MARTIAL PEAK 5811


Since there was no news about Yang Kai from the Black Ink Clan, it meant that Yang Kai could not have died at the hands of the Black Ink Clan.


However, whether Yang Kai was dead or alive, if he was alive, where he was, was something the Human Race’s upper echelons urgently needed to figure out.


Mi Jinglun also summoned many Human Race masters who had returned from the Universe Furnace to inquire about Yang Kai.


According to the reports, the last person to see Yang Kai was Ouyang Lie. After the great battle in the Universe Furnace world which had swept through the many masters of the Human Race and Black Ink Clan, Yang Kai had healed his injuries and left.


Before he left, he had a brief conversation with Ouyang Lie and said that he wanted to find the remaining Best Quality Open Heaven Pill while also trying to find the answers to his doubts.


What was it about? Ouyang Lie didn’t ask, and Yang Kai didn't take the initiative to tell him either.


Since then, Ouyang Lie had never seen Yang Kai again. After all, the Universe Furnace world was still quite vast, so it was normal for them to not meet each other.


On the other hand, there were some Eighth Order Human Race masters who vaguely felt Yang Kai’s aura, but at that time, Yang Kai seemed to be being pursued by the Chaos Spirit King, so none of them dared to approach him. Yang Kai simply flew past them and took the Chaos Spirit King with him.


Without any valuable information, Mi Jinglun was unable to deduce Yang Kai’s whereabouts.


After separating from Ouyang Lie, Yang Kai had been pursued by the Chaos Spirit King. In other words, Yang Kai must have gone to find trouble with the Chaos Spirit King and perhaps even snatched back the Best Quality Open Heaven Pill he had lost. Otherwise, the Chaos Spirit King wouldn’t have such a big reaction.


With Yang Kai’s current strength and means, it was actually very easy for him to escape from the Chaos Spirit King. After activating his Space Divine Ability a few times, he could easily shake off the Chaos Spirit King.


Yang Kai was being chased on purpose, probably because he was afraid the angry Chaos Spirit King would find trouble with the other Human Race masters and use this method to keep him busy.


Even so, Yang Kai wouldn’t have been killed by the Chaos Spirit King.


The information he had was too little, and even with Mi Jinglun’s intelligence, it was difficult for him to deduce what had happened to Yang Kai. He only knew that something must have happened to him, otherwise he would have appeared long ago.


On this day, Mi Jinglun made his way to the Star Boundary without alerting anyone and appeared in High Heaven Palace.


When Chief Manager Hua Qing Si learned of this matter, she hurriedly came to see him. Mi Jinglun explained his purpose for coming, and Hua Qing Si naturally agreed. After making some arrangements, Mi Jinglun met Xia Ningchang, who was staying behind at High Heaven Palace.


All of Yang Kai’s wives were currently residing in the Withdrawing Black Ink Army, outside of the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, under Fu Guang’s command, resisting the Black Ink Clan’s resistance.


The only exception was Xia Ningchang, who was proficient in Alchemy.


During the Great War, there was a great need for logistics, especially for pills. The soldiers needed pills to cultivate, and when they were injured, they also needed pills.


As such, the status of Alchemists increased day by day, especially masters like Xia Ningchang, who were practically indispensable to ensuring the smooth progress of the war.


How could Mi Jinglun bear to put such a person on the front lines? Basically, all the Alchemists and Artifact Refiners were gathered in the safe Star Boundary. Every year, a large amount of resources would be sent over, refined into pills, artifacts, and sent to the front lines.


Mi Jinglun and Xia Ningchang weren’t familiar with each other and had never met before, but because of Yang Kai and Xia Ningchang’s Alchemy skills, Mi Jinglun had some understanding of her.


The reason he had come to find Xia Ningchang was because she was the only one who was most familiar with Yang Kai.


Inside High Heaven Palace’s guest hall, Mi Jinglun didn’t wait long before Xia Ningchang arrived.


The veiled woman’s true appearance was difficult to see, but her eyes, which should have been bright and clear, revealed a hint of fatigue. Mi Jinglun smelled an extremely rich medicinal fragrance and noticed that although Xia Ningchang had specially arranged her hair, it was still somewhat messy. How could he not know that this woman had been busy in the Pill Chamber all year round and had probably not rested for many years?


Women had always paid attention to their appearance. If it wasn’t for the fact that they didn’t have the time and effort, how could they not take care of themselves?


“Greetings, Chief Mi!” Xia Ningchang bowed respectfully. She had long since heard of this man who presided over the Human Race’s Head Office and was in charge of the overall situation, commanding the various Human Race armies to fight against the Black Ink Clan.


Mi Jinglun stood up and helped her up, “Madam Xia is too polite.”


After exchanging some pleasantries, both sides sat down.


Mi Jinglun was still thinking about how he should ask her about Yang Kai, but unexpectedly, Xia Ningchang had already asked, “Did Chief Mi come here for the matter of my Husband?”


Mi Jinglun was stunned for a moment before nodding, “Indeed!” He then asked curiously, “Madam doesn’t seem worried?”


He didn’t see any worry in Xia Ningchang’s eyes. Logically speaking, as a woman, Xia Ningchang shouldn’t have been able to remain so calm after so many years of silence.


