“It’s not that there is no savings, but compared with the gap of the sect… Palace Lord.” The elder Xu looked at Li Jiao timidly, with a look of embarrassment.
“Yes, Palace Lord, even if we old guys take out all the assets, it won’t last long.”
“How long can it last?” Li Jiao persuaded with all his heart, “You can survive this time. When the sect becomes more generous, you will definitely not be missing anything.”
Li Jiao has said so, and the elders are not embarrassed to continue to refuse to resign. After all, Li Jiao is telling the truth, everyone has been promoted to the Emperor Realm for so long, and there are some savings on hand. If these wealth can be taken out, It can indeed alleviate the sect crisis.
Everyone, look at each other. It was Elder Xu who was the first to speak: “The sect master is reasonable. If so, the old man will set an example. The old man contributed five million…”
When everyone heard it, their eyes lit up, and Li Jiao looked at him with scorching eyes.
Elder Xu chuckled: “middle-rank source crystal! This is almost all the belongings of the old man.”
Li Jiao’s face suddenly turned dark.
Five million middle-rank source crystals are only 50,000 high-rank source crystals, what can this number do? Moreover, an Emperor Realm elder who has been in charge of Pill Refining for hundreds of years, it is impossible for him to have only this wealth.
“That’s not right, Elder Xu.” A black-faced man jumped out and yelled: “I think the pot of Wanhua wine you use to entertain your guests a few days ago is 30,000 high-rank source crystals, that is the best quality wine from the Medicine Pill Valley. How could you possibly affor to buy that wine if you only have this much?”
After being pierced face-to-face, Elder Xu’s face flushed, and he defended: “Then…it was not bought by the old man. It was brought by my friend. He specially invited the old man to taste it together. When did I buy it? The old man’s income as the elder is so small every year, and they are only so-so for self-cultivation. How can there be so many source crystals to buy wanhua wine?
The black-faced man snorted coldly: “Elder Xu has no Source Crystal? Who will believe that, Elder Xu, you are in control of the entire Pill Hall of the Fire Dragon Palace. There are countless Source Crystals that go from the Palace Lord every year. Not to mention anything else, it is said that the year before last there were 6 million high-rank Source Crystal, more than 7 million in the year before that, and 8 million in the previous year. The sect’s annual income is only 50 million, and Pill Hall directly consume up to 20%.”
Elder Xu said: “The old man said, the Pill Hall is the top priority of Fire Dragon Palace. Which of the tens of thousands of disciples can practice without the pill? It is normal to consume too much.”
The black-faced man sneered: “If all the source crystals are really used to buy herbs, Elder Xu can guarantee that all the source crystals that go from the palace lord will be put into the operation of the Pill Hall?”
Elder Xu suddenly became a little embarrassed into anger, and shouted: “You…what do you mean?”
The black-faced man snorted: “You know what I mean by yourself. When the sect is wealthy, you can hold back privately and fill your own pockets. Now that the sect is in trouble, Elder Xu should behave.”
“Secretly buckle and fill the pockets!” Elder Xu suddenly jumped up like a cat with his tail stomped on. He was full of Emperor Yuan, and he wanted to fight the black-faced man immediately to show his innocence. He turned his head and slammed his head and said in grief and angrily: “Palace Lord, someone slander the old man, and asks the Palace Lord to be the master for me.”
Li Jiao stood there numbly, as if he hadn’t heard Elder Xu’s words.
Elder Xu turned his head and sneered at the black-faced man: “My Pill Hall financial income and expenditures are all accountable. The old man is not fighting with you with words. Is there any secret pocketing, the palace lord will know it? But your equipment hall, I don’t know if the bottom of the butt is clean!”
“The old thing dare to bite back!” The black-faced man was furious.
“How dare you call me old thing, b*stard!”
“What’s wrong with calling the fact, old things, old things, old things!”
The two immediately quarreled and couldn’t talk, the remaining elders were helping, and some wanted to calm down, and there was a mess in the hall. If Li Jiao were not here, I’m afraid they have already fought.
Li Jiao stared coldly below, wishing to sweep all these annoying guys out, so that his ears were completely clean. But after all, he is the Palace Lord, and the decision between thoughts is related to the survival of tens of thousands of disciples. Even if there is anger in his heart, he can only be forced to suppress it, and find a way to solve the current crisis first.
With a creak, at this moment, the door of the hall was pushed open, and a disciple walked in.
The noise stopped abruptly, and everyone looked at the disciple.
Obviously, this disciple didn’t expect anything wonderful to happen in the main hall before. When he saw it, he saw that the aloof elders were blushing at this moment, and the palace lord was standing at the top, with a sneer on his face, and suddenly frightened. Didn’t dare to take a breath in this atmosphere.
“What’s the matter?” Li Jiao asked impatiently.
“Returning to the Palace Lord, someone is asking to see you!” The disciple returned tremblingly.
“No!” Li Jiao is in a state of chaos, and he refused without even thinking about it.
