After entering the room, the secret room closed and everything became pitch black.
Just as Yang Kai was puzzled, a light suddenly burst out and he looked up, only to see that on the floor of this secret room, a series of patterns lit up, gradually forming a complicated and massive Spirit Array.
Yang Kai understood and walked towards the center of this Spirit Array. Just as he stood there, a buzzing sound came from all around him, as if the Spirit Array was being activated.
A faint pulling force came from the Spirit Array and Yang Kai immediately understood, quickly forming a series of hand seals and calming his Qi. He could clearly feel his aura being attracted by the Spirit Array and knew that this Spirit Array was recording some special information about him.
Buzzing sounds rang out as the Spirit Array spun endlessly.
After a long time, the buzzing sound gradually died down and the light from the Spirit Array gradually weakened, eventually returning to darkness.
Yang Kai carefully sensed his surroundings and found that he seemed to have a faint connection with a certain place in the Universe Temple, but he didn’t know how to use this connection for the time being. After all, he hadn’t cultivated the Universe Escape Law before, but judging from the current situation, he should have completed the branding.
In truth, he was quite curious about what this Universe Escape Seal was. He had thought he would be able to see it for himself this time, but who would have thought that he would only see a single Spirit Array.
Since he couldn’t see it, there was nothing he could do about it. Yang Kai slipped around the room a few more times but didn’t find anything special, so he pushed open the door and left.
Outside the door, Bai Qi asked, “How is it?”
“It’s done.” Yang Kai didn’t feel any discomfort like Bai Qi had said. He estimated that it had something to do with his proficiency in the Space Laws. Those who didn’t understand the Space Laws would probably feel uncomfortable when they first came here.
“Good!” Bai Qi let out a sigh of relief before turning to the Golden Armored Guard and cupping his fists, “Many thanks, Sir.”
The man nodded lightly, “No form of fighting is allowed in the Universe Temple, otherwise, kill without mercy. Good luck!” Finished speaking, he sealed the secret room and turned to leave.
He was mainly responsible for bringing Yang Kai here to leave his mark, so he didn’t need to worry about the rest. When Yang Kai and Bai Qi wanted to leave, it was their own business, the Universe Temple wouldn’t interfere.
“Come, accompany me to buy some things,” Bai Qi said as he pulled Yang Kai’s arm and walked off in a certain direction. From his familiar appearance, it was obvious this was not his first time here.
The things Bai Qi wanted to buy were very messy, obviously what the inn needed. Yang Kai followed behind him and observed.
“After leaving behind your Mark, cultivate the Universe Escape Law later. In the future, you will be able to come to this place as you please. Of course, the premise is that you are in this great domain, but you must remember that once you use the Universe Escape Law, you will be able to escape directly into this place. If you are too far away, with your current cultivation, you won’t be able to withstand it. At that time, you will face the risk of being torn to pieces.”
Yang Kai nodded, indicating that he understood.
“There’s one more thing you must remember. When the Universe Escape Law is used, there will be a certain amount of delay. It doesn’t mean you can immediately escape. You must grasp this opportunity well. If you are chased by others in the future, don’t use the Universe Escape Law in front of them. Otherwise, before you can escape, they will kill you. You must use this technique from a safe distance.”
Yang Kai asked, “How long will it take?”
Bai Qi glanced at him, “With your current cultivation, it should be around five or six breaths. Of course, the higher your cultivation, the shorter the time it will take, but no matter how short it is, there will be a delay.”
“Then who should I learn Universe Escape Law from?” Yang Kai asked.
“I’ll teach you later!” Bai Qi grinned, “But you have to pay a fee.”
Yang Kai grabbed his Space Ring and said vigilantly, “I don’t have any money!” He still owed the Proprietress ten million, who knew when he would be able to pay it back.
Bai Qi said, “It doesn’t matter if you don’t have money. You even obtained the Golden Crow’s corpse in the Golden Crow Divine Palace, haven’t you obtained any Sun's True Fire or Sun's True Gold?” As he spoke, he winked at him.
“No!” Yang Kai replied decisively.
“Don’t be so stingy, I’m not picky, just give me some Sun's True Fire or whatever.”
“Forget it, I’ll ask the Proprietress to teach me the Universe Escape Law later, there’s no need to trouble you.”
Bai Qi was speechless…
Half an hour later, the two of them flew out from the Universe Temple and returned the way they came. The First Inn's flying ship had not gone far and was still waiting there.
When they returned to the ship, the Proprietress went to talk to the two of them and asked about the situation. After learning that everything was going smoothly, she didn’t say anything but simply nodded and waved them off.
However, before she left, she flicked a jade slip to Yang Kai and said, “Since you’ve left behind your mark, you must cultivate the Universe Escape Law. Since you’re proficient in the Space Laws, it shouldn’t be too difficult for you to cultivate the the Universe Escape Law.”
Yang Kai thanked her and left together with Bai Qi, closing the door behind them. Yang Kai waved the jade slip in Bai Qi’s hand with a proud expression.
Bai Qi's expression was extremely sour.
