MARTIAL PEAK 4833


“Senior Brother Yang!” Qian Qian called out softly, a satisfied smile appearing on her face, “Thank you!”


Yang Kai didn’t know what she was thanking him for, but he also knew that she hadn’t really died just like that. After all, this was only a Samsara World, so if she was killed here, it would only be a cycle of reincarnation and wouldn’t affect the real her.


However, he had never imagined that Tao Lingwan would also come to this Samsara World and hide by his side all this time, using her own life to block a sword strike for him in a moment of crisis.


Feng Cheng Si and Yu Xiangdie both said that this Samsara World was a place where one’s heart was most important. The stronger one’s heart was, the more likely they would be able to achieve their long-cherished wish.


Moreover, everything that had happened here was directly imprinted on his heart.


Tao Lingwan’s reincarnation body was willing to block a sword for him here. In other words, even in the outside world, she would have the same choice.


Yang Kai felt a sharp pain in his heart as he slashed down with his Overturning Clouds Saver, cutting off the attacker’s arm and grabbing Qian Qian’s waist as he retreated.


When he looked down again, Qian Qian had already closed her eyes, a satisfied smile hanging from the corner of her mouth.


Outside, Feng Cheng Si, who seemed to be madly ordering his subordinates to kill, was stunned for a moment before softly muttering, “Junior Sister Tao?”


But soon, he seemed to understand something and smiled bitterly, “Has Master finally made a move? This is really like trying to steal a chicken only to end up losing the rice used to lure it!”


It was hard to imagine how his Master would react when he learned what had happened here, but he was certain his Master would not be too happy.


Qian Qian’s death did not give Yang Kai much time to breathe. Although the people from the City Lord’s Mansion were surprised by the decisiveness and boldness of a maid, that was all.


Without waiting for Yang Kai to put Qian Qian’s corpse down, they launched another fierce attack.


Yang Kai’s figure staggered, unable to vent his anger no matter how much he wanted to. He was in a sorry state as blood spurted from his body.


Meng Ru picked up a long sword from somewhere, gritted her teeth, and waved it at her enemy, fighting alongside Yang Kai.


She had never fought with anyone before, let alone killed anyone, but after practicing martial arts with Yang Kai for several months, she had gained some foundation and was in a much better situation than when she was first rescued by Yang Kai. At that time, even picking up a long sword was extremely difficult for her.


At this moment, her brandishing of her sword was somewhat threatening, and with her status as the Eldest Young Lady of the Meng Mansion and the Young City Lord’s fiancée, no one dared to do anything to her.


Qian Qian’s death seemed to have moved Feng Cheng Si a little. Sitting on his horse, he looked up at the sky and suddenly let out a sigh.


It was getting late and it was time to end all of this. The years of searching in the Samsara World had not discouraged him, and he had always wanted to complete his Master’s order. However, the moment he realized his true nature, he found himself somewhat exhausted. Everything he had done in this Samsara World was like a farce.


The Young City Lord’s graceful figure soared high into the sky like a nimble bird as he flew over everyone’s heads. Under the light of the fire, a sword light flashed towards Yang Kai.


When Yang Kai saw this sword, he knew how fierce it was. He wanted to resist, but he was powerless.


Just like Qian Qian’s fatal wound, the long sword had pierced through his chest, but Feng Cheng Si had obviously held back. This sword had missed his heart by an inch and had not caused him any fatal injuries.


However, he was already an arrow at the end of its flight and had countless wounds all over his body. Coupled with this sword strike, his body immediately fell backwards into Meng Ru’s arms.


As blood dripped from his mouth, Yang Kai shot a grateful look towards Feng Cheng Si, suddenly understanding how to break Qu Huachang’s heart barrier.


He also knew what Feng Cheng Si’s purpose for travelling all night was.


The latter tacitly nodded.


“Big Brother Yang!” Meng Ru’s voice was filled with sad cry as she covered the wound on his chest with her white hand, but no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t stop the blood from flowing out and soon her hand was dyed red.


Yang Kai grabbed her hand, “It’s useless, I failed to protect you, I’m sorry!”


Meng Ru’s tears fell like rain as she shook her head repeatedly, “I’ve implicated you.” She knew that with Yang Kai’s ability, even if he was surrounded by so many people, if he was alone, there was still a chance he could escape.


However, being dragged down by her, even escaping became an extravagant hope.


The surrounding pursuers had all gathered here, but none of them made a move immediately. They were both afraid of the tyrannical strength Yang Kai had displayed just now, but at the same time, they were also saddened by his heroism.


As Meng Ru cried, she suddenly smiled and gently caressed Yang Kai’s face, whispering, “I’ve implicated you in this life, but in the next life, let me protect you!”


As soon as she finished speaking, she suddenly picked up Yang Kai, turned around, and jumped off the cliff without hesitation.


Under the moonlight, the two figures were like birds jumping out of a cage, seeking eternal freedom.


Seeing this scene, Meng Deye, who was tied up on the ground, fainted.


Feng Cheng Si let out a long sigh, his heart filled with exhaustion. Finally, it was over.


