There was no need to mention Fang Tai’s Space Ring. Other than some of the special products he had brought out from his Universe World, there were only a dozen or so Open Heaven Pills. Yang Kai didn’t even put them in his eyes.
The only thing that caught his attention was a piece of jade plate. It was only the size of a palm and was crystal clear without any impurities. There was also a small fish-like object swimming about inside it.
This was what Fang Tai had taken out for Duan Hai to see, and it was also a token given to him by the Black River World’s Senior. Yang Kai didn’t know what use this token had, so he wanted to throw it away, but after thinking about it for a moment, he carefully put it away, not daring to put it into his Space Ring, instead throwing it into the Mysterious Boundary Bead.
Presumably, with the Mysterious Boundary Bead’s ability to form a world of its own, the Black River World’s Senior would not be able to trace it.
Turning his head to look around, he found that the landscape was completely silent. Sweeping his Divine Sense around, he couldn’t find any trace of Old Xu and didn’t know where he had gone, so there was no need to think about escaping. Since he dared to abandon him here, it was obvious he wasn’t afraid of him escaping.
Sitting down cross-legged, Yang Kai examined his body and soon saw the centipede seal on his Dao Seal. The seal seemed to be alive as it wrapped around the entire Dao Seal. Yang Kai tried to use his strength, but it didn’t hinder him at all, so he only slightly increased his strength to attack the centipede seal. Unexpectedly, the centipede seal immediately tightened around the Dao Seal, and in an instant, Yang Kai felt like he was about to be crushed to pieces. He couldn’t help breaking out in cold sweat and stopping his attempt.
However, this way, he could confirm that this centipede seal was impossible to remove with his current strength. Old Xu was at least a Fourth Order Open Heaven master and had used such a rare artifact to subdue him, so it wasn’t something that could be easily removed. Cursing his bad luck, Yang Kai obediently recovered.
Previously, when the centipede entered his body, he had consumed too much energy. Although his life was not in danger now, he was still very weak.
Three days later, Yang Kai, who was meditating, suddenly noticed something strange. When he opened his eyes, he saw Old Man Xu standing in front of him, quietly staring at him.
Yang Kai quickly stood up, “Old Xu!”
Old Man Xu nodded and lightly said, “You’re quite honest. With your strength, if you wanted to forcefully break free from the Black Gong Centipede’s shackles, I’m afraid you would have already died.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help sweating, but he was too embarrassed to say that he had tried. Feeling helpless, he changed the subject and asked, “Old Xu, may I ask what this Junior can help you with?” After being subdued by Old Xu that day, Old Xu had disappeared. Yang Kai hadn’t had time to ask, but he was certain that Old Xu had spent a lot of time and effort just to make use of him. Moreover, this Old Xu also had a grudge with the Seven Skillful Land, so he must be seeking revenge.
“This king wants you to bring me into the Seven Skillful Land.”
Yang Kai smiled wryly, “Old Xu, this Junior doesn’t even know how to go back now, so how can I bring you into the Seven Skillful Land?” It wasn’t that he couldn’t find the Seven Skillful Land, Ma Liu and Jiang Sheng both had the Seven Skillful Land’s guide, and even if Yang Kai couldn’t find it, Old Xu would definitely know where it was. But now that Ma Liu and Jiang Sheng had died, how could he explain himself if he went back alone?
Old Xu seemed to have seen through his thoughts and said lightly, “Don’t worry, after you return, you’ll only say that you encountered a Roaming Void Beast and those two were accidentally eaten.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai was a bit speechless. How could such a simple reason be used as an excuse? If the Seven Skillful Land found out he was lying, there would be no good outcome. This Old Xu obviously didn’t care about his safety.
“But Old Man Xu, how can this Junior bring you into the Seven Skillful Land?” Yang Kai said with a troubled look on his face, “The Seven Skillful Land’s periphery is covered by many layers of great arrays. This Junior can go back alone, but if I bring someone else with me, I’m afraid I won’t be able to pass through the gates. At that time, I’ll definitely be discovered.”
Old Man Xu casually tossed out an item and Yang Kai caught it. Looking down, he saw that it was the bag he had use to catch Ma Liu and Jiang Sheng.
“This Six Directions Wishful Bag is extremely mysterious. It was only by chance that this king was able to obtain it. If you bring it with you, this king can hide inside and avoid the Seven Skillful Land’s great array.”
Yang Kai gulped down a mouthful of saliva. He had personally experienced the power of this Six Directions Wishful Bag, and even Ma Liu and Jiang Sheng, two First Order Open Heaven Stage masters, were unable to resist it. Obviously, it wasn’t an ordinary object, but now, Old Man Xu had handed this Six Directions Wishful Bag to him and he wanted him to take him in this bag?
Yang Kai’s heart couldn’t help pounding…
Old Man Xu sneered, “Since this king dares to hand this artifact over to you, I naturally don’t fear you using it against this king. If you don’t believe me, you can try.”
Yang Kai quickly replied, “I wouldn’t dare, I wouldn’t dare. Old Xu misunderstands, this Junior just feels that this artifact’s power is unfathomable. This is the first time I’ve come into contact with such a treasure, so I can’t help feeling a little excited. I don’t dare have any malicious intentions towards Old Xu.”
“That’s for the best,” Old Man Xu’s expression was indifferent, “Later, I’ll teach you a set of method to use it, you just need to practice a few of them to coordinate with this king's control.”
