Song Shuhang asked, “Eh? Sister White Dragon, how can you be so certain? Didn’t you say that if the mirage dragon transforms into food, it will be exceedingly difficult to find it?”
The White Dragon smiled softly, and said, “No matter what, I’m still the ancestral dragon. Even if it might be difficult for others to locate it, I still have some certainty in finding it.”
Song Shuhang said, “I guess that’s true.” At this moment, Soft Feather suddenly said, “By the way, Senior Song, our illness is getting more and more serious.” Song Shuhang asked, “What?” Soft Feather said, “I mean that our condition is getting more and more serious. I did a few small experiments after you entered the ‘fighting space’ to bully those Second Stage juniors, and discovered that the memory retention of the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group when it came to memories related to me is getting shorter and shorter.”
Song Shuhang said, “Soft Feather, stop speaking nonsense. I didn’t go in to bully juniors — Wait, our condition is getting worse?”
When they had been thrown into the Wielder’s small black room, their presence was erased. Now, when they chatted with others, they would be soon forgotten by the other party.
They were already suffering effects to such a degree, yet it was still getting worse?
“Mm-hm. I’ve tested it. Here, let me give you an example.” Soft Feather turned her head, and called Northern River’s Loose Cultivator, “Senior Northern River.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator raised his head, smiled, and said, “Fairy Fefe, did you just call me?”
However, right after he said that, he raised his eyebrows and squeezed his chin. “Strange, who called me just now?”
After saying that, he lowered his head again, picked up the teacup, and sipped on it.
Before, they would still be able to speak a few sentences with everyone, but now, they were getting forgotten right after the greetings.
Song Shuhang was puzzled. “Could the current Wielder of the Will have increased the power of our small black room?”
Soft Feather said, “There’s a good chance of that having happened. After all, we did escape from prison. Maybe we have been punished further because of this, with our original ‘lesser invisibility’ being upgraded to ‘greater invisibility’.”
“Then, how long are we going to be in this state?” Song Shuhang looked up at the sky, his liver in pain.
It was good to experience the life of the invisible scholar for a period of time, but he really did not want to be like this for his entire life.
The White Dragon said, “It might be a good thing.”
Song Shuhang responded, “Huh?”
The White Dragon guessed, “Perhaps the intensity of your condition is related to your sentence. As your presence gets weaker, it signifies that your sentence is also coming to an end. After your presence has completely disappeared, you might get released from prison.”
Song Shuhang sighed faintly. “Thank you, Sister White Dragon, for your comforting words…”
The chances of our current state being timed are near zero. It’s simply because Sister White Dragon has a gentle personality that she’s using such a method to comfort us.
Senior White put down his chopsticks, and seriously said, “If your sentence is really coming to an end, you have to find a way to send yourselves back into the ‘Wielder’s small black room’. Otherwise, if your sentence does end and you aren’t inside the small black room, you might end up getting a worse punishment.”
Soft Feather chuckled, and said, “I think that… maybe we could have already gotten a heavier punishment? Perhaps the current Wielder of the Will had only been planning to detain us for a few days, but when the time came for us to be released, it found that we were no longer there. With that, it might have increased the intensity of our invisible state.”
Song Shuhang felt that Soft Feather’s speculation was more likely to be correct. Soft Feather said, “Senior Song, do you think that they’ll forget to serve us our shares of the dishes in the Immortal Feast?”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Senior White said, “Don’t worry. The dishes in the Immortal Feast are generally served in large portions.”
While they were talking, a group of young girls began to serve food.
A large pot that occupied half of the table was given to their table… it was really big.
If this was the case, they didn’t have to worry about the Immortal Feast too much.
Meanwhile, at Loli Shi’s table.
Shi carefully wrapped the Winged Whale King’s head and prepared to put it away.
She had only gotten to taste it a bit when the dishes of the Immortal Feast began to be served.
As such, she wanted to keep the Winged Whale King head for later, and fill her stomach with the set meal from the Immortal Feast first.
In addition, she kept on getting the feeling that she was supposed to share this whale head with someone else. She wanted to share this immortal dish with a person…
It was just that she couldn’t recall who that person was.
Shi thought to herself, Maybe it’s Zhu… Zhu didn’t get to participate in the Immortal Feast this time, so maybe she’s the one who I’ve been feeling like I should give a share of this whale head to.
In their sect, she was closest with Zhu, and she would also think of Zhu right away whenever something good came her way.
