Duan Guan looked at the talismans on Jiang Hao’s stall. “You have the Heavenly Sword Talismans too?”
“Yes.” Jiang Hao nodded.
“Are there any other talismans?” Duan Guan asked.
“For now, I don’t have any at the same level.” Jiang Hao shook his head.
He hadn’t learned them yet. However, it wouldn’t be difficult for him. He had learned from Mi Lingyue for a long time, and these talismans wouldn’t pose a challenge for him.
“You’re wasting your talent, ” Duan Guan said coldly. “You think you have some talent, but you don’t focus on honing your skills. Sooner or later, you will find it difficult to progress in talisman-making. By then, you won’t even be able to set up a stall.”
Jiang Hao remained calm. He wanted to see what more this senior would say. However, Duan Guan had already left.
He took away all the Talismans and left behind six hundred spirit stones.
Senior Brother Duan Guan was indeed rarely wealthy. Every time he met Jiang Hao, he would buy everything that was in his stall.
Later, he went to look at a blade.
It was long, jet black, and had a slight curve. It could cut through anything effortlessly.
It was made of a material that could corrode flesh and blood.
“How much is this blade?” Jiang Hao liked it very much.
“Seven thousand spirit stones,” said the stall owner. He was a middle-aged man. “The material is exceptional. If it weren’t for the fact that the forging could have been better, it would cost more.”
Jiang Hao nodded in agreement. It was a decent blade but was only at the Golden Core Realm.
He felt that seven thousand for it was too expensive.
After bargaining for half a day, they settled at 6,700 spirit stones.
Jiang Hao sighed. He still had a long way to go in the Golden Core Realm, and it wouldn’t hurt to have a good weapon. Judging by its hardness, it could rival even treasures at a higher realm.
The stall owner warned him that the blade could be wiped with cloth but shouldn’t be touched with bare hands.
Jiang Hao didn’t mind. This level of power wouldn’t affect him.
After that, he bought some tea. He deliberately bought a more expensive variety of it.
He chose the Ancient Spirit Tea, which cost him five thousand spirit stones.
Now, he only had 6,876 spirit stones left.
He felt that spirit stones weren’t easy to come by and was reluctant to spend more.
He also realized that he had run out of the Silver Moon Petals. He bought two packs, which cost him two thousand spirit stones.
With that, he returned to his house.
He had less than five thousand spirit stones left, and he needed to earn more as soon as possible.
The days of having over ten thousand spirit stones seemed so far away. He couldn’t believe he had actually had that many spirit stones before.
“I thought Senior Sister Ming Yi would come to visit, but it seems I won’t see her for a while.”
The only thing that remained was a visit from Senior Sister Ming Yi.
But she didn’t come.
He could only put it aside for now.
“Now, I only have to wait for Hong Yuye.”
Before she arrived, he wanted to improve his cultivation realm.
The outside world would likely be in turmoil. The disciples from Clear Sky
School were coming, as were those from the Mountain Sea Sword Sect. The Grand Earth Emperor was about to appear.”
It was sure to cause a storm.
The Heavenly Note Sect was remote enough not to be affected.
That was exactly what Jiang Hao wanted. At this moment, the stone tablet suddenly vibrated.
He looked at it. It wasn’t a call for gathering. Instead, it was information about Yan Shang from the Sunset Immortal Sect.
‘I should just accept it. I can look at the details slowly.’
Jiang Hao didn’t expect the message to reveal her true identity but having this information was useful.
However, the content of the message surprised him.
The first sentence was: “One of the avatars of Feng Hua.”
‘It seems that this information is more detailed than the previous one.’ Jiang Hao couldn’t help but be amazed.
When investigating Feng Hua earlier, they hadn’t found this particular avatar.
Looking at the information, Jiang Hao was quite surprised.
The information revealed that Yan Shang was perfect.
As one of the top disciples of Sunset Immortal Sect, she was exceptionally talented. She was already in the middle stage of the Return to Void Realm at just two hundred years old. She was considered a remarkable genius.
Furthermore, she was friendly and kept a low profile. The elders and seniors adored and admired her.
There was nothing negative about her in the information.
She had never harmed anyone, and she never had conflicts with others. Her favorite things were provided generously by the sect. However, she obtained everything through her own abilities and was admired by everyone.
Even though Jiang Hao hadn’t met her in person, there were legends about her throughout the sect.
Some even boldly claimed that Yan Shang might compete for the position of the next Sect Master.
The information was limited, but it mentioned Feng Hua’s concern for this particular avatar.
It wasn’t as detailed as the information on Shangguan Qingsu. They probably were from different sources.
There were mentions of protective spells around her, both within and outside the sect. There were also some life-saving treasures at her disposal.
“These details are sufficient. However, her cultivation realm is higher than I expected. It’s… troublesome.”
If it were convenient, he’d prefer to visit her himself, but it wasn’t possible for him right now.
A regular middle-stage Return to Void Realm cultivator might be able to hide, but this was Feng Hua he was talking about. She wasn’t an ordinary Return to Void Realm cultivator.
It was uncertain whether he could get close to her.
‘I can only ask Gui for help in delivering a message.’
He had an idea. It might not be possible for him to visit the sect and pass on a message, but there were others in the southern region who could do it.
The problem now was to come up with a way to ask for Gui’s help.
Gui was still after Yin Zichen. If he could find him for her, perhaps he could trade with her.
‘But getting in touch with the Mountain Sea Sword Sect isn’t that easy…’
He could only wait for a proper opportunity.
Perhaps there was a way to contact them.
In the following days, Jiang Hao returned to his usual calm, but it seemed that the Grand Competition within the sect had reopened.
Many people were vying for opportunities. News also quickly spread that the Blackheaven Sect was about to come across something big, and the sect wanted a piece of the pie.
This surprised Jiang Hao, but he didn’t pay it much mind. He didn’t need any opportunities.
One day, Jiang Hao received a communication talisman to meet his master. There was something his master wanted to ask him.
Shortly after, Jiang Hao reached Ku Wu Chang’s courtyard.
“This time, there is a fixed list of people for the visit to the Blackheaven Sect, and your name is on it. However, it’s difficult to take you out of the sect because of your status in the Law Enforcement Hall.”
Ku Wu Chang looked at Jiang Hao. “If you want to go, I can help you figure something out. I’ll be accompanying you on the journey anyway.”
Jiang Hao lowered his head and didn’t know how to answer for a moment.
He didn’t want to go. It was too dangerous. There were people who wanted to kill him, and more importantly, the appearance of the Grand Earth Emperor would undoubtedly bring trouble.
A slight slip could lead to a disaster.
“You don’t want to go?” Ku Wu Chang asked.
Jiang Hao nodded. “I’m sorry to disappoint you, Master.”
“It’s alright.” Ku Wu Chang shook his head and didn’t say anything.
Jiang Hao left.
He looked back at his master’s house and sighed.
His master was very kind to him, but going outside was dangerous for him.
No one within the sect harmed him, and he could peacefully manage the Spirit Herb Garden. That was enough for him.
In ten or a hundred years, all troubles would disappear. People and their hatred toward him would fade away.
Even if a hundred years wasn’t enough, two hundred years would do it. The people who hated him would eventually let go of their grudge..
