MARTIAL PEAK 4524


His days in Profound Pill Sect were extremely comfortable and leisurely. Every now and then, he would refine pills and earn a large amount of cultivation resources. Now, Yang Kai spent most of his time refining the Medicine King Cauldron.


One day, while Yang Kai was guiding Wan Yingying in Pill Refining, Yang Huai suddenly walked in and cupped his fists with a solemn expression.


Yang Kai said a few more words before looking up at Yang Huai, “What is it?”


Yang Huai replied, “Sir, the Asking Pill Pavilion sent word that a man named Li Zhengqing has come to find you and has something important to report!”


“Li Zhengqing?” Yang Kai raised his brow, “Did he say what it was?”


Yang Huai shook his head and said, “He didn’t say it explicitly, but it seems he was quite anxious.”


“Bring him here,” Yang Kai ordered.


“Yes!” Yang Huai replied before hurriedly walking out.


Wan Yingying asked worriedly, “Eldest Senior Brother, did something happen to the Sect?”


Li Zhengqing’s sudden appearance from the Void Spirit Sword Sect made her feel somewhat uneasy, wondering if something had happened to her Sect.


“I don’t think so,” Yang Kai shook his head. Although he had been staying in the Profound Pill Sect for the past few years, his connection with the Sect had never been cut off, basically maintaining a frequency of one letter per two months. The last time he had received a letter from the Sect was a month ago, so if there had been any changes, Su Changfa would have told him.


Moreover, he was now a famous Heaven Pill Master, and with him protecting the Void Spirit Sword Sect, not many people in the Divine Weapon World dared to target it.


“Don’t worry, there shouldn’t be anything wrong. Perhaps Master has something to tell us,” Yang Kai rubbed Wan Yingying’s head and comforted her.


Wan Yingying nodded and quietly stood to the side.


Although he comforted Wan Yingying like this, Yang Kai had a faint feeling that something had really happened to his Sect. Otherwise, there would have been no need for Li Zhengqing to come here.


Not long after, Li Zhengqing was brought up by Yang Huai. After not seeing him for a few years, not only had this old man not aged, but he had also become much younger. After all, he was only an Earth Rank cultivator back then, but now he was a Second Order Heaven Rank cultivator! However, because of the long journey, he had become quite travel-worn.


“This old master greets Sir!” Li Zhengqing bowed respectfully.


Yang Kai nodded, “Why have you come here?”


Li Zhengqing said seriously, “Reporting to Sir, the old Sect Master suddenly fell ill half a month ago and the two Elders asked this old master to invite Sir back to take a look.”


“What?” Wan Yingying jumped up and asked nervously, “Is Master sick?”


Yang Kai’s expression also became solemn, “How could this be?”


Li Zhengqing lowered his head and replied, “The two Elders said that the old Sect Master is old and weak, and the reason for his weak vitality seems to be related to the injuries he suffered when he was young.”


Wan Yingying quickly asked, “When you came, how was Master’s condition?”


Li Zhengqing said, “He’s unconscious and his condition isn’t very good, but for the time being, there’s no danger to his life. However, this old master spent half a month traveling here, so I don’t know how he is now.”


“Eldest Senior Brother…” Wan Yingying almost cried as she turned to look at Yang Kai.


“Don’t panic!” Yang Kai casually comforted her before muttering to himself, “Wait here for a moment, I’ll report to the Elder Pavilion and return to the Sect!”


He then turned to Yang Huai and ordered, “Call Hua Rong back!”


“Yes!” Yang Huai replied solemnly.


Yang Kai quickly walked out of the cave mansion and circulated his spiritual force before turning into a streak of light and flying towards the Elder Pavilion. He found the Elder on duty and explained the situation to him.


A moment later, he hurriedly flew back from the Elder Pavilion.


He had originally thought that this trip would be somewhat difficult. After all, he now had the important task of comprehending the Great Dao of the Medicine King Cauldron. To be frank, the Profound Pill Sect should be extremely anxious about him. Under normal circumstances, he would not be able to leave the Profound Pill Sect easily, at the very least he would have to obtain Baili Yunsang’s approval.


Unexpectedly, after the Third Elder, Yu Boyang, who was on duty at the Elder Pavilion, heard about this matter, he immediately agreed and ordered him to return early and take care on the road.


However, this was also a good thing. He didn’t know what the situation on Su Changfa’s side was like, so he didn’t have time to waste.


After coming to this Divine Weapon World, this world had bestowed upon him a new identity, one that contained a great deal of karma and emotions, so when he heard that Su Changfa was seriously ill, his nervousness and worry were not fake, but instead came from the bottom of his heart.


A few years ago, Yang Kai knew that Su Changfa’s potential had been exhausted, and he would likely be stuck at the Third Order Earth Rank for the rest of his life.


He was already old, and if he couldn’t break through in his cultivation, sooner or later he would die.


However, Yang Kai had not expected this day to come so quickly!


When he returned to the Cave Mansion, Hua Rong had already returned. She, who had never been a proper cultivator, tactfully chose not to play around this time and simply stood there quietly.


A moment later, a stream of light soared into the sky, Hua Rong and Yang Kai worked together to mobilize their spiritual power, wrapped in Yang Huai, Li Zhengqing and Wan Yingying, and flew to the sky.


In front of the Elder Pavilion, Third Elder Yu Boyang stood with his hands behind his back, his eyes narrowed slightly.


A sound came from the side and a person stood next to Yu Boyang, staring into the distance, “He left?”


Yu Boyang nodded, “Yes.”


“Then do it.”


