The effects of Song Shuhang ‘dreamland skill’ were truly astounding. While dreaming of someone’s life, he would experience everything they were experiencing and learn from that.
The last time, while he was dreaming of the life of a several hundred years old green onion sprout, he learned to perfection how to stay still from dawn to dusk, exposed to the wind and the sun all day.
Now that he had turned into ‘Cave Lord Dragon’, he was experiencing everything Cave Lord Dragon was experiencing, this sudden enlightenment included.
Anyway, this skill was almost identical to the extraordinary skills granted to all those that had eaten the seeds of the Virtuous Golden Lotus. The seeds of the Sinful Black Lotus likewise had the capacity to bestow a ‘demonic technique’ to the demons of the Netherworld Realm.
After a short moment, Cave Lord Dragon finished comprehending the demonic technique that the seed of the Sinful Black Lotus had bestowed upon it.
After accepting the imparting of the technique, Cave Lord Dragon understood how to use this ‘demonic technique’ it had learned. This demonic technique was based on the principle of absorption and rebound.
It seemed like a very cool demonic technique. The user could absorb all the magical techniques heading toward it and bounce them back.
It sounded truly cool.
However, there were some limitations to the absorption ability of the ‘demonic technique’. Cave Lord Dragon had to swallow down the incoming magical technique, and then use its mouth to fire it back at the enemy.
For example, if someone used a fireball against Cave Lord Dragon, it could activate its demonic technique and swallow it down, and then use its mouth to fire it back at the enemy.
As such, if the user of this technique had a small mouth, they would have suffered a great loss. Luckily, Cave Lord Dragon’s mouth was big enough.
Aside from the mouth of the user, the ‘demonic technique’ was also limited by the type of magical technique.
If it was an attack of pure spiritual energy like a fireball, tornado, water blast, or lightning attack… Cave Lord Dragon could eat it and send it back just fine.
But if the opposing magical technique had the capacity to summon a meteoriteor unleash any other type of ‘indirect attack’Cave Lord Dragon’s demonic technique was somewhat useless. After all, it would be unable to swallow down a meteorite and then send it back.
This apparently very powerful ‘demonic technique’ was actually quite weak due to these two limitations.
Song Shuhang felt that one could call this demonic technique, ‘strong teeth and good appetite’. If one didn’t have a set of powerful teeth, they would be unable to make good use of this demonic technique.
Song Shuhang silently observed two seconds of silence for Cave Lord Dragon.
Anyway, it was rather unfortunate that this ‘demonic technique’ was different from cultivation techniques. In fact, it was almost identical to the extraordinary skills that one would obtain after eating the seeds of the Virtuous Golden Lotus.
After he had been cast as Cave Lord Dragon, Song Shuhang comprehended the principle behind the ‘strong teeth and good appetite’ demonic technique, and came to understand a few things.
However, he would be still unable to display the ‘strong teeth and good appetite’ demonic technique after waking up due to him not having the assistance of the seed of the Sinful Black Lotus.
The seed of the Sinful Black Lotus was the catalyst that allowed one to display the demonic technique. After eating the lotus seed, Cave Lord Dragon’s teeth underwent some kind of change and became more powerful, which allowed him to directly eat magical techniques and fire them back at his enemies.
Since he didn’t have the seed of the Sinful Black Lotus at hand to help him strengthen his teeth and stomach, Song Shuhang didn’t dare to carelessly swallow down magical techniques even if he knew the principle behind the demonic technique.
The best he could do was to create a similar ‘magical technique’ that was based on the principles behind this demonic technique.
Anyway, this Sinful Black Lotus looks very similar to the Virtuous Golden Lotus of the scholarly faction! In addition, the scholars were collecting the corpses of the demons of the Netherworld… can there really be such a coincidence?Song Shuhang thought to himself.
Song Shuhang opened his eyes, and finally regained consciousness.
Since he had entered the ‘dreamland’, he was able to sleep very well this time around.
He didn’t have to worry about getting awakened right in the middle of the night due to his mental energy fluctuating and hammering his head.
After waking up, Song Shuhang discovered that he was still lying face-down next to the broken table, with drool flowing out of his mouth.
As for the Righteous Body Tempering Poem he had written until collapsing from exhaustion yesterday, it had disappeared without traces… which was actually a good thing. It meant that the Righteous Body Tempering Poem he had written yesterday for the first time was completely correct!
Only if the Righteous Body Tempering Poem was written down in the correct way would it transform into a burst of powerful righteous energy and flow back to Song Shuhang’s body, greatly strengthening his constitution.
Song Shuhang laughed, and got up.
“Eh?” While he was getting up, Song Shuhang felt that his body was as light as a swallow. When he gently pushed his palms against the ground, he felt as though he was going to float.
This feeling was very comfortable. Song Shuhang knew that it was just a misconception born from the fact that his constitution had greatly strengthened overnight.
The benefits he had gotten after practicing the Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha yesterday had been truly incredible.
Song Shuhang put away the ‘Heaven and Earth Worshipping Brush’, and jumped around in the room, practicing one round of the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique while he was at it.
He felt very relaxed at this time.
In addition, while he was practicing, Song Shuhang discovered that pale ‘moonlight’ had surfaced on his body. From the looks of it, his constitution had strengthened by a notch again.
