Could there really be such a coincidence? Just now, he casually mentioned Senior White Two's name, and Venerable White appeared immediately after and overheard him!
Eh? Wait! It seemed that he could freely mention Senior White Two's name in this 'Battle Arena Dimension'! In that case... did it mean that he could tell Venerable White everything he knew about that mysterious 'Senior White Two' as long as he was in this special dimension?
Song Shuhang sat cross-legged, and said to Meteor Sword, "Senior White, the person I was talking about earlier wasn't you."
"Ah?" Venerable White's confused voice was transmitted from Meteor Sword.
"Senior White, the place I'm currently in is called 'Battle Arena Dimension'; it's a place with very special properties. While I'm here, I can freely tell you about all those things that got previously censored." Song Shuhang tried to make the best use of his time.
He had no idea how long this 'Battle Arena Dimension' would last. Therefore, it was better to make haste and tell all the matters related to 'Senior White Two' to Venerable White.
"Oh? Are you talking about that content that would turn into 'beep, beep, beep~' or other similar sounds whenever you mentioned it?" Venerable White's curious voice was transmitted from Meteor Sword. From little friend Song Shuhang's tone, it seemed that the censored content was related to him.
Song Shuhang quickly replied, "Yes, it's precisely that content. Senior White, don't be too surprised once you hear what I'm about to tell you. Back then, when I was dragged into that dreamland originated from the curse of the ancient Jet-Black Sect, I was lucky enough to meet a certain senior that saved me and got me out of there. However, the senior that appeared in my dream back then... looked exactly the same as you, Senior White! Whether it was demeanor, aura, or even charm, they were exactly the same as yours! That senior said that he was a member of the Netherworld Realm camp. In addition, the name of that senior is also composed of a single word... 'White'."
"Eh? He looks the same as me? This sounds very interesting!" Venerable White's voice was transmitted from Meteor Sword. There was actually someone that looked the same as him in this world, and even their demeanor and charm were the same...
If the two of them were to meet, they would surely get along, wouldn't they?
"As such, I decided to rename that Senior White to 'Senior White Two'," Song Shuhang continued.
"But why did you go for 'Senior White Rabbit'?" Venerable White asked out of curiosity. "Is it possible that this other 'White' that looks the same as me was born in the Year of the Rabbit?"
Song Shuhang replied, "No, this 'two' I'm talking about is the English word for the number two."
"Oh... I see, I see," Venerable White said.
"Senior White, that Senior White Two then started to look for a way to investigate you. In addition, it seems he doesn't know much about our world, since he had been staying in the Netherworld Realm all along. Therefore, you should be wary of the actions of the opposite party from now on, Senior White," Song Shuhang continued.
"He wants to investigate me? Hmm, it makes sense. Even I feel like knowing more about him after hearing your story," Venerable White replied. "Do you have any idea what his background is?"
"I'm not too sure, either. I tried to inquire several times, but I wasn't able to obtain any information about his identity. Anyway, I also tried to probe out another matter... hmm, right. Senior White, I can talk about this matter only if you promise not to hit me later," Song Shuhang said after pondering for a moment.
"Sure, go ahead," Venerable White said straightforwardly.
"In order to test the reaction of that Senior White Two, I repeated a certain sentence from that green-clothed young man riding a white horse in front of him. Yes, it was precisely that particular sentence... as for the content, you should also know, Senior White. Anyway, that Senior White Two was greatly affected by that sentence, and it felt as though he was going to kill the witness to conceal his crimes—as such, he immediately prevented me from speaking further. His reaction was the same as you, Senior White," Song Shuhang said.
"..." Venerable White.
"Therefore, I started to wonder, just what kind of relationship is there between you and Senior White Two? Otherwise, can there really be such a coincidence that both of you met that green-clothed young man riding a white horse and got a love confession from him?" Song Shuhang was in detective mode at this time, and he was making bold guesses from the few clues at his disposal.
Just as Song Shuhang was getting more and more excited, Venerable White's calm voice was transmitted from Meteor Sword. "Little friend Shuhang, if you don't bring up this matter again, we can still be good friends."
In other words, if little friend Shuhang kept mentioning this matter, he wouldn't be friends with Venerable White anymore, and might even end up in his blacklist.
And if he ended up in Venerable White's blacklist... it was over.
Song Shuhang immediately stopped with his guesses.
"Anyway... I still have to thank you, little friend Shuhang," Venerable White said with a smile. "You've told me something quite interesting this time. Perhaps I should form a team to explore the Netherworld Realm next?"
Song Shuhang forced a smile, and said, "Well, if there is an opportunity in the future..." The Netherworld Realm was a very dangerous place, and it was better not to go there if possible. At the very least, he had no intention of going there until he was strong enough.
"In that case, how about forming a team and heading to the Netherworld Realm once we are done exploring those ruins at the bottom of the sea?" Venerable White suggested.
