Jiang Hao wanted to leave but realized that what Tang Ya said made sense.
Moreover, individuals of the caliber like Mr. Tao were unlikely to act recklessly.
Furthermore, the way Tang Ya addressed this man piqued his interest.
In the Heavenly Tower, very few were addressed as “Mr.” If someone as formidable as Tang Ya was addressing him with respect, he must be someone powerful.
Jiang Hao glanced at the robust man who was fishing.
He felt that the person might be from the Heavenly Tower, like Madam Gong. However, he didn’t know who he was exactly.
“Well, then… It’d be impolite of me to refuse,” said Jiang Hao.
If this person were truly a “Mr.” of the Heavenly Tower, he could provide valuable information.
After taking a seat nearby, Jiang Hao took out a fishing rod and began fishing.
“Aren’t you going to use bait?” Tang Ya asked curiously.
“Anything willing will bite,” Jiang Hao said mysteriously.
It wasn’t that he lacked bait, but he could sense that the fish here weren’t interested in it. He didn’t know what they liked to eat.
“Anything willing will bite?” Tang Ya frowned. “You’re as boring as Mr. Tao.”
Jiang Hao smiled and remained silent.
“Did you come here alone, Disciple San Sheng?” Mr. Tao asked.
“Do you know me?” Jiang Hao asked. He knew that this man was well-informed, but he needed to continue the conversation somehow.
If he just answered this person’s questions, he might be led in a certain direction and wouldn’t get to ask what he wanted.
“I have heard of you from many people,” Mr. Tao said with a smile. “Everyone calls me Mr. Tao. You can call me that too if you don’t mind.”
Jiang Hao nodded politely. He now had a rough idea of who his person was, but he needed more information.
“Did you come here for the Ancestral Dragon’s Heart?” Mr. Tao asked.
Jiang Hao shook his head. “I don’t have the ability to compete for the Ancestral
“Is it because of the new aura that has appeared? It seems to be emanating from beneath the Abyssal Sea. It has grown more active in the past few days as if something is calling it or resonating with it,” Mr. Tao said.
Jiang Hao was surprised. “Are you saying something has emerged from the Abyssal Sea?”
“It’s possible, but no one has ventured in to confirm. It’s too dangerous to enter, and those who do never return with news,” Mr. Tao said.
“Could it be that someone from inside is trying to get out?” Jiang Hao asked.
He remembered that Heavenly King Hai Luo’s lover was in that sea, and Hai Luo was doing everything in his power to help her. Perhaps that had some effect.
“Nobody knows for sure, as no one has seen it themselves. Some people plan to go in with the nether Fish. If they find anything, they will communicate the message through the Nether Fish,” Mr. Tao said.
Jiang Hao nodded. Those who entered probably wouldn’t be able to leave again.
“Something else has happened,” Mr. Tao said as he looked out at the sea. “The Ancestral Dragon’s Heart also seems to have become more active. Many people have sensed it, and it seems to be related to the sudden changes in the area. If it is related to a person, that’s fine, but many are concerned that a True Dragon
“A True Dragon?” Jiang Hao looked toward the Abyssal Sea.
It wasn’t impossible. It was normal for the Dragon Clan to be there.
He had only met a young dragon named Xiao Li. If he could peacefully communicate with a True Dragon, he might be able to ask about Xiao Li.
“It’s just speculation, though. They say that the blood of a True Dragon has been sent out from Chaos Stone Island and will arrive in a few days. That is expected to create quite a stir,” Mr. Tao said.
Jiang Hao nodded and remained silent. He could sense the presence of a Nether Fish nearby.
He saw one of the fish hovering near Mr. Tao’s bait.
‘Can he not see it?’ Jiang Hao was surprised. He had discovered traces of the fish by extending his senses, but he wasn’t sure if Mr. Tao could sense it.
“By the way,” Mr. Tao suddenly said, “Do you know Jing Fengyun?” “Jing Fengyun?” Jiang Hao was surprised. “Do you also know him, Mr. Tao?”
“They say he works for you?” Mr. Tao looked at Jiang Hao.
“Sort of.” Jiang Hao nodded.
Jing Fengyun was a decent person who had helped him a lot.
“Then, in the next few days, if you come here again, my people will bring him here,” Mr. Tao said.
Jiang Hao was puzzled, but he didn’t ask more questions.
After a while, Jiang Hao put away his fishing rod and prepared to leave.
“You’re leaving?” Tang Ya, who had been leaning against the pillar, asked. “How about staying for a while? When you’re not talking with Mr. Tao, you almost seem like a normal person.”
Jiang Hao smiled and shook his head. “The fish is taking the bait, and it’s time for me to leave.”
“Huh?” Tang Ya was puzzled.
She particularly disliked people who talked in vague, cryptic ways instead of having conversations like a normal person.
Jiang Hao appraised Mr. Tao before he left.
He was relieved that he hadn’t been discovered.
Then, he turned and left.
“Mr. Tao, what did Smiling San Sheng mean when he said the fish has taken the bait?” asked Tang Ya curiously.
Mr. Tao shook his head. “I don’t know. By the way, next time, don’t be so direct with him.”
“You know either, Mr. Tao? You guys are so complicated” Tang Ya was surprised.
Mr. Tao looked down at the fishing rod and sighed. “It seems it’s time to leave.” “Huh?” Tang Ya was confused.
In the next moment, Mr. Tao raised his fishing rod. In an instant, a pitch-black fish burst out of the water.
“You caught it?” Tang Ya was astonished.
So, Smiling San Shen was talking about this…
He remembered that the Nether Fish couldn’t be detected. Normal cultivators couldn’t see them, so how did he sense it?
“Don’t think too much about it. You won’t understand it anyway. Let’s go and sell the fish.” Mr. Tao put the fishing rod away. Tang Ya, as his guard, was naturally the one who handled such matters.
On the road, Jiang Hao stood by the grass with his hands behind his back.
He appeared to be admiring the scenery, but his mind was in turmoil.
Before appraising Mr. Tao, he had maintained his composure.
But after the appraisal, it was different. The information had shaken him.
[Tao Yuan: The 6th Mr. of the Heavenly Tower. The trace of the Shifting Star Technique is about to dissipate. In three days, his strength will return to its peak. His purpose for coming to the Abyssal Sea is twofold: first, to make certain individuals in the tower lower their guard and to give them time to prepare. Second, he’s here to meet Smiling San Sheng. Originally, he had no intention of talking with you, but he accidentally happened to encounter you. He wants to know your purpose of being here. He doesn’t intend to interfere.]
‘Shifting Star Technique?’ Jiang Hao sighed. ‘Mr. Tao holds a high position and possesses astonishing power. He even has the Shifting Star Technique within him. He came here specifically to meet Smiling San’
This undoubtedly hinted at one thing: this person might be Liu.
‘I wonder if there were any signs of error just now..’
