Obtaining A Goddess As A Mount (1)
Translator: Mr Voltaire
The Evil Black Dragon’s appearance caused all of the Sunrise City’s residents to pale and cry out in shock. Currently, the Cherry Blossom God Representative was in the final stages of the City Lifeline restoration, and could not be disturbed under any circumstances. Otherwise, she would have worked for nothing… moreover, for her to singlehandedly perform a miraculous deed like restoring the City Lifeline, she would have exhausted nearly all of her Moon God power. Right now, she could be said to be completely spent. Even if she was not tied down by the restoration of the City Lifeline, she would not be a match for the Evil Black Dragon.
The Evil Black Dragon’s anger and rage could be felt from even 10,000 metres away. As soon as it appeared, it understood the situation the Cherry Blossom God Representative was in. How could it let such an opportunity go? Black flames erupted on its body as it leapt through tens of feet. It concentrated all of the remaining strength it had as it heavily attacked the Cherry Blossom God Representative.
The space between them was violently distorted, while the Evil Black Dragon’s desperate attack struck air. Only an afterimage of the Cherry Blossom God Representative was left where he had attacked. The real Cherry Blossom God Representative appeared 100 metres away and maintained her pose. However, despite the situation, she did not stop repairing the Sunrise City’s City Lifeline. Because she had to divert some energy to teleport, her aura became extremely chaotic and her face became incredibly pale. Under her Moon God power, the City Lifeline once again began to take shape, and was nearly perfectly repaired.
However, the Evil Black Dragon immediately attacked again. It simply wouldn’t give up such a rare opportunity. As it let out a heaven-shaking roar, the Cherry Blossom God Representative, whose aura was so chaotic that she couldn’t use any of her strength to defend or evade… because once she split her energy, the nearly-completed City Lifeline would once again fall to pieces. Her choice was to continue to use all of her power to mend the City Lifeline and allow her defenceless body to receive a blow from an Ancient Beast. She was very clear as to the consequences of being hit by Mysterious God grade energy while completely defenceless. However, as a Moon God Representative, she couldn’t abandon her duty, nor could she, for her own safety, give up on repairing the City Lifeline. In her heart, the main city’s City Lifeline was essential for countless residents and players, and was thus more important than herself.
Just when she was about to despair, a figure suddenly appeared in front of her. The Evil Black Dragon’s attack arrived and heavily landed on that person.
A loud explosion and a roar sounded out. The figure didn’t move, but the Evil Black Dragon was sent bouncing back like a rubber ball into the distance.
The Sunrise City’s residents’ hearts were all in their throats. However, they suddenly saw that the Evil Black Dragon, which was just about to attack the Cherry Blossom God Representative, fly backwards, while a black dot had appeared in front of her. After going silent for a moment, they erupted into cheers… During that moment of life and death, an unexpected saviour had appeared, and had blasted the Evil Black Dragon back. How could they not wildly celebrate? It was just that they were too far away, and even though a telescope, they could only see a blurry black dot. No one knew… that it was actually a player.
Seeing the Cherry Blossom God Representative in such dire straits, and facing the possibility of death… A Chinese player who had nothing to do with the East Ocean Continent, who should have even be glad, and wished that the disaster would have been 10 times as great. However, when he thought of the Cherry Blossom God Representative dying, his heart simply couldn’t accept it or allow it. As such, he took out a Spatial Orb and blocked in front of her with the Evil God’s Mask, saving her life.
Seeing the Evil Black Dragon that had been blasted back by him, Ling Chen suddenly came back to his senses and self-mockingly shook his head… Had his heart become soft? Could it be that he had toyed around with her for so long that he had toyed out some emotions?
Ling Chen’s actions weren’t actually so inexplicable. There was only 1 reason… the Cherry Blossom God Representative was an absolute beauty! As a Moon God Representative, she possessed beauty far superior to humans. To any normal man, beauty was something that was irresistible, much less the Cherry Blossom God Representative’s extraordinary beauty. Even if it wasn’t theirs, no one liked to see beautiful things being destroyed. Conversely, if the Cherry Blossom God Representative was so ugly that people wouldn’t be able to eat after seeing her, Ling Chen definitely wouldn’t have saved her. In fact, he probably would have joined the Evil Black Dragon in killing her.
This was why it was said that a woman’s greatest asset was her beauty. Just like that, the Cherry Blossom God Representative had escaped a horrific end simply because of her beauty.
Looking at Ling Chen’s back, the Cherry Blossom God Representative felt astonished and shocked, and simply couldn’t believe what was happening. The look in her eyes became complicated. She completely hated Ling Chen, and the hatred would probably still be with her until the end of her life. How could she not recognise the person who had blocked the attack in front of her? She never would have thought that at such a critical moment, the person who saved her would have been the person who had humiliated her so much; the player who she hated the most!