"Senior White, before heading to the Netherworld Realm... is it possible to explore that 'forbidden area' that Daoist Priest Li Tiansu discovered?" Song Shuhang proposed.
Song Shuhang preferred to go to that forbidden area rather the dangerous Netherworld Realm.
Li Yinzhu was still in the Time City of the new Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, tormented by that cold disease. Who knew, perhaps they would find the cure to that disease in the forbidden area...
"Oh, you are right. There is also that interesting forbidden area. I almost forgot about it," Venerable White said with a nod. "In that case, we will head to the Netherworld Realm right after we are done exploring that forbidden area."
Senior White was very dedicated. If he found an interesting place he wanted to visit, he would surely find the time to go there.
Song Shuhang took a look at the date, and said, "Senior White, if you want to go the Netherworld Realm, I might be unable to join you."
"Eh? You aren't interested in heading to the Netherworld Realm and looking for White Rabbit?" Venerable White asked out of curiosity.
...Who the hell is White Rabbit?!
Song Shuhang coughed, and said, "The problem is that my university should also start around that time."
It had surely been a lively summer vacation, full of events—to the point that the number of things he experienced during his whole life couldn't match up to what he experienced during this summer vacation alone.
However, no matter how incredible and interesting this summer vacation had been, he would inevitably have to face the fact that his university would start soon.
'Mister Time' was truly cruel at times.
Name: Little friend Song Shuhang.
Height: 182 cm.
Institute: Jiangnan University, Mechanical Engineering Faculty, Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Academy, Department 19, Class 43.
Aside from being a cultivator, Song Shuhang had another identity. He was part of the country's future generation of fine students.
"Oh? Right, university! I almost forgot that little friend Shuhang is still a student." Venerable White's voice was transmitted again. "It really brings back memories. I remember that a long, long time ago, I also got to see an old-style tutorial school and experience how strict the teachers in that place were..."
Venerable White suddenly stopped while he was speaking.
After a short moment, he said, "Eh? After recalling for a while, I discovered that I actually never went to school. Back then, when I was an orphan, I passed by the periphery of an old-style tutorial school several times, looking with envy at the other children of the same age getting into the school."
Going to school also seemed quite interesting!
When he came out of secluded meditation, and Song Shuhang brought him back to the Jiangnan area, the latter was almost done with his finals. Therefore, Venerable White missed again the opportunity to 'go to school'.
Song Shuhang blinked his eyes. Senior White's train of thought was changing too quickly, and he had no idea how to react.
"Hmm, such being the case, we can put off this matter related to the Netherworld Realm until later," Venerable White muttered to himself.
"Senior White, what kind of interesting matter did you think of?" Song Shuhang had already guessed what it might be. However, he felt that it was still better to ask Venerable White directly.
"For now... let's keep it a secret!" Venerable White's mood was very good now that he had thought of something even more interesting. "Good. Little friend Shuhang, grab onto my Meteor Sword. I will get you out of that place!"
"Sure." Song Shuhang quickly stretched out his hands and grabbed Meteor Sword.
"Buzzzz~" Meteor Sword issued a light sword cry, and transmitted a friendly feeling to Song Shuhang. Meteor Sword's intelligence was steadily increasing.
Afterward, Meteor Sword dragged Song Shuhang into a space crack under Venerable White's instruction, and got him out of the Battle Arena Dimension.
Just as he was passing through the space crack, those 88,888 voices in Song Shuhang's were triggered and continuously reverberated in his mind.
He felt that his comprehension of the 'secret appraisal technique' had increased by a notch, and this was something good.
The better his comprehension of the secret appraisal technique, the lower the price he would have to pay while appraising a certain object.
It was like cutting a tree with a stone axe or a steel saw—the better the tool, the lower the effort to perform the same task.
At this time, if he were to take off his glove and appraise the Earth... hmm, he would spurt blood from all over his body and die. But if he were to appraise a rock or something similar, the price he would have to pay would be very small.
Meteor Sword brought Song Shuhang back to the level of the demons of the Fourth Stage.
Su Clan's Sixteen arrived in front of him and asked very worriedly, "Shuhang, how did it go with that demonic hamster?"
The broadcast of the battle in the 'Battle Arena Dimension' was suddenly interrupted when the arena was wrapped up within that layer of golden light. Therefore, the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group had no idea how the fight between Song Shuhang and that demonic hamster went. Who was the winner, and who was the loser?
Song Shuhang held Meteor Sword in one hand, and organized his thoughts, quickly explaining what happened during the fight. "As the fight progressed, I was slightly at a disadvantage. Cough... afterward, I used the 'transparent barrier' talisman that Fairy Lychee gave me, and since the demonic hamster was unable to break through my defense, I seized the opportunity to glue a few evil-warding and sword talismans onto its face. In the end, it left the place before me through that strange power of space."
"Ahaha, in that case, it's a good thing that little friend Shuhang wasn't injured," Medicine Master said with a smile.
