The Dragon Bead were normally hidden under Yang Kai’s chin and were not visible to the naked eye. At this moment, Yang Kai could clearly see that the originally crystal clear Dragon Bead were covered in tiny cracks and had lost their luster.
Taking out the Dragon Bead had indeed caused great damage to Chasing Wind, but his counterattack had also damaged it.
This was also the reason why Yang Kai didn’t dare to take out the Dragon Bead so easily. Once this thing was used, its power was indeed limitless, but its hidden dangers were also great. Once the Dragon Bead was destroyed, Yang Kai’s life would immediately be in danger. Fortunately, the worst situation didn’t happen.
However, now that the Dragon Bead was damaged, Yang Kai had a faint feeling that he wouldn’t be able to activate the Dragon Transformation for a while, much less transform into a Big Dragon, unless he could repair the Dragon Bead.
He had cultivated in the Crystal Palace of the Holy Spirit Ancestral Land for a period of time, and as he cultivated, along with the purity of his bloodline, he had also awakened some of the Dragon Clan’s legacies. He knew that once the Dragon Bead was damaged, it would be extremely difficult to repair.
He had to rely on his Dragon Vein’s power to slowly nourish his body, it was a long process and couldn’t be rushed.
Therefore, to the current Yang Kai, the problem with the Dragon Bead was neither big nor small. Since he could only rely on the Dragon Vein’s power to nourish it, it was useless to be anxious.
The Towering Evergreen Secret Technique continued for a long time, and Yang Kai consumed some Open Heaven Pills before taking out a set of resources and quietly refining them to replenish his Small Universe’s losses.
Two or three days later, Bai Yi’s eyelashes suddenly twitched as she let out a slight snort and opened her eyes.
“You’re awake?” Yang Kai noticed her movement and quickly opened his eyes to look at her.
Bai Yi’s injuries were very serious, and although Yang Kai had been helping her heal her injuries, they were still external forces. Now that she had woken up, it was actually good news. As long as she could heal herself, her recovery rate would be much faster.
Hearing this voice, Bai Yi’s eyes were still somewhat blank, but she quickly remembered what had happened before she fell unconscious and was shocked, “Where is this? Where is Chasing Wind?”
Yang Kai said, “We’re still in Chasing Wind’s lair, but Chasing Wind is already dead.” Saying so, he pointed to the side.
Bai Yi turned her head and saw that not far away, Chasing Wind’s massive body was lying on the ground, his head separated from his body. The two eyes on his head were wide open as he stared towards them.
Bai Yi couldn’t help feeling shocked. Chasing Wind had actually died! When she was unconscious, Chasing Wind’s momentum had been strong, and although he had been injured by her and Yang Kai, he was still not someone a Seventh Order Open Heaven could deal with.
She had thought that she and Yang Kai would not be able to escape this calamity, but who would have thought that after waking up, she would see Chasing Wind’s corpse.
Although she didn’t know what happened after she fell unconscious, she knew that it was definitely an earth-shattering battle.
“Senior Brother saved me?” Bai Yi asked.
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “Besides you, I’m the only one here. Naturally, I saved you.”
Bai Yi’s gaze became complicated as she sighed lightly, “There’s no need to save me.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai couldn’t help frowning. These words didn’t sound right, so after a moment of silence, he said, “You should heal first. Your injuries aren’t light, if you don’t heal soon, there may be some hidden dangers.”
Bai Yi nodded slightly and struggled to sit up, silently circulating her Profound Technique.
Inside the Secret Realm, there was a moment of silence as the two of them were both recovering from their injuries. Under the obstruction of the Towering Evergreen Secret Technique, even the Ink Force was unable to erode them.
After seven or eight days, Yang Kai finally recovered. His injuries had basically healed, and the Small Universe’s emptiness had also been replenished. Although he hadn’t fully recovered, it wasn’t much worse.
Bai Yi’s recovery speed was slightly slower than Yang Kai’s, but after noticing Yang Kai’s movements, she opened her eyes and slowly stood up, bowing respectfully, “Many thanks to Senior Brother for saving my life.”
Yang Kai looked at her quietly and said, “If you really want to thank me, you should live well and kill more Black Ink Clan. Your strength is so great, if you really die, it will be a great loss to your clansmen.”
Bai Yi pursed her lips and nodded, “Yes.”
Before, Yang Kai hadn’t noticed anything, but after Bai Yi woke up, her words made him realize something.
Bai Yi obviously wanted to die!
Perhaps when she had risked her life to block Yang Kai’s attack, she had been prepared to die.
Yang Kai had saved many Black Ink Disciple’s lives, so he understood the feelings of some of them. These Black Ink Disciple’s hands were stained with the blood of their clansmen.
When they were Black Ink Disciples, they followed the orders of the Black Ink Clan, assisted the wicked, and killed human cultivators. After being treated by Yang Kai, these past events became painful memories.
After all, they had killed their former comrades and clansmen who had fought side by side with them. Such an experience was likely to become a demon in their hearts, making it difficult for them to sleep and suffer.
Bai Yi’s situation was especially obvious. With her superb archery and her powerful Seventh Order Open Heaven cultivation, Yang Kai had suffered several times under her hands, so how could an ordinary cultivator survive?
Yang Kai didn’t know how many humans had died at Bai Yi’s hands, but it was likely not just one or two.
