While I sat at the entrance of the tent, I gazed up at the guard tower, appearing as lost as the nearby crowds. But in reality, I was scrutinizing the defense around the base of the tower.

I asked with worry, “Dàgē, there’s such heavy security around that tower. Are you really sure you’d have been able to leave a clue there?”
Jiang Xiaotian frowned, thought for a little, then replied, “Xiao Sha can. He is very good at subterfuge, so he should be able to avoid notice. But for your safety’s sake, he really should have picked somewhere else. Hm, it’s hard to say.”
“Then that’s fine.” I said with a nod, “Dàgē knows my capabilities. He’ll definitely leave a message there.”
Jiang Xiaotian frowned as he nodded and remarked, “But the security here is too strong. Something feels off.”
