Chapter 1767 Yes, I“d be willingSong Shuhang sighed, and said, “Dragon Eye Gem? Actually, I am also a little sensitive to the words ‘eyeball’ and ‘pupil’.”He was sensitive to the words ‘fat ball’ because he absolutely couldn’t afford to provoke the other party. As for why he was sensitive to the words ‘eyeball’ and ‘pupil’, 70% of that was because of the Scholarly Sage, and the remaining 30% came from the ‘big-eyed planet’.
Lady Onion remarked, “The number of words you’re sensitive to isn’t low.”
“This is life. As we grow older, there will always be more and more taboo words in your heart,” Song Shuhang exclaimed, taking this opportunity to let out some frustration.
Soft Feather said, “Generally, treasures with names like this are of a pretty good level. And with this one being a part of a dragon’s body, it should be even better.”
Doudou rolled his eyes. “Do you really believe that what we’re talking about is a dragon’s eye? Can it not be a longan, that fruit similar to lychees? It’s very tasty.”
Song Shuhang reminded Doudou, “Longans can be eaten, but Fairy Lychee cannot be eaten.”
Doudou added, “I can’t remember if Longan is a daoist priest or a fairy maiden… Anyway, Fairy Lychee can’t be eaten, so neither can Longan, regardless of whether they’re a daoist priest or a fairy maiden.”
Soft Feather asked curiously, “So, can the Dragon Eye Gem be eaten?”
“…” Scarlet Heaven Sword.
WTF, how can you guys communicate with the conversation jumping from one topic to another every few lines? Ordinary people wouldn’t be able to converse with you at all.
The Dragon Network Assistant earnestly replied, “The Dragon Eye Gem can’t be eaten.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Can it be put in my eye socket?”
Dragon Network Assistant continued, “No.”
Soft Feather asked, “Then, can it be planted as a seed?”
“No,” the Dragon Network Assistant said—fortunately, the little assistant wasn’t programmed to have a temper.
Doudou said, “If you can’t do any of that, what can it be used for?”
The Dragon Network Assistant explained, “Every 1,000 years, Dragon Eye Gems emerge from the eyes of the Black Dragon, and about 13 are produced every time. These gems would then be given to the ‘Saints’ of the Black Dragon World through specific missions. After using the Dragon Eye Gem, they would be able to get in touch with the source of the Black Dragon World for a short time. At that time, the Saints would come into contact with methods of ‘transcending’ the Dragon Network.”
Song Shuhang curiously said, “In other words, these treasures are used by the Saints of the Black Dragon World to make breakthroughs to the ‘Ninth Level’? What use do I have for such a thing?”
The Dragon Network Assistant continued, “After making contact with the Black Dragon World’s source, there is a certain chance that the Dragon Eye Gem will condense a ‘Dragon Talisman’ inside the user’s body. The Dragon Talisman has a resurrection function. With it, even if you leave the Black Dragon World and meet with an accident, you can still be reborn in the Black Dragon World. The side effect is that you will lose a portion of your strength.”
“Oh, a resurrection magical treasure?” Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword said. “And it is a very high-level resurrection magical treasure, one that can even be used at the Ninth Stage?”
The Dragon Network Assistant nodded. “The number of Saints at this time is 11. According to the rules of the Dragon Network, one Dragon Eye Gem has to be kept for emergencies. The extra one can be given to Administrator Tyrannical Dragon as a gift.”
Song Shuhang curiously asked, “So only one available. Was it out of stock before?”
The Dragon Network Assistant said calmly, “The inventory was stolen.”
“!!!” Song Shuhang.
In other words, if the inventory hadn’t been stolen, he could have gotten at least two Dragon Eye Gems?
Which goddamn thief stole from the treasure vault?
“Was it the Demon Emperor?” Song Shuhang guessed.
The Dragon Network Assistant nodded. “Correct.”
After using the Dragon Eye Gem, one would be able to get in contact with the source of the Black Dragon World, and this was very useful to the Demon Emperor. Therefore, every 1,000 years, the excess ‘Dragon Eye Gems’ would be taken by the Demon Emperor, resulting in the Dragon Network not having a single Dragon Eye Gem in stock.
Originally, the next batch of Dragon Eye Gems was set to be produced in 10 years. However, in order to ‘celebrate’ the removal of the malignant tumor that was the Demon Emperor, the Black Dragon World produced Dragon Eye Gems ahead of time to present as a gift to Song Shuhang.
“What a pity, I thought that we’d all be able to get a Dragon Eye Gem,” Song Shuhang said regretfully. “Moreover, my demand for things like ‘resurrection magical treasures’ is still quite high. The more of such things I have, the better.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword couldn’t help but remind him, “I think that one of it is enough for you. I feel that the more you have, the more you lose control of yourself.”
It was especially so in Song Shuhang’s current state—it seemed that he’d not fully recovered from the inner demon’s influence, and he had a particularly strong desire to execute the various bold ideas he had in mind.
“I guess one Dragon Eye Gem is fine too.” Song Shuhang looked at Doudou and Soft Feather again.
Doudou had a ‘Resurrection Gold Coin’ on him, which he got in the Heavenly Tribulation Realm, back when Shuhang was preparing to ‘kill him with kind intentions’.
“Soft Feather, come here.” Song Shuhang beckoned to Soft Feather.
Soft Feather curiously approached Song Shuhang. “What’s the matter, Senior Song?”
Song Shuhang said, “Stretch out your hand.”
