There were many likes and replies under the video, and the number of views was even higher. Almost 30% of the students at the campus had already seen the video, and this number was bound to keep increasing.
Song Shuhang wiped the sweat off his forehead. Wasn’t Joseph ‘Guy’ Maupassant’s daughter also at Jiangnan College Town? How would she react after seeing the video?
As first thing, she would beat to death that Zhuge Yue that made the video public!
And as second thing, she would probably want to give a good beating to that ‘expert’ that taught her father those ‘Chinese Kung Fu’ moves, right?
Luckily, he didn’t tell Joseph his name when he taught him that ‘lost technique’. Otherwise, she would be already on her way.
In the afternoon, Song Shuhang diligently went to class. Recently, he hadn't attended too many lessons, and he felt a bit embarrassed about it.
Tubo came over and asked in a low voice, "Shuhang, where have you been for the past few days? You didn’t even return to the dormitory."
The nearby Lu Fei was also curiously looking at Song Shuhang. Whenever he would come to class, Lu Fei would sit beside him and take advantage of the cold air he was emitting.
"Recently, a friend of mine came over. I helped him find a house, and I had to go to his place a few times to give him a hand. I’ve been busy with that," Song Shuhang said with a smile. He said the truth—however, this ‘friend’ was a bit special.
Gao Moumou pushed up his glasses and said, "Shuhang, you shouldn’t miss the next lessons, because they will focus on the test held at the end of the term. The tests will be held on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th day of the month, and on July 6 we will have a day off. If you fail, you’ll have to take a make-up test, and that would be troublesome."
The test at the end of the term? F*ck. I had completely forgotten about it!
Song Shuhang rubbed his temples. After meeting the cultivators of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, his life had drastically changed. The refining of the body tempering liquid, the incident with Altar Master, the events at the Immortal Farming Sect and Moon Saber Sect, and also the meeting with True Monarch White... in a little more than a month, he had experienced incredible things that an average man wouldn’t be able to experience for his entire life. After all this, his mind had been sharpened quite a bit.
When he recalled these things, he wondered if these experiences were real or just a dream.
He had almost forgotten that he was still a university student and that the term would end soon, marking the start of the summer vacation. But before enjoying the summer vacation, he had to face the test at the end of the term.
He would have to thoroughly review the contents of the lessons in these days!
"Do you think you’ll be able to pass it?" Tubo came over and asked.
"Don’t worry. The final test isn’t enough to stop me," Song Shuhang said with confidence.
Li Yangde said with a smile, "Tubo said the same thing last year. Afterwards, he had to do the make-up test, and I had to stay behind to give him supplementary lessons."
"Cut me some slack, Yangde!" Tubo hammered Yangde with his fist.
Gao Moumou turned his head and asked, "So, do you plan to go somewhere during the summer vacation?"
Tubo said, "I haven’t decided yet. I will probably return home and spend some time in my father’s machinery repair shop as usual. He brought in many new models that I can enjoy for the whole summer."
It had to be said that now that Song Shuhang was here, the surrounding temperature had decreased quite a lot. It was very strange.
Li Yangde said, "I have to participate in a release conference. The program I’m developing with the others is almost complete. I’ll be busy with it for the next couple of months."
Gao Moumou’s face was disgusted as he said, "You two really don’t know how to enjoy life. Leaving aside machinery and programs, shouldn’t you go to different places and have some fun during summer vacation? Sandy beaches, highlands, snow-covered mountains, the boundless ocean, or small islands! Life is short, shouldn’t you have fun while you’re still young?"
Li Yangde looked at him in a strange manner and said, "That’s just wasting time. What’s even the point?"
"You’re hopeless! Of course there is a point!" Gao Moumou sighed with emotion as he face-palmed himself.
Tubo tilted his head and asked, "Alright, do you want to treat us?"
"Not me… it’s that Zhuge Zhongyang," Gao Moumou said with a smile. Then, he pointed his lips in Lu Fei’s direction when she wasn’t looking and shot a knowing glance at Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang immediately understood everything. It seemed that Zhuge Zhongyang had finally found a place for the appointment. Then, was he going to invite Lu Fei’s elder sister to have some fun by the sea?
"Have you already chosen the location? Do you need some help?" Song Shuhang asked.
"We were thinking of going toward the inner part of the East China Sea. There is a newly built artificial island there, and according to the rumors, it’s pretty good. Once we’re bored of staying there, we can visit the nearby countries. We can go wherever we want. However, let’s wait for the end of the test to speak of it," Gao Moumou said with a smile.
"Good. If you need help, you only have to ask," Song Shuhang replied.
During the afternoon class, all students were busy noting down everything the teacher was saying. The contents of this lesson were likely to appear on the test.
Song Shuhang was holding his chin and doing two things at the same time.
Firstly, he was revolving his <
Lu Fei quietly shot a glance at Song Shuhang. At first, she thought that he was earnestly listening to the teacher. But after looking more carefully, she saw that he seemed somewhat distracted. She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
After the lesson.
While his three roommates were putting away their things, Song Shuhang stretched himself.
"Shuhang, do you want to borrow my notes?" Lu Fei quietly asked.
"Ah? No need. I’ve memorized everything," Song Shuhang said with a smile.
