He flew straight towards the main hall where he had first entered the Fire Spiritual Land. Yang Kai estimated that Du Rufeng lived there.
In fact, Du Rufeng really lived there. From afar, Yang Kai saw a familiar figure standing in front of the hall, dressed in white, waiting quietly. Who else could it be but Du Rufeng?
After landing on the ground, Yang Kai cupped his fists and said, “Senior Brother, I’m glad I didn’t disappoint you. That traitor’s head is here!” As he spoke, he took out Fang Tai’s head.
Du Rufeng glanced at it and confirmed that it was Fang Tai’s head. Turning his head slightly, a woman dressed as a maid behind him immediately stepped forward and took the head. Du Rufeng reached out to support Yang Kai, “Junior Brother, you’ve worked hard this time.” Looking suspiciously behind him, he asked, “Why are you alone? Where are Ma Liu and Jiang Sheng? Didn’t they go out with you? Why are they nowhere to be seen?”
Yang Kai’s face was filled with grief, “Senior Brother, you don’t know this, but on this trip, everything went smoothly, but on the way back, we ran into a strange beast, two Senior Brothers… two Senior Brothers unfortunately died, and Junior Brother was unable to avenge them, almost unable to return. It took a lot of effort to find a way back.”
“Strange beasts? What strange beasts?” Du Rufeng frowned.
Yang Kai thought about it seriously for a moment before replying, “I’ve never seen it before, but I heard from my two Senior Brothers it is some kind of Roaming Void Beast!”
“What does it look like?” Du Rufeng asked again.
Yang Kai quickly described what had happened. Fortunately, he had been careful and asked Old Man Xu about the appearance of the Roaming Void Beast, otherwise he wouldn’t have been able to answer at this time. After all, he had only just arrived at the Outer Universe and had never had a chance to see a Roaming Void Beast.
After listening to Yang Kai’s description, the trace of doubt in Du Rufeng’s eyes gradually disappeared. Such an apt description was obviously something he had seen with his own eyes, so he immediately patted Yang Kai’s shoulder and said, “A Roaming Void Beast has no fixed residence and is also very powerful. Encountering danger in this vast and boundless world, Junior Brother’s luck is truly not shallow.”
“Unfortunately, Senior Brother Ma and Senior Brother Jiang…” Yang Kai’s eyes turned red.
Du Rufeng sighed, “That’s their fate, Junior Brother doesn’t need to feel sad. You’ve worked hard this time, go back and rest.”
“Yes!” Yang Kai nodded. After the incident with Old Xu, he wasn’t in the mood to ask about the Manager's matter. Now that he had brought Old Xu into the Seven Skillful Land, who knew how long this Manager thing would last? Old Xu would take revenge in a few days. Although he didn’t know how strong Old Xu was, whether he could succeed or not, he couldn’t stay in the Seven Skillful Land any longer. It was best to find a way to escape as soon as possible.
He didn’t ask, but Du Rufeng took the initiative to say, “In a few days, it will be a month. When i go to the garden again next month, I will inform the Fire Spiritual Land about you.”
“Thank you, Senior Brother!” Yang Kai quickly smiled, “Then Junior Brother will take his leave.”
Du Rufeng nodded.
Yang Kai turned around and left, but after a few steps, Du Rufeng couldn’t help laughing behind him, “Junior Brother, where are you going?”
Was he really going to silence him? Yang Kai turned around and carefully hid his vigilance, “Didn’t Senior Brother tell me to go back and rest for a few days?”
“You’re also wearing a seven colored garment now, so you can be considered a disciple of the Seven Skillful Land. You should first go to the Human Resources Hall to handle some trivial matters and register your name.”
Yang Kai slapped his forehead, “I forgot.”
Du Rufeng turned his head and said, “Xiao He, accompany Junior Brother for a while.”
The maidservant from before replied, “Yes!”
Under the lead of the woman named Xiao He, Yang Kai successfully entered the Human Resources Hall, registered his name, and collected a few new sets of clothes with a happy expression.
Xiao He said, “Sir is really lucky. I’ve served Sir Du for so many years, but this is the first time I’ve seen a servant who only took half a year to become an ordinary disciple.”
Yang Kai cupped his hands towards the direction of the main hall, “It’s all thanks to Senior Brother Du’s guidance.” Pausing for a moment, he asked, “By the way, Miss Xiao He, where should I live now?”
Xiao He pursed her lips and smiled, “You will live wherever Manager Zhou used to lived.”
“It’s still a servants’ house!” Yang Kai snapped his fingers, but the place Zhou Zheng lived in was definitely different from the servants’ house. It was bigger and had a better environment. Yang Kai hadn’t been there yet, so he wasn’t too sure.
“In that case, Sir, please go back and rest. I also need to report back,” Xiao He bowed gracefully. Although she was serving Du Rufeng, she was not a Seven Skillful Land Disciple. Yang Kai estimated that she had been a servant before, so when Du Rufeng saw that she was quite beautiful, he took her in.
“Thank you for your trouble, Young Lady,” Yang Kai said as he stuffed a few Open Heaven Pills into her hands.
Xiao He took it and smiled at him before turning around and flying off, leaving Yang Kai behind to rush towards the servants’ house.
It didn’t take long for them to arrive at the servants’ house. The entire village was empty and all the servants had left the garden, so naturally, there was no one here.
