Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 303: Rogue Bull
For the next three days, Ye Chuan didn’t leave Heavenly Dragon Peak.
These three days, he was not only refining this Dark Underworld Ring, he practiced his life technique, Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Secrets, comprehending the mystery of heaven and earth.
The higher the cultivation base, the more he realized the power of this technique he obtained in God Burial Valley. Without the help of Old Demon of Mount Yin Rhodes, Six Winged Golden Cicada and other powerful yao beasts, the elimination of both Black Cauldron Sect and Five Style Sect wouldn’t have been this smooth. A single Heaven Swallowing Talisman gave him 18,000 jin strength and a new Heaven Swallowing Talisman was on the verge of condensing, this made Ye Chuan have a full expectation for his next breakthrough.
No one dared to disturb the seclusion cultivation of Ye Chuan. On the early morning of the fourth day, after Ye Chuan had opened his eyes, Zhu Sijia quickly walked over to report the situation of this period of time.
After annexing both Black Cauldron Sect and Five Style Sect, the strength of Cloud Mist Sect had increased vastly. Moreover, Cloud Mist Sect seized a large number of weapons, armors, crystal stones, pills and others things as the spoils of war, especially all kinds of crystal stones which were urgently needed by Cloud Mist Sect. Obtaining the additional crystal stones, now, Cloud Mist Sect didn’t need to worry about exhausting the energy source for Heaven Concealing Great Formation that enveloped the entire sect. Even if Da Qin Dynasty or Heavenly Yao Sect besieged them, they had enough crystal stones to use for a year or so.
Like crystal stones, the more weapons, armors, pills and other spoils of war the better, but one matter that was relatively a bit thorny was the management of numerous captives. After this war, they had roughly 7000 captives. Among them, a section of them were odd-job men and servants, and the remaining considerable section were disciples of both Black Cauldron Sect and Five Style Sect. In the matter of dealing with these people, Cloud Mist Sect was having endless trouble in these past few days. Killing all of them was also unsuitable as that was against the heavenly principles; releasing them was also unsuitable as the information of Cloud Mist Mountain Range would be easily leaked, moreover, if they gathered together to form a band and take to the greenwood after leaving Cloud Mist Sect, then they might cause trouble to Cloud Mist Sect in the future; and detaining all of them will also get nowhere, Cloud Mist Sect couldn’t support so many prisoners.
Zhu Sijia was unable to solve this problem so she came to Ye Chuan to ask for instructions.
“Big Senior Apprentice Brother, release or kill, we are waiting for your order. Da Qin Dynasty and Heavenly Yao Sect have not moved, but the later they come, their offense would be that more ferocious. We must resolve this thorny problem as soon as possible.” Zhu Sijia said. Originally, she agreed with killing all these captives to save troubles. But when all was said and done, this was not one or two people, rather full 7000 people, no matter how decisive she was, she also couldn’t do it.
“Is there no movement in Da Qin Dynasty?” Ye Chuan suddenly asked seemingly it was an irrelevant thing.
“No, moreover, there is no news of my grandfather after he left for the capital and Da Qin Dynasty also has no movement.” Zhu Sijia frowned. She missed her grandfather Zhu Guohong but there was no news of him. If Cloud Mist Sect wasn’t facing the danger of formidable enemies, then she might have already left to capital to look for her grandfather.
“This Da Qin King is truly keeping his composure. Or to say, he is only hissing to intimidate others and its fine to not hand over pills too, or to say, seeing the strength of our Cloud Mist Sect is rising now, he didn’t dare to raise his hand.”
Ye Chuan laughed to himself, after swallowing Black Cauldron Sect and Five Style Sect, the past Cloud Mist Sect already couldn’t be compared with the present. But it still had no way to compare with Da Qin Dynasty and Heavenly Yao Sect, this kind of giants. Clearly, Da Qin Dynasty either had its hand full dealing with some other matter for the moment or was brewing a powerful attack to wipe out Cloud Mist Mountain Range in own fell swoop.
Sometimes, the rainstorm itself was not that terrifying, the eve before the rainstorm was truly had to bear.
