Chapter 557 Book 5: 43: Ambush
Book 5: Chapter 43: Ambush
Elite Halls strength underwent a complete transformation in the blink of an eye. Eighteen Heaven Blasting Cannons and five thousand Heaven Blasting Lightnings. This was like having eighteen Middle Heavenly Palace cultivators.
With the establishment of the Heaven Blasting Battalion, Gu Hai could leave many of Elite Halls matters to his subordinates to handle.
After obtaining eighteen Heaven Blasting Cannons, Mu Chenfeng felt utterly excited. He picked out trusted men and taught them how to use the Heaven Blasting Cannon.
Gu Hai had not informed the dragons about the eighteen Heaven Blasting Cannons. After the test fire, some dragons came to investigate the situation.
Mister Gu, did someone come to seek trouble with you again? Lin s.h.i.+zi asked.
No. I was just testing the Heaven Blasting Cannon, Gu Hai said with a smile.
Mu Chenfeng and the others had already put away the Heaven Blasting Cannons and the Heaven Blasting Lightnings. Naturally, they would remain tight-lipped about this.
Thats right. Mister Gu, we have already found the information that you asked us to investigate, Lin s.h.i.+zi said with a frown.
Oh? Gu Hai said.
It was the Divine Strategy Battalion who informed the angels, which led to the angels attempt to kill you when you returned to Elite Halls headquarters previously, Lin s.h.i.+zi said.
The Divine Strategy Battalions Li Shenji? Gu Hai suddenly narrowed his eyes, murderous intent flas.h.i.+ng in them.
This was not the first time; it had happened repeatedly. To think that Li Shenji was still trying to cause trouble for him.
We investigated all the guards in the surroundings, and that led us to the officer who checked your ident.i.ty when you first arrived in the heavenly courts thirty-three cities. He was the one who pa.s.sed the information to the Divine Strategy Battalion. Also, someone had seen Divine Strategy Battalion disciples heading to Yehuas residence, so, Lin s.h.i.+zi explained.
I got it. Many thanks. Gu Hai nodded.
Lin s.h.i.+zi nodded.
Although Gu Hai did not say anything, murderous intent blazed in his heart for an instant.
Brother-in-Law! Brother-in-Law, where are you? An excited shout suddenly came from outside.
Wanyu? Gu Hai felt slightly startled.
Princess, please wait. Ill go and report this, an Elite Hall disciple said respectfully outside.
Princess, there was news that Gu Hai is extremely violent, firing the Heaven Blasting Cannon at a mere whim. Dont barge in!
Scram! Long Wanyu immediately shouted.
A dull sound rang out as if Long Wanyu had kicked away the man in front of her.
Long Wanyu pushed the halls doors opened and saw Gu Hai discussing something with the dragons.
Brother-in-Law! Long Wanyu immediately called out with pleasant surprise on her face.
It really is Brother-in-Law! Brother-in-Law is back?
Gu Hai smiled faintly when he saw Long Wanyu.
Outside Heavenly Chen City:
Li Shenji narrowed his eyes slightly as he looked towards Elite Halls territory in the distance.
The sixth one already? Li Shenji said.
Yes, there were only ten Heaven Blasting Lightnings. Gu Hai has already used six, so there are four left, a subordinate said respectfully.
That is good. Li Shenji revealed a cold smile.
Battalion Commander, the Spirit Mountain Holy Land, the Myriad Age Daoist Sect, and the Solar Divine Palace now view Gu Hai as their enemy. Why is he causing trouble with everyone? that subordinate said with a bitter smile.
He is just seeking death. Humph! There are four more Heaven Blasting Lightnings. After they are gone, it will be time for him to die! Li Shenji said coldly.

In Elite Hall:
Brother-in-Law, why have you not gone to Heavenly Yin City yet? The Ten Thousand Sages Convention will begin in ten days. Right now, many of the cultural cultivators have already headed there to register themselves with their invitations and prepare to partic.i.p.ate in the Ten Thousand Sages Convention, Long Wanyu said.
I am about to go. I arranged for Bing Ji, Mo Yike, and the rest to go and register first, Gu Hai said with a smile.
Brother-in-Law, you had better go quickly, then. Bing Ji is injured, and Mo Yike is currently battling someone. I was initially planning to come with them, but they could not leave, Long Wanyu said anxiously.
Bing Ji is injured? Mister Mo is battling someone? What is going on? Gu Hais face sank.
Uh? Mo Yike said it was a cultural battle, so no one could be blamed. Since Bing Ji was injured by someones calligraphy Dao, and Mo Yike was facing someone in Go, they couldnt leave. I was planning to take revenge for them, but Mo Yike told me not to, Long Wanyu explained.
Oh? A Go match? Mister Mos Go Dao is quite incredible. There is someone capable of delaying him? Gu Hais face sank.
Indeed. We should go quickly, Long Wanyu persuaded.
Gu Hai nodded. Let me pack, and we will leave for Heavenly Yin City immediately.
After some simple arrangements, Gu Hais group boarded flying s.h.i.+ps and left for Heavenly Yin City. This time, the dragons did not follow them.
Naturally, Long Wanyu joined Gu Hai on his flying s.h.i.+p.
Ever since the string of events involving Elite Hall, many people started to pay attention to its movements.
Gu Hais flying s.h.i.+p left Heavenly Chen City beneath the interested gaze of many experts.
That troublemaker is finally leaving! The Heavenly Chen City Lord let out a long breath.
However, Li Shenji narrowed his eyes slightly, showing a grave expression.
Battalion Commander, you guessed that Gu Hai would be going to Heavenly Yin City soon. However, Princess Wanyu came to bring him over. Should we still take action? a subordinate asked worriedly.
