Chapter 613 – Secret
When Zhao Hai heard the Queen, he couldn't help but show a smile as he said, "Your Majesty, since you know about my Buda Clan, they you should also know about my ability. I might not have good cultivation, but my Dark Magic, especially undead magic, is unparalleled. If I say I'm second, nobody would dare claim that they are first."
The Queen stared at Zhao Hai, then after thinking for a moment, she said, "So mister wants to help us using your Undead?"
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, "It depends on what troubles you have encountered."
The Queen looked at Zhao Hai, and the after some time, she let out a long sigh and said, "Patriarch Zhao Hai's undead summoning is indeed very famous in the continent. This Queen wouldn't hide anything from mister, this time, we had really met some trouble. Someone wanted to challenge the throne."
This answer was within Zhao Hai's expectations. The Mermaid Race was the ruling clan of the Fishmen. If there wasn't a revolt, they wouldn't have established ties with the Rock Shrimp tribe. After all, the Rock Shrimp tribe was just too unqualified.
Zhao Hai looked at the Queen and said, "Since Your Majesty wanted to form an alliance with us, they we are now allies. If an ally is in trouble, then it would be impossible for me to just stand by. I ask Your Majesty to tell us the problem, this Zhao Hai would do his best to help."
The Queen looked at Zhao Hai and somehow felt that he can be trusted. So she gave a sigh and said, "I'm afraid mister would laugh at us. Although we rule the sea, the waters are just too big. Our Mermaid Clan simply cannot manage every single place. Moreover, since our management is quite loose, many people held us in high regard. But we had recently discovered that some Fishmen tribes were having trouble. It was clear that something must have happened. So we sent some people to investigate and found out that a strong subordinate of ours, the Sea Dragon tribe, has been collecting massive amounts of tax under our name. However, these taxes weren't handed over to us, but instead, they hoarded it for themselves and used it to pull other tribes over to their side. At the time of us finding out, those tribes had already established an alliance and had blatantly announced their revolt. Now, we had lost control of the east side of the seas. Moreover, the Sea Dragon Tribe has also amassed an army and are now inching towards us. Because our Mermaid Race has not fought for some time, our response had been slow. Now, we have our backs behind the wall."
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "Then I would have to disturb Your Majesty for a few days. In those few days, I will use the time to manufacture a batch of high level undead marine beasts and make them into an army. When the time comes, I believe they would be able to help Your Majesty. What do you think?"
The Queen gawked at what Zhao Hai said, then her face expressed her glee as she said, "Then I would trouble mister Zhao Hai. Lola, arrange a room for mister Zhao Hai to rest in."
Lola stepped forward and gave the Queen a bow, then she turned her head to Zhao Hai and said, "Mister, come with me." Zhao Hai then gave the Queen a bow before leaving with Lola.
When Zhao Hai left the Great Hall, a Mermaid entered the Great Hall from a small entrance at the side. The Mermaid then told the Queen, "Your Majesty, from what we've heard from mister Zhao Hai, it seems like the attack of the Sea Dragons are also related to the Divine Race."
The Queen nodded and said, "In our clan's records, the Dragon Race were the most faithful dogs of the Divine Race. The Sea Dragons are a branch family of the Dragons. Their sudden move this time might have some reason. Luo Luo, you go look at the records and see what the Sea Dragons did during the previous war against the Divine Race. I'm afraid I can't remember if there are any records of it in the clan."
The Mermaid Luo Luo complied, then she looked at the Queen and said, "Your Majesty, do you think mister Zhao Hai's plan is feasible? Can the undead really deal with those Sea Dragons?"
The Queen smiled faintly and said, "The Buda Clan's Patriarch is very mysterious. There are numerous people in the continent that went to investigate him only to find out nothing. But some people suspect that he has some sort of Space Divergent Ability. Moreover, all of his undead are very high levelled, their individual fighting strength is not weak. If we have his help, then we may reduce our casualties. You transmit my orders to get the Whales to catch a lot magic beasts and bring them over. We don’t know how many undead mister Zhao Hai might make. But I'm sure that when the war comes, those Sea Dragons would surely be in on a surprise."
