Chapter 1660: No Need To Care
Just as Jin Zhengyin arrived at the door of the quiet room, he heard Sima Yin Long’s voice, “Is it Little Jin? Come in.” Jin Zhengyin complied and pushed the door open before going in. Although the door was made of bronze and looked heavy, it easily opened after a simple push. Moreover, it didn’t make any noise.
Jin Zhengyin has been to Sima Yin Long’s quiet room multiple times. But every time he came, he was always surprised. He couldn’t help but marvel at the simplicity of the quiet room.
Sima Yin Long’s quiet room was very simple. Although the room was very big, there was nothing inside. Besides the praying mat in the middle, there was nothing else.
Most importantly, the room was windowless. The only source of light inside the room was the big luminous pearl in the middle of the ceiling.
Jin Zhengyin estimated that as long as the door of the quiet room was closed, the luminous pearl would only bring out a faint light.
This was also something Jin Zhengyin admired about Sima Yin Long. He tried having the same quiet room before. However, he couldn’t bear the darkness and silence. Although it would greatly benefit his spiritual force, his restlessness caused him to stop. In the end, he could only give up on the idea. This also made him aware that Sima Yin Long’s current position wasn’t just due to his innate talent. Sima Yin Long also put in effort to gain his strength.
Jin Zhengyin approached Sima Yin Long and then said, “Senior Brother, I’ve already made my investigation. Zhao Hai did indeed enter the Outer Sect. However, he’s in the trash dump Ignored Valley. Zhang Feng spread word that he appreciates Zhao Hai so he sent him to the Ignored Valley to temper his mind. But from what I can see, he just threw Zhao Hai into the Ignored Valley.”
Sima Yin Long knitted his brows and said, “Zhao Hai has offended Zhang Feng?”
Jin Zhengyin nodded and said, “Yes. I heard that when Zhao Hai won, Zhang Feng lost a lot. So he threw Zhao Hai to the Ignored Valley.”
Sima Yin Long knit his brows as he said, “Looking at Zhao Hai’s battle, he’s not weak. Even if Zhang Feng lost a lot, he can gain it back in Zhao Hai’s next battles. Moreover, Zhang Feng is fond of getting talents. Why would he send Zhao Hai to the Ignored Valley.”
Jin Zhengyin bowed and said, “I think so too. Zhang Feng is well known to favor talents. If Zhao Hai was really a talent, then Zhang Feng would have already brought him to his side. Putting him in the Ignored Valley, this only explains one thing. Zhang Feng wasn’t optimistic about Zhao Hai.”
Sima Yin Long paused, then he nodded in agreement as he said, “Zhang Feng’s eyes are the real deal. So if Zhao Hai isn’t worth paying attention to, then so be it. Alright, there’s no need to think about Zhao Hai anymore. You go back and rest.” Jin Zhengyin’s eyes flashed with glee. He bowed and said, “Yes, then I’ll ask to be excused.” After he said that, Jin Zhengyin slowly walked back and closed the door.
Looking at Jin Zhengyin’s back, Sima Yin Long couldn’t help but mutter, “Zhao Hai has no potential? In any case, he’s just a kid. If he’s really talented, it’s not too late to get him in the future.” Then he closed his eyes. The quiet room returned to its eerily quiet state.
Seeing Jin Zhengyin leave, Elder Hu let out a long breath. A person walked in from outside. Seeing this, Elder Hu quickly said, “Brother Zhang, you came.”
The person who arrived was Zhang Hao. Zhang Hao nodded and said, “I have to thank Senior Brother Hu this time. If it weren’t for Senior Brother Hu, then Jin Zhengyin might have some suspicions.”
Elder Hu smiled and said, “Junior Brother is too polite. All of this is for First Senior Brother Zhang. Junior Brother, will Jin Zhengyin really believe everything?”
Zhang Hao smiled faintly and said, “I really don’t know. This is nothing more than First Senior Brother’s orders. Right, you also went to the Ignored Valley, how is Zhao Hai doing?”
Elder Hu stared, then he replied, “He’s doing fine. Probably just managing the trash. Moreover, he’s doing a proper job. Jin Zhengyin would have no suspicions.”
Zhang Hao nodded and said, “I’ll go take a look at Zhao Hai.” After he said that, he went to the transmission formation for the Ignored Valley.
Looking at Zhang Hao’s vanishing figure, Elder Hu couldn’t help but mutter, “I’m afraid Zhao Hai is smarter than everyone thinks. I should be on good terms with him. Perhaps he can bring benefits to my clan.” Elder Hu took a deep breath before he returned to the Handyman Hall.
