Chapter 1730 – Saving Lives
Since his spiritual force was no use, Zhao Hai fell to the ground and walked into the mountain. Zhao Hai has a formidable physique, so it wasn’t a problem for him to climb the mountain on foot. As he went on, Zhao Hai paid attention to the plants he passed by. Once in a while, he would take plants that the Space didn’t have. Even if the Space has it, he would also take some of the plants to see if there’s anything different about them.
But soon, Zhao Hai was disappointed. These plants were ordinary and won’t benefit the Space. Before long, Zhao Hai gave up on collecting plants.
Zhao Hai might look like he was slowly walking forward, but he was actually using the Cosmos Technique. Although he was in a dense forest, it didn’t affect his movements. It looked like he was walking on flat ground. Moreover, he moved very quickly. Even if cultivators see him, they would only see a blur passing by.
The more Zhao Hai walked into the mountain, the lusher the forest became and the beasts he encountered increased. Zhao Hai wasn’t attracted to these beasts so he didn’t collect them for the Space.
After walking for two hours, with Zhao Hai’s speed, he already reached the deeper parts of the mountain. He also met a few cultivators on the way. However, the level of these cultivators wasn’t very high so Zhao Hai just ignored them. In order to not get noticed, he walked around these people. With Zhao Hai’s ability, it was impossible for these people to discover him.
While Zhao Hai was hurrying along, he suddenly heard an explosion in front of him followed by a beast roar. Zhao Hai stared for a moment before he went towards the place where the sound came from. Zhao Hai doesn’t know what happened, but from what he heard, the beast shouldn’t be a weak one.
Zhao Hai quickly moved towards the beast roar. After some time, Zhao Hai saw the beast. It was a bull-type beast. It was five meters tall and had green skin. It also had two huge curved horns. One could see at a glance that it wasn’t a peaceful beast.
Facing this beast was surprisingly a female cultivator. She was wearing an emerald-green robe and she had black hair. There was a ring-shaped artifact wrapped around her body to protect her. She also had a flying sword to fight against the bull-type beast.
The beast wasn’t only defensively powerful, it could also control the surrounding plants. Its strength was no less than a Core Formation Cultivator. It wasn’t easy to deal with.
On the other hand, the female cultivator was also at the Core Formation Stage. Moreover, her two artifacts were quite formidable. Despite seeing the battle, Zhao Hai didn’t go over and help. In the Great World of Cultivation, if you see a cultivator dealing with a beast, it is a taboo to help them even if they’re at a disadvantageous position.
In the Great World of Cultivation, it wasn’t a good thing to give unprompted help, especially if you don’t know the other party. If you go to help, the cultivator might think that you were stealing their prey. Not only would they dislike your help, they would also treat you as an enemy. In order to avoid making unnecessary enemies, it was best to not help.
Zhao Hai looked at the female cultivator and saw that it would take her some time before she could kill the bull-type beast. Moreover, it was a question whether they would be able to kill it or not.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about the life or death of the female cultivator. Just as he was about to turn around and leave, he felt another cultivator arrive not far away from him. It was a core formation disciple from the Roaring Flame Sect, moreover he was from the inner sect.
In the Great World of Cultivation, core formation cultivators generally belong to the inner sect, some might even be in the core sect. Seeing that the person was a core formation cultivator, Zhao Hai immediately determined that he was an inner sect disciple. This was because core disciples wouldn’t come to this place.
Zhao Hai was certain that the newcomer didn’t detect him. When Zhao Hai restrains his aura, not to mention inner disciples, even transcending tribulation experts wouldn’t detect him.
Zhao Hai looked at the inner sect disciple of the Roaring Flame Sect and couldn’t help but murmur, “Sure enough, there’s no place that’s safe. This guy seems to have bad intentions towards that cultivator. We’ll deal with him later and then use his identity.”
After half an hour, the battle between the female cultivator and the bull-type beast has reached its end. The beast was finally defeated by the female cultivator. However, there were a lot of wounds on the cultivator’s body. It seems like she wouldn’t be able to fight for longer.
