Of course, if he wanted to ensure that the Star Territory wasn’t destroyed too badly, it was best not to reveal too much power. Only someone like Wu Kuang, who focused on devouring others, would act so recklessly.
Outside the bamboo house, Liu Yan was sitting on the Star Shuttle, her delicate face in her hands as she waited, her clear eyes reflecting the scene.
“Were you really picked up by the lord?” He Yunxiang stretched out her hand and patted her head. Such a delicate little girl was always loved by others, and her soft long hair was even more irresistible. Even if she played with it for an entire day and night, she would never get tired of it.
“Yes.” From a certain perspective, picking her up wasn’t wrong. If she hadn’t met Yang Kai, she would still be an Artifact Spirit trapped in the Artifact Refining Furnace. Now that she had her own body and obtained the Phoenix True Fire Inheritance, this opportunity was not small.
“Who will Sir meet inside?”
Liu Yan shook her head. She didn’t know who was inside, but she could feel that this person was very strong, so strong that even if she and Yang Kai joined forces, they might not be able to win. Suddenly, she looked up at He Yunxiang and asked, “Do you want to become Master’s woman?”
“What?” He Yunxiang blushed. Was this something a child should ask? She squatted down and asked earnestly, “Who taught you these things?”
Liu Yan said, “Then I’m afraid you won’t have a chance. My master family has several Mistress.” Turning her head, she looked forward.
Yang Kai pushed open the door and walked out. Rubbing his chin, he stood in place for a long time before landing on the Star Shuttle.
“Sir, should we continue?” He Yunxiang asked.
“Let’s go,” Yang Kai waved his hand and sat down cross-legged on the Star Shuttle. Seeing Liu Yan staring at him helplessly, he pulled her into his embrace.
Liu Yan smiled and sat down obediently.
The Star Shuttle transformed into a stream of light and soon disappeared.
A voice came from inside the bamboo house.
“This old master has been wise all my life, but I never expected that in the end I would have to work together with you.”
“Hmph, those who achieve great things don’t bother with trifles. When that day comes, you will know your choice is correct.”
“I hope so.”
Peace returned, but the bamboo house was now empty.
“This way!” One day later, Yang Kai suddenly opened his eyes and pointed in a certain direction, his eyes filled with excitement.
Unconsciously, he felt a faint trace of something, like a thread that could break at any moment, or like a flickering flame in the wind and rain, giving off a faint light.
However, it was this thin and almost imperceptible connection that allowed him to determine the direction he was heading in and return to his homeland!
The Star Chart in his Consciousness Sea was undoubtedly the Star Territory Oririn. It was impossible to refine it in a single day, but Yang Kai had tried to communicate with it many times and had finally managed to obtain some benefits.
As long as he followed this layer of perception, he would definitely be able to find his way home, just like a kite high up in the sky, but the thread was still in the hands of the person who was flying the kite.
Numerous faces flashed across his mind, Su Yan, Xia Ningchang, Shan Qingluo, Xue Yue… and many others he had almost forgotten, all of them rushing out to speak to him.
An extremely complicated feeling suddenly welled up in his heart, as if a warm current was flowing through his chest and through his heart.
Liu Yan seemed to sense something and lay down in his embrace, placing her hand on his chest and feeling the intense heartbeat.
The sensation from the Star Chart was still very faint, intermittent, and Yang Kai was constantly directing the direction while He Yunxiang urged her Star Shuttle forward.
A month later, in the wilderness.
A dazzling and colorful Star Path exit spanned more than a hundred meters in the sky, with a few nearby thatched cottages with cultivators meditating inside. Obviously, these cultivators were disciples from various Sects stationed here, waiting for someone to appear before trying to recruit them.
In the Ancestral Domain, almost every star passage entrance was like this. The Sects of the Ancestral Domain seemed to favor the cultivators from the Lower Planes Star Territory, especially those who came from the Lower Planes Star Territory. Many of them took the initiative to take on this task, so if they encountered cultivators from the same Star Territory, they would have a great advantage.
However, the Star Path’s entrance was also quite lively, with some completely deserted. The main reason for this situation was that there were many Star Territory connected to the Star Path’s entrance. Some of the entrances were connected to more than a dozen Star Territory, while others were only connected to a few Star Territory. The number of cultivators who emerged from these Star Territory was naturally different, so the degree of attention they received was vastly different.
Without a doubt, this Star Path exit was one of the latter. It was only connected to a few Star Territory, and the cultivators stationed here were all Void King Realm and Principle Source Stage rarely exist. It was obvious that this place wasn’t very important.
But in Yang Kai’s eyes, this Star Path exit was the most beautiful thing in the world.
He immersed himself in the Star Chart again and found that the connection was indeed pointing towards the depths of the entrance.
In the Ancestral Domain, there was actually a Star Path connected to the Heng Luo Star Territory, which made Yang Kai overjoyed. After all, when he left, he had never heard of any Ancestral Domain. There were no rumors about this in the entire Heng Luo Star Territory.
