Yu Rumeng’s Heart Seal Secret Technique was undoubtedly very powerful. Those who weren’t affected by this Secret Technique would never be able to understand the helplessness they felt.
At that moment, it was as if the person he had hit was not Yu Rumeng, but Su Yan or Xia Ningchang!
Forcefully resisting the urge to investigate her situation, Yang Kai turned around and continued to use his Divine Sense to investigate the situation inside the funnel.
A rustling sound came from behind him, and Yang Kai didn’t need to look to know that it was Yu Rumeng who had stood up again. Although his palm strike was fierce, it didn’t really have any intention of killing her, it would only injure her so she can't disturb him.
“I just… don’t want to see you get hurt!” Yu Rumeng’s weak voice rang in his ears.
Before Yang Kai could react to what she was saying, his expression suddenly changed as he stared at the funnel with his eyes wide open and quickly withdrew his Divine Sense.
However, he was still too late. The Divine Sense he had spread out was instantly cut off, causing him to let out a muffled groan as his face paled.
With his Divine Sense damaged, this kind of injury could be said to be extremely serious. Unless he had some kind of peerless miracle pill to repair it, he would need to spend a great deal of time slowly nourishing it.
Yang Kai had the Soul Warming Lotus, so he wasn’t worried about this. Under the nourishment of the Soul Warming Lotus, this kind of injury would quickly recover.
What shocked him was that there was actually someone guarding this funnel, an existence that even he had to look up to. It was this person who had sensed Yang Kai’s Divine Sense and cut it off.
Not only that, but a trace of killing intent also spread out.
Yang Kai didn’t dare to remain where he was and quickly retreated, grabbing Yu Rumeng’s waist as his Space Laws fluctuated and he disappeared.
Only now did he understand what Yu Rumeng meant.
She obviously knew this would happen.
Quickly retreating, they soon left the range of the Demonic Qi and rushed towards Star Soul Palace’s group.
Looking down, Yu Rumeng’s face was pale and the veil covering her face was dark red. Although her life wasn’t in danger, her expression was still somewhat dispirited. It was unknown if she had been injured by Yang Kai’s palm strike or if her heart had been broken, but the latter possibility was extremely high. At this moment, her head was tilted to the side like a wooden puppet.
Yang Kai’s mouth twitched as if he wanted to say something, but in the end he couldn’t. He could only take out a few pills and pass them to her, “Eat them.”
Yu Rumeng remained indifferent, as if she hadn’t heard him.
Yang Kai could only reach out and pull off her veil, open her mouth, and stuff the pills inside.
“Pah!” Yu Rumeng turned around and spat out the pill.
The corner of Yang Kai’s mouth twitched as he said hatefully, “If you don’t want to eat, then forget it!”
“Haha!” Yu Rumeng glanced at him and let out a strange laugh before turning her head to the side.
Hurriedly rushing over to Xue Zhengmao and the others, everyone rushed over to ask about the situation.
Yang Kai handed Yu Rumeng over to Lan Xun while shaking his head, “There’s someone guarding it, and… it seems to be the Night Shadow Great Emperor!” He had indeed detected a trace of the Night Shadow Great Emperor’s aura.
“What?” Xue Zhengmao and the others’ eyes widened.
After a moment of silence, Xiao Yuyang asked, “Does Night Shadow Great Emperor collude with the Demon Territory?”
“I don’t know,” Yang Kai shrugged.
“That’s possible,” Xue Zhengmao said thoughtfully.
“What do you mean?” Yang Kai looked at him curiously.
Xue Zhengmao hesitated for a moment before asking, “Yang Kai, do you still remember the whole story of what happened in the Plain Palace a few years ago?”
“Of course I remember.” This matter was somewhat related to the Demon Race, but what did it have to do with Night Shadow Great Emperor?
“When the Demon Tribulation broke out, someone lured you out of the Plain Palace and tried to assassinate you. At that time, that person attacked without leaving any trace and almost killed you?”
“That’s right,” Yang Kai nodded. He had told many people about this matter later and wanted to ask them who the one who had attacked him was, but no one had given him an answer. Thinking about it now, Yang Kai still felt some lingering fear. The one who had attacked in the darkness was silent, and if it weren’t for his special physique, it was likely he would have been killed. The one who had attacked had failed to kill him in one blow and immediately fled far away, making it impossible for him to even investigate the identity of the enemy.
Shocked, Yang Kai asked, “Shadow Killer Palace?”
Xue Zhengmao nodded and said, “If that person’s actions were really as you described, then only Shadow Killer Palace in this world can cultivate him. However, although we had some guesses at the time, this matter involved a Great Emperor, so we didn’t dare to jump to conclusions, but now it seems that the Shadow Killer Palace and Night Shadow Great Emperor really colluded with the Demon Territory.”
The Demonic Tribulation of the Southern Region had the shadow of Shadow Killer Palace's assassin, and the Night Shadow Great Emperor of the Western Region had personally taken action, which was enough to explain many things.
“But… why was it me?” Yang Kai couldn’t understand why he had been lured out to for assassination.
Xue Zhengmao said, “If the Demon Territory really intends to invade the Star Boundary, there will definitely be a great war in the near future. At that time, you, who is proficient in Space Laws and can arrange Space Arrays, will be of great use, so they want to eliminate you.”
