Chapter 649: Seniors, Let Me See You Off
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Seeing Hong Yuye’s serious face, Jiang Hao felt somewhat worried.
Various things flashed through his mind, but he ultimately decided to stall for time.
“Senior, please allow me to explain,” Jiang Hao said in a calm voice.
Hong Yuye looked amused. She remained silent.
“It’s like this… I’ve been thinking about this matter for a long time,” Jiang Hao said.
“How long?” Hong Yuye suddenly asked.
“Since I met you, Senior, I’ve never dared to be negligent,” Jiang Hao said as he bowed his head. “Senior, your awe-inspiring presence, outstanding virtue, combat prowess, and exceptional fame have left a deep impression on me. I’ve always made buying good quality tea my priority..
Hong Yuye glanced at him and laughed. “Go on.”
Jiang Hao lowered his head and glanced outside. Normally, by now, the second day would have arrived, so why hadn’t Shangguan Qingsu and the others attacked?
“The matter with the tea encountered too many unexpected setbacks, which delayed it for quite some time. Otherwise, I would have prepared the best to satisfy you,” Jiang Hao said.
“Oh?” Hong Yuye showed a bit of interest. “What kind of unexpected setbacks? List them one by one.”
Jiang Hao lowered his head and fell silent. He couldn’t explain further, as that would only get him into trouble.
He had no choice but to maintain his silence.
Hong Yuye smiled. “It seems like someone is looking for you outside.”
Jiang Hao felt relieved. “I’ll go outside and check.”
When he opened the door, he saw three people kneeling at the entrance. Their limbs trembled, their faces were filled with fear, and their heads were pressed to the ground.
It was as though they had encountered the most terrifying thing in their lives.
“Seniors, why are you doing this?” Jiang Hao held the Thousand Faces Treasure Fan and fanned himself slowly.
“We didn’t know any better. Please, show us mercy, senior.” Shangguan Qingsu trembled.
Jiang Hao smiled. “Alright. Do you have any other matters to discuss, Seniors?
If not, our deal has already concluded. You may leave.”
The three individuals raised their heads and exchanged glances.
“Would you like it if I saw you out?” asked Jiang Hao. “No! We dare not,” the three of them said in fear.
After that, they got up and retreated.
Jiang Hao was quite surprised by their behavior. What had these three encountered? However, he suddenly realized that he needed to leave as well.
“Seniors, please stay. Allow me to escort you out,” he said as he closed the door and followed them.
However, Shangguan Qingsu and the others were terrified.
Jiang Hao saw them off downstairs and they left. Only then did they snap back to reality.
“What do we do now?” asked the pale-faced man.
“Do you think he can use the ability from yesterday once again?” Shangguan Qingsu asked.
No one answered.
They didn’t know these things. When they went after him, they realized their insignificance.
There were such powerful individuals overseas, but they rarely ever saw them.
Even when they did, these powerful people might not be willing to help them.
“Smiling San Sheng…” Shangguan Qingsu frowned and sighed. “Let’s return to our clan and tell them of this.”
This was the first time they had felt the curse being successfully suppressed.
Jiang Hao watched them leave and breathed a sigh of relief. He was much safer now.
He hadn’t earned many spirit stones from this interaction. He still needed to buy September Spring.
He was only fulfilling Hong Yuye’s task. However, she acted like she wasn’t involved in this, and he was just asking for favors from her.
It was difficult to predict the actions of the strong.
He had taken a stroll around but couldn’t find any proper shops.
‘What’s going on?’
If he couldn’t find big shops around, he wouldn’t be able to buy September Spring.
He asked the shopkeeper who sold talismans why there weren’t any shops nearbv. This place used to be deserted, and the current crowd was onlv temporarily there. That was why there weren’t many large shops here.
Jiang Hao tossed a spirit stone to the shopkeeper. “Do you know where I can buy September Spring Tea?”
“You can ask a powerful cultivator. Some high-level cultivators might have a reserve,” the stall owner said with a smile.
Jiang Hao nodded. Given the proximity to the Abyssal Sea, there were plenty of powerful cultivators around. Some of them might offer September Spring if they wanted to form a connection.
He asked around but didn’t find anyone selling September Spring. Although it was in high demand, it was uncommon in this area.
He thought he might as well go fishing. He had already completed half of his mission, and the rest depended on the changes in the Abyssal Sea.
However, that was not easy. The information about the Heart of the Ancestral Dragon had already been circulating for quite some time, yet there were no clear developments. He would have to wait for more information.
Jiang Hao’s main goal wasn’t the Heart of the Ancestral Dragon. It was the Archean Abyss Dragon Pearl.
That object was even more obscure. There was also the possibility that he would have to venture into the Abyssal Sea for it.
He had heard that there were new changes there, which made him think of the Archean Abyss Dragon Pearl. However, the details remained vague, and it would likely cost him spirit stones to obtain more information.
‘Maybe I should look for Tang Ya.’
Jiang Hao had already appraised Tang Ya. Unlike Madam Gong, she wasn’t scheming against him.
At the waterfront, Jiang Hao happened to see Tang Ya.
She was leaning against a pavilion pillar. Her gaze was somewhat vacant.
Beside her was a burly man who sat by the fishing platform. He seemed steady and calm. He was incredibly powerful.
Without even sensing his aura, Jiang Hao could guess that the man was exceptional.
It seemed that the Abyssal Sea was indeed no ordinary place. The fact that people gathered here indicated that they were all powerful cultivators, or perhaps they had powerful backers. Only strong individuals had the qualifications to compete for the Heart of the Ancestral Dragon. “Smiling San Sheng?” Tang Ya’s eyes lit up when she saw Jiang Hao.
“Miss Tang Ya,” Jiang Hao said politely.
He had intended to leave because he didn’t want to interact with someone so powerful.
Mr. Tao also looked over in surprise. “Friend, do you want to do some fishing?” He appeared calm and friendly.
‘Middle stage of the Return to Void Realm?’ Jiang Hao was a bit surprised that this man had suppressed his cultivation to such a low level.
From various signs, it was evident that this individual was extraordinary. He was possibly the most powerful person he had encountered during his time overseas.
“Thank you, but I have some urgent matters to attend to, so I can’t stay,” Jiang Hao said politely.
“Are you really not going to stay?” Tang Ya asked. “Mr. Tao knows a lot of things. You can ask anything. It’ll be much more efficient and informative than asking around. Besides, if you ask him about Feng Hua, he won’t demand spirit stones from you, unlike Shangguan Qingsu.”
Jiang Hao and Mr. Tao both were at a loss for words.
Jiang Hao felt embarrassed to just leave, while Mr. Tao forced a smile and hoped this person would insist on leaving..
