Long Wind City, a small city in the north region, its size was only comparable to Maplewood City.
If it weren’t for the fact that Yang Kai had done some work during the day, he probably wouldn’t have known where this Long Wind City was located.
Five thousand kilometers, with his current speed, it only took him less than half a cup of tea to reach it. Looking around, Yang Kai sighed softly. There were countless places like Long Wind City in the entire Star Boundary.
The small city was in ruins and messy. Although the Demon Race’s army had yet to wreak havoc here, the residents of the city had long since fled for their lives. This small city, which was originally not a bustling place, was now in an even more desolate state.
This was just a miniature version of the countless places in the Star Boundary.
The flames of war between the two worlds spread throughout the entire world. After this battle, even if the Star Boundary won, how long would it take for this world to recover? Perhaps thousands, tens of thousands of years, or even longer…
But as long as there was a possibility of recovery, it was enough to make everyone in the Star Boundary pay with their lives to prevent the Demon Race from invading.
On top of the city wall, Yang Kai stood with his hands behind his back and looked up at the sky. Dark clouds covered the sky and the moonlight was not leaking. He grinned, the moon was dark and the wind was strong, time to kill and set fire.
A rustling sound came from behind him and Yang Kai turned around, a look of surprise appearing on his face.
The person who had invited him here had actually appeared so openly without any intention of hiding.
Could he have been mistaken? After Yang Kai saw the face of this person, he frowned slightly.
“I was afraid you wouldn’t come, but you’re quite bold, running out at this time. If I were to invite three or five masters here and set up an inescapable net, what would you do?” A pleasant voice rang out, crisp and pleasant to the ear. Not far away, a beautiful figure flew over and landed five meters in front of Yang Kai, smiling as she stared at him. Along with the wind, a faint fragrance wafted over, making one intoxicated.
This distance was definitely a dangerous one for the newcomer. Yang Kai, who was proficient in the Space Laws, could instantly launch a fatal attack, so no matter how strong she was, it was impossible for her to avoid it.
“Senior Sheng!” Yang Kai was stunned, “That confidential letter… was it from you?”
Standing in front of him was none other than Rakshasa Sect’s Sheng Yuzhu! This was the Pseudo Emperor he had rescued from the Void Crack tens of thousands of years ago and had once experienced a great Dao struggle!
Strictly speaking, the Great Dao competition that Sheng Yuzhu experienced was the last time. After all, she was from the same generation as Wu Kuang, and when Yang Kai brought her out from the Void Crack, he had also wanted to confirm her identity.
In the end, she casually reported the names of Wu Kuang, Yao Jun, Chu Tianji, Duan Hongchen, Zhan Wuhen, and the others…
Before that, Yang Kai couldn’t believe that a person could survive in the Void Crack for so long. The reason she had fallen into the Void Crack was because she had been tricked by Wu Kuang.
Back then, her strength was on par with Wu Kuang’s, both of them having the qualifications to become Great Emperors. In order to reduce the number of competitors, Wu Kuang had plotted to throw her into a void crack before the Great Dao Competition arrived, all the way until Yang Kai found her. So although she had experienced such a thing once, she had not participated in it. It could be said that she had missed it perfectly.
Many years ago, after Yang Kai had brought her out from the Void Crack of Rakshasa Sect, they had rarely contacted each other. Later, when the war between the two world broke out, Yang Kai had also thought of her and inquired about the news of Rakshasa Sect. After all, he still had the title of a guest Elder of Rakshasa Sect on him, so he was willing to take care of this woman as much as he could. However, after asking around, Yang Kai learned that Rakshasa Sect had disappeared more than a decade ago. Counting the time, it was after Yang Kai had helped Sheng Yuzhu escape a few years ago.
Since then, the entire Rakshasa Sect, along with Sheng Yuzhu, had disappeared.
After knowing that it was Sheng Yuzhu who was looking for him, Yang Kai understood that he had been thinking too much. Since she had appeared so openly and even said such things, it meant that she had no malicious intent towards him. Moreover, Yang Kai had made inquiries about Sheng Yuzhu afterwards.
Once, when he mentioned this woman to Zhan Wuhen and learned that she was still alive, Zhan Wuhen was quite surprised. After all, after tens of thousands of years, most of his old acquaintances had passed away and only a few of his old friends were still alive. Even though he didn’t have any friendship with Sheng Yuzhu, after learning that she was still alive, he still smiled.
Towards this woman, Zhan Wuhen only had one comment; she was not a bad person!
Since Zhan Wuhen had said so, it was enough to prove her character.
“Who else do you think it was from?” Sheng Yuzhu tilted her head and looked at Yang Kai with a smile. Ignoring the fact that she had lived for tens of thousands of years, just looking at her expression, one would think she was only twenty or eighteen years old.
Old monster! Yang Kai silently cursed in his heart and chuckled, “It’s precisely because I don’t know who gave it to me that I came here to take a look.” Pausing for a moment, he said, “It seems Senior knows something?” Otherwise, she wouldn’t have said that Yang Kai was bold.
Sheng Yuzhu stared at him dumbly, “For you to ask such a question, it seems you already know something! Good, you saved me the trouble of explaining.”
