High Heaven Palace, which was originally in an orderly fashion, became chaotic because of Yang Kai’s words. All kinds of lights flew up from the Spirit Peaks and flew towards this place.
In front of the Space Array’s main hall, Yang Kai smiled happily while Ye Jinghan stood next to him. At first, she had a worried frown on her face, but when she saw Yang Kai’s expression, the worry in her heart slowly dissipated and her furrowed brow relaxed.
The Palace Master was smiling so happily, how could she be smiling so happily? However, this smile seemed to be extremely infectious, causing her to involuntarily smile as well.
The first to fly over was High Heaven Palace’s Chief Manager Hua Qingsi, and she had not come alone. She had come together with the Second Chief Manager Bian Yuqing.
The reason they were the first to arrive wasn’t because the two women were the fastest, both of them were only First-Order Emperor Realm masters. In High Heaven Palace, it wasn’t like there weren’t people with higher cultivation than them. The only reason for this was because the two women were patrolling nearby.
Seeing this familiar figure from afar, Hua Qingsi and Bian Yuqing were overjoyed. They descended from the sky and cupped their fists together, “Subordinate greets Palace Master and welcomes his return!”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and said with a pleasant expression, “These past few days when this Palace Master wasn’t here, it has been hard on the two Managers.”
Hua Qingsi pursed her lips and smiled, “Not at all.”
Bian Yuqing also said, “It’s my duty.” Looking at Yang Kai with a slightly complicated expression, she couldn’t help thinking back to the first time she met him. At that time, he and Liu Xianyun had just arrived from the Lower Planes Star Field, but Kou Wu had captured them and brought them back to the Blue Feather Sect. Who would have thought that in just a few short decades, this person would become the Sect Master of one of the top Sects in the North Region? She, who had been able to kill him back then, was now under his protection, it could even be said that she was able to ascend to the Emperor Realm because of him.
Recalling the events of the past, she couldn’t help thinking of Kou Wu, who had risked his life to protect her… Outside Maplewoods City’s Spirit Lake Palace, Kou Wu had risked his life to protect his master, not even leaving behind a corpse, causing everyone to feel depressed.
Immediately after Hua Qingsi and Bian Yuqing, a five colored ray of light shot over from the distance and when it arrived in front of them, it dispersed and revealed five figures.
Yang Kai raised his brow and cupped his fists, “Congratulations, Seniors, for your promotion to the Emperor Realm!”
The five people from the second batch were Gui Zu, Chi Yue, Ai Ou, Gu Cangyun, and Chai Hu. Among the five, besides Chai Hu, the other four had arrived at the Star Boundary from the Lower Planes Star Field together with Yang Kai. It was just that after the Starlight Channel collapsed, everyone had split up and then met.
In the past, there was still Wu Dao, the most powerful Void King in the Heng Luo Star Field. Unfortunately, the Heavenly Law was unpredictable, and when Wu Dao broke through to the Principle Source Stage, he was unable to withstand the baptism of the World Energy and died. The other four had just entered the Star Boundary and were living a difficult life. Fortunately, they had met Chai Hu and obtained his help, allowing them to gradually stabilize their position. Later on, the four of them became sworn brothers and sister with Chai Hu, and now, High Heaven Palace had a Five Saint Peak, which was their field.
The last time Yang Kai had seen them, they had only been at the Principle Source Stage, but now they had all broken through to the Emperor Realm. This was truly a cause for celebration.
Of course, this was due to the World Energy Surge in the Star Boundart, but the main reason was that these five people’s aptitudes were quite good. Gui Zu and the others, who were able to jump out from the Lower Planes Star Field, were all top-notch geniuses. Although Chai Hu’s aptitude was a bit worse, it was still quite good. High Heaven Palace had an abundance of cultivation resources, and all of them had been cultivating in seclusion for the past few years due to the Mountain Sealing, so it was not surprising that the five of them had made some progress.
Moreover, Yang Kai also discovered that the five of them must have cultivated an incredible Divine Ability together, and the five colored lights were the most obvious signs. At this moment, although the five of them were only First-Order Emperor Realm, their auras were closely connected, almost becoming one.
Even a Second-Order Emperor Realm would not be a match for them.
Gui Zu let out a strange laugh, “Palace Master, you’ve finally returned. Are we going to kill our way out? This King is about to become moldy.” Gui Zu’s personality was quite sinister. Even Yang Kai had almost died at his hands in the Lower Planes Star Field. At the time, he had been able to call the wind and summon the rain with his Void King Realm cultivation.
However, ever since he came to this Star Boundary, he discovered that his cultivation was only at the bottom. Not only was his cultivation insufficient, but he also had to work hard to make a living. Although he met Yang Kai and came to High Heaven Palace to live a peaceful life, he had always been cultivating in seclusion. Now that he had obtained the foundation of the Emperor Realm, Gui Zu’s hands were itching for a blood sacrifice.
Chi Yue immediately glared at Gui Zu, “Kill what? Big Brother, don’t speak nonsense.” Turning to Yang Kai, she asked, “Is it alright for you to come back?”
Yang Kai slowly shook his head and was about to explain when he suddenly saw a group of people flying towards him.
This time, it was not an outsider, but an old acquaintance of Shadowed Star High Heaven Sect who could be traced back to the Central Capital’s High Heaven Pavilion…
Grand Master Ling Taixu, Meng Wuya, Master Ancestor Chu Ling Xiao, several Martial Uncles, Old Demon, Qiu Yimeng, Dong Qinghan…
Yang Kai quickly stepped forward to greet them, he was helpless. Although he was the Palace Master of High Heaven Palace, most of the people here were his elders, so if he didn’t bow, who would?
