The Holy Spirit’s Divine Sense crisscrossed back and forth, causing Yang Kai to stop and hide from time to time, greatly reducing his speed. It took him an hour to travel a hundred kilometers.
At the same time, outside the Unaging Land, the faces of the many Holy Spirits were extremely ugly, because none of their respective Bearer's auras were present.
If only this is the case. It could only mean that the strength or luck of these Bearer had been insufficient and they had died in an accident in the Unaging Land, but for every Bearer to die in such a manner was somewhat strange for the Holy Spirit.
From ancient times until now, the Unaging Land had opened countless times, but there had never been a situation as strange as this. All the Bearer had disappeared without a trace, and no one knew if they were dead or alive!
Many Holy Spirits glanced at each other, their eyes filled with confusion.
What exactly happened in the Unaging Land? Why had all the Bearer disappeared without a trace?
On a hilltop, Yue He looked around nervously, but even though she was a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, it wasn’t easy for her to find Yang Kai among these tens of thousands of people. After a long time of fruitless searching, she could only turn to Zhu Jiuyin and ask, “Have you found Young Master?”
Zhu Jiuyin’s face was so gloomy that it seemed like it was about to drip water. Hearing this, she coldly snorted, “No, I’m afraid that little brat is doomed.”
Being unable to leave the Unaging Land at the first possible moment could only mean that Yang Kai had encountered some kind of misfortune.
She couldn’t figure out why this boy, who was not weak and was one of the top existences amongst all the Bearer, would be defeated so easily. It didn’t matter if he was defeated, but he had ruined her plans. Was she unable to leave the Great Ruins Boundary this time?
However, who knew when the next opening of the Great Ruins Boundary would be? Moreover, even if the Great Ruins Boundary opened, no one would necessarily be able to enter!
“Sir will definitely be fine,” Guo Ziyan comforted Yue He, “Miss Yue He, don’t worry, Sir may have been delayed by something.”
Hearing this, Zhu Jiuyin sneered, “When the Unaging Land closes, everyone will be pushed out. Since that Yang guy didn’t appear, he will never… Huh?”
As she spoke, she suddenly turned her head towards a certain direction, her gloomy eyes flashing with a strange light.
In that instant, she clearly felt Yang Kai’s aura flash!
She couldn’t help thinking about the strange treasure in Yang Kai’s hands and suddenly realized.
With a loud bang, a violent energy burst out and thousands of cultivators were instantly annihilated, there were some Holy Spirits who couldn’t find their Bearer and were enraged and attacked.
Without any hope of leaving the Great Ruins Boundary, how could this Holy Spirit care about the lives of these ants?
Feiyi’s massive body shuttled through the crowd, sighing as it opened its mouth and released a terrifying suction force, swallowing one cultivator after another. Before, Qu Huachang had restrained it and prevented it from swallowing cultivators, but now that Qu Huachang was gone and it had no hope of escaping the Great Ruins Boundary, it naturally had to eat its fill.
The entire scene was in chaos! Tens of thousands of cultivators were in a state of panic. Many of them had survived a near-death experience in a barren land and had obtained great wealth and opportunities. They had thought that they would be able to soar into the sky, but who would have thought that before their dreams even came true, they would encounter a calamity.
One figure after another fled outwards, and in less than half a cup of tea, more than thirty percent of the tens of thousands of cultivators had died.
A hundred kilometers away, Yang Kai looked back with a horrified expression.
Fortunately, he had run fast enough, otherwise he would have suffered an unexpected calamity. Wrapped in his Shadowless Gauze again, he thought to himself, If Zhu Jiuyin really left some kind of tracking method on him, she should have noticed it by now, right?
But no matter what, this was not a place to stay for long. At worst, he would find an opportunity to contact Yue He again!
Half a day later, the commotion behind him gradually subsided and Yang Kai entered a mountain valley, quietly dispersing the power of the Shadowless Gauze and quickly covering himself again.
Not long after, a stream of light suddenly flew over from the horizon. Seeing this, Yang Kai coldly snorted, knowing that Zhu Jiuyin had indeed left a tracking technique on him, otherwise she would not have been able to find this place so quickly.
The streak of light was extremely fast and arrived not far away in the blink of an eye.
Yang Kai lifted his Shadowless Gauze and revealed his figure as he directed his eyes towards the stream of light, only to discover that the four figures within it were Zhu Jiuyin, Yue He, and the others.
However, in the next moment, Yang Kai’s expression changed drastically as he shouted angrily, “Zhu Jiuyin, are you an idiot? Can’t you see that there are people behind you? This old master is going to die because of you!”
Saying so, he turned around and ran!
Behind Zhu Jiuyin, several streaks of light were chasing after her.
Among the streams of light, the one leading them was Jin Wu, followed by Zhu Yan, Leviathan Shark, and seven or eight other Saint Spirits.
Feiyi transformed into a two-headed weirdo and chuckled, “Brother Jin Wu is really smart, how did you know there was something wrong with that lowly maid Zhu Jiuyin?”
Jin Wu coldly snorted, “If the three hostages in this woman’s hands were useless, why would she keep them? Since she left with the three of them, naturally they're not useless! But what this King doesn’t understand is, where are the other Bearer? Why is it only this lowly maid Bearer?”
Leviathan Shark coldly snorted, “Capture him and interrogate him.”
