After solving for the secret of the text that Slow-Witted Song had hidden in the (200 Must-have Skills for a Monster Spirit to Survive), Song Shuhang felt especially refreshed.
Having actually been able to solve a problem that had remained unsolved ever since the ancient era until now, he would naturally get a refreshing and satisfying feeling.
After that feeling passed, Song Shuhang suddenly felt troubled once again. Because after the refreshing feeling passed, he would have to face the anger of both Young Master Phoenix Slayer and Immortal Fairy Bie Xue.
I’m done for, completely done for.
What do I do next?
After the time limit of borrowing Young Master Phoenix Slayer’s CPU ends, am I just going to die by the hands of Young Master Phoenix Slayer and Immortal Fairy Bie Xue?
Don’t panic, calm down. A real man, even in the face of a tumultuous crisis, has to remain calm, think about a solution, and get through the crisis.
How can I deal with the anger of both Young Master Phoenix Slayer and Immortal Fairy Bie Xue?
For Young Master Phoenix Slayer… Maybe I can give him some more dried fish?
No, I doubt it would work now. I’ve already used it on Young Master Phoenix Slayer once; unless I can get my hands on a Ninth Stage dried fish, doing the same thing as before would have a much weaker effect.
To remind, an existence at the Ninth Stage-level would be able to kill him by simply spitting some saliva, so him wanting to get Ninth Stage dried fish was nothing but a dream.
(Song Shuhang + Ninth Stage fish small dried fish]
(Song Shuhang + Ninth Stage fish = dried Song Shuhang]
Other than dried fish, what else can I use to cool off the rage that a monster demon is in?
Monster cats are also cats, so… A yarn ball? A cat teaser stick?
Song Shuhang imagined himself throwing a ball of yarn and whipping around a cat teaser stick, while Young Master Phoenix Slayer went and pounced on the yarn ball and leaped after the cat teaser stick.
Urgh… why do I feel like I’d be just seeking death even more if I were to do that…
Maybe I can catch a cute mouse and give it to Young Master Phoenix Slayer to play with?
Something like a cute demonic hamster.
Perhaps Young Master Phoenix Slayer would be very interested in something like the demonic hamster.
However, another problem would arise. If he really did manage to catch the demonic hamster and give it to the Young Master Phoenix Slayer, on the following day he might end up becoming a pet captured by Senior White Two.
This formula is too complicated, so I won’t even list it down.
After giving it more though, Song Shuhang could not seem to figure out a solution to deal with the current Young Master Phoenix Slayer.
Heavens, should I use just use the ‘Fiercely Kneeling on the Ground and Surrendering Technique’ to try and apologize to Senior Phoenix Slayer?
While Song Shuhang’s thoughts were still in chaos.
The innate talent magical technique of Young Master Phoenix Slayer had lost effect.
Song Shuhang’s consciousness returned to his original body.
“Eh? How can it already be time?” Song Shuhang said in shock. Didn’t Senior Phoenix Slayer’s innate talent usually last for quite a while? Why was it so short this time?
“Hehehe.” Young Master Phoenix Slayer, who was still in his five-tailed monster cat form, smiled coldly, while his fifth tail slowly rose to an upright position. “It’s time for you to die, little friend Song Shuhang.”
Song Shuhang hurriedly said, “Wait, Senior Phoenix Slayer, in fact, I can’t be blamed for this matter. I reminded you several times that we should either find a place without people or go to my Inner world to practice this set of exercises.”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer said, “Saying anything would be useless. Song Shuhang, transform into a spread and break up on the ground.”
What did he mean by ‘spread’?
Wait, could it be that innate talent magical technique?
Phoenix Slayer had once used a strange ability to turn Doudou into a pool of liquid by simply willing it. After that, Doudou ended up residing within a vase for several days before recovering to how he originally was.
“No, don’t use that technique on me.” After Song Shuhang said that, he tried to hide inside his Inner World using his will. Since I can’t afford to deal with them, can’t I just hide?
However, just as that thought appeared in his mind, he suddenly felt his body begin to change.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer said, “Hehehe, it’s too late. I activated the magical technique ever since I stopped letting you borrow my CPU.”
Song Shuhang said, “How could that be? I didn’t sense anything.”
It would have indeed been reasonable for there to have been fluctuations during the time when Young Master Phoenix Slayer had used his magical technique. However…
Young Master Phoenix Slayer calmly said, “It’s quite simple. It’s because when borrowing my CPU, after the one who borrowed it returns to their original body, there would be a delay of three seconds.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
F*ck, Senior Phoenix Slayer cheated me.
In the next moment, with a ‘plop’, Song Shuhang’s entire body turned into a liquid and cascaded down onto the ground.
Afterward, the puddle-state Song Shuhang gathered together and wobbled like a slime.
Loli Shi’s eyes widened. “Senior Brother Song turned into a puddle!”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “…” If you don’t seek death, then you won’t die. This seems to be something that Song Shuhang just can’t understand.
Senior White remarked, “I seem to remember that the success rate of Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer’s innate talent is only 30%. To have actually been turned into a puddle, Shuhang, your luck today is quite bad.”
The puddle-state Song Shuhang said, “How unfortunate-“
…Senior Thrice Reckless once said that people who seek death have rather decent luck. If so, how can I be so unfortunate?
Loli Shi gasped, “Eh? Senior Brother Song can still talk in this state?!”
