Yang Xiao couldn’t bear the loneliness and rushed out curiously to look at the Celestial Phenomenon as he was passing by. If it weren’t for Yang Kai saving him, he would have been unable to return. Yang Xue grabbed his ear and reprimanded him for a long time. In the end, Yang Xue promised that this would never happen again, so Yang Xiao decided to let this matter pass, causing the people on the Battleship to burst into laughter.
A few years later, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship entered the ancient battlefield. The first time they saw this battlefield, the Eighth Order Open Heaven masters were all shocked. The Eighth Order veterans explained all kinds of things to them, causing the younger generation to become intoxicated.
It wasn’t until this moment that they realized that at the end of the Ancient Era, there had been a Human Race ancestor who had fought against the Black Ink Clan on this vast battlefield and ultimately won. Although they hadn’t been able to kill Black Ink’s main body, they had at least managed to contain the Black Ink Clan within the Ink Battlefield.
But now, the Black Ink Clan had invaded the 3000 Worlds, causing the Heavens to wither and dry up, while the Human Race was trapped in a dozen or so Great Domain battlefields. The situation had become worse than ever.
Everyone’s hearts were heavy and filled with determination.
Close to the Ancient Battlefield was the Land Without Spirituality, and here, the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction was right in front of them!
After setting off with the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, after eighteen years, Yang Kai finally led a group of Eighth Order Human Race masters to the place where the Human Race’s Expedition Army had been defeated last time, the place where the Black Ink Clan’s Mother Nest was located, the place where Black Ink’s main body was sealed!
As the Expelling Black Ink Battleship passed through the ruins, one could see the destroyed Human Race Battleships floating quietly in the void, the remnants of the mountain pass, and even some broken limbs and pieces of flesh, as well as the corpses of the Human Race and Black Ink Clan soldiers.
These were the remnants of the last great battle. During the final battle of the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, Yang Kai wasn’t present. Because of Cang, he had long been targeted by an Black Ink Clan Royal Lord and had no choice but to flee. After fleeing for a few dozen years, Yang Kai entered the Celestial Phenomenon Sea and broke through to the Eighth Order. After emerging from the Celestial Phenomenon Sea, he killed the Black Ink Clan Royal Lord who was chasing him.
It was only afterwards that he learned about the tragedy of this battle.
Originally, the Human Race shouldn’t have been defeated here. There were more than a hundred mountain passes and an army of millions, each of them at least a Fifth Order Open Heaven master and over a hundred Ninth Order Old Ancestors. Such a lineup was definitely the strongest elite force the Human Race had accumulated over hundreds of thousands of years.
However, inside the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, the Ink Giant Spiritual God had rushed out, and behind the Human Race army, the other Ink Giant Spiritual God that had been patrolling the Ancient Battlefield was also awakened.
With the two powerful Ink Giant Spiritual God attacking from the front and back, and the Black Ink Clan having many Royal Lords and Territory Lords, the Human Race’s army had suffered a crushing defeat. Helpless, the Old Ancestors ordered the various armies to withdraw from the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, retreating again…
The scene in front of them was tragic. Even though they had not personally participated in that battle, they could still feel the intensity of it. On the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, the atmosphere was heavy as figures constantly flew out to collect the corpses of the Human Race soldiers floating in the void.
In the past, the Human Race army had retreated in a hurry and the corpses of the fallen soldiers had not even been collected.
Su Yan also activated her Sun and Moon Marks to create a purifying light that purified the black ink clouds in the sky, but soon, she gave up. The number of Black Ink Clan cultivators who had died here was far greater than the number of human race, and the amount of Ink Force they had left behind was far too great. Although she did not lack Yellow Crystals and Blue Crystals, she could not afford to waste them.
In the distance, a Divine Sense stretched out and everyone felt the majesty of this Divine Sense, causing all the Eighth Order Human Race masters to shiver!
This was definitely not an Eighth Order Divine Sense, but a Ninth Order Divine Sense!
The Eighth Order cultivators were all excited. Were there still Ninth Order Human Race guarding this place?
Before they could fully investigate, the Divine Sense was retracted, clearly indicating that they had already identified Yang Kai and the others.
Following the many ruins of the battlefield, the Expelling Black Ink Battleship soon arrived at a giant fragment.
This fragment should belong to a certain mountain pass that had been destroyed, and judging from its shape, it should be the drill grounds of the mountain pass.
Above the remnants of the mountain pass, a figure with white hair and white clothes stood quietly with his hands behind his back, staring in the direction of the Expelling Black Ink Battleship.
Seeing this person, many Eighth Order Human Race masters immediately understood that there was no Ninth Order Human Race master here, but this person.
No wonder they hadn’t heard any news about this Senior for so many years. It turned out that he had come here a long time ago. It seemed that he had been arranged here by the Head Office Division.
Yang Kai jumped down from the Expelling Black Ink Battleship and arrived in front of the white-haired man, cupping his fists, “Sir Fu Guang!”
This white-robed, white-haired man was the current Dragon Emperor of the Dragon Clan, the only Divine Dragon.
Yang Kai had sent Wu Kuang to this place in the past and had him oversee the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction. Although this fellow claimed that he would be able to break through to the Ninth Order in 3000 years and ensure that the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction was safe, there was nothing wrong with being careful.
Because of this, Yang Kai had long ago advised the Head Office Division to prepare manpower to assist Wu Kuang outside the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction to prevent any accidents.
