But now that the Profound Pill Sect had learned of his existence and Gao Xinpeng had sent someone to invite him, if he were to refuse rashly, it would only arouse suspicion and make him more suspicious.
It seemed like he has to go to this Profound Pill Sect.
But then again, if he could really integrate into the Profound Pill Sect, it would be a good thing. Although he had just broken through to the Heaven Rank two months ago, with the cultivation speed of the Heaven Devouring Battle Law, it would only take a few years for him to break through to the Spirit Rank. At that time, he would need the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill.
The Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill is a Spirit Pill, and even in the entire Divine Weapon World, there weren’t many forces that possessed such a pill recipe, and all of these forces were top-class existences in this world.
If Yang Kai wanted to obtain the recipe for the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill from these forces, the chances were not high. If he could integrate it into the Profound Pill Sect, perhaps he could obtain the recipe for the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill from them.
So in general, there were advantages and disadvantages to going to Profound Pill Sect.
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai quickly made up his mind. Riches and honor came from danger, so this Profound Pill Sect was worth going to. As long as he was careful, he shouldn’t expose anything. After all, even Gao Xinpeng had been fooled by him.
Thinking so, Yang Kai nodded and said, “Since it is Senior Brother Gao’s orders, I will naturally obey, but my Void Spirit Sword Sect…”
Gao Ming said, “Pill Master Yang, don’t worry, you are now a Heaven Pill Master and a disciple of Profound Pill Sect. As long as you release some news, no one will dare to do anything to Void Spirit Sword Sect.”
Yang Kai thought about it and agreed. In the Divine Weapon World, no one was willing to offend a Heaven Pill Master, especially one who was related to Profound Pill Sect.
“In that case, please wait here for a few days. I’ll arrange the matters of my Sect and then accompany you to Profound Pill Sect.”
Gao Ming had no objections.
For the next two days, Yang Kai was busy with various trivial matters of the Void Spirit Sword Sect. This trip to the Profound Pill Sect was somewhat risky, so he didn’t plan on bringing anyone with him. Moreover, there were only two Heaven Rank masters in the Void Spirit Sword Sect, so there was no point in bringing them along. It would be better to leave them behind to guard the place.
With Li Zhengqing and Zhuang Juhe guarding the Void Spirit Sword Sect, they would at least be able to deal with some small fry.
Yang Kai then refined a few more Ten Revolutions Heartless Pills and handed them over to Su Changfa, in case someone needed to break through in the future but didn’t have any pills to use. The Sect has a black jade mine, as well as various industries owned by Heavenly Net Residence and Tiger's Roar Sect, which was enough for a long time to develop.
Yang Kai also made arrangements for his Junior Brothers and Sisters. Wan Yingying and the other two Junior Brothers now had some experience in Alchemy, so they had no problem concocting some body refining medicines. What they lacked now was cultivation.
However, this could not be resolved in a short time.
Yang Kai left a copy of his Pill Refining experience to Wan Yingying, which contained many pill recipe. With this thing in hand, even if Yang Kai didn’t personally guide her, Wan Yingying would still be able to practice Pill Refining by herself.
After everything was settled, two days later, outside the mountain gate, Yang Kai bid farewell to the Sect’s Elders, Junior Brothers, and Sisters. Su Changfa and the others were all somewhat worried. After this farewell, they didn’t know when they would be able to see each other again. Moreover, Yang Kai was going to a far away place, so as the Elders, Su Changfa and the others were naturally worried.
Wan Yingying, on the other hand, was crying her eyes out as she grabbed Yang Kai’s clothes.
“Alright, don’t cry, I’ll come back to visit everyone in a few days,” Yang Kai wiped the tears from the corners of Wan Yingying’s eyes. If he wasn’t afraid that he would cause some kind of trouble in the Profound Pill Sect, he could have brought Wan Yingying with him and taught her personally. However, after all, his future was uncertain, bringing Wan Yingying with him might harm her.
“Eldest Senior Brother, take care of yourself. If you’re unhappy outside, come back soon!” Wan Yingying sobbed.
“I understand. You two guard the house well. If you need anything, remember to look for me at Profound Pill Sect.”
Turning to Li Zhengqing and Zhuang Juhe, he said, “When I wasn’t around, the Void Spirit Sword Sect relied on you two.”
The two of them cupped their fists and said seriously, “Rest assured, Sir, we will not disappoint you!”
After exchanging a few words with Su Changfa, Gu Kangning, and Hong Xiu, Yang Kai mounted his horse and called out, “Let’s go!”
Gao Ming nodded and led the way. Yang Kai waved to the people behind him and rode down the mountain, quickly disappearing.
The distance to Profound Pill Sect was quite far, at least half a month’s journey, and they would pass through Heavenly Martial City.
However, just as he descended the mountain, Gao Ming suddenly frowned and glanced back as if he had noticed something.
Yang Kai said, “Continue walking, let’s see what she’s up to.”
Gao Ming asked in surprise, “Pill Master Yang also noticed?” It was normal for him, a peak Heaven Rank master, to notice something. Yang Kai had just broken through to the Heaven Rank, so this kind of performance really made him curious.
Yang Kai smiled, “We Alchemists may not be good at other things, but our senses are extremely sharp, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to accurately control our Pill Fire.”
Gao Ming thought about it and agreed. In terms of perception, Alchemists were indeed stronger than ordinary cultivators, so he immediately obeyed and continued forward.
