Chapter 1375 – Self-confidence
Boom! Boom! Boom! Several fighting sounds were heard as two people were fighting. One of them had a chain hammer while the other was using a long dagger-axe.
The two exchanged over a dozen moves. Although their blows were heavy, discerning spectators could see that the two were just comparing notes.
Naturally, the two people were Xiong Li and Lu Dingtian. They were currently secluded in the sand island. The group were staying here in order to improve their strength.
Yuan was at the side looking at the battle. He was much stronger than Xiong Li and the others. And with his rich fighting experience, he would be able to turn them into the right direction.
The weapons that Xiong Li and the others used were now weapons that Cultivators use. And with their years of tempering in the Six Realms Battlefield, they had become more skilled with their own weapons. If Xiong Li and the others were placed in the Cultivation Realm right now, then they wouldn’t suffer any losses against people of the same level.
Xiong Li and Lu Dingtian stopped and then gathered with the others around Yuan. Xiong Li took a sip of wine before turning to the others and saying, “Our progress isn’t bad. But I don’t feel as much improvement as back in the Six Realms Battlefield.”
Dongfang Yu nodded and said, “The spiritual qi density of this place isn’t that much worse than the Six Realms Battlefield. But I don’t feel like I’m making progress compared to back then. If this continues, then how could we lend Little Hai a hand?”
Yuan smiled faintly and said, “Alright. Don’t worry too much about it. With our current strength, we would only be a burden to Little Hai. Also, it’s still too early for you to think about that. I don’t know where Little Hai secluded himself, but it has been too long since he began.”
Xiong Li nodded as his face turned heavy before saying, “I also don’t know where Little Hai is right now. Moreover, he has been in seclusion for a very long time. At this point, I don’t know when he’ll come out. Captain, do you think that Little Hai would be a Transcending Tribulation Expert once he comes out?”
Yuan shook his head and said, “I can’t say how strong Little Hai will become. His cultivation speed is very fast. It wouldn’t be strange if he already reached Transcending Tribulation. It’s also normal if he hasn’t reached it. After all, it isn’t easy to become a Transcending Tribulation Expert.”
As Yuan said that, a new voice was heard replying, “Right, just as Captain said, reaching the Transcending Tribulation Stage isn’t easy.” Everyone stared before they turned their heads towards the direction of the voice. Then they saw Zhao Hai there smiling at them.
Everyone stood up and surrounded Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai also laughed and bugged them. It has been some time since they had seen each other.
After some time, the group calmed down. Zhao Hai looked at everyone and said, “Was that Boss fighting Second Brother? Hehe, it seems like your progress has been quick.”
Xiong Li smiled and said, “You call that quick? We’re still far from you. Right, Little Hai, are you out temporarily? Or have you finished your seclusion?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’ve finished my seclusion. After this seclusion, I wouldn’t spend a long time away anymore for some time. However, I might not have much time to stay. I may go out after a while.”
This caused Xiong Li and the others to look at Zhao Hai, confused. They don’t understand what he was saying. Zhao Hai looked at everyone and then smiled as he said, “It’s possible, but it’s also possible that I won’t. But this matter isn’t something I can decide on. In the meantime, I’ll stay here and wait.”
Xiong Li was puzzled, so he asked, “What do you mean? Is there anything else in the World of Cultivation that can make other people compel you to move? Even the Machine Field’s higher ups couldn’t do that.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “The World of Cultivation has some influences that the Machine Field’s higher-ups couldn’t do anything to.”
Xiong Li and the others stared. The Machine Field might not be the most powerful realm in the World of Cultivation. However, the Machine Field’s higher-ups have never been afraid of anyone. From its establishment up to this time, who have they been afraid of offending?
But as for Yuan, as soon as he heard Zhao Hai, his facial color couldn’t help but change. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, where did you get this information? Are you going to that place?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “I haven’t gotten the news yet. I only heard about it from my master. He said that I might be called to a place by some people. And it also seems like that place is very dangerous.”
Yuan nodded and said, “I’ve heard about that place. The weakest people who can go there are Nascent Soul Experts. And these Nascent Soul Experts are the strongest of their level.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Master said that he went to that place when he reached Transcending Tribulation. He was injured in just a few months, so he came back.”