The situation of the female cultivator isn’t getting better. She was sweating from exhaustion, but she still persisted. Just as she sighed in relief, a fiery red sword stabbed at her.
The female cultivator didn’t think that she would be attacked. And since she was exhausted, it was impossible for her to evade. She was stabbed on the shoulder and then she fell down.
“Hahaha, Li Cuiyun, your day has come.” As he spoke that, the cultivator from the Roaring Flame Sect revealed himself. Zhao Hai was stunned when he heard this. It seems like the cultivator of the Roaring Flame Sect knew the female cultivator. Moreover, there seems to be hatred between the two of them.
The green-robed female cultivator saw the Roaring Flame Sect cultivator and her expression immediately changed. “Wei Tianchen, it’s you. You despicable villain. You dared sneak attack me. Aren’t you afraid of the Medicine King Peak’s revenge?”
Hearing Li Cuiyun, Zhao Hai understood where she came from. She was actually from the Northern Divergent Province’s Medicine King Peak. This sect wasn’t inferior to the Black Tiger Gang. They mainly focused on creating medicinal pills. Moreover, their pills were famous throughout the Great World of Cultivation. And because their pills have helped countless cultivators, their reputation was very good. Most people from the Northern Divergent Province would give respect whenever they hear the Medicine King Peak.
“Li Cuiyun, despite your state, you still have the energy to be arrogant. I’ll kill you after I make use of your body.” Wei Tianchen looked at Li Cuiyun with a sinister smile on his face.
Li Cuiyun’s expression changed. She looked at Wei Tianchen and then said through clenched teeth, “Wei Tianchent, you’re a beast. My Master helped you to reach the Core Formation Stage by refining a pill. And this is how you repay your debt?”
Wei Tianchen laughed and said, “Li Cuiyun, you’re too naive. Right, your Master helped me by refining a pill to aid me in reaching the Core Formation Stage. However, you shouldn’t have treated me like that in the first place.”
Li Cuiyun looked at Wei Tianchen as she coldly snorted and said, “Wei Tianchen, you dared make a move on me behind my Master. I didn’t tell Master about it and decided to let it go. But you still dared to do this. Once Master finds out, he will not let you off.”
Wei Tianchen laughed and said, “Li Cuiyun, you’re really ignorant. Don’t forget where we are. Even if you die here, nobody would know. And even if I kill you, nobody would know that I did it. But don’t worry, I’ll let others know that you were killed by the Black Tiger Gang. I’ve been polite to your Master, I believe he would trust my words.”
Li Cuiyun’s expression immediately changed. Perhaps she might not know, but Wei Tianchen has always shown a polite and educated appearance in front of her Master. Because of this, Wei Tianchen had his trust. It was also because of this that she didn’t tell her Master about what Wei Tianchen did. This was because her Master might not believe it. Her Master has a lot of disciples and Li Cuiyun wasn’t anyone special. If her Master ignores her because of that, then it would be bad for her future.
If Wei Tianchen really killed her and pushed the blame to someone else, then her Master would certainly believe Wei Tianchen. Her death would be used to blame other people.
“Sigh!” Just as Li Cuiyun was about to give up, she suddenly heard a sigh. This sigh came suddenly, it shocked both Li Cuiyun and Wei Tianchen.
Li Cuiyun’s surprise could be understood. After all, Wei Tianchen’s sword has sealed her spiritual qi. It was normal for her to be unable to sense her surroundings. On the other hand, Wei Tianchen had been on guard all this time. Despite this, he didn’t know where the sigh came from.
Wei Tianchen’s complexion changed. His body immediately appeared beside Li Cuiyun as he shouted, “Who’s there? Come out!”
“I already decided to kill you, but you just gave me another reason to. People from the Roaring Flame Sect are truly despicable and shameless.” After saying that, a figure was seen coming out of the trees. He walked slowly, but his steps carried a stable feeling.
