Gao Moumou regained his senses and rubbed his eyes.
"Strange, how come I suddenly fell asleep?" Gao Moumou said in puzzlement.
Was it possible that he had lost consciousness due to a sunstroke?
At this time, he discovered that he wasn't in the shade of that big tree next to the entrance of the villa anymore, but was lying on the sofa in the living room.
From the looks of it, someone carried him back to the villa.
On another nearby sofa was sitting that daoist priest that he found very pleasant to chat with. The daoist priest was holding a cup of tea with both hands and leisurely taking a sip. In front of him was a pile of meat sandwiches.
"Old Gao, you finally woke up." Song Shuhang's voice echoed right at this time.
Gao Moumou turned his head in the direction the voice came from and saw that Song Shuhang was squatting in an empty area of the living room, trying to open a large box.
"Yes, I just woke up. Shuhang, for how long have I been asleep?" Gao Moumou asked.
"Not long, just a few minutes, I guess," Song Shuhang replied thoughtlessly.
The effects of the sleeping gas lasted for a very short amount of time. As soon as he finished signing the express delivery, he moved both the box and Gao Moumou back in the villa. He didn't even have the time to open the box that Gao Moumou woke up.
"From the looks of it, it was really a sunstroke? Right, Shuhang. Has Tubo arrived yet?" Gao Moumou asked. For some reason, he felt rather energetic after waking up.
Song Shuhang turned his head toward Gao Moumou and said, "Perhaps he is stuck in a traffic jam, and hasn't arrived for this reason. You can try giving him a call him if you want."
While he was speaking, he noticed that Daoist Priest Horizon stretched out his hand and grabbed a meat sandwich, starting to eat it with gusto.
It was already the seventh!
This daoist priest sipping tea and eating meat sandwiches was really shameless.
Song Shuhang wasn't the owner of the villa, and it wasn't proper for him to chase him out.
As for the owner of the villa, Yu Jiaojiao, she felt rather embarrassed chasing out a senior at the peak Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor Realm.
Daoist Priest Horizon wasn't shy of strangers, either. After getting into the villa, he acted as though he was in his own house, eating and drinking as he pleased.
He wasn't the 'Frenzied Strength Imparter' for nothing.
Gao Moumou stretched himself and arrived next to Song Shuhang, asking casually, "Shuhang, what is inside this box?"
"It's the gift a senior sent, and I have no idea what is inside," Song Shuhang replied. Just as he was speaking, he stripped off the outside wrapping of the box.
What appeared before his eyes in the next moment was a cubic block of metal. At first sight, it was just a cubic block of metal without even a crack in it.
Don't tell me that the gift is precisely this cubic block of metal!
"Is this the gift?" Yu Jiaojiao's voice echoed in Song Shuhang's ears. She used the secret sound transmission technique so as to avoid Gao Moumou hearing her.
Song Shuhang pondered for a moment and said, "It didn't feel heavy when I carried it inside. It's very likely that it's empty inside. Maybe the box is made of a special type of metal and one can open it only through a particular method."
However, he couldn't exclude the fact that Elder Bamboo Pipe might have forged this 'weightless' cubic block of metal and sent it to their disciple for some reason.
After thinking up to this point, Song Shuhang took out the golden chain.
Earlier, the golden chain resonated with the cubic block of metal. If one considered the block of metal a sealed package, the golden chain was very likely the key to this package.
As soon as Song Shuhang took out the golden chain, the cubic block of metal resonated with it.
The pictures of 33 beasts appeared on the left side of the metallic cube. Then, the pictures formed a circle, matching the 33 beasts engraved on the golden chain.
However, the 33 beasts on the metallic cube were arranged in a different order than the ones on the golden chain.
Song Shuhang squatted down and stretched out his hand, pressing on the picture of a beast just as though he was pressing on the touchscreen of a smartphone, trying to change its position.
As such, Song Shuhang was now aware of how to open this block of metal. He had to arrange the 33 beasts on the metal box in the same order as the ones engraved on the golden chain in his hands.
Very soon, Song Shuhang finished arranging the pictures in the correct order.
In the next moment, the upper part of the metallic cube slid to one side, revealing an opening.
After seeing the scene, the nearby Gao Moumou said, "It's unexpectedly so high-tech?"
"Yep!" Song Shuhang said as he nodded. That wasn't all; this thing was directly a product of Black Technology and was an object from 130 years ago. As expected, cultivators had already built and overused to death products that modern technology was able to develop just recently.
As the box opened, Shuhang stood up and gazed at its contents.
What would be inside this box that had cost him one spirit stone of the Fourth Stage as a storage fee?
"So pretty!" said Yu Jiaojiao who was currently sitting on Song Shuhang's shoulder.
Inside the box were layer upon layer of... clothes.
In addition, it was all women's clothing!
There were all kinds of clothes, and each of them had a unique design that could match the immortal clothing that fairy maidens wore in legends.
However... the clothes were just pretty and nothing else.
They weren't magical robes.
Due to the special materials used to manufacture them, they were more resilient than ordinary clothes. However, these weren't magical clothes and didn't have the same features and defensive powers.
Although there were several runes and formation on the clothes, their only function was to make the 'immortal clothing' look even more beautiful.
Due to the special materials used to manufacture them and the formation inside the metallic cube, the immortal clothing was preserved very well.
Now, Shuhang was sure of something. The disciple of that elder of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Sect was surely a fairy maiden.
