In the morning, 10:40 AM.
Song Shuhang likewise woke up with a hangover. He felt as though his head was going to explode and as if someone was hammering it with their fists.
His head was already hurting due to the excessive amount of mental energy. Now, with the addition of the pain from the hangover, he felt truly awful.
I'd better stop drinking for the time being! Song Shuhang thought to himself.
In addition, he discovered something very scary after waking up. He had lost one of the gloves he was wearing. Luckily, the right-hand glove hadn't fallen off too far and was still next to the bed. From the looks of it, it had come off while he was dead drunk.
His luck was good yesterday, and he didn't end up activating that weird secret appraisal technique. It was great that he didn't appraise the bed, the pillow, or the quilt!
Song Shuhang quickly picked up the glove and wore it.
From now on, he would have to be more careful while going to sleep at night. He had to prevent himself from performing any action that might cause his gloves to come off while he was sleeping. He'd better find a way to fix the gloves to his hands before going to bed.
After getting out of bed, Song Shuhang started brushing his teeth and washing his face.
At the same time, he thought about what he was going to do today. Today, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue will come over with her immortal dishes, right?
Hopefully, his constitution would strengthen enough to alleviate his headache after eating the immortal dishes.
Just as he was in deep thoughts, a stream of air current entered from the open window.
An immortal boat that ordinary people couldn't see had just arrived in the airspace of Yu Jiaojiao's villa.
Next, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue came out of the immortal boat and stepped into the void while holding a huge lunchbox. She was still wearing a veil, and one couldn't see her appearance clearly.
After leisurely walking up until the entrance of Yu Jiaojiao's villa, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said, "Little friend Shuhang, are you home?"
"Yes, I'm home. Fairy Bie Xue, I'm coming!" Song Shuhang replied.
Song Shuhang quickly finished washing his face and headed downstairs to open the door for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue.
"Good afternoon, little friend Song," Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said with a smile. "It just so happens that I've already finished preparing those immortal dishes for you. If there are no problems, you can eat them now. If you wait too long, their effects will weaken."
After hearing her words, Song Shuhang immediately said, "Immortal Fairy, please come in!"
It was better not to waste time and eat the immortal dishes before their effects weakened!
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue entered the villa and immediately saw Daoist Priest Horizon sitting on the sofa in the living room.
At this time, Daoist Priest Horizon was looking at Immortal Fairy Bie Xue with a bitter expression on his face.
Although he was Immortal Fairy Bie Xue's good friend, it was still very difficult for him to eat her meticulously prepared 'immortal dishes'. But now, she prepared a meal for little friend Song Shuhang, whom she had met just yesterday, and even personally came to his place to deliver it! It was like neglecting one's friends when smitten with a new love!
After seeing Daoist Priest Horizon, the corner of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue's mouth twitched under the veil. Daoist Priest Horizon had unexpectedly decided to settle down in this villa? Was it possible that he was still thinking of carrying out a transaction with little friend Shuhang and imparting him his strength?
Actually, Daoist Priest Horizon's strength imparting was pretty good... but only if one ignored the 90% possibility of dying soon after.
At this time, Yu Jiaojiao also came downstairs.
Song Shuhang's three friends and Yayi were so drunk that they probably wouldn't wake up until evening.
In the dining room of Yu Jiaojiao's villa.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue opened the lunchbox and took the dishes out, placing them on the dining table.
There were one main course and thirteen side dishes.
When Song Shuhang looked at the fourteen dishes that were as beautiful as a work of art, he inwardly sighed with emotion. Today, he finally discovered that dishes that cultivators prepared really emitted light!
Each dish Immortal Fairy Bie Xue had prepared for this feast was covered by a pale layer of fluorescent light. It was the spiritual energy inside the ingredients that was brought out thanks to the Immortal Fairy Bie Xue's culinary skills and had eventually turned into a pale layer of bright light that covered the dishes.
In addition, these immortal dishes were something that Immortal Fairy Bie Xue had prepared overnight and in a hurry. Therefore, the light they emitted wasn't that strong.
If this was the 'Immortal Feast' that Immortal Fairy Bie Xue had been preparing for several years, would the spiritual qi inside each dish turn into golden light shooting toward the sky? With the spiritual qi taking the shape of dragons, phoenixes, and other exaggerated things? Song Shuhang thought to himself.
Seeing the guests exclaim in surprise at the sight of their dishes was one of the biggest joys for a chef.
"Please, enjoy yourself," Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said smiling as she placed the main course in from of him.
Song Shuhang had to eat the main course in its entirety, and he couldn't share it with others.
As for the side dishes, Song Shuhang had to eat around one-third of each of them to have his constitution strengthened to the limit.
Of course, he could eat all of them if he wanted to and there would be no problem whatsoever.
But after seeing the expectant looks on the faces of Yu Jiaojiao and Daoist Priest Horizon, who were sitting on one side, how could Song Shuhang shamelessly enjoy all the side dishes by himself?
Song Shuhang followed Immortal Fairy Bie Xue's instruction and finished the main course first. Then, they started to take turns and orderly finished eating the thirteen side dishes as well.
Although the scene wasn't as exaggerated as those characters that shed their clothes and started running along the seashore naked, whenever Shuhang swallowed down a mouthful of the immortal dishes, he felt his mind going blank. There was only one thought in his head at this time: eat, eat, eat.
Without him even realizing, the strength of his constitution had started to quickly increase.
