MARTIAL PEAK 5438


When the Expelling Black Ink Pill was first introduced, Yang Kai had experimented with a few Alchemy Great Grandmasters from the Blue Sky Pass.


This pill indeed had the ability to restrain the Ink Force, but if it was used against a Black Ink Disciple who had been completely transformed, the Expelling Black Ink Pill would not be effective.


The deeper the influence of the Ink Force, the more limited the effects of the Expelling Black Ink Pill would be.


As such, when the Human Race faced the erosion of the Ink Force, they would usually use two methods at once. They would consume the Expelling Black Ink Pill before the battle, and they would use the Light of Purification to disperse the Ink Force if they were to be accidentally corroded by it.


Azure Void Pass had been broken, and the twenty thousand strong army had fought to the end, leaving behind only a thousand or so soldiers. Many of these thousand or so soldiers had suffered from the corrosion of Ink Force all year round.


The Expelling Black Ink Battleship left here was their only hope.


That was why the Eighth Order Garrison Chief had come to take back the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, but there had been no news of him ever since. Sun Mao and the others also speculated that the Garrison Chief's group had met with some kind of accident, and that there were still powerful enemies hiding inside Azure Void Pass. Over the years, they had never dared to approach Azure Void Pass again.


It wasn’t until yesterday that a great battle broke out and Sun Mao and the others risked their lives to investigate, personally witnessing Yang Kai kill the Tusk Territory Lord.


“Where are Garrison Chief Huang and the other fellow disicples hiding right now? Quickly lead me…” Yang Kai was just about to say that he would lead them over to help dispel the Ink Force when he suddenly remembered that he couldn’t do such a thing.


In order to dispel the Ink Force, one needed to activate the Light of Purification, while the Light of Purification required Yellow Crystals and Blue Crystals.


He had cultivated for four thousand years in the Celestial Phenomenon Sea and had used up all his Yellow Crystals and Blue Crystals…


Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a bit annoyed. If he had known this would happen, he would have kept some Yellow Crystals and Blue Crystals as backup. However, after cultivating in the River of Time and sensing the increase in his strength, Yang Kai couldn’t bear to stop until he had used up all his resources.


If he had more resources, he would probably still be cultivating in the River of Time.


Such opportunities were simply too rare.


“Please invite Garrison Chief Huang and the others over. I’ll first investigate Azure Void Pass and see if there are any remnants of the Black Ink Clan,” Yang Kai ordered.


Sun Mao and the others quickly left after receiving their orders.


After they left, Yang Kai began to inspect the interior of Azure Void Pass. This time, he examined it very carefully, sweeping his Divine Sense over every inch of the mountain pass to confirm that there was no trace of the Black Ink Clan.


It seemed that only the three Territory Lords he had killed were the only Black Ink Clan here.


Thinking about it, it wasn’t strange. The Black Ink Clan naturally wouldn’t care too much about a broken Human Race Mountain Pass. The reason they had left three Territory Lords here was to prevent the humans from collecting the corpse of the Azure Void Pass’ Old Ancestor.


With three Innate Territory Lords working together, without the Human Race’s Old Ancestor, it was more than enough to deal with most situations.


The Garrison Chief that Sun Mao spoke of should have fallen at their hands.


Yang Kai once again arrived at the square and respectfully bowed towards Azure Void Pass’ Old Ancestor’s corpse before carefully storing him and the Old Ox inside his Small Universe.


Soon after, he arrived next to the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, which had almost been cut in half. Fortunately, the place where the Light of Purification and Universe Formation had been sealed was not seriously damaged, otherwise Yang Kai would not have been able to respond when he used the Universe Escape Law.


Right now, it was unknown whether the Light of Purification sealed inside had leaked out or not. Strictly speaking, the Light of Purification was just a ray of light, a manifestation of pure energy. When the Expelling Black Ink Battleship was built, Yang Kai and the Array Great Grandmaster had worked together to create a sealed environment inside the ship to ensure that the Light of Purification would not leak out.


If he wanted to enter or leave, he would have to rely on the Space Array.


Now that the Expelling Black Ink Battleship was damaged, if the Spirit Array was also affected, any tiny flaw in it would cause the purifying light inside to disappear.


Yang Kai secretly prayed in his heart. Now that he didn’t have any more Yellow Crystals or Blue Crystals, he couldn’t use the Light of Purification. If even the Light of Purification inside the Expelling Black Ink Battleship was gone, then the situation of Garrison Chief Huang and the others would be quite worrying.


Standing on the deck, Yang Kai examined the Space Array and found that it was damaged, quickly repairing it.


In less than half a day, the Space Array had been repaired, and Yang Kai stood on it, trying to activate it, secretly breathing a sigh of relief. Fortunately, the Space Array that had been set up inside the Expelling Black Ink Battleship had no problems, otherwise, he really wouldn’t know how to enter.


The light from the Spirit Array lit up and Yang Kai instantly appeared inside the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, his heart filled with anticipation.


The Spirit Array inside the Expelling Black Ink Battleship had been damaged and this place was no longer sealed, nor was there any trace of the Light of Purification.


Moreover, there was also the remains of a Black Ink Clan corpse here…


The Black Ink Clan had occupied Azure Void Pass, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship was clearly different from the other Human Race Battleships, so how could the Black Ink Clan not inspect it?


This dead Black Ink Clan master should have come here to investigate the situation, but when he landed in a place filled with the purifying light, he was like an ant that had fallen into a pot of oil. Before dying, he had used his full strength to destroy the Spirit Array here, causing the purifying light to leak out.


Gritting his teeth, Yang Kai quickly teleported out.


