Chapter 1882 – Change
Dong Libo was rendered speechless. This was because Jian Wuya was telling the truth. Even if Jian Wuya answered in a crass manner, he still treated Dong Libo as someone on the same side.
If Jian Wuya didn’t remind them, these four sects would definitely clash with Zhao Hai. Then they would be crushed like eggs. Even if they saved some of their core disciples to pass down their legacies, it was still uncertain if it would be passed through multiple generations.
The four northern sects can send their disciples to the south while carrying their years of accumulated resources to re-establish their sects. But once they reach the south, they would essentially be entering the domain of the other super sects. Whether they were in an alliance or not, it was still uncertain what would happen to these core disciples once the elites of their sects disappeared. Only time would tell if the other super sects would accept their existence or not.
Jian Wuya’s words made it clear to Dong Li and the others that they were on the same side. None of the super sect masters were idiots. They underestimated Zhao Hai and the Black Tiger Gang in the past, but this doesn’t mean that their IQ was low. In fact, as soon as the words left Jian Wuya’s mouth, the others immediately knew what he meant.
Dong Libo sat down, dejected. Jiao Hualong and the others didn’t make any noise either. Jian Wuya looked at everyone and said, “Your best choice right now is to leave the northern provinces and come to the south to settle. This way, you would be able to maintain your strength. Rest assured, we will help you.”
Jiao Hualong looked at Jian Wuya and said, “Old Jian, are we just going to leave the Black Tiger Gang alone? I’m still unwilling to accept it.”
Jian Wuya’s eyes flashed a cold light, then he said, “Leave the Black Tiger Gang alone? Of course not. Zhao Hai is just too strong and his existence is going against heaven’s will. We cannot make a move on Zhao Hai. And if we can’t make a move on Zhao Hai, we can’t make a move on the Black Tiger Gang. The only thing we can do right now is to endure.”
Jian Wuya took a deep breath and continued, “The nine super sects are built on endurance. Back when the Wandering Soul Group dominated the Great Realm of Cultivation, the nine super sects endured and slowly accumulated strength. Didn’t we manage to destroy the Wandering Soul Group at that time? In the past, we didn’t treat the Black Tiger Gang as an opponent, but now we have to face them. The Black Tiger Gang, and even the Freedom Alliance, isn’t very strong. But as long as Zhao Hai is present, we cannot make a move on them.”
Jian Wuya scanned everyone with his gaze. His eyes brightened as he said, “But don’t forget, Zhao Hai is only at the transcending tribulation stage. This is the reason why he could continue supporting the Black Tiger Gang. But once he reaches the immortal stage, would he keep staying in the Black Tiger Gang? Will he continue to exhaust his lifespan in peace? He certainly would not. Zhao Hai will definitely go to the Soaring Dragon Realm. The Soaring Dragon Realm has plenty of people that are as abnormal as him. And with Zhao Hai’s talent, he would attract the attention of the upper realm. When the time comes, it would be hard for Zhao Hai to return to the Great Realm of Cultivation. Without Zhao Hai, the Freedom Alliance and the Black Tiger Gang would become toothless tigers. We can make our move then. Remember, ten years is not too late for a gentleman to take revenge.”
Jiao Hualong and the others were silent upon hearing Jian Wuya. They began to lower their heads and pondered. To be honest, they didn’t treat the Freedom Alliance as their opponent in the beginning. Therefore, they were quick to decide to deal with them as though it was an ordinary sect.
But upon hearing Jian Wuya, they realized that the Freedom Alliance has become an existence equal to the nine super sects. What Jian Wuya said was the most correct method to deal with the Black Tiger Gang.
Just like Jian Wuya said, as long as Zhao Hai was present, it was impossible to deal with the Black Tiger Gang. Zhao Hai was still at the transcending tribulation stage, and his lifespan was still very long. But once he reaches the immortal stage and enters the Soaring Dragon Realm, the Black Tiger Gang and the Freedom Alliance would lose his protection. When that time comes, it would be easier to deal with the Black Tiger Gang and the Freedom Alliance.
Jian Wuya looked at Jiao Hualong and the others, then he added, “One more thing, we can’t fight the Black Tiger Gang right now because of the Soaring Dragon Realm. If our two sides fight and we suffer heavy losses, we might lose our entry to the realm. The inspection doesn’t care how the cultivators of a realm died, they only care about the strength of the entire realm. Therefore, we cannot reduce our strength fighting the Black Tiger Gang.”
Jiao Hualong and the others were silent. Jian Wuya’s last statement hit the point. It would be disastrous for the nine super sects if they could no longer enter the Soaring Dragon Realm. This would mean that they would lose their opportunity to get in contact with the higher realms and forgo any chances of ascension. This would greatly impact their future development.”