“Yes!” Yang Kai replied respectfully, “With the help of this artifact, it shouldn’t be a problem to enter the Seven Skillful Land. But Old Man Xu, what about after entering the Seven Skillful Land? What does this Junior need to do?”
“What can you do?” Old Man Xu sneered disdainfully, “As long as you bring this master into the Seven Skillful Land, you’ll have completed your mission. There’s nothing else for you to do, this master will take care of it!”
Yang Kai’s heart relaxed, but at the same time he was secretly shocked. From what Old Xu said, it seemed that as long as he could enter the Seven Skillful Land, he would have the confidence to take revenge. However, there were many Open Heaven Stage masters in the Seven Skillful Land. Not to mention the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage. HEavenly Monarch, even the seven Protector Venerable had reached the Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage. The other Third Order Open Heaven Stage masters must be there too. He had such confidence in facing so many powerful enemies alone. Just what grade was this Old Xu’s Open Heaven Stage? Could it be a Sixth-Order or even higher?
Only someone with such strength could disregard the entire Seven Skillful Land. It seemed that Ma Liu and Jiang Sheng’s previous speculations about Old Xu’s strength were wrong. He was definitely not just a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage master.
After being on tenterhooks for so long, Yang Kai didn’t know what to say. However, after thinking about it carefully, he really needed to find someone who was particularly loyal to him. Otherwise, if he were to enter the Seven Skillful Land and casually shout, it would ruin Old Man Xu’s plans. The Black Gong Centipede was obviously prepared for this.
At this point, Yang Kai didn’t have any ability to resist, mainly because his life was in the other party’s hands, so he had no choice but to admit defeat and nod his head.
Next, Old Man Xu taught him a set of cultivation techniques and personally helped him refine the Six Directions Wishful Bag. In just half a day, Yang Kai was able to open and close this artifact.
However, this was all he could do. He couldn’t use the Six Directions Wishful Bag to defend himself.
“Alright, let’s go.” Old Man Xu had obviously made all the necessary preparations, only missing a guide. After he finished speaking, without waiting for Yang Kai’s response, he grabbed him and soared into the sky. In mid-air, he summoned his wooden sword, which instantly transformed into a huge sword light that wrapped around the two of them as they flew off.
Without a reference object, Yang Kai couldn’t tell how fast it was, but compared to Ma Liu and Jiang Sheng, Old Xu’s speed was much faster.
After flying for three days, the sword light suddenly stopped and Old Man Xu said, “Boy, you can walk the rest of the way by yourself. With your ability, it will take you another three days to return to the Seven Skillful Land. Once you enter the Seven Skillful Land, find a remote place and release this king.” Saying so, he lightly said, “Don’t try to play any tricks, otherwise you’ll have to bear the consequences.”
“Old Xu, don’t worry, I’ll definitely bring you to the Seven Skillful Land.”
Casting a spell, Yang Kai opened the Six Directions Wishful Bag and Old Man Xu took the initiative to enter. Yang Kai put the bag into his pocket before continuing forward.
Sure enough, just as Old Man Xu had said, after three days, Seven Skillful Land could be seen in the distance, but he didn’t stop and flew straight ahead. As early as half a day ago, Yang Kai had already made himself miserable, his clothes in a mess, and he had even ruthlessly slapped himself several times, causing him to cough up three liters of blood and his aura to weaken.
After another half a day, Yang Kai finally arrived outside the Seven Skillful Land. This was the first time he had returned to the Seven Skillful Land from the outside, so he didn’t know how to enter. He called out a few times, but there was no response from inside, so he was afraid they wouldn’t be able to hear anything. After standing in place and scratching his head for a long time, Yang Kai suddenly thought of a way. Reaching into his Space Ring, he took out his Disciple Token and poured it into the fog in front of him.
This time, he had used the right method. Not long after the token disappeared, the fog in front of him parted to reveal a path in the middle. Yang Kai rushed in and soon arrived in front of a huge door. In front of the door, two disciples wearing seven colored garment stood guard, each of them holding a sword.
After seeing Yang Kai, a look of suspicion appeared on their face, “Which Spiritual Land’s disciple is Junior Brother from? Why does he look so unfamiliar?”
Yang Kai cupped his hands and said, “Reporting to Senior Brother, I am from Fire Spiritual Land and have just been promoted from a servant to an Ordinary Disciple, so the two Senior Brothers have never met me before.”
The two men exchanged a glance before one of them said, “Wait a moment.”
Saying so, he took out a round bead, seemingly communicating with someone.
A moment later, the man looked up at Yang Kai and gently nodded, “Junior Brother’s name is Yang Kai?”
The man stepped aside and handed over Yang Kai’s Disciple Token, “Go in, Senior Brother Du wants you to see him immediately.”
“Thank you, Senior Brother!” Yang Kai took the token and flashed through the door. His vision blurred for a moment before he appeared in the Seven Skillful Land. After sensing that the Six Directions Wishful Bag was still in his pocket, he felt relieved.
However, it wasn’t convenient to release Old Man Xu at this time, so Yang Kai could only put this matter aside and set out towards the Fire Spiritual Land, preparing to see Du Rufeng first.
Thinking about this guy, Yang Kai couldn’t help gnashing his teeth in hatred. Although he knew that Duan Hai was definitely the one making the decision to push him out as a scapegoat, Du Rufeng’s previous display of favor was simply a farce.
