The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 150
Chapter 150: Possession
No. 5 wiped some blood that dripped from his mask as he and his companions left the Forest of Death. From the looks of it, they suffered some injuries on the skirmish.
“Tsk. Those undead sure are tough.” No. 2 muttered as she stopped the intense trembling in her body, clearly due to some injuries. Her graceful curves indicate that she had a buxom body, capable of attracting anyone. Good thing she always wore loose robes. “Even if they were just at the peak of the Dao Domain Stage, they were able to ask some power from the Forest of Death to raise their battle prowess!”
“And each of us had to fight two of them at once.” No. 4 said tacitly, in agreement with No. 2. No. 4 had a stocky body, with a large axe on his back. “With that, our fight with them was almost a tie.”
“Hmmph! Only when we used our lifeblood weapons that we were able to kill them!” No. 1, who was the smallest of them shrilly said. No. 1’s gender was unknown, but his/height was around that of a child. He/she gave No. 3 a look as he/she said,
“What do you think, No. 3?”
“……..” No. 3 said nothing, as he flew behind No. 5. His aura indicates that he wants to be ignored altogether. The others took no offense of it. They must have been used to his silence already.
No. 5 then said sternly,
“Even though we managed to destroy their bodies, we actually were not able to kill them.”
“Because of that object in the Forest of Death?” No. 1 said with a bored voice. It seems like he also knew that the Undead were not that easy to kill.
“Yes. You can say that all the creatures of the forest were being fueled to live by that object. Even if their bodies were destroyed, that object will just reconstruct their bodies, and voila, they’re back!”
“That was the reason they were called Undead.” No. 4 continued his lecture. “They basically cannot be killed in the Forest of Death. But that has some limitations too.”
“First, the higher the stage, the longer the time it will take for them to recover if their bodies were destroyed. For those Fifth Stage Undead, it will be at least 5 years before they can move again.”
“Second, they cannot leave the Forest of Death since their life was explicitly tied to it. If they go, they will die.”
“Ok ok, let’s stop those lectures now.” No. 2 said as she clapped her hands. “Now, we have to get that Fang Lin, then we will search for Fang Xiushang. Let’s move!”
All five of them flew in pursuit of Fang Lin, leaving behind a huge crater in the Forest of Death! Countless trees were strewn around as numerous slash marks covered the ground.
Bits of flesh and bones were scattered on the Forest Floor, and each of them emanates the aura of the Fifth Stage! These pieces were the Undead that fought the Punishers.
Even with their superior numbers and home advantage, they were defeated soundly by them. With the damage they received, reforming after 5 years was very good already.
As of the moment, some of the pieces moved ever so slowly, trying to reform. Countless death energy covered these pieces of flesh, speeding up the process.
Strangely enough, there were some pieces of flesh that the death energy ignored. These pieces of flesh contained the aura of the Undead Wolf and Deer…….
Outside the Forest of Death.
Two silhouettes appeared, slowly walking away from the Forest of Death. The light of the stars showed that these creatures were a wolf and a deer. Their size and appearance were that of the normal wolf and deer. Their auras were weak, and it was obvious that they went through a lot.
If Fang Lin and Xue’er were here, they will feel that these two were the Undead Wolf and Deer!
Right before they were defeated, the Undead Wolf and Deer removed their souls from their body and sent it outside the Forest of Death. There, their souls managed to possess a living wolf and deer.
Even though these bodies possess the soul of the Undead Wolf and Deer, these possessed bodies can be away from the Forest of Death.
The only limitation that the Forest of Death have is that their original bodies cannot leave the forest. It was their souls that can still go outside.
The only downside of this was that the body they possess have no way to harness the strength of their original bodies.
Their original bodies in the Forest of Death were tailor-made for them. This was the only body that can use their power. If they were in a different body, they have no way to use all that power.
Another risk of this method was that their souls will be in immediate danger. Many practitioners seek souls that can give them some comprehensions. Souls of the Undead can give them those.
Inside the Forest of Death, they have no fear since they were protected by the forest. But once they use a possessed body to wander outside, they will be screwed.
With their power weakened and no protection from the Forest of Death, their souls will be easy pickings to the practitioners who detect them.
These risks basically stopped any Undead to wander outside with possessed bodies.
But amazingly, the Undead Wolf and Deer chose to do that!
Right now, they have the power level of Second Stage Practitioners. This was a far drop from their peak Fifth Stage level.
From the way the wolf was walking, he seems to follow the path Fang Lin and Xue’er took. The deer followed behind him silently, increasing her speed as his strides began to lengthen.
Minutes later, and they gained perfect control of their bodies. They were now running at full speed, rushing towards the path towards the Solstice Kingdom!
While they were running, the wolf faced the deer. He had a confused expression on his face as he said,
“I dared to put myself on this danger because I felt that I still have to find a way to help my daughter. Even if it may cost my life, I will do anything to help her! But as for you, you have no relation with her. Well, you might be her step-mother in the future, but are you really that willing to put yourself in danger just to accompany me?”
“Hmmph!” The deer replied arrogantly. She blatantly avoided the wolf’s gaze as she said,
“Remember, you are my rival! I cannot just allow you to go play somewhere else without me! I still have to prove that I am better than you!”
“………. Ok then.” Even though he felt her reasoning was twisted and flawed, the wolf took no notice of it. “Well then, let’s see who can reach my daughter first. The loser has to follow a request from the winner.”
“……… Fine!” Dust billowed the air as they pushed their bodies to the limits.
No. 5 was whistling to himself merrily as he chased Fang Lin with his companions. He and the punishers had seen Fang Lin and his companions entering a spirit ship earlier. They could not prevent them from leaving, not with the Undead they were fighting earlier.
But he had no worries of them having a head start. He knew that with the movement speed of the Punishers, catching up to them will be just a matter of time.
“Fang Lin… time for you to go back.” The punishers slowed a little when they saw Fang Lin’s spirit ship leisurely moving across the sky.
Once he saw it, No.5 started to make his move. But before he and the other punishers could attack, they saw something that made their blood run cold.
The door at the back of the spirit ship was open, and they could see a person standing there. But this person was naked, and was bounded by talismans! This person shivered from the cold and the humiliation that he was feeling now.
This person was Fang Xiushang!
Fang Lin stared at the punishers whose souls seemed to fly out of their bodies. He managed to stop himself from laughing as he said,
“Well, we all need to do some talking.”
