It felt like the Universe-Piercing Flying Shuttle had been waiting for Song Shuhang and the others to be chased by the gray Buddha statue, and take that opportunity to open a spatial gate and have them enter into it.
The chariot continued to roll all the way into the spatial channel.
The puppet maiden said, “Stabilize!”
Although the chariot had flipped over, this did not mean that she should just give up on stabilizing it.
“A spatial gate?” In the distance, the gray Buddha statue also saw this spatial door.
In the next moment, it forcefully endured the severe pain pulsating in its belly, and gave chase the fastest it had ever gone in its entire life—the spatial gate likely represented a passage out of this strange gray world.
It’d had enough of this gray world where it could not use its spatial abilities.
Ever since it got drawn into this gray world, it couldn’t do anything other than blast the gray sea every day.
Later, it had finally gotten to see an immortal shuttle, but the speed of this immortal shuttle was too high. It had never managed to catch up to it, and was repeatedly provoked instead.
The immortal shuttle’s manner of provocation was ever-changing. Faced with the provocations again and again, even Buddha would get angry.
Then today… It finally got to encounter living people inside a chariot, but it didn’t think that the infamous Profound Sage Tyrannical Song would be sitting in the chariot. It was ultimately struck by the Impregnating Gaze from a distance, causing cramps to emerge in its belly, just as if something were about to come out of it.
It was simply unbearable.
Anyway, it couldn’t miss this spatial gate even if it meant death.
This might be the only opportunity for it to leave this place.
“Stop!” The gray Buddha statue let out a roar as its speed rose steadily.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “This great monk is catching up again… If it weren’t for my energy not having recovered, I would have already lashed out on him. How could I possibly have let him be so arrogant otherwise? Right, Shuhang, I felt like our cooperation this time went really smoothly. After performing the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique, I felt comfortable all over; it was as if my whole body had been massaged. Next time, when my energy recovers, use me to send out a slash again.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
That comfortable feeling that Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword enjoyed, it couldn’t be the effect of the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯ that he had accidentally let slip out, right?
Under the nourishment of the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯, Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword felt very comfortable, huh? What would be the effect if he used it on his own life-bound treasured sabers, namely the Tyrant Cuttlefish’s Twin Blades and Broken Tyrant?
There was also the invisible saber insect; could it also receive the effects of the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯?
Right, there was also Lady Onion’s Nine Virtues Saber, should he try out the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯ on it as well?
Wait… Aren’t I too calm and collected right now?
There’s something off about my current state.
The gray Buddha statue in the distance was catching up quickly… By visual estimate, if there weren’t any accidents and the spatial channel didn’t close anytime soon, then the gray Buddha statue should be able to catch up to them! And if the Buddha statue were to catch up with them, the first thing it would do was definitely to pinch him, the Profound Sage Tyrannical Song who had made it pregnant twice, to death.
At this time, shouldn’t his heart be beating really quickly and feel really panicky and anxious?
However… though the situation clearly appeared to be very tense and frightening, his heart was completely calm.
There was still one more thing.
The Divine Lobster’s Chariot was constantly rolling, and this should have been a lot more exciting than a roller coaster.
However, Song Shuhang didn’t feel anything at all.
Have I entered the salted fish sage mode? Song Shuhang thought.
Thinking about it carefully, it seemed that all of his emotions seemed to have been suppressed after his party fell into the spatial channel.
Since I can’t feel panicked, have my other emotions been affected as well? Song Shuhang, in a state of incomparable calmness, began to check things out.
In this salted fish sage mode, after losing his emotions, the calculation speed of his brain seemed to have improved.
He tried to recall some happy things, some sad things, and even some shameful past events in his mind.
But in the end, there were still no fluctuations in his emotions.
He could not feel a trace of happiness, sadness, or shame.
Song Shuhang softly said, “Is this a forced salted fish mode?”
Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “What?”
Song Shuhang said, “I feel that my current state is a bit strange. My emotions have been suppressed, I can’t feel any sense of panic, happiness, and shame.”
“…” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Ahead, the puppet maiden finally stabilized the chariot.
She turned her head to look at Song Shuhang, and asked, “Is there no mood swing in your heart?”
Song Shuhang seriously said, “Yes, so I suspect that this spatial channel has a special power. After creatures enter this place, they’re forced into a salted fish sage mode.”
The puppet maiden said, “I think that you’re thinking too much… According to my experience, you must have been stimulated too much over a short period of time. Because of this, anything that takes place right now can no longer stimulate your heart.”
Song Shuhang said, “No, I didn’t become like this even when I was facing the big-eyed planet or the fat ball. Can the pressure of this gray Buddha statue compare to those two? Taking that into account, it’s impossible for the current situation to overstimulate me.”
After saying that, he raised his head, looked into the depths of the spatial channel, and calmly said, “Isn’t this spatial channel a bit too long? It’s been quite a while, yet we still haven’t reached the other side…”
“Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, take this palm of mine!” As had been expected by Song Shuhang, the gray Buddha statue had gotten to them before the spatial gate could close.
