The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 320
Chapter 320: Star Shaking Hand
“Here they come.” Illusion Fang Lin braced himself as Old Man commanded the controlled Sir Florence to free the other Divine Beasts from the mind control.
Both Illusion Fang Lin and Old Man heard faint snap, followed by a painful silence.
What happened after that was a mayhem.
Six sets of monstrous killing intents exploded inside the house, with all of them focused on the room that Illusion Fang Lin was in.
It does not take a bright person to realized that these six killing intents were all focused on the poor Sir Florence!
“Oh boy, now I feel to afraid to watch.” Illusion Fang Lin muttered as the door of their room collapsed.
Chi Xing, Fang Lin’s fellow Celestial Phoenix bellowed as she rushed towards Sir Florence. Her body trembled as she released the entirety of her power.
“Hmm… Peak Second Stage like me and 2 Celestial Nirvanas. Not bad.” Illusion Fang Lin muttered as he realized Chi Xing can be considered to be pretty strong for her stage.
She snarled as her hands glowed white which she sent crashing towards Sir Florence.
“Star Shaking Hand!”
Illusion Fang Lin’s eyes lit up as he realized that this must be the first Cosmic Ability of Chi Xing!
Illusion Fang Lin could faintly feel that the hands of Chi Xing had been tempered by repeated absorption of cosmic essence.
Illusion Fang Lin determined that if his ‘Call of the Starlight’ brings a temporary boost to his whole abilities, then Chi Xing’s ‘Star Shaking Hand’ was a permanent power-up of both of her hands!
Illusion Fang Lin then saw traces of Claw Arts being used by Chi Xing.
“Wonderful! It seems like the Law that Chi Xing had been comprehending was related to Claw Laws! Combined with her ‘Star Shaking Hand’, each strike of her hands might be formidable!”
“Martial Magic! Heaven-Rending Claw!”
Both of Chi Xing’s hands turned golden, as the space around Chi Xing began to tremble. Even Illusion Fang Lin could feel a slight pressure from both of Chi Xing’s hands.
Fang Lin could even hear hints of a powerful Law emanating from her body!
“What a high-grade Claw Law! Is it Earth Grade? Or maybe Heaven Grade!” Illusion Fang Lin began to admire Chi Xing more and more.
Because Sir Florence was at the Law Soul Stage, his whole body was way tougher than a Mana Materialization Practitioner.
So Illusion Fang Lin sent Old Man a message, telling him to let Chi Xing have her ‘free strikes’.
Old Man agreed, mentally commanding Sir Florence to open up his defenses.
“Puchi!” Chi Xing’s eyes widened when she saw her hands penetrating Sir Florence’s head easily, like a knife slicing through butter.
She did not think much of this anomaly as he her hands vibrated rapidly, turning the insides of Sir Florence’s head like a mush.
“Thud!” Sir Florence’s body hit the floor as it experienced ‘bodily death’. But since he was a Law Soul Practitioner, his soul can exist independently of his body if something happened to it!
“There!” Chi Xing saw Sir Florence’s Nascent Soul floating out of his dead body. She spat out a sword from her mouth, which cleaved through Sir Florence’s soul.
That sword of hers seemed to have some anti-soul properties that easily vanquished the remnant soul of Sir Florence.
“What a great sword…..” Old Man muttered as he saw Chi Xing’s finishing move. “If she refines that sword in the future, even the monstrous Ghost King will be slain by that sword easily!”
“Ghost King? Who is he?” Illusion Fang Lin queried via divine transmission. “Is he strong?”
“You do not need to know it now.” Old Man seemed to shake his head as he did not answer Illusion Fang Lin’s question.
“The only thing that you need to know is that this Chi Xing will be a valuable ally to you.”
“Of course that I know.” Illusion Fang Lin grumbled as he watched the other divine beasts, excluding Chi Xing, kicking the dead body of Sir Florence.
“Oh, they are much calmer than what I thought.” Illusion Fang Lin muttered as he stared at Chi Xing, who stared back at him.
Illusion Fang Lin smiled as she bowed a little in front of her.
“Greetings to you again, Miss Chi Xing.”
Chi Xing was staring at her hands doubtfully after she killed Sir Florence.
She knew that Sir Florence had the power of a Law Soul Practitioner.
When she entered this room, she saw Sir Florence in a dazed state, turning him entirely defenseless. The anger that was clouding Chi Xing’s mind at that time made her attack Sir Florence out of rage.
