Yu Jiaojiao, who was lying face-down on the edge of the window, suddenly opened her eyes and said in a soft voice, "Fellow Daoist Shuhang, we have guests."
After shrinking up, Yu Jiaojiao still had the body of a fish and the legs of a human. However, she looked as lovely as before. At this time, she looked like one of those cute little fairies.
But if she were to assume her true form that was several meters long, things would take a scary turn...
We can agree that regardless of what we were talking about, it would be righteous and lovely as long as it was small and exquisite!
"I know." Song Shuhang gently pushed the door of the room open. He didn't want to disturb the soundly sleeping Guoguo.
At the same time Yu Jiaojiao induced the approaching sea urchin warriors, Song Shuhang also induced these uninvited guests.
It wasn't that Song Shuhang's senses had suddenly become as good as a cultivator's of the Fourth Stage like Yu Jiaojiao. The reason he induced those sea urchin warriors was the Mark of the Sea Urchin Slayer on his body.
When the sea urchin warriors used their innate ability to lock onto his coordinates, Song Shuhang was also able to faintly sense them as they were moving closer.
Yu Jiaojiao blinked her small eyes and said, "Do you need my help?"
"If Miss Jiaojiao wants to lend a hand, it would be truly great," Song Shuhang said with a smile. He wasn't one of those people that would needlessly suffer just to act cool.
He didn't know how strong these sea urchin warriors were. If Yu Jiaojiao were to come with him, he would have a strong helper with him.
"Just call me Jiaojiao. It feels strange when you add that 'Miss'." Yu Jiaojiao giggled. Afterward, she jumped up from the windowsill and directly landed on Song Shuhang's head.
Soon after, she hid her small body within Song Shuhang's long hair.
Song Shuhang left the room and climbed up until reaching the sun deck of the cruise ship while evading the surveillance. Afterward, he glanced down toward the boundless sea.
Right at this time, a sound was transmitted from the surface of the sea.
Soon after, sixteen figures jumped up from the depths of the sea and tightly stuck to the cruise ship.
"The valiant sea urchin warriors fear nothing!" the sea urchin warriors lightly shouted and started to quickly climb toward the top of the cruise ship. The sea urchin warriors had the bloodline of the monster race. Therefore, ordinary people couldn't see them unless they wished to be seen.
While climbing up, they induced Song Shuhang's presence.
"The target is on the top of the cruise ship, kill them!" the leading sea urchin warriors whose body was giving off a metallic luster shouted.
Song Shuhang was currently occupying a commanding position and looking downward at the quickly climbing sea urchin warriors.
Yu Jiaojiao's voice was transmitted inside his ear. "Except for the strongest one, which is at the Third Stage Realm, the other ones are all sea urchins of the Second Stage Realm."
After knowing the strength of these sea urchin warriors, Song Shuhang heaved a sigh of relief. If none of the sixteen sea urchin warriors was at the Fourth Stage, he didn't need to worry.
Song Shuhang got a bunch of talismans from Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman earlier. Even if he didn't have Yu Jiaojiao's help, he could use the talismans to take care of these sixteen sea urchin warriors.
"Can I trouble Miss Jiaojiao to take care of that sea urchin warrior of the Third Stage? I'll deal with the remaining ones." Song Shuhang took the treasured saber Broken Tyrant out of his size-reducing purse.
"Sure," Yu Jiaojiao said. "Moreover, just call me Jiaojiao."
Song Shuhang laughed. Since the sea urchin warriors were still climbing up, he quietly drew the rune of the Lightning Palm on his left hand. At the same time, he pinched a powerful sword talisman between his fingers.
He grabbed the treasured saber Broken Tyrant with his right hand and gently spun his wrist.
True qi poured into the saber, and the Flaming Saber was ready to slash out at any moment.
Now, he only needed to wait for the sea urchin warriors to enter the attack range of the Flaming Saber Technique. Afterward, Song Shuhang would let them have a good taste of roasted sea urchins.
