The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 82
Chapter 82: Death Trio
While the crowd was busy booing and cursing Fang Lin, they failed to notice 3 persons who arrived in the arena. It was only when one of them coughed loud that the audience noticed them.
“Look, it’s the Death Trio!”
“From what I heard, their leader was able to participate in the top 3 match. Too bad he did not win against his two opponents.”
“Because of that loss, their leader and his teammates made became Outer Disciples. So they are all in the Foundation Establishment now?”
“From what I can see, they all have one Dao Pillar now. Tsk tsk, compared to Li Min, their cultivation speed was slow.”
“Yeah, they are lucky they managed to break through to the Second Stage. Wait, why did Fang Lin just ask for Foundation Establishment Practitioners and not Mana Materializaton Practitioners?”
“Maybe its because he’s at the Immortal Cultivation Path. He wants familiar opponents.”
“That’s logical indeed. But aside from Fang Lin, who do you know who can fight Second Stage while being at the First Stage?”
“The two Sect Heads were able to do that.”
“Hmmph, let’s see if this Fang Lin can continue boasting.”
While the audience were busy murmuring, the aforementioned trio arrived on the arena. They were covered with black cloaks that flapped with each of their step. Even without seeing their faces, Fang Lin could feel the death aura emanating from them.
With Fang Lin’s Emperor Grade Dao, he was able to discern that the Dao Grade of the two followers were at the Mortal Grade, while the one for the leader was at the King Grade.
He gritted his teeth as he realized that the leader will be a little tough to deal with. He can still ignore his Dao suppression. His problem was how to defeat him without showing too much of his strength.
Fang Lin reckons he needed at least a King Grade Dao with three dao pillars or an Emperor Grade Dao with one dao pillar to make him show all of his strength.
So, he will be using the trio in front of him to properly measure his strength.
After the Death Trio arrived, no other competitors arrived. While the crowd was wondering if it was only the three of them, the leader of the trio spoke up. His voiced seemed ghastly compared to the lively voices of the audience.
“We…the Second Stage Practitioners….. decided to send out….. only three opponents……. more than that… will be unfair…”
“Oh…..” The audience have expressions of realization upon hearing what the leader said.
“Haha, Fang Lin! You are lucky they are benevolent with you! Make use of this help well!” One of the cloaked members of the Death Trio snarled at Fang Lin.
The leader raised his hand as he stopped his teammate.
“Bai Chun………, what did I tell you……….. about this……….? Always be calm…… We aim to win over death himself…… Involving ourselves……. with mortal emotions………will be just our detriment.”
“Leader Gu…. I understand!” Bai Chun then bowed towards Leader Gu as he seemed to be enlightened. Bai Chun just gave Fang Lin an irritated look as he went back to his position.
“So, it’s just you three then.” Fang Lin creaked his neck as he looked towards the Death Trio. He seemed to be mocking all of them.
“So, you three are the lackeys of the Second Stage Disciples? I pity all three of you.”
“You!!!!!” Bai Chun and his other teammate barely stopped themselves from rushing towards Fang Lin. Leader Gu on the other hand, seemed to not care about Fang Lin’s provocation. He just replied,
“You clearly………. do not understand……….. how the system……. of the Second Stage Disciple works…… There are certain……….. organizations there…….. We are part……….. of one such organization………. By saying such baseless…….. accusations………, you have now……… incurred enmity………with them……….. Do you still wish……….. to offend us?”
“Offend your group?” Fang Lin laughed upon hearing this. At this moment, the crowd expected him to continue mocking the trio. But what he said surprised them.
“I actually only want to join your organization. You can of course allow me to do that right?”
Will Fang Lin endanger himself by mocking a large group? Hell no! He joined the Immortal God Sect to have a smooth cultivation path. If he just blindly offended everyone he saw, he will have a difficult time surviving. He’s already tired of the cliché of offending everyone he saw.
Even Leader Gu was surprised with what Fang Lin said. From what he can see, Fang Lin had a brash and arrogant personality. Seeing him like this made Leader Gu disappointed with him. Even the crowd agreed with him.
“Boo! Spineless coward!”
“You joined this sect to be strong, yet you are that compliant? Get the hell out of here!”
“Tsk tsk, so you are just one of those ass-kissers huh. How shameful!”
Fang Lin could not help but cry after this. He just wanted to secure a better footing in the sect. How could he know that everyone expects him to be an unyielding character?
To stop the backlash happening now, Fang Lin had to do some damage control! Maybe he had to be arrogant again. So, he pointed towards the two followers of Leader Gu as he said,
“Those two teammates of you, they only have a Mortal Grade Dao. How pathetic! Let them come to me both at once! I can take them both easily!”
But instead of admiring him, what Fang Lin said riled the crowd more.
“What a two-face! No one can trust you now!”
“Earlier you are ass-kissing them, now you are offending them again! Are you that ignorant!”
“Boo! What a nutjob!”
If Fang Lin managed to offend the crowd like this, the Death Trio was of course offended more.
“You have my…….. permission……….. to torment him.” Even the calm Leader Gu was obviously angered. “Make him experience …………..the greatest torment………….. he will ever feel!”
“Hahaha! Feel the wrath of the Death Trio!” Bai Chun and his other teammate rushed towards Fang Lin. Their cloaks billowed as they seemed to be filled with the aura of decay. Even the air around them seemed to have the scent of rotting.
When a living being dies, what happen to its body? Of course, it rots. This was the most basic assumption that any mortal can make after observing a dead body for a long time.
This is the Mortal Grade Death Dao that Bai Chun and his other teammate managed to comprehend.
“Death brings Decay! Decay brings Death!”
Both of them clenched their fists as their fists were filled with the aura of decay. Their Mortal Grade Dao then started to suppress Fang Lin. If it was the normal situation, Fang Lin should have been unable to move, due to the fact that he lacked a dao.
But who was Fang Lin? He had an Emperor Grade Dao!
Fang Lin just shrugged their suppression as tensed his body. Even though he was still unable to apply his Yang Dao on his attacks, he can mimic its principles to amplify his abilities.
The Yang aspect is all about vigor and explosive power. With this principle, Fang Lin stored all the power he can on his arms. Hs muscles bulged as it began to be filled with the qi he gathered. He then recalled what he saw at the creation of the Yang Aspect of the Universe.
Because of his limited cultivation base, he was unable to remember all of it. He was only able to recall a very tiny portion of it.
It was about explosion!
“Ha!” Fang Lin shouted as he punched with his two hands towards the incoming duo. One fist for each one of them.
“What! How can he still move?” Bai Chun and and his other teammate were surprised by this. Their dao suppression had been ineffective! But they had no time to dwell about it as their fists collided with Fang Lin’s.
If their opponent was just a normal one, his fists would have already rotten by now. But Fang Lin was never a normal opponent.
Bai Chun’s and his teammate’s arms were broken upon colliding with Fang Lin’s fist. It was as if Fang Lin’s power suddenly exploded upon contacting their fists! Fang Lin’s punch did not stop moving, as it sailed towards the body of the two.
His punch blasted them outside the arena. Their bodies hit the ground as they lost consciousness. All in all, they only suffered some broken bones. Fang Lin could kill them, but he cannot afford to anger everyone now.
Fang Lin then looked at Leader Gu as he said,
“Seems like your Death Trio shall be called the Dead Trio from now on.”
