Chapter 1630 – You’re The Alliance Leader

Hu Quan sat in his cave residence holding two jade sword messages in his hand. His face had an expression of fear. And as time passed, his fear increased more and more. By the end, he was sweating.

The two jade sword messages in Hu Quan’s hands were sent by his people. One of them was a report of the Lion Race’s headquarters. The other message was about the Lion Race’s den.

Although there were two messages, their contents were the same. The Lions have been exterminated!

This wasn’t empty talk, the Lion Race was truly extinguished. All Lions in their headquarters in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield have vanished. At the same time, the entire Lion Den was destroyed, everyone was killed. Whether it be children or the elderly, nobody survived. Even the beasts that the Lions raised were killed.

Hu Quan didn’t believe the report at first, he even sent a letter for confirmation. But after receiving an affirmative reply, Hu Quan was terrified.

He couldn’t help but recall the temperate smile on Zhao Hai’s face. His words also didn’t seem serious at that time. Hu Quan thought that Zhao Hai’s ‘visit’ would only involve giving the Lion Race a lesson. He didn’t expect that the Lion Race would be annihilated.

This was an annihilation of a race. The Lion Race had no living survivors. Even if there were, they wouldn’t be able to claim that they were members of the Lion Race. These people would hide deeply. Otherwise, if they were found, the Hundred Treasures Realm wouldn’t let them off.

Cruel, too cruel! The annihilation of a race was never heard of in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. However, Hu Quan was certain that he was the first person to receive this news. This was because he had been at odds with the Lions recently. Ba Silei even said that he would deal with the Fox Race. Hu Quan was afraid that Ba Silei would plot against him, so he was very concerned about their movements.

The jade sword message stated how Zhao Hai dealt with the Lion Race. The Hundred Treasures Realm was very swift, crashing into the Lion Race headquarters. Moreover, there were innumerable Undead surrounding the headquarters. Nobody could see what was going on inside. Once the Undead disappeared, not a single Lion Race cultivator was left. There wasn’t even a corpse that remained.

Hu Quan knew why there were no corpses. This was because Zhao Hai was a Dark Mage. He can turn corpses into Undead. So Hu Quan knew that the Lion Race weren’t only killed, they were also turned into Undead.

Thinking of this, Hu Quan couldn’t help but coldly sweat. After some time, he jumped up and loudly said, “Quickly prepare. We’re going to visit Mister Mu Yu immediately.”

Zhao Hai and Mu Yu were leisurely moving forward. They were on the Hell King’s Ship drinking tea while chatting. Zhao Hai knew that people would be looking for them soon, but he didn’t care. He also saw Hu Quan’s reaction.

Mu Yu drank tea and then sighed before saying, “Little Hai, your tea is really good, better than Cloudfruit Wine. Although Cloudfruit Wine helps you cultivate, this tea can help you improve your spiritual force. It’s very good.”

Zhao Hai chuckled and said, “My cultivation with Master relies heavily on this tea. Thanks to it, I was able to reach minor completion in his technique.”

Mu Yu nodded and said, “No wonder you’re becoming better with your control over your large artifact. Good. But Little Hai, you have to put more effort into your cultivation so that you can reach the Immortal Stage as soon as possible.”

Zhao Hai smiled and said, “It’s still early for me. When it comes to you, it’s good to concentrate on breaking through. You already have a foot inside the door of the Immortal Stage. The earlier you break through, the better it would be for the Hundred Treasures Realm.”

Mu Yu chuckled and said, “We still have Halfbeast Island to take care of. After we’re finished here, I will immediately close up. I believe I will get to the Immortal Stage soon.”

Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Why, will Halfbeast Island help you enter the Immortal Stage? If it helps, then it would be good. Otherwise, there’s no need to be anxious. It’s good to go out and find some trials.”

Mu Yu nodded and said, “The battles have benefited me a lot. I also found that cultivation wouldn’t be able to help me. I should go for some trials.”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Let’s relax first.” After saying that, Zhao Hai turned his head and looked at the distance. There was a group of people approaching from a distance. Mu Yu focused his sight and saw that it was Hu Quan’s group.

Before long, Hu Quan arrived by the Hell King’s Ship. The ship has also stopped. Hu Quan didn’t bring a lot of people, only about a hundred. The group stopped outside the ship as Hu Quan bowed and said, “Hu Quan has seen Mister Mu Yu and Mister Zhao Hai.”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Patriarch Hu, come. Please have a seat.” There was a small table between Zhao Hai and Mu Yu. The two were sitting on transforming clouds on either end of the table, leisurely drinking tea.

