“Senior Sister Zhu, I’ve offended you this time. Farewell!” Ti Zheng cupped his fists towards Zhu Jiu Yin and withdrew.
Although they had fought each other to the death before, it was only because they were on different sides, there was no deep hatred between them. Now that the matter had been resolved, there was naturally no need to look at each other coldly. Zhu Jiu Yin is a Holy Spirit after all, so she still had some face.
The four Open Heaven Stage masters transformed into four streaks of light and soon disappeared from Zhu Jiu Yin’s sight.
In this battle, their losses weren’t small, not to mention their own injuries, the subordinates they had brought with them were more than twenty Mid Rank Open Heaven masters. All of them had been ambushed by Black Crow Divine Monarch at once, only Five or Six survived while the rest had either died or been captured.
This kind of loss was quite painful for the Cave Heaven Paradise. It was not easy to cultivate a Fifth Order and Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, and it required time and resources to slowly consolidate.
Yue He and Old Bai were still searching for the entrance to the Shadowless Cave Heaven, constantly trying to probe it, but to no avail. Ti Zheng and the others definitely had a way to open it, otherwise, they wouldn’t have been able to trap the Proprietress at a suitable time, but even if Yue He and the others had asked, it would have been in vain, it was impossible for Ti Zheng to be so kind as to tell Yue He.
After observing for a while, Zhu Jiu Yin sighed, “Don’t waste your efforts, this entrance is extremely well hidden, even this Queen can’t detect any traces of it. Continuing would only be a waste of effort.”
“Senior can’t sense it?” Old Bai was stunned.
If even Zhu Jiu Yin couldn’t detect it, then there was no need to mention him and Yue He. Letting out a heavy sigh, he stared towards the spot where Yang Kai had disappeared.
In order to save the Proprietress, he had gone to the Void Land to report this matter, but what was the result? Yang Kai had been forced to break through to the Fifth Order Open Heaven, cutting off his future prospects, and now he had entered the Shadowless Cave Heaven alone, his future uncertain!
This made him feel very guilty.
Yue He also slowly stopped, her eyes filled with anxiety and worry.
Qu Huachang walked over and tried to persuade her, “Junior Brother’s abilities are extraordinary and he can create miracles at incredible times. Since he chose to enter alone, he must have his own considerations and plans.”
How could Yue He not know this? It was just as Ti Zheng had said, the Shadowless Cave Heaven had only allowed one to enter and not exit for so many years, so no one knew what was going on inside. Yang Kai was clearly worried that if everyone went inside and couldn’t come out, it would be a tragedy, so he decided to go alone.
If even he couldn’t find a way out, it wouldn’t matter how many others entered.
“Let’s go!” Zhu Jiu Yin called out. Although she felt it was a pity that Yang Kai had reached the Fifth Order and had entered the Shadowless Cave Heaven, she didn’t know if she would have a chance to meet him again in the future. However, now that she had broken free from the Source Oath, she felt much more relaxed. The only problem now was how to explain this matter to Shan Qingluo when she returned. What if that little girl ran over here recklessly?
She still valued this junior who shared the same Source as her.
“You should leave first, I want to wait here for Young Master to come out,” Yue He said softly. She couldn’t accompany Yang Kai inside, at the very least, she had to wait here for his return.
If he didn’t return in a year, she would stay here for a year, if he didn’t return in ten years, she would stay here for ten years…
“What’s the point?” Zhu Jiu Yin asked back, “Before he left, he asked you to return to the Void Land and take care of his Sect, so what’s the point of you staying here? The Void Land has only just begun to develop, but there aren’t many masters overseeing it. Mo Mei needs to deal with Star City’s matters, so if you don’t go back to the Void Land, who can it count on? If you really want to help that boy, you should go back and help him take care of the Void Land. When he returns, wouldn’t it be better to give him a prosperous Void Land?”
Yue He remained silent for a while before whispering, “Senior is right!”
“Let’s go!” Seeing that she was still willing to listen to her, Zhu Jiu Yin nodded in satisfaction.
A moment later, the group of four went back the way they came. After leaving the Shattered Heaven, Qu Huachang took her leave. Although she had run out with Yang Kai for personal reason, she had still caused some trouble, so she naturally had to return to Yin-Yang Cave Heaven to beg for forgiveness. It was likely that she wouldn’t be able to leave Yin-Yang Cave Heaven for a while and would likely be locked up for many years.
In the depths of Shattered Heaven, a figure flew towards the Shattered Heaven's Domain Gate. This person’s face was extremely pale, and from time to time he would cough lightly, blood leaking from the corner of his mouth. His aura was extremely chaotic, and he was obviously Ti Zheng, who had just left.
Four High Rank Open Heaven masters had joined forces, and the result of their brutal battle with Zhu Jiu Yin was that both sides had suffered heavy losses. Zhu Jiu Yin had not had a good time, and the four High Rank Open Heaven masters had also suffered greatly.
This was especially true for Ti Zheng. Zhu Jiu Yin was annoyed at him for speaking rudely before, so during the battle, most of her strength was directed towards him, causing him to almost die several times.
Secretly smiling bitterly, an adult Holy Spirit was indeed not so easy to deal with. After all, he was a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage, but if he were to fight alone, he would probably be killed in less than an hour by Zhu Jiu Yin.
