Chapter 1614: Droste effect in a Golden Core Composition

As soon as Song Shuhang saw the scene of the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’, he couldn’t help but feel a sense of sadness—Pavilion Master Chu’s head was still in his Inner World, blowing bubbles. For Pavilion Master Chu, the destruction of the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion was a great pain.

But… why did my spirit ghost draw the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’?

Could it be because she previously swallowed that curse related to Pavilion Master Chu?

Unexpectedly, the ghost spirit used the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’ as the theme for her composition. When the time came, he’d pay extra attention to making it such that Pavilion Master Chu didn’t come into contact with the Golden Core Composition on the ‘Royal Blood Demon Core’.

While he was in thought, most of the ghost spirit’s Golden Core Composition was already complete.

“So fast!” Song Shuhang said in shock.

He just lost himself in thought for a short while, yet his ghost spirit was already nearly done!

This speed was simply amazing.

When Song Shuhang made his own Golden Core Composition, it was like squeezing toothpaste every time: the more he drew, the harder it was for him to make progress. Yet, the ‘Golden Core Composition’ of the ghost spirit had progressed without pause, and it seemed she was getting faster and faster.

This smooth progress gave Song Shuhang a sense of peace.

Who knew, perhaps the ghost spirit would be able to complete the entire Golden Core Composition in a single try?

In the consciousness space where the Golden Core Composition was being created, the ghost spirit’s hand danced around, and the magnificent ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’ composition gradually appeared on the ‘Royal Blood Demon Core’.

However… there was still a large gap at the center of the core.

What should be used to fill in this gap?

Song Shuhang’s heart thumped, and he thought of a possibility—it couldn’t possibly be the disaster that destroyed the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, right?

If he were to draw that catastrophe, wouldn’t it be a little bit too much for Pavilion Master Chu’s heart?

As soon as he thought of this, the ghost spirit’s fingers were already on the move.

A giant ‘half black, half white’ tree was drawn at the center of the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion.

The combined Thriving and Withering Trees?

The giant tree that Pavilion Master Chu Two was born from?

Sure enough, it was because of that curse… Even the Thriving and Withering Trees made their appearance.

However, no matter how large the tree was, it couldn’t possibly occupy the entire blank area of the ‘Golden Core Composition’, right?

The ghost spirit fairy maiden drew a huge lotus flower in full bloom on the tree. Then, she began to draw inside this huge lotus.

After a while, a much smaller ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’ emerged on the lotus.

And in this small Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, there was also a giant ‘half black, half white’ tree with a lotus blooming on it.

Then… the ghost spirit continued to draw the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion in the lotus flower.

Song Shuhang felt that he was too naive.

It couldn’t really be done in one go if it went on like this… Song Shuhang felt that the ghost spirit fairy maiden could go on with this forever.

Once upon a time, there was a lotus flower in which was a Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion. Inside the pavilion was a giant tree on which was blooming a lotus flower; inside this flower was another Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion in which was a giant tree…

Oh no, it’s an endless loop.

Hello, your brain has entered an endless loop and crashed, please restart.

Song Shuhang looked up at the sky.

Though her face was still unclear and blurry, her lips were beautifully curled up in a slight smile… The ghost spirit fairy maiden drew very happily.

More importantly, with her strength of the Sixth Stage Realm, she could draw a picture of the world on a grain of sand.

Only the heavens knew when her infinitely looping ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’ would be finished.

Song Shuhang only knew that while he was thinking, the ghost spirit had already managed to draw six Crystal-Clear Water Pavilions.

He didn’t dare to stare at this ‘Royal Blood Demon Core’ now. After watching too much, he felt the illusion of countless Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion appearing in front of him.

Song Shuhang looked up at the sky.

Can any of my Golden Core Compositions be normal?

At this time, the eyes of the virtuous lamia, who had been floating above Song Shuhang’s head, shone brightly. It seemed that she’d gotten some inspiration and made up her mind.

She sneaked into Song Shuhang’s body, and went all the way to his last small dantian area, the ‘Dragon Horn Dantian’.

She went in front of the ‘Ancient Nether Dragon Soul’, stretched out her hand, and touched the dark-gold fat version of Song Shuhang.

Then, she went into the space of the ‘Golden Core Composition’.

“Huh? Wait, Fairy @#%×. Did you make a mistake in the order?” Song Shuhang called out within his consciousness—although he couldn’t pronounce her name in the real world, he could still do it in his mind.

The ghost spirit fairy maiden had chosen the ‘Royal Blood Demon Core’. According to the order by which they appeared, shouldn’t the next core be the core reactor? Despite that, the virtuous lamia directly went to the last golden core, the ‘Ancient Nether Dragon Soul’.

She was not doing things in order!

This made Song Shuhang uncomfortable… Neatness and orderliness were a virtue.

However, the virtuous lamia had already entered a special state.

In the world of the ‘Golden Core Composition’, the shape of the ‘Ancient Nether Dragon Soul’ had changed. It became a ball with dragon scales on it.

