In other words, this so-called Scarlet Star’s Sixth Manager was nothing more than an act from Yang Kai, and had never received Scarlet Star’s approval.
At first, this news was only spread by a small number of people, but soon it became known to everyone in Star City. It had only been half an hour, so it was impossible for no one to add fuel to the fire.
For a time, many people looked towards Yang Kai’s mansion with pity, knowing that this Sixth Manager had been abandoned by Scarlet Star.
Not many people believed this rumor, but if it was true, why hadn’t Scarlet Star denied it before? When the Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light Army had arrived, they had obviously not wanted to be implicated by Yang Kai.
There was nothing wrong with this. It was a wise decision to abandon the carriage and protect the body. What’s more, how many days had it been since Yang Kai became the Sixth Manager? He had no foundation in Scarlet Star, so who would want to protect his interests and safety at this time?
Although they understood this, no one was willing to stand up for an irrelevant person at this moment, instead complaining about Yang Kai. If it weren’t for him causing trouble outside, Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light Sect wouldn’t have made such a big fuss and implicated outsiders like them in this Star City. They didn’t know if Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light Sect would force their way in and what kind of fate they would suffer.
The complaints in their hearts were only normal, and there were even some people who had gathered in front of Yang Kai’s mansion and were shouting for him to get out of Star City. Scarlet Star City didn’t welcome him.
At first, there weren’t many people, only a few, but as time passed, more people gathered in front of Yang Kai’s mansion. In less than an incense stick’s worth of time, hundreds and thousands of people had gathered here, and as time passed, more people arrived.
All of them were glaring at Yang Kai's mansion angrily and maliciously, all of them trying to persuade him to leave this place as soon as possible. Whatever grievances he had with the Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light Sect could be resolved on his own, so they didn’t want him to implicate these innocent people.
The waves of voices became louder!
Inside the mansion, the two Great Moon Province disciples and Chen Yue’s faces were pale and their bodies were trembling. With the current situation, there was still a chance of survival if they hid here, but if they left, how could they survive?
Yue He’s tender body also trembled slightly from anger. She hadn’t expected Scarlet Star to be so despicable and shameless. In order to force Yang Kai to leave Star City, they had actually used such a despicable method.
With her Divine Sense, she could naturally sense that there were many Scarlet Star disciples in the crowd who were adding fuel to the fire. These people must have received instructions from Chen Tian Fei and the others, otherwise, how could they dare to act like this?
Outside Star City, Zhong Fan and the other five Open Heaven Stage master's eyes all gathered in front of Yang Kai’s mansion.
Long Tai sneered, “So this is Scarlet Star's plan? He wants to use these people to force that Yang guy away? Chen Tian Fei and the others are getting worse.”
Zhu Li pondered for a moment before replying, “It may not be completely ineffective, after all, it’s a common enemy to the people.”
Luo Qingyun grit his teeth and said, “It’s not like that bastard hasn’t done something that incites public anger before!”
Thinking back to what Yang Kai had done on Yuan Magnetic Mountain, he felt that it was inconceivable. Even though he was one of the leaders of the Sword Pavilion, he didn’t dare to commit such heinous crimes against everyone’s interests, but Yang Kai just had to do it! Not only did he do it, he even managed to survive. [Hoogsway: cause you're a pussy that use number to fight. LOL]
As such, he didn’t think that this kind of method would be of any use. He had personally experienced how crazy this guy was.
“Let’s wait a moment. Since Chen Tian Fei has already given this king his word, let’s see what methods he has up his sleeve. If it really doesn’t work, it won’t be too late for us to act. In any case, he won’t be able to escape here,” Zhong Fan said lightly.
Luo Qingyun’s eyes flashed for a moment before he grinned maliciously, “Good, it’s not a bad idea to slowly appreciate his despair.”
Somewhere in the Star City, Chen Tian Fei and the others were hiding in the void, paying attention to Yang Kai’s movements. Orders were passed down silently, and the crowd gathered in front of Yang Kai’s mansion became more excited.
“Yang Kai, get out of Star City, you’re not welcome here!”
“Yang Kai, are you dead? Why are you hiding here?”
“That’s right, that’s right. Since you’re so powerful, why are you afraid of Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light? Just go out and fight them to the death.”
“Don’t implicate us innocent and pitiful people.”
The sound of people shouting filled the air. Inside the mansion, Yue He’s expression was extremely ugly. Although she knew that many of these people had been used by Scarlet Star, the coldness of their human nature was obvious, and it was truly infuriating.
“Yang Kai, you coward, you have the guts to stir up trouble, but you don’t have the guts to bear it?”
“What should we do if he doesn’t come out? From the looks of it, Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light won’t be able to wait long. If we really anger them, they’ll immediately attack Star City. At that time, if the city gates catch fire, we’ll be caught in the crossfire.”
“If he doesn’t come out, we’ll attack him and drag him out!”
“That’s right, let’s attack together!”
As soon as they finished speaking, a sword light slashed towards Yang Kai’s mansion, followed by countless attacks.
