The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 407
Chapter 407: Some of the Cardinal Directions
The white humanoid inwardly was feeling extremely pleased with the suffering that Fang Yu was feeling now.
Even though the white humanoid was just an aspect of Solomon’s power, it can still feel some emotions, just like how the skeletal horses earlier felt excited on killing Fang Yu.
The white humanoid felt a kind of sadistic pleasure upon seeing Fang Yu about to collapse in front of it.
“Fang Yu… you think you had me figured out already? Heh, I am just one of Solomon’s varying attacks! Even if you defeat me, more of Solomon’s attacks will come. Well, that is if you defeat me.”
The white humanoid relished what he was seeing as it contemplated on how long Fang Yu could still last.
“Just how far should Fang Yu be from me before she gets killed by my ‘Control?” The white humanoid mused as it slowly raised its right foot to take its next step.
The white humanoid knew that its ‘Control’ ability to push things down will get stronger the nearer Fang Yu is to him.
But even if it can get nearer to Fang Yu, the white humanoid did not rush approaching her, as the white humanoid was also experiencing the same thing as Fang Yu.
The white humanoid was also being pushed down by its own ‘Control’ ability. After all, its ‘Control’ ability is to push down things inside a region of space around the white humanoid.
No matter what object, person or beings are in that region of space, they will be affected by the ‘Control’ ability,
The white humanoid is no exception, as it is also inside that region of space, making it also affected by its own ‘Control’ ability.
And since the white humanoid is technically at the center of this region of space, the white humanoid is experiencing the strongest ‘Push Down’ effect of its ‘Control’ Ability.
It was a good thing for the white humanoid that its body was built in a way that can reduce the effect of its own ability.
Around 80% of the pressure hitting the white humanoid disappears because of the way its body was built. This allows the white humanoid to be able to somehow move even under immense pressures.
But even with its body protecting it, the white humanoid still had difficulties on moving, as its body was still extremely heavy right now.
That was the reason why it did not immediately approach Fang Yu. Thus, it could only settle on slowly approaching her.
Besides, Solomon told the white humanoid that Fang Yu is one slick practitioner.
Who knows, Fang Yu might have something prepared for the white humanoid once it gets near her.
So to prevent that from happening, the white humanoid decided to slowly crush Fang Yu with its ability until she was injured so much that she will find it hard to move.
Only when the white humanoid was sure of this that it will approach Fang Yu more.
With that decision, the white humanoid stopped itself from taking its next step.
Instead, the white humanoid just stayed still on the spot as it watched fang Yu getting pushed down more by its ability.
“Why don’t you just give up now? There is no way that you can leave with your partners here, so just lay down and accept your fate!” The white humanoid said as it tried to weaken Fang Yu’s fighting spirit.
“Come on, you just have to relax your limbs, and all of this will be done! How hard can that be?”
But Fang Yu seemed to be unfazed with that the white humanoid said as she continued on resisting the pressure.
The white humanoid shook its head, clearly disappointed with what it was seeing. It clenched its fists lightly, as if it was testing how its fist would feel once it hits Fang Yu’s pretty face.
“Since you are a stubborn one, then I shall take it to myself to discipline you!” The white humanoid then took its 9th step, and it already saw its effects instantaneously.
“Blergh!” Fang Yu continued vomiting more blood as her blood was forced down to the ground while her body vainly attempted to stay up.
But that resistance did not last as her limbs gave out, and her body fell face-first on the ground.
In face of that powerful pressure, not even Fang Yu who was wearing her Red Martial Aura was able to resist it.
The white humanoid nodded in approval upon seeing that Fang Yu was now technically, incapacitated.
“Now this makes killing you easier.”
Right now, the white humanoid was just 3 steps away from Fang Yu.
At this distance, any kind of long-range attacks will not work, as they will be forced down to the ground.
This gives the white humanoid only 1 way to kill Fang Yu, and it was by attacking her with a powerful close-range attack.
“Because I am just a part of Solomon’s power, I am actually not complete.” The white humanoid muttered as it took the 10th step.
“Boom!” Fang Yu’s body began to sink by a cm as the ground beneath her almost could not contain her weight.
“My only power is this ‘Control;’ Ability. Well, you can include my tough body in that list.” The white humanoid then took its 11th step, not allowing Fang Yu to have a breather.
This time, a 1-meter deep crater was created, with Fang Yu at its very center. This just signifies the extreme pressure that Fang Yu is experiencing now!
Genie and Andromeda were lucky as they were 10 steps away from Fang Yu, sparing them from what Fang Yu was experiencing now.
