Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “After going in a big circle, you still end up going to this branch as a guest. There’s only one word to describe you-hypocrite.”
Song Shuhang looked at the sky, not knowing how to retort.
A few minutes later, the man in the black suit took Song Shuhang back to the village entrance of the Black Horse Department of the ‘All the Humans of the World Should Unite and Become a Family’ organization.
The man in the black suit stood at the entrance of the branch village, and yelled, “I’ve got good news to tell everyone, this person beside me—”
The village gave Song Shuhang a warm welcome. “Our Black Horse Branch welcomes the great master’s guidance.”
The welcome was like a wave that came and went; it was clear that it had been practiced. The welcome that the village gave him resounded wave after wave, and though not many people shouted, it still gave off a very imposing feeling.
The face of the man in black suits turned black, and he shouted, “You guys, can’t you let me finish what I’m saying first?”
The village suddenly became quiet.
The big black suit yelled, “Cough, in fact, the turtle great master still has yet to arrive. However, we were fortunate enough to be able to welcome someone of even greater renown. He is the first Sage in a thousand years, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song! That’s right, it’s the person who has shown his divinity and gave a Profound Sage Speech a few days ago, Senior Tyrannical Song. Let’s all welcome Profound Sage Tyrannical Song to the Black Horse Branch of the ‘All the Humans of the World Should Unite and Become a Family’ organization!”
Silence pervaded the village; the villagers seemed not to have been able to comprehend and react to the words of the man in black.
However, after two breaths’ time, reverberating cheers came from the village.
The first Sage in a thousand years had actually paid a visit to their small branch village.
This was enough for them to boast about for years to come.
Immediately afterward, a red carpet unfurled from the village entrance all the way to Song Shuhang’s feet once again.
Song Shuhang did not know whether to cry or laugh.
Will the same welcome be done again?
Do the people of this Black Horse Branch have some kind of OCD?
However, after thinking that, he recalled the two rows of ladies who had welcomed him a while back. He could not deny that they were truly beautiful.
They had the same height, the same dress, the same figure, and then they even welcomed him with such a soft tone.
For the sake of those beautiful ladies, I won’t mind having to go through this welcoming ceremony again, Song Shuhang thought.
However, reality was often unpredictable…Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
The two rows of ladies from before did not show up; instead, over a dozen tender little girls bearing flowers skipped out of the branch while laughing.
They were not of the same height as the previous ladies. The two rows of little girls were rather roughly arranged according to their heights on both sides.
“Our Black Horse Branch welcomes Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s guidance!” The little girls’ voices were also inconsistent with one another, with some speaking faster than the others, while some had higher pitch than the others. Nonetheless, it was a cute and lively scene.
The atmosphere of this welcome was much better than before.
Song Shuhang: “…”
What happened to the two rows of ladies from before? Why have they shrunk, and why there’s so many of them?
The man in the black suit, who was also the head of the Black Horse Branch, proudly asked, “How is it? Senior Tyrannical Song, are you satisfied with this welcoming lineup?”
Song Shuhang: Black_man_question_mark.jpg
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “He said that, in order to show their sincerity, he had the lineup for the welcoming party changed up a bit. He’s also asking you how you liked it.”
Song Shuhang could only let out a dry smile; the other party was so sincere, so what else could he do?
With a smile on his face, he nodded slightly to the head of the Black Horse Branch.
Scarlet Heaven Sword wrote ‘Profound Sage Tyrannical Song expressed his satisfaction’ in flaming text.
The corners of the mouth of the main in the suit rose-first impressions were always very important, so the first impression that they showed Profound Sage Tyrannical Song had to exceptional.
Under the lead of the man in the black suit, Song Shuhang entered the village of the Black Horse Branch along the red carpet.
Only after entering the village did he find out that there was an entire world inside it.
Within the village was a large grassland that was filled with many spirit beast horses. Each of the members of the branch appeared to reside in yurt-like buildings of their own.
The dozen little girls immediately followed behind Song Shuhang, their dark eyes intently staring at Song Shuhang and the beautiful virtuous lamia that was behind him.
It was the first Sage in a thousand years, an existence at the Eighth Stage Realm. In addition, there was also the light of virtue behind him, which truly was eye-catching. For small branches like the Black Horse Branch, this was a scene that they would only be able to witness once in a century.
One of the relatively bolder girls approached Song Shuhang and presented the flowers in her hands.
“Thank you.” Song Shuhang took the flowers.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Hehe, little friend Shuhang, this girl’s flowers aren’t something that you can just accept. You’re now in the Beast Realm, their customs and habits here are different from those of Earth… Perhaps their actions of offering you the flowers mean a show of affection?”
Song Shuhang said, “F*ck, that can’t be the case. She’s just a little girl.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “This is the Beast Realm, it’s a world of practitioners. She might look like a little girl, but who knows if she’s actually in her twenties?”
Song Shuhang: “…”
He looked at the little girl nervously.
Fortunately, at least in the Black Horse Branch, giving flowers did not correlate to a marriage proposal. The courageous little girl gave flowers to Song Shuhang, and then happily jumped back to her companions.
Soon after, the group of little girls scrambled to offer Song Shuhang their flowers.
The head of the Black Horse Branch led Song Shuhang all the way back to his house. He had extra rooms that were specially meant for entertaining guests.
