Chapter 1640 – Battle Slave?
Luo Ying looked at Mu Yao and Zong Ze walking along with Tang Yaoen. Luo Ying was very familiar with the two. This was because he had seen images of them. To be honest, these two were talents in their own right. Unfortunately, people like them were very common in the Sky Tower.
Those who guarded their small plot of land would never know how huge the world is. Luo Ying thought like this. For Luo Ying, Mu Yao and Zong Ze belong to those who guarded their small lands. Meanwhile, Zhao Hai was someone who can open his eyes to the world.
Luo Ying’s heart wasn’t as calm as his expression. If Zhao Hai was truly a candidate, then his position would be elevated. Actually, Luo Ying’s strength wasn’t any higher than Mu Yao and the others. It was impossible for him to become many times stronger compared to other Immortal Experts.
At this time, a voice was heard, “Hundred Treasures Realm’s Elder Zong Ze, Elder Mu Yao, and Elder Tang Yaoen has arrived!”
Luo Ying immediately stood up and looked at the entrance. The three were walking shoulder to shoulder. Zong Ze cupped his fist and said, “Zong Ze has seen Mister Luo Ying” Zong Ze was currently the Managing Elder of the Hundred Treasures Realm. The reason he discussed with Mu Yao was because of Mu Yao’s insights, and the other was because of Zhao Hai.
The relationship between Zhao Hai and Mu Yu was very good, which extended to Mu Yao. If something happens to Mu Yao, Zhao Hai would certainly lend his hand. Everyone was aware of Zhao Hai’s strength. If Zhao Hai was truly sent to kill, then a lot of people would suffer the consequences.
Because of this, although Zong Ze was the one currently managing the Hundred Treasures Realm, the decisions were actually made after Mu Yao’s advice. Zhao Hai was just too strong, he needed to be considered in every decision the realm makes.
Luo Ying wasn’t very familiar with the Hundred Treasures Realm’s matters, so he greeted Zong Ze first. Naturally, Mu Yao didn’t mind it. After the group sat down, Zong Ze said, “Mister Luo, may I ask the reason why you came to the Hundred Treasures Realm?”
Luo Ying looked at Zong Ze. He knew that Zong Ze was pretending to have no idea. But he still cupped his fist and said “This Luo Ying came this time to see Mister Zhao Hai. If Mister Zhao Hai is here, I would like to meet him.”
Although he has long known about this answer, Zong Ze’s head buzzed when he heard Luo Ying. It was needless to say how important Zhao Hai was to the Hundred Treasures Realm. He was akin to a nuclear weapon back on Earth. It was impossible for the Hundred Treasures Realm to let go of Zhao Hai. They might as well cut their arms off than let Zhao Hai go.
However, Zong Ze and the others knew that Luo Ying came with a purpose. So Zong Ze looked at Luo Ying and said, “Mister Luo, Little Hai is still not out. I ask Mister to wait until he comes out.”
Looking at Zong Ze’s expression, Luo Ying sneered and said, “I’m afraid that it’s not that Zhao Hai hasn’t come out, but Mister seems to want him to close up. Mister should be aware that the Sky Tower has rules. After the five stages and six calamities, the higher realms can be reached through the Sky Tower. But going through isn’t easy. Do you think Little Hai will be able to do it on his own?”
Zong Ze’s main goal was to prevent Zhao Hai from succeeding. He knew clearly that if Zhao Hai becomes stronger, it doesn’t mean that the Hundred Treasures Realm would benefit from it.
Luo Ying looked at Zong Ze and said “Elder Zong Ze, I hope you can see my seriousness.”
At this time, Zhao Hai’s voice was heard, “What reason might Elder have to look for me?” Then his figure appeared on the entrance of the lounge.
Luo Ying turned his head and saw Zhao Hai slowly walking in. After Zhao Hai arrived in front of him, Luo Ying laughed as he cupped his fist and said, “Luo Ying has seen friend Zhao Hai.”
This address shouldn’t be taken lightly. Luo Ying’s words were chosen carefully in order to show Zhao Hai’s status. This also meant that Zhao Hai was now protected in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Naturally, this law wasn’t known by everyone, only those in the higher positions knew of it. But those who knew understood that something significant was about to happen.
