Chapter 441 – Blood Eye
Translator: Mr Voltaire
After the countless ordinary players and factions heard that the Undead Disaster had been created by Great Qin, they all wanted for there to be a peaceful resolution, or else they would suffer the most as a result of the Undead Disaster.
The foreign factions didn’t react as much because the Undead Disaster had only attacked three regions and was still quite far away from them. In actuality, they wanted it to rampage for as long as possible to weaken China as a whole, giving them a better chance against China.
However, this was only if the Undead Disaster didn’t reach them. If it really was as big as the rumors said it was, it would definitely extend to other countries because Zhao Fu didn’t have good relations with the foreign factions.
Now, everyone in China wanted peace and to settle. It wasn’t just the countless players. Countless factions, sects, and even the military hoped that Great Qin would stop this disaster.
They couldn’t find Great Qin’s Legatee, so countless people went to the Ying family to express intentions of peace, hoping that Great Qin’s Legatee would accept these sentiments. Facing these people, the Ying family couldn’t make any guarantees because the members of the Ying family were unable to affect Great Qin’s Legatee.
At the same time, the Ying family was somewhat fearful of these people because almost all of the powerful factions in China had come. In fact, even some of the neutral governmental factions had come to ask for peace.
Evidently, the terrifying results of the Undead Disaster had caused countless people to become afraid. If the Undead Disaster expanded to a greater scale, it was definitely something that could shake all of China.
If the Ying family refused, they would become enemies with all of these people, if not all of China. Even with the Ying family’s strength, it would be difficult to go against so many people, especially the governmental factions and the Ancient Clans, who had also asked for peace.
One had overwhelming strength, and the other had incredibly great power and authority. Normally, even the Ying family would have to give them face, but the key to this situation was Great Qin’s Legatee. After all, they were unable to make a decision for Great Qin’s Legatee.
After courteously receiving these people, they immediately went to Zhao Fu’s villa. Right now, Zhao Fu was Great Qin’s Legatee’s representative, so he was definitely with Great Qin’s Legatee. As such, it should be no problem to use him to pass a message to Great Qin’s Legatee.
However, after they arrived, they were stopped by his bodyguard, who said, “Apologies, Mr. Zhao is in the Heaven Awaken World, and he has ordered that he is not to be disturbed.”
Upon hearing this, one of the bodyguards was quite displeased, but just as he was about to rebuke the bodyguard, he was stopped by another family leader. The other family leader explained the situation and asked the bodyguard to think about the seriousness of the situation.
This bodyguard was the one Zhao Fu had kept this entire time. As Zhao Fu’s status rose, the bodyguard had also obtained a lot of power. He understood that Zhao Fu’s commands were paramount because the family leaders wouldn’t be able to disobey any order from him. That was how much power Zhao Fu had.
This was mainly because of Great Qin’s Legatee. With Great Qin’s Legatee supporting him, Zhao Fu’s status was higher than anyone else’s in the Ying family, so the prestigious family leaders had to treat even Zhao Fu’s bodyguard with respect.
Hearing the family leader’s explanation, the bodyguard realized that this matter was quite serious, so he asked the family leaders to wait and entered the room.
Currently, the Undead Disaster had just finished ravaging the third region, and some Skeletons had become even more powerful and could use the deathly aura to condense a bone bow, turning into Skeleton Archers that had long-range attacks.
Now, even those in the sky wouldn’t be able to escape. The Undead army’s strength had once again grown.
At that moment, Zhao Fu received a system announcement that there was someone in the real world trying to wake him up. Zhao Fu felt quite curious, but he decided to leave. After all, he had been in the Heaven Awaken World for a long time, and it would be good for him to eat some food and develop his plans.
The ten Disaster cavalrymen had countless Skeletons as shields, so if there was any danger, they could use the Skeletons to stall for time while they escaped and waited for his return.
After returning to the real world, Zhao Fu looked at the bodyguard waiting beside him and asked, “What is it?”
The bodyguard summarized what the family leaders had said to Zhao Fu.
Zhao Fu understood and nodded as he said, “Invite them in and have people prepare some food for me!”
The bodyguard obeyed and turned and left.
The family leaders entered with smiles on their faces and sat on the sofa. One of the family leaders said, “Zhao Fu, apologies for interrupting you. It’s just that we’re unable to make a decision about this, so we hope that you can pass on this information to Great Qin’s Legatee and ask him to make a decision.”
“There’s no need. Tell them to return. Back then, how did all of the northern side’s factions treat Great Qin? Now, they’re asking for peace; do they think that Great Qin is really that weak?” Zhao Fu immediately refused.
Hearing Zhao Fu’s words, the family leaders’ expressions became grim. They understood what Zhao Fu was saying, but all of the top factions from China had come, and the pressure from them was quite great. The Ying family couldn’t help but take a step back.
“Zhao Fu, we understand this, but because the entirety of China wants peace, it’s best that Great Qin takes a step back. It’s best not to offend all of China and become all of China’s enemy,” another family said, trying to persuade Zhao Fu.
This was indeed quite dangerous, but Zhao Fu’s eyes suddenly flashed with a blood-red light as he coldly said, “Great Qin will never take a step back. Let them do their worst – if they really try something, Great Qin won’t show any mercy.”
The amount of time and effort that Great Qin had put into the Undead Disaster greatly exceeded any of Zhao Fu’s predictions. Now that they had finally started, how could they stop so easily?
Hearing this, the family leaders sighed and thought that it was Great Qin’s Legatee who had told Zhao Fu to say this. As such, they didn’t say anything else. They were unable to change Great Qin’s Legatee’s plans, so they could only leave.
On the way, one of the family leaders suddenly said, “Just then, I saw Zhao Fu’s eyes suddenly flash with a blood-red light; they looked so horrifying. I felt that they were filled with an intense evilness and coldness. Zhao Fu isn’t simple at all.”
However, another family leader uncaringly replied, “Of course he’s not simple; otherwise, how could he be chosen by Great Qin’s Legatee? It’s only because of him that we’re able to contact Great Qin’s Legatee.”
Hearing this, the family leader who originally spoke felt that this was true and didn’t say anything else. Following this, the family leaders started to feel quite worried because they had to let the countless factions know of Great Qin’s Legatee’s decision. This would definitely cause a massive storm.
The family leaders went to the hall where the many leaders were gathered and announced, “Apologies, everyone. Great Qin’s Legatee has no intention of settling.”
These words caused the lively atmosphere to instantly fall silent.
