Old Qiong didn’t pause for even a moment as he continued carving. Although he wasn’t proficient in this Dao, with his powerful cultivation, it was a simple task.
Even though it was a simple task, Old Qiong was extremely serious. Every twist and turn of that blade mark, every stroke, was condensed from his lifetime of cultivation.
Thirty breaths later, Old Qiong withdrew his blade and everyone looked up, their expressions all different, but most of them were filled with shock.
The Passing of Time Great Emperor had a great reputation. Even though he had been dead for countless years, his legend was still circulating throughout the world. Such a character was definitely extraordinary, and such an expert was definitely rare.
But in reality, after Old Qion had restored the Great Emperor’s prestige, everyone discovered that the appearance of the Passing of Time Great Emperor was actually quite ordinary.
Such an appearance, if placed in a crowd, no one would care too much.
But what did a Great Emperor’s ability have to do with his appearance? He was the Passing of Time Great Emperor, so his ordinary appearance would also become extraordinary!
Everyone bowed respectfully.
Yang Xiao and Yang Xue even went up and personally offered three incense sticks to their Honored Master, kowtowing a few times.
After paying their respects, Bang’er led everyone into the main hall. Inside the main hall, a strange fragrance wafted through the air. The Clam Race had already prepared a banquet and was just waiting for their honored guests to take their seats.
Each of them was accompanied by a beautiful Clam Race girl who poured wine and served them gently while the other Clam Race beauties danced and sang.
A calamity had come from a misunderstanding, and now seeing the two Supreme Divinities, Bang'er was very happy and kept raising his cup to toast them. Although the Clam Race lived under the sea, there was no shortage of resources here, especially the wine brewed by his family. It was rich and fragrant, giving off a unique taste.
After three rounds of wine and five dishes, Bang’er suddenly spoke up, “Two Supreme Divinities, you should know that in this sea, it is not only my Clam Race that has received the favor of the Supreme Divinity, but also the other Sea Race like my Clam Race.”
The Clam Race regarded the Passing of Time Great Emperor as their Supreme Divinity, and the two masters under the Supreme Divinity were the tribute, so it was not a problem for him to address them respectfully.
Hearing this, Yang Xue’s eyes lit up, “Great King means…”
Bang’er smiled, “This is the important matter I wanted to inform you about just now. I didn’t know about the Supreme Divinity’s identity and that there was a successor in this world, but now that the two Supreme Divinities have come looking for me, I can’t hide anything.” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “My Clam Race’s Supreme Divinity remains have been passed down from generation to generation by our Old Ancestor, and there are also some words that have been passed down from generation to generation. The Old Ancestor once said that it wasn’t only the Clam Race that obtained the Supreme Divinity’s remains, there are other Sea Race members who also obtained it. All of them received the Supreme Divinity’s blessing and were able to reproduce in this vast world.”
Hearing this, Yang Xiao, who had been drinking, stopped drinking and turned to look at Bang’er, “Does Great King know where those Sea Race people are?”
Bang’er smiled, “I don’t know anything else, nor can I be certain, but there is one place that is highly likely.”
Yang Xue and Yang Xiao both asked, “Where?”
“Fifty thousand kilometers west of my Clam Race’s territory, there is a territory belonging to the Shrimp Race. That old Shrimp probably has a piece of Supreme Divinity’s remains.”
“Very likely?” Yang Xiao raised his brow.
Bang’er replied, “Because that old shrimp has lived for many years. If it weren’t for the Supreme Divinity’s remains, he probably wouldn’t have lived so long.” The Clam Race had the remains of the Passing of Time Great Empeor, so they knew the uses of these remains very well. The situation of the Shrimp Race was very similar to their own, so they naturally had this guess.
This was a pleasant surprise, and Yang Xiao immediately stood up, “Then what are we waiting for? Let’s go to the Shrimp Race to retrieve Honored Master’s remains!” Saying so, he turned to Yang Xue and asked, “Little Aunt, what do you think?” Yang Xue called him Junior Brother, while he called Yang Xue Little Aunt. This relationship was a bit messy.
Yang Xue nodded, “Let’s go together.”
Bang’er quickly said, “Supreme Divinities, please wait a moment. The situation over at the Shrimp Race is quite different from my Clam Race. They may not be willing to return the remains of the Supreme Divinity, and may even think you two are swindlers. Please wait for me to gather my forces and assist you!”
Yang Xiao glanced at him and smiled, “Does Great King have a grudge with that old shrimp?”
If there wasn’t some kind of grudge between them, why would he take the initiative to act so proactively, as if he wanted to use someone else knife to kill him? Although Yang Xiao had been cultivating in the Divine Temple for five hundred years, he wasn’t an idiot, so how could he not see this?
However, he was just asking casually, so without waiting for Bang’er to explain anything, he continued, “This matter is a family matter of the Passing of Time disciples, so there’s no need for Great King to worry about it.” Regardless of what intentions Bang’er had or whether he wanted to use someone else knife to kill the Old Shrimp, as long as he knew that the Shrimp Race had the remains of the Passing of Time Great Emperor, Yang Xiao and Yang Xue had to go.
Bang’er was a little embarrassed, but since Yang Xiao had said so, he didn’t insist and immediately said, “In that case, Bang’er wishes the two Supreme Divinities a great victory.”
After finding out the whereabouts of another Great Emperor’s remains, the two Passing of Time Disciples didn’t want to wait any longer and immediately set out. Bang’er gave them directions and respectfully sent them off.
Above the vast sea, everyone sped along.
