The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 452
Chapter 452: Is being Lucky a type of Cheating?
“Huh? Are you in your right mind?” Princess Elissa immediately interjected after Fang Lin gave his opinion.
“General Draco, you want us to call upon the help of the Massacre Hero and the other Hero to slay Demon King Seigneur? Hahaha, did you forget the fact that the Massacre Hero killed every Royalty of the Fallen Heart Kingdom and the Golden River Kingdom? The only reason that we are alive right now was because of our Hero!”
“Oh well, since the role of the Heroes is to slay the Demon Kings, then why don’t they just team up?” Fang Lin replied as he tilted his head. “I think that in face of the Demon Kings, the past transgressions of the other two heroes can be forgiven.”
Princess Elissa was about to argue back when Bai Huangdi raised his right hand, effectively stopping her.
Bai Huangdi tilted his head, as if he was greatly interested in what Fang Lin just said.
Bai Huangdi’s head then swiveled in Fang Lin’s direction as he said,
“What you said… is interesting. But how can I be sure that the other two Heroes will not betray me?”
“Hero, I think that part should be up to you.” Fang Lin replied quickly. “After all, you and the other heroes came from another world, so maybe you have some ways to ensure that there will be no betrayal.”
Some of the Generals nodded their heads upon hearing what Fang Lin said. Even Princess Elissa, who was antagonistic against Fang Lin, could not help but feel that Fang Lin was right.
Upon seeing what was happening, Bai Huangdi knew that he had no way out now.
“Sure, there is a way to ensure that they will not betray me.” Bai Huangdi replied calmly as he looked at Fang Lin. “However, even though we can do that, there is still one more problem remaining.”
“Another problem?” Princess Elissa tilted her head as she looked at Bai Huangdi. “What do you mean by that Hero?”
“The problem that I am talking about is on how the other 2 Heroes can be brought here.” Bai Huangdi said as he touched the scratched portion of his armor.
“When I met the Massacre Hero earlier, she told me that she was busy tailing the Hero of the Golden River Kingdom. Maybe those two are even fighting right now!” Bai Huangdi then wagged his fingers on Fang Lin’s direction as he said,
“If those two are busy fighting, then how can those two allow themselves to be brought here?”
This statement by Bai Huangdi dampened the excitement by the other Generals, as they realized that the other two heroes are busy fighting against themselves now.
There is no way for them to ally with those two heroes!
But even with what Bai Huangdi said, Fang Lin did not look discouraged. He even looked excited as he said,
“In that case Hero, let me be the one to convince those two to stop fighting and join us!”
“Eh?” This time, everyone on the meeting was shocked by Fang Lin’s statement.
Bai Huangdi was also shocked, but he was also greatly amused by what Fang Lin said.
“General Draco…” Bai Huangdi’s voice sounded perfectly calm as he stood up slowly. “I have met many remarkable men in this continent already, and all of them are praiseworthy. That made me think that maybe, all of the men in the military of the Dragon Emperor Kingdom will be rational. But now, I am seeing an idiot babbling nonsense, and he is a General, of all things!”
“Hahaha!” Everyone in the table except Fang Lin started to laugh, as they realized that Fang Lin was just putting on airs right now.
They even thought that Fang Lin might have something wrong on his head.
“Oh, so you are doubting me…” Fang Lin gave a sly smile to Bai Huangdi as he said,
“Hero it seems like you do not believe that I can convince those two heroes to be here. How about we make a bet?”
“A bet?” Bai Huangdi tilted his head after he heard what Fang Lin said. “Oh, so you want to go to that extent huh…”
Fang Lin ignored the mocking looks given to him as he said,
“If I fail to convince the other heroes to come here within a day, then you can ask me to do one thing. But if I manage to convince the other heroes to come here, then you have to do one thing for me!”
“Oh…” Even if Fang Lin’s proposal sounded ridiculous, Bai Huangdi looked extremely interested in what Fang Lin said.
“Ok…” Bai Huangdi suddenly leaned back on his chair as he lazily replied,
“As long as the thing that the loser will do will not be fatal or humiliating, then I will agree to your bet.”
Before the Generals could react at what Bai Huangdi said, Fang Lin beat them to the punch as he said,
“Ok, the loser will not have to do fatal or humiliating things then. ”
“In that case, I accept your bet.” Bai Huangdi said with finality as he put his legs on the table. “Just like what you said earlier, you only have one day to convince the other heroes to come here. So you better start moving now!”
“Then I’m going now!” Fang Lin replied quickly as he looked at the Great General, whose body was slightly twitching.
Even if the Great General had a mask on, it was quite obvious that he was shocked by what just transpired.
