The man pondered for a moment. "Now that you mention it, I do have an impression of him. He doesn't seem to be in our zone."
Gu Xintang was overjoyed. "Think harder and tell us everything you know. Remember, don't lie."
"You'll be rewarded generously if you lead us to him." Jiang Chen nodded.
The man noticed the hostile glares being cast at him and instantly knew that there would be enormous repercussions if he said any more. Plenty were willing to do anything for a chance to get out of the Sable Cells. And now, a glimmer of hope was within reach. If envious glances could kill, he'd be dead at least a dozen times by now. He'd also be dead within an hour if he remained here any longer.
The fighter mused deeply and glanced at Gu Xintang. "Captain Gu, I need you to make me a promise."
"What is it?" Gu Xintang was unhappy that the man was trying to haggle.
"If the information I provide is useful, promise me that you'll grant my freedom even if the person you seek isn't found. If my information is useless, you still have to transfer me to another zone." The man knew that he'd angered the masses here. Even if he couldn't leave the Sable Cells, he would at least require a zone transfer.
Tens of thousands of prisoners were held in the cells. Its population was that of a city. Naturally, the place was segregated into multiple zones. There was a different ruler in each of the zones. The Sable Cells was said to be a lawless place, but everyone abided by a set of rules that no outsider would ever know about. If it truly were a place without rules, the occupants would all be dead within a month. It was impossible for tens of thousands to coexist in a place like this.
The fact that the population maintained in the tens of thousands meant that there was actually an ecosystem down here. New prisoners were constantly coming in to replace the dead. This cycle was essential for the Sable Cells' existence.
Gu Xintang glanced at Jiang Chen and nodded without hesitation. "I can give you what you ask, provided that your information is useful."
The shrewd man was elated. "Deal! Follow me. Let's talk elsewhere."
Jiang Chen exchanged glances with Gu Xintang. They nodded and followed the man to a slightly more secluded corner to talk. "Captain Gu, I've heard about the man which you seek."
"Oh? Where is he?" Gu Xintang was paying undivided attention.
"I cannot tell you where he is for now." The shrewd man was quite sharp. "I need you to make me a promise."
"Didn't I do that earlier?" Gu Xintang frowned.
"Nonono. A verbal promise is useless. What am I to do if you break your promise?" The shrewd man had survived in this prison for a very long time. He wasn't the kind to trust others easily.
"What do you want us to do then?" Gu Xintang was very annoyed by his haggling.
"Very simple. Just solemnly swear to the heavens and earth that you'll fulfill your end of the deal if my information is useful. I guarantee that you'll be very satisfied with what I can offer. Moreover, the information that I have is very obscure. Not many know about it in this zone."
Jiang Chen activated his God's Eyes and stared at the shrewd man as though he was trying to peer into the very depths of the man's soul. The cultivator quivered when he met Jiang Chen's gaze, but he peered back without any fear. He was scared, but he was equally as determined. He made it obvious that he'd not keel under pressure.
