Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 02 Chapter 004: Evil Men Valley

Evil Men Valley:

Whipped by the black-clad men, all the bronze-masked men slowly and reluctantly entered Evil Men Valley.

Just like Chen Tianshan, everyone knew of Evil Men Valley’s notoriety.

“This is a prison for all the evil men of the Thousand Islands Sea. These evil men will eventually be sent to the beast arena to fight to the death.” Chen Tianshan showed an extremely unsightly expression.

Gu Hai remained silent. Gao Xianzhi stood behind Gu Hai, also remaining silent.

“Division…Milord, what should we do now?” Chen Tianshan asked worriedly. 

“Don’t get worked up. Since we are already here, let’s just make the best of the situation. Right now, we are not in a position to decide what to do. Let’s figure the situation out first,” Gu Hai replied softly.

“Yes!” Chen Tianshan said bitterly.

At this moment, if not for Gu Hai’s presence, Chen Tianshan would have lost himself to despair. He knew what would happen to the bronze-masked men. They would either die in the beast arena or fight endlessly until they died fighting.

The moment Gu Hai entered the valley, he felt sensed people staring at him.

From a careful look, Gu Hai saw that the valley was dark and large. There were dirt mounds in the surroundings, resembling small bunkers. Two or three bronze-masked men hung around each mound, apparently keeping watch.

Although Gu Hai could not see their faces, he could make out malicious intent from the various pairs of eyes.

Were these the fiendish evil men who came here before them?

When Gu Hai’s group entered the valley, many of them showed ferocious expressions and not much fear. These were all hardened criminals, ruthless people, so they just sinisterly sized up their surroundings.

Crack! Crack!

A black-clad man of the Great Feng Mafia Family cracked his whip and shouted, “Everyone, gather over here. Quickly!”

These evil people in the valley seemed very obedient, assembling quickly.

A group of black-clad men watched coldly, surveilling the surroundings.

In the blink of an eye, four thousand evil people gathered. They moved incredibly swiftly. After they arrived, they immediately stood in orderly rows.

However, there were ten who were slightly slower.

“Humph? So slow? That’s great. The ten of you will go to the beast arena, then!” the leading black-clad man said with a glare.

“No, Senior! I had an upset stomach earlier!”

“Senior, I just went to the beast arena and managed to return alive. My injuries were severe, so I was slower!”

“Me too! Senior, I’m covered in injuries!”

These ten evil people immediately begged for mercy.

“Humph! Shackle them!” The leading black-clad man just glared and ignored them.

In the blink of an eye, the other black-clad men shackled the ten. However, the ten did not dare to resist.

“Remove the shackles and chains from these one hundred newcomers’ hands and legs!” the leading black-clad man ordered.

“Yes!” The group of black-clad men quickly removed the shackles and chains from Gu Hai and the others.

The newcomers’ bodies immediately felt significantly more relaxed.

The leading black-clad man looked coldly at Gu Hai and the others and said, “I don’t care who you were previously. Now that you are at my Great Feng Mafia Family, you will follow orders like dogs. Otherwise, we will kill you!”

The one hundred newcomers immediately showed rage on their faces upon hearing the leading black-clad men’s humiliating shout.

“Who did you say is a dog?” a newcomer demanded, unwilling to submit. 

The experienced evil people in the surroundings all revealed cold smiles.

Crack!

Suddenly, a whip struck that person’s body. The whip contained a large amount of Veritable Energy. When the whip struck that person, it cut that person in half at the waist.

Then, blood sprayed everywhere.

The expressions of the surrounding newcomers immediately changed. They clenched their fists and no longer dared to talk back.

“Calling you dogs is already showing you great regard. You’d better follow the rules!” the leading black-clad man said coldly.

No one dared to talk back.

“Everyone has a serial number. Just quietly remain here after this. When we call your number, come out!” the leading black-clad man added coldly.

The leading black-clad man turned his head and looked at the veteran evil people. Then, he said coldly, “This group is new; teach them the rules!”

All of the evil men did not dare to say anything.

“Let’s go!” the leading black-clad man said coldly.

Then, he led the group of black-clad men and the ten unfortunate evil men out of the valley.

The one hundred newcomers looked at the four thousand evil men. They did not show any fear, despite thinking that the old and the new would have a clash.

However, the previously orderly four thousand evil men just scattered. They merely shot malicious glares at the newcomers before ignoring them.

Teach the newcomers the rules? Who could be bothered?

The one hundred newcomers looked at one another but did not say much. Then, they scattered and found a place to rest.

Naturally, Gu Hai’s group of three gathered together. They sat under a secluded boulder.

“Those veterans did not come to seek trouble for us?” Chen Tianshan said, feeling confused.

Gu Hai shook his head and asked, “Why would they seek trouble for us?” 

“Huh?”

“There is no benefit to fight over. Anyone with any brains would not seek trouble. Furthermore, everyone’s cultivation is sealed. They are now ordinary people. If they died fighting here, it would not be worth it,” Gao Xianzhi explained.

“Oh!” Chen Tianshan nodded.

Gu Hai’s group of three remained seated at the secluded spot and sized up the surrounding evil men. At the same time, the surrounding evil men likewise sized them up. No one showed any kind intentions in their eyes, just malicious intent.

“It is indeed Evil Men Valley,” Gu Hai said coldly with slightly narrowed eyes.

“Gao Xianzhi, is the Earth Division Master’s authority token still with you?” Gu Hai asked seriously.

“Yes, Milord. Although they searched us and took everything away, they did not check the sole of my shoe. I hid the authority token there, and everything is intact,” Gao Xianzhi explained.

Gu Hai nodded. “Keep it first.”

“Yes!”

