Chapter 1397 – Beings You Can’t Offend
But at the same time, ZhaoHai was also curious about this Blackwater. This Blackwater seems like the Myriad Divine Water in the Space. It was also a yin water. How was it formed? Could a lake produce that kind of water? Or does the treasure possess a certain treasure?
Blackwater couldn’t just appear for no reason. It was certainly caused by something. Zhao Hai was most curious about this.
The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was something that was made by other people. There would certainly be treasures in here, just like the Space. The reason the Space was able to develop into its current state was because of the treasures that Zhao Hai brought to it. If he could find some treasures in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, then that would be great.
Zhao Hai wasn’t worried that the treasures he would find in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield would be found by the ones who made it. If they opened the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, then they should have already seen those treasures. Since they decided to leave those treasures be, then they shouldn’t mind other people taking them.
Zhao Hai didn’t make the ship travel fast since he was also paying attention to the surroundings. Although he has the silver needles, he needs to look out for surprises.
The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield wasn’t an ordinary place. Danger was everpresent in this place. Although Zhao Hai hasn’t seen a Blackwater Snake before, according to what he heard from Li Zongdao, they were strong creatures. Most Transcending Tribulation Experts weren’t their opponents. If he wasn’t careful, then he might suffer a loss here.
Li Zongdao was also paying attention to the surroundings, much more than Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai was already strong, so he doesn’t need to be afraid of Blackwater Snakes. On the other hand, Li Zongdao was weaker. To be honest, Li Zongdao could say that Zhao Hai was abnormal for a Nascent Soul Expert.
Before entering the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, Li Zongdao could admit that he had some arrogance in him. After all, he was the most senior core disciple of the Profound Clear Sect. He was also known as a genius expert in the Cultivation Realm. He was an influential figure among Nascent Soul Experts. Although he had a straightforward temperament, he still had pride in himself.
But ever since entering the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield and seeing Zhao Hai make a move, his arrogance vanished immediately. Zhao Hai’s formidable strength exceeded his imagination.
What shocked Li Zongdao the most in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was the amount of Transcending Tribulation Experts. They were everywhere. Meanwhile, Nascent Soul Experts were as common as dogs. Faced with this situation, he wouldn’t dare be arrogant.
Because of this, Li Zongdao didn’t have any thoughts of going out alone and just decided to follow Zhao Hai. This doesn’t mean that he has lost confidence in his strength. Although Li Zongdao was bold, he wasn’t stupid. It’s clear that if he went alone, then others would immediately target him.
This was something that Li Zongdao experienced before. Back when he was just beginning to explore the Cultivation Realm, people swindled him given his character. He was also plunged into danger several times. Although he was able to survive these disasters, he was also able to be smarter the next time.
Meanwhile, Mo Sheng seemed to not care about all of this. He was still eating and followed Zhao Hai. The world was much simpler for him. If he was hungry, he would ask Zhao Hai for food. If Zhao Hai wanted him to fight, then he fought. If he wasn’t fighting, then he would eat. It was simple.
Once the three entered the deeper parts of Lotus Lake, they began to see other people less and less. Although Blackwater Snakes were very beneficial, few people dared to go to their territory. After all, Blackwater Snakes had a fierce reputation.
As the saying goes, the older the rivers and lakes, the smaller the courage. It was true. Practitioners who come to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield were all experts of the Nascent Soul and the Transcending Tribulation Stage. These people were also famed experts in their own realms. Naturally, it was impossible for these people to be inexperienced. Precisely because they had experienced the world that they were more aware of how reputation worked. At the same time, reputation also defined danger. Therefore, nobody dared to go into the inner parts of Lotus Lake in order to face the Blackwater Snakes.
And the place where they were in right now was the newcomer’s region. This meant that everyone here was a rookie in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Naturally, they wouldn’t be ignorant enough to face the Blackwater Snakes. After all, there were a lot of good things in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, they couldn’t just risk their lives against Blackwater Snakes.
Practitioners treasure their lives more than ordinary people. This was because they were able to have long lives. The longer their lives, the more they treasured it.
Zhao Hai continued to pay attention to their surroundings as they moved forward. Actually, he already knew from Laura and the others that the lake really did have Blackwater Snakes. Moreover, there were a lot of them. There were also several Black-armored turtles present. The biggest turtle had a shell over 30-meters wide.
