After the time it took for an incense stick to burn, Bei Li Mo carried Yang Kai out of the Ice Prison and threw him to the ground.
At the same time, Yang Kai’s Emperor Qi, which had been trapped inside his body for so long, was finally released and began flowing freely. Yang Kai felt a chill run down his spine as he silently circulated his Profound Technique, forcing out the chill in his body as he stared into the distance, feeling as if he had just seen the sun again.
He had been locked up in the ice prison for the past few days and was quite bored.
“Regarding the World Gate, you can go to the Holy City to find Bai Ya. He will cooperate with you!” After saying this, Bei Li Mo floated away, not even bothering to look at Yang Kai.
Stone Demon, who was guarding the Nether Cold Ice Prison, walked over and cupped his fists, “Brother Yang, this King was just following orders and had offended you. Please forgive me, Brother Yang.” In all his years of guarding the Nether Cold Ice Prison, this was the first time he had seen someone walk out alive, and this person was actually brought out by the Saint Venerable personally. Although Yang Kai had been imprisoned on the eighteenth floor and no one except the Saint Venerable had dared to enter, this was still an incredible feat.
If it weren’t for the Saint Venerable's high regard for this human, how could she have personally come here? Therefore, in Stone Demon’s opinion, this human was worth befriending.
Yang Kai glanced at him from the corner of his eyes and coldly snorted before waving his sleeves and turning around to leave, leaving Stone Demon behind with an awkward look on his face before gritting his teeth.
Just a mere human, what arrogance!
Yang Kai didn’t go directly to Proud Snow Continent’s Holy City but instead went to find his subordinates. After the ten thousand people were brought here, they had been stationed outside the Ice Palace. He had been thrown into the Ice Prison by Bei Li Mo, so he didn’t know what had happened to them. It was fine if it was just the others, but he didn’t want anything to happen to Li Shiqing.
When he arrived, Yang Kai couldn’t help letting out a sigh of relief.
The tens of thousands of people still maintained their original appearances, as if they hadn’t moved at all in the past few days.
Seeing Yang Kai appear, Tu Qialuo, Yin, Ba Zha, and the other Demon Kings all rushed forward to greet him with concern.
A few days ago, the Proud Snow Ice Guards had taken action and frightened them greatly. They had all thought that Yang Kai had angered Bei Li Mo in the Ice Palace, causing them to lose their lives here, but they hadn’t expected that the Proud Snow Ice Guards would only trap them for a few days before suddenly retreating.
As soon as the Proud Snow Ice Guards left, Yang Kai appeared.
As soon as they met, Yang Kai asked a few simple questions and learned about their recent encounters, but he didn’t pay too much attention to it. Yang Kai estimated that Bei Li Mo had mobilized the Proud Snow Ice Guards in order to prevent Yin and the others from leaking information to Yu Rumeng. Although Yu Rumeng was able to drop her soul to Xiao Wu in times of crisis, who knew what kind of triggering conditions she would need?
Li Shiqing also cast a look of concern towards Yang Kai from behind. Yang Kai glanced at her and nodded slightly before ordering Bo Ya and Yin to go to Proud Snow Continent’s Holy City to look for Bo Ya. The rest naturally remained here.
Li Shiqing was eager to follow, but Xiao Wu tugged on her sleeve and stopped her.
The Holy City was a hundred kilometers away and was easy to find. Bo Ya had been here before, so she naturally wouldn’t get lost.
Entering the Holy City, Yang Kai found someone to inquire about the location of Bai Ya’s mansion, and a moment later, a group of three appeared in Bai Ya’s mansion. The servants of the mansion went to inform him while Yang Kai sat in the living room, waiting for the host to arrive.
Not long after, Bai Ya rushed over and cupped his fists, “Sorry for making Brother Yang wait.”
Yang Kai raised his head and glanced at him, a bit annoyed as he said, “Brother Bai Ya, you’re not very kind.”
It was only later that he understood a few things. At Bei Li Mo’s place, he had been affected by the aphrodisiac effect. Fortunately, the Soul Warming Lotus had been able to expel the medicinal effects, otherwise he would have suffered a great loss. At that time, Bai Ya must have also been affected, otherwise he would not have left in such a hurry.
Combined with his performance, Yang Kai was certain that Bai Ya had definitely sensed it at the time. Even a Half-Saint was unable to resist the effects of this medicine, which showed just how powerful it was. If he didn’t have the Soul Warming Lotus, he would probably still be lying on this woman’s belly.
Hearing this, Bai Ya was stunned for a moment before bursting into laughter, “Brother Yang, please forgive me. I was also a victim back then, so I really couldn’t do anything about it.” Revealing a look of concern, he asked, “Did the Saint do anything to you? I heard that after you angered the Saint, you were thrown into the Nether Cold Ice Prison and imprisoned on the eighteenth floor!”
“Brother Bai Ya is in the Holy City, so he is quite well-informed,” Yang Kai snorted.
The corners of Bai Ya’s mouth twitched, “Brother Yang, are you blaming me for not speaking up for you? I must ask Brother Yang to be magnanimous about this. The Saint Venerable has her own reasons for doing things, as a subordinate, I really can’t say anything!” In his heart, he also found it funny. He had nothing to do with him, so how could he risk offending the Saint Venerable for him?
“Forget it!” Yang Kai waved his hand, “I know Brother Bai Ya is willing, but his strength is insufficient, so I don’t blame you. Fortunately, all of this was just a scare.”