Luo Luo nodded, then she turned around to leave. Inside the Great Hall, the Queen gave a sigh before she muttered, "The Divine Race is finally returning? Hehe, that's good. I've also waited to take revenge. Clowns of the Sea Dragon Race, do you really think that you can dethrone us? Keep dreaming."
Zhao Hai and the others were lead by Lola to a side hall. This hall wasn't very big, but it still had the beautiful aesthetics of the palace. The hall was divided into four regions. Upon entering, one would first enter the lobby, it was a living room that was floored with blue stone. Moreover, the stones underwent careful polishing, one could see reflections when one walks on them.
The second room was the dining room, inside were stone furniture This room had wooden tables and chairs in them. These tables and chairs were all made out of the finest wood. They didn't use a single coating of paint, revealing the natural wood grains. It looked very simple and natural.
The third were the bed spaces, inside were a total of four rooms and a living room. The fourth part of the hall was the bathroom. The floor of the bathroom was made out out blue shells. In the middle of the bathroom was a large pool. There were several fish head sculptures on the edges of the pool with water spraying out of it. There was also a water outlet under the pool in order to stabilize its height. The water was crystal clear and wasn't cold at all. Instead it felt warm and was very nice to take a bath in.
Lola asked Zhao Hai and the others to the living room and briefed them about the palace before she took her leave. She also told Zhao Hai that if he needs something, he can just pull on the rope inside the bedroom. The rope was linked to a metal bell, when the rope is pulled, the bell would then issue a ring which would alert nearby people.
After Lola left, Zhao Hai and the others went to the small living area in their bedroom. Then, Zhao Hai opened his monitor. Cai'er already recorded the conversation between Luo Luo and the Queen.
After Zhao Hai and the others listened to the video, the group became silent. After some time, Laura turned her head to Zhao Hai and said, "Brother Hai, looking at the Queen's expression, is she confident?"
Zhao Hai nodded, then after sighing he said, "She certainly is. The mermaids have been ruling the fishmen for a long time. So how could they possibly not have their trump cards. If they didn't have any methods, then they would've already fallen to a revolt long time ago. And seeing from the Queen's expression, it seems like she is reluctant to use their trump card. Otherwise, she wouldn't need out help."
Laura nodded, then Lizzy frowned and said, "Do we really need to help the Queen? They have ways to deal with these people. Aren't we being used like tools this time?"
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, "That doesn't matter. In any case, if we help them deal with the Sea Dragons, our relationship would get much closer. This is good for our future plans. I just didn't think that the Dragons would be on the side of the Divine Realm. It seems like the Radiant Church was the Divine Race's chess piece in the light while the Dragons are their piece in the shadows."
Megan looked like she had a heavy heart, "Big Brother Hai, Dragons haven't appeared on the continent for many years. It seems like they have been living in the Accra mountains. If the Dragons were indeed on the side of the Divine Race, then its likely that they have been controlling the magic beasts of the mountain. No wonder the Accra mountains had become one of the Five Forbidden Areas. The Dragons controlling the magic beasts for the Divine Race must be kept secret from the others. So they naturally would kill people who ventured deep into the Accra Mountain."
The smile on Zhao Hai's face disappeared, then he nodded and said, "That's very possible. If there is really a Divine Race's force in the Accra Mountains, then the Demonic Abyss would definitely be a den for the Demons. People already had some suspicions that the Demonic Abyss is related to the Demon Race, but nobody had any proof of it. I think the Demons used this deliberately in order to focus everyone's attention to the Demonic Abyss while the Engraved Ark continues to accumulate power. The methods of the Demons and the Divine Race were actually similar, but are reversed.
