On Dragon Child Peak, Yang Kai and Old Man Bi Xi sat across from each other, a chessboard placed between them. However, Yang Kai didn’t know how to play, so he was quickly defeated.
Little Red stood behind him and watched nervously, clenching her fists from time to time. Little Black simply sat to the side and giggled, drooling.
“Boy, you’re feeling a bit uneasy today,” Bi Xi smiled as he casually placed a stone down.
Yang Kai rolled his eyes at him and threw the chess piece in his hand onto the chessboard, angrily asking, “Why do you ask when you already know?”
The entire Void Land was being carried on Old Man Bi Xi’s back. As long as he wanted to, nothing in the Void Land could escape his senses. Just now, Yang Kai and Zhu Jiu Yin had nearly caused a scene, so Yang Kai didn’t believe this old turtle hadn’t noticed.
Bi Xi smiled and said, “You suffered at the little spider’s place, so you can’t come here to vent your anger on this old master, right?” As he spoke, he wiped the saliva from the corner of Little Black’s mouth and rubbed his head, with a doting look on his face.
Yang Kai smiled wryly, “This little brat naturally wouldn’t dare, but… this little brat’s future is bleak, so this time I came to ask the Old Sir for guidance.”
Bi Xi slowly packed up his chess pieces and gently said, “This is a hopeless situation, this old master has no choice, unless you learn from this old master…” Saying so, he shrank his neck and made a very dignified gesture, “Be a coward!”
Yang Kai’s face darkened as he said, “Old Sir knows this is impossible.”
“Then you can only die!”
Little Red immediately looked towards Yang Kai nervously, tears welling up in her eyes.
“Does Senior not have any advice?” Yang Kai looked at him.
Bi Xi sighed, “This old master really can’t help you with this matter. If this had happened in your Void Territory, this old master would still have some use, but since we have to travel far, this old master’s size is something you know. Unless I transform and shrink, I can forget about passing through the Domain Gate. But if I transform and shrink, your Void Land will definitely collapse. Are you willing to give up this Void Land?”
Yang Kai slowly shook his head.
There were now hundreds of thousands of disciples living in the Void Land. If he really gave it up, where would they go? However, if Bi Xi didn’t shrink in size, it would be impossible for him to pass through the Domain Gate to another Great Domain.
So from the beginning, Yang Kai had not expected Bi Xi to travel with him in his true form.
“Senior, your embodiment…” Yang Kai stared at him without moving.
Bi Xi said, “This old master’s Embodiment can only borrow strength when it is close to the real body. If it is too far away from the real body, it won’t be able to display much power. At most, it will only be a Sixth Order Open Heaven. Do you still need a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage?”
Yang Kai was stunned.
Last time, when Bi Xi appeared, he had easily blocked a tyrannical blow from a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage. Yang Kai had thought that this old man’s Embodiment was also so powerful, but now he knew that it was only with the help of his true body.
If it really was only a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage, it really wouldn’t be able to play a decisive role.
Zhu Jiu Yin had rejected him without any hesitation, and now even Bi Xi could not be counted on, so Yang Kai only felt his future was bleak.
After pondering for a moment, Yang Kai asked, “Does Senior know about Shattered Heaven?”
Bi Xi said, “I know a thing or two about it. This Shattered Heaven was formed a long time ago, and at that time, this old master was still young. It was probably because of the birth of an Innate Treasure that the various Cave Heaven Paradise fought over it, almost engulfing the entire vast universe. That battle lasted for more than a hundred years, and it was unknown how many High Rank Open Heaven had fallen in that damned place. Several Great Domains were shattered and connected, forming the Shattered Heaven. After that battle, the Cave Heaven Paradise's vitality was greatly damaged, and it took them tens of thousands of years to recover. Even now, how could the foundations of those Cave Heaven Paradise be compared to the past?”
Yang Kai was shocked, “The Shattered Heaven was actually caused by the Blood Battles of the various Cave Heaven Paradise?”
“That’s right!” Bi Xi nodded, “Other than the Cave Heaven Paradise, how could there be so many High Rank Open Heaven in this world? There are many opportunities and dangers everywhere there. When this old master was young, I once went out to travel, but I didn’t go too far before returning, so if you want to ask about the Shattered Heaven, this old master can only advise you to be careful!”
“I’ll remember,” Yang Kai nodded, feeling both guilty and touched. After experiencing the Blood Monster Cave Heaven incident, the Proprietress also knew that it was not convenient for Yang Kai to search for that High Rank Yin Element, so she took the initiative to take care of it. However, even though she was a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, it was not easy for her to find High Rank Yin Element resource, and Shattered Heaven was the best place she could think of.
Although she knew it was extremely dangerous, the Proprietress still went without hesitation.
If it weren’t for someone secretly plotting against her, the Proprietress would have been fine, but someone had wanted to use her to lure Yang Kai out of the Void Land, causing her to suffer.
Yang Kai then asked Bi Xi about what had happened to him when he entered the Shattered Heaven, but Bi Xi didn’t say anything, just that he didn’t know much about it.
Half a day later, Yang Kai stood up and took his leave.
Little Red also stood up and said, “Young Master, I’ll go with you.” After several years, she no longer stuttered.
