The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 258
Chapter 258: Fragile Space, Supple Time
Fang Lin sighed as he decided to go into an offensive stance. He knew that he could not let Orias impose his dominance anymore. Letting him do that will just make him gain the initiative in this fight.
“Time to use my 4th Dual Mark!” Fang Lin muttered to himself as he gathered his Origin Energy on the ⏳ and ● symbols.
They both left his hands as they started to fuse together. When Orias saw this, his eyes narrowed, as he seemed to have felt danger coming from that fusion.
Fang Lin grinned as he realized his current breakthrough strengthened his Dual Marks.
If it was before, the power of Fang Lin’s Dual Marks will be just backed up by his Early Second Stage Cultivation.
But after he met his Second Master, Fang Lin’s Dual Marks were now backed up by his 12 Essence Cores and his Peak Second Stage Cultivation!
Such kind of enhancement propelled his Dual Marks’ power to the next level!
The surroundings rumbled as a large scythe appeared in Fang Lin’s hands.
The scythe’s handle was about 3 meters long, with its blade around a meter in length. It looked sinister, with countless symbols running across the blade.
This was the manifestation of his 4th Dual Mark, the FRAGILE SPACE, SUPPLE TIME SCYTHE!
Its name already says it all. This scythe of Fang Lin can tear through space like its fragile and mold time like its supple.
“Take this!” Fang Lin bellowed as he sent the scythe hacking down. It immediately created an invisible slash that threaded through space like tofu!
Orias tried to lock the path of the invisible slash, but he found out that his void lock was shredded by the slash!
“You can’t stop this attack, since the space aspect of my scythe focuses on making attacks that destroys the space!” Fang Lin said as he saw the invisible slash almost bearing upon Orias!
Right now, Fang Lin can only summon one thin slash to damage the space. This slash was as thin as a hair, and as fast as the speed of sound.
One thin slash might sound underwhelming, but if his control over his Dual Marks gets stronger, he can actually create large holes through space itself with his scythe!
Orias grimaced as he realized he had no way on stopping the attack. All of his Void special abilities were all focused on restricting the opponent’s attacks. As for his offense, it only relies on his created weapons.
Since that invisible slash can ignore his void restrictions, Orias had no choice but to go on offensive too.
“Since I am going to be hit by your attack, let me hit you with my attack too!” Orias bellowed as he used the strongest attack he could muster right now.
Orias raised his right hand slowly, forming a shape of a blade. He then sent is slashing down, with Fang Lin on its general direction.
When Fang Lin’s attack hit Orias, Fang Lin also received Orias’ attack.
“Ugh! Both of them grunted at the same time, as Orias’ right arm and Fang Lin’s left arm were both severed by their attacks.
Fang Lin’s space slash was able to cleanly sever Orias’ right arm.
As for Orias’ Void Slash, this attack was able to create a thin void in space instantaneously. This empty space included the area between Fang Lin’s left shoulder joint. Because of this, Fang Lin’s left arm naturally separated with his shoulder since their connection was now replaced with empty space.
Both of them grunted in pain as they clutched the stumps of their respective shoulders.
“How about that Fang Lin?” Orias grimaced as he used his remaining left arm to summon more swords. “Can you still fight?”
“Of course I can!” Fang Lin said as he suddenly rotated his scythe in a counterclockwise motion.
Orias widened his eyes as he realized that this type of rotation looked like as if someone was making the hands of a clock rotate backwards!
“S**t! He’s using a time ability right now!” Orias tried to obstruct Fang Lin, but his efforts were sadly futile.
If the space aspect of Fang Lin’s Fragile Space, Supple Time Scythe was focused on offense, its time aspect was focused on Fang Lin’s body condition.
Depending on how Fang Lin can activate it, he can either reverse or forward the status effect on his body like injury or poisoning.
Fang Lin was able to do this by manipulating his own body’s Time. As long as he was conscious, Fang Lin can reverse the injuries given to him and make it disappear.
