When Yang Kai pointed out the current situation, Mo Na Ye knew that he had fallen into Yang Kai’s trap again. He had deliberately left behind a sealed Domain Gate to alert the Black Ink Clan and then withdraw the Pseudo-Royal Lords who had been fighting outside, causing Mo Na Ye to feel deeply helpless and angry.
Yang Kai stood outside the Domain Gate and spread out his arms, “Right now, the situation is in my hands. The Pseudo-Royal Lords of your Black Ink Clan are evacuating from the various battlefields. I can seal the Domain Gate at any time and kill them. Even if you can forcefully break through the Domain Gate’s seal, it will still take some time. What’s more, I can seal more than one Domain Gate!”
If he went to kill the Pseudo-Royal Lords who were rushing back now, all the Domain Gates he passed would be sealed off, and even if Mo Na Ye wanted to pursue him, he would be helpless.
With his current attainments in the Space Great Dao and his own strength, sealing the Domain Gate was a simple matter, but if the Black Ink Clan wanted to forcefully break through it, it would require a great deal of effort.
The amount of time and energy they had spent on each other was completely different, and the time difference Yang Kai had used to create was enough to cause the Black Ink Clan to lose a large number of Pseudo-Royal Lord.
“What do you want?” Mo Na Ye asked.
Yang Kai smiled lightly, “This is what it means to do business.” Dealing with smart people like Mo Na Ye was sometimes very easy, because there was no need for him to explain too much, he could understand everything and save himself the trouble of arguing. If it was a hot-tempered and reckless person in charge, they might have already started fighting.
This was not something Yang Kai wanted to see.
“As long as your Black Ink Clan’s new Royal Lord doesn’t appear, the Pseudo-Royal Lord is the most powerful force, and any one of them is indispensable. Moreover, right now, you don’t have any more Innate Territory Lords, so if one of the Pseudo-Royal Lords dies, there will be one less,” Yang Kai continued, “How about this, I won’t force you into a dead end. One Pseudo-Royal Lord, one million fifth grade resources, you can count how many Pseudo-Royal Lords there are outside and then give me the corresponding amount of resources.”
“Are you crazy?” Mo Na Ye stared at him in shock, shocked at his unreasonable demand.
Even if it was a fifth grade resource, a million pieces was still too much, and this was the price of a Pseudo-Royal Lord. How many Pseudo-Royal Lords were there fighting outside? There were at least two hundred in the twelve battlefields.
Wasn’t this equivalent to nearly twenty million fifth grade resources?
Although he knew that Yang Kai’s appetite must be big, Mo Na Ye had never expected his appetite to be so big. This was simply unacceptable.
Yang Kai said lightly, “The matter of supplies is nothing to the Black Ink Clan, but the Pseudo-Royal Lord is different. Think about it carefully.”
Mo Na Ye grit his teeth and said, “Too much!” Having said that, Mo Na Ye was more than willing to exchange resources for the safety of the Pseudo-Royal Lords, but he couldn’t accept Yang Kai’s offer. It had to be known that the resources he had taken from the Black Ink Clan were the capital for the Human Race’s growth. The more the Black Ink Clan gave, the stronger the Human Race would become.
At this point, Mo Na Ye suddenly realized that this might be Yang Kai’s true goal when coming to the No-Return Pass!
The Human Race was currently lacking in resources, this was something he was well aware of. The Black Ink Clan had the entire Ink Battlefield as their backer, so what could the Human Race have? What they had was the accumulation of the great Sects over the years, but no matter how much they had accumulated, there would always be a day when they would have nothing left.
At that time, if the Human Race didn’t have any resources to use, all cultivators’ cultivation would slow down, and even the birth of Open Heaven Stage cultivators would be cut off.
Therefore, no matter what, the Human Race had to resolve the issue of supplies, so Yang Kai’s unreasonable demand was understandable.
As for the deal he had made with the Black Ink Clan before, it was just a gradual process, a series of pressure…
Now that he thought about it, the previous transaction had been completely useless to the Black Ink Clan, and Yang Kai had taken away a mountain pass for nothing.
“This is my only condition, I won’t accept any bargaining. You have an incense stick’s worth of time to discuss, if you don’t agree, then there’s no need to discuss. I’ll immediately set out to kill your Pseudo-Royal Lord. I want to see how many of them can return alive. Oh, the location will be the Domain Gate that connects the Shattered Heaven to the 3000 Worlds. It will be a good battlefield!” Yang Kai said firmly.
Mo Na Ye’s eyes nearly popped out of their sockets, and the group of Pseudo-Royal Lords also became enraged, all of them turning their eyes towards Mo Na Ye, as if they were ready to kill Yang Kai at his command.
Mo Na Ye’s expression changed several times, and it was obvious that he was forcefully suppressing the killing intent in his heart. However, in the end, he didn’t give any orders and could only swallow his anger.
This was because he knew that even if he really gave the order, he wouldn’t be able to do anything to Yang Kai. The Domain Gate was right behind him, and if the Black Ink Clan make any abnormal movements, he could instantly escape into it.
To be honest, Mo Na Ye didn’t reject the idea of exchanging resources for the safety of the Pseudo-Royal Lords. What annoyed him was that Yang Kai’s price was too outrageous, and he was not allowed to bargain.
He could bargain in the past!
