The Proprietress' beautiful eyes trembled slightly. They had been here for nearly a year and had experienced the strangeness and power of this Shadowless Astral Wind many times. Besides hiding in this cave, they had no way of resisting it.
But now, with Yang Kai’s Wood Element Divine Ability, he had actually managed to block all of the astral winds that had rendered them helpless. From this, it could be seen just how extraordinary Yang Kai’s Wood Element resources were.
Looking at Yang Kai’s secluded room, the Proprietress relaxed a little.
The fact that Yang Kai was able to act like this meant that his perception of the outside world was still there, so his injuries shouldn’t be too serious. Originally, she had been worried that this Shadowless Astral Wind would affect Yang Kai’s healing, but now it seemed he had a way to resist it and even had the strength to protect the three of them.
From the looks of it, although this little brat had only broken through to the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, all his previous accumulations had not been in vain. This Wood Element Divine Ability is a powerful foundation.
Inside the secret room, Yang Kai wore a happy expression.
When he had first entered this Shadowless Cave Heaven, he had been struck by the strong wind once, causing him to be covered in dust. When he checked his Small Universe's losses, he was surprised to find that the giant tree formed by the Towering Evergreen Secret Technique was still intact. At that time, he had guessed that this Secret Technique would be able to resist the assault of the Shadowless Astral Wing.
Unfortunately, he didn’t have a chance to verify it.
This time, the astral wind rose again, and as soon as he sensed it, he immediately activated his Towering Evergreen Secret Technique, but the result was exactly as he had guessed. Under the envelopment of the giant tree, the astral winds scattered and were all blocked outside.
Yang Kai’s heart settled. With this Secret Technique, he would no longer have to worry about the Shadowless Astral Wind in Shadowless Cave Heaven. Not only could this Secret Technique protect him, but it could also protect the people around him.
In a place like Shadowless Cave Heaven, having such a method was like having an additional life-saving trump card and no longer having to worry about being disturbed by Shadowless Astral Winds.
Although the headquarters of the three great forces were safe, it was impossible for them to move. Yang Kai’s Divine Ability and Secret Technique could be used at any time, so although the range of its protection was limited, it was not a big deal.
An hour later, the astral winds dispersed.
Yang Kai withdrew his Divine Ability and the giant tree that filled the cave slowly dissipated, the green light that was filled with vitality slowly receding as it continued to absorb the World Fruit’s medicinal effects.
For nearly a month, he had been constantly absorbing the World Force emitted by the World Fruit.
Now, not only had the small universe's lost foundation been restored, but it had also been greatly strengthened, and even the area of his small universe had expanded by several times.
Yang Kai had a faint feeling that his Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage seemed to have reached his limit. It shouldn’t take long for him to break through this limit, and at that time, he would be able to break through to the Sixth Order!
There was no need to worry about the World Fruit’s efficacy being insufficient. Since Yue He could advance from the Fifth Order to the Sixth Order, he could naturally do the same.
At the same time, atop Profound Yang Mountain, at the peak of a mountain, the door to the palace suddenly opened and the Second Mountain Lord, Yun Feibai, strode out, glanced around, and ordered, “Inform the Third Mountain Lord and Fourth Mountain Lord to gather their forces and follow me to capture that slut Lan Youruo!”
A Fourth Order Open Heaven guard outside the hall quickly responded, “Yes!”
Looking towards the volcanic crater, Yun Feibai’s expression became cold.
The last time he had suffered a great loss at Yang Kai’s hands, it had been a great humiliation. The wound from the spear piercing through his chest was quite serious, and it had taken him nearly a month to recover. Even now, his chest was still aching!
Although Yang Kai didn’t have a good time and was almost beheaded by him, the other party was only a Fifth Order while he was a Sixth Order. The gap of one grade was like the distance between the heaven and the earth. How could Yun Feibai not hate him for being injured by someone of a lower grade?
In order to heal his injuries as soon as possible, he had also used many healing treasures. These things were extremely rare in Shadowless Cave Heaven, and to him, it was a great loss.
In his heart, he was filled with hatred. If it wasn’t for the fact that Great Mountain Lord valued that boy’s Space Ability and wanted to rely on him to find an exit, he would have torn that boy to pieces.
However, since the Great Mountain Lord had spoken, this man couldn’t be killed, but it was still possible to give him a taste of his own medicine. He secretly swore that after capturing Yang Kai, he would cut off his hands and feet and stuff them into his mouth.
As for Lan Youruo, this time he is determined to win! Before, he had invited her to join the Profound Yang Mountain and promised her the position of Fifth Mountain Lord, but she had not given him any face. Since she did not know how to appreciate kindness, she could not blame him for being ruthless.
The Third Mountain Lord, Geng Qing, and the Fourth Mountain Lord, Zhou Ya, had long been preparing. If it weren’t for Yun Feibai insisting on personally taking action to wash away his shame, they would have already led their men to the volcanic crater. Now that they had received the news, they naturally didn’t delay any further. Soon, a large group of light flew out from the Profound Yang Mountain towards the hiding place of the Proprietress and the others.
There were dozens of people in this group, and the leaders were naturally the three Sixth Order Mountain Lords. The weakest cultivator behind them was a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, a Third Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator wasn’t qualified to interfere in this matter. Among them, there were five or six Fifth Order.
