Chapter 1140: The full moon is like a painting, and the night sky like a poem

This feeling of being ‘a fish on a chopping block’ made the stone giant desperate. Its body was being burned by the heavenly fire, and if Song Shuhang did really use a Ninth Stage ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯, it was truly done for.
Song Shuhang asked again, “How long would it take before we can use the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯ again?”
If it was going to take too long, he could only choose to escape.
Because if the stone giant recovered from Skylark’s imprisonment technique, it would definitely go on a rampage.
Time was currently of the essence.
Scarlet Heaven Sword replied, “Longer than you think.”
The eyes of the stone giant, who was currently tied up like an ordinary mortal, suddenly lit up. Then, it tried to desperately break the seal in its body.
Song Shuhang: “…”
Should I run?
However, running away was among the last of his strategies. The other party was had power at the Immortal-level, and they would be able to cross through space and appear right beside him with a single thought.
The exception being if he were to hide in the Inner World or a similar secret realm. Otherwise, no matter how far he ran, it wouldn’t matter at all.
Song Shuhang asked, “By the way, Fellow Daoist Scarlet Heaven Sword, can you contact Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven?”
To be honest… Song Shuhang had never really provoked this stone giant. However, just because he happened to know the ❮Flaming Saber Technique❯, the stone giant had decided to take out its anger on him. As such, this entire matter was pretty much Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s fault.
It was Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven that had cut the stone giant and caused it to suffer from the heavenly fire, resulting him becoming the number one enemy of the the stone giant.
Song Shuhang was merely an innocent passerby.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, “I’ll give it a try, but it isn’t certain that I will be able to contact Scarlet Heaven. Only the heavens know what he’s been up to recently. When I try to contact him, nine times out of ten, I wouldn’t even be able to get through.”
Then, it turned to the virtuous lamia and said, “Well, can you let me out first? If I’m outside, the signal would be better.”
The virtuous lamia tilted her head and remained motionless.
Scarlet Heaven Sword: “…”
Such being the case, it could only silently try to contact Scarlet Heaven.
After about three breaths, it was able to successfully get through to Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven.
Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven asked, [Is something up?]
Scarlet Heaven Sword replied, [Come and pack up an old opponent of yours.]
Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven said, [I’m busy]
Scarlet Heaven Sword then said, [If you don’t come, you’ll end up collecting my dead body.]
Scarlet Heaven said, [It’s alright, as long as your body is still there, I can forge you anew.]
Scarlet Heaven Sword: […]
While they were talking, Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven began to lock on to the coordinates of ‘Scarlet Heaven Sword’, getting ready to open a spatial gate beside it. [What happened specifically? Summarize it for me.]
Scarlet Heaven Sword then recounted what happened just now to Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven at the fastest speed it could.
[So that’s the case…] Scarlet Heaven nodded. [I’ll be right there.]
After about two breaths, a spatial gate opened up in the air.
The stone giant’s pupils shrank, that old bastard, Scarlet Heaven, had come!
After the spatial gate opened, a right hand came out, clenched into a fist.
Only his right hand appeared… Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s real body didn’t come out.
After this right hand appeared, it directly punched at the stone giant.
“Old Bastard Scarlet Heaven!” roared the stone giant. At this moment, it had finally managed to break part of the seal.
At the same time, Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s right fist opened, revealing a rune in his palm.
The rune affixed itself onto the stone giant’s body and turned into a large net. It was another imprisonment technique, one that directly wrapped around the stone giant.
Then, the right hand picked up the net, lifted it up slightly—lifting the stone giant as well—and moved back into the spatial gate.
“Let me go! Let me recover, and I’ll fight you once again!” The stone giant roared repeatedly.
However, Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven paid him no attention and dragged the stone giant into the spatial gate with a strong pull of his right hand.
After dealing with the stone giant, the right hand turned to Song Shuhang and the others, raised two of its fingers, and made a ‘V’ gesture.
Afterward, the right hand also returned to the other side of the spatial gate.
“Hey, wait! Take me back with you!” Scarlet Heaven Sword yelled while still in the belly of the virtuous lamia.
In the air, the right hand pointed at Scarlet Heaven Sword, and made an ‘OK’ gesture.
Scarlet Heaven Sword called out, “What do you mean with that?”
The fingers of Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven’s right hand moved again, and he gave a ‘Thumbs Up’ to Scarlet Heaven Sword, as if to say ‘Good Luck’.
Then, the right hand retracted into the spatial gate.
Scarlet Heaven Sword: “…”
Song Shuhang felt relieved in his heart. The stone giant had been taken away by Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven, which was a great ending for him.
The stone giant had the strength of an ‘Immortal’, and Song Shuhang wouldn’t be able to keep it in the Inner World like he did with that Seventh Stage Venerable. Sending the stone giant into the Inner World was tantamount to letting a wolf into one’s house.
Once the stone giant managed to break the seal, Song Shuhang would have had to face someone at the Immortal Realm all the time, someone who could instantly pass through space and appear behind him, giving him a fatal blow.
Scarlet Heaven Sword quickly contacted Scarlet Heaven again: [Hey, what did you mean with those gestures? Quickly take me back with you!] It didn’t want to be the prop used by the virtuous lamia to perform sword swallowing.
Scarlet Heaven replied, [I’m busy.]
Scarlet Heaven Sword said in anger, [No matter how busy you are, I will never talk to you again if you don’t explain! Do you think I won’t dare to blow myself up?!]
Scarlet Heaven replied, [Go ahead.]
Scarlet Heaven Sword: […]
After a short while, Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven replied, [I’m too busy for the time being, you should stay with little friend Song for now and protect him. You can consider it as the reward for taking away little friend Song’s ‘prey’.]
‘Prey’ referred to the sealed stone giant. Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven had just picked it up and went home, so it made sense that Song Shuhang would be rewarded a little for his contribution.
Scarlet Heaven Sword said, [That’s the reason?]
Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven replied, [This is a part of the reason. In addition, a senior came to me a few days ago, and we talked for some time. At that time, they mentioned this ‘little friend Song’ as well as other things as we discussed. Anyway, you stay with little friend Song for now and protect him. If you have the chance, give him some pointers on the ❮Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique❯. Of course, there’s no need to force it, just let things take their natural course. After some time, I will come to pick you up.]
Scarlet Heaven Sword: “…”
Wasn’t he being too casual about this?
Song Shuhang, Su Clan’s Sixteen, Shi, and Little Cai went down the mountain by following the road.
The virtuous lamia floated behind Song Shuhang, Scarlet Heaven Sword in her body.
When they were walking down the mountain and passed where the ‘barrier gate’ had been, Song Shuhang and the others felt everything before their eyes become dark.
“Is it evening already?” Song Shuhang looked up at the sky.
At this moment, night had already descended in the outside world.
The color of the sky was beautiful tonight.
There were countless stars in the sky that gave one a poetic feeling.
Among the stars, a full moon hung high, exuding gentle light; it was simply picturesque.
The full moon was like a painting, and the night sky like a poem.
