The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 327
Chapter 327: Plans after plans
Even though they were at the top of the Palace, Illusion Fang Lin and the others could still hear the sounds of battle coming from the ground.
Even here, 10 kilometers above the ground, they could feel the shockwaves of the clash between the practitioners of the Palace of the Gods and the powerhouses of the Undead Horde.
Even the flames which were being tended by Ramsay right now started to sway because of these shockwaves.
“Tsk.” Ramsay grumbled as he pointed his fingers to the flame.
The flame became stronger, as Illusion Fang Lin felt as if Ramsay created an extremely small Fire Law Domain just under the bronze cauldron.
“I want to join in the fight, but here I am, assigned with making a divine beast soup….” Ramsay grumbled as the flames started to get stronger. “I know that I am a good cook, but really? Even though this sacrifice looks like a cooking process, that does not mean that I should be the one doing it! For the Gods’ sake, this divine beast soup is not even fit for consumption!”
“Boom!” After a few more minutes of tending, the flames that Ramsay took care of was now blazing brighter than ever.
“Glug glug glug.” Whatever concoction was placed inside the cauldron started to boil, as it glowed and let out a rainbow-colored smoke.
Despair appeared in the eyes of the divine beasts as Ramsay turned back to face them with his body slowly approaching them.
“Tsk.” Chi Xing gritted her teeth, realizing that her move did not do s**t at all. She tried to flop around, only to be grabbed by Ramsay.
“You are the cause of that Undead Horde, so if I put you in here first, you will die immediately. I reckon once that happens, the Undead Horde might leave us alone already.” Ramsay said sadistically as he approached the cauldron.
“Mmmm!!!!!” Chi Xing tried to shout, but her body was not responding at all.
She could only stare blankly as she approached the mouth of the bronze cauldron.
Her face began to flush red as the heat around the cauldron began to reach her. Sweat flowed down her body as she was placed by Ramsay above the cauldron.
There was only this weak sound after Ramsay dropped the paralyzed Chi Xing on the cauldron.
The eyes of the other divine beasts where now dim, as they realized that they are all f**ked now.
“Hey hey Fang Lin, did you just let a live person be boiled alive in front of you? That seems not like you!” Old Man said as he glared at Illusion Fang Lin. “Is this part of your plan?”
“Hah? You do not need to be worried about Chi Xing.” Illusion Fang Lin replied unceremoniously. “I can still feel that she is alive and well inside the cauldron.”
“Eh?” After hearing that statement, Old Man used his divine sense discreetly to see inside the cauldron.
There, he could see Chi Xing, still barely alive.
Even though she was about to die, her body let out an ancient aura as she lay in a fetal position.
Even Ramsay, who thought she should have been dead had his eyes wide open after he saw Chi Xing’s current condition.
“What the hell is this?” Ramsay did not expect to encounter a snag like this. “Sh*t sh*t sh*t!”
“Fang Lin… is she simulating a Celestial Nirvana now?” Old Man asked to Illusion Fang Lin.
“Yes, she is undergoing a Celestial Nirvana now.” Illusion Fang Lin duly replied. “After all, that is her only option to survive in this situation.”
What Illusion Fang Lin said was right.
Because of the fatal properties of the sacrifice process, coupled with her current paralysis, the best thing that Chi Xing could do now was to simulate a Celestial Nirvana!
But this seems to be a great chance for Chi Xing, for the heat inside the cauldron might be enough to hatch her egg form!
Ramsay and the Illusion Fang Lin watched as two sets of cosmic essence flowed out of Chi Xing’s storage. She must have been saving it for her next Celestial Nirvana, which she was doing right now.
Because of the intense heat, Chi Xing immediately reached the point where she was about to die. It was at this part that she turned into a red star exploding into a supernova, transforming into a black hole.
Because of the sturdiness of the cauldron, Chi Xing’s supernova explosion was unable to affect it. But Ramsay, who saw what was happening, was shaken as he realized what was happening.
“She’s trying to do something strange!” Ramsay exclaimed as he swooped in to remove Chi Xing out of the cauldron.
But before he could do so, the remaining set of cosmic essence covered the black hole, turning Chi Xing into a palm-sized egg.
It was only after this that Ramsay removed Chi Xing out off the egg.
“Argh!” This was the second time that Ramsay was pissed off by Chi Xing.
“So you have back-up plans for your back-up plans huh.” Ramsay muttered as he stared at the egg on his hands.
“Well as long as you don’t get near the cauldron, I think whatever you are planning will surely fail.”
Illusion Fang Lin watched as the egg disappeared into Ramsay’s storage.
Illusion Fang Lin pouted, as he realized that his plans might not be needed anymore.
After all, with what Chi Xing did, Ramsay will surely not allow her to be put inside the cauldron.
But with that, the available divine beasts to be sacrificed will only be around 6. There was no way for the ritual to work now.
This must have been Chi Xing’s desperate final plan.
She planned to turn herself into an invalid sacrifice, which will make the whole sacrifice fail entirely.
“She’s a great thinker. If I just met her earlier, she could have been my disciple…..” Old Man said lamentingly, which elicited a frown from Illusion Fang Lin.
“Hey old man, you should kno-” But whatever Illusion Fang Lin tried to say was interrupted by Ramsay’s laughter.
“Hahaha! You think you are all safe now? Hell no!” Ramsay then reached deep on his storage, before fishing something out.
The divine beasts’ relieved expression disappeared when they saw what was in placed in front of Ramsay.
It was a beautiful woman, who had the appearance of a seductress. Her perfect body showed off her tantalizing curves, while her black hair framed her beautiful face well.
Illusion Fang Lin let out a gulp, as he imagined only Fang Yu could match this woman in terms of appeal.
The woman was also paralyzed like them, with her body unable to move. She stared at her new place with panic, with her eyes wide from fear.
“Sigh.” Ramsay seems sad as he approached the woman. He caressed her face as he said,
“I found this woman near the Fairy Forest yesterday. When I saw her, I immediately wanted to turn her to my pleasure slave, thus the reason she was in my storage.”
He licked his lips as he seemed to be more sad.
“I plan to make her mine after the war with the Immortal Continent. But from what I can see right now, there is no way I could enjoy her. I guess this is goodbye then.” He then picked the woman up as he approached the cauldron once more.
Illusion Fang Lin cursed inwardly as he realized all that Chi Xing did was for naught. After all, this woman that Ramsay brought out was also a Divine Beast!
That means the total number of divine beasts were back to 7, making the sacrifice feasible once more!
The woman started crying, as she hovered above the cauldron.
Ramsay snickered upon seeing this as he was about to release his grip.
But before he could do that, his body trembled as he felt a powerful presence approaching!
It was not only him, but everyone in the Planet Thrae felt an instinctive fear as they looked up to the skies.
No, not just at the skies, but beyond it, at the outer space.
With their advanced vision, the Fifth Stage Practitioners, the Immortals and the Gods all saw something hilarious but also terrifying!
A monstrously large pigeon could be seen flying from space!
It was so large that the Planet Thrae could only be as large as the pigeon’s eye. Its wings were flapping up and down as it flew through the space, even though there is no air in space.
But what made the situation more terrifying was the fact that the pigeon was heading to the Planet Thrae! Even its large eyes were concentrated on the Planet Thrae itself!
A high-pitched, irritating voice then sounded out from the space pigeon, which elicited expressions of panic from everyone in the Planet Thrae.
“I’m so hungry! Time to eat!”
