When Song Shuhang heard Senior White Two’s voice come from behind him, he had already had an intuition that whatever it was or whoever it was behind them was dangerous.
However, from having been in contact with ‘Wielder of the Will White’, as well as the other party saying that they must absolutely not look back, Song Shuhang thought that this danger originated from the gray, misty grassland.
I must not look back, no matter what happens.
Therefore, to him, increasing the speed of the Divine Lobster’s Chariot was the most obvious choice.
But for some reason, after the Divine Lobster’s Chariot accelerated… the sense of crisis in his heart did not diminish, but increased instead.
Song Shuhang had such a thought in his mind, Could it be… that the one behind us is really Senior White Two?
If that’s really Senior White Two, when he said ‘have a taste of my sword’, was he referring to the Holy Sword of the End? If it was the Holy Sword of the End, then what need do I have to be afraid? That’s my life-bound magical treasure, Song Shuhang in the salted fish sage mode thought calmly.
But if it was indeed Senior White Two, then he would still have to give him a proper explanation to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings.
As such, Song Shuhang got ready to explain the rules of the “don’t look back” game to Senior White Two.
However, before he could even say anything, he felt a terrifying wave of power approach from behind.
It was as if the world was about to end.
In the face of such power, Song Shuhang felt a sense of powerlessness akin to how ordinary people felt toward natural disasters.
The Divine Lobster’s Chariot was lifted up into the air while the powerful force affected Song Shuhang, the puppet maiden, Chu Chu, and Scarlet Heaven Sword.
The puppet maiden and Scarlet Heaven Sword were fine as they could still manage themselves in the face of such power.
However, Chu Chu felt her eyes be engulfed in darkness, as she quickly fell into a coma once again.
As for Song Shuhang, his figure was sent spinning into the air.
While he was spinning, he saw what was behind them—it was a scene of Senior White Two tripping and falling into the ground while holding a giant sword, smashing out a large pit.
Song Shuhang thought, Not good, I’ve ‘turned back’. Am I going to turn into stone? Am I going to die?
Despite this notion appearing in his mind, there was not the slightest wave of disturbance in his heart.
Song Shuhang had not stopped thinking, remaining completely calm the entire time. The shock wave that made it seem as if the world was ending just now turns out to only be Senior White Two tripping and falling to the ground; no wonder it had such power. I got hit by this force head-on, am I going to die? That’s not good, my Resurrection Gold Coin has yet to come off cooldown.
As expected of Senior White Two. Merely falling to the ground along with the two-hundred-meter-long holy sword had such a great impact.
Right, why have I still not died, or turned into stone? I’ve clearly already looked back, why hasn’t anything happened? While Song Shuhang was spinning round after round in the air, he was deep in thought.
Could it be that Senior Wielder of the Will White had been bluffing?
Was I fooled?
Even if I look back, nothing will happen at all?
Just as Song Shuhang was thinking this, his body moved involuntarily.
His body, which was originally rotating, stopped abruptly. In the next moment, he stepped on the air and started to move toward the ‘starting point’.
At the same time, the ‘gray mist’ clouding his eyes became denser.
He couldn’t see anything at all.
So it turned out that looking back… really did have a price.
The price was that one would get lost on this gray grassland and fall into a huge maze. Whether one could get out or not depended on their luck.
“Not long after getting my leg back, I actually tripped again.” Senior White Two put away the Holy Sword of the End and got up from the pit.
When he crawled out of the pit, he happened to see Song Shuhang above his head, treading the air with muddled eyes.
Senior White Two said, “What game are you playing right now?”
“Senior White, it’s not good… I accidentally looked back. Now, I’m subject to the curse of this grassland,” Song Shuhang cried. “On this grassland, terrible things will happen once you look back. I feel like I’m soon going to get lost in this grassland.”
Senior White Two: “…”
He stretched out his hand and made a grabbing motion in the air. An invisible hand grabbed Song Shuhang and took hold of him.
However, even if he was caught, Song Shuhang’s body constantly twisted and struggled, as if he wanted to run into the depths of the grassland.
Senior White Two said, “It isn’t a curse, but the power of a set of rules.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Can it be undone? Can I be saved?”
Senior White Two replied, “Of course.”
Song Shuhang said, “Senior White, help me!”
Senior White Two said, “That’s my intention.”
After saying that, he grabbed Song Shuhang’s foot with one hand, and then spun him around wildly in the air.
Song Shuhang said with difficulty, “Ahhhhh~ Sen~ ior~ White~ What are youuuu~ doiiiing~”
This image of being swung around wildly made him recall Fairy Lychee’s 360-degree windmill wheel.
