Chapter 412: Scattering sword qi
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
"What is Fellow Daoist White trying to do?" Venerable Spirit Butterfly asked in puzzlement.
Soft Feather and Liu Jianyi curiously looked at Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang rubbed his temples. After pondering for a moment, he thought of a possibility Venerable White engraved the disposable Song Shuhang 1S edition on the scroll of the 'sword technique' earlier, right? Is it possible that something went wrong with the 1S edition and instead of bringing that mister over here, it was Venerable White that got 'pewed~' away?
However, the disposable Song Shuhang 1S edition is something that Venerable White himself created! Therefore, he should be able to easily stop it if he wanted to, right? Did he decide against stopping it as not to waste this opportunity?
"Senior Song, what game was Venerable White playing?" Soft Feather asked out of curiosity.
"I'm not sure either," Song Shuhang said. "Perhaps he went to catch a certain person... it should be that guy we met in the secret room of the Chu Family."
"Oh? Fellow Daoist White is also interested in that guy? Such being the case, we better speed things up. I'm also very interested in him and his teleportation technique." Venerable Spirit Butterfly heartily laughed.
Perhaps it was time to lit a candle for that mister. He could die without regrets now that he had managed to draw the attention of two Venerables at the same time.
"Senior Spirit Butterfly, why are you here at the Illusory Sword School?" Song Shuhang asked.
Earlier, he thought that Venerable Spirit Butterfly and Soft Feather had gone to meet the other seniors. He didn't expect that he would find them here at the Illusory Sword School.
When the nearby Liu Jianyi heard these words, he forced a smile.
Then, he quickly explained the situation to Song Shuhang.
Earlier, when the lessons finished and he left schoolcough, when the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform finished, Liu Jianyi quietly followed the two Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors that helped the Illusory Sword School to beat them up.
After beating them up and taking some pictures as a souvenir, he decided to return to the Grievance Settling Platform.
However, something unexpected happened on the way back.
Thirty sea urchin warriors of the Fourth Stage screamed like madmen and charged toward him, blocking his way. The reason was probably the Mark of the Sea Urchin Slayer on Jianyi's body...
The fact that the sea urchin warriors wanted to kill him wasn't such a big deal. After all, they were sea urchin warriors of the Fourth Stage, and Liu Jianyi could kill them after using his full strength.
Aside from the racial ability to hold extreme grudges, sea urchin warriors had developed a powerful 'taunting ability' due to the Sea Urchin Warriors' 20 Years of Mandatory Education Manual.
After finding Liu Jianyi, they started to recite their usual sentences, 'Arrogant fellow, you unexpectedly dared to kill another sea urchin warrior!', 'If you obediently let us cut your head off, we'll forgive your family members!', 'Not only you, even your family members and the people related to you, as well as the members of your sect, will be killed!'...
Liu Jianyi secretly heaved a sigh and prepared to reveal his strength of the Fifth Stage Realm to kill these guys.
But just as he was about to make his move, a red-colored spirit butterfly suddenly appeared next to the thirty sea urchin warriors.
The spirit butterfly lightly bumped into the bodies of the sea urchin warriors, and in the next moment, they all changed into fireworks, exploding and lighting up the sky with beautiful lights.
Immediately after, Venerable Spirit Butterfly appeared out of nowhere while maintaining a straight expression on his face. Next to him was also an overjoyed Soft Feather.
Although he considered Liu Jianyi a sluggard, he was still someone that Venerable Spirit Butterfly trained since he was a kid. Even though the sloth cancer of this disciple of his made his liver ache, he still considered him as a member of his family.
Therefore, how could Venerable Spirit Butterfly not be angry when the sea urchin warriors said things such as: 'we'll kill your family', 'destroy your sect', 'kill all the people related to you', and so on?
Today, it was already the second time that someone said they would kill his family hence, Venerable Spirit Butterfly made his move and immediately killed the sea urchin warriors.
Then, he brought Soft Feather and Liu Jianyi along as he followed the traces of the sea urchin warriors, stopping in the airspace of the Illusory Sword School.
After hearing this much, Song Shuhang wiped the sweat from his forehead he felt that it was already a miracle that a race such as the sea urchin warriors managed to survive until now.
Was it possible that they were a race with an incredible reproductive capacity? After laying the eggs, they would mature in one year, and each nest had like a hundred eggs with a survival rate of over 90%?
At this time, Soft Feather happily said, "Senior Song, Senior Song! When Venerable White shot up in the sky earlier, was that the disposable meteor sword?"
Miss Soft Feather's interests were somewhat different than other people's.
"It wasn't the disposable meteor sword. That one should be even more exciting," Song Shuhang replied. Even Senior Seven screamed with all his might when he shot up into the sky with the coiling flight feature!
"Then, what's the name of the disposable flying sword Senior White used to fly away?" Soft Feather looked at Song Shuhang with her bright eyes full of curiosity.
"It should be called '1S edition'." Song Shuhang forced a smile as for the full name, he wouldn't say it even if he were beaten to death.
"Magnificent!" Soft Feather sighed with emotion and said, "I really wish I could try the disposable meteor sword too!"
