Being defeated by yang kai in the trial was their own fault, so there was nothing to complain about. In the end, yang kai was able to give lang ya some face, so they were very grateful.
But this couldn’t erase their desire to beat up yang kai.
Now that they had fought, most of the resentment in their heart had dissipated.
One of them suddenly took out a jade bottle and handed it to yang kai with a pleasant expression, “junior brother yang, do you want to know about the healing pills specially made in lang ya paradise?”
Swish swish swish…
One jade bottle after another was taken out and placed in front of yang kai.
Yang kai roared, “don’t go too far!”
Senior sister zhou sneered, “what goes around comes around. What you did to us before, we’re just returning it to you. Don’t waste time, a single healing pill is worth a set of sixth grade resources.”
“don’t even think about it!” Yang kai reached out and covered his space ring.
How could he possibly spit out what he had just eaten? This was his biggest gain from this experience, a resource worth tens of billions of open heaven pills!
Senior sister zhou’s face sank, “it seems junior brother is still not clear about his situation!”
Yang kai gritted his teeth, “this is what you forced me… dragon transformation!”
Many of the lower-level lang ya disciples witnessed an extremely bizarre scene today. In the sky above flowerless spirit province, a giant golden dragon over a thousand zhang long soared into the sky, its head shaking and its tail swaying.
Dragon clan! And a big dragon at that!
Many people had never seen such a scene in their entire lives, but who would have thought that it would appear in lang ya paradise? The low-level disciples didn’t know why, nor did they know why this golden dragon had suddenly appeared in lang ya paradise. Could it be that the sect had raised a big dragon?
In the end, lang ya’s many sixth grade materials were not retrieved, and the moment yang kai transformed into a big dragon, everyone was intimidated by his terrifying dragon prestige. Yang kai took this opportunity to break through the spirit province’s spirit array and escape.
Looking at the giant golden dragon’s figure, the many lang ya open heaven masters finally understood why their strength was so insignificant in front of yang kai when they were all sixth order.
Even eldest senior brother yue mang, who had comprehended the opportunity to break through, was not his opponent.
This yang fellow looked like a mere sixth order on the surface, but in reality, he was actually a big dragon, an existence capable of fighting against a high rank open heaven. Lang ya open heaven immediately felt that they had lost fair and square!
Inside the main hall, the bruised yang kai glared angrily at li yuan wang, who simply sipped his tea as if nothing had happened.
After a long time, li yuan wang finally said, “be content, you have gained a lot on this trip. This king doesn’t expect you to spit it out. It’s just a beating, nothing important.”
Yang kai sneered, “sect master li only know to talk. Why don’t you go get beaten up?”
Li yuan wang’s neck stiffened, “who dares?”
Yang kai coldly snorted, “i don’t care, in any case, lang ya will compensate me for my losses.”
Li yuan wang laughed angrily, “you still want us to compensate for the losses? You’ve already snatched away several tens of billions of open heaven pills, what kind of losses do you have?”
Yang kai’s fingers tapped heavily on the armrest of his chair as he said seriously, “sect master li, i’m bleeding for lang ya! It’s fine if you don’t help me, but at the last moment, you even tricked me. Is this something a human should do?”
Li yuan wang thought for a moment before suddenly standing up and walking over to yang kai.
“what?” Yang kai looked at him vigilantly.
Li yuan wang bowed deeply, “it was this king's fault for not considering things carefully. Martial nephew, please forgive me, this li apologizes to you!”
Yang kai’s jaw dropped. This guy… was too shameless. After all, he is a seventh order open heaven cultivator and the sect master of lang ya paradise, how could he apologize so easily?
However, since li yuan wang, as a senior, was acting like this, yang kai really couldn’t pursue the matter any further.
He had suffered a great loss!
After sitting down again, li yuan wang asked seriously, “did martial nephew gain anything from this trial?”
Yang kai naturally knew what he was asking, so after a moment of silence, he said, “gu ling’er, chang anyi, liang qiuhong, jiang yan!”
Li yuan wang’s eyes narrowed slightly. Although he had hoped that yang kai would be able to discover something in this trial, when the results came out, he couldn’t help feeling his heart ache!
These four people were all well-known figures amongst lang ya’s sixth order open heaven!
“are you certain?” Li yuan wang asked solemnly.
Yang kai nodded, “certain!”
These four people had all said "ink will last forever" to him, and only the inked would do so. Although yang kai didn’t feel any ink power from these four people, there was nothing unusual about them before they were exposed, just like shi zheng.
The power of ink was extremely mysterious. Unless one investigated the small universe or the inked reveal themselves, it would be difficult for others to detect it!
“right now, we can only confirm these four. As for the others, i’m not sure if there are any more inked hiding here.”
After all, not every inked would say such a thing to him at a critical moment. If someone continued to hide, yang kai wouldn’t be able to confirm it.
Li yuan wang looked up towards gao ting.
Gao ting said thoughtfully, “gu ling’er is a disciple with a gentle and kind temperament and looks quite good. Among all of lang ya’s disciples and elders, her popularity is extremely high. Zong yuquan presides over the star city harbor and can be considered to have great authority. Chang anyi is one of the outer sect’s elders and has a special position. He is able to come into contact with many of the lower-ranking disciples with great potential. Liang qiuhong guards one of lang ya’s forbidden areas and has an extraordinary status. Jiang yan is in charge of lang ya’s business affairs, so his authority is not small!”
