BTFTLIAW – Chapter 1620


Chapter 1620 – Hundred and Twenty-Face Spiritual Crystal

The proof that Zhao Hai handed over was his Guest Seat Elder token. Seeing the token, the Severed Soul Expert was startled. He no longer dared to delay as he quickly handed the token back to Zhao Hai and said, “Elder, please come with me.”

There’s a reason for the sudden politeness of the Severed Soul Expert. In the Divergent Realm, the position of an Elder was very high. Although Guest Seat Elders didn’t hold too much power in the realm, their position was still very high. And with Zhao Hai being Prisonheart’s disciple, even if someone wasn’t fond of him, they still wouldn’t dare offend him. They all knew clearly how unlucky they would be if they offended Zhao Hai.

Although he embarrassed Zhao Hai, what the person did was also a rule of the Divergent Realm. He was just acting according to the law.

Zhao Hai didn’t mind the person’s response. He smiled and received the token before walking out with the Severed Soul Expert. The Divergent Realm’s headquarters was on a platform on a summit. There were various structures everywhere. The Divergent Realm’s transmission formation was in the center of this platform.

The Severed Soul Expert led Zhao Hai out of the transmission formation square and then they flew up. Zhao Hai calmly followed behind as they flew past various buildings.

Before long, the two got out of the platform and out of the mountain. They didn’t fly far before they came upon a valley. The valley was very beautiful and there was a small creek flowing through it.

When they reached the valley outside, the person leading Zhao Hai said, “This is the valley Elder Prisonheart lives in. We don’t have the authority to enter. I can only lead you here.”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Thank you.” Then he turned his head to the valley and said, “Zhao Hai pays Master a visit.”

The voice of Prisonheart was immediately heard, “It’s Little Hai, come in, come in.” Zhao Hai nodded then flew towards the valley. The Severed Soul Expert looked at Zhao Hai and sighed before leaving.

The valley was as beautiful as a painting. There were plenty of stimulating flowers and calming grass inside. The stimulating flowers and calming grass were clearly well-taken care of. Most importantly, Zhao Hai could feel something special from these stimulating flowers and calming grass.

Combined together, the stimulating flowers and calming grass smelled very good. Moreover, they calmed one’s mind. They provide great benefits to cultivation.

A small creek flowed through the valley looking like a jade belt, giving the valley a more vibrant aura. Next to the creek was a small thatch-roofed house. The house wasn’t huge. It was built to fit in with the environment.

Zhao Hai moved around the thatch-roofed house and stood in front of the door. Then Prisonheart’s voice was heard, “Little Hai, come in.” Zhao Hai nodded and then stepped inside the hut.

The thatch-roofed hut was truly small. The interior was around 40 square meters. It was completely empty, devoid of anything but the transforming clouds in the middle. Sitting in the middle was Prisonheart who had his eyes closed.

Zhao Hai stepped forward and then gave a salute, “I have seen Master.”

Prisonheart nodded and said, “Sit down and try to practice. If there’s something you don’t know, come and ask me.” Zhao Hai nodded and then took out a clump of clouds and then sat down.

Seeing Zhao Hai sitting down to practice, Prisonheart nodded and then closed his eyes once more.

Zhao Hai didn’t mind Prisonheart’s actions. Zhao Hai had his guard up all the time. It wouldn’t be easy to make a move on him.

Although Zhao Hai seems to be practicing, he was actually using his mind to pay attention to Mu Yu and the others through the Space.

Mu Yu and the others had already gone to Halfbeast Island and watched over it. Naturally, they had a minimal level of control. For so many years, the Divergent Realm failed to make Halfbeast Island submit. At this time, the Hundred Treasures Realm only owned the island in name.

In order to deal with the inhabitants of Halfbeast Island, Zhao Hai lent Mu Yu his Hell King’s Ship as well as a number of sword shuttles. In this case, everything that happened on the island was well-known by Zhao Hai.

Zhao Hai also had some prior understanding about the island. It was inhabited by countless beasts. Each of these beasts were unruly and difficult to subdue. Moreover, these beasts weren’t weak at all. And even if they were weak, they would go all out and sacrifice their lives when pushed into a corner. When dealing with outsiders, the beasts would be united. Because of this, the Divergent Realm weren’t able to do much with the island.

Of course, the fact that the Divergent Realm wasn’t able to subdue Halfbeast Island was somewhat related to the Hundred Treasures Realm. Since the Hundred Treasures Realm had long wanted to get ahold of Halfbeast Island, they supported a few beast races in order to fight the Divergent Realm. This way, the Divergent Realm would be unable to gain complete control over the island.

