The Space Laws fluctuated wildly as two figures flew towards the depths of Shattered Heaven. It was Yang Kai and Xia Linlang. Even though they were far away from the previous battlefield, Yang Kai’s killing intent and the Dragon Vein in his body were still raging.
After being corroded by the white-robed man’s blood mist, a strange power was surging through his body, making it difficult for him to control the power of the Dragon Vein, making him want to transform into a half dragon.
Forcefully suppressing this inexplicable impulse, Yang Kai urged his strength to expel this force from his body, but to his surprise, this force seemed to have a mind of its own as it surged towards his shoulder. In the next moment, his left shoulder felt like it was being branded by a hot iron and he felt a sharp pain.
Yang Kai couldn’t help letting out a muffled groan.
However, the surging Dragon Vein’s power finally calmed down.
“What’s going on?” Xia Linlang turned her head and asked. From the moment the white-robed man appeared, she had felt that Yang Kai’s condition was very strange. If she hadn’t forcibly taken him away, with his condition, he would have fought to the death with him.
Of course, with Yang Kai’s display of strength, even if the white-robed man had helpers, they wouldn’t be able to resist him, but with Zhao Yi present, it was impossible for Yang Kai to succeed.
“I ran into an interesting guy,” Yang Kai coldly snorted as he lifted his clothes and turned his head to look at his left shoulder, only to see a bird-shaped mark on it.
At first glance, this mark seemed to be alive, flapping its wings as if it was about to fly away, its eyes filled with mockery.
“What is this!?” Xia Linlang exclaimed.
Yang Kai didn’t say anything and simply lifted his hand to cut off his shoulder. The flesh and blood branded with the bird-shaped mark was instantly cut off, and under Yang Kai’s control, it exploded into ashes.
The flesh around the wound squirmed as the Dragon Vein and Wood Element’s powerful regenerative abilities were displayed. In less than a dozen breaths of time, the flesh that had been cut off had regrown.
However, the bird-shaped mark that should have been cut off along with his flesh and blood was still vividly imprinted on his shoulder, as if it would accompany Yang Kai forever.
Yang Kai coldly snorted. Although he had guessed that this would be the result, when he saw it with his own eyes, he still felt somewhat unhappy.
Xia Linlang’s expression became extremely ugly, “Is it a tracking mark?”
Yang Kai nodded and turned to look at her, “Now that I’m in a bad situation, I advise you to part ways with me. Those people’s goal is the World Spring, so there’s no need for you to get involved with me. If you act alone, you may have a chance to escape.”
Xia Linlang shook her head, “Even if I were to separate from you, it would be of no use. The news of the two of us together should have already spread throughout the Shattered Heaven. Like you, I am also their target.” Saying so, she smiled bitterly, “Your words before were like a prophecy, now the two of us really have become grasshoppers tied in a rope together.”
Although they had been forced when Grandma Jiu and the others arrived at their doorstep, their situation wasn’t too bad. Who would have thought that after only half a year, the two of them would become the target of everyone in the Shattered Heaven? In this huge Shattered Heaven, there was hardly any place for them to stand.
“In this situation, we can either think of a way to escape, as long as we can leave Shattered Heaven, we’ll be safe, but the chances are slim. If we turn around now, who knows how many battles we’ll have to face? If it’s just the Seventh Order, then so be it, but now even the Eighth Order has been dispatched. If we really run into them, neither of us will be able to resist.”
Hearing this, Xia Linlang nodded, “The Universe Four Pillars are enough for an Eighth Grade master to covet.”
Yang Kai turned to look at her, “That’s why we need to find a place where even an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage master would find it difficult to reach. I’m not familiar with Shattered Heaven, do you have any good suggestions?”
The bird-shaped mark on his shoulder has the effect of tracking him. Although Yang Kai wasn’t sure how far it could track, he could only prepare for the worst.
Behind the white-robed man stood Bright Sun Divine Monarch. Finding a place to hide was unrealistic, and sooner or later he would be tracked.
“If you can find a Universe Paradise or Universe Cave Heaven that has not been found…”
Before Xia Linlang could finish her words, Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “This hope is too slim. I won’t hide it from you, I’ve already observed everything along the way, but unfortunately, I didn’t gain anything.”
Xia Linlang pursed her lips tightly as she hesitated.
Yang Kai frowned and said, “No matter how bad the situation is, it can’t be worse than the current situation. Perhaps we can only survive. If you have a place to go, you can just say so.”
“Shattered Ruins!” Xia Linlang raised her head. She also knew that Yang Kai didn’t know what kind of place this Shattered Ruins was, so she took the initiative to explain, “Shattered Ruins is the deepest part of Shattered Heaven. It is rumored that it was the final battlefield of the great battle in ancient times. Countless High Rank Open Heaven masters fell there, so there are countless Divine Abilities and Secret Techniques left behind by ancient masters. The environment there is extremely harsh, and even a Seventh and Eighth Order Open Heaven cultivator who lives in seclusion in Shattered Heaven wouldn’t easily set foot there, because not only are there remnants of Divine Abilities and Secret Arts, there are also Spirit Arrays and Artifacts. If one is not careful, no one can guarantee that they can escape unscathed.”
“What?” Yang Kai asked.
“However, there are many Holy Spirits living in Shattered Ruins, so it has always been a forbidden area for us human cultivators.”