“How did Senior know?” Yang Kai asked suspiciously. The news shouldn’t have spread so quickly.
Sheng Yuzhu brushed her hair behind her ear and smiled, “Have you forgotten what I told you? I once experienced something like this and am more sensitive to the changes in the World Energy than anyone else. I can feel that thing is about to appear.”
“Profound Heaven Temple?” Yang Kai’s expression became solemn. First, he had seen through a trace of the Heavenly Secret, then he had received a message from the Tian Shu Great Emperor, and now that he had heard Sheng Yuzhu's words. It seemed that the opening of the Profound Heaven Temple was imperative.
“That’s right!” Sheng Yuzhu nodded, not surprised that Yang Kai knew about the existence of the Profound Heaven Temple. After all, although this was a secret, it wasn’t that no one knew about it. The Pseudo Emperors who had followed the Great Emperors for many years must have heard about it before.
It was also because of this that Li Wuyi knew about the existence of the Profound Heaven Temple.
Staring steadily at Yang Kai, Sheng Yuzhu asked, “Since you know so much, doesn’t that mean you want to go in?”
Yang Kai nodded.
“As expected…” A look of understanding appeared on Sheng Yuzhu’s face, “I knew you would enter.” Although she had been living in seclusion with Rakshasa Sect all these years, she was not completely ignorant of the outside world, especially when it came to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai smiled, “How could I miss such a grand event? However, Senior, do you know the exact time Profound Heaven Temple opens?”
If Sheng Yuzhu knew the exact time, he would definitely be able to grasp more advantages.
“Within a month,” Sheng Yuzhu replied, “After the last change in the world, within a month, the Profound Heaven Temple appeared. Unfortunately, I was deceived by Wu Kuang before I could even wait for that moment.”
Speaking of the grievances from tens of thousands of years ago, Sheng Yuzhu’s tone had become indifferent. Compared to the Pseudo Emperors who had long since fallen in the river of history, she had at least lived until now. When the time came for Profound Heaven Temple to open again, she would have another chance to participate.
“Does Senior want to join forces with me?” Yang Kai asked.
Sheng Yuzhu slowly shook her head, “I must first apologize to you about this matter. When you rescued me back then, I did say that if there was an opportunity, we could join forces. But in this current situation, I’m afraid joining forces is impossible. Firstly, the opening of the Profound Heaven Temple this time was too sudden. I’m afraid it was because of the Demon Land’s corrosion that the world felt a sense of crisis. In the end, only one person was able to become a Great Emperor. If I joined forces with you, in the end, we would have fallen out. Rather than that, it would be better if we didn’t join forces from the start, lest we fall out in the end. Secondly, in your current situation, I don’t dare to join forces with you. I’m sure you know the reason.”
Yang Kai was now a fat piece of meat in the eyes of these Half-Saints and Pseudo Emperors. Sheng Yuzhu will only join forces with him if her head had been kicked by a donkey before.
As she said this, Sheng Yuzhu’s face showed a trace of embarrassment. After all, she was somewhat going back on her word.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “I understand.” He didn’t have any intention of bickering over this matter, he felt that it was a good thing for Sheng Yuzhu to explain everything to him.
“Then Senior calling me out means…”
“This jade slip contains information about the Profound Heaven Temple. Take a good look at it when you return,” As she spoke, Sheng Yuzhu handed over a jade slip.
Yang Kai stretched out his hand to receive it, a look of joy appearing on his face, “Does Senior know about the situation inside the Profound Heaven Temple?”
Sheng Yuzhu shook her head, “I’m not too sure, after all, I’ve never been to this place before. I’ve only heard people talk about some things in the past, so I’m not sure how much of the information in this jade slip is true or false. I can’t tell myself, so you’ll have to decide for yourself.”
Even though she said so, Yang Kai was overjoyed and cupped his fists, “Many thanks, Senior.”
Sheng Yuzhu waved her hand and said, “The life-saving grace is difficult to repay. If it weren’t for you, I’m afraid I would still be trapped in that void crack, slowly waiting to die.”
Yang Kai grinned, “To Senior, this is a life-saving favor, but to me, it’s nothing more than lifting my hand.” Waving the jade slip in his hand, he continued, “This is what I need the most right now, we’re even.”
Sheng Yuzhu let out a long sigh, knowing in her heart that she owed her life to Yang Kai. After a moment of silence, she said, “If we can meet in the Profound Heaven Temple, if there is anything you need help with, feel free to ask. Before the final struggle begins, I won’t refuse to help you.”
“When the time comes, I will have to trouble Senior,” Yang Kai grinned.
“On top of that, I have something else to ask of you.”
Yang Kai listened attentively, “Senior, please speak.”
“Although I didn’t intend to pass down my legacy on the Rakshasa Sect, they still have some kind of relationship with me. Over the years, I have been recuperating and they have offered me many gifts and tributes. I don’t know if I will be able to return this time, but now that the situation in the Star Boundary has changed and a group of women are wandering about, if there is no one to take care of them, I’m afraid they will die sooner or later. I would like to ask you to bring them back to High Heaven Palace, whether it is to fill them into the legions to allow them to live or die, it is up to you.”
