MARTIAL PEAK 5188


Yang Kai turned to the crowd and said, “Did you hear that? Split up and take turns.”


After receiving their orders, the first group of twenty or so people, under the leadership of Feng Ying, flew towards the central army.


In fact, leaving a Brand on the Expelling Black Ink Battleship was obviously more convenient to do in Wind and Cloud Pass. At that time, when the thirty thousand strong army gathered together, all Xiang Shan and Liu Zhiping has to do was take out the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, and everyone would take turns.


However, when the forces from the various mountain passes gathered, it was when the two armies of the Great Evolution were formed. After the two armies were formed, they would immediately rush out of Wind and Cloud Pass to fight the Black Ink Clan. There was simply no time for such things.


After defeating the Black Ink Clan, the Great Evolution Army immediately set out. Xiang Shan was well aware of the importance of speed in war, so he naturally wouldn’t waste time trying to leave a Soul Brand on the Expelling Black Ink Battleship.


Therefore, this kind of thing could only be done on the road.


It was a bit troublesome, but the good thing was that they wouldn’t waste any time. As long as they allocated their manpower appropriately, they wouldn’t delay the pace of the march.


Half a day later, Feng Ying and the others returned and exchanged for another batch of Dawn Squad members to leave their mark on the two Expelling Black Ink Battleship.


Half a day later, the second batch of team members also returned, leaving behind their Soul Brands on the two Expelling Black Ink Battleship.


The journey was quite boring, so everyone quietly cultivated.


Four days after the army left Wind and Cloud Pass, Yang Kai, who was meditating on the deck, suddenly noticed something and turned to look in a certain direction.


A stream of light flew over from the rear of the army at an extremely fast speed. This stream of light was so fast that it had already surpassed the scope of an ordinary cultivator’s understanding, even surpassing his Space Teleportation.


The direction the stream of light was moving towards should be the Central Army, but it seemed to have noticed Yang Kai’s gaze and suddenly changed directions, landing on Breaking Dawn.


The stream of light dispersed, revealing a graceful figure.


Yang Kai was stunned and quickly stood up, “Greetings, Old Ancestor!”


On the deck, there were other team members controlling the various Spirit Arrays. Originally, they were wondering who this young girl who had suddenly appeared was and what she was doing here, but when they heard Yang Kai calling out to her, all of them turned pale with fright and quickly stood up to greet her.


This uninvited guest was actually the Old Ancestor!


Although they had long heard that the old ancestor of Yin Yang Pass was a woman, they had never seen her with their own eyes. Only now did they realize that this old ancestor was completely different from what they had imagined, a beautiful young woman.


Speaking of which, perhaps it was because women’s cultivation was inferior to men’s, or perhaps it was because the higher one’s cultivation was, the fewer women there were, especially those at the Old Ancestor’s level. There were more than a hundred Human Race Old Ancestors, but only a dozen or so female Old Ancestors, while the rest were all male.


In front of the Old Ancestor, even the unruly Dawn Squad disciples who had made great contributions to the various battlefields were respectful, not even daring to breathe loudly.


The Old Ancestor’s pair of beautiful eyes sized up Yang Kai for a moment before a light flashed across her eyes as she said in surprise, “Your cultivation has improved quite quickly.”


With her eyesight, she could naturally tell that compared to more than two hundred years ago, Yang Kai’s strength had greatly increased. This was not a speed that an ordinary Seventh Order cultivator could increase, but considering the various wonders Yang Kai's Small Universe possessed, it made sense.


Speaking of which, she was quite looking forward to how many years it would take for Yang Kai to break through to the Eighth Order. On the Expelling Black Ink Battlefield, although the Seventh Order Open Heaven could hold its own, it was still not enough to become a cornerstone.


“Thanks to Old Ancestor’s blessings, I’ve been cultivating in seclusion for the past few years,” Yang Kai replied respectfully.


The Old Ancestor nodded slightly, “It’s not a bad thing to increase one’s cultivation quickly, having solid foundation is enough.”


“Disciple understands,” Yang Kai nodded seriously.


The Old Ancestor continued, “The reason I asked you to come with me this time is because your Small Universe is useful for healing my injuries. In order to recover Great Evolution this time, I will need to fight a few battles with the Royal Lord. When the time comes, I must borrow your strength.”


Yang Kai nodded, “That’s not a problem. If Senior needs anything, Disciple will do his best.”


The Old Ancestor patted Yang Kai’s shoulder and smiled innocently, “What senior? My cultivation is just a bit higher than yours.”


Yang Kai couldn’t help letting out a muffled groan as he was patted, knowing that he had said something wrong. It seemed that no matter how high one’s cultivation was, women always cared about age.


Quickly changing the subject, he asked, “Right, Old Ancestor, how long will it take us to reach Great Evolution Pass?”


The Old Ancestor retracted her small hand and looked towards the direction the army was heading towards, “The distance between the mountain passes is very far. With the current speed of the army, it will take at least a year or two to arrive at the Great Evolution War Zone.”


Yang Kai couldn’t help clicking his tongue, “So long?”


The Old Ancestor smiled, “If not, why do you think there are no large-scale reinforcements between the mountain passes? It’s because the distance between each mountain pass is too great, and each mountain pass has to face its own enemy. If the reinforcements from this side were to leave, if an enemy were to attack, they wouldn’t be able to withdraw their forces in such a short time, that would be terrible. If they were close enough, the situation on the Ink Battlefield wouldn’t be so tense.”


Yang Kai nodded in understanding before asking, “How is the situation of the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord at Wind and Cloud Pass?”


This Old Ancestor who had joined forces with Wind and Cloud Pass’ Old Ancestor to fight against the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord quickly left the battlefield and chased after him.