Because of this, Bai Yi wanted to die, she felt she had no face to return to the Human Race’s camp. Her hands were stained with the blood of her clansmen, and she carried a number of vengeful souls on her back.
Seeing her perfunctory answer, as if she didn’t take his words to heart, Yang Kai frowned and said, “A single Chasing Wind can’t offset your sins. If you really feel guilty, then kill ten times or even a hundred times more of the Black Ink Clan’s people. If you die so easily, then the clansmen who died in your hands will have died in vain!”
Originally, he had not intended to speak so bluntly, but Bai Yi’s condition was clearly not right, so he could only resort to use a strong medicine.
The blood drained from Bai Yi’s face as her body trembled slightly. Gritting her teeth, she said, “Senior Brother’s teachings are correct, I will not disappoint Senior Brother!”
Yang Kai shook his head, “It’s not that I’m disappointed, it’s your own conscience.”
Bai Yi pondered for a moment before nodding again.
Yang Kai stood up and said, “That’s all I have to say. You should think about it. I’m not good at comforting others, so my words may be a bit harsh. Don’t take it to heart, it’s not convenient for you to stay here any longer, we should leave first.”
Bai Yi had no objections.
While he was healing Bai Yi’s injuries, Yang Kai had used his Divine Sense to investigate this Secret Realm. This Secret Realm wasn’t very big, so with his Divine Sense, he was naturally able to cover all of it, but he didn’t find anything of value. The Black Ink Nest was an excellent research material, but after Chasing Wind used his Secret Technique, the Black Ink Nest had completely withered and was no longer useful.
A short while later, the two of them arrived at the exit. This exit was sealed by a Secret Technique, but it wasn’t difficult for Yang Kai.
Under the manipulation of the Space Law, a gap was successfully opened and the two of them flashed out.
Returning to the void, Yang Kai immediately stood guard and did not discover anything unusual.
It had been almost a month since he had separated from the members of the Dawn Squad, so he didn’t know how they were doing.
At that time, Yang Kai had been chasing after Bai Yi, but in the end, he had suffered many setbacks and had been delayed until now. On the other hand, Yang Kai wasn’t too worried about Dawn’s side. Even without him, there were still four Seventh Order Open Heaven, and the Dawn Battleship’s performance was stronger than an ordinary team grade artifact. As long as they didn’t encounter a Territory Lord, it wouldn’t be a problem.
On the other hand, the last time Yang Kai had used the Universe Escape Law, he had not been able to resonate with the Universe Formation on the Breaking Dawn Battleship, which made him somewhat puzzled.
He wondered what had happened to Breaking Dawn.
Standing quietly in the air, Yang Kai once again activated the Universe Escape Law.
A moment later, he raised his brow. This time, the Universe Escape Law resonated with the Universe Formation on Dawn Battleship. In other words, if he wanted to, he could instantly return to Dawn Battleship.
However, although he could go back, Bai Yi couldn’t, so after confirming the resonance, Yang Kai withdrew his hand seal and called out to Bai Yi, “Let’s go.”
Saying so, he led the way while Bai Yi followed behind.
Along the way, the two of them did not conceal themselves. Although neither Yang Kai nor Bai Yi’s condition was at its peak, the two of them were not ordinary Seventh Order Open Heaven Realm cultivators. Previously, they had even killed one of the Territory Leaders, so at this moment, they couldn’t wait to encounter some Black Ink Clan cultivators.
Unfortunately, this journey back was quite peaceful, as if the entire region’s Black Ink Clan had been wiped out.
He didn’t even see any humans.
This made Yang Kai extremely puzzled. When he was chasing after Bai Yi, he had occasionally encountered Human or Black Ink Clan teams.
This war zone wasn’t peaceful at all, and the two Clans’ soldiers were constantly fighting in this vast void, so the current situation was obviously not quite right.
It seemed that while he and Bai Yi had been staying in Chasing Wind's Lair, something had happened in the war zone.
Realizing this, Yang Kai increased his speed.
A few days later, the floating continent where the fourth base was located appeared before Yang Kai’s eyes. Yang Kai led Bai Yi straight towards it, and when a Human Race cultivator intercepted them and asked about it, Yang Kai explained his identity and allowed them to pass.
In the Dawn Squad’s camp, Yang Kai barged in and a figure immediately rushed out from a tent. It was Feng Ying.
Seeing Yang Kai, Feng Ying’s eyes lit up and she let out a sigh of relief, “Team Leader, you’ve finally returned.”
Yang Kai hadn’t shown up for such a long time, so they were naturally a bit worried, wondering if he had encountered some kind of accident. Yang Kai’s status in the Human Race was special, so if he had encountered some kind of accident, the losses would be far greater than the loss of an Eighth Order Master.
Yang Kai nodded and looked at her in surprise, “Are you injured?”
Feng Ying’s aura was somewhat unstable, obviously injured.
“Nothing serious,” Feng Ying smiled.
The voices of these two people alarmed even more of the Dawn Squad’s members, and all of them came out of their retreat, all of them happy to see Yang Kai.
However, although the thirty-five cultivators from the Dawn Squad were all here, most of them were still injured, especially the few Seventh Order cultivators, whose injuries were not light.
Yang Kai was shocked, not knowing what had happened to the Dawn Squad after separating from them. He couldn’t help asking, “Did you fight a big battle with the Black Ink Clan?”
