Old Demon asked, “What is the matter, Madam Yue?”
Seeing Xue Yue’s solemn and excited expression, he looked out of the hall and immediately realized something.
However, following her gaze, there was nothing there. The nine peaks were currently protected by Star Master Xia Ning Chang’s power, so it was impossible for the Great Desolate Star Field’s people to invade.
Xue Yue suppressed the excitement in her heart and walked out of the hall step by step. When everyone saw this, they all glanced at each other before following her out of the hall.
Meng Wuya glanced over at Old Demon, both of them slowly shaking their heads, not knowing what to do.
Suddenly, the Nine Peaks Formation trembled.
Meng Wuya’s expression changed, “Enemies are attacking.” The rest also seemed to be facing a great enemy.
Xue Yue raised her hand, “Don’t be nervous.”
As soon as she said this, everyone calmed down and looked up, only to see that the Great Formation was rumbling as it split apart, not because it had been broken through by the enemy but because it had opened on its own.
The control method of this Great Formation was in Xue Yue’s hands, so other than her, only Xia Ning Chang could control it. Now that Xue Yue had not made a move, the Great Formation had automatically opened. Obviously, it was Xia Ning Chang’s doing.
Before they could figure out why Xia Ning Chang was doing this, a figure suddenly emerged from the fog. Although it didn’t seem like it was moving, it appeared in front of everyone in just a few steps, so fast that no one could react.
Everyone’s eyes were fixed on Yang Kai, and all of them felt like they had been struck by a curse as they stood there dumbly. Only Xue Yue quietly stared at Yang Kai, her eyes flashing with a complicated mix of love and hatred as her eyes gradually turned red.
Yang Kai smiled at her, causing Xue Yue’s tears to flow down her cheeks. Although this man had been gone for several dozen years without any news, he had still appeared in front of her at the most critical moment, allowing her to rely on him in an instant. She was no longer as anxious as before, and her restless mood had become much calmer.
“Young Lord!” Old Demon’s lips trembled with excitement.
“Subordinate greets the Holy Master!” An Ling’er, Qian Ning, and the others also came to their senses and stepped forward, half kneeling on the ground.
“Greetings, Master!” The Ancient Demon Clan’s Li Rong and Han Fei also quickly bowed.
“Yang Kai…” Hu Jiao’er and her sister covered their red lips and called out.
Everyone’s eyes were filled with disbelief as they stared at him, never having expected him to appear here. This was simply like a dream.
Zi Wuji was stunned, “Brother Gu, could this person be…”
“The master of Shadowed Star!” Gu Jianxin replied solemnly, frowning slightly as he tightened his grip on his sword.
In that instant, the ancient sword in his hand had actually sent out a kind of terrifying intent, causing him to be unable to summon any battle intent when he looked at Yang Kai. As a sword cultivator, this was basically impossible. A sword cultivator’s temperament was firm, and when encountering a powerful opponent, their first thought was to fight and temper their Sword Dao cultivation, but when he saw Yang Kai, his Origin Sword was actually warning him, as if telling him that no matter what, they were no match for him.
Just how high was his cultivation? It even caused the Spiritual Sword to feel fear.
When Zi Wuji heard this, he was stunned, thinking that it was him! It was actually him!
Back then, Yang Kai had acted presumptuously on Violet Star’s main star and even killed a few Violet Star masters. Later, Violet Star’s side even confirmed that Zi Long and his son had both died at Yang Kai’s hands, so their hatred for each other was absolutely irreconcilable.
However, this was Zi Wuji’s first time seeing Yang Kai, so he naturally didn’t recognize him. Moreover, what happened back then was already a thing of the past. Now that Zi Wuji needed to live under Xia Ning Chang’s protection, how could he show any hostility towards Yang Kai?
Yang Kai walked over to Xue Yue and wiped away her tears, gently saying, “Don’t cry, I’m back.”
As expected, Xue Yue stopped crying and turned her head away, not allowing him to touch her as she wiped her tears.
Yang Kai was stunned, but in front of everyone, it wasn’t appropriate for him to continue arguing. Waving his hand, he said, “There’s no need to be so polite.”
Everyone was lifted up, unable to resist.
“Where’s Ningchang?” Yang Kai looked at Xue Yue and asked. Xia Ning Chang had led him here, but now she was nowhere to be seen, which was a big problem. Adding on what he had seen before, Yang Kai immediately had a bad feeling.
Xue Yue lowered her eyes and did not answer.
Yang Kai looked up towards Meng Wuya.
Meng Wuya sighed and slowly shook his head.
Yang Kai’s face instantly fell as all of his expectations collapsed, his heart sinking as if it was sinking into an endless abyss.
“Follow me,” Xue Yue called out to him before walking towards the inner hall. Although she had many complaints about him, in the end, how could she blame him for this? She only blamed herself for leading her pursuers here and bringing disaster to Tongxuan Continent and Xia Ning Chang. She wasn’t an unreasonable woman, so her cold attitude towards Yang Kai wasn’t because she was complaining, but because she didn’t have the face to see him.
