If the Star City was a money tree, then the Auction House and Asura Arena were the thickest branches of this money tree.
The Auction House was the Void Land’s independent business and no one else could interfere with it. In the entire Void Star City, it was the only one and no one else. The Void Land was not satisfied with just holding the Auction House, but now it actually wanted to interfere with the Asura Arena. This appetite was extraordinary.
Yang Kai chuckled, “Is it big? I don’t think so, Old Zhou is a wise man. My Void Star City has only been established for a few months, but it’s already so popular, far from reaching its peak. One can only imagine what kind of future it will have. With a million cultivators gathered here every day, if Asura Heaven were to build the Asura Arena in my Star City, it would be equivalent to setting up a Gold Mine here. I will provide you with venue, no rent, no tax, only for thirty percent share. This is a very fair trade!”
Manager Zhou frowned and said, “Sect Master Yang, the Asura Arena is one of my Asura Heaven’s most important industries and cannot be taken lightly. Can you change the conditions?”
Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “Old Zhou, don’t tell me that the Asura Arena where Asura Heaven is located does not have a share of other forces! As far as I know, in the Asura Arena of Thousand Birds Star City, Great Battle Heaven occupies a large portion, right? Why is it that if Great Battle Heaven can occupy it, my Void Land cannot? Could it be that Asura Heaven looks down on my Void Land?”
Old Zhou hurriedly said, “Sect Master Yang is too serious, this old master has absolutely no such intentions!” Although he was Asura Heaven’s Manager and was also a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage master, in this Void Land, he didn’t dare show the slightest negligence. Many Open Heaven Stage masters had been buried here, and now there were even two Holy Spirits guarding this place, who would dare underestimate them?
If not for this, a Second Class Force wouldn’t have been enough to make Manager Zhou lower himself.
Pondering for a moment, Old Man Zhou said, “Sect Master Yang is right, my Asura Arena does indeed gave some share of the Asura Arena, but no one has ever occupied more than thirty percent of it. Even in Thousand Birds Star City, Great Battle Heaven only occupies twenty percent. How about this, this old master will make the decision and give ten percent share to the Void Land, how is it?”
“Thirty percent, no less!” Yang Kai slowly shook his head.
Old Zhou smiled wryly and said, “Sect Master Yang, the matter of trading is to raise the price on the spot and pay back the money on the spot. If you insist on thirty percent, there’s really no way to negotiate.”
Yang Kai flicked the non-existent dust off his clothes and smiled, “I am willing to let Asura Heaven build the Asura Arena in the Star City because of its name. Everyone knows that using Asura Heaven’s name is convenient to do things. Even if there is no Asura Arena, can’t I set up a similar place in the Star City? En, how about we call it the Blood Battlefield?”
Old Zhou's face twitched slightly as he remained silent.
But then again, if Yang Kai really wanted to build a Blood Battlefield and completely kick out Asura Heaven, there was nothing he could do.
Asura Heaven was one of the 36 Cave Heaven, so perhaps it didn’t care about the existence of an Asura Arena, but Manager Zhou was just a mere Manager. If he could accomplish this task, it would be greatly beneficial to him, so he naturally couldn’t ignore it.
After carefully considering for a moment, Manager Zhou said, “Thirty percent is indeed a bit too much, this old master is unable to make the decision and needs to ask the Higher Ups for instructions, but if Sect Master Yang can agree to this old master’s other condition, this old master can guarantee that the Higher Ups will agree to Sect Master Yang’s proposal.”
“Another condition?” Yang Kai raised his brow slightly.
Manager Zhou smiled, “This is the second matter this old master has come to discuss with Sect Master Yang.”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand, indicating for him to speak.
Manager Zhou coughed lightly, “I heard that your Sect auctioned off two Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pills before, is that true?”
Yang Kai knew this old man was here for the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill, but his expression didn’t change as he secretly laughed in his heart; After waiting for so many days, you’ve finally appeared.
Nodding slightly, he said, “Yes, my Void Land has indeed auctioned off two Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pills!”
Manager Zhou’s expression brightened, “Moreover, the Void Auction House has also announced that every three months, there will be a Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill being auctioned?”
Manger Zhou’s eyes lit up as he asked, “Does that mean your Sect can refine this pill? Could it be that your Sect has found the World Source Liquid?”
As he spoke, Qu Huachang, who had been silent all this time, also stared at Yang Kai, her beautiful eyes shining.
Yang Kai smiled but didn’t answer.
Manager Zhou continued, “Before the Blood Monster Cave Heaven opened, the Red Clouds Auction had auctioned off a Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill and it's pill recipe. According to what I know, this pill was obtained by Sect Master Yang in the end, but Sect Master Yang took it and exchanged it with the Sword Pavilion’s Pavilion Master for a seventh grade Primal Yang Profound Ginseng, leaving behind only the pill recipe… However, the pill recipe required the World Source Liquid to refine the Spirit Pill, and the World Source Liquid had long since gone extinct. Now that the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill has been auctioned off one after another, unless the Void Land finds the World Source Liquid, this old master can’t figure out why there are so many Spirit Pills being auctioned.”
