Chapter 1899 – Trial
Zhang Feng nodded and said, “Naturally, we cannot lack in who to send. You obviously need to go. However, I can’t accompany you. There’s just too many matters that I need to deal with. I already discussed it with everyone in the alliance. You will go. The alliance will support all of your decisions.”
Zhao Hai stared. He knew what this statement meant. This wasn’t as simple as telling him that he would represent the Freedom Alliance. This meant that he didn’t need to discuss the decisions that he had to make with the alliance.
In other words, no matter what Zhao Hai decides to do, the Freedom Alliance will be behind him. They were giving him the power to make decisions on behalf of the alliance.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright. When do I have to go?”
Zhang Feng replied, “Three days later. In the main hall of the Heaven Sect.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Alright, then I’ll go and take a rest. Three days later, I will head to the Heaven Sect.” After he said that, Zhao Hai stood up, cupped his fist towards Zhang Feng, and then left.
Seeing Zhao Hai leaving, Zhang Feng couldn’t help but smile. He held the jade slip once more and read its contents. He was confident in Zhao Hai. With him going to the Heaven Sect, there would definitely be no issues.
Moreover, the decision to give Zhao Hai the power to make a decision on behalf of the alliance wasn’t suggested by Zhang Feng. Moreover, it wasn’t the idea of one or two people. This was something that was proposed by the sect masters of the Freedom Alliance on their own initiative.
Zhao Hai didn’t mind any of these. Three days was a short time. He plans to rest in this period of time. At the same time, he was curious about meeting the people from the Soaring Dragon Realm.
Three days passed in a blink of an eye. Zhao Hai was now on the Black Tiger Gang’s transmission formation, heading towards the Heaven Sect. The Freedom Alliance has already replied to the proposal of the nine super sects. For a short period, both sides wouldn’t make a move against each other. Moreover, they began to trade with each other. Trading cities that were once closed were beginning to open.
Because of the agreement, Zhao Hai was able to use the transmission formation to head directly towards the Heaven Sect. This time, he was alone.
With a flash of white light, Zhao Hai appeared on the Heaven Sect’s transmission formation. Seeing Zhao Hai, the disciple guarding the transmission formation stared before their complexion changed. But they immediately recovered and then stepped forward and gave a bow before saying, “I have seen Mister Zhao Hai. Mister, the sect master is already waiting for you.”
Zhao Hai nodded and then he walked towards the main hall of the Heaven Sect. As soon as he left the transmission formation, a disciple of the Heaven Sect met him along the way and led him towards the hall.
Jian Wuya and the other sect masters were already inside the hall. When they saw Zhao Hai coming in, their expressions turned complicated. However, they quickly hid their reactions. Then Jian Wuya cupped his fist towards Zhao Hai and said, “I have seen Mister Zhao Hai. Mister, please have a seat.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he cupped his fist as well, “I have seen the sect masters.” Then he took the last seat.
Seeing Zhao Hai’s actions, Jian Wuya couldn’t help but stare. But he quickly recovered. Then he said, “Three days ago, we received a message from the Soaring Dragon Realm’s envoy. They told us that they would be announcing the results of the Great Realm of Cultivation’s evaluation. But from what I can see, we’re still qualified for the Soaring Dragon Realm. Because if we weren’t, they wouldn’t have sent someone.”
Abbott Numu nodded and said, “I thought the same. However, it’s a bit strange. I remember reading records of the sect about the Soaring Dragon Realm. Last time, the Soaring Dragon Realm immediately informed us that we qualified. A jade slip was sent to all sects in the realm introducing the Soaring Dragon Realm as well as the method to go there. There’s no envoy. So why would they send someone this time? Did something go wrong?”
Hearing Abbott Numu, Jian Wuya and the others frowned. Then Gui Lingzi said, “I seem to recall the same thing. I read that the jade slip that the Soaring Dragon Realm sends needs to be recorded immediately because it would self-destruct. I haven’t heard of the Soaring Dragon Realm sending an envoy.”
The group frowned. They don’t understand why the Soaring Dragon Realm did it this time. Naturally, there was a bit of worry in their hearts.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone, then he smiled faintly and said, “Why think so much about it. It means we still have a chance. If we lost our qualification, then they wouldn’t have spared us a glance.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Jian Wuya and the others stared. Then they nodded their heads. If they were no longer allowed to enter the Soaring Dragon Realm, they wouldn’t have received word.
