Chapter 1999 – Testing Qiu Tie
Zhao Hai cupped his fist towards Dao Shu and the others and said, “It’s nothing. I knew how to tame beasts from a long time ago. These are beasts I tamed back in the Soaring Dragon Realm. I just sent them out to help with the fight, I didn’t expect that they would be effective.”
Dao Shu laughed and said, “I’m jealous. But you sure have learned a lot of things. Be careful or else the two elders will scold you.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “These are all things I learned a long time ago. Haha. Alright, let’s head head inside and talk.” Dao Shu and the others nodded and walked inside with Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai and the others were still in resident complex 52. Only the wall of the courtyard was destroyed by the wolves when they attacked.
Fortunately, the residences weren’t completely ruined and only the robots have suffered. Although the robots were only for housework and had no fighting power, they followed their own set rules. Robots were to put human lives first before their own. Naturally, there were no such rules in combat robots. These rules were only applicable to household robots.
Because of this rule, when the robots saw the wolves attacking Dao Shu and the others, they immediately charged. Although they were getting torn to shreds, they continued to defend.
Zhao Hai planned to take the robots away to be repaired. However, he didn’t expect Dao Shu and the others to ask for the destroyed robots. When he asked, Dao Shu and the others said that they wanted to keep the robots as souvenirs.
Zhao Hai didn’t decline and gave the destroyed robots to them. Dao Shu and the others happily received the robots.
After dealing with these things, Zhao Hai and the others went to the living room to sit down. The robots that survived served them tea.
After taking a sip of his tea, Zhao Hai looked at Dao Shu and said, “Senior Brother, why did those beasts suddenly attack you?”
Dao Shu forced a smile and said, “Junior Brother, you should get used to this. Attacks like these are common in Lower Earth Mountain. We’re all used to it at this point. You should now understand why we sent our servants away. Those servants have no fighting power. If they stay here, they might die.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then his expression turned heavy. This was the first time he was worried for Qiu Tie. If beasts keep attacking in the future, then he could only use his spatial divergent ability to save Qiu Tie.
Seeing Zhao Hai’s appearance, Dao Shu smiled and said, “Alright, there’s no need to worry. Although the beasts of Black Dragon Mountain frequently attack us, these beasts aren’t very strong. If a truly powerful beast comes, the sect will send out a powerful expert to drive them back.”
Zhao Hai believed him. The Tyrant Blade Sect kept the Black Dragon Mountain because it could serve as a trial ground for the disciples. Although the Black Dragon Mountain seems to be uncontrollable, Zhao Hai believes that the Tyrant Blade Sect has enough power to keep the beasts in line. Otherwise, the mountain would threaten the prestige of the Tyrant Blade Sect. It must be known that the Black Dragon Mountain touched the Tyrant Blade Sect’s territory, if the mountain sends a beast tide, the sect would happily show its strength.
Thinking through this point, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but sigh. Then he looked at Dao Shu and the others and said with a serious expression, “Senior Brothers, I’ll have to apologize in advance. I’m afraid that you’ll have to move.”
Dao Shu stared, then he asked, “Junior Brother, what do you mean?” Dao Niu and the others were also looking at Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “It’s not like I want to drive you away, but I have accepted a task today to plant the lands under Lower Earth Mountain. I didn’t expect the Miscellaneous Hall to also give peak number one to me. I have no other choice but to make you leave. I just arrived in the True Spirit Realm, so I have to tell my Masters about the task. As soon as they heard that I accepted the task, they allowed me to stay in peak number one. But they’re also afraid that my cultivation will be disturbed, so they want the peak to be cleaned out. In the end, I’ll have to ask for your forgiveness. In return, I’ll give you robots. Please don’t be offended.”
“Hahaha!” Hearing Zhao Hai, Dao Shu couldn’t help but laugh. Then he patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder and said, “Junior Brother, you’re thinking about it too much. If it’s the decision of the two elders, then we can only follow. We can also understand. You just arrived in the True Spirit Realm, so you really need to cultivate in peace. Moreover, it won’t be good if we’re present when the two elders instruct you. There’s more than enough space in the mountain for us. We can move anytime. But brother, we’ll have to ask you to give each one of us a robot. We really need them.”
