Chapter 1973: Tyrannical Song, take this shot

Despite having no money, Song Shuhang had plenty of Spirit Lakes.

His cultivation realm would be determined by his main Spirit Lake. As such, he could, theoretically, use his small Spirit Lakes for experiments.

“Didn’t you say that you just broke the fourth layer?” The black Scarlet Heaven Sword felt uncomfortable all over. It’s just been a couple of seconds, yet you’ve already broken through the fifth and sixth layers?

[The first time you’re unfamiliar with the process; the second time you get familiar with it, and the third time it becomes a habit.] Song Shuhang replied by transmitting his voice. [The more you repeat something, the better you get at it.]

“Braggart!” the black Scarlet Heaven Sword said angrily,

Song Shuhang said, [Senior, don’t pay attention to the small details. Anyway, I suddenly have an idea. Can you give me some advice on it?]

As such, Shuhang shared his idea with the black Scarlet Heaven Sword, the black-skinned Soft Feather, the virtuous lamia, Fairy Creation, Pavilion Master Chu, and Senior Turtle.

Fairy Creation tilted her head and sang, “Song~ Stupid.”

The virtuous lamia added, “There’s no hope of saving him. Just wait for him to die, and then say farewell.”

The two fairies obviously did not agree with Song Shuhang’s proposal.

“I think you can give it a try,” suggested the black Scarlet Heaven Sword. Since it was an inner demon, it did not fear throwing the world into chaos. While going through with such a plan would be in no way beneficial to Song Shuhang, it did sound interesting and it would give it some pleasure, so it decided to agree with his proposal.

The black-skinned Soft Feather thought for a moment and said weakly, “Senior Song, don’t do it. It feels like a waste, and the whole point of cultivation is to lay the foundation for the next step. Since you have seven Spirit Lakes, why not build the best foundation with them?”

The black Scarlet Heaven Sword asked solemnly, “Are you really an inner demon?”

Although it had already previously felt that there was something wrong with the black-skinned Soft Feather, that feeling was especially intense today. It now fully believed that the black-skinned Soft Feather was an outlier among inner demons.

The black-skinned Soft Feather: “…”

Pavilion Master Chu’s voice sounded from her strand of hair. “This wastefulness of yours is something that is hard to cure. Cultivation is not child’s play, don’t go around messing with it.”

The longer she stayed with Song Shuhang, the more she realized how similar he was to that other man surnamed Song.

[Senior Chu is right.] Song Shuhang nodded. He had that sudden impulse, but after being reminded by Pavilion Master Chu, he managed to stop himself.

In the meantime, Song Shuhang’s vibrating body slowly calmed down.

The black Scarlet Heaven Sword asked in confusion, “Huh? Why did you stop shaking? You didn’t really use one of your Spirit Lakes to condense a nascent soul, did you?”

Song Shuhang replied with a strange expression, [Stuck…]

The black Scarlet Heaven Sword was stunned. “Huh?”

Song Shuhang said, [My Life Wheels got stuck in a crack when they attacked the seventh heavenly layer. ]

The seventh heavenly layer was special, and it required the addition of the Big Dipper and the life-bound magical treasure to be breached.

Song Shuhang’s life-bound magical treasure was outstanding, and he had consumed quite a bit of the Big Dipper while eating the Braised Heavenly Tribulation.

Yet, despite his Life Wheels being boosted with the powers of his life-bound magical treasure and the Big Dipper, they got stuck.

Pavilion Master Chu said, “I’ve never heard of Life Wheels getting stuck while breaking through a heavenly layer.”

Could it be that I did not eat enough Braised Heavenly Tribulation and failed to absorb enough of the Big Dipper’s power? Song Shuhang thought to himself.

He was absolutely certain that the problem did not stem from the Life Wheels or the life-bound magical treasure.

Therefore, it was very likely that the problem was the quantity of the Big Dipper not being enough.

Do I have to look for more Third Stage tribulation lightning, braise it, and increase the power of the Big Dipper in my body?

At this moment, Pavilion Master Chu’s seven-meter-long hair stretched out and poked Song Shuhang’s body.

After a while, she said, “Not only is the power from the Big Dipper you currently have lacking, but your body is also at its limit.”

Song Shuhang’s body had been possessed by the Scholarly Sage’s obsession, and he was exhausted from the grand battle against the fat ball’s clone.

Although the Sage’s residual energy nourished his body afterward, that did not mean that Song Shuhang’s body was fine.

In fact, what allowed him to continue standing and prevented his body from exploding was the Sage’s blood.

Pavilion Master Chu continued, “Stop, you need to rest.”

She suspected that if Fairy Creation retrieved the Sage’s blood, Song Shuhang would blow up in a couple of minutes!

Fairy Creation sang, “Song~ Dumb~ Dumb, dumb, dumb~”

What a pity. Song Shuhang let out a chuckle.

However, this is life. Nothing is perfect. That’s just how things are.

Song Shuhang gently straightened his head, and then stepped on black lotuses to walk over to where the fat ball’s clone had been standing.

Although the fat ball’s clone had already been destroyed by the Pay-To-Win Strike, Song Shuhang wondered if there was anything left behind, perhaps some kind of indestructible item.

Song Shuhang’s eyes and divine sense swept the scene, but he found nothing. The bone of eternity, which was what he wanted to retrieve from the fat ball, was nowhere to be found.

“Could it be that this clone was not made through the bone of eternity?” Song Shuhang frowned.

This is bad news.

Has the level of its technology already reached this level?

If that’s the case, it means that the real bone of eternity would always be with the fat ball’s main body…

And with the fat ball’s main body always staying in the Netherworld Realm, even if Senior White Two used his main body to launch an attack, there was no guarantee that they could take the bone back.

Moreover, this implied that the fat ball could send clones to the main world continuously by relying on the replicas of the bone of eternity.

Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Chu, Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, did you find anything?”

“No,” replied Scarlet Heaven Sword.

Pavilion Master Chu’s strand of hair also shook its “head”.

Song Shuhang said, “Then, let’s get out of the combat space. Once we’re out, I’ll look for Senior White Two’s main body in the world of the black lotus and check on him.”

When it came to matters related to the fat ball, he had to discuss them with Senior White Two first and ask for his expertise.

Shuhang looked towards Fairy Creation.

Fairy Creation nodded. She then reached out and brought out the Sage’s eye.

The Sage’s eyes lit up slightly, and Song Shuhang’s figure shifted out of the combat space.

Before he could even regain his balance…

“Tyrannical Song, take this shot!” roared Daddy Turtle. Then, an Eighth Stage-level Roaring Dragon Cannon shot toward Song Shuhang.

Song Shuhang: “!!!”

It was so sudden that he did not even have the time to dodge.

Sister Turtle and Daddy Turtle, we were comrades in arms a couple of seconds ago. Why do you suddenly have to do something so mean to me?

The shot squarely struck Song Shuhang.

In the next moment, something flew off of his body.

“Shit!” that thing roared unwillingly.

Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be a piece of mercury-like metal that had attached itself to Song Shuhang at some point. Even Pavilion Master Chu had not noticed its existence.

Nevertheless, it was eventually struck by Daddy Turtle’s Roaring Dragon Cannon…
