What had happened was simply too exaggerated!
Yu Jiaojiao brought Daoist Priest Horizon to the deepest room in the villa. Then, she ate some snacks and started surfing the Internet while she was at it.
When she got online, she received news about the East China Sea and rushed to Song Shuhang's room to inform him.
But as soon as she got inside the room, she discovered that Song Shuhang, who had broken through the fourth dantian not too long ago, was already on the verge of breaking through the eighth dantian, the Dragon Horn Dantian! From the looks of it, he could break through at any time.
This breakthrough speed was truly godlike!
Since when had it become so easy for cultivators to advance in realm?
Yu Jiaojiao started to ponder and could think of only one possibility... was it possible that the 'Frenzied Strength Imparter' Daoist Priest Horizon had sneaked into Song Shuhang's room while she was eating snacks and surfing the Internet, forcefully imparting his strength to Shuhang?
After all, only the strength imparting could explain this sudden increase in Song Shuhang's strength!
Song Shuhang raised his head and made a hollow laugh. Then, just as he opened his mouth to speak, his mental energy, which was already showing signs of turning silver, shone faintly. In the next moment, Shuhang felt as though someone had pounded his head with a hammer, a very big one at that.
After getting hammered down, he felt as though his head was going to split into two.
Song Shuhang clenched his teeth and rolled on the floor in pain. His constitution had become a major problem once again.
Should he ask the seniors in the Nine Provinces Number One Group to help him seal his mental energy?
However, he didn't want to casually go in the Nine Provinces Number One Group and ask about this matter. If the stubborn Fairy Firefly were to see his message and discover that he was still on Earth, she might make another trip just for him and use her repulsive force magical technique to send him into space again. What would he do if that happened?
He had important matters to take care of and couldn't afford to waste time in space.
"How do you feel?" Yu Jiaojiao asked somewhat worried after seeing Shuhang's painful expression.
"I'm fine. It's just the slight aftereffect of breaking through several small realms at once. That type of good thing that makes you worry," Song Shuhang said as he rubbed his temples.
Yu Jiaojiao asked, "Did Daoist Priest Horizon forcefully impart you his strength?"
"It wasn't Daoist Priest Horizon," Song Shuhang replied. "There was a small accident on my ghost spirit's side. With the help of the ghost spirit and that powerful expert, I was able to break through from the fourth to the seventh dantian in one go, and there is only a little bit left before I break through the eighth dantian as well. Ouch~ but it wasn't without consequences~"
No matter how much he had tried to hide, in the end, Shuhang was still forced to face the 'strength imparting' calamity.
Yu Jiaojiao more or less guessed what had happened. She knew that an incredibly powerful expert had forcibly taken control of Song Shuhang's ghost spirit. From the looks of it, that powerful expert had imparted some strength to Song Shuhang through the ghost spirit...
"Right. Jiaojiao, did you say that you found clues about my ghost spirit? Where was it seen last?" Song Shuhang asked.
"Wait a moment." Yu Jiaojiao took her laptop and opened the map of the East China Sea. Afterward, she pointed at a small red dot above the map and said, "It was here. I just received news that a small monster in the East China Sea saw from afar two terrifying existences standing on the surface of the sea. One was a man dressed up as a scholar, and the other a luminous jellyfish. That man is very likely the same person that took control of your ghost spirit!"
A luminous jellyfish? As soon as the jellyfish was mentioned, Song Shuhang recalled the things he experienced in the Time City of the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion.
At that time, due to Venerable White's Ten Thousand Mile Flying Escape Technique, he ended up inside a passageway that the luminous jellyfish guarded. Afterward, the luminous jellyfish wrapped him tightly with her tentacles until he lost consciousness. Later, he got his hands on that 'secret appraisal technique' that made him spurt out blood from all over the body each time.
Was this luminous jellyfish that had appeared in the East China Sea the same jellyfish he had seen in the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion?
If it was the same jellyfish, was that powerful expert that had forcibly taken control of his ghost spirit also related to the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion?
The reason his strength increased was that the powerful expert that had borrowed his ghost spirit suddenly released all his power, seemingly preparing for an all-out battle. Was it possible that he was planning to start a major battle with the luminous jellyfish?
Song Shuhang's thoughts were constantly welling up at this time. "Jiaojiao, are those two still in the East China Sea? Are they fighting?"
"Fighting? No. Although that fish herding small monster saw the scene from afar, those two powerhouses didn't seem to have a bad relationship and parted ways after chatting a bit," Yu Jiaojiao replied.
If those two terrifying existences started an all-out battle, that pitiful fish herding small monster would have probably died already. Just the shock waves generated from the blows of those super-powerhouses were enough to kill that small monster several times.
If he wasn't planning to fight with the luminous jellyfish... with whom is that powerful expert that borrowed my ghost spirit planning to fight? Song Shuhang furrowed his brows.
