Song Shuhang nodded, and said, “Mm-hm, of course I’d want to practice that.”
One of the best distinguishing features of the Fourth Stage Realm was the ability to control flying swords and use them to kill enemies. Taking another’s head from miles away with a thought was one of the most amazing things about the Fourth Stage Realm.
Song Shuhang trained in the way of the saber, so when the time came, he would generally be using the ‘flying saber riding’ technique. Of course, whether it was riding a flying saber or a sword, it was pretty much one and the same.
The technique used to ride a flying sword could be used not only with a flying sword, but also a flying saber, or even flying staffs, flying hammers, or flying chains. As long as Shuhang learned how to ride a flying saber, it wouldn’t be a problem for him to ride a flying sword, a flying hammer, or a flying staff.
After people studied and got their driver’s license, no matter what kind of car they bought, the principle behind them was the same. As for how good they would be while driving, that was another matter.
Song Shuhang already had a technique with a unique posture for riding flying sabers––the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯.
This method of riding the flying saber would have the person at the back while the saber was in front, allowing them to shoot forward like a rocket. This was perfectly accorded to aerodynamics, fluid dynamics, and a lot of other physics theories, thus allowing the speed of the flying saber to be much faster than it normally would be.
It was a great method for escaping in life or death situations.
Song Shuhang would definitely practice the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯, but he would refrain from using it under normal circumstances. He planned on using it only when running for his life.
In addition to all this, Song Shuhang’s phone had a very useful application.
White Cloud Flying Sword Training Course App

As long as one paid a set amount of spirit stones as a fee, they could receive a one-on-one class with a Flying Sword Expert from the Scholarly Faction, allowing them to learn the flying posture of scholars.
Originally, Song Suhang had considered learning the scholarly faction’s technique for riding a flying sword…
Su Clan’s Sixteen’s eyes narrowed. “Today at noon, I’ll be imparting to you the essentials of flying saber riding. In the evening, after classes, we’ll look for a place where you can try out riding a flying saber.”
“Would there be no problem with you teaching me your technique for riding a flying saber?” Song Shuhang asked. He understood the principle of ‘techniques cannot be passed on lightly’ ever since he’d entered the world of cultivation. It was the case especially when it came to disciples of big sects and families—some of the techniques of those families and sects couldn’t be passed onto outsiders.
The only exception was if the technique belonged to oneself. Then, there would be no problem with the person imparting the technique to whomever they wanted.
“It’s fine, this technique was created by Seven, and he said that I should give this technique for riding and controlling a flying saber to you. Furthermore, since you will soon be forging your own life-bound magical treasure, if you lack any materials, you can ask me for them,” Su Clan’s Sixteen said.
Previously, due to Song Shuhang giving Su Clan’s Seven 16 pieces of ‘skeletal dragon’s withered vines’ to cure Sixteen, he owed Song Shuhang a big favor.
At the beginning, Seven said that he was planning on giving him an opportunity to cultivate in the first level of the Spirit River Secret Realm to repay the favor.
However, he didn’t expect that Song Shuhang would advance so quickly, with his realm skyrocketing. Hence, cultivating in the first level of the Spirit Secret Realm was meaningless to the current Song Shuhang.
After Seven gave it some thought, knowing that Song Shuhang was soon ascending to the Fourth Stage, he decided to choose his ‘self-created flying saber riding technique’ together with materials for Song Shuhang’s life-bound magical treasure as the remuneration for what he owed.
“Thank Senior Seven for me,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
“Mm-hm.” Su Clan’s Sixteen yawned, and then said, “I’ll see you at noon, then.”
“Alright,” Song Shuhang said. After he had finished practicing the flying saber riding technique, he’d go look for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue to get a taste of the giant crocodile leg she had prepared.
After Sixteen left, Song Shuhang practiced the ❮True Self Meditation Scripture❯ for a while, and then got up to wash his face.
Looking at himself in the mirror, Song Shuhang suddenly became troubled.
Senior White still isn’t done transcending his tribulation? Song Shuhang thought.
His left arm was still with Venerable White, and if the latter didn’t contact him, he also had no idea as to what Senior White was up to.
Such being the case, did he actually have to go to school looking like he had a broken arm?
Although he had the ‘three heads, six arms’ form, he didn’t really have three heads and six arms in the end…
If Ye Si was still by his side, as long as he stuck her arm out where Song Shuhang’s left arm usually was, with some additional cover, the problem of the broken arm would be solved. But, with Ye Si currently having gone to close up in the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion…
As for the virtuous lamia, just forget it. She’d been too jumpy recently. If Song Shuhang got her to use her left arm to replace his, only God knew what she might end up doing.
“If I can’t do that, then I can only use the shapeshifting brooch that I borrowed from Soft Feather and form a left arm with it,” Song Shuhang lightly said.
Speaking of the brooch, he still hadn’t found an opportunity to return it to Soft Feather.
It seemed like it was time for him to learn some low-level ‘illusory techniques’ so that he could have some cover among ordinary people. This way, it would be more convenient for him to move around in the future.
Just as Song Shuhang was thinking about this, a voice that seemed to belong to ‘Shi’ came from outside the room.
“Senior Brother Shuhang, are you awake yet? What do you want to eat for breakfast?” Shi said from outside his room. Her cooking wasn’t bad, so after settling in Medicine Master’s building, she ended up being the one to prepare the three daily meals for everyone.
