Yang Kai took the jade slip and scanned it with his Divine Sense. Immediately frowning, he looked up at Ti Zheng and asked, “How do I know if you’re telling the truth?”
“You can choose to believe me or not, everything is up to you!” Ti Zheng grinned and slowly stood up, cupping his fists towards Zhu Jiu Yin, “Senior Sister Zhu, sorry for disturbing you!”
Turning around, he left.
After he left, Old Bai asked anxiously, “Where is the Proprietress now?”
Yang Kai said, “See for yourself.” As he spoke, he handed the jade slip to Old Bai.
Old Bai took it and immediately frowned, “Shadowless Cave Heaven?”
Inside the jade slip, there was indeed the location of the Proprietress, but she was located in a place called Shadowless Cave Heaven, which is a Universe Cave Heaven. This Shadowless Cave Heaven was on the same level as Blood Monster Cave Heaven, both of which were left behind after the death of an Eighth Order Open Heaven.
“Old Bai, do you think the information in this jade slip is real?” Yang Kai asked.
Old Bai said, “It’s very likely true. The location marked on this route is indeed the place where the Proprietress and the others disappeared. If they really fell into the Universe Cave Heaven, it would explain why they suddenly disappeared, but this Shadowless Cave Heaven… I’ve never heard of it.”
Yue He said, “Rumor has it that many High Rank Open Heaven have fallen in Shattered Heaven. After those High Rank Open Heaven died, they left behind one after another Universe Cave Heaven and Universe Paradise. It’s not surprising you haven’t heard of them, but…”
“But what?” Yang Kai turned to look at her.
“It’s just that these Universe Cave Heaven and Universe Paradise's entrances are usually closed, so ordinary people can’t enter unless they’re lucky enough to find the entrance. Since those people were able to trap Elder Sister Lan in the Shadowless Cave Heaven, doesn’t that mean they already have the method to open the entrance?”
Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed as he suddenly thought of something, “Old Bai, you said that the Proprietress came to Shattered Heaven in order to help me find a High Rank Yin Element. Where did you get the information about that High Rank Yin Element resource, or did you find it yourself?”
Old Bai replied, “It was the Proprietress who discovered it… Are you saying that someone deliberately placed a High Rank Yin Element resource there to lure the Proprietress into taking action and then trapped her in Shadowless Cave Heaven?”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “If that wasn’t the case, how could there be such a coincidence? It seems that the entrance to Shadowless Cave Heaven has indeed been grasped by someone, at least they know how to enter.”
The Cave Heaven Paradise's foundation is strong, so it wasn’t strange for it to be able to control the entrance to Shadowless Cave Heaven. Making use of this to harm the Proprietress and then leading Yang Kai to Shattered Heaven wasn’t difficult at all.
“In that case, do you still want to go over?” Zhu Jiu Yin glanced at Yang Kai indifferently, “Since he so generously told you the location, it must have been arranged beforehand. Even if this Queen were to accompany you, she may not be able to protect you. If you go now, you’ll definitely die!”
Yang Kai pursed his lips and said, “Before coming here, I was already mentally prepared. No matter how dangerous the road ahead is, there is no turning back.”
Zhu Jiu Yin looked at him deeply and said lightly, “Rest assured, if you die, I will collect your corpse!”
These words made Yue He glare at her fiercely.
“Let’s go, I want to see what kind of trap Myriad Demons Heaven has set up in that place!” Without any hesitation, Yang Kai stood up.
Walking out of the restaurant, a group of people walked out of the Star City. Yang Kai was worried about the Proprietress’ situation and his expression was solemn. His mind was filled with many thoughts as he considered the possible scenarios that might occur next. At this moment, he suddenly felt like someone was staring at him.
Looking up, their eyes met and Yang Kai was stunned.
On the opposite side of the street, a middle-aged man’s face also showed a look of disbelief, as if he hadn’t expected to encounter Yang Kai in such a place. Immediately after, hatred filled his heart, his eyes spewing out endless flames of anger and hatred, as if he wanted nothing more than to rip Yang Kai’s skin and eat his flesh.
However, when he noticed the people around Yang Kai, this person’s brow wrinkled. Although Zhu Jiu Yin and the others’ auras weren’t obvious, it was obvious they weren’t easy to deal with. With his current strength, it was impossible for him to kill Yang Kai and take revenge.
Turning around, he rushed out of the Star City.
“Follow that person!” Yang Kai shouted and hurriedly chased after him. Zhu Jiu Yin and the others didn’t know what was happening, but they quickly followed.
After exiting the Star City, they saw a streak of light flying towards the depths of the void from afar. Qu Huachang hurriedly summoned her flying artifact and the group quickly followed after her.
“Boy, who is that guy?” Zhu Jiu Yin asked in confusion.
“Wait, let me think about it!” Yang Kai didn’t answer, instead frowning as many thoughts flashed across his mind. A moment later, he suddenly understood, “I understand!”
Zhu Jiu Yin asked impatiently, “What do you understand?”
Yang Kai grinned, “We might be able to find a helper!”
Old Bai asked curiously, “What helper?”
Everyone stared at him curiously, wondering why he would chase after an irrelevant person at such a critical moment instead of going straight to the place where the Proprietress had fallen.
Yang Kai breathed a sigh of relief and turned to Qu Huachang, “Does Senior Sister Qu remember Ding Feng City?”
