Chapter 1467 – Thousand Flower Rain
In fact, the situation wasn’t difficult to understand at all. The Giant Spirit Treasure Ship at full speed was like a truck that was stocked full. It’s difficult to stop the truck from the front but it’s easy to divert its direction from the side.
The people from the Xu Race were carrying the fake spirit snake needles. Without much support, these needles couldn’t damage the treasure ship. However, every five blows to the ship was done by Severed Soul Expert, which caused its impact to be heavier than usual. So before Ba LI knew it, the treasure ship was shifted off course.
Besides the Xu Race using the fake spirit snake needles, there’s also Zhao Hai’s Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. Each of their crashes caused the ship to change its direction by a bit.
These changes didn’t happen at once. Only through multiple collisions did the ship’s direction change. This caused the people in the control room to be late in discovering the deviation.
In fact, when the first strike arrived, the control room no longer had any way to control the direction of the ship. So even if they want to change its direction, they would no longer be able to do so.
Seeing the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship brush past the Octopus Islands, Tang Jie couldn’t help but laugh. He turned his head and patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder as he said, “Little Hai, good job. That was a good idea. Hahaha, Ba Li’s expression was wonderful!”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “After this, I think Ba Li would understand his faults. We should request reinforcements. The true battle is about to come.”
Tang Jie’s expression calmed, then he nodded and said, “Right, the real battle is coming. However, it would take a few days before their side sends more people. We have enough time. Right Little Hai, I have good news. The realm will send us 5,000 people as reinforcements. Moreover, they will bring enough materials with them in order to make more fake spirit snake needles.”
Zhao Hai was stunned, then he smiled bitterly and said, “Brother Tang, you don’t want me to give each of you a fake spirit snake needle, right? To be honest, there’s no need to make so many imitations. Also, I can’t refine all the time. And the imitations aren’t as flexible and strong as the real one. Even if it’s used by Severed Soul Experts, it can only be as strong as the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. It’s big, but Transcending Tribulation Experts can’t use it to break guardian formations. And it also couldn’t be used several times. It’s not worth it making a lot of them.”
Tang Jie sighed and said, “I’m aware of that, but Little Hai, you should know something about the Giant Spirit Realm. In the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, the Giant Spirit Realm has one of the best large artifacts. In the past, the Hundred Treasures Realm suffered against them because of these artifacts. Large artifacts are much better compared to ordinary artifacts. If we want to deal with the Giant Spirit Realm, then your fake spirit snake needles will be important. We’ll have to trouble you in making them.”
Hearing Tang Jie, Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright, rest assured, I’ll do whatever I can.”
Tang Jie nodded, then he said, “There’s also refining masters coming alongside the reinforcements. When the time comes, I’ll have to shamelessly ask you to tell them the method of making the fake spirit snake needles.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “The method isn’t that extraordinary. Don’t worry, once they’re here, I’ll give them the quantities of materials as well as the formations needed to make the spirit snake needles.”
Tang Jie nodded, then he turned his head towards the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship and said, “If we can defeat the Giant Spirit Realm this time, then the Hundred Treasures Realm would gain a huge advantage. And Little Hai will be the hero of the Hundred Treasures Realm. The realm wouldn’t treat you unfairly.”
The reason why Tang Jie told Zhao Hai about this was because he already told Zhao Hai that he would bring him to the Hundred Treasures Realm when all of this was over. Zhao Hai would officially join the Hundred Treasures Realm.
When he heard what Tang Jie said, Zhao Hai only smiled faintly and didn’t say anything. To be honest, he didn’t have any interest in joining the Hundred Treasures Realm. He already knew the Hundred Treasures Realm’s cultivation methods as well as the Giant Spirit Realm’s. What he needed was the methods of the other realms. So what he wanted to do was to look at the other realms to find something new.
What Zhao Hai cared the most was the origin of the Six Realms Battlefield and the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. He wanted to know the people behind these subspaces.
Tang Jie looked at Zhao Hai and couldn’t help but smile. By this point, his appreciation towards Zhao Hai knows no honor nor disgrace. Zhao Hai was a person who did great things.
Tang Jie could now understand Kong Miao. In the past, he found it strange that Kong Miao would confide with Zhao Hai whenever he makes a decision. But after seeing Zhao Hai’s abilities, Tang Jie understood why Kong Miao did so. In fact, he was now similar to Kong Miao. No matter what happens, he would discuss it with Zhao Hai.
Under everyone’s gaze, the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship took a large turn and went into the distance once more. It’s speed had also slowed down. It seems like Ba Li has discovered their weakness.
The weakness of Ba Li’s group was just a scant few. If they had enough manpower, then they would be able to stop the attacks of the Xu Race and also restrain Tang Jie’s group. They would no longer think about many things. But because they lacked people, they could only be suppressed time and time again. This irritated Ba Li.
However, although he was annoyed, Ba Li knew that they couldn’t go on like this. So after the ship slowed down, he turned to his side and said, “Let’s leave the Octopus Island’s area and immediately send a message back to the realm. Let them send reinforcements as soon as possible.”
Someone beside him took the order and left the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship. In a short while, they left the Octopus Island’s region and disappeared.”
Seeing the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship heading back, the people on the Octopus Islands cheered. They knew that this wasn’t the end to the Giant Spirit Realm, but this also meant that they won the first confrontation.
It must be known that this win wasn’t easy to obtain. They had to save part of their strength so that the Giant Treasure Ship wouldn’t retreat immediately. They had to make Ba Li and the others think that the Octopus Islands were vulnerable. From what happened, it’s clear that they were doing very well.
Moreover, the people that the Giant Spirit Realm sent this time weren’t weak. Not only did they send the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship, there’s also 5000 people from the Giant Spirit Realm. Five thousand wasn’t a small number.
