“Proprietress!” Yang Kai stepped forward and greeted, “Are you preparing to move the shop to my Void Star City?”
The Proprietress smiled and asked, “What shop?”
“Then…” Yang Kai was puzzled.
Old Bai smiled and said, “The Proprietress has already left the First Inn and is now free.”
Yang Kai was stunned. Originally, when he saw the Proprietress bring so many old friends with her, he thought she was going to move the First Inn to Void Star City, but who would have thought she had already left the First Inn.
“We also want to join the Void Land, so we want to ask if you're willing or not!” The Proprietress smiled at Yang Kai.
Yang Kai quickly said, “Of course you're welcome, how could I not welcome you? If the Proprietress wants to be the master of this Void Land, you can do as you please.”
“Forget about being the Void Land’s Master,” The Proprietress rolled her eyes at him, “It’s not easy for me to be free, I don’t want to add any more burden to myself, so don’t even think about targeting me.”
Yang Kai grinned, “Then what position does Proprietress want?”
The Proprietress slowly shook her head, “There’s no need for that. Prepare a place for me to go into seclusion, I’ll be going into seclusion soon.”
Yang Kai’s expression became solemn, “Break through to the Seventh Order?”
Gold Rainbow Province and Boundless Altar had been destroyed and the Heart Demon Oath had been eliminated. The Proprietress’ path to the Seventh Order had no more obstacles, but because of the loss of her foundation in Shadowless Cave Heaven, if she wanted to break through to the Seventh Order, she would need to spend some time to restore her foundation.
The Proprietress nodded seriously, “After so many years, it’s time to advance to the Seventh Order.”
Yang Kai asked nervously, “Are you confident?”
Advancing to the Seventh Order was no laughing matter. Although there was only a difference of one grade between the Sixth Order and Seventh Order, that was the difference between a Mid Rank and High Rank. It was a sublimation of the Open Heaven Stage, and the level of danger during the promotion was no less than a cultivator breaking through from the Emperor Realm to the Open Heaven Stage.
If she failed, the consequences would be unimaginable.
There were countless precedents of Open Heaven Stage cultivators perishing because they had broken through to the next grade. For cultivators at this level, every time they broke through, it would be a life or death crisis. If they were able to survive it, the world would change. If they couldn’t, they would die.
“I have some confidence, but this kind of thing… I’ll do my best and leave it up to fate,” The Proprietress said calmly.
Yang Kai nodded, “Since the Proprietress has made her decision, I won’t say anything more. If you need any resources, feel free to ask. Yue He will prepare them for you.”
The Proprietress smiled lightly, “There’s no lack of resources. I’ve been the shopkeeper for so many years, so I’ve accumulated some good things.”
“Good,” Yang Kai thought for a moment before taking out a jade bottle and handing it to the Proprietress, “Take this, in case you need it!”
The Proprietress glanced at it and found it somewhat familiar, suddenly remembering what it was.
When Yang Kai first came out of the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, he had given this jade bottle to her. Inside this bottle were about a hundred Open Heaven Pill from the Universe Furnace, which should have been obtained by Blood Monster Divine Monarch.
These Open Heaven Pill were not something that could be compared to the Open Heaven Pill refined by Alchemists. Every single one of them is priceless, and although a hundred was not a lot, if news of this leaked out, it would definitely cause a huge commotion.
At that time, Yang Kai had thought that this thing might be able to help the Proprietress break through to the Seventh Order, but the Proprietress had politely refused, saying that even this Open Heaven Pill from the Universe Furnace would have no effect because of the oath.
Now that the Proprietress was preparing to break through to the Seventh Order, this was the only thing Yang Kai could help her with.
The Proprietress hesitated for a moment before reaching out to take the jade bottle and smiling, “If I can’t use it, I’ll return it to you after I come out of seclusion.”
Yang Kai said seriously, “Then we’ll wait for the Proprietress’ good news.”
The Proprietress had directly broken through to the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage back then, so her aptitude was extraordinary. Logically speaking, with her aptitude, it shouldn’t be a problem for her to break through to the Seventh Order. However, there was always a chance of something happening, so there was no harm in being careful.
“Half a year later, Yin-Yang Cave Heaven will have a Dao Exchange Conference. Have you heard of it?” The Proprietress suddenly asked.
“Does the Proprietress also know about this?” After Yang Kai asked this question, he couldn’t help smiling. The First Inn was originally a place to collect information, but now that this matter had become so popular, it would be strange if the Proprietress didn’t know.
“I’m not deaf, how could I not know about such a big matter?” The Proprietress glared at him, “That Qu Huachang is one of the core disciples of Yin-Yang Cave Heaven, and in the future she will inherit the qualifications to become Yin-Yang Cave Heaven’s Sect Master. However, because she violated a taboo, she must give an explanation to the other Cave Heaven Paradise, so this Dao Exchange Conference will be her punishment.”
Yang Kai sighed, “This matter started because of me, I was the one who harmed Senior Sister Qu.”
Yue He asked, “Young Master, could it be because of last time…”
Yang Kai nodded solemnly, “The 36 Cave Heaven and 72 Paradise have been linked together since ancient times, so they cannot fight together. Senior Sister Qu broke this taboo last time.”
Yue He whispered, “What should we do?”
