Chapter 1259 – The flat imperial hat steel hands empress form
The cold holy light grew brighter and stronger.
Hold it together, Inner World!
The other party’s ‘holy light’ was very strange. It was cold and carried with it an aura that seemed to want to destroy everything. However, it was completely different from the evil energy of the Netherworld, and even the Inner World was not able to absorb this energy.
As such, Song Shuhang’s ‘lotus root cheat’ was not available here.
Song Shuhang asked, “Senior Turtle, is there anything that can be done to drive out the holy light before the other party sends over even more of it?”
The sea turtle replied, “Give me the Deadly Cold Sword, I’ll activate the Palace of Winter’s defenses. This guy is too arrogant, it actually thinks that it can just come and go as it pleases in my master’s Palace of Winter. If this sea turtle doesn’t show its power, people think that I’m nothing but a soft-shelled turtle! I shall use a formation technique to break off the spatial channel and stop it from locking onto the Palace of Winter!”
“The Deadly Cold Sword? Give me a moment!” Song Shuhang willed it and brought out Ye Si. Afterward, he removed the Deadly Cold Sword from Ye Si’s body, grabbed it with two fingers, and handed it over to the sea turtle.
When Ye Si appeared, the virtuous lamia emerged on her own initiative, starting to guard Ye Si.
The sea turtle grabbed the Deadly Cold Sword, took a deep breath, and then began pouring energy into the sword.
In the next moment, thousands of restrictions, formations, and runes in the Palace of Winter began to light up. The Palace of Winter turned into a light source, appearing luxurious and beautiful. This was once the palace of the ancient Heavenly City’s Great Northern Emperor, a palace that was more luxurious than the palaces of all emperors in the world.
With the Palace of Winter’s formation being activated, the cold holy light was greatly suppressed, and the speed at which it was spreading was significantly slower now. The spatial channel behind it was disturbed by the Palace of Winter formation and became unstable.
The sea turtle gritted its teeth, and said, “Heavens, what the hell is this thing! The spatial channel it opened can’t be cut off for some reason!”
Originally, once the Palace of Winter’s formation was activated, even spatial channels opened by Immortals would be cut off. However, the spatial channel of this big-eyed planet only ended up becoming unstable but was not closed.
Song Shuhang said, “Senior, keep it up. I’m going to try something and see if I can break it off.”
[Did something happen, Shuhang? Your mood is fluctuating greatly,] Ye Si, who was transcending her inner demon tribulation, asked through their mental connection.
Ye Si could come out from time to time to talk to Song Shuhang despite being in the middle of her inner demon tribulation… If her inner demon tribulation had intelligence, it would probably be crying right now.
Song Shuhang replied, [Something troublesome has appeared, but it’s alright. We’re currently in the Inner World, this is our home battlefield.]
The Inner World was his world.
It was his domain.
Ye Si said, [Oh, pay attention to your safety. I’ll get back to transcending my inner demon tribulation, call me if something happens.]
Song Shuhang said, [Do your best.]
After Ye Si reached the Sixth Stage, his ghost spirit cheat would be available once again, and it would even be more powerful this time. As such, he was looking forward to seeing Ye Si get through her tribulation.
After saying that, he put his hand on Ye Si and let her return to her body.
However, the virtuous lamia did not return; she continued to diligently stay beside Song Shuhang.
Scarlet Heaven Sword asked, “Need help?”
Come on, use me, boy! It’s time for me to shine once again.
Song Shuhang said, “Scarlet Heaven Sword, I’m going to need your help.”
The virtuous lamia blinked.
Song Shuhang said, “Lend Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword to me. I’m going to eradicate that holy light. That guy is really troublesome.”
The virtuous lamia looked at Song Shuhang, whose appearance was currently that of steel hands, and began looking left and right.
After a while, her eyes lit up.
Her body inflated—ever since the virtuous lamia evolved, she got the ability to control her size at will.
In the next moment, she had grown to a size that was more than four meters tall.
Then, she stretched her arms to ‘wear’ the steel hands Shuhang had turned into.
The size was just right.
From the perspective of others, it was like the virtuous lamia simply wore a pair of steel gloves.
The virtuous lamia’s eyes narrowed contentedly; she was clearly very happy.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue: “Pffft~”
Song Shuhang gravely said, “Don’t mess around, we’re dealing with a very serious matter right now.”
The virtuous lamia nodded.
After that, she took out the ‘flat imperial hat’.
She skillfully coiled her long hair, put on the flat imperial hat, and then inserted a jade pin into her long hair. In front of the flat imperial hat, there was a ‘tassel’, swaying gently along with the movements of the beautiful virtuous lamia. At this moment, her eyes were shining with dignity.
She gently urged the flat imperial hat, and a large power of virtue poured out from the hat and merged into her body. A set of lifelike female imperial clothes took shape and covered her body. In addition, nine lifelike dragons could be seen roaming on the imperial robe.
The long hem of the imperial robe hid her snake tail, while the long sleeves covered the steel hands-version Song Shuhang.
The virtuous lamia was in her most beautiful state right now.
It seemed as if she was born to wear this majestic attire.
After turning on the virtuous empress mode, the virtuous lamia gently opened her mouth and let out ‘Scarlet Heaven Sword’, grabbing it with her hand.
