“Don’t worry, I will take good care of these subordinates of yours. Don’t worry about them in the Unaging Land, serve this Queen well,” Zhu Jiuyin said with great effort.
Yang Kai nodded with a gloomy expression.
The Open Heaven Stage cultivator couldn’t step into the Unaging Land, so Yue He, Lu Xue, and Guo Ziyan could only remain outside. Their combat strength had been greatly reduced, but this was only secondary. The most important thing was that Yue He and the others were under the control of Zhu Jiuyin, so even if Yang Kai had the guts to rebel, he wouldn’t dare do so.
Guo Ziyan looked at the cultivators who had followed him to Yang Kai’s side in the past and shouted, “All of you follow Sir, you must protect Sir with your lives, understand?”
Everyone shouted in unison, “Understood.”
Yang Kai glanced at them and shook his head with a wry smile. Although they had been cultivating diligently all these years and their strength had greatly increased, if they were to encounter some kind of danger that even he could not resolve, they would likely be useless.
“Let’s go,” Yang Kai called out to everyone, and a dozen or so people quickly followed behind him and entered the gate.
In just a short time, at least several tens of thousands of people had rushed into the Unaging Land. By the time Yang Kai led a group of people into the colorful passage, more than half of the two hundred thousand people had already disappeared.
The colorful passage was like the mouth of an invisible beast, constantly swallowing all the cultivators here.
The passageway was crowded and bustling with activity. A group of people surrounded Yang Kai and escorted him forward.
Not long after, they heard an angry shout from the front, “Ignorant fools, you dare to cause trouble for my Emperor Heaven? Brothers, chop them to death!”
The next moment, violent energy fluctuations erupted from the tunnel in front of them as countless people began fighting. The power of their Secret Techniques and artifacts flew out, turning the passage into a bloody battlefield.
Screams rang out as one corpse after another fell to the ground, blood flowing like a river.
Yang Kai’s expression became strange as he looked around and saw a familiar figure.
The voice just now sounded familiar, and it was none other than Emperor Heaven's leader, Ding Yi. Ever since they parted on the Yuan Magnetic Mountain, they had not seen each other again. Recently, he had heard some news about Emperor Heaven and learned that this fellow had made a name for himself in the Great Ruins Boundary.
At this moment, in the sky in front of them, Ding Yi was carrying a Ghost Headed Machete and wearing a scarlet cloak, looking like a divine weapon that had descended into this world. It was unknown who he had a grudge with, but he was actually fighting in this colorful passage.
Emperor Heaven's group was just a motley crew, unable to resist the sheer number of people. The number of people who were fighting against Emperor Heaven was only a thousand, yet they were all surrounded and unable to escape.
However, when the two sides attacked, many of them were accidentally injured, causing even more people to be drawn into this battle, resulting in a chaotic scene.
Ding Yi, on the other hand, laughed out loud, seemingly very happy with this situation. Slashing out with his machete, he sent out a series of blade auras.
Suddenly, Ding Yi stopped and looked towards Yang Kai and the others. After seeing Yang Kai’s face, he called out happily, “So it’s Brother Yang. Brother Yang, how have you been recently?”
Yang Kai chuckled, “Not bad, Brother Ding seems to be doing well.”
Ding Yi scratched his head and chuckled, “So-so.”
Yang Kai said seriously, “Brother Ding, I want to move forward, so I hope Brother Ding can help me.”
“Good!” Ding Yi waved his hand and shouted, “Brothers, make way for Brother Yang!”
Under his command, Emperor Heaven and the others split up and formed a path. Yang Kai nodded towards Ding Yi and led Meng Hong and his men through the battlefield.
From behind him, the sounds of fighting and killing could still be heard. It was likely that the chaos would not stop for some time.
In the group, the cunning face old man was filled with admiration as he said, “Our Lord’s reputation is truly great. This humble subordinate has heard that Ding Yi is arrogant and will not give face to anyone. Over the years, more than ten Open Heaven Stage masters have died under Emperor Heaven's hands, yet he is still so polite to him.”
Lang Qingshan said lightly, “Sir’s strength is unparalleled, how could Ding Yi dare to stop him?”
The cunning face old man asked in surprise, “A blockhead like you also knows how to flatter?”
Lang Qingshan’s face turned slightly red as he angrily said, “I was just speaking the truth, how could I be flattering?”
The two of them bickered non-stop, while they continue going forward.
Behind them was Ding Yi and Emperor Heaven blocking the path, but the path ahead was much emptier. Yang Kai couldn’t even see the end of this colorful passage.
The group of people sped forward and suddenly, a large net appeared in front of them. At the same time, a sinister laughter rang out, “This road was opened by me and this tree was planted by me. If you want to cross this road, leave behind your life and wealth!”
The giant net covered the entire passage, sealing the sky and locking down the earth, making it impossible for anyone to escape, causing everyone’s expressions to change drastically.
Lang Qingshan shouted angrily, “Sir, be careful!”
Stepping out from the crowd, he punched forward, a ball of light appearing on his fist like a blazing sun.
Among the group of people who had sided with Yang Kai, Lang Qingshan was one of the few with the best aptitude. When they were discussing the rewards, he had asked Yang Kai for a fifth grade material and had refined several fifth grade forces over the years. His strength was incomparable to before.
