Chapter 1489 – Revealing Cards
The grudge between the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm run deep. Their conflict has been going on for a millenia. Most grudges would sizzle out throughout that period of time. It has been too long, and the Hundred Treasures Realm has paid too much. Now that they have forced the Giant Spirit Realm into a dead end, how can they just cower before the Fireweaver Race and retreat?
The Fireweaver Race was a strong group even compared to the Hundred Treasures Realm. However, the Hundred Treasures Realm’s hatred towards the Giant Spirit Realm was much bigger than their fear.
The Hell King’s Ship returned to the Octopus Islands. Once they arrived, Mu Yu told everyone to take a rest. Then he led Tang Jie, Tang Wen, and Zhao Hai towards his residence.
Once the group had sat down, Mu Yu gloomily said, “Our Hundred Treasures Realm doesn’t have a backer like the Fireweaver Race. I didn’t expect the Giant Spirit Realm to use this card.”
Zhao Hai frowned and said, “Big Brother Mu, go back and inquire about the situation. With us here, defending the island wouldn’t be a problem.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yu stared for a moment before he nodded, “Right, I should go back and see what we can do. If we just retreat, then it would be a huge blow to the subordinate realms. Moreover, all of our previous efforts would be wasted.”
Zhao Hai replied, “Big Brother Mu can go back. I’ll guarantee that no matter who comes over, the Octopus Islands will be ours. Even if they manage to steal the island, I’ll take care of the people we have here.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yu couldn’t help but stare. Then he asked, “Little Hai, did you discover something?”
Zhao Hai bitterly smiled, he didn’t expect Mu Yu to see through his words. He nodded and said, “It seems like people from the Fireweaver Race has reached the Imperial Spirit Sect.”
Mu Yu couldn’t help but stare, then his complexion changed as he said, “Are you sure? If that’s the case, then the Giant Spirit Realm will certainly come over to attack. This time, the Fireweaver Race will be involved. This is becoming a huge problem.”
Zhao Hai replied, “Big Brother Mu, you need to head back. Leave this place to us. The Octopus Islands have 60 thousand people. We should be able to hold on for some time. What’s most important right now is to deal with the Fireweaver Race. If we can’t deal with them, then we’ll have to retreat.”
Mu Yu nodded, he sighed and said, “The problem is that we don’t even know what the Giant Spirit Realm offered to the Fireweaver Race. It’s difficult to have the Fireweaver Race exit this war. I think the realm would find one of the five to be allied with. But in this case, we wouldn’t have enough time to deal with the Giant Spirit Realm.”
Mu Yu’s emotions were very heavy, but he has calmed down now. He knew that the presence of the Fireweaver Race has made the situation more complicated.
The Fireweaver Race weren’t known to be charitable. They certainly received benefits in order to participate in this war. Without this, they simply wouldn’t make a move. These powerful realms were innately greedy. Mu Yu was a key person trained by the Hundred Treasures Realm, so he knew things regarding these realms. The reason these five realms don’t reveal themselves in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was because they were surrounded by realms like the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm.
Although the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm were bitter enemies and wanted to get rid of each other, things became different when it came to these five realms. These five realms shouldn’t participate in any battles in the battlefield. Otherwise, sooner or later the realm would be divided amongst the five of them.
Therefore, the other high-grade realms reached an agreement. As long as one of the five realms interfere, then the other high-grade realms would work against them.
But the situation now became different. This time, the Giant Spirit Realm asked the Fireweaver Race to come. Otherwise, the Fireweaver Race wouldn’t have arrived lest they incur the anger of the other realms.
As long as it was the Giant Spirit Realm that asked for help, then the Fireweaver Race can use this as a pretext to participate in the battle. This was a troublesome matter. This meant that the Giant Spirit Realm had let a wolf into their house.
When he thought of this, Mu Yu couldn’t help but grit his teeth in anger. Those idiots from the Giant Spirit Realm didn’t know what they just did. Now that the Fireweaver Realm has come out, it wouldn’t be long before the Giant Spirit Realm gets swallowed.
Mu Yu didn’t hide the truth from Zhao Hai and the others and told them about this matter. Upon hearing this, Zhao Hai’s eyes shone as he said, “Big Brother Mu, if that’s the case, then things would be easier. Since the Fireweaver Race inserted themselves into this battle, we can call upon the other high-grade realms for help. This would not only increase the enemies of the Giant Spirit Realm, we can also teach the Fireweaver Race a lesson. They need to learn that they cannot just insert their claws wherever they want.”
