Song Shuhang forced a smile, and said, “So that’s what happened… what I did earlier was probably considered ferrying her soul…”
He just read the verses of Ksitigarbha’s Soul Ferrying Scripture when he was beside that woman with the beauty mark, and didn’t really use the Soul Ferrying Technique. However, he still ended up gaining a large number of virtue points.
Venerable White immediately understood what was going on. “Did you ferry the soul of that person?”
“Yes,” Song Shuhang said with a nod.
“Damn.” Venerable White was startled. “If you ferried the soul of that person, it means that the Jade Lake Realm has lost its ‘support’. If that’s really the case, the Jade Lake Realm will get destroyed very soon. Sigh, what a pity… why didn’t she leave me the core first? With the core, I would be able to support the Jade Lake Realm myself!”
“The core?” Song Shuhang immediately took out the phoenix coronet and the gorgeous phoenix robe, handing them over to Senior White. “Senior White, this is the core!”
Both the phoenix coronet and the phoenix robe were accessories for women.
How would Senior White look after wearing them?Song Shuhang felt that he was somewhat looking forward to seeing the scene.
Venerable White took the phoenix coronet and the phoenix robe, stretching out his hand and examining them.
“These are indeed the cores of the Jade Lake Realm. Shuhang, you did well. With the core in hand, I can support the Jade Lake Realm again and take it away, turning it into my new holiday residence,” Venerable White said.
It seemed that collecting ‘holiday residences’ was one of Senior White’s hobbies…
After saying this much, Venerable White took off the robe he was wearing, staying only in his underclothes. Then, he opened that golden-red phoenix robe.
Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen had a tacit understanding and took out their mobile phones at the same time, clicking on the camera app.
Venerable White furrowed his brows and said, “Wait, these are female clothes.”
Song Shuhang said, “Senior White, you can’t hesitate now. Otherwise, the whole Jade Lake Realm will be destroyed! If you don’t take control of this place right this instant, everything would have been in vain.”
These words looked particularly hot-blooded when matched with the blazing golden flames burning on Song Shuhang’s body.
Venerable White gazed at the mobile phones in Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen’s hands and was rendered speechless.
After a short moment, he sighed and said, “You are not allowed to spread the pictures. Otherwise, I’ll make you board a disposable flying sword and send you to the Secret Realm of Slowness to keep company to Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.”
Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen repeatedly nodded their heads.
Venerable White stretched out his hands and skillfully wore the golden-red dual-colored phoenix robe.
Behind him, the monster willow Qing Wu also stretched out her tree branches, holding Venerable White’s black hair up and making him wear the phoenix coronet.
The whole clothes-changing process was very natural and smooth…
“Senior White, have you worn similar clothing in the past?” Song Shuhang probed. After all, Senior White seemed really proficient in wearing this phoenix robe.
“Yes, I have worn similar clothing in the past,” Venerable White replied with a nod.
Song Shuhang’s eyes immediately lit up. Was it possible that Senior White had the hobby of disguising as a woman in the past?
“Don’t indulge in flights of fancy… I only tried the clothes for someone, and that was it. Speaking of which, it has been already 300 years since that time. Back then, I knew a very interesting fellow daoist. Her daoist name was ‘Winter Melon’, and she was a fairy maiden. If I’m not mistaken, she should be one of the elders of Fairy Lychee’s sect. The daoist names of her generation were from the vegetable series, while the daoist names of Fairy Lychee’s generation are from the fruit series,” Venerable White explained while putting in order his clothes.
After hearing these words, Song Shuhang felt that one needed to have very strong willpower to join this sect Fairy Lychee was part of. The previous generation had daoist names of the vegetable series, while the current one of the fruit series. As such, which kind of daoist names would have the generation after Fairy Lychee’s? Cereal series? True Monarch Rice, Fairy Wheat, Fairy Barley, Daoist Priest Sorghum? Just thinking about this made him cringe.
“Anyway, Fairy Winter Melon really liked designing immortal clothing. She wasn’t interested in selling the clothes; it was just one of her hobbies. Then, she would frequently call me over and make me try the clothes for her… as such, I wore clothes similar to this phoenix robe several times,” Venerable White replied.
That was how it was. No wonder Senior White didn’t dislike wearing the phoenix robe that much, and this was also the reason he seemed so familiar with the process.
“Is that Fairy Winter Melon still safe and sound?” Song Shuhang asked. After all, Senior White hadn’t mentioned her since he had come out of secluded meditation, and neither had she called him over to try her clothes…
“When I held the hand-guided tractor competition the last time, I tried to contact her. However, I heard from her senior sister that she went to some other celestial body to look for raw materials to manufacture immortal clothing. I heard she wanted to create jade clothing sewn with golden thread, the glistening type. She has left for a few dozen years already and has yet to return.” After he had said this much, Venerable White fixed the phoenix coronet on his head.
Then, he stretched out his hands in front of him and closed his eyes, meditating and communicating with the phoenix coronet and phoenix robe.
As long as he could establish a connection with the core, he would be able to take over the Jade Lake Realm and support this fragment of the Heavenly City anew.
Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen quietly took a few steps back so as to avoid disturbing Senior White.
At the same time, the virtuous golden flames burning on Song Shuhang’s body started to shrink and entered the second phase of the qualitative change process. It was unknown when would the mutation come to an end.
