The young monster hunter felt as if he had neglected something important…
Just now, when he suddenly discovered that ‘Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ was actually Senior Brother Gao Sheng, he was immediately dumbfounded. Then, he operated his brain at full speed in the hopes of finding the best way to face ‘Senior Brother Gao Sheng’ given the current situation.
But now that he recalled everything that had happened again, he had seemingly overlooked a few things.
For example, those three disobedient children, one small monk and two little lolis, had fluctuations of qi and blood energy coming from their bodies—they were cultivators!
Then, there was that girl that he initially mistook for Stressed by a Mountain of Books. Although he couldn’t detect any fluctuation of qi and blood, true qi, or spiritual qi coming from her body, her skin was fine and glossy, and her whole body seemed filled with energy. She definitely wasn’t an ordinary girl—she was also a cultivator!
Beyond that, the arm strength of ‘Stressed by a Mountain of Books’, who was now warmly hugging him, also seemed a little too big. Was it possible that Stressed by a Mountain of Books was also a cultivator?
Impossible, right? There couldn’t really be such a coincidence, could it?
The more the young monster hunter thought about the situation, the more he felt that there was something wrong.
Just as he was in deep thought, the young monster hunter felt that his ribs had started to hurt. Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ hug was like the deadly hug of a ferocious bear, and his grip was getting stronger and stronger.
Is this guy doing it on purpose?
The young monster hunter immediately thought about Senior Yellow Mountain’s actions from before.
Before leaving, Senior Yellow Mountain casually stuffed that treasured armor into my hands… Is it possible that he knew in advance that something might happen after my meeting with Stressed by a Mountain of Books, and gave me that treasured armor so that I could protect myself?
…I absolutely can’t admit that I was the one that put the gunnysack over Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ head…
I won’t admit it even if I get beaten to death!
After confessing, he would definitely get a death sentence, but if he kept denying, there was a chance he might return home safely!
Thereupon, the young monster hunter coughed, and said, “Cough, Stressed by a Mountain of Books, you are putting to much strength in this hug of yours.”
“Hehe, it can’t be helped… because I’m really excited at this time.” Song Shuhang clenched his teeth, and said, “My dear friend, you put a gunnysack over my head when we were in front of the bathroom of that hotel. Then, you even uploaded the video online… As such, now that I’ve finally found you, my entire body is shivering due to the excitement, and I’m not sure how I should thank you for that surprise.”
The young monster hunter played dumb as he said in puzzlement, “Ah? I have no idea what you are talking about.”
At the same time, he tried to break free of the grip, but Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ strength was simply too high for him to overcome. Luckily, he was wearing that treasured armor Senior Yellow Mountain had given him. Otherwise, he might have been unable to stand this deadly bear hug.
“My dear friend, there is no point in lying.” Song Shuhang laughed, and said, “Even if your face was covered, I’ve noted down your build and aura, and I absolutely won’t make mistakes when it comes to recognizing you. Now, time for you to die! Divine punishment!”
The young monster hunter lowered his voice as he said, “F*ck, you are also a cultivator?”
“What do you think?” Song Shuhang had already decided—he would let this guy have a taste of the outworldly coiling toss!
But right at this time, the young monster hunter said in a panic, “Wait, wait a moment! Stressed by a Mountain of Books, quickly let me go… the nearby people are looking at us in a strange manner!”
Earlier, after wearing the treasured armor and changing his clothes, he had removed the effects of the invisible formation from his body so that Stressed by a Mountain of Books could easily find him. As a consequence, all the ordinary people in Baijing Street could now see them.
At this time, he and Stressed by a Mountain of Books had been warmly hugging each other for quite some time… and had yet to separate.
Actually, hugging a friend after meeting them face-to-face was quite normal.
But when the two friends in question were two manly men that had been enthusiastically hugging each other for quite some time and whose embrace was only getting tighter, it definitely didn’t look too normal! The young monster hunter could feel that the way the people in the surrounding area were looking at him was strange to say the least.
In a distant place, there were already some girls laughing and using one hand to cover their mouths and the other one to pull out their mobile phones, preparing to take a few pictures!
Cultivators were in most cases rather good-looking. After all, they would purify their body and soul while practicing, and their skin and build were very attractive. Unless they practiced some special cultivation technique or a demonic technique, cultivators would generally have good looks.
As such, this scene where two handsome and delicate men were passionately hugging each other in Baijing Street’s intersection was simply too spicy to the eye.
“Hehe, I’ll let go in that case,” Song Shuhang said.
In the next moment, he stretched out his hands and suddenly threw the young monster hunter midair!
At first, Song Shuhang was planning to try out his ‘outworldly coiling toss’, but there were too many ordinary people in this street intersection of Baijing Street at the moment. If they saw someone thrown a dozen or so meters up in the air while spinning, all the people in the surrounding area, who weren’t clear as to what going on, might get frightened.
Therefore, Song Shuhang decided to alter his plans for the time being.
He would let this guys off the hook for now…
But after returning home, he would compete with him in martial arts!
After he was thrown in the air, the young monster hunter performed a beautiful somersault midair and safely landed to the ground.
The whole action had been incredibly cool.
In a distant place, those girls, who had been preparing to take pictures, couldn’t help but applaud in admiration.
The young monster hunter smiled and then cupped his hands while facing those pretty girls.
“…” Song Shuhang.
As expected, I should have given this bastard a taste of the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique Two❯ on the spot.
After all, if he instantly unleashed 300 punches, ordinary people wouldn’t even be able to see them!
Five minutes later.
Song Shuhang brought the young monster hunter along and headed back home.
