The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 96
Chapter 96: Dreamworld
Fang Lin stared defiantly at the bratty boy, as if he was daring him to continue.
Upon seeing this, the boy smiled, as if he already knew what Fang Lin was thinking,
“So, you want to know what happened to you earlier? Very well, since you got this stone fragment for me, I can tell you some things at least.”
The boy flourished his hands as he exaggeratedly set the syringe and the stone fragment down on the table. He stared in the distance as he said,
“That place you were sent to was the Dreamworld.”
“Dreamworld?” Even with Fang Lin’s background in the Fang Clan, he had never heard of the dreamworld. “Is that supposed to be a powerful world?”
Surprisingly, Fang Lin regained the ability to speak. He wasted no time as he cursed the boy.
“Powerful world?” The boy chortled as he seemed amused by Fang Lin’s query. He ignored Fang Lin’s cussing as he said, “That’s an understatement! The Dreamworld was comparable to a Ninth Stage Planet!”
Fang Lin did not expect to be sent to such place. It’s a Ninth Stage Planet! Planets that reached this Stage have their own consciousness already and can be considered to be capable of thinking and rational thought.
As such, these planets usually hide to be not seen by Ninth Stage Practitioners. And even if they were seen, the battle prowess of such planets was way higher than compared to a Ninth Stage Practitioner. Heck, they can even regulate which and what can reside on their planet.
“The Dreamworld, just like the name said, was the place of dreams. It was formed from the combination of the dreams of all beings in the material universe. All kinds of beings with ability to at least think always have their dream. Even the planets that developed their own thinking dream too!”
The bratty boy’s voice turned shrill as he continued to speak.
“All of those dream fueled the creation of the Dreamworld! Because of the nature of dreams, anything on the dream world were fluid, changing at any instance. Even the living beings that were created in there were volatile, with them not staying on a single form!”
“Those who can only resist the changes in the Dreamworld were foreign objects and beings! As long as they are not of the Dreamworld, any object or person that goes there will retain their own form.”
“Because the Dreamworld has its own sentience, it usually hides itself from detection. Coupled with the fact that it represents the dreams, this world was really difficult to find.”
“Then how did you make me go there?” Fang Lin felt that what the boy said was highly plausible. But he had to make sure that this brat was not just fooling him.
“Actually, there are two ways to go to the Dreamworld:”
“First, you must find the actual location of the Dreamworld. Then you will enter it with your real body”
“The second way was to use your soul form to venture the Dreamworld through your dreams.”
“Because the Dreamworld originated from dreams, a person can access the Dreamworld via dreams. But because dreams happen at the mind of all beings, objects at the material form had no way to travel through dreams. Only objects at the soul form can travel in dreams.
The boy smiled upon seeing Fang Lin’s confused expression. “Well, those who can only use their soul form to travel the Dreamworld were those with powerful souls. As for how to start the travel the dreamworld, a practitioner with a powerful soul had to put himself on a psychedelic hallucination.”
Fang Lin shook his head upon realizing that they had to get ‘high’ just to travel in the Dreamworld. Fang Lin hated drugs, and he always did his best to avoid it.
“Those at the Fourth Stage has the ability to materialize their souls and travel the Dreamworld directly. But because of the Dreamworld’s sentience, it kills off any kind of soul form that approaches it. Even those at the Ninth Stage who dares to go in their soul form will be killed off easily in the Dreamworld. Only in some rare cases that a soul form can go inside the Dreamworld and come back alive.”
“In that case, how did I survive?”
“Hahaha! I actually did not expect you to survive!” The boy cackled as he hungrily looked at Fang Lin. Fang Lin could see that the boy’s eyes seemed to want to probe Fang Lin’s insides.
“Because of my talent in death arts, I have developed a powerful soul. But I soon realized that my soul power was not enough to travel the dreamworld. Then earlier, I saw you.” The boy’s eyes turned red as he stared at Fang Lin.
