Soft Feather asked, “Has Fairy Skylark possessed him?”
Song Shuhang shook his head, and said, “No, my consciousness is still very much sober and undisturbed.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “Other than the changes in your hair color, hair length, and eyebrows, is there anything that feels different?”
Song Shuhang replied, “No, I don’t feel any different. Actually, I’m sensing a huge amount of vitality coming from my left eye.”
This sensation of vitality made his left eye feel very comfortable.
Soft Feather said, “Senior Song, didn’t Skylark’s eye absorb a lot of deathly aura? Where did the vitality come from?”
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “Similar to the Sage’s eye, are there any magical techniques recorded inside this eye?”
“I don’t sense any magical techniques… Anyway, this way of testing things just won’t do. I’m going to use my own methods to understand this eye.” Song Shuhang took a deep breath, and took off the Swordsman Wooden Ox’s glove of passion on his left hand. At the same time, he readied the [Whale Body Transformation Spell] of the ‘Defiant Whale Warrior Glove’ on his right hand.
Then, he stretched out his left hand, and placed it on his left eye.
The secret appraisal technique was activated.
When performing the secret appraisal technique in the past, golden runes would flow out of his eyes and land on the object to be identified.
But this time, the runes came out of his right eye, turned around, and landed on his left eyeball.
The golden clock appeared, and the hour hand on it moved counterclockwise.
The appraisal was successful.
After the appraisal, over a dozen wounds appeared on Song Shuhang’s left hand.
The cost of this appraisal wasn’t too great.
He then activated the [Whale Body Transformation Spell], causing healing light to wrap around his left hand, which allowed the wounds on it to quickly recover.
The results of the appraisal appeared in his mind.
[Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark’s left eye: It is a part of Skylark. Due to the influence of a ‘special power’, this eye has a mysterious effect. When it stores enough ‘death qi’, it will turn it into vitality. This is the best material for creating ‘resurrection magical treasures’, and is currently bound to Profound Sage Tyrannical Song.]
Song Shuhang said aloud, “This eye was influenced by a special power, and can turn death qi into vitality. It can be used to make resurrection magical treasures. It is now bound to me…”
Senior White said, “A material for making resurrection artifacts? I see. However, it isn’t easy to make such things. When we find a way to get out of this place, I’ll introduce you to a fellow daoist who can make one. However, you have to be ready to pay a relatively high price.”
Soft Feather said, “But when can we even get out of this place?”
Song Shuhang said, “We have to find a way out of here. I absolutely won’t let myself just stay here for 10,000 years.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen pondered, and said, “You said that it’s influenced by a special power, but what kind of power is it? Did it gain this effect after merging with you?”
Song Shuhang said, “I don’t think it’s related to me. I’m only at the Fourth Stage, so I shouldn’t have the ability to change other people’s organs.”
While he was speaking, an additional result from the appraisal appeared in his mind.
[Due to the influence of the ‘special power’, whenever Skylark’s eye leaves its original owner, a giant turtle of disaster will be drawn over. It will come to swallow Skylark’s eye, please do pay attention to your safety.]
Song Shuhang was stunned, and said, “What is a giant turtle of disaster?”
Senior White’s clone responded, ”What?”
Song Shuhang replied, “After Skylark’s eye leaves its original owner, it will draw over a giant turtle of disaster. It will come to swallow Skylark’s eye, so one must pay attention to their safety.”
Soft Feather chuckled, and said, “The giant turtle of disaster? It sounds quite powerful. However… we were confined in this small gray room by the Wielder of the Will, so even if there was such a thing, it would be impossible for it to break into here, right?”
Song Shuhang nodded, and said, “You do have a point.”
Senior White’s clone said, ”The giant turtle of disaster will swallow Skylark’s eye when it leaves her body? It almost sounds like a special arrangement to deal with Skylark if something were to happen to her.”
Should Skylark lose any part of her body, the giant turtle of disaster would come forth to deal with the missing part.
Su Clan’s Sixteen thought about it, and said, “To avoid any accidents, Shuhang, you should switch your eye back to the original one.”
“That makes sense,” Song Shuhang said. “Senior White, please take out my eye again.”
Senior White stretched out his hand towards Song Shuhang’s eye socket.
But while he was doing so, a huge mouth suddenly appeared. This mouth was bigger than the immortal boat, and tried to take a bite at Song Shuhang.
Senior White’s clone stretched out his hand, and pushed Song Shuhang away.
At the same time, Meteor Sword rushed out towards Soft Feather and Su Clan’s Sixteen, bringing them to safety.
Finally, Senior White’s figure turned around handsomely, and did a low sweep to hit the edge of that mouth.
The huge mouth was deformed.
Despite that, it was still able to crush Senior White’s immortal boat into pieces.
Meteor Sword brought Soft Feather and Sixteen a few hundred meters away, and Song Shuhang had also been pushed away by over a hundred meters by Senior White.
“Woo~” The giant mouth let out a pitiful cry.
