In the video, several hundred people formed a long line and chased after Senior Brother Gao Sheng. The scene was full of hustle and bustle, just as if there was a country fair going on.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Didn’t this mean that if the people in the surroundings recognized him, they would chase him for a few blocks just like they did with Senior Copper Trigram?
The thought alone was enough to make him feel uneasy.
After seeing Song Shuhang’s strange expression, Ji Shuangxue said, “Schoolmate Shuhang, did you discover who the person in the video is?”
Song Shuhang clenched his teeth, and said, “Yes, it’s a friend of mine!”
Ji Shuangxue said, “And he looks so similar to you?”
“He used make-up. He has some uncanny skills when it comes to applying make-up, and he only needs a few tweaks to look the same as me.” Song Shuhang was worried about another matter as well. After Immortal Master Copper Trigram assumed his appearance, and before people started chasing after him… did he perform some divination?
Senior Copper Trigram was a shady fortune teller, and who knew what kind of divination he had performed this time! In the future, he might have to take the rap for his actions!
Hopefully, he wouldn’t end up like Fairy Lychee, who had people coming after her to take revenge!
In the afternoon, at 3 PM.
Joseph’s family and Song Shuhang’s group finally arrived at Jiangnan University Town.
The registration session in Jiangnan University Town would take place from the first to the third of September. Therefore, there were still some days left. Joseph brought his family and reluctantly parted ways with Song Shuhang’s group. His family wanted to use these few days to visit their relatives in the Jiangnan area.
On the other hand, Song Shuhang brought the three disobedient children and the young monster hunter to the house Senior Medicine Master had bought some time ago.
Around this place was the defensive formation that Venerable White and Medicine Master had arranged. As such, they didn’t have to worry about petty thieves barging inside. In addition, each room had ‘dust-removing’ runes or formations, and they didn’t have to worry about the place being dirty, either. After all, several months had passed since someone lived there.
In some cases, the means of the world of cultivators were more convenient than science and technology.
In the living room on the second floor.
Song Shuhang prepared tea for the three disobedient children and the young monster hunter.
Then, he said to the three children, “Guoguo, Shi, Zhu… Senior Brother Three Realms came to the Jiangnan area yesterday, and he was supposed to bring you back immediately. However, we ended up being late, and something came up on Senior Brother Three Realms’ side as well. Therefore, he will be back in two or three days and will take you away only at that time.”
Song Shuhang’s voice had hardly faded that the eyes of the three disobedient children immediately lit up, shining as if they were jewels.
“Of course, I’m going to keep a close watch on you three during these few days,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
A bitter expression immediately appeared on the faces of the three disobedient children.
Song Shuhang faintly smiled and then gazed at the young monster hunter. “Director, did you have business here since you came to the Jiangnan area?”
The young monster hunter leaned against the sofa, and replied, “Actually, it’s like this… we monster hunters sensed that there was a large amount of evil energy gathering in the Jiangnan area as of late, and it was very likely that a monster or demon might make its appearance. As such, when I heard that you were studying at Jiangnan University and wanted to head there, I decided to tag along and accompany you to ensure your safety.”
“Thank you,” Song Shuhang said.
“You are welcome.” The young monster hunter raised his brows, and then said, “Therefore, I’ll be strolling through the Jiangnan area during the next few days. If that senior of yours comes over to bring us to the filming location, give me a call. I’ll immediately head over here.”
“Sure, no problem,” Song Shuhang said with a nod.
“In that case, I’ll set out after resting for a while. I also have to contact my other companions that have already reached the Jiangnan area,” the young monster hunter said.
The three disobedient children immediately shot an expectant gaze at the young monster hunter.
After pondering for a moment, Guoguo gritted his teeth, and said, “Senior Brother Shuhang… actually, the three of us came to the Jiangnan area because there was something we wanted to do.”
“Let’s hear it,” Song Shuhang said as he laughed.
The slightly younger girl, Loli Zhu, patted her chest, and said, “We also came here to vanquish demons and monsters!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
“We are very serious about this matter. We went through the trouble to run away from the Faraway Wandering Temple because we wanted to come to the Jiangnan area to vanquish demons and monsters. Therefore, I request Senior Brother Shuhang to give us a helping hand!” Zhu jumped down from the sofa and knelt in front of Song Shuhang, cutely beseeching him.
“Given your strength, let alone vanquishing demons or monster… it would be already a miracle if you don’t get eaten.” Song Shuhang didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
The three disobedient children only had the strength of the First Stage Realm, and they would be in grave danger if they encountered a demon or evil spirit of the Second Stage. Then, if they met an enemy of the Third Stage, they would be like meat-filled buns thrown into the mouth of a dog.
“I have secret techniques at my disposal!” Guoguo said. After all, he was a disciple of the Faraway Wandering Temple, and he knew several magical techniques that had the power to vanquish demons and monsters.
“Same here. In addition, we have talismans as well,” Shi and Zhu said.
“Even if you have secret techniques and talismans at your disposal, you can only cope with a few small demons of the First Stage with your strength,” Song Shuhang replied.
Guoguo said, “That’s enough.”
Shi said, “It’s fine as long as we can vanquish a low-level demon.”
Zhu said, “Everything is fine as long as we can vanquish at least one demon. Otherwise, we won’t give up, and we’ll run away again even if Senior Brother Three Realms brings us back!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
“Therefore, isn’t it better if Senior Brother Shuhang brings us to vanquish some demons?” Guoguo suggested.
