Cultivating In Secret Beside A Demoness - Chapter 377: 378: Compensates Whom?
Chapter 378: Compensates Whom?
After seeing Xu Bai and Fang Jin off, the Heavenly Note Sect had no other pressing matters to attend to
The Heavenly Saint Sect and the overseas forces still posed some troubles, but it was unlikely they would retaliate soon.
The Heavenly Saint Sect was very far away. They would need time if they were thinking of attacking the Heavenly Note Sect. That would give the Heavenly Note Sect plenty of time to recover.
Furthermore, the overseas forces had also suffered significant losses.
Though they suspected the Heavenly Note Sect was involved, it was just speculation. They wouldn’t attack rashly. After all, nobody was certain whether it was a trap.
If they fell into the trap of another sect without getting detailed information, they might be doomed.
So, the overseas forces were not likely to act recklessly.
They had their own objectives, after all.
Jiang Hao believed that these individuals weren’t foolish, and they definitely wouldn’t make rash decisions.
They weren’t as single-minded as the members of the Heavenly Saint Sect. Those people were fanatical. They were still after the “secret” Yan Hua had supposedly conveyed to him.
‘Hm… the secret of the mine…
Jiang Hao, who was sitting in the courtyard reading a book, suddenly thought of something.
Could Hua Le be a spy in the mines?
‘Unlikely. Xuanyuan Tai was imprisoned in the Lawless Tower. People from the mines had no access to anyone inside the Lawless Tower. Then… who told him about the Heavenly Fragrance Dao Flower?’
Jiang Hao was certain that Xuanyuan Tai might have not Imown for sure that he was the one who planted the Heavenly Fragrance Dao Flower.
‘However, Xuanyuan Tai had been attacking the mine and was caught by Manlong. Those in the mines and from the Flowing Waterfall are all suspects.
There is also a possibility that the jailers might have been involved.’
There were those three possibilities, but he was sure about any of them. It might be difficult to find Hua Le.
“Master, the sun is up. It’s time to go to the Spiritual Herb Garden,” said the beast.
Jiang Hao looked at the beast, stood up, and prepared to head to the Spirit Herb Garden.
He would continue reading when he returned.
He was trying to understand everything he had learned from Mi Lingyue.
His Clear and Pure Heart ability was still recovering, and he could still use it.
So, he made great progress.
In a few days, he would be able to resume his learning. He needed to be fast.
Mi Lingyue wouldn’t be here much longer.
The Bright Moon Sect had already taken Gu Qing away.
The people from overseas were probably on their way too.
Though Mi Lingyue was remarkable, she couldn’t be used by the Heavenly Note Sect. When people came to get her, she would be allowed to leave.
Everyone knew that Mi Lingyue was a person of high importance, and someone would come to get her.
Such a talented person wouldn’t be abandoned. The Heavenly Note Sect wouldn’t be willing to give her up either.
If she chose to stav, there was a high Drobabilitv that the Heavenlv Note Sect
Would establish another branch through her.
Jiang Hao wasn’t just guessing. He had heard as much from seniors at the Lawless Tower.
As his visits to Lawless Tower became more frequent, he had gotten acquainted with quite a few seniors and juniors working there. This might be of some help in the future.
“Where are you so eager today?” Jiang Hao asked.
“Everyone Imows that I, Lord Beast, have the makings of a great demon. Sometimes people make an offering to me, ” said the spirit beast as it stuttered proudly.
“Can you speak in human language?” Jiang Hao asked.
“Cheng Chou said he brought some delicious jerky for me and Xiao Li,” said the beast regretfully. “I like to eat rich people the most. They are tender and soft.” “You like eating human flesh?” Jiang Hao asked.
“Of course not. I am Lord Beast. I don’t like meat. Everyone knows that! I’m a spirit beast. How can I eat meat?”
Jiang Hao chuckled and then headed toward the Spirit Herb Garden. Xiao Li was already waiting for them. .
“Senior Brother Jiang, did you get robbed?” she asked as she ran up to him.
Jiang Hao looked at her. “Uh… no.”
Xiao Li let out a sigh of relief and then sniffed him.
“What do you mean?” Jiang Hao was puzzled.
“I smell the scent of a Senior Sister on you. I thought I was dreaming all this time. But then, I suddenly remembered. So, it wasn’t a dream. I wonder when she will come to find me again.”
Just as Jiang Hao was about to ask her, Cheng Chou arrived.
The spirit beast and Xiao Li ran over to him.
There were currently four Senior Sisters who had contact with him: Miao Tinglian, Ming Yi, Leng Tian, and Zhou Chan.
Miao Tinglian and Mu Qi were partners. Miao Tinglian used to be from the Heavenly Saint Sect, but she harbored no ill intentions toward him. They got along fine.
Ming Yi was also a Saintess of the Heavenly Saint Sect, but she was much more dangerous to him than Miao Tinglian.
Leng Tian was entirely focused on searching for things outside. With her cultivation realm, she wasn’t much of a threat.
Zhou Chan had a kind heart. She had no ill intentions toward him at all.
If he had to guess which senior might be trying to get close to Xiao Li, the most likely person was Ming Yi.
‘Hm… I should have the spirit beast keep an eye on her, just in case.’ As for others, he didn’t pay much attention to them.
Xiao Li could take care of herself. There wasn’t much danger.
In the morning, Jiang Hao selected some spirit herbs. The Outer Sect’s Spirit Herb Garden was finally being used.
Led by the Candlelight Pill Pavilion, they began planting the herbs.
The Spirit Herb Garden was most beneficial to the Candlelight Pill Pavilion, and the other branches didn’t contest it.
As long as they weren’t in the last place, it was okay.
He would need three batches of spirit herbs to be able to contribute.
In the first batch, Jiang Hao used some of his own spirit herbs to send to the garden.
When they were retrieved, they would be considered as cultivated by the Outer Sect’s Spirit Herb Garden and could be sold.
He didn’t send everything out for now, as he intended to gradually send them
In three batches.
After Cheng Chou and his group took the spirit herbs away, Jiang Hao checked the situation in the Spirit Herb Garden.
He would then return in the evening to learn about talismans.
However, not long after that, an outer sect disciple rushed back a Divine Movement Talisman.
He seemed quite flustered. “Senior Brother Jiang, something has happened.”
Jiang Hao was surprised.
He was one of the outer sect disciples responsible for delivering the spirit herbs.
‘Has something happened to Cheng Chou?’
“There’s a place we can only get to by flying on our swords. Senior Brother
Cheng was heading that way when a Senior Sister knocked him off. His life is hanging by a thread. I came here immediately!”
Jiang Hao frowned. He used the Demonic Sound Thousand Miles Technique and disappeared from the spot.
A moment later, they arrived in front of a cliff.
He saw the group from the Cliff of Broken Hearts.
Cheng Chou confronted someone while nursing his injuries.
“Senior Sister, aren’t you being a little unreasonable? Clearly, it was you who bumped into me and damaged my spirit herbs. And now you demand compensation from me?”
“If you hadn’t blocked my path, my clothes wouldn’t have been ruined. I’m only asking you to compensate for the damage. That’s already very generous.” “But what about my spirit herbs?”
“You weren’t careful with your spirit herbs. What does that have to do with me?
Alright, I won’t ask for compensation. I guess you’re just unlucky.”
Jiang Hao looked at the damaged spirit herbs. Then, he turned to Cheng Chou.
Fortunately, his injuries didn’t look very severe.
Finally, he turned to the Senior Sister..
