Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1303
Chapter 1303 – Riverpond City
But how could the bugs just let the people from Base Number 5 withdraw safely? To the bugs, land wasn’t the most important thing. After all, the entire underground of the planet was their domain. To them, the area where Base Number 5 was built on wasn’t attractive. What they were attracted to were the people in Base Number 5.
The Bugs wanted to eat people in order to ingest their genes and evolve. Therefore, the main target of the bugs this time was the inhabitants of Base Number 5.
Now that the Cultivators in Base Number 5 have been routed, and their spirits totally crushed, the bugs began to chase them down with ease.
Several mosquito bugs were chasing behind Zheng Li. Although Zheng Li wanted to get free from them, he could not. This was because the strength of these mosquito bugs was similar to him.
Zheng Li was now despairing. He was alone, only the bugs were chasing behind him. And he was still very far away from another base. If this continued, then he would surely be overtaken by the bugs. He had just experienced a battle, so his energy was very low. He cannot support flying for a long time.
However, Zheng Li struggled for survival since childhood, so he didn’t know how to give up. He knew that opportunities were always at any corner. However, this opportunity might not come in a long time. If you give up, then this opportunity would disappear. As long as there was a chance for survival, Zheng Li wouldn’t give up.
When Zheng Li left Base Number 5, he headed directly towards Base Number 3, the nearest Base. A swarm of mosquito bugs were chasing him relentlessly, leaving him with no opportunity for rest.
At this time, Zheng Li discovered that large quant.i.ties of praying mantis bugs appeared in front of him. Although the strength of these praying mantises was inferior to the mosquitos, they were much more numerous. They were enough to tie down Zheng Li.
Zheng Li was also aware that if he was tied down by these mantises, then he would die. However, his current problem was that he didn’t have anywhere to hide. And flying straight upwards was impossible. Zheng Li was currently stuck.
At this time, a spatial rift appeared close to where Zheng Li was. Then Zhao Hai walked out of the rift. While Zheng Li was stunned, Zhao Hai quickly said, “Walk in, quick.” Then he pulled Zheng Li into the spatial rift. As Zheng Li vanished, the bugs were confused. They quickly buzzed around the general area where Zheng Li disappeared.
To the bugs, Zheng Li was their prey. Now that their prey had disappeared, they need to look for him.
While Zheng Li was confused about Zhao Hai’s presence, they appeared inside a cave. Inside the cave was a residence, it seems to have been built for some time.
Zheng Li sobered up. Then he looked at Zhao Hai in surprise and said, “Little Hai, how did you show up here? Where is this?”
Zhao Hai looked at Zheng Li and then smiled faintly, “I don’t know if Brother Zheng Li has heard of this place. But this is the Six Realms Battlefield!”
“The Six Realms Battlefield? This is the Six Realms Battlefield?” Zheng Li also heard about this place from a friend in Base Number 5. Although the man didn’t go to the Six Realms Battlefield, he told Zheng Li about it to show off. He said that being able to go to the Six Realms Battlefield was an affirmation of one’s strength.
Zhao Hai looked at Zheng Li’s reaction and smiled, “Right, this is the Six Realms Battlefield. I came here after the compet.i.tion. I’m resting and had the urge to contact Brother. However, I found that I couldn’t contact you. I immediately thought that something was wrong so I went to Base Number 5. I didn’t expect that the base had really fallen.”
When he heard Zhao Hai, Zheng Li couldn’t help but let out a long sigh as he said, “Fortunately, you came just in time. Otherwise, I would have fallen as well. Brother, I must say, I didn’t think that your s.p.a.ce magic was that strong. You can actually travel a very long distance.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “It’s nothing. But Brother, what do you plan to do now? Losing Base Number 5, isn’t that a bad thing for you?”
Zheng Li sighed and said, “It’s not only a bad thing, but it’s a very huge crime. Even if I return to the Cultivation Realm, I’m afraid I would still be punished. Now, those people should be thinking that I’m dead, and that’s not good too.”
Zhao Hai frowned and said, “Do you mean that if you return to the Cultivation Realm, then not only would you be punished, but your family as well?” Zheng Li didn’t say it like that, but Zhao Hai understood what he meant.
Zheng Li sighed and said ,”Correct.”
Zhao Hai thought for a moment, then he said, “Brother Zheng, how about this. I can return you to Seamount City and then follow you back to your family. Then I’ll send them to a base I’m planning to make in the Machine Field. There’s no need for you to go back to the Cultivation Realm. What do you think?”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Zheng Li stared. He understood what Zhao Hai wanted to do. Basically, he wanted Zheng Li to betray the Cultivation Realm. But to be honest, he hasn’t thought about this situation before.
