The Great Evolution East-West Army set out from their Universe World camp, and headed towards Great Evolution Pass. If everything went smoothly, they would arrive at Great Evolution Pass in a month.
After ten days of rest and reorganization, the army could only be said to have gained the ability to fight and move again, and had yet to fully recover. The wounded soldiers were recuperating in their respective Battleships while the Array Masters and Artifact Refiners were busy repairing damaged artifacts and Spirit Arrays.
On Dawn’s side, Wen Cheng Jing and Zhang Yang, who had just arrived, quickly became familiar with the other team members and were assigned tasks and duties by Feng Ying. On the other hand, Blood Crow stood alone on the deck, seemingly out of place with everyone else.
Yang Kai didn’t care about him. It was impossible to expect Blood Crow to be integrated with others. This guy’s background, past, and personality were destined to be impossible for him to do it.
However, the current Blood Crow was different from before, Yang Kai could feel this.
In the past, Blood Crow had been sent to the Ink Battlefield to fight with the Black Ink Clan because he had been forced by the circumstances, but now, the reason he was fighting with the Black Ink Clan was not only because of the circumstances but also because of his Dao Heart.
Even if he had been saved by his original team, Blood Crow might not be grateful and would only think that the actions of those who had died were too foolish, but in the end, saving his life was still saving his life. He could not refuse to repay this debt.
This was the Blood Crow’s Dao Heart!
Inside the cabin, Yang Kai finished examining Ning Qizhi’s body and said, “Rest well for the next few days. If there are any more battles, don’t interfere.”
In the previous battle, Qi Taichu had fallen while Ning Qizhi had been severely wounded. Because his injury were from his Small Universe, if Yang Kai hadn’t come to his rescue in time, his Small Universe would have been destroyed.
If such a situation really occurred, Qi Taichu would not be the only one to fall.
Although he had managed to survive, Ning Qizhi’s Small Universe had also been shattered.
Fortunately, Yang Kai had the Profound Female Spirit Fruit.
Back at Blue Sky Pass, Yang Kai had deliberately transplanted some Profound Female Fruit Tree and a large number of herbs needed to refine Expelling Black Ink Pill into his Small Universe.
All of these things were placed in the Medicine Garden, and the Medicine Garden was managed by the two small Wood Spirits, Mu Zhu and Mu Lu, so no matter what kind of herbs they were, they would grow well.
In addition, the flow of time in his Small Universe was different from the outside world. Now that a thousand years had passed inside, the Profound Female Fruit Tree that had been transplanted here a few years ago had already blossomed and bore fruit. Yang Kai took ninety percent of it and handed it over to the soldiers, leaving only ten percent for himself in case of emergencies.
The Profound Female Spirit Fruit was the only Spirit Fruit the Human Race had discovered that could repair the Small Universe.
Because of this, Ning Qizhi was able to survive. Although the Profound Female Spirit Fruit’s effects were amazing, it still required time to repair. Before his Small Universe fully recovered, Ning Qizhi could not act rashly, otherwise his injuries would only worsen.
Listening to Yang Kai’s words, Ning Qizhi nodded repeatedly but didn’t show much joy.
Qi Taichu had fallen. In the whole Dawn Squad, Qi Taichu, Ning Qizhi, and Shen Ao were all Black Ink Disciple that Yang Kai had brought back from the Black Ink Clan's hinterland. The three of them had the best relationship with each other and had fought side by side countless times on the battlefield.
But now, no one could compete with him and Shen Ao in drinking and discussing the Dao.
Yang Kai gently patted him on the shoulder before turning around and walking out. He immediately saw a lone figure on the deck, Blood Crow could be describe as miserable and desolate.
Ignoring him, Yang Kai began meditating in his room.
Pushing open the door, Yang Kai blinked a few times before quietly closing it again.
A voice called out, “Come in and talk!”
Yang Kai clicked his tongue and helplessly pushed open the door again before walking in and bowing to the figure sitting on his bed, “Old Ancestor!”
No one knew when Smiles Old Ancestor had arrived at Breaking Dawn, but with her Ninth Order cultivation, if she wanted to hide her whereabouts, no one on Breaking Dawn would be able to detect her.
Smiles Old Ancestor glanced at him from the corner of her eyes and teased, “What’s wrong? Why did you deliberately left the door open? Are you afraid of being criticized?”
Yang Kai replied firmly, “No, no!”
Smiles Old Ancestor snorted lightly.
Yang Kai asked with concern, “How are Old Ancestor’s injuries? Do you need to find a place to heal?”
Hearing this, Smiles Old Ancestor waved her hand and said, “There’s no need to heal for the time being. We’ll talk about it after we settle down. The injuries from the previous battle weren’t serious.”
Yang Kai asked curiously, “Does Old Ancestor have any advice?”
The Old Ancestor suddenly coming to his place was obviously not to chat with him.
Smiles Old Ancestor didn’t stand on ceremony with him and stretched out her hand, “Give me some Space Spirit Bead!”
After all, Smiles Old Ancestor had lived in Yang Kai's Small Universe for many years and had often chatted with him. Yang Kai had also talked about his Space Dao and wanted to see if the Old Ancestor could give him some pointers.
The Old Ancestor naturally knew about the Space Spirit Bead.
Yang Kai didn’t ask what she wanted the Space Spirit Bead for and immediately took out a few sets and handed them over.
The Old Ancestor took it and quickly left.
Yang Kai only blinked a few times before the Old Ancestor’s figure disappeared from the room. The only thing he could hear was the Old Ancestor’s voice, “Tell your people to relax, there won’t be any more battles this time!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai was stunned.
