“Use my own saber intent to root out the sword intent…?” Song Shuhang touched the wound on his forehead. The main problem was that the wound happened to be on his forehead. What if he was careless and ended up injuring his brain while rooting out the sword intent? He would not turn into an idiot, right?
Wasn’t this a bit too risky?
Ye Si covered her mouth and laughed. “You don’t need to be this worried. The sword intent merely left a small wound on your forehead, and it didn’t even injure your skull. While using your saber intent to root it out, you’ll only have to touch the area with the wound. Therefore, your brain won’t get injured.”
Song Shuhang laughed. “Ahahaha.”
Afterward, he took out a blade of Saber Intent Condensing Grass.
He had to seize this opportunity to continue his experiment from before.
While he was in the peripheral area of the forbidden area, he wanted to try if he could create ‘Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds’ by simply holding the ‘Saber Intent Condensing Grass’ in his mouth and using his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill, without the need to swallow down the grass.
If it was possible, he would avoid feeling all that unnecessary pain.
Back then, Venerable White and Venerable Ruhuo had suddenly fallen from the sky, generating a powerful earthquake and a few explosions. As a result, Song Shuhang got a scare and accidentally swallowed down the Saber Intent Condensing Grass. He felt so much pain that even tears flowed out.
Thereupon, he decided to continue the experiment now that he was in his Inner World, where no one could disturb him.
Song Shuhang held the Saber Intent Condensing Grass in his mouth and took a deep breath, preparing to use his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill.
But right at this time, Little Cai suddenly screamed. Her body quickly flew over and slammed into Song Shuhang’s waist.
The virtuous lamia didn’t stop Little Cai because the force behind her ‘attack’ wasn’t big enough to be considered ‘threatening’.
“Ah!” After his waist got hit, Song Shuhang opened his mouth and called out. Then… the Saber Intent Condensing Grass slid down his throat.
Song Shuhang’s eyes started to tear up.
This scene seemed very familiar!
In the next moment, sharp pain was transmitted from his throat, just as though someone had pierced it with a knife! Absolutely tragic!
Song Shuhang grabbed his throat with both hands, and bean-sized tears streamed down his face nonstop. Eating raw Saber Intent Condensing Grass was truly terrific!
While resisting the pain coming from his throat, Song Shuhang quickly operated his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill. Then, with the help of the innate skill, the saber intent in his throat transformed into four lotus flowers. After the lotus flowers withered and disappeared, the various lotus seeds condensed into a larger one.
“Little Cai, what are you doing?” Song Shuhang looked at Little Cai, who was still using her claws to grab at his waist.
“Teacher, it’s not my fault.” Little Cai blinked her eyes. “Everything is that kangaroo’s fault. After waking up and seeing me, it suddenly came over and kicked me with its hind legs, making me fly over here!”
Song Shuhang turned his head around and looked in the distance. That kangaroo-like Fighting Beast had already woken up. It was expressing its goodwill to Song Shuhang, and had the face of someone trying to curry favors.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Then, it rushed over and used its tail and hind legs to hit Song Shuhang.
“Let’s have some kangaroo meat tonight,” Song Shuhang clenched his teeth, and said.
After that, he sighed and put away the Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seed he had just condensed.
“Ye Si, help me up and act as my protector,” Song Shuhang gritted his teeth, and said.
Ye Si covered her mouth and laughed. Then, she grabbed the kangaroo-like Fighting Beast with her left hand and Little Cai with the right one, pulling them away from Song Shuhang.
“I really can’t be free from worries.” Song Shuhang grabbed another blade of Saber Intent Condensing Grass and placed it in his mouth.
Then, he looked all around and made sure that no one would disturb his experiment this time.
Song Shuhang smiled smugly as he operated his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill.
This time around, no one ruined his good deed.
The Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill was activated, and Song Shuhang noticed that the skill extracted all the saber intent within the Saber Intent Condensing Grass, transforming it into the lotus flowers that had appeared before his eyes.
“Success!” The corner of Song Shuhang’s mouth rose.
Such being the case, there was no need for him to swallow down the Saber Intent Condensing Grass again and experience that sharp pain if he wanted to condense out some ‘Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds’. He needed five seconds on average to create a Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seed, and he could condense out several of them within a day if he had enough free time.
“Since I have free time right now, and Senior White has yet to return… I should seize this opportunity to condense out a whole hundred Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds and see if I can grasp my very own saber intent!” Song Shuhang said.
“Are you preparing to eat so many Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds all at one?” Ye Si asked.
