A series of clangs rang out as several figures suddenly appeared next to the tall and thin man. These figures were either tall and fierce, short and exquisite, but all of them exuded a thick aura of Corpse Qi. Looking at their faces, all of them had green faces and sharp fangs, their hair was disheveled, and their expressions were terrifying.
“Corpse Refining!” Yang Kai raised his brow, somewhat surprised. He hadn’t expected that someone from the Underworld Sect would also be proficient in Corpse Refining. None of the cultivators from the Underworld Sect he had encountered before would know this. It seemed that the Secret Techniques of the Underworld Sect were divided into several different schools, but no matter which one, they were all related to the dead.
“En?” Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed again as he stared at one of the refined corpses, his expression immediately becoming gloomy.
“Boy, this King will capture you and carefully refine you, allowing you to become a great general under my command!” The thin and tall man stared viciously at Yang Kai and shouted. Although this young man in front of him had displayed extraordinary combat strength just now, he was not someone to be trifled with. With just these few refined corpses in his hands, even a 3rd order Origin King Realm could not do anything to him. If he was not careful, he could easily capture Yang Kai, so he did not panic, instead becoming more interested in Yang Kai’s performance just now.
The strength of a refined corpse was related to its strength when it was alive. The stronger a cultivator was, the stronger the strength they could display after being refined.
Not only was Yang Kai’s strength extraordinary, but his physique was also extremely strong. It was an excellent Corpse Refining material that he had spent many years searching for.
In his heart, he couldn’t help but want to laugh wildly. It was truly a case of searching high and low only to find it by luck. If he could refine this little brat, his status in Underworld Sect would immediately rise.
The bronze rings in his hands moved and the few refined corpses he summoned roared fiercely, each of them emitting a thick Corpse Qi as they bared their fangs and brandished their claws towards Yang Kai. Each of their sharp nails was like a long spear that was incomparably sharp, and their nails were a dark green color, obviously containing a violent poison.
A ball of fire suddenly appeared and a small Firebird flew out, pouncing towards the refined corpses. It was agile and graceful, yet noble and graceful.
The first refined corpse that came into contact with it was instantly incinerated. The Firebird did not slow down and flew towards the second refined corpse, burning several of them in the blink of an eye.
“Leave this behind!” Yang Kai shouted as he suddenly reached out and grabbed one of the refined corpses by the neck, pulling him back. The refined corpse struggled and resisted, its sharp nails piercing towards Yang Kai’s chest, but it was like stabbing a piece of metal, unable to penetrate Yang Kai’s chest.
Liu Yan tilted her head. Although she didn’t know what Yang Kai’s intentions were, she didn’t ask and instead used her flames to burn the other refined corpses.
The thin and tall man spat out a mouthful of blood, his eyes filled with shock as he stared at Liu Yan in horror, “You… you…”
Each of these refined corpses could display the strength of a Origin King Realm, especially the strongest one, who was refined from the corpse of a 3rd order Origin King Realm. He was confident that no one in Heng Luo Star Field could resist such a lineup, but now he had been nearly burned to death by a seven or eight-year-old girl, and the strongest refined corpse had been captured by the young man.
His vision blurred as the little girl floated in front of him like a ghost and looked up at him, her black and white eyes reflecting his terrified face.
He could only watch helplessly as she lifted her tender little hand and placed it on his stomach, not giving him any time to react.
“Keep him alive,” Yang Kai turned around and ordered.
Liu Yan lightly spat out the power in her hand, causing the thin and tall man’s aura to rapidly deflate like a punctured balloon. He staggered a few steps and fell to the ground, vomiting blood and nearly vomiting his internal organs.
His dantian had been destroyed and his cultivation had been crippled! For a cultivator, there was nothing more painful than this in this world. In addition to the destruction of his refined corpse just now, which had affected his mind, most of his life had been lost.
The enemy had almost taken his life with just a wave of his hand. If he were to be serious, who in this world could be his opponent? Not even the Sect Master.
Where did these two madmen come from?
Yang Kai grabbed the neck of the strongest refined corpse and allowed his sharp nails to graze his body, a complicated look flashing across his eyes.
The Refined Corpse was being controlled, constantly growling and struggling as if it had gone mad. A cracking sound came from its neck, indicating that its bones had been broken, but it no longer felt any pain, nor did it have any thoughts. It only knew how to destroy everything in front of it, so even if its bones and tendons were broken, it would not stop.
Yang Kai took a deep breath and slightly circulated his Spiritual Energy, gritting his teeth as he shouted, “Long Tianshang! Wake up!”
Pure Divine Soul power wrapped around the voice and rushed into the Refined Corpse’s mind. In the next moment, the sound of something shattering rang out and the restless Refined Corpse suddenly became much more docile. Although it was still baring its fangs and brandishing its claws, it had completely lost its fierce momentum.
His eyes flickered a few times, his originally unfocused gaze gradually becoming more focused, but this was only the beginning.
