Thinking of Old Fang, Yang Xiao felt a little regretful. After so many years of contact, he knew that Old Fang had always regarded his Foster Father as his role model. If Old Fang were here and saw this scene, he would definitely feel honored.
At the same time, he also complained about Mi Jinglun. Why was it that they had all been sent to the Withdrawing Black Ink Army, but Old Fang had been left behind?
While Yang Xiao was cursing in his heart, in front of the deck, Yang Kai shouted, “It’s this Yang!”
In fact, there was no need for him to respond. The Territory Lord had already seen his figure from a distance. To all the masters of the Black Ink Clan, they don't have to recognize others, but they have to recognize Yang Kai, Yang Kai’s image had been sent to every Black Ink Clan master through various means.
Every Black Ink Clan master was familiar with this appearance…
As soon as he finished speaking, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship came to a stop not far from the Domain Gate. The Territory Lord who had shouted just now felt his entire body tense up as the Ink Force around him fluctuated uncontrollably. Under Yang Kai’s condescending gaze, he felt a sense of crisis that he had never felt before, causing him to feel as if the world around him had become dark and lightless…
This Territory Lord almost couldn’t hold back his aura and directly attacked Yang Kai!
Fortunately, he managed to calm himself down, because he knew that if he really attacked Yang Kai, he would become a corpse in the next moment! Yang Kai had used countless slaughters to prove his ability and means.
He cursed Mo Na Ye in his heart, because back when they were both Innate Territory Lord, he and Mo Na Ye had some verbal disputes, but today, he had been sent here to avenge his private wrongs. He dared to conclude that if he really was killed by Yang Kai because of some mistake, Mo Na Ye would simply pretend he had never found out and would never seek revenge for him, not even reporting it to the Royal Lord.
In a moment of panic, the Territory Lord squeezed out a smile and cupped his fists, imitating the etiquette of the Human Race, “Under the orders of Royal Lord Mo Na Ye, I respectfully await Sir Yang Kai’s arrival. Royal Lord Mo Na Ye has entrusted me with a question, why has Sir Yang Kai come here?”
These words were spoken very carefully, and although the expression on his face was a smile, it was somewhat like he was crying and extremely humble. Even when he spoke, his voice was trembling slightly.
On the Battleship, the Human Race’s Eighth Order masters watched on coldly, all of them exclaiming in their hearts. A single person’s deterrence had not been in vain!
Among these masters in the Battleship, which one of them wasn’t an Eighth Order Open Heaven? Although they were all Eighth Order, the Black Ink Clan was quite wary of Yang Kai, perhaps they didn’t even know their name.
“Mo Na Ye…” Yang Kai muttered. This guy was still as intelligent as ever. Although he hadn’t hidden his whereabouts along the way, seeing him arrange for the Territory Lord to wait here, it was obvious he had realized something.
“If I say I’m just borrowing a path from the No-Return Pass, what about it?” Yang Kai asked lightly.
The Territory Lord’s tense mind immediately relaxed, the smile on his face becoming more sincere as he stepped aside to open a path and extended his hand, “Royal Lord Mo Na Ye said that if the Human Race’s side is only here to take a shortcut, please enter, Sir Yang Kai!”
The corner of Yang Kai’s mouth curled up, but he didn’t waste any time talking to this Territory Lord and simply said in a low voice, “Be on guard!”
Although they felt that the Black Ink Clan wouldn’t seek trouble for themselves, they still had to take precautions. As soon as the order was given, all the Eighth Order masters immediately took up their positions.
With a wave of Yang Kai’s hand, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship slowly sailed into the Domain Gate and soon disappeared.
After the Expelling Black Ink Battleship completely entered the Domain Gate, the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lord let out a long sigh, suddenly feeling as if he had walked on the edge of death.
No-Return Pass, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship slowly appeared from the Domain Gate. In front of the deck, Yang Kai’s figure stood tall and straight like a flag, immediately seeing the vast lineup in front of him.
One by one, the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lords gathered in midair, led by Mo Na Ye.
Fortunately, all the Territory Lords had revealed their whereabouts and there were no traces of any great array in the surroundings, otherwise Yang Kai would have suspected that the Black Ink Clan had already made preparations and was waiting for them to fall into their trap.
On the Battleship, the auras of the Eighth Order Open Heaven erupted and the Territory Lords in front of them became nervous. Their eyes met and the atmosphere suddenly became tense.
It was impossible for the two races, who had long been fighting each other, to coexist peacefully.
Now, there were no immediate battles, only missions and orders.
As soon as the the Expelling Black Ink Battleship passed through the Domain Gate, Mo Na Ye cupped his hands and smiled, “Sir Yang Kai, we meet again so soon!”
On the surface, he was smiling, but on the inside, he couldn’t stop cursing. It had only been a year or two since Yang Kai had left this place…
“Sir Mo Na Ye!” Yang Kai also returned the greeting, a warm smile appearing on his face, “Sorry for disturbing you!”
On the Battleship, many of the Eighth Order masters wore strange expressions. If they didn’t consider the enmity between the two races, the scene of Yang Kai and Mo Na Ye meeting would have been like a reunion between old friends…
However, this seemingly fervent reunion was set off by the confrontation between the two sides.
