The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 309
Chapter 309: Black Chunk of Space Rock
“So how about it?” Sir Florence said as his voice turned more enticing. “Do you agree with our deal?”
“Piss off!” Illusion Fang Lin said as he gave Sir Florence an icy look. “I may not look like it, but I hate people like you forcing what they want on me!”
“That’s very disappointing…..” Sir Florence said as he looked authentically disappointed. “Well whatever, I am still here to do my job.” He reached out his hands towards Illusion Fang Lin’s head, obviously attempting to do memory manipulation.
“Here it goes!” Illusion Fang Lin thought to himself as he grinned inwardly.
The instant that Sir Florence entered Illusion Fang Lin’s mind, he froze as he saw something unexpected.
“This is…..” But before Sir Florence could say more, his body froze as he felt a foreign energy invading his body.
“What the hell are you doing!” Sir Florence tried to use his aura to call for help, but it was too late for him as he lost his consciousness.
“That was a good warm-up for me.” Illusion Fang Lin grinned as he heard a voice inside his head.
This voice came from Fang Lin’s Second Master, the Old Man!
After Fang Lin created the Illusion Fang Lin, he left the tablet containing the Old Man to Illusion Fang Lin before Fang Lin fused with Fang Yu.
He was not sure why, but Fang Lin thought that Illusion Fang Lin might need Old Man.
Turns out that he was right at that time, since the old man just managed to wake up from his slumber during the time that Sir Florence made a deal with Illusion Fang Lin.
“Let him enter your mind, I will deal with him.” Old Man said to Illusion Fang Lin as he seemingly stretched his body.
“You may now know it, but that slumber made me gain more soul energy than what I could have expected. Because of that. I was able to let my soul power out around the distance 5 meters around the tablet.”
“Then do it well old man.” Illusion Fang Lin sternly replied as he rejected Sir Florence’s offer. “He’s coming now!”
Illusion Fang Lin then felt Sir Florence’s energy probing his illusory mind, trying to bend it to his will.
But before he could do so, Old Man made his move.
With the connection made by Sir Florence, Sir Florence’s mind was now open to interference from the outside.
Old Man used his power to infiltrate this connection, managing to enter Sir Florence’s mindscape.
Sir Florence struggled for a few seconds, but he was unable to break free of the Old Man’s control.
“Whew.” The Old Man said as he metaphorically wiped his sweat. “That’s the first time I used mind control in a very long time. Good thing I did not turn rusty.”
“……..” Illusion Fang Lin chose not to ask how Old Man learned mind control, since he knew Old Man was an eccentric freak who liked studying weird and abstruse arts.
“As long as this guy stays 5 meters within the tablet, he will be under my control.” Old Man said to Fang Lin smugly. “So make sure that you will be around 5 meters of him.”
“Fine, fine.” Illusion Fang Lin replied exasperatedly. “Now that you can control him, do you think you will be able to cough up all information from him regarding this whole ‘Divine Beast Plan’?
“I can do that, but mind you, because this guy was a memory manipulator, he can still somewhat resist my mind intrusions on him. It will take me a day to completely subdue him and make him talk. If I was in my peak, I can do it within a second, but because I am weak now….”
“Fine!” Illusion Fang Lin said as he gestured towards the door. “Let’s find a secluded room first. Then you make this Florence tell the other divine beasts that he will do something beneficial to me that will last a day.”
“Kay.” Sir Florence and Illusion Fang Lin stood up as they headed to a secluded room.
“By the way,” Old Man asked Illusion Fang Lin, “Don’t you want to restore the memories of those other divine beasts? I can do that later.”
“Not yet.” Illusion Fang Lin replied hastily. “We need to know first the plans of the Palace of the Gods before doing that.”
They did the sufficient preparations that they had to before hiding in a room in the house.
“Fang Lin.” Old Man said as Illusion Fang Lin and the controlled Sir Florence took their respective seats in the room. “Look what I found inside this man’s storage.”
Sir Florence’s body shook as something came out of his storage.
Illusion Fang Lin’s eyes widened as he and the Original Fang Lin in the Goddess Planet felt something special about this object.
That object that came out was large meteorite.
