Chapter 1376 – Dividends
This wasn’t the first time that Huang Daoran used the jade talisman. While Zhao Hai was in seclusion, Huang Daoran would press it every one or two months. He wants to see if Zhao Hai was out or not. It was just that Zhao Hai was in seclusion before that he didn’t respond every time Huang Doaran pressed the button. But now was different. Zhao Hai wanted to go to the Cultivation Realm. Huang Daoran’s call just made it more convenient for him to go.
If Huang Daoran didn’t press the jade pendant and Zhao Hai went to the Cultivation Realm, then Huang Daoran might think that Zhao Hai was monitoring him through the jade talisman. This would cause a conflict between them. This wasn’t what Zhao Hai wanted to happen.
Although Huang Daoaran has become his master in a weird scenario, Zhao Hai still felt that Huang Daoran was a good person. Zhao Hai thought that it was a good idea to maintain a good relationship with Huang Daoran. At least, when necessary, Huang Daoran could become his partner in battle.
Additionally, Zhao Hai regards sentiments importantly. Although Huang Doaran was his enemy, he was his Master right now. And ever since he became Huang Daoran’s disciple, he has helped Zhao Hai a lot. Zhao Hai was very grateful for this. Therefore, he didn’t want Huang Daoran to have any misunderstandings.
Zhao Hai didn’t hesitate as he appeared at Huang Daoran’s location. Huang Daoran was still in the Elder’s Valley of Flying Phoenix Mountains. This was the place with the most abundant spiritual qi. All Elders of the Zhen Family stay here for cultivation.
Huang Daoran didn’t expect Zhao Hai to appear today. He was just pressing the jade talisman like usual to see if ZhaoHai was out of seclusion.
After pressing the jade talisman, Huang Daoran put it down and prepared to set out. But before he was able to leave, a white light suddenly flashed in front of him. Then Zhao Hai appeared.
When Zhao Hai appeared, he immediately bowed to Huang Daoran and said, “Zhao Hai has seen Master.” Huang Daoran looked at Zhao Hai and then he smiled faintly and said, “Good, you’re done?” Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Yes, Master. This disciple has completed his seclusion.”
Huang Daoran nodded, then he waved his hand and said, “Come, sit.” Zhao Hai sat down accordingly. Huang Daoran didn’t immediately speak to Zhao Hai. Instead he took out a jade sword message and sent it out. Then Huang Daoran looked at Zhao Hai and gave out a satisfied nod as he said, “You’ve improved a lot. Little Hai, what technique did you cultivate in your seclusion?”
Zhao Hai didn’t plan to hide the truth from Huang Daoran, so she said, “Replying to Master. I closed up to practice some Buddhist Techniques. Although I have been using the Cultivation Realm’s methods, I’m lacking techniques using my flying swords. After all, I haven’t studied a systematic method like before. I accidentally discovered that the Crescent Moon Spade has some Buddhist Techniques. This disciple decided to practice them and their benefits aren’t that bad.”
Huang Daoran knit his brows and said, “It’s not impossible to learn Buddhist Techniques. But it’s not easy to learn them without proper guidance. Master will give you a flying sword technique. It should be useful for you.” Zhao Hai didn’t reject it. Although Huang Daoran’s technique might not be better compared to the Stellar Sword Technique, he couldn’t just reject Huang Daoran’s good intentions.
Huang Daoran waved his hand as he took out a jade slop. Huang Daoran threw the jade slip towards Zhao Hai and said, “This is a sword formation technique that I obtained. However, this technique needs a complete flying sword set. Master doesn’t have a sword set, but your Liquid Silver can transform. This technique should suit you. Take it.”
Zhao Hai bowed to Huang Daoran and then received the jade slip. Then at this time, someone’s voice was heard outside, “Niece Zhen Ling is here to see Uncle.”
Huang Daoran immediately responded, “Come in.” Zhen Ling entered and then gave Huang Daoran a bow. After Huang Daoran waved his hand, Zhao Hai stood up and said, “Little Brother has seen Senior Sister.”
Zhen Ling also politely replied, “Junior Brother is too polite. Please have a seat.” Zhao Hai nodded and then sat down. Huang Daoran looked at the two and said, “Little Hai, Little Ling has something to discuss with you about business. You two should talk about it.”
Zhao Hai nodded, he turned his head to Zhen Ling and said, “Senior Sister, what do you want to talk about? Is the spirit wine lacking? There’s no need to worry, as soon as I return, I’ll immediately send some spirit wine to that warehouse.”
