Chapter 113: Temporary Sword Controlling Technique
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Just when Song Shuhang came back from Luo Xin street area after separating with Tubo, he came to Medicine Master’s place to train to take advantage of his free time.
Afterwards, he received Sima Jiang’s phone call.
“What? Where was it stolen?” Song Shuhang subconsciously asked.
“Not long after receiving your parcel, while leaving towards Fengshou Express Delivery South General Headquarters, I was forced to get off the car and was knocked unconscious by someone. And your parcel… was snatched away by that robber.” Sima Jiang said while pausing in between his words.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Shuhang was really stumped on how to comfort this pitiful Little Jiang.
Just then, Sima Jiang changed the topic and said. “Rest assured, Student Shuhang. We have just captured the thief earlier on and he’s currently being transported to where I am. I will definitely retrieve your parcel! If you are still willing to trust us, I will absolutely deliver this parcel!”
The thief was caught?
Although he already knew Little Jiang wasn’t an ordinary delivery man, he didn’t expect him to have such capabilities.
“Alright, it’s been hard on you, Little Jiang.” Song Shuhang replied.
Sima Jiang temporary released a sigh in relief. “I shall contact you once I retrieve the parcel back.”
“Sure, no problem.” Song Shuhang smiled.
After hanging up the call, Song Shuhang grasped his phone and pondered. I should send a message to Senior Medicine Master to report the course of events. It’s not that I don’t trust Sima Jiang, but because this flying sword was ‘borrowed’ by Senior Medicine Master from Great Master Profound Principle. Such matters shouldn’t be concealed from the person involved.
Furthermore, after he had listened to Senior Medicine Master explanation previously, he knew there was an insurance left on the flying sword by Great Master Profound Principle. So, even if it got lost during delivery, it could still be located through the brand Great Master Profound Principle had on the flying sword.
In passing, he could roast the rotten idea Senior Medicine Master had of mailing the flying sword back!
Very long time after Song Shuhang’s message was sent, he received the tedious reply by Medicine Master. “Little Friend Shuhang, I’ve been mailing this flying sword for dozens of time without any incidents happening… Your luck’s really bad!”
Senior Medicine Master, you can actually use a voice message to reply. Imagining the scene of you typing, even I feel exhausted.
‘But then again, speaking of luck, I’m indeed quite unlucky today.’ Song Shuhang smiled bitterly as he recalled the ‘Uncle vs Young Man’ topic that went viral in his circle of friends… Let’s not talk about this anymore!
My liver hurts.
Yet another long time later, Medicine Master’s reply arrived slowly. “I called Great Master Profound Principle and talked to him about this matter. That monk’s currently in silent mediation and when there’s no reply every time I called, I thought that I was talking to air.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Actually, Shuhang felt that there was not much of a difference between Senior Medicine Master and Great Master Profound Principle as both of their communication methods within the group required the majority of them to guess.
The strangest thing was, Senior Medicine Master and Great Master Profound Principle could use a single word or emoticon to chat, whereas the surrounding people completely didn’t understand what they were talking about.
Perhaps this was because their wavelengths were on a frequency normal people couldn’t understand?
“Shuhang, someone from Great Master Profound Principle’s side will be contacting you in a while.” Another long time later, Senior Medicine Master sent a message.
However, when this message was just sent over, someone with an ID called ‘Young Monk Three Realms’ added Song Shuhang as a friend.
This had completely explained Medicine Master’s pathetic typing speed.
Song Shuhang then accepted the friend request.
“Is this Fellow Daoist Stressed by a Mountain of Books? Your dao name’s pretty weird.” Young Monk Three Realms messaged him.
“That’s only a nickname of mine… it’s fine if you call me Shuhang!” Song Shuhang felt that he should hurry and think of a dao name. If he did that long after everyone was already convinced that ‘Stressed by a Mountain of Books’ was his dao name, it’d be too late.
