The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 178
Chapter 178: Amazement
Gabrielle was speechless after she heard Wang Hao’s request. He already stole from her, yet he still wanted to get more? But she could not show any signs of anger since she was afraid of offending him. What she can only say was,
“I am sorry, but I got here alone. As for where Bob and Krull and are, I honestly do not know.”
“Hmmm…” Wang Hao stared straight at Gabrielle, as if he was trying to drill deep into her mind. Gabrielle endured the instinct to look away as she stared back while trembling faintly.
“Sigh.” Wang Hao looked away and talked to his followers that made Gabrielle heave her chest in relief. She then listened to what Wang Hao and his followers were talking about.
“Hey Roxy, how many survivors returned from the last time the Dream Mist appeared?”
“Well… there are no survivors…. Teehee!” Roxy’s attempt to cheer Wang Hao up failed spectacularly as a somber atmosphere covered them.
“Does that mean we have no way to go out here?” Wang Hao was now worried in staying in the Dreamworld. He still has some tricks that can help him survive in the Dreamworld. His only problem was the length of his stay.
Due to the delicate condition of the Planet Thrae, Wang Hao had to go back to the Underworld as fast as possible in order to stop the invasion in the Planet Thrae. Every second that he was stuck in the Dreamworld means another second wasted to help his disciples.
“Well, all the victims of the mist last time were ordinary Underworld residents, so they might not have the skills to survive the Dreamworld for that long. But this batch in the Dreamworld right now has some of the most talented practitioners in the Underworld’s current era!” Roxy smiled when she saw that what she said seemed to reinvigorate her companions. She then puffed out her chest proudly as she continued talking.
“First of all, we have Jieshu who was a former Ninth Stage Practitioner. Then there is Huo Huangdi, with a Godly Divine Beast Bloodline. Of course, we also have Master Wang Hao with a High Grade Divine Beast Bloodline. Lastly, Siwang Wangzi was here in the Dreamworld too!” Roxy pumped her fist as she declared,
“As long as those 4 talented practitioners partner up, there is a possibility to escape the Dreamworld!”
“……” Wang Hao had an awkward smile on his face while Gabrielle looked down sadly after hearing Roxy’s declaration.
Roxy saw the weird actions done by Wang Hao and Eleanor. She tilted her head as she asked Wang Hao,
“Is there anything wrong Master Wang Hao?”
This time, it was Gabrielle who answered Roxy’s question.
“Actually… I saw Master Wang killing Siwang Wangzi earlier.”
It took Gabrielle around 10 minutes to fully explain everything that happened in the clash between Siwang Wangzi and Wang Hao.
“…”Wang Hao shrugged his shoulders when he saw Roxy’s reproaching look to him. “What can I do? He wanted to kill me earlier, so I had to fight him. It was self defense!”
“You know Master Wang Hao, the way you talk right now is like a criminal denying his crimes.”
“Ugh!” Wang Hao looked slightly sad upon hearing this. But upon seeing the teasing look on her face, he realized she was just teasing him.
Wang Hao smiled slightly as he gave Roxy something.
“Take this. This is for you helping me out a lot.”
Roxy’s eyes widened when she saw what the object on her palm was.
It was Siwang Wangzi’s Ghost Lamp!
“But… this is too precious, I think I cannot receive this!” Roxy shook her head side to side as she tried to give back the lamp to Wang Hao.
Wang Hao just laughed at this while saying,
“If you don’t get this, I will give this to Gabrielle.”
“Me?” Gabrielle pointed to herself, looking quite confused. She was busy staring at the scenery earlier that she zoned out of Wang Hao’s conversation. Only when she heard her name being said that she looked back.
“Wait Master Wang Hao! I will take it now!” Roxy hastily withdrew her hands as she imprinted the Ghost Lamp with her soul essence.
With Siwang Wangzi dead, all the imprints he had on his treasures were all gone. This assured Wang Hao that Roxy will have no problem making the Ghost Lamp her item.
“Fwoosh.” The ghost lamp let out a glow as it entered Roxy’s body. Roxy let out sounds of panic as she touched her body all over, trying to feel where the lamp was.
Wang Hao raised his eyes as he asked her,
“What exactly are you doing Roxy?”
Roxy’s coquettish reply was,
“Ah Master, a black, hard and long object just went inside me. I am trying to pull it out now.”
“……..” Wang Hao did his absolute best to stop himself from praising Roxy. He could only think to himself,
“What a high-class innuendo! Only highly skilled people can achieve this! Even I have not reached her level yet!” He gave Roxy a silent bow of admiration.
“Wait what are you talking about!” Gabrielle blushed upon hearing Roxy’s suggestive words. She was clearly flustered from these kinds of jokes. “You cannot talk about that in public!”
“Huh? I was talking about the ghost lamp that went inside my body. Are you thinking of something else?” Roxy gave a predatory smile as if she smelled some blood on her prey.
“Ah well yes, I was talking about the lamp too.” Gabrielle muttered as she looked away from Roxy.
“Your expression cannot fool me now.” Roxy leaned on Gabrielle’s ear as she murmured,
“No!!” Gabrielle blushed red as she stared at Roxy angrily. She took some deep breaths as she said,
“At least I am not an Old Hag like you.”
“Huh?” It was Roxy’s turn to be affected. She was clearly a good-looking woman, yet her age seemed to be a sensitive issue to her. Well, Gabrielle must have gotten the data about Wang Hao’s followers. Her knowing about Roxy’s age is quite probable.
Of course, Wang Hao was not that dense to ask what her age was. That was one of a woman’s sacred treasure.
“Grr. You use make-up to cover your wrinkles and stretch marks!”
“You read erotic books and play with it every night!”
“If my great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother was here, she might recognize you as her childhood friend!”
“With how perverted you are, its no wonder you sat beside Mr. Tentacles.”
“Take that back!”
The three men who watched Roxy and Gabrielle’s shouting match could only stand there awkwardly. As time passed by, their insults for each other got more and more creative. By that time, nobody from the three males wanted to step forward to stop the fight.
They were sure that the one who attempts to placate the two furious women will be the focus of their insults. They shivered, not moving an inch.
After quite some time, Wang Hao sighed as he started to walk towards Gabrielle and Roxy who were still busy dissing each other. Old Billy and Jin gave Wang Hao a respectful and solemn look. Wang Hao’s sacrifice will not be in vain.
But before Wang Hao can split the two women away, he heard a booming sound in the distance.
“Boom!” The sound was so intense that Gabrielle and Roxy stopped insulting each other. Both of them gave angry looks to each other as they approached Wang Hao, who was staring at the source of the sound.
“Amazing.” Roxy breathed in amazement when she saw what was happening.
There, in the sky, stood two practitioners.
One was covered in a flaming cloak with chains made of flame covering his body. The other one was a woman, who just stood there, revealing an aura of indifference.
Roxy suppressed her excitement as she realized that Huo Huangdi was facing off against Jieshu!
“Amazing.” Roxy also heard Wang Hao muttering the same thing as her. Roxy smiled, clearly understanding what Wang Hao was talking about. After all, Wang Hao was just a newbie in the Underworld. Seeing powerful people like them must have amazed him. But Roxy knew that in the future, Wang Hao will be one of the top practitioners in the Underworld.
She was about to say that Wang Hao will also reach their level when he suddenly said,
“These Huo Huangdi and Jieshu must be filthy rich! As long as we use their fight to our advantage… we can strip them off of their everything!”
