The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 471
Chapter 471: Size vs Skill
There was nothing explosive that happened, as the foot of the elephant just paused in mid-air, further increasing the tension felt by the people below it.
And then after 10 seconds of tense waiting, they suddenly saw something that made them whoop in delight.
“Iyahh!!!” The Black Elephant let out a blood-curdling shout as its foot retreated back.
The elephant seemed to be in great pain as it clutched its foot protectively.
And the sobbing sounds that could be heard from the elephant further exemplifies this fact.
“That large monster… had been injured?” The Great General muttered, as if he could not believe what he just saw. He then looked at the area of collision earlier, looking for the old woman.
“If that was the case, then where is the Golden Guardian Beast?”
The Great General did not dare to talk right now, but he was only thinking of one thing, and that was that it was highly likely that the collision earlier had already killed the old woman.
He gave a discreet glance at Illusion Fang Yu, who seems unperturbed by what just happened.
But before Veronica could say something scathing to Illusion Fang Yu, all of them suddenly felt a powerful presence that was approaching them from above.
“No way…” That was all that Veronica could say as he saw who the newcomer was.
The one who approached them was a woman who looked like she was at the peak of her youth.
Her perfect white-skin, her voluptuous hourglass body, and her bewitching face managed to daze all the males that saw her.
Adding the golden clothes that she was wearing, and this woman’s overall appearance lit up the whole place!
But what was more shocking was the fact that the clothes that this beautiful woman wore was the same clothes that Old Meng was wearing before!
Even a toddler can already make the conclusion upon seeing this woman!
“Don’t tell me that you are the granny that Fang Yu summoned earlier?” Veronica muttered as she glared at the beautiful woman. “This is just a trick, right?”
“Oh, this is not a trick, young lady.” The beautiful woman said as she drew forth a spear from her back.
“I am Old Meng, and the old appearance that you saw earlier was just a fake disguise that I use. The appearance that you are seeing right now is my real appearance…”
“Jackpot…” That was all that Fang Lin could think off as he looked at Old Meng, who looked like a heroic beauty right now. “Sorry Old Man, but it seems like you and Old Meng are not fit for each other….” U.p.dated by Box n o v e l. com
As the others marveled at Old Meng’s perfect appearance, Fang Lin focused his observation on Old Meng’s aura and vitality.
When she was in her old form, Old Meng’s vitality was comparable to a wilted tree, which is nearing its death.
But right now, Fang Lin could sense that Old Meng was exuding a vitality that was surprisingly much stronger than Fang Lin’s!
“So you are the one that injured the elephant’s foot then?” Bai Huangdi inquired as his eyes roved all over Old Meng’s body. “It is hard to believe that a body like yours can do those wonders…”
“Hmph! Of course, I am the one who did that!” Old Meng arrogantly said as she twirled her spear. Bai Huangdi and the other males could only watch as Old Meng’s body jiggled at the right places.
“Why, do you want to experience my spear?” Old Meng said as her gaze alternated between Fang Lin and Bai Huangdi.
Old Meng then licked her lips as she said,
“But I think it will be better if you, Bai Huangdi, will spear General Draco with that rod of yours! Hehehe…. You are fine with being the bottom, right, General Draco?”
“!!!!!!!” Both Bai Huangdi and Fang Lin had the urge to run away as they realized that Old Meng seems like a hardcore BL fanatic!
“I just summoned you secretly earlier, and now you are turning against me like this?” Fang Lin thought miserably to himself as he tried to change the topic.
Fang Lin pointed his hands towards the black elephant, who was still crying in pain right now as he said,
“Miss Meng, instead of turning your attention on us, will it be better if you continue on attacking the black elephant? From the looks of it, you will have a great chance of winning!”
Once she heard what Fang Lin said, the only reply given to him by Old Meng was,
“The best that I can do against that elephant is to make it experience some pain with my attacks… As for directly injuring it, my current power is not enough for that…”
“So we are just going to let it be like that?” Fang Lin said as he tried to press Old Meng on making an action. “Won’t that be dangerous for us?”
