A moment later, the door to the bamboo house opened again and Gong Yangxi stepped out, his face slightly pale.
Turning around, he respectfully closed the door and bowed, “I’ve disturbed Sir, please rest.”
The hundreds of Mad Dragon Pavilion elites couldn’t believe their eyes.
“Let’s go!” Gong Yangxi shouted as his figure transformed into a streak of light and shot off into the distance.
Although the people from Mad Dragon Pavilion were filled with doubts, none of them dared to ask any questions. All of them summoned their flying artifacts and used their Divine Abilities to leave this place. In the blink of an eye, not a single one of the hundreds of people who had come here remained, and the solitary mountain once again became calm.
A hundred kilometres away, Gong Yangxi, who was flying at the very front, suddenly opened his mouth and spat out a mouthful of blood. His aura immediately became extremely weak and his old face became even older, as if he could die at any moment.
“Pavilion Master!” Seeing this, several Elders were shocked and quickly surrounded him.
What exactly happened in that bamboo house? What kind of communication did the Pavilion Master have with that thief? Why did he leave without saying a word after coming out and now look so seriously injured?
All kinds of mysteries caused one’s thoughts to become chaotic.
Gong Yangxi barely managed to stabilize himself before waving his hand, indicating that he was fine.
“Pavilion Master, that person…” One of the Elders couldn’t help asking out of curiosity.
“Don’t ask too many questions,” Gong Yangxi’s face flashed a look of horror.
“But our Sect Protection Treasure…”
“I don’t want it!” Gong Yangxi’s eyes flashed a look of determination, “I’ll just treat it as… never happen.”
“Ah…” A series of cries rang out.
Just who was it that could cause their Pavilion Master to be so afraid, to the point where he didn’t even want to pursue the Sect Protection Treasure that had been passed down for tens of thousands of years? The Elders no longer dared to think about it, afraid that the thought that appeared in their minds would cause them to lose their heart of Martial Dao.
Outside the bamboo house, He Yunxiang’s mouth was slightly agape, as if someone had stuffed two invisible fingers into it. She stared dumbly at Mad Dragon Pavilion’s group leaving, feeling like her head was about to explode.
Wasn’t this one of the most powerful Sects in the Ancestral Domain? Why was he acting so cowardly? If it weren’t for the strength of these people, He Yunxiang would have suspected that there was another force called Mad Dragon Pavilion in the Ancestral Domain.
The corners of Yang Kai’s eyes also twitched. If possible, he wanted to turn around and leave.
However, what he wanted was most likely to be done by the person inside the house, so he couldn’t just leave like that. After hesitating for a long time, he grit his teeth and made up his mind. In order to return to his homeland, even if there was shit inside, he had to step on it!
“Stay here, I’ll be back soon,” Yang Kai patted Liu Yan’s head.
Liu Yan grabbed his sleeve tightly.
“Be obedient!” Yang Kai glared at her.
“No!” Liu Yan refused to be outdone, her eyes widening even further.
Yang Kai said, “You can’t put all the eggs in one basket, just listen to me smash the cup later. If anything goes wrong, immediately rush in and roast that person into a roasted pig.”
Liu Yan nodded and released him, “Good, be careful.”
“En.” In front of that person, what was the use of being careful?
Walking out, Yang Kai arrived in front of the bamboo house and coughed lightly before knocking on the door and asking loudly, “Is anyone home?”
The originally solemn atmosphere suddenly became somewhat comical, and He Yunxiang couldn’t help laughing out loud, covering her mouth and not making a sound.
No one in the room responded. Yang Kai straightened his clothes and apologized, “Excuse me!”
Pushing open the door and entering, just like before, the door automatically closed.
The light changed from bright to dark as a man sat cross-legged on a futon in front of him, smiling at Yang Kai.
As their eyes met, Yang Kai’s vigilance increased to the extreme, but his expression remained calm as he casually cupped his hands, “Brother Wu, I trust you have been well since we last met.” If you are willing to change your name to Wu Chen, I will call you Brother Wu. This old master will not call you Senior Wu, the biggest malignant tumor in the Star Territory’s history!
Wu Kuang didn’t pay it any mind and simply stretched out his hand, “Sit.”
Yang Kai said, “I’ll just stand here, that’s good.” Yang Kai didn’t release any of his strength, preparing to fight this man in front of him.
Wu Kuang said, “But this King needs to raise my head to speak with you.”
The corners of Yang Kai’s mouth twitched, but after thinking about it for a moment, he didn’t want to take advantage of him in such a situation, lest he anger him and make him sit down.
As the two faced each other, Wu Kuang took out a tea set and began slowly cooking.
Yang Kai was suddenly overwhelmed by this unexpected favor. Regardless of whether this man was the biggest malignant tumor in the Star Territory for the past tens of thousands of years, or how many Star Territory he had wreaked havoc and how many lives he had slaughtered, he was still the number one person in the Star Territory who had never been seen before. He had even slaughtered several Great Emperors, so it was quite an honor to be able to serve him tea.
The hostility in his eyes couldn’t help diminishing greatly. This kind of bearing was indeed the style of an expert. In the future, if he were to talk about drinking tea with Wu Kuang, it would be a matter of great honor.
“Why is little friend here?” Wu Kuang asked casually.
Meeting Yang Kai in such a place was truly unexpected.
Yang Kai said solemnly, “It’s a long story, but I originally came here to kill you.”