After three rounds of drinking…
Profound Sage Winter Melon strode over and approached Song Shuhang. “Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song,” Profound Sage Winter Melon called out in a deep voice.
Song Shuhang got up from his seat and looked at Profound Sage Winter Melon.
“Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, this is a rare opportunity, so why don’t we compare notes a bit?” Profound Sage Winter Melon revealed a hearty smile.
Song Shuhang waved his hand calmly, and said, “Fellow Daoist Winter Melon, you don’t need to be so anxious to have a battle with me. On October 10th, above the Forbidden City, we can meet up and have ourselves another match.”
“October 10th? That’s fine by me.” Profound Sage Winter Melon nodded.
Song Shuhang struck the iron while it was hot. “Very Good. Let’s set our appointed battle to be at that time.”
Profound Sage Winter Melon responded, “Okay, it’s a deal.”
After saying that, Profound Sage Winter Melon left with a content look… but when he left, he scratched his head again. A battle above the Forbidden City on October 10th? Why does this feel so familiar? Did I make a similar appointment with Profound Sage Tyrannical Song before?
While thinking about this, Profound Sage Winter Melon returned to his seat.
Then, he fell into a state of contemplation.
Soon after, a scholar who was waving a fan approached Song Shuhang.
The man dressed as a scholar said, “Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, this is a rare opportunity, so why don’t we compare notes?” He was not speaking Mandarin and had his Sage Seal quietly appear beside him, having it play the role of an interpreter, translating his words into a language that Song Shuhang could understand.
This scholar was also a Profound Sage… and he was an old Profound Sage who had ascended to the Eighth Stage thousands of years ago.
A Profound Sage’s Sage Seal also has a translation function?
Why doesn’t my Sage Seal seem to have it?
Could it be because I am a fake Profound Sage? Song Shuhang silently said in his mind.
In addition, did this guy and Profound Sage Winter Melon have a meeting before this? Their lines were exactly the same!
Song Shuhang stood up once again, and modestly said, “Fellow Daoist, there’s no need to rush to compare notes. How about this, let’s meet above the Forbidden City on the 10th of October. At that time, I hope that fellow daoist can point out my shortcomings.”
Anyway, he was half-invisible right now.
Come, no matter which Profound Sage it is that wants to exchange pointers with me, I will accept! On October 10th, let us all meet in the sky above the Forbidden City and have a good battle between Profound Sages! That is, if you can still remember me at that time
I am invisible and proudly so.
“October 10th? Sure, after the Immortal Feast is over, I will stay for a few more days.” The scholar waved his fan and smiled. “However, why does Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song look so confident?”
No, no, Senior. I’m not confident, I’m just proud – Anyway, it’s not like you’ll remember that you set an appointment with me.
Song Shuhang smiled brightly, and said, “Haha, it’s not that I am confident. I just feel that being able to fight against an old Profound Sage like you, Fellow Daoist, will bring me a lot of benefits, so I can’t help but get excited.”
“Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song, I quite like your character.” The scholar nodded, and said, “Then, on October 10th, let us meet in the sky above the Forbidden City.”
After the scholar finished speaking, he tapped his Profound Sage Seal.
He showed his Sage Name to Song Shuhang.
His name belonged to a complicated script of another world. However, through the similar translation function of the Sage Seal, Song Shuhang could roughly understand the meaning of this Sage Name.
His Sage Name is Three Weeks.
After displaying his Sage Name, Sage Monarch Three Weeks smiled and returned to his seat.
Then, similar to Profound Sage Winter Melon, he fell into a state of contemplation.
Another appointment had been set.
Not long after Sage Monarch Three Weeks left, Sage Monarch Blue Phoenix approached Song Shuhang
Sigh, can’t you at least let me eat a bit? After sighing, Song Shuhang stood up, smiled, and said, “Fairy Blue Phoenix, have you also come to ask to exchange pointers with me?”
“Huh? Yes.” Fairy Blue Phoenix nodded slightly.
Song Shuhang said, “Fairy, I don’t think that today is the best time for us to compare notes. So, how about some other time and place?” Fairy Blue Phoenix said, “Huh? Okay.”
Song Shuhang waved his big hand, and said, “I feel that October 10th is a pretty good day. How about you come and meet me in the sky above the Forbidden City at that time and have a match with me?”
Song Shuhang found that he was quite the smooth talker.
“October 10th? Three days from now on?” Fairy Blue Phoenix nodded after thinking for a moment. “Okay, then the 10th it is.”
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “At that time, I’ll ask Fairy Blue Phoenix to provide me with some guidance.”