In a battle of such a high level, even an Eighth Order cultivator would be in great danger.


However, now that she had returned, it was obvious that the battle had ended. Looking at her expression, Yang Kai estimated that she was not injured.


Since this person in front of him wasn’t injured, the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord was likely going to suffer.


Sure enough, the Old Ancestor said, “The Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord is seriously injured, he won’t be able to recover for a few hundred years. However, Senior Brother Zhang and I don’t want to push him too far, in case he becomes desperate and decides to let him go.”


The Senior Brother Zhang she was referring to should be the Old Ancestor of Wind and Cloud Pass.


With two against one, they had the advantage, but if they wanted to kill the Royal Lord, they would have to pay a huge price, so whether it was the one in front of them or the one in Wind and Cloud Pass, they both knew when to stop.


During the battle at Wind and Cloud Pass, the Black Ink Clan’s army had suffered heavy losses, nearly sixty to seventy percent of their Territory Lords had been killed, and their Royal Lord had been severely wounded. The Black Ink Clan in that war zone had been completely crippled, so it was likely that the lives of Wind and Cloud Pass’ soldiers would be much better in the future.


This was also the reason why Wind and Cloud Pass had been able to mobilize fifteen thousand troops to help Great Evolution gather the forces of the East and West army.


Even if Azure Void Pass wasn’t as good as Wind and Cloud Pass, it shouldn’t be much worse.


The forces on the other side were equal to Wind and Cloud Pass’s forces, but the only one they lacked was an Old Ancestor, so they couldn’t do anything to the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord.


Seeing their Team Leader chatting with the Old Ancestor, the members of Dawn Squad were all amazed.


Although each mountain pass had at least one Old Ancestor guarding it, those at the Old Ancestor’s level were rarely seen, and ordinary people would never be able to see them. Even Blue Sky Pass’ Old Ancestor, the Dawn Squad had only seen their Old Ancestor’s prestige from afar and had never come into close contact with him.


But now, there was an Old Ancestor above Dawn Battleship, chatting with Yang Kai.


Among the Seventh Order Open Heaven cultivator, he was probably the only one with such an honor.


As they were talking, the Old Ancestor suddenly raised her head and looked towards the direction the army was heading towards, raising her brow, “There are still people who came here to die? Interesting.”


Finished speaking, the Old Ancestor didn’t stop and soared into the sky. From afar, a voice rang out in Yang Kai’s ears, “Prepare for battle!”


Yang Kai was stunned for a moment before quickly reacting and shouting, “Prepare for battle!”


Under this command, everyone hurriedly took action, and Breaking Dawn turned into a streak of light and flew forward.


Inside the Central Army, on the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, Xiang Shan was listening to the scouts of the vanguard.


As the army advanced, they would naturally arrange for scouts to scout the situation ahead. It is said that they would be heading straight for Great Evolution Pass. Because it was a long journey, the situation of encountering the Black Ink Clan was very small, but they had to be prepared for all contingencies.


Just a moment ago, a scout from the front came to report that he had discovered the traces of a Black Ink Clan army.


According to the scouts’ observations, the Black Ink Clan army had a total of three hundred thousand people, with about ten Territory Lords among them heading straight for Wind and Cloud Pass.


According to the speed and direction of the two armies’ advance, they should meet in the void after an hour.


The scout had just finished reporting when the Old Ancestor arrived at the Expelling Black Ink Battleship. Xiang Shan and the others stood up to greet her.


After the Old Ancestor sat down, Xiang Shan said, “The scouts ahead reported that there is an army of about three hundred thousand Black Ink Clan soldiers approaching us.”


Hearing this, the Old Ancestor nodded, “I’ve noticed, they must be reinforcements from Great Evolution Pass.”


During the thirty thousand years the Black Ink Clan had occupied Great Evolution Pass, they would occasionally send reinforcements to assist Wind Cloud Pass and Azure Void Pass’ Black Ink Clan. Although they were far away and the efficiency of their assistance wasn’t high, the Black Ink Clan had never stopped doing so.


It was also because of the support of the Great Evolution War Zone’s Black Ink Clan that Wind and Cloud Pass and Azure Void Pass had to face pressure that exceeded the other passes.


This Black Ink Clan army had set out from the Great Evolution War Zone nearly two years ago and was preparing to assist the Black Ink Clan in attacking Wind and Cloud War Zone. They planned to arrive in a few days. At that time, if these three hundred thousand troops were to be deployed on the battlefield, it would definitely put a great deal of pressure on Wind and Cloud Pass, not to mention the dozen or so Territory Lords.


Unfortunately, before they could reach the battlefield, the battle at Wind and Cloud Pass had come to an end. It was extremely inconvenient to send messages through the void, so this group of reinforcements had no way of knowing what had happened at Wind and Cloud Pass and were still proceeding according to their original plan.


As both sides rushed towards each other, it was naturally inevitable that they would encounter each other.


“What should we do? Please tell us!” Xiang Shan asked.


The Old Ancestor smiled and said, “Marching and fighting isn’t my forte. This trip will be based on your and Liu Zhiping’s will, just treat me as a soldier with a higher cultivation. If you have any ideas, don’t ask me.”


The existence of most of the Old Ancestors was a form of deterrence, commanding the armies to fight and devising various strategies is the job of the Regiment Commander and Garrison Chief. Many of the Old Ancestors weren’t proficient in these things, so rashly intervening might not necessarily be better than an Eighth Order.


Without a doubt, this Yin Yang Pass master knew her own limits. Letting him go like this had greatly reduced Xiang Shan’s constraints and allowed him to display his full strength.