Actually, the people most excited were the people from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. For a long time, people from high-grade realms had always been beyond their reach. When they looked at them, they always felt that those people were kings. As long as the Giant Spirit Realm sends 3-4 thousand people, then they would be able to drive out lower-grade realms from the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
But now? They were actually able to defeat the people from the Giant Spirit Realm. Although this was greatly due to Tang Jie, no matter what, didn’t they contribute? Moreover, they also exerted a lot of effort, so this was enough to make them feel proud.
Tang Jie glanced at the people cheering around him and faintly smiled. Then he turned his head to Zhao Hai and said, “Alright, let’s head back. Little Wen, arrange people to stand guard against the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm.” Tang Wen nodded, then he went over to Kong Miao and Xu Wuzun in order to arrange the sentries.
Zhao Hai returned to the Octopus Islands with Tang Jie and the others. Tang Jie had everyone take a rest while he took Kong Miao, Xu Wuzun, Tang Jie, and Zhao Hai back to his residence.
After settling themselves inside the residence, Tang Jie smiled and said, “I really didn’t expect Ba Li to head back too soon. I reckon he’s burning with anger right now and preparing troops in order to begin his second attack.”
The people present chuckled, they were in a very good mood after repelling a powerful enemy. Although they haven’t killed anybody, they were still glad with the result. Tang Jie looked at everyone and said, “The reinforcements from the realm should arrive soon. The first batch will arrive in two hours. When the time comes, I’ll have to ask Mister Xu Wuzun to help me arrange their accommodation.”
Xu Wuzun immediately nodded and said, “Captain Tang can rest assured, I’ll take care of it. Right, who will be commanding the reinforcements?”
Kong Miao also paid attention when he heard this. To be honest, they were a bit worried. Tang Jie has been polite towards them because the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race were stronger when combined. But as soon as the Hundred Treasures Realm’s reinforcements arrive, the strength of the Hundred Treasures Realm here would increase. When that time comes, it would be very hard to tell if the Hundred Treasures Realm would maintain their attitude.
The one most worried about this was Xu Wuzun. The World of Cultivation didn’t have to worry a lot since Zhao Hai would be joining the Hundred Treasures Realm. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm look at the monk’s face and see the Buddha, so they wouldn’t treat the World of Cultivation unfairly. Moreover, the World of Cultivation betrayed the Giant Spirit Realm, so they were very useful for the Hundred Treasures Realm.
But the Xu Race was different. In the past, the Xu Race didn’t have the qualifications to become subordinated to the Hundred Treasures Realm. And with the Xu Race’s bad reputation, if the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t treat them well, then they couldn’t do anything.
If the Hundred Treasures Realm always listened to Tang Jie’s words, then Xu Wuzun wouldn’t be too worried. After all, Tang Jie was very polite to them. And being comrades in battle, Tang Jie shouldn’t burn the bridge after crossing the river.
But if another person from the Hundred Treasures Realm assumes command, then things would be hard to predict. Who knows how the reinforcements would see them? After all, the Xu Race had always been unwelcomed in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Tang Jie was also a smart person, so he immediately understood Xu Wuzun’s concerns. He smiled and said, “The commander of the group is my Senior Brother Mu Yu. He is my Senior Brother from the same master. Our relationship with each other is very good and he takes very good care of me. He’s also a powerhouse in the Hundred Treasures Realm. There’s almost no one of his generation that is as famous as him. Since he’s leading the reinforcements, we have nothing to worry about.”
Hearing Mu Yu’s name, Xu Wuzun couldn’t help but stare. Then his face lit up as he said, “Do you mean Mu Yu, the Thousand Flower Rain?”
Tang Jie smiled faintly and said, “Senior Brother is the most powerful expert of the young generation. His Thousand Flower Rain is very well-known in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.”
Hearing this, Zhao Hai and Kong Miao knew who Mu Yu was. It must be known that Mu Yu was the most powerful expert among the Hundred Treasures Realm’s younger generation. However, he handles things very low-key. Therefore, not everyone in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield knew about him. Nevertheless, he was written on the records of the World of Cultivation. The reason why Mu Yu was recorded was his artifact.
Mu Yu’s artifact was known as the Thousand Flower Rain, the same name was given to his technique. It was said that this artifact was researched and made by Mu Yu himself. When using it, one would feel as though they were plunged into a sea of flowers. Mist came along with the flowers as well as the drizzle of rain. It had a beautiful and charming look to it.
However, almost everyone who saw this scenery has died. Nobody knows how he uses his artifact nor did anybody see what it looked like. Because of this, Mu Yu was placed in the ‘Do not offend lists’ of many realms.
Thousand Flower Rain was not Mu Yu’s only nickname, he was also called the Thousand Flower Emperor. And in the jade slip of the World of Cultivation, Mu Yu’s nickname was exactly that. For a while, Zhao Hai and Kong Miao didn’t know who Mu Yu was. But upon hearing his nickname, they immediately remembered.
Tang Jie wasn’t lying, Mu Yu’s Thousand Flower Rain was indeed very famous in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. He was especially famous among high-grade realms. But because of his covert activities, the name Mu Yu wasn’t very known. Moreover, Mu Yu only goes against high-grade realms and never lower-grade realms.
Hearing that it was Mu Yu who would lead the reinforcements, Zhao Hai and Kong Miao were also happy. Mu Yu had a great reputation. With him and his 5000 men, the protection of the Octopus Islands would no longer be a problem.
Tang Jie looked at everyone and said, “Mister Xu Wuzun, please arrange the residences of the reinforcing army. Mister Kong Miao, please rest first, I still have something to say to Little Hai and Little Wen.”