He tried to contact his ghost spirit again, but it was useless. The connection between the two had been blocked again, and there was no reply from the other side.
Just as he was in deep thoughts, his mental energy rose again, and Shuhang felt as though someone was pounding his head with a hammer, making him feel very painful. Song Shuhang secretly clenched his teeth and said, "Jiaojiao, do you know where the luminous jellyfish and my ghost spirit went afterward?"
Yu Jiaojiao replied, "After chatting for a bit with the luminous jellyfish, that man dressed up as a scholar suddenly disappeared. Soon after, the luminous jellyfish also disappeared without leaving any trace."
"In that case, are they still in the East China Sea?" Song Shuhang asked, somewhat worried. It was very difficult to find the traces of experts of that level; it was no easy matter discovering where they had gone.
"I'm not sure about that. I'll help you monitor the situation for the time being. If they appear in another location of the East China Sea, it means that they are still roaming in the sea. At that time, we'll head toward the East China Sea and try to find them," Yu Jiaojiao replied.
"Thank you, Jiaojiao," Song Shuhang said.
He was lucky that Yu Jiaojiao was here to help him this time. Otherwise, there was no way he could search through the vast East China Sea by himself.
"You're welcome. We are friends after all," Yu Jiaojiao said with a smile.
Song Shuhang was moved. I have a mermaid friend! Are you jealous?
If you are jealous, press 1. I'll send you the adorable picture of a mermaid!
In the meantime, in space.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram, who had now assumed Fairy Lychee's appearance, was drifting about in space.
"I should be safe now, right?" Immortal Master Copper Trigram muttered to himself.
The ambush in space that Northern River's Loose Cultivator was talking about in the group didn't take place. As such, Immortal Master felt that he was already out of the encirclement.
"Hehe, you are still too inexperienced to catch Copper Trigram!" Immortal Master Copper Trigram said complacently.
He was planning to make a trip to the moon first and look for a place to settle down.
Then, he would adjust his condition and prepare for war. He wanted to prepare for the battle on the summit of the forbidden city that would take place on next night of full moon, giving Northern River's Loose Cultivator a good beating.
That stupid Northern River unexpectedly wanted to challenge him to a duel; he really didn't know the meaning of the word 'death'! Hehehe, the truth was that Immortal Master Copper Trigram had already broken through during the past half a year!
At this time, he was already True Monarch Copper Trigram!
However, he had to keep a low profile before giving Northern River a good lesson.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram could already imagine the scene on the summit of the forbidden city during the full moon night. Just as Northern River's Loose Cultivator was completely sure of defeating him and ready to use that opportunity to break through to the Sixth Stage True Monarch Realm... he, Immortal Master Copper Trigram, would make his brilliant appearance and reveal his strength of the True Monarch rank.
What kind of expression would that stupid Northern River's Loose Cultivator make at that time? Copper Trigram was really looking forward to seeing it!
"I'll scare you until you piss yourself, Northern River!" Immortal Master Copper Trigram said full of confidence.
He had to thoroughly prepare for war and be like a lion pouncing on a hare, sparing no effort. In addition, Northern River's Loose Cultivator was far from being a hare; he was a vicious wolf.
Just as he was pondering about this matter, Immortal Master Copper Trigram suddenly furrowed his brows. He had seen a familiar silhouette in a distant place.
Yes, it was indeed someone's silhouette.
It was an adorable pekingese jumping around on a meteoroid.
In the world of cultivators, there weren't many monster pekingese.
It's True Monarch Yellow Mountain's Doudou. Immortal Master Copper Trigram immediately recognized the pekingese.
But what was Doudou doing here?
From his appearance, it seemed he was looking for someone or something in space...
Wait, he is looking for someone? Immortal Master Copper Trigram was immediately alarmed.
Is it possible that this is one of the traps that Northern River's Loose Cultivator was talking about?
After all, as soon as one thought of dogs, they would also think about their innate ability to follow trails.
Had Northern River's Loose Cultivator really prepared a huge encirclement in space and was just waiting for him to fall for it?
But after breaking free of Fairy Firefly's repulsive flying rocket technique, he had headed in a casual direction... was it possible that everything had been within Northern River's Loose Cultivator's calculations?
Had Northern River's Loose Cultivator really got such a deep understanding of the situation?
What should I do if this is really Northern River's ambush? Should I greet Doudou? Immortal Master Copper Trigram thought to himself.
At this time, he had turned into Fairy Lychee. Therefore, there should be no problem even if Doudou were to discover him, correct?
Although Fairy Lychee was supposed to be at the South Pole taking pictures with penguins, a day had passed already. It shouldn't be too strange for her to be currently in space, right?
Immortal Master Copper Trigram firmly believed in his disguising technique. He wouldn't be discovered!
Doudou hadn't discovered Immortal Master Copper Trigram's traces yet.
Doudou was just a monster dog of the Fourth Stage Realm. Perhaps he could rely on his keen sense of smell to find Immortal Master Copper Trigram if they were on Earth. But they were in space now, and his scouting abilities were greatly weakened.
