Chapter 337: The newly developed disposable flying sword 005 edition
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Senior, that ant is so cute, don't poke it to death!
When she saw Venerable White poke the ant, a sad feeling welled up in Copper Trigram's heart… she felt a certain sympathy for the ant, as though they were the same entity.
"G-good morning, Venerable White," Copper Trigram said in a robot-like voice.
Venerable White stretched his hand out and drew a circle on the ground, enclosing the thirty or so ants. Then, he raised his head and said to Copper Trigram, "Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram, can you perform a divination for me? I want to know if those members of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Sect will show up today."
"Sure, I'll do it immediately." Immortal Master Copper Trigram lowered the intensity of the flames beneath the barbeque. Afterward, she took out the tortoise shell and started to shake it, making the three copper coins inside fall to the ground.
After falling to the ground, the three copper coins rolled for a while before arranging themselves into a shape that resembled the character '品'. Immortal Master Copper Trigram shot a glance at the character '品' formed by the coins and started to count on her fingers.
Song Shuhang wasn't an expert in divinations. Therefore, he had no idea what the result was.
In the next moment, Copper Trigram heartily laughed. "Senior White, you don't have to worry! Those guys from the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Sect will come for sure today. You'll be able to catch them with one swoop!"
"I see." Venerable White silently nodded—in other words, the members of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Sect would not come today.
Seriously, those guys are so inefficient at handling things. Even when it comes to saving their friends, they're so slow…
Copper Trigram revealed a charming smile and said, "In that case, Senior, shall I keep grilling the food?"
"Oh, sure." Venerable White nodded.
Copper Trigram immediately heaved a sigh of relief—it seemed she had avoided a calamity.
Thereupon, Copper Trigram increased the intensity of the fire once more and kept grilling the food.
In the next moment, Venerable White also asked, "Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram, are you trying to gather a large amount of 'luck'? The altar you built yesterday was used by the ancient 'Witch Clan' to offer sacrifices to the gods and strengthen the luck of their clansmen, right?"
Copper Trigram made a hollow laugh and nodded—she needed a great deal of luck for her disciple, Immortal Fortune Teller Iron Trigram.
Venerable White continued, "However, you are not a member of the ancient Witch Clan. Therefore, that altar is of no use to you."
Copper Trigram heaved a sigh. It was nothing but a last-ditch effort to salvage a hopeless situation.
Venerable White faintly smiled and said, "Anyway, if you need 'luck', I have a something good that might come in handy."
Immortal Master Copper Trigram immediately opened her eyes wide. "Senior White, which item are you talking about?"
Song Shuhang also came over. He was curious as to what kind of mystical treasure could increase one's luck.
"Look carefully." Venerable White stretched his right hand out and gently tapped it with the finger of the other hand.
In the next instant, a small object that resembled a tail appeared in Venerable White's palm.
"It's a treasure I found the last time I went into secluded meditation. I found it when I was digging into the earth to create the room where I was going to close up. Although it's just the piece of a tail, this treasure is still a first-class item when it comes to 'luck'," Venerable White said calmly.
Song Shuhang curiously looked at the object in Senior White's palm and asked, "What is this thing? Is it the tail of a fish?"
"It's not the tail of a fish, it's the tail of a dragon." Immortal Master Copper Trigram opened her eyes wide and sighed with emotion. "Moreover, it's not the tail of an ordinary dragon. This tail was left behind after the dragon solidified its dragon luck, right?"
"Correct. Although its luck is not comparable to that of a city or a nation, 1 and it's only a small amount of solidified luck, it's still not bad if you want to help someone," Venerable White said with a smile.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram nodded, and her face had written the following words all over: I want it! This expression seemed to tell others: 'I want this thing. Come, rip me off. Rip me off as much as you want!'
Venerable White said, "This lucky tail is of no use to me. Therefore, I can temporarily lend it to you."
Venerable White's own luck was already heaven-defying. The luck of this tail had basically no effect on him.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram patted her chest and said, "Senior White, even if you to ask me to go through fire and water, I won't refuse!"
"Don't worry. My request isn't too difficult," Venerable White continued with an enchanting smile on his face. "Recently, I agreed that I would act as a matchmaker for a subordinate of True Monarch Yellow Mountain called Zhou Li, helping him marry a teacher from the White Cloud Academy, Ouyang Yuan."
A matchmaker? Immortal Master Copper Trigram immediately patted her chest and said, "Do you want me to act as a matchmaker in your stead? No problem. A fortune teller such as myself fits well in the matchmaking business. Leave everything to me. I'll make sure to beautifully matchmake them!"
"With you on it, I feel relieved." Venerable White silently nodded. "But allow me to explain the current relationship between Zhou Li and that teacher, Ouyang Yuan."
Immortal Master Copper Trigram immediately perked her ears up.
"Doudou's actions gave rise to a small misunderstanding between Zhou Li and Teacher Ouyang Yuan," Venerable White said. And just as he said these words, he shot a glance at Doudou and Guoguo's tent. Then, he continued to narrate what happened at the time and how Doudou tormented Zhou Li.
In the tent, Doudou and the small monk immediately shrank with fear.
Doudou had still some fear lingering since that time—after Zhou Li went crazy, he unexpectedly wanted to keep having lovey-dovey conversations with him.
