Luan Bai Feng had been in the Black Territory for many years, so even if she didn’t know the situation here like the back of her hand, she was far more familiar with it than Yang Kai.

Under her leadership, this journey has no surprise.

Following behind this woman, Yang Kai also activated his Demon Eye of Annihilation to observe the situation around him. The Demon Eye of Annihilation was indeed powerful, Yang Kai could clearly see some traces of the formations. However, because he was not proficient in the Dao of Arrays, he was only able to see them. Unlike Luan Bai Feng, not only was she able to see them, she also had a corresponding method of breaking and evading them!

There were several times when Luan Bai Feng had clearly led him into a formation, but they had miraculously not touched the restrictions.

After a while, a mysterious aura suddenly appeared in the void, and under the guidance of this aura, Yang Kai felt the World Force in his small universe begin to leak out uncontrollably.

Yang Kai let out a cry of surprise and quickly used his strength to seal his small universe, but to no avail, the World Force still slowly dissipated.

“It’s useless,” Luan Bai Feng obviously noticed his actions, “The dangers of the Black Prison are the various restriction formations and the strange aura that surrounds it. No matter what kind of Open Heaven Stage cultivator comes here, they can’t stop the flow of their own World Force. We’ve only just come into contact with the boundary of this aura, and the deeper we go, the stronger this aura becomes, and the greater the loss of World Force. I advise you to start replenishing your strength now, otherwise the further you go, the harder it will be to continue!”

Saying so, she grabbed a handful of Open Heaven Pills and stuffed them into her mouth, silently refining them.

Yang Kai nodded slightly, but didn’t take it too seriously. Although his World Force was fading, it was still very slow, so he didn’t need to worry about it for the time being. Moreover, he also wanted to know what was going on with this aura and why it could cause such a change in his body.

Calmly sensing his surroundings, he found nothing.

However, he remembered his encounter in Shadowless Cave Heaven. Shadowless Astral Winds existed inside Shadowless Cave Heaven, and the essence of these astral winds was a powerful Divine Ability. This Divine Ability enveloped the entire Shadowless Cave Heaven and would occasionally blow into the Open Heaven Stage's small universe, sweeping away the World Force of cultivators.

The Shadowless Cave Heaven was different from the Black Prison’s strange aura. The former is a Divine Ability that could be said to be an external force that had swept away the small universe's foundation, but with the situation in the Black Prison, the small universe's foundation was constantly being drained.

Inside the Shadowless Cave Heaven, he had relied on the Towering Evergreen to resist the Shadowless Astral Wind, but he didn’t know if this Wood Element Divine Ability would be effective against the situation inside the Black Prison.

With this thought in mind, Yang Kai immediately activated the Towering Evergreen, releasing a dark green light and filling the air with a rich vitality. The ancient tree’s branches fell down and wrapped around him and Luan Baifeng.

With the activation of this Secret Technique, the strange aura that had been lingering in the surrounding void was immediately isolated, and the World Force that had been flowing out of his small universe also stopped.

It worked! Yang Kai was overjoyed. The Wood Element energy refined from the essence of the Eternal Tree was indeed extraordinary. Not only could it resist the corrosion of the Shadowless Astral Wind, but it could also isolate this strange aura!

However, after thinking about it carefully, the Eternal Tree was, after all, a supreme treasure of Heaven and Earth. Its grade was extremely high, so it wasn’t strange for it to have such a miraculous effect. Now, the biggest problem was solved.

“What did you do?” Luan Bai Feng’s beautiful eyes stared at Yang Kai in shock. She had clearly felt the changes in her body just now, and the World Force that had been constantly leaking suddenly stopped dissipating. Even that strange aura was not detected, “Isn’t your Divine Ability a healing ability?”

Previously, when she was burned by the Golden Crow True Fire, Yang Kai had used this Towering Evergreen to heal her, but now it seemed that this Secret Technique was not as simple as just healing.

For so many years, she had been trying to find a way to deal with the omnipresent aura of the Black Prison, but she hadn’t been able to find a single clue. She had never expected to see such a miracle happen from Yang Kai today.

“My Divine Ability not only has healing properties but also defensive properties!” Yang Kai explained casually.

Luan Bai Feng’s eyes lit up as she stared at him, “How long can you maintain this Divine Ability? Will it consume too much of your energy?”

Yang Kai chuckled, “If it’s just the two of us, the consumption shouldn’t be too great, it should be able to last for a long time!” He is now a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master, so his foundation was quite deep. With the Towering Evergreen being controlled by him in such a small area, the consumption of his strength was not too great, it could even be said to be negligible. Moreover, there were countless Open Heaven Pills in his Space Ring, so it wasn’t like he didn’t know how to replenish his own consumption.

Luan Bai Feng stared at him with a complicated look in her eyes. The problem that had plagued her for so many years had been solved today, so it would be a lie to say she wasn’t excited. However, when she thought about her current situation and identity, her excitement couldn’t help but fade. After all, even if she could mine the mineral star in the deeper area, the things she could harvest would belong to someone else and had nothing to do with her.

