What the hell does she mean by ‘I messed up’?!
Don’t tell me that the owner of that streak of evil energy was able to track us down by following the clues!
Just as this thought flashed through the mind of the banknote, it discovered that that streak of foul and wicked energy had condensed, assuming the shape of a ball, and was floating above the head of the blue-haired female cultivator, as well as its own.
The pressure of that supreme presence was getting heavier and heavier. This time, the banknote wasn’t even able to retreat, and it could only fold on itself as if it had no backbone; it was a sign that its legs had gone soft.
It couldn’t be helped, who told it to be born as a banknote?
Did you really expect a banknote to have a backbone? That was asking too much from a banknote… After all, a banknote didn’t even have bones! Or did someone stuff bones inside your banknotes when they were printed?!
The spherical ball of evil energy hovered midair. The supreme presence it was giving off made people feel like bowing their heads in fear. If such an aura appeared on the body of a human, that would definitely be some good main character material. Let alone this banknote, whose legs had already gone soft, 70-80% of the Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor in the world would feel like kneeling down after feeling such pressure.
“I’m dead, I’m dead. I’m really going to die today. The pitiful me ended up throwing its life away for only five spirit stones of the Seventh Stage.” After thinking up to this point, the banknote was filled with regret.
“Don’t worry, we won’t die,” the blue-haired female cultivator said with a smile. It felt as if she didn’t feel the slightest pressure while facing that supreme presence. However, it was unknown if she was just clenching her teeth and enduring or if she didn’t really feel any pressure.
“You have to remember that this place isn’t the Netherworld Realm!” the blue-haired female cultivator stated once more.
They were in the main world, and not in the Netherworld Realm. As long as the opposite party was confined in the Netherworld Realm, they couldn’t cross worlds and come over to kill them.
“We aren’t going to die?” the banknote said happily. “Is it possible that the opposite party didn’t discover us?”
The blue-haired female cultivator laughed, and said, “No… I’m afraid that the opposite party already discovered the two of us. If the Netherworld Realm has something like a wanted list, we are likely already on that list.”
The banknote gritted its teeth, and said, “F*ck, that’s really unlucky.”
“It’s not a big deal. As long as you don’t actively seek death and make a trip to the Netherworld Realm, nothing bad will happen. Even if the Netherworld Realm issues a global arrest warrant for you, they can’t do anything as long as you stay in the main world and be a little careful,” the blue-haired female cultivator said with a smile.
After finishing her sentence, she said with deep regret, “Still, after messing up… I won’t be able to get any other useful information out of it.”
Her voice had hardly faded when the spherical ball of evil energy blew up, creating a large explosion!
The blue-haired female cultivator had already prepared for this moment, and around a thousand defensive formations immediately appeared in front of her, warding off the explosion.
But even so, the whole fortress was in shambles after this explosion.
After the supreme presence vanished, the banknote immediately rolled up from the ground, and asked, “Anyway, what useful information did you extrapolate from that energy?”
“Hmm… For now, I only know that the opposite party is carrying out an experiment. The experiment consists in fusing the ‘demons of the Netherworld’ with either ‘human beings’ or ‘animals’,” the blue-haired female cultivator replied.
“Fusing the demons of the Netherworld with humans? Is this even possible?” the banknote asked, somewhat alarmed.
Even if one used the energy of the Netherworld to modify a human being, they would only be able to contaminate the said human and make them fall, finally turning them into a demon of the Netherworld. But something like a fusion… was it even possible?
However, even more importantly, what were they trying to accomplish by fusing the demons of the Netherworld and human beings? Did they want to fuse the two races into one and make them live together in peace?
Okay, that was a huge joke.
“I have no idea. Perhaps the person pulling the strings from behind the scenes acted on a whim and decided to fuse the humans and animals of the main world with something else?” the blue-haired female cultivator said with a smile. “Anyway, it definitely isn’t a good deed. I’ll think of a way to notify every big sect and tell them to be a little careful.”
“I won’t take part in this matter… and I won’t accompany you any further. I’m leaving first,” the banknote said. It was just a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor, and wouldn’t it be seeking death if it got involved in this matter related to a creature of the Immortal rank?
After saying this much, the banknote got on its flying sword and whizzed to a distant place.
“That guy is really impatient. However, it’s good that it ran away…” The blue-haired female cultivator gave a charming smile, and then took out her mobile phone, opening a group chat.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark: ” @True Monarch Yellow Mountain, Fellow Daoist Yellow Mountain, have you started researching those two guys that transformed into demons?”
True Monarch Yellow Mountain: “Uh… not yet. I’m still trying to catch Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist, it won’t take me long. Fellow Daoist Skylark, is something the matter? Are you also interested in this matter?”
Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark: “Yep… I had this sudden idea recently and used divination to lock down the position of a mouse that had likewise transformed into a demon. Afterward, I requested another fellow daoist to bring me back the demonic mouse so that I could research it for good. The result was… that I messed up.”
True Monarch Yellow Mountain: “Ah? You messed up? What does that mean? Is everything alright?”
“A big problem arose. I was contaminated with the energy of the Netherworld Realm. In addition, the energy I was contaminated with wasn’t ordinary… it was the energy of a creature of the Immortal rank. It’s quickly invading and devouring my body as we chat. According to my calculations, I’ll be fully contaminated within another three or four days and transform into a demon of the Netherworld Realm,” Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark replied.
