In addition, as the ‘Myriad Beasts Martial Steel’ repelled all forms of ‘True Qi, Spiritual Power, and Profound Energy’, it was inherently equipped with certain defense-breaking properties.
As long as it was thrown out with a strong force, it could work as a defense-breaking magical technique. For beast cultivators who had a lot of brute force, this thing was simply perfect.
Nevertheless, the One-Horned Venerable did not expect them to actually be able to seriously hurt Profound Sage Tyrannical Song.
That first wave of attacks that used the ‘Myriad Beasts Martial Steel’ was only meant to test the strength of his defense. He had thought that even if only one or two hit the other party and weaken their defense, it would have already been a great success.
He had not thought that the probing wave would actually turn Profound Sage Tyrannical Song into a hedgehog.
At this time, the wolf-tailed Sixth Stage beast cultivator shouted, “No, Venerable, it’s an afterimage. Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s real body isn’t there.”
The One-Horned Venerable was shocked.
He took a closer look and found that it really did turn out to be an afterimage.
The first Sage in a thousand years truly lived up to his title.
The One-Horned Venerable asked, “Where is he?”
The wolf-tailed beast cultivator replied, “I don’t know, he seems to have disappeared into thin air. However, he’s definitely still nearby since his light of his virtue of virtue is still here.”
Someone suggested, “Should we extinguish his light of virtue first?”
The One-Horned Venerable: “Dumbass, even if his light of virtue were to be broken down into fine pieces, as long as he isn’t dead, it would just recover after a short while. We have to find Profound Sage Tyrannical Song and stop him from running away.”
He did not want to waste his energy on a light of virtue!
— But sometimes, the more you wanted to avoid something, the harder it was to avoid it.
In the sky, the virtuous lamia looked at the One-Horned Venerable with her head tilted.
For a moment, she was deep in thought. Afterward, a light shone through her eyes-it was greed.
She stretched out her hand and slapped the fat whale.
The fat whale was forced to open its mouth and spit out the ‘white-haired man’.
The unfortunate white-haired man was spat out to the side like garbage. He had been abandoned as the virtuous lamia had already found a better replacement.
The virtuous lamia stared intently at the One-Horned Venerable. The fat whale flapped its small wings and charged forward with the virtuous lamia on its back.
See, conquer, and finally, collect the loot. This was what was on the mind of the lamia at this moment.
“She’s coming toward us.”
“Is Profound Sage Tyrannical Song remotely controlling her?”
“Using his undying light of virtue to attack while hiding in the dark, how despicable.”
The One-Horned Venerable grit his teeth, and said, “Destroy her.”
Inside the Inner World.
Song Shuhang could sense the changes in the outside world through the virtuous lamia.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Fairy @#%x seems to have found a new toy.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “What do we do next? Should we go out and use another saber strike? Your body can still bear the pressure of another slash.”
Song Shuhang pondered for a moment, and asked, “Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, how many times can you slash out without me?”
“Do you want me to go out and cut those people down alone?” Scarlet Heaven Sword vigorously shook its body. “If nobody cooperates with me, it will take a long time for me to recover. It isn’t worth it.”
Song Shuhang said, “Then… let’s find a helper.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “Who?”
“Senior Turtle.” Song Shuhang said, “Senior Turtle is also a Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender. Although his realm has been sealed by the Great Emperor, he should still have no problem defeating a Seventh Stage Venerable.”
Song Shuhang willed, and moved right next to Senior Turtle who was in the Winter Palace.
The big turtle was currently lying down.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Turtle, would you like to go out and take part in a special event?”
The sea turtle replied, “Nope, but tell me what you need.”
Song Shuhang said, “Actually, there are people outside who want to cut me down. Senior Turtle, don’t you want to go out and have a look at them? If you don’t find them pleasing to your eyes, you can just beat them up.”
The corner of the sea turtle’s mouth twitched as it looked at Song Shuhang. “Your current attitude reminds me of the Great Emperor’s friend, Slow-Witted Song. That guy would do the same thing you’re doing right now. Every time he was having trouble facing others, he would come to the Great Emperor to ask for help.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
“You also know that my strength is sealed right now. However, if you want to beat those people up, that’s still possible. I can just let you borrow a treasure of mine. With that treasure with you, even a Seventh Stage Venerable would find it very difficult to hurt you.” The sea turtle had a slight smile on its face despite it being hard for it to squeeze out such a smile.
Song Shuhang: “What treasure?”
“A huge treasure of the defensive system.” After saying that, the sea turtle took out a huge turtle shell from its own spatial magical treasure.
The sea turtle suggested to Shuhang, “This is the turtle shell I used when I was young. I stopped using it after I reached the Ninth Stage. Unfortunately, you don’t have the blood of our turtle clan; otherwise, you could fully activate this turtle shell and you could have a defense at the Eighth Stage level.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
When Senior Turtle said ‘defensive magical treasure’, he already got a bad hunch. Sure enough, the magical treasure that the other party brought out was really a turtle shell.
“I thank you for your kindness,” Song Shuhang said. “But you should save this turtle shell for the future generations. Well then, I still have something to do, I’ll be going now.”
The sea turtle shouted, “Wait, are you looking down on my turtle shell? I’m telling you, its defensive properties are nothing to scoff at. As long as you carry it on your back, you would never have to worry about attacks piercing through to your back.”
Song Shuhang waved his hands vigorously, and said, “I really do thank you for your kindness, but I am seriously busy. So let’s talk again some other time.”