In the World of Cultivation, the position of the Cultivation Realm was the highest. Even commoners of the Cultivation Realm felt proud about this even if they were treated as farm animals.
Now that Zhao Hai wanted him to betray the Cultivation Realm, Zheng Li couldn’t help but feel somewhat awkward. Zhao Hai just looked at him in silence. He didn’t urge Zheng Li to make a decision. He believed that Zheng Li was a smart person and he knew how to make a wise choice.
If Zheng Li returned to the Cultivation Realm, then he certainly wouldn’t have any good food to eat. Therefore, he only had one road left for him. Zhao Hai also knew that Zheng Li wasn’t attracted to the Machine Field. Therefore, he can only wait for Zheng Li to make a decision. If Zheng Li doesn’t want to transfer to the Machine Field, then Zhao Hai wouldn’t persuade him otherwise.
After some time, Zheng Li looked up at Zhao Hai and said, “Alright, we’ll move to the Machine Field. This way, they wouldn’t live in fear for the future. When shall we move them?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It’s best if we leave right now while the news of Fabio Planet hasn’t spread far. At this time, n.o.body is paying attention to your family. If other people start to pay attention to your family, then things might become troublesome.
Zheng Li nodded and said, “Alright. Thank you for the trouble.”
Zhao Hai laughed and said, “Brother Zheng, we’re not strangers. There’s no need to be polite. Let’s go.” Then he waved his hand and opened a spatial rift. Zhao Hai walked in first with Zheng Li following closely behind.
On a hill outside Seamount City, two people appeared. Zhao Hai was wearing Cultivator clothing so that he wouldn’t attract any attention. Meanwhile, Zheng Li was looking at the surroundings. This was his first time in Seamount City, so he was new to the view.
Zhao Hai released Liquid Silver and used its sword form as a flying sword and then he said, “Let’s head immediately to the transmission formation.”
Zheng Li nodded, then he took out his own flying sword and then stepped on it as they flew towards the city. Actually, identification checks were very rare in the Cultivation Realm, especially in small cities like Seamount City. If they check a person’s ident.i.ty, then the other party might find it as an insult. If the person was a powerful individual, then the city wouldn’t have anyone to blame but themselves.
Zhao Hai and Zheng Li had powerful auras, so n.o.body dared to check them. With this, the two were able to reach Seamount City’s transmission formation with ease. When they stood on the formation, Zheng Li told the operator, “To Half Moon Planet, Riverpond City.”
The operator easily adjusted the coordinates of the formation. The operator had records of all cities within the formation’s range. They could use this record to adjust the formation’s coordinates. It can be said that the transmission formation matrix was a huge net connecting the entire Cultivation Realm.
The formation’s operator didn’t say anything and just made preparations. Then a flash of white light appeared before Zhao Hai and Zheng Li appeared in another area. The place they appeared in was much more lively than in Seamount City. The transmission formation area was also larger. White light flashed from time to time as people appeared and disappeared from the formations.
The arrival of Zhao Hai and Zheng Li didn’t attract anyone’s attention. Once the two left the transmission formation, Zhao Hai looked at Riverpond City. Then he turned to Zheng Li and said, “This Riverpond City is bigger than Seamount City. Which Sect does it belong to?”
Zheng Li looked around him, then he sighed and said, “This is under the control of the Imperial Water Sect. It’s a medium-sized sect that controls over a dozen cities including Riverpond City here in Half Moon Planet.”
Zhao Hai nodded. Zheng Li looked deeply at Riverpond City, then he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Let’s go.” The two stepped on their flying swords and went outside the city.
Cultivators generally don’t use their flying swords inside a city. Flying swords could improve their speed, but it also consumed their energy. If there wasn’t an urgent matter, then Cultivators would walk instead.
However, using flying swords like Zhao Hai and Zheng Li wasn’t a rare case. At most, they would make some people look at their direction. The two quickly left Riverpond City. Outside the city were plenty of residences. These residences were usually where Cultivators lived. But these Cultivators were those who had low accomplishments. They don’t have the ability to find a place for their family inside the city, so they moved them just outside. In addition to being safe, it was also a sign of status. The closer one lived to a city, the more accomplishments a Cultivator had.
Back when Zheng Li was still a Foundation Establishment Cultivator, he was deemed too old and didn’t have potential to grow. Therefore, he never entered a sect. Naturally, his family wasn’t eligible to live in an area near the city.
