The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 220
Chapter 220: Goodbye
“…” Fang Lin chose to be quiet at that moment. Even though he had countless questions for the spacefarer, like if she was actually Venomshade’s missing sister or how can she use technology in a cultivation, he knew that they had a more important matter to discuss.
Like on her demand to bring Tang Li with her.
“Are you qualified to do that?” Fang Yu snarled as she hugged Tang Li tighter. Tang Li giggled as she used this opportunity to grope her Sis more. Fang Yu ignored this as she concentrated her gaze to the spacefarer.
The spacefarer was unperturbed by Fang Yu’s pointed gaze as she replied fluently. “You can say the reason I am doing this was related to my backstory.”
“Your backstory? Hmph, do tell us that then.” Fang Yu replied challengingly. “Then we will see if your so called ‘reason’ holds water in here.”
The spacefarer showed no sign of assent as she started to speak. “You can say I was originally an inhabitant of this planet. One day, I discovered an extremely powerful inheritance that allowed me to travel the deep vast space. I met varying creatures and new adventures at my travels.”
Fang Yu and the others stared at the spacefarer as she continued talking. “Due to my connections in this planet, there were some individuals that can communicate with me even when I was in space. The Grand Elder was one of those people. As for how I received his message, I received it one year ago during one of my swing-by with a black hole.”
“In that message, the Grand Elder told me of his request. He wanted me to go to this planet at this day and fetch a person named Tang Li. He also told me that this Tang Li was his daughter and was the soul of this planet. He promised to give me some good stuff in return for my service. The offers he gave me were so good that I had no choice but to comply with his requests.”
“That’s it?” Fang Yu raised her eyebrows as she shielded Tang Li from the spacefarer’s intrusive gaze.
“……..” Wang Hao and his companions stared at each other as they thought to themselves, “That explanation was way too short!”
“Ehem.” Wang Hao coughed as he tried to talk to the spacefarer. “You know, astrogirl, we cannot just allow you to do that. Who knows, you might just be coveting Tang Li right now. Even though you might actually know the Grand Elder, you could have just been using his name to make you claims more credible.”
“Astrogirl?” Fang Yu cringed as he heard that name. The spacefarer seemed to share the same sentiments with Fang Yu as she displayed an expression of displeasure. That name clearly struck a chord with her.
She gave Wang Hao an annoyed look as she gave her reply.
“First, my name is not astrogirl. You should call me by my Cosmic Title, which is Andromeda. Please refrain from calling me with that blasted nickname or yours.”
“Yes, yes.” Wang Hao readily nodded, looking quite insincere. Andromeda’s eyes twitched upon seeing this. Fang Yu praised her ability to control her emotions as Andromeda’s tone stayed flat as she continued talking.
“If you want proof on the credibility of my demand, then come see this.” Andromeda opened her right palm, and a figure made of light, about 6 inches in height appeared.
Wang Hao’s eyes narrowed upon seeing this. He knew that this thing in front of him was.
Fang Lin and the others became more confused when they saw the hologram. First, Andromeda’s high-tech suit. Now, she can even create a hologram in this cultivation planet! This really is a mystery.
“As I said, I can do this because of an inheritance.” Andromeda said as the figure in the hologram started to move. Fang Yu knew fully well who the figure in the hologram was. It was the Grand Elder.
“Hello everyone!” The hologram Grand Elder said merrily. His hologram form was slightly flickering as he continued talking. “The hologram you are seeing right now was actually a recorded message that I sent a year ago with respect to your time along with my request to Andromeda. I sent it here as a way to convince you, Fang Yu, that Andromeda can be trusted.”
“Hiss….” Wang Hao could hardly conceal his surprise upon hearing what the hologram Grand Elder said.
Accoding to the Grand Elder, this hologram message was made a year ago. At that time, Fang Lin had not even met Wang Hao, let alone brought at the Immortal God Sect! Even his other body Fang Yu was not yet existing at that time!
Then how can this hologram from a year ago talk as if Fang Yu already exists?
“Hahaha, if you are thinking on how I can say the name Fang Yu, it was because of my high-class skills to see the future!”
“You old fogey, most of your predictions came from your acid trips!” Fang Yu thought as she waited for hologram Grand Elder to continue talking.
“If you received this message, then that means Tang Li had already awakened as the soul of Planet Thrae. I….. do not actually know what will happen at this moment. So I do not know any of the circumstances that will happen one year after I send this message.”
“The only thing that I knew that after Tang Li awakens her soul, most of the powerhouses at this planet will chase after her. No matter where she is when she awakens, whether at the Immortal God Sect or any other parts of this planet, somebody will come to my daughter with evil intentions.”
