The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 397
Chapter 397: Growing Up
“What the hell?” That was all that Fang Yu could think about as she saw the spectacle in front of her.
She saw both Andromeda and Genie in front of her, giving Fang Yu a strained smile.
Both of there were fine, as Fang Yu could not detect any abnormalities in these two.
But the same cannot be said on Tang Li.
“Sis, look at me! Tang Li grew up!” Tang Li said as her long, silky hair swished behind her while she bobbed her head side by side happily.
She twirled her body as she approached the befuddled Fang Yu.
“Sis, look! Tang Li’s head reaches Sis’ waist!” Tang Li exclaimed as the top of her head collided with Fang Yu’s waist.
“How… how did you just suddenly grow up?”
Fang Yu exclaimed, seeing that the Tang Li in front of her was no longer a baby, but an 8 year-old child!
What Fang Yu basically saw was that Tang Li’s body changed from a baby to a small girl!
Gone were the small body, chubby cheeks, and the baby talk of Tang Li.
What Tang Li looked like now was a girl with a thin body, glowing skin and long black hair reaching the floor. Her eyes were glowing playfully while her hands were slowly inching towards Fang Yu.
Tang Li still had the mischievous smile on her face, reminding Fang Yu that just like before, the grown-up Tang Li will always be up to no good.
Just like before, Tang Li’s was still adorable, so much so that Fang Yu wanted to just cuddle the bigger Tang Li right now.
“Muuu… Sis, Tang Li does not like that look.” Tang Li muttered as she saw the glint in Fang Yu’s eyes.
“Pit pat, pit pat.” The sounds of Tang Li’s footsteps echoed as she retreated, eyeing Fang Yu with a slightly wary look.
“What’s the matter Tang Li?” Fang Yu asked as she feigned being hurt. “You always have slept in my bosom or above my head before. Why don’t you want your Sis to hug you now?”
“Don’t wanna.” Tang Li pouted as she glared at Fang Yu.
The transformation of Tang Li’s body gave Tang Li more varieties to express her emotions like the glare that she just gave to Fang Yu.
“Ugh!” The emotions that Tang Li showed was so exquisite that Fang Yu was hurt by the glare that Tang Li gave her.
“Sis, you are still not giving me the milk that you promised!” Tang Li pouted as her eyes were slowly concentrated of Fang Yu’s plump bosom.
“Now that Tang Li is bigger, she needs more milk from Sis!”
“Wait wait wait, hold up!” Fang Yu raised her hands, stopping Tang Li from ‘ravaging’ Fang Yu.
“Before you think about drinking my milk, can you explain first what happened to you that made you like this?”
“Muuu….” Tang Li pouted as she unwillingly removed her gaze away from Fang Yu’s milk machines. Fang Yu heaved a slight sigh of relief after seeing this.
But that relief disappeared when Tang Li said,
“Sis, I will tell what happened if you will give me milk after I talked!”
“Gah!” Fang Yu did not expect that even now, Tang Li still seemed to still be a cunning person.
Fang Yu looked at Genie and Andromeda asking for help, but what she only got from the 2 was,
“Well, we have to know what happened to The Great Tang Li. Who knows, maybe what happened to her was actually dangerous to her. As much as possible, we need to know it quickly.” Genie said as she covered her mouth, presumably trying not to show her smile.
Andromeda on the other hand, just gave Fang Yu a withering look as she said,
“Well, you just have to feed Tang Li milk later. You already fed Tang Li many times before, so feeding her now won’t be that difficult.”
“But but but….” Fang Yu spluttered as she pointed at Tang Li. “She’s much bigger now! How the hell can I feed her if she is like that now?”
“Well Tang Li does not sound that different to me.” Andromeda said as she patted Tang Li’s head. “Only her body changed, not her personality. So, I think you should not have any problems feeding her.”
“Hehehe….” Tang Li giggled, apparently liking the head patting that she receives.
She gave a hopeful look to Fang Yu, who let out a defeated sigh.
“Ok fine, I will pat your head and feed you milk later.” Fang Yu said as she proceeded to pat Tang Li’s head.
“Yay!” Tang Li tittered as she stayed still, enjoying the sensation of Fang Yu patting her head. “Sis is the best!”
“… Just get talking already.” Fang Yu said weakly. “We do not have much time left before meeting Solomon.”
“Kay…” Tang Li said as Fang Yu stopped patting her head.
Tang Li gave one more look at Fang Yu’s milk machines before she started talking.
“Sis, do you remember that Tang Li absorbed the energy of this planet to heal you? It seems like not all of those energy were absorbed by you. Some of them went inside Tang Li’s body, and that what transformed Tang Li!”
“Yeah, I think that is the most definite reason.” Fang Yu muttered, remembering what happened earlier.
Fang Yu was severely injured after her fight with Beleth, and she had to recover from her injuries quickly.
