Chapter 1701 A generation gap of millions of years is unsalvageableAhhhh~ I’m dying! Today, Scarlet Pupil got to witness his own death.
Probably to make him die faster, when Fairy Creation pulled her sword out, she did so forcefully.
His blood was all over the place!
At this time, Scarlet Pupil’s soul silently floated above his physical body, watching himself die.
“Is this how death feels?” Scarlet Pupil’s soul whispered. The pain from the sword piercing his chest was still clear in his mind.
This was completely different from the deadly experiences in Mister’s illusions.
Sure enough, death really did need one to personally experience it in order to realize just how terrifying and frightening it was… However, this extreme horror brought him inexplicable pleasure.
“Fairy Creation, why did you stab Scarlet Pupil?” Song Shuhang said anxiously. He was in his primordial soul state at the moment, so he did not have any ‘Resurrection Gold Coins’ on him. In addition, the Black Dragon World blocked his connection with his Inner World, so he had no way of transferring anything through his Inner World to help.
Without a resurrection magical treasure, Scarlet Pupil would die for real.
Fairy Creation tilted her head. “Didn’t he ask for death himself?”
“But I don’t have any resurrection magical treasures on me. Scarlet Pupil will really die at this pace,” Song Shuhang said, and smiled wryly. It appeared that there was quite the generation gap between Fairy Creation B’s thinking and his. This generation gap was so big that he felt like he couldn’t communicate with her at all.
Scarlet Pupil softly said, “Yes, I really will die at this pace. I don’t have any of Mister’s means of resurrection…”
After a while…
“Mister, can you write my will for me?” Scarlet Pupil said, his voice trembling as he spoke.
At this moment, he seemed to be slightly scared.
The ‘despair of death’, as Song Shuhang called it, was shrouding his heart.
Is it because I’m too stupid that my reaction time is so slow? Scarlet Pupil silently said in his mind.
Fairy Creation said, “Do you finally know the horror of death?”
Scarlet Pupil replied, “Mm-hm, just thinking about dying leads me to think about how I will never see my parents, never see Big Brother Black Pupil again, and never be able to eat wing buckets anymore. A horrifying fear eats at my heart. However, this kind of despair… It’s wonderful.”
Fairy Creation tilted her head. “I can’t follow your thinking at all. Sure enough, there is a big generation gap between you and me.”
“Yes, and this super-large generation gap is at least tens of millions of years wide.” Song Shuhang sighed. He had sensed that Scarlet Pupil’s parents and the mages of the Dragon Blood Clan were quickly heading their way.
This was becoming rather troublesome.
“Little friend Shuhang, the age of a woman is a forbidden topic that must not be mentioned.” Fairy Creation turned her head, and said to Song Shuhang, “If you talk about age again, I won’t be able to stop myself from stabbing you.”
Song Shuhang responded, “I didn’t mention anything like that, though!”
Wasn’t she jumping topics a bit too much?
“You mentioned words vaguely related to my age. Women are very sensitive to things like this,” Fairy Creation said seriously. “And it’s especially so for a woman like me who is a little older, and has yet to marry.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
The generation gap was indeed too big. He didn’t know how to connect with the topics Fairy Creation was talking about.
Fairy Creation turned her head, and looked at Scarlet Pupil’s soul. “Well, now that you’ve experienced death… Are you satisfied?”
“Yes, I’m satisfied.” Scarlet Pupil’s soul nodded, and said, “It’s just that I’ve still got a lot of regrets in my life. There are a lot of things I’ve yet to finish, and I’m somewhat unwilling to leave just yet.”
“These regrets, they’re for you to resolve on your own in the future.” Fairy Creation clapped her hands gently, and the skirt on her body glowed with a brilliant white light, stretching out into a gorgeous white dress.
The dress she wore was one of those solemn ceremonial robes.
Fairy Creation said, “Little friend Shuhang, go stand in the eye of the Big Dipper Formation. Fellow Daoist Scarlet Heaven Sword, please move around the border formation. I plan on using a giant one.”
“?” Song Shuhang.
Fairy Creation said softly, “This young man is just an ordinary person… He hasn’t even reached the First Stage Foundation Establishment Realm yet. Even if he did ‘die’, as long as not that much time has passed, we will be able to save him with relative ease.”
Resurrecting an ‘ordinary person’ and resurrecting a ‘cultivator’ were two completely different concepts.
Given the right circumstances, it didn’t cost too much to bring an ordinary person back to life.
The secret elixirs of many ancient forces had the effect of bringing ordinary people back from the dead.
Legends about such elixirs, which were said to be able to save someone as long as they had a breath left in them, were the result of numerous kinds of treasures in the world of cultivation.
Scarlet Pupil’s eyes widened when he heard this. It turned out that he could survive, just like Mister.
It would be great if he could survive.
After all, he still had a lot of regrets. Moreover… It was only by living that he would be able to get the chance to enjoy the pleasure of ‘death’ again in the future.
“So you actually had a means of resurrection for him.” Song Shuhang let out a breath of relief.
Then, he asked another question. “Fairy, where’s the eye of the Big Dipper Formation?”
