The Old Ancestor asked again, “Then whose Child Nest is the Royal Lord-level Black Ink Nest?”
Yang Kai shook his head, “I don’t know either. According to the Black Ink Clan, the Royal Lord-level Black Ink Nest is the highest grade Black Ink Nest.”
The Old Ancestor remained silent for a long time before finally saying, “There is always a source. If we can find this source, perhaps we can eliminate the entire Black Ink Clan.”
Yang Kai was shocked, “If that’s the case, doesn’t that mean there’s an even more powerful Black Ink Clan above the Royal Lord?” Since that source could give birth to a Royal Lord-level Black Ink Nest, it would naturally be guarded by an even stronger Black Ink Clan. How terrifying would that be?
The strength of the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord was already comparable to that of the Human Race’s Old Ancestor. If there really was an even stronger Black Ink Clan, what kind of power could they display?
“Perhaps,” The Old Ancestor also couldn’t explain, “Right now, our understanding of the Black Ink Clan is still too limited.”
As she spoke, she turned her head and saw that the three Black Ink Clan Territory Lords behind them were still chasing after them like maggots. Moreover, the distance between them didn’t increase in the slightest and instead became closer. A trace of killing intent flashed across the Old Ancestor’s eyes, “These three tails are a bit troublesome. If we don’t deal with them, I’m afraid we won’t be able to escape. Do you have any good ideas?”
Yang Kai decisively shook his head, “I can’t resist the power of a Territory Lord, but if it’s just escaping, it shouldn’t be a problem. This is my forte.”
The Old Ancestor glanced at him and suddenly understood, “Yes, you’re proficient in the Space Law, I forgot about that. En, I want to kill them!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai said, “Then I’ll help Old Ancestor!”
The Old Ancestor nodded, “We’ll act according to the situation later, don’t force it!”
“Yes!” Yang Kai replied firmly.
In front of them was a medium-sized floating continent that had been floating in the void for countless years. With the help of this floating continent’s concealment, the Old Ancestor’s figure flickered as she landed on the floating continent. In the next moment, the long sword in her hand began to connect with the void while the hand seals in her other hand constantly changed.
Yang Kai couldn’t understand what she was doing, but he knew that the Old Ancestor was probably setting up some kind of Array or trap.
In just a moment, everything was set up. The Old Ancestor reached out and bit her fingertip, releasing a drop of blood essence that was as red as a gemstone into the void, quickly restraining her aura.
Seeing this, Yang Kai also learned a thing or two, but his strength wasn’t as great as the Old Ancestor’s. Although the Old Ancestor was standing in front of him right now, if one didn’t use their naked eyes to observe her, they wouldn’t be able to perceive her at all. This showed just how exquisite her Qi Concealing Technique was. Of course, this was also the reason why she was so strong.
Just as she finished doing all of this, the three Black Ink Clan Territory Lords who were chasing after her flew across the floating continent.
The Human Race Old Ancestor’s figure was nowhere to be seen, but from the corner of his eye, he seemed to notice something strange on the floating continent.
Mie Qiong Territory Lord, who was leading the group, turned his head and saw the old ancestor standing alone on the floating continent, her expression solemn as she pointed her sword towards the three Territory Lords.
Mie Qiong’s hair stood on end. Although he didn’t know what the Human Race’s Old Ancestor wanted to do, he could tell from her posture that she was up to no good.
At the same time, Qing Lei and another Territory Lord Yang Kai didn’t recognize also noticed this anomaly.
The three Black Ink Clan Territory Lords had never imagined that the Human Race’s Old Ancestor, who they had been chasing all this time, would actually stop here.
They had always thought that the Human Race’s Old Ancestor was seriously injured and was unable to contend with the three of them, which was why they had chased after her so aggressively. The three Territory Lords had all been fantasizing about killing the Human Race’s Old Ancestor. After all, killing the Human Race’s Old Ancestor was a rare opportunity, and if they really accomplish this, it would be a great contribution.
It wasn’t until this moment that the three Territory Lords realized that things were different from what they had imagined. The Human Race’s Old Ancestor wasn’t completely helpless.
Before they could react, the Old Ancestor’s body erupted with a violent World Force and in the next moment, a sword light slashed out.
As the floating continent collapsed into dust, a giant Yin Yang Fish pattern appeared in the void and enveloped the three Black Ink Clan Territory Lord.
The Yin Yang Fish was filled with endless killing intent, and as the Yin Yang force rotated, it seemed to transform into a millstone that crushed everything in its path. The three Territory Lords of the Black Ink Clan who were enveloped by it immediately began to bleed profusely as they howled in pain.
With a thick burst of Ink Force, the three Black Ink Clan Territory Lords naturally wouldn’t sit back and wait for death, each of them releasing a powerful force in an attempt to break through the Yin-Yang barrier.
The Old Ancestor attacked with her sword.
No one knew when she had attacked, the three Black Ink Clan Territory Lords didn’t notice, not even Yang Kai, who was standing next to her.
It wasn’t until a cold light flashed in front of the Territory Lord that Yang Kai didn’t recognize and his giant head flew into the sky that Yang Kai woke up.
The might of this sword had decapitated a Territory Lord.
The Old Ancestor had already charged forward, so how could she remain uninvolved? His figure flickered as he attacked Mie Qiong.