Tang Li came to her rescue at that time, with that baby using her Planet Devouring abilities to absorb the energy of the Goddess’ Planet and passing this energy directly to Fang Yu.
Tang Li was lucky at that time, as Solomon seems to be occupied with his injuries, which allowed Tang Li to freely absorb the energy earlier.
Tang Li did not dare to absorb any planet energy for now, as it seemed like Solomon was sane again.
But from what Tang Li just admitted to Fang Yu, it looks like some of the energy absorbed by Tang Li stayed inside her body!
From what Fang Yu remembered, Planet Devourers like Tang Li has to devour planets and their essence to nourish themselves.
Fang Yu was not sure on how much planets Tang Li should devour, she just knew that they needed to devour some.
So it will be entirely plausible that Tang Li’s body changed after Tang Li devoured some of this planet’s energy.
But now that begs more questions.
If Tang Li continues devouring more and more, will she continue changing? How much will she need to change? Will there even be and end to it?
“Muuu…” Tang Li pouted as she saw her Sis frowning like this.
“Hey, I am just wondering if you will still change if you devour more” Fang Yu hastily replied to appease the fuming Tang Li. “You know… I already want to be prepared when the time comes that you will be older than me.”
A mental image of a teenage Fang Yu and a middle-aged Tang Li flashed across everyone’s mind, and it made them slightly wince.
“Muuu…” Tang Li gave Fang Yu a withering look, showing that she was not happy with what her Sis just said.
“Sis, the next time that Tang Li will grow will be after Tang Li devours the whole Goddess Planet! If Tang Li does not devour this whole planet, then Tang Li will not grow!”
“Is that so…” Fang Yu, Genie, and Andromeda all heaved sighs of relief after hearing this.
At least right now Fang Yu does not have to worry about a baby looking more mature and older than her.
“Hey Tang Li,” Fang Yu asked as she continued patting Tang Li’s head. “Did anything else aside from you body changed after you devoured those energies?”
Tang Li gave Fang Yu a fervent nod before replying,
“Sis, Tang Li became more intelligent, and Tang Li also became a Peak Qi Condensation Cultivator!”
Fang Yu could already accept that Tang Li’s intelligence have increased, though it seems like it is still not apparent now.
What Fang Yu could not believe was the fact that Tang Li just went from a normal baby to a Peak Qi Condensation Practitioner!
If what Tang Li said was true, then she literally skipped over Body Refinement Stage and went straight to the peak of the First Stage!
Fang Yu quickly touched Tang Li’s pulse as she used her divine sense to inspect Tang Li’s body.
Upon some inspections, she saw that Tang Li really had a dantian inside her body, and it was filled to the brim with Tang Li’s qi!
“Oh god, it really happened.” Fang Yu muttered as she gave a helpless look to Genie.
Genie let out a cough after seeing Fang Yu’s slight shock.
“Fang Yu, you should know that planet devourers needed to consume more and more planets to sustain their lives and to strengthen themselves. If they want to get stronger, they have to devour more and more planet. What you just saw now was normal.”
Since she was already tired of contradicting other people, Fang Yu just decided to accept what was told to her.
“Muuu… Sis, did Tang Li make Sis angry?” Tang Li asked with tears pooling on her eyes. “I do not want Sis to be sad!”
“No! I was just surprised and happy for you Tang Li.” Fang Yu smoothly said as she assured the sad Tang Li.
“Yay!” Tang LI let out a happy laugh as she slowly approached Fang Yu.
“Sis, you remembered that you promised Tang Li one thing earlier right?”
“Oh wait, what is that again?” Fang Yu said as she felt that Tang Li was becoming more and more predatory right now.
“You said you will give Tang Li milk!”
“Oh f-” Fang Yu’s words were cut off as the excited Tang Li leapt towards Fang Yu, managing to make her sit of the sofa.
“Milk milk milk!” Tang Li chanted these words like a prayer as her ‘evil paws’ reached out towards Fang Yu’s bosom.
“Sigh.” Fang Yu let out a defeated sigh, knowing that she had no way out now.
“Drink lots, you need to be full before we face Solomon later.”
While Fang Yu’s ship was being dragged inside the Goddess Planet, there was a certain object at the surface of the Goddess’ Planet that attracted the attention of people near it.
This object was letting out a golden glow that was actually intensifying every second. The people who saw this became entranced, as the golden glow looked so beautiful and ethereal in their eyes. They slowly approached it, wanting to see what was causing the object to become like this.
But in no time at all, the people nearby had to go away from the glowing object as the golden glow became more and more intense.
But even if they were scared by the glow, they were not scared of the object at all, as this object was one of the relics of their Goddess that she left when she disappeared.
This object was a set of 3 rings looped with each other, with each ring having a different color.
If Wang Hao was here, he will know that this object was, as this object was in his possession!
