[TL:There will be changes in Ghost Great Emperor Name, it will now be Serene Soul Great Emperor, following the wiki. His sect will be Serene Soul Palace. Beast Military will be Beast Martial/Martial Beast Great Emperor.] _
After ten minutes, Li Wuyi returned.
Naturally, Serene Soul Great Emperor also here.
This was the first time Yang Kai had seen the Serene Soul Great Emperor in person. At first glance, he would have thought that this was a half-grown old man with an ordinary appearance, but when his Divine Sense swept over the place where the Serene Soul Emperor was, he could not detect any aura.
Each of the ten Great Emperors had their own unique abilities. For example, Mo Huang was proficient in Beast Taming, Wondrous Pill Great Emperor was proficient in Alchemy, and Serene Soul Great Emperor was the most proficient in Soul.
Of course, there was now Tian Yan in this world.
However, ever since Tian Yan had reconstructed his body, he had gone out to travel the world, and now he didn’t know where he was. It was also because of the Serene Soul Great Emperor’s proficiency in the Divine Soul that Hongchen Greaat Emperor had immediately sought him out after leaving the Star Fragments Sea, wanting him to help him solve the problem of him and Wu Kuang sharing a body. Unfortunately, even the Serene Soul Great Emperor was unable to help him.
Yang Kai remembered that Mo Huang had mentioned that Serene Soul Great Emperor’s real name was Yao Jun.
As soon as the two sides met, Yao Jun turned to Yang Kai and asked, “Boy, is what you said true?” He had obviously heard about the situation in the Western Regions from Li Wuyi on the way here, so he also noticed the seriousness of the situation and wore a solemn expression.
“Sir, go take a look yourself and see if what this little brat said is true,” Yang Kai replied solemnly.
Yao Jun nodded slightly and looked towards Mo Huang.
Mo Huang said, “There’s no time to lose, let’s set out. This king wants to see what Night Shadow is up to.”
Yang Kai immediately activated his Space Laws and wrapped them up, immediately communicating with the Space Spirit Bead he had given to Lin Yun’er, causing ripples to spread out and the group of four disappeared.
When they reappeared in the barren land of the Western Region, Yang Kai found that everyone had changed their positions, and the place they had stopped at was obviously not the same place they had been before.
“Greetings, Sirs!” Seeing Yang Kai pull the two Great Emperors over so quickly, everyone from Star Soul Palace was overjoyed and cupped their fists in greeting, their hearts finally relaxing.
Previously, they had been completely helpless, but now that they had two Great Emperors supporting them, they naturally had a backbone.
Mo Huang and Yao Jun gently nodded before opening their eyes and looking forward, frowning. They discovered that the situation in front of them was even worse than what Yang Kai had told them. The area covered by the Demonic Qi had more than doubled in size.
It was also because the Demonic Qi was spreading too quickly that everyone was forced to retreat, unable to remain where they were.
When Yao Lin saw her father appear, she burst into tears and threw herself into his arms to complain, as if she wanted to vent all her fear and grievances.
Yao Jun repeatedly comforted her. It was obvious that he also doted on his daughter.
“Sirs, the center of this Demonic Qi is the sand funnel I mentioned to you before. There is a Void Corridor there, and the Demonic Qi is coming from that Corridor. If we can destroy that Corridor, I think we will be able to contain this crisis,” Yang Kai said as he pointed forward.
“Did you also escape from that tunnel? Was that funnel connected to an independent small world?” Mo Huang asked.
“Yes,” Yang Kai nodded.
Understanding this, Mo Huang fell silent for a moment before turning to Yao Jun and asking, “Shall we go take a look?”
Yao Jun nodded and said to her, “Be good and wait, Father and Uncle Mo have some things to do.”
“I don’t want to,” Yao Lin pouted, “Father, I want to go back to the Eastern Region, I want to go back to Serene Soul Palace, please take me back quickly, I won’t run around by myself again.” In the past, whenever she ran around, she would always be taught a lesson by Serene Soul, but she never changed. Whenever she found an opportunity, she would secretly run away. After suffering such a big loss this time, she finally remembered how good her family was and secretly made up her mind to never leave Serene Soul Palace again. The outside world was simply too dangerous.
“Don’t make a fuss, Father has business to attend to,” Yao Jun's expression became serious.
Yao Lin wanted to continue pestering him, but he suddenly pointed at Yang Kai and said, “If you don’t listen, I’ll hand you over to him.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help but roll his eyes. The relationship between the two of you was so deep, what does it have to do with me? However, he still showed his white fangs to her cooperatively.
Yao Lin's face went pale and she quickly waved her hand, “No, no, I’ll listen to you. Father, you should come back soon.”
Yao Jun nodded and exchanged a glance with Mo Huang before the two of them flew into the boundless Demonic Qi and disappeared.
Although Demonic Qi was extremely corrosive and infectious, a cultivator could still resist it if they used their full strength. On the other hand, at the Great Emperor level, it was more than enough to ignore the Demonic Qi’s power and allow them to freely enter and exit.
With these two taking action, the others didn’t need to do anything but wait quietly.
Yang Kai looked around and slowly walked over to Yu Rumeng’s side. She had been healing her injuries while Lan Xun had been taking care of her. However, Yang Kai’s palm had injured her quite badly, and even now, her face was still pale, the blood on her clothes extremely glaring.