Soft Feather stretched out her little hand.
Song Shuhang took out a Resurrection Gold Coin, and put it in her hand. “Here’s some money to buy candies.”
Soft Feather’s face bulged like a bun. “Senior Song, I’m not a kid.”
Song Shuhang said, “The Resurrection Gold Coin can only be used below the Sixth Stage. There is no price to pay for the resurrection, but the resurrection time depends on your luck. If it lands on tails, then the resurrection will take 10 years; if it’s heads, then 10 months. If your luck is heaven-defying and the coin stands on its side, then you’ll resurrect in 10 minutes.”
He was now a genuine Sixth Stage True Monarch, a senior figure in the world of cultivation. And that meant that these Resurrection Gold Coins would no longer work for him.
The one he gave to Soft Feather was the ninth gold coin out of the twelve he bought.
For the remaining three, he planned on leaving Chu Chu and Little Cai with one each. Then, he would give the last one to Sixteen.
Both Little Yinzhu and Lady Onion still had the Resurrection Gold Coins he had given them back then.
“Thank you, Senior Song,” Soft Feather chuckled. She still had the means of resurrection that her father had prepared for her, but she was very happy to accept this Resurrection Gold Coin nonetheless.
At the side, Scarlet Heaven Sword fell into thought.
No wonder, no wonder. The Resurrection Gold Coins had clearly already come off cooldown, but Song Shuhang hadn’t gotten to use them yet. So it was actually because they were no longer of use to him…
The Dragon Network Assistant took Song Shuhang to the place where Dragon Eye Gems were produced. This was an important place, so one would not be able to enter this area without Administrator Authority.
Therefore, it was actually only Song Shuhang alone who could enter this place.
Soft Feather and Lady Onion had to stay behind in the Dragon Blood Tribe. Song Shuhang used his Dragon Network Authority to connect with the Virtuous Network, which then allowed them to connect to the main world’s network so that they could watch movies or chat online, and would not get too bored.
Similar to the dragon scales, the dragon’s eyes were also home to two small worlds.
But unlike the small worlds on the dragon scales, the small worlds on the dragon’s eyes were huge oceans without any vitality.
Song Shuhang reached out to touch the seawater. “Could these be the tears of the Black Dragon?”
The Dragon Network Assistant said, “It’s just pure seawater.”
Song Shuhang said, “The Black Dragon World is truly amazing.”
One day, if I’m able to cultivate to the realm that the Black Dragon reached, would my body also turn into its own planet or world, with countless creatures living on it?
He couldn’t help but picture this scene in his mind, but he ultimately shook his head.
As soon as he thought about the countless little people and animals living on him, he felt uncomfortable.
If he were to take a shower at that time, would it be the end for all those creatures on his body?
Song Shuhang said, “I’d rather not. Transforming one’s body into a planet, whoever is interested can go and do it. Not being able to move, as well as not being able to take baths, I don’t think I’d be able to handle that.”
The Dragon Network Assistant tilted its head, looked at Song Shuhang, and then suddenly said, “If there comes a day when the entire universe is destroyed… Other than those who possess the power of eternity, no other existence will be able to survive, and everything will be destroyed. If at that time, Administrator Tyrannical Dragon can become a planet and become the last bastion for the people of the universe, would you be willing to shelter those people on your body?”
The universe was not eternal.
Immortals didn’t have a limit to their lifespan, and they could live forever, but they were not eternal.
There would come a day when the universe they knew would also be destroyed… Just like how it happened to the one where the ‘Black Dragon World’ was originally located.
There was only one entity that could wield eternity, and even if those who had once held this position were taken into account, they only numbered seven. The current Wielder of the Will, Fat Ball, was the eighth Eternal. In the entire universe, other than these eight who might have a chance of surviving, everything else was set for destruction.
The Dragon Network Assistant continued, “If such a situation were to present, Administrator Tyrannical Dragon, would you be willing to become a planet that can’t bathe or move?”
Song Shuhang looked up at the sky.
He thought of his relatives, friends, and loved ones. If he could embody a planet and shelter them from destruction… Well, did the answer to such a question even need to be said?
“If such a time really comes… Then yes, I would be willing,” Song Shuhang said—wasn’t it just not taking a bath for several tens of millions of years?
Moreover, as long as a new universe was created and developed, he could transfer all the creatures on his body over to that universe, and then recover from his planetary state. Once he recovered from his planetary state, then he could take a good bath or something.
“Administrator Tyrannical Dragon really deserves to be a person that Lady Fat Ball keeps in high regard,” the Dragon Network Assistant said. “You possess noble qualities.”
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “There are only the two of us here, so there is no need to praise me like that. Nobody else can see us.”
The Dragon Network Assistant replied, “Executing command. From now on, I will no longer praise Administrator Tyrannical Dragon.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
There’s a command like that?
Heavens, should I cancel that order?
If I canceled it, wouldn’t it look as if I like being praised? But I feel like I’m going to suffer from a severe heart attack if I don’t undo it.
At this moment, the Dragon Network Assistant said, “The Dragon Eye Gems are coming out.”
From the boundless ocean, a patch of brilliant light rose up.
It was more beautiful than any fireworks Song Shuhang had ever seen.
“Watching this scene on my own honestly feels like such a waste,” Song Shuhang said softly.
At this moment, if there was a woman by his side, and their fingers were clasped together as they watched this ‘firework’ bloom, how picturesque would that be?
 Longan is also written as ‘dragon eye’ in Chinese.
