You two, did you set an appointment to transcend the tribulation? Transcending the tribulation as a group is not a joke!
Little Cai said, “What should I do, Teacher? I don’t seem to have any control over my realm.”
Song Shuhang, who was still lying on the ground, said, “Don’t worry, Little Cai, try suppressing your realm first. Are any of Daoist Priest Horizon’s ‘tribulation-avoidance techniques’ from his speech suitable for you?”
Little Cai’s realm had mostly been built from today’s ceremonial formation and the Eighth Stage Sage whale feast, so it wasn’t strange that she was lacking control over it.
An analogy for this was upgrading the hardware, but not upgrading the operating system software.
Even her tribulation-transcending formation had yet to be prepared.
Under such circumstances, if she were to attempt to transcend her tribulation, let alone having a 90% chance of dying, it would be closer to a 100% chance of dying. She was simply going to feed herself to the heavenly tribulation.
Little Cai shook her head, and said, “The tribulation-avoidance techniques that Senior Horizon taught are mostly suitable for human cultivators. Moreover, the several ones which are suitable for monster cultivators aren’t suitable for me.”
Due to Senior White’s sudden emergence in Daoist Priest Horizon’s [Profound Sage Speech], he had attracted most of Little Cai’s attention. As for what Daoist Priest Horizon said after White got there, she couldn’t remember.
Song Shuhang rubbed his temples in distress.
It was unfortunate that he wasn’t Young Master Phoenix Slayer; otherwise, he could just lend his CPU to Little Cai so that she could directly become an expert when it came to the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯, ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯, ❮Steel Hands Technique❯, and the several saber techniques.
Other than Little Cai, there was still Lady Onion who was yelling inside his Inner World. Her heavenly tribulation of the Third Stage was about to descend, and her situation was almost exactly the same as that of Little Cai.
All kinds of hidden dangers would appear during the heavenly tribulation for someone who had built up their realm through treasures.
Song Shuhang patted Senior White’s big cocoon, and said, “Senior White, stop sleeping for a moment, a situation has come up. Little Cai and Lady Onion are going to be transcending their tribulation soon. Is there a way to solve this problem?”
However, he wasn’t even able to wait for Senior White to reply when the Great Northern Emperor, who was at the side, placed down his bowl and smiled slightly. “Shuhang, you don’t need to disturb Fellow Daoist Sage White’s sleep. You can let me handle such a trivial matter.”
Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up. Still lying down, he said to the Great Northern Emperor, “Then my disciple, Little Cai, will be troubling Senior Beifang.”
The Great Northern Emperor smiled, looked at Little Cai, and asked, “Little Cai the Virtuous Buddhist Sabersman, right? Alright, I’ll ask you this first: do you want to transcend your tribulation now? Or would you prefer to seal your cultivation and prepare yourself before transcending your tribulation some other time in the future?”
Little Cai blinked.
Do you even need to ask?
Of course I’m going to choose to transcend my tribulation immediately! A powerful person like the Great Northern Emperor is better than any tribulation-transcending formation. If I were to miss this chance, I would never be presented with such an opportunity again!
“Replying to the Great Emperor, Little Cai wants to transcend her tribulation right away! Please provide your instructions!” Little Cai’s voice was firm and strong.
The Great Northern Emperor chuckled. “Little Cai, your mind is pretty quick. You made the right choice as it isn’t that difficult to transcend the heavenly tribulation of the Fourth Stage. I’ll be teaching you a technique for transcending the tribulation. This technique will allow you to mobilize all the energy in your body, including your monster power, power of virtue, and the power of your bloodline. It will transform all of them, making it a very practical defensive technique. As long as the tribulation isn’t too overpowered, you will definitely be able to transcend it. Though if the heavenly tribulation is really overpowered, then I’ll disperse it for you.”
Such words were truly worthy of the Great Northern Emperor, an Immortal of the ancient era, one who could even be called an ‘Emperor’ in the ancient Heavenly City. To him, the heavenly tribulation of the Fourth Stage was something he could get through with slight effort.
Little Cai asked, “Can I learn it now?”
The Great Northern Emperor laughed, and said, “Rest assured, this technique isn’t difficult.”
After saying that, he turned his head to look at Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, and said, “Fairy Bie Xue, can you delay the serving of the next ‘Eighth Stage Sage whale feast’ a bit? This won’t take that long.”
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue replied, “No problem, I can control the heat a little bit. In fact, the next few dishes are going to taste better after using slow heat.” While saying that, she made a hand seal and remotely controlled the heat in the kitchen.
The Great Northern Emperor beckoned towards Little Cai. “Come here, I’ll teach you the tribulation-transcending technique now. However, the posture for this technique is fairly unique, I hope you don’t mind.”
“As long as I can transcend the tribulation, then it’s alright. It doesn’t matter what the posture I have to assume is.” Little Cai patted her chest with her wings.
Honestly speaking, this pose was especially similar to the posture in the recent popular Internet expression [Do you not have a conscience?1].
“This tribulation-transcending technique was created by a junior of mine. She was a genius who took an unusual path, but unfortunately…” As he was halfway through what he was going to say, the Great Northern Emperor sighed, and no longer continued on this topic.
He turned to Little Cai, and said, “Get ready, I will impart the operation route for this technique to you now.”
Little Cai shouted, “I’m ready!”
