Chapter 1556: Doudou-style hypocrisy
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
It was a dreadful development. One should not be too reckless!
It was like when there was a clear path that could lead to victory, but people would get restless and do something stupid.
For example, it was stated on news reports that there were many people who put a light bulb in their mouths and couldn’t get it out, resulting in them having to go to the hospital. Despite that, there would still be people who would feel that their mouths were big enough, and think that they would be able to do so without the light bulb getting stuck. As such, under a reckless impulse, they’d stuff a light bulb into their mouths…
Sometimes, humans were such interesting creatures.
At this time, Song Shuhang had this monster named ‘recklessness’ rampaging in his mind.
Song Shuhang said, “Theoretically, the energy refiner can extract the energy of the ‘core reactor’. The two should be able to become a set, and then be installed on the immortal boat. Afterward, when the pet-shaped manifestation core that Scholar Super Cudgel gave me is installed on the immortal boat as well, it should let the whole thing become a manifestation of myself. Thinking about it, it feels very interesting.”
Doudou chuckled. “Woof… Theoretically speaking, you haven’t blown yourself up, but isn’t there still a chance of you blowing up?”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Doudou, you’ve changed. In the past, you would only cause trouble but now, you’ve learned how to rend the hearts of others, and the rending is ruthless and accurate.
Doudou said, “But anyway, it’s not like we’re doing anything at the moment, so we can try it out.”
For Doudou, who was close to the Fifth Stage, space wasn’t a dangerous place. Even if Song Shuhang’s immortal boat exploded, he could still rely on his flaming wheels to fly to Yellow Mountain’s immortal cave on the moon, and wait for Yellow Mountain to pick him up there.
“Then, let’s try it out…” Song Shuhang held the ‘Core Reactor’ and ‘Energy Refiner’ and studied them.
Doudou said, “However, there is still a problem… These two things aren’t compatible. If you want to merge them, you will need to modify them. Can you modify them?”
“…” Song Shuhang.
He had no idea how to modify or forge magical treasures on his own, which was why he’d invited Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue to forge his magical treasure, while doing only the final assembly himself.
Song Shuhang said, “Alright, let’s go back and ask the seniors in the group.”
If I don’t understand local affairs, I simply need to ask Brother Baidu; if I don’t understand foreign affairs, I simply need to ask Brother Google; and if I don’t understand something related to cultivation, I simply need to ask the seniors in Nine Provinces Number One Group.
By relying on his five cores to power up the immortal boat, although they would fly a little slower, they should be able to get back to Earth.
After returning, he planned on going to Senior Thrice Reckless to better understand the principles of the ‘charging technique’ and see if he could upgrade it so that he would be able to charge the ‘immortal boat’.
When Song Shuhang was about to get the immortal boat back up and have it fly back slowly, a man dressed as a miner appeared right in front of the shuttle-shaped immortal boat.
The man stood on his pickaxe as he flew in front of Song Shuhang’s immortal boat, knocked on the immortal boat, and said, “Fellow Daoists, why have you stopped here?”
He saw Song Shuhang’s immortal boat floating in space without even raising its defensive cover, so he came over and inquired curiously.
Song Shuhang replied, “It’s fine, it’s just that the immortal boat’s energy has been consumed, so the emergency measures were activated, and it has temporarily come to a stop.”
“So that’s the case. Are you fellow daoists heading to the moon? If you are, then this humble daoist can lend you a hand~ This humble daoist, Idler Zhu Shan, is engaged in the trade of refining ores. If fellow daoists have any need for such things in the future, you can come to the moon and order from this humble daoist. Now, time to go!” After Idler Zhu Shan said this, he raised his leg and slammed it against Song Shuhang’s immortal boat.
He looked so skilled with the kick that it seemed that he had done this kind of thing many times.
Moreover, his strength control was excellent. The force of this foot acted on Song Shuhang’s immortal boat, giving the vehicle the power to move forward without damaging it.
The shuttle-shaped immortal boat whooshed forward and rushed towards the moon.
“…” Song Shuhang.
In the distance, Idler Zhu Shan waved his hand vigorously with a bright smile on his face.
Song Shuhang said, “Actually, I wanted to return to Earth.”
Doudou said, “Since we’re already here, it would be safer to just head to the moon. I’ll take you to Yellow Mountain’s immortal cave on the moon. There should be a reserve of spirit stones in his immortal cave. Let’s steal some, and then drive the immortal boat back to Earth.”
“Stealing from Senior Yellow Mountain’s immortal cave sounds interesting, but… we should forget about it.” Song Shuhang immediately thought of someone who had stolen from Senior Yellow Mountain once, and was then suppressed for many years, as well as teased by Senior Yellow Mountain’s smurf accounts.
He didn’t want to become Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist Two.
There were some things that were very exciting to do, but the price you’d have to pay for doing them was too high.
“Tsk, it is indeed true that Thrice Reckless gets along better with me. Last time, when I mentioned secretly stealing Stupid Yellow Mountain’s immortal brew, he immediately worked together with me to do so,” Doudou said with a smile.
Song Shuhang asked, “What happened later?”
Doudou raised his head and held his chest up high. “Nothing happened as I’m the most reliable. After Stupid Yellow Mountain found out that his immortal brew was gone, I immediately took responsibility and took on all the charges. As such, if we go steal some spirit stones from Yellow Mountain, when Yellow Mountain finds out, I can simply bear all the responsibility.”
