Chapter 1222 I’m a man who carries a small world with him

As he reached towards the virtuous lamia, Song Shuhang was already preparing himself to hear the hot-blooded background music as he pulled out Scarlet Heaven Sword.

However, this time, there was surprisingly no background music that came playing out…

Scarlet Heaven Sword’s bold voice resounded. “Hurry and use me, Song Shuhang!”

The virtuous lamia slightly opened her mouth and spat out Scarlet Heaven Sword. After that, she picked up the sword and handed it to Song Shuhang

Song Shuhang asked, “Has the virtuous lamia changed?”

I wonder if I’m just seeing things. The current virtuous lamia has become a lot more reserved. She did not play any background music, nor did she ask me to draw the sword from within her.

All of these changes only began to set in after Ye Si’s body had been possessed by Cheng Lin.

It’s better for her to be reserved, at least she won’t just suddenly yell ‘aaah’, then fall to the ground and play dead. Now, she won’t suddenly place others in really embarrassing situations.

After receiving Scarlet Heaven Sword, Song Shuhang’s momentum rose.

Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, how many times can we use the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique today?”

Scarlet Heaven Sword excitedly said, “Your current body is in a liquefied state, so I can’t determine how many times you can withstand the pressure of the ‘Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique’. Try it out first so that we can gather some data.”

Song Shuhang asked, “Eighth Stage or Ninth Stage level?”

Scarlet Heaven Sword suggested, “Let’s try peak of the Eighth Stage first. The pressure of the Ninth Stage is too great. If your current body is unable to bear it, you will be in big trouble.”

“Alright.” Song Shuhang turned his wrist and condensed saber intent. He lightly flicked Scarlet Heaven Sword, and then got flames and saber qi to wrap around the entire body of the sword.

On the other side.

The One-Horned Venerable was delighted when he saw Song Shuhang stop and prepare to fight—if Profound Sage Tyrannical Song chose to not say anything and simply turned around and ran, their group might not be able to catch up with the other party.

However, since Profound Sage Tyrannical Song stopped, there was a better chance of them stalling the other party. The longer they stalled him, the better.

Now, they only had to wait for their ancestor to come over and take action. At that time, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song would surely be captured.

The One-Horned Venerable gravely said, “Be careful, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song is about to attack. This sword technique of his is terrifyingly powerful, and his saber intent is very scary. Do your best not to get hurt by the saber qi flames.”

But as soon as he finished saying that, he felt that something was off. Sword technique? Saber intent?

Profound Sage Tyrannical Song is holding a sword, but he’s also using saber intent. Is he using a sword for a saber move?

While he was speaking, Song Shuhang had already raised his sword.

(Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique), slash!

“Boom-” The blazing flames burst out from

Scarlet Heaven Sword’. These flames carried with them the intent of burning the sky and boiling the seas. They were powerful enough to burn everything.

The flames spread and wrapped around Song Shuhang’s body.

The surrounding temperature rose sharply.

With Song Shuhang as the center, the ground cracked, the water vapor evaporated, and the vegetation wilted. It was as if the end was coming.

However, this was just the beginning.

As Song Shuhang slowly raised his sword, the flames burned even more fiercely, and the temperature in the surrounding space rose sharply.

…He needed some time to gather the power. After all, he was merely borrowing the (Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique) from ‘Scarlet Heaven Sword’, so it was impossible for it to slash out as his normal saber moves would.

On the opposing side, the lips of the One-Horned Venerable and the beast cultivators behind him became chapped, while their bodies felt as if they were being robbed of all water. Even the spiritual energy in their bodies felt like catching fire.

The realm of this saber intent and these flames did not seem like something at the level of an Eighth Stage Profound Sage; instead, it seemed like something at the level of a Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender.

The One-Horned Venerable and the group of Fifth and Sixth Stage Realm beast cultivators behind him prepared themselves.

A Sixth Stage True Monarch beast cultivator with a wolf tail gravely said, “Facing such a powerful saber technique, our large formation will not be able to hold. Venerable, we won’t be able to block this move.”

The One-Horned Venerable responded, “The first Sage in a thousand years really is quite extraordinary. You guys retreat first!”

The large formation that they had prepared would be of no use. That formation could only resist the attack of an ordinary Eighth Stage Profound Sage; it would prove to be of no use in the face of the flaming saber of the ‘first Sage in a thousand years’.

However, just as the One-Horned Venerable issued the retreat order, the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique already arrived before them.

The long time needed for the build-up of the big move did not mean that the speed of the strike would be slow.

The sword rose and descended.

The Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique’s saber flames turned into a sea of flames that blanketed the One-Horned Venerable and the beast cultivators behind him.

At this moment, the One-Horned Venerable and the beast cultivators could see nothing but flames.

“Aaaah-” The bodies of two Fifth Stage beast cultivators came into contact with the flames, and they screamed as they burned into ashes in mere moments. Even their souls were burned into nothing.

However, those two men were only the beginning. As the sea of fire gathered, another four Fifth Stage beast cultivators had set foot on the burning path of no return.

The One-Horned Venerable yelled, “Everyone stay close to me.”

In the blink of an eye, they had lost six Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors; such a loss would pain the heart of any sect.

The remaining Fifth and Sixth Stage Realm beast cultivators gathered around the One-Horned Venerable.

After that, the Venerable forcefully crushed a ring he had on him.

The fragments of the ring floated in the air and transformed into dark runes that then floated around them. These runes met the overwhelming flame that came bearing down on them.

As soon as the flame and the rune made contact, they both disappeared.

