Bian Hong’s heart sank to the bottom of the valley as he felt a chill run down his spine. This woman’s schemes were truly profound. He had fought with her for five years, yet he didn’t know she still had such a trump card up her sleeve, only opening it at the last moment to defeat him.
He secretly hated himself for being too careless, but there was no medicine for regret.
Thinking quickly, Bian Hong turned around and fled, his voice echoing out, “You bastard, I’ll let you off today, but in the future, I’ll make you submit to this King!”
Qiu Yimeng raised her sword and chased after him, but she was unable to close the distance between them. She had just used a Secret Technique to increase her speed and had expended a great deal of energy, so she had exposed an opening to lure Bian Hong into a trap. After being struck by his palm, she had suffered some injuries. With their cultivations infinitely close to each other, if Bian Hong insisted on escaping, she really didn’t have any good ideas.
In the blink of an eye, the two of them had already passed through the clouds and the scenery on the ground was completely obscured.
In the end, Qiu Yimeng slashed out a Sword Qi, halting her steps.
This attack was easily dodged by Bian Hong, but before he left, he didn’t forget to turn around and mock her, causing Qiu Yimeng to become enraged. Her beautiful eyes stared fixedly at Bian Hong’s back, as if she wanted to imprint this person into the depths of her mind and kill him one day.
A figure suddenly appeared a thousand meters above Bian Hong, but Qiu Yimeng didn’t notice it at first. She couldn’t help furrowing her brow and narrowing her eyes.
This person’s back was facing a round sun, and the golden light was too dazzling. His face was covered in a layer of shadow, making it difficult to see clearly, but his figure was extremely familiar.
Qiu Yimeng’s heart skipped a beat. Such a figure perfectly coincided with the image in her memory.
“Who is it!?” Bian Hong flew a thousand meters up into the sky when he suddenly felt something and looked up in shock. A person had appeared above his head at some point and when he looked closer, he found that it was a young man he had never seen before. Sweeping his Divine Consciousness around, he could not detect any energy fluctuations.
“Scram!” Bian Hong was furious. Today, he had suffered a great loss at Qiu Yimeng’s hands and almost lost his life. He had been forced to flee in a sorry state and had lost all face. At this time, there was actually someone who dared to block his path?
Raising his hand, he sent a palm strike towards the young man, the energy in his palm surging with unfathomable might.
The young man also raised his palm and gently pushed it down, his posture look casual, as if he was not facing a Void King Realm but a fallen leaf fluttering in the wind. A profound smile appeared on his face as he said, “Go down.”
Bian Hong’s eyes bulged as his body trembled uncontrollably.
This palm strike seemed ordinary and harmless, but when it came down, it was actually able to blot out the entire world, causing everything in front of him to go black.
For some reason, Bian Hong felt like he was falling rapidly.
What’s going on? Bian Hong’s mind was a bit muddled. Before he could even turn his head, a sharp aura had already rushed towards him from below. Turning his head, he was overwhelmed with shock.
How could Qiu Yimeng miss such a good opportunity? She immediately wrapped herself in her sword light and transformed it into a shocking strike, slashing towards Bian Hong.
As the sword light and shadow clashed, Qiu Yimeng’s figure reappeared, her face slightly flushed as she gasped for breath. This sure-kill strike had obviously consumed a great deal of her energy.
On the other hand, Bian Hong reached out and clutched his chest, his figure staggering as he stared at Qiu Yimeng in disbelief, gritting his teeth, “You…”
Blood spurted out from the gaps between his fingers, drenching his clothes and filling the air with a bloody stench.
Qiu Yimeng raised her hand and waved at him.
The vitality in Bian Hong’s eyes rapidly disappeared as he fell to the ground, disappearing in the blink of an eye.
The cultivators of the Great Desolate Star Territory all panicked. Bian Hong, the strongest of them all, had actually been killed so easily. They couldn’t believe it and wanted to flee, but the surrounding space suddenly became extremely viscous, making it difficult for them to move.
Tu Feng and the others finally arrived.
Tang Yuxian came to Qiu Yimeng’s side and asked with concern, “Young Lady Qiu, are you alright?” They had been too far away just now, so they didn’t know what exactly had happened. All they saw was Qiu Yimeng killing Bian Hong in a magical manner, so they guessed she must have paid some price.
Qiu Yimeng shook her head and pointed at the cultivators from the Great Desolate Star Territory, “Kill them all.”
Tu Feng, Tang Yuxian, and the others nodded and flew out to fight with the cultivators from the Great Desolate Star Territory. The result was unexpectedly simple. The opponents who could normally fight on par with them were now unable to display even half of their strength, as if they were being suppressed. As the High Heaven Sect disciples rushed forward, they were like a pack of wolves charging into a flock of sheep. The people from the Great Desolate Star Territory were unable to fight back.
Screams rang out as one figure after another fell from the sky, bathed in blood.
Five years of old enemies, and today she actually had the chance to wipe them all out. This was supposed to be a joyous occasion, but Qiu Yimeng turned a deaf ear to it. The sounds of battle in her ears became extremely distant and gradually became distant. She looked up in a daze, desperately wanting to know the answer in her heart.