There was no purifying light inside the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, so he couldn’t activate it, so he could only place his hopes on the Expelling Black Ink Pill.


Hopefully, the situation of Garrison Chief Huang and the others wasn’t too serious, otherwise the effects of the Expelling Black Ink Pill would be greatly reduced.


Ever since the Expelling Black Ink Pill had appeared, every mountain pass had been refining them in large quantities, and before each great battle, they would be distributed to the soldiers as backup.


Yang Kai had never accepted it because he had no use for it.


Therefore, he didn’t have any Expelling Black Ink Pill with him.


However, he was the one who discovered the original pill recipe for the Expelling Black Ink Pill. This pill was also refined by him and several other Great Grandmasters, so it wasn’t difficult to refine it.


As for Alchemy materials, he didn’t lack them. When he was in Blue Sky Pass, he had planted a large number of herbs to refine Expelling Black Ink Pills in his small Universe's Medicine Garden. Under the care of the two little wood spirits, the herbs in the Small Universe's Medicine Garden could be said to be everywhere. Even the Profound Female Spirit Fruit had been harvested many times over, accumulating thousands of them.


After all, the Small Universe’s flow of time was different from the outside world. He had spent thousands of years on the River of Time, and tens of thousands of years had passed in the Small Universe.


Yang Kai immediately began refining pills.


His Alchemy Dao had been abandoned a long time ago, but the strange journey in the Celestial Phenomenon Sea had allowed his Great Dao to advance by leaps and bounds, and his Alchemy Dao was no exception.


Although he hadn’t reached the level of Great Grandmaster yet, refining some Expelling Black Ink Pills was still easy.


A batch of Expelling Black Ink Pills soon appeared and Yang Kai continued to refine them. Before the second batch was completed, Sun Mao and the others had already arrived with the thousand remaining soldiers.


After more than two hundred years, the soldiers had once again set foot on Azure Void Pass, even if they had to die in battle, they would not frown. But all of them had tears in their eyes now.


Outside the Pass, the bitter battlefield reminded them of the bloody battle they had fought with the Black Ink Clan two hundred years ago, causing their emotions to surge.


The leader of this group was a burly middle-aged man with a white beard and a dignified expression. Seeing Yang Kai from afar, who seemed to be in the middle of refining pills, he stopped and did not disturb him.


This man was an Eighth Order Open Heaven cultivator, the only Eighth Order among the thousand or so people here, so he should be the Garrison Chief Huang Sun Mao was referring to.


They didn’t step forward, but Yang Kai cupped his fists and bowed, “Great Evolution Yang Kai greets Garrison Chief Huang and all the fellow disciples.”


Huang Xiong’s eyes flashed, “Martial Nephew’s great name resounds like thunder in my ears. Only now do I know that Martial Nephew’s strength is not only outstanding, but also has profound attainments in Alchemy. Truly outstanding.”


The reason he didn’t disturb Yang Kai was because he was afraid he would fail in his Pill Refining. Seeing that Yang Kai still greets them while refining pills, it clearly showed that he was able to do them with ease. This was obviously something only someone with extremely high attainments in Alchemy could accomplish.


Yang Kai squeezed out a smile and forced himself to say, “Garrison Chief is too kind. I just finished refining a batch of Expelling Black Ink Pill, so please distribute them.”


Although reuniting with his many comrades was a joyous occasion, in this environment, Yang Kai found it difficult to smile.


With a single glance, Yang Kai saw that among the thousand or so broken soldiers, many of them had been contaminated by the Ink Force. Even Huang Xiong’s body was covered in a faint black aura. As he spoke, a trace of darkness flashed across his eyes.


This was obviously a sign of the erosion of the Ink Force. If he continued to ignore it, it would take at least several months or at most several years for Huang Xiong to be completely eroded.


However, they obviously wouldn’t allow such a thing to happen. If it really came to that, they would either die or give up their Small Universe's territory.


Huang Xiong stepped forward, took the newly refined Expelling Black Ink Pill, and casually tossed it to the soldiers behind him while sitting cross-legged next to Yang Kai, quietly watching him refine pills.


After a moment, Huang Xiong opened his mouth and said, “The Expelling Black Ink Battleship…”


Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “The Black Ink Clan went inside to investigate and destroyed the Spirit Array inside. The Light of Purification has been lost.”


Although Huang Xiong had already guessed this when he first saw Yang Kai refining pills, after confirming this matter, he still sighed heavily, “I shouldn’t have let Brother Hai come here and lost his life in vain.”


There weren’t many masters among the thousand or so remnants of their forces, and the only ones who still had an Eighth Order Open Heaven strength were him and the Garrison Chief Hai. More than a decade ago, Garrison Chief hai had brought people to Azure Void Pass to seize the Expelling Black Ink Battleship but they never returned, so he knew that Garrison Chief Hai had likely suffered a vicious attack from the Black Ink Clan.


Yang Kai remained silent, mainly because he didn’t know what to say.


Huang Xiong suddenly asked, “What kind of opportunity did Martial Nephew obtain? How did you so quickly advance to the Eighth Order?”


According to the information he had gathered, Yang Kai was a Seventh Order Open Heaven master, and he had only just broken through to the Seventh Order. Logically speaking, it was impossible for him to break through to the Eighth Order so quickly.


But now, not only had he broken through to the Eighth Order, he had even killed three Innate Territory Lords in Azure Void Pass.


This kind of strength was not inferior to the peak Eighth Order Open Heaven masters. Although Yang Kai’s injuries were not light, these injuries seemed to have no effect on his Pill Refining at all, causing Huang Xiong to feel somewhat strange.
