Chapter 2112 – Teleporting to Lu Sheng
Although Lu Sheng discovered that Zhao Hai’s spiritual qi density was similar to his, he also knew that Zhao Hai was only at the Soul Fusion Stage. Because of this, he still has the confidence to deal with Zhao Hai. He also believed that Zhao Hai couldn’t fly and couldn’t do instantaneous movements. Therefore, Lu Sheng was betting on his artifacts to win.
But at the same time, Lu Sheng has to recognize that Zhao Hai’s blade technique was formidable. He still needed to look for opportunities to kill him. Otherwise, once Zhao Hai uses his blade to stop his attack, then the battle would continue.
What Lu Sheng needed to do right now was to leave Zhao Hai’s blade qi encirclement. Only once he breaks through Zhao Hai’s siege could he position himself where he could attack without being attacked.
Although Lu Shen knows that Zhao Hai possesses a flying beast, he wasn’t afraid. The reason Zhao Hai was able to play around him last time was because he just broke through to the Teleportation Stage. He still hasn’t adapted to flight. If Zhao Hai released his flying beasts this time, Lu Sheng would be able to easily deal with them.
Thinking of this, Lu Sheng used his sword to disperse that blade qi around him. Then he used his mastery of space to teleport out. His figure flashed and left Zhao Hai’s encirclement. Then he flew in mid-air.
Zhao Hai looked at Lu Sheng’s movement and couldn’t help but stare. Seeing Zhao Hai’s stunned look, Lu Sheng laughed, “Zhao Hai, did you forget that I’m at the Teleportation Stage? I can fly while you can only watch below. Go release your flying beasts, let’s see how I kill them.”
Zhao Hai looked at Lu Sheng and sneered, “Frog at the bottom of the well.” After he said that, Zhao Hai’s figure moved and also flew in the air. The two were now flying in the air, separated by a distance of 100 meters.
Lu Sheng saw Zhao Hai flying and couldn’t help but be stunned. He exclaimed, “How is this possible! How can you fly? This is impossible.”
Zhao Hai sneered, “Although I haven’t arrived at the Teleportation Stage, my spiritual qi isn’t worse than yours. Why can you fly while I can’t?”
Lu Sheng was stunned for a while and stopped talking. He felt that what Zhao Hai said was reasonable. Flight has nothing to do with cultivation but instead with the concentration of spiritual qi. It just so happened that the spiritual qi of Teleportation Stage cultivators were enough for them to fly. Although Zhao Hai hasn’t reached the teleportation stage, his spiritual qi was similar to a Teleportation Stage cultivator. With this, he could fly.
Lu Sheng’s complexion changed. Then his voice turned cold, “Even if you can fly, it will be the same. I would still kill you.” After saying that, Lu Sheng waved his sword and attacked Zhao Hai. At the same time, Zhao Hi lifted his blade and welcomed the attack.
The two fought for more than ten rounds. Lu Sheng’s complexion was already ugly. He didn’t think Zhao Hai would be so strong.
What Lu Sheng didn’t know was that ascenders held an advantage in mid-air battles compared to people in the True Spirit Realm. Ascenders have long accustomed to being able to fly while the people of the True Spirit Realm had a different experience. This advantage was especially visible on a genius like Zhao Hai. Ten Lu Shengs wouldn’t be enough to fight Zhao Hai.
Lu Sheng’s defensive domain has been pressed to a very small area. Several of Zhao Hai’s blade qi were almost cutting through. This made Lu Sheng sweat. But he didn’t stop resisting. His eyes were still bright as though he was planning something.
The two fought for more than ten rounds before Zhao Hai’s blade broke through Lu Sheng’s defensive circle. A blade cut Lu Sheng’s shoulder. Seeing that his attack came through, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but show a smile.
At this time, Lu Sheng’s eyes flashed. His body disappeared with a flash and reappeared behind Zhao Hai. He didn’t pause and slashed at Zhao Hai’s neck.