The person stopped ten steps in front of Wei Tianchen. Wei Tianchen looked at the person who arrived. This person looked ordinary and wore black clothing. However, he couldn’t see his strength, which made Wei Tianchen wary. It was possible that the other party was stronger than him.
Wei Tianchen looked at the person and said, “Your Excellency, may I know who you are? Do we have a grudge?”
The perso smiled faintly and said, “We don’t have a grudge. In fact, this is our first meeting. How could we have any enmity?”
Wei Tianchen looked at the person in confusion. This person didn’t exude any aura at all. He looked like was talking to a friend. However, he was talking about killing him. Did he misspeak?
The person saw Wei Tianchen’s confused expression as he smiled and said, “Let me introduce myself. I am Black Tiger Gang’s Zhao Hai. Now, do you know why I want to kill you?”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Wei Tianchen couldn’t help but stare. Then his complexion changed as he said, “You’re actually from the Black Tiger Gang. Zhao Hai, I seem to have heard that name before.”
Zhao Hai looked at Wei Tianchen and said, “Ten years ago, your Roaring Flame Sect conspired with the Wandering Soul Group to attack the Black Tiger Gang. The Gang Leader gave us the command to kill every Roaring Flame Sect disciple we encounter.”
Looking at Zhao Hai, Wei Tianchen sneered and said, “To kill me, you will need to have skill.” Knowing that Zhao Hai was from the Black Tiger Gang, Wei Tianchen knew that today’s matter wouldn’t end in a friendly manner.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Nobody is stopping you from resisting. If you kill me, then that would mean that I don’t have the skill. If I kill you, then that would be because you have bad luck.”
Wei Tianchen couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “Right,…..”. Then he moved his foot forward as he stabbed towards Zhao Hai. He pretended to be talking but he actually sent an attack towards Zhao Hai.
As the flying sword was stabbing towards Zhao Hai, a lion appeared behind Wei Tianchen’s body. As he moved, the lion also moved towards Zhao Hai.
Seeing Wei Tianchen’s movement, a killing intent flashed through Zhao Hai’s eyes. He grabbed with his left hand to capture the red flying sword. Meanwhile, he extended his right hand to capture Wei Tianchen’s neck. In an instant, Wei Tianchen’s dao avatar vanished.
Wei Tianchen was still alive, but he had a look of surprise on his face. He didn’t expect to be easily captured by Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai looked at Wei Tianchen and said, “You’re truly sinister. But this is also good. Once you’re dead, you would no longer be able to harm others.” After he said that, Zhao Hai broke Wei Tianchen’s neck. Never in his dreams did Wei Tianchen think that he would be killed just as he got promoted to the Core Formation Stage.
After killing Wei Tianchen, Zhao Hai sent his body to the Space and turned him into Undead. However, Zhao Hai didn’t immediately go see Wei Tianchen. He turned to look at Li Cuiyun who was on the ground. Before this, Li Cuiyun’s spiritual qi was sealed by Wie Tianchen. She was prepared to explode his gold core to perish together with Wei Tianchen. She didn’t expect Zhao Hai to appear suddenly and save her. Now that Wei Tianchen was dead, her spiritual qi naturally returned.
Spiritual qi was important to any cultivator. Now that her spiritual qi was unsealed, Li Cuiyun was able to stop the bleeding on her shoulder.
Li Cuiyun looked at Zhao Hai and then struggled to stand up before giving Zhao Hai a salute and said, “Li Cuiyun thanks Senior Brother from the Black Tiger Gang. If you weren’t here, I would have been killed by that despicable man.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “There’s no need to be polite. Everyone from the Roaring Flame Sect are enemies of the Black Tiger Gang. I only killed him because he’s from the Roaring Flame Sect. Saving you just came as a convenience. But I hope that Junior Sister can forget about this matter. Treat it as though you didn’t see Wei Tianchen and me today. Is that alright with you?”
Although Li Cuiyun was puzzled, she still nodded and said, “I’ll follow Senior Brother’s words.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright, remember your promise.” After he said that, his body flashed and disappeared, leaving Li Cuiyun staring at empty space.
