The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 164
Chapter 164: High Status
Deathswamp Prefecture Hall, Deathswamp Prefecture.
Wang Hao removed all the errant thoughts on his mind as he ignored the tablet in front of him. With its preciousness, Wang Hao knew that this tablet must have been well-guarded.
He then did what he was supposed to do. He entered the prefecture hall to have himself registered as a citizen of the Deathswamp prefecture.
Wang Hao knew that he had to rush everything he had to do, since he only had 12 hours left to assist the Solstice Kingdom. But with the situation he was in now, even going back to the Solsctice Kingdomwas almost impossible given the distance. Not only that, Wang Hao was also sure that Siwang Wangzi was wary and cautious of him.
“Sigh.” Wang Hao realized that he was stuck deep in the Underworld now. Actually, Wang Hao already had some contingencies prepared to leave the Underworld easily.
But each of these contingencies involved revealing some of his deep secrets. As much as possible, he wanted no one else to discover these secrets.
Because of that, Wang Hao decided to find another way to escape Underworld without resorting to these secrets.
Once Wang Hao entered the prefecture hall, countless eyes stared at him, as if he was a specimen to be observed. Countless divine senses assaulted his body, seemingly intent to discover anything on his body.
5 minutes passed by, and Wang Hao sighed in relief as the weird stares retreated and disappeared. The souls inside the hall then ignored him as they continued on their tasks.
Wang Hao then looked around the hall, comparing its difference on the normal registration halls.
What Wang Hao found out was that there was not that big difference between this reception hall and a normal reception hall. The only difference was that instead of normal, living humans, it was some cute and pretty souls manning the counter.
Wang Hao felt a slight dissonance from seeing such places that were similar, and not similar to each other. Wang Hao then walked towards the currently empty counter. He looked at the one manning the counter. Wang Hao nodded his head, clearly satisfied with the receptionist’s appearance.
She had her blonde hair curled on two sides of her gorgeous face, producing an elegant yet seductive aura. As for her body, Wang Hao could not see any of it yet since they were hidden by the reception desk. But he was sure that this woman had a voluptuous body, seeing that her breasts that were just above the desk were already as large as Fang Yu’s.
“Idiot, this one here is a ghost! You have no way to entice her with your charms!” Wang Hao berated himself as he started talking to the receptionist.
“Hello pretty miss, I want to register as a citizen of Underworld today.” Wang Hao used the most flattering smile he could muster.
The reception girl who was handling Wang Hao gave an excited smile as she licked her lips seductively. Wang Hao could see that the girl was struggling so stop herself from drooling as she stared at Wang Hao’s jiggly soul.
Wang Hao does not know whether he should laugh or cry from seeing this. So even fatty souls were that seductive in the Underworld too? While they may not have the same vitality as the real body of a fatty, just the appearance of a soul of a fatty might have been enough to satisfy most of the Underworld residents.
Wang Hao could not help but compare this infatuation to a trend on a planet he visited.
That planet was a Stage 0 planet, meaning no practitioners cannot go there. But with Wang Hao’s physique, he can go to that planet anytime he wanted it.
Because of the lack of practitioners on that planet, it’s their technology that evolved the most.
On his stay there, Wang Hao noticed that there were some people who instead of having a 3D lover, chose to be attracted to some 2D characters. That was creepily similar to some Underworld residents who seem to like fatty souls rather than the living fatties.
Well, the rarity of finding a living fatty in the Underworld was just as rare as finding a 3D lover in real life. Wang Hao could clearly sympathize to those who chose 2D characters and fatty souls, since they were more abundant.
“Okay, just fill up this form, and you’re good to go.” The receptionist gave a sickeningly sweet smile to Wang Hao as she passed the form to him. Wang Hao shivered in slight panic when she slightly caressed his fingers when they touched each other.
Wang Hao hastily drew his hands away as he started filling up the form.
The residency form only required basic information such as name, hobbies, etc. Wang Hao filled up these slots. He skipped out those with information that he could not yet remember like his parent’s name. He just noted that he suffers from a slight amnesia. He then filled the form with his aura, to imprint it as his own form.
After filling up the form, Wang Hao hastily passed the form to the receptionist. The receptionist looked quite affronted as she put the form in a dark box. Wang Hao craned his neck, clearly eager to see what happens next.
Wang Hao saw the box glowing for a second, and then it coughed out a token. The receptionist grasped the token, and was about to give it to Wang Hao when she saw something written on the token.
[Divine Beast Bloodline]
[Type: Unknown, needs further research]
Wang Hao’s eyes twitched when he realized that this box can still sense some of his bloodline even when he had hidden it well!
With his experience, Wang Hao was able to hide almost all the fluctuations of his bloodline on his soul. He was sure there could be something that can detect beast bloodlines on this place. In order to save himself from any slip-ups, he masked his bloodline aura from any kinds of detectors. At that moment, he was sure that nothing can detect his bloodline.
However, he did not expect this dark box to detect something on his bloodline.
But fortunately, the box registered his bloodline as a Divine Beast Bloodline. That saved him from the chaos that will ensue if his bloodline was registered as a Godly Divine Beast Bloodline.
“I am sorry if I offended you with my actions earlier!” To his surprise, the reception girl’s face paled as she panickedly asked for Wang Hao’s apologies. Upon seeing this, Wang Hao realized that bloodline holders in the Underworld was actually treated as important people.
When she saw Wang Hao’s confused face, the reception girl realized that Wang Hao must have not known about the special status of the bloodline holders. She then explained that due to some reasons, bloodline holders were treated as important personalities in the Underworld.
She also said that the higher the grade of the bloodline, the better treatment they will receive. Wang Hao’s High Grade Divine Beast Bloodline was considered to be the highest in the Underworld, just below the Godly Divine Beasts. That immediately skyrocketed his status in the Underworld.
She then said that each prefecture had a place dedicated for the bloodline holders.
The Deathswamp Prefecture had one, and luckily, it was near the Prefecture Hall.
“Hmph, good thing you know your place.” Wang Hao adopted an arrogant attitude after hearing that his status was quite special. “Since you did not know that I was a bloodline holder, I will be lenient to you. But your actions earlier were still rude, so as a punishment, you need to accompany me for now.”
“Yes…” The reception girl bowed her head, not daring to argue against Wang Hao’s demand. She knew that Wang Hao’s status in the Underworld was now lofty, and someone like her was lucky to even be his follower.
The others inside the Prefecture Hall did not say anything, for fear that Wang Hao will turn his anger to them.
“What is your name?” Wang Hao asked the girl in a soothing voice.
“Roxy.” The girl muttered in a low voice. She seemed to be scared of Wang Hao as she shrunk her body further.
“Er… do not be scared ok? I was just acting earlier.” Wang Hao could not bear to see Roxy getting scared because of him.
Upon hearing this, Roxy pouted angrily. She just realized that she had been conned by Wang Hao big time!
But before Roxy could scold Wang Hao, they saw something in the sky of the Underworld Realm.
Since the Underworld Realm was a place for the dead, its looks were also different from the material realm. Its ground was mostly black, and the skies were dyed red.
Right now, Wang Hao and Roxy saw the red skies turning golden. A crack appeared, and a blindingly white scroll appeared. Its size was so large that Wang Hao could swear that everyone at the Underworld could see it. Seconds passed by, and Wang Hao saw some words being etched on it.
Wang Hao’s breath quickened when he read these words. The words that he saw on the scroll were,
“Selection Competition for the Yama Successor!”