If anything happened to Xia Ning Chang, she would be the culprit!
Yang Kai stepped forward and grabbed her soft hand.
Little Cold Hands didn’t seem to have any warmth, and after struggling for a moment, she couldn’t break free, so she just let him be, not daring to look at him.
After the two of them disappeared, the outside of the hall was still silent. The long-suppressed and uneasy feeling didn’t ease much because of Yang Kai’s arrival, because everyone understood that even if Yang Kai’s cultivation was high enough to drive away the cultivators from the Great Desolate Star Field, the wounds Xia Ning Chang had suffered were not easily healed.
Another small figure slowly walked over.
Meng Wuya let out a light cry of surprise and looked towards her. In the next moment, a look of shock appeared on his face as he discovered that this small figure was actually a seven or eight year old little girl. She was extremely cute and delicate, but gave off an extremely strange feeling. After thinking about it carefully, he immediately understood why she was acting so strangely.
There was no expression on her face! The little girl’s expression didn’t change in the slightest, like an ancient well, appearing extremely strange.
In front of the little girl was a multicolored butterfly. She walked up the steps from the foot of the mountain, one step at a time, as if she was chasing after the multicolored butterfly, but also as if she was walking a path she didn’t want to miss.
“She probably doesn’t want to see you,” Outside the inner hall, Xue Yue stopped and lowered her head as she spoke. She didn’t want to see him, not because she didn’t want to, but because she didn’t want him to see her haggard appearance. As a woman, Xue Yue could understand how she felt. As a woman, she always wanted to show her best side to the man she liked.
Yang Kai gripped her hand tightly, “Thank you for your hard work.”
Xue Yue’s tears once again flowed uncontrollably, as if all the grievances she had suffered over the past few dozen years could disappear with this one sentence. Xue Yue shook her head and said, “Ning Chang is the most difficult one. You should talk to her, but don’t force your way in.”
“En,” Yang Kai nodded and turned to face the door. Lifting his hand, he gently knocked on it and called out, “Is anyone home?”
There was no response from inside the room, but Yang Kai could clearly feel Xia Ning Chang’s aura. However, her aura was extremely weak, like a thin thread that could break at any moment. This discovery made his heart ache, and at the same time, his killing intent surged. Xia Ning Chang’s current state was undoubtedly related to the actions of the Great Desolate Star Field’s cultivators on Tongxuan Continent.
All of them had to die! None of them could escape!
“If you’re at home, please open the door,” Yang Kai withdrew his murderous intent, his voice still gentle.
Still no response.
Yang Kai continued, “Ningchang, I’m back. Would you like to see me? This Junior Brother misses you a lot. I’ve been away for so many years and have always remembered you. Now that I’ve finally returned, do you have the heart to refuse me?”
He went on.
Xue Yue grabbed Yang Kai’s arm and slowly shook her head at him. Although Xia Ning Chang was normally extremely gentle and obedient towards Yang Kai, when it came to her image in Yang Kai’s eyes, she had her own principles.
Yang Kai sighed and shrugged his shoulders, “Alright then, Ningchang, you should rest more. Junior Brother will go kill all the trash now and avenge you.”
Turning around, he shot Xue Yue a look.
Xue Yue understood and followed him out.
After taking only a few steps, he suddenly heard a “Wa” sound from the room behind him.
Xue Yue and Yang Kai looked at each other, their expressions changing.
With a loud bang, the door burst open, and Yang Kai rushed into the room and helped Xia Ning Chang up from the bed. He didn’t feel the same sensation he had felt in the past, but now, his Little Senior Sister had lost a lot of weight. Although she wasn’t as thin as a bag of bones, she was probably only about seventy kilograms.
With her height, it was only normal for her to weigh at least a hundred kilograms. The thin layer of bone beneath her flesh and blood stung Yang Kai’s hand and his heart.
However, Yang Kai was not in the mood to care about this because Xia Ning Chang was actually coughing up blood at this moment. The bed was covered in a dark red color and her body was covered in a faint black aura, but at this moment, the black aura was like a living creature. Not only that, but some parts of her body had become extremely dark, as if someone had poured ink on her.
This situation was similar to when Yang Kai was overlooking Tongxuan Continent.
However, before this, these “ink dots” had been in the entire continent, but now these ink dots were on Little Senior Sister.
After counting, there were exactly seven of them!
Great Desolate Star Field, Underworld Sect, you’re courting death!
Although he didn’t know why such an unforeseen event had suddenly occurred, it was clear that the Great Desolate Star Field had made some kind of move. He had just broken the eye of the Great Formation, and now Little Senior Sister had been injured. There was definitely some kind of connection.
The black dot was slowly expanding. Although it wasn’t fast, every time it expanded, it would swallow Xia Ning Chang’s vitality, causing the black aura around her to become thicker. If this black dot were to expand to her entire body, Xia Ning Chang would likely die.
