Chapter 218: Were gonna crash, dammit, Seniors distracted!
Translator: Stardu5t Editor: Kurisu
The Turtle Breathing Technique was a technique easy to comprehend, and anyone can easily guess what it did by simply hearing its nameit was a technique that allowed a cultivator to decrease the number of times they had to breathe for a period of time.
In the world of cultivators, there were various techniques related to lowering breath and heart rates. Even Turtle Breathing Technique was divided into two different types, short-term Turtle Breathing Technique and long-term Turtle Breathing Technique.
Soft Feathers senior brother, Liu Jianyi the lazybones, practiced the long-term Turtle Breathing Technique as hard as he could because he was too lazy to breathe. Now, he had reached the stage where he only had to breathe two to three times a month.
As for the short-term Turtle Breathing Technique, it uses magic to replace breathing within a short period of time. The stronger the power of the cultivator, the higher the efficacy of the technique.
The flexibility of this technique was rather highonce a low-level cultivator had the technique, he could enter underwater or underground places that lacked oxygen to carry out activities or go on an adventure.
Alright, these aint the problem. The problem iswhy did Venerable White suddenly choose this timing to teach him the short-term Turtle Breathing Technique? Song Shuhang panicked in his heart.
Senior Whites face was still as peaceful as before as he calmly asked, "How bout it, do you wanna learn it or not?"
"Senior." Song Shuhangs face looked like he was in distress as he asked, "You can tell me directly, did something happen?
Venerable White turned his head around and smiled, "Yeah, if there are no mishaps, after we continue flying high up towards the sky, we will pass through the atmosphere and fly into space!"
Pass through the atmosphere and fly into space
His worst fears were coming true.
"Senior White, cant we stop the flying sword? Based on your capability, stopping the flying sword isnt a problem, right?" Song Shuhang asked carefully.
In reality, if it was just the two of them, even if they flew up to space, he would just accept it and resign himself to his fate. Besides, he was already wearing a spacesuit anywayat most he can take it as participating in a Senior White brings you on a space adventure for a day activity.
But this time, they have an Instructor Li Jr. with them and there was only one spacesuit. Wait f*ck, is this why Senior White wants me to learn the Turtle Breathing Technique?
Is it because he wants me to give Instructor Li Jr. my spacesuit and get me to use the Turtle Breathing Technique? Song Shuhangs eyes started to water.
"You guessed right, you can give the spacesuit to Instructor Li Jr." The master of mindreading Venerable White still had a smile on just like before and gave him a thumbs up. He explained, "How should I put it, earlier when we were racing on the flying sword with that fella, we flew too fast and theres nothing we can do about the speed now, we cant stop. Of course, based on my capabilities, stopping the flying sword isnt a problem but the fuselage of the helicopter is unable to withstand so much pressure, it will explodewhich is no problem for me, but its hard to say the same for you and Instructor Li Jr."
The corners of Song Shuhangs mouth twitched, Its hard to say the same for you and Instructor Li Jr.? Could it be... death?
"I understand, Senior." Song Shuhang said, "Please teach me the Turtle Breathing Technique!"
At the same time, he removed the spacesuit on his body and gave it to the pitiful Li Jr. to wear. He felt rather apologetic towards the instructor for dragging him into this unexpected calamity.
Hopefully, when things have ended and after Senior White performs a brainwashing operation on him, it would allow him to forget this traumatic experience and continue living his life happily.
"No worries, with me around, going to space wouldnt pose any danger! I am a Seventh Stage Spiritual Venerable." Senior White reassured him.
Truth to be told Senior White lied. Yeah, he said a white lie.
Based on his capabilities, even if the speed of helicopter-style disposable flying sword was ten times faster than the speed it was going at at the moment, if he wanted to stop the flying sword, he could do it with just a thought.
Furthermore, it would definitely stop in a steady and stable manner.
Its just that, Venerable White thought of the spacesuit on Song Shuhangs body, and his conversation with Song Shuhang prior to getting onto the helicopter.
Song Shuhang has always wanted to go to space, right?
Additionally, because of his admiration for astronauts, he couldnt help but don a spacesuit when he sat in the helicopter, wanting to experience what its like to be an astronaut.
Even though he didnt know what exactly Song Shuhang was worried about Senior White still decided for himself that since Song Shuhang had taken care of him well on several occasions, now that he had an opportunity, shouldnt he fulfill his wish?
Even though he couldnt go too far into space, going one round around the earth and looking for a bigger meteor or other things to land on before taking a picture to commemorate the trip was all within his means.
Senior White was a person who takes good care of his juniors.
Sometimes, he can be very meticulous!
Perhaps an immediate encounter with space incoming was a huge motivation for Song Shuhang, for he managed to quickly grasp the Turtle Breathing Technique.
The Turtle Breathing Technique was only a little more complicated than Lightning Palm. It also required qi and blood energy, and then to engrave a rune on each palm.
One had to use ones mental energy to activate the power of the runes, and after that, putting both hands together to combine the seals of the technique would fully activate it, causing one to enter the state of turtle breathing.
