It was true that Yang Xiao had been born from Yang Kai’s incubation and had been taken in as his foster son, even giving himself a name that allowed him to soar into the sky, but in the end, he was still the son of Fu Zhun and Zhu Yan, with the blood of the Dragon Race flowing through his veins.
When Yang Xiao was still in the Dragon’s egg, due to his congenital deficiency, he was unable to hatched. Originally, according to the rules of the Dragon Clan, it was supposed to be placed in the Dragon Tomb, but because of her love for Yang Xiao, Fu Zhun had secretly hidden him on an isolated island and was accidentally hatched by Yang Kai.
Towards Yang Xiao, Fu Zhun doted on him greatly and wanted nothing more than to pour all of her blood, sweat, and tears into Yang Xiao. If Yang Xiao hadn’t pretended to have an impure bloodline, it would have been impossible for him to leave Dragon Island with Yang Kai.
After taking her son away, he had failed to take good care of him. Now that there was no news of him after entering the Four Seasons Land, Fu Zhun was naturally annoyed. When she had received this news, she had even prepared to slaughter her way to the Demon Territory to settle accounts with Yang Kai.
Fortunately, Beast Martial Great Emperor Mo Huang had stopped her, otherwise she really would have done something like this.
Since she couldn’t enter the Demon Territory, Yang Kai had to give her an explanation.
The main reason Zhu Qing had appeared in High Heaven Palace was because Fu Zhun had left her behind to send a message to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai also felt a headache coming on. How could he possibly go to Dragon Island to give her an explanation? If he really went to Dragon Island at this time, he would definitely be beaten up by Fu Zhun.
The second Elder had never been reasonable.
But then again, whether it was for that little brat Yang Xiao or for his little sister Yang Xue, Yang Kai had to go to the Four Seasons Land to investigate. However, Yang Kai really couldn’t place too much hope on this matter. Fu Zhun hadn’t been able to find any clues for half a year, so it would be useless even if he went.
In order to comfort his parents, Yang Kai had to go.
Coupled with the fact that he still had to make a trip to Star Soul Palace, his trip to the Southern Domain was imperative.
But before that, he still had another place to investigate.
All of this was not just an excuse to Yao Si, it was a fact.
Ten days after returning to High Heaven Palace, Yang Kai stepped back onto the Space Array under the watchful eyes of Su Yan and the others. With a thought, the Space Array lit up and a dazzling white light enveloped him.
When the light dissipated, Yang Kai had already disappeared.
When he reappeared, he was inside a tree house.
The Eastern Region, the Wild Ancient Land! This was where the Stone Puppet Race lived, and the treehouse was Xiao Xiao treehouse. Yang Kai had left a Space Array here in the past, so it was only natural that he would appear here now.
The surroundings were quiet, and when he walked out of the tree house, he didn’t see a single living creature.
The Stone Puppet Clan and the Wood Spirit Race who lived with them were both on the Western Domain Battlefield, and in order to resist the Demon Race, this place had not been lively for several years. On the other hand, the spirit fruits and spirit grasses planted by the Wood Spirit Race were flourishing.
Yang Kai picked up a red fruit and ate it while flying away.
Everywhere he passed, only a few people were seen. The Wild Ancient Land was located in a remote corner, but after the war between the two worlds broke out, most of the Monster Race had followed Luan Feng and the others to the battlefield, leaving behind only the old, the weak, and the disabled.
Compared to when he first came to the Wild Ancient Land, this place was much more desolate.
Yang Kai wanted to go to the Blood Gate, Heavenly Punishment Palace, Holy Spirit Palace.
Yang Xiao and Yang Xue had entered the Four Seasons Land, but there was no news of them. Zhang Ruoxi and Xiao Xiao had entered the Blood Gate, but there was also no news of them. In comparison, Zhang Ruoxi and Xiao Xiao had been in the Blood Gate for more than a decade.
It was said that there were many Holy Spirit Sources sealed inside the Holy Spirit Palace. If they could open it sooner, many Monster Beasts in the Wild Ancient Land would benefit. The reason why Xi Lei and the others were willing to follow Yang Kai at that time was because of the opportunities inside the Holy Spirit Palace.
Yang Kai’s strength had greatly increased, and his speed had also become much faster. In less than an hour, he had arrived at the Blood Gate.
On a barren mountain peak, there was nothing. If he hadn’t known that the Blood Gate was here, Yang Kai wouldn’t have paid much attention.
However, Zhang Ruoxi and Xiao Xiao had indeed entered the Holy Spirit Palace from that place, and a great battle had broken out in the surrounding mountain valleys. The Holy Spirit Stone Flame had been killed by Zhang Ruoxi with a single blow and his Holy Spirit Source had been extracted, causing his body to suffer.
Yang Kai wasn’t too disappointed to not see the Blood Gate. After all, if the Blood Gate really reopened, it would be impossible for all the forces in the Star Boundary to not have any information about it. He had come here just to take a look and confirm.
Two strange sounds rang out and Yang Kai turned his head.
On the other side, under the trunk of a large tree, there was a man, his arms crossed, one leg hooked to the trunk, seemingly asleep.
Yang Kai had already noticed that this was a Monster General, but he didn’t pay any attention to him. However, this Monster General perception wasn’t weak, so he was able to sense it while he was sleeping. When he opened his eyes, he saw Yang Kai’s eyes.
When their eyes met, the Monster General was stunned for a moment before letting out a loud cry and accidentally falling from the tree trunk to the ground. He hurriedly stood up, jumped up, and ran over, nodding and bowing as he said, “This little one greets Sir Yang, Sir Yang has a long life and is forever in good health, coo…”
Yang Kai looked at him and saw that this Monster Chief Commander had a square head, a pair of sharp eyebrows, a small nose, and a sharp beak. He smiled and asked, “Do you know me?”
