Chapter 1637 – Though Far Away, Must Be Punished

Jinu blankly stared at the Buddhist Realm’s protective shield. In his mind, this was too unusual. Although the Hundred Treasures Realm have withdrawn, the Buddhist Realm shouldn’t have lowered their guard down this quickly.

He soon recovered his thoughts. If there were people in the Buddhist Realm headquarters, they would have reacted when the stone was thrown. Then someone would come out to check. However, there was nothing, which was strange.

Jinu carefully flew to the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters. When he entered the headquarters, he was terrified. In front of him was a stretch of ruins. The Buddhist Realm headquarters had been destroyed!

Jinu’s brain couldn’t process the information in front of him for a while. He couldn’t comprehend what happened to the Buddhist Realm. He couldn’t fathom how it could be destroyed. Even if the other Great Realms join hands, they still wouldn’t be able to reduce the Buddhist Realm to this state. What really happened?

Jinu cleared his thoughts and swept the headquarters with his spiritual force. He wasn’t able to see anyone alive. Not only people, the entire Buddhist Realm had no living creatures inside.

The hair on Jinu’s body couldn’t help but stand up. He felt that the emptiness of the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters was a giant beast staring at him. It was as if he was treated as food, and he couldn’t do anything about it.

Jinu doesn’t understand this feeling, but he can feel that it exists.

Jinu flew forward. Discovering that there was really nobody, he began to fly faster and faster. It was as though he was being chased.

Before long, Jinu was breathing heavily. He wasn’t tired but his spirit was exhausted. When he calmed down, he discovered why he was so affected. It was because the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters was too static.

No mistake, the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters was too quiet, it was as empty as a jet black night. It was like staying inside a room with no light or sound. Although you know that you’re alone, the quietness of the surroundings would still cause you to be unconsciously scared. You might even experience hallucinations.

Jinu felt that he wasn’t under a spiritual nor material attack. The Buddhist Realm was just too quiet. Basic instincts would tell you that something was wrong. Being a Severed Soul Expert, this feeling was more apparent for Jinu.

Jinu calmed his mood. He was no longer nervous. But his fear was replaced by shock.

The Buddhist Realm wasn’t a weak realm. It was one of the top existences in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. But now their headquarters was like a ghost town. This only meant that something happened to the Buddhist Realm. And nobody was clear about the situation.

Thinking of this, Jinu couldn’t help but worry. He wanted to know what really happened. He continued searching the headquarters but failed to discover any clues.

However, something strange showed itself to Jinu. The damage to the headquarters was quite critical. But there’s something that quite didn’t match the surroundings.

Jinu stopped and slowly recalled the layout of the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters. He wanted to remember what caused him to feel strange.

Suddenly, an image flashed inside his mind. Amidst the stretch of ruins, the Buddhist Realm’s transmission formations were perfectly preserved. It looked completely different to its surroundings.

When he thought of this, Jinu’s body couldn’t help but shake. This was because he could think of another similar matter. An insane news just swept through the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield recently. The news was about Halfbeast Island’s Lion Race.

Halfbeast Island has been under the Divergent Realm’s control for many years. Although they weren’t able to completely take control of the island, the Divergent Realm was still clear about the island’s matters. Then they handed the island off to the Hundred Treasures Realm in order to let go of the burden.

When Zhao Hai returned to the Hundred Treasures Realm, the method they used to deal with Halfbeast Island surprised the Divergent Realm. They allowed autonomy of the island and they also destroyed the Lion Race who wanted to be treated equal to the Hundred Treasures Realm. It was even said that the Lion Race’s den itself wasn’t spared.

The Buddhist Realm’s headquarters had traces of the Lion Race’s fate. The Lion Race’s headquarters have been devastated yet their transmission formation was left intact.

Jinu immediately flew towards the transmission formations. He then discovered that there was only one coordinate registered on the formations. It was a coordinate that Jinu hadn’t seen before.

Jinu stood in front of the transmission formation. After hesitating for a long time, he clenched his teeth and entered. After a flash of light, he disappeared.

The next moment, Jinu found himself on a strange planet. He appeared one a large transmission formation square. From the architectural style, it seems like the place he appeared in was a very huge temple.

Jinu looked around him and discovered that it was just like the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters. The place was also eerily silent. Jinu flew around and saw nothing, he could only smell blood.

Jinu followed the scent of blood and soon arrived in a pagoda forest. After a high monk dies, their relics would be put in this place. This was a true sacred land of the Buddhist Realm.

What shocked Jinu was that on each pagoda there was a dead person. That person’s blood flowed down, causing the land beneath to be crimson. The amount of corpses in this place made it a corpse forest.

In the deepest part of the pagoda forest were ten large pagodas. According to legend, these pagodas hold the relics of the Buddhist Realm’s Ten Saints.

According to legend, these Ten Saints were the founders of Buddhism in the Buddhist Realm. These ten people worshipped the same master and treated each other as brothers. After finding their path, they cultivated and eventually established the Buddhist Realm. According to legend, the Ten Saints’ lifespan exceeded a million years. In the end, they took their eternal rest together and left ten relics. As a tribute to the Ten Saints these ten pagodas were built. In the entire Buddhist Realm, there were only ten of such pagodas. This showed how much respect the Buddhist Realm had for their founders.

But now, across these ten pagodas, a message was written in blood: “No matter how far, everyone who angers the Hundred Treasures Realm will be punished!” The bloody message exuded a murderous aura.

