Half a day later, a look of despair appeared on Ti Zheng’s face.
The foundation of the Small Universe in his body had already been greatly reduced, so even if Wu Kuang were to give up now, his cultivation would likely fall drastically. If he wanted to recover, it would take countless years of slow cultivation.
On the other hand, after Wu Kuang had swallowed so much energy, his entire body had swelled up and he had become a fat man. From the pores on his body, a thick layer of blood mist was constantly gushing out.
From the looks of it, Wu Kuang seemed like he could explode at any moment due to the massive force, but in reality, he didn’t show the slightest intention of stopping and continued to madly use his Heaven Devouring Battle Law to devour everything in his path.
As time passed, Wu Kuang’s aura began to rapidly increase.
It had only been seven or eight years since this person had broken through to the Fifth Order, it was only enough time for a cultivator to stabilize their cultivation, but Wu Kuang seemed to have reached the peak of the Fifth Order and was showing signs of breaking through.
Ti Zheng was stunned.
What kind of evil technique was this Heaven Devouring Battle Law that could allow one’s cultivation to increase so quickly? Was there no side effect?
Wu Kuang didn’t care about any of this as he madly activated his Heaven Devouring Battle Law, greedily devouring the many resources of a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage.
Such an opportunity was extremely rare. Although he had done this before, what he had swallowed was only a Fourth or Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, so how could he not cherish such a rare opportunity?
And to have such an opportunity, it was all thanks to Yang Kai.
If Yang Kai hadn’t brought along a Holy Spirit to severely wound Ti Zheng, how could he have succeeded in his sneak attack?
He hadn’t expected that in just a few dozen years, Yang Kai had managed to make a name for himself in these 3000 Worlds and even occupied the Void Land, becoming its master.
Sure enough, those who were capable would not be buried wherever they went.
After a full three days, Wu Kuang finally stopped. Taking a deep breath, he raised his hands and slowly pushed them down to calm the roiling blood in his body.
After three days of continuous absorption, his entire body had become several times fatter. From a distance, he looked like a ball, swollen to the extreme, blood constantly pouring out from his seven orifices and the blood mist from his pores.
However, his aura was several times stronger than before, and he had indeed reached the peak of the Fifth Order.
On the other hand, Ti Zheng was already gasping for breath, his eyes listless and his body shriveled. The foundation of the Small Universe in his body had been completely exhausted, and at this moment, he was like a lamp without oil. Even if Wu Kuang didn’t kill him, he wouldn’t be able to live much longer.
“Do you have any last words?” Wu Kuang asked solemnly.
Ti Zheng stared at him silently.
Wu Kuang nodded, “Then please go, Sir!”
With a single palm strike, Ti Zheng exploded into dust, instantly dying without an intact corpse. A dignified Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator had been reduced to such a miserable state.
After killing Ti Zheng, Wu Kuang immediately flew towards the depths of Shattered Heaven. After a short distance, he found a Shattered Spirit Province and hid inside it, setting up many Concealment Arrays and controlling the Shattered Spirit Province to fly deeper into the Shattered Spirit Province. Wu Kuang sat down cross-legged and concentrated on refining the power he had swallowed.
This time, he had eaten too much and needed a long period of seclusion to digest it. The day he came out of seclusion would be the day he broke through to the Sixth Order.
The Heaven Devouring Battle Law was personally created by him and had been modified many times since he entered the 3000 Worlds. With such a heaven-defying cultivation technique in his possession, if he wanted to improve his cultivation, he could simply find some Open Heaven Stage cultivators to devour, so how could he expect to meet the promise that Ti Zheng had made to him?
As he had said, a thousand years was too long. If he wanted to break through to the Seventh Order, as long as the opportunity was right, he didn’t need such a long time.
Under the gray sky, the lifeless land was devoid of any greenery, the surrounding Laws were shattered, and even the World Force seemed to be in shambles.
This was Shadowless Cave Heaven?
Yang Kai stood atop a nameless mountain, frowning as he looked around.
Compared to the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, this Shadowless Cave Heaven was somewhat unsightly. Although the Blood Monster Cave Heaven was only a Universe Cave Heaven, the terrain inside was quite varied and the scenery was quite good, but this Shadowless Cave Heaven was so desolate that Yang Kai couldn’t understand why.
He tore through the void from Shattered Heaven and entered Shadowless Cave Heaven before landing here.
Logically speaking, since the entrance existed, it was definitely two-way. However, even after sensing it for a long time, he still couldn’t find any trace of space fluctuations, let alone find the place where he had entered from.
In other words, if he wanted to leave Shadowless Cave Heaven, he would have to find another exit.
Where was the Proprietress now?
Yang Kai looked around but couldn’t find anything. However, Shadowless Cave Heaven was only a Universe Cave Heaven, so it shouldn’t be too big. As long as the Proprietress was still here, he should be able to find her.
Before he could move, he suddenly felt something and turned his head to look in a certain direction, only to see a few figures speeding over and arriving in the blink of an eye.
There were three people who had come, each of them exuding the aura of Open Heaven Stage master. The leader was a middle aged man with a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation, while the other two were a Fourth Order woman and a Third Order young man.
At first glance, these three people seemed like a family, but since cultivators cultivated to the Open Heaven Stage, their age couldn’t be determined from their appearance, so it was impossible to deduce their relationship.