It was just that Senior White Two’s spinning was a lot faster, stronger, and more lethal.
Not good, my head feels really dizzy. I feel really nauseous, and my body feels like it’s being stretched like noodles… I feel like I’m going to die.
“Sen~ ior~ White~, I’m going to dieeee,” Song Shuhang shouted. At the same time, he was still calmly remembering in his mind—when did he offend Senior White Two today?
He truly couldn’t remember.
In the past few days, because his Resurrection Gold Coin was on cooldown, he had restrained himself. He usually didn’t do things that were too death-seeking, so how did he end up offending Senior White Two?
In an attempt to deal with his current problem, Song Shuhang in the salted fish sage mode asked calmly, “Senior White~ If I’ve wronged you, can I apologize?”
Senior White Two said, “It’s too late, you must die at least once today.”
Song Shuhang said, “Please don’t. My resurrection cooldown is still up.”
Senior White Two said, “It’s useless to say anything more, die!”
The windmill spun even faster, and in a more terrifying manner.
The friction between Song Shuhang’s body and the air, causing his skin to turn red, just like a meteor entering the atmosphere.
The counterfeit sheet on his body spun and howled as if it were dubbing Song Shuhang.
After an unknown amount of time had passed… Song Shuhang’s eyes finally rolled back as he could no longer hold on and fainted.
Senior White Two threw Song Shuhang back into the Divine Lobster’s Chariot, satisfied.
Scarlet Heaven Sword glanced at the roasting Song Shuhang, and said softly, “He’s out cold… No, more like out hot.”
Senior White Two took a few steps to get to where the chariot was. “Move, let’s leave this damned place.”
The puppet maiden obediently drove the chariot.
The ruler of the Netherworld is sitting right next to me. This is so terrifying. His body seems to be full of destruction and the most evil things in the world. I really want to squat down and cry. What do I do? Currently waiting online for an answer, urgent.
The puppet maiden really admired Song Shuhang—he was probably the only cultivator in the entire universe who was still alive after irritating a ruler of the Netherworld.
Sitting beside the puppet maiden, Senior White Two asked, “How long until his resurrection cooldown comes off?”
The puppet maiden replied cautiously, “Around six or seven days.”
Senior White Two said solemnly, “Around a week? Very well… When he wakes up, tell him that this is not over. I will come looking for him again in a week. Once one offends the ruler of the Netherworld, they should forget about living a peaceful life.”
The puppet maiden nodded vigorously—when Ruler of the Netherworld White got serious, he was simply terrifying. Fortunately, she was a puppet; otherwise, tears would definitely be streaming down her face due to the fear.
The Divine Lobster’s Chariot flew forward and finally reached the end of the gray grassland.
When the chariot moved forward a bit more, it fell out of the gray grassland, and fell to where Heavenly Field Island was.
On Heavenly Field Island, Island Master Tian Tiankong and Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman were standing together.
Previously, when Island Master Tian Tiankong returned from the sealed space, all the pieces of his soul gathered. This caused the means of resurrection he had left on the island to be activated, letting his body recover to what it was before. In addition, his realm had also improved. Not only was his Golden Core Composition now complete, but it had even undergone some strange changes, becoming more complex and providing him with more potential.
Although he had used up the resurrection formation that he had set up with great difficulty, overall, he had benefited more than he lost.
With the trial and the comprehension he gained in the ‘sealed space’, his ascension to the Sixth Stage was only a matter of time. He now had great confidence even if he were to go against the heavenly tribulation of the Sixth Stage.
However, for the entire Heavenly Field Island, the sealed space was undoubtedly a disaster.
When the entire Heavenly Field Island returned from the ‘sealed space’, the souls of many residents had gotten gravely injured, and it would cost no small amount of effort to heal them.
There were even some residents whose souls had yet to come out from the sealed space…
One example of this was Vice-Island Master Tian Tianwei. A part of her soul still had not returned, and because of this, she was currently in a vegetative state.
White hair had appeared on Island Master Tian Tiankong’s head due to the stress he was experiencing.
On weekdays, the affairs on Heavenly Field Island were handled by Vice-Island Master Tian Tianwei. But now, these things had fallen on his head. Fortunately, his good friend, Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman, was assisting him.
Song Shuhang’s Divine Lobster’s Chariot landed on Heavenly Field Island.
Island Master Tian Tiankong immediately noticed this and quickly went towards the chariot.
