Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1255
Chapter 1255 – Half Succeeded
To be honest, Zhao Hai hasn’t thought of something like the Six Realms Battlefield existing. The Machine Field and the Cultivation Realm’s writings never mentioned such a place. After hearing Ma Rulong, Zhao Hai knew that this matter must have been held in great secrecy.
Ma Rulong, seemingly immersed in his memories, continued speaking, “In the Six Realms Battlefield, people would die every day. Because the Machine Field isn’t that strong, we can only rely on our numbers to defend our territory. But because of this, it’s impossible for us to expand.”
After he said this, Ma Rulong paused for some time as though he was recalling his time in the Six Realms Battlefield. Then he said, “In the Six Realms Battlefield, you fight any race. Besides people from our realm, you shouldn’t believe in anyone. Countless Mages and Warriors in the battlefield chose to die alongside their enemies since this is the only way for our realm to hold on. I stayed in the Six Realms Battlefield for three months. And in those three months, I almost died five times. And in that timeframe, I also went through hundreds of battles of different sizes. You can imagine what kind of place it is.”
Zhao Hai finally knew why Ma Rulong knew so much about the other realms. This was because he had fought against these people before. And it seems like they clashed more than one time.
Ma Rulong looked at Zhao Hai and said, “After you return, I’m afraid that you will also go to the Six Realms Battlefield. Little Hai, you need to go there so that our commoners wouldn’t become slaves to others. You go there to prove to everyone that the Machine Field couldn’t be easily provoked.”
Zhao Hai calmly nodded and said, “Yes, you can rest a.s.sured. If I’m arranged to go to the Six Realms Battlefield, I will definitely go.”
Seeing Zhao Hai’s calm reaction, Ma Rulong gave an appreciative nod as he said, “Alright. Go take a break. You still need to achieve good results in the ranking tournament.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he left. To be honest, he wasn’t too anxious to go to the Six Realms Battle and go all out like what Ma Rulong wanted. He has his own pace, and he liked to take his time.
The Six Realms Battlefield has a lot of treasures indeed, but for Zhao Hai, the amount of materials that can enter his eyes was too limited. Therefore, he wasn’t too anxious. Just like he said, if the Machine Field wanted him to go to the Six Realm Battlefield, then he will go. But if the Machine Field doesn’t send him, then he wouldn’t take the initiative to request service.
In Zhao Hai’s view, in order to ensure that the commoners of the Machine Field would maintain their current lives, killing in the Six Realms Battlefield wasn’t enough. Strengthening the common population should be first.
In fact, Zhao Hai doesn’t think that fighting in the Six Realms Battlefield was necessary for the greater good of the Machine Field. Fighting in the Six Realm Battlefield only exhausted the Machine Field’s talents. This caused the Machine Field’s strength to lag behind the other realms. Relying on battleships and mechs for the realm’s strength wasn’t good for the realm’s further progress.
But in the end, Zhao Hai was still someone from the Machine Field. He would still go to the Six Realms Battlefield for the benefit of the Machine Field. In any case, he would have a lot of free time after the compet.i.tion. He wasn’t worried about going to the battlefield.
To be honest, Zhao Hai was very curious about the Six Realms Battlefield. He wants to know what the battlefield looks like as well as its current situation.
Besides this reason, he also wants to go to the Six Realm Battlefield in order to collect more Undead. The Six Realms Battlefield was a place where constant battles take place. Naturally, there would also be a lot of deaths happening there. From what Zhao Hai can see, these dead people were a waste if not utilized. If Zhao Hai was able to make these people into Undead, then n.o.body in the World of Cultivation would dare annoy him.
While he thought about this, Zhao Hai returned to his own room. The rooms had already been pre-a.s.signed. Although the Machine Field inst.i.tute had undergone a huge renovation, the inside of the rooms was still the same. Zhao Hai stayed in the same room he stayed in before.
Xiong Li and the others were waiting for Zhao Hai outside his room. Upon seeing Zhao Hai return, Xiong Li and the others immediately walked over as Xiong Li asked, “Little Hai, why did the team leader call you over?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It’s nothing important. Let’s head in and talk. I’m afraid the team leader is going to call us over later to have a drink.” Everyone’s face was smirking. Then at this time Lu Dingtian said, “Never seen the world.”
Zhao Hai and the other gawked, then they all laughed simultaneously. They understand what Lu Dingtain was talking about. The team leader and the other haven’t seen the world. Only a Core Formation expert’s death and they were already celebrating.
