“Eh? What happened to the Chu Family?” Soft Feather asked. Her friend Chu Chunying was a member of the Chu Family. Therefore, she was very interested in the various matters related to her family.
“It’s like this… the fact that the key to a forbidden area was concealed within the sword technique handed down in the Chu Family was leaked. The more the leaked information spread, the more it was exaggerated. A few days later, a group of experts raided the Chu Family.” Song Shuhang briefly described what had happened.
“Someone raided the Chu Family? Who was it?” Soft Feather said anxiously.
Song Shuhang said, “We don’t know yet.”
“Senior Song, what about Chu Chunying? Is she safe?” Soft Feather asked. Chu Chunying was still pregnant. She had to be okay!
“I just received the news about the raid from an injured disciple of the Chu Family, and I’m not clear about Miss Chu Chunying’s condition. Soft Feather, don’t worry. Senior White and I will make a trip to the Chu Family in a while, and I’ll give you a call at that time,” Song Shuhang said.
“In that case, I’ll have to trouble Senior Song.” After hearing that Senior Song and Venerable White would soon head to the Chu Family, Soft Feather heaved a sigh of relief.
After concluding the call with Song Shuhang, Soft Feather ran to where her father was.
“Father, I need your help!” Soft Feather shouted while running.
Venerable Spirit Butterfly was seated in his pavilion, drinking tea and chatting with Thrice Reckless Mad Saber. Thrice Reckless Mad Saber had seized this opportunity to ask Venerable Spirit Butterfly about a few cultivation-related problems.
He had been captured and dragged over there to shoot a movie. If he didn’t even ask Venerable Spirit Butterfly about cultivation-related problems, he would suffer a big loss.
After hearing Soft Feather’s voice, Venerable Spirit Butterfly turned his head around, and asked out of curiosity, “Soft Feather, did something happen?”
“Yes!” Soft Feather arrived in front of Venerable Spirit Butterfly and made an effort to nod her head. “Yes, something happened. Right… Father, today’s daoist name is ‘Tribulation Destroyer’. You called me with the wrong name.”
Venerable Spirit Butterfly revealed a gentle smile, and said, “Yes, yes. I got your name wrong. In that case, Tribulation Destroyer, do you need your father’s help with something?”
The nearby Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was speechless.
Heavens! Miss Soft Feather was still going on with that 365 daoist names thing! Did that mean that Venerable Spirit Butterfly really thought of a new daoist name for his beloved daughter every day?
This was the love of a father at work!
Thrice Reckless felt if he had a daughter in the future, and the daughter wanted 365 daoist names, he would definitely… agree.
However, the daoist names he was going to choose wouldn’t be as troublesome as those of Senior Spirit Butterfly. He could easily pick a daoist name similar to his own for his daughter, one that had a number inside. Under these circumstances, it was going to be rather easy to pick a daoist name for every day. For example, he could pick the name ‘Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’ and turn it into ‘Once Reckless Mad Saber’, ‘Twice Reckless Mad Saber’, and so on until reaching ‘365 Times Reckless Mad Saber’.
With that, one could come up with daoist names for a lifetime. After all, numbers were infinite! 666 Times Reckless Mad Saber, 100,000,000 Times Reckless Mad Saber, 1 Billion Times Reckless Mad Saber, 1 Trillion Times Reckless Mad Saber. As long as a few zeros were added to them, the various daoist names would last a lifetime. Absolutely perfect.
After thinking about it, he felt that it was a very good idea.
At this time, Fairy Tribulation Destroyer said, “Father, something happened at the Chu Family. Can you send someone over there to help them?”
“The Chu Family? The one involved with that Grievance Settling Platform thing the last time?” Venerable Spirit Butterfly asked out of curiosity.
“Yes!” Fairy Tribulation Destroyer said with a nod.
Afterward, she told her father about everything that Song Shuhang had told her on the phone.
After hearing the news, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber sighed with emotion, and said, “Sometimes, possessing valuable items becomes a crime.”
After hearing the full description, Venerable Spirit Butterfly fell into deep thought, and said, “I’ll dispatch some people in the vicinity of the Chu Family so that they can keep an eye on the place. The strength of the attackers wasn’t low if they managed to severely injure that ancestor of the Spiritual Emperor rank after catching him off guard.”
Venerable Spirit Butterfly’s voice had yet to fade when he saw the expectant look on his beloved daughter’s face.
The corner of Venerable Spirit Butterfly’s mouth rose as he said, “I, your father, might also enter the fray, but you have to learn how to ride a flying sword first. As soon as you manage to learn how to control a flying sword, I’ll accompany you to the Chu Family.”
If he could persuade Soft Feather to fully focus on learning the art of riding a flying sword, it would be worth it for him to make a trip to the Chu Family.
He could consider it a special activity to celebrate the fact that his daughter had transcended her tribulation.
“It’s a deal, then,” Soft Feather said.
“A gentleman never goes back on his word,” Venerable Spirit Butterfly said with a smile.
After that, Fairy Tribulation Destroyer gritted her teeth, and grabbed her flying sword. “Father, in that case, let’s immediately start learning how to ride a flying sword!”
“Don’t you want to rest a little?” Venerable Spirit Butterfly said.
“No need. I think I’ll learn how to ride a flying sword very quickly!” Soft Feather said, full of confidence. Then, she patted her pocket, which had a mini MP3 player inside—within this MP3 player was saved Senior Creation’s ❮Seven Deaths Song❯.
To sum it up… as long as her background music was playing, nothing could stop her!
With the empowerment of Senior Creation’s ❮Seven Deaths Song❯, she would be able to learn how to ride a flying sword in the shortest time possible!
