Chapter 2040 – Imperial Beast Sect
Just as Zhao Hai entered the inn, he heard someone’s voice, “Quickly vacate a room for me. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being impolite.”
The innkeeper replied, “Mister, our inn has no other rooms. I’m a businessman, if there is a room, why would I withhold it from you? I really don’t have any vacant rooms left. The town has other inns, maybe Mister can go to them and try.”
“I don’t care. This senior will stay here today. If you don’t allow me, then I will smash your shop.”
“Even if you smash my shop, I still won’t have any vacant room for you. Mister, this is Maze Town. The rules of the Tyrant Blade Sect prohibits any violence inside the town.
“Hmph. So what? I don’t believe that the Tyrant Blade Sect would offend me for the sake of an ordinary innkeeper.”
Hearing the arrogance of the other party, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. Then he walked into the inn. The inn has two floors and around 20 rooms in total. In order to accommodate more people, the innkeeper made the pub smaller.
After entering the inn, you need to turn a small corner to see where the innkeeper was. The paths inside the inn looked like a maze. If there was no guide, inhabitants would have to walk half a day to find their room.
The innkeeper’s corner was no more than five square meters big. A small counter was at the side to store things in. There’s also a small bed for the innkeeper. It was clear how hardworking he is.
At this time, in this small space were two people. One of them was a bulky person that was two meters tall. On his back was a large axe. He held the innkeeper’s shirt as if he was holding a chicken. He was very close to hitting the innkeeper.
Hearing footsteps, the pale innkeeper and the person turned their heads towards Zhao Hai. Seeing the two, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Senior Brother, how about placing the boss down? This Junior Brother has something to ask him. It’s not too late to fight after I deal with my matter.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, the innkeeper and the man were shocked. The man loosened his hand, causing the innkeeper to fall to the ground. Both of them looked at Zhao Hai, seemingly not understanding what he meant.
It took quite some time for the two to respond. The man gave Zhao Hai a cold gaze and said, “Kid, who are you? You dare command this senior? Are you tired of living?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Senior Brother has misunderstood. I don’t intend to intrude on your business. I just want to ask the boss something. Senior Brother, please wait for a moment.”
The man sneered, “Kid, you dare. If I don’t stop, what would you do?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I can’t do anything. But Senior Brother, this is the territory of the Tyrant Blade Sect. Although the boss is a mortal, he opened a shop in Maze Town. Naturally, he will be under the sect’s protection. If you do anything to him, you will be slapping the face of the Tyrant Blade Sect. Do you really want to offend the Tyrant Blade Sect?”
The man coldly snorted and said, “How the Tyrant Blade Sect deals with me, that will be known later. On the other hand, since you’re too nosy and couldn’t mind your own business, you will suffer the consequences. Since you said that we can’t fight inside the city, then let’s go outside. Let this uncle teach you a lesson.”
Zhao Hai’s eyes momentarily flashed a cold light. Then he smiled faintly and said, “Since Senior Brother says so, then how could this Junior Brother decline?” The man sneered and walked out of the inn.
Seeing the man’s arrogant look, Zhao Hai sneered inside. After leaving the inn, the two walked out of the town.
Zhao Hai walked a step behind the man. Looking at the sneer on the man’s face, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but think that something wasn’t right. Even if someone has a grudge against the Tyrant Blade Sect, they wouldn’t carelessly go to the sect’s territory to cause trouble. The Tyrant Blade Sect has always been known for being unforgiving against its enemies. Even a sect like the Imperial Beast Sect wouldn’t dare cause any trouble in the Tyrant Blade Sect’s territory. Otherwise, the Tyrant Blade Sect wouldn’t let them off.
Also, the man’s timing seems to be too coincidental. He pestered the innkeeper and refused to leave. But just as Zhao Hai spoke, he immediately latched onto him. It seemed like Zhao Hai was his real target.
The man looked like he didn’t have a plan, but after listening to his words, Zhao Hai knew that he was plotting something. In this case, if Zhao Hai is still clueless, then he would be stupid.
It didn’t take long before the two left the town. However, the man continued to walk. At the same time, he paid close attention to Zhao Hai. Seeing that Zhao Hai was still following him, the man was relieved.
Soon after, the two arrived on a hill. The hill wasn’t tall. It was full of rocks and devoid of plants. The hill was about a hundred kilometers away from Maze Town.