Of course, these were not only her hands, but also Song Shuhang’s hands.
The virtuous lamia grasped Scarlet Heaven Sword before moving onward to protect the lotus flower. Her figure flickered and appeared in front of the cold holy light.
She raised Scarlet Heaven Sword high up in the air.
At this moment, Song Shuhang seemed to have merged with the virtuous lamia.
Song Shuhang relaxed his body, allowing the virtuous lamia to control the general situation while he took care of the details.
Let’s call this brand-new mode the ‘flat imperial hat steel hands empress form’!
When Scarlet Heaven Sword was raised up high, Song Shuhang controlled his wrist.
Saber intent burst out.
At this moment, there were two kinds of saber intent that came out: one was Song Shuhang’s defensive armor saber intent capable of counter-attacking, and the other one was the virtuous lamia’s tyrannical saber intent.
Flames rose on Scarlet Heaven Sword.
[Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique!]
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “Yo, not bad. It’s not too far from what it feels like when Scarlet Heaven uses me.”
In addition to the flames, Scarlet Heaven Sword was also covered with a thick layer of gold—it was a layer of power of virtue.
The flame and the light of virtue complemented each other, like fire borrowing the wind.
Song Shuhang was encased in flames.
Unlike when he used ‘Scarlet Heaven Sword’ alone, when he cooperated with the virtuous lamia in her empress form, there was no need for any ‘charging’ time at all.
The sword rose and slashed out. This was his strongest attack!
The flames were violent, and it seemed like everything in their path would be destroyed.
These were flames capable of burning the heavens.
The sword fell, slashing at the cold holy light.
There were no violent explosions, nor were there any gorgeous light effects.
The two opposite forces met, devoured each other, and entangled with each other in an attempt to eliminate the other side.
In the middle of the holy light, the projection of the big-eyed planet stared at Song Shuhang across space.
It had not expected that the little mouse it thought it could easily squeeze to death would be able to slash out an attack that was beyond its imagination.
In the rear, behind the protection of the Inner World’s Lotus.
The sea turtle and Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue were both dumbfounded.
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue had always thought that Song Shuhang was merely a fake Eighth Stage Profound Sage and that his real strength would only be at the Fourth Stage. She had thought that he might be able to erupt with strength at the Fifth Stage at most.
However, she had never expected this guy’s power to directly skyrocket in such a way. The power of this strike was already beyond what ‘Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’ could release at his peak.
The sea turtle laughed, and said, “Beautifully done! Suppress it, I’ll cut off the spatial channel!”
While the cold holy light was entangled with Song Shuhang’s Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique, the sea turtle could use the power of the Palace of Winter to completely cut off the other party’s spatial channel and then erase their coordinates to resolve the crisis they were currently in.
[Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue, are you okay?] At this time, Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s voice resounded in Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue’s mind.
Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue responded, [I’m fine, what’s happening at your side?]
Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue smiled bitterly, and said, [We were attacked. A planet with a large eye tore through space. Its goal seems to be to eliminate everything related to the ‘Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber’. It even locked onto your location. Anyway, where are you right now?]
[Crap, am I the one this guy is looking for?] Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue looked at the cold holy light and at the picture reflected inside the light.
What appeared in the picture was a planet with a large eye. It turned out that this guy wasn’t even trying to go for Song Shuhang, and came for her instead.
I should calm down first. The most important thing to do right now is to find a way to deal with the situation in front of me.
After thinking for a while, Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue replied to Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, [I’m here with little friend Song Shuhang. He’s currently resisting the holy light of the big-eyed planet.]
Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue responded, [What? Little friend Song Shuhang is resisting its attack? Are you sure you’re not talking about Fellow Daoist White?]
Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue remembered that Fellow Daoist White had been pretty much inseparable from little friend Song Shuhang recently. If little friend Song Shuhang was somehow able to resist the attack of the planet with a big eye, it could only be because of Fellow Daoist White.
[No, little friend Song is the one resisting it. How are things over at your side?] Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue asked as he rubbed her temples.
After all, Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had the Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber with him, and things could be better on his side.
Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue went silent for a moment before saying, [There is a chance I might die here. The Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber is consuming its energy very quickly, but even it can’t take me and Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue away from here. It can only guard us and remain very passive. When its power is exhausted…]
He would not have thought that the [Profound Sage Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s Tomb] that he had just constructed would actually end up being his burial place.
Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue interrupted, [I haven’t even made my will yet.]
Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue said, [I can summon you over here!]
Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said, [Don’t, there seems to be something awry with summoning right now. When you try summoning me, you might end up directly getting dragged over like Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue. At that time, none of us would be able to survive. I am currently communicating with the ‘Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber’. It will temporarily block the connection between you and us, and it will cut off the spatial channel. When all this passes, you have to take the Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber for the future Eighth Cultivator of True Virtue.]
However, at this moment, the big planet in front of him slowly began to turn.
The huge eye changed its angle.
A horrific beam of light came out from the big eye and pierced into space… it was shooting towards Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue’s location.
Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue shouted, [Not good, Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue, you have to run away!]
In Song Shuhang’s Inner World.
A terrifying light beam shot toward Inner World, and this beam of light was so huge that it was even bigger than the entire Inner World!
