“After hearing this person mention Sect Master Yang’s name, this old master didn’t dare be negligent, so this old master rushed over to the harbor and reported this matter to Sir Jin.”
“Is that all?” Yang Kai asked solemnly.
Lu Wenfei quickly said, “Sect Master Yang is wise, this old master does not dare to conceal anything.”
Yang Kai observed his expression and nodded slightly, “I understand.”
He ordered his subordinates to take Lu Wenfei away and reward him with some treasures before instructing his subordinates to monitor his movements.
Jin Yuan Lang said thoughtfully, “Sect Master is suspecting that this Profound Thunder Sect…”
“It’s just a precaution, but they shouldn’t have anything to do with Old Bai, it’s just a coincidence.”
Whether it was related or not, as long as Old Bai woke up, everything would be clear. However, Old Bai’s current situation was not very optimistic, so Yang Kai carefully put him away in his Wishful Bag and brought him back to the Void Land. At the same time, he sent a message to the Star City’s Viceroy’s Mansion and had Mo Mei personally issue a bounty to search for the Star Gathering Universe Pill.
Inside the secret room, Old Bai lay on the bed, still unconscious, his breathing weak and his aura weak.
Yue He carefully circulated her World Force to help Old Bai adjust the power of the small universe in his body so that his injuries wouldn’t worsen. Meanwhile, Yang Kai used his Wood Element to heal Old Bai’s injuries.
Yang Kai really didn’t know where the Proprietress had gone over the past two years. Logically speaking, the Hundred Force Alliance’s invasion of the Void Land had long since spread throughout the 3000 Worlds. With the Proprietress’ personality, if she had known about this, she would have come to the Void Land to investigate.
However, she never showed up. When Yang Kai sent people to Thousand Birds Star City to invite the Proprietress over, she was nowhere to be seen.
After parting ways since the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, where had she gone? What had she encountered? What was Old Bai’s injury?
If Old Bai didn’t wake up, everything would be shrouded in fog.
Two days later, good news came from the Star City’s Viceroy’s Mansion. In the Star City, there was an Alchemy Grandmaster who could refine Star Gathering Universe Pill. Yang Kai was overjoyed. Over the past few days, he had been healing Old Bai’s injuries. With his Wood Element’s help, Old Bai’s injuries had improved a lot and his aura had also stabilized a lot, but if he didn’t resolve the issue of the Small Universe in his body, there would always be a hidden danger. Even if Old Bai woke up, he could die at any moment.
These past two days, Yang Kai had been deeply worried, but now he finally heard some good news.
He immediately ordered someone to invite him, but soon, Mo Mei sent a message back saying that although this Alchemist was willing to refine pills for the Void Land, he had one condition: he needed the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill recipe and a World Source Liquid to refine a hundred bottles of Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal!
Mo Mei was extremely annoyed. The only reason Void Star City was so popular now was because of the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill. This kind of pill could only be found in the Void Land, and if it was obtained by someone else, it would greatly affect the Star City’s future development.
The Alchemist had obviously noticed this point, which was why he had made such an outrageous request.
Yang Kai’s heart was filled with hatred, but he didn’t hesitate to reply, “Agree to it!”
It wasn’t a big deal for the Heavenly Yuan Seal Pill's recipe to be leaked, the key was the World Source Liquid. However, a hundred portions of World Source Liquid could only refine a hundred Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill in total. Although the quantity was not small, it was nothing compared to Old Bai’s life.
After sending this message, Yang Kai sent another message over, “Tell that Alchemy Master that he can have the pill recipe. But there are only ten portions of World Source Liquid. If he wants it, he can have it, but don’t try to pull down!”
It wasn’t that he was unwilling to part with the World Source Liquid, he had a lot of it on hand, but if he were to agree to such an outrageous request, it would expose his background and would be detrimental to his future plans.
If the other party refused, there was no harm in continuing the negotiation.
After waiting for less than an incense stick of time, Mo Mei sent a message back.
The Alchemist agreed!
Most likely, he also felt that the World Source Liquid was extremely precious, so if he were to ask for a hundred portions, it would be like asking for a lion’s share, allowing the Void Land to bargain for ten portions only.
Agreeing was one thing, but the other party wasn’t willing to come to the Void Land to refine pills, only refining pills in the Star City before making a deal.
He was probably afraid that the Void Land would act against him. After all, if he coveted the Heaven Yuan Positive Seal Pill's recipe, it would be equivalent to offending the Void Land. If he really came to the Void Land’s headquarter, wouldn’t his life and death be controlled by the Void Land?
This wasn’t a big deal, so Yang Kai agreed.
Refining the Star Gathering Universe Pill would take a few days, and it wasn’t something that could be done overnight. After all, he still needed to find various herbs. Fortunately, Star City’s current goods were all-encompassing, so it wasn’t difficult to collect them.
Yang Kai was now extremely glad that he had made great efforts to develop the Star City. Otherwise, how could he have gone to find an Alchemist who could refine the Star Gathering Universe Pill and collect all kinds of herbs?
Two days later, Old Bai woke up!
At that time, Yang Kai was healing him when he suddenly noticed that Old Bai’s breathing had become heavier, causing his eyelids to twitch slightly as he hurriedly called out to him.
