Chapter 2052 – Drifting Away
Zhao Hai knew that the matter needed to be solved, and he already thought of a solution. Since this was the case, he didn’t need to hide himself. There was also no need to do that.
Besides a few insiders, nobody knew about Zhao Hai leaving Maze Town. A lot of cultivators leave and arrive in Maze Town every day. It wasn’t strange for someone to leave.
Hearing that Zhao Hai has left the town, Liu Shui sighed. He didn’t say anything. He’s only an inner disciple of the Maze Town Branch of the Tyrant Blade Sect. Although he appreciates Zhao Hai’s boldness, he has no plans of offending Liu Yingjie. After all, Liu Yingjie was a disciple of the Matchless Sword School.
Although the Great Sects have conflicts with each other, they still have to show that they were peaceful. Conflicts like the Tyrant Blade Sect and the Sword Hegemon Sect were extreme cases. In this case, Liu Shui couldn’t openly support Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai also didn’t expect Liu Shui to side with him. In the end, Liu Shui was a disciple of the branch hall. His main job was to maintain order in Maze Town.
When he left Maze Town, Zhao Hai proceeded without stopping. He knew very well that even if Liu Yingjie wanted to cause trouble, he wouldn’t do so in the open. They would definitely act covertly.
Sure enough, some time after Zhao Hai left Maze Town, four people were seen blocking the road. Liu Yingjie was in the front while behind him were his junior brothers and sister.
Liu Yingjie looked at Zhao Hai and coldly snorted, “Kid, your courage is big. You actually dared to leave town. This will cost you your life!”
Zhao Hai just smiled faintly and said, “If I don’t leave, would you let me go? Talking is useless, let’s fight.” After he said that, Zhao Hai took his blade out.
Liu Yingjie didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be so direct. He sneered and said, “Kid, you’re too arrogant. Don’t you know who you are facing? Fighting me will be suicide.”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “What a pity, I still like to live well.” He no longer waited for Liu Yingjie to reply, he waved his blade and made the first move.
Liu Yingjie didn’t expect Zhao Hai to attack. He couldn’t help but stare for a moment. However, he wasn’t late with his response. He pulled his sword out to block Zhao Hai.
The Matchless Sword School was famous for their sword techniques. Therefore, each disciple in their sect were genius swordmasters of their generation. Liu Yingjie shows this clearly as he used his sword to block Zhao Hai’s blade. After parrying Zhao Hai’s attack, he immediately shifted to offense. In his opinion, overwhelming Zhao Hai with his sword was a simple matter.
Liu Yingjie’s junior disciples thought the same, so they didn’t join in. They just stood on the side and watched Liu Yingjie fight against Zhao Hai. In their minds, dealing with a rogue cultivator wasn’t a hard matter.
However, their carelessness showed their mistake. Zhao Hai’s blade techniques far exceeded their imagination. Liu Yingjie’s sword techniques were only at the Perfection Stage. His skills were too far compared to Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai continued to use his blade to fight against Liu Yingjie. In the beginning, Liu Yingjie was confident in his victory. But as time passed, he slowly became aware that his sword techniques were unable to do anything to Zhao Hai. Conversely, his attacks were being suppressed.
Liu Yingjie wasn’t the only person shocked by this, the others were also startled. They didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be formidable.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about their feelings right now. He also found it difficult to fight Liu Yingjie. Although Liu Yingjie wasn’t the strongest among the people he fought, his techniques were among the best. Liu Yingjie wasn’t using a high-level sword technique, but his proficiency wasn’t low. Zhao Hai hasn’t encountered an enemy like this before, it was a new experience.
Liu Yingjie’s sword technique might not be on par with Zhao Hai’s blade, he was still better compared to average people. Fighting against him brought great benefits to Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai might be happy with his battle, but Liu Yingjie was not. He didn’t expect his famed sword technique to be suppressed by a blade-wielding rogue cultivator. If his cultivation wasn’t higher, then he might have already been defeated.
This was an embarrassment to Liu Yingjie. It was a huge embarrassment. He was a disciple of the Matchless Sword School, yet he lost to another person’s technique. Although the other party used a blade, it was still shameful to a Matchless Sword School disciple.
But even if Liu Yingjie was angry, he doesn’t have the means to deal with Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai’s skills were higher than him. He was beginning to think that it was impossible for him to kill Zhao Hai.
As for Liu Yingjie’s junior disciples, who were watching the battle on the sidelines, looked at each other with a look of shock on their faces. They didn’t expect this to happen.
