That’s right, what auxiliary professions do I have?
Shuhang knew neither how to manufacture talismans nor how to create formations. Even when it came to illusory formations and the Heavenly Master’s Techniques, he had only learned a bit of each.
Compared to the seniors in the Nine Provinces Number One Group, Song Shuhang’s specialty was probably dying the most.
However, dying a lot wasn’t an auxiliary profession
This really was miserable.
After thinking about it for a long time, Song Shuhang finally thought of something that he had some proficiency in. “I’ve learned how to refine pills. It was by relying on this ability of mine that I was able to achieve my current success!”
“Teacher, you know how to refine pills?” Chu Chu looked at Song Shuhang enviously.
Chu Chu was born in a small family, so she knew to appreciate the value of medicinal pills. In the past, when she was still in the Chu Family, she hated that she couldn’t split a pill into two before taking it.
The Chu Family had managed to cultivate some pill refining masters of their own, but their success rate was so low that they made others have no choice but to groan in displeasure… If one were to calculate the expenses, it was actually more expensive for them to purchase medicinal ingredients and equipment for their own pill refinement department than to simply purchase finished products from outside.
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “Mm-hm, a little bit.”
Song Shuhang quickly changed the subject.
If he continued to dwell on this topic, he would eventually have to mention that he had only refined body-tempering liquid, and that he had even used an induction cooker to do so.
Song Shuhang said, “Anyway, immersing yourself solely in bitter cultivation isn’t the most effective method of cultivation. By touching upon the path of talismans, formations, pill refining, and immortal dishes, one would actually be able to increase the speed of their cultivation.”
Although he had only been cultivating for less than five months, his knowledge could compare to that of a lot of seniors.
This kind of theory and knowledge could be acquired by simply staying in the Nine Provinces Number One Group for a long time, listening in on the conversations, and subsequently learning from them.
Cute little newbies who mixed in with their seniors all year round would unknowingly grasp a vast amount of knowledge.
Chu Chu nodded. “Then I will listen to Teacher and try out the immortal chef profession. In fact, I feel that I’m rather talented in cooking.”
Song Shuhang said, “Moreover, you also have talent in the sword. With this immortal chef secret technique, your talent in the sword won’t be wasted.”
Chu Chu asked, “However, immortal chefs need a lot of ingredients to experiment with. Do we have any ingredients with us?”
“Don’t worry. I’ll make sure that you won’t be lacking in ingredients,” Song Shuhang assured.
His Inner World was very big, and most of the land was currently idle and unused.
If Chu Chu wanted to become an immortal chef, he could consider buying a batch of “edible” spirit beasts and other strange beasts, and store them in the Inner World.
He could also easily transplant a batch of medicinal ingredients and spirit plants.
The ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯, coupled with the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯, was the greatest cultivation technique when it came to taming spirit beasts.
When taming spirit beasts, he could also receive some energy from the spirit beasts, resulting in the speed at which he practiced the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ increasing.
When the time came, both Chu Chu and Little Cai could minor in the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯, which would allow them to tame spirit beasts and improve their strength at the same time.
After the edible spirit beasts matured, they could be used by Chu Chu to practice the path of immortal chefs.
This method could be said to be very efficient with several things being achieved in one fell swoop.
Right, my Inner World also has the [Ancient Heavenly City’s Canteen No. 111]. If this canteen can be unsealed, I can save on kitchen utensils as well.
Chu Chu could directly practice her cooking in a kitchen of the Heavenly City.
In addition, her cooking could also be supplemented with the Inner World’s spring water, perfecting the process further.
This plan was feasible.
The Inner World should be used wisely and efficiently.
On the edge of a beach on Heavenly Field Island.
Song Shuhang, the puppet maiden, and Chu Chu sat side by side, watching the tide ebb and flow.
“I wonder how long the interval is between the various calamities on Heavenly Field Island. Fairy maiden, will your body be able to bear it?” Song Shuhang asked.
The puppet maiden said, “If it’s just a calamity at the Seventh Stage, then I will be able to sustain it.”
Song Shuhang let out a sigh.
The last wave of calamity had Eighth Stage nuclear weapons… the next wave would definitely be even more powerful.
Song Shuhang softly said, “And Senior White still isn’t done over on his side…”
[Song Shuhang, are you still on the island?] At this time, Senior White’s voice rang in Song Shuhang’s mind.
Song Shuhang didn’t know if it was Senior White or Senior White Two’s voice, as their voices sounded the same in his mind.
Song Shuhang replied, [Yes, we are still on the beach of Heavenly Field Island.]
Senior White’s voice continued, [Rise into the sky, Heavenly Field Island is about to return to the main world.]
Song Shuhang asked, [Rise into the sky? Do you mean fly into the sky? Has the problem with Heavenly Field Island been resolved?]
Senior White’s voice replied, [Yes, fly into the sky lest you get involved in it any further. There isn’t anything interesting here in Heavenly Field Island…]
Nothing interesting? Song Shuhang was puzzled—what was Senior White or Senior White Two doing?
While they were talking, the entire Heavenly Field Island experienced changes.
The island, which was originally gray, seemed to have been dyed with various colors. It was finally regaining its colors.
The residents of Heavenly Field Island appeared one by one.
They, too, regained their colors.
At the same time, all the soul fragments of Island Master Tian Tiankong that were scattered throughout the island gathered to form his projection once more.
“Is it starting again?” The eyes of Island Master Tian Tiankong were full of fatigue.
