Yang Kai was also used to her and nodded slightly.
“Senior Brother Yang!” Meng Hong and the others cupped their fists, as if a great weight had been lifted from their hearts.
“Your humble subordinate greets Sir!” Guo Ziyan said firmly, and the thirty or so people behind him all cupped their fists, “Greetings Sir, we welcome Sir’s return!” Each of them was full of vigor, their tone filled with respect and admiration!
It was impossible not to admire him. A few days ago, none of them had thought that someone in the Emperor Realm would be able to accomplish such an incredible feat. All of them, with the exception of Guo Ziyan, who was a Second Order Open Heaven Stage master, were all at the Emperor Realm. What they saw that day had already made them worship this young man in front of them.
“No need to be so polite, stand up,” Yang Kai said, raising his hand.
Only then did Guo Ziyan and the others stand up.
Yue He pursed her lips and smiled, “It’s good for Young Master to know that Commander Guo has already resigned from his position as Great Commander of Scarlet Star. These people are no longer from Scarlet Star.”
“You’ve resigned from your position as Great Commander?” Yang Kai glanced at Guo Ziyan and the group of people behind him and nodded, “It’s good that you’ve resigned. What are your plans from now on?”
Guo Ziyan cupped his fists and said in a low voice, “This humble subordinate is willing to follow Sir and serve you!”
“We are willing to follow Sir and serve Sir!” Everyone said in unison.
Yang Kai understood immediately. He knew that during the battle that day, these people had already been labelled as his people. No matter who it was, they were all his people, and Scarlet Star’s side probably didn’t dare to keep them, which was why they were able to leave Scarlet Star so easily. Otherwise, why would Scarlet Star allow their disciples to betray them?
Guo Ziyan’s temperament was quite good. On the Yuan Magnetic Mountain that day, he didn’t back down even after facing the threat of the Thunder Light and was instead willing to live and die with Yang Kai. It was obvious that he was a trustworthy person, but his cultivation was a bit lacking. Even if he managed to improve in the future, he would at most be a Fourth Order.
However, the human heart was the most important, so there was no harm in having a lower cultivation. What’s more, Yang Kai’s current situation really needed some manpower to handle some miscellaneous matters, so he immediately nodded and said, “Good, since that’s the case, you will follow me in the future. I can’t guarantee anything else, but as long as you are sincere, I will not let you down!”
Everyone’s spirits were greatly lifted as they all shouted, “Many thanks, Sir!”
All of them were overjoyed. With the protection of a Killing God like Yang Kai, their status in the Great Ruins Boundary had risen greatly, so who would they need to fear in the future?
“Congratulations, Commander Guo, your wish has finally come true,” Yue He smiled sweetly.
Guo Ziyan’s old face blushed slightly as he blushed and said, “Miss Yue He, please don’t make fun of me, I’ll need your help in the future.”
Yue He smiled even wider.
After laughing, Yue He took out a Space Ring and handed it to Yang Kai, saying, “These are the things from the people you killed before. They are collected for you and sorted out by category.”
Yang Kai took it, glanced at it, and put it away without a change in expression.
Yue He was a little surprised. There were a lot of things here, after all, it was the wealth of three thousand people, especially the few Mid Rank Open Heaven Stage Space Rings. All of them were extremely rich, so she thought Yang Kai would be happy to receive them, but to her surprise, there was no reaction at all.
Could it be that the harvest from the Yuan Magnetic Mountain had satisfied him?
Just as she was wondering about this, Yang Kai suddenly said, “Good, since you have this experience, I’ll have to trouble you again.”
Saying so, Yang Kai waved his hand.
In the next moment, a series of clanking sounds rang out as a large number of Space Rings appeared in the courtyard, piling up like a small mountain in front of everyone.
Everyone was shocked speechless as they stared at the scene in front of them, their hearts trembling.
The pile of Space Rings in front of him numbered in the tens of thousands.
Yue He’s face was pale as she asked in a trembling voice, “Young Master, how many people have you killed?”
She was on the verge of tears. Wasn’t this Young Master’s murderous nature a bit too strong? Why had he killed so many people on his trip to the Sword Pavilion Headquarter?
No wonder Yang Kai didn’t react when he took the Space Ring. It was only the accumulation of three thousand people’s Space Rings, but Yang Kai had tens of thousands of people's Space Rings on his side, so how could he show any reaction?
Guo Ziyan and the others were also stunned.
Just as Yue He had thought, this Space Ring represented a life. Tens of thousands of Space Rings was equivalent to tens of thousands of people. With Yang Kai’s return, how many people had died in just three or four days?
What’s more, how could the Sword Pavilion have so many people for him to kill?
Their heart skipped a beat. Could it be that this Sir’s murderous intent had risen and he had slaughtered everyone in the Star City? If that was the case, it would be an incredible matter.
“The situation is a bit complicated, I’ll tell you later,” Yang Kai waved his hand and called out, “Guo Ziyan.”
“Your humble subordinate is here,” Guo Ziyan replied solemnly, his heart pounding.
“Bring some people to tidy up the Space Rings here and divide them into categories like before.”
“Yes!” Guo Ziyan secretly swallowed his saliva. With several dozen of them, arranging tens of thousands of Space Rings was a big project, and it would take at least half a month.
