“Young Lady means…” Yang Kai looked at her suspiciously.
“I want to ask you a favor,” Lady Bing replied.
Yang Kai smiled, “Young Lady has saved my life, if there is anything I can help you with, please feel free to ask.”
Lady Bing said, “Don’t be in such a hurry to agree, it won’t be too late to think about it after listening to me. Although this matter isn’t that difficult to handle, if you really do it, it’s very likely you’ll anger Master and even make her want to kill you. If that’s the case, would you still be willing?”
Yang Kai raised his brow, “Can Young Lady explain in detail?”
Although he was certain Bei Li Mo wouldn’t really kill him, after all, the Demon Territory’s World Gate needed him to be repaired, so no matter how angry she was, if she wanted his life, she would have to ask the other Demon Saints of the Demon Territory if they would agree. However, he had already offended Bei Li Mo once, so if it was possible, Yang Kai didn’t want their relationship to deteriorate further. Letting a Demon Saint bear a grudge was not a good thing.
Inside the ice sculpture, Lady Bing was silent for a moment, seemingly considering something before finally saying, “I have an artifact that can seal a forbidden technique I created. It is extremely powerful and I want you to use it on my Master.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s pupils shrank, “You want to kill her?”
In his heart, he couldn’t help feeling a bit strange. From what this Young Lady Bing had just said, she was still very respectful towards Bei Limo. Even if the man she loved was tortured to death, even if she was imprisoned in the 18th layer of the Ice Prison, she didn’t have the slightest bit of resentment towards her. In fact, when Yang Kai scolded Bei Limo, she seemed a bit unhappy and even spoke out to protect her, but now she suddenly had such a request, it was really confusing.
Lady Bing couldn’t help laughing, “Master is a Demon Saint, how could I possibly kill him? Not to mention that I don’t have the ability to do so, even if I did, it would be impossible.”
“Then why did you…” Yang Kai frowned in confusion.
Lady Bing let out a faint sigh, “This is just an explanation. When that man was humiliated to death by Master, I didn’t ask for anything in return. Although I also lost my rationality and attacked Master afterwards, it was useless. Perhaps if I had asked for a favor back then, Master would have spared him out of consideration for our many years of master-disciple relationship. For so many years, although I was frozen in ice and was on the verge of death, I still couldn’t feel at ease. Now that my time is up, I’m afraid it won’t be long before I go to the Netherworld to accompany him. This is an explanation I’ll give him. When we meet in the Netherworld, I can also tell him that I have avenged him, but my strength is limited…”
Although Lady Bing’s tone was calm, Yang Kai could feel her sadness and understood what she was trying to convey.
Young Lady Bing continued, “The 18th floor of Nether Cold dIce Prison is an extremely dangerous place. For so many years, no one has been able to leave alive. I thought that this forbidden technique would no longer be useful, but I didn’t expect to run into you at the last moment. Do you think this is the will of the Heavens? Since this is what the Heavens want, I can take this opportunity to fulfill a wish of mine. Of course, don’t worry, although this forbidden technique’s power isn’t small, it definitely can’t do anything to my Master. After all, she is a Demon Saint, but she will definitely investigate something after this. As long as you tell her what I said today, she won’t make things too difficult for you.”
Listening to this, Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a bit conflicted. If this Lady Bing had asked him for something else, it would have been fine, but to use a powerful Forbidden Technique to deal with Bei Li Mo, wasn’t that a bit too childish? Even if she said that Bei Li Mo wouldn’t make things difficult for him after this, who knew what kind of attitude that crazy woman would have? If her provoked her, who would save him?
However, since he had already made such a big promise, if he were to refuse now, it would seem like he was going back on his word. After pondering for a moment, Yang Kai said, “I won’t hide it from Young Lady, I’m not a Demon Race, I’m a human, and I’ve never cultivated any Ice Attribute Cultivation Technique or Secret Techniques. Since Young Lady is a Snow Demon, it’s likely she cultivates the Ice Attribute Law. Is that thing useful to me?”
Lady Bing said, “It has nothing to do with you, you just need to activate it at will and use the Forbidden Technique. I also know that this request is a bit unreasonable, if you don’t want to, then forget about it.”
Yang Kai raised his hand and stopped her, “Young Lady is trapped here and can’t even protect herself. Since you’re willing to save me, how could I refuse to help you with such a trivial matter?” He had also thought about it, and since it wasn’t good to refuse, he could only agree. In any case, he would just have to take a risk in front of Bei Li Mo. At worst, if he dragged Yu Rumeng along, Bei Li Mo wouldn’t be able to do anything to him.
“Then I must thank you. If that’s the case, I can die in peace,” Lady Bing thanked him happily. At the same time, a soft light suddenly blossomed from her chest inside the ice sculpture. This light stretched out as if something was about to break out of her body.
