MARTIAL PEAK 4551
Heavenly Moon Palace is Zhu Jiuyin’s residence. This woman was originally Yang Kai’s Dao Protector, and when he brought her out from the Great Ruins Boundary, they had discussed this matter. However, the last time he went to Shadowless Cave Heaven, Zhu Jiu Yin had secretly escorted him all the way, so this Dao Protector’s identity was removed.
In other words, Zhu Jiu Yin was now free and was no longer bound by the Source Oath, so Yang Kai’s life and death had nothing to do with her.
If it weren’t for the fact that she had to teach Shan Qingluo, a descendant of her bloodline, it was hard to say whether Zhu Jiu Yin would still be in the Void Land.
This woman was not easy to talk to. In the past, when she was a Dao Protector, even if Yang Kai wanted her to do something, he would have to try his best to persuade her. Now, it would be very difficult to get her help.
When Yang Kai had heard that something had happened to the Three Brilliance World, he had guessed that Zuo Quan Hui must have taken action and rushed to the Three Brilliance World to provide assistance, so he had asked Bian Yuqing to inform Zhu Jiu Yin to borrow her strength.
However, from beginning to end, this woman hadn’t shown up, obviously not intending to interfere.
Requesting help at this time might not be useful.
But since he was already here, he had to try.
Having made up his mind, Yang Kai cupped his fists and shouted, “Senior, Yang Kai requests an audience!”
To his surprise, as soon as the voice fell, the door to Heavenly Moon Palace slowly opened. Yang Kai raised his brow, wondering when Zhu Jiu Yin had become so easy to talk to. Suddenly, a spider web shot out from inside and enveloped him.
Yang Kai was shocked and wanted to retreat, but after the battle with Zuo Quan Hui, he was completely exhausted and had no time to recover. In a moment of carelessness, he was caught by the spider web and dragged into Heavenly Moon Palace.
With a bang, the door closed!
Soon, a series of banging sounds came from inside.
A moment later, the door opened again and Yang Kai was thrown out like a rag sack, rolling on the ground a few times before standing up in a sorry state. His face was swollen and there was a large black mark on his eye, the mark of Zhu Jiu Yin’s punch.
Yang Kai’s lungs were about to explode from anger as he vigilantly pulled away from the Heavenly Moon Palace’s door, gritting his teeth, “Crazy woman, if you have something to say just say it, why did you attack?”
Although his injuries weren’t serious, they were a bit too ugly. After all, he is the master of the Void Land, and the scene just now had been witnessed by many of the nearby disciples.
“This Queen is willing to do so, if you have the ability, then fight back!” Zhu Jiu Yin’s voice rang out in Yang Kai’s mind.
Yang Kai said resentfully, “Senior is a Holy Spirit, this little brat knows he is not Senior’s opponent, but this little brat is extremely respectful towards Senior and has never lacked daily offerings. If there is something wrong, Senior can tell this little brat clearly, what is the point of directly attacking someone?”
“You want to reason with this Queen? Fine, this Queen will try to reason with you!” Zhu Jiu coldly snorted, “Let me ask you, is Yin-Yang Heaven’s Young Master happy?”
Yang Kai’s aura suddenly weakened as the corners of his eyes twitched, “Does Senior know?”
In his heart, he cursed, who was the one who spread the news? Zhu Jiu Yin had lived in Heavenly Moon Palace and never left her house, so who had told her about this? But thinking about it carefully, Zhu Jiu Yin is a Holy Spirit, so if she wanted to find out some information, no one in this Void Land could hide it from her.
“What are you feeling guilty about?” Zhu Jiu Yin sneered.
Yang Kai clenched his fists and coughed dryly, “Senior must be joking, this matter was simply too much of a coincidence, it really wasn’t my intention!”
“I don’t care if it’s your intention or not, it’s the truth!”
Yang Kai blinked, “But what does this have to do with Senior?”
Zhu Jiu coldly snorted, “Luo'er has always been infatuated with you, and now that she's in closed door cultivation, you’re actually fooling around outside and it’s not convenient for her to act. As her Master, why can’t I teach you a lesson on her behalf?”
Yang Kai was speechless, thinking that if Luo'er knew about this, she would definitely try to squeeze him dry and not casually attack him.
He said insincerely, “Senior’s strength is profound, so whatever you say is right. But now, I have something I need Senior’s help with.”
Zhu Jiu Yin didn’t wait for him to say what it was and instead said, “Don’t even think about it. You’re the one who caused this trouble, so you should settle it yourself. Otherwise, if Luo'er finds out that I, as her Master, am the one to clean up your romantic debt, won’t she blame me?”
“Senior, that’s not how you put it. That Zuo Quan Hui is a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master. Right now, no one in my Void Land can defeat him except for you. This time, we managed to force him to retreat, what if he comes back again?”
“I’ll teach you a method!” Zhu Jiu Yin said lightly.
Yang Kai raised his brow and respectfully said, “Senior, please enlighten me!”
“Next time you meet Zuo Quan Hui, wash your neck clean and stretch it out… let him cut it in half.” [MSN: why doesn't he kick out this bitch yet? Can she take Qingluo away with Bi Xi guarding the place? Is Qingluo willing to follow her? As always, what a waste of space.]
Yang Kai’s face instantly turned black. He still had some hope for Zhu Jiu Yin just now, how naive…
“If you die, Luo'er will no longer be restrained. At that time, this Queen will take her with me. This world is vast, so where can’t I go? At least I won’t have to follow a person like you who has no sense of direction.” [MSN: If Luo'er still want to live...]
