The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 430
Chapter 430: Well-founded Doubts
“Wait, do I really need to ride in that… THING?” Fang Yu whimpered as she felt extremely creeped out by this flying ship that will fetch them.
“No offense, but the aesthetic value of that ship is close to negative infinity.”
“… No matter what you say, we will still ride this ship. Didn’t I explain to you this before? Going to the Underworld via normal methods will not work.” Wang Hao said as he pressed the bridge of his nose.
“The Final Trial will be held this time, so the organizers must make sure that the participants will reach the Underworld safely. This ship is made so that we can travel safely.”
“Oh, so the other two participants are also riding a ship like this? How nice of them to ride on this abomination.” Fang Yu muttered wistfully. “Maybe its only my sense of beauty that is warped here.”
“No, they are not riding a ship like this.” Wang Hao replied morosely. “The other participants had the support of many Underworld Ministers, so the ships that will fetch them looks way cooler than mine. I only have one Underworld Minister supporting me, and he is also somewhat vindictive to me, so the ship I got looks like this…”
“I do not know if I should pity you or not.” Fang Yu muttered as she looked around her.
Fang Yu looked specifically at Wang Mei and Tang Li as she asked Wang Hao, “So, only you, me, Yao’er and the souls you collected will join the Final Trial right? Then why will there be more people joining us?”
“Oh well…” Wang Hao averted his gaze as he tried to look innocent. “There is no way that I can just leave my little sister and my companions behind, right?”
“Hmph, you are just afraid of offending them.”
Even if Fang Yu’s tone sounded harsh, her concern was actually well-founded.
Technically speaking, only Wang Hao and Fang Yu were supposed to go to the Underworld for the Final Trial.
Yao’er is allowed to join as she is the contracted beast of Fang Yu, so she can be considered to be Fang Yu’s possession.
But as for Old Man, Wang Mei, Tang Li, Jorm, Solomon, Fang Anwei, Thea, and Wu Meng, they are all unrelated to the Final Trial, so there is no sense for them to join this trip!
Fang Yu was afraid that them joining will be dangerous, as the Underworld is a hostile place to the living beings.
Fang Yu knew that she can survive given Wang Hao’s status, but she was not sure if that influence can protect the others.
“Don’t worry, as the Underworld Prince, each of my words are final and unquestionable. None of our companions will be harmed with me around!” Wang Hao said as he thumped his chest proudly.
“And even if our companions are not joining the Final Trial, they can be part of the spectators, cheering for us!”
“Tsk, you better be sure that they are safe.” Fang Yu muttered. She then looked at Old Man as she asked him,
“Are you fine going to the Underworld? Technically speaking, you are… a wandering soul right? Won’t you get lynched once we arrive at the Underworld?”
“As long as I stay inside the tablet, nobody can sense me.” Old Man said as he gave Fang Yu a leveled gaze. “Besides, even if the trip will be dangerous, I will never leave my disciple behind!”
“Master…” Fang Yu tried to suppress the smile that was about to bloom on her face as she averted her gaze. “Jeez, let’s just go now ok?”
Wang Hao looked at this spectacle enviously while his little sister Wang Mei just giggled seeing her big brother like this.
Moments later and Wang Hao sighed as he scratched his head. He leapt up as he flew towards the flying ship.
His soul left his mortal body as he entered the flying ship.
Fang Yu watched incredulously as Wang Hao’s soul body was the one that was inside the flying ship.
Wang Hao is supposed to be dead, so going with his real body will just complicate matters.
Thus he must only go to the Underworld with his soul body.
“Let us not dilly-dally now. Come enter this ship quickly. We do not want to be late, right?”
“Yay, another adventure!” Both Tang Li and Wang Mei shouted as they followed Wang Hao’s lead.
Fang Yu suppressed the urge to sigh as she imagined what these brats will do at the Underworld.
“I hope it is nothing serious.” Fang Yu shook her head as she entered the flying ship.
Once everyone boarded the ship, it started to tremble as it blasted upwards.
The whole Planet Thrae trembled again, but this time all the powerhouses in Planet Thrae heaved sighs of relief as they felt the dreadful presence disappearing at the planet’s vicinity.
“Sigh, I feel like we will have a momentary moment of peace this time.” Xiao Ya muttered as she looked up from her room at the Immortal God Sect.
Her eyes were slightly misty as she thought to herself,
“Fang Yu, once you come back, you and I have a lot to talk about.”
“Wow! Its so red and dark!” Tang Li’s voice echoed out inside the flying ship as she had her face pressed at the window.
She and Wang Mei were like unruly kittens as they spent the whole time in their journey just looking through the window.
They let out whoops of delight and countless ooh’s and aah’s as they saw the environment the flying ship had passed through.
They saw countless stars that glinted ferociously as the flying ship skimmed right past through them.
The two brats also shouted as the flying ship entered countless portals, leading the ship to weird environments filled with strange creatures.
Only after an hour of travelling that the flying ship finally arrived at the Underworld Realm.
Just like what Wang Hao saw before, the Underworld stayed basically the same.
Everything inside the Underworld was reeking of death, much so that the newcomers frowned in discomfort.
Wang Hao immediately fed them the supplements that will allow them to survive their stay in the Underworld Realm.
