Hundreds of sword insects with malicious intentions were quietly approaching Song Shuhang.
At this moment, Song Shuhang’s quick-witted invisible saber insect sensed its ‘peers’.
“Buzz, buzz, buzz,” the saber insect urgently called out to warn Song Shuhang.
[Hm? The sword insects are approaching?] Song Shuhang suddenly got a toothache.
Sigh, what he had feared actually came true.
A second ago, he was worrying about the invisible sword insects chasing him down, and now, the invisible sword insects were really approaching him.
“How unlucky.” Song Shuhang sighed. Had he known earlier, he wouldn’t have played this ‘ride the flying saber’ game—at least not until Senior White was back.
“Let’s hurry and get back to Ye Si!” Song Shuhang said.
Let’s see if I’m able to hold off these invisible sword insects if I join forces with Ye Si…
If it didn’t work, he’d just take Ye Si and run. As long as they were able to escape to the Inner World, the invisible sword insects would no longer be able to deal with them.
The invisible saber insect sped up, whizzing toward Ye Si alongside Song Shuhang.
At that same time, Ye Si took out her life-bound golden book and moved the virtuous lamia and the kangaroo-like Fighting Beast onto it, flying towards Song Shuhang. She was his ghost spirit, and their thoughts were interlinked. Thus, after Song Shuhang discovered he was in a precarious situation, she sensed it as well.
Ye Si got closer to Song Shuhang and allowed him to get on the golden book. Afterward, she turned around and fled toward the place where the golden disc was.
“How many invisible sword insects are following us?” Ye Si asked out loud.
If there weren’t that many sword insects, she and Song Shuhang could try to fight them together.
Song Shuhang gently patted the invisible saber insect, and asked, “How many invisible sword insects are there? And, where are they currently?”
Dealing with invisible enemies really gave you a headache.
Fortunately, his invisible saber insect could see the other sword insects, and they wouldn’t fall into a difficult position.
The invisible saber insect: “Buzz, buzz, buzz???”
This time, the saber insect was full of questions as it couldn’t understand Song Shuhang’s question. After all, it had just been born, and wasn’t able to understand relatively complex questions.
“Where are your peers at this moment?” Song Shuhang asked again.
“Buzz, buzz, buzz!” The invisible saber insect finally answered Song Shuhang’s question.
[Have we been surrounded already?] Song Shuhang’s liver started hurting. The speed of the invisible sword insects was truly incredible, even faster than Ye Si’s golden book.
“We’ve been surrounded,” Song Shuhang said.
Ye Si said, “I’ll create a defensive barrier in a three-meter-radius around the golden book. When I do that, Shuhang, you operate the ‘Flaming Saber Technique’ to send an attack in all directions and see how many invisible sword insects there are. If there’s too many of them, we’ll immediately flee.”
“I’ll do my best.” Song Shuhang swallowed a true qi restoring pill. He had consumed a lot of energy when he was beating the ‘invisible saber insect’ earlier. At this moment, his meridians were still swollen and in pain, and he had no idea how many times he could use the Flaming Saber Technique.
“Right, does your phone have a signal right now? Perhaps try to log in to the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ and ask the seniors if there is any fellow daoist that knows how to deal with these invisible sword insects,” Ye Si asked.
“You have a point,” Song Shuhang said.
Thereupon, he opened his size-reducing purse and prepared to take his phone out.
“Hold on. I’ve already asked this question in the Nine Provinces Number One Group, and I’m waiting for the seniors to reply.” At this time, Lady Onion’s voice was transmitted from within the size-reducing purse.
Song Shuhang paused, and nodded. “So what did the seniors say?”
Lady Onion seemed to be getting more and more attentive, making herself helpful at critical times.
Still… how did Lady Onion know the password to unlock his phone?
“Up until now, only Senior Northern River has replied, but he only said that he will go look for some information. None of the other seniors have replied,” Lady Onion said.
She spent all day inside the size-reducing purse, and she should have been very bored. Fortunately, there were now things like smartphones, and she could go online to watch movies. She also had several cultivation-related medicinal pills next to her, and she could practice while binge-watching TV series. As such, she wasn’t really that bored in the end.
Still… what about the phone’s password?
Sigh, Song Shuhang was as foolish as ever. In the capacity of a small monster onion that always followed him around, none of his actions could escape her eyes. Let alone his phone’s password… she even knew the password to Shuhang’s online wallet.
Lady Onion was only waiting for Song Shuhang to return to school and stop running about everywhere. At that time, she would finally try to buy things online using Song Shuhang’s account.
Meanwhile, in the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Lady Onion was using Song Shuhang’s account to ask the seniors for some help with regards to the invisible sword insects.
Tyrannical Saber Song One: “Help: One lone Shuhang was surrounded by a group of sword insects, the scene is a bloody one! Does any of the seniors have any suggestions?
Sword Insect Sword Insect Sword Insect
Sword Insect [Shuhang] Sword Insect
Sword Insect Sword Insect Sword Insect
This is how the current situation looks. This is urgent.”
Not too long ago, Song Shuhang had changed his name in the group to ‘Tyrannical Saber Song One’. After that, he had never taken the time to change it back. Recently, his daoist name in the group had been Tyrannical Saber Song One.
