The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 218
Chapter 218: Rebirth Restoration
“Empyrea?” Fang Yu’s eyes glowed with hope as she gazed at Empyrea fervently. “You can really help Tang Li?”
“I can.” Empyrea said slowly. “But why should I help her?”
“Why you should help her? She’s dying for god’s sake!” Fang Yu said shrilly. She started to panic more as time dragged on. The longer Tang Li was left on her own, the faster her death comes. Whatever Empyrea will do must be done on Tang Li immediately.
“Just for that reason?” The former Empyrea who was greeting Fang Yu with a smile was now gone. Her smile disappeared her face changed into a serious once. Now, in front of Fang Yu was the empress who led one of the three Great Empires in the Immortal Continent.
Empyrea’s voice was sharp as she rebuked Fang Yu harshly.
“The technique that I will use will cost me greatly! I could not just use it on anyone wantonly! So what if this baby was the soul of this planet? Even if she dies, this planet will just have a new soul. That means I do not need to save her, since nothing will be lost!”
“You!” Fang Yu stood up and was about to approach Empyrea when her legs buckled under a great pressure. She found it impossible to stand up, as her body could not resist the pressure directed at her. Fang Yu knew what this pressure was.
This pressure came from the power of Empyrea’s Fifth Stage Cultivation!
“Now tell me, why should I save her?” EMpyrea asked for the second time.
Fang Yu suddenly kneeled in front of Empyrea. With her left hand cradling the bloodied Tang Li, she used the right to support herself as he bowed with her forehead pressed to the ground.
Her voice was emotional as she pleaded to Empyrea.
“I’m begging you… please save her! I will do anything just for Tang Li to be saved!”
“Sigh. So you can also let go of your pride.” Empyrea said as a relieved expression appeared on her face. “With this, I have no worries on trusting you.”
“Eh?” Fang Yu asked confusedly. She could only stare at Empyrea who had her hands stretched towards Tang Li.
“Give the baby to me. I will help her now.”
“Okay?” Fang Yu passed the vulnerable looking Tang Li to Empyrea’s waiting arms. Instead of her life declining faster, Tang Li’s body condition stopped on detoriating. It did not worsen, nor it improved. It was as if she was in a… stasis.
While the two were watching what Empyrea will do, Fang Yu wiped her tears and snot as she asked Wang Hao,
“Master, what did Empyrea mean when she did that arrogant thing with me earlier?”
“She just wanted to see if you can let go of your pride for someone in danger.” Wang Hao replied wryly. “You showing her that you will protect your loved ones at the cost of even yourself must have passed her hidden test. If you just gave up on the spot, I doubt she will help you right now.”
“….” Fang Yu did not expect that even at the life-and-death situation of Tang Li, Fang Yu was still put into the test!
Both Fang Yu and Wang Hao stared at Empyrea as they waited to see her special technique. Upon seeing the gazes given to her, Empyrea sighed as she pointed her finger to Fang Yu and Wang Hao.
A thick beam of divine sense entered the minds of Fang Yu and Fang Lin, which gave them the information on what Empyrea will do.
They could only gape their mouths open in shock when they deciphered the divine sense.
At that moment, what Fang Yu could only think was,
“Holy s**t!” The prediction of the Grand Elder about Empyrea was right!
When the Grand Elder and Fang Yu met with the Eight Patriarchs and Empyrea, he declared that he had a prophecy regarding Empyrea.
The Grand Elder prophesized that Empyrea has to be pregnant within a week from that day to save the Tian Ji Empire from destruction!
As for what disaster that was, Fang Yu was not sure yet. But he was damn sure that the information given to her and Wang Hao by Empyrea talks about the pregnancy part.
According to the information given to her, there was a heavenly defying ability that came from Empyrea’s clan. Because of its strict requirements, only Empyrea can use this ability as of now.
This ability was called Rebirth Restoration!
The use of this ability was actually simple. Empyrea can use Rebirth Restoration to anyone gravely injured or those about to die and help them recover perfectly!
