Song Shuhang felt great after waking up—sleeping soundly surely felt good~ Although the 88,888 voices of the secret appraisal technique chatted in his head from time to time, Song Shuhang was in a deep sleep for most of the time.
After waking up, Song Shuhang took out his mobile phone out of habit to take a look at the time.
September 1st, 2019. 8:05 AM. Battery level: 2%.
“F*ck, it’s already the 1st of September?” Song Shuhang was dumbfounded, and sobered up a little.
This time, he ended up sleeping for so long?
He just closed his eyes… and when he opened them, the last few days of his summer vacation were gone already?
It was something that truly made one’s heart ache. After all, the last few days of summer vacation were the most precious ones!
In the past, during this period, he would always count the remaining days of summer vacation and plan how to spend them. But now, those precious days had passed while he was unconscious!
Shuhang was filled with regret.
“Good morning, Senior Brother Shuhang.” But right at this time, the pleasant voice of a young girl echoed in Song Shuhang’s ears.
Song Shuhang turned his head around and discovered that the young ‘Shi’ was sitting in front of a desk not too far from him, watching a movie. Her petite body was cuddled up in the big leather chair, with her small feet swaying back and forth. She looked adorable.
Just now, Shi’d heard Song Shuhang’s voice. As such, she’d turned her head around and greeted him.
“Good morning, Shi.” Song Shuhang propped himself up. At this time, he was in the multi-storied building that Medicine Master had bought. It was likely that Ye Si was the one that brought him here after he fainted.
“Where are Guoguo and Zhu?” Song Shuhang asked.
“Zhu and Guoguo played games all night and are still sleeping.” Shi carefully placed the shells of the melon seeds she had eaten into a small bag. Afterward, she added, “Senior Brother Shuhang, are you hungry? Do you want to eat something?”
Song Shuhang smacked his lips and felt that the inside of his mouth was dry. Thereupon, he said, “I’ll have a bowl of noodles plus vegetables and eggs. Do we have the ingredients at home?”
“Yes. During the past few days, I was the one in charge of buying groceries and preparing the dishes. As such, we have a lot of eggs and vegetables at home.” After saying this much, Shi paused the movie she was watching and jumped down from the big chair. “Senior Brother Shuhang, wait for a moment. I’ll cook something for you.”
“Thank you,” Song Shuhang said.
“You are welcome. Right, Senior Brother Shuhang, since you woke up, you should give Senior Brother Three Realms a call. He seemed to be looking for you.” After saying this much, Shi jogged outside the room.
“Sure,” Song Shuhang replied.
After yawning, Song Shuhang stretched out his hand and pressed it on his chest. When that kamikaze dinosaur injured him, his chest was almost burst open. But now, it had recovered to its previous state, and there wasn’t even a scar left behind.
The effects of healing magical techniques were truly excellent.
Next, Song Shuhang said, “Ye Si, are you there?”
[Eh? Shuhang, you woke up!] Ye Si used the mental connection between a ghost spirit and its master to reply to Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang was dumbfounded. From the looks of it, Ye Si wasn’t inside his body. Thereupon, he asked, “Ye Si, where are you now?”
[I’m window-shopping with Fellow Daoist Dongfang Six. Let me tell you something~ When we got out of home today, it was particularly thrilling. On the road, if not for me being deft-handed and using my mental power to apply the brakes, Dongfang Six would have crashed into a river alongside a vehicle and the people inside, ahahaha! Right, I’m strolling through a handbag shop with Dongfang Six at the moment. The prices were a little high, and I bought handbags for a total of 1 million RMB. Fellow Daoist Dongfang Six paid on my behalf. We’ll look for you in a while to settle the account,] Ye Si replied.
She had bought four handbags for a total of 1 million RMB…
Song Shuhang got a scare, and even his mobile phone almost fell to the ground. Not too much time had passed since he had become a cultivator, and he was different from the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, who could casually give people phone recharges up to 10 million RMB…
Luckily, when Song Shuhang and Senior Brother Three Realms went to clean up Altar Master’s lair the last time, Song Shuhang found a black box with 3 million RMB inside.
Thereupon, 1 million RMB was still within a range he could accept.
As such, Song Shuhang said smilingly, [No problem! Ye Si, it’s fine as long as you are happy. When the time comes, tell Fairy Dongfang Six to look for me. I’ll pay her back.]
[If you say so, I feel relieved. Fairy Dongfang Six and I just finished strolling through the handbag shop. Next, we are going to the nearby clothing and shoe store, as well as several other stores. We’ll chat later,] Ye Si said happily.
Song Shuhang’s liver faintly trembled.
It wasn’t that he was stingy… After all, money was different from spirit stones for cultivators, and no matter how much of it they spent, they wouldn’t regret it.
The main problem was that Song Shuhang didn’t have much money on him at the moment.
He recalled that most of the cash in his possession came from Altar Master.
He’d first obtained 800,000 RMB after killing Altar Master on the train, and another 3 million RMB after cleaning up his lair.
Afterward, he had spent some bits and pieces of this sum.
For example, he used the money to buy a computer and all sorts of electronic products for Senior White when he came out of secluded meditation. Then, he also used it for his daily expenses. At this time, Song Shuhang still had 3,600,000 RMB with him.
Now then, would 3,600,000 RMB be enough for Senior Sister Ye Si’s purchases…?
