The spectating seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group gently laughed and looked at Song Shuhang with gazes full of pity.
Song Shuhang, a cultivator of the Third Stage Realm, had managed to crash and fall to the ground while trying to jump on a stage that wasn't even very high! What had happened simply went against the principles of cultivation!
Northern River's Loose Cultivator rubbed his eyes and said at this time, "Wait a moment, am I seeing things?"
He didn't notice it earlier, but now that he paid more attention, he saw a faint layer of 'starlight' all over Song Shuhang's body. This layer of 'starlight' was something that only cultivators of the Third Stage that were about to open their first meridian, the Dazzling Star Meridian, or had already opened it, could have!
The Third Stage Realm?
What kind of joke was that!?
The last time he saw little friend Song Shuhang was during the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform right before the hand-guided tractor competition.
Back then, little friend Song Shuhang used a special technique to turn into Miss Chu Chu from the Chu Family and fought in her stead on the Grievance Settling Platform, breaking through and becoming a cultivator of the Second Stage Realm during the battle.
How much time had passed since the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform? During this short period of time, little friend Song Shuhang had managed to open his eight dantians and transcend the tribulation of the Second Stage?
Am I having a hallucination? Northern River's Loose Cultivator poked at the nearby Medicine Master and said, "Brother Medicine Master, can you check little friend Shuhang's cultivation realm for me?"
"Ding, ding, ding~" Medicine Master turned his head around, and the small bells tied to his hair resounded.
"..." Northern River's Loose Cultivator.
Medicine Master replied, "His cultivation level is the Third Stage Realm. Judging from his aura, he broke through not too long ago."
"The speed he's advancing at is simply scary!" Northern River's Loose Cultivator exclaimed. "I'm thoroughly shocked."
"..." Medicine Master.
F*ck, shouldn't I be the most shocked one?
Six months ago, he was the one that went to meet little friend Song Shuhang and carried out a transaction with him for the 'Poisonous Dragon Plant', getting from Great Master Profound Principle the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ and ❮True Self Meditation Scripture❯ and leading little friend Song Shuhang on the path of cultivation.
Now, in the blink of an eye, little friend Song Shuhang had already become a cultivator of the Third Stage Realm.
At this time, Medicine Master was still wondering how to flawlessly advance in realm and obtain a Golden Core with seven dragon patterns while breaking through to the Fifth Stage Realm. Therefore, he himself was still at the Fourth Stage Realm. What a disgrace!
"That was unexpected. Is the talent of our little friend Seven Dao Names really this incredible?" True Monarch Fallout asked in puzzlement.
But right at this time, Young Master Phoenix Slayer pushed his glasses up, with rays of wisdom refracting from his lenses, and said, "I think I know the reason."
"Young Master Phoenix Slayer, which conclusion did you reach?" Northern River's Loose Cultivator asked out of curiosity.
Fairy Lychee said, "Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer and little friend Song Shuhang swapped bodies a few times. Therefore, he might have discovered some secret."
Young Master Phoenix Slayer pushed his glasses up once more and said calmly, "Look there. Do you see that white-haired daoist priest eating a fruit, the one standing right next to the members of the movie crew?"
"That daoist priest...? What's unusual about him?"
"If I'm not mistaken, he should be the rumored 'Frenzied Strength Imparter', Daoist Priest Horizon," Young Master Phoenix Slayer said. "Therefore, there is only one reason for Song Shuhang's strength increasing so quickly in such a short amount of time!"
Northern River's Loose Cultivator, Fairy Lychee, Medicine Master, and True Monarch Fallout said at the same time, "Is it possible that he received pure energy from the Frenzied Strength Imparter, which caused his realm to progress by leaps and bounds?"
"That must be the case," Young Master Phoenix Slayer said.
True Monarch Tyrant Flood Dragon added, "You are not mistaken. That's indeed Daoist Priest Horizon; I've seen him once in the past. Everyone should pay close attention to their descendants and not let them get close to Daoist Priest Horizon. Otherwise, he will forcefully impart strength on to them."
Northern River's Loose Cultivator reminded out of kindness, "Fellow Daoist Tyrant Flood Dragon, it seems that Daoist Priest Horizon has been living in your daughter Yu Jiaojiao's villa all along."
"F*ck!" True Monarch Tyrant Flood Dragon was temporarily at a loss. Then, he started looking for Yu Jiaojiao to tell her not to let Daoist Priest Horizon impart strength on to her.
In a distant place, the corner of Daoist Priest Horizon's mouth twitched while he silently took a bite of his meat sandwich.
After all, he was a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor.
Even if those fellow daoists were speaking in a low voice, he could still hear them! His heart was deeply wounded at this time.
On the martial arts stage.
Song Shuhang rubbed his face and got up.
Venerable White said, "Shuhang, is everything alright?"
Song Shuhang waved his hand and said, "I'm fine. I wasn't injured or anything."
"Mister Song, do you want to use a substitute for this scene?" the vice-director of the movie crew asked. After all, this Mister Song wasn't an actor but the investor that wanted to shoot the movie.
The opposite party made such a generous offer that they were simply unable to reject. It was better if nothing bad happened to such a 'God of Wealth'.
"Thanks but no need. It was just an accident. I will absolutely not fail the next time." Song Shuhang smiled brightly and waved his hand.
In addition... if it turned out that he was bad at acting, he could retreat and let the western monk enter the stage!
"In that case, should we make a fresh start?" the vice-director said.
"Sure. Let's make a fresh start." Song Shuhang patted the dust on his body away and returned to his original position.
Everyone got ready again.
