Chapter 1951 – Skillfully Dealing With A Fire Scorpion
Laws were something that one couldn’t see and touch, but it could be felt. Just like the time when Zhao Hai became stronger in the Ark Continent or the Divine Realm. He knew he could no longer stay because the laws were repelling him. Zhao Hai couldn’t see the laws nor touch them, but he could feel it repelling him.
Before Zhao Hai became an immortal expert, liquid silver was repelled by the Soaring Dragon Realm. This was due to the realm’s laws. Any realm has its own laws. And if your strength was outside the limits of those laws, then the realm would repel you.
But Zhao Hai didn’t expect the laws to strengthen everything inside a realm. This meant that the laws were more powerful in the Soaring Dragon Realm.
After thinking through these things, Zhao Hai’s expression became sullen. If everything in the Soaring Dragon Realm was strengthened, then what about the True Spirit Realm? The True Spirit Realm was a higher realm compared to the Soaring Dragon Realm. It can be said that the reason the people of the True Spirit Realm sent those from the lower realms to the Soaring Dragon Realm first was to make them adapt to the environment of the True Spirit Realm in advance.
In other words, the environment of the True Spirit Realm was similar to the Soaring Dragon Realm, but much stronger. Zhao Hai was sure that if average immortal experts don’t pay attention, they would be harmed if they were hit by the lava of the volcano. It seems like the tasks had hidden motives. Everyone needs to be more careful.
At this time, Zhao Hai felt a vague spiritual fluctuation. He couldn’t help but stare, then he immediately understood that he met a fire scorpion.
Zhao Hai reduced the speed of the Hell King’s Ship and slowly moved towards the spiritual fluctuation. Zhao Hai doesn’t dare to be careless. The beasts in the Soaring Dragon Realm aren’t easy to deal with.
Before long, Zhao Hai detected the location of the fire scorpion. The fire scorpion was hidden under a rock on the volcano. The rock was quite large and there was a hollow area beneath it, this is the hiding spot of the fire scorpion.
Zhao Hai could clearly see the fire scorpion. He originally thought that fire scorpions were red. But now, it seems like this wasn’t the case. It might be due to the frequent eruptions of the volcano, but its surroundings were covered in ash, making it look black. Therefore, the fire scorpions were also black, only the top of their tails were red.
Not counting their tails, fire scorpions were three meters long and a meter tall. It also had huge claws. Although it was lying in place without moving, Zhao Hai didn’t doubt its combat strength.
Zhao Hai didn’t do anything to the fire scorpion. He carefully circled around without attracting its attention. At the same time, he was scanning for other fire scorpions around him. Fortunately, there were none. The ore that Zhao Hai was looking for was right above the fire scorpion. As long as the fire scorpion was dealt with, he could cut out a piece of the rock and then his task would be completed.
The task of finding ores wasn’t difficult. As long as a meter square of ore was found, the task would be completed. Although the ore couldn’t be found anywhere else, it was abundant around the volcano. Besides the danger imposed by the fire scorpions, the task was actually very easy.
Knowing that no other fire scorpions would be coming over soon, Zhao Hai felt relieved. Then he controlled the Hell King’s Ship to go towards the fire scorpions. When he was a kilometer away from the fire scorpion, Zhao Hai stopped and waved his hand. The Hell King’s Ship emerged from the ground and was immediately put away by Zhao Hai.
This time, Zhao Hai didn’t hide himself. He pretended to be unaware and flew forward. At the same time, he made his spiritual fluctuations more noticeable. This way, the fire scorpion wouldn’t have any suspicions as to how he appeared.
Zhao Hai knows that the beasts of the Soaring Dragon Realm were intelligent. If you wanted to deceive them, then you would have to act flawlessly.
The fire scorpion didn’t suspect Zhao Hai even a bit. It observed Zhao Hai as he got closer. Then when Zhao Hai arrived by the rock, the fire scorpion could no longer wait, it emerged from its pit and attacked Zhao Hai.
However, just after the fire scorpion went out of its pit, it was immediately covered by a metal net. Once it was ignited, the net shrank, trapping the fire scorpion inside. The fire scorpion tried to struggle but it couldn’t break free. It was soon dragged away and disappeared in a blink of an eye. Naturally, the fire scorpion was dragged to the Space, enriching the living beings inside it once more.
Zhao Hai quickly took some ores and sent them to the Space. Once he was done, he immediately used his portable transmission formation and vanished.
