Chapter 1358 – Rich Person
Huang Daoran looked at Zhen Ling for some time before he laughed and said, “Alright, well said. You have been angry with those fellows all these years. If you’re that confident, then I’ll support you in leaving and going on your own. I think there’s no problem with the Profound Clear Sect. If your Uncle Feng speaks, the Profound Clear Sect wouldn’t be able to do anything. Little Hai is also not a problem. He’ll only cooperate with you and not the Pink Clouds Pavilion. But you need to prepare things well.”
When Zhen Ling heard what Huang Daoran said, she couldn’t help but look at Zhao Hai. She was somewhat confused. Zhao Hai and Huang Daoran had a grudge before, to the point that they wanted to kill each other. But after becoming Master and Disciple, their relationship immediately became good? What’s happening?
Zhao Hai smiled faintly towards Zhen Ling and said, “Senior Sister can rest assured. Just like Master said, I won’t do business with other people, so you don’t have to worry. We can do business as soon as everything has been set up.”
Zhen Ling didn’t expect Zhao Hai to speak of such good terms. She nodded and said, “Alright, then I’ll prepare everything as soon as possible. When the time comes, I’ll call Junior Brother.”
Zhao Hai nodded. Then he looked at Huang Daoran and said, “Master, if there’s nothing else, I’ll have to ask to be excused. I still have some things I need to take care of.”
Huang Daoran nodded. But suddenly, he said, “Right, Little Hai. Do you have things you need? If you do, just tell the Little Girl. She’s still the Pavilion Master of the Pink Clouds Pavilion, so you might as well. Once she goes independent, it would be difficult for her to get some good things.”
Zhao Hai stared for a moment. Then he smiled faintly and said, “If Master says so, then I’ll have to be impolite. I want some medicinal plants, preferably precious ones. I also need ores, the more precious and rare they are, the better. I don’t need a lot of them, just a little piece. The same is also true for the medicinal plants. I don’t need a lot, just one of each is fine.”
Zhen Ling gawked, then she nodded and said, “Alright, that wouldn’t be a problem. I’ll give them to you the next time we meet.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Then I’ll have to thank Senior Sister. Right, Senior Sister, this Junior Brother has plenty of crystal stones in hand. If you need them, I can hand them over to you.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Zhen Ling’s eyes couldn’t help but turn bright. Then she nodded and said, “Then I’ll have to be impolite to Junior Brother. If you can, I’d want ten million crystal stones.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and then waved his hand as he took out a spatial bag. She handed the bag over to Zhen Ling and said, “Senior Sister, take a look if the things in this bag is enough. If it isn’t, then just tell me.”
Zhen Ling received the spatial bag that Zhao Hai handed over and then took a look inside. Much to her surprise, the crystal stones inside the bag weren’t the small ones that she was used to. Instead, these were big pieces of crystal stones. And from their quality, they seem to be high grade crystal stones. This was out of Zhen Ling’s expectations.
Although crystal stones were used as a currency in the Cultivation Realm, this mostly referred to the most ordinary low grade crystals. These crystals were no larger than walnuts. However, the value of crystal stones weren’t judged by their size. A basketball sized low grade crystal sn’t as valuable as a walnut-sized high grade crystal. If crystal stones were the same size, a high grade crystal would be equivalent to 100 medium grade crystals or 10 thousand low grade crystals. However, no person in the Cultivation realm were willing to exchange their high grade crystals for medium or low grade crystals.
Low grade crystal stones were single-use items. After using it once, the crystal would break and be unusable. Medium grade crystal stones were also consumables. Generally, medium grade crystals could be recharged ten times before it breaks. And the energy that can be stored inside couldn’t be much. As for high grade crystals, they could be repeatedly reused. One could also leave the high grade crystal alone and it would absorb energy from the surroundings on its own.
Because of these characteristics, nobody was willing to exchange their high grade crystal with the lower graded ones. In the past, Zhao Hai had been using medium grade crystals. As for high grade crystals, he rarely used them.
But after coming to the Machine Field and becoming exposed to a higher density of spiritual qi, the quality of crystal stones that the Space produced has increased. Right now, the majority of the crystals that the Space churns out were high grade crystals. There were very few medium grade crystals among them. Therefore, it can be said that Zhao Hai was filthy rich. Even in the Cultivation Realm, he could be seen as a wealthy person.
Zhen Ling raised his head to look at Zhao Hai. Then she suddenly smiled and said, “Junior Brother is actually so rich. Good, then Senior Sister will be impolite and accept these. Although I’m the Pavilion Master and can move materials at will, each product needed to be accounted for. Senior Sister can sell to you at a low price, I can’t give them to you. Or else it would ruin my plan. This is why I asked you for some money. From what I can understand, Junior Brother wants different types of plants. You aren’t particular about quantity?”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Right. The more types the better. I don’t care if there’s only one of each type. As long as there’s one.”
