As soon as he heard True Monarch Eternal Fire’s words, Song Shuhang felt his legs become soft. Did True Monarch just tell Venerable White to head back at the quickest speed possible?
Not even Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber would seek death like this!
Thereupon, Song Shuhang said in a hurry, “Senior Eternal Fire, you don’t need to be so impatient. The method Senior ‘beep, beep, beep~’ taught me isn’t difficult to learn. I’ll show it to you once, and you will immediately learn it. As long as you learn this method, there is no need for me to go there with you two.”
While speaking, he concentrated his gaze on Venerable White.
What did he see? He saw that Venerable White had a delighted expression on his face as he was standing above his flying sword and hovering midair!
He was already ready to fly at his quickest speed! One had to remember that since the day Song Shuhang met Venerable White, he had yet to see him fly at full speed without holding anything back. In other words, the resulting speed would be something that Song Shuhang couldn’t even begin to fathom. Therefore, his acrophobia immediately flared up when he saw the enchanting smile on Venerable White’s face.
“There is no time, quickly get on the flying sword!” True Monarch Eternal Fire casually grabbed Song Shuhang, dragging him outside the house. Song Shuhang was just a small cultivator of the Third Stage, and he didn’t have the strength to resist True Monarch Eternal Fire. Thereupon, he was forcefully dragged onto Venerable White’s flying sword.
“Let’s go!” Venerable White stretched out his hand, pointing to the front.
The flying sword beneath his feet whizzed forward!
This speed was something that human language was unable to describe.
It had only been a second, yet Song Shuhang felt that… Eh? He didn’t feel anything!
How to accurately describe this situation?
Was it because the destination wasn’t too far, and the time it took them to travel there was too short? Senior White had used just one second to reach the destination!
Song Shuhang only felt that he whizzed forward just as if he had teleported. He’d simply lost touch with the concepts of time, altitude, and speed, and didn’t feel anything.
Is this like the saying, “things will develop in the opposite direction when they become extreme”, and speed stops becoming scary after it breaks through its limits?
Song Shuhang felt that he had barely escaped with his life this time!
In the future, if Senior White wants to race with his flying sword, should I ask him to fly at his quickest speed?
Just as this thought flashed through his mind, Song Shuhang leapt down from the flying sword.
But just as his feet touched the ground… his legs became soft, he felt nauseated, his heartbeat sped up, his muscles lost their strength, and other similar symptoms followed soon after.
Both the symptoms of carsickness and acrophobia were included in this collection.
“…” Song Shuhang.
He clearly wasn’t scared earlier, so how come his body was reacting so honestly now?
“Little friend Song Shuhang, are you okay?” True Monarch Eternal Fire asked Song Shuhang and forcefully propped him up. Actually, his legs were also somewhat soft, but he had to grit his teeth and keep up his image since he was in front of a junior.
“Ah… ugh… I feel like a pregnant woman. I really want to throw up,” Song Shuhang said while vomiting and using a nearby big tree as a support.
“Your analogy was truly something.” The corner of True Monarch Eternal Fire’s mouth twitched.
However, Venerable White faintly smiled, and said, “This is the periphery of the ‘world of the golden lotus’. Shuhang, you can teach Fellow Daoist Eternal Fire the method to leave a personal mark in the world of the golden lotus while we are here.”
Senior White was really satisfied after flying at high speed this time. Actually, he could have gone even faster if he’d wished to, reaching the destination in less than one second. However, he decided to give some consideration to Song Shuhang and True Monarch Eternal Fire.
“Okay, I understand,” Song Shuhang agreed.
After all, if he were to teach True Monarch Eternal Fire how to leave the mark while inside the world of the golden lotus, he himself would end up becoming the master of the world.
Therefore, the method had to be taught while they were outside the world of the golden lotus.
“The method to leave a personal mark in the world of the golden lotus isn’t anything complex. From what I can tell, it’s no different than a dance. One needs to revolve the true qi or spiritual energy inside their body according to a certain pattern while dancing to leave their mark in the world of the golden lotus. When Senior ‘beep, beep, beep~’ was dancing, he looked really handsome,” Song Shuhang said.
The nearby Venerable White held his chin and pondered. He already knew that this Senior ‘beep, beep, beep~’ that Song Shuhang was talking about had his same appearance. In other words, he would look really handsome if he were to dance according to his method?
After the barrier was set up, Song Shuhang displayed that dance that had the ability to leave behind a personal mark in the world of the golden lotus, which can be abbreviated to ‘marking dance’ from now on.
To tell the truth… Song Shuhang indeed looked quite pretty while dancing. After he joined the ranks of cultivators, Song Shuhang good looks increased by leaps and bounds.
While dancing, Song Shuhang’s hands used true qi to draw all sorts runes in the air.
While he was performing the ‘marking dance’, the onlookers felt as though streaks of dazzling light were being emitted from the palms of his hands, looking very pleasing to the eye.
All those that played games such as ‘Audition Online’ or ‘Flash Dance’ would find this scene somewhat familiar. In the games, the player would control a character and have them dance. Afterward, all sorts of lights would be emitted from their hands, making the dance even prettier.
At the same time, Song Shuhang’s feet swiftly moved according to various patterns. Sometimes the pattern was similar to modern ‘Melbourne Shuffle Dance’, other times to the ‘Ali Shuffle’, and other times again to the ‘Thomas Flair’ in break dance.
If not for the fact that Song Shuhang had become a cultivator, with superb coordination and excellent physique, he wouldn’t have been able to get right most of these steps.