It was not that the flames were extinguished, but rather they were moved to another space.

This was a life-saving treasure refined by the ancestor of the One-Horned Venerable for him. It was extremely precious, and belonged to the type of consumable items.

The One-Horned Venerable felt as if his heart were being stabbed when he used it.

I shouldn’t have been in such a hurry to go head-on against him. As long as I’d secretly locked onto Profound Sage Tyrannical Song and waited for the ancestor to come out, the ancestor would have surely been able to catch him, the One-Horned Venerable thought with regret.

The losses they had just born were too heavy, so they had to at least gain something from this.

The One-Horned Venerable’s eyes focused – besides the formation for delaying Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, he had also arranged some follow-up measures.

Now, the preparations he had made in the dark had finally fallen into position.

The One-Horned Venerable secretly made a gesture with his right hand.


Back at Song Shuhang’s side, Song Shuhang’s body showed signs of softening.

Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Tsk, as I guessed, in your current state, you can’t handle the flames and the high temperature. I estimate that after two more uses of the Eighth Stage level ‘Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique’, your body will no longer be able to bear another one.”

Song Shuhang replied, “Well, there are always disadvantages that come with advantages, it’s always been difficult to find something perfect in the world. Anyway, how come our Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique just disappeared?”

Scarlet Heaven Sword replied, “The other party should have used a life-saving treasure that a Tribulation Transcender had refined for him. I sensed some spatial fluctuations, and after that, the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique had immediately been transferred. The Tribulation Transcender who refined this life-saving treasure should specialize in the spatial system.”

“Then let’s send out another strike to see if he has any more life-saving treasures.” Song Shuhang turned his wrist once again.

A blazing flame once again burst out from Scarlet Heaven Sword—if the other party was filled with Tribulation Transcender life-saving treasures, he would know it.

At this moment… In the distance, dozens of sharp objects came flying out from the air and shot towards Song Shuhang’s head.

Scarlet Heaven Sword reminded, “Be careful.”

The virtuous lamia leapt forward and rose up from the whale. She brought out a blood bone and unceasingly swung it at the sharp things.

Scarlet Heaven Sword again said, “There’s more coming, pay attention.”

Another wave of over 10 sharp objects shot towards Song Shuhang.

The virtuous lamia hurried back.

However, she was one step behind. The second batch of sharp objects was much faster than the first one. She was not able to reach Song Shuhang in time, and so the sharp objects reached Song Shuhang first.

The pure explosive speed of these things had already reached the Sixth Stage level. Song Shuhang was only a Fourth Stage cultivator. Even if Scarlet Heaven Sword reminded him, he wouldn’t be able to avoid them purely with his reaction speed.

At the critical moment, Song Shuhang transferred himself over into his Inner World.

Song Shuhang said, “I’m a man who carries a small world with him. How could your random attacks hit me?”

Scarlet Heaven Sword remarked, “Look at what’s sticking out of your stomach first.”

When Song Shuhang looked down, he found that a sharp metal bar had pierced his stomach. It was inserted in his stomach, sneering at him.

However, as Song Shuhang’s body was currently in a liquefied state, this metal bar that had pierced him did not hurt him, nor did it even itch.

Song Shuhang wondered, “When did I get pierced?”

Scarlet Heaven Sword answered, “Right before you transferred over, the metal bar suddenly accelerated and pierced your abdomen. It should be the effect of a refined spear-throwing technique. Your reaction speed was too slow.”

Song Shuhang said, “Heavens.”

He was lucky that his body was currently in a liquefied state; otherwise, it could have been a tragedy.

He really had to go back and give Senior Phoenix Slayer a big gift.

Even with the Inner World as my fallback, I must still remain absolutely vigilant, Song Shuhang thought to himself. It wasn’t every day that he could be so lucky like today; it just so happened that his body was liquefied at this time.

Outside the Inner World.

When Song Shuhang entered the Inner World, a burning figure was left where he originally was. It was an illusion left behind by the flames that had formed when Song Shuhang was preparing to use the ‘Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique’ for the second time. These flames were not going to disperse for a little while.

From the One-Horned Venerable and the others’ perspective, the 11 sharp objects of the second wave all hit and turned ‘Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’ into a hedgehog.

The One-Horned Venerable’s face showed great surprise.

All of them hit!

He thought that the preparations he had arranged would only score one or two hits on the other party at most, but he did not expect for all 11 to hit. Even more incredible was that the defense of Profound Sage Tyrannical Song was so fragile and was easily penetrated!

If it weren’t for the previous flaming saber that had almost caused all of them to die, he would have wondered if Profound Sage Tyrannical Song was a fake.

It seems that this Profound Sage Tyrannical Song knows nothing about our Beast Realm’s specialty, the One-Horned Venerable thought.

Those sharp objects were special products of the Beast Realm, called ‘Myriad Beasts Martial Steel’ — it was the hardest metal known in the Beast Realm.

It was so hard and firm that existences below the Ninth Stage would not be able to refine it. Moreover, cultivators at and above the Ninth Stage would rarely use it, because it was not conductive to any kind of energy–whether it be true qi, spiritual power, or profound energy

– it would not have any effect. Therefore, most Ninth Stage beast cultivators only used it to make small parts of magical treasures.

Even so, there were many beast cultivators who took a liking to it. Although it couldn’t be refined, most of this kind of beast steel existed in the shape of spikes when it was mined.

As such, when the spikes were shot out with brute force, the incomparably tough ‘Myriad Beasts Martial Steel’ still had a terrifyingly lethal force.
