What happened just now? Did I just get beaten up and even had my face smashed into a bloody mess by a little boy at the Fourth Stage?
Impossible! I have already condensed 10 ancient holy apes. I should be among the strongest in the Fifth Stage Realm, how could I have been beaten by someone at the Fourth Stage?!
The white-haired man could not believe what had just happened. His eyes widened as he stared in confusion at Song Shuhang.
In the next moment, a strange feeling welled up in his heart as he suddenly found out the name of the ‘Fourth Stage’ guy that was right in front of him.
“P… Profound Sage… Tyrannical Song!” The white-haired man’s mind suddenly exploded.
It wasn’t a small cultivator at the Fourth Stage, but rather Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, an Eighth Stage monster.
But wasn’t it too mean to conceal one’s strength like that? Where was the honesty between people?
After finding out that the other party was a Profound Sage, the white-haired man did not dare to block him.
Anyway, even if he did want to block the other party, he would be powerless to do so. Moreover, after getting hit by the face-slapping slipper, a winged fat whale rolled on top of him, nearly crushing him to death.
Song Shuhang did not waste any time with the white-haired man, and continued to fly to the top floor of the Celestial Pavilion.
However, the virtuous lamia wasn’t planning to stop. She controlled the winged fat whale, and after rolling over the white-haired man, it opened its mouth, ready to swallow him down.
“No, stop!” the white-haired man screamed in horror.
The man wanted to cast a secret technique to escape. However, the mouth of the fat whale opened, and a great suction force covered his body, causing him to be swallowed into the fat whale’s belly.
Scarlet Heaven Sword: “…”
Was Fairy @#%x addicted to swallowing things? Could it be that a sword-swallowing performance was no longer enough for her, which led her to swallow people?
The fat whale swallowed the white-haired man and returned to Fairy @#%x. The virtuous lamia sped up and returned to Song Shuhang’s side.
Soon after, Song Shuhang reached the top floor of the Celestial Pavilion.
Ye Si’s voice echoed. (This is the place where Pavilion Master Chu usually rests, but I can’t seem to sense her aura right now.]
Song Shuhang said, “I’ll go inside and have a look.”
The virtuous lamia took the initiative to reach forward and push open the door. She was light of virtue, and as long as Song Shuhang did not die, even if she was blown into pieces, she could just return to her previous state.
When the virtuous lamia pushed open the door, a slimy black thing came flying at her. The black slime stretched itself into a net in an attempt to capture the lamia.
The virtuous lamia clasped her hands together, and softly said, “Virtuous… Giant Sun!”
The dazzling light of virtue transformed into a small golden sun and rolled over the black slime.
“Aaaah-” the black slime screamed in pain.
It just so happened that its power was restrained by the light of virtue, and after being exposed to the ‘Virtuous Giant Sun’, it was as if it were snow under a hot sun-it melted directly.
Song Shuhang looked around the room. There was nobody else inside Pavilion Master Chu’s room.
Song Shuhang said, “I wonder where these guys came from… By the way, don’t kill the black slime, let’s keep it to get information.”
However, just as he said that, with a puff, the black slime completely melted, leaving a puddle of ink on the floor from which no life force could be sensed.
Had it died?
But hadn’t it been a bit too easy to kill?
The virtuous lamia took back her (Virtuous Giant Sun), she then tilted her head and looked at Song Shuhang.
It was as if she was telling him that she could not be blamed for what had just happened.
Song Shuhang sighed, and said, “Forget it. If it died, then it died. Is that white-haired guy from before still alive? As long as that man is still alive, we might be able to get some useful information out of him.”
The virtuous lamia looked at the fat whale under her feet… The white-haired man was in the whale’s belly.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “That guy should be still alive, but I don’t know how long he’ll be able to stay alive in there.”
Song Shuhang said, “Spit him out first. We have to get something out of him before he dies.”
The virtuous lamia showed a pained expression.
The fat whale opened its mouth and spat out the man.
The white-haired man slightly opened his eyes.
After that, he immediately saw that his companion had turned into a pool of ink, and his heart suddenly froze.
He then looked around him.
The virtuous lamia and the winged fat whale were staring at him from both sides, while Profound Sage Tyrannical Song was standing directly in front of him.
His heart chilled.
Then, Song Shuhang solemnly asked, “Who are you? And why did you appear in the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion? Are the changes happening to the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion related to you guys?”
“Hehehe.” The white-haired man let out a self-mocking laugh. “It seems that you don’t know anything, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song… Hehe, don’t bother asking me, I won’t talk.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Even if I were to beat you to death?”
The white-haired man decisively said, “Even if you were to beat me to death.”
Song Shuhang replied, “Good.”
The white-haired man: “…” What do you mean by ‘good’?
Song Shuhang said, “Make his wish come true.”
The virtuous lamia brought out her terrifying slipper and slapped the man.
“Aaaah-” At the next moment, the man’s screams rang throughout the room.
The virtuous lamia’s control over her strength was very good this time. The strength of that slap would only make the man feel extreme pain, but it would not put him anywhere near death.
