Whenever Song Shuhang used the mysterious appraisal technique he'd recently obtained, the price he had to pay in order to appraise an item depended on the rank of the item itself.
Such being the case, the price for appraising myself shouldn't be too high, right?
After all, I have a rather good understanding of myself already. The only thing I need to find out at this time is a way to solve the problem related to my mental energy...
I should give it a try, perhaps it might really work!
Song Shuhang wasn't someone that gave up easily. Once he had made up his mind and decided to do something, he would find a way to complete the task.
"What are you thinking about?" Senior Sister Ye, who was leaning against Song Shuhang's shoulder, curiously asked after noticing Song Shuhang's expression.
Thereupon, Song Shuhang told Senior Sister Ye about the idea he had just now.
"Your appraisal technique can appraise something like that too? That's already something beyond a simple 'appraisal'!"
After pondering for a moment, Senior Sister Ye nodded and said, "If you really want to give it a try, I'll watch over you. However, let me prepare a formation first."
"What kind of formation?" Song Shuhang asked.
Senior Sister Ye replied, "A small healing formation. If you stand inside the formation, the pain caused by the wounds opening on your body will be reduced, and the recovery will also be accelerated. In addition, it can strengthen the effects of my healing technique by two times. Thanks to all this, I can immediately help you if your appraisal technique were to suddenly go out of control."
She was also very curious about the effects of the mysterious appraisal technique Song Shuhang mentioned.
Was it possible that the mysterious appraisal technique Song Shuhang obtained was somehow related to the 'Great Way'?
Senior Sister Ye moved the various books to one side, creating some empty space within the ocean of books. Afterward, she used a sword as a brush and engraved a simple formation on the ground.
Song Shuhang prepared himself and stood inside the formation.
Then, he took the gloves off his hands.
After taking a deep breath, he finally placed his hands on his chest.
The appraisal technique didn't activate on its own.
Thereupon, Song Shuhang started to recall those 88,888 voices. Whenever he slept or rested during the past few days, the 80,000+ voices would continuously reverberate in his head.
Song Shuhang's current understanding of the secret appraisal technique was much better than when he'd just obtained it.
Just as he recalled the 88,888 voices, Song Shuhang started to mutter to himself, "I want to find a way to solve the problem of my body having too much mental energy. I only need information about this matter and nothing else!"
Five breaths later.
It's coming! I can feel it!
It was the feeling of the appraisal technique activating!
However, no wounds appeared on Song Shuhang's body.
It was a rather strange occurrence. After all, previously, wounds had appeared on his arm even though he'd appraised just a small pebble. Such being the case, for what reason nothing happened this time?
Is it possible that I don't have any value?
Am I less valuable than even a rock?
Or perhaps... I don't need to pay any price to appraise myself?
"No wounds appeared this time? Or do you still have to activate the secret appraisal technique?" Senior Sister Ye asked curiously.
Song Shuhang replied, "The appraisal technique was already successfully activated but, strangely enough, no wounds appeared. Is it possible that I don't need to pay any price while appraising myself?"
But just as he finished his sentence, Song Shuhang's face twisted.
Pain, pain, pain!
It wasn't that there was no price to pay... the price was just delayed!
The delayed pain turned out to be especially strong.
The strange thing was that although Song Shuhang felt an extreme pain all over the body, no wounds appeared.
Things were so strange that Song Shuhang couldn't even point out from which part of the body the pain was coming from. He just felt a stabbing pain all over the body!
Senior Sister Ye quickly asked, "Are you hurt somewhere?"
At the same time, she used her healing technique on Song Shuhang's body.
With the help of Senior Sister Ye's healing technique, Song Shuhang recovered a bit and said slowly, "I should be hurt somewhere... but the problem is that I don't know where!"
There wasn't a single place on his body that wasn't hurting. But when he glanced at his hands, feet, and chest, he didn't see any wound.
Aside from that, no runes flashed through his eyes, either!
Did the appraisal technique fail?
"You also don't know where you were hurt? Your injury this time is rather strange," Senior Sister Ye said. Her delicate hands were still emitting the radiance of the healing technique as she touched Song Shuhang's body, trying to check up his wounds.
But after giving his whole body a rough check-up, she was unable to find any wound. There was no trace of bloodstains on Song Shuhang's body.
Fairy Ye Si furrowed her brows and said, "It's very strange... Shuhang, take off your clothes and let me take a careful look."
Song Shuhang was somewhat embarrassed at this time.
"Why are you acting all shy now! Aren't we supposed to become partners?" Senior Sister Ye said.
"I'm not acting shy! It's just that I'm not used to it!" Song Shuhang started to take off his clothes and left only his shorts on.
