Yu Rumeng was a woman who could change her attitude faster than flipping a page of a book, so she couldn’t bear the slightest bit of grievance. Now that Yang Kai’s tender affection had broken through her psychological barrier and she was now being viciously insulted, the huge disparity between them was something she couldn’t accept. For some reason, she felt like she had been betrayed by the person she trusted the most.
This kind of injury was far more serious than the last time she had been injured by Yang Kai. Last time, at the very least, there was a reason for it and it was easy for her to recover from her injuries, but this time, she really felt injured, so it was no wonder she was so angry.
Yang Kai just smiled at her, as if he hadn’t said those words just now.
Seeing his unrepentant attitude, Yu Rumeng became even angrier and sneered, “Apologize, I can spare you!”
Yang Kai smiled and slowly shook his head.
“Are you sure you want to do this?” Yu Rumeng’s beautiful eyes turned cold.
Yang Kai replied firmly, “If I say it out loud, it’s like I’m splashing water, how can I take it back? If you want me to apologize, I’ll have to die.”
“As you wish!” Yu Rumeng suddenly sat cross-legged in front of him and stared at him coldly, her face turning pale as she let out a muffled groan.
At the same time, Yang Kai felt like his head was about to explode.
I knew you would do this! Yang Kai couldn’t bear the pain, but he was secretly delighted. If Yu Rumeng didn’t do this, all his efforts would have been in vain.
It was as if there were thousands of swords wreaking havoc in his mind, and the unimaginable pain was simply unbearable. After a while, Yang Kai’s face became as pale as paper and beads of sweat dripped down his forehead.
On the other hand, Yu Rumeng wasn’t any better. Her Heart Seal Secret Technique was a bit strange, but the drawbacks seemed to be quite big as well. She was the type of person who would suffer a great loss if she tried to use this method to torture Yang Kai to vent her anger.
A short while later, Yu Rumeng’s entire body was drenched in sweat, as if she had just been pulled out of a pool of water, but she grit her teeth and didn’t say a word, only staring at Yang Kai with a look that said, if you don’t apologize, I won’t let you off.
The forced smile on Yang Kai’s face became extremely distorted, while Yu Rumeng’s expression became even colder.
Inside the secret room, both the man and woman were trembling non-stop, their faces pale and sweat dripping from their foreheads. It was obvious that both of them were enduring great pain, but none of them showed any signs of weakness. This scene was quite strange.
Under such pain and torture, time seemed to stretch endlessly.
Yang Kai had truly experienced what it meant to feel like a year had passed, but when he looked inside his Knowledge Sea, there was still no abnormal movement.
Not enough! Far from enough.
Yu Rumeng suddenly spoke up, “If you can’t stand it… then just say… if you say something, perhaps… if my heart softens, I will let… you off!”
Yang Kai stared into her eyes and grinned, “Good!”
Yu Rumeng also began to laugh, “Does it feel good?”
Yang Kai nodded vigorously.
Yu Rumeng said hysterically, “Then I’ll make you feel better.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the intense pain suddenly intensified and his entire Knowledge Sea felt like it was about to be torn apart. The sea water in his Knowledge Sea churned violently as if it was boiling.
Yang Kai’s vision went black as his consciousness became somewhat blurry. Looking towards Yu Rumeng, her tender body also swayed and she nearly fell to the ground. However, the two of them were not ordinary people, and their Spiritual Energy was extremely powerful. Even though they were in so much pain, they still managed to support themselves, each of them wearing a look of unwillingness on their faces, waiting to see who would fall first.
For Yu Rumeng, if she didn’t teach Yang Kai a lesson this time, she wouldn’t be able to ask him for anything in the future.
As for Yang Kai, if he couldn’t persist this time, he probably wouldn’t be able to dispel the Heart Seal Secret Technique.
Each of them had their own plans, so they naturally had to confront each other to the end.
After an unknown period of time, Yu Rumeng’s aura gradually weakened. Although she was strong and her Spiritual Energy was also extraordinary, under such a great consumption, she would eventually be unable to cope.
Yang Kai’s attainments in Spiritual Energy might not be as high as hers, otherwise he wouldn’t have been implanted with the Heart Seal Secret Technique without noticing it. Logically speaking, in this competition, Yang Kai should be even worse than her.
But Yang Kai had the Soul Warming Lotus.
The Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus continued to emit a seven colored light in his Knowledge Sea, replenishing the consumption of Yang Kai’s Divine Sense and nourishing his Soul. With such a powerful support, how could Yu Rumeng fight back?
As such, although Yu Rumeng’s Divine Sense was stronger, Yang Kai’s current state was even better.
Yu Rumeng also noticed this and a trace of suspicion flashed across her eyes. She knew that she couldn’t delay any longer and if she continued to delay like this, she would fall first.
A look of determination flashed across her beautiful eyes as she said in a low voice, “Yang Kai, this is your last chance. I don’t want you to apologize, just don’t insult me again in the future. Let’s just forget about this matter.” She had undoubtedly made a big concession, otherwise, according to her anger just now, unless Yang Kai sincerely apologized, how could she let this matter go so easily?