Zhu Yan said, “Only this person has appeared among the dozens of Bearer, so the Innate Spirit Fruit is likely in his hands. If we can obtain this person, we can leave the Great Ruins Boundary!”
“Then we’ll have to see who have the abilities. Eh… this boy is quite fast. Is this a Space Ability? Amazing!”
With Yang Kai’s ability and speed, it was impossible for him to escape the pursuit of so many Holy Spirits, but his Space Ability had provided him with a great advantage, allowing him to compete with the Holy Spirits.
Up ahead, Zhu Jiuyin was also depressed to the point of vomiting blood. How could she not want to secretly meet up with Yang Kai and secretly make a fortune? However, she didn’t know what was wrong with Jin Wu, but as soon as she moved, Jin Wu had already caught up to her and was unable to escape.
If she had enough time, she could still think of a way to get rid of these annoying people, but the closing of the Unaging Land meant that she didn’t have much time left, so she had no time to waste with Jin Wu and the others and could only rush towards Yang Kai.
“Little brat, don’t run,” Zhu Jiuyin quickly approached Yang Kai while transmitting her voice, “Let me ask you, have you obtained the Innate Spirit Fruit?”
“If I don’t run, am I supposed to wait for death?” Yang Kai was furious and ran even faster, “As for the Innate Spirit Fruit, of course I obtained it.”
“Show it to me,” Zhu Jiuyin’s voice trembled slightly.
Yang Kai almost couldn’t help but curse her. At this time, he couldn’t wait to hide it, but this woman actually wanted him to take it out?
However, it was no wonder that Zhu Jiuyin would make such a suggestion. Without seeing the Innate Spirit Fruit, she really couldn’t confirm if Yang Kai’s words were true or false. If they were true, this struggle would still have some value, but if they were false, there was no need to waste time.
With a solemn expression, Yang Kai raised his right hand and displayed the pattern on the back of his hand.
Zhu Jiuyin asked in confusion, “What is this?”
Yang Kai said angrily, “It’s the Innate Spirit Fruit! If that fruit breaks, it will become this thing.”
Zhu Jiuyin was stunned for a moment before suddenly understanding something, “So that’s how it is!”
“Now you’re satisfied,” Yang Kai gritted his teeth. It didn’t matter if he showed the pattern, but Jin Wu and the other Holy Spirits behind them also saw it clearly. At this moment, their eyes lit up as they realized the crux of the matter, their eyes filled with greed and excitement.
“Get close to me, I’ll take you away!” Zhu Jiuyin suppressed the excitement in her heart and sent a voice transmission.
Yang Kai didn’t even bother to turn around as he quickly dodged, not caring about his own consumption, “You should get rid of them first.”
As he spoke, Jin Wu suddenly shouted from behind, “Little brat, what benefits did Zhu Jiuyin promise you? This King can offer you double. In addition, if you can take this King out of the Great Ruins Boundary, this King can protect you for three hundred years!”
Hearing this, Zhu Yan also hurriedly said, “Little brat, this King is willing to bestow all of my collection to you, and I can also protect you for three hundred years!”
One of the Feiyi’s heads chuckled, “This King will protect you for five hundred years!”
One by one, the Holy Spirits rushed to offer their conditions, each one more generous than the last, causing Yang Kai’s heart to race.
The other Holy Spirits’ conditions were fine, but the key was Jin Wu's. This guy’s Core was a Gold Element force, and Yang Kai currently need the Gold Element. If he could reach an agreement with him, this Gold Element force would no longer be a problem.
He had thought of this point, and Zhu Jiu Yin had obviously thought of it as well. She knew that Yang Kai lacked the Gold Element force, and she had previously searched for a Gold Element treasure for him, but unfortunately, she had found nothing.
Afraid that Yang Kai would be moved by Jin Wu, Zhu Jiuyin coldly snorted, “Boy, don’t forget, these three are still in my hands!”
Before Yang Kai entered the Unaging Land, Zhu Jiuyin had detained Yue He, Lu Xue, and Guo Ziyan. Unless Yang Kai didn’t care about their lives, he would be restrained by her.
Lu Xue was one thing, Yang Kai didn’t have any kind of friendship with her. It was only because of the incident with the Sword Pavilion that she had taken the initiative to seek refuge with him, hoping to find a moment of peace.
On the other hand, Yang Kai couldn’t give up on Yue He and Guo Ziyan. The former helped him a lot while the latter was even more loyal to him.
It was precisely because she wanted to use these three to restrain Yang Kai that Zhu Jiuyin did not abandon them. Otherwise, if she had brought them along with her, she would have consumed even more energy and they would only slow down her speed.
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “Since I’ve made an agreement with you, I will naturally abide by it. You don’t need to worry, but how should we resolve this current situation?”
Zhu Jiuyin hurriedly said, “The Unaging Land is closed and there isn’t much time left. The Great Ruins Boundary can be covered in fog again at any time, and the moment the fog rises again, it will be the time for you to leave. Don’t run anymore, quickly approach me!”
“The Great Ruins Boundary is also closing?”
Hearing this, Yang Kai was overjoyed, knowing that Zhu Jiuyin wouldn’t lie to him at this time. Only now did he understand why this woman couldn’t care less about hiding her whereabouts and was so anxious to find him.
According to her, the fog in the Great Ruins Boundary could reemerge at any moment, so if she didn’t hurry up, she might end up losing everything. After a moment of hesitation, he decisively slowed down and waited for Zhu Jiuyin to catch up.
