Chapter 1498: Don’t let go when you die!

“W-we’re in the sky!” the blonde girl said in a panic.

She was clearly still squatting under the shop owner’s cash register just now, but then she suddenly appeared high in the sky in the blink of an eye. Looking downward, she could see the houses that were now really tiny while feeling the slightly strong and cold wind hitting her body.

As expected, the shop owner possessed a strong power like instant teleportation!

In addition to a monster-like body and powerful combat power, he also had superpowers like instant teleportation. The shop owner had such great capabilities.

And more importantly, she saw the shop stepping on the air as if he was standing on the ground.

It wasn’t floating in the air, but stepping on it like it was solid ground.

What kind of superpower was this?

Was the shop owner a god?

The blonde girl suddenly shuddered.

Just now, she had been too focused on the shop owner’s instant teleportation and stepping on air, and she had almost forgotten about her fear of heights.

As soon as she found there being 300 hundred meters of nothing under her feet, she felt dizzy, nauseous, and weak in her legs.

The blonde girl stammered, “S-shop owner, I’m not doing so well… I’m afraid of heights.”

At this time, the majestic shop owner softly said, “When in the air, don’t talk about such terrible things like fear of heights.”

“???” The blonde girl.

The shop owner seriously said, “Relax. Don’t worry, I won’t laugh at you, because I’m also a little afraid of heights. We’re quite similar in this regard.”

“…” The blonde girl.

The shop owner who originally appeared mature and reliable to her suddenly felt a little unreliable.

Song Shuhang whispered, “It’s coming.”

In the sky, the pressure of the heavenly tribulation continued to gather.

“What’s coming?” The blonde girl looked confused.

Song Shuhang stretched out his hand, and the Tyrant Cuttlefish’s twin blades appeared.

This time, he dared not step on the two blades, and instead used only one of them to perform the saber flying technique, while having the other follow him closely.

Song Shuhang took the blonde girl, and quickly flew away from Western Orchid Island, moving towards the sea.

Fortunately, it was an island. As long as he flew away, he would quickly be able to reach the sea.

At this moment, the blonde girl said, “Shop owner, I feel like there’s something very dangerous that’s about to descend on us.”

Her instinct told her that danger was coming.

Song Shuhang said, “It’s not us, it’s you.”

“???” The blonde girl.

Song Shuhang said, “Whoops, I forgot to bring Senior White’s statue. I should have brought him out just now so that we might have better luck.”

The blonde girl felt so tired. The shop owner’s way of thinking was too jumpy; he would change the topic so randomly. In her opinion, it was very difficult to communicate with the shop owner.

After Song Shuhang flew a certain distance away with the blonde girl, he finally found a place to stay—a small island.

Song Shuhang landed and placed the blonde girl on the island.

At this time, the cloud in the air had begun to condense.

The dark tribulation cloud shrouded the blonde girl’s head, continuously increasing in size. It looked like the tribulation lightning would soon descend.

Song Shuhang rubbed his temples, feeling a little distressed.

If it had been five months ago, back when Su Clan’s Sixteen had transcended her tribulation, this heavenly tribulation wouldn’t have been different from hers. At that time, as long as a disciple didn’t lose confidence in transcending their heavenly tribulation, their senior or master could still make a move and scatter away the heavenly tribulation, thereby giving the disciple more time to prepare.

But now, the change in the Wielder of the Heaven’s Will was imminent, and the number of changes in the heavenly tribulation was increasing as well.

Taking the monster bird Little Cai’s heavenly tribulation as an example, even after her heavenly tribulation had been sealed and scattered, it quickly regathered. It was no longer possible to stop a heavenly tribulation by breaking it up.

Moreover, if Song Shuhang intervened in the blonde girl’s tribulation, the power of the tribulation would likely increase to Fifth Stage or above. It might even directly increase to one around the level of the Eighth Stage due to Song Shuhang’s carrying a Sage Seal.

Interfering with others’ heavenly tribulation had always been one of the most death-seeking actions in the cultivation world.

Song Shuhang thought of the monster tree Miruru.

Song Shuhang hadn’t even directly intervened in the monster tree’s tribulation, only transferring some energy to Miruru through the Sage Seal.

At that time, while receiving his energy, Miruru, the exhausted monster tree, stood up and went back to bravely fight against the heavenly tribulation, believing that victory was in sight.

But in the end…

The power of the tribulation multiplied, and Miruru ultimately failed to transcend its tribulation.

In the end, all that was left of it was the branch that had been stamped by the Tyrannical Song Sage Seal along with a tree sapling.

The sapling was currently in the Song Shuhang’s Inner World. Even after being watered with the living spring and provided with various precious fertilizers, whether Miruru could be reborn or not was still unknown.

Similarly, when the puppet maiden had secretly assisted Song Shuhang and the others in the Heavenly Tribulation Realm when the heavenly tribulation nuclear bomb came down, the power of the nuclear bomb had increased to near the Ninth Stage.

“I can’t directly break it up, and I can’t directly intervene in the heavenly tribulation, either, so what do I do?” Song Shuhang sighed.

The blonde girl looked up at the tribulation clouds in the sky. “Shop owner, am I going to die?”