The first to respond was Northern River’s Loose Cultivator.
Right, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator had also changed his daoist name.
His current daoist name in the group was True Monarch Northern River, which did indeed sound better than Northern River’s Loose Cultivator.
But regardless of whether his name was Northern River’s Loose Cultivator or True Monarch Northern River, he continued to be the Nine Provinces Number One Group’s always-online holy warrior.
True Monarch Northern River: “…One lone Shuhang?”
Tyrannical Saber Song One: “Replying to Senior Northern River, this is Lady Onion using Song Shuhang’s account. That lone Song Shuhang is currently surrounded by invisible sword insects, and isn’t able to get online.
“So that was the case.” True Monarch Northern River said, “Anyway, I haven’t had much contact with invisible sword insects. I do, however, seem to remember having seen the travel records of a cultivator who had encountered and dealt with them. I’ll go look for it.”
Tyrannical Saber Song One: “Do hurry up, Senior Northern River. Whether or not Song Shuhang will be cut up into pieces by those invisible sword insects depends on the speed at which you are able to reply.”
True Monarch Northern River: “…”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “This scene is simply bloody!”
True Monarch Fallout: “Truly bloody, indeed!”
Fairy Lychee: “Bloody +1”
Fairy Dongfang Six: “Lady Onion, tell Song Shuhang to use ocular techniques!” Fairy Dongfang Six was well versed in the ❮Nine Bewitching Dance Steps❯, and the signature of this move, the ‘Bewitching Eyes’, excelled in breaking illusions.
“Fairy Dongfang, Song Shuhang doesn’t have any ocular techniques, and his Eye Aperture’s talent can only achieve a ‘bullet time’ effect, which isn’t any good for seeing invisible sword insects,” Lady Onion replied.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “Speaking of invisible sword insects, I’ve always wondered something. Even though they aren’t perceivable through a cultivator’s sight or mental energy, they do still exist, right? Since they’re physical entities, can’t you just pour a bucket of dye or sprinkle some powder on them to reveal their positions? Even if their ability to become invisible is outstanding, it still shouldn’t be able to turn the dye invisible as well, right?”
Tyrant Flood Dragon wants to father a football team: “Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless’ idea is feasible.”
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da: “[Picture of a cute puppy].”
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da: [Picture of the head of a dog being furiously rubbed— wait a moment!].
Sun Splitting Halberd Guo Da: “This can’t be right, you’re definitely not Thrice Reckless! Who are you, and by what means did you steal Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s account? Are you Senior Spirit Butterfly? Senior Spirit Butterfly, are you using Brother Thrice Reckless’ account to chat with us?”
How could our Thrice Reckless actually be this smart? He unexpectedly brought out such a sensible suggestion!
This was definitely not Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.
If it was the real Thrice Reckless Mad Saber, he would certainly say something like: [Oh, there’s a group of invisible sword insects? It would be a great experience to feel the thrill of being chased down by them.]
“Indeed, you’re Senior Spirit Butterfly, right? ” Fairy Dongfang Six agreed.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “It has to be Senior Spirit Butterfly. He indeed has the hobby of using another’s account to get online and chat with us.”
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “…”
Thrice Reckless suddenly felt depressed. Although I have the tendency to seek death, it doesn’t mean that I have a low IQ as well, alright? Am I actually a joke to you guys?
“Fellow Daoist Phoenix Slayer, you are mistaken. This old man doesn’t have the hobby of using someone else’s account to chat online.” Venerable Spirit Butterfly suddenly sent a message.
Besides his daughter Soft Feather’s account, he didn’t log in to other people’s accounts.
Fairy Tribulation Transcender (Soft Feather): “I can testify for my father. It was Senior Thrice Reckless who sent the message. I was beside him when he sent it.”
At this point, True Monarch Northern River had come back. “Everyone, don’t panic. That should be the real Thrice Reckless. Actually, Thrice Reckless is really smart. Don’t forget that it was Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless that invented the charging technique shared within the Nine Provinces Number One Group.”
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was actually a very creative person.
“In addition, Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless’ method seems indeed feasible. Lady Onion, why don’t you tell little friend Song Shuhang to try it out?” True Monarch Northern River said. “But keep in mind that invisible sword insects have a layer of sword qi protecting their body. When using Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless’ method, be sure to break through the sword qi first.”
“I understand. I’ll go and tell Song Shuhang what to do,” Lady Onion replied.
After that, Lady Onion raised her head, and recounted the method that was suggested by Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber in the group just now.
As for whether Song Shuhang could find anything that could be used like dye or powder, it was no longer Lady Onion’s problem.
After recounting everything, Lady Onion prepared to shut down the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ and get back to watching the TV series she was binging.
But right at this time, Fairy Tribulation Transcender (Soft Feather) wrote in the group: “Senior Song, where are you right now? Aren’t you with Senior White? How come you are alone and surrounded by invisible sword insects?”
“Right. Little Friend Shuhang, wasn’t Venerable White with you?” True Monarch Northern River also remembered this matter.
“Senior White left a while ago and headed to his treasure house to get ingredients to make the ordinary First Stage beast food. But, he has yet to come back,” Lady Onion answered using Song Shuhang’s account.
