The deadline Yang Kai had given them was one month. If he couldn’t meet the people he wanted to meet within a month, he would visit the eight hidden strongholds of the White Lotus Cult one by one.
Such a threat was intolerable to the White Lotus Cult.
There were countless White Lotus Cult Disciples and numerous strongholds, so naturally there were more than eight of them. However, no one knew where Yang Kai knew about these eight locations from.
As such, even if they wanted to evacuate, it would be impossible.
If they wanted to ensure the safety of their home base, there was only one way to do so, and that was to eliminate all future threats!
On the last day of the deadline, late at night, Yang Kai was meditating and cultivating. After several months of hard work, he had finally managed to completely expel the residual poison from his body. The last bit of poison mixed with fresh blood was spat out from his mouth and he immediately felt refreshed. His heavy body seemed to have been freed from its shackles and became light again.
The people from Noble Spirit Palace thought that after he was poisoned, even if he was lucky enough to survive, his strength would drop drastically, so the six Vice Palace Masters worked together to force him to abdicate his position as Palace Master.
Perhaps they had selfish thoughts, or perhaps it was out of consideration for the general situation, but after Yang Kai realized his true intention in this world, he no longer had any intention of taking up the position of Palace Master of Noble Spirit Palace.
Even if no one forced him to abdicate, he would still have to abdicate himself.
He had more important things to do, and everything that had happened in this Samsara World was just an illusion to him.
A sharp piercing sound suddenly rang out, piercing the silence of the night. Immediately after, sharp arrows pierced through the doors and windows from all directions like a storm.
Sitting on the bed, Yang Kai grabbed the long spear next to him, and in the next moment, a series of clanging sounds rang out as arrows were sent flying.
However, the rain of arrows never stopped.
Yang Kai let out a low shout and soared into the sky, his figure smashing through the roof.
However, there were already a number of people lying in ambush above him. Seeing him appear, they formed an unstoppable and fierce formation and joined forces to surround him.
These people’s strengths were all extraordinary, and in a one on one fight, none of them were able to resist the might of Yang Kai’s spears. However, when they joined forces, they were able to complement each other in terms of attack and defense, greatly increasing their strength.
After fighting for more than ten breaths, Yang Kai let out a muffled groan as his body fell uncontrollably, smashing into the house and landing on the ground.
Beneath the ground, two hands suddenly reached out and grabbed his ankles, pulling him down.
Yang Kai didn’t even look at it as he thrust his spear down and stabbed it three feet into the ground, causing a large amount of blood to seep out.
The people lying in ambush above him chased after him while Yang Kai swept out his spear and engaged them in battle.
Outside, a series of screams rang out.
Xiao He made her move!
In the dark night, she was like an invisible ghost, and wherever she went, a bloody storm would follow.
A moment later, she rushed over from the periphery and met up with Yang Kai.
The people who had formed this battle formation were originally only able to fight evenly with Yang Kai, but now with Xiao He’s help, they were instantly unable to hold on.
The two of them had worked together for many years and were extremely close to each other. The masters that White Lotus Cult had painstakingly cultivated were all killed in less than twenty breaths of time.
A few drops of blood splashed onto Xiao He’s face. She dipped her finger into it and licked it, her face filled with excitement and ferocity, her murderous intent burning like a beacon in the dark night.
It was as if as long as there was a living creature in front of her, she could kill them all.
Yang Kai slapped her on the head.
Xiao He’s body shrank for a moment, but the intense killing intent in her eyes had weakened greatly. Her eyes regained some of their rationality as a look of grievance appeared on her face.
“Find someone!” Yang Kai whispered.
Xiao He sniffed and suddenly pointed in a certain direction, “This way!”
The two of them simultaneously rushed over.
Inside a house that had yet to collapse, several figures were quietly lying in wait, their auras completely concealed. Even a top master like Yang Kai had not noticed them before.
However, it was precisely found by Xiao He.
The wall burst open, and before the several figures could react, Yang Kai and Xiao He appeared in front of them.
As their eyes met, Yang Kai smiled brightly at the woman in the lead.
On the other hand, the woman’s expression was extremely ugly, and the guards beside her all had ashen expressions.
Xiao He’s eyes swept over the faces of these people one by one, a look of eagerness appearing on her face as she shot a questioning look towards Yang Kai, as if asking if she could kill them.
Yang Kai pretended not to notice, causing Xiao He to feel somewhat disappointed.
The atmosphere was a bit strange. The two sides were only ten meters apart from each other, while the White Lotus Cult side was in a hostile state. Yang Kai and Xiao He, on the other hand, were calm and indifferent, as if they didn’t take the other party seriously.
However, the more they acted like this, the more nervous they became.
Suddenly, the woman in the lead smiled, as if this smile was the only thing left in this world.
“Uncle, are you looking for me?”
Yang Kai’s eyes twitched.
In a certain life, this woman in front of him also said; "Don't be afraid, little one."
In this life, she had called him Uncle! This was really karma.