Under the veil, Xia Ningchang smiled, “How could I not be worried? It’s just that my Husband should be fine.”


Hearing her say so, Mi Jinglun couldn’t help asking curiously, “How can you be so certain?”


He didn’t have any clues here, so how could Xia Ningchang confirm that Yang Kai was safe? If it was a few years ago, when Yang Kai was in charge of that artifact called the Loyalty List, they could still determine Yang Kai’s situation through the lives of the people who had left their names on it, but after Yang Kai set out on his journey to the Ink Battlefield and took the initiative to remove the restrictions placed on the nine people from the Loyalty List, Yang Kai no longer had any life or death relationship with them.


Xia Ningchang was silent for a moment before asking, “Feeling?”


Mi Jinglun couldn’t help laughing. How could she judge such a big matter based on her feeling? It was simply too childish.


Xia Ningchang continued, “This Mistress and Husband met when we were still young and were both in High Heaven Pavilion, both of us were apprentices, Senior Sister Su Yan was also with us. Husband’s cultivation aptitude wasn’t very good in the beginning and he was almost kicked out of High Heaven Pavilion…”


Recalling the events of the past, the corners of Xia Ningchang’s eyes curled up like crescent moons, obviously very happy.


Mi Jinglun didn’t interrupt her and just listened quietly. Only now did he realize that Yang Kai’s rise to power was nothing more than a minor character’s arduous struggle.


From being a sweeping servant of a small Sect in some remote village, he had grown up to become a cornerstone of the Human Race, even a flag and a symbol of faith. What kind of outstanding willpower was this? It required him to put in more effort than those with extraordinary talent.


He couldn’t help letting out a long sigh, “Great waves wash away the sand, revealing one’s true colors.”


Xia Ningchang lifted her hand and brushed her hair behind her ear, “Husband has always done great things. Us sisters have been under his wing for many years and are often unable to help him. In fact, everyone is quite anxious, so all these years, whether it is Sister Rumeng or Senior Sister Su Yan, all of them have been cultivating diligently, hoping that one day, even if they cannot help Husband, they will not become a burden to him.”


Mi Jinglun said solemnly, “Madam Xia is being too serious. Yu Rumeng and the others are currently outside the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, listening to Senior Fu Guang’s orders to resist the Black Ink Clan there and ensure that the Great Restriction is not lost. There is no one there to rely on, and they have worked hard for many years. Although Madam has no battles to fight in the rear, she can refine Spirit Pills and do her best for the Human Race’s army. All of you are heroes among women, so who dares say you are a burden? Who can say you are a burden?”


Xia Ningchang smiled and said, “The Black Ink Clan’s invasion concerns the survival of the Human Race, so we should do our best. We are doing our own things, and so is my Husband. Since many years ago, my Husband has been constantly on the move, often without any news for many years. Back then, he entered the Ink Battlefield without hesitation and disappeared for two thousand years, but…”


She paused for a moment before her tone became firm, “But, Husband has never disappointed us Sisters. We just need to wait. No matter where Husband is, no matter what happens, one day he will return.”


This was the reason why she felt that Yang Kai was fine, because there were many people waiting for him! And he had never disappointed those who had been waiting for him.


Mi Jinglun remained silent.


After a while, Xia Ningchang stood up and left.


Mi Jinglun also left High Heaven Palace with Hua Qing Si and flew out of the Star Boundary.


In the void, Mi Jinglun suddenly stopped and turned around.


Although he had come here to seek some answers, in reality, he had not gained anything. Xia Ningchang was undoubtedly unaware of Yang Kai’s life or death, she only had absolute confidence in him.


She believed that Yang Kai would return safely one day, just like how he had suddenly killed his way back from the depths of the Ink Battlefield and quelled the battle in the Mysterious Nether Territory.


It could be said that this Madam Xia had a blind faith in this man, but there was nothing wrong with that.


However, as the leader of the Human Race’s forces, Mi Jinglun couldn’t afford to have any delusions. He had to be prepared for the worst. If something really happened to Yang Kai, what if he died somewhere unknown?


War could not tolerate any unrealistic fantasies!


The Human Race does not consist of a single person, but all of them. Over the years, Yang Kai had done more than enough for the Human Race. It was because of his actions that the Human Race had been able to develop steadily for thousands of years and build up its current strength.


If even this couldn’t defeat the Black Ink Clan, it would be a sign of the Human Race’s lack of effort. As the favored children of this era, they naturally had to bear the responsibility. If they couldn’t survive this disaster, they were destined to be abandoned by this era.


In the end, this era still belonged to the Human Race!


In the void, a figure rapidly flew through the air, surrounded by a desolate Universe World, as well as a vast sky filled with unknown dangers.


Thunder Shadow’s voice rang out, “Second Brother, are you lost?”


Fang Tianci said gloomily, “Boss said to go in the opposite direction, so that’s how I travel. This is the end of the world, so it should be quite far from the 3000 Worlds. Don’t be impatient!”


“Why don’t I take charge?” Thunder Shadow suggested, mainly because he had been holding back for too long and wanted to come out and relax.


“You don’t understand the Dao of Space, so having you take charge will only slow things down.”


“Very well, you may continue.”
