MARTIAL PEAK 4550
The Golden Crow True Fire burned fiercely, and even though Zhou Ti was a Sixth Order, it was difficult for him to resist the power of this fire. His miserable screams never ceased, and although he struggled with all his might, he was unable to break free from Yang Kai’s grasp.
Zuo Quan Hui’s eyelids twitched violently as the World Force in his body surged, causing the cracks on his face to peel off. After a moment of hesitation, the surging World Force gradually calmed down.
Just as Yang Kai had said, it wasn’t that he didn’t want to save him, it was just that he couldn’t! Yang Kai’s last move, the Sun and Moon Divine Wheel, contained an extremely profound power that was rapidly corroding his flesh and blood, causing him unbearable pain and disrupting the law of his Small Universe.
This Divine Ability was actually able to greatly affect the Small Universe!
He had to divert most of his attention to suppress the erosion of this power, otherwise, his small universe would become unstable and cause endless trouble. At this moment, the strength he could display was less than thirty percent of his peak!
He didn’t have the confidence to snatch Zhou Ti back under the eyes of the Void Land’s people. If he really did that, his injuries might worsen.
“Master… save me!” Zhou Ti’s miserable cry echoed in her ears. The eyes of the Sixth Order woman were already blurred by tears. Seeing her Senior Brother suffer such inhuman torture, the pain in her heart was indescribable.
Seeing Zhou Ti’s vitality rapidly dissipate and his entire body being burnt to a crisp, the Sixth Order woman couldn’t bear it any longer and rushed forward to snatch him back.
A sword light appeared in front of her and the Sixth Order woman turned to look at Zuo Quan Hui, “Master?”
Zuo Quan Hui slowly shook his head.
The light from Zhou Ti’s eyes rapidly dimmed as he seemed to understand something, a bitter smile appearing on his face as he stopped struggling and shouting.
A moment later, a powerful World Force burst out and dissipated into the void. Zhou Ti had finally died and his small universe had collapsed.
Yang Kai put away the Golden Crow True Fire and casually shook the charred corpse of Zhou Ti, before turning his cold eyes to Zuo Quan Hui, “In order to avenge your disciple, you didn’t hesitate to take out your anger on the innocent. Did you ever think that you would lose another disciple? But it doesn’t matter, I’ll send all of you to the Underworld one by one to reunite your family!”
His eyes swept over the five people in front of him, as if he wanted to engrave their appearances and auras into his soul!
The Underworld Heavenly Monarch trio's faces were ashen! This was truly an unexpected disaster. Originally, they had thought that by joining Zuo Quan Hui’s side, they would be able to find a good way out in the future, but who would have thought that they would provoke such a ruthless person? If they had known this would happen, how could they have gotten involved in this mess? After escaping from Crime Star and obtaining freedom, with the three of them having reached the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage, they would have been able to establish their own sect and live a carefree life.
“You killed two of my disciples one after another, this old master will never forgive you if I don’t kill you in this life!” Zuo Quan Hui grit his teeth and shouted.
Yang Kai sneered, “Anyone can talk big. If you have the ability, then let’s fight again and see if you die or I die!”
Zuo Quan Hui didn’t say anything, only coldly staring at Yang Kai as his figure floated away, wrapping his strength around the Sixth Order woman and quickly escaping. Seeing this, the Underworld Heavenly Monarch's trio also hurriedly followed.
Soon, they disappeared!
“Sir, should we chase after him?” Grey Bones asked somewhat unwillingly. Underworld Heavenly Monarch was right in front of him, so he couldn’t wait to kill this man to avenge White Hair. Naturally, he didn’t want to see him leave so blatantly.
“We can’t!” Yang Kai shook his head, “It’s not that Zuo Quan Hui doesn’t have the strength to fight, after all, he’s a Seventh Order master. He only cares about his wings and doesn’t dare to fight lightly. If we really fight again, both sides will suffer greatly.”
If Zuo Quan Hui had acted recklessly just now, there was a high chance he could have saved Zhou Ti, but if he had really done so, his injuries would have been even worse. Perhaps the power of the Sun and Moon Divine Wheel would have affected his foundation and caused his strength to fall.
For the sake of his own safety, Zuo Quan Hui didn’t even care about the lives of his disciples. To put it nicely, Zuo Quan Hui was a man who was willing to pick up and let go, but to put it more bluntly, he was a coward who was afraid of death.
Yue He asked worriedly, “But Young Master, what if they continue to hide in the Void Territory?”
Yang Kai shook his head, “The possibility isn’t high. Their plan this time has failed, so they shouldn’t stay in the Void Territory any longer. They must find a place to rest and recuperate. They won’t stay in the Void Territory for long, but there’s always a chance, so we should be on guard… Cough, cough, let’s go, we’ll return to the Void Land first!”
In this battle, he had exhausted all of his strength. If Zuo Quan Hui were to attack again, he wouldn’t be able to put up much of a fight. Fortunately, the Sun and Moon Divine Wheel had intimidated Zuo Quan Hui and forced him to retreat.
Soon, everyone returned to the Void Land to recuperate.
On Dragon Peak, Yue He came to visit with Yang Kai. Seeing Yang Kai’s miserable appearance, the old man was shocked, “What happened to you? Why are you in such a miserable state? En? This wound… Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage power, did you fight with a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage?”
