The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 417
Chapter 417: Clean-Up Drive
“Woosh~” There was nothing spectacular that happened, except for the fact that everyone that was hit by the finger immediately died. This included all the Gods that tried to attack Wang Hao and Old Man Yan. Their bodies disintegrated quickly, leaving nothing including their bodies. Even their equipment and storage were all destroyed too. Their death was a quick death, but the domineering power of the death energy made their deaths certainly not painless.
As for the Beast God Envoys, they were all surprisingly alive. A powerful forcefield surrounded them, protecting them from the finger. But this forcefield seemed to be not enough as it was being slowly eroded by the death energy of the finger. Wang Hao took a deep breath as he was extremely surprised upon seeing this forcefield.
With his energy sense, he can feel that the energy inside this forcefield was something that could not be scoffed at! “What the hell, so they had something like this?” Wang Hao muttered as he stared at Jiang Chen, Stella, and Asnyan looking at the finger with fear. But Wang Hao could also see surprise in the faces of the three, as if they were not expecting something like a forcefield protecting them. “Does this mean that they do not know that something like a forcefield will protect them?”
When Wang Hao thought about it, that seemed to be the case. From the looks of it, the higher-ups in the Beast God Planet must have been worried greatly for the welfare of the Beast God Envoys, so they must have decided to sneak this forcefield with them. With the defensive prowess that this forcefield had, it must have been incomparably precious!
But for this forcefield to activate, there must be a very strict condition. That condition, from the looks of it, is that the Beast God Envoys must first face an incredibly perilous situation where their chances of survival is nil. If nothing like that happens, then the forcefield will not activate. But today, that forcefield was ‘forced’ to show up.
“Who the hell made that forcefield?” Wang Hao muttered as she watched the forcefield being slowly corroded by the finger. Wang Hao knew that the Beast God Planet was a Sixth Stage Planet, and even with the Planetary Permission, the strongest beings in that planet can only be at most Seventh Stage. With that information, there should be technically no one in the Beast God Planet that can sneak in a forcefield that was somehow able to withstand an attack of the Yama Clone.
Even the Minister of Agriculture was surprised by what he saw, as he looked at the corroding forcefield with wonder. Wang Hao was tempted to ask the Minister of Agriculture on how powerful is the finger attack of the Yama Clone, but he knew that the Minister of Agriculture will just continue mocking him. So, Wang Hao just chose to talk to the Beast God Envoys that are nearing their deaths.
Even if they were happy and surprised by the unexpected protection of the forcefield, the Beast God Envoys still had ugly expression on their faces. How could they not be? The forcefield covering them was a powerful one, not only blocking external things from coming in, it also prevented anything inside the forcefield to come out! This means that Jiang Chen cannot just attack the forcefield form the outside just to break himself out.
As long as the forcefield was not destroyed, the Beast God Envoys would not be able to escape. However, the Beast God Envoys could not just wait for the forcefield to be destroyed now. If it gets destroyed, the Beast God Envoys will be immediately killed by the finger that was slowly corroding the forcefield! Wang Hao smirked upon seeing the misfortune that the Beast God Envoys were in right now. He raised his voice with his energy manipulation to that he can speak to the panicking Beast God Envoys.
“Seems like you three are the only ones left.” Wang Hao said as he let out another grey orb from his storage. He activated it with his touch, and it let out another ghastly glow that rippled across the whole area. The souls of the Gods that were killed by the finger seconds earlier were revealed by the ghastly glow, and they all looked extremely unhappy. They were supposed to be in the Underworld now, but Wang Hao did not give them a chance to do that. No matter how much the souls of the slain Gods wailed, they could not do anything but be absorbed by the grey orb.
If the finger was not here, even Wang Hao will find it almost impossible to use the grey orb to absorb the souls of Gods. But the death energy still swirling around the finger weakened the resistance of the souls towards the absorption of the grey orb. The Beast God Envoys watched with wide eyes as the majority of the powers in the God Continent were all now inside one of Wang Hao’s balls. “You know, once your forcefield gets destroyed, your souls will be the next souls to be placed inside this orb.” Wang Hao said as he gave the grey orb a shake. “I await for your demise later!”
The Beast God Envoys could only give Wang Hao angry and confused looks as they realized one thing. Wang Hao and the Minister of Agriculture seems to be not affected by the death energy around the finger! Well that was to be expected, as both Wang Hao and the Minister of Agriculture held high status in the Underworld. There is now way that the Yama Clone would accidentally kill them.