After concluding the call, Song Shuhang looked for Venerable White’s number, and gave him a call.
However, Senior White didn’t pick up his phone.
Song Shuhang sighed. From the looks of it, Senior White was so excited while operating that excavator that he even forgot to pick up his phone.
At this time, the Western monk finished dealing with the formalities needed to leave the hospital.
Song Shuhang helped up the disciple of the Chu Family, and lay him down on Ye Si’s golden book.
“Ye Si, let’s head to Jiangnan University and look for Senior Seven Lives Talisman. After that, we’ll head to that nearby university and look for Senior White,” Song Shuhang said.
“Alright,” Ye Si replied, and her life-bound golden book headed toward Jiangnan University Town.
Along the way, Song Shuhang dialed Venerable White’s number again, but there was still no response.
Senior White didn’t store his mobile phone inside some space-type magical treasure, did he? Song Shuhang thought to himself.
Just as he was in deep thought, he had a strange feeling. Then, he turned his head around, and looked toward his upper right.
In the next moment, he saw Venerable White walking in the sky with a smile plastered on his face.
At this time, Venerable White was wearing some simple white-colored clothing and a pair of large sunglasses. He looked very happy.
Song Shuhang quickly called out, “Senior White! It seems you were already coming over!”
Venerable White stopped, and looked in Song Shuhang’s direction. Then, he gently smiled, and said, “Shuhang, how did you know that I have already come out?”
“Ah?” Song Shuhang was confused. Soon after, he said, “Right, Senior White, what about your mobile phone? I called you twice just now, but you didn’t pick up.”
“I didn’t bring the phone with me today,” Venerable White said with a smile. “Were you looking for me?”
“Yes, there was an urgent matter. As you know, we agreed to explore that forbidden area tomorrow… but now, someone raided the Chu Family and stole their sword technique. Those guys want to forestall us and get to the forbidden area first,” Song Shuhang said.
“Tsk, they actually want to steal our stuff? They must be tired of living!” Venerable White clenched his fist, and said, “Let’s head to that forbidden area right now. If we discover the people that tried to forestall us, we’ll kill them all!”
“Senior White, you are especially domineering today,” Song Shuhang said. “Anyway, we should head to the Chu Family first and help them take care of those people that raided them. In addition, if we can meet the ancestor of the Chu Family, even better. He knows the location of the forbidden area, and he even visited that place in the past.”
“Alright, let’s immediately head to the Chu Family, then! After discovering the raiders, we’ll kill them all!” Venerable White said.
“There is no rush. We first need to bring this little friend from the Chu Family to Senior Seven Lives Talisman so that he can treat his injuries, preventing hidden problems from staying behind,” Song Shuhang added.
“It seems you have to do a lot of things.” Venerable White curled up his lips, and said, “No need to go through all that trouble. Let me take a look at his injury.”
Venerable White squatted beside the disciple of the Chu Family, and his eyes shone slightly.
Soon after, he said, “This small injury is very easy to heal. Look at me.”
Venerable White rolled up his sleeve and stretched his little finger, gently poking that disciple of the Chu Family.
He only poked at him, and he seemingly didn’t use any healing technique.
But, in the next moment, the residual sword qi in the body of the disciple was eliminated, and his internal injury recovered at speed visible to the naked eye.
Three breaths later, the disciple of the Chu Family stood up. He had completely recovered, and was now in optimal condition, just as though he had never been injured in the first place.
In addition, the disciple of the Chu Family felt that his realm, which hadn’t advanced in a long time, was now giving signs of advancing.
He felt that as long as he was given a little time, he would be able to break through to the First Stage Fifth Aperture ‘Mouth Aperture’ Realm—and after that would be the First Stage Dragon Gate Realm!
As the saying went: those that had survived a great disaster were destined for good fortune ever after.
The disciple of the Chu Family bowed, and said gratefully, “Senior White, thank you for treating my injury.”
“It was nothing, not any different than lifting a finger,” Venerable White turned toward Song Shuhang, and said smugly, “Alright, now that his injury has been treated, we can head to the Chu Family!”
“Senior White is incredible!” The Western monk gave the thumbs up.
“That’s a given,” Venerable White said.
Song Shuhang pondered for a moment, and said, “In that case, let’s go to the Chu Family. Still, Senior White, didn’t you say that you wanted to head to that forbidden area alongside a few other fellow daoists and members of the Nine Provinces Number One Group?”
“There is no need. We lot are more than enough to explore the forbidden area. As for the other fellow daoists and members, they can go there the next time,” Venerable White said.
“Alright.” Song Shuhang nodded. Then, he said to the Western monk, “Great Master, what about you? Do you want to follow us to that forbidden area?”
The Western monk pondered for a short moment, and shook his head. “I really want to follow Benefactor Song to this forbidden area and take risks, but there is a small matter I need to take care of first. As such, I’m forced to miss this opportunity.”
The Western monk had to return to his sect. He had already reached the Second Stage Realm, and he could be considered Wu Yinzi’s official disciple now. Thereupon, it was time to return to his sect and light his life lamp.
After saying this much, he passed the original copies of the ❮Diary of the Ascetic Senior Monk❯ and ❮Ksitigarbha’s Soul Ferrying Scripture❯ to Song Shuhang.
At the same time, Song Shuhang took out a portion of ‘living spring water’, and gave it to the Western monk.
At first, Song Shuhang was only planning to borrow the two texts to take a look. But in the end, the Western monk decided to trade the original copies of the two texts for a portion of Song Shuhang’s ‘living spring’.
The Western monk didn’t want the living spring for himself, but for his teacher, Daoist Priest Wu Yinzi.
