Somewhat worried, Daoist Priest Horizon said, "But if we send Fellow Daoist Creation abroad to sing... won't that give rise to an international dispute? After all, the lethality of Fellow Daoist Creation's voice is simply too high."
As long as he was given the right equipment and means, the lethality of Dharma King Creation's voice could surpass that of a nuclear bomb! If they were careless, the world itself might end!
PS: Since he was a senior monk with high strength, Dharma King Creation was proficient in many languages.
Great Master Swallow Cloud was lost in thoughts. It was indeed a big problem that he couldn't overlook.
Gao Moumou was still dead drunk and in no condition to discuss the plot of the movie with Great Master Swallow Cloud. Thereupon, Great Master also settled in Yu Jiaojiao's villa after obtaining permission from the owner.
Yu Jiaojiao's villa was very big, and there were a lot of rooms that guests could use.
After eating breakfast, Song Shuhang headed toward the practice room behind Yu Jiaojiao's villa and started a new day of training.
Due to his constitution not being strong enough, Song Shuhang wished he could use every minute and second at his disposal to practice and strengthen his body.
He first practiced the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ and ❮Immovable Body of the Buddha❯. Then, it was the turn of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ he learned today in the Jingang Immortal Cave.
His comprehension of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ was still at the beginner level as of now. He really missed Young Master Phoenix Slayer's CPU at this moment. As long as he could borrow his CPU, his comprehension of the first two styles of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯ would reach the master level within a very short period of time.
After practicing fist techniques, it was the turn of the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯, ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯, and ❮Inverted Scale Saber Technique❯.
In the end, it was the turn of the ❮Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk❯ and ❮Celestial Sprint❯ footwork. However, the ❮Celestial Sprint❯ wasn't just a movement technique; it was a body tempering technique as well. It had excellent effects on one's constitution when matched with the ❮Steel Hands Technique❯.
After training these sets of martial skills, he sat down cross-legged and started practicing the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯.
The nearby Su Clan's Sixteen was performing some simple saber slashing movements, but her vision didn't leave Song Shuhang for the whole time he was practicing.
Cultivators couldn't learn many magical techniques before reaching the Fourth Stage, and they couldn't ride a flying sword, either. As such, they had to mainly rely on martial skills during fights before reaching that level.
Song Shuhang possessed an exquisite bare-handed fist technique. As for armed fighting, he possessed fine saber and sword techniques. In addition, that scholarly footwork was very practical and pleasing to the eye. For now, Song Shuhang didn't lack anything when it came to martial skills.
As for cultivation techniques, he just had to wait for Venerable White to come out of the ruins to continue with his practice under his guidance.
Without even realizing it, Song Shuhang had matured up to this point.
"I need to give my all as well," Su Clan's Sixteen muttered to herself. If she kept delaying her breakthrough, Song Shuhang might end up catching up to her!
Very soon, Song Shuhang finished revolving his true qi according to the method described in the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique❯. The true qi inside his body had become richer, with the true liquid in the 'great river of true qi' surging forward like the water of a river.
Now, he only had to wait to obtain the follow-up cultivation technique from Venerable White to continue practicing and open the first meridian of the Third Stage, the Dazzling Star Meridian.
After Song Shuhang was done with his practice, Su Clan's Sixteen put her saber in the sheath and called out, "Shuhang."
Song Shuhang replied, "Hmm?"
Su Clan's Sixteen said, "How is your condition? Since we have free time now, I might as well teach you the 'Aura Concealing' and 'Aura Detecting' methods!"
Being able to conceal one's aura was a must-have skill for a cultivator. It was useful for both surprise attacks and appearing weak in front of the enemy.
As a matter of fact, the 'Aura Concealing' method was something that powerful cultivators had created to avoid making weaker cultivator feel too much pressure with their presence.
If powerful cultivators didn't restrain their aura, the waves of spiritual energy, pressure, sword intent, and so on that their body inadvertently emitted would make weaker cultivators collapse directly. If powerful cultivators didn't know how to restrain their aura, they would have a hard time interacting with their weaker descendants.
It was only later that the 'Aura Concealing' method was used for other things as well.
"Sure!" Song Shuhang got up from the ground with a jump and said, "Right, Sixteen. I obtained the ❮Sea Urchin Warriors' 20 Years of Mandatory Education Manual❯ some time ago, and there was a small technique that sea urchin warriors could use to conceal one's aura illustrated above. Is there any connection between that technique and the 'Aura Concealing' you talked about?"
"I never got the chance to see which method the sea urchin warriors use to conceal their aura," Su Clan's Sixteen said with a smile. "I will teach you these two methods first. Then, you can see for yourself if there is any similarity... is that fine?"
"That works too." Song Shuhang nodded his head. But then, he suddenly recalled a matter and said, "Sixteen, wait a moment. These 'Aura Concealing' and 'Aura Detecting' methods aren't secret methods of your Spirit River Su Clan that can't be passed down to others, right?"
Sixteen shook her head and said, "Don't worry. These two skills aren't really a secret. More than half of the cultivators in the world can use them."
"Oh, it's fine then," Song Shuhang said.
The two methods looked rather simple at first glance, but Song Shuhang found out about their complexity while studying them.
With Su Clan's Sixteen guiding him step by step, Song Shuhang needed but a morning to grasp the two methods.
Of course, it was only thanks to the enlightenment stone that the process was so smooth. Without the help of the stone, Song Shuhang would have needed a whole day to learn them.
Anyway, the 'Aura Concealing' method could be used in two different ways.
