Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 02 Chapter 027: Intimidating Bandits

The revelation of Gu Hai’s face was like an intense earthquake. It immediately shook up the surrounding gamblers, causing a huge commotion. Even with the heavy rain and the long distance, everyone in the Great Feng Mafia Family could hear the uproar.

Many of the cultivators in the guest region did not come. However, when they heard the uproar, they also walked out of their residences.

“Senior Brother, hurry! Come quickly. We found Gu Hai!”

“Master, hurry to the beast arena! It’s Gu Hai! Gu Hai!”

With various shouts, commotion, and the sound of doors opening, nearly all the cultivators in the guest region rushed to the beast arena without clarifying the situation.

------

At the beast arena, Meng Tai stood in a corner while hugging Feng Ling. He goggled at the tumult in the surroundings.

The commotion was like a loud explosion, resounding in all directions.

What is the situation?

What did Gu Hai do to anger so many people? Why is everyone looking at him with bloodshot eyes?

Chen Tianshan and Gao Xianzhi revealed bitter smiles. The other three thousand-odd evil men appeared confused.

Is Milord’s face really that shocking? Why did the previously quiet gamblers suddenly break out in such a large commotion like they went mad?

It was not just a commotion. Many of these cultivators rushed over, drawing their weapons as they looked at Gu Hai with bloodshot eyes.

Furthermore, the number of people increased over time.

“Is it really Gu Hai?” A red-clad man who had rushed over from the guest area wanted to charge ahead.

“Master, don’t! Wait first!” Someone immediately held the red-clad man back.

“What are we waiting for? Gu Hai is just an Innate Realm cultivator. Can he run?” the red-clad man demanded while glaring.

“No! Master, you just arrived, so you don’t know. That Gu Hai just killed a Nascent Soul Realm cultivator! Hey, wait, maybe that Nascent Soul Realm cultivator is not dead yet.”

The red-clad man stopped in his tracks after just one step. Then, he looked at his disciple skeptically. “What nonsense are you speaking? He is just an Innate Realm cultivator. How can he kill a Nascent Soul Realm cultivator?”

“It’s true. Many people saw it. If you don’t believe me, you can ask Junior Brother!”

Many people came over. However, there were also many people who showed fear in their eyes. Gu Hai had been too ferocious earlier. The brutality of the evil men was still vivid in their minds. If they charged over now, would that not just be…?

Even though many people were afraid, there were still many who charged over.

The three thousand-odd evil men extremely quickly shielded Gu Hai, putting him in the center. They showed ferocious expressions as they looked at the people charging over from all directions.

The three thousand-odd evil men did not care what malicious intentions others had. Now, they felt all sorts of mixed emotions; their loyalty to Gu Hai reached new heights. Now, anyone who wished ill of their boss would be their enemy.

Shing! Shing!

The evil men raised their weapons and pointed them at the cultivators rushing over.

While standing in the middle of the evil men, Gu Hai looked around with a cold smile as he took in everyone targeting him. The situation was different now. He was no longer the Gu Hai of a few months ago who could only run.

“Gu Hai, is the century lifespan immortality peach still with you?” a cultivator shouted.

When this voice rang out, all the cultivators stopped and waited for Gu Hai’s answer.

The cultivators at the very front showed complicated expressions. As they looked at the ferocious evil men, they hoped that Gu Hai would deny it. They wanted to avoid this fight if they could.

However, Gu Hai smiled coldly as he replied, “The century lifespan immortality peach? It’s still with me!”

“Huh?” The expressions of the surrounding cultivators changed.

“Do you want it? Come and get it. Let’s see if you have the capabilities to do so!” Gu Hai said coldly.

As Gu Hai spoke, he waved and took out a jade box from the compressed space in his authority token. Then, he opened the jade box in front of everyone, revealing a glistening golden peach.

When everyone saw that peach, they inhaled sharply.

On the one hand, they felt excited at seeing the immortality peach. On the other hand, they felt shocked at Gu Hai’s actions. Gu Hai, what are you doing? If you had said that you ate the immortality peach, we might have given up on attacking you.

Gu Hai looked at everyone coldly. He did not reveal the century lifespan immortality peach to show off. After all, he was already past the age of being prideful. He had his plans for showing the century lifespan immortality peach.

“Everyone, attack! The century lifespan immortality peach belongs to whoever manages to snatch it!”

“Attack!”

Boom!

Large numbers of cultivators charged at Gu Hai.

Gu Hai showed an icy gaze. He did not shift from where he stood, as he did not need to do so. When the cultivators charged over, the three thousand-odd evil men immediately demonstrated their ferocity.

“Hah!”

The three thousand-odd evil men suddenly charged forward while roaring.

Rumble…!

The two sides started fighting in the blink of an eye. The evil men’s combat prowess allowed them to fight against ten alone. When they fought, they did so extremely ferociously, attacking brutally. The evil men immediately sent hundreds of cultivators flying. Those cultivators vomited blood even before crashing on the ground.

“Ah!”

“My arm!”

“The brutal evil men!”

Rumble…!

In just the initial exchange, hundreds of cultivators fell to the ground, moaning miserably. Four evil men seized the first person to yell “charge,” each evil man grabbing hold of a limb. Then, they pulled hard, ripping that person into pieces and splattering his blood in all directions.

Rip!

The cultivators thinking of charging forward paused with horrified expressions as they took in the battle before them.

This was too brutal.

Of course, most people did not think of joining the fight. They only watched, waiting for an opportunity to take action.

The battle suddenly came to a stop. The surroundings hushed, leaving only the sound of rain and sweat dripping on the ground.

Gu Hai smiled coldly.

