The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 135
Chapter 135: Deal
Before meeting up with the Underworld Army, Wang Hao had put all his hopes on Fang Yu’s beauty. But he did not anticipate the next set of events that have happened. He heard what Siwang Wangzi said about him wanting Wang Hao.
He shook his head from hearing such bizarre statements.
Wang Hao did not expect that the residents of the Underworld had such a fetish for fatties. But before Wang Hao could ruminate on it, he felt a unique energy coming from the palms of the old man and entering Wang Hao’s body.
Wang Hao immediately realized that this energy has the abilities to paralyze living beings. But with his immunity against energy attacks, Wang Hao can easily brush it off.
But then he realized that now was his chance to get close on Siwang Wangzi. So he did not absorb the energy. Instead, he let it permeate his cells while he acted paralyzed. This made everyone think that he was paralyzed by the old man.
After saying some creepy lines to Wang Hao, Siwang Wangzi hoisted Wang Hao as they entered the Underworld. Once Siwang Wangzi had brought him into the Underworld Realm, Wang Hao knew that he will be under numerous sticky situations later.
As for how literally sticky it would be, he does not know for sure.
“Eat this.” The old man with Siwang Wangzi handed a pellet towards Wang Hao. Wang Hao then found out that the paralyzing energy inside his body had retreated from his arms. He realized that this was meant for him to move his arms.
Wang Hao tried to appear to look struggling for a moment as he moved his arms. The old man smiled, seemingly satisfied with the effect of the paralysis.
“Eat this faster, this is the only thing that will help you survive here.”
Wang Hao knew what the old man was talking about.
The Underworld was retrofitted for the souls of the dead. This was not made for the living. The infernal and death energy in the Underworld Realm will easily kill off any living beings that goes there.
As for the pellet Wang Hao swallowed, it contained traces of life energy, enough to sustain a living being for 12 hours. Once that time limit finishes, they have to take the pill again.
But with Wang Hao’s abilities, he was completely immune to the effects of the death energy. But still, he had to pretend that he cannot survive on the Underworld easily.
If he showed any of his energy-wielding abilities here, his plan will be busted immediately.
The army continued marching for an hour until they reached a towering castle. The castle looked like as if it was the typical castle where the main villain hides the main character’s love interest.
In other words, an evil castle.
The army saluted Siwang Wangzi and the old man before dispersing towards their barracks.
“All hail Commander Wangzi and Sage Merlick!”
“Pfft…. Merlick? What’s with that name? Is your tongue extra long or something?” Wang Hao stifled his giggles as he tried to calm himself down from hearing such name.
“Zip your mouth, or I will paralyze you again!”
“Ok ok!” Wang Hao raised his hands in surrender. Before Siwang Wangzi and Merlick could enter the castle, Wang Hao said,
“Can you guys listen to me out first? I have a very good deal for both of you.”
“Huh, so a pet of mine dares to give an offer to me? Hmm…. Say your piece now. If its good…. Maybe we can have some agreement.”
“Wang’er! Do not listen to him!” Merlick frantically shouted. “I know that people like him are schemers. We don’t even know if him being here was part of their plan.”
“Oh please, do not call me Wang’er!” Siwang Wangzi exasperatedly replied. He then said, “Whatever schemes he throws at us, the might of the Underworld will just squash if flat.”
Wang Hao gave a sigh of relief as he succeeded on convincing Siwang Wangzi. He then took a deep breath as he accessed an object on his space pocket. Actually, its not an object. It’s a person.
And that person was Fatty Zhou.
There was a flash of light, and poor Fatty Zhou appeared in front of them. His massive body jiggled as he hit the ground hard. Once he was stood up, Fatty Zhou grabbed Wang Hao’s legs as he bawled on him.
“Please do not give me to him! I will do anything, just please do not give me to this pervert!”
Fatty Zhou clearly heard all the perverted statements said by Siwang Wangzi while they were marching earlier. Wang Hao had of course purposefully made Fatty Zhou hear all of it.
Fatty Zhou was begging Wang Hao now because he knew how much Siwang Wangzi wanted to get his hands on someone like Fatty Zhou.
Not only that, but Fatty Zhou was way fatter than Wang Hao.
Instead of questioning Wang Hao on how he managed to bring another human with him, Siwang Wangzi and Merlick were busy ogling at Fatty Zhou.
“Hiii!!!” Fatty Zhou could only shrink back in fear as he saw the hungry looks on the faces of Siwang Wangzi and Merlick. Merlick did not forget to give Fatty Zhou a life pill first. Fatty Zhou hastily swallowed it as he gave Wang Hao those puppy eyes.
What Wang Hao said upon seeing this was,
“So, does this guy satisfy you more?”
Tell me what you want then.” Siwang Wangzi’s statement sounded like a death sentence for Fatty Zhou.
“Merlick, take him to my room. After the invasion, I can let you borrow him.”
“Oh, you should have said that earlier Young Master.” Merlick happily replied as he brought Fatty Zhou into Siwang Wangzi’s room. Because he was paralyzed, Fatty Zhou could only give Wang Hao a venomous look as he left.
“Ok, so getting back to what we talked about earlier. What do you want in exchange for him? I can even allow you to go back now.” Siwang Wangzi was clearly satisfied with Fatty Zhou. He seemed to even forget that it was Wang Hao who was supposed to be there.
“It’s quite simple. Let me join the Underworld Realm.”
“Hmmm?” Even an idiot would realize that something was up with Wang Hao’s statement. “You want to serve the Underworld Realm?”
“What serve? I mean, I want to join the Underworld Realm.”
“But you are a living being. You can only join the Underworld Realm once you die and become a soul. If you are a living being, you can only choose to serve as a retainer.” Siwang Wangzi shook his head as he patiently explained the difference between the two.
“If you want to join the Underworld, you have to die first. Are you willing to abandon your mortal shell and join us?”
Siwang Wangzi knew that as long as Wang Hao was alive, he surely have some plans to save the Solstice Kingdom. But with his question to Wang Hao right now, Siwang Wangzi had cornered Wang Hao!
If Wang Hao refuses to die now to join the Underworld, that means he really had some ulterior motives. Siwang Wangzi will straight up kill him right away. But if Wang Hao decides to die, he already lost any way to help his friends.
No matter how loyal he was to the Solstice Kingdom, once his soul was in the Underworld, he had no way to have a new body. And without a body, any plans of his will be nothing facing the might of the Underworld.
Whatever answer Wang Hao will give, Siwang Wangzi had cut off any way for him.
Siwang Wangzi then stared at Wang Hao intensely, waiting for his answer.
A few seconds passed, and Wang Hao fished out a pill from his robes. Once Siwang Wangzi saw it, his eyes narrowed. The pill that Wang Hao held was clearly a poison pill!
Wang Hao swallowed it, and after a few moments, he slumped forward, with his heart stopping its beating. A few more seconds passed, and a translucent ball flew out of his body.
This ball floated in front of Siwang Wangzi as it stretched in and out. The ball then grew in size as it formed limbs and body and a head.
Once it was done transforming, the ball transformed into a see-through body. It looked like as if anything can just pass through this body. It also looked hazy, as if it can fade away at any moment.
This body that Siwang Wangzi sees right now was the soul body. This was the form of the soul when it leaves its physical shell. Siwang Wangzi nodded appreciably as he saw who the soul body looked like.
The soul body looked exactly like Wang Hao!
“Told you, I am serious. My conviction to join the Underworld is SOULid.”