Ling Chen somewhat helplessly said, “Forget it, forget it, since I’ve already helped, I might as well help you to the end, and we’ll be even. However, I can only last for about 30 seconds. If you can’t restore the City Lifeline within 30 seconds, I can only run away.”
After speaking, Ling Chen didn’t even look back as he rushed towards the Evil Black Dragon in the distance. The Cherry Blossom God Representative looked at him in complete shock, her feelings were extremely complicated. To anyone else, a player facing off against a Mysterious God grade beast for 30 seconds would be a complete joke. However, she knew he could do it. Even she was unable to resist those shocking skills of hers, much less the Evil Black Dragon, which was much weaker than her.
However, she simply couldn’t understand why he had taken such a risk to save her… He was facing an Ancient Beast!
As soon as Ling Chen appeared, the Evil Black Dragon’s pressure shifted from the Cherry Blossom God Representative and locked on to him. This was evidently the human who had attacked him and viciously humiliated it! It would never forget this human! The Evil Black Dragon raised its body up and charged towards Ling Chen as it hoarsely roared, “It’s you!! It’s you!!!”
“That’s right, it’s me.” Facing this Ancient Beast, Ling Chen casually laughed, and didn’t look scared at all. He looked at the ruined Sunrise City as he smiled, saying, “Little friend Black Dragon, you’re probably quite curious who it was who destroyed the City Lifeline, right? Heheh, it probably feels terrible to be falsely accused, right? Heheheheh!”
The Evil Black Dragon’s eyes shot out with a bloody light as it furiously roared, “It was you?!”
“Bingo! Congratulations for guessing correctly!” Ling Chen laughed even louder, “Look at how awe-inspiring the scene of the City Lifeline being destroyed was. It was like a sci-fi movie… Ah, woops, you don’t know what a sci-fi movie is. Pretend I didn’t say anything. Look at all the residents. Countless of them died or were injured, and the ones who survived are now all homeless and are crying in the wilderness. Look at me, I’m quite happy, right? Hahaha, do you know why I’m so happy?”
Ling Chen didn’t speak too quickly or too slowly, but more than half of what he said was rubbish. He only had a single goal… which was to stall for time. The 30 seconds he promised the Cherry Blossom God Representative included this stalling time.
Ling Chen gave a completely harmless smile as he continued to speak, “It’s because I’m not even from this continent. Even if this continent’s sky fell down, it wouldn’t concern me at all. In fact, I would be so happy that I’d laugh in my dreams.”
Even if the Evil Black Dragon was an idiot, it would understand the implications of Ling Chen’s words. Its breathing became heavier as its gigantic eyes widened and contracted violently, as if they were going to burst, “You’re… messing… with… me?!?!”
“Bingo! Congratulations for guessing correctly again! I’m just a little player from another continent; surely I can’t destroy a main city by myself. As such, I thought of you. I got you out to harm those residents while I destroyed the City Lifeline. With your exceptional cooperation, this plan was carried out flawlessly!”
Ling Chen’s words made the Evil Black Dragon feel as if its head was going to explode. It realised that it, the emperor of the Black Dragon Clan, had been led by the nose by this human and had become a tool. It had fallen into this desperate situation because it had been unknowingly cooperating with the human that it hated most, and had even taken the blame for everything. Boundless anger caused its reason to instantly disintegrate and its hatred towards Ling Chen was now thousands, if not tens of thousands, of times greater than towards the Cherry Blossom God Representative.
“I’ll completely destroy you!!”
The Evil Black Dragon leapt towards him and its baleful aura made the air extremely heavy. Facing its crazy attack, Ling Chen did not move and received the attack without any hesitation. The Evil God’s Mask released a roar, and the Evil Black Dragon gave a pitiful cry. Ling Chen coldly smiled and activated Moon Grief, after which he also activated Broken Shadow. He didn’t even bat an eyelash as he effortlessly dodged the Evil Black Dragon’s useless attacks.
The Evil Black Dragon’s body was simply too big. Even if it normally attacked, it could cover a very large range. Otherwise, with Moon Grief activated, Ling Chen wouldn’t even need to use Broken Shadow. The Evil Black Dragon’s roars were ear-splitting, and its claws and massive tail swept through air continuously, causing the wind to howl. Ling Chen’s body agilely dodged around the black figure, purposely taking it away from the Cherry Blossom God Representative. The Evil Black Dragon was unable to touch him even once, and he would even occasionally find an opportunity to attack… Although it didn’t even count as tickling this Ancient Beast.
Under the Libra Orb’s effects, Ling Chen continuously activated Moon Grief twice, which tied the Evil Black Dragon down for nearly 20 seconds. When the second Moon Grief was about to expire, and Ling Chen was about to use Moon Shadow, an incredibly weak voice suddenly sounded in his ears, “Quickly… freeze it!”
This voice came from the Cherry Blossom God Representative!
