So if one were to count, the dead Wu An and Tang Sheng were still fellow disciples, while Ling Yinqin’s seniority was the same as Tang Sheng’s, one generation higher than Lan He.
When Ling Yinqin first came to the Heavenly Wolf Valley, she was only a Third-Order Emperor Realm cultivator, but over the past few years, the Heavenly Wolf Valley had not mistreated her. Coupled with her accumulation, she had finally become an Emperor Realm a few years ago and was promoted to an Elder by Tang Sheng.
Lan He said, “That year in the Star Fragments Sea, Disciple met a person who told Disciple about Elder Ling. After leaving the Star Fragments Sea, Disciple sent someone out to inquire about Elder Ling. Coincidentally, not long after, Disciple obtained some harvest and brought her into the valley.”
Tang Sheng nodded and said, “That’s true. What, do you want to ask Master for credit?” An additional Emperor Realm master would be of great help to Heavenly Wolf Valley, so he thought Lan He was asking for some kind of reward.
Lan He stuck out her tongue and said, “No, I just wanted to say that the person who told me about this matter was called Yang Kai.”
Tang Sheng said, “At that time, he seemed to have saved you once and sent you out from the Void Crack. You also told me about this later…” After saying this, he suddenly seemed to remember something and turned to look at her, “Just now you said you saw a life-saving straw, could it be…”
Lan He pursed her lips and smiled, “Master’s eyes are as sharp as torches, this time I met Brother Yang.”
“He’s in the Eastern Region? Didn’t you say he was in the Southern Region?”
“Yes, he’s from the Southern Domain, but he has some business to attend to in the Eastern Domain.”
“Then, did you bring him back? He is your savior after all, so since we met, we should thank him properly.”
Lan He said, “Of course I brought him back, he’s currently in the guest hall.”
Hearing this, Tang Sheng immediately stood up and glared at her, “Little girl, since you’ve invited him here, why didn’t you say so earlier? Since he’s your benefactor, Master should meet him to express his gratitude.”
Lan He smiled and said, “I’ve already thanked him.”
Tang Sheng said solemnly, “No matter how much you thank him for saving your life, it won’t be enough.”
Lan He took advantage of this opportunity and said, “Actually, he also has something he needs Master’s help with this time. Originally, I was worried that Master wouldn’t agree, but now with your words, I can rest assured.”
Tang Sheng stopped in his tracks and suddenly had a bad premonition. Turning his head to look at Lan He, he asked, “Why do I feel like you’re up to no good? Hm, pouring tea, massaging my back, there’s no need to be so polite!”
“How could that be? How could this disciple be such a person in Master’s eyes?” Lan He pouted, her face filled with dissatisfaction.
Tang Sheng snorted, “Do you think I don’t know what you’re like?” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “It looks like his request this time isn’t small. Tell me, what favor does he want from me?”
Lan He hesitantly said, “Master…”
Tang Sheng said, “Hurry up and say it, otherwise you’ll be punished by my Sect’s rules.” Gently glancing at Lan He’s head, he made her cover her head with her hands.
After pondering for a moment, Lan He said, “He came to the Eastern Region this time to visit Spirit Beast Island, but unfortunately he couldn’t find a way.”
“Spirit Beast Island…” Tang Sheng’s expression changed slightly, obviously realizing something as he nodded lightly, “I understand.”
Spirit Beast Island was an ethereal place that ordinary people couldn’t find. Not to mention an outsider like Yang Kai, even the people of the Eastern Region didn’t know where Spirit Beast Island was, but even if others didn’t know, Heavenly Wolf Valley had a way to find it because a Beast Seeking Envoy from Spirit Beast Island had left behind a token that allowed them to travel to the Eastern Sea and find the approximate location of Spirit Beast Island.
With a faint smile, he said, “It’s just a small matter. Since he is indebted to you, Master will personally accompany him and help him find Spirit Beast Island.” Although the token was the Heavenly Wolf Valley’s greatest reliance, it was only to use it to find the location of Spirit Beast Island. It was not a favor from Spirit Beast Island, so it was not a loss to the Heavenly Wolf Valley. In the future, if the Heavenly Wolf Valley were to encounter any danger, the token would still be of use to them. Using it to repay Yang Kai’s favor was not a bad idea.
Moreover, he could also make friends with this young man. Tang Sheng had also heard from Lan He that this young man’s strength was outstanding and his talent was outstanding. What was even rarer was that he was proficient in the Space Laws, so his future achievements would be limitless.
Looking at Li Wuyi, it was precisely because he was proficient in the Space Laws that he was able to obtain the title of number one below the Great Emperor Realm. In the future, Yang Kai might not necessarily be worse than Li Wuyi. If they could form a good relationship with him, it would be beneficial to Heavenly Wolf Valley in the future.
All sorts of thoughts flashed through Tang Sheng’s mind, but this wasn’t because he was scheming, it was just a normal consideration. Moreover, as the Valley Master of the Heavenly Wolf Valley, he was concerned about the entire Sect, so naturally he was thinking more.
Hearing this, Lan He didn’t show any joy, instead carefully looking at him and stammering, “If that’s all, then it’s fine, but right now Brother Yang’s situation is quite bad.”
“En?” Tang Sheng asked suspiciously, “What do you mean?”