Even though his spiritual and mental energy would be brought back to full after he recovered each time, the repeated calamities did not do good on his mental state, causing him to be mentally exhausted.
Song Shuhang said, “Senior Tian Tiankong, it’s over.”
“?” Island Master Tian Tiankong.
Song Shuhang reminded, “Heavenly Field Island is leaving this space. Your physical body might have been destroyed. Once you return to the main world, you might need to activate your resurrection formation.”
After saying that, he flew into the air together with the puppet maiden and Chu Chu.
Both he and the puppet maiden could walk in the air, while Chu Chu had to be carried by the puppet maiden.
Island Master Tian Tiankong slowly said, “Is it over?”
At this time, a beam of light fell from the sky, covering Island Master Tian Tiankong’s body.
The beam of light refracted, projecting a picture scroll.
That picture scroll showed Heavenly Field Island and its surrounding sea area—it was Island Master Tian Tiankong’s Golden Core Composition.
Island Master Tian Tiankong’s Golden Core Composition was very complex, and it could be placed among the top Golden Core Compositions.
In order to complete this Golden Core Composition, he’d stagnated in the Fifth Stage for a long time…
The more complex and magnificent a Golden Core Composition was, the stronger one would be upon reaching the Sixth Stage.
Island Master Tian Tiankong’s Golden Core Composition had originally only missed the finishing touch.
But now, his Golden Core Composition suddenly changed.
Over the sky above the Golden Core Composition that showed ‘Heavenly Field Island’, a calamity appeared. It was similar to the calamities that had been faced by Heavenly Field Island previously.
The defenses of Heavenly Field Island in the Golden Core Composition were shown to be broken.
Island Master Tian Tiankong’s complexion changed.
Golden Core Compositions were said to be immutable and left no room for regret.
It was unheard of that a Golden Core Composition could experience changes.
“How could this happen, why has my Golden Core Composition changed?” Island Master Tian Tiankong felt rather uneasy in his heart.
In the distance, Song Shuhang comforted him, “Senior Tian Tiankong, don’t worry. Your Golden Core Composition experiencing some changes isn’t something to be afraid of. Moreover, yours only had some pictures added to it, it’s not a big deal.”
Island Master Tian Tiankong repeated, “It’s not a big deal?”
A golden core left no room for regret, and it was something related to his future. One had to know that one misstep in cultivation could cause a lot of problems, so he couldn’t be sloppy.
Song Shuhang comforted, “Don’t worry, it’s really okay. How about this? When we return to the main world, I will take Senior Tian Tiankong to take a look at my dynamic Golden Core Composition, as well as my animated Golden Core Composition. After comparing yours with mine, you will feel more at ease.”
Island Master Tian Tiankong looked dumbfounded.
But soon, he could no longer pay attention to Song Shuhang.
He had entered a state of enlightenment.
His consciousness sank into his dantian. Then, he raised his head and saw his golden core, as well as the Golden Core Composition that was on it.
He had clearly entered a soul-like state. However, his golden core and Golden Core Composition were also present.
He stretched out his hand and tapped lightly at the center of his Golden Core Composition.
This touch resulted in a faint light.
The faint light formed a sharp contrast with the terrifying calamity above his head.
However, the face of Island Master Tian Tiankong showed a satisfied look.
The final stroke of his Golden Core Composition was now in place.
Island Master Tian Tiankong said, “This touch represents a ‘new life’, so to speak. Even under such a terrifying calamity, Heavenly Field Island will never be destroyed.”
In the next moment, he and Heavenly Field Island disappeared.
Song Shuhang, the puppet maiden, and Chu Chu floated in mid-air, and the world under their feet turned into an ocean of grayness.
Song Shuhang softly said, “I hope Senior Tian Tiankong can return to the main world safely.”
“Stop setting flags up for others,” Scarlet Heaven Sword said. Scarlet Heaven Sword always felt that Song Shuhang’s mouth had been a bit too loose recently, with him planting flags one after the other.
After Heavenly Field Island disappeared, the beam of light that had previously shrouded Island Master Tian Tiankong’s body did not vanish, and instead remained right where it was.
Just now, Senior Tian Tiankong seemed to be under the care of the pillar of light, which seemingly allowed him to complete Golden Core Composition in one go.
Could this beam of light be the reward after the trial?
If I enter the beam of light, will I be able to complete the final touches for my second, third, and fourth cores’ Golden Core Compositions?
Song Shuhang was a little curious.
Encouraged by his strong curiosity, he stepped on a black lotus and approached the beam of light.
He didn’t directly enter the beam of light, but first tried to stretch his hand out and use the secret appraisal technique on the light.
Song Shuhang’s finger slightly touched the beam of light.
In the next moment, he was swallowed by the light.
With this, he also entered a state of enlightenment.
“Is the inspiration for the finishing touch for my Golden Core Compositions coming?” He grew excited.
However, the expected inspiration for the finishing touch did not come.
Instead, a strange formula appeared in his mind.
[Royal blood demon core + blood bone + 10 blood demon pearls + Song Shuhang = Super Song Shuhang]
“…” Song Shuhang.
What the hell was Super Song Shuhang?
Nevertheless, he was able to roughly understand one thing.
The blood demon core would undergo some changes if the blood bone and 10 blood demon pearls were added to it.
Should he test it right away?
And so, he took the core, blood bone, and blood demon pearls out of his spatial bracelet…
