Chapter 696: Is Senior Thrice Reckless going to be cremated?
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
“Crackle, crackle, crackle~” A crackling sound echoed continually.
Tears were streaming down Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s face. These tears weren’t of regret or grief. After all, Thrice Reckless never regretted seeking death.
Tears were streaming down his face due to the unbearable pain he was feeling.
It was a pain that not even a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor could endure!
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber felt that his body was currently inflated to the bursting point. In the next moment, it exploded with a loud bang, just like a balloon that had been pricked!
Brother Medicine Master turned out to be this heartless?! This is simply too cruel!
After exploding, I’m really going to die…
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s body exploded just as this thought flashed through his mind… but what came off was a layer of external skin. The process was similar to a snake shedding its skin. A brand-new, white, and tender Thrice Reckless Mad Saber made his appearance after the outer layer of skin burst open.
In the next moment, this brand-new Thrice Reckless Mad Saber also inflated to the bursting point, and finally exploded.
This process repeated itself continuously, just like an infinite cycle.
The crackling sound of firecrackers that everyone was hearing was just Thrice Reckless Mad Saber exploding and coming back to life again and again.
Whenever there was a crackling sound, it meant that Thrice Reckless Mad Saber had exploded, and the frequency at which he was exploding was two or three times per second!
This fearsome sound of ‘firecrackers’ continued for close to a minute without interruptions. Within this period of time, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber felt that he had exploded at least 170 times. Each time he was exploding, his physical energy and spiritual energy would be consumed. As such, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber had become incredibly weak after exploding around 170 times.
At this moment, Thrice Reckless really wished he could die.
At last, the sound of the explosions finally stopped.
Although the sound of the explosions was very loud, their destructive power wasn’t high. As such, the daoist robe Thrice Reckless was wearing wasn’t blown to pieces.
At this moment, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber felt as though there were several thick layers of ‘skin armor’ all over his body. Actually, no, these weren’t really layers of skin armor… they were more like the remains of the ‘Thrice Reckless Mad Sabers’ that had died in the explosions earlier, and were now stuffed inside his daoist robe!
Medicine Master, the two of us cannot coexist anymore! Thrice Reckless Mad Saber roared inwardly.
Once Medicine Master and Riverly Purple Mist’s wedding was over, he absolutely had to find a way to send them his best regards. He already had several ideas in mind, and was just waiting to get out of this situation to put them into practice!
Just as Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was in deep thoughts, his body inflated again… F*ck, it’s not over yet?! Give it a break already!
But contrary to his expectations, he didn’t explode after inflating this time. He only turned into a balloon, and kept floating in the air. Afterward, ten or so red cloths popped out of his body, completely covering his appearance. Each of the red cloths hanging down from his body had auspicious words written on it.
“…” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.
Below, Medicine Master played the role of Feng Chuanzi and led Riverly Purple Mist, who was cast as Senior Sister Murong Hua, and slowly headed toward the wedding location.
In the meantime, Director Jacob specially reserved a close-up for Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.
Although the wedding ceremony was somewhat bizarre, what he was going to shoot in the end wasn’t an ancient-style wedding. After all, the movie was set in a parallel, futuristic world. As such, there wasn’t any problem with the wedding ceremony being modern in style.
Anyway, the main characters of the wedding ceremony scene finally entered the fray.
Medicine Master’s parents were already seated in there, beaming with joy. They had been waiting there for their son Medicine Master to come for a long time.
Medicine Master’s parents had white hair, but they their outward appearance looked very young.
Their strength wasn’t high, and they were only cultivators of the Third Stage Realm… actually, had they been ordinary cultivators of the Third Stage, their lifespan would be over already given their age.
However, Medicine Master had used special medicinal pills that could prolong one’s life to greatly increase the lifespan of his parents.
But precisely for this reason, Medicine Master’s parents impatiently wished to see their son getting married and have children before their death.
Without Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s interference, the shooting of the scene proceeded smoothly.
Feng Chuanzi and Murong Hua completed their marriage.
At the same time, Medicine Master and Riverly Purple Mist seized the opportunity to finalize their relationship.
During the shooting of the scene of the wedding ceremony, Riverly Purple Mist didn’t forget about the cameras and the script of the movie. As such, she tried her best to play the role of Murong Hua.
At first, she had an expectant look in her eyes and was waiting for the main character, Ling Ye, to arrive at the wedding in time. Later, a rather worried expression appeared on her face. Finally, she lost hope, and completed the marriage with Feng Chuanzi.
Since her current mood was very good, Riverly Purple Mist’s performance was also outstanding.
The whole shooting process was very smooth, and was completed without problems.
Director Jacob was very satisfied with this result.
Today’s shooting session had temporarily come to an end.
Even if the shooting of the movie had temporarily come to an end, the feast of the Nine Provinces Number One Group wouldn’t come to an end so easily. After all, today was the day of Medicine Master and Riverly Purple Mist’s wedding.
Riverly Purple Mist had arranged a big feast in secret. Although ordinary immortal chefs prepared the dishes, the alcohol was very good. After all, Riverly Purple Mist had been preparing for this day for years.
Tonight, the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, Song Shuhang and his friends, and even the members of the movie crew would all drink to their hearts’ content.
Gao Moumou and co., as well as the ordinary members of the movie crew, got drunk rather quickly, and were delivered to their rooms by Venerable Spirit Butterfly’s subordinates.
After drinking to his heart’s content, Song Shuhang swaggered outside and went to look for Senior Medicine Master. He was looking for Medicine Master to give him a congratulatory gift for his marriage. He thought about which gift he could give him, and remembered that Senior Medicine Master once had asked him if he had a several hundred years old green onion sprout. At this time, Song Shuhang just happened to have a fresh green onion sprout with him.
