Chapter 1631 – Buddhist Realm Visits
Zhao Hai looked calmly at the Sea of Clouds in front of him. He’s currently at Hidden Cloud Village. The scenery of the island was getting better and better. Right now, half the population of the island comprises people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. They were now accustomed to living on the island. If it weren’t for their appearance, they could be considered to be cultivators of the Cloudsea Territory.
The other half of the population were the original Cloudsea Territory cultivators. These cultivators were now quite strong. After several upgrades to their cloud beasts, their cultivation increased. Now most of these people were in the Transcending Tribulation Stage.
They still do the missions every day. Some missions were in the Cloudsea Territory and some were in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. The Cloudsea Territory cultivators were now very familiar with the battlefield.
This time Zhao Hai came to the Cloudsea Territory to take a look. Although the island has already been mapped by the Space, he still wanted to come and see it for himself.
Mu Yu has gone out to practice. Although it was still in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, Zhao Hai doesn’t know where he went. This trial would be important for Mu Yu. His rise to the Immortal Stage depended on it.
Tang Jie was standing beside Zhao Hai. Although Hidden Cloud Village was handed to him for management, Tang Jie didn’t stay in the village all the time. Because of this, he didn’t know as much as Zhao Hai about the village.
It has been two years and Mu Yu was busy attacking the Immortal Stage. On the other hand, Zhao Hai studied the cultivation methods of the Divergent Race. Because of this, the errands of the Hundred Treasures Realm were handed over to Tang Jie. Tang Jie’s progress was very obvious. This doesn’t only include cultivation, his proud bearing had also mellowed down.
Tang Jie turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Brother Hai, you became even more famous. All the realms in the battlefield are now calling you the Hell King. Hahaha. I heard that this nickname has been taken from the World of Cultivation.” Tang Jie admired Zhao Hai very much. Tang Jie was a witness to how Zhao Hai reached his position step by step. Moreover, he wasn’t opportunistic. Everything was gained through Zhao Hai’s own abilities.
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly as he nodded and said, “That’s my nickname back in the World of Cultivation. I didn’t expect it to reach here.”
Tang Jie laughed and said, “Who asked you to be ruthless? Your extermination of the Lion Race hasn’t been done before in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.”
Zhao Hai gave him a look and said, “If we don’t destroy them, we’ll only be making unnecessary trouble for ourselves. Now Halfbeast Island is very good. With the Fox Race managing the other beast races, they’re behaving themselves. Moreover, I made the Fox Race chase down the surviving members of the Lion Race. I also told the other races that providing shelter to the Lion Race is a crime. Everyone helping the Lion Race will be killed. This way, we’ll be able to completely destroy the Lion Race. They will be a lesson to everyone who wants to mess with the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “And you really taught them a lesson. Not only Halfbeast Island, even our subordinate realms have become more obedient. Brother Hai, you might not know this, but a lot of people in the realm now regard you as an idol.”
Zhao Hai forced a smile and said, “That’s fine with me. Once Brother Yu comes back, I’m afraid he’ll be at the Immortal Stage. He’ll be a hero of the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Tang Jie shook his head and said, “That’s different. Brother Yu has been a key training genius since he was a child. He’s talented and everyone admires him very much. But in the end, everyone will think that he was given a great environment. On the other hand, you ascended from the lower realms and reached your current situation with your own efforts. This is the reason everyone admires you the most.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Forget it. There’s no use admiring me. There’s no use in admiring me. In the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, nobody can tell me what to do. In any case, I don’t care about what anyone thinks about me.”
Tang Jie laughed. He looked at Zhao Hai with a hint of admiration in his eyes. Then he said, “I heard that the Elders are planning to punish the other high-grade realms due to what happened with the Lion Race. What do you think about this?”
Zhao Hai thought about it and said, “Giving them a lesson is also good. Otherwise, those fellows wouldn’t behave. The Hundred Treasures Realm is now much stronger compared to those guys. If we don’t show our fangs, then those guys wouldn’t know their place.”
Tang Jie nodded, “Those guys don’t know what’s good for them. They should be thanking us for not making a move on them. But instead they provoked us. They should be taught a lesson.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Alright. Let’s forget about this matter. Let’s leave it to those above. As for the Cloudsea Territory, I think we should begin our expansion.”
As he said that, a jade sword message flew in and stopped in front of Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai stared and then searched the jade sword message with his spiritual force. His expression quickly changed as he said, “I need to go back. It says here that there’s an urgent matter. Maybe something happened.”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “Alright. I still have to stay here for a few days. I haven’t been here for a long time. Also, I like to stay here.” Zhao Hai smiled faintly and then nodded before turning around and leaving.
When Zhao Hai returned to the Hundred Treasures Realm and arrived at the conference hall, he heard Zong Ze’s voice saying, “Little Hai come in.” Zhao Hai responded and then walked in.
Upon entering, Zhao Hai discovered two monks along with Zong Ze and the others. The monks were dressed in grey robes and had medium build. They looked ordinary but had golden skins. Their eyes were closed as though they were asleep.
After looking at the two monks, Zhao Hai turned his head to Zong Ze and the others and then gave them a salute. Zong Ze’s expression wasn’t attractive. He waved his hand and said, “Little Hai, these two Masters are High Monks from the Buddhist Realm. They’re looking for you.”
Zhao Hai stared, he cupped his fist towards the monks and said, “Zhao Hai has seen the Masters. May I ask the reason why you’re looking for me?”
The older of the two monks opened his eyes. His gaze shot out towards Zhao Hai like electricity. Although this wasn’t an attack, the gaze wasn’t kind. Zhao Hai wasn’t afraid of them but he was taken aback. He wondered when he offended the Buddhist Realm.
