Chapter 47 - The Regret of Chen Tianshan
Chapter 47 - The Regret of Chen Tianshan
The army of cavalry had occupied the place of Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree!
Not only did the scene of army mowing down everyone in their path throw the colossally huge beasts on defense into a panic, the onlookers in every corner of the world held their breath watching the mighty army that dreaded nothing.
Everyone stared at Gu Hai in inexplicable shock, as if trying to etch Gu Hai's face into their memory.
In a distant square...
Great Elder and Bodhisattva Lian Sheng were rendered speechless.
"Gu Hai?" repeated the Great Elder in a cold tone.
"Ninth son of Elder Guanqi, is Ninth Young Master the first generation ninth son? He seems somewhat disappointing!?" asked Bodhisattva Lian Sheng curiously.
The Great Elder remained silent and didn't utter another word.
Meanwhile, a group of people rushed over from the back.
"Great Elder, what to do? The Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree has been occupied by the outsider!"
"Great Elder, are we going to take action!?"
"Great Elder, the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree is the only longevity herb of our Weiqi Empyrean Court!"...
Being robbed of the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, everyone was anxious, but even more shocked and furious. As the Great Elder had forbidden everyone from taking action no matter what, all they could do was implore Great Elder.
Great Elder remained silent for a while, looking at the sky.
"Since its Little Nine who lost the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, he should recover it himself!" stated the Great Elder coldly, rejecting the request of the people behind him.
"Great Elder, that is the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, we-!"
"Okay, withdraw!" Great Elder sounded cold.
Everyone glanced at one another, their faces covered with a unwilling looks. Looking at Gu Hai in the sky, their faces were also gained expressions of resentment.
"Hey!? What does Gu Hai want to do?" a sliver of surprise showed up on Bodhisattva Lian Sheng's face.
Atop a peak...
Great Wisdom King with his subordinates dressed in sun-patterned black robe looked at the sky together.
"Really, Great Wisdom king, that person really seems to be holding Empress Wa!?"
"Yes, moreover, it seems Empress Wa’s life is hanging by a thread!?"
"What should we do? Great Wisdom King, should we take action?"
"Great Wisdom King...!" The congregation of men dressed in sun-patterned black robes cried anxiously.
"Shut up!" ordered Great Wisdom King coldly.
Everyone was taken by surprise.
"Yes, we were too talkative, Great Wisdom King's all-seeing insight can see through better than us!" a man dressed in sun-patterned black robe said immediately, ashamed.
Great Wisdom King didn't bother to pay much attention to them, and kept on staring at the sky.
As everyone turned their gaze at the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, they suddenly saw Gu Hai do something, suddenly surprising the congregation of sun-patterned black-robed men.
"Oh!? What is he doing?"
Meng Tai, Ninth Young Master, and everyone else who had been routed to one side, gazed at Gu Hai in deep resentment. The Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree was stolen from them by Gu Hai, just like that. Everyone's faces were covered with unwilling looks.
But in the next moment, Meng Tai's eyes widened in shock, "What? Is he crazy? What is he doing?"
What they saw was the general on which Gu Hai stood, bending its head closer to the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, bringing Gu Hai next to the tree.
"Little Rou, don't sleep, wake up, don't sleep!" cried Gu Hai.
While speaking, Gu Hai stretched his hand out and picked a watermelon-sized Golden Saturn Peach.
The tree branch of the picked Golden Saturn Peach suddenly bloomed with dazzling light.
Paying no heed to the dazzling light, Gu Hai placed the Golden Saturn Peach in Little Rou's mouth.
"Benefactor!" Little Rou mumbled weakly.
"Open your mouth and eat, eat!" said Gu Hai.
Little Rou's eyes remained closed, but she unconsciously opened her mouth. The Golden Saturn Peach in Little Rou's mouth seemingly melted upon entering her mouth, dissolving into a pulpy golden juice, and flowed into Little Rou's mouth.
The Saturn Peach went down Little Rou's throat just like water.
Little Rou's figure trembled, radiating a golden glow.