“Well, I think you do not need to worry about that anymore.” Illusion Fang Yu interjected as she pointed at the elephant.
To everyone’s surprise and relief, they saw that the black elephant was slowly dissipating in the air, as it body began to break down.
The whole body of the black elephant then transformed into a black river which gushed down at the empty riverbank beside it.
“It seems like Demon King Seigneur had undone the summoning of the black elephant…” Fang Yu muttered as he pointed at the river filled with black liquid in front of them.
“Well, at least most of our soldiers are safe for now…” The Great General muttered as he looked as the scattered soldiers around him. “Since we are already here, we shall set camp here first! We will continue moving 6 hours from now!”
“Yes Sir!” The soldiers said as they started on setting up camps.
All of the soldiers are currently jolly, as they felt awed by the power shown by Old Meng. This made them more confident on their invasion, which resulted in a very cheerful atmosphere.
While all of this was happening, everyone saw that Old Meng disintegrated to form a golden liquid which suddenly disappeared in front of them.
She must have been unsummoned by Illusion Fang Yu too.
“That black river…” Bai Huangdi muttered as he glanced at Illusion Fang Yu. “Could this black river be the reason for the massive size of the Black Guardian Beast?”
“That is what I am thinking too.” Illusion Fang Yu said as she approached the flowing black river. She looked at the black liquid flowing through it as she said,
“In my opinion, Demon King Seigneur can use the water of the Ebony River to create his summoned guardian. That was the reason for its massive size.”
Illusion Fang Yu then crossed her arms as she continued talking.
“As for my Golden Guardian Beast, it was created from the concentrated version of the Golden River. Its amount is much, much less compared to the amount that Demon King Seigneur uses, but its quality is better.”
“Oh, I get your analogy now…” Bai Huangdi muttered as he looked at the Ebony River in front of him.
“You can summon a Golden Guardian Beast made from few amounts of Golden Liquid. That may seem bad, but the quality of these Golden Liquid was so high that your Golden Guardian Beast becomes powerful.”
Bai Huangdi then threw some rocks at the Ebony River as he said,
“As for Demon King Seigneur, he can summon a Black Guardian Beast from the entire Ebony River itself. Because of that, it is already a given that his Black Guardian Beast will be of extremely large size. But its quality will be lower, as the Black Liquid used for this summoning is undistilled compared to the Golden Liquid…”
“So what you are saying is that size is not the only way to measure things. It also depends on how you use your weapon…” Illusion Fang Yu replied, ignoring the awkward smile given to her by Bai Huangdi.
“Yeah, you can phrase it like that, but that is not what I am interested in!” Bai Huangdi said as the desire to fight appeared in his eyes. “What I am more interested to know is about the power of the Heirlooms of the other Demon Kings! Are they also like mine? Hehehe, I want to get them all!”
Illusion Fang Yu gave a start as she heard what Bai Huangdi just said. She gave a discreet look at Veronica, who was currently talking merrily with Fang Lin.
Illusion Fang Yu then lowered her voice as she told Bai Huangdi,
“Are you perhaps thinking that the way to win the Final Trial is by collecting all the Heirlooms? Including the ones held by the Demon Kings?”
“I think it is highly related to that.” Bai Huangdi replied honestly.
He tapped his Dragon Emperor as he continued talking.
“As long as you have brains, you will notice that the real source of power of every Kingdom here are the Heirlooms themselves! The special abilities of the Royalty coms from these Heirlooms, and us Heroes can use even more powerful abilities from it! That just tells us that these Heirlooms are something special!”
“This and the other things that I noticed earlier had me convinced that collecting all the Heirlooms is related to winning the Final Trial.” Bai Huangdi concluded his speech as he stood up to leave.
He then walked straight to the tent of Princess Elissa, obviously to have some ‘fun time’ with her.
As she saw Bai Huangdi’s departing back, the only thing that Illusion Fang Yu could do was let out a sigh.
Her eyes then narrowed as she thought to herself,
“Seems like Bai Huangdi already reached the same realization as me. It won’t take long for Veronica to reach the same conclusion too… It seems like I have to make a decisive action now…”
