Chapter 518: We just lacked strong guys to put in the mines
Coincidentally, Song Shuhang noticed two familiar faces in the camp of the Limitless Demon Sect.
He saw the same two black-robed disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect that he met as soon as he got into space. However, they weren’t wearing their magical black robes anymore. At this time, they were wearing two white-colored short magical robes of much lower quality.
Moreover, they didn’t have magical swords with them, either. While battling, they were using magical techniques from the distance and fists in close range battles. They looked quite pitiful.
‘Even when it comes to demanding the payment, we are professional!’ The proud face of that man wearing a leather armor, who was the leader of those guys demanding the pay, resurfaced in Song Shuhang’s mind.
Did that group of muscular cultivators strip them of their magical black clothes too?
At this time, the cultivators of the Limitless Demon Sect and Loose Cultivator Qian Yan’s team finished trash-talking and started battling once more.
All kinds of cool, movie-like special effects exploded one after another.
The lights of magical techniques, talismans, and sword lights completely covered the two sides. Moreover, the area their attacks covered was continuously increasing!
If Song Shuhang and the others stayed there, they would surely get involved with them!
Moreover, Song Shuhang was worried about something else too.
According to what the cultivators in the street market said, Loose Cultivator Qian Yan and his team were unable to subdue the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd and thus brought it back together with the sword light.
Since the sword light and the gourd were brought back together… wouldn’t the sword light react to him if they were too close, flying toward him together with the gourd?
ck, it’s going to be really troublesome if it happens…*
Song Shuhang said, “We should quickly get away from this group of battling cultivators.”
“Sure, Daoist Priest Shuhang,” the two servants of Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said calmly.
Afterward, they operated the immortal boat and took a roundabout route, keeping clear of the Limitless Demon Sect and Loose Cultivator Qian Yan’s team.
Now then, ‘Daoist Priest Shuhang’ has a nice ring to it… but the best thing is that they aren’t calling me ‘Great Master Shuhang’!
Luckily, the matter Song Shuhang was worried about didn’t take place.
Loose Cultivator Qian Yan’s team wasn’t famous for nothing in that gathering of cultivators. The seal they used was very strong and tightly held the sword light in place, not allowing it to break free.
The immortal boat carried Song Shuhang and the others and smoothly arrived at Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s immortal cave.
“We’re finally back home.” Song Shuhang felt as though he had got a load off his chest.
He wasn’t unlucky today, and nothing bad happened to him, either. It was truly a wonderful day.
He picked up Li Yinzhu and headed toward Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s immortal cave.
“Careful! Daoist Priest Shuhang, dodge quickly!” The voices of the two servants operating the immortal boat were transmitted from the rear.
Song Shuhang unconsciously moved to one side, avoiding the incoming crisis…
Is today’s ‘misfortune’ planning to ambush me at the doorstep of home?
At the same time, Song Shuhang turned his head around in puzzlement to take a look at what he should be ‘careful’ about since he didn’t feel any sense of crisis.
As soon as he turned his head around, he saw something shooting through space and coming toward him.
It was a sword light.
Very dazzling and very familiar.
ck, isn’t that the radiance of one of Venerable White’s disposable flying swords?*
Speaking of which, Song Shuhang could now identify the sword lights of cultivators with the naked eye.
Is it possible that one of those sword lights roaming in space with broken home appliances came toward me?
If that’s the case, it’s not too bad… at most, I’ll take care of the space junk.
However, there was another possibility that was giving Song Shuhang a headache… what if the sword light with the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd on it that Loose Cultivator Qian Yan had sealed had broken free and was now heading toward him…?
If Loose Cultivator Qian Yan and his team brought the sword light and the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd back together, it wasn’t only because they were unable to subdue the gourd… but it was also because they were unable to separate the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd and the sword light in the first place. Therefore, they should be well aware of the strength of the sword light and of the fact that it could break free at any time. However, they still decided to brace themselves and bring back both the gourd and the sword light.
Just as Song Shuhang was in deep thoughts, Yu Jiaojiao, who was sitting on his shoulder, said, “I can faintly see the silhouette of a gourd on the sword light.”
Song Shuhang face-palmed… the situation he was most afraid of was about to take place…
The speed of the sword light was extremely fast as it arrived in front of Song Shuhang. But before bumping into him, the sword light suddenly braked and stopped in its tracks, starting to gently hover midair.
Song Shuhang held Li Yinzhu with one hand and used the other to grab the hilt of the disposable flying sword.
The sword light that hundreds of cultivators were unable to catch was now obediently allowing Song Shuhang to grab itself.
Chu Chu blinked her eyes. The object that several cultivators of the Fourth and Fifth Stage were fighting for had now automatically flown into Song Shuhang’s hands…?
“Ah! There are some people in the back coming over here,” Yu Jiaojiao also added.
In the space, two groups of people were using their own special methods and madly chasing after the sword light. These people were precisely Loose Cultivator Qian Yan’s group and the guys from Limitless Demon Sect that were happily fighting against each other earlier.
“The Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd is ours!”
“Stupid loose cultivators, if you dare to meddle in this matter again, we people of the Limitless Demon Sect won’t let you off!”
“Limitless Demon Sect, you’re the ones that should be careful! Su Clan’s Seven has already destroyed almost ten of your branches, and yet, you still dare to act arrogantly! If you anger us, making us join hands, our strength won’t be much lower than Su Clan’s Seven’s!”
“Trash like you unexpectedly dares to compare themselves to Su Clan’s Seven… if you provoke us, the Limitless Demon Sect will make you die without a burial site!”
