Chapter 736: Mountain of Myriad Books: “Uncle will now show you how you stand upside down.”
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
“…” Venerable White.
“…” The various fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group were likewise speechless.
The Mountain of Myriad Books was unexpectedly a living creature?
How were they supposed to reply to the opposite party at this moment?
Just as everyone was in deep thoughts, the western monk waved his hand and shouted, “Hello! Mister Mountain, how are you doing?”
“…” Song Shuhang.
“Ahaha! Monk, you can just call me ‘Uncle Mountain of Books’. Right, why did I suddenly wake up?” the Mountain of Myriad Books muttered to itself as it stretched out its two thin arms.
It had legs, and it had arms too. Now, it only needed a face to be complete.
Song Shuhang felt that the corner of his eye was twitching continuously. “Is… is that a mountain that turned into a monster?”
Su Clan’s Sixteen stopped meditating, and said, “It doesn’t look like a mountain that has transformed into a monster. It’s more likely that it’s a puppet… or perhaps a magical treasure?”
Still, a magical treasure that was as big as a mountain?
Su Clan’s Sixteen was also unsure. After all, the volume of this ‘magical treasure’ was a little too big. If that thing couldn’t reduce his size, only a colossal giant could make use of it.
The fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group silently gazed at this Mountain of Myriad Books that had suddenly come to life. What the hell was happening? They just wanted to shoot a few scenes here, why had the entire mountain casually got up?!
The Mountain of Myriad Books laughed, and said, “Ah! It seems everyone is very surprised to see Uncle, huh?”
“…” The fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group continued to remain silent.
The Mountain of Myriad Books said promptly, “C’mon, someone says something. If no one says something, the atmosphere will get awkward, and I’ll get embarrassed. Such being the case, should father show you how to stand upside down? Perhaps it will make things more lively?”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Don’t tell me that the sentence, ‘Overturn the Mountain of Myriad Books’, was referring to Uncle Mountain of Myriad Books showing everyone that it could stand upside down…?
Just as Song Shuhang was in deep thoughts, the Mountain of Myriad Books placed its two thin arms to the ground. Afterward, it put all its strength into its two huge legs.
It was really planning to stand upside down!
…Did it never bother taking a look at the structure of its body?
“Run! Everyone, get away from here, the further, the better!” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator shouted.
Fairy Lychee added, “Take all these ordinary people along with you, and don’t forget the equipment. Right, remember to switch the cameras off too!”
The seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group quickly used their flying techniques and carried away the ordinary folks and the equipment, fleeing from the Mountain of Myriad Books.
Song Shuhang and Sixteen likewise carried Tubo and Yangde on their shoulders and quickly ran away.
At this time, the far-off Mountain of Myriad Books had firmly placed its two thin arms on the ground while its thick legs were slowly but steadily raising upward.
This big fellow was really determined to show everyone that it could stand upside down!
Song Shuhang felt a dull pain transmitting from his liver. Although the two legs of the Mountain of Myriad Books were very thick and strong-looking, its two arms were pitifully thin and looked very weak.
Could those thin arms really support the weight of its huge body? He felt as though those thin arms could break at any moment.
Luckily, this ‘mountain’ lived in the territory of cultivators.
Otherwise, had there been a village next to the mountain top… Had this guy suddenly decided to stand upside down to show off in front of others, the people there would have experienced a natural disaster, with the mountain collapsing and the earth splitting.
Wait a moment, if the reason for a natural disaster where mountains were collapsing and the earth splitting consisted in a huge mountain suddenly standing upside down and tripping, what’s the true reason behind volcanic eruptions?
Pfff~ what the hell am I even thinking at this time? Song Shuhang quickly shook his head.
After he had run far enough while carrying Tubo on his shoulders, Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen both turned their heads around, looking behind them.
At this time, the thin arms of the Mountain of Myriad Books were really supporting the weight of its huge body.
The huge Mountain of Myriad Books slowly started to bend down. The mountain top headed in the direction of the ground while the mountain bottom headed upward.
Soon after, its thick leg slowly left the ground.
This scene was truly frightening!
Not even the scariest horror movie in the world was as scary as the scene currently unfolding before their eyes.
Practicing bungee jumping to seek the thrill was something that only weaklings would do. Real men were those who would stand beneath the shadow of the Mountain of Myriad Books and not run away while it was trying to stand upside down!
“Ddi you see? Although Uncle’s body is rather big, it’s still quite flexible! Back in the days, I could stand upside down on just one arm. Unfortunately, I got fat, and the level skills declined with time. When you get older and stay in the same place all year long, it’s pretty easy to get fat,” the Mountain of Myriad Books said smugly.
Just as it was speaking, a cracking sound suddenly echoed.
The cultivators of the Nine Provinces Number One Group immediately looked at the arms of the Mountain of Myriad Books. As expected, its two thin and weak arms couldn’t bear it anymore, and started to crack in many places.
“In my opinion… you should stop as soon as possible. Your arms are about to break!” Fairy Lychee said.
“Little beauty, you don’t need to worry. My arms have been repeatedly tempered, and won’t break so easily! In addition, how can I back off in front of so many beautiful women? Therefore, look at Uncle as he stands upside down!” The huge mountain roared with laughter, looking very smug.
Even if it didn’t have a ‘face’, everybody could feel from its tone that it felt pretty smug at this moment.
Then, around two or three seconds later…
“Snap~ crack, crack, crack…”
As expected, the two thin arms of the Mountain of Myriad Books were unable to shoulder all that weight and finally broke.
The previously smug Mountain of Myriad Books fell toward the ground.
“Aaaaah~ Dammit, I’m falling~ I’m falling down!” the Mountain of Myriad Books called out in alarm.