This was also the reason why portable transmission formations were very valuable in the Soaring Dragon Realm. Without portable transmission formations, one would need to retrace their path back to the city. But with the portable transmission formations, one could immediately return after completing the task. This effectively halved the potential dangers one could experience.
Zhao Hai didn’t immediately return to Wulong City. Instead, he went to Hengdao City first. It must be known that the range of portable transmission formations were limited. Naturally, the stronger you are, the farther you could travel. With Zhao Hai’s present strength, it’s impossible for him to return directly to Wulong City. He could only go to Hengdao City first and then back to Wulong City.
Zhao Hai could use the Space to return to Wulong City, but he didn’t do that. He knew that he was being observed. If he used the Space, then he might attract suspicion. No matter how formidable a divergent ability was, it shouldn’t be more powerful than a realm’s laws. People from the True Spirit Realm were formidable. If they discovered the Space, then Zhao Hai would be finished. Therefore, Zhao Hai would rather be cautious than risk being discovered.
After a flash of white light, Zhao Hai’s figure appeared in Hengdao City. Just like before, Lin Ling got word about Zhao Hai’s return. Hearing that Zhao Hai was safe, Lin Ling relaxed. When Zhao Hai left using the transmission formation, Lin Ling wasn’t worried. Since Zhao Hai was able to safely return, then this means that he would be safe wherever he goes.
When Zhao Hai returned to Wulong City, he immediately went to Flame Mountain Sect’s branch hall. Once he arrived at the branch hall, he couldn’t help but stare. This was because Zhang Feng and the others were waiting for him there. Seeing him come, Zhang Feng and the others were relieved.
Upon knowing that Zhang Feng and the others were waiting for him for two hours, Zhao Hai was a bit moved. However, he didn’t show it, he looked at Zhang Feng and the others and said, “Everyone, go to the tavern first. Wait for me there. I’ll go after I hand the task over.” Everyone nodded and then went to a tavern next to the Flaming Mountain Sect.
After entering the branch, Zhao Hai went to the counter and said, “Good day, I’m here to hand over the task.”
The person on the counter nodded and said, “Take your jade card out.” Zhao Hai took out his jade card and handed it over. The person nodded and said, “Take out the task requirement.” Zhao Hai did as he said.
The person nodded, “Good. Perfect score.” Then he gave Zhao Hai the full amount of impression points. He also gave Zhao Hai an ‘excellent’ rating.
Newcomer tasks usually had very high evaluations. As long as it was completed well, the evaluation wouldn’t be low. This was also an encouragement to newcomers. But after doing ten tasks, this preferential treatment would no longer be available. The requirements for tasks would become stricter. If Zhao Hao already did ten newcomer tasks, then his evaluation wouldn’t have been excellent.
After dealing with his task, Zhao Hai went out of the Flame Mountain Sect’s branch and then entered the tavern nearby. Zhang Feng and the others were already waiting for him. After he entered, Zhang Feng immediately called him over. Once Zhao Hai was settled, Zhang Feng asked, “Little Hai, how did your task go? Are you fine?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It went well. Don’t worry, I’m fine. How about you? Did you meet fire scorpions?”
When Zhang Feng first saw Zhao Hai, he knew that nothing happened to him, so he smiled and said, “It went well. A fire scorpion attacked us, but we dealt with it. We were also able to sell the remains of the fire scorpion to the Flame Mountain Sect.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “That’s good. Right, from tomorrow on, we’ll be taking different tasks. I won’t take the same tasks as you. You don’t have to worry about me, I’ll take care of myself.”
Zhang Feng knew that this decision was coming. He can only sigh as he said, “Alright, but remember that your life is most important. As long as you join a top sect, our Great Realm of Cultivation will prosper.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Don’t worry, a lot of people want to kill me, but I’m still here. None of them succeeded.” Zhang Feng nodded and no longer said anything.
The group continued to drink wine. Looking at the time, Zhao Hai said, “It’s time to return to the base.” Everyone stood up and then paid their bill before leaving.
After returning to the base and greeting everyone, Zhao Hai returned to the Space. When he entered the villa, Zhao Hai sat on the sofa with his eyes glued to the screen.
Laura looked at Zhao Hai in confusion and said, “Brother Hai, what’s wrong?”
Zhao Hai looked at Laura and said, “It’s fine. I just thought of something. Cai’er, I have something for you to do. From now on, begin collecting all types of things in the Soaring Dragon Realm, from plants, to animals, and even rocks. Everything in the Soaring Dragon Realm, the Space needs to have it as well.”