Clink!

Gu Hai closed the lid of the jade box. It sounded like mockery to everyone that charged over.

Gu Hai swept his gaze over all the cultivators. Many of them did not dare to meet his eyes. Some of the mentally weaker ones even retreated a step.

“It looks like you won’t be able to take it away today!” Gu Hai sneered. Then, he returned the jade box to the compressed space with a flip of his hand.

The countless cultivators showed complicated expressions as they stared at Gu Hai.

After taking a deep breath, Gu Hai suddenly shouted, “Starting today, we will be taking over the Great Feng Mafia Family. The Great Feng Mafia Family’s beast arena will again be open to everyone three days later. All those who want to gamble, do prepare your money!”

“Huh?” The surrounding people goggled.

“What? Gu Hai is not going to flee? He is going to set up shop here? After killing off the Great Feng Mafia Family, he wants to succeed their business?”

Many cultivators could not understand what Gu Hai was thinking.

However, one thing was for sure. Gu Hai was not leaving for now. That was good. Those people who charged to their deaths earlier were disorganized. As long as the cultivators took the time to organize themself, perhaps—no—they definitely could snatch the century lifespan immortality peach.

“Scar, lead the Profound Legion to put masks on the Great Feng Mafia Family disciples. Seal their cultivations and send them to Evil Men Valley. We are restarting Evil Men Valley. Three days later, we will start up the beast arena again!” Gu Hai instructed Scar.

“Yes!” Scar shouted excitedly.

The Profound Legion’s evil men also cheered enthusiastically. The situation had flipped. Previously, they were like slaves, sent to the beast arena to fight to the death. These Great Feng Mafia Family disciples had abused them, sending them to their deaths at a whim. Today, the tables were turned. The beast arena would start again three days later? Sending the Great Feng Mafia Family disciples to kill each other?

Just thinking about it thrilled the evil men. Where could they find such refreshing revenge? This was even better than killing the Great Feng Mafia Family disciples themselves. They could make the Great Feng Mafia Family disciples suffer what they had been through.

The evil men all felt excited, looking forward to the killings that will take place three days later.

“Chen Tianshan, lead the Earth Legion to restore the beast arena. We will start the gambling three days later!” Gu Hai instructed.

“Yes!” all the Earth Legion evil men answered cheerfully.

“Gao Xianzhi, lead the Heaven Legion to search the Great Feng Mafia Family for their goods. Don’t miss anything; check everything. Two days later, we will split the loot!” Gu Hai instructed.

“Yes!” all the evil men answered excitedly.

Splitting the spoils was like giving out a salary. Although these people were already loyal to Gu Hai, they would carry out their duties with even more zeal if he gave out spirit stones.

Then, Gu Hai turned his head to look at Meng Tai and Feng Ling.

“Division Master Meng, will you and Feng Ling remain in my Great Feng Mafia Family to treat your injuries first?” Gu Hai asked seriously.

Meng Tai raised his eyebrows. Your Great Feng Mafia Family? I was the one who raised up this Great Feng Mafia Family back then. However, he did not argue with Gu Hai. He had lost everything long ago. Gu Hai had fought for everything in the Great Feng Mafia Family with his abilities.

“That would be good!” Meng Tai nodded.

Then, Meng Tai turned his head to look at the vegetative Li Wei. He said, “Division Master Gu, since you already removed the masks, there is no need for Li Wei to continue living, right?”

Feng Ling, who was in Meng Tai’s embrace, suddenly trembled.

However, Gu Hai smiled faintly and shook his head. Then, he said in a determined tone, “Division Master Meng, I was the one who defeated Li Wei, not you.”

Meng Tai frowned.

Gu Hai meant It is not up to you to make decisions on my matters.

“Ha! Hahahaha! Division Master Gu, you are indeed an extraordinary hero!” Meng Tai guffawed while showing a slightly discomfited expression in his eyes.

“It’s the same for you. Oh, by the way, while you were locked up for twenty years, there was another Division Master Meng Tai as Elite Hall’s Earth Division Master,” Gu Hai said.

“Oh? There was another Meng Tai? Ah, that might be the doing of that old crone Ding Rui. She must have found a substitute for me. Humph! Many thanks to Division Master Gu for informing me about it. I will deal with it myself. That person did not cause Division Master Gu any problems, right?” Meng Tai said after taking a deep breath.

Gu Hai shook his head and smiled while staring at Meng Tai. “Trouble? Not really. That Meng Tai tried to trap me, so I killed him!”

Meng Tai’s pupils suddenly contracted. Gu Hai’s words seemed factual, but there was a double meaning to them. Gu Hai seemed to be warning him.

“Hahahaha! That’s good!” Meng Tai laughed while showing a strange expression.

“I might need some pointers from Division Master Meng on the beast arena’s restoration. How about Division Master Meng stay near the beast arena so that Chen Tianshan can seek Division Master Meng for advice on what he does not know?” Gu Hai smiled.

Gu Hai did not intend to let Meng Tai into the family region. Meng Tai’s expression changed. When he looked at his injuries, he felt frustrated and angry. However, he still smiled and said, “That’s fine.”

Gu Hai nodded while smiling.

He turned his head and looked at the vegetative Li Wei not far away. Then, he instructed Shangguan Hen, “Bring him with us!”

“Yes!” Shangguan Hen answered.

Following Gu Hai’s arrangements, the evil men got busy.

As for the surrounding cultivators, none of them charged forward. When they saw Gu Hai’s swagger, they felt frustrated and cursed in their hearts.

We are here to snatch your immortality peach, here to kill you. Why are you not afraid? Why are you treating us like air? Screw your sister!

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.