For the next ten days or so, Yang Kai continued to cultivate the Universe Escape Law in his room. Just as the Proprietress had said, this Secret Technique was not difficult for him to master. After all, he had the foundation of a Space Ability. Strictly speaking, the Universe Escape Law was also a type of Space Ability, but it required the use of the Universe Escape Seal. Even if he was not proficient in the Space Law, he could still use it. This was the greatest charm of the Universe Escape Law.
Ordinary people would need at least a year or two to familiarize themselves with this technique, but in Yang Kai’s case, he had already mastered it after more than ten days. If it weren’t for the fact that it was inconvenient, Yang Kai would have even wanted to try out the mysteries of this Universe Escape Law.
However, although he didn’t have a chance to try it out, Yang Kai could clearly feel that there was a close connection between him and the Universe Temple when he used it. However, before he reached a critical juncture, Yang Kai would interrupt to prevent himself from actually going to the Universe Temple.
The flying ship continued to sail, but it was unknown where its destination was. About a month after setting off from the First Inn site, a loud buzzing sound suddenly rang out, causing the entire flying ship to shake violently.
Yang Kai was startled and quickly rushed to the deck, only to see that the Bai Qi, the Chef, and the Accountant were already there. The Proprietress stood at the bow of the ship, her expression solemn as she formed a series of hand seals with one hand, her strength surging.
“What happened?” Yang Kai asked in a low voice.
Bai Qi said, “Crossing through the Domain Gate, don’t be nervous!”
Only then did Yang Kai notice that the flying ship had arrived at a certain Domain Gate at some point and was slowly entering it. He had also passed through the Domain Gate a few times, but each time, he had been protected by the White Jade Fox of Asun. Except for the last time when the White Jade Fox’s strength had been exhausted, the rest of the journey had been extremely smooth.
He hadn’t expected that the flying ship would cause such a great disturbance in the Domain Gate, causing him to think that a powerful enemy had invaded.
“We’re going to another Great Territory?” Yang Kai was surprised.
“It seems so,” Bai Qi nodded. Listening to these words, he didn’t know where the destination was.
The flying ship was huge, so the pressure it had to bear to pass through the Domain Gate also increased. Fortunately, the Proprietress’ cultivation was at the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage, so no one present was nervous.
Not long after, the entire ship entered the Domain Gate and was protected by a light barrier, so it didn’t feel much disturbance. Looking around, the scenery around the ship became distorted and strange.
In the blink of an eye, the flying ship shook and quickly stabilized, restoring its surroundings to its original state. It was obvious that it had jumped out of the Domain Gate and entered another Great Territory.
The Proprietress seemed to be a little tired from her busy work, so she turned around and entered the room to rest while Yang Kai was dragged away by Bai Qi to drink wine with the Accountant and the Chef.
After a few more days, Bai Qi left the ship with Yang Kai and went to another Universe Temple. With his first experience, the second time was much easier, and soon he left his mark in the Universe Temple.
Along the way, every once in a while, Bai Qi would take Yang Kai to the nearby Universe Temple. After seven or eight times, Yang Kai felt a bit embarrassed and asked on the way back, “Old Bai, did I drag down your schedule?”
Bai Qi turned around and smiled, “Did you just notice?”
Yang Kai couldn’t help sweating, “If it weren’t for me, you should have been able to directly use the Universe Escape Law to travel from one Universe Temple to another. There would have been no need for you all to come here by boat.”
“That’s right, but who asked you to be a member of the First Inn? Since you’re a member of the First Inn, I can’t just abandon you.”
Yang Kai smacked his lips and asked, “Is it Proprietress’ idea?”
Bai Qi nodded, “Of course.”
“Proprietress is actually quite a nice person…” Yang Kai scratched his chin, “Just the cost of Universe Temple alone is 800,000.”
Bai Qi looked at him and blinked, “You think this money was given to you by the Proprietress?”
Yang Kai asked curiously, “Is it not?”
Bai Qi grinned and said, “Proprietress said to put it on your tab. When you have money in the future, you can slowly pay it back!”
“What?” Yang Kai was shocked, “This is my own money?”
“What else?” Bai Qi winked at him.
Yang Kai was dumbstruck… He had thought that it was the Proprietress who had paid the Open Heaven Pills for him, but it turned out that this was the truth, causing his face to twitch.
Seeing this, Bai Qi said, “If you feel bad, next time we pass by the Universe Temple, we won’t go.”
“Go, why not!” Yang Kai grit his teeth. He definitely had to go to the Universe Temple, who knows when it would become his life-saving escape route. Even if he didn’t need to use it to save his life, it would still be a good idea to travel. In any case, there was no need to worry about debts right now, it was just a hundred thousand each time… Compared to the ten million he owed, it was nothing!
Half a year passed in the blink of an eye, and after passing through four great regions, the flying ship finally arrived at its destination.
After receiving the news, Bai Qi excitedly pulled Yang Kai onto the deck and pointed towards a distant Spirit Province, “Boy, do you know where that is?”
Yang Kai replied, “How would I know?” With regards to the Outer Universe, he was still in a state of confusion and unfamiliarity, so how could he know what kind of place it was? Glancing over, he saw that the Proprietress was standing by the side of the ship, her clothes fluttering in the wind, with a smile on her face. It seemed that the boring voyage of the past half a year had caused her to feel somewhat bored. Now that she had finally reached her destination, her mood naturally changed.