As the figure approached, Qiu Yimeng’s heartbeat became faster, as if she was worried about losing something.
When he finally arrived, a familiar face appeared in front of her, a familiar smile hanging on his lips. The memories from decades ago gradually came back to life, as if he had jumped out of her memories.
Qiu Yimeng’s breathing stopped for a moment, not daring to acknowledge him.
The two of them had clearly drawn closer to each other, but the distance between them was even greater than before. It was as if he was the round sun hanging in the sky, far away from her. Although she could see him, she could only feel the warm light that illuminated her body and cast a shadow on her back.
“You don’t know me?” Yang Kai smiled at her.
“Greetings, Sect Master!” Qiu Yimeng collected her thoughts and lowered her head, her eyelashes fluttering as she spoke in a somewhat choked voice.
She had thought that after tens of years of hard work, she would be able to get closer, but the day they met again was different.
Yang Kai was stunned for a moment before raising his finger and placing it in front of her head, “Raise your head!”
Qiu Yimeng took a deep breath and raised her head.
Qiu Yimeng’s head flew back, her hands covering her forehead as she shouted angrily, “What are you doing!”
He had actually used his finger to flick her own head, this was simply too much! Even if his strength was high, he shouldn’t bully others like this, her eyes couldn’t help turning red. After waiting for so many years, was this what she had been waiting for?
Yang Kai laughed and said, “It’s still Young Lady Qiu. Just now, I thought you had been possessed by some monster and was preparing to ruthlessly kill it, but now it seems there’s no need.”
“You’re the one who’s been possessed,” Qiu Yimeng said indignantly. Seeing that he was still smiling, she immediately became angry and kicked towards him.
Yang Kai dodged.
“You dare!” Qiu Yimeng glared at him and kicked again.
Yang Kai obediently accepted the blow, but seeing that Qiu Yimeng’s anger had not subsided and was still glaring at him, he let out a sigh and pretended to cover his calf while jumping up, a look of pain on his face.
Qiu Yimeng glanced at him from the corner of her eyes, a look of surprise appearing on her face, “Are you an idiot?” As she stared at him, her face suddenly turned slightly red.
This… why did it seem like they were flirting and daring to glare at him?
A warm feeling filled her heart. No matter how high his cultivation was, no matter how long he had been gone, it wasn’t because he was too far away, it was because she wanted to use a ruler to measure the distance between them.
“Good, now that you’re a Sect Master, what would others think of you?” Qiu Yimeng couldn’t help smiling.
Yang Kai suddenly grabbed her wrist.
Qiu Yimeng panicked and asked, “What… what are you doing?”
As soon as these words came out of her mouth, her face turned red as a stream of pure energy flowed from Yang Kai’s palm into her body. The injuries she had just suffered showed signs of healing immediately, causing her to feel extremely awkward, wishing she could find a hole to hide in.
He was just healing her injuries, so she couldn’t help feeling somewhat disappointed.
What was she looking forward to?
After a while, Yang Kai withdrew his hand and took out a Spirit Pill and placed it in her palm.
Qiu Yimeng didn’t ask any more questions, simply raising her head and swallowing it down. Stroking her beautiful hair, she asked, “When did you come back?” Her expression and tone had returned to normal. Since there is nothing going on between them, they should just get along.
“I just came back,” Yang Kai said, “A lot of things happened here.”
“Yes, have you returned to the Sect?”
“I’ve already returned.”
“Great Elder should have told you, right?”
“I have heard.”
“Shadowed Star is your territory, what should we do?”
Yang Kai said, “Since they come, don’t even think about leaving.”
While the two of them were talking, Yang Kai had already secretly activated the World's Spiritual Energy, causing the World's Spiritual Energy to suddenly fluctuate and the World Laws to become extremely clear.
Qiu Yimeng silently observed her surroundings as a mysterious sensation began to form.
The star beneath her feet seemed to come alive.
It was originally alive and had never died, but ever since Yang Kai left Shadowed Star, this Cultivation Star had become somewhat desolate and silent, slowly transforming. If it was a living creature, then it had been asleep for the past few decades after Yang Kai left.
Now, with Yang Kai’s return, it had also recovered from its long slumber.
The entire world’s Spiritual Energy was filled with a kind of indescribable vitality, and Qiu Yimeng could even feel the surrounding Spiritual Energy happily pulsing and interweaving.
Suddenly, an invisible net seemed to appear between heaven and earth, forming a cage that enveloped the entire planet.
Qiu Yimeng seemed to be lost in thought as she turned her head to look into the distance, her Saint Yuan condensing in her eyes as she faintly saw the scenery there.
In the sky several thousand kilometers away, the cultivators of the Great Desolate Star Territory were like fish caught in a net, struggling to break free from the shackles of Shadowed Star, but no matter how they struggled, they were unable to break free.
They were unable to escape Shadowed Star, and under the suppression of the omnipresent World Laws, they were unable to display their full strength.
However, the cultivators of Shadowed Star didn’t have this kind of suppression at all. They chased after their enemies and killed them one by one.
This is the power of a Star Master!
Above the stars, dominating everything, I am God, God is me!
