In order to prevent Yang Kai from killing his way back, Mo Na Ye personally escorted the four injured Territory Lords back. One of them was seriously injured, even if he managed to maintain his position with the other three, he would still be easily defeated. For safety’s sake, these four were no longer suitable to show their faces outside.
The four Territory Lords were naturally moved to tears by Mo Na Ye’s kindness.
Only after entering the No-Return Pass would the four Territory Lords feel a sense of security. Mo Na Ye went to seek an audience with the Royal Lord and explained his guess.
When he heard that Yang Kai was likely to see through the arrangements set up here, the Royal Lord's face became extremely gloomy. This time, he had sacrificed more than a dozen Innate Territory Lords and a Royal Lord-level Ink Nest to create this Pseudo-Royal Lord, Meng Que, in order to lure Yang Kai out and trap him.
However, if Yang Kai didn’t come, all of their plans would have been in vain, and the Pseudo-Royal Lord Meng Que would become nothing more than a decoration.
“Sir Royal Lord, the longer we delay the matter of resources, the more disadvantageous it will be for my Black Ink Clan! Right now, there are only a handful of supplies that can safely return to the No-Return Pass. The Territory Lords have been maintaining their battle formation for many years, so it will be extremely taxing on their minds. I’m afraid they won’t be able to persist any longer,” Mo Na Ye carefully reported.
The Royal Lord angrily said, “A mere Eighth Order human, is there really nothing we can do to him?”
Mo Na Ye was speechless. If there really was a way, the situation of the Black Ink Clan wouldn’t have been so awkward. Such a person couldn’t be dealt with by strength alone.
After a moment of silence, Mo Na Ye said, “Sir Royal Lord, please make your preparations. This time, my Black Ink Clan may really have to give up before we can settle things peacefully.”
The Royal Lord turned his head and glared at him, “Agree to his ridiculous request?”
Mo Na Ye shook his head and said, “Fifty percent is naturally impossible for us to agree. The materials were painstakingly mined by my Black Ink Clan, he didn’t do anything and only used all kinds of despicable methods to threaten us, wanting to take away fifty percent is simply wishful thinking. However, this person’s appetite is not small, if we give too little, I’m afraid he won’t agree…”
The Royal Lord waved his hand impatiently, “You decide this matter yourself, don’t bother me again!”
Now that he heard Yang Kai’s name, he felt a headache coming on. How could the Human Race have such a thing? He would rather fight against the Divine Dragon Fu Guang than hear Yang Kai’s name echo in his ears!
Mo Na Ye’s expression became awkward as he nodded and respectfully withdrew.
As a subordinate, not only was he unable to share the burden of his Sir Royal Lord, he even had such a humiliating thought to resolve this matter. This was simply his incompetence!
However, there was no other way to resolve this matter. Yang Kai had caused such a ruckus over the past ten years that not only had ninety percent of the Black Ink Clan’s resources been looted, but most of the Territory Lords in the No-Return Pass had also been restrained. Even Yang Kai himself was constantly on the move.
If this continued, it was highly likely that the Territory Lords would not be able to hold on any longer. If any of the Territory Lords were injured or killed, it would be a massive loss of resources.
With this thought in mind, Mo Na Ye took out the communication bead he had used to contact Yang Kai and was about to send a message to ask Yang Kai to discuss this matter with him when he suddenly had a thought and summoned his small Ink Nest.
After checking the information he received, Mo Na Ye sighed and quickly flew towards the depths of the void.
Another four Territory Lords had been ambushed by Yang Kai and were injured after losing their supplies!
When Mo Na Ye arrived, he discovered that the situation was far more serious than he had imagined.
The injuries of the four Territory Lords weren’t too serious. After all, they had always been vigilant. After Yang Kai’s sneak attack, they had immediately formed a Four Directions Array to protect themselves.
However, after a quick examination, Mo Na Ye was surprised to discover that two of the Territory Lords had suffered the same injuries, both of which were located two inches to the left of their chest.
This position wasn’t a fatal blow to the Black Ink Clan, but it caused Mo Na Ye to frown deeply. Was this intentional?
If it was unintentional, then so be it, but if it was intentional… it was worth considering.
Yang Kai was undoubtedly sending him a message. This time, he had the ability to kill one or two of these two Territory Lords, but he didn’t want to make things too awkward, so he held back.
This was his way of showing his sincerity…
Thinking up to this point, Mo Na Ye couldn’t help feeling amused. This guy had come to the Black Ink Clan’s side to demand an exorbitant price, robbing them of their supplies and even showing his sincerity.
What was he trying to do? Was he trying to make a profit out of amiability? That was the Black Ink Clan’s wealth!
“Sir Mo Na Ye,” A Territory Lord walked over and carefully handed over an item, “After Yang Kai left, we found this item. It should be something he left behind.”
Mo Na Ye turned around and recognized that it was the Human Race’s Universe Chart. What did Yang Kai leave this Universe Chart here for?
Mo Na Ye was puzzled and reached out to take it, immersing his Divine Sense into it for a moment before letting out a long sigh.
Yang Kai had deliberately left behind this Universe Chart not for any other reason, but for a different kind of threat.
