The stalemate between the Galloping Horse City and the bandits caused the higher ups of the Four Main Cities tobecome flustered and exasperated, but they were helpless to do anything.
The bandits were naturally very satisfied with the situation, they were not betraying the deal with the Four MainCities, and could prevent their own strength from diminishing too much, and if they delayed sufficiently, they couldtake the money and leave. Whether or not the Four Main Cities would regret was something that they did not care,as the Four Main Cities had gathered almost 90% of the bandits in Sin Domain just for this. Even if it was the FourMain Cities, they had to consider the consequences of offending everyone.
But not all of the bandits were satisfied, for example Zhong Li Bai, he was not satisfied at all.
Do not be mistaken by Zhong Li Bai’s achievements, in the bandit world, he was still an amature, and compared withthe old and veteran bandits, he was extremely ordinary looking. And along with his terrible personal strength, manypeople looked down on him. In their eyes, he was a bandit not worth interacting with.
Previously, everyone thought that the Galloping Horse City was a cash cow, and strived to be first and feared to belast, preventing Zhong Li Bai to find an opportunity. And after both parties came to a tacit understanding, thebandits were shocked to realize that it was an absolutely good opportunity to learn, giving Zhong Li Bai even lessspace to find an opportunity.
Compared to the bandits, Zhong Li Bai’s understanding of armies was much more profound.
The bandits’ happy improvements were nothing to him, but what truly concerned him was the Null Division’simprovements. Personally watching the Null Division grow from an unripe army to an adept force, seeing how theNull Division was quickly growing in Nie Qiu’s hands, he felt extremely terrible.
Nie Qiu was his most direct rival, the both of them came from extremely similar backgrounds. The Null Division wasalready slowly forming up, but&nbs
p;he had not accomplished anything.
There was nothing that could make him feel as terrible as that.
When Zhong Li Bai saw Sima Xiao, his face turned extremely dark: “This is your plan?”
The last time, the person who came to talk business with him was Sima Xiao. Initially, it was planned out well, ZhongLi Bai was to mix with the bandits, and was to serve as an insider as a bandit, but who knew that he would fall intosuch an awkward situation.
Sima Xiao waved his hands nonchalantly: “Who would have expected that Du Ke would be interested in Armies?Half of the authority of the Four Main Cities lies with Du Ke, if he doesn’t say anything, how can these people stirthe stormy sea? They can only make make more noise.”
Speaking about it, Sima Xiao also turned moody.
He and Sima Xiang Shan had landed themselves in a good position with much difficulty, but were also awarded withheavy responsibility. Especially the mission to purchase the bandits to deal with Ghost Face Mask was on Sima Xiao,the two of them thought that their opportunity had come.
The initial part of the plan flowed extremely smoothly, but out of their expectations, Du Ke actually did not initiate to move out on Ghost Face Mask himself. The higher ups of the Four Main Cities were divided, which was a surprise. They had underestimated Nie Qiu’s progress on consolidating the Null Division, and the four List of Powerhouses martial artists actually failed to siege the Galloping Horse City, scaring away the bandits for a period of time.
The bandits had initially bragged about slaughtering their way into Galloping Horse City as quickly as possible, butin the end they worked extremely carefully, all of them became extremely idle.
The original plan had become completely different.
“Then I have to waste my time here?” Zhong Li Bai snorted.
“Don’t do anything temporarily.” Sima Xiao thought for a moment and replied: “Du Ke has already began building hisarmy, and with his arrogance, how can he tolerate his own army being weaker than other people? He will definitelysend his own army to defeat the Null Division. Regardless of what plans he have at that time, when he prevails overNull Division, the Four Main Cities will definitely take action. You are a black horse piece, and can only unleash yourmaximum capabilities at that time.”
Zhong Li Bai was dejected, but he did not say anything.
In truth, aside from staying at where he was, he had nowhere to go. At such a time, it was not up to him to retreat ornot, there were too many bandits converged together, if he wanted to separate and leave them, it would probablycause the other bandits to group up and attack him.
Bandits were all unlawful people.
He had countless men under him, but he did not have many experts, and due to their ill discipline, no matter howhard he trained them, he was still lagging far behind compared to the meticulous and disciplined Null DivisionMembers. His discipline was lacking, his strength was also lacking. The Null Division was able to be so rampant andconfident and repel so many bandits was because they had the strength to do so. Zhong Li Bai did not have thestrength, and naturally did not dare to do anything reckless amongst the bandits.
“Even Du Ke is making an army now, tell me, do you think others won’t do it?” Sima Xiao retracted his smile and said with a serious look: “This is our last battle in Sin Domain, if we win, then we can fight out way back to the Sacred Saint Galaxy, and no one in the Sin Domain will be our opponent. But if we fail, then we will just die without a burial. No matter how strong the Null Division is, how can they contend against the entire Sin Domain, furthermore a Sin Domain that is developing armies?”
Zhong Li Bai’s face turned serious as well, Sima Xiao’s words were not spoken just to scare him. If the Sin Domaintruly found the way to build an army, then their only advantage would be lost, the powerhouses would gathertogether, and this force was not something the Null Division could handle alone.
