Song Shuhang raised his other foot, and his entire body was finally on the treasured saber Broken Tyrant. This time, the layer of light steadily maintained its form.
“Go!” Shuhang made a hand seal, and the treasured saber Broken Tyrant carried him as it rushed towards the skies.
This time, nothing went wrong. Song Shuhang rode the flying saber (armor) and flew around in circles at an altitude of around 10 meters.
Because it was his first time flying, he didn’t dare to go too high up. In order to avoid any untoward incidents, Song Shuhang even placed a set of ‘saber intent armor’ on himself. With the saber intent armor on his body, even if he messed up and ended up falling from the air, he wouldn’t get injured from the fall.
Su Clan’s Sixteen hugged her knees as she looked at Song Shuhang flying in the air with happiness in her eyes. After giving it some thought, she brought out her phone and took a few photos of Song Shuhang.
After flying another round, Song Shuhang stopped and landed on the ground.
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “How do you feel?”
Song Shuhang smiled as he said, “I feel great. It feels even better than flying a plane. Flying in the skies with my own power truly feels wonderful.”
…Furthermore, he was unsure whether it was just a misconception, but after riding on the flying saber, it felt like his acrophobia had gotten much better.
After all, even if he were to fall from the skies now, he had no need to be afraid, because… he could fly!
Su Clan’s Sixteen smiled, and said, “Then, do you still want to add a guardrail to your flying sword?” She recalled Song Shuhang once saying that he would add a guardrail to his flying sword in the future.
“Yes!” Song Shuhang gritted his teeth as he said, “After I master how to ride a flying saber, I’ll order a custom-made flying sword. The flying sword will be big, and there will be a guardrail around it so that it will be completely safe.”
“Heh.” Su Clan’s Sixteen eyes narrowed as she laughed. “Then, would you like to try out the saber controlling technique?”
Song Shuhang answered, “Hm, let’s wait first. I want to do this slowly. After I properly master the saber riding technique, I’ll practice the saber controlling technique.”
He’d already completely grasped the principles; as such, the only thing left for him was to practice again and again.
After saying that, Song Shuhang sat beside Su Clan’s Sixteen, and asked, “By the way, Sixteen, have you dealt with your hidden injuries yet?”
He remembered talking to Sixteen about the injury she had received during the heavenly tribulation in the past. Sixteen said that the reason she’d failed to transcend the tribulation was related to her having made a mistake while practicing her cultivation technique. Originally, the strength of the heavenly tribulation should have been something that she could have withstood. However, the heavenly tribulation aggravated the internal injury she received due to her mistake, causing her to fail and almost die.
Su Clan’s Sixteen replied, “I’ve already dealt with that hidden injury… In addition, I’ve acquired a more suitable technique. After I ascended to the Fourth Stage, I already began using the new cultivation technique. Now, all the innate true yuan in my body has basically been converted to match the properties of the new cultivation technique.”
Song Shuhang nodded his head as he said, “That’s great.”
Then, he took out a true qi restoration pill, and recovered the true qi he had used.
“Thanks,” Su Clan’s Sixteen said suddenly.
“No need to be so polite, I just did what I had to. Moreover, Senior Seven has already repaid me,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
“Seven repaying you is not the same as me repaying you. The two matters have nothing to do with each other.” The corners of Su Clan’s Sixteen’s mouth curled upwards as she raised her head slightly, and said, “I will show you my gratitude with my own means.”
Song Shuhang responded, “Alright, then I won’t be polite and will accept the double reward.”
“Hehe, but I still haven’t thought of how to repay you. I’ll give it more thought later, and tell you once I’ve got it thought through.” Su Clan’s Sixteen then took out her phone, turned it on, and said, “Just now, when you were trying out flying, I took some photos of you. Wanna see?”
“Send it to me so I can see,” Song Shuhang said. It was a photo of his first time riding a flying saber, so it was quite a significant keepsake. If she’d recorded the event, it would’ve been even better.
Sixteen asked, “Do you want me to let the seniors in the group see it too?”
Song Shuhang gave it some thought, and then said, “That’s fine, just send it to the group. I’ll save it from there.”
Sixteen smiled, and her finger moved to quickly open the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
A moment later, there was a total of 12 pictures that had been sent, starting with Song Shuhang’s saber meditation, then going from the attempts to make treasured saber float to Song Shuhang’s first time condensing the layer of light, and again to Song Shuhang riding the flying saber at a height of 10 meters.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
The seniors in the group were quite active recently. They were talking about the changes in the heavenly tribulation.
The modernization of the heavenly tribulation caused the livers of the seniors that were about to face their heavenly tribulation to hurt.
Currently, the group was talking about how to deal with the modern heavenly tribulation and how powerful the guided missiles were.
Venerable White was transcending the modern heavenly tribulation and was still in the Heavenly Tribulation Realm because he was addicted to grinding the heavenly tribulation and didn’t want to leave. As such, the fellow daoists in the group didn’t have any actual data on how powerful the guided missiles really were.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “If we could get some detailed data on the guided missiles, then maybe we could devise a way to protect ourselves.”
Dongfang Snow: “By the way, wasn’t the heavenly tribulation Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman and little friend Shuhang also faced a modern heavenly tribulation? If so, let them come out and talk about their experience.”
