Chapter 1400 – They Will Agree
After asking everyone to drink a few cups, Zhao Hai looked at Liu Sheng and asked, “Brother Liu, what do you plan to do next? Will you head back or would you go out again.”
Liu Sheng glanced at the others who were drinking, then he sighed and said, “I want to go back, but we can’t. I don’t know what’s happening, but we keep getting robbed whenever we go out. We haven’t even reached our quota this month. It would be troublesome if we don’t pay it. We need to head out in order to have something to hand in for this month.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he said, “Brother Liu, why don’t you move with me this time? I’m going to teach the Xu Race a lesson to make them behave. It’s not too late for you to head back. You can also rob the Xu Race people. Maybe you can get enough resources to fulfill this month’s tax.”
When he heard Zhao Hai, Liu Sheng couldn’t help but raise his brows as he asked, “You’re really going to deal with those Xu Race people? They aren’t easy to deal with. Not only are they powerful, they seem to have the ability to evade tracking.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Rest assured, they wouldn’t be able to run away from me. You should know that the Xu Race don’t normally organize themselves like this. As soon as they separate, we can deal with them. When the time comes, we might be able to wipe them out. We could also get a lot of loot in the process. What do you think?”
Liu Sheng thought about it and said, “I cannot make a decision on behalf of the group. After all, we’re in a temporary alliance. We have to discuss this with the others.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright, everyone can stay on the ship. I’ll give this place to you to use.” Liu Sheng nodded, then they no longer talked about this topic and moved on.
After everyone had finished drinking, Zhao Hai took Li Zongdao and Mo Sheng out of the cabin. It must be said that even though Mo Sheng was simple-minded, he listened well. Zhao Hai told him to not drink too much, so he didn’t drink too much. After drinking, Mo Sheng was still quite sober. Zhao Hai led the two towards the ship’s bow.
It was already dark outside. It must be said that the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was truly strange. The time here was also divided into days and nights. However, this place wasn’t a planet. This made Zhao Hai feel strange.
As he stood on the bow, Zhao Hai felt the cold breeze before letting out a long sigh. He stopped the Hell King’s ship and then turned to Li Zongdao and said, “Brother Li, we’ll deal with the Xu Race people tomorrow. We can’t just allow them to be this rampant. Otherwise, the World of Cultivation would lose a lot of face. We need to teach them a lesson.”
Li Zongdao nodded and said, “Liu Sheng and the others should be discussing the matter of our cooperation. Do you think they would agree?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I think they will agree. They haven’t been doing well recently, and they don’t have enough resources for this month’s tax. Now that we are providing them an opportunity to get resources, they would certainly agree.”
Li Zongdao knit his brows and said, “I’m afraid it’s not as easy as that. This time, we’re dealing with the Xu race. It’s hard to go against the Xu Race.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Don’t worry, they will agree. Although they have been in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield for some time, they still have some arrogance in their heart. Don’t forget, they suffered a lot this time. If it weren’t for us, then they might have been annihilated. Do you think they could swallow this grudge? They will definitely find a way to take revenge. And joining us is a good chance for them to retaliate.”
When Li Zongdao heard what Zhao Hai said, he couldn’t help but nod. He could somewhat understand the mentality of these Transcending Tribulation Experts. Even though they had entered the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield as newcomers, they still couldn’t get rid of their arrogance in a short amount of time.
They had been ambushed and forced to suffer a loss. It would be strange if they could just let this grudge go. But if they want to take revenge, then they would need to locate their enemy. The Xu Race’s location was uncertain, so it would be very difficult to retaliate against them. The one who can find these Xu Race people was Zhao Hai. Therefore, they would certainly agree knowing that it was Zhao Hai who proposed the idea.
Zhao Hai looked at Li Zongdao and said, “Brother Li, let’s go take a rest. We’ll know their answer by tomorrow. If they agree, then that would be good. But if they don’t, then we no longer need to care about them. By then, it would be very difficult for them to advance in their entire lives.”