The script supervisor clapped the clapperboard.
Director Jacob shouted once more, "Action!"
Venerable White, who was playing Ling Ye's role, slowly got on the stage again. A gentle breeze blew over, making his long black hair and light blue daoist robe flutter in the wind.
Direction Jacob couldn't help but sigh with emotion in his heart. This actor named 'Song Bai' was so handsome that mere words weren't enough to describe him. It wasn't an exaggeration to say that he was the embodiment of handsomeness and beauty!
He was an individual that didn't even need any acting skill to become popular. He just had to calmly get on the stage and stand there doing nothing to make countless fans scream in ecstasy.
Director Jacob dared to bet that if he made a 60 minutes movie without any plot or script but with just the actor 'Song Bai' walking to the stage and standing there with a light breeze blowing and making his hair and daoist robe flutter… he would sell like crazy. The cinema would be filled to the brim, and the movie would stay on the most popular chart for several weeks.
This was how scary the charm of this person was.
But it wasn't only the actor called 'Song Bai' that was handsome. That ' Gu Hu 1 ' guy standing on the edge of the stage with his arms crossed and a cold expression on his face was also quite handsome.
In addition, this Gu Hu had the aura of an otherworldly expert. Even if he didn't have any talent for acting, one only had to throw him in a random idol movie to have a satisfactory main character.
Then, the investor that funded the movie, Song Shuhang—who had just failed the flip and crashed to the ground—was also a boy with fine and delicate features.
Although Director Jacob had accepted to shoot this movie just for the generous money offer, it wasn't out of the question that this same movie might now make his career as a director reach new heights.
At the very least, he was sure that the movie would sell like crazy at the box office.
Just as he was in deep thoughts, Song Shuhang had once again entered the range of the camera.
Just like before, after Junior Brother No.1 and Junior Brother No.2 finished their lines, Song Shuhang performed Senior Brother Gao Sheng's part and facing Ling Ye, who was on the martial arts stage, said coldly, "Ling Ye, this time, I'll beat you so badly that you won't be able to get out of bed for a whole month."
After finishing his lines, Song Shuhang stepped on the ground with force and jumped up.
This time, he carefully adjusted his posture while he was flipping midair.
Senior White, give me your blessings! I don't want to fail again! Song Shuhang shouted in his mind.
In the next moment, he successfully completed the beautiful 360-degree flip in the sky and landed on the stage.
It was a success! Song Shuhang was somewhat excited. Unexpectedly, Shuhang got excited after doing a 360-degree flip from a height less than two meters even though he was already a cultivator of the Third Stage.
Next... it was Riverly Purple Mist's turn to appear on stage while playing the role of Senior Sister Murong Hua.
Riverly Purple Mist, who had a slightly wicked nature, fully displayed her acting skills after appearing on stage.
At this time, she looked as gentle as water. The ominous aura in her eyes had disappeared and turned into concern and gentleness. After appearing, she didn't say any word and just stood in place, sweetly gazing at Venerable White, who was playing Ling Ye's role.
Song Shuhang guessed that Riverly Purple Mist must have replaced Venerable White's image with Medicine Master's in her mind to display such a lovely expression.
Director Jacob was very satisfied. The acting skills of these actors were very good and far surpassed his expectations.
"Hmph." Song Shuhang coldly snorted and said, "Ling Ye, this time... which one of your legs do you want me to break?"
Song Shuhang didn't expect that he would be the one to play Senior Brother Gao Sheng's role in the end. If he had known earlier, he would have asked Gao Moumou to change the lines because the current ones made him feel quite restless.
"Senior Brother Gao, it's not our first time competing on the martial arts stage. Therefore, there is no need for useless chit-chat," Venerable White said calmly. "What do you want to compete in this time?"
"We have already competed in swords, spears, fists, kicks, and staffs. Therefore, your senior brother will teach you a little about saber techniques this time." The corner of Song Shuhang's mouth rose in an evil smile.
Without even realizing it, Shuhang had also put himself in the shoes of the character he was playing.
Song Shuhang slowly unsheathed the treasured saber Broken Tyrant. Broken Tyrant didn't have a sheath originally. However, they decided to use one during the shooting so that it could give Shuhang a more awe-inspiring aura.
After experiencing the heavenly lightning a second time, all the formations and restrictions on the body of the treasured saber Broken Tyrant had been wiped out, with the blade turning even blacker and sharper.
"I'll fight saber with saber. I'm not afraid of you," Venerable White said in a grave tone. Then, he took a steel saber from the shelf on the martial arts stage with a serious expression on his face.
Next was precisely the scene where Senior Brother Gao Sheng would savagely beat up the main character Ling Ye.
Venerable White and Song Shuhang had already reached an agreement before getting on stage.
Song Shuhang would use 'basic saber techniques', and after twenty moves, Venerable White would start showing signs of 'losing'.
Then, after thirty moves, the magnificent battle would come to an end with Venerable White getting knocked down.
Song Shuhang waved the saber and prepared to use basic saber techniques.
"Junior Brother Ling Ye, let your senior brother teach you how to use a saber!" Song Shuhang used the ❮Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk❯ footwork and instantaneously arrived next to Venerable White.
Afterward, the saber slashed out!
Although they were just acting, both the strength and angle of Song Shuhang's slash were perfect.
Venerable White unconsciously raised his saber to block the incoming attack.
In the next moment, a burst of strength that Song Shuhang couldn't even fathom was transmitted over from Senior White's saber, sending him flying...
Senior White, didn't we agree that it would be Senior Brother Gao Sheng bullying Ling Ye?
