MARTIAL PEAK 4557
After a while, Yang Kai happily took the Loyalty List from Luan Bai Feng’s hands. On the last page, there were three bright red words: Luan Bai Feng.
Since Chen Tian Fei took the initiative to offer up this Loyalty List, nine pages had been used up.
Each page contained the life essence and divine soul brand of a person.
Chen Tian Fei, Hei He, Yun Xinghua, Mao Zhe, Geng Qing, Zhou Ya, Grey Bones, Xin Peng, Luan Bai Feng!
If one of them died, a new blank page would appear on the Loyalty List. Among these nine people, there were five who had reached the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage, which helped Yang Kai a lot.
If he didn’t have the Loyalty List, Yang Kai wouldn’t have been able to bring out the three masters of Profound Yang Mountain from Shadowless Cave Heaven. Without the Loyalty List, he wouldn’t have been able to cooperate with Grey Bones in the Crime Star, let alone subdue Luan Bai Feng today!
The Loyalty List is a High Rank Open Heaven artifact that had been refined by Zhongyi Mo many years ago. It was refined from the skin and flesh of the Holy Spirit Xiezhi and possessed a great binding power.
However, although the Loyalty List was powerful, it still depended on who was using it.
In the past, Chen Tian Fei had also held the Loyalty List, but he was only a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. The Loyalty List was of no use to him, but when it fell into Yang Kai’s hands, it was completely different.
“No wonder Xin Peng had the courage to betray me, so that’s how it is!” Luan Bai Feng’s face sank as she stared at the Loyalty List. Just now, she had seen Xin Peng’s name in the Loyalty List and her previous doubts had been explained. Under the restraint of the Loyalty List, Xin Peng would naturally obey Yang Kai’s orders.
Yang Kai chuckled, “Don’t act like you’re so unwilling. Relying on me is better than staying in the Black Prison. The outside world is very vast, if you have nothing to do, you should come out more often.”
Luan Bai Feng coldly snorted, “Winner is the king, Loser is the villain.”
Yang Kai turned around and looked around, “Your subordinates don’t seem very loyal!”
Luan Bai Feng’s face went blue.
She had not come out alone this time and had even brought some of her subordinates with her. However, when she was fighting with Yang Kai just now, none of these subordinates had stepped forward to help her. This was because Yang Kai’s actions were too fast for them to react, but if they were truly loyal, they could naturally step forward to save her.
In fact, up until now, these people had only been observing from a distance outside the ship and had no intention of approaching. Some of them even assumed a posture of preparing to flee at any moment.
“What are you all looking at? Scram!” Luan Bai Feng was furious.
A dozen Open Heaven Stage cultivators of different grades rushed into the flying ship and disappeared.
Luan Bai Feng turned to look at Yang Kai, “Are you satisfied now? I’ve already left my name on the Loyalty List, what do you want me to do?”
“I’m not busy, it’s more important for me to let you heal first. You’re quite a beautiful woman, so I can’t bear to see you burn like this,” Yang Kai said as he activated his Towering Evergreen Secret Technique, causing a thick life force to envelop Luan Bai Feng.
Although Luan Bai Feng had tried her best to resist the Golden Crow True Fire just now, her entire body was still scorched and her exposed skin was covered in blisters.
Looking at her, Luan Bai Feng definitely felt an unbearable pain, but she didn’t utter a single word, her endurance quite strong.
At this moment, the Towering Evergreen was urged, causing Luan Bai Feng’s injuries to heal at a speed visible to the naked eye. Resisting the piercing numbness, Luan Bai Feng turned her head and said, “It’s just a small favor, don’t expect this Queen to thank you.”
Although she appeared calm on the surface, her heart was filled with shock. Her injuries had been burned by the Golden Crow’s True Fire, yet Yang Kai’s Wood Element Divine Ability had such an obvious recovery ability. Just what grade of Wood Element did he condensed before being promoted to the Open Heaven Stage?
Yang Kai said, “Now that you’ve submitted to me, I naturally won’t mistreat you. I don’t expect you to thank me.”
Luan Bai Feng frowned and closed her eyes, calmly enjoying the rich vitality and healing of her wounds. After a moment, she suddenly opened her mouth and asked, “Xin Peng was ordered by you to lead me out of the mountain, so how much of what he said was true?”
“It’s basically all true,” Yang Kai replied lightly.
Luan Bai Feng suddenly opened her eyes and asked, “Is it true that Zuo Quan Hui was injured?”
Luan Bai Feng’s brow wrinkled slightly as she thought about it for a moment before nodding slightly, “It must be you who injured him. Your abilities… are beyond imagination!”
Even though she had personally fought with Yang Kai, Luan Bai Feng still couldn’t understand how a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage could possess such strength.
“Zuo Quan Hui was careless and underestimated his opponent, allowing me to take advantage of this opportunity. If it weren’t for that, how difficult would it have been to injure a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator?”
“Since your Void Land has already fallen out with Zuo Quan Hui, why did you come here instead of guarding the Void Land? Although I am also a Sixth Order, even ten of me are no match for Zuo Quan Hui. If you expect me to fight Zuo Quan Hui, I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed. Or… did you come here this time to take revenge? After all, I’ve made things difficult for you twice.”
