The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 227
Chapter 227: Where is the magic lamp?
“Devourer of the Planets?” Fang Yu’s eyebrows rose after hearing the hideous creature say that word. And from the looks of it, the creature was pertaining his greetings to Tang Li!
Tang Li, who was just freshly out of the storage, looked at the creature kowtowing in front of her. Instead of getting scared, Tang Li looked smug as she talked to the creature.
“Bad! Bad! Bad! You attacked Sis! Bad Dog!”
“You call that thing a dog?” Fang Yu thought to herself as the creature started trembling. It did not seem to be even offended when it was called a dog. Instead, its head sank lower as it asked Tang Li for her forgiveness.
“Oh exalted one, forgive thy servant! I shall do anything for you! If you want me to die, I will kill myself personally!” The creature then formed a claw with its arms that it used to stab itself!
“Shtop!” Tang Li said, effectively halting the creature’s action. She then proceeded to pat Fang Yu’s head while saying,
“Apologize to Sis!”
The creature hurriedly faced Fang Yu as it groveled at her feet. It gave Fang Yu the most humble look that it can give. Fang Yu knew that with a tongue as smooth at this creature’s she will surely receive some high-quality praise.
“Yeah, praise me more!” Fang Yu thought to herself smugly.
But what she got was a praise that was also not a praise.
“Forgive me, oh Great Milkmaid of the Devourer of the Planets. I besmirched your peaceful trip with my impudence. I really regret doing that oh Great Milkmaid.”
Fang Yu’s breath hitched after hearing that.
Fang Yu of course knew what a milkmaid meant. A milkmaid was someone hired to feed breastmilk to a baby.
From what the creature said, it was implying that Fang Yu feeds Tang Li milk.
Well, that was true, since Fang Yu usually feeds Tang Li at least once a day with milk. That automatically makes her a milkmaid. But of course, someone like Fang Yu will not be happy to be called like that.
“You f**king called me a Milkmaid? Do you really have a deathwish huh?” Fang Yu’s killing intent exploded further after hearing that apology.
“Ah forgive me! I just felt your vitality flowing on the Great Devourer’s body. The only way that can be transferred was by b**astfeeding!” The creature said as it tried to placate Fang Yu. “If you hate that name, then I shall do my best to not reveal your status as a milkmaid!”
“….” Fang Yu was rendered speechless by this creature. How can she even refute about the claim that she was a milkmaid when she clearly was one?’
“Fine. You shut your filthy mouth.” Fang Yu said coldly. “Now, let me ask you: What do you mean with Tang Li being a Devourer of the Planets?”
“Eh, you do not know her great mission?” The creature tilted its head as it fearfully looked at Tang Li. Its features then brightened as it realized something. “Then this great one in front of me must be a new one!”
“Speak. And you better swear an oath with your soul.”
“Ok. I swear with my soul that all I say was no falsehood. If I lie, the universe will smite my souls with millions of bolts!” The creature then spun a narrative that lasted for 3 hours. It managed to make its story as long-winded as possible, using repetitive sentences and superficial adjectives to increase the word count. If Wang Hao was here, he might say that this creature was orally reciting a rushed webnovel.
By the end of this boring narrative Tang Li was already fast asleep on Fang Yu’s head while Fang Yu was close to dozing off. She got cleared from her stupor when she did not hear the creature speaking.
“Ah. So that’s it?” Fang Yu shook her head as she tried to look regal. “That was… enlightening.” Of course Fang Yu already zoned out just an hour after the creature started speaking, She had no idea what it said for the remaining time.
“Now that you gave me the long version, tell me the short version.” Fang Yu said shamelessly. “This can be considered as part of your punishment. Now tell that narrative to me as short as possible.”
Now, it only took 10 minutes for the creature to tell the gist of Tang Li’s situation. With that, Fang Yu was able to mentally compile what the creature said.
The creature said that beings like Tang Li who were in a half-awakened soul state will be considered as devourer of the planets. Because their souls were now interrupted in the awakening state, their path to evolve as a planet was now cut off. Their souls were now fundamentally changed by the interruption.