“I’m sorry, but I refuse. You can wait for Senior Brother Three Realms to come over and then go to vanquish demons with him,” Song Shuhang said as he rubbed Loli Zhu’s head.
Guoguo said, “But Senior Brother Three Realms won’t bring us to vanquish demons and monster… he’ll directly bring us to the Faraway Wandering Temple.”
“I promised Senior Brother Three Realms that I would keep an eye on you three. Therefore, I really can’t bring you to vanquish demons and monsters. Maybe we can go the next time,” Song Shuhang said.
The three disobedient children looked at each other, their faces full of anxiety.
After recalling that there were still two or three days left, they decided to put this matter off until later. Humans would create their own opportunities, and they would definitely find one in the next few days.
Around 3:30 PM, the young monster hunter bid farewell to Song Shuhang and the others, heading to the Jiangnan area in order to look for his companions.
Director had already promised Venerable White that he would participate in that movie that had Senior Thrice Reckless as the main character, ❮My Reckless and Unrestrained Life❯. As such, Song Shuhang wasn’t afraid that he would suddenly run away.
After looking at the time, Song Shuhang looked at the three disobedient children, and said, “Right. What do you want to eat this evening?”
“Everything is fine as long as it’s a vegetarian dish. Right, Senior Brother Shuhang, I heard there is a particularly famous shop in the Jiangnan area that prepares vegetarian chicken and vegetarian meat. Although the dish is vegetarian, the flavor is very close to that of real meat. Is this real?” the small monk said while drooling.
“Yes, I know that shop. It’s located in the Luo Xin street area,” Song Shuhang said with a nod. Speaking of which, the Luo Xin street area was the place where he’d first met Soft Feather. One could say that it was one of the turning points that made him enter into the world of cultivators.
“In that case, can Senior Brother Shuhang bring us there to have a taste?” the small monk said happily.
“If you want to break your religious commandment, I can indeed bring you there to have a taste,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
“?” The small monk was puzzled.
“Why do you think that vegetarian chicken tastes like real chicken? It tastes like that because they added chicken soup to the dish. In addition, don’t be too surprised if you find a chicken bone in your mouth while eating that ‘vegetarian chicken’,” Song Shuhang said.
The small monk:
“Actually, regardless of the shop, it’s very difficult to find a 100% vegetarian dish nowadays. Perhaps we can buy the ingredients ourselves and then cook. Didn’t you say that Shi could cook?” Song Shuhang said.
If it really didn’t work, he still had the Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill and the ‘living spring’, as well as some fasting pills. Therefore, they didn’t have to worry about starving.
“Sure,” Loli Shi said with a nod.
Around 3:40 PM.
Song Shuhang brought the three disobedient children to the food stalls in the adjacent Luo Xin street area to buy some ingredients. Senior Sister Ye Si stayed back home—she was following a TV series as of late.
Then, just as Song Shuhang and the three children were passing through a small alley, something unexpected happened.
Several fierce-looking men blocked Song Shuhang and the three children.
Actually, Song Shuhang had noticed them long ago. After all, they were just a bunch of ordinary people.
Are these the local ruffians of this neighborhood? Song Shuhang thought to himself. Was the security around Jiangnan University Town so bad already? Did the police forget to properly administer this area? In the end, Jiangnan’s university was still a prestigious university, so was it really fine for the security to be this bad?
“Damn kid, I’ve finally found you!” Just as he was in deep thought, a tall and thin figure came out of that group of people gathered in front of him, angrily glaring at Song Shuhang.
“Found me…? Who are you?” Song Shuhang asked out of curiosity.
The tall and this man clenched his teeth, and said, “Hehehe… kid, you forgot already? On the other hand, I remember you very clearly. Three months ago, this uncle found with much difficulty a job and prepared to stage a small accident with a car for the first time to blackmail the driver… but little did I expect that a bastard like you would suddenly pop up and steal the 2000 RMB in my purse, forcing this uncle to suffer from cold and hunger for two weeks!”
This story sounded somewhat familiar… As such, Song Shuhang tried to recall the event.
After a short moment, he finally remembered.
“Oh, it’s you!” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
Back then, he and Su Clan’s Sixteen didn’t know each other too well. That day, Su Clan’s Sixteen had just come out of the hospital and had decided to head to Jiangnan University Town together with Song Shuhang.
Along the way, the duo encountered a middle-aged driver that had fallen into a trap and was being blackmailed.
Song Shuhang acted on a whim and pretended to comfort the blackmailer. At the same time, he stretched out his hand and stole the wallet of the opposite party, running away.
Back then, the blackmailer chased after Song Shuhang for several blocks, but was unable to catch up to him in the end.
Song Shuhang still remembered that he had just started practicing the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ back then, and he had been looking for someone to try out the technique. Therefore, he really hoped that the blackmailer would come after him with his buddies to give him a lesson, allowing him to practice his ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ further.
But unfortunately for him, the blackmailer didn’t come after him.
Song Shuhang thought that the opposite party had long forgotten him… and later, his ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ reached the master level, and it was going to be pointless to use it against ordinary people.
But little did he expect that the belated retaliation of the opposite party would come three months later.
Song Shuhang said, “I thought that you would immediately look for me. I didn’t expect that you would come after me only now.”
“Bastard, when I started looking for you, you were already on vacation. How was I supposed to find you?!” the blackmailer said angrily.
“Right, you have a point,” Song Shuhang said with a nod.
The blackmailer clenched his teeth, and said, “Enough chit-chat. Kid, which hand did you use to steal my wallet back then? Today, I’m going to break that hand of yours!”