On this ball, there were no ‘dragon patterns’ or ‘colors’, nor were there bloodstains that could take the place of ‘paint’ for the Golden Core Composition.

However, when the virtuous lamia’s fingers fell on the dragon scale ball, Song Shuhang’s ‘divine sense’ was drawn over, and strands of mental energy were used as ‘paint’ for the Golden Core Composition of this ‘dragon scale ball’.

The virtuous lamia began to paint.

Song Shuhang stared at her fingers.

The virtuous lamia seemed to be very professional. When she painted, she first placed a dot, and then used that dot as the center to continuously draw one line after another.

This style of painting reminded Song Shuhang of some professional painters that started from a sketch when drawing their paintings.

As expected of the ‘Flower of the Ancient Heavenly City’. Fairy @#%× is absolutely stunning when it comes to painting.

Song Shuhang became curious in his heart.

What kind of ‘Golden Core Composition’ was she going to make?

Based on her experiences, the most likely one seemed to be the ‘Ancient Heavenly City’ or a part of it… Perhaps Cheng Lin’s Jade Lake Immortal Realm?

If it were the Ancient Heavenly City, that would be a pity.

…He still had a complete draft of the Ancient Heavenly City Golden Core Composition [Heavenly Emperor Edition] in his mind. He’d even made a backup for it in his mind so that he could use it whenever he wanted.

He had thought about modifying the Heavenly Emperor’s composition, and then using it for his life-bound whale core.

The Ancient Heavenly City composition was top-notch. If it were combined with Song Shuhang’s own life experience and transformed, he would be able to compose an Ancient Heavenly City in his own style.

However… when it came to borrowed things, even if he did get to experience the same feelings and experiences through the dreamland, in the end, they weren’t truly his.

He always felt that there would be something lacking if he were to draw the Ancient Heavenly City on his life-bound whale core.

Therefore, Song Shuhang was still hesitating to do so.

Song Shuhang softly said, “Perhaps, it would be a good thing for the virtuous lamia to paint the Ancient Heavenly City on the small golden core. Then I wouldn’t have to worry about it. As expected, I need to create a Golden Core Composition of my own on my life-bound whale core…”

In fact, he already had some ideas for the composition on his life-bound whale core.

He could use the ‘Inner World’ as the basis… and even combine Senior White Two’s Netherworld Realm and the scholarly faction’s world of the golden lotus, and then paint the seniors and fellow daoists of the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’.

The Nine Provinces Number One Group was what had allowed him to step into the world of cultivation, and he had determined it to be something he had to add to the life-bound whale core.

“So, paint as much as you want, Fairy @#%×. No matter what you paint, I will support you. Even if you paint the Ancient Heavenly Court, I won’t…” In the next moment, Song Shuhang froze.

For the Golden Core Composition on the ‘Ancient Nether Dragon Soul’, the virtuous lamia was continuously drawing dots, drawing lines that branched out from those dots, and then repeating the same process.

Connected together, countless dots and lines filled the whole ‘Ancient Nether Dragon Soul’.

It wasn’t the draft for the composition, nor was it some kind of sketch.

With the aura of a great master, the virtuous lamia was purely drawing dots and lines that formed a network.

“…” Song Shuhang.

The virtuous lamia in the composition space seemed to sense Song Shuhang’s thoughts. She raised her head at a 45-degree angle, blinked, and then continued to bury her head in the ‘Ancient Nether Dragon Soul’, drawing the dots and lines happily.

Looking at the momentum, she was going to fill Song Shuhang’s Ancient Nether Dragon Soul with a dense network of dots and lines!

Song Shuhang looked up at the sky again.

At least the ghost spirit fairy maiden drew a scene like the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’. But Fairy @#%×… what is this thing you’re drawing?

Could it be that she was waiting for the final stroke, and using some strange sorcery to turn the whole messy picture of ‘dots and lines’ into a dazzling masterpiece?

“Yioyo~ Idiot.” Fairy Creation’s voice rang in Song Shuhang’s ears.

Song Shuhang curiously asked, “Fairy Creation, did you see anything interesting in the picture?”

Fairy Creation responded, “I have a point~ I have a line~ Unh~ Lines and points!”

“…” Song Shuhang.

Fairy Creation continued, “I have a line~ I have a dot~ Unh~ Dots and lines!”

“…” Song Shuhang.

Fairy Creation added, “I have a dragon~ I have a network~ Unh~ Dragon Network!”

“Dragon Network?” Song Shuhang instantly came to a realization. The points and lines that were being drawn by the virtuous lamia were following a pattern—they weren’t random doodles.

She was drawing the Dragon Network?

No… That can’t be right.

Like Song Shuhang, the virtuous lamia had only just made contact with the ‘Dragon Network’.

What she was drawing was not the ‘Dragon Network’, but something very similar to the ‘Dragon Network’ in a sense.

“The Virtuous Network.” Song Shuhang suddenly realized.

He once used the power of the virtuous lamia to enter this vast and endless network.

Currently, Senior ‘Sage Monarch Melon Eater’ was roaming in that network.
