Chapter 688: The Light of the Righteous Path

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

For five consecutive days, mining proceeded as usual.

Jiang Hao was surprised.

He had a five-day Concealment Talisman, but he had only used it for three days.

He had been betting that they wouldn’t come looking for him for three days.

It seemed to be the case that both the Heavenly Saint Sect and the others didn’t put in much effort to find him.

It made sense when he thought about it. A Golden Core Realm cultivator wasn’t worth their full attention.

After the sixth day, Jiang Hao used the Concealment Talisman again. This time, he used it for five days.

This meant he could mine in peace for another five days, which was good.

He had made good progress. He had obtained thirteen blue bubbles.

If he continued like this, he would be able to advance in a little over a month. He didn’t want to leave.

He wanted to continue mining until the sect stopped the fighting and he could return.

He hoped the fighting would last longer.

Once the fighting ceased, the sect would look for him. The Law Enforcement Hall was efficient, and as a person on their suspect list, he would be found and taken back sooner or later.

He continued mining until early August.

Jiang Hao noticed that the people around him were looking at him differently. They looked at him in shock and disbelief.

He didn’t pay much attention to it.

What others thought of him was none of his concern, as long as they didn’t suspect his identity.

But others didn’t think the same way. A female miner couldn’t help but steal glances at Jiang Hao.

Her hands were bloody from the cuts, but she was used to it. What really surprised her was the supervisor’s behavior.

They hadn’t been punished, and they had passed ten days without any incident.

At that moment, she saw the supervisor suddenly make a move. He swung his hand and threw a longsword, which flew directly toward her.

A powerful aura erupted.

Once it made contact, it would undoubtedly kill her.

How could someone like him change? The punishment was just much later than before.


As the woman closed her eyes and waited for death, a metallic sound echoed behind her.

She instinctively turned to see a strange stone monster pinned to the wall.

The monster was just two steps away from her. If not for the sword, she would be dead…

“Stay alert,” Jiang Hao said.

In an instant, the entire mine was in an uproar, especially the woman.

She looked at Jiang Hao’s back. She was now a hundred percent sure that this person wasn’t the same supervisor as before.

“Pass me my sword,” Jiang Hao said.

The woman didn’t dare to hesitate and immediately wiped the blood and dirt from her hands. She pulled out the sword and handed it to Jiang Hao. He took the sword and glanced at her hands. “You can rest today.”

“What?” The woman was shocked.

“Your physical health is too weak, and your speed is slow. Rest up, and then

continue mining,” Jiang Hao said calmly.

The woman looked at the man before her. She had never felt like this before. It was as if she was being treated like a… person.

Driven by an inexplicable impulse, she said, “You must be the light of the righteous path.”

When she realized what she had said, she lowered her head and retreated.

Jiang Hao didn’t mind.

‘The light of the righteous path?’

He was just an inner sect disciple of a demonic sect.

He couldn’t be the light of any righteous path.

Tomorrow would be the last day. The Concealment Talisman would disappear, and he would have to rely on his fate for the next five days.

If nobody came to find him in those five days, he could continue using the Concealment Talisman.

He still had five days left.

However, on this day, the miner from before found him.

His name was Feng Wei. Jiang Hao had already learned about his background and realized why he seemed familiar. He had checked it before just to see what was going on.

[Feng Wei: Miner at the Blackheaven Sect mining site. An inner disciple of the Heavenly Note Sect. He left the sect a few years ago to explore due to your favor regarding a pill. After three years of struggle, he was captured by the Blackheaven Sect and has been in the mines ever since. He’s looking for you because of his expertise in Beast Taming Technique, and he has discovered a hidden cave. He thinks there might be opportunities inside.]

While he didn’t know exactly what kind of relationship this person shared with the real supervisor, this new development indicated something.

There had been a new discovery, and as a miner, Feng Wei couldn’t act on his own. He needed someone to accompany him.

Apart from that, Jiang Hao couldn’t help but feel that the supervisor had reached the Foundation Establishment Realm in someone else’s mining site.

If he were to return to the Heavenly Note Sect now, he should be in a much better position.

At least the mining site there was better than this one.

“The light inside has stabilized, and the best chance will be in three days,” Feng Wei whispered.

“Tomorrow night,” Jiang Hao said.

He would mine for one more day, and then it would be evening, which would be the right time to go and check.

If there were any problems, he could return immediately. After all, they would come looking for him at any time.

“Alright.” Feng Wei nodded.

Jiang Hao looked at him and wanted to ask how he had achieved the Foundation Establishment Realm. In the end, he didn’t ask.

Perhaps he would never realize that the senior who had given him a pill out of kindness had already reached the Golden Core Realm.

Just seventeen or eighteen years had passed since then.

That night, Jiang Hao took out all the storage treasures he had obtained.

During this period, he hadn’t had the time to check them one by one.

He needed to take a look now.

There were a total of nine storage treasures.

The first three only contained some trivial items. They did have some spirit stones, but the total only added up to three thousand.

It was meager, and there weren’t even a few ordinary magical items.

He had no idea where the Blood Shadow Sect’s people had spent the spirit stones.

‘l’ne next twe were better. ‘l’ney contained a total ot tmrty-elgnt tnousand spirit stones, along with some pills and magical items.

The total value was probably around fifty thousand.

This was what was unspent. If the people hadn’t spent the money, it would have been even more.

“The person from the Sunset Immortal Sect has a great background,” Jiang Hao said with envy.

The last one contained two hundred spirit stones, which was still a good harvest.

In total, the spirit stones were 41,265.

In addition to what he had on him, he now had around forty-six thousand spirit stones.

‘It’s somewhat unexpected. I’ve become wealthy again. The spirit beast will receive more gifts.’

After packing up his belongings, Jiang Hao closed his eyes to rest. He waited for a new day to arrive.

The following night, Jiang Hao watched the mine with some reluctance. He didn’t know if he could continue mining after tonight. He was still some distance away from reaching the next stage of his cultivation realm.

In the dead of night, he and Feng Wei walked through the mine.

Feng Wei explained many things to him. He had discovered the location, and only he could enter it. It wasn’t easy for others to enter, even if they found it.

So, there was no need to worry. For now, only the two of them were aware of it.

Jiang Hao glanced at Feng Wei. He knew that he suspected he might not be the real supervisor. He didn’t care about that. He was just passing through here temporarily.

He didn’t want to cause any major trouble, nor did he want to make friends with anyone.

Jiang Hao felt that there was a change in the surroundings as if something was altering his perception.

“It’s not a natural formation. It’s influenced from the inside,” Jiang Hao said.

Feng Wei looked at the man beside him in surprise. Then, he nodded. “Yes, I suspect there’s an extraordinary formation inside.”

“Have you studied it?” Jiang Hao was surprised.

“You might not believe it, senior, but I was stuck at the ninth stage of the

Lifeblood Refinement Realm for a long time before I reached the Foundation Establishment Realm. To not appear so useless, I studied formations. Later, I

encountered some documents related to formations and gained some knowledge. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to find this place,” Feng Wei said with a bitter smile.

Jiang Hao nodded. “Those days must have been tough.”

Feng Wei was surprised. For a moment, he began to understand why the miners had privately referred to this person as “the light of the righteous path.”

This was the most righteous person they had ever seen..
