Gongsun Mu had a prominent status in those days, so even the servants around him were not low in strength. After being driven away by Gongsun Mu, he lived in seclusion in the South Territory, married his wife and had children, opened up branches, and created a family of his own.
But this generation has been passed down from generation to generation, and the descendants of the family have mixed aptitudes, and eventually declined.
Until more than a hundred years ago, there was only one heir left in this family, and that heir was saved by Kang Siran when he was hunted down by his enemies. Unfortunately, the injury suffered by that person at that time was too serious, and Kang Siran was totally powerless.
Before his death, the heir gladly informed the family's oral secrets.
This was also the reason why Kang Siran was able to obtain the information of Gongsun Mu Cave Mansion, which was quite bizarre.
But Yang Kai had no doubts after listening it.
As a result, after he had been in contact with Kang Siran for so many days, he felt that Kang Siran was a good person, not a villain, and there was no need to deceive him. Secondly, there are many coincidences in this world, even he himself has experienced it many times.
After thinking for a while, Yang Kai said, "If it is really Gongsun Mu's cave, it would be necessary to explore it. But... why did the Treasurer Kang come to me? Your Chamber of Commerce is full of talented people. There are many people who are more powerful than me? Isn't it better for those people to go there?"
Kang Siran chuckled: "Pill Master Yang has been worrying too much. The headquarters of our Chamber of Commerce is indeed full of talents. There are countless powerful people in the Principle Source Stage. If they are invited to go together, both the chance of success and the safety will be much improved, but if it is really so... How much benefit can I get? Pill Master Yang must know that this is a private action. It is not a business of the Chamber of Commerce. If it is really known to the strong at the headquarters, the good things in there, i will not even be able to drink the soup, and the old man has been planning to find someone with the same strength as me to go with me. Please understand that Pill Master Yang."
Yang Kai nodded slightly, and said: "I understand the concern of the Treasurer Kang."
"It's a blessing for the old man since Pill Maste Yang can be considerate. I don't know what Pill Master Yang meant..."
Yang Kai smiled and said, "Since Gongsun Mu, the alchemist Grandmaster, is involved, of course I am also very excited."
Kang Siran was overjoyed, and said: "That's the case. But the old man still has one thing to ask for."
"Treasurer Kang, please speak!"
Kang Siran looked down and said in a condensed voice: "If there is a Principle Source Pill remaining in the cave, the old man needs to take one first!"
"This is no problem." Yang Kai didn't even think about it. Readily agreed.
Kang Siran was startled. It seemed that Yang Kai agreed so quickly. A trace of gratitude appeared on the surface: "Many thanks Pill Master Yang. The old man knows his aptitude is dull, if there is no Principle Source Pill to support him. I will never be able to be promoted to the Principle Source Stage in my entire life, but how rare is Principle Source Pill? This time, the Five Colors Treasure Tower is open, and the old man has no fate with the Principle Source Fruit. If it were not for this, the old man would not rush to explore the Cave Mansion. But Pill Master Yang can rest assured that regardless of whether there is a Principle Source Pill in it, all things related to Pill Refining, All of them belong to Pill Master Yang. As for other things, you and I will discuss the distribution at that time."
"Okay." Yang Kai nodded, "When shall we leave."
"Tentatively one month later. One month later, old man will be waiting for Pill Master Yang at the Spirit Pill Workshop. Old Man also has to make some preparations in this month. In addition, there is also an auction in the city. Old Man wants to join in the fun, To see if I can gain something, I wonder if Pill Master Yang is interested in going together?" Kang Siran asked.
"An auction is going to be held in the city?" Yang Kai was stunned.
"Yes." Kang Siran chuckled, and said: "This time, the martial artist in the Maplewoods City got a lot of good things from the Five Colors Treasure Tower, so the City Lord wanted to hold an auction to let everyone exchange what they needed. Maybe in this auction, the old man can still see Principle Source Fruit, Pill Master Yang is now also in the 3rd-order Void King Realm, I'm afraid it is time to prepare Principle Source Pill in advance, right?"
"It should be. When and where will this auction start?" Yang Kai asked.
After half an hour, Yang Kai walked out of the Spirit Pill Workshop.
Regarding the auction, Yang Kai didn't say whether he will go or not, but only told Kang Siran that if he had time, he would go and join in the fun. Kang Siran naturally had no opinion.
After leaving Spirit Pill Workshop, he thought for a while, and instead of returning to his cave, he headed straight out of the city.
After a short while, after leaving Maplewoods City, Yang Kai recognized the direction and flew towards the North.
About thirty miles away from Maplewoods City, there is a manor-like existence. There are many houses inside the manor, covering a vast area, with small bridges and flowing water, and the environment is quiet and peaceful.
Yang Kai land from the sky alone, his spiritual mind sweeping across part of the manor, muttering: "It should be here."
