Hearing this, Yue He pursed her lips and smiled, “They're here to seek peace.”
“They came out of the city before, but I ignored them,” Yang Kai sneered.
“Then they must be restless right now,” Yue He said as she handed over a box, “After you left that day, the Scarlet Star’s Chief Manager brought someone here to deliver this item to you. From what he said, he wanted me to put in a good word for you after you returned.”
“What is it?” Yang Kai glanced at the box.
Yue He casually replied, “I’m afraid you’re not interested in it, three Fifht Grade materials.”
Yang Kai nodded and took a sip of tea.
Chen Yue’s heart pounded as she listened from below. Three Fifth Grade materials, she didn’t even know if she would be able to obtain them in this lifetime. Even if they were placed outside, they would still be worth a lot of money, but now, it was given as a gift, and the person who it was given to didn't seem to care.
Feeling the insurmountable gap between her and some people, her heart sank.
Yue He observed Yang Kai’s expression and saw that he didn’t directly refuse, so she turned her head and asked, “Who’s here?”
Chen Yue whispered, “The several Managers of Scarlet Star have all come, the Chief Manager who came here once has also come.”
Yue He nodded and looked towards Yang Kai, asking, “Young Master, do you want to see them or not?”
Yang Kai put down his teacup, patted his clothes, and grinned, “Since they're here to give me some benefits, why not?”
Yue He was speechless, knowing that Scarlet Star was about to lose a lot of blood this time, but she didn’t know how ruthless this Young Master’s demand would be.
In front of the mansion, the Scarlet Star's Managers all wore ugly expressions. They had already given Yang Kai enough face, but Yang Kai had turned a deaf ear to them and ruthlessly trampled on their faces, making everyone feel humiliated.
Thinking about Yang Kai’s terrifying strength, they didn’t dare say anything.
This time, under the leadership of the Chief Manager, they had all set out to pay a visit, yet they had been left outside for so long. This was simply intolerable.
“Chief Manager, if you ask me, I think we should just go in and wait here for as long as we can,” Bei Yushan said in a low voice. Mainly because he was standing here, the streets were filled with people, many of them looking at them strangely, making him feel uncomfortable.
“Shut up!” Chen Tian Fei was shocked and quickly shouted, “Do you want to die? If you don’t want to live, don’t drag us down with you.”
In his heart, he wished he could slap this idiot to death. How could he even think of such a stupid idea?
Bei Yushan scratched his head, not knowing what he had said wrong.
Chen Tian Fei took a step forward and whispered to the Chief Manager, “We’ve already sent out our people. In less than a day or two, we’ll know the situation at Sword Pavilion. Chief Manager, no matter what, please bear with it for now and wait for the report of the situation on the Sword Pavilion before making a decision.”
The Chief Manager didn’t say anything, as if he hadn’t heard anything.
To the Managers of Scarlet Star, what they were most curious about now was the result of the battle between Yang Kai and Sword Pavilion. If Yang Kai won, it would mean that no one in the Great Ruins Boundary would be able to restrain him. If Sword Pavilion won, it would be for the best. At the very least, Yang Kai could not act lawlessly.
Therefore, the moment he noticed Yang Kai’s return, Chen Tian Fei had already sent people out to the Sword Pavilion headquarter to inquire about the situation.
However, there would definitely be some delays along the way, and they were also afraid that Yang Kai would settle accounts with them later, so the several Managers had come over to make peace.
What was going on over there? Chen Tian Fei’s mind was filled with wild thoughts. With the strength Yang Kai had displayed before, the Sword Pavilion should not be able to resist, but the Sword Pavilion's Master was a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master, so he couldn’t help having some hope.
A Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage was only a step away from the High Rank, and the Sword Pavilion Master’s origin were quite mysterious. It was said that he came from a very powerful force, so his background must be extraordinary.
At this moment, the door to the mansion opened and a timid figure appeared.
Chen Tian Fei quickly stepped forward and cupped his fists, “Young Lady Yue, how is the situation?”
In the past, he wouldn’t have paid any attention to a minor character like Chen Yue, much less speak to her so politely. But now, things were different. With Yang Kai's achievement, anyone who was related to him would naturally rise.
Chen Yue shrank her neck and stepped aside, saying, “Sirs, please come in. My family’s Young Master invites you in.” She used to call Yang Kai 'Senior Brother Yang', but after the incident with Zhao Xingchen, she no longer had the face to call him that, so she simply followed Yue He's way of calling him.
Chen Tian Fei was relieved and smiled, “Thank you for your trouble, Young Lady Yue.” Saying so, he secretly stuffed a Space Ring into her hand.
Chen Yue didn’t notice it for a moment and simply accepted it. By the time she reacted, the several Managers of Scarlet Star had already disappeared.
Staring blankly at the Space Ring in her hand, Chen Yue blinked and quickly realized what was happening. Sweeping her Divine Sense over it, she discovered that there were three thousand Open Heaven Pills inside, causing her heart to skip a beat.
For any Emperor Realm master, three thousand Open Heaven Pills was a considerable amount of resources. She had only just sent a message, yet she had already obtained such a great benefit.
