Chapter 869: I Can’t Afford to Use You!
He even wanted to slap w.a.n.g Baole to death. But obviously, he couldn’t. And he felt that… he might not be able to do so anyway.
He felt extremely depressed, and he was too lazy to fake a smile. He had his back turned towards his disciples as he gazed at w.a.n.g Baole while gritting his teeth.
“Even if I sell my sect, I won’t have more than 200 Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps. Don’t go overboard Long Nanzi!”
“I bled for your Violet Gold New Dao Sect and came here fearlessly. I came here to provide aid without caring about the potential consequences, and you say I’m going overboard? You want to repudiate your debt?” After hearing the patriarch’s words, w.a.n.g Baole instantly became unhappy and stared. w.a.n.g Baole wasn’t very confident that he would be able to retreat successfully if he fought the Sovereign Patriarch. But for a mere Violet Gold New Dao Sect patriarch, he felt that he could still bully him.
w.a.n.g Baole grew even more enraged in his heart as he spoke loudly.
“Is this the Violet Gold New Dao Sect? After learning that the Violet Gold New Dao Sect was in danger, I, Long Nanzi, a mere Spirit Immortal, asked the Sovereign Patriarch to allow me to come here on my own accord. Even though the journey was long and I knew that there would be Planet realm mighty figures here. Even though your Violet Gold New Dao Sect tried to kill me many times in the past and tried to capture me many times. Even though you’ve always looked down on me and humiliated me many times, I still…”
“I still chose to come and provide a.s.sistance. I brought my army and my twelve Spirit Immortals here. But what do I get in return? I get told that I’m going overboard!” w.a.n.g Baole’s agitated words spread through the surroundings and caused the surrounding Violet Gold New Dao Sect disciples who were cleaning up the battlefield to stop.
And w.a.n.g Baole’s words didn’t end there. Even though the Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch’s expression was already extremely ugly, w.a.n.g Baole’s loud voice still spread towards the surroundings.
“After I arrived here, I saved the Black Rift Legion commander at the earliest possible time. He tried to kill me previously, but what did I do? I disregarded our personal disputes and saw the bigger picture! Because I know that we are all people of the Divine Eye civilization. We must stand united. At this time, we must disregard all of our personal disputes, for we have to fight, both for our civilization and for our survival!
“But what do I get in return? It’s you telling me that I’m going overboard!”
After he said that, the surrounding Violet Gold New Dao Sect cultivators all went silent. That was especially so for the Black Rift Legion commander, who lowered his head. And the top-ranked army cultivators beside w.a.n.g Baole all naturally sided with him. At that moment, their gazes turned icy as they looked at the Violet Gold New Dao Sect. Spirit Immortals like the butler and Fairy Ling You also moved close to w.a.n.g Baole and stood behind him.
The injuries on the bodies of the rescuers and the tiredness in their expressions seemed to be a form of silent resistance as well. Even though he wanted to say something, this caused the Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch to not know where to begin.
“After I saved the Black Rift Legion commander, I saw that you were in danger, so I charged out with all my might. The Heavenly Spirit Sect’s right-hand elder slapped me until I spit blood. Although a mere Spirit Immortal like me has some skill, did I hide when faced with the palm of a Planet realm? Did I cower in fear? I didn’t. I still persevered. But what I get in return is you telling me that I’m going overboard!
“I risked my life to withstand a slap from a Planet realm. Seeing that he wanted to escape, I took out my Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps, disregarding the consequences. Even though my heart bled at the thought, I made them self-destruct without hesitation just to give you a chance to kill the right-hand elder. I did that to ensure a huge victory for your Violet Gold New Dao Sect! But now, after winning, have I lost my usefulness?”
“Is this the Violet Gold New Dao Sect? Is this the Violet Gold New Dao Sect that my Divine Sovereign Justice Sect came to rescue by dragging our tired bodies here and risking our lives? Violet Gold New Dao Sect Patriarch, no one finds cultivation easy. No one just randomly gets cultivation resources dropped from the sky for them. I, Long Nanzi, risked my life to gather materials to make my Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps. They were destroyed because I was trying to save your Violet Gold New Dao Sect. You personally said that you would make it up to me. I have nothing to say with regard to you going back on your word, but you still dare to say that I’ve gone overboard!” Speaking to this point, w.a.n.g Baole was so angry he was trembling. While his agitated voice spread towards the surroundings, it swayed everyone who heard him.
“The one thing I’ve done that’s gone overboard is choosing to come and save you!” That was especially so after w.a.n.g Baole spoke that last sentence. The Violet Gold New Dao Sect disciples couldn’t help but feel ashamed. After all… no matter what, this was indeed the case!
If w.a.n.g Baole hadn’t appeared, the battle… would definitely not have ended this way. They would probably still be fighting now. And both themselves and their fellow Daoists beside them would probably be corpses by now.