The man rolled around on the ground.
However, he remained tight-lipped and ended up getting beaten for a long time. Apart from repeatedly screaming, he let nothing else slip out of his mouth.
The white-haired man grit his teeth, and said, “Even if I die, I will not talk.”
Song Shuhang pinched his chin.
Why does it feel like I’m the villain, while this white-haired man is some protagonist who’s ready to become a martyr…?
At this moment, Scarlet Heaven Sword suddenly said, “Shuhang, behind you.”
Song Shuhang quickly turned his head and saw the black slime smash through the window and fly away.
It was the slime from before. That guy had unexpectedly not died yet.
“Where do you think you’re going?” Song Shuhang brought out the invisible saber insect and slashed at the black slime.
The invisible saber insect sliced the black slime and blasted it apart.
However, the black slime split into hundreds of small black versions of itself and fled in all directions.
Still not dead…?
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Don’t you feel that this guy’s state is quite similar to your current state? Even if its body is cut into thousands of pieces, it won’t die.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
“Aaaah!” The white-haired man, who had been screaming for a long time, passed out.
The virtuous lamia stopped slapping him.
Song Shuhang asked, “It’s not easy to extract information with torture. Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, do you have any means to read his memory?”
Scarlet Heaven Sword replied, “I’m a divine sword, why would I learn mind-reading techniques? Moreover, the memories of guys like this one are usually sealed. It isn’t easy to browse through these kinds of people’s memories.”
Song Shuhang sank his consciousness into his Inner World.
Then, he asked, “Senior Turtle, do you happen to have a strong technique for reading memories?”
The sea turtle responded, “I only know 100 training techniques, do you want to learn them?”
Song Shuhang: “…”
It would be nice if I could just search on the Internet.
Shuhang let out a soft sigh.
[Hey~ Song Shuhang, are you there?] Then, a voice suddenly echoed in his mind.
This time, it was not Ye Si’s voice. It was Senior White Two’s.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior White?”
Senior White Two said, [Oh, I’ve finally locked onto your position. What troublesome place have you run into this time? It took me quite a while to find you.)
Song Shuhang said, […How do I say this, I’m in a special secret realm. Why were you looking for me?)
Senior White Two asked, (I heard that you got a clue about the complete version of the (Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique). Have you already started collecting those treasures that can be assembled?]
Heavens, Senior White Two is really well-informed.
Song Shuhang replied, [Not yet. I’ve only found the first clue. Now, I have to crack the code and translate it to get the complete cultivation technique.]
Senior White Two said, [Not bad, you got this. Once you get the complete version, let me have a look. I’ll be sure to reward you greatly! That’s all I wanted to say, let’s talk again at some later time.)
Senior White Two was very interested in that treasure and desired to collect it.
(Senior White, wait!] Song Shuhang quickly said. [Do you have a technique to forcefully read someone’s memories?]
Senior White Two said, [Oh, you finally noticed that some of your memories have been sealed? It isn’t that difficult to deal with your sealed memories, Hm… it’s worth five jokes. Alright, you can start whenever you’re ready.)
Song Shuhang: “…”
Song Shuhang explained, (Cough, in fact, what I wanted was to read a white-haired man’s memories. I need to get some information out of him.]
Senior White Two continued, [Fishing for information? Something like that can be done with simple hypnosis. Hmm… I can do it for you for two jokes. You can start whenever you’re ready.)
Song Shuhang asked (Can I owe you first?]
Senior White Two replied, [It’s a small business, I don’t accept credit.)
Song Shuhang continued, (How about I used some food instead? I have some golden bayberries and their taste is rather good.]
Senior White Two asked, (The ones condensed from light of virtue?]
(Eh? Senior White, you saw the scene of the other Senior White’s tribulation?] Song Shuhang asked in return.
Wasn’t Senior White Two a member of the Netherworld Realm? How could he see the main world’s divinity show?
Senior White Two said, (If it’s that kind of golden bayberry, 100 of them would be worth two jokes.)
Song Shuhang: “…”
Those were going to be the two most expensive jokes ever.
However, the transaction was successful.
Song Shuhang straightforwardly said, [Fine. I have a lot of them here, and it’s not a problem to give them to you.]
The other Senior White had too many of these bayberries anyway. As long as he was in a good mood, he’d casually give everyone a box or two.
Senior White Two said, (The transaction is complete. Now, stand still and don’t move. I’m going to cast the hypnosis technique.]
He did not directly show himself.
Instead, he used Song Shuhang’s coordinates and made one of his fingers cross through an unbelievably long distance and descend on the white-haired man.
After that, the man opened his eyes, seemingly in a daze.
Without Song Shuhang even having to ask anything, the man began to confess everything he knew.
He came from the Beast Realm, one of the realms in the vast universe, and was a powerful beast cultivator.
His main cultivation technique was the famous (Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique) of the Beast Realm, which allowed one to condense the projections of the ancient holy apes on the top of one’s head. Each holy ape projection represented a portion of the giant ape’s divine power.
Then, he provided a detailed description of the (Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique).
