The Secret Technique was different, but the Time Laws it released were exactly the same.
A short while later, Yang Xiao’s expression became solemn as he stomped his foot on the ground, causing the Divine Temple to rumble like thunder.
Yang Xue gently raised her hand and shouted, “Rise!”
Rumble… The Passing of Time Temple slowly rose up from the ground like a giant tree.
The Passing of Time Temple was not only a temple, it was also the palace of the Passing of Time Great Emperor. The so-called palace was a place that could be brought to wherever one went, like a mortal’s palanquin or carriage. This was something that ordinary people couldn’t imagine, but to the Great Emperor, it is a leisure.
As for the control center of the Passing of Time Temple, it was the Endless Hourglass. Yang Xiao and Yang Xue had spent ten years refining this Endless Hourglass, and although they had cultivated the Great Emperor’s True Inheritance and were able to activate the power of this hourglass, if they wanted to completely control the Passing of Time Temple, they would have to undergo a thorough tempering.
Ten years of hard work and now, the Great Emperor’s palace had become the home of the wo children.
The Divine Temple rose, broke through the void, and rushed out of the Four Seasons Garden.
Inside the nameless mountain valley, the Embodiment sat cross-legged on the ground while the two statues in front of him that's not really a statues, but rather two Demon Race Half-Saints sealed by the Great Emperor’s Divine Ability.
After a fierce battle, Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo only had enough time to show their faces, but before they could display their full strength, they were sealed in this place. The former was like a fierce beast, while the latter was like a lion trying to capture a rabbit, motionless, no different from a statue.
The Embodiment was somewhat worried. Although it had found out that the two Demon Race Half-Saints weren’t in mortal danger, it had repeatedly tried to break the seals on them, but it naturally couldn’t help them regain their freedom.
Although the Embodiment was different from Yang Kai, after so many years of living and dying together, it had experienced many things and could be considered quite knowledgeable. Now that it had the strength of a Half-Saint, it couldn’t do anything about Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo's current state, so naturally it was a bit worried.
In the blink of an eye, more than a month had passed, but there was still no movement from the main body. It didn’t know what the main body had encountered in the Four Seasons Land.
However, just a month ago, its heart suddenly throbbed, and for some reason, it felt as if it was about to die. It was Yang Kai’s Embodiment, formed from a wisp of Yang Kai’s Soul that had entered the Stone Puppet’s body. Whether it cultivated to the Half-Saint or Demon Saint realm, this would not change. Its life was born because of Yang Kai, and its destruction will be because of Yang Kai.
In other words, if Yang Kai were to meet with a mishap, it would certainly be a disaster. On the other hand, if something were to happen to it, Yang Kai would not be implicated.
At that time, it and Zhou Quan had been cleaning up the battlefield and had just settled down the sealed Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo when the feeling of imminent death suddenly hit him. He immediately understood that the main body had encountered some kind of trouble.
It couldn’t figure out why its main body, at its peak, who chase after the heavily injured Wind Monarch, with a vicious beast like Wind Chaser by his side, is in desperate situations. It couldn’t figure it out, but it was certain that something had happened in the Four Seasons Land.
However, he couldn’t interfere with the affairs of his main body, so he immediately called Zhou Quan over and arranged for him to take Bai Zhuo and Bai Ya to the Seven Mist Sea after his death and hand the two Half Saints over to Li Wuyi before asking him to make a trip to High Heaven Palace and explain everything to them.
After arranging his funeral arrangements, the Embodiment closed its eyes and waited for death.
He didn’t die and somehow managed to survive until now.
Zhou Quan was meditating on the side to heal his injuries. He had also suffered some injuries before, and after a month, he had almost fully recovered. The vast mountain valley was silent.
At this moment, the Embodiment suddenly raised its head, a solemn look appearing on his stone face, its two eyes fixed on a certain spot in the sky.
A moment later, it suddenly shouted, “Retreat!”
As soon as he finished speaking, his Demonic Qi swept out and wrapped around Bai Ya, Bai Zhuo, Zhou Quan, and the other six or seven captives before retreating thirty zhang.
Just as the Embodiment retreated, a strange ripple spread out from the void above the nameless mountain valley, turning the calm void into a lake where someone threw a stone.
Zhou Quan woke up from his meditation and looked up, crying out in alarm.
As the ripples spread out, a huge outline slowly emerged from them. How familiar was this scene?
More than a month ago, when the Wind Monarch had set up the Great Array and held the skeleton, such a thing had happened once. Naturally, they knew that the outline of the Passing of Time Temple had appeared from the void.
At that time, the Wind Monarch hadn’t used his full strength, so the Passing of Time Temple showed its head and shrank back. Was it here again? Could it be that the Wind Monarch was still alive? Zhou Quan immediately circulated his Emperor Qi and assumed a fighting stance.
The Embodiment, however, was surprised for a moment before raising its hand and patting his shoulder, smiling, “Don’t panic, don’t panic.” The World Barrier opened, allowing it to detect the aura of its master.
Since the main body was here, the reappearance of the Passing of Time Temple should be his method, so it probably had nothing to do with the Wind Monarch.
The void shattered as a massive palace slowly emerged from the void, covering the sky and earth. At the front of the palace, at the main entrance, several figures appeared. Who else could it be but the main body?
The Embodiment smiled happily.
In the time it took to boil a cup of tea, the Passing of Time Temple emerged from the Four Seasons Land, the Palace of the Passing of Time Great Emperor appearing once again after countless years.
