Chapter 1763 Senior White“s way of handling things“Indeed,” Song Shuhang said. “Anyway, I didn’t expect that Young Master Hai would actually get the Demon Emperor’s inheritance.”Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “If he were allowed to develop normally, he might become another Demon Emperor.”
If Song Shuhang hadn’t come to the Black Dragon World, then Demon Emperor Hezhi’s plans might have succeeded. And if so, he would have replaced the Dragon Network, taken control of the ‘Black Dragon World’, and simultaneously become in charge of the ‘Ancient Nether World’.
After becoming the master of these two worlds, he would already be above the Immortal Realm, merely one step away from becoming an existence on par with the ‘ruler of the Netherworld’. He might eventually have the opportunity to get a peek at ‘eternity’.
At that time, as the Demon Emperor’s inheritor, Young Master Hai would be destined to have a bright future.
Song Shuhang said, “As expected of Young Master Hai, my mortal enemy.”
He recalled their first encounter. At that time, Young Master Hai was posing as an elder of the ‘Blood Saber Sect’, plotting against Su Clan’s Seventh and Sixteenth.
Back then, he gave off the vibe of someone who had the entire world in the palm of his hand. If you were to only look at how he looked, he would appear to have an exceptional temperament, as graceful as jade. He was the kind of existence who could make countless girls’ hearts go aflutter with a smile.
His style was one that Song Shuhang dreamed of having.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “Is it appropriate to just let him go like that?”
Song Shuhang nodded, and said, “It doesn’t matter, he can’t escape… Also, maybe I can get some clues about the Demon Emperor’s inheritance from his body.”
Soft Feather asked curiously, “Senior Song, did you do something to him?”
Song Shuhang shook his head. “No, it should be the doing of the Demon Emperor’s inheritance.”
In addition… Demon Emperor Hezhi’s inheritance was among the best demonic inheritances. Although Song Shuhang did not cultivate the demonic path, he could still use it for reference. When it came to cultivation knowledge, he was truly quite lacking.
After he finished reading it for reference, he could sell the ‘Demon Emperor’s inheritance’ to the seniors in the group in exchange for spirit stones to pay off his debt. There were several friends of Fairy Dongfang Six in the group who were actually members of demonic sects.
Afterward, Song Shuhang’s huge projection also withdrew from the ‘inheritance space’.
He, Soft Feather, Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, and Lady Onion were now in the Demon Emperor’s Dragon Network Node.
A large portion of this Dragon Network Node had been blown up by the Heavenly Punishment.
Later, when the Demon Emperor faced off against Lady Kunna and Song Shuhang, the Demon Emperor entered a near-death state, and could no longer maintain this Dragon Network Node, thereby causing most of the node to collapse.
What was left of it was supported by the demonic god pillars left behind.
At this time, Song Shuhang was standing in front of a tall and slender demonic god pillar, the one corresponding to the Demon Emperor’s inheritance. It was through this demonic god pillar that Song Shuhang was able to enter the ‘inheritance space’ Young Master Hai was in.
Song Shuhang asked, “Dragon Network Assistant, do these demonic god pillars have the mark of the Demon Emperor?”
On his shoulder, the Dragon Network Assistant nodded, and said, “Yes, every demonic god pillar has a mark. This means that Demon Emperor Hezhi is still alive. Moreover, every single one of these demonic god pillars possesses a restraining power against me, especially the ones forged to specifically target the Dragon Network.”
This was also why the Dragon Network’s energy couldn’t destroy the demonic god pillars.
Song Shuhang asked, “If I put them in the Inner World, could my Inner World be detected or even locked on to by the Demon Emperor?”
He really wanted this batch of demonic god pillars, especially this slender demonic god pillar through which he could monitor Young Master Hai.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Although your Inner World is of a very high level, and is the product of a Wielder of the Will, it has yet to complete its evolution. It is similar to the ‘Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber’ in this manner. If you were to place the demonic god pillars inside it, I speculate that there is a high chance that the Demon Emperor will be able to spy on your Inner World.”
This was true for many of the things made by Wielder of the Will Striped Dragon. He made many experimental products, and even if they were acquired, they still needed to evolve again and again. Nobody knew what exactly it was that Wielder of the Will Striped Dragon wanted to do.
Song Shuhang said, “In that case, we should transfer them over to Senior White Two’s world of the black lotus first.”
If the Demon Emperor had the balls, he should go straight to Senior White Two’s lair!
Senior White Two’s main body was slumbering in the giant cocoon, which was still in the world of the black lotus.
Song Shuhang’s plan was to prevent himself from suffering further losses.
He then said, “But… how am I supposed to pull out these demonic god pillars?”
He tried opening the Inner World and forcibly collecting the demonic god pillars, but the demonic god pillars and the Dragon Network Node were fused together, and he wasn’t able to transfer them.
This was the case for most magical treasures forged by peak Immortals—they would make it such that these treasures were able to resist ‘spatial forces’ so that they couldn’t be forcibly taken away through such means.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword replied, “When it comes to things like these demonic god pillars, the only way to bring them away is by having the owner uproot them, or smashing them to pieces. Regardless, it’s going to be very troublesome.”
Soft Feather said, “How about we go and ask the other seniors?”
Song Shuhang said, “Senior White Two is busy trying to take over the Ancient Nether World right now, so it wouldn’t be good to disturb him. Moreover, as you should know, I can’t control myself in my current state. As such, I don’t dare to see him temporarily, as I’m afraid I might say the ultimate death-seeking line out loud.”
