Chapter 1504 A magnificent sight… or
This time’s Golden Core Composition seemed like one that he could finish in one go.
After he had reached the ‘finishing touch’ portion, he didn’t feel any sense of having to stop.
In addition, the four golden cores that he had in his body had now become an endless source of spiritual energy supporting him. With his current amount of spiritual energy, he could even fully endure completing an entire complicated Golden Core Composition in one go. He even felt that he had so much spiritual energy right now that he could go on and do another one right after.
If he had a fifth golden core at this moment, perhaps he would have directly finished two Golden Core Compositions in one sitting. My state is really good. This virtuous diamond core is very likely going to be my first golden core that gets past the finishing touch stage! Song Shuhang had this premonition in his heart.
His finger firmly pointed toward the Sage’s slightly sunken eyes.
After finishing the eyes, this virtuous diamond core could become a (Lustrous Golden Core), and the next step was for him to overcome the heavenly tribulation of the Sixth Stage and become a True Monarch.
However, he hadn’t gotten to finish a Golden Core Composition on his whale core yet. With that being the case, if the virtuous diamond core were to transcend the tribulation first, would there be any changes?
At that time, would he be able to transcend the heavenly tribulation?
When the time came for him to transcend his heavenly tribulation, would there be a tribulation for every core? Should he wait until he made every single one of his cores a lustrous golden core before transcending?
Song Shuhang’s finger smoothly touched the Sage’s left eye.
He had touched upon it very smoothly, and he still had the feeling that he could continue.
Moreover, the spiritual energy in his body was still extremely abundant. One more eye… No, even one more eyeball wouldn’t be a problem.
Everything was going smoothly.
Song Shuhang lifted his finger and went on to the Sage’s right eye. But then, at this moment, the head of the Sage on the virtuous diamond core slightly moved to the side, avoiding Song Shuhang’s final stroke.
“???” Song Shuhang.
What happened just now?
Was it just me, or did the Sage on my virtuous diamond core move just now?
Song Shuhang was stunned. He stretched out his hand again, and moved it towards the right eye of the Sage.
On the virtuous diamond core, the Sage’s head tilted, avoiding Song Shuhang’s final stroke.
“!!!” Song Shuhang.
F*ck, he really dodged.
He hadn’t seen it incorrectly.
He was a cultivator now, and with this, he had great eyesight. Just now, he had clearly seen the “Sage” in the painting move and avoid his fingers in a cool manner.
The composition on the virtuous diamond core could move?
Song Shuhang said, “I’m the one who drew this Golden Core Composition, right? If it’s a composition, it isn’t supposed to be able to move, right”
Since it was a picture, how in the world did it move!
Song Shuhang said, “The final stroke, my inspiration is simply bursting now, I don’t feel like stopping, and I’m even full of spiritual energy. Let me touch it!” At this moment, the Sage in the picture moved again.
The scroll in his hand moved slightly, and some patterns appeared out of thin air behind him-it was the picture of apes, and each ape was holding a scholarly scripture.
The mouths of these apes opened and closed, and although there was no sound, Song Shuhang seemed to hear a string of ‘666’ ringing in his ears.
It turned out that even the apes behind the Sage would chant 666.
“…” Song Shuhang.
I don’t seem to remember painting apes behind the Sage. There was no point in time from when I started to paint this composition until now when I painted these apes, right?
So how did these apes appear?
Immediately afterward, the Sage in the picture opened his mouth again, and crystal lotus flowers appeared, surrounding him.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Apes appeared, and now even lotus flowers appeared. What next?
At this time, the Sage’s originally half-closed left eye opened forcefully.
A strange light appeared in his eye.
Ah… this familiar, weird light.
This was the light of love.
As he watched the Sage’s left eye open, Song Shuhang’s ears seemed to hear the Sage’s majestic voice—what is filial piety? What is love?
Mister Tyrannical Song felt a sense of anxiety.
Why is this happening?!
The virtuous diamond core compositioninside the (The Once Absolute Voice of the Sage of Ancient Times], the strange light from the left eye of the Sage enveloped the entire Golden Core Composition.
The light of love spread to the whole universe.
Whether it was a human or a monster; whether it was a spirit, a plant, or even a stone; whether it was flying in the sky, walking on the ground, or swimming in the sea; whether it was old or young; whether it was in the main world or the Netherworld; whether it was those with status or those without.
Under this ‘light of love’, all beings were equal. Within the (The Once Absolute Voice of the Sage of Ancient Times], the bellies of the listeners swelled silently like balloons.
This process looked exactly like it was a moving picture. The process of the listeners’ belly swelling was like a domino effect.
It started from the circle of listeners that were closest to the Sage, and spread in all directions circle after circle. One after the other, bellies of listeners would start swelling, and then the ones behind them would follow.
It was as if they were flower buds blooming.
Flowers blooming one after another.
It was a magnificent sight… or not!
After a while, all of the listeners in the Golden Core Composition were kneeling on the ground while clutching their stomachs.
The painting was silent, but the sound of sorrow seemed to directly reach Song Shuhang’s ear, reaching even his soul, and resounding unceasingly for quite some time.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Why did Golden Core Composition change from a still picture to a moving one?
What were the principles behind this?