“Yes, I’m looking for you!” Yang Kai nodded.
The Saintess of White Lotus Cult, Qu Huachang, had a pure and innocent look on her face as she tilted her head slightly and asked, “Why are you looking for me?”
Yang Kai smiled slightly, but there was no killing intent in his eyes, only tenderness.
Qu Huachang asked in surprise, “Uncle, are you in love with me?”
Yang Kai calmly admitted, “I fell in love with you at first sight.”
Qu Huachang froze, as did the other guards around her.
Only Xiao He seemed to have heard something that interested her the most. Her eyes suddenly lit up as she looked at Yang Kai and Qu Huachang nervously.
Qu Huachang was at a loss for words. She had just casually said this, but she hadn’t expected the other party to admit it like this. Moreover, from his expression and tone, he didn’t seem to be faking it at all.
Although she wasn’t old, she was an expert in the human heart, so she could tell the truth from a person’s eyes and tone.
She wanted to find any trace of lying from Yang Kai’s words and expression, but she found nothing.
Suddenly, she giggled so hard that her back bent, as if she had just heard the world’s best joke.
Yang Kai just looked at her quietly, his eyes filled with tenderness.
After a long time, Qu Huachang finally stopped laughing and wiped the tears from her eyes before turning to Yang Kai and asking, “Uncle, you fell in love with me at first sight? I stabbed you!”
Yang Kai nodded, “That sword nearly took my life, so you need to use your entire life to compensate me.”
Xiao He’s face was flushed red as she became even more excited. She placed her hands on her chest, her face filled with intoxication, as if she had heard the most beautiful words in the world.
Qu Huachang’s smile gradually faded as she pouted, “Uncle, you really know how to joke.”
Yang Kai stepped forward and stared at her, “I’m not joking.”
Qu Huachang suddenly became somewhat flustered and frowned, “You are the Palace Master of Noble Spirit Palace, and I am the Saintess of White Lotus Cult. We are destined to be incompatible like fire and water. If Uncle has something to say, just say it, don’t waste your time on a little girl like me.”
“Do you think I’m making fun of you?” Yang Kai took another step forward.
Qu Huachang instinctively took a step back, but the guards around her felt threatened. After all, standing in front of them was one of the world’s top masters. This distance was too close, so if the other party suddenly attacked, they might not even have time to react.
“Is it not?”
“Of course not, everything I said is true.”
Qu Huachang stared at him for a moment before suddenly turning to look at Xiao He, “Elder Sister, has he always been this crazy?”
Hearing this, Xiao He shook her head and said, “This has never happened before, I always thought he wasn’t interested in women. Aiya, it’s rare for him to like a woman, so why don't you agree to it? Although your age gap is a bit big and he can be your father, but… but what does love have to do with age? Let me tell you, even though he’s so old, he’s still a virgin!”
Qu Huachang stared at Xiao He speechlessly. She knew of Yang Kai’s existence, so naturally she also knew about Xiao He. This woman, who came from the Green Smoke Sect but had no intention of becoming the Vice Palace Master, she had instead become Yang Kai’s personal guard. She was the nightmare of many White Lotus Cult masters, and countless people had died at her hands.
Almost everyone in the world thought she was Yang Kai’s woman.
But now it seemed that this was not the case.
Although the two of them had a close relationship, it did not break through the relationship between man and woman.
Noble Spirit Palace's Palace Master was a madman, and this woman was also a madman.
“Your White Lotus Cult has planted many people in the Noble Spirit Palace. As a Saintess, you should know that I resigned from my position as Palace Master more than two months ago. Now that I am no longer a member of Noble Spirit Palace, you don’t need to worry about anything.”
Qu Huachang snorted, “Who knows if this is a scheme of your Noble Spirit Palace.”
Yang Kai smiled, “There’s no point in saying anything, time will prove everything.”
Qu Huachang was silent for a moment before suddenly winking at him playfully, “Why don’t you prove it to me now?”
“How do you want me to prove it?” Yang Kai asked.
“Easy!” As Qu Huachang finished speaking, she suddenly pulled out her sword from the waist of one of the guards next to her. Moving quickly, she appeared in front of Yang Kai and pressed her sword against his chest. The sharp edge of the sword pierced through his skin, causing blood to flow out.
Qu Huachang was completely stunned.
Yang Kai didn’t resist at all and didn’t even try to dodge, much to her surprise.
Noble Spirit Palace's Palace Master had always been one of the top masters in the world, so although she had acted quickly just now, she didn’t believe that he wouldn’t have time to react.
Two months ago, she was able to successfully hit him because he had not taken any precautions against her.
The only reason she was able to succeed this time was obviously because the other party didn’t want to dodge, which was different from the last time.
The two of them were so close that Qu Huachang could almost feel the other’s breathing. When their eyes met, Qu Huachang could only see a pair of clear eyes, devoid of any distracting thoughts. Even though she was wielding a long sword, his expression remained unchanged, the smile on his face extremely dazzling.
Enraged, Qu Huachang thrust her sword forward again.
