Chapter 1342 – Taking the Initiative
But what made those from the Machine Field confused was that Zhao Hai didn’t appear in Iron Bridge Fort. In fact, he couldn’t be seen in Yuan’s fort or any other place. It was as if he vanished.
However, nobody blamed Zhao Hai. This was because everyone in the Machine Field knew that Zhao Hai wasn’t a coward. If he didn’t come out, then there must be a reason.
And they didn’t guess wrong. There was indeed a reason why Zhao Hai didn’t appear. Zhao Hai already knew that Huang Daoran was coming. Although he didn’t know what Feng Baiming and Huang Daoran talked about, he was sure that the Yellow Daoist was coming for him. Zhao Hai might not know what to do before, but he does now. He needed to boldly go forward!
Go boldly forward! Go out and meet Huang Daoran face to face! This might seem crude, but this was what Zhao Hai decided on. If he really made the Lock Mountain Range participate in the fight against Huang Daoran, then the Lock Mountain Range would receive massive losses. This won’t bode well for the Machine Field. The other realms could then easily take advantage of them.
Zhao Hai didn’t want things to get too bloody in the Six Realms Battlefield. This was because he knows what the Six Realms Battlefield really was. It was a subspace owned by another person, just like the Space. Would he want people to wreck the Space? Impossible. If people really wanted to wreck the Space, then Zhao Hai doesn’t mind wrecking them first. The owner of the Six Realms Battlefield might have the same thought.
Zhao Hai was still too weak. He was almost ready to show all he had against someone like Huang Daoran, not to mention the owner of the Six Realms Battlefield. If that person gets angry, then he could eradicate Zhao Hai in an instant.
Because of this, Zhao Hai decided to take the initiative and head to battle. It would be best if he could force Huang Daoran to retreat. And if Huang Daoran doesn’t retreat, then he can only think of another way.
If Huang Daoran really wanted him dead, then he would make Huang Daoran suffer. He already knew that Huang Daoran’s background was quite shallow. He’s just an elder of the Pink Clouds Pavilion. If Huang Daoran came with real killing intent, then Zhao Hai would proceed to hunt down people from the Pink Clouds Pavilion. He already mapped quite a large area of the Cultivation Realm. And in those mapped areas were branches of the Pink Clouds Pavilion. Zhao Hai doesn’t believe that Huang Daoran wouldn’t back down if he started damaging the Pink Clouds Pavilion.
As he sat in the Space, Zhao Hai looked at Huang Daoran then he turned his head to Laura and said, “Is everything ready?”
Laura nodded. “It’s prepared. The Undead are ready to take action. The beast-shaped Undead have been armored and installed with magic cannons. Lizzy, Megan, and Margaret will command them. We also have around a thousand Silverback Gold-winged bugs that have been trained. Brother Hai, will you bring the bugs out one by one?”
Zhao Hai thought about it and said, “Let’s release them one by one. First we’ll send out the beast Undead, then Jian Ding Shan along with Li Lin and the others. Those people are already known by anyone, there won’t be a problem in taking them out.”
Laura nodded, then she looked at the monitor and said, “Brother Hai, where do you plan to fight?”
Zhao Hai replied, “We’ll do it in the core battlefield. There’s no need to fight in the Machine Field’s partially controlled territory.”
Lizzy nodded, then she looked at Huang Daoran’s position. She frowned and said, “What is Huang Daoran doing? He’s still in the Cultivation Realm’s partially controlled territory. With his speed, he should be out by now.”
Zhao Hai also knit his brows as he said, “It is indeed weird. Forget it, let’s not think about that. I think Huang Daoran will arrive in the core battlefield soon.”
Laura and the others nodded. Zhao Hai waved his hand and called Jia Ding Shan over. As soon as Jia Ding Shan appeared, he immediately bowed and said, “I have seen the Young Master.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Get ready and wait for my signal before going out. Call Li Lin and the others for me. If they dare to resist, inform me immediately.”
Jia Ding Shan nodded and said, “Young Master, rest assured. I’ll take care of it. They won’t dare rebel. After all, they already swore to their heart’s demon.” Zhao Hai nodded and waved his hand. Jia Ding Shan gave him a bow before leaving.
There weren’t many things that needed to be prepared. Those needing preparation had already been dealt with. After a while, everyone sat inside the villa with heavy expressions on their faces.
This would be the hardest battle Zhao Hai would undergo ever since his transmigration. Zhao Hai had a similar level of strength to his past enemies. But this time, the other party’s strength was on a completely different level. This time, it would certainly be a great battle.
Seeing everyone’s expressions, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Alright, there’s no need to worry. We reached our current position by going against strong winds and waves. What else are you afraid of? Rest assured. Even if Huang Daoran is very strong, it would still be very hard for him to kill me. I can hide inside the Space and take all the time I can. It’s just that I don’t want the Lock Mountain Range to participate in our fight. But if Huang Daoran really forces me, then I’ll retreat. So don’t worry.”