It was three meters in length and over a meter in height. It was obsidian black in color, and its surface looked so polished that it felt smooth to the touch.
“This is a Spirt Meteorite.” Old Man said as he saw Illusion Fang Lin’s entranced look. “This came from a meteorite which gained sentience and tried to practice cultivation. But since it was not supposed to do that, it underwent tribulations at each stage that it undergoes.”
Old Man continued speaking with admiration as Illusion Fang Lin stroked the meteorite.
“From what I can see, this meteorite reached the peak of the Third Stage and was about to break through to the Law/Dao Soul Stage. But its soul was destroyed by the tribulation, effectively killing it.”
“So what I see right now was just its corpse?” Illusion Fang Lin asked as he gazed at the Spirit Meteorite. “It’s slightly creepy you know.”
Old Man snorted quickly he ignored what Illusion Fang Lin said.
“When this Spirit Meteorite died, it went off its orbit and just started spiraling into space. By some chances, it crashed into this Planet Thrae, and this Florence guy seemingly was the one who found it.”
“So what can I do with this?” Illusion Fang Lin, being the greedy person that he was, immediately asked for its benefits. “I do not know why, but my original body in the Goddess Planet felt greed upon seeing this Spirit Meteorite.”
“Idiot!” Old Man harshly rebuked Illusion Fang Lin. “You already have the Essence Core of the Celestial Phoenix, and yet you do not notice it? This meteorite came from the cosmos you dolt!”
“Ah, so this meteorite has some Cosmic Essence!” Illusion Fang Lin’s eyes shone as he gazed at the meteorite with greed. “If I use this…..”
“You will be able to pass one or two Celestial Nirvanas at most.” Old Man replied quickly. “So, isn’t this thing great?”
Illusion Fang Lin rapidly nodded, like a very enthusiastic child seeing ice cream sold outside its house. “This is great!”
“Told you so.” The meteorite then disappeared, entering Sir Florence’s storage once more.
“Hey!” Illusion Fang Lin complained as it disappeared. “Why did you take it?”
“Why? Will your Original Body use this now huh?” The Old Man replied scathingly. “You can only use this when your Original Body was in mortal danger or is about to die. From what you said to me earlier while we were walking to this room, your Original Body is attending a party now, right?”
“Right…” Illusion Fang Lin sadly replied.
“Then that means your Original Body cannot use this meteorite for now!” Old Man replied. “I will give this to you only if your Original Body needs it. But right now, this stays with me first.”
4 hours had passed by after that conversation.
Old Man was busy weathering down Sir Florence’s mental defenses while Illusion Fang Lin’s eyes were closed, impatiently waiting for Old Man to finish.
Suddenly, lllusion Fang Lin opened his eyes as a look of panic appeared on his face.
“Old Man! Give me the Spirit Meteorite quick!” Illusion Fang Lin said as his face started to look pale. My Original Body needs it now!”
“Really?” Old Man asked skeptically. “What’s your reason now? 3 hours ago you said it’s to improve his cultivation quickly. 2 hours ago you said it’s my responsibility as your master to give you the meteorite. Then 30 minutes ago, you said a friend of yours named ‘Andromeda’ was about to be sacrificed. I told you many times already, only when you are in grave danger that I will give you the meteorite.”
“That’s actually it!” Illusion Fang Lin replied angrily. “My Original Body is about to die now! If I do not use the Spirit Meteorite to undergo a Celestial Nirvana, me, your precious disciple, will die!”
“Why did you just say that now!” Old Man exclaimed as he immediately handed over the Sprit Meteorite to Illusion Fang Lin. “Do whatever you want with that!”
Old Man then paused as he saw Illusion Fang Lin looking slightly uncomfortable. “What’s the problem now?”
Illusion Fang Lin held the Spirit Meteorite as he gave an awkward look to Old Man. “Because my Original Body performed the body fusion from the prison earlier, the Male Fang Lin will appear there if he unfused with Fang Yu.”
“And that means….” Old Man looked at Fang Lin expectantly as he wanted Illusion Fang Lin to go on.
“As you may know, the prison is currently in chaos now. Male Fang Lin appearing there might not be actually great….”
“Oh for f**k’s sake!”