The disciple was like receiving a pardon and wanted to withdraw quickly.
Li Jiao spoke again, “Who is asking for a meeting?”
The disciple thought for a while, and said, “That person calls himself Yang Kai!”
“What?” Li Jiao was shocked when he heard the words, and the group of elders underneath were also taken aback.
Then Elder Xu said, “Yang Kai? Isn’t it the palace lord of the High Heaven Palace?”
“If it’s him, that would be interesting!” The dark-faced man who had been arguing with Elder Xu just now had a dangerous gleam in his eyes. He raised his head and said: “Palace Lord, might as well let Yang Kai come in, we can discuss the debts of our Fire Dragon Palace with him.”
“It’s in time! It’s a coincidence that this person came, so let him in, palace lord, what do you think?”
Everyone turned their heads and looked, only to see Li Jiao’s face as black as the bottom of a pot, obviously he didn’t think everyone’s idea was a good idea.
Li Jiao sighed: “High Heaven Palace, you can’t provoke, that Yang Kai… can’t be provoked either.”
A group of elders were very dissatisfied, because they heard that the palace lord of the High Heaven Palace was only the 1st order Emperor Realm. The last time he was on the territory of others, his palace lord and Sect Master of Full Sky Sect suffered a big loss, this time he dared to take the initiative to come to their doors, they really don’t know what the palace lord is afraid of. As long as he enters this hall, and then closes the door, any huge debts will be settled at once.
“Tell that person, the Palace Lord has gone out to take a walk, not in the palace.” Li Jiao waved his hand.
The disciple agreed, but when he was about to turn around, there was a sneer from outside the door: “Brother Li has such a big shelf. This Palace Lord came to visit in person and you don’t want to see him?”
When the words fell, two more figures appeared in the hall.
Before these two people appeared, no one of the many emperor realm in the hall was aware of it, as if they were there all along. They were both young people, one with frivolous expressions, sword eyebrows and star eyes, mouth with a chuckle, and one with red hair like a fire, his look is cold, his eyes are arrogant, he is clearly standing on the ground, but he gives people the feeling of being in the clouds, as if he is not in the same world with everyone present.
The elders were shocked and all changed their colors.
Li Jiao shook his body even more, and almost turned around to flee, finally resisting the conflict in his heart, looking at Yang Kai with a speechless expression on his face.
Yang Kai looked up at the top with a smile, “Brother Li is going out for a walk?”
Li Jiao chuckled, “I have this plan, but it’s not a big deal. It’s just a matter of pleasure, but since Palace Lord Yang is here, Li can’t leave.”
Yang Kai touched his chin and said, “You still have the mind to go out and wander around. It seems that Palace Lord Li is doing pretty well these days.”
Li Jiao said with a bitter expression: “Palace Lord Yang, don’t make fun of me, Li life now… is not any better than death.”
A group of elders lowered their heads embarrassedly when they heard this.
Yang Kai laughed and said: “Brother Li is really interesting, Fire Dragon Palace has a big business, and Brother Li is even more powerful. How can life be worse than death?”
Li Jiao want to say that it’s all becaus of him, but he smiled with a smile on his face: “I wonder what is the business for Palace Lord Yang coming here today?”
Yang Kai didn’t answer, but just looked at him with a smile.
Li Jiao wiped the cold sweat on his forehead and said, “This…this…cold it be Palace Lord Yang came here to collect the money? How can you work on such trivial things? Just let the people below you do it, and my Fire Dragon Palace haven’t forgotten this year’s payment, but it takes some time to prepare. When the preparations are complete, it will be sent to the High Heaven Palace immediately without any delay. What’s more… it’s not the deadline yet!”
“When is the deadline, why don’t I know? I think today is the deadline.”
The cold sweat on Li Jiao’s forehead became even worse: “Palace Lord Yang really came to collect the money?”
He couldn’t believe it. Although Fire Dragon Palace did owe a large sum of Source Crystal to the High Heaven Palace, Yang Kai personally came to collect the money and entered without telling it. This was a bit too much.
“You must not be arrogant surname Yang!” The black-faced man in the crowd rushed out, poking at Yang Kai, “Although I don’t know what method you used to deceive the palace lord and cause my Fire Dragon Palace to be so constrained. Anyway, it is also considered palace lord, and a fellow of the Northern Territory. In the future, everyone will not raise the head when seeing each other. As long as you can establish a paper to nullified the debt here. I can let you go. Otherwise…huh!”
Many emperor realms looked towards Yang Kai unkindly.
After seeing Yang Kai with their own eyes and confirming that he is indeed only the 1st order Emperor Realm, everyone naturally has nothing to be afraid of. No matter how strong the High Heaven Palace’s background is, as long as Yang Kai can be restrained here, it is equivalent to taking control of the High Heaven Palace. The so-called debt is nothing but a joke.
Li Jiao burst into cold sweat, almost fainting.
Yang Kai glanced at the black-faced man, then at Li Jiao and said, “Is this your elder?”
“No!” Li Jiao vetoed.
