Chapter 1353 The nine immortal bones condensing

The demonized Skylark softly said, “Boy, what relationship do you have with Skylark? Why are you teleported over every time that she transcends a tribulation?”

Song Shuhang: “…”

“Forget it, you don’t need to answer. Anyway… You’re going to die soon,” the demonized Skylark said. “This is the Demonic Tribulation Realm, and the Eighth Stage demonic tribulation is about to descend. With your weak Fourth Stage body and with no Skylark to protect you, your death is certain.”

Song Shuhang said, “The Demonic Tribulation Realm?”

Senior Skylark didn’t go to transcend the normal tribulation, and ran off to the Demonic Tribulation Realm instead?


In the air, a bolt of purple demonic lightning fell. A direct hit from an Eighth Stage demonic tribulation would definitely burn Song Shuhang to ashes.

The demonic tribulation descended and enveloped Song Shuhang and Skylark.

This time, Song Shuhang was being held in place by Skylark’s hand, rendering him incapable of escaping.

No, I can’t let little friend Song Shuhang die! At this moment, Skylark’s consciousness showed signs of recovery.

She forcibly controlled her body, stood in front of Song Shuhang, and spread her arms to endure the power of the demonic tribulation.

The demonic tribulation exploded on her body, resulting in most of the power being absorbed by her.

Only a small part of the aftermath reached Song Shuhang.

Similar to the power of the heavenly tribulation of the Eighth Stage, the demonic tribulation lightning also had the effect of tempering a cultivator’s physique, provided that they were immune to the ‘evil energy of the Netherworld’.

“There’s no point in struggling,” the liquid metal ball said. “Even if you block the power of the demonic tribulation for him, what good will that do? The evil energy of the Netherworld will still be infused into his body, and he will fall and become a demon.”

“That would be better than dying,” Skylark said with determination. She gritted her teeth, and said, “Little friend Song, I will never let you die in front of me.”

At this time, Song Shuhang’s face was without expression, and a black arc of lightning circled his body. The lightning bolting around his body was like a snake.

The intense pain caused him to feel as if his body were being torn apart.

The ❮Steel Hands Technique❯, the ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯, and the ❮Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique❯ all activated at the same time.

The [Tyrant King Expert’s Shield] expanded on its own, but as it was in a sealed state, it could not completely block the demonic tribulation.

Skylark trembled, and said, “Stay away from me. Use whatever you can to get away from me as quickly as possible. Just like during the previous tribulation, you have to get as far away from me as you can.”

The liquid metal ball said, “Fool~ This is the Demonic Tribulation Realm. This is my territory. I can control the intensity of the demonic tribulation. Even if he escapes, it doesn’t matter how far he is, as long as I will it, the demonic tribulation will still lock onto him. There’s no need to struggle, just die or fall and become a demon.”

Song Shuhang’s entire body trembled. He took advantage of the interval between the waves of the demonic tribulation and rolled as far away as he could from Skylark. Although he wasn’t that fast, his will was firm.

However, just as the liquid metal ball had said, even if Song Shuhang increased his distance from Skylark, the demonic tribulation still locked onto him.


The second wave of the demonic tribulation descended, most of which rushed at Skylark, while a small portion rushed at Song Shuhang.

“Condense, Star of Cold Ice.” Skylark stretched her hand towards Song Shuhang.

A huge piece of ice formed above Song Shuhang’s head, blocking the tribulation lightning for him.

However, after performing this magical technique, Skylark had exhausted a good deal of her power.

The liquid metal ball had taken over her body once again.

In the next moment, it calmly placed multiple seals on her body, firmly suppressing Skylark’s consciousness.

The liquid metal ball said, “At least until this tribulation ends, you won’t be allowed to cause any more trouble.”

Skylark’s consciousness could only watch everything that was taking place in the Demonic Tribulation Realm as a spectator.

Little friend Song, I’ve done everything I could, Skylark thought to herself.

She did everything she could as a ‘senior’. The rest was up to Song Shuhang’s own fate.

I’ve already done my best…

Time and again, Song Shuhang continued to roll with everything he had in him.

Finally, he rolled to a distance of 100 meters away from ‘Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark’.

This distance… should be enough.

[Senior White, whether I can live or die this time is up to you,] Song Shuhang said in his mind.

Just now, when the first wave of Demon Tribulation descended, Senior White Two sensed that he had been drawn into the ‘Demonic Tribulation Realm’.

Afterward, Senior White Two had sent him a message, asking him to roll away to a position that was at least 100 meters away from ‘Skylark’. At this distance, he could keep the liquid metal ball occupied and give Song Shuhang something to save his life.

In the sky, the ice condensed by Skylark was getting smaller and smaller, and it was soon going to melt. As long as the ice melted, the demonic tribulation would directly fall on Song Shuhang, turning him into ash and completely obliterating his soul.

At this moment, a slender palm appeared and silently touched Song Shuhang’s back.

Afterward, a circular eight trigrams formation emerged and protected Song Shuhang.

The formation began to rotate, and carved on it were ancient characters.

[Simplified Fixed Health Undying State].

What a familiar name! The last time that Song Shuhang and the others experienced this blessing from ‘Senior White Two’ was when they tested the heavenly tribulation atomic bombs and hydrogen bombs in the Demonic Tribulation Realm.

