“Since Elder Yang is willing to become our Sect’s Guest Elder, it is naturally our Sect’s good fortune. It’s just that our Sect is quite poor and doesn’t have much livelihood. As for this month’s salary… it may be a bit unfair to Elder Yang.” Qin Pei’s voice became softer, and as she spoke, her face turned red. She was really worried that she wouldn’t be able to pay the fee to hire Yang Kai. If it was just an ordinary Emperor Realm master, it wouldn’t be a big deal, but the key was that Yang Kai wasn’t an ordinary Emperor Realm master. If she really did manage to hire him, the monthly salary would be too little, and even the Rakshasa Sect wouldn’t be able to afford it.
Yang Kai raised the cloth bag containing the seeds and said, “This is enough.”
Qin Pei was both moved and grateful as she stared at him. That bag of seeds wasn’t rare, only costing her less than a hundred Source Crystals. She knew that if it weren’t for Yu Zhuo’s face, he wouldn’t have made such a loss. He really treated Yu Zhuo as a friend, and for a moment, she felt both sad and grateful. If Yu Zhuo was still alive, she would have been overjoyed.
Suddenly, she said, “The Azure Sun Temple…” Yang Kai was an Elder of the Azure Sun Temple, so would the Azure Sun Temple agree to him becoming a guest Elder of the Rakshasa Sect?
Yang Kai said, “It’s fine, Temple Master Wen won’t object.”
“Many thanks, Elder Yang,” Qin Pei bowed deeply.
Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “Take your fellow disciples and find a place to rest. After this matter is settled, I’ll accompany you to Rakshasa Sect to settle this matter.”
“Yes,” Qin Pei replied respectfully before leading the group of women away.
Yang Kai turned to Hua Qingsi and ordered, “When the Great Emperor is here, inform me.”
Earlier, he had sent an old man to Star Soul Palace to deliver a message to ask for help, after calculating the time, Xiao Yuyang had already set out to receive the Great Emperor’s Grand Arrival. It was estimated that it would only take two days.
Hua Qingsi nodded and watched Yang Kai leave.
The matters at the Plain Palace had basically been settled, and with the ability to identify of the Ruins of End, Yang Kai didn’t have to worry about the existence of hidden Demon Race masters. The Monster Kings of the North Region, the emperor realms and Wild Ancient Land couldn’t remain here any longer. Yang Kai summoned them and led them to the Space Array he had set up before sending them back.
The group of people from the North Region were still alright, but after witnessing Yang Kai’s ability to rally supporters, each of them was more honest than the last. If they were allowed to stay, they would stay, if they were allowed to leave, they would leave without hesitation. On the other hand, the Monster Kings from the Wild Ancient Land all looked at Yang Kai with reluctance, as if he was a piece of delicious cake. If it weren’t for the three Holy Spirits standing by, they would have long since rushed over to try to win him over.
Even so, after sending them off, the Monster Kings’ expressions became more bitter, while the female Monster King Du Mi’er wore a tender expression as she openly teased, “Sir, if you’re free, you must come see this servant. This servant will miss you.”
Luan Feng’s expression immediately darkened, while Fan Wu and Cang Gou also wore worried expressions, sighing in their hearts.
After busying himself for a while, he finally managed to send the group away.
Yang Kai turned around and sighed, “Junior Sister Yao, do you think I can’t see you sneaking around?”
Not far away, behind a large tree, Ji Yao’s figure appeared as she stepped forward.
There weren’t many people from Ice Heart Valley, and when the people from Ice Heart Valley had just left, Yang Kai hadn’t even seen Ji Yao’s figure. With a sweep of his Divine Sense, he knew she was hiding nearby, so he didn’t point out her presence until now.
Their eyes met and Yang Kai asked helplessly, “You’re not going back?”
Ji Yao replied, “To accompany you.”
As she spoke, she took the initiative to grab Yang Kai’s hand and gently flew off in a certain direction.
Her jade-like hands were soft and smooth, and the fragrance of her perfume lingered in the air, causing one’s mind to relax involuntarily. Yang Kai didn’t know what she wanted to do, but he didn’t resist, allowing her to pull him along.
Not long after, they arrived at a mountain peak. At this time, the Plain Palace had been emptied, and the surviving cultivators who had come to participate in the Martial Meeting were all gathered in the mountain valley. Most of the disciples from the Plain Palace had died, so the buildings on this mountain peak were also empty.
Unsure if it was a coincidence, the mountain peak Ji Yao had inadvertently chosen was actually the place where the group from Azure Sun Temple had lived.
After entering a room and closing the door, Ji Yao let go of Yang Kai and took a deep breath before closing her eyes and standing there, her heart suddenly beating much faster.
Yang Kai turned his head to look at her and saw that she was acting like meeting a king, so he couldn’t help laughing, “What are you doing?”
Ji Yao opened her eyes and glanced at him before asking, “What do you want?”
Yang Kai was speechless for a moment, thinking to himself, it was you who pulled me here, but now you’re asking me what I want to do. However, after thinking about it for a moment, he was able to guess some of Ji Yao’s thoughts and his heart warmed slightly as he laughed, “I’m not that weak.”
