The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 396
Chapter 396: More and More Benefits
What happened next was one of the most agonizing moments of Fang Yu’s life.
The pain was already too much for Fang Yu that she wanted to just give up and make the pain go away.
But remembering about her dream to be the strongest, Fang Yu bit her lips until they began to bleed.
“Something like this won’t be enough to shatter my determination! Ha!!!!”
Fang Yu’s body trembled as slowly but surely, she continued tearing off a part of her soul.
“Rip….” Fang Yu’s body began to sweat uncontrollably as Fang Yu became stuck on what she was doing for half an hour.
By this point, Fang Yu’s consciousness was close to collapsing due to the extreme pain and her severely deficient Spiritual Power.
And then it happened.
A satisfying sound was produced as an extremely small portion of Fang Yu’s original soul was successfully separated from her original soul.
Fang Yu had to stop herself from moaning in relief as she finished the soul tearing process.
The pain that was plaguing Fang Yu earlier disappeared right after she obtained this soul fragment.
The disappearance of pain was so abrupt that it felt so good…
“Yeah, that felt good…” Fang Yu muttered as she looked at her final product.
Looking at her original soul, Fang Yu saw that it was missing a small chunk at its lower-right side, coinciding exactly at the portion of the imaginary paper that Fang Yu tore off earlier.
When she gave it a closer look, Fang Yu saw that the missing chunk was recovering slowly. Upon seeing this, Fang Yu realized that her soul was so powerful that it can recover by itself automatically as long as Fang Yu gives it time to recover.
Fang Yu then looked at the portion of the soul she obtained, which was floating just beside her original soul.
It looked extremely insignificant compared to her original soul, but Fang Yu knew that this will be the ticket to her survival.
By this point, Fang Yu had thoroughly applied the concepts of Duality on the Ice and Fire Essence, creating a singular essence inside her body that is called the Ice-Fire Essence.
Using the remains of her Spiritual Power, Fang Yu dragged the soul fragment and brought it into the midst of the Ice-Fire Essence.
“Woosh!!!” The soul portion was like a starving beast as it hastily absorbed the Ice-Fire Essence around it.
“No s**t, it really is growing!” Fang Yu watched with wide eyes as she saw the soul fragment growing in size as it absorbed more and more Ice-Fire Essence.
Not only that, but the soul fragment started to assume a humanoid shape as it grew in size.
What made Fang Yu amazed was that the soul fragment was looking more and more similar to Fang Yu as time passed by!
After exactly 5 minutes, the soul fragment had devoured all of the Ice-Fire Essence fed into it.
“……..” Fang Yu was silent as she observed the new form of the soul fragment in from of her.
After absorbing all those Ice-Fire Essence, the soul fragment did not look like just a chunk of soul.
The soul fragment was now shaped like a human, with human-like features seen on its body.
Its size was around the size of a palm, and it was assuming a cross-legged position inside Fang Yu’s body.
And just like what Fang Yu expected, this soul now looked just like her, with their height as the difference.
In short, this soul fragment became a miniature version of Fang Yu.
This new soul’s body looked golden and white at the same time, indicating that its body was made up of the Ice-Fire Essence.
Fang Yu instinctively knew that anything that approaches this new soul will both feel the scalding heat of the Fire Essence and the chilling cold of the Ice Essence.
“Hahaha, I did it!” Fang Yu cackled in laughter as she saw knew that she definitely succeeded right now.
She just created her 1st Nascent Soul, the Ice-Fire Nascent Soul!
While Fang Yu was extremely jubilant of her success, she suddenly felt another satisfying sensation invading her body.
“Hehehe…. my bet has paid off!” Fang Yu muttered happily as she realized that this sensation was caused by a sudden increase of her Spiritual Power.
Even without using any deductive logic, Fang Yu knew that this sharp increase of her Spiritual Power was caused by the addition of the Ice-Fire Nascent Soul!
With her Spiritual Power recovered, Fang Yu can continue Smelting her cores!
“Hmph, I can just observe my Ice-Fire Nascent Soul later. Right now, I have to finish Smelting!”
Even if Fang Yu was extremely jubilant on the creation of her Ice-Fire Nascent Soul, she knew where her priorities lay right now, and that is on her successfully Smelting her cores!
“Tsk, now that I have more Spiritual Power inside me, I know I can finish Smelting.” Fang Yu muttered as she returned her attention back to the remaining 4 puddles of molten cores that she left earlier.
“Its time for you guys to yield!” Fang Yu muttered as this time, she increased the rate of the temperature decrease of her Pure Yin Cosmic Ice.
With the increase in her Spiritual Power and newfound determination that she found, Fang Yu was able to easily complete the Smelting Process.
