Chapter 490: The Whale Swallowing Technique!
“Guoguo has yet to return?” Song Shuhang asked after entering the room. There were no traces of the small monk.
Yu Jiaojiao replied, “He should still be chanting his morning buddhist scriptures. Being a buddhist is slightly troublesome, but their willpower will turn out to be very strong in the future.”
“So that’s how it was.” Song Shuhang nodded.
Afterward, he wore the golden chain once more and said, “Jiaojiao, I’ve discovered the secret of this chain. Now, I’ll try to sink into the illusion on my own. Can you give me a hand if something unexpected happens?”
Yu Jiaojiao replied, “Sure, leave it to me.”
Song Shuhang raised the golden chain to his eye level, and when the sunlight shooting through the window shone on it, something about the chain changed again.
The thirty-three animal pictures on the chain started emitting a gentle radiance, and the lines the animals were made of started to sway from side to side like waves.
Song Shuhang stared at the animal pictures and slowly rotated the golden chain clockwise, carefully looking at each picture.
When he reached the picture of the ‘whale’, the lines on the golden chain swayed even more fiercely.
As expected, there is a connection with the Huge Whale Chapter of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ that I practice…
Now then, how can I sink into the illusory technique concealed within these pictures?
Back then, he was able to enter the illusion of the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ due to the combinations of the pictures and chant of the technique. Moreover, he was just an ordinary person, and the amount of mental energy he possessed was very low. This allowed him to be easily influenced by the illusion.
But now, he was already a cultivator of the Second Stage Realm, and his mental energy was hundreds of times stronger than before. As if that wasn’t enough, the golden chain didn’t have any chant associated to it… could he successfully sink into the illusion by relying on the Huge Whale Chapter of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ alone?
Song Shuhang had no way to tell, but he still decided to give it a try.
Around three minutes later, Song Shuhang’s eyes lost focus.
He had managed to successfully sink into the illusory technique concealed within the pictures of the golden chain.
Although what he was doing was rather risky, it was still within the range of what Song Shuhang could accept. Moreover, he secretly liked the excitement that braving dangers brought along.
Inside the illusion.
A huge ocean full of waves appeared before Song Shuhang’s eyes.
Amidst the waves, a huge whale was spraying water like a fountain.
“This feeling… it seems that I’m inside one of those spaces where cultivation techniques are passed down?” Song Shuhang muttered to himself. This space was the same as the one he entered when he learned the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯.
Now then, how is this huge whale going to pass down the technique?
“Whooo~” the huge whale issued a strange cry.
Soon after, it turned its head around and looked at Song Shuhang.
Was it about to pass down the technique to Shuhang?
“The password!” the huge whale said in a grave tone.
“Eh?” Song Shuhang lightly called out.
“The password!” the whale roared once more.
Song Shuhang pondered for a moment and casually said, “1 2 3 4 5?”
“The password is incorrect. The process of passing down the technique failed,” the huge whale cried out. Soon after, the surrounding space slightly shook, and Song Shuhang was catapulted out of the illusion.
“You are back from the illusion?” Yu Jiaojiao asked.
“Yes.” Song Shuhang nodded. Just as he expected, that space where the technique was passed down was a type of low-level illusory technique concealed within the golden chain.
It only had the ability to pass down the technique and did not possess any killing power. Therefore, even if he got the password wrong, he was just thrown out of the illusion. It didn’t injure him or anything of the like.
“Did you obtain something?” Yu Jiaojiao asked.
“Just like I guessed, the pictures engraved on the golden chain are the key to learn the technique. Earlier, I managed to successfully enter the illusion,” Song Shuhang replied.
Yu Jiaojiao asked, “Did you manage to obtain what you wanted?”
“No. There were some security measures inside the illusory space where the technique was being passed down. One needs to know the correct password in order to learn the technique… and unfortunately, we don’t know what the password is,” Song Shuhang said as he shrugged his shoulders.
Yu Jiaojiao smiled and said, “Therefore, you want to go to that man wearing black clothes and interrogate him.”
“Exactly,” Song Shuhang said and nodded.
After stretching himself, he stood up and decided to see if Young Master Phoenix Slayer had finished practicing yet.
But as soon as he stood up, Song Shuhang felt his head become somewhat heavy.
His vision became blurry, and he felt as though stars were dancing before his eyes.
“Is it because I didn’t eat enough lately?” Song Shuhang muttered to himself.
No, that’s not it. I ate quite well recently. Moreover, I ate a large number of natural treasures as well.
Song Shuhang closed his eyes and rubbed his temples.
But when he closed his eyes… two scenes flashed before his eyes.
He suddenly discovered that he was standing amidst a stretch of ruins, shivering and trembling.
For some reason, his heart started to ache as soon as he witnessed this scene.
At this time, he was standing amidst the remains of a huge celestial palace. However, there were no traces of battle in the surrounding area. It felt as though a power so strong that words alone were not enough to describe it had instantly destroyed this magnificent celestial palace.
Afterward, another scene flashed before his eyes.
It was the bloody palm of a hand.
On the palm were written the words ‘Beloved Dog 43B’ and drawn the picture of a golden chain.
Song Shuhang faintly sighed. Was this the password required in the illusory space?
But at this time, he was unable to cheer up.
The sight of the ruins of the celestial palace completely wrecked his mood.
The two scenes were very strange. Moreover, they flashed by before his eyes in the instant he lowered his head.
“So, it seems I managed to obtain what I needed,” Song Shuhang muttered to himself.
“What?” Yu Jiaojiao exclaimed.
“It’s nothing. I’ve discovered something rather interesting,” Song Shuhang said with a smile. “Jiaojiao, I’ll try to sink into the illusion of the golden chain again.”
After saying this much, Song Shuhang wore the golden chain once more.
He moved the chain until reaching the picture of the whale and relaxed. Afterward, he coordinated with the picture and got ready to enter the illusion.
Three minutes later, he managed to enter the illusory space once more.
Mighty waves were surging, and a huge whale was spraying water.
“Whooo~” the huge whale cried out strangely. “The password!”
“Beloved Dog 43B!” Song Shuhang replied.
“The password is correct,” the huge whale said.
In the next moment, the whale entered into action.
It jumped upward and came out of the water, starting to prance about in the sky.
If one were to consider the huge whale as a stream of ‘true qi’ and the sea below as the dantian, they would notice that what they were seeing was a type of true qi revolving method. It was precisely the method to revolve one’s true qi included in the Whale Chapter of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯.
However, the method to revolve the true qi of the Huge Whale Chapter he possessed was incomplete!
The ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ had a set of supplementary techniques, just like the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ had the ❮Immovable Body of the Buddha❯ as a complementary technique. Only when the two of them were united, was it possible to obtain the real cultivation technique.
And the supplementary cultivation technique of the Huge Whale Chapter was precisely the ❮Whale Swallowing Technique❯!
