Yun Xinghua was stunned and couldn’t help shouting, “Old Sir, did you recognize the wrong person? I didn’t do such a thing, take a closer look.”
“Shut up!” Qi Changying shouted, his eyes spitting fire, “Despicable little bastard, you still dare to quibble? This old master saw with his own eyes what you did that day, how could it be fake? This kind of blood feud, if you don’t repay it, this old master will swear to never be human!”
Yun Xinghua’s lips twitched as he turned to look in Yang Kai’s direction, begging, “Sir, this subordinate is innocent, this subordinate didn’t do anything, please save me!”
Old Hong smiled coldly and patted Qi Changying’s shoulder, “Does Brother Qi recognized him?”
Qi Changying closed his eyes, turned around, and said in a low voice, “Yes!”
Qi Changying’s heart was burning with anger, but he had no way to vent it, so he could barely breathe! He had lived for so many years and had even broken through to the Fourth Order, so how could he be a fool? On that day, he had been ambushed, his Sect’s treasures had been stolen, his Sect’s disciples had suffered heavy casualties, and the future personal disciple of Mountain Sea Pavilion had died under his eyes. Qi Changying felt like his heart was being stabbed by a knife.
At that time, he had indeed thought that the one who had attacked him was the Void Land, but after thinking about it carefully, why would the Void Land do such a thing? Wasn’t this just a smear of their own reputation? He had indeed snuck into the Void Star City and secretly investigated Yun Xinghua, discovering that Yun Xinghua was not the same person who had attacked Mountain Sea Pavilion that day.
He faintly felt that someone was using the Void Land’s reputation to stir up trouble and smear the Void Land’s reputation. However, before he could find out the truth, Old Hong came to him and began a long conversation, his tone filled with care and concern, reprimanding the Void Land several times over. In the end, Old Hong tactfully asked him to come out and identify the thief and offer him great benefits.
At this moment, how could Qi Changying not understand what was happening?
The Void Land was a place where the tallest tree attracts the wind, and the Mountain Sea Pavilion just so happened to be caught up in this dispute. The only reason he was able to escape that fateful day was probably because the other party had deliberately spared his life.
At this point, what choice did Qi Changying have? [Hoogs: in the end, you're just a worthless who's scared of death. Instead of avenging your disciples, you work with the people who killed them? pft]
Rejecting Old Hong's proposal might allow him to maintain a clear conscience, but it would definitely be detrimental to some people. If those vicious people dared to openly intercept and kill the Mountain Sea Pavilion’s ship, they might not necessarily dare to attack the headquarter of Mountain Sea Pavilion. On the contrary, if he agreed to it, he might even receive some compensation.
The Mountain Sea Pavilion could no longer endure any more suffering. The disciple with the most potential had died and most of the Sect’s wealth had been lost. If he were to return like this, the Mountain Sea Pavilion would not be able to recover for several hundred years. However, if they could obtain some compensation, their days would definitely be much better.
As such, even though Qi Changying was well aware of this, he had no choice but to cooperate with Old Hong and lie through his teeth. He had to plan for the future of Mountain Sea Pavilion.
“Boy, the Mountain Sea Pavilion’s Old Brother Qi has personally pointed out this matter. This is irrefutable evidence, do you still want to deny it?” Old Hong shouted.
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “If you want to condemn someone, there’s no need!”
As soon as these words left his mouth, a number of people began shouting from all directions. These were all representatives from the forces that had been attacked in the Void Territory. Some were cursing, some were crying, and the scene was extremely lively!
Yang Kai looked around coldly before fixing his eyes on Kong Feng and softly asking, “Since Union Master Kong has come here personally, could it be that your noble Union also has a ship accident in the Voir Territory?”
Kong Feng smiled lightly, “That’s right, the lower disciples of the Union are in trouble, their belongings have been seized, and the disciples have died. As the Union Master, I naturally have to seek justice for them!”
Yang Kai asked, “Then what justice does Union Master Kong want?”
Kong Feng gently tapped the armrest of his chair and lightly said, “If you know what’s good for you, then close this protective array and bind your own hands and feet before following this Union Master. Don’t worry, this Union Master will investigate carefully. If this matter wasn’t done by your Void Land, I will definitely clear your name.”
Yang Kai sneered, how could he believe him? However, he still nodded lightly and said, “Union Master Kong’s reputation is great, I can trust your words.”
Kong Feng raised his brow, “Since you trust me, why don’t you hurry up and come over?”
Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “Union Master Kong, please wait a moment. I don’t know when I’ll be able to return, so I’ll speak with my family first.”
Saying so, he didn’t give Kong Feng any chance to object and directly disappeared into the void.
Kong Feng’s brow wrinkled as he faintly felt that Yang Kai had some kind of trick up his sleeve, but after thinking about it carefully, he realized that his side was too strong to resist with just a single Void Land. In the face of absolute strength, any kind of trick was a joke.
At first, he didn’t attack because he was afraid he would destroy the Void Land. There was a big secret hidden here, so he didn’t want to make a big fuss until he learned the truth.
Pondering for a moment, he secretly sent a voice transmission, “Junior Sister Luan, your chance has come.”
Luan Bai Feng smiled at Kong Feng, “What is Union Master Kong referring to?”