Yang Kai chuckled lightly, “The Void Land is impregnable. With or without me, Zuo Quan Hui can’t do anything about it. I’m not here for you, I’m here for the Black Prison! The Black Prison is rich in resources, I need a lot of cultivation resources!”
Luan Bai Feng gritted her teeth, “Shameless!”
Yang Kai chuckled and withdraw the Towering Evergreen, “Whatever you say. Let’s go, take me to the Black Prison.”
Luan Bai Feng glared at him fiercely before reluctantly turning around, “Follow me!”
Returning to the ship, Xin Peng also ran back and when he saw Luan Bai Feng again, he wore an awkward expression, but Luan Bai Feng didn’t even look at him.
This woman also knew that her failure this time was due to Xin Peng’s enticement, but the main culprit was still Yang Kai. Even if she wanted to kill Xin Peng to take revenge, Yang Kai would not allow it, so she simply didn’t want to embarrass herself.
On the ship, the other dozen or so Open Heaven Stage masters all stared at Yang Kai in awe. Just now, they had personally witnessed how Luan Bai Feng was unable to fight back against Yang Kai, so they knew how powerful this man was.
The ship wasn’t too far from the Black Prison, so it only took a moment to return.
After passing through the Domain Gate, they soon arrived at the Black Territory.
A faint yellow light enveloped the entire void. Standing on the deck, Yang Kai looked up and saw that in the distant void, a great sun was emitting a brilliant light. However, it was different from an ordinary sun. This round sun gave off a feeling of old age, like an old man on the verge of death. On the surface of this great sun, black spots would occasionally burst out.
Yang Kai had condensed his Golden Crow True Fire and also had the Golden Crow Sun Casting Divine Ability Manifefstation, so as soon as he stepped into this black territory, he felt an indescribable feeling lingering in his heart.
He could clearly feel that this round sun of the Black Territory was about to die!
He had experienced the death of the Sun before. When he had escaped from the Seven Skillful Land, he had personally witnessed the death of a Sun Star. It was there that he had obtained the corpse of an adult Golden Crow and was able to refine it.
However, he had not expected to see such a scene again after so many years.
Perhaps hundreds or thousands of years, or even tens of thousands of years, the Sun Star of the Black Territory would eventually be destroyed.
Looking around, there was only this round sun in the entire Black Territory. Once this Sun Star was destroyed, the Black Territory would fall into complete darkness.
The sun was about to die, and even the entire Black Territory felt a sense of solemnity.
“The Black Territory doesn’t seem big?” Yang Kai asked after observing for a while.
Luan Bai Feng unconsciously ran her fingers through her hair and casually said, “The Black Territrory isn’t big, compared to the other Great Domains, it’s pitifully small. There’s only one Sun Star, have you ever seen a Great Domain like this?”
Yang Kai nodded slightly, “Indeed, I haven’t.”
Luan Bai Feng said, “Legend has it that a long time ago, the Black Territory was similar to the other great domains. It was vast and stretched across the void, but for some reason, it slowly shrank and eventually became the size it is today. Perhaps when the last Sun Star was destroyed, the entire Black Territory would no longer exist. However, it was also thanks to this that no one care about the Black Territory. Otherwise, how could a woman like me occupy such a piece of land? The environment here is so harsh that cultivators below the Open Heaven Stage cannot survive. Only those at the Open Heaven Stage can survive. If it really was such a prosperous place, it would have long been occupied by other forces.”
“You’re right,” Yang Kai agreed. Looking up, he saw many celestial bodies of various sizes floating quietly in the air. The smaller ones were only a few dozen kilometers in diameter, while the larger ones were comparable to the Star Boundary. However, the celestial bodies he could see were all riddled with craters and cracks, with some of them even being torn apart.
It was obvious that there were traces of human activity in these celestial bodies.
“These are…” Yang Kai frowned slightly.
Luan Bai Feng said, “All of the celestial bodies in the Black Territory are mining stars that nurture black stones. What you see are all mining stars that have been mined before. This is only the outermost layer.”
Yang Kai understood and was about to ask more questions when Luan Bai Feng waved her hand, “Don’t disturb me for now, we’ve already reached the area covered by the Formations. If you want to die together, just say so. If you don’t want to die, just shut up. Also, don’t use your Divine Sense to scan the surroundings! This place is very strange.”
Yang Kai rubbed his nose and didn’t say anything. Turning his head, he saw that the other Open Heaven Stage cultivators on the ship were all tense, as if they were about to encounter some great danger.
Everyone’s eyes were fixed on Luan Bai Feng. At this moment, this woman’s expression was extremely solemn as she constantly changed her hand seals, guiding the ship through the void.
A moment later, Yang Kai clearly felt that there was some kind of terrifying power lying dormant in the surrounding void. This power gave him the feeling that it was in a deep sleep, and even the slightest abnormal movement could awaken this power and bring about a world-destroying disaster.
Because of Luan Bai Feng’s previous warning, Yang Kai didn’t dare to rashly investigate, secretly shocked. This Black Territory was truly dangerous, he didn’t know how Luan Bai Feng had managed to survive here.
