Chapter 1533 – Use Of The Bone Plants
The Immortal Expert never thought that it wouldn’t be Zhao Hai who would move, but instead his woman. The punch that he sent out was just to test Zhao Hai. Seeing Julie get in front, the Immortal Expert couldn’t help but squint his eyes. He wanted to see how strong this woman was.
Julie turned her right hand into a bone blade. As he swung the blade down, the fist was immediately broken. Julie proceeded to attack the Immortal Expert.
Julie was an expert at close-combat. This fighting style requires the fighter to be quick. And because of the Space, Julie was able to comprehend some space laws allowing her to become faster. In a few flashes, she was already in front of the Immortal Expert.
The Immortal Expert was startled. He didn’t expect Julie to be this quick. He quickly withdrew a long spear. This spear was a rifle like the Fireweavers, instead it was the cold weapon spear.
The Immortal Expert raised his spear to counteract Julie’s strike. At the same time, he retreated and took out more long-handled artifacts. Then he proceeded to attack Julie.
Julie was like a bone maggot, sticking close to the Immortal Expert and not allowing any distance between them. Although the Immortal Expert released a few weapons, Julie counteracted by transforming her limbs into weapons as well. It didn’t take long before the Immortal Expert was placed in a disadvantage.
It wasn’t hard to explain why the Immortal Expert was having a hard time. Normally, cultivators would fight at a long-range. A close-combat fighter like Julie was very rare, and only body cultivators do it. However, there weren’t a lot of body cultivators in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Therefore, the Immortal Expert wasn’t used to this type of battle. It’s natural for him to be at the back foot.
Most importantly, Julie wasn’t any weaker than him. It was impossible for the Immortal Expert to use his artifacts to gain an advantage. Because of this, the Immortal Expert had an ugly expression on his face.
Zhao Hai stood on the Hell King’s Ship as he spectated the fight. He didn’t intend to meddle. Also at this time, although the children couldn’t go out to see the fight, they were watching it through a projector.
These children were quite familiar with Julie. Ever since she entered the Space, Julie no longer hungered for humans. Instead, she became fond of children. Because of this, she visited the academy quite often.
Now, seeing Julie fight on the screen, and seeing her being strong, the children couldn’t help but be excited. They cheered every time she clashed with her opponent.
Zhao Hai could see that Julie wasn’t going all out. It seems like she was intending to keep the Immortal Expert from leaving.
However, Zhao Hai also knew how hard it was to keep an Immortal Expert. If one wanted to stop an Immortal Expert from escaping, they would need to be at least a level stronger than them.
The Immortal Expert wasn’t in a good mood. He tried method after method in order to get out of Julie’s entanglement. However, he had been unsuccessful so far. At this point, it had become more difficult to get out.
The two sides fought for one hour. At this point, the Immortal Expert could no longer afford to delay. The longer he stayed here, the more dangerous it would be. This was because Zhao Hai was still on the side watching the battle. If he didn’t leave now, he wouldn’t be able to leave forever.
Thinking of this, the Immortal Expert clenched his teeth as he attacked Julie with his artifacts. Then suddenly he shouted, “Explode!”
The artifacts exploded with a bang. Exploding their artifacts was a technique that cultivators didn’t like to use. This was because this skill damages their soul. It was damaging the enemy with 100 but also hurting yourself for 80. And it might not even kill the enemy. This was a technique primarily used to escape.
Julie could be proud for being able to compel an Immortal Expert to use this technique. The Immortal Expert wants to use the explosion to drive Julie back. It would also be much better if Julie was injured.
Unfortunately, the Immortal Expert was facing Julie. Julie was a Bug Queen. Not only can her limbs become bone weapons, her whole body could transform as well. Because of this, Julie was able to cover her body with bone armor before she was hit by the explosion.
Before the Immortal Expert could leave, Zhao Hai blocked him. Zhao Hai was now wearing full body armor. He didn’t use any weapons and instead used his fists to fight the Immortal Expert.
The Immortal Expert was now feeling depressed. Both Zhao Hai and Julie were fighting in close-combat.
After Zhao Hai clashed with the Immortal Expert, Julie arrived. The two proceeded to team up against the enemy. On the other hand, because he exploded his artifacts, the Immortal Expert was now injured. He was further pushed back.
However, the fight was still not easy. After all, the enemy was an Immortal Expert. He was able to divide his soul and placed it inside his spear to fight against Zhao Hai while the main body faced Julie.
But now, it was obvious that he was no longer Julie’s opponent. First, he wasn’t a body cultivator and he was weak against close-combat. And second, he was already injured.
As for Zhao Hai, he was waiting for an opportunity to capture the spear and send it to the Space. He knew that this spear was the life source weapon of the Immortal Expert. He wanted to send it to the Space and analyze it and see what’s special about it.
However, the soul inside the spear was one with the Immortal Expert. Once the Immortal Expert dies, the soul inside the spear would die as well. In the past, when he sent Immortal Experts to the Space, they were already dead. Because of this, the spirit inside their artifact was also dead. He wanted to study their life source weapons, but he didn’t have any opportunity to do so.
Because of this, he wanted an artifact of an Immortal Expert that was still alive. This wasn’t easy to do. The soul inside the artifact was also at the Immortal Stage. Taking this artifact to the Space was as hard as sending an Immortal Expert themselves into the Space.
