Yang Kai couldn’t figure out who this Divine Sense belonged to. After all, the four people standing in front of him were all Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, so the difference in strength between them was too great. Yang Kai could vaguely guess that it belonged to Chu Liushan. This old man didn’t have a good relationship with the Proprietress, and he also had a grudge with his disciple Yin Xinzhao, so it wasn’t strange for him to pay attention to him now.
Just as he was making this guess, another Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator he didn’t recognize suddenly spoke up, “Madam Lan, I heard that your First Inn has a little fellow named Yang Kai. Who is he?”
The Proprietress immediately looked over warily, “Is there something you need from him?”
The man chuckled, “There is indeed something I want to ask him.” Turning to Yang Kai, he asked, “If I’m not mistaken, it should be you, right?”
He really didn’t know who Yang Kai was, but although there were many Emperor Realm present, Yang Kai’s aura was obviously different from the others, so it wasn’t strange for others to notice.
Having been called out, Yang Kai couldn’t be bothered to hide his identity. There were many people who knew him, so there was no point in hiding, so he immediately asked, “Yes, who might you be, what advice do you have?”
The man smiled and nodded, “You may not know me, but let me introduce myself. I am the Union Master of Heavenly Sword Union, Kong Feng.”
Heavenly Sword Union? This guy was actually not from the Cave Heaven Paradise? When Yang Kai saw him standing together with Guo Nu, Chu Liushan, and Senior Brother Mao, he had thought he was from some Cave Heaven Paradise, but now he knew he was the Union Master of Heavenly Sword Union.
However, Heavenly Sword Union was also a top Second Class force, so their Union Master was indeed qualified to stand here. After all, whether it was Guo Nu, Chu Liushan, or Senior Brother Mao, both of them weren’t too powerful in their respective Sects and could only be considered mid-level.
However, knowing that he was from Heavenly Sword Union, Yang Kai immediately thought of the few Heavenly Sword Union disciples he had killed. Was this guy here to seek justice for his own disciples? No, at that time, besides Qu Huachang and Zhang Ruoxi, there was only one other disciple named Du Xu from Lang Ya Paradise.
The few cultivators from Heavenly Sword Union had chased after Zhang Ruoxi and Du Xu, causing them to be killed.
It was impossible for Qu Huachang and Zhang Ruoxi to expose this matter, could it be Du Xu?
Sure enough, the smile on Kong Feng’s face suddenly disappeared as he asked, “I heard you killed a few of our Union’s outstanding disciples in Blood Monster Cave Heaven?”
Yang Kai was furious. Sure enough, Du Xu had leaked the news, otherwise Kong Feng wouldn’t have known about it. This man really deserved to die. In the face of such a crisis, he didn’t care about the safety of his Junior Sister and ran away alone. Yang Kai had saved his life, but he didn’t expect that in the end, he would be betrayed by him. If he had known that Du Xu was such a despicable villain, how could Yang Kai have spared his life? He would have killed him long ago. [Hoogs: well, it was obvious YK. What do you expect?]
Without waiting for Yang Kai to speak, the Proprietress coldly snorted, “Union Master Kong, you can eat whatever you want, but there are some things you can’t say. You said that Yang Kai killed several of your Heavenly Sword Union disciples, where is the evidence?” She was also certain that Kong Feng had no evidence, so she asked this question.
Unexpectedly, Kong Feng said lightly, “Naturally, there is evidence. Since someone told me about this matter, this Kong believes that this person is not making irresponsible remarks and is only here to confirm it.”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “Your Heavenly Sword Union’s disciples are greedy for money and want to bully us with numbers. If we kill them, so be it. What are you going to do?”
Kong Feng didn’t expect Yang Kai to be so unyielding, so he couldn’t help glancing at him again and nodding slightly, “It’s good that you admit it, it saves this King the trouble of talking. Since ancient times, debts must be repaid with money, and murder must be repaid with one’s life. You killed a few of my Heavenly Sword Union’s core disciples, causing my Heavenly Sword Union to suffer a great loss and losing its pillar of support. Do you think this King should avenge them?”
The Proprietress didn’t move, but her peak Sixth Order aura had already spread out, her eyes narrowing slightly, “Try it!”
Kong Feng glanced at the Proprietress and lightly said, “Madam Lan’s prestige is not to be underestimated, this Kong is not a match for her, nor is he willing to fight with Madam. If this child has nothing to do with Madam, this Kong will take his life and return justice to my Heavenly Sword Union’s disciples, but since Madam wants to protect this child, this Kong will naturally give Madam some face. As long as this child compensates a little, this matter can be resolved. What does Madam think?”
The Proprietress's brow wrinkled as she faintly felt that this Kong Feng didn’t have any good intentions, otherwise he wouldn’t have brought up the matter of his disciple being killed at this time. However, she didn’t know what he was up to, so she asked cautiously, “How do you want to compensate? Yang Kai is just a mere Emperor Realm, what can he compensate you with?”
Kong Feng chuckled, “There’s no need to worry about these, this Kong will discuss it with him.” Turning to Yang Kai, he asked, “Do you have any objections?”
Yang Kai’s heart was filled with anger. If he was strong enough, why would he waste time talking to him? The several Heavenly Sword Union disciples had been killed by him because they had been trying to kill Zhang Ruoxi. Now, this Kong Feng had come to talk about justice with him, it was simply laughable.
But now that he was standing here, it was all thanks to the Proprietress's protection. If things were to become awkward, it would only implicate her.