The first type of use: it could eliminate the energy and pressure that the body of a cultivator was emanating for a short period of time, making them look the same as an ordinary person. This method was the same as a person holding their breath; it couldn't be used for a long period of time. After some time, the cultivator wouldn't be able to block the spiritual energy and pressure that their body was emanating anymore, ending up releasing them again. However, the method was still useful to shake off enemies within that period of time or making surprise attacks.
The second type of use: the cultivator could conceal their real strength through the usage of the 'Aura Concealing' method, but it was impossible to use this variant to weaken their aura to the point of looking like an ordinary person. This method was the same as a person slowing down their breath. As long as the circumstances allowed it, they could keep it up indefinitely.
As soon as he learned the technique, Song Shuhang could hold on for around nine seconds while using the technique in its first form. Then, after using the second form, his realm was suppressed only until the peak of the Second Stage Realm. He definitely needed to practice this technique further.
As for the 'Aura Detecting' method, it could be used to lock onto the aura of other cultivators. The more proficient one was in its usage, the higher the range of the technique. Powerful cultivators could lock onto their enemy even if they were in other dimensions.
Actually, this method was somewhat similar to that small mental energy trick he had found in the Nine Provinces Number One Group, the 'mental detection' technique. Nevertheless, the 'Aura Detecting' method was something that combined mental energy and true qi or spiritual energy while locking the enemy. Its effects were much stronger, and it could be regarded as an upgraded version of the 'mental detection' technique.
Su Clan's Sixteen narrowed her eyes in a smile and said, "This should be enough for this morning. In the afternoon, I will teach you those techniques to attract lightning and summon fire out of nowhere."
"Good!" Song Shuhang replied. Although he wished he could learn that technique to attract lightning immediately, there wasn't enough time. Yu Jiaojiao's maidservants had already come over to tell Su Clan's Sixteen and Song Shuhang that the meal was ready.
In the dining room.
Gao Moumou, Yayi, and Li Yangde and Tubo had already woken up. After waking up, the four of them were full of energy and weren't dispirited due to the hangover. Yu Jiaojiao's liquor was very good. Although it was strong, it wouldn't go to one's head. People would quickly get drunk but feel clear-minded and invigorated upon waking up.
At this time, Gao Moumou and the others were already having the meal.
However, Tubo was quickly typing on the tablet.
"Tubo, what are you doing?" Song Shuhang arrived behind Tubo and glanced at the screen of his tablet.
Soon after, he discovered that Tubo was finishing summer school assignments.
The title of the project was: Winter and Summer School Assignments—Elementary School's Second Year—Language and Literature.
"..." Song Shuhang.
Tubo raised his head and looked at Song Shuhang, forcing a smile and saying, "I'm helping my younger cousin, doing these summer school assignments in his stead. He kept fooling around and didn't do his homework. But now that it's already the 10th day of the month, he started to get anxious and begged me to help him."
"Tubo, did you leave some incriminating evidence behind that your younger cousin is now using to blackmail you?" The nearby Gao Moumou pushed his glasses up and hit the nail on the head.
"How could that be? How can a little brat get incriminating evidence against me? Wahaha... hahaha..."
"..." Song Shuhang.
Now then, how did Tubo pass the entrance examination of Jiangnan University in the first place?
After making a hollow laugh, Tubo noticed Su Clan's Sixteen standing behind Song Shuhang. Therefore, he resolutely shifted the topic of conversation. "Shuhang, who is that girl standing behind you? She's very cute, is she your younger sister?"
"..." Song Shuhang.
He felt as though Su Clan's Sixteen was about to have a fit.
"Tubo." Song Shuhang gently patted his friend and said, "She's my friend, Shiliu 1 . And if we are talking about age, you should call her Elder Sister Shiliu."
"How is that possible? She is so short," Tubo said thoughtlessly.
Song Shuhang felt that his friend was incurable. His heart was too honest and mouth too fast!
In the meantime, Scholar Xian Gong was looking for helpers.
But even after contacting several friends, he still felt that he didn't have 100% assurance of capturing that demodragon without letting it slip through his hands.
Perhaps it was better to look for a few other fellow daoists and ask them for help.
Thereupon, he thought of the fellow daoists in the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
The first one he thought of was Su Clan's Seven, whose strength was unrivaled in the Fifth Stage Realm. Seven's saber intent was so strong that even cultivators of the Sixth Stage didn't dare to meet it head-on.
If Su Clan's Seven could come over and give him a hand, he would be even more confident in taking down that demodragon.
Beyond that, he just happened to have some good news that could rouse Seven's interest.
Scholar Xian Gong swiped on his mobile phone and gave Seven a call.
The call quickly connected and Scholar Xian Gong went straight to the point. "Fellow Daoist Seven, I have some good information related to Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram that I would like to tell you."
"News about Copper Trigram? That's great. Anyway, Senior Xian Gong, can you wait for a moment?" Su Clan's Seven quickly said. "I will call you back as soon as I'm done dealing with this baboon."
After saying this much, Su Clan's Seven hung up the call.
In front of him, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber had been tied up until turning into a rice dumpling. He looked like a wriggling worm at this moment.
"Thrice Reckless, are you still trying to escape?" Su Clan's Seven sneered. Back when they were at Fellow Daoist Medicine Master's place, Su Clan's Seven was compassionate enough to set Thrice Reckless Mad Saber free.
As such, both he and Thrice Reckless passed the night in Medicine Master's home yesterday.
But when Su Clan's Seven woke up today, he discovered that someone had placed him inside a coffin and buried him underground...
