Swallowed Star - Chapter 622 Gamble
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation Nation“You do have some guts to come and meet me.” Fantasy spirit emperor looked down at Hong from her huge throne above. Smiling and saying softly, “Aren’t you afraid I might just order someone to kill you in reality?”
With her power, just one order alone.
There would definitely be many undyings in the Ganwu universe country fighting to kill Hong.
“I am afraid indeed!” Hong said respectfully.
“Haha…so you do know fear too.” Fantasy spirit’s voice was like the most beautiful instrument in the world, giving the most exceptional performance. It enticed anyone who listened. “You are afraid, and yet you still came?”
“I’m afraid of death and afraid of not being able to do many of my wishes.” Hong said respectfully. “However, there are certain things that I cannot back down from just because of fear. Qing Qing honestly treats me well, how can I be a coward and be afraid of death? No matter what, I have to do all I can in every way…even if I’m killed or destroyed, I won’t regret it.”
Fantasy spirit looked at Hong carefully from the throne, gasping with shock.
“Afraid of death but you still must live without regrets?” Fantasy spirit looked at the silhouette below, her gaze becoming somewhat dreamy as she muttered. “Dying and getting your soul destroyed is frightening. However, to still go on and do things without regrets…” Her voice resounded 10m around her, no one else within the hall could hear her.
“If only he, could be like this back then…” Her expression became dreamy. Her eyes were gentle, but occasionally they looked very terrifying too.
The entire hall shook violently, countless peculiar noises resounded within everyone’s ears.
It made Luo Feng, Hong and the group of robed women change their expressions.
“Hm?” Fantasy spirit emperor regained her composure. The sounds disappeared and she gazed at Hong from high above in her throne, “Hong, I’ll give you one chance, a chance to gamble your life!”
Luo Feng’s expression changed.
Gamble his life?
“Please explain Fantasy spirit emperor.” Hong bowed.
“It’s very simple.” Fantasy spirit smiled. “I’ll give you two choices. One, wait until you reach the pinnacle of sector lord and go take part in the war in the outer regions. If your contributions are enough to get you a 1st class medal, I won’t stop you and Qing Qing. Simultaneously, I guarantee I won’t expel her.”
“The second choice is to attempt my 18 levels of Love Illusions! If you successfully pass all 18 levels, I will not stop you and Qing Qing and will guarantee that I won’t expel her.”
“The moment you fail, then I will order for the Universe Mercenary Alliance to send powerful warriors to kill you immediately.” Fantasy spirit emperor’s eyes stared at Hong. “This is a gamble of your life! If you fail, you will die! If you succeed, you’ll have a chance to be with Qing Qing. Be it a loving one, breaking up, marriage, I won’t care.”
“Choosing the first option means you’ll have from now to the time you reach the pinnacle of sector lord to train. I will guarantee too…you’ll have that amount of time to train.”
“Choosing the second option means you’ll immediately attempt the 18 levels of Love Illusion.” Fantasy spirit looked at Hong, “You…do you dare to gamble with your life?”
The atmosphere was tense.
The entire hall was silent, including her disciple the black feathered man, even he did not make a sound. He and the robed women could all feel…Fantasy spirit emperor wasn’t her usual self.
“Big brother!” Luo Feng looked at Hong.
Gamble with his life?
Was this a joke?
If Hong really accepted the gamble and was chased by the Universe Mercenary Alliance people. Even True Yan Emperor wouldn’t have any right to go stop them.
“I choose the second option.” Hong looked up at Fantasy spirit emperor in her throne. “Attempting the 18 levels of Love Illusions, if I fail…you don’t have to send people to kill me, I will immediately head to a branch of the Universe Mercenary Alliance and kill myself before the members stationed there. Also, I will have the entire scene broadcasted live to you, lord Fantasy spirit emperor.”
Fantasy spirit emperor squinted in her throne.
“You are sure you want to attempt the 18 levels of Love Illusions?” she said, “If you choose to take part in the wars at sector lord pinnacle level, you can still live for a very long time, and I can even help you reach that level. I’ll ask you one more time, will you change your decision?”
“No.” A smile appeared on Hong’s face.
Luo Feng looked at Hong beside him, looking at the smile on his face.
That was a smile that represented his will to do anything and everything he could.
Luo Feng was truly worried now.
His big brother’s mental state training was indeed extremely high, akin to a sacred legend of very few from ancient times of earth. However, these illusions weren’t that of fantasy island, but from Fantasy spirit emperor, a being incredibly strong and close to his own teacher True Yan emperor’s level of strength!
They may contain some pressure that could make him crumble.
Fantasy spirit emperor stood up and looked at Hong below. Looking at his eyes, Hong’s eyes didn’t have any sense of hesitation, neither did they have the teeth gritting madness. All they expressed were a solid determination and incisiveness.
“Very good!” She ordered. “Bushla, bring Hong to the Illusion palace, immediately bring him to the 101st level!”
Fantasy spirit emperor vanished immediately.
The black feathered man Bushla replied respectfully and bowed, after which he glanced coldly at Hong and said, “Follow me.”
Fantasy spirit palace erupted. A universe level punk actually wanted to attempt the 18 levels of Love Illusions. The moment he failed he would be killed and his soul destroyed! Immediately many people all about the palace swiftly rushed over towards the illusion palace.
