Chapter 1539 – Impeachment
After dealing with the black dragon, Zhao Hai had nothing else to do. At this time, he was looking at the monitor observing the children. The children were now being taught by the Undead teachers. They were currently replaying the fight between Zhao Hai and the black dragon. The children exclaimed at every move, they looked quite adorable.
Zhao Hai liked these children very much. The same was true for Laura and the others. Zhao Hai actually felt strange about this situation. He had been with Laura and the others for quite some time. However, they had yet to bear children. It was confusing to Zhao Hai and his wives.
The Space provided them with very healthy bodies. It shouldn’t have been a problem for them to have any children. And strangely, they didn’t become pregnant.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t care much about this. In any case, Laura and the others were now strong cultivators. Their lifespans were very long. They could worry about this later on.
At this time, Cai’er looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Young master, take a look at this. Xiang Bo was outside for quite some time. He didn’t do anything else and just walked back and forth. It seems like he is thinking about something.”
Zhao Hai stared, then he nodded and said, “I’ll go take a look.” His body disappeared and returned to the Hell King’s Ship. He opened the door and went outside.
Xiang Bo was still walking back and forth thinking about how to make friends with Zhao Hai. Because of this, he had yet to return to his room.
Zhao Hai looked at Xiang Bo and asked, “Xiang Bo, did something happen? What’s wrong?”
Xiang Bo couldn’t help but jump upon hearing Zhao Hai’s voice. Normally, he would notice if someone was getting close to him. But this time, he failed to notice Zhao Hai.
Xiang Bo was also too focused on thinking that he didn’t notice Zhao Hai’s arrival. Upon seeing Zhao Hai, he was somewhat embarrassed. He smiled faintly and said, “Mister, it’s you. I just came here because I have nothing to do. Why did Mister come out? Is something wrong?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “Everything’s alright. There’s no need to worry.”
Xiang Bo sighed and said, “Mister, you mentioned it before. But after we head back, how do you think they would reward us?”
Zhao Hai stared, then he shook his head and said, “I really don’t know. However, our contribution would certainly be big. They shouldn’t reward us poorly.”
Xiang Bo looked at Zhao Hai and bitterly smiled, “Mister, you can fight against Immortal Experts. Also, you have Mu Yu behind you. If you want, you can choose to not participate in the expedition. Why did you come?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “If I don’t want to come, then of course I can choose not to go. In fact, before Elder Mu retired, he told me that Elder Shen might deal with me. Therefore, he told me to go into a closed door retreat. I can just go out in the future when the expedition is sent over. However, I didn’t agree. This is because I want to explore the sea. Although Elder Shen was the one who gave me this task, it was me who chose to go.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Xiang Bo sighed and said, “So it’s like that, no wonder. Talking about it, it’s good to have people watching your back. As for us, we’re dispensable people in our realms or have offended someone high up. This is why we’re assigned to this task. If not for you, we wouldn’t be able to survive.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “That no longer matters. Once we go back and receive our reward, you can rest assured that sooner or later you will also become Immortal Experts.”
Xiang Bo forced a smile and said, “That’s easier said than done. Although we made a huge contribution, we have nobody above us. We would still have a hard time getting good things. Alright, let’s no longer talk about this.”
Zhao Hai looked at Xiang Bo and smiled as he said, “Cultivation is never easy for anyone. You have also gone through multiple hardships to reach where to currently are. Don’t think about it too much. A cultivator can only move forward if they are alive. If you stagnate, then you will move backwards. When the time comes, you are doomed to fail. Meeting each other in this expedition is fate. From now on, we are friends. You can come to me if you need any help.”
Xiang Bo, who was racking his brain thinking about how to befriend Zhao Hai, was stunned when he heard this. The reason he said those things to Zhao Hai was because he had nothing else to tell. He wanted to open a topic so that he can establish rapport with Zhao Hai.
However, Xiang Bo didn’t hold much hope at the time. After all, Zhao Hai had a great status. He might say a few things to Zhao Hai that would cause him to leave. But contrary to what he expected, not only did Zhao Hai stay, he also said that they were friends. This was definitely a surprise.
Xiang Bo recovered and then immediately said, “Mister’s words are too polite for someone like me. Meeting you is already a great achievement to me.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It’s not too polite. I used to be an ascender. Even in the World of Cultivation, there aren’t a lot of people who want to meet me. Haha. Here, this is a gift for you.” After he said that, Zhao Hai flipped his hand and took out a jade box containing a thousand-year old blood ginseng.
