Chapter 1529 – I’m Going!
Zhao Hai stared. He didn’t really expect things to be like this. He thought that he could be on par with disciples of Immortal Experts with only his own skill. He didn’t expect people to actually ignore his situation.
Zhao Hai knew that Mu Yu and Tang Jie were both stable people, especially after their experience in the war. Since they both told him about this, it means that it was very likely to happen. This caused his expression to change.
Zhao Hai looked at Mu Yu and said, “Big Brother Mu, what advantage do they gain doing this?”
Mu Yu smiled bitterly and said, “What other advantage could there be? In their opinion, cutting off the arms of the Mu faction is an advantage. In fact, I think that Immortal Experts like them should not interfere with the matters of the realm. However, this was the rules, and the leadership would take turns. Nobody can change it.”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “I didn’t expect there to be so many twists and turns in the Hundred Treasures Realm. If this is the case, then will the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race be touched as well?”
Mu Yu shook his head and said, “That won’t happen. There is a clear rule in the realm that as long as someone becomes a subordinate, they would not be suppressed. The offenders will be disposed of by the Immortal Experts.”
Zhao Hai let out a long breath and said, “Good. So what am I expected to do? Do I just explore the sea? If they really want me to go, I’ll have no choice but to go and see.”
Mu Yu didn’t expect Zhao Hai to say that. He couldn’t help but be stunned as he said, “Little Hai, don’t go. The poisonous fog and the black clouds are very powerful. Even Immortal Experts won’t dare face them, not to say you. You shouldn’t go.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “That is because Immortal Experts generally don’t have Faith Power. Brother Mu, let me tell you the truth. Ever since I gained Faith Power, I had been invincible against poisons. Whether it be the purple fog or the dark cloud, they wouldn’t be able to do anything to me. Don’t worry about me. I’m also a Space Divergent Ability User. If I really can’t bear it, then I will return.”
Mu Yu shook his head and said, “That’s no good. Master already instructed me to prevent you from going. If you suffern an accident, the Hundred Treasures Realm would lose so much.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “If I don’t go, then the other party would just hatch another plot. I might as well go. And if I manage to find something beyond the sea, then wouldn’t that be good for the Hundred Treasures Realm? Don’t worry, nothing will happen to me.”
Despite hearing this, Mu Yu still shook his head. Seeing this, Zhao Hai added, “Big Brother Mu, let me tell you, even if the realm doesn’t send me, I would still want to go to the sea in order to take a look. Just as you said, we could no longer gain more land. Moreover, I don’t want to see land anymore, it’s no longer interesting for me. It’s better to head out to the sea. I’m not a normal person. I want to go to weird places and collect weird things.”
Seeing Zhao Hai’s resolve, Mu Yu said, “You really want to go? If you really do, you have to see Master. I can’t take responsibility for this decision.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Alright, then I’ll go visit Elder Mu. Meanwhile, let’s have a drink and some food.”
Mu Yu impatiently shook his head and said, “If you go, I will help you take care of Bluetree Planet. So you don’t have anything to worry about.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “There’s no need for you to look after the planet once I go. I will take the children with me so they can learn. This is also a lesson for them.”
Mu Yu smiled bitterly and said, “You really want to play around. Alright, you can discuss this with Master. Let’s have a drink.”
The four ate and drank while chatting. Zhao Hai also asked about the Immortal Expert who was about to take over the Hundred Treasures Realm. From what Mu Yu said, the person’s name was surnamed Shen, His full name was Shen Wei. He was an old Immortal Expert who had some problems with Mu Yao since they were young. The two fought against each other their whole lives. Later on, when Mu Yao entered the Immortal Stage first, Shen Wei took it as the greatest shame in his life. Although Mu Yao didn’t care about him, this person had always wanted to mov against the Mu faction. It was just that he couldn’t do anything to Mu Yao’s faction.
However, a few years ago, Shen Wei’s direct disciple went outside and got killed. Up until now, nobody was able to discover who killed him. However, that disciple used to be on par with Mu Yu. Because of this, Shen Wei suspected that it was the Mu Faction that killed his disciple and since then he wanted to retaliate. But since Mu Yao was in-charge of the realm, even if Shen Wei wanted to retaliate, he wouldn’t be able to do anything. And now that Mu Yao was about to hand over control, Mu Yu and the others were instructed to be more careful. They were all instructed to close up.