It must be known that the Buddhist Realm was one of the Five Great Realms and their strength was formidable. Zhao Hai had no intention of offending them. And even if he wanted to offend them, he didn’t have any interactions with the Buddhist Realm. Moreover, the Buddhist Cultivators of the World of Cultivation and the Buddhist Realm seem to have no connections. So why was this monk looking at him this unkindly?
When the monk saw that Zhao Hai was unmoved by his faze, his eyes flickered. Then he said, “Benefactor Zhao Hai, we’re seeking you to ask for two things.”
Zhao Hai stared, “What do the Masters want from me?”
The monk replied, “We want your Buddhist Techniques and your artifacts.”
Hearing the monk, Zong Ze’s expression changed. Zong Ze and the others stared at the two monks. They don’t know about Zhao Hai’s Buddhist Techniques, but they knew how powerful his artifacts were. And now these two monks want them?
The smile on Zhao Hai’s face didn’t change. He looked at the two monks and said, “Those two are my properties, aren’t they? I don’t know why the Masters ask for it.”
“Hmph!” The younger monk coldly snorted as he opened his eyes. Strangely, his eyes were red and teeming with killing intent. These eyes would only appear on demonic cultivators. It’s amusing how it appeared on a monk.
“You practice our Buddhist Techniques and you also use the lost treasures of our realm. Is that enough of a reason?” The young monk’s voice was sonorous and powerful.
Zhao Hai turned to the young monk and then gave him a smile as he said, “I practice your Buddhist methods? And you’re saying that I’m using your lost Buddhist artifacts? What evidence do you have?”
“My words are the evidence. Zhao Hai, don’t you dare deny that you’re using our Buddhist Methods.” The young monk overbearingly replied.
Zhao Hai didn’t bother looking at the younger monk anymore as he replied, “The two Masters seem to have misunderstood. Actually, the Buddhist Realm is a branch of the World of Cultivation’s Buddhist Sect, a subordinate realm of the Hundred Treasures Realm. So the Buddhist Realm should submit to the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
The two monks’ expressions changed. The younger monk coldly snorted and replied, “You talk nonsense.”
Zhao Hai’s expression also turned cold as he replied, “Why do you say that? My words are the evidence. What makes you certain that you’re not cultivating our Buddhist Sect’s methods?”
When Zhao Hai said this, the two monks couldn’t speak for some time. Zhao Hai made it clear that they couldn’t just use their words to attack him.
The younger monk’s expression changed. He angrily shouted, “Good, you’re a thief with sharp tongue. Go die!” Then he sent a fist towards Zhao Hai.
The older monk was stunned, then he quickly shouted, “Junior Brother, don’t.” However it was too late. The fist energy of the young monk would soon reach Zhao Hai.
At this moment, Zhao Hai also sent a punch forward. Fist met fist. An explosion was heard before the younger monk’s expression changed. His wrist has been folded back.
The young monk’s face paled. But he was still able to pull back and then eat a pill.
The old monk looked at the younger monk’s hand and his expression changed. He was clear about his junior brother’s strength. Although he was impulsive, he was actually formidable. This was especially true for his fist. Even Immortal Experts wouldn’t dare meet his punch.
A trace of anger flashed through the eyes of the older monk. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Aren’t you going too far? Why hurt my junior brother?”
Zhao Hai looked at the older monk. Then he laughed and said, “Unreasonable monks. Do you think that your Buddhist Realm is the master of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield? You can only attack others and they can’t retaliate? You even dared to snatch another person’s cultivation method and artifact. Let alone crippling his hand, even if I kill him, I wouldn’t be wrong.”
The older monk’s expression was green. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “The techniques you use are techniques of the Buddhist Realm. Moreover, your artifact belongs to us. We have evidence.”
Hearing the old monk, Zhao Hai’s expression changed, “Evidence? Where is it?”
The old monk coldly snorted and then handed a jade slip to Zhao Hai and said, “Take a look.”
Zhao Hai received the jade slip and swept it with his spiritual force. Then with a strange expression on his face as he said, “This is the evidence you have?”
The older monk said, “Right, this is our evidence. It’s a recorded history of the Buddhist Realm. As mentioned in the jade slip, you’re using a supreme method of our realm, the Vajra Bodhi Divine Art. And your artifact is our Buddhist Realm’s Ten-thousand Transformations Bowl.”
Zhao Hai laughed out loudly as he said, “You don’t even know the name of my technique and you dared to claim that it belongs to the Buddhist Realm. Shameless. Most importantly, my artifact was made by a genius of our World of Cultivation. Indeed shameless. I have seen shameless people, but this is the first time I saw someone as shameless as you. My eyes have been opened.”
Zong Ze, who didn’t make a noise until now, said, “Buddhist Realm friends, our Hundred Treasures Realm respect the Five Great Realms. We don’t want to form any enmity with you. But to blackmail our Hundred Treasures Realm, do you really think that we won’t dare fight you?” At the end, Zong Ze stood up. His expression was violent. It’s clear that this gentle elder has been angered.
The old monk wasn’t afraid of Zong Ze’s words. Conversely, he sneered and said, “Who do you think you think you are? Zhao Hai’s cultivation method belongs to the Buddhist Realm. His artifact also belongs to the Buddhist Realm. Others might be afraid of the Hundred Treasures Realm, but we are not. I forgot to tell you, on the way here, a cultivator from the Hundred Treasures Realm actually didn’t give us a salute. So I took the chance to kill such a disrespectful cultivator. And those who are like him will suffer the same fate.” After he said that, he took out a severed head.
When Zhao Hai saw the head that the old monk took out, his complexion explosively changed.
