“Buzz, buzz, buzz!” The invisible saber insect immediately warned Song Shuhang.
“Huh? The invisible sword insects got up?” Song Shuhang said, surprised. These insects were able to recover so quickly from the song of the Soul King? They actually had such a strong resistance to Dharma King Creation’s voice?
Even Song Shuhang himself couldn’t bear the Dharma King’s voice, becoming weak all over and wanting to vomit despite having blocked off his hearing.
“Buzz, buzz, buzz!” the invisible saber insect called out once again.
Right after the invisible sword insects recovered, they gathered to launch another attack on Song Shuhang and Ye Si.
“Ding, ding, ding, ding!”
Ye Si’s defensive barrier was simultaneously struck a hundred times by the insects; the second layer of the defensive barrier began to falter.
“Shuhang, the song didn’t work?” Ye Si asked.
“It’s fine. Even if the invisible sword insects were able to recover from the song, just let them listen to it a few more times!” Song Shuhang raised his phone. “I was smart enough to record Dharma King Creation’s song just now. Ye Si, continue to block my hearing, and get the saber insect and the Fighting Beast to come into the soundproof barrier.”
“No problem, leave it to me,” Ye Si said.
Song Shuhang gritted his teeth and played the recording of Dharma King Creation’s song. He then brought out a physical strength restoration pill from his spatial bracelet and swallowed it.
After having listened to Senior Creation’s voice, his entire body seemed to have been emptied out… He even had to take some medicine to aid himself.
Finally, Song Shuhang hit the play button on his phone and set the volume to max.
[A new song for my fan little friend Shuhang.]
[Yo! Yo! Check it out!]
[The song of nature~ Yeah!]
Dharma King Creation’s voice spread from the phone. The lethality of the recording was, of course, weaker than that of Dharma King Creation directly singing directly through the phone, but it was a deadly weapon nevertheless.
“Buzz, buzz, buzz~” The invisible sword insects attacking Ye Si’s defensive barrier stopped. The physical strength they had recovered with much difficulty was now being drained once again.
The sword insects that were the closest to the defensive barrier fell on the ground and rolled around, struggling in pain with foam forming at their mouths as they fainted.
However, the sword insects that were a distance away from Song Shuhang seemed to be undergoing strange changes.
Their eyes began to become redder and redder, seemingly being influenced by Dharma King Creation’s singing and becoming more and more excited.
These sword insects that were far away no longer continued to surround Song Shuhang. They began to gather together instead.
Each sword insect stuck to another, compressing themselves to fit more tightly together. Their eyes continued to become redder and redder, and their body also seemed to have begun vibrating together with Dharma King Creation’s singing.
Had Soft Feather been there, she would have definitely been very happy. After all, she would have found some kindred spirits!
After sensing the power of Dharma King Creation’s music, the somewhat distant invisible sword insects got stimulated and went into a frenzy. However, the frenzy they entered due to the singing did not make them lose their reason and make them start attacking indiscriminately; instead, they instinctively gathered together.
“I’ve got a bad feeling about this,” Song Shuhang said, using his mind to directly communicate with Ye Si.
“Same here,” Ye Si replied. At that same moment, she pointed into the distance. “I’m getting a frightening feeling from something over there, it’s making me feel crept out.”
Ye Si’s voice had just fallen when uncanny red light suddenly appeared in the area she was pointing toward. The light was apparently made of red, bean-sized dots that had condensed in what seemed to be a giant sword.
At this moment, the invisible saber insect anxiously called out, “Buzz~”
“You’re saying that each of those red dots is an invisible sword insect, and they’ve now gathered together?!” Song Shuhang said in surprise.
The red dots were the eyes of the invisible sword insects.
Each red dot was rhythmically shaking, synchronized with the frequency of the vibration that was coming from the phone held in Song Shuhang’s hand.
“These guys are shaking along with Senior Creation’s song?” Song Shuhang had a bad feeling about this.
Did Dharma King Creation’s music no longer have any effect on these invisible sword insects?
As time continued to pass, more and more invisible sword insects kept fusing with that ‘giant sword’. The number of red dots in the giant sword continued to grow, with the sword qi of the invisible sword insects also merging together.
The sword insects all originated from the same source, so when the sword qi born from their body merged together, there wasn’t any conflict between it.
At this time, Dharma King Creation’s performance had reached the climax.
The singing had become hoarse.
And at that point, the giant sword made of the invisible sword insects rose up high. Then, it came chopping down towards Song Shuhang!
[While our background music is playing, we have no equals! —An invisible sword insect.]
“Inner World!” Song Shuhang roared.
The sword was too terrifying, so terrifying that it made Ye Si’s scalp go numb as she had not a single shred of confidence in being able to take that strike.
When else would be a better time to escape than now?
The Inner World had long been prepared, so when Song Shuhang roared, Song Shuhang and the others were instantly dragged into it.
However, just as they were dragged into the Inner World, the giant sword chopped down, with the sword qi slashing at Ye Si’s defensive barrier.
