He had been readying himself to speak in a domineering manner, but as soon as he opened his mouth, his tone became gentle, and his tyrannical aura receded.
In his sea of qi dantian, the whale core swam quickly.
After being given nine dragon patterns by Senior White Two, the whale core has become much more active.
When Song Shuhang spoke out the first line of the ❮Demon Seed in One’s Heart❯, the first dragon pattern on the whale core lit up.
The first dragon pattern—the ‘Impregnable Holy City’—was a dragon pattern created by Song Shuhang.
After the dragon pattern brightened, a projection of the ‘Impregnable Holy City’ appeared behind Song Shuhang.
It was a majestic holy city.
Is that a fortress? A city wall? The practitioners of the universe, and the demons of the Netherworld stared in confusion.
A speech phenomenon? Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’s speech is incredible this time. He immediately caused a phenomenon to appear as soon as he opened his mouth!
Could the speech this time be greater than the last?
Song Shuhang sighed in his heart. Although he didn’t know what was happening with his whale core, he continued the speech.
Now that his state was no longer a domineering one, he used the manner of a scholar to slowly explain the ❮Demon Seed in One’s Heart❯.
While in thought, Song Shuhang delivered his speech steadily.
In his body, the second dragon pattern on the whale core lit up.
The nine Ancient Holy Apes were holding Scholarly Scriptures and standing neatly behind Song Shuhang. The Holy Ape in the middle was huge, while there were four smaller Holy Apes at each of its sides.
On the whale core, the third dragon pattern lit up.
As it did, the virtuous lamia grew to about five meters tall, and covered Song Shuhang and the Holy Apes.
On the whale core, the fourth dragon pattern lit up.
A projection of the ‘Holy Sword of the End’ appeared. The giant 200-meter-long sword inserted itself in the ground beside the ‘Impregnable Holy City’.
There are so many phenomena appearing one after another, but why does the content of this speech seem to be lacking compared to the last? There were several veteran Profound Sages and Tribulation Transcenders with their brows furrowed as they listened.
If they aren’t speech phenomena, then could Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar’s speech be resonating with his own cultivation techniques or magical treasures, producing the phenomena?
The ❮Demon Seed in One’s Heart❯ speech continued.
The depth of the first half of the speech was average. In fact, the most classic part of this lecture was in the last chapter ‘Demonic Seed’, which was a masterful stroke to end the speech.
In Song Shuhang’s body, the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eight dragon patterns lit up one after another.
Projections of the Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber, a huge eye, a swaying lotus flower, and a fat whale appeared one after another behind Song Shuhang.
Finally, there was the ninth dragon pattern, which slowly lit up.
The ninth dragon pattern did not project anything.
Its effect was directly reflected on Song Shuhang’s body.
The practitioners of the universe and the demons of the Netherworld Realm only witnessed a flash reflect in their eyes.
Then, they saw ‘their self’ sitting within the screen of the ‘Demon Sage Speech’ delivering a speech.
What’s going on? Why did Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar, who was in the middle of his speech, assume my appearance? Some of the practitioners and demons with low accomplishments were confused.
I understand. While Profound Sage Tyrannical Song was conducting his speech, he was also showing us an extremely profound set of magical techniques. These techniques are probably related to the content of his speech. This is a hidden easter egg! Some witty practitioners and demons realized.
Even the existences who were veterans among Profound Sage, as well as Tribulation Transcenders, frowned and began to study the screen carefully.
Those with low strength could not see the uniqueness of the magical technique. However, after people’s strength reached a certain level, they would instinctively feel that there was something to it when seeing the effects of the phenomena.
There was nothing wrong with their senses—after all, this was something arranged by Senior White Two himself! It contained methods that surpassed those of Immortals.
A Tribulation Transcender murmured, “Is he showing me my ‘true self’? This isn’t something that a Profound Sage should be able to do. What exactly is going on?”
He stared at Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar, who was on the screen, and tried to undo the influence of the ‘true self reflection’. He cast dozens of magical techniques in succession to no effect—he couldn’t influence the ‘true self’ cast by the Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar.
What a profound magical technique. This Profound Sage Tyrannical Song is truly worthy of his reputation. His speech is as amazing as always. It was worth listening to it just for the chance of seeing this ‘self reflecting’ magical technique.
Inside the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer said, “Is this Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar really a member of our group? His methods are really fierce.”
Fairy Lychee replied, “Everyone has memories related to him, so he definitely should be a part of our group.”
Yellow Mountain is very tired and wants to retire: “This speech is marvelous. The early stage contained a simple but wondrous explanation. Everyone should keep these contents firmly in their mind. I have a hunch that the latter parts of the speech will be connected to them. Don’t focus all of your energy on the phenomena being displayed by Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar.”
Fairy Dongfang Six said, “This speech is very appetizing to me. Although it is all about one’s will, I keep on getting the feeling that it contains something about the true intent of the demonic path.” She was the holy maiden of a demonic cult, and she was now even a candidate to become its leader.
