Chapter 1629 – Cold-blooded
The Immortal Experts of the Hundred Treasures Realm were more sensitive when it came to strength compared to those in the Severed Soul Stage. Although Zhao Hai seems to be in the Severed Soul Stage, the Immortal Experts were sure that Zhao Hai’s real strength has reached the Immortal Stage. Adding Zhao Hai’s large artifacts, the Immortal Experts reckoned that if they went against him, it would be them who would be slaughtered
But what surprised them the most was Zhao Hai’s turtle. These people were Elder-level personages in the Hundred Treasures Realm, so they have some idea of Zhao Hai’s matters. They knew that the turtle was a beast that Zhao Hai captured in the sea of clouds. Then afterwards he equipped it with full armor. To be honest, they didn’t believe that the turtle was strong, but now their eyes had been opened.
They just saw the turtle take action. A transformed Lion Race Immortal Expert failed to cause any damage to it. And in just one attack from the turtle, the Lion Expert died. This kind of strength was terrifying.
The battle was still going on, but everyone knew that the Lions were finished. Even if the high-grade realms collectively made a move, it was still impossible to save the Lions. Although the Lion Race were still fighting, it was no more than to buy time for them to be able to find a way of escape. This was because they discovered that the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t capture people nor accept surrender.
The Lions who tried to surrender were killed. This was the reason why the Lions were still resisting, because if they didn’t they would only die quicker.
The Immortal Experts were shaken by Zhao Hai’s approach. They were really intending to kill every enemy. It was hard to say if the Lion Race would still exist from this point on.
Ruthless and cold-blooded, this was the impression Zhao Hai gave to the Immortal Experts. Originally, they saw Zhao Hai as a moderate and calm person. He always had a smile on his face and was friendly to everyone. Although he was ruthless to his enemies, these Immortal Experts saw it as normal. After all, who would be polite to their enemies?
But this time, they saw Zhao Hai’s cold-blooded side. Ruthless could no longer describe him. A ruthless person wasn’t necessarily a cold-blooded one. Even ruthless people wouldn’t act against people who had given up.
Zhao Hai, in order to establish prestige and make the Beast Races submit, chose to not spare even those who surrendered. Naturally, this wasn’t the most important. What’s important was the fact that he also sent people to the den of the Lion Race. He was going to uproot the entire Lion Race. Not a lot of people would use this method.
Moreover, the Immortal Experts who attacked the Lions den were already instructed by Zhao Hai to leave nobody alive. This was the most cold-blooded performance that Zhao Hai has shown to these Immortal Experts.
Any race couldn’t exist without children. Moreover, childhood was a person’s most vulnerable time. Even if you’re an invincible expert, you were still a child in the past, a child that can easily be slain by another expert.
But Zhao Hai’s order didn’t even spare the children. He made sure to the Immortal Experts to not spare anyone.
To be honest, when the Immortal Experts heard this, their backs couldn’t help but feel cold. In the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, even if two races battle and have a huge enmity with each other, they would still settle their grudges in the battlefield. The most they could go for was expelling the other side from the battlefield.
Naturally, Halfbeast Island was somewhat unusual. They were a united group of people that came from the same realm. If Zhao Hai wasn’t cold-blooded, then the Lion Race could always re-emerge and become a constant headache. Even so, the Immortal Experts still thought that Zhao Hai’s methods were going too far.
No matter what these Immortal Experts were thinking about, the battle in the Lion Race headquarters was coming to an end. Everyone from the Hundred Treasures Realm has participated in the slaughter of the Lion Race and the reinforcements sent by the other realms.
Originally, the experts of the Hundred Treasures Realm were afraid that these people would run. But when they looked outside the headquarters, they immediately discovered that it had been completely surrounded. Let alone a person, even a mosquito wouldn’t be able to fly away.
Seeing this, the Immortal Experts couldn’t help but sigh. Zhao Hai’s plans were both prudent and meticulous. At the same time, they were lamenting Zhao Hai’s desire for extermination.
The battle took six hours altogether. All of the non-Hundred Treasures Realm cultivators in the Lion Race Headquarters were killed and turned into Undead.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and received all of the Undead. The sword shuttles were also taken back. At this moment, white light flashed on the Hell King’s Ship as the cultivators who attacked the Lion Race’s land returned batch by batch.