“It’s little friend Song.” Island Master Tian Tiankong was overjoyed—while Song Shuhang was in that strange space, did he get to meet Tian Tianwei again?
When Senior White Two saw Island Master Tian Tiankong and Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman coming over, he opened a spatial gate and left right after.
The puppet maiden let out a breath of relief.
She had been terribly frightened, and even the titanium alloy that made up her knees had gone soft.
Afterward, she plunged herself into Song Shuhang’s Inner World—Shuhang still hadn’t canceled her permissions to open a passage into the Inner World.
As for the Divine Lobster’s Chariot, it returned to Song Shuhang’s body on its own.
“Little friend Song seems to have fainted. His mouth is frothing, and it looks like he’s in a lot of pain.”
“This little girl, Chu Chu, is also unconscious.”
“Let’s first send them to the medical hall for treatment.”
After an unknown amount of time.
When Song Shuhang opened his eyes again, it was dusk and already getting dark outside.
He found himself lying on a hospital bed with his disciple, Chu Chu, in the next bed.
In a daze, Song Shuhang stretched out his hand to his side and grabbed his mobile phone.
He was currently dizzy and nauseous; he had yet to recover from the aftereffects of Senior White Two’s version of the windmill wheel.
The first thing he did was to look at the date and time.
October 17, 2019. Thursday. 17:33.
Song Shuhang murmured, “It’s just as I estimated. There are still six days before the Resurrection Gold Coin goes off cooldown. After today, there are still five days.”
The sealed space matter had concluded—but he had no idea what was the situation on Heavenly Field Island.
For now, he needed some rest.
Song Shuhang said softly, “After this Heavenly Field Island matter, it should be about time to return to Jiangnan University Town.”
His goal was to live a peaceful life for the next six days.
Of course, it would be better for him to wait for Senior White to come out of the ‘sealed space’ before returning to Jiangnan University Town. That way, his safety would be further guaranteed.
At this time, on the beach of a small island in the Pacific Ocean.
A little girl in a black dress was squatting with her bare feet. Sand flowed between her toes, shining brightly.
At this time, the girl was grilling huge squid tentacles. While she was grilling, she was counting the time. “Two more days. At that time, I can go to Song Shuhang to get my head back. If Song Shuhang can give me a satisfying head, then that’d be good…”
If he couldn’t, should she really screw off his head?
She fell into thought.
After all, it was a man’s head, wasn’t it a bit unfitting for her?
After thinking for a long time, she nodded her head seriously.
Mm-hm, I’m going to screw his head off. I already said that I was going to do so!
At most, after finding a more suitable head, she could return his head to him.
Unknowingly, she seemed to have given up on the thought of putting the original Pavilion Master Chu’s head on herself.
“This is the information sent by spacecraft no. 16 before it disappeared—we’ve encountered a mutant prey with four golden cores. The four golden cores in its body are so dazzling. It’s the most perfect prey. No matter what, we must obtain it.” The group of golden core hunters, also known as the celestial race, trembled in excitement.
They were eager to find this cultivator that was being talked about in the report.
If they could hunt down such prey, they would obtain supreme glory.
“Does Profound Sage Tyrannical Song still remember the agreement he made with us? Can he really make an antidote for the evil energy of the Netherworld?” Sage Monarch Blue Phoenix was with the two girls with colorful hair, deep in thought.
Before returning to the Beast Realm, should they pay Profound Sage Tyrannical Song a visit again?
“The signal of the core reactor has appeared again, but it’s very unstable. It’s flickering. Carefully lock onto the signal; it’s fine if the experimental body is destroyed, but absolutely nothing must happen to the core reactor!”
“Damn it, the experimental subject was clearly brainwashed by us, so how did she escape?”
“Let’s find the core reactor first. If we really have no other choice, we will have to deploy a secret weapon.”
A newly emerging international superstar laughed, and said, “I made an appointment with a little friend of mine at the next stop. My next concert shall be held at Jiangnan University Town.”
He had written a new song to give to Song Shuhang and Soft Feather, these two genuine hardcore fans of his.
In the chaotic sea, on the seabed.
A humanoid figure covered with black scales was thrown out of a spatial rift.
“Ahhhh!” He screamed as he fell to the ground in pain. After that, he stretched out his hand and quickly searched around him. “Where’s the magic power charging machine? Where is it? It was clearly with me when I broke out of that ancient spatial formation, so where did it go?”
After scouring his own body for a while, he didn’t find the magic power charging machine.
The eyes of the black scaly humanoid creature widened as its head tilted; it died.
