The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 1
Chapter 1: The Sealed Coffin
Mystical Forest, Forsaken Continent, Fifth Stage Planet Thrae.
As the sun ascended beneath the mountains and shone upon his hut, young Fang Lin immediately opened his eyes.
Upon waking up, he fixed his straw bed and lit the incense on the altar at the center of his room. The altar was a simple one, consisting of a stand and a coffin on top of it. Fang Lin always lit the incense in front of this coffin as a sign of respect and a way to thank it.
The Mystical Forest consists of mainly 2nd to 3rd Stage Beasts practicing Godly Ascension. These beasts are usually hostile to non-beasts, especially those who practice Immortal Cultivation. Because of this, the Mystical Forest has been mostly devoid of of other creatures, except for the 16-year old Fang Lin.
After being abandoned by his family when he was 10, left with only a day’s worth of protective talismans, Fang Lin should have been killed in the forest already. But as he was being chased by the beasts, he happened to pass by the altar with the sealed coffin. Upon reaching the altar, all the other beasts began to howl and they scampered away. Fang Lin immediately realized that this coffin is his chance for survival.
The coffin seem to let out an aura that scared any kinds of beast that approach it. Fang Lin could clearly see that the area around the coffin was devoid of any beings. Fang Lin then decided to make this area his dwelling place from now on.
The harrowing experiences in the mystical forest forced Fang Lin to mature faster. At first, he survived on eating the plants around the area which seemed edible as long as they are near the altar. He also craved meat, but with the strength of those beasts, how can he kill one? He tried to cultivate, but to his dismay he could not sense the mortal qi that he needed to absorb to refine his body. This is the so called Body Refinement Stage that is the preliminary stage before the First Stage.
The body refinement stage consists of refining the bones, then muscles, and finally internal organs.
Upon refining the body the practitioner could either choose to condense the qi into his dantian, the so-called Qi condenstation stage for the immortal cultivators. Or he could try to sense his elemental affinity and convert his qi into elemental mana and circulate it on his body, the Mana circulation stage for Godly ascenders.
Without a way to refine his body, how could Fang Lin fight off these beasts? So he just scavenged leftovers of recently killed beasts near the altar. He got his water and hygiene on a nearby stream.
This routine continued for six years until one day, he accidentally cut his hand while cutting his food and while he flung his hands on surprise, a drop of blood landed on the sealed coffin.
The coffin immediately lit up, scaring Fang Lin immediately. Some minutes passed, and the light disappeared. Fang Lin timidly looked at the coffin which was surprisingly not sealed anymore. Suddenly, the coffin’s cover began to open.
“Oh no, I wish what inside that coffin is kind enough to spare me, seeing that I respect it everyday. Hmph, it must be grateful!” Pumping his chest out, Fang Lin proudly marched toward the coffin. Even if he was scared he has no choice but to appear brave. This is the rule of the jungle. Even if he wanted to escape, Fang Lin thinks there is no way he can do it with the ferocious beasts outside.
And with the the way the beasts were scared at the altar, doesn’t that mean that whatever was inside the coffin was powerful too? Fang Lin knew that running away cannot help him now.
Upon reaching the altar, Fang Lin could not help but curse on what he saw. “What the hell, this person looks weak!” The person inside the coffin looked like a 20-year old man. He had this apathetic look on his face as if he did not care about anything. He had a lanky body, but it didn’t pair well with his demeanor. If there is anything remarkable about this guy, it was the symbol on his forehead which looked like a ten-petaled flower.
The coffin person swiveled his head to look at Fang Lin as he sneered. “You have been cowering near my prison for six years yet you could not even raise your strength. How pathetic!” Fang Lin replied with an affronted expression. ” Look who’s talking, from what I see right now, I can easily beat you up!”
“I am the number one space-time magician and all kinds of energy are under my control! I am unparalleled under the Tenth Stage! If not for this goddamned ‘Ten Stage Flower Seal’ I could have been more powerful already!” the coffin person lamented.
Fang Lin stilled, not really believing what this person has said. He began to think. He just helped this man escape his prison. If what he said about being strong is really true, then he can ask for his guidance. Maybe he can even help Fang Lin escape the Mystical Forest. So he then asked the man.
“If you are really that powerful, can you find a way to help me get stronger?”
“Heh, even if you did not ask me, I will still help you to cultivate because I had to.” The coffin person stared at Fang Lin’s eyes and declared “This Ten Stage Flower Seal regressed my strength to that of a normal person.” His face scrunched up after saying that. He was clearly pissed with what happened to him. Even Fang Lin could feel the anger emanating from the man right now.
The man calmed down as he looked back at the coffin he was in. He caressed it as he muttered “The only way to unlock the seal was to stain this Divine Turtle Coffin with a Divine Beast bloodline with no cultivation.”
The man then let out an annoying smirk.
“For every stage that person achieves, a petal of my seal will disappear, slowly restoring my strength. From what I see, you have a Divine Beast bloodline so I have no choice but to make you reach the peak to remove this seal!”