The reason why the Heavenly Yuan Positive Pill was extinct was because of the World Source Liquid. This was a treasure that could only be formed when the world was first formed, so where could one find it now? Unless a new world was formed, there was no chance of it being born.
This kind of thing could not be hidden. Yang Kai had already expected this when he decided to use the Heavenly Yuan Positive Pill to gather the Star City’s popularity.
Taking a sip of tea, Yang Kai smiled and said, “Blood Monster Divine Monarch left a lot of good things in the Blood Monster Divine Palace, including some World Source Liquid.”
Manager Zhou looked at him hesitantly, not knowing whether he should believe him or not, but thinking about it carefully, the timing was right. Yang Kai had obtained the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill and pill recipe before the Blood Monster Cave Heaven opened. After the Blood Monster Cave Heaven had been destroyed, the Star City had sold the Spirit Pills. If Yang Kai had really obtained the World Source Liquid from the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, it was possible.
Not wanting to dwell on this topic any longer, Yang Kai smiled and asked, “Does Asura Heaven also need Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pills?”
Manager Zhou said, “Who wouldn’t want such a pill? Right now, I’m afraid many people from the Cave Heaven Paradise have secretly entered the Star City and are just waiting for the next auction to begin. Sect Master Yang, don’t say you don’t know about this.”
It didn’t matter if other Cave Heaven Paradise snuck in secretly or did something sneaky, but Asura Heaven couldn’t. If they really wanted to build an Asura Arena here, they would have to show their faces sooner or later. Asura Arena was a symbol of Asura Heaven, so Manager Zhou came to visit Yang Kai today.
However, he didn’t know what kind of attitude Yang Kai had towards the Cave Heaven Paradise after the previous battle, so he asked Qu Huachang to help him bring him in.
If Yang Kai refused to see him after he submitted his invitation, wouldn’t that be a loss of face?
Yang Kai put down his teacup and asked bluntly, “How much does Asura Heaven need?”
Manager Zhou chuckled, “Naturally, the more the better.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “Does Old Zhou think Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pills are like cabbages? If it weren’t for the fact that my Void Land needs financial resources and needs to build the Star City, I wouldn’t have sold these Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill. These things are extremely rare, and I don’t have much World Source Liquid in my possession, so it won’t be long before I run out of them.”
Manager Zhou nodded and said, “This old master understands. If Sect Master Yang can sell ten pills to my Asura Heaven, this old master will agree to Sect Master Yang’s request!”
“Ten! Manager Zhou is really asking for too much!” Yang Kai’s face stiffened.
Manager Zhou chuckled, “I definitely won’t take advantage of your Void Land. A single pill is worth eight million, how about it?”
Yang Kai nodded, “The price is fair, but ten is too much for my Void Land to afford.”
Seeing Yang Kai’s expression, Manager Zhou also knew that he was making things difficult for him. If he knew that Yang Kai had even bestowed a Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill to the Second Order Open Heaven for their promotion, he would probably spit out a mouthful of blood. This pill, which was coveted by outsiders, was no different from a cabbage in the Void Land.
“If ten is not possible, then eight, no less.”
“Three at most!”
Manager Zhou was speechless, “Three pills is too little, why must Sect Master Yang be so petty!”
Yang Kai said seriously, “It’s not that I’m petty, I really can’t bring out more.”
Manager Zhou asked, “How about five?”
Yang Kai gently tapped the armrest of his chair and pondered for a long time before finally saying, “Manager Zhou has made a condition, and I also want to make a condition. If Manager Zhou can agree to this condition, then I won’t take thirty percent of the Asura Arena’s share. Not only that, but I can also offer five Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill!”
Manager Zhou’s expression changed when he heard this, “What are Sect Master Yang’s conditions?”
Yang Kai raised a finger, “A High Rank Yin Element resource!”
Manager Zhou’s expression immediately became bitter as he awkwardly said, “Sect Master Yang, aren’t you making things difficult for me?”
Yang Kai replied, “Asura Heaven’s family has a big business, a single High Rank Yin Element resource is nothing more than a drop in the ocean, how could it be making things difficult for you?”
Manager Zhou said, “Sect Master Yang should know that what this old master is referring to is not the value of this high rank resource.” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “Since ancient times, although there have been many conflicts between the 36 Cave Heaven and 72 Paradise, in general, they are still united, especially when it comes to certain issues. Now that the Void Land has two Holy Spirits presiding over it, it is as stable as a rock. I’m afraid no one will have any thoughts about the Void Land, but this does not mean that some people will condone Sect Master Yang directly becoming a High Rank Open Heaven master. If others were to learn that my Asura Heaven provided you with a High Rank Yin Element, how would my Asura Heaven establish itself in these 3000 Worlds?”
Saying so, he continued, “Sect Master Yang is a dragon among men, you should know that taking a step back will allow you to see the vast sky and the vast sea, so why must you risk universal condemnation and challenge the eternal order of the 3000 Worlds? With your aptitude, even if you reach the Sixth Order directly, you will definitely be able to soar above the Nine Heavens in the future. Going against the current is not as good as going along with the flow.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai coldly snorted, “Whose order? Whose flow? I, Yang Kai, only care about my own cultivation. I’ve never provoked anyone, nor have I allowed anyone to obstruct my Great Dao!”