“Big Senior Apprentice Brother, what should we do now?” Zhu Sijia asked.
“It’s very simple, dispatch these captives to annex the cities and towns around Cloud Mist Mountain Range.” Ye Chuan replied.
“This……, isn’t this giving Da Qin Dynasty a pretext to attack? At that time, when army strikes……” Zhu Sijia looked at Ye Chuan with confusion.
“If Da Qin Dynasty wants to attack, even if there is no pretext, they can find one. Since Da Qin Dynasty hasn’t moved, we’ll simply feel out and provoke them. Perhaps, we can force them to hastily attack in advance before they prepared completely. Whatever one says, it is a grey world around Cloud Mist Mountain Range, it can offer as a buffer zone for our Cloud Mist Sect to avoid the surprise attack of Cloud Mist Sect.” Ye Chuan replied. He had already thought deeply and planned carefully.
Zhu Sijia was very surprised, but after calmly thinking for a while, this move of Ye Chuan was truly amazing.
“Big Senior Apprentice Brother, then how can we ensure that these captives will not be detrimental for us? How can we make them do their utmost to wipe out surrounding towns and cities?” Zhu Sijia thought deeply for a little while and quickly pointed out the critical point.
Ye Chuan looked at Zhu Sijia with praise and said, “That is also not difficult, encourage these people to go down the mountain and attack the lords occupying the surrounding lands and whoever is the best he would be the lord of that place. Moreover, reward them with top grade pills and cultivation techniques, and also help them grow stronger. Jiajia, rest assured, as long as they are released, their desire will grow bigger and bigger, and the bigger the power, the more they need our support. We don’t need to appear personally and also don’t need to especially do something, these people will scramble to work themselves to the bones for us. Naturally, what I am speaking is only a general direction. You can carefully discuss and plan with Flame Devil and others for the specific details, but move quickly.”
“Okay, I understand. Big Senior Apprentice Brother, all said that you are a terrifying evil spirit, and even a thousand-year-old fox is inferior to you, it seems, they are truly not wrong.”
Zhu Sijia received the order and turned away, but just when she was about to walk out of the door, she suddenly turned around and said, “In addition, according to the report of spies, Tuoba Xiong and Tuoba Xiaoniao boarded a small wooden boat going out to the sea. They want to go far away from Cloud Mist Sect looking for the land of immortals overseas. Hereafter, you will no longer be able to see Tuoba Xiaoniao, Big Senior Apprentice Brother, aren’t you very broken-hearted?”
“I am not broken-hearted, since junior apprentice-sister Jiajia is beside me, I am perfectly content. I am a bull and you are a field, in this lifetime, being able to live beside this 1 mu field, I am very satisfied. I can plow and weed throughout my life.” Ye Chuan replied with a bad smile.
“Hoodlum, no, Big Senior Apprentice Brother, you are Rogue Bull more barbarian than a barbarian bull.”
Zhu Sijia rolled her eyes and left. She looked angry on the surface but was feeling sweet in her heart for an unknown reason. Being able to live near me, this 1 Mu field throughout the life, pei, Ye Chuan, you truly know how to speak without caring whether she would feel shy or not.
After Zhu Sijia left, the smile on the face of Ye Chuan slowly disappeared. Now, he looked somewhat lonely as a weak and delicate figure emerged and lingered in his mind.
“Xiaoniao, is it better for you if you are farther away from me?”
Ye Chuan sighed.
If Tuoba Xiaoniao was still in Da Qin Dynasty, then it wouldn’t be hard to go look for her. But since she had gone overseas, there was only a tiny chance for them to reunite. According to the legend, at the end of the East Sea, there was the ancient island of the immortals. For millions of years, an unknown number of people had gone to look for this legendary island, but up until now, there was no one who had ever truly found it. Moreover, being floated to an isolated island of overseas, many of them had committed suicide unable to bear their loneliness.
“Eh, that sea demoness, perhaps……”
Thinking of the vast sea, Ye Chuan suddenly had a thought and he summoned Sea Demoness Hai Lili. If he was looking for someone around who knew the situation of overseas islands, then this sea demoness was a perfect choice.
