Chapter 1913 – Pressuring An Immortal Expert
Mo Zhentian and the others quietly listened to Zhao Hai’s words. Although what he said was somewhat vague, they understood what he meant. Zhao Hai wanted to tell them that he didn’t have a grudge against the Heavenly Demons, and he also hinted that he helped them.
With who Zhao Hai was, Mo Zhentian and the others believed his words. In their opinion, Zhao Hai wasn’t someone who would lie about this matter.
After Zhao Hai finished speaking, Mo Zhentian looked at him and said, “What Mister said is the truth. But I still am not clear about the business that you want to do with us.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “All of you should already be aware that I am a spatial ability user. However, my ability is different compared to the others. I can freely go back and forth between the Great Realm of Cultivation and the Heavenly Demon Realm. I really have no malice towards the Heavenly Demon Race. Otherwise, even if you retreated to the Heavenly Demon Realm, I can still hunt you down.”
As soon as they heard Zhao Hai, Mo Zhentian and the others stared. Then their complexions turned ugly. They believed Zhao Hai because his mere presence in front of them was proof. This caused them to be more cautious about Zhao Hai’s ability. Being able to enter the Heavenly Demon Realm whenever he wants was a huge threat to the Heavenly Demons.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone’s expressions and then smiled faintly as he added, “I no longer have any intentions of fighting. Moreover, cooperating with each other would be more beneficial for the two realms. Both of our realms have unique materials that don’t exist in the other. If we can cooperate, we can increase our strength. I just want to do business to sell resources from both realms. What do you think?”
Mo Zhentian and the others immediately understood. They couldn’t help but look down and ponder. They thought about the feasibility of Zhao Hai’s idea.
At this time, Mo Potian, who hasn’t spoken since the beginning, said, “I don’t agree.”
Zhao Hai looked at Mo Potian in confusion. Then he smiled and said, “Why does Mister disagree?”
Mo Potian sneered, “I just don’t agree. You’re someone from the Great Realm of Cultivation, but you want to do business with the Heavenly Demon Realm. Tell me, what is your true goal? Do you want to know the secrets of my Heavenly Demon Realm?”
When Mo Zhentian and the others heard this, all of them looked at Zhao Hai with vigilance. Zhao Hai looked at Mo Potian and said, “Know the secrets of the Heavenly Demon Realm? You’re looking down on me. Back when I participated in the Heavenly Demon Trial, I already noticed the abnormalities of the Heavenly Demon Realm. I guessed that you are going to invade the Great Realm of Cultivation. Do you think that my Undead are a joke? Let me tell you the truth, I already know most of the terrain of the Heavenly Demon Realm, including the Sacred Demon Sect. I might not know about the forbidden areas, but those are irrelevant. I don’t care about the Heavenly Demon Realm. My goal is the Soaring Dragon Realm and the realms above it.”
Mo Potian sneered and said, “What nonsense. If you really knew the Heavenly Demon Realm, you wouldn’t have come here.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and waved his hand, taking out an astrolabe. Astrolabes were used by the Great Realm of Cultivation as maps. It was quite common.
Zhao Hai shook the astrolabe. Before long, a map appeared above the astrolabe. Mo Zhentian and the others couldn’t understand what they were looking at in the beginning. But as time passed, their complexion paled. This was because the map that Zhao Hai showed was actually the map of the Heavenly Demon Realm. Moreover, it wasn’t just the map of the occupied areas of the Heavenly Demon Realm, but a map of the entire realm itself.
The Sacred Demon Sect doesn’t even have a map of the entire Heavenly Demon Realm. Because of its difficulty, the Sacred Demon Sect would find it difficult to do so. Main halls as well as some secret areas couldn’t be mapped, otherwise the other sects would see it as a provocation. And now Zhao Hai has provided a full map of the realm. It would be hard for Mo Zhentian and the others to not be surprised.
The Heavenly Demons couldn’t help but wipe a cold sweat. If Zhao Hai used this map to attack the Heavenly Demon Realm, then the Heavenly Demon Realm would be helpless against him.
As everyone was stunned, Mo Potian suddenly jumped up and tried to grab Zhao Hai with his claws. His grab carried a huge momentum, it was clear that he was using all of his strength.
Mo Zhentian and the others were stunned. Then their complexion changed. They didn’t expect Mo Potian to make a sudden move on Zhao Hai. It was already too late for them to stop him.
Zhao Hai also noticed Mo Potian’s action. This Mo Potian always looked at him unfavorably. As he spoke, there was a hint of killing intent in his eyes. Zhao Hai knew that this person had murderous thoughts towards him. However, he didn’t expect that Mo Potian would make a move at this moment.
However, Zhao Hai wasn’t afraid of him. If Zhao Hai could only defend against immortal experts in the past, then the current Zhao Hai wasn’t no longer afraid of them. His combat methods have improved compared to before. Even if he has yet to reach the immortal stage, it would be hard for an immortal expert to deal with him.
Zhao Hai already sparred with the immortal-level Undead of the Space. He could already fight against multiple of them on his own. It’s clear that the unification of his divergent abilities and combat techniques have made him more formidable.
Looking at Mo Potian’s claw attack, Zhao Hai sent a punch using his left hand. The punch came out without the slightest sound. However, the punch looked extremely heavy.
Mo Potian felt that before his claws touched Zhao Hai’s fist, there was a huge wall of resistance in front of him. After his claws broke through the resistance, the strength he sent out has been reduced by more than a half. Then at this moment, Zhao Hai’s fist came in contact with his claw. Mo Potian’s body flickered as he immediately flew back. Meanwhile, Zhao Hai’s body shook a few times after he repelled Mo Potian’s attack.