Jian Wuya looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Mister Zhao Hai, I know that we had some differences in the past. But the qualifications to enter the Soaring Dragon Realm is very important to the Great Realm of Cultivation. Therefore, I hope that you can work with us this time.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Of course. I’m also someone from the Great Realm of Cultivation. I would definitely help guarantee our entry into the Soaring Dragon Realm. If it wasn’t for this, do you think I would be calmly sitting here?”
If someone else said this, Jian Wuya and the others would have been enraged. But since it was Zhao Hai, they couldn’t help but calm themselves down. This was a testament to Zhao Hai’s strength.
At this time, a powerful aura suddenly came from outside. This aura was the most powerful one Zhao Hai has ever felt. It was much stronger than immortal experts. In front of this aura, he felt like a kitten facing a tiger.
Jian Wuya took a deep breath and said, “Let’s go meet the guest.” Then he stood up and walked out with Zhao Hai and the others following behind him. This time, they didn’t dare be neglectful.
Before long, the group arrived at the Heaven Sect’s transmission formation plaza. At this time, a person was standing on a transmission formation. Upon seeing this person, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. This was because he didn’t expect the person’s appearance to be like this.
The man was wearing warrior clothing and had a huge blade on his back. He had short hair and a red headband on his forehead. He wore leather boots on his feet. He looked like a valiant warrior.
The person looked about 30 years old. His skin was dark and his eyes were sharp. Looking at him was like looking at a mountain. One couldn’t help but lower their heads in his presence.
Jian Wuya and the others were similarly shocked. They didn’t think that the envoy from the Soaring Dragon Realm would look like this.
But fortunately for them, they were people who had seen a lot of things. So they immediately recovered from their shock. Jian Wuya cupped his fist and said, “Is mister the envoy from the Soaring Dragon Realm? This one is the Heaven Sect’s sect master Jian Wuya.”
When the others introduced themselves, the man just nodded. But when he saw Zhao Hai, the man had a playful look in his eyes.
After everyone introduced himself, the man said, “I’m called Lin Ling. I came here to inform you about your qualifications for the Soaring Dragon Realm.”
Hearing Lin Ling, Jian Wuya and the others turned serious. They were originally planning to invite Lin Ling to the main hall before discussing. They didn’t expect Lin Ling to get to the point immediately.
Lin Ling looked at everyone and said, “The Great Realm of Cultivation has lost a large part of its strength. You’re originally qualified to enter the Soaring Dragon Realm, but because of your loss of strength, you’re on the verge of being disqualified. You need to undergo another assessment before you can enter the Soaring Dragon Realm.”
Hearing Lin Ling, the hearts of Jian Wuya and the others sank. Then Jian Wuya asked, “May I ask what the assessment is?”
Lin Ling replied, “You’re given two days to get someone under the immortal stage to participate on behalf of your realm. They will be sent to a trial in a special realm along with 1000 other participants. They won’t only need to fight powerful beasts, they would also have to fight against other teams. There’s no time limit to the trial. The last ten realm representatives to survive will be qualified to enter the Soaring Dragon Realm. The others will lose their qualifications. I will return in two days.” After he said that, the transmission formation flashed a white light and Lin Ling was no longer there.
Jian Wuya and the others couldn’t help but stare at the transmission formation. Then they all turned their heads towards Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “Let’s head back and talk.”
Jian Wuya and the others also forced a smile. They were speechless. After everyone returned to the hall. Jian Wuya coughed lightly and then said, “This time, we can only trust Mister Zhao Hai to represent us.”
Zhao Hai just nodded and said, “This relates to the entire realm. I’ll definitely go. But I hope that you can coexist peacefully with the Freedom Alliance while I’m away. Is that fine?”
Jian Wuya nodded and said, “Mister can rest assured. This is the most important period for the Great Realm of Cultivation. For the sake of the Soaring Dragon Realm, everything else can be placed to the side.”
Zhao Hai gave a nod, “That’s good. I didn’t expect there to be an assessment this time. A thousand realms. Hehe. It seems like the Soaring Dragon Realm has a lot of realms under them.”
Jian Wuya looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Mister, do you need to prepare anything? If you need anything, let us know. This is for the realm, so we will give you all of our support.”
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “I’ll see you in two days.” After he said that, he disappeared from the hall.
