Chapter 1455 – Price For Playing Tricks
Just as the atmosphere was turning heated, a voice was heard, “Oh, what’s wrong? Why is everyone drawing their weapons? Did something happen?” A single person was seen flying into the tunnel. Seeing this person, Kong Miao relaxed, it was Zhao Hai.
Although Zhao Hai had no rank in the World of Cultivation, everyone knew who he was. Kong Miao found himself relying on Zhao Hai more and more.
Back when they drew their weapons against Ba Muer and the others, Kong Miao lacked confidence in winning. He felt nervous deep inside. But when he saw Zhao Hai, his heart couldn’t help but calm down.
Ba Muer also noticed Zhao Hai, but he didn’t say anything. In his mind, Zhao Hai wasn’t someone to be afraid of. He just coldly snorted and said, “Zhao Hai, you have no right to speak here. Go away!”
Zhao Hai looked at Ba Muer and then smiled faintly as he said, “It seems like Captain Ba still hasn’t figured out the situation. Do you know where this is? This is the stronghold of the World of Cultivation, and I am from the World of Cultivation. How about you, what gave you the right to shout here? Do you really think that we don’t know what you’re planning to do? Don’t you find it weird that the transmission formations have suddenly been sealed? It seems like Grandmaster Kong Miao has been too polite to you that you failed to realize what situation you’re in.”
Hearing Zhao Hai’s words, Ba Muer’s face changed color. Zhao Hai scolding him already turned his expression dark. But Zhao Hai’s words after that caused his face to turn pale white. He discovered that he had made a mistake. All of the things that Kong Miao has said might have been a lie.
Zhao Hai looked at Ba Muer, he coldly snorted and said, “When you left this room earlier, you received a jade sword message. After that, you immediately headed towards the transmission formation without even saying a word. What, you want to return to the Giant Spirit Realm? I can tell you that it’s too late. After seeing your move, I immediately sealed the transmission formation. Do you want to know where I went just now? Let me tell you. I just went to meet the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. The World of Cultivation and the Xu Race would rather side with the Hundred Treasures Realm to deal with the Giant Spirit Realm. As long as they’re willing to accept, you would be sent over to them as a tribute. And yet you still had the guts to shout and yell here. If the Giant Spirit Realm is filled with idiots like you, then you’re not far from being defeated!”
Ba Muer’s face was pale as he looked at Zhao Hai. Then he coldly snorted and said, “Ungrateful! You people from the World of Cultivation are all ungrateful people. The Giant Spirit Realm always treated you well. Now you want to detain us and hand us over to the Hundred Treasures Realm? Are you still humans?”
Zhao Hai looked at Ba Muer and then suddenly laughed. After some time, Zhao Hai stopped laughing as he said, “Ba Muer, don’t put gold on your faces. The Giant Spirit Realm treats the World of Cultivation well? The World of Cultivation has been using vast amounts of resources as tribute every year in order to get your protection. But now, the Hundred Treasures Realm has come to deal with us, why would they attack us? We’re just a medium-grade realm and everyone who encounters the Hundred Treasures Realm always takes the long way around. It’s impossible for us to offend them. They attacked us because we’re tied with the Giant Spirit Realm. We had a conflict with them and we killed more than a thousand people. All of this is because of the Giant Spirit Realm. We were willing to follow you and help deal with the Hundred Treasures Realm. But now what happened? You only came to check the situation. And when confirmed that the report was real, you still refused to send reinforcements. In the end, you still decided to abandon us.”
“Together with the Xu Race we would have the strength of an upper medium-grade realm. Even if we’re only an upper medium-grade realm, you should see the amount of tribute we can give each year. We became enemies with the Hundred Treasures Realm for your sake. You should have sent troops to help us. Instead, you abandoned us without even a fight. Is this what the people from the Giant Spirit Realm do? From the moment you abandoned the World of Cultivation, the Giant Spirit Realm is finished. You have already lost the heart of a high-grade realm. Without this, you can no longer be a high-grade realm. You can’t even protect your own subordinates. What qualifications do you have to be a high-grade realm?”