When this punch was thrown, it left a mark in the air, and the power of the Sun’s True Fire lingered around it, as if it was lifting up a round sun and smashing it down.
However, in the next moment, he was caught by the giant net. He didn’t know what material this net was made of, but it was extremely tough and was impervious to fire and water. Even his Fisth Grade Sun's True Fire couldn’t burn it.
In the blink of an eye, Lang Qingshan was wrapped up in the net, the net wrapping around everyone.
A thin figure appeared out of thin air, with a long face like a monkey’s and a cunning face. Pinching the goatee on his chin, he chuckled, “The third batch! A bunch of fools only know how to go to the Unaging Land to seek treasures, but in this old master’s eyes, all of you are treasures!”
It had been more than ten years since the opening of the Great Ruins Boundary, so all the cultivators who were still alive had more or less obtained some harvest. This thin old man had been waiting here with a treasure in his hand, robbing all the cultivators who had passed by.
With a series of hand seals, the net suddenly shrank and tightened around everyone, causing Meng Hong and the others’ expressions to change drastically as they discovered that their strength had been completely suppressed.
Only now did he realize that this net was truly extraordinary. No wonder this thin old man dared to act like this alone.
“Let this old master see what kind of good things you have!” The thin old man stepped forward with a wretched smile, but in the next moment, he suddenly took a step back and stared at the person in the net in shock, swallowing his saliva and asking, “Sir… Sir Yang?”
“You recognize me!” Yang Kai looked at the thin old man indifferently.
The old man’s eyes flickered for a moment before he forced out a smile, “Sir Yang destroyed Thunder Light and Sword Pavilion and presided over Scarlet Star, his fame spreading far and wide, this old master has admired him for a long time… Pah, you little brat, now that you’ve fallen into my Primordial Binding Dragon Net, don’t even think about escaping. Even if you’re a dragon, you’ll still be trapped here. I heard that when you destroyed Sword Pavilion Star City, you killed tens of thousands of people and seized the wealth of tens of thousands of people, right? Once you’re rich, you’ll be rich. After this, this old master won’t have to worry about cultivation resources anymore.”
Looking at Yang Kai gloomily, the old man grinned, “Boy, if you know what’s good for you, hurry up and throw out your Space Ring or this old master will strangle you to death!”
Yang Kai said lightly, “The Space Ring is in my hands, can’t you take it yourself? I’ve already fallen into the net, what are you afraid of?”
The thin old man chuckled, “Sir Yang’s strength is astonishing, who knows if you have any other tricks up your sleeve. This old master should be more careful. First, throw out the ring and this old master can spare your lives!”
Lang Qingshan was furious, “Shameless old man, what kind of skill is that? If you have the guts, let me go! This Lang will fight you!”
The thin old man looked at Lang Qingshan disdainfully, “You bastard, is there something wrong with your brain? Since you’re a fish on the chopping block, whether you live or die is up to this old master’s whim, why should this old master let you go?”
“It’s still too early to say who’s the fish on the chopping block. Since you’re not coming over, then this king will go over,” As Yang Kai spoke, he suddenly stood up and walked forward with the large net.
The old man’s expression changed drastically as he grit his teeth and said, “Sir Yang is truly amazing. Even after being trapped by my Primordial Binding Dragon Net, you still have the ability to move. It seems this old master has underestimated you, but the power of this net is not limited to just this little bit. Freeze!”
He called out six times in a row as the hand seals on his hands changed continuously. The Primordial Binding Dragon Net's threads suddenly tightened, causing Lang Qingshan and the others to let out a muffled groan as they felt the space around them freeze, even their thoughts becoming sluggish.
Yang Kai’s pace also gradually slowed, eventually coming to a halt.
The old man wiped the cold sweat from his forehead and said with some trepidation, “I almost failed miserably, but fortunately this old master’s treasure is not bad.”
“Treasure is good, but you're not!” Yang Kai grinned, his frozen steps dropped again.
The old man was startled and jumped back a thousand feet, “How did you…”
Yang Kai stepped forward like the wind and approached the old man step by step, his voice cold as he said, “This net is indeed extraordinary. The person who is caught in this net is unable to circulate their Spiritual Energy, but there is a serious flaw, it cannot restrain the strength of their physical body! Using this net to deal with me is courting death!”
The thin old man cried out in alarm and no longer cared about his treasure net. Turning around, he fled into the distance, but before he could run far, he felt a tight grip on his neck as a large hand grabbed his neck and lifted him up like a little chick.
The old man stiffened and slowly turned his head.
“Any last words?” Yang Kai asked.
“This is a misunderstanding…” The old man smiled flatteringly.
With a loud bang, Yang Kai crushed his neck and broke his neck, causing his head to roll down and his headless corpse to convulse as blood gushed out from his neck.
The moment the old man died, the Primordial Binding Dragon Net loosened, and Yang Kai reached out to pull it off. The group of people instantly broke free, and the power that has been restrained was restored. All of them stared at him blankly.
Only now did they realize the terrifying gap between them and this young man in front of them. In this net, they didn’t even have the strength to lift a finger, but Yang Kai was able to ignore the power of this net and kill its master.