Qu Huachang smiled and said, “How could I not remember? The two of us were captured as captives, but aren’t those people in your Void Land now?”
These past few years, she had traveled to the Void Land quite often and had naturally met Mo Mei and the others. When she was captured by Ding Feng City together with Yang Kai, she had met Mo Mei and the others and knew their situation.
“The people of Ding Feng City, because their ancestors were trapped by Blood Monster Divine Monarch's Blood Dao Restriction, could only live in Blood Monster Cave Heaven for the rest of their lives. Without the nourishment of Blood Monster Cave Heaven's aura, they would instantly die. Back then, I cooperated with Black Crow Divine Monarch and exchanged the Secret Technique to remove the Blood Dao Restriction. After Blood Monster Cave Heaven collapsed, I found Ding Feng City in time, allowing Mo Mei and the others to live peacefully in the Void Land.”
“However, when we were captured, an Elder from Ding Feng City tried to kill me. Does Senior Sister Qu remember?”
Qu Huachang pondered for a moment before blurting out, “That person called Tan Luoxing, ah, so it’s him. I was wondering why he looked so familiar!”
When Tan Luoxing saw the wooden token the Proprietress had given to Yang Kai, he had wanted to kill him, but in the end, he had failed to kill him. Feeling guilty, he had opened the Protective Formation and escaped, followed by the Golden Baboon King wreaking havoc in Ding Feng City.
The person Yang Kai saw just now was Tan Luoxing who had escaped from Ding Feng City!
After Qu Huachang finished speaking, she asked in confusion, “That’s not right, Senior Brother Yang, that Tan Luoxing escaped long ago. Logically speaking, it should have been impossible for him to survive. With the collapse of Blood Monster Cave Heaven, all the cultivators living in Blood Monster Cave Heaven, with the exception of Ding Feng City’s people who had their Blood Dao Restrictions removed by you, others were impossible to survive!”
Yang Kai smiled, “Unless the Blood Dao Restriction in his body has also been removed!”
“Who will help him…” Qu Huachang’s eyes suddenly lit up as she asked.
Yang Kai said, “That’s right, other than me being able to remove the Blood Dao Restriction, there is another person who can do so, and that is…”
Qu Huachang continued, “Black Crow Divine Monarch!”
Yang Kai chuckled, “Black Crow Divine Monarch is truly amazing! In Blood Monster Cave Heaven, he killed so many Cave Heaven Paradise disciples. After Blood Monster Cave Heaven collapsed, news spread that all the Cave Heaven Paradise were searching for him. I thought he would die in Blood Monster Cave Heaven, but now it seems he’s still alive and well, and he even came to Shattered Heaven!”
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai nodded and said, “He really should come to the Shattered Heaven, being wanted by the Cave Heaven Paradise. His days are even worse than mine, and there’s no place for him in these 3000 Worlds, except for the Shattered Heaven, an uninhabited Chaotic Land. Tsk tsk tsk… Did Senior Sister Qu notice just now that Tan Luoxing is also an Open Heaven Stage cultivator?”
Qu Huachang nodded, “Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage!”
Yang Kai said, “The reason Black Crow Divine Monarch was able to help Tan Luoxing remove the Blood Dao Restriction is definitely not out of kindness, but because he knows he is alone and needs to gather his forces. Tan Luoxing’s Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage foundation is enough for him to use as a chess piece, and… in Blood Monster Cave Heaven, a single Ding Feng City can produce so many Open Heaven Stage masters, what about the other cities? If I’m not wrong, the current Black Crow Divine Monarch definitely has a large number of helpers under him, all of them Fifth Order and Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters!”
Black Crow Divine Monarch was an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator after all, and he possessed the Secret Technique to remove the Blood Dao Restriction. When Blood Monster Cave Heaven collapsed, if he wanted to enslave some people, it should be easy.
After all, Yang Kai had been able to save a group of people from Ding Feng City, so how could Black Crow Divine Monarch not be able to do so? Tan Luoxing’s survival was the best evidence.
Yue He said, “Young Master, this Tan Luoxing seems to be luring us somewhere!”
Yang Kai said, “This person hates me to the core. When he failed to kill me, he had no choice but to defect and leave Ding Feng City, causing him to lose his home. When he saw me in the Star City, it was only because of your protection that he didn’t dare act recklessly. If he could lure us to the place where his companions gathered, he could use others to kill ul and take revenge.”
Qu Huachang said, “That must be where Black Crow Divine Monarch is hiding!”
Yang Kai nodded, “That’s right, he wants to use Black Crow Divine Monarch’s subordinates to deal with us.”
Although there weren’t many people in Yang Kai’s group, all of them seemed to be masters. For Tan Luoxing to have the courage to lead them here meant that Black Crow Divine Monarch’s subordinates had gathered quite a number of people. He felt that Black Crow Divine Monarch had the ability to deal with Yang Kai’s group, otherwise he wouldn’t have acted like this.
Zhu Jiu said, “Are you trying to borrow Black Crow Divine Monarch's power? Be careful not to fall into someone else’s trap.”
Qu Huachang also said, “Junior Brother should consider this matter carefully. I remember that you caused Black Crow Divine Monarch to suffer greatly in Blood Monster Heaven. He also hates you to the bone!”
