1228 Golden Trigram, Silver Trigram, neither of them are as great as I, Ivory Trigram
During that last statement, the soft tone of the man wearing the mink fur coat caused Song Shuhang’s hair to stand on end.
Could this guy have a crush on Cheng Lin?
In addition, when the young man mentioned ‘Cheng Lin’s aura’, could he have mistaken Ye Si’s aura for Cheng Lin’s? Or could he have been talking about the aura which Cheng Lin had left on Ye Si after she had possessed her body?
“Leave. Perhaps… this is the last time we’ll see each other.” The young man stood up, lifted his wine jar, and gradually went away.
After taking a few steps, the young man suddenly disappeared. It wasn’t spatial teleportation, but rather him directly leaving the dream.
Song Shuhang thought of something.
Heavens, this guy pulled me into this ‘dream’, and then simply patted himself on the shoulder and walked away.
How am I supposed to get out of this dream? Song Shuhang wanted to cry but had no tears.
Do I just sit here and wait for this dream to finish?
He looked around and saw nothing but an endless prairie with only that lonely tree that was right beside him. The space within this dream seemed to have no end.
What should I do?
This dream isn’t like a game, there isn’t an option I can just click to ‘log out’.
“Yo~ Cheng Lin.” At this time, another voice suddenly sounded from behind him.
Song Shuhang abruptly turned around, and saw a daoist standing behind him and smiling at him.
Song Shuhang curiously asked, “You are?”
The daoist said, “Don’t tell me that you accidentally lost your memory and ended up forgetting about me? Such an excuse is too old-fashioned.” After he said that, he took out a cloth banner and shook it in front of Song Shuhang.
The front of the cloth banner read: [Performing divinations, the key to the heart].
Then, on the back, it read: [Golden Trigram, Silver Trigram, neither can compare to me, Ivory Trigram].
Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up. “Immortal Master Ivory Trigram?”
Because of ‘Golden Trigram, Silver Trigram’, Song Shuhang was immediately reminded of Senior Copper Trigram from the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’. If he were to follow through with this analogy, then the one in front of him was ‘Immortal Master Ivory Trigram’.
“Who the hell is Immortal Master Ivory Trigram? Who in their right mind would take such a daoist name?!” the daoist said, saliva flying out of his mouth.
Song Shuhang asked, “Then, who are you?”
The daoist gnashed his teeth, and said, “Tooth Fairy, I’m Tooth Fairy. Are you messing with me?”
“Pfff~” Song Shuhang couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Tooth Fairy? Does he mean Fairy Tooth?
However, after having a laugh, he suddenly realized something, and questions immediately popped up in his head.
Why did the man wearing the mink fur coat and this daoist directly call him Cheng Lin? Did he currently have Cheng Lin’s appearance?
Song Shuhang asked, “Daoist Tooth Fairy, in your perspective, how do you see me?”
“How do I see you?” Tooth Fairy sighed. “At first, I saw you as someone who was gentle and kind, while at other times an unparalleled empress. However… Why did you ruin the ancient Heavenly City? Tell me! Why would you destroy the Heavenly City that we all worked together to create? What were you thinking?”
After he finished speaking, Tooth Fairy had turned into a roaring emperor who continued to have his saliva spray towards Song Shuhang.
“That’s not what I’m asking.” Song Shuhang quickly took a step back to avoid the flying saliva. “What I wanted to ask was, do I currently look like Cheng Lin?”
“Huh?” Tooth Fairy couldn’t seem to understand what Song Shuhang was trying to ask.
Song Shuhang said, “In your eyes, do I look like Cheng Lin?”
Tooth Fairy replied, “What do you mean?”
“I’m not Cheng Lin.” Song Shuhang shrugged his shoulders, and said, “The person from before had pulled the wrong person over here.”
Tooth Fairy responded, “That’s impossible. Cheng Lin, even if you were to be turned into ashes, I would still recognize you.”
It was a similar line from before.
Song Shuhang said, “Aren’t you a fortune teller? Then, go ahead and perform a divination.”
Tooth Fairy asked, “What do you want me to divine?”
While saying that, he took out an ancient mirror.
The mirror reflected what Song Shuhang currently looked like—a tilted crown on his head, a white jade lotus flower under his feet, and a face that was vaguely obscured.
He really did look like Cheng Lin.
Why was I drawn into this dream and given Cheng Lin’s appearance?
“What do you want me to divine?” Tooth Fairy asked once again.
Song Shuhang replied, “Just check if I really am Cheng Lin.”
“Hehe.” Tooth Fairy made a hand seal and directed it to his ancient mirror.
Rings of light emerged from the mirror.
Tooth Fairy was especially adept at this kind of mirror divination technique.
After a while, the rings of light returned to the mirror and condensed into a twisted rune.
Tooth Fairy pointed at the twisted rune, and said, “Now, what else do you have to say for yourself?”
Song Shuhang asked, “What’s the result of the divination?”
Tooth Fairy slowly said, “Far in the horizon, close at hand. Cheng Lin, you are right in front of me.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Why did the divination seem to be so on point?
Song Shuhang asked, “Can I ask you something? Does your club of fortune tellers have some sort of ‘shady fortune teller’? The kind that would divine things that would not actually happen.”
Tooth Fairy said, “Shady fortune teller? How is that possible? That is a specialty of those metal-attribute fortune tellers, and I am not a part of their kind.”
Eh? It seemed that this Ivory Trigram and Immortal Master Copper Trigram weren’t of the same system? No wonder this guy was making fun of metal trigrams on his cloth banner.
Tooth Fairy calmly said, “What else do you want me to divine for you? You can still have me divine for you two more times.”
Song Shuhang curiously asked, “Are these free divinations?”
