Song Shuhang was reviving!
Yes, he was currently being resurrected.
The location of his resurrection was at the edge of the Inner World’s [living spring].
He had buried his ‘life talisman’ at the living spring location, causing this to be the location where he would be resurrected should he die.
Song Shuhang was dumbfounded. “F*ck, what happened? why did I die?”
Beside him, Pavilion Master Chu’s beautiful eyes were looking at him. She was currently floating in the living spring, it looked as if she was taking a hot spring bath.
Her long hair was spread out and hung on the shore of the living spring.
It was a picturesque scene of a beautiful woman bathing.
It was a pity that this beauty currently only had her head.
Pavilion Master Chu asked calmly, “Did you die?”
Song Shuhang nodded confusedly.
The last thing he could remember was him stepping on the black lotus and avoiding the strange holy light in a cool way.
After… There was no after.
He couldn’t remember anything after, he just somehow found that he was at the resurrection point.
Song Shuhang smiled bitterly and said, “I don’t even know how I died.”
Fortunately, he still had the life talisman, and with the effects of the [living spring], he was able to resurrect perfectly.
Pavilion Master Chu asked, “Did you get assassinated?”
“No.” Song Shuhang shook his head and said, “There was a cold holy light that was trying to assassinate me before, but it was eventually blocked. My last memory is that of me cooly avoiding the danger, and then inexplicably dying. I guess I can just ask Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword about it later to figure out how I died.”
Pavilion Master Chu asked, “What happened with that attack that almost destroyed your world?”
She thought she was going to die.
Under that attack, nothing would have been left of her body. Even if Slow-Witted Song wanted to use Cheng Lin’s path to immortality to resurrect her, there wouldn’t be anything of herself left to be used for the resurrection.
Song Shuhang said, “It was a scary planet with a big eye that attacked us from across space. It was an attack that could destroy worlds. Fortunately, my Inner World finished upgrading, and so there is no longer a need to worry about it getting locked onto by similar entities in the future.”
Even if he were to encounter a similar attack in the future, the Inner World could enter that special space again, allowing him to avoid spatial locks and attacks.
Pavilion Master Chu went silent for a moment, before saying, “Your ability to invite trouble is not much worse than Slow-Witted Song’s.”
“I can’t be blamed for that.” Song Shuhang smiled bitterly and said, “This time, I was just an unfortunate person caught in the crossfire. My glabella was really dark today, so I was very unlucky.”
Moreover, although he would sometimes court death for no good reason at all, under normal circumstances, he was very sensible and would not seek death.
Song Shuhang looked up at the sky and sighed, “Although the life talisman had to be used before or at the Fourth Stage as it would become ineffective once I reached the Fifth Stage, I didn’t necessarily have to be the one to use it up, right? Even if I were to ascend to the Fifth Stage in the future and no longer had a use for it, I could still pass it on to my disciples. ”
While he was saying that, his body had finally finished reconstructing.
After he resurrected, his body was still a little weak, but with the nourishment of the [living spring], it would soon begin recovering.
Song Shuhang re-examined his body.
The fat whale illusory core, the whale bone immortal bone, and even the golden finger on his left hand had all recovered. Other than his magical treasure that had not followed him, he was exactly the same as how he was before he resurrected.
No, there were actually some differences.
First of all, he was no longer in the ‘liquefied state’ that Senior Phoenix Slayer had put him into—it was a bit of a pity that it was gone, the liquified state had actually helped him quite a bit when he was in the Beast Realm.
Besides that, his physique seems to have gotten slightly stronger.
Also, after experiencing death, his will became even firmer.
Pavilion Master Chu asked, “I paid attention to your life talisman. That is no longer an ordinary ‘life talisman’ as it has already become involved with a path to immortality. Where did you get such a life talisman?”
If the members of her Crystal-Clear Pavilion had such powerful ‘life talismans’ back then, perhaps many of them would have survived.
“A path to immortality? Is this life talisman so incredible?” Song Shuhang was surprised.
No wonder the effect of his life talisman was so amazing.
After the surprise came a great wave of mental and physical pain.
The pain made him feel as if his heart was cut by a knife.
When he had faced the modernized heavenly tribulation in the ‘Heavenly Tribulation Realm’, he was able to pull through without using this precious life talisman.
When he had faced Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s duel, and when the fragments of the steel fortress exploded, he was still able to pull through without using this precious life talisman.
And, even just now, when he had faced the terrible attack of the big-eyed planet, he was able to get through the ordeal without having to use the precious life talisman.
He was able to get through all of those calamities without his boat overturning.
This powerful life talisman had not been used at a critical moment but was randomly used just now.
Countless small waves of pain fused into a big one, so it still felt as if there was a blade cutting at his heart.
After sighing deeply, Song Shuhang replied to Pavilion Master Chu, “This life talisman was given to me by a senior as compensation. At that time, he used one of my resurrection bamboo leaves, so he repaid me with this life talisman.”
“I see.” Pavilion Master Chu nodded.