Soft Feather looked puzzled. “What line?”
Song Shuhang waved his hands repeatedly, and said, “Don’t ask, Soft Feather. Don’t ask. If you insist on asking, I might not be able to stop myself from answering. And if I say it out loud, I’ll be a goner. And things will end with a mere ‘hamster running wheel’.”
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “You’re actually able to restrain your desire to seek death. Shuhang, it seems like you’ve made some progress.”
Song Shuhang said triumphantly, “I told you, I have some experience in restraining the Thrice Reckless Disease.”
Soft Feather said, “Then, let’s ask someone else. Right, I can try asking the Heavenly Emperor for help.”
Song Shuhang waved his hands repeatedly again. “The Heavenly Emperor is also big trouble! Leave the part of contacting seniors to me.”
After saying that, his consciousness dove into the Inner World to consult Pavilion Master Chu and Senior Turtle on the matter.
Soft Feather and Scarlet Heaven Sword squatted at the side.
Soft Feather asked softly, “Speaking of which, what is that ‘ultimate death-seeking line’ that Senior Song was referring to?”
She was curious. She recalled the many death-seeking experiences between Song Shuhang and Senior White, but she didn’t know which one was the ‘ultimate death-seeking line’.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “I don’t know this too well, either… I honestly feel that there isn’t an ‘ultimate death-seeking line’, just lines that are more death-seeking than the previous ones.”
Soft Feather said, “I feel the same.”
At this time, having found out that neither Pavilion Master Chu nor Senior Turtle could help him, Song Shuhang’s consciousness left the Inner World. Pavilion Master Chu didn’t know much about ‘demonic god pillars’… This was mainly because she was a shut-in. Ever since she recreated the ‘Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion’, she had pretty much always stayed inside the pavilion. As for Senior Turtle, it wasn’t too knowledgeable on matters regarding the demonic path. But if it came to knowledge on ice abilities related to the Great Northern Emperor, it was especially proficient.
“There isn’t an ultimate death-seeking line, just lines that are more death-seeking than the previous ones…? I completely agree!” Song Shuhang gave Scarlet Heaven Sword and Soft Feather a thumbs-up. “Actually, that ‘ultimate death-seeking line’ is a dark part of his history that might agitate him. However, saying that line wouldn’t actually be the ‘ultimate death-seeking thing’. I’ve got a bold idea in mind. I might be able to learn from Doudou, and make a song to sing it aloud.”
“???” Soft Feather.
“…” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Soft Feather and I were having a quiet discussion just now, why are you the one suddenly getting excited?
“The song can go something like this: Dangdang~ Dangdangdangdang~ Thumpthump~ Dingding~ Dangdang!!” Song Shuhang gave Soft Feather and Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword a demonstration.
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “Will it really be okay for you to sing like that?”
Song Shuhang said, “Don’t worry, it’ll be fine as long as I don’t step on a certain line.”
Soft Feather grinned. “Test again and again, feeling out the bottom line little by little.”
Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Eventually, you’ll step on that line.”
Song Shuhang stretched out his hand, and gently laid it on the slender demonic god pillar. “Rest assured, I’ve set boundaries in my mind. You don’t have to worry about me stepping on that line. By the way… I’ve discovered something.”
“?” Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword.
Song Shuhang continued, “Look, the length and thickness of this demonic god pillar is similar to that of a rod…”
Soft Feather quickly said, “Like Sun Wukong’s Golden Cudgel?”
Then, the virtuous lamia appeared, and said, “The famous Ruyi Jingu Bang?”
“Uh… What I meant was that it looked like a steel pipe.” Song Shuhang stretched out his hand, and placed it on the demonic god pillar. “It feels very suitable for pole dancing. Should I try it out and give everyone a show? I’ve watched it on TV in the past, and I should be able to do a short segment. My memory is very good now, and my physical fitness is just as good. I feel like I should be able to imitate the actual thing to about 80% or more.”
“Forget it, just thinking about you dancing makes me feel like my eyes are burning,” Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said. “It would be better to have Soft Feather dance.”
“I haven’t learned how to.” Soft Feather chuckled. “I’m not interested in dancing, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to learn.”
“Then perhaps some other time.” Afterward, Song Shuhang suddenly said, “Wait, I just got a good idea.”
He turned his head and looked at the Dragon Network Assistant. “Can the entire network node be removed?”
Song Shuhang had recalled Senior White’s way of handling things.
Since the ‘demonic god pillars’ could not be pulled out, then… Why not slice the entire ground and move the whole area away?
“Testing… Confirming order.” After a while, the Dragon Network Assistant replied, “Testing complete. It has been determined that the network node can indeed be removed, but this will cause damage to the Dragon Network. Do you want to execute this order? Yes/No.”
“Will the damage to the Dragon Network be within a tolerable range? And can it be healed?” Song Shuhang asked while hanging from the demonic god pillar. His current state was too strange. As long as he thought of something, his heart would become eager to follow, and he couldn’t wait to try it out.
What was taking place now was an example of this, with him suddenly wishing to give pole dancing a try.
The Dragon Network Assistant replied, “The damage can be healed, though that would require a long time.”
Song Shuhang said, “Then, go ahead.”
[Executing order, removing Dragon Network Node.]
Song Shuhang squeezed his chin, and said, “In addition, I should also try analyzing how the Demon Emperor left his inheritance.”
After all, he was currently preparing and setting up an inheritance for Scarlet Pupil.
Would constructing an inheritance ground similar to the Demon Emperor’s inheritance be impressive?
But would that scare the little guy?
