Chapter 1457 – Agreed!
Tang Jei was starting in front of the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Tang Jie was the captain, so everyone present respected him very much. Since Tang Jie didn’t make any noise, these people didn’t make a noise as well. They were just looking at Tang Jie.
Tang Jie was currently waiting for news. He clearly stated the situation and the information related to it. Tang Jie believed that the higher-ups would agree. This was because their target in the end was the Giant Spirit Realm. Moreover, it would be more convenient for their plans if the World of Cultivation joins under their banner.
At this time, Tang Wen arrived by Tang Jie’s side and said, “Senior Brother, aren’t you worried about the people we left back in the Octopus Islands? It’s been some time since we received information about them.”
Tang Jie was stunned for a moment, then he shook his head and said, “I’m afraid it’s already too late. But let me send a message.” Then he released a jade sword message. However, there was no response soon after.
Seeing this, Tang Jie sighed and said, “Just as I thought. Zhao Hai is truly cruel.”
Tang Wen looked at the jade sword message and couldn’t help but ask, “Senior Brother, what’s wrong? Did something happen to the Octopus Islands?”
Tang Jie sighed once more, “I found it strange when the first group said that Zhao Hai killed his way into the World of Cultivation’s stronghold. Now, I’m sure that Zhao Hai went to the Octopus Islands and killed the people there before coming back to attack us. This person is truly vicious and merciless. It’s a bad idea to become his opponent.”
When Tang Wen heard what Tang Jie said, his expression changed. Then he said, “Is Zhao Hai that strong? That’s impossible. Senior Brother, aren’t you overestimating his abilities?”
Tang Jie shook his head and said, “Absolutely not. The people on the Octopus Islands are definitely dead. Moreover, they were killed by Zhao Hai. Little Wen, don’t underestimate Zhao Hai. You should have seen the information about him. After he ascended from the lower realms, he immediately caused small and large troubles. Have you seen the losses we suffered against him? Back in the World of Cultivation, he was chased down but managed to survive. In the end, he went against a Transcending Tribulation Expert. After that, he went into seclusion for four and a half years. Although he’s still at the Nascent Soul stage, you can see that he isn’t any weaker than Severed Soul Experts. And he’s also a Dark Mage. You cannot underestimate a person like him.”
Tang Wen nodded and said, “Dark Mages have been known to be vicious and merciless. The make Undead from the corpses of their enemies. This Zhao Hai is no better.”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “Zhao Hai’s undead is also very special, and they have helped him fight before. Most Dark Mages learn more advanced techniques and abandon dark magic when they ascend. However, Zhao Hai’s undead are still very strong, providing him with huge help. But did you discover that Zhao Hai barely uses his Undead during his earlier battles? Do you know why this is?”
Tang Wen asked, “He can’t control the Undead for a long time?”
Tang Jie shook his head and said, “He’s preserving his strength, keeping cards hidden. When it’s necessary, he would pull out these cards. In other words, Zhao Hai hasn’t been using true strength. I’m afraid even the people from the World of Cultivation don’t know his true strength. This person’s plans go very deep. If we have that person on our side. Moreover, having the World of Cultivation with him would be a great advantage.”
Tang Wen replied, “What advantage?”
Tang Jie looked at Tang Wen and whispered, “Think about the times the Hundred Treasures Realm suffered against the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. Instead of bringing more trouble, we might as well accept the Xu Race and the World of Cultivation and make them our sword against the Giant Spirit Realm. Think about it, if the Giant Spirit Realm couldn’t keep these two realms, what troubles would they have?”
Tang Wen didn’t answer for some time, then he understood Tang Jie’s thoughts. He nodded and said, “Senior Brother is right. If the Giant Spirit Realm couldn’t keep the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race, their reputation would take a huge hit. And with the betrayal of the World of Cultivation, the Giant Spirit Realm would have a difficult time.”
Tang Wen’s eyes shone, “It’s truly a good idea to receive the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. But Senior Brother, didn’t you report about our past troubles with them?”
Tang Jie looked at Tang Wen and said, “Little Wen, some enmity needed to be remembered, and some enmity needed to be forgotten. Zhao Hai and the others would be a great use for us. Our true enemy is the Giant Spirit Realm. When Zhao Hai and the others were fighting with us, they were still subordinated to the Giant Spirit Realm. But once they come under us, they would be on our side. Our Hundred Treasures Realm doesn’t settle accounts after the autumn. Do you understand what I mean?”
Tang Wen understood what Tang Jie was saying. The Giant Spirit realm would only cause troubles for themselves if they don’t save the Giant Spirit Realm. If the Hundred Treasures Realm settled accounts after using the World of Cultivation, then those who follow them would begin to have doubts. It would be harmful for the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Tang Wen nodded and no longer spoke. Now he could only hope that they would accept the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. Otherwise, it would be a huge loss.
