The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 376
Chapter 376: Weapon of Fertility
“This guy really is irritating.” Tian Yi muttered to himself as he continued trading blows with the Fifth Stage Jotunn in front of him.
Since he always clashed with this Jotunn, Tian Yi already had a nickname for him. “Hey Magmalard, you seem to look better today!” Tian Yi shouted out to his infuriated opponent.
Magmalard roared unhappily, making it quite obvious that he was not happy with the name given to him. “Boom!” Tian Yi blocked one more attack from Magmalard, which forced him back by half a step.
“Now we’re talking.” Tian Yi let out a grin as he prepared his powerful attack. A powerful outburst of energy however forced Tian Yi to stop his preparations. “Hahahahaha!” Tian Yi let out a hysterical laugh as he saw where the outburst came from.
Rumbling sounds could be heard as the tallest structure in the city which is Magmalard’s house, began to shake.
Tian Yi could see that the barrier obstructing everyone from entering Magmalard’s house just disappeared now.
“Nice one Sir Wang Hao! Bringing you here was the right decision!” Actually, Tian Yi just brought Wang Hao with him because the Grand Elder told him to. As much as possible, Tian Yi does not want anyone except him entering the Central Divine Plane.
He just gave an exception to Wang Hao because of the Grand Elder. Deep in his heart, Tian Yi did not believe that Wang Hao would not be able to give Tian Yi any help at all. If Wang Hao can help procure the weapon, then it will be Tian Yi who will benefit from it.
If Wang Hao won’t be of any help, then Tian Yi will kill him on the spot. “Sir Wang Hao, you are lucky that you are useful now…..” Tian Yi thought as a glint flashed across his eyes.
Even if Wang Hao has the access on Magmalard’s house, Tian Yi was not worried that Wang Hao would be able to take the ‘weapon’. According to the description of his ancestors, there was something needed to ‘activate’ this weapon, and Tian Yi was sure that Wang Hao lacks this thing! As for Tian Yi, he already had this thing, as it was something passed down to him by the former Central Divine Emperor.
Because of that, Tian Yi was perfectly fine with Wang Hao seeing the ‘weapon’. After all, Wang Hao will suffer a lot if he touches the ‘weapon’. “If you try to take the weapon without the needed thing, you will die quickly!” Tian Yi snickered as his body began to glow.
Tian Yi knew that right now, he should focus his attention on delaying Magmalard. Since its home was now breachable, Magmalard will obviously rush back to his home to defend it.
Magmalard raised his arms, as he attempted to squash Wang Hao who was about to enter his home. But with Tian Yi around, Magmalard will have no way to attack Wang Hao. A formless blade, which was covered by a regal aura and countless killing intents came slashing down on Magmalard.
“Boom!” Poor Magmalard has no choice but to defend himself from the attack, effectively stopping him. “Woosh!” It was at this moment that Wang Hao disappeared, as he successfully entered the once unbreachable place. “Why are you targeting someone like him? Are you perhaps forgetting about me? That hurts my feelings you know. I think you deserve some punishment!” Tian Yi began to attack with increasing intensity and savagery that Magmalard had no choice but to fight back.
“Now its done!” Wang Hao looked at his finished product. It was an assortment of 144 runes, all engraved on the ground. They followed a 12×12 arrangement, making the whole rune assortment to look like a square.
Wang Hao clenched his trembling hands, swearing to himself that starting from this moment, he will never engrave a rune again. “Well, its not half-bad.” Old Man muttered as he stared at Wang Hao’s runes. “The truth is that most of your runes look so bad that they should not be able to be functional.
But your perfect energy manipulation allowed these half-assed runes to work. Huhuhu, why are you the one with that ability? If I have this one, then maybe creating a 10th Rank Rune will be a possibility!”
“Shut up Old Man.” Wang Hao muttered angrily as he stared at his creation at the ground. “So what should I do now?”
“Inject some qi or mana, and that should be it.” Wang Hao nodded as he proceeded on doing it.
“Hong!” The first rune let out a glow as Wang Hao’s mana activated it. “Hong. Hong. Hong. Hong…..”
The connection of the first rune with the other runes sparked a chain reaction, causing the other runes to also glow.
“…….” Wang Hao felt that the mana energy inside him was being drained as more and more of the runes were activated. “Weng!” A light beam burst out of the runes, which flew out of the ground and collided with the shield created by the Rune of Shielding. “Boom!” The shield collapsed, as if it could not resist the power of the light beam.
Wang Hao’s mouth dropped open, as he could not believe that it actually worked. “Hmph, so you are just believing me now? Tsk, tsk, youngsters these days!” Old Man seemed to be angry, but Wang Hao could detect a condescending tone in Old Man’s voice.
