Chapter 1848 – Repelling the Heavenly Demons
When the Heavenly Demons retreated, Li Kuangge immediately became excited. He turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Mister, what do we do next?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I only need to deal with the immortal Heavenly Demons. The rest is up to you. But I can send immortal experts to provide help.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Li Kuangge nodded, “Alright. All troops, line up! Prepare to attack!” With Li Kuangge’s order, the second army’s morale sharply rose. Then they charged towards the Heavenly Demon Army.
At this time, Zhao Hai took out some of Hu Wei’s soldiers to help Li Kuangge out.
The morale of the Heavenly Demon Army was already very low. And now that Li Kuangge was attacking, they became more chaotic.
Zhao Hai calmly looked at the Heavenly Demon Army. He wanted to see how the Heavenly Demons would react next. At this moment, a voice was heard, “Immortal experts, retreat. Merge with the army and prepare to meet the enemy!”
Hearing the command from the opposite side, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Still quite dumb. Haha. But that’s alright. Let’s deal with them quickly.”
Upon hearing the order, the immortal Heavenly Demons fused with the army. Hu Wei and the others also began advancing.
With Hu Wei’s army with them, the second army’s morale was very high. They charged towards the Heavenly Demons with all of their vigor.
The Heavenly Demons have also stabilized. After all, with immortal experts fighting by their side, the army was no longer nervous.
Although they were calm, the Heavenly Demons weren’t as confident as before. Hu Wei and his soldiers were just too strong. The immortal Heavenly Demons simply couldn’t stop them.
Most importantly, immortal Heavenly Demons began falling in battle. This was a huge loss for the Heavenly Demon Realm.
The Heavenly Demons were still being pushed back. Meanwhile, the second army continued to push forward. Then the Heavenly Demons discovered that they didn’t have a place to retreat to. Although they also had a base, the defenses of that base weren’t very strong. It didn’t have enough facilities to stop the attack of the cultivators.
Zhao Hai has no intention of holding back. He continued to pursue the Heavenly Demons in a ruthless manner. As long as he routed this army, he could go back to deal with Mo Like’s army.
To be honest, the tenacity of the Heavenly Demons surprised Zhao Hai. But since he doesn’t have the time to play with them, Zhao Hai waved his hand and released a large number of Undead. Although these Undead weren’t powerful, their numbers made them a real threat. Additionally, these Undead were holding improved rifles. There were also huge beasts that had improved cannons on their backs.
With the Undead joining the battle, the Heavenly Demons were further pushed into a desperate state. It must be known that every shot that the Undead made caused huge losses among the Heavenly Demon Army. The balance of the battle tilted further towards the second army.
The losses of the Heavenly Demons rapidly increased. Immortal Heavenly Demons were also falling non-stop. In a short time, dozens of immortal Heavenly Demons fell in battle. Such a loss was something that the Heavenly Demon Realm couldn’t afford.
Finally, when the Heavenly Demon was about to collapse, a command was heard, “Disperse into ten groups and evacuate!” Along with this voice, the Heavenly Demons scattered with a bang.
It was clear that the Heavenly Demons practiced this method of retreat. Their dispersion didn’t cause Heavenly Demons to run in all directions. The Army was divided into equal numbers and escaped in different directions. This made it sure that most of the army would survive. At the same time, the pursuit of Hu Wei and the others didn’t yield much results. This allowed the immortal Heavenly Demons to smoothly escape the battlefield.
Seeing the Heavenly Demons running away, Zhao Hai smiled and no longer chased. Then he looked at Li Kuangge and said, “Mister Li, I still have some matters to deal with in the first army. I’ll be heading back first. I’ll leave the second army to you. Prepare for a counter-attack by the Heavenly Demons.”
Li Kuangge nodded, “Mister can rest assured. I will take care of it.” Zhao Hai waved his hand and received Hu Wei and his army. Then his figure vanished.
