Chapter 1394 – Robbery
Looking at Zhao Hai and Li Zongdao leaving the cave, Yuan Ding solemnly said, “That kid isn’t ordinary. Just by looking at his courage and abilities, I’m sure that he has a limitless future.”
Yuan Zhen nodded and said, “This kid is truly special. It can be seen from the way he acts. It’s really amazing to think that he was able to reach this stage despite only ascending a few years ago.”
Yuan Ding’s tone dropped as he replied, “I don’t know if his appearance is a boon or a curse for us. Junior Brother, we need to deal with the Xu Race as soon as possible. We cannot afford being troubled by them for a long time.”
Yuan Zhen’s eyes turned vicious as he said, “It wouldn’t be good if we just let them be. Brother, how do we deal with them?”
Yuan Ding replied, “Inform everyone. This isn’t a small matter, so we need to deal with it properly. Normally, the Xu Race just robbed people. I haven’t heard of them targeting a specific group of people. The Xu Race is much weaker compared to the World of Cultivation. They shouldn’t have the guts to go at us like this. It seems like someone wants to deal with us.”
Yuan Zhen coldly snorted and said, “There are still people that want to make a move against us? Brother, let’s go. We can’t just wait here.”
Yuan Ding nodded. Then he took out a jade sword message and released it. The two became quiet. They were only in charge of the newcomer’s area. If they need to do anything, then they have to get commands from above.
Meanwhile, after leaving Yuan Ding’s cave, Li Zongdao turned his head to Zhao Hai and asked, “Little Hai, can we really go out? I’m afraid even Transcending Tribulation Experts would come out to rob us. Are you really confident?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Don’t worry, we’ll be alright. If we really get in danger, I can just use spatial magic to teleport us out. I want to see the strength of the Xu Race’s Transcending Tribulation Experts.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Li Zongdao couldn’t say anything. So he just nodded and said, “Alright, then let’s go.” Zhao Hai nodded, then the three flew out of the newcomer’s residential area.
The three became cautious upon heading out of the residential area. This time, Zhao Hai didn’t make Li Zongdao take his defensive artifact out. Li Zongdao’s artifact was different from Zhao Hai’s. While Li Zongdao’s spiritual qi could get exhausted, Zhao Hai wouldn’t. It would be very dangerous if Li Zongdao couldn’t maintain his best condition when a battle comes.
Because of this, Zhao Hai turned Liquid Silver into its ship form. Then the three got on the ship as it flew out.
Li Zongdao couldn’t help but feel envious of Zhao Hai’s ship. He turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, such a huge artifact, aren’t you afraid of exhausting your spiritual qi? This is the Ten-thousand Realms Battlefield. We need to be in our optimum state at all times.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “It’s fine. Don’t worry.” Hearing this, Li Zongdao had no choice but to stop worrying. Then he shifted his attention to the view outside.
Seeing Li Zongdao, Zhao Hai said, “Brother Li, we’re fine. Don’t be so anxious.”
Looking at Zhao Hai’s calm appearance, Li Zongdao slowly relaxed. Zhao Hai smiled and said, “This time, we’re just going out to take a look. We don’t need to get resources. In any case, we are exempted for a year.”
Li Zongdao nodded and said, “We still need to be careful. The Xu Race is prepared to deal with newcomers like us. If we make a lot of trouble, then they certainly wouldn’t let us off.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “The Xu Race wouldn’t be able to easily deal with us. Don’t forget, Master Yuan Ding and the others are already aware of this matter. If they allow the Xu Race to deal with us, then they would suffer a shortage of manpower. Master Yuan Ding and the others wouldn’t allow this to happen. When the time comes, they would certainly deal with the Xu Race. I reckon the Xu Race isn’t that strong. Otherwise, they wouldn’t resort to this method to deal with us. From what I can see, Master Yuan Ding and the others will take care of this soon.”
Li Zongdao stared when he heard this. Then he thought about it carefully as he nodded and said, “That’s reasonable. Now that Master Yuan Ding and the others know about this matter, they certainly wouldn’t just sit by and do nothing. If they act, then we would be free of worry.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Naturally. But we don’t have to go to the Ironpear Forest now. We went there yesterday. Once the Xu Race discovers that one of them went missing, they would certainly send experts to check it out. Let’s go elsewhere.”
Li Zongdao nodded, his eyes lit up as he said, “Then how about going to Lotus Lake?”
Upon hearing Li Zongdao, Zhao Hai’s eyes also shone, “Alright, Lotus Lake is good. Let’s go there.”
Lotus Lake is also another newcomer region. It was a huge lake, a very large lake. It was famous for having a lot of lotus on its surface. Moreover, these lotus weren’t ordinary lotus, they were Bitterheart Lotus!
