The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 301
Chapter 301: Seven is the Number
Fang Xiushang stared at the Golden Bull in confusion, as if he could not believe what he was seeing. He slowly swiveled his head towards Wang Hao, who just gave him a cheeky smile in return.
“Where the hell did you get this…. thing!”
“Ah that’s a secret…. I told you we will escape right?” Wang Hao waved his hands playfully. “You said you want to escape, so here we are!”
Sure, Fang Xiushang said what he ‘wanted’ to escape, but its not like he can actually do it!
But when Wang Hao heard Fang Xiushang’s agreement earlier, he wasted no time as he kicked the iron bars of the prison.
His kick was so strong that the iron bars flew off the hinges.
Wang Hao stepped outside, then he suddenly rushed out, pulling the iron bars of the other cells with incredible ease.
“How can he do this without alerting the wardens?” Fang Xiushang was full of confusion while he was watching at that moment. After all, in order for Wang Hao to have the strength to destroy those bars, he should have used a spell or something, right?
And if he used a spell, wardens should come out swarming towards him already.
But Wang Hao continued ripping out iron bars, freeing the prisoners inside and no wardens coming in. Along the way, he also ripped apart the signal cords binding the prisoners.
With these prisoners free, they started to wreak havoc in the prison, using their abilities without restraints.
Wang Hao continued unleashing chaos until the wardens took whiff of what’s happening.
By the time the wardens arrived, Wang Hao was able to free 10% of the prisoners.
“Took you long enough.” Wang Hao smiled when he saw the fuming wardens and guards. He then withdrew a scroll from his robes, and he then activated it.
“Mooo!!!!” That was all Fang Xiushang could hear as an extremely large Golden Bull suddenly appeared on the prison.
It pawed its massive hooves, clearly displeased on where it was summoned to.
That was the time that the wardens started attacking the rowdy crowd.
But with the golden bull present, they were unable to strike back. The golden bull let out a snort as some of the wardens who tried to attack it became golden statues.
This was enough for everyone to fear this rampaging bull.
“Moooo!!!” The golden bull seemed to have follow some sort of commandment as it crashed its massive hooves on more prison bars, which led to more freed prisoners, which led to even greater chaos.
“I like your idea here…. But doesn’t prison escape require stealth and secrecy? There is hardly no stealth in what you did here!” Fang Xiushang complained as he fought against some prisoners who tried to attack him.
“Ah, it was because all of this was a bait for someone.” Wang Hao said as he looked at the skies. “I did all this to attract that person. That person will surely arrive any moment now.”
There was 10 more minutes of chaos that ensued before Wang Hao and Fang Xiushang heard a booming voice echoing throughout the whole prison.
“What gall you guys have! So you dare doing this in my prison? It seems like you forgot who’s the boss here!”
“A golden bull?” Illusion Fang Lin slightly stirred as he remembered a story that Wang Hao told him before.
That story was about Wang Hao’s exploits with a Princess of the Tian Ji Empire into a certain village near the Forest of Death.
Fang Lin vividly remembered about Wang Hao talking about a Golden Bull existing in there.
But with the description that Wang Hao gave to him, Fang Lin was not sure if that golden bull was the same as the golden bull that he heard from the distress message.
“You pathetic weakling!” The Head Warden screeched as she almost threw the artifact on the floor. “It’s just a fat cow, and yet you’re not able to do something to it?”
“But Head Warden, anyone who attempts to attack gets turned into a golden statue….” The voice hesitantly replied. “In fact, even I was affected too! My whole left leg was pure solid gold now…..”
“…” The Head Warden took some deep breaths as she tried to calm herself down. “I am going back now. It seems like some people decided to play on my grounds!”
There was a wooshing sound as the Head Warden disappeared, leaving Illusion Fang Lin at the mercy of the gruff-voiced man.
“Don’t worry, everything will be alright….” The man said soothingly.
Illusion Fang Lin did not trust this man at all.
Illusion Fang Lin was then thrown in to a large house, which awfully looked like a large mansion.