With this blessing, while he was in the Netherworld Realm, Song Shuhang would be in an ‘undying’ state.

The liquid metal ball was the ruler of the Netherworld, but Senior White Two was also a ruler of the Netherworld!

Moreover, in terms of seniority, Senior White Two was above the liquid metal ball.

For Song Shuhang, the Eighth Stage Profound Sage Tribulation was much more terrifying than the Eighth Stage demonic tribulation… because in the main world, he didn’t have a big shot like Senior White Two supporting him.

Song Shuhang asked, [Senior White, can’t you directly bring me out of the Demonic Tribulation Realm?]

Senior White Two replied, [I can’t do that. If I do, this fat ball will know that you have a relationship with me. When that happens, it’s going to use everything it has to destroy you.]

At this time, the liquid metal ball said, “Watch, Skylark. Keep your eyes open and watch this young man be destroyed.”

Eliminating this young man would make Skylark feeling ‘guilty’. As long as negative emotions arose, the liquid metal ball could manipulate Skylark more easily and obliterate her will.


The demonic tribulation hit Song Shuhang head-on.

“Aaaah~” Song Shuhang let out a terrifying scream.

This was the first time that he had experienced the true power of the Eighth Stage tribulation.

During his previous experiences with heavenly tribulations of the Eighth Stage, he had the help of big shots like the virtuous lamia, the puppet maiden, Senior White, Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark, and others who blocked most of the power of the tribulation for him. He himself had only ever taken on a very small portion of the remaining energy.

But this time, he had to withstand the full power of the Eighth Stage demonic tribulation with his own body.

My body is going to shatter!

The power of the demonic tribulation exploded in his body, and this power was intent on destroying not only his physical body, but also his soul.

Song Shuhang was scorched black by the explosion, and had only a single breath left in him. If it were described in gaming terms, he only had 1 HP left.

Since the [Simplified Fixed Health Undying State] was active, Song Shuhang would remain alive with this single HP.

“Boom! Boom! Boom!!!”

After a wave of explosions from the Eighth Stage demonic tribulation, a huge hole had been blown out in the ground where Song Shuhang was located.

“Dead.” The liquid metal ball faintly announced Song Shuhang’s death.

In the hole, Song Shuhang stretched out his arms and raised his head tremblingly. He looked at ‘Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark’, and exhaled a mouthful of black smoke.

This black smoke that he spat out was the air in his body that had been carbonized by the power of the tribulation.

“Still not dead?” The liquid metal ball controlled Skylark’s body and raised her eyebrows.

Not only was he not dead, but he was also rather lively.

After the tribulation ceased, Song Shuhang’s injuries quickly recovered.

Behind him, another Ancient Holy Ape projection condensed, showing that Song Shuhang’s ❮Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique❯ had risen to a higher level.

At the same time, the ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯ did not show weakness, and had improved as well.

All the cultivation techniques in the universe could be traced to a single source. When they reached a certain level, they would produce a similar effect.

After reaching the master level, the ‘Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha’ began to condense a projection behind Song Shuhang.

However, the projection wasn’t that of an ape, but rather a book.

Once one book formed, two more appeared.

Behind Song Shuhang, one big and two small Ancient Holy Ape projections stood side by side. In the hands of these holy apes, dazzling books with scholarly text appeared.

The Holy Ape phantoms now exuded scholarly qualities.

After the two top body-tempering cultivation techniques advanced at the same time, they gave back some power to Song Shuhang. In addition, the pill that Skylark had fed Song Shuhang earlier began to exert its effects.

In Song Shuhang’s body, the fourth immortal bone condensed, and it took root in Song Shuhang’s fat whale illusory core, raising his cultivation by a small realm once more.

“Ah, I don’t want it to be this fast!” Song Shuhang hammered the ground vigorously.

I’ve finally gathered all the materials for the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Combined Magical Treasure, and have given them to Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue….

Moreover, I brought her a team of forging masters to help her forge magical treasures, figuring out a way to send them into the Time City so that they could forge magical treasures with 12 times the efficiency.

I have worked so hard, and the completion of my Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Combined Magical Treasure is in sight! But now, my realm is starting to skyrocket again…

I’m unwilling! I refuse to accept this!

In the distance, the liquid metal ball gritted its teeth, and said, “Die!”

It felt that its pride had been damaged; never would it have thought that this little cultivator wouldn’t die to an Eighth Stage demonic tribulation.

The liquid metal ball mobilized the power of the demonic tribulation, but this time, Song Shuhang and Skylark had to bear it at the ratio of 1:1.


Half of the demonic tribulation fell on Skylark, while the other half fell on Song Shuhang.

Song Shuhang screamed once again.

An entire day passed like this, and Skylark’s tribulation was still descending.

“Tsk, still not dead.” The liquid metal ball looked at Song Shuhang carefully.

Every time Song Shuhang endured the tribulation, he would be left with a single breath, struggling at death’s door.

The liquid metal ball said, “Interesting, really interesting.”

Once Skylark entered the heavenly tribulation state, this little cultivator would also be brought in.

Skylark had a bone of eternity, while this little cultivator also seemed to be immortal.

There must be a great connection between these two…

The liquid metal ball announced to Song Shuhang, “You are to be mine as well.”

Song Shuhang looked up, and two streams of blood flowed down from his eyes. “It’s over. I’ve condensed nine immortal bones…”