She curiously skipped to Song Shuhang’s side, stretched out her finger, and tried to poke the liquefied Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang shouted, “Don’t poke me, my senses while in this state are very strange. Shi, if you poke me while I’m in this state, it will feel very weird.”
This was the case with children—their first reaction to seeing something strange was to poke it with a finger or a branch. This was a trait that even the well-behaved Loli Shi had.
Anyhow, Song Shuhang found that after his body turned into a puddle, his senses had become quite interesting.
Although he had no eyes, he could see. Although he had a nose, he could smell. Although he had no ears, he could hear. Last but not least, although he had no mouth, he could speak.
The senses that he had in this state were completely different from those when he was in human form.
Honestly speaking… this way of sensing things was rather fresh and fun.
As his body flowed like water, he felt a sensation that he could never have if he was in his human form. Moreover, as long as he relaxed and let his liquefied body lie completely flat on the ground, he felt a higher level of relaxation. It was 100 times more comfortable than when he lay on a waterbed in his human form.
Song Shuhang actually felt quite refreshed.
…F*ck, I’m actually feeling refreshed while in this state, am I ill?
The only inconvenience brought by the liquefied state was in the mobility aspect. However, since he had the invisible saber insect, even if he did turn into a puddle, he could still fly on a saber.
Hmm… if I go and practice various techniques while in this state, what effect will that have?
For example, if I were to try using the (Steel Hands Technique) now while I’m liquefied, how would the (Steel Hands Technique) appear?
Song Shuhang’s mind ‘opened up’.
While he was in thought, Su Clan’s Sixteen came to Song Shuhang’s side and collected his belongings first. “Previously, how long did Doudou stay in this state?”
Song Shuhang replied, “Several days.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “Should we put you in a bottle?”
Song Shuhang: “…”
At the side, Young Master Phoenix Slayer changed back into human form, and said, “Oh, you can rest assured, this time is different from Doudou’s, so you won’t be liquefied for several days.”
Song Shuhang said, “Thank you for showing mercy, Senior Phoenix Slayer.”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer said, “Mm-hm, because I’ve gained a better mastery over my fifth innate talent, your current state will probably last for at least one month.”
Heavens, isn’t that worse?
Song Shuhang said, “Senior Phoenix Slayer, a month is too long, we only fought for one day and one night. Can’t you adjust the time a bit?”
At this time, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue came up and smiled at Young Master Phoenix Slayer. “Beautifully done, Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer.”
After that, the Immortal Fairy handed him a bag of dried fish—this was the reward that Song Shuhang had promised to give to Young Master Phoenix Slayer. Although the Immortal Fairy Bie Xue was angry, all of this anger was now transferred onto Song Shuhang.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer accepted the dried fish.
For a moment, he was a little worried that Immortal Fairy Bie Xue would have poisoned the dried fish. However, after considering the character of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, he simply threw this thought to the bin.
With her pride in her identity as a top immortal chef, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue would never let her work be contaminated. She would definitely not do something like poisoning her own work.
That was unless she began making poisonous dishes.
After receiving the dried fish, Young Master Phoenix Slayer bowed to the fellow daoists, and said, “Well, Fellow Daoists, I still have urgent things to attend to, so I will be taking my leave first.”
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue smiled, and said, “Can’t Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer stay for a few days longer? Tonight, I’m preparing to make a table of immortal dishes. These are the dishes that I’ll be serving at the Immortal Feast, I’m testing them out tonight.”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer licked his lips, but ultimately shook his head. “Although I really do want to stay, I truly have something urgent to attend to.”
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue regretfully said, “Alright then, take care on the way, Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer.”
“See you.” Young Master Phoenix Slayer shook his head handsomely and brought out his flying sword.
Senior White, Shi, and Su Clan’s Sixteen waved goodbye to him.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer brought out his flying sword and quickly flew off from Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s immortal cave at great speeds.
I finally escaped. It’s truly wise of me to choose to protect my body, a dead fellow daoist does not die as a poor man, Young Master Phoenix Slayer thought to himself. Although the immortal dishes that Immortal Fairy Bie Xue were making tonight were indeed very tempting, how could he still have the guts to eat there?
If he stayed, there was a chance that the dinner Immortal Fairy Bie Xue prepared tonight would have an extra dish called ‘longhudou’.
As for little friend Song Shuhang who had turned into a puddle?
Haha… Little friend Song can go die 10,000 times for all I care.
All of those secret techniques were filled with embarrassing and shameful actions from beginning to end. Looking back at it now, Young Master Phoenix Slayer really got the urge to kill Song Shuhang.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer gnashed his teeth, and said, “That person surnamed Song should go die 10,000,000.”
At this time, Shi, Su Clan’s Sixteen, Senior White, and Immortal Fairy Bie Xue all squatted beside Song Shuhang.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said, “It looks a little sticky, it’s probably not fit to be eaten.”
Song Shuhang burst into tears.
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “Does Senior White have any way to undo the magical technique?” A month was rather long.
Senior White replied, “If you want me to undo Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer’s magical technique, I will first have to study the liquefied Shuhang and try and look for a way to deal with the technique method.”
“Wait,” Song Shuhang said. “Before studying me in my current form, let me try out a few things first.”
Sixteen curiously asked, “What are you planning on doing?”
“I’m going to try out some techniques.” said Song Shuhang as he began to use his (Steel Hands Technique).
Soon after, the liquefied Song Shuhang became dyed with a dark metallic color
As he had no hands, his entire body had been coated with it.