Kong Feng said, “Don’t you want that Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage woman? This woman’s name is Yue He, and she listens to Yang Kai’s every word. When Yang Kai comes, you’ll be responsible for restraining Yue He, and I’ll be responsible for capturing Yang Kai. As long as I can restrain Yang Kai, Yue He won’t resist. When the time comes, you can crush her!”
Luan Bai Feng’s beautiful eyes lit up when she heard this and she licked her red lips, “That’s for the best.” She naturally knew why Kong Feng wanted her to deal with Yue He. After all, the other party was also a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage master and possessed extraordinary strength. If they really fought, it was hard to say who was stronger and who was weaker, but if she could capture a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage mining slave, this little risk was worth taking, so she didn’t try to bargain.
As the two of them spoke, a figure flashed beside Yue He and Yang Kai appeared again.
Kong Feng was slightly surprised, “So fast?”
He had thought that Yang Kai would definitely try to delay him for a while, but who would have thought that Yang Kai would come back so soon?
Yang Kai chuckled, “There’s nothing I need to explain, Union Master Kong. This little brat’s cultivation is too low, so I don’t have any sense of security on my own. Is it alright to bring my Left Protector along?” Saying so, he pointed at Yue He.
Kong Feng lightly replied, “She’s the only one.” He had already anticipated this situation. With his and Luan Bai Feng’s strength, Yue He following him wouldn’t be able to cause any waves, they would only be walking right into a trap, so he naturally wouldn’t refuse.
Luan Bai Feng frowned slightly, vaguely feeling that something was wrong, but most of her attention was now focused on Yue He, so she didn’t think too much about it.
“Naturally!” Yang Kai nodded.
Giving Yue He a meaningful glance, Yang Kai strode forward while Bian Yuqing flashed back into the Void Land.
Kong Feng waved his hand and opened the restriction around the flying ship.
In a few steps, Yang Kai and Yue He arrived on the ship and landed on the deck.
In the next moment, Kong Feng and Yang Kai both shouted, “Attack!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Kong Feng stretched out his hand and grabbed towards Yang Kai. Luan Bai Feng’s petite figure leapt towards Yue He, and at the same time, Yue He raised her hand and summoned a small flower umbrella. With a quick twist, the small flower umbrella flew towards Luan Bai Feng and Kong Feng, blocking out the light in front of them.
As Yang Kai retreated, he took out his Six Directions Wishful Bag and waved his hand, summoning a dozen figures.
These dozen or so figures, led by Mo Mei, immediately surrounded Yang Kai as soon as they appeared, each of them circulating their World Force to attack in all directions.
Heavenly Sword Union is a top Second Class force with extraordinary strength. In this trip to the Void Land, besides Kong Feng, who was a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, there were several Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivators on the ship, as well as countless Fourth Order and Third Order cultivators.
However, the dozen or so people who had suddenly appeared, with the exception of Mo Mei who is a Sixth Order, were all Fifth Order, so when this sudden change occurred, no one could react.
By the time they came back to their senses, the fierce attacks had already arrived.
In the blink of an eye, miserable screams rang out as blood splashed everywhere and corpses fell to the ground.
In the blink of an eye, Heavenly Sword Union suffered heavy casualties, more than a dozen people below the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage had died, and the other disciples were even more helpless. Pang Duo, Jin Yuan Lang, Mu Qianxuan, and Gong Yangxi all rushed towards Lu Xue and the others.
The Heavenly Sword Union disciples guarding Lu Xue and the others weren’t very strong, because Lu Xue and the others’ cultivation had been sealed, so they didn’t need to be too strict.
Seeing Pang Duo’s group of four charge towards them like ferocious tigers, these people were stunned for a moment, not knowing what to do.
A brief moment of hesitation was the end of their lives. The four Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage masters worked together to cut down many of the guards, protecting Lu Xue and the others as they retreated into the encirclement.
At this moment, Yue He called out, “Young Master!”
As soon as her voice fell, the small flower umbrella exploded, causing Yue He’s face to pale slightly as she spat out a mouthful of blood. Her artifact had been destroyed, causing her mind to tremble as she suffered some damage.
However, there was nothing she could do about it. If she wanted to save people under these two Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, she had to do so.
Kong Feng’s face was ashen as he roared, “Brat, you’re courting death!” Never had he thought that in such a situation, Yang Kai would dare to take the initiative to attack him. In his heart, he was determined to capture this brat and make him taste the cruelest torture in the world!
However, when he looked up, Kong Feng was stunned for a moment because his family’s ship was filled with broken limbs and torn flesh. Countless disciples had died, and even more than a dozen Open Heaven Stage cultivators below the Fifth Order had died.
On the opposite side, a dozen Open Heaven Stage cultivators formed a circle, protecting Yang Kai, Lu Xue, and the others as they rushed towards the Void Land.
How could there be so many Open Heaven Stage masters in the Void Land? Kong Feng was at a loss, but what made him even more shocked was that the dozen or so people who had suddenly appeared were all Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, and the woman in the lead was a Sixth Order!
Luan Bai Feng also realized that something was wrong, and after breaking free, she glared at him coldly and grit her teeth, “I was too careless!”
It was only at this moment that she finally understood what was wrong. Yang Kai had said that Yue He was the Left Protector, and since there was a Left Protector, there must be a Right Protector! Now, it seemed that this Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage was the Right Protector of the Void Land!
