Chapter 1830 – Self-destruct
The Zombie Commander might not expect much from Zhao Hai, but Zhao Hai has an idea what happened. Because he was schemed against, Hu Wei was killed. Then his men brought his corpse away from the battlefield and they hid inside a remote mountain. Then an anomaly suddenly happened that brought them to this subspace. The stone mountain they were currently in seems to have a function that nurtures souls. Because of this, instead of dispersing, Hu Wei’s soul was kept inside his body.
Zhao Hai nodded, and he said, “So how did all of you become Undead?”
The Zombie Commander shook his head and said, “I don’t know. Not long after we arrived here, we all died of starvation. Then one day, all of us began to wake up with this appearance. Then we decided to protect master and create a cave on the mountain to put Master’s corpse in.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he looked at the Zombie Commander and said, “You might see your master as dead, but to me he is not. His soul is still inside his body. But because his soul is too weak, even with the soul energy in the mountain, it’s still impossible for him to recover. I can find a way to restore his soul and become like you. Are you willing?”
When the Zombie Commander heard Zhao Hai, his body shivered with excitement. He looked at Zhao Hai and asked, “Are you telling the truth?”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I am.”
The Zombie Commander bowed towards Zhao Hai and said, “As long as Mister can revive the Master, we will be willing to follow your orders as repayment.”
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “Get up first and discuss it with your companions. It’s not too late to make a decision.”
The Zombie Commander stared then he nodded and said, “Mister is too polite. Please wait a moment. I will discuss it with the others immediately.” Then he stood up and ran out.
Before long, the sound of surprise was heard outside. Then all of the zombies entered the hall. But because the hall was big enough, everyone was able to come in.
Once everyone was inside the hall, one of the Zombie Soldiers looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Mister, is the Commander speaking the truth? Do you really have a way to revive the Master?”
Zhao Hai nodded, “He’s telling the truth. I have the means to revive him.”
Right after he said that, the Zombies knelt down and said, “Mister, please. If the Master is revived, we’ll be willing to go through fire and water for you!”
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “Get up. Wait for me to revive your master first before you make a decision. Right, I need to bring him to another place. You can also follow me. What do you think? Do you agree?”
The Zombie Soldiers looked at each other before saying, “We’re willing to go with Mister.” They actually have no other choice but to do so. Zhao Hai was the sole hope for them to revive their Master. They need to take the risk.
A flash of glee passed through Zhao Hai’s eyes. He was truly intending on reviging Hu Wei as a zombie. But what if Hu Wei doesn’t agree to follow him? Therefore, Zhao Hai wanted to bring Hu Wei and the others into the Space. Once inside, everything else would be easier to deal with. If these immortal-level Undead enter the Space, they would already be in Zhao Hai’s hands.
Although the Zombie Soldiers didn’t know what Zhao Hai was planning, they couldn’t give up on this opportunity. For them, this might be the last chance they have to revive their master.
They didn’t know for how long they stayed in this subspace. Once in a while, there would be people who enter and attack them. However, they were all repelled and turned into Undead by the subspace. None of these people have the capability to revive Hu Wei. When they heard that Zhao Hai was confident of reviving Hu Wei, the Zombie Soldiers immediately agreed to him.
Seeing everyone agree, Zhao Hai nodded. Then he waved his hand and opened a spatial rift. Looking through the spatial rift, the Zombie Soldier saw that the place on the other side was similar to the subspace. Most importantly, they could see Undead on the other side. They couldn’t help but stare, but later on they were relieved.
They were worried that Hu Wei’s last strand of soul would dissipate once they left the mountain. But seeing the Hell Space, they were completely relieved.
After opening the rift to the Hell Space, Zhao Hai said, “Carry your General and come with me.” Then Zhao Hai stepped into the Hell Space. The Zombie Commander and the others lifted Hu Wei’s stone platform and followed Zhao Hai to the Hell Space.
When the immortal-level Undead entered the Hell Space, Zhao Hai immediately heard a prompt, “Robots not belonging to the Space have been detected. The robots can be suppressed, but they hold an obsession. Hoping that the host would follow through with his promise. Otherwise, these robots would self-destruct!”
