The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 454
Chapter 454: Played like a Fiddle
“S**t….” Veronica cursed as she realized that just like Fang Yu, Bai Huangdi was also adamant on this alliance.
It was then at that moment that she thought of another thing.
“What if… Fang Yu and Bai Huangdi are in cahoots right now? That means that they must have been planning to do something without me!”
“Tsk…” At this point, Veronica realized that if she will not join in this alliance, then Fang Yu and Bai Huangdi will be free to do what they wanted to do.
Someone must prevent them from succeeding, and that someone has to be Veronica herself.
If Veronica will be in the alliance, then she could see what Fang Yu and Bai Huangdi were planning to do, and then Veronica can then prevent that plan from coming into fruition.
“S**t, s**t, s**t…” Veronica could only grit her teeth as she approached the drum.
“F**k, I have no choice now but to join this alliance too, damnit!” Veronica angrily said as she struck the drum.
Bai Huangdi closed his eyes in satisfaction as he heard the sound of the drums hitting his ears.
Now that all three of them are allied against Demon King Seigneur, it will be much harder for him to win!
Of course Bai Huangdi was also suspicious about Fang Yu’s intent to join. But a few oaths and agreements will be enough to prevent Fang Yu from messing things up.
As for Veronica, Bai Huangdi was not worried about her as he knew that she just joined in the alliance so that she will not be suppressed by him and Fang Yu.
“Now then…” Bai Huangdi clapped his hands as he looked at both Fang Yu and Veronica. “Now that we three are allied, I implore you to come at my place right now. We three have a lot of talking to do…”
But before Bai Huangdi could leave, a certain someone started to speak up.
“Hero, it seems like you are forgetting about one thing…” Fang Lin, who was mostly ignored by the Heroes, gave Bai Huangdi a smile as he said,
“You remember about our bet, right?”
“Of course I remember.” Bai Huangdi dismissively said as his body suddenly disappeared.
The next thing that Fang Lin knew, Bai Huangdi was in front of him, with Bai Huangdi’s fist just above Fang Lin’s head.
The space around Bai Huangdi’s fist was trembling, as if there was a frightening power contained inside his fist.
“Hey, General Draco…” Bai Huangdi slowly said as his powerful fist slowly descended towards Fang Lin. “You said that if I lose the bet, I have to do one thing for you, right? Well, right now, you know what you can make me do, right?”
“…” Fang Lin could only look at the descending fist towards him as he realized what Bai Huangdi was scheming.
Since Fang Lin had won the bet, then he can request Bai Huangdi one thing, as long as that request will not be fatal or humiliating.
Bai Huangdi of course was not happy about this, as there could be a chance that the request given to him by Fang Lin might interfere on Bai Huangdi’s mission.
Because of that, Bai Huangdi must have decided to force Fang Lin to make a request at this moment.
Right now, Bai Huangdi was about to attack Fang Lin, and in Bai Huangdi’s opinion, Fang Lin will be killed by his attack.
Of course, Fang Lin will survive if he requests Bai Huangdi to stop his attack.
But once Fang Lin did that, he cannot make any more requests, as he just used the request to save his life!
With this tactic, Bai Huangdi will be able to use Fang Lin’s free request without Bai Huangdi suffering any loss at all!
“What a devious fellow!” Fang Lin thought sullenly to himself.
Since Fang Lin was acting like a native right now, then he must also act scared of Bai Huangdi’s attack.
This means Fang Lin cannot just use his real strength to avoid Bai Huangdi’s attack.
If he did that, his identity as the real Hero will be revealed.
In that case, Fang Lin has no choice but to request Bai Huangdi to stop his attack.
But will Fang Lin just allow himself to be outwitted like this? Of course not!
Fang Lin gave Bai Huangdi a cocky smile as he said,
“In that case… Hero, I request that you will not harm me starting from this moment until the day you leave.”
“Che.” Bai Huangdi let out an annoyed tsk as he realized he had been one-upped by Fang Lin again.
Bai Huangdi was annoyed, as the request that Fang Lin made will basically force Bai Huangdi to not attack Fang Lin until the day that he left.
“Tsk, you are lucky that your quick thinking has saved you.” Bai Huangdi said as he started to go back to the military compound.
But before Bai Huangdi could leave, Illusion Fang Yu gave Bai Huangdi a suspicious look as she said,
“Hey Bai Huangdi, how can General Draco be sure that you won’t break your promise to not attack him? In my opinion, I think you should make a Soul Oath right now!”
“Che!” Bai Huangdi gave a seething look to Fang Lin, who looked like he does not understand what a Soul Oath means.
