Yang Kai spent a few days enjoying himself, enjoying the blue sea and blue sky. With the beautiful scenery accompanying him, he almost forgot about his home. During the day, he and Zhu Qing would travel around the mountains and rivers, enjoying the scenery of Dragon Island. At night, they would naturally travel through the 'clouds and rain', enjoying themselves.
Zhu Qing also knew that such a life would not last long, so if nothing unexpected happened, she would be inseparable from Yang Kai.
But such days were destined not to last.
Ten days later, this leisure was finally broken.
On Crescent Island, Yang Kai was lying on the beach, his head resting on his hands as he looked up at the clouds. Beside him, Qiong Qi was lying on his back, his eyes closed as he enjoyed this carefree life. The two of them seemed to have become an eternal painting, the tides rising and falling, and the sea water splashing everywhere.
“Old Qiong, this Young Lord has decided that I will go to Dragon Temple,” Yang Kai suddenly said.
Qian Qi’s eyes were half closed as he pretended to sleep, but when he heard this, he suddenly opened his eyes and straightened his upper body to look towards Yang Kai, as if to confirm if he had heard wrong.
“I probably won’t be able to take Qing’er away, but I’ll definitely have to make a trip to Dragon Temple. The Dragon Clan’s Secret Technique is extremely powerful, so since I’m here, how can I miss it so easily? What do you think?”
Qiong Qi could only shake his head like a rattle drum, “No, no.”
“Oh? Why not?” Yang Kai turned to look at him.
Qiong Qi said, “This is Dragon Island, and Dragon Palace Temple is the most sacred and secret place of the Dragon Race. No one is allowed to trespass here, so I’m afraid we won’t be able to return alive.”
Yang Kai sneered, “It’s not like I haven’t been to the Dragon Temple before. Didn’t Wu Kuang also break in last time? He’s still living freely in the Ancestral Domain.”
“Wu Kuang is Wu Kuang, you are you.” Qiong Qi still had a look of disapproval on his face as he pondered for a moment before saying, “If you insist on going, this old master will leave Dragon Island first.”
Yang Kai glanced at him, “Old Qiong, you’re quite loyal.”
Qiong Qi replied, “This old master only wants to preserve his usefulness so that he can avenge you in the future.”
“Tsk…” Yang Kai sneered, “Good idea, it’s been hard on you.”
Qiong Qi pretended not to understand and continued, “In any case, this old master will advise Young Lord to give up on this idea. If possible, it would be best if the Dragon Race agreed to let you enter the Dragon Temple.”
Yang Kai angrily said, “If the Dragon Race can agree, this Young Lord doesn’t need to barge in. That cheap slut Fu Zhun clearly wants to take advantage of me, but she actually used Qing’er’s weakness to threaten me. How despicable! Sooner or later she’ll know how powerful this Young Lord is.”
Slut? Qiong Qi couldn’t help swallowing his saliva. He actually called Fu Zhun a Slut?
It was only at this moment that he realized that his new Young Lord’s courage was extraordinary.
“En? Someone’s coming!” Qiong Qi’s expression changed as he looked towards a certain direction.
Yang Kai also noticed this and glanced over, immediately grinning. A streak of red light flew towards Zhu Qing’s palace, but after sensing Yang Kai’s Divine Sense aura, it suddenly changed direction and flew over.
In a flash, a figure appeared in the sky and looked down at them.
Lying still, Yang Kai raised his hand and greeted, “Hello little brother-in-law.”
Zhu Lie’s brow wrinkled as he stared at this careless and casual man, thinking that his big sister was really blind. How could she have fallen for such a man? He asked lightly, “Why are you lying here?”
“Sunbathing, what else can I do?” Yang Kai replied matter-of-factly, waving his hand, “If you have something to say, why are you standing so high?”
Zhu Lie’s mouth twitched, but he still obediently flew down. When he landed next to Yang Kai, he turned to look at Qiong Qi and asked in surprise, “You really accepted Winged Tiger as your mount?”
Yang Kai hadn’t been on Dragon Island for long, but it wasn’t short either. There were only a few Dragon Race cultivators on the island, so if there was even the slightest disturbance, it would quickly spread. Now, all of the Dragon Race on Dragon Island knew that he had been driven out of Snow Island by the Second Elder and had almost been killed after provoking the Second Elder. Moreover, he had a Winged Tiger mount.
Zhu Lie had been cultivating a Secret Technique for the past few days, so when he heard the news, he hurried over to take a look.
Looking at Winged Tiger in surprise, he asked, “You’re also a member of the Holy Spirit, don’t you feel ashamed to act so lowly?”
Qiong Qi blinked, but before he could say anything, Yang Kai stood up and glared at Zhu Lie, “Little Brother-in-law, what do you mean by this? What kind of enmity do you have with me? Why are you trying to instigate my mount?”
Zhu Lie frowned and said, “I didn’t mean that, I just thought… Sigh, forget it, everyone has their own ambitions.” Shaking his head, he wore a look of disappointment, as if Qiong Qi was willing to become Yang Kai’s mount to shame all the Holy Spirits.
Turning to Yang Kai, he asked, “If you’re not accompanying Zhu Qing, what are you doing here alone?”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “Zhu Qing is currently entertaining three Dragon Ladies, how could I dare to go?”
On Dragon Island, there were only seven Dragon Ladies. Excluding Zhu Qing, Fu Zhun, and Fu Xuan, there were four remaining, but Fu Ling was still guarding Dragon Island’s entrance and couldn’t leave without permission, so there were only three Dragon Ladies left. One of them was Zhu Family’s Dragon Race while the other two were Fu Family’s Dragon Race.
