Inside the main hall, Yang Kai, who had received the news, hurriedly rushed over with Mo Xiaoqi. Before he even entered, he saw two Emperor Realm masters guarding the entrance, each of them exuding a strange aura that gave Yang Kai a sense of familiarity.
Thinking about it carefully, this aura was somewhat similar to the aura of the cultivators from Underworld Sect. He immediately understood that these two Emperor Realm should be from the Ghost Palace, but since these two were Emperor Realm, their status in Ghost Palace was definitely not low.
Could it be that Ghost Great Emperor had personally come? Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat as he quickened his pace.
To be honest, if it really was Ghost Great Emperor, Yang Kai didn’t know how to face him. After all, he had nearly killed Yao Lin back then, making him soul descend to guard her.
However, after thinking about it carefully, although he had killing intent back then, he hadn’t really done anything. In the end, it was all because of Yao Lin. As long as Ghost Great Emperor was reasonable, there was no reason for him to blame Yang Kai, otherwise he wouldn’t have let him go back then.
Feeling assured, he walked into the hall under the watchful eyes of the two Emperor Realm.
Inside the main hall, Li Wuyi was talking with a woman in a palace dress. The woman’s face was cold and her hair was tied up high. She wore a light green dress that accentuated her enchanting figure. Her chest was high and her waist was tied tightly with a silk ribbon, making her slender waist look like it could only be held in one hand. She was about thirty years old, and her charm was limitless.
Behind the woman stood an old woman with white hair and cloudy eyes, looking like she was about to die.
However, whether it was the woman or the old woman, both of them were at the Emperor Realm, especially the cold woman, whose cultivation had reached the Third-Order Emperor Realm. Although the old woman was not at the Third-Order, she was still at the Second-Order.
When Yang Kai arrived, the woman’s cold face showed a look of anxiety and anger, obviously impatient from waiting. When she spoke to Li Wuyi, she was just casually saying a few words, seemingly distracted.
Seeing Yang Kai enter, the woman and the old woman simultaneously turned their eyes towards him, causing Yang Kai to feel as if he was being pointed at by two sharp swords.
Yang Kai frowned, a look of confusion appearing on his face. He didn’t recognize this woman or the old woman, but he could clearly feel a clear hostility from these two, and this hostility was directed towards him.
What the hell, I don’t have any enmity with you, right? Yang Kai silently cursed.
“Yang Kai is here,” Li Wuyi stood up.
Yang Kai cupped his fists, “Senior.”
Li Wuyi nodded and said solemnly, “This is Lady Rong from Ghost Palace. Lady Rong wishes to ask about what you saw that day, so you must answer truthfully. Lady Rong is also Yao Lin’s birth mother.”
Yang Kai was surprised, but after taking a closer look at Lady Rong, he couldn’t help thinking that it was no wonder he had felt that this woman was somewhat similar to Yao Lin. So it was because they were mother and daughter, no wonder. However, if she was the mother of Yao Lin, wouldn’t she be the wife or concubine of Ghost Great Emperor?
No wonder Li Wuyi wanted to accompany her personally. With the backing of the Ghost Great Emperor, Spirit Beast Island obviously couldn’t afford to be negligent.
Thinking so, he cupped his hands and said, “Greetings, Lady Rong.”
Li Wuyi pointed at Yang Kai and said, “Lady Rong, this is the Yang Kai I told you about. When your daughter was in trouble, he was nearby and could be considered a witness. If you have any questions, feel free to ask him.”
Lady Rong’s beautiful eyes stared at Yang Kai, her expression gloomy. It was unknown if she had heard Li Wuyi’s words, but she asked lightly, “Are you that Yang Kai?”
‘What do you mean I’m that Yang Kai?’ Yang Kai frowned. Was there really a lot of Yang Kai in this world? Nodding, he said, “Yes, I am Yang Kai!”
Lady Rong continued to ask, “Did you personally witness Lin’er being captured that day? Are you sure you didn’t see wrongly?” There was no problem with her question, but her tone was somewhat questioning.
Li Wuyi also heard this and couldn’t help frowning as he looked at Lady Rong suspiciously. He could faintly feel that she was somewhat hostile towards Yang Kai, but according to what he knew, this Lady Rong spent most of her time in Ghost Palace, so what kind of conflict could she have with Yang Kai?
Since others weren’t polite, Yang Kai naturally wouldn’t be too enthusiastic and said indifferently, “I’ve already reported everything I saw that day to Senior Beast Military. I believe Senior Beast Military has already sent a message to Ghost Senior. If Madam doesn’t believe me, you can ask Xiaoqi. Xiaoqi was also present at that time.”
Mo Xiaoqi nodded and said, “That’s right, that was indeed Older Sister Yao Lin who was captured by a black-robed old man.”
With her confirmation, the last bit of hope in Lady Rong’s heart disappeared. If she could still doubt Yang Kai’s words, then she could not doubt Mo Xiaoqi’s words.
Mo Xiaoqi and Yao Lin knew each other, so naturally they couldn’t be mistaken. Coupled with the current situation, it was clear that Yao Lin had been captured.
After a moment of silence, Lady Rong looked at Yang Kai and gritted her teeth, “Why didn’t you save her?”
Yang Kai looked up at her in surprise and asked, “How?”