Senior Sister Ye gave Song Shuhang's body another check-up.
But as before, she didn't find any wound!
"I'm back! Fellow Daoist Shuhang, Senior Sister Ye, I've found a room with a kitchen and all kinds of ingredients inside. We can finally eat a different meal this afternoon, and the effects of the fasting pills just happened to be almost over." Miss Chu Chu barged into the library in high spirits.
But in the next moment, she ran out of the room at a speed three times faster than the one she used to enter, saying, "Excuse me, I didn't see anything. Fellow Daoist Shuhang, Senior Sister Ye, you can keep doing what you were doing. I won't be back before tomorrow noon so as to avoid disturbing you two. Bye!"
I wish Fellow Daoist Shuhang and Senior Sister Ye good luck! I really hope they can have a cute baby!
Song Shuhang stretched out his hand and called out, "Fellow Daoist Chu Chu, don't go! It's not what you think! It's a misunderstanding!"
But Miss Chu Chu had already disappeared without any trace~
"Hehe." Senior Sister Ye gently laughed. Her hand was still emitting the radiance of the healing technique and covering Song Shuhang's body. "As before, I didn't find any injury. Is it possible that the pain is only a misconception in your mind?"
"A misconception in my mind? No, impossible. At this time, my whole body is in extreme pain. It's absolutely not a misconception," Song Shuhang replied.
Senior Sister Ye said, "In that case, is the wound in that place I have yet to inspect..."
"That shouldn't be the case" Song Shuhang said. But just as he was halfway through his speech, a violent wave of pain suddenly attacked his body.
The pain already surpassed the amount Song Shuhang could currently withstand!
It was thousands of times more painful than the time he was hugged to death in the dreamland while experiencing Chu Chu's life. Song Shuhang felt as though someone had thrown a steamroller on his body and had rolled over him a few times.
And yet, there was absolutely no injury on his body.
Just what the hell was happening...
But just at this time, pieces of information started to appear in his mind. This information was related to his body!
The appraisal technique hadn't failed.
Name: Song Shuhang.
Height: 182 cm.
Address: Wenzhou City's Baijing Street.
Cultivation realm: Second Stage Third Dantian 'Dragon Claw Dantian' Realm.
Attribute: Lightning and fire.
Practices the following techniques: Basic Buddhist Fist Technique, Immovable Body of the Buddha, True Self Meditation Scripture, Holy Light Sword Technique, Inverted Scale Saber Technique, Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique, Roaring Lion's Technique, Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk, Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique, Huge Whale Chapter, Whale Swallowing Technique, Steel Hands Technique.
Magical techniques: Lightning Palm, Battery Charging Technique, Fire Controlling Art, Hair Growing Technique.
Dao name: One week, seven dao names.
Song Shuhang already knew about all this information.
Aside from his height, which had increased by 2 centimeters, and Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven 'Flaming Saber Technique' changing to Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique, there was no other change.
Without even noticing, I got to learn so many cultivation techniques?
Just as he was pondering, the information being transmitted to his brain stopped.
Just like that?
I suffered so much just to obtain this much information?
I already know about all this! Why was the price I had to pay so high?
Is this case similar to that of fortune tellers who can calculate the fate of other people but not theirs, and have to pay an incredibly high price if they try to predict their own fate?
But I didn't obtain anything even after suffering all that pain!
What a scam!
But right at this time, other pieces of information were transmitted to Song Shuhang's mind. It was the follow-up part of the secret appraisal technique.
The current state of the body is abnormal, and the quantity of mental energy is too high.
Recommendations to solve the problem:
1. Take medicine such as: demodragon medicine, tyrant body medicine, radiant pill.
2. Practice powerful body tempering cultivation techniques such as: Warring Buddha's True Body, Dragon King's Body, Blood Demon's Metamorphic Body.
3. Use seals such as: mental energy seal.
4. Cultivate the light of virtue: Use the Ksitigarbha's Soul Ferrying Scripture and so on techniques to lead to the right path 100,000 resentful souls. At that time, the light of virtue would undergo a qualitative change and strengthen both constitution and mental energy. The light of virtue can share the burden of the mental energy together with the constitution.
This was the information Song Shuhang was looking for!
Shuhang gently rubbed his temples. This time, the flow of information of the appraisal technique was truly over.
Afterward, another pair of soft hands pressed on his temples, rubbing them for him. Senior Sister Ye asked, "Was it effective?"
"Yes, the appraisal was successful." Song Shuhang sighed and told her about the information he'd obtained from the appraisal technique.
As for the medicine, he hadn't heard about any of them except for the 'demodragon medicine'. However, they shouldn't be much easier to obtain compared to the demodragon medicine.
