"Jiang Family!" Yang Kai snorted coldly, "No, I came here to find someone."
"Senior is really not a member of the Jiang family?" Zhou Kang's voice suddenly rose a little bit, as if he couldn't believe it. Then, even the other martial artist looked over at Yang Kai with joy, and their gazes bloomed with shining light, as if seeing some hope in the darkness.
"Why would i lie to you." Yang Kai shouted impatiently.
"I believe in Senior!" Zhou Kang didn't dare to question anymore, shouting: "Since Senior is not the Jiang family, please ask Senior to save me from the sea of suffering."
"Please, let us out!"
Suddenly there was a cry for help from all around, and the martial artist who were handcuffed and bound from their freedom all looked towards Yang Kai pleadingly.
Zhou Kang said: "Don’t hide from the senior, most of us are scattered martial artists with no relatives and no background, and some of them are members of small families. They were caught here at different times by the Jiang family and mined minerals for them. I was punished for a little resistance, and some of my brothers have even died. I can't stand the torture, and I'm miserable!"
"What minerals are you mining here?" Yang Kai frowned.
"That's it, senior please look over!" Zhou Kang quickly took out something from the basket next to him and handed it to Yang Kai respectfully.
Yang Kai took a look, and suddenly whispered: "Purifying Mind Jade?"
He recognized this thing as a kind of extremely rare jade, which can help the martial artist to purify the heart and mind, and it has a special effect. When the martial artist is cultivating in retreat or breaking through the realm. If a piece of this kind of thing can be worn on the body, it can offset the harm of the inner [Heart Demon] to a great extent.
If it is worn all year round, there are some unknown benefits.
Because of this, this kind of jade is very expensive. A piece the size of a thumb nail costs two to three thousand source crystals, and the piece that Zhou Kang picked up at will is the size of a palm, and at least it is worth 100,000 source crystals!
Not to mention that the basket was filled with more Purifying Mind Jade!
It turned out to be a pit of Purifying Mind Pit!
No wonder the Jiang family acted so sneaky and didn't want to be discovered. Such a huge benefit, if it is known to other forces. The Jiang family alone could not resist. Even the City Lord’s Mansion must step in to get a share!
However, mining this kind of thing definitely requires some labor, and the Jiang family does not have enough labor. They can only hit the idea of using other people!
Those cultivation level below the Saint King Realm. A martial artist who has no background and no family is the best candidate.
Although Maplewoods City is not big in the entire South Territory. The overall level of the martial artist is not high, but there are many people coming and going every day like a crucian carp crossing the river. From time to time, there are few martial artists below the Saint King realm, and probably no one will know if they were gone.
People like Zhou Kang were all caught in the mine to work hard.
Zhang Ruoxi is obviously the same!
In a short period of time, Yang Kai understood everything, and then he realized why the Jiang family did not want to reveal Zhang Ruoxi’s whereabouts, but instead pretended to be ignorant when he went to Jiang’s family to inquire. Even when he saw the right conditions, they was not moved.
It turns out that they dare not reveal the secret of this mine!
After understanding this, a cold light flashed in Yang Kai's eyes.
"Senior..." Zhou Kang looked at Yang Kai cautiously, not knowing what he was thinking at the moment.
"If you leave these things behind, you can go." Yang Kai waved his hand.
"Huh?" Zhou Kang was taken aback, looking a little at a loss.
Yang Kai raised his hand, and the golden light flew in the mine for a while, and the golden blood thread shot out. With a clacking sound, all the bracelets and anklets that restrained Zhou Kang's freedom were cut in two.
"I said you can go, are you willing to stay?" Yang Kai glanced at Zhou Kang, and did not wait for him to say anything. He just took in all the Purifying Mind Jade mined from the ground. After stuffing it into his own space ring, he flew forward without stopping.
After a while, there were bursts of cheering and excitement not far behind Yang Kai. Seeing that those bracelets and ankle chains were cut off, how could those martial artist doubt Yang Kai's words? The impatient person has rushed towards the exit.
"By the way, senior, don't go deep inside, the innermost is strange!" Zhou Kang was also delighted for a while, but as if thinking of something, he hurriedly shouted at Yang Kai.
But where is Yang Kai's trace, he didn't know where he went deep.
"Senior should have heard it, right?" Zhou Kang tilted his head and thought for a while, then he didn't have the mind to think about it anymore. It has been two full years since he was arrested by the Jiang family. He thought he would not be able to escape here in his entire life. I expect he will die here, but he didn't expect to get help from the noble character today, and there will be a day to see the sun again.
Excited, Zhou Kang hurriedly ran out, shouting loudly as he ran.
In a short while, the entire mine was boiling, and countless martial artist who were caught here to mine minerals rushed in desperation, venting the joy of regaining freedom.