Bitterheart Lotuses were high-grade medicinal materials. Its flowers, seeds, and leaves can be used as medicine. However, among them, the seeds had the best effect. It was a versatile material that can be used to cure wounds as well as assist in cultivation. Most importantly, Bitterheart Lotus was an ingredient for a pill that can make one’s heart calm. Although it was just a supporting pill, it could cause one’s cultivation speed to double. The key was the calming of the mind.
One shouldn’t underestimate the effect of making the mind calm. If one had these pills during a critical breakthrough, then their chances of success would be greatly increased.
Zhao Hai looked at the map and then changed the direction of the ship to fly towards Lotus Lake. The two met several people along the way. However, upon seeing Zhao Hai’s ship artifact, they immediately got out of the way.
Ship-type artifacts couldn’t be used by anyone. This was because these artifacts require a lot of spiritual qi in order to use. However, the offensive and defensive strengths of these artifacts certainly made up for it. People who use ship-type artifacts in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield were powerful experts. If they weren’t, then using this type of artifact was akin to courting death. They would risk being robbed by other people, or even killed.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t care. After all, the majority of the people in the newcomer’s region were all rookies. Although there were also Transcending Tribulation experts among this group, they weren’t Zhao Hai’s opponents. Therefore, Zhao Hai wasn’t afraid.
At this point, veteran Transcending Tribulation Experts might not necessarily be Zhao Hai’s opponent. If Zhao Hai went all out, using Liquid Silver as well as Faith Power, then even Severed Soul Experts would need to watch out. It was precisely because of this that Zhao Hai dared act arrogantly.
Li Zongdao could also notice Zhao Hai’s attitude. He was somewhat anxious. It was as if Zhao Hai wasn’t taking the trip seriously.
Zhao Hai and the others didn’t fly as fast as before. So, it would take several hours before they would get to Lotus Lake. Looking outside and finding it boring, Zhao Hai took out a bottle of red wine and gave Mo Sheng a cooked chicken. He poured himself a glass and also gave one to Li Zongdao, then he smiled and said, “Come, Brother Li, it’s still a long road. Taste this red wine I made. Tell me if it tastes good.”
Li Zongdao looked at the red wine and nodded, then he said, “Good, let’s taste it.” He took the glass and took a sip.
Although Li Zongdao hasn’t drunk red wine before, he still understood that he couldn’t drink all of it in one go. After taking a sip of the wine Li Zongdao pouted. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “I have no experience with this type of wine. I don’t know if it’s good or bad.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I can’t tell the difference as well. But when I have nothing to do, I just take a sip or two. No matter what it tastes like, I just drink. If I don’t like the taste, then I’ll just stop.”
Li Zongdao laughed, “Right, no matter how good or bad it is, it still deserves another sip.” After that he took another sip and then smiled as he said, “I quite like it.” Then after he said that, the two of them laughed.
Mo Sheng looked at the two with confusion in his eyes. Then he turned his attention back to the chicken. Zhao Hai already knew that Mo Sheng liked to eat chicken. He fed Mo Sheng other types of food from the Space, but it seems like chicken was what Mo Sheng liked the most. Naturally, when they were outside, Zhao Hai wouldn’t take out beef or rabbit meat, they’re too conspicuous. In the end, Mo Sheng liked the chicken and the spirit wine.
Zhao Hai also tried giving Mo Sheng beer and other liquor to drink. But in the end, he could only give up. Mo Sheng simply didn’t like to drink beer. Zhao Hai didn’t force him as well. In any case, the Space doesn’t lack any food. Mo Sheng can eat whatever he wants.
The group continued to move forward. When they were an hour away from Lotus Lake, they were suddenly blocked. Surprisingly, the one who blocked them was from the Xu Race.
Since it’s possible that a battle would happen, Zhao Hai only gave Mo Sheng chicken and not spirit wine. At the same time, him and Li Zongdao didn’t drink too much red wine.
Zhao Hai noticed the Xu Race first. They weren’t that quick. They had been following Zhao Hai’s group for some time. Zhao Hai just didn’t expect that they would cut off their path halfway.
Zhao Hai stopped the ship and walked out of the cabin. Li Zongdao and Mo Sheng were beside him. Zhao Hai looked at the Xu Race person and then said, “Your Excellency, why did you stop us? Is there something wrong?”
Zhao Hai could see that the other party was a Transcending Tribulation Expert. At the same time, when the Xu Race person saw that Zhao Hai’s group only consisted of Nascent Soul Experts, he couldn’t help but stare. Then a joyful expression appeared on his face.
When the Xu Race person heard Zhao Hai’s question, he couldn’t help but laugh. Then he said, “Kid, this Uncle is doing a robbery. Leave all your valuable things behind. This ship also stays. And this Uncle will let you off. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being impolite.”
