“What’s your name? Where are you from?” Yang Kai asked.
The woman glared at him, “You think I’ll tell you?”
“Such bad temper,” Yang Kai chuckled and called out, “Li Zhengqing!”
“This subordinate is here!” Li Zhengqing quickly stepped forward.
“Take her down and whip her a hundred times before I interrogate her.”
Li Zhengqing was stunned for a moment before quickly replying, “Yes!” He strode towards the woman.
The woman, on the other hand, wore a look of horror. A hundred whips wasn’t a big deal, she is a Heaven Rank master after all, so she wouldn’t lose her life. However, if she were to be struck by a hundred whips, her clothes would definitely be ruined, and when the time came, she wouldn’t even have the face to show her face.
There was actually such a vicious man in this world!
“My name is Hua Rong, the 'Hua' of a flower, the 'Rong' of a face!” The woman quickly said. [MSN: Apparently Hua Rong also mean Beautiful Face/Flower Face.]
“So it’s Lady Hua!” Yang Kai nodded slightly, “Why have you come to my Void Spirit Sword Sect?”
Hua Rong blinked her big eyes, “If I were to say that this place has beautiful scenery and is suitable for cultivating one’s body and mind, I wouldn’t know if you believe me or not.”
Yang Kai raised his head and shouted, “Li Zhengqing!”
“Wait a moment, if you don’t believe me, I’ll make up another one!” Hua Rong hurriedly shouted.
Yang Kai couldn’t help waving his hand, “Take her away and whip her a hundred times!”
“Clear Void Sword!” Hua Rong cried out in panic, “I came for Clear Void Sword.”
“Oh?” Yang Kai raised his brow, picked up the sword hanging from his waist, and waved it in front of her, “You came for this?”
Hua Rong nodded, “Yes!”
Yang Kai stared straight into her eyes and felt that she wasn’t lying. She was probably really here for the Clear Void Sword. It seemed that his and Li Zhengqing’s previous guess was wrong.
Within the Void Spirit Sword Sect, the Black Jade Mine wasn’t the only thing that could interest the Heaven Rank masters, there was also the Clear Void Sword.
This was not surprising. Although the Clear Void Sword was only an imitation of a Divine Weapon, the Clear Void Sword that the Clear Void Sword Lord had spent a great deal of manpower and wealth to forge was naturally not an ordinary artifact. This is a Spirit Weapon and its value is immeasurable.
However, since this was a legacy left behind by Clear Void Sword Lord to his descendants, how could he not have some guarantee for it's safety!
There were three strands of Sword Qi sealed within it, and only by activating the Void Spirit Sword Art could it be activated. If someone who didn’t know about it were to use it rashly, not only would the Clear Void Sword Qi not harm the enemy, it would even kill the wielder.
It was unknown where this beautiful woman had obtained the news of the Clear Void Sword’s birth, but even if she had obtained the Clear Void Sword, it was impossible for her to use it unless she could first resolve the two Sword Qi sealed inside the sword.
“Is this the Clear Void Sword?” On the other side, even Gao Ming, who had remained calm all this time, couldn’t help being slightly moved as he stared at the sword in Yang Kai’s hand.
As a Heaven Rank master, how could he not have heard of the Clear Void Sword? It was one of the Ten Divine Weapons.
Yang Kai shook his head, “Of course it’s not the real Clear Void Sword. It was forged by my Void Spirit Sword Sect's Ancestor based on the Devine Weapon. At best, it’s just a Spirit Weapon.”
“Spirit Weapon…” Gao Ming took a deep breath. Even if this so-called Clear Void Sword was only a Spirit Weapon, it was not something ordinary people had the qualifications to possess. A man’s wealth was his own ruin. It was foreseeable that if this news were to spread, Void Spirit Sword Sect would not be able to rest in peace.
Not to mention a Heaven Rank master, even many Spirit Rank masters would rush over to fight for it.
“You’re quite well-informed,” Yang Kai smiled at the beautiful woman.
Hua Rong was still lying on the ground like a maggot, but she had stopped moving, mainly because her strength had been sealed, so there was no point in moving. She just tilted her head and looked at Yang Kai, “Your Void Spirit Sword Sect can’t keep this thing, why don’t you give it to me? This Young Lady will help you resolve your future troubles and save you some trouble.”
“If I give it to you, can you keep it?” Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing.
Hua Rong shrugged, “That’s my business.”
Gao Ming coldly snorted, “Although a Spirit Weapon is valuable, if Pill Master Yang can’t protect it, no one in this world can.”
Hua Rong was slightly stunned, “Such big words! A mere Void Spirit Sword Sect…”
Gao Ming interrupted her, “The Void Spirit Sword Sect naturally can’t protect a Spirit Weapon, but what about the Profound Pill Sect?”
“Profound Pill Sect…” Hua Rong's expression changed as she stared at Yang Kai in confusion, “You’re from Profound Pill Sect?”
Gao Ming said, “Pill Mastr Yang is the 34th generation disciple of Profound Pill Sect, and he is also a Heaven Pill Master!”
“What?” This time, Hua Rong was truly shocked. She immediately sat up and looked up at Yang Kai who was standing in front of her, her eyes wide as she asked, “He… is a Heaven Pill Master?”
“Are you surprised?” Yang Kai smiled at her.
The beautiful woman examined him from head to toe and clicked her tongue, “You really can’t judge a book by its cover. If it weren’t for the fact that these words came from a Peak Heaven Rank master, this Young Lady wouldn’t have believed them. Speaking of which, who are you?” As she spoke, she turned to look at Gao Ming.
