The virtuous lamia wrapped around Song Shuhang, repelling all of the evil energy.
Song Shuhang gently said, “All of you take a few steps back to avoid getting affected.” In a short while, he was going to urge his lotus roots to absorb the ‘evil energy of the Netherworld’. It was best if others did not see it.
Great Master Turtle took the few disciples of his companion along with the branch head and Kindness, and then retreated a fair distance.
Light of virtue burst out from Song Shuhang, and the lotus roots emerged and pierced into the fallen cultivator. The seemingly huge amount of evil energy was quickly absorbed by the lotus roots.
The quality of the evil energy here is much lower than those of the fallen people on Earth… Song Shuhang thought to himself.
Despite the people on Earth only being ordinary ones, the quality of the evil energy within their bodies had been much higher. If they were to be compared, one was the work of a fine master, while the other was merely something produced by an assembly line.
After the evil energy was drained, the fallen cultivator fell unconscious.
Song Shuhang retracted his light of virtue and turned his head. “It’s done. Fortunately, he hadn’t completely turned into a demon, otherwise, even I would not have been able to do anything.”
Great Master Turtle’s seal was really timely; it was able to slow down the speed of his companion’s demonification. In this way, after all of the evil energy of the Netherworld was taken from the other party, they could return to their original state.
Great Master Turtle said, “Thank you, Mister Tyrannical Song.”
“He will be experiencing a period of weakness for a while, but he will be able to recover with some supplements. In addition, there are still hidden dangers left in his body due to the invasion of the evil energy, so it would be best to look for some medicine that would be able to treat him so that there won’t be any dangers left behind,” Song Shuhang reminded the other party.
Great Master Turtle nodded repeatedly. He then undid the seal that he had placed and examined his companion carefully. Sure enough, all of the evil energy of the Netherworld that was sticking to his companion’s bones was completely gone.
The methods of Profound Sage Tyrannical Song were truly unfathomable.
At this time, the three men with turtle shells on their backs looked at Song Shuhang with admiration.
This was the first Sage in a thousand years, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song.
That was a problem that they had no way of dealing with, yet Profound Sage Tyrannical Song dealt with it in such a short time.
A goal emerged in the hearts of the three young men.
As long as they worked hard, they could also become as powerful as Profound Sage Tyrannical Song one day!
Anyway, when this thought emerged in his mind, a young man’s face suddenly changed.
On his wrist, a bronze bracelet slightly began fluctuating.
[Do you want power? Do you want to have the strength to match the man in front of you? Do you want to beat all of those who displease you?]
The young man suddenly said, “What’s this voice?”
Everyone around him turned to look at him.
Song Shuhang asked, “Is there something wrong?”
Kindness promptly translated Song Shuhang’s words.
The young man said, “Senior Tyrannical Song, there was a voice that seemed to be trying to entice me, asking me if I wanted power.”
Great Master Turtle and the branch head immediately shouted, “Do you have any broken swords, broken sabers, or anything of the like on you right now?”
“No.” The young man shook his head.
Great Master Turtle again asked, “Did you pick up any strange treasures when you were with your master recently?”
“Pick up any treasures? Oh, I found this bracelet while we were traveling. It looked very beautiful, so I picked it up and put it on.” After saying that, the young man took off his bracelet.
Sure enough, it was something similar to the broken saber and the broken sword; there was likely some evil energy of the Netherworld hidden within the bracelet.
Song Shuhang took the bracelet. It appeared to be even more delicate than the broken saber and the broken sword. However, its lines were the same kind as the broken saber from before.
Song Shuhang thought, Can’t you change the script a bit?
After thinking that, he said to Great Master Turtle and the others, “This bracelet is of the same kind as that broken saber from before. With the power of temptation, it can seep into people’s hearts and make them fall and become demons. How about just giving it to me?”
Great Master Turtle nodded repeatedly.
The young man was shocked to hear that the bracelet that he was wearing was of the same kind as the thing that had caused his teacher to fall into such a state.
Song Shuhang did not immediately destroy the bracelet, as he was preparing to bring it back with him. The seniors of ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ would definitely be interested in such an object.
Anyway, this makes it the third time that I encountered a demonic item of the Netherworld in a single day. Isn’t that a little too much?
How many such things are there in the Beast Realm?
Is the ruler of the Netherworld planning to turn all of the residents of the Beast Realm into demons?
Or could this be due to the changes happening to the Wielder of the Will? Song Shuhang’s heart moved.
The ruler of the Netherworld was the other side of the Wielder of the Will. Was the ruler of the Netherworld acting so rampantly due to the fall of the current Wielder of the Heaven’s Will being imminent?
Song Shuhang said, “Fellow Daoist Gui, you’d better inform all of the members of ‘All the Humans of the World Should Unite and Become a Family’ organization of this matter. I suspect that a large number of similar items, all of which draw people into becoming demons, has appeared in the Beast Realm.”
Great Master Turtle nodded. He also felt quite uneasy. After hearing Song Shuhang’s suggestion, he immediately contacted the alliance headquarters and reported the matter.
After Great Master Turtle reported the matter, he almost immediately got a response.
Great Master Turtle said, “Damn it.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Are there already other victims?”
Great Master Turtle gritted his teeth, and said, “Ever since I reported the status of my companion and sent a request for assistance to the alliance yesterday, the alliance has counted over 200 similar incidents. All those people have fallen and become demons of the Netherworld. Moreover, over 80% of them are already too far gone for the process to be reversed.”
