Following the source of this power, Ding Yi looked over and saw Yang Kai reaching out a large hand towards him, the space within it twisting and distorting.
Knowing that it was Yang Kai who had saved his life at the critical moment, he was extremely grateful.
Yang Kai looked at the short man and grinned, “It's you bastard?”
As soon as he finished speaking, he sent a palm strike towards the short man, causing the World's Spiritual Energy to tremble and transform into a large azure hand that enveloped the world.
The short man’s expression changed slightly as he took a deep breath and shook the gourd vine in his hand. With a series of swishing sounds, the seven brothers flew over and landed on the gourd vine, transforming into seven small gourds.
The power of the Gourd Vine increased dramatically, and with just a light blow, it broke through the palm strike. The short man didn’t show any signs of fear and instead made a hand seal, his figure suddenly disappearing into the void.
“You still want to run?” Yang Kai coldly snorted. Activating his Space Laws, he sealed the world around him and sent out a punch.
With a muffled groan, the short man’s figure reappeared, but he had already rushed into the mountain and spat out a mouthful of blood. It was obvious that he had been hit by Yang Kai’s punch from a distance and had suffered quite a loss. Turning his head, he glared at Yang Kai viciously before disappearing again.
Yang Kai frowned, but his Divine Sense was unable to sense his existence. This was partly because of the mysterious concealment method this guy used, but more importantly, the situation on the mountain was somewhat strange, suppressing his Divine Sense. Otherwise, it would have been impossible for him to escape so easily.
“Enmity?” Xu Zhen looked at Yang Kai curiously.
Yang Kai’s sudden attack just now had made him realize this point.
Yang Kai stared at the spot where the short man had disappeared and nodded slightly.
Xu Zhen said thoughtfully, “That Divine Ability just now should be the Dao Breaking Seal, could this person be from Purple Exquisite Paradise? But why have I never seen him before? If he really is from Purple Exquisite Paradise, Brother Yang must be careful.”
Yang Kai snorted, “Who cares if he’s from Purple Exquisite Paradise, I’ll kill him!”
When he had entered the Unaging Land, Yang Kai had been ambushed by the Dao Breaking Seal in the colorful passage. If it weren’t for the fact that he had used the Dao Divine Water to reinforce the Dao Seal, he would have suffered a great loss. Although he had immediately searched for the ambusher, he hadn’t been able to find any trace of him, he had learned about the Dao Breaking Seal from Qu Huachang.
He hadn’t expected to see this Divine Ability again here.
In other words, it was most likely that the short man had launched a sneak attack on him in the colorful passage, and the various methods and information he had displayed matched Yang Kai’s guess.
First of all, this guy was proficient in a Secret Technique that allowed him to conceal his aura and figure. At that time, Yang Kai had been unable to find him in the colorful passage, which proved that this short man was also proficient in this Secret Technique.
Once again, there was no enmity without reason, nor was there any kindness without reason. Yang Kai didn’t know why this man wanted to ambush him and kill him, but if this enmity was extended by Jin Wu and Zhu Jiuyin, it would make sense.
Jin Wu and Zhu Jiuyin had a deep hatred for each other. As Jin Wu’s Bearer, the short man had received instructions from Jin Wu before entering the Unaging Land, asking him to find a way to finish him off and cut off Zhu Jiuyin’s future.
Xu Zhen said somewhat awkwardly, “Brother Yang, if that person is really a disciple of Purple Exquisite Paradise, I’m afraid I won’t be able to help.”
Although there was competition between the Cave Heaven Paradise, there were also some who were on good terms with each other. Divine Cauldron Heaven and Purple Exquisite Paradise had a good relationship, so if the two families’ disciples met outside, even if they didn’t support each other, at least they wouldn’t make things difficult for each other, otherwise they wouldn’t be able to explain themselves to their masters when they returned.
Yang Kai replied, “I won’t make things difficult for Brother Xu.”
Xu Zhen sighed but didn’t try to persuade Yang Kai, instead muttering to himself, “If it really comes to a life or death crisis, Brother Yang must be careful of this thing!”
Yang Kai turned his head and saw Xu Zhen playing with his identity token.
Seeing this, Yang Kai nodded slightly.
For a disciple of a Cave Heaven Paradise like Xu Zhen, their identity token was not just a symbol of their identity, but also had a high chance of sealing their master’s Divine Ability. For a Cave Heaven Paradise disciple who went out to adventure, this identity token was sometimes a life-saving trump card.
Xu Zhen being able to remind Yang Kai of this point was already extremely benevolent.
At this moment, Ding Yi came over to express his thanks. If Yang Kai had not used his Space Great Dao to teleport him away at the critical moment, he would have been hit by the Dao Breaking Seal. With his current state, if he had been hit by it, the Dao Seal would have definitely been destroyed.
Yang Kai’s simple act was a life-saving favor to him.
“A great favor cannot be thanked with words. If Brother Yang has any use for me, Ding Yi, or Emperor Heaven, please feel free to call on me. I will definitely not refuse!” Ding Yi was extremely generous, waving his hand as he said, “What are you all standing around for? Go inside and find that guy, I want to skin him alive!”