After all these years, he had never suffered such a serious injury before, the surface wounds were not too serious. He would be able to recover after a few days of recuperation, but what was more serious was the Small Universe World in his body. An intense battle had caused the Small Universe World to become unstable, and the World Force inside the Small Universe World was extremely chaotic.
Right now, he urgently needed to find a place to carefully recuperate his Small Universe and restore his chaotic strength, otherwise, there would be no end to his troubles.
His current appearance was quite similar to Old Bai’s previous experience. Old Bai had taken a Star Gathering Universe Pill in order to stabilize his condition. At this moment, if he had a Star Gathering Universe Pill, Ti Zheng would be able to greatly ease his condition.
Old Bai is a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, so a Star Gathering Universe Pill would be extremely effective. As a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage, the amount of pills he needed would be even greater.
Unfortunately, this kind of Spirit Pill was extremely difficult to refine, so there had always been very few of them. The Void Land had paid such a great price in order to find an Alchemist to refine it, so even if Ti Zheng is a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master, he didn’t have a Star Gathering Universe Pill.
He had never thought that there would be a day when he would need this kind of Spirit Pill. If he had known this would happen, he would have prepared some regardless of the cost.
Having separated from the other three, he had been suppressing his injuries, not allowing others to notice anything amiss. At this moment, he was actually showing signs of being unable to suppress his injuries. The small universe in his body was constantly humming as the World Force in his body surged, causing his blood to boil.
Suddenly, Ti Zheng turned his head to the side and shouted angrily, “Who is it!”
Looking around, he saw a figure speeding towards him, the Demonic Qi on his body surging. Using his eyesight, Ti Zheng was able to clearly see the face of this person through the Demonic Qi and immediately felt relieved.
The man flew over and cupped his fists, “Senior!”
Ti Zheng nodded slightly but couldn’t help letting out a muffled groan as blood leaked from the corner of his mouth.
The man asked in surprise, “Is Sir injured?”
Ti Zheng waved his hand, “No worries, where are the others?”
The man said bitterly, “They’ve all disappeared, only this subordinate managed to escape. I was being pursued by Black Crow Divine Monarch and had no choice but to hide. I never thought I would sense Sir’s aura here, so I chased after him.”
Ti Zheng was speechless. This time, Myriad Demons Heaven had also sent out seven Mid Rank Open Heaven masters, but only one of them had managed to survive. He was truly in a miserable state, his heart filled with hatred. Sooner or later, he would personally capture that bastard Black Crow and let him know the consequences of offending him.
Looking deeply at the man, Ti Zheng said, “Your luck is quite good.”
The cultivation of this subordinate in front of him was only a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, even the two Sixth Order masters he had brought with him had not been able to escape. On the other hand, this Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage remained safe until now.
The man said in shame, “This subordinate’s strength is too low, so Black Crow probably didn’t take it to heart, giving this subordinate a chance.”
As he spoke, Ti Zheng let out a muffled groan. This time, not only was blood flowing from the corner of his mouth, even his eyes and nostrils were bleeding, making him look extremely miserable.
The man asked in surprise, “Sir, how are your injuries?”
Ti Zheng still waved his hand.
The man quickly summoned a flying ship and said in a low voice, “Please board the ship and heal yourself, this subordinate will take you back to Myriad Demons Heaven.”
Ti Zheng nodded slightly and entered the flying ship in a flash, found a secret room, opened a restriction, sat down cross-legged, and stuffed a large number of Spirit Pills into his mouth. Calming his Qi and focusing his mind, he silently circulated his Profound Technique to adjust the chaotic energy in his body.
His current injuries were not something he could recover from in a short period of time, and after returning to the Myriad Demons Heaven, it would probably take him three to five years to emerge from seclusion.
On the deck, the Myriad Demons Heaven’s Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage quietly stood as the flying ship silently flew towards a certain location in the Shattered Heaven. As the Demonic Qi surged, a layer of fog was lifted, revealing a pair of glowing eyes. Soon, a determined look flashed across these eyes, and under the Demonic Qi shrouding this person’s face, a sinister smile appeared on his face.
Half an hour later, Ti Zheng, who was in secluded meditation, suddenly felt a sense of danger and opened his eyes. A Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator like him had an extremely sharp intuition and would definitely be able to sense danger.
Before he could react to what had happened, a loud explosion rang out, followed by a violent tremor.
The flying ship actually exploded!
Ti Zheng immediately understood. With a low shout, he soared into the sky and swept away the broken fragments of the ship with his powerful strength.
Just as he was about to investigate what had happened, a powerful shock wave came from all directions, causing him to cough up a mouthful of blood.
Although the explosion of the flying ship was quite powerful, it definitely wouldn’t have caused him so much damage. The only reason it was able to do so was because he had been interrupted while he was recuperating. It should be known that his injuries this time were not ordinary, the small universe world in his body had been shaken and could not be easily disturbed while he was healing.
This time, even the flying ship they were on had exploded, so how could he not be affected?
In the blink of an eye, the small universe world, which was already in a state of unrest, became even worse. Not only did his condition not improve, instead it became worse.
As Ti Zheng looked around, he saw a figure wrapped in Demonic Qi rushing towards him.
