Such a thing couldn’t have been left here for no reason. Obviously, someone had deliberately left it here.
The old man Qi Hai pondered for a moment before suddenly laughing, “So that person isn’t some evil demon, he was just bluffing!”
This ring was obviously left behind by Yang Kai as compensation for this world. If he really was some kind of heinous demon, all he had to do was pat his ass and leave, regardless of the mountain of corpses and sea of blood behind him.
As the Great Emperor of this world, the old man Qi Hai was no fool, he only thought for a moment before reacting.
However, this matter was of great importance, so it was best to report it to the Sect. The nine Great Emperors first divided the tens of thousands Open Heaven Pills, then after a brief discussion, the old man Qi Hai and another female Great Emperor departed for Mirror Flowers Water Moon to report on the Thousand Thoughts World’s current situation.
When the old man Qi Hai and the female Great Emperor set out, somewhere in the void, Heavenly Monarch Hei He's face was ashen and his aura was weak. There were many sword wounds on his body and he was dripping with blood. His brow was twitching as he stood stiffly in place.
Not far from him, Lu Xue stared at him, not taking the opportunity to kill him.
Hei He knew that in his current state, he was like a lamp without oil. If this woman in front of him really wanted to take his life, he wouldn’t be able to resist.
However, although the enemy did not make a move, an aura was locked onto him. Hei He believed that if he made any unusual movements, it would definitely attract a storm of attacks. At that time, he would not be able to resist, so he did not dare act rashly.
How could this happen?
Hei He was puzzled!
Back in the Thousand Thoughts World, when he had fought to the death, he should have severely injured this woman. She should not have much strength left, but it seems that was not the case.
Not only was this woman’s condition not as bad as he had expected, but she was also rapidly recovering. Hei He didn’t know what kind of pills she had taken or if she had used some kind of powerful Secret Technique. The only thing he knew was that in this battle, although he had used all his strength, he had still suffered a crushing defeat!
He had lost!
While the two of them were confronting each other, Yang Kai and Guo Ziyan finally arrived. Seeing this scene, Yang Kai was not surprised at all.
Originally, Hei He was already an arrow at the end of its flight, but now that Lu Xue had consumed the Holy Medicine's grape, how could Hei He resist? If it weren’t for Yang Kai’s prior instructions, Hei He would have been a corpse by now.
Seeing Yang Kai, a complicated look appeared on Hei He's face. Ever since he had sensed the aura of the brand he had planted in his juniors at the Universe Temple, he had been plotting to avenge his junior. It wasn’t that he thought highly of his junior, it was just a matter of convenience that he had planted the brand. It was just that his junior had been killed. If he didn’t demand an explanation, where would his face be?
The lineup of Yang Kai’s group didn’t even enter his eyes. He believed that with his own strength, he would be able to deal with these three.
But who would have thought that a single misstep would lead to him stepping into the gates of hell!
Forcefully squeezing out a smile, Hei He turned to Yang Kai and said, “Little brother, it’s better to squash enmity than keep it alive. This one is willing to pay a price to make peace with you and swear to never tangle with you again.”
Being under someone else’s roof, he had no choice but to lower his head. Hei He didn’t want to lower his head like this, but for the sake of his own life, he could abandon his face.
Seeing his attitude, Yang Kai nodded in satisfaction. If Hei He would rather die than submit, it would be quite troublesome. He had paid a great price this time, so he had to recoup his losses.
“Price? What price?” Yang Kai looked at him calmly.
Hearing this, Hei He's heart felt like a big stone has been lifted. He was really afraid that Yang Kai would give the order to kill him as soon as he arrived. If that happened, he would really have no way out. As long as Yang Kai was willing to negotiate, it would be a good thing.
Although his heart ached, he still quickly took out an item from his Small Universe World and held it in his palm, “Little Brother, what do you think of this?”
This thing was emitting a brilliant golden light and surging with a rich gold element. It was a fifth grade resource!
Unexpectedly, Yang Kai only glanced at it briefly before losing interest and sneering, “Trash!”
“Trash?” Hei He's brow rose. This was a fifth grade resource worth at least 1.5 million Open Heaven Pills. He had obtained it with great difficulty, so how could it be trash?
This guy was trying to raise the price on the spot! Hei He secretly gritted his teeth and took out more resources, almost emptying his pockets.
However, in Yang Kai’s eyes, these things were nothing more than two words.
Hei He's brow twitched violently. He had already taken out all of his precious possessions, yet he was still unable to move Yang Kai. Was he really trying to kill him? Suppressing his anger, Hei He asked, “Little brother, what do you want? Please explain.”
The corners of Yang Kai’s mouth curled up as he looked him up and down and said, “I only have one request. If you agree to my request, I will spare your life. If you dare to say no, today's date will be your death anniversary next year!”
Hei He's expression changed slightly as he cupped his hands and said, “Please speak, if this Hei can help you, I will not refuse!”
Yang Kai immediately became enthusiastic and took out an ancient beast hide book, flipping it open and saying, “Simple, just leave your name and aura here!”
