The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 282
Chapter 282: Turning Point
Both Fang Lin and Wang Hao did not talk to each other as Wang Hao teleported them back beside the wormhole. There, they saw the pale and panicking Xiao Ya pacing around the area.
Judging from the look on her face, she definitely saw the death of Fang Lin and the disciples. It was also possible that she saw the sudden appearance of Wang Hao and him suddenly teleporting away.
That was why there was shock on her face when she saw Fang Lin alive in front of her.
“You’re… alive?” Xiao Ya tremblingly asked as she slowly approached Fang Lin. She caressed his cheeks to make sure that what she was seeing was real. “You did not die?”
“Sigh.” Wang Hao who was in the background muttered as he raised his hands.
“I guess I can show you this.” Wang Hao then flicked a glowing ball towards Xiao Ya. Xiao Ya let it enter her head, allowing her to see what happened earlier.
She saw Wang Hao keeping the souls of the dead disciples into a token, as well as the temporary resurrection that was done to Fang Lin.
She also heard the talks about the trial and the chance for the disciples to be revived if Wang Hao wins the said trial.
And last but not the least, she also saw Fang Lin wanting to cut ties with Wang Hao after the trial.
The awkward silence that followed was broken by Fang Lin who asked Wang Hao,
“Wang Hao, after you arrived from the Underworld, you told me everything that happened to you there. You also told me before that you were supposed to attend that final trial 10 years from now. Why did it suddenly become in just 4 days?”
Wang Hao shivered as he heard Fang Lin’s way of calling him. He did not call him ‘Master’, he just called Wang Hao by his name, which meant he’s acting like they were just acquaintances now.
“From what I heard, there was an augury performed by some oracles in the Underworld. There, they determined that there will be a calamity arriving in the Underworld in the near future. So the organizers decided to make the trial happen as early as possible…”
“Fine.” Fang Lin muttered, ignoring Wang Hao once more. Wang Hao shook his head, realizing that Fang Lin seemed to want to stay like this until the trial.
As for Xiao Ya, she stayed quiet and did not try to stop Wang Hao and Fang Lin’s resurrection plan.
Even she, an Immortal, will not be able to bring dead people back to life. Only the Yama who supervises the Underworld Realm will be the one who can do a permanent resurrection.
That means only Wang Hao’s plan was the best way to resurrect those dead disciples. Xiao Ya was not that stupid to stop them from using the best solution on this situation.
“Fang Lin….” Xiao Ya looked at Fang Lin with tears pooling her eyes. “I…”
“I know master.” Fang Lin replied curtly. “You were just ‘trapped’ by your pleasures earlier that you were not able to save us, right?”
“Ugh!” Xiao Ya grunted as she stepped back. Fang Lin’s words directly hit her heart.
The real reason she wanted to wrestle Scarlet on the bed was because she wanted to ‘taste’ her once more. She just added the dilemma of the King’s death to make her actions with Scarlet more convincing.
After all, how could she expect that Scarlet herself will delay Xiao Ya from saving the disciples from Fajardo? That was a betrayal that Xiao Ya will not be able to forget.
Xiao Ya could still remember what Scarlet said after Xiao Ya failed to save the disciples
“You killed my lover’s brother… You should have known his grief now…. Because of that, we decided to punish you for that.”
Astonishingly, Scarlet was actually Fajardo’s lover!
“Does that mean… you only agreed to be in the bed with me just to delay me?” Xiao Ya muttered as she felt betrayed in many ways.
“When you arrived earlier, my Fajardo had felt suspicion about your statements. That was why I decided to keep you occupied while Fajardo investigates the truth.”
“If his brother was alive, then all will be well. But if he’s dead, Fajardo will kill all the Immortal Continent Branch disciples that were here. And I will be the one to stop you from saving them.”
“Boom!” The surroundings started to tremble as Xiao Ya revealed her full anger. She took deep breaths as rage covered her mind.