This statement wasn’t funny in itself, but when Lu Dingtian said it, it became hilarious. Lu Dingtian was a quiet person. He had a character that would make it seem like he’ll be uncomfortable if he spoke more than a single word. Now that such a person said a string of words, Zhao Hai and the others couldn’t help but laugh.
The group laughed as they entered Zhao Hai’s room. Upon closing the door, Zhao Hai immediately turned his head to Xiong Li and the others and said, “Boss, you and the others shouldn’t partic.i.p.ate in the tournament. As soon as you’re declared as qualified to enter the tournament, immediately forfeit and then return to the Machine FIeld. Close up and practice your cultivation methods.”
XIong Li and the others stared. They don’t understand why Zhao Hai was so anxious this time. Then in a low voice, Zhao Hai told them about the Six Realms Battlefield. Then he said, “It’s possible that when the compet.i.tion ends, they will send us to the battlefield. Therefore, you need to practice your cultivation method as soon as possible.”
Xiong Li and the others looked at Zhao Hai in shock. This was the first time they heard about the Six Realms Battlefield. But since they believed that Zhao Hai wouldn’t deceive them, they immediately nodded and said, “Alright, rest a.s.sured. We know what to do.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he waved his hand, taking out several sheets of papers. Then he handed the papers over to everyone and said, “These cultivation methods are compatible with your body’s attribute. Third Brother, you can teach Sixth Brother your Divine Fire Dragon Art. Also, please write it down for me.”
Dongfang Yu nodded and said, “Alright, I’ll do it now.” Then he walked out.
However, Zhao Hai held him back and said, “It’s fine, there’s still time. Right, you can all take this and use it when you go back and close up.” Then he took out several bottles and gave it to his brothers. These were all potions that are beneficial to cultivation.
Dongfang Yu naturally wouldn’t be polite as they all took their own bottle and stored it inside their spatial items. Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Let’s go and have a drink with the team leader. When the ranking tournament officially begins, you head back to the Machine Field. And when I return, let’s head to the Six Realms Battlefield together. Let’s teach the other fellows a lesson.”
Xiong Li and the others laughed. They weren’t that worried about heading to the Six Realms Battlefield. The main reason for this confidence was because Zhao Hai would be with them. As long as Zhao Hai was there, they don’t have anything to worry about.
When the group went out of the room, they saw that several tables filled with wine and dishes had already been prepared outside. But to be honest, when Xiong LI and the others saw the wine and dishes, they couldn’t help but frown a bit. This was because the dishes and wine weren’t a lot.
At this time, Ma Rulong also walked out of his room. He also saw the lack of food and wine on the tables, but he wasn’t surprised. Then he sighed and said, “It’s hard for us here in the Cultivation Realm. It’s not easy to get food in this place. Little Hai, if you eat and drink these things, then we might as well drink water.”
As soon as everyone heard Ma Rulong, they couldn’t help but laugh. To be honest, now that they had drank Zhao Hai’s liquor, they were somewhat spoiled.
Zhao Hai laughed and said, “Team Leader, I’ll take care of it.” Then after he said that, a large number of wines and dishes appeared. Everyone didn’t hold back and immediately started to partake in the food. Since Zheng Li wasn’t present this time, everyone was a bit rowdy. The other team leaders were giving Zhao Hai’s toasts and chatted with him, trying to establish a closer relationship.
Although the status of these team leaders in the Machine FIeld wasn’t low, it wasn’t high as well. Naturally, they couldn’t compare to Ma Rulong. Now that Zhao Hai’s rise was unstoppable, these people took the chance to establish a good relationship with him. These people weren’t stupid, they knew that they could benefit from this in the future.
As soon as Zhao Hai saw these people, he knew what they were doing. However, he didn’t ignore them and instead chatted with them and established contacts. He even made sure to take note about their names as well as their origins.
Xiong Li and the others looked at Zhao Hai and couldn’t help but sigh. They began to think about what kinds of things Zhao Hai experienced in the lower realms. How was he able to handle everything?
Not only Xiong Li and the others, Ma Rulong was also sighing. Zhao Hai gave him a strange feeling, someone who couldn’t be completely understood. But Ma Rulong could see that Zhao Hai had some sentiment towards the Machine Field and had no favorable impression towards the Cultivation Realm. This made Ma Rulong relieved.
There were plenty of talents in the Machine Field that transferred to the Cultivation Realm. This wasn’t a rare thing. Ma Rulong was afraid that Zhao Hai would settle in the Cultivation Realm later on. He told Zhao Hai about the Six Realms Battlefield in order to make Zhao Hai feeling a sense of belonging to the Machine Field. But from what Ma Rulong could see, it seems like he had already half succeeded.