The spectators could only watch silently as they saw Orias’ injury and Fang Lin’s arm reattached to Fang Lin’s shoulder!
Tear through space, and reverse bodily damage, that’s the power of his Fragile Space, Supple Time Scythe!
Of course, there is still a limit on what injuries Fang Lin can reverse right now.
As of now, the worst injury that Fang Lin can reverse were amputated limbs. As for his dantian and soul, Fang Lin’s current power cannot yet reverse any damages that might be inflicted on it.
And of course, the number of times Fang Lin can reverse his injuries were also limited. At his best condition, Fang Lin can only use it thrice.
But with this current condition, Fang Lin had no more Origin Energy left!
This absence of Origin Energy meant that Fang Lin cannot use any abilities of his Dual Marks. That meant that if Fang Lin was injured once more, he cannot use Supple Time to reverse his injuries.
The only thing Fang Lin can do was to act confident and make it look like he can still fight back. He can only wish that Orias will not see through his façade.
Wang Hao, who saw Fang Lin using his newly obtained power, could only smile wryly as he realized his disciple is now an OP character!
“Fang Lin, you have been through a lot, but now I baptize you as one of US.” Wang Hao muttered as he felt satisfaction upon seeing Fang Lin this triumphant.
As for Orias, he shook his head sadly as he realized Fang Lin’s advantage. Even though Orias was suspicious if Fang Lin could still fight and use those godly abilities of his, Orias decided to not risk it.
After all, this match was not a fight to the death. There’s no need to bring this match to the more fatal part.
“You are one of the most talented practitioners I met Fang Lin.” Orias said with a smile. “Perhaps only the Demon of the Forsaken Ones had a greater talent than you. With that kind of talent, I will not feel ashamed to declare that this match is my loss.”
“……” The Djinns who were spectating the match did not say anything, for they also witnessed the power shown by Fang Lin.
This guy was only at the peak Second Stage, yet he had somehow obtained the abilities of various Divine Beasts. What’s more intriguing was that Fang Lin can use these abilities seamlessly and simultaneously!
He also had that martial aura that weakened their advantage over him!
But what made them highly wary of Fang Lin was that scythe that he summoned that effectively ended the match.
Even Orias was not able to withstand a move from it!
“A Genius unrivalled in the Universe!” The Djinns all thought to themselves. They trembled, as they realized that with the help of Wang Hao and Fang Lin, their long thought-out plan might actually succeed!
“Fellow Daoist…” Orias said smilingly to Wang Hao as he picked up his arm from the floor. Orias’ arm let out a squeak as it slowly reattached itself to Orias’ shoulder.
From the looks of it, it might take while before his arm will be completely reattached.
“…. About the meeting that we wanted to talk about, can we do it right now?” Orias said urgently as the three Djinns behind him walked until they were beside him.
“Fine. But won’t you let the remaining two Djinns fight Fang Lin?” Wang Hao asked as he pointed to Buer and Haborym. “They seem ready to fight.”
“They don’t need to.” Orias said softly. “Fang Lin was able to prove that he can fight against Fourth Stage Practitioners with his Peak Second Stage Cultivation Base. Further fighting will not be needed.”
Behind Wang Hao, Fang Lin nodded his head rapidly, indicating that he was fine with the matches ending.
After confirming their mutual desire to end the matches, Wang Hao shrugged his shoulders as he looked at Genie.
“Dispel your Mist Room then.”
Genie gave a resigned sigh as she removed her Mist Room.
Wang Hao’s view changed, as he was now floating above the surface of the planet.
With them back at the planet, Wang Hao, Fang Lin and Genie flew while beckoning the 4 Djinns to follow them.
He and the others then went inside the cave that Wang Hao used earlier. Once they were inside, Wang Hao swiveled his head to look at Orias.
Wang Hao smirked a little before saying,
“Now then, tell us your story.”
