Manager Zhou said with a bitter expression, “Sect Master Yang, can you change your condition?”
Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “There’s no need to ask for anything else!”
Manager Zhou smiled bitterly and muttered to himself for a long time before finally saying, “This matter is of great importance, this old master is unable to make a decision and needs to ask the higher ups. However, Sect Master Yang, I feel that the higher ups will most likely not agree to this matter.”
Yang Kai said, “Manager Zhou only needs to ask for instructions, whether they agree or not is their business.”
“Then… alright.” Now that things had reached this point, there was no need to continue this conversation. Each of them had already made their own demands and conditions, and the only thing left to do was to see if both sides could reach an agreement on certain issues. This was not something Manager Zhou could make a decision on, so he immediately stood up and said, “There’s no time to lose, this old master will handle this matter now and will take his leave.”
Yang Kai personally escorted him out of the Void Land before returning.
Qu Huachang is wrapped in a sweet fragrance and rushed over to Yang Kai’s side. Without any hesitation, she stretched out her hand and grabbed his arm, pressing against his elbow as she sweetly called out, “Junior Brother…”
Yang Kai glanced at her and said with a headache, “Senior Sister, if you have something to say, just say it. If I can agree, I won’t refuse!”
Qu Huachang smiled sweetly and whispered into Yang Kai’s ear, “I knew Junior Brother is the best, the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill…”
Yang Kai pulled his arm out of Qu Huachang’s embrace and stood facing her, smiling, “Before Senior Sister speaks, I ask Senior Sister to confirm whether she has come to my Void Land for herself or for Yin-Yang Cave Heaven.”
Qu Huachang’s long eyelashes fluttered, “Is there a difference?”
Yang Kai smiled slightly, “Senior Sister, why ask when you already know the answer?”
“Junior Brother, you’re really heartless,” Qu Huachang said with a bitter expression, like a weak woman who had been abandoned by Yang Kai, “Why do you have to ask such a cruel question? Junior Brother has forgotten how we snuggle in the Blood Monster Cave Heaven.”
Yang Kai said seriously, “It’s precisely because I remember it that I have to ask.”
Qu Huachang rolled her eyes at him flirtatiously. This woman was like an enchantress to begin with, but now that she had broken through to the Open Heaven, she became even more enchanting, her eyes able to capture one’s soul…
Yang Kai sat down and drank his tea, not looking at her.
Qu Huachang couldn’t hold back her anger and sat down next to him, puffing up her cheeks as she said, “Since Junior Brother wants to be impartial, let’s discuss official matters first!”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand.
Qu Huachang said, “My Yin-Yang Cave Heaven wants to buy some Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill from Junior Brother!”
“No!” Yang Kai replied.
Qu Huachang glared at him fiercely and slammed the table, “Just now you said to Old Zhou that you can sell three pill to Asura Heaven!”
Yang Kai slowly said, “That’s the last stock I can take out.”
Qu Huachang’s chest rose and fell as she gnashed her teeth, “The price will definitely not be a lost to Junior Brother, I can make the decision.”
Yang Kai thought for a moment before smiling, “If Yin-Yang Cave Heaven can sell me a High Rank Yin Element resource…”
“Junior Brother, just give up, those old fogies will never agree to your conditions,” Qu Huachang said helplessly, “Even if you offer a higher price, it won’t do!”
Yang Kai raised his brow, “Senior Sister is so certain?”
Qu Huachang nodded lightly, “I don’t dare to say anything else, but in this matter, Old Zhou is right. The attitude of all the Cave Heaven Paradise is the same. It is impossible for anyone to sell a High Rank Yin Element resource to you.”
Yang Kai frowned deeply.
Seeing Yang Kai’s depressed mood, Qu Huachang also slightly regretted speaking too harshly and changed the subject, “Junior Brother, what if Senior Sister want the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal?”
Yang Kai casually asked, “How much does Senior Sister need?”
Qu Huachang looked at him suspiciously, “Do you have many of these?”
Yang Kai smiled slightly, “Not much, but it should be enough to satisfy Senior Sister’s needs.”
Qu Huachang said hesitantly, “Five… no, three is enough.”
As soon as she finished speaking, Yang Kai placed a jade bottle in front of her. Qu Huachang picked it up and opened it, only to see five Spirit Pills inside. Although she had never seen such Spirit Pill before, she was certain that these were the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill.
Looking at Yang Kai in a daze, Qu Huachang said, “Junior Brother, you…” Now that she reached Open Heaven, she naturally didn’t need these Spirit Pills. Now that she had spoken, it was obvious she was talking for the Yin-Yang Cave Heaven. It was impossible for Yang Kai not to know this, but he still took out five Spirit Pills.
Yang Kai said, “In the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, if it weren’t for Senior Sister’s strong support to escape from Yin Xinzhao’s pursuit, I’m afraid I would have died a long time ago. It’s difficult to repay a life-saving favor, so a few Spirit Pills are nothing. Since Senior Sister has already spoken, as her Junior Brother, how can I refuse?”
Qu Huachang’s face was filled with gratitude as she gripped the jade bottle in her hand tightly, “Junior Brother, thank you!”
Putting away the jade bottle, Qu Huachang continued, “There is one more thing I need Junior Brother’s help with!”
“Senior Sister, please speak.”
“This time, I came here under the orders of my Master to set up a training hall in your Void Star City, but I came a bit late and the better spots were all taken by others, so…”
Yang Kai nodded in understanding, but he was also a bit puzzled, “Why is Yin-Yang Cave Heaven setting up a training hall? Could it be that it’s opening its doors to accept disciples? But there’s no need to do this in the Star City, right?”