In the depths of the mine, Yang Kai followed the little beast all the way forward, passing along the road, and took all the mined Purifying Mind Jade into his bag. At the same time, he also used some means to cut off the bracelets and anklets of the mine slaves.
At the same time, somewhere in the deepest part of the mine, a delicate figure was rushing inward.
Along with her movements, there was a sound of clattering, which was the sound made by the impact of the handcuffed bracelet and anklet.
The small body was in ragged clothes, unkempt and covered face, and her face was dark, and her original appearance couldn't be seen. But from her eyes that kept turning back and showing panic, a trace of Zhang Ruoxi can still be discerned.
Surviving in this mine is not easy. Since being sent here a month ago, Zhang Ruoxi has been exposed to darkness and fear that she has never encountered in the past ten years.
Let’s not mention the harsh demands of the Jiang family. You must dig enough minerals every day, otherwise you will be punished. The miners are not easy to provoke. After being caught here and tortured, The temperaments of those mine slaves have all changed, and suddenly seeing a little girl who is single and weak, naturally many people are very interested in her.
It is also fortunate that Zhang Ruoxi now has the cultivation level of 2nd-order Saint King Stage peak, otherwise there would be no way to gain a foothold here, and there would be no bones left.
After a few short-eyed guys coveted Zhang Ruoxi's beauty and wanted to make a move on her, but were given a severe lesson by her, no one dared to trouble her anymore.
In order to avoid similar troubles, she deliberately made herself look bad. As expected, no one became interested in her anymore, and she was peaceful for a while.
However, the daily work of mining ore is extremely difficult. Those Purifiying Mind Jade is embedded in the rock, and it takes a lot of effort to mine it.
In just one month, the little girl took off several layers of skin on her hands and feet, and her body, which was not plump, became thinner. After working every day, she shed tears and endured pain into sleep. When she wake up, she have to continue to endure the painful life.
She was spoiled and raised in the Zhang family since she was a child, and was regarded as the jewel in the palm of her mistress. Zhang Ruoxi had never thought about such a dark place in this world!
She missed her grandmother, she miss her aunt, and everyone in the Zhang family.
Every time, another face flashed in front of her eyes.
It was Mr. Yang who was kind to her Zhang family, Mr. Yang who hadn't come back since going out half a year ago!
She didn’t have much contact with him. Although she had been with him for a while, her Mister never asked her anything, and didn’t even need her to serve him. He just let her live in the cave and cultivate daily. He even gave a precious Spirit Pill.
She can feel that her Mister is a good person and takes good care of her.
She worked hard to cultivate and didn't dare to slack off, because her Mister said that in the future there might be places where he might need her help. She wanted to improve her cultivation level as much as possible to repay her Mister's kindness.
"Mister, where are you?" Zhang Ruoxi shouted in her heart, staggering around in the mine tunnels, avoiding chase from behind with the help of her familiarity with the mine tunnels.
At the most dangerous juncture in her life, there was only one person in her mind, hoping that person could descend in front of her like a god, blocking the violent storm and bringing absolute safety to herself.
But she knew it was impossible. The mine was so hidden that no one would be able to discover it.
"You are dead, lowly maid, try to escape, if i catch you, you will have to taste all the torture in the world!" A low roar like a devil came from behind.
Zhang Ruoxi's body trembled abruptly, and her heart was overwhelmed with great horror. She only felt that her feet were filled with lead, and she was unable to move.
The shoes had long been lost in the run, and both feet stepped on the cold and wet mine tunnel. The sharp stones pierced both feet with blood, and the pain was numbing. Zhang Ruoxi stepped mechanically and rushed towards the side tunnel.
When she fell and got up again, her eyes were suddenly blurred, and she almost passed out.
Biting the tip of her tongue fiercely, a tingling sensation came, and Zhang Ruoxi's mind suddenly regained after a moment. After recognizing the surrounding directions, she gritted her teeth and rushed in one direction.
There is a place that all mine slaves dare not approach.
A few guys once ran there to mine, but never came back. Since then, no one dares to go there anymore.
But now, that deadly place has become her only hope of escape.
In the silent mine tunnel, Zhang Ruoxi's rapid breathing sounded, and her violent heartbeat could even be heard. In the chest, the heartbeat was like a drum, as if it was about to break out of her body.
After rushing for a long time, Zhang Ruoxi suddenly stopped and stared at the front with a look of despair on her face.
There is a dead road ahead, there is no way out!
But at this moment, the sound of footsteps came from behind.
Step by step, as if the god of death was whispering in her ear, Zhang Ruoxi turned pale, her beautiful eyes filled with despair as if covered by black clouds, and there was no trace of light.