Not only did his family live far from the city, they were also tasked to farm. These farms were under the Imperial Water Sect. They were workhorses for the sect.
Now, Zheng Li has become a Core Formation Cultivator, and this was done while he was in Fabio Planet. Therefore, he was able to establish his home near Riverpond City.
As soon as the two entered the residences, they heard the sound of yelling. Some people were actually fighting.
Chapter 1304 – Unexpected Calamity
The sound of fighting caused Zhao Hai and Zheng Li to stare. Although Zhao Hai wasn’t from the Cultivation Realm, he stayed here for a period of time. In the Cultivation Realm, it was rare for people to fight inside a city and in the residential areas around it. This was because these areas were controlled by the sect. If people fought in these areas, then they might destroy the properties of the sect. No sect wanted this to happen.
In the past, when Helian Da went to Zhao Hai to look for trouble, they even reached an agreement to fight outside Seamount City, in an uninhabited hill. They didn’t dare cause damage to the city and the residential areas. This was because they knew that even if the Seamount Faction was a small and weak sect, they would still not let them off for damaging their property.
But now, in the residential area outside Riverpond City, some people were actually violating the Imperial Water Sect’s rules. Who has such big guts?
The two quickly flew forward. Before they reached their destination, Zheng Li’s expression changed. This was because the fight was happening close to his home.
Upon seeing the two sides who were fighting, Zhao Hai and Zheng Li couldn’t help but stare. This was because the battle was a bit out of proportion. One side only had five people while the other had much much more. The latter party was surrounding the five people and sent relentless attacks towards them.
But what’s strange about the situation was that the five-man party was actually on the winning side. Although they had been surrounded, they were defending with no problem. Every strike made by the other party would be repelled, and the attacker might even be killed.
The five people were wearing dark-blue Cultivator robes. The style of the robes was very beautiful. Although they had differing weapons in their hands, all of them held the same dark blue flag. They used these flags to attack and defend. And when shaken, these flags would cause huge waves. To their enemies, whether they were using spells or magic artifacts, they had no way to break through these waves. These waves would also swallow one or two people. Naturally, if they couldn’t escape, these people would die.
In addition to the flags, the five also had an a.s.sortment of swords and shields. Their offensive and defensive cooperation was very good. Upon a.n.a.lyzing the situation, Zhao Hai didn’t feel strange about what was happening. This was because the attacking side only had Foundation Establishment Experts as their strongest members. There was also a huge difference between the quality of magic artifacts between the two sides.
Although the five people also had Foundation Establishment cultivation, their magic artifacts were high-grade. This caused their attacks and defenses to be powerful. In this case, it’s no wonder that the five were able to defend.
Meanwhile, when Zheng Li saw the five people, he couldn’t help but be stunned. Compared to Zhao Hai, he had more understanding regarding Riverpond City. Governing Riverpond City was a branch hall of the Imperial Water Sect. The standard clothing of the Imperial Water Sect was the dark-blue robes. Also, the sect’s weapons were the flags used by the five people. These flags were called the Imperial Water flags. Having these weapons meant that the five people were disciples of the Imperial Water Sect. If they weren’t Inner Sect disciples, then they were certainly from the Outer Sect.
As for those besieging the Imperial Water Sect’s disciples, Zheng Li knew them as well. These people were the residents living outside Riverpond City. Zheng Li lived here for quite some time, so he knew these people. Some of these people were friends of his father. Yet these people were attacking the people of the Imperial Water Sect. What was going on? Do they want to revolt? On the lands controlled by the Imperial Water Sect, those who attack their disciples would certainly be decapitated.
Zheng Li didn’t think about it too much as he looked around. The battlefield was also strange. It wasn’t far from his home, so why didn’t his family join the attack?
Zheng Li knew that people living in the residential areas had lived there for generations. Some of them were able to cultivate, but their talent wasn’t good so they were ignored. Since they cannot join the sect, they continued living here.
Because of this, the people living in this area were very united. All of them were living at the lowest level. Since they were poor, they had developed a culture of supporting each other. Now that five disciples of the Imperial Water were attacking them, then his family should be among the attackers. So why haven’t they shown up yet?
Upon thinking about this, Zheng Li’s heart couldn’t help but sink. He ignored the fight and immediately headed towards his home. Zhao Hai saw Zheng Li’s move and paused for a moment, then he quickly followed behind.
It didn’t take long before the two arrived outside Zheng Li’s house. The Zheng Family’s house looked very ordinary. It was a worn-out stone house with no special qualities to it whatsoever.
