Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said thoughtlessly, "As for the price... I think that 10,000 spirit stones of the Fifth Stage should suffice. If we convert them into spirit stones of the Seventh Stage, it's only a hundred spirit stones in total. It's a pretty good deal."
A hundred spirit stones of the Seventh Stage didn't seem that much.
But if we were to convert them into spirit stones of the Fourth Stage, they would amount to 100,000! And if we convert them into spirit stones of the Third Stage, they would amount to one million!
Earlier, Song Shuhang saw that the seniors issued several small daily duties in the Nine Provinces Number One Group's group space. The reward for these small duties was seven or eight spirit stones of the Second Stage. Of course, these spirit stones were only a supplement. The real reward consisted of cultivation techniques, medicine pills, and other things of practical use.
But if he were to convert them into spirit stones of the Second Stage, those hundred spirit stones of the Seventh Stage would amount to whole ten million stones! Song Shuhang felt that it would take him a lifetime to gather such a huge amount of spirit stones! Moreover, he already owed several spirit stones of the Fourth Stage to Venerable White.
After seeing that Song Shuhang was in a daze, Yu Jiaojiao said with a smile, "Shuhang, it seems you're earnestly thinking how to save money now."
"Ahaha." Song Shuhang made a hollow laugh. Jiaojiao, life is hard enough as it is!
At the same time, Li Yinzhu snuck behind Song Shuhang and grabbed his clothes with her small hands. She was rubbing her eyes and had a sleepy expression on her face. Due to the cold disease affecting her body, she was constantly in a hibernation-like state. Sometimes, she would sleep for of the day.
After entering the immortal boat, Chu Chu found a place and sat down, starting to recover her strength. Earlier, the Mount Tai Seal placed a huge burden on her body. While she was sealed, she had to constantly use her strength to resist the pressure of the seal. As a consequence, she was dead tired at this time.
Afterward, they met that red-haired Spiritual Emperor. The pressure of the Fifth Stage emanating from the man made Chu Chu gasp for breath even though the space capsule separated them.
Is this Mister Song Shuhang's daily life? Is each day of his life so stimulating and stressful at the same time?
Traveling to space and facing a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor was quite the thrill. The things that Chu Chu experienced when she ventured outside were nothing compared to it.
Actually, since the moment she entered the space capsule and Fairy Firefly sent them to space, Chu Chu felt as though she was still in a dream and had yet to wake up.
According to Chu Chu's estimations, if she could stay by Song Shuhang's side and experience these kinds of stimulating things each day, it wouldn't be long before her realm advanced by leaps and bounds.
Because one could die at any moment if they weren't to give it their all while under pressure!
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue snapped his finger, and one of the puppet waiters on the immortal boat brought Shuhang and the others some Spirit Green Tea to relieve their fatigue.
Next, Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said, "Right. Little friend Shuhang, I saw you mention in the group earlier that you wanted to strengthen your constitution. Is that correct?"
"Yes, Senior. Due to the Whale Swallowing Technique and another unexpected event, the amount of mental energy and true qi in my body has far surpassed the maximum amount my constitution can withstand. Unless I immediately strengthen my constitution, my body might explode at any time," Song Shuhang said, somewhat depressed.
He was forced to use his true qi once again during the battle with the red-haired Spiritual Emperor. Even now, he felt as though his dantian was filled to the point of bursting, and even his head was faintly aching due to the mental energy. Luckily, he managed to strengthen his constitution a bit while he was affected by the Mount Tai Seal. Thanks to that, he was able to hold on reluctantly.
"If you want to strengthen your constitution, I can provide you a good place to practice in my immortal cave on the moon," Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said. "There are still two days left before the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue opens. Therefore, you can make the best use of your time and strengthen your body within these two days. You must strengthen your constitution until it's not a drag anymore before we start exploring the grave."
"A good place where I can strengthen my constitution? What kind of place is it?" Song Shuhang's interest was immediately piqued. His constitution not being strong enough was one of his major worries. No matter what kind of method it was, if it could quickly strengthen it, he was willing to give it a try. Of course, modifying his body and the likes were out of the question.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said, "Not long ago, True Monarch Yellow Mountain developed something called 'gravity regulator' together with other people. It's something similar to a centrifugal machine and can increase the gravity three to ten times. I ordered one, and it's now placed inside my immortal cave. In a while, I'll move that gadget out and place it in a room on the sixteenth underground floor of the immortal cave. In there, there is a large amount of mysterious matter, as well as special energy emitted from the moon. Both of them can strengthen the constitution of cultivators. You should try to cultivate there at a gravity two or three times higher than normal. The effects should be pretty good."
"Training with gravity? It sounds awesome." Song Shuhang asked thoughtlessly, "Senior, have you tried it to see the effects?"
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue shrugged his shoulders and said, "It doesn't have any effect on me. Even if the gravity was ten times higher than normal, I wouldn't feel anything if I were to enter the room and stand there. However, I've seen in anime and novels that people can train in places with increased gravity to strengthen their constitution. I feel that there must be some truth behind it. Anyway, give it a try and see how it goes. If it's effective, I can invite here the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group so that they can bring over their disciples to train."
"..." Song Shuhang.
The immortal boat wasn't advancing at a fast speed.
Therefore, it landed beside the immortal cave on the moon the next day in the wee hours of the morning. July 28th, Sunday.
It was Sunday, and Song Shuhang's dao name was Virtuous Cultivator.