"Little friend Zhou Li is a rather straightforward person when it comes to love… and after Doudou fooled him, he really thought that Teacher Ouyang Yuan was Doudou's second account. Later, he told her everything that had happened," Venerable White continued. "After hearing the explanation, Teacher Ouyang Yuan became sulky. You should also know the disposition of the people of the White Cloud Academy or other scholarly sects. They strongly believe in love and unconditionally trust their loved ones. After hearing this story, Teacher Ouyang Yuan probably felt that Zhou Li didn't trust her enough. Or perhaps little friend Zhou Li said something wrong when narrating the story? Anyway, Teacher Ouyang Yuan got angry and had been ignoring fellow daoist Zhou Li since then."
After saying this much, Venerable White took out his phone and showed Immortal Master Copper Trigram a picture that True Monarch Yellow Mountain sent him—in the picture, a smoking Zhou Li had locked himself up in a room. His whole face was covered in smoke; he seemed very sad.
As for why True Monarch Yellow Mountain could take a photo of him although he had locked himself in a room… it was all thanks to the wonders of magical techniques.
"..." Immortal Master Copper Trigram.
Copper Trigram also knew Zhou Li. He was a junior that was very skilled at handling matters as well as capable of adapting to all situations. But she hadn't expected that his emotional quotient was on the low side.
"There is one more thing. It's about the female monster hunter that was trying to catch Doudou." Venerable White unlocked his phone and showed the picture of the cute monster hunter to Copper Trigram. As before, it was True Monarch Yellow Mountain who sent this picture.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram asked, "What about the female monster hunter?"
"It seemed she sympathized with Zhou Li quite a bit… therefore, she said that if Teacher Ouyang Yuan were to leave him, they could catch monsters together and have fun. Unfortunately, Zhou Li just happened to be on the phone with Teacher Ouyang Yuan at the time… this probably gave rise to another misunderstanding between the two," Venerable White replied.
It was True Monarch Yellow Mountain who had told Venerable White all this.
In short, Zhou Li's emotional quotient was on the low side; Teacher Ouyang Yuan was angry; the kindness of the female monster hunter came at the wrong time and made Teacher Ouyang Yuan even angrier.
Venerable White put his phone away and asked, "This is how things are. Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram, do you think you can help little friend Zhou Li solve this matter?"
Immortal Master Copper Trigram patted her chest and said, "Absolutely, leave it to me! It's only a small misunderstanding. I'll clear it up in no time! Moreover, as long as they love each other, it won't be difficult to solve this problem."
What Copper Trigram said was true… solving this matter wasn't difficult. After all, Zhou Li and Ouyang Yuan loved each other and only needed someone to act as a middleman to bring them together.
Senior White had given Copper Trigram an easy task and was basically giving her the tail for free.
Venerable White smiled and nodded, saying, "This matter concerns the life-long happiness of two fellow daoists, mistakes are not allowed. Anyway, time is running out. Fellow Daoist Copper Trigram, you should make haste and go to see fellow daoist Zhou Li immediately."
Immortal Master Copper Trigram cupped her fists and said, "I will immediately rush toward True Monarch Yellow Mountain's immortal cave!"
After saying this much, she got a hold of her handcart and prepared to soar into the sky by relying on her flying sword.
"It's better if I send you off personally," Venerable White said with a radiant smile.
Immortal Master Copper Trigram waved her hand. "Senior White, there is no need. I can go on my own."
"I'll have to insist on sending you off." Venerable White stretched his hand and took out a long wooden sword from his sleeve. It seemed he had prepared it beforehand.
"This is my newly developed disposable flying sword 005 edition. Compared to the 004 edition, it has a 'zigzagged flight pattern' feature, as well as a 'parachute style landing' feature. When descending, it will let one have a stimulating and beautiful bungee jumping-like experience. Of course, for safety reasons, the disposable flying sword 005 edition will automatically protect the rider when the height from the ground reaches 0.1 meters, allowing the rider to feel free from worries," Venerable White explained excitedly.
Venerable White had finally drawn the dagger!
Immortal Master Copper Trigram quickly swallowed a mouthful of saliva. All these features seemed very high-end, and not something that a person like her could enjoy.
Therefore, she quickly tried to refuse. "Senior, there is really no need. I can use the flying technique and rush over there in no time! You don't have to worry about me being slow!"
"Enough chit-chat~ let's go!" Venerable White suddenly activated the sword art. The disposable flying sword 005 edition picked up Copper Trigram and the handcart, making them soar into the sky.
After it reached a certain altitude, the flying sword dashed forward while maintaining an S-shaped trajectory. It was swaying from side to side like a snake, but its speed was still extremely fast. In the blink of an eye, Immortal Master Copper Trigram was nowhere to be seen...
In the sky, intermittent yells echoed; it was the only proof that Copper Trigram was once there.
When he saw Senior White 'sending off' Senior Copper Trigram, the corner of Song Shuhang's mouth twitched... It seems that the seniors in the Nine Provinces Number One Group really can't understand the principle: If you don't seek-death, you won't die!
"Hmm… not bad, not bad. Perhaps I can further improve the trajectory of the flight, narrowing it down. I might even develop a new series of flying swords from this edition and use it for interplanetary flights," Venerable White muttered.
Finally, he added another sentence. "I didn't think that I would get to try it out on Copper Trigram first. I need to find the time and manufacture other disposable flying swords 005 edition."
Song Shuhang, who was standing on a side and taking in delight in others' misfortune, immediately stiffened.
He didn't think that he would get to try it out on Immortal Master Copper Trigram...? Then, on whom did he want to test it? Except for Immortal Master Copper Trigram, the other people on the island were precisely Doudou, the small monk, and the little fellow daoist surnamed Song!
