After ordinary cultivators of the Third Stage had broken through one of their four mysterious meridians, they would need to train for a certain period of time to adapt to the increase in power that the opening of the 'mysterious meridian' had brought them. Afterward, they would need to strengthen their constitution and accumulated true qi so that they could break through the next mysterious meridian.
However, the current level of Song Shuhang's constitution was already far beyond his realm. At this time, his constitution was infinitely approaching that of a cultivator that had opened his fourth meridian, the 'Immaterial King Meridian'. In addition, the 'Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Innate True Qi' he'd originally possessed had been temporarily replaced by the spiritual energy of the Fifth Stage that Senior Sister Ye Si was transmitting over. This process was very similar to the strength imparting of a powerful expert.
Of course... there were still some differences between the two processes.
The strength that Senior Sister Ye Si was transmitting over was very gentle, and Song Shuhang didn't need to refine it. The only problem was that the amount of energy that was being transmitted over was no match for the one transmitted during the 'strength imparting' process.
The 'strength imparting' process consisted in forcefully pouring energy into one's body. On the other hand, the spiritual energy that Senior Sister Ye Si was transmitting over was like a small and long-lasting stream.
At this time, the second meridian in Song Shuhang's body, the Overcast Moon Meridian, was especially aggrieved.
What was happening was no fun at all!
Whenever other people wanted to break through one of their four mysterious meridians, they would have to gather all the true qi and energy in their body and fight a major battle against the 'four mysterious meridians'. Sometimes, they would even need to close up for several months in order to break through one of their mysterious meridians.
On the other hand, Song Shuhang had hired a powerful helper and had this helper brutally beat up the 'Overcast Moon Meridian' to the point that the 'Overcast Moon Meridian' didn't have any strength retaliate or resist.
Given the speed Shuhang was progressing at, in half a day at most, the Overcast Moon Meridian would be broken through.
Senior Sister Ye Si rummaged through Song Shuhang's size-reducing purse in a flurry, looking for the medicinal pills. There was a lot of medicinal pills in Song Shuhang's size-reducing purse, and she had no idea which ones were used to recover true qi and physical energy.
But right at this time, Lady Onion cutely raised her small hand and passed her two types of medicinal pills. One was the 'Volcano Pill' that the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group had gifted Song Shuhang back then, while the other was a type of medicinal pills to replenish physical energy that Song Shuhang had gotten from Branch Leader Jing Mo's belongings.
"Teacher, you are probably looking for these two types of medicinal pills," Lady Onion said. After all, she was studying Senior Sister Ye Si's ❮Tome of Never-Ending Tears❯, and she could be considered as a disciple of hers.
Therefore, it wasn't wrong to call her 'teacher'.
"Thank you." Senior Sister Ye Si took the medicinal pills from Lady Onion's hand and fed one pill of each type to Song Shuhang.
"Shuhang, do you feel a little better?" Senior Sister Ye Si asked.
As expected, there were some differences between Senior Sister Ye Si and ordinary ghost spirits. Ordinary ghost spirits were one with their master. The two parties didn't only share their energy, but also their thoughts and sensory organs... of course, that was unless the connection between the two parties was forcefully cut off.
Anyway, it didn't seem that Song Shuhang and Senior Sister Ye Si shared their thoughts and sensory organs... or perhaps the two of them had instinctively cut off the thoughts and sensory organs sharing?
"Huff... yes, I feel much better now," Song Shuhang said.
But right at this time, in the Jade Lake, the silver-armored female guard looked at Song Shuhang, and said, "Fellow Daoist, what came out of your body wasn't an enemy? In that case, you don't need us to kill her, right?"
Song Shuhang waved his hand, and said, "Thanks, but yes, there is no need."
"Oh," the silver-armored female guard muttered. Then, she maintained her 'on alert' posture in case Song Shuhang decided to barge into the Jade Lake again.
At the same time, she would raise her head from time to time and glance at Senior Sister Ye Si.
After feeding Song Shuhang those medicinal pills, Senior Sister Ye Si likewise lowered her head and gazed at that female guard in the Jade Lake below.
The two of them looked at each other without saying a word.
Then, the female guard of the Jade Lake asked, "Fellow Daoist... have we met before?"
Senior Sister Ye Si shook her head, and said, "From what I remember, I've never seen you before."
"Oh," the female guard of the Jade Lake said. "Fellow Daoist, I'm getting a very familiar and gentle feeling from your body. However, I'm unable to recall where I've seen you."
Senior Sister Ye Si slightly nodded but didn't reply.
Soon after, Senior Sister Ye Si's voice echoed in Song Shuhang's head. She didn't use the secret sound transmission method, but directly spoke in his mind. "Shuhang, I feel somewhat restless after seeing those several armored guards below. I have the impulse to tear them to shreds!"
Although there were some differences between this method and the 'thought sharing' of normal ghost spirits, it seemed that Song Shuhang and Senior Sister Ye Si could directly 'speak' into each other's mind.
"Why would you get this kind of strange feeling?" Song Shuhang asked out of curiosity.
"I don't know... this feeling is very strange. It's very similar to the intimate feeling I get while seeing that Fairy Lychee. I have no idea how or why it happens," Senior Sister Ye Si replied.
"..." Song Shuhang.
That mysterious feeling of kinship between Senior Sister Ye Si and Fairy Lychee was something that Song Shuhang had experienced firsthand. That feeling was simply too strange.
"It's bad... I feel that I'll really rush over to tear those armored female guards apart if I look at them any further. I'll go back first," Senior Sister Ye Si said.
Song Shuhang asked, "Go back?"