Song Shuhang stretched his back and felt that his body had completely recovered.
He said, “Senior Chu, you should continue to rest. I’m going to ask about how I died just now.”
Now that his ‘life talisman’ was gone, he no longer had any other chances of coming back to life.
In order to ensure his safety under the horrid luck he currently had, he would have to be more cautious.
“Go ahead.” Pavilion Master Chu’s voice was low.
Maybe it was just him, but he seemed to sense that Pavilion Master Chu’s mood was a bit low.
He turned to look at Pavilion Master Chu and discovered that she had most of her head buried in the water, her eyes blurry.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Chu, is there something wrong?”
“I just suddenly thought of something.” Pavilion Master Chu said, “Slow-Witted Song said that he had mastered Cheng Lin’s path to immortality and could resurrect me with it. At first I was shocked, because generally speaking, it was impossible for a person to impart their path to immortality to others. Also, everyone’s ‘path’ is unique, but Slow-Witted Song was somehow able to learn Cheng Lin’s path to immortality. When Slow-Witted Song told me that he would resurrect me with that special path, I felt very happy and had not really thought much about it.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Then what?”
Pavilion Master Chu said, “Then I thought about how Cheng Lin was willing to teach Slow-Witted Song her path to immortality. That is her biggest secret! Other than dao companions, I can’t think of any other kind of relationship that would allow one to tell someone else their biggest secret. There must definitely be something between her and Slow-Witted Song. And now, I’m in a bad mood.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
He didn’t know how to reply to her.
He regretted having opened his mouth and asking Pavilion Master Chu this question.
Song Shuhang asked, “Pavilion Master Chu, do you like Slow-Witted Song?”
“What are you saying?” Pavilion Master Chu sighed for a long time, and plunged half of her face into the living spring and started blowing bubbles.
Song Shuhang pondered.
Song Shuhang asked, “Pavilion Master Chu, isn’t one’s path to immortality something that cannot be taught to others?”
Pavilion Master Chu nodded and replied, “Theoretically, a path to immortality is like a fingerprint. It is a law, and if you master this law, others cannot.”
Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up. “Then there are two possibilities!”
Pavilion Master Chu raised her head and looked at him.
“First, the Slow-Witted Song you met could have been fake!” Song Shuhang said seriously, “He may have been just been Fairy Cheng Lin pretending to be him. Also, during Ye Si’s tribulation, Fairy Cheng Lin had appeared.”
Pavilion Master Chu shook her head.
She said softly, “He couldn’t have been fake. Although his appearance was different, there’s no one other than him who would have such an aura and character.”
When she needed him most, Slow-Witted Song had come to save her. How could she mistake him for someone else?
“So, it’s the second possibility.” Song Shuhang raised a second finger. “Slow-Witted Song contracted Fairy Cheng Lin.”
“Huh?” Pavilion Master Chu’s eyes widened.
Song Shuhang said, “Fairy Cheng Lin is a ghost spirit, so if Slow-Witted Song signed a contract with Fairy Cheng Lin, with the connection between a ghost spirit and its master, perhaps Slow-Witted Song could have borrowed Fairy Cheng Lin’s path to immortality! ”
Pavilion Master Chu asked, “What you said might be possible, but the question is, doesn’t Fairy Cheng Lin already have a master?”
She remembered that Cheng Lin had a master. The reason she became Ye Si’s family’s ghost spirit was that her master had wished so.
Song Shuhang said, “According to what I’ve heard, Fairy Cheng Lin’s master is very special. However, I cannot speak of her master as I will be censored if I did.”
After all, Fairy Cheng Lin’s master was the Third Wielder of the Will!
Song Shuhang continued, “Her master’s status is very special. If Fairy Cheng Lin had signed a ghost contract with Slow-Witted Song, I would not be surprised.”
“Really?” Pavilion Master Chu’s eyes lit up.
Song Shuhang said, “Yep.”
Pavilion Master Chu lowered her head in contemplation.
After a long while, she suddenly looked at Song Shuhang. “Little friend Song Shuhang, after Ye Si became your spirit ghost, have you considered taking other female cultivators as your dao companion?”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Heavens, how did the topic end up going to me?
“Do you not want to answer? It seems that you’ve met other female cultivators besides Ye Si. And, since you and Ye Si have yet to become dao companions, even if you were to encounter other female cultivators, there would not be a problem.” Pavilion Master Chu plunged her head into the spring and blew bubbles again.
After blowing bubbles for a while, she floated up again and said with a smirk, “However, Ye Si has become your ghost spirit. Even if you want to look for other female cultivators to take as your dao companion, they must first get through her. The master would always be influenced by their ghost spirit, and it’s especially the case with Ye Si as she is different from ordinary spirit ghosts with her having her own independent thoughts.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Seeing Song Shuhang with a troubled face caused Pavilion Master Chu to become happy.
On the other side, at the Palace of Winter’s forging table.
In the glove forged from whale bone, a pool of liquid was constantly moving around.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Shuhang, stop playing around. Get off the glove.”
