable quantity of information came rushing into my mind. Because of this, I ended up entering a state of absolute calmness, seemingly as a response to assimilating such a large amount of information. However, when I was no longer confused and was able to determine that I am still ‘Melon Eater’, I was able to slightly recover from that state. At the same time, I was able to receive a lot more information from that virtuous network.”

Though Sage Monarch Melon Eater was still affected by the ‘Sage Mode’, he was doing much better than before.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater calmly said, “Before me, this fairy maiden also came into contact with this virtuous network. This network contains a path to immortality, and it is a path to immortality without an owner. Which means that as long as I accept this network and the information within it, and practice every day, I have hope to achieve immortality. This fairy maiden chose not to tread this path to immortality, but I decided to accept it.”

“Congratulations, Fellow Daoist Melon Eater,” said Song Shuhang—the Immortal Realm could be considered the ultimate goal of every practitioner in the universe. After all, there could only be one person who could finally take control of the Heaven’s Will.

There were a lot of Tribulation Transcenders in the world because not a lot of people were able to create their own path. Although they did indeed possess an extremely long lifespan, in the end, they were not immortal and would die. Sage Monarch Melon Eater was undoubtedly fortunate. Despite him only being at the Eighth Stage, he had already obtained a clear method to achieve immortality. If this news were to spread, there would definitely be countless Tribulation Transcenders whose eyes would go red in jealousy.

The Great Northern Emperor said, “I’m quite curious, what is this virtuous network?”

Why had Fairy @#%× not accepted this path to immortality in the past?

Sage Monarch Melon Eater replied, “I’m not exactly sure why this fairy maiden had not accepted his path to immortality… but when it comes to the virtuous network, how should I say this… It is spread all over the world, and one can only make contact with it after giving up their fleshly body and being reborn into a virtuous body. It is similar to a wireless network, just much, much, much bigger. So far, only this fairy and I have ever made contact with it. Perhaps this network had been created by the creator of the ❮Dual System Virtue Technique❯.”

The Great Northern Emperor frowned.

Fairy @#%× hadn’t mentioned anything about this virtuous network in the past.

Sage Monarch Melon Eater said, “I will be closing up for some time. Senior Beifang, Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, Sage White, we shall meet again at a later date.”

The Great Northern Emperor nodded, and said, “This is your fortune. I hope I will be able to see you on the path to immortality.”

Sage Monarch Melon Eater replied, “Thanks for the kind words, Senior Beifang.”

Finally, Sage Monarch Melon Eater gave a deep bow to White once again.

It was a very respectful bow.

With Melon Eater’s identity, his action towards White was very out of place. However, he went on with the action very seriously.

After which, without saying anything further, Sage Monarch Melon Eater rose into the sky, shrank into a small divine whale, and flew far away.

Senior White was puzzled.

He was also completely clueless as to why Sage Monarch Melon Eater had suddenly given him such a respectful bow.

When it came to their identities, the other party was an old Profound Sage.

In addition, Senior White had never provided any assistance to Sage Monarch Melon Eater…

Song Shuhang asked, “Senior White, did you secretly help Sage Monarch Melon Eater at some point in time?”

Senior White shook his head vigorously.

The Great Northern Emperor said, “Perhaps he had seen something in that ‘virtuous network’.”

Song Shuhang asked, “Like what?”

The Great Northern Emperor shrugged, and said, “How am I supposed to know?”

Song Shuhang was about to ask again when he heard Immortal Fairy Bie Xue shout from the kitchen. “Little friend Shuhang, come here and help me, I can’t do this alone!”

“Coming!” Song Shuhang hurried to the kitchen.

There was nothing he could do. The Great Northern Emperor and Senior White were both well-respected figures, so of course he was the one who had to attend to such things.

After running into the huge kitchen of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, Song Shuhang looked at her, and said, “Senior Bie Xue, how can I help you?”

“Try slicing this liver,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said without turning her head.

Song Shuhang responded, “Eh? I heard Senior Melon Eater say that he was going to slice the liver, but you refused his offer.”

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue felt like crying. “That Senior Melon Eater said that it was his liver, how could I possibly dare to let him cut it?”

“Good point,” said Song Shuhang.

After saying that, he lifted up a special knife and slashed at the liver with great force.


Sparks went flying.

This… was truly the liver of a being at the Eighth Stage!
