Yang Kai nodded. He didn’t need to exchange for cultivation resources. Before coming to the Black Black Ink Battlefield, he had already made some preparations. The cultivation resources accumulated in his Small Universe were enough for him to cultivate to the Eighth Order.

However, the quality of some of the Spirit Pills in War Preparation Palace was quite good. Some of them were used for healing injuries and restoring one’s cultivation.

Yang Kai spent a small amount of Battle Merits to exchange for some so he could test its effects.

Feng Ying also quickly finished exchanging.

In Blue Sky Pass, every cultivator had their own residence. The higher one’s status was, the better their living conditions would be, and the larger the space they occupied. Since Yang Kai had been promoted to Team Leader, logically speaking, he should be given a small courtyard.

However, it was unknown if the higher-ups had forgotten about it or if it was intentional, but although Yang Kai had received the letter of appointment, he had not obtained his own residence.

Fortunately, Feng Ying’s residence was spacious, so it didn’t really matter if they lived together.

As soon as Feng Ying returned to her residence, Yang Kai immediately went into seclusion. Before that, he took out most of the Mysterious Yin Bamboo from his Small Universe and handed it over to Feng Ying for her to hand over.

Having just broken through to the Seventh Order, Yang Kai really needed some time to stabilize his cultivation and strength.

For the next few months, Yang Kai went into seclusion, refining various grades of cultivation resources every day to improve his own foundation.

Most cultivators used Open Heaven Pills to cultivate, and even if they're refining resources, their grade wouldn’t be too high. This was because they needed to collect a full set of Yin Yang + Five Elements before they could safely refine them. If one of the seven types of resources were missing, it was highly likely that it would cause imbalance in the Small Universe and cause hidden dangers.

Five Elements resources were easy to find, but high-grade Yin Yang attribute resources were not so easy to find.

Yang Kai didn’t need to worry about this, as he had obtained a massive amount of Yellow Crystals and Blue Crystals in the Chaotic Dead Territory. Although these two resources were essential to purifying and dispersing the Black Ink Force, it didn’t matter if he used them during his cultivation.

As such, Yang Kai’s cultivation speed was naturally not something an ordinary person could compare to.

On top of that, he also had many living creatures in his body, especially the countless Small Stone Race members in his Small Universe. The reproduction of these many living creatures also constantly increased his Small Universe’s foundation.

On top of that, because he cultivated the Time Laws and because his Third Disciple Xu Yi cultivated the Great Desolate Scripture, the flow of time in his body was more than four times faster than the outside world.

One year in the outside world was equivalent to four years in the Small Universe. With such a long period of time, it was enough to save Yang Kai a lot of cultivation time.

It could be imagined that in the future, the time it would take for him to break through from the Seventh Order to the Eighth Order would be much shorter than normal.

Now that he was promoted from the Sixth Order to Seventh Order, his Small Universe’s physique had greatly increased, so the amount of resources he could store was naturally greater. According to Yang Kai’s estimations, the foundation of a Seventh Order Open Heaaven was at least ten times that of a peak Sixth Order. This was just a breakthrough, and as time passed, his foundation would become stronger.

At this point, Yang Kai deeply understood the huge gap between a Sixth Order and a Seventh Order. He secretly rejoiced that the Seventh Order Open Heaven he had encountered was not a powerful existence. If it was someone like Feng Ying, Yang Kai would definitely not be an opponent.

On a certain day several months later, the sound of a restriction being activated came from the secret room. Yang Kai woke up from his retreat and waved his hand to open the restriction.

Feng Ying quickly walked in and glanced at him, “The battlefield has been cleaned up, Martial Uncle Zhong is waiting for you.”

Yang Kai stood up and said, “Let’s go.”

A short while later, the two of them left Blue Sky Pass. Looking around, the countless Black Ink Clouds that had been left behind on the battlefield had all been cleaned up, and even the many fragments of Small Universe had been cleaned up. The entire void was clean.

Among the four Regiment Commanders, only Zhong Liang was here, he should be waiting for Yang Kai.

Seeing the two of them, Zhong Liang waved his hand.

Yang Kai and Feng Ying stepped forward to greet him, while Zhong Liang nodded slightly and said, “I’ll leave the matters here to you. Find the Universe Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven that have not been inked, and maintain the opening of the gate. There will be people from the Pass to handle this matter.”

Yang Kai cupped his fists, “Disciple will do his best.”

Zhong Liang nodded, “It’s been hard on you. Also, after you finish your work here, there’s something else you need to take care of. When the time comes, you’ll be quite busy and won’t have much time to cultivate. Take care of yourself and don’t work too hard.”

Saying so, he reached out and patted Yang Kai’s shoulder.

Yang Kai asked suspiciously, “Is there something else?”

Zhong Liang clasped his hands behind his back and said, “You’ll know when the time comes. I still have some matters to attend to, so I’ll go back first. Feng Ying will cooperate with you. If you have any requests, just tell her.”

After giving his instructions, his figure flickered as he transformed into a streak of light and rushed into the Pass.

Yang Kai and Feng Ying watched until Zhong Liang’s figure disappeared from sight before Yang Kai turned to Feng Ying and asked, “Martial aunt, what is Senior Zhong saying?”

