“Did you lock onto the coordinates of the monster willow?”
“Yes, I’ve been keeping an eye on her coordinates the whole time. Earlier, she moved for a short distance, but has been still since then. Her current location must be where the target is.”
“Just to be safe, we should send the vanguard to explore the place first while we take command from the back.”
“It’s a good idea, I agree.”
“Good, it’s settled then! The Netherworld will protect us and bless us with a successful raid!”
“The Netherworld will protect us!”
“The Netherworld will protect us!”
The six cave lords of the Mountain of Next Life happily decided their next course of action.
These were six cave lords of the Sixth Stage True Monarch rank, plus their elite subordinates; it was a force to be reckoned with!
At the location where the movie was being shot.
The preparations for the second scene of the second act had already started, and the shooting was going to start in a while.
The second scene would take place at the periphery of Venerable White’s holiday residence. There was a small mountain road there that was really suitable to shoot the scene of the main character Ling Ye getting ambushed by a pack of wild beasts while he was rushing toward the venue for Senior Sister Murong Hua’s wedding.
Venerable White, Cave Lord Snow Wolf, and his family headed toward the location of the shooting ahead of time so that they could familiarize themselves with the surrounding area and decide how to conduct the fight during the shooting.
Venerable White’s understanding of the shooting process was getting better and better.
Great Master Swallow Cloud, Yu Jiaojiao, Gao Moumou, and the others also headed toward the location of the second scene.
Nevertheless, Song Shuhang, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator, Scholar Drunken XXX, and the other seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group didn’t immediately head toward the shooting location of the next scene. At this time, they were all gathered outside the shooting location of the third scene of the second actthe place where Medicine Master and Riverly Purple Mist were going to get marriedwhile preparing to witness a good play.
“They are coming, they are coming,” Fairy Lychee said with a laugh. She was the first one to notice.
Soon after, Medicine Master and Riverly Purple Mist brought Thrice Reckless Mad Saber, who was tied up for good, out. At this time, several red-colored decorations used for joyful occasions were hanging from Thrice Reckless’ daoist robe.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer pushed his glasses up and asked, “Medicine Master, what’s this ‘good play’ you were referring to? It doesn’t seem as though Thrice Reckless Mad Saber is any different from before.”
“No need to be impatient. The medicine has just started to take effect. You’ll see changes very soon.” Medicine Master gently smiled and then looked at Scholar Drunken XXX, asking, “Scholar, do you have another set of that special rope?”
If they couldn’t remember his name, they could just refer to him as ‘Scholar’, but Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless was simply too self-confident and too much of a death-seeker to remember about this detail.
“Yes, I have several sets, actually. Brother Medicine Master, how long does the rope need to be?” Scholar Drunken XXX asked.
Riverly Purple Mist replied, “Hmm, a twenty or thirty meters long rope should be more than enough.”
Scholar Drunken XXX took a thirty meters long rope out of his clothes. As for why he was carrying all these ropes with him, no one knew.
“Thank you, Scholar.” Medicine Master faintly smiled and took the rope.
“You are welcome,” Scholar Drunken XXX said, then asked expectantly, “Brother Medicine Master do you remember my name?”
Earlier, when Thrice Reckless Mad Saber guessed his name wrong again and again, Scholar Drunken Moon didn’t seem to care and looked very calm. But now, it looked as though he was somewhat affected by it?
“Ahaha, don’t worry, Scholar. Fellow Daoist Northern River surely remembers your dao name. He wrote it on a small paper that he attached to one corner of his computer screen. Therefore, we can just ask Fellow Daoist Northern River about it.” Medicine Master quickly threw the hot potato at Northern River’s Loose Cultivator.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator faintly smiled and, full of confidence, said, “Scholar Drunken Moone, fear not. I can remember your name even without the help of a memo.”
Scholar Drunken Moon froze for an instant, then held Northern River’s Loose Cultivator’s hand, somewhat touched. “Old Northern River, you are truly a reliable person!”
“You are welcome, Drunken Moone.” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator faintly smiled. However, he was quite ashamed deep inside his heart.
After failing to correctly remember the name of the scholar even after he pasted that small note to the edge of the laptop, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator had a sudden flash of inspiration and thought of another method.
Since he couldn’t remember Scholar Drunken XXX’s real name, he might as well memorize an incorrect version of it!
As long as the pronunciation was the same, wouldn’t the final outcome be the same?
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator was proud of himself for being so clever.
In the end, he decided to settle on the name ‘Scholar Drunken Moone’, which sounded very similar to Scholar Drunken XXX’s real dao name.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator was able to memorize this incorrect version of the dao name immediately.
As for the original version of the name of the scholar, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator had no idea what it might be.
Was it Drunken Mown? Drunken Moan? Drugged Meme? Drugged Main? Or Drunkard Baboon?
After all, there were a lot of words that had similar pronunciation!
However, it didn’t matter. He just had to firmly keep in mind the dao name ‘Scholar Drunken Moone’ until the day Scholar Drunken XXX reached the Eighth Stage Profound Sage Realm.
After all, the two names sounded almost the same when read aloud!
Scholar Drunken Moon, who didn’t know the inside story of this matter, was almost moved to tears.
“Northern River unexpectedly managed to remember the name of the scholar? Is it possible that he read his name aloud for the past few days, repeating it hundreds of times and finally remembering it?” Young Master Phoenix Slayer said in a low voice to a nearby fellow daoist.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber mumbled, “Hmmmm!”Dammit, that was my plan! Northern River unexpectedly beat me to it!
True Monarch Fallout held his chin and said, “Why do I find the scene Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer described somewhat inappropriate?”
