Immortal Master Copper Trigram had underestimated True Monarch Yellow Mountain’s capabilities. Before its screening, ❮Apocalypse War❯ was advertised everywhere and hyped up to the extreme. Now, one day after the screening, the quality of the movie had conquered all the fans, firing up all the people in the nation.
In the end, the great villain (?) of the movie, Senior Brother Gao Sheng, and the main character, Ling Ye, had left a deep impression on everyone’s mind.
As such, the slogan ‘Senior Brother Gao Sheng must die’ had become, within a very short period of time, the most searched catchphrase of the week. From a certain point of view, the only other character that could compete in popularity with the main character Ling Ye was none other than Senior Brother Gao Sheng himself!
Earlier, when Immortal Master Copper Trigram had disguised himself as Song Shuhang, he constantly wore a radiant smile on his face. As such, the onlookers didn’t immediately associate a sunshine boy like him with the great villain Senior Brother Gao Sheng.
However, the masses couldn’t be underestimated, and it didn’t take long before some sharp-eyed citizen recognized Song Shuhang, finally giving birth to the previous scene.
Several hundred people crazily chased after Senior Brother Gao Sheng, and as if that wasn’t enough, the line of people was getting longer and longer, with everyone shouting in unison: Senior Brother Gao Sheng must die!
The majority of the people that had first joined the line did so only out of curiosity…
But with the number of people making up the line constantly increasing, others got curious as well.
This was the so-called ‘mass psychology’, which gave birth to this flash mob-like event where people madly sprinted forward for no apparent reason.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram couldn’t find the words to describe his current suffering. At this time, he couldn’t become invisible or fly away. After all, if he just flew away in front of all these people, he would surely end up in the newspaper tomorrow.
But there was something even more worrisome… and it was the fact that he couldn’t even run at full speed and had to limit himself by matching the speed of an ordinary person. Otherwise, if he was a little careless, he might leave the best sprinter of the world in the dust.
Luckily, Immortal Master Copper Trigram’s concealment skills were top-notch. After getting chased by the masses for two blocks, he zigzagged around and completely disappeared from everybody’s sight!
In the end, he was an expert when it came to running away!
In the rear, the crowd was gasping for breath. They had lost sight of Senior Brother Gao Sheng, allowing him to get away.
“Aaaah! What a shame. We were so close to catching up with Senior Brother Gao Sheng,” a man in the front said while gasping for breath.
Someone leaned against a wall, and said, “Senior Brother Gao’s stamina is incredible. The more he was running, the faster he was getting. Is he a marathon runner?”
“Did someone record what happened just now?”
“I did. I recorded while riding my vehicle. However, the scene was a bit shaky.”
“If it’s shaky, it just shows that the video is real. But the main problem is… was Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s face visible in the video?”
Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s face obviously had to be visible in the video. Otherwise, how was everyone else going to see whom they were chasing?
“Yes, it’s visible. When someone shouted Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s name earlier, I was quick-witted and immediately started to record the scene with my phone. Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s face as well as the scene where he starts running away were recorded very clearly.”
“In that case, quickly look for a site where you can upload this video. That video from yesterday where someone was putting a gunnysack on Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s head went viral. I’m sure that this video where hundreds of people are chasing after Senior Brother Gao Sheng will go viral as well.”
“Brothers, quickly upload the video online, I’m going to leave a comment as soon as you are finished. This time, I personally participated in this chase after Senior Brother Gao Sheng, and I want to leave behind a comment to commemorate the event.”
“We will immediately push the video to the top. Now then, on which site are you going to upload it?”
On the roof of a nearby building, Immortal Master Copper Trigram wiped the sweat off his forehead.
Fans were truly scary.
“I feel that whenever I disguise as little friend Song Shuhang, something bad happens. Last time, Fairy Firefly threw me into space, and after that, I ended up meeting little friend Song Shuhang’s personal enemies. Back then, it would have been troublesome if I hadn’t gone into hiding promptly. This time, I was unexpectedly chased by some crazy fans for a few blocks. It seems I will have to put little friend Song Shuhang on the list of people that I shouldn’t disguise as for the time being. It’s better not to assume his appearance for a few decades,” Immortal Master Copper Trigram muttered to himself.
From the looks of it, there was no affinity between him and little friend Song Shuhang!
Whenever he disguised as Song Shuhang, he would end up in trouble.
Then, Immortal Master Copper Trigram suddenly furrowed his brows and looked at two approaching sword lights in the sky.
“I have a bad feeling,” Immortal Master Copper Trigram said.
Fifteen minutes later, in one corner of Beijing.
‘Song Shuhang’ stretched out his hand and swung his sword, getting rid of the traces of blood on the blade.
“Tsk! I was hiding from you guys because I didn’t want to take the rap for the person I have disguised as. But little did I expect that you would be so persistent. Did you really think that I was afraid of you?!” Immortal Master Copper Trigram sneered.
Two severely injured and tied up disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect were lying on the ground. They both had the strength of the Fourth Stage.
These two disciples were part of the team in charge of investigating that incident related to the ancestral land of the Limitless Demon Sect getting raided all of a sudden.
The Limitless Demon Sect had already determined that the person that attacked them was the main character of ❮Apocalypse War❯, Ling Ye.
Later, Daoist Priest Weiwei, who was a die-hard fan of Ling Ye, discovered after a chat with one of the elders that Ling Ye was someone very famous in the world of cultivators—he was none other than the legendary Venerable White.
