The Star Soul Palace’s dozen or so Emperor Realm had clearly entered this place before him, but he hadn’t seen a single one of them. This was quite strange.
However, if the entrance had a random teleportation effect, it would explain the current situation. Yang Kai had once entered a similar Secret Realm, and although the entrance was the same, the people who entered would not appear in the same location.
Judging from the current situation, this Secret Realm should be one of these existences, which was why Yang Kai couldn’t see anyone else when everyone else had entered. The others were probably the same, probably all of them now fighting alone.
However, this also had its benefits. If everyone split up, there would be a higher chance of finding Lan Xun—if she was really here.
After confirming that there was no danger around him, Yang Kai began to examine his surroundings. The World Energy in this gray world wasn’t very rich, and the entire world seemed to be a bit lifeless. It was probably impossible for such a place to give birth to any kind of treasure. At first glance, this place was similar to some places in the Western Regions. It was filled with sand, gray rocks, and some small plants. There was no aura of life in this place.
But for some reason, as soon as Yang Kai entered this place, he felt an inexplicable sense of dread, as if there was some great danger hidden here.
Standing in place for a moment, Yang Kai randomly chose a direction and flew forward.
This was indeed a small independent world. Although it had its own World Laws, they were not complete and were somewhat similar to the original Mysterious Small World. Moreover, the area was not small. Yang Kai flew forward for half a day but didn’t see anything worth paying attention to, nor did he find any traces of Xiao Yuyang and the others.
They seemed to have evaporated.
There was no difference between day and night in the Secret Realm, and it was always in such a gloomy state. The surrounding environment was also very similar. Being alone in such a desolate environment made it easy for one to feel tired. After another day, Yang Kai, who was looking around, suddenly raised his brow and looked forward.
Someone was here!
A dozen or so kilometers ahead, Yang Kai could feel the aura of a living being, so he immediately directed his eyes towards it.
The man seemed to have noticed Yang Kai’s gaze, and after a flash, he flew off in a certain direction.
It wasn’t easy for Yang Kai to encounter a living person in this damned place, so how could he miss this opportunity? Immediately flying through the air, Yang Kai chased after him, but soon discovered that this person’s speed was incredibly fast. No matter how hard he tried, he was unable to close the distance between him and this person. Moreover, this person’s Divine Sense was extremely powerful, so Yang Kai was unable to see through his true appearance and cultivation. As soon as his Divine Sense approached him, it was blocked by an invisible force.
Yang Kai suddenly felt like he was being played, and although he was annoyed, he also felt that the other party wanted to lead him somewhere.
After making some guesses, Yang Kai deliberately slowed down a little and found that, just as he had expected, the guy in front of him had also slowed down. He sped up a little more and the other party also sped up!
Damn it! Yang Kai flew into a rage and no longer hesitated, immediately giving chase.
Although he knew that there might be some kind of trap waiting for him up ahead, this was still a clue, so even if he knew there was a tiger on the mountain, he could only walk towards it.
After chasing for about an hour, Yang Kai’s expression suddenly twitched.
Because in that instant, he had lost the other party’s aura, and the other party seemed to have disappeared from this world without a trace.
On the other hand, not far in front of him, there were several distinct auras belonging to other people, three of which Yang Kai found somewhat familiar.
Thinking so, Yang Kai raised his brow and quickly rushed over.
Not long after, he arrived at a high slope filled with stones. On this high slope, there were five figures sitting cross-legged, four women and one man.
When Yang Kai’s eyes swept over her, he couldn’t help feeling happy and quickly called out, “Yun’er!”
Among the five figures, one of them was actually Lin Yun’er. Although he had learned on the way here that Lin Yun’er had also disappeared, Yang Kai had also guessed that it was the same group of people who had capture her, but he had never expected to find her here.
Looking around at the others, Yang Kai found that as expected, Yao Lin, who had been captured in the East Sea, and Lan Xun, who had disappeared in the Southern Domain, were all here. Yang Kai didn’t know the remaining man and woman, but with all the previous information he had gathered, he was able to guess that this man and woman were either related by blood to the Great Emperor or were direct disciples.
The men had a fair complexion, a handsome appearance, and appeared to be about thirty years old. The other woman was covered in a thin veil, making it impossible to see her true appearance, but from her exquisite and enchanting figure, this woman’s appearance was definitely extraordinary.
Yang Kai didn’t rush over. He had been lured here by someone, otherwise he wouldn’t have been able to find these missing Great Emperor’s children or disciples so quickly.
Why did this man draw him here? What kind of scheme was he plotting? Being in such an unfamiliar environment, how could Yang Kai not take precautions?
“Yun’er!” He called out again, but Lin Yun’er, who was sitting cross-legged opposite him, showed no reaction, as if she had fallen into a deep sleep.