Looking at the huge characters, Jinu’s body couldn’t help but shake in terror. This was the Buddhist Realm, one of the Five Great Realms, among the most powerful existences in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. And yet they had been completely exterminated. There seems to be no survivors left. Moreover, such characters were written across their sacred land.

Jinu knew that these characters weren’t written for Buddhist Realm cultivators. After all, they wouldn’t be able to see it. These words were for Jinu and the others. They were written for the other realms who would come to check on what happened to the Buddhist Realm.

Jinu felt a cold air pass through his back. A shiver went through his entire body as though he was inside an ice cave.

There was no longer any need for further scouting, so Jinu turned around and ran. He needs to tell Hawkins and the Divergent Realm the news as soon as possible.

Jinu felt strange because there was a lack of corpses in the headquarters. But after seeing the characters, he knew that they had already become part of Zhao Hai’s Undead army.

Zhao Hai had a lot of Undead, this was something everyone in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield knew. Because of this, Zhao Hai gained the nickname of ‘Hell King’. If Jinu didn’t know where the corpses of the Buddhist Realm went, then he would be an idiot.

Jinu used the transmission formation to return to the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. He didn’t stop flying and proceeded to rush out at his fastest speed. It was as if he was being chased by man-eating beasts.

Jinu didn’t dare use the Buddhist Realm’s transmission formation to return to the Divergent Realm. He was afraid that he might destroy the transmission formation. Jinu knew that the reason these transmission formations were intact was because it would let others see what happened to the Buddhist Realm. Jinu was afraid of being hunted down by the Hundred Treasures Realm if he were to ruin anything.

After reaching an area far away from the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters, Jinu let out a long breath. Then he turned to the Buddhist Realm’s direction one last time before leaving.

Shortly after Jinu left, shadows began appearing around the Buddhist Realm’s headquarters. They were similarly observing the Buddhist Realm. And after experiencing what Jinu experienced, they also scattered like rabbits being chased by wolves.

When the Hundred Treasures Realm backed out from attacking the Buddhist Realm in order to reclaim their headquarters, there were some criticisms thrown at them. To the others, the Hundred Treasures Realm had been improving too quickly and it was time for them to be disgraced. The other realms were happy to see them suffer.

The high-grade realms that had been driven away were also unconvinced. They were prepared to ally with the Buddhist Realm in order to deal with the Hundred Treasures Realm.

But after the scouts returned, the entire Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield had turned quiet. They all collectively lost their ability to speak.

Then news arrived that all of the subordinate realms under the Buddhist Realm had surrendered to the Hundred Treasures Realm. The Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t send a lot of people, only a small team. Yet, this small team was able to move unhindered in the Buddhist Realm’s territory. Nobody dared to make a move on them.

This information immediately spread to the smaller realms in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Some of these realms had yet to know about what happened to the Buddhist Realm. Their strength wasn’t enough to send scouts to find out the situation. So when news that the Hundred Treasures Realm had occupied the Buddhist Realm’s territory, the smaller realms were shocked.

Amidst all of this, the Hundred Treasures Realm had been silent. It was as if what they did was as simple as drinking water. This caused the realms in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield to feel terror.

The high-grade realms who were prepared to attack the Hundred Treasures Realm once more immediately panicked when they got the news. They didn’t expect the Hundred Treasures Realm to be this powerful. They were now regretting their decisions. They kept sending people to the Hundred Treasures Realm to discuss matters. But unfortunately, they were sent back.

The more the Hundred Treasures Realm was like this, the more terrified the high-grade realms were. So as they kept sending envoys to meet Zong Ze and Mu Yao, they also made preparations for war.

However, how could such movements be hidden from Zhao Hai? He knew every single action these realms were making. He also thinks that it was time. So he went to the headquarters and asked to see Zong Ze and Mu Yao.

Because the Hundred Treasures Realm was currently in an important state, A Ten Elders Assembly can happen at any time. Naturally, Mu Yao was a leader of an Elder’s Assembly. The Hundred Treasures Realm were moving in an orderly and efficient manner. However, everyone in the Hundred Treasures Realm had lost their smiles. One of the reasons was Mu Yu’s death, and the other was the occupation of their headquarters.

Although they were able to swiftly retake their headquarters, the fact that it has been taken was shameful. They were constantly thinking of taking revenge. Because of this, how could they have the time to smile?

Zhao Hai directly entered the conference hall without any announcement. By this time, Zhao Hai was one of the few who had the privilege to enter the conference hall whenever he wanted.

After entering the hall, Mu Yao and the others turned their heads to him. Seeing Zhao Hai arrive, a rare smile appeared on Mu Yao’s face as he asked, “Little Hai, take a seat. Why did you visit? Are you prepared to deal with those fellows?”

Zhao Hai nodded. After giving the Elders a salute, he replied, “Right, it should be the right time to make a move. We’ve already established our reputation, it’s time to deal with them.”

Mu Yao smiled and said, “No rush. The other realms are beginning to have weak knees. Let’s drag things out for a while to see. It would be best if we could deal with them without using force.”

Zhao Hai frowned and said, “Elder, I don’t think that would be a better decision. Those high-grade realms will not surrender easily. They had been our equals, so even if they surrender to us, I don’t see any way they would listen to us. If they make trouble in the future, it would be more troublesome for us. I think we should just drive them out of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield and have our subordinate realms manage their territory. Only in this way can we become one of the Great Realms of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Maybe even the biggest Great Realm.”
