Chapter 517: The fight for the demonic gourd
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Is it just my misconception...? Can someone tell me why do I find this fridge, television, microwave oven, and so on so familiar...? I'm probably overthinking it. After all, things such as fridges are mass-produced, and it's not that uncommon the see the same model somewhere else, Song Shuhang thought to himself.
After reaching this conclusion, Song Shuhang carried Li Yinzhu and the others along and entered the street market, taking the opportunity to stroll around and relax.
Just as he was strolling through the market, Song Shuhang heard the conversations between the stall vendors.
They were mostly discussing what happened yesterday. According to the contents of the discussion, several cultivators joined hands and tried to intercept the sword lights flying in the proximity of the moon and retrieve the treasures on them.
Afterward, several cultivators indeed managed to intercept the sword lights successfully.
Normally speaking, it should be a joyous event and something worthy of celebration. But all the cultivators that had managed to catch the sword lights successfully suffered losses and gained nothing... because the only things they found on the sword lights were broken house appliances.
According to the rumors, a young cultivator with long hair was unable to withstand the blow and went looking for a female monster dog for some action, and several other cultivators that had suffered losses cried themselves to sleep.
Needless to say, the house appliances piled up next to the entrance were the spoils of war of the cultivators that joined hands yesterday to intercept the sword lights!
After hearing this much, Song Shuhang broke into a cold sweat that didn't show signs of stopping. No wonder he found those house appliances so familiar... because those were the house appliances that Venerable White sent to space!
What a coincidence!
But hadn't these flying swords flown toward the depths of space? Why did they come back?
Are the runes of the Ten Thousand Mile Flying Escape Technique so strong? To the point that they pulled closer the disposable flying swords even though they were so far away?
It was unknown why the flying swords came back, but Song Shuhang felt very sorry for all the people here.
Just as Song Shuhang was in deep thoughts...
A well-informed cultivator shouted aloud in the street market, "Latest news, latest news! The team led by 'Loose Cultivator Qian Yan' and composed of 'Loose Cultivator Xiong Gui', 'Yan Wuhuan', and the monster capable of assuming human form, 'Mo Ran', managed to intercept the sword light with the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd! At this time, Loose Cultivator Qian Yan's team is carrying the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd and the sword light back!"
Someone had finally managed to obtain the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd?
All the members of the team led by Loose Cultivator Qian Yan were quite powerful. They were famous Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors that were quite well-known in this place where cultivators gathered. Each of them had a Golden Core with five dragon patterns or above.
But judging from the news, even the members of the small team were unable to completely subdue the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd. It seemed they had no choice but to carry it back together with the sword light.
"Dammit, we were one step behind!"
"Loose Cultivator Qian Yan has the devil's luck!"
"I refuse to accept it! Why did we only get a fridge when we joined hands yesterday? That's too unfair!"
"Loose Cultivator Qian Yan and the others are bringing the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd back with the sword light. Does it mean that they aren't planning to subdue it, but to sell it instead?"
"Who knows... but the mad chase after Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd has finally come to an end. Now, no one would have to suffer due to those broken house appliances."
"Has it really come to an end? I don't think things are so simple." Another cultivator laughed and said, "How many people suffered losses while trying to get their hands on the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd earlier? Moreover, the Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors of several powerful influences already regard the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd as something that belongs to them. Do you really think that they will give up so easily?"
As long as Loose Cultivator Qian Yan's team didn't manage to subdue the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd, this matter wouldn't come to an end.
Only God knew how many people were secretly staring at Qian Yan's team!
Perhaps someone would try to snatch the gourd from them before they made it back!
"Someone finally managed to get their hands on the gourd." Song Shuhang faintly smiled.
He didn't really care if someone else obtained it. After all, it wasn't something that belonged to him in the first place. Moreover, he wasn't strong enough to participate in the battle for the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd.
Actually, it was a good thing for Song Shuhang that someone managed to get their hands on the gourd... with that, there won't be any red-haired Spiritual Emperor, black-haired Spiritual Emperor, or xxx-haired Spiritual Emperor trying to capture him after discovering the relationship between the sword lights and the Ten Thousand Mile Flying Escape Technique and forcing him to hand over his treasures and so on. It was such a headache.
In the end, one could be upright only if they didn't have selfish desires!
Song Shuhang brought Li Yinzhu and the others along and strolled through the street market.
It wasn't a 'cultivators' street market' for nothing. It had all kinds of rare treasures and lacked next to nothing.
For example, the pill of youthfulness that even money couldn't buy in the mortal world was sold here in batches. A whole bottle with thirty pills within for a spirit stone of the Second Stage.
Song Shuhang saw some spirit rice sold retail too. Unexpectedly, the price of one packet was two spirit stones of the First Stage, double what he paid the last time! Moreover, the packets of spirit rice were one size smaller; these guys were truly unscrupulous profiteers!
Additionally, there were all kinds of spirit beasts, medicine pills, and spirit plants.
Song Shuhang took a liking to a shop selling magical robes. In there, there were elegant scholarly robes, handsome daoist robes, and even modern windbreakers. They were really cool.
Song Shuhang really wanted to buy them. Unfortunately, he was short of money at this time.
For one moment, he even had the urge to take out the emerald-green kasaya and exchange it for a daoist robe.
But in the end, he managed to resist this urge.
In the end, the emerald-green kasaya was a high-quality product. Its defensive properties were much better than the mass-produced magical clothes in the shop.
