Yang Kai followed Bai Lu, climbing the spiraling stairs, all the way up.
After walking for a full quarter of an hour, the stairs came to the end, and there was another hall in front of him. The side door of the hall opened along the trunk, and light came in from outside.
Yang Kai glanced outside and found that this place was already several thousand feet above the ground, and everything under the ground was hazy and unclear.
After arriving here, there was a real gaze locked on him immediately.
Yang Kai was immediately alert and turned his head to look, only to see a black-haired middle-aged man in plain clothes with a plain appearance, standing on the side with his hands on his back, smiling and looking at him.
But Yuan Fei, who came here earlier, stood aside respectfully, with a restrained look.
The Lord of the Heavenly Monster Mountain! This idea popped out of Yang Kai's mind inexplicably. Although he couldn't see anything from the middle-aged man that made his eyes shine, the other party was like an ordinary person in the crowd, but when he saw him, Yang Kai is still able to be sure, and it was the 3rd-order emperor realm that made the move before, and the master of this Heavenly Monster Mountain. Similarly, he is also the father of the purple raccoon!
Yang Kai stood in awe, bowed with his clasped fist and said, "Junior Yang Kai, I have seen senior!"
Hearing the words, the middle-aged man nodded slightly, but did not speak. Instead, he slowly raised his hand and pointed at Yang Kai far away.
Yang Kai was awkward. He didn't figure out what he meant by this action, and suddenly his complexion changed drastically, and he hurriedly mobilized the power of the divine soul, turning it into a layer of invisible protection, and resisting him.
A loud bang came, a burst of vigor hit the face, easily breaking Yang Kai's protection.
Yang Kai was horrified, and stepped back.
But soon, he stopped his figure. Because he found that the opponent's attack was easy to retract, but he broke his own defense and didn't do it anymore. In other words, his move did not threaten him at all, it seemed to be just a test...
"Senior, what does this mean?" Yang Kai frowned and asked, the opponent was a powerhouse of the 3rd-order emperor realm. What is he trying to do? He could see through his cultivation level at a glance.
"Huh?" The middle-aged man raised his brows, and looked at Yang Kai suspiciously: "Why don't you use the Divine Soul Artifact?"
Yang Kai replied: "I met a strong enemy before, and the artifact was destroyed, and it is no longer available..."
Before he finished speaking, Yang Kai suddenly widened his eyes and stared at the middle-aged man in amazement, saying, "Senior, you..."
At this moment, he suddenly came back to his senses, and the other party actually mentioned the words Divine Soul Artifact in the words just now!
This is not what the martial artist of the Divine Movement Mirror world can understand. Divine Soul Artifact are something that only the outside martial artists have. In the world of Divine Movement Mirror, because of the lack of materials for refining artifacts, they will never have such a thing, let alone insight.
However, the middle-aged man said the name of existence that he shouldn't know.
This made Yang Kai can’t help but feel shocked.
"What?" The middle-aged man smiled slightly, "Do you think I don't know anything?"
Although these words were thoughtless, Yang Kai understood what he meant, and was stunned on the spot. He don't know how to reply.
"But so it seems..." The middle-aged man nodded slightly and said, "You really are not from this world."
Yang Kai took a deep breath, clasped his fist and said, "Senior have bright eyes. It's just... how Senior..."
The middle-aged man smiled slightly, and stretched out his hand, a long sword suddenly appeared in his hand. The brilliance of the long sword was flowing, the energy fluctuated, and it seemed extremely extraordinary.
This long sword. It wasn't condensed by divine soul energy at all, but the real...
"Divine Soul Artifact?" Yang Kai's eyes were about to bulge out, and he couldn't believe everything he saw.
In this Divine Movement Mirror world, there was a martial artist who took out a mysterious soul treasure, and it was still a divine soul artifact. Judging from the fluctuations emanating from the long sword, this sword has reached the level of the emperor treasure. Above the sword body, the emperor prestige is diffused, and the emperor's intent is overflowing, which complements the aura of the middle-aged man himself.
On the side, Yuan Fei and Bai Lu stared at the long sword closely, looking dizzy.
As capable officers under the Lord of the Heavenly Monster Mountain, the two naturally knew that the Lord have such a treasure in his hands, but even with their qualifications, they would not have the opportunity to see it.
In the past few hundred years, the two have seen it twice in total, and even this time today, only the third times.
Yuan Fei and Bai Lu didn't know what this treasure was and where it came from. They only knew that it was extremely sharp and powerful, and it was more than a little stronger than their own weapons condensed by the power of the divine soul.
They wondered why, facing a human being like Yang Kai who they met for the first time, the lord took out this treasure to show it to him.
Moreover, what does the phrase "not a person of this world" mean?
Looking at each other, they both found the doubt in each other's eyes.
"Yes, this is a Divine Soul Artifact." The middle-aged man nodded when he heard the words, pointed the sword, and gently wiped the edge of the blade. Under the energy resonance, the blade buzzed and seemed to have its own spirituality.
