Such a lineup was even richer than the top Sects of the Star Boundary. It had to be known that even the likes of Fire Dragon Palace, Ice Heart Valley, and Azure Sun Temple only had one 3rd order Emperor Realm master.
The Space Array flashed, startling Bian Yuqing who was meditating.
Looking over, she thought Hua Qingsi had returned from the Southern Domain and quickly stood up to greet her.
Before she arrived, Yang Kai’s figure had already appeared. Bian Yuqing’s expression became serious as she quickly cupped her fists and greeted, “Palace Master has returned.”
Several disciples who were standing guard at the side also hurried over to greet him with respectful expressions. Speaking of which, it had been more than ten years since Yang Kai left the North Region for Dragon Island, and during this time there had been no news of him at all. If Zhu Qing hadn’t come over to inform everyone of the truth, everyone would have thought he had encountered some kind of accident.
However, Zhu Qing didn’t mention that he had gone to the Lower Planes Star Field, only saying that he was currently cultivating in seclusion, and it might take a few years for him to emerge.
Now that she felt the fluctuations from Yang Kai’s body, Bian Yuqing was shocked to discover that it was the aura of a 2nd order Emperor Realm. In just over a decade, he had actually broken through to the 2nd order Emperor Realm. What kind of bizarre cultivation speed was this? When she first met him, he was only a 2nd order Void King Realm. Compared to him, she couldn’t help feeling a sense of inferiority.
“Manager Bian,” Yang Kai grinned. Reuniting with an old friend made him feel a sense of familiarity. Although the Heng Luo Star Field was his homeland, High Heaven Palace was the foundation of his current standing. After ten years of hard work, he had finally returned and was in a good mood, “Are you on duty today?”
“Yes!” Bian Yuqing replied honestly.
“En, did anything happen in the palace these past few years?”
“Everything is fine, Palace Master can rest assured.”
High Heaven Palace’s heritage was obvious, and the news of the three Monster Kings presiding over them was no secret. In the entire North Region, besides Wonderful Pill Great Empero's Medicine Pill Valley, who else could compare to them? Naturally, no one would dare cause trouble for them, so the past ten years had been quite peaceful.
“On the other hand, the people from Fire Dragon Palace have come here many times to inquire about the whereabouts of Palace Master Li Jiao.”
“En, leave them alone,” Yang Kai waved his hand, “Have Elder Sister Hua come see me.”
Bian Yuqing replied, “Chief Manager Hua is currently not in the palace.”
“Where did Elder Sister Hua go?” Yang Kai was stunned.
“Right now, it’s the end of the year. Chief Manager Hua went to the Southern Domain half a month ago, presumably to make some trade with Violet Source Chamber of Commerce. Calculating the time, she should be back in two days.”
A few years ago, Yang Kai had reached an agreement with the Violet Source Chamber of Commerce. The two Great Domains were far apart, and their output was different, allowing them to communicate freely. Over the past few years, Hua Qingsi had maintained this trade relationship, bringing great profits to High Heaven Palace.
“Is that so? Then let Nanmen Dajun and Chi Yue come over.”
Yang Kai stepped forward, his figure merging into the void, and when he reappeared, he was already above High Heaven Palace. Looking down from above, he could see the mountain ranges, the grass and trees, and the beautiful scenery. The various peaks rose and fell, and a large number of buildings were situated between the mountains, but most of them were empty. These buildings were basically the property left behind by Asking Passion Sect, but High Heaven Palace had always been sparsely populated and no one lived there.
Yang Kai flew around the entire High Heaven Palace and observed it for a long time, making up his mind.
Now that he had returned, the first thing he had to do was naturally release the people from the Mysterious Small Boundary. Only by assimilating into this realm as soon as possible could they adapt to the World Laws of the Star Boundary.
After today, High Heaven Palace’s population would exceed a hundred thousand.
With the cry of an eagle, a figure flew over and when he got close, he transformed into a man with a hooked nose and cupped his fists, “Young Master Yang.”
“Ah, Ying Fei, long time no see. How have you been?” Yang Kai smiled.
Ying Fei said, “Many thanks for Young Master Yang’s concern, everything is fine.”
As they were speaking, Xi Lei and Xie Wuwei also rushed over. Obviously, the three of them had sensed Yang Kai’s aura, but Ying Fei was faster, so he was the first to arrive.
After paying their respects, Xi Lei asked curiously, “Young Master Yang, what are you looking at?”
“Seeing how many people my High Heaven Palace can accommodate.”
Xi Lei chuckled, “We have a lot of people here, just Spirit Peak alone has more than a hundred, so it shouldn’t be a problem for us to accommodate a few hundred thousand people. Is Young Master Yang planning to open the gates and accept disciples?”
“No need,” Yang Kai shook his head and casually said, “Right, I just came back from the Wild Ancient Land.”
The three Monster Kings’ expressions all became serious as they glanced at each other. Ying Fei cautiously asked, “Did the Holy Venerable… say anything?”
“I just met them for a moment and was chased out by them. They didn’t really welcome me,” Yang Kai grinned, recalling the expressions of Fan Wu and the others just now and feeling a bit amused.
“I don’t think so…” Ying Fei was speechless. Although he could guess why the three Holy Venerable didn’t welcome Yang Kai, he couldn’t say anything at this moment.
