Chapter 1921: I’m not Doudou
True Monarch Eternal Fire held a spirit stone in his hand. “Does he not want to be paid?”
Song Shuhang looked at the spirit stone in Senior Eternal Fire’s hand, and discovered another way to make money. “Senior Eternal Fire, could you send me that APP you used to call for a driver? I want to register an account on it. Afterward, I’ll take some time to practice driving immortal boats and immortal shuttles. Once I’m good enough, I could probably take on a few orders.”
Fairy Creation stretched out her hands and planted Song Shuhang’s body into the ground—with a little force, Song Shuhang’s feet were inserted into the ground.
“Stop dreaming, Shuhang.” Senior Turtle stood up and patted Song Shuhang lightly with its forelegs. “You’re afraid of both heights and speed, what kind of shuttle are you planning on driving? More importantly, you don’t have the time to take orders. Trust me, it would do you better to just develop your Inner World into an amusement park with me. In this world, women and children are the ones who are the best at spending money, an amusement park would be perfect for raking in money.”
“When my clone comes back, I can have it drive for me,” Song Shuhang said while pinching his chin.
The black-skinned Scarlet Heaven Sword responded, “Seriously, stop dreaming. You really don’t have the time. If you did, you might as well go and work for a big shot, you’ll probably even earn more.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Now that he thought about it carefully, he actually had a lot of ways to make money.
What he lacked were not projects that he could attend to, but the time to attend to them.
“You’re all paying attention to the wrong thing here.” Sister White Dragon behind Su Clan’s Sixteen sighed, and said, “There seems to be quite a problem with the cultivator who has driven us here. When we reached the scholarly faction, he disappeared just like that. Are you not afraid that he has broken in and committed crimes in the scholarly faction?”
Even she had not noticed when the other party had disappeared. This caused Sister White Dragon to become guarded.
True Monarch Eternal Fire suddenly said softly, “The one who was driving just now was also a disciple of the scholarly faction. Although he deliberately hid it, I could sense the aura of the scholarly faction on his body.”
The True Monarch put away the spirit stone in his hand, and said, “Let’s go. Let me show you around the scholarly faction first. Allow me to properly welcome you to the scholarly faction once more.”
Lady Onion said, “Senior White still hasn’t recovered… Senior White in a daze looks so beautiful.”
“Leave that to me.” Song Shuhang stepped forward and lifted the shuttle directly. “I’ll carry it in.”
Speaking of which… When he had come to the scholarly faction’s White Cloud Academy previously, Senior White also seemed to be in a sleeping state. Senior White had lain in a cocoon and refused to wake up. In the end, Song Shuhang had to carry the cocoon into White Cloud Academy.
History really did always seem to repeat itself.
True Monarch Eternal Fire took Song Shuhang and his party into White Cloud Academy, and arrived at White Cloud City.
Fortunately, there was no invasion crisis due to demons of the Netherworld this time, and the air above White Cloud City was not filled with puppets defending it, so there was no flying sword limit today.
Coupled with the fact that most of the scholarly faction’s disciples had now moved to the world of the golden lotus, the flow of people in White Cloud Academy had decreased significantly, and it was clearly much more desolate compared to before.
Along the way, the scholarly faction disciples that they met would bow and greet True Monarch Eternal Fire.
True Monarch Eternal Fire was currently the one in charge of the world of the golden lotus, and was very popular in the scholarly faction.
When their group arrived at the square, Song Shuhang raised his head to look at the statues of the scholarly faction’s 13 Tribulation Transcenders.
These 13 statues all had different temperaments. There was one that was gentle and elegant and another that was as noble as bamboo. There was one that was high-spirited, one that was unfettered, one that was bubbly and handsome, and one that was a delicate beauty.
The materials used to make each statue were also different. One was carved from jade, while another was made using ordinary bluestone. There was a statue that was red all over, and one that had its body pure white without the slightest blemish.
