Song Shuhang roared, "Tyrannical Whirlwind Slash!"
In the next moment, Song Shuhang displayed the Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk footwork and moved as fast as lightning, slashing at the sea urchin warrior to the rightmost side! Although what he shouted was 'Tyrannical Whirlwind Slash', what he used was the 'Flaming Saber Technique'.
It was something that Song Shuhang had learned after witnessing the battle between the disciples of the Illusory Sword School and the Chu Family on the Grievance Settling Platform. While fighting someone head on, loudly shouting the name of a powerful technique could help strengthen one's imposing manner and slightly increase the strength of the move.
But if one shouted the real name of the technique they were going to use, it would be very easy for the enemy to counter it. Therefore, most cultivators shouted casual awe-inspiring technique names while battling. There were several reasons for it. For example, they could strengthen their imposing manner, confuse the enemy, and, if the real name of their technique sucked, they could just use a fake name to cover it up.
In short, if one shouted aloud 'Bladestorm' and then used the 'Savage Impact', there was a chance that they could happily f*ck over an opponent that was unaware of what was going on.
Unfortunately, the four sea urchin warriors that Song Shuhang was fighting against weren't pushovers. Their eyes were bloodshot, and they had lost their ability to reason. Therefore, they weren't using any sophisticated strategy while fighting.
Just as the sea urchin warrior to the rightmost side saw Song Shuhang slashing at him, he disregarded his safety and used his chest to block the Flaming Saber Technique. Afterward, he stretched out his hand and tried to grab the treasured saber Broken Tyrant. It wanted to give its three companions the possibility of counter-attacking.
"They have the same fighting style as real sea urchin warriors," Song Shuhang muttered to himself. He wasn't even a little bit scared while facing these sea urchin warriors ready to throw away their lives in order to take him down.
Song Shuhang's eyes lit up and recorded each and every action of the sea urchin warriors. At the same time, a strange feeling welled up in his heart... in his eyes, the actions of the four sea urchin warrior were slow and riddled with flaws.
"These guys are actually so slow... moreover, they are making so many unnecessary movements while fighting.
If they plan to rely on their basic speed and not on some footwork... let alone these four, even if ten sea urchin warriors were surrounding me, they wouldn't be able to injure me!"
When Song Shuhang borrowed Young Master Phoenix Slayer's CPU to increase his comprehension of martial techniques back then, he obtained a large amount of basic knowledge as well. As if that wasn't enough, he constantly fought against the hundred giants during the past two days.
As a consequence, his eyesight and fighting experience had increased by leaps and bounds without him even noticing.
While facing these sea urchin warriors that were ready to throw away their lives in order to take him down, Song Shuhang decided to activate the Green Breeze Speed Boost.
"Green Breeze Speed Boost!"
A green wind started to circle around his body, increasing his speed quite a bit.
Next, saber light flashed through the surrounding area.
The sea urchin warrior to the rightmost side wasn't even able to grab the saber when he was shrouded in flames and burned to ashes.
Afterward, Song Shuhang lightly spun his wrist and used the Inverted Scale Saber TechniqueDragon Dance Style before the other three sea urchin warriors could launch their attacks.
The saber qi turned into a dragon that spiraled in the air as though it was dancing.
"Ding, ding, ding!"
The Dragon Dance Style completely blocked the attacks of the three sea urchin warriors. In addition, they reeled backward due to the power of the saber qi, retreating again and again.
After making the three sea urchin warriors retreat, Song Shuhang didn't seize the opportunity to attack them. Instead, he relied on the speed the 'Green Breeze Speed Boost' granted him and dashed toward the depths of the ancient grave, not wasting time fighting the three sea urchin warriors.
The speed of the Green Breeze Speed Boost coupled with the Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk was more than enough to leave the three sea urchin warriors in the dust.
After Song Shuhang advanced for another fifty meters, he discovered that there was an additional group of sea urchin warriors blocking his path.
This time, there were ten of them. They had sinister expressions on their faces and were stubbornly staring at Song Shuhang with their bloodshot eyes.
"Roar~" Song Shuhang opened his mouth and roared. He used the Roaring Lion's Technique in conjunction with the innate skill of his Mouth Aperture, the 'Illusory Sound'. After hearing the roar, the bodies of the ten sea urchin warriors stiffened. They had been affected by the roar of the lion.
Song Shuhang seized the opportunity and jumped, leaping over the heads of the ten sea urchin warriors. Since the effects of the Green Breeze Speed Boost had yet to disappear, he kept running about madly through the passageway.
Just like that, Song Shuhang relied on the 'Illusory Sound' + Roaring Lion's Technique combo, as well as the speed-increasing effects of the Green Breeze Speed Boost and Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk techniques, to get past five waves of sea urchin warriors.
By the time he encountered the sixth wave, the number of sea urchin warriors in the wave had already reached twenty. There were simply too many of them, and he couldn't leap over them as he did before.
Moreover, the effects of the Green Breeze Speed Boost had disappeared as well.
"It seems I'll have to fight them head on..." Song Shuhang said.
