My chat group clone, which I’d just gotten, is now gone just like that!
Song Shuhang felt as if his heart had been stabbed by a knife.
He’d been planning on having his main body focus on studying and practicing every day.
Meanwhile, his clone would be responsible for keeping watch on the store, teaching his disciples, and learning the language of the ancient era.
Then, his steel manifestation would be responsible for chatting in the group chat, and taking care of the spirit plants and spirit beasts in the Inner World.
However, just as the saying went, man proposes, but God disposes.
His steel manifestation was gone in the blink of an eye.
Song Shuhang silently let out a sigh.
If it weren’t for his firm will, he might have fainted from anger.
While he was in thought, the virtuous lamia exited his body, which was currently nothing but a pool of blood. With her tail laid down like a plate, she ‘sat’ next to Song Shuhang before stretching her hand out to gently touch his head.
Fairy ＠#%×, are you comforting me?
“Thank you, Fairy Waiting for a Promise.” Song Shuhang was moved.
There were times when the fairy gave him a heart-warming feeling.
At this time, Fairy Creation also appeared. She sat opposite the virtuous lamia, and stretched her hand out to touch Song Shuhang’s head in the same way.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Why do I feel like I’m being fought over by two pets?
While he was in thought, Fairy Creation spoke. She said in a singing voice, “Choose a way to die. How do you want to die?”
Opposite her, the virtuous lamia said, “I’m giving you 10 seconds. Choose how you want to die.”
“???” Song Shuhang.
Immediately afterward, the two fairies stood up at the same time, and surrounded Song Shuhang from his left and right.
Fairy ＠#％×’s tail went upright as she supported herself on the tip of her tail.
Fairy Creation raised her left leg and assumed the pose of a golden rooster standing on one leg.
The two fairies then spread their hands like the wings of a white crane, and said in Song Shuhang’s voice, “A… refreshing death maybe?”
“…” Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword.
After Fairy ＠#％× met Fairy Creation, the two started competing, and they would occasionally cooperate with each other.
Song Shuhang’s head tilted, his face devoid of emotion.
He couldn’t believe that he was moved by the virtuous lamia’s actions initially.
As Fairy Creation and the virtuous lamia played around by his side, the long time that was needed for his body to recondense passed by unknowingly.
Song Shuhang’s body recovered to how it was before.
The virtuous lamia took out the sheet they’d received from Senior White Two, and put it on Song Shuhang.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “How do you feel? Is there anything weird with your body?”
Song Shuhang lightly clenched his fists. “It seems that there is no problem at the moment. The ‘Rebirth Pill’ from the Almighty Merchant was quite powerful. Other than a slight feeling of weakness, there aren’t any other aftereffects. Even the painful price from my previous ‘appraisal’ of Senior White is completely gone.”
It might be because Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword had fused the ancient divine witch blood with his body, but Song Shuhang felt that his flesh had become stronger.
With a thought, he circulated the ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯ and ❮Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique❯.
First, a huge Holy Ape appeared. This was the Holy Ape from Senior White Two, and it was very strong and big.
Immediately afterward, another 23 Ancient Holy Apes emerged. There was also a Scholarly Scripture in the hands of each Holy Ape.
“Sure enough, my body has grown stronger,” Song Shuhang said.
Previously, he only had a total of 21 Ancient Holy Apes, but now there were three more.
The ‘ancient divine witch blood’ truly was a good thing… It had brought an immediate increase to the strength of his physique.
Since he now had a total of 24 Holy Apes, they could no longer be arranged in an arrow formation. This time, the Holy Apes formed a triangular formation.
The largest Holy Ape was at the tip of the triangle, while the remaining 23 Holy apes formed the rest of an isosceles triangle.
Apart from the strengthening of his physique, Song Shuhang found no other changes to his body.
There was no trace of his steel manifestation. It was completely gone.
Song Shuhang even used his Inner Sight, but still found no trace of the steel manifestation.
Could it be… You! Song Shuhang quickly sent his consciousness into the dantian with his whale core.
After all, this thing had quite the criminal record.
Did this guy forget the virtuous lamia’s terrifying little hands and swallowed the core reactor?
But after using his mind to check the whale core, he found that there hadn’t been any changes to it. Its lower abdomen did not swell, and it just lay quietly in his dantian.
It wasn’t the fat whale golden core?
Then, where did my steel manifestation go?
“Should I use the appraisal technique on myself?” Song Shuhang’s right hand got ready to move.
However, he quickly restrained the urge to use the secret appraisal technique.
He had just used up the ‘Rebirth Pill’; what if activating the secret appraisal technique caused his body to explode again?
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “It looks like your body is fine.”
Pavilion Master Chu said, “Also, you seem to have gotten slightly stronger. Have you already mastered how to become stronger by relying on ‘death’?”
“How could that be!” Song Shuhang said in distress.
He stood up, got another set of clothes from the Inner World, and put it on.
He also took his magical bracelet, phone, and ring-like objects that had fallen off his body after he burst apart, and put them on.
“I’ll have to buy some clothes.” Song Shuhang turned his phone on and checked the time.
It was already four o’clock in the afternoon.
Song Shuhang thought to himself, I’ve got plenty of time right now. I should have time to go shopping.
