“I’m sure you already know why I’m here,” Yang Kai went straight to the point.
Tao Yingruo nodded and said, “Sect Master has unfortunately fallen and Rakshasa Sect is now without a leader. For Sir to be able to serve as our Rakshasa Sect’s Guest Elder at this time and protect our Sect’s foundation is truly our Sect’s fortune. This Mistress and the other disciples of Rakshasa Sect are extremely grateful and will definitely follow Sir’s lead in the future.”
Saying so, she bowed again.
Yang Kai waved his hand, “There’s no need for that, you can do whatever you want in the future, just use my name.”
Tao Ying looked up at him and wanted to speak again, but she was interrupted by Yang Kai, “I know the current situation of Rakshasa Sect, but I don’t know much about it, so it’s not up to me to decide the matters of the Sect. That’s all I have to say, Great Elder need not say anything more.”
Hearing this, Tao Yingruo finally understood that Yang Kai really didn’t have any ulterior motives towards Rakshasa Sect. It was only because the guilt to Yu Zhuo that he had come all the way here to protect them.
Her heart was filled with gratitude and all of her previous worries were swept away. She wasn’t worried that Yang Kai was playing hard to get. After all, with his cultivation, if he really wanted to use force, no one in Rakshasa Sect would be able to resist him. On top of that, with Yang Kai’s current reputation, even if Yang Kai did something to Rakshasa Sect, no one in the Southern Domain would stand up for them. There really was such a person in this world. For a moment, her eyes filled with a strange light as she stared at Yang Kai, her words just now were also a kind of probing.
Qin Pei stood to the side and reminded, “Great Elder, please allow Sir to rest inside. It has been a long journey for Sir.”
A trace of embarrassment appeared on Tao Yingruo’s face as she said in annoyance, “It was this mistress’s negligence. Sir, please.” Saying so, she turned her body to the side and made way.
Yang Kai nodded and walked forward without looking back. The hundreds of female disciples on the side of the road all stared at him, their beautiful eyes filled with curiosity. Tao Yingruo secretly observed Yang Kai as he walked forward with an imposing aura, not even glancing at any of the female disciples.
This wasn’t an act of arrogance, but an indifferent indifference towards so many beauties that were easily obtainable. This time, Tao Yingruo really put her heart into her stomach.
After inviting Yang Kai into the main hall and offering him some fragrant tea, the remaining Principle Source Stage masters from Rakshasa Sect all accompanied him, so it was inevitable that they would have to introduce themselves.
Rakshasa Sect originally had one Emperor Realm master and thirteen Principle Source Stage masters, but after the incident at Plain Palace, the Emperor Realm master had fallen, and more than half of the Principle Source Stage masters had died, leaving only five.
Among these five, Tao Yingruo’s cultivation was the strongest, a Third-Order Principle Source Stage master, followed by Qin Pei and the other Principle Source Stage master, while the remaining two were only First-Order Principle Source Stage masters.
With such strength, even the Blue Feather Sect couldn’t compare to it, naturally attracting the attention of the great forces.
Yang Kai didn’t know much about Rakshasa Sect and had only learned about it from Qin Pei on the way here. Rakshasa Sect’s history wasn’t long, and its founder was the current Sect Master, Yu Luosha. It had only been a few hundred years since then, so less than a thousand years was indeed a short time for a Sect.
Most of the disciples in the Sect were orphans and had basically been brought back by the disciples who had gone out to travel. The atmosphere in Rakshasa Sect was quite good, and the Senior Sisters and Junior Sisters were all friendly and kind. Even if there were some minor conflicts, it wouldn’t be a big deal. On the other hand, Rakshasa Sect was in charge of a nearby city, and most of their expenses came from this city, as well as the mineral lode.
Since she wanted Yang Kai to become a guest Elder of Rakshasa Sect, Tao Yingruo naturally wanted Yang Kai to understand more about Rakshasa Sect, so she reported a lot of things to him. Originally, a guest Elder’s status was not comparable to an orthodox Elder’s, but Yang Kai’s cultivation had far surpassed hers. In the future, Rakshasa Sect would still have to rely on him for protection, so Tao Yingruo and the others would naturally lower themselves to him.
If it weren’t for the fact that Yang Kai was a man, it would have been possible for him to become the Sect Master.
After listening to so many reports, Yang Kai felt a bit dizzy. Tao Yingruo obviously noticed this and sighed in her heart, thinking that she had really been trying to judge a gentleman’s heart with her own narrow-mindedness. Seeing Yang Kai like this, even if she really gave him the Rakshasa Sect, he might find it troublesome. It was laughable that she was actually worried that he had other intentions.
However, it was precisely because of this that Tao Yingruo felt more at ease with Yang Kai. With such a person protecting Rakshasa Sect, as long as they were given enough time, why would they be afraid that Rakshasa Sect would not rise to prominence?
After asking Yang Kai if he was willing to become an official Elder of Rakshasa Sect, Yang Kai politely declined and she immediately gave up.
“The Anointment Ceremony has already been prepared. This Mistress is preparing to hold it half a month from now. I wonder if Elder Yang can wait?” Tao Ying asked.
Hearing this, Yang Kai thought for a moment before nodding, “Sure.”