Tooth Fairy rolled his eyes. “Of course there’s a charge.”
Song Shuhang said, “But I have no money.”
Tooth Fairy sighed heavily, and said, “Just quickly leave the Beast Realm and don’t make too much of a fuss, that’s the best payment you can give me.”
Song Shuhang said, “In fact, I also want to leave the Beast Realm.”
Tooth Fairy said, “Then leave as soon as you possibly can.”
Song Shuhang said, “I still have to wait for a friend.” Even if he was going to leave, he had to at least leave together with Pavilion Master Chu.
“Tomorrow night… before the moon rises tomorrow night, you’d better leave the Beast Realm.” Tooth Fairy’s eyes sank slightly. “You’ve still got two more chances, what do you want me to divine?”
After the last two divinations, he would never divine anything for Cheng Lin again.
Tooth Fairy’s voice was low, and it contained a tone with a water-like gentleness.
His tone caused Song Shuhang’s hair to stand on end.
F*ck, could this guy also have had a crush on Cheng Lin?
What in the world did Empress Cheng Lin do in the ancient era?
It always seemed like Slow-Witted Song was seeking death wherever he went, and all the people of the Heavenly City hated his guts; on the contrary, Empress Cheng Lin seemed to have attracted a lot of fans, and incidentally captured the heart of the Heavenly City’s belle, Fairy @#%×, as well.
Song Shuhang asked, “For the next divination, can you check if my friend’s fate is ominous?”
Currently, one of the things that he was most worried about was Pavilion Master Chu.
Tooth Fairy did not ask who Song Shuhang’s friend was. He simply stretched out his hand and pressed it on the mirror, and then a ring of light appeared.
After a while, the ring of light condensed into a simple rune.
“Her fate isn’t ominous at all. Although your friend will be facing some minor troubles, there’s no need to worry about her life,” Tooth Fairy said calmly. “Final divination.”
Song Shuhang pondered.
In addition to the Pavilion Master Chu’s affairs, what other things did he need to have divined?
Song Shuhang asked, “Where is the thing that I’m looking for?”
Tooth Fairy said, “What are you looking for? You have to be more accurate, I’ll only be able to divine for you if you give me more information.”
“An important decoder,” Song Shuhang said—he had already grasped the secret of the ‘Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique ‘. Now, the next thing that he needed was the decoder.
Tooth Fairy nodded.
This time he carefully made a hand seal and pressed his hands against the ancient mirror.
His attitude this time was much more serious than when he had condensed the second rune.
A ring of light rose from the ancient mirror and eventually condensed into two runes.
“The thing you are looking for is hidden in a filthy place that you would never have expected. And, it isn’t in the Beast Realm.” Tooth Fairy raised his head, and said, “So, don’t waste your time at the Beast Realm, just leave.”
His last divination consisted of ‘two divinations’.
One of the divinations was on the location of the decoder, while the other one was on whether or not it was in the Beast Realm.
After finding out that what ‘Cheng Lin’ was looking for was not in the Beast Realm, Tooth Fairy felt great relief in his heart.
Song Shuhang thought, “A filthy place? It couldn’t be in the Netherworld Realm, right?”
“That was three. Cheng Lin.” Tooth Fairy gave Song Shuhang a deep look, and said, “I hope that we do not meet again in the future.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Tooth Fairy put away the ancient mirror and the cloth banner, and then turned to leave.
“Wait!” Song Shuhang shouted. “At least send me out of this dream.”
Tooth Fairy curiously asked, “Can’t you leave by yourself?”
Song Shuhang replied, “I don’t know how to leave.”
Tooth Fairy stared at Song Shuhang.
After a while, he stretched out his hand towards Song Shuhang. At this moment, Song Shuhang saw everything blur, and the grassland world became unreal.
Song Shuhang’s figure gradually disappeared.
Tooth Fairy stayed in place, motionless.
A moment later, the young man wearing the mink fur coat appeared once again, still holding his wine jar. “Did you ask Cheng Lin about what she’s planning on doing?”
Tooth Fairy shook his head. After thinking for a while, he said, “Cheng Lin seems to be in a strange state.”
The young man in the mink fur coat said, “She’s pretending.” After that, he directly raised the wine jar and drank from it.
“No, she doesn’t seem to be pretending. She seems to really have forgotten a lot of things,” Tooth Fairy said. “I just secretly performed a divination, and the results were very strange.”
The young man asked, “Could there be something wrong with her path to Immortality?”
Tooth Fairy suddenly said, “I want to secretly confirm her status.”
The young man rolled his eyes, and said, “So, you’re planning to let a large group of guys who hate her guts follow you and kill her?”
Tooth Fairy confidently said, “Relax, I won’t directly go to her. As long as you cover me, it won’t be a problem to hide from those other oldies.”
Back at the Black Horse Branch of the All the Humans of the World Should Unite and Become a Family.
Song Shuhang opened his eyes.
The sky had already turned bright—he had unknowingly practiced all night.
Song Shuhang took out his phone and turned on the camera facing him.
What appeared on the phone was a handsome man.
“Fortunately, I didn’t become Cheng Lin.” He secretly let out a breath of relief.
In addition, if that Great Master Ivory Trigram isn’t a shady fortune teller, then the decoder that I’m looking for should be hidden in an unexpected and filthy place, but where would that be?
Also, what has Slow-Witted Song hidden in this odd human alliance in the Beast Realm?
As he was thinking, Song Shuhang got up and walked out of the room.
As soon as he went out, he saw a large group of people sitting around his residence.
Members of the Black Horse Branch had surrounded his residence. At this time, they were all in a state of practice, and they all had satisfied faces.
Song Shuhang was puzzled.
What’s going on, why are all the members of the branch gathered here?