It was just that… while this thought appeared in their minds, another thought appeared in their minds as well. It was that… they couldn’t afford it.
How could they possibly cough up over 200 Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps… Also, those Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps obviously had issues. But they couldn’t say all of that now. Once they did, they would seem like ingrates.
This kind of moral kidnapping was what w.a.n.g Baole had learned during his years in the Federation. Applying it in the Divine Eye civilization now was obviously very effective as well.
The Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch’s expression was also twisted. He was already extremely frustrated but had no way of venting. In the end, he gritted his teeth, raised his right hand, and waved it. Instantly, seven rays of light appeared in the cosmos beside him.
After five of the light rays dispersed, they became five real Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps. Three of them were equivalent to an early-stage Spirit Immortal, one was equivalent to a mid-stage Spirit Immortal, and one… was in the shape of a crocodile. The disturbances it dispersed were that of a late-stage Spirit Immortal.
As for the other two light rays, one was a flying sword, and one was a spear. The two Dharmic treasures were of quite a high level. Although they couldn’t reach the level of a Divine Armament, they far exceeded the level of w.a.n.g Baole’s ninth-grade Dharmic Armaments and were Planet realm level Dharmic treasures.
“Long Nanzi, I’ll pay you back with these first…” The Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch gritted his teeth and spoke word by word. He could hardly suppress the indignance and emotional pain he felt right now.
w.a.n.g Baole blinked. He could see that the Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch was reaching his breaking point. Although he was still dissatisfied in his heart, he felt that so long as the Violet Gold New Dao Sect existed, they wouldn’t be able to run away from what they owed him. At most, he would just come and hara.s.s them a few more times for payment. Therefore, he raised his right hand, waved it, and quickly stored the five Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps and two Dharmic treasures.
I’ve made a loss. Over 200 Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps lost, and I only got five Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps and the two Dharmic treasures as compensation. I’ll accept this for now. w.a.n.g Baole looked depressed on the surface but felt extremely happy in his heart. Over 200 trash Dharmic Battles.h.i.+ps, whose only use was to self-destruct, got him that crocodile Dharmic Battles.h.i.+p, which was easily worth a hundred of them alone. Calculating it this way, the exchange was quite worth it.
Thinking that he had a numerical advantage, he pondered over whether to make the patriarch write an IOU. But seeing the anger that threatened to go out of control in the Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch’s eyes, w.a.n.g Baole sighed in his heart.
So be it. I’m too softhearted. You don’t need to write me an IOU. You can’t run away from what you owe me anyway. Thinking to this point, a smile appeared on w.a.n.g Baole’s face as he cupped his fists towards the Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch.
“Thank you, Patriarch. Um… if you need such help in the future, feel free to call for me. I’ll definitely rush here at the earliest time possible!”
“I can’t afford to use you. Goodbye!” The Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch flicked his sleeves, turned around, and left with a sullen face.
w.a.n.g Baole didn’t mind the Violet Gold New Dao Sect’s patriarch’s att.i.tude at all. After waving to the other disciples of the Violet Gold New Dao Sect, he sashayed as he brought the top-ranked army’s cultivators, who all had weird expressions, into the battles.h.i.+ps and left.
The battle could be considered to have come to an end. The Divine Eye civilization’s cosmos also entered a short repairing phase. The Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples who had escaped from the boundaries of the Violet Gold New Dao Sect also received orders from the Heavenly Spirit Sect’s sect lord after they left the sealed area, and communications were smooth. They were to head close to the Divine Eye civilization’s Eternal Star and gather there. The Divine Eye civilization’s royal family, who had all defaulted under the leaders.h.i.+p of their three princes, also gathered there. Hence, one could say that the entire Divine Eye civilization was divided into two factions.
One of them was the Heavenly Spirit Sect, while the other was the alliance of the Divine Sovereign Justice Sect and Violet Gold New Dao Sect.
Although the former were gathered together, they had paid a huge price. Their left-hand elder was heavily injured, and while their right-hand elder escaped successfully, he was still injured. But they were just the first wave of invaders after all. As a whole, they still had an extremely huge advantage.
And the latter…. prioritized building and repairing the large-scale teleportation array formations of the two sects as they regrouped after the battle. That way, even if the two sects weren’t in the same place, they could be deployed immediately and cooperate with one another.
While the battle entered a period of regrouping, w.a.n.g Baole led his own army and everyone from the top-ranked army back to the Divine Sovereign Justice Sect. News about what he did in the Violet Gold New Dao Sect had already spread, but the Sovereign Patriarch still pretended that he didn’t know about it and didn’t ask any questions. Instead, he conducted a grand welcoming ceremony for w.a.n.g Baole.