Beyond that, while he was using the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique, the color of his fists and arms had changed into the color of steel… it was a sign that his body tempering technique, the Steel Hands Technique, had reached the master level!
Now, he could use his bare fists to welcome swords and spears, and his arms had enough the strength to wrestle with a dragon. If he was thrown into an ancient forging sect, he would surely become an excellent blacksmith.
In addition, although the mental energy between his eyebrows would still pulsate from time to time and affect his mind, the pain had decreased, and was now comparable to that of a person hitting his head.
This degree of pain was unable to have any influence on Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang secretly clenched his fists. “Now that I have the Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha, I’ll drink a little bit of demodragon medicine tonight and spin another cocoon. Within a week at most, I’ll increase the strength of my constitution until it is comparable to the intensity of my mental energy!”
At that time, he would no longer have to worry about his mental energy burdening his body too much.
Song Shuhang’s mood changed for the better.
But right at this time, the door of Song Shuhang’s room was pushed open.
The person that opened the door was Fairy Lychee.
Today, Fairy Lychee was wearing a scholarly robe. She looked rather striking while dressed up as a man.
A certain idea suddenly resurfaced in Song Shuhang’s mind. If Fairy Lychee were to change her robe into a daoist one and wear a daoist cap… wouldn’t she look even more amusing?
After opening the door, Fairy Lychee laughed, and said, “Shuhang, my daughter hasn’t shown herself yet?”
Song Shuhang shook his head, and said, “Senior Sister Ye Si doesn’t seem to have the intention to come out just yet. I’ve also got no idea what’s happening… perhaps she will automatically come out after a while?”
“Ah, sigh~ I accepted an adopted daughter with great difficulty, and I wasn’t even able to properly show her my love that she was monopolized by you.” Fairy Lychee’s tone really looked like that of an aunt while speaking.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Fairy Lychee sized up Song Shuhang, and said, “Eh? Little friend Shuhang, did your constitution strengthen again?”
“Yesterday, I was practicing the Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha, and the intensity of my constitution increased by a small realm,” Song Shuhang said with a nod.
“Not bad, not bad. You have good prospects. You indeed match to become the master of my dear adopted daughter.” Fairy Lychee smiled smugly and waved her hand at Song Shuhang.
After Song Shuhang took a few steps forward, she took out her mobile phone and took several selfies of the two of them.
One couldn’t expect any less from Fairy Lychee. She always made the best use of her time and seized every opportunity to take selfies.
“Let’s go. Senior White has already finished manufacturing the necessary disposable flying swords, and is now distributing them.” Fairy Lychee put away her mobile phone, and unconsciously stretched out her hand, rubbing Song Shuhang’s head.
Due to Ye Si casually signing a contract with Song Shuhang, that ‘warm and familiar’ feeling that Fairy Lychee felt earlier had now been passed onto Song Shuhang.
While looking at Song Shuhang, Fairy Lychee wouldfrom time to timefeel that warm and familiar feeling, just as though the two of them were blood relatives and had an unbreakable bond.
This feeling made Fairy Lychee feel a piercing pain in her liver.
Song Shuhang followed Fairy Lychee and arrived at the place the White Cloud Academy had arranged for Venerable White.
Venerable White’s residence was clearly different from those of the other fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group. If the residences of the other fellow daoists were the same as an ordinary hotel room, Venerable White’s residence was more like a luxurious mansion. The White Cloud Academy had made up its mind and decided to provide their best food and wine to Venerable White. They were treating him like an ‘auspicious golden baby’ in the hopes that he would bring them good luck during the battle against the demons of the Netherworld Realm.
At this time, in the backyard.
Song Shuhang entered the yard, and saw that the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group were already gathered there, talking about either the ‘enlightenment’ from yesterday or the secret technique they had obtained.
After seeing that Song Shuhang was coming over, the far-off Venerable White threw a wooden box toward him. “Shuhang, take this disposable flying sword 005 edition. I set the destination as the location of my holiday residence where we shot the movie earlier. If you are in danger, this disposable flying sword 005 edition will bring you away. In addition, I’ve added a piece of monster willow wood to each disposable flying sword to increase their flying speed by a notch. Even a Venerable won’t have an easy time catching you.”
“Monster willow wood?” Song Shuhang immediately turned his head around and looked at the pot next to Venerable White.
At this time, part of Qing Wu’s branches was gone. Needless to say, that ‘monster willow wood’ was something produced from Qing Wu’s body.
One couldn’t help but give her their heartfelt blessings. Hopefully, she, too, would learn something akin to Lady Onion’s ‘green onion unsheathing’ skill in order to grow back her broken branches.
Otherwise, it was unknown for how long would her tree branches last with Venerable White’s demand.
After Song Shuhang, Yu Jiaojiao and True Monarch Tyrant Flood Dragon, Su Clan’s Seven and Su Clan’s Sixteen, True Monarch Ancient Lake Temple, and so on… Fellow daoists arrived in the small courtyard.
Venerable White gave a disposable flying sword 005 edition to each of them.
After all the fellow daoists had gathered there, True Monarch Yellow Mountain also made his appearance.
Yellow Mountain had arrived at the White Cloud Academy yesterday night. Actually, he could have arrived even earlier, but he met a few demons of the Netherworld along the way that were scouting the area. As such, he wasted some time while dealing with them.