As he fought with the spear, Zhao Hai was also paying attention to Julie’s situation. Julie was now on the winning side. Although the Immortal Expert roared again and again, he could only parry the attacks coming after him. He didn’t have the strength to fight back. It seems like it would only be a matter of time before Julie kills him. Zhao Hai needs to hurry up.
Zhao Hai intensified his attacks as the spear clashed with him. Then at this moment, an opportunity appeared. He waved his hand and a long iron chain wrapped around the spear. The artifact seems to be stunned by the sudden change, and this pause was enough for Zhao Hai to send it through a spatial rift.
The Immortal Expert was connected to his spear. Now, he suddenly found out that his spear had been cut out. He was shocked and couldn’t help but pause. Julie used this chance to pierce his throat using a bone hook.
At this moment, a prompt came from the Space, “Foreign program detected. Subjugating program, program subjugated. The program seems to be a divine soul. Since it has been separated from the main body, it is rapidly weakening. Suggesting the Host to remove the divine soul and transplant it to another. It is also recommended that the host use bone plants for the carrier since it can help nurture divine souls.”
Zhao Hai stared, then he exploded with happiness. He never knew what the bone plants were used for. When the Space was still level 250, he wanted to use the scanner to analyze what bone plants were. However, the Space just told him that its level was still low. But now, the Space took the initiative to tell him to use bone plants for the carrier since it can nourish divine souls. This made Zhao Hai happy. He immediately combined bone plants onto liquid silver. After that, he took out the divine soul from the spear and transplanted it onto Liquid Silver.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t expect it to fail. While he was stunned, the Space issued another prompt, “Because Liquid Silver is used by the host, divine souls cannot be added. Please look for another carrier.”
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but knit his brows. He immediately decomposed the silver, gaining two new resources for the Space. After that, Zhao Hai used the method to refine spirit snake needles in order to recreate the spear. He also added bone plants to the newly made spear. After that, he transplanted the divine soul into the spear. The divine soul melted into the spear. Zhao Hai even felt the divine soul transmitting a happy emotion.
At this time, the corpse of an Immortal Expert was sent to the Space. Once the corpse turned into an Undead, Zhao Hai asked, “Where are you from?”
The Undead bowed its head and said, “Replying to the Young master. I am from the Ghost Spirit Realm. I was ordered this time to kill the Young Master.”
Zhao Hai knit his brows as he said, “Ghost Spirit Realm. Huh. They are really ambitious. To actually be the first to cause trouble. Hmph. I’ll find time to deal with them. What are your cultivation methods? Maybe I can teach the children new skills. Go back and write it.” The Immortal undead bowed and then drew back.
Zhao Hai knew what cultivation methods the Ghost Spirit Realm practiced. They belonged to the evil faction among cultivators. Moreover, they were quite strong. However, this person must be specially chosen. Cultivators from the Ghost Spirit Realm normally used ghosts or zombies to fight. However, this person was instead using a spear. This should be intended to hide his origin.
Zhao Hai wanted the Ghost Spirit Realm’s methods because several of the children had the yin attribute. They should be suitable to study evil cultivation methods. Because the evil cultivation methods that Zhao Hai collected before weren’t advanced, he wasn’t able to teach advanced-level evil cultivation methods to the children. He just laid a foundation for them. His original plan was to kill some evil sect masters and get their cultivation methods. But now, that seems unnecessary since someone personally delivered the cultivation methods to him.
After dealing with the matters inside the Space, Zhao Hai returned to the Hell King’s Ship. The ship was still moving fast. Laura and the others didn’t return to the Space and just chatted on the top deck.
Seeing Zhao Hai arrive, Cai’er said, “Young Master, now that we know how to use bone plants, should we make something?”
Zhao Hai raised his brows and said, “What do we make?”
Cai’er smiled and said, “Young Master, how can you forget? Inside the Hell Space, soul fires are produced every time. Aren’t soul fires like divine souls? It’s only because they are inferior that they are weaker than skeletons. They also have no wisdom. But if we can use bone plants, we can nourish these soul fires. Once they gain sentience, we can obtain large quantities of soul weapons that aren’t weak.”
Hearing Cai’er, Zhao Hai stared, then he nodded and said, “We can do that. Alright, let’s follow your plan. However, we need to experiment first to see if this method can be used. We also need to see if we can mass produce it. I still want to see what kind weapons we can use for this method.”
Cai’er nodded and said, “Rest assured, I’ll take care of it.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he said, “How are the children doing?”
Cai’er smiled and said, “The children are currently talking about the battle. They are still very weak, so they have a lot of things they couldn’t understand. And even if we tell them, they wouldn’t be able to comprehend it. There’s nothing to worry about them.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he said, “We don’t have much time left. We need to speed up a bit. There’s no need to be dragged by these people. When I come back from the sea, I will clean up the Ghost Spirit Realm. To actually dare move against me. They will regret it.”
Laura and the others agreed. Laura replied, “The Ghost Spirit Realm is good at using ghosts and zombies to fight. They came to us probably because they’re curious about Brother Hai’s Undead controlling method. Brother Hai, although you didn’t release strong Undead, their sheer number definitely made those fellows jealous.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he said, “We’ll take care of this once we return from the sea. What’s important right now was to see how big the sea really is.”
- Spear and gun/rifle have the same character in chinese, which explains the statement.
