Chapter 2098 – Kingdom Toppling Beauty
The Yin Yang Elders led Zhao Hai in front of a cave residence. There were two cultivators standing guard outside. Surprisingly, the guards were at the Earth Monarch Stage. The two had no emotions when the three came. One of the guards looked at them and said, “Password.”
The Yin Elder promptly replied, “The Yin Yang returns the order!”
The cultivator replied, “The Tyrant Blade Sect is unparalleled! Elders, please come in.” The Yin Yang Elders nodded before walking in.
Upon entering the cave residence, Zhao Hai stared at the long and gloomy passage in front of him. There would be a cultivator every two meters along the passage. All of these cultivators were at the Earth Monarch Stage, much to Zhao Hai’s surprise.
The Yang Elder looked at Zhao Hai and said, “This is the Tyrant Blade Sect’s prison. We have important criminals imprisoned here. Some of these criminals are enemies of the Tyrant Blade Sect while some are cultivators who did wicked deeds for many years. Any one of them had their name resound in the True Spirit Realm. However, I don’t know how many of them are still alive. This time, we brought you here to see the Ghost Cultivators we caught.”
The Yin Elder added, “From the day it was constructed, this dungeon has never been broken through. It’s extremely sturdy. Moreover, did you hear the password? To enter the prison, only elders above the fifth level are allowed. Moreover, each elder has their own unique password. Even if others know of our password, they wouldn’t be able to come here.”
Zhao Hai nodded. It seems like the security of this dungeon is extremely strict. Just the passage they passed through already has dozens of Earth Monarchs. Moreover, there were also people who had hidden their aura. Who knows how strong these people are.
Most importantly, those who could enter the prison were elders level 5 or above. It must be known that elders of the Tyrant Blade Sect were divided into nine levels, with level 9 being the highest and level 1 being the lowest. Level 1 elders might be nobodies, but level 5 elders were part of the Tyrant Blade Sect’s true strength. As for level 9, this position is reserved for Supreme Elders of the sect. As for the Yin Yang Elders, they were level 7 elders of the Tyrant Blade Sect.
The Yin Yang Elders continued to tell Zhao Hai the rules of the dungeon while they were walking. When they turned a corner, Zhao Hai was stunned. In front of him was a gigantic cave. The cave was as large as ten football fields. The ground was covered with formations. There were cultivators practicing on the ground. All around the cave were torches as the source of light.
The people practicing were all at the Teleportation Stage. There were around a hundred of them. A single one of them would have been a headache to deal with. Zhao Hai also found countless formations in the cave. Even if the Yin Yang Elders attacked, they wouldn’t be able to break through them.
Seeing Zhao Hai and the Yin Yang Elders arrive, the Teleportation Stage cultivators immediately stopped practicing. Their expressions have an understanding look, then they cupped their fists at the same time, “We have seen the Yin Yang Elders.”
The Yin Elder waved his hand and said, “As you were. Where is that old prison warden? Is he hidden away somewhere drinking?”
The cultivators looked at each other, then they smiled bitterly and said, “Elder Lao is resting inside his room. Elders, please.”
The Yin Elder nodded, then he waved his hand and said, “We’re going.” After saying that, he led Zhao Hai and the Yang Elder inside. At the same time, the gazes of the Teleportation Stage cultivators were focused on Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai also felt the gazes on him, but he didn’t care. He continued to follow the Yin Yang Elders with a calm expression.
Seeing Zhao Hai’s appearance, the Teleportation Stage cultivators couldn’t help but nod secretly. They haven’t seen Zhao Hai’s strength, but his mental state alone showed that he was an expert.
Before long, the group of three arrived at a small cave. The Yin Elder didn’t even knock and directly pushed the door open while shouting, “Drunk prison warden. We’re here!”
A lazy voice quickly replied, “Why are you two old men here? Did that disciple of yours finally finish his seclusion?” What surprised Zhao Hai was the fact that the voice belonged to a woman. Is the warden of the dungeon a woman?
At this time, Zhao Hai also entered the residence. As soon as he entered, Zhao Hai was stunned by the aroma of wine.
Before long, another expansive cavern entered Zhao Hai’s eyes. There should be at least a thousand square meters of floor area. The most noteworthy aspect of the cave was the numerous shelves present. All these shelves contained either wine bottles or wine jars.
Seeing this, Zhao Hai was shocked. He immediately took note of the only other person inside. Sitting in the middle of the cave was a beautiful woman. Her long hair was hanging down her waist. Her ocean-colored eyes were somewhat blurred, showing that she was more or less drunk.
