This question was also something everyone wanted to understand. It wasn’t convenient to inquire from the Proprietress's side, so Yang Kai’s side was a breakthrough point, a place where it was easy to make a move. However, Yang Kai had been well protected by the First Inn, so even if they wanted to inquire about him, there was nothing they could do. Now that the First Inn’s attitude was clear, they naturally didn’t have to worry.
Naturally, Yang Kai wouldn’t answer such a question honestly. Just as he was thinking about whether or not he should cause more trouble, he discovered that he couldn’t even think about lying. In front of this young man who was surrounded by Demonic Qi, it was as if all of his thoughts had been exposed.
Was this the power of a High Rank Open Heaven Stage? When he was facing Situ Kong, the other party hadn’t given him so much pressure, but now facing this young man, Yang Kai found that even breathing was an extravagant hope!
Cold sweat dripped down Yang Kai’s forehead as he struggled to look up. The young man opposite him wore a faint smile as he stared back at him, but behind him, there seemed to be a fierce beast trying to swallow him whole.
His flesh and blood squirmed and his bones cracked as a deathly aura enveloped him.
I would die! I would definitely die! The evil aura emanating from the young man made him understand that if his answer was unsatisfactory, this guy would really attack him.
In the blink of an eye, Yang Kai had no choice but to grit his teeth and hide inside his Wishful Bag.
There was really no other way. He didn't dare to expose the Mysterious Boundary Bead, nor could he escape by teleporting. If he hid inside the Wishful Bag, he might have a chance to catch his breath, but if he did so, he would be like a turtle in a jar, drinking poison to quench his thirst.
The moment Yang Kai’s figure disappeared, the young man raised his brow, “Golden Crow!”
He stretched out his hand and grabbed the Wishful Bag. The moment it opened, he clearly felt the aura of the Golden Crow and immediately understood that the Golden Crow was still in Yang Kai’s hands.
His movements couldn’t be described as slow, but some people were even faster. While the Wishful Bag was still in mid-air, a few palms appeared out of thin air and grabbed towards it.
The young man laughed loudly, “A bunch of shameless bastards!” With a loud bang, Demonic Qi swept out and the tables in the room were turned into dust. The young man then pounced forward like a dragon from the sea.
Boom boom boom…
The world’s great power collided, and in the void, it was difficult to say how many masters were exchanging blows at this moment, some of them even letting out muffled groans.
The First Inn, which had stood in the void for thousands of years, suddenly shattered as dozens of figures shot out in all directions, many of them engaged in a fierce battle, each of them using their own unique techniques and secret techniques.
Madam Lan’s face was ashen as she stood in a certain place in the void, staring at the spot where the First Inn had originally been. She grit her teeth as she held Bai Qi in one hand and the Accountant in the other, her entire body filled with a cold chill.
Bai Qi's mouth was so wide that it could fit a fist into it. The sudden change in events from before had been too sudden, so he hadn’t been able to react to what had just happened. Only now did he shout, “Proprietress, they tore down our inn!”
The Accountant also stared with wide eyes, “What should we do!”
Since the First Inn’s opening, not many people had dared to cause trouble here. Those who had the courage to do so normally wouldn’t live long, but this time, the people who caused trouble were different. There were several families who didn’t fear the First Inn’s background, so even if this inn was torn down, it would still be for nothing. It was impossible for them to ask for compensation. After all, the First Inn’s Owner was also involved.
“Little brat, I’ll skin you alive!” Madam Lan said hatefully.
If it wasn’t for Yang Kai hiding the Golden Crow’s corpse, how could the First Inn have suffered such misfortune? If he had handed over the Golden Crow’s corpse earlier, nothing would have happened. Now that the situation had become so big, no one knew how to end it.
As the six High Rank Open Heaven Stage masters fought in the void, the Wishful Bag constantly changing hands. Even Madam Lan couldn’t intervene in such a battle and could only watch from afar.
The other Mid Rank Open Heaven Stage from Second Class forces were the same. Previously, many people had participated in the fight for the Wishful Bag, but all of them had suffered a great loss. At this time, all of them had become well-behaved, knowing that this Golden Crow’s corpse was destined to fall into the hands of several High Rank Open Heaven Stage, so they didn’t waste any time or energy.
Thinking about it, although a Golden Crow’s corpse was extremely valuable, it was not worth them risking their lives for!
At the same time, Yang Kai, who was hiding in the Wishful Bag, was quite calm. Although the attacks of the several Hig Rank Open Heaven Stage masters were earth-shattering, they were still able to protect the Wishful Baag because they knew that if they destroyed the Wishful Bag, the contents of the bag would likely end up in the Void Crack, and they would never be able to find it.
Quietly opening a crack, Yang Kai released his Divine Sense, but before he could discover anything, Yang Kai felt a sharp pain in his head and the Divine Sense he released was torn apart by the violent force.
At that moment, it was as if several masters were exchanging blows!
This situation left Yang Kai somewhat dumbfounded. Previously, he had been forced by the young man’s might and had no choice but to hide inside the Wishful Bag for the time being. As for what had happened after that, Yang Kai had no idea. He could only vaguely guess that it was the experts on the First Inn who were fighting over the Wishful Bag.