However, Lu Sheng couldn’t show a happy expression. He could feel that his sword didn’t touch anything. This meant that his attack didn’t connect with Zhao Hai. He only slashed Zhao Hai’s afterimage.
At this moment, Zhao Hai appeared in front of Lu Sheng. Lu Sheng was startled. He quickly retreated and felt his heart turn cold. He looked down and found a blade stuck to his heart. Then blood gushed out from his chest like a fountain.
Lu Sheng stared at this development. It took him a while to understand what happened. He looked at Zhao Hai in confusion, then he muttered, “How is this possible? This is teleportation. How did you do it?”
Zhao Hai sneered, “You’re wondering if I reached the Teleportation Realm? Well let me tell you that I haven’t. However, you forgot that there are divergent abilities in this world. My divergent ability is spatial control. I can teleport on my own. You didn’t know anything about me, but you dared to attack. Lu Sheng, it’s a miracle that you still lived until now.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Lu Sheng couldn’t help but vomit blood. He pointed at Zhao Hai and said, “You, you….” Then his body began to fall down.
Zhao Hai looked at Lu Sheng’s corpse and sneered, “You think you can kill me? This Zhao Hai’s life isn’t cheap.” Then Zhao Hai waved his hand and sent Lu Sheng’s corpse to the Space. At the same time, he descended from the sky.
Just as Zhao Hai stepped foot on the ground, he heard several people flying from a distance. He immediately guessed that they were reinforcements from the Tyrant Blade Sect. After all, this was still inside the territory of the sect. Learning that someone provoked Zhao Hai, the local branch of the sect needed to send experts. Since the local town doesn’t have any experts, it took quite some time before skilled disciples arrived.
Zhao Hai doesn’t blame them for being late. His battle with Lu Sheng didn’t take a long time. In fact, these people were early to arrive.
Zhao Hai immediately let Laura and the others out. As soon as Laura and the others were taken out, a few black-clothed cultivators appeared on Whitehead Mountain. Before long, the group found Zhao Hai. They quickly descended to the ground. There were six people present, all of them were at the Teleportation Stage.
When the group stepped on the ground, Zhao Hai cupped his fist and said, “Zhao Hai has seen the Senior Brothers. I will definitely remember your help today.”
The leader of the group was a 30-year-old looking man. He has a thin copper-colored face and a serious expression. He returned Zhao Hai’s greeting, “Junior Brother, I heard a report that someone has kidnapped your wives.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Just a rowdy clown. I’ve already dealt with them.”
The leader knit his brows and said, “Junior Brother, this isn’t a joking matter. I heard that the assailant is a Teleportation Stage expert. What condition did you reach, given that your wives have been returned?”
Zhao Hai stared, he didn’t expect the other party to reach this conclusion. He smiled faintly as he shook his head, “Senior Brother, you’re thinking too much. I actually know that person. Maybe you have also heard their name. It’s Lu Sheng. He came here to take revenge for our previous fight. Even if he proposes some conditions, I would never accept it.”
The leader stared, his expression changed as he asked, “You’re saying that you killed Lu Sheng?”
Zhao Hai nodded. Then he waved his hand and Lu Sheng appeared right beside him. Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Senior Brother, take a look. This is Lu Sheng. Now he’s my Undead.”
The leader immediately felt the death qi on Lu Sheng. He also heard before that Zhao Hai could turn people into Undead. Seeing Lu Sheng, the leader couldn’t help but breathe in cold air. This was Lu Sheng, a Teleportation Stage cultivator. In the end, he was turned into Undead by Zhao Hai. If he didn’t see it with his eyes, he wouldn’t have believed that it happened.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and received the Undead Lu Sheng. Then he smiled and said, “Does Senior Brother believe me now? I didn’t lie to you.”
