In the void, several people stopped.
Yang Kai looked around and asked, “Is this the place?”
The middle-aged man with a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation nodded, “Yes!”
“Call the door,” Yang Kai said.
The middle-aged man struggled for a moment before shouting, “Divine Monarch, Yang Kai has arrived. Please open the array!”
As soon as he finished speaking, the void became silent and there was no response.
The middle-aged man shouted again, but there was still no response.
Yang Kai turned his head to look at him and narrowed his eyes slightly, only to see that his face had turned pale as if he had lost his parents, his voice trembling as he said, “Divine Monarch, please open the formation!”
“Are you sure it’s here?” Yang Kai asked impatiently.
The middle-aged man nodded somewhat absentmindedly, “This is the right place.”
Yang Kai frowned, not understanding why he had such a reaction. However, if Bright Sun Divine Monarch really was hiding here and didn’t open the Array, he must be afraid of Hong Hu.
He probably didn’t expect that the Phoenix Clan would appear this time. Although he was an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage master, if he were to face an expert like Hong Hu, he would definitely not be able to win.
With this thought in mind, the Space Laws rose up like a stone thrown into a calm lake. With his body as the center, ripples spread out in all directions, distorting the surrounding space.
On the side, Hong Hu’s eyes flashed with a brilliant light as she raised her hand slightly, feeling the profoundness of the power of space. This was the first time she had seen such a strange power, so she couldn’t help feeling curious.
At first, there weren’t many changes in the void, but as time passed, the spatial energy fluctuations that rippled out became extremely weak, as if it was a river that was flowing along with the current, encountering a large rock.
Yang Kai looked in that direction and his Space Laws became even more violent.
Gradually, the weak fluctuations became more obvious.
After half an hour, even Hong Hu and the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage who didn’t understand the Space Laws noticed something was wrong.
In the void, under the stirring of the Space Laws, it was clear that a large space was different from its surroundings.
This place was none other than the entrance to the Universe Cave Heaven where Bright Sun Divine Monarch lived!
Yang Kai wanted to try again, but just as he was about to forcefully break open the entrance, a series of distortions suddenly appeared and a door opened on its own. Immediately after, Bright Sun Divine Monarch stepped out from it and shouted, “I didn’t know Venerable Hong Hu would be here, please forgive my lack of hospitality!”
Saying so, he turned to look at his two subordinates and coldly said, “What use do I have for you incompetent fools?”
Hearing this, the two men’s expressions changed drastically and they both begged for mercy.
Bright Sun Divine Monarch didn’t care about this and simply raised his hand, releasing the power of an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage, filling the void with its majestic power.
With a single palm strike, the heads of the two Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters were smashed to pieces, and their headless corpses swayed as the World Force dissipated!
Yang Kai narrowed his eyes slightly.
Hong Hu coldly snorted, “Divine Monarch is so powerful!”
This Bright Sun had killed two of his subordinates right in front of her, clearly demonstrating his strength! Although she had lived in the Ancestral Land for a long time and this was the first time she had come to this outside world, Hong Hu knew that a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator was not some random cabbage.
In any of the 3000 Worlds, a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator would be able to hold their own, and without the High Rank of the Cave Heaven Paradise, a Sixth Order was the strongest!
“Venerable Hong Hu, please calm your anger. Bright Sun's actions are not what you think. It’s just that Venerable has been living in the Holy Spirit Ancestral Land for a long time and is unaware of the situation in the Shattered Heaven.”
Yang Kai’s eyes flashed for a moment before he came to his senses and whispered to Hong Hu, “For the many masters hiding in Shattered Heaven, their hiding place is the best and last line of defense. A hidden place cannot be easily exposed, otherwise there will be endless trouble.”
If the two Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage had only brought Yang Kai here, it would have been fine, but now they had actually brought Hong Hu here as well. Bright Sun Divine Monarch couldn’t kill her to silence her, so he could only vent his anger on them.
This time, they bring Yang Kai and Hong Hu here, but if they were captured by the masters of the Cave Heaven Paradise, wouldn’t they be inviting wolves into their home? At that time, where would Bright Sun Divine Monarch hide?
However, although this was the case, only Yang Kai, who was proficient in the Space Laws, could forcefully open the door to the Universe Cave Heaven. As for the others, even if an Eighth Order Open Heaven came, even if they knew the location, they might not be able to do anything to Bright Sun Divine Monarch. [Hoogsway: hmm, but even a seventh order could force open the Pear Flower Cave Heaven. hmmm]
Bright Sun Divine Monarch had been unable to conceal himself because he was afraid of Hong Hu. Seeing that his home was about to be forcibly opened, he could only reveal himself.
“Guests from afar, please!” Bright Sun Divine Monarch stretched out his hand.
Hong Hu nodded lightly and stepped inside. Yang Kai shot a glance at Qin Fen before following closely behind.
Entering the gate, Yang Kai saw Bright Sun Divine Monarch leading the way. Looking around, Yang Kai raised his brow and asked, “Divine Monarch, is this Universe Cave Heaven?”
