“You know how to make people happy!” The Proprietress smiled lightly before turning around and walking towards the inner courtyard. Only after her figure disappeared did the quiet hall once again become noisy.
“What’s going on?” Yang Kai stared at the Accountant, but the Accountant’s face was still filled with confusion. Didn’t the Proprietress always feel depressed whenever she ate that Snowy Sky Thread? Why was it so different this time?
“Did you see that? Did you see that? The Proprietress put on that hairpin,” Old Bai couldn’t be bothered to wipe the floor as he leaned over and whispered, a look of horror on his face.
How could they not see it? Just now, the Proprietress had even deliberately held up the silver and gold phoenix hairpin and asked for Yang Kai and the Accountant’s opinion.
“What's the matter with that hairpin?” Yang Kai had just joined the First Inn not long ago, so he was a bit confused.
“That hairpin…” The Accountant frowned, “It was given to the Proprietress by a very important person. She hasn’t worn it for a long time.”
“Moreover, there’s something wrong with the Proprietress’ attitude today!” Old Bai stared towards the backyard.
“There must be something wrong with this situation!” The accountant clicked his tongue.
“Then should I go or not?” Yang Kai asked. Just now, the Proprietress had called him over and said that she had something to tell him. He had already decided that he would not go find the Proprietress for the next three days, but now he was in a dilemma.
“Go, go, go.” Old Bai grabbed his arm and pushed him towards the inner courtyard, “Proprietress has summoned you, can you not go?”
“Did something happen?” Yang Kai asked worriedly. He didn’t want to get drunk by the Proprietress again, he didn’t want the embarrassing incident from last time to happen again.
“Enough nonsense, hurry up and go!” Old Bai said impatiently.
Yang Kai had no choice but to brace himself and head towards the inner courtyard.
After he left, Old Bai returned to the counter and looked at Yang Kai’s figure before sighing, “It’s been so many years, it’s about time to come out.”
The Accountant lowered his eyes, “It’s not so easy to walk out of a blood feud, but it’s not a bad idea to have someone to rely on. Speaking of which, is Yang Kai’s background clear? Don’t let anything wrong in the end.”
Bai Qi said, “I came out to inquire personally, so what’s there to be unclear about? He hasn’t been in these three thousand worlds for long, so there’s no need to investigate anything. Moreover, this fellow’s temperament is quite to my liking, he doesn’t seem like someone from there.”
“Good,” The Accountant sighed, “If the same things happen twice, Proprietress won’t be able to get up.”
The two of them looked at each other and sighed heavily.
Inside the boudoir, the Proprietress was sitting upright. When Yang Kai entered, he was a bit nervous. Fortunately, there was no smell of alcohol in the room, nor was there any messy fruit core. It seemed that the Proprietress hadn’t drunk last night.
“This is for you, go back and refine it,” The Proprietress didn’t say anything else and directly handed Yang Kai a shuttle shaped object.
Yang Kai took it and raised his brow, “Domain Shuttle?”
He had seen this thing before. Previously, when he was in the Star City, he had gone to many shops and seen many of Star City’s goods, and this Domain Shuttle was one of them.
As the name implied, this artifact was a type of artifact specifically used to travel through the Domain Gates. The Hundred Refining Hall sold it, and it was divided into several grades based on quality.
The lowest grade was at least a hundred thousand, and above that were hundreds of thousands, or even millions. The higher the quality, the more expensive it was, and of course the longer it could be used.
The lowest grade Domain Shuttle could only withstand three to five shuttles, and any more than that would cause it to be unable to withstand the pressure from the Domain Gates. Forcefully using it would only result in destruction.
The highest grade Domain Gates could be used indefinitely, so there was no risk of damage. Of course, the price was also high.
Yang Kai didn’t know what grade this thing the Proprietress had given him was, but the Proprietress definitely won't give something bad.
“It’s good that you recognize it,” The Proprietress smiled, “Actually, last time… forget it, don’t force your way through the Domain Gate anymore. You haven’t even reached the Open Heaven Stage yet, doing so is very dangerous. Refine this and if you want to use it again in the future, just use it.”
This was something he needed, so Yang Kai didn’t try to be polite and simply nodded, “Thank you, Proprietress.”
The Proprietress sneered, “What are you thanking me for? You’re my shop’s shop assistant, so I naturally have to consider your safety. Alright, if there’s nothing else, you can go back to work.”
Saying so, she waved her hand.
Yang Kai cupped his fists and took his leave. After taking a few steps, he suddenly remembered something and turned around, “Proprietress, is our shop still short of people?”
The Proprietress looked up at him and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“It’s like this, if there is a shortage of people in the shop, I would like to introduce someone. That person has helped me a lot, but because her strength is not high, living in the Star City is quite difficult.”
The Proprietress pondered for a moment before asking, “The woman you send to inform us about the matter last time?”
“Yes, it’s her!” Yang Kai nodded, “Her name is Luo Haiyi. She was born in this Star City and has never joined any forces. If Proprietress is worried about her, you can inquire about her background.”
“There’s no need for that, you can go talk to her. If she’s willing, just let her come over. It’s just one more person.”
Yang Kai didn’t expect the Proprietress to agree so quickly and immediately thanked her.