There was no need for him to return to his original residence. Since he had nothing to pack, he went straight to the largest building.
This was the place where Zhou Zheng used to live, but now he had taken advantage of it. After checking his surroundings and making sure there was no one around, Yang Kai stealthily opened all the restrictions and hid inside the secret room to release Old Xu.
“Little brat, you’ve done quite well,” After Old Man Xu appeared, he wasn’t surprised by the environment he was in, as if even if he was kept in the Six Directions Wishful Bag, he would know about Yang Kai’s recent activities. As he spoke, he put away the Six Directions Wishful Bag.
Yang Kai cupped his hands and said, “Old Xu, the task you gave me has been completed, this little brat is powerless to do anything after this. First, I wish Old Xu good luck.”
Old Man Xu let out a strange laugh, “Don’t worry, if I say it’s none of your business, then it’s none of your business. Keep yourself safe.”
Yang Kai said seriously, “This little brat is truly worried about your old age. After all, you’re all alone. Although this little brat hasn’t been here for long, I know that there are many Seven Skillful Land's Mid-Rank Open Heaven Stage masters here. How confident is Old Xu in his revenge?”
“Hmph!” Old Man Xu glared at him, “Since this king dares to come here, I am naturally well prepared.”
“Then I’m relieved.”
Old Man Xu quickly left, and after sending Old Man Xu away, Yang Kai didn’t even have time to close the door before he saw Great General Si Chen walking over from the other side of the village, his golden light dazzling.
He didn’t know if the Great General could smell Yang Kai’s aura, but in any case, he simply walked forward and turned his head to look at him.
Yang Kai felt a little guilty under its gaze, unsure if it had seen anything just now.
The Great General obviously understood human nature, but his personality was quite arrogant and he was usually too lazy to communicate with others. In the end, the Great General was still a pet of the Venerable. If he were to report this matter to the Venerable, the consequences would be unimaginable.
But on second thought, since the Great General had appeared in front of him like this, even if he saw something, he probably wouldn’t complain. Was this stupid chicken really stupid? Yang Kai couldn’t understand.
After welcoming the Great General into the house, Yang Kai didn’t bother with him and instead walked around the house with his hands clasped behind his back, considering his future options. Old Man Xu had come to seek revenge, so the Seven Skillful Land would definitely be in great turmoil. Right now, his best option was to quickly leave this place, lest he be implicated.
But how was he supposed to leave? Without Du Rufeng’s instructions and other legitimate reasons, there was no way he could leave.
Counting the days, he estimated that it would take a few more days before the one-month rest ended. This trip to the outside world had really taken a lot of time.
Alone in the house, Yang Kai simply walked out and flew towards the fruit garden. The Great General followed him without saying a word and continued to lie on his head.
After entering the garden, he first went to see Old Fang.
When they saw each other, Old Fang was shocked and quickly pulled him into his room, his face pale as he said, “Little brat, are you looking to die? Where did you get these clothes from? How dare you wear them so casually, hurry up and take them off.”
Saying so, he began to move his hands.
Yang Kai raised his hand to block it, “What’s there to take off? I’m now a disciple of the Seven Skillful Land, what’s wrong with wearing this?”
Old Fang’s eyes bulged even wider than a cow’s, “You’re suffering from hysteria?” It wasn’t that he didn’t believe it, but he simply couldn’t believe it. Yang Kai had only been here for a short time, so even if he had made great contributions, how could he have become a Seven Skillful Land Disciple?
“I can’t be bothered to explain it to you!” Yang Kai sat down with a gloomy expression.
Old Fang stared at him for a long time before asking, “Did you really become a Seven Skillful Land Disciple?”
“Stop the nonsense, I came in from outside. If it weren’t for my promotion, anyone who dares wear this skin would have been killed by those Seven Skillful Land disciples.”
Old Fang thought about it and agreed. These clothes weren’t something that could be casually worn, and Yang Kai wasn’t stupid enough to take his own life as a joke. What’s more, without the Seven Skillful Land, Yang Kai didn’t have these clothes.
Did he really become a Seven Skillful Land Disciple?
Old Fang’s eyes lit up as he couldn’t conceal his envy, “Brother, you’re amazing…” Saying so, he clapped his hands and cupped his fists, “Sir Yang is truly amazing, young and promising, this old master admires you greatly.”
Yang Kai looked up at him and couldn’t help rolling his eyes, “In addition, I will also take over the position of manager of this garden.”
“Manager!” Old Fang’s eyes nearly popped out, “Are you serious?”
Yang Kai knocked on the table, and Old Fang quickly poured him a cup of tea. Yang Kai took a sip and said lightly, “In a few days, Senior Brother Du will announce this news. I came here to greet you so you can be mentally prepared.”
Old Fang was extremely excited, “Little Brother, you’ve made a meteoric rise, you must take good care of your old brother in the future.”
Yang Kai sighed and didn’t know what to say to him. Moreover, he couldn’t say anything about Old Man Xu, so he simply nodded, “Don’t worry, I’ll definitely take care of you.”
Old Fang shed tears of gratitude.
After leaving Old Fang’s place, he went to visit Die You again. Just like Old Fang, Die You had obviously suffered a great blow and couldn’t believe it. She kept trying to pull off his clothes, causing Yang Kai to flee and let her know in a few days.
