The two fist techniques were completely different; one was a buddhist fist technique, while the other was associated with beast cultivators.
However, after using the ‘Huge Whale Spout’ to condense the fat whale projection, he found that they were just different ways of doing the same thing, especially when recalling the buddhist warrior projection of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯. The feeling that the two fist techniques gave him was very similar.
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue quipped, “Similar? Are you talking about how both fist techniques condense projections?”
Song Shuhang pondered for a while, and said, “Perhaps… Well, I feel that if I can delve into the principles of the two fist techniques, I just might be able to combine the advantages of both fist techniques.”
Of course, Song Shuhang couldn’t actually do something like creating a fist technique. He would first have to reach a higher realm and acquire a lot of knowledge like Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue before even being able to consider creating a fist technique.
At the side, the sea turtle smiled, and said, “Combining the two fist techniques, Buddhist Fat Whale Fist?”
Song Shuhang: “Ugh!”
What the hell was that ‘Buddhist Fat Whale Fist’? Even if he really did end up combining the advantages of the two fist techniques one day, he would at least call it something like Whale King’s Demon Subduing Fist.
Scarlet Heaven Sword suggested, “How about calling it Demon Subduing Flaming Whale Saber?”
Song Shuhang rubbed his face. “Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, we’re talking about fist techniques! Just how strong is your fondness for sabers?”
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue, who was watching by the side, covered her mouth and giggled. At this moment, she was dripping wet in sweat, looking fragile and tender, and causing those who looked at her to feel pity for her. There was probably nobody who would be able to associate the current her with the fairy who was hammering down with a big and small hammer a few moments ago.
The sea turtle said, “Other than that fist technique, did you get any other abilities? If not, how can it even be considered to be an Eighth Stage magical treasure?”
Song Shuhang replied, “It’s an Eighth Stage magical treasure with four layers of restrictive seals. In fact, it can only exert the power of a Fourth Stage magical treasure with the current strength that I have. Anyways, it also enhances the power of my cultivation technique and the recovery speed of my true qi and spiritual energy, and adds various damage effects. Furthermore, I can even use a Fifth Stage Realm secret technique while still being at the Fourth Stage Realm, it’s just that if I were to use it, I would have to pay a price.”
The explosive secret technique, [Defiant Whale Golden Body], was something that he could use in advance at the Fourth Stage, but doing so would damage his physical body.
Currently, he was going to treat it as a life-saving skill, and would not use it unless he was in a critical situation.
After saying that, Song Shuhang lightly touched the glove on his right hand, lamenting, “In the beginning, when I had just become a cultivator, the ‘life-bound magical treasure’ I dreamt of having was a divine sword. I wanted to traverse the skies on a sword releasing explosive sword qi.”
At some later point in time, he felt that his life-bound magical treasure was going to be a saber. Although he didn’t want to admit it, he did have quite an affinity for sabers.
Never would he have expected to get pranked by the heavens, with his life-bound magical treasure ending up as a set of gloves.
In order to fully display the power of this life-bound magical treasure, wouldn’t he now have to consider learning other fist techniques?
In the future, was he going to get nicknames like the Invincible Iron Fist Song Shuhang or something like that?
Ugh, it just really isn’t as nice to the ear as Tyrannical Saber Song One…
After completing the life-bound magical treasure, Song Shuhang left the Inner World and returned to the Beast Realm.
With the Inner World having finished upgrading, it was now in a state of expansion, and it was using the surplus of evil energy of the Netherworld that it had obtained from Senior White Two to do so.
In addition, it sent Song Shuhang a message saying that it required a lot of ‘evil energy of the Netherworld’. Most of the evil energy that it had acquired from Senior White Two had been used when it resisted the attack of the ‘big-eyed planet’. The remaining evil energy was not enough for the Inner World to complete its expansion.
As such, Song Shuhang returned to the Beast Realm in preparation for resuming his life as a ‘divine doctor’. However, he now needed to be a bit more careful when drawing out the evil energy from others not to unknowingly get cursed like before. As long as Senior White Two created a way to prevent him from getting cursed, he would be able to continue without problems.
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue and Song Shuhang left the Inner World together, but she no longer had the mood to go shopping now. She simply followed Song Shuhang, hoping to get the latest news on Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue and Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue from him.
As for the sea turtle, it chose to rest at the Palace of Winter.
The virtuous lamia swallowed Scarlet Heaven Sword and returned to Song Shuhang’s body. The virtuous fat whale and the white-haired man that was inside it were left outside.
When Song Shuhang returned to the Beast Realm, he found that it was already dawn, and the sky was getting brighter. He remembered that when he had entered the Inner World to prepare to forge the treasure, it was still evening. Unexpectedly, it was already the next morning.
During that entire time, Kindness stayed in Song Shuhang’s room, awaiting his return.
When she saw Song Shuhang return, Kindness blinked, and happily said, “Senior Tyrannical Song, did you finish forging your magical treasure?”
She saw that Song Shuhang had returned to his human form, and was no longer in the ‘steel hands mode’—this also meant that Senior Tyrannical Song had finished forging his treasure.
Song Shuhang nodded with a smile. “Yep, it was a success. Anyway, have all the patients who are in need of treatment arrived?”
