The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 148
Chapter 148: Mixture
Bloodspear looked at Fang Lin then at Fang Xiushang who was still taunting outside. He looked at Fang Xiushang doubtfully as he said,
“You mean that nutjob will help us ward off those pursuers?”
“Definitely.” Fang Lin flexed his shoulders and his neck as fighting intent filled his body. He then looked at the other three while he was opening the door of the spirit ship. He said with confident voice,
“Let me deal with that guy. Once we are done with him, we will continue moving.”
“Fang Lin!” Xue’er gave a worried look to him before he can go out. She clasped his hand as she worriedly said,
“Be careful, I can sense that he’s at the Second Stage already.”
“I know that. Do not worry, I will not fail.” Fang Lin felt better once he felt her silky fingers intertwined with his. He tightened his grasp as he gave Xue’er a reassuring look.
Mina made a disgusted face upon seeing this, muttering ” I am going to die of diabetes here.”
Fang Lin then spoke to his shadow.
“Yao’er, stay out of this too. I want to beat that brat by my own hands.”
No buts! Just do what I said!”
“Ok…..” Yao’er slithered out of her shadow form and hugged Xue’er. She had a wronged look on her face as she said,
“Let’s play Big Sis!”
“Ah yeah let’s play!” Fang Lin smiled upon seeing this sweet scene. He then rode on a spirit sword as he closed the door. He moved with the sword, showing himself to Fang Xiushang.
Fang Xiushang, who was about to give up taunting Fang Lin, saw Fang Lin approaching him. His eyes widened as he realized that the person who ruined his life was actually holding one of the stone fragments!
“Hahaha! I did not expect that out of all the people, the stone fragment was actually with you!” Fang Xiushang could noT feel anymore happier now. He was at the Second Stage, while Fang Lin was still stuck at the First Stage. Right now was the right time to end him.
Fang Lin just sneered upon seeing the hungry look on Fang Xiushang’s face. He knew that Fang Xiushang thinks that he was holding the advantage now.
Fang Lin decided that he will put Fang Xiushan on some rude awakening later.
“We both know what we want.” Fang Lin said calmly as he observed Fang Xiushang for any signs of movements. “We both want that extra stone fragment.”
“Yes, I want that, and you will give it to me!” Fang Xiushang’s eyes blazed as 50 swords rotated around him. Each one of them were filled with aura comparable to Second Level Swords!
Fang Lin’s eyes narrowed as he realized that Fang Xiushang’s way of fighting was similar to Ling Tian! With Fang Yu’s memories he remembered that Ling Tian used 100 swords to beat up a Prince of the Tian Ji Empire.
Seeing Fang Xiushang use 50 swords in a way similar to Ling Tian made Fang Lin wonder if Fang Xiushang and Ling Tian were accomplices.
“Where did you learn that sword dao?” Fang Lin felt that he had to know where Ling Tian learned his sword dao. He could use that information against Ling Tian later.
“Huh? You do not know?” Fang Xiushang seemed to be shocked upon hearing Fang Lin’s question. “I learned this from the sword dao of the Million Hand Sword God!”
“Oh!” Fang Lin then remembered about the fabled sword cultivator who was considered to be the strongest under the Fifth Stage while he was still alive. Sadly, he was consumed by the Flames of Decay before he can even step on the Sixth Stage. The whole Immortal Continent lamented from the death of such a genius.
“Don’t tell me… you got his inheritance?” Fang Lin knew that there were some powerful cultivators that leave behind the inheritance of all their knowledges for the next generation. If they die, at least their dao can still be studied by other people.
After his death, many searched for the inheritance left by the Million Hand Sword God. But until now, they found nothing. So everyone just accepted the fact that the Million Hand Sword God was a little stingy too.
“Well, I got a piece of his inheritance. Just enough for me to step to the Second Stage.” Fang Xiushang felt extremely smug while saying this. “I plan to find the other parts of the inheritance to strengthen myself. And the Pan Gu Divine Tablet will also help me increase my comprehension!”
Even though Fang Xiushang used the dao of the Million Hand Sword God as his dao, it was still incomplete. Thus, his fighting prowess was way less that the original one. As of now, he was not at the absolute genius level yet. But with the Pan Gu Divine Tablet, he was sure that he can reduce the cracks on his Dao Foundation. He might even be able to create Absolute Dao Pillars!
And if he also completes the inheritance left by the Million Hand Sword God, he might be able to give a fight against Third Stage Practitioners!