At the end of the day, the Mountain of Myriad Books was still a mountain with a height of 600-700 meters, and human beings were nothing but little ants compared to its size. If it were to fall to the ground, the shock wave generated from the collision between its huge body and the ground would create a terrifying earthquake that would destroy everything.
“Damn! The White Cloud Academy is rather close to this place. If that thing falls, even the academy will be affected, right?” Song Shuhang said.
Could the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group really stop the Mountain of Myriad Books before it fell to the ground?
Right at this time, Venerable White stepped in the air and teleported away, directly appearing beneath the Mountain of Myriad Books.
In the next moment, Senior White stretched out his palm and aimed at the Mountain of Myriad Books. Was Senior White planning to stop the falling Mountain of Myriad Books with his bare hands?
It was true that he was a Seventh Stage Venerable, but could he really achieve something of the sort?
Song Shuhang opened his eyes wide.
The nearby Su Clan’s Sixteen didn’t waste time and took out her mobile phone, starting to record the scene.
At this time, the falling Mountain of Myriad Books also ‘saw’ that Venerable White had appeared beneath its body. Therefore, it called out in alarm,” Big beauty, quickly dodge to one side! Uncle is falling, and no one can stop him at this time! If you get pressed beneath my body, you’ll die~ quickly get away from there! I don’t have the heart to destroy a beautiful flower like you!”
The far-off Song Shuhang was speechless.
Was the Mountain of Myriad Books actually Senior Thrice Reckless in disguise? Or perhaps it was Senior Copper Trigram that had used his disguising technique to transform into the mountain?
“…” Venerable White.
In the next moment, Venerable White changed his mind. At first, he had stretched out his palm toward the Mountain of Myriad Books, preparing to gently catch it as it was falling.
But now, the palm of his hand had changed into a fist!
“Ah!” Venerable White shouted, and his right fist exploded toward the Mountain of Myriad Books!
An ear-splitting explosion reverberated in the surrounding area. It was several times louder than a thunderclap.
After the explosive punch hit the falling Mountain of Myriad Books, debris continuously fell off its body.
At the same time, the Mountain of Myriad Books stopped midair for a very short amount of time as it was falling downward.
Song Shuhang got a scare. The level of Venerable White’s fighting capacity had broken through another record in his eyes. Now, it could no longer be described as being only off the charts!
In the air, since the Mountain of Myriad Books had stopped for an instant, Venerable White took a deep breath.
Then… “Ora ora ora ora ora ora ora!”
Senior White’s fists exploded one after another, and Song Shuhang couldn’t even see how many times Venerable White had punched with the current strength of his eyesight. He only saw that the entire sky was filled with the afterimages of those explosive fists that were battering the body of the Mountain of Myriad Books.
The sound of the explosions echoed without stopping.
The Mountain of Myriad Books felt like a pitiful sandbag at this time. Pieces of debris were continuously dropping off it, and its huge body had stopped falling, and was now ‘hovering’ midair.
The current scene was similar to that of a fat man carelessly tripping and falling to the ground. Then, a small ant suddenly rushed over and punched him to prevent him from falling to the ground.
Afterward, the small ant punched him again and again… until it made the falling fatso ‘hover’ midair!
Indeed, the Mountain of Myriad Books had now stopped falling downward, and was actually hovering midair!
Right at this time, Fairy Lychee, True Monarch Tyrant Flood Dragon, Northern River’s Loose Cultivator, True Monarch Ancient Lake Temple, and the other seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group stretched out their hands and used their respective techniques.
The huge projection of a flood dragon, a magical treasure that could cover heaven and earth, and so on suddenly appeared, aiming at the Mountain of Myriad Books. The seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group weren’t really planning to battle against the Mountain of Myriad Books. They wanted to stabilize its body now that it was hovering midair, allowing it to land properly so that it wouldn’t fall to the ground and creating a terrifying earthquake.
At last, the Mountain of Myriad Books managed to smoothly land to the ground thanks to the joint efforts of the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
However, the previously lively Mountain of Myriad Books seemed now a salted fish on the verge of death, continuously shivering.
Who knew, perhaps this experience had left a trauma deep inside its heart?
“Scary.” Song Shuhang gazed at the distant Venerable White, who had just shown his incredible strength. Were Seventh Stage Venerables all this powerful?
He hadn’t used magical techniques or magical treasures… he needed but his fists to make the incredibly huge Mountain of Myriad Books ‘hover’ midair by punching again and again.
Senior White’s fists alone had the strength to move the mountains and the seas!
This was the strength of those who had reached the Venerable Realm…
Would Shuhang also reach this level someday in the future?
Venerable White hovered in front of the Mountain of Myriad Books and took out his mobile phone, giving a call to True Monarch Eternal Fire.
The phone on the other side was quickly picked up.
Venerable White had yet to say anything when True Monarch Eternal Fire’s anxious voice echoed from the other end. “Fellow Daoist White, I sensed a huge fluctuation of spiritual energy coming from that place where you are shooting the movie, as well as an ear-splitting explosion. Did the army of demons of the Netherworld Realm attack?”
“No, the demons of the Netherworld haven’t appeared yet,” Venerable White said in a soft voice. “Just now, your ‘Mountain of Myriad Books’ suddenly woke up.”
“Ah?” True Monarch Eternal Fire was dumbfounded.
“The Mountain of Myriad Books is that same mountain where we were shooting the movie. However, it suddenly grew out legs and arms and tried to stand upside down. Now, its arms broke… and its body is badly injured.”
After gaping for a long time, True Monarch Eternal Fire replied, “The Mountain of Myriad Books grew out legs and arms?”
The Mountain of Myriad Books… was actually a living creature?