A thick layer of rock was on top of the big turtle, which made it look like a moving mountain. However, Zhao Hai didn’t think about messing with the big turtle. One could see the turtle’s strength from its appearance. The big turtle should be beyond Transcending Tribulation and was at Immortal Stage. Zhao Hai couldn’t face such a powerhouse yet.
Besides this huge Black-armored Turtle, there were also several Blackwater Snakes that Zhao Hai couldn’t touch. There were Blackwater Snakes that were dozens of zhang(3.3m) long. Their bodies were as large as tree trunks. These Blackwater Snakes were at Severed Soul Stage and were approaching Immortal Stage. They had horns on their heads that seemed to show that they were transforming to become flood dragons.
These were beings that couldn’t be offended! Zhao Hai made a decision that he wouldn’t steer towards the direction of those creatures.
Zhao Hai carefully moved forward as he avoided the strong turtles and snakes. After travelling for an hour, Zhao Hai finally stopped at a spot.
Strangely, Zhao Hai and the others weren’t attacked despite travelling for more than an hour. What’s even more strange was that Zhao Hai was sure that they had flown over several Blackwater Snakes. However, those Blackwater Snakes turned a blind eye and didn’t attack them. Was this because he was lucky?
As he thought of this, a Blackwater Snake suddenly flew out of the water and threw itself towards Zhao Hai’s ship. Zhao Hai was stunned. He hadn’t noticed this snake. This was because the snake hid itself beneath a layer of mud.
It must be said that snakes couldn’t just drill through mud. However, it seems like Blackwater Snakes were different. Not only could it drill through mud, it could also stay for a long time inside it. This allowed the Blackwater Snake to sneak up to Zhao Hai.
Although he was surprised, Zhao Hai wasn’t slow in acting. He took out a silver flying sword and slashed the snake. Seeing Zhao Hai’s action, the Blackwater Snake didn’t take it seriously at all. It balled its body, allowing the sword to pass it, then it rushed towards Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and released 20 silver swords to form the Rainstorm Pear Sword Formation. Seeing so many flying swords, the Blackwater Snake hissed and danced through the air. The snake managed to evade a few swords, but some swords also hit its body. But much to Zhao Hai’s disappointment, the swords weren’t able to penetrate the snake’s body.
However, this didn’t mean that the snake didn’t feel any pain. It continued attacking Zhao Hai with enraged eyes. Zhao Hai coldly snorted as he released more swords and formed an even more powerful formation to block the Blackwater Snake.
Seeing the situation, the Blackwater Snake retreated, but it didn’t run away. He stubbornly glared at Zhao Hai. Just as Zhao Hai was wondering what the snake would do next, it hissed a couple of times.
It didn’t take long for Zhao Hai to understand that the snake was calling for reinforcements. Blackwater Snakes around them began to converge and encircle Zhao Hai.
The sizes of the approaching Blackwater Snakes greatly varied. The biggest was several feet long while the smallest were a few feet. Each one of them had green bodies and bright scales. One could see that they couldn’t be underestimated. Moreover, there were over 20 snakes approaching. Of the 20, five were at Transcending Tribulation Stage while the rest were at Nascent Soul.
But even with this, Zhao Hai didn’t dare underestimate them. There were much more Blackwater Snakes in Lotus Lake. If all of them came, then Zhao Hai and the others would certainly be in danger.
Zhao Hai controlled the ship to retreat slowly. Seeing Zhao Hai’s action, Li Zongdao stared, then he asked, “Little Hai, what’s wrong? Aren’t you going to deal with that Blackwater Snake?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “I was going to, and it wouldn’t be a problem. However, this fellow was calling over some help.” Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Li Zongdao’s expression turned serious, then he said, “How many?”
Zhao Hai replied, “More than 20, they’re trying to surround us.” As they were talking, he directed the ship to fly towards a gap between the Blackwater Snakes. The snake naturally knew what Zhao Hai was intending to do. So it immediately attacked Zhao Hai to delay him. However, it was blocked by Zhao Hai’s sword formation.
However, this caused their speed to fall, allowing the Blackwater Snakes to surround them. Seeing this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but snort coldly and said, “Don’t think that I’m afraid of a few snakes.” Then his body’s aura seemed to change. His eyes were half-opened as if he was an old monk in meditation. Then he slowly performed hand-gestures.
Zhao Hai was preparing to deal with these snakes using his Buddhist Techniques. Since they were above Lotus Lake and the water qi around them was abundant, the most appropriate technique to use would be the Imperial Water Technique.