"Has Gu Hai gone crazy?! He gave that Golden Saturn Peach to a demon servant?!" Not far away, Meng Tai beat his chest in sorrow.
"Outrageous!" Ninth Young Master was also distraught.
The Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree would only bear ten fruits once in a century. In a century, there would only be ten fruits, one of which had been given to that demon servant? A demon servant who was worth nothing?
"Throne Master, that is, that is the Hundred Years Longevity Peach!" Chen Tianshan looked on afar with eager eyes, endlessly anxious.
Gao Xianzhi, on the other hand, was suddenly absorbed in thought, "Perhaps following Gu Hai was a pretty good choice?"
Around the hidden world, numerous cultivators eyes went wide. Countless outsiders gazed at Gu Hai in anger.
Gu Hai was too extravagant!
He even left extravagance far behind! The Hundred Years Longevity Peach was a longevity spirit herb, it wasn't just some healing spirit herb.
Looking at the trembling Little Rou, she seemed to have improved a lot. Suddenly, his face gleamed with joy as he stretched his hand out and once again picked another Golden Saturn Peach.
And just like before, the picked Golden Saturn Peach was sent into Little Rou's mouth.
In a trance, Little Rou opened her mouth and swallowed the golden peach. As the Saturn Peach didn't have any seed and melted away upon entering the mouth, it quickly made its way to Little Rou's stomach.
"Another? Another? Gu Hai, you prodigal bastard!" cursed Meng Tai looking from afar in a low voice.
We busted our asses in the battle, devised many schemes, yet didn't get even one Hundred Years Longevity Peach. And Gu Hai, you actually gave them, again and again, to an insignificant demon servant, just to save her. That's a Hundred Years Longevity Peach! It's worth a couple of towns together in the outside world!! Many people will go crazy for it, yet you fed it an insignificant demon? You prodigal bastard!
Countless cultivators on the ground were also muddle-headed at this moment. How can you squander more?
At the square...
"Great Elder, Great Elder, are we still not going to take any action, all the Hundred Years Longevity Peaches will be picked clean!"
"Great Elder, let's take action!" ...
"Shut up!" shouted Great Elder coldly.
Everyone shut their mouths bitterly. Looking at the sky, their eyes flashed with resentment. Even for a Weiqi Empyrean Court disciple, obtaining a Hundred Years Longevity Peach was extremely difficult. But now, they had been wasted away one after another. How could they not be annoyed by this scene?
"This Gu Hai is evil, but merciful as well!? He is truly a complex person!" Unable to perceive Gu Hai's character, Bodhisattva Lian Sheng shook his head.
Atop a peak...
"Great Wisdom King, is that man saving her?" Hundred Years Longevity Peach? Can he really bear it!?"
"Yes, two of them. Ahhh! A third one, this is really surprising!"
"Great Wisdom King, if she is really Empress Wa, then what to do with this guy...?"...
The congregation of sun-patterned, black-robed men who were looking at the sky also didn't know what to say.
Staring at the sky, Great Wisdom King calmly said, "Saving Empress Wa at all cost, huh? This favor is really not small!"
"Empress Wa? She truly is Empress Wa?" the congregation of sun-patterned black-robed men suddenly burst into shouts of joy.
"Even if we have found her, however, that man’s way of saving Empress Wa at all cost has made it difficult for me to handle!" Great Wisdom King stated calmly.
"Ah? So, how had Your Highness originally planned to handle him?" a sun-patterned black-robed man asked, puzzled.
"Kill him!" stated Great Wisdom King coldly.
In the sky...
Little Rou gradually woke up after having fed three Golden Saturn Peaches.
Not too far away, Chen Tianshan was so perplexed that he wanted to die. At this moment, his face was covered with a dejected look.
Chen Tianshan slapped his own face.
"Senior Chen, what are you doing?" Gao Xianzhi looked at Chen Tianshan, confused.
"Gao Xianzhi, what do you think transpired at the Carefree Valley. Little Rou should have been guarding Your Grace when he was training in seclusion, and she was injured, right?" Chen Tianshan stared at Gao Xianzhi, his eyes bloodshot.
