Chapter 1498 – Huge Celebration
Mu Yu let out a long breath. The Elders have already decided that they would send people to lobby other high-grade realms to unite against the Fireweavers. If the Fireweavers are allowed to stretch their hands into the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, then the high-grade realms would no longer have any cake to eat in the future.
Mu Yu agreed to this decision. They needed to fight back against the Fireweavers. Right now, he was worried about the Octopus Islands. If the island cannot hold, then the Hundred Treasures Realm would be pushed into a passive position.
At this time, a jade sword message came flying towards him. Mu Yu received the jade sword message and swept it with his spiritual force. Then his expression shook before it was replaced with elation. Then he turned around and ran back to the mansion.
This mansion was enormous. It comprised of more than ten smaller residences. Inside was a conference hall where the Hundred Treasures Realm made their decisions.
The conference hall wasn’t extravagantly decorated. On the contrary, it looked very plain. This was the custom of the hundred Treasures Realm that the first Realm Master enforced. The conference hall must have no distractions so that the decisions made inside it remained pure.
Inside the conference hall were several white haired elders. All of their auras were extraordinary. It was clear that they were all Immortal Experts.
Most realms would leave their Immortal Experts alone, leaving them with little to no civil responsibilities. The Hundred Treasures Realm was different. Their Immortal Experts needed to take charge for ten-year shifts. And each shift shouldn’t be less than five. The Immortal Experts inside the conference hall were the ones in charge of the current cycle.
Besides the Immortal Experts, there were also other old people inside the conference hall. However, they were Severed Soul Experts. These were experts who were stuck at the stage and had yet to ascend to Immortality. However, they were still one of the strongest existences in the realm. They held great reputation in the Hundred Treasures Realm.
In front of these elders, Mu Yu can be considered to be their grandchild. With his strength as well as his Immortal Stage Master, Mu Yu can be said to have some status among these people.
The Elders had just finished discussing. The reason they were here was to confirm which high-grade realms they would ask assistance from. First of all, they need to have enough status, not just in the eye of the Hundred Treasures Realm, but also to the other realms.
Mu Yu was unqualified to participate in this discussion. He was still a junior. Although he was strong, his influence was still lacking. He still needed more accomplishments. Therefore, the ones selecting the realms would be these old veterans.
Because of this, and the fact that he was worried about the Octopus Islands, Mu Yu decided to leave early. The people inside the room understood his thoughts and thus didn’t object to him leaving.
At this time, seeing Mu Yu hurrying back, the people in the room felt strange. One of the Immortal Experts knit his brows and asked, “Little Yu, what’s the matter? Is something wrong?”
Mu Yu hastily bowed and said, “Master, disciple had just received news about the Octopus Islands. Little Jie and the others were able to successfully repel the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit realm. Moreover, they were able to wipe out the 2 thousand Fireweavers sent as vanguard.”
The people in the room were stunned. Mu Yu just told them that the Fireweavers had arrived at the Imperial Spirit Sect and were joining with the Giant Spirit Realm in order to deal with the Octopus Island. This made everyone worried about the island’s situation.
Fortunately, they already stationed people on the island, so they didn’t need to worry too much about it. Even if the Octopus Island fails to hold up, then this would only give them more reason to ask for help from the other high-grade realms.
It can be said that they didn’t want Zhao Hai to assume command of the island and gain victory. Instead, they wanted Zhao Hai and the others to valiantly defend the island to let the other realms see that the Fireweavers needed to be stopped, even if they lose in the end.
They didn’t expect Zhao Hai to actually be able to defeat the Fireweavers. Moreover, they were even able to wipe out the 2000 people that the Fireweaver Race sent over. This caused everyone in the conference hall to be shocked.
Mu Yu’s Master, Mu Yao, looked at Mu Yu and said, “Little Mu, is this true? Did the message come from Little Jin himself?”
Mu Yu nodded and said, “It’s true. Little Hai brought three large artifacts and met the Fireweaver Army outside the Octopus Island. The Fireweavers used their rifles but they couldn’t do anything to Little Hai’s large artifacts. Also, we need to prepare materials in case Little Hai can make fake Fireweaver Rifles.”
