The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 445
Chapter 445: Life is Really Beautiful
“Huh? Can the death of one person be really bad?” Princess Elissa muttered as she gave the soldier a withering look.
“Look, I do not know your name, but I am pretty sure that you are panicking over the wrong things. So what if that pesky guy that you placed in there were killed by the Ruffian Regiment? That just means he was unlucky to be there at that time. Many have already died in that regiment, so one more death won’t change anything.”
“My sister is right.” This time, the Great General also gave his reply.
“Even if that guy dies, everything will be fine. Actually, having him dead is good for us right now. His death will make the other soldiers fearful of going to the Ruffian Regiment, which will make them better soldiers!”
The soldier scratched his head in frustration after he heard what the two Royalty has said. In the end, he could only give the two of them a sigh as he said,
“Great General, I am not talking about that guy dying… The problem that I am telling you is… something else. Sigh, I think it will be better for you and the Princess to see it for yourselves.”
“Hmph, you are trying so hard to sound mysterious!” Princess Elissa angrily said as she stood up. She glared at the soldier and at her older brother as she said,
“Come, let’s see what you are talking about soldier! But if what you will show us is nothing important, it will be you that will be placed in the Ruffian Regiment next!”
“Noted, Your Highness!” That was the only thing that the soldier could say as he led the two towards the barracks of the Ruffian Regiment.
Upon reaching the barracks, the soldier let out a sigh as he kneeled on the ground with a defeated expression on his face.
“Too late… we are too late…” This is what the soldier muttered as both the Great General and Princess Elissa’s mouth went wide open with what they saw.
They saw that the entirety of the Ruffian Regiment were kneeling down on the ground, with resignation present on their faces.
All of them had injuries, as shown by the blood and the bruises on their bodies.
Some of them were even shivering and looked extremely terrified.
But not all of them are kneeling. There is one person that is not kneeling on the ground.
In fact, all of the soldiers of the Ruffian Regiment seem to be kneeling towards the person that was not kneeling.
It was as if this person was worthy of their respect.
It was as if this person was their leader!
“Hey… that is the pesky guy earlier, right?” Princess Elissa muttered as she pointed towards the person that was not kneeling. “How could he be revered by the soldiers of the Ruffian Regiment?”
“Explain all of this to us!” The Great General said as he glared at the soldier beside him. “How could they just act like that in front of that person?”
The soldier gulped and took a deep breath as he started talking.
“Well, at the instant that I left the barracks, all of the soldiers of the Ruffian Regiment started to attack the young lad, as the young lad had been provoking them earlier. At that time, I decided to take a peek to see how the young lad fares.”
“But to my surprise, it was the young lad that was giving the beatdown!” The soldier said as he gave the young lad a terrified gaze.
“That young lad was like a beast! None of the punches of his opponents could affect him, and that young lad only used one punch to beat each of his opponents!”
The soldier then shook his head as he continued talking.
“At that point I realized that if this goes on, that young lad will be able to defeat the whole Ruffian Regiment. If that happens, then he will be their leader! Great General, can you imagine these ruffians having a powerful leader guiding them? It will be a disaster for the military as a whole!”
“So that is why you went to me and my sister.” The Great General replied with a deadpan voice. “You wanted us to stop that guy from being the leader of the Ruffian Regiment… But from the looks of it, we are already too late.”
It was at this point that the young lad, who was also Fang Lin, looked at the direction of the soldier and the Great General.
The solider could only give Fang Lin a wry smile while Princess Elissa could only give him an angry glare.
As for the Great General, his expression was unfathomable as his head was focused on Fang Lin’s direction.
“You, why did you do that?” Princess Elissa said as she gave Fang Lin a hostile look. “Do you know that the Ruffian Regiment is a place for the wasted soldiers? Why did you decide to be their leader, huh?”
“Oh well…” Fang Lin scratched his head as she gave Princess Elissa a sheepish smile. “I just wanted to defend myself… I never thought that I can actually overpower all of them. And I also did not think that I can be their leader by beating them up! I only wanted to defend myself, that is all!”
Princess Elissa and the other two could only suppress their snorts as they heard Fang Lin’s half-assed reason.
You only defended yourself? How can a methodical beatdown of a group of soldiers be called a self-defense?
This is the thought that crossed the minds of the ruffians, the soldier, the Great General, and Princess Elissa.
