Song Shuhang just happened to have a large box full of immortal clothing with him; the clothes inside were both exquisite and beautiful. Since he had so many clothes with him, he was at a loss how to deal with them.
But right at this time, Sixteen said she needed clothes. It seemed there was some fate between Sixteen and those clothes. Song Shuhang had already thought of giving Sixteen those clothes and now was a good opportunity.
The box with the clothes was currently inside Song Shuhang's size-reducing purse. However, it wasn't convenient to take them out at this time.
Therefore, Song Shuhang planned to bring Sixteen somewhere else and let her have a good look at the various clothes inside the box and see if she liked any of them.
Su Clan's Sixteen looked at Song Shuhang strangely. Then, she pushed her umbrella into Song Shuhang's hand and said, "Alright. Let's go then."
Song Shuhang grabbed the umbrella and said, "Come with me. My vehicle is parked in the parking lot of the train station."
The umbrella wasn't too big, and while it was fine to cover the petite Sixteen, it got somewhat crowded when a big guy like Song Shuhang joined.
Song Shuhang tried to cover Sixteen as much as possible with the umbrella. Even if he got soaked, he could seize the opportunity and use that method involving the usage of true qi to dry one's clothes that Sixteen told him about.
In the parking area.
Sixteen looked at the SUV with the smashed rear and asked, "Is this your vehicle?"
"Ahaha... actually, it was a brand-new vehicle before I drove it till here." After saying this much, Song Shuhang heaved a long sigh and continued, "But when I was in the parking area of the City of Cinema, I just happened to meet Fairy Dongfang Six, who was trying to reverse her car at that time..."
Su Clan's Sixteen nodded and couldn't help but laugh. From the looks of it, the 'kamikaze driver' Fairy Dongfang Six had bumped into Song Shuhang's vehicle.
Luckily, even if the rear of the vehicle was smashed and flattened a bit, the rest was still fine. Song Shuhang could drive it without problems.
He would just need to look for a repair shop and have them fix it when he had the time.
After getting into the SUV, Song Shuhang first headed toward Venerable White's garage next to Jiangnan University Town. He couldn't drive this vehicle with a smashed rear when driving his friends back home.
In the afternoon, 4:40 PM.
Song Shuhang arrived at the garage and exchanged the SUV for an ordinary commercial vehicle.
In addition, it just so happened that a repair shop was right next to the garage. Thereupon, Song Shuhang conveniently delivered the SUV to the repair shop.
...There was still a lot of super luxurious cars in the garage, but Song Shuhang had no intention of driving them. After all, he had to bring his three friends back home tomorrow, and if he were to use one of those fancy cars, he would need to explain a lot of things and bring unnecessary troubles upon himself.
On the road.
Song Shuhang asked, "Sixteen, do you already have a place where you can stay?"
"I don't. Senior Creation brought me to the Jiangnan area this morning, and I still didn't have the time to look for a place to live," Su Clan's Sixteen, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, said.
"In that case, how about going with me to Yu Jiaojiao's place and staying there for a few days?" Song Shuhang said.
"Yu Jiaojiao? Who is that?" Su Clan's Sixteen slightly raised her eyes. From the sound of it, it seemed the name of a girl...
"She's the daughter of True Monarch Tyrant Flood Dragon, a member of the Nine Provinces Number One Group. He is precisely that person with the long nickname 'Tyrant Flood Dragon wants to father a football team'. Anyway, she's half-flood dragon and half-mermaid," Song Shuhang replied.
"What's her current realm?" Sixteen asked casually.
"She's at the Fourth Stage Realm. You don't want to challenge her to a fight, right?" Song Shuhang asked. From what Song Shuhang knew, Sixteen and Seven were very similar, and their hobby apparently consisted in challenging other people to battle. In short, they were battle maniacs.
Back then, when Sixteen was breaking through, Seven happily wrote in the group that he would bring her around and have her challenge to battle the various seniors of the group after the tribulation.