Zhao Hai quickly replied, “That’s not a problem. During the beast attack, 10 robots have been destroyed. There’s still 20 robots left. And since the courtyard has been cleaned up, you can take 12 of them. Eight robots will be enough to maintain my courtyard.”
Dao Shu smiled and said, “Then we’ll be impolite and accept them. Brother, we still have to choose a place to live, so we won’t be staying here for long. We’ll be taking the robots away.”
Zhao Hai nodded and then called over 12 robots to go with Dao Shu and the others. Then he took out a spatial bag and said, “Brother, take this as well. Inside are some basic necessities. The robots will know what to do with them.”
Dao Shu received the spatial bag and scanned it with his spiritual force. There were quite a lot of things inside. Dao Shu didn’t decline and cupped his fist towards Zhao Hai and said, “Brother, I won’t say much, if you need anything, don’t hesitate to call us.”
Zhao Hai cupped his fist and said, “Then I’ll have to accept your promise. Senior Brothers, send me a message once you’ve selected your residence. I’ll come and drink with you when I have time.”
Dao Shu and the others laughed and then cupped their fists towards Zhao Hai before leaving. Looking at their departing backs, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile.
Dao Shu and the others couldn’t fly yet, so they can only walk down peak number one and then walk along the mountain paths towards the others peaks. This wasn’t a short distance. To be honest, Zhao Hai still felt sorry for Dao Shu and the others. As soon as he arrived, he drove them away. But there was nothing he could do. He couldn’t let anyone else know about his matters.
Just as Dao Shu and the others left, the sound of wings beating was heard before a winged horse descended from the sky. Just as the winged horse landed, Qiu Tie jumped down. But because the winged horse was too tall, Qiu Tie stumbled when he got down. He quickly got up and ran towards Zhao Hai and asked, “Young Master, are you alright?”
Zhao Hai looked at Qiu Tie and couldn’t help but smile. He patted Qiu Tie’s head and said, “Don’t worry, I’m fine. Alright, come with me inside.” Qiu Tie complied and then entered the living room with Zhao Hai.
Upon entering the room, Zhao Hai looked at Qiu Tie and said, “Little Tie, I’ll test you today to see the state of your spiritual roots. Then I’ll teach you to cultivate. What do you think?”
When he heard Zhao Hai, Qiu Tie’s eyes shone and said, “Young Master, you said I can cultivate like you? Can I be as strong as you as well?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “That won’t be hard. There are plenty of people more powerful than me in the Tyrant Blade Sect. Don’t worry, you will be as powerful as them in the future.”
Qiu Tie shook his head and said, “No, Young Master is the most powerful. I heard Grandfather say that you’re powerful.”
Zhao Hai smiled and didn’t say anything. He waved his hand and took out a crystal ball. Just by looking at it, one could see that the crystal ball wasn’t simple. This was a product that the Space made specifically to test a person’s spiritual root compatibility. Zhao Hai handed the crystal ball to Qiu Tie and said, “Little Tie, grab this crystal ball and concentrate. Remove any distracting thoughts.”
Qiu Tie obediently received the crystal ball and focused hard on it. In the beginning, his heart was full of distractions. But before long, his heart quieted down and he began to concentrate. There was only the crystal ball in his eyes.
The crystal ball flashed with brilliant lights. Then characters began appearing on the crystal ball: Earth element spiritual root, 70%. Water element spiritual root, 2%. Fire element spiritual root, 1%. Metal element spiritual root 2%. Wood element spiritual root, 1%. Other spiritual roots, less than 1%”
Upon seeing this, Zhao Hai immediately knew that Qiu Tie was most compatible with the Earth attribute. Moreover, besides the earth attribute, there was no need to consider the other attributes.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright, Little Tie. You can stop.” Qiu Tie recovered and then handed the crystal ball back to Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai received the crystal ball and began looking at Qiu Tie. He started to ponder what cultivation methods Qiu Tie could practice.
For the earth attribute, it was best to study defensive techniques as well as strength techniques. Such a cultivation path means that their beginning would be slow. However, they would become very formidable later on.
Thinking of this, Zhao Hai’s eyes shone. He thought about the 18 Buddhist Techniques, particularly the Demon Subjugation Technique. The Demon Subjugation Technique was a cultivation method that increases both strength and defense. Although it was a Buddhist Technique, its core attribute was the earth. It should be suitable for Qiu Tie to study.
