Chapter 1972 – Mo Si Arrives
Zhao Hai was currently strolling around Hengdao City. This time, he was going fishing. Lin Ling gave him a mission, so naturally he needs to complete it. It also wasn’t a difficult mission to complete.
Zhao Hai hasn’t seen Mo Si yet, so he could only act as bait to lure him out. Now Zhao Hai was waiting for Mo Si.
While Zhao Hai was outside Hengdao City, rumors about him also spread in the city. It said that because of his talent, Zhao Hai was going to be promoted by the Tyrant Blade Sect ahead of time.
The rumor didn’t come out immediately. It first began with rumors coming from the Great Realm of Cultivation. It mentioned Zhao Hai’s illustrious background, which would act as a foundation for the later rumors.
As soon as the rumors spread, the cultivators in Hengdao City talked about it for some time. Not a single person in Hengdao City disliked joining the Tyrant Blade Sect. Naturally, they were also aware of the difficulty of entering the sect. So upon hearing that someone was going to enter the sect under special conditions, people were naturally interested to talk about it.
At this time, more and more people were heading out of Hengdao City because they saw Zhao Hai going out to do his task. No matter what goals they have, these people wanted to find Zhao Hai.
Although Zhao Hai was already an unofficial disciple of the Tyrant Blade Sect, this doesn’t mean that he was untouchable. On the contrary, this status made Zhao Hai a huge target. If someone managed to kill Zhao Hai, then this meant that they were more excellent than him. And they were more likely to take his place in joining the Tyrant Blade Sect.
There was no fairness in the Soaring Dragon Realm. Everything was based on strength. If you can mobilize a thousand people to help you, then that would also be part of your strength. Groups upon groups of people were now heading out of Hengdao City to hunt Zhao Hai down.
Zhao Hai wasn’t worried about any of this. He continued to stroll around the vicinity of Hengdao City. Naturally, he did so in a manner where he wouldn’t be suspicious. His current task was to look for specific herbs. Nobody would find it strange if he were to go around places.
“Hahaha. I didn’t expect today to be my lucky day. Zhao Hai, I finally ran into you.” The loud voice was accompanied with a rustle of vegetation around Zhao Hai. Ten people surrounded Zhao Hai all in all. In one glance, one could see that they’re an experienced group.
Zhao Hai already noticed this group. He didn’t think that they would actually make a move. In the Soaring Dragon Realm, it was generally a bad idea to attack a lone cultivator. This was because it was hard to know if they were just acting as bait or were truly on their own. Naturally, lone cultivators were mostly acting as bait. There were very few people who would go out alone.
Zhao Hai turned his head to the people who surrounded him. They were all wearing black scholar’s robes. However, their scholarly robes looked strange on them. This was because these people were emitting a thick amount of killing intent. They were far from the scholars that Zhao Hai imagined.
Zhao Hai frowned as he looked at them and said, “Who are you, why are you surrounding me?”
The leader of the group laughed and said, “Zhao Hai, you didn’t know? Now, almost all cultivators in Hengdao City are looking for you. They say that you’re about to be admitted to the Tyrant Blade Sect. As long as we kill you, it means that I’m a better cultivator. Then I can join the Tyrant Blade Sect.”
Zhao Hai showed a frown and said, “Killing me means that you’re better? Impossible. With so many people surrounding me, how could you be better?”
The cultivator laughed and said, “As long as I kill you, who will know how many people it took? Moreover, being able to get this many people to kill you is also part of my strength.”
Zhao Hai looked at the people surrounding him, then he smiled faintly and said, “Do you really think that you can deal with me? I attracted the attention of the Tyrant Blade Sect because of my own strength.”
After he said that, Zhao Hai didn’t wait for the enemy to respond as he vanished in place. The cultivators surrounding Zhao Hai were stunned, then their leader shouted, “Not good. A spatial ability! That kid has a spatial ability. Be careful, don’t be caught off-guard.” After he said that, the group quickly got closer to each other to prevent Zhao Hai from attacking them from behind.
Zhao Hai wasn’t in the mood to fight. He has no interest in these people. They weren’t his goal, so he didn’t bother with them.
Zhao Hai appeared around a hundred kilometers away from the ambushers. As soon as he appeared, he suddenly felt the space around him freeze. It was as if the space has been sealed. Zhao Hai tried to use his portable transmission formation and found out that it couldn’t be used.
