Recently, Song Shuhang had been wanting to learn a powerful move, and this was the right opportunity!
Despite being a dignified five-star hotel— emh, five-core Spiritual Emperor, his strongest fist technique was only at the Second Stage, his strongest movement technique was at the Second Stage as well, and even the strongest saber technique which he was so proud of was just at the Third Stage.
As for the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique, he only comprehended a tiny portion of it, and this move was a saber technique at the Immortal Realm-level. If Song Shuhang wanted to use it without Senior Scarlet Sword’s assistance, only the heavens knew how long it would take before he would be able to do so.
So at present, he needed a powerful move that he could use to determine the outcome of a battle.
Speaking of absolute moves, Song Shuhang immediately thought of Su’s Senior Seven’s Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry River.
Song Shuhang silently thought to himself, Wait, I seem to have recalled it wrong. Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry River is the lesser version of Senior Seven’s technique made for Sixteen. The original version of Senior Seven’s technique should be the Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea.
Anyway, it was domineering nonetheless.
If this move was coupled with his current five-core power, it would become a powerful bulldozer.
If he were to face the Blood God’s Evil Saber Formation, which was designed by Young Master Hai, at this time, the power of his five cores plus the Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea could directly reduce the other party to pieces.
Now that I’ve managed to enter the dreamland related to Senior Seven’s life, does that mean that I’m going to get the opportunity to come in contact with the ‘Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea’?
Perhaps I really might have the chance to learn this move!
Song Shuhang felt excited.
It was the dreamland of his dreams.
The young Su Xian remained in the saber meditation state. He had his saber on his knees and his eyes closed as he meditated.
“She is the most perfect woman. She should have long hair… No, short hair is better.” Su Xian was still muttering softly while meditating.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Is he customizing his own saber woman?
Can one really turn one’s saber into a woman by relying on ‘love’?
How exactly does ‘love’ cause a saber to turn into a fairy maiden?
Is love used to produce electricity, and then is that electricity used to transform the treasured saber?
Just now, seeing Ancestor Juhao’s huge saber turn into a girl greatly impacted Shuhang’s three views.
However, if one thought about it carefully… The ancestor’s saber woman, was it really the saber that had turned into a fairy maiden, or was it a fairy maiden that had turned into a saber?
There were all kinds of strange creatures in the universe. There were even some creatures like the invisible saber insects that were sabers and spirit beasts. As such, who was to say that there couldn’t be a race that could turn into weapons?
However, if a saber can really become a woman, then that’s quite an exciting thought to dwell on. Song Shuhang had such a thought in his heart.
“She looks like she is about 25 years old. She is tall and looks like a gentle older sister. When she speaks, she should have a gentle and crisp voice.” The teenager Su Xian was still busy customizing his own saber woman.
This boy is an older-sister-con? Perhaps even an aunt-con?
How great would it be if he could ‘fast forward’ as much as he wanted every time he entered a dreamland?
Song Shuhang was entirely uninterested in how the boy developed his image of a perfect woman in his mind.
Every man had their own perfect woman in their heart. However, the perfect woman in the hearts of others was not necessarily perfect for him.
There were too many types of perfect fairy maidens.
Song Shuhang was currently most interested in whether he could learn the Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea.
If he really learned this move, the next time he got the chance to meet Young Master Hai, he would definitely let him have a taste of the power of his saber.
Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea, one move to put an end to Young Master Hai!
Aiyah! There’s still a problem. Song Shuhang suddenly thought of something.
As the Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea was a technique unique to the Spirit River Su Clan, it wasn’t supposed to be imparted to outsiders.
If he learned it, he wouldn’t be able to use it wherever and whenever he wanted. What if the Spirit River Su Clan mistakenly believed that he stole their technique, and they hunted him down?
In other words, even if he was fortunate enough to master the ‘Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea’ through the dreamland, he could only use it in secret.
It was either that or become a member of the Su Family.
“…” Song Shuhang.
His heart suddenly felt stifled.
Now came the question—if the young Su Xian were to really start to practice the Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea, should he learn it? Or should he avoid learning it?
It was such a dilemma.
But soon, Song Shuhang found that he was thinking too much.
It was truly too naive for him to have a dilemma on whether to learn the Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea.
This was because the young Su Xian did not practice this saber technique at all.
In addition to meditating daily, Su Xian learned a lot of other things as well.
After all, Ancestor Juhao had a deep understanding of the saber path.
What he began to teach young Su Xian was not a saber technique, but a piece of knowledge called the ❮Three Thousand Sabers Scripture❯.
This was his experience in the saber path that he gathered through his lifelong study of the saber path.
In the dreamland, the sun rose and set, and time flew by.
Every morning, Su Xian would follow Ancestor Juhao and climb to the top of a mountain, absorbing the spiritual energy between heaven and earth. Then, there was the indispensable saber meditation, perfecting his image of his saber woman.
Following that, Ancestor Juhao would impart him with insights on the saber path.
Song Shuhang became an observer, following Su Xian every day, studying with him, and making progress together.
