Yang Kai had thought he was going to ask for his help with something else, but it turned out to be this. He couldn’t help laughing, “Brother Bu can tell Great Chief Commander Ye about this himself, but I don’t think Great Chief Commander will believe it.”
Bu Lianzhong frowned, “Brother Yang, it’s just a trivial matter, it won’t take you much time or harm your interests, why would you refuse?”
The other four also frowned at him.
Yang Kai understood that he had misunderstood, so he didn’t bother explaining. His figure flashed, directly passing through the surrounding space cracks and standing in front of Bu Lianzhong.
Bu Lianzhong was startled and couldn’t help taking a few steps back, staring at him in shock, “You… how did you get in?”
They had been trapped here for half a day, it wasn’t that they hadn’t tried to leave this place, it was just that they had no way of determining where it was safe. After several attempts, three of them had been injured and were unable to move, but just now Yang Kai had easily barged in, as if the space crack that had been bothering them didn’t exist.
Wasn’t this person’s luck a bit too good? Just now, when he was speeding through the swamp, he hadn’t encountered any danger, and now he had easily broken into this dangerous place. It was a miracle that he was still alive.
Yang Kai smiled and didn’t say anything more. He simply circulated his Emperor Qi and wrapped the five of them up. Before Bu Lianzhong and the others could react, Yang Kai’s figure flashed and the five of them flew out of the Space Crack.
“Brother Bu, you should report to the Great Chief Commander yourself,” Yang Kai nodded towards him.
Bu Lianzhong and the others were all stunned as they all turned their heads to look around, confirming that they were no longer in the same position they had been, but a few dozen zhangs away before revealing looks of surprise and joy.
Bu Lianzhong’s heart twitched as he stared at Yang Kai in surprise, “Brother Yang can see those Space Cracks? Could it be that Brother Yang has cultivated the Space Law?”
Yang Kai replied, “A little!”
Bu Lianzhong couldn’t help but sigh. Bringing the five of them out so easily wasn’t something that could be explained with just a little bit of understanding. This was something that could only be accomplished by someone with extremely high attainments in the Dao of Space. He suddenly understood that the other party wasn’t just lucky to be able to travel through this swamp, there was simple no fear at all.
“Many thanks, Brother Yang!” Bu Lianzhong cupped his fists, and the other four behind him also cupped their fists in thanks.
“It’s nothing,” Yang Kai waved his hand, “This swamp is dangerous and full of hidden dangers, but why isn’t it marked on the map?”
He had a map he had won from the Red Clouds Auction, and the Great Battle Heaven disciples definitely had one as well. The map not only showed the route, but also the dangers and opportunities, all of which were the fruits of many generations of cultivators's exploration.
However, the map in Yang Kai’s hand only had the symbol of this swamp, but there was no warning of danger. He estimated that the map in the hands of Great Battle Heaven’s group was the same, or else they wouldn't have fallen into such dire straits.
Bu Lianzhong said, “The Blood Mosnter Cave Heaven is unstable, so the situation inside will sometimes change. There shouldn’t have been any danger here two hundred years ago, so these changes should have only appeared in the last two hundred years, which is why the map isn’t marked. Brother Yang, although that map is good, you can’t trust it completely. What we encountered was a great example, so we should be careful in the future.”
Yang Kai nodded, “Brother Bu is right!” Turning his head to look at Bu Lianzhong, he asked, “Where do you want to go?”
Bu Lianzhong pointed in a certain direction.
Yang Kai smiled and said, “It seems we’re on the way, let’s go.” Saying so, he led the way.
Bu Lianzhong and the others glanced at each other before quickly following Yang Kai. Since Yang Kai could easily bring them out of the space crack, it shouldn’t be a problem to bring them out of this swamp.
Naturally, they didn’t want to miss this opportunity.
He didn’t know if the Great Battle Heaven Disciples were all silent or not, but along the way, Bu Lianzhong and the others didn’t speak much. Even if there were occasional conversations, Yang Kai was the first to start a conversation.
After chatting for a while, he learned that these five people had entered the swamp from another direction. At first, they didn’t encounter any danger, but by the time they realized something was wrong and wanted to retreat, it was already too late. If they hadn’t been lucky enough to run into Yang Kai, they really would have died in the swamp.
Although they didn’t say much, the gratitude in their hearts couldn’t be expressed in words. After all, this was a life-saving grace. The Great Battle Heaven’s Disciple had always been straightforward and upright, always repaying kindness and taking revenge accordingly.
Bringing the five of them along, their speed didn’t decrease in the slightest, and after half a day, they left the swamp.
Bu Lianzhong and the others all let out a sigh of relief. This feeling of not having their lives under their control was too terrible, and they would never want to experience it again.
“Since we’ve escaped from this dangerous place, we’ll part ways here,” Yang Kai cupped his fists towards Bu Lianzhong and the others. Bringing them out was just a matter of convenience. Treasure hunting was better done alone, so no matter what kind of treasure he found, he could keep it for themselves.
Bu Lianzhong returned the gesture and said, “Brother Yang’s kindness today is engraved in the hearts of all five of us fellow disciples. In the future, we will definitely repay you generously.” Pausing for a moment, his expression suddenly became extremely solemn, “Brother Yang, you must be careful and not trust others blindly.”