As soon as she said this, the Great Northern Emperor extended his hand and touched her forehead.
In the next moment, there was a complicated set of ‘true qi and monster power’ operation routes that was transferred into her mind through the Great Emperor’s finger. This set of operation routes was very peculiar. Together with it came an incantation composed of seven runes.
This impartation technique was truly of a high level.
“While it’s still fresh in your memory, quickly go ahead and try it out,” said The Great Northern Emperor.
“Yes.” Little Cai swiftly moved the monster power in her body and made it follow the operation route of the technique to make a round around her body.
It ran smoothly, almost without any obstacles. When the round was completed, Little Cai could feel that her entire body was filled with strength, and her entire being was seemingly in a state of ‘extreme defense’. She had the confidence to face any blow.
Little Cai said, “There isn’t a problem, Great Emperor, the operation route for the technique has worked successfully.”
The Great Northern Emperor said, “Good, there wasn’t any mistake. Let’s go out and prepare for your transcension of the tribulation.”
As such, Little Cai, Shi, the Great Northern Emperor, and Immortal Fairy Bie Xue all left the immortal cave and went outside to transcend the tribulation.
Su Clan’s Sixteen continued to kneel beside Song Shuhang, and did not follow the others.
As Song Shuhang was still being crushed by Senior White’s cocoon, he was unable to move.
Song Shuhang asked, “Sixteen, don’t you want to go out and watch?”
Su Clan’s Sixteen replied, “I’ll just accompany you and watch the live broadcast.”
Song Shuhang ordered the whale-riding virtuous lamia to follow the others out of the immortal cave to watch Little Cai’s transcension and stream a ‘live broadcast’ for him.
“Shuhang, Shuhang! What about me? What should I do? I’m also about to transcend my tribulation,” Lady Onion yelled from the Inner World. Read the next chapter on our vipnovel.com
Song Shuhang replied, “There’s no rush, we’ll do this one by one.”
He checked on Lady Onion’s state, and though she was already at the stage of having to transcend her tribulation, she could still hold on for a while.
Speaking of the Inner World, a thought suddenly came to Song Shuhang’s mind. “Heavens, wait!”
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “What’s up?”
Song Shuhang said, “I have the Inner World!” When Senior White’s cocoon came crashing down on him, he could have simply escaped into his Inner World to avoid it.
His Inner World was so powerful that even an Immortal’s spatial interference could not completely block the connection it had with him.
Only, when Senior White’s giant cocoon suppressed him, Song Shuhang’s body instinctively recalled the fear of being crushed from when he’d been at the scholarly faction’s plaza. As such, he did not remember the Inner World’s special ability in time, and could not avoid the suppression of the cocoon.
Song Shuhang said, “Let me try it out.”
He willed it and transferred his body into the Inner World.
It was a success!
The suppressive seal did not have any spatial power, and Song Shuhang was able to successfully escape.
Song Shuhang laughed, and said, “Hahahaha, just as I thought. Next, as long as I go back from the Inner World, I should be able to get rid of the suppression of Senior White’s cocoon.”
He definitely was Song ‘Super Smart’ Shuhang.
Afterward, he willed it and returned to the main world.
In the next moment, he screamed, “Ahhhh~ my waist, my waist~ it’s going to break!”
When he returned to the main world, he reappeared under Senior White’s giant cocoon—even the posture was the same as before. The giant cocoon continued to crush his waist hard.
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “…”
Song Shuhang smiled bitterly, and said, “Heavens, although I indeed have to reappear where I left, why did I appear under the giant cocoon again? With my current control of the Inner World, I should have been able to move the coordinates by a certain distance.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen blinked, and said, “Perhaps it’s due to Senior White’s luck? No matter how you move, you won’t be able to escape the result of being crushed by the giant cocoon.”
When Song Shuhang had entered the Inner World just now, Senior White’s cocoon didn’t drop to the ground at all. The giant cocoon remained suspended in mid-air like it was waiting for Song Shuhang to reappear… After that, the giant cocoon fell once again and crushed Song Shuhang’s waist.
Song Shuhang sighed, and said, “Heavens, how unfortunate.”
Sixteen said, “Do you want some more soup? Ah~ Open your mouth.”
Song Shuhang raised his head stiffly. “Ah~”
At this time, outside Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s immortal cave.
In the skies, the heavenly tribulation had begun to gather. Everyone stayed away from Little Cai to avoid affecting her heavenly tribulation.
Little Cai murmured, “My heavenly tribulation of the Fourth Stage… I wonder how it will change after having modernized?”
“Modernized?” the Great Northern Emperor asked in confusion.
Loli Shi said, “Don’t you know, Senior? The heavenly tribulation has now modernized. Various kinds of heavenly tribulation tanks, heavenly tribulation planes, and even heavenly tribulation nuclear bombs have emerged from it endlessly. When Senior Brother Song and the others crossed their tribulation, they encountered an Eighth Stage-level hydrogen bomb that almost wiped them out.”
The Great Northern Emperor replied, “I went to a special secret realm in the past few days to gather the materials for the Ice Soul Pill, and I’ve just returned today. In just a few days, so many things actually have happened… No wonder little friend Shuhang already had a Sage Seal when I met him. I’ve been wondering about that for a while now.”
The Great Northern Emperor’s special secret realm was similar to the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’. In those kinds of places, even the ‘divinity show’ would not be shown.
