Until a month and a half ago, Gao Xueting suddenly told her that she had some lead, but she had to work with others to solve it. On that day, she left some training resources, and left Earth City, where she has been missing since then.
Seven days ago, Azure Sun Pavilion was suddenly surrounded by the guards of the City Lord's Mansion. Those guards didn't say what happened to Azure Sun Pavilion. They just surrounded it like this, and no one was allowed to enter it.
When she said this, Lu Wen was suddenly startled, and later realized: "Senior Brother Yang, how did you get in? Those from the City Lord's Mansion should be still outside."
Yang Kai grinned and said: "I want to come in, how can the dregs stop it." After a pause, he frowned and said, "Elder Gao left here a month and a half ago, saying that she wants to work with people to crack the animal skin secret. But seven days ago, this place was surrounded by people from the City Lord’s Mansion for no reason..."
Lu Wen said anxiously: "So the junior sister suspected that Elder Gao might have encountered any danger. The reason for surrounding Azure Sun Pavilion was because they were afraid that I would send some news to the outside, after all it can easily be detected that she has some connection with Azure Sun Pavilion."
Yang Kai nodded and said: "You are right, if that's the case... then the news can't get out of Earth City."
Lu Wen said sadly: "Junior Sister is really helpless, she can only use her token to send the message, but i don't expect it to reach Senior Brother Yang."
Yang Kai said, "I also passed by nearby because of something."
If it weren’t for Yang Kai’s coincidence to pass by near Earth City, I’m afraid that Lu Wen would not be able to call any of the Sect's people no matter how the message was sent. After all, this is the East Territory, far away from the Azure Sun Temple, and the people of the Temple will not be here for no reason.
Although Gao Xueting has a cold temperament. But she has always been good to Yang Kai, and the Azure Sun Gold Token was handed over to Yang Kai personally, and she has also moved to accept Yang Kai as a disciple, and teach him how to cultivate.
Now that Gao Xueting may have an accident, Yang Kai certainly can't stand by.
of course. This is just a guess, and it may be a misunderstanding, but the people in the City Lord's Mansion surrounded the Azure Sun Pavilion, which means there is something wrong. If it were not because of Gao Xueting, why would they surround this place for no reason?
"From this point of view. The City Lord's Mansion must have a great relationship with this matter." Yang Kai pondered for a moment, his thoughts gradually smoothed.
Lu Wen said: "Junior sister guessed like this. Elder Gao said before that she would need to work with someone to crack the secret in that animal skin. In Earth City, only the city lord, Zu Hong, is the 1st-order Emperor Realm, Zu Hong is the best candidate."
"Oh?" Yang Kai raised his brows and grinned, "Since there is a suspect, it's much easier."
"Senior Brother Yang, what are you going to do?" Lu Wen looked at him showing a strange smile, and suddenly felt a bad feeling.
"What else can I do? Naturally, I should ask it face-to-face." Yang Kai snorted softly.
Lu Wen was shocked and said, "Senior brother, don’t be impulsive. That Zu Hong is the 1st-order Emperor Realm. He has been promoted for more than forty years and is extremely powerful. Although Senior Brother is the temple Elite Disciple, but with the Emperor Realm..."
She didn't continue speaking, but the meaning was extremely obvious.
She felt that Yang Kai was not Zu Hong's opponent.
Yang Kai smiled and said, "Junior sister Lu, don't worry, that Zu Hong can't enter the eyes of this Senior Brother." There was a pause. He instructed Zhang Ruoxi: "Later, you will take Junior Sister Lu to leave Earth City through the back door and wait for me outside the city. Since something like this has happened here, she don't have to stay any longer. Junior Sister Lu should return to the temple soon."
"Yes, sir!" Zhang Ruoxi said with a solemn expression.
Yang Kai just shook his body and disappeared suddenly.
"This..." Lu Wen looked dull, surprised and anxious. She had clearly told this senior brother Yang that Zu Hong was a powerful emperor realm, so why was he still so passionate?
Zhang Ruoxi smiled slightly, and said, "This elder sister doesn't have to worry about my Sir. Zu Hong can never be his opponent."
"Sir?" Lu Wen looked at Zhang Ruoxi in amazement, and said, "Isn't my sister a disciple of the temple?"
Zhang Ruoxi shook her head and said, "I'm just a member of a small family who was left in the care of my Mister. Only by staying by his side to learn and cultivate can I achieve what I have achieved today."
"Ah!" Lu Wen was shocked.
She could perceive that Zhang Ruoxi's cultivation level was higher than her. She herself was in the 2nd-order Principle Source Stage, and Zhang Ruoxi was more powerful than her, that was the 3rd-order Principle Source Stage. But such a powerhouse was only taught by the Senior Brother Yang? This is not worse than those elite disciples of large sects.
"What is Senior Brother Yang cultivation level?" Lu Wen asked in surprise.
Zhang Ruoxi pursed her mouth and smiled, with a sense of honor, and said lightly: "Mister is already the Emperor Realm."
Lu Wen was completely stunned, and her long hazy eyes gradually shone brightly, and the darkness and anxiety in front of her eyes was swept away.
Outside Azure Sun Pavilion, at the teahouse, Master Jia stared at the door of Azure Sun Pavilion with falcon-like eyes, unconsciously lifted the tea cup in his hand and delivered it to his mouth.