“Stressed by a Mountain of Books, let me explain… I’m sorry for what happened earlier. I was wrong when I put that gunnysack on your head. However, I didn’t have any bad intention, I just wanted to play a prank on you, and that was it,” the young monster hunter said while they were walking.
Song Shuhang gently smiled. “If you had any bad intentions, you would have gotten to instantly taste 300 punches.”
“Cough, anyway… just now, you ruthlessly threw me in the air in front of so many people. Therefore, can we call it even?” the young monster hunter said.
The corner of Song Shuhang’s mouth rose. “In your dreams. In a while, you and I will spar, and regardless of victory or defeat, only then it will be truly over!”
The young monster hunter said, “Violence is bad! We now live in an era of peace and love. Therefore, can’t we peacefully settle this dispute?”
“We can… but only if you stand still and let me put a gunnysack on your head. Afterward, I’ll also upload the video online. Only at that time will we be able to truly call it even,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
He had even decided on the title—[Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s resurgence and fierce counterattack, giving the gunnysack offender a taste of his own medicine.]
“Hmm, after all, it’s better if we just fight. Today, I just happened to have received a few pointers from a senior, and I had a lot of inspirations!” the young monster hunter said with a serious expression on his face. After he had said this much, he thought of another matter, and asked, “Right, Stressed by a Mountain of Books… what’s your realm?”
“Third Stage ‘Overcast Moon Meridian’,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
“…” The young monster hunter.
In the end, it’s better if I just let him put a gunnysack on my head!
In Song Shuhang’s house.
Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist was sitting on the sofa, fiddling with his mobile phone. At this time, he was in the living room alone. Papa Song had a matter to take care and went out, while Mama Song was busy in the kitchen.
The bored Daoist Priest published a message in his WeChat Moments.
[Today, I’ll finally be able to meet that little friend… This time, I have to take advantage of the treasure in his hand at all costs! After leeching off that treasure, I’ll happily advance a small realm!]
After he had sent this message, several hundred people popped out, putting likes his message or leaving behind some comments.
Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist put the mobile phone away, very satisfied.
At last… little friend Song Shuhang was coming back! He had already sensed Song Shuhang’s aura, he was right outside the door.
“Click.” The sound of the key turning inside the lock echoed.
In the next moment, Song Shuhang entered the house together with Ye Si, the three disobedient children, and the young monster hunter.
“Eh? Did a guest come over?” Song Shuhang saw the shoes at the entrance and wondered.
Immediately after, he sensed a familiar aura coming from the living room of his house.
After hearing the sound of the door opening, Mama Song came over to greet them with a smile, and said, “Shuhang, you are back. This guest is Mister Li Yun from next door. He had wanted to meet you for quite some time, but he missed the opportunity to see you the previous several times. Therefore, he decided to directly wait for you in the living room today.”
As expected, it was him—Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist from the Penniless Thief Sect.
“I see. I’ll go to meet him,” Song Shuhang said with a smile.
Right at this time, the young monster hunter also greeted Mama Song. “Hello, auntie.”
“Eh? A new guest! Welcome to our house. Anyway, you guys can go rest in the living room.” Mama Song smiled and greeted him back.
In the living room.
Song Shuhang brought the young monster hunter and the three disobedient along and went to see Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist.
Ye Si went to the kitchen to prepare the tea for the guests.
“Senior Cloudy Mist, long time no see.” After entering the living room, Song Shuhang waved his hand at Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist.
Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist’s expression stiffened as he looked at Song Shuhang.
He was literally blinded!
Unless his senses were betraying him, there were fluctuations of energy of the Third Stage Realm coming from the body of this guy called Song Shuhang. In addition, his constitution was infinitely approaching the strength of a cultivator of the Fourth Stage Realm!
How long had it been…?
Just how much time had passed since the last time he saw him?
A little more than a month and a half, right?
The last time they met, he remembered that Song Shuhang had still been at the First Stage Realm…
Is it possible that I remembered incorrectly?
The young monster hunter also secretly sized up Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist. This guy was another senior whose strength he was unable to determine. Therefore, he had at very least the strength of the Fifth Stage Realm, or perhaps even higher?
Previously… he was worried that it might be dangerous for his Internet friend, Stressed by a Mountain of Books, to head to the Jiangnan area alone. As such, he had deliberately come over to accompany Song Shuhang until Jiangnan University Town and protect him during the journey.
However, it turned out that this bastard didn’t need his protection!
After seeing that Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist was at a loss for words, Song Shuhang asked in puzzlement, “Senior, is something the matter?”
Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist sighed with emotion, and said, “It’s nothing… I just feel that new generation is bound to best the previous one, with the new one getting bolder and more daring as time passes by.”
Although he knew that Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist was just using a metaphor to describe his feelings, Song Shuhang was suddenly reminded of Senior Thrice Reckless when he heard these words.
“Cough. Senior, I heard my mother saying that you have been waiting for me all along… is it possible that you needed my help with something?” Song Shuhang asked.
Actually, Song Shuhang felt some pity for Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist.
Because Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist’s nemesis, True Monarch Yellow Mountain, was already in Wenzhou City, and he had even reached Baijing Street from what Shuhang knew. What was True Monarch doing at this time?
“It’s like this… I wanted to practice while staying close to little friend for some time since I’m about to advance a small realm,” Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist said calmly.
“I see,” Song Shuhang said with a nod. Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist knew that he had the enlightenment stone with him. Thereupon, he wanted to freeload the power of the stone and advance a small realm.
Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist also added, “After I have advanced a small realm, I’ll go and do something big.”
When saying the last sentence, Daoist Priest put on a self-important look and said poetically, “I’ve broken free of the seal, and it’s time to sweep stupid Yellow Mountain’s house clean!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
