“You still have the strength to curse!” The manservant chuckled as he stood up and threw his Space Ring onto the counter, signaling for the accountant to open the room before asking Yang Kai, “Who injured you? How did you get injured so badly?”
“A crazy woman!” Yang Kai grit his teeth.
“Brat, who are you scolding?” At the door, a figure walked in, her face slightly pale and blood dripping from the corner of her mouth.
“Proprietress?” The manservant was startled, “What happened to you?”
He was well aware of the strength of the Proprietress. In the surrounding few great regions, who could hurt her? Moreover, looking at the way she was looking at Yang Kai… he felt that something was wrong.
Yang Kai straightened his neck, “I’ll curse whoever hits me!” Originally, he had arrived safely, but in the end, he had been injured and had even wasted a Golden Plume Feather, so who could he complain to?
The Proprietress was also enraged, and a terrifying murderous aura surged from her tender body as she walked towards Yang Kai step by step, smiling as she said, “This little brat is quite bold!”
The manservant stepped forward and hurriedly said, “Lady Boss, please don’t be angry, signboard, signboard, don’t ruin your own signboard!” If the Proprietress were to attack a customer here, the signboard that had been maintained for so many years would be destroyed.
Hearing this, Madam Lan frowned and stopped in her tracks, staring fiercely at Yang Kai for a moment before suddenly laughing.
Yang Kai said angrily, “What are you laughing about? Be careful not to laugh your teeth out!”
Madam Lan waved her hand and walked to the side to sit down, a faint smile still on her face. Although she had been injured by Yang Kai in a moment of carelessness, thinking about how an Emperor Realm master was able to achieve such a feat right in front of her eyes, it was still quite rare. The injury wasn’t serious, but compared to her own injuries, the Proprietress was more interested in Yang Kai.
In this vast universe and three thousand worlds, there was probably not a single Emperor Realm master who could accomplish what this boy had done in the past few days.
Seemingly alarmed by the Proprietress's aura, several figures quickly appeared on the second floor.
The one in the lead was Great Moon Province’s Meng Hong, followed by Old Fang, Die You, Asun, and the others. These people had received Wei Que’s instructions to come to the First Inn in advance and send a message to Great Moon Province’s headquarters, which was why they had appeared here.
All of a sudden, they saw Yang Kai lying on the ground in a sorry state. Meng Hong was shocked and was about to investigate when he heard Yang Kai’s urgent voice transmission, “Don’t come over!”
Meng Hong didn’t understand, but he also stopped.
“Pretend you don’t know me!” Yang Kai told him and Die You before turning his eyes away.
Old Fang and the others also heard this sound transmission at the same time. Although they didn’t know what was happening, they knew that Yang Kai must have gotten into some kind of trouble.
At this moment, the accountant has open the room for him. The manservant helped Yang Kai up and held the room token, “Come, I’ll help you rest!”
Yang Kai didn’t say anything and simply allowed him to help him up the stairs. As he passed by Madam Lan, she casually said, “If you’ve thought it through, come find me at any time.”
It was rare for her to be able to say such words at this time, so Yang Kai also calmed down and nodded, “Many thanks for Madam’s kindness, I was forced to act before, please forgive me!”
Madam Lan waved her hand and said no more.
Accompanied by the manservant, they entered the room. It wasn’t the best room, it was no different from the one he had stayed in before. In any case, it was twice as expensive.
Supporting him to sit down, the manservant said, “If there’s anything you need help with, please call me. I’ll get back to work.”
Yang Kai nodded.
After the servant left, Yang Kai took out a few pills and stuffed them into his mouth, but before he could refine them, he heard a light knock on the door.
After struggling to get up, Meng Hong led Old Fang and the others into the room!
Die You asked with concern, “Yang Kai, are you alright? Are your injuries serious?”
Yang Kai smiled bitterly, “It’s not heavy, just a few days of rest will do.” Madam Lan’s palm strike should have been merciful, not wanting to take his life, but she had also underestimated his physique, so she didn’t make him lose his ability to move, allowing him to use the momentum to rush into the First Inn.
If it were any other Emperor Realm master, how could they possibly be able to move under this palm strike? They would most likely be lying on the ground, waiting to be slaughtered.
With his current physique, although this injury looked miserable, it was actually not serious.
Old Fang said angrily, “Who injured you? Little brother, tell me, this old brother will avenge you right now!”
Yang Kai waved his hand, “Let’s not talk about this.”
Old Fang said, “Little Brother, are you looking down on me? Although this old master’s strength is lacking, I still have some courage. Even if I have to sacrifice this cheap life of mine, I will help you vent your anger!”
Yang Kai looked at him with a moved expression, “Old Fang, since you say so, I’ll tell you the truth. This injury was not caused by someone else, it was caused by Madam Lan! Go out and help me beat her up!”
“Madam… Madam Lan?” Old Fang was stunned, “Which Madam Lan?”
“The First Inn's Madam Lan!”
Old Fang swallowed a mouthful of saliva and coughed lightly before patting Yang Kai’s shoulder, “Little brother, after surviving a great disaster, there will always be good fortune. As long as the green mountain remains, there will always be firewood to burn. I think we should take our time to think about revenge! But then again, why did you suddenly disappear from the Sun Star? We were so worried about you. We even looked for you for a long time, but you were nowhere to be found. Xiao Die and Asun were crying so hard… Aiyo, why did you pinch me?”
