Chapter 1478 – Everyone’s Reaction
Mu Yu looked at the Giant Spirit Realm Undead and then suddenly laughed. This caused Tang Jie and the others to be surprised. They also heard the Undead saying that Zhao Hai was alright and that there was no need to worry. So why did Mu Yu suddenly laugh?
Tang Jie looked at Mu Yu and said, “Big Brother Mu, why are you laughing?”
Mu Yu turned his head to Tang Jie as he laughed and said, “I just find it amusing for someone from the Giant Spirit Realm to salute to me. Although it’s an Undead, they still died in our hands.”
Upon hearing Mu Yu, Tang Jie stared for a moment before he laughed as well. Whether it be Zhao Hai or Kong Miao and the others, they had underestimated the hatred between the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm.
The Giant Spirit Realm and the Hundred Treasures Realm had fought for too long that their hatred has been engrained deep into their bones. It wouldn’t just disappear in a matter of months or years.
In the past, because both sides knew that they didn’t have the means to deal with the other, they could only bear with this feeling. Due to this enmity, none of them wanted to die before the other.
Mu Yu and the others’ present situation was the same. Although their souls haven’t been burned by hatred, the fire within it has no doubt been lit. So when they saw someone from the Giant Spirit Realm being respectful towards them, they couldn’t help but feel extraordinarily happy.
After laughing for some time, Mu Yu looked at the Giant Spirit Realm Undead and said, “Why did Little Hai return to the Octopus Islands so soon? Why didn’t he come and kill a couple more enemies?”
Mu Yu has a blaming tone in his voice. In his opinion, nothing was more important than killing the people from the Giant Spirit Realm. Zhao Hai had formidable strength, enough to kill a lot more people. However, he actually went back, causing Mu Yu to be displeased.
The Giant Spirit Realm Undead replied, “Master said that he went back in order to repair the acquired Giant Spirit Treasure Ships and Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots.”
Upon hearing the Undead, Mu Yu’s displeasure immediately vanished. He nodded and said, “I see, then I guess everyone will have to withdraw as well.” After he said that, he led everyone back to the Octopus Islands.
Just as Zhao Hai thought, Mu Yu was planning on an assault against the Giant Spirit Realm. So when he heard the Undead saying that Zhao Hai was going to repair the Giant Spirit Treasure Ships, he immediately understood what Zhao Hai wanted to convey. Zhao Hai also wanted to attack the Giant Spirit Realm.
When he thought of this, Mu Yu couldn’t help but feel embarrassed for being displeased at Zhao Hai. Without himself knowing, he flew quicker as he thought about seeing Zhao Hai.
The group quickly returned to the Octopus Islands. However, they didn’t see Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai was currently inside his cave residence. Undead were guarding the entrance, not letting anyone in.
Seeing this, Mu Yu immediately gave the order forbidding people from approaching Zhao Hai’s residence. At the same time, he made the refiners prepare just in case Zhao Hai needs assistance.
After dealing with Zhao Hai’s matters, Mu Yu and the others summarized the fight to write a combat report to be sent back to the realm.
As Mu Yu and the others were busy making their combat results, the entire Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was shaken. Fights between the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm were no longer news to the people in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. This was because every couple hundred years, these two realms would wage a huge war against each other. The people from other realms were already used to this.
However, whenever these two realms go to war, other high-grade realms would still pay attention. This wasn’t to say that they cared about the two realms. On the contrary, these people were harboring evil intentions. They wanted to see how each war ends and see if they can get easy pickings between the two of them.
Because of this, almost every high-grade realm knew the results of the battles. But the result this time caused them to be shaken. This wasn’t the result they expected.
Not only the high-grade realms, even the lower-grade realms didn’t expect this result. The subordinate realms under the Giant Spirit Realm were now in confusion. Now they knew the reason why the World of Cultivation defected to the Hundred Treasures Realm along with the Xu Race. This was because the Giant Spirit Realm has given up on them.
These smaller realms give tribute to high-grade realms in exchange for protection. However, the situation of the World of Cultivation was different. Although they had been giving tribute, they weren’t protected. What made these smaller realms despise the Giant Spirit Realm was the fact that the World of Cultivation was attacked by the Hundred Treasures Realm, the Giant Spirit Realm’s greatest enemy. But in the end, they still gave up on the World of Cultivation. How can people not despise them for it? How can a high-grade realm do this?
