“We are willing to die for the two Island Masters!” Everyone shouted in unison.
If it was any other time, Hua Yong would naturally be happy to have these people join Gemini Island. Shadowless Cave Heaven's structure had not changed for countless years, and the cultivators from the three great forces had basically never changed sides, so if they wanted to strengthen their forces, they could only wait for the newcomers to enter Shadowless Cave Heaven and try to rope them in.
For example, when Yang Kai first entered this place, he encountered Ma Tian Yuan.
Although these seven or eight people were all around the Third or Fifth Order and their cultivations were uneven, they were still Open Heaven Stage cultivators and could increase the strength of Gemini Island slightly.
However, it was quite difficult get a new recruit who just entered the Shadowless Cave Heaven. Basically, no one could enter it even after eight or ten years. If not for this, there wouldn’t be so few cultivators in Shadowless Cave Heaven.
Zhang Shun and the others wanted to join Gemini Island, but Hua Yong wasn’t the least bit happy. His mind was still immersed in the destruction of Profound Yang Mountain, Yun Feibai’s death, and Mao Zhe’s injuries. If one were to say that he had been afraid of Yang Kai and Lan Youruo’s arrival before, he was now somewhat terrified.
Especially since Yang Kai had become enemies with the people from the Profound Yang Mountain, if he accepted the people from the Profound Yang Mountain, would that make him unhappy?
With such concerns in mind, it was only natural for him to worry about personal gains and losses.
“Old Master!” Seeing his expression change, Shu Mudan naturally understood what he was thinking and called out to him softly.
Hua Yong came back to his senses and glanced at Zhang Shun and the others below before waving his hand, “Take them down to rest first.”
He didn’t directly agree to Zhang Shun and the others joining Gemini Island.
The Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage subordinate nodded and led the confused Zhang Shun and the others away.
Before he could calm down, another person rushed in from outside and cupped his fists, “Island Master, that Madam Lan has come to visit the two Island Masters and thank Island Master for taking her in!”
“What?” Hua Yong suddenly stood up, “Madam Lan is here? Did she come alone or did she bring those followers?”
The subordinate didn’t know why his Island Master was acting like he was facing a great enemy, but he still answered honestly, “Madam Lan’s three followers are all with her.”
Hua Yong’s expression became tense. One Yang Kai was already terrifying enough, but if Lan Youruo was added…
Shu Mudan said, “Old Master, why are you so anxious? Even if Yang Kai’s strength is extraordinary and his Divine Ability is unparalleled, we have never made things difficult for him, and even if we owe him a favor, he may not necessarily do anything bad.”
Hua Yong smiled bitterly, “How could I not know what Madam is talking about? It’s just that you’re not completely unaware of the situation in Shadowless Cave Heaven. This place can be entered but not exited. Lan Youruo and Yang Kai are currently residing on our Gemini Island, so it’s likely they won’t encounter any problems in the near future, but if they stay here for too long, will they be willing to live under us?”
Shu Mudan frowned, “Old Master, are you thinking too much?”
Hua Yong slowly shook his head, “One must always be vigilant!”
Shu Mudan was also flustered by his words and asked worriedly, “Then what should we do? Are we going to refuse?”
“They're already on Gemini Island right now, how can they hide here forever?” Hua Yong’s brow wrinkled as if he was about to twist into a ball. After a moment, he gritted his teeth and said, “We can only take things one step at a time and explore their plans first. If they really want to… sigh, you and I can only give up our position.”
Waving his hand to invite Madam Lan inside, Hua Yong sat down.
A moment later, the Proprietress led Yang Kai and the others inside, and Hua Yong and his wife stood up to welcome them. Both sides greeted each other and took their seats.
Hua Yong asked with concern, “Madam’s injuries weren’t light a few days ago, but now it seems her complexion is quite good. It seems she’s getting better.”
The Proprietress smiled and said, “Thank you for your concern, Island Master. My injuries weren’t serious before, but I still need some time to recuperate.”
Hua Yong smiled, “Although my Gemini Island isn’t very big, it’s better than the outside. Madam Lan, please feel free to heal your injuries here.”
The Proprietress smiled and said, “I’m just afraid to disturb the two of you.”
Shu Mudan said, “Madam Lan’s words are too polite. There are very few guests on Gemini Island, so it is my Gemini Island’s honor to have Madam Lan come.”
The two of them were both women, so they had some common topics to discuss.
From time to time, Hua Yong would glance over at Yang Kai from the corner of his eyes, only to see Yang Kai standing quietly behind Lan Youruo, not interrupting at all, as if he really was just a follower.
His heart was slightly shocked. Just what kind of charm did this Lan Youruo have to be able to make a character like Yang Kai willingly follow her lead? From the looks of it, these two didn’t seem like partners.
However, from the looks of it, these group of four should have been led by Lan Youruo. As long as they could stabilize her, everything would be much easier.
After chatting for a while, Hua Yong suddenly asked, “What plans does Madam Lan have in the future?”
Hearing this, the Proprietress smiled bitterly, “I won’t hide it from Island Master Hua, this Mistress has only been in Shadowless Cave Heaven for less than a year, so I don’t know much about this place. Right now, all I want to do is heal my injuries for the time being. As for the future, it’s not the time to worry about it yet!”
Hua Yong probed, “If Madam doesn’t mind, how about you join my Gemini Island? There are few safe places in Shadowless Cave Heaven, and Gemini Island are one of them. If you stay here, you won’t have to suffer from the Shadowless Astral Wind.”