Laura became serious as she said, "It seems like the Demons and the Divine Realm still hasn't lost heart for the Ark Continent. Brother Hai, we're quite lucky that we haven't gone to the Accra Mountains yet and found out about the relationship between the Dragons and the Divine Race. If we went there and found out, then the Divine Race would surely be alerted that their secret was revealed. It might spur them into action."
Zhao Hai nodded, "Fortunately, we went to the Fishman Race first. Otherwise, we would've gone to Accra Mountains since the Elves were still unprepared. I'm planning on getting some magic beasts and plants to upgrade the Space. I've also been thinking of subduing the Dragons, after all, their fighting strength were incredibly known to the continent."
Megan knit her brows as she said, "It's really strange that nobody knew about the relationship between the Dragons and the Divine Race. It seems like this was also because of the Radiant Church's machinations."
Zhao Hai coldly snorted and said, "It seems so. The Radiant Church had probably obtained the Divine Race's decree earlier than we have imagined. "The Divine race is good, they were actually very patient."
Chapter 614 – Arrogant? I Have Strength!
Although they were in a hostile relationship, Zhao Hai couldn't help but admire the Divine Race. For them to hide everything for such a long time was a testament to how patient they were.
However, this also made Zhao Hai pay much more attention to them. The Divine Race can completely turn the entire Ark Continent over along with the Radiant Church. Such a race was notable, and Zhao Hai couldn't help but refrain from being careless.
Laura coldly snorted and said, "Brother Hai, then what do we do? When we extinguish the Sea Dragons, then would we be looking for trouble with the Dragons in Accra Mountains?" She was afraid that the continent would find out that Zhao Hai had the guts to offend the Dragons. In the continent, Dragons were the symbols of invincibility. Nobody dared to go and purposefully offend them.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, "Don't worry. First, we deal with the Sea Dragons, and then we go to Flame Island and see what's going on there. Maybe we can get some benefits along the way. After that, we'll go deal with the dragons. But since there are quite strong, we need to get ready. Right Laura, you and the others are now 9th rank experts. But you don't have your own mounts. Maybe we can get you some dragons to ride in Accra Mountains."
Laura snorted, "I don't want them. What do those stupid dragons do that a 9th rank Blood Hawk can't? I'd rather use the Blood Hawks as a mount."
Zhao Hai and the others laughed. If other people in the continent were to hear Laura, hey would certainly laugh. She actually denied the chance to have a dragon as a mount. That's an absurd idea.
After some time, the group gradually calmed down. Then Megan turned her head towards Zhao Hai and said, "Big Brother Hai, will you start making undead tomorrow? Your undeads are now 9th rank, what form do you want them to look like?"
Zhao Hai nodded, "This is truly tricky to deal with. We can just let those undead retain their forms when they fight, but we'll have them deliberately get injured or play dead. Naturally, those are just make believe. Once they reach a certain amount of damage, we can receive them into the Space. We can use this method as a cover up. Also, the Queen was also aware of the strength of my undead, so she wouldn't suspect too much upon seeing them fight."
Lizzy nodded and said, "From what I can hear from the Queen, she seems to be sincere in her move to ally with us. In this case, it would be more advantageous for her if Brother Hai is stronger than she expected. I think she wouldn't just betray you."
Zhao Hai smiled and said, "in fact, there's really no need to be careful about the Fishmen. Although they had the Sea God's Merchant Union and can contact with the continent, they have always been mysterious and can only be rarely be spotted. Their contact with the other powers can only be said to be miniscule. So I believe that they won't say anything. The other Fishman tribes are also less likely to talk, after all, they don't get in contact with the humans. Because of that I believe that what we do here won't be revealed to the Humans back in the continent."
Lizzy shook her head and said, "But we still need to be careful. Even if the Fishmen wouldn't talk, what about the Sea Dragons? They might use the other Dragons to expose us."
Laura also nodded and said, "Brother Hai, we do need to be much more careful." Zhao Hai nodded and didn't say anything more. Laura and the others didn't say anything as well as they went back to the Space and started to prepare.