“It’s fine, it’s fine!” Mo Na Ye smiled even more enthusiastically than Yang Kai, “This is a place of the Human Race, how can you disturb me?”
Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed slightly. This guy’s words were full of thorns… At that moment, he didn’t hold back and simply chuckled, “One day, I’ll take it back.”
Mo Na Ye’s smile didn’t falter, “Then I’ll wait and see.”
Yang Kai nodded, “One day!”
Mo Na Ye no longer tried to argue with him and instead changed the subject, “Sir Yang Kai has come to…”
“Don’t worry, I’m not here to make things difficult for the Black Ink Clan, I’m just here to take a trip to the depths of the Ink Battlefield.”
“So that’s how it is!” Mo Na Ye revealed a look of enlightenment, “The war between the two races is quite frequent now, and Sir Yang Kai even mobilized so many Human Race masters, so there must be something important. Since that’s the case, I’ll send you off!”
“Thank you for your trouble!” Yang Kai said politely before stepping out of the Expelling Black Ink Battleship and standing beside Mo Na Ye.
This action startled Mo Na Ye and he couldn’t help turning to look at Yang Kai.
If Yang Kai had stayed inside the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, he really wouldn’t have thought much about it, but with Yang Kai standing so close… wasn’t he afraid he would suddenly attack?
With his strength as a Pseudo-Royal Lord, if he really went all out, even if Yang Kai had his Space Ability, he might not be able to escape unscathed. At that time, as long as the true Royal Lord managed to kill his way out of the Ink Nest, he might have a chance to kill Yang Kai!
No, Yang Kai couldn’t be so stupid. If he really was so stupid, he would have died somewhere long ago. But what was he doing? What right did he have?
Mo Na Ye was at a loss.
Yang Kai just grinned at him and walked forward with him while casually asking, “Where’s the Royal Lord?”
If it was before, he really wouldn’t have been so close to Mo Na Ye. The Pseudo-Royal Lord was also a Royal Lord, not someone he could look down on now. But now that he had a life-saving trump card, he wasn’t afraid of Mo Na Ye.
On the contrary, by doing so, the other party would become suspicious. Dealing with such a clever fellow like Mo Na Ye couldn’t be done step by step. It would require some kind of abnormal action to disturb his concentration.
The truth was indeed so. Yang Kai asking about the Royal Lord made Mo Na Ye even more vigilant. Not only was Yang Kai standing so close to him, he even took the initiative to ask about the Royal Lord…
What was this bastard trying to do!?
Numerous thoughts flashed across his mind as he casually replied, “Sir Royal Lord has always had some hidden injuries on his body and is currently resting and healing in the Ink Nest.”
“Sir Royal Lord’s injury… could it have been left behind by me?”
“…” Mo Na Ye didn’t know how to respond.
For a time, the atmosphere was extremely strange. Yang Kai and Mo Na Ye were standing side by side, chatting casually, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship following close behind, while the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lords stood on either side of them, their expressions calm and peaceful.
The two races’ masters gradually drifted apart.
After flying a million kilometers away from the No-Return Pass, Mo Na Ye stopped and said, “Sir Yang Kai, we’ll send you off here!”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Good, when I have time later, I’ll treat you to a drink. The Human Race has countless fine wines, so don’t miss it.”
Mo Na Ye immediately replied, “I never drink!”
“All the more reason to try,” Yang Kai laughed, “Then it’s settled.”
Saying so, he didn’t care about Mo Na Ye’s reaction and flashed back to the Expelling Black Ink Battleship. Under his command, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship transformed into a streak of light and flew deeper into the Ink Battlefield.
Looking in the direction where the stream of light disappeared, Mo Na Ye felt his teeth ache…
Originally, Yang Kai had led so many Eighth Order Human Race masters to the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, so he definitely wouldn’t be able to return in a short time. He had even prepared to go to the frontline battlefield to oversee things.
In the end, Yang Kai’s words stopped him. The No-Return Pass now has him and the Royal Lord holding down the fort, the Ink Nest’s safety would be ensured. If he left, the Royal Lord alone might not be able to stop Yang Kai. At that time, although he would be invincible on the battlefield, Yang Kai would be able to find an opportunity to destroy the Ink Nest while he was away.
What a troublesome fellow!
Leading the group of Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lords back to the No-Return Pass, Mo Na Ye thought about it for a long time but still didn’t dare to leave, unless the Black Ink Clan decided to create another Pseudo-Royal Lord.
However, the price they had to pay to create a Pseudo-Royal Lord was not small, and the Black Ink Clan was also unable to bear it.
On the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, a group of Eighth Order Human Race masters remained silent. They did not feel complacent because they had safely passed the No-Return Pass and the Black Ink Clan had politely sent them off, instead feeling a deep sense of humiliation.
When they passed through these abandoned mountain passes, they saw that these mountain passes were now filled with Ink Nests and large numbers of Black Ink Clans.
This was a weapon used by the Human Race in the Ink Battlefield to resist the Black Ink Clan. It had been passed down from generation to generation by the Human Race’s ancestors, and countless pioneer soldiers had poured their blood and sweat into these mountain passes. Each mountain pass had a Heroic Spirit Monument engraved with names.
But now, it had become the Black Ink Clan’s spoils of war!
