The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 122
Chapter 122: Chance!
“Ha? Are you sure that killing the dragon won’t close that portal?” Mimi was countenance changed when she heard Wang Hao preventing them from killing her.
“I knew it! You really have some bad motives for the Raiders! You must die!” She pointed her bow to Wang Hao as she drew her string. But to her dismay, nothing happened.
“S**t! I forgot I am in First Stage now!” Mimi then proceeded to whack Wang Hao with her bow. Wang Hao skillfully dodged all her blows while talking.
“I know you are all angry now, since you knew that the dragon’s body served as a portal for those creatures to come here. But have you ever thought that something was fishy on how those creatures appeared?”
“What do you mean?” It was Eleanor’s turn to be confused. “Don’t those creatures come in a weekly basis? What is fishy about that?”
“You should have all realized it by now. That dragon may have been a servant of the Underworld. There is a high possibility she came from one of the planets they managed to capture before.” Ling Tian said coolly.
“If she is an agent, why is she in agony just to let those creatures come in? I say, she must have been trying to stop the arrival of those creatures.” Wang Hao said as he ducked a head-swipe from Mimi.
“What? Why would she do that?” Tang Ya paused as she realized the real answer.
“It’s love isn’t it….”
“Yes, that’s the reason.” Wang Hao nodded sagely. He then spread his arms as his voice turned melodramatic.
“Imagine this: A woman with her planet captured by the Underworld had been hired by them to be their spy. ‘Just be open up a portal for us on the other worlds’ they said. The woman of course had no choice but to follow them.”
“Then she comes to Planet Thrae. Upon some investigating, she discovered the Solstice Kingdom. She determined that this place was the most suitable one for the Underworld Soldiers. With the portal scroll inside her, she went in the Kingdom to fulfill her plan. But then, she met the King.”
Wang Hao pretended to be joyous as he shouted,
“It was love at first sight! Such strong was their love that the woman chose to forsake her mission. They married happily as she tried to forget her past.”
“But the Underworld will never allow failure! As such, the portal that the woman was supposed to open appeared in her body! This was her punishment and a fail-safe plan to those who abandon their mission! Those creatures should have come in everyday but with her willpower, she managed to reduce it on a weekly basis!”
“Because she was in great pain, she had no way to explain to the King what really was happening. She could only plead for him to kill her. Too bad the King really loved her.”
“And now,” Wang Hao spun in the air, and he landed on his tiptoes. “Here we are.” He curtsied, signifying the end of his speech.
As for Mimi, she did not even manage to his Wang Hao even once.
“But you know that’s just a theory, right?” Ling Tian interjected. “How are you going to prove that you are right?”
“Well, you can see that even though the Underworld Army had already the cards laid on their advantage, they are still not attacking! That only means something was stopping them from fully entering as one big force. It is the dragon that was slowing them down.”
“But even with that, I am only 60% sure that the dragon is on our side.” Ling Tian narrowed his eyes as he asked Wang Hao,
“Anything else to add to make it 100%”
“None. That’s the best I can give right now.”
Tang Ya and Eleanor sighed as the general with them stared pointedly at Wang Hao.
“But 60% is a already a good risk for us.” Ling Tian said slowly.
“Wait, so we are going to believe what he said and try to save the dragon?” Mimi angrily replied. “We do not even know if we can get near her.
“We can get near her if we save Fang Yu first.” Wang Hao said resolutely. He stared at Ling Tian as he said,
“You already know the reason why, right?”
“Sigh.” Ling Tian smiled as he realized he was again defeated by Wang Hao in the battle for words. He sullenly said,
“In that case, let’s go retrieve Fang Yu first. As for the portal, we will deal with that after retrieving her.”
“F**k! I do not have a choice do I?” Mimi looked at Celestia and Sebastian. “What do you guys think? Should we join them or not?”
“Join.” Celestia curtly said.
“Little Mimi, of course we will join them.” Sebastian laughed as he ruffled Mimi’s head. Mimi slapped his hand away in annoyance.
“You know that Boss Nathalia will get angry at you if we follow Wang Hao’s whims now.”
“Heh, are you sure about that?” Sebastian cockily replied. “Wang Hao was assigned by our boss to be our temporary leader. That means we have to follow him. Disobeying him will surely make Boss Nathalia angry.”
“Che! Fine, I will join!” Mimi haughtily said.
“But it’s not like I want to save the dragon or anything!”
“Tsundere.” Ling Tian and Wang Hao muttered under their breaths.
“What did you say?”
Inside Fang Yu’s confinement house.
Fang Yu stared at her ‘grandmother’ with a complicated expression. Right now, she was struggling on whether she should tell the truth about her bloodline or not.
She knows that her grandmother just wanted the best for Fang Lin and that she had been only a victim of what happened in the past. Even now, Fang Yu still felt some slight guilt for what happened in the past.
But before tackling the issue of her bloodline, she had more important matter to discuss.
“What do you mean future granddaughter-in-law?” Fang Yu had to clarify what she meant by this. Does this mean that Fang Yu was being forced to marry into the Fang Clan? She grimaced as she realized that she would be certainly wed to Fang Xiushang.
She gritted her teeth, hoping to hear it’s all just a joke.
“Well, the clan have decided to wed you to their former successor, Fang Lin!” Fang Jia’s eyes glowed with fondness as she remembered her grandson. “Do not be shy, I heard you have been with him in the Mystical Forest right?”
“Waah…” Fang Yu was surprised upon hearing this from Fang Jia. She could not help but feel relieved and shocked at the same time.
She was relieved since the Fang Clan seems to have not yet discovered about her bloodline. She was shocked as she realized she was being forced to marry herself/himself!
“Well… we were good acquaintances in the Mystical Forest, but we were just friends really.” Fang Yu realized that she had to cut off any chance that she will NTR Xiao Ya with herself/himself!
“Huh? Are you saying my beloved grandson is not enough for you?” Murderous aura suddenly emanated from Fang Jia. She slowly approached Fang Yu with her whole body trembling. Fang Yu could only scoot backwards in fear.
“My cute grandson was of the direct descent! When he was born, our oracle had predicted that he will be the Fang Clan’s greatest talent! If not for that incident, he might have been the Clan Prince now. But with his win against Fang Xiushang, the clan was considering to let my grandson back.”
But before Fang Yu could cheer with this good news, Fang Jia grabbed her by her shoulders.
“And you, you shall be his bride, whether you like it or not! Such beauty and talent can only be enjoyed by my grandson! So you will stay here and wait for him!”
Fang Yu felt weird at that time. She was relieved that she will not be married to some sleazy guy. But how could she marry herself/himself?
It seems like the only way to resolve this was to tell her grandmother about her bloodline. She knew that Fang Jia loves her and that she will not tell others about her bloodline.
But before she could do so, she hesitated, remembering one of Wang Hao’s teachings.
“If you can be shameless, others can be shameless too. That is why you must always be wary of their schemes. You never know, your closest friend or relative might be scheming against you!”
Even though Fang Yu knew Fang Jia really loved Fang Lin, she decided to not talk about her bloodline. She never knew why, but right now she felt that there was something else aside from that marriage that she has to worry about.
But before she could say something, she felt the ‘Underworld Suppressing Formation’ enveloping the whole house!
She could hear shocked screams of the practitioners all around the house. To her surprise, she felt that Fang Jia now only had the power of the First Stage. She used her senses and she discovered that the guards outside all regressed at the First Stage too!
She never knew the reason why, but she realized this was her chance!
“I must escape now!”
