Chapter 1892 – Vicious and Merciless
Zhao Hai looked at Meng Wudi and laughed, “Hahaha. You’re wrong. The Northern Orthodox Province is already my territory. This isn’t a place where you can come and go whenever you want.”
Meng Wudi sneered, “You talk big. You actually dare to treat the Northern Orthodox Province as your territory.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I wonder who was scared and ran away because of my words. Also, there seems to be people who sent an assassin to poison and kill me. Unfortunately, that assassin is now part of my Undead Army. Would you like to meet him?”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Meng Wudi’s pupil shrank. His voice turned ruthless as he said, “Zhao Hai, I will tear you to shreds one of these days.”
Zhao Hai just smiled, “You’re wasting your breath. It’s time to fight!” After he said that, Zhao Hai waved his hand. Then his Undead army began to press forward and attack the army of the nine super sects.
Fortunately, Jiao Hualong was prepared. As soon as Zhao Hai began his attack, the army was able to stop them. However, they were smart this time. The army didn’t attack but instead defended with all their strength. The attacks of the Undead weren’t strong either since they mainly used cannons and rifles.
As the two sides fought, Jian Wuya received a jade sword message from Jiao Hualong. Knowing that Zhao Hai was already fighting, he also began to make his move.
Several spatial ability users started to open a rift using the coordinates of the Black Tiger Gang. Before long, a huge rift appeared in front of Jian Wuya and the others. Then the group began flying in.
Jian Wuya didn’t bring a lot of troops to attack the Black Tiger Gang. However, the troops he brought were elites. There were 200 immortal experts as well as 2000 transcending tribulation experts. It was a small team with formidable strength.
When Jian Wuya and the others came out of the spatial rift, they found that they had arrived inside a huge cave. There were also some cultivators who were stunned at their arrival.
Seeing the robes worn by the cultivators, Jian Wuya couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “Black Tiger Gang, let’s see how you deal with us this time. Kill!” The elites roared and began killing cultivators who wore black robes.
Then at this moment, a loud alarm sounded out inside the cave. The expression of the Black Tiger Gang cultivators changed before they quickly ran away. At the same time, Jian Wuya and the others noticed red lines appearing on the walls of the cave. Then these red lines turned into formations, causing the surroundings to turn burning hot. At the same time, an immense pressure bore down on the intruders.
Jian Wuya stared, he looked around him and knew that this was the defenses of the Black Tiger Gang. He quickly ordered, “Destroy the walls, quickly!”
Hearing Jian Wuya, the cultivators immediately showed their dao avatars and began attacking the walls of the cave. However, when their attacks hit the wall, bursts of red light appeared and blocked the attack. After several rounds of attack, the walls were still undamaged.
At this moment, the sound of wind was heard. Jian Wuya turned his head and saw a large number of Black Tiger Gang cultivators heading towards them. Then the cultivators began to spread out and sent attacks towards Jian Wuya and the others.
Jian Wuya’s team quickly turned around and battled with the Black Tiger Gang. Then suddenly, several fire serpents began appearing out of the walls and attacked the cultivators of the nine super sects. As soon as the fire serpent appeared, the people of the nine super sects were immediately pressured. After a while, someone was caught by the fire serpents and was burned into ash.
Jian Wuya was stunned when he saw this. He didn’t think the formations on the wall were this strong. Was the Black Tiger Gang unafraid of being burnt?
Before long, Jian Wuya discovered that the people of the Black Tiger Gang weren’t afraid of these fire serpents. They seem to have identifiers on them that made them invisible to the serpents.
The strength of the fire element formation was also becoming stronger and stronger. At this point, even the immortal experts would dare let the fire serpents touch them. Seeing this, Jian Wuya couldn’t help but get startled. He didn’t think that the defenses of the Black Tiger Gang would be this strong.