Qu Huachang pursed her lips and smiled, “You should have some understanding of my Yin-Yang Cave Heaven's situation. Disciples, regardless of whether they are male or female, need to find a partner when the time is right. However, how difficult is it to find a partner who is suitable for you and can accompany you for the rest of your life? Even if there is someone you like, they may not be willing to marry into the Yin-Yang Cave Heaven.”
Saying so, she glanced at Yang Kai.
Yang Kai looked down and pretended not to see anything.
“As such, some of my Yin-Yang Cave Heaven's outstanding disciples need to go out to temper themselves and discuss the Dao with their peers in various training halls, using this opportunity to find a good spouse.”
“So that’s how it is!” Yang Kai nodded in understanding. Yin-Yang Cave Heaven wanted to use this opportunity to gain more followers and enhance their own strength, “This is easy, I’ll have Second Manager accompany you later, you can choose your own position.”
“In that case, I’ll have to thank Junior Brother first,” Qu Huachang expressed her gratitude and paused for a moment before pursing her lips and smiling, “Now that we’ve finished our business discussion, let’s discuss some private matters.”
Yang Kai looked at her suspiciously, “Is there anything else, Senior Sister?”
Qu Huachang’s face turned slightly red as she shyly replied, “Did Junior Brother forget what I told you in Blood Monster Cave Heaven? Those words are still valid now, if you agree…”
The way she acted like a little girl really made people stare.
Yang Kai had wanted to ask what was going on, but after seeing her expression, he understood everything. In the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, Qu Huachang had represented Yin-Yang Cave Heaven to recruit Yang Kai, and she had said she wanted him to marry into the Yin-Yang Cave Heaven, but the prerequisite was that he could only be promoted to the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage.
However, at that time, Qu Huachang was still an Emperor Realm and had yet to break through to the Open Heaven Stage, she want to fall in love with Yang Kai before severing her emotions and cultivate the Heartless Dao.
Now that she was already a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, what was the point of mentioning this?
Qu Huachang continued, “If Junior Brother can become my partner, there is no need for you to marry into Yin-Yang Cave Heaven. You are now the master of the Void Land, so all we need to do is maintain our status. If you want to stay in the Void Land, you can stay here. If you want to go to the Yin-Yang Cave Heaven, you can.”
Yang Kai looked at her and asked, “Is this your own idea, or Yin-Yang Cave Heaven's?”
Qu Huachang lowered her head and twisted the corner of her clothes, gently saying, “It doesn’t matter who it is, what matters is what Junior Brother thinks.”
Yang Kai's heart was moved, knowing that Yin-Yang Cave Heaven didn’t have such intentions. This was completely Qu Huachang’s own idea. She wanted to use Yin-Yang Cave Heaven to protect him, even sacrificing her own reputation.
He quickly stood up and bowed, “Junior Brother appreciates Senior Sister’s kind intentions, but… Junior Brother is only one step away. If he cannot take this step, his Dao heart will definitely be covered in dust. Even if he becomes a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage, it will be difficult for him to continue.”
Hearing this, Qu Huachang sighed lightly. Although she had already expected this, hearing Yang Kai say this, she still couldn’t help feeling a bit disappointed. Lifting her head, she smiled and said, “Junior Brother has a firm heart towards the Dao, Senior Sister admires you. In the future, I will be stationed here in the Star City, and perhaps I will come to your Void Land often. When the time comes, don’t think it will be too troublesome.”
Yang Kai smiled, “I couldn’t ask for more, how could I find it troublesome?”
Qu Huachang stood up and said, “Then I’ll take my leave first. I’ll come find you after I’ve settled the matters at the training hall.”
Yang Kai stood up to see her off while simultaneously sending a message to Bian Yuqing, asking her to accompany Qu Huachang to the Viceroy’s mansion and help her choose the location for the training hall.
After making the necessary arrangements, Yang Kai went back into seclusion.
However, before he could begin cultivating, he noticed that the restriction had been activated. Frowning slightly, he opened it and Bian Yuqing walked in, bowing respectfully, “Sect Master!”
“Has Qu Huachang’s matter been arranged?” Yang Kai asked.
Bian Yuqing said, “En, everything has been arranged.” Saying so, she took out a wooden box and handed it to Yang Kai.
“What is this?” Yang Kai asked suspiciously.
Bian Yuqing looked at him in confusion, “Isn’t this something Sect Master left behind? Disciple saw it while cleaning the guest hall and thought it was something Sect Master had accidentally left behind, so he gave it to me.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “Why would I leave something behind? It should be Senior Sister Qu’s. You should go back and deliver this box.”
Bian Yuqing said, “Sect Master, if this is something that belonged to that Miss Qu, then we can’t give it back. This should be something she gave you. She is a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator after all, how could she leave behind a box for no reason?”
When Yang Kai heard this, he thought about it for a moment. Ever since Qu Huachang entered the guest hall, he had not seen her take out this box. After she left, the disciple discovered this box, it was obviously left behind by Qu Huachang.
Her current cultivation was many times higher than Yang Kai’s, so if she really did something, it would be difficult for Yang Kai to discover. If it weren’t for the fact that the disciples had seen her while cleaning the guest hall, it was likely they would have no idea.
“The things inside this box should be very valuable!” Bian Yuqing said casually.
