Chapter 1886 – Wolf Fang City’s Wan Clan
“Reporting to the Patriarch. The Freedom Alliance army has arrived. They are already outside the city.”
In a huge mansion inside Wolf Fang City, a young man was reporting the status of the Freedom Alliance Army to an imposing middle-aged man.
The middle-aged man nodded and then said, “Send people to get in touch with them. I think with our status, we might not be in Zhao Hai’s eyes. However, it’s impossible to ignore them. Did you prepare the spirit wine I asked for before? Send it over.”
The young man complied and then turned around and left. The middle-aged man sighed and said, “Those idiots are still expecting the return of the Northern Saint Academy. They ran away without a fight, how could they have the courage to return? And now, the academy is trying to cause trouble with the Freedom Alliance. Those who participated in the scheme are truly courting death.”
The middle-aged man took out a jade slip and read its contents carefully. The study immediately fell silent. At this time, the young man from before left the room and then passed by several servants before arriving outside the mansion. On the mansion’s gate were two characters that spelled Wan Residence!
The Wan Clan was an old clan in Wolf Fang City. The ancestor of the clan was an elder of the Northern Saint Academy. However, he wasn’t an immortal stage elder. Since he was stuck in the transcending tribulation stage, the elder decided to settle down on Wolf Fang City and establish the Wan Clan, becoming one of the controlling forces of the city.
But currently, the Wan Clan has no transcending tribulation experts. The strongest person in the clan was the Patriarch Wan Rong who was at the Nascent Soul Stage. But he was very strong for someone below the transcending tribulation stage. This allowed the Wan Clan to ally with the others to control Wolf Fang City once the Northern Saint Academy left.
A few days ago, the Northern Saint Academy sent people to the families in Wolf Fang City, instructing them to form an alliance and cause chaos. The other patriarchs of Wolf Fang City were a bit moved by the proposal, only Wan Rong wasn’t tempted.
Although the Wan Clan’s ancestor was an elder of the Northern Saint Academy, it has been a long time since the Wan Clan had any disciples joining the Northern Saint Academy. It can be said that the connection between the Wan Clan and the Northern Saint Academy was very thin. The Northern Saint Academy’s departure disappointed Wan Rong. However, he also saw the strength of the Freedom Alliance. So although Wan Rong promised the representative of the Northern Saint Academy that they would follow, he was already prepared to join the Freedom Alliance. And when he heard that the Freedom Alliance had arrived, he immediately sent his son to see them while bearing gifts. He wanted to see how the Freedom Alliance plans to deal with the city.
Zhao Hai was currently standing on the Hell King’s Ship, looking at Wolf Fang City in the distance. The entire city was very quiet. One couldn’t even see a person walking the streets. Looking at this response, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile. He knew that the city was employing an uncooperative attitude. They were neglecting Zhao Hai’s presence. However, this didn’t faze Zhao Hai at all.
At this time, several dark spots flew out of Wolf Fang City. Before long, these figures appeared in front of the Freedom Alliance Army. But before they could approach the Hell King’s Ship, they were stopped by the army. With Zhao Hai’s status, not everyone has the qualifications to see him.
Although these people were blocked, Zhao Hai could see and hear their interaction with the army. These people were representatives from the Wan Clan. They wanted an interview. They even brought spirit win as gifts.
This caused Zhao Hai to be curious about the Wan Clan. He waved his hand and said, “Have them come over.” The people from the first army complied. Before long, a young man flew over followed by a few of his servants.
Zhao Hai looked at the young man. This young man was at the Core Formation Stage. Such strength wasn’t anything special in most sects, but to the families outside the sects, he should be considered as one of the elites.
The young man flew until he reached outside the Hell King’s Ship. He didn’t dare embark on the ship. Then he bowed and said, “Wan Xiang has seen Mister. The Wan Clan’s Patriarch Wan Rong wants to give you a gift. This is our family’s famous spirit wine. I ask Mister to accept.”
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “Alright, I’ll accept your gift. Come over, let’s speak.” Wan Xiang complied and carefully took a step into the Hell King’s Ship. As for his servants, they didn’t dare follow him. They continued to stand outside. Each and every one of their expressions was full of respect.
Wan Xiang continued to bow his head as he stepped on the ship. He didn’t dare raise his head to look at Zhao Hai. Seeing this, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Don’t be afraid. Raise your head and speak. Let me introduce myself, I am Zhao Hai.”