This time, she had fallen into Gao Ming’s hands, and her luck was extremely bad. Originally, with her cultivation, this Void Spirit Sword Sect would have been completely defenseless against her, but who would have thought that a peak Heaven Rank master would suddenly appear.
Moreover, she was extremely curious. When Gao Ming came up the mountain, she had secretly spied on him, but in the end, she had been caught by him.
Gao Ming proudly declared, “I am the Blood Servant of Heaven Pill Master Gao Xinpeng, Gao Ming!”
“Profound Pill Sect’s Blood Servant!” The beautiful young woman’s eyes narrowed as she sighed, “No wonder, this Young Lady has admitted defeat, this loss is not unjust.”
Her originally high fighting spirit instantly became dispirited as she sat on the ground and turned her face away, “If you want to kill me, do as you please. This Young Lady was blind to offend a Heaven Pill Master this time and deserves to die young!”
She had an extremely carefree look on her face, and if it weren’t for her restless eyes when she said this, Yang Kai would have admired her courage.
“You trespassed into my Void Spirit Sword Sect and injured this Sect Master’s subordinates, I can’t just let this matter rest. However, since you don’t have any intention to kill, your crime isn’t worthy of death. How about this, if you can take my attack, I’ll let you go,” Yang Kai looked down at Hua Rong.
Hua Rong was stunned, “Are you serious?”
“Do I look like I’m joking?” Yang Kai asked indifferently.
Hua Rong was stunned for a moment before nodding lightly, “You’re a good person! This Young Lady was wrong this time, I shouldn’t have offended the Void Spirit Sword Sect.”
Yang Kai turned to look at Gao Ming, “I’ll have to trouble you to remove her seal!”
Gao Ming hesitated for a moment, but still took two steps forward, raising his hand and sending out a few Qi waves towards Hua Rong, who immediately stood up and stretched her muscles.
Gao Ming said, “Pill Master Yang, please be careful. Although this woman’s cultivation isn’t as high as mine, her ability is not small. It took me a lot of effort to capture her just now.”
“En!” Yang Kai nodded lightly and looked at her, “Are you ready?”
“Prepare…” Before Hua Rong could finish her words, her vision suddenly blurred and by the time she realized what was happening, Yang Kai had already rushed three feet in front of her. From the corner of her eyes, she felt something smash down on her head, causing her to hurriedly raise her arms to defend herself.
“You…” Before she could say the word ‘sneak attack’, he heard a loud bang and immediately felt dizzy, staggering a few times before falling to the ground.
Yang Kai held up his Clear Void Sword and looked down at the motionless Hua Rong lying on the ground, frowning, “I seem to have used too much strength.”
The sword had not been unsheathed and had only hit her head, so although she had been knocked unconscious, her injuries should not have been serious.
Gao Ming was somewhat dumbfounded. After removing the restrictions on Hua Rong, he secretly circulated his spiritual force, preparing to attack at any moment to prevent any accidents from happening, but who would have thought such a scene would occur?
There was only one thought in his mind. This Pill Master Yang… was really despicable! To think that he would actually use a sneak attack on such a beautiful woman, he was simply not a gentleman.
However, this was just a thought in his mind and he didn’t dare say it out loud.
“Yingying, throw her off the mountain,” Yang Kai turned around and ordered his dumbfounded Little Junior Sister.
“Oh…” Wan Yingying responded before quickly picking up Hua Rong and walking out.
But a moment later, Wan Yingying returned with a speechless expression.
Li Zhengqing was surprised, “You threw her off the mountain so quickly?”
Wan Yingying replied, “No, that young lady didn’t seem to have fainted in the first place. I didn’t walk far before she woke up and ran down the mountain.”
Li Zhengqing reacted, “Smart woman!”
She was obviously pretending to be unconscious just now, otherwise she wouldn’t have been able to wake up so quickly. Turning to Yang Kai, he asked worriedly, “Sir, is it alright to just let her go?”
Yang Kai waved his hand, “Don’t worry about it, that woman doesn’t have any malicious intent, she’s probably just interested in the Clear Void Sword. If it weren’t for that, you and Zhuang Juhe would have died long ago. Since she doesn’t have any intention to kill, a small punishment is enough.”
“Sir is wise!” Li Zhengqing bowed.
Yang Kai recalled the scene where he had smashed his sword to her just now and faintly gained a clear grasp of his current strength. Turning to Gao Ming, he said, “I’ve made Brother Gao laugh.”
Gao Ming quickly said, “I don’t deserve such a title from Pill Master Yang. Pill Master Yang can just call me Guard Gao.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly, “Guard Gao come to my Void Spirit Sword Sect this time, is there any orders from Senior Brother Gao?”
Gao Ming cupped his fists and said, “Sir Gao asked me to bring Pill Master Yang to the Profound Pill Sect. Sir said that since Pill Master Yang is also a member of the Profound Pill Sect, it is only right for him to acknowledge his roots and ancestors. Also, the Elders of Profound Pill Sect seem to have some questions to ask.”
“So it’s like that!” Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat. Although he had already guessed that there would be trouble with the Profound Pill Sect's matters, he hadn’t expected them to arrive so quickly.
Previously, in Heavenly Martial City, he had casually mentioned a 'Master', but Gao Xinpeng had mistaken him for an expert from the Profound Pill Sect and somehow managed to connect him to the Profound Pill Sect.
Truth be told, Yang Kai absolutely didn’t want to go to the Profound Pill Sect. Previously, he had been able to fool Gao Xinpeng, but if he were to enter the Profound Pill Sect now, what if he was exposed? As one of the Top Ten Sects, Yang Kai believed that there were many Spirit Rank masters inside, so it was definitely not something he could contend with.
Once he was exposed, he would definitely die!