Yang Kai said bitterly, “It’s a long story, I have troubled everyone to worry.”
Meng Hong frowned, “How did you provoke Madam Lan? Why did she attack you?”
“It’s a long story,” Yang Kai said with a wry smile, “Senior Wei and Senior Tao should be coming to the First Inn soon. You can ask them when the time comes.”
It wasn’t that Yang Kai didn’t want to tell them, but if he did, it would only make them worry. As for whether Wei Que and Tao Rongfang would tell them or not, that was none of his business.
With a solemn expression, he said, “I may have some trouble recently, so you must act as if you don’t know me in this inn, otherwise you’ll likely catch fire!”
As soon as these words came out, Meng Hong immediately realized the seriousness of the situation and nodded, “If there is anything my Great Moon Province can help with, feel free to ask.”
“Many thanks, Brother Meng,” Yang Kai cupped his fists.
After exchanging a few more words, Meng Hong and the others took their leave. Yang Kai really needed to heal himself, so it wasn’t convenient for them to disturb him. Before leaving, Meng Hong left a bottle of healing pills for Yang Kai.
Closing the door behind him, Yang Kai focused on healing his injuries and paid no attention to the outside world. Although the healing medicine left behind by Meng Hong wasn’t very high-grade, it was still something from the Outer Universe and was somewhat better than the pills Yang Kai had brought from the Star Boundary. After a few days, his injuries had basically healed.
During these past few days, the First Inn had become quite lively.
First, a few mid rank open heaven stage masters arrived one after another to inquire about the situation. After learning that Yang Kai had indeed come to the First Inn, and that he had come with injuries, all of them had a look of disgust on their faces.
Since Yang Kai was injured, it meant that Madam Lan had attacked him. Since Madam Lan had taken action, the Golden Crow’s corpse had most likely been snatched away by Madam Lan. Even if they had come here, it would have been useless. They silently cursed this little brat for having too many things to do, running here and there and eventually falling into her trap.
Soon after, the Low Rank Open Heaven Stage masters who had survived on Sun Star also arrived at the First Inn.
Previously, they had chased after Yang Kai, but their speed couldn’t keep up, so they slowly lost their target. Without any direction, they could only go to the First Inn, after all, their disciples were all waiting inside.
When they arrived at the First Inn, they found out that a few Mid Rank Open Heaven Stage masters and the Emperor Realm master who had seized the Golden Crow’s corpse were also in the First Inn!
However, after thinking about it carefully, they all understood Yang Kai’s intentions and plans, vaguely guessing the future developments.
Inside a room, Wei Que and Tao Rongfang sat across a table while Meng Hong and the others stood in front of them and reported what they had seen and heard.
After hearing this, Wei Que and Tao Rongfang glanced at each other before the former smiled and said, “That little brat is really lucky to be alive!”
“Although he managed to save his life, it’s still quite troublesome,” Tao Rongfang sighed.
Meng Hong asked, “Martial Uncle, what happened on Sun Star? Why did Junior Brother Yang have a conflict with Madam Lan and was injured by her?”
Wei Que hesitated for a moment. Originally, he didn’t want to say anything, but he knew that he couldn’t hide this matter. Even if he didn’t say anything, the news about the Sun Star would soon spread like wildfire and the disciples below would also know.
Immediately, he briefly explained what had happened in the Golden Crow Divine Palace.
Meng Hong and the others were dumbfounded.
Old Fang said in shock, “Martial Uncle Wei, are you saying that Yang Kai snatched the corpse of an adult Golden Crow in front of a group of Open Heaven Stage masters and then ran away?”
If it weren’t for Wei Que’s serious tone, he wouldn’t have believed it.
Tao Rongfang nodded, “That’s right. At that time, a group of Open Heaven Stage masters was chasing after him, but who would have thought he would run so fast? Us Low Rank Open Heaven Stage masters were left behind, and only a few Mid rank Open Heaven Stage masters managed to chase after him. As for what happened afterwards, we don’t know.”
Old Fang and the others looked at each other in dismay. Although they hadn’t experienced it personally, they could still imagine how dangerous it had been for Yang Kai.
Just how bold was he to dare snatch food from a tiger’s mouth in front of a group of Open Heaven Stage masters! The key was that he had actually succeeded!
Wei Que looked at Old Fang and asked, “Does Yang Kai have some kind of hidden artifact on him?”
When he was in the Golden Crow Divine Palace’s main hall, Yang Kai had clearly been hiding his figure. If it weren’t for the Golden Crow being hit in front of him at the last moment, he wouldn’t have revealed himself.
Old Fang hesitated for a moment, mainly because this was Yang Kai’s secret and he couldn’t expose it.
Seeing this, Wei Que said, “I was just asking casually, if you don’t want to say, then don’t.”
“Many thanks for Martial Uncle Wei’s understanding!” Old Fang said gratefully, but he also knew that even if he didn’t say anything, those Open Heaven Stage masters would have their own guesses.
“There’s something I don’t quite understand,” Tao Rongfang frowned, “Was the Golden Crow’s corpse on Yang Kai or was it stolen by Madam Lan?”