Blood ginseng was very precious for cultivation. Not only could it help in cultivation, it also had excellent healing properties. This was especially true regarding very old blood gineng. Even in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, it was very difficult to find a 1000-year old blood ginseng.
But for Zhao Hai, these things were nothing that great. He can get as many as he wants inside the Space. He can get a 100 year old ginseng and then accelerate its growth to a thousand years. Not to mention 1,000-year old ginseng, the Space has several 10,000-year old blood ginseng.
Xiang Bo received the jade box and saw a huge human-shaped blood ginseng inside. Xiang Bo’s complexion couldn’t help but change. He hastily closed the jade box and said, “Mister, I cannot accept this. This is too precious.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It’s fine. Just accept it. This thing is useless to me. Go and take a rest. Don’t forget to reach out to me if you ever need help in the future.”
Xiang Bo gratefully looked at Zhao Hai. He nodded and carefully stored the jade box. Then he turned around and left. Looking at Xiang Bo, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile.
Although he didn’t know that Xiang Bo wanted to befriend him, he still wanted to become friends with Xiang Bo. He has a plan for the future, and befriending Xiang Bo was the start.
As he stood on the deck of the Hell King’s Ship, looking at the dark clouds being cut apart, Zhao Hai let out a long breath before he murmured, “Even as a chess piece, I will be a chess piece that cannot be easily manipulated.”
After he said that, Zhao Hai took another look around. Now, the ship has been covered by the dark clouds. He couldn’t see anything at all. And because he understood these dark clouds very well, Zhao Hai knew that his spiritual force couldn’t go far. These dark clouds had a strong suppressive effect against the spiritual force of cultivators.
Zhao Hai let out a long breath. This sea wasn’t easy to search. His current spiritual force wasn’t any less than Immortal Experts. But since he arrived here, he couldn’t detect much of the surroundings. Immortal Experts would have the same experience, maybe even worse. This was because Zhao Hai wasn’t being affected by the dark clouds, which was something the other Immortal Experts didn’t have.
Zhao Hai sighed and then returned to the cabins before going to the Space. Laura and the others were currently sitting on the sofa and looking at the monitor. The screen showed Xiang Bo and the others. Xiang Bo was now sitting inside his room holding the jade box that Zhao Hai gave him. He stared at the blood ginseng for a long time before he received it once more. Then he sat in place blankly, thinking about something.
The others were sitting cross-legged in meditation. There wasn’t much to see, so Laura and the others changed the display to the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters.
When the headquarters was shown, Zhao Hai and the others were stunned. This was because they saw someone there, it was Mu Yao!
Zhao Hai stared. Mu Yao should be in retreat right now. Why did he come out again? Mu Yao was also followed by a lot of people. These people were Severed Soul Experts and Transcending Tribulation Experts of the Hundred Treasures Realm. In addition to these people, there were also at least 50 Immortal Experts. Opposite Mu Yao were Shen Wei as well as the Immortal Experts who were with him.
Seeing this, Zhao Hai understood the situation. It seems like Mu Yao was about to impeach Shen Wei. Shen Wei’s actions were very unfair, causing dissatisfaction among the cultivators of the Hundred Treasures Realm. Mu Yao was also waiting for an opportunity, and it has come to reveal itself. However, Zhao Hai knew that he wasn’t enough to be a reason. So what opportunity did Mu Yao see to allow him to attempt an impeachment?
Adjusting the display, Zhao Hai finally knew. It turns out that Shen Wei punished the experts who spoke on behalf of Zhao Hai in the past few days. This caused everyone to be dissatisfied. It must be known that although the Elders of the Hundred Treasures Realm held great power, they couldn’t just punish people that easily. They needed to be fair otherwise people would rise up and impeach them.
Although Shen Wei had only been in control for a short time, his suppression of the Mu Faction has become so blatant that it began to displease other people. After all, the Giant Spirit Realm and the Fireweavers’ defeat was caused by the leadership of the Mu Faction. The Mu Faction’s prestige in the Hundred Treasures Realm was at an all-time high. It’s no wonder that Shen Wei’s removal of the Mu Faction’s people from important positions managed to anger people.
Additionally, there was Shen Wei’s move to embarrass Zhao Hai and then his action against the dissatisfied Severed Soul Experts. The anger that accumulated finally exploded. This allowed Mu Yao to group everyone to impeach Shen Wei.