But there’s a catch in that recovery.
Those who were helped by Rebirth Restoration will actually be babies!
The reason for that were the steps that will be used by Empyrea to perform Rebirth Restoration.
Once Empyrea has her target for the ability, she will immediately apply the ability on that person. The first thing that will happen was that the person’s age and body will regresss back to that of an embryo. Once this was done, the embryo will be planted inside Empyrea’s womb and will be grown there.
In short, Empyrea will be pregnant of the person she will help.
With the power of the ability, instead of nine months, the embryo inside Empyrea will turn into a nine-month fetus in just seconds! Part of that speedy growth was the fact that that person had been a child before. There was no problem speeding up that process since it already happened before.
Once the embryo was already a nine-month fetus, what happens naturally next was the childbirth. After the childbirth, the remaining energy from Empyrea will accelerate the aging of the child until the child becomes a 2-year old baby.
This marks the end of the ability.
A person that was at the brink of death will be a perfectly fine, healthy baby once applied with the Restoration Rebirth!
This method of course has some serious drawbacks.
It can only be used once.
Can only be used on a gravely injured or a dying person.
The life energy needed for Rebirth Restoration was of massive amounts. If it was insufficient, the caster of the ability and the target will die.
Once the target became a 2-year old baby, all their abilities and memories will be sealed. Only when that baby reaches the original age of its original form that they will be unsealed.
From these restrictions, once can see that this ability must only be used when it was extremely necessary! And the older the target, the more disadvantaged they will be since they will need longer time to recover their lost memories and skills!
That period between the birth and the original age will be an uncertain one that might even change the personality of the target!
But Tang Li had no problems with these restrictions! Since she was around 2 years-old, once she was reborn by Empyrea, she will easily regain her skills and memories!
Now, Empyrea’s only worry was the life energy consumption.
Empyrea gave a look to Fang Yu and Wang Hao, who immediately understood what she wanted. Both of them supplied Empyrea with the life energy that she badly needed.
Minutes passed by, and Empyrea took a deep breath as she activated Rebirth Restoration.
Tang Li was suddenly covered by a green cocoon that shrinked in size. It continued shrinking until it was about the size of a singular cell. Of course, only Wang Hao and Empyrea can see it. Fang Yu just stood there as she waited for the results.
The green cocoon then let out a glow that even Fang Yu can see as it collided against Empyrea’s lower abdomen. It went past her clothes and skin, only stopping once it was inside her reproductive organs.
Empyrea then grimaced as her stomach suddenly ballooned in size, reaching its largest state after just 9 seconds. Once this was done, she gave an angry, embarrassed look to Fang Yu and Wang Hao.
Once the two idiots realized what will happen next, they turned around with their backs facing Empyrea.
They could only use their ears to ‘see’ what was happening behind them.
They could hear Empyrea’s deep grunts as she heaved for air. They could hear her sharp exhales as her hands squirmed on the floor. They could even hear the spasming of her abdominal muscles as she released the baggage stored inside her.
This uncomfortable scene lasted for a minute before they heard the crying of a child.
They turned around, and they saw Empyrea, with her attire fully fixed, cradling the newborn Tang Li.
The newborn Tang LI’s cries did not last as the remaining life energy accelerated her until her original age.
“…'” Silence prevailed the room as they awaited on Tang Li’s condition. They stared at Tang Li, who suddenly opened her eyes.
When she saw Fang Yu, she immediately flew to her as she shouted,
“Tang Li!” Fang Yu and Fang Lin cried once more when they saw that Tang Li was back to her vibrant self. Fang Yu hugged her tightly, and she even allowed Tang Li to play with her twin peaks.
Empyrea leaned weakly against the wall, taking deep breaths as she tried to meditate to recover herself. She then saw Wang Hao giving her a thumb-up sign as he said,
“Out of all the things I have seen in my life, this is definitely the weirdest one.”