Suddenly feeling depressed, she remained silent the entire way, only using her eye technique to investigate the surrounding formations to guide Yang Kai forward.

More than half a day later, Luan Bai Feng said, “Another hour and we’ll be in an uninhabited area. My mining slaves won’t be able to stay there for too long, it’s been many years since anyone has mined that mineral star.”

Yang Kai nodded, “Those sixth and seventh grade materials were mined from there?”

“Most of them! However, a few of them were obtained from the outside world. Although the output of the Mineral Star outside is a bit thin, it’s not impossible for a sixth grade to appear, it’s just very rare.”

Yang Kai turned to look at her, “I heard that many of your mine slaves were abducted by you, or perhaps they were prisoners of war? Since that’s the case, they definitely aren’t loyal to you, so how can you guarantee that they won’t secretly refine the resources they mined?”

Luan Bai Feng said lightly, “They need to consume World Force to mine ore on a mineral star, and when they’re in the depths of the Black Prison, the World Force is constantly draining away, so how could they have the strength to dissolve the black stone? Not to mention, even if they secretly dissolve the black stone, they may not be able to obtain anything. It’s better to use the black stone they mined to exchange for Open Heaven Pills from me. If their luck is good enough and they manage to extract enough black stone, they can easily exchange it for Open Heaven Pills.”

Yang Kai thought about it for a moment and realized that this black stone didn’t necessarily contain any kind of material. Perhaps it had taken him a great deal of effort to melt a piece of black stone, but to no avail.

To the mine slaves living in the Black Prison, every bit of World Force they possessed was extremely precious. As for escaping? It was also hopeless. The Black Territory’s Formaations could be seen everywhere, and if they accidentally touched something, they would definitely die!

Black Prison was no less dangerous than Shattered Heaven!

As she spoke, Luan Bai Feng raised her head and looked forward, “We’ve arrived. The mineral star up ahead is the deepest part of the mine that my subordinates have mined so far! No one has ever been to an even deeper place.”

Yang Kai looked over and saw a dark mineral star in the sky. This mineral star was not small, even bigger than the Star Boundary. Like all the mineral stars in the Black Territory, it was filled with desolation and lifelessness as it floated quietly in the air.

Luan Bai Feng led him to a certain part of the mineral star, and Yang Kai immediately noticed that there were traces of man-made mining here. It was probably the work of those Sixth Order mine slaves from a long time ago.

However, even a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator would not be able to survive in such an environment for long. After years of mining, the World Force would continued to leak out, weakening their small universe's foundation until they finally collapsed and died.

“What do you want to do? Don’t tell me you want to mine black stones here!” Luan Bai Feng glanced at Yang Kai.

Yang Kai smiled and said, “Do you have any good ideas? If you don’t have any, just do it. Don’t tell me you don’t know how to mine the Black Prison!”

Luan Bai Feng was furious, “You came all the way here just to personally mine the Black Stone? Don’t you think you’re being stupid? Even if you managed to obtain something, there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to obtain a Sixth Grade Yin-Yang attribute resources.”

Yang Kai stroked his chin thoughtfully, “What you say makes sense, but there’s one thing you’re wrong about.”

“What?” Luan Bai Feng frowned.

“It was you who mined the black stone, not me!” Yang Kai raised a finger and waved it in front of her eyes.

Luan Bai Feng blinked, “Then what are you doing?”

Yang Kai calmly replied, “Looking out!”

Luan Bai Feng was about to explode from anger, “Don’t even think about it! A scholar can be killed but not humiliated!”

“Hurry up, don’t waste time. You know you can’t resist my orders, so why do you want to humiliate yourself!”

Luan Bai Feng glared at him fiercely, as if she wanted to eat him alive! Obviously, she was not prepared to compromise on this issue.

However, after Yang Kai took out the Loyalty List and issued the order, no matter how unwilling she was, she had no choice but to become a miner. As she used her Divine Ability, she sent debris flying while gritting her teeth and cursing incessantly.

There was also a method to mine black stones on a mineral star, so Yang Kai quickly understood.

Because the black stone itself could block the detection of one’s Divine Sense, one only needed to spread out one’s Divine Sense to be able to see clearly. The place where these Divine Senses were isolated was where the black stone was located. As long as one could control their strength well, they would naturally be able to obtain some benefits.

Luan Bai Feng is a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master and was extremely powerful, so she was naturally an expert in mining black stones.

Although Yang Kai said he was looking out, he was just making a passing remark. After observing some of the methods, he began to personally mine the ore.

Luan Bai Feng’s anger subsided.

With the two of them working together, in just three days, they had mined a total of a hundred pieces of black stone. This kind of efficiency was undoubtedly extremely high. According to Luan Bai Feng, the mining slaves under her were extremely lucky to be able to mine five or six pieces of black stone a day, usually only two or three.

Of the hundred black stones, less than thirty percent of them were useful. Most of them were empty, so Yang Kai casually tossed them aside.

In the end, Yang Kai obtained twenty-seven different grades of materials.