The doors of a few thatched cottages opened and a few cultivators walked out. Looking up at Yang Kai and the others, one of them cupped his fists and asked, “Friend, where are you from? Where are you going?”
Yang Kai was in a good mood and waved his hand, “Go about your business, I was just passing by.”
The man frowned, not liking Yang Kai’s attitude, but didn’t say anything.
In the next moment, Yang Kai’s Divine Consciousness surged and pierced towards the Star Path entrance. Although this entrance was definitely connected to Heng Luo Star Territory, it would still take some effort to return to his homeland.
Others would probably need to break through the Void with extreme strength, but Yang Kai possessed a Space Divine Ability, so as long as he grasped a certain law, it shouldn’t be difficult for him to return. Transcending through the Void was a common occurrence for him.
After a short while, Yang Kai made up his mind and patted He Yunxiang’s shoulder, “Right now, you have two choices. The first is to stay here. The Ancestral Domain is not bad, so if you stay here, you will have a good development. I will leave you some pills and cultivation resources.”
“I’ll choose the second one,” He Yunxiang said. If it weren’t for what had happened recently, she would have chosen to remain in the Ancestral Domain, but with Yang Kai’s vast experience, how could she not know that the Ancestral Domain was not the top world?
Even a 3rd order Principle Source Stage cultivator was not a peak Martial Dao cultivator.
She had painstakingly followed Yang Kai from Everlasting Star Territory to this place, so she didn’t want to stop here. Even without Yang Kai giving her a second choice, she had already made her decision.
“Good,” Yang Kai nodded. In any case, it was just one more person, so it wasn’t much of a burden to him.
Just as he was about to walk out, he suddenly stopped and looked down at the people below, “Have you met anyone from Heng Luo Star Territory?”
During this period of time, whenever he came to a Star Path entrance, he would ask about it. Yang Kai was used to this and asked casually, not expecting to receive any affirmative answers. In any case, he was about to return to his homeland, so he could meet the people he wanted to meet soon.
“Why are you asking this?” One of them suddenly showed a vigilant look and frowned at Yang Kai.
It was the person who had spoken to him before.
Yang Kai blinked, somewhat stunned, “You’ve seen it before?”
“I’ve never seen it before,” The man shook his head.
How could Yang Kai believe him? As soon as he stretched out his hand, the man felt a sudden suction force and his body flew forward uncontrollably. His neck was grabbed by Yang Kai’s hand and his face instantly turned red as he lost control of his Saint Yuan.
Yang Kai put on a fierce look and said, “I hate people lying to me the most. If you have it, then you have it. If you don’t have it, then you don’t have it. I’ll give you one more chance, think carefully before you answer.”
Sometimes, being overbearing was far better than being friendly.
When this powerful force was displayed, all the cultivators’ expressions changed. Only now did they realize that this young man had the strength to kill them with a flick of his finger.
“Yes!” The man struggled with all his might and spat out a single word.
Really? Yang Kai couldn’t believe his ears and loosened his grip slightly, “When did you see it? What did the people look like? Where did the people go? Say it carefully, if you hide anything, today will be your death anniversary next year!”
“I don’t know exactly when it happened, but about twenty years ago, I wasn’t responsible for receiving her, but later I heard that Senior Sister came from Heng Luo Star Territory.”
“Senior Sister?” Yang Kai’s expression became serious, “What’s her name?”
Yang Kai’s heart trembled violently as the name suddenly came from a stranger’s mouth. Moreover, it was in a place like the Ancestral Domain, so the impact it had on him was simply unimaginable, causing his mind to go blank and he actually lost the ability to think.
At this time, if an expert were to launch a sneak attack, it would definitely succeed.
Liu Yan asked, “Are you sure she’s from Heng Luo Star Territory?”
“I’m sure, because Senior Sister Su didn’t hide her origins and instead intentionally announced it to everyone.” What everyone paid attention to wasn’t just her background, but also her stunning appearance.
Yang Kai was completely dumbfounded.
If he had some doubts before, now he was almost certain.
Su Yan was here! Su Yan was in the Ancestral Domain!
This name wasn’t particularly special and could almost be said to be ordinary. There should be many people with the same name and surname, but Su Yan from Heng Luo Star Territory, who also had the strength to pass the Star Path, was probably the only one in the world.
Didn’t this mean that not long after he left the Star Territory, Su Yan had arrived at the Ancestral Domain? How did she find the entrance to the Ancestral Domain? With her cold personality, the only reason she wanted to publicize her origins was probably because she wanted to find him.
She didn’t know where he was and didn’t even know if he was in the Ancestral Domain, so she could only use this method to increase their chances of meeting. If Yang Kai really was in the Ancestral Domain and heard about her, he would definitely go find her.
Being alone in a completely foreign world, Yang Kai suddenly felt a bit sad and guilty.