Lady Rong said angrily, “Do you need to be taught how to save people? Since Lin’er was captured, of course she was to be taken back. Are you just going to sit back and watch that person take Lin’er away and do nothing?”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “I’m afraid Madam doesn’t know that the person who attacked us that day was a Pseudo Emperor.”
“So what if it's a Pseudo Emperor?” Lady Rong was a bit hysterical, “A Pseudo Emperor is also a human, how could a Pseudo Emperor attack Lin’er? Did a Pseudo Emperor scare you away?”
Yang Kai’s face sank, “Is Madam accusing me?”
What the hell was she doing? This matter involved Ghost Palace, so Yang Kai didn’t have any objections when the other party came to question him. With Beast Military Great Emperor's instructions, Yang Kai was prepared to cooperate. After all, that was the situation back then.
Who would have thought that this Lady Rong would not only be hostile towards him, but also accuse him of not saving her? Yang Kai really wanted to pry open her head and see if it was filled with water.
Was this how it was for Ghost Great Emperor’s concubine?
“Impudence!” The old woman standing behind Lady Rong shouted angrily at Yang Kai, “How dare you speak to Madam like this, slap your face!”
Yang Kai blinked his eyes, a look of confusion appearing on his face. It was one thing to encounter such a strange woman like Lady Rong, it could be explained that she loved her daughter dearly and spoke without thinking. What kind of situation was this old woman in?
Seeing Yang Kai’s indifferent expression, the old woman became even angrier and shouted, “What are you waiting for?!” Her pair of muddy eyes flashed a terrifying light as she glared at Yang Kai.
The corners of Yang Kai’s mouth twitched as he stared at her, “You want me to slap myself?”
The old woman sneered, “Since you like to pretend to be ignorant, don’t blame this old woman for bullying the weak.” As soon as she finished speaking, her withered figure flew up like a giant bird and slapped towards Yang Kai’s face. The Emperor Qi in her palm surged and it seemed she really wanted to slap Yang Kai’s mouth.
Yang Kai flew into a rage, “Respecting the old and loving the young is my virtue, but it is not something you can rely on!”
Originally, Yang Kai didn’t want to lower himself to the old woman’s level. After all, she was an old woman, so Yang Kai didn’t want to bully her, but since she had already slapped him, how could he remain indifferent? Yang Kai’s Emperor Qi shook as he sent out a palm strike.
Li Wuyi put his hand to his forehead and sighed. He hadn’t expected things to turn out like this. He had thought it was just a routine question, but who would have thought that after just a few words, they would actually start fighting?
As an outsider, he naturally knew who was right and who was wrong, and he was also a bit angry. After all, this was Spirit Beast Island. Even if Yang Kai wasn’t from Spirit Beast Island, he was still a friend of his Young Lady. Even if she was from Ghost Palace, shouldn’t they at least give some face? If she wanted to slap his Young Lady’s friend on Spirit Beast Island, what kind of face would Spirit Beast Island have?
As such, even if he had the ability to stop this conflict, he didn’t rush to act. He wanted to teach this old woman a lesson and let her know who was the master here.
Although the old woman was also a Second-Order Emperor Realm like Yang Kai, one was on the verge of death while the other was filled with vigor and vitality. What’s more, how could Yang Kai be an ordinary Second-Order Emperor Realm? Li Wuyi knew that the old woman was destined to suffer greatly.
Sure enough, under Yang Kai’s counterattack, the old woman’s imposing attack was nothing more than an embroidered pillow. The moment her palms touched Yang Kai’s, the old woman’s expression suddenly changed as she felt an ocean-like force bombard her. Her palm didn’t have any reaction at all, instead, it was the other party’s palm that enveloped her.
With a loud bang, the old woman tumbled a few times before landing heavily on the ground. A few of her teeth flew out as she struggled to her feet, but before she could even get up, she spat out another mouthful of blood, her momentum suddenly weakening as she looked up at Yang Kai in disbelief, “You dare attack me?”
Her words were somewhat shallow, after all, she had lost several teeth.
Yang Kai sneered at her and waved his hand, “You can try again!”
After a series of unforeseen events, Lady Rong, who was watching from the side, was also dumbstruck. It was only at this moment that she came to her senses and shouted angrily, “Brat, you’re courting death!”
Although this old woman’s relationship with her was that of a master and servant, they were as close as mother and daughter. Seeing the old woman suffer a loss, the woman, who already disliked Yang Kai, no longer cared about her status and immediately wanted to teach Yang Kai a lesson to vent her anger.
As she circulated her Emperor Qi, a deep shout came out, “Enough!”
Space seemed to solidify as Lady Rong felt as if a great mountain was pressing down on her, making it difficult for her to even breathe. With a gloomy expression, she turned her head to the side and shouted, “Li Wuyi, what are you trying to do!”
Even if Li Wuyi hadn’t really taken action, just slightly activating his Space Laws was enough to stop her from taking action.
Li Wuyi’s face sank as he stared at her and lightly said, “This King just doesn’t want Madam to look too ugly. I hope Madam can take care of herself.” Did this short-sighted woman think she could do whatever she wanted just because she was a minor realm above Yang Kai? If he didn’t stop her, she might be beaten by him.