Even if they were brain-dead and could only rely on their instinct to fight, being incapable of using footwork, cultivation techniques, and martial skills, twenty sea urchin warriors in the initial phase of the Second Stage Realm were rather difficult to deal with.
Thereupon, Song Shuhang put his hand in his pocket. He was planning to use a sword talisman to take care of this group of sea urchin warriors.
Just as Song Shuhang was preparing to fight the group of sea urchin warriors head-on, a roar was transmitted from behind.
The five waves of sea urchin warriors that he had left behind earlier had now gathered together, changing into an army of sea urchin warriors that was dashing about madly toward him.
"..." Song Shuhang lamented, "They all ran until here, sigh... couldn't they have obediently stayed where they were after I leapt over them?"
Therefore, Shuhang made up his mind and immediately took out the sword talisman, activating it!
But just as he activated the sword talisman... the sword talisman misfired, and no sword qi burst forth.
"What's happening? Did I end up with one of Senior Seven Lives Talisman defective products?" Song Shuhang immediately picked up another sword talisman and activated it.
However, the second sword talisman also misfired.
If the problem doesn't lie with the sword talismans... is it possible that the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue is the real culprit?
Song Shuhang's guess was correct.
A long, long time ago, there was a certain fellow daoist called Thrice Reckless Mad Saber that brought a powerful talisman together with him when he went to explore the grave of True Monarch Fifth Cultivator of True Virtue. As coincidence would have it, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber ended up using the powerful talisman... as a result, he almost made the 'grave of True Monarch Fifth Cultivator of True Virtue' explode and nearly killed himself in the process.
Thereupon, there were many formations inside the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue that restricted the use of talismans.
Song Shuhang had no choice but to put the sword talismans away and tightly grab the treasured saber Broken Tyrant. "Had I known earlier that all of this would happen, I would have directly killed each wave of sea urchin warriors when I met them..."
However, it was too late to cry over spilled milk.
The army of sea urchin warriors roared and madly pounced toward him. Their claws, teeth, needles... each part of their body was a powerful weapon.
Inverted Scale Saber TechniqueDragon Scale Style!
The saber qi turned into dragon scales that tightly wrapped Song Shuhang, protecting him.
Although there was a large number of sea urchin warriors, only a few of them could attack Song Shuhang at the same time. The Dragon Scale Style completely blocked their attacks.
At the same time, Song Shuhang started his counterattack.
The 'Basic Buddhist Fist Technique', the 'Flaming Saber Technique', the 'Roaring Lion's Technique', and the 'Steel Hands Technique' that he had studied yesterday, gaining some superficial knowledge, burst forth all together.
After a hard battle, Song Shuhang was finally able to get rid of the group of sea urchin warriors.
The group of sea urchin warriors was in an unusual state. They had bloodshot eyes and didn't even bother cooperating with each other, fighting only by relying on their instincts. Although they had reached the Second Stage Realm, their real fighting capacity was only comparable to that of a cultivator of the First Stage with three or four apertures opened.
As a consequence, Song Shuhang managed to exterminate them even though the opposite party had way superior numbers.
After their deaths, the corpses of the sea urchin warriors didn't stay behind. They turned into fire and lightning and soared into the sky, merging with the fire and lightning existing in the passage.
Song Shuhang raised his head and looked upward, toward the fire and lightning above his head. As expected, those sea urchin warriors weren't living creatures, but something that the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue created...
But why did the grave create these sea urchin warriors and made me fight them? What was the meaning behind it?
Forget it. There is no need to think too much about it. I need to traverse the seventh road and reach the depths of the ancient grave first... maybe I'll find the answer there.
After thinking this much, Song Shuhang kept advancing along the seventh road, heading toward the depths of the ancient grave.
This time, Song Shuhang didn't use tricks and immediately got rid of the next waves of sea urchin warriors as soon as he encountered them.
Just like the others, Song Shuhang also reached the chamber tomb of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue's grave after taking care of ten waves of sea urchin warriors.
The huge chamber tomb was very simple and without decorations. There was also a golden coffin in the center.
Just as he entered the chamber tomb... Song Shuhang noticed that the amount of true qi inside his body suddenly increased.
Is this a trap?
No, it doesn't seem a trap... it should be the reward for getting past the seventh road!
But the timing of this reward is truly horrible!
Song Shuhang's heart was in pain. During the past two days, he went through many hardships and was able to strengthen his constitution by a notch after experiencing the Mount Tai Seal and battling against the hundred giants. Thanks to that, his Sea of Qi Dantian wasn't swelled and on the verge of exploding anymore.
But little did he expect that he would have a fortuitous encounter that would make his true qi increase soon after getting rid of the calamity. His Sea of Qi Dantian had swelled and become a little painful. Moreover, he felt once more as if he could explode at any time.
"Painful, painful, painful... I feel as if I'm about to explode... I won't die here, right?"
Just as Song Shuhang was in deep thoughts, the golden coffin in the center of the chamber tomb opened.
A mummy-like figure drilled out of the coffin and floated until arriving next to Song Shuhang.
As soon as the mummy started to hover midair, Song Shuhang felt as though his body had been immobilized. He couldn't move any part of his body except for his eyeballs.