He had roughly guessed Tao Yingruo’s intentions and wanted to announce it to the world during the Anointment Ceremony. After all, although she had ordered people to spread the news that Yang Kai had come to Rakshasa Sect to become a guest Elder, there was no evidence to back up her words, so how could anyone believe her? However, the Anointment Ceremony was different. It was an extremely formal ceremony. Once the ceremony was over, it would mean that Yang Kai had really been branded by Rakshasa Sect, something no one could deny.
Yang Kai estimated that if Tao Yingruo still sent out invitations, many people would come to bear witness.
These trivial matters were left up to her. After all, she didn’t have any malicious intentions or selfish motives, she was just thinking about the Rakshasa Sect.
Seeing that Yang Kai had no objections, Tao Yingruo smiled and stood up, “Since that’s the case, Elder Yang, please rest for a while.” Saying so, she shot a glance towards Qin Pei.
Qin Pei immediately stood up and said, “Elder Yang, please follow me.”
Yang Kai nodded, stood up, and bid farewell to the others before following Qin Pei out.
Rakshasa Sect’s territory wasn’t large, but it wasn’t small either. Although it wasn’t as grand as the Hundred Peaks of High Heaven Palace, it still had twenty or thirty peaks. As Qin Pei flew towards the highest and most precipitous mountain peak with the densest Spiritual Qi, she gently landed.
Inside the Jade Pavilion, a dozen female disciples immediately came to greet him.
Qin Pei waved her hand for them to stand up, then pointed at Yang Kai and said, “This is my Rakshasa Sect’s guest Elder Yang. In the future, all of you must serve him well.”
“Yes!” The dozen or so female disciples replied respectfully. Some of the bold women secretly glanced at Yang Kai before quickly lowering their eyes.
Qin Pei turned to look at Yang Kai and said, “This place was originally the Sect Master’s residence. When Senior Sister Tao heard that Elder Yang was coming, she ordered someone to clean it up. Elder Yang, if there’s anything you don’t like, please let me know. I will do my best to adjust it.”
Yang Kai was slightly surprised, “The place where Sect Master Yu resides? That’s not appropriate.”
Since this was the Sect Master’s residence, what is the meaning if he, a Guest Elder, stayed here? Although Yu Luosha had died, Rakshasa Sect would certainly have another Sect Master. Wasn’t this the same as a dove occupying a magpie’s nest?
Qin Pei pursed her lips and smiled, “This is Senior Sister Tao’s idea, Elder Yang doesn’t need to refuse.”
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before nodding, “Alright, I’ll have to trouble Junior Sister Qin.”
Hearing Yang Kai address her as such, Qin Pei couldn’t help being stunned for a moment, but soon a smile appeared on her face, “Then Senior Brother Yang should rest first. If there’s anything you need, just let them know and they’ll satisfy you.”
After bowing, Qin Pei took her leave, but Yang Kai couldn’t shake the feeling that she was staring at him meaningfully before she left, and her words were quite tempting.
A group of female disciples served him to satisfy any of his requests, it's difficult to want more.
Yang Kai stroked his chin and turned to glance at the dozen or so female disciples, causing them to immediately lower their heads.
Seeing this, Yang Kai’s eyes lit up.
These dozen or so female disciples, regardless of their cultivation, were all outstanding beauties with exquisite figures. This was not surprising; the entire Rakshasa Sect was filled with women, so it was naturally not a problem to find some beautiful women.
Just now, Yang Kai hadn’t paid much attention to them, but now that he looked at them, he found that each of these women had their own unique temperament. Some were dignified, some were charming, some were quick-witted, and some were naive. Especially the two women in the lead, one of them had a pair of watery eyes, as if she was naturally covered in a layer of mist. Being stared at by Yang Kai, she immediately blushed and lowered her head while pursing her red lips. Each of her actions inadvertently exuded a strong charm, making one want nothing more than to embrace her and dote on her.
Yang Kai had seen this kind of natural charm many times, but only Shan Qingluo, this enchanting queen, was stronger than her. This kind of charm wasn’t intentional, but rather a natural one. This was what was most important to men.
Yang Kai clicked his tongue in wonder. He didn’t know if the Rakshasa Sect had a similar Bewitching Art, but if they did, allowing this woman to cultivate it would definitely yield twice the results with half the effort.
On the other hand, the other woman gave Yang Kai a pure feeling, as if she had no impurities at all. She was soft and delicate, as if anyone looking at her would be a blasphemy, but it was this extreme purity that gave him a desire to destroy her.
Needless to say, these people were all chosen from Rakshasa Sect, and the two leading them were probably the two most outstanding female disciples of Rakshasa Sect.
Yang Kai smiled to himself. It seemed that Tao Yingruo had put in a lot of effort for him, sending these two fairies here. Coupled with what Qin Pei had said before she left, if Yang Kai had even the slightest idea, he would have something to do with these two female disciples.
If something really happened, would Yang Kai not consider the consequences of his actions?
Women were indeed thinking too much, but Yang Kai could understand the thoughts of Tao Yingruo, Rakshasa Sect’s higher-ups. There was nothing in the entire Rakshasa Sect that was worthy of Yang Kai’s attention, other than beauty.
This wasn’t a honey trap, it was just a small trick, so Yang Kai didn’t blame her. With so many beauties accompanying him, it was better than being alone or facing a group of men. At the very least, it was more pleasing to the eye.
“Disciple Ran Yirou greets Elder Yang.” The pure and flawless female disciple bowed gracefully.
Immediately after, another charming woman also hurriedly bowed, “Disciple Yu Keren greets Elder.”