Currently, his Inner World’s coordinates were set on ‘Western Orchid Island’, so it was very easy for him to go shopping if he wanted to.
Song Shuhang wondered, “Should I make use of the time while Senior White has yet to return to go shopping with someone?”
After saying that, he looked around.
Pavilion Master Chu had only her head left.
The virtuous lamia and Fairy Creation had returned inside his body, and they had no intention of going shopping with him.
Before the virtuous lamia went back to his body, she had swallowed Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, who was the only one who had been chatting with him, was now gone.
Song Shuhang murmured, “Should I go and look for Lady Onion?”
“What’s the matter?” While he was talking to himself, Senior Turtle slowly crawled over with Lady Onion in tow.
Senior Turtle said, “I smelled the scent of blood, so I came to take a look. Sure enough… Shuhang, you blew up again.”
“Why were you going to look for me?” Lady Onion asked, her eyes locked on Song Shuhang’s phone.
Song Shuhang asked, “Do you want to go shopping?”
“Nope, there’s nothing interesting about shopping. I prefer to stay at home,” Lady Onion replied.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Does this silly green onion really have the qualifications to become the Wielder of the Heaven’s Will?
Could Senior Scarlet Heaven have been mistaken?
Song Shuhang said, “Come with me. It’s time for you to have your own phone. In addition, I’ll be buying one for Senior Turtle as well to make contacting you guys easier. There’s also the puppet maiden and Yinzhu whom I will be buying phones.”
Lady Onion heard this, and immediately jumped off Senior Turtle’s shell.
Afterward, she transformed into her human form and landed gracefully. “Shopping is very interesting, after all. Shall we go right away?”
“…” Senior Turtle.
While they were talking, the passage between the Inner World and the world of the black lotus opened.
Senior White stepped out of the evil lotus world.
Behind him, Senior White Two waved gently. “See you next time. Next time, we can continue researching.”
Senior White nodded. “I look forward to seeing you in the future.”
“?” Song Shuhang.
Why do I feel like during the time I was away, the two Senior Whites grew much closer, and have already become good friends?
After Senior White descended next to Song Shuhang, he reached out and threw a phone-like object at him.
It was the ‘magical power top-up device’.
Song Shuhang asked, “Eh? Senior White, weren’t you going to study this?”
Senior White reached out again, and threw another ‘magical power top-up device’ to Lady Onion.
“!!!” Song Shuhang.
Senior White said, “We’ve already completed our research on it. Fellow Daoist White Rabbit (Two) and I studied this ‘magical power top-up device’, and we’ve even developed a bunch of imitations of it. However, how to charge it is still a problem. Regardless of whether it was spiritual energy, spirit stones, Netherworld energy, or magic, none of them could recharge the ‘magical power top-up device’. Fellow Daoist White Rabbit relied on his power as the ‘ruler of the Netherworld’, and made it such that the device could use converted evil energy of the Netherworld and store it. However, I still feel that something is missing.”
Song Shuhang replied, “Black Dragon Spirit Stones seem to be what is needed to recharge it. They probably have a special kind of energy.”
Senior White said, “It’s not something that can be solved with just Black Dragon Spirit Stones. I discussed this with Fellow Daoist White Rabbit. In addition to energy, it should be lacking something similar to a ‘signal network’. The magical power top-up device probably uses that network to cast magical techniques. It should be a relatively complicated structure.”
Song Shuhang said, “Why do I feel that this thing is more and more like a phone… In addition to charging its battery, it also needs to be topped up, and it also needs something like a phone SIM card to connect to a network before it can be used.”
“That’s indeed how it feels,” Senior White said. “Anyway, Fellow Daoist White Rabbit had temporarily converted some energy to recharge this magical top-up device. They should allow you to release nine Fifth Stage magical techniques.”
Song Shuhang inquired, “Then, can it be combined with a phone?”
“Yeah, it’s something I’ll try it out next time,” Senior White happily said. “In addition, besides this magical power top-up device, we’re still studying a few other things. There’s the medicine that can deal with the ‘evil energy virus’ that the other ruler of the Netherworld created… and we’re also studying the metal heart of that big-eyed planet, attempting to understand its structure. After a while, we should be able to make imitations of them… We also studied the Universe-Piercing Flying Shuttle. Finally, I also taught Fellow Daoist White Rabbit how to produce small-black-room-breaking disposable flying swords. Today has been very fulfilling and satisfying.”
The two Senior Whites had found common ground on dismantling and researching things. This was also the reason the two had quickly grown closer.
Song Shuhang said, “Speaking of which, I still have a few Celestial aircraft. Senior White, you can take a look at them, and see if they pique your interest.”
Senior White nodded. “Okay, I’ll take a look at them next time. Right, what’s next up in your plans?”
Song Shuhang replied, “I want to buy a few sets of clothes, buy a few phones, and finally set up an account for Lady Onion for her expenses. After that, I’ll exchange the Celestials for spirit stones and points, and that should be it.”
Senior White said, “Then let’s go and take care of your affairs first. After that, I’ll take you to the ruins in the chaotic sea in the early morning hours of the morning. That’s where the magical power top-up device was found, so we might be able to find more clues there.”