"Wahahaha! The target wants to resist!" the sea urchin warriors looked at Song Shuhang and roared, "All the people that have been soaked with the blood of a sea urchin warrior are enemies of our sea urchin race! Fleeing is useless. No matter where you go, we'll still find you and kill you! Not only you, even your family members and the people related to you will be implicated. They'll also die at the hands of the sea urchin warriors! But if you obediently let us cut your head off, we sea urchin warriors will forgive your family members!"
"..." Song Shuhang.
Can't they change their pre-prepared lines a bit?
Song Shuhang slightly raised the treasured saber Broken Tyrant and locked onto a sea urchin warrior of the Second Stage on the left side that was the second fastest one amongst the bunch.
The fastest one was that sea urchin warrior of the Third Stage, but Yu Jiaojiao would take care of him.
"A bit closer" Song Shuhang muttered. His true qi was already in an active state, and the flames of the Flaming Saber Technique were ready to burn up at any moment.
Just as Song Shuhang's senses were heightened to the limit and he was ready to get into action, several figures approached at high speed from afar.
"Evildoers! Stop in your tracks!" the tall and stout leader of the monster hunters roared.
In the next moment, the stout man stretched out his hand and tore several talismans from his shoulder.
"Whizz, whizz, whizz!"
Afterward, the stout man hurled the various talismans toward the sea urchin warriors.
In the blink of an eye, the talismans surrounded the sea urchin warriors and linked together, turning into a golden square-shaped space that only cultivators could see. As a consequence, all the sea urchin warriors were now trapped inside the space.
This was the 'monster hunter space'. With the usage of a formation, it was possible to turn the space within the square into a battlefield. It was something monster hunters had devised to prevent ordinary people from getting hurt while they were hunting monsters.
After trapping the sea urchin warriors inside the space, the twenty monster hunters cried out and barged into the golden space as well.
"..." Song Shuhang.
Are they trying to kill-steal?
"Eh? Those are monster hunters! Those guys are really troublesome to deal with," Yu Jiaojiao said.
At the same time, she further reduced the size of her body, completely hiding within Song Shuhang's hair.
She wasn't afraid of these monster hunters. After all, the strongest of these monster hunters was also only at the Third Stage Realm. On the other hand, Yu Jiaojiao had successfully crossed the tribulation and was now a monster of the Fourth Stage.
However, monster hunters were really troublesome. If it was possible not to get involved with them, it was better to do so. Therefore, she hid and weakened her aura to the utmost.
Song Shuhang gazed at that golden space attached to the cruise ship and said, "Should we also enter that golden space and take a look?"
"It's up to you. However, I won't come out since there are monster hunters around. These guys are really troublesome. If you attack the little ones, the bigger ones will come out. If you attack the bigger ones, those that are even bigger will come out as well! They are very annoying," Yu Jiaojiao said.
"In that case, hide well, Jiaojiao. I'm entering to take a look," Song Shuhang said.
After all, these sea urchin warriors had come here for him.
Song Shuhang got ready to enter that golden space.
But right at this time, a black horse leg suddenly appeared in the sky, ruthlessly trampling at him.
This leg belonged to that black horse spirit Young Master Phoenix Slayer mentioned earlier.
Earlier, they were too close to Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman's island. Since many powerful experts had converged there, the black horse spirit didn't dare to make its move.
But that now that the cruise ship was far away from the small island, the black horse spirit finally seized the opportunity to get into action.
It was a black horse spirit that had practiced until becoming capable of assuming human form. In other words, its strength was at least of the Fifth Stage Realm. Even if it was just a casual kick, it wasn't something that Song Shuhang could afford to meet head-on.
"A monster of the Fifth Stage?" Yu Jiaojiao's body inside Song Shuhang's hair suddenly tensed up
Although there was only the difference of a realm between the Fourth and Fifth Stage, a Fourth Stage Innate had still true qi circulating inside their bodies. On the other hand, after Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors had condensed their Golden Core, all the true qi inside their body would change into spiritual energy.
