Chapter 2026 Why are you so proud?

Bring the dragon?

Will the trial ground at Garre Holy Mountain allow me to bring in a dragon? Song Shuhang pinched his chin and thought.

From the name of the (Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique), it looked like it was a technique born from the combined power of holy apes and dragons.

However, ever since he began practicing this body-tempering technique, Shuhang had only ever seen apes, and he had never caught the glimpse of a dragon.

Judging from Senior Skylark’s hint, could it be that the General Principles Inheritance Chapter of the cultivation technique has something to do with dragons?

Would the (Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique) only be complete after combining it with draconic energy?

While he was in thought, he sent another message to Senior Thrice Reckless. “Besides the ‘dragon’, do I also need to bring in a holy

ape?”

Thrice Reckless Mad Saber replied, “I didn’t expect you to be like this, Shuhang. Are you saying that I’m an ape? Little friend Shuhang, you’ve changed. I won’t talk to you anymore. The price of interworld Internet is very high. I’m going offline.”

Song Shuhang was dumbfounded.

What? That’s not what I meant! I simply thought that since you told me I take a dragon with me, maybe I would also need a holy ape!

Unfortunately, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s icon on his friend list had already dimmed, and it said that he was offline… He had really disconnected

Song Shuhang was not given any opportunity to explain himself.

He looked up at the sky and let out a long sigh.

“What did Thrice Reckless tell you?” Senior White asked while driving.

Song Shuhang replied, “Senior Thrice Reckless conveyed me a message from Senior Skylark. He said that when I enter Garre Holy Mountain for the trial, it would be best for me to take a ‘dragon’ with me.”

Senior White asked, “A dragon? Oh, the (Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique)… So you need to take a dragon with you, eh?”

“That should be the case,” said Song Shuhang. He then turned to look at Sixteen and Sister White Dragon.

Speaking of dragons…

Sixteen had awakened the dragon bloodline in her body, and Sister White Dragon was the Ancestral Golden Dragon of the Ancient Heavenly City, a supreme-level existence among dragons.

If the inheritance chapter of the (Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique) required the help of a dragon, then it should be enough for him to take them with him. And so, he decided that when he met up with Fairy Blue Phoenix, he would ask her for another slot so that he could bring Sixteen in with him.

Song Shuhang said, “Garre Holy Mountain’s trial grounds might block the Inner World. So, to be safe, I’ll ask Fairy Blue Phoenix for another slot.”

The trial grounds were ranked as a forbidden area.

For such places, locking the surrounding space was the bare minimum.

Therefore, it was not wise to rely on the Inner World to smuggle people in.

Having taken his decision, Song Shuhang contacted Fairy Blue Phoenix through the metal disc.

As the call connected, Song Shuhang went straight to the topic and asked, “Fairy Blue Phoenix, I wanted to ask you if you had any extra slots for Garre Holy Mountain.”

Fairy Blue Phoenix asked, “Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, is there another person you want to bring into the holy mountain?” Song Shuhang nodded and replied, “Yes.”

Fairy Blue Phoenix smiled wryly. “I’m sorry, Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, but there’s not enough time. The holy mountain will be opening tomorrow, so I have no way to get another slot for you in such a short time.”

If it was still some time before the opening, she might be able to get a few more slots. However, it was really difficult for her to do so with the holy mountain opening so soon.

Senior White gestured to Song Shuhang.

Song Shuhang nodded and replied, “Alright. Thanks anyway, Fairy Blue Phoenix. I’ll just figure something out by myself.”

After ending the call with Fairy Blue Phoenix, Song Shuhang looked at Senior White.

Senior White smiled and said, “You can just use my small-black-room-breaking disposable flying sword. You can have Sixteen stay in your Inner World and then have her fly to my coordinates when the time comes. After we enter the inheritance area, she should be able to regroup with us. No matter how strong the restrictions inside Garre Holy Mountain are, there is no way they surpass those in the Wielder’s small black room.”

“Great idea!” Song Shuhang gave a thumbs up.

Senior White’s real body is so reliable.

Senior White the almighty!

Senior White smiled slightly. Then, he turned his head and continued driving. “However, it would be better if we could get another slot. After all, if the trial were to require some kind of authentication token, then even if Sixteen gets inside, it would be useless with her not being able to access the trial.”

It was like hacking into a computer just to get stuck because you didn’t have a verified game account to play the game.

Song Shuhang said, “It would be great if another bug with a slot appeared at this time so that we could get an extra slot for Garre Holy Mountain.”

The black Scarlet Heaven Sword smiled and said, “Are you talking about yourself?”

After all, wasn’t Song Shuhang also a “bug” with a slot to enter the Garre Holy Mountain?

Lady Onion said, “Shuhang has evolved from a bug to a mouse.”

“Oh, you’re right.” The black Scarlet Heaven Sword nodded.

While they were talking, Senior White braked. The giant flying sword, which had been flying at constant speed, stopped all of a sudden.

Song Shuhang stabilized himself—having learned from their previous crash, he braced himself for impact.

Sixteen asked, “What happened?”

The black-skinned Soft Feather emerged from Song Shuhang’s shadow and asked, “Are we going to crash into a mountain again?”

Senior White stopped the flying sword and looked into the distance. “There are two groups of people fighting ahead. If we continued on our current trajectory, we would have crashed into them.”

Song Shuhang asked, “Then, are we going to avoid them?”

Senior White said, “I’ll change our path, and just in case, I will strengthen the flying sword.”

Strengthen the flying sword? Senior White can’t be planning on running those people over, right?

Song Shuhang became a little worried.

At this time, ahead of Senior White’s giant flying sword.

There were a total of thirteen cultivators that were in battle. These thirteen were all beast cultivators, and each of them had distinctive racial features and tattoos.

After the two groups of people fought for a while, they put some distance between them.

There were seven people on the left and six people on the right.

They gnashed their teeth as they glared at those from the opposing group.

“ROAR!” The seven people on the left roared in unison.

Above their heads, Holy Ape appeared one after the other. Moreover, there were a lot of them. Each of them had at least 10 Holy Ape Projections—this meant that, among the seven people, the weakest was at the Fifth Stage Realm.

The beast cultivator that led this group was wearing a straw hat, and there were 41 Holy Apes above his head—this meant that his strength had already reached the Seventh Stage Venerable Realm. The beast cultivator with the straw hat sneered and said, “Daoist Turntable, my strength has already reached the level of 41 Holy Apes. Why do you still insist on fighting me?”

On the right side, one of the six beast cultivators of the tiger race who was carrying a turntable on his back sneered back and said, “Why are you so proud of having 41 Holy Apes?”

His body shook, and 42 Holy Ape Projections appeared behind him!