In the next moment, with a flash of light, a hole appeared on the ice sculpture, and a half foot needle appeared in front of Yang Kai, as if it had been carved from ice. With a gentle force, it floated in front of Yang Kai.
Young Lady Bing’s voice rang out, “This Profound Dark Needle contains one of my Forbidden Techniques, but I don’t know how powerful it is because it was created after I was imprisoned here. I’ve never tested it before, but it’s definitely not small. I can see that the relationship between you and Master isn’t very good, so you can keep it for now. If she attacks you one day, you can use it to block her…”
This was quite a good proposal, and Yang Kai’s eyes lit up when he heard it. This was equivalent to having an additional trump card. Although it was a consumable, the requirements for obtaining it couldn’t be too high, so he asked, “How long can it stop her?”
“Ten breaths at most, maybe three!” Lady Bing quickly replied.
Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a bit disappointed, but when he thought about Bei Li Mo’s Demon Saint cultivation, he couldn’t ask for too much. Just as he was about to put away this Profound Dark Needle, he remembered that Bei Li Mo had placed a restriction on him that even his Space Ring couldn’t open, so he couldn’t help asking awkwardly, “Where should I put it?”
Lady Bing couldn’t help laughing, “It was my negligence.” After pondering for a moment, she said, “How about this, I’ll plant it in your hands so it’ll be convenient for you to use it, but I don’t know if you trust me or not.”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and said, “Young Lady, please do as you please.”
It wasn’t easy for him to trust others. Although he had a good impression of this Lady Bing and was grateful for her help, he wasn’t willing to put his trust in her. The reason he was so straightforward was because he was certain that even if she harbored ill intentions, it wouldn't be so bad.
He had indeed been sealed by Bei Li Mo and his cultivation had been sealed, but his Soul had been protected by the Soul Warming Lotus and his physical foundation had not disappeared. Even if this Lady Bing really had some kind of ulterior motive towards him, after being sealed in ice for so many years, there was nothing she could do to him.
Lady Bing obviously didn’t expect Yang Kai to agree so readily, so she was stunned for a moment before saying, “You have to bear with it for a moment, it might hurt a little.”
Yang Kai nodded and motioned for her to come.
In the next moment, the Profound Dark Needle floating in front of Yang Kai trembled slightly and shot out like a bolt of lightning towards Yang Kai’s wrist.
Feeling the pain, Yang Kai felt a cold aura in his wrist, but it quickly disappeared. Yang Kai carefully felt it and could clearly feel that there was a foreign object in his wrist, but it had no effect on him, so he immediately relaxed.
Looking down again, he found that there was not even a single wound on his wrist, and couldn’t help feeling admiration for this Young Lady Bing’s methods. In that instant, although he couldn’t clearly determine the strength of Young Lady Bing’s fluctuations, he estimated that she was definitely a Half-Saint.
Waving his hand casually, Yang Kai asked, “Is this enough?”
“That’s enough,” Lady Bing replied, “Now that my wish has been fulfilled, I’m afraid we won’t meet again in the future. You must take care of yourself and…”
At this point, Lady Bing suddenly stopped talking and a gentle force came from the ice sculpture, pushing Yang Kai several hundred meters away. At the same time, the protective force that had been covering Yang Kai’s body suddenly disappeared, and an ice-cold law rushed towards him from all directions, causing Yang Kai to shiver uncontrollably as his hair and face were quickly covered in ice.
This sudden turn of events was too sudden for Yang Kai to react. By the time he came back to his senses, he was already a few hundred meters away, involuntarily shivering.
But soon, he understood why Lady Bing’s reaction was so fierce, because a powerful aura suddenly approached from above.
Even though his cultivation had been sealed, Yang Kai could still feel Bei Li Mo’s aura.
This guy actually ran down by herself.
Sure enough, a moment later, a snow-white figure appeared behind the 18th floor ice prison.
Yang Kai had also been hiding in the corner of the room since a long time ago, his entire body covered in ice and frost, his face pale and his lips purple.
Bei Li Mo’s beautiful eyes swept over and saw Yang Kai’s figure. The corners of her mouth curled up slightly as she revealed a teasing smile. Her waist swayed slightly as she slowly walked over to Yang Kai and lifted her jade foot to touch his calf, “Are you dead?”
Yang Kai curled up into a ball, but when he heard this, he raised his head with difficulty and glanced over, “Damn you… I won’t die!”
Bei Li Mo sneered, “You still have the strength to curse? It seems you’re still far from death, just wait here. If you want to die, tell me and I’ll collect your corpse.”
Saying so, she turned around and walked away, showing no mercy.
However, she didn’t manage to leaave because Yang Kai used his remaining strength to grab her ankle, his expression filled with grief and indignation. He also knew that this woman had come to see him make a fool of himself on purpose. Perhaps she still wanted him to lower his head and apologize to her, but the situation was different. No matter how unhappy Yang Kai was, he had to consider a way out.
If he continued to get closer to this crazy woman, he would be the one to suffer.
