Chapter 1142: Fellow Daoist, please send over a nuclear bomb
The reporters’ faces showed great doubt as they pondered the unfamiliar name. Could it be that our intelligence agents are too lacking and didn’t manage to find information on this ‘Sage Monarch Melon Eater’?
But that couldn’t possibly be right! Eighth Stage Profound Sages would always hold a ‘show of divinity in front of the masses’. Therefore, it was impossible for all the practitioners in the universe not to have any information about a new Profound Sage.
Was it because Sage Monarch Winter Melon was a foreigner? Maybe he accidentally mispronounced the Sage’s name because his Chinese wasn’t up to standard?
Could the real name of this [Sage Monarch Melon Eater (chī guā)] actually be [Sage Monarch Red Hook(chì guà)], or perhaps it was transliterated from Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s mother tongue and then converted to ‘Melon Eater’?
But regardless, they only had to wait for a while to be able to see this ‘Sage Monarch Melon Eater’ in person. At that time, the truth would be revealed. Several reporters looked at each other and nodded, all coming to that conclusion.
Although the breaking news about the battle between the [fifth Sage in a thousand years] and the [first Sage in a thousand years] tonight turned out ot be fake, it was at least replaced by this new battle between Sage Monarch Winter Melon and Sage Monarch Melon Eater, which shouldn’t be bad, either.
The spirit of gossip within the reporters was already on fire.
Under Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s lead, the reporters went straight to the spiritual mountain.
At the same time, Song Shuhang had just led Shi, Su Clan’s Sixteen, Little Cai, and the virtuous lamia out of the great barrier at the foot of the spiritual mountain.
Shi curiously asked, “Senior Brother Song, where are we heading next?”
Tonight had been really exciting—not only did they dig up a treasure for Lady Onion, but they also suffered the attack of an Immortal. Unfortunately, the true appearance of this Immortal could not be seen as its body was covered by a layer of stone.
Then, there was the scene of Senior Brother Song controlling the ‘virtuous lamia’, and using Scarlet Heaven Sword to fight another mysterious powerhouse. Other than the whole thing being very exciting, Shi was also able to gain a lot of insight after watching these several battles in a row.
Watching battles between such great powerhouses was also a kind of blessing; the benefits were second only to ones gained from a speech of an expert.
Staying by Senior Brother Song’s side had allowed her to experience so many exciting things, and even let her breakthrough! From time to time, she would even get the chance to eat Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s dishes. It was really great! Unfortunately… her sect already knew that she had successfully jumped through the dragon gate and ascended to the Second Stage. It was likely that they were going to send someone to pick her up very soon.
Shi felt truly reluctant. If she could stay with Senior Brother Song all the time, then she would be able to have a lot of fun while easily advancing in realm.
Song Shuhang looked at the sky, and said, “Are you going to go with me to Wenzhou City?”
Su Clan’s Sixteen paused slightly, and then replied, “I’m fine with that.”
Little Cai said, “Wherever Teacher goes, I go as well.”
Shi blinked, and said, “Wherever Senior Brother goes, I go as well.”
As they were talking, Song Shuhang suddenly had a strange feeling. “Someone has come, and… this visitor doesn’t seem to have come with good intentions.”
His Sage Seal had reacted to the Sage Seal of another party; that person was a Profound Sage. In addition, the opponent’s Sage Seal conveyed the intent to battle.
F*ck, it can’t be Sage Monarch Winter Melon, right?
Did he see through my ‘nuclear deterrence’, and came looking for me? Wasn’t he a bit too fast?
This is such a headache…
Although ‘Scarlet Heaven Sword’ promised Song Shuhang that it would help him execute the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯, it still had to recover. Calculating the time, it would still need around 50 minutes before it could help Song Shuhang.
Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s timing was simply too terrible.
Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “It can’t be Sage Monarch Winter Melon, right?”
“I’m 80-90% sure that it’s him.” The corners of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched.
Su Clan’s Sixteen said, “Should we try running away from him?”
Since Sage Monarch Winter Melon dared to come looking for them, then he had likely found a way to deal with the ‘nuclear deterrence’, or realized that the ‘nuclear deterrence’ was simply a paper tiger.
Song Shuhang said, “A monk can run, but the temple can’t. With Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s bothersome character, even if we hide from him today, he would definitely come looking for us again tomorrow. Let’s take a look at the situation before deciding.”
If Sage Monarch Winter Melon had been born a woman, she would have been quite interesting with such a persistent character. However, he was born a man, so he was only annoying.
In hindsight, it was better to look at the situation first. If things really were not going well, Song Shuhang just had to stall for an hour and then let Sage Monarch Winter Melon taste the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯.
On the other side.
“We’ve arrived, it’s just ahead,” Sage Monarch Winter Melon said in a deep voice. “Sage Monarch Melon Eater said that he would wait for me on this spiritual mountain. When I fight with him, you guys had better retreat a bit to avoid getting involved in our battle. ”
The reporters nodded, and replied, “Sage Monarch, rest assured, we are aware of such things.”
“Sage Monarch Winter Melon, do you have a chance of winning against [Sage Monarch Melon Eater]?” a reporter of the Daily Cultivator asked with curiosity.
“To be honest, there’s no chance of me winning,” Sage Monarch Winter Melon said. “But that doesn’t matter, the crux of this battle with him isn’t the outcome. I simply want to show him the power of my path of defense. So, even if I lose, it will be enough as long as I can prove that my path of defense is right. ”
The reporter of the Daily Cultivator nodded.
Sage Monarch Winter Melon raised his head and looked at the sky. It was a fine night tonight, the full moon was bright, and all the stars revolved around the moon.