The defensive barrier was shattered in an instant. Yet, the giant sword and the sword qi were unable to reach Song Shuhang and the others.
However… although the sword qi didn’t reach them, the ‘sword intent’ ignored the limits of space, and suddenly sliced at Song Shuhang’s forehead.
Song Shuhang’s body had already been transferred to the Inner World, but that ‘intent’ had still chased him down and struck him.
The virtuous lamia appeared beside Song Shuhang, and completely wrapped him up.
The majority of the ‘sword intent’ was warded off by the virtuous lamia.
But even so, a small streak of sword intent that got through the virtuous lamia and cut Song Shuhang’s forehead.
Song Shuhang’s forehead now had a small cut on it.
“Shuhang, are you alright?” Ye Si asked.
Song Shuhang shook his head. “I’m alright, it’s only a small wound. What was that thing just now?”
The giant sword itself and the sword qi had obviously been blocked, but there was still an indescribable force that was able to reach his body.
“It was sword intent, but definitely not your ordinary sword intent. That sword intent was able to ignore the limits of space and lock you down, chasing you until here,” Ye Si said.
Song Shuhang touched the wound on his forehead. “This is ‘sword intent’? It seems to be really different from the ‘saber intent’ I know.”
Song Shuhang had been able to understand saber intent, specifically the [Heavenly Burning Saber Intent] that he had learned from Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven. When Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven chopped down with his saber, the saber intent within had the power to burn the heavens and the seas, as well as all the things in the universe.
When Song Shuhang took a ‘Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seed’, he was also able to comprehend some of his own ‘saber intent’. But, his saber intent hadn’t been successfully formed yet, and even he himself had no idea as to what its final form would be.
Just now, the ‘sword intent’ of the invisible sword insects that merged together and chopped down gave him a feeling of ‘vastness’. Being faced with such a sword felt like he was facing an entire ‘legion’.
“There are many different kinds of sword intent or saber intent. Even the personality of each cultivator being different from another can bring about a new type of sword intent, and the same goes for saber intent,” Ye Si explained. “For example, sword intent. Some people comprehend it through heaven and earth, grasping a sword intent as vast as the sky; others comprehend it by meditating by the sea, grasping a sword intent as vast as the sea; others are born as soldiers, which allows them to grasp a deadly sword intent; others are born as kings, and it is then not strange for them to grasp a sword intent with a king’s resolve. The only limit is your imagination. Your sword or saber intent will be as big as your resolve. Just as there is not a single pair of same leaves in the world, there is no exact same saber or sword intent.”
“I see.” Song Shuhang nodded.
From what Ye Si said, those powerful cultivator used their own experiences as a base to grasp their saber intent or sword intent…
But, as soon Song Shuhang recalled his life experiences… he couldn’t recall anything. After all, he had just been cultivating for a few months.
As such, what kind of saber intent would he be able to grasp?
Among his various daoist names was Thrice Song Tyrannical Saber—ugh, Tyrannical Saber Song One! Therefore, would his saber intent be tyrannical?
For example, when slowly pulling out his saber, his tyrannical saber intent would explode, scaring the enemy out of their wits?
No, no, being tyrannical would probably lead him to an early death.
It was decided—these days, he’d eat a lot of Saber Intent Condensing Grass and get more ‘Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds’ so that he’d be able to condense out his saber intent earlier.
After experiencing the power of ‘sword intent’, Song Shuhang was now greatly looking forward to his own ‘saber intent’.
“Anyway, I was lucky that the virtuous lamia was here. If she hadn’t blocked the strike, the sword intent would have hit my forehead, and I would be a goner. Alright, virtuous lamia, you go back first,” Song Shuhang said.
The virtuous lamia blinked at Song Shuhang, and then returned into his body.
As soon as the virtuous lamia disappeared, Song Shuhang suddenly cried out, “Aaaaaah!”
There was an unbearable pain coming from between his eyebrows.
It was the wound that the invisible sword insects had left behind—the sword intent within had suddenly started creating trouble.
…Earlier, the virtuous lamia had Song Shuhang wrapped up, and the light of virtue was suppressing the sword intent. Now that the light of virtue had retreated within Song Shuhang, the sword intent immediately burst out.
Song Shuhang felt as if he was facing a large army alone. Then, the army launched its attack against him, with every soldier of the said army having imposing sword intent.
The virtuous lamia came out on its own initiative and wrapped around Song Shuhang.
In the next moment, the sword intent in Song Shuhang’s forehead was suppressed again.
But, he could sense the sword intent had still not dissipated. It felt as though it had rooted itself in Song Shuhang’s forehead, desiring to stay there.
Song Shuhang looked at Ye Si. “Ye Si, can I still be saved?”
“When Venerable White gets back, he should be able to remove sword intent of this level for you.” Ye Si thought for a while, then said, “Also, try to comprehend your own saber intent, you should be able to use your saber intent to destroy this wisp of sword intent.”