Feng Ying shook her head, “I’m not sure, but it should be related to the Black Ink Force.”

Although Yang Kai had now broken through to the Seventh Order, there were many Seventh Order masters in the entire Blue Sky Pass. What he needed to deal with was most likely related to Black Ink Force.

“As for the matter of promoting you to Team Leader, I asked about it before,” Feng Ying changed the subject.

“Oh? What did the Regiment Commander say?”

Feng Ying said, “Martial Uncle Zhong said that your identity is special, so you don’t need to belong to any regiment or garrison. You can be considered a Team Leader of a special operation team. Right now, there are only the two of us, in the future, you will be directly responsible under the four Regiment Commanders, not under the jurisdiction of any regiment or garrison. In addition, you can recruit all the soldiers in Blue Sky Pass, below the Eighth Order as a team member, with a maximum of fifty people!”

Hearing this, Yang Kai raised his brow, “Special Operation Team?”

This came as a surprise to him, but it could be seen just how much the four Regiment Commanders valued him. Whether it was Blue Sky Pass or the other Human Race Passes, the structure of the army was basically set, with ten to fifteen people in a team and a hundred in the guard.

On the other hand, Yang Kai’s special team had a maximum of fifty people, which was equivalent to half a guard's force.

Moreover, the Regiment Commander had given him the right to choose anyone under the Eighth Order as team member. In other words, if Yang Kai was willing, he could easily turn his team into fifty Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage masters.

This lineup was quite terrifying.

If such a team were to fight on the battlefield, it would likely play an unexpected role. With the help of the Palace Artifact, even if they encountered the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lord, they would be able to kill him.

Yang Kai asked in confusion, “Didn’t the Regiment Commander and the others not want me to go to the battlefield? What does this special team mean?” If they couldn’t fight on the battlefield, then there was no point in this team existing.

Feng Ying smiled and said, “They don’t want you to put yourself in danger, but after what happened just now, they probably know that you’re a person who can’t stay idle. If another battle really breaks out, how can you remain in the rear? It’s impossible for them to watch over you all the time, so instead of waiting for you to sneak onto the battlefield, it’s better to give you enough strength to protect yourself. Moreover… you’ve already proven your strength. Those who dare set foot on the Black Ink Battlefield is not a delicate flowers. Which one of them hasn’t experienced wind and rain?”

Yang Kai suddenly understood.

This was indeed the case. If another great battle were to break out, it would be impossible for him to hide in the rear.

Even under the attack of the Royal Lord, he was still able to survive, so what was there to fear about in the Black Ink Battlefield?

“You’ve been cultivating in seclusion all this time, so I didn’t have time to tell you about this. But now, it seems that the Regiment Commander and the others want you to do as you please. You’ll have to spend a lot of effort on the members of this team. If you have any suitable candidates, you can tell me. We’ll talk about them after we take them in.”

Yang Kai thought about it for a moment before asking, “Weren’t there a few Seventh Order masters who followed us back from the Black Ink Clan’s hinterlands?”

Feng Ying nodded, “Shen Ao, Ning Qizhi, and Qi Taichu, these three are indeed good.”

These three had been turned into Black Ink Disciple by the Ink Force and had been reduced to Black Ink Disciples. After being rescued by Yang Kai, they had taken the Profound Female Spirit Fruit to repair their damaged Small Universe and had fought their way back to this place. It could be said that they had lived and died together, so taking in these three people would save time.

“I’ll ask them for their opinion later. If they’re willing, we’ll report it to them, but before that, you must think of a name.”

“What name?” Yang Kai asked.

“Since it’s a Special Operation team, it’s only natural for them to have a name. Otherwise, they won’t be able to register.”

“What do you think?” Yang Kai asked.

Feng Ying smiled, “You’re the Team Leader, you decide.”

Yang Kai narrowed his eyes and stared into the depths of the void, which was filled with endless darkness. After a long time, he called out, “Dawn!”

Feng Ying muttered, “Dawn breaks, Dawn Comes, I hope I can see this day in my lifetime.”

“You will,” Yang Kai grinned at her, “It may be a bit late, but dawn will definitely arrive.”

Pausing for a moment, Yang Kai continued, “Martial Aunt, you need to worry about the team’s personnel. Excluding the three people I just mentioned, if you think anyone is suitable, you can take them in. However, since we’re a Special Operation team, we should focus on quality rather than quantity.”

“I understand,” Feng Ying nodded, “Don’t worry, I’ll keep a close eye on the personnel.”

With this matter settled, Yang Kai also began to search for Universe Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven.

This was an extremely long process that took Yang Kai half a year to complete.

With Blue Sky Pass as the center, all of the Universe Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven hidden in the void within a five hundred thousand kilometer radius were found and opened.

However, many of the Univers Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven had already been turned into ink and could not be used, so Yang Kai could only close them.

In the end, the number of Universe Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven they could use was over a thousand!

This number made Yang Kai feel heavy.

One had to know that the ones who had left behind these Universe Paradise and Universe Cave Heaven were all High Rank Open Heaven. These thousand location corresponded to the deaths of a thousand High Rank Open Heaven.