In life, there were certain things that simply had to be freeloaded.
Before he embarked on the path of cultivation, Song Shuhang liked to freeload books in bookstores… After he started practicing, he would freeload Young Master Phoenix Slayer’s CPU, follow Senior White and freeload his luck, and occasionally freeload others’ heavenly tribulations—there were times when, unfortunately, he would freeload the bad luck as well. And now, he was freeloading off of another’s lectures.
Song “Almighty Freeloader” Shuhang.
Following Ancestor Juhao’s explanation of the ❮Three Thousand Sabers Scripture❯, Song Shuhang understanding of saber techniques continuously increased.
There were a lot of things in his mind that he previously had not understood that he now gained clarity on.
Song Shuhang’s talent in saber techniques was exceptional; several of the seniors in the Nine Provinces Number One Group had confirmed this. Even if he was merely observing by the side, he could quickly grasp the content of the ancestor’s lecture, and even draw inferences from what he got.
It might be because all his weapon talent went to the saber, and the way his skill points had been distributed was different from ordinary saber geniuses.
If it were listed down in numbers, the skill points of ordinary saber geniuses were probably something along the lines of sword talent 1, saber talent 9; or a bit more extreme, sword talent 0, saber talent 10.
However, Song Shuhang’s points were distributed in a manner similar to sword talent -10, saber talent 20.
It was virtually impossible for him to practice with the sword in this life. It was only when it came to things like the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯, which had been derived from a saber technique, that he would be able to learn a move or two with a lot of effort.
Anyway, there was no limit to learning, and learning made people happy.
In the dreamland, after the passing of an unknown amount of time, Ancestor Juhao finally finished explaining the ❮Three Thousand Sabers Scripture❯.
On the day that Ancestor Juhao finished his explanation of the scripture, a strange aura could be found bursting out of the young Su Xian.
This was saber force.
It was what came before saber intent condensed.
Once one’s saber force formed, one would be able to integrate their will, belief, and saber path into the saber, thereby condensing saber intent.
Once one’s saber intent formed, that practitioner could be called a proper saber cultivator.
“Awesome!” Song Shuhang’s impression of Ancestor Juhao had improved greatly. The ancestor’s knowledge about the saber path was admirable.
During the whole process, the young Su Xian had not taken ‘Saber Intent Condensing Grass’ or other natural treasures that could help one condense saber intent. After simply listening to the ancestor’s explanation of the ❮Three Thousand Sabers Scripture❯, he had managed to condense saber force.
Although Song Shuhang had already condensed saber intent, he managed to do so due to him having experienced the saber intent in the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique in advance.
And besides that, he had taken a large amount of the evolved version of Saber Intent Condensing Grass, the Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seed.
Finally, when he encountered that group of invisible sword insects, their strikes filled with ‘sword intent’ had left an imprint on his forehead, which then resulted in the condensing of his own defensive saber intent.
Basically, his saber intent had been forced out.
Although he had saber intent, his understanding of the saber path was actually his weakness.
Now, the ❮Three Thousand Sabers Scripture❯ taught by Juhao had made up for Song Shuhang’s shortcomings.
Song Shuhang thought to himself, Unexpectedly, I was able to learn so much in a dreamland. If I have the opportunity to reenter the Heavenly Emperor’s dreamland again, I must take that opportunity to learn the language of the ancient era.
In the dreamland, Su Xian released his immature saber force.
Song Shuhang, who was living Su Xian’s life, also felt his ‘saber intent’ change.
The content of the ❮Three Thousand Sabers Scripture❯ integrated with his mind; it was understood and absorbed by him, and transformed into his own understanding and comprehension of the saber.
And his understanding of the saber path was then integrated with his saber intent.
Song Shuhang felt that his saber intent wasn’t something that could only be used for defense and for passive counterattacks. His saber intent should have more forms.
This ❮Three Thousand Sabers Scripture❯ was actually more precious than the ❮Heavenly Saber Burying the Starry Sea❯!
At this moment, he felt somewhat impatient.
He wanted to immediately wake up from the dreamland, and then try out his new insights to have his saber intent armor find its second form.
The second form was definitely an offensive form. It should also be really cool and domineering.
It was a pity that he couldn’t simply leave and go home.
That being said, the dreamland continued.
“Very well, Su Xian. Your talent in the saber path is indeed the best I have ever seen,” Ancestor Juhao praised. “Next, I will teach you a secret technique that will allow you to make further progress in uniting with your saber, and allow you to reach the ‘One With the Saber’ realm much faster.”
“A secret technique that will allow me to reach the ‘One With the Saber’ realm much faster?” Su Xian sat up with his back straight, staring at Ancestor Juhao with expectant eyes.
The realm of One With the Saber, similar to saber intent, was a realm that the many saber cultivators desired.
“This secret technique is called the ❮Sword-Nurturing Technique❯— Ah, no, I mean the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯,” Ancestor Juhao said in a deep voice.
“…” Su Xian.
If nothing was wrong with his hearing, he just heard Ancestor Juhao say Sword-Nurturing Technique, right?