Wu Kuang smiled slightly, “What about now?”
“Are you going to let me?” Yang Kai asked.
“That will depend on whether little friend has the ability or not.”
Yang Kai thought about it seriously for a moment before shaking his head, “Even if I have the ability, I’m afraid I can’t kill you.” Killing Wu Kuang was the same as killing Duan Hongchen. The price he had to pay was too great, so he immediately said indignantly, “Just you wait, when this Young Master finds a way to force you out of Senior Hongchen’s body, it will be your death!”
“Then you must work hard to cultivate,” Wu Kuang smiled lightly.
Yang Kai felt very uncomfortable. This meeting was completely different from what he had imagined. Didn’t you kill people like flies? Why did you act like a wise old man? Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling that before he could even strike, someone else was already blocking his path with cotton.
It was better for everyone to shed all pretense of cordiality and ruthlessly kill each other regardless of who lived or died.
“Have you become a vegetarian?” Yang Kai suddenly asked.
“What?” Wu Kuang was confused.
“How come those people from Mad Dragon Pavilion wasn't devoured by you?” To be honest, he was also extremely surprised just now. The fact that the group from Mad Dragon Pavilion was able to leave safely was simply inconceivable. It wasn’t just the green smoke rising from their ancestral graves, it was like they were spewing fire.
Wu Kuang was definitely not someone to be trifled with. The Heavens Devourer Battle Law was his origin cultivation technique and he had only swallowed a dragon half a year ago on Dragon Island.
“What’s the point of just stuffing food between your teeth?”
Yang Kai nodded in agreement and asked, “Then why did you come to the Ancestral Domain? Was your original intention to go to Dragon Island here?”
Wu Kuang said, “Take out some things i left here to prepare for the future.”
“In the future?” Yang Kai frowned.
“We’ll talk about this later,” Wu Kuang took a cup of tea and slowly sipped it.
Yang Kai took a look, but there wasn’t even a teacup in sight, so he simply picked up the teapot and took a big gulp before saying, “You don’t eat those people not because you don’t want to, but because you can’t, right?”
Wu Kuang’s hands paused, his eyes flashing as he stared at Yang Kai, “What do you mean?” In this world, was there anything he couldn’t do?
“No matter how small a mosquito is, it’s still meat. What’s more, you’re still in a critical recovery period. Isn’t hiding in this Lower Plane to devour more power?”
“And?” Wu Kuang looked at him with a smile, not knowing whether he was right or wrong.
Yang Kai said, “Senior Duan will definitely not tolerate such a thing happening, he must have interfered to stop you…” Saying so, Yang Kai suddenly frowned and leaned back slightly, carefully examining Wu Kuang.
In that instant just now, an incredible thought popped up in his mind.
Wu Kuang’s smile didn’t falter.
Yang Kai’s body shook as he hesitated, “Senior… Duan?”
Wu Kuang’s smile became a bitter one.
Yang Kai asked in disbelief, “Is it really Senior Duan?”
Wu Kuang suddenly laughed loudly, “Old Duan, I told you, you can’t imitate this Great One’s style, you really can't pretend to be a tiger,” Then he said solemnly, “Shut up.”
Yang Kai broke out in a cold sweat. If he had only been suspicious a moment ago, now he was certain that the one he had been talking to since entering the room was not Wu Kuang, but Duan Hongchen.
His face suddenly sank as he asked, “Senior Duan, what happened?”
He had always thought that Duan Hongchen had been suppressed by Wu Kuang, otherwise how could he have run to Dragon Island to slay a dragon and then hide in this Lower Plane Star Territory? But now it seemed that this was not the case. Duan Hongchen had not been completely suppressed and he still had some freedom.
From the conversation between Wu Kuang and Duan Hongchen, it seemed their relationship wasn’t that bad.
No matter what evil deeds Wu Kuang did, Yang Kai wouldn’t think it was too much, but if those evil deeds involved Duan Hongchen, the situation would be completely different.
Duan Hongchen obviously knew what Yang Kai was angry about and sighed, “I only managed to extricate myself after he came here. I didn’t mean to hide what happened before.”
Yang Kai let out a sigh of relief. This was more like it. If Duan Hongchen really colluded with Wu Kuang and colluded with him, it would be troublesome.
Seeing Yang Kai’s expression change, sometimes fierce and sometimes malicious, Duan Hongchen said, “Don’t try anything funny, even if you and I join forces now, we won’t be able to kill him. The only reason I was able to come out and take a breath of fresh air was because he wanted to. If he really wanted to suppress me, I wouldn’t have been able to escape.”
Yang Kai’s mood sank as he finally let go of this thought and asked helplessly, “Then what should we do?”
Duan Hongchen said, “Let nature take its course, but since fate has brought us together today, this old master has something to ask of you.”
Yang Kai said seriously, “If Senior has any instructions, feel free to ask.”
Duan Hongchen said, “If you return to the Star Boundary, someone will definitely come to ask about Wu Kuang’s whereabouts, so please don’t tell anyone.”
Yang Kai asked curiously, “Why is that?” He felt that this time, Duan Hongchen’s attitude towards Wu Kuang had changed quite a bit and was no longer as confrontational as before, even somewhat compromising.
Why? Why? What kind of communication did the two Great Emperors have with each other? What kind of agreement had they reached that Duan Hongchen would intentionally conceal Wu Kuang’s whereabouts?