“Is she alright?” Yang Kai asked.
Lan Xun slowly shook her head, “It’s nothing serious, She'll be able to recover in a few days. Was Senior Sister Li injured by the Night Shadow Great Emperor?”
Previously, Yu Rumeng and Yang Kai had gone to the Void Corridor together, but after returning, they had ended up in such a state. Yang Kai had also brought back information about the Night Shadow Great Emperor guarding the Void Corridor, so she naturally had this guess.
Hearing this, Yang Kai felt awkward and didn’t know how to explain himself, so he could only try to be vague. He couldn’t say that Yu Rumeng had been injured by him, so there was no way he could explain himself.
Fortunately, Lan Xun didn’t ask any questions.
“Junior Sister is also a bit tired, take a rest first, I’ll take care of things here,” Yang Kai looked at her with concern. Perhaps it was because of the Bright Moon Great Emperor, but Lan Xun had always been somewhat absent-minded. Coupled with her previous encounter, she really did look exhausted.
Hearing this, Lan Xun nodded, “Then I’ll have to trouble Senior Brother Yang.” Saying so, she walked to the side and sat down cross-legged.
Yang Kai looked around and noticed that everyone was adjusting their breathing and paying attention to the Demonic Qi, so he secretly sent a voice transmission to Yu Rumeng, “How do you feel?”
Yu Rumeng opened her eyes and glanced at him before closing them again, not saying a word.
“Ahem…” Yang Kai’s face became awkward and his tone became extremely soft, “Are you angry?”
This was an obvious matter, so Yu Rumeng must be angry. If it was him, Yang Kai estimated he would also be angry. However, the situation at that time was truly dire, and he only wanted to destroy the Void Corridor as soon as possible, but at that critical moment, Yu Rumeng had used her Heart Seal Secret Technique to disturb him, so in a moment of desperation, he had no choice but to do so.
“You should have made it clear to me,” Yang Kai scratched his face, “If you had made it clear beforehand, I wouldn’t have done so.”
“If you can’t handle it, I’ll let you hit me once, no, ten times. Don’t be angry, it won’t be good if others find out.”
“Speaking of which, how are you going to explain this to Flower Shadow Great Emperor? Li Shiqing is Flower Shadow Great Emperor’s disciple, it’s impossible for her to not care about her own disciple. She’s a Great Emperor and also Li Shiqing’s master. You can deceive others, but can you deceive her? What if your identity is exposed?”
After talking for a while, Yu Rumeng completely ignored Yang Kai and didn’t say a word.
Yang Kai’s hair stood on end as he muttered to himself like a madman, but in the end, he was the one in the wrong, so he could only grit his teeth and swallow his anger. In the end, he reluctantly said, “Then you should heal your injuries first. Call me if you need anything.”
Saying so, he walked forward.
“Come back!” Yu Rumeng suddenly called out.
Yang Kai stopped and asked, “Aren’t you ignoring me? Why are you calling me back?”
“I told you to come back!” Yu Rumeng gnashed her teeth.
Yang Kai stubbornly said, “What do you want to do, say it first?”
“Are you coming back?”
Yang Kai was so angry that he couldn’t help laughing. You’re the one who’s ignoring me, and you’re the one who’s asking me to go back. What do you want? Why is this woman acting like a child? He had never met a woman with such a personality before, so although it was refreshing, it was also somewhat unbearable.
“You can do whatever you want. Whether you’re angry with me or ignore me, after this matter, you can go your own way and I’ll cross my own wooden bridge. We won’t have anything to do with each other.” Yang Kai steeled his heart and said what he had been wanting to say all this time, suddenly feeling a great sense of satisfaction, as if he had just vented his anger.
Yu Rumeng was immediately angered, her entire body trembling as she shouted, “You actually dare to say such things to me, heartless smelly man!”
Yang Kai sneered, “I’m a stinky man, you and I were just strangers who met by chance. It was you who insisted on using some kind of Secret Technique to forcibly bring us together. How could you force a relationship, let alone that bullshit Secret Technique? You don’t understand what kind of person I am, that’s my true nature. If you can’t stand it, you should quickly remove this Secret Technique.”
“In your dreams,” Yu Rumeng sneered.
“It’s up to you. After this matter, we’ll part ways!”
“Good, since you said so, I’ll tell them I’m the fake Li Shiqing right now. The real Li Shiqing has long been killed by me.”
The corner of Yang Kai’s eyes twitched as he stubbornly said, “That’s your own business, what does it have to do with me?”
Hearing this, Yu Rumeng fell silent.
Yang Kai quietly turned his head and saw her quietly staring at him with a look of despair.
He sneered in his heart, Do you think I’ll be soft-hearted just by showing such an expression? I’ll take this opportunity to cut all ties with you…
Thinking so, Yang Kai couldn’t help taking a few steps back and standing beside Yu Rumeng, rubbing his chin as he looked up towards the sky.
Yu Rumeng smiled, “Sit beside me.”
“Enough, don’t push your luck!” Yang Kai rolled his eyes.
Yang Kai shot a glance towards the front, “It won’t be good if they see through this.”
Yu Rumeng curled her lips but didn’t insist.
