The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 465
Chapter 465: Shadow Demon
“Wait, isn’t my cultivation a little too fast?” Fang Lin murmured as he realized one thing.
And that is that he is already at the Fifth Sub-Realm, which is halfway through the Third Stage!
“There is something weird happening here…” Fang Lin murmured as he looked around him. “Even if the Fourth and Fifth Sub-Realm were easy to pass through, technically, it should not be that quick.”
What Fang Lin said was right as he just realized that he spent around less than a day to break through the Pulse Opening Sub-Realm and the Manifestation Sub-Realm!
No matter how Fang Lin looked at it, that was way too fast, even for him!
It was at that point that Fang Lin’s eyes glinted as if he already realized something.
“Don’t tell me… that my current environment has sped up my cultivation speed?” This was the only reason that Fang Lin could think of.
“Hmm…” Fang Lin then closed his eyes as he inspected the quality of the energy in his surroundings. To his surprise and delight, he saw that the energy concentration around him was way more than the energy at the Planet Thrae!
Not only that, but this energy can also be integrated to the body easier compared to the energy outside.
“So this is the reason for my fast cultivation huh…” Fang Lin muttered as he let out a grin. “The environment here in the Final Trial is very conducive for accelerated cultivation!”
If that was the case, then Fang Lin will fully use this great condition on his advantage.
“Maybe by the end of this Final Trial, I can break through the Sixth Sub-Realm or maybe even the Seventh Sub-Realm!” Fang Lin then repressed his excitement as he tired to calm his emotions down.
“But even with my environment here, haste is still waste.” Fang Lin said as he dusted off his clothes. “I will stop my cultivation for now. As for the Sixth Sub-Realm, only time will tell me the best time that I will break through it.”
Fang Lin then left his storage as he kept the Golden Gourd hidden.
At the moment that Fang Lin went out, he suddenly felt two streams of rising power at the military compound.
Fang Lin looked at the sources of these auras, and he resisted the urge to curse out as he realized the sources of these auras.
One was Bai Huangdi and the other one was Veronica.
Both of them were letting out their power, indicating that they are breaking through right now.
And to Fang Lin’s disappointment, he found out that they have went from Tempering Sub-Realm, all the way to Manifestation Sub-Realm just like him!
“These damn old fogeys!” At this point, Fang Lin realized that he was not the only one who benefited from the better environment.
Even Bai Huangdi and Veronica are affected by it too, as shown by their breakthroughs!
Fang Lin gritted his teeth as he realized that in terms of speed, Bai Huangdi and Veronica will surely overtake him.
After all, the original practitioner stage of Bai Huangdi and Veronica was way higher than Fang Lin’s. Their current cultivation right now was the result of the suppression of the final trial.
Now, Fang Lin’s problem was that both Bai Huangdi and Veronica have already experienced breaking through the Sub-Realms in the Third Stage.
That just means that both of them can easily reach the peak of the Third Stage just by using their experiences before!
Couple that with the good environment in the final trial, and they will really leave Fang Lin behind in terms of cultivation!
“This is not good…” Fang Lin realized that if this keeps on going on, their overall power will surpass him.
“I have to distract them now!” Since both Bai Huangdi and Veronica have just finished breaking through the Manifestation Sub-Realm, there is still a time gap before they can attempt the next Sub-Realm, which is the Formation Sub-Realm.
But Fang Lin can feel that these two freaks will use their experience to break through the Formation Sub-Realm right now!
Fang Lin cannot allow that to happen, as it will jeopardize his plans!
“Woosh~” Fang Lin began to run back to the base, making sure that he was as stealthy as possible.
He let out a sigh of relief as he saw that nobody was waiting for him to come back.
He then closed his eyes as he created the illusion that Illusion Fang Yu also just broke through the Manifestation Sub-Realm.
Both Bai Huangdi and Veronica will surely notice this disturbance.
And that guess was right, as the auras around the residences of Bai Huangdi and Veronica weakened.
Fang Lin was sure that both of them are now monitoring Illusion Fang Yu on her ‘breakthrough’.
“This is my chance!” While the two Heroes were distracted, Fang Lin started to rush towards the Military Barracks situated at the center of the Military compound.
With Fang Lin’s speed, his stealth skills and the fact that the two Heroes were distracted, he was able to reach the Military Barracks with ease.
“Snore….” Fang Lin saw sleeping soldiers inside the Barracks, which made him more careful in his movements.
He looked around him, and he saw that there is nobody awake inside the Military Barracks right now.
Fang Lin then started to crack his knuckles as he slowly muttered,
A figure then leapt out of Fang Lin’s shadow, which started to wantonly attack the sleeping soldiers.
