BTFTLIAW – Chapter 1967


Chapter 1967 – Blatantly Showing Himself

As he looked at Zhao Hai’s departing back, Lin Ling turned his head to Xiang Ying and said, “Junior Brother, don’t you think it’s too dangerous for Zhao Hai to do this? If something happens to him, our losses would be huge. This kid can refine pills and artifacts. He’s a rare talent.”

Xiang Ying frowned and said, “Forget it. He seems to be confident. Let’s leave him be while we pay attention. He can get cloud iron ores on his own, so he should be very strong. Don’t forget, Feng Lingyun already confirmed that Zhao Hai didn’t take anyone from the Great Realm of Cultivation, he did the task alone. You should know how difficult this task is. Even you and I would need to exert some effort to mine the ores. If he really has the ability, then nobody from the lower realms can do anything to him.”

Lin Ling nodded, “If he can deal with the talents of the other sects, then our Tyrant Blade Sect would benefit a lot.”

Xiang Ying smiled faintly and said, “Any sect would want to steal such a talent. Let’s see how he does.”

After coming out of the Tyrant Blade Sect’s branch hall, Zhao Hai immediately used his portable transmission formation to go to Shangshan City. Upon appearing, he called Zhang Feng. They were still doing their tasks while Yuan Ba and the others were guarding the base.

Zhao Hai used his portable transmission formation once more and appeared on the Great Realm of Cultivation’s base. Seeing that Zhao Hai has returned, Yuan Ba and the others immediately went forward to greet them.

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Yuan Ba, how has it been? You’re the one guarding the base this time?”

Yuan Ba smiled and said, “Team Leader, it’s my turn today. It has been great lately. I just finished two tasks. They’re a little difficult, but the beasts along the way weren’t very strong.”

Zhao Hai nodded ,”Good. Then I can rest assured. Here, this is what I earned from my recent task. Keep it for the base.”

After saying that, Zhao Hai handed two spatial bags to Yuan Ba. Upon receiving the spatial bags and inspecting the contents, Yuan Ba’s complexion changed. Then he said, “Team Leader, what tasks did you take? Why is there so much money?”

Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Don’t ask. This is something you can’t do in the meantime. And even if you get stronger later on, you still shouldn’t do it. It’s very dangerous. Right, I won’t be able to return regularly in the future. I just received a special task.”

Yuan Ba looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Special task? What task is it?”

Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “Don’t ask, you can’t take it anyway. Right, how is the realm doing?”

Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Yuan Ba seemed to have understood something, so he immediately nodded and said, “After relaying news about you, everyone was very happy. I heard that they’re building a statue of you.”

Hearing this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. Then he said, “They’re making a statue of me? I’m still alive, why build a statue for me? Tell them to stop making useless things.”

Yuan Ba laughed and said, “That can’t happen. This is something the entire Great Realm of Cultivation decided to do. Your statue will stand beside the Battle Sword Monument. You can’t stop them no matter what you say. In any case, you won’t be returning there soon.”

Zhao Hai smiled bitterly as he shook his head, “Alright, then let’s leave them be. I should go now. A lot of people are paying attention to me recently. It won’t be good if I was seen here.”

Hearing Zhao Hai, Yuan Ba couldn’t help but ask, “Team Leader, are you in trouble?”

Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “There’s no trouble. You don’t have to worry. But this special task is issued by the Tyrant Blade Sect for its unofficial disciples.”

Yuan Ba nodded and no longer asked. He knew that Zhao Hai was now half a step into the True Spirit Realm. As long as there was no accident, he would become a true disciple of the True Spirit Realm. Naturally, the tasks he would take would be something the Yuan Ba and the others wouldn’t be able to get soon.

Zhao Hai looked at Yuan Ba and said, “Take care of yourself well. In the future, we’ll reunite in the True Spirit Realm. Tell the others what I said when they return.”