The hologram Grand Elder’s face turned emotional as he said,
“Based on my predictions, the only way that Tang Li will be safe was if she leaves this planet. It was then that I remembered that I have a communication with Andromeda. I used that connection to request her to fetch Tang Li into the outer space.”
“Maybe you are thinking, why don’t I or my wife bring Tang Li to leave this planet? It was because I found out that if Tang Li was brought away by someone from the older generation, she will be doomed to die. That means….. I or my wife could not accompany her.” It was plain obvious that the Grand Elder was pissed at this moment.
After all, the only way for his lovely daughter to survive was to leave this planet. Not only that, but her own parents could not accompany her since it will just bring her into more danger!
The Grand Elder gritted his teeth as he said,
“Only those at the current generation are allowed to join Tang Li. But from all of them, those that I can trust with my daughter’s safety can be counted with my right hand. Andromeda is one of them. That was the main reason that I chose her to fetch my daughter.”
“And you, Fang Yu, was the second person that I trust.” To everyone’s surprise, the hologram of the Grand Elder, one of the most respected leader in the Immortal God Sect, someone that can be called as powerhouse actually bowed in front of Fang Yu! His voice was trembling as he said,
“Miss Fang Yu, please join my daughter Tang Li on her voyage into the cosmos! I knew that Tang Li will be extremely attached to you in the future. As such, she needs someone like you to be with her and Andromeda. Only you can save Tang Li from the possible loneliness at the outer space.”
“Besides,” The Grand Elder said with a wink, “I saw you giving Tang Li some high quality milk.”
“Hahaha! That’s all that I can say for now. Once you received this message, immediately go with Andromeda to her space ship. I reckon that some of those who covet Tang Li will be arriving any moment now. You must hurry! Bye!” The hologram died out as the smiling, but tear-stricken face of the Grand Elder remained imprinted on their minds.
“So that old fogey can actually cry for his daughter huh? How cute.” Fang Yu mumbled as pinched Tang Li’s cheeks. Tang Li, who heard everything that the Grand Elder said, pouted sadly as she said,
“Sis, are we going bye-bye?”
“Muuuu… Tang Li doesh not want to leave!” Tang Li said with tears spilling out of her eyes. “She gave Fang Yu the cutest look that she could muster as he said,
“I….” Fang Yu’s mental defences crumbled entirely at Tang Li’s overbearing attack. She was about to agree to her when they felt a series of malevolent auras approaching their place.
Wang Hao’s eyes narrowed as he shouted out,
“Some Fifth Stage Practitioners are coming!”
Even with the Underworld Suppressing Formation removed, the over-all power of Fang Lin’s team was no match to that of these incoming Fourth Stage Practitioners. Wang Hao could survive their attacks, but there was no guarantee that the others will be safe. Fang Yu was aware of this fact. There will be no chance of them making it out whole.
She then let out a sigh as she let Tang Li inhale a sleeping medicine.
One whiff, and Tang Li was back in her fluffy dreamland.
“Master…. This is not really a goodbye right?” Fang Yu said as she adjusted the sleeping Tang Li in her arms. “With the nature of my ability, I can switch with Fang Lin and meet you and Master Xiao Ya!”
Wang Hao nodded, knowing that Fang Yu’s Duality Godly Divine Beast Bloodline was of great convenience here.
No matter how far Fang Yu was, she can still switch places with Fang Lin! That means Wang Hao, Xiao Ya and Fang Yu’s friends can still see Fang Yu if needed!
“Are you sure about this now?” Wang Hao asked to Fang Yu gravely. “You know, travelling in space can be fun… and also dangerous. Can you take responsibility for yours and Tang Li’s well-being?”
“Good! You have grown up!” Wang Hao said as he ruffled Fang Yu’s head. He gave an apologetic look to Fang Yu as he said, “Due to the time constraints, I and your master Xiao Ya will just give some life-saving items to you through Fang Lin. Just use your abilities to transfer those items from Fang Lin to you.”
Wang Hao then gave a smile to Fang Yu while she was strapping herself to Andromeda. According to Andromeda, this was the fastest way that they can reach her ship before the baddies arrived. Fang Yu has no choice but to agree with this. As for Tang Li, she was kept first inside Fang Yu’s storage. She will only be let out once they are in Andromeda’s ship.
Andromeda’s suit let out its signature roar as it rushed towards the wide sky. Fang Yu could only feel a strange melancholic feeling as she saw the land beneath her turning smaller and smaller. In the distance, he saw some figures with powerful auras staring up at them. They tried to catch up, but they were hindered by a big, black spear.
Half a minute passed by, and Fang Yu saw the entirety of the Planet Thrae laid in front of her. The only thing she can say as she saw her home planet where she was born was,