Chapter 1256 – Poisoned!
It wasn’t unreasonable for Ma Rulong to think that he had half-succeeded. Ma Rulong found out that Zhao Hai already had some sense of belonging to the Machine Field. And this wasn’t only because Zhao Hai has a woman who was from the realm.
The moment Zhao Hai sees himself as someone from the Machine Field, only then would Ma Rulong be successful.
But Ma Rulong had yet to succeed. This was because he had underestimated Zhao Hai’s mental capability. Zhao Hai experienced a lot of things and his mind has become as firm as rock. Just a few words from Ma Rulong wouldn’t make Zhao Hai excited. Fighting desperately against the other realms? That’s impossible for Zhao Hai. And Ma Rulong realized this, so he reckoned that everything he had done until now only brought him halfway to succeeding.
Actually, Ma Rulong didn’t deceive Zhao Hai. The Six Realms Battlefield was truly the main fighting stage of the World of Cultivation. Moreover, a lot of Machine Field pract.i.tioners perish there. There were various geniuses from great families that went there to temper themselves to become formidable Mages and Warriors. Moreover, they learned how to effectively coordinate with each other. It can be said that those people were the true elites of the Machine Field. If the Machine Field took them out of the Six Realms Battlefield and used them in the realm, then they wouldn’t be easily bullied. After all, these people were as strong as a thousand battleships.
However, it should be noted that even if this power couldn’t be underestimated, it was heavily controlled by the families of the Machine Field. Why were there many powerful Ascenders that haven’t entered the Six Realms Battlefield? This was because these Ascenders weren’t under the control of any high-ranked family. And even if they managed to enter the battlefield, they would still be recalled soon after.
What the Machine Field’s higher-ups needed were obedient people. They’d rather have someone obedient rather than someone who was strong but was uncontrollable.
There was a valid reason why the Machine Field’s higher-ups chose to do this. The density of spiritual qi in the Six Realms Battlefield is very strong, it was a place very suitable for practice. Whether it be Mages or Warriors, practicing in the Six Realms Battlefield was very beneficial. Besides the density of spiritual qi, the battlefield was also rich in medicinal plants. Even if they hadn’t been processed and were taken directly, these plants would still improve one’s cultivation speed.
In this case, if the Machine Field’s higher ups don’t control which person to let in to the battlefield, then these uncontrolled folks would get stronger and stronger. And then there would come a point where they could no longer be commanded, and then they would be able to wrestle for influence in the Realm.
Because of this, the Machine Field’s higher-ups decided to have firm control on who to send to the Six Realms Battlefield.
Ma Rulong becoming the team leader for the rookies wasn’t accidental. He actually received an order from the Machine Field’s higher-ups to be in constant contact with the rookies. As long as Ma Rulong doesn’t have any issue with a particular rookie, then they would be enlisted to enter the Six Realms Battlefield. But if Ma Rulong thought that the person was unreliable, then there’s no knowing if they can ever enter the battlefield.
However, the Machine Field’s higher-ups sent the wrong person this time. Although Ma Rulong was very loyal to the Machine Field, he also stayed in the Six Realms Battlefield. He knew much more about the situation there than the Machine Field’s higher-ups.
For the Machine Field’s higher-ups, the battlefield was a place where they lost their powerful experts. However, these losses were reduced to mere numbers. But for Ma Rulong, these losses were his allies, his brothers!
When two different emotions head for the same goal, then the final result would naturally be different. Ma Rulong doesn’t care about loyalty like the Machine Field’s higher-ups. What he wants was a strong person to go to the Six Realms Battlefield and avenge those who died there. He wanted to vent air!
Because of this consideration, Ma Rulong told Zhao Hai about the Six Realms Battlefield in a manner that only resulted in half-success.
Ma Rulong was quite impatient in this situation. He knew that normally, it would be impossible for Zhao Hai to enter the Six Realms Battlefield. But if he said a few good words about Zhao Hai, then entry to the battlefield might be a possibility.
With this thought in mind, Ma Rulong couldn’t help but down a whole gla.s.s of wine. He was thinking whether he should support Zhao Hai or not.
To be honest, although the Six Realms Battlefield was filled with battle, it was also a good place for practice. If Zhao Hai went there, then he would be able to rapidly increase in strength.
But after thinking about his hardworking comrades back in the Six Realms Battlefield, Ma Rulong finally decided to help Zhao Hai in. Even if Zhao Hai would be there for a short time, he would still be able to reduce the pressure felt by the Machine Field’s people there.
