The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 201
Chapter 201: Mistaken
Everyone in the courtyard were frozen as they stared at the new arrivals. They could hardly believe that the Underworld Army actually broke their 12-hour time limit promise!
“Despicable! Your leader promised that you lot will be back in 12 hours, yet you arrived way earlier than that!” Li Min shook his fist towards the armored man as he continued raging on. “So much for you promises!”
“Actually…” Fang Lin used that moment to explain about the time trick used by Underworld Army. To his surprise, Fang Lin saw that none of the Underworld Soldiers made a move. It was as if they were waiting for the orders of the armored man.
Upon hearing his explanation, the first thing that LI Min did was to get angry at Fang Lin.
“Hey Fang Xiushang, you should have told this to all of us earlier!”
“Hey! I just discovered it recently, and I was about to tell it to all of you earlier!” Fang Lin said as he vehemently defended himself. “I think we should stop worrying about that first. What we should do now was to face the enemies.”
“You are right. Then I guess we will just talk about what you did later.” Li Min said as he faced the Underworld Army sullenly. His eyes narrowed as he stared at the army’s weird behavior.
“What the hell are they doing? Why are they just there staring at us?” While Fang Lin was thinking of these things, he saw the armored man beckoning someone. The person the armored man was calling was a wizened old man.
The old man’s body was bent forward, as if his body was not that fit at all. But Fang Lin could sense a hidden power in the old man’s body.
The armored man whispered something on the old man’s ear. Minutes of tense silence passed by as everyone saw the armored man and the old man exchanging whispers with each other.
The old man then broke off, with his body turning around as he faced the tense crowd. He let out a toothy smile as he declared,
“Greetings to all of you, residents of this Kingdom. My master, an esteemed Prince of the Underworld, was pleased with this place, thus he decided to make this planet his own territory. Rejoice! For the best ruler for this world has now come!”
“Tch.” After seeing the mannerisms of the armored man and the new old man, Fang Lin was now sure that this armored man was different from Siwang Wangzi. This fact alone made him worried for Wang Hao.
Siwang Wangzi was supposed to be the one to conquer this planet. Seeing a different person coming here made Fang Lin think that something must have happened to Siwang Wangzi. And if something happened to him, then Wang Hao was surely implicated too.
Before anyone could raise their complaint, Fang Lin saw the armored man alighting off his horse. With his armor covering his face and his whole body, nobody knew what his expression was right now. Was it disdain? Arrogance? Or pity?”
As his feet touched the ground, everyone suddenly felt a powerful pressure emanating from the armored man.
Almost everyone near the armored man were forced to kneel by that powerful pressure, including the Underworld Soldiers and the old man. The Fang Clan members, Immortal God Sect Disciples and the rebels were all kneeling now. Only those with great talents like Xue’er and Li Min were still standing, albeit barely.
As for Fang Lin, he forced his body to stand straight as he resisted that pressure. But what mostly preoccupied his mind now was not the eagerness to resist such pressure. He was stunned as he knew the only person who can let out such pressure in this kind of situations.
That person was his master, Wang Hao!
“What the hell happened to you master?” Fang Lin thought to himself as he realized that something worse was happening now.
From the looks of it, Wang Hao was now a bigshot in the Underworld. As for how he achieved that in just 12 hours, Fang Lin does not know. Aside from that, it was also possible that he was now friends with Siwang Wangzi! That was possible since Siwang Wangzi seems to like Wang Hao. The two of them in cooperation to conquer the Planet Thrae will be no surprise at all.
As for why Wang Hao was invading the Planet Thrae, Fang Lin was not sure of the reason yet. But the only thing that he was sure was that Wang Hao was with the enemy right now!
“Oh? So you dare defy me huh?” A garbled voice rang from inside of the man’s armor. Even though that voice was distorted, Fang Lin was sure that it was Wang Hao’s voice! “You know, you have been irritating me earlier. I think its time I knock some discipline on people like you.”