Although the Queen didn't invite Zhao Hai over for a meal, she still had people send him a beautiful array of dishes. The variety seafoods present were more than what Zhao Hai had eaten before. This made Zhao Hai and the others satisfied with their meal.
The next morning, after Zhao Hai and the others ate the Breakfast that Lola had given them, Lola gave them word that the Queen was inviting them over. Then Zhao Hai and the others went with Lola to the Great Hall in order to meet with the Queen.
The Queen was sat in the same position as when Zhao Hai had met her yesterday. Upon seeing Zhao Hai, the Queen couldn't help but smile faintly and said, "Mister, come and take a seat." Zhao Hai then noticed that there were several chairs in the Great Hall today. It seems like these were specially prepared for them.
After Zhao Hai and the others expressed their gratitude and sat on the chairs, the Queen said, "How many undead can mister summon? How many beasts do we need to acquire?"
Zhao Hai smiled and said, "As many beasts as you can find, the more the better. Right, Your Majesty, how many people had followed the Sea Dragons' rebellion? How much people do they have?"
The Queen forced a smile and said, "There are a lot of tribes that decided to join the Sea Dragons, I don't know how many they are. But there were a lot of small races that were absorbed into their army. I'm afraid that the current army of the Sea Dragons numbers at about more than ten million."
Although he knew that the seas was big and there were a lot of beings in here, Zhao Hai still couldn't help but breath some cold air upon hearing the number of the opposite party. Now he understood why the Sea Dragons decided to act against the Mermaids. If the Mermaids were dealt with, the Sea Dragons would have full hegemony of the seas. When the time comes, they can amass their army and coordinate with the Radiant Church. At that time, it wouldn't be impossible to conquer the entire continent.
Moreover, the Fishmen also had an advantage. Although they can't stay on land for too long, one shouldn't forget that they can just retreat to the seas whenever they get defeated. The sea is their domain and no army of the continent was able to contend with them there. That would be equivalent to the Fishmen having bases right beside Human territories.
If this was really the case, then the Divine Race can definitely depend on them and fight a battle of attrition with the major races in the continent. At that time, even if they don't send a God-ranked expert and just sent down an army of 9th ranks, they can still defeat the races of the continent. After all, the population of the continent was greatly fewer than the people of the sea. Moreover, they still had the Dragons in Accra Mountains as well as the Radiant Church.
Thinking about this made Zhao Hai coldly sweat. If he didn't come to see the Fishmen at this time, then he would really be in trouble. It was good that he came just in time to deal with the Sea Dragons, solving the issue with the Fishmen.
The Queen saw that Zhao Hai's face turned ugly and didn't speak for quite a while. She thought that he was frightened by the army so she quickly said, "Mister doesn't need to worry about our ability to resist them. We were just caught off guard this time, so we couldn't respond appropriately. Mister can just summon as many as you can, that's already enough of of a help."
When Zhao Hai heard that the Queen seemed to misunderstand him, he immediately smiled faintly and said, "Your Majesty misunderstands, I can summon as much undead as the number of copses that you can provide. I can only ask Your Majesty to grab as much corpses as possible, it would be great to get corpses from the enemies."
The Queen nodded, "Alright, the mister doesn't need to worry about the magic beasts. I already had my people prepare them. I just want to know how much mister can take."
Zhao Hai knew what the Queen meant. After all, her clan had a lot of contact with the Humans, so it was natural that she was aware about Dark Mages. She knew that Dark Mages have their limit. If the Fishmen were to provide more than what Zhao Hai can summon, then he would be losing face.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, "Your majesty doesn't need to worry. Make them get as many as possible, the more the better. If Your Majesty can prepare 10 million magic ebasts, then Your Majesty would acquire a 10 million undead army. This one will have to excuse myself to rest. Once the corpses are ready, Your Majesty can just send some people over to get me." Then he gave a bow before he left along with Laura and the others.
