The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 287
Chapter 287: Wholehearted Surrender
“!!!” Fang Yu’s eyes glowed green as the figure of the ‘Soul King’ appeared behind her. Its crown let out a glow as a soul avatar went out of it.
Karen, who saw this happen, let out an angry mutter as she cursed her master mentally. Andromeda, who was pinned under Karen, did not struggle at all. She just stared at the confrontation between Fang Yu and the visitor.
The soul avatar that came out of the crown was a sword-wielding skeleton. The blade of the sword has a curved edge, which seemed to have increased its sharpness.
The skeleton then sent its sword slashing towards the visitor.
“Schik….” That sword attack created a very small wound on the arm gripping Fang Yu. Upon seeing this, the visitor hastily withdrew his arm as he stared at the skeleton warily.
“Hmm.” Fang Yu muttered after seeing the effect of the skeleton’s attack.
Karen, who saw the exchange, could not help but shout out in surprise. She pointed her finger to Fang Yu as she said,
“Master, what did you do to those soul avatars? When they were under my control before, I tried fighting Boss Shax with all of the soul avatars that I gathered, yet even their combined attacks did not faze him!”
Karen gulped as she gave the sword-wielding skeleton a fearful gaze. “But why with just one soul avatar, you were able to penetrate his defense, even by just slightly!”
“That? It’s because of the strengthening effect of my soul avatar.” Fang Yu replied as she rubbed her neck while wincing.
It may be a lie, but it was also somewhat true.
The power of the Glaistig was complete dominion over the ghosts.
But aside from that, all the ghosts that the Glaistig controls will gain additional power for every new ghost that the Glaistig can control!
This additional power will depend on the power of the ghosts controlled.
For example, if the Glaistig added a ghost with the power of the First Stage, the additional power that the controlled ghosts will gain was small.
But if the added ghost has the power of the Fourth Stage, the power that the controlled ghosts will gain will be larger!
This is the real danger of the Glaistig Divine Beast! The more ghosts are under its control, the more powerful they will become!
Right now, Fang Yu’s total number of soul avatars were able to raise the strength of each soul avatar to a higher level.
“Hehehe, what a great power-up!” Fang Yu thought to herself as she looked at the slight gash on Shax’s arm.
“What will happen if I absorb all the soul avatars in this area? That will be great!” Fang Yu wiped away that thought on her mind as she talked to the visitor.
“You said your name Is Shax? I do not care if you are the real one or not. Now that you challenged the great Fang Hao, you have to face the consequences!”
The crown glowed once more as 2 new soul avatars appeared.
One looked like a mermaid, but with her upper body made up of liquid, and her lower part just like a fish.
The other one was a baby, whose body was covered with countless lightning bolts.
“Get him!” Fang Yu said as the three soul avatars that she produced went rushing towards Shax.
“You definitely sounded a villain with that line.” Andromeda said with a deadpan smile.
Because she still had to keep her identity safe, Fang Yu decided to fight this Shax with just her soul avatars.
She can feel that this visitor had slight suspicions on her identity. Maybe the reason it fought Fang Yu in the first place was to make her show her real fighting capabilities.
“Well suck it!”
From what she can see, as long as she does not use anything aside from her soul avatars, her real identity might not be compromised.
The mermaid summoned a large wave that covered Shax. The range of that attack was so large that even when Shax tried to dodge, he was still hit by the wave. He sputtered as he spat the water that entered his mouth.
At that moment, the baby let out an adorable shout that was as cute as Tang Li’s as it poured its lightning on the wet Shax, managing to immobilize him.
The skeleton then sent it sword stabbing towards Shax, who did not move from his spot.
Fang Yu watched as the sword went cleanly through Shax’s body. It entered through his stomach and exited at his back.
Fang Yu waved her hands, dispelling the soul avatars that she used.
“You are not him then.” Fang Yu muttered to herself as she approached the wounded Shax. But then to her surprise, she saw the body in front of her suddenly disintegrating into nothingness.
“This body is a fake!” Fang Yu thought as she saw what happened.