"Don't worry. I don't want to challenge her to battle," Su Clan's Sixteen said with a smile. Since she was a half-flood dragon and half-mermaid of the Fourth Stage, she shouldn't have the capacity to transform into a human just yet. "If that Miss Yu Jiaojiao is willing, I'll disturb her for a few days."
"Good, it's settled then," Song Shuhang said.
The vehicle kept advancing on the road.
But right at this time, Song Shuhang's mobile phone suddenly rang.
He glanced at the screen of the phone and discovered that the caller was Great Master Profound Principle's layman disciple, Senior Brother Three Realms. Song Shuhang stopped the vehicle on the side road and picked up the phone.
"Hello, Senior Brother Three Realms. Is something the matter?" Song Shuhang asked.
"Shuhang, where are you now? Oh, wrong question. I should ask you first if you have free time these days. Can you leave your place?" Senior Brother Three Realms asked quickly.
"Yes, I can head out if I want to. Is something the matter?" Song Shuhang asked. Was it possible that Guoguo had run away from home again to treat his hemorrhoids?
"If you have the possibility to head out, that's good. Do you remember the 'Jingang token of authority' I gave you the last time?" Senior Brother Three Realms asked.
Song Shuhang replied, "Yes, I do."
The Jingang token of authority was the key to enter the Jingang Immortal Cave and learn the follow-up technique of the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ belonging to the Jingang Temple. It was a powerful fist technique with eight styles. The strength of its moves ranged from the Second to the Fifth Stage.
There was also the heart-tempering ancient well inside the immortal cave. If cultivators looked inside the well, their inner desires and ambitions would get stimulated along with their most reserved thoughts.
After these thoughts and desires resurfaced, one could overcome them through the heart-tempering ancient well, strengthening their state of mind.
All cultivators below the Fifth Stage Realm could obtain pretty good benefits in there.
One needed the Jingang token of authority—as well as six spirit stones of the Fourth Stage as a fee—to enter the Jingang Immortal Cave.
After carrying out that transaction with Daoist Priest Horizon and obtaining some spirit stones, Song Shuhang had already considered heading toward the Jingang Immortal Cave if there was a chance so that he could try to learn the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯.
Senior Brother Three Realms said, "Yesterday, the ancient well suddenly erupted and turned into a fountain. Many disciples of our Faraway Wandering Temple entered the immortal cave and obtained a lot of benefits, with thirteen of them even grasping part of the ❮Demon Subduing Buddhist Fist Technique❯. From what I understand, this is a very rare opportunity; now that the ancient well has turned into a fountain, it's even easier to learn the fist technique. Moreover, this fountain won't last for long. Therefore, you should seize the opportunity while you can. If you have free time, I can bring you to the Jingang Immortal Cave, where you can try to learn the technique. If you don't have enough spirit stones at this time, I can pay up in advance for you."
Senior Brother Three Realms owed Song Shuhang several small favors. For example, when Guoguo came over and caused Shuhang a lot of trouble.
Therefore, when the ancient well erupted, Senior Brother Three Realms immediately thought of Song Shuhang and decided to give a hand while he was at it.
"Thank you, Senior Brother Three Realms," Song Shuhang said. "In addition, you don't need to worry about spirit stones. I got my hands on a good sum of spirit stones recently. Right, Senior Brother... how many people can the Jingang token of authority allow me to carry along? I can pay the fee for each person if necessary."
Senior Brother Three Realms replied, "Sigh... fine. I'll put in a good word for you this time and allow you to carry along other people. Give me your address; I'll contact you."
"Thank you, Senior Brother," Song Shuhang said with a smile. Afterward, he gave the address of Yu Jiaojiao's villa to Senior Brother Three Realms.
The effects of the heart-tempering ancient well in the Jingang Immortal Cave were very beneficial to cultivators. Therefore, he wanted Sixteen and Yu Jiaojiao to come with him as well.
After hanging up the phone, Song Shuhang said to Sixteen, "Sixteen, how about going to the Jingang Immortal Cave together?"