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “Doudou, your biting-the-hand-that-feeds-you-sickness is too serious. If you really do find a male dog in the future and get married… Senior Yellow Mountain’s reserves won’t be emptied out by you, will they?”
“Woof, don’t talk about marriage to me.” Doudou immediately tried changing the topic when this topic was raised.
Did his last wedding have that big of an impact on him?
Doudou added, “Don’t mention male dogs with me, either. I’ve been trying to adjust my mental state recently.”
“?” Song Shuhang.
He kept on getting the feeling that something happened to Doudou.
Song Shuhang curiously asked, “Are you really a female dog, Doudou?”
Doudou angrily said, “You are a female dog— Ugh, you are a woman! And your whole family is women!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
His gaze couldn’t help but shift to Doudou’s tail.
“My little Doudou is still there, don’t look at it. I’ll bite you if you look there again.” Doudou gritted his teeth. “Next time I go out, I have to remember to wear a pair of pants.”
“Hahaha.” Song Shuhang laughed and turned his head back.
Then, he began to search through his magical bracelet and the Inner World to see if there was anything there that could replace spirit stones and charge the immortal boat with enough energy to bring them back to Earth.
While he was searching, Song Shuhang’s eyes suddenly lit up. He took out a bunch of spirit stones from his magical bracelet and the Inner World.
Doudou asked, “Eh? Didn’t you say that all your spirit stones have been used up?”
Song Shuhang said, “These spirit stones are the loot that I just got from the Celestials after killing a few. However, because the loot was casually stored, I almost forgot about them.”
When Celestials went hunting, they didn’t bring that many spirit stones with them. However, Song Shuhang killed a lot of them. In the first wave, he had already ground over 50 Celestials, and today he had gone through another wave.
The only lackluster thing about this was that most of the spirit stones were of the Fourth and Fifth Stage.
He hadn’t searched through the body of that Sixth Stage Celestial yet, but that guy should have Sixth Stage spirit stones. However, the petrified state of that Sixth Stage Celestial had yet to dissipate, so he had to wait a while before searching it for loot.
Song Shuhang stuffed all the spirit stones into the immortal boat in one breath.
After adding enough energy, the operation interface of the immortal boat brightened up again.
“Let’s go!” Song Shuhang manipulated the immortal boat, turned it, and locked it onto the course for Earth.
The immortal boat’s defensive formation reappeared.
Song Shuhang stretched out his hand, and the immortal boat’s appearance changed into its mecha form—in this form, the immortal boat could use the ‘crazy escape mode’.
He wanted to experience that feeling of ‘extreme stimulation’ again.
“Be careful… there is someone up ahead,” Doudou shouted at this moment.
After the immortal boat adjusted its direction, there happened to be a fairy maiden sitting on a golden, book-like magical treasure passing in front of Song Shuhang.
At this moment, the fairy maiden’s eyes were wide open as she stared at Song Shuhang’s immortal boat. The shuttle-shaped immortal boat, which had suddenly turned into a ‘mecha’, had attracted her attention.
The fairy maiden covered her mouth and smiled as she transmitted her voice. “Fellow Daoist, your immortal boat is very interesting.”
Song Shuhang responded, “Thank you.”
After saying that, she stood up from her golden book magical treasure. “Is Fellow Daoist returning to Earth?”
Song Shuhang replied, “Yes.”
The fairy maiden asked, “Then, is it convenient for me to hitch a ride?”
She was wearing a lavender dress, and her long brown hair was carefully braided and hung over her left shoulder. Her long bangs covered her eyes, making her look rather delicate.
Normally, even if the other party was a beautiful fairy maiden, Song Shuhang would be wary of having the other party get in his ride since it was their first time meeting.
However, when he saw this fairy maiden, although he didn’t know her, he felt an inexplicable sense of familiarity.
“There is naturally no problem with that. Helping others is the foundation of happiness.” Song Shuhang transformed the immortal boat from its mecha form to its minivan form.
“It can actually change further? Does it have three forms?” the fairy maiden asked through voice transmission.
“Mm-hm, it has three forms for the time being.” Song Shuhang opened the minivan’s door. The defensive cover outside the immortal boat prevented the atmosphere from leaking out.
The fairy maiden retrieved her life-bound golden book and entered the vehicle.
Doudou turned his head, and asked, “Big Sister Fairy, what’s your name?”
“Feel free to call me whatever you want,” the fairy mai9den replied while holding the shrunken life-bound golden book.
The fairy maiden solemnly said, “You can call me Jingye.”
“Fairy Quiet Night? It sounds very poetic,” Doudou replied hypocritically, and then lost interest in her. Her name isn’t Chu Chu, boring.
“By the way, Shuhang, can I drive the immortal boat?” Doudou had become interested in driving the immortal boat.
“You can drive?” Song Shuhang looked at Doudou’s monster dog form.
“I can drive. In fact, I’ve secretly driven several times, but Yellow Mountain doesn’t know,” Doudou said with a smile.
After a while.
Doudou took the driver’s seat.
In the rear, the seats were all pushed down, and the inflatable bed was taken out. The fairy maiden seemed very capable at discovering the various hidden mechanisms.
Song Shuhang and the fairy lay on the inflatable bed, looking at the scene in space through the glass of the vehicle’s skylight.