She knew that even with Sir Florence defenseless, the best she could do was to slightly wound him.
But to her surprise, she was able to easily penetrate his head, killing him quickly.
As for his soul, killing that was easy with her Soul-Cleaving Sword.
“Why is he so easy to kill?” Chi Xing then stared at the only person that was with Sir Florence in the room.
Right, it was this middle-aged guy who looked like a rookie merchant. He gave Chi Xing a slight bow as he greeted her.
“Do you have a hand on what happened with him?” Chi Xing asked as she gazed at Illusion Fang Lin with uncertainty. Her instincts were telling her that this guy definitely has some secrets on him that were earth-shaking.
“I do have a hand, just like you having a ‘hand’ in his death. Pun intended.” Illusion Fang Lin replied as he stared at Chi Xing’s hands mirthfully. “Now that I confirmed your suspicions, what are you going to do about it?”
“Well I should thank you I guess, but from what I see, our gratitude is not what you want.” Chi Xing replied cautiously. “You want something from us right?”
“You’re quick.” Illusion Fang Lin smiled as he confirmed Chi Xing’s guess.
The other divine beasts, who heard the conversation between Chi Xing and Illusion Fang Lin, perked up their ears as they strained to listen on their conversation.
Illusion Fang Lin gave a sideways look to them, before shrugging his shoulders before saying,
“I am here to stop an evil plan by these guys.”
As the conversation plowed on, Chi Xing and the other divine beasts’ eyes could not help but widen as Illusion Fang Lin elaborated the insidious plan by the Palace of the Gods!
Sacrifice all of them to summon a powerhouse from the Beast God Planet? Now that is not good!
“It’s all summing up now!” Chi Xing muttered as she cupped her chin. “The kidnappings and the brainwashing were all done to have some divine beasts who will not fight back if they were to be sacrificed! Those bastards!”
Illusion Fang Lin nodded his head, visibly happy from the worried expressions on the other divine beasts. Them worrying means that they will surely help on his plan.
“Now that you are all worried like this, let us start the planning phase!” Illusion Fang Lin exclaimed as he kept Sir Florence’s corpse on his storage.
“We should find a way for all of us to survive from whatever our kidnappers planned to do!”
The other divine beasts, including Chi Xing nodded their heads, knowing that what Illusion Fang Lin said was right.
Right now, their lives were in danger, and only by working together that they can survive their current predicament!
“From what Sir Florence said, there is still 2 days before the start of the sacrifice. In that time scale we can surely concoct a pla-” But whatever Illusion Fang Lin tried to say was suddenly cut off by several powerful presences!
“Fang Lin! This is not good!” Old Man said as both Illusion Fang Lin and Chi Xing had ugly expressions on their faces.
They could sense that just outside the room, there were 5 Law Domain Practitioners all approaching the house with their domineering auras!
That was 5 Fifth Stage Practitioners about to enter their place!
“I’m sorry, I think its my fault…..” Chi Xing muttered as she realized the mistake that she made.
The Palace of the Gods must have some sort of indicator on the current status of their members.
Sir Florence, who was surely an important member of the Palace of the Gods, must have a life jade slip on their headquarters!
With Chi Xing killing the defenseless Sir Florence, his life jade slip shattered, which must have shocked those at the headquarters!
With them knowing that Sir Florence was with the divine beasts, they must have thought that something has gone awfully wrong with him!
The Palace of the Gods sending 5 Law Domain Practitioners to check the on the divine beasts is one of the worst possible situations for Illusion Fang Lin and the other divine beasts!
“Bang!” The entrance door collapsed, as 5 powerful auras seeped into the mansion.
Chi Xing trembled, as she looked at Illusion Fang Lin with an apologetic look.
Upon seeing this, Illusion Fang Lin shook his head wryly as he said,
“Do not worry, I already have a contingency plan for a situation like this.”
“Really?” The divine beasts’ eyes glowed with hope as they watched what Illusion Fang Lin was about to do.
Illusion Fang Lin took a deep breath before saying,
“Hey all of you f**kwads! We already know about your plan to sacrifice us to summon someone from the Beast God Planet! Hahaha! We do not want to be sacrificed like that! So we will kill ourselves right now! That way, bastards like the Palace of the Gods won’t benefit from us!”
“What the hell are you saying!!!!!!!!” x6