On the way there, they had passed a huge rectangular stone building.
This rectangular building was particularly conspicuous in the Black Horse Branch as the village was mostly composed of grassland and yurt-style houses.
Other than that, Song Shuhang got a familiar feeling from it.
Song Shuhang asked, “What’s that place over there?”
Just as Scarlet Heaven Sword was about to translate his words…
“That’s a place designated as resting place for spirit beasts, and it’s also where we collect spirit beast crystals,” the bold little girl from before suddenly replied in standard Mandarin.
“Eh?” Song Shuhang turned his head curiously and looked at the little girl.
“I’ve been very fond of various languages ever since I was a child. As such, I can speak a great variety of languages.” The bold girl grinned, causing her eyes to narrow into crescent moons.
“So… you’ve always been able to understand me?” The corners of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched.
The little girl grinned, and said, “Mm-hm, Senior Tyrannical Song, don’t worry, our action of offering flowers does not correlate to a marriage proposal.”
Song Shuhang said, “Heavens.”
The little girl curiously asked, “Heavens? What does that mean?”
Song Shuhang asked, “It’s just a sort of pet phrase. What’s your name?”
The little girl replied, “If my name were to be translated into Senior Tyrannical Song’s language, it should mean ‘Kindness’.”.
Song Shuhang asked, “Your name is a single word?”
The little girl replied seriously, “It isn’t a word in the language of the Beast Realm. However, it’s translation in your language would be ‘kind’ or ‘virtuous’, it carries the same meaning as ‘kindness’.”
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “Kindness, good name.” After saying that, he turned to look at the huge stone building once again.
A place where spirit beasts rest and a place where spirit beast crystals are collected…
However, aside from the people of the Divine Beast Department, weren’t spirit beast crystals useless in the eyes of other practitioners? The spiritual power in the crystals could not be absorbed by ordinary practitioners, so they could only be used as ornaments.
“What’s the point of collecting the spirit beast crystals?” Song Shuhang asked—could those of the Beast Realm have found a way to use spirit beast crystals?
Kindness shook her head, and replied, “I don’t know, it has been our tradition to collect spirit beast crystals ever since the Black Horse Branch had been established. If horse spirit beast were to rest there and condense a spirit beast crystal, we would simply collect it.”
Horses are also one of the beasts in the ‘Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique’, and these guys have even been storing spirit beast crystals in accordance with some so-called traditions. It really seems to be related to the ‘Divine Beast Department’.
However, Slow-Witted Song had already left behind the hidden inheritance of the Divine Beast Department in the ‘All the Monsters of the World Should Unite and Become a Family’ organization, so why would he have a similar organization formed in the Beast Realm?
For double assurance?
Slow-Witted Song’s way of thinking was simply too unpredictable.
The man in the black suit brought Song Shuhang to an independent yurt and requested him to rest there.
Due to ‘Kindness’ being able to communicate with Song Shuhang, she had also stayed behind to act as a translator for the two parties.
Kindness explained to Song Shuhang, “The head said that he will go and prepare dinner for Senior Tyrannical Song now. He hopes that senior will like the specialties of our Black Horse Branch.”
Song Shuhang said, “Thank you, branch head.”
Kindness replaced Scarlet Heaven Sword as a translator.
As a result, Scarlet Heaven Sword lost his job.
The man in the black suit left, leaving Kindness and two other branch members to accompany Song Shuhang. He himself went out to prepare dinner, and at the same time, he was also preparing on using the time to plan the next event.
Taking advantage of the time Profound Sage Tyrannical Song was staying in the Black Horse Branch, he had to prepare a few lively activities. It was best to get Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s favor and get him to guide a few of the youngsters in the branch.
Song Shuhang asked Kindness for some information about the ‘All the Humans of the World Should Unite and Become a Family’ organization. However, in order to avoid inciting suspicion, he only asked about some basic information.
At the same time, through the eye of the virtuous lamia that had been left at the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, he continued to pay attention to the battle between Pavilion Master Chu and the four Tribulation Transcenders.
The battle continued. From time to time, there were explosions of light. One of the scenes he had got to see was a passing image of Pavilion Master Chu; she currently appeared to be alright, without any serious injuries.
While Song Shuhang was watching the ‘Battle of Tribulation Transcenders’, his Sage Seal proactively emerged and strengthened him to prevent his mental energy from being impacted by the battle.
As soon as the Sage Seal emerged, Kindness and the two other members of the Black Horse Branch who had been left behind in the yurt felt a huge pressure.
It was especially so for ‘Kindness’, who was the nearest to Song Shuhang. After the Sage Seal emerged, it immediately became harder for her to breathe.
She involuntarily circulated her body tempering technique. She was a practitioner at the First Stage Third ‘Nose’ Aperture Realm, and she was still some ways from the Fourth ‘Ear’ Aperture Realm.
At this time, the pressure exuded by the Sage Seal enveloped her.
She felt herself having a difficult time breathing, and the power of qi and blood within her heart, eye, and nose apertures became difficult to control, causing her to be unable to circulate it as she wanted.
Just when the pressure almost suffocated her, a gentle light exuded from Song Shuhang.
And so, pure ‘power of virtue’ fell on Kindness’ body.
At the same time, Song Shuhang opened his eyes and curiously looked at the little girl.
Her body tempering technique seemed to have traces of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique’.