Also, each rune only consists of a few simple strokes.
How should he put it he felt that all the techniques that Venerable White taught him were very similar in how they were being used. They either required engravement of runes on the palms and the usage of mental energy to activate them, or required the user to lightly call out the name of the technique, or required combining the seals of the technique on the palms in order to perform them.
All these techniques... dont tell me they are from the one-person sect White that have been magically altered by Venerable White?
Under Senior Whites personal guidance, Song Shuhang, who had activated the Turtle Breathing Technique, allowed himself to enter the state of turtle breathing.
He put both hands together to combine the turtle seals, activating the technique!
In the next moment, he felt his heart rate slowing down and his breathing ceased!
Breathing was originally a human instinct, human beings do not need to deliberately control itthey breathe instinctively. But as of now, he had stopped breathing just like that. He personally did not feel any difference or discomfort, it was as though not breathing was innate.
Such a feeling was very strange.
...There was a nagging feeling telling him that this was not Turtle Breathing Technique but a death-bringing technique.
"Not bad, based on your current level, the Turtle Breathing Technique can last for around two hours. When the techniques efficacy is about to run out, I will remind you to renew it. In that way, your problem pertaining to breathing in space would be solved." Senior White laughed.
However, just solving only the problem of breathing was insufficient to survive in space.
Without a spacesuit, the vacuum, extreme temperatures, radiation from the sun, as well as micrometeoroids in the space could endanger the human body.
For example, in vacuum, the nitrogen in the blood within the human body will become gas, causing its volume to increase. Without wearing a high pressure airtight spacesuit, the human body would be in jeopardy as a result of the huge disparity between the difference in pressure within the body and the one in the external environment.
To Venerable White, these were no problems. To a cultivator, as long as he was a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor who had condensed the golden core, his corporeal body was strong enough to withstand the harsh conditions in space. If the problem of breathing was solved, a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor was able to live and work happily in peace in outer space.
However, Song Shuhang was a mere First Stage cultivator, his body was only a little stronger than an ordinary human beings, which was insufficient for him to withstand all kinds of dangers posed to his body in space.
"Yeah, without the spacesuit, I need to give you another form of protection." Venerable White said and took out a notebook from his pocket.
It was that kind of small palm-sized notebook. Thereafter, Venerable White started flipping through the notebook and started drawing with his finger.
"Senior White, what are you doing?" Song Shuhang asked carefully.
Venerable White replied, "Drawing a talisman to protect you and keep your life when youre drifting in space. What a pity, if you had prepared two spacesuits, youd then be able to have a more genuine experience of an astronauts day in space."
"Hahahaha." Song Shuhang forced a laugh In actual fact, I never really thought of wanting to experience the life of an astronaut!
Besides, you can use a notebook to draw talismans?
Ever since Senior White refined a flying sword from the tree branch, he once again renewed Song Shuhangs knowledge of talismans.
"Ok, done!" Venerable White tore a page from his notebook and folded it into a tiny piece before passing it to Song Shuhang, "Put it into your pocket, it will protect you just like a spacesuit once we pass through the earths atmospheric layer."
Even though he wanted to laugh at this whole talisman drawn on notebooks page thing, since this item concerned his safety, Song Shuhang accepted it carefully and put this talisman into his pocket.
As they were speaking, suddenly, the disposable flying sword helicopter edition seemed to encounter a boundary of some kind and Song Shuhangs vision went black.
Thereafter, a bunch of bright stars appeared in front of his eyes.
We had already passed through the atmospheric layer, and entered space?
I havent even experienced the entire process properly.
"It really is extremely beautiful!" Song Shuhang widened his eyes and felt like he didnt know where to look atevery corner was just beautiful. It was the kind of scene where people cant help but etch it in their memory forever.
He was still within the helicopters fuselage, with a layer of protection set up by Venerable White on the outside. Since he could still talk, he decided to take the chance to express his feelingshe wouldnt be able to make any sounds in a while when they arrived in space and had to leave the fuselage of the helicopter.
"Very beautiful, right? I have always liked flying out to take a look since a long time ago actually, there was a period of time where I wanted to look for a planet in space to go into seclusion. However, there was a lot of problems I couldnt find solutions to, so I gave up." Senior White smiled.
After laughing Venerable White suddenly went into a daze.
The majestic and vast starry sky of space triggered one of his old memories, causing him to get lost in his reminiscence.
Senior White was distracted.
However, senior was distracted, but the helicopter-style flying sword had not stoppedit continued flying so fast it seemed like teleportation.
At this time a sharp-eyed Song Shuhang suddenly realized that, in front of them, there was an enormous object moving slowly, approaching them.
"Eh, Senior White, there seems to be something in front! Ah, Senior White, hurry turn around, were gonna crash!" Song Shuhang shouted loudly.
However, Venerable White did not respond to his shouts even after a long time.
Song Shuhang looked at Venerable White Dammit, Senior White is distracted!