Zhao Hai was startled. This was the first time he heard a prompt like this. The Space would directly subdue any Undead before, but now he was asked to achieve his promise.
However, Zhao Hai soon understood what was going on. In the past, some of the Undead that were sent to the Space went in voluntarily. Naturally, those Undead could be easily subdued. Other Undead had been captured and were treated as hostile robots by the Space. So they were forcibly subdued.
But the Zombie Soldiers were special. They weren’t hostile to Zhao Hai, so they weren’t seen as a threat by the Space. They were just too loyal to Hu Wei. If Zhao Hai can’t revive Hu Wei, then the Zombie Soldiers would self-destruct. It seems like instead of attacking Zhao Hai if he fails, these Zombie Soldiers would rather kill themselves.
This was also good since Zhao Hai wasn’t thinking of deceiving them. He just wanted to move to the Hell Space just in case Hu Wei refused to follow him and become aggressive. It would be safer for Zhao Hai to make his moves inside the Hell Space than outside.
After reaching the Hell Space, Zhao Hai found a place for the Zombie Soldiers to put Hu Wei down. Then he waved his hand and took out a wisp of soul fire. Soul fire was the purest form of soul power.
After grasping the wisp of soul fire, Zhao Hai separated it into smaller pieces and then fed it bit by bit to Hu Wei’s body. He could also feel the changes in Hu Wei’s soul.
Soul fire was the best tonic for the soul. However, Hu Wei’s soul container was too large. Zhao Hai was afraid that he couldn’t replenish Hu Wei’s soul. If Zhao Hai fails, the Zombie Soldiers would immediately kill themselves. Zhao Hai wouldn’t have enough time to subdue them.
When the soul fire entered Hu Wei’s body, the wisp of soul left inside immediately absorbed it. Then the power of the soul grew a bit.
Seeing that there was improvement, Zhao Hai continued to add soul fire little by little. At the same time, he paid attention to the changes of the soul inside Hu Wei’s body.
As soul fire were absorbed by Hu Wei’s soul, it continued growing little by little. Before long, Hu Wei’s soul stabilized and could now absorb whole soul fires without being damaged.
Zhao Hai took out more soul fires for Hu Wei to absorb. Hu Wei’s body also absorbed the soul fire faster and faster. This caused Zhao Hai to be surprised. Despite the amount of soul fire being fed into Hu Wei’s body, there had been no signs of him waking up.
Hu Wei’s soul was clearly very powerful. The soul fires he absorbed could almost match a Core Formation Cultivator’s. And yet he still didn’t wake up.
The Zombie Commander was anxiously looking at Zhao Hai. Seeing Zhao Hai frown, the Zombie Commander’s heart sank. Then he quickly asked, “Mister, is there a problem?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “There’s no problem. But it’s strange. He already absorbed a lot of soul fire. He should be awakening right now. Let me take a closer look.”
After he said that, Zhao Hai touched Hu Wei’s body with his hand. He found that Hu Wei’s body was still very soft, like a living person. Then after feeling for a moment, he discovered that Hu Wei’s body was very tough. His muscles showed how strong he was. He should be stronger than immortal experts who took the body cultivation path.
This discovery caused Zhao Hai to realize why Hu Wei has yet to awaken. Hu Wei’s soul was very weak. However, his body has been constantly absorbing the yin qi in the subspace. This transformed his corpse into something much stronger than immortal experts. It was precisely because of this that his soul still hasn’t caught up with his body, thus explaining why didn’t wake up.
Hu Wei’s soul was only at the Core Formation Stage and will soon arrive at the Nascent Soul Stage. But compared to his body, the soul was still very far. Hu Wei’s soul was too weak to control his powerful body.
The Zombie Commander continued to look at Zhao Hai with concern. Zhao Hai showed a pondering expression after prodding Hu Wei’s body two times. Then Zhao Hai showed an expression of understanding before he smiled. This made the Zombie Commander confused even more. He couldn’t help but ask, “Mister, how is Master’s situation?”