When Zhao Hai left, Luo Luo arrived at the Great Hall, completely fuming, "Your Majesty, this Zhao Hai is extremely arrogant. Your Majesty is only thinking about his well being, but instead he was being impolite."
The Queen smiled faintly and then shook her head, "Silly thing, he's not being extremely arrogant. He is just very strong. You might not know but he has a very terrifying reputation among the Humans. In just one night, he had turned an entire several hundred thousand Aksu Empire navy into his undead. If he can really turn 10 million corpses into undead, then that would be good for us. Go give the orders to get as much magic beasts as possible. As long as they are wild, then get them. Right, go bring corpses of Sea Dragons and their allies as well. I want to see what an undead Sea Dragon looks like." While she spoke this, a killing aura appeared around the Queen.
The Mermaid Queen was very angry. The Mermaid Race had ruled the seas for many years, but they hadn't encountered a rebellion of this scale. The Sea Dragons actually made the Mermaids lose control of the eastern seas. For the Mermaid Race, this was not a small attack.
The fighting strength of the eastern sea was much stronger than the west. This was because in the eastern waters, aside from the Sea Dragons, there were also the Sharks, Electric Eels, and various poisonous races. These collection of people were very strong. It was because of this that when the Sea Dragon announced their rebellion, the Mermaid Race was caught off guard.
However, the Mermaids weren't people who could be trifled with as well. Not only do they have the loyal Whale tribe and Swordfish tribe, their own fighting strength was formidable as well. The Queen believed that as long as they have time, they would be able to amass an army that can extinguish the Sea Dragons in one swoop.
Luo Luo looked at the Queen and didn't talk about Zhao Hai anymore. She then looked at the Queen and said, "Your Majesty, I also checked the records about the Sea Dragons yesterday and found out that the Sea Dragons didn't exist during the fight with the Divine Race."
When the Queen heard Luo Luo, she couldn't help but reply, "There are no Sea Dragons? What does that mean?"
Luo Luo replied, "Your Majesty, during the major war against the Divine Race where our Mermaid Race had participated, the Dragons were there as well, but they were on the side of the Divine Race. When the God was defeated, the Dragons didn't have anywhere else to go but retreat to the Accra Mountains. However, part of them decided to ran to the sea and requested refuge from us. The Sea King pitied them and allowed them to thrive here. Afterwards, those Dragons married some Fishmen and eventually spawned the Sea Dragon Race."
Chapter 615 – Curious Fishman Race
When the Queen heard Luo Luo, her expression couldn't help but change, "So you're saying that only after the war did the Sea Dragons came to existence? Did the Divine Race intended that in order to deal with us?"
Luo Luo shook her head and said, "You really can't say that, after all, that was a long time ago. My speculations is that the Divine Race only got contact with the Sea Dragons recently, which prompted them to deal with us. Otherwise, they wouldn't have waited for tens of thousands of years in order to revolt."
The Queen nodded, "It would be impossible for the Sea Dragons to hold off on attacking us. However, we can still affirm that the Sea Dragons are a bunch of ungrateful bastards!"
Luo Luo also held anger in her expression. When she checked the records, she couldn't help but get irritated the more she read on. These Sea Dragons were too shameless. The Mermaids had given them shelter but they still ended up rebelling.
Then the Queen coldly snorted and said, "Sea Dragon race, you just wait. Luo Luo, make sure that everything mister Zhao Hai needs gets fulfilled. Maybe he can change the flow of this war."
Luo Luo nodded before turning around to leave. The Queen coldly snorted and then mumbled, "Sea Dragon Race, good, good. You actually think that you can rule the entire Ark Continent?"
When Zhao Hai and the others returned to their room, Laura looked at Zhao Hai in confusion and said, "Brother Hai, what just happened? Why did you suddenly became arrogant?"
