Wait a minute, this feeling of soft and tender hands stroking my head… isn’t this the same one I felt when I was sleeping?
Song Shuhang subconsciously felt that something was wrong.
He raised his head, and opened his eyes abruptly.
However, there was nothing in front of him.
“?” Rather than easing Song Shuhang’s heart, this only made him even more anxious.
What’s wrong with me? Why do I keep on feeling that there’s a small hand stroking my head?
Did someone cast a curse on me in secret?
While he was in thought, the feeling of a small hand caressing his head returned.
This time, the little hand had become more excessive. It would hold his head and forcibly twist it…
Song Shuhang was forced to turn around and look behind him.
Then, he saw a girl in a black dress squatting in the air behind him while holding his head.
After he turned around, her hand changed its movements once again. It went to touch his head repeatedly, sometimes gently tapping it as if she were tapping a watermelon.
It was Pavilion Master Chu Two.
Song Shuhang didn’t even need to look at her face; as soon as he saw the familiar black dress, the pearl hanging from it, and the cute bare feet, he could guess the identity of the girl in the black dress.
Song Shuhang smiled bitterly, and said, “Senior Chu, can you just call me when you come over? Don’t scare me like this.”
His head had been twisted as soon as she came; this had almost given him a heart attack.
Pavilion Master Chu Two continued to stroke Song Shuhang’s head. “Originally, I was planning on looking for you yesterday… But yesterday, I had to fight with some strange person for the whole day. It was hard to chase that person away. I don’t know what’s wrong with that guy, but as soon as he saw me, he rushed to fight me. That’s why I was only able to come today.”
Song Shuhang asked, “I remember someone touching my head when I was sleeping the day before yesterday. Was that also you?”
Pavilion Master Chu Two solemnly said, “Mm-hm, it was me. I had also gone to look for you that day, and when I found you, you were asleep. I was twisting your head here and there to check whether it was still good.”
Song Shuhang’s head currently had short hair, making it rather satisfying to rub.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Pavilion Master Chu said, “How is it? Is the head you were preparing for me ready? If it isn’t ready yet, I will be forced to twist your head instead.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Chu, is there a safer space we can go?”
Pavilion Master Chu Two replied, “Are you talking about a place similar to the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion? I have already abandoned the old Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion. There’s someone constantly taking peeks at it, which is really annoying. Also, it’s nearly completely collapsed. I only took away the Thriving and Withering Trees, but I haven’t built a new Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion yet.”
Song Shuhang explained, “Then let’s look for a wide place. The ‘head’ in my possession is quite special. Once I take it out and expose it to the main world’s air, it will attract giant turtles of disaster, which are responsible for recycling the ‘head’ in my hands.”
Pavilion Master Chu Two squeezed her chin. “It looks like you really found a very powerful head.”
Song Shuhang said, “Of course. Anyway, the giant turtles of disaster possess a rather fearsome talent called Space-Time Traversal. It can allow them to traverse even the Wielder’s small black room. There is virtually no space that they can’t enter.”
Pavilion Master Chu Two said, “I understand. Then just give me the ‘head’. I will see if it is appropriate or not. If it is, then even if such a turtle appears, I will send it flying.”
Song Shuhang said, “Let’s move to a wider area. Otherwise, once a giant turtle of disaster appears, my restaurant would be destroyed.”
When those giant turtles appeared, regardless of what precious place was right next to them, they would indifferently bite it to retrieve Skylark’s body part.
“Then let’s head to the sea.” Pavilion Master Chu Two grabbed Song Shuhang and kicked at the air.
A spatial gate opened, and she brought Song Shuhang into it, crossing space to arrive over the sea.
The spatial ability of those at the Ninth Stage was truly enviable.
It was too convenient. With spatial abilities, one could go wherever they wanted.
Pavilion Master Chu Two asked, “Is this place all right?”
“Yup. Senior Chu, just give me a moment.” Song Shuhang closed his eyes, and first contacted the other Pavilion Master Chu in the Inner World.
Song Shuhang said, [Senior Chu, try to conceal your aura. I’m going to open the Inner World for an instant. Do your best to avoid revealing your presence.]
Pavilion Master Chu’s head blew bubbles in the living spring. “Don’t worry, she can’t find me.”
After Pavilion Master Chu said this, Song Shuhang felt relieved.
His consciousness then shifted to the ‘Sword & Saber Peak’.
There, the body parts of Senior Skylark were piled up like a mountain. Song Shuhang recalled the time when he had brought them over. He was now clueless as to why he had even transferred over such a large amount of Skylark’s body parts.
However… he was lucky that he’d moved over so many of her body parts from the belly of that ‘giant turtle of disaster’. It was only by doing so that he got the opportunity to choose a head suitable for Pavilion Master Chu Two.
Song Shuhang’s consciousness swept through the pile of body parts, and quickly selected a suitable and complete head.
After willing it, he transferred the head out.
This head was still intact. Even the thick, coat-like blue hair was undamaged.
