The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 133
Chapter 133: Dilation
Fang Yu and Long Juo both felt the weird sensation given out by the ‘Underworld Suppressing Formation’. While Long Juo looked confused by what happened, Fang Yu’s eyes widened as she saw a spirit ship coming in from the outside!
Fang Yu recognized this spirit ship from Fang Lin’s memories. This was the spirit ship where the whip-bearing female stone fragment holder resided!
Fang Yu and Fang Lin actually did not know that one of the fragment holders were inside a spirit ship. But when Fang Yu saw this spirit ship, she felt that connection from the stone fragments.
“F**k! So this formation also affects time! They surely are despicable!” Fang Yu managed to piece together the clues just the same time as Ling Tian.
From what Fang Yu had observed, this formation managed to slow down the time inside it so that 3 hours will suddenly pass by outside. That means time was slowed down by a factor of 10,800! 1 second inside the formation was equivalent to 10,800 seconds outside or 3 hours.
This means that the weird feeling she felt earlier was the formation slowing down the time so that 3 hours will suddenly pass by outside.
That was the reason why the fragment holders who were due to arrive 3 hours from now suddenly arrived in a moment’s time.
Fang Yu suppressed the urge to curse as she observed the formation. Its vibrant glow seemed to have lost its luster. She can see that the glow was slowly restoring itself. From her calculations, the glow can restore itself after 3 hours. That means the formation can slow down the time once more after 3 hours.
Fang Yu knew that the reason the formation slowed down the time was for only one thing, for the Underworld Army to arrive earlier.
What Siwang Wangzi promised was that the Underworld Army will come back in 12 hours. Well, its 12 hours on the Underworld. He did not say anything about using the time standards of the residents of the Solstice Kingdom.
His scheme was quite dirty but effective. After the Underworld Army left earlier, the 12-hour time limit had started. Once that happened, the ‘Underworld Suppressing Formation’ absorbed energy for 3 hours to start up its time dilation.
At the point that the formation has absorbed enough energy, there was 9 hours left till the invasion, both in the Underworld and the Solstice Kingdom.
The formation then activated the time dilation technique, slowing down the time inside the Solstice Kingdom by 10,800 times. That means 3 more hours have passed outside while only one second passed in the Solstice Kingdom.
At the Underworld, there’s only 6 hours left till the invasion. But the people in the Solstice Kingdom thinks there’s still 9 hours left!
Fang Yu then extrapolated that the formation will take 3 more hours to recharge itself.
Once it has recharged, there’s only 3 hours left in the Underworld before the invasion, while the people in the Solstice Kingdom assume there’s still 6 hours left.
A that time, the time dilation will activate again.
Once that happens, once second has again passed on the Solstice Kingdom while the remaining three hours in the Underworld will pass by again.
That means that while the people in the Solstice Kingdom thinks that there’s still 6 hours left before the invasion, the 12-hour time limit in the Underworld has reached its end.
The Underworld Army will then rush in, attacking the unprepared Solstice Kingdom!
“Che. So they can cheat like this huh?” Fang Yu was greatly enraged by this. She could not help but sigh in relief because she managed to discover it.
Without the arrival of the two stone fragment holders, Fang Yu would have never realized about the scheme of Siwang Wangzi.
“Wait…..” Fang Yu then realized that with Ling Tian holding a stone fragment, he would have realized what happened! She was about to rush to look for him when she saw something that made her blood run cold.
A woman stepped out from the sprit ship. Right now, Fang Yu could not see her appearance since the woman had mists covering her whole body. The only prominent feature that Fang Yu could see was that she held a whip on her right hand.
Another person then came rushing towards the spirit ship. Like the woman earlier, this new arrival had her appearance unrecognizable. She also held a whip on her right hand. This woman and the fragment holder seemed to know each other as they started to talk to each other.
But that’s what not made stop Fang Yu on her tracks.
It was because she saw Tang Li on the grasp of the newly-arrived woman!
Fang Yu nearly lost her temper and started to rush at them. Good thing Long Juo managed to grab her robes and pull her down to the ground. Only when Fang Yu calmed herself down that she stopped.
Fang Yu bowed slightly and gave Long Juo a gratified look. Long Juo just harrumphed as she gave the two women that Fang Yu tried to rush to a skeptical look.
