MARTIAL PEAK 5945


The hall was filled with noise, but Yang Kai turned a deaf ear to it and simply stared upwards, waiting for an answer.


After a long time, a response came from under the veil, “It’s not impossible for me to remove my veil.”


The noise came to an abrupt halt as everyone stared upwards, as if an invisible hand had gripped their necks.


No one had expected the Saintess to agree to such a ridiculous request.


Yang Kai smiled, “It sounds like there are some conditions?”


“Naturally,” The Saintess nodded as if it was only natural, “Since you made a request of me, I naturally have to make a request of you.”


Yang Kai said seriously, “I’m all ears.”


The Saintess’ soft voice rang out, “Zuo Wuyou has sent a message saying that you are the Holy Child of the Spirit Religion and that your appearance coincides with the Spirit Religion's prophecy, but whether it is true or not is still difficult to determine. The first Saintess also left behind a test for the Holy Child.”


Yang Kai’s expression changed as he understood her meaning, “You want me to pass that test?”


“Precisely.”


Yang Kai’s expression suddenly became strange.


According to what Chu Anhe said, the Holy Child of the Spirit Religion had secretly appeared ten years ago, and this matter had received the approval of many of the higher-ups of the Spirit Religion. In other words, the Holy Child had definitely passed the test and his identity was unquestionable.


So from the perspective of the Spirit Religion, this Holy Child who had appeared out of nowhere was definitely a fake.


Even so, the Saintess still wanted him to pass this test…


This was quite intriguing.


Yang Kai glanced over from the corner of his eyes and noticed that the few Flag Masters standing at the front all wore surprised expressions, obviously not expecting the Saintess to make such a request.


Interesting, this matter shouldn’t have been discussed by the upper echelons of the Spirit Religion before, it was more like the Saintess' idea.


In this situation, Yang Kai could only think of one possibility.


The Saintess was certain that it would be difficult for him to pass this test. If he couldn’t complete her request, she naturally wouldn’t need to show her face.


With this thought in mind, Yang Kai agreed, “Of course I can. Shall we begin now?”


The Saintess shook her head and said, “The test is sealed in a secret place. It will take some time for the secret place to open, so you should go and rest for a while. Once the Spirit Religion's preparations are complete, we will call for you.”


Saying so, she turned to Ma Chengze and said, “Flag Master Ma, I’ll have to trouble you to arrange a place for him.”


Ma Chengze stepped forward and accepted the order, “Yes!”


He called out to Yang Kai, “Little friend, come with me.”


Yang Kai glanced at the Saintess again, cupped his fists, and left.


After he left, one of the Flag Master asked, “Your Highness, why do you suddenly want him to go to the sealed land to try out that test?”


The Saintess explained, “He has already obtained the hearts of the people and the blessings of the world, so it’s not easy to dispose of him as we pleases, nor is it easy to expose him. Since that’s the case, let him go to the sealed land. That place is a test left behind by the first Saintess, and only a true Holy Child can pass it.”


Suddenly, someone understood, “Since he is an imposter, it will be difficult for him to pass. If we deal with him later, we will have an explanation for the disciples.”


The Saintess replied, “That’s exactly what I was thinking.”


“Your Highness has thought things through thoroughly!”



Inside the Divine Palace, Yang Kai followed Ma Chengze and suddenly said, “Old Ma, I’m a person of unknown origins, shouldn’t your Spirit Religion first ask about my origins and background? Why would the Saintess suddenly want me to go to that sealed land?”


“You… what did you call me?” Ma Chengze steadied himself and stared at him in shock.


“Old Ma? Is there a problem?”


Ma Chengze was so angry he laughed, “What’s the problem? This king is a Flag Master and a peak Immortal Ascension stage master, even if you don’t call me Senior, you should at least call me Flag Master Ma, right?”


“Then Flag Master Ma it is,” Yang Kai readily agreed, he would not be able to bear calling him Senior.


Ma Chengze glared at him angrily before continuing forward, “Originally, I didn’t want to say anything to you, but for some reason, this King found you quite pleasing to the eye, so I decided to tell you a few things. There’s no need to investigate your identity and background. If you can pass that test, you’ll be the Holy Child of the Spirit Religion, but if you don’t pass, you’ll be a dead man. So what is the need to test your identity or background?”


Yang Kai pondered for a moment before saying, “That’s true.” Changing the subject, he asked, “Have you seen what the Saintess looks like?”


Ma Chengze shook his head, “Boy, I don’t think you’re some kind of perverted person, why are you so curious about the Saintess’ appearance?”


Yang Kai said seriously, “My explanation in the main hall is my explanation now.”


“To verify the conjecture that concerns the well-being of the world?” Ma Chengze turned his head and asked.


Yang Kai nodded.


Ma Chengze couldn’t be bothered to say anything more to him, so he stopped and pointed to a courtyard in front of him, “Rest here for a while, the Spirit Religion has already made preparations and will call you over. If there’s anything you need help with, call for help. If there’s nothing else, don’t wander around.”


Saying so, he turned around and left.


Yang Kai watched him leave and walked straight towards the courtyard. There were already servants from the Spirit Religion waiting for him, so after making some arrangements, Yang Kai entered a room to rest.