However, even after looking a while, the half-drunk and half-awake Song Shuhang was unable to find Senior Medicine Master. Well, it was kind of expected. Medicine Master had just married Riverly Purple Mist, and it was likely that the duo was in the middle of some action.
Thereupon, Song Shuhang decided to swagger back to his room.
At this time, outside the main entrance, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator and True Monarch Fallout were pulling Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber down from the sky.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator laughed, and said, “Thrice Reckless, are you still alive?”
During his presence in the Nine Provinces Number One Group, Song Shuhang noticed that the relationship between Northern River’s Loose Cultivator and Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was pretty good. He remembered that Northern River’s Loose Cultivator would remind Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber not to seek death each time the latter was acting recklessly.
The round and pale-looking Thrice Reckless Mad Saber weakly smiled.
“It seems he’s still living,” True Monarch Fallout said with a smile. After saying this much, he took a medicinal pill out of his clothes, and fed it to Thrice Reckless. “Swallow it down. This is the pill that Medicine Master prepared to relieve the effects of that man-made insect. It can allow you to recover some of your strength as well.”
After he swallowed the medicinal pill, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s round body quickly returned to normal.
At this time, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s skin was fair and tender, just like that of a newborn baby. Such a tender and delicate skin was enough to make female cultivators feel envy.
“I didn’t expect that Medicine Master’s man-made insect could also rejuvenate one’s skin.” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator teased him.
“I feel… as if I am about to die…” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber said in a hoarse voice.
Song Shuhang was passing by, and just happened to hear Senior Thrice Reckless’ words.
Perhaps because he was somewhat drunk, he swaggered toward them and squatted next to Thrice Reckless Mad Saber. Then, with a serious expression on his face, he said “Senior Thrice Reckless, do you have any last words in that case?”
“…” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator.
“…” True Monarch Fallout.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s eyes lit up. He needed but a glance to determine that little friend Song Shuhang was currently drunk. Therefore, he decided to tease him a bit to see what would happen. It was going to be rather amusing, right?
Thereupon, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber stretched out his shivering arm, and grabbed Song Shuhang’s hand. “Last words…? Indeed, I need some last words!”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator was at a loss of words. He felt that Thrice Reckless had started to seek death again.
The drunk Song Shuhang tightly grabbed Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s hand, and said, “Senior Thrice Reckless, what are your last words? I’ll write them down for you.”
“After my death… bury me between Medicine Master and Riverly Purple Mist. I couldn’t break them up while alive, so I should act like the third wheel after death and squeeze myself between them.” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was getting more vigorous as he was speaking.
Song Shuhang nodded his head and took out a small notebook, noting Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s last words on it.
“No… wait a moment!” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber suddenly sighed, and said, “Even if I were to die at this time, it’s unknown when Medicine Master or Riverly Purple Mist will die. Therefore, how can I even squeeze between them? These last words were somewhat inappropriate.”
“In that case, I’ll cross out these last words, alright?” Song Shuhang hiccuped due to the alcohol, and crossed out Senior Thrice Reckless’ last words.
“Such being the case, change it to… after my death, I want to be cremated,” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber said with an aggrieved expression on his face. The sound of his voice was getting weaker and weaker as he was speaking. “There is no need to prepare a grave or erect a gravestone for me… just sprinkle my ashes in the ocean; having my ashes disperse amidst the surging oceanic waves is my greatest wish.”
“No problem, Senior Thrice Reckless,” Song Shuhang said earnestly.
Shuhang wrote down Senior Thrice Reckless’ last words one more time. Then, he suddenly bent his waist and picked up Thrice Reckless, carrying him away on his shoulders.
The current Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was incredibly weak, and didn’t have the strength to revolt. “Little friend Shuhang, what are you doing? Quickly put me down!”
“Senior Thrice Reckless, don’t speak anymore. It’ll just consume your remaining energy,” Song Shuhang said with a serious expression on his face. “I’ll carry you to the crematorium and have you cremated. Afterward, I’ll take your ashes and ask Senior White to deliver me to the seashore. At that point, I’ll sprinkle your ashes in the ocean, and look at them disappear amidst the waves!”
The half-drunk and half-awake Song Shuhang had lost his ability to think. Not even he himself knew what he was doing. At this time, he had only one thought in mind: he wanted to bring the dying Senior Thrice Reckless Mad Saber to the crematorium and have him cremated.
Afterward, he would fulfill his dying wish and sprinkle his ashes in the ocean, and look at them as they disappeared amidst the churning oceanic waves.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was speechless.
F*ck, is little friend Song Shuhang serious?
“No! Little friend Song Shuhang, I was just joking! Northern River, quickly, save me!” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber called out.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator was at a loss of words, but for some reason, he was really looking forward to seeing the scene of Song Shuhang cremating Thrice Reckless Mad Saber. It was going to be rather amusing, right?
Thereupon, he stood in place and watched as Song Shuhang brought Thrice Reckless toward a distant place.
Unfortunately, Song Shuhang didn’t manage to cremate Thrice Reckless Mad Saber in the end.
After carrying Senior Thrice Reckless on his shoulder and walking for around 200 meters, Song Shuhang fell to the ground.
He fell to the ground in the middle of the road. Even Thrice Reckless Mad Saber, who was on his shoulder, was thrown far away.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s heart was still fluttering with fear as he watched little friend Song Shuhang falling asleep on the ground.
