Putting aside opportunities like entering the Small Source World to gain experience, Yang Kai is a Sixth Order cultivator, so if he focused on cultivating, refining a Sixth Order Resources would naturally be the fastest and most efficient. However, Sixth Grade Yin-Yang Elements resources were difficult to find, so he could only settle for the next best option and refine a Fifth Grade.
Yang Kai was like this, and the High Rank Open Heaven masters from the various Cave Heaven Paradise were basically all like this. Very few people would squander a Sixth Grade resource.
Twenty sets of Fifth Grade resources and thirty million Open Heaven Pills were enough to last Yang Kai half a year.
With Xia Linlang’s orders, Qin Fen naturally didn’t dare to act disrespectfully. For the next few days, he continued to help Yang Kai rebuild the bamboo house. Originally, he had planned to simply build a bamboo house for Yang Kai, but what made him extremely angry was that Yang Kai was like a supervisor, constantly ordering him around.
Qin Fen wished he could stab this guy to death!
Several days later, the bamboo house was finally completed and Qin Fen left, not even bothering to look at Yang Kai for fear he would lose his temper.
The following days were uneventful.
On the small island in the middle of the lake, with no one disturbing him, Yang Kai focused on his secluded cultivation.
After breaking through to the Open Heaven Stage, Yang Kai rarely had the opportunity to calm his mind and focus on his cultivation. Back when he was outside Shadowless Cave Heaven, he had no choice but to break through to the Fifth Order. After entering Shadowless Cave Heaven and swallowing the World Fruit, he was able to break through to the Sixth Order. After that, he had been busy with various things and had little time to spare.
Although he had been brought here by Xia Linlang this time because he had no other choice, it was still an opportunity.
He take advantage of this opportunity to consolidate his cultivation, after reaching the Open Heaven Stage, a cultivator would need to carefully manage their small universe. This kind of management was not something that could be accomplished overnight, but rather required years of accumulation.
What was even rarer was that someone had taken the initiative to provide him with cultivation resources. Although Yang Kai’s family now has a big business and didn’t care about such things, who wouldn’t want to accept such a free gift?
Half a year later, the supplies given by Qin Fen were completely exhausted.
Yang Kai didn’t ask for it from Xia Linlang, because at a normal speed, the supplies Xia Linlang sent were enough to last him two or three years.
Fortunately, he had stored a lot of resources in his Small Universe, so it did not affect his cultivation.
Cultivating like this was extremely boring, but it was unavoidable for every open heaven stage cultivator. As his cultivation progressed, Yang Kai gradually calmed down and gradually discovered some of his shortcomings.
From the fifth order, he had reached the sixth order because he had swallowed a Mid Rank World Fruit. After the Sixth Order, because of various fortuitous encounters, his cultivation had rapidly risen. In a short period of time, it was natural for his strength to rise rapidly, but in the long run, there were some hidden dangers.
These hidden dangers might not erupt all of a sudden, but as one’s cultivation increased, it would definitely slowly affect one’s foundation. Even a thousand kilometes dam could be destroyed by an ant’s nest.
This time’s focused cultivation gave him an opportunity to make up for it.
On the other hand, in this Universe Cave Heaven, the density of the Spear Dao was extremely high, and from the previous encounter with Qin Fen, he could tell that this person also used a spear, and his attainments in the Spear Dao were even higher than Yang Kai’s. However, because the difference in strength between the two of them was not small, Qin Fen was only able to fire a single spear attack before being forced back.
If they had the same foundation and were both using spears, even if Yang Kai used his Great Unrestrained Technique, he might not be able to win.
In addition to cultivating, Yang Kai naturally spared no effort in comprehending the mysteries of the Spear Dao contained in the Universe Cave Heaven.
In the blink of an eye, three years passed and Yang Kai sat in the bamboo house, shut himself inside.
Every three years, someone would take the initiative to deliver some cultivation resources to him, but it wasn’t the same Qin Fen from before. It was likely that he had suffered a loss under Yang Kai’s command and was too embarrassed to come here again. Now, the one who delivered these resources to him was a Fifth Order open heaven stage, they didn’t communicate with each other. Every time they came to the small island in the middle of the lake, they would hand over a Space Ring to Yang Kai before quickly leaving.
For ten years, Yang Kai had not seen Xia Linlang, so he didn’t know what she was doing.
Ten years wasn’t a long time, but it wasn’t short either. It wasn’t enough for Yang Kai’s Small Universe's foundation to increase by too much, but it was enough for him to reach a higher level in the Dao of Spear.
Originally, Yang Kai’s attainments in the Dao of Spear were at most at the Third Stage, but after ten years of secluded meditation, he had reached the Fifth Stage.
Yang Kai’s comprehension of the Dao of Space had reached the peak of the Eighth Stage, and his Dao of Time was almost at the pinnacle of the Sixth Stage. Now, his understanding of the Spear Dao had reached a certain level.
The Alchemy Dao had been abandoned for too long, and if there were no accidents, Yang Kai was not prepared to waste his energy on it.
One day, Yang Kai, who was cultivating in seclusion, suddenly opened his eyes and looked up into the sky. He could feel Xia Linlang’s aura emerge from a certain direction, transforming into a long streak of light and leaving this Universe Cave Heaven, disappearing without a trace.
Yang Kai was stunned for a moment before grinning, “After waiting for so long, this day has finally arrived!”
Without any hesitation, he stood up and flashed out of the bamboo house, glancing into the distance before disappearing.