Liu Yingjie’s zone of action was getting smaller and smaller while Zhao Hai’s one got bigger and bigger. Although Liu Yingjie was a Soul Fusion cultivator, Zhao Hai’s proficiency with his blade made up for the gap of cultivation. Zhao Hai was also slowly occupying the winning side.
Liu Yingjie has never felt so humiliated. He felt that the sword in his hand was seemingly trapped in a net. Every swing he made was becoming heavier and heavier. Most importantly, it seems like the opponent’s blade was waiting for his sword all the time. Liu Yingjie couldn’t find a way to deal with his situation.
Zhao Hai didn’t think as much as he continued to suppress Liu Yingjie. He understood that his comprehension of blade techniques was much higher. However, his cultivation was lower. Therefore, defeating Liu Yingjie in a short time was impossible. He can only rely on his blade techniques to push Liu Yingjie back as he looks for ways to defeat him.
Zhao Hai’s idea was good. However, Liu Yingjie just wouldn’t wait for this to happen. In Liu Yingjie’s mind, if he allowed Zhao Hai to defeat him using blade techniques, then that would be a huge insult. And Liu Yingjie wouldn’t allow this to happen.
In Liu Yingjie’s mind, this was no longer a simple battle. This was a battle for life and death. If it were a normal duel, Liu Yingjie would have no other methods to win. But in a battle for life and death, things were different. He can resort to underhanded means. As soon as he thought of this, Liu Yingjie shouted, “What are you looking at? Attack! We’ll kill him today!”
Naturally, Liu Yingjie shouted towards his junior brothers and sisters. The junior disciples were stunned when they heard this. They knew Liu Yingjie very well. He was a genius of the Matchless Sword School. And geniuses were very proud. He wouldn’t allow other people to interfere with his battles. If someone interferes, instead of being grateful, he would definitely hold a grudge. It was because of this that the junior brothers and sisters didn’t help attacking Zhao Hai. They just stood on the side and watched.
They didn’t expect the arrogant Liu Yingjie to ask for help. They couldn’t help but stare. But they immediately pulled their swords out and joined the battle.
Seeing this situation, Zhao Hai went into a passive form as he released his clone and defended with all his strength.
Liu Yingjie and the others were depressed. They discovered that despite attacking with four people, they still couldn’t get rid of their enemy.
As the fight continued on, the four became more surprised. They actually couldn’t deal with their enemy. This fact surprised them.
The five fought against Zhao Hai for an hour. Although cultivators discovered their battle, they didn’t watch for a long time and left. Cultivators in Maze Town were mostly composed of rogue cultivators. Rogue cultivators weren’t fundamentally strong. Seeing the battle between Zhao Hai and the disciples of the Matchless Sword School, they knew that none of them were easy to deal with. Naturally, they wouldn’t dare enter this muddy water.
By this point, Liu Yingjie and the others were startled. Their confidence has been completely destroyed. They couldn’t fathom what kind of monster they met. This clone stage cultivator could actually block the attack of five Soul Fusion Cultivators.
Seeing the situation, Zhao Hai made a huge sweep with his blade to clear his surroundings. This caused Liu Yingjie to be stunned. Then Zhao Hai moved back several hundred meters. As he did that, he said, “There’s no need to send me off. I’m sure our fates will meet once more in the future.” Right after he said that, Zhao Hai was already 2 kilometers away. Liu Yingjie and the others wouldn’t have enough time to pursue him.
Seeing this, Liu Yingjie’s complexion couldn’t help but pale. He didn’t expect Zhao Hai to survive despite being under attack by four people. Moreover, Zhao Hai was very calm and had no injuries on his body.
At this time, a Matchless Sword School cultivator arrived beside Liu Yingjie and said, “Senior Brother, something’s not right.”
Liu Yingjie turned his head and said, “What is not right? Contact all branch stores of the sect. Make them pay attention to Zhao Hai’s movements. He must die.”
The junior disciple shook his head and said, “Senior Brother, something is really not right. If Zhao Hai is an ordinary rogue cultivator, he wouldn’t have been so strong. If he’s an ordinary rogue cultivator, his blade techniques wouldn’t be so profound. How could ordinary cultivators reach his level of proficiency? I think that Zhao Hai’s status is higher than we think.”
Upon hearing this, Liu Yingjie calmed down, then he knitted his brows and said, “You mean Zhao Hai has a huge backing? Can he be a disciple of the Tyrant Blade Sect? But if he is, then why didn’t the two disciples in Maze Town recognize him? Moreover, he didn’t get in contact with the branch hall of the Tyrant Blade Sect.”
The cultivator knitted his brows and said, “I also don’t know the reason.”