“You better behave yourselves, and I’ll let you live for a while. If you really irritate me, I’ll just kill you and hand your heads over to the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
As he listened to Zhao Hai, veins bulged on Ba Muer’s pale face. At this moment, someone from the Giant Spirit Realm roared as he took his giant axe and flung it towards Zhao Hai.
The action was very sudden. Nobody thought that someone from the Giant Spirit Realm would suddenly launch an attack. Moreover, it was swift, Zhao Hai wouldn’t be able to avoid it.
Kong Miao’s expression paled. Just as he was about to panic, he saw Zhao Hai stretch his hand and lightly snapped his fingers. Along with the snap, a cloud of blood burst out from the throat of the person from the Giant Spirit Realm. A round hole appeared on the person’s neck. His blood gushing out like a fountain. Then the eye of the person from the Giant Spirit Realm lost its lustre. The giant axe that attacked Zhao Hai also fell to the ground.
Zhao Hai looked at the people from the Giant Spirit Realm, then he said in a soft voice, “I don’t know whether you will live or die. Thousands of people from the Hundred Treasures Realm came to attack us and were trapped in this mine. With less than 50 of you, what storms can you stir up? Ba Muer, you better behave. I don’t mind killing you all right now.”
Zhao Hai’s move not only shook Ba Muer, but Kong Miao and the others as well. All of them looked at Zhao Hai in a daze, not knowing how Zhao Hai did it.
Zhao Hai flew towards Kong Miao’s side and said, “Grandmaster, the Hundred Treasures Realm’s Tang Jie said that this isn’t something he could take responsibility for. So he had to report back to his higher-ups. But from what I can see, it’s highly possible that they would agree.”
Kong Miao recovered. He immediately nodded and said, “Alright, that’s good. So what do we do to them?”
Zhao Hai glanced towards Ba Muer and then sneered as he said, “A group of arrogant idiots. Just watch them first. If they dared make any trouble, just kill them.”
Kong Miao nodded, then he turned his head and gave an order. After that, people from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race suppressed Ba Muer’s group and then took their weapons.
When Ba Muer and his group left, Kong Miao looked at Zhao Hai and asked, “Little Hai, how did you do that just now? Why didn’t I see you make an attack?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly, then he whispered to Kong Miao, “When I talked to them before, I secretly turned Liquid Silver into very small needles. I used words to attract their attention and quietly inserted the needles into their necks. They didn’t notice it because they move too much. If I want to attack, I just use the needles. I just made them think that I can kill them with a snap of my fingers.”
When he heard this, Kong Miao couldn’t help but get stunned for a moment. Then he said, “That works?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Of course. I got this method when studying the artifacts of the Hundred Treasures Realm. Grandmaster, the Ten Thousand Transformation Staff should be able to do this.”
Kong Miao’s eyes lit up. But he didn’t say anything. Just now, the two of them were close to each other and used sound transmission so nobody could hear them.
At this time, Xu Wuzun walked towards them as he laughed and said, “Little Hai, good. That was too liberating. I’ve been getting annoyed by those fellows.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “This time, even if the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm doesn’t accept us, those people from the Giant Spirit Realm wouldn’t be able to survive. We’ll kill them and blame it on the Hundred Treasures Realm, making the two fight over it. With this, they wouldn’t have time to find our coordinates. Ba Muer and the others would die sooner or later, so we might as well let them be arrogant.”
Hearing what Zhao Hai said, Xu Wuzun and Kong Miao’s hearts turned cold. To be honest, they didn’t want to be in conflict with Ba Muer. They still want to keep an escape route for themselves. If the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm don’t accept them, they would want to ask the Giant Spirit Realm one more time.
Actually, they understood that the Giant Spirit Realm wouldn’t help them. Even if they beg the Giant Spirit Realm, nothing will happen. After all, the Giant Spirit Realm was a high-grader realm. People aren’t too willing to kill them. They weren’t like Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai doesn’t care whether the Giant Spirit Realm was a high-grade realm or not. He only did things that would be beneficial to himself. The moment Zhao Hai discovered that the Giant Spirit Realm had given up on them, Ba Muer’s fate was sealed.