Although the Spirit Religion had determined that he was a fake Holy Child, they didn’t treat him harshly because of this. The environment of his residence was extremely good, and he had more than a dozen servants to order around.


However, Yang Kai wasn’t in the mood to indulge in pleasure. Inside the room, he sat down cross-legged and began cultivating.


The thirty kilometer long street had allowed him to obtain the favor of the people and the World Will, allowing him to feel a vague connection with this world.


This caused his suppressed strength to become somewhat restless.


This world had Immortal Ascension stage cultivators, but for some reason, after arriving here, his strength had been suppressed to the True Element stage.


He wanted to see if he could break through this kind of suppression. Even if he couldn’t restore his strength, raising it to the Immortal Ascension stage was still a good idea.


After a round of hard work, the result was still a failure.


Yang Kai felt as if there was an invisible shackle that locked down his strength.


“Where is this?” A voice suddenly rang out.


“You’re awake?” Yang Kai showed a look of joy and reached out to grab the jade pendant hanging around his neck.


This item was given to him by Wu Kuang when he entered the Space-Time River. It contained Wu Kuang’s soul clone, but after entering this place, he had fallen silent. Yang Kai had been using his own strength to nourish it for the past few days, allowing him to finally recover and have the ability to communicate with him.


“This place is a bit strange,” Wu Kuang’s voice continued.


“Yes,” Yang Kai replied casually, “I still don’t understand what mysteries this world contains or why Mu’s Space-Time River has such a place. Do you know anything about it?”


“I’m not too sure either. Mu left some things behind in the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, but as for what they are, it’s difficult for me to find out. I’m afraid even Cang and the others don’t know.”


Just as Wu Kuang had said before, if it weren’t for the sudden uprising of the Ink Force inside the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, he wouldn’t have even noticed Mu’s trump card.


Now, although he had noticed it, it was unclear. This was also the reason why he had left a wisp of his Divine Soul by Yang Kai’s side. He also wanted to see how profound it was.


“This is difficult…” Yang Kai frowned.


“Wait…” Wu Kuang suddenly seemed to have discovered something, his tone filled with surprise, “I seem to have felt some kind of guidance!”


“What guidance?” Yang Kai’s expression changed.


“I’m not too sure, it came from the main body,” Wu Kuang replied.


Yang Kai suddenly understood. Wu Kuang was in charge of the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, so logically speaking, he should be able to clearly sense everything inside the Great Restriciton. It was through this layer of convenience that he was able to protect the Withdrawing Black Ink Army from harm.


Right now, his main body must have sensed something, but because he was separated by the Space-Time River, it was difficult for him to transmit this guidance to his soul clone, causing Wu Kuang’s soul clone's perception to become blurry.


“What is the general direction?” Yang Kai asked.


“In this city, but not here.”


“Let’s go take a look,” Yang Kai said as he activated Thunder Shadow’s Natal Divine Ability to conceal his figure and aura.



In the deepest part of the Divine Palace, a beautiful figure was quietly waiting.


Someone called out from outside, “Saintess, Flag Master Li requests an audience.”


The figure raised her head and said, “Let her in.”


“Yes!”


A moment later, the flag master of the Li Banner entered and bowed, “Greetings, Your Highness.”


The Saintess smiled and raised her hand, “There’s no need to be so polite, Flag Master Li. Have you investigated the matter?”


“Reporting to Your Highness, it has been investigated.”


Li Feiyu was just about to report when the Saintess raised her hand and said, “Wait.”


She took out a piece of jade and poured her power into it, instantly isolating the hall from the outside world.


After the spirit array was activated, the Saintess suddenly changed her serious expression and pulled Li Feiyu’s hand to sit down, smiling as she said, “Sister Li has worked hard, what did you find?”


Li Feiyu smiled bitterly. In front of outsiders, no matter how amiable the Saintess appeared, it was impossible to conceal her dignified temperament. Only she knew that in private, the Saintess was a completely different person.


“I found a lot of things,” Li Feiyu recalled the information she had obtained and became slightly absent-minded.


After entering the city, Ma Chengze had accompanied Yang Kai while she led Zuo Wuyou away. As the Flag Master of the Li Banner, she was responsible for gathering information on various aspects, so naturally she had many things to ask Zuo Wuyou.


Therefore, she had not appeared in the main hall.


“Let’s hear it,” The Saintess seemed quite interested.


Li Feiyu said, “According to Zuo Wuyou, it was only a coincidence that he ran into that person called Yang Kai this time. At that time, they had exposed their whereabouts and were surrounded by the people from the Black Ink Religion…”


She told her all the information she had learned from Zuo Wuyou and learned that Yang Kai, with his True Element stage cultivation, had killed Yan Peng, injured Xue Ji, and forced the Earth Faction Commander to retreat. When she heard this, the Saintess’ expression couldn’t help changing.


“Are you serious, Sister Li? He’s only at the True Element stage, how could he have such great skill?” The Saintess couldn’t help asking.


“There’s nothing wrong with Zuo Wuyou, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with what he said, so all of this must have really happened in the past,” Li Feiyu sighed. When she heard these things, she also found it hard to believe.
