Chapter 428: Little friend Shuhang, here is your kasaya!
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
The seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group continued to happily modify their hand-guided tractors.
The methods they were using to modify their tractors were getting more and more scary...
Song Shuhang dared to guarantee that these fifty or so hand-guided tractors could demolish a city if they were to run through one.
And the problem was that the seniors of the group weren't satisfied with this level of power and kept adding more and more features.
Song Shuhang muttered to himself, "I feel that it will be a rather scary competition..."
"Don't worry. The fellow daoists of the group know what they are doing. The scene will look lively at most, but there won't be any incidents." True Monarch Yellow Mountain's gentle voice echoed in Song Shuhang's ears.
"Senior Yellow Mountain, hello." Song Shuhang smiled and asked, "Senior, are you going to participate in the competition as well and fight for a place in the first five?"
True Monarch Yellow Mountain waved his hand and said, "Amongst the people gathered here, I'm one of those that don't have the time to explore the ancient ruins with Venerable White. After all, I need to prepare to advance in realm. Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said that I've stayed in the Sixth Stage for far too long and that it is time to advance to the next realm and become a Venerable. However, I can be treated as one of the organizers of the competition, and I find it rather interesting too therefore, I decided to relax a bit before advancing to the next realm."
After saying this much, True Monarch Yellow Mountain grabbed a box behind him and handed it to Song Shuhang.
"?" Song Shuhang looked at True Monarch Yellow Mountain in puzzlement.
"This is the reward for receiving Venerable White take it, it's a collective gift from the members of the Nine Provinces Number One Group," True Monarch Yellow Mountain said.
"Thank you, Senior." Song Shuhang took the box. He was very curious as to what the content was. "Can I open it now?"
"Sure, go ahead." True Monarch Yellow Mountain nodded.
Song Shuhang opened the box. Immediately after, he saw bottles full of medicinal pills as well as a few medicinal pastes.
True Monarch Yellow Mountain told him about the various medicinal pills.
"This is the 'Starry True Qi Refining Pill 6S edition' of the Starry Pavilion that one can use while practicing, strengthening the overall effect of the training and letting one get twice the results with half the effort. There are six bottles in total, and each bottle has thirty pills. Using one pill per day is more than enough.
These are the 'Snow Lake True Qi Powder 7th edition' and the 'Volcano Pill', they can both help one recover their true qi. The former can be taken only in liquid form, while the latter is a normal pill. These two medicines can help you recover some of your true qi in the middle of a critical fight. If used while sitting in meditation, your true qi will recover at an even faster pace. There are six bottles of each of them.
This is the 'Tiger Bone & Bear Gall Paste A8 edition', a medicinal paste than can treat external injuries. There are ten packages in total. It's something that Fellow Daoist Snow Wolf produced personally, and it's very good to treat external injuries.
Then, there is the 'Gentle Dao Pill 5h edition' which has a similar function but has to be taken orally. There are ten bottles in total, and it's something that Fellow Daoist Ancient Lake Temple produced personally. It's a medicine with gentle properties, very suitable for you."
In total, there were next to thirty bottles of medicinal pills and ten packages of medicinal pastes.
All these medicines would last Song Shuhang for at least half a year!
Song Shuhang was extremely grateful. After all, these were medicinal pills he could use immediately. "All of you seniors must have gone through a lot of trouble to gather these medicines, thank you!"
Afterward, he cautiously closed the box and stored it inside his rabbit-shaped size-reducing purse.
"Haha, you're right about the trouble part," True Monarch Yellow Mountain said with a smile. It was mostly because Song Shuhang didn't seem to lack anything although he had just advanced to the Second Stage Realm. As a consequence, the seniors of the group had to rack their brains quite a bit to find something suitable for him.
As they were speaking, True Monarch Yellow Mountain shot a glance at Song Shuhang's size-reducing purse Shuhang even had a pseudo-space bag? This purse alone was as valuable as the total amount of wealth that loose cultivators of the Third or Fourth Stage had amassed!
As soon as Song Shuhang put the box with the medicines away, True Monarch Yellow Mountain took out another small box, giving it to him. "This is a surprise I prepared for you. It's a gift for taking care of little Doudou all this time. Therefore, I hope you won't refuse this token of gratitude."
Song Shuhang received the small box; it seemed somewhat heavy.
What was inside this box?
"There is a set of magical clothes inside the box. Since you didn't seem to lack weapons, medicinal pills, and cultivation techniques, I decided to gift you a high-quality set of magical clothes of the Second Stage rank that just happened to lie around in my treasure house. It is manufactured with the silk of the 'emerald-green silkworm', and it's waterproof, fireproof, and arms-proof. After wearing it, you can block bullets from small firearms even without activating its defensive powers. But if little friend Song Shuhang were to activate its defensive abilities, even a rain of bullets wouldn't pose a problem!" True Monarch Yellow Mountain explained after seeing Song Shuhang's confused expression.
The more Song Shuhang was hearing, the more his eyes were lighting up.
These magical clothes were simply too incredible! Several times better than bullet-proof clothing!
As that wasn't enough, they were manufactured with the precious silk of the 'emerald-green silkworm'. Although Song Shuhang didn't know what the rank of the 'emerald-green silkworm' was, this set of magical clothes was still produced with the silk of a spirit beast!
The picture of a handsome white-colored scholarly robe resurfaced in Song Shuhang's mind. The type that would make him look like an intellectual after wearing it.