Li Kuangge was already aware that Zhao Hai was a spatial ability user. Therefore, he wasn’t startled by his disappearance. He proceeded to take care of the injured while retreating to the base. When it came to handling the matters of the second army, Li Kuangge was much more competent than before.
The situation of the first army was the same as Zhao Hai imagined. Both sides didn’t just clash one or two times. Although Zhao Hai went to the second army and fought against the immortal experts, his command of the first army wasn’t neglected. After all, the ones commanding the first army were Lizzy and Megan. The two were currently using Zhao Hai’s voice to issue the orders.
When Zhao Hai returned to the first army, both sides were still clashing. Mo Like wasn’t aware that Zhao Hai left and had just come back.
The battle between both sides brought losses. The Heavenly Demons were already intending to retreat. According to their past clashes, the first army would also slow down and allow the Heavenly Demons to go back.
The same happened this time. Although Zhao Hai returned to the first army, he wasn’t planning on attacking Mo Like’s army. If he wanted to attack Mo Like’s army, then he would need the cooperation of the first army. But after such a long battle, the combat strength of the first army has been affected to some extent. They weren’t in the best state to attack. Therefore, Zhao Hai allowed the first army to readjust itself. After that, they would proceed to cripple Mo Like’s army.
After returning to the base, Zhao Hai called all of the sub commanders to the Hell King’s Ship. This wasn’t the first time that Zhao Hai called them over, so these sub commanders rushed over.
Once everyone was settled in, Zhao Hai said, “I just went to the second army. They were attacked by the Heavenly Demons. This time, the Heavenly Demon Army was composed of 1000 immortal Heavenly Demons along with 2 million troops.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, the entire hall was in an uproar. Everyone knew what strength 1000 immortal experts represented. This number was astonishing. Such a number of immortal experts was enough to destroy the entire Freedom Alliance.
But soon enough, the room quieted down. They knew that since Zhao Hai appeared here with a calm face, then the second army was fine. Now they wanted to know how the second army was able to survive despite being attacked by 1000 immortal Heavenly Demons.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone and said, “Good. Since you calmed down, this meant that you already knew the result. The second army is alright. Moreover, we were able to repel the attack of the Heavenly Demons.”
Whish! The hall was filled with applause and cheers. They didn’t care how the second army was able to defeat the Heavenly Demons, the fact that they were able to repel the attack was already enough to celebrate.
Zhao Hai waved his hand, quieting everyone. Then he continued, “Everyone should be curious how the second army was able to repel 1000 immortal experts. Actually, there’s no need to keep it a secret. I was the one who repelled the heavenly Demons. Back when I participated in the Demon Slaying Conference, the Heaven Sect plotted against me and sent me to a subspace. Inside that subspace are powerful Undead. Moreover, there were 1000 Undead in that subspace that were at the immortal-stage. Anyone who was sent to that subspace shouldn’t have survived. But unfortunately for the Heaven Sect, I was the one they sent.”
Zhao Hai decided to tell everyone about the origin of his immortal-level Undead. With this explanation, they wouldn’t suspect where he got his Undead. Later on, it would be more convenient to use Hu Wei and his army.
The people of the first army were eagerly listening. They knew that Zhao Hai wasn’t lying. After all, his presence in front of them was proof enough. They just wanted to know more about Zhao Hai’s experience in that subspace.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone and said, “You should have already known that I’m a spatial ability user. At the same time, I’m a dark mage. The Heaven Sect’s scheme actually benefited me. I can go in and out of that subspace. Over a period of time, I subdued the Undead in that subspace. It was with those Undead that I was able to repel the Heavenly Demon Army that was attacking the second army.”
Hearing Zhao Hai’s explanation, the sub commanders had happy and relieved looks on their faces. Now that they belonged to the Freedom Alliance, this meant that their alliance’s strength had increased. Naturally, they would be delighted with this news. Anything that could stop the Heavenly Demons was a good thing.
