The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 221
Chapter 221: Sect Servant
6 months after Fang Yu left for the starry sky.
Immortal God Sect.
A pair of brother and sister stepped beyond the gates of one of the 8 Great Sects of the Immortal Continent. Their eyes shined with anticipation and nervousness as they stared at the crowd forming at the gates.
The girl, which looked around 12 years old, clutched her brother’s hand tightly as she asked him,
“Are we really going to apply for this sect?”
Her brother, who looked to be around 17 years old, had a fond look on his eyes as he patted his younger sister’s head. He had a tight smile as he explained to her.
“You know that with our family situation, the only sect that we can join is the Immortal God Sect. You may not like it, but this is the only choice left that we have.”
“But Brother Lin Feng, the Immortal God Sect is about to be atta- hmph!” The little girls struggled as her brother covered her mouth to prevent her from speaking any further.
“Lin Tong, be careful with what you say!” Lin Feng anxiously said, “No need to state the obvious!”
Lin Tong gave her brother a glare before closing her lips together.
“Sigh.” It was only then that Lin Feng removed his hands. He shook his head, clearly understanding what Lin Tong was feeling.
The Immortal God Sect was the only sect that they can join right now because of their unique circumstances. But now, Lin Tong and even Lin Feng were hesitating to join because of the fact that the Immortal God Sect was sure to be besieged by other powers in the Immortal Continent!
This dilemma started after the tragedy in the Solstice Kingdom 6 months ago.
The Immortal God Sect sent some of their young talents to help the Solstice Kingdom on their plague problem. But what was supposed to be a competition-filled training turned into a live-or-die situation against the Underworld. It was extremely fortunate for everyone that the Underworld decided to withdraw their invasion at the end.
But the aftermath of that invasion was not pleasant. The damages left by the army just amplified the flames of rebellion in the Solstice Kingdom. The Leader of the Raiders of the Night reached the Fifth Stage and used her strength along with her followers to dethrone the current King. This king was currently in captive while his wife which was used as the portal for invasion was unconscious after her portal was forcefully closed when the Underworld Army retreated.
She was brought away by the Immortal Conclave for reasons unknown yet. Though they claim they are doing it to advance the research on space-time magic, many knew that they have unsavoury plans for the dragon.
The rebellion brought the Solstice Kingdom in a period of chaos that continues up until now. It will still take much longer before the new ruler of the Kingdom can consolidate and stabilize the Kingdom.
The Skydome Family, whose territory includes the Solstice Kingdom, blamed the Immortal God Sect for everything that happened related to the invasion. This sentiment was shared by the Tian Ji Empire who demanded sanctions to be placed on the Immortal God Sect.
But that was not the worse that happened.
To the shock of everyone, the Emperor of the Tian Ji Empire was actually found to be heavily injured in the Solstice Kingdom! The Emperor was said to have used a forbidden technique to save someone. Aside from that, the Emperor even used one strike of the Tian Ji Divine Spear.
These high-energy activities brought the Emperor into a state of induced coma. Nobody knows yet on when the Emperor will wake up. They were even not sure if the Emperor will even wake up.
The Tian Ji Empire of course was very unhappy with this. What made this situation worse was the Pan Gu Empire’s declaration of war with the Tian Ji Empire!
There were rumours indicating that the catalyst for the war was the reappearance of the complete version of the Pan Gu Divine Tablet. The signs of its reappearance shows that the Pan Gu Divine Tablet was in fact in the Tian Ji Empire.
Past resentments between the two Empires and the appearance of a long-lost treasure brought the two Empires on the brink of warring each other!
Fortunately, some eyewitnesses claimed seeing the Pan Gu Divine Tablet on the hands of Fang Xiushang, the No.1 Chosen of the Fang Clan.
This news brought the tension between the two Empires at a stalemate as the Pan Gu Empire inquired about the Pan Gu Divine Tablet on Fang Xiushang. To their surprise, Fang Xiushang and the whole Fang Clan remained mum about the matter. It was as if they were not allowed to talk about it to anyone.
The Pan Gu Divine Empire was then left with no choice but to employ the help of a powerful practitioner to perform an augury. The augury led to the discovery that the Pan Gu Divine Tablet was in fact in the Immortal God Sect!
Now, aside from being pissed for being related to the Underworld invasion, the Tian Ji Empire was also blaming the Immortal God Sect for bringing them at the brink of war against the Pan Gu Empire. As for the Pan Gu Empire, they demanded the Immortal God Sect to give up the Pan Gu Divine Tablet. If not, they will take it by force.
These problems alone will be of immense difficulty for the Immortal God Sect already. But what metaphorically sealed the sect’s fate in the coffin was the awakening of the soul of the Planet Thrae!
According to the info, the awakened soul already left this planet into the outer space, along with a disciple of the Immortal God Sect.
It was then that it was discovered that the awakened soul actually came from the Immortal God Sect! As for who the awakened soul was and his/her companion. Only the top brass knows.
Now, everyone believes that the Immortal God Sect was hiding dazzling treasures that can drive anyone crazy.
The greed for their resources combined with the fact that the Immortal God Sect pretty offended the Pan Gu and Tian Ji Empire brought courage to other Great Sects and Families to make a move on the Immortal God Sect.
It was now an accepted fact that the Immortal God Sect will be attacked any day from now. What must have been deterring the attackers were the two Sect Heads ruling the sect.
But experienced practitioners knew that even with this deterrence, an attack will still arrive.
This was the current state of the Immortal God Sect. If Wang Hao and Fang Lin just registered for the Immortal God Sect today, they might have tucked tail and ran away from the sad and depressing atmosphere In the Immortal God Sect.
With all these threats hanging on everyone’s head here, it was no wonder the sect application this year was dismal compared to other years. This led to more negativity festering in the whole Sect.
All these negative feelings were all felt by Lin Feng, slowly affecting him and his sister. He narrowed his eyes as he decided on whether he and his sister should continue applying or not.
He was still busy thinking about it when he suddenly felt a tap on his shoulder. He looked behind him, and Ling Feng saw a man wearing a clean, plain white robe.
Lin Feng observed the man and he saw that he was also wearing bamboo hat and long trousers. The man’s overall attire indicates that this man was a sect servant, whose goal was to serve the requests of everyone in the sect. This includes all the Elders and practitioners in the Immortal God Sect. No matter how weak those who gave the order were, a sect servant has no choice but to follow them.
From what Lin Feng knew, only those who committed grave sin against the Immortal God Sect will be subjected to this humiliating punishment. How long they will stay as a sect servant depends on the severity of their sin and the mood of those who gave out the punishment.
Regardless of that fact, Lin Feng was highly surprised to meet a sect servant right before the selection. He was about to ask him what he wanted when the man beat him to the punch.
“A practitioner here in school saw you earlier during lunch and said that she might have recognized you if I talked to you.”
“Well,” Lin Feng scratched his head as he urged the man to continue. “Can you describe what she looks like? Oh wait before that, can you tell me your name first?”
“With pleasure sir.” The man clasped his hands in front of him as he gave Lin Feng a 45 –degree bow from his waist. He straightened his body before saying,
“I am sect servant Fang Lin.”