Such strength was more than enough to deal with Lan Yourou and the others.
The volcanic crater where Lan Youruo and the others were hiding had always been known to the people of Profound Yang Mountain. The reason why they hadn’t attacked before was because the several Mountain Lords had some scruples about that woman’s Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation. If they really forced her into a corner, even if Lan Youruo couldn’t fight four people at once, she could at least seriously injure one or two of them.
Moreover, Yun Feibai also wanted to wait for the Shadowless Astral Winds to weaken the strength of the Proprietress and the others, so it wouldn’t take long. As long as it took one or two years, the strength of Lan Youruo and the others would definitely be greatly reduced. At that time, it would not be bloody when to capture them.
Even if Yang Kai hadn’t come to the Profound Yang Mountain to cause trouble, Yun Feibai was prepared to act soon. Now that the Great Mountain Lord valued Yang Kai’s ability, with two reasons, sending troops to deal with Lan Youruo was inevitable.
A group of people flew through the void.
In less than two or three days, they had arrived near the volcanic crater. With a single command from the Three Great Mountain Lords, the crater was instantly surrounded and the World Force fluctuated wildly.
Inside the cave below the volcano, Chef exclaimed, “Proprietress, people from Profound Yang Mountain have arrived!”
The Proprietress' expression became solemn as she nodded, “I know.” Turning her head, she glanced towards Yang Kai’s secluded room and said, “I’ll go out and take a look. If anything goes wrong, take Yang Kai and leave immediately!”
Chef asked worriedly, “What about you?”
The Proprietress said, “Don’t worry about me, I have a way to escape!”
The accountant stepped forward and said, “Proprietress, I’ll accompany you, at least we can look after each other!”
“Many people have come from the Profound Yang Mountain this time, and with all three Mountain Lords present, I can still move freely. There’s no need for you to follow me.” Finished speaking, the Proprietress soared into the sky and flashed out of the cave. With a wave of her hand, she opened a path through the rolling magma.
Chef and the Accountant watched her leave anxiously.
Originally, they had thought that after advancing to the Fifth Order, they would be able to help the Proprietress, but in the current situation, the Fifth Order Open Heaven would not be of any use. If they really followed, they would be taken advantage of by the enemy and become the Proprietress' hindrance.
He couldn’t help hating himself for being so useless. At this critical moment, he couldn’t help at all. Turning his head to look at the nearby secret room, Chef’s eyes twitched. What the hell was Yang Kai doing? He had been healing himself for almost a month, but he still hadn’t come out.
If he had come out of seclusion and relied on his Space Divine Ability, he would have been able to escape at the very least if he couldn’t defeat the other party. But now, this little bastard had been healing his injuries for a month without any signs of movement, not even knowing that trouble had arrived at his doorstep.
Outside the volcanic crater, the three Great Mountain Lords of Profound Yang Mountain stood side by side, surrounded by many figures and auras. Seeing the magma surging below them, Yun Feibai’s lips curled up slightly.
A pure white figure emerged from the fiery red magma, wearing a palace dress that accentuated her graceful figure.
The Proprietress stood quietly in the air, gently flicking her sleeves as she glanced around before turning to Yun Feibai and the other two and asking, “Why have the three Lords of Profound Yang Mountain come here?”
Yun Feibai sneered, “You already know the answer, so you should know why we are here.”
The Proprietress said, “I’m not a worm in your stomach, how would I know what you’re thinking?”
Yun Feibai sneered, “Since you’re willing to pretend to be ignorant, then just continue to be ignorant. When you get beaten up later, don’t cry!”
The Proprietress looked at him indifferently and said, “Yun Feibai, although you are also a Sixth Order, you may not be my opponent. I advise you to return to where you came from, lest you make a mistake!”
Yun Feibai flew into a rage, “This bitch’s tone isn’t small, I want to see just how great your ability is!”
Saying so, Yun Feibai’s body trembled and the World Force wrapped around him as he flew towards the Proprietress.
Geng Qing shook his head helplessly, “Second Brother is still as hot-tempered as ever, can’t he see that she’s deliberately provoking him to fight him one on one?”
Zhou Ya said, “Second Brother cares about face, so let him be. This Lan Youruo has been attacked by the Shadowless Astral Wind for almost a year now, so her strength is definitely not as strong as before. You and I will just stand guard for Second Brother and let him regain some face before we take her down together.”
Geng Qing nodded slightly but didn’t make any movements, instead suddenly taking a step forward and moving to the other side to support Zhou Ya.
As far as the eye could see, Yun Feibai and Lan Youruo were already engaged in a fierce battle. Both of them were Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, and as soon as they made their moves, the World Force was released, and many Divine Abilities and Secret Technique were released.
After observing for a while, Geng Qing’s brow rose as he discovered that this Lan Youruo’s strength was truly extraordinary. Even though her strength had declined, she was still evenly matched with his Second Brother.
His heart couldn’t help feeling a bit frightened. If this Lan Youruo was at her peak, how terrifying would her strength be? Even if she wasn’t as strong as Great Mountain Lord, she shouldn’t be far off.
Since such a powerful master had a grudge with the Profound Yang Mountain, it seemed he had no choice but to kill her. Otherwise, if she managed to escape today’s calamity and join Matchless Society or Gemini Island in the future, it would be troublesome.