Its huge palm pierced into the spatial channel.
“See, even with this palm is about to hit my head, there is still no fluctuation in my heart,” Song Shuhang expressionlessly said while pointing at the giant palm that was quickly moving toward him.
The puppet maiden anxiously said, “You’re too calm, defend yourself, you bastard!”
Song Shuhang slowly shook his head, and said, “Rest assured, there is no need to defend… because defending would be completely unnecessary. I’ve calculated it in my mind, there’s no saving us. Even if I were to take my Combined Magical Treasure out, we won’t be able to stop this palm. At a time like this, we can only pray.”
He’s beyond hopeless!
The puppet maiden would cry if it weren’t for its current body not having the ability to do so.
“…” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
At this moment, a very magnetic voice sounded right by Song Shuhang and the others’ ears. “Whom are you going to pray to, boy?”
In the next moment, a dazzling light appeared in the depths of the spatial channel.
That ray of light swallowed everything in the spatial channel.
In this light, there was a figure dressed in white slowly approaching Song Shuhang and the others.
The figure was bare-footed and had long hair that covered his back. His face was shrouded in holy light, making it impossible for others to see his appearance.
When he appeared, everything in the spatial channel paused.
The chariot, and even the giant palm that had been shooting towards him, seemed to have been frozen in time.
It was only thoughts that had not been frozen.
Is this the owner of this sealed space? Song Shuhang immediately had this thought emerge in his mind.
This was the intuition that emerged in his mind after seeing the other party.
The white-robed figure took a few steps and appeared right before the giant Buddha’s palm, and then he stretched out his hand against the palm.
The white-robed figure said, “Your training has yet to end, so you can’t leave.”
In the next moment, the gray Buddha statue was struck and sent flying, all the way until it disappeared into the gray sea.
The white-robed figure retracted his hands and looked at Song Shuhang again. “Have you learned?”
“???” Song Shuhang.
Learned what, your cool methods to deal with enemies?
But I don’t have the means to make time freeze to deal with my enemies. If I’d had such means, I would have easily defeated this Buddha statue, no?
The white-robed figure said, “Your thinking is very jumpy, boy.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
It’s the mind-reading technique again.
It seems like only those with mind-reading techniques are qualified to join the ranks of big shots.
However, his heart was still calm, and he was not as embarrassed as he was when his thoughts had been read by Senior White Two or other big shots.
“Anyway, what I was hinting at was the palm I used to deal with the giant Buddha just now, wasn’t that worth studying? The palm of mine just now was a move that forcefully dealt with the giant Buddha, do you not think that this direct way of fighting is very suitable for you? What do you think?” The white-robed figure came to the side of the Divine Lobster’s Chariot.
The immortal shuttle had rushed to the side of the white-robed figure at some point in time.
The white-robed figure stretched out his hand and patted the immortal shuttle lightly.
It was almost as if it were his pet.
Song Shuhang calmly thought, This Universe-Piercing Flying Shuttle was supposed to have no owner, right? It seems that the secret appraisal technique can also be unreliable at times.
In addition, when he said that a more direct way of fighting suits me, was he mocking how I don’t have an absolute move, or was he telling me that I should be more straightforward in my battles with others?
“Don’t think too much, boy.” The white-robed figure patted Song Shuhang’s shoulder lightly. “All styles are empty. In the future, when you fight with others, as long as their strength cannot compare to yours, you can just deal with them forcefully.”
Song Shuhang replied in his mind, [I think I can still be saved, but I’m not any good with sword techniques. Well, at least my talent when it comes to the saber is pretty good.]
The white-robed figure said, “Boy, your comprehension is too low. Complete suppression is the most refreshing way of fighting.”
After saying that, he grabbed the immortal shuttle, and took one step after the other towards the depths of the spatial channel.
At this time, the time-freeze effect on Song Shuhang’s Divine Lobster’s Chariot was lifted, and the chariot seemed to be dragged by the white-robed figure into the depths of the spatial channel.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Who was that?”
The puppet maiden asked, “Shuhang, do you know this senior?”
“No, I don’t.” Song Shuhang shook his head.
Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “If you don’t know him, then why would he help you?”
Song Shuhang said, “Perhaps it was simply fated to be.”
“…” The puppet maiden.
“Yes, it is fate.” At this moment, the white-robed figure in front of them suddenly turned his head, and said, “Over the innumerable years, across the entire universe, among the countless creatures, only you and I are tied by fate.”
Song Shuhang, who was in the salted fish state, very calmly asked, “What kind of fate is it?”
The white-robed figure said, “How should I describe it? One day, I picked up a… hm, a brick. I picked up a brick and threw it into the universe, and it hit you.”
Song Shuhang suddenly realized. “I understand! Your brick accidentally killed me, so according to the plot, as you had no means to revive me, you arranged for me to be reborn?”
“…” The white-robed figure.
The young man’s brain seems to jump around a bit too quickly.
