The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 266
Chapter 266: Thwarted Plans x3
Fang Lin had the urge to almost cry after what happened. He trembled, as he realized that he had been greatly schemed by this princess!
Princess Lilliana cupped her chin as he tilted her head. She gave Fang Lin a jeering look as she said,
“The Royal Decree was posted this morning. That meant our match can be considered to be under its jurisdiction. You won, so you will be my husband now.”
Princess Lilliana then smiled as she slowly said,
“Come stay with me, my husband!”
Fang Lin realized that he had to run for it. He turned back, as he tried to run away. But before he could do so, he saw a silhouette of a person that made him stop in fear.
That person was Xue’er, and she was currently glaring at Princess Lilliana with anger!
Fang Lin sighed in relief as he realized that she was not angry with him. He immediately went behind her, which managed to gather some laughs from the crowd.
They knew about Fang Lin’s marriage with Xue’er, and some of them were also not happy with it. Now, they will revel on the conflict that was bound to happen.
Xue’er snorted at Fang Lin, indicating that she was also angry at him.
“Why did you defeat her even with that Royal Decree? It seems like you wanted to marry her.” She said with slight hints of accusation dripping from her voice.
“How can I know about the Royal Decree? It seems like they just put it up before I fought that princess. I was set-up….” Fang Lin’s reply was followed by Xue’er’s sigh.
“I know that. Seems like that princess wanted your power that badly.” Xue’er then clenched her fists tightly as she said,
“But it still pisses me that she was actually grabbing my husband in broad daylight!” She suddenly disappeared, appearing in the battle stage.
Her tails were hidden by an illusion, making others see only her human form. Xue’er was currently staring daggers at Princess Lilliana, while Princess Lilliana stared back with mirth on her eyes.
Nobody from the crowd spoke up, since they realized what was happening now.
This was a confrontation of the original wife versus the woman who just tried to grab the husband!
This was a marital issue they were not willing to delve in.
Some even started some bets to see who among the two will win.
The atmosphere between the two women started to heat up. Even the proctor, who was supposed to stop them, stayed quiet as he remembered the quarrels of his wife and his second wife.
The only thought that he had to himself was,
“Let them fight!”
Booming sounds then followed as the two women actually clashed! Xue’er and Princess Lilliana used ferocious attacks against each other, which managed to shake the stage.
The cultivation restriction placed there was removed, making the two women fight at their original strength, which was both half-step Third Stage!
Fang Lin gulped, as he felt some worry for his wife. He wanted to stop them, but he realized that his wife wanted badly to do this. Thus, he could only shut his mouth as he continued watching.
Fang Lin was not sure who will win among the two, with Princess Lilliana having access to some powerful spells while Xue’er still had her two of her bloodline spells on her tails ready to be used.
Fang Lin’s body started to heat up as he felt that the conclusion on this fight was about to arrive.
Both fighters gathered mana on their bodies as they prepared their strongest attacks.
But before they could do so, a powerful presence arrived at the battle stage.
Princess Lilliana, who was about to use her strongest spell, stopped as she looked at the new arrival and rushed to him.
She hugged him deeply as she said,
The person she was hugging was a heavyset man, with his broad body able to receive Princess Lilliana’s robes. His green and gold colored robes dazzled everyone that saw it.
He had a doting expression on his face as he patted Princess Lilliana’s head.
“My lovely daughter, it’s good to see you again.”
This person was the King of the Golden Tree Kingdom!
Fang Lin froze, as he realized that his plans to escape where now nil. With the father here, he will surely have great difficulty in getting away.
“In that case, I can only ask for the help of the Sect Heads here.” Fang Lin thought to himself as he looked at the two Sect Heads of the God Continent Branch.
But then he saw one of the sect heads, the male one, approaching the King of the Golden Tree Kingdom and suddenly hugging him too.
“Congratulations for the betrothal of you daughter, brother.” The male sect head said as he smiled with excitement. “Fang Lin was an extremely talented practitioner, and a good person too. Your daughter will be happy with him.”
“F**k!” Fang Lin now realized that the King of the Golden Tree Kingdom was brothers with one of the Sect Heads of the Immortal God Sect!
“This means the sect cannot even help me…. That means I can only go back to the Immortal Continent before the marriage can happen!”
Fang Lin was sure that since this was a large event, the marriage might happen around 6 months from now. That meant Fang Lin just had enough time to find a way to escape or even nullify the incoming marriage.
He began to calm down as he thought of what countermeasures he can do to avoid the marriage.
“Hahaha! Of course, my daughter will never lose to a useless person!” The King roared in laughter as he gave Fang Lin an appraising look.
Fang Lin’s plans were then shattered for the third time when the King said,
“Young man, your marriage will happen later afternoon, so you better come with me now.”
“Wait what?” Fang Lin was flabbergasted by this. He just defeated Princess Lilliana, and now he was about to marry her in the afternoon? That was way too fast!
“What? Are you thinking my daughter is not worthy of you huh?” Killing intent exploded from the King as his Fifth Stage Cultivation pressure piled up on Fang Lin.
At his strongest power, Fang Lin can fight off Fourth Stage Practitioners. But the King was at the Fifth Stage, which was still too much for Fang Lin. Fang Lin had no choice but to just endure the pressure given to him.
Fang Lin managed to endure this, which just made the King praise him more.
“Splendid! You really are a genius! With you by my daughter’s side, I will have no more worries!” Fang Lin then felt himself jerked through the air as he was brought away by the King!
Fang Lin could not even shout as his whole body was currently restricted. He could only stare at Xue’er mournfully as he tried to reach out with his hands.
Xue’er looked back at Fang Lin tearfully as she tried to reach out with her hands too. But the King moved so fast that Fang Lin disappeared from her vision after just a second.
Princess Lilliana giggled at the distraught Xue’er as she sweetly said,