Guilt, grief, anger, sadness and remorse mixed inside her as she said,
“You already know what you and your lover’s actions mean right?”
“Yes.” Scarlet stood up as she fixed her clothes.
Scarlet and Xiao Ya then stared at each other with killing intent as they both said,
“THIS MEANS WAR!!!”
Surprisingly, the two branches of the Immortal God Sect will wage war against each other! This was the first time that it will happen!
“Now then, I suggest that you leave.” Scarlet sneered at the pale Xiao Ya. “You still have a lot to say to the Immortal Continent Branch about the death of their precious disciples….”
“Gh!” Xiao Ya grunted as blood trickled out of her mouth. The guilt and remorse that she was feeling managed to even shake her Immortal Foundation!
This resulted in some injuries that even an Immortal like her could not suppress.
Scarlet’s smile widened upon seeing Xiao Ya’s situation. She laughed derisively as she said,
“You better start scouring near the wormhole for their remains. Fajardo’s attack can sometimes… cause a wipeout! Hahaha!”
Xiao Ya wiped away the blood on her lips as she left the sect towards the wormhole. That was the moment that she met Fang Lin and Wang Hao.
“Sigh.” Fang Lin saw that Xiao Ya was extremely hurt by the current events. He decided to forgive her a just a little, seeing her sincere concern for the disciples.
She was so different from Fang Lin’s other master…..
“Hm?” Fang Lin raised his eyebrows in panic as he remembered about his storage. He panicked as he realized that his storage might have been broken because of Fajardo’s attacks!
That will be bad, since his storage had some very important stuff! Especially Princess Lilliana, who was held captive inside his storage!
Wang Hao saw and realized what Fang Lin was panicking for. He looked at Fang Lin hesitantly as he said with his divine sense,
“Do not worry about your storage ring. I manipulated it with the Space-Time Gyroscope, so it will not be destroyed by a mere half-Step God. It’s just around here.” Wang Hao extended his hands to a certain direction, and from there, Fang Lin saw his storage ring rushing towards them.
Fang Lin caught it, and when he inspected it, he saw that nothing has been changed. Princess Lilliana was still there, bound tightly by Xiao Ya’s seal. He wore it once more, with him not thanking Wang Hao.
Wang Hao did not dare to complain after seeing this.
Fang Lin’s mind was then filled with the thoughts related to him cutting ties with Wang Hao.
If it was before he met the old man in the tablet, Fang Lin would have not attempted to cut ties with Wang Hao.
But when he made the old man in the tablet as his Second Master, Fang Lin was able to gather courage to cut ties with Wang Hao.
After all, the old man can teach Fang Lin things that Wang Hao could not. And the best part of it was that the old man will be powerless to make things difficult to Fang Lin!
The old man was stuck in the tablet, so he cannot scheme and wreak havoc the way Wang Hao did.
One can even say that meeting the old man was a really great blessing to Fang Lin.
“So, what will you do now master?” Fang Lin asked to Xiao Ya pointedly. “As you might know, I and Wang Hao will go at this trial in 4 days’ time. That means we should finish this war in that time period, because it might take us a long time to come back from the trial.”
“Of course we will go to war!” Xiao Ya said with resolution. “These bastards dare to scheme against us? Then we will make them pay back!”
Fang Lin nodded vigorously, as he also felt the same way as Xiao Ya. The death of his fellow disciples ignited a fire inside him that could only be extinguished once he was able to exact revenge!
Xiao Ya and Wang Hao stared at Fang Lin with trepidation, realizing that what happened today was the turning point of Fang Lin’s life!
Fang Lin’s mindset and perception of life was changed by his and his fellow disciples’ deaths!
Before, Fang Lin just wanted to live comfortably like Wang Hao. But now, Fang Lin’s eyes burned with determination to avenge his fellow disciples!
Wang Hao let out a smile, knowing that the next 4 days might be the darkest days of the Planet Thrae!
“I am so looking forward to this!”