This dao name gave Song Shuhang a strange feeling. Whenever the name was read aloud, it gave him the vibe of a good-hearted person that was ready to get friendzoned. Therefore, Song Shuhang made up his mind and decided to remove this dao name from the list in a few days.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's immortal cave had several types of barriers and formations, gravity and oxygen were present as well; it was not different from Earth. After entering the immortal cave, both the spacesuit and the space capsule were placed on one side.
Unknowingly, Li Yinzhu leaned against Song Shuhang and fell soundly sleep.
On the other hand, Yu Jiaojiao sat in meditation as soon as she entered the range of the moon.
It seemed that she wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to close up for a bit. The moonlight and the mysterious energy and matter released by the moon were very beneficial to monster cultivators. By practicing here, Yu Jiaojiao would obtain double the results!
To adjust to the time on the moon, Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue arranged different rooms for Song Shuhang and the others and told them to rest first.
Early morning, 8 AM. Since he was exhausted yesterday, Song Shuhang overslept a bit today.
But in the next moment, a stabbing pain was transmitted from his lower abdomen. Something bumped into him and woke up him. The pain transmitting from his lower abdomen turned his stomach upside-down.
Who is it? Who suddenly attacked my lower abdomen this early in the morning?
Song Shuhang immediately opened his eyes. Soon after, he discovered that a tender green onion with its upper part missing was cheerfully jumping around.
"I can feel it~ I can feel it~ This whole place is full of a special type of energy that makes me feel very comfortable. The energy is like an overflowing and endless stream. With that, I can quickly recover to my optimal condition and assume human form once again!" the green onion that had now grown hands and feet said excitedly.
Just as she was jumping around, she carelessly jumped on Song Shuhang's belly again... causing him to feel a stabbing pain once more. Only God knew how Lady Onion jumping around could create such a fearsome impact.
"Lady Onion, can't you wake me up in a less painful manner?" Song Shuhang forced a smile and stretched out his hand, grabbing the enlightenment stone.
"Let me go, let me go! Let me absorb the energy in this place. I want to quickly assume human form again!" Lady Onion shouted.
"Stop causing trouble." Song Shuhang squeezed Lady Onion in his pocket and said, "If you keep causing trouble, I'll cut your newly growing green onion shoot."
Lady Onion immediately calmed down.
Just outside the room was Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's dining room.
At this time, Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was holding a newspaper in his hands and reading it with gusto.
After seeing Song Shuhang appear, he smiled and said, "Good morning, little friend Shuhang. Did you sleep well last night?"
"Yes, Senior. I slept like a log until broad daylight," Song Shuhang said. "Are the others still sleeping?"
"Yes. Except for little friend Jiaojiao, who is training, the other two girls are still sleeping," Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said. "What do you want to eat for breakfast?"
"Anything is fine, Senior. At this time, I'm so hungry that I feel I can eat even a bull." Song Shuhang rubbed his stomach.
Due to the blessing of the Whale Swallowing Technique, he was starving at this time, to the point that even his stomach was sour.
"In that case, you might as well come over and try the cooking of my personal immortal chef. Perhaps little friend might obtain some extra benefits while enjoying the breakfast." Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue stood up and opened the sealed up dishes on the dining table, revealing the delicious food inside.
"Immortal chef?" Song Shuhang immediately thought of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue's Immortal Feast and said, "Just like Immortal Fairy Bie Xue?"
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said, "Yes, something of the sort. Of course, my personal immortal chef isn't nearly as skilled as Immortal Fairy Bie Xue. However, the taste of the dishes is still excellent."
"In that case, I'll be impolite." Song Shuhang had seen the seniors in the group talk about how delicious and incredible the food at Immortal Fairy Bie Xue's Immortal Feast was several times.
Now then, how would the dishes prepared by Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's personal immortal chef taste?
Song Shuhang raised his chopsticks and stretched them out toward a plate with something that resembled beefsteak inside. He was starving and felt that the big chunk of meat might help alleviate his hunger.
The big chunk of beefsteak was delicious yet not greasy, and felt as though it was melting in his mouth.
Moreover, he didn't know whether it was just his misconception, but when he swallowed down the beefsteak, he felt his constitution strengthen a bit.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said with a smile, "Did you notice the effects?"
"Did it strengthen my constitution?" Song Shuhang said. He just ate a chunk of meat, but it was unexpectedly able to strengthen his constitution. Anyway, the strengthening effect was quite low. It was only comparable to him practicing the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique once.
"This is the skill of an immortal chef. Although the effects aren't comparable to those of medicine pills, the food they prepare wins in flavor, and it doesn't have side effects, either. Moreover, the ingredients are much easier to find too," Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said. "However, my personal immortal chef isn't that skilled, and even the strengthening effect on your constitution is rather low."
Song Shuhang sighed with emotion and said, "I'm already very satisfied." Now, he was really looking forward to attending Immortal Fairy Bie Xue's Immortal Feast. How much of a boost would he receive after eating the food there?
After Song Shuhang finished breakfast, Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue placed the newspaper down and got up, saying, "Little friend Shuhang, shall we practice if you are done eating breakfast?"
"'We'? Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, are you going to practice together with me?" Song Shuhang said.
"Yes, let's practice together!"
"Sure, Senior!" Song Shuhang got up with a jump. Is Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue going to instruct me?
It was literally a 'favorable treatment'!
