The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 424
Chapter 424: End of an Era
“Stop it already with your stupid antics Solomon!” The hooded man shouted as he twirled the staff on his hands.
The staff let out a low hum, which was picked up by Fang Yu’s ears. “Damn… that staff sure looks precious!” Fang Yu thought as her vision skimmed at the other Powerhouses beside the hooded man.
“Oh s**t, all of them have powerful artifacts! Tsk, if I can only get them…” Fang Yu of course knew that with her power right now, there is no way for her to do that.
Heck, even just escaping right now is almost impossible for her! “Just give the girl to us.” The hooded man said as he pointed his staff at Fang Yu.
The staff then started to glow red as agonized shouts could be heard echoing from the staff. Those who heard these shouts did not show any signs of discomfort except for Fang Yu, who slightly flinched as she heard them.
“Solomon and Goddess Fang Yu, I know that both of you were monstrous practitioners of your generation, so much so that only very few will choose to fight against you two.”
The hooded man’s voice sounded begrudging, as if he really was not happy on praising the two.
“Oh my, we are flattered that we can receive such praise from the Mad God himself.” The Goddess said as she hid Fang Yu behind her. “Seems like my notorious reputation is now fully known at the whole Universe…” The Mad God just shook his head calmly, which showed no indication that he was mad.
His voice though, sounded irritating as he gloated, “Well, I will be hesitating to fight you two together if it was before. But now, look at you two! You are both heavily injured now and on the verge of death! You won’t be able to win against me, much less when all 20 of us attacks you two!”
“Hmph, all words but no action.” Solomon muttered as he gave the Mad God the finger. “Just like what I told you earlier, if you want to fight, then fight!”
“Now you’ve done it!” The Mad God bellowed as the space around him began to crack. This was a testament to the frightening power that was inside the Mad God.
As for the other 19 Powerhouses, the space around them also began to crack as they prepared for a battle.
While this was happening, Fang Yu suddenly heard the Goddess’ Divine Sense Message in her mind.
“Fang Yu, when I tell you to start unfusing later, you will start unfusing. If you do not follow my signal later, then your memories will be doomed!”
“Wait, wait, wait!” Fang Yu shouted as she hastily replied with her divine sense. “Can’t you see the power of our enemies? No offense, but you and Solomon are both heavily injured! How can the two of you do something that will break the Time Barrier that is preventing me from going back?”
“Fang Yu, I am you, and you are me.” The Goddess said as she chuckled in their Divine Sense Conversation. “You know that whatever happens, both of us always have a way to get through anything! As long as we are alive, we can break through any obstacles!” After saying these words, the Goddess’ body started to glow, which filled the whole area with a bluish-white light.
Solomon’s body glowed too, and what came out of him was a reddish-black light When both of these glows hit Fang Yu, her body suddenly stirred, as if her body was extremely familiar to the bluish-white and the reddish-black light. The Goddess and Solomon then flew towards each other as the glows emitted by their bodies began to mix.
“Not good! Stop them!” The Mad God bellowed as he felt an intense feeling of danger from whatever the Goddess and Solomon was doing.
“These two… they still have something hidden in their sleeves!” “Hey, hey, hey…” Fang Yu muttered as she saw what the two were doing. “Are you trying to sacrifice yourselves for me?”
“Just shut up and watch.” Solomon relied harshly as his body began to slowly disintegrate. From the looks of it, whatever he was trying to do required his very own life.
The Goddess was also at the same state, with her beautiful body starting to crack. Fang Yu gulped as she felt that both the Goddess and Solomon are increasing their power by igniting their potential and their life! By burning up all their lifespan and potential left, Solomon and the Goddess could possibly make one powerful attack.
But once this attack was used, both Solomon and the Goddess will surely die, no doubt about it.
“Kgh…” Fang Yu gritted her teeth as she felt complicated emotions right now. She was unsure on what to feel as she saw their sacrifice. Even if they only met for a short time, Fang Yu knew that it took massive determination for both Solomon and Goddess to sacrifice their life.
After all, Fang Yu might fail on changing the timeline! Just their art of sacrifice shows how much they both trust Fang Yu!
“Tsk, do not feel sad my younger version.” The Goddess said as she slowly caressed Fang Yu’s cheek. “You know that if you succeed in changing the past, you can also prevent my death here.”
“But still!” “No more talking okay?” At that moment, Fang Yu’s mind lurched as the Goddess suddenly deposited something in her mind. “Guh!” Fang Yu saw that inside her mind, there was a large treasure chest that was sealed shut.