Minutes later and a slightly exhausted Fang Yu let out some pants as she took a look at her 13 cores, now all sparkling brightly inside her dantian.
Because of the careful way that Fang Yu handled the freezing aspect of the smelting, Fang Yu was able to solidify all her cores back on a perfect crystalline arrangement!
Fang Yu was at loss for words as she realized that even she was not sure how strong she was now.
“Boom!” While Fang Yu was thinking these things, all her 13 cores suddenly let out a dazzling glow which covered the entirety of her dantian.
“This is the sign of the completion of the Tempering Major Realm!”
At the Third Stage, there are 3 Major Realms, with each Major Realm having 3 Sub-Realms under them.
Fang Yu just completed her first 3 Sub-Realms which meant that she also completed the Tempering Major Realm!
According to some of the cultivation manuals that she read, every completion of every Major Realm will be accompanied by a sort of rebirth of the practitioner’s power, and in some occasions, even a special ability.
Fang Yu looked at the glowing cores, wanting to see what benefits she will get for completing the Tempering Major Realm.
But after waiting for few more minutes, Fang Yu realized that the ‘reward’ she will supposedly get will not just appear now.
“From the looks of it, it will take around 30 minutes to 2 hours before my cores complete their rebirth.” Fang Yu thought, seeing that the glow of her cores won’t go away that quickly.
“Well I can still wait later, I can just focus on other things for now.”
Fang Yu knew with the time she spent on her current breakthroughs, there won’t be enough time for her to make additional breakthroughs.
“In my estimates, it will take around 2 hours until the spaceship arrives in Solomon’s location.” Fang Yu muttered as she gave an interested look at her Ice-Fire Nascent Soul.
“Hmph, I underwent great pains just to create you. I hope you won’t disappoint me.” Fang Yu said as she started to establish a connection with the Ice-Fire Nascent Soul.
The Ice-Fire Nascent Soul did not offer any resistance as it allowed Fang Yu to freely control it.
Fang Yu knew that it will be impossible for the Ice-Fire Nascent won’t reject her. After all, this Ice-Fire Nascent Soul was something created from her Original Soul.
“Hahaha, this technique really is good…” Fang Yu felt that the creation of the Ice-Fire Nascent Soul definitely increased her battle prowess.
After all, this Ice-Fire Nascent Soul that Fang Yu created can be comparable to a soul of an Early Fourth Stage Practitioner!
That makes the powerful souls inside Fang Yu to be around 3 now, with her Yin Soul and her Yang Soul joining in the fray!
There are many benefits that Fang Yu gained with the appearance of the Ice-Fire Nascent Soul.
Having an additional soul will make it easier for Fang Yu to channel her techniques and it will also reduce the burden that Fang Yu experiences every time she uses the ‘Dual Soul Domain’!
Not only that, but Fang Yu can also use this Ice-Fire Nascent Soul to remotely attack her opponents.
Since it was made up of Ice-Fire, Fang Yu knew that this Ice-Fire Nascent Soul can use techniques related to the concept of Ice-Fire.
In a battle against numerous opponents, this ability of the Ice-Fire Nascent Soul to fight can reduce the burden on Fang Yu.
But the thing that made Fang Yu the most giddy was the fact that she already got this benefit from just 1 Nascent Soul!
What would happened once she creates her 2nd Nascent Soul? Her 3rd? Her 4th? Her 5th? Or something even more than 5?
Even Fang Yu was not sure, so she can only wait for the day that it will happen!
After inspecting the Ice-Fire Nascent Soul and making sure that nothing bad will happen to her cores, Fang Yu opened her eyes as she stood up shakily.
Now that she was done with her breakthrough process, she will spend the rest of her time on resting and recovering from her mental and physical exhaustion.
Fang Yu knew that being hasty right now will just be detrimental for her. Having her condition at the peak state before meeting Solomon was Fang Yu’s prime goal now.
Fang Yu massaged her sore shoulders as she let out a shout.
“Hey Genie, let me out of here now! I am done with my breakthrough, and I want to just rest in the ship! Resting here in your Mist Room… seems like not a good idea to me.”
While Fang Yu was waiting for Genie to pick her up, she suddenly remembered the weird sensation that she was sure came from the ship.
“What is that thing that I felt earlier? Well, if that thing is still in the spaceship right now, then I will be able to see it too.”
Fang Yu’s surroundings then blurred as she was brought out of the Mist Room.
Once Fang Yu’s body appeared inside the spaceship, she saw something that rendered her almost speechless.
Fang Yu’s finger were slightly trembling as she pointed at what she was seeing in front of her. Her lips were quivering as she slowly said,
“What… the hell is that?”