Just like last time, Song Shuhang’s gaze fell on the statue that had an exquisite and lustrous body that was also transparent.
It was this lustrous scholar who borrowed his ghost spirit and never returned it. Song Shuhang’s eyes looked through the 13 Tribulation Transcenders, and could not find Fairy Creation among them.
Is the fairy not among the 13 Tribulation Transcenders?
In the end, his eyes fell on the statue of the Tribulation Transcender in the very lead.
“Hm?” He frowned slightly.
The face of this Tribulation Transcender’s statue had actually been erased.
However, he remembered that when he had visited the scholarly faction previously, this Tribulation Transcender seemed to have had a face. Although he could not remember exactly what their face looked like, he was certain that the first time he saw the statue, this Tribulation Transcender had a face.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Eternal Fire, who is this Tribulation Transcender that seems to be the leader of them all?”
True Monarch Eternal Fire smiled bitterly, and said slowly, “We… can’t remember.”
Song Shuhang responded, “Hm?”
This is your scholarly faction’s Tribulation Transcender.
True Monarch Eternal Fire replied, “All of the records about this first Tribulation Transcender have been erased. We can’t remember his name, and we have no impression of him.”
“The small black room of the Heaven’s Will!” Song Shuhang said subconsciously.
This effect was definitely the doing of the Heaven’s Will’s small black room.
True Monarch Eternal Fire said softly, “We had been speculating about and guessing many probable causes for a long time, and we did indeed settle on that being the most probable.”
But he hoped otherwise…
Sister White Dragon looked at the statue, and her eyes narrowed slightly. For some reason, she suddenly remembered the cultivator who had driven for them.
Fairy Creation also stared blankly at the statue of this Tribulation Transcender, and it seemed as if she remembered something.
After half an hour.
Fairy Creation took out her pipa, embraced it, and then began gently playing it with her slender fingers
The drawn-out sound of a pipa filled the air.
Fairy Creation opened her mouth and began to sing softly in the language of the ancient era.
On the 13 Tribulation Transcender statues, a brilliance condensed. The power of righteous qi that belonged to the scholarly faction gathered and condensed on the 13 statues.
Indistinctly, a figure appeared on each of the statues of the 13 Tribulation Transcenders. They showed gentle smiles and lowered their heads to look at Fairy Creation dotingly.
After several breaths of time, Fairy Creation’s singing and playing came to an end. At the same time, the phantoms of the figures of the 13 Tribulation Transcender that had come to being from the gathered righteous qi also dissipated.
Fairy Creation held her pipa tightly. Her small figure stood beneath the 13 giant statues of the Tribulation Transcenders. She raised her head to look at the cold statues, standing there without saying a word.
Under her usual playful appearance hid a deep sorrow from the death of the Scholarly Sage, the death of over half of the 13 Tribulation Transcenders, and the collapse of the scholarly faction. The battle for the position of Wielder of Heaven’s Will was simply too cruel.
Song Shuhang looked at the fairy from a distance. At this time, it was not suitable for anyone to comfort Fairy Creation.
It was best to simply leave her alone.
While in thought, Fairy Creation suddenly moved.
She jumped up high while holding the pipa, jumping on top of the head of the leader among the Tribulation Transcenders.
Then, she raised her hands up high, turned around, and stood on the tips of her toes on the edge of the Tribulation Transcender’s head before finally performing a diving motion.
Song Shuhang had a bad feeling when he saw this.
Fairy Creation tossed her pipa up high with her right hand, and then she began spinning and rolling around. Her figure, form, and movements were absolutely stunning.
Amidst all the attention, her body perfectly entered Song Shuhang’s body.
“…” Song Shuhang.
“Hoh, a very pleasant entry into the water.” Senior Turtle clapped with its forelegs.
The scholarly faction disciples who had been watching by the side also began clapping.
In the sky, the pipa fell, and Fairy Creation’s arm stretched out from Song Shuhang’s head to catch the pipa. She then waved it vigorously as if it were a trophy rather than a pipa that she was waving around.