“???” Fairy Creation.
“Well, I haven’t ever learned about the Big Dipper Formation,” Song Shuhang said in embarrassment.
Fairy Creation said, “If my eyes aren’t failing me, your realm is…”
Song Shuhang replied, “I’m a Fifth Stage Realm cultivator with eight golden cores.”
Fairy Creation got agitated. “You’re in the Fifth Stage Realm, and you have never learned the Big Dipper Formation? How exactly did you cultivate? Did your teacher not impart you with any basic knowledge?”
For there to be such an irresponsible teacher in this world, how irritating!
Song Shuhang said, “Actually, I am a loose cultivator, so I don’t have a teacher.”
In addition, I’ve only been cultivating for six months. Song Shuhang did not say this line.
“…” Fairy Creation.
I keep on feeling that there’s something wrong with this. If this guy had never learned the Big Dipper Formation, just how did he transcend those tribulations and rise to the realm he’s at today?
Fairy Creation said weakly, “Forget it, I will guide you on where to stand. I will draw a circle around the formation eye, and you just have to stand there.”
Song Shuhang remarked, “You should have kept it simple from the start.”
“No matter what, you’re a dignified Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor. You should at least take the time to learn these basic pieces of knowledge.” Fairy Creation sighed.
Song Shuhang embarrassedly said, “I’m trying my best… Actually, it’s mainly because there are so many things I need to learn lately: the ancient language, the Lightning Drawing Technique of the Heavenly Master’s Basic Lightning Techniques, basic illusory techniques, and basic formation knowledge.”
“…” Fairy Creation.
Did I hear wrong just now? Besides the ancient language, did the rest of the things this guy mentioned contain the word ‘basic’ in them?
At the side, Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, who was floating in the air, didn’t say a word. Fairy Creation, you should stop talking about this heart-rending topic. If you inquire any further, your heart will be viciously rent!
Fairy Creation did not continue asking questions because of the urgent matter at hand.
She slightly stretched out her hand, and circled the eye of the ‘Big Dipper Formation’. “Stand in there and don’t move.”
“A galaxy-brain-level move.” Song Shuhang said quickly. Due to Fairy ＠＃％× and Fairy Creation snatching his lines every day recently, he instinctively went and snatched a line today.
“…” Fairy Creation.
What in the world are you saying?
Is the generation gap between myself and modern young men really so big?
Fairy Creation said, “Time is limited, so don’t move. Fellow Daoist Scarlet Heaven Sword, I’ll leave the rest to you. The sooner we perform this magical technique for resurrecting ordinary people, the better its effect will be.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword replied, “No problem.”
It then began to walk along the ‘Big Dipper Formation’.
Fairy Creation began to recite long chants in the ancient language. Following her chants, scholarly runes floated out and spun around her.
The gorgeous white dress and radiant scholarly runes made Fairy Creation even more beautiful.
“Ahhh, it hurts, it hurts!” At this moment, Scarlet Pupil’s body let out a series of screams, and then he slowly opened his eyes, stretching out his hand to clutch his chest. “This pain that acts on my body and soul at the same time simply doubles the feeling.”
“Fairy Creation, your magical technique is too powerful,” Song Shuhang said in surprise.
The magical technique had just begun to be performed, yet Scarlet Pupil had already come back to life!
It was truly worthy of being a magical technique of the scholarly faction; not only was it magnificent to see, but its effect was also heaven-defying.
It’s a pity that I have no fate with the scholarly faction.
“…” Fairy Creation.
Her fingers froze in the air, just about to press on the scholarly runes—her magical technique had just begun, and it hadn’t even taken effect yet.
In other words, Scarlet Pupil’s resurrection had nothing to do with her.
She fixed her gaze on Scarlet Pupil’s body, golden light flickered in her eyes, and she locked on to Scarlet Pupil with her consciousness, observing every change in his body.
The boy was clutching his chest where blood had long been drained from, but at this time, new life emerged from his body, filling his entire being.
Soon enough, his wounds began to heal.
Where the sword wound was, vitality transformed into silk threads that sutured the wound.
At the same time, his heart, which had been pierced clean through, began to recover.
It was as if he had an immortal body.
After his heart recovered, it began beating again.
It thumped powerfully, and with every beat, new blood was born out of thin air, and sent to all parts of Scarlet Pupil’s body.
His pale face began to turn rosy. Moreover, his complexion had changed entirely, from his original black skin to white.
This was why his face changed from pale to rosy.
With the continuous creation of blood, his cold body also regained its temperature.
Besides that, his hair grew unceasingly, and in the blink of an eye, his short hair grew to reach his legs.
His black hair was long and dense like a cloak, hanging behind him.
Besides the facial features still belonging to the original Scarlet Pupil, at this time, he seemed to be a completely different person.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Skylark?”
For an instant, Scarlet Pupil gave him the feeling that he was Skylark—to be precise, the dark-haired Skylark who had come back from the dead.
The Skylark at that time, just like Scarlet Pupil now, had a head full of black hair.
What kind of relationship was there between Black Pupil and Skylark?
