At this moment, the young girl was staring at the man in the mirror, staring at Yang Kai. Looking at his aged face and snow white hair, her eyes suddenly turned red and tears flowed down her cheeks.
Although the young man beside him also had long white hair, his situation was different from Yang Kai’s. His hair was naturally like this, but Yang Kai had consumed too much of his lifespan and was on the verge of death. Although the young woman had never entered the world, her cultivation was extraordinary, so how could she not see this?
Heartache, anger, and tears!
After feeling heartache, the young girl’s eyes turned to the Wind Monarch who was leaning against the wall, her eyes filled with murderous intent!
The young man next to her also stared at the mirror, his forehead dripping with cold sweat, as if he had seen a ghost, constantly muttering, “It’s over, it’s over, it’s over, it’s over, it’s over, it’s over…” Saying so, he actually turned around in place, looking like he was at his wit’s end. Suddenly, his eyes lit up as he looked at the young girl beside him and said, “I’ll leave this matter to you, that… I’ll be leaving first.”
Saying so, his figure flickered, shattering the void and leaving this place.
The young girl raised her hand and accurately grabbed the young man’s ear, pulling him back from the void.
Feeling the pain, the young man crouched down next to the young girl and bitterly said, “This again? Let’s have a good talk. If the elder has any instructions, please feel free to ask. This child doesn’t even bat an eyelid when going up a mountain of blades or down a sea of flames, but I hope the elder can show mercy and not pull my ear. I’m a member of the Dragon Race after all, if word of this spreads, I won’t be able to be a Dragon anymore.”
The two of them looked to be about the same age, but the young man called himself child, the young woman didn’t seem surprised at all, as if it was only natural for her to do so. Hearing this, she glanced at him, pointed her finger towards Wind Monarch, and said lightly, “I want him to suffer a fate worse than death!”
The young man blinked, “Just this?”
“Can you do it or not?” The young girl continued to ask.
The young man patted his chest and said, “Leave it to me.” Saying so, he smiled and looked towards the young girl. The young girl stared at him for a while before slowly letting go.
Recovering his freedom, the young man rubbed his ears and stared at the Wind Monarch in the mirror, gritting his teeth as if he was holding a grudge against him.
After a short while, he smiled lightly and said, “Speaking of good fortune, the Dao is good fortune, the good fortune is reversed, the Heavens are impermanent, the Earth is impermanent, the Dao is impermanent.”
As he spoke, he stepped into the mirror and disappeared into it. In the next moment, he appeared in front of Wind Monarch.
The young man’s face was as white as jade and his smile was gentle and refined. Wind Monarch was shocked because from his perspective, the appearance of this young man in front of him was too strange. It was as if he had come from the void without any warning.
Looking over, Wind Monarch's eyes narrowed. With his ability, he was actually unable to see the depths of this young man’s cultivation. Although this was partly due to his current poor condition, it also proved how extraordinary this young man was.
The young man’s voice was the same as the one that had sounded in the hall just now. How could the Wind Monarch not know that the one who had just spoken was him? Immediately, his expression became solemn, and just as he was about to ask for the other party’s identity, the young man didn’t give him a chance to speak. Still wearing a smile on his face, he stretched out his hand and gently said, “Don’t you think it’s too bad to take something from someone else’s house? It’s time to return it to its rightful owner!”
His expression was relaxed, as if he wasn’t facing a Pseudo Emperor but a weak scholar. His posture was relaxed, as if he was just bending over to pick up a flower.
The white jade hand easily passed through the barrier of light surrounding the Wind Monarch, no matter how hard Wind Chaser tried before, it was unable to damage it in the slightest. But now, he grabbed the endless hourglass in the Wind Moanrch’s hand.
Wind Monarch was greatly shocked. The Endless Hourglass was a treasure left behind by the Great Emperor, his greatest reliance in this place, and it was also the core of the Passing of Time Temple. He used the power of his Blood Essence to activate the power of the Temple to protect himself. Even if the Great Emperor himself came, unless he destroyed the Passing of Time Temple, no one could do anything to him.
He had said this to Yang Kai before, and it was indeed true.
But not long after, a young man appeared out of thin air in front of him. The young man bent down, stretched out his hand, passed through the light curtain, and grabbed the endless hourglass.
How could the Wind Monarch not be shocked? Such a situation was even more shocking than the arrival of the Great Emperor himself. With the Great Emperor here, even if he had eyes that could see through the sky, he would at least be able to see some clues from his actions, but when the young man stretched out his hand, it was as if there was no smoke or fire… He was completely unable to see how the young man had done this.
In a daze, his left hand suddenly relaxed and the endless hourglass in his hand disappeared.
When he looked up again, the young man had already straightened his back and the endless hourglass had appeared in his hand. At this moment, he was staring at it with great interest.
In an instant, Wind Monarch's hair stood on end and he broke out in a cold sweat, feeling his blood turn cold.
“This is an endless hourglass…” The young man played with it for a while before curling his lips and casually tossing the hourglass behind him as if it was trash.