After some time, Jiao Hualong gritted his teeth and said, “Alright. We will be depending on Old Jiao and the others once we relocate. I will make sure that this enmity will be paid in full sooner or later.”
Jian Wuya replied, “Everyone, make your preparations. The Myriad Demons Sect will move first, then the other three sects will follow. Doesn’t Zhao Hai want the four northern provinces? Then we’ll give it to him. But if he continues to extend his claws to the south, then we would no longer be polite. We would rather sacrifice our entry to the Soaring Dragon Realm than give him any land in the south. Otherwise, even if we keep our qualifications to enter the Soaring Dragon Realm, we won’t be the ones who would be entering it in the future.”
Jiao Hualong and the others nodded. Then Jiao Hualong immediately informed the elders of the Myriad Demons Sect. Such a huge decision couldn’t be hidden from the sect elders. Fortunately, this decision wasn’t made by Jiao Hualong only. Jian Wuya and the others also gave their support.
The elders of the Myriad Demons Sect didn’t make things difficult for Jiao Hualong and the others. They were also people who have lived for a long time and were very concerned about the Black Tiger Gang. Some of them even came from the Soaring Dragon Realm. None of them wanted to end the legacy of the Myriad Demons Sect. Therefore, they agreed to the proposal to move away.
It wasn’t only the Myriad Demons Sect who agreed. The Wonderful Sound Pavilion, Eastern Saint Academy, and Northern Saint Academy also agreed to relocate. With these sects moving out, the northern provinces have essentially fallen into the hands of the Freedom Alliance. Naturally, the four sects were extremely unwilling to do this. However, they would suffer a more miserable fate if they didn’t leave.
Jian Wuya and the others weren’t idling as well. The relocation of the Myriad Demons Sect and the other sects wasn’t a small task. There were plenty of things that needed to be taken care of. Firstly, the four sects have a lot of members that needed to relocate. Jian Wuya and the others had to use all of their influence to coordinate this move.
Zhao Hai didn’t know what Jian Wuya and the others discussed. This was because the nine sect masters were currently inside an area of the Myriad Demons Sect that hasn’t been mapped by the Space.
However, Zhao Hai was monitoring the surrounding area of the four super sects. When he discovered that there were unusual movements with the Myriad Demons Sect, he couldn’t help but be curious.
Zhao Hai never thought that the nine super sects would voluntarily give up their territory in the north. He announced his plan in order to force the nine super sects to group up. Then Zhao Hai would be able to deal with them in one go. Although Zhao Hai was powerful, he was still one person in the end. And he doesn’t want to expose too much of his strength.
If the nine super sects spread their army apart and attack the Freedom Alliance’s territory on multiple fronts, then Zhao Hai would really have a headache. This was an outcome he didn’t want to see.
But seeing that the Myriad Demons Sect was intending to move, Zhao Hai was a bit surprised. And it wasn’t only the Myriad Demons Sect. The Northern Saint Academy, Eastern Saint Academy, and the Wonderful Sound Pavilion were also showing signs of movement.
However, Zhao Hai still followed his original plan. He dispatched the first army towards the Myriad Demons Sect the next day. But this time, Zhao Hai didn’t take his large artifacts out to increase everyone’s speed. In the name of preserving strength, Zhao Hai kept the army’s speed to a very slow pace.
The cultivators of the first army had no opinion on Zhao Hai’s move. They have reached a point of blind worship towards him. They would do whatever Zhao Hai says. Therefore, the advance of the first army wasn’t very fast.
Jiao Hualong and the others who were busy moving also heard about this action. As soon as they got the information, Jiao Hualong and the others understood that Zhao Hai was giving them time. Naturally, Jiao Hualong and the others weren’t grateful towards Zhao Hai. But they picked up their pace.
Cultivators were able to relocate very quickly. After packing their important possessions into spatial items, they could immediately leave. And since the four super sects were leaving with grievances, they destroyed the facilities that they couldn’t take away. They even dug out all of their herbs, even the immature ones.
The sects initially wanted to destroy their medicinal fields. But at this time, Zhao Hai’s Undead appeared in the halls of the sects and attacked. Jiao Hualong and the others weren’t stupid. Zhao Hai was sending them a message telling them to not go too far. Zhao Hai could ignore their previous destruction, but destroying the medicinal fields was going too far.
Although they weren’t aware how Zhao Hai was able to know their plan, the four sects decided to leave the medicinal fields alone. Soon after, the sects left their domains and crossed the Jade Belt River to the southern provinces. From this point on, the four northern provinces were transferred to its new owners.
