Chapter 1525 – Matters Behind The Curtains
When Zhao Hai appeared on the World of Cultivation’s stronghold, Kong Miao was already waiting for him along with some people. Seeing Zhao Hai come out, Kong Miao immediately welcomed him as he bowed and said, “Mister Zhao Hai, thank you.”
Zhao Hai stared, then he smiled and said, “Grandmaster, there’s no need to be too polite. Just call me Little Hai like before. The World of Cultivation is my home, I cannot just ignore its issues. Grandmaster, I still have things I need to take care of in the Hundred Treasures Realm, so I won’t be remaining here for long. If the World of Cultivation needs anything, don’t hesitate to tell me.”
Kong Miao had some understanding about Zhao Hai’s matters and knew what Zhao Hai needed to deal with. He heard rumors that Zhao Hai has been bestowed a planet by the Hundred Treasures Realm. Naturally, he didn’t know that this was because Zhao Hai was able to give the Hundred Treasures Realm a planet’s worth of materials. They thought that the planet was bestowed because of Zhao Hai’s contributions during the war.
Kong Miao was also aware of the Hundred Treasures Realm’s rules of inheritance. Zhao Hai would be assigned 10 thousand youths who hadn’t begun their cultivation. These youths would be Zhao Hai’s future servants. He could also choose among them who he would take as disciples.
Zhao Hai just got a planet, along with the responsibilities tied with it. Him going to the World of Cultivation to help was already a huge favor. It would be unreasonable if Kong Miao held Zhao Hai up here. Because of this, Kong Miao immediately said, “Then, Little Hai, I won’t be keeping you. If you need anything, you can tell us. Although the World of Cultivation is a small realm, we are also your most solid backing.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Grandmaster Kong Miao, you’re too polite. This Zhao Hai will not forget that I’m from the World of Cultivation. Well then, I’ll be going.” After saying that, he entered a nearby transmission formation and returned to the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters.
The Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters was currently very busy. The war caused too much damage to the realm, especially to the headquarters. Everything needed repairs so that they can return to being operational.
Moreover, although the Hundred Treasures Realm managed to gain territory, they had yet to digest it. Don’t think that other realms wouldn’t fight for these territories. Those fellows weren’t saints. As long as they have the opportunity, they would definitely take a bite.
Because of this, not only does the Hundred Treasures Realm need to stabilize internally, they also have to guard their newly-gained territory. Each person in the headquarters was very busy. The place looked like a machine running to full capacity.
But even so, Mu Yu and Tang Jie still had time to welcome Zhao Hai. Seeing Zhao Hai appear, Mu Yu stepped forward and said, “Little Hai, is everything fine?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Everything’s fine. Brother Mu doesn’t need to worry. How is it going? If you need help, you can tell me.”
Mu Yu paused for a moment, then he said, “Now that you mention it. I have something I need your help with. I heard that you’ve built an academy on your planet. Can you lend us your robots and machines?”
Hearing Mu Yu, Zhao Hai laughed and said, “So it’s this. Don’t worry. When I head back, I’ll immediately send them over to you.”
Mu Yu smiled and said, “A lot of buildings have been destroyed all around the territory. Although we don’t use most of them, this also concerns the face of the Hundred Treasures Realm. We have no choice but to fix it. By the way, Little Hai, it seems like your academy is doing well. How did you design it?”
Zhao Hai gave out a smile. Construction wasn’t easy to do. From the building design to the internal decorations, everything needed to be considered well. Most cultivators were ignorant in the matters of construction. Even sect buildings were basic structures that were modified a bit. To be honest, these buildings weren’t built very well.
On the other hand, the academy that Zhao Hai built was designed and made by the Universal Scanner. Naturally, this structure was incomparable to basic structures. And these buildings were built very efficiently.
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Laura and the others designed it. Why did Brother Mu ask? Do you want to redesign the buildings of the headquarters? I can bring them over when I head back.”
Mu Yu patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder and said, “Alright, then I’ll leave it to you. Have the sister-in-laws come over and help us redesign the structures of the headquarters. With the realm’s recent victory, Master and the others want to rebuild the outer halls and make it more prestigious. Later on, we’ll use it to receive people from other realms.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright. Then I’ll head back and have them come over. I’ll make sure to show Brother Mu the architecture they’re capable of.”
