And so, the virtuous lamia brought back the demonic dragon beast that had been cut in two.
The demonic dragon beast’s consciousness had completely degraded, and it had fallen into an endless state of frenzy. It could already be said to belong to the demons of the Netherworld.
Song Shuhang summoned out the lotus roots, and had them stab into the body of the demonic dragon beast.
When all the evil energy in the demonic dragon beast had been absorbed, Song Shuhang sensed that his ‘Inner World’ had entered another round of evolution.
Although this evolution would take quite a bit of time, while it was upgrading, it would not affect the various functions of the Inner World in any way.
Due to this, Song Shuhang also secretly let out a breath of relief.
It would really be a problem if he were to be unable to use the functions of the Inner World while facing the crisis that was currently taking place in the Beast Realm. If it was so, his chances of surviving would immediately drop by more than half.
The demonic dragon beast’s body had completely been filled with evil energy. Because of that, after the evil energy of the Netherworld on its body was drained, only its bones were left behind.
This dragon beast was nevertheless a being that had reached the Sixth Stage Realm during its lifetime, so its bones were also a good material for forging if used properly. As such, Song Shuhang put away the bones of the dragon beast and placed them together with the rest of the materials that he had harvested this time.
At this time, outside the Black Horse Branch.
After seeing that powerful demonic dragon beast getting killed in a single slash, the ‘infected’ that were outside the Black Horse Branch, as well as their companions, shuddered in fear.
Before this, there were still some anxious patients that wanted to cut in line, and there were even some that directly wanted to break into the Black Horse Branch. But now, they would all have to first compare their strength to that dragon beast just now, and then consider whether they would even be able to survive that strike from the Virtuous Empress.
It was a sleepless night.
There was a huge number of ‘infected’ that came from all over. With that, there was a constant stream of people being sent to Song Shuhang’s residence throughout the entire night, making it so that he did not even have the time to rest until sunrise the next day.
Song Shuhang thought, There are a lot more infected people than I initially thought…
All the patients that had been sent to him starting from last night until now were those who’d been within one day’s distance from the Black Horse Branch. It was conceivable that the number of patients would only increase in the following days.
Those who were sent over were still people that had been sealed in time, and had yet to completely fall and turn into demon cultivators.
“It seems that the ruler of the Netherworld is really unleashing a biochemical crisis in the Beast Realm.” Song Shuhang rubbed his eyebrows.
At this time, Kindness pushed open the door to Song Shuhang’s room and came in. “Good morning, Senior Tyrannical Song. Would you like some breakfast?”
She was carrying a light porridge in her hand. The porridge contained some medicinal herbs that made it refreshing, and also helped one revitalize one’s energy.
Song Shuhang nodded, and said, “Thank you.”
“It is us who should be thanking you, Senior. You’re the one who has worked hard all night.” Kindness then placed the porridge beside Song Shuhang.
Kindness acted just as how her name suggested. During the entire time that Song Shuhang had been in contact with her, he could feel the kindness and cuteness of this little girl.
However… perhaps it was because she had been living within the ‘Black Horse Branch’ and barely made contact with the outside world, but Kindness was just a little bit too kind.
When Song Shuhang looked at Kindness this time, he looked at her with eyes that had a faint trace of worry, similar to how the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Chat Group had looked at him when he first joined the chat group.
At that time, the seniors in the group had been worried that Song Shuhang would be too kind and generous. Fortunately, Song Shuhang was not that gentle, which left the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group at ease.
“Senior Tyrannical Song, there will be more and more infected people coming to our Black Horse Branch soon. How many days are you going to stay with us?” Kindness asked with an expectant look on her face.
“It depends, but Kindness, I won’t be able to stay here forever.” Song Shuhang picked up the porridge and let out a sigh.
Kindness nodded. “I know, I just want Senior Tyrannical Song to stay a little longer. If you can stay a bit longer, more people will be saved.”
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “Kindness, the Beast Realm is huge. Even if I were to use everything I had for an entire day, I would not be able to save all of the infected.”
“I know.” Kindness nodded. “It’s just that I also want to do everything in my power to improve the situation.”
When Song Shuhang heard these words, he slightly froze before laughing out loud.
Kindness’ answer was very similar to his answer to the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
In this respect, Kindness’ character was also very similar to his.
“Knock, knock, knock.”
At this time, knocks could be heard coming from outside the room.
It was Great Master Turtle.
This time, he had not brought any patients with him, and simply came by himself.
Song Shuhang said, “Come in.”
Great Master Turtle entered, and said, “Good morning, Mister Tyrannical Song.”
After saying that, he gently waved his hand, and said, “Kindness, I’m going to be talking about some secretive stuff with Mister Tyrannical Song. It would be best if you leave first.”
“Okay, Great Master Turtle.” Kindness nodded and left the room.
Song Shuhang asked, “Have you gotten something back from them, Great Master Turtle?”
Great Master Turtle replied, “Yes, after I sent the message to the headquarters, the headquarters gave me an answer. There is a huge saltwater lake, [Asura Lake], in the east of the Beast Realm, and its shores are all composed of salt crystals. At its center, there is a passage connected to the main world that opens every two years or so. However, this saltwater lake is controlled by a powerful beast cultivator sect called [Divine Asura Sect]. If Senior Tyrannical Song wants to borrow the passage, you would have to communicate with the Divine Asura Sect.”