Zhao Hai smiled and said, "In any business, expressing your power is the one of the most important things. Don't forget that we had formed an alliance with the Mermaid clan. And since we are now allies, we need to see ourselves as equals. If we show our weakness, then they would lose confidence in us." Then Zhao Hai opened the monitor and played the video of Luo Luo and the Queen's meeting.
After listening to the Queen and Luo Luo, the face of Zhao Hai and the others couldn't help but turn ugly. They didn't think that the Sea Dragons would actually have such a history with the Fishmen. If they were indeed a chess piece of the Divine Race, then the Divine Race was too terrifying.
Laura looked at the monitor before turning to Zhao Hai, "Brother Hai, do you think that the Sea Dragons were intentionally placed there by the Divine Race?"
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, "I don't think so. If they were, then they wouldn't have waited for so long. Then when the Radiant Church was its most formidable, they would've already cooperated and conquered the entire continent."
Laura and the others nodded, then Zhao Hai sighed and said, "But no matter what, we must deal with the Sea Dragons. When the time comes, we can just interrogate the Sea Dragons, then we can uncover the truth."
Laura and the others nodded again. Then Zhao Hai change the scene of the monitor, showing the preparations of the Fishmen.
At this time, the places nearby the small island had become very busy. People of the Whale tribe and the Swordfish tribe have been sent out to grab all of the wild magic beasts on the surrounding waters. Moreover, the Queen had also sent another command making all of the other Fishmen to go full scale in their capture of beasts and had all of them sent to the island.
Zhao Hai was very calm when he saw the strength of the Fishmen. In just one day, they had actually managed to have 100 thousand beasts sent to the island.
For them to only take one day to collect 100 thousand beasts and had them sent to the island was terrifying. There were already a lot of magic beasts that were captured. However, Zhao Hai didn't appear, the Queen didn’t send word to him either.
The next morning, after having their breakfast, Lola arrived and invited Zhao Hao over to the Great Hall. Besides the Queen, Luo Luo was present as well. But Luo Luo looked just like an ordinary servant right now, with her head lowered in obedience. Besides Luo Luo, there were also a Turtle Fishman and Whale Fishman present.
Zhao Hai felt strange, how could this Whale Fishman able to appear in the Great Hall. With their bodies, it was impossible for them to go up using the stone pillars. They may have other ways to come in. Zhao Hao decided to ask Cai'er about this later.
Upon seeing Zhao Hai arrive, the Queen nodded and said, "Mister Zhao Hai, come. Let me introduce you to the captain of the island guards, the Whale Fishman Dashan and the guard commander, the Turtle Fishman Jintai."
Zhao Hai looked at these two and identified them. The Whale was the one who escorted him to the island while the Turtle was the one who brought them up to the palace.
Zhao Hai bowed to the two and then said, "Nice to meet you. This Zhao Hai thanks the two of you for delivering me here."
They also returned Zhao Hai's courtesy, but didn't dare to utter a word. Then they returned to stand by the Queen's side. The Queen then turned to Zhao Hai and said, "Mister, we've already collected 100 thousand magic beasts. Please have a look at them."
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "Alright, I'll be heading there now. Your Majesty, please allow this one to excuse himself first."
The Queen nodded as she waved her hand and said, "Then I'll have to trouble mister. Dashan, Jintai, make sure to take care of mister Zhao Hai's every single need." Then the two issued their agreement before giving the Queen a bow and then leaving the Hall along with Zhao Hai.
When they got out, the turtles were already prepared for them. Zhao Hai and the others then stepped on top of the turtles before they jumped down from the pool and then disappeared.
Zhao Hai didn't have time to pay attention to anything right now. When the turtles entered the mounds, Zhao Hai felt that he was riding on a roller coaster. And the speed was much much more than back on Earth.
This was the first time that Laura and the others had experience this, so they couldn't help but scream. But since they were already 9th rank experts, it only took them a while before they calmed down.
Back when they were heading up, Zhao Hai reckoned that they had taken about an hour. But now that they were going down, it only took them a few minutes to do so. In a blink of an eye, they were already on the sea's surface.