“Yes. After all, these lotus seeds are different from pure Saber Intent Condensing Grass. Not only they are delicious, but they don’t have any side effect, either. As long as one feels like it, they can simply treat them as snacks. Even if you eat a thousand of them in one day, there won’t be any problem,” Song Shuhang said.
Thanks to Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s Flaming Saber Technique, he had already reached the threshold of saber intent. Therefore, a hundred Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds should be enough to allow him to comprehend his own saber intent.
Time flew by.
Song Shuhang used his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill nonstop, continuously transforming the blades of Saber Intent Condensing Grass into lotus seeds and storing them inside a small sack.
While transforming the blades of Saber Intent Condensing Grass, Song Shuhang would, from time to time, leave the Inner World and come back immediately afterward; it was for the sake of checking if Senior White had returned.
However, even though he checked a few times, he didn’t find any trace of Senior White. On the other hand, the invisible sword insects had calmed down, and that giant red sword made of invisible sword insects had disappeared.
But, one could still see the sword marks on the ground. The invisible sword insects had left these marks through their sword qi while flying at low-altitude.
Anyway, Senior White was taking a bit too much to gather those ingredients!
“Alright, I have a hundred lotus seeds now!” Song Shuhang threw the last lotus seed into the small sack beside him.
Next, it was time to witness a miracle!
Would he be able to condense his own saber intent after eating a hundred lotus seeds?
Song Shuhang lifted the sack with the Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds.
“Eh? Isn’t the sack a little too light?” Song Shuhang said curiously.
Then, when he opened the small sack and took a look inside… Shiet, what was going on here? He clearly remembered that he had condensed out a hundred Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds. As such, why there were only 20 left at this time?
Where had the other 80 lotus seeds gone?
Ye Si got curious and also came over. “Strange… I, too, saw you perform those actions a hundred times. Why are there only 20 lotus seeds left now?”
“Is it possible that the lotus seeds merged together?” Song Shuhang thought of this other possibility.
Since after his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill evolved, the lotus seeds he could condense had gained the ability to ‘fuse’ with each other. Right now, his Lotus Blossoming Tongue skill could create four lotus flowers at once, which would then leave behind four small lotus seeds. Then, right after taking shape, the four small lotus seeds would fuse into a larger seed.
As such, was it possible that these hundred lotus seeds had done the same?
If that was the case, did it mean that each of these lotus seeds was now equivalent to five ordinary, large-sized lotus seeds?
Song Shuhang pondered for a short while and stretched out his hand into the small sack, took out a lotus seed, and started to eat it.
The flavor of the tasty Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seed permeated his taste buds.
It was delicious.
Then… realizations about ‘saber intent’ resurfaced in his mind.
However, it felt as though the effects of this lotus seed hadn’t been enhanced at all. They were the same as that of an ordinary large-sized lotus seed!
If that was the case, hadn’t he just suffered a great loss?
Song Shuhang turned his head around and looked at the remaining 19 lotus seeds in the sack, falling into deep thought.
But right at this time, a small golden hand extended into the sack and took a Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seed out of it.
The corner of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched.
He raised his head and looked at the owner of the hand.
Then, he saw a calm-looking virtuous lamia hold a Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seed between her fingers, open her mouth, and swallow it down.
After gobbling up the lotus seed, her cold face remained unchanged and expressionless.
“…” Song Shuhang.
“…” Ye Si.
Even if you guarded day and night, you wouldn’t be able to guard against a thief living within your very own house.
Who would have thought that the virtuous lamia would secretly steal the Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds and eat them?
Earlier, not even Ye Si was able to notice the petty actions of the virtuous lamia. The main reason was that she had her body wrapped around Song Shuhang at this moment.
During this process, her posture would change frequently, and Ye Si didn’t pay too much attention to her.
In addition, the petty actions of the virtuous lamia were very covert, and Ye Si couldn’t even see them from her position.
Just in this fashion, 80 of the 100 Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds that Shuhang had condensed out with much difficulty were eaten by the virtuous lamia.
Song Shuhang faintly sighed.
Sure enough, there was something wrong with his golden light of virtue! Whose golden light of virtue would steal things and eat them?!
The golden light of virtue was made from the ‘power of virtue’, and it was essentially the result of a magical technique.
Song Shuhang had no choice but to consider the fact that his magical technique had now developed and transformed into a spirit.
“@#%× ate around 80 Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds. She isn’t going to comprehend saber intent as well, right?” Ye Si said.