He wore a fierce expression, obviously hating the short man.
Two or three thousand Emperor Heaven cultivators had suffered hundreds of casualties in this battle, but their numbers were still enormous. With a single command from Ding Yi, they rushed towards the mountain.
Yang Kai said, “This mountain seems to be quite dangerous, tell your people to be careful.”
Ding Yi was stunned for a moment. He had just arrived here and was already fighting with the short man, so he really didn’t know about this. He quickly reminded his subordinates to be careful.
When the thousands of people who had gathered here saw Emperor Heaven's people taking action, they naturally couldn’t hold back and rushed into the mountain.
“Brother Yang, I’ll be going too. Let’s meet at the top of the mountain.” Xu Zhen cupped his fists and walked up the mountain.
He didn’t know if this short man was from Purple Exquisite Paradise, so it wasn’t appropriate for him to travel together with Yang Kai. Otherwise, if Yang Kai had a conflict with this man, he wouldn’t be able to help anyone, so after some thought, he decided to act alone.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “Take care.”
After Xu Zhen left, Yang Kai stepped forward. As soon as he stepped into the mountain, he frowned because this place was very strange. It was like the fog created by Little Mushroom, suppressing his Divine Sense and preventing him from probing too far.
Although he didn’t know what kind of mysteries this mountain had, he was certain that it was definitely dangerous. The fact that everyone who had entered this place had died was the best proof.
On the other side, Xiang Ying carried the Purple Bamboo and walked towards the peak of the mountain step by step, staring at the old tree at the top of the mountain with a calm expression.
Beyond thousand zhang away, another young man stepped forward. Someone turned to look at him and saw the Holy Medicine A’ Ku on his shoulder, chuckling, “What kind of strange thing is this? It’s really ugly!”
A' Ku raised his eyes to look at him, with a bitter expression on his face as he said, “You are quite handsome and has a long life!”
The man laughed and tugged at his companion’s sleeve, “This ugly thing can actually speak.”
With a cracking sound, a bolt of lightning struck the speaker’s body. This bolt of lightning was extremely powerful, and no one knew where it came from, but it was completely undetectable. Under the violent power of this bolt of lightning, this person’s body was smashed into pieces, his limbs and flesh flying everywhere.
The companions around him were all stunned, their bodies suddenly freezing in place as a chill ran up their spines. If the lightning had been just a little bit more violent, he would have died.
A' Ku looked at him and said solemnly, “You’re also quite handsome!”
As soon as his voice fell, another bolt of lightning struck the man’s body, destroying his bones!
The surrounding cultivators were all shocked. Although they didn’t know what had happened, they all instinctively moved away from A' Ku and stared at him as if he was a monster.
A' Ku looked up at the sky and sighed heavily, “I’m so bitter!”
Cracking sounds rang out incessantly. Previously, when everyone had gathered at the foot of the mountain, they hadn’t been able to sense the dangers of this mountain, but after stepping into this mountain, it was as if they had triggered some kind of invisible restriction, causing the dangers to rapidly increase.
The power of these bolts of lightning was terrifying, and ordinary cultivators would not be able to resist them. Each bolt of lightning would take one’s life.
Yang Kai had also been taken care of a few times and had been vigilantly observing his surroundings. Although his Divine Sense had been suppressed, he could still use it, but the range was very small. Even so, he had not been able to detect how the lightning had formed, and by the time he had discovered it, it was already too late, so he could only resist it.
Fortunately, Yang Kai’s body was sturdy, so he was able to endure a few strikes of the Thunder without any problems, but his clothes were still in tatters.
“Be careful of that fog!” Pu Baixiong suddenly shouted.
He and Little Mushroom sat on Yang Kai’s left and right shoulders, both of them vigilantly observing their surroundings. At this moment, when they noticed something, they immediately warned.
Yang Kai turned his head and saw a gray mist drifting over towards the dozen or so people nearby.
The dozen or so people didn’t pay too much attention to it, but after this gray fog drifted away from their position, a terrifying scene appeared.
A dozen or so white skeletons were scattered all over the ground.
In the blink of an eye, more than a dozen lives had been lost here without a single sound.
After devouring the flesh and blood of more than a dozen people, the fog drifted towards another group.
Only now did someone cry out, “This isn’t fog, this is a bug!”
This gray fog was actually made up of countless tiny insects that couldn’t be seen with the naked eye.
Seeing the insect fog fly towards them, some of the people in the group immediately panicked and attacked with their Divine Abilities.
The insect fog broke apart, transforming into a dozen or so streaks that instantly broke through to the front of this group of people and drilled into their bodies through their nostrils. In an instant, these people trembled and screamed as if they had suffered a great deal of torture.
However, in just an instant, the screams stopped.
The flesh and blood disappeared, and the living creatures were reduced to bones that scattered about. The insect fog grew larger and condensed back into a mass that rushed towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai’s expression became serious as he realized just how terrifying the dangers of this mountain were. It was one thing for lightning to appear in the sky, but if he had some kind of method to resist it, he would be able to resist it. This insect fog seemed to be even more powerful than the lightning, making it impossible to guard against!