It wasn’t easy for her to have her ban lifted, which was why she hadn’t appeared in ages. She had to sign an agreement with True Monarch Yellow Mountain, and at least for one year, she wouldn’t mention the song of the Stupid Yellow Mountain in Nine Provinces Number One Group.
True Monarch Northern River: “Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman closed up to consolidate his new realm. He was really able to profit from the misfortune this time, actually condensing a Golden Core with eight dragon patterns. He should remain in that state for a while. Speaking of which, there aren’t many fellow daoists in the group who were able to condense a Golden Core with eight dragon patterns, right?”
True Monarch Fallout: “From what I know, the number of those who have a Golden Core with eight dragon patterns doesn’t exceed ten.”
Dongfang Snow asked, “Then, what about little friend Shuhang?”
As she sent the message, Su Clan’s Sixteen went online and uploaded the 12 photos of Song Shuhang practicing riding a flying saber.
True Monarch Northern River said, “Oh, little friend Shuhang is learning how to ride a flying saber?”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer asked, “Is Song Shuhang with Sixteen right now? Sixteen, are you teaching little friend Shuhang how to ride a flying saber?
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “Mm-hm.”
“Looking at little friend Shuhang’s layer of light… that’s not a common saber riding technique, right? Sixteen, did you impart one of your Su Clan’s saber riding techniques to him?” Frice Reckless Mad Saber, with his sharp eyes, could see with one glance that Song Shuhang’s saber riding technique was quite unique. After all, he was also an expert when it came to using the saber.
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “It’s a saber riding technique created by Seven. Seven got me to teach it to Shuhang, so there’s no problem with teaching him.”
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue: “I thought little friend Song was going to practice that ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯. Aside from the weird posture, the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ isn’t bad. @Su Clan’s Sixteen, Sixteen, get little friend Shuhang to practice the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯, it will definitely be useful in the future.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “ Alright, Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue.”
Frankly, she didn’t even have to tell Song Shuhang, as he was right beside her and could see the messages.
[Soft *Father Has Yet to Choose a Daoist Name For Me Today* Feather]: “Eh? Senior Song has already begun learning saber riding techniques? It’s a pity that I use the sword; otherwise, I could also practice saber riding techniques with him.”
After seeing Soft Feather’s nickname today, the seniors in the group all lit a candle for Venerable Spirit Butterfly. After so many days, Venerable Spirit Butterfly had finally lost his touch and couldn’t take out any more daoist names, huh?
Upon seeing this situation, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber felt that he had been very clever since he could simply change the number in his daoist name if we wished to, like changing his daoist name from Thrice Reckless Mad Saber to Frice Reckless. As long as he felt like, he could change it to Five Reckless, Six Reckless, Seven Reckless, and so on. Let alone a year, even if it were a billion years, he would be able to change his daoist name every day.
Medicine Master: “Wait, we got off track again. Weren’t we looking for little friend Song Shuhang to get him to talk about the modern heavenly tribulation? @Tyrannical Saber Song One . Shuhang, are you online?”
On Medicine Master’s phone was Riverly Purple Mist. Recently, she’s been paying close attention to things related to the modern heavenly tribulation due to Medicine Master also being quite close to transcending his tribulation.
Song Shuhang was saving his pictures when he got pinged in the group.
Tyrannical Saber Song One: “Mm-hm, the tribulation which Senior Seven Lives Talisman and I transcended was indeed a modern heavenly tribulation. We had to go through a baptism of guided missiles, tanks, and even a nuclear bomb. As for detailed data on the guided missiles… we can use Senior Seven Lives Talisman’s defensive talisman formation as a reference. When the guided missiles exploded, Senior Seven Lives Talisman’s talisman formation was obliterated in an instant.”
Medicine Master: “…”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “…”
Although Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman was only at the Fourth Stage, his defensive talisman formation could even block the attack of someone in the Fifth Stage. For it to get destroyed in an instant… Just how strong were the guided missiles?
Fortunately, Song Shuhang sent another message. “But the heavenly tribulation we transcended was a mutated one. The power of the guided missiles was at least of the Seventh Stage. So, this data can only be used as a reference.”
This was data that Song Shuhang had acquired from his secret appraisal technique.
At the same time, Song Shuhang remembered the guided missiles and nuclear bombs that Venerable White had stored.
If the seniors in Nine Provinces Number One Group wanted to understand the power of the guided missiles, he had them ready!
But these guided missiles were still under the ownership of Senior White. If they really wanted to use them, they would first have to get Senior White’s permission.
Should I ask for his permission right now?
As he thought this, he went and did it.
However, due to Shuhang and Sixteen both not having a pen and paper, and only having Miruru’s tree branch…
Song Shuhang raised the treasured saber Broken Tyrant, looked for a relatively big stone, and cut it into the shape of stone plates. Then, with the tree monster’s branch as a pen, he wrote a paragraph of text.
[Senior White, we need permission to use three guided missiles for research. Senior, please approve.]
“Done.” Song Shuhang put away the branch, sent the stone slab into his Inner World, and then took out the slab with his left hand which was in the Heavenly Tribulation Realm.
After about three breaths.
Song Shuhang sensed something with his left hand, and so sent the stone slab into his Inner World, retrieving it.
On the stone slab, Venerable White, using his thumb, cut out the word: [Approved].