Li yuan wang’s eyes flashed brightly, “you mean…”
Gao ting said, “the hidden black ink clan seems to taget these people among lang ya open heavens, and all of the chosen ones are responsible for something.”
Lang ya has so many sixth order open heaven masters, and although all of them were outer sect elders, most open heaven stage masters didn’t have any official positions in lang ya, outer sect elders were just names that had no authority.
It wasn’t that lang ya didn’t care, but rather that most open heaven stage cultivators didn’t want to get involved in these miscellaneous matters and only wanted to focus on cultivating the martial dao. It was the same for the various cave heaven paradise!
However, the people yang kai spoke of all carried heavy responsibilities in lang ya!
Gao ting added, “and they all have one thing in common!”
Li yuan wang nodded, “within two hundred years, these people all have a chance to break through to the seventh order!”
“that makes sense!” Gao ting showed a look of understanding.
Previously, they had been wondering why the black ink clan transform a sixth order open heaven into inked. After all, according to the ancient records of the sect, the black ink clan will only transform the seventh order open heaven master. Now, it seemed that these inked sixth order open heaven masters had a chance to break through to the seventh order within two hundred years.
Compared to the sixth order and seventh order, the former was naturally easier to turn into inked, and it wouldn’t take long for them to break through.
If they were from the black ink clan, they would do the same.
With this information, it would be simple to investigate further. As long as they could find the disciples who had hopes of breaking through to the seventh order in a short period of time and were carrying heavy responsibilities in lang ya, the hidden inked cultivators would naturally be exposed.
“what a pity!” Gao ting sighed lightly, “this time’s trial is only aimed at the sixth order. We don’t know who among the seventh order is inked, the ink seventh order is my lang ya's greatest hidden danger!”
Every seventh order was an inner sect elder with a great amount of power. For example, shi zheng was lang ya’s foreign envoy. His ink transformation was a huge loss to lang ya.
Yang kai smiled and said, “perhaps those hidden inked seventh order open heaven masters will soon be exposed.”
Li yuan wang and Gao ting both looked at him, the former asking, “do you have some ideas?”
Yang kai shook his head, “i don’t have any ideas, but in this world there is a method called alerting the enemy. Now that the grass has been beaten, this snake probably can’t hold back anymore!”
Li yuan wang and Gao ting were both puzzled at first, but soon came to a realization.
Gao ting asked, “is this why you transformed into a big dragon?”
Yang kai replied, “i’m just going with the flow!” In the previous situation, if he hadn’t transformed into a big dragon, it would have been impossible for him to escape from the encirclement of several hundred sixth order open heaven.
The dragon clan is the head of the holy spirit! The power of the holy spirit had a natural suppression and repulsion towards the ink's power. If it weren’t for that, in ancient times, the dragon and phoenix clans wouldn’t have sacrificed half of their ancestral land’s power to seal the giant spiritual god.
Under the corrosion of the ancestral qi for countless years, even the giant spiritual god that had been transformed into ink had been destroyed, showing just how tyrannical the holy spirit power was.
Yang kai had transformed into a big dragon and had been witnessed by hundreds of sixth order open heaven. Even the low-level disciples in the nearby spirit province had witnessed it, so this news would definitely reach the ears of the inked seventh order.
Since that was the case, the inked seventh order cultivator would definitely be suspicious.
Since yang kai was a big dragon, is he really inked? It was also possible for a holy spirit to be turned into ink, but it was more difficult.
As long as they were suspicious, the person hiding behind the scenes would find a way to verify it!
Li yuan wang suddenly asked, “check what jiang yan is doing right now.”
Gao ting understood and quickly sent out a message.
A moment later, gao ting raised his head and said, “jiang yan just took some people out in the name of commerce and also brought a lot of supplies. He said he was going to deliver them to the star boundary for the disciples there to cultivate!”
Li yuan wang’s eyes narrowed, “sure enough, he can't sit still!”
At this time, the trial had just ended, and jiang yan had not yet recovered from his injuries, but he still had to go to the star boundary. Obviously, he was going to find shi zheng to verify yang kai’s identity.
Gao ting asked, “should we stop them?”
Li yuan wang waved his hand, “no need, this trip to the star boundary will take at least a few months. If we really stop jiang yan, yang kai’s identity will be exposed! If we let him go, it will at least be a few months of buffer time.”
Gao ting frowned, “then what should we do?”
Li yuan wang tapped his fingers lightly on the table, “wait, if someone asks jiang yan to look for shi zheng for information, he may not be able to sit still. Who knows, he may soon reveal some kind of trap.”
Turning to yang kai, he said, “nephew, this li thanks you for your contribution to lang ya.”
Yang kai waved his hand, “this matter concerns the black ink clan, not lang ya’s family.”
Li yuan wang sighed, “nephew is a wise man, but after this, you may have to face some danger. If you feel it’s inappropriate, you can leave now. We will handle lang ya’s matter.”
Yang kai smiled, “if you don’t enter the tiger’s den, how can you obtain a tiger’s cub?”
