None of those things was something that little friend Song Shuhang, who was just a cultivator of the Second Stage Realm at the time, should have had! I should find the opportunity to meet him again if possible,Pavilion Master Chu thought to herself.
In the meantime, Song Shuhang stored his wooden token of authority away.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer asked, “Shuhang, what happened to Miss Ye Si in the end?”
“No need to worry. She isn’t in danger,” Song Shuhang said. Due to Senior Sister Ye Si being a rather peculiar ghost spirit, he, too, was unable to determine whether they had truly formed a love contract.
It was almost noon.
Thanks to Venerable White and Fairy Lychee’s incredible acting skills, it took the crew only one morning to complete the shooting of the scenes related to the female ghost Ling’er.
Afterward, the members of Jacob’s Production Team started to pack the equipment and the stage props.
They were going to change locations and film the scene where the guardian beast of the sect, the ‘Heaven Devouring Cat’, would meet Ling Ye while running away after the destruction of the Immaterial Cloud Sect with the few surviving disciples.
They would head toward the ‘Mountain of Myriad Books’ to shoot this scene. As such, the members of Jacob’s Production Team were once again busy packing their stuff.
After packing all the equipment, the members of the movie crew started to enjoy their lunch.
After eating, they would take a break.
Although there were all sorts of liquefied pills and spirit tea leaves to strengthen their body and increase their stamina, the members of the movie crew still needed some breaks to relieve their mental exhaustion.
The cultivators of the Nine Provinces Number One Group also dispersed. They went either to rest or to look for something that interested them.
For example, a certain fellow daoist named Su Clan’s Seven headed toward the White Cloud Academy to look for a fight… well, that wasn’t entirely true. It was better to say that he went to look for a fellow daoist to compare notes with. According to what Seven had said, it had been many years since he had fought against a scholar. Therefore, how could he miss the opportunity now that he was in the territory of a scholarly influence such as the White Cloud Academy?
Young Master Phoenix Slayer took the wine barrel and likewise took his leave. Just as he was leaving, Doudou put on a tragic appearance and begged Song Shuhang for help again…
Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen stayed together. Shuhang told her about his experience when he spun the cocoon. In addition, he wanted to take advantage of the break after lunch to practice that saber technique he had gotten from Cave Lord Snow Wolf, the Strong Gale Saber. He felt that it might be something very suitable for him.
But right at this time, Venerable White and Fairy Lychee came over from afar.
Venerable White narrowed his eyes into a smile, waving his hand at Song Shuhang. “Shuhang, are you busy at noon?”
“I don’t have anything too important to do. Senior White, is something matter?” Song Shuhang asked. While speaking, he couldn’t help but glance at Fairy Lychee.
Fairy Lychee was still wearing the clothing of the female ghost Ling’er. While wearing this set of clothes, she had a rather unique flavor. However, Song Shuhang wasn’t glancing at her because she was charming, but due to the familiar and gentle aura coming from her body!
It was such a familiar and gentle aura… just like that of a mother.
“…” Song Shuhang. He immediately understood what was going on. Senior Sister Ye Si was probably influencing him!
Just as Song Shuhang was sizing up Fairy Lychee, Fairy Lychee was also glancing at him.
Likewise, she also felt a gentle and familiar aura coming from Song Shuhang’s body. This feeling was unconsciously making her feel like approaching Song Shuhang. She felt as though the two of them were related by blood, with their souls resonating.
Fairy Lychee knew this absurd feeling too well. Yesterday, when she met the female cultivator named Ye Si, she felt the same.
“…” Fairy Lychee.
Just what is happening?! Are they now taking turns?!
Was it possible that the strange feeling coming from Ye Si’s body was contagious? Was little friend Song Shuhang infected since he stayed in contact with her for too long?
If that was the case, wouldn’t all the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group get infected as well?
Just the thought alone was scary.
Venerable White replied, “Since there was a break from the shooting of the movie during that time, I wanted to seize the opportunity and bring you to the ‘White Cloud City’ inside the White Cloud Academy. I just received a call from True Monarch Eternal Fire. He informed me that their White Cloud City has quickly developed during the past few years and that it’s very lively now. Therefore, he invited me to take a look at the place.”
Song Shuhang pondered for a moment. He wasn’t in such a hurry to practice that saber technique. Therefore, he might as well go to the White Cloud City for a stroll. Since the White Cloud City was an important place within the White Cloud Academy, he could perhaps buy something good there.
“Sure, I don’t have anything important to do. Therefore we can go there together.” Song Shuhang turned toward Su Clan’s Sixteen, and asked, “Sixteen, do you want to tag along?”
“Sure,” Su Clan’s Sixteen said with a smile.
Just in this fashion, Venerable White showed the way and Sixteen, Song Shuhang, and Fairy Lychee followed while walking side by side.
Along the way, Fairy Lychee asked via secret sound transmission, “Little friend Shuhang… did you get a strange feeling when you looked at me today?”
“Yes, I did,” Song Shuhang replied via secret sound transmission.
Fairy Lychee continued, “As expected… that’s really troublesome. Now then, were you also infected by that Ye Si girl? Little friend Shuhang, I’m warning you. Don’t call me ‘mother’ in front of everyone. Otherwise, I’ll get very angry!”
“…” The corner of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched. “Didn’t you tell me just yesterday to treat you as my adoptive mother?”
“Adoptive mother and mother are two different concepts, do you understand?” Fairy Lychee clenched her teeth, and said, “If you really can’t help it like that Ye Si girl, you can call me adoptive mother, but you absolutely can’t call me ‘mother’!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
I have no intention of calling you adoptive mother nor mother!
Fairy Lychee deeply sighed. She really had no idea what was the relationship between her and that girl called Ye Si.
What was the deal with this absurd and warm feeling that made her feel as though they were related by blood?!
Fairy Lychee was really sad at this time.
But right at this time, while leading the way, Venerable White said, “We’ll have to ride a flying sword from now on. The White Cloud City is built above a high mountain. Fellow Daoist Lychee, I’ll carry Song Shuhang, and you’ll carry little friend Sixteen, is that fine?”
“No problem,” Fairy Lychee said.
Three minutes later, Fairy Lychee and Venerable White rode their flying swords and arrived at the entrance of the White Cloud City.
The whole White Cloud City was shrouded in a protective barrier that resembled a crystal, and the entrance was formed by two high towers that were acting as the front gate.
Fairy Lychee and Venerable White landed next to the high towers.
If they wanted to enter the White Cloud City, they still had to follow the procedures.
“Fellow Daoists, hello. May I ask if it’s your first time coming to the White Cloud City?” The middle-aged scholar that was guarding the main entrance welcomed them with a smile.
“Hmm, I came here more than 200 years ago, but this place has changed a lot since then. It’s pretty good now,” Venerable White said.
“Fellow Daoist, thank you for your praise.” The middle-aged scholar went through the formalities on their behalf. Then, he reminded, “Fellow Daoists, the number of flying swords allowed to fly today in our White Cloud City is limited. Therefore, I ask you to be a little careful so as to avoid giving rise to misunderstandings.”