Yuan Ba nodded, then he suddenly remembered something as he said, “Team Leader, you gave so much money, but what about you? You should keep some for yourself.”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Don’t worry, I’m not short on money. You keep it and spend it for the base.” After he said that, a flash of white light appeared on the base as Zhao Hai disappeared. 

While Zhao Hai was leaving, the feeling of excitement in Yuan Ba’s heart didn’t disappear. After some time, he sighed and then looked at the others before saying, “We should try harder. The Team Leader has created such a good environment for us. It would be unfair to him if we don’t get results.”

Everyone nodded. They were also moved by Zhao Hai’s progress. They didn’t expect that although Zhao Hai was already half step into the True Spirit Realm, he still gave them a lot of money. This wasn’t something that anyone could do.

Zhao Hai returned directly to his residence in Hengdao City. Only Zhao Hai could use a portable transmission formation to arrive at his residence. Even if other people have the coordinates, they wouldn’t be able to use it.

Zhao Hai rested for a day in his residence. The next day, as though nothing happened, Zhao Hai went to the Tyrant Blade Sect’s branch hall to look for tasks he could complete.

The branch hall’s staff knew that the metal disc dangling on Zhao Hai’s waist wasn’t for decoration. This meant that a new round of competition had begun. Their expressions couldn’t help but change. They didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be this blatant in showing his metal disc.

Upon arriving at the counter, Zhao Hai scanned the available tasks and before long he saw one he could take. It wasn’t a dangerous task. It only involved looking for a medicinal material. This material wasn’t very hard to find since it was abundant in the Soaring Dragon Realm. This medicinal material was called Rock Leather. This material could be found on the mountains of the realm. However, this task was quite special. It required a special Rock Leather from Beast Tooth Mountain called Black Rock Leather.

Although Black Rock Leather could only be found in Beast Tooth Mountain, the mountain itself wasn’t very dangerous. Moreover, Beast Tooth Mountain was very close to Yushou City(Imperial Beast City). With no ferocious beasts close by, it was a task that could be done by common cultivators.

Zhao Hai felt that this task was very suitable for him. The new round of competition has begun. Yushou City was the city built by the Imperial Beast Sect. If Zhao Hai took this task, he would definitely meet people chosen by the Imperial Beast Sect.

Zhao Hai went to the female cultivator and said, “Hello. I have to trouble you. I want to take on the task of collecting Black Rock Leather.”

Hearing Zhao Hai, the female cultivator on the counter couldn’t help but stare. He looked at Zhao Hai with a confused expression on her face as she said, “You want to take that task? Getting Black Rock Leather from Beast Tooth Mountain? Are you joking?”

Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I’m not. I want to take on this task.”

The female cultivator looked at Zhao Hai as though he was an idiot. After some time, she pointed towards the metal disc on Zhao Hai’s waist and said, “Do you know what that represents? You didn’t just pick it up, did you?”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I know what it represents. That’s the reason I took this task. I’m going to tell the people of the Imperial Beast Sect that I’m going to start hunting them down.”

Hearing Zhao Hai, the female cultivator’s eyes shone. She looked at Zhao Hai and said, “I appreciate your courage. But isn’t this too rash? That’s the territory of the Imperial Beast Sect.”

Zhao Hai smiled and said, “As long as the people defending the Imperial Beast Sect don’t move, I can guarantee my safety. Please confirm my task.”

When the female cultivator heard Zhao Hai, she couldn’t help but nod. She received Zhao Hai’s jade token and recorded the task. After Zhao Hai received his jade token back, he cupped his fist towards the female cultivator and then left.

Looking at Zhao Hai’s departing back, the female cultivator muttered, “Good luck.”

At this time, at the second floor of the Tyrant Blade Sect’s branch hall, the Yin Yang Elders looked at Zhao Hai as the left and went to the transmission formation.

The Yang Elder chuckled as he said, “What a kid. I’m liking him more and more. Senior Brother, how long has it been since we’ve seen a kid as interesting as him?”