Back then, the elder of the Limitless Demon Sect gave Daoist Priest Weiwei one piece of advice… if they wanted to discover Venerable White’s whereabouts, they could start from ‘Tyrannical Saber’, the actor that played Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s role. After finding Tyrannical Saber, they would indirectly find Venerable White as well.
In addition, this ‘Tyrannical Saber’ was someone that the Hall Leader of the Nine-eyed Kama Hall was targeting. He was only a cultivator of the Third Stage, and he was much easier to deal with in comparison to Venerable White.
The two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect had been dispatched here by Daoist Priest Weiwei, and they were in charge of looking for Tyrannical Saber’s tracks. As coincidence would have it, these two disciples happened to be close to the forbidden city.
As such, after seeing the newly uploaded video, they quickly rushed over to look for clues that would eventually lead them to Senior Brother Gao Sheng.
When it came to following tracks, these two indeed had some skills. Therefore, they quickly found Immortal Master Copper Trigram, who was still disguised as Song Shuhang.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram had already taken the rap for Song Shuhang’s actions.
From the beginning, Immortal Master Copper Trigram had no intention of wasting time with these guys. As such, he tried to avoid them.
But when the two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect saw that Immortal Master Copper Trigram was avoiding them, coupled with the fact that he was just a cultivator of the Third Stage, they got greedy. Instead of just locking onto Tyrannical Saber’s position, wasn’t it better to directly capture him and bring him back to the Limitless Demon Sect?
Afterward… both of them were severely injured and tied up like dumplings.
Had the intelligence department taken the wrong medicine when giving them that information? Which Third Stage Realm… this Tyrannical Saber was clearly at the peak of the Fifth Stage Realm!
“Little friend Song Shuhang owes me one this time.” Immortal Master Copper Trigram took a few pictures of the two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect lying on the ground, and then wondered how he should deal with them.
The next day, August 27th. Tuesday.
Joseph was full of energy as he got up early in the morning. Yesterday, he diligently practiced the first style of the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯, the Evil Slashing Holy Light Sword. He practiced until he was completely exhausted. Then, he took a shower and fell asleep as soon as he hit the sack.
When he got up the next day, he discovered that his constitution had gotten a little stronger, and his mental state had also improved. That was surely the effect of the wondrous technique that his teacher passed onto him yesterday, the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯.
As such, Joseph made up his mind and decided that he would practice the first style of the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯ a hundred times every day from today onwards!
Yesterday, his teacher also mentioned that the ❮Holy Light Sword Technique❯ was a sword technique better matched with a big sword, either the two-handed type or the single-edged one.
If there was an opportunity later, he would have someone forge such a sword for him so that he could use it while practicing this sword technique.
Joseph got the feeling that this sword technique was something tailor-made for him! The name of the sword technique was very cool, and it even sounded like a western name.
Was it possible that this sword technique was something that his teacher had specially created for him?
After thinking of this possibility, Joseph was somewhat moved.
After getting up and having breakfast, the band got in the van, heading toward Jiangnan University Town.
After they got in the van, Joseph’s daughter, Ji Shuangxue, suddenly waved at Song Shuhang, and said, “Schoolmate Shuhang, good morning.”
Usually, this girl was bitterly looking at Song Shuhang whenever she had the occasion. But today, she unexpectedly greeted him on her own?
Song Shuhang faintly smiled, and replied, “Good morning.”
“Schoolmate Shuhang, there is an interesting video I have to show you.” Ji Shuangxue took out her phone and opened a video-sharing site.
The corner of Song Shuhang’s eye twitched. He had more or less guessed which video it was going to be.
As expected, after the video loaded, the title turned out to be: [Senior Brother Gao Sheng must die, I put a gunnysack on Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s head!].
“Director! You still didn’t delete that video?!” Song Shuhang clenched his teeth and turned his head around, looking at that young monster hunter.
“Ahahaha.” The young monster hunter made a hollow laugh. You want me to delete that video? Impossible! That’s the best video I’ve made in my life!
“So it was him who uploaded the video online? Was it a prank among friends?”Ji Shuangxue blinked her eyes, and said, “However, the video I wanted to show you isn’t this one; it’s another.”
She swiped her finger on the display of the phone and opened another video with the following title: [Explosive scene with myriad of people chasing after Senior Brother Gao Sheng!].
The corner of Song Shuhang’s eye twitched again.
“There is something weird about this video… from what I can see, it was recorded last night, and the location was Beijing,” Ji Shuangxue said as she clicked on the video.
In the video, ‘Song Shuhang’ was sitting on the edge of a street while wearing a bright smile on his face.
Song Shuhang couldn’t help but touch his face, somewhat alarmed, and say, “F*ck, who is that guy?”
Ji Shuangxue replied, “I’m also very curious… because you were with us all the time yesterday evening, and it should be impossible for you to suddenly appear in Beijing, which is basically on the other side of the country. Therefore, I was wondering if schoolmate Shuhang had a twin brother?”
“No, I’m an only child.” The corner of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched. At the same time, he had a bad premonition…
And right at this time, in the video, ‘Song Shuhang’ stretched out his hand and picked up a few copper coins from the ground, stuffing them into his turtle shell. Afterward, the slogan ‘Senior Brother Gao Sheng must die’ echoed and ‘Song Shuhang’ ran away.
Senior Copper Trigram!
Song Shuhang didn’t whether to laugh or cry. That ‘Song Shuhang’ in the video was none other than Senior Copper Trigram!
