When Yang Xiao first appeared and took the endless hourglass from the Wind Monarch, the connection between it and Yang Kai was severed, but when Yang Xue used her Secret Art, the connection was reattached.
He couldn’t see or touch it, but his perception was extremely clear, as if his life was tied to this endless hourglass.
Yang Xue didn’t flip the hourglass like the Wind Monarch did, only pointing her finger towards it. In an instant, ten thousand and eight grains of the divine sand flew out from the hourglass, breaking through the shackles of the hourglass and transforming into a small stream of sand that swirled above Yang Kai.
Yang Kai’s eyes went wide. Such a situation meant that Yang Xue was able to activate the power of this Great Emperor’s Artifact, but he hadn’t even seen Yang Xue refine this hourglass. How had she done it?
What’s more, the hourglass had always been in the hands of the Wind Monarch. The Wind Monarch had refined it here for a hundred years in order to activate its power, but there was still a limit to its power. However, from Yang Xue’s stance, it seemed she was several times stronger than the Wind Monarch.
After the tiny sand stream spun three times, it directly poured into Yang Kai’s head, pouring into his body like an invisible object.
Yang Kai’s body trembled, but soon after, joy filled his heart, because when the ten thousand and eight grains of the divine sand of time rushed into his head, he could clearly feel his longevity rapidly returning.
Lifting his hand, Yang Kai’s withered skin began to recover its luster at a speed visible to the naked eye, and his flesh and blood began to fill up. This was a change visible to the naked eye, as if his body had suddenly gained some strength and his weakened vitality was being restored…
Yang Kai couldn’t help chuckling.
He had expended a great deal of effort and nearly died together with the Wind Monarch. At that time, he really didn’t think too much about it, only thinking that he absolutely could not allow the Wind Monarch to bring out the Endless Hourglass, even if it meant dying here.
But afterwards, he was really a little scared.
It wasn’t that he was afraid of death.
But after he died, what would happen to the Mysterious Boundary Bead? What would happen to the Demon Territory? What would happen to the billions of living beings in the Star Boundary? What about his family and friends…
That was why he was afraid, but now that he had recovered his lost lifespan from the Divine Sand of Time, he no longer had to worry about dying at the end of his lifespan.
With his lifespan restored, Yang Kai’s injuries seemed to be much better. He no longer seemed like a lamp that had run out of oil, but instead seemed to be more energetic.
Yang Xue’s expression was extremely serious, and a thin layer of sweat appeared on her forehead. It was obvious that this action was quite taxing on her, and after the time it took for an incense stick to burn, her body trembled slightly and her face became extremely pale. Only then did she suddenly change her technique, causing Yang Kai to feel his entire body itch as tiny grains of sand flew out from his pores. If these weren’t Divine Sand of Time, what were they?
Receiving Yang Xue’s guidance, the ten thousand and eight grains of the divine sand of time is back on the hourglass. Yang Xue took a few deep breaths and waved her hand in front of Yang Kai’s face, causing a mirror to appear, reflecting Yang Kai’s current appearance as she grinned, “Big Brother, look at your current appearance, are you satisfied?”
Yang Kai looked around carefully.
There were some changes to his face, but they were negligible. At most, he had aged five to six years older, but his hair was a bit gray, giving him an ancient aura.
Yang Xue sighed, “For now, this is all I can do. In the future, after Xiao’er and I completely refine the Endless Hourglass, we will be able to recover all of your lost lifespan.”
“Good, very good,” Yang Kai was already extremely satisfied. Originally, he was on the verge of dying of old age, but now that he had recovered to his prime, how could he not be satisfied? Yang Xue’s methods surprised him greatly, but he also knew in his heart that this was probably not Yang Xue’s method, but the Endless Hourglass work, a treasure left behind by a Great Emperor. The Wind Monarch had only been able to display a fraction of this treasure’s power before, so after saying this, he asked, “How many life essence did I lose?”
Yang Xue’s eyes turned red as she whispered, “A few hundred years…” With a face full of self-reproach, if she had worked harder, she might have been able to recover all of her big brother’s lifespan, but her cultivation wasn’t high enough to refine it.
Yang Kai laughed and patted her head, “It's just a few hundred years, how can an older brother be younger than his younger sister?” Saying so, he stood up.
“Big Brother is not in a hurry to move, you should first check if there are any hidden dangers,” Yang Xue held him down and turned her head to look at Wind Monarch who was curled up on the ground like a dead dog, her eyes narrowing as killing intent flashed in them, “Leave this person to me and Xiao’er.”
This was the first time Yang Kai had seen such a murderous look on the little girl’s face. In the past, she was only a few years old, so even though she had been angered, she had only pretended to be fierce and cute. Now that she had suddenly grown up and revealed her murderous intent, Yang Kai really couldn’t get used to it.
However, she was still his little sister, so no matter how he looked at her, he was happy. Hearing this, he smiled and said, “Good, but don’t kill him, keeping him alive is still useful.”
Yang Xue turned back to look at him and smiled, “Don’t worry, if Xue’er wants him to live, he won’t die even if he wants to.” Saying so, she looked up at Yang Xiao.
Yang Xiao grinned, “Whatever Little Aunt says, I’ll do it.” Clenching his fists, Yang Xiao walked towards Wind Monarch.