At the same time, he was slowly becoming afraid.
If he had not been fortunate enough to meet Profound Sage Tyrannical Song today, his companion probably would’ve been one of that 80% that no longer had a chance of recovering as well.Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
“So many?” Song Shuhang furrowed his brows.
This was only the intelligence that had been received by the human alliance. There were definitely more than just those 200 incidents as it was nearly impossible for all of the incidents to have been reported.
Great Master Turtle said, “Our alliance is only a medium-sized force in the Beast Realm. If the infection rate that the other forces are experiencing is similar, the number of infected in the Beast Realm over the past night should already be over 100,000.”
The current ruler of the Netherworld was making a big move!
Was there going to be something like an outbreak?
[Senior White, Senior White, are you there?] Song Shuhang quickly called out in his mind.
This time, Senior White Two did not respond to him.
“This isn’t good.” Song Shuhang rubbed his eyebrows.
The Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion had been forcibly moved. Song Shuhang suspected that there were forces in the Beast Realm that were trying to rebuild the Heavenly City using the ‘Original Heavenly City’ as its centerpiece. That man wearing the mink fur coat, as well as that Immortal Master Ivory Trigram, were probably also involved in the incident concerning the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion.
And now, the ruler of the Netherworld was causing trouble in the Beast Realm.
The Beast Realm was really done for.
In the future, the Beast Realm could become too unsafe for one to reside in. I really want to go back to Earth.
Kindness looked expectantly at Song Shuhang, and said, “Senior Tyrannical Song, can you help us?”
She was very anxious after hearing that so many people in the alliance had been infected by the evil energy of the Netherworld. Just like a drowning man grabbing a straw, she immediately thought of asking Song Shuhang for help.
However, after asking for help, she felt rather uneasy and quite embarrassed for asking Song Shuhang for such a thing. As such, she lowered her head in embarrassment.
Song Shuhang patted Kindness’ head lightly. “The distances I would have to travel are simply too great. I’m not like a Tribulation Transcender, who would be able to travel tens of thousands of miles in the blink of an eye. However, I will stay in the Black Horse Branch for a while. If an infected member of your alliance isn’t too far from the branch, send them over. If they can still be saved, I will help.”
Of course he would help. Why would he refuse some evil energy of the Netherworld coming right to his doorstep?
After hearing Song Shuhang’s reply, Kindness happily said, “Senior Tyrannical Song, you really are a good senior.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Great Master Turtle also quickly reported to the alliance and apprised them of the good news.
At the same time, he got people to prepare a variety of forging materials—Profound Sage Tyrannical Song promised to cure those who were infected. It wouldn’t be fitting for their alliance to accept such goodwill without giving anything in return.
And giving spirit stones as remuneration would simply be in too poor of a taste.
Therefore, it was best to reward the other party with hard currency of the world of cultivation—forging materials.
Song Shuhang would not have thought that while he was harvesting evil energy of the Netherworld, he would also be able to harvest a bunch of forging materials.
Great Master Turtle supported his companion as everyone returned to the Black Horse Branch.
Song Shuhang asked, “Fellow Daoist Gui, do you know if there is a way to the main world from the Beast Realm?”
There had to be a passage between the main world and the Beast Realm, and it should have been what those Seventh and Eighth Stage beast cultivators had used to reach the main world.
Great Master Turtle shook his head, and replied, “This junior is not strong enough to know such information, so I have never paid attention to such things. If Senior Tyrannical Song wants some information on it, I can ask the alliance head. The alliance head should know something about that.”
Song Shuhang nodded, and said, “Then I’ll be troubling you, Fellow Daoist Gui.”
The Beast Realm was about to undergo an upheaval. It would be great if he had a way to return to the main world on his own just in case.
It would be even better if Pavilion Master Chu was able to finish up at the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, and then come pick him up and bring him back to the main world. If there was a chance to return, he would grasp that chance tightly, and also try to bring Pavilion Master Chu back with him.
As Song Shuhang pondered, a spatial gate opened right in front of him.
Is it Pavilion Master Chu? Did she come just as I was thinking about it?
Regrettably, a man’s hairy leg was the one that stepped out of the spatial gate, and not Pavilion Master Chu’s beautiful leg.
“A spatial gate, a Tribulation Transcender!”
In the next moment, a scholar with disheveled hair came out from the spatial gate.
His hair was in a mess, his clothes were unkempt, and he only had one shoe left.
It was the head of the 13 Tribulation Transcender-level disciples of the Scholarly Sage, Daozi.
He, who still looked like he had a problem in the head, turned to look at Song Shuhang.
He smirked, and said, “Haha, I found you.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior, you were looking for me?”
“Yeah, I wanted to borrow something from you, hehehe.” Daozi was still wearing a smirk on his face.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Daozi, what do you want to borrow from me?”
When he heard the name ‘Daozi’, his face froze for a moment.
However, he quickly regained his smirk, and said, “I want to borrow a scripture from you. If you give it to me, I will definitely give you benefits in return.”
Song Shuhang took out ❮Writing of the Sage❯ as he believed it should be what Daozi wanted.
“Hehehe.” Daozi received the scriptures, and said, “I will now repay you with a beautiful palace, it’s old and magnificent.”
After saying that, Daozi extended his hand, and then a gigantic palace fell right in front of Song Shuhang.
The palace was beautiful.
The only problem was that it was unbearably stinky.