In addition, Doudou wasn't even looking for Immortal Master Copper Trigram. The person he was looking for was Song Shuhang.
Doudou had quietly run away from home so as to avoid getting married to a man, successfully reaching space.
While escaping, he didn't bring any technological equipment with him so as to avoid True Monarch Yellow Mountain locking his position. Such being the case, he had no idea that Song Shuhang had already returned to Earth.
Since he thought that Song Shuhang was still in space, he started looking for him as soon as he got there in the hope of seeking refuge.
True Monarch Yellow Mountain was simply too scary and unexpectedly wanted to marry him to a man. After pondering about the matter for a while, he concluded that it was better to stay with little friend Song Shuhang for the time being. Usually, he would complain that stupid Yellow Mountain wasn't looking for him to bring him home, but this time, he absolutely wouldn't believe True Monarch Yellow Mountain unless the latter canceled his marriage.
Doudou had been searching in space for two days already. However, his luck was pretty good, and he had managed to lock onto the remnants of Song Shuhang's aura through a tracking magical technique.
At this time, he was proceeding in the direction of Song Shuhang's aura.
Behind Doudou, Immortal Master Copper Trigram maintained Fairy Lychee's appearance and kept quietly following him.
At first, he thought that Doudou was looking for him, but then, just as he prepared to greet Doudou, he discovered that the person Doudou was looking for wasn't him.
In that case, whom was Doudou looking for?
Immortal Master Copper Trigram got curious and started following Doudou while keeping a certain distance between them.
Just in this fashion, a man and a dog wandered further and further away in space.
After an unknown amount of time... Doudou finally stopped.
He had reached his destination.
He raised his head and looked at a place not too far away from him. In there was a meteoroid with a palace built on it. A defensive formation protected the place, and only cultivators could see it.
"There is no mistaking. It's precisely this place!" Doudou said excitedly. He knew from Song Shuhang's aura that this palace had been his final destination.
Thereupon, Doudou dashed at full speed toward the palace.
It looked like a magnificent palace at first sight. Therefore, it was surely going to be a fun place. Would Shuhang be happy to see him? After all, he was such a lovely pekingese.
"Whoosh~" Doudou squeezed himself into the layer that protected the palace and arrived in front of the entrance.
"There is air here, and I can breathe. There is gravity as well. Woof, woof." Doudou excitedly stepped on the ground. Afterward, he climbed on the door of the palace and gently knocked on it. "Is anyone home? Woof, woof. I'm looking for Song Shuhang. Is anyone home?"
In a distant place, Immortal Master Copper Trigram looked at the palace and furrowed his brows. He felt as though he had seen this palace somewhere.
After shaking his head, he quietly retreated.
Doudou had come to space in order to find little friend Song Shuhang. It was truly unfortunate, but Doudou was doomed to be unable to find him.
Because little friend Song Shuhang had already returned to Earth!
Actually, little friend Song Shuhang should have been sent to space a second time, but Copper Trigram ended up taking his place when he disguised as him!
Thereupon, Doudou could shout all he wanted, but no one was going to reply!
A pleased smile appeared on Immortal Master Copper Trigram's face... a true expert wouldn't brag about their accomplishments but would quietly leave!
There was no need to thank him; he was just a good-hearted person.
Then, just as Copper Trigram was preparing to turn around and leave, the gate of the palace suddenly opened.
A girl with fine and delicate features opened the main gate. She wore a purple skirt, and her long brown hair was carefully braided into pigtails. Moreover, her long fringe faintly covered her eyes.
She was holding a thick book in her hands and gave off the air of a literate person.
"Hello, are you looking for Song Shuhang?" The well-read girl lowered her head and looked at Doudou. Then, she squatted down and stretched out her hand, gently patting Doudou's head. She was wearing an incredibly beautiful glove on her hand.
"Yes! I'm Song Shuhang's friend, Doudou. I'm looking for him so that we can play together." Doudou showed a cute appearance.
"You are welcome to come over and play, but... Song Shuhang has already returned to Earth," the well-read girl replied softly. Just as she was speaking, she seemed to have sensed something and looked toward a distant place.
It was precisely the place where Immortal Master Copper Trigram was hiding.
The well-read girl closely watched the place Immortal Master Copper Trigram was hiding. Her vision saw through Copper Trigram's cover, getting a glimpse of his appearance.
In the next moment, tears started to copiously flow from the eyes of the well-read girl. Her eyes became very red, and she started to sob.
The more she was crying, the more aggrieved she looked. Her whole body was trembling.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram was baffled. What was happening? His eyes met with the well-read girl for an instant, and the other party started to cry as though there was no tomorrow! She cried so much that he felt uncomfortable all over his body.
Did I offend her?
But I was only hiding in this place and just happened to glance at her!
Glancing at people is also wrong now?