Wan Xiang slowly raised his head. But upon hearing that he was facing Zhao Hai, his heart couldn’t help but skip a beat. Wan Xiang knew clearly who Zhao Hai was. This wasn’t a common character. But this person was actually polite to him. Wan Xiang couldn’t help but feel honored.
Wan Xiang gave Zhao Hai another bow and then excitedly replied, “Wan Xian has heard of Mister’s name for a long time. Being able to meet Mister is truly an honor.”
Zhao Hai looked at Wan Xiang and then smiled faintly as he said, “Your Wan Clan did good. You’re the first ones to come when I arrived. It seems like you’re the only one that would visit. Kuangge, tell the others to camp outside the city and find a place to rest. Don’t cause any trouble. Anyone who dares to cause trouble will be skinned alive by me. After that, come with me to visit the Wan Clan.”
Li Kuangge complied and then passed the order down. Meanwhile, Wan Xiang was dumbfounded as he listened. He knew what kind of group the Wan Clan was. It wasn’t anything more than a clan in Wolf Fang City. Even if father Wan Rong doesn’t have the qualifications to see Zhao Hai. But now, Zhao Hai was saying that he would visit the Wan Clan. How could Wan Xiang not be excited?
At the same time, Wan Xian knows that he needs to inform the clan about this as soon as possible. Otherwise, the clan would be in trouble if they didn’t prepare.
Thinking of this, Wan Xiang immediately bowed and said, “Mister, it’s a great honor for you to visit our house. Please allow me to send a servant back to inform the Patriarch.”
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “Alright.” Wan Xiang quickly flew out of the Hell King’s Ship and then called a servant over. After whispering his orders, he immediately had the servant return.
When the servant left, Wan Xiang returned to Zhao Hai’s side and then gave another bow. Then Wan Xiang kept silent. Wan Xiang knew that he would only be able to speak if Zhao Hai allowed him to. Therefore, he didn’t make any noise. He only waited for Zhao Hai to say anything.
At this time, Li Kuangge returned and then cupped his fist towards Zhao Hai before saying, “Commander, the order has been passed down.” Zhao Hai gave a nod.
Then Zhao Hai turned to Wan Xiang and said, “Let your servants into the ship as well. Then let’s head towards Wolf Fang City.” Wan Xiang nodded. Then he waved his hand towards his servants to call them over. Once Wan Xiang’s servants embarked on the ship, they stood cautiously behind Wan Xiang. They didn’t even dare to breathe loudly.
Zhao Hai waved his hand, causing the Hell King’s Ship to fly towards Wolf Fang City. Before long, they arrived at the Wan Clan’s residence. At this time, the Wan Clan has finished its preparations. Every member of the clan, including the women and children, were respectfully standing outside to meet the Hell King’s Ship.
When Zhao Hai arrived with the Hell King’s Ship, Wan Rong immediately bowed and said, “Wan Rong has seen Mister Zhao Hai. Mister, welcome to the Wan Clan’s humble residence.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Patriarch Wan is too polite. The Wan Clan was the only one who got in contact with the Freedom Alliance’s army in the Northern Orthodox Province. The Wan Clan’s good intentions towards the Freedom Alliance is good intentions towards this Zhao Hai. The Freedom Alliance will never treat those who are polite to us. I will remember this.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Wan Rong couldn’t help but be excited. He quickly replied, “I wouldn’t dare. Since I can offer help to Mister, then this one would naturally comply. If Mister doesn’t dislike it, you can stay at this one’s residence for a while.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Then I’ll accept your invite.” After he said that, Zhao Hai led Li Kuangge and the others out of the Hell King’s Ship. However, Laura and the others didn’t follow.
Wan Rong and Wan Xiang followed Zhao Hai along with the Wan Clan members. The clan members were careful in their movements. None of them showed any disrespect.
Zhao Hai didn’t park the Hell King’s Ship directly in the Wan Clan’s courtyard. Instead, he stopped in front of the Wan Clan’s Residence. This gave Wan Rong and the Wan Clan face. When they reached the gates, Wan Rong immediately invited him in, “Sir, please.” Zhao Hai nodded and then walked towards the residence with Wan Rong.
The Wan Clan’s residence was quite big. After Zhao Hai entered, he was led to the main hall of the residence by Wan Rong. There were several chairs inside the hall. It can be seen that these seats weren’t set up temporarily, but were placed here a long time ago. There was also a main seat in the middle of the hall.
