What Meng Qi was worried about was that if he were to be turned into ink disciple again, the secret of the Void Corridor would definitely be lost, and the 3000 Worlds would have to suffer the attacks of the Ink Clan’s army.
No one dared to bet on such a small possibility, and Meng Qi was willing to pay with his life.
Although he understood the reason behind this, every time he saw the current situation and thought of Meng Qi, Yang Kai still felt somewhat regretful.
In this world, besides him, no one else knew that there was once a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator from Exquisite Paradise who had given up his life to protect a secret that concerned the stability of 3000 Worlds.
Since ancient times, countless Human Race masters had rushed to the Ink Battlefield, using their blood and lives to stop the Ink Clan from invading.
In the 3000 Worlds, besides the higher-ups and elite disciples of the Cave Heaven Paradise, most people had never even heard of the existence of the Ink Clan.
The Cave Heaven Paradise had a great contribution to this vast universe.
“Something’s happening,” In the Ink Cloud, someone called out.
The others who were resting quickly opened their eyes and used their eyes to look outside. Sure enough, they saw a large group of Ink Clans suddenly appear in their field of vision. There were four or five hundred of them, and the ones leading them were even the Feudal Lord.
The several High Rank Open Heaven masters glanced at each other and saw the eagerness in each of their eyes.
During this period of time, everyone had done many things to block their path, so they were already familiar with this. In their eyes, this group of Ink Clans was like a big piece of fat meat, and with the strength of their side’s lineup, they could easily eat it.
Most importantly, among this group of enemies, there were many Ink Disciple. If they could successfully rescue them, their strength would definitely increase.
If they had encountered such a group of enemies in the beginning, they would have had no choice but to temporarily avoid them. There was simply too big of a gap between their numbers, and now that their side only had five people on the surface, they had actually hidden a lot of helpers in their Small Universe. Naturally, they had some ideas about this group of enemies.
“Something’s not right!” Yang Kai suddenly frowned.
“What’s wrong?” The one who asked this question was a half-grown old man, one of the four Seventh Order masters, who introduced himself as Qi Taichu from Returning Yuan Paradise.
“Wrong direction!” Yang Kai shook his head.
Another one, Ning Qizhi from Danyang Paradise heard this and said, “That’s right, how did this batch of Ink Clans come from that direction?”
During this period of time, the Ink Clan they had intercepted and killed had all rushed to the frontline battlefield from the hinterlands of the Ink Clan, but this group in front of them was actually the opposite. It seemed they had retreated from the frontline battlefield.
“Are they done fighting at the front?” Shen Ao raised his brow. If that was the case, it would be good news. All they needed to do was wait for the Ink Clan’s army to retreat before they could return, so there was no need to continue hiding.
“It won’t be that fast,” Feng Ying slowly shook her head, “When has the Ink Clan’s army not attacked for a dozen or twenty years, or even a hundred years? How could they withdraw so quickly?”
“Then why did they withdraw?”
“Could it be they’re escorting something?”
The few of them whispered amongst themselves, each expressing their own opinions, but none of them could say anything.
Seeing that the enemy was getting closer to them, Ning Qizhi asked, “Do you want to eat it?”
All of them turned to look at Feng Ying. Although she was a woman, her strength was the strongest, and everyone here was saved by her and Yang Kai, so it was only natural for her to give the orders.
Feng Ying turned to look at Yang Kai and asked.
Yang Kai muttered to himself, “There’s no harm in eating it, but everyone should still be careful. If there’s anything wrong, quickly retreat.”
Feng Ying nodded, “Then let’s act!”
Saying so, she took the lead and rushed out of the Ink Cloud, Yang Kai and the others following closely behind.
As usual, when the five figures rushed out of the Ink cloud, the Ink Clan’s people immediately noticed and turned to look.
The leaders of the group looked at each other in confusion. The first one raised his hand and stopped the group from advancing, quietly waiting for the five of them to arrive.
It wasn’t that they weren’t vigilant enough, it was just that no ordinary human would dare to hide in the Ink Cloud. Those who dared to hide in the Ink Cloud and weren’t worried about being corroded by the Ink Force were definitely Ink Disciple. Not to mention, there were hundreds of them on their side while Yang Kai’s group only had five. The difference in numbers was too great.
This was also the reason why Yang Kai and the others were able to swagger over and successfully launch sneak attacks.
As they got closer, the expressions on their faces became clearer.
Feng Ying, who had taken the lead, suddenly stretched out her hand and grasped a long sword in her hand. Immediately after, she used her other hand to wipe the blade of the sword. As the World Force surged, a crisp sound rang out.
Thousands of sword lights appeared behind her and swirled together, instantly transforming into a several thousand feet long Sword Dragon while she hid inside the dragon’s head.
Feng Ying had used her strongest ability, the Divine Ability Manifestation as soon as she attacked, obviously intending to end this battle quickly.