“You think I can’t just send it over to you? Here, it’s yours now, catch.” The sea turtle threw the turtle shell over towards Song Shuhang
The turtle shell actively mounted itself on Song Shuhang’s back, and it was a perfect fit.
Song Shuhang only felt his back sink a bit, as the object that was as heavy as a small mountain nearly pressed him down onto the ground.
“See? Not only does it play a defensive role, but it even tempers your body with the weight that it forces you to carry, it’s an amazing 2-in-1 product.” The sea turtle promoted it as best as it could.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Song Shuhang turned to look at the sea turtle, and asked, “Senior Turtle, how do I get this thing off?”
“Good question. I’m very proud of the removal feature of this turtle shell. It will automatically fall off 24 hours after it is installed. It’s very convenient,” the sea turtle continued to promote the turtle shell.
“I have to wear it for a whole 24 hours?” Song Shuhang’s eyes widened.
He was not interested in being Master Roshi, and since he could not take it off for the next 24 hours, he was considering whether or not he should stay inside his Inner World for a day before going out again.
Scarlet Heaven Sword suggested, “Actually, you can change your body into a turtle to fit into this turtle shell.” Now that Song Shuhang was still in a liquefied state, he could change into whatever form he wanted.
Song Shuhang said, “I’ll just practice at home for one day.”
The sea turtle said, “Although you can’t remove it for the next 24 hours, you can still move it to any part of your body. For example, you can move it to your arm and make it into a shield. You can also move it under your feet and fly around with it. You can even mount it on the top of your head to block the wind and the rain. Doing so isn’t difficult at all, you can move to whichever part of your body you want it to be moved to with just your will.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
He then tried to send his thoughts to the turtle shell, and the turtle shell actually whizzed to his feet.
“It seems that you’ve already mastered the basics of its usage. You and my turtle shell truly are a good fit,” the sea turtle then boasted. “Finally, I want to seriously recommend one of its most powerful functions to you. The function is called automatic defense mode. As long as this mode is activated while you’re carrying it on your body, the turtle shell will actively defend against any sudden attacks. I believe that you will especially take a liking to this feature.”
Outside the Inner World.
The virtuous lamia held a slipper in her left hand while holding a blood bone in the right one as she wreaked havoc in the middle of the One-Horned Venerable’s troops.
However, her goal was only the One-Horned Venerable.
She had already tried to swallow him several times. Unfortunately, these attempts had all been in vain, and even the body of the fat whale was destroyed several times.
At this point, the virtuous lamia had already shrunk by half. Both she and the fat whale have already ‘died several times.
“Damn, isn’t the materialization of a light of virtue supposed to disappear once it’s burst into bits? What’s up with this one? It can actually gather itself together even after being broken down into fine pieces,” the One-Horned Venerable questioned if he had encountered a fake light of virtue.
Inside the Inner World.
Song Shuhang was watching the changes happening in the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’ through the virtuous lamia.
When the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion had just been transferred, its overall form had become rather illusory as signs of crumbling appeared on its buildings.
At this time, however, the entire Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion seems to have already consolidated itself.
It should be the Beast Realm’s Tribulation Transcender who had made the move to stabilize the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion.
Song Shuhang thought, [Pavilion Master Chu still hasn’t appeared. In this case, I should probably leave this place first.]
If this were to drag on for any longer and the Tribulation Transcender from the Beast Realm were to finish dealing with the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, leaving would no longer be easy.
Although his Inner World would not be detected by a Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender, he would still come out at the place where he had entered the Inner World from. When the other side’s Tribulation Transcender freed itself, it could simply stand guard by the door of Song Shuhang’s ‘home’. At that time, it would become extremely troublesome to leave.
As his thoughts arrived here, Song Shuhang gave the ‘virtuous lamia’ instructions to evacuate.
The virtuous lamia stiffened, and reluctantly looked at One-Horned Venerable.
After that, she controlled the fat whale and rushed towards where the white-haired man fell.
With the treatment he got from his companions, the white-haired man was finally able to recover and he slowly opened his eyes. However, at this moment, the whale-riding virtuous lamia was charging towards his location.
The Fifth Stage beast cultivator in charge of healing him was instantly knocked flying.
The fat whale then opened its mouth and inhaled violently.
“Ahhh-” The white-haired man screamed as his body was sucked into the belly of the fat whale once again.
Every time I open my eyes, I keep on seeing the fat whale’s wide-open mouth.
When is this nightmare going to end?!
Then, the virtuous lamia flew towards the Inner World’s ‘exit’.
In the next moment, Song Shuhang flashed out from his Inner World, and the virtuous lamia wrapped herself around him.
Song Shuhang stored the ‘spikes’ on the ground into his spatial magical treasure.
“Profound Sage Tyrannical Song.” The One-Horned Venerable gnashed his teeth.
At this time, Song Shuhang was flying on a shell and was retreating quickly. The turtle shell’s flying speed was surprisingly not any slower than that of the invisible saber insect.
“Your sharp metal bars are quite good.” Song Shuhang pulled out the metal bar from his abdomen.
He had forgotten to pull it out before as it did not hurt him any bit.
Song Shuhang said with a serious face, “However, I am a slime. This thing will not be able to kill me.” After that, he waved his hand, and said, “Goodbye.”
A Slime? Profound Sage Tyrannical Song wasn’t a human…?
Just as Song Shuhang was preparing to leave, a loud sound came from the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion.
Pavilion Master Chu was treading on the air as two Tribulation Transcender-level beast cultivators were right by her side and repeatedly clashing with her.