After greeting each of the Elders one by one, they began asking questions.
These people were all outstanding talents from their respective worlds and had extraordinary aptitudes, but because they had only been in the Star Boundary for a short time, their current achievements were not as great as Gui Zu and the others who had come here first. However, all of them had cultivations above the Principle Source Stage and were basically at the Second or Third Order.
Seeing Yang Kai looking around while asking questions, Meng Wuya glanced at him and asked, “What are you looking for?”
Yang Kai quickly replied, “Nothing. It’s been a long time since I’ve been back, just seeing something I wanted to see.”
Meng Wuya snorted, “I’m afraid you’re looking for your wives, aren’t you? Boy, you should restrain yourself a bit. Count how many women you’ve provoked and how many wives you’ve found. Back in the Star Field, there were already four of them, but now there’s one more in the Star Boundary. You’ve provoked them, yet you can’t take good care of them. You’ve been running around all day, leaving them alone to guard your room, worrying about your safety. Are you not afraid that one day they’ll hear about your death?”
Yang Kai lowered his head and listened with a guilty expression, “Senior is right.”
“If you know you’re in the wrong, you must change!” Meng Wuya said sincerely, “You can’t fool around outside anymore.”
Yang Kai felt guilty… he didn’t know how to respond.
Fortunately, Grand Master came to the rescue and Ling Taixu smiled, “I ran into them on my way here and they went to pick up your parents.”
When Su Yan and the others heard Yang Kai’s voice, although they couldn’t wait to come over and take a look, the first thing they did was run over to the Spirit Peak where Fourth Master Yang and Dong Suzhu were, preparing to bring the two elders with them.
Although Fourth Master Yang and Dong Suzhu’s cultivations had also improved after coming to the Star Boundary, they were still far from being comparable to the Heaven’s Chosen. Right now, their cultivations were only at the Void King Realm, so their speed was naturally extremely slow. This was also the reason why Su Yan and the others had gone over.
While they were talking, a few figures had already rushed over.
Yang Kai looked up and couldn’t help staring.
It wasn’t joy, but shock.
Su Yan, Xue Yue, Shan Qingluo, Xia Ningchang, all of them came, even Zhu Qing.
What surprised Yang Kai was that Zhu Qing was here. When Yang Kai had first arrived on Dragon Island, he had planned to bring Zhu Qing back to High Heaven Palace to meet his parents and also introduce her to Su Yan and the others so that they wouldn’t feel awkward when they met in the future.
However, Zhu Qing had some scruples at that time and didn’t return to High Heaven Palace with Yang Kai.
Who would have thought that after returning this time, he would actually see Zhu Qing and Su Yan walking side by side, and from the looks of it, they seemed to be getting along quite well?
Without thinking too much about it, in the blink of an eye, his parents had arrived and Yang Kai quickly went to greet them.
Before he could say anything, Dong Suzhu had already burst into tears, tears streaming down her face as she grabbed Yang Kai’s arm and said anxiously, “Little brat, why did you come back? Why did you come back? Why did you make such a big fuss? Did your mother not teach you how to write the word ‘death’ when you were young? Why did I give birth to such a stupid thing!”
Yang Kai couldn’t help cursing, but he didn’t have any temper at all. If the sky wanted to rain and his mother wanted to curse, what kind of temper could he have? Not to mention that Yang Kai was Third-Order Emperor Realm master, even if he really became a Great Emperor, he would still be scolded.
Behind him, Fourth Master Yang also wore a cold expression, his face filled with disappointment.
A few years ago, before Yang Kai left the Star Boundary, he had already hinted to Su Yan and the others a few times. Later, when the news of Yang Kai’s betrayal reached High Heaven Palace, High Heaven Palace was sealed, Dong Suzhu fainted on the spot, and Fourth Master Yang fell seriously ill. Although Su Yan and the others had tried to persuade him and even pointed out that Yang Kai was deliberately putting on an act, without the Great Emperor personally admitting it, how could Dong Suzhu and Fourth Master Yang believe them?
For the past few years, the husband and wife had prayed day and night, not asking Yang Kai to clear his name, only asking him to be safe and sound for the rest of his life. Dong Suzhu, who had always lived like a young girl, now had more than a dozen strands of white hair, a clear sign of her parent's heart.
Who would have thought that Yang Kai would actually come back and even shout?
Dong Suzhu almost vomited blood from anger!
“Go before the news gets out,” Dong Suzhu said as she pulled Yang Kai towards the Space Array.
As she pulled, she stared at Yang Kai’s face for a moment, as if she wanted to take a second look at him, as if she wanted to imprint his face into her soul forever.
“Mother…” Seeing her like this, Yang Kai’s eyes also became a bit sore as he quickly comforted, “It’s alright.”
“What do you mean alright! It’s a big deal!” Dong Suzhu stomped her foot, but with her current cultivation, if Yang Kai didn’t want to, how could she pull him back? After a few attempts, she was unable to do anything, causing her to become somewhat anxious, “Are you leaving or not, silly boy?”
“I’m really fine!” Yang Kai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Dong Suzhu’s face immediately became cold as she angrily said, “You’re not leaving, right? If you don’t leave…” Turning her head to look around, her slender jade finger suddenly pointed towards Fourth Master Yang, “If you don’t leave, your father will die in front of you!”
Fourth Master Yang was stunned for a moment before nodding his head solemnly, as if he would die if he didn’t leave.