Zhao Hai wasn’t flattered by Luo Ying’s address. To be honest, he was surprised to see Luo Ying being polite. It might be because he was aware of Zhao Hai’s strength that he had become polite.
Zhao Hai asked once more, “May I know the reason for Mister’s visit?”
Luo Ying looked at Zhao Hai and said, “My superiors are inviting Mister Zhao Hai to the Tower. I ask Mister to provide an answer as soon as possible.”
Zhao Hai looked at Luo Ying and said, “Mister Luo can rest assured. I will definitely go.” Hearing this, Luo Ying showed a smile.
Zhao Hai turned his head to Mu Yao and Zong Ze and said, “Elder Mu, Elder Zong, I’ll be taking my leave today. Rest assured, this place is Zhao Hai’s home.”
Mu Yao and Zong Ze couldn’t help but stare when they heard Zhao Hai. But then they immediately understood that Zhao Hai was already aware of what was going on. It was precisely because the two knew that they didn’t dare tell Zhao Hai. This was because they wanted Zhao Hai to take a rest. And they were also afraid for Zhao Hai.
Because of their position, Mu Yao and Zong Ze knew about top-level secrets of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. It’s been said that experts invited over by the Sky Tower have never come back.
These top-level figures knew that the Sky Tower would take away talents, therefore they would do their best to prevent it. This was the same reason why Mu Yao and the others wouldn’t tell Zhao Hai that he might be taken by the Sky Tower.
Luo Ying looked at Zhao Hai and gave a slight smile. Although he didn’t know what happened to the Hundred Treasures Realm, he had a deep impression of Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai was the first person to talk to him and smile comfortably. Zhao Hai even gave him a jar of wine. Although it might seem like nothing, it made Luo Ying deeply remember Zhao Hai.
Luo Ying knew where Zhao Hai would be going. In his opinion, it wouldn’t be bad for Zhao Hai to go there. He was aware of how strong Zhao Hai was. Entering that place would be a good opportunity for Zhao Hai.
However, Luo Ying didn’t say anything because he knew that if he said something out of place, then he might disappear the next day.
When Zhao Hai stood up, Mu Yao and Zong Ze had complex expressions. However, they still reminded him to take care. Zhao Hai gave them a nod before turning to Luo Ying and saying, “Mister Luo, please.”
Luo Ying looked at Zhao Hai, then he smiled and said, “Mister Zhao Hai is truly a wise person. I will tell you that your decision wouldn’t be disadvantageous at all. Elder Mu Yao, Elder Zong Ze, Elder Tang Yaoen, we’ll be taking our leave.” After speaking, he cupped his fist towards the three and then walked out.
Zhao Hai didn’t know where Luo Ying would take him. But he knew one thing, that place would have more information regarding the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Zhao Hai has been waiting for this opportunity for a long time. He was wondering about the background of the battlefield.
The two quickly arrived at the transmission formation square. Naturally, the ordinary cultivators of the Hundred Treasures Realm had no idea where Zhao Hai was heading to. This also included people who weren’t from the realm.
Luo Ying took the transmission formation with Zhao Hai directly to the Sky Tower. Looking up at the tower, Luo Ying turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Do you think that the tower looks majestic?”
Zhao Hai didn’t understand where Luo Ying was going, but he nodded and said, “It’s very grand. It’s impossible to know how many levels there are just by looking at it.”
Luo Ying sighed and said, “To the people guarding the tower, its like a cage that traps people inside. They aren’t as free as people like you.”
Zhao Hai couldn’t understand what Luo Ying was saying, so he couldn’t connect the dots. Luo Ying continued, “Come with me.” After he said that, the two entered the first level of the Sky Tower. The moment he entered, Zhao Hai saw that the first level wasn’t the same as the one he encountered before. Now the first floor of the Sky Tower was a small room containing a transmission formation.
