When Bright Sun Divine Monarch first heard that the World Spring was obtained by a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, he was overjoyed. With his ability, what did a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator count for? He had thought he would be able to obtain it easily, but who would have thought that Yang Kai would give him such a big surprise.
The strength of a Sixth Order Open Heaven cultivator was indeed nothing in front of him, but because the other party was proficient in the Space Laws and was adept at escaping, he was unable to catch up.
After that, he escaped into the Divine Ability Sea, making it difficult for him to back down.
If it weren’t for Yang Kai wanting to borrow his strength to leave the Divine Ability Sea, Bright Sun Divine Monarch would have long since been thrown into that shattered space.
If that was really the case, even if he was an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, he would still be trapped inside and never be able to escape. He had personally experienced how strange the Shattered Space was.
As such, Bright Sun Divine Monarch's admiration for Yang Kai wasn’t entirely false, he was actually quite sincere.
After staying in the Ancestral Land for some time, Bright Sun learned that Yang Kai had a great relationship with the Dragon Clan, and now that he had a Phoenix Clan master personally escorting him, there was no need to think about the World Spring anymore. He didn’t have the courage to become enemies with the Ancestral Land’s Phoenix Clan.
The Phoenix Clan was an existence even stronger than the Kun Clan.
However, after experiencing so much, if he could cooperate with Yang Kai somewhere else, he might be able to make up for his losses.
Thus, after Bright Sun Divine Monarch opened the door to his Universe Cave Heaven, he became extremely enthusiastic.
After three rounds of drinking, he brought up the old topic again, “Little Brother, in Shattered Heaven, I have connections. You have the ability, if you and I work together, we will definitely be invincible. Does Little Brother not consider?”
Yang Kai held his wine cup and looked at him with a smile, “Divine Monarch, are you referring to the matter of Universe Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven?”
“Of course!” Bright Sun nodded. In Shattered Heaven, only unearthing the treasures left behind by their predecessors could interest him, an Eighth Order Open Heaven master. Perhaps he could find something good.
Yang Kai was just about to refuse when he suddenly remembered that after Xia Linlang’s Pear Flower Cave Heaven was destroyed, she seemed to have lost her home. The Pear Flower Cave Heaven being destroyed had something to do with him, but she didn’t want to leave Shattered Heaven. If he left now, where would she go?
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai asked, “Previously, the Divine Monarch said that there were five or six locations that seemed to be Universe Cave Heaven or Universe Paradise?”
Seeing Yang Kai’s interest, Bright Sun Divine Monarch immediately raised his brow, “Not just that, these five or six places are only the most likely. If you count the other places, there are probably more than a dozen. However, although this King has the cultivation of an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage master, I am unable to enter those places, nor am I able to determine if there are any gates there, but if Little Brother were to take action, the situation would naturally be different.”
Yang Kai had easily found the door to his Universe Cave Heaven, and if he hadn’t shown up in time, it really would have been forced open. This was the result of his many years of management. The Universe Cave Heaven and Universe Paradise scattered all over the Shattered Heaven were now ownerless, making it even more difficult to resist the power of the Space Laws.
Yang Kai sipped his wine, a look of indecision on his face.
Bright Sun struck while the iron was hot and said, “Little Brother, don’t worry, I won’t let you work for nothing. Venerable Hong Hu is also here, so we can ask her to be our witness.”
Yang Kai looked up at him, “Divine Monarch means…”
“Every Universe Cave Heaven and Universe that has not been discovered by anyone must have all of its previous owner’s possessions left behind. If little brother can help me find the location and open the door, this King is willing to share 30:70 of the wealth with little brother!”
Yang Kai looked at him with a smile, “I'm 70% and Divine Monarch 30%?”
Brigtht Sun said seriously, “Little Brother must be joking. Exploring those Universe Cave Heaven and Universe Paradise requires a great deal of time and energy, and there may be some unpredictable risks, so this King will naturally take the most. Little Brother, after all, you’re just opening the door, so there’s no need for you to worry about the rest. Just sit down and divide the money.”
Yang Kai shook his head, “Thirty percent is too little. If that’s the case, I might as well go home and pull out a group of people to do it myself. At that time, no matter how many things I excavate, they will all be mine.”
Bright Sun smiled and said, “If I didn’t have Little Brother’s ability, I wouldn’t have asked you to cooperate with me, but even if you are proficient in the Space Laws, without any clues, how many Universe Cave Heaven and Universe Paradise can you find? Shattered Heaven is vast and boundless, perhaps even if you spend hundreds or thousands of years, you may not be able to find a single door. Cooperating with this king is different, I can point out a few locations for you so you don’t have to waste time and effort.”
Yang Kai nodded, “Divine Monarch's words are reasonable, but since the Divine Monarch wants to cooperate with me, he should at least show some sincerity, so there’s no need to mention anything else.”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch wore a pained expression and hesitated for a long time before suddenly gulping down a cup of wine and placing it on the table, solemnly declaring, “40:60, this King 60%, this Little Brother 40%! Just consider this King a friend of Little Brother’s.”
Yang Kai still shook his head and clap, “Let's split it evenly!”
Bright Sun said bitterly, “Brother, you’re asking for too much!”