Because of this, the Hundred Treasures Realm was able to foster some relationships with the inhabitants of the island. But at the same time, the Hundred Treasures Realm knew that friendship with the beasts of the island was different from making them submit to the Hundred Treasures Realm.

The beasts of the island were very defensive against outsiders. Those who weren’t their kind were expelled. Even if they had some relationship with the Hundred Treasures Realm, they were still vigilant. This became an issue now that the jurisdiction of Halfbeast Island was transferred to the Hundred Treasures Realm.

For the beasts in Halfbeast Island, the island should belong to them. Any human who wants to rule the island would be their enemy. This applied to the Divergent Realm, and now it also applied to the Hundred Treasures Realm.

Because of this, if they wanted to take control of the island, the Hundred Treasures Realm would need to work hard. It was also because of this that Mu Yu asked to borrow Zhao Hai’s Hell King’s Ship and some sword shuttles.

As Zhao Hai was observing Halfbeast Island, Prisonheart slowly opened his eyes. He looked at Zhao Hai before standing up and walking out.

Laura and the others immediately told Zhao Hai that Prisonheart had gotten up. Zhao Hai returned his attention back and also opened his eyes before going outside.

Prisonheart stood in front of the thatch-roofed hut, looking at the stimulating flowers and calming grass in the valley. Hearing Zhao Hai come out, he didn’t turn his head but instead said, “I have lived in this valley for nearly thousands of years. All this time, this valley always had the air of spring. It’s most suitable for growing calming plants and stimulating flowers. The fragrance of these plants, when mixed together, is very beneficial to cultivators. Not only can they allow someone to cultivate faster, they also prevent people from being invaded by demons.”

Zhao Hai continued to be silent as he stood behind Prisonheart. He didn’t understand why Prisonheart was saying these things to him. Prisonheart turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, your spiritual force is higher than average people. Practice here in the next few days. Have your spiritual crystal develop 120 faces as soon as possible.”

Zhao Hai bowed and said, “Yes, Master. I will train hard.” Prisonheart nodded. Then he turned back to the stimulating flowers and calming grass in the valley and said, “In the past, just as I reached 120 faces, I entered a battle that left my spirit injured. Later on, using the calming grass and stimulating flowers of this valley, I was able to heal myself. However, although I could still increase my spiritual force, my internal injury was still there. This internal injury became the biggest obstacle in my progress.”

Zhao Hai continued to listen. He didn’t expect Prisonheart to be injured in the Immortal Stage. Moreover, it was an injury that persisted until now.

Prisonheart sighed and said, “Little Hai, you’re still young. Moreover, you’re talented. As long as you practice diligently, you will reach the Immortal Stage sooner or later. Moreover, from what I can see, that day wouldn’t be far. But you must remember that the Immortal Stage isn’t the peak of cultivation. After the Immortal Stage, there are other more powerful stages. Because of my internal injury, I can no longer reach those stages, but you still can. But when that time comes, I’m afraid I will no longer be here.”

Zhao Hai had no choice but to comfort his master, “Master, as long as you take proper rest. Then you shouldn’t suffer any problems.”

Prisonheart shook his head and said, “I know the most about my current state. At most, I only have two years left. If I see you condensing 120 faces in your crystal, then I will die relieved.”

Zhao Hai quickly replied, “Master..” Without waiting for him to continue, Prisonheart waved his hand and said, “There’s no need to say more. Although cultivators strive to go against the heavens, sometimes we have to succumb to fate. I have completely spent my lifespan. There’s no need to worry so much, just cultivate properly.”

Zhao Hai lowered his head and said, “Yes Master.”

Prisonheart waved his hand and said, “Go practice. There’s no need to think about me. I’m already stuck with my cultivation. However, you are different. You need to practice well. I hope that you can reach 120 faces soon.” Zhao Hai nodded before he returned to the thatch-roofed hut and sat on the transforming clouds. Then he shifted his attention to the Space.

To be honest, Zhao Hai was touched by Prisonheart’s words. He almost told Prisonheart that he already reached 120 faces in his spiritual crystal. And currently, his spiritual crystal has reached 360 faces. Although it hasn’t increased anymore, he was becoming more and more proficient in using the crystal.

But in the end, Zhao Hai didn’t tell the truth. He doesn’t like other people knowing his secrets. Therefore, he was prepared to tell Prisonheart that he reached 120 faces only after some time. In any case, he had nothing else to do in the meantime other than staying in the hut. He couldn’t physically go to the Space and could only use his spiritual force to observe Mu Yu and the others through the Space.
