However, this guy was very cunning, so it was hard to say if she was intentionally acting weak. Yang Kai didn’t show any intention of letting her go, instead silently activating the Purification Light.
After a short while, his left and right hands lit up with different colored lights, and the two lights merged together, transforming into a dazzling white light that completely enveloped the two people who were together.
The nearly unconscious Black Ink Disciple suddenly showed a look of pain as she let out a cough from her throat and instinctively struggled, but with Yang Kai restraining her, no matter how she struggled, it was useless.
A crackling sound rang out as a black Qi began to dissipate from her body. The pain on the Black Ink Disciple’s face gradually disappeared as her expression became gentle.
After a while, when there was no more black Qi, Yang Kai released her, finally confirming that this woman really had no strength to resist.
Exhausted, Yang Kai fell to the ground and lay there, breathing heavily. Although the woman next to him was unconscious, her brow was still furrowed as if she was in a nightmare.
After a long time, Yang Kai struggled to his feet, stuffed some restorative pills into his mouth, and quietly refined them.
The woman still showed no signs of waking up. A few days ago, she had been constantly pursued by Yang Kai and had suffered many injuries. Afterwards, she had hidden in the shadows to launch a sneak attack on the Eighth Order Open Heaven, using a powerful Secret Technique to add fuel to the fire. In the end, she had been beaten up by Yang Kai. Although she had regained her consciousness, whether it was her own consumption or her injuries, they were not light.
Yang Kai came to her side and sat down cross-legged, stuffing some pills into her mouth and helping her swallow them before activating his Towering Evergreen Secret Technique, enshrouding her with rich vitality.
Fortunately, there was no sign of the Black Ink Clan here, otherwise, another great battle would have erupted.
After sleeping for a full day, the woman’s long eyelashes suddenly trembled and she suddenly opened her eyes. Her petite body shot up from the ground and she stretched out her hand to grasp the longbow in her hand.
Very skillfully pulling the bowstring, a golden light point towards Yang Kai, ready to strike.
Yang Kai still sat in place, not moving, not even showing any signs of vigilance. He just looked at her with pity and gently said, “Don’t be nervous.”
The woman stared at him for a moment, her expression changing slightly as she finally remembered what had happened before she fell unconscious. She couldn’t help frowning as she slowly put down the longbow in her hand and asked in shock, “Senior Brother saved me?”
Yang Kai smiled and nodded.
Even though she had personally experienced it and remembered it clearly, the woman still couldn’t believe it, “How did Senior Brother save me? What kind of method was that?”
Since ancient times, after being contaminated by the Ink Force and transformed into Black Ink Disciples, the Human Race no longer had any means to restore order. Once they became Black Ink Disciples, they would stand on the opposite side of the Human Race and could only fight to the death on the battlefield.
Many clansmen did not die in the hands of the Black Ink Clan's hands, but had instead been transformed into the Black Ink Clan’s most powerful weapon, which was used to deal with the Human Race.
But now, what had happened to her undoubtedly showed that the clansmen had grasped a mysterious method to save Black Ink Disciple!
No matter how good her temperament was, she could not hide her shock.
Yang Kai smiled, “I have a Secret Technique that can purify and disperse the Ink Force.”
The woman pondered for a moment before asking, “That white light?”
The woman suddenly understood, “No wonder!”
“What?” Yang Kai looked at him in confusion.
The woman said, “In the battle ten years ago, there was something that made the Black Ink Clan feel strange. At that time, the number of Black Ink Disciples the Black Ink Clan had converted was too small, and it seemed that at some point in time, not a single Black Ink Disciple had been born. The Black Ink Clan had always suspected that the clansmen had some kind of method to suppress the Ink Force, but they had never been able to figure it out. Now that I think about it, it must be the Secret Technique Senior Brother used.”
Yang Kai nodded, “Yes.”
The woman’s expression became solemn as she put away her bow and cupped her fists, “Bai Yi thanks Senior Brother for saving my life.”
Only then did Yang Kai learn the other party’s name, so he stood up and bowed, “It’s too serious. En, my name is Yang Kai. Also, I’m not a Senior Brother, I’ve only recently broken through to the Seventh Order, in terms of seniority, perhaps you are still my Martial Aunt.”
Bai Yi shook her head and said, “Since you’re a Seventh Order and your strength is stronger than mine, I should address you Senior Brother and you should address me Junior Sister.” Saying so, Bai Yi thought about the conflict she had with Yang Kai and asked suspiciously, “Senior Brother only broke through to the Seventh Order?”
Yang Kai nodded, “I broke through after the last war between the two races.”
Bai Yi couldn’t help being moved. He had only just broken through to the Seventh Order, yet he had already chased her to the point where she had no way to escape. Just how strong was his foundation? If Yang Kai were to cultivate for a few more years, how could she be his opponent? She was also a Heaven’s Chosen, so she felt that she wasn’t inferior to other Seventh Order Open Heaven masters. Moreover, once she was able to put some distance between them and display her strength, ordinary Seventh Order cultivators would not be able to approach her.
However, after being entangled with Yang Kai, she realized that there was always someone stronger.
“Is… is Junior Sister Bai alright?” Yang Kai asked in concern. Since she insisted on addressing him as Senior Brother, Yang Kai simply let her be.
Only then did Bai Yi have the time to examine herself. After a moment, she said, “I’m fine, but I’ve consumed a lot of energy and need to recover. Has Senior Brother helped me heal?”
