Chapter 1705 I“ll be leaving my sorrow to youOver his entire life, Slow-Witted Song only shed 8 tears due to strong emotions.
Song Shuhang lifted the gem, and placed it in front of him to have a good look at it.
He suddenly said, “It’s truly amazing.”
“???” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Song Shuhang said, “When I was a child, I heard that the tears of a mermaid could become pearls. I’ve always had this thought in mind that if there really were mermaids, then you’d be able to make a good amount of money if you were to sell their tears. And now I found out that Slow-Witted Song’s tears could actually turn into gems… They should be able to go for a lot of money, right?”
“…” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
It really wanted to cut apart Song Shuhang’s brain to get a look at how it was wired.
Song Shuhang added, “In addition, seeing the result of the secret appraisal technique, and knowing that Slow-Witted Song was beaten to tears 92 times, makes my heart feel good. Even though this isn’t the first time I’ve seen such news, seeing it makes me quite happy.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “Do you have a grudge against Slow-Witted Song?”
Song Shuhang replied, “Not really. But because of him, I’ve been beaten up by a number of big shots in the past. As such, I’m very fond of hearing news of him having been beaten to tears.”
He looked at the gem from all angles.
Song Shuhang curiously said, “This tear of Slow-Witted Song should be the opportunity for my finishing touch. But, how do I use it?”
The secret appraisal technique had not told him how to activate this ‘gem’.
Song Shuhang thought for a while, then said, “Should I swallow it?”
After learning the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique, he could even eat ‘spirit beast crystal’ as snacks with the ❮Whale Swallowing Technique❯. Because of that, Song Shuhang had started seeing ‘gem-like’ objects as snacks.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Are you not afraid of indigestion?”
Song Shuhang said, “With the Whale Swallowing Technique, digestion has basically stopped being a problem. But when I think about how this is Slow-Witted Song’s tear, I feel like I should forget about it.”
How about I crush it?
No, no… This is something from Pavilion Master Chu Two. She has lent it to me, so if I destroy it, she might come to hunt me down.
“It seems like I’ll have to appraise it again, and see if I missed anything.” Song Shuhang stretched out his hand again, and placed it on the tear.
Appraise. This time, I need a clue on how to use this tear! Song Shuhang said in his mind.
The secret appraisal technique was activated again, and his smoky state lost some ‘blood’ as waves of pain surged in his mind.
Success, there really are more clues for me to get!
[“Beep~” Hello, the number of times you have used the ‘Dark Night Time Ring’ this month has reached the limit~ Please wait until next month for the reset of usage instances, or recharge to get more usage instances.]
“…” Song Shuhang.
He could feel the deep malice coming from his ‘secret appraisal technique’.
Look at my mouth, “F-*-c-k~ Y-o-u~”.
Song Shuhang cancelled the smoky mode, put his gloves back on, then held the tear and studied it.
He couldn’t crush it, nor could he swallow it.
So what should he do?
After thinking for a while, an idea came to his mind. He decided to pour some ‘spiritual energy’ into the tear as it was a custom for cultivators.
No matter what treasure it was, if you couldn’t figure out what its effect was, you could try injecting some spiritual energy into it and see what happens. Spiritual energy was capable of all kinds of things.
And so, Song Shuhang held the tear gem, and circulated the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ to send a strand of spiritual energy into it.
The tear gem was like a sponge, absorbing Song Shuhang’s spiritual energy and mental energy.
Afterward, a sadness that could not be described with words surged in Song Shuhang’s heart.
Song Shuhang’s nose burned as tears began to stream down his face involuntarily.
Tears kept on falling, falling on Scarlet Heaven Sword.
“What’s wrong with you?” Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword was baffled. In addition, the huge teardrops falling on its body were making it feel very uncomfortable.
“I’m sad. I suddenly want to cry. It feels like I’ve lost control of my tears, and I just feel like crying,” Song Shuhang said while pearl-like tears continued falling.
While he was speaking, he suddenly burst into even more tears.
He wailed bitterly and loudly, speaking with a voice filled with sorrow.
Fairy Creation turned her head, and looked at Song Shuhang in confusion.
After a while, she tried to reach out and pat his head.
Song Shuhang said, “Don’t, don’t pat me~ Wuuu~~”
There were times when people who were in grief would end up crying even more when others comforted them.
The more Fairy Creation patted Song Shuhang, the more sorrow there was in his cries. His tears burst out, and he couldn’t stop them from coming out.
Song Shuhang said, “Fairy, don’t pat me~ Wuuuu~ I can’t stop crying if you continue patting me.”
Upon hearing this, Fairy Creation’s little hand paused slightly.
After a while… She couldn’t help but reach out and stroke Song Shuhang’s head. “Song~ Don’t cry~ Don’t cry~”
While comforting Song Shuhang, there was a happy expression on her face.