“Quit spouting your bulls**t lies!” Princess Elissa said as she glanced at the Great General.
“Big Brother, go and teach that guy a lesson! I am sure you can make him well-behaved!”
“This girl really…” The Great General muttered as he slowly approached Fang Lin.
Actually speaking, the Great General knew that there is no way for him to punish Fang Lin, as what he did was not something that warrants punishments.
What Fang Lin did actually deserves some praise.
But the Great General discarded these thoughts aside as there is only one thing that he is thinking right now.
And that was that he wanted to fight Fang Lin!
“Young lad, I really do not want to do this, but since my little sister told me to, I have no choice but to fight you.” The Great General cleverly pinned the blame to Princess Elissa, who seemed to be fine with what he did.
As for Fang Lin, he only gave the Great General as smile as he said,
“Great General, I know why you want to do this. You just want to fight me, right? Well, come here then! I will be fighting with you to your heart’s content!”
“Preposterous!” Princess Elissa looked extremely scandalized as she heard what Fang Lin said. She let out a shriek as she shouted,
“Big Brother, make sure that that guy will eat dust! Make him realize that there is no way for a commoner to win against a noble!”
“Hai hai.” The Great General replied nonchalantly as he started to size Fang Lin up.
The Great General licked his lips as he knew that he will have a good fight this time.
Ever since the Great General was born, he had been blessed with a physical strength way higher even compared to the Royalty!
He even managed to beat up his father when he was just 4 years old!
Mind you, his father was the King, who was considered the strongest Royalty of the Dragon Emperor Kingdom!
That win of his managed to give the Great General the status of the strongest.
After achieving that title, the Great General had sought ways to strengthen himself more.
He ventured across dangerous places just to increase his power. He even went into the mainland of the Evil Axis Continent numerous times, which always brought him to the brink of death!
But all of this was worth it as by the age of 28, the Great General could already break extremely hard metals with just a flick of his finger!
And if he gave it all, he could even lift 25 metric tons of rocks with both of his hands! (That’s comparable to 4 African Elephants.)
Such feats of strength were unheard of, even from a Royalty!
If there was one regret that the Great General had, it was that he was not able to wear the Dragon Emperor Armor.
If he wore that, the Great General knew that he will be a peerless general.
But alas, only their Hero could wear it, and right now their Hero had worn it already.
Even if the Great General was slightly jealous, he also wanted to fight their Hero with the Dragon Emperor Armor on, as he wanted to feel the power of that Armor itself!
But it seems like he has to forget about that match first as he saw a potential fighter in front of him.
The Great General gave Fang Lin a fearless smile as he said,
“Since I am the one challenging you, you will be the deciding on how we will fight. Any kind of fight can do, as long as they require physical strength and that they are not fatal.”
Fang Lin let out a smile after hearing this. He then flexed his right arm as he said,
“In that case, why don’t we fight using the most basic way of comparing out strength? Let us have an arm wrestling match!”
“Deal!” The Great General did not waste his time as he picked up a flat rock in front of him. As he placed his right elbow on this flat rock, Fang Lin swooped in as he placed his right elbow above the flat rock too.
Both combatants gave fearless smiles at each other as they grasped each other’s right hand.
Princess Elissa, who saw two attractive males grasping each other’s hand, started to feel hot as she thought to herself,
“Oh my, it seems like my Big Brother and that pesky guy could be a great pair! But who would be the top and the bottom? Hmm… my big brother could be the top and that pesky guy could be the bottom… Hehehe…”
Both Fang Lin and the Great General shivered as they felt a sudden chill.
“Are you ready?” The Great General said as he tightened his grip on Fang Lin. “Once I grasp this hard, nothing can escape me unless I loosen up!”
Sounds of dripping blood could be heard as Princess Elissa began to hyperventilate.
“Oh really?” Fang Lin gave a cheeky smile in return. “I am the same too. No matter how hard anything is, they will become limp under my grip!”
“Gah!” This time, more blood spurted out of the Princess as her imagination went into overdrive.
“In that case, here I go!” The Great General said as he let out a grunt.
Fang Lin responded in kind as he let out a grunt too.
At this point, a certain perverted princess had already fainted as the grunts that she heard brought her to the peak of her imagination.
There was a peaceful smile on her face as if she was saying,
“Life is really beautiful….”