If it was just this, then it might not have been as impactful. The Giant Spirit Realm was a strong realm. Even if they cannot deal with the Hundred Treasures Realm, they could still deal with smaller realms with no problem.
If the Giant Spirit Realm managed to trample the traitors in the Octopus Islands, then nothing might have happened. They didn’t even need to eliminate the traitors. As long as they teach the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race a lesson, then the message would have been received. These smaller realms wouldn’t think badly of the Giant Spirit Realm.
However, the Giant Spirit Realm lost. Moreover, their defeat was resounding. Three Giant Spirit Treasures Ships were destroyed along with 20 Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. Of their 80 thousand people army, twenty thousand died, and tens of thousands more were injured. Nobody expected this result, even the Hundred Treasures Realm.
The higher-ups of the Hundred Treasures Realm sent Mu Yu over in order to hold the Giant Spirit Realm. The longer Mu Yu delays the Giant Spirit Realm, the more disadvantageous it would be for the Giant Spirit Realm. Moreover, the Hundred Treasures Realm would be able to use this opportunity to make a move on the Giant Spirit Realm’s subordinate realms. Then they would amass an army and fight the Giant Spirit Realm in a decisive battle.
The higher-ups didn’t expect Mu Yu to Win. In their minds, this was an impossible feat. After all, the Octopus Islands was too close to the Giant Spirit Realm’s territory. The Giant Spirit Realm could easily amass a giant army. Although the Hundred Treasures Realm was connected to the Octopus Islands via the transmission formations, sending over a large army would still be very hard to do.
An army needed a place to rest and the Octopus Islands’ area was limited. The islands could accommodate an army, but the number was limited. For this reason, the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t send out a lot of people to defend the Octopus Islands.
But things have changed, Mu Yu defeated the Giant Spirit Realm. This was something that nobody expected. Therefore, the Hundred Treasures Realm immediately prepared troops in order to reinforce the Octopus Islands.
Before the battle, the Hundred Treasures Realm already contacted the subordinate realms of the Giant Spirit Realm and explained why the World of Cultivation defected. They were hoping that these subordinate realms would follow.
But during that time, these subordinate realms were hesitant. After all, things haven’t reached a certain degree, so it’s normal for them to hesitate in making the move.
The Hundred Treasures Realm weren’t worried that these lower-grade realms would report to the Giant Spirit Realm. After all, the things they said about the World of Cultivation was true. And these lower-grade realms would want to have a way out for themselves. They were also afraid. Afraid that the Hundred Treasures Realm would destroy them if they told the Giant Spirit Realm. By then, if the Giant Spirit Realm abandons them like what they did to the World of Cultivation, then they would be finished.
This was completely possible in the minds of these lower-grade realms. Don’t forget that the World of Cultivation was battling the Hundred Treasures Realm, they even killed the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Even then, the Giant Spirit Realm still abandoned them. If the Hundred Treasures Realm chose to deal with them because they told a secret, then the Giant Spirit Realm might abandon them in a heartbeat.
Now that Ba Li basically confirmed that they abandoned the World of Cultivation, the minds of these lower-grade realms began to turn.
And with the overwhelming defeat of the Giant Spirit Realm, the thoughts of these smaller realms began to wander.
As for the high-grade realms, they had even more thoughts in their minds. They didn’t expect that a clear victor would appear between the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm after years of being in a stalemate.
Although the Hundred Treasures Realm’s victory was only a small one, its implication was huge. The people from high-grade realms were stunned for a while before they immediately studied how to deal with the situation.
For these high-grade realms, keeping the current state of the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm would be the best situation. If one side swallows the other, then this would give the victor a huge leap in strength in a very short time. This would be troublesome to the other high-grade realms.
In the past, they didn’t think that something like this would happen. But when it really did happen, they would have to find a way to deal with it. But what made them feel troubled was the fact that they didn’t know what to do in a short time.
At this point, the high-grade realms couldn’t help but get a headache. They didn’t know whether they should help the Giant Spirit Realm or the Hundred Treasures Realm.
