In the end, Song Shuhang still brought True Monarch White Crane to one of Venerable White’s rooms.
Indeed, ‘one of his rooms’.
While staying at Medicine Master’s place, Senior White had exchanged rooms several times. For example, when they first got here, Senior White wanted to dismantle Medicine Master’s TV set—which left them with no TV to watch that evening—and he had switched both room and floor to do so.
It could be said that aside from Song Shuhang’s room, every other room in the building belonged to Venerable White. If he wanted to use a particular room, he would simply use it.
After Song Shuhang brought it to that room, True Monarch White Crane was satisfied.
“At first, I thought you wouldn’t agree to bring me to Senior White’s room. But, I didn’t expect that you would be this obedient. You are good guy,” True Monarch White Crane said.
“…” Song Shuhang. Did you just casually give me the good guy card 1 ?
He didn’t want the good guy card for such a silly reason!
“Not good, I’m can’t hold it anymore. I’ll have treat my wound first. In the meantime, you can do as you please,” True Monarch White Crane said.
Afterward, it continually shrank its body—assuming its ‘female’ form—and casually found a place in the room, sitting cross-legged there.
True Monarch White Crane’s forms didn’t only differ in temperament—their abilities were also slightly different.
Generally speaking, the male form was more advantageous when it came to fighting.
As for the female form, it had a slightly higher affinity with the ‘light’ element and was more agile. This form was somewhat better when it came to treating wounds.
Actually, True Monarch White Crane’s injury was a little heavier than what it told Shuhang. While treating the wound, it didn’t even set up a formation and directly started to heal itself after taking a medicinal pill.
After a short moment, just as True Monarch White Crane started to breathe rhythmically, black mist visible to the naked eye started to gush out of its nostrils.
The black mist was filled with the evil energy of the Netherworld, and it had corrosive properties.
However, when True Monarch White Crane exhaled this black mist, the spiritual energy in the room rushed over and mixed with this black mist, diluting it and purifying it.
This spiritual energy that rushed over from all sides faintly had Venerable White’s aura.
“I see…” Song Shuhang finally understood.
Venerable White had cultivated in this room in the past, and when Seventh Stage Venerables trained, the spiritual energy in the surrounding area would gather at incredible speed. As such, each time Venerable White concluded his training, some of his spiritual energy would stay in the room. If left alone, this spiritual energy would gradually disappear.
The reason True Monarch White Crane had decided to treat its injury in this room was to make use of this spiritual energy. The spiritual energy in the room could reduce the effects that the evil energy it was exhaling would have on the external world.
However, it was impossible to neutralize the evil energy of the Netherworld that True Monarch White Crane was exhaling with just the lingering spiritual energy that Venerable White had left here after his practice.
Thereupon, Song Shuhang stayed behind, acting as a protector for True Monarch White Crane.
The black mist True Monarch White Crane was exhaling kept increasing in volume, and it was already impossible to purify it with the lingering spiritual energy that Venerable White had left behind after his practice.
Some of the mist spiraled through the room and then headed toward Song Shuhang having sensed his aura.
Just like water would naturally flow downward, the evil energy of the Netherworld would also naturally target human cultivators.
When the mist got into a range of two meters from Song Shuhang, dazzling golden light resurfaced on his body, purifying the weak evil energy of the Netherworld.
The golden light of virtue was the natural enemy of the evil energy of the Netherworld. As if that wasn’t enough, the light of virtue on Song Shuhang’s body had already ‘materialized’.
However, there was no need for the virtuous lamia to come out to deal with this weak mist. The mere shine of the golden light of virtue was enough to purify it.
Still, Song Shuhang felt that it was a waste to use the golden light of virtue to purify this evil energy of the Netherworld. No matter how weak, this was still energy of the Netherworld in the end!
As such, Song Shuhang tried to mobilize the power of his Inner World, attempting to materialize that lotus flower and absorb the evil energy of the Netherworld.
But just as Song Shuhang was about to materialize his lotus flower, True Monarch White Crane suddenly opened its eyes.
“Shiet,” True Monarch White Crane said.
Song Shuhang asked, “What happened?”
“Shuhang, find a way to knock me out. Afterward, go in the Nine Provinces Number One Group and ask which senior is close to the Jiangnan area, and request their help… I’ve underestimated the explosion of that magical treasure. The evil energy of the Netherworld that entered my body is very strange. This time around, I’ve truly met with unexpected disaster!” True Monarch White Crane said after clenching its teeth. At the same time, it made a hand seal, and huge white spiritual energy emerged from its snow-white wings, transforming into chains that firmly bound its body.
True Monarch White Crane’s wings were similar to the hump of a camel—they could store some spiritual energy inside to use in case of emergency.
However, the situation was too dire, and not even this spiritual energy reserved for emergencies was of much help.
Those white chains made of spiritual energy swarmed into True Monarch White Crane’s body, firmly binding it in place.
Soon after, True Monarch White Crane’s eyes became very red, filled with killing intent.
“Little friend Shuhang, find a way to knock me out, and take care of your safety!” After saying this much, True Monarch White Crane also added, “If you fail to knock me out, you’ll suffer quite a bit!”
“Ah?” Song Shuhang opened his eyes wide.