After floating next to Song Shuhang, the mummy stretched out its hand and opened his eyelids, checking his eyeballs. Then, it checked his nose and mouth. Afterward, it forcefully opened his mouth and checked his tongue.
After examining Song Shuhang's five sensory organs, the mummy grabbed his palms and checked the lines above.
After checking the lines of his hands, it placed Song Shuhang on the ground and grabbed his legs, taking off his shoes and glancing at the lines on his soles.
Song Shuhang felt that his current posture was rather embarrassing, almost making him wish he could die.
After inspecting Song Shuhang's soles, the mummy sighed with emotion and said, "Your legs aren't bad... unfortunately, you are a man."
"..." Song Shuhang.
If I were a woman, I would have already sued you for sexual harassment! Aaaah!
After placing Song Shuhang's legs down, the mummy floated toward the golden coffin and took out a turtle shell, squeezing eight copper coins inside. Afterward, it changed the information about Song Shuhang's facial structure, palm lines, and sole lines into runes, likewise squeezing them inside the turtle shell.
The turtle shell started to shake and spun several times before throwing out the various copper coins.
After falling to the ground, the eighth copper coins orderly disposed themselves into two rows of four coins each.
It was a rather strange divination.
The mummy stared at the result of the divination for quite a while. Then, it stretched out its hand and started to count on its fingers.
After a good while, it floated next to Song Shuhang once more and said, "Youth, although you are a man, the structure of your bones left a deep impression on me. Moreover, the shape of your legs isn't bad, either..."
"..." Song Shuhang.
"Cough, I'm not sure how to explain it... but I wasn't able to properly calculate the fate between us. Half of the divination implies that there is a very strong fate between us; the other half implies that there is no fate at all. I have no idea how to interpret such a weird divination," the mummy said.
"..." Song Shuhang.
Are divinations and the sort even reliable?
As soon as the word 'divination' was mentioned, Song Shuhang immediately thought of Immortal Master Copper Trigram from the Nine Provinces Number One Group... it was common knowledge in the group that one had to take for good the exact opposite of what Immortal Master Copper Trigram had predicted. But what would one do if Immortal Master Copper Trigram got two contradictory answers from the divination? What was the 'opposite' in that case? It was a rather interesting topic.
The mummy continued with its speech. "How about this... since the shape of your legs was pretty good, do you want to sign a contract with me and become the Eighth Cultivator of True Virtue?"
You don't really have to give so much face to my legs! Song Shuhang ridiculed in his heart.
Anyway, as soon as the mummy said those words, Song Shuhang immediately took notice of the following words: 'Eighth Cultivator of True Virtue'.
Signing a contract and becoming the Eighth Cultivator of True Virtue?
What does that mean?
Many things started to resurface in Song Shuhang's mind.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had a lion-shaped clone called Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue . The seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group once explored the grave of True Monarch Fifth Cultivator of True Virtue. At this time, he and the others were exploring the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue...
Song Shuhang immediately thought of a possibility.
Is it possible that Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue, Fifth Cultivator of True Virtue, Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue, and Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue all signed a contract with someone and became the XXX Cultivator of True Virtue?
If I sign the contract... will I become the Eighth Cultivator of True Virtue...?
Such being the case, why did the jade white lion Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue become Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's clone?
Right at this time, the mummy stretched out its hand and grabbed the bandages on its arm, starting to take them off.
Then, just as silk that was being spun from a cocoon, all the bandages wrapping the body of the body of the mummy came down, revealing its true body.
Beneath the thick bandages was an elegant woman.
The woman was wearing a light green skirt. Her light green skirt had butterflies embroidered above and was slit until the thighs; it was both sexy and elegant. The butterflies could even move around, and it felt as though they were dancing on the skirt while flapping their wings.
The woman had long golden hair that resembled a mass of golden threads, shining to the point of the being dazzling. Her eyebrows and eyelashes were also golden.
After she opened her eyes, Song Shuhang noticed that her pupils were also golden.
It took Song Shuhang only a glance to recognize who she was. It was the same golden-haired woman that had defeated a total of fourteen Golden Core Spiritual Emperors belonging to both the Limitless Demon Sect and Loose Cultivator Qian Yan's team with just one move back then.
"You are Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue?" Song Shuhang called out. Just as the golden-haired woman finished taking off the bandages, the immobilizing technique affecting his body also disappeared.
Is this woman really Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue?
But she is alive and kicking! Song Shuhang could sense powerful fluctuations of life energy emitted from her body. She wasn't a puppet, a zombie, a resentful ghost, or anything of the sort.
But why did she build the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue and bury herself in the golden coffin if she's still alive?
Is it possible that it's a hobby of hers?
"Yes, I'm indeed Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue," the golden-haired woman said indifferently. "But although I had reached the Venerable Realm once, my current strength is limited to the Sixth Stage True Monarch Realm.
Kid, what do you think? Do you want to sign a contract with me and become the Eighth Cultivator of True Virtue?"
In the neighboring symmetrical chamber tomb, Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue asked Chu Chu the same question...