Song Shuhang was a reasonable person. He wouldn't disregard his life and safety in favor of something stylish.
Aside from the shops that sold magical robes and flying swords, several other shops that sold cultivation techniques also piqued Song Shuhang's interest.
The Flaming Saber, Earth Spirit Staff, Fire Controlling Art, Basic Foundation Establishment Sword Technique, and other cultivation techniques were sold in the shops. The selling price was different for each of them. They were all ordinary cultivation techniques, and lots of them were incomplete.
After they were sold, the cultivation techniques belonged to the buyer, and they could pass them down to the disciple they liked the most.
After looking around for a while, Song Shuhang faintly sighed.
The cultivation techniques were quite pricey. Even the cheapest foundation establishment cultivation technique was sold for a spirit stone of the Third Stage or higher price.
The cultivation techniques were so expensive because each volume was transcribed using a special method, with a special brush, ink, and paper. Moreover, most of the volumes had a low-level illusory technique engraved on them that allowed them to create an illusory space where the technique was passed down.
However, not all the volumes of cultivation techniques here present were well written like the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique, which was using a combination of text and pictures to create the illusory space where the technique was passed down.
Most of the volumes here present had a rough illusory technique engraved on them, and the number of times one could use them were limited.
"Wait until I have money... I'll come back."
All poor wretches with no money had the same train of thought!
As Song Shuhang and the others strolled in the street market, Li Yinzhu started to get sleepy.
During the last two days, the time she spent sleeping was gradually increasing, and the cold emanating from her body was also getting stronger. Perhaps it wouldn't be long before she was confined by ice once more.
Song Shuhang was really powerless when it came to dealing with Li Yinzhu's disease.
He could only hope to find a cure for her disease in the 'forbidden area' when exploring it with Venerable White.
"Sleepy." Li Yinzhu pulled Song Shuhang's clothes and yawned; her silvery eyes were all misty. She looked extremely cute at this time.
Song Shuhang bent his body and skillfully embraced Li Yinzhu.
Li Yinzhu also conveniently leaned against Song Shuhang's shoulder and closed her eyes after finding a comfortable position, quickly falling asleep.
There was a special tacit understanding between the two.
After embracing Li Yinzhu, Song Shuhang said to Chu Chu, "Miss Chu Chu, let's head back."
Chu Chu nodded. She didn't buy many things, either.
The ancestor of the Chu Family gave her some spirit stones before she set out, but she was unwilling to spend them carelessly. She wanted to spend them on truly useful things and not to squander them around.
The party of three humans plus Yu Jiaojiao entered Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's immortal boat, preparing to head back to the immortal cave.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's two servants were driving the immortal boat. Therefore, Song Shuhang and the others didn't have to go through the trouble.
The trio sat tightly.
Song Shuhang carefully held Li Yinzhu in his embrace. While she was sleeping, the cold emanating from her body got even stronger, and Song Shuhang almost felt as though he was hugging a chunk of ice.
"Resist for some more, resist until we explore the forbidden area. Perhaps things will turn for the better at that time," Song Shuhang muttered to himself.
While hugging her, he felt as though he had taken Li Tiansu's place and that Li Yinzhu was his daughter now.
In the Heart Aperture, the ghost spirit slightly shook, reacting to Song Shuhang's feelings.
The immortal boat took off and slowly headed toward Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's immortal cave.
Song Shuhang said, "I must absolutely complete the challenge of the hundred giants today."
Constantly battling against the giants allowed him to benefit immensely.
Although he was exhausted both in mind and body after fighting against them for the whole day yesterday, his constitution had been strengthened quite a bit thanks to it.
The true qi in his dantian had slowly calmed down, and he didn't feel like he was going to explode at any time anymore.
It was the same with the mental energy between his eyebrows; it wasn't hurting as it did before.
The immortal boat kept advancing forward.
Just as the boat was advancing, the servant on the right who was currently controlling it suddenly stood up and stretched out his hand, pulling the lever on top of his head.
The lever was probably the brake of the immortal boat. After the servant pulled it, the speed of the immortal boat reduced until it stopped.
"Is something the matter?" Song Shuhang asked.
The other servant turned his head around and said to Song Shuhang with a smile, "Daoist Priest Shuhang, Fairy Chu Chu, don't worry. It's just that some cultivators are fighting ahead of us. Therefore, it's better if we take a roundabout route so as to avoid getting involved in the fight."
The immortal boat was a very precious magical treasure, and it would be very troublesome to repair it if it were to get damaged. Therefore, it was better to change route if cultivators were fighting in the front.
Song Shuhang nodded and shot a glance outside, seeing two groups of cultivators crossing swords.
The fighting scene was extremely dazzling.
Flying swords were spinning and sword lights exploding, dazzling like the rising sun. One was simply unable to look straight at them.
Powerful saber qi was descending like a waterfall, single-handedly destroying all the things that dared to block its path.
Runes were also revolving, covering the whole battlefield. The number of runes was very high; there were probably more than a thousand of them.
The two sides were both composed of expert cultivators.
At this time, a wild shout was transmitted from the battlefield. "Loose Cultivator Qian Yan, know your place and obediently hand over the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd! Otherwise, I'll kill you and extract your soul, torturing it day and night!"
"Hmph! Come and do it if you have the balls! Do you think I'm afraid of you? Everyone is capable of boasting... do you really think I would be afraid of you disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect?!" Another clear and resounding voice was transmitted from the battlefield.
The Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd had given rise to a battle for its control...