“Receive my attack!” Strangely, all 50 swords stuck with each other, forming one large sword. Fang Xiushang swung his hand down while saying,
“Slash! My Sword!”
The large sword then swung downwards, hacking straight towards Fang Lin.
Fang Lin at that time just felt more confusion. He knew that Ling Tian used a similar move as Fang Xiushang now. But what Ling Tian said was ‘Slash! My Sword is my Heart!’. Seeing the power of Fang XIushang’s attack and him only saying ‘Slash! My Sword!’, Fang Lin realized that Fang XIushang’s acquired inheritance was pitifully incomplete.
He then thought to himself,
“Does that mean that Ling Tian got a more complete version of the inheritance of the Million Hand Sword God? Yes, that’s must be it!” He could not help but give Fang Xiushang a pitying look.
Fang Xiushang clearly tied his future cultivation on the inheritance of the Million Hand Sword God. But what he got now was way weaker than what Ling Tian had! Fang Lin reckons that if Fang XIushang and Ling Tian were to fight now, Fang Xiushang will surely be trashed easily.
“In that case, I will also get that inheritance from you!” Aside from the stone fragments, Fang Lin also decided to collect the inheritance of the Million Hand Sword God. Right now, he knew the location of two parts of the inheritance that were with Fang Xiushang and Ling Tian.
Even if he cannot use it as his dao, the techniques that he can learn there can strengthen him more!
Poor Fang Xiushang. In the entirety of the fight, Fang Lin did not even think of the danger that Fang Xiushang can deal. Fang Lin just created more of his future schemes, not caring about Fang Xiushang at all.
But even if he lost interest in Fang Xiushang as an opponent, Fang Lin still had to fight back. He cannot just let himself be beaten by this brat.
He clenched his right hand as it began to glow with three colors.
Red, Brown and Black.
Red for the Yang Essence, Brown for the Mountain-Bashing Boar Essence and Black for the Undead Wolf Essence.
These three essences convened on his right hand, producing violent sounds as they mixed with each other.
“Hiss…” Fang Lin felt pain upon feeling the havoc dealt by the three essences. These essences should have not gone together, but Fang Lin discovered something on his martial arts.
There was a chapter in the Twelve Essences Martial Arts that talks about mixing essences. Since the martial arts can produce 12 essences, the creator of the martial arts tried to find a way to mix these essences together.
Fang Lin had also read about this, so he knew what to do. But with his current strength now, he can only mix at the maximum of three essences. But Fang Lin knew that the more essences were mixed with each other, the more explosive and powerful the resulting attack will be.
Fang Lin focused as he mixed the three essences together. The yang essence represented scorching heat and explosive power. The mountain-bashing boar essence represented powerful defense and heavy attacks. The undead wolf essence represented decay and corrosion.
All these essences revolved perfectly on his right hand, letting out a dim glow.
Once Fang Xiushang saw this, danger signals rang on his head, signaling him to escape. But he just released his attack so he was still off-balanced.
With Fang Yu’s memories of Ling Tian’s attack, Fang Lin was able to find the weak spot of Fang Xiushang’s attack. He threw a punch with his right hand, meeting the sword head-on!
Fang Xiushang’s sword did not even last for a moment before it disassembled against Fang Lin’s punch.
His yang and mountain-bashing boar essence provided his fist with an explosive attack that amplified Fang Lin’s strength. Couple with him striking the weak spot, the sword slash immediately crumbled.
As for the sword qi covering the sword slash, the undead wolf essence directly corroded it, further weakening the attack.
Fang Lin’s fist continued sailing, until it grasped Fang Xiushang by the throat. Fang Xiushang tried to struggle, but to his horror he found a strange dark gas entering his body, wreaking havoc within!
He tried to use his sword qi to repel it, but the backlash of his attack earlier caught up to him now. The best that his sword qi can do now was to prevent the dark gas from spreading more.
With that, he assured that he was not yet crippled. But that left him helpless against Fang Lin. All his qi was now focused on protecting his cultivation. He was now defenseless.
“….” Fang Xiushang could only grit his teeth as he realized he lost to Fang Lin once more. While he was cursing his fate, Fang Xiushang heard Fang Lin saying something.
“Just one attack and you are done? Are you also like this in bed? One-shot wonder?”
“Spurt!” Fang Xiushang coughed blood as he lost consciousness from his anger.