He didn’t know who would obtain this Wishful Bag in the end and what his fate would be!
At this moment, Yang Kai faintly hoped that Situ Kong would be able to obtain the Wishful Bag. At the very least, the feeling he got from Situ Kong was not unreasonable. The young man he saw just now was shrouded in Demonic Qi and was obviously not a good person. If the Wishful Bag was snatched by him, how could Yang Kai have any good luck?
At this time, it was impossible for him to jump out again. The shockwaves from the several High Rank Open Heaven Stage were enough to crush his bones.
Letting out a long sigh, Yang Kai felt a headache coming on. This kind of feeling of entrusting one’s fate to the mercy of others was very uncomfortable, and he was not used to it. However, the road to Heaven was long, and he needed to gather the power of Yin, Yang, and the Five Elements. When he broke through to Open Heaven, who knew how long it would be?
Suddenly, Yang Kai remembered that the guy wrapped in Demonic Qi couldn’t possibly be from Myriad Demons Heaven, right? He had heard Duan Hai mention Myriad Demons Heaven before. It was one of the 36 Cave Heaven, one of the top forces, and Mo Sheng was also from Myriad Demons Heaven!
As his thoughts ran wild, Yang Kai suddenly turned his head and stared at the Golden Crow corpse beside him, his eyes flashing.
If those High Rank Open Heaven Stage masters wanted to compete for the Wishful Bag, it would not be easy to determine the victor in a short period of time. In a fight between masters of this level, it might take them a year or so.
Such a long time was enough for him to condense his Fire Element.
Thinking of this, Yang Kai was overjoyed. Previously, he had been thinking of delaying this matter for a few days, but the Proprietress had not given him the chance to do so. Who would have thought that he would suddenly see the light at the end of the tunnel?
In less than a year, Yang Kai would be able to completely satiate the Fire Element energy in his Dao Seal in five or six days! At that time, no matter how precious the Golden Crow’s corpse was, it wouldn’t be of much use to him.
He had been forced to take a wrong move, but who would have thought it would be the key to victory!
There was no need to hesitate. Yang Kai had first sealed the Wishful Bag, and although this action was somewhat redundant, if those High Rank Open Heaven Stage masters wanted to open the Wishful Bag, a mere restriction shouldn’t be difficult for them, but at the very least, it could buy him some time to disguise himself so that others wouldn’t discover he was secretly absorbing the Golden Crow True Fire. Otherwise, all his secrets would be exposed!
Sitting cross-legged in front of the Golden Crow’s corpse, Yang Kai placed his hand on the Golden Crow’s forehead as usual, circulating the power of his Dao Seal to guide the True Fire inside its body.
As time slowly passed, the battle outside continued. No one had expected that a mere Emperor Realm would have such courage to try to break through under the watchful eyes of a group of High Rank masters.
One day, two days, three days…
The Fire Element energy in the Dao Seal became more abundant, and Yang Kai’s anxious heart gradually relaxed, gradually forgetting his current situation and focusing on condensing the Fire Element.
It wasn’t until a certain moment when the Fire Element energy in his Dao Seal had completely condensed and was unable to absorb any more Golden Crow True Fire that Yang Kai suddenly realized that he had successfully condensed his Fire Element.
Quietly sensing that there was still some True Fire left in the Golden Crow’s corpse, it was just that it was much thinner than before, and it was unknown if it was enough for another person to condense his Fire Element.
However, this had nothing to do with him anymore. Yang Kai was satisfied with the gains he had reaped from this adventure, so even if the Golden Crow’s corpse was snatched away and he was not given any benefits, he would accept it.
Now, all that was left was how to escape…
Hiding in the Wishful Bag was not an option, he had to face what he had to face. Moreover, Yang Kai couldn’t be certain which family his Wishful Bag would eventually fall into. If it fell into Situ Kong’s hands, it would be fine, but if it fell into someone else’s hands, what would he do?
Yang Kai wanted to investigate the situation outside, but when he recalled the pain of his Divine Sense being torn apart last time, he couldn’t help feeling a little scared.
After hesitating for a long time, Yang Kai gritted his teeth, opened the barrier, and secretly released his Divine Sense.
Originally, he had been mentally prepared to suffer the destruction of his Divine Sense, but who would have thought that the situation outside was somewhat different from what he had imagined.
The battle between the High Rank Open Heaven Stage had stopped at some point, and the void was calm and tranquil. As far as Yang Kai could tell, there weren’t many people here anymore. In the void, a chessboard was laid out, and Situ Kong sat on one side of it, facing the young man Yang Kai had seen before, as well as a few other people with profound auras.
The Proprietress, Bai Qi, the Accountant, and many of the servants from the First Inn all stood behind Situ Kong.
What was happening?
Yang Kai couldn’t understand.
Just as Yang Kai was puzzled, Situ Kong suddenly said, “Come out, can you hide for the rest of your life?” As he spoke, he swept his eyes over the crowd. Even though he was separated by the Wishful Bag, Yang Kai could still feel it in the depths of his soul.