Mu Yao stared, then his expression lit up as he asked, “Little Hai can copy the rifles of the Fireweavers?” Nobody else in the room has met Zhao Hai, but everyone knew about him. In their opinion, Zhao Hai was an absolute talent.
Mu Yu nodded and said, “Yes, that’s what Little Jie said. Little Hai is now beginning to see if he can copy the fireweaver rifles. But I don’t think it would be a problem for him. After all, he was able to copy the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship and the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needles. It’s best for us to start preparing resources. Once Little Jie confirms that Zhao Hai can make copies, we’ll send them immediately.”
Mu Yao nodded, then he turned his head to the other Immortal Experts and said, “What do you think?”
A thin Immortal Elder stroke his heard as he nodded and said, “Although I haven’t met Zhao Hai, he has made great contributions towards the Hundred Treasures Realm. If he’s confident that he can make copy rifles, then it’s possible that he can. If we have these rifles, the strength of the Hundred Treasures Realm would increase. When the time comes, we wouldn’t be afraid of facing the Fireweavers on our own. I think we should prepare resources ahead of time for Little Yu to use.”
The other Elders also agreed. Mu Yao turned his head to Mu Yu and said, “Alright, Little Yu, go make preparations. If there’s more news from the Octopus Islands, inform us immediately.” Mu Yu nodded before he turned around and left.
The Hundred Treasures Realm was abundant in resources. After many years, the Hundred Treasures Realm amassed materials far beyond what Zhao Hai can imagine. If Mu Yu felt heartache with how these materials were used before, he wasn’t aggrieved now.
The realm had obtained too many treasures and artifacts. In addition to failed artifacts, all of these accounted for a lot of useless waste for the Hundred Treasures Realm. Planets were used in order to store these things. As to how many storage planets there were, even the Hundred Treasures Realm had lost count.
In the past, these materials were all useless. But now things were different. With Zhao Hai’s ability to deconstruct materials, the waste they had before could now be turned into treasures. The materials they could get from those wastes far surpassed the ones they had in hand now.
Because of this, Mu Yu didn’t care about the materials he was preparing. Since he didn’t know what resources the rifles used, he got a bit of everything.
The Hundred Treasures Realm just has too many resources. Because of this, it took some time before Mu Yu was able to get them all. Without him noticing, several hours went by. As Mu Yu was preparing the materials, a jade sword message arrived.
Mu Yu received the jade sword message and swept it with his spiritual force. After reading the contents, he immediately dashed back to the conference hall. The people inside the hall have reduced, but the five Immortal Elders were still there.
The five looked at Mu Yu when he arrived. After giving a bow, Mu Yu turned to mu Yao and said, “Master, great news. Little Hai can remake the rifles. Moreover, he was able to make some improvements on it. Now, he’s researching on making cannons from it.” As he said that, he handed the jade sword message over to Mu Yao.
After Mu Yao received the jade sword message, he scanned it with his spiritual force and immediately confirmed the news. Mu Yao’s expression also showed a hint of joy. Then he handed the jade sword message to the elder beside him as he said, “Everyone, this is a great event. We’ve gained another weapon for the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
After the other Elders saw the contents of the jade sword message, their expressions also lit up. One of the Elders said, “I think we should call Little Hai over. It’s better for him to refine here than on the Octopus Island.”
Mu Yao stared, he hadn’t thought of this point. He hesitated for a moment before he nodded and said, “I think that is possible. Should we withdraw our troops from Octopus Island? The island is placed in a precarious position. And now that Little Hai and the others were able to repel the Fireweaver and Giant Spirit Realm army, this meant that we have proven our stance against the Fireweaver Race. I reckon it’s fine if they return.”
The other Elders nodded. Meanwhile, Mu Yu knit his brows as he said, “Master, I don’t think we can remove our troops in the Octopus Islands in the meantime. As long as we have troops there to attract the attention of the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm, our territory would be safe from attacks. If we withdraw from the Octopus Islands, the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm will come for us in our territory. If that happens, the fight will be in our own backyard. Even if we’re able to repel them, our subordinates would still suffer damages. So I think we should hold on to the Octopus Islands. Little Hai can’t come here as well. As far as I know, only Little Hai’s large artifacts are able to block the Fireweaver assault. If we remove Little Hai, the troops left behind wouldn’t be able to defend.”
