Chapter 1968 – Demonstrate
After looking at the Imperial Beast Sect’s branch hall for a while, Zhao Hai entered. Although the Imperial Beast Sect’s branch hall was a tall tower, its inside was similar to the Tyrant Blade Sect’s branch hall. The first floor was also dedicated to tasks with three counters.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and walked towards the task board and looked through it. Before long, he noticed the rewards of the tasks and understood why there were so many people who have beasts in the city.
Zhao Hai also noticed that the staff in the branch hall were looking at him with unfriendly looks.
The staff should have figured out Zhao Hai’s identity. However, he didn’t care. According to the rules of Soaring Dragon Realm, sect disciples weren’t allowed to make a move against people from the lower realms. The Imperial Beast Sect should also be subjected to the same rules.
After walking around the branch hall for a couple of minutes, Zhao Hai turned around and left. By this point, the staff of the hall were looking at Zhao Hai with fiery looks. They understood that Zhao Hai was taunting them.
The people of the Imperial Beast Sect should already be aware that the competition between their sect and the Tyrant Blade Sect has begun. They even sent a few people to attack the people of the Tyrant Blade Sect. Originally, they thought that they had the upper hand. But with Zhao Hai blatantly showing himself inside their branch hall, they suddenly felt that their faces were being slapped.
Seeing Zhao Hai walk out, the people of the Imperial Beast Sect immediately informed their unofficial disciples so that they could prepare to intercept him.
Zhao Hai didn’t care what the Imperial Beast Sect would do. He was going to look for Black Rock Leather now. No matter what, it was something that he needed to do. He was now waiting for the Imperial Beast Sect’s response. Zhao Hai believed that they definitely would not let him off.
Not long after Zhao Hai left Yushou City, he arrived in Beast Tooth Mountain and easily collected Black Rock Leather. After completing his task, Zhao Hai walked around the mountain. He didn’t want to leave since he was waiting for people to arrive.
Before long, the figures of five people were seen on Beast Tooth Mountain. Through the Space, Zhao Hai looked at these five people. Of the five people, two were actually female. One of them wore royal-blue robes and had a frosty look on their face. She had the imposing aura of royalty.
The other female cultivator was the opposite. She wore fiery red armor. And her clothes were very short. Her armor skirts were also short. However, the boots she wore were quite long, only revealing a small amount of her shiny white thighs. Her top was only enough to cover her breasts, showing her navel.
The remaining three were men, of which two were sword cultivators. The two sword cultivators carried the same type of long black sword, they seem to be from the same sect. As for the last person, he was two meters tall and was covered in beast skin. He had the uncombed hair of a wild man. Most importantly, beside this two-meter man was a tiger that had the aura of a king of beasts.
The five were obviously together. Moreover, it looked like they had cooperated for some time. What surprised Zhao Hai the most was that the group was headed by the wild-looking man.
Although the group arrived in Beast Tooth Mountain, they didn’t immediately seek Zhao Hai out. Instead, they gathered halfway up the mountain. Then their leader said, “That guy hasn’t left since entering Beast Tooth Mountain. We’ll look for him separately. Our distance to each other should not exceed a kilometer. If you encounter a beast, don’t attack it. Try to avoid it.”
The others nodded and then dispersed. Seeing this, Zhao Hai smiled faintly. He has no intention of running away. He found a tree and laid down beneath as he looked at the sky. At the same time, he took out a bottle of liquor to drink.
Not long after Zhao Hai began drinking liquor, he felt his metal disc vibrate. Then he said, “You’re finally here. I was afraid that my liquor would run out before you arrived.”
The five already surrounded Zhao Hai. The leader looked at Zhao Hai and sneered, “You have guts. But to a cultivator, having too much confidence is not good. Being overconfident is no different tfrom being foolish.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I wondered how the two cultivators from the Tyrant Blade Sect died. As it turns out, they have been surrounded. What a letdown. There’s no meaning in dealing with people like you.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, the complexion of the five changed. Their leader coldly snorted and said, “Your tongue is slick. As long as we kill you, the method does not matter. Everyone, let’s stop wasting time on him.” After he said that, the two-meter tall man formed a claw with his two hands. At the same time, his tiger growled and was ready to pounce. The tiger was glaring at Zhao Hai.
