Chapter 1583 – Next Action
White light flashed as three figures appeared on the temporary transmission formation. The two people guarding the transmission formation immediately stood up and turned towards the light.
When the white light vanished, what the two saw was Zhao Hai and the others. One of the two people were Zong Ze, and naturally the other was Mu Yao. The most powerful Elders of the Hundred Treasures Realm were now guarding a transmission formation.
Seeing Zhao Hai and the others arrive, the two immediately went forward to meet them. They carefully inspected Zhao Hai and Mu Yu. They were calm and didn’t seem to be injured. Then the two turned to Tang Yaoen.
Seeing Mu Yao and Zong Ze looking at him, Tang Yaoen couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “What? Surprised? There’s no need to look. We won. We won!”
Mu Yao and Zong Ze didn’t respond. Mu Yao just muttered, “We won.. We won… We won? Did you just say that we won?”
Seeing Mu Yao’s dumbfounded appearance, Tang Yaoen couldn’t help but laugh. He shook Mu Yao’s shoulder and repeated, “Senior Brother, we won!”
Mu Yao and Zong Ze’s faces showed disbelief. They just stared at Tang Yaoen who smiled and said, “Let’s go. Let’s head back. We really won.”
Before long, the group were near the conference hall. Since the affairs of the Sky Tower needed to be kept secret, nobody in the Hundred Treasures Realm knew what Mu Yu and Zhao Hai did. Naturally, nobody dared to inquire. Nevertheless, the two were very popular in the Hundred Treasures Realm. So when they met cultivators on the way, they all greeted the two with a smile while giving a salute to the three Elders.
Zhao Hai and Mu Yu returned the greeting to these people along with a smile as they followed the elders to the conference hall. Tang Yaoen’s happy mood was very obvious. He would often give a nod to a cultivator that gave him a salute, leaving those who greeted him feeling flattered.
It must be known that Tang Yaoen, Mu Yao, and Zong Ze were popular Elders of the Hundred Treasures Realm. It can be said that the three of them were the most respected Elders of the realm. This had nothing to do with their strength, but because of their accomplishments. There’s nothing to say about Mu Yao. Under his leadership, the Hundred Treasures Realm were able to finally defeat the Giant Spirit Realm. Ordinary cultivators of the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t know about the Sky Tower, only the fact that they had a deep grudge with the Giant Spirit Realm. Now that the Giant Spirit Realm has been destroyed, the cultivators were naturally happy. And in the process, Mu Yao gained the respect of everyone.
Tang Yaoen was Mu Yao’s right-hand man. Everyone knew this. Therefore, some of the merit also went into Tang Yaoen’s name.
Zong Ze was able to increase his prestige in the past two years. He led the realm to destroy the Ghost Spirit Realm and open up new territory for the Hundred Treasures Realm. Naturally, his popularity in the realm wasn’t low.
These three Elders in addition to Zhao Hai and Mu Yu, it can be said that it was a well-renowned group in the Hundred Treasures Realm. No matter who they meet, they would always be greeted with glee.
The five entered the conference hall. The moment they sat down, Mu Yao didn’t hesitate as he turned to Tang Yaoen and said, “Yaoen, what happened. Tell me everything.”
Tang Yaoen laughed then told the other two Elders what happened. Hearing Tang Yaoen, Mu Yao and Zong Ze were speechless. They just looked at Zhao Hai, his image in their minds had somewhat changed.
After some time, Mu Yao let out a long breath. Then he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, good job. You’ve done more than I expected. You did well.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Actually, Brother Mu isn’t inferior to those people in terms of cultivation. It’s only because of their Faith Power that Brother Mu was unable to defeat them.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yao couldn’t help but pause. Then his expression changed as he looked at Tang Yaoen and said, “Yaoen, is this real? Did the people of the Sky Tower really use Faith Power?”
The smile on Tang Yaoen’s face faded, then he nodded and said, “There’s no mistake, it’s Faith Power. All floor guardians were using Faith Power. What Little Hai said is true.”
Zong Ze knit his brows and said, “Faith Power? Where did they get that much Faith Power? The Sky Tower is indeed mysterious. To be able to use Faith Power. It seems like their background isn’t so simple.”
Mu Yao nodded, he turned his head to Tang Yaoen and said, “Yaoen, now that we won, what rewards did the Sky Tower give us?”
Hearing Mu Yao, Tang Yaoen couldn’t help but smile as he answered, “The Sky Tower promises us that they wouldn’t interfere with the Hundred Treasures Realm in the future for 500 years. In this period, the Sky Tower also won’t bet with us nor involve us with any bets with other realms.”
Mu Yao and Zong Ze shook when they heard this. This was the best news they need to hear right now. Ordinary cultivators might not know, but how could Mu Yao and Zong Ze be ignorant about the strength of the Sky Tower? The Sky Tower was like a sword hanging above the heads of all high-grade realms in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Every time they made a move, they would have to worry about the Sky Tower.