“This guy’s skin is so hard.” Senior White’s clone stood up and looked at the immortal boat that had been crushed into pieces. “That was my favorite immortal boat!”
Song Shuhang said, “What is this thing? There are other existences in this world of death?”
With Skylark’s eye, he could see through the thick fog.
He stared where the huge mouth was.
There, a giant turtle could be seen floating in mid-air. On its back was a metal deck, while it also had a tail that was very long and appeared to be as flexible as a snake.
There were ancient runes on it, and each rune signified disaster and death. Still, a vast amount of vitality surged in the crystal core located on the tip of the giant turtle’s tail.
“It’s the giant turtle of disaster.” Su Clan’s Sixteen and Soft Feather could now clearly see the appearance of the giant turtle.
Their vision was originally hindered by the fog, but when the giant turtle appeared, the surrounding ‘fog’ was all drawn over to the runes on the turtle’s back, forming a vacuum in a short time.
Soon after, Sixteen and Soft Feather could see the shape of the giant turtle.
Soft Feather said, “Was this giant turtle really able to enter the small black room of the Wielder of the Will?”
Senior White’s clone hovered in the air. “Hahahaha, this is good news for us.”
Since this giant turtle could enter, it meant that the small black room wasn’t insurmountable. There was a way to break out of it.
“Roar~” The giant turtle shook its head and spat out the debris from the immortal boat in its mouth. Then, its gaze fell on Song Shuhang once again.
“Dong, dong, dong~ Wuuuuu~”
Two strange sounds came from the giant turtle’s body.
The ‘dong dong dong’ sound was like that of a drum being beat, while the ‘wuuuuu’ sound was somewhat like that of a motorcycle being throttled.
Am I hearing things?
As Song Shuhang was in thought, the giant turtle had already charged at him. Its big feet moved, and it covered a distance of several hundred meters despite barely moving at all.
It rushed towards Song Shuhang and opened its mouth wide to bite at him.
Song Shuhang stepped on a lotus flower, squatted, and then jumped onto the giant turtle’s back.
Su Clan’s Sixteen shouted, “Shuhang, what it wants is Skylark’s eye, quickly pluck it out!”
Song Shuhang himself already knew this, and also wanted to pluck out his left eyeball, but he was currently too busy avoiding getting killed. Where was he supposed to get the time to take out the eyeball?
“I’ll stall it for a while. You pluck out your eyeball.” Senior White’s clone moved and instantaneously appeared on top of the giant turtle.
However, the giant turtle was simply too huge, and he didn’t have a suitable weapon to deal with it.
However, Senior White’s clone suddenly remembered something.
He willed, and a huge tree of virtue condensed behind him.
After some time, the tree of virtue grew bigger, and it was soon covered in virtuous bayberries.
Senior White grabbed the tree of virtue, and swung it around.
The giant turtle couldn’t avoid it, and so it was struck at its head.
“Wuuu~” It let out a strange-sounding scream as its head was deformed into a ‘U’ shape.
Song Shuhang took this opportunity to grab his left eyeball, cruelly pulling it out.
Without Senior White’s anesthesia, the feeling of plucking out his eyeball was extremely painful.
Once he had Skylark’s eye in his hand, Song Shuhang took a deep breath and threw it far away from the turtle.
Senior White’s clone anxiously said, “Don’t throw it away! If you lose it, the giant turtle is going to eat it up. That’s something we found, why should we let this turtle eat it without getting anything out of it?”
While he said that, he sent out a ‘disposable flying sword’ towards Skylark’s eye.
When Song Shuhang threw out the eye, the giant turtle had already forcibly pulled its previously bent head back into proper shape before turning to chase the eye.
However, Senior White’s flying sword moved faster than the turtle’s head, and so it was able to scoop up Skylark’s eye.
“Wuuu~” the giant turtle of disaster yelled. It turned and impulsively rushed towards where the disposable flying sword was.
For it, taking back Skylark’s eye was the most important thing.
Song Shuhang took this opportunity to jump off the turtle shell.
Senior White shouted, “Don’t come down, we might be able to use this giant turtle to leave this small black room.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
Senior White flew up and grabbed Song Shuhang. At the same time, he ordered Meteor Sword to rush after the turtle.
He then said, “We have to keep up with this giant turtle. We can’t let it get away from us.”
The disposable flying sword hurried forward with Skylark’s eye, while the giant turtle of disaster rampaged right behind it.
Senior White’s clone took Song Shuhang and the others with him as he tailed the giant turtle.
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “What realm has this giant turtle reached?”
Senior White’s clone said, “I can’t discern its realm, but it doesn’t look like a living creature.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior White, how long are we going to fly behind this giant turtle?”
The ‘disposable flying sword’ leading the way was being controlled by Senior White. What was he planning?
“Remember what I said before? The space we’re in is akin to a ‘loop’. Here, the end point is no different from the starting point. I want to see if this giant turtle can break the limitations of this space,” Senior White’s clone said. “We’ve reached the end point! Now, time to see if we can bear witness to a miracle.”