“Since Miss Fang Yu wanted me to do that, then I shall make a Soul Oath.”
Bai Huangdi then took a deep breath before he said,
“I, Bai Huangdi, swear with my soul that I shall not attack this pesky guy in front of me until the day that I leave this planet. If I ever violate this oath, the heavens are free to obliterate my soul…”
“Great!” Illusion Fang Yu smilingly said as she gave Bai Huangdi a praising look. “So you can also man up sometimes huh.”
“Hehehe…” After receiving this praise, the only thing that Bai Huangdi did was foolishly smile as he went back to the military compound.
As for Veronica, she was currently looking at Fang Lin, as if she had been impressed by what Fang Lin did.
As for Illusion Fang Yu, she was just standing there as she gave knowing looks to Veronica.
Upon seeing this, the only thing that Fang Lin could do was to wear a strained smile.
Fang Lin then looked at Illusion Fang Yu and at Veronica as he said,
“Well then, Massacre Hero and Big Sis Hero, welcome to the Alliance of the Alliance Continent! I am sure that both of you will be satisfied with this alliance! With you three banding together, no Demon King can ever hope of winning!”
Genie, who just watched what happened, could not help but laugh as she saw the trap laid by Fang Lin.
Bai Huangdi must have thought that he made a Soul Oath to not attack General Draco.
But the truth was that Bai Huangdi made a Soul Oath to not attack Fang Lin, as Fang Lin was disguised as General Draco!
“Jorm, your foster father’s disciple is great, right?” Genie said to Jorm, who was still nestled at the top of her head. “His quick thinking is impressive just like Wang Hao’s.”
“…..” As usual, Jorm still looked extremely bored as he just stared at the screen listlessly.
“Really…” Seeing that Jorm would not give her a reply, Genie just sighed as she continued to watch.
But while she was watching, Genie suddenly felt an ill feeling that flashed inside her mind.
With her authority as the Yama Successor, Genie was able to ascertain the cause of her ill feeling.
Using her authority, Genie discovered that there was something anomalous happening at the planet of the Final Trial.
Genie could see that a 10-meter tall space crack suddenly appeared at the ocean between the Alliance and Evil Axis Continent.
Because of its size, this space crack was undetected by the trial participants in the Abandoned Planet.
But Genie was able to see the space crack as she observed it from the outside.
Upon closer observations, Genie saw that tendrils of white mist were slowly coming out of this space crack, which diffused to the air around the space crack.
Genie clenched her fists upon seeing this. Her eyes narrowed as she began walking away from the screen. She gritted her teeth as she thought to herself,
“So, the Dreamworld is making their move now huh. Since they are so eager to act now, then it will be the time for me to act too!”
But before Genie could leave her house, she remembered that there was still a baby perched at the top of her head.
“Jorm.” Genie said to the stubborn Jormungandr. “Big Sis is about to do something very important, and it will be extremely dangerous. So I want you to stay here at my house and just be a good baby.”
“…….” The way that Jorm glared at Genie and his silence was enough to indicate that his answer to Genie’s command was a big resounding NO.
“Sigh…” After seeing this stubbornness, Genie decided to just get done with it.
She waved her hands, and the unyielding Jorm’s eyes began to droop as he started to get sleepy.
In no time at all, Jorm fell asleep, with adorable snoring sound coming out of him.
Genie then removed Jorm from her head as she called the old man that she was talking with earlier.
Just a second later, and the red-bearded old man reappeared in front of Genie, and it was quite obvious that he was excited right now.
“So, how did your wife react to seeing those kids?” Genie asked with a withered expression as she lifted the sleeping Jorm with her left hand. “Is she delighted?”
“She was in cloud nine.” The old man replied as he caressed his beard. “She immediately started playing with them! Even that Solomon could not escape my wife’s hold! Hahaha!”
“Then can you bring this child to her too?” Genie said as she passed Jorm to the old man. “With this kid joining them, I am sure that your wife will be more delighted.”
“Okay, I will bring him.” But instead of looking happier, the old man started to look solemn as he gave a serious look to Genie.
“So Genie, it seems like you have seen that space crack then.”
“I have seen it clearly with my two eyes.” Genie replied as she stared at the old man with determination. “Since it appeared there at the Final Trial, I have decided to go there and personally deal with it.”
“Well, good luck with that.” The old man said as he started to fly away, bringing the sleeping Jorm with him.
But before the old man could be fully gone, he said a sentence which prompted a shiver on Genie.
“Oh Genie, if you mess this up, I will have no choice but to punish you, ok?”
“Sheesh, I understand, old geezer…”
