Sage Monarch Three Weeks, who was dressed like a scholar, was placed on the ice, and was temporarily left in Song Shuhang Two’s care.
Under the guidance of the White Dragon, Song Shuhang began to transform the area into a place where Profound Sages had fought.
The attacks of Eighth Stage Profound Sages were very strong. That was why when practitioners were ascending to the Eighth Stage, they would be brought into the Heavenly Tribulation Realm for their heavenly tribulation. If two Profound Sages were to fight to the death, they could destroy a city with every single one of their blows. After a battle, some smaller countries could end up in ruins.
However, what Song Shuhang wanted to set up was merely a battlefield where two Profound Sages sparred, so it didn’t need to be that exaggerated.
“Use the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique and launch an Eighth Stage-level attack over there. I will take it from there.” The White Dragon randomly pointed to a place.
Song Shuhang said, “No problem.”
The place the White Dragon had casually pointed at was the same place where Shuhang and Senior White had landed after escaping from the Netherworld Realm.
What a coincidence!
Song Shuhang didn’t dwell on it too much, and went to borrow Scarlet Heaven Sword from the virtuous lamia.
Song Shuhang said, “Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, can you help me slash out an attack?”
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “If it weren’t for my old self being unable to breathe fresh air for such a long time, I would absolutely not have accompanied you in such foolish acts.”
It was the divine weapon of an Immortal. In martial arts novels, it would be a treasure akin to the Heavenly Sword or Dragon Saber. Once it entered the scene, it would set off a rain of blood!
But when it was with Song Shuhang, it had no idea what it was supposed to do.
And now, it had to accompany Song Shuhang in creating a fake battleground. It had truly lost its face.
“Haha.” Song Shuhang smiled embarrassedly.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “I’m ready. Now, let me see if your understanding of the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique has improved along with your realm.”
Song Shuhang said, “I guarantee that I won’t disappoint you, Senior.” He flipped his right wrist and activated the saber intent of the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique. Song Shuhang’s understanding of the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique had really gone a step further. The experience he had gained over this period of time had all been integrated into this swing. Heaven-scorching flames burned domineeringly, and a sharp saber intent rose into the sky.
Around Song Shuhang, layers of ice continuously melted and transformed into mist that rose upward.
“Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique,” Song Shuhang let out a low roar and swung Scarlet Heaven Sword.
The ice sheet burst open, and a bottomless pit appeared.
This ice was very thick, and it felt like the entire planet beneath their feet was completely made of ice.
However, there was virtually nothing that the overbearing heaven burning flame could not burn through. The layers of ice seemed to have turned into fuel as the flames burned even more fiercely.
On this cold planet, these flames gave people a feeling of warmth in their hearts.
Suddenly, Scarlet Heaven Sword called out, (Wait, control the flame. There is something underneath.]
Song Shuhang smiled bitterly. “How do I control it?”
This Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique had been slashed out with the help of Scarlet Heaven Sword, so how could Song Shuhang possibly have the strength to control it? It was already a miracle that he was able to slash out such a strong attack.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Forget it, I’ll do it myself.”
Under Scarlet Heaven Sword’s will, those blazing flames dispersed and disappeared.
Song Shuhang and the White Dragon looked around, and saw an ancient temple-like building within the deep ice pit.
The White Dragon said, “It’s a temple.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Why is this temple buried under the ice?”
The White Dragon said, “It’s probably because of a disaster. Maybe… a country of practitioners was buried under this layer of ice.”
She sensed some spiritual energy from this ancient temple.
As an Immortal, she knew a lot. When she traveled through the universe, she had witnessed the rise of many strange civilizations, as well as their destruction.
While they were speaking, a light suddenly shone in the ancient temple.
It was a blue light, and it felt cold. Song Shuhang said, “I feel like I’m a character at the beginning of a horror movie.”
The White Dragon asked, “Do you want to go down and take a look?”
Song Shuhang nodded.
With the White Dragon and Scarlet Heaven Sword there to protect him, there weren’t many places in the main world that could pose a danger to him.
Hmm… I wonder if it’s just a coincidence. This is the exact position where Senior White and I landed when we returned from the Netherworld Realm.
With Senior White’s luck, if he randomly teleports himself somewhere, it’s likely that there’s a treasure at that location.
Could this ancient temple contain some treasure that Senior White was fated to have?
Song Shuhang said, “Clone, you look after Sage Monarch Three Weeks. I’ll go down and take a look.”
Song Shuhang Two responded, “No problem, just be careful.”
Song Shuhang held Scarlet Heaven Sword as he moved forward. The virtuous lamia and the White Dragon followed behind him. He walked in the air and landed on the edge of the ancient temple beneath the ice.
After ascending to the Fifth Stage, Song Shuhang could walk in the air without having to use a flying sword. This greatly relieved his fear of heights…
However, whenever he walked in the air, his lotus talent was still passively activated with every one of his steps. With every step he took, a black lotus would appear to support his feet.
It was honestly quite flashy.
When he landed on the edge of the ancient temple, Song Shuhang only felt a sense of comfort all over. The chill brought by the ice had disappeared.