Mu Yu nodded. Zhao Hai cupped his fist towards him before turning around and entering the transmission formation, returning back to Bluetree Planet. The academy on the planet had been mostly built. The academy was built based on a simple atmosphere. However, it wasn’t built with simple materials. Many high-grade materials were used to construct the buildings. And since the Space had them all, the structure was quickly built.
At this point, only the finishing touches were left. Zhao Hai nodded and left some Undead to take care of the place’s greenery. After that, he brought the robots along with Laura and the others back to the headquarters. Naturally, he didn’t bring Cai’er and Julie along.
Cai’er’s form was unusual. Additionally, she was in-charge of taking care of the Space. Because of this, Zhao Hai didn’t take her out much. As for Julie, she had yet to get used to dealing with humans, so she stayed inside the Space with Cai’er.
Zhao Hai took Laura and the others to the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters. Seeing them arrive, Mu Yu immediately greeted them as he laughed and said, “You really came back fast. Come, Master wants to see you.”
Zhao Hai stared, then he quickly replied, “Elder Mu wants to see me? Is something wrong?”
Mu Yu smiled and said, “It’s fine. Master head that you brought your wives over, so he wants to take a look. Hehe, Master is really fond of you, he says he wants to give gifts to sister-in-laws.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly as he led Laura and the others to the conference room. Mu Yao, Tang Yaoen, and the others were already inside. Zhao Hai took Laura and the others to give greetings to the Elders.
Mu Yao took a close look at Laura and the others, then he laughed and said, “I didn’t expect Little Hai to be such a romantic. He actually has such beautiful wives. As an Elder, I naturally can’t lose to you. Take these, treat it as my meeting gift to you.” After he said that, artifacts appeared in front of Laura and the others. The women quickly accepted them and gave their thanks.
Mu Yao turned his head to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, you should be aware about the current wave the Hundred Treasures Realm is riding on right now. This is both a good and bad thing. Not to talk about anything else, because of the Hundred Treasures Realm’s current fame, our headquarters is receiving countless visitors every day. However, the reception hall of the headquarters is very lacking. I heard that you’re quite good at making buildings. I’ll leave this matter to you. You can destroy whichever building you want. But if you don’t do the job well, I won’t let you off.”
Zhao Hai quickly agreed. Mu Yao laughed and said, “Go all out. Make sure that nobody dares underestimate the Hundred Treasures Realm anymore.” Zhao Hai nodded as he led Laura and the others out of the conference hall.
When he got outside, Zhao Hai took a proper look around the headquarters and the reception hall. Several buildings needed to be destroyed. To be honest, even if they stayed up, they still weren’t great to look at.
Laura and the others also put on a performance. They really couldn’t design a building since the Space did everything. However, they still discussed with each other to keep up appearances.
After looking around for some time, Zhao Hai brought Laura and the others back to his cave residence. When they entered the residence, they immediately entered the Space. Cai’er had already printed out several sketches, each building as beautiful as the next.
Zhao Hai looked over the drawings and nodded. Then he turned to Cai’er and said, “Wait for me while I take these to Elder Mu and the others. Once the buildings are settled, we can return to Bluetree Planet. The children will be sent over as well. I’ll have to trouble you then.”
Laura smiled and said, “Right, Brother Hai, you should be able to rest for a while right? There shouldn’t be anyone coming over to provoke the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Zhao Hai shook his head as he sighed and said, “The situation isn’t that simple. Remember our previous analysis? There may be people standing behind the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm. Don’t you think it’s strange that there seems to be a force that prevents the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield from becoming peaceful? I’m afraid it won’t take long before something happens again. And there’s Julie’s case as well. Who sealed her in Fabio Planet? I feel that these things are connected. We need to see behind the curtains. To be honest, I’m quite worried. It seems like no matter how diligent we work, we’re still pieces in another person’s chessboard.”
Laura and the others turned silent when they heard this. To be honest, they haven’t thought of it like this. Hearing Zhao Hai, they also thought that he made sense. From the World of Cultivation to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, everything that happened seems to have traces of interference from hidden hands. Moreover, the Six Realms Battlefield and the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield were man-made realms filled with treasures. If they told someone about this, then they wouldn’t believe it, but it’s true. So what was really hidden behind all of these things?