Zhao Hai noticed that Ma Rulong was somewhat silent, but he didn’t mind it. Back when Ma Rulong talked about the Six Realms Battlefield, his tone was somewhat solemn.
As the party continued, and people were chatting and drinking, one person suddenly coughed loudly and then vomited blood. Moreover, the blood was blackened.
Zhao Hai stared, this was obviously a poisoning. He immediately flew towards the person and then took out a gla.s.s of water.
The man’s face began to turn black. When Zhao Hai gave him the gla.s.s of water, his condition began to calm down. The black lines on his face also slowly subsided.
However, besides Zhao Hai, the people in the courtyard had yet to catch up on what was going on. Some haven’t even put their gla.s.ses down as they stared at Zhao Hai.
At this time, Ma Rulong responded. He went to Zhao Hai’s side and said, “Little Hai, what happened?”
Zhao Hai said solemnly, “Poison.” Then he turned his head and looked at the man’s wine gla.s.s. Then he smelled the liquor inside it and found out that this wasn’t his wine.
Then he looked under the table and saw a small bottle. The bottle wasn’t among the ones he took out. It seems like the liquor bought by the two Mages of the inst.i.tute. Zhao Hai took up the bottle, smelled it and then drank its contents.
Zhao Hai’s action gave Xiong Li and the others a scare. They had an idea of what happened by watching Zhao Hai’s movements. They knew that the bottle had the poisoned liquor. But Zhao Hai actually drank it. Xiong Li hastily yelled, “Little Hai, you’re insane!” However, he didn’t have enough time to stop Zhao Hai from drinking the poisoned liquor.
After Zhao Hai drank the liquor, he swished it in his mouth before swallowing. Then he shook his head and said, “The taste of this wine isn’t very good. This man must have drank rarely, or else he wouldn’t drink this liquor.”
At the same time, the moment the liquor entered Zhao Hai’s mouth, a prompt was heard in his brain, “Deadly poison detected inside host’s body. Detoxifying. Detoxification success. a.n.a.lyzing. Poison has an energy absorbing ability, swallowing the host’s spiritual qi and turning it into deadly poison. It will make the host faint before killing him.”
Zhao Hai put the bottle down, then he turned to Ma Rulong and said, “This liquor has been poisoned. It swallows spiritual qi and makes people faint. It’s quite fatal as well. Let me look at those dishes.” Then he took a bite of the dishes that had been bought outside.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “These dishes are also poisoned. Moreover, the poison is different. It’s also fatal.”
Although Ma Rulong had no idea why Zhao Hai was fine, but after seeing that the man was fine after Zhao Hai gave him the cup of water, he knew that Zhao Hai must have a type of universal antidote on him. Ma Rulong also believed in Zhao Hai’s words, his expression changed as he said, “Bring those two guys here.”
The other team leaders were all startled right now. They immediately searched all directions for the two Mages. Before long, the two were found, but they had already been killed by the poison.
The bodies of the two Mages were completely black. Ma Rulong’s expression darkened. If the food didn’t look unappetizing, and Zhao Hai didn’t have any experience with poison, then the entire Machine Field’s delegation would have been wiped out today.
Zhao Hai looked at Ma Rulong’s expression, then he smiled and said, “Team Leader, if you agree, I can turn them into Undead. The Undead don’t lie, perhaps we can find out what’s going on.”
Ma Rulong nodded, “Alright. Whether they were killed or committed suicide, we still need to know who wants to poision us.”
Zhao Hai nodded and then wrapped the two corpses with black gas. When the gas disappeared, the two were already standing up. The black on their faces disappeared, it was as if the two were alive. However, they were no longer breathing.
Ma Rulong couldn’t help but be surprised with Zhao Hai’s technique. But he had no time to ask about it, instead he looked at the revived Mages and asked, “Is it you who poisoned us?”
The two shook their heads and one of them said, “We are unaware about the poison. We just went to the place where we can buy food and wine. The owner of the place invited us for some drinks. We don’t know what happened next.”
Ma Rulong nodded and let out a sigh of relief. It’s good that they weren’t spies. Zhao Hai looked at Ma Rulong and said, “Team Leader, I’ll go and take that shop’s owner. We’ll slowly investigate this matter.”
Ma Rulong said, “Do you think those people are still there?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “They’ll be there. Maybe they just changed clothes. I’ll return quickly.” Then he disappeared in place. Ma Rulong looked at the place Zhao Hai disappeared from with a strange expression. Zhao Hai was becoming more and more mysterious in his eyes.
It didn’t take long before Zhao Hai reappeared. He waved his hand and threw several people on the ground. They were all wearing normal Cultivator clothing. They look nothing special.