Both sides turned out to be even. But to be precise, Zhao Hai had the upper hand. Nobody expected this. Mo Zhentian and the others looked at Zhao Hai in shock.
When Mo Potian landed, he immediately roared and charged towards Zhao Hai. It was clear that he was embarrassed by the previous clash. He was an immortal expert and yet a transcending tribulation expert was able to gain an upper hand against him. How could he bear it? The only thing in Mo Potian’s mind at this time was to kill Zhao Hai.
Mo Zhentian and the others tried to call Mo Potian to stop. However, Mo Potian was already swallowed by his rage, he didn’t hear them at all. But it was apparent that Mo Zhentian and the others didn’t really want to stop him. They were also feeling threatened by Zhao Hai.
How could Zhao Hai be unaware of what Mo Zhentian and the others were thinking? However, he didn’t care. Back in the Space, he always held back against Julie and the Undead. But now that Mo Potian was going all out against him, he wanted to gain more experience fighting a real enemy. This would allow him to make his combat technique more perfect.
Although the space inside the hall was big, it was still cramped compared to the outdoors. Moreover, with other people present, Zhao Hai and Mo Potian’s battle area became even smaller. The two almost couldn’t use their movement techniques. They could only fight melee.
Normally, Zhao Hai would be at a disadvantage. After all, he was still at the transcending tribulation stage. In the past, he could only use his movement techniques to survive against immortal experts. Mo Zhentian and the others were aware of this. Therefore, they dared to have Mo Potian attack Zhao Hai. However, they soon found that they were mistaken. Zhao Hai’s moves were different compared to before.
Zhao Hai’s fighting technique melded beautifully with his divergent abilities. This allowed Zhao Hai more actions to use during battle. This gave him more diversity in his moves. Unlike before, Zhao Hai can now go against immortal experts in melee combat.
Both sides exchanged more than ten moves and yet Zhao Hai didn’t show any signs of being defeated. It was Mo Potian who was overwhelmed by Zhao Hai’s new and odd way of fighting, causing him to be at a disadvantage.
Just as Mo Zhentian and the others started to become worried about Mo Potian, they suddenly felt the atmosphere turn different. They felt a large number of immortal experts around them. Turning their heads, they couldn’t help but stare. This was because the room was being surrounded by immortal-level Undead. All of them were staring at the Heavenly Demons. Zhao Hai could give one order and all of them would rush over immediately.
Upon noticing this, Mo Zhentian and the others began to sweat. When they saw Zhao Hai take out the map of the Heavenly Demon Realm, they became emotional. They forgot that Zhao Hai has a lot of immortal-level Undead under his control. If Zhao Hai wanted, nobody in this room would survive to the next day.
Mo Zhentian and the others were immediately reminded that Zhao Hai wasn’t someone they could offend. Fortunately, the situation has yet to become grave. If Zhao Hai truly wanted to end their lives, they wouldn’t even have the time to worry about Mo Potian.
Thinking of this, Mo Zhentian immediately shouted, “Stop, stop immediately!” Then the group moved and flew towards the battle area. Their target wasn’t Zhao Hai but Mo Potian instead. They didn’t dare hold Zhao Hai lest they risk becoming the target of the Undead. Moreover, with Zhao Hai’s spatial ability, even if they made a move, they wouldn’t be able to catch him.
The group quickly captured Mo Potian. Seeing Mo Potian still struggling, Mo Zhentian shouted, “Mo Potian, behave yourself! Or else, you can’t blame me for crippling you.” Mo Zhentian wasn’t joking. If they can’t make Mo Potian stop, then who knows how he would continue to react towards Zhao Hai. If they didn’t cripple Mo Potian, then Zhao Hai might cripple all of them instead.
Mo Potian was still drunk from rage, but after he was shaken clear, he looked around him and understood what happened. He no longer struggled, but he still looked at Zhao Hai with rage. As he looked at Mo Potian, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “You’re quite strong. But if I wasn’t trying my new combat technique, do you think you can still stand in front of me? You’re too reckless.”
Mo Zhentian quickly said, “Mister, please don’t be offended. Mo Potian just has a very short temper. I hope you can forgive him. Please take a seat, let’s continue to discuss your business.”
Mo Zhentian began to feel regret. He was afraid that they had truly offended Zhao Hai. If Zhao Hai used his army to attack the Heavenly Demon Realm, they would truly be in great trouble. So when he spoke to Zhao Hai, he made sure to be as polite as possible.
Zhao Hai nodded and then sat down. Mo Potian was already sent out by the others. Zhao Hai waved his hand, turning the immortal-level Undead into dark mist before they vanished. Such methods caused Mo Zhentian to behave even more.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone and said, “I’m really here to do business. What do you think? This will be good for both realms. It also wouldn’t break the economy of the two realms. I’ll give you three days to consider. If you agree, please provide me with a few store locations. Whether this business becomes successful or not will depend on you. I’ll return in three days.” After he said that, Zhao Hai disappeared, leaving Mo Zhentian and the others behind.
Mo Zhentian looked at the others and said, “What do you think? Should we agree?”
One of the Heavenly Demons forced a smile before replying, “Who would dare to disagree? And just like Mister Zhao Hai said, this will benefit us as well. Why shouldn’t we agree? With resources from the Great Realm of Cultivation, the Heavenly Demon Realm would definitely become stronger.”