That means Tang Li could not get stronger through the conventional method of planet cultivation. She had to do something else to get stronger.
Now, for someone like Tang Li to evolve, she had to consume more and more planet souls. Unlike a normal planet who only had to wait until it soul was strong enough, Tang Li could not do that.
Her soul could not evolve naturally anymore due to the interruption of her awakening. It can only get stronger by forcefully devouring other planetary souls.
The creature also added that at the higher stages, Devourers will gain the ability to also devour the planet body itself, the stars and other heavenly bodies.
As for how many Devourers were there, they were extremely rare, since most of those that were interrupted during a soul awakening usually dies quickly. Tang Li was extremely lucky to survive that ordeal.
Fang Yu was stunned silly by what she heard. She looked at the cute Tang Li who was dozing off peacefully on her head. She could not believe that she was a being that can bring havoc to countless civilizations!
She then remembered that what Andromeda told her about Tang Li’s condition was different from what the creature said.
“Why did Agromeda hid this information about the devourers to me? Is she wary about my stance? Or is she interested on Tang Li?” Fang Yu realized that Andromeda was turning more and more unfathomable at the moment.
“But since the Grand Elder said that she could be trusted, I guess I just have to talk to her later.” Fang Yu thought as she gave the creature a vicious look.
“Now that you’ve said your piece, tell me, what are you and what are you doing here?”
“….” The creature looked at her fearfully pointing at its lips. Fang Yu sighed, immediately realizing that the creature was bound in some way. The creature must have been not allowed to talk about its mission and itself. That means Fang Yu still had no knowledge on what was happening to her.
“Yeah, I see that you are not allowed to talk. But are you allowed to fail this mission?”
The creature frowned as it said, “Yeah I can, but it must be a command of one of the Great Ones.”
“Then how about me, the Mi-mi-mi-milkmaid of the Devourer? Is my status enough to make you scram?” Fang Yu replied quickly.
“Yes yes yes. Your grace and nobility is enough your Highness.”
“Hmph. Now then, return me from where I came from and you will scram, never to go back on that planet!” Fang Yu knew that with the creature’s lips sealed, she had no way to know on how to leave this place. Thus, she can only make this creature let her out.
But before the creature could do what it was told to, Fang Yu suddenly grinned as she thought of something. She looked at the creature while asking,
“Hey, is there no problem if I force you to come with us? Of course I will make you swear an oath to not hurt anybody. Is that allowed?” Fang Yu knew that with the reverence shown by this creature, it will surely follow Tang LI and Fang Yu’s command even without an oath. She just used an oath to make sure.
Beside, Fang Yu realized that she could not allow this creature to leave. If she did, this creature will surely spread the information about Tang Li being a devourer. Fang Yu does not need to know history to realize that some will surely come hunting Tang Li down if her status as a Devourer was discovered.
Thus, Fang Yu had no choice but to bring the creature with her.
“There’s no problem oh great one! I shall gladly follow you and the Great Devourer to the ends of the Universe!” The creature said with a zeal. “I shall do my best to serve you both!”
Fang Yu shivered, realizing that she must fix this creature’s speech patterns. She was happy that it was loyal, but she cannot allow it to make speeches like this! Only Wang Hao might be happy being praised like this everyday.
Oh, and she also have to find a way to make it less… scary.
“Then its settled then. You are joining us.” Fang Yu said with a sigh. She does not know if she got a gain or a loss at this moment. “Now, do your thing and bring us from where I originally was.”
“Yes! Genie does as you wish!” The room then rumbled as it faded away into obscurity, A bright light covered Fang Yu, forcing her to close her eyes.
She opened it after a minute, and she saw that she was back where she came from.
She looked around, realizing that Andromeda was not here. She must have gone somewhere, trying to look for Fang Yu and Tang Li. As for Tang Li she was still on Fang Yu’s head.
Fang Yu then gave an incredulous look to the creature who called itself Genie.
“Hey, are you really called Genie?”
“Yes, t’was lowly one’s name.”
“Does that mean you can grant me three wishes? Come grant my first wish! I wish to have a harem of mature, smoking hot women hugging me right now!”