The nearby Venerable Spirit Butterfly smiled at this daughter and said, "Soft Feather, I've already analyzed the principle behind the disposable meteor sword. Once we return to the Spirit Butterfly Island, I'll manufacture a flying sword with a similar feature just for you."
"Good, good!" Soft Feather continued. "However, I still want to try Senior White's disposable meteor sword. When we meet him in a while, I have to ask him to give me another 'gift'. All the seniors in the group managed to fly happily, but unfortunately, I couldn't receive my gift in time."
The corner of Venerable Spirit Butterfly's mouth twitched.
Song Shuhang didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Venerable White developed the disposable meteor sword series as a punishment. How would Senior White react if Soft Feather were to treat it as something fun and enjoy it?
After thinking this much, Song Shuhang was really looking forward to seeing the scene.
Cough, wait a moment. Soft Feather completely sidetracked them from the topic.
Since he arrived at the Illusory Sword School, should he take a look at the situation?
Had the sea urchin warriors already started to kill the members of the Illusory Sword School?
After thinking this much, Song Shuhang moved toward the edge of the cloud and cautiously looked downward there was no guardrail on the edge of the cloud, hence he didn't feel too safe. Someday in the future, when he could ride a flying sword, he would get one that was as big as a door and had a railing on all sides, even above if necessary! He would feel much safer with that.
After looking in the direction of the Illusory Sword School, Song Shuhang furrowed his brows.
A thick layer of fog covered the whole Illusory Sword School, and it was impossible to tell what was going on inside. After seeing this layer of fog, Song Shuhang recalled the strange soporiferous fog in the core area of the Chu Family.
Therefore, he asked, "Senior Spirit Butterfly, did the sea urchin warriors start to attack the Illusory Sword School?"
"Yes, they already started. That dense fog suddenly appeared and knocked out many of the disciples of the Illusory Sword School. The sea urchin warriors seized the opportunity and killed them. However, some of the disciples were able to react in time and took some countermeasures. They're currently fighting against the sea urchin warriors inside the mist," Venerable Spirit Butterly replied.
"They already started? Such being the case, aren't you going to intervene?" Song Shuhang asked out of curiosity. Wasn't Venerable Spirit Butterfly planning to kill all the sea urchin warriors?
"I'll wait until the Illusory Sword School and the sea urchin warriors are finished with their battle," Venerable Spirit Butterfly replied.
Given his strength, he didn't really need to wait for both parties to weaken themselves before taking care of the sea urchin warriors, right?
Song Shuhang was confused at first, but very soon, he remembered something from a certain point of view, the Illusory Sword School was the 'enemy' of Soft Feather's good friend, Chu Chunying!
As expected, Venerable Spirit Butterfly continued and said, "Little friend Shuhang, there is some friendship between the Chu Family and me, and Soft Feather has a good relationship with a girl that lives there. Since the Illusory Sword School antagonized the Chu Family, the fact that I'm only acting as a bystander should be already good enough for them. Therefore, I'll by no means intervene to help them. That's why everyone says that I fuss over every single detail!"
When he said the last sentence, Venerable Spirit Butterfly had a very satisfied look on his face.
"..." Song Shuhang.
Senior, saying that you fuss about every single detail is hardly a compliment! Is it really alright for you to be so proud of it?
Song Shuhang stretched his neck and tried to look toward the mist-covered Illusory Sword School.
Since Venerable Spirit Butterfly had no intention to make his move, the Illusory Sword School seemed to be doomed.
"Eh? Father, is that why we are standing here and watching the battle amongst the sea urchin warriors and the Illusory Sword School?" Soft Feather immediately understood what was going on after hearing her father's words. "Father, please stop acting as a bystander and take care of them already! Once these sea urchins are taken care of, we can follow behind Senior White. I think it will be much more interesting down there moreover, the Illusory Sword School already lost the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform and isn't a threat to the Chu Family anymore!"
After hearing these words, Venerable Spirit Butterfly smiled and nodded. "What Soft Feather said is reasonable. Such being the case, let's take care of the sea urchin warriors below!"
"..." Song Shuhang.
Senior Spirit Butterfly, didn't you just say that you will 'by no means intervene to help them'? Where did your 'by no means' go?!
Perhaps... the Illusory Sword School might survive this calamity?
Venerable Spirit Butterfly moved toward the edge of the rosy cloud. The wind blew and made his long robe flutter. No matter from which angle you looked, he looked handsome.
Soon after, he said to his disciple Liu Jianyi, "Jianyi, watch closely. What I'm about to display next is another transformation of our Spirit Butterfly Sword Technique. It's completely different than the Butterfly-Phoenix Transformation."
A good teacher would seize each opportunity to teach his students.
After saying this much, Venerable Spirit Butterfly used his finger as a sword and slashed in the direction of the Illusory Sword School, releasing a stream of sword qi.
The sword qi transformed into a huge spirit butterfly. The wings of the butterfly were imbued with sword qi.
"Scatter!" Venerable Spirit Butterfly lightly shouted.
In the next moment, the huge spirit butterfly started to split, changing into countless small butterflies that filled the sky. Each butterfly was made of sharp sword qi.