At this moment, Mie Qiong was struggling to resist the Yin Yang Force’s attack, and in a short period of time, this powerful Black Ink Clan Territory Lord was covered in blood and his aura had greatly weakened.
When Yang Kai attacked with his spear, Mie Qiong was unable to react and was stabbed in the chest by Yang Kai’s spear. Although this wound was not light, it did not take Mie Qiong’s life.
On the other side, after the Old Ancestor killed one of the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lords, she slashed her sword towards Qing Lei.
Qing Lei’s strength wasn’t weak, so he was able to dodge in a hurry and managed to escape. However, the sword light had cut off one of his arms, causing black blood to spurt out from his wound as he staggered back while howling in pain.
Suddenly, the cry was cut off as the Old Ancestor slashed down again. This time, Qing Lei was unable to resist and his huge body was directly cut in half.
At the same time Qing Lei was struck, Yang Kai was also sent flying by Mie Qiong’s fist, many of his bones broken.
Struggling to stabilize himself, Yang Kai gritted his teeth and pushed his Space Law, wrapping himself in the spear light and thrusting forward.
Mie Qiong roared and ruthlessly struck out with his palm, causing Yang Kai to feel as if he had been struck by lightning.
At this moment, a look of horror flashed across Mie Qiong’s eyes, and Yang Kai also saw the Old Ancestor’s figure appear behind Mie Qiong like a ghost, the sword in her hand transforming into a sky full of sword lights as she slashed towards Mie Qiong.
As the brilliant sword light dispersed, Mie Qiong’s giant body froze in place before suddenly shattering into countless pieces that scattered in all directions.
Yang Kai’s face was covered in blood as he stared around blankly.
Dead! Three Territory Lords from the Black Ink Clan had died in less than ten breaths of time. Although he had helped, he had not been of much use. He had only been able to restrain Mie Qiong for a moment and had even been knocked back by his counterattack.
It could be said that these three Black Ink Clan Territory Lords had all died at the hands of the Old Ancestor.
To Yang Kai, a powerful Territory Lord was like a three-year-old child in front of the Old Ancestor, unable to fight back or resist, so they were easily killed.
Yang Kai had truly witnessed the strength of the Human Race’s Old Ancestor.
However, the situation in front of him puzzled him greatly and he turned to look at the Old Ancestor.
The Old Ancestor put away her long sword and turned to look at him, asking worriedly, “How are your injuries?”
Yang Kai coughed lightly and shook his head, “It’s nothing serious, I can recover after a few days of rest, but Old Ancestor… I don’t quite understand.”
The Old Ancestor said lightly, “You want to ask, since I can kill them, why am I being chased by them?”
Yang Kai nodded.
The Old Ancestor replied, “Because I only have this much strength left. If I kill them, I won’t be able to return, but since I’ve met you, I’ll have to rely on you to bring me back.”
Yang Kai’s expression became serious, “Naturally.”
The Old Ancestor clicked her tongue and curled her lips, “How annoying, I’m going to become a child again.”
Yang Kai was confused, “What?”
As soon as he finished speaking, the Old Ancestor suddenly spat out a mouthful of blood and her aura rapidly weakened like a deflated balloon.
Only then did Yang Kai suddenly wake up. The Old Ancestor had been injured, and her injuries were not light.
As the Old Ancestor’s aura weakened, she also began to shrink.
Originally, the Ancestor looked like a young girl in her early twenties, but under Yang Kai’s dumbfounded gaze, this young girl had transformed into a seven or eight years old child in less than twenty breaths.
Her white clothes also changed slightly as her figure shrank, sticking close to her body. It was obvious that this was not an ordinary piece of clothing, but a specially refined artifact.
Looking at the little girl the Old Ancestor had transformed into, Yang Kai’s eyes almost popped out, “You…”
What shocked him was not just the changes in the Old Ancestor’s body, but also the appearance of this little girl.
It was the little girl who had been pestering him in Yin Yang Pass Marketplace! It was this little girl who had given him an ancient coin.
When he first met the Old Ancestor, Yang Kai felt that she was a bit familiar, but he couldn’t remember where he had seen her before.
Now he finally understood that the Old Ancestor’s appearance was somewhat similar to that little girl’s, but he had never imagined that the Old Ancestor herself was actually that little girl.
Many things he had encountered in the Marketplace that he didn’t understand suddenly came to a realization.
Previously, he had been wondering why the old ancestor of Yin Yang Pass hadn’t summoned him or given him any instructions when it was so important to find the Artifact Refiners in the depths of the Black Ink Clan.
It wasn’t that the Old Ancestor hadn’t summoned him, but rather that the Old Ancestor had always been by his side.
The Ancient Coint's origins also made sense. How could a little girl who had never cultivated before steal such a precious thing from the Old Ancestor? The Old Ancestor had obviously given it to him personally.
At this moment, Yang Kai couldn’t see any traces of cultivation on this little girl in front of him. She was like an ordinary person who had never cultivated before. If Yang Kai hadn’t witnessed her transformation with his own eyes, he wouldn’t have believed that this person in front of him was actually the Yin Yang Pass Old Ancestor!
What the hell? Yang Kai was a bit confused.
“Don’t just stand there, hurry up and run. Who knows, there might be some Black Ink Clan people coming here to investigate.” The Old Ancestor’s face was pale and there were traces of blood at the corner of her mouth. Her originally bright eyes were a bit gray and dull, as if she was dozing off, her eyelids drooping.