“I heard that you’re still a student? Then I shall be more easygoing and call you Junior Brother Shuhang. I am Great Master Profound Principle’s sixth disciple… However, I’ve returned to my original home. Master had said my fate with my normal life has come to an end and had even shaved my head, but afterwards allowed me to return to my normal life. You too also know that my Master’s a taciturn person and who knows how many years it has been since he spoke. Therefore, he usually leaves us matters that require communicating with other people,” Young Monk Three Realms smilingly replied. “Oh right, I’ve sent you a file, you can use the chatting software to accept it.”
“What’s the file for?” Shuhang puzzledly asked.
“It’s a technique to sense my master’s flying sword through the brand; it requires mental energy to use it. With your current mental energy, you should be able to sense the brand within a dozen or more meter radius. Accept it and find some time to learn it. Perhaps it would come in handy later on.” Young Monk Three Realms explained.
“If that Express Delivery Company is slow in retrieving that flying sword, perhaps this technique will come in handy. Yep, if you still cannot find this flying sword within a month, Junior Brother, you can contact me then. I’ll find some time to make a trip to look for it. Anyways, it’s only a flying sword used to transfer books, master would at most feel heartache even if it’s lost. You don’t have to worry about it.” While saying so, Young Monk Three Realms sent a compressed file to Shuhang.
Shuhang clicked ‘Accept.’
Some insignificant techniques of cultivators they need not be worried of leaking were all documents directly sent via the web. Meanwhile, only those important martial techniques were kept confidential by using methods like documents-delivering flying sword.
The compressed document wasn’t huge and could be directly accepted using his phone; not even ten seconds passed before it was transferred.
After decompressing, three documents appeared in Song Shuhang’s phone.
“Spirit Branding Technique”
“Brand Induction Technique”
“Temporary Sword Controlling Technique”
‘Why are there so many documents?’ Song Shuhang was somewhat confused, but he still replied to Young Monk Three Realms. “Received it.”
“Can you confirm if it’s Brand Induction Technique that got sent? I have too many compressed documents in my computer.” Young Monks Three Realms asked.
“Yep, there’s the Brand Induction Technique.” Song Shuhang confirmed and typed something else. “But there’s also Spirit Branding Technique and…”
Before he finished typing, Young Monks Three Realms had already rapidly replied. “Alright, then there’s no problem. Practice it when you have time; you can’t say for sure, perhaps it’ll come in handy. Contact me if you have news on the flying sword. I usually come online at a few days’ intervals.”
After finishing, Young Monk Three Realm rapidly went offline.
“…and Temporary Sword Controlling Technique.” When Song Shuhang had just finished typing, Young Monk Three Realms had already gone offline, while he could only smile bitterly. Why was this Senior Brother Three Realms so energetic?
He could only send this last sentence to Young Monk Three Realms who went offline.
Afterwards, he opened these three documents and took a look.
Spirit Branding Technique… According to the description in the document, it was invented by a senior with goldfish memory.
The attribute of having bad memory was common amongst mortals, but it was an absolutely rare case amongst cultivators. That was because cultivator’s brain areas were all strengthened and basically everyone had superhuman memory capability.
Whereas whenever this senior threw something casually, he would frequently be unable to remember where was it thrown to and seeking it would require long periods of time.
After getting angry, he had invented this Spirit Branding Technique and branded this technique on all his important items. Brand Induction Technique was a matching technique with it.
Thus, regardless of where he threw his things, he could find them back as long as he tried sensing it. It was really convenient!
Afterwards, this Spirit Branding Technique was provided by this senior free of charge to the cultivation world’s comrades to carry forward. Gradually, it formed the current era’s ‘Spirit Branding Technique’ series.
It was just like Great Master Profound Principle’s flying sword was matched with a unique sensing magical treasure, and regardless of where this sword was hidden in the world, one would easily find it.
These two mental energy techniques were a set, so he could still understand if Senior Brother Three Realms had sent it together. But, what was up with the ‘Temporary Sword Controlling Technique’?
He was aware of Sword Controlling Techniques as it should be a technique similar to documents-delivering flying sword and riding or controlling a flying sword.
However, his question was, could it be that Sword Controlling Techniques were divided into permanent and temporary ones?
With an inquisitive mood, Song Shuhang opened this document.
Even if it was temporary, it was still a Sword Controlling Technique.