Yang Kai frowned slightly, feeling that there was a hidden meaning behind his words. Just as he was about to ask, he suddenly heard a cry for help coming from afar.
Everyone quickly turned around and saw two figures flying towards them, one in front and the other behind. One of them was constantly launching fierce attacks, causing the person in front to sway back and forth.
It was likely that they had discovered Yang Kai and the others. The man who was being chased shouted for help as he rushed towards them. In just a few breaths, he had arrived, revealing a pale face.
After stumbling to the ground, he quickly called out for help, “Senior Brothers, save me!”
Yang Kai, Bu Lianzhong, and the others all stared at him silently. They didn’t say they would save him, nor did they say they wouldn’t save him. The main reason was because they didn’t know this man’s background or what kind of grudge he had with others, so it wasn’t appropriate for them to interfere.
However, seeing this person fall down, the cultivator chasing after him also stopped and glanced over from afar, seemingly seeing through the origins of Great Battle Heaven and the others, coldly snorting before turning around and leaving.
The clothes worn by the people from Great Battle Heaven were simply too unique, so it was difficult to not recognize them. With the reputation of the 36 Cave Heaven placed here, no one was willing to casually clash with the people from Great Battle Heaven.
Seeing the person chasing after him quickly leave, the cultivator who had asked for help finally let out a sigh of relief and fell to the ground, as if all of his strength had been drained from his body.
After a while, he struggled to his feet and cupped his fists towards Yang Kai and the others, “Many thanks, Senior Brothers.”
Bu Lianzhong said, “No need, we didn’t do anything.”
The man said, “Although Senior Brothers didn’t do anything, Junior Brother also knows that it was all because of you that I was able to survive. If I hadn’t coincidentally run into you here, that person would never have stopped.”
Bu Lianzhong waved his hand, “Since you’ve survived, you should rest well. Now that Blood Monster Cave Heaven is filled with danger, with your current condition, I’m afraid you won’t be able to do anything.”
The man’s expression became gloomy as he smiled wryly, “Senior Brother is right, I’m going to find a place to recuperate, but before I leave, I would like to inform everyone that someone has discovered a Blood Monster Divine Monarch's inheritance about an hour’s journey in that direction. Many people have gathered there for that inheritance, so if Senior Brothers are interested, you can take a look.”
“The Blood Monster Divine Monarch's inheritance?” Yang Kai, Bu Lianzhong, and the others were all shocked.
The man said, “That’s what they said, but I don’t know if it’s true or not. I just took a glance from the side and saw someone trying to take my life, probably because they were afraid the news would leak out and attract more people to explore.”
Yang Kai and Bu Lianzhong looked at each other and saw the excitement in each other’s eyes. If what this man said was true, this was a huge treasure trove that would definitely cause a bloody storm in Blood Monster Cave Heaven.
The man said, “I don’t know much about the situation over there. If Senior Brothers are interested, you can go investigate. Junior Brother will take his leave first.”
Saying so, the man bowed and quickly left.
Yang Kai, Bu Lianzhong, and the others watched him disappear before Bu Lianzhong asked, “What does Brother Yang say?”
Yang Kai licked his lips and said, “Since it might be the Blood Monster Divine Monarch's inheritance, I should naturally go and take a look.” If he could find the Seventh Grade resources he needed inside, his trip to Blood Monster Cave Heaven would be complete. Even if that person was lying, it wouldn’t matter. It would only be a hour journey.
Bu Lianzhong nodded, “I think so too.”
In the face of such great benefits, no one could resist the temptation. Since they had decided to explore, no one hesitated and immediately flew in the direction the man pointed.
An hour later, Yang Kai suddenly frowned and turned his head to ask, “Brother Bu, did you notice anything?”
Bu Lianzhong also wore a solemn expression, “The smell of blood!”
Yang Kai nodded. He could also smell the scent of blood, but it gave off a strange feeling, not like the aura of someone who had been killed. Moreover, the further he went, the denser the smell of blood became, as if even the World Energy had become sticky.
After an hour, the six of them stopped and stared blankly ahead.
In front of them, there was a huge blood-colored lake that occupied a hundred kilometer radius. The lake water was dark red and seemed to be filled with fresh blood. The surface of the lake was calm and without any ripples, but anyone who saw it would feel a chill run down their spine, as if countless demons were about to emerge from it at any moment.
At this moment, there were at least a few hundred people gathered on the shore of the Blood Lake, some in groups of three or five, some alone. Many of them were scattered around the lake, staring at the center of the lake, while more were gathered in front of a giant stone tablet, looking up at something.
Yang Kai looked around and saw that in the middle of the lake, there was a simple and unadorned palace. He couldn’t help thinking, Is that the Blood Monster Divine Palace? The place where the Blood Monster Divine Monarch's inheritance is hidden?
But that was not right.
According to the rumors, the Blood Monster Divine Monarch's inheritance was indeed hidden inside the Blood Monster Divine Palace, but the Blood Monster Divine Palace was located deep inside the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, so it was impossible for it to appear here.
However, regardless of whether the palace contained the Blood Monster Divine Monarch's inheritance or not, for it to appear in such a place meant that there must be something hidden inside. Countless cultivators were eagerly waiting to explore it.