Ji Yao stared at him with her big eyes, not knowing if she believed him or not, but she was caught off guard and pulled into Yang Kai’s embrace, her whole body stiffening as she exclaimed, “Didn’t you say…”
Yang Kai grinned, “I’m not that weak, but since someone took the initiative to send me here, there’s no need to be polite.” With a slight push, both of them rolled onto the bed.
Ji Yao suddenly felt like crying, but no tears came out. As her whole body trembled, she felt a large hand moving around her body, the fingertips seemingly carrying an electric current, causing her body and mind to tremble and her already tense nerves to tighten.
His heavy breathing traveled up her abdomen, past her chest and neck, and finally onto her face.
Ji Yao quickly closed her eyes as her long eyelashes trembled. In the next moment, she felt her lips being violated and a suppressed voice came from her throat.
This time, Yang Kai’s actions were extremely rough, not showing the slightest bit of mercy towards the fairer sex. As his large hands kneaded, Ji Yao felt a sharp pain, and the suction from his lips made her feel like she was suffocating, as if she could die at any moment.
After a long time, their lips parted and Ji Yao gasped for breath. Although she did not open her eyes, she could clearly feel a pair of sharp eyes staring at her, causing her cheeks to burn as she did not dare to open her eyes.
Just as she thought she would not be able to escape this time, Yang Kai suddenly lay down and rested his head on her stomach, not moving for a long time.
Ji Yao opened her eyes suspiciously and slowly got up, moving Yang Kai’s head onto her thigh as she looked down at him. When their eyes met, Yang Kai smiled slightly and Ji Yao asked, “Do you feel better?”
As she spoke, she reached out and slowly combed through Yang Kai’s messy hair, her movements as gentle as a newlywed wife.
Yang Kai reached out and grabbed her soft hand, gently patting it, “When we return, I’ll go see Senior Bing Yun.”
Ji Yao’s tender body trembled as she asked nervously, “See her… for what?”
Yang Kai raised his eyes to look at her and said matter-of-factly, “Naturally, it’s between you and me. I believe Senior Bing Yun won’t try to stop us.” Originally, he didn’t want to do it, but after Yu Zhuo's incident, his mentality had undergone some subtle changes. His previous indecisiveness had been greatly reduced.
The blush on Ji Yao’s face immediately faded as she turned pale, “No.”
Yang Kai was stunned, “No?”
Ji Yao shook her head, “Don’t tell Honored Master.”
Yang Kai was stunned for a moment before smiling again, “Do you think Senior Bing Yun is blind? I’m afraid she has already seen through your thoughts, but if you really want to do so, you’ll have to suffer a bit. You know that I still have Su Yan and the others…”
“I know, but don’t tell Honored Master.”
Yang Kai asked curiously, “Why?”
“There’s no reason. In any case, don’t say anything.”
Yang Kai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “You and I are already in such a state, so why are you still hiding it? Why don’t you just open up this matter? Wouldn’t it be better to do it openly?”
Ji Yao did not speak and just kept shaking her head.
Yang Kai’s heart sank as he said somewhat uncomfortably, “You don’t want to…”
“That’s not true.”
Yang Kai said, “Then do you know that if you and I act like this now, it’s considered stealing…” Yang Kai was too embarrassed to say the rest of his words out in consideration of Ji Yao’s face.
Ji Yao lowered her head and said, “So be it, it’s good now.”
Yang Kai stared at her in shock, wishing he could knock her head open and see what was inside.
Ji Yao suddenly said coldly, “If you dare tell anyone about this, I will go into seclusion and never see you again.”
Yang Kai was shocked and quickly comforted, “Good, good, good, I won’t say anything.”
Only then did Ji Yao’s expression return to normal as she sat there quietly, looking down at Yang Kai’s face with a gentle look in her eyes. The room was extremely quiet as Yang Kai lay on Ji Yao’s supple thighs, his entire body wrapped in a faint fragrance. All the fatigue he had felt over the past few days had been swept away, his body and mind completely relaxed.
After an unknown period of time, Yang Kai suddenly opened his eyes and took out a communication compass from his Space Ring. After pouring his Divine Sense into it, he stood up and said, “The people from Star Soul Palace have arrived.”
“Hair!” Ji Yao called out.
Yang Kai’s hair was a mess right now. If he really ran out like this, everyone would know what he had done.
Yang Kai quickly turned around and sat down on the edge of the bed. Ji Yao knelt behind him and tidied his hair before pulling him up and smoothing out the wrinkles on his clothes with a serious expression, Yang Kai smiled and reached out to embrace her.
Ji Yao placed her hand on his chest vigilantly and frowned, “Business is more important.”
Before she could finish, Yang Kai leaned over and kissed her lightly.
A moment later, the two of them walked out of the hall and flew towards the valley.
Somewhere in the mountain valley, Wen Zishan, Ma Qing, and the others had all gathered together. Xiao Yuyang, who had gone to greet the Great Emperor, had also returned. In addition, there was a tall and sturdy half-grown old man. Although he didn’t look young, his hair was jet black and his aura was astonishing. There was also a white-haired old man with a restrained look in his eyes. These two people were Star Soul Palace’s Great Elder Lei Hong and Second Elder Xue Zhengmao. Both of them had the powerful cultivation of a Third-Order Emperor Realm master. If Xiao Yuyang was included, the entire Star Soul Palace had three Third-Order Emperor Realm masters, a testament to the Great Emperor Sect’s heritage.