The man looked at Zhao Hai, then he laughed and said, “People have been saying that the Tyrant Blade Sect’s Zhao Hai is fierce. But in my opinion, he’s an idiot. To be so easily swindled, you’re really stupid.”
Zhao Hai wasn’t offended by the man’s words, he just smiled and said, “You’re from the Imperial Beast Sect, right? Why, did those guys from the Sword Hegemon Sect tell you how powerful I was? How many of you came this time?”
As soon as he heard Zhao Hai, the man couldn’t help but gawk. Then his complexion changed. He didn’t expect Zhao Hai to reveal his status that easily. It seems like Zhao Hai has known long ago that he was being baited.
Despite this, the man coldly snorted, looking like he disdained Zhao Hai’s existence. But his eyes gazed warily at the surroundings. Seeing this, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “There’s no need to look around. It’s just me. Are you scared?”
The man sneered and said, “Me? Scared? The Sword Hegemon Sect are fools, they can’t even deal with you using ten people. Today, I’ll let you know the strength of the Imperial Beast Sect.” After he said that, the man let out a roar. Then all around the hill, several roars were heard.
Before long, several people appeared on the desolate hill and surrounded Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai could count seven people, less than the attackers from the Sword Hegemon Sect. However, among these seven people, two of them were Earth Monarchs while the rest were at the Soul Fusion Stage. The Imperial Beast Sect’s attack team wasn’t any weaker than the Sword Hegemon Sect’s.
Zhao Hai’s eyes narrowed, but the smile on his face didn’t fade. He could see from the people sent by the Imperial Beast Sect that the two allies don’t seem to be as peaceful as they look. For the Imperial Beast Sect to send such a lineup only means that they want to suppress the Sword Hegemon Sect.
However, this was also good. With an internal competition between the two sects, the Tyrant Blade Sect was safe from the two sects working together. This was good news for the Tyrant Blade Sect. As for the current situation, it wasn’t good for Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai looked at the people from the Imperial Beast Sect and sneered, “What, the Imperial Beast Sect won’t deal with me using demon beasts? You’re actually attacking me yourselves?”
The person who brought Zhao Hai over laughed and said, “To deal with you, there’s no need to use demon beasts. Everyone, attack!” Then the man took his big axe and began to attack Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai coldly snorted and said, “Not using demon beasts? Hmph. Let’s see how you deal with me.” Then Zhao Hai took his blade out and used the Eight Gate Goldenlock Technique.
As soon as the Eight Gate Goldenlock Technique was used, eight gates appeared around Zhao Hai. The faces of the attackers couldn’t help but change. These people knew that this would only happen when a technique was practiced to a very high realm. They couldn’t help but be stunned.
However, they were only stunned for a moment. They continued to wield their weapons to attack Zhao Hai. The weapons used by the people of the Imperial Beast Sect varied but they were commonly heavy weapons. Although their techniques weren’t as profound as Zhao Hai’s, they have all reached major perfection. Along with their cultivation levels, their attacks were stronger than Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about these. With the Eight Gate Goldenlock Technique, his body was firmly protected. At this time, his clone appeared and used a metal-element technique, the Hundred Blades Technique.
The people from the Imperial Beast Sect soon discovered that Zhao Hai’s cooperation with his clone was too perfect. Be it offense or defense, they were well-coordinated. Not only did Zhao Hai and his clone defend well, their attacks also weren’t weak.
By this point, the people of the Imperial Beast Sect understood how Zhao Hai was able to repel the Sword Hegemon Sect. Besides his clone, there was also Zhao Hai’s Undead. But until now, Zhao Hai hasn’t released his Undead. This meant that Zhao Hai was still holding back. This caused their expressions to turn ugly.
Zhao Hai has been paying attention to the attackers’ appearance. He doesn’t believe that disciples of the Imperial Beast Sect wouldn’t bring demon beasts with them. As long as the beasts weren’t used, they would continue to be a threat. Therefore, Zhao Hai refrained from releasing his Undead. He was waiting for the other party to show their aces first.
Sure enough, seeing that Zhao Hai was still fighting, the leader of the attackers reached out towards his waist. There were several small pouches on the leader’s waist. These pouches seem to be made from leather. The leader patted one of the pouches. With this action, a heaven-shaking roar was heard. Then a tiger appeared on the leader’s side. The tiger had golden fur and black stripes. As soon as the tiger appeared, it let out a loud roar. It was without a doubt a king of beasts!