However, the number of people the Human Race could mobilize now was limited, and only a few of them were capable of carrying out this kind of mission. The two Human Race Old Ancestors fulfilled this requirement, but they had to remain in Wind Mist Territory to restrain the Ink Giant Spiritual God while also being restrained by it.
After thinking about it, only the Dragon Clan’s Fu Guang met this requirement.
However, during the battle in the Spatial Territory, Fu Guang had suffered heavy injuries and nearly died on the spot. If it weren’t for the Dragon Emperor’s desperate rescue, Fu Guang’s name would have become one of the fallen.
After retreating from the Spatial Territory, Fu Guang had been recuperating in the depths of the Dragon Pond. With the help of the Dragon Pond’s power, his injuries had only fully recovered a thousand years ago.
Without any delay, he immediately set out.
On the way here, he also pass through the No-Return Pass, causing the Black Ink Clan’s side to feel as if they were facing a great enemy. Fortunately, Fu Guang had no intention of taking action, only passing by. Before this, the Black Ink Clan had been wondering why this Divine Dragon from the Dragon Clan had entered the Ink Battlefield.
Counting it, Fu Guang had been sitting here alone for a thousand years.
“Sir has worked hard,” Yang Kai said again. A thousand years of loneliness was not an easy thing for a Holy Spirit with a long lifespan like the Dragon Clan.
Fu Guang smiled and shook his head, his eyes sweeping over Yang Kai in surprise, “Your Dragon Vein…”
Yang Kai secretly praised this Dragon Emperor for his strong perception, but since they were both from the Dragon Clan, even if Yang Kai didn’t use the Dragon Vein’s power, Fu Guang should have noticed something.
Yang Kai casually explained, “I received some gifts from the Ancestral Land.”
Fu Guang suddenly understood, “This is a good opportunity.”
He was still puzzled as to why Yang Kai’s Dragon Vein had grown so quickly. During his trip in the Dragon Pond, he had only been a seven thousand zhang Ancient Dragon, but now, Yang Kai gave him a feeling that he was no less powerful than when he was in secluded cultivation.
In other words, the current Yang Kai was very likely to be stuck at the last step to becoming a Divine Dragon like him.
The energy in the Dragon Pond had been greatly consumed after two thousand years of healing, so it was impossible for Yang Kai to obtain too many benefits from the Dragon Pond, allowing the Dragon Vein to improve so greatly.
It turned out he had received a gift from the Ancestral Land.
As the two of them spoke, the group of Eighth Order Human Race masters and the sixty Holy Spirits all stepped forward to greet the current Dragon Emperor, none of them daring to show any disrespect.
The Eighth Order masters finally knew who the Regiment Commander of their Withdrawing Black Ink Army was. Although there had been some speculations before, it was only now that they confirmed it.
An expert like Fu Guang was definitely qualified to be the commander of the Withdrawing Black Ink Army.
Zhujian and the other Holy Spirits felt more like they had boarded a pirate ship. Although they knew that even after 3000 years, they would still have to fight side by side with the Human Race, now that they were under the watchful eyes of the current Dragon Emperor, they could not afford to be careless.
After exchanging greetings, Yang Kai quickly asked, “Sir, how is the situation here?”
Fu Guang said, “There’s nothing special about it, it’s just… talkative!”
“Talkative?” Yang Kai was stunned for a moment before quickly realizing that Wu Kuang should be the one talking too much.
Yang Kai couldn’t help but laugh, his tense mood also relaxing a lot. In this situation, it meant that there were no major flaws in the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction. If there really was a problem, Wu Kuang wouldn’t have had the time to say so much.
It was at this moment that Wu Kuang’s voice rang out from the depths of the void, “The void is desolate and the passage of time is fleeting. There are only the two of us here, so what does it matter if we talk more? Also… it’s not a good habit to speak ill of others behind their backs.”
Fu Guang smiled helplessly and cupped his fists towards Wu Kuang. After so many years of communication, he had learned about Wu Kuang’s background and many other things, so he had a deep respect for this reincarnation of an ancient sage.
Not to mention, guarding the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction alone was something worthy of respect.
The Eighth Order Open Heaven masters and even the Holy Spirits were all shocked. Previously, their attention had been drawn to Fu Guang, so they hadn’t known that there was a second person here. Now, as they looked towards the source of the voice, all of them were stunned.
What they saw was endless darkness!
This deep darkness seemed to be able to swallow everything, even their mind felt like it was being sucked into it, causing them to feel somewhat dizzy.
Fortunately, none of them were weak, so when they noticed the abnormality, they immediately calmed down and the uncomfortable feeling disappeared.
Someone asked fearfully, “Is this the location of the Black Ink Clan’s Mother Nest?”
He had long heard that the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction had sealed the Black Ink Clan’s Mother Nest, but hearing about it and seeing it with his own eyes was another matter.
This was the source of the current chaos in the universe and the birthplace of all the Black Ink Clan. How could such a deep and endless darkness be completely destroyed?
Even the Eighth Order Open Heaven masters couldn’t help feeling a sense of helplessness.
“Don’t let your thoughts be disturbed. The Human Race’s Ancestors have fought for hundreds of thousands of years, and generations of heroes have poured their blood onto the battlefield to resist the Black Ink Clan and protect the younger generation. Now that this responsibility is handed over to you, if you lose, the Human Race and all the Holy Spirits may no longer exist in this world. At that time, the Heavens will be completely finished. The Human Race’s Ancestors were able to seal it in this place, so how could you not have the courage to fight it?”