She remembered her own injuries. Although she would recover from her coma, it was impossible for her to recover so quickly. Now that she was fine, it meant that someone had helped her heal while she was unconscious, and this person could only be Yang Kai.
As she spoke, she touched her forehead and felt a wave of dizziness wash over her. Yang Kai’s headbutt that was enough to destroy a mountain was still fresh in her mind. After living for so many years, this was the first time she had been treated like this.
Yang Kai laughed dryly, “I had no choice but to do so, Junior Sister, please forgive me.”
Bai Yi nodded, “I understand. Senior Brother wanted to save me, not kill me, otherwise he wouldn’t have done such a thing. It’s just that at that time, I… I’m sorry for causing trouble for Senior Brother!”
Saying so, her face filled with shame.
Yang Kai sighed, “After being corroded by the Ink Force, your priority is for the Black Ink Clan, it’s not your fault. En, since Junior Sister is fine, let’s go back. There’s a base nearby, Junior Sister should know about it.”
“I know…” Bai Yi nodded, but she showed no intention of moving, a look of hesitation appearing on her face.
Yang Kai looked at her in confusion, “Is Junior Sister still feeling unwell?”
Bai Yi shook her head and suddenly stared at him, asking, “Senior Brother, do you want to kill a Territory Lord?”
Yang Kai raised his brow, “What does Junior Sister mean?”
Bai Yi said, “Normally, you and I are only at the Seventh Order, so we’re definitely not a match for the Territory Lord. However, right now we have a great opportunity. If we act appropriately, we have a great chance of succeeding!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai immediately understood, “Is Junior Sister referring to the Territory Lord who escaped before?”
Bai Yi nodded, “That’s the Chasing Wind Territory Lord, one of the Territory Lords under the Evil Royal Lord. I was his Black Ink Disciple before. He fought a great battle with Garrison Chief Xu Boliang, and although he managed to escape with my help, his vitality has been greatly damaged, so he should be recuperating in his lair right now. If you and I were to launch a sneak attack now, there is a high chance we could succeed.”
Yang Kai narrowed his eyes slightly, but there was a sharp glint in them, “Junior Sister, are you sure? Since that Chasing Wind Territory Lord is healing his injuries, there must be some powerful masters guarding him. You and I are only two people, so although our strength is extraordinary, what are the chances of us succeeding?”
Bai Yi shook her head and said, “Senior Brother may not know, but the Black Ink Clan isn’t a united force, and there are many dirty tricks hidden up their sleeves. If the Low Rank Black Ink Clan obtains the opportunity to swallow the power of the High Rank Black Ink Clan, they will be able to greatly enhance their strength. This time, the Chasing Wind Territory Lord suffered a serious injury, so no matter what, he will not let the other Territory Lords or his Feudal Lord subordinates know about this. Otherwise, if this news were to leak out, it is difficult to guarantee that the other Territory Lords wouldn’t have any ideas about him. Even the Feudal Lord under his command might take the risk to act. Once they swallow his power, they will be able to promote to Territory Lord.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai nodded, “I have indeed heard of such a thing.”
Yang Kai had lived in the Black Ink Clan’s hinterland for two years, so naturally he had heard about these things. At that time, Angry Flame had shown him more than once that he wanted to swallow a Feudal Lord, but unfortunately, he had no opportunity to do so, so he could only bring Yang Kai around to compete and earn black ink coins.
Moreover, this kind of information wasn’t some kind of secret, and all of the various Human Race passes had information about it.
Bai Yi replied, “If it was just an ordinary injury, it wouldn’t have been a big deal. Those Feudal Lords naturally wouldn’t dare to have any ill intentions, but from the looks of it, Chasing Wind Territory Lord is seriously injured, so he must conceal this information. As for the place he is currently healing, at most he will have a few trusted subordinates guarding it.”
“Do you know where he will go to heal himself?”
Bai Yi nodded, “I roughly know. After all, I’m his Black Ink Disciple, and I’ve come into contact with many of his secrets.”
Yang Kai immediately became conflicted.
A heavily wounded Territory Lord was quite tempting to him. If he could take advantage of this opportunity to kill him, it would be enough to strike a heavy blow to the Black Ink Clan’s high-end forces in this war zone, greatly benefiting the Human Race.
But if he really did that, the risk he would have to bear would not be small.
After all, this was a Territory Lord, and a starving camel was still bigger than a horse. The counterattack before his death was not to be underestimated, not to mention that the Territory Lord definitely had someone loyal to protect him.
Even if he succeeded, if he wanted to escape, he would have to fight a great battle.
“Senior Brother, we can’t afford to lose this opportunity. If we wait any longer, Chasing Wind Territory Lord’s injuries will recover and it will be even more difficult to act,” Seeing Yang Kai hesitate, Bai Yi quickly advised.
Yang Kai glanced at her and finally made up his mind. Nodding, he said, “Fine, I’ll join forces with Junior Sister to kill the enemy.”
Seeing him finally agree, Bai Yi smiled and said, “I won’t disappoint Senior Brother.”
“But before that, we need to recover for a while,” Yang Kai said.
He himself didn’t have much to recover, but Bai Yi’s aura was clearly somewhat weak at this moment, so she really needed to restore herself. Otherwise, how could she have the strength to launch a sneak attack on the Chasing Wind Territory Lord?
Immediately, the two of them began to recover.