“This is…” Hei He's eyes were sharp and he immediately saw the two words on the page and said in horror, “Loyalty List? You actually have the Loyalty List!”
This was a famous artifact belonging to the Zhongyi Mo, how could it have fallen into this boy’s hands? Wasn’t it said that the Loyalty List had been destroyed along with him? What relationship did this boy have with Zhongyi Mo?
“Oh?” Yang Kai looked at him with a smile, “You know about the Loyalty List? That makes things easier.”
“You want to enslave this Hei?” Hei He flew into a rage. In order to survive, he was willing to pay a price, but that didn’t mean he was willing to be enslaved by others. He was a dignified Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so how could he be willing to live under an Emperor Realm master?
Yang Kai’s face sank as his killing intent surged, “What? You don’t want to? If you don’t want to, I’ll have you die.”
Clang… Lu Xue’s long sword shook and a crisp sound rang out.
Hei He was startled, cold sweat dripping from his forehead as he hurriedly raised his hand, “Wait…”
“I don’t have time to wait for you, I’ll give you ten breaths to decide whether you want to live or die!” Yang Kai coldly snorted and turned to Lu Xue.
Lu Xue stepped forward and pointed her sword towards Hei He.
Hei He's sweat poured down like rain as he struggled internally! He was a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage master who was normally high and mighty and naturally didn’t want to be enslaved, but now that his life was in the hands of others, he didn’t even have the capital to refuse.
Feeling Lu Xue’s cold killing intent, he realized that Yang Kai wasn’t joking. If he really refused, he would definitely end up in a tragedy today.
But if he agreed just like that, where would his face go?
Ten breaths of time passed quickly and Yang Kai’s expression became cold, “Stubborn fool, kill him!”
Lu Xue was about to attack.
Hei He lowered his head and said, “I accept, I hope little brother can show mercy.”
He wasn’t an unyielding character to begin with, and if it weren’t for this, he wouldn’t have submitted so quickly. Now, in order to survive, it wasn’t impossible for him to leave his name and aura on the Loyalty List. At worst, he would find a way to escape this suppression in the future.
Yang Kai grinned, “A wise man submits to circumstances!”
Immediately, he asked Hei He to leave his name and aura on the Loyalty List. During this entire process, Lu Xue was on high alert, her aura firmly locked onto Hei He. If he had any malicious intentions, he would definitely be attacked by Lu Xue.
Soon, the words ‘Hei He’ appeared on the second page of the Loyalty List. Yang Kai also clearly felt that there was a connection between the two.
The Loyalty List was a wondrous artifact that could be used without refining it. It was refined from the skin and flesh of a Xiezhi. The Xiezhi was also one of the Holy Spirits and was innately capable of distinguishing right from wrong, recognizing loyalty and evil, and was refined from its body’s materials.
However, there were many advantages to using this thing, but there were also drawbacks.
Since Yang Kai can't refine it, he wouldn’t be able to completely control the Loyalty List. In other words, whoever held the Loyalty List would be able to control the life and death of the person on it.
There was only one name on the loyalty book, and it was Chen Tian Fei. Now, on the second page, there was Hei He, and the entire Loyalty List only had nine pages! In other words, the Loyalty List could only enslave nine people.
Using one of these quotas in exchange for a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage as a hired thug was a good deal.
However, Yang Kai’s investment was also huge. At the very least, the value of those two World Fruits was extraordinary. In order to give Lu Xue a chance to fight Hei He, he didn’t hesitate to use a Mid Rank World Fruit, and even Guo Ziyan used a Low Rank World Fruit to advance to the Third Order Open Heaven.
Yang Kai only had a total of three Mid Rank fruits! He had left one for Yue He and one for Lu Xue, now he only had one left.
Hei He was also quite a character. Since he had left his name on the Loyalty List, he had no power to resist, so he quickly changed his attitude and took the initiative to give the things he had taken out to Yang Kai as an apology.
Yang Kai didn’t refuse and happily accepted it. Although these things weren’t much in his eyes, the Void Land had spent a great deal of money on the Nine Layers Heaven Array, so it wasn’t a bad time to supplement it.
Lu Xue took out her Windmill Carriage Artifact again, and the four of them entered. With Lu Xue leading the way, the remaining three began healing themselves.
Hei He's injuries were very serious, and it would take at least a year or so for him to fully recover. The main reason was because Lu Xue had been unable to hold back when she fought with him, and the sword between her eyebrows had almost killed him on the spot.
Now, even with Lu Xue’s help to disperse the Sword Intent, restoring his healt would be troublesome.
Yang Kai directly grabbed Pu Baixiong, but this time he didn’t pluck the grapes from his head, instead having him stay beside Hei He to help him heal.
Pu Baixiong is a healing Holy Medicine, and the grape on his head was a healing medicine. However, even if he didn’t take the grape, it's body would constantly emit a surging vitality that was greatly beneficial to his recovery.
Seeing this, Hei He couldn’t help sighing in amazement. Only now did he realize that Yang Kai’s evaluation of the things in his hands was not without reason. Compared to this Holy Medicine, the things in his hands could indeed be thrown into a pile of garbage.