When Zhang Hao arrived at the Ignored Valley, he found Zhao Hai standing on the door of his residence. When he saw Zhang Hao coming, Zhao Hai immediately gave a salute and said, “Brother Zhang, why are you here?”
Zhang Hao looked at Zhao Hai’s appearance and then smiled as he asked, “I was a bit worried, so I came to see. How are you doing?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’m doing alright. Brother Zhang, come in and take a seat.” Zhang Hao nodded and then entered Zhao Hai’s cave residence. The two sat on transforming clouds before Zhang Hao looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, although the matter of this time is over, I can’t guarantee that there won’t be anything like it in the future. First Senior Brother Zhang is a big tree and countless eyes are directed at him. It was impossible for these people to miss your assignment here. In the whole Black Tiger Gang, this is the least conspicuous place. You need to take care.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Senior Brother is too polite. There’s no need to tell me these things. I understand. To be honest, this place is very good. Being here, I don’t lack time to practice. This is all benefit with no fault. Right Brother Zhang, let me give this to you. These are the pills I have synthesized recently. I don’t know what they are, so I’ll hand them all to you.” After he said that, Zhao Hai handed over a jade bottle.
Zhang Hao received the jade bottle and then popped open its stopper. Looking inside, his expression couldn’t help but change as he exclaimed, “Dancing Dragon Pill?”
Zhao Hai looked confused at Zhang Hao as he said, “Brother Zhang, is this pill valuable?”
Zhang Hao looked at Zhao Hai, then he smiled bitterly as he said, “This pill is very precious. One of its ingredients is the inner dan of a level three wind spirit snake. Because of this, it’s called the Dancing Dragon Pill. It’s very precious especially for cultivators below Core Formation. Taking this pill will not only help you cultivate, it would also increase your speed. It is a low-level beast pill.”
Zhao Hai looked at Zhang Hao and asked, “Beast pill? Are they different from ordinary pills?”
Zhang Hao nodded and said, “Beast pills are naturally different from ordinary pills. Beasts are divided into six levels corresponding to the six stages in the Great World of Cultivation. These beasts wouldn’t be able to transform into a humanoid figure before level 4. It must be known that beasts all have their own talents and techniques. Some beasts have strong defenses while some have fast speed. After some time, beast pills began appearing in the Great World of Cultivation.”
Zhang Hao paused for a moment before he continued, “Besides requiring beast dans, another special point of beast pills was that it kept the ability of the beast used in making it. Although it wasn’t like the original, cultivators still treasure these abilities. Take the Dancing Dragon Pill for example, because the wind spirit snake was a level three beast, it can only be useful for Core Formation Cultivators. In addition to increasing your cultivation, the pill also increased its user’s speed, just like the wind spirit snake’s natural ability. Although the speed gained couldn’t be equal to a wind spirit snake, it was already a good benefit to cultivators. Most importantly, the pill’s effect can be stacked. Although the succeeding effects would be lessened, the increments were still very good.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I see. I didn’t expect the Great World of Cultivation to have such a mysterious pill.”
Zhang Hao nodded, then he gave the pill to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, take this pill. It’s very precious.”
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “Take it. I have such a huge mountain of treasure, are you afraid that I won’t have one? You can have this.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Zhang Hao also thought that it was correct. With Zhao Hai guarding the Ignored Valley, what treasures wouldn’t he have? Zhang Hao was no longer polite as he kept the jade bottle. Then he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, Elder Hu is one of us now. If you want anything, you can look for him and have him take care of it. If its important, go look for me directly. I will immediately go to First Senior Brother.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Alright. Then I will have to trouble Brother Zhang.”
Zhang Hao shook his head and said, “There’s no trouble. I’m even feeling sorry that you have to stay in this place. But this is important for the First Senior Brother, it can only be like this.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “ Brother can rest assured. I’m fine in this place. Brother, I think you should go back first and report what happened here to First Senior Brother. Don’t let anyone know that you came to me.”
Zhang Hao nodded and said, “Alright, then I’ll go back first. Remember, if you need anything important, go look for me.” Zhao Hai nodded. Then Zhang Hao went out and used the transmission formation.
Looking at Zhang Hao, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but faintly smile as he said, “It looks like the battles within the Black Tiger Gang are intense. This is interesting. Let’s see how Zhang Feng plans to use me.” After he said that, he returned to his cave residence and then returned to the Space.