Li Zongdao nodded and said, “That’s right. If they agree to work together, then that means that their hearts are in the right place. If they don’t, then it means that they no longer have any ambition to progress. They had lost their qualifications to become a Cultivator.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he led Li Zogndao and Mo Sheng to their cabin. Upon entering his room, Mo Sheng immediately fell asleep. Zhao Hai naturally wouldn’t be polite and immediately rested on the floor. On the other hand, Li Zongdao couldn’t believe that Mo Sheng and Zhao Hai would sleep.
Mo Sheng was fine, since he had drunk some liquor. But why would Zhao Hai waste time by sleeping?
However, looking at the two, he knew that they haven’t done this for a day or two. Li Zongdao couldn’t help but be dumbfounded. He didn’t know what to say. Zhao Hai was able to reach his current stage despite this habit. It was truly eye-opening for Li Zongdao.
Li Zongdao shook his head and sighed. Then he calmed himself down before sitting cross-legged and began adjusting his breath. Although he wanted to adjust his breath, Li Zongdao was affected by Mo Sheng’s snoring. Before long, he too fell asleep.
The next morning, Li Zongdao found that he had slept on the ground. This caused him to pat his head and bitterly smile.
However, he suddenly spotted an anomaly. The spiritual qi in his body actually increased by a lot. Although it couldn’t compare to the increase brought by meditation, it was still quite good. Moreover, his body was energized like never before. This caused Li Zongdao to be taken aback for a moment.
Suddenly, he remembered reading about alternating work and rest. However, Cultivators weren’t used to sleeping, so nobody slept. Everyone used all of their energy cultivating. To some degrees, this practice was incorrect.
As Li Zongdao was thinking about this, he heard Zhao Hai’s voice, “Brother Li, you’re up. Wash up and let’s eat before seeing Liu Sheng and the others.”
Seeing that Zhao Hai had gotten up, Li Zongdao nodded and then caused a water ball to appear. Then he washed his face with the water ball before throwing it outside.
Although Li Zongdao wasn’t a practitioner of the water element, this simple spell was nothing to him. Seeing that Li Zongdao had finished washing up, Zhao Hai took out several dishes as well as a chicken for Mo Sheng to eat. Then the three had their breakfast.
After eating, the three headed out to the place where Liu Sheng and the others were in. Like any other Cultivator, Liu Sheng and the others didn’t sleep and instead meditated until dawn. They had already reached an agreement yesterday. So upon seeing Zhao Hai, all of them stood up.
Looking at everyone, Zhao Hai cupped his fist and said, “Did everyone make their decision? If everyone agrees, we can act right now. If you don’t, then I can only ask you to disembark since I’ll be heading to cause trouble for the Xu Race.”
Liu Sheng laughed and said, “Brother Zhao, we’ve already discussed it. The Xu Race are despicable people. Since they dared have any ideas towards us, then we will not just let them off. We’ll go with you to deal with them.”
Hearing this, Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Alright, if everyone agrees, then you can leave looking for the Xu Race to me. When the time comes, you just have to head out and clean them up.” When everyone heard Zhao Hai, they all laughed. Although they don’t know what method Zhao Hai would use to find the Xu Race, they believed that Zhao Hai could really find them.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone and said, “Alright, we’re departing. The Xu Race has been rampant these days, it’s time to deal with them.” Then he controlled the Hell King’s ship and went towards a direction.
Although everyone didn’t know where Zhao Hai was going, they didn’t bother asking. Everyone has their own secrets that they wouldn’t tell others.
Cultivators also learned to not inquire about other people’s secrets. Otherwise, they would be suspected. When the time comes, a friend might turn into an enemy.
The direction that Zhao Hai was flying towards was exactly where a group of Xu Race people were. The Xu Race rarely acted together. Even if they act together, they would immediately separate once the task was done.
Although the Xu Race was under one government, they were also competitive with one another. To obtain a higher position, then would do their best to crawl upward. If other people get in their way? Then they would eradicate that obstacle.