“Great General,” Fang Lin said as he ignored the angry Princess Elissa. “I need your help to procure some things that are here in the military.”
“Why? Will you need to use these things to convince the other heroes?” The Great General replied in a neutral tone. “If it is, then I will gather them now. But make sure that you can convince them because if you fail, you will be punished for reckless conduct.”
“Oh Great General, do not worry,” Fang Lin replied as he gave the Great General a solemn look. “I, Draco, have never failed in any of my endeavors. Those two heroes? They will be only used as stepping stones by us!”
“Are you really sure about this?” The Great General asked Fang Lin as hegave Fang Lin the objects that he demanded. “You can still back down now.”
“Nope, nope, nope. I will still go on with this.” Fang Lin stubbornly replied to the Great General. “There is no way for me to stop now.”
Upon seeing the look on Fang Lin’s face, the Great General realized that there is no way for him to persuade Fang Lin anymore.
As for the other Generals, they decided to not speak up as they thought that seeing Fang Lin lose the bet will be of great joy to them.
Bai Huangdi, who saw that Fang Lin is ready, let out a smirk as he said,
“General Draco, I will not try to question your negotiation abilities for now. But I am still unsure on how you will find the other heroes. Mind you, I saw the Massacre Hero going towards the middle of the Alliance Continent. Even if you are as strong as the Crown Prince, there is no way for you to find them easily.”
The other Generals leered at Fang Lin as Bai Huangdi asked him,
“So, how are you going to find the other heroes now?”
“Ah well…” Fang Lin scratched his head as he said,
“You can say that I will just rely on my luck.”
“Luck? What bulls**t luck are you talking about, huh?” Princess Elissa angrily said to Fang Lin. “Are you thinking that you will be lucky enough that the other heroes will just come going at you? How preposterous!”
“Well…” Fang Lin just shook his head as he said in a low voice,
“I have been always lucky when I was young, and it helped me go through impossible situations. Because of that, I trust that my luck will let me meet the other heroes.”
“You…” But before Princess Elissa could say anything, Fang Lin rode in the carriage given to him as he started to leave the compound.
In no time at all, Fang Lin’s carriage left the military compound.
The figure of the carriage looked extremely desolate as it passed through the land covered by the night sky.
Princess Elissa could only stomp her foot in anger as she realized that she had been snubbed by Fang Lin once more.
“Hahaha, Princess Elissa, do not be angry anymore. I am sure that that General Draco will fail miserably. After all, he dared to challenge our Hero!” One of the Generals said to Princess Elissa. There is no way for him to win!”
“Yes, that is right!” Princess Elissa said as she stared at Bai Huangdi with misty eyes.
Princess Elissa could not help but blush every time she looked at Bai Huangdi, as she remembered all the ‘naughty’ things that Bai Huangdi did to her.
“Hero, I-” But Princess Elissa’s words were suddenly stuck in her throat as she saw that Bai Huangdi seemed to be staring at a certain direction.
The other Generals noticed Bai Huangdi’s weird action, so they decided to look at where Bai Huangdi is looking at.
Princess Elissa decided to look too, but she realized that the place that Bai Huangdi was staring at was the place where Fang Lin’s carriage was heading to.
“Huh? Is there something weird in that place?” Since Bai Huangdi was still looking at that direction, Princess Elissa decided to look at that direction for a few more seconds.
After a minute of awkward wait, Princess Elissa and the other Generals already saw what Bai Huangdi had already seen earlier.
They could see two figures running at high speeds.
Both of them were also women, judging from their appearance and the shape of their bodies.
The one running in front was an extremely beautiful woman, whose beauty even surpassed that of Princess Elissa’s.
Her body also had the perfect proportions, much so that even Princess Elissa was fascinated by her body.
As for the woman running behind, her face could not be seen as she was wearing a mask.
Both of these women were running quickly, with the woman at the back seemingly chasing the woman in the front.
While Princess Elissa and the Generals were wondering who these two women were, Bai Huangdi started to chuckle as he said,
“That woman running at the back is the Massacre Hero, while the woman she was chasing is the Hero of the Golden River Kingdom! Hahaha! So that General Draco seems to be really lucky!”
“What!” Princess Elissa was greatly shocked by what Bai Huangdi said.
“So those two women are the other Heroes?” Princess Elissa muttered as she saw that the two Heroes were getting nearer and nearer to the compound.
But before they could start to panic, Princess Elissa and the other Generals realized that before the two Heroes could get near the military compound, they will have to pass by Fang Lin’s carriage first!
Upon seeing this scenario, Princess Elissa started to have a cold sweat as she murmured,
“Is General Draco’s luck so great… that the two Heroes he was looking for just conveniently appeared here? This is cheating!”