Kindness said, “The patients have already been arranged by Great Master Turtle and the Branch Head. They are just waiting for Senior Tyrannical Song to start the treatment. But this time, the number of patients has decreased… Our Black Horse Branch is simply too remote, and many of those who have yet to arrive have already completely degraded into demons.”
Song Shuhang reached out and patted Kindness’ head. “We’ve already done the best we can; we have a clear conscience. In addition, the commotion the evil energy of the Netherworld has caused this time is enormous, the forces of the Beast Realm will definitely take action. They will be able to soon figure out a way to deal with the evil energy of the Netherworld.”
The morning sun rose, signaling the beginning of a new day.
And so, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song evil energy healing center reopened for business.
The patients entered Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s room in an orderly manner, and then left in the same manner after recovering from the infection.
Because of Senior White Two’s reminder, Song Shuhang was more careful when using the Inner World to absorb the evil energy of the Netherworld. Every time he drew out the evil energy, he would have the virtuous lamia wrapped around him.
The light of virtue was an effective way to block curses; even if it couldn’t block it completely, it would at the very least be able to detect it.
If he really did end up getting cursed again, he would immediately go back to the Inner World and wait for Senior White Two to remove the curse from him.
The evil energy he obtained from healing others was happily accepted by the Inner World for its expansion.
Besides the evil energy, he would also get waves of forging materials which he would then store inside the Inner World in preparation for the forging of the remaining 32 magical treasures.
Together with all that, the virtuous lamia was constantly getting stronger with the small amounts of power of virtue he would get every time.
The yield was definitely satisfying.
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue sat behind Song Shuhang with one hand supporting her chin.
She said, “Seven Daoist… cough, Tyrannical Song, you’re simply committing a robbery here.”
When Kindness heard this, she immediately retorted, “Senior Fairy, you’ve misunderstood. Senior Tyrannical Song is not robbing us, these materials were all voluntarily sent by us. We are very grateful to Senior Tyrannical Song for staying at the Beast Realm and curing people of this evil energy.”
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue pinched her chin.
She fell into contemplation—compared to Song Shuhang, wasn’t her Heavy Metal Sect’s way of robbing quite lacking?
No, that wasn’t it; the effect they wanted to achieve was to cause the customer’s heart to rend. If the customers were grateful, wouldn’t they have less fun during the forging process?
While they were talking, another batch of 10 patients was admitted into the room.
After the last patient entered, Kindness exited the room.
Afterward, the virtuous lamia released her light of virtue and enveloped the entire room to prevent any eyes from peering into the room.
Song Shuhang was just about to release the lotus tentacles as usual, but suddenly, the virtuous lamia beside him moved a little and silently alerted him.
It seemed that one of the patients who entered the room carried a curse with them.
Song Shuhang glanced over the 10 patients… and eventually locked on to a beast cultivator.
It was a Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator, and the aura of his evil energy of the Netherworld was different from that of the other nine patients.
While Song Shuhang was staring at him, the Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator also slowly opened his eyes.
Its crimson eyes stared back at Song Shuhang’s gaze.
“Oh, I was discovered. I’m really not good at disguises.” The Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator smiled shyly and climbed out of bed. “Greetings, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song.”
The evil energy of the Netherworld in his body made contact with the light of virtue and was constantly purified. However, more and more evil energy kept flowing out of his body.
Has this guy completely fallen? No, it isn’t that he has fallen… This guy was originally a creature of the Netherworld.
The Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator said, “My name is Tiger Soul, and I am the one responsible for this operation in the Beast Realm. Of course, Tiger Soul is just my code name as my real name must be kept secret. I came here mainly to meet you, the person who has the ability to remove evil energy from others. I came to see what you look like and how you remove the evil energy.”
While speaking, the Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator suddenly attacked an ‘infected person’ beside him.
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue, who had long been ready for such a thing, instantly made her move. Her long golden hair flew up, turned into a golden spear, and pierced the Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator.
The Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator wasn’t able to dodge it, and was penetrated by the golden spear.
He lowered his head and stared at the golden spear that pierced his body as black blood poured out from the wound.
“Aaahhh, oh no, I’m going to die.” The Tiger-Patterned Beast Cultivator screamed like an amateur actor, performing the most grandiose acting that he could achieve.
After screaming, his body exploded with a bang.
The evil and filthy evil energy of the Netherworld flew in all directions and flooded the entire room.
This evil energy also carried the aura of a curse.
Song Shuhang immediately transferred Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue, the virtuous fat whale, and the white-haired man to the Inner World.
At the same time, he also prepared to return to the Inner World.
But right then, over ten liquefied tentacles extended out from the ‘Defiant Whale Warrior Glove’ on his right fist and shot towards all corners of the room; each tentacle was condensed from holy light.
This holy light was different from ordinary holy light, with not only having a bright and holy aspect to it, but also having a cold and deathly one.
When the strange holy light reached the evil energy of the Netherworld, it was as if a small flame had made contact with oil.
The evil energy of the Netherworld that had spread throughout the room burst into flames and transformed into raging holy light. The ‘curse’ contained in the evil energy was quietly absorbed as well.
[Bzzz~ No. Song Shuhang, can you hear my voice? I am the loyal watchtiger of my master, and I have come to convey an important message from my master: immediately return to the main world, otherwise your death will be inevitable. That is all, I’m ending the call.] A voice sounded in Song Shuhang’s mind.
