Chapter 1935 – Provoking Intentionally
Shangshan city’s size was what made it one of the centers of the Soaring Dragon Realm. There were 81 big cities like Shangshan City. Big cities were established by top sects of the True Spirit Realm. The sect that established Shangshan City was called the True Dao Sect.
Each big city has a branch of a top sect. And each top sect sent a manager to take care of their matters in the Soaring Dragon Realm.
Naturally, this doesn’t mean that only the True Dao Sect has a branch in the entire city. There were also branches of medium and small sects. However, if these sects want to stay in Shangshan City, they would need to follow the rule set by the city manager. They need to protect the city’s security as well as resist the attacks of beasts.
Actually, small and medium-grade sects in Shangshan City could be very far away from the True Dao Sect in the True Spirit Realm. But for various reasons, after coming to the Soaring Dragon Realm, these sects settled in Shangshan City.
Zhao Hai’s group walked the streets of Shangshan City and looked at the cultivators around them. Some of the cultivators were entering the city while the others were leaving. But whether they were leaving or entering the city, everyone has a common characteristic. All of them were in a hurry. They were walking as though they were anxious.
Looking at these cultivators, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but sigh. Shangshan City’s environment reminded him of the metropolis cities on Earth. People in these cities walk as if they were in a hurry. They don’t have the time to pay attention to the surroundings.
Compared to the people in a hurry, Zhao Hai and the others were more relaxed. Being their first time in Shangshan city, Zhang Feng and the others took their time sight-seeing.
The people in Shangshan City also looked at Zhao Hai and the others curiously. Seeing Zhao Hai and the others, the people of Shangshan City knew that it was their first time coming to the city. They looked like bumpkins entering a huge town.
Zhao Hai didn’t care what the others thought. He slowly walked on the streets. It was possible to fly in Shangshan City. One could see cultivators flying into the city from outside.
However, Zhao Hai wasn’t anxious. As the group headed towards the gates of the city, they looked at the shops on both sides of the street. What surprised Zhao Hai was the appearance of restaurants.
Restaurants, hotels, and other such shops couldn’t be seen in the Great Realm of Cultivation. After all, the people of the Great Realm of Cultivation don’t eat. They might occasionally drink wine, but that was only for people with status. Smaller sects couldn’t get their hands on spirit wine, let alone open a hotel.
Zhang Feng and the others were also surprised by the restaurants. Seeing their expressions, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Alright, it’s time to go. Let’s complete our task first. If there’s an opportunity, let’s try to eat at one of those places.”
When Zhang Feng and the others heard what Zhao Hai said, they couldn’t help but laugh. Zhang Feng said, “We’re not ignorant. We know about these places from the jade slips about the Soaring Dragon Realm. However, food in the restaurants aren’t cheap. You can buy a lot of pills for the price of one meal. To be honest, with that kind of money, we’d rather buy cultivation materials.”
Zhao Hai bitterly smiled. He knew that he couldn’t convince Zhang Feng and the others to change their minds. Zhao Hai knew why the True Spirit Realm established restaurants and hotels in the Soaring Dragon Realm. He heard Ouyang Yu say this before. In the True Spirit Realm, everyone eats food. The restaurants and hotels in the Soaring Dragon Realm were to make the cultivators get used to eating. Unfortunately, not a lot of people understood this. Most people have the same thoughts as Zhang Feng.
One couldn’t blame Zhang Feng and the others as well. When they entered the Soaring Dragon Realm, their ultimate goal was to get recruited to a sect. And all of the money they gained doing tasks would be spent on this goal. This explains why they were unwilling to spend their spirit stones on things like restaurants and hotels.
In fact, after a long time of observation, Zhao Hai discovered that the tasks issued by the cities weren’t random. The tasks that Zhao Hai and the others were currently taking were for newcomers. Therefore, the tasks weren’t particularly difficult. Even Zhao Hai’s current task of collecting ginseng has little danger. It was only when they met Tree Demons would the task become harder.
If you cannot complete ten novice tasks, then it would be impossible for you to take on higher-level tasks. The people of the True Spirit Realm were using the Soaring Dragon Realm to introduce new blood to their sects. Rather than treating the Soaring Dragon Realm like a colosseum, they were treating the cultivators undergoing the tasks with some care.