Wan Rong asked Zhao Hai to sit on the main seat. Zhao Hai didn’t decline the offer and sat down. Upon sitting down, Zhao Hai turned to Wan Rong and said, “Have your clan members go back. They don’t have to stay here. Also, let that kid stay.” After he said that, Zhao Hai pointed towards a child among the Wan Clan members. This child was about ten years old.
Wan Rong complied and then waved his hand to make his clan members return. The only people left in the hall were Zhao Hai, Li Kuangge, Wan Rong, Wan Xiang, and the little kid.
Wan Rong pulled the child towards Zhao Hai. The child was also quite sensible. He bowed towards Zhao Hai and said, “Wan Hua has seen Mister.”
Zhao Hai nodded at Wan Hua. Then he smiled faintly and said, “This kid is not bad. His roots are very good. I will find a master for you in the Black Tiger Gang. You can go back now.” Wan Hua excitedly nodded and then turned around and left.
Wan Rong and Wan Xiang were also elated. It has been a long time since a sect disciple appeared in the Wan Clan. If this went on, the Wan Clan would eventually fall. But if Wan Hua joins the Black Tiger Gang, the future of the Wan Clan would be assured.
Wan Rong and Wan Xiang cupped their fists towards Zhao Hai and said, “Mister, thank you very much.”
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “His roots are indeed great. If you train him yourself, the most he could reach would be the Nascent Soul Stage. But if he’s in a sect, it’s possible for him to reach the immortal stage. Alright, sit down with me. I don’t want to see you standing while speaking to me.” Wan Rong and Wan Xiang sat down in a daze. They kept recalling Zhao Hai’s words. Wan Hua could possibly become an immortal expert. To them, this was good news. It was enough for the Wan Clan to celebrate.
After everyone had sat down, Zhao Hai looked at Wan Rong and said, “You did good. Haha. You’re not like those idiots who think that the Northern Saint Academy could still return to the Northern Orthodox Province. As I said before, I will not treat anyone who joins the Freedom Alliance unfairly. I’ll stay in Wolf Fang City for a few days. After that, I’ll leave. Once I leave, Wolf Fang City will belong to the Wan Clan. And the Wan Clan will become the Freedom Alliance’s Wolf Fang City Branch. Do you understand?”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Wan Rong stared for a moment. Then he hastily stood up and cupped his fist towards Zhao Hai before saying, “Yes, this Wan Rong understands.” Wan Rong truly understood. He knew that the moment Zhao Hai stepped foot in the Northern Orthodox Province, those who caused chaos wouldn’t be able to see any good days ahead. The other clans in Wolf Fang City will be erased. In the future, only the Wan Clan would remain in Wolf Fang City. This was good news for Wan Rong. He knew that he had made the correct decision.
Seeing that Wan Rong understood what he meant, Zhao Hai nodded and said, “It’s good that you know. I will be staying in the Hell King’s Ship in the next few days. There’s no need for you to pay any respects. If others get in contact with you, there’s no need to go to me. You should know what to do. I don’t want people to disturb me.” Wan Rong nodded.
Zhao Hai stood up and then waved his hand, taking a jade bottle out. Then he threw the bottle to Wan Rong and said, “This is for you. Drink a cup of this along with water. Five cups should be enough for you to reach the transcending tribulation stage. Drink one cup every five days.” After he said that, Zhao Hai left.
Wan Rong received the jade bottle with a surprised expression on his face. Then he quickly bowed towards Zhao Hai and said, “Thanks, Mister.” Zhao Hai waved his hand and then took Li Kuangge with him and left. Wan Rong escorted Zhao Hai up to the Hell King’s Ship before going back to his residence.
The movements in the Wan Clan naturally alarmed the entire Wolf Fang City. When the other clans in the city received the news, their teeth couldn’t help but itch. But they couldn’t do anything about it. Originally, they planned to unite and cause Zhao Hai to dry in the sun for two days. Because all of them were in on the plan, they would share the blame. When the time comes, they would be able to negotiate with Zhao Hai. However, with the Wan Clan moving on its own, all of their plans were wasted. The Wan Clan even snatched the initiative. In the future, these clans wouldn’t be able to get the same benefits as the Wan Clan.
The other clans of Wolf Fang City didn’t know what benefits the Wan Clan gained. However, Zhao Hai visiting the Wan Clan Residence has given the clan a lot of face. As for the person that the Northern Saint Academy sent, he already ran away the moment Zhao Hai arrived.
