Lu Anguo’s figure was like an eagle striking a rabbit as he pounced forward, his iron tower-like physique giving off a great pressure. When a timid person faced such a violent blow, it was likely that they would be terrified before even exchanging blows, and once their aura was released, even if their strength was equal, they would not be his opponent.
Yang Kai’s expression remained the same, without the slightest hint of panic. Contrary to Lu Anguo’s expectations, Yang Kai also leapt up and unsheathed his left hand’s narrow saber, releasing a brilliant light.
Two figures crossed each other and landed heavily on the ground, emitting a dull thud.
Lu Anguo’s eyes went wide as he covered his neck with his hands, but between his ten fingers, a large amount of blood gushed out, his eyes filled with disbelief.
In the arena battle, he had concealed his true strength, so after being defeated by Yang Kai’s blade, he was quite unwilling to admit defeat. He had waited for Yang Kai he to show him his true strength.
Unexpectedly, the result was like this.
This strike was exactly the same as the one on the stage, but it was three times faster!
He was also unable to block it.
However, on the stage, Yang Kai had shown mercy and didn’t take his life, but this time's attack send him to the underworld!
Lu Anguo couldn’t figure out how Yang Kai had managed to slash out with his blade. It was an impossible angle, and in an instant, it was not something a human could control, yet Yang Kai had done it.
As a result, all the blood in his body was flowing out, causing Lu Anguo’s body to turn cold. With such good skills, how could he possibly go to the Meng Mansion to become a guard?
No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t stop the blood from gushing out. Lu Anguo let out a strange laugh from his throat, he didn’t want to die so soon. With a plop, he knelt on the ground and endured the fear and pain of death.
Yang Kai sheathed his saber, not even sparing Lu Anguo a glance as he strode forward.
However, after taking only two steps, he staggered and almost fell to the ground.
He didn’t know what kind of level Lu Anguo has, based on the standards of this Samsara World's martial strength, but he was certain it wasn’t too low.
In terms of true strength, the strength he currently possessed was inferior to Lu Anguo’s. The head-on clash in the arena had already proven this point.
If it was a cultivator born and raised here, facing an expert like Lu Anguo, they would undoubtedly lose.
However, he is still a Sixth Order Open Heaven stage cultivator and possessed a vision and judgment far beyond that of any cultivator in this world. In Lu Anguo’s opinion, this was an opportunity that was difficult to grasp, but it wasn’t difficult for him.
However, there was a price to pay.
His chest had been punched by Lu Anguo, so three of his ribs should have been broken, and his throat was filled with blood.
Yang Kai forced himself to swallow it and stabilized himself before arriving in front of Lu Anguo’s horse.
This horse had suffered the force of Lu Anguo’s flight, and its four limbs had been broken. At this moment, it was lying on the ground, wailing miserably, while the human-shaped object in the black bag on its back was still struggling and whimpering.
Yang Kai opened the bag and a beautiful and flustered face filled with tears appeared in front of him. The bumpy road caused her hair to become a bit messy, and she should have been crying for a long time. Her eyes were completely red, making her look quite pitiful.
Looking at this familiar face, Yang Kai smiled.
Long time no see, Senior Sister Qu!
Her current identity was the Eldest Young Lady of the Meng Mansion.
The Eldest Young Lady’s panicked and frightened eyes seemed to be comforted by this smile, instantly calming down as she stared at Yang Kai, a trace of doubt flashing across her beautiful eyes.
The person in front of her seemed very familiar, but she had never seen him before. This feeling filled her with confusion.
Yang Kai reached out and took out the cloth from her mouth before taking a deep breath and saying, “Eldest Young Lady, don’t be afraid, I am the guard of the Meng Mansion. In order to save you, the thief who held you hostage was killed by me!”
Only then did the Eldest Young Lady see the corpse kneeling on the ground. The bright red blood on the ground rushed into her vision, causing her beautiful face to pale. With a scream, she instinctively rushed towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai let out a muffled groan as blood flowed from the corner of his mouth.
The broken ribs on his chest seemed to have become more serious after being hit by Eldest Young Lady.
Hearing this voice, Eldest Young Lady looked up and saw the pain on his face. She couldn’t help asking, “Are you injured?”
“It’s not a big deal,” Yang Kai helped her up, “It’s not a good place to stay, we need to hurry back to Meng Mansion.”
Eldest Young Lady nodded repeatedly.
Yang Kai led her to the horse he was riding and helped her onto it. Just as he was about to leave, he suddenly heard a faint sound from afar.
Turning his head, he saw a cloud of dust in the distance, as if a number of knights were flying towards them.
Yang Kai quickly pointed in a certain direction, “Young Lady, go that way? Quickly, don’t stop!”
Eldest Young Lady looked down at him, “What about you?”
Yang Kai grinned at her, “I’ll rest for a while before I leave!” Saying so, he pulled out his saber and patted the horse’s hip.
With a loud neigh, the horse carried Eldest Young Lady away.
Yang Kai turned around and placed the narrow saber in his right hand, waiting.
The reinforcements from Treasure Field Peak had arrived, and the dust cloud in the distance should be the tracks of the Treasure Field Peak bandits.