Zhen Ling nodded, “Alright, I understand. Junior Brother can rest assured, I’ll handle everything. Uncle Huang, I’ll leave first. When I’m ready, I’ll let you know. Uncle, I’ll leave the Profound Clear Sect to you. The sooner you get in touch with them, the better.”
Huang Daoran nodded and said, “Go. You don’t have to worry about the Profound Clear Sect. Your Uncle Feng should almost be back. Little Hai, I’ll deal with this matter. Just prepare the wine to be delivered. Right, you have to change the containers of those wines. They need to be inside jade bottles.”
Zhao Hai was stunned for a moment. Then he smiled and said, “Thank you for the reminder, Master. Then I’ll go back first.” Huang Daoran waved his hand. Zhao Hai bowed to the two before disappearing. After that, Zhen Ling bowed to Huang Daoran and left.
Seeing the two juniors leaving, Huang Daoran let out a profound smile. Then he took out a jade sword message and sent Feng Baiming a message. He didn’t expect things to develop to this degree. Zhen Ling actually decided to leave the Pink Clouds Pavilion. But this was also good. It has been a long time since he felt disgusted with those folks from the Pavilion.
When Zhao Hai returned to the Space, he sat on the sofa and let out a long breath. Then he gave out a wide smile as he turned to Laura and said, “Laura, did you notice how similar Zhen Ling’s personality is to yours? Hahaha. Interesting, it seems like we’ve found an interesting business partner.”
Laura smiled and said, “Right, it’s also good for us to cooperate with Zhen Ling rather than the Pink Clouds Pavilion. If we cooperate with the Pink Clouds Pavilion, we would be placed in an awkward manner if ever Zhen Ling gets kicked from her position. Now that Zhen Ling is planning to go independent, I believe she would achieve great results quickly with us, Master Huang, and the Profound Clear Sect supporting her.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “This is indeed good for us. Moreover, I made use of our crystal stones in order to trade for things that we badly need. This cooperation is already showing its benefits.”
Laura nodded. Then she looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Brother Hai, you’re now the Supreme Commander of the Lock Mountain Range. Shouldn’t you also go to the Six Realms Battlefield and collect materials? There are a lot of good treasures there.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “It’s because I’m a Supreme Commander that I cannot go around the Six Realms Battlefield. I’m now similar to Feng Baiming and the others. I can only defend the Machine Field’s domain. Otherwise, it’ll cause misunderstandings.”
Laura nodded. Then she sighed and said, “Sometimes, having a high status is really inconvenient. Now, we have to act more low-key. As long as Brother Hai reaches Transcending Tribulation, we wouldn’t need to be afraid of them.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and didn’t say anything. Just like Huang Daoran said, he lacked accumulation. Once he accumulates enough, he would soar high.
Zhao Hai stayed inside the Space the following days. He could no longer roam the Six Realms Battlefield nor could he go to the soft gold mine. If someone finds him there, then the entire World of Cultivation wouldn’t let him off. He had been in the limelight for too long, so he needed to act low in the meantime.
However, Zhao Hai wasn’t idle. The transmission formation towards the Pirate Paradise has been constructed. It wasn’t a large transmission formation and could only accommodate 100 people at a time. However, this was good. As long as it was operational.
On the other hand, Margaret as well as Barlett’s group have been preparing to meet the migrants in Yalei 2.
The overall construction of Yalei 2’s capital city has been completed. People could move in at any time. But even so, some work still needs to be done once the migration starts. Everyone had wages to deal with as well as stores that needed to be opened. At this time, the ones operating the stores were the Undead.
The situation in the Pirate Paradise has been going well. After Zhao Hai left, Louis and the others immediately dealt with the goods that had been brought. Since they were the leaders, it was easy to command the other people. Louis and the others were pirates who killed people and looted their goods. They were not pushovers. Therefore, troublemakers in the Cross Sword Pirate Group had long since been taken care of.
After removing the unstable factors, Louis and the others prepared to migrate to Yalei 2. This wasn’t an easy task. Although a lot of people wanted to become commoners in Yalei 2, keeping the migration a secret was very hard.
Naturally, Louis and the others knew that their migration could never be hidden from the outside. However, at the very least, they wanted to keep it a secret for as long as possible. Otherwise, people might cause trouble to them. A lot of people from the six realms were staring at the Cross Sword Pirate Group. With how strong the pirate group was, it was no wonder that people were concerned about their movements.