Over the past few days, these three Dragon Ladies had been running towards Zhu Qing’s place quite frequently, arriving almost as soon as the sun rose and only leaving after dark. Their intentions were obvious.
Yang Kai had only met them once on the first day and was immediately dismissed by Zhu Qing.
Speaking of which, the impression Yang Kai had of the three Dragon Ladies wasn’t bad. They didn’t have any obvious enticing actions like Fu Ling did, and when they looked at Yang Kai, they even seemed a bit embarrassed and shy. Facing Zhu Qing, they were filled with guilt and unease.
Yang Kai suspected that it was the Great Elder who had sent the three of them here. If not for this, even if he had a great use for them, with the pride of the Dragon Race, he wouldn’t have done so.
The main reason why Fu Ling was like that was because she had interacted with Yang Kai the last time, so they weren’t strangers.
Listening to Yang Kai’s explanation, Zhu Lie naturally understood, and the corners of his eyes couldn’t help twitching as he stared at Yang Kai with a deep hatred.
If even the Little Brother-in-Law was like this, the other male Dragon Race members were even more so. At this moment, all of them wanted nothing more than to rip off Yang Kai’s skin and eat his flesh. If it weren’t for the fact that Yang Kai’s Golden Holy Dragon Origin was suppressing them too much, they wouldn’t have been a match for him.
After a moment of silence, Zhu Lie asked, “I heard Second Elder gave you a condition?”
Yang Kai asked curiously, “You also know about this?”
Zhu Lie said, “Dragon Island is only so big, and the Dragon Race only has so few people. What happened here quickly spread. Did Second Elder ask you to compensate for the losses you caused to the Dragon Race last time?”
Yang Kai nodded, “That’s true.”
Zhu Lie said, “Then why don’t you think of a way? Second Elder rarely relents, so if you can fulfill her request, you can naturally take Zhu Qing away from Dragon Island. Do you want Zhu Qing to separate from you in the future?”
Yang Kai sneered, “Why should I pay for Dragon Island’s losses? It’s none of my business!”
Zhu Lie spat out three words, “Dragon Blood Flower!”
Yang Kai’s face twitched, “Did Great Elder call you here?”
Zhu Lie’s expression flickered as he said, “You don’t need to worry about who called me here. In my opinion, you have the ability to fulfill Second Elder’s conditions.”
“You think I’m capable?” Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “Do you know how many Dragon Blood Flowers I plucked?”
“Two supreme-grade, thirty high-grade, two hundred mid-grade, and nearly a thousand low-grade!”
“You know quite a lot,” Yang Kai was a bit surprised. These numbers weren’t much different from what he had calculated before, so he nodded and asked, “Then do you know how many Dragon Blood Flowers I have left?”
Zhu Lie shook his head.
Yang Kai said, “Supreme-grade, High-grade, Mid-grade, all of them are gone, only the Low-grade ones are left. Even if I really return the remaining Dragon Blood Flower, where will I find the remaining gaps? I can’t possibly make the Dragon Blood Flower, right?”
Zhu Lie said neither quickly nor slowly, “The Dragon Blood Flower’s cultivation is mainly nourished by the Dragon Blood. The purer the Dragon Blood, the higher the quality of the Dragon Blood Flower’s growth. The Dragon Blood Flowers on Dragon Island were basically watered with the Dragon Descendant’s blood as the main ingredient. Not only is their quality not good, but their growth period is also long. However, if you really want to, you can use your own blood to cultivate the Dragon Blood Flower. Your bloodline… may have some miraculous effects on the Dragon Blood Flower.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai sneered and instinctively wanted to refute, but after thinking about it carefully, it seemed… quite reasonable. Rubbing his chin, he pondered for a long time before asking, “Do you really think… I can cultivate those high-grade, mid-grade Dragon Blood Flowers?”
Zhu Lie replied, “How would we know if we don’t try? Second Elder has already said that if you can fulfill her request, take Zhu Qing away and enter the Dragon Palace Temple, she will have nothing to say.”
As soon as these words came out, an image appeared in Yang Kai’s mind: He had walked into the Dragon Palace Temple openly, but the slut Fu Zhun had a helpless look on her face.
He couldn’t help feeling pleased, “Does she keep her word?”
Zhu Lie sighed, “Second Elder has always been true to her word.”
Yang Kai’s interest was piqued as he paced back and forth on the beach, his expression constantly changing as he hesitated. After a long time, he clapped his hands and said, “Good, I’ll do it. I don’t believe I can’t cultivate the Dragon Blood Flower!”
Zhu Lie said, “Then I wish you success.”
Yang Kai grinned, “Alright, alright, go back and tell the Great Elder that I will compensate him for the loss of Dragon Blood Flower. Tell him to relax because I am Dragon Island’s son-in-law.”
The corner of Zhu Lie’s mouth twitched, “I was just saying it casually, it has nothing to do with Great Elder.”
Yang Kai shot him a sidelong glance, “You coming here to tell me all this, is it not because of Great Elder’s instructions?”
Zhu Lie still wanted to explain, but in the end, he nodded and said, “Good.”
The Dragon Blood Flower had been stolen by Yang Kai, so for the next thousand years, the Dragon Clan’s bloodline on Dragon Island would not be able to make any progress with the help of the Dragon Blood Flower. There were only two ways to solve this problem, one was to cultivate enough Dragon Blood Flowers, and the other was to help the Dragon Ladies quickly improve their bloodline.
In the end, Zhu Lie still hoped that Yang Kai would make the first choice, so he accepted the task assigned by the Great Elder and came to persuade Yang Kai.