Suddenly, Yang Kai came to a stop. Yang Xue, Qiong Qi, and the others also came to a halt, leaving only Yang Xiao who had rushed off into the distance before quickly flying back, staring at Yang Kai suspiciously, “What did Father find?”
Yang Kai smiled and shook his head, glancing at him before turning back to Yang Xue, “You’ve all grown up.”
Yang Xiao and Yang Xue couldn’t help but stare at him in confusion.
Yang Kai continued, “When you grow up, you must walk your own path.”
Yang Xue was quick-witted and immediately understood, “Does Big Brother have something to do?”
Yang Kai reached out to rub her head and smiled, “I do have something to do, I need to settle it as soon as possible!”
“Then Big Brother can go alone, no need to worry about me and Xiao'er.”
Yang Kai’s expression became serious, “Not only do I want to leave, but I also want to take your Big Sister Liu Yan and Uncle Qiong Qi with me. I’m afraid there will be a powerful enemy on my way, so I need more people.”
Hearing this, Yang Xue didn’t even have time to say anything before Yang Xiao suddenly became excited, “Then let Big Aunt, Old Qiong, and Father go. Little Aunt and I will handle Honored Master’s matters.”
Yang Xue nodded. The two of them had obtained the Passing of Time Inheritance and had been cultivating in seclusion in the Divine Temple for more than five hundred years before finally coming out of seclusion, giving off the aura of a fierce tiger descending from the mountain. With Yang Kai by their side, they were still somewhat restrained, but now that they heard Yang Kai wanted to take Liu Yan and Qiong Qi away, although they didn’t want to, it was a good idea.
Yang Kai smiled, “Although the two of you have achieved some small success in your cultivation, you must remember that there is always a higher mountain in this world. Don’t think that just because you obtained the Great Emperor’s inheritance, you are invincible. You should know that even your Honored Master wasn’t able to do so back then, let alone you two little kids…”
“Father, I’m more than five hundred years old!” Yang Xiao tried to defend himself.
Yang Kai ignored him and continued, “Although there is a difference in seniority between the two of you, your ages are about the same. When you go out, you must take care of each other and be careful.” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “If you encounter any danger, remember to use the Space Spirit Bead!”
Yang Xiao and Yang Xue nodded, “We’ll remember.”
“Also, after this matter is over, Xiao’er must return to the Dragon Island, and Xue’er to High Heaven Palace…”
“Woah, Father, you’re so long-winded,” Yang Xiao curled his lips, but before he could finish his words, Yang Kai knocked him on the head, causing him to laugh.
“Then let’s not waste any more time, Go.” Yang Kai waved his hand as if he was dismissing a chicken.
Yang Xiao and Yang Xue exchanged a glance before turning around and transforming into a streak of light that shot into the sky.
Yang Kai and Qiong Qi and Liu Yan stood in place, squinting their eyes as they waited for the two’s voices to disappear before Yang Kai said, “Follow them, unless it’s a life or death crisis, try not to act.”
What did he mean by saying he was afraid of a powerful enemy and needed more people? It was just nonsense. Yang Kai was going to the Lower Planes Star Field, so how could there be any powerful enemies? Moreover, there were still four Demon Race Half Saints in his Mysterious Small World. If he really encountered any powerful enemies, the four of them would be enough to deal with them.
The reason for this was because this opportunity was extremely rare, allowing these two children to inspect the results of their several hundred years of cultivation. If Liu Yan and Qiong Qi were to follow them, they would definitely have something to rely on, so he had to think of a way to extract Liu Yan and Qiong Qi from them so they could face this situation alone.
Whether it was a setback or a fortuitous encounter, it was all up to them. Even if a flower in a greenhouse bloomed, it would only be beautiful for a short time, not to mention the wind and rain ahead.
Qiong Qi understood this principle, so when Yang Kai secretly told him about it, he agreed.
On top of that, Yang Kai didn’t have time to continue following the two children. His own matter had been delayed for a while, so he needed to act quickly.
Qiong Qi nodded and stealthily followed.
Liu Yan, however, did not leave. Instead, she simply raised her head and stared at Yang Kai, her eyes as clear as a clear spring.
Yang Kai smiled and lifted his hand to rub her head. In just a few moments, he had rubbed her head into a chicken’s nest, but Liu Yan was still smiling, showing a satisfied look on her face. Without saying a word, she chased after Qiong Qi.
With Qiong Qi and Liu Yan secretly watching over them, Yang Kai was relieved. No one should be able to threaten their safety in this sea.
Everyone left, the big and small ones all left. Yang Kai stood alone in the air, pondered for a moment, then raised his palm and struck his chest.
Yang Kai had used his true strength in this palm strike, and with a single slap, two of his ribs had been broken. Golden blood spurted out from his mouth like a fountain, drenching his clothes and causing his face to pale as he staggered.
Standing on the spot, he coughed for a while and took a moment to catch his breath before activating his Space Law and activating the Space Spirit Bead on his wrist.
With a surge of the Laws, Yang Kai disappeared from where he was and instantly arrived at the other end of the Space Spirit Bead.
With a solemn look on his face, Yang Kai blurted out the words he had prepared beforehand, “Yang Kai of the Sixth Stem Army, greets Iron Blood… Fuck!”
The sudden change in the tone of the greeting was too abrupt. It wasn’t that Yang Kai wanted to be disrespectful to the Great Emperor, it was just that the scene in front of him was too unexpected. Even if Yang Kai had imagined thousands of scenarios, this scene was definitely not one of them.