The two people looked at each other in dismay, they weren’t able to speak for some time. Then at this moment, Zhao Hai’s expression changed as he said, “Reckless things. Still unwilling to give up.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Kong Miao’s expression changed as he said, “What happened? Is Ba Muer causing a problem?”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Ba Muer secretly sent out a jade sword message. It seems like he wants to report the situation to the Giant Spirit Realm. But there’s no need to worry, my Undead intercepted it. I’ll return quickly.” Then after he said that he vanished in place.
When Zhao Hai left, Kong Miao sighed. Then he looked at Xu Wuzun and said, “I now know what a top expert is like. Before ascending, I’m certain that Little Hai must have been a top expert. Hard-hearted, merciless, but he can afford to do so. Once he makes a move, he would be unforgiving.”
Xu Wuzun smiled bitterly. To be honest, him and Kong Miao couldn’t be considered as top experts. The two put their cultivation as the priority. Because of this, there were a lot of things that they didn’t know about. Because of this, when the two of them did something, there would be times when they would miss a thing or two. They weren’t as decisive as Zhao Hai.
At this moment, Ba Muer’s face was pale as he looked at the Xu Race and the people from the World of Cultivation. He didn’t think that he would be reduced to this situation one day.
Ba Muer swallowed his breath as he quietly took a jade sword message and let it go. Although he hid his action from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race, he didn’t conceal it from the others from the Giant Spirit Realm. The others from the Giant Spirit Realm cooperated as they attracted the attention of the people from the Xu Race and the World of Cultivation. This allowed Ba Muer to smoothly send his jade sword message away.
Actually, this was also because of the relaxed relationship of the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. Zhao Hai being able to snap his fingers to kill an enemy caused them to let go of any worries. This caused the people of World of Cultivation and the Xu Race to let down their guard, allowing Ba Muer to send his jade sword message undiscovered.
Seeing his jade sword message fly away, Ba Muer couldn’t help but sneer. He looked at the people from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race and a cold glint sparkled in his eyes. He was currently thinking about what methods to use when he gets his revenge.
Then at this moment, a person appeared in front of Ba Muer and the others. When he saw this person, Ba Muer’s expression couldn’t help but turn ugly. It was Zhao Hai. Ba Muer didn’t understand what Zhao Hai wanted this time. He simply didn’t think that his jade sword message would be blocked by Zhao Hai. Jade sword messages are very fast. Moreover, it was very small. Once they were released, it was extremely hard to block them. Therefore, Ba Muer didn’t think towards that direction.
Ba Muer and the others from the Giant Spirit Realm couldn’t help but feel pressure when Zhao Hai arrived. They immediately stopped and looked at him in confusion.
With a cold expression, Zhao Hai looked at Ba Muer and said, “Ba Muer, I already warned you to not play any tricks with me. Now that you neglected my warning, you’ll have to pay the price.”
Ba Muer looked at Zhao Hai, with an ashen expression he said, “Zhao Hai, don’t go too far. We didn’t resist. What do you mean playing tricks? If you want to kill us, then you might as well do it now.”
Zhao Hai looked at Ba Muer, then he sneered and said, “No tricks? Then what is this? Isn’t this jade sword message yours? I’m not joking when I said that you’ll pay the price. You sent a jade sword message, so I’ll kill five of your people. That wouldn’t be excessive wouldn’t it?”
Seeing Zhao Hai take out a jade sword message, Ba Muer’s expression changed. And hearing Zhao Hai’s words, his expression turned even darker. Without waiting for Ba Muer to talk, Zhao Hai waved his hand and the throats of five people from the Giant Spirit Realm were punctured. Before long, they all fell down.
Zhao Hai looked at Ba Muer and said, “If you want to live for a while more, then behave. If you dared play any more tricks, then I’ll kill ten more next time.”
Then Zhao Hai looked at the people from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race and said, “Take them away!” They quickly complied. Their expressions weren’t good to look at.