But inside the courtyard of this residence were three coffins. The courtyard has been transformed into a mourning hall. There were two people on the ground. One of them was lying on the ground, n.o.body knew if he was dead or alive. The other was crying constantly.
Seeing this scene, Zheng Li’s head blanked out. He lost all capacity to think. He even stumbled when he landed on the ground. The aura of a Core Formation Cultivator had disappeared.
Zhao Hai saw Zheng Li’s expression and knew that an accident had happened to his family. He also landed on the ground and supported Zheng Li as the two entered the house.
The two walked in, then Zheng Li went to the coffins first. When he saw who were inside, he quickly fainted from grief.
The coffins were newly-made. Inside the three coffins were three corpses, one male and two female. One of the two women was an elderly lady. Her hair was white while her clothes were looking very old. Calluses could be seen on her hands. It’s clear that she had lived her life doing hard jobs.
The other woman was also somewhat old. She had a healthy set of hair while her hands were also filled with calluses. As for the man, he was dressed in Cultivator robes. However, his robes were very shabby and grey. One could see that this Cultivator died in frustration. This man’s brow looked the same as Zheng Li. It seems like this man was Zheng Li’s father.
One could see at a glance that Zheng Li’s father has been killed because of the sword wound on his throat. Zhao Hai looked at the body of Zheng Li’s father and then turned to look at the five people in the sky. He was fully certain that this had something to do with those five people.
Zheng Li was unconscious, but Zhao Hai didn’t wake him up. Instead, he took him and entered the mourning hall. White cloth were hung in the hall. But on the walls of the mourning hall, instead of the word “Settle(奠)”, what was written was the character “Enmity(仇)”.
The character for enmity was written in blood. The blood red script on the white cloth made it very striking.
Inside the mourning hall were two people wearing hempen clothes. One of them was a man about 20-years old. He was currently on the ground rapidly breathing. His complexion was flushed and he was unconscious. At the same time, Zhao Hai noticed that the man’s right sleeve was empty. And seen on the right shoulder was blood. It was clear that his arm had been ripped off.
Kneeling at the side of this man was a girl. This girl’s age was smaller at about 15 or 16. The girl was pretty, she was bound to become a beautiful woman in the future. She was currently sobbing pitifully. If this scene was on Earth, then some strange people would turn into enraged werewolves in an instant.
Zhao Hai sighed, then he waved his hand as white light fell on the young man. When the white light vanished, the breath of the young man stabilized. His face also returned to its normal color. Then the young man opened his eyes. The crying girl had also noticed that there was someone else inside the hall.
Zhao Hai sent out a gentle shake of his spiritual force to wake Zheng Li up. Upon waking up, Zheng Li quickly grasped the situation. Then he looked at the young man and the young girl. He got out of Zhao Hai’s support and then went to the young man before holding his shoulder and saying, “Little Wu, how did this happen? What is all of this about?”
Zheng Li’s younger brother was named Zheng Wi. He looked at Zheng Li seemingly unconvinced that it was Zheng Li. Seeing this, Zheng Li shook Zheng Wu’s body and said, “Little Wu, tell me. How did this happen? Why did Grandmother, Father, and Mother die?”
After being shaken by Zheng Li, Zheng Wu sobered up. Then he cried out loud. His sobbing was even more pitiful than Zheng Li’s sister.
Zheng Wu cried for some time, then he said, “Big Brother, how did you come back? Father was killed by the Imperial Water Sect. Grandmother and Mother as well. Huhuhu. Brother, you need to avenge us.”
Zheng Li’s eyes were almost spitting fire as he said, “Imperial Water Sect, you’re dead!!’ Then he flew straight towards the five Imperial Water Sect disciples.
Zhao Hai didn’t follow behind him. The five disciples were only at Foundation Establishment. With Zheng Li’s cultivation, he could deal with them easily. There was no need for Zhao Hai to go. Instead, he decided to make clear of the matter.
Zhao Hai arrived beside Zheng Wu. Then he smiled and said ,”Little Wu? I’m your Big Brother’s friend, you can call me Zhao Hai. Can you tell me what happened? Why did the Imperial Water Sect kill your father?”
Zheng Wu naturally noticed that Zhao Hai was with Zheng Li. After sobbing for some time, he answered, “Big Brother Zhao, this is because the son of the Riverpond Branch’s Hall Master has taken a liking to my little sister. He wants to make Little Sister into a cultivation furnace. Father didn’t agree. So the Hall Master sent people to kill father. They also took my arm as well as killed Grandmother and Mother.”
