Chapter 1657: Good news for the lazy

“Not good, my ‘core reactor’ seems to be reacting to these pictures… It’s getting hotter and hotter,” Song Shuhang said with unease.

His core reactor appeared to have been stimulated, constantly releasing heat.

In just two breaths, Song Shuhang was sweating profusely—this kind of sensation was something he hadn’t experienced for a while.

Ever since he had begun cultivating, his body had learned to automatically adjust his body temperature so that the heat and cold wouldn’t invade his body. God knew how much he had saved in his air-conditioning electricity bill because of this.

But now, as his small golden core was stimulated and began heating up, his spiritual energy fell into turmoil, causing his face to be instantly covered in sweat.

Sweat dripped down his cheeks, dripping onto the floor of the balcony, letting out a sizzling sound.

This feeling of sweating was quite nostalgic.

“Not good, this water is poisonous!” The virtuous lamia turned her head, reciting lines from a TV series.

“…” Song Shuhang.

This is just sweat, ok? It’s just ordinary sweat. At most, its temperature is a little bit higher than normal, but it isn’t toxic, alright?

He stretched out his hand to wipe the sweat off his face, and silently circulated the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ to calm his restless ‘mechanical core reactor’.

The core reactor gradually subsided and stopped releasing heat. However, the Golden Core Composition [Star of Creation and Destruction] on it was still shining brightly.

Song Shuhang looked up at the little sun in the sky again.

The changes in the ‘core reactor’ were obviously related to the small sun in the sky.

The steel manifestation and the ‘core reactor’ were one.

Is another ‘Lustrous Golden Core’ on the way? Song Shuhang said in his mind—did his small golden cores make an appointment and plan when they were going to complete their ‘finishing touch’?

Meanwhile, Fairy Creation looked at Song Shuhang who was still sweating. After thinking about it, she stood up and went to him.

Then, she took out a handkerchief and handed it to Song Shuhang. “Song~ Sweat~”

“Thank you.” Song Shuhang took the handkerchief, and his heart felt warm… I didn’t expect Fairy Creation to be so considerate. I guess it’s as expected of someone from the scholarly faction?

Fairy Creation blinked, and then sang, “Song~ Little movie~ Lalala~ Body burning hot~ Sweat all over~ Do re mi fa~”

“!!!” Song Shuhang.

Fairy Creation, do you even know what you’re singing? Those lyrics suck, you know that?

The virtuous lamia turned her head, and sang, “Sol la si do~”

“…” Song ‘Needs Genuine Love and Care’ Shuhang.

Sure enough, I shouldn’t get my hopes up for these two fairies.

Song Shuhang sighed deeply, and said, “Just these two make me feel so exhausted. It definitely isn’t easy for Senior Yellow Mountain with him having managed the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ all this time.”

No wonder Senior Yellow Mountain was so respected in the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ and even in the cultivation circle. It wasn’t without reason.

In the small sun.

Those pictures were still playing slowly.

With the exception of Song Shuhang, the virtuous lamia, and Fairy Creation, the others in the Dragon Blood Tribe did not seem to notice the little movie playing in the small sun.

In the picture, the fish lair grew bigger and bigger, and the number of steel fish also increased. After growing into a huge school of fish, the fish split up, dividing into several schools of fish, and began to build new nests.

Collect resources, grow in number, build sub-bases; then continue on to collect resources, grow in number, build sub-bases… and so on.

The number of steel fish continued to grow larger and larger.

They collected all the energy and materials that they could, increased their number, and went out to form new fish lairs.

As long as a seed was dropped, it did not necessarily need water to grow. It could grow on its own. This really was a magical treasure tailor-made for lazy people, no?

Song Shuhang said, “Sure enough, it’s as I guessed. These steel fish must have encountered some kind of disaster during this period.”

In the pictures, the development of the steel fish was unprecedented. There were thousands of fish lairs, and the number of fish was uncountable. The energy they collected was more than enough for the ‘princess’ to perform the final sun boat ceremony.

The duration of the sun boat ceremony was ‘500 years’. In the pictures, the energy that was collected by the steel fish had long exceeded the amount needed for those ‘500 years’.

However, the small sun above the Black Dragon World did not have much energy. There was only one fish lair and a single batch of fish left… Needless to say, something big had to have happened at some point in time.

The movie in the small sun continued to play.

From the initial small fish lair and single school of steel fish to the scale that they ended up having in the pictures, only the heavens knew how long it took these strange steel fish to accomplish this. They faithfully followed the last order of their ‘princess’, waiting for her to one day return.

Song Shuhang said, “If I were to take this story and make it into a film, it would definitely be a very touching movie.”

In addition, Song Shuhang also noticed another thing.

In the pictures, the location of the fish lair and the steel fish was nowhere near the ‘Black Dragon World’.

The location where they first collected resources was in the vast starry sky… Like in the main world, there was a vast starry sky that contained countless planets from which the steel fish could collect countless resources.

The steel fish and their fish lair had become a huge force, one that could even be considered an empire.

“What kind of disaster could make it so that only a single lair and single small school of fish was left of such a huge empire?” Song Shuhang wondered.

Was it a doomsday-type disaster?

Or was there a certain super-powerful person who felt like hunting down the steel fish?

The pictures in the small sun continued to change.

Finally, the part that Song Shuhang wanted to see appeared.

A huge black dragon appeared in the picture. Its wings covered the sky and the earth, with a size comparable to a small planet.

The Black Dragon of the Black Dragon World! Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up.

The black dragon had passed by near the ‘school of steel fish’.

Song Shuhang wondered, “Could it be that the black dragon destroyed this school of steel fish?”

But… it couldn’t be.

Neither the black dragon nor the steel fish interfered with each other. From beginning to end, neither side paid attention to the other.

The steel fish continued to execute the orders left behind by their ‘princess’.

The black dragon simply passed by, flying past the steel fish.

It was as if the two sides had not seen each other at all.

Or in other words, the two seemed to be in different ‘dimensions’.

They could not interfere with each other.

The black dragon passed the steel fish and disappeared.

The steel fish seemed not to have noticed the passing of the black dragon at all, continuing to collect resources, grow in number, and build fish lairs in an orderly manner.

Then, on a certain day, all the fish lairs and steel fish suddenly stopped.

Song Shuhang said, “Their memory of the [Princess] disappeared.”

This was the information shared by the steel manifestation.
