Chapter 2013 – The Beasts Have Come
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I understand a little. Arranging a few defensive formations wouldn’t be an issue. My Masters have also seen the formation and they are satisfied. I think the formation isn’t that bad. It should be able to block the beasts for a while.”
Dao Shu looked at Zhao Hai and said, “The more time we spend together, the less I understand you. Not only are you strong, you’re also good at these miscellaneous things. Alright, then I’ll do as you say. We’ll use your residence as a base to deal with the beasts.”
Dao Niu, who was at the side, joined in, “I also feel that something strange is happening recently. In the past, the beasts of Black Dragon Mountain weren’t silent for this long. It has been a month and yet they haven’t attacked yet. The beasts who were strolling below Lower Earth Mountain used to attack us the moment we got spotted. But now, they immediately run away.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Before I came to Lower Earth Mountain, I heard about the fierceness of the beasts of Black Dragon Mountain. They said that the beasts would descend the mountain once in a while and attack. But this is also good. I wanted to see the strength of the beasts.”
As the group were talking, they finally arrived at resident complex 52. Dao Shu and the others left before the resident complex was rebuilt. Now that they returned, they couldn’t help but stare.
When they lived in resident complex 52, the entire complex looked ruined. Now that it has been rebuilt, it had a very elegant facade. If they didn’t know where they were going, Dao Shu and the others might have doubted if this was resident complex 52. They were truly shocked.
The rebuilt resident complex 52 had an aura that tells people it was willing to fight against the heavens. It was like a prideful soldier that dared to face any enemy that faces him.
A mere residence giving off such a feeling might seem strange, but it existed. Resident complex 52 was giving this exact feeling. Whether they want to admit it or not, Dao Shu and the others had to accept that it exists.
After looking around resident complex 52, Dao Shu let out a long breath. Then he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, you’re really a genius. You’re actually able to turn your residence into this.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “This isn’t my design. Resident complex 52 looked like this originally. But because it’s been abandoned, it was in ruins. Otherwise, it would have kept this aura.”
Dao Shu and the others were stunned for a moment. Then they turned towards resident complex 52 with a look of longing on their faces. Then Dao Shu turned back to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, do you think resident complex 53 could also become like this?”
Zhao Hai stared, then he smiled faintly and said, “It should be. From what I can see, resident complex 53 has the same layout as resident complex 52. If it’s rebuilt well, it should look the same as resident complex 52. However, the defensive formation of resident complex 53 has been left in ruins for a long time. It would need to be repaired.”
Dao Shu nodded, then he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, if we decide to rebuild resident complex 53, you have to help us.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Of course. But I have to remind you that I only dared to rebuild this place because of my mission. The mission gave this entire peak to me. If you want to renovate resident complex 53, then you have to ask for permission from the sect.”
When Dao Shu heard Zhao Hai, he couldn’t help but freeze for a moment. Then he frowned and said, “If that’s the case, then it would be troublesome. The sect might not give us permission.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “That might not be the case. The Tyrant Blade Sect is aware of Lower Earth Mountain’s situation. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have issued a special mission. If you ask to rebuild resident complex 53 at this time, the sect might agree.”
As he said that, Zhao Hai led everyone into resident complex 52 and then assigned them their rooms. Dao Shu and the others were still quite some distance away from where Zhao Hai was living, but the facilities in their residences were complete. They definitely won’t have any problems with it.
Once Dao Shu and the others had settled down, they ate food and drank liquor. Then Dao Shu and the others returned to their rooms to rest.
Zhao Hai only discovered this after he arrived in the True Spirit Realm. Here, people get hungry when they don’t eat and they get drunk if they drink too much liquor. This would never happen in the Great Realm of Cultivation.
Zhao Hai didn’t drink a lot. Moreover, his physique was very special. Everything that enters his body would immediately become energy. Because of this, he would not get drunk unless he wanted to.
It was already getting late, Zhao Hai watched Qiu Tie soak in the medicinal bath and then returned back to his room to rest. After returning to his room, Zhao Hai took out the jade slip with the Goldentip Blade Technique inside and studied it seriously.