The woman was wearing a long red robe while sitting on a snow-white beast skin. Her cream-colored face had a slight blush. Her features could only be described as delicate. There was an embroidered pattern on her left hand while her right hand held a jade cup. Inside the cup was a dark red liquid. In front of her was a small table with two plates of fresh fruits as well as a jade bottle.
Beautiful! She was a beauty enough to topple kingdoms. It was the kind of beauty that made one breathless.
However, Zhao Hai’s heart was as solid as rock. And with his love towards Laura and the others, he was only stunned for a moment before calming down.
Zhao Hai’s reaction didn’t escape the eyes of the three elders. The Yin Yang Elders couldn’t help but be proud upon seeing Zhao Hai’s expression. As for the red-clothed woman, she was stunned. Then a pondering smile appeared on her face.
The Yin Elder laughed and said, “Old Warden, I must say, your days have passed. Little Hai, greet Elder Lao.”
Zhao Hai quickly bowed and said, “Zhao Hai has seen Elder Lao.”
Elder Lao waved her hand and said, “There’s no need to be polite. Yin Yang Elders, you’ve lucked out on your disciple. Are you here for those guys?”
The Yin Elder nodded, “Since Little Hai isn’t available, we weren’t able to do anything to those fellows. Now that he’s here, it’s time to get information from their own mouths.”
Elder Lao nodded. She clapped twice and two Teleportation Stage cultivators arrived. The two didn’t dare look at Elder Lao as they immediately bowed and said, “Elder, what are your orders?”
Elder Lao replied, “Go and carry those Ghost Cultivators here.” The two cultivators immediately complied and swiftly left to do their task.
Zhao Hai was stunned when he heard this, carry them over? Could it be that those Ghost Cultivators have been beaten and couldn’t move? After a while, the two Teleportation Stage cultivators carried five people into Elder Lao’s residence. The five were wearing the Tyrant Blade Sect’s uniform. Their complexion was quite rosy. They didn’t look like they had been beaten at all. However, they look drunk.
Zhao Hai stared, then he looked at the Yin Yang Elders in confusion. Looking at the five prisoners, the Yin Elder said, “Warden, your Thousand-year wine is really powerful. It’s been a few years, but they still haven’t woken up.”
Elder Lao smiled and said, “My Thousand-year wine isn’t easy to make. If it weren’t for the sect, I wouldn’t have been willing to take it out.”
The Yin Elder smiled and said, “I understand. Your thousand-year wine is very famous in the True Spirit Realm. But if it weren’t for your wine, these guys wouldn’t have behaved this long. Little Hai, you can do your thing. But don’t dirty this place.”
Zhao Hai understood what the Yin Elder meant. He immediately waved his hand as the five people on the ground disappeared. Not long after, the five appeared once more, this time their eyes were clear. If it weren’t for the lack of life force in their bodies, people wouldn’t have noticed that they have been turned into Undead.
Zhao Hai glanced at the five Undead and then turned to the Yin Elder, “Master, it’s done.”
The Yin Elder gave Zhao Hai a satisfied look. Then he looked at the Teleportation Stage cultivators and said, “You guys can go.” The two Teleportation Stage cultivators nodded and then left.
After all uninvolved people left, the Yin Elder looked at the five Undead and asked, “Let’s begin, are you Ghost Cultivators?” They still don’t have a way to completely determine whether these people were Ghost Cultivators or not. However, the True Spirit Realm wouldn’t mind killing innocents to get a few Ghost Cultivators. So even if the five weren’t Ghost Cultivators, the Yin Yang Elders wouldn’t feel anything. The same can be true for Zhao Hai.
Hearing the Yin Elder’s question, the five Undead answered simultaneously, “Yes, we are Ghost Cultivators.”
The Yin Elder gave a satisfied nod. Then he asked once more, “Do you know how many Ghost Cultivators there are in the Tyrant Blade Sect? How did you manage to infiltrate the sect?”
The Undead with the former position of Elder replied, “Replying to the Elder. From what I know, there are 12 Ghost Cultivators in the Tyrant Blade Sect. All of us are from Ghost Cultivator clans. We’ve been selected by our clans since childhood. Before we began cultivating, we were sent to the Tyrant Blade Sect. Because of this, nobody would doubt our identity. These four are my subordinates. There are seven more. I can give you their identities right now.”
The Yin Elder was in a daze. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, are you sure that these people are Undead? How can they answer these questions?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Master, don’t worry. They’ve been turned into loyal Undead. My Undead are different from others. They possess intelligence and can interact smoothly as though they are alive. The only difference is that they are completely loyal to me.”