Yang Kai flicked his sleeves and said, “If you don’t want to help, then don’t. Why are you trying to make things difficult for me? It’s too infuriating! If I had known this would happen, I wouldn’t have brought you out of the Great Ruins Boundary and let you die of old age inside.”
With a loud bang, the tightly shut door of Heavenly Moon Palace opened again and Zhu Jiu Yin said, “Come, come, come in, I’ll show you something good!”
The Space Laws surged and Yang Kai instantly disappeared.
Three days later, in the Void Land’s Discussion Hall.
Yang Kai sat at the head of the table, with many Sixth Order and Fifth Order cultivators gathered below him. The group of people would occasionally look up at Yang Kai, Old Bai, Chef, and the others trying to hold back their laughter as their shoulders trembled.
Yue He, on the other hand, wore a pained expression.
Yang Kai glanced down and said in a neutral tone, “If you want to laugh, just laugh. What’s the point of holding back? Aren’t you afraid you’ll suffocate?”
Old Bai and the others couldn’t hold back their laughter any longer.
Grey Bones asked with concern, “Sir, are your injuries still not healed? This Zuo Quan Hui’s methods are quite ruthless, how…” Before he could finish speaking, Zhou Ya, who was sitting next to him, tugged at his sleeve.
Grey Bones couldn’t understand. These past few days, he had been healing himself, so he wasn’t too sure what was happening outside. All he knew was that after coming here today, he saw Yang Kai sitting on top of it with a pair of big dark circles under his eyes, looking both miserable and angry.
Yang Kai coughed helplessly, “Are you done laughing? If you are, let’s get down to business!”
Yang Kai cursed in his heart. It was one thing for Zhu Jiu Yin to beat him up that day, but now that he had been hit in the eye, she had actually used her Source Energy, causing his eyes to turn black and blue for the past few days. He didn’t know how long it would take for him to recover.
After hiding for a few days, he really couldn’t hide any longer, so he decided to just come out and meet them.
Seeing Yang Kai’s embarrassment, Old Bai and the others stopped laughing and sat up straight.
“Is everyone’s injuries alright?” Yang Kai asked.
Hua Yong stood up and said, “Many thanks for Sir’s concern. Our injuries aren’t serious, and after a few days of rest, we’ve recovered.”
Yang Kai nodded lightly, “It’s best to pay more attention to your wife’s body. After all, she just gave birth not long ago. Later, you should go find Second Manager and collect some supplements for her.”
After several years of pregnancy, Shu Mu Dan finally gave birth to a child, which was more than half a year ago. Yang Kai had also taken a look at this child before. This child was naturally intelligent and had an extraordinary aptitude. After all, a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage like Shu Mu Dan had given birth to a Spiritual Embryo that had been nurtured for many years and was not something an ordinary child could compare with.
“Many thanks, Sir!” Hua Yong hurriedly said.
Yang Kai nodded and continued, “Guo Ziyan reported that a group of five people had left the Void Territory, all of them with powerful cultivations, four men and one woman. I can confirm that they are Zuo Quan Hui and the others.”
When everyone heard this, they all breathed a sigh of relief. Although Zuo Quan Hui had suffered such a great loss that he shouldn’t have stayed in the Void Territory for too long and would definitely have found a place to recuperate, no one could say for sure if he would really do so.
Zuo Quan Hui is a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. If he really stayed in the Void Territory and wreaked havoc everywhere, the Void Territory would not have any good methods to deal with him.
“Also, what about the Three Brilliance World, Second Manager?” Yang Kai turned to look at Bian Yuqing.
Bian Yuqing replied, “The loss of the Three Brilliance World is not small. After all, it’s only a Lower Realm, and the destruction caused by the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage is not something they can bear. Almost twenty percent of the land was destroyed, causing the entire Three Brilliance World to be in a state of unrest. Many people died from natural disasters, and I have already sent people to Three Brilliance World to assist World Master Peng in taking in refugees to stabilize the hearts of the people. However, this will not be effective in a short period of time. If the Three Brilliance World wants to restore its vitality, it will take at least hundreds or thousands of years. Moreover, the terrain that has been changed will not be restored.”
Yang Kai said, “Whether or not the terrain can be restored is secondary, the most important thing is the people. If the Three Brilliance World has any requests, try to satisfy them.”
“Yes!” After hesitating for a moment, Bian Yuqing said, “Sect Master, with the lesson learned by Three Brilliance World, should we send someone to guard the other lower realms?”
Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “There are more than a dozen Lower Realms in the Void Territory. If we send someone to guard this place, the gap will be too big, and with the current situation, who can we send to guard this place? Zuo Quan Hui’s Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage is something none of us here can resist, so even if we go, it will be useless. Moreover… Zuo Quan Hui was born in Thousand Crane Paradise, so this time, he took the risk of offending the world to attack a Lower Realm because he had some scruples. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have used Underworld Heavenly Monarch to deal with the Three Brilliance World and instead let his two disciples take action. Underworld Heavenly Monarch's reputation is already quite bad, and it’s not like he hasn’t done such a thing before, so it wouldn’t hurt to try again. In comparison, Zuo Quan Hui still cares about his reputation, so I don’t think it’s likely he will attack the Lower Realm again!”
Everyone nodded slightly and Yue He said, “If he does this, Thousand Crane Paradise will definitely make things difficult for him. Although the rumors say that his faction betrayed Thousand Crane Paradise, as long as one isn’t an idiot, they will know that this is just a cover. His actions, to a certain extent, are related to the face of Thousand Crane Paradise. If he attacks a lower realm's being, Thousand Crane Paradise can’t afford to lose face.”
