The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 2
Chapter 2: Yin-Yang Beast Bloodline
Fang Lin was first suspicious of what the coffin person said. Years in the forest taught him to be vigilant at all times. But as he analyzed the situation, what the coffin person mostly said was true. The only bit he could not believe was the ‘Unparalleled under the Tenth Stage’ part.
“Then let’s start now! I want to be a practitioner already!” Fang Lin could hardly suppress his excitement as he saw his future getting brighter. He still could not forget that it was his weakness that brought him to the Mystical Forest in the first place.
The coffin person however, looked sad as he said, ” It will be really difficult for you to cultivate, ai, such a good bloodline, but it was wasted on this planet!”
“What is my bloodline then?” Fang Lin was curious about it. He heard about the stories of the divine beasts from his hateful parents. They were the beasts born with special abilities and the stronger their bloodline was, the stronger the abilities of the beast will be. The most powerful of them were the godly divine beasts, with abilities against the laws of the universe.
Through some circumstances, the bloodline of these divine beasts could appear on non-beasts especially humans. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).
“You have the Yin-Yang Beast bloodline”. The coffin person said dully.
“Is that bloodline powerful?” It might be just Fang Lin, but that bloodline sounds a little… generic.
“Of course! It is a Godly divine beast bloodline! It allows you to do both immortal cultivation and godly ascension!” The coffin person had a profound expression on his face as he said such thing.
Fang Lin was surprised from this. From his knowledge, practicing these two paths was impossible. Those who aspire to become Gods want to gain recognition from the Universe while those who strive to be Immortals get their power from their own comprehension of the universe. These are diametrically opposite paths that no one could traverse.
The coffin person laid down on his coffin as he said, ” Because of your heavenly-defying bloodline, the universe will not allow you to easily enter the body refinement stage. That is the reason why you cannot sense the mortal qi. Not only that, you also have to break through each stage of the two paths at the same time! That means you cannot breakthrough from Qi Condensation to Foundation Establishment until you are ready to breakthrough from Mana Circulation to Mana Materialization stage”.
“For you to refine your body, you cannot use mortal qi, you must use both the Immortal Qi of the Immortals and the Divine Energy of the Demigods which are sadly of the sixth stage. This is a Fifth Stage world so the strongest who could appear here are only those of the Fifth Stage. Once they reach the sixth stage they will get transported to higher ranked planets.”
Fang Lin looked down while clenching his fists, appearing extremely vexed. “Turns out I’m a great talent, but why must I be so unlucky!” Fang Lin realized that it was his own talent that was holding him back now. He sighed sadly, as he knew he cannot just lament on what could have and have not been.
“Hehe do not worry though, I can help you complete the body refinement stage in one go”. The coffin person said with a smirk. “But first, you must kowtow to me as your master”.
Fang Lin immediately kneeled down, bowing his head in front of his master. “Disciple Fang Lin greets Master Coffin Person!” Now that the chance was right in front of him, Fang Lin will never let it go! He can feel that this person in front of him was sincere, so he felt safe on entrusting his life on him.
“What coffin person, I have a name you know!” The coffin person stood up and proudly said “I am the almighty, almighty…”
“Hah, hah, it seems like I forgot the memories of my past life too. I only remember factual information…”
“But do not worry “, he said with a flourish of his hand. ” I also have a Godly divine beast bloodline, the Energy Beast bloodline!”
“Is that something related to energy? Can`t those people at the high stage achieve that too? So what’s special with that?” Fang Lin also felt that his master’s bloodline seems generic too.
“What’s special with that? ” The coffin person smiled smugly as he said, “Even if I have no cultivation, I can just absorb all kinds of energy, even immortal qi and divine energy. Along with my space-time abilities, that made me really strong!”
“SO YOU HAVEN’T CULTIVATED AT ALL” Fang Lin’s eyes stared dully at his boasting master.
“How about the space-time magic?” Fang Lin felt some sense of foreboding as he awaited his master’s answer.
“I am just using one of the Ten Universe Artifacts, the Space-Time Gyroscope.”
“That was not your own magic, but something brought out by an artifact?”
“How the hell are you supposed to help me if you cannot even cultivate!!!” Fang Lin was already numb at this point. “Maybe pessimism is better so that my hopes will not always be dashed.”
The coffin person helplessly sighed and said, “I may not be able to cultivate but I have lots of books for cultivation stored in my space pocket”
“You can’t access it now right?”
“Yes I can’t”
“Then what the hell are you going to do, MASTER?”, Fang Lin stressed the word master.
“I am going to stimulate your bloodline with my bloodline. Because they are both Godly divine beast bloodlines, they will create a synergy that will release a strong energy. Do not underestimate this energy, for it will be powerful. I will use this energy to temporarily unlock six petals from the seal. It will allow me to use the immortal qi and the divine energy of the Sixth Stage to immediately refine your body. Mind you, this unlocking will only last for a week and it will only work once. I can only temporarily unlock a seal once and after that I could only unlock the seals through the method I told you earlier.”
The coffin person then stared solemnly at Fang Lin as he continued,
“This means I need you to reach the peak of body refinement in a week’s time. Do worry if it’s your first time, it will really hurt, but I will be gentle.”
“Master, are you into that kind of stuff?”
“AWWW HEELLLLL NOOOOO!!!!!” The coffin person realized the double meaning of his statement. He coughed slightly to divert the topic. Fang Lin smiled, clearly pleased on teasing his master.
The coffin person was no idiot. He saw Fang Lin’s expression, and realized he was just messing with him. He just sighed as he said,
“Just prepare yourself for the incoming week, your resolve will be tested here.”