At a corner of the hill, the two of them stopped and waited quietly.
A moment later, a figure suddenly sped over from behind, and the moment it turned around the foot of the mountain, the figure noticed two pairs of eyes staring straight at her, causing its body to freeze in place.
Gao Ming stared at the beautiful woman who had followed them all the way here, his eyes cold.
The beautiful woman blinked and suddenly clapped her hands, a smile spreading across her face as she said, “What a coincidence, you’re also here. Are you planning to go somewhere far? Where?”
This woman had been knocked unconscious by Yang Kai’s sword last time and now had a small bump on her forehead, making her look quite comical.
Gao Ming coldly asked, “What is your purpose in following us here?”
“Who? Who followed you all the way here?” Hua Rong looked around and then pointed to her nose, “Are you talking about me? This is probably a misunderstanding, I just happened to be rushing here…” Saying so, she couldn’t continue and awkwardly said, “Fine, it seems you don’t believe me.”
Yang Kai shook his head and couldn’t be bothered to argue with her, “Don’t follow me, otherwise I’ll smash your head again!”
He mounted his horse, called out to Gao Ming, and rode forward.
Hua Rong, however, displayed an exquisite movement technique and followed closely behind Yang Kai. As she flew, she asked curiously, “Are you really a Heaven Pill Master? Are you lying to me?”
Yang Kai glanced over at her, wondering what was wrong with this girl. Last time he had smashed a big bag on her head, but now she had shamelessly followed him here.
“Then do you want to recruit guards? The kind that are loyal and easy to raise! Do you think I’m suitable?” Hua Rong ignored Yang Kai and asked.
“I’m really easy to take care of, you just need to give me some cultivation resources every day and then give me some food to eat. I don’t have any other requirements, but if someone wants to harm you, I’ll protect you with all my might,” Hua Rong strongly recommended herself, “Also, I’m not bad looking, you'll be able to see beautiful scenery with me by your side. Of course, you can’t have any improper thoughts, this Young Lady only sells her skills and not her body!”
“How about it, think about it, I’m a Sixth Order Heaven Rank master, very strong!”
Yang Kai really couldn’t stand this girl's incessant chatter, so he grabbed his sword and smashed it down towards her head, shouting, “Evil Demon, watch my sword!”
Shocked, Hua Rong instinctively covered her head with her hands and retreated.
Yang Kai took this opportunity to leave!
Looking at Yang Kai’s departing figure, Hua Rong was about to explode with anger. Gritting her teeth, she quickly followed, but this time she was smart enough not to get too close and simply followed from a distance.
Gao Ming said thoughtfully, “It seems this woman really intends to become Pill Master Yang’s guard. No wonder she can’t be shaken off.”
Yang Kai was speechless, “There is such a person in this world, it’s simply impossible to understand!”
Gao Ming shook his head and said, “Pill Master Yang may not know, but this is a very normal phenomenon. There are many Heaven Rank masters in this world who yearn to become the guard of a Heaven Pill Master, because if they do so, not only will their cultivation resources be guaranteed. Moreover, if the Heaven Pill Master the followed is promoted to the Spirit Pill Master in the future, they won’t need to worry about the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill. This is a very clever approach.”
Although Yang Kai had learned about this information long ago, this was the first time he had encountered it, so he still felt it was somewhat inconceivable. That Hua Rong was at least a Sixth Order Heaven Rank, and her strength wasn’t weak, yet she was so persistent in seeking refuge with him.
“Is it the same for Guard Gao?” Yang Kai asked.
Gao Ming shook his head and said, “I’m different from them. I’m a Blood Servant of the Profound Pill Sect and was born to protect the Sect’s Alchemists. When Pill Master Yang returns to the Profound Pill Sect, he has the qualifications to choose a Blood Servant as his guard.”
“Oh? There’s such a good thing!” Yang Kai was stunned. Thinking back, two days ago when Gao Ming catch Hua Rong, she did mention the existence of the Profound Pill Sect’s Blood Servant, but he didn’t pay much attention to it.
Gao Ming said, “Alchemists spend most of their time and energy on Pill Refining, and most of the time they rely on medicine pill to improve their cultivation, so their personal strength isn’t too strong. In this way, they won’t be able to guarantee their own safety while traveling outside. It’s because of this consideration that the Sect will set up Blood Servant and raise them from a young age. When the Sect’s Alchemists are promoted to Earth Pill Master, they will have a chance to choose a Blood Servant. Once they reach Heaven Rank, they will have another chance, so the Sect’s Heaven Pill Master usually have two Blood Servant and Earth Pill Master only has one. Of course, other than the Sect’s Blood Servant, they can also recruit others from outside, but in this way, the cost of the guards will be up to the Pill Masters themselves.”
Yang Kai was secretly shocked by the methods of the Profound Pill Sect. As Gao Ming had said, the Blood Servant had been raised by the Profound Pill Sect since they were young, so they could be said to be the disciples of the Profound Pill Sect. However, they were only a part of the Profound Pill Sect who were proficient in combat, so there was no need to worry about their loyalty. With the Blood Servant protecting the Profound Pill Sect’s Alchemists, there would be a lot of security when they traveled outside!
Blood Servant… This title was both familiar and distant to Yang Kai. In the past, the Central Capital's Yang Family had a group of Blood Servant, and the meaning of their existence was very similar to Profound Pill Sect.