~Seems like I have to train harder.~
Zhong Li Bai decided in his mind firmly, luckily for him, the various bandits were finding ways to imitate the NullDIvision, so training as an army was no longer a special thing.
When Ji Ze took back his Bewitching Blade, he was stunned.
The dark red blade body was like the glow of a setting sun, its bewitching aura was gone, it was calm and warm,without any cold intent.
~This sensation…. Is not right!~
~How can this Bewitching Blade be fit with its name? It is not bewitching at all!~
When Tang Tian saw Ji Ze’s suspicious expression, he scoffed, but he did not say anything, as he felt that it would bebetter for Ji Ze to probe out the blade himself. Tang Tian gained plenty from the refining of the Bewitching Blade, farmore than that of the Chief Green Swords.
Everyone had already gathered around.
“Master Ji Ze, test your blade out!”
“Yes yes, let us witness it!”
“Truly exciting to see what will come.”
Ji Ze’s mood was feeling nervous, the Bewitching Blade was a top grade treasure, it would not be easy to find areplacement if it was broken. He grabbed onto Bewitching Blade’s hilt, and swung it twice to test it out, and felt thatits weight seemed to have lessened, but it was extremely apt for him. When he imbued power into BewitchingBlade, he was instantly stunned, his eyes revealed a look of disbelief: “This is….”
A dazzling blood red light dot lit up on the blade edge without warning.
The blood red light dot quickly grew like an expanding balloon, expanding quickly.
The swelled up dark red light aura swept past everybody’s body, transforming into a blood red screen, envelopingeveryone within. Everyone immediately felt as though they were in blood, their vision was blood red, and the denseand bewitching blood smell pervaded every corner. In the blood screen, a faint but strange power was faintlydiscernible, but when they tried to detect it, it would become untraceable.
Everyone was stunned by the scene, and all around Ji Ze, the silence was so loud that they would be able to hear aneedle drop.
Someone shouted out with a trembling voice. Everyone who had their own guesses to what the new power would beimmediately turned pale with fright. It was Law Domain, the legendary Law Domain, that only Du Ke alone in thepresent generation had obtained.
Law Domain, seemingly the highest level of Law Power, absolute power that could devastate the Heavens andEarth.
All of the members were not weak, albeit not famous experts. To them, the Law Domain was an unreachable legend.They stared at the blood screen in shock, their minds blank.
“This is not a Law Domain, or more accurately, it is not a True Law Domain.”
Tang Tian’s voice broke the silence, but for some reason, everyone heaved a sigh of relief, the indescribable feardisappeared, they gradually regained their senses, and their pale white faces had a tinge of blood once more.
~If such a treasure is able to unleash a Law Domain, how terrifying is that~
No one could imagine that.
Even Ji Ze was unable to imagine such a concept, he heaved a sigh of relief, but his mind had a faint disappointment.~Law Domain, the power that everyone desires to have.~ But he quickly organized his emotions, his willpower wasfar firmer than ordinary martial artists, and he quickly woke up from his sense of loss.
~If my weapon’s power surpasses myself, then I will only become its slave.~
~Every treasure is like a fierce beast, if I do not have sufficient strength to subdue it, I will only be destroyed by it.~
~Wait a minute….it is not a true Law Domain!~
Ji Ze suddenly realized the unspoken words that Master Ghost Face Mask had said.
“This is imitating a Law Domain, or more accurately, you can call it an Incomplete Domain. This blood screen isformed from Blood Laws. All of us know that the realm of laws are differentiated by Law Threads, Law Surface andLaw Domain. But how do they evolve? While studying the Bewitching Blade, I realized a few peculiar things. LawSurfaces are in truth formed from Law Threads, so how did one thin rope become a flat surface? By weaving!Everyone has seen grass woven mats before right. How do threads become a defined space? By becoming a grassbasket. This Bewitching Blade uses this concept, and imitates out a similar space.”
Tang Tian said with pleasure, but his face was covered by the Ghost Face Mask, so the members could not see hishappy smile.
Instead, through the mask, his voice had become a notch lower.
Everyone’s eyes turned round, the majority of them barely understood him, but those who were slightly moreintelligent revealed looks of consideration. But all of them were like obedient students listening to him earnestly,without concealing their emotions of revere.
Even the high and mighty Ji Ze had an expression of shock.
~Are you joking, even if this is not a true Law Domain, but after studying it for a while, you have already graspedwhat a Law Domain is, what does that mean? It means you, my Master, your understanding on Laws is already at thepeak!~
Holding onto the Bewitching Blade, the blood screen in front of him was a completely different scene.
Every member in his eyes was like a regiment of blood, he could clearly feel their veins throbbing, could see theirblood flowing, even the minute and fine veins were clearly caught by him. In his eyes, there were no secrets hidden,he could dare confirm that as long as he wanted it, he could cause their blood to flow in reverse.
~Is this what a Law Domain is?~
Everything was in his control, the indescribable intoxicating feeling surfaced in his heart.
But when he looked at Master Ghost Face Mask, he was suddenly stunned.