With each bite of the immortal dishes he was taking, the energy within the food quickly spread to each part of his body starting from his belly.
Once he finished eating those dishes, he felt his body become lighter, just as though he was about to float up.
That bloated feeling transmitting from his dantian earlier had disappeared without traces.
Even the pain transmitting from the place between his eyebrows had greatly reduced.
At this time, the strength of his constitution had already reached the peak of the Second Stage.
In addition, he felt as though his body had come somewhat 'younger'. It wasn't just Song Shuhang's imagination; his lifespan had really increased a little.
It was the power of the number one immortal chef in the world of cultivators! While she was thinking of the immortal dishes to prepare to strengthen Song Shuhang's constitution, she also increased his lifespan!
"Wonderful," Song Shuhang said softly.
This feeling was even more wonderful than the one he had felt after coming out of that room with 5x gravity. He felt like floating up at this time.
Shuhang left the dining table and found an empty place in the living room, starting to practice a fist technique.
After practicing the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ once, he felt that each of his fists was full of power and he could easily mobilize the whole energy of his body.
At this time, the mere physical strength of his fist, without the addition of true qi, was comparable to his full-powered fist from yesterday!
Beyond that, he could eat spirit beast crystals again and practice the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯!
If he were to eat around five spirit beast crystals of the Second Stage each day, he should be able to perfectly condense the 'innate true qi' inside his body within ten days, allowing the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯ to undergo a qualitative change!
If a few immortal dishes could have such an effect, what would happen if he were to eat the food at the 'Immortal Feast' in a while? Would his constitution reach the Third Stage Realm directly?
If a cultivator of the Second Stage Realm possessed the constitution of the Third Stage Realm, wouldn't they be the same as the 'Soul King' Dharma King Creation, training their body until reaching a constitution comparable to that of the next realm before even reaching it?
However, Dharma King Creation had relied on the ❮Warring Buddha's True Body❯ to strengthen his body bit by bit... on the other hand, Song Shuhang had mostly eaten some food to reach the same effect.
After practicing one round of the fist technique, Song Shuhang turned toward Immortal Fairy Bie Xue and cupped his fists, saying gratefully, "Immortal Fairy, thanks for the immortal dishes!"
"You don't need to thank me. What we carried out was an equal exchange," Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said with a smile. However, mentioning this matter made her heart ache.
She had managed to obtain that onion spirit crystal from Shuhang with much difficulty, but that stupid snake ate it before she could even use it.
After recalling this event, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue asked, "Right. Little friend Song... do you have any extra part of that green onion crystal you gave me the last time?"
As soon as Immortal Fairy Bie Xue asked this question, Lady Onion, who was hiding inside Song Shuhang's clothes, got so scared that her green onion root went soft. Just as I expected, it's happening again! This time, Song Shuhang doesn't have a crystal with him! My green onion sprout is in danger!
Song Shuhang shook his head and said, "I'm sorry, Fairy Maiden. I only had that crystal with me."
"In that case, little friend Shuhang, where did you find that several hundred years old green onion? If possible, can you tell me the location?" Immortal Fairy Bie Xue asked again. If she knew the place where that green onion had come from, she could perhaps search it and find another very old green onion.
"Sure, no problem. I met that green onion in a place behind my house, 'Mountain Niuding'. It's precisely that Mountain Niuding next to Wenzhou City's Baijing Street." Then, Song Shuhang also added, "However, Fairy Maiden, the situation was a bit special back then. It wasn't me who found the green onion; it was the green onion that found me. Therefore, that green onion might not be a native of Mountain Niuding."
Song Shuhang had no intention of cutting of Lady Onion's green onion sprout again. Lately, Lady Onion had suffered a lot, to the point that her whole body melted while she was inside the golden coffin. Therefore, Song Shuhang felt very sorry for her.
Such being the case, he didn't want to go into details when the topic shifted to Lady Onion.
She was planning to send someone to search that 'Mountain Niuding' later and see if they could find anything. Immortal Fairy wouldn't go there personally. After all, she was a very busy person and didn't have the time to attend these small matters personally.
After eating the immortal dishes, Yu Jiaojiao, Daoist Priest Horizon, and Song Shuhang sat on the sofa, enjoying the aftertaste of the dishes.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue put away the lunchbox and also arrived next to the sofa, sitting down. It seemed she wanted to say something but couldn't muster her courage.
After pondering for a moment, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue decided to directly ask about the thing she wanted to know the most. "Little friend Song, do you know Fellow Daoist White?"
Fellow Daoist White?
"Do you mean Senior Venerable White?" Song Shuhang asked in return.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue nodded and said, "Yes."
Song Shuhang blinked and suddenly remembered about something, breaking out in a cold sweat. He remembered that Venerable White once told him that Immortal Fairy Bie Xue had proposed to him on her own initiative.
...But Venerable White rejected without a second thought.
Afterward, the furious Immortal Fairy Bie Xue didn't invite Senior White to her Immortal Feast for the next 400 years.
How should I reply to this question?
After pondering for a moment, Shuhang said, "Yes, Immortal Fairy. I indeed know Senior White. When Senior White came out of secluded meditation this time, I was the person in charge of showing him around."
"So that's how it was." Immortal Fairy Bie Xue nodded her head. No wonder little friend Song was related to Venerable White even though he was just a cultivator of the Second Stage Realm...
After a short pause, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue asked expectantly, "In that case, little friend Song, do you know where Fellow Daoist White is right now?"
