MARTIAL PEAK 5328


If he could digest all the gains he had gained from this trip, Yang Kai believed that his strength would improve by leaps and bounds.


It didn’t take much effort to familiarize himself with the power of the Dragon Body, all he needed to do was accumulate it.


Yang Kai focused more on comprehending the Time and Space Principle.


The rapid advancement of his two Great Daos gave him a faint sense of enlightenment.


The Space Dao was his main Dao, and the Time Dao was perhaps due to his bloodline. In the past, the Space Dao was the Space Principle, while the Time Dao was the Time Principle. The two were not closely related.


Even though he had once created this powerful Secret Technique, the Sun and Moon Divine Wheel, it was still a stroke of luck, so he didn’t think too much about it.


But now, it seemed that Space and Time had always been closely related.


Space was unable to exist on its own, and so was Time.


From ancient times until now, the four directions were the universe, and the interweaving of time and space created this vast and dazzling universe.


The Sun and Moon Divine Wheel combined the Time and Space Principle together, but that was the result of Yang Kai’s subconsciousness. Now that he looked at it again, his Sun and Moon Divine Wheel had many flaws and had a lot of room for improvement.


Faintly, Yang Kai seemed to grasp a flash of inspiration. If one day he was able to perfectly fuse the Time and Space Principle, the Sun and Moon Divine Wheel Secret Technique would definitely become much more powerful. With his current cultivation at the Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage, it was possible for him to use this Secret Technique to kill the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lord.


However, it was extremely difficult to fuse the two Great Daos together. As Yang Kai rushed forward, his Divine Sense fluctuated wildly, but he was unable to accomplish anything. He felt like something was missing.


This feeling of having a clear direction and having a goal right in front of him, yet not being able to pierce through that thin layer of barrier, was extremely bad and could easily cause one to become restless.


Therefore, from ancient times until now, there had been many cultivators who suffered from qi deviation while cultivating in seclusion. If they thought too much about it, they would have too many distracting thoughts and fail to achieve their goals. As a result, it was easy for them to deny themselves and cause their Great Dao to collapse.


Yang Kai didn’t want to suffer from qi deviation because of this, so every time his mood became restless, he would relax and focus on the changes brought about by the growth of his Dragon Body.


With this kind of adjustment, there was no problem.


A few months later, Great Evolution Pass entered his field of vision.


Yang Kai withdrew his thoughts and put away his dragon body, raising his eyes to look around. When he saw the busy figures on the walls of Great Evolution Pass, he couldn’t help letting out a sigh of relief.


He was really afraid that if he returned too late, he would miss the Human Race’s expedition.


From the looks of it, the expedition had yet to begin. It was reasonable, it take him almost a year to go back and forth the No-Return Pass. After spending several months in the No-Return Pass, it was now less than a year and a half since he left.


The Human Race army should not be ready yet.


Under the turbulence of the Space Principle, he arrived in front of Great Evolution Pass in a few leaps.


The soldiers on duty had long noticed this anomaly, but after seeing Yang Kai’s face, they quickly let him pass.


Returning to Great Evolution Pass and looking around, the soldiers inside the pass were in a hurry, as if they were preparing for war.


If they were to start an expedition at this time, Yang Kai didn’t know what the situations at the other war zones is like, but Great Evolution’s forces would definitely be unstoppable. Coupled with their previous victory over the Black Ink Clan and the Evil-Breaking Divine Lance, it shouldn’t be a problem for them to conquer the King City.


As for whether they could kill the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord, that would depend on the methods of Smiles Old Ancestor and the other Eighth Order masters.


A stream of Divine Sense suddenly surged out from somewhere, it was the Old Ancestor’s Divine Sense.


As soon as it touched him, it withdrew.


Yang Kai didn’t hesitate to follow the source of the Divine Sense and flew away.


A short while later, he arrived at the Old Ancestor’s palace. Inside the garden, Smiles Old Ancestor was lazily lying on a chair, glancing at him up and down before asking, “How was your trip?”


Yang Kai replied respectfully, “The harvest is not small.”


Smiles Old Ancestor nodded slightly and teased, “You didn’t leave your name in the Dragon Record?”


Yang Kai was stunned, “You know about the Dragon Record?”


Smiles Old Ancestor curled her lips, “It’s not like it’s some kind of secret, what’s so strange about knowing it?”


The only reason she knew was because she was a Ninth Order Supreme Master. Ordinary people had never heard of such a thing as a Dragon Record. Even Yang Kai had only learned that the Dragon Clan had a Dragon Record after going to the No-Return Pass and having a pure bloodline.


“The Dragon Clan wanted me to leave my name in the Dragon Record, but this disciple refused.”


“En,” Smiles Old Ancestor replied casually. If he really left his name in the Dragon Record, it would be impossible for Yang Kai to return to Great Evolution Pass.


Yang Kai suddenly frowned, “Are you injured again?”


Just now, he had noticed that Smiles Old Ancestor’s complexion was a bit pale. He thought it was because her injuries had yet to heal, but upon closer inspection, he felt that something was wrong. Smiles Old Ancestor’s aura was clearly unstable.


This was not something that could be explained by old injuries.


The only possibility was that Smiles Old Ancestor was injured again.


“I’ve been going to the King City more frequently recently,” Smiles Old Ancestor replied casually.


Yang Kai was speechless, “Just harass him, why fight with that Royal Lord?”


The previous battles had caused the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord’s injuries to accumulate, making it impossible for him to heal in peace, so Smiles Old Ancestor didn’t need to fight with him at all. All she needed to do was disturb him from time to time, causing him great pain.