Acting had to be carried out well.
The cheers suddenly became more enthusiastic.
Song Shuhang had no choice but to carry Senior White’s shuttle and use it to block the scorching gazes of the scholarly faction’s disciples.
True Monarch Eternal Fire smiled and led Song Shuhang into the area where White Cloud Academy entertained guests.
Originally, he wanted to directly entertain Song Shuhang in his private courtyard, but the courtyard had not been organized in some time, and it was currently quite a mess… All sorts of books and all kinds of things were scattered messily all over his courtyard. As such, he planned on quietly tidying it up first and only entertaining Song Shuhang and the others in his private courtyard after dinner.
Song Shuhang asked, “By the way, Senior Eternal Fire, did Senior Skylark come to the scholarly faction?”
When she had been at Heavenly Field Island, Skylark mentioned in the call with Thrice Reckless that she was going to borrow something from the scholarly faction before going to Netherworld Realm.
“I just asked the disciples who are in charge of the management of the academy through voice transmission about that, but they said that Fellow Daoist Skylark has not visited White Cloud Academy,” True Monarch Eternal Fire said, and added, “I’ve already asked the disciples of other academies of the scholarly faction to check if Fellow Daoist Skylark has visited any of them, we’ll just have to wait and see if any of them have been visited by her.”
I just hope that Senior Skylark had not been impulsive, Song Shuhang thought to himself.
He got a bad feeling inside him as he thought about this matter.
“Hey, Shuhang… That cultivator is a part of Yellow Mountain’s household, right? What was his name again? Farewell Hook?” Lady Onion suddenly said. She was standing on top of Senior Turtle’s shell, and Senior Turtle was currently lying right by a window.
Song Shuhang looked in the direction that Lady Onion had pointed, and saw a young man and woman talking and laughing in the corridor opposite them.
“That’s Zhou Li,” Song Shuhang said with a smile. “His daoist name is Heaven Shrouding Hook, not Farewell Hook.”
Then that fairy with Zhou Li should be ‘Teacher Jade Zither’ Ouyang Yuan, right? She’s quite the typical scholarly faction fairy. Her entire body is filled with a profound aura.
After so many twists and turns, the pair had finally gotten together—the main reason for this was that Doudou had been unable to take Zhou Li’s time as much recently as it had been under Senior Yellow Mountain’s watch.
Seemingly having sensed Song Shuhang’s gaze, Zhou Li turned his head and met Song Shuhang’s eyes.
Then, he saw the gleaming eye in Song Shuhang’s left eye socket—the Scholarly Sage’s eye.
Zhou Li’s face turned pale when he saw this. He suddenly avoided Song Shuhang’s gaze, and carefully reached out to touch his lower abdomen.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Brother Zhou Li, we’ve known each other for so long. Your reaction really makes me feel quite sad.
Hehehe, but the more you try and avoid me, the more I get the urge to go over to you!
Song Shuhang got up and got ready to mess with the other party.
But just as he got up, he sighed, and said, “No, I’m not Doudou.”
Then, under everyone’s doubtful gazes, he sat back down.
Doudou can do whatever he wants because he is Doudou.
But I’m not Doudou.
“I honestly thought that you wouldn’t be able to hold yourself back.” The voice of Senior White’s clone suddenly sounded from behind Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang turned his head and found that Senior White’s clone had come back to his senses at some point. He was holding a disposable flying sword in his hand and pressed it against his waist.
Song Shuhang’s body suddenly became covered in cold sweat after discovering this.
Senior White’s clone said earnestly, “I’ve promised to protect Fellow Daoist Zhou Li and Teacher Jade Zither as their matchmaker. It isn’t easy for them to be able to develop their affection for one another like this. I will send to Mars anyone who tries pulling them apart like Doudou.”
Song “Another Life Saved” Shuhang.
“By the way, is there a fortune teller around here?” Senior White said. “I suddenly have the urge to have someone divine their relationship.”
