It was like seeing a prompt for a software update or that small red dot that appeared when you got a new message. When faced with this, people would tend to find themselves involuntarily clicking on it.
If it were left alone forever, an OCD patient would be unable to handle it.
“Hehe.” Song Shuhang smiled gently.
Did you think that I was actually going to click on it?
With the lessons I’ve learned in the past, this time, I will definitely not click on something like this.
There is a famous saying in the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’, [Reckless, but no more than Thrice].
In other words, for some things, you must keep count in your mind lest you reach the limit and court death.
After having his hands move on their own previously, he absolutely wouldn’t let that happen again.
Moreover, if his OCD was getting triggered by this little red dot… then he simply had to ignore this seventh small golden core of his.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Song Shuhang made up his mind, and withdrew from his seventh small dantian.
“Dragon Slaying Saber, click to receive!” As soon as he quit, he heard the virtuous lamia chanting lines in his ear. This line also came with powerful and rhythmic background music that boomed from the virtuous lamia’s body.
He turned his head and looked at Fairy @#%×. He saw her restless face, with her fingers slowly moving towards his back.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang said, “Don’t be reckless; we need to progress steadily. First, we need to get through the heavenly tribulation that the sixth small golden core, which has now become a small Lustrous Golden Core, brought about.”
The virtuous lamia could only withdraw her little hand.
At critical moments, she still cooperated with Song Shuhang.
However, after she retracted her hand, she said, “Dragon Slaying Saber, click to receive…”
“I know that ad, and I’ve played the game.” Song Shuhang sighed. “It took a lot of money from me.”
“Sigh.” The virtuous lamia sighed quietly.
This time, it was in her own voice.
The virtuous lamia looked up at the sky, and said, “If my divine weapon, Scarlet Heaven Sword, were still here, it would definitely understand what I mean.”
She used her own voice, which was pleasant to the ears and sounded wonderful.
Song Shuhang did not hesitate to point out the fault in her words. “No, that is not your divine weapon; that is Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s divine weapon. Although Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword says that Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven is its previous master at times, in actuality, it has always been Senior Scarlet Heaven’s divine weapon. That has never changed.”
“Sigh.” The virtuous lamia sighed again, and then she said, “The finishing touch of the Golden Core Composition [The Connected World] is very important. The advantages that come out of clicking it outweigh the disadvantages. If you miss the chance to add the ‘finishing touch’ this time… Who knows if you’ll be able to come across this opportunity again within your lifetime.”
“!!!” Song Shuhang.
The virtuous lamia added, “Think about your decision seriously. That’s all I have to say.”
Song Shuhang was suddenly shocked, and said, “Fairy Waiting for a Promise, this should be the first time I’ve ever heard you say so much.”
Moreover, she was clearly not pretending to be a fool and only using lines from her library. It was her own self who was speaking.
Even the words ‘hard to come by’ weren’t enough to describe this event.
“Dragon Slaying Saber, click to receive!” The virtuous lamia’s expression changed, and she began to recite lines again. When she said this, the background music played from her body once again.
“…” Song Shuhang asked, “Can’t you just speak properly?”
The virtuous lamia paused for a while, and after a moment, she suddenly assumed a white crane’s wings stretched pose. “But I feel like I can still save myself…? [Song Shuhang’s voice].”
“There’s no saving you. Just wait for death and say goodbye [Scarlet Heaven Sword’s voice].” Fairy Creation suddenly appeared, assumed the same posture, and quickly snatched the following line.
“!!!” The virtuous lamia.
She turned her head stiffly and slowly… looking like a robot while doing so, and her gaze turned to look at Fairy Creation in shock.
Were you not only interested in snatching Song Shuhang’s lines?
Why are you also snatching my lines?
How can this be?!
Fairy Creation was in that ‘one-legged’ pose, and her legs were bare—one would even be able to see her cute toes twitching on the ground. Afterward, she turned her body around, turning her back to the virtuous lamia as she faced Song Shuhang. “Song… Idiot, doremifa~”
Song Shuhang slowly raised his hand and touched his heart.
Mom, my heart aches so much.
My heart is so tired that I really want to retire.
I think I might need two ‘quick-acting heart-relief pills’.
At this moment… he felt that he could understand Senior Yellow Mountain better.
After I go back, I must be a well-behaved member in the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’. That way, Senior Yellow Mountain will have less to worry about.
By the side…
Lady Kunna and the old tribal chief froze for a while before suddenly applauding.
Although they couldn’t understand what Mr. Shuhang and his two ‘soul pet’ ladies were talking about, it looked like the two ladies were performing.
And the performance was very good. Naturally, Lady Kunna and the old tribal chief would not be stingy with their applause.
Song ‘Heart Hurts Even More, Like Getting Stabbed, Even Heart-Relief Pills Can’t Save My Heart’ Shuhang.
Lady Kunna asked, “By the way, Mr. Shuhang, did something happen while you were unconscious?”
After Song Shuhang heard this, he silently looked at Lady Kunna, and then said, “After the class transfer ceremony ended, you disappeared. As for me… I was left behind in the ‘class transfer space’. Lady Kunna, did you perhaps forget to bring me out?”