Yang Kai was still worried about not being able to find anyone to inquire about the Proprietress when he suddenly saw these three people and couldn’t help feeling happy.
Presumably, when he had entered, he had triggered some kind of energy fluctuation that had attracted these three people.
Before Yang Kai could ask, the middle-aged man sized him up and asked, “Are you new here?”
Yang Kai nodded, “Yes.”
The middle-aged man asked, “Judging from your aura, you seem to have just broken through?”
Yang Kai’s aura was simply too obvious and couldn’t be concealed. As long as one wasn’t blind, they would naturally be able to see it.
Yang Kai nodded again, “Yes!”
“What a pity,” The middle-aged man slowly shook his head, and the woman and young man behind him couldn’t help showing a look of pity. He had just broken through Open Heaven, yet he had fallen to such a miserable state.
Compared to this person’s bitter experience, the two of them couldn’t help feeling a lot better. After all, they had accidentally fallen into this Shadowless Cave Heaven many years ago.
“May I ask this Senior Brother’s name?” Yang Kai cupped his fists towards the middle-aged man.
The middle-aged man said, “Ma Tian Yuan.”
“So it’s Senior Brother Ma,” Yang Kai smiled, “This little brother has just arrived and is unfamiliar with this place. I would like to ask Senior Brother Ma for some information, is it convenient?”
Ma Tian Yuan looked at him strangely, “What information do you want to know?”
“Three people!” Yang Kai said, “They should have arrived here half a year ago, a woman and two men. The woman is a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master while the two men are Fifth Order. One of them has a large ‘Slaughter’ character on his chest while the other has a pair of dead fish eyes. Anyone who looks at him will have the urge to beat him up.”
As soon as Yang Kai finished speaking, Ma Tian Yuan’s eyes narrowed slightly, and the Fourth Order woman and the Third Order young man also exchanged a glance.
The Proprietress was indeed here in Shadowless Cave Heaven. At the very least, Ma Tian Yuan and the other two had seen the Proprietress, the Chef, and the Accountant before, otherwise they would not have such a reaction.
“Haha, so this Junior Brother is familiar with that Madam,” Ma Tian Yuan suddenly laughed.
Yang Kai asked happily, “Does Senior Brother Ma know where they are now?”
Ma Tian Yuan replied, “I know, of course I know. They are now guests of my Matchless Society and are not far from here. If Junior Brother wants to see them, this Ma can lead the way.”
Yang Kai said gratefully, “Many thanks, Senior Brother Ma.”
“You’re welcome, that Madam is an honored guest of my Matchless Society. Since Junior Brother is familiar with her, you are also a guest of my Matchless Society. This way, please!” He stretched out his hand and gestured towards the direction of the voice.
Yang Kai politely nodded before flying off with Ma Tian Yuan, the woman and the young man following closely behind.
Halfway down the road, Yang Kai asked curiously, “Senior Brother Ma, I just arrived here today and know nothing about this place. May I ask what kind of place Matchless Society is? Is it Senior Brother Ma’s force?”
Ma Tian Yuan replied, “I wouldn’t dare say that. The three leaders of my Matchless Society are all Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, while this Ma is only a Fifth Order. I’m just a small pawn of the leader, how could I dare say that this Matchless Society belongs to this Ma?”
Yang Kai was shocked, “Matchless Society has three Sixth Order cultivators?”
His Void Land only had two Sixth Order. In the entire 3000 Worlds, there weren’t many Second Class Sects that had three Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters.
The woman beside him couldn’t help but interject, “Big Brother Ma was also a Sixth Order back then.”
Yang Kai looked over in surprise, “Since Senior Brother Ma is a Sixth Order, why is he a Fifth Order now?”
Ma Tian Yuan’s expression became gloomy as he shook his head with a wry smile, “It’s a long story. Junior Brother, you’ve just arrived at the Shadowless Cave Heaven and don’t know much about the situation here. As time passes, you’ll naturally understand how dangerous this place is. Right, how did you end up here?”
“I’m here to find someone,” Yang Kai replied.
As soon as he said this, the expressions of the three people around him became extremely strange. Ma Tian Yuan asked, “Are you looking for that Madam?”
“Yes!” Yang Kai nodded.
Ma Tian Yuan clicked his tongue and said, “You came all the way here to find someone? Do you know that this Shadowless Cave Heaven can only be entered and not exited? Once you fall inside, you can forget about ever leaving again.”
“I’ve heard of it,” Yang Kai nodded lightly and smiled, “However, as long as one is willing, they can always find a way out.”
Ma Tian Yuan looked at him with admiration, “Those three should be very important to Junior Brother.”
Yang Kai smiled slightly, “That woman’s name is Yue He, and she is my older sister, so she is naturally important to me.”
“I see!” Ma Tian Yuan nodded knowingly.
Yang Kai continued, “Elder Sister Yue He’s kindness to me is as heavy as a mountain. If it weren’t for her support, I wouldn’t be here today.”
Ma Tian Yuan praised, “Junior Brother knows how to repay kindness, you are truly a man of character! The person this Ma is most willing to befriend is someone like Junior Brother. En, Junior Brother, why aren’t you leaving?”
Yang Kai suddenly stopped in his tracks, causing him to look at him in confusion, only to see Yang Kai smiling at him with a meaningful look in his eyes.
“She is not my sister, and her name is not Yue He!” Yang Kai slowly said.