“Your majesty Qing, that Hong has chosen to gamble his life and attempt the 18 levels of love illusions. If he succeeds, Fantasy spirit emperor will not stop your relationship with him and won’t expel you. However the moment he fails, he’ll have to be killed in reality.” Within a quiet pavilion, there stood two young ladies, of which a green robed lady said softly.
Inside the Pavilion.
A short haired lady stood at the door, her slender fingers were gripped so tightly they had gone pale.
“I’m leaving.” The short haired lady said softly.
“Your majesty Qing, Fantasy spirit emperor has ordered this, and no one dares to go against it. I can report everything that happens there to you here, please do not make our lives harder.” The green robed lady said.
The short haired lady’s eyes gleamed fiercely.
The door closed.
This pavilion was an anchor point for when she entered the virtual universe. As long as she entered the network, she would appear here. And now…she was trapped there and couldn’t go out. In reality, she was also stuck within her head ancestor Silver snow official’s god country.
“Big brother Hong.” The short haired lady walked to the windows and opened them.
She didn’t escape, there at the entrance were two Devil and spirit clan ladies with sector lord level power. They were there specially to guard her, and she was only at the universe level. If the other two ladies didn’t go easy on her, how would she escape?
“Don’t do stupid things!” “Don’t do stupid things!” “Don’t do stupid things!” “Don’t do stupid things!” “Don’t do stupid things!” “Don’t do stupid things!” “Don’t do stupid things!” The short haired lady sent mail after mail to Hong.
After a while.
“No problem, wait for me.” Hong replied.
She was silent.
“Big brother Hong, you…I…” The short haired lady lifted her head and looked through the window, gazing at the distant place that pierced through the clouds. That was the Fantasy palace amidst the many other palaces about.
“You have to live!”
Many people had gathered within the fantasy palace, like the clansman of the devil and spirit clan, along with several other disciples of Fantasy spirit emperor.
“I dare say that punk will definitely die.”
“How can he succeed the 18 levels of love illusions. No matter how powerful that universe level punk is, he still wouldn’t be able to succeed.”
“It’s a death road.”
“Look, that’s the punk attempting the 18 levels.”
“Who? That silver armored one?”
“No, the silver armored one is the absolute genius Luo Feng of the Virtual Universe Company. However, the black robed one is the one who is attempting.”
“Wow, that’s Luo feng? So handsome!”
“Don’t be smitten.”
“I feel that Hong’s pretty handsome too, what a pity he has to die.”
Luo Feng and Hong followed the black feathered man Bushla through the walkways. Looking around, into the distance, they could see large numbers of purple eyed ladies. 99% of fantasy spirit palace was made up of women, and these ladies all seemed to be from the spirits and devils ladies, they were all incredibly beautiful, seductive.
“Big brother, your mental state is extremely high. However these illusions…are illusions from Fantasy spirit emperor.” Luo Feng communicated anxiously. “You are strong, but you cannot underestimate the absolute beings of the universe! The moment you fail, you’ll die without a doubt…and there could be pressure within the illusions too! You may get pressured and killed within. Who knows what power lays within these 18 levels of love illusions, even the pressure is extremely strong, wouldn’t you not even have a place to cry?”
An absolute being who knew how to control his strength according to the severity of the situation, may adjust his power according to Hong and use different levels of strength.
Fantasy spirit emperor’s temperament was well reputed to be strange.
She obviously didn’t allow many men to touch her, yet she was seductive. She had an explosive and terrible temper, yet she always pretended to be gentle.
Who would know if she’d set up her illusions to be an absolute death trap?
If she really wanted Hong to die.
Would Hong even have a chance to succeed?
Hong glanced at Luo Feng, “No problem!”
A silhouette appeared at the entrance of the 101st level of the palace. It was of a lady completely covered in a dreamy colorful robe. One could only see her purple eyes, her face was unclear.
Immediately there was silence about.
The ladies and few disciples there went to watch the scene all respectfully went silent.
“You still have one chance to back off now.” Fantasy spirit emperor looked at the distant Hong. “If you wish to retreat, I may look down on you, but at least…you keep your life.”
“If you don’t retreat.”
“Then follow this door and head in!”
Fantasy spirit emperor pointed to the door beside her. “This is the 101st level of the palace. Every level is a level of the Love illusions. When you pass 1 level, just head towards the stairs and proceed! After you enter 102nd level, if you succeed, head to the stairs and continue to the 103rd level…keep heading up, if you successfully exit from the 118th level, you’ve finished it.”
“Otherwise, your life will be gone.” Fantasy spirit emperor looked at hong.
“Big brother!” Luo Feng’s face was filled worry, yet he didn’t know how to convince him.
Hong was just like that, even if a trillion people all tried to persuade him, it wouldn’t even shake his resolve.
Hong smiled and glanced at Luo Feng before heading straight for the door.
He entered the door and with a step, disappeared through it.
“Rumble!” The entire 101st level of the palace immediately became a blur, one couldn’t see clearly what was going on within.
At this time…
Hong already had no way to return.
If he succeeded, he would live.
Failure would mean death!