After the dance, all the runes drawn in the air shone. At the same time, Song Shuhang’s body was covered with sweat.
“Good, I’ve finished,” Song Shuhang said.
“Clap, clap, clap!” Both Venerable White and True Monarch Eternal Fire clapped with great enthusiasm.
Song Shuhang asked, “That was all. Senior Eternal Fire, did you note everything down?”
True Monarch Eternal Fire nodded his head. There were several steps in this ‘marking dance’ that made him feel a great deal of shame.
If it was a female cultivator dancing, one could describe the scene as “pleasing to the eye and to the mind”… but if he was the one dancing, he felt that it would be quite weird!
“In that case, Senior Eternal Fire, I’ll leave to you the duty to protect the world of the golden lotus!” Song Shuhang gave the thumbs up.
After saying this much, he also added, “Senior White, Senior Eternal Fire. Since I’m done, I’ll go back to my place, goodbye!”
He had already passed the information and ‘marking dance’ he’d learned from Senior White Two to the scholarly faction, and there wasn’t anything else he could do to help them. Now, it would be up to the scholarly faction to protect the world of the golden lotus. It wasn’t something that a small cultivator of the Third Stage like Song Shuhang could interfere with.
In addition, he had just gotten his hands on this sack filled with the seeds of the Virtuous Golden Lotus. Therefore, he was planning to head back and see if he could upgrade his ‘Lotus Blossoming Tongue’ skill.
Who knew, perhaps his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill would undergo a mutation after upgrading several times!
As if that wasn’t enough, he also had to find the time to look for a few jokes on his way back. This time, he had to prepare a large stockpile of jokes in order to guard against unexpected accidents. In any case, his memory was currently very good, and it wouldn’t be a problem to memorize thousands of jokes all at once. Later, even if Senior White Two were to drag him into that infinite make-up test dimension again, he wouldn’t have to worry.
“Little friend Tyrannical Saber, wait a moment,” True Monarch Eternal Fire suddenly said at this time. Afterward, he stretched out his hand, holding Song Shuhang in place. “Since you are already here, why don’t you come inside to take a look? We are already close to the entrance of the world of the golden lotus. As such, why don’t you join the ceremony for the inauguration of the new world along with Fellow Daoist White?”
At this time, True Monarch Eternal Fire was following his ‘intuition’ to bring Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Saber to the world of the golden lotus. From a logical point of view, it was dangerous to bring Song Shuhang inside the world of the golden lotus. After all, he, too, knew the ‘marking dance’, and if he found an opportunity to perform the dance first, he would be able to leave his personal mark inside to become the owner of the new world of the scholarly faction.
But, for some unknown reason, True Monarch Eternal Fire had the hunch that it would wise to bring Fellow Daoist ‘Tyrannical Saber Song One’ inside the world of the golden lotus along with him.
This feeling he was getting was very strong.
The ‘intuition’ of cultivators was even sharper than the sixth sense of a woman, especially if it was a cultivator of True Monarch Eternal Fire’s level.
“I feel that it would be inappropriate. I would like to avoid arousing suspicion if possible. Senior Eternal Fire, I’ll accept your cordial feelings the next time! It’s not too late for me to visit the world of the golden lotus once you have become its master,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
To tell the truth, Song Shuhang had already done enough for the scholarly faction, and helped as much as he could. As for that problem that might appear within the world of the golden lotus, it wasn’t something that a small cultivator of the Third Stage could resolve.
Therefore, there was no need for him to meddle in this matter related to the world of the golden lotus any further.
But right at this time, True Monarch Eternal Fire stretched out his five fingers, and said, “Little friend Tyrannical Saber, what if I reward you with five seeds of the Virtuous Golden Lotus if you participate in the ceremony for the establishment of the new world?”
Song Shuhang replied, “I would be taking advantage of you.”
“In that case, are you going to participate, little friend?” True Monarch Eternal Fire said.
“Ah… Senior Eternal Fire is really too polite. It would be disrespectful to decline since you insist so much, right?” Song Shuhang said. The more lotus seeds he could get, the better. In addition, he didn’t know if it was because he’d eaten a lotus seed earlier, but he felt as though the world of the golden lotus was drawing him in…
Thereupon… after a short moment, Song Shuhang and Venerable White became True Monarch Eternal Fire’s guests, and headed toward the underground space of the scholarly faction with Senior Eternal Fire leading them, ready to join the ceremony for the establishment of the world of the golden lotus.
Below the scholarly faction.
The Virtuous Golden Lotus had already completed its evolution, and its lotus flower had now bloomed. At the same time, since it had matured, the Virtuous Golden Lotus had started to create a small world within the ‘main world’.
The creation of the world of the golden lotus was completed without a hitch.
“It’s finally complete.” That old scholar with a white beard and white hair took a deep breath. “Fellow Daoist Golden Lotus, how is the situation?”
The Virtuous Golden Lotus slightly shook, and it replied to the question of the old man. It told the old man that its condition was good and that the creation of the world was proceeding without problems. In a while, it was going to open the entrance to the new world and allow the members of the scholarly faction to get inside.
“Great, great,” the old scholar said in a soft voice.
After a short moment… the entrance to the world of the golden lotus was opened.
The old scholar acted as the leader, and brought the first batch of scholarly disciples inside.
Next, it was the turn of True Monarch Eternal Fire and several other leaders of the scholarly faction to bring in their disciples and guests.
Song Shuhang and Venerable White followed True Monarch Eternal Fire, entering the world of the golden lotus…