Wind Monarch's body and mind were ice cold, and his hands and feet were cold. Although his condition wasn’t good, at least his hearing was still present. The conversation between Yang Kai, Yang Xue and Yang Xiao just now had entered his ears, so how could he not know that this young man and young woman who had suddenly appeared was Yang Kai’s subordinate?
This is really a leak in the house in the night rain, his body is like an arrow at the end of its flight, the endless hourglass was taken, the Passing of Time Temple guard is gone, the enemy actually have another two fierce characters, how can there be a chance of victory?
Just now, Yang Xiao’s violent beating had left a shadow in his heart, so when he noticed Yang Xiao walking over with a malicious look on his face, the Wind Monarch quickly said, “A scholar can be killed but not humiliated. Quickly give this kingn a quick death, this king will wait for you on the road to the underworld.”
Yang Xiao sneered, “You piece of trash, didn’t you hear what my Little Aunt said? If she wanted you to live, you wouldn’t even be able to die.”
Bending down, he raised his hand and lifted up the Wind Monarch like a dead dog. On the other side, Yang Xue didn’t even turn her head as she pointed her finger, shooting a beam of profound light towards the Wind Monarch.
The Wind Monarch’s expression changed instinctively, thinking that the other party was trying to kill him, but soon his expression became calm. Falling into the hands of the enemy was better than being tortured.
But when the Profound Light entered his body, the Wind Monarch’s expression changed.
Because the light contained profound energy, not only did it not cause any harm, it was actually very beneficial to him. Wind Moanrch could clearly feel that his injuries were rapidly healing, and the wounds he had suffered from Yang Xiao’s beating were healing at a speed visible to the naked eye, gradually giving birth to some strength in his body…
However, it was not enough to break free from Yang Xiao’s restraint. After struggling for a while, Yang Xiao grinned at him, “A good show is about to begin, please enjoy it!” Saying so, he raised his hand and smashed the Wind Monarch to the ground.
Yang Xiao is a Dragon Race and was born with extraordinary strength. After cultivating in the Passing of Time Temple for five hundred years and receiving the inheritance of the Passing of Time Great Emperor, his strength had already reached the level of a master. With a loud bang, Wind Monarch fell to the ground, spitting out a mouthful of blood as his body bent forward.
Yang Xiao rushed forward, his fists transforming into a blur as he smashed towards Wind Monarch.
He didn’t use too much of his strength and only used a bit of his physical strength. Every punch he threw caused the Wind Monarch to suffer a great deal of pain, but it didn’t take his life. After a short while, the Wind Monarch was beaten like a dead dog, only breathing.
Fortunately, he was a Pseudo Emperor and had a strong vitality, otherwise he would have been beaten to death by Yang Xiao.
But then again, Yang Xiao wanted to hold him at the edge of life and death. If he really died, he wouldn’t be able to see his father and little aunt.
When Yang Xiao retracted his hand, Yang Xue flicked her finger and sent another beam of Profound Light into the Wind Monarch’s body.
Just like the scene just now, the injuries on Wind Monarch’s body had healed and his strength had been restored, causing him to feel somewhat shocked.
“Again!” Yang Xiao shouted and pounced forward…
Another round of punches…
Yang Kai was also amazed by this scene. In the first two times, Yang Xue had only used her Profound Light, but the Wind Monarch had already undergone such an obvious change. Even with Yang Kai’s eyesight, he was unable to see through this mystery and couldn’t help frowning, “Is it a healing technique?”
Yang Xue stared at her big brother without blinking, as if she couldn’t get enough of him. Hearing this, she smiled, “It’s not healing technique, but it has a healing effect.”
“Time Backtrack,” Yang Xue saw Yang Kai’s interest and immediately explained enthusiastically, “Back then, Uncle Qiong Qi wanted to bring Xiao’er into the Four Seasons Land, saying that Xiao’er was born with extraordinary talent and was a good candidate for cultivating the Time Laws, so he came here to accept the inheritance of the Great Emperor. At that time, I was still young and just wanted to play around, so I insisted on following Xiao’er. Uncle Qiong Qi couldn’t refuse, so he could only agree. Sister Liu Yan also came to protect me, so we came here together.”
After a while, Yang Xue continued, “Xiao’er’s talent was indeed extraordinary, and he was the best candidate to cultivate the Great Emperor’s inheritance, but he couldn’t control his temper. Coincidentally, with me around, we often played together, and after some time, I missed my parents and you and wanted to go back. However, it was easy to enter the Four Seasons Land, but it was difficult to leave, so I was trapped here. Sister Liu Yan taught me how to cultivate, and after a period of peace and quiet, my cultivation gradually improved, so I began to discuss my cultivation with Xiao’er. After that, I discovered that the things he cultivated were simple and clear to me, and when Uncle Qiong Qi learned about it, he was shocked. After a few tests, he found out that I was also able to cultivate the Great Emperor’s inheritance, so from then on, Xiao’er and I studied the Time Laws together until today.”
“However, Xiao’er and I both study different directions. Xiao’er cultivates the future, while I cultivate the past.” As she spoke, Yang Xue raised her hand and pointed towards the Wind Monarch. The Wind Monarch had just been ravaged by Yang Xiao, and after receiving this, he had recovered quite a bit. Yang Xue grinned and said, “That’s right, to a certain extent, I can allow time to return to the past. His current state is the same as when he fought with big brother.”