These words sounded familiar.
Yang Kai looked towards Yu Rumeng who was sitting cross-legged not far away.
“For example, right now you can arrange a Space Array and bring the masters from the other three regions here as quickly as possible.”
Yang Kai nodded, his doubts suddenly becoming clear.
Xue Zhengmao sighed, “Of course, these are just guesses, no one knows if this is the truth.”
Yang Kai nodded and composed himself before saying, “There’s no time to lose, I’ll send out the news first and gather everyone here.”
The Void Corridor was guarded by the Night Shadow Great Emperor, so it was no longer a problem he could solve by himself. Now that the Bright Moon Great Emperor and Iron Blood Great Emperor had disappeared, if he wanted to suppress the Night Shadow Great Emperor, he would have to ask the other Great Emperors.
Spirit Beast Island!
Fortunately, he had exchanged the Space Spirit Bead with Li Wuyi before, otherwise he would have been helpless.
There was no need to re-establish a Space Array. There was already a Space Array in the abandoned oasis three days away from this place, not to mention he had other means of transportation.
After spending some time refining a Space Spirit Bead into a bracelet, he called Lin Yun’er over and handed it over to her, solemnly reminding her, “Wear this on your hand and don’t put it in your Space Ring.”
“I understand,” Lin Yun’er nodded and put on the bracelet.
Yang Kai glanced over at Yu Rumeng, who was healing her injuries, before activating his Space Law and activating Li Wuyi’s Space Spirit Bead.
When the ripples passed, Yang Kai disappeared.
Ten minutes later, on Spirit Beast Island, Yang Kai was led by Li Wuyi to see Beast Military Great Emperor Mo Huang.
A strange look appeared on Mo Huang’s face as he asked, “Boy, why are you here again?”
It had only been a few years, but this little brat had actually come to Spirit Beast Island again. Mo Huang was truly worried; he didn’t know how his precious daughter would react.
“Sir, something has happened,” Li Wuyi said with a solemn expression.
“What is it?” Mo Huang frowned. The last time Li Wuyi had said this to him, Yao Lin was captured. This time, the situation was obviously worse, because Li Wuyi’s expression was much more serious than before.
Li Wuyi turned to look at Yang Kai, indicating for him to answer.
Yang Kai didn’t waste any time and simply explained what had happened.
Mo Huang was shocked and asked in a low voice, “Night Shadow Great Emperor actually colluded with the Demon Territory?”
Yang Kai said, “It’s just a guess, there’s no way to verify it, but this little brat is certain that there is a Great Emperor guarding that Void Corridor, and his aura is similar to that of Night Shadow Great Emperor, severing this little brat’s Divine Sense. Now that Senior Bright Moon and Senior Iron Blood are nowhere to be found, and the Demonic Qi of the Western Regions has erupted, this little brat can only come here to ask for Senior’s help. There’s no time to lose, so I ask Senior to leave as soon as possible. If we’re late, I’m afraid the situation in the Western Regions will be quite dire.”
Mo Huang stood up and said, “If what you say is true, then it really isn’t just a matter of the Western Region, this king naturally cannot stand by and watch.” After a moment of silence, he turned to Li Wuyi and said, “Go to Ghost Palace and bring Ghost Emperor here. His daughter is also there, so he can’t just sit back and watch.”
“Yes!” Li Wuyi nodded and left.
There must be some Space Spirit Beads left behind by him in the Ghost Palace. With this method, he could freely travel between Spirit Beast Island and Ghost Palace, and it wouldn’t be long before he brought back the Ghost Great Emperor.
This result surprised Yang Kai quite a bit. He had come to Spirit Beast Island with the intention of asking Mo Huang to help him, but he hadn’t expected that he would also be able to convince the Ghost Great Emperor to help him.
There was no need for him to mobilize any more people. If these two Great Emperors couldn’t solve this problem, it would be useless even if they had more people.
While waiting, Mo Huang asked about the situation over there, and Yang Kai naturally told him everything he knew.
After hearing this, Mo Huang’s expression became gloomy, “It seems that the Demon Territory is really going to invade the Star Boundary, but why would Night Shadow collude with the Demon Territory? What benefits can the Demon Territory give him?”
Yang Kai looked at him and asked, “Is Sir unable to guess the reason?”
Mo Huang slowly shook his head, “Among the ten of us, Night Shadow is the most mysterious and has not had much contact with others. In fact, I have only met him a few times and have spoken less than ten words. This king knows nothing about his temperament, so naturally I have no way of guessing.”
Yang Kai wore a strange expression as he asked, “There are rumors in this world, such as Sir and the others, do not know if the Night Shadow Great Emperor is male or female. Is this true?”
Mo Huang laughed loudly, “Of course Night Shadow is a man, how could there be such a ridiculous rumor in this world?” As he laughed, he suddenly frowned, “It’s hard to say, this king has never seen his true face before.”
Yang Kai was dumbfounded. So the rumors were true.
Sure enough, Mo Huang and the others didn’t know if Night Shadow Great Emperor was a man or a woman! But no matter what his gender was, Night Shadow was still a Great Emperor who stood at the peak of this world. Just as Mo Huang had said, what could the Demon Territory give him? He had actually colluded with the Demon Territory.