However, it was undeniable that Yang Kai’s plan had hit the Black Ink Clan’s weak spot. If he really acted as he had just said, there would definitely be many Pseudo-Royal Lords who would suffer.
After the Pseudo-Royal Lords retreated from the frontline battlefield, they would have to pass through the Domain Gate from the Shattered Heaven. This place could be said to be a necessary route, so Yang Kai only needed to wait there and reap some benefits.
On the other hand, if the Black Ink Clan wanted to rescue them, they would need to pass through the Spatial Territory and cross the entire Shattered Heaven. Not to mention the time it would take to travel would be far longer than Yang Kai, just breaking through the seals of the several Domain Gates would take a long time.
By the time they arrived, it would be too late.
On top of that, the No-Return Pass also need some powerhouse to guard it, so it was impossible for them to go all out.
A massive number of Black Ink Clan was actually being controlled by a single person! Every Black Ink Clan powerhouse felt humiliated.
Glaring hatefully at Yang Kai, Mo Na Ye’s Divine Sense surged as he began discussing with Mo Yu.
Yang Kai stood calmly outside the Domain Gate and waited. He didn’t rush them, giving them an incense stick’s worth of time. Moreover, he was certain that the Black Ink Clan would agree to his request. Although he wanted a lot, it wasn’t something the Black Ink Clan couldn’t afford. The Black Ink Clan just didn’t want to use so many resources to nourish their enemies.
But compared to the lives of the Pseudo-Royal Lords, these were only secondary.
However, there was always a chance of things going differently. If the Black Ink Clan was too stubborn this time and refused to allow him to extort them, he would have no choice but to kill the Pseudo-Royal Lords.
Now that the Space-Time River was used to seal the Pure Yang Pass, it couldn’t be used easily. Without the help of the Space-Time River, it wouldn’t be easy to kill these Pseudo-Royal Lords. What’s more, the Pseudo-Royal Lords who had retreated were all in large groups, not acting alone. Killing them would be difficult.
If he really did so, he would only be able to succeed a few times at most. As the number of Pseudo-Royal Lords who had retreated from various battlefields increased, he could only stop. After all, no matter how strong he was, there was still a limit.
Yang Kai shot a sideways glance at Mo Na Ye, who also happened to be looking in his direction. As their eyes met, Yang Kai grinned amiably.
Mo Na Ye turned his eyes away, with a disgusted look on his face.
The discussion continued. At first, it was just Mo Na Ye and Mo Yu’s Divine Senses, but later on, quite a number of Pseudo-Royal Lords had joined them. Just from the expressions of these Black Ink Clan masters, it was clear they had some disagreements.
Yang Kai couldn’t be bothered with them and was prepared to enter the Domain Gate at any time!
In less than the time it takes for an incense stick to burn, the discussion over at the Black Ink Clan’s side came to an end.
Yang Kai’s spirits rose as he placed his hands on his chest and calmly asked, “How is it?”
Mo Na Ye took a deep breath and put on an attitude of enduring humiliation, saying in a low voice, “We agree to your request!”
The corners of Yang Kai’s eyes couldn’t help twitching, “Can I raise the price now?”
In the end, he had still underestimated the Black Ink Clan’s wealth. He had originally thought that he would be able to ask for an exorbitant price, even thinking that if the Black Ink Clan really wanted to bargain, he might as well make way for them, but who would have thought that they would actually agree!
Thinking about it, the Black Ink Clan had occupied the 3000 Worlds and even the entire Ink Battlefield for thousands of years and had mined countless resources. Moreover, they didn’t lack manpower to extract resources.
Yang Kai felt an inexplicable pain in his heart, feeling like he had suffered a great loss.
“Yang Kai!” Mo Na Ye shouted angrily, “Don’t push your luck!”
Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “I’m just joking, please calm down!”
Mo Na Ye glared at him hatefully for a moment before calming down, “It will take some time to gather supplies!”
“Three days!” Yang Kai had thought of this point long ago, so how could he give the Black Ink Clan any chance to delay? “In three days, I want to see enough supplies. Also, I advise you not to play any tricks. I know exactly how many Pseudo-Royal Lords your Black Ink Clan has!”
“Three days is too short, you want a lot of things,” Mo Na Ye frowned.
Yang Kai sneered, “Your supplies are all gathered here, so you only need to count them. Three days is more than enough. Of course, if you want to stall for time, I don’t mind, but… if a Pseudo-Royal Lord comes, don’t blame me for not showing mercy!”
At this moment, he was blocking the Domain Gate’s entrance. Once the Pseudo-Royal Lords returned, they would definitely appear beside him. If Yang Kai were to attack at that moment, which Pseudo-Royal Lord would be able to stop him?
Mo Na Ye’s eyelids twitched as he shouted, “Fine, three days it is!”
“Good!” Yang Kai praised.
“In addition, there aren’t that many fifth grade materials, so we’ll replace them with other materials. Of course, the quantity is guaranteed,” Mo Na Ye added.
After all, with nearly twenty million pieces of fifth grade materials, even with the Black Ink Clan’s wealth, they wouldn’t be able to afford them, so it was reasonable for them to replace them with other quality materials.
Yang Kai naturally wouldn’t make things difficult for them on this matter. Hearing this, he nodded and said, “Sure, but the minimum requirement is fourth grade. Those below fourth grade shouldn’t be used to make up the numbers!”