Suppressing his anger, Yang Kai coldly asked, “What do you want?”
Kong Feng calmly replied, “Don’t worry, you definitely have what I want, and it won’t harm you in the slightest.” Suddenly, he stopped talking and sent a sound transmission, “I want that Seventh Grade Gold Element Monster Beast Core!”
Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed as his first reaction was to wonder how this guy knew he had a Seventh Grade Monster Beast Core and even knew it was Gold Element.
However, he quickly understood that he knew he had killed a few disciples of Heavenly Sword Union because Du Xu had informed him, and he knew about the Seventh Grade Gold Element Core because the Old Hong from Horizon tell him about it.
So this was his goal!
Yang Kai didn’t even think about it before decisively saying, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” If he had wanted something else, perhaps there would have been some discussion, and Yang Kai might have been able to get his hands on it. However, he definitely couldn’t hand over the Seventh Grade Gold Element Core. This concerned his future achievements. If he lost this Core here, who knows how long it would take him to obtain it again.
Kong Feng narrowed his eyes slightly, “Boy, you must think carefully before answering.”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “I was wondering why those Heavenly Sword Union disciples acted so despicably, but it turns out because 'a crooked stick will have a crooked shadow'.”
Kong Feng looked at him deeply and said, “I hope you won’t regret this.”
Saying so, he stopped transmitting his voice and instead said, “Although a Seventh Grade Core is a treasure, you’re only an Emperor Realm, don’t you think this thing is too hot?”
“Seventh Grade Core?” Guo Nu and Chu Liushan both called out in unison and immediately turned to look at Yang Kai. Even Senior Brother Mao glanced at Yang Kai in surprise, obviously unaware of this.
Seventh Grade Core were extremely rare. This time, after the collapse of the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, all the resources inside had been taken out, but according to what they knew, someone had killed a Seventh Order Earth Element Monster Beast and obtained a Seventh Grade Core. Other than that, no other Seventh Grade Core had appeared.
Now, they had actually heard news about a Seventh Grade Core.
Chu Liushan frowned and asked, “Brother Kong, are you saying that this child has a Seventh Grade Core?”
Kong Feng stared deeply at Yang Kai and said, “Yes, this child’s luck is quite good. He killed a Seventh Order Gold Element Monster Beast and obtained a Gold Element Core.”
Guo Nu frowned, “Brother Kong, how do you know about this? Moreover… what ability does he have to kill a Seventh Order Monster Beast?”
Kong Feng chuckled, “Brother Guo doesn’t need to be suspicious, this Kong has his own sources of information regarding this matter, but this matter can’t be wrong. I can guarantee that this child definitely has a Seventh Grade Core on him.” Pausing for a moment, Kong Feng said with malicious intent, “I’ve heard that this child’s ambitions are lofty, and he intends to achieve High Rank Open Heaven directly. He has already condensed quite a bit of Open Heaven force, so if he were to refine that Gold Element Core, I’m afraid he won’t be far from breaking through, right?” Turning to Chu Liushan, he cupped his fists and said, “I must congratulate Brother Chu, Xuanyuan Cave Heaven will have another talent!”
Chu Liushan’s face became extremely ugly. If Yang Kai really was a member of Xuanyuan Cave Heaven, he would have laughed even in his dreams, but Yang Kai wasn’t. Although the First Inn and Xuanyuan Cave Heaven had some kind of relationship, it wasn’t a relationship between a superior and a subordinate. Moreover, Lan Youruo had always been at odds with him, and his disciple had a life and death grudge with this Yang Kai. If Yang Kai really managed to break through to High Rank Open Heaven, how could he have a good life?
Such a thing was absolutely forbidden!
Looking at Yang Kai, Chu Liushan coldly said, “Hand it over!”
Yang Kai glanced at him, “Who do you think you are?”
“Junior is too presumptuous!” Chu Liushan’s face sank.
The Proprietress stepped forward and shouted, “Old dog is too arrogant!”
Chu Liushan was furious, “Lan Youruo!”
Guo Nu quickly stepped forward to smooth things over and stood between the two of them, lest they really start fighting, “Alright, alright, both of you calm your anger and speak less.” Turning to the Proprietress, he said, “Junior Sister Lan, it’s not that you don’t know about this boy’s current situation, but having this Seventh Grade Core on him is not a good thing.”
The Proprietress coldly snorted, “If you want to take it by force, why bother finding some dignified excuse?”
Guo Nu said angrily, “Junior Sister, what are you saying? We’re not trying to snatch his things. If he really has a Seventh Grade Core, we can buy it. Just let him name a price, as long as it’s reasonable, Senior Brother will definitely not bargain.”
The Proprietress said, “Leaving aside whether or not he has a Seventh Grade Core, even if he did, it wouldn’t be your Xuanyuan Cave Heaven's property!” Turning to Yang Kai, she asked, “Do you have a Seventh Grade Core?”
Yang Kai decisively replied, “Nonsense!”
Chu Liushan coldly snorted, “We’ll know if there is one when we check it!”
“You dare!” The Proprietress glared at Chu Liushan.
Chu Liushan said lightly, “It doesn’t matter who has the Seventh Grade Core, but it absolutely cannot be with this boy. This matter is of great importance and cannot be taken lightly. Lan Youruo, I advise you not to make a mistake!”
The Proprietress smiled angrily, “If you want to fight, this Queen will accompany you, what’s the point of being so long-winded?” As soon as she finished speaking, the World Force lingered around her.
