While refining the Open Heaven Pill, he was also examining the Small Universe in his body. Because of that strange wind, the Small Universe was in a mess.
Suddenly, Yang Kai’s expression froze as his mind sank into a certain part of his Small Universe.
This was the place where the majestic Towering Evergreen Secret Technique appeared, a giant towering ancient tree.
The surrounding area of this giant tree, which was covered by its canopy, was completely intact. There were no signs of it being ravaged by the violent wind, as if it had been blocked by something.
Yang Kai’s brow wrinkled slightly as he carefully examined the other parts of his Small Universe, confirming that apart from this place, all other parts of the Small Universe had been blown by the wind.
This discovery caused Yang Kai’s eyes to light up as he thought to himself, Could it be that this Towering Evergreen was able to resist the violent wind? Otherwise, how could this place be completely unscathed? Unfortunately, he hadn’t noticed this place when the violent wind was blowing, otherwise he would have been able to observe it carefully.
Now, he would have to wait for the next time the wind blew again before he could verify it. If it was really as he had guessed, then he would have another life-saving trump card in Shadowless Cave Heaven. At the very least, he wouldn’t have to worry about his Small Universe's foundation constantly leaking.
After collecting his thoughts, Yang Kai got up and set out.
He didn’t know where the Profound Yang Mountain was located, but as long as he could meet someone again, he should be able to find out. Ma Tian Yuan also said that there were three great forces in Shadowless Cave Heaven, and all cultivators belonged to one of these three great forces, because if one didn’t join one of them, it would be impossible to survive here.
Perhaps it was because a strong wind had just blown up, everyone had hidden themselves while Yang Kai had been moving forward for half a day, but not a single person had appeared.
Half a day later, from the corner of his eyes, he saw two figures flying past.
Yang Kai quickly chased after it.
The two figure were quite vigilant and quickly noticed Yang Kai’s movements, immediately stopping and turning their heads to look at him vigilantly, putting on a defensive posture.
Yang Kai landed not far away from them and swept his eyes over them, discovering that these two were both Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage masters. One of them looked rough while the other was tall.
The aura of Yang Kai’s Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage caused the two of them to feel somewhat apprehensive. The rough-looking man shouted, “Who are you, Sir? Why are you chasing after us brother?”
“Please don’t panic, this one has no malicious intentions, I just wanted to ask for directions,” Yang Kai smiled and cupped his fists.
The two Senior and Junior Brothers glanced at each other before the rough-looking man asked with a strange expression, “Ask the way, what way do you want to ask?”
Yang Kai asked, “May I ask how to get to Profound Yang Mountain?”
The rough man’s expression became even stranger, “You don’t know where the Profound Yang Mountain is?”
On the other hand, the other man beside him seemed to understand something and secretly sent a voice transmission to him. The rough-looking man suddenly understood and asked, “Senior Brother, did you just come to Shadowless Cave Heaven?”
Only those who had just arrived did not know where the Profound Yang Mountain was.
“That’s right!” Yang Kai nodded, “This one accidentally fell into this Shadowless Cave Heaven and heard that there are three great forces here. The Profound Yang Mountain is the number one force, so my heart is set on joining them, but I don’t know the way, so I wanted to ask the two of you about it. If I have offended you, please forgive me!”
The rough looking man immediately laughed, “So that’s how it is, I thought someone was trying to rob us. You’re right, of the three great forces in Shadowless Cave Heaven, my Profound Yang Mountain is the strongest. My Profound Yang Mountain has four Great Mountain Lords, each of them a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master, while the First Mountain Lord is infinitely close to the Seventh Order. Matchless Society only has three Sixth Order, and Gemini Island only have two. In terms of strength, they can’t even be compared to my Profound Yang Mountain.”
Yang Kai’s eyes lit up, “The two of you are from Profound Yang Mountain?” He hadn’t expected that the two he had just met would be from Profound Yang Mountain. However, thinking about it, it wasn’t strange. There were only three great forces in Shadowless Cave Heaven, and since he had already met people from Matchless Society, it was normal for him to meet people from Profound Yang Mountain.
The rough looking man smiled reservedly, “Yes!”
Yang Kai’s face lit up as he said, “What a coincidence. If it’s convenient for the two of you, can you lead me to Profound Yang Mountain? Of course, if it’s not inconvenient, you can just give me directions, I’ll go by myself.”
The rough looking man man and his companion glanced at each other and whispered to each other for a while before nodding and saying, “There’s nothing important to discuss right now. Since this Senior Brother is willing to join my Profound Yang Mountain, I’m sure the Mountain Lords will welcome you. We will accompany you.”
A Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage master was also a good master in Shadowless Cave Heaven. Which force didn’t welcome them? Not to mention, new disciples were required to accept some tributes. When the time came, the two of them, as guides, would receive some rewards.
This was why Ma Tian Yuan wanted to invite Yang Kai to join Matchless Society.
“Many thanks!” Yang Kai cupped his fists.
The rough-looking man smiled and said, “This Senior Brother is too polite. If you join the Profound Yang Mountain, we’ll all be a family in the future. The strength of us brothers is low, so I’m afraid we’ll have to rely on Senior Brother to take care of us in the future!”
“Sure, sure,” Yang Kai replied with a smile.