He didn’t know why Smiles Old Ancestor had suddenly become so aggressive.


Saying so, he spread out his Small Universe.


Smiles Old Ancestor frowned, “It’s just a minor injury, I’ll be fine after a few days.”


Yang Kai said, “You’re an Old Ancestor, so this matter concerns the entire Great Evolution Pass. It’s more important for you to quickly recover.”


The Old Ancestor said, “I know you’re doing this out of goodwill, but I’ve spent a lot of time healing in your Small Universe and consume it's bustling world essence, which actually has some impact on you.”


Yang Kai smiled lightly, “Disciple knows, but it won’t affect me too much. You can just focus on healing.”


Smiles Old Ancestor glanced at him and sighed, no longer insisting.


Suddenly, her expression changed, “Your Small Universe…”


Yang Kai smiled and said, “My bloodline is pure and my Time Principle has improved. Now, the flow of time in my Small Universe is faster than before.”


Time flowed faster, making it easier for the Old Ancestor to heal her injuries.


After all, the Old Ancestor had lived there for hundreds of years, so she could naturally sense the changes here.


The Old Ancestor’s injuries this time weren’t too serious. She only need a few months to recover in his Small Universe, while only a month had passed in the outside world.


After recovering from her injuries, the Old Ancestor suddenly stood up, “Don't go in a hurry, wait for me here.”


Saying so, she soared into the sky. Yang Kai quickly put away his Small Universe, staring in the direction the Old Ancestor had left, his eyes twitching.


Was the Old Ancestor trying to find trouble with the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord after recovering from her injuries? No wonder she told him not to leave so quickly, it seemed he would have to help her heal her injuries later.


Sure enough, in less than half a day, the Old Ancestor had returned to Great Evolution Pass, but the Old Ancestor’s condition surprised Yang Kai greatly.


Although he couldn’t see anything wrong with her appearance, Yang Kai could clearly feel that the Old Ancestor’s injuries weren’t light. This time, her injuries were obviously much more serious than last time.


Needless to say, he quickly spread his Small Universe and let the Old Ancestor enter to heal.


After a few more months, the Old Ancestor’s injuries had completely healed and she once again left.


Returning half a day later, the Old Ancestor’s face was pale and there were traces of dried blood on her clothes.



After repeating this process several times, each time the Old Ancestor was injured, it was more severe than the last time, when the Old Ancestor returned, Yang Kai finally couldn’t bear it any longer and persuaded, “Old Ancestor, there’s no need to be so anxious. The expedition is imminent. When the time comes, we’ll first remove his wings and with the cooperation of many Eighth Order Garrison Chiefs, we can slowly deal with the Royal Lord.”


Yang Kai really didn’t understand what the Old Ancestor was trying to do. Although he had helped her heal her injuries and the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord was heavily injured, the other party could rely on the power of the Ink Nest to fight alone in the King City, so it wasn’t beneficial to the Old Ancestor.


The feeling Smiles Old Ancestor gave him now was as if she wanted to quickly finish off the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord.


Hearing this, Smiles Old Ancestor smiled bitterly, “It’s not what you think, I have my reasons.”


Yang Kai was confused.


Seemingly feeling somewhat apologetic, Smiles Old Ancestor smiled and explained, “I didn’t want to kill that Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord. Although his injuries are quite serious, without the cooperation of others, it would be difficult for me to kill him alone. I’ve gone to find trouble with him several times only because I want to get something back from him.”


“What is it?” Yang Kai was surprised.


Was there something on the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord’s side that belonged to the Old Ancestor? Could it be that she had lost it while fighting with the Royal Lord?


However, this was impossible. With the Old Ancestor’s cultivation, what could possibly be lost?


Smiles Old Ancestor was silent for a moment, seemingly hesitating about whether or not to tell Yang Kai about this, but in the end, she still said, “Every human mountain pass is actually a giant palace artifact, you should know this.”


Yang Kai nodded.


This was something he had learned when he first saw Blue Sky Pass, but this kind of palace artifact was simply too large and difficult to control. Even with the Old Ancestor’s strength, he was unable to control it alone.


“Every mountain pass has its own core, and with the help of that core, the Ninth Order guarding the mountain pass are able to control the entire mountain pass. With the assistance of others, a palace artifact like the mountain pass can also be used to attack enemies.”


“You can use that core as the eye of a Great Array. Without that core, the mountain pass is an inanimate object. It has no other use other than the defensive power it can provide, but if you have that core, the mountain pass can really be used as a palace artifact.”


“The core of Great Evolution Pass… has been lost, it is extremely likely that it fell into the hands of the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord, so I must retrieve it.”


Yang Kai was dumbfounded.


Listening to the Old Ancestor’s words, if there was such a core, the entire Great Evolution Pass wouldn’t need to remain in place and could easily reach the King City at any cost. At that time, with the strength of the Great Evolution Pass, how could the King City possibly resist? Even if it were to charge forward, it would be able to destroy the King City.


However, the core of Great Evolution had been lost, and without it, Great Evolution Pass could not move.


Thinking about it, it wasn’t strange. Great Evolution had been captured by the Black Ink Clan for thirty thousand years. Although they had recovered it now, how could the Black Ink Clan leave behind such an important thing? It was very likely that it had been taken away long ago.


This was the reason why Smiles Old Ancestor had been frequently seeking trouble with the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord. With the Expedition approaching, if Great Evolution Pass’s side didn’t have a core, they wouldn’t be able to mobilize the mountain passes, making it impossible for them to coordinate with the other mountain passes.


So no matter what, she had to retrieve the core of Great Evolution Pass.