Why can my Golden Core Composition move, why?!
My cultivation time has been short, but don’t you dare lie to me.
In this world of cultivation, there has never been an occurrence where a Golden Core Composition started moving, right?
This made sense from the perspective of neither cultivation nor science.
This no longer belonged under the meaning of picture.
(The Once Absolute Voice of the Sage of Ancient Times)?
That no longer fitted this composition.
The name of this Golden Core Composition should be changed to (Tremble beneath me! Accept the love of the Sage!).
When everyone became pregnant, the composition seemed to have paused.
It stopped moving as if it had returned to being a proper picture.
Song Shuhang felt that his consciousness was going to collapse.
His heart was so stifled and tired. It felt like it had truly been pierced right then and there; he even felt like he had truly learned the meaning of a heart being pierced by 10,000 arrows. “The content of this Golden Core Composition must absolutely not be seen or known by anyone else!” Song Shuhang silently vowed to himself.
While he was in thought, the composition on the virtuous diamond core had reverted back to how the ‘The Once Absolute Voice of the Sage of Ancient Times’ originally was, as if time had been reversed.
In the picture, the Sage was motionless.
There were no apes chanting behind him, nor any lotus flowers coming out from his mouth.
The Sage’s eyes were back to being slightly sunken.
The left eye could already be seen in its eye socket, while the right eye was still not there. “…” Song Shuhang. Should he continue?
He could feel that he was still full of spiritual energy, and that the stroke of inspiration for the Golden Core Composition had not ended. In theory, he could still complete this composition.
Song Shuhang said, “Continue, why not continue? Anyway, my heart has already been completely rent, what else do I have to fear?”
Then, he stretched out his hand and moved it to the Sage’s right eye once more—the left eye was already there, wouldn’t it be very asymmetrical if the right eye wasn’t present? That would simply be horrible!
Just as he stretched out his hand, the Sage in the composition moved again.
He tilted his head and escaped Song Shuhang’s fingers.
Immediately afterward, he tilted his head again and again, as if provoking Song Shuhang.
“…” Song Shuhang.
After tilting his head three times in a row, the entire ‘The Once Absolute Voice of the Sage of Ancient Times’ began to move again.
The same things happened again.
First, the apes that chanted 666 appeared, and then came the Lotus Blossoming Tongue.
After that, there was the ‘Impregnating Gaze’.
In the end, similar to a domino effect, the people who were listening quickly became pregnant.
“…” Song Shuhang.
After this segment of actions finished, it was as if time flowed back once again, and the composition returned to how it originally was.
In the composition, the Sage’s eyes were slightly sunken once again, and his left eye was complete, but his right eye wasn’t-it was something that could probably drive someone with OCD to death.
The Sage was just sitting there, and Song Shuhang felt that he was constantly provoking him-go ahead, try and do a stroke on my eye, I will reward you try to do so, I will conduct another ‘Impregnating Gaze’ animation.
Song Shuhang gave up. He already knew in his heart that it might not be the time for him to complete the finishing touch.
Compared to when he had done the previous two Golden Core Composition, he had already improved a lot.
In the first composition, (The Forever Impregnable Holy City], Song Shuhang didn’t know what it was that it lacked even until now.
In the second composition, [The World-Ending Holy Sword], he vaguely knew that what was missing was the final boss, but he had no idea how to use a ‘one last stroke’ to complete the composition.
And for this third composition, (The Once Absolute Voice of the Sage of Ancient Times], it was very clear that what it was lacking was the right eye of the Sage.
Song Shuhang muttered, “It’s good to make progress, this means that I’m not stagnating.” He was comforting himself, using the excuse of ‘progress’ to soothe his rent heart.
Song Shuhang said, “I am a man with a heart as tough as steel. I’ve lived the life on an onion for several hundred years, lived the lonely life of a ‘Cheng Lin fragment’ wherein I was studied for several hundred years, and experienced dreamlands time and again. I’m not someone who would have his heart rent so easily.”
After saying that, his consciousness firmly withdrew from the ‘Golden Core Space’.
Tuesday, October 15th, 2019.
It was the beginning of a new day.
Early in the morning, Western Orchid Island was covered with clouds, and it felt like wind and rain were coming.
Song Shuhang exited the Inner World.
The door of the restaurant was closed, and it had not opened yet.
The puppet maiden and Chu Chu were both missing
The two pastry chefs in the kitchen weren’t present, either.
Song Shuhang wondered, “Strange, where did they go?”
They hadn’t returned to the Inner World, either.
Could it be that something happened outside?
While he was in thought, spatial fluctuations appeared in the air.
Then, a sorry figure drilled out.
Song Shuhang asked in surprise, “Senior White?”
It was Senior White’s clone who had traversed space.
At this time, half of his figure was lignified, and sprouts could be seen shooting out.
Song Shuhang asked, “What happened?”
Senior White’s clone muttered, “I accidentally activated a formation while breaking into the secret realm. It’s strange, this time I didn’t have good luck.”
After that, he handed a phone-like object to Song Shuhang. “I’ll leave this to you for safekeeping. Then, Shuhang… If fate allows it, I’ll see you in the future.”
After he finished saying that, this clone of Senior White broke apart with a snap.  Slang for ‘amazing.’
