With thirty percent of the Asura Arena’s share and the Auction House, as well as the rent and taxes from the Star City, Void Land could be said to be earning tens of thousands of gold a day, enough to satisfy its own cultivation needs, so there was no need to worry about its finances failing.
However, a Sixth Grade resource was still a problem. Although this type of Sixth Grade resource was not as rare as a High Rank one, its quantity was definitely not high, and it was not something that could be bought with money. Although Star City was now extremely popular and many people would bring Sixth Grade resources into the Star City for the Void Land to obtain, there were still many people in the Void Land who needed Sixth Grade resources.
The Great Emperors, Yang Kai’s wives, Mo Xiaoqi, Lin Yun’er, Li Wuyi, Yang Yan, and the others all needed Sixth Grade cultivation resources.
Although Yang Kai had made a fortune in the Great Ruins Boundary and obtained a lot of Sixth Grade treasures, he still couldn’t support the demand of so many people.
Originally, Yue He and Mo Mei had both broken through to the Sixth Order and needed Sixth Grade cultivation resources, but now they could only use Open Heaven Pills to slowly accumulate their strength. Refining Open Heaven Pills could allow one’s cultivation to steadily increase, but the efficiency was inferior to directly refining Sixth Grade cultivation resources.
Although the Void Land had been spending a lot of money to purchase Sixth Grade materials, they were still unable to keep up with the pace of consumption, causing Yang Kai to even offer up the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd.
Inside the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd was a Sixth Grade Yuan Magnetic Divine Light. This thing could be considered a Sixth Grade Gold Element and could also be used by cultivators.
From the Great Ruins Boundary, little fatty Xu Zhen had helped Yang Kai refine this Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd, which had played a significant role in Yang Kai’s hands, allowing him to use it as a trump card to deal with powerful enemies. However, now that there was a shortage of sixth grade resources in the Void Land, Yang Kai could only satisfy everyone’s cultivation needs for now. In any case, he had made up his mind not to leave the Void Land easily, so the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd would not be of much use to him for the time being. When he broke through to Open Heaven in the future, this Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd would no longer be useful.
For the Void Land, the last thing they needed to worry about now was a Fifth Grade Resource, because the Gourd Vine could produce a full set of Fifth Grade Resources containing Yin-Yang + Five Elements every month. As long as they waited, Fifth Grade Resources were always enough, so there was no need to purchase Fifth Grade items for the Void Land. On the contrary, there were quite a few Fourth Grade and Third Grade ones.
Star City was steadily developing, and everything in the Void Land was gradually on the right track. As the days passed, Yang Kai’s secluded cultivation also gained him many benefits. He had now refined six different types of power, and in the Yin-Yang + Five Elements, he had yet to condense the Yin Element. Among them, he had comprehended the Golden Crow Sun Casting Divine Ability Manifestation, and he gained Dragon Shield Secret Technique from the Earth Dragon power, enhancing his defensive power, and the Eternal Tree’s essence had also allow him to comprehend the Towering Evergreen, both its defensive and healing properties becoming apparent.
During the days of secluded cultivation, the Water Element had also allowed him to comprehend the Moonlight Water. Although it wasn’t a Divine Ability Manifestation, it was still a Divine Ability Secret Technique that complemented the Golden Crow Sun Casting.
The Gold Element was something Yang Kai had obtained after refining the Golden Wolf King’s Core. While Yang Kai had comprehended the Moonlight Water Divine Ability, he had also gained enlightenment and comprehended a Golden Wolf’s Howling Moon Divine Ability.
Among the six forces he had refined, only the Yang Element had yet allowed him to comprehend any Divine Ability.
However, this Yang Element power was obtained by refining the Primal Yang Profound Ginseng, so Yang Kai didn’t know what he would be able to comprehend in the end, he could only wait.
The Void Auction House held an auction every three months, and each time the finale item was a Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill, it was the tenth time now.
In other words, it had been two or three years since the Void Land migration. For such a long time, whether it was the Void Land or Star City, both had developed quite well. Only Yang Kai’s High Rank Yin Element had remained the same, no news at all.
However, he was already mentally prepared for this, so he wasn’t in a hurry. Not to mention two or three years, even if it was dozens or hundreds of years, he could still continue to wait. He believed that with the Star City here, sooner or later, he would be able to obtain what he wanted.
Originally, this was what he had planned to do, but life was not as he had expected. He had overestimated the patience of some people and underestimated their determination to target him.
While he was cultivating in seclusion, the restriction was activated and Yang Kai opened it. Bian Yuqing quickly walked in, her expression somewhat ugly as she called out, “Sect Master!”
Yang Kai glanced at her and asked, “What is it?”
“There’s news from the harbor saying they found Bai Qi.”
“Old Bai?” Yang Kai frowned, “What happened to Old Bai?”
Bian Yuqing replied, “Bai Qi was seriously injured and fell unconscious. He was taken to the harbor by a ship.”
“What?” Yang Kai suddenly stood up.
More than a year ago, he had sent someone to Thousand Birds Star City to find the Proprietress and invite her to the Void Land as a guest. His original intention was to have the Proprietress open the First Inn in his home Star City so that it would be easier for them to take care of each other and meet. However, after he sent someone, he found out that the Proprietress had not returned to the First Inn after the Blood Monster Cave Heaven incident, so he had no idea where she had gone.