She could feel that the dark clouds and the lightning contained in them were aiming for her.

Why could lightning lock onto a single person?

It was simply like a weapon.

This kind of completely unscientific thing was something she had gradually become able to accept after getting in touch with the strange shop owner.

The current level of science could not provide an explanation for everything.

That was because the current level of science was still lacking.

The science that people mastered currently might only be considered at the kindergarten level in the greater picture. It would naturally be impossible to explain problems and events at the doctoral level while having knowledge only at the kindergarten level.

Song Shuhang said, “This is a heavenly tribulation, it’s something that’s aimed at ‘cultivators’. If you’re able to get through this, you will genuinely possess strength at the Third Stage.”

Heavenly tribulation? This was a term that sounded very mysterious.

But currently, the blonde girl didn’t have the time to understand it better.

“How do I get through it?” the blonde girl asked in confusion.

Song Shuhang replied, “Beat it.”

The blonde girl looked up at the tribulation clouds. How was she supposed to beat it? Although more than 40% of her body had been modified, she hadn’t been equipped with weapons yet.

From beginning to end, she was not an armed mechanically modified person.

The blonde girl asked, “Is there anything else I could do?”

Despite being faced with the heavenly tribulation, she was still able to remain calm. The electronic chip in her body allowed her to be emotionally stable at all times.

Song Shuhang said, “Yes… take out the core reactor in your body.”

The reason for the sudden improvement of the blonde girl’s realm was this ‘core reactor’.

In actuality, the blonde girl’s realm had not ‘increased’. Instead, it was merely the energy of the core reactor that had been improved and unleashed.

In the ‘core reactor’, there was a source of powerful energy. This was what Song Shuhang had discovered through the invisible man number three’s E: Drive.

After being installed into the body of the blonde girl, the energy of the core reactor had seemingly sealed itself, with only a very small portion leaking out.

Previously, when performing the ‘memory-erasing technique’, Song Shuhang’s mental energy became akin to a catalyst, activating the core reactor, and allowing the energy contained inside it to leak at a greater rate.

The advancement of the blonde girl’s realm was not due to absorbing Song Shuhang’s mental energy. The mental energy that had been absorbed was minuscule.

In other words, it wasn’t so much that the blonde girl was the one transcending a tribulation; it would be better to look at this as the ‘core reactor’ in her body transcending a tribulation.

The blonde girl was merely acting as a host, and became involved in the heavenly tribulation.

If she had a way to take out the ‘core reactor’ in her body, the heavenly tribulation would target it instead and ignore the blonde girl.

“But I can’t take it out.” The blonde girl smiled bitterly, and said, “When I escaped, I unceasingly looked for ways to take it out. However, it takes a large mobile phone to take it out. Moreover, I’ve already been connected with it for too long.”

Song Shuhang suddenly said, “At this time, it would be nice if Senior Phoenix Slayer was here.”

Young Master Phoenix Slayer’s talent should be able to transform the blonde girl’s body into a liquid.

Perhaps at that time, the ‘core reactor’ could be separated from her body.

Never mind… Over 40% of the blonde girl’s body had already been mechanized. He was afraid that that part of her body wouldn’t be able to be liquefied as well.

And without the support of the mechanized part of her body, once the blonde girl recovered her human form, it might be over for her.

“Shop owner, can you take it out?” The blonde girl looked at Song Shuhang and her eyes suddenly shone. “Shop owner, you can do everything. You take it out… You can have the core reactor. How does that sound?”

She didn’t want the core reactor at all.

Moreover, the shop owner seemed to have a hobby of collecting all kinds of strange things—after all, he had bought something like the ‘energy core’ and the like from the big guy before.

“I’m not from the Department of Science, nor from the Department of Medicine. I don’t know how to do a surgery.” Song Shuhang rubbed his eyebrows.

Suddenly, Song Shuhang’s heart thumped.

Song Shuhang asked, “Do you trust me?”

“I do, of course I trust you, shop owner,” the blonde girl asserted while patting her chest.

“Trust me completely?” Song Shuhang stepped forward and reached out into the Inner World.

In the eyes of the blonde girl, the shop owner’s right hand plunged into the void and disappeared.

The image of the shop owner became indiscernible.

The blonde girl nodded, and said, “I trust the shop owner completely.”

Song Shuhang’s hand stretched out from the Inner World.

In his hand, there was now a golden coin.

He handed the coin to the blonde girl. “Grab it and don’t let go.”

Resurrection gold coins could be used to resurrect practitioners below the Sixth Stage after they died—provided that their soul wasn’t destroyed before they resurrected.

Of the practitioners who died under the heavenly tribulation, 99.9999% of them were completely destroyed, and there was no chance of resurrection or rebirth.

The heavenly tribulation was simply that much of a frightening existence.

The blonde girl grabbed the gold coin firmly, and said, “I won’t let it go even if I die!”

Song Shuhang whispered, “Yes, don’t let go of it when you die.”

In the next moment, Song Shuhang’s right arm became like a knife, piercing the blonde girl’s abdomen.

The fragile body of the blonde girl couldn’t resist Song Shuhang’s arm at all.

“Aaah~” The blonde girl’s eyes widened, and she felt extreme pain.
