The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 39
Chapter 39: Low-Key
Wang Hao knew that at this moment, he just had to do nothing. With this, he hoped that Tang Ya might change her mind.
He then fondly remembered about his ‘wife’. The truth is, it was an arranged marriage. They had been forced to marry each other. Because of this, Wang Hao’s life of fornication was cut short. How could he not? The father of his wife was at the Peak Ninth Stage! If Wang Hao dares to be in a relationship with another girl, his father-in-law will strike him down!
But after his imprisonment, Wang Hao felt that the seal on his forehead had been hiding him from the intense searching of his wife’s clan. That was then he thought that maybe he could relive his playboy life. But as of now, he still fears to have an affair. This then led to him having a lot a pent-up s*xual tension that he can only relieve through some perverted statements and actions. He also employs the help of his ‘magic hand’.
He just prayed to himself that Tang Ya will either forget him or that she becomes really strong. Though he still felt bad to be treated like an item…
Venomshade looked towards Tang Ya and Fang Lin. At the start of the selection, their strengths were almost similar. But now, Fang Lin and Xiao Ya experienced advancements in their cultivation bases. Venomshade then gritted his teeth and was about to say something when he heard Wang Hao speaking first.
“You are worried that if you train off by yourself that you will compromise your team? Haha do not worry! Even if your team does nothing for this remaining week, you will still pass this round given the amount of cards you consumed.” He then added with a smirk. “Do not also worry about them attacking us now. They have clearly seen 50 groups led by Zhou Rougue get defeated here. I am sure that no one of them will dare fighting against a group that defeated that alliance.”
“And if they ever attack….. ” Wang Hao said slowly. “We run!”
“Run? You will not fight for us?”
“Fight for you? Idiot! That’s an emergency! I am not even supposed to be here! And I cannot afford to just wipe out the memories of everyone I meet! That’s why at this moment, if we see a large group attacking us, we run!”
Wang Hao then looked at Venomshade and said. “I know you want to advance your cultivation base. Do not worry and do your thing here. Tang Ya and Fang Lin will also train themselves here. If anything ever happens, I will immediately inform all of you.”
Upon hearing that, Venomshade sighed in relief. You can say that he has the same level of talent as Tang Ya, its just that he focuses more on the art of poison brewing than on improving the mana circulation on his body.
As of now, he is at the Mid Mana Circulation Stage. That means he has his poison mana integrated with his blood vessels, skin and bone. He only needs to integrate his poison mana with his muscles, internal organs and his Dantian to reach the Peak Mana Circulation Stage.
There is only a week remaining until the start of the final stage of the exam. Venomshade has to raise his strength as high as possible within this timespan. He asked Wang Hao if he owns a large cauldron. Wang Hao nodded, reaching out to the black space that appeared in front of him, and then he pulled out a large cauldron.
Aside from his fighting abilities, the removal of one petal from the seal also loosened Wang Hao’s restriction on his Space-Time Gyroscope. As of now, he can store and extract larger objects in his space pocket. He was also able to use ‘Teleportation’. But the distance he could teleport as of now is just limited to around 10 meters around him.
Upon seeing the cauldron, Venomshade just kept his mouth shut. He then proceeded to light a flame underneath the cauldron. He then put water into the cauldron until it is 3/4 full. After doing that, he asked for Wang Hao to let out all the poisonous herbs he collected in the forest. Venomshade cannot keep it with himself, so he had Wang Hao keep it on his space pocket.
A multitude of poisonous plants appeared, exuding an intimidating presence. Venomshade then put some of this poison herbs in the cauldron and waited. Once the water started boiling, Venomshade jumped inside the cauldorn .
Venomshade felt the poisonous compounds floating in the water. He then willed himself to absorb it. By abosrbing poison into his own body. Venomshade can drastically quicken the integaration of his poison mana. The problem with this method is that once the absorbed poison surpasses the capacity of the practitioner, the practitioner will be poisoned to death.
Venomshade knows that his tolerance for poison is high, so he decided to go with it. Minutes later, the water regained its normal color. Venomshade then turned to Wang Hao and said “Once you see the water becoming clear, please add more poison herbs. I will continue doing this until the end of the week!”
While Venomshade was about to start his training, Fang Yu was busy playing with Tang Li.
“Yey! Yey!” Tang Li happily flew around Fang Yu’s room as Fang Yu conjured snow from her hands. The little Tang Li happily caught the falling snow as she giggled in delight.
“Moar Sis! Moar!”
Fang Yu could not help but marvel at Tang Li’s intelligence. She was only one years old yet she can already understand and follow adults. And it seems like her intelligence is just increasing.
“Li’er, where are your parents? I did not expect them to leave you here.”
“Parensh?” Tang Li tilted her head as she continued. “They shaid they will be bushy.”
“Do you know what they did?”
“Yesh I know Sis! The window ish open, sho I look. I shaw Baldy play with Mom! Baldy move hips too fasht!”
Poor Tang Lin and Li Daozi! They will surely be horrified if they knew Tang Li had seen their ‘playtime’!”
Fang Yu just sighed and continued letting out some snowflakes.
And so then started Venomshade’s torturous power-up. A week passed and a gaunt, pale figure climbed out of the cauldron.
“Ha! I did it!”
The Venomshade that Fang Lin sees right now may look pale, but his body lets out a baleful aura. Venomshade as of this moment succeeded on integrating his poison mana on his muscles and internal organs! He only needed to integrate his poison mana on his dantian to reach the Peak Mana Circulation Stage!
It was at that moment that they heard the sound of bells tolling in the zoo.
The second stage of the selection has ended!
Wang Hao looked up from the erotic book he was reading. “Hmm.. it seems like I and Boner needs to hide already.” He then looked at Fang Lin. “Please be low-key at the selection ok?”
“What do you mean master?”
Actually, the reason why Wang Hao was worried about the fierce competition is not about Fang Lin not succeeding. Wang Hao knew that Fang Lin can enter the top 5 with his current abilities. That is Wang Hao’s problem though. Fang Lin’s ability to enter the top 5.
He whispered to Fang Lin “If you get apprenticed by an elder, your bloodline might be discovered. We cannot afford that risk! It’e better to be accepted as an Outer Disciple. Then we will ascend to the peak together!” Wang Hao stared directly at Fang Lin. “Stay LOW-KEY. Ok?”
But the truth is, this is just the minor reason why Wang Hao does not want Fang Lin to be in top 5.
He thought to himself “If my disciple gets apprenticed by a sect elder, that elder might steal my disciple! As of now, Fang Lin is still satisfied with me. But what if that elder seduces him with cultivation resources? Or even with beautiful females! I cannot let that happen!”
“Not only that, I am sure he will act all smug around me, an Outer Disciple, once he is apprenticed to an elder. I AM HIS MASTER. He must be loyal to me!”
Wang Hao looked again at Fang Lin.