Zhao Hai didn’t intend to use his Undead during this beast attack. He wants to train himself. Compared to the lower realms, Zhao Hai wasn’t planning on relying on his Undead and beasts at this time. At his current level, any carelessness might reveal the Space’s existence to the powerful experts of the realm. Although the possibility was very small, Zhao Hai doesn’t want to take the risk.
Additionally, Zhao Hai wants to train his combat skills. In any realm, the stronger your are, the more power your words will have. And when Zhao Hai came to the True Spirit Realm, the opportunities he could use the Space became smaller and smaller. Therefore, it was imperative for him to improve his strength.
The night passed quietly. The next day, Zhao Hai woke up early to practice his blade. Then he ordered the robot to call Dao Shu and the others for a meal. This time, the group only ate breakfast and didn’t drink. Then they went to their respective training yards to practice. Dao Shu and the others were the kind to practice like madmen. Otherwise, they would have friends in the Tyrant Blade Sect.
Life seems to return to normal. For three days in a row, Lower Earth Mountain was very peaceful. Zhao Hai and the others were also not anxious. And Zhao Hai used these three days to practice the Goldentip Blade.
However, Zhao Hai made his robots monitor Black Dragon Mountain. As long as any changes happen, they would immediately report to him.
Five days after Dao Shu and the others moved to resident complex 52, as Zhao Hai was practicing his blade in the training yard, a grating alarm was suddenly heard. Zhao Hai knew that this was an alarm from the robots monitoring Black Dragon Mountain. This meant that there were changes to the beasts in the mountain.
Zhao Hai immediately moved and arrived at the entrance of resident complex 52. When the Tyrant Blade Sect built the residences on Lower Earth Mountain, their main goal was to guard against the beasts of Black Dragon Mountain. Therefore, the entrances of the resident complexes were all facing the Black Dragon Mountain. Moreover, each entrance provided a very wide field of view, allowing the disciples to clearly see the situation.
Large quantities of beasts were currently gushing out of Black Dragon Mountain. All of these beasts were heading towards Lower Earth Mountain. From Zhao Hai’s calculations, there should be around ten thousand beasts heading his way.
Ten thousand beasts might not be a lot, but this is the True Spirit Realm. The beasts here were much more powerful than the ones in the lower realms. These ten thousand beasts were a true threat to Zhao Hai and the others.
A dark shadow began to cover Lower Earth Mountain. Zhao Hai looked up and saw eagle-shaped beasts flying above.
Zhao Hai coldly looked at the beasts and his expression sank. He didn’t understand what these beasts wanted to do. But it was certain that their target was Lower Earth Mountain.
At this moment, Zhao Hai felt the presence of a few people beside him. He turned his head and saw that it was Dao Shu and the others. They were also looking at the beasts with heavy expressions on their faces. They also knew that the beasts were aiming for Lower Earth Mountain. Zhao Hai calmly said, “Senior Brothers, it seems like we’ll have to hold this place as our frontline. Senior Brother Dao, I’ll have to trouble you to send a message back to the sect. We’ll hold the beasts here to give the sect enough time to send reinforcements.”
Dao Shu nodded and said, “I can take care of it. But Junior Brother, we need to stop the beasts here. Otherwise, they would go beyond Lower Earth Mountain. Then your plants will be ruined. And beyond that is the center of the sect. Serving Disciples aren’t strong enough to face the beasts. We can’t afford to lose them.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Don’t worry, we’ll be able to keep them here.” After saying that, he waved his hand and released a thousand Undead as well as some flying beasts. He also took out his heavy glaive.
Since he wasn’t planning on relying too much on his Undead, Zhao Hai only released Hu Wei and his army. Hu Wei’s troops were strong and well-trained. They would be the best Undead to use in this situation. As for the flying beasts, they would be used to entangle the flying beasts of Black Dragon Mountain. Zhao Hai knew that if he didn’t release the Undead and the flying beasts, it would be impossible for him to block the beasts even with the help of Dao Shu and the others. Moreover, among the beasts that were coming over were very powerful beasts.
Seeing Zhao Hai release so many Undead as well as flying beasts, Dao Shu couldn’t help but stare. Then he laughed and said, “Good! With this, we can stop the beasts. Also, Brother, do you like using this kind of huge blade? Not a lot of people in the sect use this.”