In the place where Xia Linlang’s aura appeared, there was a Divine Palace which was her foundation, the Gem Palace!
In front of the majestic palace, Yang Kai’s figure appeared. Looking up, he muttered to himself, “As expected!”
The Gem Palace in front of him was obviously a palace-like artifact similar to Heavenly Sword Palace!
In fact, Heavenly Sword Palace was not the first palace artifact Yang Kai had seen. The Flowing Time Temple was the same, so is the Blood Monster Divine Palace he had entered in Blood Monster Cave Heaven!
However, the Flowing Time Temple was still an artifact of the Star Boundary. Although it was an artifact left behind by the Flowing Time Great Emperor, its grade was still far inferior. In battles below the Open Heaven Stage, the Flowing Time Divine Palace is impeccable, but in battles between Open Heaven Stage masters, the Flowing Time Divine Palace had little significance.
Strictly speaking, the Blood Monster Divine Palace was the first palace artifact Yang Kai had ever seen.
Unfortunately, with the collapse of the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, the Blood Monster Divine Palace also collapsed.
The Gem Palace in front of him was undoubtedly a palace artifact! Just like the Blood Monster Divine Palace’s status in Blood Monster Cave Heaven, the Gem Palace was also the core of the Universe Cave Heaven, like the eye of a great array, extremely important.
Those who obtained the Gem Palace would have a chance to control this Universe Cave Heaven.
Now, this Gem Palace had undoubtedly been branded with Xia Linlang’s aura and was now under her control.
Yang Kai had been cultivating here for ten years. Firstly, he really needed to calm his heart and focus on his cultivation, and secondly, he really couldn’t defeat Xia Linlang in the Universe Cave Heaven, so he didn’t fall out with her.
However, if there was an opportunity, he would naturally turn the tables on her. He couldn’t really entrust his life to her mercy.
As soon as Yang Kai appeared, a figure flashed out from the Gem Palace. It was none other than Qin Fen, who had suffered at Yang Kai’s hands before, glaring at him and shouting, “What are you doing here?”
Before the Palace Master left, she had told him to keep an eye on Yang Kai, but who would have thought that as soon as the Palace Master left, this fellow would suddenly show up. He really had the ambition of a wolf.
Yang Kai withdrew his gaze and looked towards Qin Fen, smiling lightly, “Those who block me will die!”
Qin Fen’s eyes were cold as he remained unmoved, “Try me!”
Sure enough, he really tried, Yang Kai’s figure transformed into a streak of light and shot towards Qin Fen. Seemingly recalling the humiliation he suffered ten years ago, Qin Fen couldn’t help taking a few steps back. However, before Yang Kai could get close to him, a transparent curtain of light appeared outside the Gem Palace. When Yang Kai crashed into the curtain of light, the Gem Palace shook violently and the curtain of light caved in but never broke.
Yang Kai withdrew a dozen meter and stood calmly.
Qin Fen sneered, “If Palace Master knew you wouldn’t know your place after she left, how could she not be on guard? If you know what’s good for you, you should obediently retreat, otherwise when Palace Master returns, no one will be able to save you.”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and grasped the Azure Dragon Spear tightly, lightly saying, “If Xia Linlang were to personally manage this Gem Palace, I naturally wouldn’t dare act rashly, but if it was an outsider like you, how much of its power could you display?”
Qin Fen snorted, “It’s more than enough to deal with you!”
Yang Kai smiled slightly, “Xia Linlang treated me like an ordinary Sixth Order master, but she was wrong. How many times do you think this protective barrier can withstand my spear?”
As soon as he finished speaking, Yang Kai pushed his World Force into his spear and shot forward.
Just as Qin Fen was about to ridicule him, when the long spear smashed into the light curtain, the light curtain suddenly flashed and even he, who had been temporarily granted some authority by Xia Linlang, was shocked.
Qin Fen’s face went pale as he quickly took out a piece of jade, his hands twisting as he activated the power of the jade to control the grand array.
However, just as Yang Kai had said, this Gem Palace belonged to Xia Linlang. Although she had given Qin Fen some authority to control the grand array before she left, he was unable to display its full power.
The spear’s momentum was like a torrential downpour, bombarding the Great Array’s light curtain.
In the past, although Yang Kai’s spear was extraordinary, it was absolutely impossible for him to reach his current level. After ten years of bitter cultivation, the Small Unvierse's foundation had only improved slightly, but Yang Kai had made great gains in the Dao of Spear.
Under the activation of this spear, all of the spear dao marks in the Universe Cave Heaven seemed to be activated, making Yang Kai even stronger.
Qin Fen’s body trembled again, and although his hands were constantly changing hand seals, he was still unable to stop the light curtain from gradually dimming. Under the influence of the Gem Palace’s vibrations, even his Small Universe began to tremble.
After being hit by Yang Kai’s hundred spear strikes, the protective barrier outside the Gem Palace suddenly shattered like a broken mirror. Qin Fen fell to the ground, blood flowing from his mouth and nose.
Yang Kai raised his spear and walked up the stairs as if there was no one there!
Seeing this, Qin Fen grit his teeth and roared, summoning his Spear and stabbing towards Yang Kai without any fear of death.
With a slight flash of the Azure Dragon Spear, the two spears crossed each other, causing a bloody light to splash out as Qin Fen’s shoulder were pierced through, and his entire body was picked by Yang Kai's spear.
The azure and purple spear in his hand was less than an inch away from Yang Kai’s chest. The spear’s light contained a powerful World Force, but this one inch was the difference between life and death.
