Who knew when he would get a signal next? Immortal Master Copper Trigram was in deep despair at the moment.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
All the fellow daoists were waiting for Immortal Master Copper Trigram to continue with his explosive news, but even after waiting for a while, they didn’t receive any message.
” @Immortal Master Copper Trigram, are you still there?” True Monarch Northern River asked.
Unfortunately, Immortal Master Copper Trigram was already offline, and couldn’t read Northern River’s Loose Cultivator’s question.
“From the looks of it, that shady fortune teller lost signal,” Su Clan’s Seven guessed.
“I’m not sure why, but when I think about the fact that that shady fortune teller was seized by a powerful expert and brought to a place with no Internet connection, not only do I not feel sad, but I even find it funny. Am I too heartless?” Fairy Lychee said.
Wandering Monk Profound Principle: “”
True Monarch Northern River: “Fairy Lychee, don’t worry… You aren’t the only one. I feel the same.”
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da: “[New picture of a cute puppy].”
“[New Picture of the head of a dog being furiously rubbed].”
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da: “Wonderful! This new dog head rubbing combo is especially cool. In addition, you don’t need to blame yourself, Fairy Lychee. The Nine Provinces Number One Group is a friendly and united group, but there is nothing to be sad about when it comes to Immortal Master Copper Trigram’s matter. Perhaps he will find real love this time, and everything will turn for the better. Let’s give Immortal Master Copper Trigram our well-wishes!”
“Raise our glasses, and offer Copper Trigram our well-wishes,” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said.
“Raise your glasses. Lovers will finally become brother and sister— wait, I meant, husband and wife! Let’s offer our well-wishes to Immortal Master Copper Trigram,” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber said. Now that Su Clan’s Sixteen had dragged away the fake Thrice Reckless, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was in a good mood.
“Lovers will finally become brother and sister… This sentence made my imagination run wild,” said Island Master Tian Tiankong. “I remember that the powerful expert that kidnapped Immortal Master Copper Trigram after the battle on the summit of the forbidden city had 36 different forms, and could even change its gender. One can say that it was True Monarch White Crane’s upgraded version. As for Immortal Master Copper Trigram, his form and gender are also ever-changing. Is it possible that Immortal Master Copper Trigram and that mysterious silver-haired expert are really older brother and younger sister?”
Vice-Island Master Tian Tianwei: “Elder Brother, you are really an idiot. Copper Trigram is only at the Sixth Stage Realm, while that silver-haired woman with the pig form was at least a Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender. How can they be older brother and younger sister? In my opinion… they are definitely older sister and younger brother!”
All the conversations in the Nine Provinces Number One Group were like this. The topic of conversation would change very quickly and take strange turns.
They had gone from discussing the identity of the fake Thrice Reckless to discussing ‘lovers becoming brother and sister’. It was unknown how the fellow daoists of the group had managed to connect these two different topics.
“Right, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s Immortal Feast will start very soon… Is there any of you that has an extra invitation to the Immortal Feast? I was too busy as of late, and I didn’t have the time to collect the various ingredients needed to get an invitation. Now, the Immortal Feast is soon approaching, and my heart is about to crumble,” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator asked.
True Monarch Yellow Mountain: “Fellow Daoist Northern River, you asked about it some time ago as well, right? Nevertheless, the number of people invited to the Immortal Feast was drastically reduced this time. Therefore, no one has an extra invitation.”
Su Clan’s Seven: “Well… Northern River, I’d have had an extra invitation if you had asked me two days ago. But now, the day before yesterday, I ended up giving it to a junior of the Su Clan that was begging for it.”
This extra invitation Su Clan’s Seven was talking about was originally his own, but since he was suddenly forced to close up, it became something superfluous.
True Monarch Northern River: “ I really want to meet the beautiful Immortal Fairy Bie Xue face to face, heavens~”
“I have a blank invitation card. Senior Northern River, I can give it to you if you want it,” Song Shuhang said after getting online.
After Su Clan’s Sixteen dragged him away, he went to the remote corner of a corridor, and seized the opportunity to remove the effects of the ‘shapeshifting brooch’. Then, he activated Scholar Drunken XXX’s talisman, became somewhat transparent, and quietly headed to his classroom.
“Oh, little friend Shuhang has returned. What about Little Sixteen? ” True Monarch Northern River said with a smile.
“Sixteen has already gone to the Fine Arts Department. She’s the teacher of that department,” Song Shuhang replied.
This reply was equivalent to telling everyone that he was the one behind the matter related to the fake Thrice Reckless.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “”
Song Shuhang: “Senior Thrice Reckless, I’m sorry. Just now, I unknowingly assumed your appearance in the heat of the moment.”
If one had committed a mistake, they’d better admit it in the hope of receiving a lighter punishment.
“It’s alright, I can understand. People can indeed perform a few actions they normally wouldn’t in the heat of the moment; it happened to me as well, several times. I have high expectations of you, little friend Shuhang… but you have to remember the rule: ‘reckless but no more than thrice’. You always have to remember not to commit the same mistake three times, always! ” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber also attached a smiling emoji.
“…” Song Shuhang.