The leader looked at Zhao Hai and muttered, “How is this possible? How did you do it?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “You forgot about our sect’s blade tokens. This time, to keep my safety, my Masters gave me a blade token. My wives have also been given similar tokens. Lu Sheng was lucky that he managed to capture them.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, the leader of the reinforcements showed an enlightened expression. Then he laughed and said, “I see. I didn’t expect Lu Sheng to fall under the blade token. I think he forgot that disciples of the Tyrant Blade Sect often carry blade tokens with them. Junior Brother, your blade token is given by the Yin Yang Elders. Lu Sheng deserves his bad luck.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly. He doesn’t want them to know about his true strength, so he used the blade token as a reason. In fact, when Laura and the others were captured by Lu Sheng, although Zhao Hai was a bit anxious and a little angry, he didn’t worry very much. He knew that Laura and the others carried blade tokens with them. If it weren’t for the fact that they were inside a town, they would have shredded Lu Sheng’s body with their blade tokens.
Zhao Hai looked at the leader and said, “May I know Senior Brother’s name? Senior Brothers have worked hard today. I’d like to invite you to the town to share a few drinks.”
The leader smiled faintly and said, “This one is Tie Gong from Ji Town’s branch hall. These are my junior brothers. I have long heard about Junior Brother Zhao’s wines. I’ll make sure to drink as much as I can.”
Zhao Hai laughed and nodded, “Then I’ll make sure to satisfy Senior Brother.” Tie Gong and the others cupped their fists towards Zhao Hai. After that, Tie Gong led his group back to the previous town.
It was only then that Zhao Hai turned his head to Laura and the others, as well as Qiu Tie who was also taken along with the women. Cai’er just pulled all of them to the Space to escape. Naturally, they wouldn’t want Qiu Tie to know about the Space, so when they were pulled in, Cai’er made Qiu Tie faint. He hasn’t woken up yet.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and released his demon horse. Then he said, “Wake Qiu Tie up. Then we’ll return.” Laura complied and took out spatial water and gently sprayed it on Qiu Tie’s face. Before long, Qiu Tie opened his eyes.
After Qiu Tie woke up, the first thing he did was to pull his blade out and look at his surroundings. When he saw Zhao Hai, his eyes showed a surprised expression. He quickly received his blade and said, “Young Master, you’re back. I’ve failed you. I cannot protect the Mistresses.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Little Tie, you did well. Your response is also quick. Alright, stop thinking about it. Let’s go back.” After saying that, he patted Qiu Tie’s shoulder before hoisting him up on a demon horse. Laura and the others also got on their mounts before the group travelled towards the town.
Before long, the group arrived at the town and returned to the courtyard. Tie Gong and the others were already waiting for Zhao Hai’s group. Tie Gong and the others were curiously inspecting Zhao Hai’s carriage. Their mouths couldn’t help but open in marvel.
Seeing Zhao Hai return, Tie Gong couldn’t help but sigh and said, “Junior Brother, your carriage is really fantastic. It seems to be a mobile home. But traveling like this is a bit inconvenient.”
Zhao Hai replied, “It’s a bit inconvenient, but if I use it, I can enjoy the comfort of home while outside. Also, I’m used to traveling like this in the lower realms. After arriving in the sect, I modified my carriage and it turned out like this. I made Senior Brother laugh.”
Tie Gong shook his head and said, “I didn’t laugh. Junior Brother, can you get me a carriage like this? I’ll provide all the materials.”
Hearing this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile, “That’s easy. But it would have to wait after I return to the sect. Moreover, Senior Brother doesn’t need to have the exact same carriage as me. You can design it as you like. When the time comes, I can help you refine it.”
Tie Gong showed a happy expression, “Good, then I’ll thank Junior Brother in advance. My Master’s birthday is coming. I don’t know what gift to give him. If Junior Brother can refine the carriage before that, I would use it as a gift. But I don’t know when it can be refined. Can you do it within five years?”
Zhao Hai stared, he quickly replied, “I’ll refine it immediately after I return to the sect. It shouldn’t take a long time. Senior Brother can rest assured.”