The two sword cultivators took their swords out. Their swords were completely black which made them look unusual. As for the royal-looking woman, she took out a ribbon that slithered around her body like a snake. The other female cultivator took out two fiery daggers and held them in each hand.
Seeing the group of five getting ready to fight, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Good, you’re prepared. Then let’s begin.”
The tall man roared and threw himself towards Zhao Hai. His claw-like hands stretched out, targeting Zhao Hai’s shoulders. On his side was his tiger whose target was Zhao Hai’s feet.
The two sword cultivators waved their swords, intending to slash Zhao Hai’s body in half. Meanwhile, the two female cultivators seem to be waiting before making a move.
Seeing the coordination between the five, Zhao Hai waved his hand and took out the vermillion bird stamp and the black tortoise stamp. Water and fire appeared and attacked the tall man. At the same time, Zhao Hai took his blade out and blocked the attack of the sword cultivators.
Three clashes were immediately heard. The tall man and his tiger were sent back by the water and fire. Meanwhile, the two sword cultivators were driven back by Zhao Hai’s blade.
At this time, a growl was heard as a fiery-red figure charged towards Zhao Hai. Seeing this, Zhao Hai waved his blade, blocking the successive attacks of the daggers. As the red female attacked, her attack speed continued to increase.
While Zhao Hai was dealing with the red-clothed female, he suddenly felt a tightening on his foot. Zhao Hai stared and discovered that his feet were being tied down by the blue ribbon.
Zhao Hai’s expression couldn’t help but change. He could feel that the blue ribbon was a high-grade artifact. Otherwise, it would not have been able to escape his spiritual force.
With an intention, Zhao Hai released a fire snake from the vermillion bird stamp, sending it towards the blue-robed female. At the same time, two water snakes came out of the black tortoise stamp and attacked the tall man.
While all of this was happening, Zhao Hai was dealing with the sword cultivators as well as the dagger-wielding female cultivator. At first glance, it might seem like Zhao Hai was at a disadvantage. However, he wasn’t actually hurt.
The further the battle went on, the more startled the five cultivators became. They were confident in their strengths. They didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be so strong that he could fight against five people on his own. Although he was on the defensive, he wasn’t showing any signs of being defeated.
The five cultivators knew that if they couldn’t deal with Zhao Hai today, then he would be a great menace in the future. After all, they became enemies the moment they attacked. Even if they entered the True Spirit Realm later on, this enmity would still be present. The five couldn’t help but increase the intensity of their attacks. However, Zhao Hai was still calmly defending.
Seeing that there was no progress, the tall cultivator finally said, “Everyone, let’s go all out. He cannot survive.” After he said that, he and his tiger roared at the same time. Then the tiger and the tall cultivator began to merge and became a three-meter tall being with a tiger’s head. At the same time, small snakes appeared around his body. These small snakes all charged towards Zhao Hai along with the tall cultivator.
Although the tall cultivator had turned into a tiger-man hybrid, his eyes were still clear, showing that he was in full control. This was a technique that allowed man and beast to combine, naturally it would have means to keep the cultivator’s mind intact.
Seeing their leader’s actions, the two sword cultivators stared for a moment. They clenched their teeth and bit down on their tongue, causing blood essence to sputter onto their swords. When this happened, the wailing of ghosts was heard on their swords. Before long, their swords turned into black gas that surrounded them. When the black gas vanished, the two sword cultivators were wearing ghost armor and had a double-handed sword on their hands. They also have masks on their faces that show a ghost face. The two seemed to become ghastly and evil beings.
As for the royal-dressed woman, she coldly snorted and raised her blue ribbon in the air. The sound of a phoenix cried out of the blue ribbon. Then a phoenix avatar appeared that charged towards Zhao Hai.
The dagger-wielding woman scratched her daggers, which turned them into fiery scimitars. Then she proceeded to attack Zhao Hai.
Seeing that his enemies had gone all out, Zhao Hai’s eyes shone. Then he laughed and said, “You finally showed some real skill. Interesting.” Then with an intention, Zhao Hai’s blade separated into parts and then sank into the ground around him. Zhao Hai also vanished, leaving the five cultivators inside a dome under a sea of stars.
As the five cultivators were stunned, the starry sky changed. It was divided into two sections that were fiery hot and frigidly cold. The cry of a vermillion bird and the roar of a black tortoise was also heard from the two sections.