The white humanoid did not let Fang Yu acclimate to her current state as it took its 12th step which brought it in front of Fang Yu.
This time, it was a 10-meter deep crater that was formed.
The white humanoid let out an annoyed tsk after it saw that Fang Yu was still alive with all that happened to her.
“You really are a tough one, I give you that.” The white humanoid drawled as it raised its left hand above Fang Yu.
Its left hand morphed, changing its form.
Now it looked like a very sharp knife, and its sharp tip was pointing below at Fang Yu’s head!
“What do you think will happen once I plunge this down?” The white humanoid mused as its knife-form left hand began to slowly dip towards Fang Yu’s head.
“I am sure you will be a goner once I plunge this!”
But before the white humanoid could stab Fang Yu’s head, he suddenly heard a voice right just below him.
“I thought that it will take you longer before you approach me. But now that you are in front of me, I am never letting you go!”
Astonishingly, it was Fang Yu’s voice that the white humanoid heard!
“Impossible!” The white humanoid thought as it looked at Fang Yu incredulously. “With the pressure she is in right now, moving, even talking is fairly impossible!”
“Is this an illusion?” The white humanoid looked around as fear began to grow in it.
The white humanoid was extremely wary of illusions, as it is one of the things that can affect the white humanoid mentally.
The white humanoid knew that if it was caught by an illusion, it will be game over for him already. If the white humanoid was caught in an illusion, the effects of his ‘Control’ ability will disappear and he can be easily killed!
“An illusion? Heh, this is no illusion!”
And then to the disbelief of the white humanoid, Fang Yu, who lay flat on the floor, suddenly stood up, casually dusting off the dirt that was caught in her dress.
“Wait… This is impossible! You cannot do that!” The white humanoid exclaimed as it pointed its knife hand to Fang Yu. “I get it… I am inside an illusion now, right?”
“Nope…” Fang Yu shook her head, looking somewhat disappointed with what the white humanoid said.
She stretched her body as she slowly approached the white humanoid.
“Actually, I realized what your ability was about earlier. I knew that to defeat you, I must affect you mentally so that the effects of your ‘Control’ will disappear. So, I thought of trying to put you in an illusion. But as it turns out, I do not need to put you in an illusion anymore!”
Fang Yu then let out a laugh as she said.
“Just right after your last step, I suddenlygained an enlightenment! Because of this enlightenment, I realized I do not need to attack you mentally with illusions. After all, this enlightenment allowed me to shrug off the effects of your ability!”
“Enlightenment?” From the way that Fang Yu talked, it seems like she was telling the truth. Adding the fact that she can move freely inside the white humanoid’s ‘Control’ ability, and her enlightenment seems legitimate!
“…..” The white humanoid then trembled as it realized where it went wrong.
By allowing Fang Yu to experience that pressure for a long amount of time, it pushed Fang Yu to the limits, allowing her to gain an enlightenment!
“Tsk, I forgot that Fang Yu is one talented person. Comprehending something in the middle of the fight is actually possible for her.” The white humanoid shook its head, realizing that it lost already.
Fang Yu was now immune on the effects of his ‘Control’ ability, allowing her to move freely right now! There was no way for the white humanoid to win, as its only power was now ineffective against Fang Yu!
The white humanoid let out a defeated sigh as it asked Fang Yu,
“Fine, it seems like you take this round. But before you attack me, can you tell me first the enlightenment that you gained?”
“Um… well maybe I can tell you. After all it was you who helped me comprehend this.” Fang Yu then cupped her chin as she said,
“Hey white guy, what is the opposite of Down?”
“Up.” The white humanoid replied, with confusion clear on its voice. “How could that be related to what we were talking about here?”
“UP and DOWN.” Fang Yu let out a thin smile as she said these words. “You can say that this is the enlightenment that I gained, and I can only comprehend that thanks to you.”
“UP and DOWN? How can these kind of concepts be comprehended anyway?” The white humanoid thought to itself as it was extremely confused with what Fang Yu said.
Up and Down are just concepts of direction, something that is not of extreme significance on the dao or law of practitioners.
How can these simple concepts be comprehended and used by Fang Yu to shrug off the white humanoid’s ‘Control’?”
“Well, I don’t care if you get what I said or not. Now that I am free, it is time that I will kill you!” Fang Yu’s body then disappeared, and the next thing that the white humanoid knew, Fang Yu’s powerful fist collided with its head, which immediately exploded upon impact!
“Tsk, good thing I comprehended the Up-Down Duality Concept at that time. If not, then may head could be the one that is destroyed!”