Although the mansion was covered by a great array, it was still not a very profound one, so how could it withstand the attacks of so many people? In just three breaths of time, the great array was broken.
“The Great Array is broken, everyone follow me and capture Yang Kai!”
Someone shouted and rushed forward.
Hundreds of people followed closely behind and rushed into the mansion.
Yue He was stunned. Just now, she had been hesitating about whether she should call Yang Kai to inform him about the situation outside, but before she could make up her mind, the great array of this mansion had been broken.
Looking up, she saw a group of fierce-looking people rushing in with artifacts in their hands, all of them wearing hostile expressions.
“This woman is with Yang Kai. Capture her first, don’t worry about Yang Kai not showing himself!” The leader pointed at Yue He and shouted.
Yue He’s face suddenly sank. No matter what, she was still a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, a famous figure in the outside world. How could an Emperor Realm dare act so presumptuously in front of her? But now, someone was actually pointing at her nose and shouting.
In front of Yang Kai, she was very obedient, always acting as a maid and listening to everything he said, but that was just a disguise. When had Yang Kai ever seen her true nature?
Killing intent rose from her anger as she stared at the person who had just shouted and slowly raised her slender jade finger.
At this moment, a dignified roar resounded through the sky, “So noisy!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a figure suddenly appeared in front of Yue He, wrapped in a cold aura that could penetrate one’s heart, causing one’s heart to tremble.
“Young Master!” Yue He quickly put down her finger, the murderous intent on her face instantly disappearing without a trace, her beautiful eyes flashing with fear, as if she was a child who had been bullied at home.
Although Yang Kai was in seclusion comprehending the Wood and Fire Element Divine Ability, because of the little fatty Xu Zhen, he had not completely opened the Secret Room’s Restrictions. Instead, he had been paying attention to the outside world. After all, this was his first time meeting Xu Zhen, so it was naturally impossible for him to trust him completely.
He was aware of the arrival of the Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light, he was aware of the unrest in Star City, he was also aware of the clamor outside the mansion, he just couldn’t be bothered.
But now that even the mansion’s Spirit Array had been broken, he could no longer continue his retreat.
Having no other choice but to show up, Yang Kai was quite annoyed. He had just entered a critical period of closed door cultivation, and if he were to be interrupted at this critical moment, he naturally wouldn’t be in a good mood.
Looking around coldly, the hundreds and thousands of people crowded the entire mansion, many of them unable to squeeze in from the outside.
“Is he Yang Kai?” Someone asked in a low voice. Many of the people who had rushed in were people who had never even met Yang Kai before and had only been used by others.
“I think so.”
“I’ve finally met the real master. I thought he would hide forever.”
Many people whispered to each other while others secretly observed Yang Kai and found that there was nothing special about him. They really didn’t know how such a person had provoked the joint attack of Sword Pavilion and Thunder Light groups.
On the other hand, the people who had been clamoring to drag Yang Kai out of Star City were now silent, their expressions tense as they quietly retreated to the back of the crowd. These were all Scarlet Star disciples who had followed Chen Tian Fei’s orders and acted in secret. Now that they had forced Yang Kai out and achieved their goal, they naturally had to retreat.
“You want to run?” Yang Kai coldly snorted as he raised his hand and grabbed the person in front of him, lifting him up into the air while simultaneously activating his Space Laws. In the blink of an eye, the space within a thousand zhang radius became viscous.
Countless muffled groans rang out as the weaker cultivators froze in place, feeling as if a great pressure was pressing down on them, threatening to crush them into dust. Although the stronger ones weren’t so weak, they were still struggling to move.
“Are you the one leading the trouble?” Yang Kai stared coldly at the man he was holding in the air and asked lightly.
“No, that’s not it,” The man replied in panic, the fear in his heart indescribable.
He was also at the Emperor Realm and had condensed several types of Open Heaven forces. If he was outside, he would have been a Half Open Heaven cultivator. He only needed two more types of power to reach the next level, but now that he was imprisoned by Yang Kai, he couldn’t even struggle free!
The violent and pure energy poured into his body, causing his body to become extremely weak and unable to resist.
He couldn’t help thinking about the rumors he had heard in Star City about Yang Kai killing Poison Lady and Gan Hong with the strength of an Emperor Realm. At that time, he had scoffed at it. Open Heaven Stage cultivators were Open Heaven Stage cultivators after all, so how could they be killed by Yang Kai in such a special environment?
In private, everyone said that Yang Kai had launched a sneak attack, and the words that had spread from Scarlet Star just now had undoubtedly confirmed this point. Yang Kai had indeed launched a sneak attack.
But now it seemed that the rumors were wrong!
With such strength, it was likely he really had the ability to kill Open Heaven Stage masters!
At this moment of life and death, this man wept bitterly, “Sixth Manager, please spare my life, this humble subordinate is just following orders, please spare my life, Sixth Manager.”
“Sixth Manager?” Yang Kai chuckled as he looked towards a certain direction, his eyes seemingly able to pierce through space as a mocking look appeared on his face.
