Yang Kai’s speeding figure suddenly came to a stop. Although he knew that this was a trap, he still couldn’t move his feet. Gritting his teeth, he stopped in place and turned around to wait.
This Yue He was a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so unless he used the Space Spirit Bead, like the last time he came out of Golden Crow Divine Palace, it would be impossible for him to completely escape from her. However, even if he used the Space Spirit Bead, he might not have a chance. The reason he was able to escape from the Proprietress and the others last time was because of his luck and because the Proprietress and the others were concerned about the Golden Crow’s corpse, he had disturbed their vision, allowing him to have a chance to succeed. If he tried again, Yang Kai wouldn’t have the confidence.
Sooner or later, he would be caught, so Yang Kai decided not to run.
He did not sense any murderous intent from Yue He, otherwise he would not have dared to act so arrogantly.
Soon, Yue He’s figure appeared in Yang Kai’s field of vision, and a moment later, she was already more than ten kilometers away.
Yang Kai raised his hand, “Don’t come any closer, otherwise don’t blame me for being ruthless!” As he spoke, he formed a series of hand seals with a solemn expression.
Yue He stopped and quietly observed him.
Only now did Yang Kai realize that this woman’s injuries weren’t light, causing him to feel a burst of joy. He knew that this was the work of the Proprietress, but he didn’t know what the final outcome of that battle would be, so he couldn’t help feeling uneasy.
Yue He’s eyes flashed a strange light as she smiled at him, “Do you want to know if Lan Youruo is still alive?”
“Yes!” Yang Kai said decisively.
Yue He sighed, “Don’t worry, she’s not dead yet.”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “You think a bunch of trash like you can take the Proprietress’s life? Dream on!”
Yue He said, “Since you have so much confidence in her, how can you stop? In the end, aren’t you just worried?”
“So what? I just wanted to confirm it,” Yang Kai glanced at her, “Now it’s your turn to worry. If the Proprietress doesn’t die, I think your good days will come to an end.”
“That’s right!” Yue He couldn’t help nodding, coughing lightly as she spoke, “The good days have indeed come to an end, so I came here to find you.”
Yang Kai sneered, “What’s the point of looking for me? Do you think I’ll help you?”
Yue He said, “As long as you are in my hands, I believe Elder Sister Lan won’t make things too difficult for me. At the very least, she can sit down and have a good talk with me.”
“You’re thinking too much. I’m just a shop assistant from the First Inn. Today, you failed on your ambush on the Proprietress, so when she recovers in the future, she will definitely settle accounts with you one by one!”
Yue He’s expression changed slightly, seemingly able to imagine this scene as she forced a smile, “Don’t underestimate yourself. Although your strength isn’t high, you should have some weight on Elder Sister Lan’s side.”
Yang Kai frowned slightly. Previously, Old Bai had also said that the Proprietress thought highly of him, and now Yue He had said something similar, causing him to feel somewhat confused.
He hadn’t known the Proprietress for a long time, and the only thing that had happened between them was that the First Inn had been destroyed. However, after thinking about it carefully, he realized that the Proprietress had indeed taken care of him during this time. She had given him the 7 Faces, refined the Shadowless Gauze, and even given him the Domain Shuttle. The last time he had a conflict with Young Master Hai, the Proprietress had even killed him outside the Star City…
Thinking about it, the Proprietress didn't really say anything to him.
“Elder Sister Lan is seriously injured and is currently recuperating in the Universe Temple. I’m afraid she won’t be able to recover in a year or so,” Yue He suddenly changed the subject, “Before Sister Lan goes to my place, I hope you can follow me.”
“You said I would follow you?”
Yue He covered her mouth and chuckled, “Although I’m injured, taking you down shouldn’t be a problem.”
Yang Kai’s hand seals changed as he shouted, “You try! If you dare to attack, that Old Yu's fate will be your tomorrow!”
Yue He’s expression froze slightly. The scene of Old Man Yu being killed by Mie Meng was still vivid in her mind. The Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage was completely helpless in front of Mie Meng. Even his Soul Avatar had been pecked out and swallowed. Although she was a Fifth Order, she was still injured, and she wasn’t much stronger than the old man Yu.
As their eyes met, Yue He’s beautiful eyes narrowed slightly while Yang Kai’s expression became provocative.
After a long time, Yue He shouted, “Are you trying to scare me?”
She reached out and grabbed Yang Kai.
Yang Kai’s expression became bitter, and he didn’t even have the mood to resist before she grabbed his collar and pulled out his tiger skin to act as a flag. Once this matter was exposed, it would be meaningless. Mie Meng's Golden Plume Feather was already gone, and facing an expert like Yue He, any resistance would only be asking for trouble. With such a close distance between them, even if he wanted to teleport away, he wouldn’t have a chance.
“You really are lying!” Yue He snorted lightly, raising her hand and knocking Yang Kai’s head lightly.
Yang Kai covered his head and stared at her angrily.
He had never been knocked on the head by a woman in his life, it was simply a great humiliation, but the situation was where his strength is lower, so he could only swallow his pride.
“You still dare to stare at me!” Yue He raised her hand and knocked him again.