Both Solomon and Jorm’s eyes were twinkling as they seemed to be extremely excited at what they are seeing.
The usually expressionless Jorm was smiling as he flew around the ship excitedly.
Jorm’s evil energy was closely related to the death energy present in the Underworld Realm. Because of that, Jorm felt a sense of closeness and familiarity to the environment of the Underworld Realm.
As for Solomon, maybe he was just thinking that the death energy was cool, as this was a pretty evil type of energy. After all, villains will always like villain stuff, and the baby Solomon seems to be not an exception to that.
Wu Meng’s eyes were narrowed as she looked around her vigilantly. She was not sure why, but she could feel a slight sense of hostility at the moment that she entered the Underworld Realm.
It is not a pleasant feeling, but Wu Meng ignored it momentarily as she knew staying near Wang Hao is her important goal now.
Thea and Fang Anwei seemed to not feel anything weird as they just looked around like casual tourists.
As for Old Man, Fang Yu sensed that he was currently inside the Tablet, not making even just a single move.
Even for Fang Yu who’s slightly paranoid sometimes, what the Old Man was doing right now seems to be over the top.
“Well, at least he will not be caught.” Fang Yu muttered as he approached Wang Hao who was rubbing his hands.
Wang Hao’s demeanor this time was solemn, as if he was about to face something serious this time.
Fang Yu’s steps staggered with what she saw, as this was the first time that she saw Wang Hao looking like this.
“Fang Yu.” Wang Hao said as he saw Fang Yu approaching him. “Whatever happens later, you must not quip! Do not say anything weird! And that also includes Wang Mei, Tang Li, and Solomon!”
“Hey, that’s no fair big brother!”
“Muuu… Tang Li can be a good girl too! Just you wait!”
“What are you shaying? Are you looking for a fight, punk?”
Wang Hao ignored Wang Mei’s retort, Tang Li’s usual promise, and Solomon’s childish threat as he continued on staring at Fang Yu intently.
“…Fine, I can do that. What kind of person do you think I am?” Fang Yu muttered angrily as she walked away. “Have some trust in me okay?”
“Just reminding you…” Wang Hao said as he continued on rubbing his hands.
Minutes later, and the flying ship reached its destination.
The flying ship stopped in front of a door that looked extremely similar to the door that appeared when Wang Hao summoned the Minister of Agriculture.
Fang Yu let out a low whistle when she saw the door. Even someone like her can say that this door looked way cooler compared to the flying ship they were in right now.
This made Fang Yu so embarrassed that she quickly left the flying ship just to get near the door.
The others followed Fang Yu’s suit, with them hastily approaching the door.
“Minister of Agriculture, I will get you back for this!” Wang Hao thought angrily to himself as he became the last person to leave the ugly ship.
Once everyone had vacated, the ship trembled as it turned into a beam of light which flew off into the distance.
Wang Hao and the others were not in the mood to know where the ship went as they stared intently at the door in front of them.
While they were waiting for something to happen, all of them suddenly heard rumbling sounds from the distance.
They all looked at the source of the sounds, and what they saw made them look at Wang Hao with doubt.
They saw two flying ships that came from the opposite directions.
Just like Wang Hao’s flying ship, these two new flying ships also had the theme of death.
But unlike Wang Hao’s ship that looked ugly, these two newcomer flying ships looked extremely elegant and noble!
One can even say that if Wang Hao’s flying ship was comparable to a carriage of a poor merchant, then the two newcomer flying ships were like the carriages for royalty!
Such blatant difference of their ships made Wang Hao’s companions doubt if he was really an Underworld Prince!
“Hey, I know what you are thinking!” Wang Hao muttered angrily as he started to defend himself.
But before he could say something, he heard a male voice calling out to him.
“Hey Wang Hao, long time no see. You… you brought a lot of living beings with you huh. Are you sure they are allowed to stay here?”
This speaker was a man whose regal appearance was something that even Wang Hao could also not match.
There was a fiery aura around him that made Fang Yu’s Pure Yang Universe Flame quiver in excitement.
Wang Hao let out a sigh as he introduced this person to Fang Yu and others.
“See that guy? He is one of my opponents for the Final Trial. His name is Huo Huangdi, and he is a Godly Divine Beast that can manipulate all kinds of Flames.”
Before Fang Yu and the others could process this information, they heard one more voice calling out to Wang Hao.
This voice was melodious, and one can only feel bliss just by hearing it. Even Fang Yu smiled foolishly as she imagined how beautiful the speaker will be.
“Wang Hao, we meet again. This time, I want to talk to you about some extremely important things.”
Fang Yu’s guess was right, as she saw that the speaker was an extremely beautiful woman, whose beauty can even rival Fang Yu’s.
But it was not only her beauty that was overwhelming.
Fang Yu could sense a powerful aura emanating from this woman that made Fang Yu feel slightly wary of her.
Beauty and power combined! This woman is something to be admired and feared!
Wang Hao smiled a little as he gave a nod to this woman.
“As for this woman, she is also one of the Final Trial Participants. Her name is Jieshu, and she was a Ninth Stage Practitioner when she died!”
“…Wang Hao, now I understand why their support on you is lacking.” Fang Yu said as she patted Wang Hao’s back, as if she was consoling him.
“We understand your pain, so you can cry all you want now…”