“Milord, I heard that once one enters Evil Men Valley, one can forget about leaving. They sealed everyone’s cultivation. What are we going to do?” Chen Tianshan asked worriedly.

“Let me take a look at the seal,” Gu Hai said.

Then, Gu Hai closed his eyes and sank his consciousness into his dantian.

Buzz!

Hazy gray energy seemed to isolate his dantian. Gu Hai could not investigate his dantian at all. He could not drive the Veritable Energy in it, either.

After a while, Gu Hai opened his eyes and showed a sullen expression.

“Division Master, despite being at the Golden Core Realm, I cannot force the seal open,” Chen Tianshan said with an unsightly expression.

“Right now, we have two difficult problems before us. One is the seal. The other is the bronze mask on our faces,” Gao Xianzhi said with an unsightly expression.

“Look! Someone is trying to run?” Chen Tianshan’s eyes lit up.

The three saw a newcomer scaling the cliff in the distance. Despite having his cultivation sealed, his movements were incredibly nimble. He slowly climbed towards the summit, looking like he would climb over and flee Evil Men Valley.

When that person tried to flee, the surrounding evil men did not stop him.

The four thousand veterans watched indifferently, occasionally showing a cold smile.

Soon, that person reached the midway point, and his head crossed it.

Buzz!

Suddenly, a blue ripple appeared in the sky, like a transparent shield covering the entire valley. The blue light only appeared when that person touched the shield.

Boom!

Before that person could cry out, the bronze mask on his face exploded. In the blink of an eye, his head vanished.

Thud!

The headless corpse fell.

“Gasp!” The newcomers all inhaled sharply.

“Once one puts on the bronze mask, one cannot remove it. If one forcefully removes it, it will explode. If one activates the mechanism while fleeing, it will also explode. One cannot flee; it is impossible!” Chen Tianshan showed a horrified expression.

“Calm down!” Gu Hai ordered in a cold voice.

“Milord?” Chen Tianshan looked at Gu Hai bitterly.

“Since they can put the mask on, there is a method to remove it. Calm down. There will definitely be a way. There is always hope while one is alive. Hope is gone only after one dies,” Gu Hai said.

“Yes!” Chen Tianshan and Gao Xianzhi answered.

Gu Hai, Chen Tianshan, and Gao Xianzhi spent the night in silence, sitting quietly in their corner. They did their best to connect to their Veritable Energy. However, this seal was too strange. Nothing they did had an effect.

Late at night, Gu Hai took out some food from his authority token for the three to eat in secret.

While their cultivations were sealed, making them no different from ordinary people, they still had strong physiques and could last a long time. However, Gu Hai did not want them to lose their strength.

Early the next morning:

Bang!

Suddenly, rats fell from the sky in large numbers, tossed down from above the valley.

“Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak!”

The rats let out miserable squeaks in the sky. However, the eyes of the four thousand veteran evil men in the valley immediately lit up.

Boom!

All the veteran evil men burst into action, rushing towards the rats.

Chomp!

The first person to catch a rat immediately opened his mouth and placed the rat in, doing his best to chew it.

Chen Tianshan’s expression changed. “This is the food for the evil men? Rats?”

“Quickly, snatch them!” Gu Hai’s expression turned sullen.

“Ah? Milord, we are going to eat rats?” Chen Tianshan’s expression changed.

“Eating or not is one thing. Snatching or not is another,” Gu Hai said coldly.

Boom!

Gao Xianzhi immediately followed orders, quickly going to snatch rats.

Gu Hai also rushed to the center, trying to snatch the falling rats. Chen Tianshan followed close behind, grimacing in extreme disgust.

Perhaps they were too used to it, but the evil men did not reject eating the rats. The most important thing was preserving their strength to live longer. One had hope if one lived. If one died, there would be nothing.

In the blink of an eye, Gao Xianzhi managed to snatch a rat.

Boom!

Suddenly, someone attacked Gao Xianzhi. It was a man with a knife scar on his face.

Gao Xianzhi stumbled and tripped. The dead rat fell out of his hand. Then, the scar-faced man showed a sinister expression as he pounced over to the dead rat.

“You are seeking death!”

Gu Hai suddenly appeared and punched.

“Huh?” The scar-faced man’s expression changed as he counterpunched.

Boom!

A loud sound rang out when the fists clashed. Gu Hai crushed a rock under his foot and stabilized himself. However, the scar-faced man stumbled back seven or eight steps.

After all, Gu Hai cultivated physically. In a clash of physical strength, few could match him.

“Brat, are you seeking death?” the scar-faced man demanded ruthlessly.

“The things that are not yours will never be yours! How might I address you?” Gu Hai countered coldly.

Gu Hai’s earlier punch caused the pupils of the surrounding evil men, who were snatching rats, to constrict as they coldly eyed Gu Hai.

The scar-faced man showed a cold smile and said, “Remember this: I am Scar. Brat, I’ll remember you!”

Gu Hai smiled coldly and ignored Scar.

Gu Hai, Chen Tianshan, and Gao Xianzhi brought back ten dead rats. Gu Hai could feel Scar repeatedly turning his head to look at him with a cold gaze that said he wanted to swallow him whole.

The people who caught rats all chewed on them. Blood dribbled out of their mouths. All the evil men only had one thought: survive!

Novel Notes

Hey guys, you all probably have been seeing the occasional message about Patreon and how EIF isn't doing very well financially. So I held out as long as I can, and unfortunately, things are not looking up. In the interest of being able to keep up a sustainable income to pay my bills and pay the team sufficiently, I'm going to have to lower the release rates of EIF in favor of picking up another novel. As of now, I have not found another novel yet, but I will be decreasing the release rates from May onwards so that I have time to search for the next novel. For now, the rates will be lowered to 30 chapters a month, essentially daily chapters.