Laura and the others nodded. They were also clear that Zhao Hai wouldn’t die just so that he could prevent those from the Lock Mountain Range from dying. This was because Zhao Hai cannot die. He was now responsible for the lives of too many people. At this point, the population inside the Space was no less than the Machine Field’s. If Zhao Hai died, then these people would be buried along with him. Sacrificing these people so that the Machine Field doesn’t get any losses? Even Zhao Hai wouldn’t do such a thing.
Zhao Hai looked at the monitor, his eyes turning fiery as he said, “Alright, it’s time to step on the stage. I didn’t expect Huang Daoran to attract a lot of spectators. It seems like these people wanted to get some good bargains.”
Laura and the others looked at the monitor and saw that there were a lot of people following behind Huang Daoran. These were people from the other realms. Although they didn’t deliberately hide their presence, they still stayed inside the forest; away from Huang Daoran’s vision. Huang Daoran’s reaction was also quite strange. He just ignored these people as he proceeded towards the Core Battlefield.
Huang Daoran’s face was calm as he flew forward. He wanted to see how Zhao Hai plans to deal with him. To be honest, he hoped that Zhao Hai would fight him. This way, things wouldn’t go out of control. At the same time, it would make him appreciate Zhao Hai more. After all, Zhao Hai was also practicing a cultivation method and he was strong. If such a person didn’t dare fight with him, this meant that they lost their vigor. And once they lost their vigor, it would be very hard for them to reach Transcending Tribulation.
As he thought of this, Huang Daoran noticed a shadow suddenly appearing a hundred meters in front of him. Huang Daoran stared before discovering that it was Zhao Hai standing there, smiling as he waited.
Seeing Zhao Hai, Huang Daoran laughed. After some time, he stopped and then looked at Zhao Hai as he said, “Good, Zhao Hai, good. Hahahaha. You’re worthy of being valued by this old man. You actually came to me on your own. It seems like you’re planning to fight his old man here in the Core Battlefield?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he bowed and said, “I have met Daoist Huang. This one wants to fight in the Core Battlefield so that the Lock Mountain Range doesn’t suffer too much. At the same time, we could avoid shameless leeches who want to grab things for cheap.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Huang Daoran laughed, “Good, good. Hahaha. We cannot make those shameless leeches get what they want.”
Zhao Hai looked at Huang Daoran, then she said, “Daoist, you and this Zhao Hai didn’t have any enmity before. Why must we go through this hardship? Isn’t there any other way?”
Huang Daoran looked at Zhao Hai, then he smiled faintly and said, “Zhao Hai, you should know that this fight is unavoidable. I saw your strength, but it doesn’t seem like your true strength. I want you to pull out your entire strength. Let me see if you are qualified to stand here in front of me.”
Zhao Hai looked at Huang Daoran, then he said, “Since Daoist said it, then this Zhao Hai wouldn’t dare do otherwise. Forgive me for being impolite.” Then he waved his hand as three layers of Undead appeared beside Zhao Hai and surrounded Huang Daoran.
Huang Daoran sized these Undead up and his expression couldn’t help but change. This was because the Undead humanoids and beast-shaped Undead were all in full body armor. Each armor was loaded with magic formations. Each and every one of them were armed to the tooth.
And this wasn’t the end. Zhao Hai issued a loud roar as four shadows appeared not long after. These four shadows were Jia Ding Shan as well as Li Lin’s group of three. These four stood behind Zhao Hai. Being Nascent Soul Experts, the aura emitted by the four was quite imposing.
Zhao Hai waved his hand once more as his flying swords fanned behind him like a peacock’s tail. These swords numbered about a thousand. There was also the crescent moon spade in his hand.
Looking at Zhao Hai’s preparations, Huang Daoran didn’t move and just waited. His face turned serious. It seems like Zhao Hai’s fighting prowess was huge, this was unexpected.
At this time, Zhao Hai waved his hand for the third time. Then Huang Daoran noticed a giant bug underneath Zhao Hai. This bug were making threatening gestures. All of the bugs’ eyes were looking at him with looks of slaughter.
Huang Daoran could recognize that this bug was a Silverback Gold-winged bug. He stayed in Fabio Planet for quite some time and had fought with these bugs a couple of times. He knew how hard it was to deal with them. He recalled that back when Zhao Hai was fighting Li Lin and the others, a Silverback Gold-winged bug helped him. But at that time, Huang Daoran didn’t believe it. This was because he knew that the bug race couldn’t be subdued. There had been a lot of Cultivators who tried to tame the bugs in Fabio Planet, but all of them failed. These bugs don’t know how to surrender, the only thing in their minds was killing.
Before this, Huang Daoran thought that Zhao Hai only had a bug that looked the same as a Silverback Gold-winged bug. But now he discovered that it was a genuine Silverback Gold-winged bug!
