The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 296
Chapter 296: This Time, it’s for Real!
“…..” Because of the injuries that the King Hydra accrued, it was not able to fight back against Fang Lin’s devouring power.
The entirety of its whole body had been devoured by Fang Lin: bones, muscles, and its organs.
“Burp.” Fang Lin let out a satisfied sigh as he completely ate the King Hydra. He felt full, as if he just ate an extremely large meal.
He felt extremely sleepy, as his eyes started to droop.
“So here we go…..” Fang Lin knew that this was the effect of him devouring such a powerful creature.
Just like certain reptiles, Fang Lin had to go on a sleep in order to fully digest the King Hydra that he just devoured.
He needed that sleep to completely turn such a large creature as nourishment for his body.
Aside from that, his mind also needed that sleep to completely read the memories of Lin Xiang, Tao’er, Yu’er and of the King Hydra.
“After I wake up, I will have reaped the benefits of this meal…” Fang Lin’s body shimmered as he returned on his human form.
He managed to lower the ship on the water before he transformed back.
With the death of the King Hydra, the water went back to its normal state. Even the corpses of the sea creatures earlier were also gone.
“Thud.” Fang Lin fell back into the still capsizing ship with a thud.
Nobody tried to catch him, since most of them were in awe and fear of his power.
In the end, only Wang Hao, Fang Xiushang, and Ling’er were the ones who approached him.
“Hey! The ship is still sinking! What should we do?” The captain cried out in panic once more.
Yes, they were saved from the King Hydra by Fang Lin, but the main problem was not yet resolved.
Their ship is still sinking!
“Hak!” In response to that, Fang Lin coughed up a certain pouch from his mouth.
This pouch was a property of Lin Xiang, which contained all of his items.
With his devouring abilities, Fang Lin chose to not consume this storage pouch since it will have some good things inside it.
And his suspicion was right, since he saw something inside Lin Xiang’s pouch that made him relieved.
“Inside the pouch was a fast-moving ship. It can carry all of us. Take it out and use it….” That was the last thing that Fang Lin said before he fell into a slumber.
The one guarding the entrance gave a suspicious look to Fang Yu as she stood in front of him.
It had been already 14 hours since the prison escape fiasco, and Fang Yu reckoned that it will be fine for her to attempt entering Median Layer already.
With Tang Li, Genie and Karen busy training the soul army, only Andromeda was with Fang Yu.
Andromeda had a mask on her head as she stood beside her.
As for Fang Yu, she had the face of Fang Xiushang as she gave a cocky smile to the guard.
“Is that your bodyguard?” The guard asked as he looked at the masked Andromeda warily. “You must be rich then. Soul fighters hired as bodyguards tend to be quite…. Expensive.”
“Yeah, this lass here is my guard. See?” Fang Yu said as the lightning baby appeared behind Andromeda.
It was of course Fang Yu’s, but with her ghost manipulation skills, she made it appear as if it was Andromeda that was controlling it.
“This is her soul avatar. Isn’t he cute?” Fang Yu in a male appearance cooed as she patted the lightning baby’s head.
Seeing the appearance of the soul avatar made the guard sure about Andromeda’s abilities.
The guard then rubbed his hands as he said,
“So you want to go to the Median Layer I reckon?”
“Yes, that is my full intention here.” Fang Yu replied honestly. “How long will this actually take?”
“Well…. The guard scratched his head as he looked around him cautiously. Once the guard was sure that nobody was looking at him, he smiled at Fang Yu and said,
“As long as you give ‘us’ enough money, an hour is enough to process everything.”
“All right.” Fang Yu did not waste any time as she clicked her fingers.
Andromeda then moved as she rummaged the bag that was at her back.
There, Andromeda drew a stack of a million Soloms. She gave it to the guard, who stared at the stack with joy.
“Is this enough?” Fang Yu replied coyly.
“This is enough!” The guard hastily replied as he looked around him once more.
“Don’t worry, 30 minutes will be enough for this Sir Fang! Just wait here, and I will be back later with the required documents!”
The guard did not lie. After just half an hour, Fang Yu was able to obtain a residency permit and a token signifying the membership into the Median Layer.
What happened after that was fairly quick too.
Fang Yu already had her things with her. Now, she only needed to move to the Median Layer to complete her transfer.
“Orias and his partner Djinns were supposed to enter the Underground now. What will they do upon entering I wonder?” Fang Yu pondered this before asking the guard something.
“Hey, is there a coliseum in the Median Layer? I liked the coliseum in the Common Layer, and I want to see more action…”
“Oh, don’t worry Sir Fang. There’s also a coliseum in the Median Layer, and all their fighters were way stronger than the soul fighters here in the Common Layer!”
“Oh my.” Fang Yu thought to herself as she decided to head to this coliseum first.
“If they are all strong, that means their soul avatars are strong too! I can’t wait to ‘see’ them all!”
Fang Yu and Andromeda then bade goodbye to the ‘helpful’ guard as they entered the second level in the Underground Colony.
“Mnnnn…..” Fang Lin opened his eyes as he woke up from his slumber. He stretched his body, feeling the effects of the devouring that he employed.
He felt his own vitality becoming thicker because of him devouring the King Hydra! Not only that, but he felt his bones getting slightly tougher, his muscles stronger and his organs more robust!
This was undoubtedly the nourishment given by the King Hydra!
But what made Fang Lin pleasantly surprised was the fact that all of his Essence Cores seemed to have improved!
Their sizes did not change, but the essence and power in these cores actually increased!
Fang Lin reckoned that if he used the abilities of his Essence Cores right now, their abilities will also have increased might!
But the increase in power on his Essence Cores were so miniscule, that only Fang Lin could detect this increase.
But this small increase made Fang Lin confirm something.
“As long as I devour strong creatures like that King Hydra, my body and my Essence Cores will get stronger! The increase in power might even be better if I devoured Divine Beasts or even Godly Divine Beasts!”
Fang Lin clenched his hands as he already planned out his cultivation goals to prepare the breakthrough to the Core Stage.
First, he will delve more on the mysteries of the Duality Dao/Law that he comprehended. After all, he was sure this will be a part of his Core Creation process.
Second, he will devour powerful beasts before breaking through to the Core Stage. After all, doing this will strengthen his body and his essence cores, which will make his foundation stronger too.
And the better his foundation was, the stronger Fang Lin will be upon breaking through.
“Oh right, where am I now?” Due to his excitement over his harvests, Fang Lin forgot to ask that important question earlier.
He looked around him, realizing that he was in a simple room with three modest-looking beds.
Three of the 4 walls in the room were made up of stones, while the 4th wall was made of something else.
The remaining wall was not a wall at all, but rows and columns of metal bars. Fang Lin touched the metal bars, feeling that they were cold to the touch.
There was a small hole with a flap at the middle of the metal bars. That must be where the food will be passed through.
“Don’t tell me…..” Fang Lin with a petrified face looked beside him, and there he saw Wang Hao and Fang Xiushang staring at him.
Upon seeing Fang Lin’s intrigued look, Fang Xiushang sighed as he said,
“After you slept, we were able to use the ship inside that storage you gave us. We abandoned the broken ship and used the new ship to reach the God Continent.”
Fang Xiushang then gritted his teeth as he continued talking.
“The new ship was faster than the old one, so we managed to reach the God Continent in just half a day. But after we arrived at the pier, countless guards from the pier arrived as they arrested all of us!”
“What you are thinking right now is correct.” Wang Hao then chimed in as he confirmed Fang Lin’s suspicions.
“We are in prison right now.”