Jian Wuya couldn’t help but complain secretly once more. He knew that they had been defeated again. It’s impossible for the Black Tiger Gang to have no immortal experts. And yet, without the immortal experts making a move, Jian Wuya and the others were already having a hard time. If the immortal experts of the Black Tiger Gang entered the battle, Jian Wuya and the others would be in even more trouble.
Thinking of this, Jian Wuya immediately said, “Open the rift. We’re retreating.” With his order, the spatial ability users immediately opened a spatial rift. Then Jian Wuya led his army to retreat.
When Jian Wuya returned, he discovered that their original 2000 transcending tribulation experts were now down to 1500. Moreover, ten immortal experts had perished.
Such loss was heavy, and Jian Wuya was naturally annoyed. Abbott Numu looked at Jian Wuya and said, “The spatial ability users have suffered some backlash in opening the spatial rift. They would need some time before they can use their abilities.”
Jian Wuya smiled bitterly and said, “I didn’t think that the defenses of the Black Tiger Gang would be so strong. It seems like we’re lost again. Send a message to Old Jiao and Old Meng. Tell them to retreat. We’ve already lost too many people.”
Abbott Numu sighed. Then he took out a jade sword message and sent it to Jiao Hualong and Meng Wudi. Although Abbott Numu was an irritable person, meeting the capabilities of the Black Tiger Gang caused him to shut up.
The movements of Jian Wuya and the others were being monitored by Zhao Hai. Seeing Jian Wuya suffer only a few losses before they retreated, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but feel pity. Jian Wuya and the others should have stayed more in the Black Tiger Gang to make them feel even more pain.
But since Jian Wuya’s group has retreated, Zhao Hai has no thought of chasing them down. As for Jiao Hualong and his army, he didn’t plan to kill a lot of them. He might as well use the time to settle the four northern provinces as soon as possible.
Thinking of this, Zhao Hai waved his hand, stopping his Undead from attacking. As he stood on Alien, Zhao Hai went to the front of his Undead army and then said, “Jiao Hualong, Meng Wudi, come out and meet me.”
Jiao Hualong and Meng Wudi didn’t retreat too far. So upon hearing Zhao Hai, they immediately flew over. They looked at Zhao Hai in confusion, they didn’t know why Zhao Hai stopped attacking.
Zhao Hai looked at the two and said, “Listen, I know why the both of you are here. You want to buy time for Jian Wuya and the others to attack the Black Tiger Gang’s base. To be honest, I’ve known about your plan for a long time. And now Jian Wuya and the others have been beaten back by the Black Tiger Gang. It’s time for you to retreat. I don’t want to kill too many people. Don’t force me.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Jiao Hualong and Meng Wudi stared. Then their complexion couldn’t help but change. They didn’t know how Zhao Hai knew about this.
However, Meng Wudi quickly recovered. He coldly snorted and said, “Don’t scare us, Zhao Hai. Did Zhang Feng inform you? You don’t have to act like you know everything.”
Zhao Hai sneered and said, “There’s no need to test me. Jian Wuya just attacked the Black Tiger Gang. They didn’t even cause the immortal experts of the Black Tiger Gang to make a move. You can ask Jian Wuya about it once you go back. Let me tell you the truth, although I am here, I left immortal-level Undead in the Black Tiger Gang. If you still don’t believe me, I sent immortal-level Undead to hunt down the spatial ability users that you have. Now go back. Otherwise, you can’t blame me for being impolite.”
Hearing this, Meng Wudi and Jiao Hualong’s complexion paled. Their reaction was half because of shock and half because of fear. They believed that Zhao Hai wouldn’t deceive them about these matters.
Although Meng Wudi and Jiao Hualong wanted to continue fighting Zhao Hai, they also knew that the nine super sects would be finished if they did. The nine super sects still had experts, but most of them had been used this time. If their losses were too heavy, the nine super sects would no longer be able to support their position.
Meng Wudi and Jiao Hualong looked at each other. Then through clenched teeth, they ordered, “Withdraw!”
