Chapter 1378 – Where There Are People, There Are Rivers and Lakes
The group chatted as they walked towards Feng Baiming’s cave residence. Feng Baiming was the Great Elder of the Profound Clear Sect. Naturally, his cave had the richest concentration of spiritual qi. The amount of spiritual qi in the Jade Clear Mountains surpassed Zhao Hai’s imagination. The spiritual qi was so rich that it had condensed into mist.
Feng Baiming’s cave mansion was large. Inside it was a crafting room, cultivation room, and a lounge. This cave mansion was larger than the mansion in the Six Realms Battlefield. It was also more attractive.
As soon as he saw Feng Baiming’s cave, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but think of slanderous words. Whoever said that Cultivators were pure and didn’t enjoy luxury must have been fooling other people in order to feel comfort.
The group sat inside the lounge. Zhao Hai took out the liquor as well as side dishes. Once the food and wine were presented, Huang Daoran and Feng Baiming didn’t hesitate to eat.
Feng Baiming had been thinking about Zhao Hai’s vegetables ever since his meal with Huang Daoran. Zhao Hai’s dishes don’t contain any impurities and each dish had spiritual qi infused into them. Most importantly, they taste good, very good.
After having some of the liquor and food, Huang Daoran turned to Feng Baiming and said, “Blacksmith, what’s going one? From what I can hear, you seem to be discontented with those fellows?”
Feng Baiming looked at Huang Daoran and said, “You can see it? I am a bit dissatisfied. The people in the Profound Clear Sect are getting more and more arrogant. However, they get weaker and weaker each generation. Nobody dared to offend them, especially Core Disciples, so they became arrogant.”
Huang Doaran looked at Feng Baiming and said, “The Profound Clear Sect is a powerful righteous sect in the Cultivation Realm. It’s understandable for them to be arrogant. And with the strength of the Profound Clear Sect, they have a reason to do so.”
Feng Baiming coldly snorted and said, “What righteous sect. That is just something they tell people. The Profound Clear Sect reached its current position not because of its righteousness, but its strength. Without powerful fists, how would people take the Profound Clear Sect seriously?”
Zhao Hai looked at Feng Baiming and said, “Uncle Feng, if I really get involved with your people, then I might form an enmity with the Profound Clear Sect. Then it would be difficult for us to meet each other in the future.”
Feng Baiming waved his hand and said, “Don’t worry about it. I already talked to the Sect Master about this. The Sect Master also thinks that its time to suppress them. But you shouldn’t go too far.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Then I will be offending the core disciples of the Profound Clear Sect. I’m afraid that I would be offending the elders as well. However, since Uncle Master has spoken, this nephew will do it properly.”
Feng Baiming laughed and said, “Good, pressure them. Make sure those fellows know that they aren’t the only people in the world. Show them how large the sky is. I’m even thinking that they couldn’t enter your eyes.”
Zhao Hai just smiled and didn’t say anything. Huang Daoran looked at Feng Baiming, then to Zhao Hai and said, “Blacksmith, with Little Hai’s current strength, I’m worried that those people would look for him.”
Feng Baiming replied, “Who are they? You mean those people?”
Huang Daoran nodded his head. Feng Baiming’s expression couldn’t help but turn serious. He looked at Zhao Hai who seemed confused. Then he turned to Huang Daoran and said, “You haven’t told Little Hai about this yet?”
Huang Daoran nodded, then he sighed and said, “I don’t know if I should tell Little Hai or not. It’s possible that it would be very bad for him.”
Feng Baiming laughed and said, “Not necessarily. This might not be a good thing for you, but Little Hai still has room to grow. Little Hai has yet to reach Transcending Tribulation. We can say that he’s at a bottleneck. He needed a bigger stage to gain experience. Isn’t that place just appropriate for him? Don’t imitate those old fogies in the Sect. Each one of them doted on their disciples and protected them from gaining experience from outside.”
When Huang Daoran heard Feng Baiming, he thought about it for a moment before he smiled and said, “Right, right. Like you said, Little Hai needs to gain experience.”
After he said that Huang Daoran turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, with your present strength, it is right for you to know about this matter. The place we are talking about is named the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. It’s a place similar to the Six Realms Battlefield. But compared to the Six Realms Battlefield, this place is much more complex.”
Zhao Hai’s body shook. His eyes couldn’t hide his shock. He got more information than what Huang Daoran wanted to say. Maybe Huang Daoran thought that Zhao Hai was just shocked by the name of Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. But this wasn’t the case. Zhao Hai was shocked by the implication behind that name.