To Fang Lin’s shock, he saw his master’s killing intent locking in on him!
“What the hell master? Can’t you even recognize that I am your disciple?” Fang Lin cried inwardly as he saw Wang Hao casually walking towards him.
Due to the pressure emitted by Wang Hao, Fang Lin found it difficult to even take a step. With that pressure in place, Fang Lin had no way to escape Wang Hao’s attacks.
“This is a prank, right master?” But Fang Lin’s hopes were dashed as he saw Wang Hao conjuring a sword on both of his hands. Both swords were made up of bones, and they were filed in such a way that their edges were serrated, like the teeth of a shark.
Fang Lin knew getting hit by these swords will be pure agony.
As Fang Lin stared at the murderous Wang Hao approaching towards him, he realized one thing.
Aside from his body disguising as Fang Xiushang, his aura was also similar to Fang Xiushang!
Since Fang Lin had Fang Xiushang on his space pocket, it was just easy for Fang Lin to project Fang Xiushang’s aura as his own.
From the looks of it, his appearance and aura as Fang Xiushang were even able to fool his master! That must be the reason why he was attacking Fang Lin now. Since Wang Hao knows about Fang Lin’s enmity with Fang Xiushang, he must have been using this moment to teach ‘Fang Xiushang’ a lesson.
“This is bad…” Fang Lin thought to himself as he realized that he must do something now, or else he will be a victim of mistaken assault. That will not be good for him.
Fang Lin’s mind went into an overdrive as he thought of the best solution to show Wang Hao that he was Fang Lin.
He scratched off the option to retract Fang Xiushang’s aura. It was because once he does this, everyone in the courtyard will discover that Fang Lin was faking himself as Fang Xiushang.
Fang Lin cannot also just say that he was Fang Lin to Wang Hao. It sounds ridiculous, and it might just serve to piss Wang Hao more.
The only thing that Fang Lin thinks will work was by using a statement that only he and Wang Hao knows. Since only he and Wang Hao knows that statement, that will serve as evidence on Fang Lin’s identity.
By using that way, Fang Lin can tell Wang Hao that he was Fang Lin without alerting others of his identity.
“Ok here goes..” Fang Lin took a deep breath as he said to Wang Hao,
“From what I can see, you’re a master of the Dao of Harem. As a fellow man, why don’t we talk about your Dao?” Fang Lin clearly remembered Wang Hao boasting about the Dao of Harem on one of their ‘private’ talks.
Fang Lin was sure that Wang Hao remembered talking about the Dao of Harem with Fang Lin.
Now that Fang Xiushang was saying something that must only be known by Fang Lin, that will just indicate to Wang Hao that the Fang Xiushang in front of him was actually Fang Lin!
Fang Lin hummed happily to himself as he saw Wang Hao pausing on his tracks. “Don’t be sad Master, I do not blame you for being mistaken in my identity. After all, my disguise skills were just that good. I can still forgive you as long as you do not repeat that fiasco.” He envisioned his Master’s pained expression while he was asking for Fang Lin’s forgiveness.
“Come now master, let’s end this skit now!” Fang Lin’s thoughts were in jumble as he waited for Wang Hao’s reply.
But instead of seeing a relieved or even an embarrassed Wang Hao, what Fang Lin saw was Wang Hao’s killing intent skyrocketing.
If his killing intent earlier was corporeal, the one he was releasing right now was so solid that it even stirred the rocks scattered on his feet.
Fang Lin gulped, clearly aware that Wang Hao was way more pissed right now, much angrier than what Fang Lin could remember.
All these killing intent were entirely focused on Fang Lin. Fang Lin froze in place, not knowing what to do next.
Wang Hao then spoke up, with his distorted voice failing to hide his rage.
“Young man, how do you want to die?” A sliver of light flashed as both of Wang Hao’s sword went slashing down towards Fang Lin!