The Ink Clan obviously hadn’t expected to encounter such a situation. Originally, they had thought that the five Ink Disciples who had been separated from their master were waiting for them to approach and take advantage of them, but who would have thought that they would come here with such a powerful killing blow? This sudden turn of events caused many of the Ink Clan’s members to become confused.
The face of the leader changed dramatically as he shouted, “Enemy attack!”
The hundreds of people in the group instantly fell into chaos. At the same time, the several thousand feet long Sword Dragon had already rushed into the Ink Clan army, and wherever it passed, no one could stop it. The Sword Dragon’s Sword Qi hummed and trembled, transforming into an indestructible weapon. If the Ink Clan were to touch it, they would either die or be injured. The massive Sword Dragon’s body created a vacuum in the Ink Clan army.
The moment Feng Ying made her move, Yang Kai and the others also opened their Small Universe, and several figures rushed out.
In a short period of time, the seemingly lone group of five had gathered into a group of two or three hundred people, roaring as they charged towards the Ink Clan.
The Ink Clan was stunned.
A few Feudal Lords were being targeted by Shen Ao and the others, unable to issue any effective orders. The battlefield was cut open, and the Ink Clan’s forces formed small groups to resist.
Yang Kai didn’t care. His figure was as nimble as a fish as he weaved through the crowd. When he encountered a suitable opportunity to attack, he would naturally not miss it. The Azure Dragon Spear in his hand flew back and forth, and wherever it passed, the Ink Clan would explode into a bloody mist.
With his current strength, as long as he didn’t encounter a Feudal Lord, no one below a Feudal Lord could block his spear.
However, his main task was not to kill the Ink Clan, but to save those Ink Disciples. Pure purifying light flashed as he flew across the battlefield, dispersing the Ink Force in his body one after another to restore their rationality.
In a battle of several hundred people, the situation had actually become one-sided, and it was the Human Race who had the advantage. This was quite strange.
However, such an outcome is because the Ink Clan was taken by surprise. None of them had expected that these five humans who were rushing towards them would actually have such malicious intentions.
Feng Ying’s Divine Ability Manifestation also caused great casualties and panic to the Ink Clan army.
If the two sides were to arrange their forces and compete fairly, even if the Ink Clan was no match for them, they would not be in such a miserable state.
More and more Ink Clans wanted to flee, but how could the Human Race give them a way out? Each of them chased after the other, quickly killing them.
The fierce battle ended in less than an hour. The Ink Clan had suffered heavy casualties, the Ink Disciples had been rescued, the Human Race had suffered some casualties, but this was still acceptable.
“Martial Uncle/Aunt, this Senior Brother has some important information to inform us of!” While taking count of the battlefield, someone lead a young man straight to Feng Ying and the others.
Yang Kai turned to look at the young man and found that he was one of the Ink Disciple he had just rescued.
Feng Ying looked at him and asked, “What information?”
The young man cupped his fists with a solemn expression, “Martial Aunt, this is a trap, we can’t stay here for long.”
Feng Ying frowned slightly, “What do you mean? Speak clearly.”
The young man said, “I don’t know much, but it seems that the Ink Clan noticed something strange behind them and felt that a small group of my Human Race was stirring up trouble, so they sent some people to search this small group, wanting to find and kill them. We are just one group, and there are seven or eight other groups of people nearby, if they discover anything, they will send word to help each other. Although Martial Aunt/Uncles acted quickly just now, the reinforcements from the Ink Clan should already be on their way. Moreover, I heard from a few of the Ink Clans that the one managing this matter is a Territory Lord.”
Feng Ying and the others all wore solemn expressions.
All the doubts and illogicalities from before were now explained.
Shen Ao clenched his fists and gritted his teeth, “I was wondering why this group of Ink Clans had withdrawn from the front lines, so they noticed our movements.”
Ning Qizhi frowned and said, “Although we cut the weeds and uproot the roots every time, the Ink Clan has suffered quite a few losses recently, so it was only a matter of time before we were discovered. I just didn’t expect the Ink Clan to react so quickly.”
One after another, the Ink Clan reinforcements were unable to arrive on the battlefield. One or two of them missing had yet to be noticed, but a thousand or two thousand of them missing was bound to be exposed.
This battle was caused by the Human Race’s surprise attack on the Ink Clan’s hinterland, destroying many of the Ink Clan’s territories along the way, so it was normal for the Ink Clan to suspect that a small Human Race force was causing trouble behind them.
This group of Ink Clan cultivators had been ordered to investigate, and under normal circumstances, they would have been on guard against Feng Ying’s group of five. However, Feng Ying and the others had escaped from the Ink Clouds, so the Ink Clan’s first impression of them was that they were Ink Disciples, so the vigilance they were supposed to have relaxed, giving Feng Ying and the others a chance to launch a surprise attack.
Everyone acted quickly. Although they had killed all of the Ink Clan’s forces, the news must have already spread and the nearby Ink Clan forces should be on their way to support them.