These 3000 Worlds were vast and boundless, with one great domain after another. Yang Kai didn’t know how to find the Proprietress, so he could only give up.
Who would have thought that he would receive news of Bai Qi today? Moreover, he had been seriously injured and was now unconscious!
In any case, Old Bai is a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so anyone who could injure him was at least a Sixth Order, or even a Seventh Order! Moreover, he was the First Inn’s clerk and the Proprietress’ personal attendant, so who would dare act so presumptuously towards him?
Now that he was injured, what about the Proprietress?
Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat as he suddenly felt as if an invisible net was falling on him.
After receiving the news, Yang Kai immediately summoned Yue He and asked her to accompany him to the Star City’s Crossing.
Soon, Yang Kai saw Old Bai. At the ferry, Jin Yuan Lang personally reported the situation. Star City was currently packed with people, and there were many people lining up outside the harbor every day, waiting to enter. However, he had been in charge of the harbor for several years now, so although there were many people, he was able to handle them.
After inspecting one of the ships waiting to enter, the supervisor on the ship reported that there was a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator named Bai Qi on the ship who seemed to know the master of the Void Land.
Jin Yuan Lang didn’t dare delay and quickly went to investigate. Sure enough, it was Bai Qi. He immediately began healing his injuries while sending a message to the Void Land.
By the time Yang Kai arrived, Bai Qi was still unconscious, his face as pale as paper, his aura unstable, and his entire body dripping with blood. The dried blood stains on his clothes had formed a glaring blood stain.
“Sect Master, I’ve already given Brother Bai a Spirit Pill. For now, there is no danger to his life, but…” Jin Yuan Lang stepped forward and whispered to Yang Kai worriedly.
“But what?” Yang Kai asked in a low voice, his face so gloomy it was almost dripping water.
“It’s just that Brother Bai’s consumption was too great, and when he was seriously injured, he didn’t properly heal his injuries. Instead, he overexerted himself, causing the small universe in his body to show signs of instability and the risk of collapse. It’s really hard to say if he can survive this crisis.”
Yang Kai’s expression became even uglier.
If the small universe in the body really collapsed, at best his cultivation would be crippled, and at worst he would die on the spot.
“Is there a solution?” Yang Kai asked.
Jin Yuan Lang slowly shook his head.
Yang Kai turned his head to look at Yue He. People from Ding Feng City didn’t understand this kind of thing, so perhaps Yue He had a way.
Yue He said, “If he could obtain a Star Gathering Universe Pill, it should be able to stabilize the Small Universe in his body! When Open Heaven Stage cultivators fight, there will be situations like Old Bai’s, where the small universe in their body will be unstable. If the situation is minor, it’s fine, but if it’s serious, they will need external help to correct it. The Star Gathering Universe Pill has such an effect, but this pill is somewhat precious and even ordinary Alchemists find it difficult to refine.”
Yang Kai immediately said, “Send word that I am offering a generous reward for a Star Gathering Universe Pill. If anyone has this pill or can refine it, as long as it is within my ability, I can agree to one of his conditions!”
Star City was now filled with talents from all walks of life, with many pharmacies and many Alchemists stationed in the Star City.
If he wanted the Star Gathering Universe Pill, he could only start with the Star City. Yang Kai could only pray that someone in the Star City could sell or refine this pill.
After asking Yue He to look after Old Bai, Yang Kai asked, “Elder Jin, what exactly happened?”
Jin Yuan Lang cupped his fists and said, “Sect Master, this subordinate doesn’t know what happened, but when we were inspecting the ship, someone reported to us that there was a seriously injured person on board called Bai Qi. This subordinate investigated and found that it was really Brother Bai, so I quickly reported it.”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “Since Bai Qi is unconscious, how could the people on the ship know his name is Bai Qi? What about the supervisor of the ship?”
“It’s just outside,” Jin Yuan Lang said as he quickly called for someone to bring the supervisor in.
The supervisor was only a Third Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. As soon as he stepped into the room, he nervously said, “Profound Thunder Sect’s Lu Wenfei greets Sirs!”
Yang Kai turned his head to look at him and observed him carefully. This man’s hair was white, and he seemed to be quite old. The aura around him was obscure, so it was obvious that he had reached the limit of the Third Order Open Heaven Stage. As for the Profound Thunder Sect, it was probably just a Third Class force.
Jin Yuan Land said, “Manager Lu, you don’t need to be afraid. My Void Land won’t bully the weak. I called you here because my Sect Master has some questions to ask.”
Lu Wenfei lowered his head and said, “If Senior has anything to say, please ask. This old master will tell you everything he knows.”
Yang Kai asked, “Manager Lu, I want to know where you rescued this Bai Qi and what happened at that time?”
Lu Wenfei quickly replied, “Reporting to Sir, this old master met him in the Void Territory. At that time, he was in a hurry, but because he was seriously injured and his strength was lacking, his speed was very slow. When this old master asked him to board the ship, he only had time to say his name was Bai Qi and ask me to take him to the Void Land’s Yang Kai before passing out.”