Little Black took a deep breath and puffed out his chest, “I’ll go too.”
Hearing this, Bi Xi glared at them, “What kind of abilities do you two have now? Why are you going there? Be good and accompany this old master!”
Little Red said, “Little Black and I were both brought here by Young Master from the Great Ruins Boundary, and now that we are able to transform, it’s all thanks to the Dragon Blood Pill that Young Master bestowed upon us. If it weren’t for Young Master, Little Black and I would still be living our days in a daze. Now that Young Master is in trouble, how can we not take care of him? Grandfather Turtle, if you can’t go, Little Black and I will go!”
“Nonsense!” Bi Xi scolded. He had been alone for so many years, and now that he suddenly had two children with blood relations to accompany him, he was quite at ease. How could he sit back and watch them take risks?
Yang Kai rubbed Little Red's head and said, “I understand your intentions, but don’t go to Shattered Heaven. I’ve already broken through the Great Ruins Boundary, so what does Shattered Heaven matter? Just stay at home, Young Master will be back soon.”
Little Red stubbornly said, “I’ll go, I’ll go. If Young Master doesn’t bring us, Little Black and I will secretly go by ourselves. We must live and die together with Young Master!”
Little Black nodded vigorously, “Yes, we must live and die together!”
Yang Kai was speechless as he looked towards Bi Xi for help.
Bi Xi’s face turned black with anger, but after a long time, he gritted his teeth and said, “Ah, forget it, little girl, if you want to take advantage of this old master, just say so, there’s no need to beat around the bush!”
Yang Kai was puzzled.
However, Bi Xi opened his mouth and spat out something, placing it in his palm before reluctantly handing it over to Yang Kai, “Take it, it might save your life at a critical moment!”
Yang Kai reached out and took it, asking curiously, “What is this?”
Bi Xi snorted, “This is a shell that this old master shed many years ago. It has been refined by this old master, so all you need to do is pour your strength into it to activate it.”
Yang Kai took a closer look and discovered that the object in his hand was a palm-sized tortoise shell. His eyes immediately lit up as he said happily, “Many thanks, Senior!”
Yang Kai had personally witnessed just how strong Bi Xi’s defense was. Now that he had this tortoise shell refined from Bi Xi’s molting, Yang Kai had some means of preserving his life. Right now, he was only a Half Open Heaven cultivator. Although he could compete with a Low Rank Open Heaven cultivator with all his trump cards, if he really encountered an expert, he wouldn’t be able to fight back.
On this trip to Shattered Heaven, there was no need for him to act. All he needed to do was protect himself. What Bi Xi had given him could be said to be timely assistance.
Little Red smiled and walked forward, holding Bi Xi’s arm and shaking it, “I knew Grandpa Turtle is the best.”
Bi Xi’s face darkened, “Don’t try to act like this, I shouldn’t have let you see this last time. Little girl, you really are an ingrate that can’t be raised properly!”
Little Red placed her head on Bi Xi’s arm and said coquettishly, “Don’t be angry, Grandpa Turtle. When Little Red grows up and becomes stronger, she will definitely show her filial respect to Grandpa.”
These words made Bi Xi smile happily, his heart filled with joy.
Yang Kai cupped his fists and said, “Senior, this little brat still has some matters to attend to, so I’ll take my leave first.”
Saying so, he turned around and left.
“Boy!” Bi Xi suddenly called out from behind him.
Yang Kai turned to look at him, “Does Senior have any other instructions?”
“If there really is a life-threatening danger…” Bi Xi’s expression became serious, pausing for a moment before continuing, “There’s no harm in revealing your Dragon form, perhaps your enemies will be wary of you! However, unless it’s absolutely necessary, it’s best not to expose yourself so easily. Although the Dragon Clan is strong, they also have many enemies, so it’s highly likely they will backfire.”
Yang Kai nodded seriously, “I’ll remember.”
These words seemed vaguely familiar. Thinking about it carefully, when he saved Mie Meng, she had also said these words to him.
Bi Xi also had the same advice, so it seemed that the Dragon Clan really did have many enemies in these 3000 Worlds.
However, no matter what, Yang Kai still had some gains from Bi Xi. After obtaining a piece of the shed skin he had bestowed upon him, Yang Kai kept it close to his body so he could use it at any time.
Returning to the place where Old Bai was recuperating, Yue He said, “Young Master, I’ve thought about it for a moment. You don’t need to go to the Shattered Heaven. When Bai Qi recovers, I’ll go with him to save Elder Sister Lan.”
Yang Kai shook his head, “If I don’t show up, the Proprietress will definitely not be able to escape. This matter is directed at me, and only I can resolve it. On the other hand, you don’t need to go. The Proprietress’ cultivation is stronger than yours, and the person behind her can make things difficult for her, so even if you go, it won’t help.”
Yue He also shook her head and said, “Young Master has a reason to insist on going, but I also have a reason to insist on going. Elder Sister Lan has treated me like her own sister, and she has also shown me great kindness in cultivating me, but because of some matters, I have resented her for many years. Now that she is in trouble, how can I just stand by and watch? Moreover, Young Master has yet to reach Open Heaven, so this trip to Shattered Heaven is fraught with danger, so you need talents to follow around you.”