Yang Kai looked like he was about to collapse, but slowly shook his head.
“Do you really want to perish together with me?” Yu Rumeng’s eyes were somewhat blank.
“Are you willing?” Yang Kai asked.
Yu Rumeng was stunned for a moment before slowly closing her eyes, lightly saying, “I can’t bear to, but… no one can insult me!”
Her beautiful eyes suddenly opened, and her originally weak eyes suddenly became incomparably bright. The Heart Seal Secret Technique had been pushed to its limit.
Yu Rumeng let out a miserable cry as blood poured out from her seven orifices, her aura becoming extremely weak. Looking at Yang Kai, she let out a miserable laugh before collapsing to the ground.
Yang Kai remained motionless like a mountain, his eyes tightly shut. The moment Yu Rumeng pushed her Heart Seal Secret Technique to its limit, Yang Kai’s Soul Avatar appeared in his Knowledge Sea.
His Knowledge Sea churned as if it was about to explode.
In the sky above his Knowledge Sea, the image of a woman suddenly appeared. The image was hazy and indistinct, as if it had always been there but had never been seen until now.
Yang Kai’s heart trembled as his Soul Avatar almost collapsed under the effects of the Heart Seal Secret Technique. Fortunately, at the critical moment, the Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus released a brilliant light that enveloped him and stabilized his Soul Avatar.
Not daring to hesitate, Yang Kai commanded the Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus to rush towards the woman’s illusory figure, causing a brilliant light to spread out and envelop the illusory figure, drawing it into the lotus.
The next moment, the illusory figure disappeared again, and the boiling sensation in his Knowledge Sea gradually calmed down, the unbearable pain completely dissipating.
Yang Kai suddenly felt like he had been reborn.
He flew above the Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus and carefully examined it, but he didn’t find any clues, nor did he find any trace of the woman’s phantom.
Although it was just a glimpse, Yang Kai could still tell that this was Yu Rumeng’s true appearance. Because their figures were similar, the only difference was their appearance.
Yu Rumeng’s current appearance was that of Li Shiqing, not herself.
She had also said that her true appearance was no worse than Li Shiqing’s, but now it seemed she was telling the truth.
Even Yang Kai was amazed by this scene.
What kind of situation was this?
He didn’t hesitate to ruthlessly insult Yu Rumeng in order to stimulate her to activate the Heart Seal Secret Technique in order to find a flaw in this Secret Technique and break free from this Secret Technique’s restraint. From the scene just now, he had succeeded because he had managed to grasp the trace of the Heart Seal Secret Technique at the last moment and used the Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus to take it away.
However, it was only taken away and not destroyed!
Was this a success or a failure? What made Yang Kai even more confused was why the Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus, a supreme treasure of Heaven and Earth, had not reacted to the invasion in his Knowledge Sea?
Logically speaking, if someone tried to invade his Knowledge Sea and harm him, the Soul Warming Lotus should have made some movements, but it just so happened that the Heart Seal Secret Technique was not present.
Could it be that the Heart Seal Secret Technique didn’t have any harmful effects? Thinking about it this way, it was also possible that Yu Rumeng had used this Secret Technique to forcefully link them together without any intention of harming him.
After pondering for a moment, Yang Kai flew over to the top of the Soul Warming Lotus and looked down, unable to see anything.
Activating the Soul Warming Lotus’ power slightly, a seven colored light burst out and a woman’s figure appeared on the lotus.
Yang Kai could feel that if he were to steel his heart, he should be able to destroy this illusory figure and break the Heart Seal Secret Technique from its roots, severing the connection between him and Yu Rumeng. However, after thinking about it carefully, he didn’t immediately do so, instead dispersing his Soul Avatar and opening his eyes again.
Yu Rumeng was lying on the ground not far away, her entire body drenched in sweat, her clothes clinging tightly to her body, revealing her exquisite figure, her face pale as paper and her breathing weak.
Her last attempt had also caused great damage to herself.
Yang Kai looked at her with a complicated expression, suddenly realizing that he didn’t feel much heartache.
Although he had insulted Yu Rumeng fiercely just now and had been as determined as she was, he had only forced himself to do so. If he had been in his previous state, seeing Yu Rumeng like this, he would have definitely felt his heart ache.
However, at this moment, he could bear it.
The effect of the Heart Seal Secret Technique was greatly reduced!
Yang Kai was overjoyed. He had not suffered in vain.
Moving a little closer, Yang Kai came to Yu Rumeng’s side and stretched out his hand to help her lie down on his lap while Yang Kai looked down at her.
This woman’s origins and purpose in approaching him were worth investigating.
Yang Kai had some guesses in his heart, but whether or not it was as he had thought, he still had to confirm.
Since she was in a coma, perhaps he could take this opportunity to explore the secrets of her Knowledge Sea.
Thinking so, Yang Kai lowered his head and touched her forehead, sending his Divine Sense into her Knowledge Sea.