However, the full moon was still a bit too small.
As this thought came to his mind, Sage Monarch Winter Melon took out the moon background he had prepared, then stretched out his hand, and released it.
With the full moon background released, the full moon in the sky looked about twice as large. It was bigger, rounder, and brighter.
This background was suitable for his upcoming battle with Sage Monarch Melon Eater.
In addition… by releasing this full moon background, he was also telling ‘Sage Monarch Melon Eater’ that he had already come and they could begin the ‘battle of two Sages’.
A huge full moon emerged.
Sage Monarch Winter Melon said, “He’s come!” He sensed that there someone was coming down the mountain. Moreover, that someone possessed the aura of a ‘Sage Seal’.
It seemed that Sage Monarch Melon Eater had yet to become a Tribulation Transcender; this allowed Sage Monarch Winter Melon to secretly breathe a sigh of relief. With this being the case, he could at least resist a while during the duel and not be smashed to the ground as soon as it started.
While he was in thought, Sage Monarch Winter Melon suddenly froze.
Looking in the distance, he saw a young man appear on the spiritual mountain.
The teenager had long hair flowing down his back, and he was flying in the wind; his facial features were exquisite, and he looked like a kind person.
He was missing a left arm, but his left arm was not broken. One could faintly tell that his arm had been disconnected, and was now somewhere far away.
Behind the young man, a golden figure that was materialized light of virtue was following him; that light of virtue had assumed the shape of a lamia. Every time she moved, light of virtue would envelop the young man.
“Sage Monarch Tyrannical Song…” Sage Monarch Winter Melon was stunned.
This scenario wasn’t right; wasn’t Sage Monarch Melon Eater the one supposed to appear at this time?
Why did Sage Monarch Tyrannical Song suddenly appear here?
What about Sage Monarch Melon Eater?
Wait a moment… If Profound Sage Tyrannical Song was the one here, hadn’t he just challenged him once again?
Sage Monarch Winter Melon immediately recalled the sky filled with nuclear bombs and hydrogen bombs, causing his brain to hurt.
Behind Sage Monarch Winter Melon, the eyes of the reporters lit up—they felt that they were going to be able to catch some hot news.
Song Shuhang stood high up above them, similarly looking at Sage Monarch Winter Melon from afar.
At this time, Sage Monarch Winter Melon fully displayed his aura and no longer suppressed his ‘Sage Seal’. When one saw him, they would be able to know that his Sage Name was ‘Winter Melon’.
[It’s Sage Monarch Winter Melon, f*ck my life.] Song Shuhang sighed.
“Fellow Daoist Winter Melon, I didn’t expect you to be so persistent.” Song Shuhang gazed below him at Sage Monarch Winter Melon, and said, “So, Fellow Daoist Winter Melon, have you already found a way to deal with my magical technique?”
Song Shuhang’s voice was calm and steady as he transmitted his voice through the ‘Sage Seal’ with the dignity of a ‘Profound Sage’.
The corners of Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s mouth twitched faintly.
If I had found a way to deal with your ultimate magical technique, I would not have chosen to fight ‘Sage Monarch Melon Eater’.
However, in front of everyone, Sage Monarch Winter Melon couldn’t show himself to be too cowardly. No matter what, he was still the fifth Sage in a thousand years. Even if he were to lose, he couldn’t just forsake his image.
Sage Monarch Winter Melon shook his head, and said, “I’m ashamed to say that even though I’ve been bitterly thinking of ways on how I might deal with it until now, I have yet to come up with a method, Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song.”
[This guy hasn’t seen through my ‘nuclear deterrence’? Then, why did he come looking for me again?] Song Shuhang wondered in his mind.
However, his face remained calm as he slowly said, “Then, why has Fellow Daoist come looking for me on the night of the full moon? Is something the matter?”
The other party had even released into the sky a full moon background that enlarged the full moon by three times, showing his desire to challenge him to a duel.
Could it be that the other party was planning on using words to force him to be unable to use the ‘nuclear deterrence’, and then have a bout with him?
With Sage Monarch Winter Melon’s annoying character, such a change in the plot might really take place.
While Song Shuhang was thinking about it, Scarlet Heaven Sword transmitted its voice to him, [Little friend Song, is the person you said you were going to fight a while ago this newly ascended Eighth Stage Profound Sage?]
Song Shuhang replied, [Exactly.]
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, [If that’s the case… although I haven’t completely recovered, I can still help you slash out the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯ at around the peak of the Eighth Stage and close to the Ninth Stage in power. Moreover, this level of the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯ is easy to control and would not cause any accidental injuries.]
Song Shuhang heard this and joy filled his heart.
In other words, instead of having to stall for an hour, he could just take the sword and engulf the skies in heaven-burning fire.
At this time, Sage Monarch Winter Melon sighed, and made a decision.
Sage Monarch Winter Melon deeply said, “Actually, what happened tonight was a misunderstanding. I rushed over here to challenge Senior ‘Sage Monarch Melon Eater’ and prove to him that my path of defense is the correct one.”
Song Shuhang: “…”
It turned out to be a misunderstanding. To think that from the beginning until now I was the one overthinking things.
Who was Sage Monarch Melon Eater, though?
And for such a coincidence to actually take place, did that mean that Sage Monarch Melon Eater lived nearby?
“However, since we’re already at this point, I have a request.” Sage Monarch Winter Melon seriously said, “Fellow Daoist, can you send over a heavenly tribulation nuclear bomb so that I’ll be able to have an idea on how things might play out before I go and challenge Sage Monarch Melon Eater?”
Song Shuhang: “…”
