Chapter 1989: Look, this Song now has a slow-witted body
After the Heavenly Emperor left, the great master from the Jingang Temple appeared beside Daozi. “Did you really use Profound Sage Tyrannical Song to dupe the Heavenly Emperor? When did you even get the time to plan for something like that?”
“I was lying,” Daozi replied. “I was busy dealing with that Immortal from the Heavenly City, so how could I have the time to lay a trap for the Heavenly Emperor? Although I don’t know what happened to the Heavenly Emperor, I acted like I had something to do with it in order to appear more threatening than I was. But in the end, it fired back.”
After Song Shuhang went to carry out the transaction with the Heavenly Emperor, he had been following them so that he could take action if needed.
However, the Heavenly Emperor suddenly entered the Inner World with Song Shuhang. Since the Inner World was Song Shuhang’s private world, he could not break in and was forced to wait outside.
When he was waiting for the Heavenly Emperor to come out, he readied himself to go along with the flow. He would stand in the distance with a refined smile on his face. There was no need for him to say anything; he just needed to stand silently. As soon as the Heavenly Emperor saw his smile, she would have fallen in his trap.
This was how scholars applied pressure on others. In the past, when his teacher acted in such a way, there was never a time when he would fall into a disadvantage.
However, the Heavenly Emperor did not follow the script.
His acting fell short, and the Heavenly Emperor made a fool out of him before leaving.
“You don’t have the bearing of an expert. You’re too rough,” the great master said. “By the way, is Tyrannical Song still away?”
The great master wanted to trick Song Shuhang into joining the Buddhist side.
After all, he knew all kinds of scholarly faction techniques that he could use to lure Tyrannical Song.
“Let’s go,” said Daozi suddenly.
He was sure that the Heavenly Emperor had already left, and the members of the Heavenly City had left with her. He motioned for the great master to get ready to leave.
“Are you not going to wait for the scholarly faction’s funeral ceremonies to conclude?” asked the great master from the Jingang Temple.
Daozi froze for a moment, but he shook his head eventually.
“There’s no point in waiting. The dead are already dead,” he said in a solemn voice before stepping forward.
A spatial gate appeared right in front of him as he took that step, and his figure disappeared at that very same moment.
The great master touched his bald head and looked at the sky with some regret. “Forget it. I have some fate with Tyrannical Song, so I’ll provide him with some guidance the next time we meet.”
After saying that, he also stepped forward and left the sky above the scholarly faction.
Inside the Inner World.
Song Shuhang’s head was returned to the Living Spring.
Pavilion Master Chu glanced at Song Shuhang and opened her mouth to blow bubbles. It was a lot better now that Shuhang’s entire head was here.
Before, Song Shuhang only left his neck in the pond by using a mini spatial gate. As a result, his neck was left on its own floating inside the Living Spring, which was quite unsettling.
“Phew~” Song Shuhang exhaled in relief.
The throes of pain were suppressed by the healing effect of the Living Spring’s water. He nearly cried out in pain from how agonizing it felt.
Sixteen asked, “Are you going to try out that wooden body you got from the Heavenly Emperor?”
The wooden body that they had exchanged from the Heavenly Emperor was currently in Song Shuhang’s Inner World.
Song Shuhang said cautiously, “I’ll appraise it first and see if there are any problems with it.”
Then, he urged his will.
The wooden body with eyes instead of nipples and a mouth instead of a navel was transferred over to the edge of the Living Spring.
Sister White Dragon: “…”
So when this guy is in the Inner World, he can instantly teleport things. Does this mean that he can instantly appear in any corner of the Inner World with a thought?
Pavilion Master Chu asked curiously, “What is this?”
“A body that I can use temporarily,” Song Shuhang replied. “Senior Chu, if your body can handle leaving the Living Spring, you can use it as well.”
Pavilion Master Chu shook her head and said, “I’d rather not.”
For the time being, she would not leave the Living Spring. As Song Shuhang’s Inner World continued to evolve, the Living Spring got better and better. Now, her body had already regenerated all the way to her collarbone area and was soon going to reach a critical area.
In the near future, she would not be coming out of the water.
“Anyway, when I learn the ❮Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique❯’s General Principles Inheritance Chapter and make a new body for myself, I can give this wooden body to you, Pavilion Master Chu,” said Song Shuhang.
Afterward, he looked at Sister White Dragon. “Sister White Dragon, do you think there is something wrong with the wooden body the Heavenly Emperor gave me?”
Sister White Dragon replied, “I checked it and did not find anything suspicious.”
Pavilion Master Chu also scanned the wooden body and did not notice anything unusual.
“Then, should I connect my head to it?” Song Shuhang wondered. “If there is any problem, please immediately separate my head from it.”
Pavilion Master Chu said, “Don’t worry. You can leave that to me.”
Sixteen picked up Song Shuhang’s head and went to the wooden body.
The wooden body was very tall with a height of nearly 1.9 meters even without a head.
Sixteen stood on the tip of her toes and placed Song Shuhang’s head on the wooden body’s neck.
Sixteen asked, “How does it feel?”
Song Shuhang blinked and replied, “I don’t feel anything.”
His head did not connect with the body. Instead, it was simply “placed” on top of it.
Sister White Dragon said, “Perhaps you have to mark it first. Try pouring your spiritual energy into it and see what happens.”
It was the typical testing method that all cultivators used.
If a cultivator encountered an item that they did not recognize, they could figure out what it did by pouring some true qi, spiritual energy, or immortal energy into it, as there was at least a 70% chance that the item would be activated that way.
Song Shuhang said, “I’ll give it a try.”
He then circulated the remaining spiritual energy in his body and poured it into the wooden body.
The wooden body did not reject his energy, accepting it without problems.
The spiritual energy became like a thread connecting Song Shuhang and the wooden body.
Then, the two began to enter a state of resonance.
At the same time, the Sage’s blood that was right under Song Shuhang’s neck began to show its power. It formed multiple threads of blood, with a portion connecting to Song Shuhang’s head and the rest entering the wooden body.
The threads of blood had formed a network of blood between Song Shuhang’s head and the wooden body.
When Song Shuhang’s body was blown up, the Sage’s blood had “stored away” some of the things Shuhang had on his person.
Among them was a colorful bundle of light, which was now transferred to the wooden body by the Sage’s blood alongside many other things that were on Shuhang back then.
Song Shuhang felt as if he had a body again.
He tried making a fist.
Instantly, the fist of the wooden body responded.
“Haha, it works,” Song Shuhang said happily. “Seniors, looks, this Song now has a slow-witted1 (wooden) body!”
When these words reached Sister White Dragon’s ears, her claw moved by conditioned reflex and shot toward Song Shuhang.
It was a sudden attack from an Immortal-level powerhouse.
Song Shuhang did not see it coming and was blasted away by the claw.
“Aahhh~” He was sent flying from the Living Spring, which was at the center of the Inner World, all the way to the Death Forest, which was at the edge.
Sister White Dragon said, “Oops, that was a conditioned reflex.”