“The sword light below stopped!”
“Who is that guy? He got his hands on both the sword light and the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd! Dammit, hand over the gourd!”
“Eh? It’s that guy?” Two disciples of the Limitless Demon Sect wearing black robes opened their eyes wide…
Isn’t that guy the same Daoist Priest Stressed by a Mountain of Books that made Young Master Hai suffer a loss back then?!
But why did the sword light stop next to Daoist Priest Stressed by a Mountain of Books? Moreover, the sword light seems extremely obedient while in his hands, just as if it was Daoist Priest Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ personal pet or something!
Wait a moment! Yeah, that must be it… from the very beginning, it was Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ plan!
After all, he’s a sly fellow that made even the peerless Senior brother Young Master Hai suffer a loss. What a sinister and scary guy…
The two disciples wearing black robes clenched their teeth and said, “However… if a mere cultivator of the Second Stage tries to make fun of so many powerful Spiritual Emperors… he is simply seeking death! If you play with fire, you’ll get burned!”
The two strongest cultivators of the respective groups, Loose Cultivator Qian Yan and Peak Leader Bao Ping, twinkled a few times and shot toward Song Shuhang at the same time.
“Hand over the Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd!” Peak Leader Bao Ping cupped his hands into the shape of a barrel and shot a ray of mist toward the gourd in Song Shuhang’s hands.
“Damned fellow, the gourd is mine! Don’t even think about stealing it!” Loose Cultivator Qian Yan bellowed. It was something that his team had sealed and obtained with much difficulty, and now, someone was unexpectedly trying to snatch it away under their nose!
Loose Cultivator Qian Yan spat a multicolored ray out of his mouth, aiming at Song Shuhang!
“Those guys are really bold,” one of Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s servants muttered as he glanced at the two Spiritual Emperors quickly descending from the sky. This place was after all Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s immortal cave!
Barging uninvited into someone else’s immortal cave was a very rude behavior.
If the owner of the immortal cave was hot-tempered and were to kill the intruders in a fit of rage, no one would blame them.
At the same time, the servant stretched out his hand, and a defensive barrier appeared in the airspace of the immortal cave, warding off the attacks of Loose Cultivator Qian Yan and Peak Leader Bao Ping.
Next, the other servant turned toward Chu Chu and Shuhang and said with a smile, “Daoist Priest Shuhang, please enter the immortal cave.”
Song Shuhang felt an invisible strength support his body and bring him inside Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s immortal cave.
The nearby Chu Chu was also picked up and brought inside the immortal cave after Song Shuhang.
“Defensive barrier, activate!” Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s servant said.
As soon as he said these words, stone columns rose one after another in the proximity of the entrance of the immortal cave. From the looks of it, they were the base of a defensive barrier. The purpose of the stone columns was to maintain the powerful defensive system of the immortal cave.
“Hehe, you think you can stop me by relying on a barrier of this level?!” Loose Cultivator Qian Yan bellowed. He didn’t care about forcefully barging into the immortal cave of another cultivator. The Soul Devouring Demonic Gourd belonged to him, and he absolutely had to retrieve it.
But the most important thing was that the defense of the immortal cave was very ordinary. The rank of the defensive barrier was of the Fourth Stage. It was something that Loose Cultivator Qian Yan could destroy with one blow.
In the next moment, countless needle-shaped lights exploded from his body.
Each of the lights headed toward the stone columns at the entrance of the immortal cave without fail! Just by looking at this move, one could imagine how skilled Loose Cultivator Qian Yan was when it came to controlling his spiritual energy.
The small needle-shaped lights unexpectedly bypassed the barrier in front of the immortal cave and directly headed toward the stone columns.
“Bang, bang, bang~”
The stone columns at the entrance of the immortal cave exploded one after another, turning into rubble.
“The defense of Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s immortal cave turned out to be so weak?” Song Shuhang was confused. After all, it was the immortal cave of a Venerable!
Right at this time, the jade white lion Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue appeared beside Song Shuhang and said complacently, “Actually, it’s quite normal. After all, I’m the one that arranged these defenses, and there is a limit to how strong they can be.”
“Eh? Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue, it was you who arranged the defenses?” Song Shuhang shot a glance outside the immortal cave and said, “The defensive barrier was destroyed, and the opposite party has already barged in. Is it really not a problem?”
“It’s not a problem. We just lacked strong guys to put in the mines recently. If they are of the Fifth Stage or above, even better,” the jade white lion Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue said with a smile. “Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue discovered a planet with a high-quality spirit stones mine. However, the planet is full of filthy things, and cultivators of the Fifth Stage and below would turn into mindless monsters if they were to stay there for too long.”
“And you’re looking for strong miners for this reason?” Chu Chu muttered. Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors were respected figures in the world of cultivators… but these people wanted to catch them and put them to work in mines…?
But right at this time, an ice-cold voice echoed in Song Shuhang’s ears. “Out of the way!”
Soon after, a jade white leg appeared out of nowhere and kicked away Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue.
The little lion was literally kicked flying!
Song Shuhang followed the silhouette of the leg and finally saw the owner. It was a woman wearing a light green skirt that had come out from the depths of the immortal cave. Her light green skirt had butterflies embroidered above and was slit until the thighs; it was both sexy and elegant.
The woman had long golden hair that resembled a mass of golden threads, shining to the point of the being dazzling. Additionally, she was wearing a black eyeshade that covered most of her face.
After kicking away the poor Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue, the golden-haired woman elegantly sashayed toward the entrance of the immortal cave…
