MARTIAL PEAK 5961


The young Holy Child was somewhat at a loss. Since he was brought back by Sikong Nan, he had been secretly cultivating in the Sect and had not interacted with the outside world for the past ten years. As soon as he came out of seclusion, he was pushed to the front line and used his status as the savior of the world to lead the Spirit Religion's army into a life or death battle with the Black Ink Religion.


It could be said that even now, he was still somewhat confused about the current situation, but this didn’t stop him from enjoying the joy of this great victory.


Under countless pairs of eyes, he raised his hand slightly and gently clenched his fist.


The cheers came to an abrupt halt as everyone stared at him.


He whispered, “May the light be eternal!”


After a short silence, the waves of cheers became even more violent.


In front of the crowd, the Saintess and Li Feiyu looked at each other and smiled knowingly.


Originally, pushing this fake Holy Child to the front line was only to facilitate the army of the Spirit Religion, but after interacting with him for a while, the two of them found that he had done a good job.


More importantly, his temperament was simple and pure.


Such a person, with his current great achievements, was more than capable of assuming the position of Holy Child. Presumably, the real Holy Child, who had been hiding in the shadows, wouldn’t mind.


“Holy Child,” The Zhen Banenr Flag Master Yu Daochi stepped forward, “Right now, the Black Ink Religion's army has been completely wiped out, but there are still some survivors. At this moment, they are standing in front of the Black Ink Abyss. Holy Child, please step forward and investigate to determine whether they are dead or alive.”


The young Holy Child asked curiously, “Is there anyone alive from the Black Ink Religion?”


Yu Daochi said, “It’s that Yu Faction Commander Xue Ji and her four Blood Slaves!”


“It’s her,” The Holy Child suddenly understood, “Then we must go see her. I heard that she secretly killed many of the Black Ink Religion's masters this time, even Yu Buzhou died at her hands. If it weren’t for her help, the Spirit Religion would not have been able to win so easily.”


No matter what kind of person Xue Ji was in the past, in this war against the Black Ink Religion, she had put in a lot of effort, so no matter what, this made the young Holy Child have a good impression of her and feel that he should thank her in person.


Under the leadership of the Holy Child and Saintess, the group of Spirit Religion masters immediately flew towards the Black Ink Abyss.


When they arrived, they discovered that the atmosphere here wasn’t very good.


Xue Ji and the four Blood Slaves stood quietly as a group of Spirit Religion masters confronted them.


Seeing the arrival of the Holy Child and the others, the group of masters all breathed a sigh of relief. After Xue Ji killed Yu Buzhou, her title as the number one master in the world had been firmly established. When these Immortal Ascension masters from the Spirit Religion faced her, all of them felt a mountain of pressure, even though Xue Ji just stood there quietly, not making any unnecessary movements.


The crowd parted on their own accord and the Holy Child walked towards Xue Ji.


Yu Daochi whispered, “Holy Child, be careful.”


The young Holy Child nodded slightly before standing not far away from Xue Ji and bowing solemnly, “Spirit Religion's Wu Ding greets Senior Xue Ji.”


Xue Ji raised her eyes slightly and looked Wu Ding up and down before asking with a smile, “Are you that Holy Child?”


Wu Ding scratched his head, “Everyone calls me that, so it should be.”


Xue Ji was stunned by his tender actions for a moment before shaking her head with a smile, “It’s a lot worse.”


Wu Ding respectfully replied, “Senior’s teachings are correct. This Junior is still a greenhorn and has yet to fully understand the ways of the world. If I have offended Senior, please forgive me.”


Xue Ji looked at him helplessly and sighed, “It’s not what you think…” She knew that this young Holy Child had misunderstood something.


What she had just said was that compared to her unfathomable Master, this young Holy Child was far inferior.


Although Yang Kai had never said anything to her, how could Xue Ji not know that the real Holy Child in the prophecy was undoubtedly her Master, and the one in front of her was just the face of the Spirit Religion.


Originally, she had been somewhat hostile towards this person and felt that her Master’s glory had been stolen by someone else, so she was somewhat indignant.


However, looking at this Holy Child’s performance, she couldn’t muster any hostility.


The young Holy Child scratched his head again and was about to say something when he heard Yu Daochi shout, “Demon girl, quickly surrender!”


Xue Ji turned her head and glanced at him, but she had no intention of responding to him. Instead, she turned to Li Feiyu and asked, “Sister Li, is the Spirit Religion going to burn the bridge after crossing it? If that’s the case, please say something Sister Li, so I can prepare myself.”


Li Feiyu immediately shook her head, “I don’t have such intentions, don’t think too much about it!”


The group of flag masters were all confused, vaguely feeling that there was something they didn’t know.


Yu Daochi frowned, “What do you mean?”


Li Feiyu explained, “Xue Ji has already abandoned the darkness and turned to the light. Previously, under the Saintess' orders, I secretly contacted Xue Ji and sent her all kinds of intelligence, allowing her to assassinate the masters of the Black Ink Religion. As a result, the advancement of the army has been extremely smooth. Everyone, Xue Ji’s contributions to the Spirit Religion’s victory in this one month battle are undeniable.”


As soon as these words were spoken, the crowd burst into an uproar.


Sikong Nan muttered, “Why haven’t we heard of such a thing?”