The two years he mentioned referred to the time scale of Earth.
Song Shuhang asked, “It only opens once every two years? When was the last time it opened?”
Great Master Turtle replied, “According to the time on Earth, it should have opened about two months ago.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
In other words, if he wanted to use this passageway to return to the main world, he would have to wait for at least a year and 10 months?
“Thank you, Great Master.” Song Shuhang sighed.
One year and 10 months, I don’t think I can afford to wait that long.
I guess I’ll just keep that piece of news in mind for now.
I can only pray for Pavilion Master Chu to finish her business smoothly and take me back to the main world.
Great Master Turtle left Song Shuhang’s room.
Song Shuhang raised his head and quietly looked at the ceiling in a daze.
One year and 10 months… That was nearly two years. If he were not to return for two years, his family who didn’t know anything about where he went would probably be extremely worried.
Calculating the time, it should have already been four, five days since he had become involved in the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion incident.
The Mid-Autumn Festival should have already passed, and so classes should have already started as well.
I wonder what happened to Little Cai and Lady Onion, who were going through their inner demon tribulation…
Would Su Clan’s Sixteen and Senior White go looking for me after I disappeared?
I hope I didn’t cause too much of a mess in the main world with my disappearance.
Song Shuhang suddenly asked, “Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, can you cut through space?”
“I’m a sword, a sword! I’m not a spatial magical treasure. Also, don’t you still have Senior Turtle? Can’t it use spatial powers?” Scarlet Heaven reminded.
Song Shuhang replied, “F*ck, I forgot.”
Although Senior Turtle had been sealed, it could still use its teleportation abilities.
He immediately contacted Senior Turtle who was in the Inner World.
Song Shuhang quickly said, “Senior Turtle~ Can you hear me? Can you help me open a spatial gate that would let me return to the main world?”
The sea turtle: “Heavens~ My realm is sealed right now, so the distance I can make the spatial gate reach is quite limited. Even if I used up all my power, it would only be able to teleport one from the south pole of the Earth to its north pole at best. Teleporting from the Beast Realm to the main world is way beyond my current ability.”
Song Shuhang sighed, and said, “Heavens.”
The sea turtle said, “Yeah, heavens indeed. Even I want to go home.”
Song Shuhang sighed again and continued to look at the sky in a daze.
After a moment, he thought of another thing.
Song Shuhang asked, “Oh, Senior Turtle, do you know Slow-Witted Song? What does Slow-Witted Song look like?”
He’d asked Pavilion Master Chu about Slow-Witted Song before, but Pavilion Master Chu’s drawing was pretty bad.
“Slow-Witted Song, from a human’s point of view, is quite handsome, just a little worse than my master,” the sea turtle said. “However, from the perspective of turtles, he is not stylish at all.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Is there any way for Senior Turtle to project the appearance of Slow-Witted Song for me to see?”
The sea turtle responded, “No problem.”
After saying that, it cast a small magical technique and projected the ‘Slow-Witted Song’ from its memory.
What appeared was a scholarly student with a long sword at his waist. His hair was a bright golden color. Moreover, although his facial features were very common at first glance, when they were viewed carefully, one would find them more and more pleasing.
This was Slow-Witted Song?
This handsome scholar was completely different from what Song Shuhang’s fragmented information about the Slow-Witted Song that ‘loved to seek death, was the first to run away, always called for help when losing, and would get beaten up to the point where he began crying’ suggested.
“It turns out that he’s blond?” Song Shuhang was a little surprised.
The sea turtle replied, “It is said that Slow-Witted Song’s hair had been black in his earlier days, but changed after drinking the blood of the Golden Dragon Ancestor. Tsk, tsk, tsk.”
“Something like that happened?” Song Shuhang pinched his chin. It seemed that Slow-Witted Song and the Golden Dragon Ancestor really had a good relationship.
He stared at the picture of Slow-Witted Song for a long time.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Turtle, do you think that I’m similar to Slow-Witted Song?”
The sea turtle said, “Someone that loves to seek death? Someone with a ton of methods? Someone who had many wanting to beat him up?”
Song Shuhang replied, “No, I’m talking about in terms of appearance.”
The sea turtle said, “Little friend Song, dreams are to be left for the evening.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
While they were talking, an electromagnetic sound rang in Song Shuhang’s ear.
This sound was very harsh.
Song Shuhang rubbed his ear.
[Hello, is this No. Tyrannical Song? Please answer when you receive this. Buzz~]
It was a very deep voice of a man. Song Shuhang had never heard this voice before.
[Please answer when you receive this~ Please answer when you receive this~ Is this No. Tyrannical Song? The remote communication fee is very expensive, it costs several dollars every second. Time is money.]
Song Shuhang answered, “I am.”
[Great, I was finally able to determine your location. What happened to your ‘personal world’? Its signal seems to be blocked. My master lost connection with his avatar. Now, my master can only stay inside the world of the evil lotus,] the heavy voice said.
Song Shuhang used the mental communication to ask, [Is your master Senior White?]
Was it Senior White Two?
[Yes~ Determining No. Tyrannical Song’s coordinates, spatial jump inbound,] the deep voice replied.
That guy was coming over?