Naturally, any trial contained risk. Even if one could enter the True Spirit Realm, they would still be faced with numerous battles. It’s impossible for them to live a peaceful life.
Regardless, the True Spirit Realm used all sorts of methods to minimize the dangers to the people in the Soaring Dragon Realm. This was also the reason why Zhao Hai wanted to enter the True Spirit Realm.
As the group was walking forward, a burst of laughter was suddenly heard from a nearby restaurant. Then a woman’s voice came, “Senior Brother, look at those cultivators. They look like bumpkins who have never been to a city before. What happened to the Soaring Dragon Realm? How can such people come in?”
As soon as they heard the voice, Zhao Hai and the others turned their heads towards the restaurant. Sitting on the outside patio of the restaurant was a man and a woman. They were currently looking at Zhao Hai’s group.
Zhao Hai looked at the clothes of the two and then smiled. He turned his head to Zhang Feng and the others and said, “Let’s go.”
Just as Zhang Feng and the others were about to turn around, the man’s voice was heard, “Junior Sister, you were right. Not only are they bumpkins, they’re also cowards. They don’t deserve to be called cultivators. Moreover, they shouldn’t be in the Soaring Dragon Realm. It seems like the Soaring Dragon Realm has run out of talents.”
Zhang Feng and the others were enraged. Just as they were about to talk, they heard Zhao Hai’s voice, “Don’t cause any trouble, let’s leave.” Then he walked away. Zhao Hai also noticed the change in the expression of the man and woman. They seem to be disappointed that their instigation has failed.
Before long, Zhao Hai and the others reached outside of the city. As they were flying, Zhang Feng turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, why did you let me scold those two? In any case, the city won’t do anything about it. They won’t dare to fight us either.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Haven’t you noticed? They’re intentionally provoking us. Moreover, they’re people from the True Dao Sect.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Zhang Feng couldn’t help but stare. He quickly replied, “True Dao Sect? The sect that established Shangshan City? Are they really disciples of that sect? But if they are, why would they provoke us?”
Zhao Hai replied, “I’m certain that they’re from the True Dao Sect. Disciples of the True Dao Sect have the character of ‘dao’ embroidered in gold on their sleeves. I’m sure of it. After all, disciples of the True Dao Sect aren’t commonly seen.”
Zhang Feng and the others’ complexions changed. To them, the True Dao Sect was a true colossus. Fortunately, they didn’t scold the man and the woman. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have any good fruit to eat. They might not be able to step foot in Shangshan City anymore. And if the disciples of the True Dao Sect fought them, it would be a slaughter. Even if they survived, they would still be kicked out of the Soaring Dragon Realm for offending the True Dao Sect.
The Soaring Dragon Realm might have a lot of rules, but these rules only apply to the people of the lower realms. For the people of the True Dao Sect, these rules were useless.
Li Kuangge frowned, then he said, “Brother Hai, why would those two disciples provoke us for no reason? We didn’t offend them. Could it be that someone from the Great Realm of Cultivation offended them in the past? But it’s the True Spirit Realm. Nobody would dare offend them. Should we ask Li Mu about this?”
Zhao Hai thought about it before he nodded and said, “We should. First Senior Brother, please ask Li Mu.”
Zhang Feng complied and then took out a communication plate and called Li Mu. Zhao Hai has to admit that the cultivation civilization of the True Spirit Realm was more advanced than the Great Realm of Cultivation. These communication plates were equivalent to jade sword messages in the Great Realm of Cultivation. These communication plates acted like mobile phones.
Before long, Zhang Feng finished inquiring Li Mu about the True Dao Sect. Zhao Hai and the others also heard the conversation. Li Mu was sure that they hadn’t offended the True Dao Sect. The Great Realm of Cultivation rarely went to Shangshan City, so how could they offend the True Dao Sect?
However, such an answer caused Zhao Hai and the others to suffer a headache. They haven’t offended the True Dao Sect, but two of their disciples were provoking them. This would be a huge problem if it wasn’t resolved.
The group’s mood immediately sank. The True Dao Sect was an existence that they couldn’t offend. If they really offended the True Dao Sect, the consequences to the Great Realm of Cultivation would be dreadful. Fortunately, Zhao Hai was attentive and stopped Zhang Feng and the others from scolding the two disciples.
