The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 3
Chapter 3: One-Headed Hydra
Fang Lin then stared at his master who sat cross-legged on the floor. Suddenly, an intense pressure erupted from him, spreading throughout the whole Mystical Forest. All the beasts knelt under the pressure of a godly divine beast. Only Fang Lin, who had a Godly divine beast bloodline can withstand the bloodline pressure. A silhouette of a massive beast suddenly appeared behind his master.
“Haha, how do you like seeing the One-Headed Hydra?” The coffin person laughed uproariously as a massive silhoutte towered over Fang Lin. “It was quite majestic isn’t it?”
However, after seeing the beast, Fang Lin could not help but spit some blood.
“How the hell is this majestic? It just looks like a frazzled old snake!” The massive beast looked like an aging boa constrictor, and Fang Lin could not fathom on how it could be called a hydra
“What snake? This is a hydra!”
“Pfft, hydra are supposed to have a lot of heads you know, maybe it really is just a snake.”
” Nghhhh, you caught me good”
“It’s really just a snake?”
“Fine, my bloodline is called the Sizzling Snake King”
“Hahahahahahaha!” “How could it be called like that!” Even if Fang Lin was aghast by his master’s naming sense, he still could not help but laugh from that absurd name. The coffin person flushed red from hearing this. It was obvious he was also bothered by this.
“Stop laughing and prepare for the synergy of the bloodline!” The coffin person immediately focused all the pressure into Fang Lin. Fang Lin felt as if his blood was boiling and he could not help but shout. Formless gas appeared out of the pores of his skin and coalesced behind him. It formed a silhouette of two human bodies revolving around each other, similar to a Yin-Yang symbol.
“It really is the Yin-Yang beast bloodline!” The coffin person then made his bloodline projection approach Fang Lin’s. Suddenly, a primordial energy materialized between them.
“This is it, the Grandmist energy!” All the first Godly divine beasts were said to be born from this type of energy, and the coffin person exploited this to force this energy to appear.
He then stretched his hand and directly touched the grandmist energy. If he were other person, he will die immediately. But with his Sizzling Snake King bloodline, he will not be hurt by this energy. Too bad his strength was sealed so he could not use this energy to attack at all. But this energy is enough to temporarily unlock his seal.
The coffin person then shouted, “Six petals, unlock!”. The grandmist energy then collided with the seal on his forehead and forcefully covered six of the petals. He sighed in relief then he looked towards Fang Lin and he said “Here we go brat, start focusing now!”
The coffin person then stretched both his palms in front of him. On his right hand, a golden stream of energy appeared which seemed to resonate strongly with its surroundings, while on his left, a transparent but brilliant energy materialized which seemed to exude mysteriousness and individuality. “The one on my right hands is the the divine energy, while the one on the left is the immortal qi. Try to imprint the feeling you will get from them. It will be highly beneficial to you.”
The coffin person immediately pointed his hands towards Fang Lin and the two streams of energy went inside him.
What Fang Lin first felt was that his bones were being grinded and reformed at the same time. “Muster your courage, for after your bones, your muscles and organs will experience the same thing. If you fall unconscious, you will die which is really not a good situation for me.” The coffin person said as he looked at Fang Lin worriedly.
After 2 days, his bones achieved its peak state already and if Fang Lin can have sane thoughts right now, he will discover that his bones can withstand a strike from a first stage beast! But he have no time to mull for this because it was his muscles turn to be torn apart and reconstructed back.
After 2 days of torturous pain, his muscles became unyieldingly tough and strong. With these muscles, Fang Lin’s agility can be compared to a peak first stage beast. It was his organ’s turn next.
The organs’ refinement is the most difficult and dangerous part of refinement. They are soft and and refining it brings the worst pain to a body refiner. And once someone falls unconscious at this stage, their organs will be destroyed beyond repair bringing certain death.
Against this pain, Fang Lin endured. He promised to himself that he is going to be a strong practitioner and that he will discover the truth on why his family abandoned him. He gritted his teeth and plowed on.
The coffin person looked admiringly at his disciple and said ” Haha, now that’s what you call toughness! Maybe I can matchmake him with my sister. Only tough men can endure her.” Upon the mention of his sister, the coffin person shivered. But then he exclaimed, “I have a sister? How did I remember it? Ah, it must be because of the temporarily unlocking of the seal. I just hope I forget her once the seal is locked again” he mused hopefully.
A week has exactly passed and suddenly, Fang Lin let out a shout. His bones creaked, muscles stretched and organs toughened. He felt as if he can sense every part of his body and that he can perfectly control it!
A formless energy traveled his body, giving Fang Lin a refreshing feeling that wiped away all of his exhaustion, both physical and mental.
“Perfect Body Refinement Stage!” The coffin person was delighted. “With this he can fight against
first stage beings, and this will be helpful for his survival.”
After this, the seal on the coffin person lighted up but this time only nine petals appeared in the seal.
“Hahaha, the first petal is now unlocked and I can use my energy at the level of the First Stage.” Tears started streaming from the coffin person’s face as he felt his freedom approaching him little by little. He scanned his memories, and he was delighted to see that he can remember his name now!
“Too bad I still remember my sister….”
The coffin person then looked over to Fang Lin who was inspecting his body with a mirror.
“Haha how do you feel now brat?”
“How come I did not become more handsome?”