“Senior White is really good-looking,” Su Clan’s Sixteen said. “If I were a man, I would surely marry Senior White.”
“…” Song Shuhang said,” Sixteen, you are making a mistake here! Don’t mistake Senior White’s gender.”
“That wasn’t my meaning.” Su Clan’s Sixteen smiled slyly. Then, she gazed at Song Shuhang, and said, “Shuhang, if I manage to successfully transcend the heavenly tribulation… I’ll come to the Jiangnan area to look for you.”
“This time, you’ll surely transcend your heavenly tribulation. I can guarantee you that,” Song Shuhang said. “In that case, let us meet in the Jiangnan area.”
“Hmm.” Su Clan’s Sixteen smiled and nodded. This time, she would absolutely transcend the tribulation; there was no room for failure.
[Right, Sixteen. What do you know about the Secret Realm of Slowness? Aside from each action getting slowed down while inside, is there any other effect?] Song Shuhang used the secret sound transmission method to ask.
[Why are you asking this question?] Su Clan’s Sixteen asked out of curiosity.
[Don’t you feel that keeping the pictures of Senior White wearing the phoenix coronet and the phoenix robe hidden in our phones is too much of a waste? To tell you the truth, I had the impulse of sending these pictures of Senior White in the Nine Provinces Number One Group,] Song Shuhang said jokingly.
Su Clan’s Sixteen put on a serious expression, and said, [Shuhang… later, you should avoid contact with Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber and Senior Copper Trigram as much as possible. If you get in contact with them too much, you might get infected.]
[Don’t worry, I was just joking. I’m not really interested in visiting the Secret Realm of Slowness,] Song Shuhang said with a smile.
Song Shuhang’s voice had hardly faded when he heard a thud coming from behind. It was the sound of an object falling to the ground.
He turned his head around and discovered that it was Senior White’s mobile phone that had fallen to the ground. Earlier, Venerable White got a message from Venerable Spirit Butterfly. However, Senior White was too busy at that time and asked Song Shuhang to help him reply. Afterward, the mobile phone had just stayed with Song Shuhang.
In the Jade Lake Realm, the mobile phones in Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen’s possession were unable to get a signal. Only Venerable White’s super-magically modified mobile phone showed no weakness and could still get in contact with the external world.
Song Shuhang started to get restless as soon as he saw the phone. He had put the mobile phone in the front pocket of this daoist robe, the one around his chest area… as such, how come the phone fell from his waist area just now?
He quickly picked up Venerable White’s mobile phone.
The screen of the phone happened to be unlocked. Song Shuhang took a look at it, and what appeared before his eyes in the next moment was the chat interface of the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Venerable White was still logged in with his account.
Then, he saw that someone had sent to the Nine Provinces Number One Group a series of beautiful pictures where Venerable White was wearing a phoenix coronet and a phoenix robe.
[Ye Si!!!] Song Shuhang roared inwardly.
Only Ye Si, who was currently fused with his body, was capable of secretly taking Venerable White’s mobile phone from his pocket.
Ye Si explained, [About that… just now, I heard you say that you wanted to send Venerable White’s pictures to the Nine Provinces Number One Group. Then, for some unknown reason, I felt that it was a very good idea and approved of it very much. Afterward, I subconsciously took this mobile phone and took several pictures, uploading them to the group. I think it’s the power of the contract between the two of us!]
What power of the contract! I was just joking, how did it even involve the contract!
Song Shuhang quickly stretched out his hand deleted the pictures that Senior Sister Ye Si had sent to the group.
System Notification: [Your message has been deleted.]
Luckily, it was still possible to delete the pictures since two minutes had yet to pass. Just now, no one had popped up in the Nine Provinces Number One Group to write something. Therefore, there was a chance that none of the seniors had seen these pictures…
After a short moment, in the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da sent several messages in a row:
“[Picture of a cute puppy].”
“[Picture of the head of a dog being furiously rubbed].”
“I’m done with my self-deprecating humor, and no one interrupted my combo, FeelsGoodMan!@I’m Mr. Yellow Mountain’s loyal dog.”
”@Venerable White,Senior White, what was the message you deleted just now? I didn’t see it.”
Song Shuhang rejoiced inwardly. If they hadn’t seen it, even better!
But right at this time…
Dongfang Snow: “Wahahaha! Senior Brother Guo Da, you didn’t see? I managed to see it. In addition, I was quick enough to save the pictures! Wait a moment, I’ll send you the pictures. They are beautiful!”
Dongfang Snow: “[Beautiful picture of Senior White wearing a phoenix coronet and phoenix robe.]”
Dongfang Snow: “Ayaya, Senior White is too beautiful. Senior White, marry me!”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Just now, I was bamboozled and did not dare to make a sound. However, if I stay silent any longer, it would hurt my reputation as the always online holy warrior of the Nine Provinces Number One Group. Senior White is too beautiful. Senior White, marry me! +1”
Fairy Firefly: “I’ve already saved the picture. Senior White is too beautiful. Senior White, marry me! +2”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “The picture was something that Senior White sent on his own initiative. Although it was later deleted, it was something that Senior White sent personally. Therefore, we can save it without having to worry. Senior White is too beautiful. Senior White, marry me! +3”
In the Jade Lake Realm.
The hand Song Shuhang was using to hold the mobile phone was now shaking. He felt that a movie with an apocalyptic setting had just invited him to be the main character.