Yang Kai took two steps back and shouted angrily, “I’m warning you, if you dare touch me again, don’t blame me for being impolite!”
“Oh?” Yue He’s eyes narrowed slightly, “How are you being impolite? Tell me about it.”
Yang Kai glared at her angrily, his anger rising to the extreme.
Suddenly, Yue He smiled lightly, “Alright, alright, I’ll compromise this with you. I’m not in a good condition, so I won’t waste my energy trying to imprison you. Be good and don’t run, everyone can save some time.”
“At least you know what’s good for you!” Yang Kai nodded in satisfaction. Since this woman planned to capture him alive and use him as a bargaining chip to negotiate with the Proprietress in the future, she probably wouldn’t do anything to him. Without any threat to his life, Yang Kai’s mood relaxed.
Yue He slowly shook her head, no longer having any interest in bickering with him. After confirming the direction, she said, “Then it’s settled. Follow me.”
As she spoke, she really led the way.
Yang Kai hesitated for a moment before deciding to give up on escaping. Although Yue He’s back was facing him, Yang Kai believed that as long as he made any sudden movements, she would immediately act.
In front of a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, Yang Kai really didn’t have the confidence to escape, so he secretly made up his mind to wait a year and a half before the Proprietress came to pick him up and see how he would take revenge! But then again, the Proprietress should come to pick him up, right?
Along the way, Yue He clearly wanted to recuperate, but Yang Kai was too lazy to say anything to her, so the two of them simply shuttled through the void and passed through several Domain Gates.
The way the two of them interacted was a bit strange. In name, Yang Kai was being held hostage, but in reality, Yue He didn’t make things difficult for him. Instead, she deliberately slowed down while flying so that he could catch up.
After six or seven days, Yue He’s injuries had mostly recovered, and three days ago, this woman had asked Yang Kai many questions.
When Yang Kai was in a good mood, he would chat with her for a while, but when he was in a bad mood, he would ignore her. Yue He didn’t get angry, instead smiling all day long, making Yang Kai wonder if this woman’s mental state was a bit twisted.
In particular, the way she often looked at him was somewhat strange.
“After passing through the Domain Gate in front of us, we’ll reach our destination after passing through two more Great Domains,” Yue He pointed to the Domain Gate in front as she flew.
“Your home is quite far away,” Yang Kai followed behind her. After spending a few days together, Yang Kai’s hostility towards her had lessened.
“It’s alright, I’ll go to the Star City later and buy some things.”
Yang Kai didn’t comment. In any case, he didn’t have any initiative right now, so Yue He could go wherever she wanted. However, this woman actually dared to take him to the Star City, wasn’t she afraid he would take this opportunity to escape?
Seemingly having guessed what he was thinking, Yue He turned around and smiled lightly, “The Star City is a land without master, so fighting is not out of option. If you want to escape, you can try.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help curling his lips. No wonder this woman was so bold. On top of that, she had come all the way to this Star City, but instead of going to any other Star City, she wanted to go to this one.
After passing through the Domain Gate, Yue He led Yang Kai to a Star City. This Star City gave Yang Kai a completely different feeling than the one in the first inn. As soon as he entered the Star City, he ran into people fighting on the streets.
On top of that, the gazes of the surrounding people were also filled with malicious intent, especially when they looked at Yue He’s graceful figure. From time to time, greed flashed across their eyes.
However, because they were wary of Yue He’s powerful aura, none of them dared to cause any trouble.
Rather than calling this place a Star City, Yang Kai felt that it was more appropriate to call it a black market. It seemed to be a place where people who lived in the dark gathered.
The entire Star City was very large, several times larger than the Star City which was managed by Great Battle Heaven. There were also many people gathered here, and Yang Kai estimated that there were at least several hundred thousand people.
Following Yue He into several shops, Yang Kai watched as she spent money like water. Yang Kai was secretly amazed; this Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage was truly extraordinary.
The things Yue He bought were very messy. Some were for cultivation while others were for healing. It was obvious that Yue He often came to this Star City and was familiar with some of the shopkeepers.
After shopping for more than half a day, they finally managed to buy everything they needed, and without stopping, the two of them left.
At this moment, a disturbance suddenly broke out on the street and many people looked up towards the sky.
With such a big commotion, Yang Kai and Yue He naturally couldn’t remain unaware, so they couldn’t help but stop and look towards the crowd.
Seeing this scene, Yang Kai frowned. In the sky, he saw a large cloud of pink mist sweep towards him. This pink mist covered an indescribable area and seemed to be able to fill his entire field of vision.
When Yang Kai first saw it, the pink mist was still far away. In the blink of an eye, it had arrived above the Star City and was rapidly descending.
“What is this?” Yang Kai was stunned, instinctively feeling that something was wrong.
“Great Ruins Fog!” Before Yue He could answer, a frightened cry rang out from the street, as if someone had recognized the origin of this pink mist.
Yue He’s expression also changed drastically as she grabbed Yang Kai’s arm and shouted, “Run!”
Yang Kai only felt his body become lighter as the surrounding scenery rapidly receded. Yue He was trying her best to escape from the mist’s range.
