The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 129
Chapter 129: Oops
Wang Hao and Ling Tian could feel the sheer might and power that the 13th Battalion expressed as a whole. Their weapons, armors and steeds were all exquisitely made. Every movement they have shows that their cooperation and teamwork were of the highest level.
In front of them was a man riding an eight-legged horse. His mere presence was imposing, and he seemed to be the one in command of the battalion. A wizened old man was walking beside him. He held a staff on his hands covered with black runes.
Wang Hao was sure that the man in the horse was the leader of the army. As for the old man, he could be the classic grandpa mentor. Their posture and aura made it clear to Wang Hao that they were powerful entities in the Underworld Realm.
Wang Hao immediately realized that it will be only a matter of time before the invading army fully occupies the Solstice Kingdom.
By the time the reinforcements of the Immortal Continent arrive, the Solstice Kingdom would have been under the control already of the Underworld.
At that time, the Solstice Kingdom will be the Underworld’s first military complex. With its connection to the Underworld Realm itself, it will be difficult to recapture the Kingdom once it has been captured. What the Immortal Continent can only do was to send armies to stop the expansion of the Underworld on this planet.
This place will then be the place of more wars in the future that will decide the fate of the Planet Thrae. The last army standing wins.
That means that the fate of the whole world now lies on everyone inside the Solstice Kingdom. But with the sheer difference in power, that hope seems to be dashed already. They can only hope to slow the invaders down to allow the reinforcements to arrive.
But, Wang Hao, Ling Tian and Fang Yu will not allow that to happen of course. All of them already knew that force cannot help now.
100,000 fully armored First Stage Soldiers? Wang Hao can defeat them of course, but he cannot use his power because he had to protect his identity. As for Ling Tian, he may be powerful, but even he had to hide his whole power.
But even if he can use his whole power in the First Stage, his 100 swords will not be enough to protect him from the powerful attacks of the enemy. He may be able to persist for some time, but he will still be killed in the end.
Besides, he’s a reincarnator, and as much as possible, he does not want to get near any Underworld denizen. Even if he was confident he had hidden his aura well, some things out of his control might still happen. He was not that stupid to just depend on his luck to stay alive at dangerous situations like this.
As for Fang Yu, her potential was not that fully developed yet. Only once she had her power fully awakened that she can be the overpowered character that she aspires. Right now, she decided to use her brain to know any possible ways to alleviate their problems.
Suddenly, their eyes flashed as they realized the simple solution. They looked at each other’s eyes, confirming their suspicions.
Some moments passed, and Ling Tian hesitantly asked,
“So, who will be the bait?”
Wang Hao pompously replied,
“Well, you are the best fighter here, so it should be you.”
“Ha?” Ling Tian’s brows curled up as he looked down on Wang Hao. He pushed Wang Hao against the wall, reducing the distance on their bodies.
His face was close to Wang Hao as he slowly said,
“You have the best survival abilities among all of us here. Maybe you can stop being a coward and do something beneficial in the first place.”
“You are saying I am a coward?”
Their foreheads were practically touching as they aggressively cursed against each other.
Among the spectators, Celestia and Mimi were the ones that were not worried. They seemed to be even excited as they watched the conflict. Mimi was excited since she wanted these two guys to have an all-out, no-holds barred, bloody fight. Mimi was a naughty girl, and she had always wanted to see conflicts happening. A fistfight between Wang Hao and Ling Tian will surely be refreshing.
Celestia on the other hand, wanted the handsome Ling Tian to have a ‘fight’ with the plump Wang Hao. Celestia had to discreetly wipe her nose as she imagined Wang Hao squealing happily like a pig while Ling Tian wantonly ‘attacks’ Wang Hao.
Both Wang Hao and Ling Tian felt the scary look on Celestia’s face. They instinctively shivered in fear as they felt the not-so-innocent intentions on her eyes. Ling Tian stepped back, giving a berth between him and Wang Hao.
Mimi’s disappointed shout and Celestia’s quiet sigh could be heard after that.
“Oh no!” Fang Yu’s panicked and distressed shout echoed out as she ran around in circles. She continuously clutched the top of her head as she muttered,
“Why is she not here? She is an obedient girl and she won’t let go no matter what… Don’t tell me, it was when that No. 5 grabbed me?” She stopped pacing back and forth as she started trembling.
“S**t s**t s**t!” I need to find her now!”
Tang Ya and Wang Hao’s expression sank as they realized that Tang Li was missing! Such innocent baby will be in grave danger right now!
Upon seeing all this, Ling Tian could only ask confusedly,
“What is Fang Yu talking about?”
“None of your business!” Wang Hao snapped back. “This is a personal matter, and you do not need to concern yourself about it.”
“….” Ling Tian had not choice but to just sullenly stare at them.
“Wait.” Fang Yu started scrutinizing Wang Hao and co. She then noticed that someone who was supposed to be there seemed to be missing in action.
Wang Hao just shrugged his shoulders as he said,
“I dunno. After you were kidnapped, she just…. disappeared. I even thought that she might have rushed in to rescue you. But it seems like that it’s not the case. Are you sure that she was an actual servant of the Emperor? What if she was just a fake?”
“I am sure of that!” Fang Yu shouted indignantly. Empyrea was the Emperor, Fang Yu was sure of that. She cannot fake herself right? But what worries Fang Yu more is where the hell Empyrea could have gone.
“Hey! Quit worrying about personal stuff now! We had a Kingdom to save!” Ling Tian furiously reminded them.
Suddenly, Ling Tian paused as he gave Wang Hao an evil smile. Wang Hao gave his own evil smile back as the two of them stared at Fang Yu.
“Hey you guys, don’t tell me…..”
“What’s the matter Fang Yu?” Wang Hao slowly said. He seemed to be slightly pained as he approached Fang Yu. “You will not really do that, you just have to let his guard down.”
“That’s right.” Ling Tian sagely nodded. “As long as you manage to daze him, we two might have the chance to secure him. Once that happens, we can use him for ransom demands.”
“You just have to use your beauty on him, ok?” Wang Hao righteously said. “That’s not hard you know.”
“No! I won’t agree!” Even though she had to only use her beauty on the one leading the army, will Fang Yu agree to it? She was originally a male! She will only use her beauty on other beauties. Just the thought of another male running his eyes all over her made her shudder in disgust.
She started to run away, with the other two wanting to chase after her. But before she could do that, they saw the man leading the army looking at their direction. He removed his helmet as he pointed towards them!
Fang Yu could see the man’s ghastly face lit up as they stared at them. His lips started to open as he started to speak. Fang Yu realized that this man will have her captured immediately.
At that time, Fang Yu just closed her eyes as she attempted to use fusion with Fang Lin. She cannot use transposition since it will be suspicious if Fang Lin were to just appear. At least with fusion, Fang Yu could say that she used an invisibility talisman.
But the words that the man uttered made her stop in her tracks. Her eyes widened as she covered her mouth.
Not in horror, but in sheer confusion.
The words that the man had said were,
“Bring that plump man to me! It’s been far too long since my last ‘pig’ has satisfied me. That fatty just fits my requirements!”
“Huh?” Wang Hao could only blankly stare as the wizened old man made a grasping motion with his left hand. Wang Hao was then thrown on the air, straight on the waiting embrace of the man!
“You just have to use your plumpness on him, ok?” Fang Yu said amicably. “That’s not hard you know.”