At this time, Zhao Hai saw a person slowly approaching him. Seeing this person, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. This was because this person was also bringing a metal disc. And like Zhao Hai, this person was wearing his metal disc on his waist.
This person was about 1.8 meters tall and wore a warrior’s robe. He had neatly groomed hair and looked youthful. He didn’t have any weapons on his body. This meant that he wasn’t a sword cultivator or a blade cultivator. This person had a smile on his face and looked both gentle and elegant.
However, the moment he saw this person, Zhao Hai’s pupils shrank. This was because this person was emitting a very strong killing aura. It was a killing aura that indicated that he killed more than a thousand people. Because there was no way to hide such a heavy aura, it became faintly visible. People could also smell a hint of blood in the air.
Zhao Hai looked at the approaching person and wore a wary expression on his face, then he asked, “Who are you? Did you set this formation?”
The person smiled faintly and then cupped his fist and said, “I forgot to introduce myself. This one is called Mo Si, an unofficial disciple of the Tyrant Blade Sect.”
Zhao Hai loosened his expression as he cupped his fist as well as he said, “So it’s someone from the same side. I’ve been impolite. May I know why you set this formation up?”
Mo Si smiled as he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Zhao Hai, I really don’t know why you’re valued by the Tyrant Blade Sect. You’re too naive. How could you have reached this point without knowing why I stopped you. Do you need to ask? I’m here to kill you. You wouldn’t be too naive to think that other unofficial disciples of the Tyrant Blade Sect wouldn’t kill you, right?”
Zhao Hai changed his complexion as he exclaimed, “Why? We’re both going to join the Tyrant Blade Sect, why would you kill me? We don’t have conflicts of interest.”
Mo Si laughed and said, “It seems like you’re not aware of the situation. How pitiful. Alright, let me show you a little bit of mercy. After I kill you, I will have ten metal discs on me. Then I can use the metal discs to join the Tyrant Blade Sect and take an elder as a master. And I don’t have to become an ordinary outer disciple of the Tyrant Blade Sect.”
Zhao Hai stared, then his expression changed, “How could that happen? Impossible. The ten discs you need to collect must come from the enemy. Metal discs from allies can’t be counted.”
“Hahaha. You’re really naive. Who told you that it needs to be metal discs of the enemy? No matter where it came from, as long as you have ten metal discs, you can join the Tyrant Blade Sect and become an elder’s disciple. Zhao Hai, you should be thankful. You won’t be an ignorant ghost when you die.”
At this moment, Zhao Hai sneered and said, “You’re confident that you can deal with me? Even ten people couldn’t deal with me. You alone won’t be a problem. Although you’ve sealed the surrounding space, it will disappear once I kill you.”
“Hahaha. You’re really naive. Zhao Hai do you think that I’m not prepared? Don’t you find it strange why I can appear here and prepare a sealing formation? Do you think that you can still summon your Undead? Zhao Hai, you’ll die today.”
When Zhao Hai heard this, he changed his expression as he looked at Mo Si and said, “How did you know that I can summon Undead? Impossible, nobody from the Great Realm of Cultivation will betray me.”
“Hahaha. They might not betray you, but you’re very famous in the Great Realm of Cultivation. The people of the Great Realm of Cultivation would proudly talk about you as long as you’re polite to them. Zhao Hai, you’re too talented. And because of this talent, you will die.”
Zhao Hai suddenly sneered and said, “You’re telling me all of these things to damage my confidence. But did you expect that it would work? Mo Si, you should know that cultivators focus on the mind and heart. Your tactics won’t work on me.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mo Si’s expression changed, then he laughed and said, “Zhao Hai, you’re really a genius. Even in this situation, I still can’t shake your heart. But it doesn’t matter. Today, you shall die!” As he said that, a flying sword appeared in Mo Si’s hand and he sent it towards Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai also waved his hand and took out a long blade. At the same time, he threw himself towards Mo Si. Mo Si also moved, but he backed away from Zhao Hai. He took another artifact out. It was a golden bell that covered his body. He was also standing on another flying sword that increased his speed. As all that happened, the flying sword that Mo Si sent over has reached Zhao Hai.
