MARTIAL PEAK 4753


Gu Pan’s movements were extremely fast, and after using a technique to imprison Yang Kai, her figure soared into the sky without any hesitation.


Although they were both Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, Gu Pan had personally witnessed Yang Kai’s strength. During the Yin-Yang Heaven Dao Exchange Conference, above the Crime Star, Thousand Crane Paradise's Zhao Xing was a Sixth Order, but he was quickly killed by Yang Kai.


Zhao Xing was a core disciple of Thousand Crane Paradise and had broken through to the Sixth Order even earlier.


Although Gu Pan was also a core disciple of Lang Ya Paradise, after so many years of cultivation, compared to Zhao Xing at that time, she was no different.


At that time, Yang Kai could easily kill Zhao Xing, so the current Yang Kai was not someone she could fight against.


Therefore, after she had taken the opportunity to seal his freedom, Gu Pan immediately wanted to escape. If it were anyone else, she would have taken the opportunity to kill them, but facing Yang Kai, she couldn’t bring herself to do so.


Suddenly, a large hand grabbed her ankle and when she turned her head to look, she was shocked.


Because with so many layers of restraining power on him, Yang Kai was able to break free in an instant. Yang Kai sat in place, his hand gripping her ankle like an iron hoop.


Gu Pan’s heart sank!


Although she knew that Yang Kai was incredibly powerful, she didn’t expect him to be so powerful.


“Get down here!” Yang Kai shouted as he suddenly pulled his hand, causing the wooden table to shatter and dust to fly everywhere.


The World Force fluctuated wildly as the brush in Gu Pan's hand began to glow, but before she could resist, Yang Kai had already placed a palm on her forehead, the vigorous energy in his palm pulsing like a sharp weapon.


Pursing her lips, Gu Pan quietly lay in front of Yang Kai, her body stiff as she stared at him with her clear eyes.


Yang Kai grinned maliciously, “Junior Sister, why did you suddenly attack me?”


Gu Pan said calmly, “Don’t you understand why I attacked you?”


Yang Kai said, “I must ask Junior Sister to enlighten me!”


A pained look flashed across Gu Pan’s eyes as she shook her head, “You’re no longer Senior Brother Yang.”


“If I’m not me, then who am I?” Yang Kai bent down, his sharp eyes staring around as if he wanted to eat someone.


Gu Pan turned her head, “There’s no point in talking, just kill me!”


Yang Kai chuckled, “Wouldn’t it be too easy to kill you?” Saying so, he suddenly reached out and took out a wooden box from his Space Ring.


With a wave of his hand, the World Force surged and he set up a barrier before opening the box.


The Insect rushed out of the box and was grabbed by Yang Kai.


Gu Pan, who was indifferent to death, was suddenly moved, “You really have been turned into ink, you even have black ink insect.”


“Oh?” Yang Kai looked at her in surprise, “Junior Sister actually recognizes Black Ink Insect, that makes things easier. Junior Sister, how about I show you the way?”


Closing her eyes, Gu Pan said lightly, “Although I’m not your opponent, i can still collapse my Small Universe.”


Yang Kai said in surprise, “I didn’t expect Junior Sister’s bones to be so tough! But it doesn’t matter, I like opponents with tough bones. I’ll crush your bones one by one later, Junior Sister must not cry!”


Gu Pan opened her eyes and glared at him, “If you want to kill me, then kill me. If you want to ink me, I advise you to give up. If you dare release the Black Ink Insect, I will immediately end myself!”


Yang Kai stared at her coldly, his killing intent surging as Gu Pan stared back at him fearlessly.


After a while, Yang Kai suddenly let go of her and put the Black Ink Insect into the box.


Gu Pan immediately jumped up and tried her best to distance herself from Yang Kai, staring at him suspiciously.


Yang Kai stood up and cupped his fists towards Gu Pan, “I’m sorry, Junior Sister, I really had to test you just now, please forgive me!”


Gu Pan stared at him and said, “What kind of scheme are you trying to play now? If you don’t kill me here, I’ll announce the identity of the Inked member to the entire Lang Ya Paradise. At that time, you’ll have no way out.”


Yang Kai grinned, “If I die, won’t your Senior Sister Qu become a widow?”


Gu Pan said calmly, “Senior Brother Yang is already dead, you’re not him!”


Yang Kai knew that no matter how he tried to explain himself now, it would be useless. Anyone who had some understanding of the Black Ink Clan, as long as they saw him holding the Black Ink Insect, they would definitely think he had been turned into ink.


When the World Force was activated, small universe's door opened and Yang Kai said, “Junior Sister can investigate the truth herself, I will explain it to Junior Sister later.”


Looking at Yang Kai suspiciously, Gu Pan's expression became serious, it really didn’t look like he had been turned into ink. Most importantly, if Yang Kai had really been turned into ink, his actions just now wouldn’t have made any sense. He could have simply put the Black Ink Insect into her Small Universe and let her be turned into ink.


But he didn’t!


Confused, Gu Pan sent her Divine Sense into his Small Universe to investigate.


She saw the tens of millions of living creatures in the Small Universe, the Small Stone Race that were like ants, the World Spring, and the large swathes of black smoke that had been sealed somewhere in the Small Universe…


After a long time, Gu Pan retracted her Divine Sense, the hostility on her face finally disappearing as she stared at Yang Kai in surprise, “Senior Brother, you…”


Yang Kai smiled at her, “Now you should believe me, right?”