“If you are unable to knock me out and the binding spell loses its effectiveness, I’ll go berserk—which is enough to scare even me. Think about it… at that time, you’ll have to face a crazed Sixth Stage True Monarch. You are going to die!” True Monarch White Crane said.
“In that case, quickly knock yourself out!” Song Shuhang said.
“If I could do it myself… would I have… still asked… for your help…?” True Monarch White Crane’s voice started to become shaky, and the dark aura around its face got heavier and heavier.
“In that case, how can I knock you out? Where do I have to hit you?” Song Shuhang said anxiously.
Heavens, if a Sixth Stage True Monarch went mad, there was a chance it would destroy the whole building!
“This is something you’ll have to find out by yourself… I’ll tell you in advance… don’t hit my face.” After saying this much, True Monarch White Crane’s eyes whitened, and it completely fell into a berserk state.
“Uaaah!” True Monarch White Crane’s issued a fearsome cry, very similar to the cry of a wild beast that had chanced upon some prey or enemy.
“Damn you!” Song Shuhang said. Then, he patted his chest, and said, “Lotus flower, appear!”
The lotus flower was projected out of the nucleus, and countless roots filled the air.
“Nucleus, can you enter into True Monarch White Crane’s body and extract the evil energy of the Netherworld inside?” Song Shuhang asked.
During summer vacation, he had met an evil beast made from the energy of the Netherworld, and he had used the roots of the lotus flower to extract all the energy in its body.
Later, when he met ordinary people that had been contaminated with the evil energy of the Netherworld, he had also used the roots to prick their bodies and extract the evil energy of the Netherworld inside.
However, the problem was that True Monarch White Crane was a great monster of the Sixth Stage. One couldn’t compare it to that fairly stupid beast made of evil energy or those ordinary people contaminated with the evil energy of the Netherworld…
Therefore, Song Shuhang wasn’t sure if the roots of his lotus flower would be effective against it.
After receiving Song Shuhang’s order, the roots of the lotus flower dashed forward, pricking into the frenzied True Monarch White Crane. Since the roots entered into action, it meant that they were able to absorb the evil energy inside True Monarch White Crane’s body!
Several thousand roots swept toward True Monarch White Crane, who was in its petite and lovely female form. As if that wasn’t enough, White Crane was bound at this time, and the resulting scene was truly spicy to the eye.
“Ding, ding, ding!”
Just as the roots tried to prick into True Monarch White Crane’s body, they got blocked by chain-shaped white spiritual energy. It was precisely the binding spell that True Monarch White Crane had used to bind its body.
Not only could this magical technique firmly bind True Monarch White Crane in place, but it could also block the roots of the lotus flower.
If he wanted to absorb the evil energy, Song Shuhang first had to take care of this binding spell. But if he got rid of the binding spell, a frenzied white crane of the Sixth Stage would instantly assault him.
Song Shuhang’s liver was in great pain at this moment.
But right at this time, True Monarch White Crane suddenly jumped up from the ground and crashed into Song Shuhang. Although that binding spell had bound it in place, it could still jump. But due to the limitations of the binding spell, its speed was very low.
Song Shuhang sighed and moved aside, dodging the incoming True Monarch White Crane.
From the looks of it, the only solution now was to knock it out.
But… how could he knock it out? Even if it had gone berserk and was bound, it was still a monster of the Sixth Stage with an incredibly powerful body. How could a small cultivator of the Third Stage like Song Shuhang knock it out?
On the other hand, had True Monarch White Crane come here on purpose after getting injured, taking advantage of the fact that it was about to go berserk to beat him up…?
Anyway, the first thing to do was to ask the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group for help.
Song Shuhang took out his phone and got into the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
“Emergency here! Is there any senior still online? True Monarch White Crane has gone berserk at my place, how can I knock it out?” Song Shuhang sent this message.
As he was typing, True Monarch White Crane jumped up again and continued to crash into him.
This time, the virtuous lamia inside Song Shuhang’s body automatically came out.
She took out her Face Slapping Flip-flop and locked onto True Monarch White Crane’s face, ready to slap it.
“Wait, can you not hit its face?” Song Shuhang said.
The virtuous lamia stopped, and the Face Slapping Flip-flop drew a circle in midair, striking True Monarch White Crane’s body and sending it flying.
True Monarch White Crane rolled on the ground a little and then jumped up again.
Although it had gone berserk, it could still rely on its instinct.
After discovering that its close-range attacks weren’t working on Song Shuhang, it instinctively decided to use magical techniques.
But in its current condition, it could mobilize a very short amount of spiritual energy due to the binding spell. This low amount of spiritual energy was only enough to use one magical technique.
“Aaah!” The berserk True Monarch White Crane howled, flapping its wings and displaying a magical technique.
This magical technique was very quick, and it instantly reached Song Shuhang’s body.
Song Shuhang didn’t have the time to dodge. After all, it was the magical technique of a Sixth Stage True Monarch. If even a cultivator of the Third Stage could dodge it, True Monarch White Crane would be truly incompetent.
However, more importantly, the virtuous lamia also didn’t block this magical technique.
The magical technique reached Song Shuhang’s body.
Then, the pain he was expecting didn’t come. On the contrary, Song Shuhang felt comfortable and refreshed…