Seeing this, Yang Kai immediately understood that it’s spirituality had yet to dissipate. Perhaps it was because he had only been a Refined Corpse for a short time, or perhaps it was because Yang Kai’s strength was extraordinary, but in any case, there was still hope of awakening him, so Yang Kai immediately urged his Divine Soul to pour into his mind again, carefully adjusting his chaotic thoughts.
After the time it took to boil a cup of tea, the eyes of the refined corpse in front of him suddenly regained a trace of clarity and its struggling hands also stopped, a strange expression appearing on its hideous face, “You… you are…”
His voice was dry, as if he hadn’t spoken for a long time, or perhaps it was because his body had been damaged, making it extremely uncomfortable to hear.
“Senior Long,” Yang Kai said with a complicated expression.
Long TianShang, Yang Kai wasn’t familiar with him, but he had met him once when he came to Moon Water Star, so they didn’t have much interaction. This man was a Grand Elder of Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce, and strictly speaking, he was also Ai Ou’s Senior, so naturally, he was also Yang Kai’s Senior.
Ai Ou left the Star Field with Yang Kai and headed to the Star Boundary. The Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce’s great foundation was handed over to Xue Yue to manage, while Long Tianshang stood guard behind her to stabilize the overall situation. In fact, in terms of strength, he could have left the Star Field with Yang Kai, but he had dedicated his entire life to Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce, so he couldn’t give up his relationship with the Chamber of Commerce, so he simply stayed behind to act as Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce’s protector.
Who would have thought that after a few dozen years, he would be refined into a Heavenly Corpse, unable to move freely and enslaved?
It was only after encountering Yang Kai that he was able to awaken him for a moment. No one else could have such an ability.
“You are… Little Boy Yang!” Long TianShang’s thoughts gradually became clearer as he recalled some of the memories he had of Yang Kai, the rising star of the younger generation, Xue Yue’s husband.
Yang Kai said solemnly, “Senior Long, we don’t have much time. I want to know what happened to Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce. Where’s Xue Yue?”
The last question is what he cares about the most, Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce is gone. Ai Ou was now in the Star Boundary, so a mere Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce was nothing to him. The key was Xue Yue, he didn’t want anything to happen to her. However, with Long Tianshang’s cultivation and being refined into a Heavenly Corpse by the Underworld Sect, how could Yang Kai not worry about Xue Yue’s safety?
“Xue Yue…” Long TianShang muttered hoarsely as more memories appeared in his mind. He looked down at his hands and said sadly, “Ah, so that’s how it is…”
Finally remembering the situation he was in, he composed himself and said, “Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce is gone, Xue Yue… When Moon Water Star fell, I covered for them to leave. As for where they are now, I don’t know.”
All of his memories were focused on the shocking battle that day. He had single-handedly delayed the Underworld Sect and the Great Desolate Star Field’s dozen or so Starships before finally being captured and refined into his current appearance.
Yang Kai raised his brow, “Xue Yue escaped?”
This was a blessing in disguise. Although he didn’t know whether Xue Yue was safe or not, at least there was hope. Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling relieved.
“Have you seen this woman before?” Liu Yan squatted down in front of the tall and thin man from the Underworld Sect, the flame on her palm flickering between high and low before transforming into the image of a valiant and heroic woman. Although she was formed from flames, it was still vivid and displayed her outstanding talent in controlling fire.
She has refined the Fire Phoenix Source, so controlling flames was naturally her specialty.
Her tone was calm and her voice was gentle and pleasant, but to the tall, thin man’s ears, it was like an enchanting voice, causing him to shiver and shake his head repeatedly, “No, I haven’t.”
“Haha…” Liu Yan smiled insincerely as another flame flew out, transforming into a fire snake that wrapped around the tall thin man. It opened its mouth and floated above his head, hissing as if it could swallow him at any moment. This flame was clearly capable of easily incinerating several powerful refined corpses, but at this moment, it seemed to have lost all of its heat, not causing any harm to the tall thin man at all, making him look quite mysterious. “You haven’t even seen it, yet you say it so fast. Although I’m small, you can’t lie to me.”
The thin and tall man raised his eyes and glanced at the figure formed by the flames.
“You’d better answer honestly. There are many things in this world that are more painful than death,” Liu Yan said lightly.
“Where did she go?”
The thin and tall man said, “She and a few others escaped into a Cultivation Star. The Cultivation Star is guarded by a Star Master, so our Great Desolate Star Field has been in a deadlock over the past few years.”
“Where did she escape to?”
The thin man looked up and pointed in a certain direction.
Liu Yan turned to look at Yang Kai.
Yang Kai immersed his consciousness into his Consciousness Sea and looked at the Star Chart in the sky before his heart stirred.
Xue Yue and the others had escaped to a Cultivation Star that had a Star Master guarding it, and the direction they had taken was quite similar. If his guess was correct, they should have gone to that place.
This was a wise decision. Although that place was quite far from Moon Water Star, it was the most suitable choice.
