Chapter 1834 – Ruyi Scepter Young Master
Zhao Hai didn’t know about the Valley Master’s evaluation of him. But he wouldn’t have taken it seriously. Zhao Hai doesn’t even care about the disrespect that the Valley Master has shown him. Although this puzzled him, he wasn’t angry. How the Hundred Flowers Valley treated him has no effect on his plans.
Li Xunhua was somewhat embarrassed when he walked out with Zhao Hai, “Junior Brother, I apologize about the Valley Master’s informal greeting. Please don’t take offense.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It’s no problem. It’s just Valley Master’s personality. I prefer informal settings as well.”
Li Xinhua smiled, “That’s good. Junior Brother, come with me first. The others will be taken care of by someone else. By the way, Junior Brother, do you want some attendants to serve you? The Hundred Flowers Valley is quite proud of our maids.”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “There’s no need. Thank you Senior Brother for your good intentions. I’ll go see the others later.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Li Xunhua nodded and said, “Alright, I’ll go arrange for someone to lead you to the others later. I still have some matters to take care of, so I won’t be able to accompany you for long.”
Zhao Hai gave a nod, “Senior Brother, there’s no need to be so polite. We’re allies, just treat me like family.” Li Xunhua nodded. Then the two continued walking. However, there was a hazy glint on Li Xunhua’s eyes.
Before long, the two left the Hundred Flowers Palace. Then Li Xunhua brought Zhao Hai to his residence. The residence was very good. Its interior decoration was exquisite. It was clear that it was made to entertain guests.
The most striking about the cave were the two maids inside it. Both of the maids were wearing cultivator robes. However, their robes were cut in strategic places that showed their curves. Although they weren’t as scantily clad as the women in the Hundred Flowers Palace, they were still quite attractive.
Li Xunhua looked at the two maids before turning to Zhao Hai, “These two maids are for you. They have been trained well. You can take them with you. Naturally, you can do anything to them. Remember, anything.”
Zhao Hai stared. Then he smiled bitterly as he cupped his fist towards Li Xunhua. Li Xunhua returned the salute before he left, leaving the two maids behind. Besides the salute that they gave Zhao Hai in the beginning, the maids didn’t make any other moves.
Zhao Hai looked at the two maids and said, “Do you know where the rest of the Freedom Alliance are sent? Can I see them?”
One of the maids immediately said, “Replying to Mister. We know. Please come with me.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “What’s your name?”
The maid said, “Replying to Mister, my name is Baihe(Lily).”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Alright, Baihe. Lead me there.” Baihe nodded and then flew out of the cave with Zhao Hai. Surprisingly, the maid called Baihe was at the core formation stage. She was stronger than most of the reinforcements that were sent.”
Before long, Baihe led Zhao Hai to a place outside the valley. There was a huge residence there. The cultivators of the Freedom Alliance were sent there.
It could be seen that the Hundred Flowers Valley treated the reinforcements very well. They arranged an entire area for them alone. Moreover, people of the Hundred Flowers Valley were busy serving the troops.
Upon arriving, Zhao Hai was immediately recognized by the people of the Freedom Alliance. The cultivators quickly gave them a salute. No matter which sect they came from, Zhao Hai would talk to them. He asked him how they were doing and he even visited a few residences.
The arrangements of the Hundred Flower Valley were very good. Each residence was very clean and were luxuriously decorated. One couldn’t find any point to complain about.
After chatting with the others for a while, Zhao Hai arrived at the area where the cultivators of the Black Tiger Gang were. The Black Tiger Gang sent 30 thousand troops, which was the most out of all sects. However, there were a lot of cultivators in the spirit forming stage. They weren’t very strong.
Seeing Zhao Hai, these cultivators became excited. It was without a doubt that all of them see Zhao Hai as an idol.
Zhao Hai chatted with them for some time before he returned to his cave residence. Everything seems normal.
However, nobody noticed that when Zhao Hai left, the cultivators of the Black Tiger Gang didn’t leave their residences for quite some time. But even if someone noticed, they wouldn’t suspect anything.
Nobody knew that when Zhao Hai left, all of the Black Tiger Gang’s cultivators found a jade slip in their hands. At the same time, Zhao Hai’s voice sounded in their head telling them to return to their residences and read the jade slips.