After writing this much, she attached a picture of her right arm. It could be seen that evil black energy was entwining her arm, and the originally snow-white arm had become lilac-color now.
I’m that little white crane at the edge of the Earth’s End: “Senior Skylark, your condition seems super bad! You have to quickly find a way to expel the energy of the Netherworld Realm from your body!”
“Actually, I feel that this lilac-color skin looks very attractive. If my whole body were to become lilac, it would definitely look pretty, wouldn’t it?” Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark said indifferently.
I’m that little white crane at the edge of the Earth’s End: “Senior, you can’t stop your treatment. If you get thoroughly contaminated with the foul energy of the Netherworld Realm, you’ll be done for! Quickly help yourself!”
“Hmm… Actually, I have no way of helping myself. The strength of the opposite party is several great realms above mine, and I have no way to resist it. That’s why I said that I messed up,” Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark said indifferently.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “Senior Skylark, in that case, quickly cut off your arm! Even if we cultivators lose an arm, we have countless ways to restore it! Therefore, you should quickly sever your arm before the evil energy spreads to your whole body!”
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber had finally managed to come out of that ‘Secret Realm of Slowness’. At this time, he was on a disposable flying sword, on his way to the Spirit Butterfly Island. Since he had nothing to do and was somewhat bored, he decided to go online and flood the Nine Provinces Number One Group a little. But right at that time, he suddenly saw the news.
“It’s already too late for that. When I discovered that I had messed up, the evil energy of the Netherworld Realm had already invaded my right arm, as well as the majority of the right side of my body. Therefore, I can’t really cut off the whole right part of my body, right? The best I can do right now is operate all my strength in order to slow down the speed at which the evil energy is invading my body,” Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark added. “The reason I sent only the picture of my right arm is that it couldn’t be helped. Although I’m an open-minded person, I’m still a female cultivator, and I couldn’t take off my clothes and send the pictures in the group, right? However, if Thrice Reckless wants to see, I can send you the pictures in private!”
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “…”
True Monarch Yellow Mountain: “Fellow Daoist Skylark, do you need help?”
“Hmm, yes. I need a lot of help,” Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark said. ” @Cave Lord Snow Wolf, Little Snow Swolf, I need you to give me a hand. After the evil energy of the Netherworld Realm thoroughly invades my body, you’ll have to seal me in a layer of ice. At that time, I’ll be able to meticulously research my body. The main problem is that the ice-type sealing formations I had prepared beforehand were all smashed during the explosion… and even the extra ones I had prepared just in case were contaminated with the evil energy of the Netherworld Realm. I don’t really dare to use the polluted formations to seal myself in a layer of ice. I’m afraid something unexpected might happen.”
It seems there is still something you don’t dare to do! Thrice Reckless Mad Saber ridiculed in his heart.
“Fellow Daoist Skylark, you didn’t intentionally let yourself be contaminated with the evil energy of the Netherworld Realm so that you could study the effects it has on one’s body, right…?” Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, who hadn’t appeared for a while, asked at this time.
“Ahahahaha.” Fellow Daoist Skylark laughed. “Actually, it was really an accident, and I messed up for real. According to my calculations, only a portion of my body would be contaminated with the evil energy of the Netherworld Realm, which would allow me to experience firsthand and analyze how this special type of pollution and transformation worked. But little did I expect that the pollution the evil energy was going to cause would be so severe. However, it doesn’t matter, and nothing will happen to me. As you know, my constitution is rather special… and even if I get thoroughly contaminated with the evil energy of the Netherworld Realm, it won’t be a problem for me. Therefore, you guys don’t need to worry too much.”
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue: “I think I now understand why you like Thrice Reckless so much.”
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “…”
Xuan Nu Sect’s Skylark: “”
Then, Skylark also sent the result of her analysis from before. “I think that this transformation of other organisms into demons is actually part of an experiment. The experiment should consist in fusing humans or animals with the demons of the Netherworld.”
In the meantime.
The sky gradually dimmed, and Joseph exited the highway, starting to look for a place where they could pass the night.
Song Shuhang raised his head and looked at the sky. What bad luck… if Ye Si had used her flying magical treasure, they would have reached the Jiangnan area long ago!
At the lodging they found, there were only rooms that had either space for two or three people.
In the end, Song Shuhang and Joseph ended up in the same room.
“…” Song Shuhang.
He wondered if Joseph had done it on purpose.
Well, Joseph had obviously done it on purpose. He had been waiting for this evening all along.
As soon as night fell, Joseph’s eyes shone, and he said happily, “Teacher, do you want to inspect how much your disciple improved as of late?”
Joseph felt that he had made a lot of progress recently. Both his constitution and endurance had greatly improved, almost making him feel as if he had returned to his younger days. Therefore, he was really eager to show off in front of his teacher Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang didn’t even have the time to reply that Joseph started performing the ❮Times are Calling❯ exercise in the middle of the room.
“…” Song Shuhang.
It was very late, and while other people were either sleeping or doing shameful things with their girlfriends…
Shuhang was watching a foreign uncle performing radio calisthenics in front of him, the accelerated version on top of that.
However, it was something he had brought upon himself.