“Hey, what’s the deal with them?” Long Juo asked warily. “Are they reinforcements?”
“I am not sure, but I have a bad feeling about them. Let’s hide!” Fang Yu pulled Long Juo with her as they hid behind a wall. They timidly peeked above the wall to look at the spirit ship.
Fang Yu and Long Juo strained their ears as they listened to the conversation of the two women. Fang Yu decided to call the one holding the stone fragment as the stone woman, while the one who kidnapped Tang Li as b**ch.
“So, what happened here 003?” Stone woman asked B**ch. “I can sense formations covering this whole place. Don’t tell me…. this is a trap laid by the fragment holder here?”
Even if she knew now that her name was 003, Fang Yu still wanted her to be called B**ch for taking Tang Li away.
B**ch then explained the matters of the Underworld invasion to the stone woman. Tang Li on the other hand, had her face all teared up as she tried not to cry. She occasionally tried to fly away, but she cannot escape the grip of B**ch.
Once stone woman heard all this, she just gave a nod as she said,
“This is good. This gives me more freedom to do things here.” She then looked at Tang Li who helplessly flailed around. “And who is this cute baby here? Come hug big sister!”
“No! You are a baddy!” Tang Li pouted angrily as she swatted stone woman’s hands. “Jusht you wait, Big Sis will reshcue me!!!”
The stone woman seemed shaken by Tang LI’s rejection. She turned to B**ch as she asked, “Why did you capture an angel like her? Did you develop a love for cute things too?”
“Hell no.” B**ch curtly replied. “I just found her clinging quite closely to Fang Yu. I then saw her intelligence. I realized that I can kidnap her and extract information about Fang Yu from her.”
“Extract information!!! Did you hurt the baby?” It seems like the stone woman knew that B**ch extracts information in some…. unscrupulous ways.
“Well, I said to her that if she will not talk, she will be friends with my whip.”
“Good thing this baby was obedient. She told me everything she knew about Fang Yu, even her blergh, escapades with some women.”
“So you did not hurt her in any way.”
“I did not.”
Stone woman sighed in relief as her worst fears did not come true. “So, did this baby tell anything about Fang Yu’s bloodline?”
“Actually, this baby said she knew nothing about it. But,” B**ch suddenly gave a sadistic smile. “She was lying about it!”
Stone woman seemed to have a disappointed look as she stared at Tang Li.
“I thought you are an adorable baby. How disappointing.” Stone woman sighed as she turned to B**ch.
“Lock this baby up. I can see that she will not talk at all about Fang Yu’s bloodline, no matter what we do. We can maybe use her against Fang Yu. As for me, I will gather the remaining stone fragments.”
“Wait!” Before Stone woman could leave, B**ch had one more question for her. “Will we still make a move against that Fang Yu even though we do not have any evidence for her bloodline?”
“Are you saying that the Great Father was wrong about Fang Yu?”
“Just follow what I said.” Stone woman said dismissively as she slapped the ground with her whip.
“Pak pak pak!”
“Yes 000!” B**ch then ran away, bringing Tang Li with her. Stone woman on the other hand, ran on the opposite direction of B**ch.
Only Tang Li’s pleading voice could be heard by Fang Yu.
“F**k!” Fang Yu was feeling conflicted right now. On one hand, she wanted to follow stone woman and find an opportunity to get the stone fragment.
But right now, Tang Li was in danger too. Fang Yu could not forget the distressed and afraid look on Tang Li’s face the whole time B**ch talked with the stone woman.
No baby should face that kind of trauma.
After a few seconds of silence, Fang Yu’s eyes lit up in determination as she said,
“Come with me Long Juo! We are going to rescue someone important to me! Your bird….. may need to wait later.”
“Ah eh? Ok…..” Even though Long Juo seemed to be confused by all that she had seen, she decided to follow Fang Yu.
“Follow me!” Fang Yu and Long Juo ran as they followed the aura of B**ch.
Long Juo, who was trailing behind Fang Yu, sent another message to the person she was talking with earlier.
“Negative. She did not go with me to my room. She was occupied now. Do I need to retreat now?”
“It’s ok. Just keep close to her.”
Fang Yu’s eyes burned with determination as she swore to herself that she will mash that B**ch’s face once she rescues Tang LI.
“Just you wait Tang Li! I am coming for you!”