If he could find the traces of a demodragon or some of its blood, he could cooperate with Scholar Xian Gong and obtain a little bit of the demodragon medicine from him.
As for the other several medicines, it was better not to think about them for now.
As for cultivation techniques... even in this case, he had only heard about the Warring Buddha's True Body. It was the signature skill of the Soul King 'Dharma King Creation'. Aside from losing all the hair after its activation, it didn't have any other shortcoming.
But if he wanted to practice this cultivation technique, he had to enter Dharma King Creation's sect, the Warring Buddha Sect. However, it wasn't something that the current Song Shuhang was willing to do, and even if he were to enter the sect, it would take him tens of years to learn it.
As for the other two body tempering techniques, they also had to be amongst the best of the best if they were mentioned together with the Warring Buddha's True Body. There was no way Song Shuhang could easily obtain them.
As for sealing his mental energy, Song Shuhang didn't want to do so unless it was truly necessary. Doing so was equivalent to binding one's hands and feet and didn't have any advantage to it.
Finally, that 'cultivate the light of virtue' made Song Shuhang's eyes lit up.
Some of you might still remember the western monk on the banks of Lake Daming, right?
No, wait a moment. That wasn't it... it was that cool western monk that was unjustly accused in the subway!
The body of the western monk was shrouded in thick 'light of virtue'. Compared to the others, the fourth point seemed much easier to accomplish.
To gather the 'light of virtue', one only needed to learn something like the Ksitigarbha's Soul Ferrying Scripture and lead to the right path the souls of the dead.
If Song Shuhang wanted to obtain such a technique, it wasn't really a problem. The problem was to lead to the right path 100,000 resentful souls...
Of course, it didn't mean that one had to lead to the right path exactly 100,000 resentful souls.
Powerful resentful souls such as ghost generals were equivalent to 10, 100, or even 1000 resentful souls.
Back then, Song Shuhang really envied the 'light of virtue' shrouding the body of the western monk and its body tempering effects. Therefore, he especially looked for info about the light of virtue back in those days.
"If I really can't get my hands on the demodragon medicine, perhaps I should really consider the light of virtue," Song Shuhang muttered to himself.
The best thing to do was to cultivate the light of virtue and keep looking for information about the demodragons.
If he could obtain the demodragon medicine, it would be the best outcome possible. But if he couldn't, he could just keep cultivating the light of virtue.
Just as he was in deep thoughts, a sharp transmitted to his body.
The sharp pain came to him in 'waves'... moreover, just like sea waves, each wave was stronger than the previous one!
For example, this wave of pain was ten times stronger than the previous one!
The previous wave of pain already surpassed the amount Song Shuhang could withstand, the current one surpassed that limit by ten times!
Song Shuhang felt as though each part of his body was flattened and destroyed. He felt as though his fingers, toes, and neck were continuously twisted and broken, over and over again!
Song Shuhang gritted his teeth and tried to endure. But after two seconds, he finally fell to the ground!
"Shuhang! Shuhang!" Senior Sister Ye called out in alarm. Although she continuously used the healing technique on Song Shuhang's body, it didn't have any effect.
Then, just as Song Shuhang fainted, an illusory figure drilled out of his back, just like a butterfly breaking out of a cocoon.
The illusory figure looked the same as Song Shuhang. The only difference was that the size of its body was around half of Shuhang's
Was his soul leaving his body?
Had our Song Shuhang really died?
"A ghost spirit?" Senior Sister Ye said at this time.
The illusory figure was precisely Song Shuhang's ghost spirit... the expression of the ghost spirit was currently twisted due to the pain.
There were two deep wounds that reached the bones on its bare back.
These two wounds were rather strange. It was possible to see the 'bones' of the ghost spirit inside the wound, but the rest of the space inside the wound was like a black hole, completely dark.
It seemed that the 'wounds' Song Shuhang received after appraising himself had been shifted onto the body of the ghost spirit.
"No wonder there was no improvement after I used the healing technique on his main body." Senior Sister Ye forced a smile. Afterward, she switched to a special type of healing technique that was designed specifically for ghost spirits.
The healing techniques used to cure humans and ghost spirits were different.
The radiance of the healing technique fell onto the body of the ghost spirit, and the black hole-like wounds on its back started to heal.
The painful expression of the ghost spirit also reduced a bit.
Very soon, the wounds healed.
Senior Sister Ye stopped using the healing technique.
But just as she stopped using the healing technique, the wounds on the back of the ghost spirit opened once more...
"Aaaaaaaah~" the ghost spirit called out pitifully.
"Aaaaaaaah~" the unconscious Song Shuhang also called out pitifully.
Senior Sister Ye's eye sockets immediately became red.