The two brothers turned around and headed towards the Profound Yang Mountain.
Yang Kai’s attitude was amiable, and he is a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. The two brothers wanted to befriend him, so as they walked along, they chatted and laughed. These two really were brothers, surnamed Wei.
As the two of them talked, they also asked about Yang Kai’s origins. Yang Kai naturally said that he came from the Void Land, but because he was searching for treasures in Shattered Heaven, he had accidentally entered the Shadowless Cave Heaven.
The Void Land was a force that had only recently appeared. The cultivators in Shadowless Cave Heaven had lived here for countless years, so how could they know anything about the Void Land? As such, it was impossible to determine whether Yang Kai’s words were true or false.
However, in this Shadowless Cave Heaven, no matter what kind of background one had, it was useless here. The disciples who had once lived in the Cave Heaven Paradise would always feel that they were superior to others and treat others with disdain, but in the end, they would end up being killed by some powerful master.
Yang Kai’s aura was obvious; after all, he is a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. The Wei Brothers were only Fourth Order, so they were naturally polite to him.
Feeling that the time was right, Yang Kai suddenly asked, “Right, half a day ago, there was a strong gust of wind in this damned place. What was that wind all about? Why was I unable to avoid it even after hiding several hundred meters underground?”
Speaking of this strange wind, the Wei Brothers couldn’t help shuddering. Brother Wei looked at Yang Kai with a strange expression and asked, “Senior Brother Yang hid underground to avoid this wind?”
The two brothers glanced at each other, a look of nostalgia appearing in their eyes, and soon after, Brother Wei couldn’t help laughing, “Us two brothers also did the same thing back then, but in the end, it was completely ineffective. The wind couldn’t be avoided at all, and not only did it blow into the ground, it also blew into the Small Universe, causing us two brothers to suffer heavy losses!”
Yang Kai couldn’t help nodding his head, “That’s right, my Small Universe is in a mess.”
Wei Di said, “Senior Brother Yang doesn’t know, but that strange wind is called Shadowless Astral Wind here. I don’t know what it is, but it’s all pervasive. In the entire Shadowless Cave Heaven, there are only a few places that aren’t affected and no other places are able to avoid it.”
Brother Wei continued, “These few places are the headquarters of the three great forces in Shadowless Cave Heaven. My Profound Yang Mountain is the largest, and every time the Shadowless Astral Wind blows, everyone must avoid it, otherwise they will suffer a loss.”
Yang Kai suddenly understood and said, “No wonder the person I met before said that in Shadowless Cave Heaven, if you don’t join the three great forces, you won’t be able to survive.”
Brother Wei nodded heavily and said, “Isn’t that right? Without a shelter, sooner or later the Small Universe's foundation will be completely destroyed by the Shadowless Astral Wind. When the Small Universe collapses, you will definitely die.”
Yang Kai said with a worried expression, “In this entire Shadowless Cave Heaven, only the headquarters of the three great forces can avoid it?” If that was the case, then the situation of the Proprietress and the others would be quite worrisome. They had been in this Shadowless Cave Heaven for almost a year, and in this past year, he had lost count of how many Shadowless Astral Winds would have blown up. This would definitely affect their Small Universe.
Wei Di shook his head, “Not really, there are some other scattered places, but they’re all quite small and can’t accommodate too many people.”
Brother Wei continued, “I won’t hide it from Senior Brother Yang, even the headquarters of the three great forces can’t completely avoid the Shadowless Astral Wind. It’s just that the impacts when hiding in it are relatively small. Even if there are other places to hide, the effects won’t be as great as the headquarters of the three great forces.”
Wei Di nodded in agreement.
Yang Kai raised his brow and said, “If that’s the case, if we don’t join the three great forces, we really won’t be able to survive here.”
Yang Kai’s eyes flashed as he asked, “Could it be that after so many years, no one has survived outside of the three great forces?”
“How is that possible? Senior Brother Yang, you’ve also experienced the ferocity of the Shadowless Astral Wind before. With your Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation, how many times do you think you can withstand it?”
Wei Di said from the side, “Now that you mention it, there were three people who were stranded outside before, but I don’t know how they are doing now.”
“There are three people wandering outside?” Yang Kai showed a look of surprise, “Who are these three? Why are they wandering outside?”
Wei Di glanced at Brother Wei, not knowing whether he should speak.
Brother Wei hesitated for a moment before saying, “Senior Brother Yang is going to join my Profound Yang Mountain, so we’ll be on the same side in the future, so there’s nothing to say.”
Wei Di said, “Senior Brother Yang, you just said you wanted to join the Profound Yang Mountain, but do you know the rules?”
“If you join my Profound Yang Mountain, you will naturally be able to hide inside when the Shadowless Astral Wind rises and not be disturbed by it. However, because there is a shortage of resources in this Shadowless Cave Heaven, every new cultivator must hand over eighty percent of their cultivation resources.”
“I heard of it,” Yang Kai nodded lightly.
Only then did Wei Di let out a sigh of relief, secretly thinking that there should have been other forces who had tried to win Yang Kai over before, but Yang Kai had rejected them. After experiencing the power of the Shadowless Astral Wind, he had decided to join the Profound Yang Mountain.