The expressions of these cultivators weren’t pleasant. But that was the end of it. After all, these were Immortal Experts. The Lion Race simply weren’t able to injure them.
The reason they had ugly expressions was Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai sent large quantities of Undead in order to attack and clean up the Lion Race den.
There’s no mistake, it was cleaning up. This was the word that these Immortal Experts found appropriate. The Undead didn’t distinguish between the elderly or the children. In the Lion Race den, as long as they were living, the Undead killed them all.
Looking at the massacre these Undead incurred, the Immortal Experts felt a chill. Their backs turned cold. They didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be so cruel.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about what they felt. He didn’t revive those in the Lion Race den into Undead. They were too weak that they wouldn’t be of much use for the Space. At the same time, their image would serve as a warning to the enemies.
After everyone arrived at the Lion Race headquarters, Zhao Hai looked at the Immortal Experts and then smiled as he said, “Elders, welcome back. You can take a rest at the Hell King’s Ship.”
Looking at Zhao Hai’s temperate smile, the Immortal Experts felt their hearts turn cold. They saw a lot of killing in their lives as well as people unaffected by the killin.g However, this was the first time seeing someone still smiling after exterminating an entire race.
The Immortal Experts didn’t want to linger around Zhao Hai so they immediately returned to the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters through the transmission formation of the Hell King’s Ship. In any case, their duty in Halfbeast Island was already finished.
After sending the Elders away Zhao Hai and Mu Yu took the other cultivators and left the Lion Race headquarters. They believed that the other races would soon know about what happened to the Lion Race. Then the Beast Races would take the initiative to meet them. If they don’t, then Zhao Hai can just send them an ultimatum. He doesn’t believe that they wouldn’t come by then.
Speaking of which, the Hundred Treasures Realm also have their own camp in Halfbeast Island. This camp was the one left behind by the Divergent Realm. However, it was more appropriate to call it an outpost than a camp. There were minimal defenses and residences in the camp. It was clear that the Divergent Realm didn’t maintain it very well.
It was also for this reason that Mu Yu and the others stayed in the Hell King’s Ship for their entire stay in the island. It was also because of the Hell King’s Ship that the beast races weren’t able to cause heavy losses to them.
Mu Yu and Zhao Hai were currently standing on the Hell King’s Ship’s deck. The ship was flying at a leisurely pace. Nobody would expect that they had just returned from a battle.
Mu Yu turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, when do you think the other Beast Races would come to us?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I think they will be here soon. The first to approach us should be the Fox Race. They’re truly foxes, they’re shrewd. The message Hu Quan sent us wasn’t only to remind us, but also to express his dissatisfaction with the Lion Race. He didn’t want to give the Lion Race a chance to deal with them. He was betting for the future where we would win. And he bet correctly. In the future, he will become the most faithful subordinate of the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Mu Yu smiled faintly and said, “Halfbeast Island will be under our control. After what just happened, I believe none of the Beast Races would dare rebel.”
Zhao Hai laughed, “They can hate us all they want. In the end, this will save us a lot of trouble. Dead people are better than disloyal subordinates.”
Mu Yu patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder and said, “But from now on, you will be known as a cold-blooded killer. I’m afraid this will spread soon. Did you see how the Immortal Experts look at you? I can even see a trace of fear in their eyes.”
Zhao Hai chuckled and said, “Isn’t that good? It makes them afraid to do anything to me.”
Mu Yu sighed. He felt that he was being unfair to Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai’s action essentially killed his good reputation. Zhao Hai saved Mu Yu from staining his hands with blood.
Although it was imposing for people to be afraid of you, it doesn’t change the fact that people would feel fear facing you. This will make it harder to make any friends later on. A lot of cultivators couldn’t bear ruining their reputation. Even demonic cultivators wouldn’t want such a reputation.
On the other hand, Zhao Hai shouldered this reputation for Mu Yu and the Hundred Treasures Realm. This caused Mu Yu to feel sorry for Zhao Hai. He doesn’t know how to give back. Even the Hundred Treasures Realm had no way to compensate Zhao Hai.
Mu Yu only hopes to reach the Immortal Stage as soon as possible. The earlier he increases his strength, the earlier he can repay Zhao Hai.