The more she comforted him, the more sadly he would cry… and this made her even happier. With that, she began comforting Song Shuhang in a different way. If he didn’t want to be patted, then she simply had to switch to stroking.
“…” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
When an adult man cried like this, Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword felt that it couldn’t bear it.
It raised itself and prepared to leave Song Shuhang to avoid being wet by his tears.
“Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, don’t go~ Wuuu~ Don’t go.” Song Shuhang cried bitterly. He reached out, firmly grasped Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, and used the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯ on it.
“…” Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword.
After a while, Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Ten instances of ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯, then turn your head to the side. Don’t drop your tears on me. What if I get rusty?”
“Wuuuu~ Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, how could you possibly get rusty,” Song Shuhang said, but he still turned his head and faced the other way. At the same time, he used the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯ on Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword was satisfied, and continued to lay on Song Shuhang’s lap.
When Song Shuhang turned his head away and cried, he ended up facing Senior White’s clone.
Senior White’s clone was sleeping soundly, but was awakened by Song Shuhang’s loud crying. He opened his eyes in discomfort, and looked at Song Shuhang.
Then, he saw Song Shuhang looking like he was in great pain. At the same time, Fairy Creation was comforting him with a happy smile on her face, while Scarlet Heaven Sword lay on his lap, and enjoyed the instances of the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯ being sent its way.
“!!!” Senior White’s clone.
What in the world did I wake up to? Did I open my eyes the wrong way today?
Song Shuhang said, “Senior White, you’re awake, wuuu~”
“…” Senior White’s clone.
Am I having a nightmare?
If it’s a nightmare, then I simply have to close my eyes and change dreams.
And so, Senior White’s clone closed his eyes.
“Senior White, wuuu~ Is there any way to stop my crying?” Song Shuhang implored the almighty Senior White for help.
Senior White’s clone sighed. “I’ve really got no choice here, huh. I can’t sleep if you’re crying like this.”
He took off his blanket, and tossed the ‘black lotus’ away.
Then, he leaped slightly, and descended to Song Shuhang’s side.
Senior White’s clone said, “First, tell me what happened.”
Song Shuhang sobbed, telling Senior White what had happened.
Senior White’s clone took the ‘tear gem’ in Song Shuhang’s hand, and tried to send a trace of spiritual energy into it.
The tear gem shone slightly, but it didn’t have any effect on him.
Senior White returned the gem to Song Shuhang.
“Waaaah~” Song Shuhang sobbed with even more sorrow.
Senior White’s clone guessed, “It seems that you resonated with this ‘tear gem’. This gem is a teardrop that its owner shed when he was extremely sad. After you resonated with it, it was equivalent to experiencing the sadness the owner felt when he had cried back then.”
Song Shuhang cried, and asked, “How do I end this?”
Senior White said, “Generally speaking, you only need to cry it out for a while, until the resonance ends. Otherwise, if your consciousness is able to further resonate with this gem, you might be able to end it sooner after you thoroughly understand the grief of its owner.”
Fairy Creation reached out and gently wiped Song Shuhang’s tears for him. “Don’t cry~ It’s ok~”
Song Shuhang cried with even more sorrow. When he cried, he didn’t forget to use the ❮Saber-Nurturing Technique❯ on Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Senior White’s clone felt that these three were utterly hopeless.
“I’ll give it a try.” Song Shuhang gathered his mental energy, and allowed his divine sense to resonate with the gem.
[The Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion was destroyed.]
[I was too late.]
[I was not there when she needed me the most.]
One thought after another was transmitted from the gem to Song Shuhang’s mind.
Along with the sorrow, there was also a terrible hatred. This was the only time in Slow-Witted Song’s life when he cried from grief. It was the pain he felt when he learned that the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion was destroyed.
The more one laughed merrily and without a care while seeking death, the worse it would be when their emotions truly burst out, with them losing all control over their emotions.
If he was given a chance, even if he had had to crawl a distance of hundreds of millions of miles to get to the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion to stop the disaster from befalling it, he would have done so.
As this sorrow was shared, Song Shuhang’s heart was instantly flooded with insights.
Insights related to the finishing touch.
Song Shuhang’s consciousness automatically appeared before the Golden Core Composition [The Limitless Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion].
He reached out, and touched the last dot.
This ‘dot’ perfectly embodied the concept of ‘limitless’.
It was infinite and with no limits.
No matter how many times it was enlarged, the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’ at this ‘dot’ would loop indefinitely.
The finishing touch was added with one stroke.
With that, the golden core transformed into a Lustrous Golden Core, shining with lustrous color.
With the addition of the finishing touch to this small golden core, Song Shuhang’s seven small golden cores were now all Lustrous Golden Cores.
The seven small golden cores lit up one by one, connected with each other, and began to resonate.
Song Shuhang’s consciousness withdrew from the Golden Core Composition space.
Before he knew it, he had stopped crying.
The tears had dried, leaving only tear marks on his face.
[I’ll be leaving my sorrow to you, I hope you like it.