After hearing these words, Fairy Lychee’s eyes immediately lit up. Her imagination started to run wild as she said, “Hmm~ Northern River affectionately repeating the name of the scholar each day? No matter how I imagine this scene, it has a certain meaning to it.”
Fairy Dongfang Six added, “In addition, he repeated it hundreds of times each day. Hmm~”
Riverly Purple Mist continued, “Is it possible that Fellow Daoist Northern River used different intonations while repeating the name of the scholar? First quickly and then slowly, first gently and then smoothly?”
Su Clan’s Sixteen concluded, “Is this love?”
“” Song Shuhang.
F*ck, the gossiping power of fairy maidens can reach fearsome levelsjust like ordinary women when they are gathered together!
“” Scholar Drunken Moon.
“” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator.
It’s not like I can’t hear you if you speak in a low voice! Everyone here is a cultivator with excellent hearing, and everyone knows that! Since you are capable of using it, use the secret sound transmission!
And you, Miss Riverly Purple Mist, do you think I won’t flip the table?!()
Just now, I was helping your dear Medicine Master get out of the crisis that Scholar Drunken Moone’s name had given birth to!
Medicine Master was rather embarrassed at this time. After all, he was the one that threw the hot potato at Northern River’s Loose Cultivator.
Thereupon, he tried to help Northern River’s Loose Cultivator get out of this predicament. “Cough. Purple Mist, enough gossiping. Come here and help me tie Thrice Reckless up. The medicine is about to take effect!”
Riverly Purple Mist slightly lowered her eyes and obediently ran to Medicine Master’s side. Then, the duo tied the new rope to the one already tied to Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s feet. It almost felt as though they were tying a string to a balloon.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was confused and had no idea as to what was going on. But right at this time, he felt his body becoming hot.
“It has started,” Riverly Purple Mist said. Then, she tied a red cloth around Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s feet.
Medicine Master used one hand to grab the extremity of the rope and kept other in the air in front of Thrice Reckless. Afterward, he said, “Everyone, I’ll show you a magic trick now!”
The gazes of the various fellow daoists concentrated on Medicine Master and Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s bodies.
“Thrice Reckless Mad Saber, inflate!” Medicine Master said in a grave tone.
He really had the demeanor of a first-class magician at this time!
In the next moment, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s body started to quickly inflate, just as though someone had pumped air into him.
In the time it took to blink twice, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s body had already inflated to the point of becoming a huge ball. Then, he started to float as well!
Luckily, what he was wearing right now was the regulation daoist robe True Monarch Ancient Lake Temple had provided. Although this type of robe didn’t have any defensive ability, it could shrink and expand at will and was dustproof. Therefore, it didn’t burst open after his body inflated.
“Hmmm! Hmmm!” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was getting anxious. What was happening to his body? Which kind of scary medicine did Medicine Master give him? Why had his body inflated and turned into its current appearance?
“These are the effects of a manmade insect. I started to manufacture this insect when I was young and found the time to finish it just recently.” Medicine Master laughed and explained, “This insect is completely harmless to cultivators. The last time I tried to manufacture it, I was only a cultivator of the Second Stage Realm and very far from reaching the Fourth Stage Realm. Back then, I really envied cultivators of the Fourth Stage that could freely fly in the sky.”
Song Shuhang approved and said, “I can understand how Senior Medicine Master felt at that time. The blue sky is the weak spot of many men. Each man secretly dreams of soaring in the blue sky!”
“Yes, that’s exactly it,” Medicine Master said. “Since I was studying pill refining, I thought of realizing this dream in advance through the use of medicinal pills. I thought of refining floating pills, flying medicine, and so on that could allow me to fly in the sky but in the end, I failed, and what was left behind was a batch of half-finished products. Amongst them was this ‘ballon insect’ that I gave to Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless.”
After hearing the explanation, the various fellow daoists were clear as to what was going on. In short, these were the effects of one of Medicine Master’s half-finished products from the past. After being used on Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless’ body, it had finally served its purpose.
“Senior Medicine Master, for how long will the effects of this ‘balloon insect’ last?” Song Shuhang asked.
“With me controlling it, it can last indefinitely. But you don’t have to worry, since it won’t cause any harm to Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless’ body. Anyway, everyone will be able to witness a magnificent sight as soon as the ‘balloon insect’ is removed.” Medicine Master faintly smiled and continued, “During the shooting of the third scene of the second act in a while, we can use Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless to make the scene more lively.”
“” Song Shuhang.
You want to use him to make the scene more lively? I guess you can do that only by making him explode? Or by turning him into something akin to firecrackers?
In other words, will Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber explode once the ‘balloon insect’ is removed?
Impossible, Senior Medicine Master can’t be this cruel! However, since it will help to make the scene more lively it’s bound to have an effect similar to firecrackers, right?
Just as they were discussing, the balloon version Thrice Reckless Mad Saber had already reached the height of 25 meters, fluttering in the wind.
“Hmmm~” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber anxiously called out.
What a shameful display!
Had he known earlier, he would have angered Venerable White for good and gambled upon the possibility of getting sent away with a disposable flying sword!
After watching the scene of Thrice Reckless Mad Saber floating up in the sky, the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group headed toward the location of the second scene of the second act, where the battle between Cave Lord Snow Wolf & Family and Venerable White would take place.
But right at this time, Song Shuhang received a call from Senior Xian Gong.
“Little friend Shuhang, are you free? I’ve shifted all the traps I arranged next to Yu Jiaojiao’s villa over here. Therefore, can you come over and leave your aura behind? This time, we’ll surely catch the demodragon!” Scholar Xian Gong said resolutely.