As the wind howled around him, Yang Kai’s consciousness began to fade.


His figure continued to fall, and this cycle of reincarnation was finally over. He was waiting for Qu Huachang to break her heart barrier.


Fortunately, Qu Huachang didn’t make him wait long. Just as his consciousness was beginning to fade, he heard her voice, “Junior Brother?”


Yang Kai coughed up a mouthful of blood and smiled bitterly, “Senior Sister, you’re finally awake!”


Qu Huachang suddenly hugged him tightly, with a look of lingering fear on her face as she said in a trembling voice, “I knew you were alright!”


Before she went into seclusion, she had received news that Yang Kai had entered the Chaotic Dead Territory with the Giant Spiritual God. Yin Yang Heaven thought Yang Kai had died, but she was certain he wouldn’t die, so she had entered the Samsara Pavilion to set up a heart barrier for herself and wait for Yang Kai’s arrival.


Otherwise, under the pressure of the Sect’s higher up, she might not be able to withstand the pressure of the Elders.


“Senior Sister, time is of the essence, why don’t you tell me how many lifetimes I have to search for you?” Yang Kai wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth and quickly asked.


However, Qu Huachang didn’t seem to be in a hurry at all as she playfully winked at him, “Make a guess!”


Yang Kai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “It’s already so late.”


Qu Huachang snorted, “In any case, it won’t be easy for you, so just work hard, but what I can tell you is that this first life is the easiest and also the most difficult. The easy part is that Meng Ru’s heart was easily captured by you, which is why your progress is so smooth.”


Yang Kai humbly asked, “Where is the difficult part?”


Qu Huachang smiled, “Live and die together! I told myself that in my first life, you must live and die with me in order to break my heart barrier and awaken my memories.”


Yang Kai nodded.


It was precisely because Qu Huachang had set up this barrier in her heart that even though Yang Kai had captured Meng Ru’s heart, she had yet to recover her memories.


By the time the two of them jumped off this cliff, they had already reached a point where they could live and die together.


“However, the further I reincarnate, the more my memories will be sealed. Not only me, but you as well. If you reincarnate too many times, you may even lose yourself in the Samsara World, unable to find your true self, so Junior Brother, you must guard your heart,” Qu Huachang warned solemnly.


“I’ll remember,” Yang Kai nodded. Suddenly, he felt a sharp pain in his waist and couldn’t help feeling wronged, “Senior Sister, what are you doing?”


Qu Huachang grabbed a piece of flesh from his waist and spun it around.


Treating a dying man like this was simply too much.


“Hmph! Tell me, what’s going on with Junior Sister Tao?” Qu Huachang asked with a look of jealousy.


Yang Kai opened his mouth, not knowing how to explain.


Qu Huachang asked, “Junior Sister Tao, is that Tao Lingwan?”


Yang Kai shook his head, “En.” He didn’t understand why Tao Lingwan would come here and also enter the Samsara World where Qu Huachang was.


“Ah…” Qu Huachang suddenly sighed heavily, “Although I don’t know what happened between you and her, if you didn’t recognize her before, she would be finished.”


“Why?” Yang Kai frowned.


“You should more or less understand the mysteries of the Samsara Pavilion. Disciples who enter this place set up a barrier in their heart, so if they don’t break it, they will lose themselves in it and never be able to escape. The barrier I set up is for you to find me so that we can live and die together. You also know this, no matter what it is, there will always be a target, no matter how difficult it is.”


Yang Kai nodded.


“The heart barrier she has set up for herself is different,” Qu Huachang frowned, “This heart barrier is very likely to be able to recognize her without you knowing.”


It wasn’t difficult for Qu Huachang to make such a deduction. After all, Tao Lingwan had regained her memories after Yang Kai called her Junior Sister Tao.


“If I didn’t recognize her before, what would have happened?” Yang Kai asked.


“All of her memories are sealed in Qian Qian’s body. Qian Qian is dead, but you failed to awaken her, so she will never have a chance to wake up. This is the same for me.”


Yang Kai immediately broke out in a cold sweat as a lingering fear enveloped his entire body.


He couldn’t understand why Tao Lingwan would act like this. He didn’t know that this woman had also entered the Samsara Pavilion, and the reason he could recognize her was because Tao Lingwan’s personality was too similar to Qian Qian’s.


Previously, he had been so focused on breaking Qu Huachang’s heart barrier that he hadn’t paid much attention to it. But when Qian Qian stepped forward to block that sword strike for him, he suddenly remembered everything about Qian Qian.


“What is she doing?”


“Perhaps she wants to prove something,” Qu Huachang shook her head, “Women are often fools and unreasonable, but she succeeded, didn’t she?”


By sacrificing her life to block Yang Kai’s sword, even if it was only in the Samsara World, she would have to pay with her life.


No matter what Yang Kai thought before, in the future, there would always be a woman willing to give up her life for him.


“Will we see her again?” Yang Kai asked.


“It’s hard to say,” Qu Huachang shook her head, “Maybe, maybe not. Her heart barrier is different from mine. You’ve already recognized her once, and she has also shown her sincerity, so it’s meaningless to try again.”