“That’s right!” Bright Sun Divine Monarch nodded, “I don’t know which Senior left this Universe Cave Heaven behind, but when this King came to Shattered Heaven, I once fought a battle with someone. In one of the battles, I was lucky enough to find traces of this Universe Cave Heaven, but it took me three hundred years to find the entrance and another hundred years to enter.”
Saying so, he looked at Yang Kai meaningfully, “I’ve long heard that the Space Laws are incomparably profound, and I was fortunate enough to see it with my own eyes, but seeing it again today, this King is truly shocked!”
It had taken him several hundred years to open the door to the Universe Cave Heaven and occupy this place, but Yang Kai had only spent less than two hours to open it.
In comparison, Bright Sun Divine Monarch was so upset he nearly vomited blood, but he also knew that he couldn’t be envious of such a thing. The Space Laws weren’t something anyone could cultivate.
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Divine Monarch is too kind, it’s just that there are specialties.”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch raised his brow slightly, “With Little Brother’s skills, perhaps we can cooperate in some places.”
Yang Kai was surprised, “Cooperate with what?”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch said, “Shattered Heaven is vast and boundless, with opportunities and risks coexisting. There are many Universe Cave Heaven and Universe Paradise, but because we don’t know how to explore them, there aren’t many that have been excavated so far. Most of them have always been hidden in the void, and even this King knows that there are at least five places that are likely to contain Universe Cave Heaven or Universe Paradise. Unfortunately, none of them are certain. If you can cooperate with this King and explore these five places together, why would you worry about not being able to find anything good? As far as I know, the World Spring you obtained was found in one of the Universe Cave Heaven, right?”
Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat. If it was really as Bright Sun Divine Monarch said, cooperating with him wasn’t a bad idea, but he didn’t want to act too proactively in case he was manipulated by Bright Sun Divine Monarch.
Therefore, although he was tempted, Yang Kai still maintained his composure and said, “That may be the case, but I don’t have much time. To be honest, Divine Monarch, I’ve been away from home for a long time and I’m eager to return. If I hadn’t met your two subordinates halfway and learned that Xia Linlang was a guest here, I’m afraid I would have already left Shattered Heaven.”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch chuckled, “Brother Yang is quite homesick.”
He didn’t comment.
As the two of them spoke, Hong Hu silently followed behind them, not showing any intention of expressing her opinion.
Not long after, the group of four arrived at a Spirit Peak and landed. A few figures immediately rushed out from the palace.
It was Xia Linlang and her subordinates.
Seeing Qin Fen and Yang Kai arrive together, everyone was stunned for a moment before revealing worried expressions.
However, after recognizing Hong Hu, Xia Linlang immediately relaxed.
She had once been a guest at Four Phoenix Pavilion in the Ancestral Land, so she naturally knew Hong Hu’s identity.
She quickly stepped forward and bowed, “Greetings, Venerable Hong Hu.”
Hong Hu nodded slightly, “No need to be so polite.”
Since they didn’t have any deep friendship, they could only be considered strangers who had met by chance, so there was no need for them to speak much.
Xia Linlang didn’t quite understand what was happening and glanced over at Yang Kai. Yang Kai smiled and said, “When I came out from the Ancestral Land, I ran into Brother Qin and heard that you were a guest of the Divine Monarch, so I came to take a look.”
Xia Linlang understood and nodded, “Divine Monarch knows that my residence has been destroyed, so he invited me to stay here for a few days. Divine Monarch is very hospitable, so it’s not convenient for me to refuse. I’ve caused trouble for Divine Monarch these past few days.”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch smiled and waved his hand, “If you want, it doesn’t matter how long you stay here.” With a look of ‘I’m very hospitable’, anyone who didn’t know the truth would think that Xia Linlang had been invited here as a guest.
“It’s not appropriate to disturb Divine Monarch for too long,” Xia Linlang said as she looked towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai nodded, “I also have some matters to attend to, so I can’t stay here for long.”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch quickly said, “Since you’ve come from afar, you should allow this King to play the role of a host. I won’t hide it from you, this King has very few guests here. I’ve already arranged a banquet for you, so it won’t be too late to leave after you’ve eaten.”
Yang Kai turned to look at Hong Hu, who nodded slightly.
Bright Sun is an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so although he couldn’t do anything to them due to pressure, he still had to give him some face.
Only then did Yang Kai nod and say, “Since this is the case, we will not refuse Divine Monarch!”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch laughed heartily, “Of course! Please!”
After leading everyone to another Spirit Peak’s main hall, a banquet was set up and the guests and host sat down. Delicacies were served like flowing water while young women danced and sang below to enhance the atmosphere.
Yang Kai and Bright Sun Divine Monarch were like old friends who had not seen each other for many years, constantly raising their cups.
Hong Hu wasn’t interested in wine, dancing, or anything like that, but she was quite interested in the beautiful and delicious fruits.
Xia Linlang and the others all wore complicated expressions, never having expected that just a day ago, they had been a prisoner, but in the blink of an eye, they had become honored guests. The sudden change in status made them feel like they were in a dream.
After three rounds of wine, Bright Sun Divine Monarch's face flushed red as he raised his cup and said, “Brother Yang, if you really want to calculate it, the friendship between you and me is quite deep. This King rarely admires anyone, but I do admire you! You were the first to escape from this King’s hands with a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation!”