“Enemy alert!!!” All the soldiers in the barracks started to wake up as they saw some of their comrades being attacked by a shadowy creature.
“What the hell? What is a shadow demon doing here? We are near the territory of Demon King Seigneur, not the territory of Demon King Nyx!” One of the soldiers shouted as they clambered to attack the shadowy figure.
Fang Lin, who was mixed in with the crowd, acted like he was angry and anxious as he joined the other soldiers to attack the shadowy figure.
But no matter what attacks the soldiers did, the shadowy figure dodged them with ease.
“S**t!” Upon seeing that its sneak attack has failed, the shadowy figure cursed out as it suddenly left the area.
Everyone in the barracks could only watch as the shadowy figure left, leaving behind dozens of injured soldiers.
Nobody died from the attack, which made everyone sigh in relief.
“Quick! Tend to the injured!” Fang Lin shouted as he approached some of the injured soldiers. They need some medical attention!”
After hearing what Fang Lin said, the soldiers broke out of their stupor as they began treating their injured comrades.
“I could not believe that a shadow demon just dared to attack us here.” One of the soldiers behind Fang Lin muttered. “Why did that shadow demon even come here?”
“Well, at least nobody died.” Fang Lin said as he began wrapping bandages on one of the wounded soldier.
“Yeah, at least we have 0 deaths.” The soldier nodded as he assisted Fang Lin on giving first aid.
“What the hell happened here!” A booming voice suddenly appeared in the military barracks, which made Fang Lin smile inwardly.
He looked at the direction of the sound, and there he saw a livid Bai Huangdi looking at the chaos below him.
Right behind Bai Huangdi was Veronica, who was currently frowning, and Illusion Fang Yu, who looked like she had a fresh sleep.
“Hero!” Every soldier in the barracks began to salute Bai Huangdi as one of them began to talk. “Permission to talk, Hero.”
“You may talk now.” Bai Huangdi said as he approached the injured soldiers. He waved his hands, and a green stream of liquid went out of him which began to cover the injured soldiers.
Moments later, and all the injured soldiers were fully healed. Fang Lin was slightly awed by what he saw as he thought that he wanted to take a closer look on that green liquid.
“Hero, there is a shadow demon that attacked us 2 minutes earlier!” One of the soldiers said as the injured soldiers began to bow in front of Bai Huangdi. “It only left when it saw that all of us are awake…”
“Any casualties that you hid from me?” Bai Huangdi asked as he looked around him. “I do not see any corpses around me.”
“Fortunately, nobody was killed, Hero.”
“Now that makes me suspicious…” Bai Huangdi muttered as he casted a suspicious gaze towards Veronica, who glared back at him.
“What is your problem, huh?” Veronica snapped back as she saw Bai Huangdi’s doubtful gaze.
She then saw that even Illusion Fang Yu was also looking at her with suspicion.
“Woosh~” Bai Huangdi suddenly flew away from the barracks, followed by Illusion Fang Yu and the livid Veronica.
As for Fang Lin, he stayed behind as he tried to mingle with the other soldiers.
“You really are pushing things here, Veronica.” Bai Huangdi said as he and the other two arrived at a spot 5 kilometers away from the military compound.
“What, you think I have something to do with that shadow demon?” Veronica answered back as she placed her hands on her hips. “You must be so delusional to think that I will do something like that.”
“Delusional?” Bai Huangdi tried to not laugh as he placed his palm on his face. “You know that shadow demons are all under the control of Demon King Nyx, which coincidentally, is Jieshu, which is the Yama Prince that you are following!”
“Hmph! I know nothing about this!” Veronica hissed as she gave Bai Huangdi a threatening look. “Do you think I will be that stupid to send a shadow demon to attack some weak soldiers? Hell, I would not do that!”
Veronica then gave Bai Huangdi a venomous look as she continued talking.
“Maybe you are the one that have orchestrated this attack as a way to implicate me. That is more believable than the accusations that you just said.”
“And now I am the one at fault? Wow, you are so stupid to think of that.” Bai Huangdi said as he began to show some intent of attacking. “You think that you can avoid responsibility just by shifting the blame? Good luck with that!”
“Umm… can I say something?” Illusion Fang Yu said as she raised her hands hesitantly. “Do we really need to quarrel about this?”
“Of course we should!” Both Bai Huangdi and Veronica said as they yelled at Illusion Fang Yu. “There is no way for us to resolve this problem without finding the real culprit!”
“Okay then…” Illusion Fang Yu then started to whistle as she tried to drown out the argument between Bai Huangdi and Veronica, which had turned into a shouting match by now.
“Ugh, that’s a lot of logical fallacies that I am hearing right here.”