At this time, he was suspecting that a disease named ‘Thrice Reckless Disease’ truly existed in this world.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Little friend Shuhang, in that case, I’ll make a trip to Jiangnan University Town in the near future. You absolutely have to reserve that invitation to the Immortal Feast for me.”
“Sure, Senior Northern River,” Song Shuhang replied.
“In addition, according to the custom of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, I will prepare something of equal value to give you in exchange. Is there anything you need?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator asked.
“Hmm… I’ll probably need a few materials to arrange tribulation-transcending formations in a few days, but if I have already transcended the tribulation by then, I’ll need some materials to forge a life-bound magical treasure. Aside from these… right, I need magical clothes! A daoist or scholarly robe can do,” Song Shuhang said.
The chest area of that beautiful daoist robe he had exchanged from the Western monk had been blown up, and it was unknown if it could be repaired. In addition, with his realm increasing, that daoist robe wasn’t that suited for him anymore.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “In regards to materials to arrange tribulation-transcending formations, I just transcended the tribulation myself and consumed them all. The same goes for the materials needed to forge a life-bound magical treasure. My 12 life-bound sword orbs basically consumed all my stockpile. As such, I think I can only exchange a daoist robe with you. Wait a moment, I’ll go look in my treasure house and see if there is any daoist robe suited for you.”
“No problem, Senior Northern River. ” Song Shuhang attached a smiling emoji.
It would be wonderful if he could immediately get his hands on a high-quality daoist robe. Having a good daoist robe could greatly increase his chances of transcending the heavenly tribulation.
“Hmm, right. Little friend Shuhang, aside from daoist and scholarly robes, do you accept other types of robes as well?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator suddenly asked.
“It’s not a kasaya, right? If it’s a kasaya, allow me to refuse!” Song Shuhang said after clenching his teeth. He had managed, with great difficulty, to exchange the kasaya True Monarch Yellow Mountain had given him the last time with the Western monk. If he got another kasaya now, his liver would truly be in pain.
“It’s not a kasaya,” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said. “Actually, I do have some daoist robes of the Third and Fourth Stage with me. However, these robes aren’t that high in quality, and their value can’t be compared to that of an invitation to the Immortal Feast. However, I have this special magical robe in my hands, with strong modern aura. A cultivator of the Third Stage can wear it and use it directly until the initial phase of the Fifth Stage Realm. It has ultra-high defensive power, and the materials used to manufacture it are very good. As such, if you don’t need it anymore in the future, you can tear it down and use the materials to forge your life-bound magical treasure.”
“It’s this good?” Song Shuhang said. “Senior Northern River, can you send a picture so that I can take a look?”
Just what kind of appearance would an item with ‘strong modern aura’ have?
A cool windbreaker? A western suit? Or perhaps a flashy hoodie?
“Sure, just wait a moment. I’ll send you the picture,” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said.
Around 20 breaths later, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator got online and sent the picture.
Then, Song Shuhang saw… Iron Man.
There was no mistaking. That was definitely a man of iron.
It didn’t have the appearance of a robot, but that of a human, and it looked incredibly lifelike. It even had holes in eye sockets, nostrils, and mouth.
Was this that robe that had ‘strong modern aura’ according to Senior Northern River?
Truly spicy to the eye!
Song Shuhang was unable to feel any ‘modern’ aura from this man of iron. In addition, was this thing even a magical robe?
It was clearly a statue of iron!
“How does it look?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator asked.
Song Shuhang: “Hmm, what can I say… very lifelike?”
Su Clan’s Seven: “Exquisite.”
Fairy Lychee: “The face is 3D.”
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “Tall and slender build, not bad.”
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da: “Pardon me for speaking this… but is that thing even a magical robe?”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “That’s Iron Man’s statue!”
Fairy Dongfang Six: “Actually, I don’t sense any ‘modern aura’ from that iron statue. Fellow Daoist Northern River, did you send the right picture?”
“Hehe, there is no mistaking. This is the right picture. In the past, I spent a lot of time to get my hands on this ‘Black Iron Godly Armor’. Don’t judge it for its ordinary appearance. I can assure you that this is a good thing. Wait a moment. I’ll make a video and allow you to learn something new,” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said, full of confidence.
Another 20 breaths later…
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator uploaded a video.
In the video, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator arrived in front of that ‘Black Iron Godly Armor’ and made a hand seal, activating it.
In the next moment, the armor flew up on its own, and its chest opened. Then, its four limbs and head separated from the rest of the body.
“Clang, clang, clang~”
Then, the head, torso, hands, and legs of the ‘Black Iron Godly Armor’ attached themselves to Northern River’s Loose Cultivator’s body.
The armor had the ability to automatically adapt to the build of its master.
After wrapping up Northern River’s Loose Cultivator, it automatically regulated its size to fit on his body.
“What now? Are you convinced? This armor doesn’t even look like a cultivation-related product. It looks more like something out of a science fiction movie,” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator said smugly.
One couldn’t help but say that the ‘Black Iron Godly Armor’ really gave off a technological feeling when worn.
However, it also made one look rather ugly…
In the meantime, next to Jiangnan University Town’s western gate.
A young woman that was dragging a large suitcase along stopped.
Then, she bent and took out her phone, looking at the screen. “This is the place, Jiangnan University Town.”
At the same time, a remote-control device with a push button above accidentally fell from her pocket…
