The box was opened, revealing layer upon layer of immortal clothing. In addition, all of it was women's clothing.
Each of the clothes had a unique design and wasn't inferior to the clothes that fairy maidens wore in legends. Several runes and formations were engraved above the immortal clothing to make it even more beautiful.
After seeing this large box full of gorgeous clothes, Su Clan's Sixteen blinked her eyes.
Where had Song Shuhang obtained all these clothes?
Song Shuhang started to explain on his own initiative. "This box full of immortal clothing was a gift that a certain senior prepared, and it has been lying inside the warehouse of the 'Three Ages Armed Escort Office' all along. I collected this box recently from their office but I didn't expect that I would find only immortal clothing inside."
Luckily, aside from the immortal clothing, there was also that small box that contained 33 spirit beast crystals and the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯ inside the box. Otherwise, Song Shuhang would have cried himself to sleep. Back then, he used the only spirit stone he had with him as the fee to collect the sealed package.
"When I opened this box full of immortal clothing back then, I saw that there were some clothes very suitable for you, Sixteen. Therefore, I kept this thought in mind and decided to gift them to you the next time we met." Song Shuhang picked up the layer of clothes on the top and spread it on the bed.
Sixteen's eyes shone. Then, she said with a smile, "Should I try them?"
"Yes, you should. I'll wait outside the door. Call me when you are done." Song Shuhang waved his hand and walked out of the room.
Sixteen lowered her head and replied, "Okay."
Song Shuhang stood outside the door while taking a look at the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯ in his hands. This book was like a textbook, very easy to understand.
In addition, the various methods described in the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯ to tame animals were unexpectedly related to the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯ he practiced.
According to the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯, the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯ was an excellent cultivation technique to tame animals.
During the taming of spirit beasts, one could use their 'Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Innate True Qi' to refine the spirit beast, allowing it to grow faster, get stronger, and become of higher quality... and it had other abstruse and mysterious effects as well.
In other words, the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯ was basically a small cheat to quickly raise spirit beasts!
Beyond that, Song Shuhang discovered another important thing from this book... each cultivation technique that was part of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯ had a method similar to the ❮Whale Swallowing Technique❯ to gobble up and absorb the energy inside spirit beast crystals.
Therefore, it wasn't uncommon for the disciples of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Sect to encounter the same problem as Song Shuhang, with their bodies getting filled with too much true qi and almost exploding.
At that time, these disciples of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Sect with too much true qi inside their bodies could use the method described in the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯ to pass it to their spirit beasts, refining them in the process.
During the refining process, one could even obtain a stream of pure energy back from the body of the spirit beast. Although the amount of energy was smaller than the original, its quality was higher. In addition, the spirit beast refining process would increase the strength of the disciple's constitution as well.
"..." Song Shuhang.
As expected, the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Sect had a way to take care of the negative effects of the ❮Whale Swallowing Technique❯.
If he could tame a spirit beast, he could use this method to pass the excessive amount of true qi or true liquid inside his body to the spirit beast, refining it while he was at it.
During this process, the quality of the true qi and true liquid would increase. As if that wasn't enough, even one's constitution would get stronger!
It was a cheat almost comparable to having a ghost spirit!
Song Shuhang sighed with emotion and said, "Now I understand why this cultivation technique was able to pique Senior White's interest."
Once Senior White was out of the ancient ruins, he would transcribe a copy of the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯ and give it to him.
At the same time, he thought of something. He still had two spirit beasts back home. They were precisely those two seahorses with the bloodline of a flood dragon that the stallion spirit had gifted him as an apology.
Song Shuhang still remembered that Young Master Phoenix Slayer almost whipped that stallion spirit to death after he discovered that the gift consisted in two seahorses.
Anyway, perhaps he could use those two seahorses to test the effects of the method described in the ❮Encyclopedia of Animal Taming❯ and see if the effects were really as incredible as described in the book.
Just as Song Shuhang was in deep thoughts, Sixteen's voice echoed from the room. "Shuhang, I'm done trying the clothes. You can enter."
Song Shuhang looked at the time. Unexpectedly, only seven minutes had passed.
It had been rather quick!
Usually, women would take their sweet time while trying on clothes; it was a very tedious and long process... he didn't expect that Sixteen would finish so quickly.
Song Shuhang pushed the door of the room open and looked inside.
In the next moment, he saw that Sixteen had changed into a red and white short cheongsam. It almost seemed as though this set of immortal clothing was something tailor-made for her. It suited her a lot.
This cheongsam-type immortal clothing really made Sixteen's slim waist stand out. In addition, Sixteen's legs were also slender and long if compared to the rest of her body.
A perfect score of 5/7!
"Does it look good?" Sixteen raised her head and pushed her short hair behind her ear, looking at Song Shuhang.
"It's perfect!" Song Shuhang gave the thumbs up and said, "Do the other clothes also suit you?"
"Yes, they all have the same size after all. Therefore, they all suit me," Sixteen said. She almost felt as though these clothes were tailor-made for her.
"That's great. In that case, I'll gift all the immortal clothing of this size to you, Sixteen." Song Shuhang felt that it was better to gift away this immortal clothing as soon as possible.