Old Bai actually opened his eyes just like that, and when he saw Yang Kai, he grabbed his arm and clenched his teeth, “Proprietress is in trouble, save her!”
Yang Kai’s heart sank as he suppressed the uneasiness in his heart and comforted, “If you have something to say, say it slowly. Your injuries are quite serious, so your mood shouldn’t fluctuate too much.”
Old Bai took a few deep breaths before lying down on his bed and narrating the events of the past two years.
After the Blood Monster Cave Heaven came to an end, the Proprietress took Old Bai and the others and parted ways with Yang Kai. However, she did not return to Thousand Birds Star City but instead went to the Shattered Heaven!
Shattered Heaven was famous throughout the 3000 Worlds because this place was a battlefield left behind from an extremely ancient era. No one knew what kind of masters had participated in that shocking battle, but it was certain that many High Rank Open Heaven masters had fallen here.
The Shattered Heaven was filled with danger, and there were all kinds of Restrictions, Divine Abilities, and Secret Techniques ready to go. There were even some extremely dangerous Artifacts that had developed sentience and could destroy the world with a single strike.
In addition to this, there were also many Universe Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven left behind after the fall of the High Rank Open Heaven. If one wasn’t careful, they would fall into a trap and be unable to escape.
It was a place famous throughout the 3000 Worlds.
Even if it was a High Rank Open Heaven, no one was willing to step into it easily, because no one knew when danger would come to that place. An Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator had once gone there, but he had disappeared without a trace. No one knew if that person was dead or alive, and more than a dozen Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage had fallen.
However, no matter how infamous that place was, it couldn’t resist the determination and interest of many cultivators to explore it, because it was an ancient battlefield where countless masters fought to the death, leaving behind countless treasures!
Putting everything else aside, as long as one could find the entrances to the Universe Cave Heaven and Universe Paradise, they would be able to obtain the inheritance left behind after the High Rank Open Heaven died.
A single Blood Monster Cave Heaven had caused the entire 3000 Worlds to boil and countless forces to participate.
As for the Shattered Heaven, how could it only hide a single Blood Monster Cave Heaven? It was possible to hide dozens or even hundreds of them, so one could only imagine how much wealth it was.
After the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, the Proprietress had told Yang Kai to focus on his cultivation and leave the matter of the High Rank Yin Element to her, so after parting with Yang Kai, she had led Bai Qi and the others to the Shattered Heaven.
The Proprietress is a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, while Old Bai, Chef, and the Accountant were Fifth Order. The four of them had extraordinary strength, and if their luck was good enough, they might be able to find a High Rank Yin Element in Shattered Heaven.
In fact, the Proprietress' luck was quite good. In the two years she had spent in the Shattered Heaven, she had really found a High Rank Yin Element resource, but when she was collecting it, she had triggered some kind of restriction and suddenly disappeared, along with the Accountant and Chef. Old Bai had just escaped death and was at a loss as to what to do when a voice suddenly rang out beside his ear, “If you want to save someone, go to the Void Land to find Yang Kai, or it will be too late!”
After listening to Old Bai’s explanation, Yang Kai’s expression became somewhat sluggish.
He also didn’t expect that the Proprietress' situation was actually because of him. If it weren’t for the fact that she wanted to help him find that High Rank Yin Element, how could she have taken the risk to go to the Shattered Heaven? That was a place where even High Rank Open Heaven had fallen.
If she didn’t go to the Shattered Heaven, how could she suddenly disappear?
On the other hand, Old Bai's last words clearly indicated something.
“This is a man-made disaster!” Yang Kai grit his teeth. If it weren’t for this man-made disaster, how could Old Bai have heard those words? Some people were obviously trying to lure the snake out of its hole. Yang Kai had been staying in the Void Land for the past two years, making it impossible for them to make a move, but now they were actually targeting the Proprietress!
Taking a deep breath, Yang Kai suppressed his anger.
“Someone must have done this on purpose,” Old Bai looked at Yang Kai with a look of shame, “I didn’t know why the mastermind wanted me to come to the Void Land to find you, but along the way, I heard some news and finally understood.”
Old Bai had also heard about the destruction of the Hundred Force Alliance, but only now did he know that the Void Land was actually so strong. Even Heavenly Sword Union’s Kong Feng had died in the Void Land, and now that the Void Land had two Holy Spirits, if they wanted to deal with Yang Kai, they really had to lure him out!
He clearly knew this and knew that if he came to inform Yang Kai about this, Yang Kai would definitely not sit back and do nothing, but since this matter concerned the Proprietress' safety, he couldn’t help feeling guilty towards Yang Kai.
“Yang Kai, if you don’t want to go, Old Bai won’t blame you. After I recover, I’ll go save the Proprietress myself.”
Yang Kai said, “The Proprietress is my benefactor, and she has taken care of me many times in the past. If it weren’t for the Proprietress, how could the current Yang Kai be here? Her situation was all because of me, and the mastermind behind this was obviously targeting me. If I didn’t go, how could I have the face to continue living? Old Bai, you’re underestimating me too much.”
Old Bai sighed lightly.
“Besides, with your current situation, what else can you do? Rest well and recuperate. As for the Proprietress, you don’t need to worry. Since this mastermind is targeting me, I’m sure he won’t do anything to her before I show myself,” Yang Kai comforted.