Never mind. Cancel it, Li Shenji sighed.
However, Battalion Commander, even if we dont do anything, the othersthe other parties will
Them? What they do has nothing to do with us. They should understand the problem and not dare to harm Princess Wanyu, Li Shenji said.
Gu Hais flying s.h.i.+p flew in the sky for a while.
Long Wanyu felt very excited, continuously introducing various places to Gu Hai.
Brother-in-Law, how come Mu Chenfeng did not come with us? Long Wanyu asked out of curiosity.
Mu Chenfeng? I arranged for him to do something else, Gu Hai replied with a smile.
Something else? What? Long Wanyu asked.
I recently offended some people, so we might encounter some trouble on this trip. Mu Chenfeng is responsible for handling it, Gu Hai explained, smiling.
Trouble? Are there people who dare to a.s.sa.s.sinate us in the heavenly courts cities? Long Wanyu glared.
One of Long Wanyus retinue started questioning Gu Hai in an accusatory tone. Mister Gu, are we in danger? Then, why did you bring the princess? You are
Whats with all this nonsense? Since my brother-in-law said that there would be trouble, he must have a way of dealing with it. Why are you blindly arguing about this? Long Wanyu immediately shouted.
That person appeared wronged.
Gu Hai showed a faint, bitter smile. Initially, he did not want to bring Long Wanyu. After all, he had already planned this and was preparing to catch everyone in one go. With Long Wanyu here, some of them would not dare to come.
The flying s.h.i.+p did not move very quickly. There did not seem to be any danger in this vast, endless sky.
Brother-in-Law, where is the trouble? Why dont I see it? Long Wanyu asked, frowning.
Just then, the flying s.h.i.+p flew into a large white cloud.
The moment the flying s.h.i.+p entered the white cloud, Gu Hai waved his hand, and a barrier formed around the flying s.h.i.+p, protecting it.
When the flying s.h.i.+p entered the white cloud, the surroundings immediately turned dark. The scene before everyone changed radically as if they had entered a new world.
Dark clouds covered this new world, and there was a surging sea below. The flying s.h.i.+p seemed to have arrived at the sea in an instant.
How did we suddenly get here? Long Wanyus eyes lit up.
Oh no! This is a ritual array, a highly profound ritual array. We fell for an ambus.h.!.+ Long Wanyus subordinate exclaimed.
However, Gu Hai narrowed his eyes slightly as he looked around.
Come out, then! Gu Hai said coldly.
Hahahahahaha! Gu Hai, I have been waiting for you for a long time! Cold laughter echoed in this ritual array world.
A sea wave suddenly soared up in the distant sea, carrying a black-clad man who looked at Gu Hais flying s.h.i.+p coldly.
Gong Tian? Theres only you? Gu Hai said with a slight frown.
Oh? You knew about me? Then, why did you still come in? Gong Tians face sank.
There should be more than you. Where are the others? Gu Hai asked.
Huh? How did you know? Gong Tians expression turned stiff.
You cant be the only one trying to deal with me, Gu Hai said coldly.
Humph! Indeed. We have been waiting in Heavenly Chen City for you to come out alone. There was someone leading the group, and we planned to deal with you together. Unfortunately, Long Wanyu followed you, so they did not dare to anymore. Bunch of cowards. Even if they dont dare to, Ill deal with you all the same. Now that you have entered my ritual array, you can forget about getting out, Gong Tian said coldly.
How bold of you! Do you know who I am? How dare you ambush us in the heavenly courts cities? Long Wanyu immediately said, glaring.
Haha! The Qian Heavenly Emperor is currently meeting with the experts of various factions. He wont have time for you. Princess Wanyu, dont worry; I wont hurt you. I only want justice from Gu Hai, Gong Tian said coldly.
Someone leading the group? Hah! Li Shenji, right? Gu Hai said coldly.
Huh? Gong Tian coldly eyed Gu Hai.
Gong Tian? Let me guess. You came to deal with me behind the Azure Emperors back, right? Gu Hai said coldly.
Youhow did you know? Gong Tians expression changed.
The Azure Emperor is not stupid enough to ambush me at this moment. All the more would he not send you when he knows that Wanyu is with me. This time, you brought disaster upon yourself, Gu Hai said coldly.
Humph! Gu Hai, are you trying to scare me? You are too inexperienced for that. No one can save you today. You might have the Heaven Blasting Cannon, but it is useless in my world. Do you believe that? Gong Tian said coldly.
Lets give it a try, then, Gu Hai sneered.
A loud sound rang out in this dark world. Then, an immense force barged in from outside, blowing a large hole in this dark world.
Gong Tians expression changed as he said blankly, The Heaven Blasting Cannon is outside?
Then, he saw a flying s.h.i.+p at a higher alt.i.tude. Mu Chenfeng and a group of Elite Hall disciples stood on that flying s.h.i.+p, aiming the Heaven Blasting Cannon at the white cloud.
The shot had opened a large hole in the white cloud, revealing the ritual array world.
How bold of you! Many soldiers immediately soared into the sky from all directions, coldly eyeing Mu Chenfengs flying s.h.i.+p. However, they saw the ritual array in the drifting, white cloud in the next moment.
This is? The soldiers appeared confused.
In a corner far away, Yehuas expression turned sullen. Gu Hai? You are truly sneaky. Fortunately, I did not go to ambush you with that fool, Gong Tian.
In another corner, Xuan En narrowed his eyes slightly. I just knew that it would not be that simple. Humph! Li Shenji, how dare you trick me?
In a mountain forest, Li Shenji looked at the flying s.h.i.+p in the sky. The Heaven Blasting Cannon still has three more shots.