The large artifacts of the nine super sect army began to retreat. The army followed soon after. After crossing the jade belt river, the army quickly flew back.
Looking at the nine super sect army far away, Zhao Hai has no intentions to pursue. However, he looked at the Northern Orthodox Province and said, “I’ve already given you a lot of opportunities. If you still don’t understand, then you can’t blame me.” After he said that, he waved his hand, commanding his Undead to charge into the Northern Orthodox Province.
When his Undead army began to move, Zhao Hai sent a message to Li Kuangge telling him to attack from the north to the south while the Undead army would attack from the south to the north. They would settle the Northern Orthodox Province and then move on to the two provinces.
The battle between Zhao Hai and the nine super sect army didn’t take a long time. Both sides only fought for a couple of hours. But in these few hours, Li Kuangge and the others were able to reach another sect headquarters. Li Kuangge followed Zhao Hai’s previous action and sent an ultimatum towards the sect. If they didn’t surrender, then they would be attacked.
Surprisingly, that sect surrendered. They complied with joining the Freedom Alliance and became a branch hall in the Northern Orthodox Province.
Although Li Kuangge was surprised by how easily the sect was subdued, he complied with the request of the small sect. They were admitted to the Freedom Alliance and spared. Then the army continued on. It was at this moment that Li Kuangge received Zhao Hai’s jade sword message, telling him to pick up speed.
It was also at this time that the Northern Orthodox Province received news that Zhao Hai repelled the army of the nine super sects. As soon as the news spread, the armies of the Western Demon Province and the Eastern Orthodox Province dispersed immediately. Some of the smaller sects even began to get in touch with the Freedom Alliance.
However, the situation of the Northern Orthodox Province wasn’t quite the same. Everyone here has already formed small alliances. These people tried to put conditions in front of Zhao Hai, but they didn’t expect that Zhao Hai would not only decline, he also destroyed anyone who tried to negotiate with him.
The entire Northern Orthodox Province experienced carnage. The sects of the province finally knew what it meant to be fierce. Those lucky sects that have yet to meet the Freedom Alliance didn’t dare try to put out conditions. All of them took the initiative to get in touch with Zhao Hai.
After destroying more than ten sects, nobody dared to negotiate with Zhao Hai. As long as they didn’t put forth any conditions, they would be accepted by the Freedom Alliance. However, they were forced by Zhao Hai to agree to being in the lowest class of the alliance.
Although these sects were discontented by Zhao Hai’s methods, they didn’t dare say anything. Otherwise, they risk getting exterminated by the Freedom Alliance. Now, the cultivators of the Northern Orthodox Province were terrified of Zhao Hai. In their opinion, Zhao Hai was a ruthless killer who wouldn’t hesitate to exterminate people’s families.
The Freedom Alliance’s sect classification has also spread to those who have yet to join the alliance. Hearing that only those who surrendered to Zhao Hai were placed at the lowest classification, the sects who have yet to surrender could no longer sit still. They immediately requested to join the Freedom Alliance. But although the Freedom Alliance agreed to them joining, they weren’t told what class they were in. This caused these sects to feel uneasy.
Because of Zhao Hai’s methods, the Northern Orthodox Province quickly became peaceful. The sects of the province could no longer be controlled by the Northern Saint Academy. They didn’t expect that Zhao Hai would be so ruthless in his methods. Given the opportunity, he would kill people and exterminate families. Everyone would be terrified of such methods.
At the same time, the southern provinces were very calm. The nine super sect alliance have disbanded. They wouldn’t provoke Zhao Hai in the meantime. They have no other choice since Zhao Hai has killed their spatial ability users. Additionally, the report that Jiao Hualong and Meng Wudi brought back caused Jian Wuya and the rest to behave. They still don’t know how Zhao Hai managed to find out about their plan. It was because of this that they were afraid of making a move. Before they could find out how Zhao Hai was able to know, they wouldn’t attack the Freedom Alliance.