Was it possible that Senior Sister Ye Si could enter inside his body like a normal ghost spirit?
Just as this thought flashed through his mind, Senior Sister Ye Si, who was hugging him from behind, started to 'fuse' with Song Shuhang's body.
During the process, Song Shuhang felt once again that weak and numb feeling in his back. This bittersweet feeling was simply too comfortable.
However, Senior Sister Ye Si suddenly stopped halfway through the process.
"Did you get stuck?" Song Shuhang asked.
"No, it's just that I felt that our current appearance was very cool!" Senior Sister Ye Si said. At this time, her body below the waist had already fused with Song Shuhang's body.
She and Song Shuhang were currently displaying the weakened version of the 'Three Heads and Six Arms' skill... the 'Two Heads and Four Arms' skill!
Senior Sister Ye Si imagination started to run wild as she said, "Shuhang... imagine that you are fighting with someone, and while you are battling, I suddenly drill out of your back with half of my body and slash them! How does that sound?"
Song Shuhang earnestly pondered about it, and then gave the thumbs up. "It sounds incredible! Later, we should look for someone and give it a try."
"In addition, I feel that I can drill out from any part of your body. For example, like this!" Senior Sister Ye Si said as she completely merged with Song Shuhang's body. Then, two slender hands came out from Song Shuhang's shoulder area.
"Four arms magical technique!" Senior Sister Ye said with a laugh.
After Senior Sister Ye Si had said this much, she and Shuhang suddenly froze.
In the next moment, a marvelous connection was established between Song Shuhang and Senior Sister Ye Si... or rather, between the arms of the duo.
Song Shuhang felt that he could now control Senior Sister Ye Si's arms as if they were his own. Therefore, he tried to order Senior Sister Ye Si's arms to make a waving motion.
In the next moment, Senior Sister Ye Si really started to wave her arms.
But right at this time, Senior Sister Ye Si frightened voice echoed in his ears. "Sob, sob, sob~ Shuhang, something bad is happening! My arms aren't listening to me anymore! Sob, sob, sob~ Have we gone too far while playing around?"
When the effects of the ❮Tome of Never-Ending Tears❯ were combined with her state of anxiety, she couldn't help but start weeping. When she started crying, Song Shuhang's eye sockets likewise became red, and bean-sized teardrops started to fall from the corners of his eyes.
"..." Song Shuhang.
"No need to be afraid... everything is fine. Ye Si, just now, I felt as if your arms had become mine, and they were thus under my control," Song Shuhang quickly comforted her.
"Does that mean that they aren't out of control? I really got a scare." Senior Sister Ye Si heaved a huge sigh in relief. "In that case, can you see if you can give the control of my arms back to me?"
"Don't be impatient. I was thinking of trying something first," Song Shuhang said.
After saying this much, he made use of Senior Sister Ye Si's hand and engraved the rune of the 'Lightning Palm' on her palm.
In the next moment, a ball of lightning that had the diameter of one meter condensed in Senior Sister Ye Si's palm.
Song Shuhang got a scare!
A ball of lightning with a one-meter diameter... can this thing even be called 'Lightning Palm' at this point?
Therefore, he quickly dispersed the energy of the 'Lightning Palm' with a thought.
"Just as I expected, the source of power of these arms is Senior Sister Ye Si's spiritual energy. In other words, just now, it was as if Senior Sister Ye Si was the one using the 'Lightning Palm'," Song Shuhang said.
This '(fake) four arms magical technique' was truly scary!
"Senior Sister Ye Si, let me try another thing now. Can you take out your legs? I would like to use the ❮Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk❯ footwork," Song Shuhang said happily.
If he could use Senior Sister Ye Si's legs to use the ❮Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk❯ or ❮Celestial Sprint❯ footwork, wouldn't that mean that he could put forth the speed of a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor?
"No... it's better not to change the lower part," Senior Sister Ye said, somewhat embarrassed.
Song Shuhang face also became red. "You have a point."
"Ahem... in that case, let's see if I can give you back the control of your arms, Senior Sister Ye Si. Hmm, but how do I do it?" Song Shuhang asked.
"I have no idea, either! Just now, I only tried to make my arms come out of your shoulders, and that was it," Senior Sister Ye Si said.
Song Shuhang thought back and said, "I remember that I managed to get control of your arms when you jokingly shouted 'four arms magical technique'."
As such, he held Senior Sister Ye Si's hands high and shouted, "Four arms magical technique, deactivate!"
After a short moment...
Nothing happened, and Senior Sister Ye Si had yet to get back the control of her arms.
"..." Song Shuhang.
"..." Ye Si.
"..." Lady Onion.
Lady Onion felt that Song Shuhang's current appearance was simply too eye-blinding. At this time, he had Hulk-like muscles, and then a pair of slender arms was coming out from his shoulders...
No matter how she looked at it, it was simply too eccentric.
If they were in ancient times, and they encountered those 'monster hunters', they would surely mistake him for a monster and kill him!
"It seemed we went too far earlier," Song Shuhang said.
"What should we do in that case? I can't even take my arms back," Senior Sister Ye said anxiously. At this time, she also had half a mind to cry, but she forcefully endured the urge.
Just as Song Shuhang and Senior Sister Ye Si were worried due to the 'four arms magical technique', in the sky, a sword light whizzed over.
Venerable White got down from the sword light while pulling a giant ginseng behind him. At this time, that ginseng that seemed to have become a spirit was continuously struggling.
From the looks of it, that thing was part of Venerable White's spoils of war.
"Shuhang, are you alright? Eh? Ahahaha, what's up with your appearance?" Venerable White landed and saw Song Shuhang's eye-blinding appearing, laughing.