Looking at Zhao Hai’s expression, Luo Ying said, “There’s no need to be curious. The Sky Tower is an artifact made by a predecessor. He used endless techniques and a large amount of energy to make it. Even guardians like me didn’t know a tenth of its functions.” Then he walked to the transmission formation after he said that. Zhao Hai didn’t say anything as he followed along. Luo Ying fiddled with the formation a few times before a white flash took the two to a different place.
When Zhao Hai’s vision cleared up, he discovered that they were now on an enormous transmission formation plaza. This plaza was very large, ten times larger than the Hundred Treasures Realm’s. There were both large and small-scale formations in this plaza. White light flashed from time to time as people appeared and disappeared from the transmission formations.
As Zhao Hao was looking around him, he heard Luo Ying, “Come with me.” Then the two flew outside the plaza. Luo Ying arrived before another cultivator. This cultivator looked to be over 20 years old. He had black hair while wearing white cultivation robes. The person’s eyes had a glint showing that he was quite arrogant.
Luo Ying bowed towards this cultivator and said, “I greet the envoy. This one is Luo Ying, a guardian of the 23rd Sky Tower. I brought Zhao Hai over since he has been invited over. ”
Although Zhao Hai has no idea what was going on, Zhao Hai knew that Luo Ying was an Immortal Expert that has Faith Power. Meanwhile, the other party was just a Severed Soul Expert. Zhao Hai didn’t know whether he had Faith Power or not, but Luo Ying didn’t need to be polite to him. Despite this, Luo Ying was very respectful. It seems like this person has a backing that couldn’t be offended.
Most importantly, Zhao Hai heard Luo Ying said that he was a guardian of the 23rd Sky Tower. If he could infer something, then this meant that there were at least 23 Sky Towers!
If it was the same as what Zhao Hai thought, then what concept was that? In other words, there were 22 other Towers. And it seemed like there were more battlefields like the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Back when he was observing the surroundings, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but feel strange. The cultivators going in and out of the transmission formation plaza weren’t that strong. Some were at the Transcending Tribulation Stage while the others were at the Severed Soul Stage. There were a lot of Immortal Experts present.
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but be curious. He didn’t understand what warranted Luo Ying to be careful in this place.
However, just to be sure, Zhao Hai didn’t say anything and also gave a salute to the Severed Soul Expert. As if he didn’t see anything unusual about it.
The Severed Soul Expert swept Zhao Hai with his gaze as he sneered and said, “Luo Ying, you really shamed the 23rd Sky Tower. I remember the last time you sent someone here. Was it 50 years ago? That time, you brought an Immortal Expert but this time it’s just a Severed Soul Expert. Are there no experts in the 23rd Sky Tower?” When this person spoke, he looked Zhao Hai up and down. It was clear that he was looking down on Zhao Hai.
Luo Ying didn’t show any anger in his expression, he just smiled faintly and said, “Zhao Hai has the most potential in the 23rd Sky Tower. This Luo Ying wouldn’t dare shame himself on this.”
The envoy looked at Zhao Hai and then suddenly waved his hand, sending a sword qi flying towards Zhao Hai. This sword qi was different to what Zhao Hai had seen. It was silver-white in color, looking very much like a real flying sword.
Zhao Hai stared for a moment, but he didn’t remain motionless. He sent an invisible sword qi out to meet the incoming attack. When the two sword qi met in the air, they two completely cancelled each other out.
The envoy stared for a moment before his expression changed. He understood that Zhao Hai was letting him off. The cultivation of two cultivators couldn’t be exactly the same. Since this was the case, attacks sent by the two couldn’t just cancel each other out.
Canceling each other meant that when the two attacks met each other, they disappeared at the same time. There would be no fluctuations nor any remaining energy from the two attacks.
Doing something like this was quite impossible, but it actually happened. This only explained one thing. Zhao Hai calculated the exact amount of strength to use in his attack in order to cancel the opponent’s move. This not only confirmed how strong Zhao Hai was, it also showed how powerful he was compared to the envoy.
The envoy coldly snorted and said, “A little capable. Luo Ying, the battle slave you brought this time has some skill. I hope he can give benefits to the group.” After he said that, he turned around and left.
Zhao Hai was stunned. What did that person say? A battle slave? What was this all about?
