The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 136
Chapter 136: Double Trouble
“Ho?” Siwang Wangzi was impressed upon seeing Wang Hao decisively killing himself. He then sneered as he waved his hands towards Wang Hao’s body.
“Let me destroy your body, just to make sure.” With him at the Underworld, Siwang Wangzi can fully exert his strength at the Fifth Stage. Wang Hao’s body disintegrated entirely, leaving nothing but dust.
It was then that Siwang Wangzi heaved a sigh of relief. By this time, he was sure that Wang Hao would have no tricks to use against him.
“Now, I am sure of your loyalty!”
Wang Hao on the other hand, seemed to be unperturbed by what Siwang Wangzi did. His chubby soul form just smiled as he replied,
“So what shall I do now?”
“Huh?” Before Wang Hao could feel it, he felt the space around him twisting and shifting. He knew that he can dispel this with the Space-Time Gyroscope, but that was a big secret of him too. So he had no choice but to let himself get teleported away.
The last thing that he saw was Siwang Wangzi saying,
“You think I will let you join the army? Wishful thinking!”
Even though Wang Hao was already in his soul form and had his body destroyed, Siwang Wangzi still have to be sure. He knew that people with attitude like Wang Hao were the more dangerous ones to deal with in terms of scheming.
Because Wang Hao gave him such a good gift, Siwang Wangzi granted his request to join the Underworld. But why the hell would Siwang Wangzi allow Wang Hao near him or the Solstice Kingdom? So he decided to just make Wang Hao a member of the Cleaning Services.
The role of the cleaning services was just simple, to just clean.
As for what they are going to clean, it actually varies.
It might be carcasses of dead beings that accidentally wash up, or the bodies of those who fail in the Underworld Tactics.
Now, Siwang Wangzi used his command token to bring Wang Hao to one of the stations of the cleaning services.
“Hehehe.” Siwang Wangzi rubbed his hands gleefully once Wang Hao had fully disappeared. He started walking to his room, clearly excited for his ‘refreshments’.
Only one second has passed by and with his spatial skills, Wang Hao knew that he had been teleported around 100 million kilometers away.
“Tsk.” Even with his current teleportation abilities now, it will still take him around a very long time just to reach the portal to the Solstice Kingdom.
“That pervert sure really is wary against me. Sigh, I really f**ked up now.” Wang Hao did not expect that Siwang Wangzi will that be wary against him. He even made sure that Wang Hao will be out of his sight.
He stared all around him, observing his new surroundings. But what he could only see was the vast expanse of red lands. He could not even see any structures anywhere.
But before Wang Hao started to get irritated, he heard a someone calling out behind him.
“Yo, little fishy. Do not look there. Face here.” Wang Hao complied, and he saw an old man beckoning to him. What made Wang Hao intrigued was that the man was in is soul form. He seemed to have not even managed to create even a passable physical body.
“Oh, you must be wondering why I look like this.” The old man seemingly noticed Wang Hao’s confused expression. “Actually, it was because those who were untalented will be dumped in the cleaning services.”
“Untalented? By that you mean..”
“Yes, untalented in the Underworld Tactics.” The old man then explained it to Wang Hao further.
It seemed like even though all the souls in the Underworld train in the Underworld Tactics, some of them may not even be able to step in the First Stage. The old man said that for those people, they were delegated to manual labor.
Only those who successfully steps at least on the First Stage can have better living in the Underworld.
“So that’s it.” The old man smiled deprecatingly. “I am at the Underworld for 2,000 years, yet I could not even step in the First Stage. How about you?”
“Actually, I just died 5 minutes earlier.” Wang Hao replied sheepishly.
“Eh? You just died earlier? Are you sure about that?” The old man seemed to be shocked from what Wang Hao said. He gripped Wang Hao’s shoulders as shook him hard. “Are you really sure?”
“Yes I am! Why does it matter to you anyway?”
“Because those who just died and go in the Underworld should be brought in a Prefecture Hall!”
“Don’t tell me you do not even know about that?”
“Old man, didn’t I tell you I just died earlier? How can I know about that?”
“Ok, some more explaining to do.” The old man then started his explanation about the Prefecture Hall. The more that Wang Hao listened to the old man, the more anger that he felt towards Siwang Wangzi.
That pervert really conned Wang Hao big time!
From the old man’s explanation, the Underworld Realm was divided into 108 Prefectures. Each time a new soul comes in the Underworld, they must choose a prefecture to reside in. Once they chose one, they should go to the Prefecture Hall of the said prefecture to register their citizenship.
If they do not register their citizenship, they will be treated as a foreign element and will not receive any of the treatments given by the Underworld to its residents.
“F**k!” Upon seeing the ashen look on Wang Hao’s face, the old man sighed as he fiddled with his robes. The object that he brought out was a bone whistle
“Good thing you met me. I have a friend that can bring us to a prefecture hall now. Join me, and we will have you registered. We can talk about your job later.” The old man then used the bone whistle.
Moments later, and they saw a dragon-like creature flying towards them. At its back was an armored man, similar to those who invaded the Solstice Kingdom earlier.
Upon seeing the old man, the armored man let out a laugh as he stepped of the wyvern. He said in a booming voice,
“Hahaha! Old Billy my friend! What did you call me here for?” It seemed like these two had a cordial relationship as they talked to each other amicably.
Old Billy then explained about Wang Hao’s situation to the armored man. The armored man nodded as he understood the situation.
“Come with me. We will go to the Deathswamp Prefecture.” Wang Hao then rode the wyvern while the armored man took the reins. As for Old Billy, he stayed behind, saying that he will just wait for them to come back.
“Ha!” The armored man lashed tightened his grip on the reins as the wyvern flew in the air. Wang Hao gripped the wyvern tightly as it accelerated towards the Deathswamp prefecture.
It may be Wang Hao’s luck, but it only took the wyvern an hour to reach the Prefecture Hall of the Deathswamp Prefecture. The wyvern descended in front of the hall, with the ground letting out a squelching sound as Wang Hao jumped off the dragon.
“Just enter the hall and register quickly. I will be waiting here. Once you are done, we will go back to Old Billy.” Even though he was friendly to Old Billy, the armored ma seemed to have no regard for Wang Hao. Wang Hao did not mind it, since his stay in the Underworld will be just short anyway.
The ground was squishy and mushy as he walked towards the Prefecture Hall. Wang Hao was surprised to see that around him, not a single presence was even present. He ignored this creepy situation as he opened the gates.
Once he was past the gate, Wang Hao stared at the banner grandly sprawled at the entrance. It read, ‘Deathswamp Prefecture Hall’. The banner was made and carved in stone. Anyone who sees this can feel the imposing aura that it brought out.
But what made Wang Hao interested in this banner was because of a stone tablet stuck at the middle of the banner.
“Good tablet! I can feel that this will be beneficial to those who step on the Mana Circulation Stage!” Wang Hao could feel the powerful fluctuations of mana coming out from the tablet.
If Fang Yu and Fang Lin were here, they will surely be shocked by this stone tablet.
It was because this stone tablet exactly looked like the complete Pan Gu Divine Tablet!