The door was locked even before Illusion Fang Lin could say something.
“Ok….” By this time, Illusion Fang Lin was already out of the bag, and the talismans were removed from him.
But even with that, he still found his power suppressed, but he also felt his bloodline abilities not affected.
“Don’t tell me this whole room has a large formation designed to suppress my power?” Illusion Fang Lin knew that he was surely right, since nobody in their right mind will put a captive divine beast in a room without any way to suppress its power.
“But why does it not suppress the divine beast bloodline abilities? Hmmm…” Illusion Fang Lin thought as he stretched his body.
“Well, even if I can transform into a Moon-Eating Serpent, the power suppressing formation in this room will just render that form powerless. So there will be no problem to those who captured me if I use my bloodline abilities here.”
“With the limitations of this body, escape is still futile here. But its not like I want to escape… Time to wander this place I guess.” Illusion Fang Lin was about to wander the large house when he suddenly felt something tackling him from behind.
“Ugh. How can this be? Even with my power sealed, my soul has reached a high level of power. Detecting anyone coming near me should be easy!” Illusion Fang Lin thought as he tried to look behind him.
There, he saw a small girl, around 8 years old tackling him with vigor. But even with Fang Lin looking at her, he realized he found it hard to maintain his focus on her.
It was as if her presence was so miniscule that she’s almost unnoticeable even when she was in front of him.
“I got him!” The small girl said as Illusion Fang Lin landed on the ground.
“Okay!!!” Illusion Fang Lin heard a door opening, and out there came out 5 people. 3 of them were girls while the other 2 were males.
Seeing all of them made Illusion Fang Lin realized something.
“The gruff speaker earlier said that I am the 7th Divine Beast that they captured. Including me, there are now 7 people on this house. That means this other 6 were also Divine Beasts!”
While Illusion Fang Lin was on the ground, he tried to stand up. But before he could do so, one of the 2 males rushed towards him.
His body was ripped, indicating that he had a powerful body. Even idiots will notice that. This man also had naïve expression on his face, as if he was sheltered in a hidden place before.
“Don’t move brother. If you do, I will be punching you so hard your bones will break.” The man said as he prepared some ropes.
“Someone did not follow that advice, and I accidentally broke his ribs.”
Right on cue, the other remaining male shivered as if he was affected by what the man said.
This male was a thin guy, wearing glasses and baggy clothes. He held some scrolls on his right hand. His left hand on the other hand was pointing at the brawny man as he said,
“Look at your damn naïve face! How could I have known that you will actually punch me back then? If not for Elsa’s healing abilities, I would have been gone now!”
“Oh shut up.” One of the three females said as she slapped the bespectacled guy on the back. “I just want to see if I can use my healing abilities here in this prison house. You are just an experiment of mine.”
“But you still helped me, so I am happy for that!” The bespectacled guy replied.
“Ok ok. If we managed to escape, you have to pay for the medicinal care I gave to you.” Elsa said as she smiled deviously. “If you will not pay, those injuries will return…..”
Besides Elsa and the girl who tackled him, Illusion Fang Lin could see 2 more girls. While the brawny guy was busy tying him up, Illusion Fang Lin observed the two.
The one on the left was a quiet girl, around 15-16 years old. Her long, light brown hair was braided at the top of her head. She just stared at Illusion Fang Lin with those calculating eyes of hers.
Illusion Fang Lin felt lucky that his libido was currently sacrificed because this woman looked like a beautiful spy.
As for the last woman, she’s also staring at Illusion Fang Lin. But she was not staring with wariness, only with curiosity. She had long black hair that reached her ankles. She was also a beauty, with her snow-white skin and her perfect face managing to enthrall Illusion Fang Lin for a second.
“….” Illusion Fang Lin was sure why this woman was staring at him with no hostility and only with curiosity.
“Oh come on….” Illusion Fang Lin thought to himself as the black-haired woman approached him.
It may be only faint, but Illusion Fang Lin could sense it.
This black-haired woman was a Divine Beast similar to one of the Divine Beasts that Fang Lin used to create an Essence Core!