Once these cultivators returned to their residences, they immediately read the jade slip and understood what’s going on. The jade slip also acted as a talisman that had an illusion formation inside. More importantly, the talisman could block an attack from an immortal expert. After blocking the attack, the formation would activate and produce an illusion the cultivator was killed. Then the cultivator would be teleported back to the Black Tiger Gang. The bodies of the cultivators would be replaced by Undead that would act immobile.
This was Zhao Hai’s way of tricking everyone. As long as this method was used, the low-level cultivators of the Black Tiger Gang wouldn’t perish. Meanwhile, other people would think that the Black Tiger Gang sacrificed their men.
Zhao Hai didn’t use this method in the first army because there were too many eyes on him. If he used this method, nobody would find a corpse of the Black Tiger Gang among the remains. Then the other sects would begin to suspect the Black Tiger Gang.
After resting for a day, Zhao Hai went out of his residence and gathered everyone from the Freedom Alliance. Once everyone was gathered, Li Xunhua appeared.
Looking at the assembled cultivators of the Freedom Alliance, Li Xunhua couldn’t help but be moved a little. He knows about the situation of the Hundred Flowers Valley. The valley doesn’t need any reinforcements at all. But now, the Freedom Alliance took out their last troops to provide them with help. How could Li Xunhua not be moved?
Li Xunhua approached Zhao Hai and said, “Junior Brother, there’s no need to be anxious. How about resting for a bit more?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “There’s no need. Now’s not the time to rest. I want to go to the frontlines to take a look.”
Li Xunhua looked at Zhao Hai and then nodded, “Alright. Junior Brother, come with me.” Then Li Xunhua led Zhao Hai and the others to the transmission formation plaza.
Upon arriving, Zhao Hai discovered that the transmission formation had already been prepared. Li Xunhua and Zhao Hai entered first and disappeared with a flash. Then the other cultivators followed through in batches.
The next moment, Zhao Hai was already in the base of the Hundred Flowers Alliance. This place didn’t interest Zhao Hai, he already saw it multiple times in the Space.
The base was located on a low mountain. This was originally the headquarters of a small sect. The small sect had already evacuated and its sect was turned into an army base by the alliance.
When Zhao Hai and Li Xunhua appeared, someone immediately came over to welcome them. This person was wearing robes embroidered with flowers. He held a fan in one of his hands and looked scholarly.
Seeing this person, Zhao Hai immediately noticed that it was Hua Wushang, the Young Master of the Hundred Flowers Valley. Zhao Hai met him back in the Heavenly Demon Trial. Zhao Hai didn’t think that Hua Wushang would be the commander of the Hundred Flowers Alliance army.
Hua Wushang was highly valued and was being groomed to become the next Valley Master. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been given such an important position in the army.
When Hua Wushang arrived in front of Li Xunhua and Zhao Hai, he immediately bowed and said, “I have seen Senior Brother Li and Mister Zhao Hai.”
Li Xunhua nodded, then he said, “Junior Brother, you’ve worked hard. Mister Zhao Hai is here to provide support. I hope that the two of you can cooperate with each other and teach the Heavenly Demons a lesson.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Senior Brother Li is too polite. Senior Brother Hua, I don’t know if you saw me, but both of us participated in the Heavenly Demon Trial. It’s an honor to fight beside you.”
When Hua Wushang saw that Zhao Hai wasn’t arrogant, he was a bit glad. Then he responded, “Junior Brother Zhao is too polite. This time, I’ll have to learn from you. I heard about your victories against the Heavenly Demons.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “Senior Brother Hua must be joking. Although we managed to stop the Heavenly Demon Army, we also suffered heavy losses. The Freedom Alliance doesn’t have a lot of experts to begin with. As you can see, the people I brought with me are very low-level. We can only rely on our mountain guarding formations to hold on.
Hua Wushang also noticed the cultivators that Zhao Hai brought. He couldn’t help but knit his brows. Although his commanding ability was ordinary, he had clashed with the Heavenly Demons several times. He knew that these spirit forming stage cultivators couldn’t defeat the Heavenly Demons. The spirit forming stage cultivators that Zhao Hai brought over would just die on the battlefield.