Under his investigation, he found that many of the locations on the Universe Chart had been specially marked with his Divine Sense, making it easy for Mo Na Ye to observe them. On top of that, it printed the Ink Battlefield perfectly, it wasn’t difficult to discover that the locations indicated were all bases where the Black Ink Clan was currently mining resources.
There were more than a hundred such locations, which meant that Yang Kai had long since found out the location of the Black Ink Clan’s mining materials. If he really wanted to, he could go to those locations and wipe out the entire Black Ink Clan!
If he really did this, the Black Ink Clan’s resources would be greatly reduced. It had to be known that there were no masters in those places, so facing a Killing Star like Yang Kai, they simply had no way to resist.
How did this guy do it?
Mo Na Ye couldn’t understand. In the past ten years, he had been looting all over the place, yet he still had time to inquire about the locations of these mining sites. It should be known that the locations of these mining materials were quite far apart from each other, so it would take a lot of time to travel from one place to another.
Mo Na Ye could only sigh. Space Abilities were truly profound and unparalleled. In the eyes of others, a great distance was probably nothing to Yang Kai, which was why he was able to obtain so much information in just ten years.
The markings on this Universe Chart were the same as the wounds on the two Territory Lords. They were both a threat and a show of sincerity…
Mo Na Ye understood and his expression became gloomy.
So what if he had become a Pseudo-Royal Lord? In this confrontation with Yang Kai, he had suffered a crushing defeat, the Black Ink Clan had suffered a crushing defeat, and Yang Kai had single-handedly caused chaos in the Black Ink Clan’s rear. Even if their side had launched a fierce attack, it would have been futile. In the end, they had to compromise!
“Have all the Territory Lords return to the No-Return Pass,” Mo Na Ye waved his hand dispiritedly.
The four Territory Lords were stunned for a moment before one of them asked, “Sir, what about Yang Kai?”
Mo Na Ye said, “I’ll talk to him!”
The Territory Lords glanced at each other and understood what Mo Na Ye meant. Although they were happy that they didn’t have to live in fear every day, each Territory Lord felt a deep sense of humiliation.
After a while, the Territory Lords left.
Standing in the air, Mo Na Ye took out the communication bead and played with it in his hand as if he was thinking about something.
At this moment, he suddenly turned his head and saw a figure standing not far away, smiling at him and cupping his fists in greeting, “Sir Mo Na Ye!”
The corner of Mo Na Ye’s mouth twitched. This guy was truly daring! He had actually been hiding nearby and had even dared to appear in front of him.
Mo Na Ye couldn’t help having a sudden urge to kill him, but this thought quickly disappeared like a wave.
There was no other way, he couldn’t kill him! If he really attacked, it would only anger him.
“Sir Yang Kai has good skill!” Mo Na Ye returned the bow, his tone filled with ridicule and praise.
Yang Kai didn’t pay it any mind and simply smiled, “From Sir Mo Na Ye’s expression, it seems he has made a decision?”
Mo Na Ye’s eyes drooped slightly, “The Royal Lord has entrusted me with handling the matter of supplies.”
“Good,” Yang Kai raised his brow, “My previous proposal is still valid.”
Mo Na Ye immediately shook his head like a rattle-drum, “Sir Yang Kai…” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “You and I have known each other for many years. In the words of your Human Race, no discord, no concord. Although we are in a different side, I am extremely impressed by Sir Yang Kai, calling you Sir Yang Kai is quite distant. How about calling you Brother Yang?”
“Then how should I address you? Brother Mo? Does your Black Ink Clan have a surname?”
Mo Na Ye said seriously, “Only the Royal Lord has the qualifications to use Mo as his surname! For example, the current Royal Lord of my clan is Mo Yu. Under the Royal Lord, the name and surname are self-reliant, so Brother Yang can just call me by my name.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly as he heard some news.
All this time, the Human Race had not been able to figure out the name of this Black Ink Clan's Royal Lord, nor did they know how to address him. The Black Ink Clan now had a true Royal Lord, but the Royal Lord had always addressed himself as Royal Lord. He had never thought that he would actually hear it from Mo Na Ye today.
It was not very useful.
Mo Na Ye continued, “Brother Yang, fifty percent is impossible. All of the materials were mined by my Black Ink Clan and transported by my Black Ink Clan, yet Brother Yang want to take fifty percent without even exerting any effort. Isn’t your appetite a bit too big?”
Yang Kai grinned, the corners of his mouth almost reaching his ears, “There’s an old saying in the Human Race, a big mouth eats everything!”
Look at how big my mouth is!
Mo Na Ye rubbed his temples as if he was having a headache, “Brother Yang, I sincerely wish to discuss this matter with you today, please don’t joke around.”
Yang Kai curled his lips and also straightened his face before asking, “Since that’s the case, I want to know how much the Black Ink Clan can offer?”
Mo Na Ye raised a finger and made a beckoning gesture, “Half a percent!”
Yang Kai couldn’t help but laugh, “Mo Na Ye, you’re the perfect example of setting a price on the ground. If it was only half a percent, why would I need to negotiate with you? Wouldn’t it be better to rob your Black Ink Clan’s supplies and obtain ninety percent?”