Everyone had thought that the Great Evolution Army would begin the final battle to recover the Great Evolution Pass, but from the words of the Old Ancestor, it seemed that they would be able to capture the Great Evolution Pass without bloodshed?
The Black Ink Clan was willing to hand over the Great Evolution Pass?
Yang Kai’s brow wrinkled slightly as his thoughts flashed through his mind, quickly understanding the crux of the matter.
Although there was a hidden danger of releasing the tiger back into the mountain, it was a good thing for the current Human Race army. Not to mention the situation with the North-South Army, the East-West Army had just experienced a great battle, so if they were to experience another battle in the short term, the losses would not be small.
If they could take down Great Evolution Pass without bloodshed, they could avoid many unnecessary losses.
As for the Space Spirit Bead that the Old Ancestor wanted…
Yang Kai thought for a moment and silently observed a 'moment of silence' for the Black Ink Clan King.
Perhaps many years from now, even the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord would not be able to peacefully heal his wounds.
In the North-South Army’s camp, Li Xing was placed in a pavilion which was surrounded by a Spirit Array. Opening the Spirit Array would allow one to cultivate without being disturbed by the outside world.
However, at this moment, he wasn’t in the mood to cultivate. The reason he didn’t immediately return to the East-West army after completing his mission was because he wanted to verify if Regiment Commander Mi Jinglun’s guess was correct.
At the same time, he also wanted to know the situation of the East-West army.
Although he had learned a lot of secrets from Xiang Shan and knew that it wouldn’t be difficult for the East-West army to win this final battle, it would be difficult for the Old Ancestor to successfully kill the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord.
But before the results were out, no one could guarantee that they would be safe.
If he wanted to know the situation of the East-West army, it was very simple. He only needed to see the reaction of the Great Evolution Pass' Black Ink Clan to know.
As such, Li Xing had been observing the direction of Great Evolution Pass, wanting to see the situation there clearly, but because the distance was too far and his strength was only at the Seventh Order, he was unable to see any movements from the Great Evolution Black Ink Clan.
Just as he was eagerly waiting, a figure turned into a stream of light and rushed over from the direction of Great Evolution Pass.
Li Xing’s eyes lit up, knowing that this person should be one of the North-South Army’s people responsible for monitoring the Great Evolution Pass’ movements. Now that he had returned, he definitely had news to report.
Sure enough, after the man returned, he immediately boarded the Central Army Expelling Black Ink Battleship.
Li Xing wanted to inquire about this matter, but he was also afraid of being rude. After all, he was not a soldier of the North-South Army, so how could he have the qualifications to casually step into the Central Army Expelling Black Ink Battleship?
After waiting for a long time, Li Xing suddenly saw the person who had just returned from the Great Evolution Pass’ direction reappear. He quickly stepped forward and cupped his fists, “Senior Brother, please wait!”
The man was also a Seventh Order, so he looked up and recognized him, smiling, “Is it Brother Li from the East-West Army?”
Li Xing quickly nodded and asked, “May I ask Senior Brother if there is any movement from the Great Evolution Pass' Black Ink Clan?”
The Seventh Order hesitated for a moment and felt that this matter wasn’t a secret, so he opened his mouth and said, “Brother Li is right. Just now, there was a strange reaction from the Great Evolution Pass' Black Ink Clan, as if there was some kind of disturbance. However, because of the mountain pass, although we tried our best to investigate, we weren’t able to find out what the reason was. Perhaps it was as Brother Li said, the East-West army won a great victory, and the news spread from the Black Ink Clan’s King City to the Great Evolution Pass, causing the Black Ink Clan to feel uneasy.”
Li Xing was excited, “Of course!”
The Seventh Order smiled and said, “I also think so, so I quickly came back to report to the two Regiment Commanders. Brother Li, I still need to monitor the situation at Great Evolution Pass’ side, so I won’t chat with you any longer and will take my leave first.”
Saying so, he cupped his fists and left.
Li Xing’s tense heart finally relaxed. The Great Evolution Pass' Black Ink Clan had made a move, this was definitely because of the defeat at the King City.
The Black Ink Clan’s defeat in the King City meant that the East-West army’ previous plan had been implemented, meaning that the East-West army had won.
As such, there was no need for him to return to the East-West army, because according to their original plan, if they won the battle there, it wouldn’t be long before the East-West army arrived to meet up with the North-South army.
He only needed to wait here quietly to verify Mi Jinglun’s guess.
The Seventh Order Open Heaven bid farewell to Li Xing and flew towards Great Evolution Pass.
Half an hour later, he arrived on a floating continent. At this moment, there were two other Seventh Order Open Heaven masters on this floating continent. One of these two was covered in Demonic Qi and was obviously from Myriad Demons Heaven, while the other was wearing a green robe, but his aura was extremely natural and pure.
At this moment, one of the two Seventh Order Open Heaven Eyes had transformed into a golden vertical eye, a sign that he had activated the Demon Eye of Annihilation.
As for the Seventh Order man wearing a green robe, it was unknown what kind of Eye Technique he had used, but his pair of eyes had actually transformed into an amber color, faintly glowing.
The two of them sat down and stared towards Great Evolution Pass, trying to figure out what was happening.
The Cave Heaven Paradise was filled with talents, so it was naturally easy to find two people who cultivated eye techniques to monitor the movements of the Great Evolution Pass' Black Ink Clan.
Of these three people, two were responsible for monitoring and one was responsible for reporting.
After a moment, the Myriad Demons Heaven disciple suddenly let out a soft cry of surprise. At the same time, the green robed man, whose eyes turned to amber color, also blinked, obviously having discovered something.