Yang Kai tapped the table lightly, “This is my bottom line. If it doesn’t work out, I can make friends with Divine Monarch, but there’s no need to mention this matter again. To be honest, Divine Monarch, I really do have some matters to attend to and need to return home as soon as possible. Venerable Hong Hu also came here for this reason.”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch glanced at Hong Hu, seemingly wanting to confirm if Yang Kai’s words were true, but Hong Hu lowered her head to deal with the little Spirit Fruit in her hand, unable to tell.
After a moment of hesitation, Bright Sun said, “Fifty-fifty isn’t out of the question, but this King has two conditions that require Little Brother and Venerable Hong Hu to agree to.”
Hong Hu looked up at him and smiled, “You two were just chatting, how did you get me involved?”
Bright Sun said seriously, “This matter really needs Venerable to step in.”
Hong Hu asked curiously, “Tell me about it.”
Bright Sun tore off his clothes and revealed his chest. When everyone looked over, Xia Linlang gasped while Yang Kai showed a look of realization.
On his chest, scales that looked like fish scales appeared, extending from his chest to his waist.
Bright Sun said, “The last time I entered the Holy Spirit Ancestral Land, I was corrupted by the Ancestral Qi and showed signs of Monster Transformation. Although I managed to withdraw in time, I was unable to completely protect myself. After a few years of rest and recuperation, most of the Ancestral Qi has been neutralized by me, but there are still a few that are like maggots in my bones that cannot be dispelled. I would like to ask Senior to help me resolve this crisis.”
The Ancestral Qi in the Ancestral Land was an extremely strange type of energy, one that could even suppress a powerful Holy Spirit like the Giant Spiritual God. Although Bright Sun Divine Monarch is an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, he had been contaminated by the Ancestral Qi and had been in great pain.
If he was a Holy Spirit, then so be it, the Ancestral Qi will only be beneficial to him, but he was a pure human race, so the Ancestral Qi was like a poison to him.
Fortunately, he hadn’t been contaminated too much at the time, otherwise he would have long since transformed into a Monster and lost his consciousness.
Hong Hu frowned at him for a moment before saying, “I need to investigate first to determine if I can help you.”
Bright Sun nodded, “No problem!”
Saying so, his figure flashed and appeared in front of Hong Hu. Hong Hu raised her hand and gently tapped the scales on his chest.
Specks of light flickered on Hong Hu's fingertips as they swam across the scales.
A moment later, Hong Hu stopped.
Bright Sun Divine Monarch looked at her nervously.
Hong Hu said, “It’s all thanks to your profound cultivation that you managed to disperse more than half of the Ancestral Qi in the past few years, preventing the remaining energy from eroding your body further. Otherwise, even I wouldn’t have been able to help you.”
Bright Sun was overjoyed when he heard this, “Does Senior mean you can help me resolve this Ancestral Qi?”
Hong Hu nodded, “Give me three days.”
“Many thanks, Senior!” Bright Sun let out a long sigh, feeling as if a heavy stone had been lifted from his heart. Ever since he left the Ancestral Land, he had not had a good time.
The Ancestral Qi was extremely strange and difficult to dispel. Normally, it wouldn’t affect his life, but it would greatly affect his cultivation. Moreover, every time he used it, the Ancestral Qi would become restless, causing him to be on edge.
Now that he had obtained Hong Hu’s assurance, the mood he had been suppressing for the past few years suddenly became much better.
“The Kun Clan’s way of doing things is too outrageous. I’ll help you talk to them later,” Hong Hu said.
Bright Sun was startled, “I wouldn’t dare, I wouldn’t dare. It’s just that I’m not capable enough.” Although he had been forced by the Kun Clan to enter the Sealing Demon Land and had been contaminated with so much Ancestral Qi, he didn’t dare say anything.
If the Kun Clan from the Ancestral Land attacked him, even ten lives wouldn’t be enough.
Yang Kai opened his mouth and said, “The first request has been fulfilled, what about the second request of Divine Monarch?”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch smiled and said, “This second request is quite difficult and may never be fulfilled.”
“Divine Monarch, feel free to speak.” Yang Kai stretched out his hand.
“Brother and I got to know each other because of one of the Universe Four Pillars, the World Spring. I’m not afraid of Brother’s ridicule, but I’ve always been thinking about the Universe Four Pillars in one of the Universe Cave Heaven or Universe Paradise. After all, three thousand years ago, the Mystery Fish appeared, and three thousand years later, there was a World Spring. This means that although the Universe Four Pillars were rare in ancient times, they were not extinct. My second request is that if I can find the Universe Four Big Pillars or Universe Twelve Small Pillars during our cooperation, this King will take them. After all, to me, ordinary things are no longer of much use, but the Universe Four Pillars or the Universe Twelve Small Pillars are extremely useful. Of course, if there really is such a fate, this King won’t take them for free, it can be counted as my profit!”
This request wasn’t too excessive. Bright Sun Divine Monarch should still be obsessed with the World Spring, but now that Yang Kai was involved with the Ancestral Land’s Holy Spirit, he couldn’t do anything about it and could only settle for the next best thing.
Yang Kai nodded quickly, “Sure!” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “However, Divine Monarch has two requests, and I also have one. I don’t know if Divine Monarch will agree.”
Bright Sun Divine Monarch smiled and said, “Since Little Brother is so straightforward, this King naturally agree. If Little Brother has any requests, feel free to ask.”
Yang Kai said, “After developing the Universe Cave Heaven, I need one, and I need Divine Monarch's guarantee that the location of the Universe Cave Heaven will never be disclosed to anyone.”