Then, it was the picture of a pure white daoist robe. After wearing it, he would look like someone with high integrity and bearing.
Then, the picture of the modern windbreaker also appeared in his mind; it likewise looked very cool a set of magical clothes similar to the ordinary-looking clothes that Soft Feather was wearing!
True Monarch Yellow Mountain smiled and said, "Open it. I can guarantee that it's something very suitable for you."
Song Shuhang stretched out his hand and slowly opened the box.
When the box was opened, bright light spread in all directions.
The light was very bright!
However, it was at the same time gentle and didn't hurt his eyes.
Song Shuhang slightly narrowed his eyes and looked at the 'magical clothes' inside the box!
It was a green robe made of natural silk and Song Shuhang wasn't able to make out the outline of this set of magical clothes. As far as he could see, this set of magical clothes was actually a bed sheet?
The green-colored bed sheet had a checked pattern with several black-lined rectangles drawn upon it, just like the bricks of a wall.
Something's amiss. No matter how I look at it, there seems to be something wrong!
Song Shuhang was unable to relate these bed sheet-like magical clothes to a daoist robe or a scholarly robe.
On the other hand, this checked bed sheet made Song Shuhang remember about a very famous vestment.
Song Shuhang's mind automatically rejected the name of that very famous vestment.
It can't be, right? Senior Yellow Mountain can't have possibly decided to gift me that vestment, right? Perhaps there is something else concealed inside the bed sheet?
"What do you think? It's beautiful, isn't it?" True Monarch Yellow Mountain said with a smile.
Song Shuhang took a deep breath and asked, "Senior Yellow Mountain, do these magical clothes have a name?"
"Yes, they have a pretty good name." True Monarch Yellow Mountain slightly nodded and said, "It's an emerald-green kasaya. A very refined name, isn't it?"
"An emerald-green ******!" Song Shuhang's brain automatically censored the word after 'emerald-green'.
But even if his brain censored the word, it didn't change the fact that what he was holding was still an emerald-green ******!
Song Shuhang was dumbstruck. He held onto the box and stood in place, looking very shaken.
This gift from True Monarch Yellow Mountain had caught him off-guard!
After seeing Song Shuhang's surprised expression, True Monarch Yellow Mountain pinched his chin. It seemed the gift totally caught little friend Song Shuhang off-guard. After seeing Song Shuhang's 'pleasantly' surprised expression, True Monarch Yellow Mountain felt an even greater sense of accomplishment.
After all, it was always nice to see the pleasantly surprised expression of the other party while gifting them something.
At this time, Guoguo ran next to Song Shuhang while rubbing his butt. Now that Great Master Profound Principle was busy modifying his hand-guided tractor, he seized the opportunity to run to Song Shuhang's side.
On Guoguo's shoulder, Yu Jiaojiao was taking a nap.
When Doudou and Young Master Phoenix Slayer started their fight, Yu Jiaojiao quickly ran to Guoguo's side. The little fish didn't want to be the innocent victim of a disaster.
"Eh? A kasaya!" After seeing the emerald-green kasaya in Song Shuhang's hands, Guoguo beamed with joy. "Senior Brother Shuhang, have you finally made up your mind and decided to become a buddhist monk? Like I said earlier, the shape of Senior Brother Shuhang's head is perfectly suitable to become a monk!"
Suitable to become a monk become a monk monk...
Song Shuhang stiffly turned his head around and forced a smile.
"Senior Brother Shuhang, quickly put it on and let me see. I want to have a kasaya too. But unfortunately, the disciples of the Faraway Wandering Temple can obtain a vestment manufactured by the temple only after they reach the Second Stage Realm. I really want to know how it feels to wear a kasaya!" An envious expression appeared in Guoguo's eyes.
The mini Yu Jiaojiao also woke up and turned her eyes around.
After shrinking up, Yu Jiaojiao looked like a cute and small fairy. She gently clapped her claws and said, "Fellow Daoist Shuhang, try it out."
Song Shuhang held the kasaya with his trembling hands Do I really have to wear this emerald-green ******?
True Monarch Yellow Mountain heartily laughed and said, "Little friend Shuhang, wear it and let us have a look. The kasaya has an automatic dust-proof feature. Don't worry, it won't get dirty."
"..." Song Shuhang.
True Monarch, that's not the problem!
Song Shuhang felt his liver throb with pain Senior Yellow Mountain, why did you gift me an emerald-green ******?!
Moreover, Senior Yellow Mountain is clearly from a daoist school, why did he have a ****** lying around in his treasure-house?!
Song Shuhang took a deep breath and raised his head, looking at True Monarch Yellow Mountain, Guoguo, and Yu Jiaojiao.
Forget it, even if it's a kasaya, it's still a token of gratitude from Senior Yellow Mountain...
At worst, I can just store it inside the size-reducing purse most of the time and wear it only before battles or while exploring secret realms and the likes!
After thinking up to this point, Song Shuhang's heart finally calmed down after all, he wasn't going to wear this gadget all the time.
"Fine, I'll wear it and let you have a look," Song Shuhang said.
Then, he clenched his teeth and grabbed the emerald-green kasaya, starting to put it on.
In the next moment, a photoflash flashed from a distant place.
It was Soft Feather. She instantly immortalized the cool scene of Song Shuhang grabbing the kasaya and draping it over his shoulders...