“Mm-hm.” Fairy Blue Phoenix nodded slightly while looking thoughtful.
After that, Song Shuhang cupped his fists at Fairy Blue Phoenix.
Fairy Blue Phoenix seemed to have thought of something, and her face suddenly turned red. “Then, I’ll see you on the 10th.”
After saying that, she returned to her seat.
Similar to the previous two Sage Monarch, she fell into a state of contemplation after returning to her seat.
Song Shuhang sighed.
It was simply getting annoying.
At the side, Soft Feather giggled, and said, “Senior Song is great. You’re going to be facing three Profound Sages all in a single day.” Song Shuhang said, “None of them will be able to remember it, so it’s fine to just agree with them for now. It’s better than being forced to fight today.”
After saying that, he let out another sigh. “This situation has made me appreciate the fact that I’m invisible.”
He was able to save himself a lot of trouble.
Senior White, who was beside him, pinched his chin and fell into thought.
He now had a question in his mind-if Song Shuhang’s current state were to be cured someday, would everyone forget everything that had taken place during his time? Or would they suddenly remember everything? After thinking for a while, Senior White nodded slightly.
Mm-hm, there’s no need to worry about this matter as of the moment.
Song Shuhang and the rest had been locked up in the small black room just recently, and they would definitely not be released too quickly. Therefore, in the future, when everyone remembered the appointments that they had set on the 10th, the day would have already long passed. At that time, it wouldn’t be Song Shuhang who had breached the contract; instead, it would have been them who had not come.
Soon after Fairy Blue Phoenix returned to her seat, the red-haired Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream also came over. “Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song,” Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream called out with a smile.
She was a Profound Sage of the ancient witch system, and she concentrated on researching and restoring the legacy of the ancient witches.
Song Shuhang stood up, and responded, “Fellow Daoist Enchanting Dream, are you also looking for me to compare notes with me?” “Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song is the first Sage in a thousand years, and everyone is very interested in you. Moreover, you also have the Demon Name ‘Tyrannical Scholar’. A lot of fellow daoists want to understand you in greater depth.” Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream flicked her red hair, and added, “I am no exception.”
Song Shuhang said, “October 10th.”
Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream responded, “Hm?”
“I feel that October 10th is a good day. As such, I believe it best for Fellow Daoist Enchanting Dream to come and meet me in the sky above the Forbidden City and have a good exchange with me at that time. When the time comes, we can have an entire day to compare notes and exchange pointers, isn’t that great?” Song Shuhang smiled.
Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream keenly said, “Why do I feel as if Fellow Daoist Tyrannical Song had these lines already prepared?”
Song Shuhang replied, “I know that everyone is very interested in me, but we’re in the middle of the Immortal Feast, and I hope that I can eat my fill. Something like exchanging pointers can wait another day. Additionally, I believe that it isn’t good to be moving around so much while stuffing oneself up.”
Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream laughed. “Profound Sage Tyrannical Song, you have a better sense of humor than I thought.”
“Sense of humor?” Song Shuhang raised his eyebrows. Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream was the first to praise him for this.
Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream said, “Then, I guess I’ll see you on the 10th. Anyway, I have a lot of free time.”
After saying that, she returned to her seat.
Just like the previous Sage Monarchs, after sitting down, she also fell into a state of contemplation. Song Shuhang sighed softly. Soft Feather said, “Senior Song, excluding the seniors in the Nine Provinces Number One Group, there are seven Profound Sages at the Immortal Feast this time.”
These seven were only the ones who had been willing to make an entrance with their identity as a Profound Sage. It was possible that there were still more Profound Sages who hadn’t shown themselves.
After all, this time’s Immortal Feast was open to the entire universe.
According to the words of Sage Monarch Enchanting Dream, all of the Profound Sages who came to participate in the Immortal Feast are interested in Senior Song. Perhaps each of them will come over and ask Senior Song to exchange pointers with them… Song Shuhang softly said, “It’s great that I’m still invisible.”
No matter how many Profound Sages came, he could push the appointment to be on October 10th.
It was better than having to deal with the waves upon waves of Profound Sages today.
At this moment, the White Dragon suddenly said, “Hmm? The scent is getting closer and closer.”
Song Shuhang asked, “The mirage dragon?”
“Yes, it seems that the mirage dragon is really hidden among the dishes of the Immortal Feast.” The White Dragon shrank and emerged from Sixteen’s body, gazing at the Immortal Feast venue.
If they could find the mirage dragon, Sixteen could wake up a little sooner.
