This magical treasure resembled a ‘cannon’ quite a lot!
Was Senior White planning to blow up something? But why would he suddenly decide to blow up something? Was it possible that he got tired of playing exploration and decided to directly raze to the ground this checkpoint of the forbidden area?
After sensing Song Shuhang’s doubts, Senior White turned his head around, and explained, “You must be curious as to what this thing is, right? The full name of this thing is very long, and from what I remember, it was something like ‘Supernatural might capable of overturning the world…’ plus a few more adjectives that I’ve forgotten, and it ended with ‘see gods, slay gods mother-child cannon’. I’m not sure which bored guy gave it this stupidly long name, but I just call it God Slaying Cannon. Anyway, its destructive power is really high, and I really like this thing.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
It was really a cannon! Moreover, a mother-child type of cannon.
As they were speaking, Venerable White finished assembling other six small cannons, which formed a straight line and connected with the mother cannon.
Little Cai asked, “Senior White, why did you suddenly take out this cannon?”
She had asked something that Song Shuhang wanted to know as well.
“Because there are some guys ahead that are plotting against me.” The corner of Senior White’s mouth rose as he evilly smiled.
“Ah?” Song Shuhang had a confused expression on his face.
“I’m not mistaken. Someone is plotting against me and laid a trap ahead in the hopes of luring me there. I’m very familiar with this feeling, and I’m not mistaken. Therefore, I decided to take the initiative and make the first move.” Senior White patted the God Slaying Mother-Child Cannon.
After the God Slaying Cannon was put together, it finally activated. The runes of the formations engraved on the mother and child cannons shone and formed several patterns. It felt as though the energy had formed a circuit.
Senior White said to Song Shuhang, “As long as your artillery fire is strong enough, you can obliterate all kinds of enemies and crafty schemes. What do they call it… one cannon to settle gratitude and grudges? Anyway, under the fire of a powerful cannon, all crafty plots and cunning schemes will be reduced to ashes.”
Song Shuhang quietly nodded his head. What Senior White said made sense!
“Alright, you guys retreat a little. The recoil of this God Slaying Cannon is somewhat big. Right, you should also seal your hearing or arrange a soundproof formation. The sound the cannon issues while firing can wreck one’s eardrums,” Senior White said.
Song Shuhang and Little Cai retreated, and Ye Si arranged a small soundproof formation.
“Boom, boom, boom~”
Song Shuhang was still retreating when Senior White opened fire.
Dazzling light condensed at the end of those ‘God Slaying Mother-Child Cannons’ positioned in a straight line. Soon after, the God Slaying Cannons fired beams of light in rapid succession. The earth was scorched, and the various constructions crumbled to pieces.
According to Senior White, it was a magical treasure with a ‘pretty high destructive power’, and its strength was indeed astonishing! Song Shuhang could faintly see a small mushroom cloud rising from the places the beams of light had hit.
This God Slaying Cannon wasn’t firing radioactive attacks, right…?
[The destructive power of this magical treasure already far exceeds that of the Seventh Stage Venerable Realm…] Ye Si said in Song Shuhang’s mind.
[I feel that its power is even greater than that of the nameless magical technique Venerable White used the last time. The one that materialized a ring and fired disposable flying swords,] Song Shuhang replied.
[As expected, there is something wrong with Senior White today.] Ye Si also felt that there was something fishy.
[Hmm, still… it’s not really a big deal for us. Right, we can confirm this matter.] Song Shuhang continued, [Ye Si, do you have any magical technique that can allow you to create a clone? It doesn’t need to have any fighting capacity. It’s fine as long as it has the ability to scout.]
[I don’t have a technique to create clones,] Ye Si said. [However, I remember that you have a flying sword with you, right? Can you lend it to me? I can use a ‘sword controlling technique’ and attach a wisp of my consciousness to the flying sword. That way, I’ll be able to scout with it.]
[We can give it a try.] After saying this much, Song Shuhang took out a black flying sword from his magical bracelet.
It was part of the spoils of war he’d obtained from Branch Leader Jing Mo of the Limitless Demon Sect. Although its flying speed wasn’t too high, it was very suitable to carry out assassinations.
Song Shuhang turned over his palm and sent the black flying sword to his Inner World.
[Ye Si, you should also enter my Inner World and see if that tunnel that connects my Inner World to the ‘world of the black lotus’ is still there. If the tunnel is still there, throw this black flying sword inside and check if that big cocoon is still in the world of the black lotus,] Song Shuhang said.
At the same time, he shared with Ye Si his memory of when he went to the world of the black lotus in the form of consciousness and met Senior White Two, who was sleeping inside a big cocoon.
Ye Si said in his mind, [I see. Are you suspecting that the Venerable White before our eyes might be Senior White Two?]
[It’s just my guess, I’m not sure yet. We can’t exclude that Venerable White might have just gotten too excited today, causing him to be in such high spirits,] Song Shuhang said. No matter what Venerable White was doing, Song Shuhang would be hardly surprised.
Even if Venerable White decided to become the Wielder of the Will tomorrow, Song Shuhang wouldn’t feel surprised.
[I understand. I’ll give it a try,] Ye Si said.
Soon after, Ye Si entered his Inner World, starting to look for the tunnel that connected the Inner World to the world of the black lotus.
At this time, Senior White had already put away the God Slaying Mother-Child Cannon, and arrived next to Song Shuhang.
“Hey! Shuhang, wake up! Are you spacing out again?” Senior White shook Song Shuhang.
“Ahahaha, I was just mulling over something,” Song Shuhang replied.
“Mulling over something? Were you shocked by the might of the God Slaying Mother-Child Cannon?” Senior White said.
“A little,” Song Shuhang replied honestly.
“It seems you also like cannons. When we are free next time, I’ll bring along a set of ‘God Slaying Cannons’ and give it to you, allowing you to bring into full play the power of the God Slaying Cannon as well,” Senior White said with a smile. Then, he also added, “Let’s go! The traps, enemies, and dangers ahead were completely wiped out with that attack earlier. We can now head to the entrance of the forbidden area and open that door.”
Song Shuhang nodded.
Song Shuhang and Senior White followed a charred black path, and arrived in front of the door to the forbidden area. This charred black path was the one that Venerable White’s God Slaying Cannon had carved out.
The door to the forbidden area had the shape of a huge golden disc that was as big as a small mountain. The golden disc was made of layers upon layers of golden rings. There were almost 10,000 in total. Different numerical symbols, patterns, or letters were engraved on each ring.
“Can you solve the puzzle of this disc?” Senior White asked.
If they were unable to solve it, he could try to use the cannon to forcefully burst the door of the forbidden area open.
“Sure, leave it to me,” Song Shuhang said.
The method to solve the puzzle of this golden disc had been engraved in his mind long ago!
