Chapter 2108 – Change in the Underground Labyrinth
Hearing Zhao Hai, the Yin Elder can only sigh as he said, “It can only be like this right now. Even if we alerted the enemy, we still need to deal with those guys. If we don’t clean them up, we will have more trouble in the future.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “The sect should send people to the Ouyang Clan as soon as possible. If we’re lucky, we might catch a few Ghost Cultivators. If we arrive late, I’m afraid we won’t be able to catch anyone.”
The Yin Elder agreed, “You don’t have to worry about this. The sect will take care of it. Just take care of yourself.” Zhao Hai nodded, then the Yin Elder turned his communicator off.
Zhao Hai also received his communication token. He looked at Laura and the others and said, “Our adventure didn’t come in vain. At least our gains aren’t small.”
Laura smiled and said, “We gained a lot. With more powerful Undead in our hands, our combat strength has increased and our safety is more guaranteed.” At this moment, Zhao Hai felt Qiu Tie’s aura behind him. The energy in his body was a bit abnormal. Zhao Hai turned his head and found Qiu Tie sitting on the ground with his eyes closed.
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “He broke through to the Condensed Avatar Stage. This kid, he didn’t even go to his own room.” Laura and the others also smiled. All of them stopped speaking and waited for Qiu Tie to finish.
After an hour, a dao avatar began appearing behind Qiu Tie’s body. In the beginning, the dao avatar was just a smokey silhouette. But before long, the dao avatar became clearer. Upon seeing the dao avatar, everyone present couldn’t help but stare. This was because Qiu Tie’s dao avatar wasn’t in his appearance. Instead, it was the image of Zhao Hai when he was using a large glaive.
Seeing this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile bitterly. The moment the dao avatar formed, Zhao Hai could clearly feel faith power pouring out from Qiu Tei’s body to his.
Actually, after arriving in the True Spirit Realm, although Zhao Hai was still able to gain faith power from the Space, the amount he received was also being compressed. Also, faith power has little use to Zhao Hai’s current body. On the contrary, faith power seems to be affecting Zhao Hai’s spiritual force more. Zhao Hai could feel the golden spiritual force in his mind increasing.
The faith power that Qiu Tie provided was softer than the faith power that the Undead in the Space provided. This came as a surprise to Zhao Hai.
Once Qiu Tie’s dao avatar solidified, he opened his eyes. There was a blank look in his eyes, then Qiu Tie noticed his dao avatar. Seeing the form that his dao avatar took, he couldn’t help but smile happily. Then he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Young Master, I successfully condensed my dao avatar.”
Seeing Qiu Tie’s happy appearance, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile bitterly as he responded, “Silly kid, did you really have to use this appearance on your dao avatar? This will have an effect on your future.”
Qiu Tie shook his head and said, “I don’t mind. In my heart, the Young Master is the world’s strongest person. I won’t doubt using your appearance for my dao avatar.”
Zhao Hai looked at the kid’s serious expression, he sighed and said, “Alright. I can only let you learn other techniques. Using the Demon Subjugation Technique is no longer enough for you.” Although Qiu Tie didn’t understand what Zhao Hai meant, he didn’t say anything.
But when Laura and the others heard what Zhao Hai said, they immediately understood. Zhao Hai was planning for Qiu Tie to practice the cultivation method of the Heavenly Demon Race. To be honest, only the Heavenly Demon Race’s methods were most suitable for Qiu Tie’s situation. Naturally, the current version of the Heavenly Demon Race’s technique was better than before. It wouldn’t have any negative consequences towards Qiu Tie’s future. Qiu Tie wouldn’t need to defeat Zhao Hai in order to progress. Otherwise, Qiu Tie wouldn’t be able to progress for the rest of his life.
However, it was still not the time for Qiu Tie to learn the Heavenly Demon Race’s method. What’s most important for him right now is to stabilize his realm.
After resting for the night, Zhao Hai’s group continued their travel. Nothing happened along the way. But in the towns that they visited, they heard rogue cultivators discussing the Ouyang Clan’s demise under the Ghost Cultivators. It was said that the Tyrant Blade Sect sent people to save the survivors of the clan. Now, the remaining members of the Ouyang Clan were sent to the headquarters of the sect. Nevertheless, the once illustrious Ouyang Clan has completely vanished from the map.
Hearing the rumors, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. He didn’t expect the sect to act so quickly. Only a day passed and the sect already made a move. Moreover, the information spread quickly. It seems like the sect was also behind this. Otherwise, rogue cultivators would have no way of knowing.