Yang Kai’s Divine Sense wandered back and forth, but he was unable to discover the aura of the people who had lured him here, nor did he discover any traces of traps around Lin Yun’er and the others. These five people seemed to have been used by someone and had fallen into a deep sleep, unable to perceive the outside world at all.
Of these five people, besides Yao Lin who was a Third-Order Principle Source Stage master, the other four were all Emperor Realm, especially the veiled woman whose cultivation was the highest, comparable to Yang Kai, a Second-Order Emperor Realm.
This woman should be the disciple of Flower Shadow Great Emperor, right? As expected of a great master. Although Yang Kai couldn’t see her face clearly, he was certain she wasn’t too old. For her to have such a high cultivation, it was clear she was extremely talented.
However, after thinking about how the person who had captured Yao Lin was a Pseudo Emperor, Yang Kai felt relieved. Although these five people’s strength was not bad, they were still far inferior to a Pseudo Emperor. If they were really targeted by a Pseudo Emperor, no one would be able to escape.
Standing in place for a moment, Yang Kai strode towards Lin Yun’er and the others.
Whether it was a blessing or a curse, Yang Kai couldn’t avoid it. Since he had found Lin Yun’er, Lan Xun, and the others, Yang Kai naturally couldn’t just sit back and watch. No matter what, he had to wake them up and ask about the situation first.
At the very least, they had to know who had attacked them and what their ultimate goal was.
Not long after, Yang Kai arrived in front of these people. To his surprise, everything seemed to be as calm as before, with nothing out of place.
He directly walked up to Lin Yun’er, stretched out a finger, and placed it on her forehead, gently activating his Emperor Qi and Divine Sense to investigate the situation inside her body.
There were no injuries, no abnormalities, and Lin Yun’er’s vital signs were very stable. However, at this moment, Lin Yun’er seemed to have fallen into a strange state, her Knowledge Sea fully opened, and she was completely unaware of the outside world.
In other words, if someone wanted to harm her at this time, they could easily do so.
Realizing this, Yang Kai couldn’t help letting out a sigh of relief. He had been worried that Lin Yun’er and the others had been implanted with some kind of strange seal, but if that was all, he had a way to awaken them.
Activating the Golden Holy Dragon’s Origin, Yang Kai sent his Divine Sense into Lin Yun’er’s Knowledge Sea and transformed it into a giant dragon head, roaring, “Yun’er, wake up!”
Dragon Roar! The most basic of the Dragon Race’s Secret Techniques had the ability to suppress one’s Soul.
The sound of a dragon’s roar reverberated throughout Lin Yun’er’s Knowledge Sea, causing ripples to spread out one after another. When these ripples spread out, Lin Yun’er’s Knowledge Sea was filled with monstrous waves, and soon after, her Knowledge Sea became clear, as if something was breaking.
Lin Yun’er let out an unconscious whimper as she frowned before slowly opening her eyes.
With her vision focused, Yang Kai’s face appeared in front of her.
Lin Yun’er blinked her eyes in confusion.
“Yun’er, how do you feel?” Yang Kai asked nervously. Although he had used the Secret Technique of the Dragon Race to awaken her, doing so in her Knowledge Sea could easily injure her.
“Uncle… Uncle Yang?” Lin Yun’er was obviously still in a daze as she stared at Yang Kai, “Why are you here?”
Yang Kai smiled slightly, “I’m here to find you. Don’t worry about me for now, what about you? Are you feeling unwell?”
When Lin Yun’er heard this, she checked her own condition and smiled casually, “I’m fine.” Suddenly, she frowned, “It’s just…”
Yang Kai’s expression changed as he became nervous, “What is it?”
“I’m a little… hungry!” Lin Yun’er stretched out her hand and rubbed her stomach before sticking out her tongue at Yang Kai.
Yang Kai’s mouth twitched.
It was only now that he remembered that this little girl had somehow been raised into a glutton by the side of the Iron Blood Great Emperor. The last time he had met her, she had been like this. This time, she had just escaped danger and was already clamoring for food.
What a big stomach!
“If you’re hungry, find something to eat first. I’ll wake them up,” Yang Kai said before walking over to Lan Xun.
“What happened to them?” Lin Yun’er seemed to have just discovered that there were others around her, her eyes widening in surprise.
“You don’t remember?” Yang Kai turned to look at her.
Lin Yun’er suddenly revealed a thoughtful look and after a long time, she clapped her hands and said, “Oh, I remember now, I was captured by someone. That old man is so strong, I can’t beat him.”
“Old man?” Yang Kai raised his brow, “Is it an old man wearing a black robe?”
Lin Yun’er shook her head, “He’s not wearing a black robe and has a head full of white hair, I don’t recognize him.”
A head of white hair? Yang Kai was a little stunned. He remembered that the guy who caught Yao Lin last time was not a head of white hair, so the one who attacked Yao Lin and Lin Yun’er was not the same person?