Gu Pan was shocked, “Senior Brother, did your Small Universe turn from illusory to solid?”


Yang Kai’s eyes twitched, “This is what you saw?”


The focus was not right, Junior Sister!


Gu Pan asked, “Those big, thick ink-like objects, are they Black Ink Smoke?”


Yang Kai nodded.


Gu Pan was puzzled, “How did you seal the Black Ink Smoke? According to what I know, this thing is extremely corrosive. If it were to invade a cultivator’s Small Universe, it would quickly contaminate the entire Small Universe and eventually cause its master to become Inked. If you want to solve this problem, you can only cut off the contaminated Small Universe territory in the shortest time possible. If you hesitate for even a moment, you will be doomed.”


Yang Kai smiled, “Did you see that spring?”


Gu Pan nodded and suddenly reacted, “The Universe Four Pillars, World Spring?”


It wasn’t that she didn’t know about the World Spring. In fact, after advancing to the Sixth Order, as a Core Disciple, she had learned some secrets from her Master that ninety-nine percent of the people in the 3000 Worlds didn’t know, including the existence of the Black Ink Clan.


When her Master had told her about this matter, he had mentioned the Universe Four Pillars because they could be said to be the Black Ink Clan's nemesis.


However, although she had heard about it, this was the first time she had seen it, so she couldn’t react in time.


After understanding this point, Gu Pan’s entire body relaxed and she let out a long sigh, as if a heavy burden had been lifted from her shoulders, “In that case, Senior Brother really hasn’t been turned into ink!”


Yang Kai smiled, “How could I lie to you about something like this?”


Gu Pan was puzzled, “Since Senior Brother wasn’t turned into ink, why did you test me just now?”


The smile on Yang Kai’s face gradually faded as he looked at her with a heavy expression, “Junior Sister, what I’m about to tell you may be a bit serious, you should be mentally prepared.”


After staring blankly for a moment, Gu Pan sighed, “Did someone from my Lang Ya Paradise Inked?”


Yang Kai nodded.


“Elder Shi Zheng?” Gu Pan asked.


Yang Kai was surprised, “How did Junior Sister know?”


Gu Pan said sadly, “After I broke through to the Sixth Order, Master told me some things about the Black Ink Clan. At that time, he mentioned Black Ink Insect and Black Ink Smoke. Master said that these two originated from the same source, and Black Ink Smoke only appeared after Inked cultivators died. Senior Brother's Small Universe sealed a Black Ink Smoke, indicating that you had killed an Inked cultivator, and this time, you came to Lang Ya Paradise to see me and deliberately probed, indicating that this matter is related to my Lang Ya Paradise. Now, the only one who has any connection with Senior Brother is Elder Shi Zheng, who is in charge of the Star Boundary!”


“Junior Sister is beautiful and intelligent!” Yang Kai nodded, “It was indeed Elder Shi Zheng who was turned into ink. If that wasn't the case, I wouldn’t have tried to probe you, but in reality…”


Gu Pan suddenly raised her hand and interrupted him, “Senior Brother, before that, you should first investigate my Small Universe and confirm my identity.”


Yang Kai couldn’t help but laugh, “There’s no need. I saw Junior Sister’s reaction just now, but in fact, when you were preparing to escape, I already knew. The reason why I wanted to continue probing was just to be safe, so Junior Sister doesn’t blame me.”


“Even so, you still need to investigate. The power of the Black Ink Clan is extremely treacherous, and only by seeing it with our own eyes can we ensure our safety!” Saying so, Gu Pan opened her Small Universe's door.


Helpless, Yang Kai could only probe with his Divine Sense.


Gu Pan is a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage, her Small Universe's situation was different from Yang Kai’s. Her Small Universe hadn’t transformed from illusory to soild, so she didn’t have any substantial existence, but it was filled with rich World Strength.


A moment later, Yang Kai withdrew his Divine Sense and nodded towards her, “No problem.”


Gu Pan closed the Small Universe's door, she tidied up the broken table and asked, “Senior Brother, what exactly happened?”


Yang Kai sighed and explained how Shi Zheng had invited him to a private meeting, his expression extremely solemn.


She also didn’t expect that one of her family’s foreign envoys, an Inner Court Elder was actually an Inked cultivator. In fact, if it weren’t for Shi Zheng wanting to ink Yang Kai, his identity would never have been exposed.


World Spring was extremely rare, and Shi Zheng hadn’t expected Yang Kai to refine the World Spring, causing the Black Ink Insects to fail and the Ink Transformation to fail.


What was even more surprising was that Yang Kai had already broken through to the Big Dragon realm, so there was no way he could kill him.


On the other hand, in a place like High Heaven Territory, Yang Kai could use the power of the Star Boundary to transmit some information. By the time the dozens of High Rank masters rushed to the battlefield, Shi Zheng was already at his wit’s end and could only die!


Although he could leave his life behind and fight to the death, in a situation where he was alone, the end result wouldn’t be much different. In fact, he might even be captured alive, so he might as well just die.


“After discovering Shi Zheng's Inked identity, we speculated that Lang Ya Paradise probably had even more Inked cultivators, perhaps even a true Black Ink Clan member. The Seniors wanted to directly come to Lang Ya Paradise to investigate, but I felt that doing so would be too easy to alert the enemy, so I volunteered to be the vanguard and see if I could sneak into the Inked members territory and figure out who is a friend and foe. If I can find the place where the true Black Ink Clan is hiding, it would be best.”