He didn’t know the origin of the couple who had entered Azure Sun Pavilion earlier, and he couldn’t find out what was going on when his subordinates went down to investigate. It seemed that they entered the city only today. This made Master Jia couldn’t help being vigilant, for fear of the couple really has something to do with what the City Lord has ordered.
He dared not let go of any detail, and his spiritual mind was completely immersed in Azure Sun Pavilion.
Suddenly, an extremely uneasy feeling rose from his heart, as if some danger was approaching, making his heart beat wildly.
Before Master Jia could react, he suddenly noticed a stranger appearing out of the corner of his eyes.
He quickly turned his head to look around, his eyes widened, and saw the young man sitting on the chair opposite to him, looking at him with a smile.
"Puff..." Master Jia couldn't hold back, and sprayed a sip of tea at Yang Kai.
Yang Kai waved his hand casually, and the tea mist turned around and sprayed Master Jia himself all over his face.
He stood up in a hurry, wiped his face indiscriminately, and stared at Yang Kai vigilantly, horrified.
With his cultivation level, he didn't realize how this young man appeared in front of him. If the other party wanted to act disadvantage against him, wouldn't he be able to take his own life casually?
At this moment, Master Jia broke out in a cold sweat.
"Sit!" Yang Kai looked at him with a smile, but his eyes were like a poisonous snake, making Master Jia shudder.
The latter hesitated for a while, gritted his teeth, and sat back again, his expression extremely difficult, as if there were countless needles under his butt.
"What is your name?" Yang Kai asked.
"Nice to meet you!" Yang Kai said perfunctorily, his eyes suddenly bursting with cold light, and said: "Master Jia should know, why would I come to see you?"
Jia Si wiped the cold sweat on his forehead and smiled forcefully: "This young master is joking, and Jia is here to drink tea and have a leisury time, but he doesn't know the young master..."
His words suddenly stopped, staring at the palm-sized shield artifact in Yang Kai's hand with scorching eyes, and whispered: "This shield..."
Jia Si's eyesight is naturally good, and it can be seen that the shield in Yang Kai's hand is not low-grade, it seems to be Principle Source Grade high-rank, and it is also a defensive treasure, which can be said to be extremely valuable.
Even though he had the cultivation level of 3rd-order Principle SOurce Stage, he still couldn't help but breathe a little bit shortly.
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and squeezed, the shield was like a rock that had been corroded by wind and rain for thousands of years. It became ashes directly, slipped from the fingertips, and scattered all over the place.
"What shield?" Yang Kai looked at him coldly, "That said, what do you mean with shield?"
Jia Si was trembling, and said nervously: "Nothing, it's nothing."
Yang Kai hummed, "Master Jia seems to be a smart person. It shouldn't be too tiring to communicate. I have few questions. I would like to ask Master Jia to clarify."
Jia Si hurriedly said: "If young master has something to ask, just say it, although Jia is not talented, he has lived here for a long time and knows this Earth city well."
"Very good!" Yang Kai nodded in satisfaction, his eyes were cold, and he said in a condensed voice: "Who asked you to monitor Azure Sun Pavilion here?"
Jia Si said with difficulty: "Yes... the City Lord!"
"Zu Hong asked you to monitor Azure Sun Pavilion for what?"
Jia Si said: "The City Lord just said that if I encounter a suspicious person entering and leaving the Azure Sun Pavilion, he will be arrested immediately, and he must not be released from Earth City."
Yang Kai raised his brows and hummed: "Your City Lord is so majestic."
Jas was shocked and quickly said: "Jia also obeyed orders, this young master calmed down his anger."
Yang Kai said, "Then do you know who owns this Azure Sun Pavilion?"
Jia Si said: "I didn't know before. The City Lord asked me to inquire about the details of Azure Sun Pavilion a few days ago. Only then did Jia know that it is a shop opened here by a disciple of the Southern Territory Azure Sun Temple."
"This has been found out, Master Jia is amazing." Yang Kai sneered strangely.
Jia Si shivered so badly, crying with a sad face: "This is also an order to act..."
Yang Kai interrupted him, and said solemnly: "Then have you seen such a woman in the City Lord's Mansion!"
While speaking, Yang Kai raised his hand, and the Emperor Yuan surged in his body, condensing the image of Gao Xueting in front of Jia Si.
Jia Si looked at it and shook his head blankly and said: "I have never seen it before, but I heard from my subordinates that this woman often went in and out of the Azure Sun Pavilion a few days ago. Jia also followed her clues to find out about the Azure Sun Pavilion."
Yang Kai frowned and said, "Have you never seen her?"
According to his and Lu Wen’s conjecture, Gao Xueting should have asked Zu Hong to work together to crack the secret on the animal skin. Logically speaking, she should have been in and out of the city lord’s mansion. Since Jia Si is Zu Hong’s confidant, he has never seen her.
But judging from the look of Jia Si, he is not lying.
Could it be said that Gao Xueting really didn't find Zu Hong? Who did she to join forces with?
Is there any relationship between the City Lord's Mansion and this matter? If it weren't for Gao Xueting, why would they monitor and surround Azure Sun Pavilion.
Yang Kai was puzzled.