Xi Lei hesitated before asking, “Did the Holy Venerable mention us?”
As soon as these words came out, Ying Fei and Xie Wuwei both turned to look at Yang Kai, their hearts filled with anxiety. No matter what, they were still Monster Kings of the Wild Ancient Land and were under the command of the Three Holy Venerable. If the Holy Venerable ordered them to return to the Wild Ancient Land, they would not be able to refuse, or they would be considered traitors.
However, if they were to go back just like that, they would definitely be unwilling. After staying by Yang Kai’s side for so many years, they had yet to obtain the opportunity they wanted. If they were to leave now, it would be too much of a loss.
“Absolutely not,” Yang Kai shook his head, “It seems that from now on, you will be my people.”
The three of them looked at each other, cupped their fists, and said, “We are willing to serve you!” Their eyes filled with excitement. It would be best if the Holy Venerable didn’t summon them back, but they were also happy to remain by Yang Kai’s side. Although their days in High Heaven Palace were a bit more peaceful and they didn’t have much to do, this was the best way to establish a relationship with the Heaven Punishment descendant.
“Do your best, I won’t mistreat you in the future,” Yang Kai said casually, his words both sincere, making the three Monster Kings even more excited.
“Let’s go back.” Yang Kai flew down and soon landed in front of a huge square. Nanmen Dajun and Bian Yuqing were waiting for him, and when they saw Yang Kai flying over, Nanmen Dajun quickly greeted him, “Greetings, Palace Master!”
“Little brat, you’ve finally returned,” Chi Yue, Gui Zu, Gu Cangyun, and Ai Ou also stepped forward.
Yang Kai cupped his fists and bowed. No matter how high his current cultivation was, these people could be considered his seniors, especially Chi Yue and Ai Ou. One of them was his mother-in-law while the other was father-in-law, so how could he not be respectful?
“Little brat, where did you go to have fun again? I heard you even managed to subdue one of the Dragon Race?” Ai Ou looked at Yang Kai with a dissatisfied expression, his tone dripping with sarcasm.
This little brat was simply outrageous. He already had four beauties in the Star Field, but now he had to play around in the Star Boundary and even catch a member of the Dragon Race. With such a close relationship, Ai Ou naturally had some objections. Facing the Dragon Race, he didn’t dare act too presumptuously, but facing Yang Kai was different. No matter how high his cultivation was, if he mistreated his daughter, he wouldn’t let him off easily.
Not only was there a single Dragon Race member, but Ai Ou had also heard that there was a woman in Ice Heart Valley who seemed to be somewhat entangled with Yang Kai. This was simply unbearable for Ai Ou. If it weren’t for his insufficient strength, he would have already taught Yang Kai a harsh lesson.
“An accident, an accident,” Yang Kai’s forehead was covered in sweat. He had only mentioned the matter with Zhu Qing to Su Yan, so he didn’t know if Su Yan had told Luo'er, Ningchang and Xue Yue about it, but Yang Kai had never heard them ask about it.
“Accident?” Ai Ou shouted angrily, “How can you face those girls? I don’t even know how they’re doing in the Star Field right now. Boy, if you have the time to fool around, why don’t you think of a way to go back and see them and bring them over? With your current ability, you should be able to do it.”
“I was just about to discuss this matter with you,” Yang Kai followed up.
“What is it?” Chi Yue looked at him suspiciously.
“Everyone, take a look and see who this is,” Yang Kai smiled lightly and waved his hand in front of him, condensing his Divine Sense into the Mysterious Boundary Bead. As he waved his hand, several figures appeared.
Su Yan, Xia Ningchang, Shan Qingluo, and Xue Yue all appeared at the same time. The four women had obviously been summoned all of a sudden and were still in a daze, not knowing what had happened. However, as they stood side by side, they all had their own unique beauty.
Nanmen Dajun and Bian Yuqing were both amazed as their eyes swept over the four women.
Although the cultivation of Su Yan and the others wasn’t much in their eyes, all four of them were outstanding beauties. If an ordinary person could obtain one of them, it would be a blessing of several lifetimes. However, Yang Kai was able to sit with all four of them and enjoy the pleasures of life, causing the two of them to sigh in admiration.
The focus of the three Monster Kings was not on Su Yan and the others’ appearances. Although it was undeniable that these four women were beautiful even in the eyes of the Monster Race, they could feel an extraordinary aura from two of them.
This was especially true for the cold-faced woman in the lead. The aura she exuded actually caused them to feel a sense of worship. This aura was somewhat similar to that of Luan Feng, but it was even more beautiful and noble. As she stood there, it was as if she stood atop the clouds, soaring through the nine heavens, overlooking the world.
Although the other charming woman was slightly inferior, her aura was not something an ordinary person could possess.
The three Monster Kings glanced at each other, their eyes filled with shock. As Monster Race masters, they were extremely sensitive to the auras of Holy Spirits, so they were able to tell that Su Yan and Shan Qingluo possessed Holy Spirit Source at a glance. It was just that their strengths were slightly lower, if they were able to mature, they would definitely be no match for them.
“Luo'er?” Chi Yue was stunned, staring at Shan Qingluo in disbelief.
Just now, Ai Ou had told Yang Kai to find a way to go to the Star Field to bring Shan Qingluo and the others over, but in the blink of an eye, Shan Qingluo had actually appeared in front of her.