“I felt that you had a really powerful soul, comparable even to a Fourth Stage Practitioner! Never in my life I had seen something like this!”
“At that moment, I realized that I can experiment on you about the Dreamworld. You are a special case. Someone at the First Stage with the soul power comparable to those at the Fourth Stage. Maybe the Dreamworld might spare you.”
The boy paused as he attempted to stop his body from trembling.
“And you really survived! Not only that, but you managed to give me the final fragment of the Pan Gu Divine Tablet!”
“That stone fragment was part of the Pan Gu Divine Tablet?” Fang Lin was shocked upon hearing this.
Who would not be? The Pan Gu Divine Tablet was one of the prized treasures of the Pan Gu Empire! The Pan Gu Empire protected this Tablet too much that not even their citizens knew what it looked like.
Then 100 years ago, the Emperor of the Pan Gu Empire let out a bounty reward. It said,
“The one who can retrieve the Pa Gu Divine Tablet shall be rewarded heavily by the Pan Gu Empire!”
Shockingly, the Pan Gu Divine Tablet had been stolen!
As time passed by, the Pan Gu Divine Empire managed to salvage a fragment on the Pan Gu Divine Tablet. It was then that everyone realized that the Tablet had been split into 5 parts. As for the other 4 fragments, the Pan Gu Empire kept mum about it. It was as if they are waiting for all 5 fragments of the tablet to resurface before getting them all.
Fang Lin realized that with him recovering the fifth fragment of the Pan Gu Divine Tablet, the Immortal Continent was sure to be in chaos! Fang Lin himself felt the miraculous effects of the Tablet.
And with his probing earlier, he was sure that the other holders of the other fragments realized that the fifth fragment had appeared. They will surely not waste some time to acquire the fifth fragment.
“Huhuhu… I just want to do some investigation… How did it come to this…” Fang Lin silently lamented to himself as the bratty boy continued his evil laughter.
Meanwhile, in the delayed spirit ship.
Due to the rebellious attitude of the spirit ship, Fang Yu’s travel towards the Solstice Kingdom had been compromised. Because of this, Fang Yu and Tang Ya stayed holed up in their room along with Empyrea and Tang Li.
The adorable baby whizzed in the air as she clearly enjoyed the feeling of being in a high elevation.
Fang Yu actually wanted to go out, but with the recent happenings in the meeting, she decided to stay in the room. Suddenly, Fang Yu paled as she felt her link with Fang Lin turned blurry. Tang Ya saw what happened to Fang Yu as she rushed to check her condition.
“Are you okay Fang Yu?”
“Yes, its just….. my body is acting up now. I think I need to rest on my bed first.” Tang Ya then gingerly set Fang Yu on her bed.
Fang Yu closed her eyes as she attempted to strengthen her mental link with Fang Lin.
Twenty minutes passed by, and Fang Yu managed to feel Fang Lin’s presence again. Fang Yu’s body stiffened, as she absorbed the memory that Fang Lin had about his experience in the Dreamworld. She managed to also hear all the revelations made by the bratty boy.
“S**t! I am so f***ed now!” Before Tang Ya could ask why Fang Yu cussed like this with Tang Li around, they heard a booming laughter that echoed across the ship.
“Hahahaha! So the last piece I have been waiting for had now appeared! Lucky me, it even appeared here in the Tian Ji Empire! I must get this piece before the others does! Hahahaha! Wait….. D**n, the soundproof is not working!” After some seconds of rough scuffling, the noise had completely disappeared.
Fang Lin realized that the owner of the jubilant voice was Ling Tian. As for the words that he uttered, Fang Yu found it really suspicious. If it were others who heard this, they might just think that Ling Tian was off to fight for some treasure.
But with Fang Lin’s discovery, Fang Yu was sure that Ling Tian was talking about the Pan Gu Divine Tablet!
“Hehehe, just you wait Ling Tian,” Fang Yu thought to herself.
“Even though I might look like a villain, I will steal that fragment from you! Wish me luck then!”