“Eh?” Lady Kunna was dumbfounded. “How is that possible? I was the host of the ceremony, so when I dismissed it, the ‘transfer space’ should automatically disperse. At that time, both of our consciousness should return to our bodies… So, something like me forgetting to bring Mr. Shuhang back out need not even be considered.”
“However, I really was left behind in the ‘class transfer space’,” Song Shuhang said. “I thought that you forgot to take me back, so I stayed in that space waiting for you to come in again and take me out. Then, I kept waiting there, but you never showed up, Lady Kunna.”
What a sad story.
“I, I’m sorry,” Lady Kunna said—although it wasn’t her fault, after hearing Song Shuhang’s description, she kept on getting the feeling that she had done something terrible to Mr. Shuhang.
The old tribal chief said, “Then, how did you come out, Mr. Shuhang?”
Song Shuhang squeezed his chin. “Later on, another figure appeared in the class transfer space. That figure had the exact same appearance as Lady Kunna. After she added me as an ‘ally’, the space collapsed, and I was sent out.”
As he spoke to this point, Song Shuhang recalled the strange Lady Kunna in the ‘class transfer space’. Song Shuhang was deeply impressed by her pair of red-golden vertical pupils.
The two red-golden vertical pupils were very beautiful… and very oppressive. The level of pressure it brought one appeared not to be any less than the Scholarly Sage’s ‘Impregnating Gaze’.
Lady Kunna asked, “This is the first time I’ve heard of this kind of thing. Then, Mr. Shuhang, have you changed your class?”
Song Shuhang shook his head.
Lady Kunna frowned, lost in thought.
The more abnormal things were—and the more she came across things she couldn’t understand—the more her curiosity was aroused. Constantly grasping new knowledge and exploring new mysteries were practically instinctual to scholars.
She opened her notebook, and quickly noted things down in it.
Later, Lady Kunna said, “Mr. Shuhang, let’s take a break first. I need to think about this matter. Hmm… After lunch, can you cooperate with me for a physical examination?”
“No problem,” Song Shuhang said.
Lady Kunna smiled, and said, “Then, see you later.”
She was going to contact several of her friends through the ‘Dragon Network’ to discuss what happened to Mr. Shuhang today. It would be for the best if she could summon some of her friends from the ‘small dragon scale world’ next door.
The old tribal chief smiled, and said, “Then I will have everyone’s meals arranged.”
After the old tribal chief and Lady Kunna left, Song Shuhang used his palm to prop up his cheek and began to think.
His consciousness sank into his seventh dantian again.
On the small golden core ‘Ancient Nether Dragon Soul’, the small dot was still flashing.
According to what Fairy ＠#%× said, if he missed the chance to add the finishing touch, he might never come by it in his lifetime. This was also the reason Fifth Stage cultivators in the world of cultivation would proceed with the addition of their ‘finishing touch’ as soon as they got the inspiration, regardless of whether they were ready or not.
Enlightenment was simply too ethereal. One would not know when it would come, nor if it would ever come. It was especially willful.
Furthermore, Fairy @#%× suggested that the advantages outweighed the disadvantages.
She would definitely not lie about this kind of matter.
After all, they were now regarded as a single entity.
“Dragon Slaying Saber, click to receive?” Song Shuhang chuckled, and his consciousness condensed into a human form, appearing beside the ‘ancient nether dragon soul’.
At this time, the ‘ancient nether dragon soul’ had transformed from a human figure into a spherical shape, and the red dot on its body flashed repeatedly in a very eye-catching manner.
Song Shuhang stretched out his hand and pointed at it. “I’m telling you in advance. If the attributes of the Dragon Slaying Sword are not to my liking… I won’t be able to do anything anyway”
His finger clicked on the dot.
It was the most important and central node in the Golden Core Composition [The Connected World].
While he stretched out his hand to click on the dot, the virtuous lamia had unknowingly appeared behind his consciousness. Her arm rested on Song Shuhang’s right hand, matching his actions.
With the tap of a finger, the finishing touch was added.
On the ancient nether dragon soul, the entire ‘Virtuous Network’ composition was activated.
Spiritual energy and mental energy, as well as the light of virtue from the virtuous lamia, started flowing in this ‘network’.
The ancient nether dragon soul underwent a change, and after a while, it turned into a black Lustrous Golden Core.
Song Shuhang’s physique was strengthened.
Song Shuhang’s spiritual energy was strengthened.
Song Shuhang’s divine sense was strengthened.
Once again, his entire being was reborn on a small scale.
The number of Holy Apes also increased again, reaching the auspicious number 33.
These were just the basic enhancements.
“Where’s the Dragon Slaying Sword?” Song Shuhang looked at the virtuous lamia.
The virtuous lamia disappeared.
In the next moment, Song Shuhang felt his consciousness… begin to spin frantically as if it had been sucked into a washing machine.
After a long time, this feeling of spinning faded.
Song Shuhang opened his eyes.
“Yo, Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song. You’re here again.” Sage Monarch Melon Eater’s voice sounded by his ear. “I didn’t expect to see you again… To see you again right before I ascend to the Ninth Stage, this is also fate.”