Mu Yao wasn’t very fond of Shen Wei. Because Shen Wei had been domineering, many people in the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t like him. Mu Yao was the exact opposite. He was gentle and knew how to reward and punish. Because of this, there were more people around Mu Yao. The reason why Mu Yao didn’t confront Shen Wei was because he didn’t want to cause any instability in the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Naturally, Shen Wei also didn’t dare go too far. Although he was resentful towards Mu Yao, he was also someone who thought of the larger picture. He also considered the future of the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Because Zhao Hai wasn’t his disciple, Mu Yao was afraid that Shen Wei would act against him. Moreover, Zhao Hai made a lot of great contributions towards the Hundred Treasures Realm. The more achievements Zhao Hai made, the more unfavorable it would be for Shen Wei. This was because all these achievements would be placed under Mu Yao’s name.
Additionally, Zhao Hai’s performance in the recent war was too eye-catching. A lot of youths in the Hundred Treasures Realm treat him as an idol. It can be said that Zhao Hai’s fame was bound to surpass Mu Yu’s. In this case, it would be impossible if Shen Wei didn’t try to deal with him.
Shen Wei wouldn’t dare make a move on Mu Yu. This was because Mu Yu was the foremost expert of his generation. Making a move on Mu Yu was basically crippling the future of the realm. Not only Mu Yao, but the other Immortal Experts wouldn’t agree.
However, Zhao Hai was different. Firstly, Zhao Hai was just an immigrant from the World of Cultivation. Secondly, Zhao Hai wasn’t Mu Yao’s direct disciple. Thirdly, Shen Wei didn’t know that Zhao Hai has the ability to recycle waste materials. And even if they knew, they still wouldn’t accept it. Therefore, it’s quite possible for Shen Wei to make a move on Zhao Hai. Because of this, Mu Yao made sure to warn Zhao Hai.
Upon understanding Shen Wei’s position, Zhao Hai sighed. He could hear from Mu Yu’s words that Shen Wei wasn’t a bad person. However, he was somewhat biased and stubborn. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have pinned the murder of his disciple onto Mu Yao.
After the four finished drinking, they rested a while before they all went to the headquarters. Mu Yao was currently very busy. He needed to organize everything before Shen Wei took over. Everything needed to be smoothed out before the handover.
This was quite normal for the Hundred Treasures Realm, so they were used to the process. It’s just that so many things happened in Mu Yao tenure. He had a lot of things to deal with.
Seeing the four arrive, Mu Yao couldn’t help but stare. Then he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, why are you here? Do you need anything?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I have seen Elder Mu. This time, I came to discuss something with you.”
Mu Yao raised his brow and said, “What is it?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I heard that the realm would send people out to the sea. I’m thinking of volunteering for the task.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yao couldn’t help but stare. Then his expression changed as he said, “No, absolutely not. If you suffer an accident, the Hundred Treasures Realm would lose out too much.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and repeated to Mu Yao what he said to Mu Yu. Moreover, he also said that he would take the 10 thousand children with him to gain experience.
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yao was in doubt. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, do you really want to go? How confident are you?” Mu Yao knew clearly that Zhao Hai wouldn’t hurt the children. If he wasn’t confident, then he wouldn’t take the children with him.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I’m very confident. Elder, don’t worry. When have I made decisions where I’m not sure?”
Mu Yao looked at Zhao Hai, then he laughed and said, “Alright. But you still need to be cautious. Hearing your reason, then I’m assured. If you’re really confident, then you can go. However, this is only our speculation. If Shen Wei makes you go, then you can. If he doesn’t, then you can forget it.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Even if you don’t make me go, then I would still take a look. Originally, I’m still on the fence, but now I have to go. Elder Mu, this one also has something to tell you. Although your kindness is for the Hundred Treasures Realm, others can still treat it as weakness. When necessary, it’s better to be overbearing.”
After hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yu and the others let out a cold air. Zhao Hai’s words towards Mu Yao were somewhat excessive. Mu Yao was currently the head of the Hundred Treasures Realm. Zhao Hai was essentially giving advice to Mu Yao. And his words might cause turmoil to the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Mu Yao narrowed his eyes and said, “Little Hai, what do you mean by your words?”
Zhao Hai replied with a serious tone, “Elder, if Elder Shen Wei can send me to the sea, then what if he sends someone else as well? Every Severed Soul Expert in the Hundred Treasures Realm is precious. If something happens to them, then it would be a great loss to the realm. If he can send people to explore the sea now, then what’s stopping him from sending others later? The Hundred Treasures Realm cannot always accept such losses. It would be detrimental to the realm’s future development.”
When he spoke up to this point, Zhao Hai stopped for a moment, then he continued, “Everyone knows of my great contributions to the realm. If Elder Shen Wei sends me on an expedition to the sea, is he really the one that should be making the real decisions for the realm?”