Zhao Hai didn’t care much about this information. He believes that the sect could deal with this matter well. By this point, Zhao Hai and the others were only 3 to 4 days away from reaching the deserted town.
For over two days, the group traveled very peacefully. Nobody came to attack them. This came as a surprise to Zhao Hai. He thought that the other sects would send people to attack him.
Zhao Hai sat in the carriage living room, drinking tea. In his hand was a jade slip. The jade slip didn’t contain a cultivation method, but instead it contained travel notes. It was written by a disciple. of the Tyrant Blade Sect. This disciple took traveling as a hobby, so he was able to write down the customs and traditions of various places and people.
Laura and the others were at the side using the computer. The computer was showing a popular TV series shown inside the Space. The protagonist of the series was interesting. The series was called Creation World God. And the name of the Creation World God was Zhao Hai. In other words, the series was filmed with Zhao Hai as the main subject.
Although the series was making things up, Laura and the others took great interest in it. Once in a while, they would talk about the series. At this time, Qiu Tie ran up to the roof of the carriage to practice. Then all of a sudden, Zhao Hai felt a small transmission token move. Zhao Hai used his consciousness to take the transmission token out. He saw that there was a message waiting to be received. Upon looking into it, the message said, “Wang Hu is in danger. Please come and help!”
Seeing the message, Zhao Hai knew that the message came from Wang Hu, the rogue cultivator he met in Maze Town’s underground labyrinth. Before he left, Zhao Hai left a communication token for him. He also told Wang Hu to look for him if he needs any help. Zhao Hai has forgotten about this matter, he didn’t expect to receive a message at this time.
Zhao Hai immediately turned his head to Laura and the others and said, “Laura, you continue traveling. Stop in the next town and wait for me. I need to head out.”
Laura nodded, then she asked, “What happened?”
Zhao Hai replied, “Someone I know from the trial needed help. I have to take a look.” Laura gave a nod. Then Zhao Hai disappeared in an instant.
The transmission token in Wang Hu’s hand also contained a tracking function. This allowed Zhao Hai to zone into Wang Hu’s location. When Zhao Hai reappeared, he couldn’t help but stare. This was because he was inside a huge cavern in the underground labyrinth. At this time, two groups of people were killing each other.
Zhao Hai frowned when he saw this. He could remember Wang Hu saying that caverns like these prohibited people from fighting. This was a place for everyone to rest. Even enemies wouldn’t fight each other inside the big caverns. So why were these people fighting?
At this time, Zhao Hai also saw Wang Hu. Wang Hu was currently resisting the attacks of ten people. The position where Zhao Hai appeared was next to a corpse. The corpse was holding the communication token that Zhao Hai gave to Wang Hu.
Zhao Hai retrieved the communication token and then he took his blade out and began to attack the people surrounding Wang Hu. It didn’t take long before ten individuals were cut in half.
The people in the hall also began to notice Zhao Hai’s presence, especially Wang Hu. He quickly approached Zhao Hai and said, “Mister, you’re here. That’s great!”
Zhao Hai looked at Wang Hu and said, “Brother Wang, what’s going on? Doesn’t his cavern forbid fighting? Why are people killing each other?”
Wang Hu smiled bitterly and said, “We’ve become a joke. The group that attacked us is a rogue cultivator alliance called the Ghost Shadow Gang. They’re a newly established group. However, their development is very quick. They’re now one of the biggest groups in the underground labyrinth. They forced all rogue cultivators to submit to them. Those who refused were attacked.”
Hearing this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but knit his brows. Because of his recent experiences, he’s very sensitive when it comes to Ghost Cultivators. So upon hearing the name ‘Ghost Shadow Gang’, Zhao Hai immediately felt uncomfortable. All this time, the attackers kept killing Wang Hu’s people.
Zhao Hai was surprised by the strength of these rogue cultivators. Their realms were quite high. All of them were at the late stages of the Clone Stage. Some of them have even reached the Soul Fusion Stage. These people were already considered as small powerhouses among rogue cultivators.
How did these people become so strong? Also, their realms seem to be unsteady, as if they had forcefully promoted their strength.
However, this wasn’t the time for Zhao Hai to think. People were getting killed in front of him. If he wanted to get to the bottom of this matter, then he would need to clean these people out first. With this thought in mind, Zhao Hai began his killing spree.