The Yin Elder smiled and said, “It has been a long time. The kid actually went to Yushou City. Those guys from the Imperial Beast Sect will be so pissed off. This kid is really confident. But that’s alright. I reckon the Imperial Beast Sect and the Sword Hegemon Sect will be more behaved once this kid makes a move.”

The Yang Elder looked at the Yin Elder and said, “Senior Brother, aren’t you worried about the kid’s safety? You should know that those guys at the Imperial Beast Sect are rascals. They would break rules if they feel like it. If they made a move on Zhao Hai, he would be in great danger.”

The Yin Elder smiled and said, “You think I don’t know that? Do you know why I asked Lin Ling to give Zhao Hai the metal disc? It’s because I left my blade qi inside that metal disc. If those guys from the Imperial Beast Sect dared to take action against Zhao Hai, then my blade qi will welcome them. It has been a long time since my blade has tasted blood.”

Hearing the Yin Elder, the Yang Elder stared, then he said, “So you’ve already made arrangements. That’s good. I really want to see what those people from the Imperial Beast Sect would look like when they see your blade qi. Hahaha. The two of us slaughtered five of the Seven Birds of the Imperial Beast Sect. They hated us to death for that.”

The Yin Elder also chuckled. This was the proudest moment of the Yin Yang Elders. At that time, the two of them were only inner disciples of the Tyrant Blade Sect. But they were already well known. Back then, the Imperial Beast Sect had seven people who were more famous than the two. Because the beasts used by these seven people were all birds, they were titled as the Seven Birds.

Later on, when the two went out for a mission, they met the Imperial Beast Sect’s Seven Birds. At that time, the Seven Birds were so arrogant. They looked down on the two. Both sides entered into a conflict which caused the Yin Yang Elders to kill five of the Seven Birds. After that battle, they were known as the Yin Yang Ghost Blades. This battle became the most memorable battle of their life.

The Yin Elder looked at the transmission formation and said, “Everything will depend on that kid’s luck. If he can come back alive and join the Tyrant Blade Sect, I’ll accept him as a disciple. The two of us will teach him together. Then we’ll unleash him to the world. Let them know that the disciple of the Yin Yang Ghost Blades could also turn the world upside down.” The Yang Elder nodded with bright eyes. Now that they were aware of Zhao Hai’s talent, they naturally wouldn’t let him go.

At this moment, Zhao Hai appeared in Yushou City. When first appeared, Zhao Hai was stunned. Compared to Hengdao City, Yushou City was completely different. Yushou City was built with large rocks that weren’t even polished. There was also moss growing on top of the rocks. From time to time, stone pillars jutted out from the street. The stone pillars were engraved with animal heads, making it look hideous. There were a lot of people walking around the city that had their own subordinate beasts with them. This caused Zhao Hai to be surprised.

Yushou City was definitely the domain of the Imperial Beast Sect. However, this place shouldn’t be all dominated by the people of the Imperial Beast Sect. How come there were a lot of people walking with their beasts? 

What Zhao Hai didn’t know was that there was something special with Yushou City. Tasks given by the Imperial Beast Sect included simple beast-taming techniques. They weren’t too profound and could only be used against normal beasts. However, to those from the lower realms, this beast-taming technique was very good. The beasts can help them during battles and were also very loyal. Because of this, a lot of cultivators in Yushou City would use the beast-taming technique to tame their own beasts. This caused the current scene where almost everyone had a beast with them.

Zhao Hai didn’t know this, but he didn’t really care if these people brought their beasts with them or not. In any case, they weren’t a threat to him.

Zhao Hai didn’t immediately go out of the city to complete his task. Instead, he walked around the city and explored. By the end, he arrived at the Imperial Beast Sect’s branch hall. The branch hall of the Imperial Beast Sect was a tall tower with reliefs of beasts engraved on its walls. It looked like a giant totem pole.

Zhao Hai stood outside the branch hall and looked at it. To be honest, the reliefs engraved on the tower weren’t that beautiful. However, the images shown expressed the true aura of the beasts. It can be seen that the master who engraved these reliefs was also someone who has a deep understanding of beasts.