The two didn’t use voice transmission during their talk. Therefore, other people also heard them. When they heard the two, they couldn’t help but contemplate.
Strictly speaking, these people were also Cultivators. Back in the Hundred Treasures Realm, they had groups of their own. It was only when they’re here in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield that they combined their strengths and became an army. Each of them would serve in the battlefield for ten years before they could go back to the Hundred Treasures Realm. If you talk about the friendship they had with each other, then it’s not that much in reality. They were all selfish and thought of their own survival. They didn’t care about the greater good. Even if their comrades die, or even their brothers and nephews, they wouldn’t feel anything.
The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm understood that they were only able to walk sideways in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield because they were from the Hundred Treasures Realm. If the reputation of the Hundred Treasures Realm gets damaged, then they would be suppressed on all sides. Their days wouldn’t be better. Therefore, when these people heard Tang Jie, they couldn’t help but ponder over it. In their opinion, accepting the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race would be really good for the Hundred Treasures Realm. Thinking that the Giant Spirit Realm would be losing two realms caused their hatred towards the World of Cultivation to slowly disappear.
Tang Jei deliberately let everyone hear this because of his appreciation for Zhao Hai’s skills. In the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, vicious and merciless wasn’t a derogatory term. Cultivators needed to have this personality in order to progress.
Zhao Hai doesn’t hesitate in making ruthless moves. Such a person was absolutely a genius. If Zhao Hai can stall the attack of the Giant Spirit Realm, then it would be a great benefit for the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Tang Jie glanced at the people behind him and a smile appeared on his face. At this moment, a jade sword message flew in front of Tang Jie. He took the jade sword message and used his spiritual force to read the message inside. After he read the contents, he took a sigh of relief.
Seeing Tang Jie’s reaction, Tang Wen aske,d “Senior Brother, what did the higher-ups say?”
Tang Jie handed the jade sword message to Tang Wen as he smiled and said, “Go read it yourself.” Tang Wen didn’t hesitate and took the jade sword and read it. Reading the contents inside, a smile couldn’t help but bloom on his face as he said, “Fantastic. The higher-ups agreed!”
Just as Tang Wen finished talking, someone’s voice was heard, “Then the medium-grade realm World of Cultivation and the Xu Race thanks the Hundred Treasures Realm for taking us in.” Tang Jie and Tang Wen followed the voice and saw Zhao Hai, Kong Miao, Xu Wuzun, and other Severed Soul experts standing not far from them.
Tang Jie quickly recovered and welcomed Zhao Hai and the others with a smile. At this time, the person standing in front of the group was Kong Miao. Tang Jie cupped his fist towards Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster is too polite. It should be us who need to thank you for joining our side.”
Kong Miao smiled faintly and said, “Our World of Cultivation and the Xu Race are no more than ghosts that nobody wants. We are deeply grateful to the Hundred Treasures Realm for taking us in. Friends from the Hundred Treasures Realm, please accept our invitation to come in.”
After exchanging greetings, Tang Jie smiled and said, “Then I’ll accept.” The two flew shoulder to shoulder towards the command tunnel. Tang Wen followed Tang Jie while Xu Wuzun was behind Kong Miao. Xu Ning and the other Severed Soul Experts followed further behind. The same was true for the experts from the Hundred Treasures Realm. As for Zhao Hai, he didn’t move. He was at the last of the group.
Along the way, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm could see people from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race arranging formations. Just on their path alone, they could already see a lot of formations. If the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t agree, then they would have to deal with all of these.
It didn’t take long before the group arrived at the command tunnel. Tang Jie made Tang Wen and the others follow Xu Ning’s group in order to get settled down. As for Tang Jie, he followed Kong Miao to discuss matters.
Xu Ning and the other Severed Soul Experts helped settle the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Only Kong Miao, Xu Wuzun, and Zhao Hai accompanied Tang Jie.
Once the group arrived inside the room, Zhao Hai immediately took out a bottle of liquor as well as some jade cups. After handing everyone a glass of liquor, he positioned himself behind Kong Miao, acting like an attendant.
Despite this, Tang Jie didn’t dare underestimate Zhao Hai. He also paid special attention to Zhao Hai’s actions. After receiving his cup, Tang Jie smiled and said, “It’s an honor to be served personally by Mister Zhao Hai.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Captain Tang Jie is too polite. This Zhao Hai is no more than a Nascent Soul Expert. It’s my honor to be able to serve you.”
Hearing this, Tang Jie laughed and said, “It’s Mister who is too polite. If every Nascent Soul Expert is like Mister Zhao Hai, then I’m afraid all Severed Soul Experts would be losing their jobs.” Kong Miao and Xu Wuzun also laughed when they heard this.