In addition, it didn't seem she was too old. Anyway, she had a petite build. The size of the clothes inside the box was rather small.
Song Shuhang's shivering hands grabbed a piece of light-blue immortal clothing that was giving off a luxurious aura. At the same time, it looked lovable due to its rather small size.
The picture of a petite girl resurfaced in Song Shuhang's mind as soon as he saw this set of clothes... it was Su Clan's Sixteen's picture.
Cultivators had a very good memory. Therefore, as soon as Song Shuhang recalled Sixteen's build, he determined that this piece of expensive immortal clothing would really suit her.
She had short hair and was very good-looking even without any make-up. If one were to add this piece of light-blue immortal clothing to the mix, she would surely look gorgeous!
Next, Song Shuhang glanced at the second layer... the second layer also consisted of immortal clothing. However, their size was slightly bigger.
Shuhang placed down the light-blue immortal clothing and stretched out his shivering hands again, picking up a set of clothes from the second layer and unfolding it. It was a pure white dress that ended up in a short skirt. However, the rear part of the skirt was rather long.
Anyway, this set of clothes was one size bigger than the previous one. Strange, why had Elder Bamboo Pipe bought two sets of clothes of different sizes for their disciple?
The picture of a familiar Fellow Daoist resurfaced in Song Shuhang's mind as soon as he saw this pure white piece of immortal clothing... it was Soft Feather's picture.
The short skirt and the extended back part made this piece of immortal clothing look full of vigor and energy, perfectly fitting for Miss Soft Feather's long legs!
However, the body build of Su Clan's Sixteen and Soft Feather differed quite a lot!
Was it possible that Elder Bamboo Pipe's disciple practiced a special cultivation technique and had some shapeshifting skill that could allow her to change the build of her body?
Or perhaps Elder Bamboo Pipe didn't have only one disciple but a whole group of female cultivators?
There were so many sets of clothes with all of them being incredibly pretty. Some of them suited Su Clan's Sixteen, and others suited Soft Feather. There were even more clothes of different types below and perhaps he would find another person to whom he could match them.
Song Shuhang was extremely happy... or perhaps he wasn't!
What was the point of him having all this women's clothing?!
He had exchanged a precious spirit stone of the Fourth Stage for a box full of immortal clothing!
Although the value of this immortal clothing surely surpassed by far that of a spirit stone of the Fourth Stage, was he supposed to set up a stall and start selling these clothes now?
In addition, how did this immortal clothing produce a powerful resonance with the golden chain?!
Was it possible that the golden chain had resonated with box and not with the items inside?
"So many clothes for women? Moreover, they all seem the classic-type ones!" Right at this time, Gao Moumou came over and stretched his neck, glancing at the clothes inside the box.
"I didn't expect that there would be only female clothes inside!" Song Shuhang didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
Gao Moumou teased Shuhang as he said, "The senior that sent you this gift is rather interesting. Or perhaps... do you have some special hobby, Shuhang?"
"Tsk, you must be the one with the hobby of wearing female clothes!" Song Shuhang taunted him.
"I didn't say that you had the hobby of wearing female clothes. I only wondered whether you had the hobby of collecting stuff," Gao Moumou said with a smile.
But then, his eyes suddenly lit up.
Oh! It's a rather interesting hobby now that I think about it. Should I make it so that the main character of the story also likes wearing female clothing? No, wait. That's too direct. I should prepare an ingenious plot and have the main character disguise as a woman to carry out a secret mission or join a dinner party.
Gao Moumou felt that his inspiration was on fire and many good ideas suddenly appeared in his mind. He wished he could start noting everything down immediately!
Song Shuhang had no idea as to what was going on in Gao Moumou's head at this time. If he knew, he would have given Gao Moumou a like (👍) and booked a good piece of land within Yu Jiaojiao's graveyard at the bottom of the sea for him.
After all, he wasn't going to be the one playing the part of the main character!
After placing the immortal clothing back inside the box, Song Shuhang heaved a sigh and said, "I'll move this stuff to another place first."
After saying this much, he said goodbye to Gao Moumou and Daoist Priest Horizon and picked up the metallic box, returning to his room.
Just as he was going upstairs, he said to Yu Jiaojiao who was sitting on his shoulder, "Jiaojiao, is there any of these clothes that you like in particular? Perhaps you can choose one and keep it?"
Yu Jiaojiao could use them after she had advanced to the Fifth Stage Realm and become capable of assuming human form~
The box was full of immortal clothing. Gifting them to someone was probably the best choice.
After hearing these words, Yu Jiaojiao smiled and said, "No need. There is still a long time before I can reach the Fifth Stage and change my form. Therefore, it's better if you keep this immortal clothing for now and use it to curry favors with your future wife. In addition, you don't really conform to my aesthetic standard, Shuhang."
"..." Song Shuhang.
How could he reply to Miss Yu Jiaojiao's words?
'Miss Yu Jiaojiao, I'm truly sorry that I don't have a fish head and can't conform to your esthetic standard'?e
Actually, Song Shuhang was misunderstanding Yu Jiaojiao's preferences.
Her father's flood dragon bloodline had heavily influenced Yu Jiaojiao's aesthetic standard. From Yu Jiaojiao's perspective, a handsome man had to have a pair of solid dragon horns or flood dragon-type small horns...
How could a man without dragon horns be even regarded as handsome?