Yang Kai grinned bitterly, “Old Sir’s eyes are as bright as torches!”
He quickly called out, “Sit down!”
Xiao Hong and Xiao Hei also looked over nervously and quickly helped Yang Kai sit down.
Taking a deep breath, Yang Kai said, “This time, I have to ask Senior Brother to help me heal my injuries. This Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage Sword Intent is extremely difficult to disperse, I don’t know how long it will take for me to do so alone.”
On the way back, Yang Kai had tried to disperse the Sword Intent that had invaded his body, but the effects weren’t great. These Sword Intents were like maggots that couldn’t be dispelled, and the more he tried to disperse them, the more troublesome it became, so as soon as he returned, he immediately rushed over.
The only person in the entire Void Land who could help him in this matter was Zhu Jiu Yin and Bi Xi, the latter was always easier to talk to.
Nodding his head, Bi Xi replied, “Of course. You should focus on healing your injuries and I’ll help you.”
“Many thanks, Senior!” Yang Kai nodded his head in thanks before closing his eyes and activating his Towering Evergreen Secret Technique.
A green light filled the air as the Evergreen Divine Tree, which had shrunk countless times in size, appeared behind Yang Kai, its branches drooping down and giving birth to endless vitality.
The old man raised his brow. Even with his vast knowledge and experience, he had never seen such rich vitality. He secretly sighed in amazement. When Yang Kai had refined the Wood Element, he had definitely refined something incredible.
With the help of this Secret Technique, Yang Kai could easily recover from any injuries he suffered. As long as he could disperse this Sword Intent, Yang Kai would be able to recover in an instant.
Retracting his thoughts, Bi Xi's hands formed a series of hand seals and suddenly struck out towards Yang Kai’s body. This palm strike was soft and seemingly without any strength, but when it hit Yang Kai’s body, it released a powerful shockwave.
Chi… With a loud sound, a visible Sword Qi shot out from Yang Kai’s wound towards his face.
Opening his mouth, Bi Xi bit down on the Sword Qi as if it was a needle.
The needle-like Sword Qi continued to tremble and with a slight push by Bi Xi, the Sword Qi shattered.
One palm after another, Yang Kai’s body was covered in wounds as Sword Qi was forced out.
After half a day, Bi Xi let out a long sigh and slowly withdrew his strength.
Without the influence of the Sword Qi, ordinary injuries were nothing to Yang Kai. Even the wound between his waist and abdomen could be quickly healed by the Towering Evergreen Secret Technique and Dragon Vein.
Half a day later, Yang Kai opened his eyes and said somewhat tiredly, “Many thanks, Senior!”
Waving his hand, Bi Xi said, “It’s nothing, but you, how come you’re up against a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage?”
Yang Kai smiled bitterly and explained the whole story.
Hearing this, Bi Xi frowned and said, “These people from the Paradise are too unscrupulous in their actions, actually using those lower realm creatures to lure you out, how despicable! However, although the Sixth and Seventh Order are only one grade apart, the difference in strength is like the difference between heaven and earth.”
Yang Kai sighed, “That’s right! The power of a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master is indeed difficult to resist, this little brat almost didn’t make it back this time.” Yang Kai rolled his eyes and said, “Senior, although that Zuo Quan Hui was forced to retreat this time, he will definitely not let this matter rest. Sooner or later, he will make a comeback. Although my Void Land’s current size is not small and we have many masters, without a High Rank Open Heaven master, Zuo Quan Hui is basically invincible. I was able to injure him this time because I was caught off guard, but the next time he is on guard, it won’t be easy. If he comes again, how can we guard against him?”
Pointing at him, Bi Xi said, “Don’t even think about it! Even if I wanted to help you, there’s nothing I can do. My true body is too big, and now that your Void Land is still up there, it’s even more difficult for me to move. Unless I take back my true body and transform into a human, I won’t be able to move freely, but if I do that, I’m afraid your Void Land will be gone.”
Yang Kai thought about it for a moment and agreed. With the entire Void Land on his back, it was indeed inconvenient to move about.
“If you find this old master for help, why don’t you find someone else who is better?”
Saying so, he turned to a certain direction and whispered, “If she is willing to take action, wouldn’t a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage be a piece of cake?”
Yang Kai immediately felt a headache coming on, “I’m just afraid I won’t be able to persuade that person…” If that person was easy to talk to, he wouldn’t have come to find him immediately.
“How do you know if you don’t try?”
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before nodding, “Senior is right.”
Saying so, he stood up and said, “I’ll take my leave first, I’ll visit you when I’m free.”
Leaving Dragon Peak with Yue He, Yue He asked with concern, “How are Young Master’s injuries now?”
“It’s not a big deal. The old master helped me force out the Sword Qi, and the rest are just superficial wounds. It won’t be long before I recover. You’ve also consumed a lot of energy in this battle, so you should quickly go back and recuperate. We don’t know what will happen in the future, so we need to maintain our best condition.”
In the previous battle between the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage, Yue He and the Sixth Order woman had fought one on one. Both of their strengths were comparable, so they hadn’t suffered any injuries, but their consumption was not light.
Hearing this, Yue He nodded and said, “Then Young Master should be careful, that person isn’t easy to talk to.”
Yang Kai smiled, “Can she eat me? Don’t worry.”
Yue He then left.
A moment later, Yang Kai stood in front of Heavenly Moon Palace, showing a worried look on his face.