When he heard Zhao Hai, Mu Yu froze for a moment. Then his eyes lit up. He forgot about this. He nodded and said, “Good. Then I’ll leave things here to you. Little Jie, Little Wen, although you’re good commanders, you still fall short compared to Little Hai. I’ll leave the Octopus Islands to him while you two help him manage things. Remember, this matter is important for the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Tang Jie and Tang Wen had no objections. The two had already spent some time with Zhao Hai. Naturally, they know Zhao Hai’s skill. Hearing Mu Yu, Tang Jie smiled faintly and said, “Big Brother Mu, don’t worry. I’ll help Little Hai. Nothing will go wrong here. But Big Brother Mu needs to find a solution as soon as possible. I reckon the Fireweaver Race would want to attack us as soon as possible. As long as we hold them back, our discussion with the other high-grade realms and even the rest of the Five Great Realms might become easier.”
Mu Yu nodded then he stood up and said, “Little Hai, we can’t lose the Octopus Islands. I don’t care what other trump cards you have, but you need to hold the island. If I find out that you’re still holding back, let’s see how I deal with you.”
Zhao Hai stared, then he smiled faintly and said, “It seems like things won’t work out this time if I don’t work hard a bit. Big Brother Mu, don’t worry. I’ll make sure to keep the Octopus Islands before you come back.” Mu Yu nodded then turned around and left. The three sent Mu Yu off at the transmission formation before returning to Tang Jie’s residence.
After entering the residence, Tang Jie turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, what do you plan to do right now?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Brother Tang, let’s call the commanders of the subordinates first and tell them about the situation and make some arrangements. I think the Fireweaver Race will arrive in a couple of days.”
Tang Jie stared, his expression changed as he asked, “They’re coming?’
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “They’re coming. There’s two thousand Fireweavers along with 30 thousand subordinates. With the Giant Spirit Realm and its 60 thousand subordinates, the total number of people coming over is over 90 thousand.”
Tang Jie’s expression became difficult as he said, “How many people do we have right now?” They suffered losses in the last battle, and some people were also injured. These injuries were quite major, making the afflicted unable to fight.
Zhao Hai replied, “We have about 58 thousand people. Five thousand of which are from the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Tang Jie’s brows turned tighter. He discovered that things had taken a huge turn. Although they had never been defeated, once they were, the Hundred Treasures Realm would be in danger.
Thinking of this, Tang Jie couldn’t help but look at Zhao Hai and ask, “Little Hai, what do you think we should do?”
Zhao Hai replied, “We defend. Put all of our power in defending. As long as we keep the Octopus Islands, we win. We need to let the others see that the Fireweaver Race isn’t to be feared. They can also be defeated.”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “Alright. Little Wen, immediately call every commander here.” Tang Wennodded, then he took off to call everyone over.
After Tang Jie and Zhao Hai sat down, Tang Jie sighed and said, “I haven’t seen someone from the Fireweave Race before, but I heard about them. They have three main methods of attack, their tamed beasts, their rifles, and their fire techniques. They are called Fireweavers because of their innate ability to control fire. Their control over fire is so terrifying that they can form fire into a solid thread and weave it into a net. This is also the origin of their Fireweaver name. In addition to their control over fire, their rifles are also terrifying. Their rifles might look ordinary, but they are inscribed with formations. Most artifacts would be destroyed by these rifles. As long as it hits someone, the target’s body would immediately burn. No matter what method is used, it would be impossible to put out the fire. Even Severed Soul Experts cannot save themselves. Then there’s their tamed beasts. They had been trained since they were young. The Fireweaver Race seem to have pills that can make their beasts stronger without turning them into Demons. Any one of these three attacking methods is a headache to deal with, let alone all three of them at once.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “The Fireweavers didn’t bring any large artifacts this time. However, they have an enormous beast that can contend with large artifacts. It would be hard to deal with them. It seems like we can only use the fake spirit snake needles to deal with them.”
Tang Jie replied, “The fake spirit snake needles? But we only have very few. What do we do?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “This time, I won’t let everyone go out on their own. I want everyone to be inside the Hell King’s Ship, the Pagoda, and the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship. With the defensive strength of these three artifacts, we should be able to protect ourselves. Then we can slowly deal with the attackers.”