The Monster General quickly nodded, “Who in our Ancient Land doesn’t know who you are? Back then, this little one listened to Sir Ying Fei’s orders and only saw you slaughtering everyone in your path. It was quite an awe-inspiring sight…”
“Which clan are you from?” Yang Kai asked curiously.
The Monster General replied, “This little one is an owl who has gained sentience to become a Monster Race than can turn in to human shape, but back then, I had some problems with my cultivation. This Transformatio is somewhat imperfect, I’m sorry to have incurred your ridicule.”
No wonder it looked a little strange. Ordinary Monster General didn’t have any flaws in their human form, but this one in front of him had the distinctive features of a Monster Race. An owl gained sentience and transform into human shape, so it really did look similar.
“What are you doing here?” Yang Kai asked.
The Monster General replied respectfully, “Under the orders of my Great King, we are to guard the Blood Gate. Ah, right, Great King said this is an order from the Holy Venerable.”
“Are you the only one here?”
“Just me, coo…”
Yang Kai glanced at his lower body, “How did you get injured?”
The Monster General replied proudly, “When I fought with the Demon Race in the Western Region, this little one killed and had one of his legs cut off. The blood flowed all over the ground and it was quite painful, but this little one was lucky and managed to survive. Heh, exchanging one leg for his life is not a loss, this little one still wants to kill, this little one still has one leg and can exchange it for another Demon Race’s life, but the Great King asked me to return and guard the Blood Gate, so this little one returned.”
Yang Kai opened his mouth, not expecting this broken leg to have so many things to do with it. Raising his hand, he patted his shoulder and said, “Good job.”
The Monster General immediately showed a look of being overwhelmed by this unexpected favor and didn’t know what to say. His eyes were red and filled with tears…
Yang Kai said solemnly, “Fighting and killing on the battlefield is indeed the work of us men, but the matter of the Blood Gate is also very important. Guard this place well, and if there are any abnormalities, send a message to your Great King and the Holy Venerable.”
“Yes, Sir, please rest assured, this little one will stand guard here and won’t go anywhere,” The Monster General straightened his back and patted his chest confidently.
“Alright, I’m just here to take a look,” Yang Kai nodded at him before turning around and walking back the way he came. After two steps, his figure gradually blurred and disappeared, leaving the Monster General dumbfounded.
A moment later, he suddenly remembered and cupped his fists, “This little one greets the Sir…”
Before he could finish speaking, he suddenly felt something strange in his hand. Opening his palm, he found a Space Ring.
He didn’t know when he had obtained a Space Ring, so he cautiously released his Divine Sense to examine it and immediately let out a cry of surprise. Inside the Space Ring were several thousands of Monster Beast Cores, all of which seemed to be of extraordinary quality. Although they didn’t contain the cores of 12th-Order Monster Beasts, they were exactly what he needed.
How could he not know that this was Yang Kai’s reward? With a plop, he knelt down and kowtowed in the direction Yang Kai had left, repeatedly thanking him.
After another two hours, Yang Kai appeared in the Star Soul Palace of the Southern Domain.
Although he didn’t dare face the Star Soul Palace again, he still wanted to come. The Bright Moon Great Emperor’s body had already been welcomed back to the Star Soul Palace by Lei Hong. He had come here to see the Great Emperor off for the last time and also to apologize to Lan Xun.
Before he was teleported here, Yang Kai had already mentally prepared himself. Even if Lan Xun scolded him and hit him, he would not resist at all. After all, Ming Yue had indeed died at his hands.
He even imagined that Star Soul Palace would not welcome him.
But when Yang Kai really stepped into the Star Soul Palace, he had never imagined that the central pillar of the Southern Domain, a Great Emperor Sect, would undergo such a great upheaval.
The Space Array was completely empty, with not a single Star Soul Palace disciple guarding it. Not only that, outside the main hall, five colored rays of light were flowing, forming a brilliant river. Between the heavens and earth, the Spiritual Energy was turbulent, and an extremely dangerous aura was spreading from a certain part of the Star Soul Palace, as if it could shatter this world at any moment.
Yang Kai was shocked and quickly rushed out of the hall. Looking up, his eyes narrowed.
The Star Soul Palace had not been invaded by foreign enemies. Even though Ming Yue had died, how could a Great Emperor Sect be so easily shaken? The only reason such an accident had occurred was because of the Star Soul Palace internal problem.
What he saw was a huge five colored pagoda floating in the air, and the flowing five colored light was coming from it.
The Five Colors Treasure Pagoda was the Star Soul Palace’s defining treasure, and Yang Kai had once entered it to gain experience. Thousand Illusion Dream Land in High Heaven palace was obtained from this Five Colors Treasure Pagoda.
The Five Colors Treasure Pagoda was divided into five floors, each of which contained an infinite number of worlds and was extremely mysterious. This artifact was also an ancient artifact and was extremely valuable. The Star Soul Palace’s vast heritage was greatly related to the Five Colors Treasure Pagoda.
At this moment, the floating pagoda was trembling non-stop, and as Yang Kai watched, the figures around the pagoda wore solemn expressions as they formed hand seals, desperately trying to maintain the stability of the pagoda.
Lei Hong, Xue Zhengmao, Xiao Yuyang, the three Great Elders all appeared. There were also a dozen or so other Emperor Realm assisting them, as well as countless Principle Source Stage masters surrounding the pagoda, but all of them were pale and sweating profusely.