If this sum wasn’t enough, he would have to contact Senior Medicine Master and quickly make some money.
After concluding his mental conversation with Ye Si…
Song Shuhang closed his eyes and checked the nucleus in his Heart Aperture.
His Inner World was still evolving at this moment, and it would still take some time before the evolution was complete.
Judging from its approximate size, that small island with a surface of twenty square meters was now at least a thousand times bigger.
In addition, its size wasn’t the only thing that had changed. His Inner World had also changed a lot. At this time, several big gateways had appeared all around his Inner World.
Although he had no idea what the use of these gateways was, Song Shuhang felt that they looked rather incredible.
Other than this… Song Shuhang had again advanced a small realm.
Cultivators of the Third Stage had four mysterious meridians altogether—[Dazzling Star, Overcast Moon, Blazing Sun, Immaterial King].
At this time, the third meridian in Song Shuhang’s body, the Blazing Sun Meridian, had been opened as well.
Aside from that, Song Shuhang felt as if his body had broken through the shackles holding it down, becoming incredibly powerful.
At this time, his body was constantly absorbing the spiritual qi of the world. After entering Song Shuhang’s body, the spiritual qi would moisten his physique. A small portion would then mix into his liquefied ‘Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Innate True Qi’, directly transforming into innate true qi.
Is it possible that my constitution broke through the limitations of the Third Stage?Song Shuhang guessed.
The only problem was that there wasn’t a senior around, and Ye Si was also absent. Therefore, he had no way of telling for sure.
Still, he felt that his body was in perfect condition.
In that case, he would head to Jiangnan University Town to complete the registration after having breakfast.
It was possible to register in Jiangnan University Town from the 1st to the 3rd of September, and the lessons would start around the 6th.
After completing the registration, he would head to the forbidden city.
September had finally started, and tonight was the great battle on the summit of the forbidden city between Immortal Master Copper Trigram and Northern River’s Loose Cultivator!
“New semester, new look. Let’s go!” Song Shuhang got up and went to brush his teeth and rinse his mouth.
Now that he was clear-headed, Song Shuhang took out his mobile phone and used the ‘battery charging technique’ to push the level of this battery to 100%.
Then, he gave Senior Brother Three Realms a call.
Senior Brother Three Realms quickly picked up the phone. “Hello, Shuhang~ you finally woke up. I heard that you got involved in an explosion a few days ago and have been unconscious since then. I was worried that you wouldn’t wake up today, either.”
The corner of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched. The fact that he got involved in an explosion had spread so quickly…?
“Thank you for your concern, Senior Brother Three Realms. Right, Shi said that you were looking for me,” Song Shuhang said. Was it possible that Senior Brother Three Realms was busy with something else and wanted him to take care of Guoguo, Shi, and Zhu for some more time…?
“It’s like this… are you going to watch the great battle between Senior Northern River and Senior Copper Trigram on the summit of the forbidden city tonight?” Senior Brother Three Realms asked.
“Yes, I’m planning to go. After I’m finished handling the tuition and the university registration, I’ll head to the forbidden city,” Song Shuhang replied.
Actually, Jiangnan University Town gave students the opportunity to pay the tuition online. But since Song Shuhang was already in the Jiangnan area, it was more convenient to directly head to the university and pay there.
“Perfect~ In that case, bring Guoguo, Shi, and Zhu with you when you come over. This evening, I’ll also head to the forbidden city alongside Great Master Profound Principle to capture Copper Tri— ugh! I mean, to watch the great battle between Senior Copper Trigram and Senior Northern River. At that time, you can simply leave Guoguo, Shi, and Zhu to me,” Senior Brother Three Realms said.
“Sure, no problem. Let us meet this evening,” Song Shuhang said with a nod.
“See you later.” Senior Brother Three Realms smiled, and hung up the phone.
Song Shuhang put his mobile phone away. Just now, did Senior Brother Three Realms say that they were going to capture Senior Copper Trigram? Did Senior Copper Trigram seek death during the past few days, angering Great Master Profound Principle?
After concluding the call, Song Shuhang thought for a moment, and then dialed Senior Xian Gong’s phone number. Back then, they had agreed that he would send Senior Xian Gong his coordinates after reaching the Jiangnan area, and Xian Gong would send him the [Dragon Tail] magical treasure through a flying sword.
But little did he expect that he would suddenly faint and stay unconscious until today. Had Senior Xian Gong already gone into secluded meditation?
The phone was quickly picked up.
Still, the voice that came from the other end wasn’t Scholar Xian Gong’s, but that of another scholar.
“Hello, you are little friend Shuhang, right?” The gentle voice of that other scholar echoed.
Song Shuhang recognized the owner of this voice, but he couldn’t remember the daoist name of this senior…
What was the name of that senior? Drunken Sun? Tyrannical Heaven? Bright Moon?
Damn, he had forgotten his daoist name!
What to do now?
At the critical moment, Song Shuhang had a sudden idea, and said, “Hello, may I ask which senior you are? Is Senior Xian Gong not around? I had something to ask him.”
Song Shuhang pretended not to recognize that senior, and seized the opportunity to ask him his daoist name.
“Little friend Song Shuhang, it’s me, Scholar Drunken Moon. Fellow Daoist Xian Gong went into secluded meditation two days ago. He guessed that you might contact him in the near future. As such, he left his mobile phone, as well as that magical treasure, to me,” Scholar Drunken Moon said in a gentle voice