Old Qiong’s face was filled with sorrow. In the past, wherever this palace went, all the living beings of the Star Boundary would prostrate themselves in worship. Even if they were all Great Emperors, they would still come out to greet it.
However, after the passing of the Passing of Time Great Emperor, the palace had remained dormant in the Four Seasons Land until now.
There was a successor! The old master had a successor! Old Qiong, who was invisible to others, wiped his eyes.
The massive palace covered the entire nameless mountain valley, casting its shadow on the ground like a great ancient beast, causing Zhou Quan to tremble and fall to the ground. The captured Demonic Heavenly Dao Emperor Realm all felt their hearts tremble.
Although they had fallen into a state of madness, their minds were clear, so how could they not know the origins of this palace? However, they did not see the figure of the Wind Monarch, so they knew that from today onwards, the four Great Monarch Envoys under the Dao Master would become three Great Monarch Envoys.
Jumping out of the void, Yang Xue waved her hand and the Divine Temple rapidly shrank, becoming the size of a palm in just a few breaths of time before being absorbed into her sleeve.
Wind Chaser's eyes widened as he stared at Yang Xue’s sleeve, with a look of disbelief on his face. He was probably wondering how such a big palace could be stored in her sleeve.
Yang Kai stepped forward and arrived in front of the Embodiment in a few steps. Looking at Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo, he asked, “How is it?”
Previously, when he had chased Wind Monarch into the Four Seasons Land, he hadn’t had time to investigate the situation of these two Demon Race Half-Saints until now.
“Not dead,” The Embodiment replied.
Yang Kai let out a sigh of relief. It was good that they're not dead. He was really afraid that Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo would meet with some kind of accident, he really couldn’t explain this to Yu Rumeng and Bei Limo.
“Why is your hair white?” The Embodiment frowned at Yang Kai’s head.
When Yang Kai had entered the Four Seasons Land, his hair had been as black as ink, but now that he had come out, his hair had actually turned white. Although his Embodiment didn’t know what had happened, when he thought about his previous heart palpitations, he could guess that Yang Kai had fought a fierce battle inside.
“A few hundred years older,” Yang Kai smiled. It wasn’t a big deal. He was currently a Third-Order Emperor Realm master and had a long lifespan. In this realm, a few hundred years was considered young.
“They’re…” The Embodiment turned to look at Yang Xiao and Yang Xue again, just like Yang Kai. At first glance, he found them familiar, but he couldn’t recall where he had seen them before.
Even if he could remember, he didn’t dare to admit it. It had only been a few years and the two children had already grown up. It was too bizarre.
It was quite troublesome to explain, so Yang Kai simply sent a Divine Sense over and after pondering for a moment, he couldn’t help staring, “Xiao’er, Xue’er?”
Yang Xiao obediently stepped forward and cupped his fists, “Xiao’er greets Second Uncle.”
The Embodiment was Yang Kai’s clone, so it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that he was Yang Kai’s brother. This Second Uncle was right tittle, this little brat’s mouth was filled with honey, his words causing the Embodiment to laugh heartily.
Yang Xue didn’t know about the existence of the Embodiment, after all, when she left High Heaven Palace, she was still too young and hadn’t seen the Embodiment yet, but now that Yang Xiao had spoken, she knew how to address him.
When she called out ‘Second Brother’, the Embodiment's mouth was about to split open.
Laughing, the Embodiment said, “You came out just in time, I’ll need your help with this.” Saying so, he pulled Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo over and placed them in front of them.
The two Demon Race Half-Saints had been sealed because they had been struck by a Divine Ability from the Great Emperor’s remains, so there was no way to remove it, but knowing that the two childs were the Great Emperor’s successors, it was only natural that the seal could be removed.
Naturally, they will help their family.
The two child each took one and pointed their fingers towards Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo’s forehead. In the next moment, the Time Laws surged and wrapped around the two Demon Race Half-Saints.
Not long after, after half an incense stick’s worth of time, the eyes of the two Half-Saints suddenly flickered, and their Demonic Qi surged as Bai Ya roared, “Hand over your lives!”
Bai Zhuo shouted, “Die!”
They all attacked together.
Yang Xiao and Yang Xue, on the other hand, were already prepared for this. Their figures flickered as they hid behind Yang Kai.
When the two Half-Saints’ Divine Abilities reached Yang Kai, their faces couldn’t help changing as they forcefully withdrew their strength and retreated, letting out muffled groans as they froze in mid-air. Forcefully withdrawing their strength caused a backlash to their bodies, but it wasn’t a big problem. The two Half-Saints had long since reached the stage where they could freely withdraw.
A short while later, Bai Zhuo and Bai Ya walked back, confused. Looking at these unfamiliar faces, especially Qiong Qi and Liu Yan, they turned to look at Yang Kai, puzzled.
Bai Zhuo asked, “What happened? Where’s the Wind Monarch?”
In his perception, he was just about to attack the Wind Monarch a moment ago, but in the next moment, Yang Kai was standing in front of him and there was no trace of the Wind Monarch around him.
In the blink of an eye, Yang Kai’s hair had become much whiter, making him look a few years older.
Yang Kai turned to look at the two children and asked, “They don’t know?”
Yang Xue smiled and said, “The power of time make them stagnated, so they can’t sense anything.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly, understanding why the two Demon Race Half-Saints had such a reaction. They had been sealed for such a long time that they hadn’t been able to see or feel anything, which meant that they had been sucked out of their lives by the power of time. It would be strange if they could react.