“Do we have noodles? I want to eat something refreshing,” Song Shuhang replied.
“We do. Well, I’m going to the kitchen on the second floor now. You can just come downstairs to eat breakfast in a while,” Shi said.
When Song Shuhang went downstairs to eat breakfast, he found that everybody else was seated already.
True Monarch White Crane was eating toast with milk. Today, it was still in its female form. It could be seen that it was still weakened, not having completely recovered yet.
Little Cai had already finished eating, and was lying beside True Monarch White Crane––it was unknown whether it was due to them both being birdkind or not, but after she saw True Monarch White Crane in the morning, she felt as though they were related.
Although one was a crane, and the other was a marsh tit.
Shi raised her head and looked at Song Shuhang with surprise, saying, “Senior Brother Song, what happened to your left arm?”
“It’s nothing, I just lent it to Senior White. I didn’t lose it. When Senior White gets back, it’ll be back,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
Shi nodded her head. She then nibbled on white bread, and after thinking a bit, she said, “Senior Brother Song, I dreamt about you yesterday. There was also Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman, and two other seniors I didn’t know, and all of you held a speech in my dream. Yours and Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman’s speeches were really great; after I woke up, I still remembered them very clearly.”
“I also had such a dream,” the monster bird Little Cai said. “What’s going on? Why did Shi and I have the same dream?”
Song Shuhang held his chin. The profound sage speech was actually this great? If cultivators were sleeping, they would just end up ‘dreaming’ and seeing the frame of the Profound Sage Speech as their dream?
“The dream you had yesterday wasn’t an ordinary dream. The dream you had yesterday was the ‘Profound Sage Speech’, and should benefit the two of you quite a bit,” Song Shuhang answered.
“Mm-hm, when I listened to Senior Brother Song’s explanation of the Daoist Canon, I acquired an even deeper understanding of the Dragon Gate Realm, and I feel like I’m only a very small bit away from breaking through the bottleneck of the realm.” Shi nodded her head, and then said, “So, Senior Brother Song, could you explain it to me another time when you are free?”
“Alright, then just wait for me to get back tonight. I’ll explain it to you another time,” Song Shuhang replied.
“Thanks, Senior Brother Song.” Shi nodded her head cutely.
Song Shuhang and a few others rode Venerable White’s ten-meter-long car to school, with True Monarch White Crane, who had a suitable driver’s license, driving the car.
The early morning class really frustrating for Song Shuhang.
After showing his divinity in front of the masses, the ‘presence weakening runes’ he borrowed from Scholar Drunken Moan seemed to have lost their effectiveness. During class, Song Shuhang kept on sensing his classmates gazing at him from time to time.
Besides this, there was still the sense of numbness that he felt from time to time from his ‘left arm’.
“Shuhang, are you uncomfortable?” Gao Moumou, who was sitting beside him, asked worriedly. How could he not be worried after seeing Song Shuhang lean on the table with his body slightly trembling in pain as if he had gotten an electric shock?
Fortunately, Song Shuhang was a guy—if he was female, Gao Moumou would definitely have his R-18 imagination running wild seeing how Shuhang currently looked.
“I’m fine. I might have just caught some cold yesterday.” Song Shuhang smiled with difficulty.
Gao Moumou said, “I remember that you’ve been exercising quite frequently recently. Is your physique still this bad?”
At this moment, Tubo suddenly elbowed Gao Moumou, then pointed at True Monarch White Crane, who wasn’t too far away, and said with a smile, “I think that it shouldn’t be that Shuhang’s physique is bad. It should be that instead. Gao Moumou, do you get what I’m saying?”
Gao Moumou propped up his glasses, with the glasses refracting rays of wisdom. “Young man, you have to control yourself.”
Control your sister!
Song Shuhang was thinking of refuting, but then he received another shock from his left hand. As such, he had to bow his head and grit his teeth to endure the electric shock from the tribulation lightning.
Can I just cry?
What big plan was Senior White even thinking of? Has he still not begun carrying it out?
Just as this thought flashed through his mind, the feeling of numbness from the lightning had dissipated.
Then, he felt his left hand getting grabbed by Senior White, with Senior White beginning to write on the box using Song Shuhang’s left hand.
[Move my equipment to your Inner World, then try taking it out with your left hand. I only managed to get five nuclear bombs tonight, and it wasn’t easy to do so. I want to store them away first.]
Song Shuhang: “…”
As such, he willed his magical bracelet to be transferred to his Inner World.
Then, he controlled the magical bracelet with his consciousness, and ejected Senior White’s equipment out of it.
Finally, he controlled his left hand to try and break through the barrier of the ‘Heavenly Tribulation Realm’ to reach into his ‘Inner World’ and smuggle Venerable White’s equipment into the Heavenly Tribulation Realm.
Some time later, his ‘left hand’, which was in the Heavenly Tribulation Realm, was able to smoothly pull out all of Venerable White’s equipment, smuggling it into the Heavenly Tribulation Realm.
It was a success.
Song Shuhang’s eyes brightened… If it was possible to illegally enter the Heavenly Tribulation Realm, they could perhaps discover a lot of things about it!
Venerable White picked up his equipment.
Then, using Song Shuhang’s hand to write, he transmitted a message.
[I’m quite hungry, do you have any good food over on your side?]