Although light of virtue was just a ‘magical technique’, Song Shuhang’s virtuous lamia was clearly different.
“Light of virtue comprehending saber intent? I feel that there is something wrong with this statement.” Song Shuhang forced a smile.
But, just as he was speaking, Fairy @#%× made her move. She took the small sack in Song Shuhang’s hand and poured the entire content in her mouth.
Earlier, she was still covertly stealing the lotus seeds, but now that she had been discovered, she directly went for daylight robbery.
After swallowing all the Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds, the virtuous lamia really started to transform.
A layer of pale silver light resurfaced on her right palm.
The silver light was everchanging.
In the end, a short saber condensed in the hand of the virtuous lamia, and terrifying saber qi exploded from the blade.
The virtuous lamia gently brandished the short silver saber.
In the next moment, an overbearing aura spread from it.
“Saber intent?” Song Shuhang asked Ye Si.
“Yes, that’s indeed saber intent, and very overbearing saber intent at that,” Ye Si said with a nod. At the same time, she stretched out her hand and pointed toward a distant place, where Little Cai and the Fighting Beast were lying.
The monster bird and the spirit beast weakly lay the ground after the virtuous lamia brandished the short saber.
Little Cai had unfurled her wings as her weak body lay on the floor.
The Fighting Beast had likewise lost its mobility and was lying on its back, with its tail twitching.
As soon as that short saber materialized, a tyrannical saber intent spread in the surrounding area. The saber intent was overbearing and capable of capturing one’s soul.
In other words, it was a type of kingly saber intent. When this saber intent was used, people with weak will would have no choice but to lower their heads.
Ye Si was Song Shuhang’s ghost spirit, and from a certain point of view, she, Song Shuhang, and the virtuous lamia were one single entity. As such, she wasn’t affected by this overbearing saber intent.
“She really comprehended saber intent!” Song Shuhang sighed.
Light of virtue learning saber intent… scary, wasn’t it?
After learning a formidable cultivation technique someday in the future, the virtuous lamia was truly going to be beyond godlike.
The virtuous lamia tilted her head and looked at the short silver saber in her hand. As before, her face was still expressionless.
After a short moment, she put the short silver saber away, and the tyrannical saber intent disappeared.
Then, she kept wrapping her body around Song Shuhang, continuously changing her posture and acting as if she had never stolen those Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds or comprehended saber intent.
“Can the virtuous lamia get rid of that sword intent that has taken root in my forehead?” Song Shuhang asked. At the same time, he issued the virtuous lamia an order.
After receiving Song Shuhang’s order, the virtuous lamia stopped moving. Soon after, she bent down, positioning her upper half body on the same level as Song Shuhang’s.
Next, the short silver saber reappeared in her hand. She then aimed the saber at Song Shuhang’s forehead and started to gesticulate, seemingly wondering how she should slash down.
Song Shuhang said, “F*ck.”
The virtuous lamia wasn’t planning to pierce his forehead with the saber to eradicate the sword intent, right?
“Stop, stop, stop,” Song Shuhang called out.
Sure enough, it was better to create more Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds and comprehend his own saber intent if he wanted to root out that sword intent!
Or directly wait for Venerable White’s return and ask him to get rid of the sword intent in his stead.
“Ye Si, I’m going to condense out another batch of Saber Intent Condensing Lotus Seeds. This time, I’ll give the seeds to you so that you can safeguard them,” Song Shuhang said.
It was to prevent the virtuous lamia from stealing them again.
@#%× tilted her head and quietly floated behind Song Shuhang. She kept changing her posture while maintaining her poker face.
Ye Si looked at the actions of the virtuous lamia… was it just her misconception? Because she felt as though @#%× was practicing a cultivation technique while continuously changing her posture…
In the meantime.
Senior White was holding a large box in his left hand as he smugly looked at the vehicle beside him.
After gathering the ingredients needed for the ‘First Stage beast food’, Senior White got out of his treasure house and passed by a shop that sold vehicles. There, a passenger vehicle immediately caught his eye.
It was a limousine-like passenger vehicle, more than ten meters long.
To be honest, it looked somewhat ugly, but Venerable White found it really interesting.
When he saw this vehicle, many ideas on how to modify it popped up in his head.
Thereupon, Senior White made up his mind and decided to buy the vehicle.
Finally, as for not being able to drive modified vehicles on public roads… it wasn’t really a problem for high-level cultivators.
“I feel that this vehicle suits me a lot,” Venerable White said, very pleased.