The Saintess smiled and explained, “This matter is of great importance, so it is kept a secret from the public. Please forgive me.”


Since even the Saintess had admitted to this matter, it seemed that this matter was indeed true, and judging from the current results, Xue Ji had indeed made a great contribution.


For a time, many people looked at her kindly.


To renounce the darkness and seek the light was something that was popular everywhere.


Yu Daochi couldn’t help saying with a black face, “Saintess’ actions are too reckless. Even if this matter is kept a secret from us, you shouldn’t keep it a secret from the Holy Child. After all, the Holy Child is the savior of the world.”


The young Holy Child waved his hand and said, “It doesn’t matter, I just came out of seclusion and haven’t figured out anything yet. Sister Saintess can decide the matters of the Spirit Religion.”


Yu Daochi was immediately speechless, feeling that this Holy Child was simply a pile of mud he couldn’t even lift up…


After a moment of silence, he said, “Since that’s the case, you may leave. You are a member of the Black Ink Religion, and you were previously the Commander of the Yu Faction. Although you have contributed greatly to the Spirit Religion, the Spirit Religion cannot accept you.”


Xue Ji smiled and said, “I don’t want to join you either.”


Yu Daochi wore a puzzled look, “If you don’t want to join the Spirit Religion, why did you betray the Black Ink Religion?”


Xue Ji’s face showed a look of yearning as she replied, “Because I have a better target to follow.”


Everyone was shocked, almost wondering if Xue Ji was wrong.


A powerful person like her also had a goal to follow? And it was precisely because of this goal that she betrayed the Black Ink Religion?


Yu Daochi couldn’t help feeling a bit irritated and waved his hand, “No matter what, from now on, you and my Spirit Religion will not interfere with each other’s business, so don’t try to commit crimes just because your cultivation is high. You may leave.”


Xue Ji shook her head, “I can’t leave.” She paused for a moment before asking, “You want to explore the secrets of the Black Ink Abyss, right?”


Yu Daochi said, “The Black Ink Religion has been destroyed, and the Black Ink Abyss is the source of the Black Ink Religion. No matter what, we must investigate it thoroughly and find a way to seal this place so that the Black Ink Religion doesn’t rise again.”


The group of flag masters all nodded. They really did have such intentions.


Xue Ji said, “Then wait a moment, someone told me to stand guard here, no one is allowed to approach the Black Ink Abyss!”


Yu Daochi immediately flew into a rage, “Xue Ji, considering what you did, allowing you to leave safely is already an act of benevolence, don’t push your luck.”


Xue Ji smiled charmingly, “But this is the order I received. If you want to enter the Black Ink Abyss, kill me first.”


The Saintess suddenly became somewhat excited, “Is that person inside the Black Ink Abyss?”


She obviously knew who Xue Ji was talking about. No wonder there had been no news of him since the start of the battle. It turned out he had come to the Black Ink Abyss.


Xue Ji nodded lightly.


The Saintess asked seriously, “Did he say anything else?”


Xue Ji replied, “He said that the depths of Black Ink Abyss are extremely dangerous, I wanted to help him, but he said that even if I entered, it would only lead to death. He told me to guard this place and not allow anyone to approach the Black Ink Abyss.”


The Saintess nodded slightly.


The group of Spirit Religion masters who heard this were all confused. Sikong Nan only felt his back becoming more hunched as he couldn’t help asking, “Saintess, is there something we don’t know about again?”


Initially, after winning a great battle, the Spirit Religion had dominated the world, so everyone was happy.


However, it was only at this moment that everyone discovered that there seemed to be some turbulent undercurrents in the dark.


The Saintess didn’t know how to explain, so she could only say, “It’s not convenient to talk about this matter. Since it’s that person’s idea, everyone can wait a moment. Holy Child, what do you think?”


Holy Child nodded his head like a chicken pecking rice, “Sister Saintess is right!”


Yu Daochi looked at the young Holy Child with a look of disappointment, really wanting to tell him that lust was the true essence of bone scraping.


Under the Black Ink Abyss, all the Apostles were killed and Yang Kai walked towards the Profound Gate.


Soon, he arrived.


It was an extremely profound gate that stood quietly in an open space. The two doors were filled with profound and complicated patterns, each of which seemed to be the essence of the Great Dao.


Looking at this door, Yang Kai suddenly understood.


This was not something that could be refined by man, but rather a supreme treasure born from nature.


The first light in the world, the first darkness, was born from this door.


At this moment, the two doors weren’t tightly shut, instead leaving behind a small gap where an extremely dark power was stirring.


It was a trace of Black Ink’s Source!


Sealed inside the Profound Gate, the Source was unable to escape, but the weak energy it released affected the entire Black Ink Abyss and gave birth to the Black Ink Religion.


Mu had said that all kinds of killing, schemes, jealousy, greed, and even anything that could cause the darkness of human nature could strengthen Black Ink’s power.


As such, after Black Ink developed its own sentience, its growth was extremely fast, because all living beings had no shortage of darkness.


Staring at the Profound Gate, Yang Kai slowly stretched out his hand and pressed it against the door.


In an instant, his body trembled.


A great cold aura enveloped him, and under the influence of this cold aura, all kinds of negative emotions emerged from the depths of his heart.


When he was bullied and hunted, when he was still weak and being seige by powerful foe. All kinds of unpleasant memories flooded his mind at this moment.
