Chapter 1569: Hehe~
“Doudou, do you think that Young Master Hai will understand what I just sent?” Song Shuhang said to Doudou after sending the message.
…It had been quite a while since he’d last seen Young Master Hai, so after getting his contact information and finding out that the other party had yet to transcend their Fifth Stage heavenly tribulation, he was quite happy.
Doudou responded, “Woof, I don’t think that he’ll understand it. Also, what you sent just now was too showy. In a TV series, such a complacent character generally wouldn’t survive two episodes.”
Song Shuhang hurriedly said, “Doudou, don’t jinx it. My resurrection cooldown is still up. There should be two more days before it goes off cooldown.”
Why are you keeping track of the cooldown on your resurrection magical treasures? Are you actually planning on dying once your resurrection magical treasures go off cooldown?
Doudou felt that Song Shuhang’s train of thought had derailed quite a bit recently.
Song Shuhang stared at the phone, and asked, “Why hasn’t Young Master Hai responded yet?”
Doudou replied, “Why not give him a call?”
“Let’s wait first. I want to see how he replies to me,” Song Shuhang said. “I’ll give him a minute. If he still hasn’t replied by then, I’ll call him.”
In a blood valley in China.
Young Master Hai held his phone, his handsome brows furrowed.
The message that had been sent from Demon Monarch Anzhi’s phone was definitely not sent by Demon Monarch Anzhi.
Anzhi wouldn’t send a message in such a tone.
Moreover, what the hell is with these ‘five golden cores’? And, the first and second cores have nine dragon patterns? What does that mean? Could it be that someone has managed to condense two golden cores?
They’ve got to be kidding.
Even if someone really did come across a heaven-defying encounter, and managed to produce two golden cores, it should absolutely be impossible for them both to have nine dragon patterns.
That being said, who had sent this message?
A sense of anxiety built up in Young Master Hai’s heart.
Anzhi’s phone had fallen into someone else’s hand, and was unlocked.
This meant that Demon Monarch Anzhi was in a very precarious situation at the moment… and Young Master Hai had no clue whether this problem came up before it began transcending its tribulation or after.
He didn’t like such types of trouble that were completely out of his control.
However, the world was ever-changing; even if he put a lot of time and effort into his calculations, there would always be things that he left out.
Young Master Hai calmly replied, “Who are you?”
Anxiety was an unnecessary emotion.
No matter how anxious he was, it was impossible for him to crawl through the phone to save Demon Monarch Anzhi. What he needed to do was stay calm, and use his wisdom to find a way to save Demon Monarch Anzhi.
Song Shuhang quickly replied, “Your old friend.”
Young Master Hai rubbed his temples. He thought, Since they said that they were an old friend… It must be an old enemy.
He recalled the figures he had offended in recent years.
If they call themself an ‘old friend’, then our relationship must go back by at least five or six years, right? However, this person on the other side of the phone doesn’t match any of my ‘old friends’.
Young Master Hai calmly said, “Where is Anzhi?”
Song Shuhang replied, “Still alive for the time being.”
Young Master Hai said, “I understand… After some time, I will personally come to bring Fellow Daoist Anzhi back. Let us meet then, old friend.”
For Young Master Hai, the most important thing at the moment was to transcend his own tribulation. No matter what happened, he could not let anything ruin the timing of his tribulation.
In addition, although Demon Monarch Anzhi’s safety was very important… he would not bet on having Demon Monarch Anzhi save him should he be in danger. After all, they were demonic cultivators, and they were definitely ones to break agreements.
If he could save Demon Monarch Anzhi, then he would do his best to do so. Demon Monarch Anzhi still had some value to him… But if he couldn’t do so, he would give up immediately.
That’s all? This guy has nothing else to say? Song Shuhang quickly wrote: “What do you feel about the five golden cores with two having nine dragon patterns that I just mentioned?”.
Young Master Hai: “Hehe.”
Song Shuhang asked, “You don’t believe it?”
Young Master Hai: “Hehe.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Just like that, the chat ended with a “Hehe”.
A long time ago, the word “hehe” would suggest an amiable laugh. However, at some point, the meaning of the word had unknowingly changed.
In fact, it wasn’t only the word “hehe” whose meaning had changed recently. There were also words such as “GG”, which now had a completely different meaning than originally.
“At times like these, you just need to leave it to me.” Doudou took Demon Monarch Anzhi’s phone, and quickly replied, “Hehe your mom!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
“Haha! How refreshing. Let’s see if he continues to send those hehes.” Doudou handed the phone back to Song Shuhang. “Destroy this phone. I feel that Young Master Hai definitely has a way to lock onto its location.”
“Then let him lock onto it.” Song Shuhang laughed, and threw the phone into his Inner World.
After the phone was placed in the Inner World, if Young Master Hai could still lock onto its location, then good for him.
Speaking of locking onto things, Song Shuhang thought of locking onto Young Master Hai’s phone himself…Unfortunately, Young Master Hai’s phone had been magically modified, and could not be locked onto through ordinary methods.
After putting away Demon Monarch Anzhi’s phone, Song Shuhang said, “Right, I should try using Demon Monarch Anzhi to lure Young Master Hai over.”
Doudou responded, “Don’t get your hopes up. With Young Master Hai’s character, even if he did appear, he would definitely use things like puppets or clones to do his business. That guy would definitely not place his main body in danger.”
Song Shuhang said, “That’s true, that guy is definitely resourceful… Looks like I’m slightly out of luck.”