The Proprietress had brought Chef, and the accountant here to join Gemini Island. At that time, Yang Kai had fallen into a deep sleep, so she had been unable to resist the combined forces of Yun Feibai, Geng Qing, and Zhou Ya, wanting to use the power of Gemini Island to escape.
Although Hua Yong didn’t accept her immediately, the Proprietress had already spoken and now Hua Yong had taken the initiative to mention it. If she were to refuse now, it would be too inconsistent.
Before coming here, the Proprietress had already considered this issue, so when she heard Hua Yong’s words, she smiled and nodded, “Many thanks, Island Master Hua. Being able to join Gemini Island is also my wish.”
Hua Yong laughed loudly, “It is a joyous matter that my Gemini Island was able to have Madam Lan join us. Madam Lan is just like is husband and wife, a Sixth Order Island Master, so I’ll have to trouble Madam Lan to become the Third Island Master!”
Just as the Proprietress was about to agree, Yang Kai, who had been standing silently behind her, suddenly said, “This is inappropriate!”
Hua Yong’s face tightened and his smile froze on his face. Shu Mudan also couldn’t help becoming nervous as she stared at Yang Kai.
The Proprietress smiled lightly and didn’t ask why Yang Kai refused. Since he said so, he must have his reasons.
Hua Yong swallowed his saliva and looked at Yang Kai, “What does Brother Yang think is inappropriate?”
The last time he had seen Yang Kai, he had called him Brother Yang, but the 'Brother Yang' this time is different. Because, in his heart, Yang Kai’s status was different from that day, but no one cared about these things.
Yang Kai smiled and said, “This Gemini Island is a twin island. Since it’s a twin island, having two Island Masters is enough. There’s no reason for a third Island Master.”
Hearing this, Hua Yong’s heart sank and he asked bitterly, “In Brother Yang’s opinion, what should we do?”
Yang Kai blinked at him, wondering why he was asking this question.
When their eyes met, Hua Yong couldn’t help turning his eyes away and glancing at his wife’s big belly, suddenly letting out a long sigh, “Fine, fine, since Brother Yang is interested, then we, husband and wife, will fulfill your wish. I only hope that Brother Yang can give my wife and husband a place to live on this island on account of our unborn child.”
These words confused Yang Kai.
The Proprietress also looked at Hua Yong in confusion, “What does Island Master Hua mean?”
Hua Yong’s heart was filled with grief and indignation as he thought to himself, ‘You two want to occupy my home, yet you still want to ask me what my intentions are? This Yang Kai obviously doesn’t have any reason to be the Third Island Master, he obviously doesn’t want to submit to others. This Hua is not his opponent, and I also have a wife and children to take care of, so naturally I can only submit to you!’
Hua Yong didn’t say anything, but Yang Kai understood and frowned, “Is Island Master Hua misunderstanding something?”
Hua Yong raised his head to look at him and asked in a disheartened tone, “What does Brother Yang think I’ve misunderstood?”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “Does Island Master Hua really think that I only want two Island Masters on this Gemini Island? Do you think I want to replace you and your wife?”
Hua Yong clenched his fists and asked, “Is it not?”
Chef and the Accountant finally understood. They looked at each other, speechless and laughing.
Yang Kai shook his head, “Island Master Hua is thinking too much, this Yang does not have such intentions. When I say that this Gemini Island only need two Island Masters, it means that my Proprietress will not join Gemini Island, nor will she become the third Island Master of Gemini Island. It is not what you think.”
“Not joining Gemini Island?” Hua Yong stared at him.
Yang Kai said, “This Yang only wishes for Island Master Hua to give us a place to live. Before we find a way out of Shadowless Cave Heaven, we will temporarily reside here. To Shadowless Cave Heaven, we are nothing more than passing travelers.”
Hua Yong suddenly felt a little awkward and blushed.
It was no wonder he would misunderstand. He had always been worried that Yang Kai and Lan Youruo’s arrival would change the situation on Gemini Island, so he couldn’t help thinking a bit more about it. Yang Kai’s words were unclear, so it naturally aroused many suspicions in his heart.
At this moment, he realized he had been thinking too much.
However, he was still a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so his temperament and cultivation were extraordinary. He quickly recovered and asked seriously, “Brother Yang, do you want to find a way out of Shadowless Cave Heaven?”
“Yes!” Yang Kai nodded.
Hua Yong said, “It’s not that I’m trying to discourage you, but I’m afraid there’s no way out of Shadowless Cave Heaven. Me and my wife have been here for more than ten thousand years, and that Profound Yang Mountain’s Great Mountain Lord, Mao Zhe, has also been here for quite some time, as well as the three leaders of Matchless Society. If there really is a way out, we should be able to find it.”
“That’s right, we tried to find a way out before, but after countless years, we found nothing,” Shu Mudan said.
“It’s up to the people ability,” Yang Kai smiled.
Seeing Yang Kai’s expression, Hua Yong swallowed the words he was about to say and nodded, “Since Brother Yang has such ambitions, this Hua won’t try to persuade you.”
He had seen this kind of person before, and every new cultivator who entered Shadowless Cave Heaven would think so. However, after a few years, a few dozen years, or even a hundred years, this thought would eventually disappear and they would slowly accept their fate.
“If Brother Yang can really find a way out, please help us,” Hua Yong cupped his fists.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “No problem. If we can really find a way to leave, if you and your wife are willing to leave together, we can take care of each other.”