Hu Quan looked at Zhao Hai’s smiling face and couldn’t help but feel cold in his heart. He hastily nodded and took a cautious step onto the Hell King’s Ship. Zhao Hai took out a transforming cloud and asked him to sit.

Hu Quan thanked Zhao Hai immediately and then carefully sat on the transforming cloud. Zhao Hai picked up the teapot on the table and poured a cup of tea for Hu Quan. This frightened Hu Quan, he quickly stood up and said, “I won’t dare. Let me do it myself.”

Looking at an Immortal Expert acting like this scared caused Zhao Hai to chuckle as he said, “Patriarch Hu, there’s no need to be anxious. Since you sent us a message, the Hundred Treasures Realm will not treat you unfairly.”

Hu Quan expressed his gratitude as he said, “Mister overpraised. That’s something we should be doing. Although we want to gain autonomy over Halfbeast Island, we never wanted to break away from the Hundred Treasures Realm. I want Misters to see this.”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “The Lions originally weren’t that ambitious. However, some people ignited their pride. These people don’t want the Hundred Treasures Realm to progress. Unfortunately, they chose the wrong opponent. The Lions aren’t qualified to cause trouble for the Hundred Treasures Realm. They chose to side with the high-grade realms. However, the high-grade realms aren’t enough to move us.”

Mu Yu chuckled and said, “They just received help from the high-grade realms, and they start dreaming? Even if they invite all of the high-grade realms, they still wouldn’t be able to cause trouble. Those people underestimate the Hundred Treasures Realm too much.”

Zhao Hai smiled and said, “They suffered heavy losses in the Sea of Clouds. On the other hand, we didn’t lose a lot the two times we sent an expedition. Naturally, we are stronger. Now they came to cause us trouble. Since this is the case, I reckon it’s time we clean them up. Brother Yu, what do you think?”

Mu Yu smiled faintly and said, “We’ll wait for an opportunity. When the time comes, it wouldn’t be late to deal with them. Those guys knew that something was wrong. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have helped the Lion Race.”

The two seem to be chatting casually, but the contents of their talk terrified Hu Quan. Naturally, he was sweating. He now understood where Ba Silei got his confidence from.

Hu Quan knew about Ba Silei’s contact with cultivators, but he didn’t think much of it. He didn’t expect Ba Silei to have such backing. No wonder the Hundred Treasures Realm was so cruel to the Lions.

Zhao Hai looked at Hu Quan and said, “Patriarch Hu, although Halfbeast Island can become autonomous, we still need the Beast Races to form an alliance and have an alliance leader. So if anything happens in the future, we can approach the leader to pass the message to the others. We think Patriarch Hu would be appropriate to become the alliance leader.”

When Hu Quan heard Zhao Hai, his expression changed. However, it wasn’t a happy expression, but a solemn one. Others might think that this was a great opportunity, but not Hu Quan. If he really becomes the alliance leader, a position handed over by the Hundred Treasures Realm, it means that he has sided with the Hundred Treasures Realm. When the time comes, the beasts of Halfbeast Island would look down on him.

But at the same time, this also meant that the Fox Race would have the Hundred Treasures Realm behind them. This would be good for the Fox Race. If he doesn’t accept, it’s possible that he would offend Hundred Treasures Realm or Zhao Hai. The consequences of which he wouldn’t be able to shoulder.

Hu Quan ran through his thoughts in a blink of an eye. He stood up and then bowed to Mu Yu and Zhao Hai and said, “Thank you Misters for your support. If Misters accepts, Hu Quan is willing to become the alliance leader and serve the Hundred Treasures Realm.”

Hearing Hu Quan, Zhao Hai chuckled and said, “Patriarch Hu is a smart person. Rest assured, we will support you. Although your strength isn’t great, it isn’t small either. You should be able to hold someone down if they challenge your authority. If you can’t, then we will be behind you. As long as you continue to be loyal to the Hundred Treasures Realm, you will continue to receive benefits. The Fox Race would certainly become the strongest race in Halfbeast Island. But if you dare oppose us in private, or do some deals behind our backs, you can’t blame us for being impolite.”

Hu Quan quickly replied, “We won’t dare. Mister can rest assured. We will work faithfully for the Hundred Treasures Realm. I’ll make sure that nothing unfavorable will happen in Halfbeast Island.”

Zhao Hai nodded, then he turned his head to a distant place. There were several black spots approaching quickly. He chuckled and then turned to Mu Yu and said, “Brother Mu, it seems like those people couldn’t sit still. But they’re a little too late.”

Mu Yu smiled faintly and said, “Forget it, it’s unworthy to spend too much time thinking about them. Just let them off.”

Zhao Hai gave a nod.