Then, should he just wait for him to ascend to the Fifth Stage before fighting him?
As he was also at the Fifth Stage, a Fifth Stage vs Fifth Stage fight would be considered fair.
Doudou and Song Shuhang began to gather the medicinal pills and spirit stones left behind by Demon Monarch Anzhi.
Song Shuhang said, “By the way, are there no problems with these pills?”
Doudou replied, “There’s basically no problem with them. But for the sake of safety, would you like to bring them to Stupid Yellow Mountain and have him check them?”
“Senior Yellow Mountain lives too far. We’ve got some seniors close by, there’s no need to look for him.” Song Shuhang brought out Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword.
…There was no need to reject what was near at hand and seek what was far away, and it should not be forgotten that his Inner World was where several of his seniors were currently residing.
He should make good use of these seniors.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword, are there any problems with these pills and spirit stones? Can Doudou and I eat them directly?”
Scarlet Heaven Sword’s body leaned over to scan the medicinal pills. “There isn’t any problem with them; you can consume them right away. However, it would be best for you to trade these with demonic cultivators as these medicinal pills are most suitable for those of that system.”
“Then, when the time comes, we can look for Fairy Dongfang Six and trade with her.” Doudou stored the pills first.
Song Shuhang got up and stretched his body. “It’s getting late. Let’s go back.”
Before heading back, they needed to look for a way to cover up the tribulation-transcending formation.
With Shuhang’s basic illusion techniques, trying to hide this tribulation formation wasn’t really possible… Fortunately, there was already an illusion formation laid down by Demon Monarch Anzhi earlier. With a little fixing up, it should be able to manage for some time.
Song Shuhang opened the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’.
Earlier, his clone had already reported what happened to the seniors in the group.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: “Little friend Shuhang, so you really barged into the heavenly tribulation and killed Demon Monarch Anzhi?”
Song Shuhang replied, “A heavenly tribulation of the Fifth Stage isn’t that powerful. I can still endure it.”
“…” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.
Song Shuhang squeezed his chin. Now, how should I deal with that ‘tribulation-transcending formation’?
“Is any senior in the group interested in a tribulation-transcending formation? Its effects are great, and the six demon god pillars are very effective against the heavenly tribulation.” Shuhang felt that he was very much like a salesman at this time.
Fairy Dongfang Six: “Take a full picture of it and show it to me. If it is a formation for demonic cultivators, I am probably the only one in the group that is interested.”
Cave Lord Snow Wolf: “Take a picture and let us take a look. There are some formations for demonic cultivators that have many similarities to those for monster cultivators. After some modifications, it might also be usable by monster cultivators.”
“Got it.” Song Shuhang grabbed his phone, and went up into the air. He then took a few photos of the formation, and sent them to the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
“Oh, this formation is quite creative,” Fairy Dongfang Six said. “There should be great amounts of evil qi beneath this formation. This evil qi should then be drawn out by the six demon god pillars before being mixed with spiritual qi to go against the heavenly tribulation. If it had been before the heavenly tribulation changed, as long as the strength of the demonic cultivator was decent, they should have had more than 60% chance at successfully transcending their Fifth Stage tribulation by relying on this formation.”
“That thing in Doudou’s mouth… is that a Blood God Crystal? That thing isn’t bad,” Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman said with a smile. He had previously exchanged for one from Song Shuhang.
This Blood God Crystal was originally placed in the large formation, but Doudou had taken it away.
“Let us do some research on this formation first so that we can see whether we can use it. If not, I’ll go and ask some demonic cultivators to see if they’re interested. At that time, I’ll try to get you a good price as well,” Fairy Dongfang Six said, and then joked, “But when the time comes, don’t forget to give me an intermediary fee.”
Song Shuhang smiled, and replied, “Okay, I will make sure to give Fairy Dongfang a big gift at that time.”
Song Shuhang and Doudou repaired the illusion formation that was by the tribulation-transcending formation.
Afterward, all of the spirit stones buried in the tribulation-transcending formation were taken out, leaving the formation in a dormant state.
After getting back to the Medicine Master building, Song Shuhang softly said, “Another fulfilling day.”
Doudou nodded slightly—it was the right choice to follow Song Shuhang.
I got to drive an immortal boat last night, and today I got to take revenge on Demon Monarch Anzhi. Now, I’m happy both physically and mentally.
And so, night fell.
Besides Demon Monarch Anzhi’s incident, nothing else of note happened the rest of the day.
Song Shuhang concluded the day’s meditation. Afterward, he got up and went to the window to look at the night sky.
The tranquil night sky made Song Shuhang relaxed physically and mentally.
Monday, October 21st, 1:00 AM. It was already the beginning of a new day.
Song Shuhang softly said, “Today should be a peaceful day.”
“Woof, Shuhang, have you gone to sleep?” At this moment, Doudou’s voice came from outside the room, his voice a little anxious.
Song Shuhang asked, “No, what’s the matter?”
Doudou replied, “I think… I have to make a trip to that tribulation-transcending formation.”
“What’s wrong?” Song Shuhang opened the door.
Doudou’s face was filled with bitterness. “Well, my heavenly tribulation is coming.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
“After watching Demon Monarch Anzhi transcend his tribulation during the day, I felt something in my heart. After I got back, I practiced a bit and had a sudden inspiration. My strength increased slightly, and now there’s no longer any stopping my heavenly tribulation from coming.” Doudou’s heart was stifled.