A mysterious voice then sounded out inside the room.
“Jejeje, that’s right Fang Hao. That one you fought was just one of the many fake bodies that I created.” Everyone inside Fang Yu’s room looked around trying to see where the voice came from.
“Don’t look anymore. My real body is here on the Exalted Layer. I just used some magic to talk to you here.” The voice jovially said. “So how was it? How was the feeling of fighting against one of my fake bodies?”
“It was ok I guess. But that one must be weak compared to you.” Fang Yu replied with a sneer. “After all, you do not need a strong fake body to reside in the Common Layer right?”
“Yeah you’re right.” The voice replied with a bored tone. “That body you fought earlier was the weakest fake body that I have. I was actually surprised that it took you that long to defeat it. I was slightly disappointed, honestly.”
“Stop talking as if you know my real power. Who are you? And what do you want from me?” Fang Yu asked as she prepared to fuse with Fang Lin in case of an emergency.
Someone who claims to have come from the Exalted Layer must be one of those Djinns. Fang Yu expected that a Djinn will come and try to talk to her because of her outstanding ‘soul avatar’.
But someone approaching her and fighting her just an hour after the match? That was too quick even for Fang Yu!
“Did you not hear what that sadist Karen say before? My name is Shax!” The voice replied with displeasure on its tone. “As for what I want with you, you can say that your…. soul avatar had piqued my interest.”
Fang Yu heaved a sigh of relief, as she realized that Shax might not have realized her real mission after all.
“Oh, there is one more reason I am interested in you Fang Hao.” Shax jeered as his voice started to fade. “If you want to know what reason that, is come meet one of my fake bodies at the Oakwood Auction in the Median Layer. See you there, Fang Hao.”
“!!!!” That farewell message of Shax managed to make Fang Yu worried once more. But what choice does Fang Yu have but to meet him?
After all, Shax seems to not have any malicious intentions to Fang Yu.
From the looks of it, Shax just wanted to talk with Fang Yu about something. But if he does harbor something nasty on Fang Yu, she will not hesitate you use her arsenal of abilities to keep herself alive.
“Oh, and one more reminder.” The voice still had some power left, making Fang Yu hear its last words.
“Our fight was under the surveillance by the city guards. What do you think will they do once they saw you murdering someone just outside your room?”
“Oh cr*p!” Fang Yu thought as she looked at her companions with panic. “Pack your stuff now! We need to leave!”
“Hehehe, if you can survive them, then you, Fang Hao, will be worthy enough to meet me at the Median Layer….” The voice said nothing more as Fang Yu urged the disobedient Karen and the listless Andromeda to move faster.
“Ah! I feel like I am babysitting some children!” Fang Yu thought to herself as she put Tang Li on her storage.
“Since I killed someone on their watch, the city guards might be coming now to arrest me!” Fang Yu muttered as she cursed Shax mentally.
That slimy bastard had the gall to set-up Fang Yu!
“You are now surrounded by us! Now surrender peacefully if you will!” Fang Yu heard rough voices from the outside, urging her to surrender right now. “Fight back, and we will not be merciful!”
“Ok. Karen, I command you to join Archomeda and escape with her. When you are with her, you must follow her commands like she’s your master.”
“Fine!” Karen muttered in anger while Andromeda prepared to leave.
“I assume you had a plan for a situation like this right?” Andromeda said as she swung Karen over her shoulders.
“Of course I do.” Fang Yu replied smugly. “Who do you think I am, just to fall for some mere guards?”
“…. Ok then.” Andromeda replied quietly. “Let’s just see each other later.”
Andromeda and Karen disappeared, as her suit activated stealth mode. She will no doubt employ sneak to escape.
“Now then.” Fang Yu stretched her body as she faced the door. She took a deep breath before saying,
“I surrender! Arrest me now!”
“Wait are you serious?” That was the last thing that Fang Yu heard before she forced the door open.
“Of course I am serious! Now come and arrest me! Are you all wimps to be scared of someone who did a voluntary surrender?”