Frice Reckless Mad Saber said, “I am more worried about something else right now.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator calmly said, “Don’t worry, I have contacted Medicine Master for you. After you get severely injured by Seven, Medicine Master will pick you up. VIP beds are worth it.”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber said, “No, that isn’t what I’m worried about… What I am worried about is whether or not I have offended this junior, ‘Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’. If I have, is he going to take revenge for it? Also, who was the one that was dear to me that I forgot about?”
While everyone was talking about ‘Profound Sage Tyrannical Song’, Song Shuhang, who was in the ‘Demon Sage Speech’ state, suddenly stopped.
It wasn’t that he forgot the contents of his ‘manuscript’.
Instead, it was because the ‘whale core’ in his body was experiencing changes, and it had directly affected his consciousness.
Therefore, Song Shuhang’s speech was interrupted.
In his dantian, the whale core used something akin to ‘inner sight’ and showed Song Shuhang a ‘golden core’ within it.
It was a proper golden core, one that would determine one’s path.
It was round, and there was a series of dragon patterns on it.
1, 2, 3… 7, 8… 9?!
Song Shuhang counted the dragon patterns on the golden core in the whale core.
There were a total of nine dragon patterns.
These dragon patterns weren’t like the ones that Senior White Two added after his whale core had formed, but natural dragon patterns instead.
Among the nine dragon patterns, eight of the dragon patterns were relatively small.
The size of the ninth dragon pattern was thicker. When Song Shuhang looked at this dragon pattern, he naturally understood its essence—this was the dragon pattern that his ghost spirit Ye Si had strengthened for him.
Song Shuhang doubtfully said, “What’s this? A core within a core? A core within a whale? A golden whale core?”
More importantly, when was this golden core formed?
Was it before the whale core formed? Or after?
What is my aptitude, then?
Since this golden core appeared only at this time, it is likely that it has just condensed and formed.
That is to say, my aptitude should be about the same as Senior White Two’s as it is a golden core with no dragon patterns.
Although the nine-patterned golden core is gorgeous, if you think about it carefully, it is too mainstream. Having no patterns on one’s golden core is better and cooler!
Hm, an 18-patterned golden core sounds quite nice too.
Heavens, wait a minute, I’m in the middle of a Demon Sage Speech! Shiet!
Song Shuhang withdrew his consciousness from his ‘sea of qi dantian’.
If he failed the Demon Sage Speech, he would have to suffer an entire year of pain. He wasn’t a masochist, so he didn’t want to suffer painful torture every day.
Meanwhile, in the universe and the Netherworld Realm.
“What happened to Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar? Why did he suddenly stop?”
“Please continue the speech, Profound Sage Tyrannical Song. I am still waiting for the following content!”
“Although this speech feels a bit ordinary, my instinct tells me that there’s good stuff coming. Sage Monarch Tyrannical Song, come on, keep talking!”
“Is Demon Sage Tyrannical Scholar buying time?”
A Netherworld demon shouted, “The time of the Demon Sage Speech is limited. If you don’t speak any further, don’t blame us for giving you a bad review.”
Song Shuhang took a deep breath and prepared to continue to teach the ❮Demon Seed in One’s Heart❯.
However, after his speech had been interrupted, his state was now completely off.
This manuscript of the ❮Demon Seed in One’s Heart❯ was in his mind—every word of it—and he even understood its content.
But when he spoke, it felt as if he were stiffly saying the text, and he was completely out of pace.
It wasn’t going to work.
If he followed the script, even if he got to the final chapter, it would not resonate with the Netherworld Realm and the main world.
If he continued like this, the speech would fail.
Should I change the manuscript?
Should I ask Senior White Two for help?
While Song Shuhang was in thought, a projection appeared beside him.
It was Fairy Creation.
“Song~ Dududu~ Draft~” Fairy Creation stretched out her hand beside Song Shuhang and waved it.
A ‘manuscript’ that only she and Song Shuhang could see appeared in front of them.
“Fairy Creation, what script is this?” Song Shuhang asked in his mind.
There isn’t any point in continuing the ❮Demon Seed in One’s Heart❯.
Should I try out Fairy Creation’s manuscript?
Fairy Creation opened the manuscript.
Song Shuhang paused his speech, and his eyes fell on the text.
“What is filial piety?” When he said these words, he suddenly felt a shock.
Behind him, the sixth dragon pattern of the whale core shone brightly.
Then, Song Shuhang exuded the aura of a great scholar of the scholarly faction.
“What is love?” Song Shuhang was attracted by the ‘manuscript’, and he couldn’t help but continue reading.
What was filial piety?
What was love?
Coupled with the great scholarly aura coming from Profound Sage Tyrannical Song at this time, these two questions directly went to people’s hearts.
Not good… this is a scholarly manuscript!