As soon as Zhao Hai said that, Xiong Li and the others sucked in a cold breath. Huang Daoran was a powerful Transcending Tribulation Expert. Even someone like that was injured in that place. One could see how dangerous it was. Xiong Li looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, can you decline?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “I’m afraid that’s not possible. Alright, this matter hasn’t been decided yet. If I really have to go, then I’ll go take a look. I want to see the place that can injure a Transcending Tribulation Expert.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Yuan couldn’t help but stare. This was because he can hear Zhao Hai’s confidence through his voice. Yuan became curious. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, how strong are you now? If you face your master now, will you be able to win?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and didn’t say anything. However, his expression showed his answer. Yuan laughed and said, “Alright. Hahaha. I know you’re busy, but you still came to see us. We have to drink. If you really go to that place, make sure to make them know that the Machine Field also has powerful experts.”
Xiong Li and the others busied themselves to prepare the table. Naturally, Zhao Hai was glad to drink with them. After sharing a few cups of liquor, Zhao Hai left the sand island and went to Yalei 2.
Yalei 2 was still doing well. Zhao Hai went to see Zheng Li to see how they were doing. Zheng Li and the others were very satisfied with their current life. Colleges have been built on the planet. The teachers of these colleges were hired from other planets by Margaret. Yalei 2 was no longer a barren land, but a famous tourist destination in the Machine Field. Naturally, people were glad to work here.
Additionally, Yalei 2’s environment was very good. Wages were also quite high. There were a lot of people who wanted to come to the planet for work.
After chatting with Zheng Li, Zhao Hai returned to the Space. To be honest, Zhao Hai wanted to teach the Devil Realm a lesson right now. These fellows have been quite ferocious lately, Zhao Hai wanted to clean them up.
However, this wouldn’t be good for the Machine Field. The Devil Cultivators were making their moves in the Six Realms Battlefield and wouldn’t dare to go to the Machine Field to cause trouble. Because of this, Zhao Hai wasn’t able to deal with them. These people were hunting Machine Field practitioners in the core battlefield, causing great losses to the Machine Field’s numbers.
Fortunately, the Machine Field’s response was quick. After the teams used their small nuclear bombs, the Devil Cultivators became restrained. However, they would still attack people from the Machine Field.
Zhao Hai couldn’t make a move in the Six Realms Battlefield, but he could go to the Devil Realm to retaliate. Right now, a lot of places in the Devil Realm have been mapped by the Space. This made it convenient for Zhao Hai to cause trouble. Moreover, with the Sacred Blood Sect making the moves, Zhao Hai decided to deal with them first.
But in the end, Zhao Hai had to give up on this temporarily. The Devil Cultivators weren’t stupid, they might be waiting for Zhao Hai to arrive. Once Zhao Hai causes trouble to the Devil Realm, the Devil Realm might use this as an excuse to attack the Machine Field. One should know that the Devil Cultivators have been eyeing the Machine Field for a long time, they just don’t have a reason to attack. If they attacked without a proper reason, then the other realms would certainly meddle. When the time comes, they would be losing out.
Because of these considerations, Zhao Hai didn’t attack the Devil Realm. The only thing Zhao Hai could do now was to see Huang Daoran. No matter what, Huang Daoran was his master. Moreover, using his relationship with Huang Daoran, Zhao Hai was able to get a connection with the Profound Clear Sect. This was a very good benefit for Zhao Hai.
Although he was a partner of the Profound Clear Sect in name, the only person he knew from the sect was Feng Baiming. It can be said that his relationship with the sect was still lacking. Therefore, Zhao Hai wanted to visit Huang Daoran and see if he could deepen his relationship with the Profound Clear Sect.
Actually, it was very simple forZhao Hai to draw in the Profound Clear Sect. The Profound Clear Sect was actually a heavy user of spirit wine. Although they produced spirit wine before, ever since Zhao Hai’s spirit wine arrived they stopped their production. And their spirit wine wasn’t as good as Zhao Hai’s.
If Zhao Hai increased his supply of spirit wine towards the Profound Clear Sect, he would be able to gain a good relationship with the sect. However, there’s an issue with this plan, Zhen Ling!
Zhen Ling was also Zhao Hai’s business partner. However, she hasn’t met Zhao Hai enough to trust him. Zhen Ling was still vigilant towards Zhao Hai. If Zhao Hai tried to improve his relationship with the Profound Clear Sect, then Zhen Ling might get in the way. Zhen Ling might be afraid that Zhao Hai would undermine her and directly partner up with the Profound Clear Sect.
As he thought about this, Zhao Hai was suddenly alerted. He felt the jade talisman that he gave Huang Daoran light up.