"In that case, I'll go ahead and accept the gift, is that fine?" Sixteen said with a smile. Actually, the style of the other several clothes was too cutesy and didn't really suit her.
"You are welcome!" Song Shuhang said with a smile. "The fact that you are willing to accept them lifts a weight off my shoulders."
Su Clan's Sixteen gently nodded her head and said, "What about the other clothes, how do you plan to deal with them?"
Song Shuhang held his chin and said, "There are several different sizes... hmm, I feel that the size below, which is slightly bigger than this, might suit Soft Feather. In addition, I owe her several favors as well. I'll try to gift them to her, but I'm not sure if she will like them or not."
Soft Feather's father was a certain Venerable Spirit Butterfly. Venerable Spirit Butterfly was an established Venerable with an incredible amount of resources and money. Therefore, there was a chance that Soft Feather didn't lack immortal clothing at all.
Moreover, wouldn't Venerable Spirit Butterfly misunderstand if Shuang were to gift some clothes to Soft Feather? In the Nine Provinces Number One Group, Venerable Spirit Butterfly was known as a powerful senior that liked to fuss over every single detail.
But after meeting with Venerable Spirit Butterfly, Song Shuhang got the impression that he was a very gentle senior, impartial towards the younger generation. Therefore, there shouldn't be any problem in the end, right? Song Shuhang's mind was filled with thoughts.
But what Song Shuhang didn't know was that Venerable Spirit Butterfly felt very uncomfortable when Shuhang bought Soft Feather those sandals. If he was to gift Soft Feather several sets of immortal clothing, with Soft Feather taking turns and wearing them every day, Venerable Spirit Butterfly might directly run away from home in tears.
"Hmm, there are clothes of even bigger size further below. I think they might be suitable for some of the other fairy maidens in the group. When the time comes, I'll see if I can gift them to those fairy maidens," Song Shuhang replied.
"..." Su Clan's Sixteen.
Song Shuhang looked at the 'speechless' Su Clan's Sixteen and asked cautiously, "Is that improper?"
As expected, gifting women's clothes left and right wasn't too proper! But if he couldn't gift them, would he have no choice but to keep them in the box to collect dust? Because he surely wasn't going to wear them himself!
Su Clan's Sixteen pondered for a moment and said, "You want to gift all this immortal clothing away, right?"
"Yes. After all, I have no use for them... and I don't think it's going to be too easy to exchange them for spirit stones. Therefore, I might as well gift them to someone," Song Shuhang said.
"In that case, give them all to me!" Su Clan's Sixteen said.
"Eh?" Song Shuhang was dumbfounded. "But the size of the other clothes..."
Su Clan's Sixteen raised her head and said full of confidence, "I'll grow up."
"..." Song Shuhang. Should he really believe Sixteen in regards to this matter?
"Cough. Anyway, I can gift the larger sizes to the several elder sisters in the Su Clan," Su Clan's Sixteen added.
When it came to the larger sizes, even Sixteen herself felt that she wouldn't be able to grow enough to wear them for a lifetime.
Song Shuhang thought for a moment and nodded his head, saying, "That's great, actually!"
After all, his objective was to gift these clothes away. Therefore, he might as well give them all to Sixteen. It would solve his problem in one go.
The corner of Sixteen's mouth rose as she said, "The value of this immortal clothing isn't low. Since I'm taking all of them, I'll give you something in return as compensation."
"There is really no need. There isn't anything I lack at this time," Song Shuhang replied.
"In that case, do you have a method to restrain your aura?" Sixteen asked.
"..." Song Shuhang.
He indeed had something similar. In the final part of the ❮Sea Urchin Warriors' 20 Years of Mandatory Education Manual❯ was a technique to conceal one's aura. However, he needed the effect of Soft Feather's shapeshifting brooch to use it. But the brooch was something that belonged to Soft Feather, and he had to give it back. In addition, the effects weren't that great, either.
"Since you reached the Third Stage Realm, you can study high-level cultivation techniques now. Given your dual—lightning and fire—attribute, you can learn basic magical techniques that can attract lightning and create fire out of nowhere. Unfortunately, you don't have the wind attribute. Otherwise, you could have studied several speed increasing techniques that would have come in handy during combat," Sixteen added.
When he heard about attracting lightning and creating fire out of thin air, Song Shuhang's eyes immediately lit up. Alright, magical techniques were indeed something he lacked. When he saw the 'Lightning Palm' back then, he was so excited that he couldn't sleep for the whole night.
Sixteen also added, "Moreover, have you already taken care of your cultivation technique of the Third Stage?"
"Yes, that's already taken care of. Venerable White has the follow-up part of the cultivation technique I practice. I just have to wait for him to come out of the ancient ruins to continue with my training," Song Shuhang replied.
Venerable White didn't expect that Song Shuhang would advance in realm so quickly. Therefore, he didn't leave behind the third volume of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯.
In addition, he could learn another 'footwork' from Venerable White now that he had reached the Third Stage Realm. Back then, Venerable White showed him several different types of footwork, and Song Shuhang took a liking to all of them.
Then, after he learned several different types of technique... he would look for an opportunity to find Senior Phoenix Slayer!