Meng Hong said, “I’ll help too.”
Yang Kai nodded, “Thank you, Brother Meng.”
Meng Hong couldn’t help laughing, “Brother Yang is too serious. This Meng is extremely grateful to you for granting me the Sun’s True Fire. Such a trivial matter is nothing worth mentioning.”
Leaving behind Guo Ziyan, Meng Hong, and the others in the courtyard, Yang Kai summoned Yue He into the hall. Yue He served him some tea and looked at him nervously, “Young Master, what happened? Did you really slaughter an entire Star City?”
Killing a few people wasn’t a big deal, but if Yang Kai really massacred an entire Star City, it would be too much of a mistake. Perhaps in the future, he would also develop a heart demon and fall into the Demon Path.
How could she not be nervous?
“How is that possible?” Yang Kai sat down on his chair with a cup of tea in his hand. This time, he had come to find trouble with the Sword Pavilion. If they really fought, he wouldn’t implicate innocent people, let alone slaughter an entire Star City. “I already told you that things are a bit complicated.”
“What’s going on?” Yue He twisted her hips and sat down on the chair next to him.
Yang Kai frowned, “Before I went there, the Star City of the Sword Pavilion was razed to the ground and everyone died. Those Space Rings were just picked up by me.”
“Picked up…” Yue He was speechless, this luck was too good, running over to pick up tens of thousands of Space Rings, such a huge fortune, quickly realizing the seriousness of the problem, “The Star City of Sword Pavilion was flattened? Who has such ability?”
The few forces in the Star City weren’t too strong, and Sword Pavilion was the strongest. Who could flatten them?
“A Beast Tide!” Yang Kai let out a sigh of relief, “It’s not a simple Beast Tide, it’s not quite the same as the one we encountered before. I don’t know what the exact situation is, but the Sword Pavilion Master died there and no one survived.”
“The Sword Pavilion’s Pavilion Master is also dead?” Yue He was truly shocked. She also knew that the Pavilion Master was a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master, someone who was even stronger than her. Such a person was shockingly talented and could be considered one of the best in all the Cave Heaven or Paradise, yet he had actually died in the Great Ruins Boundary? In shock, she asked, “How do you know the Sword Pavilion’s Pavilion Master?”
“Lu Xue said so, otherwise how could I know him?” Yang Kai put down his teacup and chuckled, “I’m afraid you won’t be able to guess who killed the Sword Pavilion Master.”
Yue He wore a look of inquiry, but Yang Kai didn’t try to keep her in suspense as he lightly spat out a few words, “Heavenly Moon Demon Spider!”
Yue He’s expression suddenly changed, obviously knowing what the Heavenly Moon Demon Spider represented. It was an Ancient Holy Spirit! An existence that stood at the pinnacle of this world, only a High Rank Open Heaven Stage could fight it.
“When I was collecting Space Rings in that Star City, I met a guy with a mantis head.” As Yang Kai spoke, he tossed out the mantis head corpse.
Yue He turned her head and saw that this corpse didn’t have a head and was instead covered in a dark green color. Its two blade arms were extremely sharp and its legs were covered in spikes. Although it was in human form, it still retained a large portion of its Monster Beast form.
“This guy isn’t simple. I was seriously injured by him and it took me three days to recover,” Yang Kai snapped his fingers.
“He can injure you?” Yue He was surprised, but soon after, a look of suspicion appeared on her face, “That’s strange, if he can injure you, his strength must be extraordinary. Why is he still like this? He should have taken human form long ago.”
“I’m also curious about this, so I brought it back for you to see. How much do you know about the Great Ruins Boundary?”
Yue He shook her head solemnly, “I don’t know much, I’ve only heard of the Great Ruins Boundary could suppressed and sealed the small universe world, and this place has no Open Heaven. Only those who have come here before and left safely know what happened here.”
Pondering for a moment, she speculated, “The World Laws of this Great Ruins Boundary are extremely strange. A mutated beast like the Scarlet Flood Dragon and Earth Dragon is quite strong, so it should have taken human form long ago, but it has yet to gain sentience. Perhaps it’s because of the strange World Laws here, but… well, this praying mantis’ half-human half-monster appearance is probably the same.”
Yang Kai nodded, “That’s the only possibility, but the Great Ruins Boundary actually has a Holy Spirit… It’s not as simple as we thought.”
Yue He also felt the same way. Even an existence like the Sword Pavilion had been destroyed by the Beast Tide, so Scarlet Star’s side wasn’t too safe either. Not to mention a terrifying existence like the Holy Spirit, even if it was a few more existences like the Mantis Head, Scarlet Star might not be able to resist. This was someone who could injure Yang Kai, and ordinary people would find it difficult to resist. Yue He even suspected that with her own ability, she wouldn’t be able to last an incense stick of time against him.
“No matter what, we must be careful in the future,” Yang Kai warned, already considering a way out. If one day he was really blocked by a Holy Spirit, he would have a chance to retreat.
As the two of them were talking, Chen Yue suddenly walked in from the outside and carefully observed Yang Kai’s expression before whispering, “Sir, the Managers of Scarlet Star are outside requesting an audience.”