This was the first time she had experienced such a thing, so Chen Yue’s heart was pounding as she looked around and found that there was no one around. Feeling somewhat guilty, she put away her Space Ring and closed the door.
The several Managers of Scarlet Star entered the mansion and under Chen Tian Fei’s lead, walked towards the main hall.
This mansion had been arranged by Chen Tian Fei for Yang Kai, so he naturally knew what was inside.
As they walked forward, Chen Tian Fei even sent a voice transmission to the Chief Manager, “Chief Manager, the situation with Sword Pavilion is still unclear. If that little brat has any disrespect, you must be patient and not lower yourself to his level.”
The Chief Manager couldn’t help laughing, “Fatty, why are you so long-winded? This King isn’t a three year old child, how could I not know what’s important?”
Chen Tian Fei smiled awkwardly, “Naturally, Chief Manager is wise, I’m just afraid that little brat will not know his limits.”
As he spoke, he turned a corner and arrived at a courtyard, where he saw several dozen people bustling about. These people were none other than Guo Ziyan and the others, seemingly busy with something. From time to time, they would cheer happily, as if they had received a great deal of benefits.
'Traitor!' Chen Tian Fei cursed in his heart. Originally, he didn’t want to pay attention to these people, but after glancing around and seeing the situation in the courtyard, he suddenly froze in place, his face turning pale.
As soon as he stopped, the people behind him also stopped and followed his gaze, all of them stunned on the spot, their eyes flashing with fear and disbelief. Lady Qin even let out a soft cry and covered her red lips.
Bei Yushan was caught off guard and almost bumped into the Ouyang Brothers, stopping and scratching his head, “What’s wrong?”
No one answered him. The several Managers of Scarlet Star were frozen in place as if someone had cast a Fixed Body Art on them, and a chill ran down their spines.
Bei Yushan looked over and immediately cried out, “Hey, where did all these Space Rings come from?”
The courtyard was filled with Space Rings, one after another. There was no way to count them, but at a glance, there were at least forty or fifty thousand.
This cry startled the busy Guo Ziyan and the others, and when they looked up, they saw several Managers of Scarlet Star, even the usually elusive Chief Manager was present, so they immediately understood what was going on.
Although they weren’t Scarlet Star's disciples now and didn’t need to bother with them, Chen Tian Fei and the others had been building up their prestige for a long time, so when they saw these Managers arrive, they were at a loss.
Guo Ziyan was the first to come back to his senses and said in a low voice, “Don’t just stand there, continue with your work. Sir handing this matter over to us is because he trusts us, so no one should think about keeping it for themselves. If I find out about it, don’t blame me for not giving you face.”
“Yes!” Everyone responded in unison, quickly lowering their heads and continuing to work.
The Chief Manager slowly turned his head and gestured towards Chen Tian Fei with a solemn expression.
Chen Tian Fei understood and moved his meatball-like body through the sea of Space Rings, arriving next to Guo Ziyan and cupping his hands with a smile, “Great Commander Guo!”
Guo Ziyan didn’t want to have any kind of communication with Chen Tian Fei and the others, after all, they had relied on Scarlet Star for a living before, but now that they were in front of him, it wouldn’t be appropriate for him to ignore them, so he quickly bowed and asked, “Is there something you need, Manager Chen? If you want to find my Lord, my Lord should be at the guest hall.”
Chen Tian Fei smiled and said, “I’ll go later, I just want to ask… where did these Space Rings come from?”
Guo Ziyan said, “My Lord brought it back from Sword Pavilion.”
“The Sword Pavilion!” Chen Tian Fei’s mouth twitched as he silently gulped. Although he didn’t want to believe it, he had to!
When he saw these Space Rings before, he had already guessed it, and Guo Ziyan’s words had undoubtedly confirmed his guess.
Only a single Star City’s Space Ring could produce several tens of thousands of them! If he were to collect all the Space Rings of the cultivators in Scarlet Star City, it would probably be about the same number.
This was a Space Ring from the Sword Pavilion. A single Space Ring represented a life, and tens of thousands of Space Rings represented tens of thousands of lives!
That brat had gone to slaughter Sword Pavilion's Star City!
Chen Tian Fei couldn't get back his senses, it was only after the Chief Manager called him that he wake up.
Staring blankly at the Chief Manager, Chen Tian Fei's mouth twitched as if he wanted to say something, but no words came out.
This time, he was truly frightened. Because of the grievances between him and the Sword Pavilion, he had single-handedly slaughtered his way over and returned unscathed, even slaughtering an entire Star City.
What a cruel method, what a ruthless temperament.
How could they provoke such a person? Scarlet Star had probably kicked an iron plate this time. If they were not careful, Sword Pavilion’s fate would be their tomorrow.
If he could slaughter an entire Star City, he wouldn’t mind slaughtering a second one.
Chen Tian Fei even had the urge to turn around and run as far away as possible.
However, the Chief Manager had already taken the initiative to walk forward, so he could only grit his teeth and follow. Whether it was a blessing or a curse, he could not avoid it. What should come would come.