The White Dragon said, “There is a barrier protecting this ancient temple.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “I don’t sense any life aura nearby. This ancient temple should be abandoned. The blue light that has suddenly lit up was probably a kind of sensory device.” Song Shuhang asked, “In that case, should we go straight in?”
He approached the ancient temple and looked up.
In general, temple-like buildings such as these would always have things like plaques, right?
There was indeed a plaque above the entrance of the ancient temple. However, the plaque appeared to have been taken away.
The temple gate was dilapidated, with only half of it remaining.
The ancient temple wasn’t big, but it gave people the illusion of being ‘infinitely large’, and there was also a calm zen aura inside it.
If a Buddhist monk were to come here, they would be able to gain a lot of benefits from understanding this kind of zen. It was a pity that Song Shuhang wasn’t a monk.
The White Dragon said, “There isn’t a defensive formation. We can directly enter.”
Song Shuhang nodded and stepped into the temple gate.
The inside of the temple was dusty. It should have already been abandoned for a long time before it ended up frozen.
The temple was empty, and even the location where the ‘Buddha’ was supposed to be located was empty.
There was only one blue light burning lightly.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “This blue light is a magic treasure, but it has no other functions besides being used for lighting.” Song Shuhang took a step forward and reached out to touch the blue light. He saw that the blue lamp was also full of dust, and he wanted to wipe the dust away.
When his finger touched the blue light, a Buddhist sound rang out.
This was a language that Song Shuhang had never heard before. It sounded peaceful and gentle, just as if it were being whispered into his ear. However, it seemed to be coming from very far away. As this sound rang out, the dust in the entire ancient temple was swept away.
Song Shuhang asked, “A cleaning technique?”
The White Dragon explained, “No, this is the effect of the Buddhist sound. The lustrous body keeps no dust nor dirt.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Did the sound come from the blue lamp?”
If so, this blue lamp was quite useful.
After taking it home and installing it, he could use it as a lamp, as well as an automatic cleaner. Vacuum cleaners could not compare to it at all!
Apart from this blue lantern, there was nothing else in the entire temple.
The people who left the ancient temple had taken everything away—this included even the Buddha statues, and it was only the blue lantern that was left for the future generations.
Song Shuhang regretfully said, “I thought that since this was a place where Senior White had moved us to, we would be able to dig out some treasures. I didn’t think that there wouldn’t be anything here…”
Scarlet Heaven Sword laughed. “An ancient lamp that can shine and remove dust can be regarded as a treasure. It is much more practical than buying a sweeping robot for several thousand renminbi. The consumption of this lamp is very low, so it can easily be paired with nearly any formation that could gather spiritual energy.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Should I bring Senior White over?
Maybe there are hidden treasures in this ancient temple, the kind that could only be found if Senior White were to come himself…
As such, Song Shuhang transferred his consciousness into the Inner World, and prepared to contact Senior White, who was inside the Palace of Virtue.
As soon as his consciousness entered the Inner World, he discovered that the little Senior White was lying on the ground, sleeping soundly.
However, since Senior White was asleep, it wasn’t a good idea to bring him into this ancient temple.
Song Shuhang transferred Senior White to a room inside the Palace of Virtue so that he could have a good rest.
But for some reason, when he transferred Senior White’s body, Senior White was transferred out of the Inner World.
Senior White appeared into the air three meters above Song Shuhang, and he began falling downward. “F*ck!” Song Shuhang was shocked.
Senior White merely tripping on the ground could blast out huge pits with a radius of several hundred meters… and that was when he was still a Venerable. After ascending to the Eighth Stage, the pits that Senior White could blast out were definitely bigger.
And now, Senior White fell from the air.
A fall from this height would be equivalent to the explosion of a nuclear bomb, right?
Song Shuhang threw Scarlet Heaven Sword aside, and leaped forward using every single muscle in his body, reaching out to catch Senior White.
Scarlet Heaven Sword landed on the ground with a clang
“…” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Divine weapons also have dignity. Believe it or not, they can also get angry! Song Shuhang jumped, caught Senior White, and landed.
“Phew~ Safe.” Song Shuhang had a relieved expression on his face.
“No, you are dead,” Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said. “I am going to poke a hole in you, one that goes straight through your body. Do you want to choose where it will be?”
Song Shuhang turned his head, and saw that Scarlet Heaven Sword had fallen to the ground.
“Sorry, Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword!”
“It’s too late, you damn idiot. Divine weapons have dignity too, take a slash from me!”
“Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, I’m going to die if you do that. Also, my Cross of Resurrection has already been used up.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword angrily said, “You damn fool, even if you had the cross, I’d be too lazy to poke a hole in you!”
The White Dragon quietly floated to the side, a smile evident in her eyes.
The scene just now reminded her of the past.
“Speaking of which…” Song Shuhang held Senior White, and said, “Perhaps I should have let Senior White fall down just now. Maybe after he smashed out a hole, a treasure underneath the temple would be revealed?”
At this moment, under the temple.
I hid so well. Yet, I was discovered? a creature with big fists thought anxiously.