"Alright. If you need them, just tell me," Lu Fei thoughtfully took back her notes. After thinking a bit, she held Song Shuhang’s arm and decided to return to the dormitory together with him.
The nearby Gao Moumou pushed up his glasses and said, "It seems there is something going on!"
"Do you still remember that scene at the ‘Ten Fragrances Fish Head’? Tsk, Tsk. Song Shuhang is such a hypocrite. He says one thing and does another. Now they’re even holding hands!" Tubo said in a low voice
Song Shuhang heaved a sigh. He decided to stay silent...
After separating from his roommates, Song Shuhang returned to Medicine Master’s multi-storied building.
Doudou wasn’t home. It seemed that he kept his end of the deal and went out to investigate that pretty boy with a muscular body. He would soon discover if the latter was a cultivator or just a normal person.
Senior White was sitting in front the computer, his fingers quickly typing on the keyboard.
"Senior, what are you looking for?" Song Shuhang thoughtlessly asked.
"I’m looking for all different kinds of things. Movies, novels, literary works, Chinese history, world history, and so on. I’ve been in meditation for more than 150 years, and I need to quickly catch up with everything that has happened in the meantime. I have to admit that acquiring information has become very easy thanks to the advent of the Internet and computers," Venerable White said with a smile. It wasn’t his first time closing up. Therefore, he had already encountered the problem of gathering information about the new world after coming out secluded meditation.
"What do you think of this world? How is it compared to that of 150 years ago?" Song Shuhang asked with a smile.
"Hm… science and technology advanced at a quick pace, but the price paid for that was also big. As for other things like novels and literary works, they’re actually better compared to 150 years ago. In this era, the humans’ way of thinking changed quite a bit, and there was a boom of new ideas," Venerable White silently nodded.
Novels and classics were present even in ancient times. Therefore, at least for now, Senior White found them more easy to accept rather than movies or the television.
"Haha," Song Shuhang nodded as he smiled. With the advent of webnovels, the creativity of the authors was getting bigger and bigger, to the point that it was out of control.
"However, there are a few things that are bothering me," Venerable White smiled as he narrowed his eyes.
"Why are some novels rushed or dropped midway?" Venerable White said with a smile.
"Well, let’s forget about it. Little Friend Shuhang, come here!" Venerable White turned the computer off and waved his hand at Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang arrived at his side somewhat confused.
Venerable White stretched his slender fingers and touched the ‘spirit-binding ice bead’ hanging around his neck, "A ghost spirit of the middle-rank or above is not half bad. You haven’t made a contract with it yet?"
"I was waiting for a senior to ask to help me with the contract," Song Shuhang replied, "When I received this ghost spirit, I didn’t even know if cultivators were real. And when I managed to obtain the materials for the ‘Five Elements’ Spirit Contracting Altar’, I hadn’t even completed my Hundred Days Foundation Establishment. And then, just as I managed to open my Heart Aperture and complete my Foundation Establishment, Senior Medicine Master had something to take care of and left this place. Therefore, I wasn’t able to find anyone to help me with the contract."
"If this is the case, I’ll give you a hand! After all, you have looked after me till now," Venerable White said with a smile. "Wait till tonight. The intensity of negative qi is at its peak between 11 PM and 1 AM . I’ll help you deploy the ‘Five Elements’ Spirit Contracting Altar’ formation. But as first thing, I’ll explain how the formation works and how you have to respond if the ghost spirit fights back."
"Good!" Song Shuhang said happily. He gently held the ‘spirit-binding ice bead’ hanging around his neck.
It was finally time to make a contract with the ghost spirit!
"Senior, with these materials I have, we can only use the formation twice," Song Shuhang said.
"Twice? Hm, it should be enough. But it’s not really important; these materials are rather easy to find. Even if you were to fail twice, I can lead you around the world to collect them," Venerable White said with a smile.
After hearing Senior White’s words, Song Shuhang was immediately relieved!
With a powerful figure backing you, you would be even more confident!
And at night, the chance of succeeding was even higher!
The appointed time was approaching. Soon, it would be a period within 11 PM and 1 AM.
Song Shuhang opened his eyes. He had just finished revolving his <
Senior White took out a robe covered with formations. Then, he stretched out his hand and changed them in a few places. Now, they looked even more perfect.
Afterwards, he placed the five elements stones at the five corners of the formation and a piece of wood struck by lightning in the middle. There were also many different materials that were placed according to their affinity with the various elements.
"Bring the spirit-binding ice bead here and place it on that piece of wood struck by lightning. Afterwards, use the formula I taught you and activate the formation," Venerable White reminded while holding some ‘saliva of ghost dragon’ in his hands.
Song Shuhang carefully placed the spirit-binding ice bead on the piece of wood struck by lightning.
Then, he recited the formula.
Venerable White seized the opportunity and opened the jar that contained the saliva of ghost dragon. Afterwards, he sprinkled the contents on the robe littered with formations and on the spirit-binding ice bead. Just as a drop of water falling onto hot iron, the saliva of ghost dragon immediately turned into mist after falling onto the spirit-binding ice bead.
After a while, the mist condensed and took the shape of that ghost spirit with a ‘small golden shield’!