Even if Yu Jiaojiao were to give her all, she wouldn't be able to block this black horse spirit.
Right at this time, Song Shuhang suddenly called out, "Senior Phoenix Slayer!"
"Don't worry, I'm here." Young Master Phoenix Slayer's voice echoed. At the same time, he appeared in front of that black horse spirit and pushed up his glasses. Afterward, he used a finger and poked toward the leg of the black horse spirit.
In the Fifth Stage Realm, a different number of dragon patterns on one's Golden or Monster Core could lead to a large difference in strength.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer was a monster with seven dragon patterns on his Monster Core.
On the other hand, the number of dragon patterns on the Monster Core of that black horse spirit wasn't high. It was the type that belonged to the bottom-class of the Fifth Stage.
After Young Master Phoenix Slayer poked at it with his finger, the black horse spirit was sent flying while in an upside-down position.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer slightly pushed his glasses up and disappeared. The next time he appeared, he was already next to the black horse spirit, raising his hand and getting ready to attack it.
The black horse spirit issued a long cry and was likewise unwilling to show weakness. It assumed human form and prepared to battle with Young Master Phoenix Slayer.
Song Shuhang carefully looked at the two powerful monsters of the Fifth Stage battle in the sky. With the corner of the eye, he also shot a look at what was happening inside the golden-colored monster hunter space.
Now then, were the black horse spirit and the sea urchin warriors working together? After all, they decided to attack him almost at the same time.
Song Shuhang was in deep thoughts while looking at the unfolding battles.
Right at this time, Yu Jiaojiao's voice suddenly echoed in his ears. "Shuhang, be careful!"
Just as Yu Jiaojiao reminded him, Song Shuhang turned around without hesitation and slashed out.
Raging flames started to burn on the blade of the saber, and the Flaming Saber Technique slashed behind him with a power that seemed to be capable of burning the heavens.
"Ding!" Song Shuhang's violent attack hit the opposite party.
Song Shuhang's blow forced the opposite party to show their face.
It was figure wearing ninja-like clothes and holding a small hammer in its hand this hammer looked the same as those small hammers that people used in their daily lives.
"The Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique!" Song Shuhang called out.
The moment he exchanged blows with the opposite party, he sensed a familiar feeling stemming from the true qi of the opposite party.
If he wasn't mistaken, the opposite party was practicing the Pig Chapter of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique.
From the looks of it, the other party seemed to have the strength of someone that had just entered the Third Stage.
Song Shuhang narrowed his eyes and said, "The mantis stalks the cicada while unaware of the oriole behind as well as the poisonous snake hiding in the dark. What a dangerous situation!"
"..." The man wearing black clothes slightly retreated and closely watched Song Shuhang. Soon after, he said in a husky voice, "I didn't expect that you would also be practicing the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique."
"Hehe." Song Shuhang gently laughed.
"Such being the case, I won't need to waste my time and strength," the man wearing black clothes said ferociously.
"Oh?" The corner of Song Shuhang's mouth rose.
"I'll gladly accept the 'origin true qi' in your body! Then, I'll catch you and exchange you for the antidote." The man wearing black clothes stretched out his hand toward Song Shuhang and made a grabbing motion.
After modifying the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique, he could swallow the origin true qi from the bodies of other cultivators that had practiced the revised version of the technique through a secret method!
But contrary to his expectation, even after making the grabbing motion twice, he was unable to steal the origin true qi of the opposite party.
It wasn't all. Song Shuhang quickly dashed toward him, and the ball of lightning in his left hand that was currently emitting crackling sounds moved toward his head.
"Dammit!" The man wearing black clothes was now clear what had happened. The trick he left behind in the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique was probably discovered and corrected by that powerful expert.
That expert quietly poisoned him when he went to his place to ransom his subordinates what a sinister fellow!