At this moment, the eyes of the head were closed, just as if she were sleeping.
After Song Shuhang took out the head, he quickly closed the ‘Inner World’ lest Pavilion Master Chu Two sensing Senior Chu One.
“Here it is. Senior Chu, please see if it is appropriate.” Song Shuhang handed Skylark’s head to Pavilion Master Chu.
Senior Skylark, I’m sorry!
Pavilion Master Chu Two stretched out her hand to take the head, and softly said, “It’s beautiful.”
Judging it solely by appearance, Senior Skylark was as beautiful as the brightest star in the night sky—this was Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s evaluation of her.
At this time, when she had her eyes closed, she looked just like a peaceful, sleeping beauty.
Moreover, her long blue hair and blue eyelashes gave her a sense of beauty that transcended reality, as if she did not belong to this world.
Song Shuhang asked, “Does Senior Chu find it fitting?”
Pavilion Master Chu Two responded, “I’ll have to try it out before I know. However, I feel very satisfied, and… I feel that there is an extraordinary power hidden in this head.”
“Yes,” Song Shuhang replied affirmatively—every part of Skylark’s physical body was filled with the aura of ‘eternity’.
Her eyes could even replace the body of a phoenix, which could be reborn from ashes, in the production of a resurrection magical treasure.
Pavilion Master Chu Two said, “I like it very much.”
Song Shuhang looked at Pavilion Master Chu Two with a satisfied look. “Senior, how are you planning on putting this head on?”
In fact, he was curious about this from the very beginning.
Pavilion Master Chu Two had her own head. If she had gotten the head of her main body, she could simply use an absorption technique to merge the two heads. But now that she got someone else’s head, how was she going to put it on?
Pavilion Master Chu Two said, “Of course, I just need to install it.”
She held Skylark’s head high up. Then, as if she were putting on a crown, she pressed it against her head.
“???” Song Shuhang.
Is she going to wear the head like a hat? Will Pavilion Master Chu Two really become a fairy with two heads?
The scene felt so out of place in his mind.
In front of him, Fairy Skylark’s head finally made contact with Pavilion Master Chu Two’s head. Pavilion Master Chu Two’s original head seemed to become ‘illusory’, just as if it had become intangible.
Fairy Skylark’s head was then pressed against the neck of Pavilion Master Chu Two.
“Is this for real?” Song Shuhang was dumbfounded.
Where did Pavilion Master Chu Two’s original head go?
He was sure that Pavilion Master Chu Two’s original head was also real and tangible.
Pavilion Master Chu Two was born from the Thriving and Withering Trees back when the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion collapsed.
After she was born, she had once hugged Song Shuhang, and whispered in his ear.
At that time, Song Shuhang had made contact with her head, and it was definitely not something illusory!
“Aaah~ Oh~ Hey~” In front of him, Pavilion Master Chu’s mouth was wide open as she started to make some sounds—she was using Skylark’s head to make them.
“…” Song Shuhang.
This was the magical world of cultivation.
Eyes could be plucked out and replaced with new ones without problems.
If something like an arm was broken, you could simply get a new one.
Even heads could be replaced by simply placing the new one on the old one, which was a lot more convenient than head surgery.
Just as Song Shuhang let out an emotional sigh, a huge mouth appeared beneath them, chomping at Song Shuhang and Pavilion Master Chu.
There was no sound, no spatial fluctuations, and no energy fluctuations.
The giant turtle of disaster seemed to have appeared out of nowhere.
Pavilion Master Chu Two raised her feet, and her petite figure stepped on the head of the giant turtle of disaster.
The giant turtle of disaster was forced downward, falling from the air, and falling into the vast ocean.
With Song Shuhang’s reminder, Pavilion Master Chu Two had been ready.
In the face of an Immortal-level existence that had long been on guard, the giant turtle of disaster’s sneak attack would be of no use.
Song Shuhang said, “Senior Chu, please be careful. Giant turtles of disaster are very difficult to deal with. They will keep appearing and attacking until they’ve recovered the head.”
In front of him, Pavilion Master Chu Two stretched out her hand, and gently stroked her long blue hair.
In the next moment, she opened her eyes.
Her pupils were no longer blue, but black.
At the same time, her blue hair and blue eyelashes all turned into pitch black, just as if they had been dyed.
This process was very similar to the process when Senior Skylark’s ‘bone of eternity’ had been corrupted, causing her to blacken.
Song Shuhang cautiously asked, “Senior Chu, are you okay?”
Pavilion Master Chu Two replied, “I’m fine… I’m better than ever. My path has been completed.”
As she spoke, her face also began to change.
It was originally Skylark’s face, but after a few breaths, it turned back to her original appearance.
But between her features, there was still a hint of Skylark’s appearance.
Her head was now 80% Pavilion Master Chu + 20% Skylark.
Whether it was facial features or temperament, this new Pavilion Master Chu Two was way more charming.
Anyway, Pavilion Master Chu’s path was finally completed?