Yu Boyang turned his head to look at Baili Yunsang and frowned, “Sect Master, is this really a good idea? No matter what kind of background this boy has, he hasn’t had any malicious intentions towards my Profound Pill Sect in the past few years. Not to mention, he can also hear the Great Dao Wonderful Sound of the Medicine King Cauldron. Over the past few years, he has contributed a lot of pill recipe, which is a great contribution to the development of my Profound Pill Sect!”


Baili Yunsang sighed and said, “How could I not know this? However, it is precisely because this matter involves the Medicine King Cauldron that we need to act cautiously. If he really doesn’t have any ulterior motives towards my Profound Pill Sect, that would be for the best, but if he is a spy sent by another family…”


Yu Boyang nodded lightly, “You’re right, we can’t be careless about this matter.” After pausing for a moment, he continued, “Wouldn’t it be better to directly capture him and interrogate him carefully? Why bother luring him to leave? It’ll be quite troublesome!”


Baili Yunsang shook his head and said, “His reputation is now widespread. Among Heaven Pill Master, there aren’t many in our Sect who can compare to him. If we make a big fuss about it, it’s hard to guarantee that the news won’t leak out. If other disciples see this, it will definitely be troublesome, so we might as well act quietly. When the time comes, we can investigate the truth and then explain.”


Hearing this, Yu Boyang nodded and said, “Sect Master has considered everything carefully.”


The Profound Pill Sect was quite far from the Void Spirit Sword Sect, so even if they rode at full speed, it would still take them half a month. When Gao Ming first brought Yang Kai to the Profound Pill Sect, it had taken them quite some time, but this time, with Hua Rong and Yang Kai using their spiritual force to fly, their speed was naturally much faster.


Although she had only been promoted for half a year, she is still a genuine Spirit Rank cultivator and had the ability to fly.


Yang Kai’s Ninth Order Heaven Rank cultivation was different from others. The amount of spiritual force stored in his body was large enough to sustain him for a long time. If it was an ordinary Heaven Rank cultivator, they wouldn’t be able to fly for long.


The journey was as fast as lightning, and in less than a day, they had covered more than half the distance.


Hua Rong suddenly turned to look at Li Zhengqing, “Are you very hot?”


Li Zhengqing was sweating profusely as he forced a smile, “Young Lady must be joking, it’s just that this is the first time this old master has flown so high, so I can’t help feeling nervous.”


Hua Rong nodded lightly and comforted, “Don’t worry, I won’t throw you down.”


Li Zhengqing nodded.


Another day later, the mountain peak where the Void Spirit Sword Sect was located came into view, and the group landed directly in front of the mountain gate, Hua Rong's face filled with surprise as she stared at Yang Kai.


After flying for two days, even though she was now a Spirit Rank cultivator, she still couldn’t support herself. Along the way, she had consumed several Spirit Pills personally refined by Yang Kai to supplement her consumption.


On the other hand, Yang Kai, who was a Ninth Order Heaven Rank master, didn’t even seem to struggle. In comparison, it was as if her cultivation was much lower than Yang Kai’s.


However, after flying back here, she clearly felt that Yang Kai’s consumption of spiritual force was no less than hers…


How did he do it?


However, now was not the time to think about such things. As soon as she landed, she felt that something was wrong. There was actually no one guarding the entrance to the Void Spirit Sword Sect, and the entire Void Spirit Sword Sect seemed to be empty.


However, she was also keenly aware that there were some powerful auras lurking around, quietly observing this place.


“Sir!” Hua Rong took a deep breath and leaned closer to Yang Kai, her beautiful eyes filled with solemnity.


Yang Huai’s flesh and blood also tensed up, like a ferocious beast that had just been released from its cage, and an indescribable murderous aura burst forth from his body! As his flesh and blood squirmed, a loud rumbling sound rang out from his body as he grew three inches taller.


Although he didn’t have the powerful perception of Hua Rong, he had an extremely sharp instinct, just like a vicious beast falling into a hunter’s trap. The surrounding ambience made him feel like he was facing a great enemy.


“Li Zhengqing!” Yang Kai narrowed his eyes and called out softly.


“This subordinate is here!” Li Zhengqing lowered his head and replied, his whole body trembling and sweat pouring down his forehead.


“How do I treat you?” Yang Kai glanced at him coldly.


Li Zhengqing said in a trembling voice, “If it weren’t for Sir’s appreciation back then, this old master would never have been able to break through to the Heaven Rank. Sir’s kindness to this old master is akin to giving me a rebirth!”


“What a good words!” Yang Kai coldly snorted, “Then, is this how you repay me?”


Li Zhengqing’s face immediately paled, but he still stubbornly said, “What does Sir mean? This subordinate does not know.”


“I’ll give you one last chance, how is my master?” Yang Kai stared into his eyes and asked.


Li Zhengqing hesitated for a moment before forcing himself to speak, “Sir, the old Sect Master is seriously ill…”


Clang… A clear sword cry rang out, and as the sword light flashed, Li Zhengqing felt as if he had been struck by lightning. Reaching out his hand to cover his throat, he staggered two steps back and stared at Yang Kai in disbelief, hoarsely calling out, “Sir… Sir…”


Between his fingers, blood gushed out uncontrollably.


Yang Kai held the Clear Void Sword at an angle, a drop of blood slowly dripping from his sword, his black hair and clothes fluttering in the wind.


“A sword that hasn’t been unsheathed for a long time, do you really think it's just a decoration? Get out here!”


As the sword slashed down, Sword Qi overflowed, leaving behind only the brilliance of this sword!