"Sure." Su Clan's Sixteen looked at Song Shuhang and said, "But I don't have spirit stones with me at this time."
"I can pay for you," Song Shuhang said.
Su Clan's Sixteen leaned against the seat and asked, "Good, I'll owe you this one. Right, how much money did I owe you the last time?"
"I have long forgotten," Song Shuhang said with a smile.
The vehicle kept speeding along the road, quickly arriving at Yu Jiaojiao's villa.
Just as Song Shuhang returned to the villa, the heavy rain also stopped. The air was fresh and clean after the rain.
As soon as Song Shuhang arrived at the door of the villa, he smelled the fragrance of alcohol.
Had they drunk again?
Song Shuhang and Su Clan's Sixteen arrived in front of the door and rang the doorbell.
"Who is it?" Yu Jiaojiao's voice echoed. Her voice was spiritless, just as though she was drunk.
Song Shuhang replied, "Jiaojiao, it's me. I've returned."
"Oh, I'm coming," Yu Jiaojiao replied.
Afterward, the sound of footsteps echoed.
The lock of the door turned, and a long, white leg kicked the door, pushing it open... the door of Yu Jiaojiao's villa opened towards the outside.
After the door was kicked open, two long, white legs as well as five jade-white toes appeared before their eyes.
Those legs were so beautiful that one could look at them for a lifetime.
A little above was a short skirt that covered them until the knees. Further above was Jiaojiao's cute and lovely upper half.
Song Shuhang glanced at the interior of the villa from his position. As expected, his poor friends had been KO'd.
Gao Moumou, whose capacity for alcohol was the worst, was already lying on the table, mumbling something in drunken language.
Tubo and Yangde were also dizzy and couldn't walk steadily.
"You drank again?" Song Shuhang forced a smile and said, "In addition, you drank together with Gao Moumou and the others while in your true form?"
"Don't worry. I didn't get drunk." Strong smell of alcohol came from Yu Jiaojiao's mouth as she said, "In addition, I used a magical technique on my body, and in the eyes of ordinary people I have my mother's appearance. I won't give your friends a scare."
"..." Song Shuhang.
Is it possible that Yu Jiaojiao's hobby is drinking? I didn't know that she had this hobby earlier! How come she can't resist the urge of getting drunk lately?
"You came back just in time. How about accompanying me for a drink?" Yu Jiaojiao said. At this time, she noticed Su Clan's Sixteen, who was standing behind Song Shuhang's body.
After a moment of surprise, she guessed, "Is it possible that you are Fellow Daoist Su Clan's Sixteen?"
"Nice to meet you, Fellow Daoist Jiaojiao," Su Clan's Sixteen replied with a smile.
"No need to stand on ceremony, you can consider this place your own. Right, do you want to drink a cup or two with me?" Yu Jiaojiao said.
"I won't drink today." Song Shuhang waved his hand and said, "Jiaojiao, Senior Brother Three Realms will come here in a while to carry us to the Jingang Immortal Cave. It just so happens that the heart-tempering ancient well in the cave has erupted and turned into a fountain, with its strengthening effects getting amplified. I think we should seize the opportunity and go there to take a look."
"The heart-tempering ancient well in the Jingang Immortal Cave?" Yu Jiaojiao was confused. From the looks of it, she hadn't heard about this place before.
"Jiaojiao, how about tagging along? The heart-tempering ancient well has very good effects that are extremely beneficial to cultivators," Song Shuhang said. Yu Jiaojiao had helped him a quite a lot during the past few days. Therefore, he wished to return the favor a bit.
"Oh..." Yu Jiaojiao turned her head around and looked at the lame Gao Moumou. Gao Moumou was dead drunk at this time, and from the looks of it, he wouldn't be able to write characters today, either.
Forget it. I'll let him off the hook this time.
However, I will get the other two guys dead drunk before leaving.
In the meantime, Song Shuhang brought Sixteen to his room and took a box out of his size-reducing purse...