Returning to the main hall, Old Bai immediately came up to him and asked worriedly, “Is everything alright?”
“It’s fine, I’ll go out for a while!” Yang Kai stuffed the white towel on his shoulder into Old Bai’s hand and left.
Last time, he had lived in Luo Haiyi’s house, so Yang Kai could vaguely remember its location. After arriving at the outermost edge of Star City, he had finally found Luo Haiyi’s house in the midst of the messy buildings, but he found that there was no one there.
Fortunately, he still had a way to contact Luo Haiyi, so he immediately took out his communication bead and sent her a message.
A moment later, Luo Haiyi sent him a message, asking him to wait for a moment while she replied immediately.
After waiting for less than an incense stick’s worth of time, Luo Haiyi hurriedly appeared. When she saw Yang Kai, she asked in surprise, “Sir Yang, why are you here?”
After the incident at the Wind and Cloud Auction House, she had never seen Yang Kai again, nor had she seen him contact her. She had thought that Yang Kai had forgotten about her, but after more than a month, Yang Kai had actually come looking for her.
Yang Kai smiled slightly, “What? Can’t I come?”
Luo Haiyi quickly waved her hand and said, “That’s not what I meant, it’s just that a few days ago I went to the First Inn to look for you and they said you were missing.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “It was just a misunderstanding…” His expression suddenly became serious as he asked in surprise, “You condensed a Dao Seal?”
Since they last met, although Luo Haiyi was still an Emperor Realm, the aura of the Dao circulating around her body clearly indicated that she had successfully condensed her Dao Seal and could now hope to reach the Open Heaven Stage.
Luo Haiyi said, “I must thank Sir Yang for giving me this Great Dao Pill, otherwise, I don’t know when I would have been able to condense my Dao Seal.” She had gone to the First Inn a few days ago to look for Yang Kai to express her gratitude, but when she arrived, she heard that Yang Kai had mysteriously disappeared. The First Inn's Proprietress was so angry that she quickly left. Although she had been paying attention to Yang Kai’s news recently, she had found nothing.
“It’s nothing,” Yang Kai waved his hand. The Great Dao Pill was something he had casually taken from the auction house, he didn’t have much use for it. So he give it to Luo Haiyi, “You don’t need to call me ‘Sir’, just call me Big Brother Yang.”
Thinking about how everyone was going to work together at the First Inn in the future, he decided to change his title a little, otherwise it would be quite awkward.
“How could I…” Luo Hai Yi waved her hand repeatedly.
Just as Yang Kai was about to say something, he heard a strange voice not far from him, “I was wondering why you, cheap slut, suddenly abandoned this Young Master. It turns out you came here to meet your lover. You really don’t put this Young Master in your eyes.”
Hearing this, Luo Haiyi’s expression changed.
Yang Kai couldn’t help frowning as he looked towards the source of the voice and saw a group of three people walking towards them. The one in the lead was a young man with a clean white face. He wore luxurious clothes and had an extraordinary bearing. It was obvious at a glance that he came from a wealthy family, and behind him was a middle-aged man and an old man, seemingly a guard.
When these three people walked over, Yang Kai had already noticed them, but he hadn’t expected them to be looking for Luo Haiyi.
Looking at these three people, Yang Kai’s expression changed slightly. The young man in the lead was one thing, he was just a Principle Source Stage cultivator who wasn’t even an Emperor Realm. Yang Kai didn’t know how bad his aptitude was, but in this Outer Universe, there was actually such existence.
The middle-aged man and the old man behind him had profound auras, two Open Heaven Stage masters! From Yang Kai’s perspective, these two people’s auras were no weaker than Great Moon Province’s Wei Que’s.
In other words, these were two Third Order Open Heaven Stage!
What kind of background did this guy have? He was just a Principle Source Stage cultivator, yet he had two Third Order Open Heaven Stage guards with him, and he even knew Luo Haiyi. Yang Kai couldn’t understand.
“Bitch! This Young Master paid you to serve this Young Master properly, not to have you come here to flirt with your lover. Tell me, how should we settle this debt?”
The young man’s bearing was extraordinary and he had a dignified appearance, but as soon as he spoke, he spat out a mouthful of poisonous words and didn’t even spare Yang Kai a glance, instead staring at Luo Haiyi and shouting.
Luo Haiyi’s body trembled as she quickly explained, “Young Master Hai, you misunderstand. This Sir Yang and I are old friends, he came to find me for something. This Mistress didn’t mean to leave Young Master behind, so this Mistress here apologizes to Young Master. Please forgive me.”
Young Master Hai glanced at Yang Kai from the corner of his eyes and coldly snorted, “What dogshit Sir Yang is this? A mere piece of trash dares to address himself as Sir in front of this young master? Truly ignorant!”
Yang Kai immediately became unhappy. This was the first time he had met this Young Master Hai, yet he had been called a piece of trash. His face immediately sank as he said, “Friend, can you please speak nicely? If you don’t know how to speak, I can teach you on behalf of your Elder!”
Young Master Hai sneered, “Friend? Who’s your friend? Trash like you dares to speak so arrogantly in front of this Young Master?” The two Third Order Open Heaven Stage masters behind him also stared coldly at Yang Kai as the power of Open Heaven's prestige slowly spread from their bodies.