Zhao Hai turned his head to look at Laura and the others. He wanted to see if they were frightened. But when he saw their expressions, Zhao Hai felt relief. Although Laura and the others had been scared, their current expressions revealed their enjoyment.
Zhao Hai couldn't help but smile bitterly. He actually felt that women were strange beings, they were too full of contradictions. They liked delicious food, but they were also afraid to get fat. They think that roller coasters were scary, but only to end up enjoying the ride.
Zhao Hai shook his head as he forced a smile before he turned to Jintai and said, "Commander Jintai, please take me to see those magic beasts."
Jintai turned his head and smiled faintly, "I'll have to be unfair to mister Zhao Hai. I cannot stay in this place for too long because of my duties. However, Dashan will come here and lead you to the place."
Zhao Hai nodded, then he looked at Jintai and said, "Thank you commander. But Commander Jintai, how would be be able to enter and exit this place?"
Jintai smiled and said, "Mister doesn't need to worry. The Queen herself sent word that Mister and your wives are free to move in the Mermaid territory. Nobody will restrict your freedom."
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "Alright. Then I'll have to thank Her Majesty. My wives are very curious about this place. Even I am compelled to look around."
Jintai smiled, "Then Mister is very welcome here. The Mermaid domain is very beautiful. Moreover, the Royal tribe is very hospitable. I believe that they would quickly become friends with your wives." Then after he said this, a huge bulge suddenly appeared on the sea's surface. Then Dashan's mountainous figure suddenly appeared.
After Dashan appeared, he immediately gave Zhao Hai a bow and said, "Mister, please come with me. I'll go lead you to see the magic beasts."
Zhao Hai nodded, then he rode on Dashan's whale mount. When Laura and the others were about to board, Zhao Hai smiled to them and said, "You go play in the meantime. I won't be long."
When they heard Zhao Hai, the women couldn't help but stare before their eyes suddenly lit up. "Can we really play? Good, Fantastic!"
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and then turned to Jintai and said, "Commander Jintai I will have to trouble you, I will certainly come back soon."
Jintai smiled faintly and said, "Mister can rest assured" Then Zhao Hai gave Jintai a bow before he turned to Dashan and said, "Captain Dashan, let's go." Dashan nodded, then he commanded his mount to move towards an island.
Soon after Zhao Hai left the Mermaid island, he had arrived at a nearby island where a large number of Fishmen were present. These Fishmen had brought a lot of magic beasts. These beasts were all alive, some of them were wild while some were struggling.
When Zhao Hai saw this scene, he couldn't help but stare. He turned his head to Dashan and said, "Captain Dashan, dead beasts are fine. Even if they are alive, they would still end up dead in my hands. I need them to be dead before I can turn them to undead."
When Dashan heard Zhao Hai, he nodded and then said, "Alright, mister, please wait a bit." Then Dashan turned his head to the Fishmen and said, "Kill those magic beasts, and then you can leave."
The Fishmen gawked, but they still obeyed. They pulled out all kinds of weapons and killed all of the magic beasts that they've brought.
However, after killing these magic beasts, the Fishmen didn't leave. Every one of them looked curiously at Zhao Hai. Seeing their appearances, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. Then he changed his thinking and understood what was going on. These Fishmen might be aware of what he was about to do. They haven't seen a Dark Mage make undead before, therefore, they were curious to see what it looked like.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and didn't say anything. He looked at the 100 thousand magic beasts piled in front of him. Moreover, since some of these magic beasts were quite big, the pile looked just like a hill. Zhao Hai pulled out his Blood Ghost Staff before he muttered some fake incantations. Then he waved his staff as a black gas appeared and surrounded the pile of Magic Beasts. The Fishmen looked at the mass of black gas as it enveloped the pile of beasts.
Before long, the black gas had vanished. But what the Fishmen saw after was something that made them scream out in alarm!PETA would like to have a word.