Yang Kai said, “I’m preparing to go to Yin-Yang Cave Heaven.” He looked at the Proprietress in confusion, “Are there no conflicts or grudges between these 36 Cave Heaven and 72 Paradise? Why is there such a taboo?”
The Proprietress said, “Naturally, there are conflicts and grudges, but they have their own way of resolving them. If their hands and feet are dry, they can just kill them, who can say anything? However, since this matter has already been denounced by the other Cave Heaven Paradise, Yin-Yang Cave Heaven must step forward and give them an explanation. This is the rule.”
“What kind of bullshit rules are these!” Yang Kai said indignantly.
“This matter started because of you, so it’s good that you go to Yin-Yang Cave Heaven. With your current ability, if there is no High Rank Open Heaven, no one in this world will be your opponent. However, you still need to be careful. Although Yin-Yang Cave Heaven often has disciples looking for a husband, disciples like Qu Huachang are still rare. This Dao Exchange Conference will definitely be a gathering of talents, and there will definitely be people participating from the various Cave Heaven Paradise.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai was stunned, “There are also people from other Cave Heaven Paradise participating? Doesn’t Yin-Yang Cave Heaven choice of a son-in-law require them to marry into their family? Are those Cave Heaven Paradise willing to let their disciples who they have cultivated for many years become members of other families?”
The Proprietress smiled and said, “Naturally, the most elite Core Disciples won’t participate in this Dao Exchange Conference, but with the rich heritage of the Cave Heaven Paradise, other than the most elite Core Disciples, there will always be other things to give up. Being able to form a good relationship with the Yin-Yang Cave Heaven is worth it.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai nodded. Although they needed to marry into the family, it was not as if the disciples who married into the family had nothing to do with the Sect. In the future, if anything happened to the Sect, this disciple would definitely be able to contribute a little.
“Proprietress, I have something to worry about right now,” Yang Kai said worriedly.
“What is it?” The Proprietress asked.
Yang Kai said, “Before I broke through to Open Heaven, I already had some Cave Heaven Paradise forces trying to suppress me. Now that I’ve broken through to Open Heaven, if I rashly appear outside, will I attract the murderous intent of some people?”
Outside Shadowless Cave Heaven, there were four High Rank Open Heaven masters. At that time, he had only been an Emperor Realm, but now that he had broken through to the Open Heaven, if someone still wanted to kill him, it would be easy to do so. With the strength of these Cave Heaven Paradise, if they really wanted to attack him, he could only hide in the Void Land, otherwise he would be courting death.
With the two Holy Spirits of the Void Land guarding him, even if someone wanted to kill him, it would be impossible.
The Proprietress smiled and said, “Before you broke through, they suppressed you because they were afraid you would directly become a High Rank master. In fact, their suppression also had an effect. In the eyes of those people, you have only reached the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, so what threat do you pose to them? From their perspective, they have already eliminated any possible dangers. A mere Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage is nothing to them.”
Yang Kai’s eyes lit up, “If that’s the case, after reaching Open Heaven, my situation will be much safer.”
“Then there’s no problem,” Yang Kai nodded slightly.
After chatting with the Proprietress for a while longer, Yang Kai left.
The Proprietress would soon enter seclusion to break through to the Seventh Order. Outsiders wouldn’t be able to help her, so Yang Kai could only provide her with a bottle of Open Heaven Pill from the Universe Furnace.
This amount of time wouldn’t be too short. After all, the Proprietress had to first restore the foundation she had lost in the Shadowless Cave Heaven before she could break through to the Seventh Order.
There were only two months left until the Yin-Yang Cave Heaven’s Dao Exchange Conference, so it was time to set out.
A few days later, Yang Kai soared into the sky as the Great Array cracked open, allowing him to fly through the void.
On this trip alone, Yue He had wanted to follow him, but Yang Kai had not agreed.
He is now a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master, and his strength was far beyond that of an ordinary Sixth Order. In all of these 3000 Worlds, only a High Rank Open Heaven master could injure him.
In case he encountered any danger, it would be easier for him to act alone.
What’s more, the nature of this Dao Exchange is to find a husband for Qu Huachang, and Yang Kai still didn’t know how to handle this matter. Bringing Yue He along with him wouldn’t be appropriate.
The long road was long and empty, so Yang Kai hurried along like lightning.
Outside the Void Territory’s gate, on a Shattered Spirit Province, a beautiful figure stood quietly, seemingly standing there for a long time. Only after seeing Yang Kai’s figure rush out of the Domain Gate did she snort lightly, “At least you’re somewhat responsible!”
This person was Su Yingxue, whom Yang Kai had met last time.
After confirming that Yang Kai had left the Void Territory, Su Yingxue’s expression became much gentler. Her figure flickered as she rushed towards the Domain Gate. A moment later, she followed Yang Kai through the Domain Gate and immediately sent out a message.
Looking up, Yang Kai’s figure had already left a small black dot in her field of vision, and it was unknown how far he had run. Su Yingxue’s lips curled up into a smile, “Let’s see how strong you are first. If your strength is too low, you won’t be able to match up to that little girl Qu.”
In the distance, Yang Kai followed the Universe Chart's directions and rushed towards the next Domain Gate.
Half a day later, Yang Kai suddenly looked up and saw a stream of light rushing towards him at an astonishing speed.