"Eight hundred years ago, I got it from a guy named Wen Zishan." The middle-aged man smiled slightly, and paid close attention to the changes in Yang Kai's expression as he spoke. He slowly said, "I don't know if you recognize him."
"It turned out to be Palace Master Wen..." The corner of Yang Kai's mouth twitched, and suddenly he understand.
Because according to Wen Zishan, it was the time when he came to the Azure Sun Temple eight hundred years ago that he discover Divine Movement Mirror and stay in the Azure Sun Mountain Range.
At that time, Wen Zishan probably also entered the Divine Movement Mirror and then traveled here, and met the middle-aged man. As for how this artifact reached the middle-aged man hands, Yang Kai did not know.
"That's a very interesting guy..." The middle-aged man said with a look of memory appeared on his face, "It was a good time with this king, this long sword is also a bet with him. But according to his statement, at that time, this artifact was only the principle source grade high-rank, and it was promoted to the emperor treasure after hundreds of years of sacrifice and cultivation."
Yang Kai thoughtfully said: "It seems that senior know a lot about the outside world."
The middle-aged man laughed: "This king just filled a few jars of Monkey God Liquor for Wen Zishan. He almost didn't tell the color of his underwear. How much do you think this king know?"
Yang Kai heard this. His face twitched. But this way, he was completely relieved, and he didn't need to worry about his safety, because the middle-aged man had no malice towards him, and he also knew the Palace Master Wen and the outside world. By just punching this point, he would not attack him.
"Dare to ask how senior are called?" Yang Kai asked with a straight face and folded his fists.
"This king is called Yi Quan!" When the middle-aged man replied, he had collected the artifact, and continued: "Listening to Yuan Fei, you saved that kid's life outside?"
"It's just a coincidence." Yang Kai told the truth.
"That's also a life-saving grace." Yi Quan said, reaching out and leaning behind him, and raised a small figure.
Yang Kai looked around and found that it was a child about two years old. Wearing shorts, the face is pink, and the exposed hands and legs are as delicate as white lotus root.
This is a little boy with a soaring braid on his head and looks extremely cute.
"Little purple raccoon?" Yang Kai looked at him, raising his brows.
The little guy seemed to be a little shy, after taking a look at Yang Kai. He quickly hid behind Yi Quan and grabbed the corner of his father's clothes with his little hands.
Upon seeing this posture, Yang Kai was sure that he was the purple raccoon.
But now he is undoubtedly embarrassed to be as close to Yang Kai as before.
"What did Father tell you?" Yi Quan saw it, and stretched out his hand to pat the back of the head of the little purple raccoon, and flashed a staggered shot of him from behind.
Bai Lu see this from the side. Suddenly revealed a distressed color.
The little guy was pouting, as if he was about to cry.
"Huh?" Yi Quan snorted softly.
The sound scared the purple raccoon, and quickly stopped crying, sniffed, and looked at Yang Kai. He babbled a few times.
"No need for thanks, you also helped me a lot. If i really want to talk about it, I should thank you." Yang Kai looked at the little guy and said softly.
"The grace of life-saving should be remembered for life, it is unforgettable!" Yuan Qi said while stroking the little guy's head, and said earnestly: "Remember this!"
The purple raccoon nodded quickly.
"Bai Lu." Yi Quan called again.
"Subordinate is here." Bai Lu took a step forward quickly.
"Take the young master out to play, watch him carefully, don't let him run around again. I have something to talk with this little brother..." Yi Quan ordered.
"Yes!" Bai Lu replied, and then beckoned to the little guy.
This time he was very obedient, trotting obediently in front of Bai Lu, and stretched out his little hand to hold her. Before leaving, he looked back at Yang Kai and Yuan Fei followed out.
After leaving the hall, Yian Fei asked Bai Lu in a low voice, "Do you understand what the lord said?"
Bai Lu shook her head, turned to look at him and said: "You understand?"
Yuan Fei had a black line on his face and said, "You don't understand, how can I understand? But... I vaguely remember that a human race came here 800 years ago and had a long conversation with the lord for three days and three nights. Then left."
"Well, I also remember that that guy is very strong, not inferior to the Lord." Bai Lu also nodded slightly.
"It's weird, what is the Divine Soul Artifact? Why does the Lord’s words seem to mean that the Human Race kid also has it? But why even someone as strong as you and me don’t understand it?"
"What to worry about? If he want, the lord will tell us." Bai Lu glared at him.
"Yes." Yuan Fei nodded.
"Yeah..." The little guy who was led by Bai Lu suddenly interrupted at this moment.
Upon hearing this, Bai Lu said in astonishment: "Young Master, you mean, that kid named Yang Kai used the Divine Soul Artifact during battle?"
"Yeah!" The little guy nodded vigorously.
"Just talk about what it looks like." Yuan Fei suddenly became energetic and asked for a while.
No one expect that the little guy will just glanced at him, and he gave a cold snort and turned his head aside, as if he didn't care about him.