Then, the young man’s expression changed and his gentle demeanor suddenly became fierce. He kicked the Wind Monarch’s chest and cursed, “It’s you, you bastard, who disturbed my peaceful cultivation! Don’t you know that this place has a master? When you came in, did you obtain this Young Master’s permission? Without this Young Master’s permission, how dare you come in! Bastard, bastard, I’ll trample you to death!”
As the young man cursed, he kicked and stomped mercilessly.
Wind Monarch was stunned. He was already an arrow at the end of its flight, forcefully activating the power of the Passing of Time Temple to protect himself, but the young man simply ignored the existence of the light curtain and stomped on him, causing him to collapse to the ground.
The great Pseudo Emperor, at this moment, was like a gangster who had just lost a street fight. He held his head and curled up on the ground, protecting his vital points, allowing the young man’s foot to constantly hit his body. After a while, he spat out a mouthful of blood and his entire body was covered in footprints. The current state of the Wind Monarch was no longer sufficient to describe his current state. The grief and indignation in his heart couldn’t be any greater and the anger in his heart transformed into a question: Who is this young man?
One had to know that he had been here for a hundred years, recovering from his injuries and refining the Endless Hourglass, but he hadn’t even noticed that there was an outsider here besides himself. Moreover, the young man had just said something about returning it to its original owner, making it seem as if the Endless Hourglass was his, but the Endless Hourglass was clearly a treasure left behind by the Passing of Time Great Emperor, so how could it be his?
Yang Kai was also a bit stunned. The young man had suddenly appeared, took away the Endless Hourglass, and violently kicked the Wind Monarch. All of this happened in the blink of an eye, and before he could react, a young girl had appeared in front of him.
As soon as the young girl appeared, she casually grabbed the endless hourglass that the young man had thrown out. From the looks of it, the young man knew that the young girl had appeared here, so he had tossed the hourglass over. Although the two of them didn’t speak to each other, this simple matter was enough for them to understand each other.
However, when their eyes met, Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling somewhat dazed.
The young girl’s eyes were filled with tears as she pursed her red lips and stared at him, seemingly trying to hold back her tears. What confused Yang Kai was not her current expression, but her face.
There was something familiar about her, as if he had seen her before, but after thinking about it carefully, he couldn’t recall where he had seen her before. However, he was certain that this young girl didn’t have any hostility towards him. On the contrary, it gave Yang Kai a natural sense of intimacy, as if the person standing in front of him was not a young girl he had never met before, but rather his family.
Wind Chaser cried out as he charged towards the young girl. He didn’t know what was happening, so when he saw the young girl suddenly appear, he thought she was trying to harm Yang Kai, and it was naturally loyal to him.
“Retreat!” Yang Kai clutched his chest and shouted.
Wind Chaserr understood the human language and immediately stopped, glancing at Yang Kai and then back at the young girl before obediently standing next to Yang Kai, not too far away from him, just in case.
“You are…” Yang Kai carefully looked at the young girl again, becoming more certain that he had seen her somewhere before, but he just couldn’t remember where he had seen her. However, this kind of matter should be easily solved by asking.
The young girl opened her mouth, but before she could say anything, she burst into tears. Her tears flowed down her face like a broken pearl, her shoulders trembling as she covered her mouth with her small hands, trying her best not to cry.
How could she bear it? The more she choked, the harder she cried, her tears forming a stream that dripped down her delicate chin.
Yang Kai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as he said, “If you want to cry, just cry. Just vent it out.”
Hearing this, the young girl couldn’t help but cry, “Big Brother…”
Yang Kai blinked and subconsciously felt that he had heard wrongly, or perhaps the young girl had called him wrongly. In this world, there was a person who should call him Big Brother, especially in this Passing of Time Temple, but that little child was only a few years old when she first entered. It had only been a short time, so no matter what, it was impossible for her to grow up to be so graceful and elegant.
However, when this thought flashed across his mind, Yang Kai’s expression couldn’t help becoming excited as he carefully examined the young girl’s face. Vaguely, he seemed to see traces of his parents. Her petite nose was almost identical to his mother’s, and her pair of black eyebrows also resembled his mother’s… It could even be said that the young girl’s face was somewhat similar to his own.
Yang Kai’s pupils shrank as he swallowed his saliva and asked in disbelief, “Xue’er?”
The young girl couldn’t help nodding, her tears splashing as she said in a trembling voice, “That’s right, it’s Xue’er, it’s Xue’er! Uwu… Big Brother!” Being recognized by Yang Kai, the young girl was so excited that she couldn’t stop crying. She walked up to Yang Kai and half-knelt in front of him, wanting to hug him, but seeing that Yang Kai’s condition wasn’t good, she forced herself to hold back, holding his cheeks with both hands as she whispered, “Big Brother, I miss you so much, I miss Father and Mother.”
Feeling the warmth of this young girl’s hands, Yang Kai fell into a trance, feeling like he was in a dream.
When Yang Xue first entered the Four Seasons Land, how old was she? It had only been a few years, so even if she was ten years old, she was still a child.
But how could the girl in front of him only be ten years old?