Wang Hao, seeing the looks on their faces, let out a smile as he said, “If you acquiesce to some of my demands, then I will give you three a way to survive your current predicament. I swear with my soul that I will uphold what I promised.” Even if the Beast God Envoys were wary from a scheme by Wang Hao, they felt relief as Wang Hao swore with his own soul that he will uphold what he promised in the deal! In that case, the Beast God Envoys will have no worries on Wang Hao reneging his promise!
The only problem is about the demands that Wang Hao had. “Tell us the demands first.” Stella said, using her quick mind to formulate a strategy. “If we can’t follow even just one of your demands, then this deal will be off.” “Well I actually just have one demand.” Wang Hao said as he poked at the forcefield surrounding the Beast God Envoys. He licked his lips as he said, “Just let me absorb this forcefield.” “No way!” Jiang Chen bellowed as he glared at Wang Hao angrily. “If you do that, then we will die!”
“So the deal is off then?” Wang Hao asked Jiang Chen for confirmation. “You really want to call this deal off now?” “Hah, the deal is off now!” Jiang Chen said as be out a harsh sound. “You are not really interested in making a deal with us, you are just trying to humiliate us!” “Oh well, that is your choice then. That just means I have to absorb this forcefield without your permission.” Wang Hao shamelessly said this as he began to absorb the energy inherent in the forcefield. “No, what the hell are you doing!!!” None of the Beast God Envoys could have imagined that Wang Hao will just do something shameless like this in front of them! “Pop!”
But their complaints were cut short as the forcefield disappeared with a pop. “Thanks for the meal.” Wang Hao said as he made a gesture of patting his stomach. “I really like that forcefield. Do you have something more like that?” But Wang Hao did not receive any answers, as the three Beast God Envoys quickly died under the exposure of the death energy. Wang Hao could only see the indignant expression on their faces as their bodies faded away. Of course Wang Hao was not affected by that. Instead he was slightly sad as he realized that the forcefield is the only special treasure that the Beast God Envoys have. “Well, at least I got that energy in the forcefield.” Wang Hao realized that the energy inside the forcefield was something that he had never seen before. This made Wang Hao greatly excited to obtain it and now that he had it, he will do his best to study this energy.
With all its target gone, the finger disappeared, which made the heavy pressure covering the whole Planet Thrae disappear. Wang Hao then heard some clapping sounds behind him, and he saw the Minister of Agriculture giving Wang Hao a praising look. “You killing those stuck-up Gods is a plus to me. I think I hate you less now.” The Minister of Agriculture then paused as he gave Wang Hao an advice. “I know that you want to discover how the Yama Clone was able to bypass the cultivation restrictions of this planet. Trust me, the answer to that is extremely complicated.” Wang Hao just let out a sigh after hearing this. He gritted his teeth as he said, “And if I want to know that complicated answer, I should be the Yama Successor first, right?”
“Exactly.” The Minister of Agriculture then looked at the door, which was starting to fade already. “Oof, 5 minutes have already passed by, so its time for me to go now.” The Minister of Agriculture gave Wang Hao one last fleeting look before he closed the door. “I know that you have a powerful background before, but even with that, you should learn that you cannot just stick your nose in anything you see. Who knows, there could be a snake hidden there. You will be just bitten to death if you are not careful.” Wang Hao can easily detect the hidden threat in the words of the Minister of Agriculture. But instead of being offended, Wang Hao just smiled as he replied, “Well, thank you for your consideration. But you should know that I have a favorite rule in my life: If a snake bites me, then I will bite that snake back!” “Hmph, suit yourself then.” This was the last words that the Minister of Agriculture said to Wang Hao as the door disappeared entirely. The foul presence of the Minister of Agriculture was now gone, and it made Wang Hao slightly happy.
The two grey orbs that created the door fell on Wang Hao’s hand, with both of them letting out smelly fumes. “They almost broke huh. At least they did not explode.” Wang Hao did not waste any time as he stored these two grey orbs in his storage As for the grey orb that he used to store the souls of the Gods, Wang Hao kept on holding it as he looked around him. He saw the ruins of the Palace of the Gods, the mangled bodies of those that was killed by the spatial tears, and the extreme lack of life 10 kilometers around him.
It both felt eerie and peaceful at the same time. Wang Hao scratched his head as he digested everything that he saw right now. He let out another sigh as he said, “Oh god, I just made a lot of mess today. Can I still fix them? Sigh, I really hate cleaning up my own messes…”