But now that the Sky Tower itself declared that they wouldn’t meddle with the Hundred Treasures Realm and even wouldn’t bet with them for 500 years, the Hundred Treasures Realm would have no problems developing in the future.
However, the two were quickly able to regain their calm. Mu Yao hesitated for a moment before he said, “Although the Sky Tower said this, we cannot be complacent. We are still weak compared to the Five Great Realms. Not to mention the Sky Tower, if one of the Five Great Realms focuses on us, there’s nothing we can do. We still have to follow our previous plan and not be anxious.”
Zong Ze nodded and said, “The next step I plan to do is to send troops to the Cloudsea Territory in an expedition. Naturally, this is just to send people to the Hidden Cloud Village. Now that our progress has attracted the attention of the other high-grade realms, we have to make an appearance and let them think that we lost more people. What do you think?”
Mu Yao understood Zong Ze’s plan, so he nodded and said, “That’s a good plan. When the time comes, we can bring back another set of coordinates and then bait them in once more.”
Zong Ze turned to Zhao Hai as he smiled and said, “We’ll have to depend on you once more, Little Hai. We need your large artifact and lead people to the Cloudsea Territory. What do you think?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “There’s no problem. I can bring everyone to the Hidden Cloud Village. As for coordinates, I can bring back a few. At the same time, I’ll bring back cloud beasts and a few people from the Cloudsea Territory. I believe those other fellows wouldn’t be able to sit still when the time comes.”
Although there were hidden transmission formations in Ye Island, it was still inside the island. After the last incident, Ye Island was constantly monitored by the people of the Cloudsea Territory. If the people of the battlefield used these transmission formations once more, then they would no doubt face another hard fight.
But if Zhao Hai brought back coordinates to other whitecloud islands, these high-grade realms would certainly come over and beg for them.
Moreover, Zhao Hai was prepared to bring back Cloudsea Territory cultivators, cloud beasts, as well as other commodities of the territory. Once they see the benefits of the Hundred Treasures Realm, it would be strange if the other high-grade weren’t envious.
Naturally, losses couldn’t be avoided, but this wasn’t important. Last time when the high-grade realms attacked the Cloudsea Territory, they weren’t able to get any good things. Although they were able to bring back white clouds, these white clouds couldn’t exist in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield for a long time. The white clouds had already dissipated. The only things that remained were the cloud herbs and cloud rice. Besides those cloud plants, the high-grade realms weren’t able to get anything from the Cloudsea Territory.
For those high-grade realms, this was a huge loss of face. They had been constantly thinking of revenge. But they were also aware that attacking the Cloudsea Territory at this time wasn’t a good idea. Therefore, they can only wait.
If at this time the Hundred Treasures Realm sent an expedition into the Cloudsea Territory and managed to get some benefits, although they knew that they would lose more people, these high-grade realms still wouldn’t be able to sit still.
Most importantly, Zhao Hai didn’t include the transforming clouds in his previous report. As long as Zhao Hai brought back a large number of these useful transforming clouds as well as reveal that these clouds could improve the success rate of refining artifacts, the high-grade realms would surely go crazy.
Zhao Hai could also disclose the benefits of cloud beasts to these high-grade realms. It would be weird if they didn’t explode from excitement when the time comes.
The group discussed their plan in detail before Zhao Hai and Mu Yu asked to leave. When the two of them left, Mu Yao turned to Tang Yaoen and said, “Yaoen, is Little Hai really that strong?”
Tang Yaoen nodded and said, “Very strong. He has a lot of methods. Moreover, he has Faith Power. It really opened my eyes how Faith Power is important to cultivators, both in offense and defense. With his Faith Power as well as his transforming artifact, Little Hai was able to win the bet for us.”
Mu Yao nodded, “This win is very good for us. This matter cannot be spread out. Otherwise the people of the Sky Tower might get angry at us for embarrassing them.”
Tang Yaoen nodded and said, “Don’t worry, we’ve already been reminded by Luo Ying. To be honest, if it weren’t for Little Hai, Little Yu would be in danger.”
Mu Yao nodded, “Little Hai’s achievements might have already surpassed Little Yu’s. We should make sure to protect him. After his trip to the Cloudsea Territory, we need to make Little Hai take a vacation.” Tang Yaoen and Zong Ze nodded.
When Zhao Hai returned to the Space, he immediately went to Cai’er and asked, “Cai’er, did you discover anything? Where did Luo Ying go?”
Cai’er shook her head and said, “I wasn’t able to get anything. After you left, Luo Ying went to the Sky Tower’s sixth floor and then sent a jade sword message. Then he didn’t do anything after that. I wanted to send silver needles to explore the Sky Tower, but I discovered that the tower is heavily guarded with defensive and alarm formations. If we sent silver needles to the upper floors, the people of the tower would immediately discover them. This would be bad for the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