Nobody was clearer than Zhao Hai that the Six Realms Battlefield was a place that was created by someone. In other words, it was someone’s dimension. But now, there was something called the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. The name alone showed how bigger it was than the Six Realms Battlefield. Was this created by someone as well? If this was the case, then who was standing behind the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield? What was the relationship between this person and the person who created the Six Realms Battlefield? Why did such a person create such a huge dimension?
Zhao Hai’s thoughts revolved at lightning fast speed. However, he couldn’t express his thoughts. Huang Daoran and Feng Baiming just thought that he was surprised by the news and nothing else.
Feng Baiming looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, don’t think that the World of Cultivation is the only thing in the universe. There are more places like the World of Cultivation that we still don’t know. Our World of Cultivation could be considered to be a medium-grade power in the vast universe. The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield gathers tens of thousands of powers like the World of Cultivation. In the past, your Master went there when he reached the Transcending Tribulation stage. But just three months after he went there, he suffered a severe wound. But he was still able to gain a lot of experience in that place. I went to that place as well and suffered the same fate. I was beaten out in three months. If you go there, you have to help us settle some grudges.”
Huang Daoran solemnly said, “The weakest people in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield are Nascent Soul Experts. Moreover, those Nascent Soul Experts are the strongest among their level. They could even fight against a Transcending Tribulation Expert. Little Hai, if you are really called to that place, remember to not underestimate anybody. Otherwise, you will suffer a loss.” Zhao Hai nodded.
Feng Baiming smiled bitterly and said, “It’s shameful to say it, but the World of Cultivation’s strongest combat power in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield isn’t our Profound Clear Sect, nor is it the Devil Realm. Instead, it’s the Buddhists. It’s precisely because the Buddhists were our main power in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield that they have a high status in the Cultivation Realm. Little Hai, you are strong, but you must remember to keep a good relationship with the Buddhists when you get to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield is no better than the Six Realms Battlefield. In the Six Realms Battlefield, you could attack your enemy without worrying about your allies stabbing you from behind. However, in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, if you offend those monks, those guys will definitely plot behind your back. So you must be careful.”
Zhao Hai knit his brows and said, “Plot against me? Why? Aren’t they from the same World of Cultivation? What advantage would they gain plotting against me?”
Huang Daoran looked at Zhao Hai, then he sighed and said, “Advantage? The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield has the greatest benefits. It has much more rare materials than the Six Realms Battlefield. Actually, the Profound Clear Sect was once the main combat power of the World of Cultivation in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. However, we were betrayed and besieged by other people. In the end, all of the combat forces were killed. Then the Buddhists used this opportunity to rise up. We suspect that the people behind the betrayal had something to do with the Buddhists. They betrayed the Profound Clear Sect in order to get the benefits of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Therefore, Little Hai, you shouldn’t trust those monks. They aren’t good people.”
Zhao Hai knit his brows. To be honest, he loathed infighting. However, there was a saying, “Where there are people, there are rivers and lakes”. This was truly the case. It seems like the Cultivation Realm’s waters weren’t as calm as the surface.
Huang Daoran looked at Zhao Hai’s appearance and said, “Little Hai, don’t think too much about it. The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield is truly a good place. Everything that’s in the Six Realms Battlefield, the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield has more.”
Feng Baiming nodded and said, “Going to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield will be good for you.”
Zhao Hai gave them a nod as he said, “Master, Martial Uncle, don’t worry. If they really summon me, then I’ll have no choice but to go. Also, I want to have a look at this Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. I want to see what the people from the other realms are like.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Feng Baiming couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “I know you’d say that. Hahaha. Good, I like your enthusiasm. Remember, you need to tread carefully. I heard that the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield hasn’t been calm recently. The Floating Temple seems to have brought the Ten-thousand Transformation Staff out.”
Huang Daoran stared, “They took out the Ten-thousand Transformations Staff? That’s impossible. That is the Buddhist Path’s most precious object. How could the Floating Temple take it out? Did something serious happen in the battlefield?”
Feng Baiming shook his head and said, “At this time, I don’t know. I only obtained this piece of information and nothing else. However, the fact that they took out the Ten-thousand Transformations Staff only means that things aren’t doing well.”
Huang Daoran nodded and said, “It really seems like something serious happened in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. But because of this, they might summon Zhao Hai much sooner. They would need more people for the battlefield.”
Feng Baiming agreed, “Those monks are really cautious. They never call veterans like us over. Instead, they take in newcomers. I think those guys are reluctant to send us back to the battlefield. They’re afraid that we’ll take their fatty meat.”
Huang Daoran sighed and didn’t say anything. This was something that they couldn’t do anything about.