“Fine, fine, your skills are really impeccable.” Wang Hao replied unenthusiastically.
“Then what are you waiting for!” Enter the house now!” Old Man seemed to be extremely excited to look inside, which made Wang Hao suspicious.
“Say Old Man, do you know the weapon that Tian Yi was talking about? It seems like you are pretty excited to see it.”
“You really know it!” If Wang Hao could just shake Old Man right now, he would have already done it. “Come on, tell me what this weapon is! Who knows, you and I might die if I handle the weapon incorrectly.”
“Well…” Old Man averted his eyes as he tried to not look at Wang Hao directly. “I have some suspicions, but it will only be confirmed once I see it.”
“Ugh fine, so I just have to get near the weapon, and you will know its type. Is that what you are saying?” Wang Hao said as he entered the house.
“Exactly. So just approach the weapon, and I will tell you all bout it details.” “Got it.” Wang Hao then disappeared as he employed his teleportation. “Ping ping ping ping ping ping….”
Wang Hao did not stop spamming his teleportation as he continued to go onward. “Hmm?” With his energy sense, Wang Hao could definitely feel it.
There was a powerful energy source just at the far end of the house. “Hmmm… so the majority of this house must have been occupied by that Fifth Stage Jotunn, and the weapon was kept at the back. How lax.” Wang Hao muttered as he continued teleporting.
“Well, that Jotunn was pretty confident with the Rune of Shielding, and he should be. It was just his bad luck that I, Y- ehem, Old Man, managed to see these runes!”
“Hey, you almost said your name Old Man. Be careful with how you boast. Even Fang Lin thoroughly defeats you in that aspect.” Wang Hao snickered as Old Man floundered in fury.
“Dong!” Wang Hao had to stop his teleportation as he felt that he already approached the far end of the house.
“Eh?” Wang Hao tilted his head as he looked at the supposedly ‘powerful weapon’ in front of him. “Is this really a scary weapon? Aside from the powerful energy that I could feel from it, there is nothing else!”
“……..” If someone else besides Old Man was with Wang Hao, they could have believed what he said. But Old Man was different.
Old Man’s voice turned grave as he slowly talked to Wang Hao. “Whatever you do, do not touch that thing in front of you. Go back slowly, and do not attempt to take it.”
“Huh?” Wang Hao tilted his head, but he complied with what Old Man said. After all, this was the first time that Wang Hao heard Old Man becoming serious. Once he was ten steps away from the weapon, Wang Hao began questioning Old Man. “First of all, can you explain to me on how can a small egg be so dangerous?” That’s right, the ‘powerful weapon’ that Wang Hao saw which also made Old Man turn serious was actually a small egg.
This egg was surrounded by countless runes, which were all glowing. The runes seemed to be absorbing the energy around them, turning it into an abundant life energy which was greedily devoured by the egg. Now that Wang Hao could sense it, he could feel that the egg was slightly throbbing, as if the egg was about wanted to break. But no matter how much the egg throbbed, there seems to be no signs of impeding breakage.
“Wang Hao, could you let me vent off some of my rage right now?” Old Man said as he seemed to be slowly losing it.
“Huh? What do you mean by tha-” Wang Hao’s query was cut short when Old Man suddenly let out an angry roar.
Old Man seemed to have turned crazy as he started spouting out words in an angry manner.
“WHAT THE HELL IS THIS! HOW COULD THIS… MONSTROSITY BE HERE! I THOUGHT HE WAS ALREADY FINSIHED AFTER THOR KILLED HIM… AH, THIS IS A GREAT MESS!!! YGGDRASIL IS SO FKED NOW, YGGDRASIL IS SO FKED NOW…..” Old Man seemed to have been broken as he just continued muttering incoherent words.
“Hey, snap out of it!” Wang Hao’s roar erupted, managing to shake Old Man out of his stupor. “I do not know how you feel, but can you please explain why are you afraid of this egg? Even just a small explanation will do.”
“….” Old Man took a deep breath as he tried to compose himself. Sounds of the battle outside could be heard by Wang Hao was he waited for Old Man’s mental state to recover.
“Okay then.” Old Man shook his head as he started to talk.
“Just like what we knew, the 9 galaxies inside Yggdrasil are still experiencing Ragnarok even right now. Wang Hao, you must think that it was unnatural that even until now, Ragnarok was still not done. The reason for that was because there are some things required to end Ragnarok!”
Old Man’s gaze was then concentrated on the small egg as he continued talking. “You see that small egg in front of you? Inside that egg is one of the things that could end Ragnarok at the expense of countless lives.”
“What is inside that egg?” Wang Hao asked, realizing that it was the creature inside the egg that made Old Man this scared.
“The creature inside the egg…. is Jörmungandr, the Midgard Serpent!