The reason why he came here was naturally because he had to fulfill his previous agreement with the guy named Zhang Gaoxuan in the Five Colors Treasure Tower. The Zhang family is also a somewhat famous family in Maplewoods City, so he only inquired a little and knew where the Zhang family was.
The Zhang family’s foundation was not placed inside Maplewoods City, but outside of Maplewoods City. After all, even if Maplewoods City has a lot of land. It would cost a lot of money to house a large family, but it is different to build the house outside. Although the world's spiritual energy is not too strong, it can be used by a small family.
Yang Kai glanced at it, and he knew that someone from the Zhang family should have a little understanding of the formation method, and some simple formations were arranged in this manor to gather the world's spiritual energy.
A Principle Source Fruit was obtained from Zhang Gaoxuan, the head of Zhang Family, and Yang Kai had to come here to take a look and bring Zhang Gaoxuan's other relics and instructions.
There was not much time before, so it has been delayed until today.
When he arrived at the front door, Yang Kai was about to shout, but he didn't expect two streams of light was suddenly shot from the inside of the front door.
After the two streams of light, two figures also rushed out, each hand pinched magic arts, their eyes were red, as if there was some hatred of Yang Kai, and they looked like they were quick to kill.
Yang Kai was stunned.
However, he hasn't paid attention to the attack of the other party. After all, the cultivation level of these two people is really not high. One is in the 2nd-order Void Return Stage and the other is 1st-order Void Return Stage. How much threat can it cause him even with a full blow?
So he stood there without moving, bent a finger, and flicked forward.
With two crisp sounds, the two streams of light hitting his face suddenly shattered.
Seeing this situation, the two people looked dumbfounded, but soon they rushed up with grim faces, as if looking for death, and did not know what secret technique was used, each of them opened their mouths and expelled a mouthful of blood essence, and the aura skyrocketed.
Yang Kai's brows suddenly wrinkled, and before the two of them offered any Artifacts, his domain was released leisurely.
In a short time, the two of them were as if they were being held down by a mountain, their bodies stiff and unable to move, but everyone's expressions were extremely angry, and they looked at Yang Kai's gaze almost spitting fire.
"This is the Zhang Family?" Yang Kai asked indifferently while maintaining the power of the Domain, suppressing the two.
Both of them are men who look like they are about 30 years old. One is fat and the other is thin. Hearing this, the fatter man snorted coldly: "Why ask knowingly? If you want to kill just do it, don't speak nonsense!"
Although the thin man didn't speak, the stern look that came out of his eyes clearly meant the same.
"What happened to the Zhang family?" Yang Kai was not a fool either. Seeing this, he couldn't help but frown.
"You are really long-winded, since you are here to work for the Lu family, why bother to be pretentious." The fat martial artist snorted coldly, with a look of contempt.
The thin martial artist continued with a sneer: "Lu Baichuan's old man is not polite, and the person who is invited is naturally all the same, so why should it be strange for the third brother."
The fat martial artist laughed and said, "Yes, it's the third brother that is dull."
After speaking, he spit at Yang Kai fiercely.
Yang Kai sighed, "I am afraid that the two of you have some misunderstandings. I don't know what Lu Baichuan or the Lu family you are talking about. I only fought back because you suddenly attacked."
"You don't know the old thief Lu Baichuan, why come to my Zhang family?"
At this moment, a full-hearted voice suddenly came from inside the manor. Then, an old woman with silver hair, with a tall wooden staff in her hand, was supported by a young girl and walked step by step to the outside.
And behind the old woman, she was followed by many other people.
The old woman is not young, her face is full of wrinkles, there are some brown old spots, her eyes are thunderous, staring at Yang Kai.
When Yang Kai swept away his Spiritual Mind, he immediately understood that this old woman had the cultivation level of 1st-order Void King Realm, and she should be recently hurt by the hands of people in the recent period, so the Saint Yuan in the body was a bit disordered.
But what made him even more puzzled was that the people who followed the old woman were all women, middle-aged women, young women, young girls, and even several young children.
The only male present was the fat and thin martial artist who attacked him before.
It seems that all the men in this family are dead except for the fat and thin man.
With a wave of his hand, Yang Kai dispersed his Domain and released two fat and thin men.
The two men also knew their gap. They seemed to realize that there was a huge gap between their strength and Yang Kai's strength, so they didn't get entangled anymore. Instead, they came to the old woman's side as soon as they flickered.
"Yang Kai, I have seen the Old Lady, dare to ask if this is the Zhang family?" Yang Kai clasped his fists and saluted.
"Yes, this is the Zhang family." The old woman replied in a deep voice with a stick in her hand.
"It's the Zhang family." Yang Kai smiled slightly and pondered: "Old lady, do you have any misunderstandings about me? How come I was attacked as soon as I came here?"
"Misunderstanding?" The old woman sneered, "Is it a misunderstanding? It depends on why you came here to do things. You said you didn't know the old thief Lu Baichuan?"
Yang Kai shook his head and said: "I have never heard of it."