"Indeed, the fire is still raging in the Carefree Valley, your guess is as good as mine. Little Rou should have been injured while protecting Throne Master in seclusion training!" nodded Gao Xianzhi.
"SLAP!" Chen Tianshan once again slapped his own face.
Gao Xianzhi, "...!"
"Tell me, how can I be so stupid! Three Hundred Years Longevity Peaches, ahh! Three, ahh! We have been wreaking havoc for so long, and almost fell to our deaths, yet Little Rou, she has obtained three Hundred Years Longevity Peaches by just protecting Throne Master for a while!? Why is it so unfair? Why was I so obsessed to rob at that time? Why was I so obsessed?"
Chen Tianshan slapped himself yet again.
Gao Xianzhi, "...!"
"If I was not so anxious to pillage the Hundred Years Longevity peach, and guarded Throne Master, would I also not be eating a Hundred Years Longevity Peach now?"
Yet another slap.
Gao Xianzhi, "...!"
"Benefactor, I...I'm fine, thank you, Benefactor! Boo-hoo, Hundred Years Longevity Peaches? Benefactor, Little Rou's life doesn't deserve to be saved by Benefactor!" Little Rou was so moved that she was sobbing.
"Whether it is worth it or not, I have the final say. You had saved me, can't I save you? Can I, Gu Hai not even bear to spend three peaches!?" said Gu Hai, smiling.
"Thank you, Benefactor!" Little Rou nibbled her lips, her eyes flickering with gratitude.
Turning her head and looking around, she could still guess how big of a grace had given by the Benefactor from looking at the jealous eyes of cultivators around. I am just an insignificant demon servant who looks after an herb field, and Benefactor was actually so good to me.
Little Rou momentarily choked up in emotions. She didn't know what to say.
Gu Hai lightly placed Little Rou on the head of cloud beast general and then carefully looked at the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree.
"Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, huh?" Gu Hai narrowed his eyes.
This is a precious treasure of Weiqi Empyrean Court! A treasure that can move the entire world. And now it is mine? No, why is the Weiqi Empyrean Court not reacting?
Gu Hai lowered his head and looked around.
"Gu Hai, the Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree is my Weiqi Empyrean Court treasure, if you dare to take one more step, you can forget ever leaving this world!" Ninth Young Master warned from far away coldly, staring at him.
Gu Hai lowered his head to look and narrowed his eyes, looking at Ninth Young Master's outwardly strong and inwardly weak appearance.
"It seems, Weiqi Empyrean Court still care about this Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree? Very good then!" A sliver of a cold smile crept upon on Gu Hai's lips.
Lowering his head, Gu Hai looked at Ninth Young Master and then looked around the world.
There were just too many things on the ground to look at from so high in the sky. Gu Hai could not tell where the headquarters of Weiqi Empyrean Court was. However, it did not matter.
Stretching his hand and caressing the branches of Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, Gu Hai suddenly said coldly, "Weiqi Empyrean Court disciples, listen up!"
As Gu Hai opened his mouth, the cloud beast underneath him also followed suit.
"Weiqi Empyrean Court disciples, listen up!"
The cloud beast general's shout shook the sky, spreading to every corner of the world, making everyone look at Gu Hai.
"I, Gu Hai, give the Weiqi Empyrean Court ten days from now. If I don't see 'Wei Shengren' after ten days, I will uproot this Hundred Years Longevity Peach Tree, cut it into pieces and burn them!"
The cloud beast general's shout spread across every corner of this world.
"What?" Ninth Young Master suddenly cried out in shock.
Meng Tai's eyes also went wide, "Gu Hai, are you crazy?"
"Your Grace, that's a longevity tree, a longevity tree!" Chen Tianshan also cried in shock.
The entire world burst into exclamation. Is this Gu Hai crazy? There are not many longevity herbs in the entire world, yet he wants to destroy one? He will uproot it, cut it into pieces and burn them? Are you kidding me?