“Holy Spirit!” Yang Kai raised his brow, “Is there a Dragon Clan?”
Xia Linlang shook her head, “I’m not sure. I’ve been in Shattered Heaven for so many years, but I’ve never seen a Dragon Clan before. Why are you looking for a Dragon Clan?”
Yang Kai naturally wouldn’t tell her that he had the Dragon Clan’s bloodline, so he casually replied, “I’m just curious. I heard that the dragon and phoenix are the leaders of the Holy Spirits and have admired them for a long time, but unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to meet them.”
Xia Linlang couldn’t help laughing, “The Dragon Clan has always been arrogant. If we really meet them, I’m afraid you and I will have to worry about being implicated.”
“Let’s go to Shattered Ruins!” Yang Kai said decisively.
Although Xia Linlang was somewhat hesitant, she knew that in Shattered Heaven, besides the Shattered Ruins, the two of them had nowhere else to go, so she could only nod and give Yang Kai directions.
Along the way, Xia Linlang told Yang Kai what she knew about the Shattered Ruins. Although she had stayed in Shattered Heaven for thousands of years, she didn’t know much about the Shattered Ruins, only that it was an extremely dangerous place with many Holy Spirits. If she really entered it, she would definitely die.
This time, if she hadn’t been forced into a corner, she wouldn’t have even thought about entering the Shattered Ruins.
A dozen days later, the two of them gradually approached the Shattered Ruins. Xia Linlang was obviously a bit nervous, her entire body tense, as if she was about to encounter a catastrophe at any moment.
Just as Yang Kai was about to offer a few words of comfort, his expression suddenly changed and his figure that was rushing forward suddenly froze.
A tyrannical aura suddenly locked him down from thousands of kilometers away.
Xia Linlang also noticed this and turned around, her beautiful face pale, “It’s Bright Sun Divine Monarch!”
At the end of his field of vision, a stream of light shot towards him at an incredible speed. When he first saw it, the light was dim, but in the blink of an eye, it became clear.
“Let’s go!” Yang Kai shouted and grabbed Xia Linlang’s arm, wanting to use his Space Laws to escape, but before he could do anything, the aura locking onto him suddenly tightened.
Yang Kai’s blurry figure immediately reappeared, and his Space Teleportation was interrupted at the most critical moment, causing him to spit out a mouthful of blood.
Seeing this, Xia Linlang quickly circulated her strength, wrapped herself around Yang Kai, and flew forward.
A loud and clear voice rang out beside her ear, “Junior, if you want to live, you’d better stay where you are, otherwise if this King catches up to you, I’ll make you wish you were dead!”
How could Xia Linlang pay any attention to him? Although Zhao Yi had said that Bright Sun Divine Monarch had a good character and had never taken advantage of his position to bully others, it was hard to believe so when Bright Sun Divine Monarch would threaten her like this before he even arrived.
A moment later, a tall and mighty figure flashed across the sky. It was one of the few Eighth Order Open Heaven masters in Shattered Heaven, Bright Sun Divine Monarch.
The reason he was able to chase Yang Kai here was naturally because of the tracking mark the white-robed man had planted on Yang Kai’s body. At this moment, on the back of Bright Sun Divine Monarch's hand, there was a mark identical to the one on Yang Kai’s shoulder. Obviously, it was the white-robed man’s doing.
The two seals came from the same person and were also related by blood, so no matter how far away they were, they were able to resonate with each other. This was also the reason why Bright Sun Divine Monarch was able to chase them so accurately.
It wasn’t that Yang Kai didn’t want to get rid of this seal, but along the way, Yang Kai had tried many methods, but he had never been able to get rid of it. Moreover, he hadn’t had much time to squander while fleeing.
Three figures, one in front and one behind, rushed forward.
However, the distance between the two of them was clearly shrinking rapidly. With the Eighth Order Open Heaven personally taking action, Yang Kai was unable to easily use Space Teleportation, so it was impossible for the two of them to escape.
Half a day later, Yang Kai raised his eyes and looked around, only to see a multicolored light filling his field of vision, like a giant nebula stretching across the void, covering an area of tens of thousands of kilometers.
Even though they were separated by a great distance, Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling somewhat frightened, because there was a dangerous aura emanating from the colorful light.
“That’s the Shattered Ruins!” Xia Linlang’s expression also became somewhat absent-minded, “That multi-colored light should be the Divine Ability and Secret Technique left behind by an ancient Great Expert.”
As she spoke, her lips became dry as she turned to Yang Kai and asked, “Are we really going in?”
Before entering the Shattered Ruins, Xia Linlang felt a sense of impending doom. If she really entered, who knew what she would encounter?
“Do we still have a choice?” Yang Kai coldly snorted, his eyes filled with determination.
Xia Linlang smiled bitterly as Bright Sun Divine Monarch closed in behind her. Unless the two of them stood in place and entrusted their lives to Bright Sun Divine Monarch's mercy, they could only walk down this path.
Bright Sun Divine Monarch, who was chasing after them, obviously noticed their intentions, and his expression couldn’t help becoming solemn as he shouted, “The environment in Shattered Ruins is extremely harsh. Not to mention the two of you, even if this King were to enter it, I wouldn’t dare say I would be able to survive. If the two of you enter Shattered Ruins, you will definitely die!”