Lan He said, “Master, have you forgotten? He killed many people in the Star Fragments Sea, including two Holy Childs from the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land, Zhang Hao and Zhang Xian…”
Tang Sheng’s expression changed slightly, “Buddhist Heaven Holy Land is looking for trouble with him?”
“And the Underworld Sect…” Lan He’s voice became even softer.
“What?” Tang Sheng’s expression changed drastically.
It was one thing for a top force to find trouble with Yang Kai, but now it was actually two top forces that were trying to find trouble with him? How could he still be alive? Such a hot potato was something others would avoid, so how could he be so stupid as to come to his own home?
Tang Sheng really didn’t know what to say about Lan He, so he angrily reached out and pointed at her.
Lan He said in an aggrieved tone, “Master, didn’t you say that a drop of water should be repaid with a spring? What’s more, he saved this disciple’s life. If he hadn’t sent me out of the Space Crack that year, this disciple would have died long ago.”
Tang Sheng said bitterly, “You’re right, but it’s a matter of time. With the current situation… you’re bringing trouble to my Heavenly Wolf Valley.”
Lan He pouted and said, “Doesn’t our Heavenly Wolf Valley have a token from Spirit Beast Island? Although those two great forces are powerful, they shouldn’t dare attack us, right?”
Tang Sheng said with disappointment, “It’s true that they don’t dare attack us, but don’t forget, since Heavenly Wolf Valley is in the Eastern Region, we must be restrained in all aspects. It’s not because we have a token from Spirit Beast Island that we can act arrogantly. If we anger those two great forces, will my Heavenly Wolf Valley be able to live a peaceful life in the future? Disciples who go out to temper themselves, how can there be any security? You little girl, you’re really infuriating.”
Lan He asked helplessly, “Then what should we do?”
Tang Sheng paced back and forth, pondering for a moment before a look of decisiveness flashed across his eyes, “Right now, we can only deny the matter of the token and dismiss my Heavenly Wolf Valley from this matter before letting him leave.”
“But I’ve already promised him,” Lan He stared at Tang Sheng in disbelief, as if she hadn’t expected her Master to make such a decision, a feeling of disbelief filling her heart.
Tang Sheng shook his head and said, “Your agreement cannot be considered accurate. This King is in charge of the Heavenly Wolf Valley.”
Lan He asked in shock, “Master, do you want this Disciple to be an ungrateful person?”
“Impudence!” Tang Sheng turned his head and shouted angrily, his face filled with dignity. Suddenly, he calmed his tone and said, “Xiao He, you must understand Master and think about the future of these several thousand disciples of Heavenly Wolf Valley. If possible, Master is not willing to do so, but if you help him and protect him, it will be tantamount to becoming enemies with those two top forces. My Heavenly Wolf Valley has established itself in the Eastern Region, so how will we survive in the future? You are not someone who doesn’t understand the big picture, you should understand.”
Lan He opened her mouth but no words came out, her face filled with bitterness.
Now that things had come to this, she didn’t know how to face Yang Kai. After all, she had already spoken her mind, and now she couldn’t fulfill her end of the bargain, so who knew what Yang Kai would think of her?
However, she also knew that since her master had made a decision, there was nothing she could do to change it. After thinking about it for a moment, she asked, “Master, can you hand over that token to me for safekeeping for a while? I’ll take him out of Heavenly Wolf Valley and accompany him to Spirit Beast Island. Once we find Spirit Beast Island, I’ll return.”
Tang Sheng shook his head, “If it weren’t for those two great forces, this wouldn’t have been impossible, but since they want to cause trouble for Yang Kai, you can’t do this. They won’t let you off, what if something happens to you?”
“There’s no need to discuss this matter any further,” Tang Sheng raised his hand to stop her, “Now follow Master to see that Yang Kai.”
Lan He followed behind in a daze.
Halfway down the road, Tang Sheng took out his communication compass and communicated with someone. A moment later, a woman dressed in palace robes flew over. She was the Vice Valley Master of Heavenly Wolf Valley, Qian Xiuying, and also Tang Sheng’s wife.
Glancing at Lan He, Qian Xiuying smiled and asked, “Little He, what’s wrong? Why are you so dispirited? Did your Master lecture you again? Tell me what happened, I will help you.”
Lan He lowered her head and remained silent.
Tang Sheng sighed and briefly explained the situation to her before informing her of his decision.
Qian Xiuying finally understood why Lan He was so depressed. After a moment of silence, she said, “This matter is quite troublesome.”
In her heart, she also felt somewhat indignant to Yang Kai. Since he killed two of their Holy Child and even killed a direct disciple of the Underworld Sect’s Sect Master. Can’t he just stay in the Southern Domain? Why did he have to run to the Eastern Domain? Since you’ve come here, you should at least hide your tracks. Now that you’ve appeared, you’ve been targeted by two top forces and even involved the Heavenly Wolf Valley. Who has the Heavenly Wolf Valley offended?
Although she thought so, she didn’t show it on her face. Qian Xiuying looked at Lan He and asked, “Did he say why he wanted to go to Spirit Beast Island? Did he have any dealings with anyone from Spirit Beast Island?”
Lan He slowly shook her head, “Disciple doesn’t know.”
Tang Sheng said, “Since Yang Kai is proficient in Space Force, he must have gone to Spirit Beast Island to seek advice from Senior Li Wuyi.”
Qian Xiuying nodded and said, “You’re right, so he doesn’t have any special relationship with Spirit Beast Island.”