Zhen ling smiled and said, “Junior Brother, there’s enough spirit wine. I want to talk about your dividends. Junior Brother, your dividends have been kept here for five years. The dividends in the past five years aren’t small. When do you plan to take it?”
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile when he heard this. Then he said, “So it’s that. To be honest, I forgot about it. Actually, Senior Sister doesn’t have to give it to me. I still have a lot of crystal stones in hand. Instead, you can replace those crystal stones with ores and plants like our previous transaction. Similarly, I don’t care how much there is, as long as it’s something I haven’t seen before. You can use all my dividends for this, just make sure that they are rare.”
Zhen Ling and Huang Daoran were puzzled about Zhao Hai’s approach. They don’t understand why he was doing this. Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Senior Sister, just keep my money here. Consider it as my payment for the favor. And if there’s not enough, just ask me for more.”
Zhen Ling knit her brows and said, “Junior Brother, why do you collect these things? Are they useful to you?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Of course they’re useful. I want as many rare ores and plants as possible.”
Seeing that Zhao Hai was intent on collecting rare ores and plants, Zhen Ling nodded and said, “Alright, I’ll take care of it. Do you have any other requests?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “I don’t have any other requests. If Senior Sister can do this, it will help me a lot. Also, spirit wine production has increased recently. I can give you more spirit wine from now on. I’ll send 100 million catties of spirit wine later. If the situation is good, we may be able to increase the output of wine even further.”
Zhen ling stared, then she nodded and said, “Alright. But Junior Brother should know that too much supply of spirit wine would make its price go down. We need to control how much we sell outside.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Junior Brother is aware of that. Senior Sister doesn’t have to worry. You make the decisions, I certainly wouldn’t interfere.”
Zhen Ling nodded, “Alright. Since Junior Brother trusts me, then I can’t treat you unfairly. You can rest assured that I’ll get your requests as soon as possible.” Zhao Hai nodded and didn’t say anything more.
Huang Daoran didn’t make any noise during the entire conversation. Seeing that Zhao Hai and Zhen Ling were done talking, Huang Daoran turned his head to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, if you have nothing else to do, stay here for some time. Two days later, Master will bring you to the Profound Clear Sect. You have been in cooperation with them for some time, you should go see them.”
Zhao Hai started, he didn’t expect Huang Daoran to take the initiative to take him to the Profound Clear Sect. He immediately nodded and said, “Alright, Master. But Master, I have to go back first and deliver Senior Sister’s spirit wine.”
Huang Daoran waved his hand and said, “Go, return quickly.” Zheo Hai nodded before he completely vanished. When Zhao Hai left, Zhen Ling turned to Huang Daoran and said, “Uncle Huang, is it okay to bring Little Hai to the Profound Clear Sect?”
Huang Daoran looked at Zhen Ling and then smiled faintly as he said, “Little Ling, don’t worry. Nothing will happen.” When Zhen Ling heard this, she nodded and didn’t say anything. She just bowed to Huang Daoran before asking to be excused.
After Zhao Hai returned to the Space, he immediately prepared the spirit wine to be delivered to Zhen Ling’s warehouse. These spirit wine have already been placed into jade bottles and placed inside spatial bags. Zhao Hai has a lot of spatial bags in hand, so using them this way isn’t a problem.
When the spirit wine were delivered, Zhao Hai returned to Huang Daoaran’s cave mansion. Huang Daoran gave Zhao Hai a quiet room to cultivate in. After Zhao Hai entered his room, he took out the jade slip that Huang Daoran gave him. Just like what Huang Daoran said, it was a sword formation technique. It’s quite a common sword formation in the Cultivation Realm and it needed a sword artifact set to be used. It was also quite strong.
Naturally, this technique couldn’t compare to the Stellar Sword Technique and the Buddhist Techniques. However, Zhao Hai still studied it and decided to use it later on an enemy. He would first use the technique that Huang Daoran gave him and transition it to his main sword technique. If things weren’t going well, then he would use the Buddhist Techniques.
Since the Buddhist Techniques use faith power, they were all very powerful. Therefore, Zhao Hai decided to use them last. The Stellar Sword Technique was also very powerful. Zhao Hai believed that most of his opponents would fall to this technique.
Zhao Hai made the Buddhist Techniques into his last resort because he was afraid of facing people who could identify them. If the others see that he has techniques that use faith power, then things might get troublesome. It must be known that anything related to faith power is enough to cause practitioners to go crazy. Whether they be a Transcending Tribulation Expert, or even an Immortal, they would make a move if it had something to do with faith power. Therefore, Zhao Hai decided to use the Buddhist Techniques as little as possible.