Perhaps they had previously agreed to meet somewhere, but Lu Anguo had not appeared for a long time, so they had taken the initiative to come here.
The lineup of more than a hundred riders entered Yang Kai’s field of vision, and he licked the blood from the corner of his mouth, unable to conceal his excitement and fighting spirit.
Here, he didn’t have any Space Laws to rely on, nor did he have a powerful Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation. All he had was the strength and experience the Samsara World had given him.
Even so, blocking a hundred enemies by himself was extremely unrealistic. This was practically a death trap, but it greatly stimulated his fighting spirit and ferocity.
If he died here in the Samsara World, what consequences would there be? Yu Xiangdie had never told him about this.
However, Yang Kai knew that he would not die. If Senior Sister Qu’s heart barrier was not broken, she would not be able to enter the next cycle.
Behind him, the sound of horse hooves rang out again, causing Yang Kai to frown as he saw the Eldest Young Lady return.
Her pretty face was pale as her beautiful eyes stared towards the approaching Hundred Horse Riders lineup in the distance, filled with fear, but she still ran back without hesitation.
The Eldest Young Lady’s horsemanship was not bad, and when the tall horse stopped in front of Yang Kai, she angrily glared at him, “Liar!”
Yang Kai asked, “Why are you back?”
“I… I don’t know,” Eldest Young Lady was somewhat incoherent. She didn’t know why she had returned, but after sensing the situation behind her, she instinctively changed directions.
Gritting his teeth, Yang Kai grabbed the reins and mounted his horse, whispering into her ear, “Sit tight!” Turning his horse, he rushed towards White Jade City.
At this time, it was no longer realistic to let Eldest Young Lady leave alone. The other party had already seen Eldest Young Lady’s figure, so if they split up and pursued her, her situation would become even more dangerous.
It was better to stay with her.
On the horse’s back, Eldest Young Lady lowered her head and blushed.
In all her life, she had never been so close to a man before. The horse’s jolting caused her back to occasionally touch the warm and spacious chest behind her, and the heavy breathing beside her ear caused her heart to beat faster, causing her to panic slightly.
Over a hundred riders arrived at the site of Lu Anguo’s death, and after some investigation, after confirming that Lu Anguo had died, the crowd became enraged and rushed towards the direction Yang Kai and the Eldest Young Lady had fled.
Previously, Yang Kai had chased after Lu Anguo on a fast horse, relying on the difference in the horse’s leg strength. After all, the speed of carrying a person was different from carrying two people.
That was why he was able to catch up to Lu Anguo.
But now, the situation had reversed. The only difference was that he was all alone while Treasure Field Peak is coming in groups.
As the distance between them gradually shortened, the sound of horses’ hooves striking the ground behind them became louder.
The Eldest Young Lady was no longer in the mood to be confused. For a moment, her expression became somewhat panicked, but after thinking about something, she calmed down.
A piercing sound rang out as the distance between the two sides was shortened to a single arrow. Among the pursuing Treasure Field Peak bandits, there were some who were proficient in the art of archery, when they drew their bows and shot an arrow, it missed its mark and landed ten meters to Yang Kai’s left.
More and more arrows flew out from behind, the sound of them breaking through the air never stopping.
Most of the arrows didn’t pose much of a threat to Yang Kai, and the few that did were all turned around by Yang Kai and slashed down with his blade.
Behind them, the hawk-nosed man leading the charge was dumbstruck. Yang Kai’s performance had exceeded his expectations. Only now did he realize that Lu Anguo’s death was not unjust!
This kind of reaction speed and vision was definitely an expert!
The Meng Mansion still had such an expert? He couldn’t help feeling excited. Lu Anguo had died, so if he could recruit this person, he would definitely be able to make up for his losses.
However, the prerequisite was to capture him alive.
As the distance between them shortened, more arrows flew towards them. Although Yang Kai tried his best to intercept them, there were still some gaps.
A sharp arrow pierced the horse’s leg, causing it to almost fall. Fortunately, Yang Kai reacted quickly and pulled the reins, using his own strength to stabilize it.
They could not escape!
Originally, they were not as fast as the other party, but now that their horse was injured, it was even worse.
The distance from White Jade City was at least three hours away!
Yang Kai had hoped that someone from the Meng Mansion or the City Lord’s Mansion would come to support him, giving him a chance to survive, but until now, he had not seen anyone.
Now that he had to save himself, Yang Kai tried his best to recall the route he had taken to find this place.
The sound of something breaking through the air rang out again, and although Yang Kai had managed to cut off a few arrows, some of them had pierced into the horse’s stomach.
As Yang Kai’s horse, which had been galloping for the entire night, galloped a thousand feet forward, its front hooves suddenly buckled and it fell to the ground.
The Eldest Young Lady sitting in front of him let out a cry of surprise, but Yang Kai had already seized the opportunity to grab her soft waist. Using the momentum from the horse’s back, he leapt into the air and landed firmly on the ground.
“Hold me!” Yang Kai shouted.
The Eldest Young Lady nodded frantically and quickly wrapped her arms around Yang Kai’s neck to steady herself.
Yang Kai held the blade in one hand and used the other to restrain the Eldest Young Lady’s body, holding her in front of him as he turned around and flew in a certain direction, pushing his Light Weight Technique to its limit.