Fang Yu tried manipulating the chest inside her mind, but it would not budge no matter what.
Fang Yu then heard the Goddess talking though her via their Divine Sense. “Fang Yu, that treasure chest that I put in your mind contains most of my memories. Everything I saw and experienced are all inside this treasure chest now! Keep it safe okay?.”
Even if she was sad right now, Fang Yu also felt excitement as she stared at the treasure chest in wonder.
Once she gets the memories inside the treasure chest, she can use them for her own advantage! “Hey, I knew you would think of that.” The Goddess said wryly, knowing how the young version of her will react.
She playfully flicked Fang Yu’s forehead as she said, “Fang Yu, if you access all these memories now, I am sure that you will be unable to handle them! So, I decided to seal these memories inside the treasure chest.” “How can I unseal it then?” Fang Yu replied impatiently as the glow between Solomon and Fang Yu is now covering the whole Goddess Planet.
“You do not need to do anything.” The Goddess replied. “The chest will slowly unseal on its own, so you just have to wait until then.” “…. I see. Do you have any more requests then?” Fang Yu asked as she saw that the only part left of Goddess’ body was her head.
The Goddess shook her head, which was actually an amazing feat with her current state now. “I have no more requests for you. I just have one advice for you: Please, whatever happens to you later, you must not lose hope! Stay strong! If you do not do that… you will lose many compared to what you will gain.”
Fang Yu just stayed quiet as she felt the pain and self-loathing in the Goddess’ message.
“Who do you think you are talking to? I am Fang Yu, and I do not just fold under pressure!” Fang Yu replied proudly. “Oh you know what? I promise you that once I go back, I will make sure that I will have a large harem of women following me! I will make them love me, whether I am male or female!”
“What a nice dream… I hope you can achieve that….” After saying these words, the head of the Goddess disappeared entirely. Now, there was no trace of the Goddess left as her whole body fully disintegrated into nothingness.
Solomon was at the same state too, with his body also gone. “Foosh~” Fang Yu suppressed her emotions as she bowed in front of the Goddess’ former spot. Her voice was low as she said, “I would never let what you two did go to waste…”
“Boom!” The powerhouses that were trying to stop Fang Yu from leaving found out to their dismay that they were unable to prevent Solomon and the Goddess from making their attack.
“These two madmen… they are trying to use their life to make their one last attack! How vicious!” The Mad God muttered as he knew how powerful this last attack will be.
It was a known fact that sacrificing all your life and potential will result to one extremely powerful attack! But since using this method will result on death, those who did this are those who are either crazy or desperate. Both Solomon and the Goddess are crazy and desperate, so for them to sacrifice their life was already inevitable.
“Brace yourselves!” The Mad God bellowed as he retreated back slightly. “If we get careless now, some of us might even get killed! Defend with all your might! After that two uses their last attack, they will surely die! It will be at that moment that we will swoop in to capture the young Fang Yu!” “Hong~”
The bluish-white and the reddish black light mixed until they formed a powerful light beam which barreled towards the powerhouses. But instead of hitting all of them, this light beam seemed to have a mind of its own as it chose to only attack one person. And that person was a red-haired woman who was holding a circular disk in her hand.
“S**t!” The woman cursed as she raised the circular disk to defend herself. “Boom!” Even if the light beam attack was terrifying, the circular disk managed to stop the attack head-on. But after the red-haired woman used the disk to defend herself, Fang Yu felt that the Time Barrier preventing her from unfusing was now gone! It was at that moment that Fang Yu heard a voice in her mind saying, “Fang Yu, unfuse now!” “So that’s is how it is!” Fang Yu laughed as she realized what Solomon and the Goddess did.
Instead of using their last attack to injure the powerhouses, they must have calibrated their attack so that it will only target the red-haired woman. This red-haired woman was most probably the Chronomancer that was preventing Fang Yu from leaving. With this woman preoccupied on defending herself, the Time Barrier that she placed disappeared entirely. And of course Fang Yu would not waste her chance! “Unfuse!”
Fang Lin suddenly appeared at the Prison in the God Continent, as the female Fang Yu was one left at the Goddess Planet. “Fuse!”
Fang Yu then disappeared as she fused back with Fang Lin at the God Continent! “No!!!” The Mad God bellowed as he saw Fang Yu disappearing in front of him. This horrified shout was the last thing that Fang Yu heard as appeared back on the Planet Thrae. “……..”
Fang Yu took a deep breath as she looked around her. She shook her head as she let out a sigh of relief. Fang Yu then brandished her fists in the air as she shouted, “Hey! Where s my welcoming party?”