Bai Ya asked, “How did Brother Yang anger the Saint? She actually throw you into the Nether Cold Ice Prison. That damned place is not something an ordinary person can enter.”
Yang Kai looked at him with a smile, “Brother Bai Ya, if you want to know, you can ask the Saint Venerable directly, but it’s not convenient for me to tell you.”
Bai Ya let out a hollow laugh. Naturally, he didn’t have the courage to ask Bei Li Mo about the details of this matter. No matter what Yang Kai did, it was definitely something that made her extremely angry, otherwise he wouldn’t have been thrown into the Ice Prison. If he ran over to ask her, wouldn’t he be embarrassing the Saint Venerable? The next person to go to the Ice Prison would probably be him.
“Let’s get back to the main point!” Yang Kai tapped his finger on the table, “I’ve been in Proud Snow Continent for quite some time now, but I’ve been imprisoned by the Saint Venerable and wasted a lot of effort. Now that the Saint Venerable has released me, it’s only natural that I should focus on the matter of the World Gate. The Saint Venerable is quite busy, so she asked me to come find Brother Bai Ya and ask him to cooperate with me. If anyone tries to stop me, they will not be spared.” The last two sentences were naturally casually added by Yang Kai. In any case, with the arrow in his hand, even if Bai Ya went to ask Bei Li Mo, it wouldn’t matter.
Hearing this, Bai Ya quickly replied, “The Saint Venerable has already given us some instructions, so if Brother Yang needs anything, please feel free to ask. I will cooperate with you to the best of my ability.”
Yang Kai nodded, “First of all, I need information on all the missing continents, World Gates, and unstable World Gates in the territory of the Saint Venerable.”
Bai Ya immediately pushed a Space Ring over and said, “I’ve already prepared these things, and all the information is inside. Brother Yang, please take a look.”
Yang Kai glanced at him with some surprise before accepting the Space Ring. Sweeping it with his Divine Sense, he found that there were many jade slips inside, most likely containing information about the World Gate and the missing continent.
Putting away the ring, Yang Kai continued, “I’ll also ask Brother Bai Ya to mobilize an army of five hundred thousand and be on standby!”
Bai Ya couldn’t help showing a suspicious look, “Why does Brother Yang want an army of five hundred thousand?”
Yang Kai casually said, “When this King is repairing the World Gate, I need an absolutely quiet environment where no one is allowed to disturb me. When the time comes, I will naturally have to seal off the World Gate’s interior and exterior, so how can I not use some manpower?”
Bai Ya nodded and said, “So that’s how it is, that’s easy.” A mere five hundred thousand people could be easily gathered. In any case, it was just a blockade, so there was no need for them to have a powerful cultivation. All he needed was a few Demon Kings to oversee it. Yang Kai himself had brought ten thousand troops with him, so it was definitely enough. (Hoogsway)
“In that case, Brother Bai Ya, please make some preparations. I’ll study this information first, tomorrow or the day after, i will start.”
“Thank you Brother Yang!”
Bai Ya’s mansion occupied a vast area and naturally had a place for Yang Kai to live. He personally arranged the best guest room for Yang Kai and had someone bring him inside.
With Yin and Bo Ya guarding the door, Yang Kai entered the room and took out the information Bai Ya had given him and the Demon Territory map he had bought, carefully studying them.
After an uneventful night, the information Bai Ya had given him wasn’t much, so he didn’t need to spend too much time studying it. However, Yang Kai had other plans in mind. If he wanted to put these plans into action, he needed to plan carefully, so he had wasted some time.
After a night of research, he had gained some understanding of the World Gate in Bei Li Mo’s territory.
In terms of the size of their territory and the number of continents they controlled, Yu Rumeng and Bei Li Mo were almost on par with each other. Yu Rumeng had a dozen World Gates on her side, and over the years, a total of six continents them had disappeared. Yang Kai had used the power of the Ruins of End to find three of them, allowing Gun Gun to swallow them, allowing the space of the Mysterious Small World to expand and even changing its laws.
The situation on Bei Li Mo’s side was similar. There were also more than a dozen World Gates that had gone wrong, even Proud Snow Continent. The number of continents that had disappeared was more than eight.
Five of these continents had a very high chance of entering! As for the remaining three, he would have to find some clues.
However, this was not what excite Yang Kai. What really excite him was that by using one of the continents as a springboard, he would have a chance to enter the Eternal Heaven Continent! As long as he could explore it, he would be able to find out if the Bright Moon Great Emperor had fallen there.
However, this wasn’t something that could be accomplished overnight. No matter how anxious he was, he still had to take things slowly. At the very least, he had to first numb Bei Li Mo and Bai Ya’s nerves so that they would let down their guard before he had a chance to sneak into the Eternal Heaven Continent.
The next day, Yang Kai opened the door and led Bo Ya and Yin to find Bai Ya, telling him that everything was ready and he could act at any time.
Naturally, Bai Ya couldn’t wait for Yang Kai to finish his business as soon as possible, so the two of them quickly reached the nearest World Gate.
Proud Snow Continent had a total of eight World Gates that led to eight different continents. One of them had disappeared while two had problems. At this rate, Proud Snow Continent would most likely disappear from the Demon Territory within a few thousand years.
This place was where Bei Li Mo had risen to power and was also the ancestral land of the Demon Territory’s Snow Demon Clan. It was suitable for the Snow Demon Clan’s cultivation and growth which could not be lost. This was also the reason why Bei Li Mo had personally gone to find Yang Kai. The survival of an ordinary continent was not something she cared about so much.
